The Last Scene in Washington's Life.
Irving's new life, of Washington, in five vol
umes has' juste been . cempleted. :In - : the fifth
Volume, after giving a sufficient narrative of
the Administration of Washington, his retire
ment frpin office, and his mode of life at Mount
Vernon,.Mr. Irving brings the'work to a close
with the' following description of the' final
yrinter had now . set in; with neeasionall y
Wind and . rain; and frost,' yet Washington still
kept: up hlsactiye rounds Of. indoor and; outdoor
avocation,: as his diary ',records. He
.was in
Tull . health and vigor dined 'out occasionally,
and had frequent guests at . Arount'Yerncni, and;
as usual, 'was pirtof everyday in the s'addle;
going the rounds of his estates,_ and, in his snit,.
iiariphraseology, ccliisiting the outposts." •
He had recently :walked with his favorite
nepliew'abotft .the grounds, showing the im-.
proVerrienti.he iatended . tOmake, and hid espe
'cially pointed out the spot %vhere he proposed
building a new family vault, 'the old one' being
darnagedhy the roots of trees which had:over . -
grown it and caused it to leak. change"
said he, Pi shall Make,: the *first - of all, for
May require it before•any of the. rest;"
"When I parteddfroth him;" added the neph
ew, ".he stood on the steps of the front : door,
*here he took leave of myS'elf and•another. It
was 'a
- bright frosty morning; he had taken his
usual ride, and the ear, healthy:fiush on hie
cheek, and tki'S sprightly • manner, 'brought- the
reirtarkfrom both of us fhat.we had never seen
the General look so well. • I have sometimes
thought him decidedly the . handsomest man 1 .
ever .saw and. when in a lively mood, skfull of
pleasantry, so ,agreeable to all, ,with wkom he
associated, that I could , hardly 'realize he..was
.the.sanie Washington,- whose' dignitY awed all
whO approached him." . • ; • •
. For some tiine paSt..Wastingtion had been oc
cupied in rn
digesting a copl'ete'system onwhiCh
his estate was to be managed for . several suc
ceeding years;` specifying the cultivation of the
several fauns, t'vith tables' designating the rota
tions of crops. It' occupied thirty folio pages,
and was.. executed •': with that clearness and
method which characterized all his business
papers, this was finished. on the tenth of De
cember, .and was accompanied by a letter of
that'date to ilia manager 'or stetaiard. It is a
valutibln document; showing, the soundness and
vigor of his intellect at this.advanced age of his
existence, and , the love of: Order that, reigned
t hroughout his 'affairs; . “Iviy greatest anxiety,"
said he on a previous occasion; 'cis to' have all
those concern's in such a 'Cleilika and distinct
form that no reproach may attach itself to me
When I have taken my departure for the land of
spirits." . • •
It was, evident, however, that, full ofhealth
and vigor, he looked forward to his long chat
idled hope, the enjOyment of a serene old 'age
in this home of his heart.
According to his diary, the.morning on which
these voluminous instructions to his steward
Were.dated was clear. and calm, but the after
noon Was lowering. The 'next day—=llth-he
notes there was wind' and rain, "and at night' a
circle round the 'Moon." •
The morning of the 12th was overcast• That
morning he wrote a letter to Hamilton, heart
ily. approvin g of a
: plan for'a military academy,
‘rhich the latter had submitted•to the Secieta- .
r) . or War. • . . • .
. .
Abbut 10.a'clock.he mounted his .horse and
rode, out as .usual to'rnalce the rounds of the es.:
tate. The ominous
. ring round . the moon, which'
'he had observed oirt he preceding night; prOved
13; fatal portent. “iybout,l o'clock," he notch
fit beganto'snovi, soon after to. hail, and then
turned to a settled cold Having on an
overcoat, he continued his rideivithout regard

was convulsed and almost sulibeatcd, Rawlins

Mrs. IVashingtori's ; .doubts prevailed,. and the
bleeding was stopped, afterabout half a pint of
blood had been. taken. . External ~i ipplieations.
were'now made to the throat, and his feet were

any relief. . .

eight and nine, and two other' physicians, .Drs:
Dick and Brown, were called in. Various rem

to no avail. • - • . •

to do as he'had every short time to continue
with us. I told him that I could recollect
nothing; burl:hoped. he. was not so near his
