.One Sunday. Mprning inAhe year(lB27;
as General Jackson and hie wife ware
walking toward thevlittle Hermitage
chtireb, she entreated him to take a l de 7
cided stand as Ey Christian, and to unite
with the oharch. He replied':
"My dear, if I were to do that it would
be said, all over the. country,iliat I had
done it for tbo sake of political effect:
My enemies would all say so. I can not
do it now; butd promise you that when'
once Morel am clear of 'polities * I .will

On the 23d Of:' Dee:ember, 1828, Mrs.'
Jackaon'died.- •It:wns'a terrible We'd to:
her husband, who had lovcid hill. for her
singular :xferver" and": coikkancy. age'
never quite recovered from tte:slidole
His spirit became:Wry much snbdued,
and he gave up entirely , the, use etpro-,
fane langus:ge, to
,which he had been
aWfullY addieated in his younger.days.
Mr. .14icholas •P. Trist,
was private Secretary of President jack-,
son. On ono occasion, it seemed neces-.
nary for him to enter the Preiident's
apartment after he lad , retired..fer: the.
night. He found the President, in his,
night dress, sitting at a table, with hie
wife's minaturo propped up against some-,
thing before him, and between him and
the minature lay his wife's well-worn
prayer book; from which, according to
his invariable - custom, he was reading a
prayer, before he slept. •
About this time there was a season of
special interest in Washington. The
pastor of the'church Which the President
attended, and from whom the writer has
the anecdote, called at the White Hoine;
and entered into conversation with the
President npon'the subject of personal
religion. He replied :
"No man regpects - religion more than
I do or feels mom deeply its importnace.
I promised, my wife that I would attend
to the aalvatieo. Of my soon as
the election was over, but now the cares
which engross me are,,,so ov,er whelming,
and,my cabinet -in such a divided state
that I have not a monmet's time to think
of anything but the urgencies of the pass
ing hour. But I am resolved, as soon
as I leave the Presidential chair, , and• re
tire to the seclusion of the Hermitage, to
take up in earnest the subject of religion.
It was the old excuse ; ge thy *ay far ,
this. time ; when I have a convenient
season., The hour of retirement came,
and still the General did not keep his
promise. To one who addressed him on
the subject, he wrote, in. August, 1835,
"I would long sinca have made this sol
emn dedication to Almighty God, but
knowing the wietchednese of , this world;
and how prone many are , to evil, that
the, scoffer of religion would have cried
out, 'hypocrisy !lie V 11.47 joined the church
for political effect:,''i
I ttonght it best ro
postpone this public act, until my retire
ment to the shade 'of priyato life, when
no false imputations could be made that
triightte injurious to religion." • -

Catalogue, a few days since. It appears
that Joseph Baker, of that place, and
late of Greenport, went to New York a
few weeks ago, for the purpose of ob
taeiing a wife. His first move was to
publiql,a notice, in the New -York Sun,
stating that a young widower, about 25,
years of age, having one child, and a
