for High Honors
Although Col. Washington retired to
a private station at Mount Vernon at
tho closo of tho frontier warfare, he
did not neglect his duties to the public.
Still holding tho office of adjutant-general
of tho militia, no circulated orders
for them to assemblo at certain times
and places to bo exercised and, re
viewed. So much were the Inhabitants
alarmed at the recent successes of tho
enemy, that their martial spirit re
ceived a new Impulse, and volunteer
companies began to bo organized.
Their ardor was stimulated from tho
pulpit and it was in a sermon to one
of these companies that the accom
plished and eloquent Samuel Davles
pronounced the celebrated encomium
in a single sentence, which has often
been quoted as prophetic. After prais
ing the zeal and courage which has
been shown by tho Virginia troops,
tho preacher added: "As a remark
able Instance of this, I may point out
to tho public that heroic youth, Col.
Washington, whom I cannot but hope
Providence has hitherto preserved in
so signal a manner for some important
service to his country." This was but
tho echo of the general voice, and it
is a proof of tho high estimation in
which tho character of Washington
was at that time held by his country
men, and of the hopes It had raised.
Mr. Wirt relates an anecdote of
Washington which shows lu what esti
mation ho was held by tho members of
the first Congress. Soon after Patrick
Henty returned home, being asked
"whom ho thought the groatest man
in Congress," ho replied, "If you speak
of eloquence, Mr. Rutledge of South
Carolina is by far tho greatest orator;
but, if you speak of solid information
and sound Judgment, Colonel Washing
ton is unquestionably tho greatest
man on that floor." This opinion was
verified by every act of his life. His
knowledge, on the subjects to which
ho gave his attention, was most thor
ough and exact; and all tho world
has agreed that no other man has
given such proofs of the soundness of
to Physical Fear
An anecdote is related by an his
torian illustrative of Washington's
resolution and courage. A person of
lawless habits and reckless character
had frequently entered upon the
grounds near Mount Vernon, and shot
ducks and other game. More than
once ho had been warned to desist, and
not to return. It was his custom to
cross the Potomac In a canoe, and
ascend tho creeks to some obscuro
placo, whore he could be concealed
from obsonatlon. Ono day, hearing
tho dlschargo of a musket, Washing
ton mounted his horse, and rodo In
tho direction of the sound. The in
truder discovered his approach, and
had just tlmo to gain the canoe and
push it from the shore, when Washing-
- tflftllir jsi
ton emerged from the bushes at tho
distance of a few yards. The man
raised his gun, cocked it, pointed it at
him, and took deliberate aim; but,
without a moment's hesitation, Wash
ington rodo into tho water, seised tho
prow of tho cacoc, drew it to land,
disarmed his antagonist, and inflicted
Cn him a chastisement, which ho novor
again chose to run tho hazard of on
countering. at x. 3$. 3fi
In tho course of tho year following
the French and Indian war, Col.
Washington had paid his addresses
successfully to Mrs. Martha Custls, io
whom ho was married on tho Gth of
January, 1769. ThiB lady was three
months younger than himself, widow
of John Parko Custis, and distinguish
ed allko for her beauty, accomplish
ments and wealth. Sho was the daugh
ter of John Dandrldge. At the time of
her second marriage she had two
children, a son and a daughter, tho
former six years old, tho latter four.
Mr. Custls had left large landed estates
in New Kent County, and forty-flvo
thousands pounds sterling In money.
One-third part of this property sho
held in her own right, tho other two
thirds being equally divided between
By this marriage an accession of
more than one hundred thousand dol
lars was made to Col. Washington's
fortune, which was already consider
able in tho estate at Mount Vernon,
and other lands which ho had select
ed during bis surveying expeditions
and obtained at different times. To
tho management of his extensive prl
vato affairs his thoughts now turned.
He alsd took upon himself the guard
ianship of Mrs. Washington's two
children, and tho caro of their proper-
ty, which trust ho discharged with all
the faithfulness and assiduity of a
father, till tho son became of age, and
till tho daughter died In her nineteenth
year. This union was In every respect
felicitous. It continued forty years.
To her Intimate acquaintances and to
tho nation, tho character of Mrs.
Washington was ever a themo of
praise. Affablo and courteous, exem
plary In her doportmont, remarkable
for her deeds of charity and piety, un
ostentatious and without vanity, sho
adorned by her domestic virtuos tho
sphere of prlvato life, and filled with
dignity every station in which sho
