ifWr rii7 to Mount Vernon They call oh the
President Speeches, Incidents; t'd.
'Yesterday morning, between nine and ten
'o'clock,1 Putnam Phalanx, 'andcr the escort
'of the officers of the Light "Infantry battalion,
and headed by the Marino Band, took up the
lino of nnCrcn-for the steamboat wharf, on their
visit to'lho'tonilrcf Washington. Great inter
'est warcverywhem' taken in their movements,
'and, asthey.passdd tlVrtugh the streets, every
body rushed rtd obtain a glimpse of them the
old Continental uniform receiving admiration
on all hands.
The ThoirmsCollyer, which had been thar
'tere'd'for'it.o occasion, left her wharf at precise
ly a qircHer past ton, and reaohei Mount Vernon
about 'twelve o'clock. Onboard the boat we
'noticed, in addition to (lie Futaam Phalanx,
'Major Davis, Captains Towers and Dubant,
Lieutenants Williams and Clark, Surgeon Butt, j
Quartermaster Toners, d privates Browcrs,
Morgan, and Ortoo, of the Light Infantry j
Major Joseph P. Warner and private II. C.
Niooly,of the Baltimore City Guard.; Brigadier
General Thomas, Captain Hunt of Washington
Territory; Glenn of the N. Y. Herald", and
others. The ladies accompanying the military
were also on board.
As tho boat approached Alexandria, 1bo
Marine Band struck up a lively air, which bad
the effect to draw to tho wharves the crowds
that bad been waiting nearut hand, who, as tho
Collycr passed by, gave three rousing cheers for
When the boot touched the wharf at Mount
Vernon, a procession was again formed, which,
to the tap of the drum, marched in double file
to the vault, the ladies of the party walking in
the rear, attended by their escorts.
The Phalanx was then formed in front of
the vault, with their anna reversed, when the
ilarine Band, under ProC Scalo, performed, in
a solemn and impressive manner, the " Mise
rere " from " II Trovatore. " As its plaintive
notes fell upon the ears of those present, every
voice was hushed, every hat was raised, and
every head was bowed. Every one seemed
deeply impressed with the solemnity of the
BXCRCISE3 AT THE TOMB.
The Chaplain, Uev. Asher Moore, then offer
ed a fervent prayer, in which the present con
dition of the country was remembered, and the
hope uttered, that God would rebuke the spirit
of disunion and sectionalism now rife in the
land ; that all might realiie the obligations
they were under to him whose bones wero now
before them ', that our country might bo united
and prosperous in the future; and that the
love of freedom might extend throughout tho
Isaac W. Stiort, Judge Advocate, then pro
ceeded to deliver an address Appropriate to the
To speak of the life and services of Washing
ton, would be to speak of that which is known
to all the world. Where has not tho name of.
Washington been heard 1 We shonld recall
his merits, aud awaken anew in our hearts nn
appreciation of his greatness, and a desiro to
imitate his glorious example. Washington
came upon the stage of life in tho midst of the
shock and gloom of intolerable oppression. He
doubtless at times hang " his harp npon the
willows," and wept many tears, btft they were
tears for the deliverance of his country from a
foreign yoke of oppression. That great and
good man thought of the grand 'destiny, as it
seemed to him, that was in store for his coun
try. All his thoughts seemed to be for its wel
fare; and he became-tho heart and soul of his
country the glorious and immortal father oi a
now gigantic nation. To yield fruitage like
this, implies capacities of tho highest order;
-and Washington was a superior man in every
respect In stature he was full six feet, finely
proportioned, with a strength of arm and powers
of endurance possessed by few indeed. These
ho bad developed in his duties as a surveyor,
aud when he was negotiating with the French
aud Indians, which required his frequent jour
neys over the Alleghany mountains. And yet
he was considered as the best type of the
American gentlemen upon the continent.
Within this imposing frame, remarked the
speaker, there dwelt a miud which was at once
active, discriminating! and just. He was slow
to decido and firm to execute. He was swerved
by no prejudices ; he exercised no partiality ;
he used no idle formulary. He bowed to none
but to those whoso experience had stamped
them as practicable. He looked at sober real
ities ; ho followed the dictates of common
To a mind of this character, prudence was
of course a prominent characteristic. In every
schemo of civil administration, no matter how
pressing the exigency, he ever showed the
most calm and unwavering confidence in his
own strength of purpose. Signal exemplifica
tions crowded upon all our memories. At every
crisis, in every device, in every exigency, in
every dilemma, the old Congress and the whole
country looked to Washington ; and he rarely
failed to prove the soundness of his own un
clouded judgment. His will, once made up,
was firm. His patience, his cheerfulness, his
sensibility, his liberality, his purity of motive,
nnd his disinterestedness, all haruiouiously
blended. Iu all the completeness of his nature,
ho was the most perfect man that ever lived.
Some might excel us warriors, as Ca:sar, Wei
lington, Napoleon, or Hannibal ; others might
excel in science, or iu oratory, as Henry, Mad
ison, or Monroe ; but for high military attain
ments, and the just cousouanco of all the great
elements of worth, Washington combined tho
good qualities of all the great men that ever
lived ; uniting more or less the greatness of the
genius of all the greatest.
Such was the illustrious man by whose tomb
they now reverently stood the philanthropist,
the sage, tho civilian here ho sleeps that sleep
s from which, iu this world, there is no awaking,
and which, if but now piously embalmed in the
heart of every American, would render that
In continuation, the eloquent speaker in
voked the dazzling repose ot the great patriot
to shine upon the descendants of his labors;
and as generation after generation should come
to this sacred spot, might it inspire them with
lovo for his greatness, as united possessors of
the goodly heritage he had bequeathed,
Ho then referred to the part Virginia had
taken iu the revolutionary struggle, and that
the Convention in which Henry, Madison,
Monroe, nud a host of other great men of Vir
ginia, had assembled, was the first that had met
iu this country to throw off the British yoke.
Then Virginia had moved like a pillar of fire
belbro tho country.
He then passed in review some of the most
"prominent deeds of Virginia's sons duriug tho
revolutionary struggle, and urged those pruseut
to recall and venerate the glorious deeds of
them all. Let ours bo one hope, ono life, one
destiny. He concluded by reading the following
poem from the pen of Mrs. Sigouruey, of Con
necticut, which he had received since his de
parturo from home:
THE PUTNAM PHALANX AT WASHING
Here, on Mount Vernon's breast,
Dcslde Its sacred grave,
Bow low tho uncovered head, where sJeeas
The bravest of the brave.
Aye, bare the the martial brow,
At his Immortal name,
for whom accordant earth entwines
Her proooest wreath of fame.
From Northern skies ye came,
To btess Virginia's son,
Our Infant nation's guiding star,
The peerless Washington.
While on yoar banner bright,
Ye boast the lion heart
Of him, who, with that chteftara bore,
In Freedom's tolls a part.
Seek, ere ye homeward wenB,
Some relic from the shrine,
Leaflet or gem of patriot love,
And brotherhood divine.
Wear hj your fervent souls,
To mark the hallowed scene,
This jewel from our father'stdmb,
This fadeless evergreen.
Daniel P. Tyler, Esq., of Connecticut, then
proceeded to pass a tribute of respect to tho
memory of Washington, Let our words, said
he, be short and well chosen. The world has
had but one Washington. All of every nation
bring to this hallowed spot feelings of the
deepest reverence. We bring more than rev
erence. We bow as -children at our lather's

Washington, desired that a bouquet of flowers
which she had brought should be placed on his
Mr. Tyler gratefully accepted the position.
He remarked that flowers in times of old wero
loved better than gold. Their stems might
wither, their fragrance might bo lost in tho
surrounding atmosphere, and their leaves
might become scattered fitting memorial of
all things earthly.

INSPECTING THE OLD MANSION, ETC.
An hour having been thus passed, the lino
proceeded in single file round by the old vault,
and theuceto the front of the mansion, where
they halted nnd stacked arms.
Another hour was then spent in visiting the
various points of interest in and around tho
old mansion ; all the caues and other memo
rials of interest that could bo obtained were
eagerly .gathered by tho members of the visit
ing corps. Everything about the place was
scanned by them with the most intense inter
est. It was a beautiful scene tp gaze upon
thosu old veterans, many of them with their
locks whitened with age, as they leaned over
that vault whern rested the remains of ono who,
himself once clad in the same uniform, led a
baud of patriots on to victory, despite the heat
of summer and the cold of winter.
The large parlor on the east side of the
house, with its grand old architecture and its
high roof, was much admired for its striking
grandeur. The key of the 'Bastile was also
much noticed, and the box for Mount Vernon
contributions was well attended to by the visit
At two o'clock, the drums were again beat,
and all again took their position in line.
Captain Lemuel Towers, of tho Light In
fantry, then advanced, and, in a few appropriate
remarks, presented to the Putnam Phalanx a
pedestal, manufactured in France expressly for
General Washington, to place the bust of La
fayette upon. This relic had been given to Cap
tain Towers by Mr. Charles S. Price, during the
present visit, and he knew of no more appro
priate present he could offer the Phalanx than
this ; the bust of Lafayetto had long stood
The pedestal was received, on the part of the
Phalanx, by the jndge advocate, Isaac W. Stu
art, who returned the thanks of the battalion for
the gift, and promised that it should ever be
highly prized by them. In this connection, he
observed that it was a son of Connecticut Silas
Dean who, while in France, first suggested to
Lafayette the idea of tiking part in our Revo
lution. Quartermaster Edward Towers then presented
to the Phalanx a piece of potrified wood, which
had been taken from the old tomb of Washing
ton. THE RETURN.
The procession then moved back to tho boat,
winding onco more around the spot that was so
sacred to all.
On the way back, the time was pleasantly
passed in viewing the fort, Alexandria, and tho
other places on the route, as well as by general
nicrry-makiug, songs, and the relation of inter
esting anecdotes and reminiscences. Here, too,
wo had an opportunity of observing that strong
Union feeling which exists among all the mem
bers of this tar-famed Phalanx.
The boat reached its wharf about four o'clock,
and the military marched to the National Ho
tel, by way of beventh street. They wero met
by a very large crowd when they arrived at tho
avenue, and the greatest interest was taken in
Shortly after nine o'clock last night, tho ofli
cers of the Infantry waited upon the members
of the Phalanx, and escorted them to the As
sembly itooms, where the ball was already in
progress when they arrived. Tho room wus
decorated in beautiful style. Iu tho centre of
the floor was a figure of the United States coat
of arms ; above which, neatly interwoven, wero
the words " Washington Light Infantry, A, B,
C j " nud below, tho words " Putnam Pha
lanx." A large and beautiful silk flag hung
from each end of tho musiciaus' stand, and
the flags of different nations were hung around
A very large number was in attendance, and
everything weut off in fine style, the committee
exerting themselves to the greatest extent, and
succeeding to a charm. We noticed in the as
sembly Captain Schaeffer, and a largo delega
tion of the National Hides ; Captain King, of
tho National Guard ; Major Warner, of the
Baltimore City Guard ; and delegations from
the President's Mounted Guard, Henderson
Guard, and Washington Rides, of this city,
All present seemed to be enjoying themselves
to the fullest extent ; the old and the young
commingled together in perfect and complete
harmony a rather unusual thing in these fast
times. Here might be seen old members of
the Phalanx, fifty and Bixty years of age, going
through the mazy dance with little misses of
ten or twelve. New England dames couversed
with Southern matrons, and Virginians greeted
New Englanders in the moBt cordial manner.
When wo left, shortly after midnight, the
interest had not abated one tittle, and all were
in the best possible spirits.
VISIT TO TUE WUITE HOUSE.
This morning, about ten o'clock, the Wash
ington Light Infantry battalion, seventy men
strong, Major J. Y. Davis commanding, Cap
tains Towers, Dubant, and Stevens, accom
panied by the Marina Band, paraded, and es
corted the Phalanx to the President's mansion.
Tho military first drew up in Hue on the avenue,
fronting tho Executive mansion. The Presi
dent shortly afterwards made his appearance
on tho avonuc, accompanied by Secretary
Toucey and Marshal Selden. The different
companies then passed in review before the
President, both tho Marino Band and the drum
band of the Phalanx playing a marching salute.
Some one iu the crowd proposed three cheers
for tho Union and the Connecticut Phalanx, at
they passed, which were heartily responded to
by the crowd present.
The President then retired, and took a posi
tion in the cast room, where a considerable
number of visiters, including Jndge Black and
a large number of members of both Houses of
Congress, had preceded him.
The officers of the Light Infantry and the
visiters then entered the east room, where they
were drawn up in line facing the President
Horace Goodwin, commander of tho Putnam
Phalanx, then advanced and introduced to the
President Judge Advocate Stuart, who pro
ceeded to address the Presidcpt They had
come from old Connecticut to tbs tomb of the
immortal Washington, They hid been at that
shriuj to pay homage to his greatness, and to
strengthen within themselves that patriotism
that burned within his bosom, It was a source
of great satisfaction to them to be introduced to
the Chief Magistrate of their great and glorious
country. Their company had been organized
to commemorate those glorious deeds of the
past, which had laid the foundation of our pres
ent national greatness. They had longed to
visit the city of Washington, the central depos
itory of the Constitution, that greatest and no
blest of works. He hoped that it might con
tinue to stretch its mgis all over our glorious
land, from tho Atlantic ocean to our farthest
Western coast, and from Canada to the Gulf
of Mexico. Here the brain of the nation does
its pedal work. May it continue here to per
form its gigantic labors. Upon this city the
eye of the whole civilized world rests.
Naturally, when within such a city, our love
of country is drawn out Wo cannot but lift
our oyes and gaze upon the works of those im
mortal men who founded this glorious country.
The recollection of their courage, their enthu
siasm, their patriotic thought, their almost su
perhuman wisdom, come throbbing through our
souls, enchain our hearts, and, we hope, forever
will. May they ever prevail. Thcn.every cloud
of political discontent would fade away. That
through tho panacea of such a retrospect this
might be done, is the earnest hope of the Put
nam Phalanx. It is their hopo that time, which
is washing away all empires, shall pass harm
lessly by us. Ho closed by again thanking the
President for tho privilege he had afforded
Tho remarks of the judge advocate wero well
received, and he was several times loudly applauded.
Air. uuchanan responded very briefly, lie
welcomed, with all his heart, the Putnam-Phalanx
to the White House. There were none
more worthy or more patriotic than the mem
bers of that battalion. He loved to see so large
and respectable a body of men clothed in the
old continental uniform. It recalled to his
mind the glorious deeds of other days. The
name, too, was suggestive Putnam, the hardy
farmer General of the Revolution, who hns set
an example of patr olism nnd courage which
has for seventy years exerted so powerful an
How few of the men of the Revolution, he
remarked, ever enjoyed a full military suit I
They endured every hardship, at times were
almost without any raiment, and their track
was frequently marked by the blood from their
feet. Would that the spirit which animated
those men in that day would now animate all
men at this. He did not intend to make them a
speech, but would be happy to shake tho hand
ot every member ot the corps.
The visiters then filed past the President,
and were each formally introduced to him.
The military then marched back to the Na
tional Hotel, where they dined.
Some of tho Phalanx visited the Capitol,
hastily passing through the more important de
partments. They leave in the 3.20 train, and
will be accompanied to the depot by tho Wash
ington ugnt iniantry and JNational lliues.
The members of the Putnam Phalanx who
remained at home have held a meeting, and
will all parado to receive them on their return.
Republican Meetinh. The National Re
publican Association met at tho " Wigwam,"
in largo numbers, last night, Vice President
Coombs in tho chair.
After electing a number of new members
nnd transacting other business, tho Hou. Mr.
Hutchins addressed the meeting,
He rcmnrked that he came there with no
speech ; he came rather to see how a Republi
can Association looked in Washington, and he
was pleased with their meeting. He went on
to say, that he was not a lawyer of the kind
who would discuss questions of law after the
verdict had been given. The peoplo had made
a verdict. Lincoln is elected, and somo of the
parties to tho suit wish to leave the court
house. No Republican member, he knew, would in
terfere with slavery where it existed. There is
nothing in the Chicago Platform in relation to
interfering with tho. institutions of the South.
II South Carolina and other States should
secede at all, the quicker it was found whether
or not the majority should rule tho better.
The prosecuting nttorney had presented a bill
called tho President's message, in which docu
ment he apologises for the North, and charges
that pictorial handbills, of not a very patriotic
character, wero circulated at tho South in 1835 ;
but ho does not say who circulated them.
When moral and political power is put along
side of free labor, free labor will be respected.
He closed with an eloquent appeal in behalf of
the Union, which was received with much ap
plause, After two patriotic songs, by a member of tho
association, thrco cheers wero given for Mr.
Uutcbius, and three more for the Union.
The meeting then adjourned.
Criminal Court, After we went to press
yesterday, the court sentenced Uhle to one
year's imprisonment in the penitentiary.
Joseph llobbins, alias Dolly Dobbins, was
found guilty, and sentenced to eighteen months
imprisonment in the penitentiary.
The court then took up tho case of Charles
G, Newman, charged with larceny, and he was
found guilty, but not sentenced, there being
two other cases against him.
This morning, the court took up tho caso of
P. D, Scott, far an assault on Bertrund Uuys,
which was given to the jury.
The court then proceeded with the trial of
Charles G. Newman, charged with the larceny
of somo twenty dollars, and a lot of rings, breast
National Rifles were out on parade early
this morning, passing down to the depot in
their route. Capt Schaeffer always knows what,
when, and where to do a thing, and of course
they made a fine appearance.
Kobbery and INCENDIARISM. This morn
ing, about two o'clock, the store of Mr. Walsh,
at the corner of Twelfth and 0 streets, was
broken open, and nearly all the light goods
stolen ; the building, a small frame, was then
sot on firo ; fortunutely, it was discovered in
time to prevent total destruction,
Mr. Walsh was insured for $100, which will
probably cover his loss.

fought vigorously for his freedom, and at the
office plead to be bo permitted to go, promising
to leave the city in the morning and go to his

in the city, and that lie had only arrived here
three weeks since. He was fined $2.94, and
required to givo security of $100 for his ap

Attempt at Incendiarism. About one
o'clock this morning fire was discovered Issuing
from the Bethel Church, on Connecticut avenue,

As it was, the damage was very slight.
