y The following noble tribute to America's
St 8tnan and Ut .'the eSorts now being
made to secure the Mount Vernon estate, is cop
ied from the London Illustrated yews of Feb. 26.
Tfc Tmm T IVa.hinf-twss.
We rrcwnt our readers this week, as apropos
to the 23i of February, an accurate riew of the
Tomb of Washington. No spot in America is
raited with greater interest or with feelings of
more profound reverence than Mount Vernon ;
and no day is held more mcred in the calendar of
the Republic than the day which gave birth to
the Father of His CouDry." This day, always
commemorated througl. the United States by
balls, banquets, and Yarioi other festive demon
strations, and by American citizens all over the
world, -was duly honored on Tuesday last by the
American, Association of. London, who dined to
gether in a spirit of patriotic brotherhood at
WfllfcV Rooms. u :; - .
It is hardly necessary to state that George
Washington was bom in the State of Virginia,
on the 22nd of February, 1732 ; that he was the
Commander-in-Chief of the American forces dur
ing the Revolutionary War ; that he was the first
President of the United States (twice elected ;)
that he retired to Mount Vernon in 1796, and
there died, on the 14th day of December, 1799,
at the age of sixty-seven. . With these facts in the
great and good man's history everybody is famil
iar ; while the hallowed ppot consecrated by his
ashes is equally familiar to the eyes' of thousands
of travellers from all parts of the civilized world.
But only the " privileged Tew" can visit those
far off " Meccas" where the universal admiration
of man loves to pay its pilgrim homage, and so
the imagination of the million must be satisfied
with pictures. The faithful artist brings the
mountain to Mahomet. , Our counterfeit pre
sentment" of the Mount Vernon Tomb is a per
fect facsimile of the scene.'
To those unacquainted with the locality of
Mount Vernon it may be necessary to state that
it is situated on the banks of the Potomac, about
sixteen mita from Washington. Steam-boats
plying between the capital of the nation and
Aquia Creek, on the great line of southern travel,
constantly pass it, but never without a solemn
tolling of the bell, when every passenger uncovers
his head, and gazes in silent, thoughtful, often
tearful reverence, at the-venerable mansion and
the modest tomb, wherein rest the remains of him
who died "childless that his country niight call
him Father. , -
How deep the bnrt who sink to rest. ,
-" By all their country's wishes blessed 1
When Spring, with dewy fingers cold.
Return t dTk their hallowed mould,
8ba thtm snail drat a tweeter oi j
Than Fancy's feet hare ever trod.
1 -'. -
By fitiry hands their knell U rani.
- By turn unseen their dirge is song;
, There Hnr comes, s pilgrim trey.
To MeM th turf that wraps their clay;
And Freedom shall awhile reair
To dwell a weeping hermit there !
The Washington marwion, although in rather
a dilapidated condition, is bean ti fully located on
elevated 'ground; -and the tjuib is at a little dis
tance from it', on th southern 6lope of the hill.
It eoneixta of an excavation, walled and arched
with bricks,and surrounded by a plain iron rail
ing. Over the door are engraved those Messed
words of immortal hope : " I ara the Resurrec-
tion and the Life : he that beueveth in me, though
he were dead; yet shall he live." Over the iron
eate there i a stone, with the followiug inperip-
tion :. Within this incloeure rest the remains
of General George Washington." There are two
marble sarcophagi. The larger one contains the
ashes, and bears the name, in large letters, of
Washington. It m formed front a solid block
of marble, eiht feet in length by two in height.
Upon the lid there is a shield, beautifully chis
eled, having thirteen longitudinal striped resting
on the '.American r and surmounted by an
eagle, without spread wings, grasping a sheaf of
arrows ana an olive-branch, lhe smaller sarco
phagus contains the remains of Martha, the wife
of Washington. Until quite recently the Mount
Vernon estate, consisting of some twelve hundred
acres, has been the property of Mr. John A.
Washington ; but for many years there has been
sacred a upot cAl "i the'Lnited States that so
sion of any individuar'sJiJl private posses
ions of fortune, or to the degrading ol4"nvUa"
of necessity. Mr. Washington, the inheritor of
the sacred estate, has been rehJctant to;partwith
any portion of it; but the increasing wants of a
large- family, whom he is liberally educating,
have compelled him to dispose of about two hun
dred acres, including the mansion and the tomb.
The State of Virginia during the pist year granted
a charter to the - Mount Vernon Association
enabling it to hold the property in perpetual
trust ; and through the personal efforts of Miss
Cunningham, of Charleston ; "Madame Le Vert,
of Mobile ; Miss Anna Cora Ritchie, of Richmond;
and last, though by no means least, the Hon.
Edward Everett, of Boston, the greater part of
the required sum has been raised, and the balance
will soon be forthcoming. Mr. Everett, by giv
ing the entire proceeds of his eloquent Lecture
on Washington, which he has delivered and re
delivered in all the principal towns and cities of
i ne union, iuu aireaay nanuea over to xne
treasury of the Mount Vernon Association about
80,000 dollars, including a cheque for 10.000
dollars, given him by the proprietor of the New
York Ledger for a weekly contribution for one
year, to be called the " Mount Vernon Papers,"
which are now regularly appearing iri the columns
of that nxarvellously-S'leoc-saful newspaper, which
has obtained a weekly circulation of half a mil
lion copies. . - - .
It is not our intention to indulge in eulogistic
strains to .' the immortal memory of Washing
ton.. . We simply point a reverent finger to his
humble tomb at Mount Vernon ; while the world
proudly point .to his country as his monu
ment., lie was a soldier, a j statesman, and a
chief magistrate, of whom his 'great political
antagonist, Jefferson, said, " He was a man in
capable of fear, of integrity the most pure, and
of justice the most inflexible."
It is a pleasant fact to mention in connection
with this subject that the venerable Washington
Irving, one of the finest writers of the English lan
guage in either hemisphere, and who, when an
infant, was placed ia the arms of General Wash
ington by his nurse for a blessing, has been for
many years engaged upon the life of the Pater
Patriae, and has now nearly completed his fifth
and last volume. Irving s Washington" will
be a glorious, monument, both to the subject and
to the author of it a thousand times better as
inspiration, and a tributary memorial to gre,
news, than the colossal marble shaft that stillhalts
half completed in the capital of the nation to re
buke the sluggish patriotism of an ungrateful

From the San rraneiseo Daily Herald, April 25-1
. Tfce AVstr Cla1 lm Erp
The affairs of Europe at this juncture possess unu
sual interest for the American people. Tbis is so ap
parent that we need not undertake to demonstrate the
proposition. All eyes are turned with solicitude to
wards France ss being the power expected to make
the first great move, whether that move be for peace
or war. Argument has been exhausted, and even
every sort of guess-work instituted, first to prove that
there must undoubtedly be war. and then to show
that it will all end in vapor. But the well informed
and able Paris correspondent of our French cotem
porary. the Echo du Paeifique. supplied us on Sat
urday last with a piece of intelligence which leads to
the irresistible conclusion that a crisis of some kind is
near at hand, or was on the oth of March last, which
mast soon settle ths question one way or the other.
It is no secret to the civiliied world that Piedmont
and Lombard have been induced to assume their
present undisguised hostility to Austrian rule in Italy
through the instigations of Louis Napoleon and on his
assured premise of assistance. Owing to this exciting
cause the wflr feeling is predominant in those States
and they; have actually progressed to the very verge
of declared warfare.. Victor Eraanuel had been led
to believe that France and the Emperor were identical-
Both the civil and military governments of
that country are administered by him, and without
bis sanction France can do nothing. His word is law,
and the law is but the reflection of his will. The
pledging of that word was amply sufficient to induce
a blind confidence in the fullfilment of his promise.
Acting upon that pledged faith, that voluntary prom
ise, both Piedmont and Lombardy have been led into
expressions of the liveliest hatred and detestation of
Austria. Victor Emanuel has even gone so far as to
be presented with an address from his people, which
breathes war in every sentence, and received that ad
dress with every manifestation of approval. But the
Paris correspondent of the Echo du Pacifique gives
the sequel to this extraordinary condition of Pied
mont. He says : Ou the 24th of February neither
the Belgian nor the German journtls were received in
Paris. It was soon discovered that they had been
stopped on the frontier because they contained a let
ter addressed by the King, Victor Emanuel, to the
Emperor. The police again, played . their eternal
comedy of useless precaution, for on the following
morning the letter was circulated through a portion
of the Parisian world. I have been able to obtain a
copy, which I send you. This is the copy : Sire
If from political considerations of an interior char
acter, of which it does not behoove uie to constitute
myself a judge, your Majesty's government should
abandon the cause of Italy, the defection of France
will be a thousand times more direful for Piedmont
than the loss cf the battle of Novara. In view of such
an event, which I wculd wish to deem impossible,
there would be nothing left me bat to follow the ex
ample of my father, the King, Charles Albert, and
lay aside a crown I could no longer wear with honor
to myself nor security to my people. Forced to ab
dicate the throne of my fathers, it would be but due
to myself, the glory of my race, and the interests of
my country, to make known to the world the causes
which have placed me in thOecessity of makings so
grievous a s icrifice. "
Here, then, we have a letter written by Victor
Emanuel himself to the Emperor of France, clearly
establishing the truth of what hits been above alleged.
But most unfortunately for Piedmont and Lombardy,
they have lately discovered the troth of Solomon's
proverb, " Put not faith in princes." They have
found to their great cost that ' there is a power
behind the throne," even iu France. The money
market, that great barometer of the political atmos
phere, has unmistakably shown that Louis Napoleon
alone the people, not the army of France can
make that promise good, or annihilate it altogeher.
That barometer hasexhibited the .ense of the French
people on several occasions. Louis Napoleon says
War, and the fuuds sink; Louis Napoleon says Peace,
and the funds rise. There is no mistaking tbis indi
cation, and even the Emperor himself cannot lead his
eager soldiery into the field without money, and that
money France quietly but firmly refuses to give. It
is a rubicon that cannot be overtepped; a barrier
that cannot be thrown down. Piedmont and Lom
bardy will have learned on what a foundation of
imperial sand they have built their hopes. The
enthusiasm of their respective peoples will have
received a deatb-blow; the despondency of Italian
patriots will be deeper than ever, while the triumph
of Austria will be complete and her chains riveted
more strongly than before. It now remains to be
seen what action the French Emperor will have taken
in the premises, for in all likelihood the event has
been finally determined on ere this time. Will he
persist in his warlike aims despite the wishes of the
French people, trusting to their patriotism after the
flame shall have been kin lied, and redeem his pro
mises to Piedmont and Lombardy; or will he resent
the publication of Victor Em.mueTs letter, and with
draw from the controversy? Will he be faithless to his
solemn promises, in which so deep reliance has been
placed, or will he keep his imperial word nJ,Pl5)p'
the affair to a hostile term'nat'on-.XWlon"of this
great inmt.fyiSJrrtail with anxiety.

r"ri a-ioF8 the Isthmus of Panama, for the shipment of
Oil from the Pacific to the I nited States, u.id Ir seuamg out
fits aild siiinlies from the Viiitcd .Suites to Panama.
The II ail road has been in regular and successful operation for
more than two years, and ia rapacity for tl.e transportation of
evcrv description of mercliaiiiliae. iuoiudine Oil. provisions, &c.
has been fully tested. The attention of teveral Captains of
whuleships has recently been turned to the suij(?ci oi snipping
Uieir oil from I'aiixnia to New York during the present season,
and the Pany.niit llail-Koad Company has made arrangements
to afford every facility which may Ihj reUired for the accom
plishment of this important object. A Iir, 450 feet long, has
lieen built in the bay of Panama, to the end of which I'reit-'ht
Cars are run to receive cargoes from lighters or vessels lying
alongside, and deliver the s:ime alongside of vessels at Aspin
wall. Vessels of from 200 to .100 tons can lie at the Pier with
snfetv. irroumliii!! in the mud at low water.
Tiie vessels to nnd from Aspinwall are fast-sailing brigs, be
longing to the Ruil-IioHd Company, and the Company is pre
pared to receive oil at Panama and deliver it in New-York,
under throush Bill of Lnclins at the rate of seven
cents per jriillon, if received at the Pier, and eijrht cents jx'r g:il
lou if received in ihe liai-lr from ship's tackles, charging for
the ojipueity of thft caiks without allowing for wantage. For
whalebone, one and one-half cenL-i ier xund. This charge
covers every exiwnse from Panama to New York, in case
the oil is sent throucli the Superintendent or C'ommerrial Agent
of the Panama Huil-Koad Company, insurance excepted. The
freights may b made payable on the Isthmus or in New xork
at the option of tlie shipper.
The vessels of the Company sail regularly semi-monthly, and
Uie average passages to and from Aspinwall are at -out twenty to
twenty-five days. The linr; occuiied in crossing the Ishmus is
four hours. Oil, during its transit across the Isthmus, will be
eovered with canvas, or conveyed in covered cars, and owners
? assured ihat every care will be taken to prevent leakage.
