THE WEATHER ARD CROPS.
Tho Barnwell Journal says that it is difficult
to get at the condition of the crops; from ail
it can learn there will b9 au excellent c >rn
crop made throughout the district if there be
good soas?os from now ont. The early cotton
is looking splendidly, while where people have
got tho Krraea ont of the late oottoa it ie doing
tolerably well. There ia lees complaint gene?
rally this year ol the colored people not work?
ing well than ever before, and if good crops
are not made it will not be for look of work on-1
tho part of both wbito and back.
The Reporter says: "Having had occasion
inst week to take- a short trip Into the coun?
try, wo are glad to be able to say that the ap- t
pcarance of the crops is much better than w o i
had expected to see. From the continuous r
rains of three weeks, and the temporary neg- t
tectlng of the growing crops occasioned by c
the harvest season, we had expected to see c
crops badly in the grass. Snch ls not the case, c
Here and there we saw a field that was suffer- \
lng Xor work, but, as a general thing, thc corn i
and cotton had been BO well worked ont before f
the rains began that the mastery over the t
grass was easily maintained. The prosnect of I
an abundant crop, both of corn and cotton, was t
scarcely ever better at this time of the year, u
The laborers are, as a general rule, wonting c
better than In past years, and, as the Radical a
party does not oegin to steVm up for the cam- r
paign until the latter part ol July, it is hoped p
that the crops will be secured before their at- a
tention is directed too much from agriculture r
to politics. c
-While the general condition of the crops is t
good, there Is this to be observed as to the as- t
peet of tho eountry, that lt presents a patchy c
appearance, as if the farms were all worked in t
sma'.l patches. This is due, doubtless, to the t
iifflculty of gelling the hands to work in the t

further fact that the planter does not care to r

left out of cultivation. a

The Annual Examination-The Prizes,

[FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, June 30.
Aller three days of laborious examination,
each one including speeches irom visitors
present and distribution of prizes to the meri?
torious, the annual session of the Howard
(colored) School, of Columbia, closed this
The first day of the examination was devo?
ted to thc primary department; and in this ex?
amination demonstrated, most of ali, the won?
derful patience and tireless teaching of the
instructors. This department is under the
management of Misses Simons, Avery, Taylor
The second day was given to the interme?
diate department, over which preside Misses
Griffin, Merrill, Alice Loomis and Greene. The
proceedings here, as the day before, consisted
of devotional exercises, recitations, readings
and singing. The results were in a high de?
The third was the most important day, giv?
ing the rcBultB of study in the highest or
grammar department, The teachers of this
department are Misses Hall and Carrie Loom?
is. Here we had a class in reading, in which
as in every branch of study, lo the very high?
est-the girls were clearly ahead of the boys.
In intellectual arithmetic the exercises were
highly creditable. In grammar, the parsing
was not remarkable, unless we take into con?
sideration all the conditions which render
teaching these higher departments here; but
in that view the highest credit is due the teach?
ers who have accomplished so much. The
analysis was confined to simple sentences and
their elements. lu history and geography,
again? there was better work. The severe
work of fractions and parts of speech was
varied with declamation and vocal exercises.
The prizes were distributed for scholarship,
punctuality, deportment, attendance, and
other virtues of the school-room. The awards
consisted of books and pictures, which had
been purchased out ora fund given by a Mr.
Clark, a Northern friend of Southern educa?
tion, who has been supporting a teacher in the
school for several years. About twenty prizes
Speeches were next in order, the State Su?
perintendent of Education conducting the
oratory. State Auditor Tumlinsun was first
called upon, and-responded. His speech was
brief, temperate, and confined to the subject of
Judge Wright (colored) followed In his char?
acteristic vein, holding that the exercises of
the day were a fall answer to all questions
about the educability ol' the colored raca^ And
the Judge was right-as far as he went. A
colored visitor, who was addressed os "Mr.
Green," was called upon, but declined, with a
complimentary reference to those who were to
follow, and a hint at the lateness of the hour.
Another person, whose name was lost in the
rustle of attention it created, declined upon
sonic grounds which did not appear. A re?
sponse from another person (colored) con?
sisted in a hearty compliment to the Howard
School, taking the ground that it ls the best
school of its kind In thc State, which ls proba?
bly true, if not the best in the United Slates.
Lieutenant Wallace spoke next, representing
himself as one Interested In education, claim?
ing to be a "Scalawag," (whatever that is,)
from Louisiana, This seemed to bc thc only
political allusion ot the day. While speaking,
this individual used the word "negro," where?
upon a voice came from the crowd which seem?
ed to be a substitution of "colored person" for
the word used by the speaker. There was a
pause and a moment's silence, after which the
speaker went on with his argument. The
next speaker was called upon as "Mr.
Jackson," who earnestly advised the pupils of
the school to "persevere and go on" in their
good work. This speaker, in paying a merit
ted compliment to the zeal and proficiency of
the scholars before him, dwelt upon the hopes
be reposed in his own little children, and
spoke of the pride with which he expects to
watch their progress when they get old
enongh to go to school. But he lorgot to add
(which he evidently had ia mind) that he
would send them to the Howard School, to bc
educated along with the colored children who
have done so well. His being a member ot
the Legislature, and owing his position to the
colored voters, render such au Inquiry proper,
and in order.
County School Commissioner Edwards, (col?
ored.) responded next to Mr. Jlllson's call for
a speech. He frankly told the negroes that
they must begin to pay for their schooling
themselves; that neither the State nor charity
would be likely to do everything for them, if
they continued to do nothing. The State 8u
Serintendent of Education-Mr. Jillson, of
tassa ch lisetta-concluded the addresses with
a few remarks, in which he detailed the diffi?
culties of establishing an effect ive system of
education. He took occasion* to say-and to
emphasize the proposition-that the prejudice
between the peoples in South Carolina was
less a prejudice against skins, and tue color of
skins, than against Ignorance and unculti?
These dally sessions have lasted usually from
8 o'clock A. M., until past noon. The last
day until after two o'clock.
The Howard School numbers about four hun?
dred and seventy-five pupils, of both sexes and
all colors, except exactly white.
The superintendent, Miss Haley, and her
corps of ten teachers, mentioned: by name
above, deserve the gratitude jot' our communi?
ty for their efforts, and the measure of success
that has crowned them, in this matter of edu?
cating the negroes.
It was state i during the speeches, that there
was a fair prospect ol their all returning at the
opening ot th?; next session-the Hst of Octo?

Dolllslon Between the Cork Trade As?
sociation and the Military.
A cable dispatch of Monday last, from Cork,
The strike of the tailors in this city, which
?riginated several days since, bas gained
greatly augmented strength, ana the propor?
tions of the movement are now of a most for
nidabie character. The strike has extended
apldly, and the ranks of the strikers embrace
he workmen ot all the trodes, who have
mit work and joined the disaffected. Many
ionisions have occurred between the disor
lerly workmen and the constabulary, who
lave laboriously endeavored to preserve the
x'ace and prevent attacks upon the shops and
ac tor les of the employers. In several places
he riots have assumed a very serious aspect,
barricades have been erected and manned, and
he authorities have been compelled to call
ipon the military for assistance. The
instructions have in every case been carried
it the point of the bayonet, and the defenders
outed and driven off. Details of policemen
ia: roi tho dangerous localities, and the police
,uthoritiC3 are doing all in their power to rc
iress the disorders. The utmost alarm and
onster nation prevail among all classes. Trade
ios been paralyzed, and the consequences of
he strike will be most disastrous in mercantile
Ircles. The Mayor of Cork bas been Implored
o take summary measures to suppress the rio
ous demonstrations, and compel the strikers
o resume work, but be has refused to take
ny action against the rioters. Further and
nore serious difficulties are apprehended,
lany ol the police were wounded, but so lar
a known only one of the soldiers was serlous
y hurt. The latter's skull was fractured by a
tone hurled by one of the rioters. The police
xe still actively at work, and many ol the lead
irs of the dlsoader are in custody.

MENT RT THE STATE PRESS. JQ
The Record ot thc Ring.
;[From the Walhalla Ooorler.]
"Truth ls powerful and will prevail." Wheth?
er the candidates of the Reform pirty be elect?
ed or defeated, the movement will not be un?
fruitful of good to the State. Already the or?
gan of the pa.' ty in power bas issued its bull de?
claring that Reform ls needed in many things
and Betting forth a platform of principles un
objectionable in honesty and patriotism. Will
the party adhere to these promises to repen
and amend their ways ? "With their mouth
they show much love, but their heart goeth
after their covetousness.". The record of the
past two years pronounces the condemna?
tion of the party, and the falsity of their
promises., lt we judge them by their
fruits, we must find them guilty of corrup?
tion, extravagance and dishonesty In hig
places. If we test them by their principles
enunciated in the platform set forth by the
organ of the party, we And scarcely a principle
not already violated. Dishonesty in office ls
declared a crime. Monopolies are denounced
General education ls tobe fostered. The ex
pendltures of the government must be.red
ced to the lowest possible figure. The Interest
on the debt created by the Democratic party
must be paid. The first principle Is all right,
and nothing better illustrates the Radical
idea of a proper punishment for the crime
than the re-election of Whitemore to Con
gress. The second is exemplified in the
granting exclusive privilege to a company
to dig and mine phosphates in this State
General education ls to be promoted by

the State government fully three-fold in two
years, the party now talk about retrenchment
And to clap the climax of. impudent bravado
they talk of thc State debt created by the Dem
ocracy. Every one knows that the debt of six
millions at the close of the war was the short?
comings of our existence of ninety years. That
at the time of Its creatton ute property of the
State was worth five hundred millions ot dol?
lars, and a percentage equal to that levied last
year would In two years settle the entire debt
i hat after three-fourths of the property of the
country had been lost by the late war, the pre
sent party In two years doubled the d e * t, tri bl ed
the expenses of the government of wealthier
days, and now has tba effrontery to call itself
the government of the poor man. It ls
truth thc government pf the poor man, for ita
I course leads to universal poverty, and its con
tinuancc. We say, let the Radical party stand
or fall by the record of Its own past.
Wno ?re the Retormera ?
[From the Carolina Spartan.]
It must be gratifying to every good citizen
Ot the State to witness the organization ol
political party whose platform indicates the
eternal sepultare of the prejudices and pas?
sions which have heretofore embittered our
political contests. Although we have no doubt
the Radical party will endeavor to find objec
don to the platform and the nomination In
order to stir up strife, and retain in power
those who have pledged their patronage to
the hired minions of partial, corrupt and ex
- qravagant administration, yet, even the Radi
cal "press gang," whilst attempting to ridicule
could not refrain from praising both. The ob
Jects ol' thc new party, as declared in the pre
amble to the platform, are to "organize the
good people ot the State" to reform the pres
ent administration of the State government,
"to establish just and equal laws," to lnaugu
gurate an economical administration, and to
elect honest men to office.
That a Reform in these matters is needed
will scarcely be denied. Some of the leadla.
Radicals of the State admitted os much a lew
days ago in Columbia. But they say the party
are competent to reform themselves. Well
tbey have had complete control of the govern
ment for several year?, and have been grow
ing constantly worse, until their corruptions
and extravagance have grown so fiagranfand
enormous, that it can no longer be concealed
trom honest men of all parties; and trembling
in anticipation ol the terrible accountability to
which they are about to be held, they cry out
"pecoaui," hoping by pretended penitence and
abundant promising to escape the righteous
indignation of a cheated ana outraged people
But the people are not going lo subm.lt their
interests in the hands of such men any more
Those who have had their eyes opened to Vie in?
competency and corruption of the Radical party
' in South Carolina, are they who constitute the
; Reform party, and who have built this platform
Many who stand upon it are true and honest
Republicans. Even the chosen leader of the
party has always been, and ls still, a champion
ol Republican principles. Those who constl
tuted the Democratic party have honestly ac
cepted the late amendments of the coaslltu
tlon as having settled the principal differences
between them and the true Republican party
therefore there ls no good reason why honest
men oi all parties should not unite upon this
platform in an earnest effort to reform the ad
ministration, jxnd restore the credit and honor
of tile State. ?
No Hore Winchester Rifle Speeches.
[From the Anderson Intelligencer.]
It is authoritatively announced that Cover
nor Scott "deems it inconsistent with the pro
per discharge of his responsible duties to take
an active part in the campaign," and "who
ever announces him to make a speech will
know, hereafter at least, that he is perpetra?
ting a fraud." Well, lt is a matter of regret
that this conclusion was not reached a little,
earlier, and that the Governor had not deemed
lt inconsistent for him to deliver such a reck?
less and partisan speech as that which fell
from his lips at Washington, when he advoca
ted the Winchester rifle as the best law
of the land. He was no less the Chief Mag?
istrate of South Carolina at the moment of
such diabolical utterances than he is to?
day, and bis "responsible duties" as the
Executive of a State should have con?
strained him then with equal force to keep
silence. But we are Induced to believe that
other motives prompt him to keep out of the
canvass. He is fully aware that thc corrup?
tions and extravagance Of his al ministration
will be thoroughly exposed, and he does not
dare to go before the people. He knows that
an arraignment of official conduct will bring to
light certain transactions in lohich lie xoas in?
volved, and that it will cause bim trouble to
escape the indis nation and condemnation ot
white and black. He would Jlnd it inconve?
nient, not 'Hnconsistent," to meet the charges
oj enormous taxation, bribery and corruptions
of every sort, which have marked his adminis?
tration up to the present time. Ile prefers to
be out of the way when grave charge* are
brought agalust him, and we are only consoled
by the fact that there will be no public threats
ot Winchester rifle law.
Vigorous Effort s Desired.
[From the Columbia Phoenix.]
Some mode ol operation to the present cor?
rupt and ruinous regime was demanded, and
now that thc Union Reform weapon has been
adopted, let it be wielded boldly, actively and
sagaciously. It ls a weapon of truth, and let
its keen edge strike to the very roots ol' our
evils. The platform adopted by the recent
convention has been sharply assailed. We
deny that it is liable to the objections made.
It is broad and liberal, but it is not true that it
makes auy sacrifice ot honor or principle.
* * * *****
Things are not to be righted by hold?
ing aloof and crying that they are wrong.
This plan has already been fully tried in
South Carolina, and in our present condition
we may see the result. * * * * We say it
in all earnestness, that the present state of
things cannot long last. South Car- lina be?
longs to the people that inhabit it. It does
not belong to the vampires and Ring-iaorins
that are now fastened upon it, and, sooner or
later, must ao. outraged community rise In its
majesty and put a slop to this reign of rascali?
ty, fraud and corruption. We have now on
foot a fair, honest movement to relieve the
State. Let it be pressed, and let us open to
our people an unlettered career of Industrial
prosperity. Let us set our politics right, and
then go about our business.
The Chester Reporter says that a colored
man named Oliver Moore, died suddenly, on
Monday last, on the plantation of Dr. John A.

" IN THE POET'S CORNEE. "
Thc Obsequies of Charles Dickens-His
Final Roting Place.
[From the London Times.]
The wish of the people of England has pre?
vailed, and Charles Dickens rests in the Abbey
Church of St Peter, at Westminster. Our
readers will learn with surprise and satisfac?
tion that the funeral of the great novelist was
celebrated at an early hour yesterdey morn?
ing, in Poet's Corner, with as mach privacy as
could have been secured for lt in any little vil?
lage church in Kent, or even in Wales or
Cornwall. A grave had been dug during the
night, and we believe we are right in assert?
ing that, besides the dean and canons, hardly
a member of the cathedral body on Monday
evening was aware of the Intended arrange?
ment. It appears that some days ago the dean
sent a communication to the family of Mr.
Dickens to the effect that if it was desired by
themselves or by the public that he-should
be burled in the Abbey, he would do all in his
power to facilitate the arrangements; and
also that on Monday, suggesting that
the Abbey was the fitting resting place for such a
man, he repeated the offer in terms more dis?
tinct Most fortunately, it was found, upon
opening Mr. Dickens's will, that although his
instructions were explicit in forbidding all
pomp and show, and all that "mockery of
woe' which undertakers are at such pains to
provide, he had named no place of burial; and,
therefore, his executors felt that it was open
to them to concur with the national wish, ii
they could only insure secrecy as to place and
time. This was arranged satisfactorily on
Monday, and at an early^our yesterday morn?
ing the body was conveyed, almost before any
one was stirring, in a hearse from Gadehlll to
one of the railway stations of the London.
Chatham and Dover line, whence it was for?
warded to London by a special train, which
reached the Charlng-cross station punctually at
9 o'clock. In a few minutes more the hearse,
which was plainness itself, was on its way
down Whitehall to the Abbey, followed by the
mourning coaches, and we believe that not a
single person of the many scores who must
have met the gloomy cavalcade as it slowly
paced along, was aware that that hearse was
conveying to its last resting-place all that was
mortal or Charles Dickens.
A few minutes before 3:30 tbe hearse and
mourning coaches-tbe latter three in number
-entered Dean's yard, and the body was car?
ried through the cloisters to the door of the
nave, where it was mel by the dean, the two
canons in residence, Canon Jennings and
Canon Nepean, and three ot'the minor canons.
Tlie choir were not present and indeed, for
the most part were unaware tbat a grave bad
been opened in the Abbey and that the sounds
of the burial service were about to be heard
there once more, more than half a year having
passed by since the last funeral-that of Mr.
Peabody. The service was most Impressively
read by the dean, all but the . Lessons, whick
were read by the senior canon. Tbere was no
anthem, no chanted psalms, no hymn, not
even an intoned response or "Amen;" but the
organ was played at Intervals during the
mournful ceremony. Tho earth was cast into
the grave by the clerk of the works; the ser?
vice ended, the mourners-fourteen In num?
ber, with perhaps as many more strangers
who accidentally chanced to be present-gath?
ered round the grave to take a last look at the
coffin which held the great novelist's remains,
and to place wreathsT>f immortelles and other
flowers upon the coffin-lld, and the service was
at an end.
The coffin was of plain, but solid oak, and lt
bore the piala and simple Inscription:
norn February 7.1812.
Died June 9,1670.
His grave, which is only between five and
six feet deep, is situated about a yard, or a
yard and a halt, from the southern wall of
Poet's Corner; thc snot was selected by the
dean from among the few vacant spaces in
that transept, and our:readers will hear with
Interest that all ol'Charles Diekens that is mor?
tal lies at the feet of Handel and at the head of
Sheridan, with Richard Cumberland resting on
bis right hand and Macaulay on his left. His
grave is near the foot of Addison's statue; and
Thackeray's bust looks calmly down upon the
grave of his old friend. Dr. Johnson and Gar?
rick He within a few yards of him; and the
busts of Shakespeare, Milton, and a host ol
other worthies, each pl them the glory of Eng?
lish literature in their day, are but a little
It will bc felt no doubt by all thoughtful per?
sons, that although the executors of Charles
Dickens may have disappointed the public by
keeping the time and place ot his funeral to
the very last so strict a secret they have done
the one thing which would have been alike ac?
ceptable to the departed, and which bas satis?
fied the wishes of the country at large.

law, (Miss Hogarth) Charles Dickens, Mr.
Wilkie Collins and Mr. John - Forster were

The grave, by direction of the dean, was left
open as long as the Abby was open yesterday;
and os the news spread about London, many
visitors went to Poet's Corner during the
atternoon to take a last sad look at the coffin
of Charles Dickens; but lt was understood that
tlie grave would be closed during the course
of last evening. We believe that lt is the In?
tention of th?Tdean to p,reach a funeral sermon
upon the career and .#n??acter ol the great
writer whose ashes havebeen laid in thc Abby,

Ur. Dicken'* Magazine-His Wishes as
Regards its Future Management.
The following statement os to the future
management of "AU the Year Round" bas been
Issued by Mr. Charles Dickens, Jr.:
It was my father's wish, expressed in writing
only a week before his death, that I, his eldest
son, and latterly his assistant editor, should
succeed bim in the management ol'the journal
so long associated willi his name. In ac?
cordance with this clearly-expressed desire,
and strong in the hope inspired by so
encouraging a mark of his confidence, I ad?
dress myself to the fulfilment ol' the task,
which he appointed me to discharge. It is in?
tended that the management ot "All thc Year
Hound," in the future, shall be based on pre?
cisely the same principles as those on which lt
has, up to Hits time, been conducted. Tbe
same authors who have contributed to its
columns in times past will contribute to them
still. The same spirit which has in the past
pervaded '.ts pages will, so far as conscientious
endeavor may render it possible, pervade
them still. The same earnest desire to advo?
cate what is right and true, and to oppose
what is false and unworthy, which was the
guiding principle of my father's career, and
which has always characterized his manage?
ment ol'"All the Year Round," will, I most
earnestly hope, continue to be apparent in its
every word. So much, then, being the same,
it may not be presumptuous in me to hope that
the same readers willi whom this journal, and
that, which preceded it, found favor for it so
many years, may still care to see the familiar
title page on their tables as ol'old. With this
brief explanation of the course I propose to
adopt, and omitting all reference whatever to
ray own personal feelings iu connection with
thc great sorrow which has rendered ihls
statement necessary, I leave tbe future Jour?
nal to speak for itself. "It is better that every
kind of work, honestly undertaken and dis?
charged, should speak for itself than be spoken
for." These were the words with which my
father inaugurated the new series of "All the
Year Round." I cannot surely do better than
repeat them in this place.
CHARLES DICKENS, JR.
Reminiscences of Diekens.
Donald S. Mitchell, editor of Hearth and
Home, gives the following interesting reminis?
cences of Charles Dickens:
The popular notion that Mr, Dickens died
trono irregularities of life, we believe unfoun ti?
ed. H* way a g?nerons liver, in the EngHsh
sense of tnat term. He loved a good dinner.
He ken a French cook. He took wine with
bis dinner habitually, and very likely a sip of
Cognac atter bia dinner-in the manner of nine
out of ten Englishmen whose stylo of living
wa9 on the eame scale with his. But, oo tho
other hand, be was most methodic in his
habits. He indulged in no stimulants to
quicken his working power, or before the hour
of dinner. 6 P. M.
He rose ordinarily at seven, or thereabouts;
devoted an hour to bis mail and correspon?
dence; breakfasted in the free and easy way
which belongs to most English country-houses;
lit a cigar in tba :losing breakfast boor, and,
that done, went to his stud; and bis work
denying, ordinarily, all interruptions until one
or two o'clock of the afternoon. In this period
of work-as he has told us-he never smoked,
and never employed an amanuensis. Every
word of all nie great array of vol ames bas been
written out in bis own hand. The morning's
work being over, he set ont upon his tramp
fifteen miles of walk SB a asnal thing with him,
and thirty miles of walk no uncommon thing.
He entertained the idei that mental fatigue
an i labor could be balanced by corresponding
physical exercise-an idea thal bas a measure
of tra. h in it, if the balance be adroitly kept.
But with Mr. Dickers the balance was not kept;
for on these long walks tba creatures of bis
brain were hie daily attendants, and whila fae
strode away over too Kentish meadows, he was
calculating the issues of bis stories ,aDd fabri?
cating scenes that were next day to take color
in bis words.
Dinner was a gala time witb him; hui uncer?
emonious and careless of dress as be might be
in the earlier hours of tba div. he, in his latter
years at least, kept by the old English ceremo?
nial dress for dinner. His butler and servant
wera also habited conventionally; and the same
notion of conventional requirement, it will be
remembered, he observed always in his load?
ings and appearance on public occasions. Bot
the law of etiquette, however faithfully and
constantly followed, did cot sit easily on him;
and there is no portrait of bim which to oar
mind is BO agreeable as that which represents
him in an old, loose, morning jacket, leaning
against a column of his porch upon Gadshill,
with his family grouped around bim. As din?
ner cime to its close, the little grand children
tottied in-his "wenerable'' friends, as he de?
lighted to call them-and with tbeir advent
OJ me always a rollicking time of c jeer.
Connell or the Ladle*' Ajiodation
Plan? for the Improvement of the
The meeting of the lady regents of the Mount
Vernon. Association, at Mount Vernon last
week, for the purpose of considering pions for
the improvement and preservation o? the
place, has been briefly mentioned. A corres
pondent of the New York Post, who was pres?
ent at the reception given by the ladles on the
occasion, on Wednesday last, says :
From the broad high porch of the house,
which runs across its front, we were ushered
Into the grand banqueting ball, into the pres?
ence of the twelve vlce-reg?nts of the Mount
Vernon Association. I doubt if a more goodly
array ot matrons ever graced that boll in the
palmiest days of Mount Vernon; li the Lees, or
the CuBtises. or the Fairfaxes, could show more
beauty, elegance or intellect. There was the
regent, Miss Ann Pamela Cunningham,' of
South Carolina, a graceful little woman, with
a face full of decision and energy, surrounded
by her vice-regents, Mrs. Halsted, of New Jer?
sey; Mrs. Swelt, of Maine; Mrs. Chase, of
Bfaode Island; Mrs. Walker, of North Carolina;
'Mrs. Barry, of Illinois; Mrs. Brooks, of New
.York; Mrs. Lewir^Wasbinglon, of West Vir?
ginia, (whose husband belongs to the family,
and who is herself a relative of Mrs. Washing?
ton;) Mrs. Comegys, .of Delaware; Mrs.
Bingham, of Pennsylvania; Mrs. Mitchell, of
wisconsin, an'd Mrs. Emory, of Washington,
who has recently been appointed lady manager
for the District ot Colombia, no provision hav?
ing beeji made in the constitution of the asso?
ciation'for a/vlce-regent except in tba States.
The Marquis' and Marchioness de Chambrun
were expected by the boat, and the lady, who
ls a lineal descendant of the Marquis de Lafay?
ette, was to be presented formally to the asso?
ciation; bat, to the regret of every one, they
failed to meet their engagement
OBJB0TS OP THE COUNCIL. ?
This present council is convened lor more
than ordinary business. During the war,
MoNnt Vernon was always neutral ground, al?
though frequently surrounded, first by one.
party, then by the other. The regent, whose
duty lt Is to call together the council, was at
her home in South Carolina; many of the vice
regents were also In the South, and little could
be or was done, further than to keep th? place
from actual desolation. Miss Cunningham
who was the original projector of the idea to
purchase the estate; and who probably has
done more toward the payment for lt than any
other woman-has come, to live there, and has
already done much towards repairing and
renovating lt; but the Income is small and un?
certain, coming principally from the receipts
of the boat, and from selling fruit, vegetables
and milk. But this is too untrustworthy a
manner of supporting the establishment and>
estate, and the regent has called the council to
meet at the place, that they may see, by per?
sonal inspection, the necessity of some great
effort. The vlce-regenta have taken hold of
the matter in a most energetic manner, and
are determined to mature some plan whereby
they can realize an endowment fund and be in
a greater measure independent.
They hope also to be able to rebuild the
colonnades between the house and the offices,
kitchen, ?fcc., in the original manner, to pro?
vide in some degree against Are, and to drain
the cellar, which is always partly full of water.
After attending to these necessary repairs,
they hope to be able to restore some of the
original furniture and ornaments, or to replace
them by suitable ones. The rooms have been
greatly Improved by a little paint and thorough
cleansing. Huge fenders have been placed
over the hearths and mantel pieces to prevent
their further mutilation by relic hunters. (An
old lady visitor was greatly struck by these,
and wondered "why they used such big fen?
ders in old times.") One of Lhe chambers, the
blue room, where it ls said General Lafayette
slept, has been furnished by the efforts of Mrs.
Halsted, of New Jersey, who has been un?
ceasing in her labors, and by her unremitting
energy has succeeded ia begging sufficient oil?
cloth to cover the floor of the large room.
Her example has Inspired other vice-regents,
who have pledged themselves to furnish each
a room, and lu this way the eighteen bedrooms
will soon have an Inhabited aspect.
PORTRAITS-CONDITION OF TUE GROUNDS, AC
They intend to make a great effort to pur?
chase the equestrian portrait of "Washington
before Yorktown," which hangs in the capitol.
This seems a suitable picture lor the Mount
Vernon mansion, as it is not only an excellent
likeness of General Washington, but also of his
military family, live officers, who accompanied
him on the memorable occasion when he or?
dered the entrenchments dug before York?
town, and reprimanded Colonel Tlernan, his
chief engineer, for not having more promptly
obeyed his order. The picttire was painted by
Rembrandt Peale, and now hangs In the capi?
tol, although it still belongs to the Peale fami?
ly, who are anxious to sell it.
There arc besides some family portraits of
great interest scattered throughout thc coun?
try, which should be collected and hung in
their ola places, and some very interesting
relics which would add much to the charm ol'
the place. The veritable basket in which Mrs.
Washington carried her keys in those good
old days, when every lady, no matter what hex
position, was her own housekeeper, and the
medicine chest from which she dispensed
health to her family and retainers, ore in the
possession ol'a Virginia family, who will con- <
sent to part with them for a consideration.
After examining the house and listening to
the different plans suggested for Its restoration
and adornment, we were invited into the old
library, now used as a dining-room, where we
found a liberal and elegant lunch, to which
we did ample justice before visiting the garden
and grounds. These proved what industry
and good management can accomplish; from*
the overgrown shrubs and trees all surplus
growth has been carefully trimmed, the lawns
are mown closely, and the green-house has
been rebuilt and restocked, with the expecta?
tion that the products may some day be a
valuable source of revenue.
