An Unpublished Letter from General Washington-Interest
in Political History.
The following letter from General
IV&tliicgtoii, (for which we M e indebted
to a friend,) hat never been published
It containa tome interesting item of
political history, bearing upon the
adoption of the present Constitution of
the United States. It wii written
shortly after the adjournment of the
Convention which framed that instru
ment, and before it was ratified by the
several States. It is noticeable from
the fast that General Washinigton be
lieved thut Patrick Henry would not
k hiendly tothe Conetitution, because
"it wee an effectual bar agaiust the
the emission of paper-money," Henry
being a paper money man. The Gen

"MOUNT VERNON, Oct. 10, 1787.
"Mr Dear Sib: I thank you for your
letter of the 30th nit. It came by the
last pout. I am better pleased that the
proceedings of tho Convention are han
ded from Congress by a nnutnmous
vote (feeble as it in) than if it had ap
peared under stronger murks of appro
bation without it. Thin spparont
nianiniity will have its effect. Not
every one has opportunitica to peep
kebind the curtain, and aa . the multL
tttJefterrjua '-Treat externals, the
appearance of unanimity in that tody,
on thit occasion, will be of great im
portance. "The politic.! tenets of Colonel
Ma ton and Colonel R. H. L. are
always in unison. It may be askid,
which of them gives the tone? With
out hesitation, I answer the latter, be
oanse the latter, I believe, will receive
it from no one. He has, lam informed,
rendered himself obnoxious in Phila
delphia by the pain he took to desig
nate his objections among to mo of the
leaders of the acceding members of the
Legislature of that State. Hit conduct
it not less reprobiited in thit country.
How it will be relithed generally is
yet to be learned by me. As far as
accounts have been received from the
southern aud western counties, the
sentiment with respect to the proceed
ings of the Convention ia favorable;
whether the knowledge of this, or con
victions of the impropriety of with
holding the Constitution from State
Conventions, hat worked most in the
breast of Colonel M., I will not decide;
bat the fact is, he Jia declared une
quivocally (in letter to me) for its
going to the people; had his sentiments,
however, been opposed to tho measure,
instructions, which are given by the
freeholders of this oounty to their
Representatives, would have secured
hit vote for it. Yet, I have no doubt
but that this assent will be accompa
nied by the most tremendous appre
hensions and highest colorings to his
objections. To alarm the people seem t
to be the ground-work of his plan.
The want of a qualified-wivigation act
ia already deolared to be a means by
which the produce of the Southern
States will be reduced to nothingand
will become a monopoly of the North
ern and Eastern States. To. enumer
ate all his objections is unnecessary
because they are detailed in the ad
dress of the seceding members of the
Assembly of Pennsylvania, which, no
doubt, y oi have seen. I scarcely
think that any .powerfull opposition
will bo made to the Constitution being
submitted to the people of thit State.
If it it given, it will be at that meeting
in which, I hope, you will make it con
Teniant to attend. F-xpUpstien will

Perilous Adventure.
A youiig couple living just abovo
Windsor came to thiscity on Saturday
to visit sorao friends. They reside
near tho shore of the river on the other
side, and it had been their custom to
cross in n small boat and return when
ever inclination suited them. They
had been making a brief visit in this
"ity.last week, aud intended to return
home on Saturday morning.
A strong north-west gale wat blow
ing at that time, and their friends at
tempted to dissuade them from return
ing. Especially did they think it un
wise to venture out in a small boat,
and the safer route by the regular fer
ry was urgod. Rut the gentleman had
every faith iu hie ability to manage a
boat, no matter how the wavea might
run, and his wife had equal confidence
in her husband. 'At least she deter-
"-.I- . ..fV -.
They accordingly tet eut. It wat
scaroely daylight in the morning when
they started out. The family on the
other aide of the river expected thoir
arrival,.an4wheu the morning passed
by and they did net come anxiety be
gan to manifest itsalf. Shortly after
dinuer one of the family came to this
side to aacertain the cause of their de
tention. Judgo of his astonishment to
find thntt they had set oat for home
very early in the morning. ' As they
had not arrived,' it wua immediately
conjecture that the boat had been over
turned in the galo, and that they had
drowned. Inquiry waa immediately set
cn foot.
A man at one Df the mills in the up
per part ef the city, who saw them set
out, reported that shortly afterward
he saw a small boat, which he identifi
ed aa boing the tame, drifting down
the river, and bottom side up. This
seemed to decide their fate and their
friends gave them up aa lost.
On Monday morning, however, the
missing couple returned to their home
to the astonishment and delight of
the;r friends. It seems that, upon
reaching the middle of the river, they
found the gale to be much more vie
lent than they had supposed. When
the full force of the gale wat felt, the
boat was filled with water and nearly
capsized. The strength of a tingle
roan could not manage, it, and it wat
driven a wreck upon Belle Isle, just
above the city. Though completely
saturated with water, and nearly fro
xen with the increasing cold, the gen
tleman and his wife mtnaged to oling
to the little craft until it was driven
ashore. Thoy then made their way to
one of the residences on the uWtnd,
which they reached in a benumbed
and almostfainting condition.
The gale still continuing throughout
the day and night of Sunday, it was
impossible to reach the main land.-
The capsized, boat which was seen
drifting down the river ons Saturday
proved to belong- io a Schooner whioh
was lying aihore and . from which it
had broken awav.

Tom Benton's Advice.
A representative, In bis maiden
speech on the floor of Congrett, in re
ply to an opponent, by hie telling hits
witty tsy ingt and pant kept the IIonne
in a roar of laughter for nearly half an
hour, closing amid quite a demonstra
tion of approbation, and, at he thought
with euccess.' What was his surprise,
after having received the congratula
tions of several of hit friends at the
close of the day's proceedings, to be
greeted by Mr. Benton, who, laking
him aside, said ' ,
.'Sir, I heard your speech. , I have
been here many years. This is your
first session. , , Will you permit me, to
give you a bit of advice?',' . ' .
' Certainly, Sir'" wat the reply. .- "I
shall feel honored by vour courtesy."
"Well, Sir," taid Mr. Benton, "your
peech whs exceedingly brilliant: it
sparkled with wit; it was funny, they
laughed most heartly At it; but never
do such a thing here again, if you wish
to advance as a statesman and at a
politician."
,' What I" said the astonished dispu
taut, "never make a speech I"
"No, Sir, not that; but never make
people laugh."
"Not make pcoplelaugh, Mr. Benton!
Why, it requires considerable genius
to make a witty speech."
. "True, Sir; but the public has a poor
appreciation of genius; you must gain
a ri'putiition, for wisdom, not wit; you
can gain a reputation for wisdom iu

Frightful Accident to Two Rope
Frightful Accident to Two Rope Walkers in San Francisco.
A shocking catastrophe, which may
be attonded with fatal results, occured
a few days tince at the Willowt. Miss
Rosa Celeste, tho well knrwn fundani
bulist, or rope-walker, waa advertised
to wheel a burrow with a man named
Keunovan (the pedestrian in italoog a
cable stretched from a high platform to
the top of the pavilion. It appears,
that when the time came for perform
ing the feat, it wat found that Kenuo
van waa distrustful of Miss Colests't
ability to wheell him across in safety,
and had been nerVin&Jiimself with
liquof. ' Miss Celeste declined tOUfP
dertako the feat with a timid man : but
as the audience misunderstanding her
action, jeered her for her want of cour
age, ahe was stung into the imprudence
of attempting it. Before Miss Celeste
had gone ten feet from the platform,
and when the waa twenty two feet
from the ground, hercompanion in the
barrow changed hit position. By the
aid of the balancing pole she had near
ly recovered the shock to her equilibri
um, and again essayed to go on, when
the foolish man moved the second time
and Celeste, Kennovan and thejbarrow
came to the earth. Kennovan was un
dermost, and, besides bruisos from the
fall, he waa terribly mangled by tho
iron work of the barrow, which tore hit
ear from the socket and larcerated the.
muaclea of hit neck. Celeste elnng to
her pole, and one end of it striking the
ground, broke her fall before it snapped
and she struck on her elbow, breaking
it and her shoulder bond but aaving
her head, and thus escaping instaneeua
death. There are doubts respecting
the fate of both, as the medical attend
ants can not tell what internal injuries
have been received.

greeting of a kisa. On Friday night,
however, the brute went home later
than usual something near ten o'clock
and the wife had retired. Not meet
ing her at the door, bis jealousy aroee
to a fighting point, and he instantly
went to the back door, expecting to
find a mare's nest, and sure enough he
did. The first thing he saw, after en

locked the boots iu a closet and obtain

apartment, but to hie astonishment he

the house from top to bottom, but no

pleasantly, to both husband and wife.
The brute, however, told hie better
half that he had her lover'a boots, and
through them he would yet know the
scoundrel. Divorce was talked of and
the wife's protestations that she was
innocent only brought the reply of
"boots." She cried, "I am not guilty!'
and he vociferated "boots." Morning
at last came, and the onraged husband

them up stairs ; shaking them in his
wife's face, when upon a close examin

sensible woman, forgave him, and she

Where the Mormons Come
From.
' A Mofmon elder, in a long and well
written article in the Galaxy t for Oct.

the Mormon body? "
"The Mormons are Wesleyans. TVe

peculiarities eiu'h as polygamy -o-from
the aniient Wesleyans. Most of us are,
from that body from t the Wesley sa

Methodist, and a member of the con

The Men to Marry.
.Punch gives some good advice to
women in looking for suitable hus
bandt. Among other things he taid :
"The man who don't take tea, ill
treatt the cat, takee snuff, and stands
with his back to the lire, is a brute
whom I would not advise you to mar
ry on any consideration, cither for love
or money, but decidedly not for love.
But the man who, when tea is over, is
discovered to have had none, is very
sure to nrake a good husband. Patience
like his deserves being rewarded with
the best of wives and the best of moth
ers in-law. My dears, when you meet
with such a man do your best to mar
ry him. In the severest of winter ho
would not mind going to bed first. .'
fa A San Francisco, paper says
that Miss Alice Kingsburrt the actress
went to the Baptist church in that city
recontly and volunteered to teach a
class in the Sunday achool. The offer
wae accepted, and the superintendent
complimented the lady on the manner
in which she performed the duties. He,
however, when lecturing to the chil
dren on their duties, warned them to
shun the theater, for it was a "light
house of hell, and all acton and ac
tresses were emissaries of the devil."
Miss Kingsbury got up and stated that
she wat an actress and a member of
the church, and in a thort speech do
fended the profession in a manner that
placed hort du combat the man who had
opened the war.
