W4'AlnouTo AND IaS Moarnmu.-As 1:
bad been popularly known, for several
weeks before tis votes of the electors were
lly ca!nvssmed, that Washington was
unaamoauy chosen President, his prepar
stines foo entering upon the duties of the
edle wets all completed before the arri
val ofMr. Thompson at Mount Vernon, on
the fburteenth of April. Id a letter to
Gmenel Knox, he says "As to this
delq m'y be compared to a eve; for
tconfldence I tell you, (with the world it
obtkin little credit,) that my move
msn to the seat of government will be
aeoompanIed with feelings not unlike those
of a culprit who is going to the place of
ezseution, so unwilling am I, in the eve
ning of life, nearly consumed in public
cares, to quit a peaceifl abode for an ocean
of dfficulles." He, however lpformed Mr.
Thompson that at the end of two days he
would be ready to accompany him, and in
the meantime paid a visit to his venerable
mother in Fredericksburg. On coming in
to her presence, "The people, madam, have
been pleased, with most flattering unanimi
t, elect me to the chief magistracy of
: United State; but before I can assume
the i netions of that office, I have come to
bid you an affectionate farewell. So soon
as the public business, which must necessa.
rily be encountered in arranging a new gov
ernment eqn be disposed of, I shall hasten
to Virginia, and"- Here she interrupted
him: "You will seems no more," she said;
"my great age, and the disease that is rap.
idly approaching my vitals, warn me that
Ishall not be long in this world. I trust
in God I am somewhat prepared. for a bet
ter. But go, George; fhlfl! the high desti
nies which Heaven appears to as_,gn you:
go, my son, and may that Heaven's and
your mother's blessing be with you always."
He was deeply affected; his head rested
on the shoulder of his aged parent, whose
arm feebly yet fondly encircled his neck.
The scene was full of the most touching
sablimity. Both the mother and son were
dissolved in tears at the thought that they
were embracing each other for the last
time. There is no fame in the world more
pure than of the mother of Washington;
and no woman, since the mother of Christ,
has left a better claim to the affectionate
reverence of mankind.
In his diary he wrote on the evening of
the sixteenth: " About 10 ,o'clock I bade
adieu to Mount Vernon, to private life, and
to domestic felicity; and, with a mind op
premed with more anxious and painful
sensations than I have words to express,
set out for New York, with Mr. Thompson
and Colonel Humphreys, with the best dis
position to render service to my country in
obedience to its call, but with less hopes of
answering its expectations."-Olive Branch.
MANAGEMENT OF CJILDREB.-Thcre are
two methods of bringing up children. The
one strives to accomplish this by force and
restraint, making no allowance for the di
versity of temperament constantly occur
ring, treating the natural buoyancy and
hilarity of childhood as if they were the
exception and not the rule; and in short
trying to crush out the tendency to evil,
which in the most favored dispositions exist
only in too great a proportion. The other
method, taking into view the elements of
e bch character, by studying its development
wat h its tndenoies, and estimating tbh
vigora intln ty qt its Operation, anM0
cipates every movemht, guidesits impulses
into safe channels, and smooths from its
path obstacles which might impede its pro
g.r. In the former as a result we geton
fythe difference of the forces; in the latter
e sum of all. We think facts will bear
out the assertion that restraint has failed
as a rule for the management of children
and that it is beyond dispute that more
fiquent instances of hopes blighted by the
profligacy of children have occurred under
that than under a lees stringent form of
government. Experience shows that gov
ernment to be the strongest which makes
the least display of its force, and a spirit
of stubborn obltinacy is often awakened

the state papers extant on the question of state
rights as announced in the Virginia Resolutions
of '98 and '99. The publication will embrace
also the works of standard writers, such as
John Taylor of Caroline, whose works are now
nearly out of print. These valuable political
data will he carefully collected, and when com

history of our Federal Union. The subscrip

senators in congress) will be furnished regular

each subscriber will feel that he is performing
a duty to a great and sacred political principle

It is time for us to go go back to those pure
principles upon which the great fabric of de

by those who created, and best understood the
true meaning of the constitution. It is time
that the friends of state sovereignty should ral
ly around some common nucleus, to resist the
wild latitudinarianism of the age, and evident
tendency of the republic towards concentration
-to end at best in a mixed monarchy. It is
time for each states-rights man to feel that he
must give his own personal individual influence
to the defense of the very corner-stone of our
We send the Review to the subscribers of
the State-Rights Register, and feel confident
that they will respond heartily to the call.

uphold, an inspired Constitution to defend.
