There was not a point in which you oould object
to honest old Jjho Muddler, Mine-Host of the
?4 White House"?for thus, patriotically, he had
?tamed his inu. It is not requisite to mention
that the iuu in quistiou was two stories in
height, built of the sandstone peculiar to the
district, and every window iu front and else
where latticed, and burnished like so many
minors?or that the house was white washed
without aud sanded withiu; nor is it uecessary
we should count the sparrows that are flitting
iu and out under the shingled roof, or the doves
that ure strutting aud pluming themselves by
the dove-cote, behind one of the two gable
chimneys. With all these we have nothing to
d<> just now; iu fact with nothing about the tidy j
little establishment but the merry party round j
the clean-sprcad deal tabic in the " best par
lor where prebides the most conspicuous
figure, iu a huge old-fashioned armchair, burly
John himself, with all becoming dignity. About
half a dozen others, all young men between the
ages of eighteen and tw, uty-five, were ranged
to the right and left of mine-host, who, at the
instant we speak of, was in the act of thumping
the table emphatically with a corkscrew which
he held in his hand. He struck the table vigor
ously once or twice, and exclaimed,
41 Well, boys, what say we?done?"
41 Aye, done!" echoed all, simultaneously.
" I'm to provide the eatables and drinkables,
hey ? They're going to be first-rate; you shan't |
complain o' them; the old 'oman can make as
good a cake or p'e as any pretty little mouth in
the village could wis!.1'?that they know*; and aB
fur the black bottles, wkj I guess you can all
say a good word fur them!' (Then, without
allowing time for a reply, miue-fcost continued:)
44 But I tell you what, boys, I don't think you
can get the young gals to go; they're so timid,
you know, poor things ! They 're dreadful
skeered 'bout that Witch, as they calls her, up
?there at Oolding Gorge; an' I don't b'lieve all
tbef pic-nicB in ther world could make 'em go
44There's no harm in asking them, I suppose,"
remarked a tall, handsome youth, with long
rich brown hair, who sat nearly opposite old
John. John raised his head, and, looking him
steadily in the face with a peculiar smile, said,
44 No?a, certainly not, Mister Ed'n! there
ain't no great harm in that; an' 1 thiuk ef any
body stands a chance o' gittin' 'em to go, you
do, you know! Jest you git that sweet little
angel o' your'n to agreo to go, and I'll bet a
bottle o' my prime ole beer there won't be one !
o' the sugars 'II stay behind."
4'HeiloI John, that ain't fair," interrupted
one or two Voices, as Edwin Kerry, who had
just been addressed, colored to the temples, i
44 Stop, old fellow," continued another; "why,
you've made Ned's cheeks fiie color of your
nose, he blushes so !"
44 No reflectious on my nose, ef you please,
Mislur Harry," siid old John, good-naturedly,
to the last speaker, 44 Mister Ed'n don't mind
me a bit 1"
" Not a bit," said young Berry, now quite
recovered, 14not a bit, as you say, John; and
if you think I could prevail with Miss Bell to
go, I've no objection to try it." i
'4 I've no doubt of it," said John ; 44 an' now, ?
boys, let's understand it. It's goin' to be a reg
lar pic nic?none o' your half-way things?
a ride in buggies an' on horseback twenty good
miles?ther day after to-merrow?dinner at 2,
supper at 6."
44 That's it," exclaimed all, laughing at John's
precise mention of the hour of meals; and in
ten minutes after, the White House was de
serted by the little party, and the preliminaries
arranged for a revelation of the mysteries of
Oolding Gorge.
(End of chapter 2d.)
Exchange Papers.?We continue to receive by every
mail newspapers containing our little card 44 To tlie Pub
lic," and asking an exchange. Our offer in that has been
long since revoked. tf
Consul Owen.
The letter from our intellectual, humane, and
intrepid consul at Havana, will, we are sure,
be pronounced by Concha, the Captain-General
of Cuba, and by one or two editors of the
United States, (but not by one in England!) a
triumphant defence against the charges of in
humanity and imbecility preferred by the gal
lant, but indiscreet, Americans, who embarked
in the unfortunate expedition against that
island. By all others in the United States, in
England, and throughout Christendom, the de
fence of Consul Owen will be declared wholly
unsatisfactory, puerile, and contemptible. As
Americans, we feel humiliated and chagrined
in the contemplation of the fact that there was
one of our countrymen, and be holding an im
portant position abroad, who could, on this la
mentable occasion, evince such cold-blooded
and craven qualities, or such pitiable mental
Let us, however, give the ignoble Consul the
benefit of his defence; it is his due, and he is j
welcome to all it can gain for him. Let it be
calmly perused by the world at large, but espe
cially by President Fillmore, who, it may be, i
feels some concern in the matter. It carries
with it its own eloquent commentary.
Whether Mr. Owen's conduct is to be as
cribed to his voluntary choice, or to the re- !
?training influence of the President's procla
mation and private instructions, we of course <
cannot know; but in either case he is a despised i
and a degraded man in the land of his birth. 1
The almost universal voice of his countrymen
condemns and execrates his conduct; and his
uame will in future be associated with events
as disgraceful to uur nation as they were cruel
and piteous in their nature. Let not, however,
this reproach fall upon the guiltless. The
names of Crittenden, Brandt, Kerr, Vienne,
and the rest, will henceforth be often spoken
in kindly accents; but let not the heart of
affection be saddened by the story of a hus
band and, a father's disgrace. Arnold and Bun
were false to their oountry ; but our Cousul at
Cuba has been false to every feeling of frater
nity, and has proved a traitor to every senti
ment of humanity. He cannot, even in distant
climes, find a refuge from contempt; for the
pity and compassion he shoulc' have shown his
countrymen were felt by the representatives of
other nations at Tuba; and offices of consoling
friendship, in the dark hour of calamity, were
rendered to American citizens by the consular
agents of far-distant monarchs.
It has been said that Mr. Owen could not
have so far misunderstood the views of the
President! Let us know what those views
were. We know them, so far as the Proclama
tion reveals them ; and it may be our fault, but
we caunot see that he has varied much from
the spirit of what ie there expressed. If he
had other and more minute instructions to
guide him, it i? right the publio should know
it. Whether obedient or disobedient to the
Executive orders, he is a fallen men. All that
remains to be decided is, it h? alone to/ ill f
An Op> Man.?There is now living near the
east end of Bridge street, in Georgetown, an
old gentleman by ths name of William Hardy.
He is a native of Ireland, whence he emigrated
to this oountry about tho time she gained her
I independence. He landed in Baltimore, but
removed to the former place many years be
fore the town was incorporated by the Legisla
ture of Maryland. He reoollects distinctly
when there was not an improved street iu
the town, and but three houses on Bridge street;
and when the Methodist denomination, which
now numbers some six or eight hundred mem
bers, white aud colored, worshipped in an old
cooper-shop, the preacher using the chopping
block as n stand to preach from. He does not
know the date of his birth, but judging from
circumstances, aud events of which he has a
distinct recollection, we have no doubt that he
hrts nearly, if not quite, filled up his hundred
Old Time seems to havo dealt gently with
him; his mental faculties appear to be unim
paired, and he will frequently run his mind
back to the days of his childhood, and trace his
history upward, and interest his friends with a
recital of many striking and interesting events
and strange coincidences through which he has
passed. His sense of bearing is acute; he never
used spectacles, and is very fond of conversa
tion. His disposition is lively aud cheerful,
sometimes even playful, and he walks erect aud
at a brisk pace. He is a regular attendant at
the Methodist church, of which he has been a
member for more than seventy years. May
repose and every comfort be his during the few
remaining days of his well-spent life.
The Man that loves a Muss.?Gen. Webb,
editor of the New l'ork Courier and Enquirer,
though no doubt possessing some very good
traits of character, is evex in a miut with some
body. He left the army at an early period of
his life, as is understood, on account of a must;
he had a mwi with the old United States Bank;
he had a mutt with General Duff Green ; he had
a series of muttn with James Gordon Bennett;
he had a mutt with the late Mr. Cilley; he had
a mutt with Tom Marshall; he had a mutt with
General Taylor; he had a mutt with the United
States Senate; he had a tnutt with N. P. Willis;
and now he has had a ?nutt with General Wool
of the army. One peculiarity about the Gen
eral is, that when he does not come off first
best?which he never does?he is sure to be
second; and that is very consoling!
Odd-Fellows' Funeral.?The remains of
our lamented fellowrdtizen, the late Captain
J. A. Blake, which arrived here from New
lork on Wednesday night, were yesterday
committed to the tomb. The obsequies were
conducted by Central Lodge of the I. O. 0. F.,
of which Captain Blake was an old and respect-1
ed member, and by the Grand Lodge, of which, |
also, he was Past Grand Master. The funeral
escort was conducted by the Washington Light
Infantry, Captain Tate, which was first com
manded by the deceased. The proccssion of
the Order was large and imposing, and pro
ceeded from the late residence of Captain B.
to the Congressional Burying Ground, under
the direction of R. W. Grand Marshal Hunt.
The Marine nnd Washington Light Infantry
Bands were in atteudancc.
Another State.?We see it stated that, by
he late treaty with the See-see-tran and Wah
>ay-toau band? of Sioux Indians, the United
Jtates obtain over twenty-one millions oi' acres,
ying east of a line drawn from the heau wa
rn of the Red River of the North, to intersect
.he northwestern corner of the State of Iowa.
The purchase includes part of the magnificent
Blue Earth River country, and that aivund the
head waters of the Dos Moines and St. Peter's
rivers. The Indians are allowed to remain on
the land two years. For this cession they are
to receive $1,665,000. The Galena papers
proposo that the name Dacota be given to the
new Territory, and such may yet be the name I
of one of the States of the Union.
Business Prosperity.?A fact related in the
New York Star the other day may be worthy
; the consideration of Washington business men.
The editor says that in running over the list of
heavy failures which have occurred in that city
during the past ten days, he does not find the
name of a single house that bad advertised ex
tensively in any popular medium!
Miss Catharine Hates.?The first concert
of this lady at New York, according to the
journals of that city, was a highly successful
one, and she is pronounced an accomplished
artist and exceedingly sweet singer. We quote
a few words of comment from the Tribune:
Catharine Hayes's voice is one of marvellous
compass, extending from the highest soprano
tones to the deepest contralto. Her highest
notes are inferior in purity, in strength, and in
sweetness to Jenny Lind's, but her lowest are
fuller and finer. She seems possessed of all
vocal accomplishments. Her trill, her persist
ency of breath, and purity of tone in crescendo
passages, her skilful blending of the different
i registers?all of this is unimpeachable, as be
| came apparent tn the progression of pieces an
nounced in the programme. Wo should not,
perhaps, lay so much stress upon Miss Hayes's
, ballad singing as seems to be dons by most of
her friends. She certainly sings a fine ballad,
i a finer in some (though not all) respects than
Jenny Lind; but, from what we heard of this I
| first concert, we cannot but think that in opera,
1 and in the warm Italian style, shs would please
us most.
Tna Stort commenced on our first page to
day will be found worthy a perusal and of pre
servation. It will be completed in three or four
Shot hixselv.?Mr. 0. Burch Suit, near Upper
Marlboro, Md., accidentally shot himself in the
leg, on Tuesday last. The wound is severe.
Thi Steamer Mississippi.?She got aground
near Smyrna, on her way to Constantinople to
receive Kossuth, but was got off undamaged by
taking out her guns and other lading; she
would be able to get to Constantinople in season
to accomplish the purpose of her mission.
We omitted to state yesterday that the Friend
ship and Sun fire companies, of Alexandria,
! came to the aid of our firemen on Wednesday
night. They were gladly welcomed by our
I firemen.
