THE L'INE-TREE SHILLIXG.
BV NiTllAVi.i. HAWTHORN.
Captti . John Hull was the mint-master of Massachusetts,
and coined all the money that was made there. His wa.? .1
now line of business, for, in the earlier days of the colony,
the errrrent coinage consisted ?f the g >M and stiver monev
of England. Portugal, ami Spain. These coins being scarce,
the people were often forced to barter their commodities in?
stead of selling thou.
For instance, if a man wanted to buy a coat, he perhaps
exchanged n hoar-skin for it If he wished for u barrel of
moloses, he might purchase it with :i pile ?C pine boards.
Musket bullets wer,, used instead ol farthings. The Indians
lud a sort of niotn-y called wampum, which was made of
clam -hells; and this strange sort of specie wns likewise
taken in payment nf debts by the English settlers. I'm:!!,
lull- had m-.er been Itcard of. There wasnot moneyenotisli
of any kind, in nsuny part- of the country, to pay their min?
isters, -o that they had sometimes to take iptintids of fish,
bushels of corn, or cords of wood, instead of silvn or gold.
As the people grow more numerous, and their trad with
one another increased, the want of current money was still
more sensibly felt. To supply the demand, the general court
passed 11 I iv. fm establishing a coinage ol' shillings, six?
pences, and threepences. Captain John Hull was nppoiuteil
i.> manufacture this money, ami was to have about ouo -lul
ling out ofevi ry twenty, to pay bun for bis trouble of making
them.
Hereupon, all th ? old silver in the.colony was hnndedover
to Captain John Hull. The battered silver cans and tank
ards, i suppose, dud silver buckles, am! brekun spoons, ami
. buttons ot worn.t coats, and silyct hilts of swords
lliut had figured at court, all.such curious old articleswere
ihtoe>slos ? thrown into the inciting pot together, uttt by
far the greater part of the silver consisted ofbuJltoa from tin;
mines of South America, which the English buccaniers, (who
w ere little better than pirates,) hod taken from the Spaniards,
and brought to Massachusetts.
? All this (>I,| and new silver beim: molted down ami coined,
the result was an immense umoui of splendid'shillings, iix
pences, and cpenccs. Each had lite date of 1653. on the
one side, and the figure ot' a pine-tree on tue other side.
Her.ce ilicy-werc coiled pine-tree shilling?. Anil lot .?..:;.
twenty shillings that in- coined you will remember, Captain
John Hull v.a- entitled to put one shilling in his own pocket.
The magistrate soanbegnu to suspect that the mint-master
would li r e the best of the bargain. They offered him a
large sum of money, if he would give up dint 20lb shilling,
which lie was continually dropping into his own pecker.
Hut Captain Hull declared he was perfect!} satisfied with
the shilling. Ami well lie might lie; for s.i diligently did he
labor, in a fe\v years, hi- pockets, his money i.ti-s. and hi
strong box. were eycrllowhis with pine-tree shillings. 1 his
was probably the case, when he cam- into possession of
Grandfather's chair; ami as lie had worked ... h ud at tie'
mint, i: was certainly proper that he should ha >? a c imforta
ble chair to test himself "t>.
W hen the mint-muster had grown very rich, a young man,
Sumuel Sewell by name, came a courting his only daughter.
His daughter?whose name I do no: know : !>.it we will rail
her Betsev. Betsey?w as a tine, hearty damsel! by no means
so slender as some voting ladies of our-own-days. On the
contntrv, having always fed bcartilj on puoipkiapiua, dough?
nut*, Indian puddings,and other puritan dainties, she was as
round atul plump as a pudding. With this -round rbsj Miss
Betsey, did Samuel Sewcll fill it: love. As he was a young
man of good character, industrious in supines*, ami a mrm
.ber of the church, the niint-moster sen reodily uave trisj
consent.
?? Yes?you may take her." said he. i;' ii- rough ivuy, ? and
you will find her a heavy burden enough.*'
On the wedding day we mav suppose titat honest tl .11
dressed himself in n plain colored e.-ar. all the buttons of
which w.u.- made of pine-tree shillings. Th ? buttons of his
waistcoat were sixpences: and the knees .:' hi- small .-lnfln-s
were I tttoncd w ith silver threepences. Thus attired, he sat
with jreat dignity in hi- CTandCithcr's chair: and being a
portlv old gentleman, he completely tilled it from clliow :.>
e;t>.iw. < hi tilt' otirio-ito s;.le .'! the I'Mntii, hef.veen her
le-maids, -a: Mi-- Betsey. She was blushing with all
bet might, and 1 toked like a fnii bloom peony, a groat red
appl ?. or any other round and ssarlet object.
! to... was the bridegroom, dressed in a hue purple
coat, and gold lace waistcoat*, with as much other finery as
the Puritan laws ami customs would allow him to pot on.
His hair was croptclose to hi- head, i.tuse Gov; Endicott
?. ;.i fi chidden any man i" wear it. below the ears. But he
was a VL-ry personable you g man : and so thought th'.' orid> -
maids, ant! Mi-s Betsey herself;
The mint-master also was pleased wt&his new son-in-law;
esj ' ..illy a- lie had saht nothing at all ah' lit her portion.
So when th.- marriage ceremony was over, Captain Hull
whispered a word to two of his men-servants, who imreo
diati ly went out. and soon returned, lugging in a large pair
of icales. liny we;.- such a pair as whole-ale merchants
use I r weighing: buhVv commodity was now t*? beyveighed
'? Daughter Betsey,*' said the ramFraaster, "go into one

Mis- Betsey?or Mrs. S .veil, as wc must now call her?

Captain Hnll the:: tool: a key out ot his girdle, tmlocked

t.. the brirn of brisht pme-shillings, fresh from the mint, and
Samuel Sewell bewail t'1 think that hi- fathei-in-law had got
possession of all the money in the Ma-3 i h Treasury.
Bat it was.only the mwt-rnaster's honest share of die'cotrsagc;
Then the servvnt-. at Captain Hull's romtnanJ, heapitd

rhe children laughed heartily at this legend, and would
hanlly be convinced '.? ;t that grandfather had mode it out of
hi- own head, He assured them faithfully, however, that
he had fraud it in the pages bl a grave historian,aad had merefv

WaSUI.NGTOM, May 13, lyll.
Yesterday was very solemnly observed, according to the
- ir.rtit:. v.tion oi the President, as a slay of Fasting, Hu?
miliation ami Prayer, by the different religious denomina
tions of our city. All business was suspended ia the Public
Offices, and by the citizens without distinction of party, und
the quiel of the Sabbath prevailed in the streets and mar?
kets. Th-: ceremonies at St. John's Church, in which the
departed President worshipped, were peculiarly imposing;
The church was hung with black drapery throughout, and
the pew in which Gen. Harrison used to sit was shrouded
with crape. Ko'one has ever entered it sauce his death ; and
on this occasion it remained empty, though the body ot the
church, aisies and galleries were crowded to overflowing.
The vacant seat .-poke touchiogly to the heart of the spec?
tators, of him who was reposing in the narrow tomb, and
el those whom he loved, now desolate and sorrowing for
Iii.? los.-, at a distance from the scenes of their late splendor
and joy. President Tyler ami his family were present,
besides the Heads of Departments, Generals Scott, Jesup,
Macomb, ami other distinguished officers, Military, Naval,
ami Civil, and many eminent citizens. The Episcopal
Bishop of Maryland preached a most beautiful and classical
sermon appropriate to the occasion. In tin- afternoon the
Volunteer .Military Companies of the District marched in a
body t? the Unitarian Church, bearing their banners in
mourning : bat without arms or music, where a most elo?
quent discourse was delivered to them by the Rev. Mr. Bull
finch. !:i the evening the religious service ; usual on the
Sabbath were solexinizcd in the different churches. The
day and the ordiu inces have made a powerful impression
on the religious community. May the prayers of a united
people be answered by renewed blessings on our beioved
country !
Among the strangers now on a visit to the seat of Go
verument i- Sir Joseph De Courcy Lallan, of England. He
is a gSlltl -man of yreat intelligence and culture, who is
using the inllucnce of his high rank and splendid fortune for
the :u>biest object?tire promotion ot the good of Ins fellaw
men ; and, despising equally the beguiling pleasures of lash
ionable life, and the courtly gewgaws of the ambitious vul?
gar, he has timed at the honors most worthy of our rational
nature, the distinction of-advancing the cause ot intellect?
ual and moral improvement. With th*? *" J ?' ""r
?..._tins travelled extensively in different quartersoftue
globe; and is now in the course ol a journey over the U.
States, vvh ch h means to extend to other portions of the
American Continent. As a statesman and a philanthropist,
ii- naturally feels a deep solicitude in the present telatiana
between the United States and Great Britain; and would
earnestly exert himself for the preservation of peace. As
might be imagined from his character for humanity, his po?
litical principles arc liberal, in Englaud he goes beyond'
the mass of,the Whigs, as a reformer, and would perhaps
be suspected of republicanism. He was, presented to the
President to day by Gen. Scott. It is an amusing illustra?
tion of the peculiar V way ot life for which Queen Victo?
ria's Envoy Extraordinary is remarkable, that when 5ir
Jo-, ph c tiled on him to-day about noon, he was informed
that Mr Fox was in bed, and had ordered breakfast at half'
pant ', P. M ' T:ie Minister's usual dinner hour is ten o'
cl ick ;ii th? evening. An English gentleman, it is prrj
sumed, would prefer to be presented to the Chief Magis?
trate by the r< present ttiv-" of his o^n sovereign ; but, us et
| leite did not require it. Sir Joseph preferred not to wait,
and availed hltnscil of the o?er of ins friend, Gen. Scott.
The Rev. Mr. Stewart, bearer of despatches from our
squadron in the Mediterranean, has been In Washington
several days. The despatches contain very little informa?
tion beside, what has already been communicated through
the New-York papers derived from the officers of the Bran?
dy? iae The vessels of war had left tho stations in conse
qaence of a communication from the American Minister at
ndon stating the probability of war between England and
America. The other ships, it is presumed by the Navy
Department, re :eiyed information of a different character
- ? i -rw I.--J-, and returned to the .Mediterranean. The
squadron now fitting out for sea, under Commodore Morris,
will Bail for that station, to relieve them, in about three
weeks.
What was in Mr. Stevt aeon's head, or rather hi* nerves,
th tt he c immitted this blunder I Or was his wish father
to :he thought T His party j'i-st now seem lo he very anx
j lou.s for a war with 1 rreat i'.rilain.
The elections for members of Congress thus ur have
strengthened the hopes ?f the Whigs for the prosperity of
the Administration of their choice, and for the success of
the great measures of reform and remedy which will be
brought forward at the Extra Session: Some apprehen
I sions of apathv were entertained ; but the decisions of the
popul?r voice :hu.<= far show that :he Whig strength has in
creaaeii ,-i several of th- htaVs?and e.-pcciallr where a
tailing offwas most ;-.ired?Virginia and Indiana. This is
cheering. The ft i nds of the Government have a deep in?
terest in securing .1 powerful jtippor: to the Administration
in (.'? Ogress, i:' it should be weakened 'here, the ascend?
ancy of the principles on which th* last ur* :: revolution
was achit v--o. might be hazarded, and th* meet beneficent
plans of ill* President and those charged wiih the Execu?
tive Departments mi^ht be embarrassed and defeated At
present &H looks well.
There is a tire stili kept up from this < ity against some
of the Secretaries?and especially against Mr. Pell?by
men who are iadl>j in want of plaett in hit offic? If these
worthies think they can, by arbitrary imputations or calum?
nies, compel him to bestow office on persons of their cali?
bre and character, they mistake the man. The public un?
derstands their tii-iinlertsttdnei*
