Patented Sept. 12, 1854 Description of Gfnkbal Washington bv an English Tiiaveleh ?On this day General Washington terminated his 64th year; but though not an unhealthy man, he seemed con siderably older The innumerable vexations ho has met with, In his different public capa cities, have very sensibly impaired the vigor of his constitution, and given him an aged ap pearance. There is something very austere in his countenance ; and in his manners he is uncommonly reserved. I have heard some officers who served with him in the recent campaign say that they never saw him smile during all the time they were with him. No man can boast of having been on an easy and familiar footing with him The height of his person is about five feet eleven ; his chest full, and his limbs, though slender, well shaped and muscular. His head is small, his eyes are of a light color ; and. in proportion to his face, bis nose is long. Mr. Stuart, the portrait painter, told me that there are features iu his face totally different from what he observed in any other human being. All his features, he remarked, were indicative of the strongest and most ungovernable pas sions ; and, had he been born in the forest, it wai his opinion, he would have been the fiere o.t man among the say age tribes. And thoee who have been the longest and most intimate ly acquainted with him oonflrm this opinion of Stuart's; for they say he is by nature a man of fierce and irritable disposition, but, like Socrates, his judgment anu great self command have always made him appear a man of different oast in the eyes of the world, ii ,w*: ?a: 0 ' a?ex? a George III ackaowledging American Inde pendence At an early hour on the 6th or December, 17S2, in conformity with previous arrange ment*, I *u conducted by tbe K-trl of Ferrer# to tbe very entrance of tbe House of Lord*.

The wall# were hung with dark tapestry, representing tbe de feat of the Spanish Armada. I had the plea >ure of recognizing in the crowd of spectators Copley, and We?t the painter, with some American ladies I also noticed pome de jected American royalists in the group After waiting nearly two hours. the ap proach of tbe king was announced by a tre mendous roar of artillery. He entered by a small door on the left of the throne, and im mediately .e .ted him?e'f upon the chair of stat:, in a graceful attitude, with his right foot resting upon a stool. He was clothed in roy*l robes Apparently agitated, be drew from bb pocket tbe scroll containing hi* speech Tbe Commons were summoned, and nfter the bustle of their entrance had tub sided, he proceeded to read his speech I was near the King, and watched with in tense interest every t< nt of his toice and every motion of bis countenance It was to me a moment of thrilling and dignified exul titim Alter tome general and u.-ual re marks, he continued .

I lost no time in giving the necessiry or ders to prohibit the further prosecution of of fensive war up in the continent of North Amcrica Adopting, as my inclination will always lead me to do, with decision and effect, whatever I collect to be the sense of my Par liament and my people, I have pointed all iny views and measures, in Europe. as in North America, to an entire and cordial re conciliation with the colonies Finding it In dispensable to the attainment ef this object. I did not hesitate to go to the full length of tbe power vested in me, and offer to declare them"?[here be paused in evident agitation, either embarrassed iu reading bis speech by tbe darkness of tbe room, or affected by a very natural emotion; in a moment be re sumed] and offer to declare tbem free and independent States In thus admitting their reparation from the crown of these kingdoms, 1 bare sacrificed every consideration of my own to the wL-hcs and opinions of my people. I make it my bumble and ardent prayer t?? Almighty God that Great Britain may not feel tne evils which might result from so great a di:memberment of the empire, and (hat America may be free from the calamities which have formerly proved in the mother country, how essential monarchy is t? tbe en joynient of constitutional liberty Religion, language, interests, and affection may, and I hope will, yet prove a bond of permanent union between the two countries " It is remarked, that George III is celebra ted for reading Lid speeches in adistinot, free, and impressive manner. On this occasion, he was evidently embarrassed : be hesitated, choked, and executed tbe painful duties of tbe occasion with an ill grace that does not belong to him. I cannot adequately portray my sensations in tbe progress of this address ; every artery beat bigu, and swelled with toy proud American blood It was impossible Lot to revert to the opposite shores of the Atlantic, r.ni to review, in my mind's eye. the misery and woe I had myself witnessed, in several stages of tbe contest, and the wide spread des olation resulting from the stubbornness of this very kii;g, now so prostrate, but who had turned a deaf car to ocr humble and impor tunate petitions for relief.

Of What Women arc made *( Of earthly goods, the best is a good wife; A bad, the blttt resi curse of human life." Simonides, a poet famous in his generation, who fl >urisbed about four hundred years after tbe scigc of Troy, tells us in a noted satire, that the gods formed the souls vf women oat of those seeds and principles which compose sev eral kinds of animals and elements; aad that their good and bad dispositions arise in them according as such and such seeds and princi ples predominate in their constitutions He says : " The souls of one kind of women were formed out of those ingredients which com pose a swine A woman of this make is a slov en in her house and a glutton at her table A second kind is of tbe fox, foxy, ani has an insight into everything, good or bad ; some of this cla?* are viciou*. and some virtuous. " A third kind of women were made up of canine partioles; theso are scolds, always barking ani snarling, and live in perpetual clamor. 44 A fourth kind were mtdeout of the earth. Such are the sluggards, who pass their time iq indolence and ignorance, hang over the fire a whole winter, and apply themselves with alacrity to no kind of business but eating "Tbe fifth species of females were made out of tbe sea; are variable, uneven tempers, sometimes all storm and tempest, sometimes all caim and sunshine. "The sixth species were made of such In gredients as compose an aas or beast of burden; these are naturally slothful and obstinate, but upon tbe husband exerting his authority, will live upon hard fare, do everthing to please them. " The cat furnished materials for a ssventh spocies of women, who are of melancholy fro ward, utiamiable nature, and so repugnant to tbe offers of love that they fly in tbe face of their husband when be approaches them with conjugal endearments 1 nis species of women are likewise subject to little thefts, cheats, and pilferings. " The eight species of females were taken out of the ape These are such as are both ugly and ill natured. who have notbing beau tiful in themselves, and endeavor to detract from or ridicule everything which appears eo in others. " The mare with a flowing mane, which was never broke to servile toil or labor, composed a ninth species of women. These are they who have little regard for the husband*, who pass away their time in dressing bathing and perfuming, who throw their hair into the nicest curls, and trick it up in the fairest flow ers and garland^ A woman of this species is a very pretty thing for a stranger to look upon, but very detrimental to tbe owner unless it be a king or a prince who takes a fancy to such a toy. " Tbe tenth and last species of women were made out of the bee; and happy is the man who gets such a one for his wife She is alto gether faultless and unbiameable. Her family flourishes and improves by ber good manage ment. Sto loves ber husband and is beloved by ftim. She brings him a r?ce of beautiful and virtuous children. She distinguishes her self among her sex. She is surrounded with graces. Sne never sits among the loose tribe of women, nor passes her time with them in wanton discourses She is full of virtue and prudence, and is the best wile that Jupiter can bestow on man." fy A rascally editor out West eays that if you observe a gentleman with his arm arouod a young iady, it is morally oertain they are not married. iy An Illinois paper aaaomnoee the mar ria^e of Mr. Wolf to Miss Mary Lamb.
