I PROPOSE to publish in the city of Washing ton, in September, n political newspaper, un der the name of the WASHINGTON SENTI NEL Ingoing no, it is proper I should make known the principles it will maintain, and the policy it will advocate. It will support cordially and earnestly the prin ciples of the Democratic party of the United States. It does not propose to be the organ of any Depart ment of the Government, except in so fur as an in dependent maintenance of the doctrines of that party may represent its opinions and express its views. It will not be ambitious to commend itself to the people by a blind flattery of their rulers. It will seek public support by the bold avowal of the sentiments which are common to the genuine Democracy of the Union, and by the condemna tion ol all such us may conflict with them, from whatever quarter they may come. It will seek to l>e (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the orgun of the Democratic party of the United States. The Sentinel will maintain, as n fundamental truth of that great party, that the States formed the I nion between them by the ratification of the Con stitution as a compact; by which, also, they created the Federal Government, and delegated to it, us their common ugent, the powers expressly specified in i.t, with an explioit reservation of all others to the States, or to their separate govern ments. The exercise of any powers beyond these thus delegated, is, therefore, an usurpation of the reserved authority of the State* by the agent ot their own creation. The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union upon the basis of the rights of the States?under the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding the latter, it will the more effectually strengthen and perpetuate the former. With regard to the exercise of the powers of the Federal Government, the Sentinel will take as the principles of its action, that Congress shall ex ercise no power which has not been delegated by the Constitution, according to u strict and fair in terpretation of its lunguage and spirit; and that it shall not seek to attain indirectly an object through the exercise of constitutional povsr, for the direct attainment of which it hhs no delegation of poieer. In other words, all powers exercised must be clearly granted, and all granted powers must be used for no purpose, except such as is clearly in tended by the Constitution. In respect to the internal administration of the Government, the Sentinel will sustain the settled policy of the Democratic party. It will labor to inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in ternal policy:?that this Government will best promote the lreedoin and prosperity of the people of the tetates, by being less ambitious to exercise power, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by leaving to the individual States the manage ment of all their domestic concerns?while it con tents itself with guarding the confederacy from external violence, and directing the foreign policy of the country to the promotion of the common interests, and defence of the common rights, and honor of the States composing it. The Sentinel will advocate such a progressive foreign policy as will suit itself to the exigencies, und corresjiond with the expanding interests of the country. 1 hut policy should be energetic and de cided; but should temper firmnexis with liberality, and make its highest ends consist with the strictest principles of justice. The real interests of the country, upon each occasion demanding attention, will be its guide in the course the Sentinel will pursue. The national policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In the growing sense ot weakness of some of the nations of the Old World, and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com mon motive to colonial extension has developed itself. Our settled determination to repel interference from abroad with our domestic concerns, will prompt us to avoid it in the affairs of other conn-"* tries, unless by their foreign or colonial policy our peace should be threatened, our security endan gered, or our interests invaded. For when the selfish interests of other nations prompt a foreign or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights, and places in the pathway of our commerce a dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a policy must be resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be, by war. Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive; but to he properly defensive, it must sometimes be apparently aggressive. Our administration should be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is full of important movements, commercial and political, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is lime we had an American forein policy. We must have it. We cannot avoid it if we would. We have larger interests, and a greater stake in the world and its destiny, than every other people. We occupy the best portion ol a continent, with no neighbors but a colony, and u worn-out. anarchical despotism. We are the only people whose own land, without colonial de pendencies, is washed by the two great oceans ot the world. Our agricultural productions are more varied and more essential to civilized life, and to human progress?our mineral and manufacturing resources more vast?our facilities and copncity for internal und foreign commerce more extended than those of any other people living under one government. A continent, to a great extent, un explored and exhaustless in its yet hidden wealth, is at our feet. European trade seeks the great East through avenues which are nt our doors, or must be made through our own limits. Europe, Asia, Africa, and the isles of the sea. lying all around us, look to us as the rising power, through the agency of whose example, mid ever widening and extending, though peaceful influences, the bless ings of liberty, civilization, and religion, are des tined to triumph over the barbarism and supersti tion of the millions of the world. And shall such a people refuse to lay hold upon their destiny, and act upon the high mission to which it is called? A mission so full of" hope, though so laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as the jicacefiil arbiter of its destiny. The Sentinel will, therefore, advocate a bold and earnest foreign jto/icy. such as the condition ol the country demands; but it will advocate it under the flag of the country?nowhere else. Its foreign policy must be consistent with the spotless honor und unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at home and abroad, and to be great in the eyes of the world, it must ask for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing that is wrong. It must l>e liberal and magnanimous to the rights of others, and firm and immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in tine, be true to its own interests, rights, and honor?it cannot then be false to those of other nations. Such, then, is the chart by which we shall be guided. Independent nnd free, we shall endeavor to be honest nnd truthful. The true friends ot democratic, principles we shall cordially support und defend. Its enemies in the field or in ambush we shall oppose, and on all proper occasions de nounce. . To our future brethren of the press we extend the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the rival of no press of its own party?the personal enemy of none of the other. The present Democratic Administration has o?r best wishes for its success in the establishment ol the great principles upon which it came into power; * mi !?* labors to attain such nn end it will find the Sentinel its friend nnd coadjutor.

CITY OF WASHINGTON, SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 8, 1853. ^ijuntianal. Columbian College, Washington, L>. C. I^he collegiate year of litis institution will here . after consist of one continuous session, begin ning on the last Wednesday in September, anil closing on the lust Wednesday in June, on which day the annual commencement for conferring de grees will be held. The ensuing session will open on the 2t?fh ol the present month. The charges ure : * l-'or tuition per sessiou of nine months, $40 00 Use of room, furniture, library, and at To those who do not Iwiird in college the charge for tuition is the same, and for the use of room, furniture, library, &.C., $25 per session. There is an admission fee of $10, and a small charge each session for contingencies. Fuel and lights are fur nished at cost, and washing at 37J cents per dozen. The necessary college expenses of a boarding stu dent will not exceed $1S0 or $190 per annum. All the bills are puyuble one half at the beginning, and the balance at the middle of the session. With a view of giving to the different depart ments of instruction a wider extension, and at the same time of memm# a public want by rendering the advantage of;tlie college available to a larger number und a more varied class of students, some important changes have been made in the order and arrangement of the students. A new course has been adopted, styled the Scientific Course, and the degree of Batchelor of Philosophy (B. P.) at tached to it. It will occupy about three years, and will embrace all the studies of the regular course for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, with the ex ecution of the ancient languages. This course will be specially adapted to those who wish to ob tain what is called a practical education, as the mathematical and scientific studies will have greater prominence than usual, parlicularlyin their application to the arts and business of lite. Those who may wish to become practical surveyors, en gineers, or agriculturists, will be enabled, with the advice of the faculty, to select their studies with special reference to those objects, and will receive the aid of lectures and illustrations. The doors of the College will also be opened to those who may wish, under its general regulations, to pursue any branch of study for any length of time. They may, untjer the direction of the faculty, select such sub jects us are suited to their views and objects in life, and, on examination, muy receive a regular certificate of their standing and proficiency in the same. The number of officers and instructors has lately been increased, and others will be added as the wants of the several departments may require. Measures are in progress for filling immediately the chair of chemistry, geology, mineralogy, and botany in a manner that will add greatly to the in terest .and profit of those studies. The preparatory department has l>een placed under careful and efficient management, in a build ing which has been handsomely fitted up for its reception. It has an able and experienced teacher, and is under the general supervision of the faculty. It will thus afford the best advantages for laying the foundation of a thorough classical and mathe matical education. Boarding pupils will be received under the im mediate care and direction of the principal, and at about the same expense as regular college stu dents. The building* have recently undergone thorough repnirs, and the grounds are being laid out and im proved in a manner that will add much to the con venience and attractiveness of its already beauti fttl situation. It is believed the College never presented so strong inducements as it now does to young men who desire to obtain a thorough and liberal educa tcndunce Board, (per week) no 00 2 25 tion. Sep 21. J.

[Concluded. J Thursday, 22d August. At 12 o'clock bailed and arrived at Fort Ontario. 24th. In the morning Hailed; in the evening the schooner lav-to, opposite Cataraoui or Frontenac, a small fort at the north aide of the entrance of the river St. Lawrence, about ninety miles from Fort Ontario. The French had their grand magazine of provisions here, from whence they supplied all their hack forts, it was taken by CoL Brad street, in 1557. We went on shore and walked about the fort, which is now deserted and in ruins. At night, came to an anchor in the river. 2Gth. Sailed down the river, which affords man)- beautiful prospects^ from the number of small islands that are in it At night, ran alongside a large rock and tied the schooner, which served instead of coming to anchor. Caught some fine fish. 27th. The wind being contrary we still kept fust to the rock. 28th. Set sail, and anchored. 29th. Arrived at Oswegachy, a small fort built for the protection of the provision which is sent there from Montreal, for the supply of the garrisons of Ontario, Niagara, Detroit, Ac. Oswegachy is one hundred and twehty miles from Fort Ontario, and ninety from the first entrance into the river St. Lawrence, from the lake. 30th. Left Oswegachy in a very small wooden canoe. Mr. Madden, who commanded at the fort, could get us no other. Two sav ages and a soldier of the fifteenth regiment were our conductors and guides, and miserable ones they turned out to be. Nine miles from Oswegachy is a small is land, on which is built Fort William Augustus, taken by General Amherst, in 1760. The gre nadiers of the whole army, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Massay, of the twenty seventh regiment, were ordered to storm the fort, as they had sustained a seige of three days ; luckily for both parties, the fort surren dered before they began the storm. Proceeded over some very bad rapids, some of them several miles in length. Our canoe, in passing one of these rapids, took in a consid erable quantity of water, and was turned round by the current. Got that night to St. Anjuste, about forty miles from Oswegachy, an Indian village of about forty houses. We lodged at the house of one Gordon, a Jesuit priest, who was very civil, and gave us some dried eels and eggs for supper, which was all he had in the house. As it was our custom always to rise very early when travelling, we were under some un easiness lest we should disturb the priest, but he assured us that he was up every morning at four o'clock. He came into our room the next morning at that honr; soon after we saw him upon his knees praying. ? We offered him some chocolate', which we had brought with us for breakfast, but he declined it, telling us he ate very little on Sunday. After thanking him for his civilities, we em barked in our vessel, and soon came to some terrible rapids, which we were iust going down, but luckily saw an Indian trader, who assured us that if we attempted to go down in so small a canoe, we might depend upon being east awav; and if that had been the case, every man of us would certainly have been drowned ; the stream ran so violently, that swimming would have availed us nothing. 1 he only chance we had was to go ashore, unload our boat, and carry every thing on board to a point about a quarter of a mile distant, which we did, and the trader, with several sav ages he had with him, assisted in dragging our canoe over the rocks, down to that point, by a long rope fixed to her head. After giving him two piastres for his civility, we re-embarked and proceeded over some disagreeable rapids (but not near so bad as those just mentioned) to the Cedars, where we lay that night What is called the Cedars is a range of French settlemeuts, about three or four miles long ; the only houses we have seen since we left Cata ragni, except Oswegachi, Fort Willianr Augus tus, and St. Anjuste, which is about one hun dred and forty miles. The man at the house where we lay assured us that what the trader had told us was very true, for had we but gone twenty yards further than where we landed, the consequences must inevitably have been fatal. * The behaviour of the poor French inhabit ants of this part of the world is extremely dif ferent from what is met with in any of the British settlements in America; the Frenchmen affable, civil, and always ready to do anything in their ]>ower to oblige. On the contrary, a Briton, piquing himself on his liberty, (wbieh in my opinion is nothing more than an insub stantial vision, and, like the colors in a prism, I entirely deceptive,) will treat you with hauti ness and effrontery, and though you pay hiin liberally for everything you have of him, thinks vou are more obliged to him than he to you. It is said that the good behavior of these poor Frenchmen is owing to their having been ruled with a rod of iron when this country was in the hands of its former masters; it is very proba ble. I am sorry that so good an effect should be produced by so had a cause. Monday, 1st September. Left the Cedars on horseback, and had all our baggage carried in a cart three leagues. This was absolutely ne cessary, as there were three or four very bad rapids, dow n which our canoe could not go, otherwise than very light. We got the man of the house where we lay (whose business it is) to pilot her down. Embarked; got to La Chine .about two o'clock. After dinner rode nine miles to Montreal, which was no small comfort to us after all our difficulties. The town of Montreal stands upon an island oi" the same name; it is lorty miles long and fifVen broad, surrounded by branches of the river St. Lawreuce. Saw the troops reviewed by Miyor-General Burton, commander-in-chief in the northern district. The soldiers looked and performed their exercise well; afterward a cold collation um'cr a tent; French ladies there, very agree able ?nd chatty; Kaglish country dances on the grass. Madame Landrieve my partner; the pret tiest wo?uan and the best daneer in the set. 1th. Sailed on board a sloop with a fair wind for Quebec ; got seventy miles. The pilot, afraid to sail in the night on account of the rocks, anchored. Breakfasted with Col. Massey of the Twenty Seventh Regiment at Troia Kivieres, a town ninety miles frcvu Montreal, *o called from the river St. Manrien having three mouths near it. About one hundred and fifty houses. Wind still contrary; lay here ; no wind in the morning; beat down with the tide thirty roilofl; went on short), rode by the banks of the river to Quebec in aiachines called callaehes, nn humble imitation of a buggy, or one-horse I * J'ntupliUt publithad in York in 184# chaise, though much inferior; very little better than a cart. 7th. Arrived at Quebec, the capital of Can ada, a fine situation ou the river St. Lawrence, one hundred and eighty miles from Montreal* the finest river 1 ever saw, the banks on each side entirely cleared from Montreal to Quebec; as thickly built to appearance tin the sides of the Thames from London to Richmond: The north side of the river looks like one straggling village for upward of one hundred miles. Eighteen leagues from Montreal is a broad part of the river St. Lawrence, which is called lake St. Pierre. This Jake is nine leagues long, and in some parts three, four, and five leagues broad. There are seven hundred houses and two nunneries in Quebec; one about two miles from the town, called the General Hospital. The nuns here are chiefly employed in curing the sick. Each nunnery has between thirty or forty nuns. Saw the famous plains of Abraham, where General Wolfe was killed, 13th September, 1759. Inspired with courage by riding over the field of battle; wished to be a soldier. At night grew prudent, and altered my opinion by thinking of FallatafFs honor. Wolfe's body buried in Westminster Abbey. No monument or obelisk to his memory here. Scandalous! Rode eight miles by the banks of the St. Lawrence to the Falls of Montmorency, one hundred and fifty feet perpendicular, twenty yards broad; very curious. - Remains of the Frunch entrenchments all along the side of the river; fine scene lor a contemplative military man. Saw the Falls of the-Chaudiere River, about eighty feet hijrh. Nine miles from Quebec. Went to the Isle of Orleans, where the English first landed in Canada. Went to Point Levy. The Island of Orleans is fifteen leagues long; the river St. Lawrence on each side of it. Great civilities received from Major Brown, of the twenty eighth regiment. The officers of the twenty eighth ano forty-fourth regiments very civil to us. The cold is so intense at Quebec, that all the meat and poultry which is used during the winter is killed in the beginning of December, and kept frozen till the beginning of April. If the. meaf is frozen immediately after it is killed, it will be as tough when thawed at the end of three or four months as the day it was killed. If it is kept four or five davs, till it is grown tender before it is frozen, it will be in the same state when thawed, aud suffers not the least degree of putrefaction by being kept any length of time -frozen. Frozen meat is cut with an axe; will fly into chips, like a block of ice. The neatest and most frugal method of cutting frozen meat is with a saw; the saw-dust makes excellent soup. Milk is brought to market frozen in bags. Quebee was terribly shattered during the siege by the English batteries on Point Levy, which is on the other side of the river, oppo site to the town; the river is eleven hundred vards across here. There are about seven hundred houses in Quebec. Met Lord Adam Gordon here, just come from Niagara. Went to Lorette, an Indian village about eight miles from Quebec. Saw the Indians at mass, and heard them sing Psalms tolerably Athanase, who was commander-in-chief of the Indians who defeated General Braddock in A very sensible fellow. Al>ont one hundred fighting men in this town. Left Quebec. Next day got to Trois Ri vieres ; spent a day with Cot. Massey. Fine fields of wheat and other grain between Quebec and Montreal. The stages between these towns are: St. Foix, Carrouge, St. Angtistin, Point aux Trem bles, Jackquatier, Cape Sante, De Chambault, Bas Grondines, Haut Grondines, St. Ann, Ba tiscan, Champlain, Champlain Haut, C'aj>e Madelain, Trois Rivieres, Point du Lac, Ma shish, Riviere Peloup, Maskenonge, Bertie, Doutrav, Yalletree, St. Snlpice, Arpentini, Long Point, Point anx Trembles, and then to Montreal; altogether about one hundred and eighty miles. Rode ten miles up the river St. Lawrence, and crossed over to Cocknewaga, an Indian village. About two hundred fighting men here ; fine, strong-looking fello\vs. Went with General Burton to the top of Mount Royal, about four miles from Montreal, which takes its name from the mountain. Frequent tea drinking aud dancing with the French ladies; some of them pretty, others try to make themselves so by paint. In the time of the French government of Canada, no ladies .but such as were of the noblesse were suffered to wear ribbands or aigrettes in their hair; this custom is abolished now, and it is as common here to see worsen of all sorts l>edecked with flowers and ribbands in their hair as in Sonth Carolina, the country of ponipoons. Noblesse does not imply being related to a nobleman onlv, but likewise to an officer. If a woman's fourth or fifth cousin happened to be married to an officer, she becarnc immediately ennobled, and was suffered to decorate herself with a rib band. It is a great modification to these ladies that now every creature may ornament her hair as she pleases. Among the men, none but those of the no blesse were allowed#to ride with snddlcs. I experienced the bud effects of this, having been thumped upon a blanket. Went with Lord Adam, General Burton, and several officers to Seneville, the end of the island of Montreal, thirty miles from the town ; crossed the Ottowa river, about seven miles to Canisndaga, an Indian town. About three hundred warriors in it, very formidable looking fellows. Saw them in chapel at prayers, kept in the greatest order: the chapel a very good building, ornamented within with scripture pictures. A fine altar-piece, gilt. All these Indians educated in the lloman Catholic religion, some of them great bigots. Had a very elegant supper given us by Mon sieur Montgolphie, the head of the St. Sulpi cian priests here, who have the management of these Indiau8. Monsieur St. Luke La Come, a Croix de St. Louis, the French partisan, was with us. Next morning walked about three miles to the top of Mount Calve re. Four little chapels upon the ascent of the hill, about five hundred yards from each other, and three nt the top. Paintings in each of the sufferings of Christ. Fine prospect here, of the Island of Mon treal, and of the rivers Ottowa and St. Law rence. The St. Lawrence is navigable for large ves sels, up to Montreal, one hundred and seventy leagues from Anticosti, an island in its mouth. Great plenty of fish in it, particularly salmon, which is as good as any in Kngland. Canada contains one hundred thousand in habitants, exclusive of the troops in it. Passed my time very agreeably with Col. Massev, who commanded, Captain John Max well, Captain William Prescott, both of the fif teenth, and several other officers whom f had been acquainted with l>efore. lGth. Left Montreal; crossed the ferry at WASHINGTON SENTINEL TERMS OF ADVERTISING. One square (ten lines) 1 insertion *0 ? .< 2 " 74 (i U U 3 M . . . 1 00 ? ? ?? 1 week 2 (Kl ?

Left St John's with seven stout (.ana dians U> row us over Lake Chanvplaia. Met 3ir Henry More, governor of New York,.Lieut. Col Irving, president of the council at Quebec, Lient. Col. Fteid, of the forty-second regiment, Philip Schuyler, of Albany, and two or three surveyors, who were taking observations to iiud out the forty-fifth degree of north latitude, which is the settled boundary line between the provinces of New York and Canada. By their observations at W indmill Koint, (twenty-five miles to the southward of St John s) they thought the line must be about three miles nearer to Montreal. ? Lay that night in our batteaux upon the Lake: run the boat aground, and rented our Canadians for three or four hours. At break of day proceeded ; rowed hard all day against a contrary wind. Encumped on the ?B*t a of the Lake, within fifteen miles of Crown Point . n . 19th. Got to the fort, dined with Captain Hamilton of UiC fifteenth. The fort at Crown I'oint surprisingly decayed since last year; bunt of wood at the expense of ?50,000, when they were obliged to blow up fine lime-stone to make a foundation, which would have answered both the purposes of stone and mortar. 1 he tort extremely beautiful to the eye, yet no great credit to Col. Dyers, the engineer who built it Went in the "afternoon sixteen miles to li conderoga. 20th. Got a fresh batteau, and with our Canadians crossed Lake George, thirty-six miles. . , . Captain Lieut. Rogers, of the seventeenth, who commanded at Fort Ontario wh?n we were on our way to Niagara, was remove o this fort. It is a great hardship to those offi cers, who have but little interest, that they are bandied about from one post to another, at the arbitrary will of the commander-in-chief, while others Iiave leave to stay at New York, go to England, and do what they please. The ex itense and inconvenience or moving hundreds of miles from one fort to another, cannot be conceived but by thoso who have travelled over this country, and must be severely ielt by the poor subalterns. , . . 21st. Rode fourteen miles on^liorseback to Fort Edward, which is now abandoned by the troops. A settler still lived here, and with him we dined. Got fourteen miles that night to Saratoga. 22d. Breakfasted at Stillwater,jour teen miles from Saratoga. Crossed London n Ferry, twelve miles, and dined at the Dutch Ferry-house. At night got to Schenectady, fourteen miles. 23d. Dined ? Schenectady. In the afternoon rode to Albany, eighteen miles 24th. At nijrht went on board an Al bany sloop. 28th. In the morning arrived at New Y'ork. kruro the VVavsrly Msgiuine. jA Revolutionary Anecdote. As every little story of the old revolutionary times is interesting to an American, I thought perhaps the following short anecdotes of the "times that tried men's souls, might be ac ceptable to your readers. I can vouch for the truth of themT as I had them from the hps of an intimate friend of the family, and have my self seen one of the ladies. In the vear 17?, Mr. H.'s family lived in a neat little house on the Hudson. It was in a very lonely situation, there not being a sin gle human habitation for miles around. Mr. H of course, joined the continental army soon after the war hroke out as the country required every arm for lier support.. So, Mrs. rl. ana her daughter, who was, at tlw time of my nar ration, about twelve or thirteen years of age, were left alone, and, for a long time, entirely unprotected. They were often surprised and annoyed by visits from the British soldiery, and one occasion in particular I shall proceed to relate. The mother and daughter were, one evening, quietly enjoying their simple meal, when they were startled" by a loud knocking at the door. Mrs. 1L peeped out ui' a side window, and dis covered her visitors were a troop of lJritish, who, she had no doul hud come for the pur pose of plundering them. There were some articles of considerable value in the house; these she did-not think of; but there was one thing she valued extremely, and this she was determined to save from the marauders. It was a lar.r f?*fhrr M, which had been in her family for a very long time. In an instant she barred the door, caught up the bed and made for the top of the house. There was aJudder placed for the purpose of ascending to the roof. She qnicklv scampered up thin, hut when nbont half way through the guttle, she bcuig a "woman of weight," stuck fast! The soldiers had become excited, and the next moment down came the door with a great crash. Imagine her feelings ! She was extricated with consid erable difficulty by the soldiers, and then they at once commenced their plundering. As it happened, some tune before this, Mrs. H. had received from a relation, an officer in the British army, his portrait in oil?a most superb picture, which had hung ?n her parlor. The soldiers very near turned everything upside down, when the captain bf the troop, happen in<r to cast his eyes upwards, descried the Die wo, Htatted, and a.W Mr.,. II. who tW painting was intended to represent He was told by Mrs. U. that it was Colonel Y , of the British army, a relation of hers, whom she held in hich esteem. The captain turned around, motioned his soldiers to stop their depredations and then politely lagged Mrs. H. s pardon, said that he was very sorrv for the intrusion ; and in less time than I take to tell it the house was cleared of the disagreeable visitors. Ihus, from I simply hav ing a portrait of a British oflicer^on her walls, Mrs. H. was spared trom being robbed of everything she had in the world. Gen. Washington for some time lived at the house of Mrs. H ; and her daughter, who was extrenielv anxious to see him, tried ber , | but could not get a glimpse of him. ln lbo" davs there were no servants, at least among the ! farmers in the United States; the matrons and 1 daughter* ,h%h? wt?Vh.d , (O. for those good old times !) Miss H. had 1 been sweeping and dusting the apartment thai Washington occupied one morning, and was i just going out when he entered; she was com pletelv tuken by surprise: ho Htoopetl ?n<t iiW her! From any one else, this, probably, would have been taken as an insult; but fre? Washington, no, no! his character was , known! he touch venerated and towd IV,r thai. This. lady was never the<c and the like anecdotes, especially the last one. She considered it was something evcrv^ body could not say, tbm M othmyhmJruxed her.
