Personal appearance and character of all the fretiaenls of the Untied State. BY EDWIN WILLIAMS. WASHINGTON General Washington, (says Judge Ma tihall.) was rather above the common size, his frame was robust, and his constitution vigor ous capable of enduring great fatigue, and requiting a considerable degree of exercise for the preservation of his health. Hi ex terior eieated in the beholder the idea of strength, united with manly gracefulness. His mantiers weie rather rese ved than free, though they pnrtook nothing of that dry ness and sternness which accompany reserve when carried to an extreme ; and, on all proper occasions, he could relax sufficiently to how how highly he was gratified by Ihe charms of cotivesationatid lhe pleasure of society. His pei sou and whole deportment exhibited au unaffected and (indescribable dignity, unmingled with haughtiness, of which who approached him were sensible; and ihe attachment of those who possessed his fiiend.ship and eitjyed bis intimacy, was ar dent, but always respectful. His temper was humane, benevolent, and ronciliatoiy ; but there was a quickness in his sensibility lo anything appaiently offen- z ' i i i . sivr, vwiii-u experience nau laugni mm to watch and to coircct. In the management of his private affairs he exhibited au exact yet liberal economy. His hinds were not prodigally wasted on capricious and ill-examiued schemes, nor refused lo beneficial, though costly, improve ments. They remained, therefore, compe tent to lhat extensive establishment which bi reputation added to au hospitable temper, had, in some measure, imposed upon him, audio those donations which real distress has a tight to claim f'oin opulence. In speculation he was a real republican, devoted to Ihe oustilu'iou of his country, and to that sy.stem ot equal poluical itghls on which it is loundcd. Ileul hbeity, he thought, was to bo preserved only bv preserving the authority of the Ijwjj, and maintaining the energy of the government. There have been, (says Colonel Kuapp,) p-pulur men, who w ere great in iheir day aud generation, but whoso limie soon pulsed away. If is not so with the fame of Vaf,h itiilton it grows blighter by years. The writings ol Washington, (a porlioti only of which comprise eleven octavo volumes,) show thiit he had a clear, lucid mind, and will be read w ith pleasure for ages to come. JOHN ADAMS. Mr Adams was of middle stature, and full person, aud, when elected President, he was a most popular statesman. I J is Countenance beamed with intelligence and moral, as well as phy.-iciil, courage. His walk was firm aud dignified lo a late period of his life. His manner was slow and deliberate, unless he was excited, and when this happened, he ex ptessed himself with great energy. He wai ever a man of lhe purest morals, and is said lo Iwive been a fiun believer iti Christianity, not fiom habit and example, but from diligent investigation of its proofs. To use the wold of a political fiieud of his, (Mr Suliivan,) "He bad au uncompromis ing regaid for his own opinion, aud seemed lo have supposed that his opinion could not be corected by those of other men, uor bel leied by comparison. It is not improbable that Mr Adams was impatient in finding how much mote the easily under.-tood services of military men we e appreciated, than were the secluded, though no less important ones, of diplomatic agency and cabinet council. So made up from uatutal propensities and from the ciieumstaures of his life. Air Adams came to the Presidency at the time when mote foibearance and discretion were requir ed than he is supposed to have had. He seems to have bee u deficient in the rare ex cellence of attempting to see himself as oth ers saw him; and he ventured to act as though every body saw as he saw himself. He con sidered only what was right iu his own view, and that was lo be carried by main foice, whatever were the obstacles." But whatever m;j be the judgment of pos terity as to his met its as a ruler, there cau be no question on the subject of his general character, nor of his penetrating mind, his pnliiotism, aud his devotion to what he con sidered the true interests of his couuuy. JEFFEKSON. Mr Jefferson was beyond the ordinary dimensions, being upwards of six feet two in ches in height, thin, but well formed, erect iu his caniage, aud imposing in bis appearance. His complex ioo was fair, his""hair, originally red, became white aud silvery in old age, his eyes were light blue, epaikling with intelli gence, and beaming with philanthropy ; his nose was large, his forehead broad, and his whole counletiance iudicated great sensibility and profound thought. His manneis were simple aud polished, yet dignified, and all who approached him were rendered pet fee tly at ease, both by his republican habits and his genuine politeness. His disposition being cheerful, his conversation was lively aud en thusiastic, remarkable for the purity of bis colloquial diction, and the cored cess of bis phraseology. He disliked form and parade, and his dress was remarkably plain, aud often slovenly. -Benevolence and liberality were prominent traits of bis disposition. To his slave he was au indulgent master. As a neighbor, he was much esteemed for his lib erality and friendly offices. As a friend, be was ardent, unchangeable ; and, as a host, the munificence of hospitality was carried to tne excess of self-impoverishment. He pos sessed great fortitude of mind, and his com mand ff temper was such that he was never in n passion. As a man of letters and a votary of science, he acquired high distinction. In the classics, aud iu several European languages, as well as mathematics, he attained a proficiency not common to American students. With regard to bis political opinions, and his character a a statesman, his countrymen have widely differed .in their estimates. By some persons he has been considered as one of the must pure, amiable, dignified, wise, and patriotic of men. By others he has been considered as remarkably defective in the qualities which dignify and adorn human life, and as one of the most wrong headed states men that ever lived. Posterity will judge which of these opinions is right. His writ ings, which agreeably lo directions left by him, have been published since his death, af ford ample materials forjudging of his char acter. 1 hey consist of lour volumes octavo, ol correspondence, una, etc. lhe religious opiuious of Mr Jefferson were peculiar and eccentric. His writings show that he was a-free thiuker, with a prefer ence for some of the doctrines of Uuitaiiau- istn. In a letter to a friend, he says "I have to tbatik you for your pamphlets on the sub ject of Unitarian ism, and to express my grati fication with your efforts for the revival of primitive Christianity in your quarter. I confidently expect lhat the present generation will see Uu it a nan ism become the general religiou of the United States.' MADISON. Mr Madison was of small stature and rather portly. He had a calm expiession, penetrat ing blue eyes, and was slow and grave i:i his peech. At the close ot his Presidency he seemed lo be care worn, with an appearance of more advanced ajie thaii was lhe fact. He was bald on the crown of his bead, always wore his head powdered, and generally dres sed in black. His manner was modest aud retiring, hut in conversation be was pleasing aud instructive, having a mind well stored wilh the treasures of learning, aud being par- liculaily familiar wilh the political world. On his accession to Ihe Pieidency, he resloied the custom of levees al Iho . presidential man sion, which had beeti abolished by Mr Jeffer son. It was on lhe occasion of these levees lhat his accomplished lady, by her polite and attractive attentions and manners, shone with peculiar lustre. Mr Madison was foud of society, ubhough he bad travelled but little, never having visited foreign countries, or seen much of the people and country over which he presided. When a member of deliberate bodies, Mr Madison was au able debater, having acquir ed self-confidence by slow degrees. As a writer, he has few equals among American statesmen, and the Myle of his public docu ments and his correspondence has always beeti much admiied. He was, at the. lime of his death, the last surviving siguer of the Con stitution; and ihe patl he bore iu framing that instrument, his subsequent advocacy of it by his writings, wilh his adherence lo its" provi sions, obtained for hiui the title of "Father of the Constitution. ' MONROE. Mr Monroe was tall and well formed, be ing six feet iu stature, with light complexion aud blue eyes. His countenance bad uo ju dications of superior intellect, but an honesty and firmness of purpose which commanded respect, aud gained favor aud friendship. He was laborious and industrious, and doubtless compensated, iu some degree, by diligence, for slowness of thought and want of imagina tion. His taleuls, however, were respectable, and he was a fine specimen of the old school Virginia geuiiemen generous, hospitable, aud devoted to bis country, which he did not hesitate to serve to the utmost of his ability, through a long life, and his career was highly honorable, useful and worthy of admiration. The administration of Mr Monroe was eminently prosperous aud advantageous to the nation. Al no petiod iu our history has party spirit been so much nubdued, aud the attention of our uatioual. legiUture more ex clusively devoted lo objects of public benefit. Though, iu the course of his public life, Mr Monroe had received from the public treasury, for his services, $385,000, ho retired from office deeply ia debt. He was, how ever, relieved at lat by the adjustment, by Congress, of his claims founded chiefly ou lhe disbursements made duriug lhe war. JOHN QU1NCT ADAMS. Mr Adams - is ' of middle stature ; his eyes dark and piercing, bis countenance pleasing and beaming with intelligence ; his manners rather reserved and distant. He has always led the most active life and enjoyed good health, aud accustomed from his youth to habits of early rising and coustaot impiove ment of his mind in literary and scientific knowledge, he i at this day considered ouo of the most (if not the most,) accomplished scholars in America. The private character of Mr Adams has always been above reproach, iu his inter course ith his fellow men, and in all the various duties of a long life. Without any un common professions be has uniformly frhuwn a great respect for the christian reli gion, and, like his father, giveu a preference to the Unitarian chur:h. In Match, ,1820, Mr Adams retired to pri vate life, (from the Presidency,) carrying with him the eoteem of bis political friend, aud tbo respect of his opponents, who gen erally gave him the credit of good iutuii.i,, however they might have differed from him in his views of public policy. But the people of his own immediate neighborhood were not willing to allow him to remain long ia retirement. In 1S30 he was elected to represent the district in which he resided, in the Congress of the United States, aud the following year, namely, in December, IS3I, he took his scat iu ibe House of Representatives, at Washington city, being then iu the 65th year of his age, and having already passed about fo'ly years in the public service. In the National Le gislature he has taken the stand to which eminent talents aud distinguished services fully entitled him. The confidence of bis constituents has been manifested by seven re-elections to the House of which he has now been a member 4 years. Mr Adams has since been re-elected for auotber term, Nov. 846. He has taken an active part in debate on nearly every topic of public iuteiest, aud his speeches have been frequently marked with the most fervid eloquence, and wilh the stem aud peculiar independence which has charac terized his whole life. The subject of this memoir is now iu his eightieth yea, and although his eye is dim, and his natural forco somewhat abated, " he was, at the session of Congress, still found at his post in the public servier, where, like the Earl of Chatham, it maybe expected his mor tal career will finally close. JACKSON. The personal appearance and private char acter of General Jackson are thus described by his friend and biographer, Mr Eaton, previous to his election to the Presidency : 4 In the person of Jackson is perceived nothing- of the robust and elegant. He is six feet and an inch bih, remarkably straight and spare, and weighs not more tbatr one hundred and forty-five pounds. His conformation appears to disqualify him for hardships; yet accustomed to it Irom early life, few are capable of enduring latigue to the same extent, or with less injury. His dark blue eyes, with brows arched and slight ly projecting, possess a marked expression; but when from any cause excited, they spar kle with peculiar lustre and penetration. In bis manners be is pleasing in bis address commanding; whil? bis countenance, mark ed with firmness, and decision, beams with a strength and intelligence that strikes at firjt sight. In his deportment there is , nothing repulsive. Easy, affable, and lamiliar, he is open and accessible to all. Influenced by the belief that merit ' should constitute the only difference in men, his attention is equal ly bestowed on honest poverty as on titled consequence. His moral character is wiih out reproach, and by those who know him most intimately, he is most esteemed. Be nevolence in him is a prominent virtue. He was never known to pass distress without seeking to assist and relieve it. The violence of political strife will long confuse men's judgment of the character and abilities of General Jackson ; but all will accord to him the praise of great firmness, energy, decision, and disinterestedness ; of remarkable miliitary skill, aud ardent patri otism. W ith regard to bis qualifications and services as a statesman, bis eounirymen have been and are divided in opinion. It is per haps not yet time to speak decisively on this point, but it must be left for the impartial verdict of posterity. VAN BUR EN. The following notice of the person and character of Mr Van Buren, is from bis life, by professor Holland ; written, of cour.e, wilh all the partiality of friendship : "In personal appearance, Mr Van Buren is about the middle size ; bis form is erect, (aud formerly slender, but now inclining to corpulence,) and is said to be capable of great endurance. His hair and eyes are light, his features animated and expressive, especi-illy the eye which is indicative of quick 3ppre bensinn and close observation ; his forehead exhibits in its depth and expansion, the marks of great intellectual .power. The physiog nomist would accord to him penetration, quickness of apprehension and benevolence of disposition. The phrenologist would add unusual reflective faculties, firmness and caution.' The private character of Mr Van Buren is above all censure or suspicion. In the re lation of father and son, of husband, brother, and friend, he has also displayed those ex cellencies of character and leelin"; which adorn human nature. Extending our view to the large circle of his personal friends, rarely has any man won a stronger bold up on the confidence and affection of those with whom he has been connected. The pu'ily of his motives, his integrity of character, and the steadiness of bis attachment, have always retained for him the warm affection of many even amon the rank of his political oppo nenls. The ease and frankness of his manners, his felicitous powers of conversation, and the general amiableness of his feelings, ren der him the ornament of the social circle. Uniting in his character, firmness and for bear uce, habitual self respect and a delicate regard for the feelings of others, neither the perplexities of legal practice nor. the cares of public life, nor the annoyance of party strife, have ever been able, to disturb the serenity of his temper, or to derange for a moment the equanimity of his deportment. He has, with equal propriety, mingled in the free intercourse of private life, and sustained the dignity of official station-" (.Volnme 8 Number 434 The reat event of Mr Van Bureu's ad ministration, (says a writer in the Democra tic lievicw,) by which it will hereafter be known and designated, is the divorce of bank and slate, in the fiscal affairs of the lederal government, and the return, after hall a century of deviation, to the original design of the constitution. I he fcanie writer informs us that Mr Van Buren remarked to a friend, previous to wri ting his message recommending the indepen dent treasury Ve cannot know howr the immediate convulsion may result, but the people will at all events, eventually come right, and posterity will at least do me jus tice, tie the present issue lor good or evil, it is for posterity that I will write this mes sage. IIAIUUSON. Genera! Harrison was tall and slender Although he never had the apperance of pes- sessmg robust constitution; yet, sucn nau been the effect of habitual activity and tem perance, that few men of his age enjoyed so much bodily vigor. He had a fine dark eye, remarkable for his keenness, fire intelligence. and his face was strongly expressive of the vivacity of his mind and the benevolence of his character. The most remarkable traits of Gen. Har rison's character, and those by which he was listinguished throughout his whole career, were his disinterestedness, his regard for the rights and comforts of others, his generous disposition, his mild and forbearing temper, and his plain easy and unostentatious manner. He had a most intimate knowledge of the history and foreign and domestic policy of the United Slates, and from the moderation of his political views aud feelings as a party man, although firm, frank, and consistent, he was well calculated for the high station to which he was elevated, and which it is be lieved he would have filled with ability, and to ihe satisfaction of the public, during his presidential term, had his life been spared.- His talents, although!, perhaps not of Ihe highest order, were very respectable, and unittd wilh an accurate knowledge of man kind, enabled him to acquit himself well in the various public stations to, which he was called, lie was n bold and eloquent or:itor ; a nl be has left on record numerous evidence of his literary acquirements, besides his correspondence and public papers. TYI.EB. Mr Tyler is rafh'cr tall and thin, with light comptexiou, blue eyes and prominent features. His manners are plain and affable, and iu private life he is amiable, hospitable aud cour teous. His errors as a politician arc ascrib ed, by some, lo a want of judgment, to an in ordinate vanity; and the influence of bad ad vice; to which may be added, extreme ob stinacy iu persisting in opinions onco form ed without regard lo consequences. There cau be no doubt that Mr Tyler mi totik his position to act with the whig party, and iu accepting Iheir nomination for one of the highest offices i u the nation, which, by the dispensation of Providence, placed him iu the Presidential chair, clothed with the power aud patronage ff lhat high elation. That the whig also acted without duo reflec tion, iu bis nomination, is alike evident; and from those I wo causes flowed lhe cousequenco which resulted on ihe one side in the embar rassment, difficulties and lotnl loss of populari ty of the President wilh both tbu great par ties of ihe counir); and on the other side, bilter disappointment ou the part of the whig. POLK. Pi evident Polk is of middle stature, with a full angular brow, aud a remarkable quick aud pcnelratiug eye. The expression ofhis countenance is grave, but its serious cast is often relieved by a (reculiar pleasaui smile, indicative of the amenity of his disposition. The amiable character ofhis private life, which has ever beeu upight and pure, secures to him ibe esteem and friendship of all who have the advantage of his acquaintance. rew public men have pursued a firmer or noe consistent course than Mr Polk, in ad hering to the democratic parly iu every vicissitude.

Jackson for the presidency, be lucurrcd the hazard f losing his popularity throughout the Stale, by avowing his unalterable purposo not to separate fiom lhe great body of the democratic party in lhe presidential election. He therefore became identified with the friends of Mr Van Bui en iu Teunessee in 1S36, where Jude Wbite received the vote of the Stale by a popular majority of over nine thou sand. ' Mr Polk entered upon thktotmv career of politics in 1823, when be was rhocn to re present his county iu the Slate legislature.
