Tho aubjoincd letter is taken from tho lout f.uh lnhed volume (the 10th recently ifaued) of Spnrkt' Life and corrcapondenco of Waahington. It nan wiltr-n to Mtaa Harriet Washington, hi orphan niece, who had reaided for pomo time in his family, and to whom he continued to oxtend his care and aid. She then reaided with some of other relatives at Ftcdrickaburg. It is dated Philadelphia, 30th Oct., 1791: Dear Harriet : I received your letter of the 21st inetant, and shall always bo glad to hear from you. When my buaineia will permit, inclination will not be wanting in mo to acknowledge tho re ceipt of your letter; and this I shall do more cheerfully, as it will afiurd mc opportunities at thoao times, of giving you such occasional advice, a your situalinna may require. At present I could plead a better excuse for curtailing my letter to you, thau you had for ahortening yours to me, having a multitude of oc cupations before roe.whilo you hac nothing to do; consequently you might with as inurh convenience to yourself hae sat down to write your letter an letter hour or two or even a day soonor as have delayed j It until your cousin was on mc point oi senumg to the post office. 1 make this remark for no oth er reason, than to ahow it is better to offer no ox- r,ue thin a bad one, if at any time you ahoulJ hap pen to fall into an error. Occupied as any time now is, and must be dur ing the sitting ofCongreai, I ncverthcloia will en deavor to inculcate upon your mind the delicacy and danscr of that period, to which you aro now arrived under peculiar circumatanccs. You arc jus', entering into the ttato of woman, without the watchful eye of a mother to admonish, or the pro tecting aid of a father to advise and defend you; : ou may not be sensible, that you are at this mo ment about to be a tarn pod with that character, which will adhere to you through life; the conic quencea of uhich jou have not perhapa attended to, but be assured it is of the utmoit importance that you should. Your cousins, with whom you live, are well qualified to git e yc-u advice; and I am sure they will if you are disposed to receive it. But if you are duobliging, clf-wil!od, and untowsrdly, it la hardly to be cjpectc-d that they will cngago ihemKlrc in unpleasant disputes with you, especially Fanny, whose mild and placid temper ill not permit her to exceed the limits of wholesome admonition or gentle rebuke. Thiult then, to what dangers a giddy girl of fifteen or aiiteen must be eipoaej in circumitaRces like these. To be under little or no control may be p!ea.it!Z to a mind that doe not tefiecl.but this pleasure cannot be of !ong duration, and reaaon.too late perhapt. may convince jou of toe o!l ofj derod necesttry, Iiw lianas crooo, aa in. pipe, rntipending time.

Heboid us quietly sottlod in a pretty farm-house, on the burdcrs of it placid lake. My longing for years i gralilicd I am far from titics, and in the midst of profound retirement, and enjoy ing all the delights summer in tho country con bring. Formerly, when my father's business would allow of but a short visit to tho country, and that confined to tlio sca-tliore or faahionablc watering places, have I tighed fur some farm-house, or, hut in the forest, where I might indulge my passion fur nature to my heart's full bent I well remember the laugh of my parents when one day at dinner I npostophiecd tho vegetables and fruit, pitied their j present change, and pictured the pleasant gardens and orchards where thoy grow. "In tho country,'' I would say, "I can be perfectly content, for there all is peace and rational enjoyment." '.My dear child, you should not look forward to any particular spot or circumstance to form your happiness. You know your favorite llurns tays, it has its, 'ecat and centre in the breast.' llolicvc me, my daughter, the only method is to bo content with the situation, w hero you may chance tube placed, for if you look forward, you will do it nil your life, ob happiness will fly us you pursue. My good papa, I thought to myself, is like nil elderly persons, they exhaust cicry pleasure, and then tell ns thero is none left in tho world worth the Becking. That sanguine youth is tver antici pating future joy, whose shadowy form eludes their grasp, "It is all very well to say to," said I' "but I know better. There are countless stores of felicity from which I mean to draw, notwith standing ili" mi.'o wnrniiijjii or tno ciuera. Any one povessing intellect and heart cannot fail to be happy. Alas, I am not nn elderly pcrton, and even .now I see how futile was oil that reatcning. Hero is one dear wish of my heart gratified, and am I hap py ! Alas no, my heart and my intellects make my iiiihappincfs, had I neither I might still hope for peace. 10M. The house in which we board is a Dutch cottage, built many yearn, ago by an ancestor of the present possessor Myiiuort on cghton, who came front tl.c Dutch settlements, on the Mohawk. In front, the roof is shelving ; the mansion is painted red, edged with yellow. Tho fences, barns and outhouse arc all glowing with the same tasteful hue, so that it flashes out of the surround ing green, like a glorious garden of tulips or poin eye. Mrs. Von Veghton is a merry little woman who talks and snuffs and smokes through every thing sho may be about. She has two daughters, otic rather coarse lonking,but active and good hear ted, the other, Alida, is n graceful, ond delicate as if she had hcon brought up in city idleness, instead of spending her days as she does, in baking, and awoeping, and all other homely duties. The son, Herman, rises with the davvn, works hard all day, and after returning at night, instead of following his father's fabhinn of plunging immediately into bod, joins his siatcr Alida in reading for several hours, lie has thus stored his rnind with knowledge, which will bo of infinite uc to him during his courto through life.

"She is at the springs still, but will make a isit home ere she goes to town for the wintur." "To town !" said Mr. Von Veghton peevishly. 'Why cannot sho content herself in the country.

Heaven only knows how half of them live; there is scarcely ono of those who camo dashing nnd splashing up hero that can tiav thero debts.. whilu in tho ri.nriirt. are lioncst lie.arty laborers, none lile, nil engnged in agriculture or manufacturer" "Dear tno undo, do you think there is no one oc cupied in the city.

Koscvil smiled, and endeavored 13 turn tho con versation, ns ho saw his undo was on his favorite topic, the superiority of country over city life. Mr Von Veghton had been rathrr unfortunate in his specimens of the citizens, as, lnhg uonr a fuh ionnblo walcring-placo.hc was liable to see many of the dashing and reiklcss in modish life, and few of tho staid sober citizens. Too many of these aro to look with contempt on tho stvlc of living in tho country, and esteemed persons according to their rank and fnshion in society. Mr Von Veghton, fee ling himself not a whit inferior to llicc persons, in wealth, worth, or antiquity of fdinily, was not dis posed to permit thorn to assume superiority otcr him. Like many of us he had fallen iuo opposite extremes, and stoutly asserted tin", everybody and everything wcie on a higher scale in tho country than in the city. 1 7 f A. A warm sunny dav drove ns nil nu. of doors this morninr. Koscvil nnd Julm went to take a drive. Serena at her usual post, reading on the back porch under tho shade of honoysucklos and clematis.whiUt I escaped to wander at my will. Alone in tho woods! How nlcasant to sit on 5 fallen tree, nnd g37.o upon tho long vista's, liko Cathedral isles, across which nn occasional streak of sunshuw rovcala the bhades beyond. How so lemn is tho deep stillness, only tariod by the gen tle rustling of the summer breeze, as it '' naido thofuliage above, and piles us bright glimpses uf tho heavens ovor us.

How cruel thus remorslcasly to lacerate the heart of oiw so noble and so lot ing. What is tlteie worth liv ing for in tbu world ol chance and change, if it be i wl aflectiou. Oh tSe vJu of one loving heart ! It is worth counties mines of gold, and yet that preciout jewel, I have teck!ly thrown from me.

Greenville gracefully accepted nil that was of fered, mill his pinto was soon piled with fried hnlii mid oggs, greon corn, squash, suokntash, et ceteras, while tho glass tins filled with vliiegnr'd molasses, a favorite beverage in that part of the country. "Norche," said nur host to his wife, "you have often heard mc talk of tho troubles in this country when I una young, nnd remember I mentioned nu Indian, who wag called tho white man's friend. Young as I tvns, I lecollect Skcnando well, and this gentleman resembles him veiy much. Ifhe had not on our ilrt'si,l should liaic taken him for an Indian." "Dear mo !

Greenville stnrtcd from his chair, but I laid my hand imploringly on his aim, nnd he reseated him self, while nil was loo much engrossed with Mr Von Veghton to hood his movements, "1 well rcmuiubor tho bloody dnjs of Wyoming, mid, when all tlio country was truly a howling wil darncss,, for ruthless savages, aro muring mid hoo ting all it, seeking whom thoy tnig'it devour, und where Ualls'.on stands was a (Jpiiso forest." "Do tell," ejaculated Ilczckiah, the hired man. "Wo lived many miles from this, and n band of savages who hud been at tho burning of r-'.rhnharip camo past nur home, hilled mynioiher, robbuj and l.i.rnml ..i.r.l n.H'rlfll 1 Olf.

"Gracious mo !'' Only think ! hunt from all. "How do the critters look." "They nro not very black, something like n inula to; but their eyes, nn one can describe so jet bint k, so fiery. St. Nicholas defend mo!'' cried tho old man starting buck. Wo followed his fixed gnze, nnd behold the eyes of tho graceful Grceniillo g'aring on him, with the same fiery, ferocious expression ho had ihvciibed. In another moment, Tnyadnnaga was hounding uvor the door-yard, and had gained the woods. How I longed to I'u'.I'ju aud sooth liiu excited feel ings. "What a singular young man!" exclaimed Mr. Von Veghton, breathing morofico; "I could have sivorri 0110 of those savages wasbeforo tno. Ho cer tainly must have Indian blood in hi veins.', Itoscvi! saw my emotion, and by way of loading him fromjho subject ; asked him, "If hu had over seen Sir William Johnson' band, called Johutou s Greens.'' "Nu, but I havo teen my fathor grit his teeth with rngo when speaking of the traitors.

They ploughed the fields nrmed ; and schoolmoatorH the tamo time hesring their scholars their Ii-bsoiih, tho youngest being obliged to work In roturn for such instructions.'' i:jA. "So," said Julin, I hear frttm Serena you have repented of your coldness to year Indian chief and iiaiu concluded to take pity on lifm."
