It was about Ins lime lht;siriiig nl 1758, while on Ins way to Williamsburg that Wii-liinglnii wus first ntado aciiaiti teil Willi the young widow who was destini-d lo become his wife. The Colonel, in military undress, moun ted on a splendid charger, and atten ded by a single body servant, both the gift of the dying Ilraddock, as he lied from the fatnl field ofMo noiignhela, had just crossed Wil liam's Ferrry, over the J'umunltcy, a br-Mich of York river, when ho was mot by Mr Chainberlayne, a Virginia gentleman of the old seliool, who invited him to house Wash ington excused himself, on the ground of urgent business with the Governor. Hut tlm hospitable plan ter would take no denial, and at last succeeded in luruing the scale by promising to introduce him to a j oung and beautiful widow. The Colonel finally consented lo stop and dine nothing more. A short delay could be made up by haid I riding and pressing further into the I night. In demounting he nave Ins I li..rcu il.t.. ll... ln.t.t nf It.. in'ioi. nil" inn vnuiiji; ui 111a ruiviiiii 1 Uishop, will) explicit tiistrtii tintis to have htm at the door at a certain hour : giving hi arm to his guest, ' ihe hospitable plainer enteieil the ; liouvo mid introduced him tn hn, family.

The young widow was iiuhu.-wuj, luinuuitjj, tniv4 iucuo- 1 sod 01 a largo lornine. anu was, withal, the widow of a Colonul he.'irt, that would beat as calmly a- mid whisili g bullets and death and 1 aruago as in its peaceful sluinheis The lady was only ihreo months younger 1 1 1 a 1 1 he, and from the fust could not dguise her admiration ol tin youthful hero. On thenther hand, her society was so agreeable to Washington thin tor ihe fir-t time in Ins life lie forgot his own appoint ment. His servant IJUhop. punctu al to his orders, had the two horses saddled and bridled, standing ut the gate at the tune appointed Con trary to all military rules, and all the former experience, his master did not make his apcaraiu:o. Linger ing under tho sweet iuflueiico of tho beautiful young widow, tho time slipped unconsciously away. Al length, as the sun stooed behind tho western wildoiiiess, tho planter slopped forward and declared that it was contrary to the rules of m esmto to allow a guest to leave the house after sundown. Washington laughingly acknowledged that ho felt bound to submit to such whole soiuo legiilations, and was soon for getful of everything but tho fascin ating woman beside him. Other dreams than those of military glory visited lus pillow that night, and oth er liotics impelled him forward, as tho next morning he continued his journey to Williamsburg. On his return ho stopped again nt tho " White. House" of Ins friend, and surrendered at discretion to tho blooming widow. His MAHitunr.. Having now re turned to private life, ho consum mated Ins engagement with Mrs. Curtis, and 11 wedding was given January utli. 170", on a scalo com mensurate with the wealth and standing of tho parties, in keeping with the good old customs of tho titno. ! rum lar and near camo tho laced coats and powdered hair and long cues, till the hospitable man sion overflowed with tho wciltli and beauty and gayety of the colony. And a nnblo couple they were tho young Colonel six feet tluee inches 111 height, towering above nil around, and tho beautiful bride, radiant with happiness. The rafters of that huge mansion rang that night with mirth nnd gayety. The brido brought as dowry thirty thousand pounds ster ling, besides one third of largo laud ed estates. She had two children ; a son, six years old, and a daughter, four. To the former belonged one third of the estates left by his fath er, while the latter had the remain ing third, together with ten thousand pounds sterling This su oiled ington's fortune to nn enormous mount for those davs. Ho did not take Ins bride nnme- diately to Mount Vernon, but repair- ges of tins Almighty's ever open vot ed to Williamsburg and took his -eat ' utiio. Ills heart was iwirtnoil with as member of the Assembly. I)ur-uiw life as ho looktd upon Hie ing the session the spcaki'r was di- rinse') -written lent en of n lure, and reeled, by a vote of the House. " to I the breath ol heaven fanning Ins return thanks on behalf of the Col- olieek, gave it a naturul glow us un ony lo Colonel Washington, for the like tin- hectic llusli im ihe stead) distinguished military service he has shining star is to the lightning's tr ren.ti'red tho country." This the ratio Hush.

Washing ton, taken wholly by surprise, rose to reply, but could not stammer forth a single word. Out of this painful dilemma the witty speaker helped him a- generously as he had bellied htm into it. " Sit down, Mr. Washington," said he. " your modest V equals your valor, and that surpasses the pi-wcrofany language that I posses-." Nothing could be more elegant in id skillful than this double stroke which nt once relieved Washington, while il enhanced the compliment. His Ho.mk and Shouts In tho spring, W.ihiin;ton retired to Mount Veiuou and devoted himself to ag ricultural pursuits. Ho adorned Ins library with lite busts of distinguished military chief tati s of former ages, and, with true Virgiui.i hospitality, kept an open house for Ins friends. Ho was inter ested in every improvement in agri culture entered largely into the cultivation of tobacco, which he shipped directly from his estates to Kiitrluud. lie was very fond of hunting, and kept a fine pack of hounds, inn only for his own amuse ment but that of his friends lie was a splendid rider and when fol lowing the hounds in full cry. tak ing tho daring leap as he flew over the fields, he was the admini ton ( all. Two or three tunes a week. with liorwj and dogs, ho was out his nature finding relief in the ex citement and cluino of tho chase. Duck-shooting was another favor ite pastime, and he spent hours in his boat, stealing stealthily 011 the coveys of birds, or watching their lheht trom Ins place iil concealmein. His love of tins spurt once brought Inm in direct collision with ,1 bold. reckless fellow, who lived on the opposite side of the Potomac, but would oiteu cross a .d shoot near Mount Verismi. Washington had rcaldlyPado his doing so, hut without etfecit lu some t-eclllded reek or nook the poacher would hide away, and shoot nt leisure One day the former hearing a shot. sprang on his horse and galloped to wards the spot whence the sound came. 1 lie marauder, seeing htm approach, ran for his skiff, and had just time to pii-.h offfrom shore and loap in as ashmgton galloped up The lattor instantly rodo in ifc, seized the bont. The teckless fellow with in, immediately levelled his gun at Washington's, breast, swearing that ho would shoot him dead if he did 1101 lot him go. licit the blood of the ex'ciied young planter was up. and paying no attention to his threats, he drew ihe desiicrado fiercely in shore. Ho thou disarmed and drag ged hull out upon ihe bank, and g.ve him .1 thorough eowhiding, as merely a foretaste ot what awaited him if he continued Ins depreda tions Tho I'ltrc was etrectual and the poacher sought other fields in which to pro-ccuto his callmii. Photo was something about Wash ington's demeanor nnd look, when excited, that would make a bold man hesitate to assail him. The Trout Stream What was caught in it. A poor student with empty purse. thread bare coat, loftv aspirations. wasted form and pallid check, appli ed ul Monsieur Dalhs bnanluiti house, bin us he could not " pay down," was required 10 give bonds for lus board, or seek it elsewhere. The somewhat laeetious bin wttli d benevolent Dr. IS lu.-ard llie conver sation between the Mudcui ami the landlord, and coiiipiisslonuting the poor fellow's condition, said 10 him : 'riir, I will board you without bonds." The student turned to the Doctor with a hopeful air, tuuiuriuu Ins terms, when the Doctor replied, ' I hey are simple, yet imperative; I shall require punctual u) incuts weekl)."

CtntAK Hill, Vl. o 1:. The Cubd Qution. Tho plans of the Spanish Gov eminent in regard 10 Cuba, as em- bodied in several deciees just pub lished, and which arc quite minute in their du ails, may be embraced under four heads, u follows : 1. liy .1 re-arr-itigemcul of the, iKill-ta.xes upon slaves, to discour age their use as domestic scituuts, and so leave inoiu hands for lauor 111 the fields. 2. Connected with this system of taxation is one of premiums and ex emptions, intended to encourage marriages ol slaves, in order that, by increased propagation, the cessa tion of imports from Africa may Lo in some liicasme compensated. With this part of the enactment are collected regulations tendinis to en courage humanity to the s uves, and to render their good trcatmeiitpro fitable to their owners. One of the premiums (which are to be paid by tho poll-tax) is to bo allotted to that proprietor of slaves,who, possessing the largest number, has had propor tionately tho fowest deaths among them in tho courso of the year. :i. A very long decree contains rchlatious lor the con vo) mice, pay ment, good tieatiiieut and security 111 ull respects of laborers and ser vants, whose introduction into the colony from the mother country, Chum and Yucatan, tho Govern ment desires lo encourage. 4. Under this head come tho reg ulations, comprised in fifty-six arti cles, for the registration of the slaves. Registers are to be opened in the chief towns of the vurious provinces or Governments of tho Is land of Cuba. After a certain peri od, umly sufficient to permit slave owners to have their staves iuscrib ed, the registers will bo closed, and theucolorwurd all blacks who are not set down in them will be con sidered as free men, to whom nono can lay claim. I ho register, are to bo kept by persons appointed by royal order upon the recommendation of the Captain General of Cuba. They nro subject to heavy fitios for any faults or irregularities they may commit. A slave who by neg ligent is lefi unregistered obtains his freedom, but the registrar must pay his valuo to his owner. The closing aiticlos of Ihe decree order the Captain General of Cuba to put them into immediate execu tion, provisionally appointing regis trars, and fixing the amount of se curity they are to give, and report ing progress to the home Government, Tho decrees do not provide for which kind of expedition every civ tho importation of negroes uJider ilized nation in the World by their nny name or pretence. All blacks law have declared to be piratical ; except those registered as now and the proposition of Mr Slidell slaves, and their descendants, to bo divested of all attempt to cloak it free. jovcr with specious argument, is Mr. Senator Slidell would antici-, nothing more nor less, in its naked pati this change in Cuba by bring-1 deformity, than inviting the organi ntg about another. It is known ' saiion and equipment of piratical ex tli.it men in the United States are jicditions lo redress rent or pretend ready to make n piratical descent , ed, actual or apprehended national upon tho Island; ami Mr. bhdell proposes mat tlie l'restueut uc uu thorised to suspend all laws that re strain them, in other woids to au thorize and invito the fillihustcrs to go ahead. 'Phis, of course, is a now matter of agitation respecting slave ry f but is not brought forward by northern agency. Tho North is content that the law should stand as it is and be faithfully executed. Ii is the South that demands n change, that gels iqi it 1 1 agitation Antic slavery question Mr Slidell' a Plnn fur Amtri citnix'utg Cuba .Having succeed ed in persuading himself that Hug land and France are plotting the ' Africanization" of Cuba. Mr. Sli dell proposes lo head them olf, and to Amcicunizc it, by repeali .g our uoiitiulily laws, and opening upon the devoted island the llootlga.es ol lillibiistertsm and piracy. The fol lowing article trom the Charleston Mercury, a high-toned democratic journal, shows that Mr Slidell will not he sustained by the unanimous approbation of the South : Tra veller. ' 'Pho resolution introduced by Mr. Slidell, a t-cuator trom Louisia na, authorizing tho Piestdeut to sus pending the neutrality .awn, cer tainly merits the utti ntiou it has re ceived, and m our judgment, calls lor a stem rebuke from those who cannot complacently see the Gov ernment committed to such acourse The circums'aucus and disastrous results of ihe Lopez expedition aro distinct in the inmds of ull, and their graves aro yoi fresh, who in defiance of law and under the -in-faiiiutiou of falsehoods, wasted their lives in that miserable expedition. It was a disgrace to the country, a libel upon the orderly chtuacttr which should belong to the citize s ol a Republic, and, in the judgment ol sober men, called for the active enforcement of our neutrality laws 'Po have sanctioned such an en terprise was to commit tho senti ment of the whole couuirv 111 fuvor ol .1 project which howi yjr worthy in some ot its aspects, was blacken ed by the spirit and passions of mere inbbery. Hut tho failure of the Lojiez oxpiduioti only sharpen ed the apjictttesol lillibusterism.and muCle ii more rational in its plans, more resolute in us temper. And how stands the case now ?

The Proposed Suspension of the Neutrality Laws. 'Pho object and 1I10 effect of Mr. Slidell's proposition to repeal or suspend the operation of tho neutrality laws, is 'clearly and fairly stated in the following ara graphs from tho National Intelligen cer: " Our neutrality laws prohibit not only our own citizens but ull others from fitting out hostile exieditious wiihin our own ports to wage pri vate warfare solely on the personal responsibility of the parlies engaged and thus to prey upon the com merce, subjects, or territories of oth er nations. A person who, being armed, stops another on a iitib ie road, and lorcibly despoils him of his watch or lus purso, is culled a higliwaymntij and is by the laws of all civilized nations subject to sev ere penal punishment in most countries to be iguominiously put to death, fames who congregate tor the saiuo purpose to proceed 111 armed vessels upon the high seas, and there to captttro private proper ty of individuals, or to laud upon foreign territories and wage war, are by the acknowledged laws of all nations considered as pirates, and us such aro liable as criminals to be executed by nny nation into whoso hands they may fall. The proposed suspension or re- eal of our neutrality laws would thou amount to a public ami official declaration 011 the part of the Amen can government that our own ciii- zeus or foreigners may fit out, with out let or hindrance, in our ports. expeditions against the territories, commerce, and subjects of Spain, wrong.
