A letter from this city to the Nashville, Teon., American, says : "Mr. Edward Hughts i- the proprietor of the Alexandria House, in tun city. His grand fat ber kept an ion on the Fairfax road, between Alexandria and Mount Vernon. At that ion was arranged the first important political 'combine' in the history of the United States, and one which has never been exceeded in magnitude. This was the 'combine' by which the bite of the Capital of the United States was chosen, and which enabled Alexander Hamilton, Washington's Secretary of the Treasury, to push through Congress his pet Echeme for settling the pub lie debt. When, after the inauguration of Washington, the first Congress met, the two matters of paramount interest which came before it were the eettlemt at of the big debt of the new Republic aad the crjoic9 of a permanent site for the National Capital. Alexander Hamilton had concocted a plan for the settlement of the debt, and was very proud of it. He was heartily supported by the Federalists, under the iead of Thomas Jefferson. After a long fight in the House of Representatives, one of tbo sections of Hamilton's bill failed to pass, lacking three votes of a majority. The whole mensure was then dropped temporarily. But Hamil? ton did not give up hope. He saw a way by which to get the measure through ; name? ly, a deal, the basis of which was an appeal to State pride. While tho funding bill was under discussion nearly all the Repitsenta lives of the original States were working hard to secure tho National Capital site within tho borders of their States. The New Yorkers, Virginians, aud PenasjIranians, were the leading competitor?. Virginia was especially desirous to get the Capital. The whole Virginia delegation was opposed to Hamilton's Treasury bill. No argument could change their votes, and when the first session of Congress was adjourned the mem? bers went to their homes, leaving tho two great questions of the day unsettled. Dur? ing the recees Hamilton formulated his scheme to gain the votes necessary to pass his bill. He determined to trade off the New York delegation, which was entirely under bis control, for three Virginia votes, through an arrangement by which New York would support Virginia in its claims for the National Capital if three of the Virginians would vote for his bill. At the time Mr. Hughes's grandfather kept the old Fairfax inn, and it was a popular re?ort for travelers. Washington and his Mount Vernon visitors olten stopped there for refreshments. During the summer fol? lowing the adjournment of Congress one of bis visitors was Alexander Hamilton. He had not come down to Mount Vernon solely for social purposes. He had his "combine" in view. He had been corresponding with certain anti-Federalist Virginia Congress? men, whom he knew cherished a Btrone State pride, and he wanted to have a talk with them. The meeting place was at Hughe j's ion. There Hamilton met his men, and the back porch where the discussion ocenrred is to this day pointed out by the Hughes family. It overlooks the Potomac and Washington city. The news of the meeting did not come out for many months afcerward. But its effect was perceived sooner. When Congress came together again everybody except Hamiiton, the Vir? ginia Congressmen, and probably President Washington, thought the old fight on the two questions would be resumed. But it was not so. Hamilton's bill came up again and three Virginia Representatives who opposed it before voted for it, and it was passed in its entirety. This was a sur? prise, but the surprise became greater when the Capital Bite matter came up. Pennsyl? vania was very confident of winning the prize; in fact, the State was assured that New York's vote would eventually come over to it. But when the vote was called New York voted eolidly for Virginia. That settled the matter. Virginia took the bun, and the present site of the Capital was chosen. The old tavern in which the 'com? bine' was effected is still in a good state of preservation. It is built of bricks imported from England, which came over in the same vessel that brought the materials for the building of old Christ Church in Alexandria, where Washington regularly worshipped during the later years of his life." Many people take newspapers, but few preserve them;, yet the most interesting reading imaginable is a file of old news? papers?it brings up Ihe very age with all its bustle and every-day affairs, and marks its genins and spirit more than the most la? bored descriptions of the historian.
