Thov live six miles from Wnsliiiioion, ni a country seat in Maryland, known as Silver Sjirlny. Nearly every day they bolli ride int Washington on Horse back ; and when they do not come to Wasliinn'lon, tliey rule aslar in the op posite direction. Mr. Blair wears a uroad-brinnned, slouched hat, and looks ulce the relic ol a century ago. lie Is very thin; his legs aro hardly larger than a common man's wrist; and, by the time he gets into the citv, his trou sers have slipped half way up to his Knees. Mrs. JJlair, who is a robust, stout, line- looking old lady, wears a broad. Quaker sunbonnet, made of pasteboard slips, so that sue can gather il all up together in her hand, and a white, dainty short dress. Mr. Blair always rides about a length and a half of the horse ahead of her. Ilc rides up to tho steps in front of Montgomery Blair's house, throws the reins down on the horse's neck, dis mounts, and proceeds directly up the steps. The horse droops his head and stands still. Directly Mrs. Blair rides up, switches her husband's horse out of the way, gets oil' her horse, and follows her husband into the house. One end of this house is occupied by Monitromcrv Blair Mr. Blair's eldest son a gra'duatcjof West Point, once a Judge in Missouri, an ofllce-hblder un der Buchanan, potmastcr-gcncral under .Lincoln, a lnenilly man, a llrst-rate . ater, and a very virulent politician and stump-speaker ; and tho other end is occupied by Rear-Admiral Lee, who married tho only daughter of old Mr. Blair, and made $90,'000.'prize-monoy be- iore he stopped the rebels lrom running the blockade at Wilmington during tho late war. 'I he mansion where Mont gomery Blair lives, and where old Mr. and Airs. Blair alight as thev riue into Washington, is one in which Mr. Sena tor Benton formerly lived. It is situated across the street, in front of tho Whito Jlousc and nearly opposite the War De partment. Old Air. Blair was originally engaged in ban icing in Kentucky, lie was brought to Washington by Gen. Jack son, between whom and himself a warm ind lile-long iriendship subsisted. The old Globe, edited by him and pub lished by Blair & Hives, was tho great organ of the Democratic party in the days of Jackson, and was n power in the land. Tho JJiairs and tlio Frcmonts were strong friends until the separation which tooic place between them nt t. Louis during the war, and which proved injurious to botli parties. i'robably there was no other man liv ing who has held so many important interviews with Presidents in tlieWhite House as Francis P. Blair, senr. It was he who looked out, at the request ot yen. Jackson, a suitable place in which to in terline, in one of Old Hickory's messa ges, the memorable words: "I lako tho responsibility," Old Mr. Blair is certainly a remarka ble man, and has lived a remarkable ca reer as a politician. He had been ns t mend laithlul, bold, and poworlul, nnd as an enemy malignant, ehivalric, and loimidabic. J. i . Sun. The Empty Cradle.
