BY JOHN PHENIX.* George Washington was one of the most distinguished movers of the American Revolution. He was born ot poor but honest pa rents, at Genoa, in the year 1492. His mother was called the mother of Washington. He married, early in lite, a single widow lady, Mrs. Martha Custis, whom Prescott describes as the enssedest prettiest woman south of Mason and Dixon's line. Young W., commenced business as a county sur veyor, and was present in that charac ter at a sham fight under Gen. Fad lock, where so many guns were fired that the whole body of militia were stunned by the explosion, and sat down to supper unable to hear a word that was said. This supper was after wards alluded to as Braddock's defeat, and the simile, dead as Braddock," subsequently vulgarized into deaf as a haddock, had its rise from that cir cumstance. Washington commanded several troops during the Revolution ary war, ana distinguished himself by crossing the Delaware on ice of very inadequate thickness, to visit a family of Hessians ot his acquaintance. Ho was passionately fond of green peas and string beans and his favorite motto was: In time of peas prepare for war.*' Washington's most intimate friend was a French gentleman, named Mar cus Dee, who irom his constant habits of risibility, was nicknamed laughy yet." His great victory was at Ger mantown, where, coming upon the British in the night, he completely surrounded them with a wall of cotton bales, from which he opened a de structive and terrific fire, which soon caused the enemy to oapitulate. The cotton bales being perforated with musket balls, were much increased in weight, and consequently in value, and the expression playfully used, What is the price of cotton was much in vogue after the battle. During the action, Washington might have been teen driving up and down the lines, exposed in a small Concord wagon, drawn by a bobtail gray horse, TH E RE SENTINEL Mimnesmta Forever: RED WING, GOODHUE COUNTY, MINN., WEDNESDAY. APRIL 11. I860. His celebrated despatch, Veni, vidi, vici," or, I came and saw in a Concord wagon, has reference to this circum stance. Washington has been called the Father of his country (an unapt ti tle, more properly belonging to the late Mr. McCloskey, parent of the cel ebrated pugilist the child has grown, however, to that extent its own father would not know it Gen. Walker (William Walker) is also called the Father of Nicaragua," and we have no doubt, in case of his demise, his children, the native Nicaraguans, would erect a suitable monument over bis remains, with the inscription, "Go, father, and fare worse Washington was a member of the know nothing order, and directed that none but Americans should be put on guard, which greatly annoyed the Americans, their comfort being entire ly destroyed by perpetual turns of guard duty. He was twice elected President of the United States by the combined whig and know nothing parties, the federalists and abolitionists voting against him and served out his time with great credit to himself and the country—drawing his salary with a regularity and precision worthy of all commendation. Although, for the time in which he lived, a very distinguished man, theman ignorance of Washington is some thing perfectly incredible. He never traveled on a steamboat never saw a railroad or a locomotive engine was perfectly ignorant of the principle of the magnetic telegraph never had a daguerreotype, Colt's pistol, Sharpens rifle, or used a friction match. He ate his meals with an iron fork, never used postage stamps on his letters, and knew nothing of the application of chloroform to alleviate suffering, or the use of gas for illumination. Such a man as this could hardly be elected President of the United States in these times, although it must be con fessed, we occasionally have a candi date who proves not much better in formed about matters in general. A monument has been commenced in the city of Washington to his mem ory, which is to be five hundred feet in height and it should be the wish of every true-hearted American that his virtues and services may not be forgotten before it is completed in which ease their remembrance will probably endure forever- John Phoenix—one oi the be*t humorists In this country— is a Lieutenant in the United States Army. This burlesque biography of Washington is a hit at the mistakes made by many writers in quoting important events from history. It would be difficult to crowd more humor into so small a space. OH SHAME Jront Washington died from exposure on the summit of Mount Vernon, in the year 1786, leaving behind him a name that will endure forever, if posterity persist in calling their children after him to the same extent that has been fashionable. He is mentioned in bis tory as having been first in peace,, first in war, and first in the hearts of his country in other words, he wasbetween No. I in everything, and it was equal ly his interest and his pleasure to look out for that number, and he took pre cious good care to do so. A portrait, by Gilbert Stuart, of this great soldier and statesman, may be seen, very bad ly engraved, in the History of the United States," but as it was taken when the General was in the act of chewing tobacco, the left cheek is dis tended out of proportion, and the like ness rendered very unsatisfactory. Upon the whole, General George Washington was a very excellent man though unfamiliar with Scott's infantry tactics, he was a tolerable offi cer though he married a widow, he was a fond husband and though he did not know the Beecher family, he was a sincere Christian. To accommodate a certain "anti slavery test at the north, sueh corres pondence as follows is regularly furn ished to order for the use of sensation Republican papers. The idea here conveyed, is, that a father was con veying a beautiful, blue-eyed, lady-like, well-formed, sweet, fair-haired, dear complexioned daughter to market, for sale as a victim to lust, and that the purchaser was a friendl None but a libeller of Southern manhood would write such stuff, and none but fools will believe it but such stories go theyou rounds, and papers as respectable as the steady old Chicago Journal want political success so much that they grutality ive currency to anything charging upon citizens of the Southern States. BLEACHING.—A correspondent of the Chicago Journal, writing from Cincinnati, relates the following inci dent: On the cars the other day, we no ticed a beautiful woman—one of the sweetest lady-like countanances we have seen for many a day—attracted our attention. On the seat back of her was a gentlemanly looking man, whose features, the lady's very much resembled. Before the cars started, another well dressed gentlman came in, recognizing the first, took a seat by the side of him. "Is that a slave?" asked the second gentleman, pointing to the lady in "Yes." We were astonished, for the lady had deep blue eyes, straight, beauti ful hair and a clear blooming complex ion. "Yours?" "Yes." "For sale?" Yes." "What do you ask?" "Twelve hundred." The trader —for so I deemed him— walked out in front of the woman, ex amined her hands, tried her joints, and then as if examining a beef, with both hands examined her bosom, ab domon and hips, in the mean time ask ing the shrinking creature a series of questions such as we hope never again to hear put to one of the sex of our own mother. "I'll take her, and pay the money when the train ." That blue-eyed, flaxen-haired chattel goes to New Orlaans and to a fate worse than death. Suoh is the "divine institution." NEVE SA I E Old Doctor lived and prac ticed his profession in the county of in the eastern part of the State of New York. He was a Scotch by descent, a pious and good member of the Presbyterian Church. His indomitable energy, perserverance and determination to succeed made him very celebrated as a successful physician, and caused bim to be cal led, as a dernier resort, to great distan ces. Pious as he was, and conse quently anxious for the salvation of the souls of his patients, yet his invariable motto was, "Never say die His business, he said, was to save the body if he was to try he could not save the soul—that was the work of the Almighty. For this reason he always acted upon the principles of his motto, "Never say die One Sunday in July, about midday, hot and muggy as a July Sunday ever was, he was called to a village on the banks of the beautiful Hudson, to see a lady who was said to be dying.— When he drove up to the door of the house he found its one room filled with the members of the church, on their knees with the minister who was loud ly praying that their sister who was dying might be received immediately into glory. The old Doctor, stepping their kneeling bodies, quick ly approached the dying woman's bed, felt her pulse, and whispering to her "Never say die," immediately seized the minister under the arms from be hind, and carrying him to the door, gave him a throw and a kick, saying, "You go there and this woman will not go to glory to-day." The woman recovered, and she always believed that the startling effect of those words, "Never say die," and the exciting scene which followed were the means of her recovery. "Never say die," in any effort is worthy to be the motto of every man, woman and child who is determined to succeed in the world. —tf. Y. News. A NEGRO MARRIAGE LINK Creek, Feb 26th, 1860. Editors of the Montgomery Mail:— The following marriage ceremony 1 recently obtained from one of my negroes, and if you think it will in terest any of your readers you may publish it: "Here is a couple who have walked out to-night, wishing to be jined in, and through love, and wishing all dem dat have anything twixten dem come forward and speak now, if not, let dem hold their peace now and forever more.

LEADING EVENTS IN E LIVES O EMINENT AMERICANS. Under this head the American Plaindealer is giving, from time to time brief sketches of eminent Americans, living and dead. To the student these sketches must be particularly valua ble, as there can be no doubt as to their reliability, and it might be well to cut them out for future reference: WEBSTER, Daniel—Born of obscure STew arents in a poor but honest town of Hampshire. Member of Con gress several years, and author of Webster's dictionary, and elementary spelling book. Was constitutionally opposed to treating, and died at Mars field on the Andsoscoggin River, some years since. He was a man of ability. Even the old line whigs of Boston will admit that SCOTT, Wtnfleld—Born in Ireland, and brought up in the interior of Ger many, which accounts for his pas sionate love, for the sweet acoeut of the latter country and the rioh brogue of the former. Wrote Lady of the Lake, lvanhoe, «fco., and was in the Mexican war, and also participated in several prise fights, which secured for him the familiar appellation of Scot ty." In 1852, he ran against Gen. Pieree of New Hampshire, and was so seriously jarred by the collision, that he had to lay off for awhile in one of the military hospitals he found ed just before the campaign com menced. He is at present in the mill tia and employs his leisure moments in writing for the New York Clipper sod Atlantic Monthly. Buchanan, J.—Born in Pennsylva nia. Has played many parts on* the political stage, and for the last two years has been playing hell in Wash ington city. Unmarried and partial to rye Parker, Theodore.—Born in Maine, and keeps a drinking house in Boston, which is known as Parker's." Mr, P.'s cocktails are not excelled. Taylor, Zachary—Born in Virginia and was in the Mexican war. Found ed Taylor's celebrated saloon in New york, and also invented Taylor's corn shucker. Beach, Moses Y.—Established the N. Y. Sun, for some time called the son of a Beach," and the phrrse is now one of the most popular and com mon in our language. Seward, W. EL.—Wholesale dealer in liquors, Auburn, N. Y., was author of the Irresponsible Conflict Wants to lease the premises occupied by James Buchanan, at Washington. Has been much in pnblic life and always drew his salary promptly. Is a par ticular friend of Thurlow Weed, from whence arose the expression, "he uses the Weed." Bryant, Wrn. C—Wrote Thanatop sis and several other favorite ballads, the success of which induced him to establish an Ethiopian Opera Troupe in New York, under the name of Bry ant's Minstrels. His essence of Old Virginia had a great run. the PHOTOGRAPHY.—The art, or method by which pictures, or impres sions of objects can be produced by the action of light, is comparatively of recent origin, and consists mainly of two seperate and distinct processes, one of which is of Frenoh and the oth er of English invention. The French art, depends in principle upon a fact scarcely known till this discovery, that the chemical action of light upon some bodies, imparts to them an in creased power of condensing certain vapor on the surface. Thus, if the light be allowed to fall upon apart of the polished plate of silver, which has been exposed to the fumes of Iodine, until it has acquired a coating of that substance, and the plate be then placed in the vapor of mercury, the mercurial vapor will be deposited upon that part of the plate where the light has fallen, and will cause a dimness or white appearance, forming a strong contrast with the remainder of the polished surface. If the picture of a camera-obscura be allowed to rest a sufficient time upon such a plate, it it can be made visible upon it in a simi lar manner. The brightest parts of picture will be shown by the greatest whitening effect of the mer cury, as it is condensed most copiously where the action of the light has been strongest intermediate tints will be brought out by degrees ot whiteness varying according to the amount of light, while deep shadows or dark ob jects will be marked by the black or resplendent surface of the metal, which remains untarnished. 83F"When you see a young lady so very delicate that she can't make her own bed, or put a couple of plates up on the table, and yet trots all over town daily with the speed of a race horse, to jumble nonsense with the Softpates, and Snippers, Jinkinses, and Dnzenbcrries, just chalk it down that she's a peine of calico you can't invest a single penny or pulsation in. A girl who hasn't muscle to lift three feathers and a pillow case, but can tire a locomotive and a whole omnibns line out of breath, is an institution that, like prussic acid and old maids, is to be kept clear of. Young men will please button up that fact in their memory. 0*L~/t^ A E S O ADVERTISING.

I O CHARACTER Over the beauty of plum and apri cot there grows a bloom and beauty more exquisite than the fruit itself—a soft, delicate flush that overspread* its cheek. Now if yon strike your hand over that, and it is once gone, it is gonefarever: for it never grow but once. The flower that hangs in the morning impearled with dew—arrayed as no queenly woman ever was arrayed in jewels—onee shake it so the heads roll off, and you may sprinkle water over it as you please, yet it can nover be made again what it was when the dew fell upon it from heaven I On a frosty morning you may see the panes of glass covered with landscapes— mountains, lakes, and trees blending in a beautiful, fantastic picture. Now lay your hand upon the glass, and by the scratch of your finger, or by the warmth of your palm all the dilecate tracery will be obliterated. So there is in youth a beauty and purity of char acter, which, when once touched and defiled, can never be restored-a fringe more delicate than frost work, and which, when torn and broken, will never be re-embroidered. A man who has spotted and soiled his garments in youth, though he may seek to make them white again, can never wholly do it, even were he to wash them with his tears. When a young man leaves his father's house, with the blessing of his mother's tears still wet upon his forehead, if he once loses that purity of character, it is a loss that can never make whole again. Such is the conse quence ot crime, Its effects oannotbe eradicated, it can only be forgiven, I A PBOTANE CKOW.--^Several years since, on a warm sabbath morning, while the Rev. Dr. B., of a well known fishing town in Massachusetts was holding forth, a tame crow which had been tausht to utter but one word and that a wicked one, flew into the church and alighting on the pulpit, sal uted the minister with "G-d d—u ye," whereupon the enraged as well as hor ror stricken parson drew off and gave the "gentleman in black," win der that sent him to the floor. Noth ing daunted by this, however, the crow was soon upon his feet, and looking up at the reverend gentleman repeated his salutation with such an emphasis that he took to his heels, and together with his congregation, scampered from the sacred edifice in double quick time. One little old woman, whose seat was in one corner, did not see fit to follow the example of the shepherd or his flock, but firmly kept her position upon seeing which the crow advanced toward her, and hopping upon the seat in front of her, again gave vent to his favorite expression the old woman not a little astonished at his impudence and evidently taking him for an evil spirit, in the shape of a bird, yelled forth at him, God damn you too what do you God damn me for I don't belong to this church!" and giving him a wipe with her umbrella, she cleared the coast, leaving the church to silence and the crow. MARSHAL N E S DEATH SCENE.— The vengeance of the allied powers demanded some victims, and the in trepid Nay, who had well nigh again put the crown upon Bonaparte's head at Waterloo was one of them. Con demned to be shot, he was led to the Garden of Luxembourg early on the morniug of the 7th December, and placed in front of a file of soldiers drawn up to kill him. One ot the of ficers stepped up to bandage his eyes but he repulsed him saying, are you ignorant that for five and twenty years I have been accustomed to face both ball and bullet He then lifted his hat above his head, and with the same calm voice that bad steadied his col umus so frequently, in the tumult of of battle, said, I declare, before God and man, that I never betrayed my country—may my death render her happy! Vive la Frauce!" He then gave the order, Soldiers fire!" A simultaneous discharge followed, and the bravest of the brave sank to rise no more." "He who had fought Jive hundred battles for France and never one against her was shot as a traitor!" As I looked on the spot where he fell, I could not but sigh over his fate. True he broke his oath of allegiance, so did others, carried away by their attachment to Napoleon and the enthu siasm that hailed his approach to Par is—still, he was no traitor. A N example of success in life, is il lustrated in the experience of Rt. Rev. John Hughes, Catholic Archbishop of New York. In 1616, this descendant of a Welchman, and son of an Irish farmer, came to the United States, and wrought as a laborer. He was head gardener, for nine months of the first year he pursued his studies at the Theological Seminary at Mount St. Mary, near Emitsburg, Maryland, his services being given for his instruc tion, by a private preceptor. B^*"So, Charley, I hear you have been to a juvenile party." Precocious boy.—"Well, I don't hnow what you call juvenile. There was no one there under five years old."
