From the National Intelligencer, Oetoler 13. TUeLard Henry Itee on Woman's Bights. A gentleman of Virginia, well known to us for his sound learning and many accom plishments, Las politely communicated to us the subjoined letter, addressed, in the year 1778, by Richard Henry Lee to his sister, Mrs. Hannah Corbin, of Richmond, Ya., and which has never been previously pub lished. We have it before us in the origi nal manuscript of the writer, familiar to us from other specimens of hi3 hand which hare come beneath our eye.- This letter, it will be observed, wa3 written from Chan tilly, in Westmoreland county, Virginia, the country seat and residence of the illus " trious Revolutionary statesman, and appears from its face to have been in reply to a com munication from his sister in which she had suggested or enforced the political right of widows, either to exemption from taxa tion or to , share in the election of the peo ple's representatives. In order properly to appreciate the origin and motive, as well of Mrs. Corbin's letter to her brother as of the arguments contain ed in the reply of the latter, it is only nec essary to refer to the great principle for which the American colonies were then struggling against the mother country the doctrine that taxation and representation should be inseparable. This is well termed by Mr. Lee "a large subject," and it per haps should occasion no surprise to find that its boundaries were deemed wide enough by some strong minds of the female sex in that revolutionary era to embrace the rights of women as well as of men, especially when the position of the former was such as to impose on them the liabilities which consti tuted the apparent foundation of the civil franchises claimed by the latter. If women were taxed, why should not women have a voice in the election of the taxing author ity? But to the letter of Richard Henry Lee, which we shall make the foundation of fur ther remarks by way of appendix : . Chaotiiat, March 17, 1778. "My Dear Sister: Distressed as my mind is, and has been, by a variety of attentions, I am illy able by letter to give you the sat isfaction I could wish on the several sub jects of your letter. Reasonable a3 you are, and friendly to the freedom and happiness of your country, I should have no doubt about giving you perfect content in a few hours conversation. . "You complain that widows are not rep resented, and that, being temporary posses sors of their estates, ought not to be liable to the tax. The doctrine of representation is a large subject, and it is certain that it ought to he extended far as wisdom and pol icy can allow. . Nor do I see that either of these forbid, widows, haying property, from voting, notwithstanding it has never been the practice either here or in England. Per haps 'twas" thought rather out of character for. women to press into Lthose tumultuous assemblages of men where the business of choosing representatives is conducted. And it might also have been considered as not so necessary, seeing that the' representatives themselves, as well as their immediate con stituents, must suffer the tax imposed in ex act proportion as does all. other property taxed, and that, therefore, it could not be supposed that taxes would be laid where the public good did not absolutely demand it. "This, then, is the widow's security as j well as I that of j the never-married woman who have lands in their own right; for both of whom I have the greatest respect, and would at any time'give my , consent to es tablish their right of voting, although I am persuaded that it "would not give them great er security, nor alter the mode ot taxation you complain. of. j Because the tax idea does sot go to th consideration of perpetu al property, but is accommodated to the high pnees given for the annual profits.. ,Thus, no. more '.than J one-half per cent, is laid on the assessed value, although; produce sells now three or four hundred per cent, above wnat'it tormenr oia. Tobo. Tobacco sold five Or six - years ago for 15s. and 2d., now 'ti3 at 50 and 55. A very considerable part of the properly I hold is, like yours, temporary, for my life only; yet I seethe propriety of paying my . proportion of the tax laid for. the protection of property so long as that property remains in my posses sion and I derive use and profit from it. "When we complained of British taxa tion-we did eo with much reason, and there is great difference between our case and that of the unrepresented in this country. . The English Parliament nor their representatives would pay a farthing of the tax they impos ed on as but quite otherwise. Their prop erty would have been- exonerated in exact proportion to the burdens they laid on ours Oppressions, therefore, "without end, and taxes without - reason or public necessity. would hare been our fate had we submitted to British usurpation. For mv part; I had much rather leave my children free than in possession of great nominal -wealth, which would infallibly have been the case with all American possessions had our property been subject to the arbitrary taxation of a British Parliament. - "With respect to Mr. Flauntleroy, if he speaks as you say, it is a very good reason why he otigtit not to be an assessor. Uut, if he should be,- the law has wisely provi ded a remedy aijainst the mistakes or the in justice of assessors, by giving the . injured party appeal to the Commissioners ot the -Tax, which Commissioners are annually chosen by the freeholders and houskers, (housekeepers,) and in the choice of whom you have a3 legal a right to vote as any oth er person. 1 believe there is no instance in our new government of any unnecessary placemen; and I know the rule is to make their salaries roolerate 3 possible, and even these moderate salaries are to pay tax. But should Great Britain gain her point, where we have one placeman we should have thousand, and pay pounds where we pay pence; nor should we care to murmur, un der pain of military execution. This, with the other horrid concomitants of slavery, may well persuade the Americans to loose blood and pay taxes also, rather than sub mit to them. "My extensive engagements have prevent ed me from adverting to yours and Dr. Hall's subscription for Ld. Camden's picture not having been refunded, as the forest have long since been, but the money is ready for your call. - "I am, my dear sister, most sincerely and affectionately yours, "Richard Henry Lee."

Editors : The following amus ing incident occurred in our town a few weeks since. It will apply to other locali ties as well as this. . A short time since it became necessary to adopt measures to procure the services of a minister of the African church in this place. Accordingly a committee was ap pointed to wait upon 'Brudder Pearce' (who was generally acknowledged to be the most suitable personage to fill that high and hon orable station), and solicit him to accept the pastorship of their church. They were informed that he would undertake the labo rious task for the very moderate sum of forty-five dollars per annum ; but insignifi cant as the price seems, his flock thought it exorbitant, and peremptorily refused to give it. Two or three weeks passed, and, being unable to get another preacher, it was finally agreed to pay the stipend, and on the ensu ing Sabbath the following took place '.' ' Brudder Pearce, we's 'eluded to gin you forty-five dollars to preach for us,' said a benevolent colored individual ; whereupon our clerical Iriend rose and responded : Breddren, I can't preach for that price.' ' Why you only axed forty-five,' cried a half dozen voices. " Shore nuff I did, breddren, but dat you know was tree weeks ago, and preachers has nz. . ; Characteristic. We find the following in the Christian Inquirer z ' "Rev. John Pierpont, the poet of Pales tine, was at iN lagara a summer or two ago, and it was a . beautiful Sabbath morning, when he went out to worship, where the ' light wave just breaks, and wluspers of its Maker s might. One of those officious, silly creatures, whose religion consists in a straight-bodied coat, and occupied pew, and two sermons a week, posted after the poet like a missionary alter a heathen. His soul what little he had wa3 crooked up into an interrogating point, and wnggled with anxiety for the sinner's welfare. Was Mr. Pierpont going to church V ' Yes. 'And whom would he hear preach ?' 4 God Almightv, was the brief and perti nent reply, as he turned again from the buz zing insect to the eloquence of Niagara." Pierce akd Arnold. A correspondent thus writes : 'At a Lyceum held in Ches ter Academy last Friday evening, after an able discussion on the following question, Resolved, that Franklin Pierce is a baser traitor and scoundrel than Benedict Arnold,' it was decided by a vote of the members, 17 in the affirmative to four in the negative. The chapel of the Academy was full, and it was one of the best Lyceums that has been held in this place for some years. Bellows Falls (F?.) Times, Sept. 23.' . ..

" - English Tribnto to American Bail Beads. ' The London (Eng.) Dispatch in com menting od the present panic thus speaks to the English stockholder in our Railroads : "We repeat our warning to our readers not to be bamboozled into throwing away their American railway securities by the confused clamor and manufactured : rumor paragraphs and articles " got np'.V in Wall street, and perhaps near home, lhe game of the swindling rogues who have been con spiring to beat and bang the New York marketwill not hold out if it be not fed by panie sales of foolish holders. It must be remembered that the average wealth of the American people is greater than our .own. Money is more equally diffused, wages are higher, the people are more locomotive, and therefore better customers to the lines.-r- The cost of construction does . not average one-third of that of the English lines. Whatever, therefore, may be the sharper tricks of .American financiers, and however great may be the temporary embarrassments of stock-dealers in reference to ; the com mand of money, we are very sure that American railways are safe as investments, even allowing an ample margin for pecula- lation. American products are all of the sort to require large carriage costs to give them their value, -lhe railroad is the very life of , American ; commerce and agri culture. Wouter van Twiller's battles in "Knickerbocker" sounded in description as if the very heavens and earth were war ring and rushing to rum ; but when the nett results came to be " lotted,", there re mained only a torn hat and a bloody nose So we suspect it may turn out with this American panic.

"Are you afraid of banks failing ?" asked the cashier, as Mrs. Partington went to draw her pension. "Banks failinc" said the dame, "I never had any idea about it at all. If he gets votes enough I don't see how he can fail, and if he don 1 1 can t see how he is to help it." "I meant," said he, "the banks that furnish currency for the country." She stood a moment counting her bills. "Oh ! you did, did you ?" said she ; well, it's about the same thing. If they have money enough to redeem witli and heaven knows there is need enough of redemption for a good many of them and more grace than they allow their customers, they may stand it, but doubtful things are uncertain." She passed off like an exhalation, and the cashier counted out one hundred and fifteen dollars and seventeen cents fifteen times while pondering what she said, in order to catch her meaning. Boston Gazette. CoTTOir is Kixo. The New York Ex press says, that in spite of the anticipated reluctance of x-nsland to send specie to America, sore pressed as she is by the East ern wars, "nevertheless, gold must come, no matter what it costs us for 'cotton is king;' and cotton alone can be had of us in sufficient quantity to meet the overrul ing demands of the British manufacturers. Bread may be got elsewhere, and other things also; but cotton is American, and cotton must be had, and gold must pay for the cotton. Rattier Cool. A Mr. Taylor, of Co- hoes, N.
