From the time that Washington resigned
the command of the army to his acceptance ,
of the Presidency, his correspondence fills t>
folio volume*—scarcely one ol these letters |
luve been published.
H;s letters tu Mr. Jay, up'.ti the subject of
the Treaty with Kngl.ii.il, are of the highest -
interest; in reference to which papers, Mr.
Sparks observss:—"1 take it upon me t .
sav, without qualification, that among the |
mass of Washington's private and confide..
ti.d papers, pertaining to the stormy sea- ;
sons of his administration, there is no rec
ord that dreads the light, none that would, |
m the smallest degree, detract from the
brightness of his character, by being expos- (
A most surprising and dreadful occurence 1
lately took place in one of the provinces oi i
France. A counterfeiter, who had hem j
condemned to be hung, made his escape ou j
the way to the gallows, and took refuge in
an hospital. Alter some search he was I
lound, as was thought, disguised. He
carried off, uttering not a syllable, but ges
ticulating vehemently, and executed. It was
shortly afterwards discovered that the offi
cers had hung a deaf and dumb brother of
the convict, who had resided long in the hos
pital. l he real criminal was recommended
to tht- royal clemency.
There is besides, in Washington's hatul 1
writing an entire copy ot Ilraddock's genet
alorder's, as they were issued daily, from thc
•ime he entered Virginia, until his defeat,
èxcepting a few days in which Washington
was confined by fever.
' Washington's Revolutionary Papers have
all been transcribed into large folio volumes,
amounting to forty-four in number, and ar
ranged according to the following classifica- .
j Letters to the Congress of the United
States—to committees id Congress;!
