The opinion imbibed by a large portion of mankind in reference to the temper and con duct of (ieneral Jacksen in bis personal rela tions, furnish sinking iUtistrtiti.ms of these tttitlis. Multitudes there are, lioth in the Uni ted Slates mid other countries, who, having re ceived impressions without due consideration, J from presses and persons opp. cd to liiui, be- lieve that distinguished man tube reckless ot ' Uat nioment I pronounced her n superior wo religious faith, if not moral obligation, feroci- '"an. None but a woman of surpassing virtues ous in temper, ami in all the relations of life a i could so fix the alli ctions of such a man. No tyrant, .Such individuals learn with astonish- other could maintain such a hold on such a tiiinil, tnenl, that thw picture is all the reverse, nl j amidst the enjoyment of glory, the gratiticii truth ; thai the lone of lien. Jackson's mind I tion of ambition, the cares of state, and never during his Presidency was decidedly devout ; erasing excitements sufficient to overpower that no man could lie more kind and indulgent and swalhuv up the kindly allections of ordiua in all bis private relations ; and that if be he I ry men. Nine other ceuld occupy, in life and in censurable on this score, it is for too much for- death, so broad a space in the remembrance and henrance. With what pain he found himself ! alii it ions of one who in devotion to his country compelled to give up bis favorable opinion of old friends, and with what tenacity ho clnnr to them, in many cases, after every liody else pro- ; nounced them venal and treacherous, was wit- i nessed by those who were intimate with him during bis administration. Hut without touch ing at present upon nny thing connected with, his political course, I propose to give in the present and in some succeeding papers a few authentic nnecdotes which will lend to correct rtvV; erroneous opinions entertained by many as to bis religious impressions and imputed vio lence of temper. Those who sat down with General Jackson at his private table lo break bread, know with what fervor he uniformly invoked the blessings of heaven un m the renast provided bv itsboun-! ty. A stranger could not witness the scene without according to the venerable man before him, who thus bowed his gray head in humble supplication to the liivcr of ull gooJ, a heart sincerely religious. All will remember, that, toward the close of his administration the lieneral was attacked by a bleediiifjattl.o lungs which threatened to j ho fatal. Nor will it be forgotten, tliat some of j the party presses attributed this attack to a vio- j lent tit of passion, i.i the paroxysms of which they said he had ruptured a blood-vessel What a contrast the real scene presented, I had tin op. portunity to learn from the month of an eye-wit- ! tbisdifliculty was now of u I most daily recur new. The cruel fabrication had readied the J ri'",c 'bathe bad, on several occasions, members of the PreVident's family, and from the j J,,"n,.V in Ins room wholly unable to get lips of Mrs. Jackson, the lady of tiieOenera a-j ,ju J""r' tl,al l,, n ot " disabled, his dopled son, rendered usually eloquent hy the in- j ci,,mI,,c1 " visiters wasolien, from bis pe dignntion which lighted up' her beautiful face, culiar situation, any thing but polite or respect I heard the following narrative : j ful "ld expressed the.ip.niou in very de- . ., ., , . ,, il-. .. i cided terms, that a more suitable person should 'Father, said she, Ha in the habit, every j 1 ...... . . , , c ... ,1 he entrusted wilh that duty.

Theeut tains in front of bis bed were open, and belay Willi his bead p.wicwhat elevated on a full pil low. OpHisite tbo fisit of bis bed, nearly touching the post, stood a little table, ami on it was the miniature of Mrs. Jack whi loaning a gninsta small Rihleand a Prayer Ikwk which had l'a hers. It was evidently so placed that he might, ns be lay, ga.e Umii the shad ow of those loved features w hich hail enraptu red bis youtbliil heart, and contemplate those virtues which in old age, and even death, ren dered tliein tlearlo the laisoin of the hero and statesman beyond an' other earthly object. I was not then so thoroughly acquainted with (en. Jackson as I afterwards became; but on witnessing this sconce, I said to myself, this must hi' a irtmil man. None other could en tertain so deep, so abiding tin affection for n departed companion, however rherished while living. J-ovc like this is all gHsl, all heavenly, all divine, as nearly as anything on earth p'tssihly can be ; it caniint dwell in a bad heart, it cannot assimilate with a perverted mind. I had never seen Mrs. Jackson; but Iroin bad no superior. And I could not but regret, I bat she li.nl not lived, not so much to enjoy a signal triumph ox er her own and her husband's lfaduei-rs, as to comfort, advise and sustain her devoted companion in the midst ot never cease in toils and vexations, the heart lessuess of lUUo friends and the assaults of unrelenting en emies. Who that visited the President's House du ring (ieneral Jackson's administration does not remember Jemmy O'ueal, the Irish dookeeper ! Jctnmy was kind-hearted, but blunt in his man ner ; so much so on some occasions as to ap pear rude if not insult ing. Often one might ring the bell time ufer tune, and Jeunny not '"' appearance. There w is no pirticit- lr cause for Jemmy's upparent rudeness and occasional absence. Calling one day upon business, I rang the bell repeatedly, but no door-keeper appeared. As I had done before under like circumstances, I opened the door and walked up stairs to the President office. There I limnd the (icncral and Major I loiudson. Presently the hell rang "(-'"" ;:"'.

We some time smre alluded to an excel lent little pilnpbli t, just published by Messrs. Manly, Orr iV I.ippincotf, and giving n detailed sketch of the Water Works at Fninuotint. Wp condense n few of the pnrliculars here, without destroying the general interest of the pamphlet, which must possiss great value, not only to strangers but to citi.ens. The first works for Ihe supply of pure water to Philadel phia, were commenced in !?!!', when a h.isin j was termed on the Schuylkill, on the upper side of Chesuut street. In the year the steam works at I'airin Hint were commenced, They were in operation September 7, l"l". In the fall of the erection of the dim and other work at I' airiununt was determined upon, and on Ihe l!lth of April, lsl!l, the great work was commenced by I'apt. Ariel Coolpy, who bad progressed very materially, when he died. Ile ciieiini.torod great difficulties in constructing a dam, but perseveied and was successful. Mr. John Monro was the mason employed toerect the null buildings, which are of stone, feet long mid IV wide. The water-wheels i.ro formed of wood, the shafts are of iron and weigh als ot ." tons each. The first wheel was put in operation July I, H'J'J Itislit'teeu fivl in diameter, nnd iilleen feet long, working under one foot head nnd seven feet ti.ll. Il forces I M H X gallons of water to the receiving teservoir in twenty-four hours, w ith a four and n hall' feet stroke ot the pump and piston of lli inches dnmeter; the wbee making eleven and a hall' revolut inns in a min ute. Five similar wheels have been put in operit ion since, Home of w hich make thirteen revolutions in a minute, w ith n little more wa ter fall, and force 1,."(HVH) gallons in twenty lour hours. The wheels being sunk below the usual lint of high water, it might hcMpmsed they wouh! be obliged to stop at flood tide; but this sel dom happens, except in the spring ut tlx change of the moon, nor then is the motion nf- fected until the back water is ubout sixteen inches on the w heel. The lirst four pumps were made by Messrs Rush & Muhlcnlmrg, nnd the two last, by Messrs. Levi Morris ,V Co., in accordance w ith the designs of Mr. (iralf. Tne water is elevated into the reservoirs lllj feet alaive Hie tide in the Schuylkill The lowest estimate ol the whole nmouiil of water passing; dow n the river io the dry reason, is, I lll,(HH),(NK) uf gallons per twenty four hours The average quantity of water raised by each w heel and pnmp isalstut ."klO.IMH) ir.illons daily, but when the whole six are called into ser vice they can furnish a supply of over six mil lions of gal Ions per twenty-four hours, and that quantity may be increased lo eight or -nine millions, by the erection -of two more w heel anil pumps, which will complete the ongina design, and fill up the present mill buildings. The average daily supply of water fir I ho tilv and liberties is estimated for the present year at alsiut fimr millions of gallons, being an average? of 177 gallons for each permit granted The demand during the ununier months i nearly one third more than in the unite uiopths. According to the tilnive estimate, the capa city ot the present works is sullieient for a popu bit ion of ."itHI,(KMI ; nnd it is contemplated that lliecitywU eventually erect, works at Flat Rocks, on the Schuylkill, six ui:les above the city, and carry the water from thence hv l.ugo iron pipes or a stone aqueduct to the neighhni hood id Ihe tiirard College, where receiving reservoirs will be const rr.cted. The differ ence in fall between Fairiiiount nnd Flat ock is ten feet in lavor of the Later, ami works can thereliire he crtistrncted there lo supply any a luoiiut of water required. There are four reservoirs, which together cover a space of niore than six acres, a nd are capable of containing 2-i,(HHI,(HHI of gallons, or sufficient for five days supply for the City and Liberties. Until l"-','!, wooden pipes Were used in distribute the water through the city, Since that litm iron vqies have been intro duced, and up to January, I I'.', I l-'IA miles of them huve I . en l.nd.

The parlor door was suddenly pened find in stepped a meddling officious I cl ow of the neighliorhood, who accosted him wilh 'Cnmd morning, sir ; you're iilnint going eh !' You've eues-ed it ; I was just iin to take mv p;e-sage to Fredericksburg, on my way to New York.' 'Ah, ha ! good joke, hut it won't do. OH for Texas, I 'spose ; eh, .ifr. Dorr.' You see I know you, m you may as well "cenfesa the corn." '" 'Well, I should think,' said fieorg. opening bis peculiarly large eyes in astonishment, 'that there was some mistake in this matter.' Not in the least, Mitltr Drr. They told me yon would deny your identity; but you see I have got the description, and the legal paper--, JsTitMHI reward, and all that, so come along.' Am! sure enough all was right. The na tive had set a'.Miut the matter in earnest, hv the instigation of some merciless wags, who had made him lioiiove he had hit uhhi the real Rhode Island Covcrnor. Ile would not stop for explanation, fir fear bis rich pri.! would escape him ; nnd, indeed hut little opposition was made, w hen the prisoner discovered they were to proceed directly on his own route. Ac- ordingly the lorttinute individual paid Ins own , , J . , , , , and the captive's passage, !iH each, and pro ceeded in the first train. Hut what was the "iiptor's astonishmenl on arrivingnt Fredericks burg, to hear the agent of ihe line uddress him os Mr. Dixon. What? he ejaculated, 'Dixon!

'Not ns you knows on, stranger; my nntne i Dixon, i ieorge Washington Dixon, Fsijuire who can out talk, out walk, or out viug any thing in old Yargiuny.' Now it is said, that if the victimised individ ual is still going at the rate he started, the flying Dutchman svasu't a circumstance t.) him. ticorgecame on his way rejoicing; nnd ar rived in Vow York a few days ago.
