It clung to bim after he took a fiual leave of school in the autumn of 1847 and went to reside with his brother Lawrence at Mount Vernon. Here he ccntinued his mathematical studies and his practice in surveying, disturbed at times by recurrences of his unlucky passion. Though by no means of a poetical temperament, the waste piges of his journal Imtray several at tempts to pour forth his amorous sorrows in verse. They are mere common-place rhymes, such as lovers at his age are apt to write, iu which he bewails his "poor restless heart, wounded by Cupid's dart," and "hi for one who remains pitiless of his griefs and l,tusuan doml 1 .us; ' , K WoeJ ,, 1 . about three years, leaving her wuu two young The tenor of some of his verses induces us ' ciMv a a'ula 1;ir tune.

George Fairfax," in a great measure cheers his sor row and dejectcdness. The object of his ear ly passion is not positively known. Tradi tion states that tl.e "lowland beauty" was a Miss Grimes of Westmorland, afterward Mrs. Lee, and mother of Geu. Henry Lee, who fig ured in the revolution as 'Light Horse Harry,' and was always a favorite with Washington, probab!y from the recollections of his early tenderness for his mother.

His lordship ataunch'fox-hunier, and kept horses and ! bcundd in the English style. ihe hunting j season had arrived. The neighborhood abound jedwith sport; but, fox-hunting in Virginia required bold and skillful horsemanship. He found Washington a bold as himself in the saddle, and as eager to follow the hounds, lie forthwith took him into peculiar favor, made him his huntinL' cornnanion: and it was rrob- ably under the tuition of this old nobleman ; that the youth imbibed th.-it fondness for the chase for which he was afterwards remark ed. Tradition gives very different motives from those of business for hia two sojourns in tho latter city, lie found there an early friend and school-mate, Beverly Robinson, son of John Robinson, Speaker of the Virginia House of Burgesses. He was living happily and Prosperously with a young and wealthy bride, laving married ono of the nieces and heiress es of Mr. Adolphus l'hilipse, a rich landhold er, and whose manor-house is still to be seen on tho banks of the Hudson. At the house of Mr. Beverly Robinson, where Washington was an honored guest, he met Miss Mary l'hil ipse, a sister and co-heiress with Mrs. Robin son, a young lady whose personal attrac tions are said to have rivaled her reputed wealth. We have already given an instance of Wash- j ington's early sensibility to female charms.

In crossing a ferry of the Paiuunkey, a branch of York River, he fell in company with a Mr. Chamberlayne who lived in the neighborhood, and who, in the spirit of Vir ginian hospitality, claimed him as a guest. It was with dilhcuhy Washington could be prevailed on to halt for dinner so impatient was he to arrive at Williamsburgh and accom plish his mission. Among the guests at Mr. Chamberlay n's was a young and blooming widow, Mrs. Martha Custis, daughter of Mr. John Daiuhidge, 1 .1 . . . .v. - : ooui patrician names 1 it mo prut nice Her . . . . , , , . , , , , , tr.ose iranK, engaging manners, so cap.iva- ting in outp.ern women. tt e arc not, in formed whether Washington had met with quickly suseepuoie to tciuaie cnarms: and they may have had a greater effect upon him when thus casually encountered in fleeting moments, snatched from the cares and perplexities and rude scenes of fiontier warfare. At any rate his heart appears to have been taken by sur prise. The dinner, which in those days was an earlier meal than at present, seemed all too short. Tbe afternoou passed away like a dream. Bishop was punctual to the orders he had received on halting: the horses pawed at lbe door' bul for onco Washington loitered in the rath of duty. The horses were counter- manded, and it was not until the next morn ing that he was in the saddle, spurring for Williamsburg. Happily, the White House, the residence of Mrs. Cnstis, was in New Kent county, at no great distance from that city, so tbat b, baa opportunities of visiting her in the intervals 01 Business, ins ume ior courismp. however, was brief.

He first alluded to the charge made by "Pomeroy" Fitch, that , the Legislature elected by the people of Indi- ana was incompetent and corrupt, and asked if it were possible that "old liners" who made '' the voice of the people their special deity, ' could thus stultify themselves by declaring in effect that the' people could not govern them- said a man to us yesterday, speaking of the selves? That Legislature had be?n selected death of his friend. "Ho projected an un by nearlv one hundred thousand voters of In- wise improvement of a piece of real estate diana, as well able to judge accurately and honestly as Mr. Fitch or any other man.

The speakers of last night, he said, took particular pains to evade the great issue upon which the battle in this State had been fought. Not one of them had alluded to the Kansas tnd Nebraska Bill, which was the gieat ques tion in this contest.

C-'n. Otzette. akinj: llim-ir Vwefat. During the session of 1796-7, a wealthy merchant in conformity with the custom of the times cave a dinner Dartr to a few ,n. 1 however, the lady of the house was somewhat annoyed at an early hour by the intrusion of an 01a man at the door. Having been met by la servant, he inquired if the proprietor of the house whom we will call Mr. Topham was i at home. Upon receiy ing a negative reply, and being furthermore informed that he would not be at home for some three or four hours, the old man said, "Well, being as 1 am here, 1 may as well remain until he comes." "Please wait a moment," said the servant. "I will call Mrs. Topham to the door and sea i what she will say." Tho servant then ran ! and called the merchant's wife, who made her appearance. J.he old man then repeated : w hat ho had said to the servant that oeing las be was there he might as well remain until I her husband came. "Well," replied Mrs. T., I "If you will stay, just walkthrough the alley ; and go back to tha kitchen, and take a seat." ! Nothinir daunted, the old man ohaved .ir.ior and passed through the alley to the kitchen where he found Mrs. T. and her servants ' very busily engaged in preparing dinner. '-. Supposing him some old man seeking employ- ment, Mrs. T. was free in calling into requisi tion his services in her work of preparing dinner, and he was equally willing to render all assistance possible. "Old man," said she. "suppose you take ihe bucket, go to the hy- - drant and draw us some water." He at once and readily complied with the request. "Old man," again said she, "suppose you assist as a little in preparing dinner, as we give a din ner party to day, and are very much hurried indeed. Just peel a few potatoes, if you please." No sooner was tho request made than the "old man" got to work peeling po tatoes with a right good will. After all things were suPucieutly advanced to release Mrs. T. from further supervision, she went into her chamber to arrange her toilet to receive her husband's guests. At the prop er hour her husband came in; and then, one by one, came those who with him on that day. In due time, all arived but one M. C. Mr. Topham then began to express his surprise at the absence of the Virginia representative, as ; he thought he certainly would have been the first, if nol the first, to make his appearance, knowing that his dinner at home was an early . one. When about coming to the conclusion that the Virgiuia M. C. would ail to make Lis ap pearance, Mrs. T's memory, which seemed to have proved rather treacherous, became efful gent ,nd she acquainted her husband with the fact that there was an "old man" in the kttch , en who had been waiting to see him for the last three or four hours. Mr. T. immediately repaired to the kitchen t ascertain the "old man's" wants, when 1 , and behold! who should he find but our M. C. himself! As tonished beyond measure, and with confused utterance, he exelaime.1, "How came you here?" He simply replied, "I was invited to the kitchen by your wife, aud as I came much before the dinner nour, i n i ... 'z:,, ; myself useful.'." Mr. T. at once invited and accompanied him into the parlor, and introduced him to his wife and guests as tho "Hon. Robert Ruther ford, of Viiginia. The lady's feelings can be better imagined by the reader than described by the writer; but the balance of the day passed olF pleas antly, saving the lady's abashment resulting , from not recognizing the Virginia Member of Congress. Condition of Mormon Women. An offi cer belonging to Col. Steptoe's command now stationed at Salt Lake City, in a letter to the the Providence Journal, thus speaks of the condition of the Mormon women: With a word about their melancholly con dition, I will bring my long letter to a close. 1 As a general thing, a woman here, having sat isfied what we call the "lust," but what the Mormons call "the holy desires," of some righteous elders, is left to shift for herself, not the least support does she receive from him to whom she has been in many cases forced to prostitute herself. Their condition is infinite ly wors than that of the slaves at the South. One of the wives of "the chief of tho Twelve Apostles" washes for a boarding-house here to support herself. Two wives of Parly P. Pratt, another apostle, hare repeateliy begged for work. Women here have told me that their pretended husbands have not visited them for month and years. One of the apos tles asked a family of three girls to marry him, and to gel theui he would take the old mother. They refused, and he has since maligned them every way. We receive many requests for assistance to leave from women in every position.
