In 1755 twenty years before the brilliant era which shines like a rich gem in the pages of the world's history a gentleman named Beverly Robinson, occupied a dwelling (sit uated in New York,) which, at that time, was considered a model of elegance and comfort, although, nccording to the prevail ing taste of the present day, it was nothing of the kind. It was standing, very little altered from its original condition, six years ago, oo this side of the Hudson river, with ic two or three miles of West Point. Mr. Robinson enjoyed all the luxuries known to the colony, aud some, beside, which the other T7 AniT n II il enma Itfkci.lja t-ViiiK I Vi a rki.w colonists did not know for instance, a rich earl niannoo.i ueyeny noumson, and massive tea urn, said, by the gentleman's i was 'be colonel of the Royal American regi--?0on.r.o i, ,.;! r .;,ment raised in this State, and his son was kind, and for a long time the only one, used in this countrv. In thia dwelling, sonmch admired, theVpace between thefloors and ceiling was exceedingly low, and in many of the rooms (set off, about the fire-pl.iccs, bv polished tiles,) the rafters were massive and uncovered, and all things else in the struc ture were exceedingly primitive. In this house wer9 bon. or reared ahroodoftho most prominent and inveterate foes to the patriots of the American Revolution, and the object of that struggle, that history men tions. Two generations of the Robinson family bore arms and held office in the ar mies of the English King, and fought deter minedly against our sires and grandsires.

'Pray, friend Washington, may we be made arquait.ted with the causo of your dullness? Thc-re is some reason for it, and that reason lies with us. Tell it.' In vain the colouel argued that nothing had occurred to vex him .h.t ho was not j In want of any farther inducement to present for future happiness; his entertainers would not regard his words, but continued their pertinacious endeavors to sol ye this mystery. At length, wearied by importunity, Wash ington then twenty j-ears before his great r.ess leaned over the table, played with his glass, attempted to look unconcerned, and whispered to Mr. Robinson the siuglo word Mary,' 'Yes?' responded Mr. R., interrogatively, as if unable to comprehend Washington's meaning. 'Is she well? Does she still abide with you? 'She does,' replied tho lady of the man sion. Washirgton again becamo apathetic and contemplative, while several significant glances passed between the geutleman and his wife. Some five minutes were spent in perfect silence, which was only interrupted by the exit of Mrs. R. from the apartment. She speedily returned, accompanied by a beautiful young lady, whom Washington, with a countenance beaming joyfully, arose to greet with becoming respect. The young lady was Mary Phillipse, sis ter of Mrs. Rohinson, and daughter of the owner of the Phillipse estate. It was perhaps, singular, but the time of her appearance, aud the period of the return of Washington's cordiality, was identical. Strange as it was, too, midnight found this young lady and the Virginia colonel alone. The conjugal twain who had kept them company iu the early part of the evening had retired to their bed-chamber. More re markable than all, daylight found still this couple togpther. The candles were buried down to the sockets of the sticks, and the fire-place, instead of exhibiting a cheerful blaze, harbored only a gigantic heap of ashes and a few dying embers. What could have prolonged that interview? Not mutual love; for the parties preserved a ceremonious dis tance, and the young lady evinced a hauteur that could be matched only by her compan ion in after year. And yet the truth must be told. There was love on ono sue; the colonel, smitten by the graces and rare ac complishments of a lady as beautiful as na ture's rarest works, was endeavoring to win her heart in exchange for his own. He made his confession just at tba cold grey of the dawn of morning broke up the dark clouds in the east. Ho confessed, in cautious and measured terms; it is true, the extent of his passion, and avowed what it was bis earnest hope would be the result; that was the gain ofberhand. The lady hesitated. Was it the ni-desty of the maiden who dares not to trust her lips with the confession of affection it'is her heart's desire to make? No! She respected, although she did not love her in terlocutor, and she felt diffident in making known to him the true 6tate of her feelings. At last candor triumphed over delicacy, and she informed Washington in 6et terms that she loved another! She refused him! The reatest of modern men was vanquished, land by a woman! He was speechless and I cowerless. Tremblin g, with compressed lips and a countenance ashy pale, be crept from the place just as the old negress of the house hold entered to make preparations for the breakfast. He sought his room, threw him self upon his couch, dressed as he was, and lapsed into a troubled sleep. The only vic tory ever won at his expense penetrated him to the soul. He was unhappy supremely wretched! The future conqueror of thou sands of brave men suffered because he h;id been rejected bv a female. This was his first, but not his last wooing Years rolled on upon the mighty tide of: time.

I know all that you will say: you will speak of his virtues his sisters his rank, and his ex tenuating circumstances; perhaps endeavor to convince me of his innocence.' Robinson struggled with his emotions a few seconds, but unable to repress his feel ings, he spoke but a single word, with such thrilling accent that he started at the sound of his own voice. That word was George. 'General Washington, Colonel Robinson,' responded the great patriot, laying great stress on each military title. 'Enough,' said the other. I have one more argument if that fails me I have done behold my friend!' Your friend! Who is he? What is his name?' One other single word was spoken as the heavy cloak in which the mysterious friend was clothed, fell to the floor, and exposed the mature figuro of Mr. Morris, and that word, uttered with a start by Washington, was Mary. The suspense was painful, but brief. Sir,' said Washington, instantly recover ing, 'this trifling is beneath your station and my dignity. I regret that you must go back to Sir Ilanry Clinton with the intelligence that your best intercession has failed. See that these persons are conducted beyond the lines in safety,' continued he, throwing open the door of the apartment, and addressing one of his aids. Abashed and mortified. Mr. Robinson and his sister-in-law took their leave. The wo man had gained a conquest once, but her second assault was aimed at a breast invul nerable. Who is Damaging the Union Cause iu the South-Pulpit Politics. The following, which we take from the National Advertiser of Juty 2, a Union pa per published at New Orleans, under the auspices of our army, will be read with in terest. It says: "The proclamations of Fremont, Phelps Hunter have done much to weaken the cause of the United States. The President's proclamation annulling tho?e of the three Generals is doing much good. What ismost wanted is the exclusion 0 politics from the pul pit. The reverened gentlemen occupying the different pulpits should connne their la bors to spiritual matters, allowing all men to go to heaven in their own way. This terrible war was brought about by those wearing clearical robes at the North, and if those of similar calling at the South had not been provoked into a course equally adverse to common sense and public good, there would not now be that misery which per vades the whole community, North and South." It is the exclusion of politics from the pulpit in the North which is most wanted bv the Union men of the South. Will Northern patriots see that is done? A Fling at Dressing Gowns. My name is Albert Fling. I am an ac tive, buainess, married man, that is wedded to Mrs. Fling, and married to business. I had the misfortune, some time since, to break a log; and before it was mended, Madame Fling, hoping to sooth my hours of con valescence, caused to be made for me a dress ing gown, which, on due reflection, I believe was modeled alter the latest style of straight jacket.

The third time I was blacking my boots, according to Dr. Howl's advice "expands tho deltoid muscles, is of benefit to the metacapis, stretches the larynx opens the oilosophagers and facilitates expectoration!' I had chosen what Fanny called her con servatory for my field of operation (tha conservatory has two dried fish-geraniums and a dead dog rose in it, and a bad smell ing cat nip bush,) when who should come running in but tho identical Miss X t who caught me shaving. 'Poor Fannj'I'said she. before Icould turn round, 'do you black the boots of that odious brute?' 'Miss X said I, turning toward her folding my arms over my dressing-gowm spite of having a damp, unpolished boot ont one arm and a wet blacking-brush in the other hand, for I wished to strike a position and an awe at the same time1, 'MissX 1 am that odious brute himself.' If you had observed her wilt, droop, stut ter, fly. My wife went to the sea shore last sum mer. I kept the house open, and staid in town; cause, business.

Headquabtebs Department of the Golf, New Orleans, July 2, 1862. Mr Dear Sir: I am as iealous of the good opinion of my friends as I am careless of the slanders of my enemies, and your Kind expression in regard to Order No. Zo led me to say a word to you on the subject. That it ever could have been so miscon ceived as it ha3 been by some portions of the Northern press is wonderful, and would lead one to exclaim with the Jew, "O, Fa ther Abraham, what these Christians are, whose own bard dealings teach them to sus pect the very thoughts of others." What was the state of things to which the women order applied? We were two thousand five hundred men, in a city seven miles long by two to four wide, of a hundred and fifty thousand in habitants, qll hostile, bitter, defiant, explo sive, standing literally on a magazine a spark only needed for destruction. The devil had entered the hearts of the women nfithis town (you know seven of them chose Mary Magdalen for a residence.) to stir up strife in every way possible. Every oppro brious epithet, every insulting gesture was made by these beieweled . becrinolined and laced creatures, calling themselves ladies, towards my soldiers and officers, from the windows of houses and in the streets. How long do you suppose our flesh and blood could have stood this without retort? That would lead to disturbances and riot, from which we must clear the streets with artil lery and then a howl that we had murder ed these fine women. I had arrested the men who hurrahed for Beauregard. Could I arrest tho women? No. What was to be done? No order could bo ma3o save one that would execute itself. With anxious, careful thought I hit upon this: "Women who Insult my soldiers are to be regarded and treated as common women plying their vocation." Pray how do you treat a common woman plying her vocation in the streets? You pass her by unheeded. She can not insult you! As a gentleman, you can and wi'l take no notice of her. If she speaks, her words are not opprobrious. It is only when she becomes a continuous and positive nui sance that you call a watchman and give her in charge to him. But some of the Northern editors seem to think that whenever one meets such a wo man, one must stop her, talk with her, in sult her, or hold dalliance with her, and so from their own conduct they construed my order. The editor of the Boston Courier may so deal with common women, and out of the abundance of the heart his mouth may speak, but so do not I. Why, those she adders of New Orleans themselves were at once shamed into pro priety of conduct by tho order, and from that date no woman has either insulted or annoyed any live soldier or officer, and of a certainty no soldier has insulted any wo man. wncn i passea tn rough. Baltimore on the 23d of February last, the members of my staff were insulted by the gestures o'f the ladies there. Not so in New Orleans. Ono of the worst possible of all these wo men showed disrespect to the remains of gallant young Da Kay, and you will see her punishment, a copy of the order which I enclose, is at once a vindication aud a con struction of my order. I can only say that I would issue it again under like circumstances. Again thanking you for your kind interest, I am, truly your friend, BENJ. F. BUTLER, Major General Commanding. A Specimen of the Liberty of the Press Allowed Republican Journals The Quiucy (Illinois) Tribune, a German Repub lican paper, lately contained the following article: 'The American nation bleeds just now under the blows of the Nemesis for the crime of slavery, which both sections are guilty of. With every new blow, with every death news that reaches the parental bouse, a spark of enlightenment comes, and our youth dies and bleeds, therefore, not in vain. The longer the chastisement lasts, tho more thoroughly will be the change. A good deal has happened already. The army has be come Abolitionized, and is becoming more so from day to day. She would long ago have run home, if she could, as her officers. The answer to the President's call for 200, 000300,000 will be a terrible verdict for his war policy. Every body will remain home, and the border States had well look to their self-defense. For from the Admin istration we need not look for protection against Jackson's columns. She will be forced to conscription, and then the people will feel how foolish it is to refuse the arm of the negro that has been offered. We hope then to get an infamous peace, a mediation of France and England, as in Mexico, and then a forced conscription is as impossible as the arming of the negro. The financial misery will do ber share, and then well, then we hope to have a change ic Government, either by abdication or im peachment.' If there is any such thing a3 treason in j words, it is certainly found in abundance in j that article. We venture to say, however, that not one English Republican paper will condemn it. They shut their eves to such ( manifestations, but engage in the mora con-; gouiai huih ui biauuenng painouu crats. Further from Port Royal.

On the evacuation of the Island, tha men had to carry shells to the boats, weighing 83 pounds, whioh work caused some of them to drop down. From the Richmond Enquirer, July 1 An Incident of the Late Battles. The Yankees are distinguished for the tenacity with which they cling to a pre sumptuous hope. On tho day when tha battles was set in motion that put to flight the Federal army around Richmond, sever al of their officers were discussing the na ture of the operations in the Valley. One of them was expatiating learnedly upon the predicament in which Jackson was suppos ed certainly , to be, and was engaged in making a diagram on the smooth earth io the yard of one of the farm-houses in which, they were quartered, and, "suiting the ac tion to the word," was demonstrating that "here was Jackson," "there was Fremont," "here, again, was Shields," and "there was the army of McDowell," and. "consequent ly, it was impossible for Jackson to make) his escape!'' Befoio the sanguine officer had ceased the disauisi'ion the roar of Jackson's artillery began to ba beared, and a ball came pounding away into the very house uelore which they were standing. The battle commenced, the defeat succeed ed, and among the prisoners brought in by the invincible hero's troops was the identi cal officer who bad convinced himself, and was convincing those arouud him, that ho was not within a hundred mues oi me place. fr7-The energies of the Irish laborers in some of theNorthern cities are taking wrong directions. The negroes are not to blame for workinsr for low wasos. They must either work, starre or steal, and it is decid edly to their credit that they are willing to work for low wages in preference to pilfer ing. The Irish may be certain that tue negro will rt9pI ns hi(?h wases as he can. and that he does not work for the love of the thing. Ofeonrao manufacturers will employ those who will do their work best for the least money, and if the negro, rather than starve, will work for less than tho Irish, capitalists will employ tha negro. This is a settled law of political economy and common sense. The superfluous muscle of the Hibernians had better be expended upon tha Abolition politicians, whose pestiferous agitations have assisted in producing tho war which is ruin ing the country, and whoso policy has created so considerable aa influx of negroes into the free States. Ifany class deserves to be kicked about this matter that class is the Abolitionists, and the best sort of kick ing to give them is to kick them out of of fices which they only fill to disgrace them and to bring untold calamities upon the peo ple.
