From the Wash. Cor. of the U. S. Gat, AN INTERESTING WIDOW. I notice anions the crowd of falh- ion that flitted through the Avenue, a widow lady, whose history is o singular and whose personal charm are so attrac tive, that I linger wit!) wonder over the first, and with honest afid devoted admira tior. over the latter. This lady is sjot yet on the other side of five and thirty years, and yet she has hnd and lost four husbands! and what is more extraordinary, they all died ol violence. The lira husband was killed in rowing a regatta between London Bridge and Sho reditch. He was on board the wiHnlng barge, the Lady StanhomSj when a mm in ibe losing barge, the IJiike of Suffolk, struck him with the blade of an oar, in a moment of irritation, and the poor fellow tiied in a few days afterwards. The wife And widow, of course went into weeds, and retired to the rural scene of Warwickshire, where she resolved (o spend the remain der of her days in seclusion. It did so happen, however, that a gallant and dash in? Major, attached to the 84th recriment of his Majesty's Infantry, found bis way and, although her grief was excessive, sincere and unqualified, alio could not, for the soul of her, resist his eloquence, as he threw himself at her feet and desjaoted with1 all the eloquence of a Tully, and in the mingled cadences and sentence of tho philosopher and the Platonic lovei, of the delights of a "fourth estate" in the world 6f beauty. He talked of love, and honor and chivalry; swore that he lived but to dore her, and ready to meflt the noblest and the most gallant Knight that the world could afford, at the tournament, and win the favor of his lady love, by trial by battle. The lady listened, lingered, and wept and rejoiced over the passion of her lover t and at last cast aside ber weeds, ad jured the Sylvan scenes of Warwickshire; gave her hand to the gallant Major, and set up an cstablishmtnt in the Moor Fields Finishing Square. A few montha after her union with the Major, she accompanied him on an oxcur aion to Belgium. While at Brussels, they Dent ao avenint? in the Library of the . Orange palace, and the lady received, as Tt s ubeequentlj sHipposca, an Unimex tienal insutt.at .the hands of an Austrian Colonel. The Major was impetuous ; in a paroxysm of madness,, he tpat in the fare of the offender. Usual cards were forth with excbanged,and the sequel was a duel on the. banks of the Soinne. At.tbe first fire, the Major fell morally wounded, and scarcely had time, to - cprmend his wife to the protection of ah trjin Admiral, then at Brussels, before hs surrendered ' . " , hi noftort to lb world again, Hi blessed part to Heaven, and slept in peace."" Again w'eirc wee's aHd seclusion re sorted to by the unfortunate lady; and she had resolved nt one time to enter a Monastic institution, and devote her self to the rosarv and cross; but eie the could carry bcr rash designs into eie cution, a Scotch merchant of Glasgow, a man distinguished .Wr hjS wealth and commercial cnterpriie', whOiaccident ally happened lobe in Brussels, sought, wooed, . and won her already twice widowed heart. They were married at the Hotel de Vilte, and soon after emigrated to London. The husband, not more than a morittt alter his mar riage, was called by imperious business to Scotland ; and leaving his wife at her establishment in the Mobr l-ields, sail ed in the ill-fated Rothsay Castle Stea mer for the North. With that Unfor tunate Tcssel he went "down lb the bottom"' of the 'Deep deep Sea;" and from that disastrous day, no fond hope of the ultimate restoration of his lifeless form, has greeted the anxious ear of love and ntlcction. But the widow was not destined to remain in her "third estate" of weeds and angu ish. Sir Charles S , about the period of the widow1! third widowhood, returned to London, Hushed with sue cets and possessed of wealth abundant, fresh from Coromandel. He sought and found the widow of the Moor Fields, affile was then familiarly designated; and it is scarcely necessary to say, that dashing and gallant soldier was soon became the "Commissioner Lord, and Master" ff the young widow's heart. Soon after the marriage of Sir Charles with the widbw it might have been eight or ten months afterwards he was ordered off on a diplotftatiaue mis sion to the German S'dlts; and whilst mnkingajourncy fromLubc'c to Frank fort, on the Mayne, in a stage coach, the vehicle was assailed by robbers, and Sir Charles, and all tho immates of the carriage, were brutally murder ed. The wife, now once more a wid ow, had remained in England, and was left to weep over the death of a fourth hitsbandj who, like his predeces sors, had fallen" before tho hand of vio lence. . ' , , - , I met fliis lady in Florence and in Rome; some few years ago. She was then intimate at the Villa cTthe Mar- ?m of Hastings, and it was there that first learned her extraordinary story. Yesterday,! met her in Pennsylvania Avenue, and to my surprise she recog nized me. She remains in the City but a few days, however, and Js ricw on her way from the city o'f Mexico to London. She is beautiful, and though her life has been chequered by melan choly and disastrous incidents, she ap pears not to have lost any of her pris tine buoyancy of spirit! HOT-have the United attacks of time and sorrtw made nnv material impression on the ele gance of her forin, or the brilliancy of her personal beauty. In reply to a good natured remark that I made in relation to the sweets of I matrimony, she said, "1 knffw but little of the raptures on which you dilate there wat a time when I could appreci ate them; but I suppose that if I listen to your sex, I shall be oVfiged to take another husband. Bnt, ah me! 1 dread the idea, for it appears to me that some fatality attends me; all, all die whom I love; and the man who takes me next, must possess more courage than the Austrian troops did at JenaT' I do not doubt, that the widow, ere the lapse of a couple of months, will have her fifth husband! Said a gentleman to a boy who was him with a bill. 44 You need't bothering h dun me so sharplv, Tm not going to run away at pcesent."
