The following letter was addressed by a member of Congress to Ins wife, din ing the administration of President John Adams. If d'scribcs a dinner at the Presidents House, and tjives a j (leasing illustration of the do mestic economy of that period : Philadelphia, June oth, 1707. My Dear Mariu I wrote you a few lines yesterday, and promised you a long letter by this day's mail. The grounds of vOcf promise were, that' hnving linel at the President's, I certainly could not lack for materials to com pose o very handsome letter indeed, and one of no small imp ortanoo. Our House were so earnestly engaged in debating the question 4 whether a mm has a right to defend himself when at tack id by robbsrs or assassin" that we did not adjourn until after 4 o'clock (the hour at watch we were to dine.) We there lore, went straight from the House of Repre sentatives to the Presidents and were introdu ced by name to the President, who shook us by the hand, and then he introduced us to Mis. Adams, who rose up to receive our bow. We then sat down, and the waiter handed round a glass of punch, which, permit me to say, wa very agreeable, after having sat for five long hours, hearing a very dry debate on a very clear subject. In a few minutes dinner was announced, and one of the gentlemen handed Mrs. AdamS into the dining room. The J 'resident followed, and the company followed him. Mrs. Adams sat at the head of the table, and the Secretary at the foot, and the President sat at one sib near the middle. The company took their seats alt ifether promiscuously, except that the Chap lain of our House, who said grace, sat at Mrs. Adams's right hand. Grace having heen said before we took our seats, We had nothing to do but to attend to our business. Uut here it is necessary to give a description of the bill of fare, and the arrangement of the board ; but I am very much afraid th:vt-d shall not only be inaccurate, but that I shall fail in giing a brilliant and interesting description of this important subject. As I wish, however, to be as good as my word, I shall attempt it. There were about 20 persons at table. The utensils were only common blue china plates, glass tumblers, and wine-glasses. The table was decorated or garnished with glass stands, five in number. On the two extremes were dishes of only common left ace or salad ; next to these, towards the centre, at each cud, was a piece of pastry work, resembling a large cake baked in a tin pan, and turned upside down and decorated with rose bods just opening. In the centre there was a large cake of the same forin, but it was iinaustated on the out side with a fine white frosted surface, spangled with sugar plums in the shape of cocked hats, radishes, A. -.-. The dishes were nine or ten in number, viz, at the head a piece of beef a la. mode ; at the foot, a large roast pig, then, alternately, fish, a leg of mutton, tongue, boiled fowls, ham, corn ed beef, a dish of small birds, chicken pie, and perhaps two dishes more; I cannot be certain. All these, however, were preceded by soup, not calf s-head, but common. The vegetables were peas, salad, potatoes new ones but very small, cranberry sauce. The desert: tarts, custards, jellies, ice cream, blanc mange, Strawberries, cherries, (very iior,) raisins, al monds, fce. And the wines: Madeira and Port. Mrs. Adams was very sociable, and helped to carve, fcc.The President carved the ham, which was before him, and was very at tentive to alibis guests. After a few glasses, Mrs. Adams withdrew with her daughter, Col. V. S. Smith's wife, who said nothing that 1 heard all the time she sat at table. We drank the United States, and then no toasts or senti ments, but did just :is we pleased, and took a I' rench leave when it suited. The President told the gentlemen, as he saw them retire, that there was cotl'ee above, if they chose it. The day was hot, and 1 believe but few went up. I sat until there were but three or four left, and then retired. Great Men's Dancing. We read that Napoleon was a very awkward dancer. On one occasion he danced with a very beauti ful countess, who could not conceal her biushes at his ridiculous postures. On lead ing her to her seat, he remarked: "The fact is, madam, that my forte lies not so much in dancing myself as in making others dance." This reminds us of an anecdote of Daniel Webster, who being present at a ball in Washington, during the period of Ids in cumbency as Secretary of State, was asked by an effeminate, foppish sort of a chap, who thought a good deal of his own dancing, "Don't you dance, Mr. Webster? I never see you dancing." "No," said Mr. AVcbstcr, as he only c uld say and look such things, "I uever had the capacity to learn how, sir!" Q. D. GIBBS. E. bowman.
