I^0VEipfS& Commencement of the Constitutional Gov*- ernment of the Initei States. Washington's Residence in Now York. .From ifte Ca*<ts Recollections and Private Memoirs of the Life and Character of Wash- ington. On the 30th of April 1789, the constitu- tional Government of the United States be- gan, by the inauguration of George Waslu ington as President of the United States, in the city of New York. In the then limited extent and improve. ment of the city, there wassome difficulty in selecting a mansion for the residence of the Chief Magistrate and a household, suitable to his rank and station. Osgood's house, a mansion of Very moderate extent, was at length fixed upon, situated in Cher- ry street. There the President became domiciled^ His domestic family consisted of Mrs. Washington, the two adopted chil- dren, ilfr. Lear as principal secretary, Col. Humphreys, with Messrs. Lewis and Nel- tion, secretaries, and Major William Jack- son, aid-de- camp. Persons visiting the house in Cherry street at this time of day will wonder how a building, so small could contain the many and mighty spirits that thronged its halls in olden days. Congress, Cabinet,all pub- lic functionaries in the commencement of the Government, were selected from the very elite of the nation. Pure patriotism, commanding talent, eminent services, were the proud and indispensible requisites for official station in the first days ofthe Repub- lic. The first Congress was a most enlight- ened and dignified body, In, the Senate were several ofthe members of the Con- gress of 1776 and signers ofthe Declaration of Independence, Richard Henry Lee, who moved the Declaration, John Adams, who seconded it, with Sherman, Morris, Carroll, &c. The levees ofthe first President, were at- tended by these illustrious patriots and statesmen and by many other of the patri- ots, statesmen, and soldiers who could say ofthe Revolution \ magna pars fui;\ while numbersof foreigners and strangers of dis- tinction crowded to the seat of the General Government, all anxions to witness the grand experiment that was to determine how much rational liberty mankind is ca- pable of enjoying, without said liberty de- generating into licentiousness. Mrs. Washington's drawing rooms, on Friday nights were attended by the grace and beauty of New York. On one of these occasions an incident occurred which might have been attended by serious consequen- ces. Owing to the. lowriess of the ceiling in the drawingroom, the ostrich feathers in the headfdressof .Miss Mclver, a belle of JSTew York, took fire from the chandelier, to the no small alarm of the company.— Major Jackson, aid-de-camp to the Presi- dent, with great presence of mind, and e- quel gallantry, flew to the rescue, and by clapping the burning plume between his hands, extinguished the flames- and the drawing room went on as usual. Washington preserved the habit, as well in public as in private life, of rising at 4 o'clock and retireing to bed at nine. On Saturdays he rested somewhat from his la- bors, by either riding into the country, at- tended by a groom, or with his family in his coach drawn by six horses. Fond of horses, the stables of the Presi- dent were always in the finest order, and his equipage excellent both in taste and quality* Indeed, so long ago as the days of the vice regal court of Lord Botetourt, ai Wiljiamsburgh, in Virginia, we find that there existed a rivalry between the equip- ages of Col. Boyd, a magistrate of the old regime, and Col. Washington, the greys against the bays. Bishop, the celebrated foody servant of Braddock, was the master of Washington's stables. And there were •what was termed muslin horses in those old days. At cock crow the stable boys were at work; at sunrise Bishop stalked in- to the stables,-a muslin'handkerchief in his hand, which he-applied to the coats ofthe animals, and if the slightest stain was per- ceptible upon the muslin, up went the luckless weights of the stable boys, and .punishment was administered instanter • for to the veteran Bishop, bred amid the iron discipline of European armies,' mercy for any thing like a breach of duty Wag al- together out ofthe question. The President's stables in Philidelphia were under the direction of German John, •an4 the grooming of the white chargers will rather surprise the moderns. The night before the horses were expected to be rode, they were covered entirely over with a paste of which whiting was a component part; then the animals were swathed in body clothes, and left to sleep on clean straw. In the morning the composition had become hard, was well rubbed in, and curried and brushed, which process gave to the coats a beautiful, glos3y, and satin like appearance. The hoofs were then black- ed and polished, the mouths washed, teeth picked and cleaned; and the leopard skin housings being properly adjusted, the white chargers were led out for service. Such was the grooming of ancient times. There was but one theatre in New York, in 1789, (in John Street,) and so small were its dimensions that the whole fabric might easily be placed on the stage of one ofour modern theatres. Yet humble as was the edifice, it possessed an excellent company of actors and actresses, including old Morris, who was the associate of Gar- rick, in the very outset of that great ac- tor's career at Gdodmansfields. The stage boxes were appropriated to the President and Vice President, and were each of them, decorated with emblems, trophies, &c.— At the foot ofthe play-bills were the words, \ Vivat Respublica.\ Washington often visited this theatre, being particularly grat- ified by Wignell's performance of Darby in the Poor Soldier. It was in the theatre in John street, that the national air of\ Hail Columbia,\ then called the President's March, was first played. It was composed by a German musician, named Fyles, President. The national air will last as long as the nation lasts, while the meritorious composer has been long since forgotten. It was while residing in Cherry street that the President was attacked with a se- vere illness, that required a surgical opera- tion. He was attended by the elder and younger Drs. Bard. The elder being somewhat doubtful of his nerves gave the knife to his son, telling him to cut away— deeper, deeper still; don't be afraid ; you see how well bears it. Great anxiety was felt in New York at this lime, as the Pres- ident's case was considered extremely dan- gerous. Happily, the operation proved successful, and the patient's recovery re- moved all cause of alarm. During the ill- ness a chain was stretched across the street, and the sidewalks laid with straw. Soon after bis recovery, the President set out on his intended tour through the New England States. The President's mansion was so limited in accommodation that three ofthe Secre- taries were compelled to occupy one room ; Humphreys Lewis and Nelson. Hum- phreys, aid-de-camp to the commander-in- chief at Yorktown, was a most estimable man, and at the same time a poet. .About this period he was composing his \ Widow of Malabar.\ Lewis and Nelson, both young men, were content, after the labors ofthe day, to enjoy a good night's repose. But this was often denied them ; for Hum- phreys, when in the vain, would rise from, his bed at any hour* and, with stentorian Voice, recite his verses. The young men, roused from their slumbers, and rubbing their eyes, beheld a great burly figure \ en chemise,\ striding across the floor, reciting with great emphasis particular passages of his poem, and calling on his room mates for their approbation. Having in this way fora considerable time \ murdered the sleep\ of his associates, Humphreys at length wea- ried by his exertions, would sink upon his pillow in a kind of a dreamy languor. So sadly were the young secretaries • annoyed by the frequent outbursts of the poet's imV aginat'on, that it was remarked of them by their friends, that from 1789 to the end of their lives.neither Robert Lewis nor Thom- as Nelson were ever known to evince the slightest taste for poetry. The mansion in Cherry street proving so Very inconvenient, induced the French Ambassador to give up his establishmet— McComb's new house in Broadway—for the accommodation of the President. It was from this house 1790 that Washington took his final departure from New York.— It was always his habit to endeavor, && much as possible, to avoid the manifesta- lions of affection and gratitude that met him every where. He strove in vain ; he was closely watched, a'nd the people would have their way. He wished to have slip- ried off unobserved from New Yods, and thus steal a march upon his old companions in 'arms. But there were too many of the dear glorious old Veterans of the Revolu- tion at that time of the day in and near New York to render such an escape even possible. The baggage had all been packed up ; the horses, carriages, and servants ordered to be o^er the Ferry in Paulus Hook by daybreak an ^ nothing was wanting for de- parture but the dawn. The lights were yet burning, when the President came into the room where his family were assembled, evidently much pleased in the belief that all was right, when, immediately under the windows, the band of the artillery struck up Washington's March. \ There,\ he exclaimed, \ it's all over: we are found out. Well, well, they must have their own way,\ New York soon after appeared as if taken by storm : iroops and persons of all description hurrying down Broadway toward the place of embarcation, all anx- ious to take a last look on him who so ma% ny could never expect to see again. The embarkation was delayed until all complimentary arrangements were com- pleted. The President, after taking leave of many dear and cherished friends, and many an old companion in arms, stepped into the barge that was to convey him from New York forever. The coxswain gave the word \ let fall ;\ the spray from the oars sparkled in the morning sunbeams ; the bowman shoved off from the pier, and as the barge swung round to the tide, Washington rose, uncovered in the stern, to bid adieu to the masses assembled on the shore ; he waved his hat, and in a voice tremulous from emotion, pronounced, fare- well. It may be supposed that Major Beuman, who commanded the artillery on the interesting occasion, who was first cap- tain of Lamb's regiment, and a favorite officer ofthe war ofthe revolution, would, when about to pay his last respects to his beloved commander, load his pieces with something more than mere blank cartridg- es. But ah ! the thunders of the cannon were completely hushed when the .mighty shout ofthe people arose that responded to the farewell of Washington. Pure from the heart it came ; right up to heaven it went, to call down a blessing upon the Father of his country. The barge had scarcely gained the mid- dle of the Hudson when the trumpets were heard at Paulus Hook, where the Govern- or and the chivalry of Jersey were in waiting to welcome, the chief to those well remembered shores. Escorts of cavalry relieved each other throughout the whole route, up to the Pennsylvania line ; every village, and even hamlet, turned out its light infantry, after some time, having opened a passage for the carriages. At the city Tavern, the President was receiv- ed by the authorities of Philadelphia, who welcomed the chief Magistrate of their city as to his home for the remainder of his 1 Presidential term, A group of old and long tried friends, were also in waiting.— Foremost among these, and first to grasp the hand of Washington, was one who was always nearest to his heart, a patriot ahd a public benefactor, Robert Morris. After remaining a short time in Phila- delphia, the President speeded on his jour- ney to that home where he ever found rest from his mighty labors, and enjoy the sweets of rural and domestic happiness amid his farms and at the fireside of Mount Vernon. y Onward, still onward, whirls the tide of time. The few who yet survive that re- member the Father of his country are fast fading away. A little while and their grey heads will all have dropped into the grave. May the reminiscences of one whom Wash- ington adopted in infancy, cherished in youth, and who grew up to manhood, uns der his parental care, continue to find fa- vor with the American people !

NEono COUNCIL..—Near the centre of Congo*') there is a little kingdom watered, by the river 'Lao, which runs from north to south. The negro king is a sage prince, and, very much beloved by his sub- jects. He has a numerous court, but it costs the nation nothing, because the arts and luxuries, are at .present unknown there; the result of which is, that a grandee of the country lives nearly in tbo same) manner as an honest laborer. Some idea of the simplicity uf manners there, may be formed from the way in which the sessions of the King's privy- council are held. In the midst of a vast plain is a large enclosure,formed of palms instead of columns: and in the midst of this verdant hall are placed a dozen of great jars, half full of water; a dozen councillors, quite naked, betake themselves to this spot with solemn pace: each jumps into his jar, and plunges in the water up to his neck. In this way they deliberate, and decide on the most impor- tant affairs. When opinions are divided, thoy put two stones, one red and one white, into a thirteenth empty jar ; the king draws ; and the opinion repre- sented by the slone which issues first, has the force of a law. the joys of peace, independence and happi- ness.

Greatly was she beloved in the army. Her many intercessions with the chiefs for the pardon of offenders ; her kindness to the sick and wounded ; all of which caused her arrival in camp to be hailed as an event that would serve to dis- sipate the gloom of the winter quarters. Arrived at the line, the Jersey escort was relieved by the cavalry of Pennsylva- nia, and, when near to Philadelphia, the President was met by Governor Mifflin and a brilliant cortege of officers, and escorted by a squadron of horse to the city. Con- spicuous among the Governor's suit, as well for his martial bearing as for the man- ly beauty of his person, was General Walter Stewart, a son of Erin, and' a ( gal- lant and distinguished officer ofthe Penn- sylvania line. To Stewart, as to Cadwal- lader, Washington was most warmly at- tached ; indeed, those officers were among the very choicest of the contributions of Pennsylvania to the army and cause of in- dependence. Miffiin, small in stature, was active, alert, ''every inch a soldier.\ He was a patriot of great influence in Pennsylvania in the\times that tried men's souls,\ and nobly did he exert that influ- ence in raising troops, with which to rein- force the wreck ofthe grand army at the close of the campaign of '76. Arrived within the city, the crowd be. came immense ; the President left his, carriage and mounted the white charger; and, with the Governor on his right, pro* ceeded to the city Tavern in Third Street, where quarters were prepared for him, the the earth, and blesses it with fertility, God has withheld, and thus brought all these evils, and many-more-which I need not stay now to enumerate, upon the land which once flowed with milk and honey.\— Lowthian's Visit to Jerusalem. A Yankee Wit. A Yankee, traveling in the Southern States, stopped at an inn for the night. He saw his horse well lodged in a barn, and entered the house, where he found a party of Southern gentlemen as- sembled on their return from a horse race. The Yankee during the evening amused the company with jokes. In the morning, on preparing to mount his horse to resume his journey, he found him too lame to proceed any farther. In this dilema, the South- eners met him' in the yard-, where they were pre- paring to mount sorne of their firia racers. Says one of the Southerner* to the Yankee, \ My friend, we have heard much of Yankee wits and tricks.; • do show us a trick before you leave us.'' The Yankee attempted 1 to assure them that he was not witty, nor had any tricks to exhibit, but in vain. Whereupon he Bays, \ Well, gentle_men, if you insist upon if, I _ will shpw you a trieji. Let any of you start as, he.pleases, and I will bet you a five spot that j willrun and jumf up behind.'' \ Done,\ cried several voices at once. One rider immediately 'Bet forward^at' speed,-— He found np Yankee oh the- crupper behind hiiri. He stopped to<claiiri the betj but theh> discovered that the Yankee had funafter'him—oh his Btartihg —fora few rods, and afterwards continued jump, ing Up in the air;' he was r jumpirig up behind.'— It was decided' that tho Yankee had won tho bet. \ Who cbutd riot do that 1 exclaimed the mortified Southerner, as he forked over the mon- ey. , . \ Yort can't.\ said the Yankee. \ I'll bet you rhy horse of that my lad j here mount him. Fliere start ahead.'' The Yankee mounted the horsey arid set for« Ward, at a steady pace. But just as the South- erner had run forward some rods, and was about The following remarks on society, are from the Portland Tribune, and should be read by all young people; GOOD SOCIETY.—It should be the aim of young men to go into society, by good society we mean not the rich, the proud and the fashionable, but the society of the wise, the intelligent and the good. Where you fiud men who knows more then you do, and from whose conversation you can gather infor- mation, it is always safe to be found. It has broken down many a man, by association with the low and vulgar; whero the ribald song was incul- cated and the indecent story told to excite laugh- ter, or influence the bad passion. Lord Clarendon attributed success and happiness in life, to associa. ting with persons more learned and virtuous than ourselves. If you wisk to be wise and respected, if you desire happiness and not misery, we advise you to associate with tho intelligent and the good. Strive for moral excellency and strict integrity, and you will never be found in the sinks of pollution, or on the benches of retailers and gamblers. Once habituate yourself to a virtuous course,once secure a love for good Bodiety, and no punishment would be greater than by accident, to be obliged for hall a day to associate with the low and vulgar. \Stillwell Act; Some of our exchange papers from oth> er States are enquiring what the \ Stillwell act\ is, not understanding its provisions or modus operandi. The principal provisions of the act are' the following : The statute provides for all cases tinct- ur.ed with fraud, thus : 1. When a party haying commenced a suit or obtained a judgment against an- other, he may arrest the person of the debtor. 2. When the debtor is about to remove any of his property out of the jurisdiction ot the court in which such suit was' brought with the intent to defraud his cred- itors — 3. When the debtor has property or rights in action which he fraudulently con- ceals —or rights in action, or any stock in any public or corporate company, money or evidences of debt which he unjustly refu- ses to apply to the payment of any judgs ments or decrees which shall have beefi obtained or rendered against him, belong- ing to complainant— 4.
