Men and Times of the Revolution," or Memories of Elkanah Watson, we clip the following account of an interview with Wash ington and hid family : 441 had feasted my imagination for several day? is the near prospect of a visit to Mount Vernon, the seat of Washington. No pilgrim evor appronohed Mecca with deeper enthu siasm. 1 arriver there in the afternoon of January 23, 1785. I was the bearer of the letter from General Green with another from Col. Fitzgerald, on* of the former aids of Washington; and also the books from Gran ville Sharp. Although assured that these credentials would secure me a respectful re ception. I felt an unaccountable diffidence as I came into the presence of this great man I found him at table, with Mrs. Washington and his private family, and was received in the native dignity, with that urbanity so pe culiarly combined in the character of a'soldier and eminent private gentleman lie soon put me at ease, by unbending in a free and affable conversation. The cautious reserve which wisdom and policy dictated whilst en gaged in rearing the fabric of our indepen dence, was evidently the result of consum mate prudence, and not characteristic of hid nature Although I had frequently seen him in the progress of the Revolution, and had corresponded with him from France in 'til and 82, this was the first occasion on which I had contemplated him in his private relations. 1 observed a peculiarity in his smile which seemed to illuminate his eje ; his whole coun tenance beamed with intelligence, while it commanded confidcnce and respect The gen tleman who accompanied me from Alexandria left in the evening, and I remained alone in the enjoyment of the society of Washington, for two of the richest days of my life. I saw him reaping the reward of his illustrious deeds, in the quiet shade of bis beloved re tirement Ho w*s at the matured age of fifty-three. Alexander and Caesar both died bef^ro they bad reached that period of life, and both had immortalized their names How much stronger and nobler the claims of Wash ington to immortality! Iu the impulses of mad aud selfish ambition they acquired fame by wading to the conquests of the world through seas of blood Washington, on the contrary, was parsimonious of tho blood of his countrymen, and stoc.d forth the pure and vir tuous champion of their rights, and formed for thorn (n<>t himself; a mighty republic. To have cotuiuui'vd with such a man in the bosom of his family, I shall always regard a* one of the highest privileges and cherished inci dents of my life. I found hiiu kind and be nignant in the domestic circle, rovcrcd and beloved by all around him ; agreeably social without ostentation; delighting in anecdote and adventures, without assumption ; his do mestic Arrangements harmonious and system atic. His servants seemed to watch his eye, and to anticipate his every wish ; hence a look was equivalent to a command. His ser vant Lilly, tho faithful companion of his mili tary carecr, was always at nis side. Smiling content animated and beamed rn every coun tenance in hi? presence The fir?t evening I spout un j' r the wing of his hospitality, we sat 3 full hour at tabic by ourselves, without the lcost interruption, after the family had retired I was extremely oppressed by a se vere cold and excessive coughing, contracted by tho exposure of a harsh winter journey lie pressed me to use some remedies; but I declined doing so. As u?ual, after retiring my coughing increased When some tiiae had elapsed, the door ef my room was gentiy opened, and on drawing my bed curtains to my utter astonishment I beheld Washington himself standing at my beside with a bowl of tea in his hand. This little incident, occur ring in common life, with an ordinary man would not have been noticed, but as a trait of the benevolence and private virtue of Washington, deserves to be recorded." A Million-ani>a-Half or Charitt ?We notice by the reports of what are termed "The Religious Societies,which are about toholdiheir annual glorifications in this city, that during the past year over sixteen hun dred thousand dollars have been collectod by the various associations, for converting the heathen, abolishing slavery, spreading the Jospel, distributing tracts, ameliorating the ews, "healing rotten morals, Ac , <tc. Now, if all this vast sum. sucked from the religious ly charitable in email driblets, or drawn from the pockets of the piously ostentatious in larger lump?, hat' really been appropriated to the alleviation of human want, offering and sin, it would be a matter of public rejoicing and commeudation. Rut wc fear that a larj:e per centagc of this magnificent "collection " has been expended upon rents, salaries, mileage, <tc., Ac , of tho sleek and compla cent ? fliciais?the sclf-constituted beggars and almoners ot the ch;irii:cs of the community : and that but a small portion of the funds re Jiorted has over reached the mouths of the ungry, the backs of thenaked, or tho wounds and bruises of the dying. Real charity?the charity urged by Jesus Christ, begins at home ?exteuds first to the neediest next neighbor ; and then widens as means allow, to the wants and necessities of those who appeal to our eyes, as well as to cur hearts, as the bleeding wounds of the way side sufferer appealed to the passing Samaritan.?New Yuri Mirror Interesting to Flour Speculators ?The Detroit Advertiser makes the followiug state ments, which may be. a word in season to those who are holding on to their flour and grain in the expectation of getting higher p:ice3 for it: " A firm in this city, whose name we could casily^ive, have shipped to New Vork since last harvest, about 30,000 barrels of dour, all of which was bought for and shipped to the English marketi. This flour is still undisposed of in England, and letters were received by the steamer Persia, from the English huuse which holds it to the New York house by whom it was purchased (in connection with which the house in this city operates,) stating that much of the flour is unfit for human food, that they dare not placo it upon the market, and cannot do so except at a very great loss The letter also states that the loss which will be sustained in this unfortunate business will ex ceed S2 per barrel, besides the relinquishment of all interest and commissions, and asks the New York house to sustain a portion of the loss. We give the facts exactly as they come to us, for the truth of which so far as the Ut ters are concerned, we are able to vouch. Those who are holding flour and wheat for higher prices can draw their ownconclusions " Singular Development of Intuitive Per ception ?A lady of this city, sajs the Ros ton Ree, who is well and favorably known, both in this country and Europe, as possessing some remarkable powers, has recently discov ered, by mere accident, the singular faculty of perceiving, by the simple contact e>f tl>e hand, the locality and nature of a person's disease, and by the same curious power is en dowed 'with the faculty of prescribing the remedy. The accuracy of her descriptions and prescriptions has created no little sensa tion among the few who have been so fortunate as to test her rare powers. A Mother's Lov* ?The intensity of ma ternal affection was wellilh 'rated in thfc ob servation . f a sweet little boy, who, after reading " Pilgrim's Progress," asked bis mother which of the characters she liked best She replied, '? Christian, of course ; he is the hero of the story." He responded : 411 like Christiana best, because when Christian set out on his pilgrimage be went alone, but when Christiana started she took her children with her." It Made me feel Independent A man named Porter sat* he onoe had a clerical friend between whom end himself there existed great intimacy. Every Satur day night. as Porter wu tilting balancing his cash, a note woald come, requesting " the loan of a fivt dollar kill V* The mon?*y wae al way- returned punctually at eight o'etoek oa the Monday morning. But what puttied the lender was, the Parson always returned the ?ery identical note he borrowed Since he had diseovered this fact he had made private mark.* on the note ; ttill the same was Landed back on Monday morning. One Saturday evening Porter sent back a live dollar fold piece, instead of a note, and marked it Still the very same coin waa returned on the Mon day Porter got nervous and bilious about it ; he could not aleep at night for thinking <4 it; he would wake his wile in the middle of the night and ask her what she thought of such a strange occurrence. lie was fast boil ing over with cariosity, when a note ram* from the reverend berrover, one Christmaa eve, asking for the loau of ten dollars. A brilliant thought struck our friend He put on his great coat, resolving to eall, and de? mand an explanation of the mystery When be was shown into his friend's study he found him plunged in the profoundeet melancholy " Mr ???,'* said our friend, " if you will answer one question I will let you have the ten dollars. " How does it happea that you always re pay me the money you borrow on the Saturday night in the very same coin or note on Men* day f" The parson raised his head, and after a violent struggle, as though he were about to unveil the hoarded mystery of his soul, said, in faltering tones, ?? Porter, you are a gentle man, a scholar, a christian, and a Sew York er I know I can rely on your inviolable ae crccy. Listen to to the secret of my elo quence. You know that I am poor, and when 1 have bought my Sunday dinner I hare sel dom a red cent in my pocket. Now, 1 main tain that no mau can preach the Gospel and blow up his congregation properly without he has got something in his pocket to inspire him with confidence. I have therefore borrowed five dollars of you every Snnday that I might feel it occasionally as i preached on Sunday. You know Low independently I do preach? how I make the rich shake in their shoes; well, it if all owing to my knowing that I have a five dollar bill in my pocket! Of course, never having to use it for any other purjfete, it is not changed, but invariably returned to you the next morning. Mow, aa Mr. George Law is coming to hear me preach to-morrow, i thought I would try the effect of a ten-dellar bill sermon on him!" Col Fbbmokt.?The Montgomery (Aia ) Mail, speaking of Col Fremont, sc^s ?

Fremont wai dis covered to have talent, and by the interest of these sauio ladies became the beneficiary of ? charity scholarship in Charleston College. He was graduated there with distinction, having shown, as we always heard, deoidei mathe matical talent.

For some little time Frank made a sensation and got to be called the ' Charleston Koscius?but gradually came to be coiuid crcd merely a tolerable stock actor.

And tbero are other articles of chamber furn i-uie. which are here deemed indispencable, that should also be adopted by other countries. A Stranger at Hour ?A gentleman from Australia, for Salem, his native place, says the Newbnryport Herald, came down in the cars from Boston to South Reading, on Satur day evening, who had been so long absent that he was a stranger to his kindred and his homo He bad been gone twenty-two years ; and at one period, for seven successive yeare, did not receive a letter from this country.
