THE PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE OF DANIEL WEBSTER. The two volumes of the private correspon dence of Daniel Webster will be published by Little, Drown k Co , of Ronton, in the middla of next month. Anion*; the interesting letters embraced in the work is the following: THOMAS JRFPBRBON DESCRIBE!* KV DAKIKL WEI1ITKR De<k*tibt', lb24. Mr Jefferson is now between eighty-one and eighty two, above six loct high, of an ample, long lrame. rather thin ?nd spare. His bead, which is rot peculiar in it* shape, is pet rather forward on his shoulders ; and his neck heirs; long, there is, when he is walking or eon versing. an habitual protrusion of it. It is still well covered with hair, which, having been onoo red, and now turning gray, is of an indistinct sand}' color. Ilia eyes are small, very light, and now neither brilliant nor strikirg. His chin is rather long, but not pointed. His nose small, regular in its outline, and the nostrils a littlo elevated, liis qp>uth is well formed, and still filled with teeth ; it id strongly compressed, bearing an expression of contentment and be nevolenco. liis complexion, formerly light and freckled, now bears the marks of age and cutaneous afiection liis limbs are uncom monly long; his hands and feet very lart;c. and his wrifts of an extraordinary size Hi< walk is not precise and military, hut easy atd swinging, lie rtoops a little, not so much from age as from natural formation When sitting, he appears short, partly fioui a rather loung 1 ir.g habit of kitting, and partly from the dis proportionate length of his limbs ilia dress, when in the house, is a gray -ur t ?ut coat, kerseymere stuff waistcoat, wit** an under one laced with some material <>f a dingy red. H is pant ilooc.> are very lorg and loose, an 1 of the same color as his coat, ilia stock ings are woollen, either white or gray ; and his shoes of the kind that be*r his name liis whole dress is very much neglected. 1 ut not slovenly lie wears a common round hat ilis dress, when on horseback, is a gray straight-bodied coat, and a spencer of the samo material, both fastened with large pearl buttons. When we first e iw him. ho was riding; and. in addition to the above articles of apparel, wore round his throat a knit white woollen tippet, in the place of a cravat, and black velvet gaiters under his pantaloon9 liis general appearance indicates an extraor dinary degree of health, vivacity and spirit liis f ight is still good, for he needs glasses only in the evening Ilis hearingis generally good, but a number of voices in animated conversa tion confuse it Mr Jefferson rises in the morning as soon as ho can see the hands ot his clock, which is dircctly opposite his bed, and examines his thermometer immediately, as he keeps a reg ular meteorological diary, lie employs him self chiefly in writing till breakfast, which is at nine. From that time till dinner he is in I is library, excepting that in fair weather he rides on horseback from seven to fourteen miles. Dines at four, returns to the drawing room at six, when coffee is brought in, and passes the evening till nine in conversation His habit of retiring ut that hour is so strong that it hu.3 become essential to his uealth and comfort. Ilis diet is simple but he seems restrained only by his taste His breakfast is tea and c- ffee, bread always fresh from the oven, of which he does not seem afraid, with sometimes a slight accompaniment of cold meat He enjoys his dinner well, takii g with his meat a large proportion of vegetables He has a strong preference for the wines of the Continent, of which he has many sorts of ex cellent quality, having been more than com monly successful in his mode of importing and preserving them Among others we found the following, which are very rare in this country, and apparently not at all injured by trans portation : L Kdnau, Muscat, Samittn, and Lilanchette de Limoux. Dinner is served in half Virginia, half French style, in good taste and abundance. No wine is put on the table till the cloth is removed In conversation, Mr Jefferson is easy and natural, and apparently not ambitious ; it is not loud, as challenging general attention, but usually addressed to the person next to him The topics, when not selected to uuitthe char acter and feelings of his auditor, are those subjects with which his mind seems particu larly occupied ; and these, at present may be said to be science and le'ters, and especially the University of Virginia, which is oomitig into existence almost entirely from his exer tions, and will rise, it is to bo hoped, to use fulness and credit under his continued care. When we were with him him, his favorite sub jects were Greek and Anglo Saxon, historical recollections of the times and events of the Revolution, and of his residence in France from 1733-4 to 17Sy. MR JKFKRR80N SACCOUNT OF PATRICK HENRY 1 Patrick Henry was originally a bar keeper. He was married very young, and going into some business, on his own account, was a bankrupt before tho year w.ts out. When I was about the age of fitteec I left the school here to go to the college at Williamsburg. I stopped a few days at a friend's in the county of Louisa There 1 first saw and became ac quaintcd with Patrick Henry Having spent the Christinas holidays there, 1 proceeded to Williamsburg Some question arose about my admission, as my preparatory studies had not been pursued at the school connected with that institution This delsye 1 my admission about a fortnight, at which time Henry ap peared in Williamsburg .-aid applied for a license to practice law, having commenced the study ot it at or subsequently to the time of my meeting him in Louisa. There were four examiners, Wythe, Pendleton, Peyton Randolph, and John Randolph. Wythe and Pendleton at once rejected his application The two Randolphs, by his importunity, wcro prevuiled upon to sign the lisense ; and, hav ing obtained their signature?, he applied again to Pendleton, and after much eatreaty and many promises of future study, succeeded in obtaining his. lie then turned out for a prac ticing lawyer. The first case which brought him into notice was a contested ?lection, io which he appeared as counsel before a com mittee of the Houso of Durgesset. liis second was tho Parsons cause, already well known These and similar efforts soon obtained for him so much reputation that ho w.tf olected :i mem ber of the Legislature. He was as well suited to the times as any member ever was, uni it Is not now easy to say what we should h.ive done without Patrick Henry. He was tar be lore all in maintaining the spirit of the Revo lution. His infiuence was most extensive with the members from the upper counties, and his boldness and thoir votes overawed and con trolled the more cool or the more timid aristo cratic gentlemen of the lower part of the State His eloquence was peculiar, if indeed it should be callod eloquence; for it was im pressive and sublime, oeyond what can be imagined. Although it was difficult when he had spoken to tell what he had said, yet, while be was speaking it always seemed di rectly to tho point When he had spoken in opposition to my opinion, had produced a great cffect, and I myself been highly de lighted and moved, I bavo asked myself when he ceased, i( What the devil has he aaid ?" 1 could never answer tha inquiry. His person was of full sise, and hia manner and voice free and manly, llii utterance neither very fast nor very alow. His eP??5hef generally Bhort, from a quarter to half an hour.

On one or two occasion* i have seen him angry and hia anger was terrible, thoee who wit nested it were not disputed to rouae it again In his opinions he was yielding and practica ble and not disposed to differ from hit friends In private conversation he wu agreeable ana facetious, and, while in genteel society, ap peared to understand all the deoenclaa and proprieties of it; but. in his heart, be pre. terred low society, and Bought it a# often as possible. He would bunt m the pine woods of Fluvanna, with overseers, and people of that description, living in a camp tor a fort night at a time without a change of raiment. 1 have olten been astonished at his command f proper language , how ha attained a know ledge of it I never could find ont. aa ha read so little and convereel little with educated men After all, it must be allowed that he waa our leader in the measures of the Revolution, in Virginia. In that respect more was due to him than a*y otr er person If we had not hud him we should probably have got on pretty well, as you di<\, by a number of men i f nearly equal talents, but be left us all far beiiind. His bi<igrapber aei.t the sheets ot lus work to me a* they were printed, and at the end asked for my opinion 1 told him it would be a question her alter, whether his w?rk should be placed on the shelf of hist* ry or of pnnegyric. It is a poor book written in bad t.itte. and gives ao imperfect an idea of 1'atrick Henry, that it seems intended to ahow ? ff tiK- writer more than the subject of the vork. MR.

He has had very littlo respect for luWS or oonsti tutions. and is, in fact, an able military chief His passions are terrible. When I w*?
