Jacks*,n and John Q Adams at President Monroe's levee, the night after Wv\ lection over Jackson for ibe Preei Jency ly the House of ller.rMtntative3 is from ? Goodrich s Recollections I shall pass over other individuals present ^nly noting an incident which respicts tae ,wo persons in the assembly, ?ho, most of all )thers, engrossed the thoughts of visitor#?Mr. Adams the elect, Uen. Jackson the defeated t chanced, in the course of the evening, that these two persons, involved in the throng, ap proached each other from opposite direction?, ?et without knowing it Suddenly, as they were almost together, the persons around, seeing what was to happen, by a sort of in stinct stepped aside and left them face to face Mr. Adams was by himself; Uen Jackson Th ^ '"go, handsome lady on his arm. They looked at each other for a moment, and tnen <ien Jackson moved forward, and reach ing out his long arm, said : "How do >ou do. Mr. Adams? I giTe you my left hand, for ttie right, as you see, is devoted to the fair; 1 hope you are very well, sir." All this was gallantly and heartily said and done Mr. Adams took the General's hand and said, with chilling coldness. ?? Very well, sir; I hope Gen. Jackson is well!" It was curious to see the Western planter, the Indian fighter, the stem soldier whohad written his country's giory h the blood of the enemy at New Or* leans, gonial and gracious in the midst of a court, while the old courtier and diplomat was stiff, ligid, cold as a statue! It was all the more remarkable from the faot, four hours be fore, the former had been defeated, and the latter was a viotor in a struggle for one of the highest oljects of human ambition. The personal character of these two indi viduals was in fact well expressed in that chance meeting ; the gallantry, the frankness and the heartiness of the one, which capti vated all ; the coldness, the distance, ihe self-concentration of the other, which repelled all. A somewhat severe but still acute an alyjt of Mr. Adsm's character, sajs : '? Un doubtedly the reason of his unpopularity, was Lis cold, antipathetic manner, and the suspicion of selfishness it sufcgeeted, or, at least aided grcaMy to confirm. None ap proached Mr. Adams but to recede H* never ?ucceeded?ho never tried to conciliate.' I recollect ap^ anecdoto somewbat illustra tive of this. When he was a candidate for the Presidency, his political friends thought it advisable that ho should attend a cattle show at Worcester, Massachusetts, so as to conciliate the numbers of influential men who might be present Accordingly he went, and there many Dersons were introduced to him, and amoDK tne rest a farmer of the vicinity? a man of subftance and great respectability. On being presented, he said : "Mr. Adams, i am very glad to see you. My wife, when she was a gal, lived in your fa ther's family ; you were theu a little boy, and she has told me a great deal about you. She has vory often combed your head." " Well," said Mr. Adams, in his harsh way, " I suppose she c?ml>s jours uow !" The p?x?r farmer slunk back like a 1 ashed hound, feel ing the smart, but utterly unoonscioua of the provocation. Thi Spectrk Fire San? ? Many, macy years ago, a ship named the Palestine, sailed from Holland, with a large number of passen gers, bound to a new home in North America &oon after leaving port, it became generally h*a,?y i?f th? "??e wealthy, and had a large amount ot gold and ' J6r '/L P ^eesion Three weeks elapsed, Captain and his crew concuivedthe Ln!!Un8 themselves by phmdering and murdering the inoffensive and *asuspi bious persons in their power. They fir-t fe pjrtea their provisions spoiled, but mana?M t > sel. hard buiscuita for a guinea es^ch. This preoess was at length suspended, and then disease and famine had full sway. l?he wind* were favorable, all were not yet dead, and lo! the (hip was floating off Bkok Iilaud. The few passengers who still survived might still live to tell their tale of woe, and so the ship muet be destroyed, with all her living freight. The captaia aad crew piled their i U-gotten wealth in their two yawls, and havLog scut tled and set fire to the ship, they eurJbarked for the neighboring island, they landed iust ae the great mass of ftaas saak bias lag into th* dmp, The pirates told the isle ^deri ?
