The former will Iw rememl>ered as the Star's fair, bright-eyed and piquant little corres|x>udent who used to perambulate Pennsylvania avenue wearing the Bloomer breeches, and to lecture on the rights of women and the wrongs of men so eloquently in Temperance Hall, on E street. Who that drank in her words of wisdom (with out peeping into ber devil-mav-care womanish countenance for a' that) would have imagined that the Doctor could have actually condescended to have a baby, aod that, too, ''square up to time,'* as they say in sporting circles. Doctor' Doctor ! ! Doctor ' !! we blush to record the fact, that your entrancing philosophy failed to prove sufficient to save you from going the?way of other llesh feminine.? Washington Star. Remark? ?Now. friend Wallach, you are not much of a physiognomist, or you would not begin your first fatherly admonitions by instructing us to do so great injustice to our baby as shaking its ideas all in a confuted medley l?v continually rocking it in the cradle. J ust remember we are posted on these things, and feel a little egotistical in the premises. Yes, Dr. Sayrr Hasbrouck has not forgotten her old friend, the Star, nor has she lost remembrance of the many pleasant walks taken on the various avenues and streets of Washington. Strong and free she threaded them in sensible dress, with pants, just as she hopes again to do, ere she leaves, tiiis busy sphere of actlou, with that yrtrious baby by her side Then look out, friend Wallach. when we call in the Star sanctum, (which we most assuredly shall.) for the safety of your locks; for, of a surety, you will find our baby a bouncing, bright-eyed, frol icsome little elf. whose chief delight consists in pulling hair and twisting nasal protuberances, sometimes much to the discomfiture of the un lucky wight who falls within her reach Heigh ho ' brother chip, is it possible for a blush to mantle your cheek ? We have our doubts on the subject, but in this instance you need not force a flush on our account, as we con sider babies decidedly institutions. We have a faint conception we were once one ourselves, hence have a whole stoi k of sweet and precious love in store for the darling wee little ones Then, had yon attend<-d those veritable lectures you tflk of, you would ha\e heard us eulogite the wife and mother duty, giving it an elevated position Inferior to none other, while, at the same time, it stimulates instead of unfits woman for tilling other sphere ; hence, do not for a moment imagine we are less a public actor and worker than formerly, but on the contrary each duty only helps to perfect our being, adding unto our gifts and graces adornments we could never boast were it not for the advent of our priceless baby. We glory in oitr baby, and hope, dearly hope, it may be spared for a life of future usefulness, prompt to be and <b> theduties it may meet with ; an eye ever on the tlowl rap/><?</ hill. neither fal tering nor turning aside, though in her pathway may be many an obstacle?feeling to do her all of duty is the highest meed of reward living, trusting, hoping, acting in every sphere of life up to its highest requirements, not feeling it a condescension to fold within the rich embrasures of her warm and noble heart a wee precious gift germinating by and fed from hlr own heart's blood, budding and blooming as a fair dower to cheer and guide the weary and aching head and hand forward to other d?s-ds of active life. Ilro ther chip, won't you tell your readers our opinion of the baby institution ' Also our determination not to feel less interest a1?out our expected seat in the White House, for we arc ambitious you know.?

This large and harmonious lodge Invari ably performs all its promises square up to the muk, whether it is in the way of an excursion, a levee, or a work of love, duty, or charity.

Va., by a slave woman belonging to the husband of the d? ceased. It aiso contained some reflections con cerning Mr Hall's treatment of his slaves. Our attention having lteen called to It by a neighbor of Mr. Hall we can but express our regret that any such allusion was embraced in the account of the atfair. Nothing could be further from our purpone than a disposition to wound the feelings of the husband and friends of Mrs Hall, who has met with such a sudden aud heartrending death, and who, to our peisonal knowledge, was?for we resided long in the same neighborhood of Alexandiia county?a most worthy aud estimable person. ?
