Tbe post, t&^wesent, and to a remarkable estent tbe eventualities of tbe future, seemed garnered In bis thoughtfolneas, and suspicious results, sooner or later, flowed almost as a matter of course from bis profound deliberations and tbe determinations of bis sagacious mind. With tbe characteristics of Washington, which I have now described, were united t Will which, once made up, was steadfast as tbe sun; a courage that was invincible; a zeal which no obstacle* could deaden; a patience that was eihaust> ??, and a cheerfulness which the most poignant of trials could scarcely discompose. With them were united also a sensibility from which both aiTrt'tlon and comniaalon could rfllke extract the sweetest response; a liberality, the result of overflowing goodness of heart, that was unbounded; great disinterestedness of motive* and a profound and unfaltering moral and religious trust. And all these elements Were so harmoniously blended ia his composition, acted and reacted with such Just adaptation each to the other, and all to the great ends of human conduct, like rays of the enrlchlng light, were so beautifully combined, as to constitute Washington, as is now the almost universal judgment, the most perfect man, viewed aa a whole, in the full accomplishments of his being, in all the massive completeness of his na ture, the moat perfect man upon whom the earth has looked since the morning stars sang together ia the primeval glory of creation. other men may have achieved greater distinction simply as warriors and conquerors, a Cteiar, a Hannibal, a Turenne, a Marlborough, a Napoleon, or a Wellington could marshal bouts upon the battle Held with "skill more t-cientiHe, doubtless, than his own, and glitter more magnificent iv in me sneeu 01 uiooa-uougut victories " Other men miiy have plucked more showy laurel* simply a* orator* and statesmen.

Yes, yes! we are ktr* penetrated with tbe tender emotions of children at a father's grave. Soldless: I hold In my hand a bouquet of simpls flowers, growu upon the banks of the Delaware, whose waters ceasrlefily roll a liquid tribute to tbe broad, deep ocean of Washington's Immortality. These flowers were culled and srrmnged by my dear own beloved sister, Mrs Cowperwalte, of Philadelphia, a lineal descendant of that tried and veteran soldier, whose form appears and whose name Is enshrined upon onr banners; and this bouquet presented afa testimonial of respect to the wife of our honored commandant, at whose hands I hsve received It with the request that I should plaCe It on the tomb of Washington. Most reaailv shall 1 comply with that request, and gratefully acknowledge the compliment paid me as the selected agent to discharge so pleasing a duty. The sp^fcer then placed the flowers upon tbe sarcophagus, and turning to the assemblage exclaimed:?There! there! repose sweet flowers, and breathe out all of your fragrance. " Sweet, goodly flowers, ye were loved in times of old, And better worth are crowns of flowers than crowns of beaten gold." Poor, ffail emblems, your stems must wither; your fragrance he lost in the surrounding atmosphere. and your leaves be scattered and driven by the winds. And npw, sons and daughters of Connecticut, our pilgrimage has been ended, and although the beauty and fragrance of the rote, geranium, and anemone may not be here?although this tomb should yet neglected be; aye, should both nature and art withhold thtir offerings?still imagination and the feelings of every patriotic American will supply what they withhold, and flowers, perennial flowers of immortal beauty shall ever deck th: tomb of Washington.

After spending about an hour in this agreeable manner, the rollcf-the drum recalled the scattered multitude, and the Phalanx, headed by their band of martial music, marched back to tbe wharf to the strains of Yankee Doodl*, and re embarking, let forth on their return. The passage back to \\ ashington was a pleasant one indeed. Capt Baker, of tneCollyer, exerted himself to the utmost to make bit at home upon the steamer, and the enjoyment was universal.
