Smithsosiaji LacTtaa ?Last evening Rev. \ Dr Pierson, of Cumberland College, Ky., delivered the second lecture of the Smithsonisn course at the Institute, upon "The Private Life of Jefferson." The lecture was made up largely of the narrative of Capt. Baton, of Kentucky, (who was Mr Jefferson's overseer for twenty years.) and was given aa nearly as possible In Capt. B s own language. Mr J efferson was six feet two-and-a-half i nches la stature, well proportioned, and remarkably erect In his carriage. His physical strength was very great, and his health excellent. He had blue eyes, a fair skin, and always wore a mild and pleaaant countenance, which Capt B. says he never saw disturbed bv any trouble or disappointment. He was an early riser, and never had a servant to build a lire In his room, but would Lave dry wood prepared for him and kindle his own fires at all seasons. He never used tobacco In any form; never was beard to utter a profaue word, and was strenuously Opposed to card play><>g. which he forbade among his servants He was also opposed to dancing. He was a small eater, but what he did eat was of the richest kind; beef, lamb and veal were his favorite meats, but he had a great aversion to pork He was exceedingly fond of vegetables and fruit, both of which he raised in great abundance He was very ingenious, ard Invented a plow, which won a medal; he planned all his buildings, the style of c*"l*ge, and the arrangement and character of his fences Unless the weather was inclement, Mr. Jefferson always rode ont at nine o'clock in the morning, at which time he wore over hisshort brwhss, stockings and bright shoe buckles, a long pair of overalls. He was fond of bearing preaching, and rendered the ministers who held service in the vicinity of Montlcello a great many favors His kindness to the poor was remarkable, and whenever be returned from Washington his bouse was beset by hundreds, for the purpose of begging, none of whom were turned away emptv by him. la 1816 a severe fro*t cut off the corn crop, and bat very little w?s raised In the neighborhood. A small section of country at the base of the Blue Ridge, however, did not suffer, and had a good crop Mr Jefferson sent there and purchased thirty barrels, at ten dollars per barrel, for his own use; but when It was being haul*d to Montlcello, the people flocked around and actually begged and received the corn aa fast as it arrived, until the thirty barrels were all distributed. Mr Jefferson was very particular In the transaction of business, and kept a strict accoant of all his affairs, each overseer reporting to him their respective disbursements and receipts In all business transactions with his neighbors, even If the sum Involved did not exceed five dollars, there was a written contract made between tbe p-irtles, thus avoiding all difficulty in settling. His overseers were alwavs furnished with written instructions; sad when he left for Washington to be inaugurated President, he placed a large roll of papers In the hands of Cspt. Baton, with directions concerning everything to be done on the estate, not er -ept ng the most trifling matters. He had four children, two of whom died quite young. The other two?Martha and Maria?were married to prominent men, the former tea Mr. Randolph. Mrs. Randolph was an exceedingly kind lady; and during his twenty years residence with the family, Captain B never saw her out of temper. Like her father, Mr. J efferson, she was alwsys humming some air when not eon versing, snd was always busy about something Capt. Bacon had free access to Mr. Jefferson's room during the entire twenty yesrs, and in that time he never found Mr. Jefferson idle but three times. Once he had retired, st another time he was suffering from the toothache, and on the third occasion with the neuralgia. A great attachment existed between Mr. Jefferson snd his grandchildren, and he took particular delight In giving them advice and directing their amusements He used to tell them never to laugh boisterously In company or when another was conversing; that was his habit The children used to bring home their scboolmstes with them, snd on Saturdays they would bsve line times about the plantation, rambling over tbe estate, estlng fruit, Ac. Among the favorite scholars Invited were \V. C. Rlve? and W. F Gordon, the former being stylad the peacemaker, as the school boys always referred their differences to him for settlement. ? Mr. Jefferson was very kind to his servants, never overworking them, nor whipping them, unless they really deserved it. He had a favorite servant named Burwell, who was allowed a great manv liberties, and when Mr. Jefferson left Mon tlcello for Washington he directed bis overseer not to be very particular with him. and to give him occasionally small sums of spending money. In his will Mr. Jeffersoo gave Burwell his freedom. When Mrs Jefferson died all tbe house servants stood sround the bad, and Mr. Jefferson sst by her side, holding one of her hands. When he came to bid her children good-bye she wept very much, snd said she could not die In peace with the thought that they should ever hsve s step-mother. Mr. Jefferson promised her never to marry again, aad lived forty years of single life after tbe decease of his wife. In his will be set qalte a number of his servants free, and would have emancipated sll of them had it not been for the embarrassed condition of his business affairs. He did not like slavery, and often predicted just such evils ss the country Is now suffering. Having to psy 20,000 for Gov Nichols, of Virglnls, he was considerably cramped for money, but continued to struggle oo until tbst, with keeping pen house, involved him, aad after his death the estate passed out of the hands of his children. Mr Piersoa concluded his lecture with a comparison of Virginia's former greatness and present degeneracy, and bade God speed the time when she should once more stand among the S Alas of the Union, loyal and great as before.
