His lory admits mildly, that b? rode up and auid, "re tha name of Cod, Gtnsral Lm, what has caused ibid ill. timet prudence >" l? insulted him with the reply, " I know no ml blessed with a larger portion ot Unit rascally vir tue than your Kxcelleney." He ro?lo furiously that day over hw equanimity. and sad wan the fate of the miseriv blt man who war* the only officer under hi.s command untortmiale enough to offer him in-olenco. Ho withered I'm tn that time lorth an a limb blasted. Virtue hath that power silently to scathe with its moral might, without ? imn, and to strike down its enemy at once. When the news of M Clair's sad defeat reached him, whilst he was President, he raved for many minutes wltlioat restraint, and railed aloud upon Heaven 's wrath against the neglect ot a command which wan caught in an Indlin umbuet ade. Aflei lie was President, he had a mortifying scene with the then Mr. .lohn Marshall, at Mount Vernon, with wbrrn he was try Ing to prevail to run for a seat in Congress. He healed the wound so handsomely as to prevail in his requt ,-t. aud the speech on Jay's treaty and Uie eminence of the thief Justice afterwards were the fruits of obeying the counsels of one whose very anger and reproach were productive of good to the country, and were turn* d to proofs of private compliment and coa lidi tee. And later still, during the canvass for that very Congress, between Ocneral Itec and Colonel 1 'ay ton la the luii'ux district, Washington became so warm tluit for onie | ersoi.a' intuit he was actually stricken tn the face n tin market hou^e a' Alexandria Ho protected hisau lagt nu-t from the violence of popular resentment; saw tie man fan , and then went home to his closet, as was hu- wont, to regain his equanimity. Iu the same canvass General i.ee, 10 prove Uiat he was not so exclusive as to rebuke a trienu for taking a libetty with his person, fa mlliurly walked up to him in a crowd and tapped his (?houlner. He receive ! a look uever to be f.irgotton. ami sbtuuk swu) in confiislon, saying, "It is the lii'st time 1 ever look a liberty with his person, and it will be the last." No man ever in.-pired so much revorence ami w e. He c< mmunded himself, but himself was very ftr< ng and reqi ired constant watoh and ward, as all truly s.tiong and great natures do. It is fa.-liionuble tn udmit that he was not a man of genius. What genius is the world is hatdly agreed. I concur with Pascal, who, in his essay on the strange con trarieties uistovered hi human nature, distingui3bert be tw?en the reasoning power and what he calls " per ception and a blight and lively act of immediate intelli gttice." Perception and consciout ness act before reason quicker than and often pass and surpass her on the way. He says:?" Nor Is it less ridiculous for reason to demand ot those percep ive aud intellectual faculties than it would be lor the said faculties to demand of reason a clear in ception and intuition of all the problems it demonstrates. This defect, therefore, may serve to the huaiblnig of rca sou, which pretend, tobi the judge of all.thlngs, but not to invalidate .ur assurances, as if reason were alone able to tnfoim our judgment. On the contrary, It were to be wished that we had less occasion for rational deduction, and that we km w all llntgH by instinct aud Immediate vn w. Hut nature has denied us this favor, and allows us but few notices of so easy a k:ud, leuv-ng us to work out the rest by laborious consequer.oes, and a continuous series of argument." Willi tins choicest and best dedal ti< n ot gt mus borne in n.ind. 1 challenge all history to fLoa an instance ol an actor wno required ftuvl exerted more the p? r< eptive and intellectual faculties than dIJ ticorge Wa-liinglon In the American Revolution. The whi !<? action of the time, at every turn, put the actor to the sever* st tests ot every power of the human mind. He was found leliberute, yet often ditferiug from his council ot war ; cautious, yet surprisingly prac Using the vtry policy of rai-hnes*; slow, yet moving at a m< tneLt with the celerity of light; minute in detail, yot ci mprt hensive iu the lai get sense of survey and combi nation; a man ol all work and regularly tramel to none; with but few cletneuts of knowledge for any, doing all -ur racing I) well; in every variety of untried scene, and without even ordinary means an J instruments of execu tion, always doing the most with the least; never failing where means appioached equality to the end never lostug un advantage lor want of forecast, and so quick In per ee|tw>ntha he was never surprised; a soldier, yet no polytechnic; a civilian of the highest ogder, yet no r i holar. nor lawyer, nor metaphysician, nor historian ? nothing in preparation, yet everything in accomplish ment. And this unerring course of conduct, successful alike in military and civil life, kept on in its even tenor lor Of ty years, out ot little more than sixty-six of his human existence. Reasoning and Judgment will not ac count for it. It was genius and inspiration, ills worts themselves inherently show that they were constructed by no step by step ot mere ratiocination. Instinct and intuition made tbtm pregnant. He was Commander in Chief, Commissary General, correspondent of C^greus; reasoning constantly and patiently, and anon rushing with sudden celeilty to seize a moment as it llew. He was pre-eminently gifted in the "immediate view, and no less with power to work out the rest by laborious consequences and a coutinued series of argument." Let others boast, then, of a Cosar, or a Charlesagne, or a Cromwell, or a Bonaparte. After ail heroes and sages and their intellects and their act* are measured and summed up to their fullest magnitude ot greatness, we ?Ull may claim that Washinton'a ? ? ? Ureatnrsa will appear Thro tni?i conspicuous, when great ihlngt of small, I artul of hurtful, prosperous ol advrrne. We ran create: aud in what place no eter Thrive under evil, and work rue out of pain, Through labor and endurance. ?Ann chit It) the spirit of tlod did prefer before nil tem ples hut uptight heart and pure, and instructed him. That was his genius. He died as tie lived, and what a beautiful economy there was in his death! Not a faculty was impaired, not an trior hail marred the moral ot his life. At sixty-nlx, not <|Uite threescore years and ten. he was taken away, whilst his example was perfect. He took cold, slighted the symptoms, saying, "Jet it go as it come.'' In the morning ol the Nth Decetfher, '?#, he felt severe illness; t ailed in his overseer, Mr. Rawllngs, to bleed him. He was agitated, and Washington siml to him "don't be afraid." When about lo tie up his arm, he said with dlf tic u It y, " more." After all efforts failed, he designated the |*i*r he meant lor his will, then turned to Tobias I .ear and said. "1 find I am guing; try breath cannot continue long. I believed Irom the first It would be fatul. fto you arrange and record all my nulltary letters and papers; ariaige my accounts and settle my books, a* you know nn re about tin m than any one else, and let Mr. Kaw lings flntsh recording my other letters which he has beguu.'' ft twet n 6 sua t o'clock, be said tu bus physician. Dr. Craik, " I lie) myself going: you liad l? tt?e|st take any more trouble about me but let me go off quMly I cannot aj-t king!'* fhortly after, agatu lie said, " Z sir tor, I die hard, but I am not afraid to go; I believed from my first attatk 1 should not survive It; my breath cannot U t long " About 10 o'clock he made several atteni|>ts to speak to Mr. Iswr. and at last said, "I am Jost innng. Have me decently buried, and do net let my body be put into the vault inlets than two days after I am dead.'' Isar says, "1 bowed assent." He looked at me again and said "1 o yon understand met" I replied "Vie sir." " Tie well.'' sai< I he. And these were his last words, and 'tw well his last words were " TVi well." Just betore he txpued h? felt blx own pulse , his hand fell front his wrl?t, and George Washington was no more.
