WET IRVING NEVER HARRIS]). —:o: “Much mystery has attached to the celi bacy of Washington Irving. While upon other points of peculiarity of his charac ter and career his familiar friends hsrve taken pains to inform the wide circle of, his admirers, an aggravating reticence has always met the quevtiouiiigx of those who were curious as to why matrimony made no part of hia experience. There were occasional and very vague references made loa-lang syne” lore—so dimly distant in the past as to have the air of tradition: and the manner of mentioning which made Irving appear the model of eoustmi ey.‘ if not the hero of a romance.

The set time for its disclosure had uot come, aid sure ly when Li* intimates and rclatit cs were debarred from the remotest reference to the subject iu the hallowed home circle of the literary bachelor, it was but proper that the truth should burst forth upuu the world, if at all, in Irving’s own sc hjggj time and iu his own pathetic lan guage. It was while engaged in writing his • History of New York” that Irving then a young man twenty six. was called to mirurti the somewhat sudden death of Ma tilda Hoffman, whom he had hoped to call his wife. This young Isdy was the second daughter of Jnstah Ogden Hoff man, and tlie sister of those two talented men. Charles Feuuo Hoffman, the poet and Ogden Hoffman, the eloquent jurist. In her father’s office Washington Irving had eseayad to study law. and with every prospect, if Sudusthras and studious, of s partnership with Mr. Huffman as well Ip a matrimonial allianoe with Matilda. Thssw high hopes were disappointed by the decease of the young lady on the 20th of April, 1801), in the 19tk year of her **Thero is a pathos about Irving’s reci tal of the circumstances of her death, and of his own feelings, # that is truly painful snd tear impelling. lie says — ••She was taken ill with a cold.

Here arc some extracts : [ 1118 REGULATIONS WITH THE “OLD MAN.** r We suppose the greatest trial a boy has to undergo, is to submit his will to the • old man, whom he is taught to consider • hie father. To be restrained in doors at ’ night, to be forbidden to go in swimming ’ five times a day, or to be kindred from • pinching the rest of the children jost for ' fun. is an intcfereuoe with a natural ina • 1 tenable right, every way injurious to the • feelings. And then, when upon some r overwhelm!sg temptation, the boy asserts • hv> independence off parental control, and I receives a “tanning,*’ a swiech from a • quince bush, either upon bis hack or bare • feet, it becomes really a serious thing.— f t I Wo never see the smart of an operation like thi< was at all assauged by the af- I feet ion ato assurance that it was bestowed 1 out of pore love. SITTING wmi THE GIItLS. The next great trial of boy is, to be I obliged by a cruel master to sit with the i girls at sebool This usually comes be ■ fore the development of those undeniable • affinities which in after life, would tend to I make the punishment mors endurable, — II To bo pointed out as a “gal-boy,” to be ' smiled at grimly by the master, who ijis so delighted with bin own ineffable | pleasantry as to gi?s the little hoys |i* i, cense to laugh aloud, and to be plaood by the aide of a girl who had no bandker i i chief, and no knowledge of the use of the ! article, in we submit, a trial of no mean | magnitude. Yet we have been there, and 1 ' have beets obliged to “set up close” with ■ Rachael, laughing end blushing till we > ‘ come to hate her name. We wonder i! where the overgrown frowsy creature |it now. trad what the condition of her 11 bead is I \ TIHt nag? long tailed mat. We do not believe that any boy ever put on bin first long tilled coat without a 1 j sense of ■bame. He first twists his n-ok half off looking at it in the floss, and .■ when he ntepa out of doors it seems to him. if ail creation was in a Wood grin. The mo laughs in the sky; the cows lorn to louk at him ; there arc feces at every win dow ; hi* very shadow mucks him. Wha he walks hy tbe cottage where Jane livto, he dares not loyk up for bis life. The very boards creek with consciousness of the strange spectacle, and the old |iair of pant* that atop a hole in tbe garret win dow nod with derision. If ho b obliged to pas* a group uf men or boys, the trial assumes Its most terrific stage. His leap gel all mixed up with embarrassment, sou ; the flap of tbe dsugliag appendage is felt I upon them moved by the wind uf his own | agitation ; lie could uot feel worse were it | a dishcloth, worn as s bandage of disgrace. | It is a happ> time fur him a hen he guts to the church and sets down with his long i talc under him, but he is still appre hensive with thinking of tbe Sunday School, and wou lers if any of the children i will ak him to “swing his long tail blue.” GOING HOMS WITH TUB GIRLS. The entrance into society may be said to take place after boyhood has passed away, yet a multitude take the iuitiativc, before their beards arc presentable. It is a great trial, either to a tender or tough sge. For an overgrown boy to go to a I duor knowing that there are a dozen girls ! inside and to knock or ring with absolute • certainty that iu two minute* their eyes will be upon him is a severe task of cour age. To go bofere these girls aud make a satisfactory tour of the room without • stepping upon their toes, and then sit | down and diispose of one’s hands without ' putting them into one’s pockets, is aa achievement which few boys ran boast.— If a buy can get so far as to measure off tan yards of tape with oue of those girls, and cut it short at each end, he may stand a chance to pass a pleasant evening, but let him not flatter himsvlf (hat the trial* uf j the evening are uver. There comes at ; least tbe breaking up. The dear girls dun their hoods and put on their shawls, and look so nancy and mischievous, and unimpressible as if they did not wish any one to go home with them. Then come* the pinch, and the boy that has got the m>>t pluck makes up lo the prettieot girl ; ' his heart is iu his throat, and his tongue clinging to the roof of his mouth, and crooking hiu elbows, stammers out the words, “shall I see you home t” She touches her lingers to bis nrtn, and they walk home about a foot apart, feeling as awkward as a couple of goslings. As soon as she i> safe inside her own doors, he struts home, and has really been and goiii ami done it. Sleep comes to him at last, with dreams of Crinoline and Calico, and he awake? in tbe morning aud find* the door of life open to him and the pig* ; Mjuding for break CONCLUDING REFLECTIONS. We have passed over churning and learn ing the catechism, because wo are fearful of making this article too long, although wc might have talked of butter that would not be persuaded to come, and perplexi ties of a literary turn of mind, aud a brad that measures- seven and a quarter when asked what is the chief end of man was. Boyhood is a green passage in man’s ex perience in more senses than one. It is a pleasant thing to think over aud laugh about now, though it was serious enough then. Many of our present trials are as ridiculous as those which now touch the rihibles in the recollection, and when we get to the other world and look upon this, and upon the infancy of the soul through which we passed here, we have no doubt that we shall grin over the trials which we experienced whan we lost our fortunes, when our mill* were swept sway or burn ed, and when we did cot get elected tu the Legislature. Men are but buys of a larger growth. From ttu Nor York Exprru. THE TRUTH ABOUT MEXICO. The Cowritr des. Ft>its Unis of this morning, under the above liemiing, says that nothing is more common than to talk about the situation off Mexico, but noth ing is more rare than to discuss the subject with reasonable knowledge of the fecu. People are accustomed to con sider not so muck tbe Government of Juarez as the word that aerves him for i a battle try; and because tbe President jof Mexico and his satellites rail them selves Liberals, people willingly believe that liberalism is at stake in the dispute ; that is soon to be decided iu Mexico. Thinking it time that sueh •an error | should oeaae, and that the feetionists ' who have too long desolated tbe spßn j iah Republic should be Featured to their true colors, without regard to tbe name ' which they have aeon fit to appropriate, ' the editor of the Conrrirr copies an aMy written letter from Vera Cruz to tbe Pariw Journal des Debate, setting forth “tho real situation off Mexico, exposing the oooLmptibU adventurer* who fallen off her, and stating the legitimate aspira | lions of the mass of the populations." The writer of this feMer says that j there Is neither liberal. ®°v clerical or ' reactionary party in Mexico. There are . simply audacious robber*, without scru ple* uf auy kind oq the ewe hand, and fkflki wall used to (fee yoke and pret

ty mriy resigned to their wretched fate bewad* hut only uz uiQiluus/ compos-i ed <16,400,000 pure or half-breed Indians and 000,000 white men whose blood is mqygLmr. lera mixed with Indian and iguorsuce Chat in same parts they be-] lieve themselves to be still subject to 1 Spain. A few thousand of them drawn j away from their labors by the civil wars, i take an active part in the disastrous straggles which are waged for the ben efit of five or six knaves, half uf whom call themselves Liberals, and the other half Reactionists. All tbe rest of the population, the real people, desire only to work and live in peace in this coun try, which would be great iu a few years under a true. Government ; for poverty j is rare and it would ba altogether un known if there was only a better security for persons and property. The two parties divide the six hun dred thousand Mexicans properly so cal led, pretty equally, the greater part of them affecting political passions far enough from their real sentiments. This is eas ily understood when it is .taken into consideration that to belong to the de feated party is to furnish a warrant of spoliation, which the poor victim rarely escapes, often even suffering death ; and one runs the same risks in his own par ty, if he should be suspected of any moderation. To sympathise with Juarez and Lis Government because they chose to rail themselves Liberals, would-be in reality to approve of a state of siege, robbery, murder, the absence of all guaranty, of all liberty and all honesty. These peop;e steal from governments as well as from io dividunls—ns witness the $40,000 belong ing to France stolen by the Juarez Gov ernment from the bank of M. Penaud, where the money was deposited, and the {630,000 stolen by Miramon from tbe nglish Legation. There is some differ ence in the amounts stolen, it is true, but the only difference between the thieves is the regret on the part uf Juarez that he could nut steal as much as bis antagonist. The choice made by Juarez of his Execu tive officers shows well enough what lie is. Porfirio Leon, the Ghief of Police iu Mex ico, is a notorious robber, and served sev en years in the chain gang for assassina tion—three of them iu the city of Mexico itself. He was the plotter of the recent attempt on the life of the French Minis ter, Saligny, and, byway of satisfying the complaints of the French Government, be has been promoted to be Brigadier Gene ral. Carvajal, Coellard. Kojas and the greater part off the other Genwrala now ac tively employed by Juarcx were mere bri gand*, and were commissioned Generals when they brought their cut-throats to take service with his party. # The only thing organised in Mexico is highway robbery. At every station be tween Vera Cruz and Mexico a sum of money is taken from travellers for the ben efit uf the robbers. It is like a regular tax. added to the price of passage. Wo men sometimes have to pay mute than mo ney. Marquez arrive* at a town and demands J IO,OOO fur the defender* of religion. If ie money cannot be supplied, be shoots 1 twenty-five persons, under pretence that if they have no money it must be because they have given it to bis eiiemh s. In eight days afterwards, Carajal will come to the same town, and twenty-five more wretches are allot under a similar pretence. In one district alone, al*out the size of a French Department, fifteen hundred per sons have perished iu this manner. The correspondent of the Jourmd des Dtbult concludes bis graphic fetter by repeating that there are no such things as political parties in Mexico. There are oppressors and oppressed. So far at the Utter are concerned, the only difference between the former is that one eats them with red sauce and the other with Mack ; and aa the alternative is constantly presented anew, those who escape tits eoe arc pretty sure to (all victim* to the other. The only remedy for this terrible sUto of things, rays tbe French writer, is a strong govern ment, under which “the good shall be re assured, and the wicked shall tremble.” What u Live ?—The mere elapse of years is not life. To eat, and drink, and sleep—to be exposed to darkness and light—to. pace round in the mill of habit, and turn thought, into an imple ment of trade—this is life.

Bnttar Cameron—Official Respond- Mlity- Messrs. Editors :— Considerable - conception appears to prevail in reference to lira responsibility of the ex-Secretary of War for the arrest and imprisonment of Mr. Butler. Many entertain the idea I that because he nsewysad a high oMal j position, his official robes most protect him. A second* clara suppose that if it I was done by order of the President, suck 1 order is sufficient in itself to screen the - subordinate; while a third eouceive that. the Government, in time of rebellion, baa some hidden power, by which it may du wrong and injustice with perfect impuni ty In England, the responsibility of the ex-Socrctary would not be questioned, and officials as lofty in the State have been, at tho ending of their official term, held to ijust retribution for their official wrong, and Governors (admitted to be effectually viceroys) have been made to answei hea vily for their assumption of power. I<ord Mau.'field made this right of the injured, despite the shield of official pr<l nsion, the glory of tbe common law snd of Eng lish judicature. Iu this country, at no time, if Lis rights under the Constitution arc secured to him, ran the civil or political privileges j of tbe citizen be infringed by a public officer, with impunity to the transgressor, or without ample means of obtaining redress for the injured party. Within the limits of their respective powers, all officers, from the President downwards, ought to be submitted to or obeyed; but if they should overstep the limits of their official authority—if they should usurp powers not delegated to them by the Constitution, or some law made in pursuance thereof, they weuld cease U be under the protection uf their officers and woultf be recognized merely as private citizens; and for any act uf injustice ur op pression they might commit, would be lia ble to a civil or criminal prusecutiuu; in the same manner os a private ciliscu, with ibis distinction, that if the wrong doer has availed himself of his official character, or of tfie opportunities his office affords him, to comuiitt act* uf injustice or oppression, it will be considered as a great aggravation of his guilt, in a crimi nal prosecution, mod w I] be good ground for a jury to find exemplary damages iu a civil action, because private injury here is connected with a breach of the public confidence. Neither will the fact that Mr. Cameron was acting under the instructions of the President excuse him. In 2nd Craach, 119. tbe Supreme Court of the United Stales decided, “That if the President •should mistake hia powers under (be Constitution, or the construction of an act of Congiea, and give imttmc'ions not warranted by the Constitution in the act, aoy aggrieved party might recover dam ages against thv officer acting under tbe j instructions, which, though given by the j President, would furnish no justification i or excuse.” I This Government, in time of rebellion, 1 not change its character; nor does it alter the Conatitutiqp because the South may be trying to'overthrow it. There is no department that can assume dicta torial powers, nor is there any owe de partment that can confer such power upon any other. Tbe right of all citizens not serving in the army, militia or navy, re main precisely the same. Neither tbe President nor any of his Cabinet have the right to issue warrants or arrest the citi ; zen This belongs exclusively to the Jo- I diciary at all times. Certainly, the histo -2 of odious genet al warrants ic England ould have taught our people a lesson. I : The President or any one of his Cabinet j ' I have just as mnoh right to order tbe citi-; | ten to instant execution as they have to deprive him of hi* liberty by any such 1 ! process.
