[ From Griswold's Republican Court ] New York was the metropolis of the United States, under the constitution, less than two years, and this period em braced but one winter. J11 the May and June following the inauguration, there were a few public balls and probably many private ones, but the ill-health of the President, the death of his mother, and other circumstances, prevented him from attending any subsequent to that given by the Count de Mustier, which has been already described in these pages, until after his return from the tour through the Eastern States, about the middle of November. Mrs. Washington bad little inclination for such amuse ments, and was never once present at any ball in New York, after the close of the revolution, notwithstanding what Mr. Jefferson says on this subject. Mrs. Washington held her levee, as on other Friday evenings, but or no previous occasion had one been graced with go much elegance. The air wes almost as gentle as it should be in May, and the full moon shone so brightly that the streets to a late hour were filled with a delicious twilight. It was not the cus tom for visitors of the President to sit, but it appears from Mr. Pinford's diary that on this night at, there were chairs in the room where M.s. Washing ton saw her guests, for, ' after they were ?a ed," tea and coffee, and plum and plain cake, were dispensed by tin.-attend ing servants. She remarked, while speaking of the day's occurrences, that none of thcin had bo pleased the General (by which title she always designate I lier husband) as the friendly greetings c f the gentleman who called at uoon. T ^ an inquiry of the Prewdent, whether such observances were usual or custom ary, it was answered that New Year's visiting had always been maintained in the city. He paused a moment and thtn observed, "The highly favored situation of New York will in the process of years attract numerous emigrants, who will gradually change it; ancient customs and manners: but, whatever changes take place, never forget the cordial and cheer ful observance of New Year's day." Mir. Washington had stood by his side as the visitors arrived and were presented, and when the clock in the hall was heard striking nine, she advanced, and with a complacent smile said: "The General always retires at nine, and I usually precede him," upon which all arose, made their parting salutations, and with drew. DUK3 OF WELLINGTON A3 a GALLANT. As early as 1809, two of the daughters of Mr. Caton were reigning belles ot Baltimore and Washington. The me moirs of the eldest would constitute a narrative of singular and romantic inter est. In the first flowering of womanly beauty she was married to Mr. Robert Patterson, an accomplished and wealthy merchant of Baltimore, with whom she traveled in Europe, where she attracted tlie attention of Sir Arthur Wellesly, af terwards Duke of Wellington, who fol lowed her over half the continent, and by his unguarded devotion incurred not a little scandal. Mrs. Patterson returned to Maryland, and her admirer for many months wrote a minute diary of what occurred in the gay world abroad, which he transmitted in letters by every packet for the United States. When she became a wit^ow she revis ited London?but the future hero of Wa terloo was now himself married and therefore unable to offer Iter his hand; he, however, introduced his elder brother, the Marquis of Wellesley, 44 that great statesman whose outset in life was mark ed by a cordial support of American in dependence," and was now Viceroy of Ire land. and he soon after became her hus band. fcir Arthur continued, through all his splendid career, to be one of her wannest friends. The Marchioness of Wellesley died at Hampton Court, on the 17th of December, 1853. One of her Bisters was married to Colonel lleivey, an aid-de-camp to bord Wellington in the battle of Waterloo, aiid, becoming a widow, was subsequently united to tne Marquis of Caermarthen, afterwards the Duke of Leeds. Another sister married Baron Stafford, and another Mr. McTav ish, for many years British consul at Bal timore. Mrs. McTavish still survives, and is one of the most distinguished and respected women of her native city. NKW ENGLAND SOCI1TT IK 1776. i he babita of lite, polish of manner an<l style of dress were the badges ol eminence by which the aristocracy ol Now England af&erted its outward supe riority. If a gentleman went abroad, it appeared in his wig. white stock, white satin embroidered vest, black satin small clothes, with white silk stockings, ami fine broadcloth or velvet coat. If at heme, a velvet cap, sometimes with a tine linen one beneath it, took the place o( a wig, while a gown, frequently o< colored damask, lined with silk, "was substituted for the coa!. and the feet were covcred with leather slippers of souk fancy color. Visitors were received witli hospitality and graceful courtesy. lh? custom prevailed which now would shock the New Kuglaud scale of propriety, in genteel families; a tankard of punch was prepared every morning, and visitors durng the day were invited to partake of it. The master of the house sonic times taking the vessel from the cooler in which it stood, and after drinking from it himself handing it m person to the guest J. There was a great deal of social inter course in the class we are describing. The interchange of dinners and suppers was frequent: at the first, the most fash ionable hour for which was never later than three, the table groaned under its weight of provisions, after the last, the customary evening amusement was cards The law expressly prohibited dramatic entertainments, but they had concerts: and at these, in Boston, at least, privaU gentlemen sometimes were the perform ers, both vocal and instrumental, simply, however, for the entertainment of their friends. Dancing was not among the things which the Legislature had made m>tla prohibita, and consequently there were assemblies for this recreation ; but they were conducted with such severe at tcntion to propriety, that nothing short of the unanimous consent of the gentle men subscribers would authorize admis sion. One of these assemblies would make an amusing spectacle at this time The stately minuet, with all its formal and high bred courtesy, ilourished in those days, and was varied only by the contra dance. Cotillons came in after wards, with the French refugees Inou the W est Indies. The style of the dress, too, for gentlemen, would at this day b? likely to attract notice in the salmon ol faction ; but coals cf velvet or cloth wero literally of all colors, not even iicluding red, aud sometimes the color of the vel vet or cloth was in studied contrast t-> that of the other parts. JOSIAII QlJINCr THE ,4 FIBST MATCH IN TOK UNITED STATES " Josiah Quincy, who still survives, one of the brightest ornaments of a departed age, in the enjoyment of the reverend homage of our own, was alto among the visiters of this respectable circle. Mrs. .\dams, referring to his arrival in the city, wrires: " This young man is a rare instance of hereditary eloquence and ingenuity in the fourth generation, lie comes into life with every advantage of family, for tune, and education, and 1 wish bun ail the success which such auguries natu rally present him in prospect i yester day, in the presence of half a dozen Scn ate>rs, laughingly advised him to go to the President and Mis. Washington, and ask their leave to make his addressee to Kelly Custis, or her sister, at George town. The young man blushed, and he may have left his heart in Boston ; but 1 think him the first match in the United States." TnE 1.APIKN OF TUK UKPLUIJCAN COURT NOW LIVING. Mrs. Bradford was the only child of Elta^ Boudinot, one of the most respect able characters of the Revolution, and she and Mrs. Hamilton and Charles Car roll, the younger, I believe, aie the only ladns of our Republican Court now liv ing. Mrs. Carroll was one of the daugh ters ol Benjamin Chew. She was not married until Washington's linal retire ment to Mount Vernon, but she and htr sister, Mrs. Henry Phillips, were tavor i:es with the chief, and were much in his society as girls. The marriage of an elder sister to Col. John Eager Howard, of Bait.more, was attended by him at Chew's baronial house in (iermantown, during .he sitting of the Federal Conven tion in 1787. Mrs Howard came back to Philadelphia in 1796, when her hus band entered Congress as a Senator from Maryland. A MELANCHOLY MEKTIKG We clip the following sketch from the local rrports of a Baltimore paper. It relates one of the harrowiag scenes of every day life: A few months .iince, the dingy-looking alms house wagon, on its route to gather the daily quantum of paupers, arrived at a certain police station, to receive the last instalments of unfortunates, pre vious to transmitting them to the quar ters provided for them by the corpora tion. At the arrival of the vehicle, at the Stition house, there appeared rexun for only one more pauper upon the crowd ed bench. The scat was, at length, oc cupied by an elderly, decrepid man, bowed almost double through disease, misery, and distress. The carriage with its mclanchaly cargo, rolled along the streets towards its destination in perfect silence, for the space of some four or five minutes, when suddenly, a venerable withered little woman, seated moodily, in a corner of the can iage, turned te> warels the decrepid inan, spoken of above, aud shouted *? John, John ! do 1 see you or a ghost? ' *? Mary, by all that's damnable !" was the muttered yet audible response of the aged and back-bowed man. ?' Yes, it is Mary," growled the little old lady in a shrill, sharp falsetto. "You ran away four years ago, leaving me and the two babies to starve and die." ?' Starve and die, indeed," rejoined the old male sinner??? when I left jou to seek my fortune, yon were able to cam uearly $2 a week at shoe binding? enough to keep yourself and children i fu>m starving.' 44 Yes," groaftcd the poor old woman, " hut you (orget the consumption and the blood-S|iiUing that nearly killed me before you run away, and Ave days after jou were gone, the children were starr ing and I was under the hands of the Dispensary Doctor, that brought me up from a death bed for a few miserable days which will end, I hope, ere long." 41 And the children?little Joe and El len?where arc they?" murmured the miserable father with a husky voice. 'Oh! safe enough, I tell you husband ?Jo sty the blue eyed, good, playful lit tle boy is fas: asleep in Western Potter's Field?darling Ellen, with het golden curls ipos put to sleep in Eastern Potter's Field. But the doctors, I'm told, would not let her rest.

A sei les of heart rending sobs from the miserable father was the only reply, and the Alms Ilcuse car rolled on towards its destination, with its human freight af mis fortune, improvidence, poverty and wick edness.
