Arrival of Weston, the Boston Pedestrian.
--Edward. P. Weston
, the young man who was to walk from Boston
if Mr. Lincoln
was elected, arrived in this city yesterday at half-past 4 P. M. He complained somewhat of being sore and weak, and declares he would not undertake the journey again over such roads for any sum of money.
His walking dress was a pair of blue woolen knit drawers, fitting tight to the limbs, and a blue coat with brass buttons.
He states that three horses were worn out on the way by the ‘"committee"’ of two who accompanied him to see the job done, and one of the gentlemen was compelled to take the cars at the Annapolis junction
and came to this city by railway.
applied at the Clarendon House
for rooms, but being full they directed him to a boarding-house, and at night, accompanied by the Massachusetts
delegation, he attended the inauguration ball.
He has rather a youthful appearance, is of light complexion, and weighs about 145 pounds. Probably he will be careful how he bets next time.--Washington Star, Tuesday.
