Wanting of Probity. --When Washington discovered the treachery of Arnold he seemed, for a moment, as it were, overwhelmed by the discovery of a crime which ruined the fame of an American General and wounded the honor of the American army. Those who were near him anxiously interrogated his looks in silence, which he broke by saying: "I thought that an officer of courage and ability, who had often shed his blood for his country, was entitled to confidence, and I gave him mine. I am convinced now, and for the rest of my life, that we should never trust those who are wanting in probity, whatever abilities they may possess. Arnold has betrayed us!"
Autograph of Washington. --Dr. L. A. Woodson, of the Confederate service, has placed upon our table the subjoined letter from Washington in his own handwriting. It was found in an old house which was lately pulled down on the outskirts of the city, with several others, evidently autographic, but so mutilated and defaced as to be almost illegible. The present letter is addressed to Rev. Mason Weems, afterwards the biographer of Washington, and was no doubt an acknowledgment of the receipt of one of the many pamphlets on moral and religious subjects written by that most industrious author. The letter can be seen at this office: "Mount Vernon,ut while the passions of mankind are under so little restraint as they are among us, and while there are so many motives and views to bring them into action, we may wish for, but will never see, the accomplishment of it. With respect, I am, reverend sir, your most obedient, humble servant. "Geo. Washington. "The Rev M. Weems."
