Iteen q.uartcml in rhihdelplila, coin
inanded by Maj. (Jen. Kir William
Howe. Tlie General had now been
superseded tuid Was alioiit to return
to England. Tlie officers of the array,
a wealthy class who had uottitnir io
do, sci.ed the Occasion of his retlro
inent to amuse tliemselvei by giving a
grand festival in his honoi ; and this
was the day on which it was robe
The alhtir began with a grand regat
ta on tlie Delawitie river, or rather a
long procession of galleys and liarges,
filled with officers and ladies, wjtich
were rowed slowly down the whole
length of the city'n an avenue form
ed by tilt) shore crowded with specta
tors, and a line of men-of-war and
transport ships, gaily dressed with
Hags and streamers. At half past
four in the afternoon, the barges be
gan to move, tlie oars keeping time
to the martial music, and when they
had arrived Opposite Market street,
they all laid ujioii their oars,
while the kind played '-Owl stive
tlie King;" after which the soldiers
gave lliree cheers. Continuing their
course, tlie company were conveyed
past the city to where a grand tourna
ment was to take place; and it was in
tills portion of the entertainment tltat
.Margaret Shipped shone. A spacious
field, surrounded by troops, had been
prepared for tne contest
sine was stationed all the bam s of
music in the army. There were two
pavilions, with rows of benches, one
above the other, filled with the most
distinguished ladies of the city.
On tin? front seat of each of these
pavilions were placed seven of the
most beantiftil young ladies Pennsyl
vania could boast. They were dress
ed iu Turkish costume trowscrs, tu
nics and Turbans, and in their turbans
they wore the favors with which they
intended to reward tlie kniglils who
were to contend in their honor.
Among these lovely maidens sat Miss
Margaret Shippen. One of the knights
who figured in the tournament was
Capt. Andre, her familiar acquaint
ance. Little could either of them
have thought, on this bright titty, how
fatally their destinies were involved.
The trumpet sounded. The herald
appeared. The challenge was deliv
ered, and the contest occurred ; which
ended without loss of blood, to the
satisfaction of all concerned. At the
conclusion of the tournament the com
pany were uslierctl into a inagnillont
ball room, decorated, we are told, by
eighty-five mirrors, and lighted by
thirty-four branches of wax caudles.
The ball was opened by the fourteen
belles in Turkisli dress, and their four
teen knights one Lieutenant Sloper
being the knight who led Miss .Ship
pen out to dance. At ten o'clock, the
whitlows were thrown open, ami a
splendid display of fireworks was ex
hibited. At twelve, large folding doors,
which had hitherto been concealed, were
suddenly thrown open, which revealed
a gorgeous saloon, twohundrcd and ten
feet long, forty feet wide, and twenty
two feet high, with three alcoves oil
each side. This was tlie supper room.
Pimm the table tltere were twelve

ed the room, a great number of black
slaves in Orientid costume, ranged in
two lines, bow ed to thejrroiiud. This
vast niKii'tinent was one splendor of
wax lights, flowers, ribbons, flair
mirrors, nnd silver plate. One of the
regular tcasts of the occasion was,
"Miss Shippen and her knight." Af
ter simper the eomiiaiiy returned to
the ball loom, and kept up the dance
till four in the morning, reaching
their lionies about sunrise.
The festival, as Maj. Andre re
marks, was the most splendid ever
given by an army to its chief. And
little, indeed, had tltat child' done to
deserve it. An old officer of the Brit
ish army, who perceived the folly ol
paying such extravagant honors to a
General who liad won no victories,
said sadly: "What will Washington
think of all tills.4"
Exactly a month from that day the
British army evacuated Philadelphia,
and away they sped across Jersey,
with Gen. Washington at their heels.
A day or two aftei a hotly of Ameri
can troops marched in, commanded
by Gen. Benedict Arnold. All was
changed. Tlio red coats had disap
pearedblue coats were in the ascend
ant; and the new Yankee General
was the foremost man in tlie city.
Arnold, a vain, weak; man, ever fond
of display and luxury, appropriated
one of tlie handsomest houses In the
town, where he set up a costly estab
lishment, kept a great many servants,

In inviting his guests, as tlie patri
otic portion of tin people remarked
with surprise, he was as likely to se
lect Tories as Whigs. He seemed to
court tlie adherents of tin King, nnd
he frequently had at his table tlie
wives and daughters of public ene
mies, wl had been publicly proserili
cd, and had found refuge with the en
emy in Xew York. Among the fam
ilies who attracted ills regard was that
of Edward Shippen, and lie was soon
observed to nay particular court to his
daughter, Margaret- Arnold was
then a widower, thirty-eight years of
age, just twenty years older than the
young lady. Ere long he formally

In the meantime Arnold had become
so odious by his extravagance, and his
insolent, overbearing conduct lo the
people, that Congress was obliged to
take lognlzanoeof the fact. On the
eve of nut marriage lie was ordered lo
be tried by a court martial. MissShlp
pen, however, was true to her engage
ment, and married him five days after,
The court martial, as every one knows,
sentenced him to be reprimanded by
Gen. Washington, and lie was repri
"Our profession," said General
Washington to him, ''is the chastest
oi'all ; even the shadow of a find t tarn
ishes the luslic of our finer achieve
ments, 'lite least 4nadveuture may
rob ns of the favor, so hard to be ac
quired. I reprehend you for having
forgotten that, in proportion as you
had rendered yourself formidable to
your enemies, you should have liecn
guarded ;utd temperate in your de
jiortnient toward your feliow-citlxens.
Exhibit anew those noble qualities
which have placet you on the list of
our most valued commanders. I will,
myself, furnish you. as far as it may
lie in my power," with opportunities ol
regaining lite esteem of your country,"
This was more like an enlogitun
than a reprimand; hut it dk! not
touch lite lata it of Arnold, who went
from the presence of his commander,
not io regain tne esteem ot ins coun
try, but to betray his country.
A year parsed away. He was in
command at West 'Point, in corres
pondence with tlie enemy. Whether
she shared her husband's secret during
those months of preparation, will per
haps never be known with certainty.
Just before (lie explosion ot the trea
son at West Point, Arnold sent for his
wife and child to join him, and 1 have
seen the letter which lie wrote to her
on this occasion, telling her of the
best way of reaching bun, and what
houses she could sleep at on the road.
Arnold and his wife were seated at
the breakfast table, with Hamilton,
Lafayette and an aid. In the midst
of tlie meal a horseman alighted at tin
door; and, a moment after, a letter
was placed in Arnold's liauds, which
informed hint of his ruin. He con
trolled his countenance, rose quietly
from the table, aial beeoned his wife
to follow him. They went up stairs
to their room, w here lay their infant
child ; anil there he told her that he
was a mined man nnd must fly, that
instant, for his life. She fell senseless
to the floor. Leaving her there, lie
rushed from tlie room, hurried down
stairs, sent some one to her assistance,
and tlieu returned to tlie breakfast
room, lie told ids guests that Gen.
Washington was coming, and he must
make haste to prepare lor his recep
tion. He mounted the horse of the
messenger w1k hail brought tlie letter,
Coi. Hamilton lias left us an inter
esting account of Mrs. Arnold's de
meanor after her husband's departure.
He says site remained frantic all day,
and licensed every one who approach
ed Iter ol an intention to nnmlcr her
child, Site continued, he says, to rave
until she was ulteiiy exhausted, lint
Col. Burr, in his old age, was accus
tomed to give a very different account
of the matter, lie had known Mrs.
Arnold from her infancy, aial he de
clared that she knew all aliout her
husband's treason from tlie lioglnning.
and lie used to relate a scene which lie
said he witnessed nt the house of Mrs.
Prevost, whom ho afterwards married,
which somewhat confirms his opinion.
Mrs. Arnold, it will be remembered,
was sent home to her father, escorted
by a party of horse, and remained for
a night at tlie house of Mrs. Prevost,
where Col. Burr was. Mrs. Arnold,
he said, burst into a room dressed in a
riding habit, and was about to speak
to the lady of the house, when, seeing
him in the dim light of the apartment,
and not recognizing him, sin? asked
"Am I safe? Is this a gentleman
I' pon discovering who he was, she
told them how she had deceived Gen.
Washington, Col. Hamilton, and the
other American officers by her fraiitie
outcries; and slie declared that she
not only knew of the treason, but that
It was slie who bad Induced her hus
band to commit it.
Tlds was Col. Burr's story, to which
the render may attach tlie credit which
la; thinks it deserves. Arnold himself
docs not say that she was ijwrtnt of
his intention to surrender the fortress.
In the well known letter which lie
sent back to Gen. Washington from
ino vulture, in says:
,'jtroni m Kuown in
The authorities of Pennsvlvatiia he
lleved. with Burr, that she was a trai
tor. Her papers were seized, and al
though nothing was fonnd In them t
criminate her, she was not permitted
to remain at her fatlier'o house, which
she said she desired to do.
Her father offered to give security
that, during tlie war she would write
no letters to her husliand, and send 0
the Government, unopened, any let
ters slie might receive from hiui
Her oiler was refused, and tlnv order
ed her to depart, nnd not to' return

In society, to use tlie language oi the
time, as "a star of tlie first magni
tude." In England, too. whither shu
accompanied her husband, she attract
ed much attention for her lieauty, and
was much flattered in Tory circles.
The British Government gave 'Arnold,
in compensation for his American
htm, something less than seven thou
sand pounds, and settled upon lib
family a jiension of a thousand pounds
a year; which was to lie continued as
long as the husband or the wife' sur
vived. Their family increased iu
England. Arnold, 'finding himself
pinched upon an income of thirteen
hundred pounds per annum, went up
on a trading voyage to Halifax; with
what success Is not known. It was
thought by some that he was glad tb
leave England for awhile to escape
the contempt In which he was held
even by those who hat) employed him.
Mrs. Arnold lived to 1801, when slie
died, aged forty-three years. That In
fant son whom slie liad Imld in her
iirmu, as described above, entered tat)
British army In 170S, rose to the rank
of Meuteiiant-Goncral, and was still
living as late as 1851. One of her

worthy gentleman, who lias conversed
with American visitors iipou hi

in Canada, wliero they acquired com
petent estates, and were living In 1820.

At tf revival meeting in one of
the interior tow us of Mississippi, the
minister observed one of tin congrega
tion to lie sound asleep. Shocked at
such a sight, the good man went up to
the unconscious person, awoke him,
and asked him if lie was a christian.
"Xo," said tlie man, "I am an editor
of a newspaper." "Then let iispraj,"
replied the devoted minister greatly as
tonished at such an answer.
