Tho visitor to Washington, Geor gia, has probably noticed, on the way from the depot to his hotel, a line old place, now descrtqdy allied. Ilaywnhd. For many years it was} <iceupied by a wealthy Southern fam ily. There is an a veil no of fine trees ending, Just in front of the phiKza, with a niugbififcit whitcoak, an old Wa.V ijp*J lu^VaVod garden otune Vide, and in tho grovo n beautiful stream- 1 of water. The mansion, now almost in ruins, was nothing but a plain country home, with a long pia/oca, and with exquisite views from the windows. It was the residence of Judgo Garnett Andrews, whose name, with those who knew him, re vives the recollection of unsftUicd in tegrity. The family circle was a very cultivated ouo. Few men have appreciated intelli gence in women as did Judge An drews and his daughter. Funny was, iu consequence, a reader from her childhood. No ouo ever imagined, in tlie bloom of Fanny Andrews* youth, that she would ever leave the privacy in which Southern girls were so carefully reared to try her fortune in the world of books. She was never handsome, lint she is an < legaut looking woman, Dili a line, expressive face. Iler Grecian nose gives the features an iulelkctunl appearance. Slio horsed says, people call her hair “auburn,’’ to her face, but “ red*’ behind her back. It is pale, auburn, and is becomingly ar ranged in Unify pulls. She is ol me\ dium height, with a graceful, woman ly figure, and tier carriage is very erect and dignified. She is always well dressed ; indict, she confesses to a feminine love Of dress. Her man ners and conversation are charming, fake litecirysubjecLs unless some one else introduces them*. oi tho author, that the ft iner is her favorite character. The villagers, among who|P|Iiss. A. lives, who aro very fond and proud of her, think one trait of Mildred Lorinir like her: tho firing like her; tho cool, quiet, Womanly courage with which, .standing in IIiq ruin? of her home, she faced and fought inevitable . misfortune. “A Mere *Tdventurer” slmwi a up-irked impivvemeut in finishjover its predecessor.

The J&ikdelphia Ilwnc Nujazine *a& of U, “tlie snar}> inaiglit into tl.^ the world, and the bits ofVfBSom scattered abundantly through .the pages, would do credit to Thackeray, while the fine expression reminds’ us constantly of George Eliot.

'A'ho novels of Aliss Andrews, espe cially the last, have met with far more flattering notice at the North than at the f^cuth. Hie favorable reviews from Northern pens might bo mista ken, but they certainly could not ru- suit from partiality. “A Mere' Ad venturer” lias been more praised in fastidious Boston than in an other place, but it lias received very wide commendation. The Chicago limes even says, in a notice too long to copy in lull, “there is so much force, natur alness, and dash ia it, that if the au thor does not keep on her gnaid, she will ouo of these days startle us with the long expected and still dilatory, ‘Great American Novel.’” And to .show tlie wide circulation and praise the book has obtained in places where an undisguised Foutlieru woman— probably an unrepentant rebel—could hardly ho expected to receive wide'* served praise, the San Francisco (’/iron. i»We, in a very Thu dishonest speculations of men L„„ L,,,,,,,,.!, .1 i.„. i.-.i i.
