[Froui. the Boston Dally Advertiser.] It is nearly 1mlf n century sfucn it occurred, and it ought ngo to boon dead nntl turiu'd to aslies. Slr.H. Eaton, whoso reputfttiou was the pivot on which turned thfi of President Jackson's possibly the defeat of Calhoun'a aspirations for tho Presidency, is a vigorous lady, yours old, has late made n visit to Washington, the scene of her early historical career, and given to the public, for the first time in this generation, hc-r version of tho attain which, whtju they occured, mnda a national scandal almost as absorbing as that of Joilny. The ubiquitious reporter, pencil in hand, has had an interview with her. the narrative of which is given to tho world through the columns of n WcnLington jour- nal. We are told that fit first Mrs. Eaton objected to conversing on tho topic, partly because, "under the directions of her pastor, Hov. Mr. Deems of New York, her life was being written by a competent biographer, to bo published after her But the per- suasive reporter, with the tacit and perse- verance belonging to his class, overcame her scruples, when she, led on by skillful in- terrogatories, revealed ibo romance with a freedom and spirit showing that it was still fresh in her memory. Her father, William O'Neal, who kept a large, old fashioned tavern in a favorite of many members of Congress during the rich enough to afford her every indulgeucc, and, as she had what is sometimes called "the fatal gift of and n. lively manner, she was early a notable girl in Washington. She relates, although we suppose not from memory, that when she was two weeks old her, mother sat up to cue her father's hair for his attendance at tho funeral of Waahington. who was a friend of tho family and a frequent guest at. their house. After this there is a blank in tho story as told by this witness imtill her Kith year, when sbo was married to Joha Bowie Timberlake, a purser in tho navy. History has not been kind to his memory; but Sirs. Eaton is loyal, and earnestly denies that he died by his own hand. her at his death all his property by will, and sent his watch and ring to Gen. Eaton, a warm, personal friend, "who had known us n long lime.'' For two weeks after tho an- nouncement of his death she never left her room, such was tho violence of her grief. This was in iSi'S. In December of that year, Gen. Eaton made her a offer of mar- riage, and they were soon after married, she then being in her year. She says the marriage excited no malicious remark then, and it was not till tho following March that she begar to feel the envy of women. Gen. Jackson had then been inaugurated, aud taken Gen. Eaton iuto his cabinet as secre- tary of war. "I had she says, "and was then, flaltoicd ns a handsome woman. Was fond of society, gny as a lark, full of nonsense; some times, may bo, a little origi- nal aud lawless in my remarks, but, sir, bo- fore Heaven and my God, as innocent of ac- tual wrong to any one as an unborn babo." The talo told to her discredit, which she pronounces a "monstrous was carried to tho president by a Philadelphia clergy- man named Ely. Mrs. Eaton takesn wicked kind of satisfaction in a remark that it is n daughter of Mr. Ely who is scandalized in counectipu with the recent robbery of dia- monds by a Russian grand duke. When she henn! of'Mr. ElyVIetter to the president sho posted off to Philadelphia and made him give her the name of his in- formant, who proved to bo Kev. Mr. Campbell of Washington, after which she returned nnd confronted Campbell with her husband. Campbell suggested that as their business was delicate it would be well to have a witness of the conversation, and Col, Towson. "an old. gray headed coming in, just then, he was requested to stand by as a mutual friend. During this interview a dispute arose as to the date of the sailing of tho first husband's ship, and they went to the navy department to inves- tigate tho point. While thero sho detected Towson altering the date to make it verify Campbell's theory of her guilt, showing that ho wns in the plot against liar, whereupon Rho exclaimed: "Great God 1 am and her husband iiaid, "Sir, yon must an- swer for at the snmo time attacking him. In the melee sho fell fainting, strik- ing her head ngninst a sofa, and just then Campbell was hoard to express a regret that he had had anything to do with the matter, and to say that he got his story from Dr. Craven. She continues as follows; "Now Dr. Craven was dead, and I could not speak to him in his grave; so I went to his pastor, Bcv. Obadiah Hrown.
