ANOTHER GEORGE WASHINGTON. A very remarkable fact is that another George Washington has been discovered in history one who anticipated his famous namesake's rebellious spirit by 125 years. At the Bermuda assizes, November 11-22, 1650, "The Jury of our Soveraigne Lord the Kinge doe present George Washington, of Hambleton Tribe, Taylor, as a false Traytor against our most gratious and dread Soveraigne and his Liedge Lord the Kinge, &c., haveinge not the feare of God in his hearte, but seduced by the Instigation of the devil, maliciously and traytorously, on the 25th day of De- cember, in the yeare of our Lord 1648, at the house of Roger Axon, in the said Tribe, did then and there advisedly and directly speak and say in the hearing of the said Roger Axon these words—viszt, the Kinge has sould his subjects to Popery; and, farther, the said George Washington did then and there maliciously and traytorously say the Kinge was a Rogue and deserved to be hanged seven years ago. The said George Washington having uttered" all these tray- torous and malicious words to the takinge away of his Majesty's whole power, and that he is nor was sorry, therefore, to the great scandal and derogation of the person and Royalty of our said Soveraigne Lord tha Kinge, to the subversion of the State, to the Realme of England, and the government of this place, and oon- trary to a form of a Statute in that case made and provided, and also against the^peace of our Soveraigne Lord the Kinge, his crowne, and dignity. To which indictment, being by the Grand Inquest found a true bill, hee pleaded not guilty, and for his further tryal did put himselfe uppon God and the Country, which beinge a Jury of 12 sworne men, did find him guilty, whereupon he prayed his appeale for England, which was granted him." Charles I. being then headless, Charles II. an absentee, we learn no more of this earlier George Washington's appeal or fate. But it is not improbable that he found his way to Virginia, where the Restoration and .the enthusiastic loyalty of Virginia led to the suppression of this bit of his personal history.
