So well their want he pictured.
That when the plate waa paaaed,
Each lUt'ner felt his pocket,
And goodly anms were caat;
For all moat lend a shoulder
To posh the rolling car
That carried light and comfort
That night, their wanta and sorrows
Lay heary on my soul,
And deep in meditation,
I took my moraine atroll;
Till something caught my mantle.
With eager erasp and wild.
And looking down with wonder,
I aaw a little child.
A pale and pony creature.
In rags and dirt forlorn;
What could she want! 1 questioned.
Impatient to be cone.
With trembling voice, she answered:
"We lire just down the street.
And mammy abeTa a dyin.
And we're nothing left to eat
Down In a wretched basement,
Wltbmonld upon the walla.
Through whose half-buried windows
God s sunshine never falls;
Where cutd, and want, and hunger.
Crouched near her as she lay,
I found a fellow-creature
Gasping her life away.
A chair, a broken table,
A bed of dirty straw.
A hearth all dark and tireless
But these I scarcely aaw;
For the mournful sight before me.
The sad and sick'ning show
On! never had I pictured
A scene so full of woe.
The famished and the naked.
The babes that pine fr bread.
The squalid group that huddled
Around the dying bed;
All this distress and sorrow

Were close beside my door.
And I had passed them heedless,
A thousand times liefore.
Alasl for the cold and hungry.

passion for this lovely attendant frw excessive,
and the arrival of a new favorite of the same sex,
waa looked upon with some pleasure by theeclips
ed remainder of the palace idlers.
Elizabeth summoned Xadege, and committed
Mademoiselle de Beaumont temporarily to her
charge; but the same mysterious magnetism
which had reached the heart of the tzarine, seem
ed to kindle, quite as promptly, the affect ions of
her attendant, Nadege was no sooner alone with
her new friend, than she jumped to hr neck,
smothered her with kisses, called her by every
endearing epithet, and overwhelmed her with
questions, mingled with tho moat childlike excla
mations of wonder at her own inexplicable love
for a stranger. In an hour, she had shown to
the new demoiselle all the contents of the little
boudoir in which she lived ; talking to her of her
loves and hates at the Russian conrt; of her home
in Mecklcnben:, and her present situation in
short, poured out her heart with the uaf abandon
of a child. The young Marquis had never seen
"ab lovely a creature; and Responsible as '.he felt
his difficult and delicate situation, he returned
the affection 'so innocently lavished upon him,
and by the end of this first fatal hour, was irre
coverably in love. And. cav as his life had been
at the French court, it was the first, and subse
quently proved to be the deepest passion of his
On the tzarine' return to her private apart
ment, she summoned her newfaorite, and su
perintended, with condescending solicitude, the
arrangements for her palace lodging. Nadege in
habited a small tower adjoining the bed room of
her mistress, and above this was an unoccupied
room, which, at the present snggestion of the fai
ry little attendant, was allotted, to the newcomer.
The staircase opened by one door into the private
gardens, and by the opposite, into the corridor
leading immediately to the imperial chamber.
The Marquis's delicacy would fain have made
some objection to this very intimate location;
but he could hazard nothing against the interests
of his sovereign, and he trusted to a speedy ter
mination of his disguise with the attainment of
his object. Meantime, the close neighborhood of
the fair Nadege was not the most intolerable of
The Marquis' task was a very difficult one. He
was instructed, liefore abandoning his disguise
and delivering his secret dispatch, to awaken the
intent of the tzarine on the two subjects to
which the documents had reference; viz: a form
er partiality of her Majesty for Louis, and a form
erly discussed project of seating the Prince de

"long succeeded in cutting off all approach of
inese Tomes to tne ear or the tzarine, that her
Majesty had probably forgotten them altogether.
Weeks paiHrd, and the opportunities to broach
these delicate subjects had been inanspiciously
rare. Mademoiselle do Beanmout, it is true, had
completely eilipsed the favorite Xadege; and
Elizabeth, in her hours of relaxation from state
affairs, exacted 'the constant attendance of the
new favorite in her private apartment. Unt the
almost constant presence of some other maids of
honor opposed continual obstacles and interrup
tions, and thetazarine herself was not always dis
posed to talk of matters more serions than the
current trifles of the hour. She was extremely
indolent in her personal habits; and often reclin
ing at length upon cushions on the floor of her
boudoir, she laid her imperial head in the lap of
the embarrassed demoiselle, and was soothed to
sleep by reading and the bathing of her temples.
And dnring this period, she exacted freqncntly of
tlin Marquis, with a kind of instinctive mistrust,
promises of continuance for life in her personal
Hut there were sweeter hours for the enamored
Ln Chetardie thau those passed in the presence of
his partial and imperial mistress. Encirrled by
sentinels, and guarded from all intruxion of oth
er eyes, in the inviolable sanctuary of royalty, the
beautiful Nadege, impassioned she knew not why,
in her line for her new companion, was ever
wi'hiu call, and happy in deotmg to him all her
faculties of caressiug endearment. He had not
yet dared to risk the interests of his sovereign by
a disclosure of his sex, even in confidence of love.
He could not trust Nadege to play so difficult a
part as that of Kisse.ssor of so embarrassing aso
cret in the presence of the shrewd and observing
tazarine. A betrayal, too, would at onco put an
end to his happiness. With the slight arm of the
fair and relying creatnre about his waist, and her
head pressed against his breast, they passed tho
lialniv nights of the Rnssian summer in pacing
the flowery alleys of the imperial garden, dis
coursing, with but one reserve, on every subject
that floated to their lips. It required, however,
all the self-control of La Clietanlie and all the fa
voring darkness of night, to conceal his smiles at
the aaireconfessiomi of tho unconscious girl, and
her wonderings at the peculiarity of her feelings.
She had thonght, hitherto, that there were affec
tions in her nature which could only be called
forth by a lover. Yet now, the thought of caress
ing another than her friend of repeating to any
human ear, least of all to a man, those new born
vows of love filled her with alarm and horror.
She felt that she had givwi her heart irrevocably
awav and to a woman! All, with what dcliri-
ou,"thongh silent passion, La Clietanlie drew her
to his bosom, and, with the presnre of his lips up
on hers, interrupted those sweet confessions!
Vet the time at last drew near for the waking
from this celestial dream". The disguised diplo

still sewed safely in his corsets. There
remained nothing for him but to seize a fa vorable
opportunity, anil, niththe delivery oflns mis
sive, to declare his sex to the tzanne. There was
risk to life and liberty in this but the Marquis
knew not fear, and he thought but of its consc-

He had determined to disclose himself to her, re
new his vows of love in his proper gnise, and ar
range, while he had access and opportunity, some
means for uniting their destinies hereafter.
As he opened the door of the turret, Nadege
flew up the stair to.meet him, and observing the
cloak in the faint glimmer of the stars, she play
fully endeavored to envelope herself in it. Bnt,
seizing her hands, La Chetardie turned and gli

The Empress was in slippers and rohe de nait,
and, as if fate had determined that this well-kept
secret should not survive the hour, her Majesty
laid her arm within that of her supposed masque
rader, and led the way to the palace. She was
wakeful, and wished to be read to sleep. And,
with many a compliment to the beauty of her fa
vorite in male attire, and many a playful caress,
she arrived at the door of her cnamlier.
Bnt the Marquis could go no farther. He had
hitherto been spared the embarrassment of pass
ing this sacred threshhold, for the pa$$ee Empress
had secrets of toilet for the establishment of her
person, which she trusted only to the eyes of an
antiquated attendant. La Chetardie bad never
passed beyond the boudoir, which was between
the antechamber and the bedroom, and the time
had come for the disclosure of his secret- He
fell ou his knees and announced himself a man!
Fortunately they were alone. Incredulous at
first, the Empress listened to his asseverations,
however, w ith more amnsement than displeasure,
and the immediate delivery of the dispatches,
niththe commendations of the disguised embas
sador by his royal master to the forgiveness and
kindness of the Empress, amply secured his par
don. But it was on condition that he should re
sume his disguise, and remain in her service
Alone in his tower, (for Nadegu had disappear
ed, and he knew enouch of the cruelty of Kliza-
licth to dread the consequences to the poor girl of
venturing on direct mqumes as to ner late,) la
Clietanlie after a few weeks fell ill; and fortu
nate, even at this price, to escape from the silken
fetters of the enamored tzarine, he departed, un
der the care of the imperial physician, for the
more genial climate of ir ranee not without reit
erated promises of return, however, and offers,
in that event, of unlimited wraith and advance
ment. But as the Marquis made his way slowly to
ward Vienna, a gleam of light dawned on his sad
ness. The Princess Sophia Charlotte was newly
affianced to George the Thinl of England, and
this daughter of the house of Mecklenberg had
been the playmate of Nadege Stein, from infan
cy till the time when Nadege was sent to the tza
nne by the Duchess of Mecklenberg. Making
a confidant of the kind physician who accompa
nied him, La Chetanlie was confirmed, by the
good man's better experience and knowledge, in
tho belief that Nadege had shared the same fate
of every female of the court who bad ever awak
ened the jealousy of the Empress. She was doubt
less exiled to Siberia; but, as she had committed
no voluntary fault, it was probably withont oth
er punishment; and, with a playmate on the
throne of England, she might be demanded and
recovered ere long, in all her freshness and beauty.
Yet the recent fate of the fair Eudoxie Lapoukin,
who, for an offense lint little more distasteful to
the trarinr. and lieen pierced throngh the tongue
with a hot iron, whipped nilb the Knout and ex
iled for life to Siberia, hung like a iloud of evil
angnry over his mind.
The Marquis suddenly determined that be
would see the affianced Princess, and plead with
her for her friend, before the splendors of a throne
should make her inaccessible. The excitement of
this hope had given him new life, and hn easily
persuaded Ms attendant, as they entered the
gates of Vienna, that he required his attendance
no farther. Alone with his own servants, h'e re
sumed his femalo attire, and directed his course
to Slecklenbcrg Strelitz.
The Princess, had maintained an intimate cor
respondence with her playmate up to the time of
her betrothal, and the name of .Mademoiselle de
Beaumont was passport enough. La Chetanlie
had sent forward his servant, ou arriving at the
town, in the neighborhood of the ducal residence,
and the reply to his missive was brought back by
one of the officers in attendance, n ith onlers to
conduct the demoiselle to apartments in the cas
tle. He was received with all honor at the palace-gate
by a chamlierlain in waiting, who led
the way to a suite of rooms adjoining those of the
Princess, where, after lieing left alone for a few
minutes, he was familiarly isited by the betroth
ed girl, and -o era helmed, as formerly by her
friend, with the most embarrassing caresses. In
the next moment, however, the door was hastily
flung open, and Nadege, like a stream of light,
fled through the room, hnng npon the neck of tho
speechless and overjojed Marquis, and ended
with convulsions of mingled tears and laughter.
Tlie moment that he could disengage himself from
her arms, La Chetardie requested to lie left for a
moment alone. He felt the danger and impro
priety of longer maintaining his disguise. He
closed the door on the unwilling demoiselles, hast
ily changed his dress, and, with his swonl nt his
side, he entered the adjoining roceptiou-room of
the Princess, where Mademoiselle de Beaumont
was impatiently awaited.
Tho scene which followed, the mingled confus
ion and joy of Nadege, the subsequent hilarity,
masquerading at the castle, and the particulars
of the marriage of the Marquis de la Chetanlie to
his fair fellow maid-of-honor, must be left to the
reader's imagination. We have room only to ex
plain the re-appearance of Nadege at Mecklenberg-
Nadege retired to her tnrret at the imperative
command of the Empress, sd and troubled; but
waited wakefully and anxiously for the re-entrance
of her disguised companion. In the course
of an hour, however, the sound of a sentinel's
musket, set dor n at her door, informed her that
she was a prisoner. She knew Elizabeth, and the
Duchess of Mecklenbnrg, with aud equal knowl
edge of the tzarine's character, had provided ber
with a resource against the imperial cnielty,
should she have occasion to nse it. She crept to
thn liattlements of the tower, and fastened a
handkerchief to the side looking over the public
The followiug morning, at daylight, Nadege
was summoned to prepare for a journey, and in
an honr, she was led between soldiers to a car
riage at the palace-gate, and departed by the
northern egress of the city, with a gnanl of three
mounted Cossacks. In two hours from that time,
the carriage was overtaken, the gnanU overpow
ered, and the horse's heads turned in the direc
tion of Moscow. After many difficulties and dan
gers, during which she found herself nnder the
charge of a Meckienhergian officer in the service
of the tzarine, she reached VilSha in safety, and
was immediately concealed by her friend in the
neighborhood of the palace at Mecklenberg. to
.remain bidden till inquiry should be over. The
arrival or Mademoiselle tie Meanmonr, lorino loss
of whose life or liberty she had incessantly wept
with dread and apprehension, was joyfully com
municated to her by her friends; and so the rea

of the far-famed beauty in the French court in
the time of Louis XV. the Marchioness de la

THE ADAM) FAMILY.
Their CniecUn wish Aaaeriemai Treaties.
No career of a family in public and political
life, bo. far as we now remember, has been more
remarkable than that of the Adamses for three
generations. Not to refer to the fact that father
aud son held the highest office ill the gift of the
people at home, father, son and grandson have
represented this country as Ambassadors to for
eign courts, and all three staud specially promi
nent as parties to the most importaut negotiations
for the wise settlement of international difficul
ties between the United States and England.
John Adams, of Revolutionary memory, was the
associate nf Franklin, Jay, and Laurens, in final
ly adjusting the terms of the separation of an in
dependent republic from the exactions of tyran
nical monarchy. John Quincy Adams was one of
the Commissioners, with Henry Clay and others,
at Ghent; and now Charles Francis Adams stands
ouoof the foremost of our representatives at Ge
neva. Otherwise than ns diplomatists have this trio
of statesmen gained high repute; bnt perhaps
their crowning services to their native land aud
the world are those which have distinguished
them as negotiators; we say have distinguished
them, for as Minister to the Conrt of St. James
during the war of the rebellion, the last-named
and the living representative of the three earned
the fame which instantly pointed to him as the
man of all others for his present responsible ap
pointment. Among the reasons for rejoicing that
lie consented to accept the place so fitly tendered
him, the success of his two immediate pro
genitors is an augury that the honor and rights
of tho nation are safe as intrusted to his hands,
and that while neither of these will suffer the
slightest detriment, we may lie sure that he will
do all in his power to avert the terrible alterna
tive of war.
Inspeaking thus particularly of the career of
the Adams, family, we do not forget the eminent
personages in this emergency w ho are charged
with the administration of onr foreign relations;
but this referenco to the past and to what may
lie called an inherited prestige, may certainly
suggest a presumption in favor of a repetition of
those amicable results which have heretofore
lieen obtained to the great gain of humanity and
Christian civilization. Bottom Trantcript.

think it advisable "then, the whole country being
in mourning, to publish it, and held the letter
till fall. Abont that time my second letter was
written. All the lionler States Democracy were
howling about the great influx of negroes which
the war would cause. They said they wouldn't
work, and mnst go to the poor house or jails, and
t bus lie a bnnlen to the eommnnitv. There was
one fellow named Flenncr who lived in the town
of Findley. He didn't work himself, and his
family were supported by the township, and yet
he howled the loudest of them all. I met him
one day with a petition against tho negroes,
which he was getting signed, and made it the ba
sis of a letter, in which I nsed Mr. Flenner"s
name. I prodnccd this in the Hancock Jefferso
nian, which I was running at the time. It had a
sndden and great popularity all over the conn
try, and it was in this gradual manner that Mr.
Nasby was born. I think Flenner died from gan

The bald may now take courage and smile at
the frequent summer fly. It is no new lotion that
is to bring back the hairs of their yonth and in
nocence, bnt a system of planting hairs in the
smooth skin of the pate, exactly as cabbages are
set ont in a garden. A discoverer, whose name
ran not tie Ion ir concealed from the cratefnl
world, has invented a plan of replanting the hair
where it is lost. As plants grow, so does hair. It
is rooted and thrives like a vegetable. The ope
ration of restoring the hair is very simple put
healthy hairs into the eyes of needles and draw
the needles throngh the npper skin, the epider
mis; being drawn through, the hairs are left in
the skin, as a thread may be left in any material
by a stitcher.' The root, which have been ex
tracted with their bulbs complete, are brought
nnder the epidermis. The surface so operated on
is protected at first by a linen band, bnt the hairs
soon take root, grow; and flourish. It is not sta
.! ri..th,- liavinir the akin nnnetured in this
wv is disairreeable. and how often it is fatal. If
it is a success, the plan has many advantages;
one can have any color of hair he may elect, and
he can plant a variety of colors, and thus make
his appearance striking and beantiful.

Tun Eqcixoctial Storm. Prof. F. Loomis, of
Yale College, twenty years ago reported, after a
thorough examination of the meteorological re
cords of London and the United States, against
the common belief in the occurence of a storm at
the time of the autumnal equinox. The London
series extend frqui 1744 to 1843. His conclusion
was as follows:
From all these observations, I infer that the
popular notion of unusual fall of rain either in
Old England or New England about the time of
the autumnal equinox is wholly unfounded, and
is akin to those superstitions which make some
"particular day" for the entire month, or make the
tall of rain dependent on the aunual meeting of
Mr. W. C. Redfield, the distinguished metereol
ogist, also reconls that there is nothing in the tra
ditional notion of a special connection between
the equinox and the storms of that period.

- TKXAR CATTLE.
In Texas the stock owners and drovers, as a
general thing, let their cattle, roam pretty
much at will upon the plains, and a brand
upon the animal represents the title of owner
ship. The advertising columns of a paper pub
lished in a stock region of that 8tate are a
curious stndy, as they are principally taken np
with the descriptions of the various brands in
nse, each owner, of course, laying claim to all
animals that wear his pecnliar mark. Yon
often hear Texans speak of Maverick cattle.
The term Maverick is applied 'to all animals
that have neither mark nor brand upon them,
and originated in this way. Long ago, an old
citizen of San Antonio, Colonel S. A. Maverick,
E laced upon an Island, in Matagorda Bay, a small
enl of cattle, but being absorbed in other busi
ness, he forgot all almut the henl nntil years
afterward, when he learned from some gentleman
that the cattle had increased to such an extent
that the island would hanlly provide them sus
tenance. "This," to n note an authority, " brought
the matter to his recollection, and Eo immediately
dispatched men to get them off, and bring them
up the couiitry. They were in a state of nature,
very few of them had overseen a horse, and rarely
ever a human being. They were, with great
difficulty, driven across the shallow, bay, and
throngh the marshes adjacent, and finally reach
ed the main land, but from misfortune, either the
desertion of the hands, or the stampedes of the
cattle, tbey got away and dispersed them
selves over a limited section of the country.
Another set of men were now sent to gather up
the cattle, who claimed everything without mark
or brand to be Maverick's.' Of course he never
got them all. bnt "among the lot that finally
reached the 8alado, five miles from San Antonio,
were eight hundred bulls. This becoming known
to stockmen and others, and the calculations they
wonld make for him as to how many ranches he
could start, how many cows he mnst have, the
Erice of bull beef, and whether he threw in the
ide and bonis, nearly ran the old old man to the
verge of distraction. We never knew how he
disposed of these bull : the last we heard of them,
t no tllino Mr. Martin, a new comer from
Tennessee. " For God' sake, help yourself to all
yon want." In grazing cattle in lexas, ine neru
