himself in pursuance of the priclamation. In this

l.etten yesterday closed a lengthy investigation of
a cbarge against her. bchwarm, who keeps a
c-ttee house at the Port niarket,of surreptitiouily
obtaining posseiion of a bauk box belonging to
.ilius I . tCohen, a buthet.r, who died on the 11th
F' bruary last. There was no proof whatever to
l,-ustantiate the complaint and the prosecution was
dismissed. Mrs. Cohen, the widow of the deceased,
n erely supposed that the bcx contained forty or
ffty thousand dollars in greenback., whercas
the porter of the bank who saw it opened by
( oien in the bank, about two months before he
dud, said it contained documents which appeared
to be moirtga1ed paper. The suspicion seems to
have rested upon Mr. Schwarm, frnm the circum
statnce that the deceased had intrusted hint with
the care of a box supposed to contain a certif
tare from the bank el the deposit of the bans
b,,x in qui stion, but there was no proof of the
tIs t ; il.e key of the box intrusted to Schwarm
was found in Mr. Cohen's pocket when he died ;
the box was given up by Mr. Schwarm to Mrs.
Cohen the day after the funeral, and
the box, the porter testified, was ttken
out on the day of the death by some well dressed
n.an, not Mr. Schwarm. B4i-ilei. several wit

Acd at the same time to humbly crave the par

and not as we had it, Miss Ernestine Kunotz. on
wtore fair brow the Aural diadem was placed.
The truth is that, as a bird would be which should
attempt to gaze at the sun, we were dazed by the
splendor of the court which we attempted to de.
s-ribe, and, in the admiration of queen and maids
of bonor. forgot duty in pleasure. So we plead
guilty, and commend ourself to the mercy of the
court, promising that "we will never do so
again." The next thing to be considered is
Whsabhsall we say of them? Shall we again re
count how sallantry shall contend for the privi

graceful and skillfit, where all are so fall of grace
and skill, shall name the fairest, where all are so
fair-a task most difficult, we wean, but one that
v ill to the victor be made eAsy by the tuition of
allection ? Shall we whisper to the belles that
ach rival belle and each eligible beau will be at
the ball to-night, and to outshine the one and at
tract the other are tasks worthy of her highest
eflorts and demanding her every energy?
S!.all we hint to each beau that such an oppor

ofrcrs to him to become the " observed of all ob
