A STORY OF RUSSIA.
THE EUPEPtOa AXD HIS DAUGUTER.
A few years since,
tl.erc was ia the
city of Jetersburg, a youug girl, so
beautiful and 'so lovely, that the great
est priuce of Europe, Lad he met her,
ercu iu a peasant's 'ut, uihjlit well have
turned hid buck upon princesses to oiler
his hand and his crown. ,-
But far from having first seen , the
light iu a peasant's hut, sha was born iu
he shadow of the proudes" "throne on
earth. It was Mario . Kicohrjiwna, the
adored daughter ofie Emperor of Rus
sia. As her father saw her blooming like
the May-flower, and sought for by all
thc.ieirs of royalty, he cast his eye up
oa the fairest, the richest, and the most
powerful of them, and, with tho smile
of a father, a king, said to her.
My child ; you are now of an age
to marry ; and I have chosen for you the
priuce who will make you a queen, and
the niau who will render you happy. "
'.' The man who will make me happy,"
stammered the blushing princess, with a
sigh, which waa. the-only objection to
which her heart gave utterance. , ' Speak,
father," she said, ..as she saw a frown
gathering on the brow of the Czar "Speak,
and your.Majesty shall be obeyed.",,
j," Obeyed 1 " exclaimed the Emperor,
trembling for the first time iu his life.
' It is theu oulyas an act of obedience
that you will receive a husband from my
hauds." ,.. ..-; . ; -, . .. ...
. The young girl was silent aud con
cealed a tear. -. i - . i ,
,t Is your faith already plighted ? "
The young girl still silent. . , ,
" Explain yourself, Marie, ,1, . com
mand you.", , - ... ,,"
.... At this word, which sways sixty mill
ions of human beings, the priucesa fell
at the feet of the Czar. . .
" Yes, father, if I must tell yon, my
heart is no longer my owu ; it is bestow
ed upon a young man who knows it uot,
and who shall never know it, if such be
your wish. lie has seen ine but two or
three times at a distance, we will never
speak to each other if your majesty for
bid it P'. , . . ;
The Emperor was silent la "h'is tum.
He grew pale. Three times , he uiade
the circuit of the. saloon'. . : lie durst not
ask the same of the young man. .
- He who would have braved for a ca
price, the monarchs of the world at the
heads of their armies he, with his om
nipotence, feared this unknown youth.
who disputed with him the possession of
hu dearest treasure.
" Is it a king ? " he demanded at last.
... " The heir of a king, at least ?"
" No, father."
" A grand Duke ? "
A son of a reigQing family ? "
" No, father. " , .
At each step in the descending scale,
the Czar stopped to recover breath. .
" A stranger ? " -
" Yes, father." :
. The Emperor fell back into au arm
chair; and his face in his hands, like
Agamemnon at the sacrifice of Iphigenia.
" Is he in Russia ? " ho resumed with
" Yes, father. "
, " At St. Petersburg ? "
" Yes, father."
. And the voice of the young girl grew
" Where shall I see him? " said tho
Czar, raising with a threatening aspect.
" To-morrow, at the review. "
" How shall I recognizo him ? " re
peated the Czar, with a stamp of his
" By his. green plume and his black
"'Tiswell Qo, my daughter, and
pray God to have pity on that man.""
The princess withdrew, in a fainting
condition, and tho Emperor was lost in
" A childish caprice, " he said at last.
"I am foolish to bo disturbed at it. She
will forget it. She shall forget it!
and lips dared not utter what his heart
added. " It must be for all my power
Would be weaker than her tears.
. On the 'following day, at tho review,
the Czar, whose eagle eye embraced at a
glance, sought aud saw in his hattatious,
nought else thau a green plume and
black charger. He recognized in him,
who wore tho one rode the other, a sim
ple Colonel . of the Bavarian Light
Llorse, Maximillian Joseph Fugene Au-
goste Beauhernois, the Duke of Leuch-
tonberg, youngest child of the son of
Josephine (who was for a brief time,
Empress of Jf ranee) and of Augustie
Amelie, daughter of Maximillian Joseph,
of Bavaria, and admiral and charming
cavalier in truth, but as far luferio-r then

" There is no longer a doubt," thought
the Czar : " 'tis indeed be." . '
: And turning bis back upon the stupi
Ged stranger, he returned with Marie to
the Imperial Palace.
For six weeks, all that prudence, tem
pered with love and severity could in

of the Colonel in the heart of the prin

was resigned : at the end of the second,

Meanwuilo the Uoionel, seeing him
self in disgrace at tho court of his host,
without danug to confess to himself the
cause, did uot wait tor his dismissal to
return to the regiment. He was oa the
point of setting out for Munich, when au
aid-de-camp of tho Czar came fur him.
"I should have sot out yesterday, he
said to himself; " I might have avoided
what awaits me. . At the first flash, save
yourself from the thunderbolt."
j. ho bolt in reserve for him was the
following: Ho was ushered iuto the
cabinet, where kings were only allowed
to enter. The Emperor was pale, aud
his eyo was moist ; but his air wus firm
" Colonel Duke," said he, enveloping
and penetrating with his glauce, " you
are one 01 the handsomest otnt-ers in
Europe. It is said, aud I believe it
true, that you nosaeis au elevated mind

"What think you of the Grand Dutch
ess, my daughter Marie Nicolcewna? "
This point blank question dazzled the
young man. It is time to say that ho
admired, adored the princess, without
being fully aware of it. A simple mor
tal adores au angel of Paradise as au
artiste adores the ideal of beauty.
The Priucesa Marie, sire ! " ex
claimed he, reading at last his own
heart, without daring to read that of the
Czar ; ." your auger would crush me if
I told you what f think of her, and I
should die of joy if you permitted me
to say it. " , . ,
" You love her ; 'tis well, " resumed
the Czar, with a benignant smile ; and
royal hand, from which the Duke was
awaiting tho thunderbolt, delivered to
the Colonel the brevets of General Aid-de-Camp
of tho Emperor the brevets
of commandment of the Cavalry of the
Guards and of the regiment of Hussars
of Chief of the Corps of Cadets, and
of tho Mining Engineers- of President
of the Academy ' of Arts, and member
of the Academy of Sciences and Uni
versities, of St. Petersburg, of Moscow,
of Keasan, of tho Council, of the Mili
tary Schools, etc. All this, with tho
title of Imperial Highness, and several
millions of revenue.
' "Now," said the Czar to tho young
man, who was beside himself with joy,
will you quit the service of Bavaria
and beccme the husband of the Princess
Marie?" The young man could only
fall upon his knees, aud bathe with his
tears the bands of the Emperor.
" You Bee that I also love my daugh
ter," said the father, raising his son-in-law
on his arm's.

A SOLTIEB'S CAREEE.
Five aud twenty years ago, a sub-lieu
tenant in a French regiment, who had
been admitted to a reception (as it was
called) by Charles X, at the luilened,
was accused of having cut off a valuable
bullion tassel froui the tviudow hangings
and put it into his pocket.' lie. was in
diguant,. as a soldier 'and a gentleman
naturally would be, but the accusers pro
ceeded to extremities, searching him,
and found the gola tassel on his, person
Ho was removed from tho army, senten
ced to imprisonment, aud liberated by
the Revolution of 1830, which opened
the priaon-doora t in . many instances..
The sub-lieutenant iusisted that he was
the victim of appearances that a oou-
spiracyhad been entered into lor the pur
pose of disgracing him, aud that he de
sired uothiug bettor thau to resume arms
ia . tho service of lia Jiellc t ranco. He
was liberated but not. restored to the
The next intelligence respecting him
wa's to the effect that, having gone to
London, his conduct .there was rather . of
a ciievcuicr trtndustsie than of a preux
chevalier. The police reports too faith
fully recorded. that a young Frenchman,
who had gone to lodge in a house iu Lon
don, unfortunately had committed a mis
take as to tho rights of property, (some
people never can distinguish between
meum and teum ! ) and being in want
of money, tremendously ' hard up,' had
obtained funds by transferring some of
his landlord's portable property to one
of the accommodating individuals who
hang out three golden balTs the arms
of ancient Lombard and lend nioucy
on goods for what old Trapbois calls ' a
con-si-de-ra-ti-on.' Some legal proof was
requisite, end was not' forthcoming ;
whereupon, the police officer, Rhadaman
thus discharged the frenchman, with a
caution that the eyes of. the authorities
were upon huu.
Tho adventurer returned to Jraris.
His next public appearance is said to
have been at Franconi's where he ' witch
ed the world with noble horseuiaaship.'
It was his good fortune, somo how or
other, to win tho attention of that kind
hearted, amiable man, the late Duc'd
Orleans, who listened to his story, be
lieved him to be the victim of a conspi
racy, solicited and obtained his restora
tion to the army, and liberally provided
him with au outfit, when he was annexed
by the War Department to ono of Ahe
regiments destined to servo in Algeria.
It will be recollected that, iu the time
of Louis Philippe, Afrieawas a sort of
natural safety valve fur carrying olf all
the m-cutvuis sitjuts of the b rencu arury.
And it ia scarcely too much to believe
that the reappointed sub-lieutenant was
Selected for this particular service, not
entirely on aceouut of his good repu

chance : that his future might redeem

by his chivalrous courage. ' Afterwards,
the intellectual qualities of the man came
into operation. It was found that be

mado Military Secretary to the Commander-in-Chief
of the French Alga

superior officers, by deserving it. Years
rolled on, aud ho became elevated in

There came, like a moral avalanche,
tho Revolution of 1848. In- Algeria,
when tho news was made public, there
was a doubt among the trench army, in
the presence of one of Louis Phelippe's
sous, whether to continue support of the
Monarchy, or to adopt the Republic.
The latter was resolved " upon ; tho

Louis Napeleon lionaperte) waa elected
President of the French llepublie.-
The dashing soldier from Algiers, who
had returned to Paris, speedily became
an intimate friend of the nw President,
who promoted bun to the rank of Gee-
eral, and kept him constantly near his
person. The public -wondered at the
strong alliance between the two. A few
attributed it to personal sympathy.
The truth was necessary to the other.
Bonaparte wanted the aid of a bold un
scrupulous soldier, and the other, who
had sufficience to foresee the probable"
success of the President's ambitious, re
solved to raise himself by aiding them.
Accordingly, tho coup cTetat of De
cember 2, 1851, whereby Louis Nape

of the recomendation of his phsiciaus

ou this campaign. His wife young,'

WORK FOR A LIVTKG.
The besr. means of obtaining a living
Is 4.0 toork for it. No tiling so exalts aud
euobles a man as honorable labor, and
he who ia the most efficient worker has
the strongest claim npon the world for a
living;. ; The world, too, will readily ac
knowledge tho claim of all such to the
privileges .and blessiug of life. But let
a man thr;o.w. himself upou the world, re
lying in the- old motto" the world
owes me a living," making no ettort
to help himself, aud you will see how
soon, and wish what practical emphasis,
his demands will be repudiated. The
world otoes What folly. Who consti
tutes this world against whom the de
mand for a living is made by tho idle aud
vicious ? Why, individuals of course.
Supposf, then, each individual should
Isot up tho ",ij.';'..f ftrJ'i nws vni'
a living , auu vnereiorerciusep .0 worjf,
what would be the consequence ? Who
would pay the demand ? What kind of
a living should we liave, and how much
would life, under such circumstauces, be
worth to use ?
The truth is, we owe everything to the
world all our energies, physical, moral
and, intellectual. l4nd unless we devote
these to. tho high purposes of our crea
tion,' in advaucing the general interests
of humanity', we shall prove recreant to
the duties made incumbent npon us from
the very organism of our beiug, and dhall
deservethe contempt and reproach of-all
men. The following sensible remarks
upon the subject, from the Ledger, we
commend to our, readers :
' " Thb Wobld'.Owbs Me a LIvrNG."
One., of the cant phrases of the day, in
vented by lazincssu'd rascality to de
feat its short coinings, ia that which we
have placed at the bead of this article f
for, as it is usually employed, it means
that a man ought to be supported,' wheth
er ho does anything to help himself or
not. IipV ep. absurd ..doctrine needs
only be stated in plain language to refute
itself. The human race .would soon sinK
to the condition of the most degraded
Savages, or actually become exterpated
by starvation, or by d: sea Be brought on
by idleness or scanty food, if every man
vere . to adopt this phrase for his motto.
Society does indeed, owe a living to the
maimed, the aged, the imbecile, or those
who cannot obtain employment, but to
no one else. : W.hoeveran take care of
himself loses" his claim on the world for
assistance. Idleness, ' unthrift, or want
of energy furnish no reason for'.demand
ing alms ; for they are vices which ought
to be;' extirpated, and which properly
carry their own punishment with them.
It ia a law of existence, applying to the
brute creation as well aa to man, that
they who will not work shall starve.
The birda of the air, tho fishes in sea, the
lions in tho wilderness all have, to look
out for their own food; and-would starve,
if they imitated the habits or adopted
the philosophy of some of oar modern
Tho world, however, does owe a living
to every man who works for it ; and what
is. more, he gets it, especially in this
country. No- man need starve, or even
suffer,- except for a temporary period.
There is. always labor of some kind to be
performed, if men will earnestly seek it
and faithfully perform it, ; The great
enemy of persons seeking work, is pride.
They need money for fuel ; their families
may be almost starving, yet they will
not do this or that, because " it is beneath
them." We once knew a young man
who . started, .life with manifold advan
tages, yet wboma.de a misersable failure,
and died early in poverty, because he
would not, after a first disaster, as he
said, " stop " to a subordinate position.
Many a man has reduced his family to
indigence ; shaa left his wife a penniless
widow : or has brought his orphaucd
children to the almshouse, because he
would not go out and seek fortune, or take
fortune in whatever shape she offered
herself. To sit with folded hands and
piteous face, waiting for work t come,
is not the way to deserve one's living.
Bread is not rained from herven,' manna-like.
Those who we would succeed
must strive. . Prosperity is only won by
strenuous exertion ; but eucrgy and per
sevcrauco are sure to command it in the
long run : and he who says, " I will have
work," aud tries and tries again to get it.
is certain at last to obtain it, to keep it,
aud even to attain a competence through
' K3LKSAS ITEMS. '
Wo havo received tho first number of
the Kansas Pioheer, published at Law
rence, Kansas Territory, edited and
publiehed- by?-John Speer, formerly-' of
the Medina, Obio, Gazette, aud Joseph
L. Speer of Cleveland. : It is of bcauti.
ful appearance in paper aud typography t
and has a prevailing tone of firmness
aiid forbearance, "which is' so necessary
for a paper published under its peculiar
auspices:. It is the advocate of educa
tion, progress, and freedom.; and ex
presses the intention of opening its col
umns to a discussion of 'the Kansas
slavery question to both parties. :

'. How do .Pioneers get along f is a
question we have heard asked very fre
quently, when in Ohio. We got along
at from fifteen to thirty ' miles- a . day,
with a carpet-bag-and cautceil on 'our
back, footing it across the prairie , Rath
er a hard way f getting along- so we
found itw We carried the canteen, be

purpose of making . a good -impression

. The first three weeka we werj in the
territory we had the pleasure of sleep
ing ona bed two nights,' but two' only.
One night we had the privilege of sleep
ing on a straw bed made of unmowed
prairie hay, with the broad prairie for a
bed, and the starry canopy for a cover
ing. The next night we had the pleas
ure of shariug a bed. with a fellew Pio
neer, made of tho same material thrngh
out. When we, got to Lawreuce, we
were favored with a Btraw bed minus the

Tho citizens of Lawrence, in leaving
friends aud acquaintances, evir.ee no dis
position to neglect or forget any of their
time-honored, institutions. Last Sab
bath-' they organized a Sabbath School
and Bible Class. As soon as a suitable
building ca. ; be procured, they will have
a Library and Lyceum. There shines
the true New England spirit.
Dr. J. B. Chapman, one of our most
enterprising citizeus, has drawn up and
headed a subscription, paper for a joint

large number of- inechieuiics are here,
many of whom, we opine, are little used
to frontier life, but will make business
go when the materials arc ready for
them to actio their appropriate spheres.

Important Arrest. -While present
at the Ninth street station house, yester
day morning, wo noticed the 4ntrauoe of
Mr. Paul 11. Detains, deputy V. p. Mar

pearance, that there was sqmcthrag ot

days since by Messrs. Marshall and
Kimball; having in 'their possession bo-,
gus and silver coin. Tbeame coin was
paid to them or given iu exchange, for
bills afc Cleveland by one Callahan, who
keeps emigrant boarding house there'
Callahan, it appears, is aotorious deal
er in that kind of hardware and has eva
ded Marshal -Gallagher," of Cleveland,
time and again.,". Through the untiring
vigilance of LI.- S. Marshal Fitch,D epu
ty Marshal Dennis, assisted by officer
Ranny, Callahan has at least been arres
ted. The evidence is said to be strong-
against - him a considerable amount of
bogus gold ; and .silver com being found
upon his premises, said by his wifo to be
lo e to him that he will have to take
the chances of the law. ' Captain Hope,
officers Marshall and P.' H. Dennis, left
here last evening, accompanied, by the
above three men, whose names are Ed
ward . Buckley, Thos. Williams, Chas.
Williams, and Wm. Gorman, for the
purpose of taking them before U. S.
Commissioner John C. Grannis, at Cleve
land, for examination. . We may expect
some developments of an extraordinary
character upon the result of Callahan's
examination and' trial. Cin. Enqui

The Battle of the Alma comparfd
with Battles in Mexico. It - ia Baid
that the Russians at, the Alma number
ed over 50,000 men, with - a powerful
train of artillery, and that the force of
the allies was about the same ; after- au
engagement whioh is classed as desperate
t he Czaa's troops were driven at all points
by the bayonet, the victors losing about
2,500 men. Now, if this statement be
true, the Russians made but a feeble re
sistance the small loss of the allies
proves this. The Mexicans would have
held out more stubbornly." In proof, it
may be stated that at Churubusco they
iutlictcd a loss of one thousand upon the
eight thousand Americans engaged ; and
at the Molino del Rey, where W orth
had but a little over three thousand
troops in all, he lot nearly nine hundred
men in less tha.n an hour. At the same
rates,, the allies under St, Arnaud and
Raglau, in their battle upon the Alma,
should have lost something like fifteen
thousand men, provided they had fifty
thousand engaged. G. W. Kendall.
