Charles the Eleventh's Extraor
Cham.es XL, father of tho celebrated
Clmrlcs XII., was ono of tho wisest
kings who sat on tho throno of Swe
den. Ho put n check on tho many
privileges usurped by tho nobles, dim
inished tho power of tho seimto, tin l
promulgated on his own authority
soverul important Iuwb; in n word, ho
nltcrcd tho form of government, which
until now had been oligarchical, and
forced tho State to acknowledge him
us absolute ruler. Tho Luthoian reli
gion found in this monarch a sinccro
adherent. Ho was bravo and onlitrli-
teucd, but cold and precise in charac
ter, holding tho imaginntivo powers
under constant check and control.
The death of his wifo, Ulrica Eleanor,
whom ho treated harshly during her
lifetime, made, however, a greater im-
pressiou than could nave been sup
posed on so rough and demonstrative
1 a nature.
I Becoming more .and moro morose
I after this event, Charles XI. gave hiui
I self up wholly to tho mauagomont and
affairs of his kingdom, thus betraying
a mind ill ut case, which sought dis
traction from its depressing thoughts
in tho toil aud cares of government.
Ono autumn availing lie sat, in Com
pany with Count Bluho nud Dr. Buum
gurten, opposite a bright file, his head
resting on his breast and his eyes fixed
on the grate, in profound silence.
Tho Count Brabe, finding thnt his
presence was unheeded by tho King,
tried to make some excuse for with-
drawing from tho apartment, and sug-
gested that his Majesty stood in nwd
of repose; but a sign from the latter
held Wto his seat. The doctor iu

King then rophed, in a suppressed
tono, "I lmvo no wish to sleep at pres

jects of conversation, but after a sen
teuco or two their efforts fell to tho
ground. His Majesty wns passing
through a phuso of profound melan
choly, which rendered tho position of
tho two courtiers somewhat delicate.
Ono of them, looking toward the por
trait of tho late Queen, said, with a
deep sigh: "How striking is tho re
semblance ! what a sweet and dignified
oxprossion." Tho King, who seemed
to consider every allusion to tho Queen
as a personal reproach, replied that
tho urtist had flatterod her, and using

There is now living in this
family, the history of which
something so romantic ns to
tuto a most interesting story:
In the summer of 1859, Charles Go
roux becaino a graduato of a college
in tho southern part of this Stato.
Ho was tho descendant of an aristo
cratic family who lived in Louisiana,
and to bo brief, he was thou a lull em

of a considorablo
proporty, which was held in trust by
her uncle, a Southern minister, who
had raised her from infancy, and per
sonally superintended hor education.
In addition to tho endowments of a
collcgiato education sho was possessed
of a strong character, bordering on
tho masculine, but tempered with a
sweotnoss and mildness not often com
bined in tho same person. Sho was
at once handsome and womanly.

ricn, warm sou, similar to that ro
quired by Indian corn. It is not
considered a very strong exhauster,
and is gonerally regarded as a Buro
crop, being but little liable to injuries
from the cut worm or any other insec
tivorous depredator. It is generally
cultivated in drills, tho manuring being

a very profitable crop. It is said to
leave the soil in excellent order.

wrought on round plump cushions,
