How Cashmeres Became t&c FaLla.
SINGULAR TIIEFTS BY MEMBERS OF
In Miss Muehlbach's last book, "The
Empress Josephine," there iz a vivid
nal machine in Paris, which vrould have
certainly killed the wife of Napobon,
had she not been detained for ecuic
moments ia order to readjust h&T Tor-
sian shawl. This wts a present from
Bonaparte, and had hitherto been ra

Rut after it had saved her life, she
ne longer thought it unsightly, Ehe
was fond of wrapping herself up in it,
and the natural consequence was that
these Persian 6hawls Eoon formed the
most fash:jnablo and costly article of
Lvery lady of tne higher classes
considered it a necessity to cover her
tender shoulders with this valuable fo
reign material, and it soon became a
commc it faut, a duty of position, to
possess a collection of such Persian
shawls, and to wear them ttt the bails
and receptions in the iunlenc3.
A he desire to possess such a precious
article of fashion, led these ladies of
tentimes to "corriqer la fortune," and
to obtain by some bold but not very
creditable act, the possession oi such
a shawl, which had now become in a
certain measure the escutcheon 01 tiie
new French aristocracy.
The Duchess d'ALrr.ntcs. in refer
ence to this matter, relates two thefls
which at that time troubled the aristo
cratic society of the Tuilleries, which
prove that the ladies had taken i:i
struciions from the gentlemen, and
that dishonest persons of both sexes
were admitted into the society of he
roes aud their beautiful wives I
THEFT Iv'O. 1.
At a morning reception in the Tuil
leries, the shawl of the Countess de St.
Martin had been slolcu, aud this lady
hod been very much distressed at 'the
loss, for this cashmere was not only a
present from MaJauie Murat, but was
one of uncommon beauty on r.ccouut
of the rarity oi' groups, instead of the
ordinary palm. The countess was there
fore untiring iu recounting to every
ono her irreparable loss, and uttered
bitter curses against the bold fem
ale who had stolen her tre.-.sure.
"A few weeks later," related the du
chess, "at a 1) ill given by the minister
Taileyrand. the countess came toward
me with a bright countenance and told
me that she had just uow found her
shawl, aud strange to say, upon the
shoulders of a young lady at the ball."
"Rut," said 1 to her, "3-ou will not
accuse this lady before the whole com
"And why not ?"
"Because that would be wrong.
Leave this matter to me."
"She would not at first, but I press- j
ed the subject on her consideration,
and she agreed at length to remain
somewhat behind, while I approached
the vounsr lady, who stood near the
door, and was just going to leave tho
ball-room. I told her in a low voice
that in all probability she had made a
mistake; that she had mislaid her own
cashmere, and had through carelessness
taken the shawl of the Countess de
I was as polite as I could possibly be
in such a communication; but the young
lady looked at me unpleasautly for
such an impertinent intrusion, and re
plied that "since tho time the Countess
de St. Martin had deafened the cars
of every one with the story of her stj
leu shawl, she had ample leisure to re
cognize as her property the cashmere
she wore." Her mother, who stood a
few steps from her, and was conversing
with another lady, turned towards .her
when she heard her daughter speak in
so loud a voice. But the Countess de
St. Marti.i who overheard that she had
'deafened the eats of every one wuh
the story of her stolen shawl,' rushed
to the rescue of her case.
"This cashmere belongs to me," said
ho, heartily seizing, at the same time
the shawl with one hand, while the
her fist thrust her
back violently. I saw that ia a momeirt-Kteal.

"It will be easy to end this ciflicul

shawl which is so much like yours, and
then you will see your mistake and be
"It does not suit me to tell where I
got this shawl," replied the lady, look

no necessity for me telling you where
I purchased it."
"Well, then,''" esclaimed eagerly tho
Countess de St. Martin, "you confess,
madame, that the shawl belongs to
The other answered with a sarcastic
smile, and drew the shawl closer to her
shoulder. A few persons, attracted by
the strangeness of the scene, had gath
ered around us and seemed to wait for
the end of so extraordinary an event.
The countess continued with a loud

The New York Herald says :
"There is danger ia it (impeachment)
to the Republican party which its
thoughtful and cool headed men will,
if possible, avoid; for if Andrew John
son's impeachment and removal be
made a party test, the result will be a
disruption of the party. We have
had this result foreshadowed in all
these late elections ; for this thing of
impeachment, we repeat, was among
the dead weights thereof which the
Republican party had to carry."
From the New York Times' article
we take the following extracts:
"The allegations which Mr. Bout
well, as the mouth piece of the majori
ty, relics to justify the measure and
insure its success, are merely a rehash
of charges aguiu and again preferred

tion controversy, and always for politi

sins of omission and commission in
connection with these positions. Such
are the leading counts in the indict
ment presented by Mr. Boutwell,
anu a sorry exinoit tney lorm as a
ground work of impeachment. If the
partisan ingenuity ean discover no off
ence more tangible than those here
imputed, we may be quite sure that
Mr. Johnson has but little to fear from
the recommendation which has been

tee is wholly unwarranted by the testi
mony. Tie report submitted by 3!r.
Boutwell does not refer to a particle of
testimony which biings the case up to
the gravity of Impeachment, and no
mau of sense certainly no sensible
lawyer would, unless blinded by pas
sion and prejudice, have thus exposed
himself to the world's condemnation.
The whole question, instead of being
rushed through, as was expected, goes
over till Wednesday cf next week.
By that time the people everywhere
will have become weary of it, and Con
gress will be called upon to forego
thh' fooling, aud set themselves to
work in reforming abuses, retrenching
expenses, and providing ways and
means to pay the public debt."
The New York Sun says
"It. is kt'.own that a nrrY rl-
not a majority 01 tiic iiepuiiiican mem
bers of the Ilotue, are opposed to car
ry cut this scheme, and the probability
is that i: will be defeated when the
question comes to a vote. But evcu if
the House should endorse the action
of their committee, it is almost certain
that the Senate would acquit the Pres
ident when the case should come up
for trial in that body. The Fresident
has done some unwise, come objection
able, and some foolish things ia the
course of his adraiuistratiou ; but that
he has dene anything to warrant his
removal is not believed by any thought
ful aud impartial person."
The New York Fast says :
As to the substauceof the reports, we
shall have something to say hereafter;
but at present it does not seem to us that
a very strong case has been made out by
the majority. They may convict the
President of enormous errors of judg
ment, of precipitate and careless actioD,
ol tho assumption of questionable pow
ers, and of other highe" improper mis
conduct; but for some of his doings
he may plead, according to General
Grant and Secretary Stanton's testi
mony, the initiatory example of Presi
dent Lincoln, which was uevov formal
ly disapproved; and for much of the
rest that it was rather a political than
a legal offence. For the committee,
however, to carry their case, and parti
cularly to get the, sanction of the pub
lic, it is necessary to show that the
malfeasances imputed to the President
are not bad opinions only, not misjudg
msots, not a determination to resist
the action of Congress, which he migtit
deem unconstitutional to the extremity
of his powers, but positive acts, consti
tuting "high crimes and misdemean
ors, " which aro legal terms, implying
a wilful disregard of a known public
law, by the omission or commission of
some deed which it enjoins or iorbids.

so, who has followed a beloved cue to 1
tho grave? While he was sick we went
in and out anxious, sorrowing, suffer
ing. The solicitude to . relieve, and
care for, and comfort him, engrossed
us; the apprehension of our own desol
ation, in case he should be removed .
from us, almost drove us wild.
While he lay dead under the home
roof, there was a hurry and bustle in
preparation fur the final rites. Friends
are sent for, neighbors are present, the
funeral arrangements are discussed, the
liiOurnwig procured, the hospitalith.3
of the house provided for; all is cr cite- ;
ment; the loss is not yet perceived in
all its great uess.
But "after the funeral," after tho
bustle has subsided aud things begin
to move on as usual, then it is wc be-
gin to know what has befallen us. The
house seems still and sepulchral though
in the heart of the city; and though
its threshold be trodden by friendly
feet, it is as if empty. The apartments,
how deserted! especially the room
where he struggled and surrcudcrsd ia
tho last conflict. There are his clo
thes, there are his books, there his hat
and cane, there his ever vacant cent
at the family board. During his sick
ness we had not so much uoticed these
things, for we hoped ever that he
might use cr occupy them again. But
now we know it can never be, and we
perceive the dreadful vacuity every
where. Ou how dark and cheerless the
night shadows come down after tho
funeral. No moon or stars ever shone
so dimlj; no darkness ever seemed so
utterly dark. The tickings of tho
clock resound like bell strokes all over
the house. No foot step now oatbo
stairs or ovei head ia the sick cham
ber; no nurse or watchers to come and
say, "he is not so well and asks for
you, xSo indeed; you may "sleep ou
now aud take j'our rest," if you can.
