her sweet lips hovered a constant smile; she
had conquered her fear of the king of ter.

most exulting joy, "I knew that through

The beautiful consumptive sat alone it

For an instant the pale lips quivered; bs

were " Beware! Bevsre ! oh man, of the F

WEAR YOUR BEARDS, GENTLEMEN.- V
Many seem to entertain a great aversion to jr
the practice, which is now prevailing to a w
large extent, among the gentlemen, of wear. el
ing beards. Some of the ladies, especially a
the young portion, profess to conceive of no al
sight more horrid than that of the heavy J
moustache, the bushy whiskers and flowing b
goatee. An argument inl favor of long li
beards has recently been advanced, however, p
which is likely to prove one of considerable ti
potency. It is now affirmed that long beards ec
most effectually prevent ulcerated sore throat sE
with all who wear them, and the N. Y. Ob.
server says, the officers and crew of the at
North Star, Arctic ship, nowv in Sheerness, a
have suffered the privation of two winters, h
f six months each, total darkness, with the.a
thermometer50 deg. below the freezing point. si
They have been without a single human be- pi
ing to associate with, except their own little ai
company, for a period of two years and a o1
alf. During the whole period the officers 'I
and crew ceased to use a razor, merely scis- ir
sor-cutting and trimming their faces, and
heads-and there has not been one solitary oi
ease or ulcerated or sore throat among them. cl
Until within a week, the razor wvas only c:
known by name in the ship, and strange to al
say, immediately after the faces lost their el
warm clothing several found that the cold n
took effect on their throats. Not a single ta
man or officer has been lost from sickness. h;

THE ROTHSCHILDS AND THEIR WEALTH, j
The following are extracts from a letter I
tely received at the Department of State
om Frankfort sur Maine, dated, the 10th t
"There died in this city, on the 6th in. e
ant, at the age of eighty-two years five c
onths and twenty-four days, Baron Ama- n
iel Mayer von Rothschild, Privy Counsel. t,
r of the Duke of Hesse Darmstadt, Privy t
inance Counsellor of the Elector of Hesse. e
assel, Privy Commercial Counsellor of the 8
ing of Prussia, Consul at Frankfort for c
e Kingdom of Bavaria, Consul General e
r the Duchy of Parma, Commander and
night of several high orders, and chief and
nior of the celebrated banking firm of M.
. Rothschild & Sons, of Frankfort-on-the.
" The decease of Baron Rothschild is still v
e topic of conversation in the city. I dare I
y that, in a long series of years, no event i
is created so great a sonsation and so much Z
tracted the attention of the whole popula. v
)n as the decease of this person. He was h
'ndered popular, not only by his social po- I
Lion and vast wealth, but by his personal d
>pearance and habits. There was scarcely v
man in Frankfort to whom the " Old Roth- P
hild" (as the people called him) was not n
town. Every day, when entering or leav. c
g his banking-house, he was surrounded v
a crowd of the poor. His willingness to h
ye and the good humor with which he dis. n
ibuted his benefits were never disturbed 8
the importunities of these turbulent as. a
"Baron Rothschild was popular with all n
asses, because his benevolence extended to (
distinctions of' political and religious par
" was a rigid observer of all the re. c
irements of his faith, to such a degree that, o
the sumptuous feasts to which he was in- 11
ted or which lie gave at his own residence, t
was never known to touch any meat not 1
epared according to the Jewish mode, and r
ithersickness nor inclemency of the weath- ii
was able to restrain him from the perfor. r
ance of his religious duties and ceremonies. h
e belonged to the orthodox fraction of the tl
wish community, but his benefits extended i
all alike. tj
"I have seen a list of yearly distributions a
ade for the account of Baron Rothschild, t,
Dm which it appears that not less than h
00 Christian families had profited by his h
Dunty. The weekly " distribution" for his Y
count amounted to at least 50,000 florins JI
r year, and probably an equal sum was s
nt.abroad for the relief of the indigent. e
esides these gifts he contributed to all pub. a
institutions of charity, as well as for art, a
erature, and the like. e
" Whilst his liberality towards his fellow h
tizens afforded them a constant relief, his c
vn personal habits were extremely simple. 11
ith such great wealth, favored with the c
iendship and esteem of sovereigns, loaded t
ith honors and distinctions, Baron Roths. a
iild never forgot the origin of so exalted h
position. The humble cottage in the daik a
iI narrow street (called the " street of the p
ws,") in which lie and his brothers were o
)rn, was visited by him daily during the 1I
etime of his mother, who could never be
irsuaded to exchange that humble habita- n

"Baron Rothschild was no less kind and
rectionate towards his family at large. He
as married for more than fifty years, but o
ano children. His wife died in 1848, n
id his affections have beena devoted to his t
sters and brethren and to their numerous s

id outlived them all, with the exception of t

the personal character of Barona Roths- i:

pacity for business, of the skill, persever- '1

DEATI OF ANDREW J. MILLEL..
Profound and universal sorrow pervades
is community, occasioned by the death of
lis much beloved and most valuable citizen,
1ho departed this life on Sunday morning,
d inst., after a short and violent attack of
'neumonia. On his arrival at boime on
unday the 27th ult., from Milledgeville,
fhere he had -been assiduously engaged in
is duties as Senator from Richmond, he was
abording under the incipient stage of the
isease. But with that devotion to duty
hich ever characterized him, he was in his
lace in the Superior Court on Monday
iorning, where professional engagements
ailed him. He was there seized with a se.
ere chill and was compelled to retire to his
ome. There, surrounded by its beloved in
iates, and attended by the best medical
kill of our city, which availed naught to
rrest the march of the fell destroyer, he
reathed his last, soothed by the conscious
ess of a life well spent, and cheered by a
Mr. Miller possessed, in an eminent de.
roe, the confidence and respect of our entire
ommunity, and during a professional career
f thirty years he enjoyed a very large and
icrative practice, and continued, from year
> year, to increase his legal reputation, until
e took position in the State in the very front
ink of his profession. Courteous and kind
i his intercourse with his professional breth.
-n, and remarkably liberal in his practice,
e ever commanded their respect and won
seir warm friendship and regard. He was
ideed to them a brother. In this character
ie writer knew him well and iniimately,
nd as such, appreciated and loved him. It is
us a mournful satisfaction to testify to his
igh merits and noble nature. He practiced
is profession not merely as the astute law.
er, but in the elevating spirit of a votary of
istice, ever mindful of the high moral and
oeial responsibilities of his vocation. In
very quality of mind and heart. he was an
rnament to his profession. So far from
vailing himself of' his position and influ.
nee to foment litigation and strife among
is fellow citizens, hn often arranged, out
f Court, diflicult questions among contend.
ig parties, by compromises in a way to se
ure to each substantial justice. While he
ever sacrificed or neglected the interests of
client, the opposing party, when placed in
is power, found him always a forbearing
ntagonist, and often a substantial and sym.
athizing friend. This was one great secret
f his marked, uninterrupted, and almost un.
mited influence among us.
In political life he enjoyed not only the
ever failing and ever active support of his
arty friends, but such was the confidence
nd admiration of a large number of his fel.
>w-citizens wholdiffered with him in political
uestions, but who valued highly his business

But it is not alone to the legal profession
nd to hosts of clients-it is not alone to
