Englishmen generally express their
wonder at thc freedom from restraint
permitted to young ladies in this country,
and deprecate its influence on the young
ladies themselves and cn the family ?lrch?.
Tbc following paragraphs from the Boston
ileview show the difference in this respect
between the English, and Ameran fami
lt is a marked feature of social life in
England,, and certainly one of its espe
cial chinns, ?hat mothers and daughters
?re so uniformly seen together at their
own home. Not only is the mother Hie
firs*; lady to whom you are in'vod^cd at
thc house where you visit, but mistress
of th? ceremonies throughout; not only
docs she preside at tho dinner-table, bu1
in the evening party she sits as queen.
Whatever nny be your first impressions
of such an arrangement, if it happen?
that your sympathies are with the younger
ladies, you will very soon come to thin!
that the moil er's absence would bc sin.
ccrely regretted by thc daughter?. As
picture, all must admit the arrangement
to be perfect; The portly form and mat
ro dy dignity of the mother are an ex
quisite foil to the youthful beauty and
maiden co; ness of the daughters. And
you will find nothing to mar, but ever,
thing to enhance thc interest of the. pie
ture. The mother's presence never seems
to operate as an unwelcome restraint.
Between her and the daughters you will
not fail to mark the most joyous, playful,
loving freedom, without the sacrifice of a
tittle of parental dignity and authorit)
on the one l*md, or of sweet and graceful
flli'ilduty on the other. It may be said
bf English familes generally that these
tivc things tire eminently characteristic,
to wit, uniform parental authority, and
the most charming freedom of intercourse
between parents and their children. 3
You cannot visit an English family in
a familiar way without discovering. whai
will possibly surprise you, that a deep
dislike of ceremony and state is a malic
ed characteristic of an English woman.
This feeling is strongest with those highes!
in rank, and has been a marked feature
in the character of the Queen herself
from her very girlhood. Now that sin
is a lone widow so prematurely, and her
child'en are growing to the stature ol
manhood and womanhood, and leaving
their home forever, how delightful to re
call the sweet piotwres of her early mar
ried life, when she so much .loved to
saunter, with her noble and good husband,
over the beach near their beautiful house
in the Isle of Wight, and to watch those
tien little children as they amused the rn
salves with trying to .find two little peb
bles of the same shape, or dug wells in
the sand with their tiny wooden spade-.
Was .-he not a great deal happier ami.
those sweet, domestic scent's than when
surrounded hy glittering nobility on grand
Truth Stranger than Fiction.
The p*st history of the families of
Louis'Napolcon and the Sultan of Tur
key is full of interesting and marvellous
incidents, some of which are probably
not generally known to our readers:
These two monarchs, a few years ago,
so cordially united in the struggle u>
maintain thc integrity of the Ottoman
Empire, arc both descendants of Ameri
can ladies; the one a grandson, ihe othei
a great grandson. 'These ladies were
born in the same neighborhood, on the
Island of Martinique, one of thc West
Indies. They were of French origin, and
companions a:;d Ultimate friends in their
childhood and youth. They were Jo
sephine de Tai cher and a Miss S-.
The history of Josephine is generally
known. She wcut to France, and was
married to M. de Beauharnais, by whom
she had a Eon, Eug?ne, and a daughter,
Hortense. Some time after the death cf
Beauharnais, Josephine was married to
Napoleon Bonaparte, and became. Em
press of France. Her daughter, Hor
tense, was married to Louis Bonaparte,
then King of Holland ; and the present
Empferor of France is her son by this
Dut now for the romance of the affair.
Josephine's bosom friend quitted the Is
land of Martinique sometime before she
did. But the vessel that was carrying
her to France was attacked and taken by
Algerinc corsairs, and the crew and pas
sengers made prisoners, but the corsair
ship was, in turn, attacked and pillaged
by Tunis pirates, and Mis3 S., was car
ried by them to Constantinople, and of
fered for sale as a slave. Her extraordi
nary beauty and accomplishments found
her a purchaser in thc Sultan himself, and
she soon became the chief lady in his
seraglio, and Sultaness of Turkey. Mah
moud Ii. was her son ; Abdul Mcdjid wad
the son of Mahmoud ; and the present
Sultan, Abdul Aziz Khan is the grandson
of Mahmoud. * '
Thus the two sovereigns who now oc
cupy so large a spaco in the world's eye
arc descended from two American creole
girls, who were piaymtaes in their youth,
and as remarkable for their beautv and
excellent dispositions as for their varied
and singular fortunes. Both these wo
men, tn the height of their power, re
membered the- friends- of theil* youth,
and provided munificently for their wel
fare. Many of the relative., of the Sul
taness left the Island of Martinique and
settled at' Constantinople, wiierc their de
scendants still resnde, and enjoy tho favor'
of the^ Sultan.
The Sultaness died in 1811 ; the Em
press Joseghjpe jp, 18^4; jjg ;
