Tbe Prince and tbe Actress.
[Fruin* lue Court JournalJ
The announcement of the' Imperial
^famil^ of Austria of the marriage of
Duke Louis of Bavaria with the beautiful
Mlle. Mendel the actress, of Augsburg,
.has given a new aimto the theatrical
. ambitions of ih^. ladies of tho Paris
boards. The ? visw made by the Em
press JSUzabeth* to the beautiful ?castle
of Lake^tahnoerg, where the-newly
married couple. reside ?Jias become the
? talk of even- rqyetyd'arti-sics in Europe.
They say in the coulisses here that Her
Austrfan Majesty was the great promo
ter of the marriage, the story connected
with her brother's love and^courtship
being romantic enough to excite the
strongest interest in her kind womanly
heart, and making it forgetful of all
distinction of rank where an equal share
of love and delicacy had been displayed
by both the loverw. MU e. Mendel, who
had preserved her rcpitation^nsullied
amid all the perils and temptations-of
a theatrical life, is considered as the
most lovely woman in Germany, her
. beauty being of the true German
type, of the peculiar fairness beheld in
no other cou itry-goldeu hair in soft
silky masses, without the smallest tinge
of auburn-pure gold-unburnished ;
a complexion delicate as the inner pe
tals of the Bengal rose-pale pink,
scarcely ever seen in nature, and almost
impossible toproduce by artificial me'ans;
lips of tbe -deepest .carnation ; teeth
small and exquisitely white, and eye
brows of tljf darkest brown, with eyes
of the deepest blue. . ; All this made
.such an impression on the heart of Duke
Louis that from the moment he first be
held her at the Munich Theatre, he
vowed himself to the worship of this
But Mlle. Mendel was valiant in de
fence pf her reputation, and aware of
the responsibility incurred by the pos
session ol great talent, she resisted
every overture, even that of marriage,
on the part of the Duke, well knowing
that it was out of his power to contract
auy alliance of the land, as much was
expected of him by his family. At that
time Mlle. Mendel was in- the habit of
wearing a velvet collar with a clasp or
ti am? ?tod by a single pearl of great
value, wiiich had been presented-to her
by the King, of Saxony, and in order to
(j nell all hope of success in th c bosom
ol' her royal admirer, she declared to
him one day that she had made a vow
to bestow her heart and hand on him
alone-who could'match this single pearl
with as many others as would form the
whole necklace. The declaration was
made laughingly, for the fair creature
knew well enough the Duke, liv
?ing fully up to his income, which was
bur mediocre for his rank, could never
accomplish this herculean task, and she
laughed more merrily still when she
beheld the disconsolate expression of
his countenance at the announcement
she had made. But soon afterward she
heard that the Duke had sold his horses
and broken up his establishment-gone
to live in the strictest retirement in a
.small cottage belonging to his brother's
at very night, when about to place
tte velvet band upon her neck, she
loi*id, to her areut surprise, that a sec
ond poarl badajeen added to the clasp.
She kn&f? weiq enoagh v-1--- j* came.
^J^&^T^^^' or iabcr
?ure that Duke Louis was in
~if?rn?g fir love's sake.
By deg-ees the velvet band became
covered with pearls, all bf them as fine
as the oie aestwowed by the King of
Saxorfy, until one evening great was
the rumor in Augsburg. The fair Men
del had been robbed; while on the
stage, divested of all ornament, in the
prison scene as " Bettina von Armstedt,"
her dressing-room had been entered,
and the yeiyet collar, with its row of
priceless pearls had disappeared from
the toilet-rabie. The event vms'SQ ter
rible, her nervesiso shaken, that in spite
of the assurance of the chief Police
Magistrate, who happened to be in the
theatre at thc moment, that he was
au?) to lind ti e thief in a very short
?time, for he hat the clue already, poor
ii lie. Mendel'liras so overcome with
grief that her '^memory failed her en
tirely, so that ot returning tr) thc stage
not a word coulai she-remember of lur
part. The. audience waited for some
piuie in astonishment at thc silence
maintained by tte actress ; the actress
gazed u pjjp audience in piteous embar
rassment, until, br a ?miden inspiration,
.and almost niectanioaliy fgdeecj, she
remembered that?he hail" the rehearsal
copy of thc play un the- pocket of her
?tpj?on. She drew it forth without hesi
? itioa, -and began to read . from it with
.the greatest se)f-possession imaginable.
At first the aAfdiei-cp knew not whether
.to laugh or be angry, b,ujL presently
ra ?iupry, pathos, forgetfulness of all lui

and in ?the utterance of one of the most
impassioned sentiments of her speech
. ?he flung the rehearsal copy into the
.orchestra, and went on with her part
Avithout pause or hesitaiion. The ap

THE SLANDER 0*THE DEAD.
Lord Bvron, thc poet, was born in
1788: He'died in 1824-forty-five yeSps
ag?. In 1815 he^?was married to Miss;
j\tylbanke, from whom" he separated for-'"
ever about one year after their maia
riage. Sie died in 18G0-nine years ag<U
Their daughter, and only clrild, died!
several years earlier, but she left chil^
dren, who are still living,
Forty-five years after the death of
Lord Byron, and nine years after the
death of Lady Byron, Mrs. Stowe,? an
American woman, comes forward and
announces that she has au important
and interesting secret to disclose : that
the cause df^strangement and separa
tion between Lord and Lady Byron was
an adulterous, incestuous intercourse
between Lord Byron and his own sis
ter ! This fact Mrs. Stowe says was
communicated to her bv Ladv Byron
. Two questions arise in the mind, of
the reader of this horrible announce
ment: first, Is it true? 'and second,
Cai ?ono ?-for what* good end is it
There seems to be no good and suffi
cient reason for believing the statement
ot Mrs. Stowe'to. be true. WVwirl cred
it her assertion that Lady Byron made
it to her. According to liar, own ac
count, Lady Byron was very ill at the
lime-so ill that she was expected to
die sp?'ni If she was so ill, sue proba
bly* was talcing medicines. Was she or
was she not under tye influence of opi
um, or of some anodyne that affected
her reason ? Or it may be. that under
the effects of disease alone her mind
had given way. She had suffered great
mental anguish about her separation
from her husband, und it is not improb
able that she .was insane on ibis-subject,
even if sane on ?ill others.
By what evidence was the foul charge
of Lady Byron supported ? So taras
we can judge by Mrs. Stowe's article,
not by one tittle. And the .public are
asked* to believe this terrible accusation
on th ? merest hearsay testimony, which
in a court of justice would be inadmis
sible to prove that an accused person
had stolen a penny !
It is not Lord Byron alone whose re
putation is -affected by this dreadful
story. Tho fair fame of his sister-fair,
we believe, until now-and who has
been permitted long to rest peacefully,
in her grave-that, too, is to bc blight
ed and blasted for ever hereafter, by
the stain of an unnatural crime.
It is horrible that a woman of Mrs.
Stowe's standing should bring forward
this most repulsive charge against thos?
whose lips, being sealed in death, can
never answer it, however innocent they
may have been. And the strong pre
sumption, from the laws of human na
ture-so, strong as to bc overcome on
ly by the most irrefragable evidence
is, that they were entirely innocent.
It is altogether probable, that even if
Lady Byron was sane, and if she sus
pected this incredible crime, the suspi
cion was the offspring of a jealous and
morbid disposition. Whatever people
may have thought of Lady Byron here
tofore, no one hereafter can blame a hus
band for Icaying a .wife who hated him
bitterly enough to invent this story
about him after he had been dead a
third of a century. It seems, however,
according to Mrs. Stowe, that the sepa
ration was entirely the work of Lord
Byron, and that his divine and lovely
wife was very'anxious to continue to
live with her adulterous and iucesjju
ous husband. To one who asked her
how she could Joye him, she replied,
.' My dear, there was the angel in him."
A pretty place, we should think, ac
cording to her own story, for ari angel
to dwell ! Then, too, Lady Byron al
ways expressed the most undoubting
confidence, after his death, that this
same adulterous and incestuous fiend
had gone straight to heaven !
Lord*Byron's sister, we are told, in
her List sickness and dying hours, look
ed to Lady Byron for consolation and
help. 'The woman who, under these
circumstances, could deliberately fasten
this vile " blot on her memory many
years after her death, must have been,
if #1110, a moral monster.
Whos? name Stowe has benefit
ed we are unable to perceive. Certain?
ly not Lady Byron's; for she had her
admirers before, and can have few left
now. Not the names of the innocent
grand children, who must suffer cruel
torture from this scandal. Not her own,
.which was lair before, but will hereaf
ter bo associated with one o; tho most
outrageous and vilest of all the prurient
stories ever invented.

from the fruit of the forbidden tree a
