Tlie Prince and the Actress.
[Fruin^the Court Jourual.J
The announcement of the Imperial
/amilv of Austria of tho marriage Of
Duke Louis of Bavaria with the beautiful
Mlle. Mendel the actress, of Augsburg,
has given a new aim to the theatrical
. ambitio'n^of tim ladies of tho Paris
boards. The visfw made by the Em
press^ElizabetLjto tte beautiful ?castle
of Lake^tahnberg, where the*n#wly-'
married couple, r?sideras" become the
' talk of every /yy .r ti'carlisles in Europe.
They say in lim co tt/i iocs here that Her
Austrian Majesty was the great promo
ter of the marriage, the story connected
with her brother's love ancV'courtship
being romantic enough to e.vite 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 lover*. Mlle. Mendel, who
had preserved her reputation unsullied
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-golden hair in soft
. sjlky masses, without the smallest tinge
of auburn-pure gold-untarnished ;
a complexion delicate as the inner pe
tals of the Bengal rose-pale pink,
scarcely ever seen in nature, and almost
i inpossible to produce by artificial means ;
lips of the deepest carnation ; teeth
small and exquisitely white, and eye
brows of tlve darkest brown, with eyes
of the deepest blue. . All this mad.
.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 of her reputation, and aware of
the responsibility incurred by the pos
session of groat talent, she resisted
(.very overture, even that of marriage,
ou tlie part of the Duke, well knowing
that it was out of his power to contract
any alliance of the kind, 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
namented by a singie pearl of great
value, which had been presonted-to hel
by the King, of Saxony, and in order to
quell all hope of success in thc bosom
of 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
but 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
.-niall cottage belonging to his brother's
?i'jat very night, when about to place
tke velvet band upon her neck, she
foi^c1. to her great surprise, that a sec
ond ?*?arl had been added to the clasp.
She kne-? wen enough i-1- 't came,
and^m^d ^dU^^^ or labor
/yii ure that Duke Louis was in
^c firring ?r love's sake.
By tt9g-.??6s the velvet band became
covered with pearls, all bf them as fine
as tlie ote nestwowed by the King of
Saxony, un^il one evening great was
the rumor in Augsburg. Th 3 fair Men
del had been robbed; while on the
stage, divested of all ornament, in the
prison scene as ''Bettina von Armstedt,"
iier dr' =iug-iooia had been enterefl,
and the yeJyet collar, with its row of
priceless pearls had disappeared from
the toilet-tabie. The event was'so ter
rible, her nerves so shaken, that in spite
?-^--t-he assurance of the chief Police
Magistrate, who happened to be in tlie
theatre at the moment, that lie Avas
.sure to ?find tie thief in a very short
?time, for he hat the clue airead}', poor
Mlle. Mendelr!}vas so overcome with
grief that her memory failed her en
tirely, so that OL returning tb tho stage
not a word could she . remember of h^r
part. The. audience waited for some
finie in astonishment at the silence
;aaibt.uined by tie actress; the actress
ga'/.ed i*" ihfi aud.ence in pi tooti J embar
rassment, until, by a sudden inspiration,
.and almost mechanically induce], she
remembered that she had'th? rehearsal
copy of the play uri the pocket of lier
api'.i n. She drew it forth without hesi
? ii iou, v;;d began to read. from it with
the greatestsc)f-possession imaginable.
At first the au^ecob knew not whether
tc laugh or be angry, brui presently
memory, pathos, forgetfulness of all lui
ker art had returned to Mlle. Mendel,
and in ?the utterance of one of the most
impassioned sentiments of her speech
idie flung the rehearsal copy luto tin?
.orchestra, and went on with her part
without pause or hesitation. The ap
planse of the audience was so tremen
dous that one of the witnesses to the
scene has tobi us that-the great monster

tria appeals to have been much moved
by the story, an.d suggested the nomina

r^^^sDER OMTHE DEAD.
Lord Byron, thc poet, was born in
1788. Hedied in -forty-five years
igo. In 1815 he. was married to Miss.
Milbanke, from whom" he separated for-'
?ver about one year after their mar-?
riage. She died in 18G0-nine years ago.';
Their daughter, and only child, cliedl
several years earlier, but she left chil-*
drei), who are still firing,
Forty-live 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 an important
and interesting secret to d?sol?se : that
the cause oT^esfrangeinent lind separa
tion between Lord and Lady Byron was
un adulterous, incestuous intercourse
between Lord Byron and his own sis
ter ! This fact Mrs. Stowe says was
communicated to her by Ladv Byron
. Two questions arise in the mind of
the reader of this horrible announce
ment : first, Is it true? 'and second,
Cid bono ?-for what- good end is it
made ? . .
There seems to be no good and suffi
cient reason for believing the statement
ot Mrs. Stowe^to be true. We'wiri cred
it her assertion that Lady Byron made
it to hoi-. According to Wr. own ac
count, Lady Byron was very ill at the
lime-so ill that she was expected to
.lie soon. If she was so ill, she proba
bly*was talcing medicines. Was she or
was she not under the 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 this-subject,
even if sane on all others.
By what evidence was the foul charge
of Lady Byron supported ? So far as
we can judge by Mrs. Stowe's article,
not by one tittle. And the .public are
asked to believe this terrible accusation
on tin 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. The 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 be blight
ed and blasted for ever hereafter, by
thc 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 be 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 haw thought of Lady Byron here
tofore, no one hereafter can blame a hus
band for baying a wife who hated him
bitterly enough to invent this story,
about him after he had been de?d 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 incestu
ous husband. To one who asked her
how she could love him, she replied,
.' My dear, there was the angel in him."
A pretty place, we should think, ac
cording to her own story, for an 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-Byro n's sister, we are told, in
her last 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 ss ne, a moral monster.
whose Name Mrs Stowe has benefit
ed we are uuablo to per?oive. Uoiioinr
ly not Lady Byron's ; for sha had her
admirer.-* 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 tau- before, but will hereaf
fc>r bc associated with one QI thc most
outrageous and vilest of all tho prurient
stories ever invented.

Teated without a beard, but that after
