Many years ngo a lawyer in the
Quaker City, poor aud unknown to fame,
fell in love with a beautiful young lady
of Baltimore, and his lovo being recipro
cated, nn engagement ensued.
The mother of the young lady, how
ever, did not, view the engagement with
satisfaction or pleasure. Indeed, she
herrtily disapproved of it, for-tho young
lawyer wns altogether to0? pool* and
obscure to marry into ono of the wealth
iest and most aristocratic of Baltimore
families. This, at least, was the opin
ion of tbc yourig girl's mother, who,
being very ambitious and correspond
ingly proud, desired that licr daughter
should Wdd some person* prominent
either in this or some othor oonntry.
She brought all her influence to boar
upon the girl, and did all she possibly
could to induce hor to give up bcr
lover, but failing she resorted?as
mothers havo d?ne"befora?to'deception
and other contemptible means to break
off the engagement. Letters were inter
cepted, had writing imitated, servants
bribed and falsehoods circulated pro-"
miscuously. Tho natural and inevi
table result was that a misunderstand
ing arose between the betrothed for
which neither in reality was responsible.
One day tho lawyor received n note
written in the handwriting of his fiance,
accompanied by a packet ofblotters! and
a box of trinkets. Tho'note stated that
; the writer bad, upon careful consider
ation and thought,*decided that she did
not love him as a woman about to bo
his wifo should, and for this and other
reasons bogged to be released from hor
engagement. i<< >xii
The bfow was a hard one, and for a
long time tho lawyer folt the offocts
acutely. Under tho impression that ho
had been jilted because ho Was poor'and
unknown, he determined to boeomn rieh
and famous, and forthwith commenced
his "noble lifo." How well he sueossded
the nation knows, for in 184?he was
made Secretary of State, Minister to
England, and n few years latter was
elected President of the United States.
Meanwhile his first love married a
very rich merchant of Philadelphia,
much agninst ber own will and only at
tho earnoet and repeated solicitations''Of
her mother.' Tho* marriage wns not a
I happy Wo; for ' thi wife neither loired
'nor respected hor husband. Her cup
of bitterness was full when she heard of
the election of her lover as President,
and her mother's cup was quite ovo r
flowing. Ahe plunged into Sooial dis

sorrows. For two or three Be arons she

Miss JennieV Johnston had becK'HM

Her father and sistor oame on during
the summer sbason and the vacation of

Miss Johnston remained at the hotel
with them during their stay, and when

Nothing was thought of it at. the time,
nor wcro there any suspicions at the
Seminary that any occurrence of the
kind had taken place, until recently,
when Miss Johnston, confiding in oue
of her schoolmates, staled that sho was
married, and the circumstances of it.
This coming to tho attention of the
school authorities, the matter was
quietly investigated, and Mis Johnston's

that tho young man had at one time
p: id attention to his daughter, but that
after she bad been entered as n pupil at
tho school, ha had thought no more of
it, not knowing, indeed, that Mr. Mr.
Wilcox had boon out of New Orleans.

Wilcox chose a very opportune timo

A DIAMOND SHOW.
Mrs. Astor, the wife of the hundred
millionaire of Now York, appeared at a
pnrty which she gavo at her Fifth avon
uo residence ouc evening last week, in
a style that would justify any reporter
in saying that she "literally blazed all
over with diamonds." On each of hor
(shoulders she had four stars, tho si/.o of
silrer Half dollars, made of diamonds.
Her hair was set very thickly with dia
monds, and hor head .scorned aflumo with
them. There was a diamond baudau
upon her brow. She had diamond
car-rings, and a diamond necklace of
magnificent proportions. Upon the two
sides of her client were two circles of
diamonds about the size of the palm of
the hand. From them deepened lines
and curves of diamonds reached to her
waist, round which she wore a diamond
?girdle. On the skirts of her dress in
front wero two large peacocks, wrought
of lines of diamonds.
There were rosettes of diamonds on
her slippers. Thcro were diamonds,
large ur small, in every variety of form ,
all over her dress and person, whereover
they could be artistically plucod. She
presented an extraordinary and dazzling
spectacle, as she moved languidly
through the dance, among her friends '
One of the ladies present, a connoisseur
in precious stones, win kept c >ol etiou-jh
to take practical observation, says the
diamonds she wore could not have cost
less than a million dollars, and must
have represented her husband's income
for at least a quarter of a year. This
same lady, who is familiar with court
life iu Europe, Hays that the largost eil
lcctiou of diamonds iu the possession of
any European Empress or Qu*.en, be

but, she adds, even Augui>ta herself
could not, make a diummd t>h<>w which
would begin to compare with th.it made
by Mrs. Astor on Thursday evening of
last week. In these hard times tho As
tors are occasionally liberal in their bone
facti >ns. For instance, there w.is a ban
quet lor twenty-lour given at tho Astor
mansion thc.Otlvjr day, and in front of
each lady's plate thcro was a gift for
her f.f a costly ftunfumniern, oquisit'dy
