A BOLD BANK BURGLABT.
Several Hanitred Thousand Dollars
Captured-The Bank Offers Ten Thou?
sand Dollars Reward.
BALTIMORE, August 19.
ThtyTnird National Bank, in South street,
between Second and Lsmbard, was entered
by burglars last night and robbed, lt. is
thought, of one hundred thousand dollars.
Entrance was effected by cutting through the
wall of the adjoining building, which wai oc?
cupied by a man giving the name of Stabler,
who professed to be a commission merchant.
BALTIMORE, August 19-10 P. M.
The officers ot the bank state that their
loss by the burglary is as follows: Fifty-seven
thousand greenbacks and National Bank
notes, of which there are eight notes of one
hundred dollars each, and twenty-four notes
of Atty dollars each of the Third National
Bink, and the following bonds held as col?
lateral: Northern Central Rill road, twenty-five
thousand dollar-., North Carolina State bonds,
eleven thousand five hundred dollars; Mariet?
ta and Cincinnati Railroad, one thousand dol?
lars; United States five twenties, one thousand
Ave hundred dollars; Western Maryland Rail?
road, two thousand dollars. The bank oilers
a reward of ten thousand dollars for the re?
covery o? the above, and in proportion tor a
partial recovery. The individual losses ol de?
positors having boxes in the vault cannot be
ascertained, as many are ont of town. The
loss will probably amount to several hundred
thousand dollars, as it 1B known that several
boxes containing bonds and other securities
will amount to seventy-five thousand dollars.
The first floor next to the bank building
from which an entrance was made Into the
bank vault, was rented on Jone first by a man
giving the name of E. Washburne, who paid a
quarter's rent, six hundred and twenty-five
dollars, in advance.
THE RANKRUPT LAW.
Extent of the Relief to Debtors.
Mr. dawson, one ot the registrars in bank?
ruptcy for this State, gives the following
points in regard to the bankrupt act :
As doubts have been expressed as to the ex?
tent of the relief afforded by the bankrupt act
ol 1867, and the several amendments thereto.
I deem lt proper to make the following state?
The amendment to the act. approved 10th
June, 1872, allows to the bankrupt all the
prorcriy exempted by tho laws of each State
of force In 1871. m addition to the five hun?
dred dollars' worth of property allowed under
the original act.
ThiB gives to each bankrupt in this State
two thousand dollars' worth of property, to
wit: One thousand dolla rd' worth ol real es?
tate and one thousand dollars' wort a o? per?
sonal estate. Alter the bankrupt has been
discharged, this property becomes his absolute
estate to dispose ot as he chooses, either by
sale, gift, devise cr otherwise.
It Is not necessary, a-t has been supposed,
that the estate of tne person applying shall
pay fllty per cent, ol all his debts; but It the
estate which comes to the hands of tr.e as?
signee ls sufficient to pay filly uer cent, of his
individual debts, contracted ginee 1st Janua?

lora that time, be ls entitled io a full dis?
charge from all his debts. If it ls not suffi?
cient, still be ls discharged from all individual
debts contracted before that lime, and from
all bis security debts, whether contracted be?

WHAT GRANT KNOWS ABOUT
Return of the President-Confidence in
his Re-IClectlon-He Counts upon De?
mocratic Disaffection-The Contest In
Maine-Greeley's Strength In Penn?
[From the Baltimore Soo.]
WASHINGTON, August 15.
Tbe President reached Washington this mor?
ning. To those who called on tne President
and broached the political situation he was, as
usual, somewhat reticent, but nevertheless
took occasion to express bis entire confidence
in his re-election in November, and declared
that be was assured of enough Democratic dis?
affection to insure that result. In other
words, he Beemed to continue to be impressed
with the idea he has held since the commence?
ment of the campaign, that all the loss he wilt
sustain from Greeley Republicana will be made
up by voles lor him, or the refusal ol Demo?
crats to vote for Greeley, from a disaffected
element of that party. While the Presi?
dent did not so state,' those near him
declared that he had sufficient evidence
in his possession to warrant that conclusion.
This assurance, such as it is, bas been proba?
bly derived from responses to thH Blanton
Duncan circular sent out by the Republican
committee In session at the Capitol. The
State of New York ls even claimed by the Presi?
dent. His confidence, howevf r, Is not shared
by mea In the Republican party, who. lt must
be admitted, are equally as good politicians.
Even to dav a lei ter was received from a
prominent 'Maine Republican appealing for
every Maine clerk to go home and vote In
September, on the ground that the result in
that State was doubtful, and that especially
the re-election of Mr. Blaine, in the third dis?
trict, for Congress, looked very blue. Ic was
added that every Maiue Republican vote In
Washington waa needed for this reason, If for
no other, that lt would never do to have the
speaker of the House defeated at the Septem?
ber election. An official ot tbe government
and a supporter of Grant, who returned here
to-day from a trip through northwestern
Pennsylvania, also expresses his surprise at
the strength of Greeley in that section, and
does not oelieve tbat Grant can possibly carry
Pennsylvania. He has no doubt ot ex-Senator
Buckaiew's election in October by a bande?me

BEECHER ON PREACHING.
SCENES FROM HIS CLERICAL LIFE.
His First Revival-His Entry Into the
Ministry-How lo Manage a New Con.
gregatlon-Hating as considered by
One ot the moat readable books ol to-day
for those who are ministers and those who are
not is the publication entitled "Tale Lectures
on Preachiog," by Rev. Henry Ward Beecher.
There ls something so very fresh about lt-so
complete an uncovering ol the heart of the
writer-that it is charming. We give some
interesting extracts from it :
THE FIRST REAL SERMON.
"I remember the first sermon I ever
nreached. I had preached a good many ser?
mons beiore, too. But I remember th? llrst
real one. I hud preached a good while as I
had used my gua. I used lo go out hunt mir
by myself, and I had great success In firing off
my gun, and the game enjoyed it os muon as
I did; fori never hit them or hurt them. I
fired off my gun as I see hundreds of men
tiring off their sermons. I loaded it, and
bang !-there was a smoke, a report, but no?
thing iel:; and so it was again aud aguln. I
recollect one day in the fields my father point?
ed out a little red squirrel and said to me,
'Henry, would you like to shoot him?' I trem?
bled ail over, but I said, 'Yes.' He got down
on his knee, put the guu across a rail, and
Bald, 'Henry, keep perlectly cool, perfectly
cool; take aim.' And I did, and I fired, and
over went the squirrel, and he didn't run
away either. That was the first thing I ever
hit; and I felt an inch taller, as a boy that had
killed a squirrel and knew how to aim a gun."
THE FIRST REVIVAL.
Here ls bis description ol his first revival :
"I recollect when I returned from the first
revival in which I ever worked. Thad been
at Indianapolis between one and two years,
and there had been no revival (and I had
never been In one since I was a boy.) I went
ont on Brother Jewell's call, from Indianapo?
lis lo Terre Hame; and I worked there three
weeks in a revival until my heart was on fire,
and lt rained a stream of prayer all Ihe way
home from Terre Haute to Indianapolis. It
was like an aurora borealis, I have no doubt,
ray upon ray, for that whole distance, If an
angel could have seen it. It was in that feel?
ing all the way, 'Lord slay me If thou wilt;
but I will be Blain, or will have Hie and sal?
vation among my people.' On Sunday I
gave notice that I would preach every night
ihat week. We bad a dingy ieclure-room lu
my church that would hold about two
hundred people. I preached Monday night,
and we had a storm; Tuesday night lt rained
again, and when I called upon any who
were awakened to remain, no one stayed;
andi said, -lt makes no difference; If thc
Lord wishes it to be so, I do !' Oo
Wednesday night I preached again with more
power, and called for Inquiries at ihu close;
one poor Hi tie thin servant girl stopped. She
smelt of ihe kitchen and looked kitchen all
over. When I dismissed the congregation my
first feeling I know as I went towards her
was one of disappointment. I Bald u? m y sell
that after BO much work lt was too bad. Ir.
was Just a glance, an arrow which the devil
shot at me, but which weut past. The nexi
minute I had au overwhelming revulsion In
my soul; and I said lo myself, 'If God pleases,
I will work for the poorest of his creatures. I
will work lor the heart of a vagabond If I am
permuted io do lt, and bring him io Christ
Jesus.' I felt it ; and I thanked God that night
for that girl's staying. He paid me the next,
night, for two ol'my sweetest children, not my
own, bul they were like mine own to me
stopped on the next night, and after thai ihe
work vent on."
THE ASSOCIATES A MINISTER SHOULD HA Vt.
Mr. Beecher's want of personal reserve
naturally prevents him from being very select
In the choice ol his company. He is a wide
liker in the realm of humaoily. No fastidious
scruples disable bim from taking pleasure In
the society of the hard-fisted working?
man as well as in that of the cultivated
scholar or the refined Intellectual woman.
"I take great delight," he tells us, "If ever
I can get a chance, In riding on the top ol au
omnibus with the driver, and talking with
him. What do I gain by mal ? Why, my sym?
pathy goes out for ihese men, and I recognize
In inen an element of brotherhood-thar,
great human element which Hos underneath
all culture, which ls more universal and mom
I m por lani than all special ali ri bu les, which ls
Ihe great generic bond of nu mani ty between
man aud man. If ever I saw one of those
men In my church I could preach io him and
hit him under the tilth rib with an Illustration
much belter lhan if I had not been acquainted
with him. I have driven tho tm Hi nuder
many a plain jacket. But, what is more, I
never lound a plain man ia mis world who
could nor. tell me many things that I did not
know beforp. There is not a gate-keeper at
the Fulton Ferry, or an engineer or deck?
hand on the boats that I am nut ucqualuted
with, and tney help me in more ways than
they know of. Il yon are going to be a minu?
ter keep very close to plain folk; don't get
above the common people."
AM CS INU ACCOUNT OF HIS FIRST CK A RU K - A
Mr. Beecher's carly breaking In lor the min?
istry, In an obscure purlsh In ihe West, ls re?
lated with delicious egotism.
"it was my lot at first to be placed in a vil?
lage with a mere handful of Inhabitant-) lu one
od the Western Stales. I conceive il io be one
of the kindnesses ot Providence that I was Bent
to so small a place. I had but one male mem?
ber In the church, and I wished bim out all ihe
time I was lhere.
"I practiced public speaking from the time
of my sophomore year in college. I was ad?
dicted to going out and making temperance
speeches ana holding conference meeting.*, BO
that I acquired considerable confidence, Oeing
naturally very diffident. When I went lu tho
seminary I still kept up that habit, practicing
whenever I had the opportunity. At the end
ot my three years' semluary course-six m OG I hs
ol which, however, were diverted to editorial
work, a loss of time io my Kindles wbich was
afterward made up-I went to a small town tu
Indiana, the last one in the State toward Cin?
cinnati, ou the Ohio River. It had perhaps
live or six hundred inhabitants, lt had In ll a
Methodist, a Baptist, and this Presbyterian
Church to which I went. The church would
hold perhaps from two hundred and fifty to
three hundred people. It had no lamps anti
no hymn-books. Ii had nineteen femule mem?
bers, and the whole congregation could hardly
raise irom two hundred io two hundred and
fitly dollars as salary. I look that field and
went io work In it.
"Among th.i earliest things I did was to beg
money Irom Cincinnati to buy side-lamps io
hang up in the church, so that we could have
night service. After being there a month or
two, I went lo Cincinnaii again, and collected
money enough to buy hymn-books. 1 dis?
tributed them lu the seals. Before this, Ute
hymns had been lined out. I recollect one of
Ihe first strokes ol management I ever at?
tempted in that parish was tn regard to Hies**
hymn-books. Instead ol'asking the people if
they were willing lo have them, I just put the
books into the pews; tor there are ten men
that will fight a change about which thev ure
consulted io one thal will fight it when lt has
taken place. I simply made the change fur
them. There was a little looking up and look?
ing around, but nothing was said. So after
that we sang out of books. Then there was
nobody in the church to light the lamps, and
they could not afford to get a sexton. Such a
thing was unknown in the primitive simplicity
of that Hoosier time. Well, I unanimously
elected myself to be the sexton. I swept
out the church, trimmed the lamps and
lighted Ihem. I was, literally, the light
of that church. I didn't stop to groan
about or moan about it, but I did ir.
At first the men-folk thereabout seemed to
think it was chaff to catch them with, or some?
thing of that kind; but I went steadily on
doing the work. After a monlh or so, two
young men, who were clerks in a store lhere,
suggested to me that they would help me. I
didn't think I wanted any help; it was only
what one man could do. Then they suggested
three or four ot us taking one month each,
and in that way they were worked in.
"It was the best loins that ever happened to
them. Having something to do In the church
was a means o? grace to them. None of
them were Christian young men; but I con?
sulted them about various things, and by-and
by I brought a case to them. I said, 'Here ie
a young man who ia In groat danger ol going I
the wrong way and losing h's soul. What do
you think ls the best means of getting at j
him?' It made them rather sober and thought?
ful to be talking about the salvation of that
young man's soul, and the upshot WEIS that1
they saved their own. They very soon alter
came Into the spirit and were converted, and
became good Christian men.
"Now, while I was there I preached the
beBt sermons I knew how to get up, Ire
member distinctly tbat every SuBday night I
had a headache. I went to bed every Sunday
night with a vow registered that I would buy
a farm and quit the ministry. U I have said
it once I have Bald lt five hundred times, but |
I spoilt a good farmer to make a poor
"I said a great many extravagant things in
my pulpit, and preached with a great deal of
crudeness. I preached a great many ser?
mons, which, after six months, I would not
have preached again. I frequently did as
many young men do, shaped into a general
truth that which was truth only under certain
circumstances, and with a particular claeB of
HOW TO FORM STYLE.
"I was a great reader of the old sermoni?
zes. I read old Robert South through and
through; I saturated m y eel f with South; I
formed much ci my style and my handling of |
texts on his methods. I obtained a vast
amount ol instruction and asslstaLce from
others of those old sermonizes, who. were as
familiar to me as my own name. I read Bar?
row, Howe, Sherlock, Butler and EdwardB
pan i cul arly. I preached a great many ser?
mons while readiug these old men, and upon
their discourses I often founded the frame-1
work of my own. After 1 had preached them
I said to myself: What will never do; I
wouldn't preach tnat again for all the world.'
But I was learning, and nobody ever tripped
me up. I had no board of elders ready to
bring me back to orthodoxy. I had lime to
sow all my ministerial wild oats, and without
damage io my people, for they knew too
little to know whether 1 was orthodox or not.
And lt was generally greatly to their ad?
vantage, because people are very much like
tlshes. Whales take vast quantities ot water
into their mouths for the sake of the ani?
malcular it contains, and then blow out the
water, while keeping In the food. People do
pretty much the same. They don't believe
half that you say. The part that is nutritious
they keep, and the rest they let alone. This
early ministerial training does not hurt them,
but lt ls Invaluable to a young man who ls
getting the bearings ot his new station, and
learning how to handle the ship that God bas
given bim to sall."
EATING AS A M KAN 3 OF GRACE.
The art ot eating aa a means of grace and a J
condition of ministerial success Is illustrated
by the experience of the author :
"Next comes lite stomach. In regard to that
everybody feels that be must not be
a glutton nor a gourmand; but there ls
very little discrimination and very little obser?
vation as to the quantity and quality and the
limes and seasons ol eating. Preachers may
be divided Into two great classes-the san
gululous class, who cauoot eat much if they
are going lo think or speak, and the class who
have the extieme nervous temperament, who
cannot speak or work unless they do eau On
Sunday morning, when I wake, my first
thought is thai it ls Sunday morning, and thc
very idea of it lakes away my appetite. I go
down, drink a cup of coffee, anti eat an egg
and halt a slice ot toast. That ls all I can em.
There Is just enough to sustain my system.
Then I preach, and ll I have not done very
well, I am hungry; but If I have done very
well, I cannot eat much dinner. That ls
because lhere ls a reaction of the nervous i
influence of the system. The. whole system I
ls working s-> much by the brain aud the
nerves that ihe stomach does not crave any?
thing. Just us grief, or fear, or any other ex?
treme passion takes away appetite, so does
active preaching. Ordinarily, I take but a
moderate dinner on Sunday. Supper with me
ls at five o'clock In the afternoon; I usually
take a cup of tea and a small piece of cracker.
That ls ull I can take. Then I go lo my even?
ing work, and when I get through I some
limes am satisfied to take nothiug but an
orange, which I ?at to gl"e my stomach some?
thing to do until morning, and to keep lt Irom
craving; for olten a flt of craving will give oue
a nightmare as quickly as overfeeding will.
At other limes I feel a strong appetite, and
(ben I eal. Perhaps once out ot five Sundays
I eat more just after preaching, morning or
evening, than I do all the rest of the day put
together. The system Indicates ir., and there?
fore I am not harmed by lt. It does not
disturn uv sleep, and digestion goes ou per?
THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS.
Reports from the South Afore Unfavor?
able In Character.
I From the Financial Chronicle, August IT.]
Our crop reports received by telegraph to?
night are very similar to ihe reports ot the last
lew week-.. Some ol them very favorable,
while others cunuot fail to excite anxiety as io
the result. It would appear quite clear lhat In
port lons ot Iho South there oas been ol late
weeks more rain than ls desirable, and lur
ther, that the army worm has made Hs appear?
ance lu certain portions ol the Quit Status at
least. What Injury will resull will depend
largely upon the weather In ihe luiure, warm
dry weat uer being much needed now at all
such points. From Calveston our telegram
states they are wanting rain, and have had
some, but not enough to do much good. In
the upper counties they have complained of
drought (or several weeks, and our correspon?
dent adds that the crop reports are becoming
less favorable. At New Orleans lt has
rained every day but one during the week,
heavy, short, local thunder storms. It has
remained on three days at Selma, and ai
Montgomery warm, sultry and wet weather
has prevailed. Our Montgomery correspon?
dent adds thai Ihe third crop of caterpillars ls
beginning lo appear, and ls causing Increased
anxiety, as the weather is no unfavorable.
From Mobile our telegram states lt has rained
on one day, that s bedding, rust and worms are
reported, and our correspondent believes that
the middle crop In that Slate will be poor.
Our correspondent at Macon continues to take
a hopeful view of the crop In that vicinity.
E". stales that it has rained three days and the
plant looks strong and healthy; the rumors of |
caterpillars In that section he considers ot lit?
tle Importance. At Coluinbua lr. has rained
every day but one, and considerable shedding
ls reported. Our Augusta correspondent |
slates that (hey are having too much rain
there. At Memphis crop reports are favor?
able, except rust at stune points.
The New York Cotton market.
NEW TORE, August IC.
The market during the past week has
shown as in tb' variation In tone and prices,
whether lor immediate or future delivery, as
could bc well imagined. Some weakness on

A ROMANTIC HISTORY .OF THE BER?
Early Days ot the Prime Donna-A.
First Engagement-Home Troubles
The Rising Star-She Becomes the Pet
of Meyerbeer-Lacea in the German
lu view o? the fact that Madame Pauline
Lucca will shortly appear here, the follow?
ing sketch of her life may not prove unin?
Pauline Lucca first saw the light of day in
the Imperial City of Vieona in the year 1842.
.The period of her childhood was one of labor
and privation. Uer parents posse.?sed a little
property but lost it all In the revolution of
1848, and were compelled to send their only
child to one of the common elementary
school*, where tho advantages wera very
limited. She soon developed a great taste for
music, but her parents were too poor lo ob?
tain for her competent instruction, and the
only means by which she could even get the
use ot note music was to become the
custodian ot the collection belonging to
the school, H being lier duty to gather it up
and put lt in its proper place after the ordinary
exercises. This permitted her at least to re?
ceive passive Instructions while listening to
others, of which she profited so well that,
being one day asked li she would like to re?
hearse a piece, she repeated lt entirely from
memory without hesitating at a single paseage.
The purity and accuracy ot ber execution in?
duced some persons among the audience to
oiler her ihe means lo qualify herseli lor a
chorus singer, and alterwards lo secure her a
place In ihe choir of one of the first churches
ot Vienna. A musical festival ot a religious
character Boon gave her an unlooked for op?
portunity to show her power. Hellens, then
prima donna of a Vienna theatre, had the
soprano part of a mass by Mozart on the occa?
sion. The bells tor the morning service were
ringing and the crowds were hasieulng to the
cathedral, when the chorister was lulurmed
that sudden Indisposition prevented ihe prima
donna from performing her pa?t. lu de?
spair, he irnuired if any one among the
chorus would venture to help bim out
of his embarrassment, when Lucca arose
unhesitatingly out ol the crowd and re?
sponded, bbe was accepted, and was succe.-s
iuI, and this triumph stuned her on her nuz?
zling career, which was for a season yet io
pass over thorns. She obtained an engage?
ment at the Court Opera with a small monthly
stipend, and irequenily came home from re?
hearsal or performing tired and hungry, io
find the drudgery of the household awaiting
her, Instead of food and rest. At last relief
came in the form of an engagement at ihe
provincial town of Olmuiz, where she ap?
peared In 1859 as Elvira lu "Ernaoi." Her
buccess here brought her a call to Prague,
where she found a critical and appreciative
public, and one inclined to lavor her in un un?
broken Bedes of triumphs through a difficult
round of performances. These brought the
name of Lucca io the eara cf Meyerbeer,
who listened with pleasure to the stories
of ber 'talent in his own "Huguenots"
and "Prophet." Meyerbeer lound his
greatest pleasure In the nurture and en?
couragement ol'struggling genius, and came
purposely lo Prague lo listen to Lucca In the
"Prophet." He was so delighted with his
new-found Bertha that he began Immediately
to use his intiuence to have uer go to Berlin.
The opera lu ibis capital was just then In a
critical condition, Its leading members be?
coming old and losing their power and popu?
larity, and a rival Iia'lan company carrying
off the public and the palm. Tue impresario
was gratified to hear of a new star, and hasten?
ed to Pague to judge for himself. Lucca that
evening played Pamlna lu the "Magic Finie."
and between the acts was offered au engage?
ment lu Berlin, which she accepted. Her first
appearance ut Hie Boyal Opera, In March,
1861, proved un eventful era In the history ol' |
Lucca and of that famous establishment. She
debuted as Valentina in the "Huguenots,"
and lind Hie most brilliant reception ever ac?
corded io a young artist. ~ TTinn Un? begining
io ihe end ol the opera she was honored by
rounds of applause Irom the entire house.
Lucca aud the Berliners were lovers at first
Bight, and from timi period UH the present
lime Bhe has .been tue darling of the royal op?
eratic board.4. She has been as true to them
as they have been to her, and her name on ibe
billi auy time during the last len j ears has
been enough to hil the no us o in every nook
and corner. Notlilog hos ueen able lo tempt
her from Berlin permanently. She makes
brief engagements with London and the Kus
slan capital, In both ol which sbt> ls adored,
and where she receives the most distinguished
attention and cosily presents, but she ie tu ms
lo Berlin as her home, and the denizens ot
that capital o? all classes, from the court to
the common people, speak of her as "Our
Lucca," or "Unsere Kleine Pauline." Her !
voice ls a fresh aud brilliant soprano, running
through the widest range with great equality
uud Hie most regular shading, and making It?
self distinctly heard above ihe crash oi the
orchestra or the loudest surginga of the cho?
rus. She ls also eminently sympathetic, and
responds to the slightest nuances ol Hie
composer, assisting by artistic mien and
gesture lu Ihe dram atp' effect of Hie per?
formance. She has underiaken a vast round
of characters, and never fulls In any. Among
her favorites ure Selika In "L'A/rlcalue,"
Leonora In "Troratore," Pamlna lu the Magic
Finie," Marlo In tho "Daughter of ihe Begi
ment." She seems quite as much at home in
comic opera as when pori raj lug the airlie of
passions, and thus she is the mistress of the
whole operatic repertoire, and In her varied
characters we find her as Marguerite lu
"Faust," the Page In "Figaro," and ihe Zerll
nas lu "Don Juan," and "Fra Dlavolo." Mey
eih -er became much attached to lier from her
very first performance. In Berlin, and delight?
ed lo see her lu the characters of his own cre?
ation, In the representation o? which he gave
her mauy hints, always under the Beal ut
secrecy, tor it was nol until the death of the
great maestro that Lucca was at liberty to tell
ot'ihe deep and cartful study thal she had
made under hts guidance. A great part of
the "Africaine" was crealed under her eye, and
ihe leading character received much ul its shad?
ing wah a view io make her Its m?de). And lu
accordance wllh ibo express request of the
composer, Lucca was the first p*rtorraer ot
this part, in Berlin aud London. Meyeibeer
was iiiordinai .-ly fond of the applause of Purls,
and was mo.-t anxious io have Lucca lend her
genius to the presentation of lils last work in
that city; but Lucca, like Lind, acceded to his
wishes iu ntl but this-holli persistently refus?
ed io appear on the French si age. About six
years ago Lucca married Baron von B?nden, a
lieutenant In ihe Uoyul Guards. Tu possess
lils chosen bride, he was forced to give tip Ins
commission; for custom lorbade lum to huid
Ulla nod marry a sluger ur au actress. But
whtn Hie war broke our, he entered ihe ser?
vice Irom patriotic motives as tdllcer ol Hie
reserves, and Lucca herself wus known io be
mflamed with enthusiasm for tue German
cause. At the engagement at Mais-la-Tour lie
received a dangerous wound ia ihe head,
which fur a lime was cousldered fa?
tal. When Hie news reached Lucca she
dropped everything and hastened io the
bedside ol her huBbatid, through a hosi
of embarrassment that would have apt alled
an ordinary woman. Tne Blory of her adven?
tures and uials lu ihe eflort io find her hus?
band loinn one of the most, Interesting
episodes ot the wur. Again and again ano
was turned back irom me Hues, wnen she
would indignantly excliim: "I am Lucca.
Hie Berliner's Lucca, and must see my dying
husband"-au appeal i hat at last brought her
to the bedside ol'him whom she loves so well.
She never kilt the baron until he was able to
uccompany her home, when they falrlv had a
trlumpnal entry imo Berlin. Lucca's next
appearance belore her beloved Berliners was
a scene of ihe wildest enthusiasm on the part
ol the audience. Lucca undoubtedly holds
the very first rank among ihe prime donne ot
the modern stage, and is une o? the most
genuine representatives o? Its peculiarities
and tendencies, which is character rather
than abstract musical effort. She ls ever In?
clined to attract and heighten ihe sympathy of
her hearers by appearing belore them, hot su
much as a concert stager as a singing actress,
and to Hits end she Is dramatic as well as
musical, and a great genius In both spheres.
She ls a genuine child of the period, yielding
to Hs demands and perfecting Its aspirations.
Voices there are that may pour forth In migh?
tier currents, or melt Into sweeter or solier
accents, but lhere ls none so lull of warm
sjmpathy, or which possesses the faculty, by
the lightest touch, o? stirring the finest leel
logs o? the soul. She la electric ia her flashes,
as she is magnetic ID her attraction, and in ber
passionate scenes there ls a conilnuous flow
of the deepest feeling, with an unceasing
glow of ardor and enthusiasm. All tbe bliss
and all the agony that the soul can experience,
from the loftiest expression of ecstacy to the

A NEPHEW OF HIS UNCLE,
Consul Butler's Plot to' Harder Major
Campbell-General Lorlng and Colo?
nel Reynolds do a Lutte Plain-Talk?
ing- about tbe Consular Assassin.
The following letters from General Lor lng
and Colonel Reynolds are printed In the New
ALEXANDRIA, July 20, 1872.
Dear-: I send you a copy of my
official report ot the attempt of Buller, consul
general ot the United States, In company
with hired assassins by the name of Wadieigh
and fcjtrologo, tojassaaslnate Major Campbell,
of the Egyptian army. There never was a
more dastardly attempt on the part of a high
official to commit murder. Alter the outrage
he (Buller) begged me like a dog to let him oe
' my frleud, and told me what a great friend ot
mme he had always been, when he knew that
ne was lying. Tue poor, miserable assassin
thought the victim of his cowardice was
dangerously wounded, and SB he began to
feel ihe cord drawing around his own das?
tardly neck he tried nie best to save himself.
I can't tell you of ihe number of outrages
this red-handed scoundrel has perpetrated in
this country, covering blmsdf wheo he could
by the mantle ol' the government as consul
general. After gtvlng his word of honor to
myself and the Government ot Egypt to hold
in clOBe arrest the assassin Wadieigh, be ran
off with him to avoid meeting the responsibili?
ty of his acts, wllh the most damning proof?
ugalnst him and with a lie lu his mouth. He
wrote numerous letters to UB all as a sore of
legacy, Iniormlog us that be did not Intend to
prosecute ua bet?re a court which, he staled,
hud been ordered to iry us.
Now, us nobody in Egypt can understand
why the fellow wrote these letters, as we are
not being tried, and as no such court has been
ordered or contemplated, you may readily im?
agine the contempt we have for him and his
Information. Our whole course is above board,
and shows that we have tried io avoid the
scoundrel ever .since his arrival. Looking
upon him as a coward and a blackguard, we
had as lillie to do with him as possible. Not?
withstanding all this, there is scarcely an
officer in all Egypt that has not snubbed him
: or kicked him. He Is known here as a liar, a
blackguard and a coward, and numerous in?
stances are known to all Egypt of his pranks
In each of iheso department s If his recent at?
tempt at assassination bas no other effect,
there is at leapt reason for universal congratu?
lation In the fact that the country is rid of sucb
a monster. Yours, W. N. LORIN?.
Letter from Colonel Reynolds.
ALEXANDRIA; July 22, 1872.
Dear Sir-There has oeen an occurrence in
this distant country of such a character as to
call down upon lc the indignation of every re?
spectable gentleman in ic lu this city, on
the evening of the 12th Instant, Mr. George
Butler, the American consul-general, closed
lils career of outragea and ecaudal by leading
In an attempt io assassinate an American offi?
cer In the Egyptian army. In this exploit he
was attended by two notorious creatures In
hts employ named Wadieigh and Strologo.
The facts sworn to by gentlemen present and
furnished this government are about as
follows, and from inese statements the Ameri?
can people can judge ol ihe dlsgracelul con?
duce of their shameful representative: While
General Lorlng, Colonel-Reynolds and Major
Campbell were passlog out of a saloou where
they had been dinlng,they saluted Mr. Buller,
who was dining ac another table in the
name saloon. Buller, without cause or pro?
vocation, called Major Campbell back in
a mau uer so extraordinary and offen?
sive, lhat the major turned in great sur?
prise to learn the cause ol Butler's con?
duct, when the lauer cried out, "I wish to
soe you sir," and he rushed upon the Major
and struck him. The Major, confounded and
surprised, defended himself as best be could
witta a small cane he had in his hand. The
assassins Butler had with him, understanding
the motives which prompted the outrage,
joined him !n the assault. Tne man Wadieigh,
as soou us Campoed turned io know whai
Buller wanted, drew his revolver and com?
menced lils work of murder, crying out at ihe
same time, "Let us commence the work I"
Be tired upon Campbell, who, finding himself
surrounded by assassins, backed gradually
imo the street, receiving ihe Are of Wadieigh.
urged on by Butler, who cried out, "KUI him !
kill him!" Colonel Reynolds,an old and amiable
gentleman, Unding Campbell unarmed and
wounded, and feeling that his friend was
being murdered, drew his pistol aud fired
upon the assassin Wadieigh, who had already
fired three shots ut Campbell. After empty?
ing his pl-tol Wadieigh ran, and thus escaped
from Colonel Reynolds, who In the darkness [
misled his aim. General Lorlng, who was
present, unprepared for the unexpected as?
sault, without weapons and with but one arm,
did ail he could lo arrest ihe affair, Imploring
Buller and lils friends to stop their work of
Major Campbell is badly wounded in the left
knee, and ls not yet out ot danger ot losing
Ills leg. and possibly his life. General Luring,
after exerting all lils powers to prevent Hie
affair, went lo the office of the chief of po?
lice to lay lite facts before him, and if not in
his power to arrest the creatures under the
protection and encouragement nf the consul,
whose person unfortunately In this affair was
saved from arrest, at least to stay further as?
sassinations. He was (oliowed by Butler and
nls party, who, like all criminals, finding Ma?
jor Campbell badly wounded without cause,
mid believing him in a dangerous condition,
began to realize i heir own position, and en?
deavored to stop the course of Justice by
sympathetic appeals to hush the matter up;
and one Strologo, well known for his coward?
ly attack at Hie Instigatiou of Butler upon an
unarmed missionary, was ready to turn
Slate's evidence, and btu for oelng repulsed
by Colonel Reynolds would have told ihe
who e story. He. however, Informed Gene?
ral Lorlng that he wanted him to know thai
he had nothing to do with the atlack upon
Campbell, and that he had iried his best to
dissuade Butler and Wadieigh from doing lt,
but could not succeed.
Butler refused to permit these men to be
arrested by me police, though one of them at?
tempted al the police staiiou io draw his pis?
tol on General Lorlng. Butler declared that,
he could not pul lils friend Wadieigh in irons,
but. pledged his honor, such as lc ls, lo keep
him in conAnemeiit.
This is a brief history of the facts as they
have been sworn to before the authorities.
Notwithstanding Butler's pledge to Ihe gov?
ernment to keep Wadieigh coufioed, he him?
self has fled and taken with him the prisoner,
Wadieigh. This Wadieigh ls an adventurer
who came to ibis country without means, and
was unable to support himself until Butler
employed him to rio his bidding. Buller In?
formed his most intimate friend In this coun?
try thal he employed Wudlelgh to procure
women for his purposes, and that Wadieigh
lived In ihe house of notorious women lor
whom he procured paramours. He also
dogged gentlemen In their wanderings and
reponed mem lo his employer.
AS m M m character ot Strologo, the most
convincing proofs have been forwarded by
General Staring, the United States commis?
sioner to inls government, showing that be
has been engaged bv the consul in forcing
ibose appointed to office under Butler to pay
large sums of money for their appointments.
Moreover, we have positive proof that the
attack on the missionary was Instigated by
I give the above as embodying the sworn
testimony given to ihe government. Should
you see Mr. Phillips, of the Herald, you can
show him this letter, and, as I know him to be
a gentleman of high character and a lover of
justice, he may possibly mike use of it.
Respectfully, Ac, A. W. REYNOLDS.

ble citizens of the authorities' want ot vigor
in suppressing the riots. Ruffians with pis?

TO THF EDITOR OF THE REWS.
In your issue of the 16th Instant, tinder cap?
tion of "That Mythical Armed Force,1" I see'
that "Robert Smalls, colored State Senator
from Beaufort County," is accredited as having11
received the amount of five hundred dollars
from that appropriation. Now, I will here
stale that I drew the amount of five hundred
dollars from the appropriation to organize and
equip the militia, and for which I performed T
the following service : Pursuant to instruc?
tions from the adjutant-general, and as lien-'
tenant-colonel, I proceeded to organize tbe
Third Regiment, N. O. S. C., paying the freight
on one thousand eland of arm?, accoutre?
ment-?, Ac, which were shipped to me lrom
Co ! u m ola, these arms and accoutrements being
reshipped by me through various portions ol
the county. In addition to this I was com?
pelled to travel through the county In the
discharge of my duties as mustering officer. .
For these services I drew the amount ol five.
hundred dollars as aoove staled, but lt Is the
first lime I was aware that lt was from ibo
..armed force," as I know of no services ever,
performed by me that could be properly paid
for out of that appropriation.

when we come to discuss the question of
peace, of life and deaih, In ten or eleven
states ot this Union, we ought to talk about
the question whether we ure Democrats or
Republicans, whether we ere working with
