A ROMANTIC LAWSUIT.
A very remarkable lawtult, says the Louis?
ville Ledger, which baa been for some time
pending in the courts of Kentucky and Indi?
ana, was brought to a termination a day or
two ago by the agreement ot the parties to
the suit to a compromise.
It will be remembered that some years ago
a German gentleman named Gustavus Sohur
man resided lu Louisville. He was the pos?
sessor ot a considerable amount of property,
lived lo good style, drove fine horses, sported
a footman in livery, aud claimed to be a Ger?
man nobleman. He was married to a Ger?
man lady, bad a young and Interesting family,
and to ali appearances waa prosperous and
happy. But, us lu so many families, there
was a ghost In this oneilbe secret of whose
existence did not coma to llgbt until tbe
death of the principal actor In tblB little so?
Gustavus was a resident of Alx-la-Chapelle,
a little city In Rhenish Prussia, pursued tbe
business of cloth manufacturer, aud was what
might be considered, well off, bis real aud per?
sonal estate belog worth about 140,000 thalere,
or about $100,000. He loved, or thought be
loved, a lady named Amelia Eberbardlne G?ll,
daughter of one of the royal counsellors, aod
lo 1846 be proposed marriage, was accented,
aod the marriage was performed In that year.
Au ante-nuptial contract was entered into be?
tween the two, according to tbe code Napo?
leon, which was io force at Alx-la-Chapelle,
by which In case of the death of tbe husband
before the wife she became emitted to one
eighth In fee simple of bis entire estate, and
one-fourth ol the estate dnrlng her lifetime.
besides having a community ot Interest In all
acquisitions to the common fund after mar?
riage, which community ot' Interest would en
title her to one-half.
The two lived happily together for some
time, or apparently so. The life of the wile,
however, was soon made wretched by the dis?
covery that another bad supplanted ber In her
husband's affections. This, no we ver, was not
exactly the case; lt was she In reality who had
taken the place which nature had assigned to
another. Schurman had In his employ a num?
ber ot factory girls, one of whom, Catherine
Bengels, was possessed ot more than ordinary
beauty. The Impressible young bachelor
was smitten with her bttauty, but the Inexora?
ble laws ot society governing the little Rhe?
nish province In nhlcti he lived held over him
a terror of proscription which prevented him
from doing that which his heart prompted.
He loved Catherine Bet gels, and bis loved
was returned, but be married Amella 8. G?ll,
who brought to bim a proud name and an ex?
tensive dower. But tor tbe crime which
Schurman bad committed against bis nature,,
he was amply punished.
His married life was unhappy, while his love
for the lowly Catherine Beogels became even
more Intense, now that lt was impossible for
them to be legally united. They met clandes?
tinely, and the Intercourse coming to the
knowledge of the unhappy wife, she became
distressed beyond measure, upbraiding ber
husband with bis perfidy, aod threatened di?
vorce. This rendered the husband desperate,
and, ooenly avowing his attachment, took
Catharine Beugels into bia domicile. Becom?
ing discontented with tbls condition of things,
Schurman decided upon emigrating to Amer?
ica, and came to this country. Be returned
lu 1849, and gathering together what property
he could, departed Ta 1850 for the United
States, in company witt Catharine Bengels.
Before his departure bis wife instituted suit
for divorce. On the arrival of Schurman he
proceeded to Louisville, where he took up bis
residence, and sued for a divorce from his
wife Amelia, which was granted, when he im?
mediately married the woman who had eloped
Gustavus Schurman purchased real estate in
Inlanapolis aud Louisville, and by his tact and.
business management increased his wealth to
over a million of dollars. At tbe time of his
death be had seven onildren-two by his first
wife and five by his second wife. In making
bis will be left bis Prussian property to his two
German heirs, and his American property to
his American heirs.
Tbe first wife, Amelia, learning of tbe death
of her husband, obtained possession, by legal
prooens, of the Prussian estate, and sued for
her share, as per marriage contract, ot tba de?
cedent's estate In America. Her son-Gustavus
F. Schurman-represented her with powers of
attorney, and the ablest lawyers In the eli y
were employed to prosecute the case. The
pleadings were voluminous, and as a vast
amount ot property was Involved, great inter?
est was manifested in the result. It appeared,
however, that as the case progressed the
plaintiff weakened somewhat in enforcing her
claims. Being tn a foreign country, and copies
of proceedings in loreign courts being fre?
quently rendered necessary as testimony ia
tbe American courts, she became wearied, and
finally agreed to a compromise by accepting,
in lieu of all dalma, the sum of one hundred
CHANG INO THFJ GAUGE OF RAILHOADS.-The
rapidity with which the gauge ol a railway
can be changed ls one of ibe marvels of the
day. A year or so ago the broad-gauge nil
way from Cincinnati to St. Louis wus changed
to a narrow-gauge road in the course ot a (In?
gle Sunday; and on last Sunday two hundred
miles of the Grand Trunk road, betw- en Sarnia
and Fort Erie, was changed from a gauge ol
five feet six Inches to one of lour feet eight and
a half inches. It will be noticed that al M he
chaoges which have hitherto been mader'the
gauge of railways actually in ?se bave been in
the direction of a narrower gauge. The Erle
ls now the only great road in the country
wbicb uses the broad gauge, and this is to be
abandoned in favor ot the narrow gauge when?
ever the existing rolling stock ls worn out.
The broad gauge bas been thoroughly tried
here and in England, and is now universally
acknowledged to be a failure.
A SENSA'K'ON SERMON.
ONE Ol? HENRY WART? BEECHER'S
His Views of the En ori in Popular
Education-Thc Dlf nllyof Labor.
Many readers of THE Na tra are doubtless
curious to know what manner of sermons are
those that bare won for the Ber. Henry
Ward Beecher so wide n popularity at the
North. The following 1B f :om the New York
Son's report of Mr. Bencher's last Sunday
evening sermon at Plymouth Ghnrob: ?
Mr. Beecher took his text from Ephesians
iv., 28: "Let him that stole steal no more; but
rather let him labor, worMog with his hands
the thing which is good, that he may have to
give to him that needetb."
That la the pattern of a reformed Ure, said
Mr. Beecher. Some people gain their ilvlog
without earning it. It ?anees suspicions 01
sleight of band. "Let him that stole steal no
more." It ls necessary to have been a thief
to steal, but there 1B a gnat deal ot stealing
not done by thieves, ann I advise all those
[ who obtain their livelihood in an Improper
way to earn lt in a propel.' way hereafter.
. "BT TOT SWEAT OP THY BROW."
Every man should earn his own Ilvlog. I
do not say lt Is a misfortune to be born rich,
but I do say that o? one hundred men born
with money and one hundred men boro with?
out lt the chances to fiad virtneand happl-1
I ness are better in the last hundred. He who 1
j ls born in Hie to rise early, to work, to earn I
[ hin living, Is the happy man. A man who
works la healthier and happier than he who I
does not; and he Is, moreover, debarred from
those temptations which spring from the pos-1
BesMon of wealth, and those plt-lalh which
have ruined BO many young men. It Is not
only necessary to earn our own livelihood, bul
wo must rise with th? sun in summer and
before lt In winter, and von: with our bands.
There ls no degradation In labor. It exalts
the man. It was not dlsesOemed In earlier I
days. Only In Greece a ad Rome lt was de-1
splsed because the Greeks and Bomana owned I
slaves. The nation to which we owe so muco
and from which we bav? learned so muoh
the Jewish-ci*loo-always houored labor.
The Jews taugb"t"~trn4i-^MIdren some little
craft, and they were not .drudges: A drudge I
is a man who labors with bis band and has no
mind io control bim, no conscience behind lt,
no manhood. I
HR. BEECHER A3 AN ACTOR. !
ir I were a cabinetmaker do you suppose 11
could construct a cradle without slngiog a
lullaby all the time? [Laughter.] Could I
saw, plane, and rub;saw, plane, and rub (imi I
tatlog ihe movements et tbeae tool*,) and not
put my heart in the worR? li I did I would be I
a drudge. The builder la a drudge who every
lime he drives a nail wonders where he can
get a poorer and cheaper one.
Men tell us that a man's character may be
told by his wrltlug. I can tell you the char-1
acier of a builder and architect of a cold, big
house. That man would be heartless and
bloodless. But go into a nice,?w&rm, cozy I
house, and yon would Hod out that ihe mani
who ballt lt was a social, good man, with a
heart and brains too.
A LIB. j
Men do not like labor, because the worker I
tanita below the thinker. That'd a Democra-1
Uoleellng. I Bay I'm Just as good as au j
other man because all men are equal. I beg
your pardon, alt men are not equal. They
are not equal ia elze. height, girth; not equal
In virtue; out all men are civilly equal before
tho law. When a man says, "I'm Just as geod
as any man," lt may be so, and lt may not be
so. When the universal man Bays so, lt's a I
That has been the grand blunder of the
Communists and Internationals. They want-1
ed all men e jual with unequal means. The
most produotive part- of man Is the animal
part. A man shears a sheep, and there ar? I
Ave hundred men In the eame township who
can do the eame thing. Then the wool ls
sent to the manufactory, but lhere will not
be Uve hundred men who can weave the floe
cloth. The result ls ibat the man who shears I
gets one dollar a day, while the weaver gets I
three or four dollars a day. This is the result
of brains and education.
In Ohio, when I lived there, I knew emi-1
nenily educated German gentlemen earning a
dollar a day breaking stones on a macadam-1
Ized road. Measured by avocation they were
low, but they were thinkers, ranking higher
they were honorable. I
A man who has beet a bard worker all his
life says to himself, "I bave a smart boy. I'll I
sive him chances I never had. Til give bim a
good education. Tes, :.'ll make a lawyer out ol I
him." [Immoderate 1 nighter.] In the month [
of June lhere will be five huudred thousand
blossoms on every ap rte tree. There will be
about three hundred apples, and the remalnd
er will drop lo the ground. It ls the same In
all professions. Out of Ave hundred thousand
candidates there will only be three hundred
professional men. '
TAB CURSE OP WEALTH. j
The great trouble Is that men ar? more an x-1
lous to be rich than to be happy. I never knew I
a minister who warned bis people about being
extravagant who rei'ised to receive a good
salary. I never d erid ?d wealth, never exhort-1
ed you about being economical, for I would I
Just as Her walk Into my yard and say to my
cows, "Oh, Alderney a, oe carelul of your
milk !" [Laughter.]
A man ma; be rloh and yet be a fool. O? I
one hundred who have wealth but one knows
how to use lt. The Insane notion that If a
man only had wealth he wouldn't; want auy
thing else has been the min ot many young
men. Sudden wealth and immense wealtn
are the dream of many men In cilles who have
lett ibeir tarma and workshops lo come here. I
I venture lo say that there are five thousand I
young men here' between twenty and thirty
years ol age who havd nothing to do.
NEW TORE IS FOLL OF THEM. j
Ido not wish to be disrespectful, but ask
one of them If he can do a day's work. He I
will answer, No. Are you good on shipboard?
No, I've never been to sea. Caa you make a
chair? No. Are you a blacksmith? No. Are
you a oarpenter? No Ia there any thia g oui
God's earth that you nan do? No, not a thing.
[Laughter.] Now think, what can you do?
Well, I am a good bookkeeper. [Laughter.]
They can do nothing and can get nothing to
do. Not alone is tale the case In New York,
but in all the large cities of the Union.
WHAT TBET LAUOHED AT.
Thousands of young men would starve to
death on a hundred acres or laud because
they couldn't raise corn. They would be
houseless aod homeless in a lumber-yard, J
barefooted with all toe leather In the swamp |
at their command. They have abandoned
work, and want something nice and easy. 11
think tnat the respectable Gurman in Ola BIX
by-nlne attic, pegging away at his last isl
much more respectable than the young man
who hos left his father's farm before he learned j
io work. You ought to go lo my house and
see ihe number ot applications that are made
to me dui.v. Why, people must think ibat I
own Cern ral Park, and Prospect Park, aod
the postofflce, and the customhouse, and the
navy yard. [Laughter.] They won't believe
ibat I have no influence in Washington.
[Laughter.] But I never turn them away. I
sympathize with them and assist them when
I can. I never sav, "Young man, go West."
[Loud laughter.] I try to encourage them.
A WORD TO THE RICH.
Mr. Beecher next addressed himself to the
wealthy members of blB congregation, and
said: Even if you are worth a ml.lion to
dav, your Bon may be forced to beg his bread
because he-can't work. Your daughters can?
not be chambermaids, or cooks, or washer?
women-what's to become ol tnem ? [Laugh?
ter.] In one thing I would have you Juda
izea. There ls an old and true Jewish pro?
verb, which saya: "He who brings up his
child without a trade brings him np to steal."
The papers tell us of people going to seek
their fortunes In America. It should be work
for their fortunes. Tell your children to work.
They say lt will 1:111 them. Shall they live ?
No. [Laughter.] Shall they commit suicide ?
No. What, then? ?Imply this: Eat the
bread you earn or don't eat.
Mr. Beacher closed with a touching perora?
tion, in which, speaking of the rising genera?
tion, he Bald: "Len them be men who earn
their living by the sweat of their brow, and
who can hold up their big, bard hands and
say they never took a penny they did not
earn." . - .
THE CLOUE OF TBE COTTON PICKING \
[From the Nev Torc Bulletin.]
Tbe cotton picking season: this year com?
menced earlier and, continued longer than
usual, and may generally be regarded as one
of the most favorable tbat has ever occurred.
The earliaesa of the season ls attributed to the
Increased u se of fertilizers which produce the
effect of maturing the crop two weeks In ad?
vance of the usual time. But the weather
was superb from first to last throughout tbe
entire cotton area, and there were few days
when lt was necessary to suspend picking. A
?light frost lo Georgia a mooth ago did more
good than harm, as lt helped to open the bolls
without Injuring the manie, it waa not until
the middle of November that tbere was any
damaging frost, and eveo then lt was
not general In all the Southern States.
Even as lt was lt arrived too late to
do -any harm. It may be Bafely affirmed that
there were absolutely little or no losses tbls
year from Inability to gather the crop. Every
pouod of cotton that could be picked was
picked, and tbere can be no doubt that tbe
unusually favorable picking season went lar
towards oomoeniatlog for the losses occasion?
ed by worra* and weather during the last few
weeks or months of summer. There' was
plenty ot time for the crop to mature, and
plenty of lime to pick lt. The circumstances
were also favorable lor ginning, and the late
rains Increased the navigable capacity of the
rivers., so that the vast quantities piled along
their banks could all be shipped. It also ap?
pears that planters, whether o wing to political
causes or not it ls scarcely worth while to in?
quire, also manifested unusual activity in
ousblng tbe crops to a market. The news ot
the burolog ot a great many gin-bouses In
S'juth Carolina may also have contributed as
much as the unexceptionably blgh price at this
season to Induce planters to avoid the risks
o? housing their crops. These, and other ob?
vious causes, will account for the very many
receipts ac all tbe Southern ports, amounting,
on the,15th of November to a total ot 887,688
nales, being an increase of no less than 220.
980 bales over the corresponding period last
year, and 88.980 more than In 1870. Thus it
will be Been that an unusually large propor?
tion ot tbe crop bas already come 1er ward,
bnt exao.ly what proportion, of course can
no. be determined, as a knowledge of tbe pre?
cise quantity remaining in planters' hands ls ,
manifestly impossible, and is only a subject of
speculation. It may be safely concluded, how?
ever, that, the actual results of this orop are
much more satisfactory tbau was anticipated
at the commencement of the picking season,
although falling considerably below the expec?
tations that were warranted undi towards tbe
dose of the growing season. It ls always a
favorable sign when i he Southern papers ab?
stain from complaints' abont cotton, and it is
remarkaole (hat on this point we were wholly
unable to discover any evidences of dlssatls
laction during the entire picklog season.

TWELVE HUNDRED KISSES.-The Turin Opln
lone relates a curious peace-making ceremony
which took place a lew days ago at Sedinl:
"Twenty-nine families of eight districts of An
glona took a share in thia solemn pact of
peace. Tbe bishop ol the diocese, accompanied
by five priests and the authorities of the coun?
try, assisted at the ceremony. It began by
the assembling in a large field near Sedinl of
the different groups of tbe parties Interested,
who afterwards formed Into separate rows of
offenders and offended by the assassinations
committed or wounds inflicted by vendetta
within the last ten years. Then, placing
themselves opposite the bishop and prelect,
they embraced each other two by two, at first
with a certain reluctance, but. by degrees the
ice melted, and soon the greatest cordiality
was manifested on both sides. The twenty
nine lamllles, with tbelr relations to the fourth
generation, amounted in ail to twelve hun?
dred people, who thus exchanged the kiss or
peace. A crowd ol more than two thousand
persons lormed a circle round this Interesting
scene, which left a deep and most pleasing im?
pression on all hearts. During the remainder
ht the day and on the following morning the
most sincere joy and satlBfactl-n were mani?
fested on all sides, and will, lt is hoped, be
as lasting as lt was solemly celebrated.
