A Sensational Scandal.
Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe baa writ?
ten a sensational artiolo for the Atlantic
Monthly, professing to give the true cause
of the separation of Lord and Lady By?
ron. We have not space for o publica?
tion ol these beastly oharges, but give,
in lien thereof, such comments of the
press as throw light on the alleged mys?
tery, and develop exactly the worth and
infamy of the evidence. The Missouri
"This mystery-if we are to believe
Mrs. Stowe's account-ia now cleared
away by the revelation of such awful
Slilt that the tragio story of Beatrice
enoi ia is as nothing in oomparison.
'.The following words contain the
essence of the charge preferred ngninst
Lord Byron by his wife, speaking
through her friend:
" 'From the height at which he might
have been happy as the husband of a
noble woman, he fell into the depths oi
a secret adult?rons intrigue with a blood
relation, so near in consanguinity, that
discovery must have been utter ruin and
expulsion from civilized society.'
"The person here alluded to can be
no other than Lord Byron's half-sister,
the Honorable Augusta Maria Leigh. Il
will be remembered that tue father o!
the poet, 'Mad Jock Byron,' ns he was
called, waa a confirmed roue, so utterly
infamous in his wickedness that he wai
virtually banished from decent society
In his twenty-seventh year, he elopec
with the Marchioness of Carmarthen
whose husband shortly after procured s.
divorce, when Byron married her. Sh<
died in 1784, a viotim of his neglect nut
ill-treatment. One daughter, Augusta
was the sole fruit of this wretched union
The following year Byron married Misi
Catherine Gordon, the mother of th<
author of 'Childe Harold.' Augusta
then, must have been at least two o
three years tho senior of her half-brother
but a strong affection existed betweet
them, the records of which are seal
tered through both his poetry aud coi
respondenoe. She was the last to leav
him previous to his final departure froc
England; her name was among the las
that lingered on his lips when ho la
dying at Missolonghi, and hebequeathe
to her all the property he possessed, e>
cept what was already settled upon Lad
Byron and Ado. It was Augusta's han
?which placed over Byron's tomb, i
Hucknall Church, the tablet which beat
a name that needs no sculptured marbi
to make it immortal.
"Augusta died a number of yeui
since, and, up to this time, no breath <
slander from any quarter bus ever st ai ut
"The world is now asked to belie-,
that this lady formed, and continue
through several years at least, nu ince
tuous connection with her brother, ac
thal a child was boru of the unuatnr
alliance.' But this is not all; we a
asked to believe that Lady Byron kue
of the connection immediately after h
marriage, and that, from a sense of du
to her husband, and for the sake of 'tl
angel that was in him,' she tacitly san
tioned it by permitting the partner
his crimo to remain under her roof whi
she herself continued to hold the poi
tion of a wife. More than this even; -
are told that she did not leave Lord B
ron of her own free will, but was driv
away by him; that the offspring of t
intrigue was protected and cared for 1
her until its death, and that the aai
kind offices were afterward extended
the mother. The world shrinks baok i
voluntarily from the contemplation
the horrible theme, and nothing I
Mrs. Stowe's high character for integr
and truthfulness prevents the story fr<
being at once consigned to oblivion a
slander too vile for criticism, much 1
contradiction. But there can be
doubt on one point-what Mrs. Sto
says was derived from conversatie
with and memoranda submitted to 1
by Lady Byron herself. The wh
fabric, then, must stand or fall upon 1
veracity of Lady Byron; there is
other proof, nor does Mrs. Stowe ch
that there is any.
"Now, while we are willing to cone
all the admirable qualities to Lt
Byron whioh it is possible for a won
to possess, we are forced to the cone
sion that she either deliberately falsi:
or was obeated into believing as :
what was only a monstrous hallucinal
of the brain. Bryon's open immorn
has long been acknowledged, even
the most enthusiastic admirers of
genius, but we contend that ther
nothing in his recorded worels or acti
which will justify such allegation;
these. "Reckless, defiant sinner he i
have been, but that he ever stooped 1
self in such beastly criminality as is 1
set forth, we do not believe. Nor i
did, do wo imagine for a moment th
woman of Lady Byron's purity
principle would have consented, i
any motive however high and nobb
have not only cloaked his infany
her own nnspotteel garments, but ace
ed him os her husband anel the fathi
The Republican then refers to an
ole from Blackwood, on the other sie
the question, and thus continues:
"The article from Blackwood wi!
found exceedingly interesting in coi
tion with Mrs. Stowe's statement, a
a fair companion-piece to it. Tc
mind it uttorly disproves Lady By
story as told to Mrs. Stowe, bot it shows,
moreover, that Mrs. Stowe was not the
first who had heard of it. As yet there
is an utter absence of faot or circum?
stance to sustain lha horrible charge,
and the verdict of the world, upon the
caso as it stands now, will be that it rests
wholly upon the unsupported assertion
of a woman who was forced to give some
extraordinary explanation of her unfor?
giving conduct towards her husband."
The Co uri er- Journal pursues the theme
with indignation and pours the seven
vials of wrath npon the perpetrator of
this scandal and the publisher of it. It
"A mystery has huug over tho subject
for half a century, anti Mrs. Stowe pro?
fesses to reveal it. The professed reve?
lation is most revolting. Tho illustrious
poet, we ore asked to believe, was guilty
of habitual nnd long-continued" incest
with his^sister, and had a child by her,
who died in Lady Byron's arms years
afterward when Byron was a wanderer
in self-exilo from his country. But thiB,
even if true, is not, as it purports to be,
an explanation of tho separation of Lord
and Lady Byron. According to tho
statement, Lady Byron was anxious to
the last to live with her husband, and it
was he who rudely rent tho conjugal ties
asunder. Now if she kuew him to be
guilty of the horrible crime of incest, it
was reason enough why she should
abandon him, but surely no reason at
nil why ho should abandon her, and seek
to make her his enemy, especially if, as
is represented, ho was terribly anxious
for tl"- concealment of his guilt, and she
was the only person who had the power
to reveal it. Wo do not believe that, if
she had known him to be liviug in the
commission of incentuons acts, she
would have been so unwomanly as to re?
main with him for year?, as she is said to
have done, or even for a single day. The
woman who lives with an incestuous
husband seems not many degrees remov?
ed from incest. The very thought is re?
volting to human nature.
"Mrs. Stowe says, that, when she waa
in Earope, she made the acquaintance of
Lady Byron, and, that the latter confided
to her the whole story of the relations
between herself and Lord Byron, with
permission to publish it at some aftet
period if events should render the publi?
cation necessary. Unwilling to question
Mrs. Stowe's personal veracity, wc shall
not dwell upon tho intrinsic improba?
bility that Lady Byron, passing by al
her thousands of distinguished and
trusted acquaintances, would select an
American womau, little more than r
stranger to her, to perform this exceed
ingly delicate and important service ac?
cording to her own discretion. But, i
' authority was given to publish tho storj
ia tho ovent of the publication becom
ing necessary, the authority has beet
grossly abused. The publication canno
be considered as either necessary o
proper. It can do no good to any one
So far as believed, it injures all to whoa
it refers. It dishonors the memory o
both husband and wife. The excusi
offered by Mrs. S. for the publication a
this time is the appearance of a Life o
Byron by the Countess Guiccioli, one
his mistress, who, as Mrs. S. alleges, at
tacks Lady Byron. But the Countesf
volume has been before the public mor
than two years, and it contains not on
word calculated or intended to disparag
Lady Byron. Mrs. Stowe's article wa
wholly uncalled for. It is a disgustiD
intrusion. It seems to have been suf
gested by no worthier thought than tbs
it would add to the writer's own impoi
"Mrs. Stowe tells the world that Lad
Byron loved her husband devotedl
throughout all his life, although sept
rated from him, and had no doubt, aftt
his death, that he was a purified angel i
Heaven. If suohlwere her thoughts i
him, if she revered his memory and b
lieved that he was a dweller in the abod<
of the blessed, how can it be suppose
that she would deliberately furnish tl
materials for the publication, after h
death, of an article calculated and d
signed to blast his mighty fame, so fon
ly and passionately cherished by herse!
throughout all the future ages ! He
could she, clinging almost wildly to b
memory, and deeming him a shining st
in the paradise of God, seek to make I
name, one of the loftiest of all time,
scorn, a by-word, und a curse in t
mouths of the generations ! Did she <
these things ?
"We find in Mrs. Stowe's publicati
no explanation of the means by whi
Lady Byron became acquainted with t
revolting secret of her husband's ince
with his sister. Certainly others km
nothing about it, and she was tho ve
one from whom, of all persons th
living, ho must have been the m<
anxious to conceal it. And yet we (
expected to believe that she was the 01
one acquainted with it. If she h
known it, others would probably hn
known it by the same or similar mea
or a thousand dissimilar means, and
would have gono abroad upon tho 'cai
wings' upon which 'immortal scant!
"There is ansther matter in regard
which Lord Byron is certainly calu
niated most infamously. Wo are told
Mrs. Stowe that he made a regular s
persistent effort to convince his wife t
both of them would best promote th
own happiness by indulging in the pl
sures of sensual love wherever tb
tastes and fancies lured them. Th if
too monstrous to be believed for An in?
stant. There is nothing in it in keeping
with the character of Byron. He was a
proud man, aa proud as the Son of the
Morning. He was ready enough to in?
dulge in unlawful loves, but, sooner than
attempt to persuade his wife to do the
same thing, sooner than tolerate her in
a career of guilty voluptuousness, sooner
than let himself be pointed at and
sneered nt as the dishonored husband of
a libidinous woman, he would have in?
voked all the lightnings o? Heaven to
rush into his heart and explode there.
"Mrs. Stowe, as if aware that her ex?
traordinary story in regard to incest
needs all sorts of bolstering, looks
through the poetical works of Byron,
and, without the least authority, assumes
that every passage that can bo tortured
into seeming adaptation to her purpose
was intended by the poet to apply to
himself. This is preposterous. It is
contemptible. Such evidence would
never bo sought except in a case of a
miserable dearth of evidence. Tho im?
morality of Byron's life, and a portion
of his writings, unquestionably deserves
tho severest condemnation; but we are
not willing that the name of tho author
of much of the most glorious poetry in
tho English language, the author of
poetry almost superhuman in its beauty
and sublimity and power, shall bo for?
ever associated in our minds with a crime
from which the soul shrinks with moro
horror than from tho thought of eternal
Mrs. Stowe says that the story of By?
ron's incest has been known for years in
Great Britain, but that no one there has
cared to make it public. Ah, a popula?
tion of 35,000,000 or 40,000,000-and
not a Mrs. Stowe "among them all ! But
do not the comments of the Loudon
Times, which reach ns by the cable, tell
a different story? Would tho 7'imes be
so emphatic if the 6tory of Mrs. Stowe
had been known in England for years?
Hardly, we think.

We keep all our money at home to build i
our impoverished country-every dollar

Its ratio of aseots to liabilities-the true t
of a company's strength, is second to none
