Vv5 THE WIFE'S REvTNQE. ; '
A SCENE IN A PARISIAN BALL
. . . ROOM. . .
Two years since a young, beautiful and
rich lady of Bologna, married the descen
dant of ft family well known to history,
whose illustrious name was all the fortune
which ,the bridegroom 'possessed; tut the
generous Bologncsc, in the ardor . of her
attachment, overlooked the poverty of her
lover, in the hope and expectation of a prop,
ef return to her disinterested love.
For a year all was happiness; but this
summer, being on an excursion to Venice,
they formed an acquaintance with a fuiiii
lyifioin Paris. A young widow of that
family, very gay, beautiful and fascinating,
and possessing ft profusion of golden tres
ses which might have dono honor to the
head of an Eve. or Orphelia, attracted the
attention Marquis Delia R . Her
other charms might have failed, but her
beautiful ringlets were irresistible, and fur
getting the attraction ofhis young and love
ly Marchess, whose rich dark hair Would
haVo vjed with a Capello, a Cornaro, or
even a Juliet of the Capulofs, he became
eujnared by the fair head of the lively Par
After a month, the family, including
the gay widow, returned to Paris, and in
another little month, the Marquis received
a prcssiug call to Home upon business of
importance; and leaving his lady to re
turn to Milan at her leisure, he took post
with nil possible expedition, where ho had
buon for a fortnight, before the neglected
inarchesa, who had returned home, discov
ered tho singular orror in the compass, by
which her husband's course to Rome had
been diverted, by means of a friendly let
ter apprising her that her husband was in
cessant in attentions to the blondest of
beauties, and her constant escort to the
Theatre Italian, and t ther places of amuse
ment. The lady called her brother to her coun
sels, and they concluded to follow the Mar
quis to Paris without delay. Previous to
her departure, the lady was busy in ma
king researches of a siugulsr nature. The
trouLled times of Italy during its intestine
broils had furnished traditions and memor
ies of melancholy catastropbics by steel
poison, and not few were tho modes by
which 6ure and sudden death m ight be in
flicted. I myself was shown at Ravenna, iu '40,
by the present Countess of Boissy, (La
Ouiciola of Lord Byron,) on? of these
poignards with blades of crystal, manufac
tured at the Lagunian Island of Murano,
in tho cavity of which was concealed a sub
tle poison, and which, upon the Hade be
ing broken in the body, became diffused
in the blood of tho victim and caused cer
- In tho archives of the jealous lady were
notices of an heir-loom, in form of a ring,
concealed in the setting of which was a
small gold globe, and in the interior of
which was inserted a poison similar in its
effects to prussic acid. This could be borne
in tho mouth without danger, unless crush
ed between the teeth, and then instantdo?th
t' Secure of the valuable jewel, the deser
ted inarchesa arrived at Paris, and was re
ceived into the house of her kind, friend,
married to' a financier of eminence in tho
fcity, and a man of consideration ; and among
many circumstances calculated to disturb
her, she learned that her husband was, the
next Monday, to attend the fair widow to a
ball, to be given at tho houso of a former j
deputy of a Session, which, with many oth
er things, was broken up in 184S.
To this ball her friend consented to ac
company her, and the hour impatiently
expected at length arrived. Robed in
black velvet, with rich laces, which set on
to advantage her clear complexion, -dark
eyes and hair, she was superb she was
daitling. With fire in her eyes, majestic
in her deportment, the haughty beauty
strode through the room, (tho crowd open
ed as she advanced,) and proceded to a
talon lighted by lamps among flowers, and
at some little distance from the orchestra.
There she waited her dreaded rival and her
companion, intending to appear suddenly
before them, confound tho lady, freeze her
inconsistant husband by a glance, and then
. to complete tho ca tastrophe.
Tho ; pair arrived. Taking her friend
by the hand, tho inarchesa arose, putting
into her mouth, at the same time the fatal
ball. The metal is thin, and at tho least
compression of tho teeth the dreadful fluid
would bo ejected, and she would fall a
corpse before the thunder-stricken pair.
Behold this beautiful woman receiving at
tentions with a smile upon her countenance,
aud holding in her mouth the subtile poi
son which was soon to consume her, and
yet with an aspectof apparent satisfaction.
The marquis was waltzing with his beau
tiful blonde." Restraining her emotion, the
mnrchesa chose a station where, in the
turns of tho dance, she would have the
most favorable position to burst upon them,
when t conversation between a neighbor
ing couple attracted her attention.
'Do you ice,"- .aid young man, "the
Maroune de -? ; How elegant sho is
jlits evening !. How beautiful, how anima
ted f Who is that with whom -she is
" An Italian aHonian,'! believe who,
they eoy,' adores hef,- for her1 beautiful
blonde tresses, satiated perhaps," by the
dark haired damsels of the Eternal City "
. "The fair tresses of .the baroniia 1" said
a third onek who had joined the other two
as the conversation began; "truly they are
very charming, but my 'sister, who was in
the same couvent' with her, gays they are
fajso, aud if you examine closely the enor
mous covering, you will perceive it is not
a native to the head." '
At this moment the breathless dancers
halted near tho group. The marquis was
addressing some words to his partner,
which caused his listening wife to think of
the ball she carried in her mouth, while the
baroness , was re-adjusting her dress, and
passing carefully her handover the lack
of her head, as if to be assured that all was
safe in that quarter.
Suddenly a new thought seemed to pos
sess tho injured inarchesa; she chopped
the poison ball frr.m her mouth into her
bosom, rushed upon Her rival from behind,
and seizing her by tho hair detached the
magnificent mass of ringlets from tho cra
nium, aud threw it ou the floor.
The marquis, whoso eyes were for an in
stant diverted from his partner, turned as
she shrieked aloud, with fury in Iris eyes,
prepared to avenge her, and beheld his
mistress, like Sampson of old, shorn of her
conquering tresses, and his superb wife
frowning in all the majesty of an offended
beauty ! What a tableau ! "
The marquis was astounded and stupefi
ed, and the lady, recovering her good tem
per, took him by tho hand and led him
unresisting to the ante-chamber.
"Forgive me," she whispered in his ear,
"for having disarmed my adversary," and
carried him away.
The Wednesday following, the reconciled
couple set out for Milan, the best friends
in the world, and, withal, the most effec
tionate lover. But for tho discomfited
Baroness , sho is a most amiable
personage, and I am in despair that any
one should have torn from her one of our
most pleasing illusion.
Homo and Wife on Saturday Night.
Happy is the man who has a little home
and a little angel in it, of a Saturday night.
A house, no matter how little, provided
it will hold two or so no matter how fur
nished, provided there is hope in it ; let
the wind blow close the curtains !
What if they arc calico or plain without
border or-tassel or anv such thins?
Let the rain come down heap up the
fire. No matter if you haven't a candle
to bless you with, for what a beautiful
light glowing coals make, reddeuiug, cloud
ing, shedding sunset radiance ihrough the
little room just enough to talk by ; not
loud as in the highways ; not rapid as in
tho hurrying world but toftly, slowly,
whispering with pauses between them, for
the storm without, and the thoughts with
in, to fill up.
Then wheol the sofa around before the
J fire ; no matter if the sofa is a settee, un-
cushioued at that ; if so it may be it is just
long enough for two, or say'two and a half,
with two or two and a half in it. How
sweetly the music of silver bells from time
to time, falls on the listening ear then.
How mournfully swells the chimes of the
'days that are no more.'
Under such circumstances, and such a
time, one can get at Icatt sixty-nine and
a half statute miles nearer 'kingdom come,'

Salt for Miich Cows.
During the past year, I have been trying
somo experiments to ascertain the effect of
salt upon the condition of cattle. Since the
first of November, 1851, 1 have kept four
cows of the parr.o age, standing Bide by side
in the same stable, and fed with the same
kind of hay and provender duriug the win
ter, and running in tho same pastures iu
the summer; two of which I fed salt in
their mess, and when not messed, three
times in a week, separate from their food,
while tho other two hao none with this re
sult : Last spring those that had salt iihed
their coats a trifle earlier (about teu days)
than those that had none ; whilo tho latter,
as a general thing, had been .less healthy,
and their hair has lacked that fine, glossy
appearance that tho forulcr exhibits. The
difference is now very plainly preceptable,
aud has been, all through the summer and
fall. The orLain was kept aud churned,
separately, a part of tho time, and tire dia
ry maid avers that the cream from tho milk
of those cows that were Balud, produced
butter in much less time than that of the
o then Dollar SWifoper.
THE JUDGE'S BIO SHIRT..
Tho 6tory goes, that, on a certain s occa
sion, Judgo A j then on a : visit to
Raleigh,' N. 0., Was notorious for leaving
home without tho necessary precaution of
carrying along a second shirt. ', Whilo
here he was invited to atteud a gay and
fashionable party, to be given the following
evening, at the residence of Judge B -
Tho visiting Judgo was terribly perplexed
about a clean shirt for the occasion, and
while resolving in his mind how he should
possess himself of the desired article (in
those d-iys ready-mado shirts were not, as
now, articles of merchandize,) he was cal
led on at his room by Mr. C another
limb of the law, but not a Judge. After
passing the usual compliments, Judge
A remarked : "See hero, Mr, C
I have just been invited to attend a party
to-morrow night, and I haven't' a clean
shirt for tho occasion," hoping, no doubt,
his friend would proffer the loan of one of
his. But being a bit of a wag and relishing
a good joke amazingly, he concluded to
have a little fun, and at the same time
learn his judicial friend a lesson concern
ing his negligent custom. "Oh 1" said he,
"there's no" difficulty about that. I can
have you one made."
"But do you think it can be finished in
time?" said Judge A . .
"No doubt about it. I have a shirt-maker
who is perfectly prompt and reliable,
and I can vouch .or its being ready."
"All right, then, if you'll be sure and
attend to it."
"You may depend on it," said the
J udge's friend. "It shall be here by half
past six to morrow evening."
C , in going home that night cal
led at the lady's and ordered her to go to
S's store, get nine yards of bleached do
mestic's and three yards of linen, and make
a shirt of it forjudge A , and de
liver it at his room on the following even
ing, at half-past six precisely, -and charg
ing her particularly there was to be no dis
appointment, aud rot to deliver soouer or
later than half.past six.
"But Mr. C ," expostulated the
woman, "you mean three shirts, don't
you, out of nine yards?"
"Do as I tell you, Madame.' Dou'tyou
suppose I know what size shirt is required
by my friend?"
Early the next morning the cloth was
procured and the making of the shirt en
tered upon. About six o'clock in the
evening, C , all at'ired, and ready
for the party, called on tho Judge, when
he was saluted on his entrance with
"See h ere, that shirt has not been sent
"Oh !" says C, pulling out his watch,
"it is not time yet, it lacks a quarter to the
time, for I told her to have it here by half
The couple chatted away a while when
presently a timid knock at tho door was
heard. Judge A- jumped to open
it, when a littlo girl asked if that was
Judge A 's room?
Being answered affirmatively, she contin
ued "Here's a shirt Mr. C. told my moth
er to make for you-"
"All right, my nice little Miss," and
straightway began to prepare for donniDg
the much coveted garment, remarking, "it
is well made and handsomely done up' too.
Smart woman that Mrs. C
"Oh ! yes ; I knew bho would not disap
point you iu any respect."
By this time the Judge had commenced
pulling it over him. He pulled, and pul
led, as yard after yard passed, and still
his head was enveloped in tho shirt. He
complained of its size, but his friend told
im he had got it twisted, but to hurry on,
as 'twas ti mo they were at the party.
Again he set himself to tho task, and by
hard struggling got through, finding him
self enshrouded in a shirt five feet long and
four yards broad, covering all over the floor
with its ample drapery ?
"In God's name !" said the Judgo in as
tonishment, "what is this the woman has
sent me?" looking with consternation upon
the monstrous shirt around and beneath
him. "What is it I say?"
It was with much difficulty that C. could
restrain his laughter, but upproaching his
enshirted friend, and pulling the huge col
lar down so that he could sco his face, he
gazed with apparent wonder, and observ
"What a silly, stupid woman 1 I told
her to get just enough to make three shirts;
instead of making three, she has put the
whole nine yards into one shirt! But we
must hurry up and make the best of a bad
bargain, for it is high time we were at the
party this minute. You can push it down
into your trowsers and nobody will bo the
wiser." So at it tho Judge went, his friend
assisting him, as yard after yard was piled
away in his unmentionables, (they didn't
wear tights in those days,) and thus he
went to Judgo B 's party if not the
finest dressed, at least the largest Blurted
gentleman in the crowd. ;
' C. promised never to "blow" on his ju
dicial friend, and kept his word until be
learned that the Judge was compelled to
tell it on himself, for unfortunately he car
ried tho big shirt homo, and Mrs. Judge
wanted to know what tremendous big wo
man's 6-r-ft , that was in the trunk ? He
had to o?t with it ; and it being told by the
Judgo himsolf, Mr. C. felt at liberty" to
tell also ; wbioh he docs sometimes to the
intiuite merriment of all who bear him.

she asks herself, and wouldn't such a din

master be nicer especially, as mother is
sick ? And then, to live iu a whole house,
with not a single crevice for rats to crceP
in at, with no rattling blinds, and creaking
doors, and no horrid chituuies to shake so
when the wind blows ? She thinks, with a
sigh, it would. And the sigh grows heav

She darts into a neighboring alley till the

His little girl! Can it be? She wonders,

she will only take him for a father, better
than those idle, mocking children. She
thinks of her mother, but then this, her

how happens it that Democrats are the
champions of tho new party, in both branch-
