Mrs. Sallio Ward Down-.
It was stated yesterday that Mrs. Sal
lie Ward Downs, the greatest belle of
the South in ante-belluin days, is lying
critically ill in Louisville, Ky. Her
physician gives but little hope ol her
recovery, as she is sullering from a com?
plication of diseases, in addition to be
iug well along in years. Mrs. Downs
is the daughter of the late Robert
Ward, one of the wealthiest of the
Louisiana planters of fifty years ago.
lie made his home in Cleveland and
dispensed a regal hospitality. His old?
est daughter, Sallie Ward, became fa?
mous for her beauty, wit and daring, as
a girl. Before she was sixteen years
old she was a great helle and the toast
of all Louisville and New Orleans
beaux. Hi r father's home became fa?
mous for the number and splendor of
the entertainments given there. On
one bull over ?3,000 was spent for vio?
lets fur the drawing room. Sallie Ward
was married to Higelow Lawrence, of j
Huston, while very young. The mar?
riage was not happy, and a divorce
court freed the pair. Miss Ward was
afterward married to Dr. Hunt, of Lou?
isville, who died a short lime after the
marriage. Her third husband was A'ene
Armstrong, also of Louisville, who also
died. A lew years ago she startled so?
ciety pleasantly by the announcement
that she would marry Mr. George F.
Downs, a rich retired merchant. Mr.
Downs had been one of her early lov?
ers. The wedding was a very quiet
one. and the pair have always lived
-imply but elegantly. Her reputation
as a beauty made her a well-known fig?
ure in Cleveland, and her society was
sought everywhere she went. Hir
house was always the gathering place
of distinguished men and brilliant
women, of which she was the center.
Her drawing rooms were probably the
nearest approach to a salon this coun?
try ever saw.
Woman'-; TRUE KINDLINESS.?
Among all nations, women are ever
inclined to he cheerful and modest.
They do not hesitate, like man, to per?
form a hospitable or geuerous action :
nut haughty, nor arrogant, nor super?
cilious but full of courtesy and affec?
tion ; industrious, economical, ingeni?
ous ; more virtuous, and performing
more good actions than man. One never
addresses himself in the language of
decency ami friendship to a woman,
whether civilized or savage, without
receiving a decent and friendly answer.
In wandering over the barren plains of j
inhospitable Denmark, through honest
Sweden, frozen Lapland, rude and
churlish Finland, unprincipled Russia
and the widespread regions of the wan?
dering Tartar, if hungry, dry, cold, wet,
or sick, woman is ever and uniformly
so Iriendly.
