The following cotnes to us from an au
thentic aourcc, and may bo taken us fur
nishing tho clue, ti rsl, to tho attempt to
aocure the purchase of San Domingo by
this government, and, following its fail
ure, tue now roalired tchemo of tho pur
chaso of Samana bay aud its appurte
nances by an association of American
capitalists. This last, without careful
hatching by tbo public, may provo only
a roundabout and mbro costly method of
complete realization of tho Dm schema
against tho treasury of the United Stutes.
From tbo statements following it seems
that tbo necessities of Bitez, as principal,
have for some titno boon coupled with tlio
purpose of certain bilton English specula
tors to get back their investments. With
this Introduction, we give place to tho fol

A PORTRAIT OF J1AEZ.
Like every other novelist, I must nsk
my readers to look back a lov years, say
to 1EC5 and 18C0, aud to mako tho ac
quaintance of certain individuals in tho
good city of Bordeaux; his habiliments
denote not exactly poverty, but tho next
stage to it; bis skin is brown enough to
prove a decided dab of tho tar brush, but.
on tin other hand, his bearing is erect, of
tue racamm mgiit, ligut gray uuir, and
nlout, say, fifty years of ago. This,
gcntlo reader, is Scnor Baez, at that time
ei-president of tho republic of Santo Do
HIS OBJECT IK VISITI.VO TRANCE
That of raising n loan wherewith to
drive his enemy, Cubrul, from whence ho
himself had only been ousted a short time
previously. For years that lovoly island,
n perfect paradise by nature, hai beou
turned into a species of boor gardon or
stamping-ground for thoso two uieu and
their uduuronts ; first one, then the other,
would obtain tho ascendancy, and which
ever gained tho day immediately set to
work to make ull ho could by plunder in
ns snort a space of time as possible, for
the leauro of power never lasted long with
either of them.
Months passed away, and poor Baez was
fast beginning to realizo the sad fact that
raislni: a loan was not quito such an easy
oporation as his sanguine Imagination had
pictured, aud that the French government
cared not ono straw whethor bo or Cubrul
governed his beloved ropublic, whon ono
lucky day be fell in with the true- hero of
this work, one Edwurd Herzberg by nsmo.
Uerzberg was but a clerk in a mercantile
house iu Bordeaux, but ho was ono of
these clever fellows who, out of a very
lender salary, managed to live in what
may bo called a very pleasant st"lo.
Offensive and defensive, against society In
general, was entered into, und as iiaez's
means (never at any tlmo pluthortic) wore
now beginning to wax "small, and beauti
fully less," be became the guest of his
newly-found friend Herzberg.
Again months pastod away, and still
dame fortune was as obdurate as over, un
til, one morning, a ray of hope shot into
poor uaez s Heart, on ttie receipt of u let
ter from certain of his adherents in St.
Thomas, who felt certain of ousttni; his
adversary, Cabral. "Ho wont, hu saw, ho
conquered," and again In his presidential
chair, be and bis cabinet forwarded the
necessary documents to Herzbori:. who

power to raise a loan on the Paris course
of 8,760,000 francs.
Herzberg changed tho scone of tho opor
atluns to Paris, and doubtless did his level
best to get the money, but tho French
2su wouldn't even nibble, so much more
make a lively dain at bis hook. Hope
was fast civinc wav to doanulr. ivk.n
with a few of bis remaining sous, bo one
day sought relief from a very annoying
appetite in tbo cafo where he mot with
one Simeon Webstor. an Englishman
now Simoon delighted In the Imaginary
title of 'financial agent," and a casual ad
mission of this tact at once brought out
all Hcrzberg's troubles; Simoon listened,
smiled (a pitying smile), a smile that

Now, whatever Herzborg might havo
been, certain It is, llartmont was a beggar,
not a sou in bis po:ket. Simeon did the
magnificent, paid bis passage, took him to
his house In tne suburbs of London, fed
clothed, lodged and phvsicod him for
everal months, at the end of which tlmo
both Simeon and tbo concoisionnre boan

game In London as In Paris. Gradually
Harlmont had his oyes opened to tho
disagreeable fact that Simeon knew as
much about lU dutlos of a financial
agent as hn did of differential calculi, so
It was decided to call In tho assistance of
a newly-formed friend, ono llcgloy, who,
ns ho had tho privilngo of lilting his hnt
on raro occasions, on 'change, to ono or
twp of tho moncd world, was looked
up to by the worthy pair as
THE MAN "TO DO IT."
Begloy strutted his short porlod, nav
even succeeded so fur, strungo to my, as
to tnuuco llartmont to become his part

duly established at No. 0 Great St. Hel

been In the possession of ono John Ogle, n
shlpbrokcr, (who, 1 limit not omit to say,
was a very great crony of Bcgloy's). Of
course, Ogle was soon as conversant with
the details of tho proposed loan as nnv of
mem, uiiu iiariinoni soon lounu Hint tbu

finding no other road open
