"Kobinson Crusoe's Money," n patnpb.
let by David A. Wells, Is a very readable
production, It traces the history of
money and proves the superiority of coin
to paper. It takes n country that has
been at war, exhibits It Issuing bluebacks,
tells how they came to bo considered as
better than gold, recites the story of their
evil effects, and then says: "Tho
Islanders came to their senses. They
'began to sec that there was a real dltTer
'euce between substance and shadow,
promise and performance, and they
returned to the practice of the former
'generation, and used siibitancc money
Instead of shadow money." Very well.
Hut how did the Islauders icturn Irom
the use of shadow money to the nsu of
eubtauco money ? This Is what Wells
thould have, told us ; but he did not.
Most people-all but the Friends or ilu

THE FORREST CONTROVERSY.
Dluirle OToiior's 'llicury ol IMtiln
-irr-(i-s JlllUeull.v uilli Ills Vtlle
The controversy between Mr. and Mrs
Forrest, as I now view it, was a very ex
traordinary one. Mr. Forrest possessed
great talents, auu, unless his acts in lliat
controversy be made u subject of ceinure
he has k-lt no blemish upon his name
He labored diligently as an actor, and was
eminently successful. Though capable,
as we have seen, of great generosity, he
was always extremely economical- The
sprlrlt which guided linn In this was
proved In his dying hour. 11 seems he
nan nevoid inimcil tlirougli lllc lo an
object whlrti many may deem most laud
able. He aimed al establishing, on tin
most judicious scale, an institution
which should nllord to unfortunate ami
decayed members ol his profession an
aylum in their need, and ulilHi shoti d
also perietuatv the memory of his ov.u
name ami virtues.
He married Catherine Sinclair when
she was hut 10 years ol ag-. Sneaking
ol her "grace and beauty,' the only wit
ness examined to the point said : "nho
was to me peifuetlon. She was the most
beautiful vision I ever taw." Until their
uiilorlitnalu separation, she wus uni
formly dutliul as one who deemed a will.
bound to 'obey.'' She was ri'Miuttfiil
ami aU'ectlonato In her demeanor to Mr.
Forrest; she was pi udentand economical
In her expenses, keeping and tendering,
as required by him. exact accounts of
them. She made hU theatrical ward
robes ; she made long Journeys for ami
with him, ami she constantly and dili
gently laboied to serve him. She was
thu light of his hoii'e. Ity lit r accom
plishments and her ladylike carriage in
tho presence of his friends and visitors
sho gratified Ids pride Immeasurably.
When the separation took place (lhlii.)
her beauty, though perhaps changed to a
more sedate mold, was undiminished ;
and that he then loved her ami hud the
most absolute eonildeiico In her purity. I
have always llrmly believed. Whv he

state. Some year or two before tho seiia
nratlon, the project of the asylum for tic
cayed actor was entered upon. Thy
couple agreed to erect a suitable build
lug 011 the banks of the Hudson, to use It
us a dwelling houso during their lives,
and then leave It for tho Actors' Home,
with the reslduo of Mr. FormU's fortune
as an endowment. This Involved the no
tion ofa palatial residence, costing a largo
sum for tho house and f iirnituru at tho out
Bet. It would ncccssltato a considerable

Hrst expenditure. The . devotion
of his whole time lo labor ns an
Itinerant theatrical star would scarcely
have produced a sullleicnt Incomo prop
erly to maintain 'I'onthlll Castle," with
Its queenly mltrcs. Mrs. Forrest
thought not or opentf. She thought ol
little but executing the wishes of her hus
band. Probably she was quite incapable
ofconsldcilng the pecuniary question,
and, unfortunatclv,lir husband did not
give It duo rcileelfnn. The separation oc
curred just at the moment when this
I'onthlll cliternrl-e had reached a stage
which caused Mr. lorret to perceive- Its
probablo ellect upon his fortune, and be
dreary future In which its completion
would necessarily involve him. Ills em
tio was in the highway ol travel ; It had
attracted great attention; and how to re
cede was a dllllciiit problem. Accus

unthinking which changes to scorn on Its
hero's failure In anythh'S- he shrank from
tho Idea that, In popular parlance, "l ont
hlll Castle" should change Its name to
Forrest's Folly ; and Tor want ot a better
contrivance, lie determined to have a
quarrel with his "if", lor ome private
cause not to be explained. The breaking
up or his family would of course, nllord
a reason for rellii'iui-hlng lis rural resi
dence; and deeming his wile subservient
to his pleasure in all things, he supposed
that she would submit to this vagary,
and that, utter he had gotten rid of the
castle and a few months had elapsed,
theru could be a m.ike-up and all would
be well. lint. a might liavu been ex
peeled, this singular contrivance tailed;
one tni-tnhc led to another, mid tho Judi
cial controversy In question resulted, it,
in till' Judgement on tho evidence, I have
done any wrong to Mr. Forrest, such Is
not inv ol'fei t. I Imagine it to be Just ;
nor will it bo easy to reach any result
