A Levantine Prince.
In October last, a foreigner of
Qriontal appearance,- arrived in
Marseilles by tho packet from Alex
ander. He went to the Grand Ho
tel, whero ha gave his name, as
Trinco Kalimaki, and asked for tho
bcst.suiteof apartmen.tin the house.
The nam of Kalimaki being well
knoyn to the landlord, as that of
piie of the best families in Turkey,
the stranger though ho had no re
V'nuo, and had but scant luggage,
was installed as the most distingu
ished guest of tho Grand Hotel in
the handsome set of rooms which
shortly before had been occupied
by the Emperor of Russia. The
next morning the Prince, left his
card at thq.Turkish Consulate,' and
the VitQ-Jonsul, in. the absence of
tjie Consul-Geueral, returned the
visit iii person. . The Princo stated
at the hotel that his fathor had an
immense .cstato in Turkey in the
midst of which was a navigable lake
entirely his private property, on
the bosom of which large steam
boats wro. daily plying. , His ob
ject in- coming to France was to
buy horses for his father's frieul,
Ali Pasha, and he asked many ques
tions as to tho best means of procur
ing fine horses. He wa3 introduc
ed,: to. M. . Carbonnel, the largest
horse dearler in the south of Prance
and who has stables at Marseilles,
Avignon, and Lyons. T'-o Prince,
whose taste in horseflesh was ex
tremely diflicult to please, found
none of tho horses in Marseilles
good enough for him, and M. Car-
borinel wrote to Ins stud groom at
Lyons, desiring him to send the
lest horsos ho had by rail to Avig
i)6ii,whithcr Princo Kalimaki would
go to look at . them. Tho Priuce
went there' accordingly, and after a
most severe inspection, seletcd sev
eral animals'atlugh prices. . On his
return to Marseilles he wrote a tel
egraphic' dispatch addressed to Ali
Pasha, Constantinople, stating tiio
number, and, the price. of tho- horses
lie had bought ' and desiring. the
Pasha to remit iuhds . immediately
to' pay for them. Thisdispatch was
taken to the telegraph office by
one of the clerks of tho Iiotpl. . On
the strength,' of. it the manager of
the hotel, anxious , to secure the
custom of the Ka imaki family, not
only continued without misgivings
to'serye the .rrince with the best
of every thing, but lent, him four
thousand francs, for which he had
occasion wliilo.tho' remittance was
coming, .caroonnev . tho jiiorse

Prince was pleaso to tako;a5 much

inWan
nnai- eoen great iy siruoK wiui
tliQ beauty of a young person wh o
accompanied by two nuns, rode in
the samo railway carriage, with him
and got -out at an intermediate
station. As soon as he had settled
tho purchase of tho horsc3 with M.
Carborihcl, he resolved to find out
the young lady. A Tunc, who was
acting as his secretary, suggested
that the euro of the nearest village
to the station at which'the fair one
alighted would .probably know
something of the. nuns who 'were
with her, and jn this, way a' clue to
her name and residence might bb
fotind. "'Thd'i'dea was perfectly suc
cessful, 1 Thaeu'ro on being applied
to, recognized at p'nee the yoiin.'j
person dcscriU'd. lie.-1 said she
was tho sister of the mayor ,of a
neighboring parish, . that she" had
come on the day tho Prince- saw
her to play the organ in his church.
She was an exemplary girl, of good
family, aud very nice fortune, tin d
lie, for his part, thought her quite
worthy to be a prineesii'. ;,
The family was communicated
with through .the excellent euro;
The offer of the Prince was accepted
by the lady's broflie on her behalf
and an appointment was made at
Marseilles to sigh tho m'&rihgo con
tract. The Prince, intoxicated with
the happiness that ' awaited "him, at
once made his intended briile some
presents, and vohhteered' to' pgn
two bills of tori thousand francs as
an installment of t,iie' settlement, lie'
intended to make up'nh 'her.' ! The
lady's brotiier, on arriving, at Mar
seilles, called at; thd Turkish Cpn-'
sulale, showed tho two bills, . 'and
asked whether tho' :signaturo was
good. The answer was that noth
ing whatever was known' at the
Consulate' about tho Irince, that
his visit had been returned with
out inquiry, and that was all; but as
to tho validity of tho bills, 'tho par
ties taking them must ' decide en
tirely on their own judgment.
They did decide at onco .that the
match was not an eligible one, and
left Marseilles precipitately, having
first' returned the ' presents. This
mishap put ah end to the. princely
career of the guest at' the Grand
Hotel. Confidence was 'sudlen'ly
withdrawn from hini ; bills poured
in all at once; and he was constrain
ed to confess that ho had no re
sources' in the world : When he ap
peared the other day at the bar of
the Correction police1 on a charge
of obtaining mbiiey under false
pretences, it was proved that he
was a Levantine, named Tanc,a,' a
subject of the Hay of Tunis, and
that he had lately ' co'mo but of
prison at Cairo. The false Prince
was sentenced to two year's imprisonment.'
A Levantine Prince. The Congress--So Called.
We presume no sane man would
undertako, seriously, to prove that
the present body which meets from
day to day in 'tho Capitol, at Wash
ington, is the Congress of "the Uni
ted States of America." "The Con
gress of the United Stales of Amer
ica," according to the Constitution
of government under which we are
supposed to live' must 'consist of
"two Senators from each State."
Surely this body does not answer to
(that description.', The same Con
stitution; also declares that caeh
State Bha.ll be entitled to a certain
number of representatives. But
this body does not answer to,, that
description. What, then, is this
concern which presumes , to legis
late, for the entire peoplo of this
country, without deigning to con
form to. the requirements of. .the
Constitution? Evidently it. is. not
a Congress. . "Vhateverit may be,
