Tac Exiles5 of 'aiJadenk.
W" By an inconceivable fatality, by an
obstinate caprice of fashion, Wisba
den hainever been treated according
to its deserts. Situated one league
from the Rhine, between Magence
and Frankfort, Wishaden is a delight
ful town, and far surpasses Baden,
its fortunate rival. But B3aden is
nearer France, and this neighbour
- hood notes its fortune. The Russian
Lord3, who are not permitted to
come to us, approach cur frontiers as
near as possible : for want of better,
they find at Baden a reflection and
an echo of France ; Baden, then,
will enjoy its reputation until it may
please the Emperor of Rissia to for
bid this sojourn to his noble shores.
If you would find at once, and at
your pleasure, company and retire
mnent, a crowd and solitude, noise
and silence, go to Wisbaden. Elsc
where the whirlwind carries you
away with it, pleasures pursue you,
joyous voices incessantly raound in
your cars ; but there you are allowed
to be alone, fashion exercises no
tyranny, and'you ieed only partake
of the pleasures and entertaitinments
which are offered you, as you Feel
disposed. Wisbaden is wonderfully
adapted for those who have a book to
a write, or a pain of the soul to heal :
there you find, side by side with the
liveliest diversions, the necessarv
shelter for profound meditations, and
1 f-r mel ucholy reTeries.
The charm that Wisbaden posses
'es 'had kept in its bosom for s.ime
time, four young perions exiled from
their m , ~ eo try,. ach fou!l
there from tIlim a'n a friendl y
voice ; he could. coverse or' hi
country with a travelling fellow-coun
tryman, and that was a consolation
whuich must have been dear and pre
cious to those who had lost everything
else. A comnmon misfortune had
brought together the four exiles, an1d
they had at once made unitual dis
closures to each other in coniidence,
with regard to their :nisfortunes.
One of them, Baron Ladislas de
L-, was Captain in the service of
a sovereign whon we shall not name.
His misfortunes had their origin in a
The countess Alexina Medianoff,
widow of a general-oflicer, a young
lady of the highest distinction andl of
the greatest beauty, was obliged to
leave her province and cone to pros
ecute in the Capital a laW-suit in
whidh the greatest part of her fortume
was involved. Resolved to live in
retirement, the countess dwelt in a
little house between the city nd the
country, at the extremity of a su
burb. This house had been left to
her by an aunt. Although so well
concealed, and so attentive to keep
herself removed from the world, the
countess could not, however, escape
the looks of all ; and she soon in
spired two passions, both of them
dangerous, one for lhim who expei
enced it, the other for her who was
the object of it. The two adorer-s of
the countess wero Captain~ Ladislas,
who met her at church, and the soy
creign of thme country, one of the most
powerful Princes of Eur'opc, who met
The young Captain, possessing lit
tle but his cloak and his swoi-d, kepat
himself in the modest arid timid r
serve of a love which hopes but little.
I.. e watched the hour-s when the coun
'toss was in the habit of going to the
-houso of her men of business ; lie fojl
howed her at a distance ; in oirder to
approach and to speak to her, lhe
lavished more science and skilful
combinations thani would have been
reqjuisite to gain a victory at the head
of an army.
As we might sup~pose, the Prince
was not so dhiscreet as the ofiier. lie
set to wvork in a different manner, and
as a man who had never founid re
649 sistance. Disdaining the delicate
approaches of a sentimental strategy,
in his advances lie made use only of
tho cavalier courtesy, and the confi
(lent amid daring gallantry, which suit
a crownod head ; but his advances
were very ill received. Tfhen sur
pieand vexation irritated the pas
ioofthe mounarch ; lhe threwv him
u-.,f into a thousand extravagances;
he exposed hiis anger and his desires,
and ho onded by putting inito play
the abuses of p~owver, and tho violent
means which he ciAdd dispose of.
For instance, tle countess lhst her
law-suit. Tho Forms and tho duties
ofjistice were outrageously violated
on this occasion ; the Princo had
written the decree, tle judges pro.
Ii this matter, tle Prince had madd
use of a sufliciently plausible reason
ing : he had said to hiiself with an
I shall more easily succeed in
conquering tie rebel, when she shall
have been re~hiced to poverty."
But this time the tuoniarch had de
ceived hinself. The vii tue of thle
countess did not allow itself to be de
jected by mnisfortime, and when She
was off1ered a splenldid 'alace, full of
luxury and of riches, she replied, "I
prefer ay humble house in the su
The bull womded in the flank by
the sword of the picador is iot more
l1irious than was tle l'rince, when) lie
felt tle goadinlg sever ity of this re
pi ly. lie swore to break through all
obstacles, and to eaploy, if necessary,
his entire ..bsolute lower to impose
a favorable teruination on the adven
ture so unsuccessfully commenced.
One evening, the countess liul
one to dine in tile city : she had left
h1om1e at four o'clock, and was return
iin, at imtidnight. I1er carriage tra
versed the deserted suburb without
accident. In front of her house ex
tenled a little park, enclosed by an
iroln railing, was open that evening,
contrary to custom. The carriage

Clhestmauit trees. & st'plied ; instead of
