The Unfortunate Marriage of a President's
Daughter to an Englisbmuan.
No bit of society news ever created
greater surprise than the announce
ment of the engagemezm of Miss Nellie
Wrenshall Grant, daughter of the
President of the United States, to Al
gernon Charles Frederiek Sartoris, a
Britislh subject. The prospective
groom was a son of Edward Sartoris,
of Ilampshire, England. Ili- mother
was Adelaide Kemble, daughter o
Charles an'd sister of Fanny IKemble
the actress. The young iman ta :
euctcated in England amhi Geri'uiv and
about 10 caie to the I'nited States
to seek his fortune. In 12, onthe
steamship llussia, while Miss Nellie
was returning from a trip to Europe,
the couple met and formed one of
those unaccountable attachments called
by women "love aflleirs," which termi
nated in courtship and marriage. At
that time Nellie had turned seventeen.
She had enjoyed a life of exceptional
social opportunities and had every
thing to make a mnaiden in her teens
happy. Hier father had been the chief
tain of the powerful armies of the
United States and was the concnerer
of the rebellion. lie then had reached
the pinnacle of power and grandetir,
the seat of the Chief Magistrate of lis
country. As a child of six or ten
years with her mother Nellie often
visited her father's headquarters in the
field. During the movements and
strife of armies she often heard the
thunders of artillery, the rain of ins
ketry and the clash of arms. At the
capital she was the pet of the social
world. She had received distinguished
attentions from old and vonng. Ier
debut was one of the events of the
social history of the Executive Mam
sion. The sons and datghiters of the
most eminent statesmen and officials
were her companions. In her home
she was the idol of her father.
In Washington society Mr. Sartoril
was ouly a figure as the friend of Miss
Grant. le possessed none of the
finer social qualities of young men.
iHe was given to sporting and much
of his time was passed at the m1ari:e
barracks. Ilis conduct there was a
matter of common talk. 1is ill-con
sidered and unusually irresponsible
comments among the officers about
Miss Grant, the lady to whom he was
known to be enzaged, in disparage
mentof her intelligence and education,
often, almost led to chastisement. It
was o6v his relations at the Executive
Mansion which compelled the n to sup
press their indignation and tolerate his

Grant and the President that the at

pointment, to refer to the matter mild
lv. The President, in speaking on the
subject to a friend, in a most feeling
manner expressed his regret that the
object of his daughter's affections was
not an American citizen. "The hum
blest in the land," he s d "rather
than the subjec: of a toreigi State.'
lie tried to dissuade his daughter, n
idolized child, from so mitaken a step.
Her determination was fixed. As the
President said at tile time, "Itather
than -have any' paublic comment I
yiekled consent, though with awoundced
The marriage was the talk of society
for weeks and the event itself was the
most brilliaut ever witnessed within
the stately walls of the Excutive
Mansion. ~It was the seventh aflair' of
the kind wvhich had occurred there.
Miss Todd, a relat ive of Mtrs. Madhi
son, in 1811 was there made the wife~
of John (G, Jackso n, a Iepresent alt ive
ini Congress fromi Virgtinia. 3Mairie
Motnroe, the daunzhter of the P'residentt,
in the Gr-een Lloom. in M1arch, 15:l, a:
the age of seventeen, was married to
her first cousin, Samuel L. Gouver
neur, of hiew Yor-k. It wvas there, ill
1826, that John Q uincy Adams, Jr.,
married his cousin, 3Miss Johnson.
During the administration of' Presi
dent Jackson a daughter of 31ajotr
Lewis, of Nashville, was there mar
ried to M1. Paquot, of 3Mortinique, a:1er
wards M1inister of France to the Uni
ted States, and also 3Miss Esten, the
President's niece, to M1r. Polk, of Tfen
nessee. The next -wedding was the
marriage of President Tyler's daugh
ter, Letitia, to William Waller', of'
Williamsburg, Va., in the East IRoom,
June. 31, 1842. The next was the
marriage of Miss Nellie Grant, and
sinci, during President. Ihaves' admin
istration, Miss Emily Platt to General
Russell Hastings, and last, President
Cleveland to Miss Frances Folsotm.
The wedding of Miss Nellie Grant,
thetk nineteen, and Mr. Sartoris, twen
ty-these, took place in the East IRoom
at 11 a. jn., May ;, 1$74. The tloralI
marriage bell atid decorations were
* superb. The bridesmaids were the
daughters of the most distingtuishied
personages in the lantd. They were
Miss Edith Fish, daughter of the Sec
retary of State; Miss Dessie Conkling,
dau/hter of the Senator fr'otm New
York: Miss Saie Fr'elinghnysen,
daughter of ti:e Senator fronm New
Jersey; Miss Lizzie Porter, daughter
of the Admiral cof the navy ; 3his
} )innie Sherman, daughter of the
General of the army; Miss Annta
B~a,.es, daughter of the Surgeon (Gen
craif the army; Miss Fannie Drexel,
daghter of A. J. Drexel, of Phiha
deliphi~,-sd Miss Maggie Dent, cousin
to the bride, The ceremony was con
ducted with great elegance. The
trousseau had never been excelled at
the capital. The wedding dejeuner'
was in keeping. Fleo:3t two nations
and fiowers adornett the tabl~e. T1he
guests were only the highest oficials
and their .ladies and a very few hti
mate fr'iends. After the dejen::er the
President and Mrs. Grant 'md a few
friends accompanied the bridai couple
by special train to New York. Th'
President gave hi; idolized daughiter
away at the altar and he bade her God
speed on her departure _the next day
for her residence on foreign shor e.
The President was not inseanie to
the fact that a ma~rriagec such as~ hi
de-ughter wvas about to' make mih'h
liable in the future to m-may coolAhca
tions. Certain p~apers were drawn up)
looking to the interests of any' childrec
that might be born of th~e union. These,
were executed between t he Secretary
of State, Mr. Fish, and the Enelisih
Minister, Sir Edward Thornton. The
groom was not possessed of a compe
tence in his own igh~t. The moderate
estates of his widowed nmothcr, upon
whom he lives, are in the south otj
England, near South ampton:. The
daughter of a Pre's'ident cat'ried no
social rank in England and none were
accorded the couple above the mtiddle
class, to which the groom's family be
longed. After twelve veal's this on1ce
favored daughter of America hv~es in
obscurity and pr-aetically neglected and
almost abandoned Uy hecr husband.

six, and Rosemary, about four-are

I.tght Coin to be Stamped.
The following notice was pasted on the
bulletin board of the Sub-Treasury Thurs
:On and after August 1. 18NG, all gold
coin below iega: weight will, under instrue
tions received froi the Secretary of the
'rcasury, be stamped 'light,' as the sati
is presented at the Sub-Treisury."
The necessity for this new rule, as ex
plained at the Sub-Treasury, is this: There
is a law which tixes the coin 'limit of toler
ance -the Ipoint to which coins may be
worn or abraded, and still be worth their
face value-at one-half of 1 per cent.; this
means that when ai gold dollar in the course;
of its utse loses one-half cent of its value in
weight it ceases to be worth $1 as a legal
tender, and is worth only its weight as goli
:nereinmdtise. Until about four years ago
it was a rule of the oflicers at the New-York
Sub-Treasury to stamp all coins outside of
the limit of tolerance with a letter "'L,
signifying that they were of light weight.
But depositors raised an outtcry against
tihe muntilation of national coins, ad an
orde(lr camne from Washington directing the
Sub-Treasury here to qjuit its staimping
business. The result was that though
light weiht coins were once rejected at the
Siib-Treatsury, they still kept coming inia
regular str-eatm. 'rTe same abraded coin
would lbe offered over antd over again four
or tive times during one week. Tnere was
nothinig to dlistinguishi their light weight,
andr often they we're detected only because
the clerks (of the Sub-Treasury, with their
delicate touch, the result of years of prace
tiee', couldl detect the lightndss of weightt.
when to anr ordinary' business man the coin
would havec nothing in its appearance out
of the ordlinary. Often it happened that
in onte bag of gol coins the abrasion of
thte pieces will make a total of $15 or more
under the full-weight value, though thte
loss to each coin is scarcely perceptible.
.A Pickpocket's buccenul PlIen.
A new ex(euse for pocket-picking has
been invented at Berlin. An old gentle
1m1an, possessed of a very ample shtare of
this world's goods, had purloined in the
course of a few months no less titan 7,5
beaut i fully emtbroidered hidies' hiandker
chliefs. HeI was tinally discovered when
pursuing the same occupation Unter den
Liden on the Emperor's last birthday fete.
Together with a number of other gentle
mn of the same profession he appeared
the other day before the magistrate, who
sentteced him to tent dlays' imiprisonmnent.
And here Dr. Friedmatn's (the lawyer) art
steps i. for, while admnitting that htis client
was niot suffering front the convenient ail

the old gemilemnan was suibject to a morbid
