There isa very pretty romance about the
mairiage of "Win. II. Vanderbilt, jr.. to
Miss Alva Smith, the story of which is
often told in nppertendoni.
While at school Miss Smith suddenly
received word that her father had made
an unlucky venture, that his fortune had
gone up in a balloon, and that she and her
sister must, at the end of the term, then
near its close, go at once to the home of
their grandmother, in 'Virginia, there to
remain until their father could summor
them North again.
This was not suited at all to the tastes of
a 'demoiselle conscious of her own attractions,
and she determined to make a venture
on her own account. She borrowed
some money from her teacher, and made
an arrangement with her to go to Richfield
Springs for a few weeks, ?o that when she
appeared there, she had as a duenna, a
well-known inst'tictress, and this piqued
the curiosity of the young men about the
There was a coterie of New York girls
there, a Miss T , daughter of a broker,
MissO , daughter of a rich brewer, and
several others, who knew of the misfortune !
of the Smiths, and who also tried to make
it appear that the young Miss Smith no
longer deserved a place in the ranks of
the iwuveau richc as her father had " gone i
Wm, H. Vanderbilt, jr., came to the
Springs to attend a ball, and the New York
girls were all in aflutter, because each one
desired to capture the son of the Millionaire.
Miss Smith took in the situation at
a glance, but she had nothing to wear, and
she had only forty dollars in her purse.
She proposed "tp Miss T . to buy a
dress, and Miss T , having a big stock
of dresses, and but a small amount of pin
money, was ready to oblige her. She
wasn't however, inclined to part with anything
that would be becoming to Miss
Smith, and accordingly she selected a yellow
silk with a wine spot in front, and
offered to sell that for Miss Smith's $40,
being assured that Miss Smith being more
of a blonde than a brunette, would look
: horrid" in yellow. But Miss Smith paid
the price, and the fair dealer in secondhand
clothing chuckled over the bargain
Her pleasure was changed to chagrin,
that evening, when Miss Smith appeared
upon the ball-room floor, a queen of beauty
and that yellow, too. Instead of putting
white upon her 6he had made her complexion
brown, and having borrowed a lace
mantilla from her teacher, and a big black
fan, she came out the picture of a bewitching
senorita. Her coy glaccs shot into the
She tossed the soft ends of the mantilla
over her shoulder as she strolled the piazza,
and used; that fan most bewitchingly.
The New York girls stood aghast, and Miss
T , shed a tear over the loss of her yellow
silk, and felt that she had been cheated,
for she never thought that the dress
looked so well.
The result was that Vanderbilt fell desperately
in love, pressed his suit, became
all the more ardent because of the lad v's
studied hesitancy, and was the happiest
young millionaire anywhere, when he
gained a kiss, and the privilege of putting
on the tlio linger of senoritaa diamond
Mrs. Vanderbilt at once visited Richfield
Spring, was charmed with her prospective
daughter-in-law, and invited her to go and
spend the summer with her. The smart
young girl, however, pleaded that she had
a dear sweet grandmamma in Virginia, to
whom she owed a duty visit, and she
must go there first .
Thither she went and taking account of
stock, improved her wardrobe, as a smart
girl with a little money only can, and then
she accepted the'invitation of her prospective
mother-in-law. She confided t her
the story of the bitterness of the fashion"
able New York girls, who were so anxious
to got her expected husband, arid the result,
was that the mother had her prids
touched, and she at once cut tho.TJfrftnd
O's, much to the consternation of the
Well, all went well. The millionaire
married the pretty girl of the yellow silk
and the black lace mantilla, and they aro

Henry Clay to Col. James Taylor.
One of the most interesting contributions
to the Historical Society is a scrap
book of autograph letters and other man;
uscripts, presented by Mrs. Thomas L.
Jones. Among the curiosities is the following
letter from Mr. Clay to Gen. James
Taylor, by which it will be seen that the
old system of electioneering for of lice was
in vogue then as now. Mr. Clay was then
twenty-three years of age. We have not
examined the journals to find out whether
or not he was elected Secretary of the
Senate, but it may bo comforting to the
late sticessful candidates for that place to
know that six vears later Mr. Clay was
elected to the United States Senate. The
letter is a beautiful specimen of
being in a large and rounder hand
than characterized Mr. Clay's handwriting
later, but still marked by the same peculiar
neatness and finish. It is the only
autograph of Mr. Clay's in which his full
name is signed, his usual signature being
II. Clav :
Lexington, 2Gth May, 1800.
Dear Sir B. Thurston, Esq., declining
to offer at the next session of the Assembly
for clership of the.Senate, I have determined
to become a candidate for that
office. Not having the pleasure of a personal
acquaintance with Mr. Sandford, the
the Senator of your county, I take the liberty,
upon the" score of my acquaintance
with you, to request that you will make
make'ine known to him.
I am, dear sir, your most obediently,
James Taylor. Esq.
Newport, Campbell county, Ky.
In July last, George Sands, a well todo
farmer living near Milan, hio, took home
$300, and, handing it to his wife, requested
her to take care of it. She, with the
thoughtfulness of the average housewife,
considered that the straw bed-tick would
be about as safe a hiding place as she
could find for the wealth". Accordingly
she placed the roll of bills among the straw.
The money not being needed for any purpose,
it was forgotten, until several weeks
after the house had been cleaned, when
Mr. Sands inquired of his wife if she had
t'at money. The thought came to her at
once that she had emptied that straw bed
in the orchard, and, of course, the roll of
bills had been dumped out too. A visit
to the orchard showed that the swine and
poultry had been very industrious there,
and ten and twenty-dollar bills were found
scattered by the winds' and torn by the
aforesaid farm stock. Careful search
brought back about $230, leaving $70 as
the price of the carelessness. Mr. Sands
does not put his money in strawticks any
Miss Sophronhv. W'ADDrjiiswoimi,
aged 35, was reading the fashion notes,
and when she struck the paragraph,
" Babies are fashionable this season,"
she fainted dead away and remained unconscious
iU'toen minutes. It was all
the fault of the intelligent compositor.
The item should have read: "Bubtes
are on able this season." Something
of a difference, you will observe,
though both are dear little things.
A woman who carried around milk in
Paris said a naive thing the other day.
One of the cooks to whom she brought
milk looked into the can and remarked,
with surprise : " Why, there is actually
nothing there but water 1" The woman,
having' satisfied herself of the truth of
the statement, said : " Well, if I didn't
forget to put iu the milk 1"
