OVER THE BARS. HOW POTTRIDGE SPOILT HIS LUCK.
Mr. Thomas l'ottridgu, of Sin all
lioroiigh, had been renowned in li is na
tive town for his constant run of luck,
no that nt tho age of forty ho was reck
oned the "warmest" nuin there an
alderman who had been twice Mayor
of his city, a church-warden and a Very
popular character among the fuir sex
ny reason of his being a bacholor. One
or two things more only were wanted
to complete his happiness namely, a
good wife, a nice little estate in tho
country and thq honor of knighthood.
Mr. I'ottridge wished to become Sir
Thomas Tottridge. Having long cher
ished Uiis idea, and resolved, Indeed,
that ,e would not propose for the hand
of pretty Miss Lucy Pott, tho banker's
daughter, until ho could make her a
ladyship, Mr. Pottridge chtlod by think
ing that ho could best secure his object
by causing himself to bo re-elected
Mayor and arranging if possible that
II. K. U. tho Prince of Wales should
pay a visit to Sniallborough during thq
term of his offlo. Intent upon this
Bchomo, Mr. Pottridgc camo up to town
to call upon Lord Ueaconstield. Lord
IJeaconsficld hearkened kindly to tho
grocer's prayer. Sniallborough was
about to inaugurate some public baths,
tho first establishment of the kind ever
seen in tho town, and nothing could
bo more suitable than that tho hoir of
Thorno should preside over the cere
monial. "Truly," said tho Premier
politely when he had heard the Alder
man speak, "the cleanliness of the
people must always be a matter of in
teresting concern to thoso who are
brought into relations with them. I
shall bo happy to take iler Majesty's
commands on the ahem! public
spirited proposal which you have laid
" If you can manage it, my Lord, I
should be glad if tho visit could take
place some time after the 9th of Novem
ber next, for I shall be Mayor then and
able to see that tho reception given is a
"Ah, quite so!" answered Lord Bea
constield, dropping his eye-glass, for he
had studied Mr. Pottridgo through it
and knew tho man by heart,
Loaving Whitehall, Mr. Pottridge
sauntered toward llegent street, and as
he walked along life seemed rosy to
him because of Miss Dott. He began
to stare into the shop windows, admir
ing pretty things which ho was tempted
to buy for his lovo. He was turning
over this fancy and fumbling wistfully
at the pocket where his check-book lav.
when suddenly ho beheld through the
window a curious sight. An elegantly.
Iressed lady was seated at the counter
examining pieces of Brussels lace. The
shopman averted his head for an in
stant, and she deftly whipped up a
yard of tho costly texture and trans
ferred it to her pocket. Tho shopman
spread over the counter a number of
square, ilat boxes containing handker
chiefs, and once more turnod away.
Again tho lady's deft hand went to
work, and a couplo of handkerchiefs
found their way under her cloak. "Now
that woman must have capacious pock
ets," soliloquized tho astonished Mr.
Pottridgo. "She's a cunning thief,
anyhow, and I'll just step in and warn
He hesitated a moment, and whilo he
hovered about tho doorway tho lady
came out escorted by an obsequious
commissionaire with medals on his
breast. A footman, one of a row bask
ing on a bench like oysters, rose and
Bignaled to the coachman of a hand
Boniely appointed brougham, who at
onco drove forward. Evidently this
lady was not an ordinary thief. She
was a tall, dark person of about thirty,
superbly dressed and very handsome.
Perceiving Mr. Pottridge and seeing his
glance fixed on her as she waited for
her carriage she eyed him with aristo
cratic superciliousness and thereby set
tled her fato, for Smallborough's alder
man, who could not brook the disdain
of a shoplifter, hurriod into the mer
cer's and explained what had hap
pened, speaking in so excited a voice
that a number of customers heard hiin.
Great commotion was caused by his
announcement, and tho shopman who
had served her was quickly lired by the
idea that ho had let himself be out
witted. Darting out of the shop he ac
costed the thief as she was stepping
into her carriage: " Will you come
back, if you please? There is some
" What mistake?" askod she, turn
ing round with a Hash in her eyes. But
she grew ashy palo.
" Uorne back, please," repeated tho
shopman, a pushing young man, whose
tuilv uiubo xiuiu uuiuuon.
A small crowd had already collected
and tho lady was obliged to retrace her
steps; but as she was about to enter the
shop she slapped her hand into her
pocket and let a pieco of lace fall onto
tho pavement. "No, ma'am, that
won't do," cried Mr. Pottridge, seizing
the thief's wrist. "You're going to
pretend those things fell by accident
into the folds of your dress; we know
that trick." And otliciously acting as
searcher, he plunged his hand into tho
pocket despite the lady's struggles and
drew out a second piece of lace, throe
cambrio handkerchiefs, two pairs of
new gloves, one pair of silk Btockings
and a lady's silk cravat. "Well, I
never!" exclaimed the pushing shop
man, and there was a murmur among
tho bystanders, including tho lady's
own footman, who looked like a pow
dered Jigure of consternation.
" How dare you!" screamed the lady,
purple with rago and inortitication as
sho glared at Mr. Pottridge; "I'll
prosecute you for assault, f told the
shopman here that I meant to buy thoso
thiugs. Let tho bill be sent to my ad
dress; I'm Mrs. Pounceforth-Keaiie."
" Ah, I dessay," responded the shop
man, " but I'm just going to give you
into custody ;' and running to tho door,
he beckoned to a blue-coated member
of the lorce.
One of the partners of the tirm, a
gray, civil-spoken man, who had been
nuiuiiionod from his study, now came
forward; ttiui he was at lirst disposed
to rebuke the haste of his shopman, but
it was too !te. The policeman had al
ready entered, and all the shopmen Und
shop-girls, the customers and the desul
tory people crowding around the door,
were Umlaut in chorusing that tho thief
should bo mado an cxnmplo of. Mrs.
Pounceforth-Koano, seeing public opin
ion so dead against her, uttered a howl
and fell swooning to the floor.
"Novor mind that, wu'U mvm Wttso
her," said tho pnlfcrntan, facetiously,
for ho did not vet know that ho had to
deal with a lady who kept a brougham.
" Tho magistrate is sitting now at Marl
borough streot; wo' 11 just go there at
oneo and have hor chargod. '
This arrangement was acceded to,
and in a few minutes tho lady and po
liceman (who had got abashed by this
tinio from finding himself seated on tho
silk cushions of a carriage) wore riding
to tho police court in Mrs. Pounecforth
Knano's own vehicle, whilo Mr. Pott
ridge, tho shopman, and tho mercer
followed on foot to glvo evidence.
Ono would think that In acaxo where
tho ofl'enso was flagrant and tho testi
mony so clear, tho magistrate might
have sentenced tho defendant straight
off to six months' imprisonment, at'd,
indeed, had tho thief been rt purson of
tho lower order, It Would probably
have bnei huf fate to bo convicted suni-ni-rlly.
But it turned out that Pounce-forth-Keane
was the real namo of the
elegant shoplifter, whose husband was
a person moving, as reporters say, " in
tho best ranks of society." Mr. Pounco-forth-Keano
was sent for, and arrived
breathless in a hansom from one of the
best clubs in Pall Mall. At the sight of
him his wife, who had been locked up
for an hour in a police cell, wept pro
fusely, and Mr. P.-K. was himself much
agitated. He asked for a remand, and
tendered bail, saying ho should pro
duce medical evidence to tho cllect that
his wifo had lately suffered severely in
health. Tho magistrate a timid man,
who hrtd grown-up daughters to marry,
and was terribly afraid of society
stammered out something like an apol
ogy, and readily aoccded to the applica
tion for bail. So very soon Mrs. Pounco-forth-Koano
tottered out of court weep
ing like a victim, on her husband's arm;
and Mr. Pottridgo walked away with
tho shopman and tho civil-spoken mer
cer. All thrco were crestfallen, as if
t'.wy hail committed a blunder. " This
will bo a very bad all'air for me,"
grumbled tho lr.oroer. " I would havo
lost a hundred yards of laeo sooner
than appear in court against a lady like
" Well, but she's a thief," criod Mr.
Pottridge, rousing himself and speak
ing with spirit. " What harm can she
or her friends do you?"
" Are you quite sum you saw her
steal the things?" asked the mercer,
gloomily. " Besides, supposing she
did put them in her pocket, she says
that she told my shopman to send her
" I'm hanged if she did," ejaculated
tho shopman, Indignantly.
" Silence, sir," answered tho mercer,
with a stern frown. " If this be really
a case of theft, you are self-condemned
for you ought to have kept your eyes
about j'ou. For some time past I havo
noticed that you havo been very negli
gent in business."
The shopman collapsed as for Mr.
Pottridge, he trudged back to his hotel,
feeling half inclined to go and ask Lord
Beaconsficld what ho ought to do. Tho
case had been adjourned for a week,
so ho traveled back to Sniallborough
in the evening, and by tho time ho
reached his native town ho had worked
himself up into a state of contempt for
tho mercer and the metropolitan sti
pendiary, who seemed to draw a dis
tinction between well-dressed and ill
dressed plunderers. Meeting Mr.
Bungs, the brewer, near the railwav
station, ho gave him an account of
what happened, and was hearkened to
with sympathy until he mentioned tho
name of Pounceforth-Keane; then Mr.
Bungs pursed up his lips. " Why,
bless me, that's the cousin of Lord
Keynsolo, brother-in-law of our Lord
"What difference does that make?"
stammered Mr. Pottridge, like a man
who feels less sure of his ground.
" O, nothing, except that I don't see
why a lady of that sort should commit
robberies," res ponded Mr. Bungs.
Further down the street Mr. Pott
ridge, who was rubbing his pate in
rather violent perplexity, encountered
Mr. Dott, the banker, whoso daughter
Lucy ho loved. " Pounceforth-Keane!"
exclaimed Mr. Dott, as soon as he had
heard tho grocer's story. Why, Lord
Keynsolo, his cousin bank's with us."
" Well, but como, Dott," retorted
Mr. Pottridge, impatiently, " is that a
reason why Mrs. rounceforth-Keano
shouldn't bo a dishonest jade?"
" No, but I think the whole thing im-
Frobablo," answered the banker, "and
confess I should be sorry if anything
unpleasant happened to Lord Keyn
Mr. Pottridge was not in a very good
humor whon he went to bed that nisrht.
A magistrate himself, he knew what
shifts are often made to withdraw well
connected offenders from justice, and so
far as tie was concerned he would havo
cared little had an appeal been made to
him, act misencoraiam, to acknowledge
that he had, perhaps, been mistaken in
fancying that he saw Mrs. P.-K. pocket
some lace and handkerchiefs. But,
Mr. Pottridgo could not bear to be
pooh-poohed at or threatened with un
pleasant consequences if he did his
duty. He was an alderman, a grocer
wit1! a blameless conscience, and he
feared no man. Fooling that his char
acter for veracity and common sense
was at stake, ho resolved to give his
evidence against the wile of Lord Keyn
solo' s cousin with no more hesitation
than if she were the commonest jail
bird. From that date, however, things be
gan to go wrong somehow with Mr.
Pottridgo. It seemed as though his
long luck had forsaken him. On the
morrow of his adventure in London,
Mr. Chuckleworth, the principal soli
citor in the town, who was Lord Keyn
sole's legal adviser, passed him in the
street without nodding, and later in the
aay Mrs. u. sent a still note, begging
that Mr. Pottridgo should send in his
bill, and intimating that she would
thenceforth purchase her groceries at
another house. Now tho Chuckleworths
had always been excellent customers of
This was bad enough, but worse was
to follow. Next day some inspectors of
weights and measures arrived at the
alderman's shop and found a piece of
lard sticking under his scales. They
declared they should'make a report of
tho fact. Scarcely had they gone, leav
ing the grocer speechless with confu
sion, than two well-dressed strangers
entered and bought some tea, brown
sugar, cocoa, pepper, and a pot of
mustard; after which they stated that
they wero public analysts, who were
going to examine the Quality of theso
goods. They examined them, in truth,
bo fast, that two day later Mr. Pott
ridge received a summons to answer a
charge of putting birch twis-s in his
tea, sand in his sugar, turuierlo in his
mustard, clay in his cocoa, etc. Mr.
Pottridgo shrugged his shoulders at
lirst, taking it for granted that the
uimigu wouiu ue uismisseu uy nis uroin
er magistrates, Messrs. Dott. Bumrs &
Co., but before the caso came on for
hearing. It fortuitously transpired that
Mr. Potiridge had beeu up to London
interviewing Lord Beaconstleld for the
purposes we know, and this made the
other aldermen furious. Mr. Bungs.
the brewer, was particularly angry, and
declared that Pottridge was a traitor,
insomuch as the poor grocer, instead of
having a friendly bunch to judge him,
fouud a very stern one.
" I am sorry for you, Mr. Pottridgo,"
said Mr. Dott, who sat as chairman,
" but men in your position should set
tin cxnmplo. Von are lined M on padi
etrtint, with cost,s. Total, AllO."
Ill-starred Pottridge! Ho left tho
f ottrt politically and socially dono for,
for he could no longer hope to bo re
elected Mayor nor to marry Miss Dott.
Ho should have, moroovor, to resign his
aldermanship, and his porional charac
ter, as well as that of his tea, sugar and
mustard, was ruined.
So ruined was Mr. Pottridgo that
when ho went to London to givo evi
dence against Mrs. Pounceforth-Keano
tho first question asked him by tho
counsel for tho defenso a blustering
Old Bailey barrister was, " I believe
you havo just been convicted of selling
adulterated goods and at false weight?"
" Let mo explain," stammered poor
" No explanations, sir. Give mo a
plain answer, yes or no!"
" Yes, thon.'
" Well, then, if you are liable to make
mistakes about your weights, you may
err in other things."
"Porhaps," replied the grocer, des
porately, " I may havo been mistaken
in thinking this lady was a thief. I
havo had enough bother about tho
" You ought to bo ashamed of your
flippant conduct, sir," cried the coun
sel harshly, and tho wretched grocer
hobbled out of tho witnoss-box feeling
Very mean indeed. After this confes
sion of possiblo error on tho part of tho
chief witness, the caso against Mrs.
Pounceforth-Keane was, of course, dis
missed, and Mr. Pottridgo slunk out of
court with a magisterial reprimand
ringing in Ins ears, lo conclude this
little story one has only to add that
when II. ii. II. the Princo of Wales
graciously went to open the baths at
Sniallborough it was Mr. Bungs who
was Mayor and eventually got knighted

The New York Democratic State Conven

after perfecting a permanent organlzttlon by

reaMemblltiK of the Convention on the 11th
tho following platform was adopted:

lation designed to prevent the presence of armed
soldiers and the employment of paid F'ederal Su
lcrvisors and Marshals at the polls, and the use
of the public funds for this purpose, is denounced
by the Democracy of the State of New York.
Fiteventh. And as the. foundation of all liberty
and prosMrity, privileges and rights, under our
Government, we shall continue to uphold the
system of uutrammeled suffrage absolutely free
irom F'ltleral force or supervision.
The Chairman then announced that nomina
tions for Governor were in order. The name
of Lucius Kohlnson was 3rst presented by an
Albany delegate, aud was received with
cheers, hooting and hisses, while Ironical
laughter greeted the atatemeut that tbe Gov
ernor personally was opposed to the continua
tion of political life. A Kings County dele
gate seconded the nomination of Kohlnson,
Baying; "We will give him from 12,000 to
1H,000 majority. Crlesfromthegullery: "You
haven't got It, and can't get lt!"j Kings
County Yes, we have, and" will record It."
A Tammany delegate nominated (Jen. Henry
W. Blocum, and another Tammany delegate,
Gen. William F. (Baldy) Smith, seconded the
nomination. General Siocum'g name wag re
ceived with tremendous cheering.
Assemblyman Qrady, a Tammany delegate,
denounced Kohlnson, and said under no cir
cumstances will Tammany support his nomina
tion If it is made.
After speeches had been made In eulogy of
and denunciation of liobluson, a delegate from
Saratoga named Cowen declared himself an
early and consistent supporter of Kohlnson.
He was a Tlldeu man aud a Robinson man, but
no niau would ever be allowed to come be
tween him and tbe Democratic party, and as it
was perfectly apparent here that If Governor
Kohlnson was nominated he would not be
elected, be was not for his reuomlnatlon.
When he heard of this disagreement in New
York, he said that be would take the delega
tion by the throat and make them do their
dutv. "lie bad said the same thing of tbe Albany
delegation; he had become convinced tint
LiUclus Kohlnson cannot be elected, lie said
the gentlutnau presiding bere (Mr Jacobs)
would make a good enough Governor for him.
He then nominated John C. Jacobs for Gov
ernor, and the applause and cheering was very
enthusiastic. He asked the Secretary to put
tue question upon nis nomination oy acclama
tion. There was great confusion and calls for
the question, and nearly every member stood
upon his feet, swinging his hat. The Secre
tary put the question, and there was almost
a unanimous response of aye, with long
continued cheering. The Secretary declared
John C. Jacobs nominated for tbe olllce of
Governor, and there was continued cheering,
repeated over and over, followed by scenes of
Indescribable confusion long eontlmied. A
dozen men then rose to move for recess, and
it was a long time nerore they could be heard.
When quiet was" restored, Mr. Jacobs, Cbalr-
inan, said be regretted that the Secretary had
assumed the duties of the chair before he had
authorized htm to do so. If he had been asked
concerning the nomination which had beeu
inane ne would nave respectfully declined.
Brooks Insisted ta to the point of an order
that the Chair should recognize the nronrletv
of Ihe action taken, and moved a recess for
David Dudley Field took the floor and In
quired if there was uot danger that, In the ex
citement of passion, they might lue sight of
their duties to the Democracy who were be
hind them. Governor Kohlnson was his life
long friend, but It was Indubitable that, right
or wrong, be had lost the coutldc nee of a por
tion of the Democracy. Let them unite on
some man who can unite the party aud lead
them to success.
Mr. Peckhain, of Albany, moved that the
roll be called and that each delegate name his
choice for Governor. The Chair said, If there
was no otij ictlon, he would consider Mr. feck
ham's mollou adopted, and so It was declared
Mr. Wagstaff, Tammany, called attention to
the fact that there was a question pending on
motion made just before Mr. Cowen nomi
nated Mr. Jacobs, to apMiiut a committee to
ncvise a plan oy wuicu uaruiony could be se
cured. Mr. Peekham moved to lay that motion on
the table, and on this the yeas and nays were
Faulkner (Robinson) here took the chair.
Cowen claimed that the convention had al
ready nominated a candidate for Governor.
aud moved that the convention proceed to
nominate a Lieutenant-Governor.
The Chair said the Chairman had decided
the question of the nomination of Governor,
and he, occupying the chair temporarily,
would not change that decision. I Cries of
No, No. I
Peckuian made a point of order that the
Convention had already ordered the roll-call
on another motion.
The Chair corrected himself, and said the
pending motion was to lay on the table, which
was not debatable. The roll was then called
on tbe motion to table tbe uiottou for a com
mittee of one from each county, to be ap
pointed by the Chair, to consult unou the alt'
uatlon, and present to the Convention a single
name for Governor.
The motion was carried M to 155. Mr.
Peckhain renewed the motion to call the roll
on the nomination of a candidate for Gov
ernor and moved the previous question, but
before the previous queatiou was seconded a
mol lou to take a recess wan made and secluded
and obtained precedence. The motion for re
cess was defeated year DM!, nays !i!0. Mr.
Peckpaui renewed bis motion to procured to
the nomination for Governor and culled the
previous quektiou, which waa promptly
eeouded. Cowen again moved tbe nomina
tion of Jacobs by acclamation. The Chair
tUid that the question before the conven
tion was railing the roll for nomination.
Dorshelmer, who is Lieutenant-Governor of
the State here rofo snd said ho hail a proposi
tion to make. It was that the New York dele
gation now withdraw from tho convention
and that, the convention take a recess to such
time as It shall see fit for consultation i and he
was authorized to say the delegates from
New York would not obtrudo themselves on
the convention again.
I'eckham replied that so far as he know the
Democracy of tbe county wero ready now to
Vote, and all they desired was a fair count.
Fred P. Alcott, of Albany, was here nom
inated for Governor. After a brief scene of
confusion the Chairman ordered the roll to be
called on tho candidate for Governor.
The roll call had not proceeded when
Augustus Schell rose, recited the earnest
fidelity of the city Dernocricy In all times In
the past, tn sunshine and storm, and an
nounced that under no circumstances would
that Democracy support Lucius Kohlnson,
though they would the remainder of tho tick
et that should be nominated here, and that
their representatives In thlsconvention would
now retire. The New York delegation then
retired amid mingled cheers, hissings and
f:rectlngs and cries of "Good bye, boys; good
ive, Dorshelmer I" tho whole convention
rising to their feet and making a scene of
great confusion and excitement, lasting ten
minutes. When order was restored the call
of the roll proceeded.
Two delegates from Cayuga County, when
rilled, d'clined to vote nt present on the
ground that so many delegates had left tho
contention. Ambrose Liiughlin, of Rochester,
when bis name was called, said his delegation
was Instructed to vote for a new ticket. Ac
cordingly he had done his best to obey this In
struction by advocating the nomination of
flloeum, but now, In view of the unprecedented
action of the New York City delegates In
withdrawing from the convention to which
they hail sought admission, he would vote for
Tho ballot resulted as follows:

So the Chairman declared Lucius Kohlnson
to be the nominee for Governor. Mr. Cowen
moved that the nomination he mado unani
mous. Carried, with but two or three objec
tions. A recess was then ordered.
Hefore the convention was called to order
In the evening Col. J. R. Fellows whs loudly

Secretary of State, Allen C. Beach ; for Comp
troller, Fred. P. O. Scott; for State Treasurer,
James .YlcKtn; for State Kngincer, Horatio
Seymour, Jr. ; for Attorney-General, A. Schoon
A resolution was adopted refusing to Tam
many In future a preference over any other
Democratic organization in New York City by
the party of the State.
Adjourned tine die.
The Tammany Delegates
upon retiring from the convention met In
Shakespeare H:ill and the auditorium was
soon tilled. As Dorshelmer, Schell, Kcllvand
others entered they were received with cheers
and great enthusiasm. Samuel G. Courtney,
who succeeded Daniel S. Dickinson In the of
fice of the United States District Attorney at
New York, called this second convention to
order, saying that the Representatives of sev
enty thousand voters in New York and twenty
thousand voters In Kings County have met
here to night to vindicate their manhood, and
arraigned Governor Robinson as one owned by
the great trickster of Cipher Alley. David
Dudley Field was chosen Chairman. lie said
this convention was the assembly of the
Democrats of New York City and other
parts of the State, who sympathize jflth
them In their work of the past two da)s.
This delegation, although called the Tammany
delegation, jot It had been declared by the
State Convention the only regular delegation
from that city. No Democratic ticket had
ever been elected or could be elected

Four secretaries were appointed, two from

Mr. Dorshelmer, from me Committee on
Plan of Action, reported that the committee
recommended, first, that the convention now
proceed to nominate a candidate for Gov
ernor; second, that a committee of fifteen be
appointed by the Cbir, and announce in
the future, which shall be constituted
with power, in reference to the remain
der of the ticket, as may seem to them
proper. He then said, In nominating a candi
date to be supported for Governor, it became
nroner to sneak of his aualirieitions for office.
He nominated John Kelly, of New York, and
went on to eulogize him a a public olncial.
He closed by proposing that John Kelly be

was promptly seconded with the expression
that it Joun Kelly should be elected New Y'ork

capable or more faithful Governor. The
nomination of Kelly for Governor was made

with three times three cheers. He thanked
the convention for the compliment paid him.
He regarded It aa a compliment comingyrom
the heart and not from the Hp. He did not
expect to be elected Governor, but he did ex
pect to defeat a man who had commit ted great
outrages upon the people .of New Y'ork. He
expected to convince Governor Robinson.
after he has retired to private life, that he hag
committed a great wrong upon the people.
not only of New Y'ork, but of the State. He
had surrounded himself with a bad class of
people who were usfnir hiin for bad purposes.
He hoped he would be able to see tbe great
wrong he perpetrated the 17th of March last
when he resorted to plausof the midnight as

of fifteen to decide whetbar the full ticket
should be nominated was adopted and the

The Angel of Castle Thunder.
The burning of the famous Confeder
ate military prison at Richmond, Castle
Thunder, has called up a multitude of
reminiscences of the building and its
twin, Libby Prison. Major liatlen, a
former warden of Castle Thunder, said
to a newspaper correspondent on
Wednesday: The burning of Castle
Thunder reminds me of a sad and ro
mantic episode interwoven with tho
history of that famous prison. It is the
story of the " Angel of Castle Thun
der. ' The friends and sweethearts of
tho prisoners were constantly writing
to them. I have witnessed many heart
rending scenes in the prison. In this
prison all persons suspected of sympa
thy with the Union were confined, as
well as Confederate prisoners. The
meeting and separation between a
mother and her child, between a sweet
heart and her lover, as they would
cling to each other, and, with tears and
sobs, separate, perhaps never to meet
again, was truly sad and distressing.
It was upon one of these occasions that
I noticed a woman whose history I aft
erward learned, und as it was a remark
able one I will give it to you. She
was beautiful, tall, slender, ladylike
and spirituelle-looking. She attracted
one's attention at first sight. She called
herself Emma St. Clair. Her features
were finely chiseled, after the Grecian
stylo. Her eyes were largo, lustrous
aud of melting bluo, her form well pro
portioned, lithe and supple, and her
pale delicacy of complexion, and her
frail appearance produced the impres
sion that sho would soon bo the victim
of that fell destroyer, consumption.
She called to see a young prisoner who
was her lover, to whom she sent sump
tuous faro every day. Unco, whilo on
a visit to hiin, she had a severe hemor
rhage, and fainted. She was too weak
to be sent away, and she was properly
cared for at the prison. The attending
physician had her taken to a room
where she received proper nursing and
medical caro until she recovered. She
was a courtesan, and her lover a Louis
iana soldier, who came to Virginia at
the outbreak of the war. She was of
Creole extraction, and came from New
Orleans to Richmond, whore she might
be near him and see hiin every now
and then. She had $2,600 in gold when
she arrived here, and she determined to
devote hor own forces aud her money
to soothe aud alleviate tho sullurings of
our wounded soldiers. She became a
nurse in Hjrd Island Hospital, and there
for a long time she employed herself In
nursing tho eick and woundod. On ono
occasion a young soldier from North
Carolina, badly woundod, was placed
under her caro. Sho nursed him care
fully, but in snite of all that could bo
dono for him It became evident that he
must die. Ho was the only son of
wealthy parents who doted on him.
Whon he was told that ho could not live
long, ho called tho beautiful nurso to his
bedside and told hor ho had one request
to make, and that was that sho would
not let him bo placed in an unmarked
grave. Sho promised, and ho died
nappy. Sho kept hor promiso. Ho was
buried with pomp. A long line of car
riages followed hiin to his grave Sho
boro all tho expenses. In a fow days
thereafter tho lather and mother ap
peared, having heard that thoir only
son had been wounded. Tho father
went to tho hospital, where ho learned
his son had died, and there ho was re
ferred to Miss St. Clair, who gavo him
all the particulars of his death and fu
neral. He and his wife were deeply
grieved at tho loss of their son, but
their griel was greatly softened by tho
contemplation of tho generous, unselfish
conduct of his kind nurse, and they ex
pressed to her their appreciation of her
kindness in no measured terms.
They did more. After making In
quiries about her, and learning her past
nisiory ami true status, wncn they re
turned to Richmond again, Bfter carry
ing the remains of their son homo to be
buriod, they sought her out and said to
her: "We havo come to make a propo
sition to you, which wo sincerely wish
you to accept. We want you to go
home with us and be our daughter. We
will adopt you as such. We are wealthy,
wo havo no children, and nobody will
have any rightto complain of our con
duct. We make this proposal after
careful thought and consideration. Wo
are acquainted with your past history.
ana know what is the opinion ol the
world in respect to ono in your situa
tion, but we believe that any woman
who has acted so noblv and penerouslv
as you have done can be reclaimed, and,
forgetting your past life, we earnestly
desire to take you to our hearts
and our homo and adopt you as
our daughter. Will you come? ' Tho
beautiful nurse evinced great agitation.
Her bosom heaved, and tears flowed
from her eyes, and then, amid hor sob
sho declined the offer, saying to accept
it " would, while beneficial to me, be
doing an injury to you. I do not de
serve such generosity, and my services
to your poor boy were not given with
expectation of reward, but to gratify
my own feelings. I know that you are
sincere in your belief that you would
ignore and forget my past life, and that
you would treat me as if I were, in
fact, your daughter, but the world, and
your friends and acquaintances, would
not let you do it. A ban is upon me;
society calls me an outcast, no matter
what trials, temptations and solicita
tion I may have encountered. I have
fallen, and there is an unabridged gulf
between ma and society forever. You
would rescue me, and your offer will be
a source of happiness to me during all
tho few remaining years I have to live,
but as much as I would like to go with
you, I can not wrong you by accepting
your offer. My doom is fixed, I regret
alas, too late, to say, and knowing that
I shall never be forgiven by man, I
must look alone to Him who is mercy's
self to pardon mo hereafter.'
The old Confederate Major, as he
reached this part of his reminiscence,
drew his big bandana and wiped his
eyes, saying to the correspondent:
" You see, I witnessed that scene, and
I tell you it was the saddest I ever
knew. The old gentleman and his
wife could not alter tho determination
of the beautiful girl. Finally they said:
' Is there nothing we can do for you to
show our appreciation of your kindness
to our son? " She said: Yes; I ask that
you will bestow some of your means in
purchasing delicacies for the wounded
soldiers and prisoners of both armies.'
They did so, and hundreds of Confed
erate and Union soldiers, tossing upon
their sick beds, blessed the outcast wom
an who gave them rare wines and cor
dials and delicacies out of tbe liberal
means at her disposal, and so she be
came known as the Angel of Castle
Thunder,' and at early morn and amid
the night shadows she was to be seen
flitting between Castle Thunder and
Libby Prison. At the evacuation of
the armies sho disappeared and has
never been heard of since."
An Old Curiosity Shop.
The eccentricities of the late Amasa
G. Porter were often remarked during
his life, but they were not fully realized
until the other day, when tho hoarded
treasures of his attic were discovered.
In furtherance of the settlement of the
estate, which has been left to his neph
ews, tho household property at the
house corner of Crown and Temple
streets was recently sold at auction.
Tho announcement of the sale drew a
large crowd to the spot, and never was
a more remarkable collection oi prop
erty seen. In the upper iloor of the
building were stored old books, um
brella frames, dilapidated musical in
struments, dentists and carpenters
tools, superannuated stoves, clocks,
andirons and cooking utensils, in
numerable keys, type, files, minerals,
baskets and curious boxes of days of
yore. Throughout the entire house
were evidences of its owner's mania.
which seems to have been that money
would loso its value, and that the only
security was in a collection of goods
and chattels, ana ouus ana enas which
might bo bartered. In tho cellar was
old iron and steel by tho ton, parts of
wagons, machinery and wheelbarrows,
and many large and ponderous tools,
besides a score of steelyards. A pile of
old paint-pots adorned ono corner of
the cellar, and near by were more than
a hundred casks of nails, some of them
new, somo old, besides spikes, augers,
pieces of wagon-tires, barrel-hoops, old
water-buckets and pails, and bottles to
melt and make a glass roof almost
largo enough to cover the .premises
Theso things wero systematically col
lected, and showed the work of a life
Everything had to be sold to fulfill
the terms of tho settlement ol the es
tate, aud much of this curious property
was valueless. Even tho old family
liiblo was sold, and one or two ancient
engravings, on one of which was im
printed the title "Two Cherubims,"
with " liartolozzi. Sculp: Printed by
Molteno in London, 1798." The furni
tare in all the rooms was antique and
curious, and all who visited the prem
ises united in the opinion that never
was Biich a collection sold at auction in
this, if, indeed, in any city. A'ew

Flavoring Butter. A plan for im
proving the aroma of butter in use in
many parts of Switzerland noted for
good milk and fine butler, is as follows:
1'ho milk as soon as it is drawn, and
while yet warm, is - filtered through a
sprig of washed fir tips, the stem of
which is inserted loosely and upright in
the hole of the funnel. The milk de
posits hairs, skins, clots or gelatinous
sliminess on the leaves; it has imparted
to it a most agreeable odor, and docs
not readily turn sour. A fresh sprig
should be used each time.

Clover Pasture. Clover pasture
when young and growing rapidly is
generally considered too full of water,
compelling animals to eat too much
duik in oruer to ouiain suiucieut uuii i
raent, expanding their stomachs and
crowding upon the space allotted to the
lungs and other viscera. Clover is un
doubtedly less valuable for young past
uro than for any other purpose to which
it is usually devoted, but if allowed
to blossom and then cut, wilted and fed
in the stable there is scarcely another
forage crop that will yieia so much
food per acre for stock, and farmers
are fast finding it out. One acre of
clover cut and fed in this way will keep
a given number of animals as long and
well as two acres pastured, ana stock
will not be obliged to expend nearly as
much of the force acquired in fighting
