'During the demolition of some old
houses in Brook Street, London, England, a
collection of newspapers, periodicals, etc.,
of the dates 1765-70, was discovered among
a quantity of lumber, and disposed of as
"waste" at one of the shops in the neigh
borhood. Among the packages thus sold
a MS, was found, and on examination a
dramatic poem in blank verse was brought
to light, numbering about 800 lines, and
nertect, with the exception of the lirst few
pages, which, however, apparently only
contained the title, and possibly dedication.
The poem is signed with the capital C of
trie eaxon aipnaoei, ana it is now ueueveu
t a t.t; s
that it is irom the pen of the unfortunate
Chatterton. who committed suicide m a
house in Brook Street in 1770. The poem
deals with love and revenge, is laid in the
second Charles's days, and abounds in
many striking passages. The MS. is now
in the hands of Lord Houghton, who is ot
omnion. with Dean maniey, air. win-
burne, and other men of letters, that the
MS. is genuine. Arrangements are being
made for its publication at an early date."

Berlioz' Love Romance
Berlioz was present ays London
Society, at the first representation of
"Hamlet" at tho Odeon, and at onco
conceived for Henriotto Smtthson what
he calls "a mortal love." His own,
words best describe the impression made:
"The effect of her prodigious talent, or
rather of her dramatic genius, on my
imagination and my heart was only
comparable to tho complete upsetting
caused by tho poet of whom she was tho
worthy interpreter. Next day "Romeo
and Juliet" was on tho bill. From the
third act until tho end, scarcely breath
ing, as if a band of iron wero compress
ing my heart I said to myself with en
tire conviction, I am a lost man!' It
should bo added that I did not then
know a word of English, and had only
got a glimpso of Skakspeare through
Letourneur's misty translation."
To get a nearer view of tho grande
tragedienne, he entered tho theatro
during a rohearsal. Romeo In tho tomb,
overwhelmed with despair, was carry
ing Juliot in his arms. Berlioz, after a
glance at tho Shakspearean group,
screamed out, wrung his hands, mid ran
away. Juliet saw, heard, and took
fright tolling tho other actors to have a
caro of that gentleman with tho wicked
looking eyes. Not a promising begin
ning for an ardent lover! Common
sense peoplo will be inclined to remark:
"Genius to madness closoly is nllied."
But tho favor of tho Paris public is far
from stable. Miss Smith went out of
fashion as fast as she came in. Count
ing on tho constancy of tho Parisians'
enthusiasm, sho had undertaken tho
management of au English theatre, and
rapidly experienced a facilis descensus
toward ruin, besides which, sho broko
her leg Mllo. Marsbo haved admirably
on that occasion and limping Juliets
do not draw. Nothwithstanding which
impediments Hector got presented to
Henriette and married her, in spite of
her family's violent opposition. On his
part he was obliged to obtain his parents'
consent according to French law, by
summations respeducuses -that is, by
legal compulsion. On thoir "wedding
day all tho brido possessed was debts,
and tho prospect of not being able to
act again, in consequence of her acci
dont Tho bridegroom had throe hun
dred francs, lent by his friend Gonnot,

1 have soon wolves show more bold
ness in the pursuit of dogs their favo
rite fcod, according to my experience
than on any other occasion. Sotters
and retrievers aro frequently snapped
up within a hundred yards of the sports
man, and in broad daylight when
shooting in thick forest; and wolves
will prowl rouud the villages at night,
and come right into small towns after
bowling puppies. Tho peasants seldom
show fear ol them, and an old woman I
know ran out once, in the lightest of
garments on a bitterly cold night only
armed with a pieco of tin and a stick
with which she struck it shouting loud
ly to drive off three marauders who
howled under her window, whither they
had come in the hope of finding her
dogs outside. Somo watch-dogs, how
ever know thoir cnomios, ana dofond
thomsolvos most bravely, and I saw a
big monTol Newfoundland who showed
honorable scars gained in sanguinary
fights with wolves. One tine morning
I met a young wolf trotting down tha
high road in such a peaceful, Inoffensive
manner, that I took him lor a large dog,
and so lost my chance of a shot by not
getting behind covert In time,
