with the triumphs of Lady Cttrzxon formerly
Mks I.itcr of Chicago, and American pride has
Uvkeil nn approving nod to the honors that

India. Vet this approbation nud congratula
tion of her xiiccexxes springs from the fact that
her sympathies do not lie wholly in her aristo
cratic claxs, Imt that this American heart,
though adorned with titles that create an tut
natural distinction, still lives in a hroadcr fit-Id
of usefulness, one that is l.irRe eunuch to in
