with the bndiant statesman, who en -
listed him in his treasonable schemes
The authorities suspected Nolan as be
ing an accomplice of Burr's, and on
the court-martial the impetuous youth
cried out. in a fit of freury, "D n the
United States ! I wish I may never
hear of the United Staies again."
These words shocked the Revolutionary
officers that formed the Court-martial,
and Nolan was coudemnci to be sent
on board a vessel, where ae was never

to this department.

selves regarding his society. He is to
be exposed to no indignity of any kind,
nor is he ever unnecessarily to be re
minded that he is a prisoner.
"Bat under no circumstances is he

Nolan seems ; to have been passed
from vessel to vessel, and to have re.
mained a prisoner for over sixty years,
and was made the subject of innumer
able traditions, and - palpable Anyths.
He was strictly guarded, and the name
of the United States never mentioned
to him." It is generally supposed, how
ever, that, this myth was originated du
ring the recent war by some highly
imaginative individual who desired to
institute comparison and similes be
tween Nolan and the rebel leaders. Of
course, Nolatit repented of his folly,
and died deeply regretting the? incau

life of imprisonment, which was pro

from interfering in the politics of the
MAN IS TITK IRON MASK.
Within the walls of the Bastile du
ring the reign of Louis XIV., was
enacted the inexplicable mystery, which
has coutinued a mystery to this day,
of the Man in the Iron Mask. When
first heard of, he was confined in the
Marguerite Islands, in the Mediterra
nean, whence he was removed by De
Saint Mars, who was his private gov
ernor, and answerable, it is supposed,
for his safety with his own life, to the
Bastile, where he died, on November
19, 1703, and wa3 buried on the 20th,
in the cemetery of St. Paul, under the
name ofMachiati. No man, except
the governor, so far as is known, ever
saw b.13 face, or heard his voice : two
persons, . to whom he had conveyed
written words, in one case marked up
on a linen shirt, in the other engraved
uu a suvei piute, uiui, niuiuuu auuai-
ent cause, immediately atterwards.
During'his conveyance from the Mar
guerite Lies, De Saint Mars dined at
the same table, and slept in the same
chamber with him, with pistols ever at
hand ready to destroy him, in the case
of an attempt on his part to reveal
himself. In theBasfcile he was waited
on, at table and at Jiioilet, by the
governor, who took charge f and de
stroyed all the linen he "once used.
He was never seen but with a mask of
black vebj?tt, fastened behind his head

THE LAST OF THE STUARTS.
Henrv Benedict Maria Clement Stu
art, Cardinal York, the last male rep
resentative of the Stu-.irt family, was
jfcforn in Rome in ISlio, died in Venice
: in 1807. lie was the younger brother
of the Pretender, Charles Edward, (the
Prince Charley of Scottish song) whom
he wa3 preparing to ail with a body of
French troops assembled at Dunkirk,
when the overthrow of the Jacobites
at Culloden ruined the Stuart cause in
Britain. lie subsequently took orders
in the Roman Catholic Church, and in
1747 was appointed by Benedict XIV .
a Cardinal. On the death of his bro
ther, in 1788, he assumed the title of
King of England as Henry IX., gratia
Dei, non voluntate hominum, as tiie
medal which ho caused to be struck of
the occasion declared. He was subse
quently obliged to take refuge from
xrench invasion in Venice, and during
the last years ot his life was dependent
upon the British Court for means of
subsistence. He was the last male ot
the Stuart family, and with his death
the line became extinct. Its chief
branches in the female line are the
houses of Savoy and Orleans and the
Duke of Modena, all descended from
Henrietta Maria, daughter of Charles
I., of which king the present Duke of
Moaena is the lineal representative,
being thus, but for the act of settle
ment, heir to the crown of England.
There are two families of the name of
Stuart on this continent that claim!
falsely to he the descendants of tho
Stuarts, and if they be the descendants
they cannot be the legitimate lineal re-
presentatives, because tne last male ot
the line died a priest, and was never
changed' their names. One of these j
females resides in Jackson, Mo., and
,the other in Lenoxyille, Canada.

''the suhjoined card of invitation. K
" WHEN THE CAT'S AWAY THE MICE
Mr. CAUDLES compliments to
M.r HENRY PRETTYMAN, and
expects to have the honor of his company
on this joyful
occasion, at halfpast
lt is hard, I think, Mr. Caudle, that
I can't leave home for a day or two,
but the house must be turned into a
tavern: a tavern ? a pothouse? Yes,
I thought you were very anxious that
I should go; I thought you wanted to
get rid of me for somethings, or you
would not have insisted on my staying
at dear mother's all night. You were
afraid I should get cold coming home,
were you? Oh yes, you can be very
tender, you can, Mr. Caudle, when .-'it
suits your own purpose. Yes! and the
world thinks what a good husbandyou
are ! I only wish the world knew you
as well as I do, that's all; but it shall,
some day, I'm determined.
"I'm sure the house will not be
sweet for a month. All the curtains
are poisoned with smoke; and, what's
more, with the filthiest smoke I ever
knew. Take 'em dotcn, thc?i? Yes, it's
all very well for you to say, take 'em
down; but they were only cleaned and
put up a month ago; but a careful
wife's lost upon you, Mr. Caudle.
You ought to have married somebody
who'd have let your house go to wreck
and ruin, as I will for the future.
People who don't care for their fami
lies are better thought of than those
who do; I've long found out that.
"Aud what a condition the carpet's
in! They've taken five pounds out of
it, if a farthing, with their filthy boots,
and I don t know what besides. And
then the smoke in the hearth-rug, and
a large ciuder-hole burnt in it! I nev
er saw such a house in my life! If you
wanted to have a few friends, why
couldn't you invite 'cm when your
wife's at home, like any other man?
not have 'em sueaking in, likeajstt of
housebreakers, directly a woman turns
her back. They must be pretty gen
tlemen, they must; mean fellows, that
are afraid to face a woman! Ila ! dnd
you call yourselves the lords of the
creatiou! 1 should only like to See what
would be come of the creation, if you
were left to yourselves! A pretty pick
le creation would be in very soon!
" You must all have been in a nice
condition? What do you say? You took
nothing? Took nothing, didn't yon?
I'm sure there's such a regiment of
empty bottles, I haven't had the heart
to couat 'cm. And punch, too! you
must have punch! There's a hundred
half-lemons in the kitchen, if there's
one; for Susan, like a good girl, kept
'em to show 'em me. No, sir; Susan
shan't leave the houscl What do you
say? She hasno right to tell talcs and
you WILL be master of your oicn house?
Will you? If you doQ t alter, Mr. Cau
dle, you'll soon have no house to be
master of. A whole loaf of sugar did
I leave in the cupboard, and now there
isn't as much as would fill a tea-cup.
Do you suppose I'm to find sugar for
punch for fifty men? What da you
siy? There wasn't fifty? That's no
matter; the more shame for 'em, sir.
I'm sure they drunk enough fo'r fifty.
Do you suppose out of my housekeep
ing money JL'em to find sugar for punch
for all the world? Yon don't ash me?
Don't you ask me? You do; you know
you do: for if I only want a shilling
extra, the house is in a blaze. And
yet a whole loaf of sugar can you throw
away upon No, 1 won t be still; and
I won't let you go to sleep. If you'd
got to bed at a proper hour last night,
you wouldn't have been so sleepy now.
ou can sit up iialf the night with a
pack of people who don't carej for you,
and your poor wife can't get in a word!
"And here s that China image that
I had when I was married I wouldn't

any farmer make the experiment, and
he will find it as interesting as it is
useful, and both interesting and use

actual produce of his farm. Let
everything, therefore, that can be

not be brought to an exact standard
be estimated as if he himself were
about to sell or purchase it. Let
him likewise, as near as possible,
measure the ground on which hd
plants,- the quantity of seed which
he uses, and the manure which he
applies. The labor of doing this is
nothing compared with tho satisfaction
of having done it, and the benefits'
which must arise from it. Conjecture
in, these cases, is perfectly wild and
