The once famous Countess de Mercy
Argenteao, whose death was recently an
nounced, was born at Caraman-Chimay,
aad Belgium rarely produced either so
beautiful or so talented a woman as Eliza
beth, Countess of Caraman-Chimay. The
imperial family of France in prosperity or
adversity possessed no truer or more faith
ful friend, and up to the last she was wont
to wear a neeklace of three rows of the
purest pearls eiven her by the emperor.
- When Napoleon surrendered as Sedan
he requested Count de Mercy Argenteau to
burn the whole of his carriages. The onl
relic of this melancholy commission pre
served at the chateau of Argenteau, out the
Mease, is a pane bearing the imperial
monogram. While detained atWilbelms
hoehe the captive monarch beeged the clev
erest woman of his court to com to him,
and it was into her sympathetic ear that
he poured out a scheme for gigninfr an ad
vantageous peace with Prussia after his
army had been restored to him.
Xapoleon concluded by earnestly begging
the countess to convey a letter from him
to the Pmsaian crown prince.
Protected br a safe conduct from Bis
marck, and I ear in g her lady's maid behind
her atStrasburg,shetet out wit bout a mo
ment's delay on her solitary and penrous
journey northward. She was compelled
to pass one night in an ambulance wagon,
where she was carefully looked after by a
German nurse, who ultimately proved to
be a princess in diszuwe." Having reached
Versailles she introduced herself to the
crown prince bf reminding him cf tLe
very different circumstances under which
they hail once opened a ball at Wiesbaden.
The future emperor listened courteously
to Ler impassioned pleading, but replied
that the best interests of Germany forbade
the granting of the request and compli
ance wich Xapoleon's proposal, even if he
had len able to oblige her personally.
She left his quarters alrao-t broken
hearted. Chicaeo Iierald.
