DIAMONDS AND PRECIOUS STONES.
Magnificent and Hare Treasures Owned
by Notable Personages.
At long the queens and empresses of the
past who possessed diamonds and other
jewels of exceptional beauty are Queen
Elizabeth, the two Russian empresses
(Catherine and Elizabeth), and the Em
press Maria Theresa of Austria. Among
royal ladies of the present day, Queen Vic
toria has the most valuable diamonds ana
pear s, that is, if one includes the regalia
at the tower, some of these treasures being
quitavunique. The Empress Eugenie was
at ore time the possessor of an exquisite
necklace of white pearls, which was after
ward sold to the Marquis of Povir for
Tha present empress of Russia owns the
larg st and most valuable diamonds of the
older type, and probably the most magnifi
cent iiamond diadems. The czar is a great
admirer of precious stones, and bought, a
year or two ago, a large number of dia
monds and emeralds for the empress. Of
great rarity are the black pearls belonging
to tha empress of Austria. The Countess
of P trls possesses a famous garniture of
emerilds, which is a present from her
mother, and which is one of the finest and
most valuable in existence. Of rubies, the
duchess of Luynes and the Duchess of
Donceauville probably possess the most
famous. The Baroness Gustave de Roths
child has a necklace of pearls which is of
imuM-nse value. Among sovereigns the
shah of Persia and some .of the Indian
princes have the most magnificent treas
ures of precious stones.
Mrs. Mackay's pearls and diamonds vie
with those of many a qieen; of Mrs.
Mackay's pearls one alone is vat tied at
about 1,300. A magnificent pearl neck
lace, which belonged to the French crown
jewels and which was bought by the
Parisian jeweler. Tiffany, for close upon
8,0(Ki, has also passed into the possession
of an American lady. The late Russian
Prince Gussupow possessed precious stones,
many of which were of historic interest,
value! at 200.000,000 rubles. The Princess
Lobk owitz li ft at her death a necklace coa
sistinof 6,ti6 selected diamonds to the
monastery of the Capuchins at Prague.
Count, Edmund Zichy owned a famous
family treasure, comprising six garnitnres
of diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires,
"In the cii mates where nature works
hardest people work least." Such was the
opinion of an old traveler of our acquaint
ance, says a writer in Harper's Bazar.
"Yen don't know what I mean? Well,
I'll te.l you. In tropical countries, where
natura works day and night to produce
every! hing that man can use in quantities
enough to supply the whole world, people
are a most too lazy to eat the fruits she
provides, and are quite too lazy to keep
themselves clean, though they don't- even
have to make their own soap.
"Do they import it, you ask? Oh, no!
Tbey have only to put forth a hand and
gather it. In South America, as well as in
most of the West India islands, the soap
tree, cr Sapindussaponaria, bears a fruit
the pi lp of which is an admirable soap,
perfectly capable of cleansing sixty times
its own weight of badly soiled linen. In
some of the South Sea islands the same
cleansing property is found in the stem of
a vine called the vitas saponaria, which,
when cut i:i pieces and boiled iu water,
makes a fine lather; and in Egypt and
soutbirn Sp.-iin are found roots with the
same property. It is only another proof, I
think, that the necessity for labor is a
blessiiiK instead of a curse; so much farther
ad van ?ed in all the arts and comforts of
ci viliz ttion are those nations who are com
pelled by a vigorous climate to work hard
for a living than are those whom prodigal
nature loads with her benefits."

Man of Thackeray's characters are be
lieved to have been drawn from real life,'
but thU idea is not always founded upon
sufficient evidence to be unreservedly ac
cepted. It has been asserted that in the
character of lord Steyne the novelist in
tended to represent the Marquis of Hert
ford, a notorious character in his time,
very dLsolute and very rich. This noble
man, whose name was Richard Seymour,
was born in 1800, and held a commission
as-capbiin in the army until, in his forty
third j ear, he succeeded to the family
wealth and title. It seems plain that he
might have stood for the character of Lord
Steyne, but that the novelist intended to
represe itiim is a mere matter of conjec
ture. Aleian ler Hamilton and John Q. Adam.
