THE WASHINGTON OEITIC, SUKDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1800.
MY FRIEND THE DUTCHMAN,
mr rncucmcK haiidman.
"And you will positively marry her,
if slio will liavo you?"
"Not a doubt of cttlior. Hot ore this

thinks to make a great catch of tho
rich Dutchman. Instead of that I shall
spend her salary. Tho old story going
out for wool and returning shorn."
Tho coineisatlonof which thU Is tho
concluding fragment, occurred In tho
public room of tho Hotel de Ilesic, In
tho village of Ilomburg on tho Hill
then nn Insignificant handful of houses
oWclatlug as capital of tho Important
landgravato of Ilossc-IIomburg. Tho
tablo d'hoto had been over somotimos
tho diesis had departed to repose In
their npartments until tho hour pf
evening piomenado should summon
them to tho excellent band of music
provided by tho calculating liberality
of tho gamlng-houso keepers, and to
loiter lounil tho brunnen of more or
less nauseous Ilavor, tho prctot of re
sort to this rendezvous of Idlcis nnd
gamblers. The wnltcrshad disappeared
to batlcu on tho broken meats from tho
public tabic, and to dozo away tho
tiino till tho approach of supper re
newed their activity. My interlocutor,
with whom I was nlono In tho deserted
apartment, was a man of about 80 years
of ago, whose dark hair and moustaches,
marked features, spare person and
complexion bronzed by a tioplcal sun,
entitled him to pass for a native of South
cm Kuiope, or even of some more ar
dent cllmo. Nevertheless, ho answered
to tho very Dutch patronymic of Van
Ilnubiti, and was a natlvo of Holland,
In whoso piincipal city his father was
a banker of considciablo wealth and
It was towards tho close of a glorious
August, and for two months I had been
wandering in lUiinoland. Not after
tho fashion of deluded Cockneys, who
fancy they have sceu tho lthiuc
when they have caiccied from Cologne
to Mannheim aslildo of a steam engine,
Raping at objects passed as soon as per
ceived; drinking and paying for in
different vinegar as Stcinbeigcr-Cabi-net,
eating vile dinucis on the decks of
steamers, and excellent ones in tho
capital hotels which British caBh and
patronago havo laiscd upon tho banks
of tho most louowned of German
streams. On tho contrary, I had eaily
dispensed with tho aid of steam, to
wander on foot, with tho occasional as
sistance of a lay dlllgcnco or rickety
cinsjianner, through the many beautiful
districts that lie upon either bank of
the liver; pedcslrianislng in Rhenish
'it Havana, losinc mvself in the Oden
wald and pausing, when occasion
offered, to pick a tiout out of the nu
merous streamlets that dash and mean
der through dell and lavlnc, on their
way to swell thowatcis of old Father
Hhine. At last, weary of solitude
scarcely broken by an occasional gossip-
witu a ncavy uciman uoor, village priest
or stiolling student I thirsted after
tho haunts of civilization, and found
mybelf, within a day of tho appeaianco
of tho symptoms, installed In n luxu
rious hotel In tho free city of Frankfort-on-the-Malnc.
Hut Frankfort at that
season Is deserted, save by passing
touiists, who cscapo as fast as possible
irom us ineicss streets ana sun-uaKca
pavements; so, otter glancing over an
English newspaper at. tho Casino, tak
ing ono all oil in tho beautiful gaiden
sunounding tho city, nnd another
through the Jew quarters always In
tel estlng and curious, although any
thing but savory at that warm season
1 gathcicd together my baggage and
was oil to Ilomburg. Thero I could
not complain of solitude, of deserted
streets nnd shuttered windows. It
seemed impossible that tho multitude
of gaily-dicsscd belles and cavaliers,
English, French, Gciman and ltuss,
who, from 0 in tho morning until sun
bet, lounged and flirted on the walks,
watered themselves at tho fountains
nnd pciillcd their complexions in tho
golden sunbeams, could ever bestow
themselves In the two or three mid
dling hotels nnd few scoro shabby lodging-houses
composing tho town of
Hombuig. Mnnngo it thoy did, how
ever; crept into their nanow cells at
night, to cmergo next morning, liko
buttci flics from tho chrysalis, gay,
bright and brilliant, and to rccomraenco
the ncvci-vniying but pleasant lound
of eating, saunteiing, love-making and
gambling. Ilomburg was not then what
St has since become. That great houso
of cauls, tho new Cursaal, had not yet
arisen; and Its table d'hoto, leading
room and profauo mysteries of roulet'to
nnd rongocMioir, found temporary
domiciles in n nanow, disreputable
looking den in the main street, wheio ac
commodations of all kinds, but es
pecially for dinner, was scanty In the
cxlieme. Tho public tables at tho
hotels were consequently thronged, and
ihcio acquaintances were soon made.
Tho doy of my nrrlvnl at Ilomburg I
was seated next to Van Ilaubltz; his
manner was off-band nnd frank; wo en
tered into conversation, took our after
dinner cigar uud ovening stroll together,
and by bedtimo had knocked un that
soit ot intimacy easily contracted at a
watering-place, which lasts ono's time
of residence, and Is extinguished and
forgotten on departure Van Haublt,
liko many Continentals and very few
Englishmen, was ouo of those free-and-easy
communicative persons who are as
familiar nflcr twelve hours' acquaint

twelve years, and who do not hcsltato
to confldo to a three-days' acquaintance
tho history of their lives, their pursuits,
position and prospects. I was soon
mado acquainted, to a very consider
able extent, at least, with those of my
friend Van Ilnublu, lato lieutenant of
artillery In tho seivlco of his Majesty
the King of Holland. Ho was the
youngest of four sons, and having
shown, at a very early ago, a wild and
intractablo disposition and precocious
addiction to dissipation, his father pro
nounced him unbiiltcd to business, and
decided on placing him In tho nrmy.
To this thoiHiAfr(lio claimed nobility,

pniticular objection, and might havo
mado a good enough ofllccr, but for his
lcckless, spendthilft mnuuer of life,
which entailed negllgenco of duty and
frequent repilmands. Exliavagant be
yond mcasuio, uuublo to deny himself
any giullflcatlon, squandeilng monoy
as though millions wcie at his com
mand, ho was constantly overwhelmed
-with debts and n maityr to-aluns. At
last his father, after thrlco clear
ing him with his creditois, con
scnted to do so a fourth tlmo only
on condition of his getting trans
foiled to a lcglmcnt stationed In tho
Dutch East Indies, nnd remaining
thereuntil his return had tho paternal

haps not altogether sorry to leave n

from his pledge and allowed to return

havo been no easy matter, oven for n

bit. Ho grumbled Immoderately, swoto
liko n pagan, but remained whore ho
was, A year passed and ho could hold
out no longer. Dlsrogaidlug tho pa
ternal displeasure and reckless of con
sequences, ho applied to tho chief mill
toiy authority of tho colony for Icavo
of absence. Ho was askcil his ple.i,
and alleged ilMicallh. Tho general
thought ho looked pretty well, and io
quested tho sight of a medical certifi
cate of his Invnlld state Van Ilnu
bltz assumed a doleful countcnaucoand
betook him to tho surgeons. They agreed
with tho ircneial that his aspect was
healthy; asked for symptoms; could
discover nono moic nlannlng thnn reg
ularity of pulse, sleep, nppctlte and dl
gestion; laughed in his face and re
insert tho ccitlflfcatc. Tho sickly gnu
nor, who had tho constitution of a ihl
noceros, nnd had never had a day's Ill
ness slnco ho got over tho measles at
tho ago of 1 years, waited a littlo and
tried tho second "dodgo" usually io
sorted to In such cases. "Urgent prl
vato affairs" were now the pretext.
The general cxpicsscd his lcgret that
urgent nubile nllalis rendered it impos
sible for him to dispense with tho vnlu
ablo sci vices of Lieutenant Van Hau
bitz. "Whcicupon Lieutenant Van Ilau
bit passed half an hour Fn heaping
maledictions on tho head of his diso
bliging commander and then sat down
and wroto nu application for an ex
change to tho authorities in Holland.
Tho reply was equally unsatisfactory,
tho fact being thntllaubitz senior, liko
an Implacable old savage as ho was, had
made intcicst at tho war office for tho re
fusal of all such lequcsls on tho pait of
hisscapcgracooffspilng. Ilnubitz junior
tooic pauence lor nnouicr yoar, ana
then, n a moment of extrcmo disgust
and ennui, threw up his commission
and returned to Europe, tuisllng, ho
told me, that after flvo years' absence,
tho governors bowels would yearn to

was cntiicly mistniscn; ho gicntlyun

censed old Hollander refused him the
smallest cutlet, and, shutting tho door
in his face, consigned him, with raoio
encigy than affection, to tho custody
of the evil one. Van Ilnubitz found
himself in an awkward fix. Credit was
dead; nono of his relatives would notice
or assist him; his whole fortuno con
sisted of a doicn gold Wllhclms. At
this cilllcnl moment nu ccccntilc
maiden nuut, to whom, a year or two
picviously, ho had sent a propitiatoiy
offciing of a ring-tailed monkey and a
leash ot pca-giccn parrots, and who
had never condescended to acknowl
edge the picscnt, departed this llfo be
queathing him 10,000 floiins as a ic
turn for the addition to her mcnageilo.

would have cndeavoied to employ this
sum, modeiateas it was, in some tiadc
or business, or, at any rate, would havo
livid sparingly till he lound other ic
souiccM. Hut Ilnubitz had not yet
sown all his wild oats: ho had n soul
above bailer, a gloiious dlsregaid of
tho future, the present being pro
ided for; ho left Holland, shak
ing the dust fiom his boots, dashed
nciossHclgium and was soon plunged
in tho gaieties of a Palis carnival.
Breakfasts at tho llocher, dlnncis at
tho cafe, balls at tho opeia and tho
concomitant pctits soupcrs nnd ccaitc
parties with the fair deniens of the
Qunrlier Loictte, soon operated a prod
igious chasm in tho monkey-money, as
Van Haubitz iiievciently styled his
venciablo aunt's bequest. Spring hav
ing nirived, ho beat a rctieat from
luis and established himself at Horn
buig, where ho was quietly completing
tuo consumption ot uio iu.uuu noilus
at ralhcr n slower paco than he would
havo done at that headquaitcrs of pleas
ant iniaulty, tho capital of Franco.
Fiom hints ho let fall, I suspected a
short time would suffice to seo tho last
of the legacy. On this head, however,
he had been less confidential than on
most other matters, and certainly his
manner of living would havo led no
ono to suppose ho wns low in tho
lotker. Nothing was too good for him;
ho diank tho best of wines, got up
paitics and plc-nlcs for tho ladies, aud
had a special addiction to tho purchnso
of costly trinkets, which ho geneially
gavo avvny bcfoic they had been a day
in his possession. Ho did not gamble;
he had done so, he told mo, once slnco
ho was at Ilomburg, and had won, but
ho had no faith in his luck or taste for
that kind of excitement, and should
play no moic. Ilowns playing another
game just now, which apparently in
terested him gicntly. A few days
beforo my.sclf, a young actress,
who, w ithfn a very short tnno, had ac
qulied considciablo celobrity, had ar

mother, Finuleln Emlllo Scndel was

not jet been entirely despoiled by en
vious lougo of their natuial, healthful
tinge; hair, of that peculiar tint of red
nubuin which the Ficnch call a blonde
hasaule, was moio icmarkablo for
I nbundnnco and flexibility than for fine-
, ness of texture. As regnrded her qual
llies and accomplishments, .sho
wns good-humoicd and tolerably un
affected, hutwilfull and capricious as a
I spoiled child; she spoko Iter own lan
guage pretty well, with an occasional
slight vulgniism or bltot green-room
j slang; had a smntteriug of French, nnd
ployed tho piano sufficiently to accom
pany tho ballads and vaudeville airs
which sho sang with spirit and cou
erablo fiecdom of style. I had met
. Gciman actresses who wcio farnioro
lady like off tho stage, but thero was
nothing glniingly oricpulsivoly vulgar
about Emlle, mill as a neighbor at n
public dinner table, sho was amusing
and ipiltu above par. As If to vindicate
her nationality, sho would occasionally
look sentimental, but tho mood sat 111
upon her nnd never lasted loug; com-
I cay was evidently her natuial Hue.
Against her reputation, minor, always
an iuquisltlvo censor, often a mean li
beller of ladles of tho nrofosslou, had
as yet, so far as I could leniu, found
nothing to allege Her mother, a dingy

daughters sldo at dinner tablo and
piominndo To tho heart of tho daugh
tcr, Van Ilaublt, almost fiom tho
111 st hour ho had seen her, had laid
pi I severing and determined slogo.
During our uf tcr diiiucr (ttc-a-tcto ou
tho day now referred to, my friend tho
gunnorhhd shown himself exceedingly
unreserved, nnd, without any attempt
on my pait to draw him out, ho had
elucidated, with a frankness that must
hnve satisfied tho most Inquisitive,
whatever small points of his recent his
tory and present position ho had
previously left In obscurity. Tho con
versation began so soon as tho cloth
was removed and tho guests had de
parted, by a jesting allusion on my part
to his flirtation with thd acticss and to
her gracious leceptlon of his attentions.
"It Is no mere flirtation," said Van,
gravely. "My intentions aio serious.
You may depend Mademoiselle Scndol
understands them as such,"
"Serlousl You don't mean that you
want to marry her?"
"Unquestionably I do. It Is my only
"Your only chance!" I lcpeated, con
siderably puzzled. "Aro you about to
turn actor, and do you tiust to her for
Instruction In histitonlcs?"
"Not exactly. 1 will explain. La
Scndel, you must know, has Just termi
nated her last engagement, which was
at a salary of 10,000 florins. Sho has
nlrcady lccclvcd and accepted au offer
of a new one, at 15,000, from tho
Vienna Theatio. Vienna Is a vciy
pleasant place. Fifteen thousand floiins
mo 02,000 francs, or 1,200 of your
English pounds sterling. Upon that
sum two persons con llvo cxcclleiitly
well in Germany, nt least."
Unnblo to contradict any of theso as
sertions, I held my tongue. The Dutch
"You know tho history of my past
life; I will toll you my present position.
It is critical enough, hut I shall Im
prove it, for hcie," and ho touched his
forehead, "Is what never falls mo.
This letter" (ho produced an cpistlo of
mercantile aspect, bearing tho Amster
dam post-mark), "I received last week
from my eldest brothor. Tho shabby
schclm declares ho will icply to no
moro of mino; that his cffoits to ar
range mattciswlth my father havo been
fruitless, and thnt tho old gentleman
has strictly foibiddcn him aud his
brotheis to hold any communication
with me, a command they seem willing
enough to obey. So" much for that.
And now for tho finances. "
He took out his uockotbook. oneucd
and shook it a flimsy, crumpled bit of
paper fell out. It was a noto of tho
Bank of France for 1.000 lrnncs.
"My last," said ho. "That gone, I
am a beegar. Hut It won't come to
that, either, thanks to Fraulcln
"Smely," said I, "you arc too reck
less of moncv; too extiavagant and un
reflecting. Six months ago vou told
mo you had twenty such notes."
"Ay, twenty-two exactly at tho end
of Januniy when I left Amslei dam.
Hut whither was I bound? To Paris,
and who can cconomiso there? I'vo
had my money's worth and couid have
had no moic had I dribbled tho dirty
10,000 floiins over three years Instead
of three months. I tako great credit
for making it last so long. Such sup

plensantest fellows nud prettiest ac

rapidly in thnt sort of society. One
must be a Hussion nrincc or a Ficnch
fiuillctonisto to keep it up. I never
flinched nt anything so long as tho

myself leduccd to the last noto, I got
Into tho Frankfort mail and camo to

"Bui if you had only 1,000 fianes
on leaving Paris, and have got them
still, how have you lived since?"
"You don't suppose these me tho

getting thiough money hoio unless one
gambles, which I do not; but colli has
somehow or other a peculiar aptitude
to slip thiough my llncers, and the
1,000 francs soon cvapoiated. Mean
while, I had wiitten dozens of letters
to my biotheis, who seldom answeicd,
nnd to my lather, who nevei did. I
piomiscdicform nud a respcetablo lifo
if they would either get me a snug
place with little to do and good pay, or
make mo n lcnsonnblo yearly allow
ance, something better than the pnltiy
'J, 000 florins they doled out to mo when
I was in tho nitilleiy, and on which, ns
I could not live, I was obliged to get in
debt. They paid no attention to my re
quest, reasonable as it was. Tho best
offei they made me was five francs a
day, paid weekly, to live in a Silcslun
x illnge. This was adding insult to In
jury, and I left off wilting to them. A
tew days afterward, taking out my
puibo to pay for cignis, a dollar
dropped out. It was my last. I paid
it away, walked home, lny down upon
my bed, smoked and reflected. My position-
was gloomy enough, aud the
more I looked at it the blacker it
seemed. Fiom my undutlful relatives
there wns no hope; tho abominable
Silesian project was evidently their ul
timatum. 1 hod no friend to turn to,
no resource left. I might ccitainly
havo obtained tho mero necessities of
life at this hotel, where my credit was
excellent, and have vegetated a month
or two as a man must vegetate without
ready monoy. But I had no fancy for
such nn expedient, a mere protraction
of tho agony. I lay lumlnating for two
houis, two such houis as I should bo
sorry to pass again, aud then my mind
was mado up. I had a brace of small
traveling pistols amongst my baggage;
theso I loaded and put In my pocket;
and then, leaving tho hotel and tho
town, I struck across the country for
somo distance nnd plunged into a
w ood. There I sat down upon a grass
bank, my back against an old beech.
It wns evening and tho solltaiy Httb
glndo before me wns striped with tho
last sunbemns daitlng between tho
tree trunks I hove difficulty in defining
my sensations at that moment. I wns
quitp resolved, did not waver an instant
in my purpose, but my head was dizzy,
and I had a sickly sensation about tho
heart. Deteimincd thnt tho physical
shrinking fiom death should not havo
time to weaken my moinl determina
tion, I hastily opened my waistcoat, felt
for tho pulsations of my heart, placed
tho muzzle of a pistol where thoy wero
strongest, f-tcadylng It on thnt spot with
my left hand. Then I looked stialckt
before mo and pulled tho tilggor. Thero
was the click ot tho lock, but no report;
the cap was bad, and had been crushed
without exploding. That was a lion I
ble moment, I snatched up another
pistol, which lay cocked to my hand,
and thitist tho muzle into my mouth.
As beforo, tho shnip nolso of tho ham
mer upon tho nipple wns tho solo result.
The caps had been somo time in my
possession, and had becomo woithlcss
through ngo or damp."
I looked nt Van Ilaubll. doubtful
whether ho was not hoaxlnsr mo. Hut
hitherto I had observed in hi m no ad
diction to tho Munchausen vein, and
now his countenance nud voice were
scilous; there was n slight flush on his
cheek and ho was e Idcntly exetted at
tho recollection of his nborilvo attempt
at suicide, peihaps a llltlo ashamed of
It. I wns convinced ho told tho truth.
"I do not know," ho continued,
whelhei, had I had surer weapons with
me, I should havo had coinage to mako
a third attempt upon my llfo. Honestly,
I think not; tho self preservative In
stinct was rapidly galtilm: stiength. I
walked slowly back to tho town, my
bialn still confused fiom tho agltatinz
moments I had passed. I was utinbla
quite to collect my thoughts, and felt
us It I had just awakened from a long,
heavy sleep. It was now dark; llght9
streamed from tho open windows of
tho gambling-rooms; tho voices of tho
croupiers, tho stir and hum of tho play
ers nnd jlngllnc of money wero dis
tinctly heard in tho streets without. I
havo nlrcady told you I am no gam
bler, not from Bcruplo, but choice.
Nevertheless, 1 used otten to stioll up
to the Cursnal for an hour of an even
ing, when tho play was nt tho highest,
to look on and chat with chanco ac
quaintances. Mccliaulcnlly, I now as
cended the stalls. On tho landing
plncol found myself fnqo to face with
a man with whom I was slightly Inti
mate, and who, n few evenings before
had borrowed forty finncs of me. I
had not seen him since, nnd ho now re
turned mo tho pieco of gold. 'Tiy
jourluck with it, fanld he; 'thero Is a
run against tho bank to night, every
body wins, nnd M. Blanc looks blue.'
And ho pointed to ono of tho propri
etors of the tables, who, howovcr, woro
a tolerably tranquil air, knowing well
that what was cairicd away one night
would como back with compound In
terest tho next. Tho ploy was heavy at
tho rougc-ct-notr table; a Hussion anil

judging fiom their appearance, aud
fiom tho complicated airay of calcula

professional gamblers extracted, at
nearly oveiy coup, notes or louleaus of
gold from the grated box'cs in front of
tho bankeis. I drank a glass of water,
for my lips were diy and hot, and,
placing myself ns near tho table as tho
ciowd of players and spcctatois per
mitted, watched tho game. My hand
was in my pocket, the forty-finnc pieco
still between its flneers. But, in spito
of tho advice of hiin who had paid it
me, I felt no disposition to lfsk tho
coin; not that I feared to lose It, for as
my only ono it was useless; but because,
as I tell you, I never hnd the slightest

I'm always light. I bet this deal be

hundred fianes to fifty it docs not?'
"Nobody accepted tills spoiling
offer, or placed upon the color which
the oolouel's piophotic soul foresaw
w as to como out. Tho cards were now
shuffled nnd cut for dealing. The hell
relapsed into silence.
'"Faitesle jeu, Mcweleurs!' was re
peated in tho haish, business-like tones
of tho presiding demon,
"'Bed wins,' creaked tho colonel.
'Seven limes nt the least.'
"Ncaily all tho plovcis backed tho
black. By an idle impulso I threw
down my forty fianes, my entire for
tune, upon the led. Tho old soldier
looked lound to seo tho judicious Indi
vidual who followed his advice, smiling
grimly nnd nodding approvingly. The
next moment red won. I let tho monoy
lie and walked into tho next room.
Eighty finncs wero of no more uso to
me than forty, and I felt vciy sure that
another tin u of tho card would carry
off both stako and winnlugs. I took up
a newspaper, but soon threw it down
again, for my head was not clear
enough to rend, and I felt exhausted
with the emotions of tho day. I was
about to leave tho house when I heard
aloud buz in the cnid-ioom, and tho
next instant somebody clutched my
arm. It was tho French colonel, in a
stato of furious excitement; grinning,
panting, perspiring and stuttering with
CuiitViwrrf next Sunday.

for Tuesday next. Tho 11th of Fobru
rory Is tho annlvcisnry of tho abdica
tion of Amadous, tho recently deceased
Duko of Aosta, and the Inauguiatton
of tho shoit-lived republic, a fonn of
government which fnllod, Spanish
theorists sny, because It was too tender
hearted to punish tho enemies who wero
openly plotting Us destruction. Many
think tho nnnounccd gathering will
mark an impoitnut cia in Spanish
An Iberian republic, somewhat after
the model of the United Stale", nicely
rounded off by tho admission of Poitu
cnl, is mildly hoped foi by such repub
licans ns Ply, Morgoll and Castellnr,
tho Sp.inimds reminding tho inhabi
tants of tho smaller kingdom how
linndv it would bo in ciso of another
difficulty to belong to a body cap iblo
of defending Us rights. Seuov Gomez
is said to havo cynically remarked, iu
reference to such nrgument, that after
tho Spantaids havo diiven tho English
out of Gibraltar It will bo tlmo to talk
of piotcctlng other people.

Tho robbery of tho steamer La
Plato, discovered after her anival at
Antwerp from Buenos Ayios, proves to
havo been n deep laid affair. An oiler

nt Antwcin is said to bo an American.
Somo cipher letteis nnd telegrams
havo been found in tho lodgings ho

sofnrasthev can be constiucd, inti

worked on tho La Plata aud other boats
and once nnuowly missed n much

which has rewarded their efforts.
Tho significant admonition of Em
peror William to tho military cadets at
the Collego of Lichtcrfeldo to temper
dlsclpllno with humanity admirably
supplements tho warning given by tho
impiisonment of three Bavarian officers
for abusing their men. Tho Prus
sian officers aro notoilously moio
merciless to thoso under them than
arc tho Bavarians. It Is sold that, in view
of the number of meu actually killed

that in future instances of the kind
their comrades will diaw lots to seo
who shall avengo tho fate of their
