Tn March, 18f>0, there arrived at Con stantinople, by the Austrian Lloyd's steam er Vorwarts* a gentleman who styled him self Count Steffano Perragi, He took a suite of rooms atpiesirie’s fashionable hotel in Pera, and, by his lavish style of living, soon became the centre of attraction. He said he was a Colonel of the Austrian Imperial Guards, and a member of the Diet. He had come to Turkey on private Government affairs, and was furnished with numerous intro ductions to the foreign ambassadors and i princes. A month alter Ins arrival, he headed a subscription list with the sum of five thous and piastres, in aid of “Madame Sophie Cartenagg, the widow of the late Monsieur Cartenagg, formerly hanker of Berlin, who by the death of her husband, found herself in a strange land, with her three young children nestltute of support.” In some such manner ran the heading of the sub scription list. Count Perragi humanely took upon him self the task of soliciting subscriptions; ! and incredible as it may seem, collected I the sum of thirty-five thousand dollars in ! about twenty days ! | (hie morning, Perragi suddenly disap peared. Suspicions having arisen, the po lice authorities were instructed to find out Madame Cartenagg. But alas for humati credulity! the police swore by the beard of Mohammed, that madanie was a myth, and the Crescent City knew her not! Done to the tune of $3o,000! Thus ends the i first act in this strange drama. ! Now for the second act. Not far from the Cafe do Paris stands the shop of M. M . , DeGranti Brothers, diamond brokers to his Imperial Majesty the Sultan. Opposite this extensive depot of preeious stones stood the pharmacy of Dr. Jacob Valpass. Five minutes' walk from these two estab lishments stands the Hotel Europe. In the latter place, Madanie Estelle Deorcst and her sickly son Albert had | hired a magnificent suite of rooms for the i winter. .She was a quiet melancholy sort j of lady, of about thirty. All her thoughts ! seemed centered in her boy. But, oh! how surpassingly lovely she was! They say that the waiters at the Europe made quite ! a handsome tiling out of her by aHowing sundry “sparks” to peep at Madanie through the keyhole as she sat in her ele gant morning costume at breaksast. SJie paid all her bills regularly, saw no visitors 1 and received no letters. So much for j Madame. M. DeGranti, Jr., was rather a fast ' young fellow, very rich, and very fond of horses. The elder brother was at this time absent in Paris. Dr. Jacob Valpass was a man of thirty two, and considered very dtever. His fa ther had left him some considerable property, but, as lie was passionately de voted to his profession, he still continued in practice. Wo have now sufficiently described the four principal actors in this | drama. it was alter ten o clock one night, and Doctor Jacob Valpass sat in his studv. A person requested to see him. A tall, deep veiled lady entered. Dr. Valpass politely offered her a chair, and asked her the nature of her business. With a deep sigh she threw back her veil, and the doctor's weaker human half surveyed that dazzling beauty in bewilderment. She told her story in a quiet, brief man ner. She had ap only son on whom she doated passionately, lie was subject to tits of monomania. And most extraordin ary as it might seem, bis desires lay in the fact that nothing but dimonds placed about him would satisfy his cravings. She had consulted the best medical men of Europe autl they prescribed change of scene. She had traveled considerably, hut without any salutary effect upon her boy. She laid been advised to consult Dr. Valpass, and as her son had just recovered from one of these periodical tits, she earnestly requested him to visit iter at the Hotel Europe. Doctor Valpass took charge of this cu rious ease, and soon became very intimate with Madam Deorest. To be brief, poor Valpass fell deeply iu love, aud a month after their acquaintance he proposed to her and was accepted. Thus stood matters iu December, 1851, and so closes the second act. ‘ '• The last scene opens on the 4th day of January, 1802. Doctor Valpass was put ting on his gloves, preparatory to entering his carriage, when ho saw liis affianced bride rushing madly toward* him. He ran out and met her. ‘•What is the matter, Estella?” “Oh, darling he is worse. O, come to him! come him!” cried the frantic moth er. “One moment; step into the carriage; I will be witli you immediately.” lie crossed over to the establishment of MM. DeGranti. “Let me have that diamond necklace, these bracelets, this brooch and these rings. Quick, DeGranti! 1 am in a hurry. 1 only want them for an hour.” “Hut doctor, these are worth millions, and-urged the broker, rather at a loss what to do. “Give me pen. ink and paper. Here is my note of hand for the articles. How much are they worth ?” “At rough calculations, twenty millions of piasters.” “Very wen; nereyou are; now quic*. j the articles." Ten minutes alter, the doctor and mad ante reached the hotel, and found Albert in the hands of two domestics. The rat'd - l ieal man took charge of the yelling boy and dismissed the servants. •' ••**-•* lie drew forth his treasures and placed them about the boy. It was ‘wbnaetfhl.' The boy danced with glee, clapped his hands, and gradually became padded He then slowly left the room with down cast head. The enraptured mother flung herself into the arms of her savior, and, with tears in her beautiful eyes, thattked him from her heart. Then 'followed’One i delicious kiss, and the doctor was in the
