THE POKTHAIT...lo?uni.r?.
CHAPTER II.
A number of carriugcs, cake-hen, and drnjki* were
drawn up in the vicinity of a handsome mansion in
one of the best quarters of St. Petersburg. It had
been tite residence of a rich virtuoso, lately deceased,
and whose pictures, furniture, and curiosities, were
now selling by auction. The large drawing-room
was filled with the most distinguished amateurs ol
art in St. Petersburg, mingled with brokers and dealers
on the look-oirt for bargains, and with a laru?
sprinkling of those idler- who, without intending to
purchase, frequent auctions to kill a morning. Tite
sale was in full activity, and there was eager competition
for the lot then up. The biddings succeeded
each other so rapidly, that the auctioneer was scarcely
able to repeat them. The object so many were
eager to possess, was a portrait, which could hardly
fail to attract the attention even of persons who
knew nothing of pictures. This painting, which
possessed n very considerable amount of artistical
merit, and had apparently been more than once restored,
repaired, and cleaned, represented the tawny
features of an Oriental, attired in a loose costume.
The expression of the luce was singular, and by no
means pleasant. Its most striking feature was the
extraordinary and unaccountable look of the m*,
which, by some trick of the artist, seemed to follow
the spectator wherever he went. Every one of the
persons there assembled was ready to sweur that the
eyes looked straight at hint; and, what was yet more
unaccountable, the effect wus the same whether the
beholder stood on the right, or on the left, or in front
of the picture. This peculiarity it was that hud made
so many anxious to possess a portrait whose subject
and painter wore alike unknown. Graduully, however,
many of the amateurs ceased their biddings,
for the price had become extravagant, and at lust
only two continued to compete?two rich noblemen,'
both enthusiastic lovers of the eccentric in art. These
still continued the contest, grew heated with their
rivalry, and were in a fair way to raise the price to
something positively absurd, when a by-stander stepped
forward und addressed thom : " Uefore this conr
test goes further," he said, "permit me to say a few
words. Of all here present, it is I, I believe, who
have the best right to the portrait in dispute."
All eyes were turned towards the speaker. He was
a tall, handsome man, of about thirty-five, with a
pleasant, cheerful countenance, a careless style of
dress, and long black curb flowing down his neck.
Hq was personally known to many present, and the
? name ui n , me arusi, ?a? circuiaicu uuuugii
the room.
" Extraordinary as my words may appear to you,"
he resumed, perceiving he hud fixed the general attention,
' 1 can explain them if you arc disposed to
give me five minutes' audience. I have every reagon
to believe that this portrait is one I hav?f long sought
in vain."
Curiosity was expressed on every countenance;
the auctioneer stood open-mouthed and with uplifted
hammer; all entreated B to tell his tale. The
artist at once complied.
" You are all acquainted," he said, " with the quarter
of St. Petersburg known as the Kolomna, and
award that it is chiefly occupied by ptraons either in
poverty, or whose resources arp exceedingly limited,
many of whom, compelled by unforeseen circumstances
to outstrip their limited income, frequently
find themselves in want of immediate and temporary
assistance; compelled, in short, to apply to moneylenders.
In consequence of this, there hus settled
amongst them a particular class of usqrers, who supply
petty sums on satisfactory pledges, and at enormous
interest. These pawnbrokers on a small scale
ore generally far more pitiless than the aristocratic
usurer, whose customers drive to his door in their
carriages. Compunction, humanity, a feeling of pity
for the unfortunates upon whose need they fatten,
never by any chance enter their breast. Amongst
these callous extortioners there was one who, at a
certain period of the last century, under the reign of
the Etnprcsa Catherine II., had been settled for some
years in the Kolomna. He was an extraordinary
and enigmatical personage, of whom none knew anything
; he wore a flowing Asiatic dress, his complexion
was swarthy a* an Arab; but to what nation he
really belonged, whether Hindoo, or Greek, or Persian,
none couid decide. His tall stature, his tawny,
withered, wiry face, with its tint of greenish bronze,
hla large eyes full of sullen fire, shadowed by thick
an<l nvorhanoinir hrnu u cvorv nninl in Itia nnnmtrJ
aoce, in abort, made a strong and marked distinction
between him and the otlifer inhabitants of tlte
quarter. His very dwelling was quite unlike the little
wooden houses which surrounded it. It was a
large brick budding, in the stylo of those often constructed
by the Genoese merchants, with windows ol
different sixes, disposed at itrcgular distances, witli
iron shuttors and hasps. This usurer was distin
guished from all others by the circumstance that h<
could always supply any sum of money required, ant
-t would accommodate aliko the needy groom and the
extravagant noble. At his door were often to bt
seen brilliant equipages, through wlio.se windows
might sometimes be discerned the head of a luxurious
and fashionable lady. Rumor said that his iror
chest teemed with countless heaps of money, platt
diamonds, and all kinds of valuable pledges, but nevertheless
he was reported less greedy than the othei
money lenders. He made no difficulty, people said
to lend, and was apparently far from oppressive ii
fixing the terms of payment. But on the day of reck
oning, It was observed, that by some extruordinarj
arithmetical calculation, he made the Interest moun
up to an enormous sum ; such, at least, was the pop
ular report. The strangest thing about him, howev
er, aud which struck everybody, was the fatality tha
seemed to attach to his loans: all who borrowed o
him finished their lives in an unhappy manner.?
Whether this was a mere popular notion, a stupic
superstitious gossip, or a rumor intentionally dissem
inated, has ever remained a mystery. But it is a fac
that many tilings occurred to give it validity, am
that within a comparatively short period of time.?
Amongst the aristocracy of the day, there was ont
young man who particularly attracted the attentioi
of society. Ik wus of undent descent and nobh
blood} had very early distinguished himself in tin
service of the empire, as a warm protector of everj
thing honorable and elevated, and as a passionate
lover 01 art and genius. lie was noon (iintinguishet
by the personal notice of the Empress, who confide*
to him the duiice of an office peculiarly adapted to hi
taetcii an 1 talents?an office which gave him power t<
be of the greatest service not only to science, but t<
humanity itself. The young noble surrounded himsel
with artists, poets, scholars, and men of learning.?
To all of them he promised employment, patronage
protection. He undertook, at his own expense, a
number of important publications, gave a multitude
of orders to artists, founded prizes for excellence,
spent enormous sums In this unselfish manner, and
at length got into difficulties. Full, however, of gcneroua
f nthusiusm, and unwilling to leuve ids work
half finished, he borrowed money in all directions,
and at length iound his way to the famous usurer in
the Kolomna. Having obtained from this man a
very extensive loan, the' young noble all at once underwent
a complete transformation. He became, ni
by enchantment, the enemy of rising intellect anc
talent, the persecutor of all he had previously pro
tec ted. It was just then that the French Rcvolutior
broke out. This event gave hiin a handle for suspi
cion. In everything he detected some revolutionarj
tendency! in every word, in every i pre seed opinion
he saw a dangerous hint or |n rftdious institution
The dieease gained on him till he almost began t<
suspect himself. He laid false informations, fabri
rated the foulost charges, and caused tin ruin of nuin
bers of innocent people. At first, his guilty rnanmu
vres were undetected, and, when found out, thej
were thought to proceed from insanity. Report wai
made to the Empress, who deprived him of his of
flee. But his severest sentence whs the contempt hi
read in the fares of his countrymen. I need no
describe the sufferings of this vain and insolent spi
rir, the tortures he endured from crushed pride, do
fested ambition, ruined expectations. At last hi
monomania-for such it must surely have been?if
gravated by regret and chagrin, became insanity, on<
in a frightful paroxysm the unhappy maniac com
' mitted suicide.

one twelvemonth a total und terrible change took
place in the character of the prince. Hitherto
noble, generous, and confiding, he bccume, on
a sudden, jealous, suspicious, impatient, and capricious.
He was the tyrant and tormentor of his
wife ; and to the unbounded astonishment of every
body who had known him before his marriage, treated
her with inhuman brutality, and wus even known
to strike her! In one year the beautiful und dazzling
girl, who was followed by a crowd of obedient
adorers, could not be recognised in the care-worn
und unhappy wife. At length, unable longer to support
the cruel yoke of such a marriuge, she sought u
separation. At the first notification of this step, the
prince gave wuy to the most uncontrolled furyburst
into her chamber, and would infullibly have
stubbed her, hud he not been seized and removed by
force. Mad with rage, he turned his weapon upon
himself, and lay a corpse at the feet of his horrorstricken

How bright the hopes that round us shed
Their purest light in cheering ray,
That thou, in life with us might tread

And each that knew thee ever lovea,
And will, thy memory, evermore!
Guileless in thought, thy gentle eye,
Shed forth affection's holy beam ;
With lip, and soul of Chastity,
Thy life was us an angel's dream!
But thou art gone! Thy spirit pure,.

From earth's wild passions now secure,
In chungeless and supernal love.

Thy parents miss ihce when the hand
Of puin is on their fevered brow,
Where once a watcher thou didst stand,

DAILY NATIONAL WHIG,
TUESDAY AFTERNOON, NOV'R 23, 1847.
For President
GENERAL ZACHARY TAYLOR.
Subject to the decision of the Whig National Convention
Great Taylor Sleeting In Alabama.
On the 16th instant, a tremendous Taylor meeting
was held at Montgomery, Alabama, for the purposi
of taking steps to select a Tuylor Electoral Ticket foi
the Presidency. Without further remark, we subjoit
the remarks of that sterling and steady Whig papei
the Montgomery Journal upon the subjoct, and in
account of the meeting.
THE TAYLOR MEETING.
The meeting held last night (16th of November) It
the Court House for the purpose of putting in mo
lion the ball for the people's candldute, the hero o
the Rio Grande, was thu most satisfactory and en
thuslastic affair that it was over our lot to witness.The
concourse was immense, and the feeling of at
intense excited patriotism wltich over-rode ever;
emotion of a party or Belhsh nature. The prescrva
tion of the country, the constitution, and the south
by the elevation of Gen. Taylor, was the comtnoi
altar on which distinguished politicians of all partie
for the well-being of their country, otlered up tltei
cherished prejudices. It wus emphatically a people'
meeting, and their united and fervid responses to tit
sentiments of the resolutions showed how deep wu
their feelings of love, reverence, and admiration fo
the character of their great leader, and their trustln
faith in Ills ability to redoetn the republic.
The 8|K!ttking was of a high nature, such ns onl
such a fueling, such a subject, and Buch an occasio
could inspire. We havo never heard eloquence of u
higher order. Messrs. Beman, Reiser, Milliard, New

The motto of the meeting was 11Country above Pat
fy," and the tumultuous cheering of the immcnt
concourse which thronged the Court House showe
how fcrvant and universal was love of country in
planted in the heart of masses. So intense was tli
enthusiasm that the audience, though the hour we
late, was unwilling to disperse, nnd the meeting we
adjourned over until to-morrow night.
THH TAYLOR MEETING.
[official.]
In pursuance with the call, an immense galhcrin
of the people thronged the Court House at the hot
appointed for the meeting. On motion of M. Asl
urst, Esq., James M. Newman was called to th
Chair, and, on motion of H. W. Watson, Win, G
Robcrston was appointed Secretary.
On the organization of the meeting being annourn
ed, Dr. S. C. Oliver introduced the following resoli
tions, prcfuced by eloquont and appropriate remarks
Whereas, It is the object of every true hearse
American to see the Constitution of the United State
fuithfully administered, the people harmonious an
prosperous at home, and the nation honored and rc
spected abroad. And whereas it is not only the righ
but the imperative duty of every citizen to nidi;
these patriotic attainments; therefore, not only ii
furtherance of these, but to promote republican prln
ciples and establish them in all time to come, so fn
as our action can extend, be it resolved by this meet
1st. That wo have assembled expressly for the pur
pose of responding to, nnd co-operating with, ou
patriotic fellow-citizens who throughout the confc
deracy are presenting Oon. Zachnry Taylor, withoc
distinction of parties or geographical localities, as th
people's candidate for the next Presidency.
2. That the public services of Gen. Tavlor ha\
won renown for his country throughout tne work
and thut the moral grandeur of the man 1b manifaai
ed in his undaunted personal courage, in his heroi
achievements in all notlv contested battle fields, ii
his pre-eminent abilities in the creation unti applies
tion of means to overcome insurmountable obstacle!
In his personal sacrifices, and especially in his unwc
vering fidelity to his country and its constitution ur
dor every trying emergency?whilst his spotless rej
ututiou, his universal popularity, his acknowledge
I wisdom, his republican principles a.nd feelings, at
unostentatious humanity and private virtues, poii
him out as possessing the high qualifications thnt n
essential to constitute him the favorite of a grate!
and republican people for the highest office with
their gift.
3. That a fearful crisis,'threatening to involve tl
North and the South in geographical antagonist
(headed as it is by many of the master minds of tl
country, and aided by fierce faction and boding ci
for the future,) require a republican of the old scnoi
free from the shackles ana acrimony of party?01
who has fast hold on the heart of the nation?01
whose counsels and acknowledged wisdom and di
tlngulihed patriotism can unite the republican br
therhood together?whose overwhelming populari
can break down all the factions thnt would destr<
the constitution or dismember the Union. Such
man is "Old Rough and Ready!" In line, he is tl
man for the South, for the crisis, and for tno natio
4. That the chair appoint a committee of ten
prepare an address to the friends of Gen. Taylor, ai
invite them to assemble in a mass meeting on tne
day of ? next for the purpose of bringing out, at tl
proper time, an electoral Taylor ticket for this Stat

D* But why all this hubbub, asks the New York
i Courier, about the Wilniot Proviso! Is it altogether
is disinterested and philanthropical, as both its advocates
and opponents would have us believe 1 We
think not. We are of opinion that the question o!
lolitical power has too much to do with it?more
than mere consideration for the slave. Now, nothing
can be more manifest, than that the North may
not, and must not interfere with the domestic institutions
of the South. The institution of slavery us
- it exists, is guaranteed by the Constitution; and to
the old States, the poiiticul power appertaining to
l slavery is also guaranteed. But what part of the Constitution
guarantees to any now slave State a reprer
sentatiou based upon its sluves I Who will pretend,
( that even by the annexation of Texas, uny obligation
exists to permit property to be represented on
r the floor of Congress? There is no such compuct
* to be found any where; and if so, then Instead oi
fighting slavery and giving rise to the plea by the
South that we are interfering with its domestic in,
stitutions, let the (icople, as is their unquestionable
right, establish slavery where they please; but on the
I admission >pf every new State, let it be determined
that the basis of representation shall in all eases be
_ free white population. To this the South could not
1 injustice object, because as we have before remarky
ed, there exists no obligation to extend tho political
. advantages of slavery to new States. We may not
, interfere with the question of slavery as n domestic
n institution; but we may say that he will not hold oul
B rewards to its establishment in new Stutes. An
r abandonment of the Wilmot Proviso and tho adopR
tion of the course indicuted, would be attended with
(. happy results,
e
ir The Pendleton Messenger, says the Baltimore
? American, published in tho neighborhood of Mr. Cal
nouII h resiuence, uiuuung to me position ueiu oy uu
v South Carolina members of Congress, says they ur<
not regarded as strict party men, but that their indc
pendent position caused them und a few others to bi
designated, at the lu9t session, "the balance of poxcei
party." In this connection, referring to the Mexlcar
war and the probable issue between tho two parties
the Messenger remarks that "a third party will advo
cate the occupation of a definito lino until terms cai
be agreed upon." This intimation seems to poin
very distinctly to Mr. Calhoun and his friends?am
that tho more especially because of Mr. Calhoun'
position on that very point assumed at the last ses
sion of Congress.
Tub War and its Fruits.?We arc not, says th
Petersburg (Vu.) Gazette, among those whodcnounc
the present "as an unjust and unrighteous wur."On
the contrary, we believe that the U S. might lmv
Hogged Mexico ut any time, within tho last twent
years, and both right und justice would have sunt
tioned the proceeding. That nation had forfeited a
claims to our forbcnrnnce long before the annexatio
of Texas, and that measure was made the occasioi
but was not good cause, for the commencement i
hostilities. We do not quarrel, then, wirh the At
ministration about tho right or justice of bringing o
this war, but in regard to tho expediency of the
step!
g
ir The recent movement in Kentucky, of wlpch Mi
{m Clay is the author, is destined to ugitate the whol
country powerfully. Let Mr. Clay advance one ste
farther in the right path and give unconditional fret
' do in to his slaves, and, old us he is, and defeated n
ho often hus ,beon, he may yet reach tho goal r
which he hus long aimed, and triumph over nis oji
ponents. Such an example from win would te
powerfully against the slave system of the South, an
; do much to give joy to every lover of the free institu
d tions of this republic. Without doing it, he can nt
s ver be President of these United States,
d [Boston Whig.
- We have hoard it frequently said of late that Mi
1 Clay does actually intend to emancipate all his slave*
n but even if he does entertain any such intention, w
. arc sure that It is not based upon the consideratioi
r thrown out by the Boston Whig. He could have ha
~ the Presidency long since, if he had stooped to it, an<
we do not believo that he is going, at the close c
r life, to beg it at the hands of the advocates of Negrc
!- Freedom, oven if they could give it to him by an ac
it propitiatory ol their hostile sentiments.

,e Trlf.oraphic Enterprise.?Prof. Botsford, say
1, the Parkersburg, Vu., Gazette, passed through Pai
I- keraburg, lost floturdiiy, on hio return from a gran

The attention of our reader* will be*rr? ?i?<dH *
the confidential circular which will he found in aim

not have given it any countcnunce. The numerous '
friends ot General Taylor will take fire at thloaretvt 1
course towards 'the old man,' uud such bl<k?iin?
will grow out of it. Mr. Clay has declared thti la
will never again consent to ullow Ida name to b* ?
used for the Presidency unless he shall have saiiafar tory
evidence that it Is tho general wish of the poo
pie of tho United States, that he should b? a enndi ?

his claims will not be over looked. One evil effect
wc are sure will grow out of this secret circular General

[Correspondence of the Charleston Courier.) '
j 1 - Nisw York, Nov. 15,1847.
r To-day tho topic of discourse in the streets and
! counting rooms is Mr. Clay's speech, an abstract of
which reached the city yesterday afternoon, and was
. published this morning, not quite forty-eight hours i
1 after it was delivered, having in that time travelled
t some thousund miles over the Telegraph wires !~
\ What effect will it have on his prospects for the Pre8
slHcncy? Will ho now benominuted by the Whigs?
These uro the questions eagerly asked, both by his
friends and his opponents. The general impression
seems to be that he has made n very judicious move,
iifi fur nx Rpniirtnnr flip INTortliprn intprust imps. hut mi
c 0110 appears lo expect thul ho con be elected. Kven
_ hie warmest admirers feel that defeat and his name
c have been too often, und too closely connected lo
v hope for triumph in his behalf.
j| 5j"Souic politicians, suys the Richmond Ropublicun,
seem to look upon tho poople and parties as
j mere feudal retainers who belong to tho flag of this
or that chieftain, and are bound to buckle on their
l_ armor, and march at the back of tlioir vuliunt lord
whenever his bugle sounds to arms. We rather sus,
( pect tills is a mistaken view of things, when applied
to Whigs or .to freemen of uny kind. As great a man
us iB Henry Clay, he might well deprecate any friendship
which would prefer him to the success of the
L, cause ho represents. And so, too, with Gen. Scott,
p who, however, has nover hud any thing liko tho prominenco
of Henry Clay, Judge McLean, and others,
8 with llie Whig party. The best rule is to go for the
[' country und its good, looking upon this or that man
|| us important only so far as ho is ablo to work out tile
d salvation of the nation.
!" Gon. Taylor in Tennessee.?In Tennessc, the
Memphis Enquirer says, we may confidently assert
Gen. Taylor is llio choice of the entire Whig party,
and will be supported by large numbers of the mode^
rnto-minded and patriotic of the democrats. We do
n not believe that tiny conventions or caucusses are nc^
cessary in the coming Presidential contest. Tho
j people in every quarter of the Union have Bufiiciont
ly indicated their preference; and it behooves every
genuiuc republican to see to it that they are not
cheated and tricked out of that preference by selfish
aspirants through the chicanery of the convention
Bystem?a system always lisblo to objection for its
abuses, and at the preaont juncture wholly unneccs8
snry.

d Boston Cocaiss.?This journal contained, says
8 the Boston Post, n few days since, a Memorial of
c Unitarian Ministers and Laymen, now circulating
9 for signatures, to bo presented to Congress, in oppob'
Bition to the Mexican war. The closing remark of
u the editor in regard to it is penned with his usual
n spirit, and contains as much truth and good sense as
ie could well be condensed into so short a space. Here
18 it is :
l. "This may be well enough as an expression of the
111 sentiments of those who signed the memorial; but as
to any effect it may have on those to whom it is addressed*
the memorialists might as well 'earnestly
lff pray Congress and the Executive' to cut their own
!y throats
lc There is one point, says the Louisville Courier, in
ot Mr. Clay's resolutions in which there seems to be an
8" inconsistency with his former views on an important
le occasion; and as we have already laid beforo our
readers Mr. Clay's views of Mr. Madison's seizure
of the disputed territory between the Perdido und the
tt* Mississippi rivers, we cannot think it important to
lir wait for the speech in explanation of Mr. Clay's reasons
for thinking Mr. Madison right in doing whai
is impolitic and unconstitutional in Mr. Polk.
ly Patriotism or Printers.?Probably no single
ie trade has supplied moro men for the war than that of
id printers. Hundreds in all parts of the country have
te abandoned the composing stick for tho shooting stick.
i- Gon. Scott had some forty printers in one regiment,
s- If the war continues, American publishers will have
to import a fresh lot of journeymen from England.
10 Wo learn, says the Louisville Courier, that N. L.
ie Finnel and John B. Cochran propose to publish a
daily paper at Lexington, Kentucky, to be called the
at "Kentucky Atlas." The Atlas will bo docldedly Whig,
le and will support for the Presidency the nominee of
rc the Whig National Convention.

18 thinks that a great stream of bullion would flow in,

"Our smooth shining dollars and eagles lioaring

* tOr- A certain distinguished minister says, that the only
( time he was ever guilty of laughing in the pulpit, his risiJ
bilities were excited in this manner: The day was some^
whnt cold, nnd there whs no flro in the church. A man
with very red hair sat in the congregation, and behind him
a mischievous looking boy, who held his finger in the glowing
hair of the aforesaid gentleman, turning it about occa)
sionally, as a blacksmith would a nail*rod in his fire;
then placing It upon his knee, hammered It, in imitation of
the process of making a Korse-shoe nail.
