This remarkable woman closed her earthly career in this city on Thursday last, after a long and severe illness, and was quietly buried yes terday. But few women have seen so many ups and downs In life as she, or been obliged to battle with human nature in so many forms as it has fallen to her lot. She has known society in all its varied forms at one time greeted with ap plause from a multitude of votaries, and then again being obliged to flee in disguiso" from the enraged populace. Lola Montez was of Irish and Moorish-Spanish descent, and was born in tho city of Lim erick, Ireland, in 1824. Her father was a captain in the forty-fourth regiment of the English army, and a son of Sir Edward Gil bert. Her mother was on Oliver, and a de scendant from Count do Montalvo, who at one time possessed immense estates in Spain. The Montalvos were of Moorish origin, and emi grated to Spain during the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella tho Catholic. Her father was only about twenty and her mother fifteen when they were married, and Lola was born during the second year of their marriage. At her bap tism she was christened Marie Dolores Eliza Hosanna Gilbert; she was afterwards called Do lores, from which she derived her name Lola. But a short time after her birth, tho forty fourth regiment, in which her father was cap tain, was ordered to India. After a long and tedious voyage, tbey lauded at Calcutta, and remained there nearly three years, when tho army was ordered to Dinapore, some distance in the interior, by the Governor General, Lord Hastings. They had not been on tho Ganges but a short time before the cholera broke out in their ranks with terrible violence and the father of Lola was one of its first victims. Tho widow Gilbert, being young and hand some, soon found herself the centre of attrac tion. She, however, remained in widowhood but a short time, and was led to the altar the second time by Captain Craigie, of the same regiment as young Gilbert, and a warm friend of the latter. Her husband hud committed her and little Lola to his charge on his death-bed. Soon after the marriage, Craigie was advanced to the rank of Major. At the age of six, Lola was sent to Europo, and placed in the charge of Major Craigie's father, residing at Montrose, in Scotland. The latter had been Provost of Montrose for nearly a quarter of a century, and every event con nected with his household was a matter of pub lic noto. The arrival of Lola was, therefore, soon known to all Montrose. For some cause or other, her parents obtain ed the idea that she was being petted too much : consequently, she was removed to London, and placed in the family of the Commander-in-chief of the Bengal forces, Sir Jasper Nichols. With the daughters of Sir Jasner Nichols she was sent to Paris to school, and after spending several years there, Miss Fanny Nichols andj young Lola were sent to uatn to hmsn tneir education. She remained there about eighteen months, at the expiration of which time her mother returned from India. Lola was then about fourteen years of age. She was informed by her mother that she had come home to take her back to India. The enormous amount of dress-making caused suspicion in young Lola's mind, and, upon further inquiries, she was in formed by Captain James that her mother hnd promised her in marriage to Sir Abraham fiant tone, she informed her mother that she would never consent. A family quarrel fol lowed, and in her despair she appealed to Cap tuin James for assistance.' On the next day the latter eloped with her to Ireland, where Captain James's family resided. After a great deal of trouble, they were finally married. They had been married but ahout eight months when Captain James left for India to join the'army. Spending a season at Calcutta, the army was ordered to Kurwal, in tho interior, where, but a few months after their arrival, her husband eloped with a Mrs. Lorncr, leaving her, ns she termed herself, "a little grass widow" nt the mercy of her friends. Lola was imme diately sent back to Calcutta, where her mother resided. Her reception and treatment there was somewhat cruel. Sho was locked up in her chamber by her mother until a certificate was procured liom a physician that slio was in ill health, and must be sent to Europe. Her stepfather showed his disapproval of this treat ment by handing her a check for a thousand pounds as she stepped on board of tho vessel to sail for Europe. Those who had charge of her on this voyago were directed to place her in the charge of Mr. David Crngie, residing at Perth, Scotland. But upon her arrival at Lon don she refused to go there, and went to reside with a gifted lady by the name of Fanny Kelly. She decided upon becoming an actress, but being deficient in English, it prevented her from making an immediate appearance. It was thereforo settled that she should become a dan seuse. Studying that art for four mouths, under the instruction of a teacher, she paid a brief visit to the Montalvos in Spain, when sho re turned to London, and made her debut at Her Majesty's Theatre. As soon as her mother received tho news of that event, She put on mourning, and sent out funeral cards to all her friends, and has to this day refused to see or cominunicato with her. The debut was considered a successful one, but owing to some financial difficulty the engage ment was broken off, and she soon after ap peared at tho ltoyul Theatre in Dresden. Her appearance there created a grout furor, and she at once became a favorite of tho royal families. Leaving Dresden, sho made a suc cessful tour nt both Berlin and Wnrsaw, at tracting marked attention from the royal fam ilies wherever she appeared. At tho latter place, on being' hissed, she rushed to tho foot lights, and declared that they came from the director, because sho had refused gifts from his master. For this expression sho was obliged to leave Warsaw, and. it was only through tho interlercnco of the French consul that Her nr rost was prevented. Her next appearance was at St. Petersburg. On leaving the latter place, she visited Paris, and, forming the acquaintonco of Dujarrior, editor of La 1'resse, and one of tho leaders of the republican party, in his society formed a testa for politics, and learned from him to hato tyranny and oppression in every form that it showed itself, and became an enthusiastic re publican. She pledged herself In marriage to Dujarrier, but before the day fixed for tho nup tials her betrothed was killed In a duel by Beauvcllon. After this melancholy affair she left Paris for Bavaria, and again appeared on the theatri cal stago at Munich. Her manners and origi nality attracted ,the notice of King Louis, who, ascertaining she was versed in political matters, received her counsels, and promoted her to the nobility as a reward for her politcal services. She soon after became Countess of Lansfeld, with an income of seventy thousand florins per annum. In this influential position she used every effort to put in practice those principles that she had learned of Dujarrier. Her first effort was to induce the King to abolish the Ministry, which had stood for a quarter of a century, and prevailed upon him to form a new Cabinet without any regard to tho nobility, tak ing them from the ranks of the people. This net aroused a furious rage against her, not only in Bavaria, but throughout Germany. With a storm gathering about her head, she continued her reformatory movements, to the great con sternalinn of the tyrants that had grown fat with power. Her next effort was an attempt to intioduce the Code Napoleon as laws of the land. This was more thanfjhe enraged nobility would benr. All manner of devices were re sorted to by the Jesuits, as well as the nobility, to get rid of her. They tried coaxing, bribing, and then threatening, but to no avail. At length a revolution broke out, and she, finding herself unable to resist it, left the country disguised as a peasint girl, and sought refuge in the land of William Tell. Her career in Bavaria brought down upon her head the most bitter calumnies from the Jesuits, which has followed her, poisoning the atmosphere wherever sho went, fpllowing her even to this country. Remaining in Switzer land a short time, she visited tho King of Ba varia disguised in boy's clothing. Returning to Switzerland, she hastened off to London, and afterwards to Paris, where she resided a num ber of years. Shattered in fortune, and broken in health, she turned her attention to this coun try, and found her way to our shores in the Same ship that brought Kossuth. About two months ago, Bhe, then being ill, came to this city, and, by invitation, took up her abode with Mrs. Buchanan, the wifo oCthe celebrated florist, who knew Lola in Scotland, they being in their younger days school com panions. Lola gradually grew worse, although tho best of medical skill was employed, and everything supplied her calculated to alleviate her sufferings. About two weeks ago, she be gan to sink, and, being aware of the fact, her whole time was occupied in devotional exer cises. But, in this respect, anterior to the pe riod we allude to, she exhibited a marked change on her previous life. Her whole desiro seemed bent toward engaging in religious con versation with everybody with whom she came in contact, and in them sho exhibited a deep knowledge on the logical subjects. During the last week of her life she sent for and was i attended by the Rev. Dr. Hawks, of Calvary Church, aud ys also attended by members of the congregation of the church, and to them, while engaged in religious conversation, she exhibited a thorough repentance for her past erratic life. On Thursday, the day she died, Dr. Hawks was at her bedside, and when asked by tho clergyman if sho still thought sho had found forgiveness with her Saviour, not being able to speak, she nodded assent. She was then asked if sho thought she hud found full forgive ness for her past life, and she promptly signi fied, the affirmative. After her death, the kind friends who attended her in her sickness spared no pains to make the funeral ns respectable as possible, and, indeed, we may say it was all that an event of this peculiar naturo could be. The funeral took place yesterday. Tho Epis copal funeral servico was at Mrs. Buchanan's house, and the funeral cortege, which was quite large, and attended by some of our most re spectable citizens and their families, proceeded to Greenwood, where the body was interred. The Cavitai, ok the Southern Rei-ciimc. Tho location of the Federal capital of the South ern Confederation will bo a matter of no small contention, we fancy. We-rcmark that this dis cussion of the matter has already commenced by"articles in sundry papers of different Statos. The unwholesomo climate of New Orleans will be an insuperable bar to its claims as a capital site, and beside it is not so convenient a point as Mobile bay affords for the great body of States northwest of us a location on tho At lantic coast would have no claims to ccntrnlity by its .remoteness from the existing and the prospective States of the West and Southwest the direction in which we must "expand" in tho progress of events. Mobile is " to a degree," tho convenient centre of the preseut and the geographical ceutre of the future, is a seaport susceptible of impregnablo defence, is healthful and in every respect eligible for the honor of being elected the capital city of the South. If Mobile bo not so chosen, no seaport will be, we think, aud an interior capital, probably within Alabama, and probably Montgomery, will be decided upon. The capital will scarcely bo lo cated north of Alabama, or east of Alabama, or west of Alabama, and certainly not.soulh of Alabama. Mobilo is smith enough, west enough, east enough and north enough.
