G 'THE 'DAILY &V Ejzsxrm TfiliEQK&PH 'PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, MAY 25, 1871 SOCIAL QUEENS OF LONDON. ldy Blessington to Lady Palm erst on. An English writer says: "About forty years go the fashionable system of London society might be said to hare consisted of three separate spheres, each of them brilliant, fas cinating, and famous. Over one presided Lady Holland; over the second, the Countess of Charleville; and over the third the most celebrated, perhaps, of the glittering trio Marguerite, Countess of Blessington. Amid a multitude of differences in their charac ters, ambitions, and careers, these ladies, whose names are now historical, still pos sessed certain points in common. It was the object alike of each to adorn the social world in which she was acknowledged su preme with all that was best and choicest of the wit, intellect, and beauty of the day. There was an identity in the mission which each of these three titled dames con sidered she was destined to fulfil, and if there was any disparity in the results which each separately secured, there was at least no antagonism between the means that were employed. Doubtless the aspira tions of Lady Holland, Lady Charleville, and Lady Blessington were primarily selfish; but they were imbued with no small measure of generosity and be neficence as well. Each sought to be solo and exclusive arbitresa in her own world; but each knew that it was only by harmony and union among her subjects that her par amount sovereignty could be achieved. If no despotism could be more absolute than tbat exercised by the empress of Seatnore Place or the queen of Holland House, their followers could have experienced no form of social tyranny more entirely productive of comfort to themselves. The authority of those queens of society rested upon a basis of mutual tolerance and esteem, and enforced as the prime regulating principles of inter course npon the various members of the crowds who periodically thronged the "salon" in Kensington or the drawing-room in May fair. To rally round her all the available representatives of wit, intellect, fame, and to elicit from every social atom, whatever its kind or value, any spe cies of talent latent within that was one object held equally in view by Lady Bles siDgton, Lady Holland, and Lady Charle rille. To endeavor to bring about a pleas ant rapprocltcment between men of letters, science, or art, hitherto unacquainted, es tranged, or isolated to establish between them kindly and humane sentiments, or to restore those sentiments when they had once been broken that was the second aspiration which these social potentates cherished. Thus the salons of Holland House, Seamore Place first, and the Gore House afterwards, and Chaileville House exhibited the joyful results of a happy nnion between the spirit of personal ambition and general philan thropy. If it is disputed which could best lay claim to the latter character, it must be remembered tbat, as a matter of fact, Holland House and Charleville House gradually assumed a special political complexion. This could never be said of the drawing room of the Countess of Blessington. It re tained its features of brilliant catholicity to the last. "It may perhaps seem strange . that the present time (should be so entirely withoat anything like adequate antetypes of these famous ladies, with their supreme and un disputed social sway, their glittering and historical social rendezvous. The late Lady Falmerston was perhaps the last of a race of aristocratio dames that has now become extinct, and her death marked the close of an era in political sociology. The famous "Wednesday evenings which used to be cele brated in the salons of Cambridge House take us back to an epoch which has' con clusively vanished from among us, and are about the most recent instances we have of direct drawing-room influence upon political life. The social sove reignty exercised by the distinguished ladies whom we have hitherto had in view, was, it must be remembered, a sovereignty resting on a basis of personal ability, accom plishments, and charms. Unless Lady Bles sington and Lady Holland had been conspicu ous for the perfection of their manner and the graceful spell of their conversation, they would have found no willing host of subjects to give them their allegiance. If society now is without the social queens of a past regime, it is surely in no slight degree beoause those who might be its queens have not the abili ties requisite for sovereignty. Beamore Plaoe, the Villa Belvidere at Naples, the Palazzo Negrone at Rome, Gore House, Kensington all these have successively been immortalized by the brilliant countess, to the first of whose residences as above enumerated we now propose intro ducing the reader. It is the height of the London season some forty years since, and we are standing in a long library in the mansion of Beamore Place, whose sides are alternately covered with' rows of magnificently bound books and gorgeously framed mirrors. The window, which is deep and runs the entire breadtn ot the room, opens npon Hyde Park. There was no other room in Europe which could boast of witnessing more brilliant reunions than those which were then in the habit of frequently assembling in that library in Seamore Place. Subsequently Gore House, to which the Countess of .blessington re moved in 183(5. was oraced by a company more distinguished, perhaps, than that which met at her first residence, but not more brilliant or attractive. "If we would endeavor to picture Lady Blessington to ourselves at her brightest aud her best, we must go to her first and least showy of London residences. It is one of her reception nights. She has received a favored few at dinner first, and now as the night comes on her rooms beoin to fill. The salon glitters with stars and is resplendent with orders of every kind. Not a nation ot the civilized world is without its representa tive. There are foreign counts who have achieved eminenoe, and who speak every Euro pean language, attaches, ambassadors, and princes. There stands the greatest capitalist in the world, the original, possibly, of SilonU of 'Coningsby' fame; and there, in groups at intervals around the apartment, are mat together all tnat is most euiiuent la every possible department and kiud of exonlleao and skill in England. Mr. Lylton Bulbar, who has just won his spurs by his novel 'Pelham,' enters with an attractive traukuess, and is received with etnprenxeinent by tan noble hostess. That speaker yonder wuh tu.i merry eye and the Bacchus head is Tam Moore, criticizing the 'personnel' of the Eo lith House of Commons and dwcusMu;.; tha condition of Ireland. 'The great peri 1 of Ireland's glory,' you may hear hiiu say, between 'B2 and '1)2, and it was a tium .vht a man almost lived with a pistol in his htud.' A volley f well-bred laughter dray your attention to another portion cf the room: you look up and yon see Theodore Hook, the Lucian Gay of 'Coningsby,' (a novel which, like the receipt for the famous Tomahawk Punch in 'viviaa Grey,' has jet to L developed;, with his band on Lord Canterbury's sleeve, narrating the incidents .of the Jast practical joke, or expatiating npon the theme of soma new political squib. A little bit to the left yon have Horace Smith, one of the authors of 'liejected Addresses,' playing rather an aside in the conversation, interpolating a pun or a witticism whenever he gets a chance, but more a liotener than a talker. There is a famous traveller just re turned from Constantinople, and there, Henry Bulwer (to-day Lord Darling) dismiss ing with great earnestness the lant speech of Daniel O'Connell. Scattered about the rooms are such men as Lord Lyndhurst, Sir Robert Peel, Lord Strangford, Sir Thomas Lawrenoe, Henry Luttrell the 'wit among lords, and the lord among wits' the Hon. W. It. Spen cer, and Captain Marry at." It may be observed as regards this picture that the society, both of Gore Rouse and Holland House, was almost exclusively that of the sterner sex. There were circum stances in the lives both of Lady Holland and Lady Blessington to account for this. I.Mr OR TA XTEXPERIMEXTS WITH G lV COTTOM AND G UXP 0 WDKlt. From the rail Mall Gazette. An important experiment was carried out a short time ago at the Iloyal Arsenal, Woolwich, to discover how far Abel's com pressed gun-cotton, which, as our readers are aware, is now being largely introduced into the service, is liable to explosion en masse by simple ignition, and whether the explosion or ignition of one case of gun-cotton would necessarily be atteaded with the explosion or ignition of adjacent cases. For the purpose of this experiment a quantity of compressed gun-cotton was packed in wooden cases, con taining 28 pounds each, which, as regards ex plosive power, is equivalent to about 112 pounds of gunpowder. In the first instance, one of these 28-pound cases, the lid of which was tightly screwed down, was ignited. There was a tudden burst of bright llame, which opened the box without destroying it, and without causing anything of the nature of an explosion. After this eight cases, each containing 28 lbs. of gun-ootton, and two cases containing each 28 lbs. of damp gun-cotton, were placed on the ground, and covered and surrounded by thirty-two more' boxes, each of which contained a quantity of sand equal in weight to 28 lbs. of gun-cotton. The object was to imitate as nearly as possible the condition of things in a magazine of gun-cotton, where a number of cases would bo piled together, and oua of them might be accidentally fired. The ij' ra tion of one box caused a sudden rush of bright flame, which penetrated through the pile, and was followed by another rush of lltine, due to the ignition of the contents of another box without any explosion. The result on examination proved to be only a partiul dis turbance of the pile on one side and the igni tion of the contents of only one box in addi tion to the box full of gun-cotton pur posely ignited. The gun-cotton in the six remaining oases had not been ignited. nor had the damp gun-cotton. If any one will take the trouble to consider what would have been the effect of exploding a barrel of gunpowder in the midst of seven other bar rels of gunpowder, closely packed and built up into a pile with other barrels, he will be able to appreciate the exceptional and very satisfactory behaviorof the gun-cotton in this experiment. Afterwards, a case of damp guu cotton was placed upon tba ground, on the top of it a box of dry gun-cotton, ths bottom of the box being thickly smeared with tar, end the box itself being surrounded with shavings. On this case another box of gun- cotton was placed; and tne wnole was sur rounded with boxes of damn gun-cotton and a number of boxes filled with sand. .The shavings were then ignited, and the fire com municated in a short time with the interior of the pile, the two casts of dry gun-cotton becoming soon partially enveloped in flame. Nothing further was observed for about a quarter of an hour, when there was a puff, a rush of name playing tnrough and about the pile, and-i-nothing more. There was no explosion, no disturbance even of the pile. It was now considered safe to ap proach the pile. On examination it appeared tbat no damage had been done beyond char ring or burning some of the boxes, charring the surface of the damp gun-cotton as it be came dried by the heat. It was supposed that both the boxes of dry cotton had been inflamed; but, some little time afterwards, while the debris was being colleoted, ' the second box of gun cotton, which had been burned through, and which had been mis taken for a box filled with sand, suddenly burst into flame without even injuring a man who was at the moment holding the box. When it is considered that the box full of gun-cotton represented 112 lbs. of gunpowder, this result is sufficiently remarkable. Those who witnessed this extremely in structive experiment an experiment which testifies in an unmistakable manner to the safety of properly made compressed gun- cotton in store and wno may nave tailed to appreciate the exact significance of the trial, can nanny ao Detter in an compare me re sults with those lately obtained on the Plum- stead Marshes with gunpowder. Uu tnis oc casion it was desired to establish wnetuer the statutory distance of twenty yards be tween the'danger sheds" of an ammunition factory, as laid down by tne uunpowder act, is suihcient to afford complete and adequate protection to the workpeople in sheds situate at tnis ' distance from a sued in wuicn 60 lbs. of powder (the maximum quantity permitted by law) may happen to explode. To determine this poiut, wuioii the Uome uthce had directed to be invest! gated in anticipation of the revision of the Gunpowder act, which we are gla 1 to hear is in contemplation, five lightly-built wooJeo sheds, such as might be employed in priva'e cartridge factories, had been erected at twenty yards distance from one another Fifty pounds of guupowder or less than the equivalent of half the quantity of gun-oot ton in one ot me cases in tue former exoen. ment was exploded in the central shed of ,; the group. The result was a violent explo sion which entirely destroyed the shed in which the explosion took place, and which blew the planks and timbers over a large area some or tne piauks being tarried to a distance of Mtventy.&ve j aids. The whole of the sheds were more or lesB shaken. A hirge plank was driven on end, like a projeoilti, through the sie of one of the hl'edn; aud it was clearly established that the distance of twwnty ynU prescribed by law is not suilioient to ad'ord hbholute immunity from danger to tha work people . in the adjacent hedx. The very dill rrent betavior of the two explosions was very reuiurkuble. This difference mitjht be evtn uiote strikingly illustrated by the igni tion of a case of guu-cottou in a oartrMge bbtd such as tbat w hi; h was completely de stroyed in the second experiment by a half barrel of gunpowder. If this trial were to be mada, we believe that the effect upon the shed in which the gun-cotton is exploded would be nil. DIVORCE NOTICES. H K I F F ' 8 OFFICE, FBlLADM.rmA. Mnv 10. 1S71. s notice.
