A woman of four generations, she was a vivacious girl when Napeleon was first consul ; she saw Webster, Clay, and Calhoun enter upon their public careers, and outlived the last survivor of them by mere than a quarter of a ceHtury. Ne ether American woman, save perhaps the wife of the first president, has exercised se great an influence in affairs of state She was, se te speak, part and parcel of two administrations, actively present during one, and a strong primary motive-power towards the ether. She could leek back en the stirring events of nearly ninety years, and te the "all which I saw" she might without egotism have added "part of which I was. " Her life has been a succession of romances, as incredible as any set down in fiction. Indeed, the romancer who should take the daughter of an Irish tavern keeper, raise her te the highest station in the land, endue her with the power te break up a cabinet and create a new ad ministration, and send her te be flattered in foreign courts, would be charged, with having pictured the impossible. Yet this is the literal record of her life. Mrs. Eaten has been compared te Madame Bonaparte. Beyond the facts that both married above their stations, both carried abroad the prestige of Ameri can womanly beauty, and both ended their days in comparative obscurity, there is little resemblance. Madame Bonaparte owed her brief honors te a .temporary re lation with royalty which she had neither the power te maintain nor the heart te re gret, save in se far as its less hurt her ambition. She was merely gilded by the magic of the Bonaparte legend ; while Mrs. Eaten, by sheer force of native wit and will, net only wrought out her own social destiny, but had much te de with the for tunes of ethers. Pretty Peggy O'Neill was new a United States senator's wife. A few weeks later, when by reason of General Jacksen's clan nish friendship General Eaten was made secretary of war, she found herself placed among the ladies of the cabinet placed, but net recognized. The ladies tefused te call en her. At once General Jacksen took the matter up in his usual het way. During the first months of his administra tion he thought of little else save devising ways and means by which he might silence the calumniators of Mrs. Eaten. He made his secretary's life a burden te him with correspondence. The registcis of New Yerk hotels were ransacked te refute slanders. Mrs. Eaten's cnaracter was gravely discussed in cabinet meetings. The pastor of the church which the presi dent attended imprudently appeared and testified against her, the only result being the less of his presidential parishioner. Foreign clerical aid was imported, and church leagued with state te crush her whom it evidently looked upon as the " scarlet woman " of the administration. The cabinet was divided into two oppos ing factions, and the line of division stretched down through both houses of Congress, and extended throughout the entire country. There is a strong parallel between Mrs. Eaten and the Countess of Blcssingten. Beth sprang from the same Celtic stock, and owed their eventful careers greatly te that sparkling vivacity and native wit that are a heritage of race, Beth studied and mastered the art of pleasing, and both pos pes sessessed in net unequal degree the play of fancy, quickness of apprehension, close ness of observation, and readiness of le partee which make a woman queen of the salon. Beth were married young, and were early left widows ; a second husband seemed te have been only waiting the de mise of the first, and in each case it was the second marriage which brought for tune and position. Beth were daugh ters of the people, and after brilliant for fer fer tune met reverses. Mrs. Eaten never wrote books ; but I fancy she had quite as much power of analysis and satire as went into Lady Blessington's society novels, and that both women were endowed with intuitive powers and quickness of appre hension rather than with real intellectual ability. But probably the one point above all ethers in which they most strongly re sembled each ether was in the influence which each exercised in an eminent degree ever men and women far superior in intel lect te herself. Stilson Hutckins in Inter national Review for Feb., 1880. Facts and Fancy Hew a Gusher Wrete About Jsnny Llnd and Uew a Practical Han Writes. In a gushing article upon a great singer of the past generation, the Louisville Courier-Journal says : ' Jenny Lind's hair was a marvel of beauty, and it framed a face which one never can forget. When this beautiful creation left the United States she had married little Goldschmidt. Did anybody ever explain hew she hap pened te fall in love with that foxy little pianist ? When the steamer left for Liver pool we forget hew many hundreds of Jenny Lind's admirers came down te see her off. The wharf was jammed. People steed en boxes and barrels. We shall never forget the closing act. Iligh upon the wheel-house the Lind steed, as rav ishingly lovely as the Venus Anadyeraene from the blue sea waves. The wind was blowing down the bay, and caressed her loose hair, which looked like an aureole in the sunlight. Her dress, stirred by the wind, clung about her form, and with one hand she waved her adicux and pressed her handkerchief te her face, for she was weeping. New, a beautiful woman in tears is a sight te melt the hearts of tyrants, and en that oc casion it might be written in the stereo type way, ' there was net a dry eye in the house,' except the little eyes of the dimin utive Goldschmidt, who steed besu'e the glorious woman he had wen, with his arms folded tightly across his breast, the lanceo lancee lated ends of his long yellow mustache bending te the stiff breeze, and his gaze fixed upon the raaintepmast of a neighbor ing vessel. Emotionless was little Otte Goldschmidt ; hard and stony looked Otte Goldschmidt by the side of that warm, pal pitating aggregation and concentration of female beauty, whose sympathetic nature, ever se attractively manifested in her sing ing, yielded te the circumstances and in dulged in passieuate tears. Se she disap peared among the harbor mists and throng ing vessels out into the bay, out into the musical ocean." And the St. Leuis Republican responds : " All of which would seem te indicate that Jenny Lind was a wonderfully beautiful woman, when the unvarnished truth is that she was uncommonly plain, even in youth. She had blonde hair, net as fash ionable then as new, and it 'framed' a genuine Scandinavian face the face of a Swedish peasant eirl who would net be a belle in her own country. High and well-de fined cheek bones, a very substantial nose, and an uncommonly large mouth were its most distinctive features. Yet the face was charming, because se honest and open; se full of sympathy, generosity, kindness, and all womanly virtues. Jenny Lind was no mere ' the "Venus Anadyo Anadye mene ' than Julius Caesar was, but she was net only a splendid sengstress, but a noble woman which all splendid sengtresscs are net. The nearest we have had te her in true womanliness was Parcpa Resa. Her marriage was a love-match. Singular as it may seem te the Courier-Journal writer, she did ' fall in love with the foxy little pianist,' and as far as heard from has never regretted it. He made her a geed husband - though we believe through bad invest ments he lest the most of her hard earned money and she has been te him a faith ful and affectionate wife. Jenny Lind was the first of the first-class prima donnas te visit this country, and she has left be hind a mere graceful fame than any of her successors ; a fame in which the artist's merit and the woman's character are se closely and happily blended that we cannot separate them if we would, and would net if we could. An Unwritten Chapter of the Late War. The year 1861 closed gloomily for the cause of the Union. The army of the Po tomac under McCIellan had nei made the expected move ; Masen and Slidell had been surrendered; Congress was surround ed with the gravest difficulties. Early in 1862 Burnside's fleet was wrecked, and Cameren's resignation made room for a new secretary of war, of whose capacity and energy the people had no acurate knowledge. Great expectations were en tertained of important movements and successes in what was popularly called the West, but of what might be planning or happening in the far West, in these re mote teiriteiies which were net even cer rectly laid down en the maps, net one per son in one hundred thousand, from the president down, had a thought or a care ; though a most anxious solicitude would net have been misplaced, as shall forth with appear. ' Surveying further the situation in the far Seuth and West, we find in the first that the rebels had complete possession of the great state of Texas. Twiggs had trai torously surrendered all the troops under his command, with forts, arms, ammuni tion and supplies of all kinds, and many of the men had been paroled. This vast re gion afforded an admirable base for ex tended military operations, and it was net long before advantage was sought te be taken of it, in the autumn of 1861. It was somewhat as fellows that the Confederate leaders argued the matter. Assuming that they could held their own east of the Mississippi, a move could be made westward of that river having every premise of success and which if successful would give immense material and moral advantage te the Seuth. The plan was nothing less extensive than the capture of California and the subjection of five ether states and territories. Fer the execution of this brilliant enter prise the pregramme was simple. A pow erful column should match by El Pase into New Mexico, defeat or flank Canity at Feit Craig, and occupy Santa Fe. Next would come Fert Union, containing an ad miral arsenal and supply depot, fitted in geed season by Jb leyd with a most conve nient stock of arms, ammunition and stores. Thence the march forward would be easy, and the prizes would fall rapidly into the hands of the troops. Indians and Mormons were probable and valuable allies. The sure result could hardly fail te be the complete and speedy control of a rich state, a splendid sea-coast, and forts from which men-of-war and privateers could issue te sweep the Pacific. This would hasten recognition by European na tions, would lead te the breaking of the Atlantic blockade by England and France and then the end would seen come. What, then, were the weak points in the plan? They were three. First, the rebels made the mistake, which they re peated ever and ever again, of attaching importance te the support te come from disaffected people and districts where the general sentiment was loyal. Second,they were hopelessly misled about the senti ments of the Mexican population of New Mexico, and forget or ignored the ani mosity born years before of the Texan Santa Fe expedition, and still deeply rank ling. Third, they made a fatal miscalcula tion in underrating the stern patriotism, the unflinching courage, and the fierce energy of the men who were laying the foundation of our "Centennial state" of Colerado while braving privation and hardship in the search for geld. That these events were net known and have net since been known in the East is hardly surprising, in view of the fact that ether matters of transcendent im portance, far nearer home, were con temporaneous with them. Fert Henry was taken en February 6, Roanoke Island en February 8,- and Fert Donelseu en February 16. The battle of Pea Ridge ended en March 8, the Monitor fought the Mcrrimac en March 9, and the great engagement at Shiloh occurred en April 6 and 7. Probably net one in ten thousand suspected that such a threaten ing movement was making in the rear of our armies ; and it would have been equal ly surprising and terrible .te have heard suddenly that a junction had been effected by the rebels with the Mormons, and that mischief had already been done which could be repaired, if at all, only at the cost of hundreds of lives and millions of money. Instead of this the bright days of May saw Sibley, disheartened and demoralized, resting at that same Fert Bliss from which he had marched with fell purpose four months before. The valley of the Rie Grande would knew him no mere, and he doubtless sought his accustomed consola tion in the flowing bowl. International Review for February, 1880. Augustus A. Hayes. m m A Torrent of Peat. The Falkland Islands Phenomena and Its Cause. When the brief statement first appeared, a few months age, that a town in the Falkland islands had narrowly escaped de struction by a flood of peat,thc story seem ed incredible. Authentic details, however, have lately reached England which leave no doubt of the fact. The phenomenon is believed te be unprecedented, and has served te attract the attention of men of science once mere te the archipelago of treeless islands which Darwin explored half a century age, and which constitute Great Britain's southern colonial possessions. The Falkland group is situated some 300 miles from the eastern coast of Seuth America, opposite the entrance te the Strait of Magellan. Twe of the islands, known as the East and West Falkland, are much larger than the test, and upon the east side of the former is Stanley, the chief town. There seems te be some in fluence in the climate peculiarly favorable te the production of peat, for. says Mr. Darwin, " almost every kind of plant, even the coarse grass which covers the whole surface of the land, becomes con verted into this substance ; scarcely any situation checks its growth ; some of the beds are as much as twelve feet thick, and the lower part becomes se solid when diy that it will hardly burn." Thus, it will be understood, a peaty soil is characteris tic of the whole country. Just back of the town of Stanley, and about ?,000 feet inland, rises a range of heights which are surmounted by a pla tea'., upon which rests a deep beg of peat. Curiously enough, the thickest deposits of peat in the Falklands occur en the hill sides or hill tops. In ether places the peat seldom exceeds a few feet in depth. The subsoil is a dense yellow clay impenetrable by water, and in the Stanley beg already mentioned this is between twenty-four and thirty feet below the surface. On November 26, 1878, a southeasterly storm of wind and rain set in at Stanley, and the rainfall from that time until mid night of the 30th is estimated te have been two inches. Then the peat beg en the heights above the settlement gave way. "The black oozy mud," writes a naval officer te the Royal geographical society, "rolled down the hill with a momentum which neither the iron stanchions around the reservoir nor the barriers by the sea could withstand. It broke through the backs of wooden houses, inundated the rooms, and obliged the inhabitants, rude ly awakened from sleep, te flee for safety ; a few pigs and calves were swallowed up in the irresistible stream, but fortunately no human lives were lest." The velocity of the stream was net noted at first, but in the morning, after its force was almost ex pended, it was still moving into the sea at the rate of about half a mile an hour. Dr. Jehn Mulvany, staff surgeon in the British navy, was an eye-witness of the phenomenon, and attributes it te the action of the heavy fall of rain upon the peat. He estimates that ever 500,000 gallons of water fell into the beg en the four days preceding the avalanche. The impermeable yellow clay underneath would net permit it te sink through, and finally this enormous quan tity of water, mingling with the peat, burst the weakest side of the beg and rolled down the seaward slope of the heights above the town in the remarkable torrent we have described. The entire absence of trees in these islands has been remarked by all visitors te the Falklands. In this respect they offer a striking contrast te Terra del Fucge, which, though only 300 miles distant, is clothed with forest. According te Mr. Darwin, the largest bush in the Falklands is scarcely as tall as the British gorse, the best fuel being a little bush resembling heath, which burns quite readily even when green. Dr. Mulvany suggests that the treeless character of the colony is due te the heavy yellow clay already mentioned The tender rootlets cannot grew in se im penetrable a formation. DRY GOODS, JiC.

Last May a physician called my disease Eczema Rodent, spots appeared en my hands, head and face, eyes became much inflamed and granulated, causing at length impaired sight. Internal and external remedies were pre scribed by a leading physician for six months, was then Introduced te another, and a consul tation of several leading physicians was had, when a definite plan was decided upon, but all te no purpose. After following advice inr four months with out any permanent cure, I bought two bottles of Cuticuka Rkselvkkt, two boxes of Cuticuka, and some Seap, and can testify with great pleas ure te the eflect they liave had la my case, in eight days being nearly cured.
