A late Parisian newspaper tells the
following story of a wealthy Englishman,
who may constantly be seen at the Grand
Opera, and the Italian Opera, and who
enjoys a great reputation, not only as
being a connoisseur of music, but further,
as being a great amateur of painting.
How the reputation was acquired, you
will presently see.
He was one of those Bedouin English
men, who live alternately in the European
capitals, except when they are on an oc
casional jaunt to Egypt, or to China, or
to India, or the Holy Land. He never
traveled alone; his wife was with him?
his bona Jide wife?for, notwithstanding
his errant life, 44 so apt to weaken one's j
morals, he had all the English respect
for the sex, and a trueEnglishman's love
for his wife. She was a beautiful woman,
[ one of those 44 keepsake" beauties, that
once seen, make a man dream forever. |
Her social success was very great in all I
the cities they visited.
In Rome, after being married some I
years, they became acquainted with a
German artist, of a good imputation, who, I
to his art, joined the learning of a Bene-1
dictine, and knew the ciiy of Rome as I
well as Winklemann or Visconti. The
German volunteeml to be their cicerone
in the Eternal C*?they gladly accepted I
the offer. Many were the hours they
passed in the museum of the capitol, in
the Vatican, in Sr. Peter s and in the de
lightful excursions they made in the en
virons of Rome.
The artist became in love with the
English lady; she reciprocated his affec
tion. The husband was a long time in
seeing the stain upon his honor. Several
months passed away before he perceived
it, for he was very much pleased with
the artist, and they had long been on the I
most intimate footing. Although stung
to the quick by such base faithlessness |
and gross violation of the laws of hospi-1
tality and friendship, he said nothing: he |
disliked scenes. He was nevertheless de
termined upon a complete revenge, and he
appealed to cooler reflection to furnish a
suitable punishment, as the passions are I
bad counsellors.
He lea Italy, and retired with his wife I ?
to England, saving nothing but cm revoir
to the artist. When he reached England, I;
he told his wife of the discovery he had I
made, and gave her back to her father's
hands. I >
He then returned to the continent !
alone, and visited Germany, Russia, and 1i
France, where he purchased a great I
many paintings. He then went to Italy, J
meanwhile coutinuing to purchase paint
ings, and at last?two years had now I *
passed away since their last meeting? !
he called on the German painter, who I
still lived in Rome, and demanded satis-11
faction from him.
His challenge was accepted, and the 1
?Englishman, according to the European |J
custom, being the oliended party, se-11
lected the weapons; he chose pistols. 1
During the past two years he practiced \
daily for several hours, and his known I
addresi with the pistol had become an C
unerring certainty of shot. He sent the J
shot to whatever point he wished it to
go. 1
The parties went to the ground ; they
were placed at thirty paoes apart, with 11
the privilege of advancing ten paces be-11
fore firing. The signal was given? I \
44One! two! fire!" |i
The lost word was hardly out of the t
second s mouth, when the Englishman 11
fired without moving. His antagonist's 11
pistol fell from his hand, and was dis-11
charged by the faU, the ball burying it- 1
self in the ground. The Englishman's i
bail had shattered the artist's wrist; an M
amputation was necessary ; his career of c
artist was ended?and forever. I c
A few day's after the amputation, thel 6
Englishman called on him, and without j r
noticing the angry reception he met, said I j
to the suffering artist:
" if you think that my vengeance isl c
satisfied with your shattered hand, and 11:
the wreck of your artist's career, you t
strangely underrate the agony of a de- e
ceived, dishonored husband. I have con-11
demned you to a life of vain regrets, to a 11
never-ending series of impotent sighs, to (
a total oblivion by all amateurs and his
torians of art."
44 O no, sir," interrupted the artist, his ]
face beaming with a ray of hope ; 44 the
last you cannot do. My Madonna at St. 8
Petersburg ; my Luther, at Berlin ; my }
Flight into Egypt, at Paris ; my " {
The Englishman interrupted him in
turn; I *
44 Spare me," said he, 44 the names of
your works; but look over this cata-|C
logue, and see if I have not the exact list 1
of them all ?" 1
4 ? Yes, they are all here, even the paint-1!
ing I finished the day before the duel." IJ
4? So I was persuaded. All the paint-1
ings in this catalogue are my property. 11
Being my property, I do with them what C
I please, and I please to burn them?aye, j
to burn every one of them, that yourl
name shall be efiaced from the glorious I *
roll of artists. In two hours from this i
time, your toil, your conceptions, your !
skill, will be as completely effaced from
this world as the lines which the urchin I
traces in the sand are effaced by the h
rising tide. Fire is as destructive as I (
water." <
In vain the poor artist begged for mer- i
cy. The wronged husband was insensi- i
ble to his supplications; and in two 1
hours the servant brought to the artist's .
room a large earthen vessel, commonly 11
used to contain oil, filled with ashes. It I <

the Church. From France, H. E. the
Cardinal Gousset has already left for
Rome, and has taken the way of Switzer
land. The Bishop of Mans has arrived
in Paris, on his way to the Holy City,
and is to leave in the course of the week.
The Cardinal Archbishop of Mechlin has
arrived in Paris. Several Irish Catholic
Gelates, and among them the Arch
shops of Armagh and Dublin, are also
at present in Paris, and on their way for
Rome. Ireland is the only Catholic
country in the world from which more
than two prelates have been invited by
name. But we learn from Rome that a
great number of bishops are expected,
and that the presence of other prelates
than those officially invited, will be se?n
with pleasure. All the bishops will take
part according to their rank in the pro
jected grand general assembly. The as
sembly will be preceded by private meet
ings composed, we are told, solely of the
prelates specially invited. It is Mgr.
Antici Mattei, who has been nominated
Secretary of the Consistorial Congrega
tion. Amongst the French prelates who
are to go to Rome to take part ;n the as
sembly are named the Archbishop of
Paris and the Bishops of Marseilles an .
A Good Idea for Showmen.?Albert
Smith, the director of one of the most
amusing and successful entertainments in
London, 44 The Ascent of Mont Blanc,"
in a recent address to his audience, as
cribed a part of his success to a change
he-had made in the conditions of admis
sion. Instead of charging more thai the
usual price for reserved seats, taken be
forehand, he charged less, because, as he
said, 44 if any one takes the trouble to
come beforehand for his place, he ou^ht
to be compensated for that trouble. lie
enjoys some advantage over those who
come late, and the beet form in which to
put that advantage is to let him have his
place *t a lower rate."
The consequence of this arrangement
was that all his reserved seats, and a
?reat many more, were always promptly
taken, people being eager to avail them
selves not only of the security of a seat,
but of the slight reduction in price.
Marshal St. Arnaud.?His <*;9easo?
>f the heart?increased in vehemence.
Sis physicians promised him twenty
rears of life if he would retire into pri
rate life, but he spurned their < ffers.
during the battle of the Alma, he re
named in the saddle, galloping uj and
lown the lines, though at times his at
endants found it necessaiy to support
lim. "A marshal of France," he said,
'must know how to die on horseback.'*
jx the memorable night of the 1st of De
:ember, he was one of the very few who
ihared the confidence of Bonaparte. The
ask was assigned to him of arranging
he capture of the republican generals.
Vmong these was Lamoriciere, who, in
he Algerine war, had once saved St.
Irnaud from being cashiered for some ir
egularities in the management of the
xmy chest, which Lamoriciere discover
d, and consented not to make public.
)n his arrest, he wrote to St. Arnaud the
austic sentence : "In 1850, Lamoriciere
aved General St. Arnaud from having
lis sword broken; in 1851, General St.
Lrnaud broke the sword of Lamoriciere."
Gen. Putnam's Wolf Den.?A gen
leman who recently visited the den in
^mfret, down which Old Put descended
rith a rope round his leg and a musket
q his hand, describes it as being at least
wenty-six feet long, and on an average
wo feet square, though in some parts
auch wider. It extends directly into the
aountain, and is slightly descending.
?he wall above and on either side is of
ock. It is so formea that a furious she
rolf could keep at bay as many dogs as
ould be sent agafnst her. She was
rouched in the farthest end upon a
helving rock, and the passage * being
ather crooked, the General must have
enetrated at least ten feet, and probably
lore, unless he had a gun so favorably
ontrived that he could shoot round a
ay stack. The visitor crept in a dis
snce of twenty feet, and since there was
o wolf there, he regretted that he did not
leet with a few rattle-snakes, to make
be descent a little perilous.?Bostun
Emigrants from thb United States
o Australia.?The New York Evening
*ost publishes the project of an import
ut scheme for the promotion of emigra
ion from the United States to Australia,
t is designed especially to attract the
ree negroes of the United States. The
erms, which are fully stated in the letter
rom the ^Sydney house of Bier & Lowe,
ontemplates the accommodation of poor
?ersons who are healthy, but have not
aoney to pay their passage. They are
o enter into an agreement to work out
heir passage money, when they reach
iydney, the Council of the Colony having
tassed a law designed to enforce such
ontracts strictly. Perhaps it may be
useful to know that the people of Sydney
ecently in public meeting denounced the
ilan of introducing Coolies into the
ountry, as one tending to degrade white
abor by bringing black labor in coinpc
ition with it.
Popularity of Omar Pasha.?The
rhole of the Turkish troops are entirely
levoted to their gallant commander-in
:hief; he has won their esteem and re
ipect by his courage, firmness and supe
ior acquirements, and their aftection uy
lis kind and cordial manner to them.
short time since Omar Pasha was
naking preparations to go up to Ruts
