Fragment of other years,
Kellc of days of old!
All round the waste appears.
Alone thou standest bold! .
Who builf thee, aged pile? -
Who hugged thy jambs of stone T
Where are they now, the while
Thou standerit here alone?
Dim twilight robed the circling, vale.
And lit the dark decay lme pile.
About thee, years agone,
A stately mansion rope: o
Here was a flowery lawn
_ Where now the nightshade blows.
Perchance besldethy hearch -
Youth dreamed or deathless names.
And golden hopes had birth
That xoared up with thy
Her rosy childhood happy roved;
Here chivalry hath knelt and loved:
Pale sorrow, too, hath tarried here, -
And teara bedewed the hardened bier;
uao wv All IUUUUUI uonuem
: Love whispered wonliess tenderness.
ra
Why standest thou, lone mark ?
Gray ruins, mist and mould
Are dilpplng where they spark
Glimmered in time*of old,
Within thy bosom now
The snake hath made his home
Th* owl from 'neath thy brow , .
? Hooti in his nightly gloom.
Tho chirpiug cricket's song has ceased.
The silent spider spreads his feast;
Here did thy winter welcome shine,
Where darkly creeps the poison vine. ,
So hopes too bright forsake the breast,
And cankerooraes a constant guest.
Old fragment! perivh with thy lore.
Nor longer memory implore.
IV
Yetstand. lone, ancient column!
Thy witness stands as lone!
Like thee, a sealed volume.
With story all unknown,
As on thy brow the light,
So gaily hopes on mine;.
But soon 'twill sink in night?
Here's ruin such as thine, e
Yes, stand thou still. I love to see.
The budding ivy broider thee:
As if, like infancy, to try
To smile off age's memory.
And thou,grim spoiler, spare a time
This ruin, holier tar than prime.
To stand, *mld perished bloom; ?tr?? truth
Surviving life's dream, woke ln yputh.
WIlE AXO PRETTY WOMO OF |
WALPOI.ETft. TIME.
Queen Caroline, the Ducbessc* of j
9farlboroagti and <taeeiubnry,' and 1
Lsdy Mary Wortley Montagne.
We take from an English magazine
the 'following account, from Horace
Wal pole's letters, of some of the .court
beauties and celebrities about whom be
gossips. -i
QUEEN CAROLINE.
Her beauty, which had been great at
the time of her marriage, l*ad fallen a
victim to the fatal ravages of the terri
ble distemper,-which' 'wail then so little
understood and so unscientifically
treated, that it is a matter for wonder
that any survived t6 bear upon their
countenances for life the distinguish
ing sign and seal with which "small
pbx" marked the victims, who had
escaped its elUtcties -alive. ?
Tho beaming eyes of the queen, in-.
deed, were as expressive as ever, and j
could kindle with interest, melt in)
sympathy, or burn with indignation
and affronted majesty from"s under' the
royal brow. Another -great beauty
which the queen could boast was the
marvelous symmetry of Jier. "small,
plump and'graCefhl hands," a chiirifa
by no means to be despised, and ono
far lees common than that of a pretty
face or a bright, rosy complexion. Her
personal attributes, indero, were so far
from contemptible that the king - him
self, though a*tyrahrifcal and unfaith
ful husband, 'frequently declared in
public that no had never yet. seen a,
woman whose charms equalled those of
the queen j and when he described his
own idea of beauty; he al waysUitefally
described tbat-'of-fire own* wifer" Often
more than one occasioiuipdeed, he sub
jected the "good Howard" herself to
account? for- coming ij^tho robnt-ae :
that lady was .manipulating, the royal
head (a menialtacnpatiolrto wlflcb the
wife had the power of submitting/the
mistress),.he snatched off the handker
chief which concealed the > fair -and
beautifully modelled throat of the for
mer, sayingangrlly to Mrs. Howard as
he did so, "Because you have an ugly
neck yourself, you hide the ?queen's." e,
But majesty also has its moments of
self-imposed humiliation; and at such
times we hear of thequeen herselfrisr
ing meekly and offering to. retire, when
the king and his prime minister, Sir
Robert Walpole, for \vh9m she had a
great personal regard, consulted npon
business of the st&ter-^matteta which,?
Says Horace Walpole, "she and my
father had previously settled between
them."- She was fond .of laying, out
?*????????* ^-imond; |
and Bhe managed (ueiug a; clever. wo
man), to hoodwink the lring inta^be
lieving that the expenses of these Im
provements-were defrayed out of her
privy purse;, while; she was, in fact,.
supplied with the necessary funds by
the aid and connivance of the first
minister of state.
She dlSjAndeedfa'j
l'jtn'd jiespeeU
_.w r _i'martyr to this* prin
clple of' implicit and unquestioning
obedience to the arbitrary ruin ofher
exacting spouse; Toe ratter than op
pose any wish fir command of hifi, she
underwent hours of florae torture, and
keptaecret within her own breast the
progress of tho maladywhich was soon
to terminate in death.. .
When. Buffering from the gont in her
leg, she did not hesitate to plflOgetHe
limb so affected into cold water, that
she might be'enabled to attend the king
in his morning walk.
A IHOH-TKMPERKD DCCHISS.
"Old Marlborough," she was ln
.Horace Wal poll?'a time. "One of her
principal charms," he tells us, "washer
fine, fklt Tialr."
These fair, 'showering, - golden locks
were themselves doomed to be sacrl
foad to the passionate 'temper ~Qf their
mistress; for "one day'at her toilette,
in anger to her hnsband.; she cut off all
these commanding itMasee. and flung
them at hia -Usee."'' TWb curious out
burst of eoqjugal malice waa practised
in later years by a celebrated beauty,
whose-bnabanpjf, .like the gnat duke,
took a pride in Usuriftfa inagnlfloent

inferiors anld: her- children under her
feet. With her eldest daughter (who
succeeded ber, by Actor Parliament,!
as Duchess of Marlborough), she was |
at open war. With her youngest, the j
Duchess of Montague,-she agreed no
better.
"I wonder,** said, the duke her hus-'j
band,-with less knowledge of human j
nature than of the art of war, "that!
you two cannot agree, you are so much 1
Lady Batenian, daughter of the!
Duchess, persuaded her brother to mar- I
ty a handsome young lady, who un
luckily was the daughter of Lord Tre
vor, who had been a bitter enemy of his
grandfather, the victorious duke. The )
Sanddam's rage exceeded all bounds,
aving.a portrait of Lady Batenian,.;
she blackened her face, and wrote on it, {
"Now her outside is as black as herin-i
side."
This. Is the last we hear of her from
Ws graphic pen, excepting. a few lines i
'announcing her-death, which, took
place soon after. "Old Marlborough i31
dying?but who can tell!" Last year j
she had lain ill for a great while with- j
out speaking; her physician said:
"She must beblistered or she will die."
She called out,'*I won't be blistered and
I won't die."
FEMALE VAKtTV.
Next in the ' succession of courtly |
celebrities coinea Catharine, Duchess!
Dowager of Buckingham, who was a
natural daughter of James XL She was
remarkable. principally for her over
weening pride and Sot her affectation I
of regal privileges and prestige. Of
her Horace Walpole relates: ." The I
Duchess of Bnckinghnin.^who is more I
mad with pride .than any mercer's wife I
In Bedlam, came last night to the opera,
en princesse literally in robes, red vel
vet and ermine." It was she who made
the famous reply to S?rah, Duchess of]
Marlborough, upon thelatter*s refusing!
to lend .the funeral car which had con- j
veyed the great duke to the grave.]
"Tell her," replied Catharine of Buck- t
ingham, transported with rage, "that j
my upholsterer tells me I jean have a
better one for twenty pounds." Of her
own deathbed, Mr. Walpole gives this
curious account:
"Princess Buckingham is dead or dy
ing: she has_sent for Mr. Anstis, and |
settled the . ceremonial of-her burial..!
On Satnrday ah6 was so .111 that she |
feared-dying;-before all the pomp:
said, 4 why won't they send the canopy
fbt me to see? let themsendit though.'
all the tassels are not? finished.' But
yesterday was the greatest stroke of all;
she made her ladies., vow .to her that if
she shoold lie senseless, they would'
not sit' down in the room beTore she wasjj
dead." .
A POOR FINE LADY.
From this proud woman we turn to I
one who occupied a position in the
court about the Queen's person, but
wh6 was also publicly recognized as
the favorite mistress of the King. Hen-1
rletta Hobart was the daughter of Sir
Henry and the sister of Sir John Ho-1
bart, Knight of the Bath, afterwards 1
by her interest made a Baron, and since |
created Karl of Buckinghamshire. She
married early, Mr. Howard, a brother
of the Earl of Snffolk, and prepared
with'hiui to' face the bitter brunt of
poverty in a position of life which was I
far superior to the circumstances which
must support itd* They sow before them
but one chance for promotion, and that
was in attaching themselves to the j
court of Hanover, where the futurfe
sovereign of England awaited the do-1
mise of the reigning. Queen (Anne.) As
a way of eking out the "ways and I
means" of their small 'menage,- as great1
a bugbear to fashionable young mar
ried couples then as now, we find an
amusing anecdote of her cutting off
her beautiful abundant tresses (com-!
manding a high price from the peruke
makers in those days of flowing flaxen I
wigs).to fU'rnish forth u banquet for her !
husband's guests. Wigs were sold in |
that time for twenty ana thirty guineas
apiece; and as each fair- tress fell into
the trembling balances,*' ire, might sup
pose it to have been in every sense of j
the words "worth its weight in gold."
On the accession of. his father to the |
throne Of England, the electoral prince 1
(afterwards. George II.) caused Mrs.
Howard to be appointed woman of the ;
bed-chamber to the young Princess of
Wales.
To these apartments came frequently
the electoral prince, not attracted at
that time by the mild beauties of their
fair mistress, but by the lovely, lively, j
laughing Mary Bellenden* described by
every one of h?r contemporaries as the 1
most perfect creature they ever knew. |
? The~fat, phlegmatic heart of her royal |
adorer beat-strange music- within Ihe f
princely breast.when the ;sound of her
footsteps fell upon his ear.... .
his amusements consisted in |
r 'Onfe of ??BH.
counting.and . recountinghis mon^y,~a
proceeding which greatly; irritated the
nervous system of .the saucy Bellenden:
"Sir 17. she cried out to him on* day, VI
cannot bear it: if/you count yourinoney |
any more I will go out. of the room."
The chink of his gold was as disagreed !
able to her as his unwelcome presence,
and the heart of the giddy Bellenden J
was safe from thespells of either. That I
was already in the proud possession of 1
Colonel Cambell, one Of the grooms of
the bed chamber,-who afterwards sue-1
ceeded to the title of Argyll at the death I
of Duke Archibald. j
Mrs. Howard succeeded to her friend
in the post of favorite; and she had nei
ther the wish nor the spirit to repel the 1
attentions of her royal adffilrer, as Miss
Bellenden had done before her. Horace!
Walpole tells us that she. preferred the {
"solid advantages" to the ostentatious
eclat of her position:
TUB WILD1 DUCHESS OP QUREWSBERHT. ' j
Catharine Hyde was the daughter of
the Earl of? Clarendon, and afterwards 1
became the wife of Charles Douglas, I
Duke .of. Queensberry. She was. cele-1
brated for her beauty* and for the dar
ing with which-she* defied the conrtl
party, by promoting subscriptions to
thesecond part of the?*Beggars?,<Opera,*'
when it had been prohibited from being
.acted. For thls'onence she was forbid-1

have immortalised; her itf letters And in
versej^th^ latter in the poem entitled
"The FemalePhre ton,"which, as a de?-i
cription of a fast young lady of those J
days, is worthy of insertion here:

TbeyTPgrlerel was not loosed before;

f Walpole describes it quarrel between
ber, and the Dnchesa of Richmond,
whose daughter, I^dy Caroline,. bad |
?recently eloped. "Here la a very good I
X oil foot; between two dacheaaea. t
She of QueensberTy Kent to'invite Lady (
Emily Lennox to a ball; ber Grace-of
Richmond, who is wonderfully cantloos i
since Lady Caroline's elopement: sent I
word, 'the cokM mot determine/ The}
other sent again the same night; the j
aame answer. The Qneenberry then |
tent vor^ that she had mad. r " ?
company, and desired to be nvimi
pbm having Lady Emily's, but at the [
bottom of the card wrote, 'too great a
trust,7 You know how mad she is and
how capable of such a stroke."
The-next we hear of her is regaining
a footing at court, a point for which she
had intrigued two years unsuccessful y,
and which she achieved on the occasion
of her son's being obliged to the king or
a regiment in the Dutch service. She
would not let him go to kiss hand?
until they sent for her too. Then,
again, we find her at Richmond, at a
firework fete amongst the 44 whole court
of St. Germain's and all the Fitzes upon
earth," in "a forlorn trim, in wnite
apron and hood," which it was her
whim to assume on that occasion, mak
ing "the duke swallow all her un
dress."
. "T'other day," Mr. Walpole goes on
to inform his correspondent, "she drove
post to Lady Sophia Thomas, of Par
son's Green, and told her that she was
come to tell her something of impor
tance. 'What is it?" 'Why, take a
couple of heefisteaks, clap them together
as if they were for a dumpling, and eat
them with pepper and salt; it's the best
thing you ever tasted; I could not help
coming to tell you this;' and away she
drove back to town. 'Don't a course of
folly for forty years,' he adds, with some
justice, 'make one very sick ?'"
LADY MARY WORTLKY MONTAODK.
"DidI tell you/1 he says, "that Lady
Marv Wortley is here ? She laughs at
fret, and is laughed at by the whole
town. Her drees,: her avarice and. her
impudence must amaze any one that
never heard her qame, She wears a
foul mob, that does, not cover her greasy
black locks,'that hang loose, never
combed or curled; an old mazarine blue
wrapper,'that gapes open and discovers
a canvass petticoat. Her face swelled
violently on one side, and partly cover
ed with white paint which, for cheap
ness. she has bought so coarse, that you
would not use it to wash a chimney."
Not a tempting picture of the bos bleu
of the period.
XADA1I DU DBFFAXD'S DOG. -
Walpole amusingly relates, on the
oocasion of this visit, the demetes he had
to raecomodi?, and the memoires to pre
sent against Touton, Madame du Def
fund's favorite dog; "As I am the only
person," he says, "who dare correct
him, I have already insisted on his be
ing confined in the Bastille every day
after five o'clock. T'other night he flew
at Lady Barrymore's face, ana I thought
would have torn her eye out; but it
ended in biting her finger. She was
terrified; she fell into tears. Madame
du Deffand, who has too much parts
not'to see everything In its troo light,
perceiving that she bad not beaten
Touton half enough, immediately told
us a story.ol ja.lady, whose dog having
bitten a piece oat or a gentleman's leg!
the tender dame, in a great fright, cried
out, "Won't it make my dog sick?"
"Touton," the spoilt little favorite,
was sent to Strawberry, a legacy to Mr.
Warpole, whose promise Madame du
Deffand1 had obtained to take care of
the dog should it survive Its doatlngly
attached mistress. In answer to a let
ter from the former to the Rev. Mr, Cole,
the worthy antiquary remarks: "I con
gratulate the little Parislon dog that he
has fallen into the hands of sohumane
a master. I have a little diminutive
dog, Busy, fall as great a favorite, and
never out of iny lap; I !mvt; already
Jn case of an accident, insured it a re
fuse from starvation and ill usage. It
is the least we can.do for poor, harmless,
shiftless, pampered animals that have
amused us, and we have spoilt." Tou
ton fully justified the character former
ly given of him by his behavior upon
his arrival at the Gothic villa of his
ne^.master. "Ho began by exiling my
beautiful little cat," he writes, "Spon
which, however, we shall not quite
ogree. He then flew at one of my
dogs, who returned it by biting his
foot till it bled, but was severely beaten
for It. I Immediately rang for Marga
ret to dress his foot; but in the midst of
my tribulation,. could not keep my
countenance, for she cried, "Poor little
thing, he does not understand my lan
guage!" I hope Bbe will not recollect'
too, that he is a Papist.'

haps, than any we have ever had, is re
ceiving praise on all sides, and from all
parties, for his wise and statesmanlike
measures, looking to the reorganization
of the late rebel States. In New York
and New Jersey, where party hate and
rancor art) having full sweep; judging
by the style of oratory adopted by the
Speakers, on both sides, all nnile in
commending the policy adopted by the
President, a* Wise and humane.'In
deed the leaders or both panics, claim
him oa one of themselves; the Demo
crats, because be was formerly a mem
ber oft hut party,- and the Republicans,
more hutly, because he accepted their
nomination, and was elected on their
platform, and by their party. Of one
thing all may rest assured, the affairs or
the country will be administered hon
estly and Jostly. regardless of party
cliques, and for the best interests ofaU
concerned; and that Andrew Johnson
will never Tylerize his party.
It is a very fortunate circumstance
for the President that he has among his .
Cabinet advisers, two or three gentle
men who are invaluable to him, from
the fact that they are comparatively
fresh from the people, and know their
desires and wishes; such are Governor
Dennison, of Ohio, Postmaster General,
and Hon. Hugh McCulloch. of Indiana,
Secretary of the Treasury. These een
tlemen are Original thinkers, and have
no old fogy or fossil ideas about them.
They are the working men of the Cabi
net, and could not easily be duplicated;
their success In their different depart
ments has been wonderful; the Treas
a _far better condition now
than it has been during the last four
years, and the Secretary boldly an
nounces his determination to make the
greenback worth its face in gold!
On the other hand Postmaster General
Dennison has succeeded in instilling
new life ifatp our postal arrangements;
he has made thei Department not only
Self-sustaining, but a source of revenue
to the Government; the excess of the
receipts oyer the expenditures duing
the fiscal year ending 30th June, 1865,
foot up over *850,000! TMs Department
never ws in mo good condition ; but in
^,,u, ttlway? been a heavy drag on
the finances of the Government. Fur
ther improvements are in contempla
tion, and so long as the present head
orders its affairs, it wUl continue to im
prove. At this time a large number of
valuable contracts, for mail service
in the South and Southwest,
are being let, and - here is brought
In play Governor Dennison'a thor
ough knowledge or the Southern
country, and the practical and reliable
men of thataection. It will enable him
to be of immense service to the Govern
ment inithe saving of large sums oi
money, by rejecting all bids emanating
iton the old cormorants who used to
prey so heavily on the Treasury. Stay
the country be long blessed with the
service of such men. j. (I. j.

VKUMaaEniUdiaua to Urn. Urant.
DK Vangn, editor of the British Be.
n'ev, who visited this country last sum
mer, gives an acconnt of a call he made
:upon Gen. Grant in Washington;
. eminent man was in his official
department, much the sort of room In
Which a London attorney might be im
igined giving audience to hb clients.
The General waa not in uniform, and
p'amly dressed. The portrait, of him
are faitnfol representations of his square
and spacious forehead, and of . the set
somewhat above, the ordinary hight,
whose complexion and features bespoke
his origin, but whose civilized experi
ences had given him a little more flesh
than would seem to havo been common
amone his ancestors. ?
4tThis stately- descendant from the
sons of the old wilderness gave me a
cordial grasp of the hand on our being
introduced. The manner of the Gen
eral was simple and quiet. 1 soon saw
he was a man of few words, and had
reason to think that his words were
usually well chosen. After a few com
monplaces had passed he began to speak
fireely on public affairs. The tone of
the Knglisn press concerning the mili
tary action of the North seemed to have
impressed him unfavorably. *If vour.
newspapers are to be believed/ said the
soldier, who is second to none of his
time, 'we never went into the field but
to bo beaten. I have been in more en
gagements than auy other man in the
service, and have not been beaten yet.
On tho continent of Europe, too, the
disposition, it appears, has been to harp
on tho same string. Friends who have
visited your country and France tell
me that, go into what circle they might,
the tulk about America all went one
way.
"In reply, I mentioned some facts
which seemed to warrant a somewhat
different conclusion. These facts were
frankly admitted as tending to show
that in England there must after all
have been a considerable breadth of
sympathy with tho North. 'Say what
Sou will/ said the General, tfiis war
as been tho biggest job of its sort that
has ever been done in this world; and
it will be a chapter to itself in tho his
tory of war?nothing like it has gone
before.'
"When about to take my leave I was
?leased to hear the General say, 'Weil,
think I shall come to Englnna some
day; but it must not be until-I can spare
something like a twelvemonth for that
part of the world.' I did not fail to ex
press my conviction that if he came
among us he would find not a few capa
ble of appreciating what he had done,
and of doing so generously. Of Lee
the General spoke honorably, descri
bing him as an able man who had made
a great mistake. This mistake, I pre
sume, was in committing himself
against the Northern cause?tho cause,
the final success of which the General
himself had never doubted."
