A Singular and Romantic Career or a
Covode. The grandfather of the Hon. John
Covode, of Pennsylvania, was picked up at
Amsterdam when a child of three or four
years, put on a vessel and brought to Phila
delphia, where he was sold by the Captain
a "rederoptioner" until he was twenty
eight yenre of age, the Captain giving him
the name of Covode. He was sold to a man
Chester County by the name of Miller.
He never learned to read or write. After he
had served out his time he mitrried the
widow of a British officer, the officer having
lieu at York, l enn. There was one son tne
issue of that marriage, and the Hon. John
Covode is the eldest son of that son, his
father having died about the time of his first
election to Congress. Some time since an
effort was made to trace the family in Am
sterdam, but no name of the kind could be
found there, leading to the supposition that
the Capiain gave the child a name of bis
own contriving. At another time the
American Consul at Amsterdam was asked
to inquire concerning a child of the age
lost at that time, but so many had been
stolen and carried off, that nothing could
be learned of that family, and the search is
The Character and Origin of the Druses.
The Druses are said to have derived thoir
name from Druzi, who lived in the eleventh
century, and preached the divinity of Hakim,
a Caliph, whose reign was long, and mon
strously iniquitous, but who is adored as a
god by the Druses, and looked to as their
future deliverer. Like the Jews, they are
expecting a Messiah, who is to be Hakim, the
eerono. i ney are said to worsnip a can,
hut they conreal the rites of their religion.
This tribe, which was powerful in the last
century, was decimated sixty years ago by
the celebrated bmir tlecnir, a great prince
among the Maronites. but an unchristian
man. The embers of that long-slumbering
feud have now, by some underhand means,
been fanned into a flame again.
Singular and Romantic Meeting in a
Convent. When Louis Phillippe and his
queen wore in exile, in Ularemont, they
visited the convent of the Sacre Coeur. The

was so amiable and agreeable that the queen,

tion. "Perhaps," added Her Majesty, "you
will be interested to know who your visitors
are. This gentleman is Louis Phillippe; I
am the Queen Amelie." The nun, bowing
profoundly, replied, witn a gentle smile
