VARIETIES. The Departure of Francis and His Queen
from Gaeta—Incidents of the Voyage.
A letter from Naples gives some particu
lars of the departure of the ex-King and
suite fratn Gaeta. The French dispatch
steamer La Mouettt having been sent for by
telegraph to Naples, arrived at GaeU in the
morning, at balf-nast seven o'clock, and
found Francis awaiting ber in a small boat,
wilh a small circle of friends and servants, i
The officers and soldiersof his army watched
the thiharkation from the walls. The cap-J
tain having announced his readiness to re- '
ceive the King, the latter at once ascended
the deck, lie was smoking, and from lime J
to time a bitter smile passed over his face,
He spoke a few words with the captain and
offirets, then threw himself Into a chair, and
gnzed abstractedly about.
The Queen, Maria Sophia, bad disdain and
anger depicted in her tore. Richly butneg-
liiiently dresed, she sat In company with
two faithful ladies of her court, and, with !
her face supported on ber right hand, fixed
her eyes on Gaeta. Of a sudden was heard
the sound of drums and trumpets. It was
from the Italian regiments marching to the
town. Francis smiled, raised and waved his
laced cap. His suit cried "Vive il Ret'
"Long live the King!" was shouted back
by bis soldiers on the walls, and the ilouette
left ber moorings. ....
During the voyage, Francis conversed on
trivial subjects, and seemed much amused
at seeing bis Generals and Counselors in the
gaib of lootmen ; a dress assumed in order
to be able to follow their royal master,
Among these vsas most conspicuous General
Bosoo, with biB twisted monstaches. The
King appeared more like a hoy than a de-
throiied monarch. But the Queen, though
siientand calm, yet showed clearly the grief
that oppressed her. She spoke little, but
with dignity. On the way another French
steamer was spoken, wilh dispatches for.!

Thb Charleston Press on the Blowino
Up op FonT Sdmtib. The Charleston papers
are quite disgusted at the proposition to
blow up Fort Sumter when Anderson de
camps. The ilereury is highly indignant,
and says:
We see it suggested in Northern papers
that, if compelled to evacuate, the military
authorities of the Black-Republican Govern
ment should at least make a ruin of Fort
Sumter. We respectfully suggest that, sit
uated as Major Anderson is, it would be both
difficult and dangerous in him to execute
such a maneuver. How he could arrange to
effect such a hostile purpose and escape with
his command, is easier to speak of than to
plan and perform. Our Northern friends
may be very sure that before he is provided
with the means of transportation from the
post with bis command, the condition of the
fort will be properly looked after. We
would not suspect a brave officer of foul
play ; but if his Northern advisers were in
his place to practice the treachery they sug
gest acd advocate, they would bitterly rue
tbe deed.
Death or a Distinguished Musician.
Pastor Ortheib, who met with a melancholy
death at Stuttgart, deserves to be mentioned
esoceof the first theoretical musicians and
best composers of sacred music of the present
time in Germany. He lived on the " High
Alp" in Bnabia, on the Tomantic rock. of
Drachcnstein, with Divina ilutiea as sole
companion. He had been mis3ed for several
weeks, to the dismay of his friends, and now
his body has been found in tbe so-called
upper lake of the royal pleasure-grounds,
behind the castle. Not well acquainted with
tbe locality, he was walking there on a foggy
evening, and probably tried to croas a
wooden bridge, which, however, leads only
to the middle of tbe lake, and ends in some
steps, which at the time were covered with
ice. This accounts easily for the accidcDt,
which created sad consternation among bis
friends and the public in general. He
was the founder of the musical printing
office, "Zum Haydn," and of the journal for
sncted music at Stuttgart. A requiem bos
there been given for him,of his own compo
sition, executed by the Cecilienverein, under
the direction of iierr Schutky.
A Bov ov Ksvbn Years with a Hakbm.
The son of the Viceroy .of Egypt having at
tained tbe mature age of seven years, a sep
arate establishment has been provided for
him. As an indispensable department of
said establishment, the harem is properly
looked after; and Tonsoun Pacha, the young
gentleman in question, has been presented
with a couple of beautiful Circassian female
slaves. His nurse .has, of course, been dis
missed. " The young master, doubtless, feels all his
consequence; stalks around his lordly halls,
looks proudly upon his possessions, human
and otherwise, and, like Selkirk, exclaims:
"I am monarch of all I survey;'' while tbe
unfortunate women who belong to him are
worse used than if be were grown ; your
puny potentates are always the greatest
'Tie when dressed in a little brief author
ity that man plays such tricks as makes the
angels weep ; and, if a man does, a boy is
infinitely more aggravating: one can fancy
his litile si gniorship, in bis little turban
snd trowsers, throwing bis little handker
chief, and bidding his eunuchs take good
care tbat no man but himself is allowed to
enter tbe sacred precincts of the seraglio.!
. Singular Drawing ros a Mabriaob Por
tion. In the Parish of St. George-in-the-East,
which has become of bate years so fa
miliar to the public, there are other curious
customs than those formerly observed in the
parish church. Onathe 1st of May next, cer
tain young women, previously approved of,
will Lave an opportunity of drawing lots for
a marriage portion of 100, and the lucky
drawer will be entitled to receive that
amount as soon as she can obtain a husband
to share it with ber.
Tbe dispensers of the bounty are Ralne's
Charity Trustees, and the young women
who offer themselves as candidates must
have been educated in Mr. Raine's school,
and have attained tbe age of twenty-two
years. They must also have continued mem
bers of the Church of Ed gland since they
left tbe school. They are admitted as can
didates on the 5th of March.
A Southern Soldier Disopbtsd. The
Baltimore papers publish a letter from a
young Baltimorean now at Castle Pinckney,
Charleston, who has become disgusted with
soldiering. He says:
We are treated worse than negroes here.
We don't get enough to eat, and what we do
get is of the coarsest auij most common de
scription. -A good many young gentlemen who now
talk glibly of fighting, will become equally
disgusted when they are brought down to a
warfare. Second joints and tenderloins are
scarce in camp, ana not over soft is the bed
the soldier has to stretch his legs upon ; that
is, if be can find them after battle. .
An Old Feminine Offender. At the
Dundee Police Court, lately, Helen Rtmsay
or Hill, a woman veigint; on "three-score
and ten," was charged with having been
drunk and wilh disorderly conduct, being
ber one bundled and fourteenth appearance
there for that offense. She pleaded' gudiy.
The Bailie adopted the alioriiauva of Land
ing ber over to tbe care of a Temperance
missionary. In bis hands Hill promised
amendment. From 1S4J, to this time she
has spent l,8o7 days, or more than five years,
in prison.
A FoaTacoMiNO Great Picture. David
Roberts is actively engaged upon bis large
picture of the interior of St. Peter's at
Rome. Tbe difficulties of getting permis
sion to make any sketch of this portion of
the edifice bave prevented any satisfactory
representation being made. Mr. Roberts,
nevertheless, has obtained, through tbe ex
ertion of powerful inflaenoey some excep
tionable and limited facilities of making
drawings on the- spot, whieb, however uuj
saut factory, are, we believe, anprecedented.
The Great Financial Sensation in Paris—
Remarkable Effect the Arrest of Mires
the Banker—Particulars of the Event.
The Paris correspondent of the New York
Timet writes, on the 22d inat.
The sensation produced in Paris by the
arrest of Mires defies the power of exagger
ation. The fall of Gaeta, the siege of Mes
sina, the Guerrouniere pamphlet, tbe Patter-ton-Bonaparle
case, are all fosgotten, and
every body is eagerly asking who is ar
rested T who has committed suicide? who is,
declatsd baukrupt 'i and who has run away 7
Although public rnmor may, in some in
stances, put tbe saddle upon the wrong
horse, ibis much is certain, that many
courtiers of the highest rank and influence
are gravely compromised. If the whole
truth comes out, a state of corruption will
be disclosed for which no parallel can be
found in the worst periods of French his
tory. It appears that Mires, foreseeing that a
time might come when all would not run
smooth-with him, resolved that, in case of a
smash, oilier parties who had profited by bis
operations should come in for their share of
obloquy. Accordingly be opened an ac
count in his books entitled "Influence Ac
count," and under this heading be chroni
cled every fot de vin (ihe French word for
bribe) which he paid to illustrious Indi
viduals. His books were seized so long ago
as the middle of last December, and it wits
pcifectly notorious at that time that a crim
inal prosecution against him was contem

up, and it is understood that the Emperor
advanced as much as a million and a ba f of
francs, in the hope of " making things pleas
ant." ' j , '
Lately, however, fresh discoveries were
made ; certain irjjured parties became very
clamorous, and it became necessary once
more to call tbe Emperor's attention to the
subject. Mires felt so confident in the
strength of his position that he wrote a letter
to the Emperor last week, of a very threat
ening character, mentioning the names of a
variety of people whom he wonld denounce
if he should be molested. The Emperor held
a council, in which opinions were much di
vider). Count de Petsigny and M. Delangle
recommended His Majesty to have Mires at
once arrested, but Count de Morny and M.
, Baroche warmly opposed such a course.
The Emperor ultimately followed the coun
sels of his now favorite, and probably most
judicious adviser, De Persigny. and gave the
word that the law should take its course,
come what might. He is reported to have

their privacy was broken in npon by the
ruthless minions of the law. '

Napoleon Bonaparte in 1812—His Manner
and Appearance.
Henry firevoort, -the friend of Washing
ton Irving, some years ago wrote this Sketch
of Napoleon Bonaparte: - ' r
' Tbe minutest Circumstance connected wl'b.
the man "whose deeds have eclipsed all past
fame, and rendered all future doubtful," is
now become historical. The writer or this
sketch happened to be in Paris during the
Bpring of 1812, When, although negotiations
were going on between Prince Kourakta
and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, every
one knew tbat war with Russia had been
decretd in the mind of Napoleon. Dty
after day large bodies of troops, of every
arm, arrived and departed toward the North,
alter having been reviewed by the Emperor.
Nothing could exceed the splendid equip
ment, martial bearing and enthu-s-ism of the
Imperial Guard, waving their glittering
engits as they defiled by thousands before
tl eir invincible leader In the Champ de Mars.
Officers, who had just returned from the de
tected warfare in Spain, spoke of the con
quest of Russia as a frolic of a few mouths
fiom which they were sure to return
crowned with fresh laurels of victory.
They indulged in the most absurd specu
lations concerning the incidents and perils
of the approaching campaign, and seemed
as ignorant, as they were regardless, of all
the horrors which awaited them in their
fatal retreat through the frozen plains of
Kutsia. On tbe morning of the 9th of May
the tri-colored banner of France no longer
floated above the palace of the Tuileiies.
Napoleon bad departed wilh the Empress
tor Dresden, to play the pirt of the "King
of Kings."
The evening preceding I saw him at Che
Grand Opera, which was then in tbe Rue
Richelieu. The Emperor and Empress oo
cupied tbe front ot the box; behind them
stood rows of officers of the Imperial house
hold, in brilliant costumes, and the two ad
joining boxes were filled with damei d hon-ru-vr
and extinguished courtiers. .
The Emperor entered tbe theater in tbe
midst of tbe performance. The whole audi
ence arose to salute him, which he acknowl
edged by a slight inclination of his head be
foie he look bis seat. He remained until
the ballet was nearly ended, and then took
leave with the same careless ceremony with
which be entered. He appeared to take no
interest in what was passing upon the stage,
except for a few moments, when Gardelle
and liigottinis danced a pa de deux. His
glass was constantly in use, directed to all
parts of the theater, as if be were intent
upon examinLug tie face of every individual
. Occasionally he raised his hand, without
turning bis head, to receive bis snuff box
from tbe chamberlain, who stood up behind
bim in watchful attendance. Not a word
was uttered by bim to tbe Empress, nor to
any other person in the box. It was evident
from tbe restlessness of his manner, that his
mind was preoccupied with faraway scenes;
and if the dark curtain of futurity could
hate been lifted for a moment, what scenes
and events would he not have beheld I
Being very near, I kept my . eyes riveted
upon him. He was in a plain uniform of
hliie, wilh red cuffs and white facings, and
wore tbe grand cross aud ribbon of the Legion
of Honor. His person was rather corpulent,
but seemed muscular and active. His blue
gray eye was deep set in bis head, and occa
tioLolly threw out vivid flashes of expres
sion. His forehead was broad and smooth,
and his temples thinly covered with dark
brown hair.
. His nose was firmly set and finely formed,
and biB mouth and chin were the model of
classical beauty. His visage was Bquare,
and bis neck very short. His complexion
was healthy, but colorless; his beard of a

A Peep at the Palmettoists—Appearance of
Charleston in Martial Mood to a New
The Atlanta Monthly for April has an
article from the pen of J. W. De Forest, of
New Haven, Conn., who visiter! Charleston
in January, and describes that city under
arms jn aa amusing way. We extract from
bis article 'as follows:
Charleiton Marktmen.At two o'clock
we were steaming over the yellow waters of
the harbor. The voluuteers, like every-body
e'se in Charleston, discussed Secession and
Fort Sumter, considering the former ai an
accomplished fact, and the latter as a fact of
tbe kind called stubborn. They talked uni
form, too, and equipments, and marksman
ship, and drinks, and cigars, and other
militnry matters. Now and then an awk
wardiy.rolJel blanket was taken from the
shoulders which it disgraced, rcfiHed,
packed carefully in its corerjng of India-,
rubber, and strapped once more in its place,
two or three generally assisting in the ope
ration. Presently a firing at marks from
the upper deck commenced. The favorite
target was a conical floating buoy, showing
red on the sunlit surface of tbe harbor, some
4no yards away. With a crack and a hoarse
whiz the Minie balls flew toward it, splashing
up the water where they first struck and
then taking two or three tremendous skips
before they sunk. A militiaman from New
York City, who was one of my fellow
passengers, told me that he "never saw such
good shooting." It seemed to me tbat every
sixth ball either hit tbe buoy full, or touched
water but a few yards this Bide of it, while
not more than one in a dozen went wild.
"It is good for a thousand yards," said
Volunteer, slapping bis bright new piece
The Quttlion ofZFort Sumter. A. favorite
subject of argument appeared to be whether
Fort Sumter ought to be attacked immediately
or not, A lieutenant standing near me
talked long and earnestly regardiog this
matter with a civilian friend, breaking out
at last in a loud tone : .
"Why, good Heaven, Jim I do you want
that place to go peaceably into the hands of
Lincoln ?"
"No, Fred, I do not. But I tell vou, Fred,
when that fort ia attacked, it w'ill be tbe
bloodiest day the bloodiest day 1 tbe
bloodiest 1!"
And here, unable to express himself in
words, -Jim flung bis arms wildly about,
ground bis tobacco with excitement, spat on
ell sides.and walked away, shaking his head,
I theufht, in real grief of spirit. .
Hatching Second clatr Plant. -In a coun
try which for eighty years has not seen a
shot fired in earnest, it is not wonderful that
a good deal of ignorance should exist con
cerning military matters, and that second
class plans should be hatched for taking a
first-class fortification. While I was in
Charleston, the most popular proposition
was to bombard continuously for two whole
days and nights, thereby demoralizing the
garrison by depriving it of sleep, and causing
it to surrender at the first atte inpt to escalade.
Another plan, not in general favor, was to
smoke Anderson out by means of a raft cov
ered with burning mixtures of a chemical
end bad smelling nature. I
Still another, with, perhaps, yet fewer ad
herents, was to advance on all sides in such
a vast number of row-boats that tbe fort
couid not sink them all, whereupon the
survivors should land on tbe wharf and pro
ceed to take such further measures as might
be deemed expedient. Tbe volunteers from
tbe country always arrived full of faith and
defiance. "We want to gst a squint at that
Fort Sumter," they would say to their city
friends. "We - are going to take it. If we
don't plant tbe palmetto on it, it's because
there's no such tree as the palmetto." -
Celumbiadt Regarded with Ditfavor.
Down the harbor they would go ia Uie ferry
boats to Morris or Sullivan's Island. The
spy-glass would be brought out and one
after another would peer through it at the
object of their oamity. Some could aot
sight it stall, confounded tbe instrument,
and fell back on tbeir natural vision. . Oth
ers, more lucky or better versed iu telescopic
observations, got a view of the fortress and
perhaps burst out swearing at the erideat
massiveness of the walls aud the size of the
