Christina, dowager Queen (f Spain,
is one of the richest individuals in
Europe, and probably the greatest
business woman ia tho world. Her
operations are not confined to any
one country or any one single class
of securities. She dabbles in every
thing. Driven from Spain, she has
her list in every speculative project
iu tho Peninsula. She has contract-
ed with the Pope to build tho railways
of the Papal States. Her invest
ments in the French railways have
been large; she has bought M:dmis.on,
the lorni.T residence of Josephene,
nd now owns the Courier de Paris
newspaper. She h:is beer, one of the
most successful operators in tho Cu-
..ban slave trade, and has innumerable
' projneta in Cuba among which are
the Havana gas works, several fine
suwar estates, and many tracts of fine
hind. 'At onetime, when she was
paramount in Spain, it is said sho of
fered to lend her influence to tho sale
of Cuba to us, provided we would
give her the land the walls of Havana
stand on. She has two or three a
gents in this country one being in
Vhilftdc-hiliia. ono ia New . Orleans,
nd another without a fixtd location.
Eich of these is supposed to control
investments to the amount of one or
two millions of dollars, scattered in
real estate, railway securities and
State Stocks. .

. The Timely Witness..",';
At the close of a cold
day in the year 1S14, during the
court term at Clerkenwell Assizes,
I f-i i .
there came, up : by the
evemng msil stage an ordinary look
ing person, who halted, at a small
tavern in the town of. C ,
where the trials .were being heard,
and who informed the landlord that
he should proceed on the following
day, if the weather was not bad.
IIg booked himself as Henry j
.CiUgeiord, oi jueeas, ms oaggage
was duly stowed, and nothing out
of the common appearance indicated
itself in his manner .or habits. He
spoke pleasantly, mixed with tbft
coininff and established guests of
the house, and as the weather seem
e' gloomy and forbidding in the
morning, (a circumstance that might
be easily foretold on the evening he
arrived, by the' way,) he decided
to remain over another day.
Among the cases which had been
presented by the grand jury of the
borough, at the present-' sitting of
of the court, was one for highway
robbery, charged upon a man who
nswered to the name Burrows, and
ua ' ibQ
whose trial had commenced on the
day of Edgeford's -arrival.'-
UgeiOrQ S nriivai. ' ' x
Time appeared to hang heavily
upon thenew comer's hands, d
he seemed to be anxious to proceed
on his journ2y; but the weather
would not permit, and be found himsell
"reluctantly compelled" to tarry; at
B nis landlord desirous to
amuse ' him, and retain his visitor as
long as possible, informed him that

the entertainment of strangers, and
especially to those were bred io, and
accustomed to city life; but just at
that time court was in , session,
and among the presentations was
the case of one John ' Burrows,
who was bring tried for an alleged
robbery on the highway, the ; details
of which would no doubt interest
him for the moment. But the stran
ger had no taste for tho marVellous,
and d.idn't care to attend court: -v
The sulject was freely ; discus
sed at the table, however, both at
breakfast - and lunch houis, and Mr.
Edgefo:d was induced at last to go
to the court-house to1-listen to tho
closing evidence upon the capital
trial which had deeply interested
every one else in the neighborhood,
and which was really a cause ol im
portance and-note.
In. the meantime letters reached
the, hotel for "Henry Edgeford, Esq ,
of Leeds," forwarded : duly by " the.
post from London; and VIr, E- had
spoken of one or two of bis' corres
pondents, casually, who' hud been
recognized by. other gentlemen, also
tarrying at the public house where
he was temporarily sojourning. . ; He
had a heavy letter of credit,'' from
his "friend, (as he called him,) lion.
inomas Daring, ana everyunug uuout
the department and carriage . of Mr.
Henry Edgeford denoted him the
accomplished gentleman. " ' '
Tho. case of Burrows, who was,
charged with the high crime men
tioned, was In . this as set forth in
the allegation: . , ; -. -
. On the night of June IGth, 1814,
the Hon. Jonas Petit, M. P., was on
his way home in his pond chaise,
when his animal was suddenly seiz
ed by a man who sprang from
a hedgerow near the crossing of the
Charing and Barringtdn roads, who
presented a pistol against the per
son of the honorable M. Pi and de
manded "his money or his life."
It was near the setting of ? the
moon and the only clue . to the
indentity ; of the supposed . robber
was a small gash upon $6 back of bis
hand, which the honorable gentleman
observed at the time the pistol was
drawn upon him. .
He had only four guineas about
him at that moment and a single
ten pound note upon the Bank of
England. -The latter was not discov
ered by the robber but the four gold
roina civern up. - Immediately .an
larra ..was given by the: honorable
centleman. Scouts.-, and policemen
were sent out; and three days after
