AN USLICKY BATH.
How liOniMlnrjft Uratch was Broken
From the Baton Rouge Cemet.J ,
L In a certain neighborhood of our par
ish' there' resides an intelligent young
gentleman of prepossessing appearance
and agreeable manners, who not many
months ago became smitten by the
charms of a blooming daughter of a near
neighbor, a well-to-do .farmer, and after
several works cf unremitting attention,
succeeded Sn 'touching a responsive cord
in the susceptible heart of the fair dam
sel, and gained her blushing consent to
become his wife. So far, so good; and
had it'not&een for an unfortunate inci
t "Rudely snapped the eord In twain j
1(1 That bound their hearts together," ' !
that same mieht have bee said of them
that has been said of thousands of other I
foolish boys and girls, namely: tuey met,
oonrted, and were married. But an ad
verse fate had otherwise ordered, and our
hero' was destined only too soon to have
his cup of bliss changed into the bitter
ness of gall and wormwood.. As soon as
their engagement had received the sanc
tion of the old folks, preparations were
made on an extensive scale to have the
nuptial ceremonies and the festivities
attendant thereupon conducted in a style
in keeping with their elevated positions
iivf society. Time passed on apace With
the happy pair, aud the eventful , morn
that was to witneBS'the happy consum
mation of their fondest hopes drew nigh,
when, alas! the unfortunate incident oc
curred that put an end to their pleasant
dreams vand delightful anticipations.
One afternoon, Only a few days before
the auspicious hour, our young friend
concluded that he wonld enjoy a refresh
ing 'bath in a ereek that ran within a
short distance of his home. . Acting upon
the thought, he wended his way to where
alargn magnolia stood near the bank of
the pellucid stream, and divesting him
self of his clothing, was soon disporting
in the limpid waters. Suddenly a sound
broke upon his ear. Hark, 'twas the
ripple,' not of ,the water, but of a silvery
laugh, aud peering tnutiously above the
bank, what was his horror to seo his fair
inamorata, accompanied by a female
friend, not more than one hundred yards
distant, and slowly approaching the spot
where ha stood "in all his loveliness re
vealed." ' HeM was. predicament in
deed!" If he remained where he was the
ladies would be sure to see him, and if he
sought safety in flight it was Equally im
possible for him to escape detection.
What should he do? Ah! happy thought!
there was a tree,' and if he could only
manage to climb that , unobserved he
might seorete himself among the branches
and the thick moss and leaves- , , i
" With friendly guise
Would hide his form from prying eyei."
No sooner said than done, and being
careful to keep the body of the. tree be
tween himself and the girls, our young
friend, in less time than it takes to write
it, waa snugly stowed away in thw top of
the tree, and waiting very impatiently for
the young ladies to go by. Unfortunately,
however, in tho hurry and Mf'te611.1 of
the moment, he forgot his clotheg;'tohich,
lying on the bank, attracted tho atten
tion of the girls, and, with the proverbial
curiosity of their sex. they must 'come
nearer tg as if thej could not unravel tho
seeming mystery. Approaching the foot
of the tree they soon discovered whof the
mysterioHs bundle was, and became lost
in conjecture as to how a wail clothing
without the man should happen to be in
that sequestered spot. They gave free
play to their imaginations and their
tongues, and not a few were the jokes and
laugh to ffhieh they indulged while sub
mitting the giuwH ffl S critical ex
amination. UiWtth WW .H

FREXC1I SOCIETY, i '
Parlalao Wahiona and (he Derul-
u,. mI. . , f '
Correspondence of the Cincinnati GaMtte.l ,
It is a strange state of society which In
one country permits notoriously bad and,
impure women to set fashions iu dress,
which are imitated and followed by the
pure and virtuous women of the rest of
the world. ' Strange as it is, it is never
theless true, i The lead As of the demi
monde in PariB, as bold and shameless
a class as can anywhere be found, are
also 'the- leaders of fashion. These
women, who have, generally speaking,
gained the position they occupy by their
personal charms, are au fait iu every
art that will enhance the in, and reckless
and extravagant in the use of means to
supply these arts, conspicuous among
which are those of the toilet. . They are
the moBt costly and elegantly apparelled
females of the capital, delighting in op
portunities to flaunt their extravagances
of equipage and attire in the face of the
wives of their cher amis as they pass
them on the drives. . ' , . '
Several years since, when the ij
mvude first came into fashion, a courage
ous lady of high rank, whose husband,
report suys, hod been led away by a
siren of that class, determined that she
would see for herself in what the seduc
tive power of these women consisted,
which could allure men from pure homes
and lawful wives. Consequently she
made up n party, who disguised them
selves, and managed to gain entrance to
one of the select masquerades given by
a noted courtesan. When questioned
afterward as to tho discoveries she had
made, sho replied she had made but one
that they knew how tQ dress; as for
the rest, she believed it was only the
longing for forbidden fruit. ...
A later writer states uiat tne scanuai
ously low dress worn at the present day
at the French court, where three inches
of corsage and one thickness of illusion
is a woman's covering from the waist up,
can be traced entirely to the influenceof
the demi vwnde. Private letters say
that the failure of Madame Ullivier to
imnnu tha hiirh enrRAo'n uTion Parisian
society is due to the same cause. The
daughters ot pleasure latign at ana riu
icale it, and make themselves more at
tractive' than ever in their decollete
toilettes, having more iniluence in tne
Balons than even the Empress on her
throne, f It is represented that Eugenie's
adherence to bare shoulders is as mnch
a . matter of popularity as taste. ' The
canaille of Paris deeming thnt snch exhi
bitions are a part of royalty, expect it,
having no fancy for an Empress choked
to the throat like a great grandmother

ing time and talents on the invention of
a toilet, takes the steps most certain of
securing its success and making it the
rage. Selecting one of tho leaders of
the demi monde, whose points sne nns
had in her eye while engaged in the
work, and who is in tho pay of the artist,
she fits and adjusts the costume to her
style, studying its becomingness Bnd ele
gance in every little detail. When fin
ished it is perfect, and arrayed in it the
"daughter of pleasure' has no objec
tion to entering her carriage and moving

iy those who level their glasses to ex
amine her uress ana noie us eueuuve

and an advertisement for the mndiste.
The Empress Eugenie, the Princess
Metternicli, and other ladies of i rank
have had the credit of originating most
of the Paris toileU, when in fact they do
nothing of the kind. They choose from
the styles offered for their consideration,
adopting and thus sanctioning those
which please them most, or are most be
coming, the same styles having very fre
quently been first introduced by pie
From the SL Louis Republican
In discussing the possible political and
military combinations which may arise
in Europe, should the present war last
beyond the limits of the inaugural cam
paign, it is curious to notice the compar
atively small account taken of Austria.
Judging from the flippant opinions of
ill-informed and unreflecting writers, one
would imagine the Anstrian empire had
suddenly sunk from the rank of a first
to that of a third-rate power, and that
whichever cause she decided to espouse
could not be materially strengthened
thereby. This misapprehension, for it
is a very gross one, arises from the fact
that Austria has lost prestige by the un
fortunate results of the French-Italian
war of 1H59, and the Prussian-Italian
war of 18GG. But it roust be remem
bered that in both these struggles she
was badly overweighted, and in the last
one seriously hampered by attempting
to sustain her authority on the Itulian
peninsula. Three hundred thousand
veteran soldiers were sent there, and the
absence of these enabled Prussia to win
the battle of Sadowa, and thus accom
plish the temporary humiliation of Fran
cis Joseph. -But Austria has learned
wisdom by this sharp experience,
af)4 in point of available resour
ces arid ' iuteirtal , jiarmQiiy, we: Are
inclined to believe her stronger than
for thirty years past. Her population
numbers nearly forty millions, and she
can, in emergency, send into, the field at
least GOO.VQO men. The fighting quality
of these men scarcely neP's comment.
Properly Ijaiidledj flcfa are nq batter
troops on the oontuiout, as tbe Napoleon
ic wars of the lutterpurt of the lust cen
tury and the early portion of the present
one abundantly prove. - Bonaparte was
accostomcd to say that tbe Archduke
Unaries was tne most iurniiu.. oppo-
saved from a worse fate by the non-arn-vat
of Archduke John, confirm, that esti
mate. Vor twenty years An"!" was
literally the head and npnt of th Kupr
ueaa eoalitlon, and, bnt for tha tenacity
with which she elung to U under the
most adverse circumstances, the son of
Maria Louisa wonld have worn a more
imposing title than King of Rome and
l)uk of BeicbstadU Her armies are
thoroughly diciPl'toJ , nd perfectly
equipped with the most t"Ppred weap
ons, and, single-handed, she is a inatcH
for either Prussia or France. In

government, and the despotio rule of the
Emperor had done much to alienate the
sympathies of his subject; but, sinoe

and brought into hearty union Hungary,
Bohemia and Gallicia, and linked them
to Vienna by ties of mutual confidence
and interest. In short, Austria is fully
. a t
prepared tor fight, whenever the, aspect
of the situation promises to make fight
ing desirable.' With whom she will join
her forces, if the war becomes general,
is a Bomewhat difficult matter to deter
mine. It must bo borne in mind, how
ever, that notwithstanding theGermatiic
origin of both nations, and the many
alliances which have at intervals united
them, there is no love between Prussia
and Austria. The former has grown at
the expense of the latter, and from the
acauisition of Silesia by Frederick the
Great, down to. the campuign of
four rears aeo. Austria ' has suf
fered from : the : steady advances of
her young and powerful rival, i The
unification of Germany, literally traiw
luted, means a common (lug and
a common government from the Baltic
to the Adriatic, and unless Austria can
manage to arrest the elements pow at
work, a half conturv hence will see the
empire a thing of the past, and the dy
nasty of the ' Hapsburgs a forgotten
dream. Sho will not, therefore, be likely
to contribute anything to the aggrandize
ment of Prussia, nor. on the other hand,
will her traditions or her policy permit
the extension oi am iorr,uicn
some diplomatic bargain can be- effected
by which she may regain what was lost
at Sadowa. Austria will adhere to her
nnntrnlitv until the very last moment,
and if sho draws the sword at all, the
party which secures its services must pay
a high price, for in many respects these
services would bo more valuable than
those even of Russia.

in the case of M'lle Morlacchi, who, as
most of our readers are aware, has pur
chased a farm on the outskirts of the
ItllLnn nn the UoHtnn and
Lowell railroad, about twenty miles from
Uoston. I he larm-nouse, u sucn it can
be called, is situated about half a mile
from the station, close to the roadside
and under the brow ot a tlncKiy-woouuu
hill. It is a modern, wooden-framed
building, painted in light drab color,
finnlv fin lulled and in thorough repair.
Ther ' are two rjarlors tin the
first floor, which are not only
elegantly furnished, but their arrange
ment is indicative of the most refiued
taste. Rare pictures adorn the walls.
French, Italian, German and English
books are collected in a large libraty
case at one end of the room, and lying
upon the mnrble-topped tables as though
(Vncl, fmm (lie hnnils of the reader nuiv
be seen some of the works of the best
writers in several of the modern lan
guages. When attending to ncr house
hold duties. M'lle Morlacchi wears a
neat calico dress, her hnir hanging below
her waist in two plain braids. ' She hns
with her nn enmnnninn anil friend. M'lle
Antonio, an artist reputed to be of ster
ling merit, and a may oi umieniauic
beauty, refinement and grace. The farm
consists of about forty acren, tbe most
of which ia under" a good stuto of im
provement. It is well stocked with all
that is required for its proper cultiva
tionhorses, cows, pigs, sheep, poultry,
etc. M'lle Morlacchi gives her personal
attention to eyery detail, rising in the
morning at five o'clock and speudingthe
greater portion of the day in performing
the varied duties appertaining to the
care of a country place. ' She keeps a
carriuge and saddle-horse, the latter for
her especial service, and as she is
an excellent horse-woman, she attracts
no little attention as she ennters through
the streets of the town. She is delighted
with her venture, and says that she could
not be coaxed to visit Boaton. When
going into the woods sho dons a pair of
trowsers, a coat and hat, and thoso who
remember seeing her on the stage in
mnle attire, will easily picture to them
selves the jaunty figure she makes, Her
sister is now on the way to Milan, but
will return in the fall, bringing her father
with her. Whilo M ile Morlacchi, premier-,
will be absent gaining new laurels
in the fulfillment of her winter engage
ments, they will be attending to the du
ties of the farm. Several managers are
corresponding with her for the coming
season, but she is at present unprepared
to make definite arrangements, her mind
being too much occupied with her novel
home cares. She will, rmwpYur. h
