Tbo Lady mt Bt7., This celebrated favorite of Charles VII of France one who has inberrted from her own time to ouri. after a loue lapse ef more than four centuries, the distinct ive sobriquet of " the beautiful Agneg was the daughter of M. Soreau (vulgarly called Sorel. aacordfne to De Mezerai), the Seigneur de St. Geran, a nuble gen tleman of lourame. She wag born In 1409. and in 1431, when in her two-and-twentieth year, re ceived the appointment of attendant or lady of honor to Isabella, vjueen of Sa nies and Sicilv. from whose court and service she passed into that of Mary, daughter of Louis II, Dnke of Anjon, afterwards Queen of Charles VLT, where her rank, education, and, more than these, her marvelous beauty, all con spired to win ber the perilous attention of a Kins who was younger than herself. Agnes was not seventeen, as the fair authoress of the " Histoire des Favor ites" asserts she was at this time, but had attained the more mature age of at least twenty-eight, or perhaps thirty, as Oliver de fa Marche, a contemporary, when recording: some event which took ylace in 1444, tells us that " the King had just elevated a poor lady, a pretty woman called Agnes Sorel, and placed her in such triumph and power that ber state was comparable to that of the great Princesses of the realm. Her features were Dcautuui ana ex- DreBsive ot extreme gentleness: ner skin has been described as being of the hue of alabaster, and ber hair was mar velouBlv eolden in its brightness. She was then in the full bloom and beauty of womanhood, and possessed a vivacity of manner whicn spread an air lull ot charms on tbe least of her actions, so that tbe most insensible souls could not resist her" (Histoire des Favorites). " Heaven," says the authoress, "had not only endowed Agnes with the charms of face; she had an air full of grace, an admirable figure, more wit than any other woman in the world, and the most delicate and finely turned, with a cer tain greatness of soul which led her naturally to generosity; all her inclina tions were noble; she was attentive, coaipassionate, ardent in friendship, dis creet, sincere, and, ia short, altogether fitte4 to make herself beloved to dis traction." D. Mezerai vntes of her as a very agreeable and generous Jdv, who, by setting herself up as the equai of the greatest Princesses, became the envy of the Court ui the scandal of France." With all her errors, Agnes was admitted to be lavish to the poor, to be pious, generally bumble, and always pairtoac and full of puUiC Pirit- Tne majority of historians have written most favor ably of ber, and pe'er did tip mistress of a King, especially a King who yas her junior, make to wise a nse of Ler perilous power, which ska ever employed only for the good of others. Pnde and an extreme love of dress are the chief errors alleged against her; but to her in fluence over Charles VII must be attrib uted all the good that ever appeared in him, and the effort to which he was roused that essay by which, at last, the , invading English wera driven from the soil of France; for he. had been a lover of pleasure, " and of the fair aex, which never can be a vice," adds Voltaire, "gave when it leads to vicious actions." Charles was neither a warlike nor a high-spirited King. Tba influence of England in France after tha death of its conqueror, Henry V, was to nobly sustained by his brother, tbe Duke of Bedford, that after the death of Charles VI bis successor bad been crowned at Poictisra, Bheiins being then in posses sian of tha foe; and be was but the monarch of a nominal kingdom, Fran ce having greatly aided the English in vaders, as she waa rent by two rival fac tions, one led by the Duke of Burgundy and the other by tbe Duke of Orleans. CbwJU'S VI had been alternately the trisoner pf each, and the Dauphin was he scoff of Loth, often a fugitive, and a! way in dr,g destruction. V.'sien il-o iaiter IiMame Cbarlea VII, l i lliant villi Cjnt la ntil ti J , r a I u i CSUJU cat s pa " me) rreucn in their English wars and by a body Scottish troops under the Earl of Buchan, who was aonstaule of t ranee, he made soma show of resistance, when ail hope geemed at an end, and to this anwonted activity he was rouaed by Agnes 8oreL"" " He had already conceived tba feebie idea of retiring into Langaeedoc or Dauphiny, and contenting himself with the defense of theae minor province., which must evenUally have been wrested from him. Mary ot Anjon, a Princeas of great prudence and merit, vehemently opposed this measure, which she saw would lead to a general deser tion of his cans by the French people. -Tbe fair Agnes Sorel," says Hume, "wb lid ia entire amity with the Qseen, seconded all her rmonstxaaes, and threatened that if he (Charles) thus pusuiauimously threw away the scepter BLIC MEMPHIS. TENN.: of France, she would seek at tha Court of Englaud, a fortune that waa corre spondent to her wishes. Thus, tba love of bar on on hand and dread of logins: her on thn other, roused in tbe braaat of Charles VU a glow of coaraca -which neither just ambition nor pure patriot ism could kindle, and be resolved to dis pute avery inch of French soil with bis imperious enemies, rather than yield inglorionsly to an evil fortune and to tha loss of his crown and mistress. And thus, in urging bim to the Geld, Mary of Anjou was forced to seek tba assistance of tha fair rival who bad supplanted ber; and she seems at all times to have born with aingular sweetness of temper with a resignation that soma might think savored of indifference or stupid itythe alienation of tha King's love for herself; and neither by action or word does she seem ever to have , re proached the reigning favorite. . Bnt a new ally came in tbe person of Joan of Arc;' victory attended her ban ners, and in two months Charles VII was crowned again, a step considered necessary after tbe double coronation of young Unnry of England at Westmin ster and Paris. Tbe loss of the lattar city soon followed. The Maid ot Or leans perished at tbe stake; but ber mission was accomplished France was free, and England was glad to sign the treaty of Arras. After this consummation Charles abandoned himself entirely to tbe so ciety of Agnes Sorel; "ease and pros perity," according to De Mezerai, " plunged him into dalliance and effem inate softness." She was his greatest passion, states Duclos, and the trOst worthy of it. She loved Charles ten derly for himself, and had no other ob ject in ber conduct than the glory of her somewhat soft lover and the good of the State. Agnes Sorel, he adds, dis tinguished herself by qualities preferable to tbose which are usually found in her sex rather an obscure phrase. But, despitu what some allege of ber humility, ostentation and love of splendor are said by others to be among her weak nesses; but suoh are pardonable enough in a beautiful woman. At court she appeared in all the state of a royal Princess. Her apartments were more expensively decorated with hangings of silk and taffeta, with furni ture and tapestries, than those of the Queen, Mary of Anjou. She had a larger and more splendid retinue of servants than her royal mistress, and had quite as much reverence shown ber. tier coaches, her linen, her vessels of gold and silver. her rings and other jewelry, all surpassed in beauty and in value those ot the Queen. Even ber kitchen surpassed that of the neglected wife; "for with this woman, called Agnes, whom I have seen and known," says the author of tha "Chroniqne des Dues de Bourgogne, " the Kins' waa terriblv besotted. i Her robes were more costly and her trains were longer than those worn by any of the royal Princesses; and it waa remembered that, to show the extreme fairness of her skin and beautiful contour of ber bust, she had all her dresses more decollctees. or cut lower in tront, than had ever been the custom at the Court of France. In some "burst of temper Agnes has been accused of having so arrogantly disregarded the feelings of the Queen that she was struck on the mouth by the sou of the latter, the Dauphin, at terward the cruel, subtle and savage Louis XI, 'in whose whole character there was but oueiundoniably redeem' ing point a love for his mother with a tender reverence for her memory. Agnes died in the year 1450, as many historians have affirmed, of poison, a common suspicion in those days and for long afur, De Mezerai states the cir cumstance broadly and clearly that, when the King was at Jumiegcs, four teen miles from Rouen, where there was a vast and famous abbey containing no less than 2400 monks and lay brethren, " Tbev i. e.. the courtiers poisoned his dear Agnes de Soreau, without whom he could not live one moment."' He Thoncbt He Knew. In one of the cities of New Hamp shire, some years since, a man named H was elected Mayor, and very im portant he thought his position. During his term ot office a hre company sent word that they should visit the city, and remain several days. The Mayor called a meeting of tha city council to see wba should be done toward entertain in the firemen. He wanted' to show the hospitality of the city in its most munificent form, and proposed that a collation Bhould be given to the strangers. "And what, asked ope of (be Alder . M An rnn nrnnnse to Tint on the table for the collation?' " We will give them," said his Honor, in reply, " hot coffee and s jrdines." ' One of the Council thought that sar dines and hot coffee wee hardly up to tbe mark for the hungry firemeu. , , I know bitter," said the Mayor, m an angry tone, ''sardines ere hearty, and will be just what tha men need." " Perhaps, said an Alderman, nis Honor does not know what sardines ." The Mayor sprang to his feet, angry all ovar. " I know.' be shouted, what sardines are as well as you do, or any other mem ber of the Board.. I've eaten enough of them in my life they are easily pre pared. Just take two pieces of bread and put a piece of ham between them, and then your aardine is made." His Honor sat down amid a roar oi lougbUr. H d got things, such as sar dines and sandwiches, sorter mixed np n his mind. Keep ttte aksjel Feet Was aw. Dio Lewis in To-Day. 1 During the damp and cold season, the legs should be encased in very thick liiit woolen drawera, the feet in thick woolen stockings, ( which must be changed every day,) and the shoe soles must be as broad as the feet whea fully spread, so that the blood shall have free fiaasage. If the feet are squeeied in the east the circulation is checked, and coldness is inevitable. This free circu lation cannot be secured by a loose p- per with a narrow sole. It when the toot stand, naked on a sheet of paper it measures three and a half inches, the sole most measure three and a half. I will suppose yon nave done all this faithfully, and yet your fel aad legs are cold. Now add more woolen, or if too are to travel much in tbe cars, or in a aleuzh. rrocnra a lair of chame'S-skia or wash-leather drawers, which I have tound to be moat satisfactory. I have known a number of ladies aHlicted with hot and aching heads, and lahqcst city cmnn.ATioir. ' THURSDAYEVENING. DECEMBER 11. 1873" other 'evidense of congestion about the upper parts, who were completely re lieved by a pair of chamois-skin draw era and broad-soled shoes. Three ladies in every four suffer from some conges tion la the upper' part of the body. . 1 is fell in a fullness ef the head, in sore throat, in palpitation of tbe heart, tor pid liver, and in many other ways, It is well known that a hot foot-bath will relieve for the time being any and all of these diOiculties. This bath draws tbe blood into the legs and fret, reliev ing the congestion above. What tha hot-hath does for an hour, the broad soled shoes, with thick woolen stock ings, aud a1 pair of . flannel drawers,' with a pair ef wash-leather drawers added, will do permanently; of course I ant sneaking of cold weather. No one hesitates to multiply the clothing about tbe trunk. Wby hesitate to increase the clothing about tbe legs? As a preventive of piany common affections about thn chest, throat aud head, including nasal catarrh, I know nothing so effective as the dress of the lower extremities which I am advocating. . The bath is a good thing, exercise is a good thing, friction is a good thing, but, after all, onr main dependence in this climate must ever be, during the cold season, warm clothing. Already we overdo this about our trunks, but not one person in ten wears t'.othing enough about tbe legs and leet. One of tbe discoveries made by the deep-sea sounding of tbe Challenger ex pedition, which arrived recently at Ber muda from the Azores, is a mountain ridge that extends from Greenland to , V. a mniilli nf , I. a A n-i n . 11 n tlta .A. ,1 tun uiuv, vt iuu niu.tvu. v.. uww... of South America, and includes tbe whole volcanic region of the Azorei. This ridge is nowhere more than two miles below the ocean level. Toward the east it is divided between Europe and Africa by an immense valley from two and a hall to three miles in depth. The valley reaches north of tbe equator as far as the fifty-second degree of latitude. If tins valley were not under water, it would present a view of whose magnificence no conception can be formed, for in the nortb it extends to tbe gigantic moun tains of Cape Verde and the Canary islands, the latter of which, with the peak of Teneriffe, weuld be 2G.O0O feet in bight. Madeira would command, from a bight of 20,000 feet, a view of this valley and another stretching toward the Mediterra nean. The Savannah Advertiser says: There is a curious monomaniac on St. Cathe rine's Island. , An old negro woman named Mary Jane, who has been sitting on tbe wharf at that place from morning till night, and from night till ' morning for tbe last two years, during which time it is said by those living there that she has never left the Bpot. Her feod is carried to her by a couple of little ne gro children. She eats what Bhe fancies and sends the tin kettle .back for the next meal. She does not have any comforts for sleeping around ber, and it is not known whether she sleeps to any considerable extent or not. She always seems wide awake upon the approach of any one, and is never caught napping. A method has been discovered by which leather scraps can be dissolved into a pulp and pressed into various articles. When taken out of the mould it is hard and tough. Its surface is then polished, and it is ready for sale. We may yet comb our hair with skate straps, button our clotbes with old boots, and drink out of an old harness. REMOVAL.
