Fifty years ago there were in the Court at Naples two younf! ladies of royal blood, whose names often appear in the journals of that day. The younger was but a girl ot ten years, inaeea, ana yet still in that almost tropical climate she was budding into womanhood, and had become' one of the many princesses in Europe about whose (uture marriage rumor busied itself. The other was eight years older. Both were beautiful and gifted; both educated according to their rank, high bred, accomplished, ambitious, and free from all taint in the blue blood that flowed in their veins. To make uae of a common phrase, both the young ladies were in the market for a royal marriage alliance. After receiv ing and declining various proposals, Caroline, the elder, was wedded to the Duke de Berri, beir to the throne of France, and became the mother of the Connt de Chambord, present pretender to the kingdom, as successor of the great monarch. After some years Maria Christina, the younger, was espoused to Ferdinand VII, of Spain, and gave birth to Isabella II, the exiled Queen of Spaiu, aVid to her sis ter, the Duchess of Montpensier. Let us take both Caroline and Maria Chris tina for the text of our remarks. The former left the theater in Paris on the evening of February 14, 1820, to drive home. Her husband, the Duke, was a6SU8Bi tinted the moment after he had seen her off. Seven months and more afterward she gave birth to a male child, whose advent into the world was hailed by the Bourbonisto with delisiotis joy. Thev called him the "Gift of God," gave him at the baptismal font the title of t)ieu Uonne, styiea mm in ineir au dresses to the throne since Bonaparte hadjustdied at St. Helena the "Child of Europe,,' and, recorded their satisfac tion by the purchase and presentation ef an estate that has ever since 'liven him the name of the Count de Chambord. Caroline, his mother, when Charles X, in 1830, abdicated the crown in this boy's favor, holding him by the hand, left France by stated marches, escorted by the household troops, tied to La Vendee, and endeavored to excite the peasantry to rise in fvor of her son. &uo failed, was imprisoned, gave birth to a chili, and then confessed that she ubo been private) married to Count Lu itbessi Palli. This dtfctroyed every sen tiaienf of chivalrous colftisj.on which the Btruifia of a brave woman fivr the rigbts of er 8 naturally produced, and she) returned to hut fcu.'hand. never after ward to appear in p3liU.Cs! aaira. Her escutcheon was blotted. TilMVd A THROVE BY 8TRATftV. Maria Christina, who married Ferdi nand VII of Spain, prevailed on her husband, to whom she had borne two children, both females, to annul the Salic law, which prevailed in'Spain as io France, and to bequeath his scepter to his eliest daughter, Isabella, and fail ing her to her sister, Dona Luisa, the Infanta, now the wiu of the Due de Montpensier, Louis Philippe's youngest sou. This was done, aud the aucient Cortes of the kingdom were summoned to recognize and sjrear fealty to the bairess of the throne. By the same in strooient Maria Christina was apiiuisted Governing Queen or Kegent in the event of Ferdinand dying before Isa bella had attained ter majority. The Cortes, a merely ceremonial body, pos sessing no deliberative function what ever, gave a formal assent to the ar rangement; and on the death of her hus band la 1833 Chr.stina ii:mfd the direc tion nt the jnvernment.which she access- fully held, witii the exception of the brif interval waeJi r.pairrw e amr wreoiu ascendant, till 1846, when Isabella was rieclareJ of age. From Maf, J841, till August, 1.33, Espartero governeJ Spain. During this liise Christina took reluge in Paris, and was tcnrteously rntertained by the King of the jTei:h a distinction by no means entirely duA? in hur Kuiirbon blood. ' Her children, over whom she was known to have, and naturally, unbounded influence, were the Queen and Ufapta of Spain; and Louis Philipee was fa tiO shrewd a per sooage to neglect showing civiuj to a lady with whom the choice of husband for those interesting young princesses would be sure to real, Christira never considered her struggle with Kspartero's fiarty to be hopeless. She published a oog manifesto to ths Spanish people, whose character at that dT she seemed to understand perforily. It contained just the right word at the fit time. was declared a just and clement Quee , her foes were branded as traitors to fepain, the treatment she had received was pronounced to be scandalously un grateful, and ths was at once recalled by acclamation. In power of Espart r melted away like mew tCv a sum mer a sa, and he owed it to the sped of his horse thai ha g?t safe oa boarJ a British bip. C MEMPHIS, TENN.: A OOKKX H ROMANCK. Christina's return to Madrid was a triumph from coast to capital. But a spot on her escutcheon, like that which doomed her sister, could not be effaced. Within less than three months after the death of her husband, Ferdinand VII, she had been privately married to Fer dinand Munoz, a common soldier, guards mat at the palace, recommended for nothing but his youth and handsome person. Although this marriage was not publicly acknowledged until ten years afterward, when, in 1841. tho guardsman was created Duo de Rean zeres, yet it was perfectly understood in court circles. From the moment thiit this misalliance was known Queen Chris tina's moral force departed. Immorali ties are forgiven in Spain; taint of blood never. Noblesse oblige is a rule which admits of no exceptions. ' Though the daughter of a monarch, sister of a king, and mother of a sovereign, though the widow of Ferdinand VII and Queen Regent of the kingdom, ber claim to be enrolled in the royal list where the great Isabella's name is inscribed, was gone. She might die in the very odor of sanctity, but her . remains would never repose is tho solemn shadows of the Escorial. Queen Isabella II came of bad stock. Her lather and mother were more remarkable for dissimulation, falsehood and pruriency than anything else, and her grandpa rents on both sides, particularly the Nea politan, were even worse. Iu the sculp ture gallery of the British Museum, on the right band as you enter, are a series of busts of the Roman Emperors, which, as physiognomical study are with out a rival. A discolored one ot these, which, when the light falls in a proper direction, has a wonderful stimulus of life, is a remarkable representation of Fran cis I of Naples, Isabella's maternal grandfather. It is the bust of the Em peror Nero, and is one of those marvel lous instances of the same face reap pearing after hundreds of years. More lustful and avaricious than his proto type, he was also a more perfect dissem bler. " Qui nescit dissimulare nescit regnare," was the motto handed down to the Queen of Spain when she began her reign in 1843 ut the age of thirteen years and one month. But Bhe inherited from the ancestral stock worse vices than dis simulation, aud from the day of her marriage she always had, like her mother and grandfather, her favorite. Isabella's misbehaving lifk. Spaniards have so much of the ori ental about them that they are prone to exuaperate their enemies by assailing the fair fame of their wives and daugh ters; but, alas! Queen Isabella for seven and twenty years has had. no fuir lame to sully. There was never a revo lution or an outbreak which called troops into the Geld during herreigu when from hill .to hill and from fortress to battle ment Soldados de la puta was not scorn fully shouted after her soldiers. That ill-assorted betrothal into which she was entrapped during the orgies of a mid night ball on August 28, 184G; the inde cent haste in which public announce ment of it was made the next morning; the wicked speed into which events were spurted on by that cunning old fox at the Tuileries; the marriage under per sonal protests from the enraged and dis gusted girl on the 10th of October, and the utter loathing with which she re garded the vile transactions that had made merchandise of her maternal in stincts and trallicked with her virture, have been urged always by her friends a; her excuse. It was Indeed this marriage the turning point of Isabella's career, the saddest moment of her life. She reigned twenty-two years after that, but ever falling lower in the affection and respect of her people. In Spain there are always two governments one ostensible and responsible, the other hid den and irresponsible; one in front of the Cortes, the other behind the throne: one making laws, the other preparing hindrances. The former is the Cabinet; the latter the Camarilla. They are the chronic diseases of Spain, these Camarillas. Their move ments are occult, their intercourse with the crown illicit, their action on the na tion criminal. But they have, existed ever since the Bourbons first entered Spain, and Isabella's, composed of Mar fori, W fifynrite, the Archbishop of Trianbpolis '(father flavet), her con fessor for the ex Queen is very devo tional, and always, when at the Escorial, head rvdnieht mass within the horrid cumbers,' el fjadridero, of dead sove reigns -an2 "later rairocino, ice uieea ing nun. If the Queen, in 18tiS, would hove returned to Madrid without Mar fori, her mipiaters would have guaran teed "the siUjaiWR." frhe was at ber waUring place. Her live liyluj pl)i! dren she haa given birth to mue-r were with her. She bad been hesitating all day. To Madrid without her favorite; to Pari with him. So great was her in decision that a 5 p.m. part of the royal luggage was marked , IfsWajrw til part " Pamplona." THE DOWNFALL. Thj 4.rchbishop was festive (he had with him church property valued at 1,000,000, stolen from the Usaorial); Marlori cross arrogance and hatred bursting from his visage; the nun weep ing and praying, and Isabella contempt uous, a look of fallen grandeur vis.ble cn her face. Love of power triumphed at last. She decided to banish her Camarilla, return to Madrid, throw the Prince of 4 sturias into the arms of Es partero, and appeU to him to save her. it was too late. - She had been deposed. Tbet very night, at the Zarznela Theater, a Hisnuo, tf which the following is a translated verse, u stjng amid wild applause in Madrid: "P'iwn with the Bourbons, down! Tim very stones do cry ; From end to end of Spain they shoot, ' U'e'll unuer or we' II die.' Without a home nhall Fender, As the scorned Hebrew race. As an outcast from her country, the of the shamsle face," The ex Queen has several times at tempted a.i,"" these last few years to recover her bold poa the Spanish peo ple. It has been useless.

WEDNESDAY EVENING. JANUARY 7. 1874 Margaret of Parma, adopted child of the Duke de Chambord and granddaughter of his persecuted sister, is the young Pretender's wife. About her even the calumnies of Spain need not fall barm less, for they have never arisen. And if the flag of Olmrles VII should ever be unfurled wiil.iu sight of the snow-capped rani."- ot the Gtiaderrama, we may be sure thai those whom its folds protect will bear no cry of de la puta from its bitterest foes. OTouuell and lira. Horlarlly. The following wurof words, which oc curred between the Liberator and iu termagant of Dublin, is not new perhaps to many of our older readers, but it will bear a revival. It was done on a wager between O'Connell, and his friends, that he could make this woman who could outface all opponents with her vitupera tion, lose her temper .(and this was the point of the wager), without his using an indelicate word. It was a complete suc cess. "VVhat's the price of your walking sticks, Mrs. What's-ycur-name?" " Moriarity, sir, is my name, and I'm not ashamed of it; and one and sixpence is the price of the stick. It is chape as dirt, so it is." " One and sixpence for a walking stick that cost von twopence! Why, you're po better than an imposter." " Twopence, granny, and imposther in your own teeth! (Jut your stick, you cantankerous jacknips! ' Keep a civil tongue in your bead,' -su old disgnol." "Stop your jaw, or I'll make, you go faster nor you came." " Don't be in a passion, you ancient radius. Anger will only wrinkle your beauty." - " Be this an' that, if you go on wid your impudence, I'll tau your hide, though it d be a pity to dirty my fists on you." Here Biddy poured out a torrent of tall words, too transcendental for our paces. " Easy now, easy now, don't choke yourself with fine language, you whisky drinking parallelogram !" " What s that you call me, you raurd. herin' villain?" " 1'Hcall you what you Bre a parallel ogram and there's not a judge or a jury in Dublin that would say it's a libel." "Oh! tare an ouns, you ruffian! to call a honest woman a parabellygram to her face. I'm none ot your parabelly grums, you thief s breed. ' "Oli! not you indeed! J suppose the next thing will be to deny that there's an hypethenuse concealed in your house?' " That's a lie, for you. I never had such a thing in my house, you swindler." "Oh! you can't deny the charge, you miserable sub-multiple of a duplicate ratio." Here poor Biddy gasped for breath, and her antagonist improved the occa sion. " While I have a tongue I'll give you the benefit of it, you inimitable per iphery. Look at her, boys! There she st.indn, a convicted perpendicular in petticoats. She is trembling with guilt to tho very extremity of her corollaries. Ah! you're found out, you rectilineal antecedent and equiangular basket womau, you abandoned similitude of the bit-ectiou of a vortex ! " The tongue was struck dumb, but the hands retained their powers. Catching up a snucepnn, she would have revenged on her foeinan's nose the ofl'eiiBes of bis lips, hut like a worsted hero before Ilium " he mingled in the throng."
