One beautiful morn in the month of May, When the flowers were all covered with spray, I stood near my window, fronting the well, And calmly watched for a dear gaielle. The lilies were blooming sweetly that day , The children were out in the forest at play; I drew up the shade, and soft was the breeie, That gently waved mid flowers and trees. Away in the east I saw a dark cloud. Which spread over earth like a mantling shroud; Hoarse thunders were muttering sullen that way. And lightning flashes were vivid at play. The herd on the lawn looked wildly around. And raindrops were falling fait to the ground. When the sun came forth mid a shower of tears. And quickly a brilliant rainbow appears. It spread far out with a radiant glow, Encompass ieg earth in a ciroling bow ; From north to south it enveloped the skies. With rapturous beauty dailing the eyes. As I gazed on the tranquil scene that day. Far in the distance it faded away, And left in the heavens, floating above, A soft fleecy cloud, sweet emblem of love. MRS. M. E. R. MsMpiua. May 26th. BAD miJiCES. The Bueaian Scandal and Wbat It atpT treat's. It is impossible not to feel something like compassion for the Russian Grand Duke, who, as the German newspapers assure us, has just been arrested in St. Petersburg for purloining his mother's diamonds to give them to a pretty French actress. He is a youth of twenty-four, the oldest son of the Grand Duke Con- stantine, and, in the face of the story, in all probability as much of a simpleton as of a scamp. Of what particular use is he likely herealter to be, either to him self, or to the Imperial family, or to Rus sia? If he had been the son of a private gentleman, the family linen which he has so dismally smirched would proba bly have been washed at borne; and in any event it would have been possible for him to change his name, emigrate, and take another start in life. But a Russian Grand Duke cannot disappear thus un ceremoniously from the publio eye; and the pretty French actress who was the cause of his felonious folly will be won derfully unlike her class in general if she fails to keep alive the scandal she has caused. The fortune of these orna ments of their sex is made, like the fame of the Sioux brave, by the scalps they wear at their girdles. To ruin the son of a French banker or disgrace a British peer has sufficed for the renown of many a celebrity of the demi-monde, but what are such achievements in comparison with tbe public degradation of a Prince of the imperial house of Romanoff? Felonious princes are nothing new, it ia true, in the history of the world, and even of the comparatively modern world. A prince of the blood royal of France, the Count of Charolais, in the early part of the last century, after a variety of outrages upon law and order, was finally arrested for the wanton mur der of a poor tiler. Uis royal high ness, who was a very good shot, used to amuse himself by silting in the windows of the Palais Royal and taking "pot shots" at casual persons on the house topi within range. He killed his man in the case of the poor tiler aforesaid, was arrested, tried and found guilty ol mur der. Of course it was impossible to put a prince ot blood to death for such an offense; but the King, his cousin, handed tbe Count his pardon duly made out, signed and Bealed, blandly adding that be felt it his duty to inlortu Lis royal highness that the pardon of the man who should shoot him was also prepared and would be signed on tbe first oppor tunity. Still nearer our own times was tbe dark accusation brought against his royal highness the Duke of Cumber land, in England, and never formally dealt with, that he had murdered one of his servants in a fit of rage. Another British Prince, tbe Duke of Gloucester, figured less than a hundred years ago as defendant in a very notorious and scan dalous case of crim. con. The Duke Charles ot Brunswick, who died the other day in Geneva, leaving his colossal fortune to the virtuous people of the city of Calvin, who now propose ia acknowl U m&h jUljJLlJJjlJLi. LAIIGEST CITY MEMPHIS, TENN.: THURDAY EVENING, MAY 28, 1874. edgment of the bequest to honor bis ;.t i j - memory witn a nanusome monument, was generally understood during the greater part of his lifa to have rivaled- the later Princes of tbe line of Ctusar in- the variety and pertinacity of his of- i lenses against the statutes of all civil ized realms, as well as against the eter nal and universal principles of decency and morality. The grandfather of the reigning Grand Duke of Baden enjoyed no better reputation, and the Elector of Hesse, who was expelled from his do minions in 16G6 by the Prussians, soon earned in the Austrian palace ia which he took refuge as foul a name as he left behind him in his own ancestral domin ions. But the case of the young Grand Duke Nicholas differ from all of these. His position is worse even than that of the Cardinal Prnce De Rohan, who played so dolefully shameful a part in the famouB drama o? the crown diamonds of France. Even if he should take tbe desperate step which tbe English poet tells us is the only remedy left to lovely woman after she has stonped to folly, his suicide would be a fresh feather in the cap of tbe Circe who has enslaved bim. On the whole, it is as hopeless a case as has been heard of in our time, and brings sharply to mind the story told of the stern old Marshal von Wrangel, the veteran of the veterans of Prussia. Tbe Marshall only son having got him self into a miserable position in very much the same way, the iron old soldier sent for him. threw a loaded pistol on the table, said to him: "When a Prus sian officer has disgraced himself there is but one thing for him to do," and left the room. The son blew out his brains; and from that day forth his name wag heard no more from his father's lips. AUSTRALIA. A Death-Bed Interview fcjr lele ffranb. The Australian overland telegraph ex tends for 1,900 miles across the great wastes of Australia, from Adelaide on the south to Port Darwin on the north. The stations are few and far apart, and (he line is consequently greatly exposed to attacks from the natives, who pull the wire down, and cut away great quan tities of it for the purpose of arming the points of their spears. They also smash the porcelain insulators and use the sharp edged pieces to scrape their spear blades into shape. Each station is a small fort in itself, at which six men reside. Barrow creek is 1,200 miles from Ade laide and 700 miles from Port Darwin, while it is in the midst of a district thickly peopled with blacks. On the evening of Sunday, February 22, all the men of this station were lying out of doors smoking, when they were sudden ly attacked from the eastern corner of the building by a large party of natives, who speared Mr. Stapleton, the master. As the Englishmen had left their arms inside, they made a rush for the entrance but they were driven back by a shower of spears, which wounded two of them. Finding their retreat cut off, they ran around the building in the hope that the natives would follow them, and so be drawn away from the doorway. Happi ly for them the natives gave chase; and thus, when the poor fellows came round sgain to the front of the house, tbey found the door nnguarded. One, how ever was tatally wounded as be ran. Tbey at once seized their rifles, and soon drove the natives off. They then telegraphed to Adelaide news of what had happened, and Dr. Gosse, one of the Adelaide surgeons, did all that a surgeon can do by prescription and ad vice for patients who are 1,200 miles away. Poor Mr. Stapleton was beyond cure, but he and his wife, who was living at Adelaide, 1,200 miles away, were able to exchange a few parting words. Dr. Gosse had to insist that the wounded men should be kept awake all night, for fear that their flesh might have been poisoned by the spears. Three days la ter Mr. Flint, the wounded operator, sent the following message: "At 1 p.m. natives attempted to surround station. Three shots tire'i, killing one native. Fires all round station. Expect anoth er attack. Strict guard kept. Please hurry relief." Happily relief was near at hand, for five teamsters and their superintendent were within a few hours of Barrow's Creek. Moreover, Mr. Tucker, the station master at another creek, "who had been travelling south ward along the line, yesterday attached his pocket instrument to the wire at Dixon's Creek, and spoke Mr. Todd, the superintendent at Adelaide." Mr. Tuo ker and the fire men who were with him were ordered to proceed with all despatch to Barrow's Creek, where they relieved tbe little garrison. A Lodlcrone Incident In t'hnrrb. A ludicrous incident occurred on a late Sunday in one of the San Francisco churches. Ine opening nymn tad been ; sung, the voluntary finished, and tl.i; ; minister fairly launched on the s-r:n"n. The organist rose with the prou.il i n; sciousness of having performed bis (' -well, and, taking a seat, revere-. .' bowed his head upon the choir r -: From sermon to slumber is but a t' p, j and before he was aware of it the d io . -. v god bad closed his eyes, and he wa- : i the land of dreams. Gently as sk ! the babe on the mother's breast bluin- j bered the organist, while from the pulpit i volleyed and thundered the invectives 1 against sin aud sinners. The " thW.j " was finished, and the lastly reach, d, and i still the onranist slept. The closintr i hymn was given out and read, but no sound came from the organ, except the gentle sighing of the bellows. The good pastor looked appeaUugly toward the organ-loft, and the eyes of a majority of the congregation were turn ed in that direction. The sexton rushed up the stairs, and, seizing the pedal master by tbe shoulder, shook him vin dictively. The somnolent, partially awakened by bumping his head against the gas burner, rubbed bis eyes and went CIIICULATION. to sleep again. The situation was be coming unpleasant, when the minister, looking prematurely solemn, " pitched the tune, ' and the congregation fell in ) one by one. As each oae sang in the time he deemed fittest, the clergyman got through first, and finally tbe others, one by one, finished, except a cracked falsetto that bad got lost, and was vainly looking for a good place to stop. Disre garding the latter as being beneath no tice, the minister pronounced tbe ben ediction, and the congregation walked ut in silence. A meeting of the trustees has been called to decide whether the organist shall be shot or burned. CATHOLIC SISTERHOODS. Retreats of tue Slaters ot Charity. From the Baltimore 8n.) One of the most important meetings of Sisters of Charity that has ever trans pired at St. Joseph'i (Emmitsburg) is the mother-hous j of the Sisters of Char ity in North America, and it baa been the custom for many years to hold regu lar retreats for members of the commun ity within its precincts. The present retreat will be attended by the Superior esses of all the religious institutions academies, asylums, hospitals, etc , governed by Sisters of Charity in thia country. The retreat will probably con tinue for seven days. On the 25th day of May there will be assembled, at Angers, Department of Main-et-Loire, France, a body of relig ious ladies, drawn from nearly every civilized nation, and from many of the semi-civiliied countries of the earth, to elect a chief officer for their Order. The Order is that of the Roman Catho lic Sisterhood of ear Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd, and there will be represented in the electoral council about 140 monasteries, located in Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Oceanica. The Order, as is generally known, has for its object the reclamation and refor mation of fallen women and girls, who either voluntarily present themselves for admission or are committed to its custody by competent authority. Prior to 1835, this work was carried on only under the direction of isolated monas teries, under various titles, but in that year the order became known as an or ganized body, having a supreme source of authority, and the exemplary lady, Marie De St. Eupbraxie Polletier, who then became its leader and held the of fice, through successive elections, for thirty three years, or np to the time of her decease, in April, 1808. According to the best obtainable information, the Order now includes about 125 monaster ies and nearly 30,000 nuns. To show how Washington society con ducts itself at a grand wedding, we quote from a letter to an exchange: "It seems that towards the end of the eve ning, at the wedding of Miss Stewart, in the supper room, there was such a riot ing, drinking champagne, and breaking of goblets and dishes, that Mrs. Stewart was compelled to order the supper room closed. Such conduct as this has been noted at several parties in Washington this winter." It is evident that tbe capi tal is a good field of labor for crusaders. A Marion, Iowa, woman poured seve ral quarts of boiling water down her husband's back recently. She catches a glimpse of the spring-time flowers through the bars of the jail, while he is studying tbe pattern of the carpet through the slats of his bed. Tbey both agree that tbe next lime there arises the question of stovewood for supper in the family, moral suasion will be tbe thing. A Raleigh, N. C, newspaper contains the advertisement of Smith, " tbe great A merican house movist." PICNICS.
