Dr. ilazel wag a young pnysician irotn Snath Carolina, who had 20 ne through the siege of Sumter with a devotion and constancy that had found their way into general orders, and that had returned in the shape of a rain more precious to a soldier than sun to flowers the rain of official recognition. In addition to the compliments received he was promoted. As he sipped his claret, several ladies entered, some attended and some unat tended. French custom makes a cafe as cosmopolitan as the street. All sexes congregate there, and allstratas of soci ety; custom simply insists that the com mon laws ot sosiety should oe ooeyea that those of the demi-monde shall not advertise their profession, that the gam bler shall net display his cards, trio guer rilla shall not uncoil his lasso, the grand dame exhibit her prudery, the detective his insincerity, and the priest his pro tests and confessional. Appetite admits of no divided sovereignty, and hence, at meal time, the t rench recognize only one class in society, that of the superla tively hungry. The Princess Salm-Salm returned tre salutation of several French officers as she entered, and bowed once or twice in acknowledgment of salutes rendered by the Auslrians of her husband's brigade. Beyond these she seemed to prefer iso lation and privacy. Among the Belgians there was a major who had a huge yel low beard, a great coarse voice, a depth of chest like an ox, a sword belt whose extent would girth a hogshead. In French cafes gentlemen very - rarely speak above the low conversational tones of the drawing room. To be boisterious is to be either drunk or a blackguard. This Belgian Major Med omark, of the Foreign Legion did not seem to be drunk, and' yet as he looked st the P.-inccr.: Salm-Salm his voice would change its intonation, and deepen harshly and gratingly. If he meant to be offensive he succeeded first-rate. The Princess pushed back her plate and arose as one who felt that she was the subject of conversation without un derstanding the words of it. As she passed through the door Medomark, boisterously and in great glee, called out a slang term of the circus, and shouted: "Hoopla!" The Agnes Le Clerc that was of the sawdust and tights, the Princess Salm Salm that is now of the titles and dia monds, hear, thn brutal cry, and felt to her heart the studied insult. Turning in stantly, she came again half into the cafe her eyes full and discolored with passion, and her face so white that it ap peared as if the woman was in mortal pain. She could not speak though she tried hard, poor thing, but she looked once at Medomark as if to crush1 him where he sat, tnd once to Hazel, who un derstood it all now, and arose as she again retired. He went straight to his American countrywoman. At the cowardly infer ence of the Belgian the French officers had laughed and the Austrians had ap plauded. Even those of ber husband s brigade iiad not uttered protest or de manded apology. Hazel found her in tears. " You have been insulted," he said. "I know it, or rather, I may say I saw it. Not understanding German, if, in deed, the Belgians speak German, I have to rely for my opinion more upon the manner than the matter of the insult. Your husband is away, you are an American lady, you are a countrywo man of mine, you are in trouble, and need a protector. Will you trust your honor in my hands?" The actress was a brave, proud wo man, born, perhaps, to rule men as much by the force of her will as the bizarre style of her bpauty and her physical development. She took Ilazel g hand and thanked him, and bade him chastise the insolent bully. She knew very well what chastisement meant in the lan guage of a soldier, and she was a soldier's wife. She did not even evince interest enough to be curious. Perhaps her parsion kept her from this at least her champion bowed low to her as he retired, thinking her the coldest woman a man ever put his life iD jeopardy for. Cold she was not. She simply consid ered what was done for her as being done because of her inalienable right to have it done. She was not familiar, she only tolerated. LAliaKWT CITY MEMPHIS, TENN.: WEDNESDAY EVENING, JUNE 3, 1874. Hazel, in statute, was very slight. As he stood up before Medomark the huge Belgian glowered upon him as Goliah of Gath might have done upon David. "Do you speak English?" he asked of the Major. " A little." " Enough to understand tbe truth when I tell it to you?" , " Perhaps, if it is not so plain that for the telling I will havi to break every bone in your body." Medomark's voice was one of that un controllable kind that run away with a subject in spite of itself. He meant to be quiet, so as not to attract attention, but he was so rude that many of the speakers quit eatieg to look on. " That lady," continued Hazel, " who has just gone out is a countrywoman of mine. She may have been an actress, just as you may have been a hangman's son; but, whatever she may have been, she is a woman. We do not insult wo men in the country where I once lived, nor do we permit it to be done elsewhere. Will you apologize to her?" " I will not." " Will you accept this card and let me send a friend to yon?" " I will, with pleasure." " Then I wish you good day, gentle men; and Hazel bowed to all as he went out like a man who had just finished his dinner. Medomark was brave besides, he was an officer. There were, therefore, but two courses left to him but two things to do to accept Hazel's cartel or to refuse it. In preference to the disgrace he chose the duello. Hazel found his second speedily. He, too, was a soldier one of Shelby's best, James Wood who would go to any extreme on earth for a friend. When two men mean business the final arrangements are simply matters of form. On the morning after Medomark's insult in the cafe, Wood called upon him early. During the diy the preliminaries were all amicably agrt:?J upon, and at sunrise the next morning, about a quar ter of a mile southeast ot the American burying-ground, Hazel and Medomark met at ten paces with dueling pistols. The Belgian's second was a young French lieutenant named Massic, who won both the position and the word. When the men took their places, Hazel had the sun in his eyes, and this annoy ed him at first, for it was very hot and penetrating. They fired twice at each other. The first time both missed the second time Hazel struck Medomark upon the outside point of the right shoul der, injuring the bone greatly, and sever ing an artery that bled as if the man would bleed to death. Prompt and efficient surgical skill, however, saved his life. The duel ended after the second fire. The Princess Salm Salm, so splendidly vindicated at the hands of her countryman, wag the toast thereafter of the officers of the garrison. The prince on his return could not ren der thanks enough, nor seek to show his appreciation of the chivalrous act by too many evidences of a more substantial gratitude, The city being under martial law, a court-martial was soon convened for- tbe trial of all who were engaged in the duel. A sentence, however, was never reached. Upon the request of Bazaine, the court was dismissed and the prisoners set at liberty. Medomark recovered fully only to be desperately wounded again at Qeretora, where, after long and devoted attention on the part of Dr. Hazel, a surgeon in the Republi can army, he was restored to both health and liberty , SpnnlNta Miniiffglera. What a strange drive it was! Beyond the Posado everything was asleep but the stars that still held their vigils, yet blinked more frequently, I fancied, as if quite ready to be relieved. Not a vehicle passed us, but everand anon we Btopped at solitary houses, where we evidently were expected, for men came out with lanterns, handed small bundles to the driver, talked in a low tone, and off we went again, without additional passen gers. "This is very queer," I said to the Blinker. "How did these people know we should pass before daylight? The regular hour of departure from Pampeluna is seven o'clock. Yet peo ple are up and waiting for us." " Ma dam." replied the Blinker, " do you sup pose it would pay to run this omnibus from Pampeluna to Bayonne for two passengers I Wot at all. It carries con traband goods, and the men who supply the bundles are smugglers. The drivers know how to manage. They are great friends with the frontier officers." I was consorting with smugglers! The sensation was novel, and I began to feel like the heroine in a melodrama who innocently assists at the plottings of the heavy villains. VY ben we next stopped I left the vehicle to inspect the smug glers, aud found them no worse looking than other people, one of them being so polite as to drink my health in the cognac I had refused. On learning my nationality, he declared he should go to my country, for Spain was growing so toor that an honest man couldn't live r . ... tit r r , even by stealing, was air. smuggler a Republican? Mr. Smuggler laughed. " My politics are a little of all (un poca de todas). This, ycu see, is very convenient Whichever .party comes up I agree with, and so I keep my temper, and make money whenever I get a chance." I never saw a happier U.oking man than Mr. Smuggler. It is a great mistake to think that good people are the most light-hearted and' contented. They are bothered' by conscience and worried by everlasting salvation. This world is most enjoyed by airy sinners clever enough to escape detection. Kate Field's Letter. The Singhalese have some queer no tions. In some respects the women have sDecial rights, for it oftea happens that a woman marrifs all the brothers of the same familv. There was one whs had six such husbands, aud she had as many children, and each child calls all the six, lather. CIRCULATION. The San Francisco Alta tells the fol lowing anecdote of Senator Jones: In the days when " boiled shirts " were a Sunday luxury the owners of those arti cles had their names stamped on the band below the plaits, and as the fashion of vests was not tolerated at that time (this was not in the "earlier years of the reign of George III ") tbe name of a man could be easily ascertained by glancing at the waistband, which was fully exposed to view. On one occasion Mr. Jones had attired himself hastily, and in the hurry had put on a shirt stamped with the name of his room mate J. Owens. "Helle!" said a friend, " you've borrowed a biled shirt for your Sunday holiday." " Oh. no," said Jones, " this is my shirt." "Well, there's another man's name on it," pointing to the convincing proof, " J. Owens." But, quick as a flash, when Jones saw bis mistake, he turned it to advantage: "Oh, that is the way our Welsh folks spell the family names, J o w-e-n-s, Jo-wens, or Jones, as you call it! D'ye see?" A yeung bachelor who had been ap pointed sheriff was called npon to serve an attachment against a beautiful young widow. He accordingly called upon her and said: "Madam, I have an attach ment for you." The widow blushed, and said his attachment was reciprocated. "You don't understand me; rou must proceed to court." " I know it is leap year, sir, but I prefer you to do the courting." " Mrs. P., this is no time for trifling; the justice is waiting." "The justice! why, I prefer a parson." Mr. Sartoris' anxiety to reside abroad is said to have been by no means dis tantly related to an apprehension ex cited Hy what he has read of the char acter of the average American mother-in-law.

They are com pounded of vegetable ingredients, and eon tain nothing which can be injurious to the human constitution. Other remedies adver tised as cures for Coniumption, probably con tain opium, which is a somewhat dangerous drug in all cases, and if taken freely by con sumptive patients, it must do great injury; lor US lenaeucy is lo coanna mo murum mat ter in the system, which, of course, must make a cure impossible. Schenck's Pulmonio Byru ii warranted not to contain a particle of opium. It is composed of powerful but harmless herbs, whioh act on the lungs, liver, stomach, and blood, and thus correct all mor bid secretions, and expel all the diseased mat ter from the body. These are the only means by which Consumption ean be cured, and as Bchenck's Pulmonic kiyrup.
