Since her last escapade in the Monti- bello affair the Princess Pauline Mettor- nich is more than ever the topic of conversation in French and Austrian court circles, and innumerable anecdotes of her former "eccentricities" crowd the European papers, and give them a o-pnuine American flavor, for a wonder. flow she used to make her unfortunate husbanda'ake her evenings, in disguise, to the lowest quarters of Paris, "to see the elephant; how she frequented con cert saloons, and thus became the natroness of the brazen Therese, sinner of very equivocal, or, rather, altogether unequivocal songs, whom she induced her dearest friend Eugenie to have iuvited to the Tuilleries and sing before the Emperor; how she had involved her husband in ever so many duels by her strange freaks and fancies, etc., etc. In discussing all ot which gossip, people remember that Pauline's father was also a very eccentric person, and died in an insane asylum. lie also has thus become the subiect of conversation again, ana anecdotes of his earlier life are about as much sought after as the stories con cerning bis pretty aaugnier. ais name was Count Moritz von Sandor, Lord of Kotzetein. and a dozen other vast estates; Magnate of Hungary, etc., etc ; and be was known in his younger days as the boldest rider and the wildest saipegrace in Hungary, which is saying a great deal, considering that in Hun gary the very children grow up with the horses, and morality is not recognizee except in the lowest ranks. One day he was invited to dinner by the Archduke Joseph, Palatine of Hungary. No peo ple pay so much reverence to gorgeous ness.of dress and appearance as the Hungarians. Dressed in the most mag nificent costume of Hungarian mag nates, Count Sandor mounted his Ara bian charger, and rode into the Eeenigs burg at Open. The servants of the Archduke tried to hold bis horse, in or der to allow the Count to dismount. "Back," he thundered, and he rode into the vestibule, and up the grand staircase of the castle, all covered with maeniS- 'cent carpets, straight into the ante chamber. . . " Open the door, cried he to the doorkeeper, who obeyed mechanically, and Count Sandor, on his horse, rode straight into the brilliant assembly sur rounding the Archduke Palatine, seeing whom he pretended to have just awak ened from a dream, and said: " Pardon, your Royal Highness! In an unfortu nate moment of absent mindedness I forgot to dismount from my horse. I shall at once rectify the mistake." Say ing which he gracefully backed his horse out of the room, and rode down stairs with the utmost concern. He was never invited again to the Archduke's dinner, but he had won twelve baskets of cham pagne, and there is little doubt that his beautiful daughter would undertake a similar risk for the same reward. Uarrlrk and Mile. :lalron. From the Chicago Inter-Ocean. When Garrick visited Paris in 1752, and attended the Theatre Francais, he prophesied that Mile. Clairon would soon excel all her competitors, although at that time Mile. Dumesnil was the reign ing favorite. When he was again in Paris, in 17C5, several persons of the first distinction of both soxes, English and French, met by appointment at the house of a distinguished person. Mr. and Mrs. Garrick and Mile. Clairon were of the company. The conversation turned for some time upon belles lettres, in which the merits of various authors were discussed with equal judgment and candor. Many critical observations were made on the action and eloquence of the French and English theaters; and at the request of the company La Clairon and David Garrick consented to exhibit va rious specimens of their theatrical tal ents, which produced much entertain ment. This friendly contest lasted for a considerable time with great animation on both sides. The company loudly de clared their approbation of the two ex hibitions in the strongest terms. It was remarked that the French gave the pre ference to Mr. Garrick, and that the En glish adjudged the victory to Mile. Clai ron; but as the greater number of the former were but little acquainted with the English language, Mr. Garrick was MEMPHIS, TENN.: WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 5, 1874. induced to relate a certain fact which happened under his own observation a few days previoOsly, and afterward to exhibit it by action. "A father," he said, " was fondling his child at an open window, from whence they looked into the street; by one unlucky effort the baby sprang from his futber's arms, fell upon thd ground, and died on the spot. What followed," he continued, "waB spoken in a langioge everybody under stood, for it was that of nature itself." He then immediately threw himself into the attitude in which the father ap peared at the time the child leaped from his arms. The influence which the rep resentation of the father's agony pro duced upon the company, as exhibited by Garrick, was such that the greatest astonishment was actually succeeded by abundant tears. As soon as the cora- pany had recovered, Mile. Clairon sprang up from her seat, and, throwing her arms around Garrick s neck, kissed him on bath cheeks, apologizing to Mrs. Garrick for her conduct by saying " that, really she could not help the impulse, and that it was her way of expressing applause." Exchange. Henry Ward Keerher en the fate or Mr. JUavla. Rev. Henry Ward Beecher once deliv ered a long sermon npon the fate of Mr. Davis, which is suggestive of the lines: . That mercy I to othors show. That mercy show to me. In conclusion he said: I speak with a certain reluctance, and the thought oftentimes, when it comes, even touches me with grief, but I believe that Mr. Davis, for example, will be hung. Already the scene rises before me. He is tried; he is convicted; he stands on the scaffold. AH nations have watched the sure process of the law; all nations have listened to the charges laid at bis door; all nations gather about the scaffold. There are some thiugs to plead for him. He is a man of distinguished ability; he has conducted his war with pertinacity and courage; he was the be loved leader of the multitudes of the South, and even now millions of them would shield him if tbey could. He has a wife who loves him, and children who cannot understand his crime; he is sur rounded by a mighty, innumerable North, who, the war being over and its hot passions cooled, have no hate and no malice, and nothing worse than a chastened, sorrowful indignation toward him. Ihey would release him if they could.' If they could forget the dead; if they were not compassed about with a great cloud of witnesses; if their bells of victory were not drowned by their bells of mourning; if they could forget their country; if they could forget their God, they could give way to their pity for a brother man in his extremity. Tbey hear voices from over the sea; . voices of sympathy for bim; voices of pleading, occasional voices of threatening may be. But nothing avails; he can't be spared; he would not consent to peace; he would not be just; he would be a patriot; he must die. And the ax comes down, and the world shud ders, and the great traitor is dead. And I claim that such a scene and spectacle as that will do more for the stability of the country and for the cause of public order than almost any dozen great acts of these last lour years. It will take rank among the sublimities of history. It will have a moral dignity and weight which no magnificent battle we have fought could have. It will engage the attention of mankind as none of our battles have. It will be more easily comprehended by them. It will be re bellion and slavery epitomized and em bodied in the form and person of their chief man, and then beheaded for their sins. And the people will understand that simple, tragio thing. And it will sink into them; and it will hallow love in their feeling forever more. Let it come, then. History waits for it. The f;reatest work of modern times our oyal- war, I mean waits for its cap stone, Let it be raised. And, in the words of our great . martyr, when he wrote the decree which has made him immortal: " Upon this, our coming solemn actot justice, we invoke the blessing of Al mighty God and the considerate judg ment of mankind." Amen and amen. Cbaa. Dickens and Ilia Wire. The London correspondent o: the New York Arcadian says of Dickens' domestic unhappiness: "In the last American papers which have come to hand I see that Wilkie Col lins' drama of "The Frozen Deep" has been performed in Boston. You are, perhaps, aware that Collins has recently been engaged in turning this play into a novel. "The Frozen Deep ' awakens manv sad reflections in my mind, as that 'piece was indirectly the means of bring- lUg 8D0UI UJUV.U Ui Aj.n i. ii o uuwta.iv unhappiness. The whole story of his separation from his wife has never yet been properly told, and in all probability never will be, as his widow is resolved to maintain the silence she has so long kept. But it is generally known that the family is dissatisfied with Forester's book. Your readers may have heard ot the grand amateur performances given in 1859 at the Free Trade Hall, Man chester, in aid of the Douglass Jerrold Fund. Dickens, Collins, Shirley Brooks, Mark Lemon, aud many other celebrated writers took parts. The ladies' charac ters were interpreted by professional ac cesses. Among these was Miss Ellen Ternao. She was then a fresh, pleasant looking .girl, not especially pretty, but possessing a good figure and an ex trcmely agreeable manner. If ever the German poet's doctrine of elective affinities was proved to be true, it wag when Dickens and Miss Ternan met. It was evident to nearly all that the two were mutually infatuated. lick ens was constantly at her side, though his manner was carelully guarded. Mrs. Dickens was with the party, but did not appear to notice the intimacy. Very soon after these performances Miss Ter nan, at Dickens' wish, left the stage. His affection for her was said to have been purely platonic, and I have never met any one who was disposed to dis pute this belief. But, nevertheless, it was this intimacy which was the fioal cause of the rupture between Dickens and his wife. For many years prior to 1859 their mutual relations had been anything but happy, although I do not think that Mrs. Dickens had previously had any well grounded cause for jeal ousy. A short time after the party re turned from Manchester Mr. Dickens went into a fashionable jeweler's at the West End, where she was in the habit of dealing, and was asked by one ot the firm, who knew ber well, bow she liked her new bracelet, she said that she did not understand him, as she had not re ceived any such article. Ihe gentle man then explained that it was one Mr. Dickens had ordered for his wife, with a likeness and some hair in it. This, of course, opened Mrs. Dickens eyes, and a separation speedily followed. Since that Mrs. Dickens has lived very quietly in a pretty little house near the Regent's i'ark, where ber children, whose respect and affection she has always enjoyed, have ever been frequent visitors. m a Stout old lady getting out of avenue car Well, that is a relief, anyhow.
