TIlE LOVE OF ELEANORE DUPLAY.
Hlow ltobcsplorro Appeared in- :the A
Eyes of Has Betrothed... , .
Eleanore Duplay, the beloved 9f
Robespiere, wrote thus to a female
friend concerning her lover, under date w
of Jan. 8,41794: .
"'Perhaps you would be surprised if k
I told you I thought him onlytoo con
scientious-so afraid to do wrong that
he sometimes takes too long in maknin II
up his mind. Yet so It is. Do not think ti
of him as a hunter of priests, for he is
nothing of that sort. lie does not like a
their impostures, of course. I remember 1l
how angry he was last'time he wrote
to Arras, when he heard thelnf pietdnd af
to the poor country people that they n
wrought miracles on a certaiu townse
man, though they did not dare to men- el
tion it to his fellow townsmen, who
knew no miracle had' been wrought at tl
all. And le does not care for the triv
ial dogmas with whiek ,religion has a
been overladen. Did 'you not care
about them either, Jeanette, in the old eC
times; but I believe you like anything ti
which is getting beaten, and dogmas o
certainly have had a bad .line. of it
lately. But, if you put aside dogmas e
and impostures; just as in politics you
must put aside personal details which of- n
ten obscure principles: In the true sense
of the word there is no more religious si
man than M1aximillain. Ills hak. al
ways been a religious family. There is b
a tradition at Arias thatrthey fled from Ii
Ireland for religion's sake 200 years ji
ago. Maximillian was always friend
ly to the chapter of Paris when he was p
in the constituent. He spoke, too, in to
favor of larger pensions for the humble Il
clergy. lIe hates the idea of the 'feast
of reason' (fancy worshiping a woman
he would not even speak to !) and all
the other Herbertist excesses.
"0, if you could hear him. I some
times fancy him a priest himself. lie
is to me what the priest used to be
when I was a little girl. lHe is always b
proper when others are wicked-dresses b
neatly when others slouch about like "
slovens. He has his old statemen- 1
Racine, Corneille, Voltaire and Ii.s gos
pel-Rousseau. lie reads them to us J
sometimes, not us the false priests used u
to drone tbelf gospels that they were I
paid to preach, but so beautifully that I
in the pathetic parts we sometimes all t
burst into tears. He believes it all so t
thoroughly; he is so conscious of a mis- I
sion to teach it. The crowds gather t
round him in the Jacobinus, as round a a
great preacher, to hear his text and his
sermon. lie says it So one cannot dis
believe. Doyou know,' I sometimes t
carry the thought further, and ask my
self whether one so good and to pure
can become a husband to me. I think I
he ought to be celibate as a priest! Beut
if 1 told him so he would be shocked, a
poor man! It is contrary to the civil a
constitution of the clergy.
,"Then you call him cruel. I Iam sure a
I have never seeh him so. I\'hcn we I
are walking together in the Champs
Elysee with his dear dog Blount fol- a
lowing us. we sometimes sit dcown ,andl
the Savoyards come trooping around,
and I never saw him setid them away I
without giving them something. And
he is so kind to us all, and so thought
ful. I can see your look of horror, you
little proselyte of La Rioche Jacquelin ,
and the Chouans! You point sie to
the guillotine and ask mer, is not that
his work ?
'"No, Joanette, I ti, nour think it i-.
I will allow this rnutch, that I loUme
times wish he had done more to keep
back the others. I fancy he do-s not
always realize things thmat are dohp un.
der cover of his reputation. He thinks
so much of principles that he some
times forgets facts. I have never told
him so, for wnen w are hloano togethl
er (it is not often-every morning be 10,
at the committee of public safety, eve',
ry afternoon at the Copvention, every
evening at the Jacobins) .--he always
tries to eeesape from these terrible
things, and to give play to bis faoc."

In imodern times no army ever made
better use of its legs-not in retreat,
but in continuous attack-than the
'"foot-cavalry'! of Stonewall Jackson in
18GI and 1862. T'he following descrip
tion of ito sen by whose aid Stonewall
Jackson drove three federal armles, h
under GeueraIa Shields, Fresonqt andh
Banks-each of them strgonger numer.
eially and infinitely better armed and a
better found than his own-out of the
valley of Virginia in 1861, was written
from Stonewall Jackson's headquarters
by an English eye-witness, who was
accompanied by Lord, then Colonel,
Wolsley : "As we advanced, the road g
was thickly crowded by the refluent
tide of sick and furloughed soldiers.
Such gaunt, wan, bony, famished
skeletons, many of them shoeless and a
hatless, almost all in rags, the flame of
life burnt down to the socket, the eyes P
deepsunken and lusterless, the hair r
matted and tangled like a wild beast's, t
it had never been my fortune t6 en
counter before on earth. Suffering,
hungry, thirsty and reduced as the
ipoor f'llows were, not one faint-heart.
