After all. the present duko deBcrves mucii, Indulgence For his boyhood, after his father's death, was far from i nappy, and his Russian mother, one of the most selfish women in existence; had so little maternal feeling, that "t one moment she had actually secured the commitment of her two sons to tho great French reformatory of Mettray. i as Incorrigible*, where they would hav. had tu associate with young crim? inals, and wad only prevented at the last moment from putting nor project into execution, by the Intervention "t relatives Ulld Mi tl'ls.

Tlie first Duchesae do Morny was by birth a I'rlncesr, Sophlo Troubetzkey. i Her mother. Catherine Pushkin, daugh? ter of Russia's most famous poet, wits unhappily nie.rrie? to Prince .Sergius Troubetzkey. The prlncetss, a very pretty woman, was tho object of sucn undisguised admiration on the part of Nicholas I., that when her little girl, Sophie, was born, her paternity was ascribed to the Cznr, a report to which color was lent later on. when on So? phie's marriage to the late Due do Morny, she received a dowry of a mil - I lion rubles from Emperor Alexander II., supposedly h.r half-brother. Sergius Troubetzkey at any rale was convln cd of the truth of the 3tory, and he deter? mined to bid,-* Iiis time and to ?et ev< n with Nicholas, In a manner cal? culated tO humiliate him. Not long afterwards Nicholas became I Infatuated by the beauty of a Mine.

The Emperor caused It to be Intimated to the lively Lav inla that she had attracted his att.-u | tlon. To his amazement and disgust j Lavlnla declined In a very categorical I and haughty manner the advances of her sovereign. ^? - Accepting his defeat, he said nothing, [ attributing the lady's attitude to vlr I tue, which he regarded as so rare as ! to be worthy of respect, and to af I feotlon for her husband. But his an j ger knew no bounds when some Weeks later Serge Troubetzkey. who hart learned of the matter, succeeded In In? ducing Lavlnla to elope with him. Tills was more than Nicholas could bear. He had the fugitive couple ar? rested just at the moment when they were about to cross tho frontier Into Austria, and brought back by the police to .st. Petersburg, where by his orders the lady was restored to her husband, while Selgius Trounetzkey, deprived of his military rank and princely title, disappeared In the direction of Siberia, and waa never heard of again by any of the members of his family.
