Th? Uutprtu ot KuitU.
The Paris ConxtitutioHoel, of the 28th ult,
lms a very curious letter upon Russian affairs.
1 he aim of the letter, which is a very lengthy
one, is to prove that the Czar is at this moment
by no means averse from the idea of making
proposition ol peace to the allied powers.; and
it is apropos to this that the writer of the let
ter gives some details of the interior of the
(ourt ot Russia. I he present Km press Marie,
the Czar s wife, is represented as strongly in
clined toward a line of conduct that may lead
to peace, und as urging her husband toward
his point unceasi-igly. It is said that her in
fluence has caused his journey to the Crimea,
and that her object in making him undertake
this journey was, thut he shoiHd, with his own
eyes, see the wornout state of his troops, the
discontent of the populations, ihe danger*, in
short, that surround the long-protracted con
tinuance of the war. The Empress's inffueuce
is represented as serving to counterbalance
that ot the Grand Duke Constantiue, and to
maintain iu office, against every chance of dis
grace, the man whom she thinks the safest
counsellor of the House of Romanoff (for the
reason that he is so disliked by the fanatical
Moscow party) the Arch Chaucellor Count Nes
selrode. Since the fall of Sebastopol, it is
said that the Empress's power over her hus
band's mind has been growing daily ; and to
show how she can compass what she has once
resolved to do, a little anecdote of her is told:
I he Czarewitch Alexander married for love
and not for any political consideration, espous
ing one ot the loveliest but poorest tuid least
important of German princesflfes, the daughter
of the Grand Duke of Hesse of Darmstadt.
For many reasons the Czar was ill-disposed to
ward the marriage , but his eon would hear of
no other, and the father ended by yielding.
The Princess Marie, of Darmstadt, left her
father's most dull and impoverished court, and
a hoine where she had tasted but few joys of
any kind, lor the most splendid of northern
capitals where the second place was to be her's.
Her own interior was a happy one, but be
tween her father-in-law and herself there
reigned, for the first few months, small affec
tion. He took little or no notice of her, and
she made no apparent efforts to win his favor ;
above all, made no obsequious advances to
ward him. When the day of St. Nicholas
came, the Czar's fete day, the reigning Ein
Sircss and princesses were much astonished to
ind that alone, of all the family, theCzarewna,
as the wife of the heir apparent is styled, took
no part in the various little wofks that each
member of it made a point of getting ready
in order to present them to its chief. No re
mark, however, was made cn either side, and
the day came. ,
The presents were given and accepted, and
when ail was over the Grand Duchess Marie
rose from her place, advanced toward the Czar
and sinking before him on one kuee, with an
air of great reverence repeated the long Credo
of the Greek Church, from the first word to the
last, in Russian, and with the purest pronuncia
tion. J lie Czar, comprehending instantane
ously what u force of will and application had
been required to render possible this feat, (the
Princess having been ignorantof a single Rus
sian word but a few months before,)rapturous
ly embraced his daughter-in-law, and from that
hour really, and not figuratively, "took her to
liis heart.'' Now this story, told by the Consti
futionnel, u doubtedly does show, on the part
of the Czarine a tenacity of purpose that, right
ly used, may be of no little consequence in her
present position and in that of her husband. It
is never without interest to know the charac
ter* of those whose destinies cafl upon ihem
for good or-for evil, to play a part in the great
drama of politics, and therefore this insight in
to the relative positions of the Czar Alexander
and his consort. may be worth having.
From her father, the late Grand Duke Louis,
the Empress of Russia can scarcely have got
anything save the problematic virtue yclept
good nature; his failings were those which
eoiild be inherited by no woman, and were
nearly all comprised in a great love of beer!
but from her mother it is to be hoped she may
have inherited much ; for a more distinguished
woman lias been rarely placed at the head of
a State, whether great or- small. The Grand
Duchess of Darmstadt was a woman of clear
judgment, liberal opinions, sound sense, large
heart, and the finest tact. If her daughter (who
was brought up by her more like an English
woman than a German) has succeeded to half
her sterling excellence, and has over her hus
band half the Influeuce that is reported, we
may hope for a modification in the obstinate
spirit ot Russian jiolicy, and the country her
husband governs may look forward to reforms
that wilt put it more upon a level with the na
tions around it.
Horrible Tragedy?The Schooner Kudorn
Sent!led In Long Inland Sound?Arreat
of the Negro Cook on Snuplclon of hav
ing Matunrrcd her Kntlre Crew.
The New York Herdld of yesterday pub
lishes a lengthy account of the suspected mur
der of the Captain and entire crew of a
schooner in Long Island Souud, by the negro
cook. The vessel was tho schooner Eudora,
Captain William Palmer, of Deep River, Conn.
She was observed to anchor near City Island,
Long Island Sound, on "Wednesday last, and
tho inhabitants of the Island noticed that she
had a crew of four persons, including the cook.
On Friday the negro was seen to leave in the
yawl boat, and shortly after it was discovered
that the schooner was in a sinking condition.
Suspecting something wrong, some persons on
the Island pursued the negro and arrested him,
together with the plunder he had taken from
the vessel. A strong guard was placed over
the negro, and as soon as morning dawned a
boat, well manned, put off to the spot where
Ihe schooner had sunk. The masts were, for
the most part, out of the water, and it being
low tide, the top of the binnacle was even with
the stream. Long poles, with hooks attached
to them, were inserted into the stateroom, for
the purpose of grappling with something that
might serve to clear up the horrible mystery
that seemed to bang around the ill-fated craft.
After an anxious search of some fifteen or
twenty minutes, the surprise and horror of all
may be better imagined than described, when
a pillow and a bed quilt, saturated with blood,
were raised to the surface of the water. That
some foul deed had boen committed, there was
then but little doubt in the minds of the boat
men: and hence they set themselves eagerly to
work, in order, if possible, to raise some of the
orpsi s ch they had good reason to suppo.'*
were entombed in the sunken vessel
Mr. Levins cirt a hole in the binnacle with
an axe, and Aucceeding iu grappling with what
he believed (and still believes) was a dead
body. He raised the bundle slowly with the
boat-hook%, but, unfortunately, before it could
be got out of the cabin, the mass gave way,
and nothing was brought to the surface but a
large flag (the burgee) of the vessel, which was
actually drippiug with gore, and completely
dyed from its original color of white to that of
red. The supposition at the time was that one
of the bodios had been wrapped up in this
Hag, and stowed away in some corner of the
The searrh was continued all day, resulting
in the finding of additional evidences of crime
iu the form of bloody clothing and bed-clothes.
A tarpaulin hat, with the rim cut as if with
an axe or large knife, formed one of the most
convincing proofs of violence.
Rat to return to the prisoner. Alter having
partaken of a hearty broafast, Wilson, for snch
is his name, was again qneatioued as to the
sinking of the schooner. He seemed utterly
careless relative to the charges preferred against
him, and treated the entire matter with comic
indifference. When Mr. Levinas said to him
" You know very well that you have murdered
the crew aboard that sehooner just before
breakfast on Friday morning," he seemed
somewhat agitated, and tried to appear calm
and indifferent, by saying in return?"That's
a pretty good guess, I believe you are all witches
here; hadn't you bettor try me here and have
doue with it." In answer to various other
questions put to hiui, he said that his name
was George Wilson; that he was thirty-one
| years of age, aud wan a native of Pennsylva
nia, but latterly belonged to New York. He
also said that his father was a free negro, while
his mother was a slave, lie confessed being
a very passionate man, aud told an anecdote of
his youth, whereiu his master is said to have
told him that his hot temper would ruin him
some dav or other, and that he had better be
careful lest he should get into some seriouB
It would seem as though there was no end
to his conversation while at the City Island,
for the mouths of the good people here are full
of the prisoner's curious sayings while he so
journed among them. Among the expressions
Wilson is said to have made use of when ques
tioned by Mr. Rofe, are the following: " I aon't
want to convict myself, but I might as well die
for killiug a sheep as a lamb." Then again
he said, " Some men get sorry for committing
crime, and are terribly afraid of the law, but
I am not one of that sort; 1 might as well ride
to Heaven in a coach and four as in a wheel
barrow." In reference to his passionate tem
per when crossed, he said, " When I get mad
I swell up as big as a barrel and nearly burst
with r^ge."
Sometimes Wilson flatly denies all know
ledge of the crime imputed to him, while at
other times his conversation and manner
amounted almost to a confession ot^uilt. His
statements were in many cases voluntary. In
fact, he seemed to take a pleasure in arguing
with the villagers upon, the shedding of blood.
At one time he said, " Most people believe that
a murdered man's blood will not wash out,
now I believe it will."
A commitment being obtained from one of
the county magistrates, it was determined to
take Wilson to White Plains and there lodge
him in jail. Accordingly, a wagon was pro
cured, and under a guard of three men, armed
with revolvers, the prisoner was safely con
ducted to prison. On the road he came very
near escaping by untying the ropes with which
he was bound.
