Almost content |>orary with Madame
Bonaparte were the Misses Caton, the
daughters of lUcbard Caton, the emi
nent Kugiish merchant residing in
Baltimore,. ami granddaughters of
Charles Car mil,* of Carrolton. These I
ladies, after flourishing as belles in Bal
timore, vlsite«l Kngland, where their
rare levlinese won for them the name
of the American Graces. The Duke of
Wellington presented them at the court
ofthe Prince ISegent, upon whose sated
heart their beauty made so great an
impression that he exclaimed: "Is it
(HMsible that the world can produce
such beautiful women!'' Mary, the
eldest, married the Marquis of Welles
ley, the elder brother of the Duke of
Wellington; Kluabeth married Karon
Stafford: Louise became the Duchess of
Leeds. They all died childless, but
left a fragrant memory behind them in
the high circles of English society.
Between lf»2l> and 1K30 a decade of
lovely women 'adorned Baltimore so
ciety, who more than realized Lord
Lvtton's ideal of female beauty, of
whom, it has been said that they only
wanted a larger field to win the iramor- (
tal renown of a Cleopatra, a Helm of
Troy and a Mary Stuart.
AaMf IbfK Beautiful Women
Miss (ieorgiauna MacCausland was fa
cile prince pa. She has been described
to the writer by one who frequently saw
her as possessing eyes of that rare but
beautiful violet tint which Poe gave his
young Eulalie. Her form was faultless
and might have served Phidias as a
model for bis most beautiful creations.
Her bair was glossy black and fell over
a forehead as pure and white as polished
marbie, while in her lovely cheeks the
war of the roses was fought again. Iu a
word, she was like the gardener's pretty
A certain miracle of symmetry,
A miniature of Involutes*. nil grace
Summed up anil cloaed in her fair form.
She was no leas accomplished than
beautiful, and when she sang one of the
old ballads, accompanying herself on
the harp, St. Cecelia seemed to have de
scended to earth. Her beauty and ac
complishments' drew many admirers to
her feet—the young, the "wealthy, the
distinguished. She eave her hand to
the young, gifted ana enthusiastic .Ed
ward Hinbney, who wiw pronounced by
Poe to l>e the finest of American lyric
poets. She inspired Pinkney's exquis
ite serenade, commencing:
I.ook out upon the stars, my love,
Aucl shame them with thine eye*.
Another famous Belle.
Heurietta Von Kaptf, the daughterof
a wealthy (terman merchant, was one
of the most dashing belles of this period
of Baltimore social life. She was notso
remarkable for her mere personal beau
ty as for the vivacity of her manners
and sparkling conversation. This made
her the life of every company at a time
when the Monumental City was social
ly far more attractive than it is at the
present time.. Sixty years ago, when
Baltimore was a small city of sixty
thousand inhabitants, its best society
was composed of a single set, very ex
clusive and aristocratic, it is tnie, but
the manners were more dignified, con
versations more brilliant and the danc
ing more decorous than in these days of
the racquet, tempete and the german.
Miss Von Kaptf refused many suitors,
and married John Rankhead Magruder,
then a young officer of the army, distin
guished" for ~
His Sfanly neaaty,
j ftvctoating manners and fine vofoe.
During his subsequent career a* colofiel
of artillery in the United States army
and major-general in the Confederate
army, Mrs. Magruder resided on the
Continent, chiefly in Italy, where she
still remains.
The Misnen Ponell were three sisters,
of more or l«ts beauty, who married re
spectively Samuel W. Smith, son of
(tenenU Smith, who commanded the
famous old Maryland Line during the
Revolutionary war; Judge Edward D.
Kemp, for many years Chief Judge of
the Orphans' Court of Baltimore city,
and Gustav W. Lurman, a wealthy and
rather aristocratic (German merchant,
who made a large fortune in Baltimore.
Miss Mary Karrick was considered
one of the moat beautiful womeu of her
day. She was a brunette, with dark
hair and eyes and brilliant complexion,
of petite tMt graceful figure. She mar
ried Elisha liiggs, who was at that time
the partner of George Peabody, in Bal
timore. She was the mother of Elisha
Riggm Jr.. for many years one of the
wealthiest American residouta of Paris,
and, also, of the late George W, Rigga,
I the heai of the well-known Washing
ton hanking house* of Rigg* & Coi
Louis Pascault, a French eiwegre,
who settled in Baltimore about the lw
ginniug ftf this century, had tfcree
i daughters possessing great persona!1 »t

Another beauty at this time was fsa
l>ella HaU, who was a representative of
oue of the oldest Baltimore families.
Some-of l»ef contemporaries, who are
stillliving, speak enthusiastically of her
lovely face, imperial tigure and Diana
like graco-of movement. Her cousin,
Mr. Alexander L. I <oriuan? was devoted
to her for raany years, and it was sup
posed they were enj^ige-l, init both died
unmarried. About forty years ago a
perfect galaxy of beautiful women
adorned Baltimore society. The most
attractive aad fascir.atiug of these was,
probably, Miss Ellen Swan-, who mar
ried Philip Barton 1 iey, son of Francis
Scott Key. author of the "Star Span
gled Banner.". Philip Iftwrton Key's
social and professional ctureer in Balti

Sarah Gilnaor was another famous
beanty. She was a daughter of Wm.
Gilmor, who resided* in Monument
Square, immediately in tbe _ neighbor
hood of Barnum's Hotel. While yet a
school girl, she attractod the attention
of young Barnum, sou of the hotel
keeper.; a run-away marriage took
place, soon followed by a separation.
Miss Charlottes iiobiusou, in her golden
prime, was oue-of the greatest belles
Baltimore ever hail. She was the
daughter of Alexander Robinson, and
granddaughter of the celebrated pain
ter, Charles Wilson Peale. After re
fusing a hundred offers, Miss Robinson
married Judge Edntuud Pendleton, of
Virginia. _

Their home ou Charles street was a
centre of social life at the time of
which we are now speaking—betwean
1S40 and 'Hfi. The most beautiful of the
irrouo, Henrietta, married Dr. William
T. Wilson, a gentleman of fortune,
who possessed much taste In art; Vir
ginia married Herman Vou Kapff, a
German by birth, but long a resident
of Baltimore; Ellen, who was "divinely
tall and most divinely fair" become the
second wife of Theodore JWentmore, of
New York; Maria married Mr. Thomas
J. Wilson, and Amelia the Reverend
L. Von Bakkelan, who enjoyed atjone
time an income of $10,000 a year from
St. Timothy's Hall, a prominent educa
tional establishment near Baltimore;
Margaret, the eldest of these fair sisters,
died unmarried. Mrs. Van liakkelan
the youngest, is the only one now liv.
No description of
Baltimore Renntyr
would be complete without mentioning
Misn Mary Grafton Delauey, of whom
George uvnooe. an excellent judge of
female beauty, said that he had never
beheld a countenance so exouisitelv
lovely. "The pose of the small head,
the sweep of the neck, resembled the
miniatures of Grisi in her youth, but
the lines were more refined—a face of
which you neTer realised the perfect
glory until the pink-coral tint flashed
faintly through the clear, pale cheeks,
while the lift of the loug,,trailing lashes
revealed the magnificent eyes, lighting
up surely to the full of their stormy
splendor." No photographer has suc
ceeded in reproducing her Madonna
like features, but all who have seen (
her unite in the praises of her enchant
ing beauty.

many years the president of the Farm

We saw Joe Thurmond yesterday and i
he t»W us all about his escape from the |
Clarke county Court K»uho, his llight ■
to Caaadu aud • his return when par
doned by Governor Colquitt. It is a
thrilling chapter. Said Thurmond:
"I had no idea of attempting an escape
whet-1 was carried from tlie jail to the
court house, but had determined to die
sooner than.go to the pi niteniiary. Hut
while sitting in my chair in Judge
Jackswn's ortlce a sudden desiro sel/.ed
me tc make the attempt and w ithout
stopping to consider foi a moment or
count the probable cost I" made a bolt
for the window, but some -one caught
my feat just as I waa. about passing
through that caused me to fall on my
head and receive a fearful shock. I
then rushed for my home, expecting
each 'nstant to be shot down in my
track), but I iutended tod re rather than
surrender. One of Browning'-* bullets
grazed iny leg and passing through the
saddla-fikirt and blanket entering the
side of the uag I was riding. After
getting beyond range of the balls I
headed toward Brooklyn; but when
about two miles out of • town the horse
began to give way under me, when I
roue out in a pine thk ket to see what
was the matter. Cpon removing the
saddle I discovered the wound, anil 1
knew that the beast could aot carry me
further. I turned it loose and started i
for home on foot, aud by a circuitous !
route had to travel fourteen miles before
{retting there. Hut my leaving my
horse behind saved me from capture, as
the officers thought I was still hid out
in the ticket and ao did not telegraph*
I only remained home an hour—jbid
long enough to get some money, bid n»y
family good-bye and started for Liw
renceville, thirty miles distant.
Taking my little brothei in the b'tggy
we made the trip in ju»t three hours,
but It nearly killed thehorse I wasdriv.
ing. I traveled at night, passing through
Jug Tavern, and met several man on
the road that I knew, but as I had my
hat slouched over my face they did not
recognize me, not even my uncle, whose
house 1 passed. Just as I broke into
Lawrenceville the train was steamed up
ready to leave and I got. aboard. Had
I been ten minutes later it would have
left Die. I met with another streak of
good luek wheal got to Suwannee. the
junction with the Air Line. I got from
aboard as soon a.-> the cars stopped and
stepping into a dark corner remained
thereuntil the regular train cave along,
which was just ten minutes. I boarded
the smoking car, that was fortunately
"When I got to Atlanta I did not wait
for the train to stop befcre-I jumped ofl
and secreted myself near the Chatta
nooga train, that the conduct** told me
would leave in ten minucee. I feared &
telegram had been sent ahead and was
aftraid to risk even buying a ticket, pr»
ferring to pay my fare to the-conductor
I had bo wav to disguise myself, us I
was cleanly shaved and had to take the
chanoes. Just as the Western and At
lantic moved oft I jumped aboard and
noon left Atlanta behind me. Bat I
dreaded every stopping place, expecting
to meet a telegram. When Chatta

Celt pretty safe, but pushed ou to. mj
