. ( - ? . ' ? % 1 ?'
'Tnr. Corricre^Ieicantilc, of Genoa, relates
tlie following curious mode oftaking revenge oil
an unfiiithful wife: A wealthy-inhabitant of the
Vico dei Vecchlgtti (a street in Genoa,) had ob
tained unequivocal proof <Jf his wife's bnd con
duct. Without getting into a passion or pro
ceeding to violence, as most people would do in
such a case, ho simply turned his wife out of
doors with her paramour,, and then sent for a
carpenter, whom he directed to set up a cata
falque, such .iflS -is 'used in, Rqpiqn Catholic
churches for the funeral service. 'This done, ho
sent invitations to all'his friends for the follow
ing evening, when they, found the room lit up
iqith. burning ; tapers. Their host made them
?stand round' the catafalquo and requested them
to chant the service for the dead, he himself
acting as conductor, thus 1 intimating that his
wife was thenceforward dead to him. lie then
conducted them to a well provided table, where ?
he entertained them until a late hour.
An Italian* IIkuoujk.?The following is from
an article on "Women Artists," in the lFe?i
mihsler Review : -
Onorato Rudiano weilded at once the pointer's
pencil and the warrior's sword. She is quite a
personage of romance, a nd we are surprised that
she hns naver figured in novel or poetry. In
her 2ad year, she had already J attained : so
great a reputation tor artistic skill, that Ga
brino Fondolo, tyrant of Cremona, committed to
her care the adornment of his palace. Onorata
would have willing]}' declined this equivocal
honor, but the Marquis would listen to no refu
sal ; and to excite the anger of a man at once so
vindictive and unscrupulous, was too fearful
a risk. Onorata was destined to labur long In
the service ef Fondolo. One day, while occupi
ed in painting the walls of one of the ap'arments,
a courtier, notorious for his dissipated habits,
entered the room and offered some unjustifiable
liberties. The young artist indignantly repulsed
him, and on his returning to the charge, she
seized a dagger she wore concealed in her bod
dicc, and slabbed him to the heart. Then rush
ing from the palace, disguised herself in man's
attire, and fled to the mountains, declaring that
she would rather perish in exile and a wanderer,
butpureand untainted, than enjoy splendor and
dishonor at home. The marquis was furious;
he sent soldiers in every direction in pursuit,
with orders to bring her back, alivo or dead ;
but unable to discover the place of her re'reat,
ind finding no one capable of completing her
labors, he promised full and entire pardon on
condition of her instant return. Onorata, bow
ever, effected her escape from his dominions.?
Retaining hei disguise, she obtained admittance
into one of tho companies of Condottieri then
infesting Italy, and, bv hoi= W;??o-?-J-oorrra,;ll'\
soon rose to the post pf captain. Her warlike
spirit delighted in the independence and excite
ment of her new career ; she refused to abandon
it, and continued to fight and paint alternately
for thirty years. In 1472, her native town,
Castelione, was beseiged by the Venitians. On?
Diata, at the head of her company, flew to its
relief; she forced the enemy to raise the scige,
but was mortally wounded in tho conflict,. and
died a few days later.
A MeanMili.ionaike.?Stephen Girardbegan
his remarkable trading career with one object,
which he steadily kept in view all his long life
?the making of money for the power it confer
red. lie was content at starting with the small
profits of a retail trader, willing to labor in any
capacity to make these profits secure. He prac
tised the most rigid personal economy; he re
sisted all the allurements of pleasure; he exact
ed the last farthing that was due to liitn; and ho
paid the last farthing that he owed. He took
every advantage which the law allowed him in
resisting.a claim; he used men just so far as tlicy
accomplished his purpose; he paid his servants
no more than tho market price; when:a faithful
cashier died be exhibited the utmost indifference,
making no pro vision for his family, and'u ttering
no sentiment of regret for his loss. He would
higgle for n penny with a huckster in the streets;
he would deny the watchman at his bank the ?
customary Christmas present of a great coat.
To add to his singular and deficient character
he was deaf in one ear, could only speak broken
English, never conversed upon anything but
business, and wore the-snme old coat, cut in the
French style, for five years together. An old
rickety chair, remarkable for its age, and mark
ed with the initials "G. S." drawn by a faded
horse, was used when he rode about the city.
He had no sense of hospitality; no friend to
share his house or his table. He was deferen
tial in appearance to rank and family. Violent
and passionate; only to one man?an old and
faithful clerk named Robergot. Ilis theological
opinions were heterodox in the extreme, and he
loved to name his splendid vessels after Voltaire
and Rousseau. Do was devoted to the improve
ment of his adopted city and country;, he was a
determined follower of ostentations charity.?
No man ever applied to him for a large public
grant in vain, while the starving beggar was in
variably sent from his gate. He steadily rose
every morning before the lark, ar.d unceasing
labor was the daily worship of his life.?JJicieiia'
