" Sho is going to leave Mr. Dar row's this morning because the family is so large and the work so heavy. Hue can't find fault with our establishment, I guess.

The Thretf Maters of tbAft'SfltHh" One Hundred Suitors Hejfected,- Mirm OTttndy tn the Philadelphia Times. Hiuce there has been1 so much discussion in print about the will Of the late Mrs. Dorsey,-of Missis sippi,of making so large a bequest to Jefferson Davis, i think your readers may bw interested to beat more of the donor's family alrd their eccentricities. I hafre known and now know several members of this very tuleuted family, whose talents iu two er three instaaces have been .uisdirected by a"n erratic tendof.y( which was skillfully por trayed by one of the family, Mrs. Wurflehl, in the Well-known' novel, " The Household of Bouverie." I was assmed by one of the family not long after the novel appeared that, strange as its characters seem, the story was really founded 011 a family history, and that Mrs. War field's ifat her. the grandfather of the recently deceased Sirs.- Dorsey, was the eccentric old tnau of the Story. It is easy to see how thrnly " Btaritpif," thn name of the- fami ly residence Is disgnisert in " Bottverie. There were three Misses Percy who were many years gff greatly admired bells is Mis sissippi, and who also had literary tastes. They published theff poe try joiutly as the production of the "Three tiisters vt tbe South,'' as nearly as 1 can remembet the word ing of the titlo as repeated to me, for I rtfrtef saw oiieof tbe volumes. One sinter became first Mrs. Ellis (the ir.otf.ef of Mrs. Dorsey and of Mr.: Percy EMis of Brooklyn, And Mrs. Ince I'eckhnoi,- of Louisiana,) and snlrseqtieRtly married General Charles Dahlgren,- who' Was tha brothef oi the late Bear Admiral Dahlgren. he alsc had other children than those named. An other sister became Mrs. Warfield, to whose Hovel I have alluded. She died two or three years ago at her comity place near Louisville, Ky; The fhifct Bfsfcf (hough whether the youngest or not I cannot aay was so fullypersuaded of her pow ers ot conquest as to- declare she would never marry until she had ref tsed one hundred ofte.fs and t have been assured sho kept her worn. Mre declined tuat number bnt. must have bad i t least a senti ment iu favor of No. 100, for I have been informed tnat she always kept his portrait batfging over her bed e ven alter marriage to No. 101, w hich' must hare itfen a comfort to the latter. I think Ko. 100 died ' young, aud before Miss Percy had her romantic meeting with her fate. That rencontre ocoured after tbe fashion so favored in novels. The fair piercer of one hundred hearts rode forth on her spirited steed alone one day from her fath er's plantation, uear Jackson, Miss. Ber horse became unmana geable when she was urging him to cross tt bay oil, and forthwith a hero in the shape of a "solitary horseman" appeared to rescue the maiden, and rodo beside her after tbe horse again became obedient to the mistress. Tbe stranger gave a good account of himself, and being a handsome man made such good use of bis time that tbe com .snip vegan oeiore i ney reacn ed her father's bou. He was in vited to be a gusst there, and hon orably confessed that he was too poor to veuturo to ask Miss Percy to wed bim. But she said she had euough tor both, aud her father gave them his blessing aud a plan tation near tireeuville, Miss., where they resided after Miss Percy wed ded Major Lee, for that was the name of tbe one hundred aud first who sought ber hand. I used to know two of the children of this marriage. One, Kate, married about tbe time the war broke out, South Carolinian, who became a - colonel ot a cavalry regiment of the Confederacy. His wife, as spirited an eqnestrienue as her mother, nsed to ride besido ber husband when his regiment was marching. Her mother, Mrs. Lee, died long before the war. I attend ed, as a school girl in Louisville, the 6ecoud wedding ot Maior Je, who was then married to Miss Emma Knight, a well known belle of that city. Both are now dead, but left children. Mis.
