" No, I don't care so much for staying in Germany, now," said my friend LyndsAy Koundell to me the other day, as we sat after dinner, we two alone, in the window a little hotel overlooking the Thames. had not met for some years, and now havincr chanced to meet in London, he on returning from the Italian port where he been British Consul, and I havincr iust come back from the United States, we cel ebrated our reunion by a quiet dinner to gether, w hen we used to meet more often were a little younger, : we were botk passionate lovers of ' German literature, music, philosophy, scenery and wines. Naturally, then, we had been talkinerof Germany. "No,'' he repeated, "I don't care so much about staying in Germany any more. always hurry through. I know all about United Germany, and its greatness, and its victories, and that sort of thing, and it's splendid, of course. I am glad of it, you know: but it's little like a fellow who is that some girl he loved when be was .young 'had grown a-graniT lndy and mar ried an earl. ...Delighted, of coarse, and all that; but she isn't our Lizette any more, I spent a night or two in Berlin lately, and went to an evening party had to. It was given by a friend, a moles professor. I you there was as much show and sham, much jewelry and rustling silks, and shoulders, and footmen, .and airs and tomfoolery, as if it were in Paris under the empire." ' " 1 fear 1 fear that years are telling on KoundelL lou are becoming an old logy." 1 suppose so. Hut these people used be so -simple, so sweet, and homely, when I used to visit Berlin first. Tell you what, I used to like the little courts of the princess. It's a shame, I suppose, but used to like them. Say what you will, little courts had a flavor of antique chivalry and old romance about them." "iad theyf 1 confess 1 never could see I thought them ridiculous little hum bugs." 'Well, and you are right enough, from point of view taken by the journalist the practical politician. But why you take a look at them from the romancist's stand point?" " Because I can't imagine any romance clinging around such formal, dry, - and dusty pedantries, i Did you ever, hear of romance of the Master of the Ceremo nies? Can yon imagine Gold Stick in Waiting the hero of a thrilling love story f Koundell only sent a column of smoke his head into the blue ether, and was silent. After a silence of a moment or two said : " Did you see in the papers the death of the Grand Duchess of Liebesheim V ' No, I didn't observe. The old Grand Duchess? " " Oh, no, the younu one the wife of the Grand Duke 1 mean the fellow who was Grand Duke until Bismarck sponged him the slate." " 1 didn't see. Where did she die?" "In Florence. She was verr voune to die?" " Young to die yea. But she was not exactly a chicken, you know. Let me see. When was it we saw her at Liebesheim her marriage festivals? In '52, wasn't it? wen, you see, twenty years " Yes. yes. of course: but I always think her a young. How beautiful she looked ! " Slio did. She seemed a charming woman, 1 only saw her twice the day her husband brought her out into the balcony to bow to the crowd, and once at court bull, for which some good natured functionary 1 forget who it was kindly me a ticket." "She is dead so goon," my friend re marked, thoughtfully. 1 did not quite understand his emotion. was sorry the Grand Duchess should be dead, if uhe particularly wished to live; but must be a great devotee of royalty to feel profound grief at the death of a princess whom he saw twice, in a crowd, and at a distauce, twenty years ago. It surprised to find my friend so deeply concerned the extinction of any royalty, seeing of a I be est the the of as was of one of she of that girls day the few it I that he used to be nf the rather -stern re publican, school. . .. To be sure, since be and I were in Germany, he had received a Lilship from the Government of hei consul Maiestr Oueen Victoria. ..... . '.' Tliev said her husband was a worthless scamp, saidri, fotfhe want of anything else or better to say. "They did; 1 believe it w only too true, replied Koundell, rather gloomily. Siie didn't care about him, i sup Ooe'f I asked. " No. How could she? He was a brute and the marriage was a mere political ar rangement." i suppose these royal or stmi-royal marriages always are." He didn't answer-directly. But he sent another pillar of smoke, and murmured, JJead!-so young and so beautiful. -. You talk quite sentimental about the Grand Duchess. Did you ever know her?" " i never saw her, as you have said, for twenty years. "Then why are you so greatly concerned about her death.' Well, you see, her memory belongs to ine old time, when we were young, and J can- see her face before me, sad and beauti ful. I know that she was very unhappy. I renum er hearing a story I don't know whether it s won n telling, though, "By all means. Go ahead. I shall be delighted to hear it." 1 said this because iiounuell spoke in that half-eager and half-apologetic tone which shows that a man wishes to tell you something, but is afraid you will not care to listen to it. " It isn't much. There was a fellow I knew at the time we were in Liebet-heim an English fellow. I don't think yoa knew him. He was studying something or other tuere.and he liked to read in the mornings. He used to get up with the lark and stroll out into the park., l ou remember the park pretty, wasn't it? And he found out a quiet place where hardly any people ever went even in tne day, anu ne used to read there. 1 remember the spot every stone and leaf of it be snowed it to me, and 1 used to lounge around there sometimes after he had gone. It was a little bit ol clearing in the thick part of the wood, and there was a little stream there. 1 used to spout Goethe's poem o the Bachlein there. ou used to spour, or me ieiiow you are telline me about.' " Oh. 1 used to-'-when he had gone, you know. Perhaps he used to spout it too; it doesn t matter, i here were a couple ot statues there, a nymph aud a faun all grown over .wren moss, .weu, sir, one lovely summer morning, wnen mis ieiiow was reading there, declaiming out loud he had a great fashion of doing that " So had you. 1 remember." "Had I really? Oh, no, I think not; any. how. he had. Well, he was declaim ine from Schiller, when suddenly he heard unmistakable laugn a very pleasant, musical laugh and looking np ne saw " A girl, ol course. "Wrone for once.- He saw two girls. " All the same. ' I knew we should get some girl or girls before long. . "Nice eirls. too, and . very, beautiful quietly dressed; citizen's daughters that sort of a Ihinar.

'Ihey didn t He was sorry. . iiut they came the morning loiiow- ing." - "Oh, coniouna ill that au comes to ine same thing. They came,-anyhow." They did. Acquaintance grew anu grew.

"Like a good fellow let me go on my own way. - Or you tell me the story, u you kr.ovr all about it. "Well. I almost think I could.

Can t be anythiHgTWSft Jid marry, or didn t marry, there s the oniy difference. . Koundell laughed rather a gloomy sort a laugh, "in this case it was she didn't marry," he said; " but we may as well go regularly through with the story, as we have begun it. It's not quite so common place as you suppose. Well, these girls came very regularly in the mornings, and sometimes they even arranged to meet the fellow of evenings very rarely though. Once there was sort of a saturnalian mas querade in the open air in the gardens of oia bcnioss, and the girls gave tne fellow a hint that they were to be there and how they were to be dressed, and he found her out. . She was to be dressed like Swiss peasant girl bodice and sleeves, short skirts, you know." " Yes silver spoon in the hair, liberal display of ankles.. Go on." lily friend looked grim at my levity, and felt bound to- excuse myself by saying that as I didn't personally know the fellow who was the hero of this romance, I might forgiven if I spoke too lightly of his idol s ankles. ..... .. ... " Koundell went on : " It was the queer sort of thing, the meeting of these three the three alwavs, until just the end. There really wasn't any love making in particular, although the fellow grew, at to be madly in love with the girl villi eyes. the called 1 herself Dorothea; other wag Meta. They were cousins, they said,, daughters of worthy trades people, who.sunnlied thines to the Schloss, They used to talk about books.

And, do yoa know, 1 think studious and poetical young fellows that age- are wonderfully pure. This fellow wasn't any better than the rest of us, by Jove, his love for her was- as pure the love ol a woman." ) - T " Did she lall in love with him ? " : .'. . . "Well, came 'out in this way. .He rather a good-looking fellow then, though perhaps you wouldn't think 90 now fellows change so-rthat lie was full poetry and passion" and that sort of stuff, just at the age when a man would be delighted to give. his life for a woman,. Well, sir, one morning she had little flower in her hand, she held it in an uncer tain way, as if she were going to offer it to him.' He extended his hand; the flower dropped; he reached down for it; "she reached for it; their hands just touched moment by Jovel as short as the puff this smoke; and when she looked up her was all crimson; and then she turned away; and she knew as well as Heaven does the fellow was- in love with her, and knew that she loved him." Koundell paused in .his story. The evening was deepening down, the skies were purpling, and the Thames was as suming a sad and melancholy hue. The faint ripple of the water was heard more clearly. My friend looked out of the win dow, and seemed to enjoy the quiet beauty the scene. ' - "Well, but the rest of the story, Koun dell?" I said. "The rest of the story; I don't know it isn't all over." - "Oh, come now; there must be a little more. Yes, a little:'" but I think it would have been better, somehow, if it had ended there.,' " Anyhow, it didn'r; so go on. ;"?" " Welt the fellow didn't see either of the next day, or the next.1 But the third they came; and Dorothea was very sweet and melancholy, and the other one, xueta, was rather distant in manner, tne fellow thought, and seemed frightened somehow. They didn't stay long; Meta seemed wild to get away; but when they were going, Dorothea gave her hand to fellow, you know, and put into it a tiny scrap of paper." "Ahl , v " Yes, a tiny scrap of paper. It had a words on it. Of course he didnt read until he was safe out of the range of everybody.

She was almost out of breath, and frightened; said she had great dilliculty in geiung away, - but she was resolved, come what would, lo see him alone for the lust time." J?'or the last time?" " These were the words, and her firm, sad face showed that she meant it. She told him that her companion had been doing a very foolish thing, and running a great risk, and that they trusted to nis uonor as an English gentleman to help them out of their fix by just keeping their 3CT.-rci, ana iorgeuing all about tiiem. She was awfully in earnest ; no affectation-, no coquetry; brave and firm; but with the naan of a tear now and then in her beauti- ful eyes. She told the fellow that she was the cousin and companion of the princess. who was to marry the young Graud Duke ol ljiebensheim. "Meta?" "iUeta, she told me. was the future Grand Duchess. She was brought to Liebesheim to marry the Grand Dpke. She was the daughter of a mediatized prince, and put under the care of his hard and formal old mother. Of course -Dorothea told the fellow that the priueess could not love her future husband. How could she? Jivcry one knew that he was a selfish young cub. Dorotheas eyes filled with tears at the miserable fat of her frfend. I may. tell you,' she said to the fellow. ' that she loves one she always will remem ber, and can never see again.' " But how about yourself? Ves, I am afraid that concerned the fellow a great deal more than the troubles of the Graud . Duchess that was to be. Dorothea," said said the fellow, you know, ' this must not affect us: I love you and ail that sort of thing. He would have talked at her like a madman, and he caught her hand and kissed it, and begged her to be his wife, while the poor devil God help him, had a very small allowance to live on, and was good ior nothing, so far as money waxing goes, ana ne was only two ana twenty years old; but she stood there firm and patient and snffering. Oh, by Jove! I know she was; it was her eyes, tor for the fellow told me so. She said, 'My friend, we must not see each other any more ever again. We must part. You will not ask me why; but we must part.' Then she told the fellow that the young princess and herself had taken a freak of going out for morning walks dressed like cify girls, and they meant no harm; and that one day they heard the fellow declaim ing, and then they got into talk with him, and they rather liked the fellow, and so on, you know. Now the princess' marriage, and there must be no more cakes and ale ! But you will not be sorry to learn,' said Dorothea, 'that vour friendship and our pleasant talks sometimes gladdened the poor princess, and that she will always remember you as a friend." " " But what had ail this to do with hep- self?" I asked, a little impatiently. " That was just what the fellow put to her; but she said her fate was bound up with that of the princess, and she, too, hinted of some confounded marriaga en gagement. Oh, he talked, did the fellow, I can tell you. His eloquence fairly as tonished himself, iiut it was all to no purpose. She firmly declared that they must never meet any more. Then he began to accuse her of having played with his love; but she looked at hun with such a grieved and imploring gaze that he soon dropped that game. He begged her to even give him the comfort of telling him that she loved him, that if things had. been different, and all that. She only said, My friend, some day you and I will ooth be glad that 1 speak no foolish, words now. You will -look back on my! memory with. all the better feeling.'.

There was a ring on her finger that almost came loose iu his hand. He" thought oi pulling it off and keeping it as a relic; but he didn't. He pressed it on her slender, little darling of a finger again, and in half moment she was gone, and the fellow was alone." Poor fellow; what did he do? " Do? He moaned about the wood for an hour or two, with his hands in his pock ets, thinking of nothing, in an odd, dazed sort of a way. At last he went home to his lodgings, and I think he wished that he he were a woman for once." Why that?" , - . : ; Don't you see? Because if he were, a woman he could have a good cry snd ease his mind a little, iiut he could oniy smoke, and when the fellows he knew mado jokes, he had to try and make jokes too.

"Dorothea?" - Dorothea nerseit. itoundcll rose up from his seat in the window, and strode across the room, looked or affected to look at the clock over the chimney piece, re turned to th table, stood their a moment, in silence, then poured himself a glass of .claret and drank it.

Xne started from Boston on Jul, 10th aniJ for three days she made good heaUvav without experiencing any dilliculties. Tie animals on board were packed together in anncios ed pen, with sufficient room to move anout and between the pen and the poop w4 stored the bales of hay and straw, and water barrels. On the third day, when the vessel was under full sail, one of the sailors, in passine the place where the hay was stor ed, dropped a spark from his pipe. " It ig nited the hay, but as be thought the nre was at once extinguished, and as he had been violating the rules he did not mention the circumstance for fear of punishment. Unfortunately the fire had not been entire ly extinguished but smoldered during the afternoon and till the following night, when the mate gave the alarm that the vessel was on fire. The watch was set and every pre caution taken, while most vigorous efforts were made to discover the source of the smoke, several bundles of smoldering hay were thrown overboard. The wind was high, and it fanned the smoking hay into flames and filled the air with sparks. The cattle on board became frantically excited, and for a time the men were almost panic stricken. The timbers of the cattle-pen were the next to catch fire, and this mad dened the mules and sheep. The mingled noise oi untying muies ana oieaiiDg sneep, the crackling oi burning timbers, and the shouting of excited men, ts they battled bravely with the flames, is described as be ing frightful in the extreme. Many of the muies broke loose and ran frantically about the deck, creating frightful confusion, and ultimately leaping into the sea. Jklany ol the sheep were roasted to death, and before the flames were got under control the vessel had sustained serious damage. A sailor named Gibbs was severely burned, aud he and another of the men are now in Bellerue Hospital. On the morning of the 15th the full extent of the damage to the vessel was discovered, and it was at once resolved to run for New York. Her subsequent adven tures illustrate the old saying that misfor tunes never come singly. When off Fire Is land, on July 20, the unfortunate bark was run into by a steamer. The bowsprit and jibboom were smashed and her bows stove in. The sailors say the steamer was crowded with people, and no attempt was made to render auy assistance to the unfortunate men on board the bark. It was with great I difficulty that she managed to reach the East River. The Mary Barrs is about three hundred tons burden. She has lost her top mast; the ropes are all burned; the canvas is useless. The yards are badly burned. A large hole has been burned in the bow. The shedding structures, between the fore and main masts, in which the animals were confined, burned almost to a cinder; her timbers are scorched, and the bowsprit is reduced to a mere stump of wood. The vessel is now undergoing repairs at Pier No. 43. The cargo was consigned to Trow & Co., of Bridgetown Barbados. N. Y. Times. N. Y. Times. A GREAT REFORMER. The investigation of Mr. Tilden's record as a great "railroad lawyer, is bringing things to light which are exceedingly dam aging to him as a reformer. He is shown to be a cunning and unscrupulous, manipula tor of schemes to rob the people, and to enrich himself and his confederates by such robbery.
