people" ot Lancaster: S
There are subject which, to touch upon
with point and candor would give pain and
offense, and which need touching upon in
the exact proportion that such pain and of
fense would be given. Our only wish, in
speaking of 'our young . people" is to ex
cite a profitable course ef thought, and to do
good. So far ss our observation extends,
the young men of our acquaintance do hot,
at all appreciate the spirit of the age in which
they live, or the duties which are soon to
devolve upon them. We meet them in the
street, we see them at church, we talk with
them across the counter, we come in contact
with them in occasional conversation, and
the principal impression, left opon us is a
nicely fitting coat, a clean pair of boots, ea
sy manners and a contented frsme of mind.
We go into their rooms, and find a novel
which they declare to .be very good or very
stupid. ' The Bible is out of light, and the
history and the dook oi travel are nor. upon
their tables. If we SPk of politics, they
"don't care anything about politics, and are
not posted up;" if of religion, tney thin u
is pretty much as a man thinks;" if of any
greet question agitatiug the world abroad,
they "don't protend to keep track of foreign
affairs," : A for thoroughly digested and
well Informed view of the literature of their
own language, mey now none, . iiononi
they nave in plenty opinions with them
are scarce. ,' ',
" This condition of things grow out of a
mistaken idea of life and its true ends.' - Bu
siness is the one subject . and pursuit that
rises aboyfteyery thing, else. On this, they
are well informed. Here, they are pertecliy
at home, und it Is this establishment in their
minds- of what was intended, to be seconda

which prostitutes tneir energies, ana owaris

character, which makes a man a man,
which lifts him above the accidents of for

view, how many of .our young men are men
or are growing to-be meni. we leave it
(or them to answer. . And we leave it also
for them to "answer how, In the time to
come, when they take the places of their

SDonsibillties of society. What kind ottone

We are aware that there are discourage
ments In the way; We are met with the
Statements that there is no use in trying to
pel into eood society unless you have mon
ey, : We answer that society that measures
its members by mmey is not good society,
and is not worth getting into, and would be
a curse to you if you were to get into it.
Makeyour own society good and then you
will have good society.. What to you are
those poor specimens of humanity who est!

your purse! They do not call for a thought

Trial or Kisae. The Clotino Scene.
The famous forgery case,which has so large
ly engrossed , public attention for the last
two weeks, has finally closed. The trial of
Lebanon, it is generally admitted,- has been
ably ,nd impartially conducted. Judge
Rogers has received deserved commenda
tion for the ability, moderation and strong

proved himself a competent, a learned and
n Impartial Juduei The jury was compos
ed of sound and sterling men, unprejudiced
their opinions, and determined to per
form what to them was a sad and solemn
uty. The case has been energetically and
bly conducted, both by the Counsel for the
State and the defence. No effort nor hon
orable means have been spared to give Wil
liam Kissane a fair and impartial trial, and
we believe, as far as nature can be infalli
ble, he has received what were bis just de
serts. The verdict was returned by the jurors af
ter a retirement of three ' hours, and its an
nouncement was most solemn and effective.
The general impression in and about. Le
banon was that Kissane would eithor be ac
quitted or . that the jury would disagree.
Their decision of "Guilty", Caused general
surprise, accompanied by a saddening influ
ence, as a large share ot sympathy had been
awakened in behalf of the unfortunate man,
who, whatever his sins, has suffered greatly
and whose position oan not but be calculated
to arouse puy even in the sternest bosoms,
Kissane' late standing in society, his pre

fall from high position Into dishonor and

species of romance and mystery ,and strange
curiosity, that have been 'fell throughout
the land. . .
We know not when wo have witnessed a
more singularly impressive and mournful
scene than that which attended the rendition
of the verdict
The Court room was dimly, lighted, the
night without was dark and stormy, as if in
unison with the fate of the prisoner, when
he was brought in to hear the decision of
those twelve men upon whom his future des
tiny bung, and with whom his every -worldly
exoectaliou rested.
Kissane stood full of hope, as he stood up
before those jurymen, and gazed fixedly at
them, as if he would read their sentence ere
it was uttered. The awful word "guilty"
fell upon his ear, as much as upon his soull
which seemed to shrivel before that fcarfu,
sound. Every ray of hope died in his coun
tenance he started and gazed wildly around
as if to seek for protection,. and sank over

and Impending fate which awaited him) and
exclaiming in a trembling and appalling
tone: "That ts wrong, Judoe! As Heaven is

aeonv of tear.
Eaoh spectator in that Court room felt a
thrill of woe, in that painful and awful scone,
dead ss the hone of the- unfortunate who
wept, weeping like a child before them. - 1
Justice, perhaps, .had been done; but jus
tice is stern -and terrible; it softens not its
rigor - though human nature is its victim.

dreadful, when meok-eyed Mercy folds thee
not beneath her snowy wings! -1 '.
Thatscene will be long burned upon our
memory.. Near. Kissane sat his young broth

beart would break helpless then he seem

he" had looked up as to a father, plunged in

tbis remarkable woman:
This lady wss the heroine of that in
tensely interesting romance in real life,
which was developed In the celebrated law
suit of Mrs. Gaines.1 ' ' - - - . -
Her maidtn name was Zulime Carriere.
She wa born in th old French colonv of
Biloxi. Her parenis were emigrants fom
the land of poetry and romance the favor-
te home of the troubadours Provence
The blood of tbe Gipsy race, which in tbe
early day of Louisiana, settled aloug our
sea coast, end whose lovely d-iughters were
the special object ol the admiration and
love of the gallant French cavaliers who es
tablished tbe first colonies, mingled with
that of the puetis Provencal. From such
stock, it i not remarkable that Zulime
Carriers should have derived extraordinary
personal beauty.. The charms of herself
and her three sisters, were the universal
themes of admiration in the colony of Loui
siana. The warm and genial climate, and
luxurious atmosphere of the sea-snore, rip
ened these charms into full maturity at a
very early age. Zulime had hardly emerg
ed into her teens, before her hand was
sought by numerous suitors. Tbe success
ful aspirant gained his "point as Claude
Melnotte in Bulwer's piny did by holding
an imaginary coronet, or other insignia of
nobility, before the eyes of a beautiful, but
unsuspecting girl of thirteen. She was
caught by the glittering bait. Tbe French
nobleman soon dwindled into a Confection
er, and what wss worse, a married man, who
had never been divorced. Jle was arrested
and tried by an ecclesiastical Court in this
city, for bigamy was convicted, and sen
tenced to be punished, but afterwards escap
ed, and was no more heard of. Thus ended
Zulime's relation with Jerome De Grange.
Pending tins proceeding, and after the
discovery of De Grange's previons marriage,
there grew up an int.macy between Zulime
and Daniel Clarke, then leading man in
this Colony of very popular character and
agreeable manners. Clarke was just the
gallant, chivalrous man,, to espouse the
cause of an unprotected and wronged wo
man. ;" " , . J ' ' '
It is said but as from this point starts
the protracted litigation' which has recently
engaged so much of tbe time and attention
of our Courts we must be understood as
giving the version related by the deceased
lady and her friends, that Clarke, having
met Zulime in Philadelphia, and satisfied
himself as to the existance of De Grange's
bigamy, and the consequent nullity of his
marriage with Miss Carherc, promptly offer
ed her his hand and heart, but suggested
the prudence of keeping 'their marriage a
s -cret.untif they Could romplcte the proof of
De Grange a crime, rhey were married.
Of this marriage, but one witness was liv
ing when the suit was brought by-Mrs.
Gaines, and that was a sister of Zulime.
But there were corroborating circumstance
upon which the proof of the reality of such a
connection was rested. After her marriagu
to Clarke, in 1802, Zulime returned to New
Orleans, to take further legal proceedings
to invalidate, or rather, authenticate, the
illegality of the marriage with De Grange.
A suit was brought for this purpose in the
Civil Court of the Territory, and a judge
ment was obtiiined against De Grange. In
the meantime, Clarke had advanced in years
and honor. The gallant youth of 1803
had become the ambitious politician and
millionaire. ' - :.. -
As the popular man of a powerful party,
he was sent a delegate of the Terriuty to
Congress. Hore he soon -forgot the , poor
Creole girl, and began to meditate a more
brilliant marriage connection. -Tne aoject
of this aspiration was the lovely Miss Ca
ton, of - Maryland, a, grand-daughter of
Charles Carroll: of Carlton, who alter
wards became the Marchioness pf Welles-
ley . She was a great be le and Clark e
fine manners, -distinguished position, and
great wealth, rendered him quite a desira-
ble match lor so brilliant ana accompnsn
ed a beauty. They were engaged;, but
some stories of his enemies caused a sudden
termination of their relations. v On hearing
ofhis courtship of Miss Cston, the unfor
tunate Zulnne again went to Philadelphia
to procure proofs of hbr marriage with
Clark. But- alasl Clark, it was alleged.
under the influence of a reckless ambition,
had made wav" with those proofs and poor
Zulime strain found herself the victim of
man's treachery. ' In a feeling of desertion
and helplessness, alone among strangers,
whose language and habits were foreign to
her, she accepted the hand of Dr. Gardelte,
who generously and magnanimously, rely
ing on her truth and sincerity, united ' bis -fate
and fortune with here. From that pe
riod her life flowed smoothly on in the dis
charge of her duties as a wife and moth
er. - ' " ' -.-' ' ' - "
Shortly after herjmarriage with Gardette
Clark had suffered his severe rebuff from
the lovely Miss Cston. In a spirit of true
penitence, he hurried to Philadelphia, saw
Zulime; and declared his determination to
proclaim their marriage. But it was too
lute. She informed him that' she was Mrs.
Gardelte. Clark was deeply distressed at
this, and exhibited a sincere penitence.
He sought to atone for his desertion of the
motherly kindness to the daughter, who
was born in J808, of this secret ; marriage.
This. was My ra Clark. She. was placed in
charge of an intimate friend of Clark, Col.
Davis, who raised and educated her as his
own daughter. It was not until she had
reached maturity, that My ra discovered the
secret of her history i Since then, a Mr.
Whitney and as Mrs.' Gaines, she has pros
ecuted her claim to the propriety of Dsn
iel Clark as his lawful beir, with a seal.
earnestness and energy, which have rarely
been equalled In the annals of litigation.
The difficulty , hss . been to establish the
the marriaire between Zulime and Daniel
Clark." Certainly, a mystery has long
hong over this rase, which only the dead
could rise from their graves and satisfactor

so many reverses and misfortunes,, returned
