DONNELLY'S DELUSION. Reasons "Why the Sage of Nininger is on the "Wrong- Scent in His Ba conian Theory. Contemporaries of Shakspeare Who, Witn Means of Knowing, Testified to His Genuineness. Manner In Which the Donnelly Ci pher Theory Can bo Developed by Any Person. The Belief of Centuries Hudely Sha ken- Under Which King, Be zouian, >peuk, or Die. While reading: Mr. Donnelly's lately pub lished letter respecting his Baconian theory of Shakespeare. 1 asked myself, must then the cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous pal aces, the solemn temples of Shakespeare's fame, like tho baseless fabric of a vision be dissolved and leave not a wrack behind? "For three centuries this illusion has been suffered to stand and dec i<■ us. Even many of Shakespeare's contemporaries seem to have never suspected that. as a poet, ho •was only a myth or a phantom. Hen Jouson, who was only ten years younger than Shakes peare, and was II when Shakespeare died, wrote; "Soul of tho ago! The applause! delightl the wonder of tho stage! My Shakespeare, rise! •-■•'■• He was not of an age. but for all time- Sweet swan of Avon!" His immortal contemporary. Spencer. in his poem, "The lean or the Muses," in 1590, says: '•And he, the man whom nature self had made To mock herself and truth to Imitate, With kindly counter, under mimic shade, Our Willy, ah! is dead of late; With whom all joy and jolly merriment Is also deaded and in dolor drei.it. " This was written when the public mind of England was greatly agitated by "matters of suite and religion," in which the theaters took part, but from which Shakespeare wisely abstained. Did Spencer's Will., moan Bacon! And so. on the other baud, that myth, Shakespeare or Baeon-speare, In his sonnets, returning the compliment to Speucer: "Spencer to me, who-e deep conceit is such As. passing 1 all conceit, needs no defense." John Davis, in 1611. addressed complimen tary lines "To Our Euglish Terence, Mr. Wil liam Shakespeare." Milton, who wi:s 3 years old when Shakes peare died, wrote: "What need my Shakespeare for his honored bones. The labor of an ace In piled stones? Or that his hallowed relics should be hid Under a starry-pointed pyramid? Dear son « f memory, great he r of fame — " "Or, sweet Shakespeare, fancy's child, Warbling his native wood-notes wild." Aubrey, in his "Minutes of Lives," says: "I have beard Sir William Davenant and Thomas bbadwell say that he (Shakespeare) had a most prodigious w.i." Daveuaut was born in 1805. Tbe tirst collection of Shakespeare's works, by John Hemlngsand Henry Condell in 1023, were by some mistake, dedicated to the Earls Of Pembroke and Montgomery, and not to Bacon. Greene, a contemporaneous actor and play writer, shortly before his death In 1593, says of Shakespeare, that he Is "au start crow.beautiful with our teatfaers.that * ' • supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you: and * • * is in his own conceit the only Shake-scene in a country." The Earl of Southampton, in his letter of introduction of Shakespeare to Lord F.ilis, calls Shakespeare "my especial friend." This was the same Earl of Southampton to whom, it Is supposed, the Bacon-Shakespeare sou nets were- addressed; who gave Shakespeare £1,000; who was prosecuted with Essex; and in which prosecution Bacon volunteered his services to the state against them, in order, it is Bupposed,to show his gratitndo to Essex, who had hitherto been his firmest and most devoted friend — having on one occasion pre sented Bacon an estate in laud of the yearly value of £1,800, simply because Bacon was needy, and had failed to obtain an oftiee. It is suppo c I that Bacon, in his play of "Ham let," refers to this friendship of Essex, and his own show of zealous gratitude, in doing more than anybody else to secure his Met d s conviction and execution, where he makes Poloneus say to his son Laertes: "Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried. Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel." And B icon did grapple his "adoption tried" friend with a vcu. cancel In 15'JS it was proclaimed, not timidly or questionably, that "as Plautars and Seneca are accounted the best for tragedy and com edy among the Latins, so Shakespeare, among the English, is the moat excellent iv both kinds lor the stage;" and "as the soul of Euphorbus was thought to live in Pythagoras, so the sweet, witty soul of Ovid lives In mellifluous and honey-tongued Shakespeare.'' Yes, we were all taught, from childhood up, to believe that Shakespeare wes Shakespeare; but. alas! there . came a Mi-is Bacon, aud then Mr. Donnelly, and now comes an other woman. Mrs. Pott — all assert ing and demonstrating beyond doubt or cavil that Bacon was Shakespeare, and that Shakespeare was an impostor and a par venue! Mr. Donnelly, with his mystic, skel eton key of brass, that unlocked the hidden secrets of Atlantis and threw. open the doors of the occult science of Bagnarok, has now forced ajar the sealed panel of hi mystic coffer, where has slumbered for h ree centu ries the grand truth of the Baconian theory! He has startled the world wi;h the revelation that the whole cipher is hidden in the deep meaning of those hitherto inscrutable words in "The Merry Wives of Windsor:? "Peer out" — "Shakes a chain" — "Hang-hog in Latin means bacon." It was reserved for Chatn pollion to interpret the liosetta stone — Mr. Pickwick to decipher the deep secret of the following legend: I BUST I'M PS 11 1 S. M. ARK —but it remained for Mr. Donnelly's prophet soul to discover the awful secret and caba listic significance of those portentous words just quoted from "The Merry Wives of Windsor!" 1 am a convert and Mr. Donnelly's disciple, and like one from whose eyes the scales of error have just fallen, 1 feel that I am en dowed with a new and stronger vision, that enables me, also, to discover new and other lights ttian those Mr. Donnelly has as yet re vealed to us. and which, added to Mr. Don nelly's illumination, must establish, beyond all question, that Bacon wrote the so-called Shakespeare's pis s. My discovered treasure was buried In "The Jew of Malta," act IV., p. 311. written by Marlowe, who was a contemp orarj of Shakespeare, and died In 1595. Ithar lnore, the servant of Barabas— the Jew of Malta — while they are strangling the "friar," says: "Pull amain, 'Tis neatly done, sir; here's no print at all. So, let him lean upon his staff; excellent! he stands. As If he were hoggin? for bacon." Why did Marlowe mention '•print," "staff" and "begj/inf for bacon" in connection with the "friar" if he wa-> not darkly hinting at the Baconian theory.- Who can doubt that this language is allegorical — "as headstrong as an allegory on the hanks of the Nile" — and re fers to Bacon and Shakespeare? Who ever heard of a "friar" without thinking of Friar Bacon, and therefore of Francis Bacon? And is not there a Friar Francis in Bacon's "Much Ado About Nothing?" "Yes, and why tho •word "print" if it does not mean that this "crow," Shakespeare, in other's "feathers," •was to be plucked before he could "print" his borrowed "bombast?" And what can be plainer than that the word "staff" means Shakespeare? Mr. Donnelly snys that "Peer Out" in act 4, scene 2. and "Shakes a Chain," in scene 4 of Bacon's "Merr> Wives of Windsor," means Shakespeare. • But in tha order in which these words occur, we have the ominous legend, "Peer out shakes a chain"' There fore, as the "peer" and the "Shakes" do not occur in the proper order to make Shake* . peare, and are separated by a whole inter vening scene, it is inferred that Mr. Donnelly avails himself of a poet's license to regard "shakes" as understood when "peer" occurs in the second scene.and "peer" to be mentally supplied after "shakes." in the fourth scone. It seems, however, that as Greene made ••Shake-scene-" mean Shakespeaie. Mr. Don nelly may with vastly greater certainty be convinced that "shakes a chain" can be nothing else than the name of that immortal vagabond, Shakespeare, himself; and that either, or all, or any, of these logical conclu sions, ought to De proof, as strong as holy writ, to every believer in the Baconian the ory. Returning. then, to apply these invinci ble Dounelly-ann arguments to Marlowes' cipher, •■star.' and what do we see? Why, let ."shakes" be understood, and we have Shakstaff ! Now. Webster's dictionary — when it was Webster's — that staff, in is primi tive sense, means stab, and therefore, as Dryden uses it, a weapon of attack or de fense, or, as Mr. Donnelly would say, a spear. But Marlowe was a scnolar, and probably kticw Italian, and suiflu, in Italian, means a stirrup; whence stitfflere, a stirrup-. Behold! Shakespeare, the stirrup-holder at the theater! What a polirnant thrust of stab- I luuj,' sarcasm Is here! llut now we come to the very climax, ucuio uud plnuueio of demonstration; for what more do wo want than those* siffuitleaiit words, "be«rinir tor i bacon." There the whole truth Mauds re- ' vealed. deciptiered and unlocked! There stands Shakespeare In the bonoweii jmrb of ll "friar" — Uacon of course being understood — choked off and leaving 1 no "print"— loaning upon his "staff"— his own name, which mocks him— and bopping in vain lor "bacon!"— Francis Uacon— to come to his assistuneo! Mrs. Quickly's •Hanir ho' Is Latin lor bacon" — which Mr. I Donnelly so triumphantly chows were liacou '■ i own words— fully supports Marlowe's pr«- j ti^u iii ion.

Dinner Made to Subserve Other Pur poses Than Saiislyiiii: Hunger. The Globe's Special Correspondent. Paius, Mannas, ISM.— The "Stanley Club" of which lion. Robert Mac Lane. United States minister, is president, has invited Mr. Louis Pasteur to a dinner which will be given the 14th of ApriL The club was founded in IS7S by a group of Ameri can correspondents in Pans. The god father was Stanley, the African explorer, and its tirst president. Mr. Ryan, who was foe many years correspondent of the New York Herald. After the death of Mr. Ryan in ISS3. Mr. Edward Kin?, the poet, who was the secretary, became acting president The members number about one hundred and twenty, and are princi pally Americans, although Englishmen and Frenchmen have been admitted. Another American club which existed from ISS2 to ISB4. was called the. "Pen and Pencil." A few Englishmen were members, and among the guests entertained by the club were Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Wilde. Now the "Pen and Pencil" calls Itself "The Kamblers;" but little is heard ol the gatherings, except that at the fort nightly dinner, the members toy to get "the worth of their money." Our compatriots In Parfs seem to think that a dinner club supplies a want long felt in the colony. In this Americans copy the French, rather than set them an example, for these "men dinners'' are a fashion, a habit, yes, more than a habit, a social necessity. In Paris, existence is a pneumatic machine, which wears out the blood, the brain, the heart, the nerves and the- llesh. As A co t x r i •: h a ri i u ft, the dinner has been instituted. Friends, who otherwise would not see each other except at marriages or funerals, meet at stated intervals in some Notawavt and ex change thoutcht on the subjects whk-h are Of mutual iuU-re-t. Go to the Continental. I, yon d"or, Brebant. Vetur. Yoisin. Durand's. Nottas or Lamaideley"s at "• o'clock in the evening, and you will be asked if you belong to the Maceiknie. the Cadichoruies. the Bourguijrn.ms. etc. Than dinners are divided and subdivided ad in linituin. Each table cover has its own color, each soup its tenuaiK-e. each chicken its own school, each ice its nationality, each menu its own ribbon. The oldest diner dedicated to to the Alliance dcs Arts was tlie soupe a roiirnon (onion sou])), founded 1824. The members had but one aim, lulmission to the French institute, and for tins they aided each other. Their motto was: C'est Poigßoa <HMi Eatt la force ( in onions there i<stn Dgth). Strange to relate their motto proved to bfl true, for each one had tlie honor of wearini; the academical robe, and alter tlie laol member crossed tin. threshold of the insti tute in 1545. the. dinners were tini.-hed. The '"diner Jiixio" is composed princi pally of academicians, end Alexander Du mas is the president Meissionnier, John Leinoinne and Chattel GatMCf arehis asso ciates. The, "diner Maifiiy" was once the iwMt brilliant of all ti ■■ >> organizations. There were Thiophih* Gautier. Sainte- Beuir, Paul de Saint- Victior, Tame. Ke nan, etc. and all these esprits. provided over by Qeorge Sand. The "Bibliophiles"' and "Polaufeu"' are the two dinners hon ored by remarkable women. The inthu a member Madame Edmund Adams, and the aeeund for president Madame Caluitle Mendis (Judith Ciautier). Caiolus Duran, the president of the '"Macedoine.*' extends his hand to all talents — painters, comedi ans, sculptors, architects, musicians, etc. Numerous as are the members, their quality is the best; Jules Claretie, Ed Pailliron. MIHBJUIIt. Salh-Prudhotmne. Sylvesi •'. etc. The "Maniite' is another artistic «. mer. which lias numbered among its presidents Paul Bert and Bartholdi, and entertained as guests Gen. Tchen^-ki-Tong. the celes tial Parisian, and Ferdinand de Lessens. The invitations are ALWAYS ORIGINAL DRAWINGS by two of its members. Henri Pille and M. Lalanne. When the Marniite gave a din ner to Savorgnan de Brazzu, the menu was especially artistic and represented the Contr.o explorer ollerlng a maiuiitu ( kettle i to King Makoko. The French poets have their "dinners' also; there is the '"dinner dcs timides." and that of 'Thomme gin beche"' (the man who dijjs), where turbots and ducks alternate with rhymes and son nets. At one time there existed a '•dinner"' to which it was very difficult to gain ad mission; it was eallei "Auteurs sifflis" (hissed authors). Funbert. Zola. Dandet were members. and Tourguenielf. in order to be admitted, took his oath that he had been outrageously hissed in Russia for a play of wl ich he had forgotten the name. It Is not very easy to become a member of these "dinners." Some have a limited number of members like the Academy, where the death of an academician is the only means of entrance. Others exact from the candi dates qualities so rare that the unfortunate postulants are usually blackballed. The lioulette requires a unanimous vote for the admission of a candidate. A boi'.lette (little ball) of bread is thrown in a hat and from this the dinner ta&es its name. There are as many dialects and nationali ties aniotm the French as tlierc are depart ments in Fiance, and the Parisian of each <le)iuit!iient has his especial dinner. The Auvergnats own the Soupe aux Choux. and are presided over bj Melehissedec of the opera and t lie artist Franc Laini. Jules Simon and (Jot ot the ("omedie Francai^e fraternize with other Normans at the l'lciiine. The "Diner de l'Esf belongs to Aioace and Lorraine, and the artist Henner is one of THE ILLUSTRIOUS MEMKEK3. The owners of Chauibertin and Chablia call their "diner"' Bourtrui^enou. and the Franc-Comtsis, happy to possess (Jerome and Punter, meet at the "Gande" once each mouth. Anrelian Scholl. the witty chronujiieur, leads the tiordelais at the "Cadichoines." and the Yin d'Anjou is the dinner ot the natives of Anjou. The Diner dcs Ancicus eleors dv lycee de Nantes ceie j broted the other day the arrival of the new minister of war. Gen. Boulatiffer. If you have a name which terminates with a vowe you may belong to the Italian Polenta. He nau presides over the diner cottique. but for the city of Paris the most important is the diner dcs Parisieus de Paris. Ttieta are some "Parisians" born in Paris, but ihey are rare, very rare. These souvenirs of their native land are not sufficient for the convives. After eat ing a vol-au-vent as aßordeiais, Auvergnat or native of Nantes, the majority a few days later attack a pheasant in the quality of paiuteis. actors, musicians and w liters. 1 have spoken of many of the'-e dinners, and what others shall I name? There are the Mollerietet, tliose who respect and adiniie Moliere— all France belongs tothiscateirorv; the Diner dcs Dix, reserved for .he "Prix de Koine:" the Diner dcs Electricians, al ways omament«d by au electric light; the THE ST.

The Velllfl (owl) was a dinner of young men who wished to succeed, and who have proved what power there Is In the UXIOX OF AMBITION'S. directed toward the same end.. It was es tablished by artists when the salon began to be organized, not by the government. but by the artists themselves. 1 havo tpoken or the dinors where women are admitted, bill there are some which belong exclusively to women. The bas Ileus is composed of a dozen choice spirits who write for reviews, and counts for members Madame Jeannie Thilda, the Marquise d'Osmoiiu, the Bar oness Double (Stincelle), etc The Rienses, actresses and comic singers, meet at 1 >ur and's every three months. Sometimes they invi'e one or two theatrical critics; they pre fer tuo£e who have .spoken very severely of their number, and the unfortunate guest in placed at table beside his victims and is converted before the dinner cuds. He never leaves without promising to call ail his hostesses adorable. The dinners cost from $1 to $6 for each person, according to the diversity of fortune.
