A few weeks ago there was printed in these columns an account of a woman who had for years been driving a oabin Lon don, without any suspicion' arising as to her sex. There have been many remark able instances of similar concealment not ably one which camo to light in England a few years ago at the death of an assis taiit inspector-general of army hospitals, by name Barry. The history of that ex traordinary person, will in all probability, never be known, and the causes and early circumstances of her extraordinary career are almost beyond conjecture. One fact, however, about her was beyond question thit bhe continuously had friends in very hieh places. , Barry, who had' always shown herself ready to fight a duel, and permitted no jokes as to her feminine appearance, dis played the utmost anxiety up to the last to conceal her sex, and made the attend ant on her last hours promiso to bury her just as she then was. But an examination was insisted on. These, however, are cases of women personating men. Let us turn to one more remarkable, that of a man personating a woman the Chevalier D'Kon. Charles D'Eon de Beaumont, advocate of the parliament of Paris, and censor gen eral of Belles Lettres .and history in that city, was born in Burgundy in 1727, of highly respectable parentage, received a superior education, and ws called to the Parisian bar. In li55 he was introduced to Louis XV, by the Prince de Conti, and it is said that thenceforward he maintained a secret correspondence with that eoverv eign. On this mission he went for the first time iu female attire. The object of the visit was to approach tbe Empress Eliza beth with the view of putting an end to the ill teeung between the trench and Kus sian courts, and more especially to pro mote the private interests of his patron, the prince de Conti, with the empress. The next year he went to St Petersburg as secretary ot embassy. During the next two years ho was aotively employed in in trigue and negotiation. Meanwhile he had been appoint ed a lieutenant of dra goons; in 1758 he was mado a captain; and a tew years later distinguished; hino- fielt in several engagements. In 17G1 he was appointed secretary of embassy to the duo de Puvernois, who camo to Kogiand aa embassador extraordi nary.tto conclude a peace, and certainly brought an extraordinary secretary. The chevalier's troubles, which be attributed to tho jealousy of Madame de Pompadour when she discovered his secret correspon dence with the king, now began. Walpole mentions D'Eon coming to breakfast at Strawberry hill with a large party of French people in May, 1763. Not long af ter this JNiveroois was recalled, and count de Uuerchy appointed in his place. Ik the interval between the departure of the one and the arrival of the other. D'Eon, who was appointed plenipo tentiary meanwhile, 'conducted him self in a surprising manner. The tern . porary position of embassador seemed to entirely turn his head, "D'Eon." writes Walpole to Lord Hertford, in November, 1763. "is still here; I know nothing more ot him but that the honor of having a hand in the peace overset his poor brain. This was evident on that fatal night at Lord Halifax's." (Where he had behaved in a most violent manner in the presence of M deGuerchy.) "When they told him his behavior was a breach of the peace.he was quite distracted, thinking it was the peace between this country and Ins. When count de Uuerchy arrived and brought letters of recall toD'Eon he declined to accept them, alleging them to be forged and rclused to vacate the oihee. 1 resent ly, to gratify his rage, he published Imuiphlet reflecting on various eminent Vcuchuien, more especially the count de Uuerchy, and this nobleman, in July, 176-1 prosecuted him for libel, and obtained a conviction. Walpole comments amusing- ioglyon this to Mann: "D'Eon's book will divert you extremely. He told peo ple in the park the other day Mme de Uuerchy, (who is remarkably plain,) is going to raris to take Wme. de rompa dour s place. . e do not bear that it is seriously filled up; I mean in the cabinet, for in the bed chamber it has long bee executed by deputies." V h,on s next move to obtain notoriety was to assert that the French government intended to carry him off privately by force, and he wrote to complain of this to Chief Justice Mansfield, Lords Bute and lenjple, and Mr. Pitt, and in March, 1764, a but ot indictment was, on his allegation. touud against the count de Uuerchy for conspiracy against the case of an embus sador, much perplexed tha. government, r uriuur proceedings were cvaaea. ' I June, Koo, as ne caa laued to come ud ior judgment in tne - JiDei suit, be was de clared outlawed, and on May 20.' 1771. caveat was entered at doctors' commons against Lis good, he being supposed to be uead, as ne bad been advertised tor vain. But not long ' after the chevalier turned up. refreshed himself with a due or two, and it was a wound received in one ot these which led to serious suspicion mat ne was a woman. Uut ot this arose trial which amazed all London. The causo came on before Lord Mans field on July 1, 1777. The plaintiff was Mr. Hayes, a surgeon, who brought ' tho suit, for the recovery of 700, against Mr, Jacques, a broker, the said Jacques hav injr, auouc six years peiore, received cer tain premiums ot fifteen guineas per cent. ior every one oi wmcn lie stood eniraeed to return owe hundretl guinea whenever it Bhould be proved that the Chevalier D Eon wan actually a woman. The counsel fur the nlaintiff was Mr. Buliers, af terward famous as a judge, who buiu iimuui. luijrva I'ciieviu lumseu now to be iu ossesdion ot positive proof D Eon a being a female. He called Mr, I x (joux, a surgeon, who stated that "h hud been acquainted with the Chevalier D'Eon from tho time when the due da Niveroois resided in England as Frcooh ambassador, and thut to his certain know edgo the person called the Chevalier D Eon was a woman. On cross-examioa t- I - ri i ... . uuu, .ur. u vjroui maica inai no naa ar rived at this knowledge in the course of midical attendance on the chevalier. Then M. De Moraude was called, w!m gaye equally strong evidence in support of that ot Mr. La Uoux. Lord Mansfield then charged the jury Ucutlemun, this ts a gambling debt should be glad if your vcrdiut could opcrato that neither party should be the winner; but as one must lose, yon have only to consider wluon or them ought . air.. ... win. un respect 10 tne contract on which the action is founded, there Is not anything illegal in it. It is binding on both parties. Lh discovery of the sex of certain person is to viva it operation, Thero was every external proof thut. the defendant was right in his conjecture. D'Eon dressed as a man. She would have fought duels. She was a captain of dra goons. Resided here as an ambassador. To all outward appearance, therefore, 'the defendant had the best of the wager. On the part of the plaintiff there was consider able difficulty. Suppose him to have been right yet the proof was not easy. It was not in tha power of any one to compel D' Eon to disclose her or his sex. Was it known, the proof still rested on the plain tiff. It was thrown out that he was sure of the fact at the time he laid the wager. The contrary bad appeared,-. He had no proofs in his power when the contract was made. The court of France was not ap prised of the fact It regarded D'Eon as a man." The jury gave for plaiutiff 702. On the 1 3th of the same month the che valier left England, declaring in the most solemn manner that she had no interest whatever in the policies opened respecting her sex, and that "she left dear England with grief, where' she- thought to have found repose and liberty." The case was subsequently argued before Lord Mans field on behalf of the defendant, and the defendant pleading nnder the terms of a recent act of parliament payment was not binding on him in such a case, this was admitted and the bets were lost D'Eon arrived at Versailles in 1777 in the uniform of the dragoons, but to satisfy the curiosity of the queen assumed presently the dress a woman. of In 1784 he returned again to London, where the French revolution of 1789 found him;. It appears by the records of the national assembly in May. 1792, that he petitioned the assembly, as Madame D' Kon, to be allowed to serve in the army. Madame stated that "though she had worn , tne dress ot a woman tor fifteen years, bhe was desirous of doffing cap and petticoats lor helmet and abre. lhe petition was received with great applause, but no other result, and as the. Republican authorities had taken away a pension grant ed him by Louis XV, he returned to Eng- and and gave lessons in iencing, an accom plishment in which he was admirably .pro ficient, lhe previous year he had advert ised the sale of his effects, which included various articles of female attire. He died in London, in poverty, in 1810, although a Tench authority states that he had a pen sion of 200 a year from Ueorge HI. His assumption of female attire seems to have arisen at first out of an exigency, and was probably continued for purposes ot vari ous kinds. A most ridiculous surmise is that it was adopted at one time to cover an intrigue with poor Queen Charlotte, who certainly never before had been bus pected of such an indiscretion, and, ' a French commentator observes. "We may be permitted a doubt on this point" D' Eon seems to have been a vain, excitable creature who loved notoriety, and had' a restless craving for excitement, to satisfy which he would have done anything. A psst-mortem examination was made by eminent French and English surgeons. which left no doubt as to his being of the male sex. . - HEW ADVEBTISElinilS; RfMlf AGCIITC Wanted to tell "The Peo DUUIt AOEllldple'a Common Senxe Med ical Adviser." .
