Her Triumph, Iter Downfall nucl Hit Decapitation in Japan. Xi:\v VoitK, October 27.?Soon after the war a most beautiful young '?dy ar- ' rived in New York from the South. She brought letters to Thurlow Weed. , ' 1 Hugh J. Hastings and many other NewYorkers, vouching for high respectability in the South. Her family had lost heavily by the war. Soon the beautiful refugee won all hearts by her sweetness of manner and beautiful face. Among her suiters was the wealthy Mr. John ' IJeeeher, who married her. Mrs. ' Needier soon hecamc famous as the ' most beautiful woman in the city. She was beautiful in her lovely Fifth Avenue ' residence and graceful as a quei^n as she rode in the park. She led in Tu^auty at ' the Jerome l'ark races. Her lovely 1 face attracted Mr. Lloyd i'htcuix, who i soon won her affections away from her 1 husband. The story of her relations i with Mr. 1'hwnix ami her shooting him < as ho went up the steps of his &i-iter's 1 mansion on Fifth avenue were narrated ' in every newspaper of the time. Mr. 1 I'huMiix had his ticket bought for Kurop?\ hut Mrs. Heecher's ' pistol so frightened him that he gave up his I state-room ami left New York quietly ' for l'hiladelplia. A week after Mr. ' l'hamix sailed for i'.uropn. Mr. Beech- 1 er separated from his wife, though ital- ! most broke his heart, and she followed MMxrnix to Kurojie. Oncc iu l'aris, her \jeauty captivated, not M r. Ttneuix, but 1 Count l'ortallis, formerly of the French Legation at Washington. The first wife 1 of Count Portallis, who was Miss Jen- ' nie Holiday, daughter of Hen llolliday. i had been dead two years. Count Pour- ' tailis took Mrs Beecher to China, when? . he was an attache' of the?"French Legation. On their ivtiun .to Par- ' is the Count's money gave out 1 ami he abandoned Mrs. Heecher. In 1 l'aris Mr. John Iteecher, who never 1 ceased to love his wife, furnished her ' with money. After bewildering the 1 boulevards and turning half of Paris 1 mad with her bewildering loveliness, 1 <hn hi ti'ifl* o l'Vunnli I A IY'\v months of love titnl extravagance : and Mrs. Ilcecher ruined the ofiicer and ' he returned to I'aris, leaving her in J a- 1 pan. While there she won the heart 1 and became the mistress of the Japan- i esc Secretary of State, a very wealthy ' and highly titled Japanese. After as- ( tounding Court circles with her grace, 1 beauty and extravagance she at the end of a year had a quarrel with her hus- ' band and went to live with another titled Japanese, but inferior in rank to the ! Secretary of State. Last week came ' the astounding news that the Japanese ' Secretary of State had prevailed upon the Micado of the Empire to have Mrs. " Heechor beheaded. An otlicial edict was issued and the once beautiful refit- 1 gee from South Carolina was beheaded and her last husband imprisoned. ' Thus ends th? life of a woman once ' known and admired by thousands of 1 people in our city, ller sad fate is the talk of tlx; uptown clubs. fTlio it 11 itv j > oviilftiitl v mfftpu f a o ( Aiitn. what noted and very handsome woman, h native and former resident of Columbia?Miss Mary Boozer. She was the reputed daughter of Peter Burton, her mother's second husband, hut adopted by Dr. Boozer, the third spouse. Tho first husband was wedded on his deathbed in Philadelphia; the second died in a very singular manner in Columbia ; the third suicided in Newberry, and the fourth was abuudoned by the muchlymarried and really beautiful woman, whose remains now repose in a pauper's grave in New York. When Sherman evacuted this city in 18(55, among the hundreds who followed his army were Mrs. Feaster and her frail hut lovely daughter Marv, or Mario, as she was pleased to call herself. A hrief history of tlit*exploits of this young woman in New York and other cities?for she traveled extensively?was published a few years ago, while she was living as the wife of Count Pourtallis in China. This is the first intimation, so far as we ' know, that has been given to the public ns to her whereabouts and adventures since that time.]?Columbia Jiei/istvi'.

A Iteport. tliat the l^asl Countess Is liiviiiK in Switzerland?What a .Japanese OHit-ial Says?An lOiitineiit Hanker Reiterates the Statement ! That She was Killed. (From the New York Trutli. October 2Stli. ) J Tlx; ri-ported death of the famous l Mrs. Needier in Japiiu, under the most tragic circumstances. has led to a great 1 many contradictions and reassertions. j We feel hound to state that the report j was received by us from responsible i parties, and vouc.hed for by a prominent j banker of this city. It was published in good faith, and should it prove not t<> j be true, it will afford relief to many I persons who yet remember Mrs Needier with kindly feelings. A responsible gentleman railed at this office last night and showed us a letter purporting to come from Mrs. Needier from Switzerland. According to that letter Mrs. Needier was at Marienbad, Switzerland, its lately as September 27th last, and residing with her husband, tin? Count I'ourtales. If this 1)4! true, news of her return to .Japan ami of her execution could hardly have reached here so > soon. A liRNIAI. KIIOM TIIK .tAt'ANKSK CONSfl.A'I'K. Mr. \V. Wallace Hastings, assistant secretary consulate of .Japan was seen by one of our reporteis yesterday about ' Lhe matter. Mr. Hasting was somewhat inoveil, ami madf a decisive counter-statement. lie said lie wished to *peak in the name of the Japanese con>iil. In the first place, then; was no law or custom in Japan which punishes i mistress for infidelity. "The law there with regard to women of ill-fame is the same as hero?a lewd woman, in :aso ol life or death, being protected by Lhe law as much as any man. I do not Lhitik it necessary to give any proof of this, as it is plainly evident, to any who will take tin1 trouble to look into the Japanese laws, ami I do not wish togive the story any more publicity than possible." Ho continued: "The Japanese jllicinls, as officials, aro scrupulously careful ahout their private connections is well as public careers. 1 do not ?|1eak of the Japanese people in general, lint of theollicials as public olliecrs who have public trusts." When asked how the story could have originated, he said he could i.ot conceive how it came about, ''Nothing has been in the .Japanese papers about the matter :tnd nothing has been heard 011 the suit joct by the olHcials of the consulate. It has been slated that the C'ty of Yedilo was thrilled by the news of the tniRi'dv. This is all Dure fiction. I cannot understand the motive for such fabriea lions, ami the Japanese officials (Vol ileply hurt. The nation being comparatively new?that is, nccoidiii" to modern Kuropean ideas?and having adopted Kuropean usages, it has, if in no oth r way, evinced its ambition to be considered at least moral. And such a chargo against one of the highest officials in the realm is a heavy set-back to the nation's advance.

Marvelous Horsemanship. A St. Petersburg correspondent, writing to the London Standard, says : This morning I witnessed a wonderful display of horsemanship. It took place in the I'etrofFsky l'ark. Here in the presence of the Grand Duke Nicholas, ltwl timet nf ilio n aOw?/?i-o ??*/! guests, the regiment of Cossack (luavds went though an extraordinary series of exercises which threw the most daring feats of the circus into the shade. The entire'regiment passed at full gallop, in loose order, with many of the men standing upright in their saddles, others upon their heads with their legs in the air, leaping upon the ground and then into the saddle again at full speed, some springing over their horses heads and ii t\ cinrt/i * f?*Ai? n >t <1 I (.4VK1..1, ii mv givuiui, <11111 ' yet regaining their scats. While performing those feats all were blandishing their sabers and tiring pistols, throwing their carbines into the air and catching them again, ami yelling like maniacs [ Some men went past in pairs, standing with a leg on each other's horse?one wild fellow carried olF another dressed as a woman. The eilcct of the scene was absolutely bewildering, and it seemed as if the whole regiment had gone mad. Upon a signal being given, the . regiment divided uito two parts. One rode oil'; then halted and made their horses lie down on the ground beside [ them, waiting as in war the approach of the enemy. Tho other section of the regiment then charged down, and in an , instant every horse was on his feet, ! every rider in his saddle, and with a wild yell they rotle at their supposed . enemy. When tho maneuvers were' over, me reguneut rode pass, singing, , mid uncommonly well togather, a military chorus. Altogether, it was a inar, velous exhibition of daring horsemanship, and one hardly knew whether to admire the docility and mettle of the , steeds or the .skill and courage of the riders. All the foreign guests and ofli- ' cors were no less astonished than dolighted. Queen Isabella daughter of King Phillip II. who flourished in the 12th'centu' ry, vowed she would never change her linen till the city of Ostend had been taken by her soldiers. To tesify their regard for her persistency, the ladies of the court adopted a dingy yellow color ' for their ruffs and stockings, which ' they characterized l'esaheau. This is ' the origin of the tint eerue. (?o to ft. * Ilnddon & Co. for ruflV, stockings and ' I dross goods, thoy have nil colors.
