When the American Historical Novel comes into fashion I know of an unmarked gravo up the Hudson which will tempt pilgrimages from the novelist. It is the grave of one of the most unique figures in the history of this Nation's first hundred years. John Vanderlyn, a country lad born in 1776, who rose to honors, knew many of the joys of the world, was the friend of rulers on two continents, and finally dying the victim of a broken heart at the age of seventysix. lioa buried thuro. It is a strange story that of John Vandcrlyn's career. A boy in the street, with a bit of charcoal and something akin to impudence, ho sketches on a blacksmith's door a caricature of a. visitor to the little village of Kingston. That visitor was Aaron Burr, and he saw the picture?saw it, smiled, and asked questions about its perpetrator. When Aaron Burr went back to his law office in New York he took the lad with him. lie bought him books, directed his studies, and finally placed him as a pupil under Gilbert Stuart, who, in Philadelphia was finishing his famous portrait of Washington. Studies in Paris and Rome followed. The charcoal sketchor of a country town was developing into a wonderful painter. In a competition at Paris, where all the aiists of Europe were striving for honors, he places a cold, rough, harsh picture?cold, rough, and harsh at least in contrast?with tl.e gaudy colorings which all the rest of the world hangs up. "Marius on the Ruins of Carthago," he called it. The old Roman hero represented sitting alono, sorrowful yet defiant, amid the wreck of former glory. Xapelcon walked through the art gallery. When he faced the picture he halted, came to % dead standstill, and in admiration was mute for minutes. 4,Give the medal to that," he commanded. John Vandorlyn was famous. And all the Fates rushed forward to make him glad. Aaron Burr was proud. JHe was grateful, too, for fortune had dealt unkindly with him meantime. He had striven for the Presidency of his country and had lost. The killing of Hamilton made him an exile. Generous interest it was that ho received upon the money ho had given Vanderlyn, who was now a hero in Europe's aristocratic circles. The artist shared all his honors and all his gold with his old-timo benefactor, the man who had become to one hemisphere the very * personification of evil, and yet wh? in oarlier days, with no selfish aim or hope, had taken from an humble place a strange lad to spend money and affection upon. Biographical dictionaries and art histories o l enough about Vandcrlyn's profc-ssonal achievement?. His "Ariadne" is famous the world over. His panel in the National Capitol of "Tho Landing of Columbus'' was done in answer 10 his country's urgent request. All this everybody knows. I have learned something widely different, something , far more interesting, for as the world ?ocs lovo far outstrips professional tchevements. John Vanderlyn never married. Why, has newjr been told in print. The few residents who survive ?descendants of a brother?talk sometimes of a romance in his strange carccr. One of them has talked to me, and I havo listened with deep interest. John Vanderlyn loved Theodosia Burr?Aaron Burr's only child?and 1'hcodosia Burr loved John Vanderlyn. Reared at susceptible ages in the same house, love was not unnatural in a ' brotherly ar.d sisterly fashion.; so far the great politician was pleased. A let' ter from Paris that fell into his hands, through the confidence of his daughter, <howed him that the young artist was dividing his time between sights in the Louvre and thoughts in New York. In this letter John Vanderlyn poured out 'he strong affection and asked the girl to promise that somo day when place ind fortune should be won; she would be his wife. Aaron Burr first smiled, then scoffed, ind finally, in anger issued orders. Theodosia obeyed. A dutiful girl she was; for jn doing her father s will she lid it knowing that there was more than a light reason in his direction. He told her plainly of other plans arranged for her; plans which sacrificed all of her own future to that of the parent whom she worshipped. Politics was at the bottom. This was before the historic contest in Congress between Jefforson anrl Tlnrr fAl? ProairlnnA ?*nn UKV4 A/Ul ?UW M * VP1UVIIVJ I 4IHIUIJ Burr needed friends, close and influential. Through the gift of a daughter's hand ho would win what strategy might otherwise take from him. He would marry her to a connection of a powerful political family of the State ; ai\d influences at Albany hitherto lacking might be depended upon. There was willingness with the lover?more willingness than perception. A slighting word} was spoken of John Vanderlyn ?"A 'pauper" was the phrase the courting lov<tjp used. He used it but once. ' Tho blood of Aaron Burr mounted to the chocks of tho daughter and with an air that was hitter as bitter might be the dismissed him. A scene between father and daughter, a storm with all the flaming pyrotocnics that the Burr spirit could muster, came quickly. A Leiiitenantof the discarded lover's family showed speedily resentment of tho slight. Even had tho spirited girl relented, it would have been too late. Love had given away to warfare, Aaron Burr smiled another of his biting smiles and from upbraiding came to flattery for the honest part which fhe had played. But not ono word would he hear of Vamlerlyn as a suitor. The painter, still working hard, not yet recognized, had heard from his sweetheart's pon the story of a father's interference, and tho motive for it; and he heard, too, that above all things on earth she treasured tho penniless painter,s love. A sharp letter came from Paris to Burr; but the cool headed politician essayed no answer. The next letter that John Vanderlyn had from tho Burr household was brief and free from any ardor; it was but a formal announco mcnt of the betroihal of Theodosia Burr to tho brilliant young South Carolinian, Joseph Allston. She weddid in order to secure Southern influence for her father. Allston was an honorable man ; and perhaps before tho sea had swallowed them up in 1816, she had learn to love him. He was worthy of her affection; to him there was no knowledge that a wife came in by barter and by sale. He never suspected that it was for votes to aggrandize Aaron Burr that Aaron Burr's daughter said to him Yea when he asked her to big home. And there was no further knowledge given to Vanderlyn either. Theodosia Burr was too loyal to herself to declare a lovo that was wrong in the world's rating. So came it that John Vanderlyn fell into cynicism. So it was that he chose to believe ere long that the hand had gone where tho heart had led ; and he exonerated Aaron Barr of all part in his fate. When Burr, accessed of high treason, needed a friend and protector, Vandoirlyn. stretched out his whole fortune as a free-will offering. He won fame and livod in all the glory of it for years, trying to forget what richer thing he had hoped for and lost. Giving no thought for to-morrow, he drifted on painting now and then, as the whim dictated or as his nurse demanded. And when the end came it found him penniless, friendles, forlorn. When in the mem room of a hotel in his native town, they found him one morning in 1852, clutched by death, there were whispers that by his own will had a period been put to his career. And now out in the bleak cemetery on Wiltwyck Heights a little mound^ unmarked and overgrown with briers, faces us as the world's tribute to a map whose genius would have dazzled mankind had not the shadow of a hopeless love fell upon it. - When the story of John Vanderlyn's life is fully told, American history will have been strengthened. Had he never loved Theodosia Burr, Aaron Burr might have been President of the United Slates. THE PHELLER-MAXWKLL CASE. An Insurance Company Demanding Proofc of Death. St. Louih, June 21.?Another startling development in the Maxwell-Preller case was made public to-day. James F. Dradyj a representative of Cook's Tourist Agency of London, England, in this city, received a long letter from the agency instructing him to use every effort to learn whether it was a truth and a fact that C. Arthur Preller had been murdered, as reported, and his body placed in a trunk. The document went on to say that Mr. Preller, before leaving England, had insured his life in Cook's Agency for a heavy sum, approximating $20,000. The company had Arui alionrtjarl fltn in/liffnri>nnn aT liia ill ov uuavi ?v/u biiu iiiuiiivi viivu v/i ilia relatives regarding tho disposition of the remains, and this caused suspicions. Since the first announcement of Proller'B death, the letter stated, his relatives had beon bringing everything to bear on the company to pay tho insurance money. The manager of the agency beleived that it was best to wail awhil?, especially after having read the accounts published in tho London papers concerning tho attempt of Maxwell t.r> lmv a bodv in Roston. Mr. Cook in. structed Mr. Brady to write him full particulars of tho ease, and forward what legal evidenco there was regarding the man's death. The agency insured Mr. Preller on his former trip, and alsc insured him onco when he went on the continent. They have refused to paj over the insyi^nco money until overj douht regarding Preller's death is re moved. Tho smile of Maxwell , whei arrested, and his . state:nont that al would bo explained at tho light time are treasured by the insurance companies m strengthening the theory that the bodj in the trunk was not Preller's. '' i MINISTER LOWELL'S RETURN. The Ex-Minister's Impressions of English Politics. Boston, Juno 20.?James Russell Lowell arrived to-day on the Scythia. Mr. Lowell said that his voyage had been a delightful one, but ho was very glad to get at home again. Almost his first inquiry was regarding the present state of affairs in the English politics. "When I left" said he, "things were in a very unsettled condition. I suppose Lord Salisbury is forming a new Cnbi net. Has it been completed yet ? lie is a very able leader, and will undoubtedly make a successful ministry. But tliero is yet much trouble ahead of him. The Redistribution bill is to be passed, aud then there will be a new election. It will bo a critical period for him, and U 1U nncoiKlt) fliof Oin T .iKnrolc n tr vnf sccurc control of the Government. "I foresaw the defeat of the Gladstone ministry some time ago, but the Conservatives will find that they must largely pattern after his policy concerning the Government of Ireland. Ilis policy was to give the Irish more than justice demanded. He conceded all that was possible. Why, Irish fanners have vastly inore advantages than Scottish or Eng* lis farmers. They are beginning to see this. This Irish question will be settled peaceably. They are human as well as tho English; about one-fourth of them are throughly loyal to the Government, and a much larger propotion would like to be, but they arc overawed by some of their leaders. WHY IKBIjAND CANNOT DK BEPAItATE. ' These Irish leaders are a peculiar people. They talk for tho sake of talking and do not pay tnuch attention to what they arc saying, nor do they stop to consider the effect of their language. I believe Mr. Parnell >s throughly in earnest and sincere in his effort in behalf of his countrymen. But many of them are not so earn9st. Wealthy Irish men do not seem to have a very warm attachment for their country. They seem to prefer living in Londoiror Paris. I do not sco how by any other policy Ireland can be separated from England. The natural location of the two countrioH forbids it. The country that frees Ireland must first conquer England, and then Ireland would bo just as poorly off as hor people say she now is. The countries aro too close to admit of two differeht governments. "There was much talk about nnnoxing Ireland to the United States, but the absurdity of that idea is plain on its face. Why, all the socalled navy of the United Stntes could not protect her property. I say so-called, for in reality our country has no navy, but I don't know but that we are just as well off as though we had an extensive fleet of gunboats. An English naval officer told mo only a short timo ago that our policy with regard to a navy was. on tho whole the best. 'Do not create a navy,' said he, until you need it, and thon build your vessels with all tho latest modern improvements.' I doubt not but that he is right. Of course, it would take a little time, and would causo an enormous outlay of money. AMKRICA AND ENGLAND. "I don't think, however, that we will bo called upon to uso a navy against England right away. Tho relations between tho two countries could not bo more pleasant or friendly. Yet, war is not an impossibility. We have English blood in our veins, and wo have just as much English pride as those across the water. . Neither country would consent to be bulldozed, but that is not likely to occur. The policy that has been maintained between the two countries is, I think, the wisest that could be pursued, and I am confident that my successor will do just right. Mr. Phelps is a man of great ability; personally he is one of the plcasantust gentlemen I ever met. I am sore that the interests of our country will not suffer in his hands." I THE AlfOI.O-RUSSIAN DISPUTE. Mr. Lowell thought that Lord Salis , bury world also carry out Mr. Gladstone's policy concerning the ^.ngloRussian dispute, "lie is of the war > party, but now that the responsibility rests upon his shoulders ho will bo very careful how he involves the wholo cont tinent of Europe in a war, for that is s what a declaration of war between England and Russia would mean. I have I never thought from tho first that there - would be war. I see that much was I said about its probable effect upon trade I in our country, but it would not have \ been so advatagcous as has been supI posed." > Tho change in the ministry would 5 havo wrought a change in the relations r of Mr. Lowell to tho English Govern* r mont. "I could not have boon more - pleasantly situated," said he. "Had it i not been for the change ftp my family 1 relations I should probably have stayed V in England. There is nothing but Engs liah blood in toy Veins, and I have often f remarked" that I was just as much an Englishman as they were.'* Cleveland's Cabinet Retrenches and Reforms. Washington, Juno 23.?It is learned to-day that the dismissals made in the 1 department of justice yesterday will take effect on the first of July, when n new disbursing clerk and six new assisj taut attorneys or law clerks will be appointed to take the places of the pre- : sent occupants of these positions. The entire force of special examiners, numbering five and including the general agent, has been dismissed, and it is understood that these officers will be abolished. Secretary Manning made a number of dismissals in the treasury department today, including sixteen clerks in the auditor's office and eighteen me."-Singers, most of whom were employed in the internal revenue bureau. It is that more removals will be made between now and the 1st proximo. Mr. Graves, chief of the bureau of engraving and printing, had an interview with Secretary Manning this afternoon in regard to the proposed re-organization of that bureau. The policy to bo pursued is not quite settled, but it annears to bo <rnnr?v- I * ? I ally understood that the force will be reduced and the expenses otherwise curtailed. The President made the following appointments to-day : Edward II. Strobel, ' of New York, to bo secretary of legation to Spain : Wtn. W.

" , MINISTER KEII.Y'8 CASE. 1 The Cabinet meeting to-day was at- ( tended by all the members except Sec- ' retaries Endicott and Whitney.

Abbeville's Sheriff and Coroner. Tho Northern philanthropist who recently traveled through the South in specting thy penal and charitable institutions of this section, and who so far condesccndcd as to say that soroo of those ho examined were as good as similar institutions in the North, missed the opportunity of his life when he failed to visit Abbeville* county, in thi* State. The grand jury of that county in its formal presentment to the court, at the last term, complained that the prisoners in the county jail "fared too sumptuously," and recommended that the fare provided by tho sheriff should be reduced. I think it would bo safe to say that no such charge has ever been made against any jailer in any county in any Northern State, and when it is remem bered th*t the sheriff receive* a certain amount for diet of prisoneia, whether he gives them bread and water or plum pudding, the case becomes a most extraordinary one. That the sheriff at a loes to himself, should provide such costly food for his prisoners, as to call for a reprimand from the grand jury, is something remarkable and should bo held up us shining example of Southern civilization, to be imitated, if it can, by the Northern barbarians. This grand jury was evidently composed of citizens determined to investigate fully *11 county affairs, and when they discovered abuses they did not hesitate to expose them. Further on in their presentments they say "the coroner is over-zoalons in - ?MW ui ma duties." This officer *?ust bo an importnlion from Charleston, for Judge Reed used to say that there was only one individual in the world who could make larger bills against the county than trial justices, and that was tho coronor of Charleston. The Judge said that a man might die in Charleston after years of lingering illness, surrounded by his family and friends aud physicians, and it was then necessary to post a guard at the dour of the house to keep out the coroner. But think of a county whero the prisoners arefed, and the coroner is too zealous in the discharge of his duties. It would seem that the benevolence of the sheriff and the official in tegrity of the coroner wore virtues to be commended rather than vices to bo condemned.?A uyusta Chronicle. Ex-Judge T. J. Mackey is preparing* Court-Martial Code. A special dispatch from Washington 0 the Now Orleans Time-Democrat of Tune, 20 says; "Judge T. J. Macney svho was counsel both for Swain and llazen before tho Court-martial which recently tried those officers, is preparing 1 very important work. In a conversation with a correspondent to-day he itatod that the United States Government has no code for the use of Courtunrtial, but depends entirely upon the customs in vogue with the Enzlish [Iorsc Guards. Not only this, but, we ijeing ignorant of the changes and mod(icalions constantly made by Parliment, ire proceeding upon rules and usagos nany of which are now obsolete. For example, in the Swain caso the first Hiuling did not suit tho President and was returned for correction. The secjnd or revised fifuling shared the 6atna fate, until finally when the third sentence came the defendant had been punshed far more severely than the Court, n the first instance, had thought necestary.

Mrs. Lucille Y sou It Dudley, the Engish woman who shot O'Donnovan-Rosia, makes tho following appeal to tho tublic in the New York Times : i|n ? - -e s. < jai inc nuiiiu 01 viuu, lniorm me whether there is any means under hear;n whereby justice can bo obtained in America, with the exception of the thoroughly national method of buying it, which is not in my power ? If the Irish influence in New York and especially in the District Attorney's office is so powerful that 1 cannot hope for common justice, then for God's sake let me be sent to another country. In England foreigners are entitled to equal, if, indeed, not to more consideration than our own countrymen, but here it appear* that English women are condemned to an unlimited sentence without even the bare formula of a trial. I was arrested on the 2d of February, and although my case has been set down three times for a definite trial, I am to-day, the 22d of June, to all appearanco as far from it as I was in the commencement. I now ap peal through the press to the publio for common justice." ^ How Cleveland Solved the Ponle.
