THE HOUSEKEEPER'S TRAGEDY
Ono day, as I wandored, I heard a complaining,
And saw a poor woman, tho picture of gloom;
She glared at the mad on hor door•etop ('twos raining),
And this was her wail as she wielded her broom:
"Ohl life is a toll, and love is a trouble,
, And beauty will fade, nud riches will flee,
And pleasurbs they dwindle, and prangs they double,
And nothing is what I could wish It to be.
"There's too much of worriment goes to a bonnet;
There's too um& of Ironing goes to a shirt
There'a nothing that pays for the time you waste on It ;
There's nothing that 'lasts us but trouble nod dirt.
•"In March it is mud; it's slosh in December ;
Tlie midsummer broizes are loaded with dust;
In rail the leaves litter; In muggy September
The uall•paper rote and the cundle•eticke rust.
There are worms in the cherries, and On, In the roses,
AMI ants is the sugar, and mice in the pies
The risbbish of spiders no mortal supposes„
And savaging coaches, and damaging slice.
"It's au coping nt Six, and it's dusting at set en;
It's victuals at elglat, and it's dishes at nine;
It's potting and panning from tau to eleven;
We scarce bre.tk our tat ore wo plan how to dine
"With groove nod with grime, from corner to:center,
Forever at wer, and forever alert,
No rot for n day, lot the enemy enter
-1 spend my whole life in a ntrugglo with dirt.
"Lost night, hi fry dyeam y I was stationed forever
On a littlo hero mho in tbo midst of the eon;
My one chance of life was a ceaseless endeavor
To sweep of the waves exo they wept off poor me,
.111 . 68 no dream—again I behold ill
I yield; I am helpless my Cato to avert: ,
She relied down hur sleeve.; her apron she folded;
Thou lay down and died, and was buried in dirt.
DR. GALL AND THE PRINCE.
FROM TILE GERMAN
The occasion was one of those pri
vato balls in Vienna, such as could be
given only by Prince Diotternich, that
great statesman, who, fifty years ago,
had reached the pinnacle of power,
and ruled with subtle hand the desti
nies of V,urope. At this festival there
wore assembled all the noble and dis
tinguished personages then clustering
around the throne of Hapsburg. All
the ambassadors and plenipotentiaries
of the European nations, the celebrit
ies of the court of Vienna, the nobility
of -the empire, clad in dazzling uni
forms and decorated with brilliant or
411'8, thronged the spacious saloons
A smal army of belles, blooming with
grace and beauty, 'and glittering with
jewels, shone like of the first order
amid the assembly; and of them all

Whom the artful diplomatic host had
secured tho good graces of' the gallant
Emperor Alexander of Russia, bore
tho palm of lovelitiesS. It is Well
known how many diplomatic combi
nations have been brought about by
the esprit of beautiful' woman, and by
their adroitness in intrigue. Among
the gentlemen guests.assombled in'tho
guy saloons, there was only tine who,
like the Prinoe4sdo T—, command
ed in such high 'degree the attention
of the company. ne. was Count I'
to whose high position; wealth, hand.

tesy this attentionitud soon been con
ceded. Only a few days, before he bad
arrived at Vienna from his estates in
Bohemia, and had"presonted himself
to the Emperor,''his, feudal chief.—
Metternich's keen eye sought , in ,this
yhung man a clever tool, to whom 'n
important part in the diplomatic dra 7
iria of the world might„ be aisigned.
While• - the ToMpany promenaded
with easy..eleganee in•the gay saloons,'
two men, halt' hidden by the massive
portieres, stood in a niche, engaged in
lively conversation. One of them was
of a supple figure, not over forty,

dexterously that, those,whom he had
selected as his victims could not ab

ist appeared as the moStainiable,aceossi
We man of the world; •and °Von not
devoid of generous emotions. So be
appeared just now toward his compan
ion, with whom he was conversing.—
This was a man apparently nearly GO,
but'elastic with the vigor-and spirit of
a much`Yotingerage: The high, bald
forehead, the quick"'eye,' the marked
features, full of expression,' signified
the deep thinker and sharp' observer.
This was Prancis Joseph Gall, the cel
ebrated physiologist, and whose "doc
trine of the brain," after his lectures
about it had been prohibited at first at
Vienna, at that time again belonged
to the allowed topics of conversation
with the beau monde of Vienna, and
made hint the mostconsulted scientific
medical man of the imperial city.
We hear what•seenis to bo the end
of a ;conversation.
"Then you share the general opin
ion, Doctor,"' Metternich asked with
a smile, "'that Princess S—is an ad
mirable lady ?""
"Do you think her capable of ae:
complisbing a political intrigue ?" the
':The looks of the charming lady,
and the expression of her face indicate
a desire to venture in that field," Gall
replied, letting his eye rest on the sub
jeut of their conversation ;."but I may
not mistake if' I presume to say that
she tacks perseverance and the pene
trating order of mind which is necos
sm‘y to bring to a victorious end what
she may commence with the best spir
"So, so !" smiled Metternich, a little
doubtfully. "You, however, with your
infallible gift of prophecy, indeed
ought to know, But how do you
judge that splendid young man, Count
? In a fortnight, since he en
tered the circle - of our society, be has
conquered the hearts of all our 'ladies.
I do not blame the fair' ones' for' it,
when oven the mon—myself not ex
eluded—are attracted by his keiluiiii)
chivalry and manly grace, Combined in
a rare'manner 'with thq profoundest
knowledge. The Emperor intends at
taching him to the court by 'marriage.
I prophesy a
. brilliant future to the
young man. Eh, what do, you say to
it, my dear Doctor ?"
"I only saw him passing by," Gall
replied; "ho really i posseSses:all the es
termil qualities which 'your highodas
has been kind enough to mention to
me; but novertheless
"l could have imagined," the Prince
laughingly interrupted him, "that you
on the strength of your system, would
only conditionally grant the correct
ness of my opinion. But at least, do
not apply too hurriedly - Your system
"My system is founded on keen and
long observations only,and I have not
yet had a sufficient opportunity for
them. I only beg to remark that ,my
system adheres to the principle, that
a beautiful outside does not always
warrant good and excellent inner
"Concerning the Count, I believe
mysta to be so little mistaken . about.
him, that I leave him unconditionally
to your examination. Analyze, his
features, touch and feel the bumps or
'protuberances' of his brain, as you
please, and I am sure you will arrive
at the conclusion that there never was
a fine: soul in a mord beautiful body."
"Perhaps—" began'Gall, when a
valet of the Prince respectfully ap
proached him and announced that just
now a courier had arrived who would
deliver' his despatches toshis highness.
With only the words, "I-shall be' back
soon," Metternich left the physic:Mu
to give his attention to official - duties
for a short time in his, study.
Gall, remaining alone, nodded his
head wonderingly over the almost ve
hement patronage which Condi;
enjoyed, not only from the powerful
diplomatist, but also from the court
and its numerous .planets. He now
began, daring the festival, unobstirved
ly but closely, to scrutinize the "favor
ite of fortune," and tU pOnetrate, us it
were, "the spirithal soundings" of his
systeth, to the Count's inner heart.
Count P--L—had just danced a ma
zurka with the chahning Prineeee Z—
and that with an elegance in which
grace and boldness of movement were
combined:' "Ladies find gentlemen
gave vent to their• admiration of the
excellent dancer, when' the observing
physician was slightly tapped on the
shoulder. It was the Prince, who,
returned from his study,. again ‘ con
ducted the doctor into' his conversa
tional niche. '
qlave you now, Doctor,subjected the
young Count to a closer observation,
and convinced yourself that he is a'—
GO stepped nearer to , the kiince,
and .after having looked around as •if
to assure hintaelf ,tbat there was no,
body listening, whispered resolutely
into,bia ear: • ,s'Your perfect creature
my Prince; more than a—
. 4 q3y all the .saints, fleeter!" the
Prince replied; - with' a forced smile,
which could not quite , cover his bud
humor, 'you seem to be strangely dis
posed to joking to-day, or your other
, wise very esteemed system has got a
"Your blghness Won't' perhapif have
no leisure to - listen to' my arguments,"
Gall replied, bowing . gravely; but
time will show which of us has been
mistaken—you, my Prince, or I."
feW years afterward a ghastly,
unheard o‘ crime throw not only Ger
many, but the whole of Europe, into
terror. A criminal of high mantling,
brought to trial, was sentenced to lose
his title and honors, and thou to be
beheaded. The mimeo was execu
The criminal was the amiable, ele
gant Count P—, the favorite of Met
ternich and the nobility of Austria.
Not long after that' time Prince
Metternich visited Dr. , Gall at Paris,
where he had renurt;ed,, and where, in
1828, ho died at his country scat_in
Montroege, neai r ilin`slorench capital.
When 'the' Prince entered the room of
the savant' a young man left it with
the easy, elegant manners' of a man of
the world." ', ' ' '
"Who was that nice young man who
just left ?" the Prince asked.
"A',ltussian 7 La' M. do It—,
studies medicine here fur his pleasure;
,besides, ho seems to be an ardent
politician,".. Gall replied. . „
"1 must confess that seldom a young
man made, by his exterior, such: a fa
vorable impression upon me as that
ono," remarked Metternich.
"Your highness's kindness is too
well known to 'Tie," the physician' re
plied, "to surprise me with regard to
this stranger. I however, venture -to
remind your highness only of Count
P—," Jilin added, with slightest
"I remember him," the Prince. said,
with a sweet-sour face. "I deceived
myself their: ' Ari - feliards ill. de—,

face shows the expression of a decided

corrected him,."that his face bears the

bear. Count was a mad-mare,

But this Russian is a wild animal by

That standard, reliable, safe, non
coittmittal and at .preiont very vexa
tious subject, the "weather, was the
starting point for a whimsical scene
wo witnessed the. other day in a Ger
man store not .a hundred miles from
the Seventh ward. • `That the reader
may understand the story fully, we
will state, that the predominant ele
ment of the ward is Teutnic, and the
opaque to sheer = absurbity whore a
joke is involved. The proprietor was
busy over his saw and knife, when en
ter a woman dripping with rain, with
flit remzirk in German, "It is very
wet." 'No reply. The proprietor had
his customers to attend to. Directly
afterwards an elderly man, tent with
ago, and struggling to manage a cane,
umbrella and bdaket at the saine'time,
entered with the words "It is very
wet." The butcher looked up, glow
ered and bent- to his work again,
deigning no reply. Five customers
stood in a row. Directly he would be
prepared to fill their orders. A poor,
miserable looking wrcitch,almost dwar
fish in appearance, with a head admi
rably calculated to play "snook" in the
mountain scene in "Rip Van Winkle"
(evidently not a customer,) stumbled
into the store, and - nodding towards
the door said "Good day, Sir. —. It
is very wet to day." Whatever had
come over the butcher no one'coitld
tell. He sawed the bones violently;
he slashed 'instead of cutting tbe-nieat.
Lastly, the driver of a teamitt big bur
ly man, with a node like a door:knob,
only with more of a shine to it than
door-knobs boast in wet weather, sud
denly pulled up in; front of the store,
add springing from his seat, entered,
shaking himself like a spaniel. For a
wonder his voice had a Hibernian
sound: "I'M sayin', that's a wet day.
Suddenly the butcher laid down his
knife, and staring at the last corner,
burst out with, "Dut's wat you all say;

It was evident: from the lowering of
some ballast huge on the guy poleal,
that during this passage' across, 'the
rope slackened a good deal, but- Blod

not think it important, for after ashort

it became apparent from the decline

much, and people who understood tho

meet at the other end of•the rope, but
Blondin looked extremely cool and
confident, and no fears for his safety

stopping cleverly ; about :midway, ho
began to traverse the incline. It then
became apparent, front the gradual
slacking, of his speed, that he was do
doing some hard work, and murmurs
began to rise frOM the - audience.'

although to the'danger of disturbing
his equilibrium, ho tried to 'jerk the
machine forward; it refused to move.
