The Fallen Niiotr Jf Sttd Story.
A beautiful poem entitled tlio "Fall
en Snow," a production of extraordi
nary merit, has been copied far and
wide by tho press of this country.
Tho author's name does not appear,
no doubt, to tho disappointment of
many readers who nduiiro the true
and betutifid in sent iment and com
position. Knowing her history, a
correspondent of tlio Macon (tia.)
Srntinrl, gives a brief biography.
Tho maiden name of tlio authoress
was Dora Shaw. She was born and
grew into womanhood in tho Wabash
Valley, Indiana. Der parents were
plain, honorable people, blessed with
plenty, though not rich, as tlio world
goes. They loved their beautiful
lora, and bestowed on her au educa
tion which very few females ever
receive. That accomplished, to wed
her to somo wealthy and distinguished
gentleman, as is too often tho case,
they bad the fatal delusion that tho
daughter's will should bo sacrificed
upon the altar of Mammon that!
wealth and ambition rdiould be pre-
lerreu to love.
In s")0, F. S. Lelbium and Dora
Shaw were married. LelSnum was a
citizen, and tho possessor of an im
mense property in St. Louis. Being
in tho Wabash Valley upon business
of bis house, ho saw, Lived and wood
this young, beautiful and accomplished
woman. Ho then obtained her pa
rents' consent, nnd marriage, which
followed, was hallowed by no love,
save upon tho side of tho husband.
Taking his bride homo to his splen
did palaco in tho city, sho was there
given everything that wealth could
bestow. .Still sho was not happy.
Did you ever see a contented eagle in
gilded cago ?
Tho wile, was at onco introduced to,
nnd became the admiration of tho best
people of tho city. To tho outward
world she appeared tlio happiest of
mortals, illustrating how few there
are who really know tho secret sor
rows of the human heart. .She passed
her hours in splendid misery.
At tho timo, tho famous theatrical
manager, Ben. DeRar, had a fino com
pany ut tho St. Louis Theatre His
leading star was Miss Annetto Dice
no less renowned for her acting
mimic I if "o than her beauty and many
womanly virtues. To this theatre
Mr. and Mrs. Lcliaum went ono night
and witnessed a piny. J)ora had
never been insido a theatre beforo,
and beforo tho curtain foil upon the
second uct, sho bad made a resolution
which would change tho whole course
of her life she had determined to be
an actress like Mits ineo.
An interview with tho manager
was easily obtained, who saw in the
aspirations of tho lady a chance to
mako a splendid hit, and pat gold in
his parse. Ho gave her cneonrago
meut, dismissed tho idea of her first
assuming a second part, but assured
her sho should make her I'KlU'T in the
leading character of tho play she had
witnessed "Julia, in the llunt hb.iek."
More than encouraged, indeed com
pletely resolved, Dora nt onco com
menced tho study of tho play, and,
possessing n quick intelligence, was
at last master of the languago in a few
days. Private rehearsals appeared
to givo perfect satisfaction to the
manager, ns well as to tho company
trained for that particular purpose
nr.d for that occasion. All this was
cpt from tho husband.
'" Uno morning tho city was thrown
into a fever by tho announcement in
nil the journals, and upon all the bul
letin boards that "Miss Dora Shaw
would appear thai night ns Julia, in
Sheridan Knowles great play enti
tled the Hunchback' Lcliaum and
his friends were struck as if from a
thunderbolt, from heaven. Ho first
entreated, appealed and threatened
his wife, and next tho manager, and
finally declared his intention to mur
der her upon tho moment sho made
her appearance. All to no purpose
Tho munager duly had all this passed
into tho streets, whit ll of course in
creased tho sensiition and strengthen
ed tho desire to attend.
Every ticket was sold by 9 o'clock,
and it wero needless to say that w hen
night came that place of amusement
occupied tho thoughts of tho ci'y.
The curtain rose Dora nppearcd
walked, stammered, blushed and
repented her part mechanically like
any girl reading her composition nt
an examination. Still tho audience
was pleased not by tho acting, but
by the novelty of the occasion. Tho
next, tho third, tho fourth, and fifth
nights wero like tho first. Tho mor
bid appeiito of tho public, satiated
with novelty, demanded good acting.
This Dyra could not supply. Tho
audienco fell off, tho managers be
camo restless anil refused to offer a
ro-encouragemcnt, but intimated that
sho had best go to another city.
In the tneantimo Lcliaum sued for
a divorce, which was readily granted
by tho Court. Tho next appearance
of Dora was in New Oi leans, where
her former social position was un
known, and where she was thrown
upon her merits as nn actress lor sue
cess. It wero noodles to say mat

Tho rest of the story is soon told.

"Loyalty," of which wo hear so
lunch, is of foreign origin, and was
introduced into this country by tho
Plymouth Dockers. In 1770, villi
the aid of Indians and Hessian hire
ling'', loyalists scalped rebels, eoniis
cated property, exterminated (Junkers
nnd banished Paplisls ''beyond the
lilies" of tho Massachusetts saints.
They were enemies to tho peaeo and
happiness of America then, and they
follow the same calling now; their
zeal is unabated still. int when
Lord Cornwallis, commanding tho
liritish forces, surrendered to - the
American army under tho command
of Washington and Lafayette at York-
town in ITS;!, tho terms of "capitula
tion" wero of u character to confer
honor upon tbn contiuorurs und the
vanquished. There Mas nothing bit

which pcaco was concluded, notwith

y i!lues" bad contended fyr seven
long years in unrelenting hostility.

treatment of American prisoners in
tho Jersey prison ships, and tho bar
barities of their Hessian allies under
Kniphausen, wero still fresh in the
general recollection; but neither tho
"Jersey L'luos" nor t he old Maryland
Line, in view of tlio triumph they
had achieved, felt like inflicting a Dill
of Pains or Penalties upon tho Tories
of tho Devolution. From tho ear
"TO to 'M, nearly nil tho members of
tlio rcsj eclatilo society -ol J ricnds,
nnd nunieious others in the Colonies,

Franklin's son, the Governor of New

forgavo tho past, nnd regarded all,
Whigs nnd Tories, as American citi
zens. Thcro was no confiscation of
property. No proscription of "Loy
alists" or "Itebcls" was for a moment
entertained. All were guaranteed the
rights of persons nnd property. Tho
true men of tho country were for a
(ieneral Amnesty nnd forgiveness ol
the past. As it was then, why cannot
it bo so now ? A common origin, n
common brotherhood, a common coun

than tho precepts of Immunity and
Christianity, teach us to lorgivo and

The n'ile Vital Crotr.
There is in this very city a young
married woman who is very strongly
aCdicted with a mania for imitating
the crowing of the morning pock,
w hile in a stale of somnolence. We
are assured that at tho hour appoint
ed by nature for chanticleer to fright
en nway tho midnight prowlers from
yawning graveyard', tho fortunate
liu.-hand of the "crowing wife," on the
fird nii;ht of his marriage, was rous
ed from bis slumbers 1 .3- a most lusty
crowin-r On opening his eves what
was his astonishment to behold hi
belter half seated in the middle of
the connubial couch of conjugal bliss,
flapping her wings and crowing in a
most loud and dear voice, stretching
out her neck after the most approved
rooster fashion ! Thrico did sho thus
"herald in tho morn," nnd then sank
back and slept on. In tho morning
he spoke to her about it, and was not
more surprised thuu amused to learn
that sho had been born in the country
and that a favorite "Shanghai," w hich
root-ted with bis feathered family in
tho hen coop near tho window of the
maternal bed-chamber, frightened her
mother by his loud crowing, and thus
the child" was "marked." Anil ever
since ves, even when a babe lying in
the craille.she bad been wont to awako
the echoes of the coming dawn by im
itating "yo rooster" and still, each
morn sho "flaps her w ing and crows."
As tho business of the husband re
quires him to rise very early, he is
rather pleased than otherwise to find
bis wile possessed of this additional
accomplishment, which dispenses w ith
tho necessity for nn alarm clock,

whether, in order to insure good for
tunoto his household, ho is in duty
bound fo stop bis wife's crow ing by
severing her musical throat. We ad
vise him to let bis "ben" crow on, so
long ns sho docs not "peck" Dim.
Some persons may question the
truth of this remitrkablo incident, but
we can assure such that it is truo in
every particular, nnd can bo vouched
for by responsible parlies who have
known the lady from infancy j ami
tho moral of it is, that Indies who do
not desiro "crowing children," shotilJ
not sleep too near tho bun-coop.
