laud's Sermon Bitters has saved my life. • There is no
mistake in this. It is Touched for by numbers of my
comrades, some of whose name are appended, and who
were fully cognizant of alt the circumstances of my
'case. I tun, and have been for the last four years, a
member of Sberman's zelebrated battery, and under
the immediate command of Captain R. B. Ayres.—
. Through the exposure.attendant upon my arduoutrdn
ties, I was attacked in btovember last with inflammation
of the lungs, and was for seventy-two days in the hos
pital. This was followed by great debility, heighten
ed by an attack -of dysentery. I was then removed
from the White ROM, and sent to this city on board
the Steamer "State of Maine," from which I landed
on the 26th of June.' Since that time I have been a
bout as low ae,any one could be and still retain a spark
ofvitality. 'For a week or more I was scarcely able to
swallow anything, and if I did force a morsel down, it
was immediately thrown up again.
I could at even keep a glass of water on my stom
ach . Life could not last under these circumstances ;
and, accordingly, the physicians who bad been work.
lug faithfully, though unsuccessfully, to rescue me
from the grasp of the dead Archer, frankly told me
they could do no more for me, and advised me to sea
a clergyman, and to make such disposition of my lind-'
tod feuds as best suited me. An acquaintance who
visited me at the hospital, Mr. Frederick Steinbron,
Sixth below Arch Street, advised me, as a forlorn
• hope, to try, our Bitters, and kindly procured a bot
tle. From the time I commenced taking them the
gloomy shadow of death.receded, and I am now, thank
tied for it, getting better. Though I have but taken
two bottles,l have gained ten pounds, and I feel san
guine of being permitted to rejoin my wit's and daugh
ter, front whom I have heard nothing for 18 months:
for, gentlemen, am a loyal Virginian, from the vicin
ity of Front Royal. To your invaluable Bitters I owe
the certainty of,lifo which has taken th e place of vague
ear,.—to your Bitters will I owe the glorious privilege
fof again clasping to my boom those who are dearest to
me in life. Very truly yours, ISAAC MALONE.
We fully comas , in the truth of the above statement,
as we bad despaired of seeing our comrade, Mr. Malone,
restored to health.

London Paris le ter to the ondon Tunes
has the follolsing : "A singularly ro
mantic case of 'two children claiming
one mother bas just come before the
Imperial Court of Agen. ID October,
1833, a widow . named:krancoise Beau
soleil Dufour,'gave birth to a female
child, her husband having died on
the 6t13,0f Fe.bruary in the same year.
This child she,put in gie turning box
of the FoUndling Hospital ofM.arman
de, having reasons which'are not ex
plained for concealing the birth. By
the French, law the legitimacy - of a
child born within three hundred
days'of the husband's. death cannot
be disputed. r 'ln the present instance
the birth took place considerably
within that pei-iod ' but it is conjec
tured that the mother feared the opin.
ion of the neighbors might not be in'
accordance o,ith legal presumption.
However Om may be, she presented
herself at the Foundling hospital a
few days after the infant bad been
deposited there, satisfied the directors
that she had means to-support the
child, and told them she intended to
take it out very soon. In order to
establish.the4dentity of her .infant,
she mentioned that among , Its linen
was a piece of printed muslin-of a re
markable.patiern, and this inuslin the
lady superior of the hospital admitted
having noticed. She succeeded, (eon
trary, as I rather think, to, the rules
of foundling hospitals) in inducing
the directors to tell her where the
child was. They said it was with a
wet nurse named Gaillard, in a vil
lage which they mentioned. To this
village Madame Beausoliel (Neuve
Dufour) repaired, inquired for Ma
dame Gaillard, overwhelmed the in
fant which she found in her cottage
with maternal caresses '
ed the whole household by 'the assn•
ranee that she would -augment the
meagre pittance allowed by Govern
monk for 'bringing up a chance child.
These promises were more than kept.
Her visits to little Denise Achet—•
that was the name officially given in
the hospital to the child, who was
registered, as the custom is iq such
establishments, "born of unknown
parents"—were frequent, and every
time she brought with her delicacies
and comforts for the child and pres
ents for the nurse. At the end of
four years she reimbursed the hospi
tal the expenses it, had incurred, and
took the child to her own home,
where she so managed that it was re
ceived without question as a sister by
the four children who were born be
fore her husband's death. Denise,
brought up with unvarying affection,
and well educated for a country girl
of modest pretentious, was, at the
age of five-and-twenty, respectably
married to aM. Caussade, and upon
that occasion the register of birth at
the Foundling Hospital of Marmande
was, pursuant to a judicial decree,
corrected in her favor, and instead of
being described as "born of unknown
parents," she was stated to be the le
gitimate child of M, and Madame Du
four. Thus we find the heroipe of
this little story married and seltled,
and happy in the affections of a re
spectable family, of which she is a
%gal as well as an accepted and cher
istied member. But five years after
her marriage, and in 1862, a domes
tic dervant at Agen, named Denise
Achet, brings an action against M.
Madame Caussade and widow Dufour,
alleging that she, the plaintiff, is re
ally the child deposited by Madame
Dufour in the turning box of Mar
mande, and enveloped in thh remark
able printed muslin ;that the defen
dant, Madame Caussade,- was never
baptized or registered by the name of
Denise Achet, ancl'that she was an
unknown child thrown into the box
about the same time, and registered
in the books of the hospital by the
name of Isabelle Tolland. Extraor
dinary as this claim appears, it was
most conclusively made out by evi
donee. The explanation is that in
the above mentioned village there
were two women, named' Madame
Gaillard, who had, simultaneously re
ceived a child to nurse from the
Foundling Hospital. Maclaine •
four went to 'the - wrong one. The
consequence is that the register
again corrected, and the true' Denise
Achet) the maid aerfaXlC of Ars, is

THE KISSING DEACON.
In one of our New England towns
lived Deacon Brown, a staid, dignifi.
ed sort of a Christian, and model of
propriety. Deacon Brown had the
misfortune to lose his wife, and at
the age of forty found himself with a
family of four small children, without
a mistress to his farm house. As he
could not immediately take another
wife and avoid exciting scandal, and
could not get along without ,some
to take charge of the kitchen and nur
sery, he had recourse to employing
a young woman as housemaid. Nan
cy Sterns was a laughing, romping
beauty, who delighted in experiment
ing upon the Deacon by way of test
ing the strength of human nature.—
Fot a long time the Deacon was in
invulnerable,; but at last, in a me.
meat of unguarded weakness, he was
led. into temptation, and into com
mitting a "slight indiscretion" with
his beautiful housemaid. When in
his wonted coolness and presence of
mind, he was horrified at the enor
mity of his sin. In vain he repented
and grieved over last virtue.
Finally as a last effort for easing
his conscience, at. the conclusion of
the services on the following Sabbath
morning, he arose and requested the
forbearance of the brethren •and sis•

Well, that little child would cry in
the :.night, and'it would he a long
time before 1 could'quiet it ; and last

the child cried so hard that Nancy
arose and Came into the room, and
learned over the bed to hush the
child—and, brothers and sisters, her

"bnt II have been very sorry about it,
and prayed to be forgiven—and I
want you to forgive me and pray for

As the deacon bowed himself upon
his' seat like the mighty oak before
the tornado, Deacon Goodfellow arose
and astonished the audience still
more, ,by saying
"Brothers and sisters, you have
heard what Brother Brown has said,
and now he wants our forgiveness.
For my, part, I think brother Brown
is truly penitent, and I am willing to
forgive him with my whole heart.—
And, brothers and sisters, I will
still add further, that, if 'I had no

Eugene's fatherilliiring his service
with the French army, had selected,
Paris as his home ; and there too re
sided his brother, who left Spain with
the ex-king, Charles IV, and his fam
ily. Among the latter was a, girl of
three years of age (the circumstance
occurred in 1809,) of the name of Ma
rie, who frequently played in the gar
dens of the-Tuileries, under the su
pervision of her nurse. On one occa
sion, a little boy, 'about a year old,
made her a present of a plain gold
ring, and neither of her nurses was
aware of the fact. As the boy was a
stranger andwas not seen again in
no inquiries were made
as to the ownership of the ring, and
the little Spanish countess kept it as
a valuable plaything. This ring was
the betrothal ring ofJosephine, which
little Louis Napoleon, the son of that
Hortense, whom Napoleon loved so
dearly, had taken off his uncle's fin
ger unnoticed. Napoleon soon after
marched of to fight the Austrians,
and the ring was forgotten ; but it
was an evil omen for josephine, who,
a year later, had to make way for a
daughter of the Hapsburg. ' Little
Mary Montijo; felt an inexplicable at

branches of the Guzman family, and
thus became the mother of Eugenie,
who was born on May sth, 1826. It
was another remarkable coincidence
that May 6th was the anniversary of
Napoleon's death—the most sacred
day of the Bonaparte family.
Eugenie's mother had the date,
May sth, engraved on Josephine's
ling, in memory of her daughter's
birth, and afterwards gave it to Tier.
And it is another remarkable circum
stance, that Eugenie, when a child,
visited her relations, the Kirkpatricks
in London, and there Prince :Napole
on, who had just arrived from Malay
as a Carbonaro, formed the acquaint
ance of the little Montijo. He saw
the ring among her ornaments, no
tices the inscription, and the date,
May sth explained to him, and he
now knew that Napoleon's lost ring
was in the possession of the Countess
Eugenie de Montijo. From this day
the young fatalistic heir of Napoleon
I. regarded the little Countess Monti
jo Teba as attached to his house by a
higher inspiration; and this. came to
pass twenty years later.
Engenie r at the time, bad no idea
of all this ; indeed; it was not until a
later date, when the mother learned
the importance of the ring, and the
fatalism which Louis Napoleon' at
tached to it, that the Montijo family
formed their plan. The old, tradi
tional marriage policy ~of the family
made her resolve that Eugenie must
form au alliance with the Bonaparte
so soon as a wish to that effect was
really entertained by the other - side.
For the present, it was merely a ques
tion of marrying a pretender ; but
the pretender might have a future,
and the ambition of the Montijos
might aid in advancing it. This is
the principal reason why so lovely
and rich a girl as Eugenie had attain
ed the age of twenty-six, which is
doubly dangerous for a Spanish wo
man, Aithout being married. She
was chosen to fulfill a "destiny," and
in 1848 the family were doubly ambi
tious to fulfill it, because Napoleon
had in the mean while obtained su
preme power in France. Even be
fore this period the predestined cou
ple had met at watering places, and
calumny bad already begun to adhere
to Eugenie, because it was deemed
impossible that a Spanish girl should
have attained such 'a ripe age without
some gallantry. Hence tempters and
speculators swarmed around her ; but
the fools did net' know Eugenie, who
was a true Montijo; they did not sus
pect why this glorious woman allow
ed the freshness of youth to fade, with
out-accepting one of the offers daily
made to her.
Eugenie attracted Napoleon by her
charms; but not for the sake of being
loved by him, so much as to satisfy
the ambition of the Monti* ; she
promised him her band; but he must
first become a real power in France
—Emperor.' Still she labored zeal
ously in order to attain this object.—
She agitated; gained men, who ad•
mired her, over to the Napoleonic
cause ; and, ander the new mask of
an energetic woman, made all the
preparations for the coup d' etat with
the chief leaders. Qn that December
night when it was carried out, she
sat with Napoleon at the telegraphic
instrument. Hence she worked with
her own hands in restoring the Na
poleonic dynasty, and Napoleon nev
er for a moment overlooked the fact.
In the case of any eventualities, he
appointed her regent ; for he knew
her energy, her sharpsightedness,
her presence of mind, her political
foresight, which were eminently dis
played during the Italian campaign.—

as well as she does Napoleon's inmost
thought, or can judge so well the con
