Let me tell yon sutnelaing about one of
the school teachers ef 811 Francisco, by
way of illustrating tbe manner In which
fortune frolics with human nature and
makes shuttlecocks of poor humanity.
Anion the tnuchers is an elderly lady
the mother of live interesting children.
She was born in one of the Western
States, and was the first-born ol one of the
most diatinguis!id Senators who ever sat
in legislative balls of the United States
oae who for mure than thirty years repre
sented one of tbe great States of the mighty
West, and wbo was the peer or Clay, tal
boun and Webster. In ber yonng days she
was tbe belle ot Washington city, carrying
away the pnlm from tbe dark-eyed daugh
ters of tlio South, and the rosy-cheeked
damsels of the North.
All were anxious to receive a smile from
the fair lilly of tbe west. Noble men rep
resenting tbeir country at Washington laid
their eornels at ber feet in vain. She
was a true republican; and gave ber love to
a young gentleman then a eleik in one of
tho offices at Washington. Her father
kucw the youth and recognized bis great
abilities, and when he solicited his daugh
ter's hand it was cheerfully given. Tho
wedding was a brilliant one, 'many of tbe
great men of tbe country being present to
wish them joy and cheer them at the com
mencement of their domestic vnugc.
The young husband was shortly after-
wards admitted to the bur ol the. Lnlteil
States Supreme Court, and was soon recog
nized ns one of the most promisinirmember.
For a number of years he practiced bis pro
fusion with success, and was oil the high
road to wealth and fame.
Tben came an event In the hia'orv.

those who determined upon going to Cali
fornia was tl'e young husti.iiid. He con
sulted his wife, and sue, like a true woman,
declared lor intention to accompany him.
He showed ber the hardships that she must
necewnrl'y en lure, ant ur ciul ' hi-r to re
mit n w.tu her parents until h had a home

mortgage hi property. Six vears parted
awny. and he riled, leaving bis widow with
live children without a dollar, fur his credi
tors foreclosed oven to the homestead.
Tho noble woman immediately look sew
ing to earn ber living but found that she
could hardly keep soul 11 nil body together
by Ibis means.
Some friends of ber father and bushand
offered to assist ber, but she would receive
nothing so long as she could support her
self. Sbo, however, would be thankful lor
assistaace in procuring ber a position as
teacher in one of the public schools. Ap
plication was made, and would you ' be

cared not -that ber father was the peer of

wore t e straps id a Major General. . They
knew ber bushand in his lilelime, and had
felt the lah ol hisjliitier tongue, and there
fore desired to bar n bis widow. -
Tbeir efforts were unavailing, however.
Sbe was appointed and is now engaged in
the public school department of this city,
teaching a primary cleti. A sad change 'ia
the fortunes of one wbo started iifo with
such brilliant pinsi ecta. Sbe is a -true and
noble woman, however, and every ono who
reads this paragraph will praise her for her
heroism and devotion.

tully justified tbe expectations of the large
audience whieli greeted her first appearance
