With slow and trembling step,
Into the crowded room.
Comes the gentle, fair-haired bride,
And the handsome stalwart groom.
Pale is her lovely face.
Bright are the love-lit eyes,
And the red lips parted now
The rose's bloom defies.
With a happy faith and trust.
In the dear one at her side,
She leans on his strong arm
With a thrill of joy and pride ;
There, 'mid friends and parents,
Just as the day is dune,
The solemn words are spoken
That biud two hearts in one.
May the path (heir young foet tread
Be ever smooth and fair, '
The roses round it strewn
No thorn of trouble bear;
Their fond hopes ne'er be blighted,
But ever bright and true.
With golden sunbeams shining
A happy lifetime through.

11 or, gtves a most graphic and
interesting accouul ot the great plot to
rob the Shah of his jewels, to which
hricf reference lias been heretofore made
in our columns. The story is too long
to tell iu detail hut some idea of the
bolduess of conception and consummate
ck ill with which it whs carried almost to
success, maj he gathered from the ful
lowing epitome :
".As soon as it was definitely fettled
that the Shah would visit England mea
eures were instituted to
PROTECT HIM FROM ROBBBSY.
Col. Henderson chief Commissioner ol
Police guaranteed lo insure the Eastern
Monaich against beirg plundered Lv
mobs, rushes of the crowd, by high
waymen, or; in any public maimer this
being the chief dungcr, it was supposed,
owing to the narrow and crowded streets
through which the Monarch would have
to pass so frequently, both by night and
by day. A detail of police was arraug
ed for Buckingham Palace, aud the Home
Secretary promised that these premises
should have additional securities ordered
for thera, aud that the jewel-safe of the
Shah in particular should he made burglar-proof
after the newest and moat ap
proved patterns la addition to all this
a detachment of London detectives was
to join the Shah nt Moscow, and remain
part of his suite tbenceforwatd uutil he
finally left our shores. This detachment
consisted of two Inspectors and fivo Ser
geants. Ou reaching our shores they
ere to be reinforced by another Inspec
tor, three Sergeants aud ten men, the
very elite of the force. It was thought
that, these arrangements carried ont, it
would be impossible to steal the Shah's
treasure eo loug as he waa the guest of
Iler Majesty. - . ,
"THE ROBBERS PLANNING.
But the best laid schemes of mice and
men gang aft aglee. Within twenty-four
hours after the detectives left London for
Moscow another party left the same city
for the sams objective point, and with the
express intention of concerting means for
effectually plundering the mighty Sbah
in Shah of all his priceless jewelry. This
party consisted of three remarkable nfen,
criminals of the first water, yet who
were totally unknown lo the London
police, and indeed, though often com
promised, had never been -convicted of
any felony. They were Col Algernon
B'gnor Hawkins, the leader of the party
and organitjerof the conspiracy ; Serafino
(this other name is not known), a Jew
diamond broker of Marseilles, but foim
etly of Salo'nice," and 'Baron' Narses
Migrad itch Dadian, formerly a "sreaff"
or money-lender of Aleppo, but late of
London and Paris, an Eutychian Arme
nian, and said to be conuected with the
eminent Ogion Dadian family which so
long baa managed the finances of the
HAWKINS LEADER OF TUB OANO
Hawkins is an adventurer of rather a
heroic stamp, and is said to be of good
family. lie is a man of nearly fifty
years of age, and of very commanding
appearance and fascinating manners
Originally he was a Lieutenant in a walk
ing regiment"and went to India, where
dissipation and a difficulty about cards
compelled him to sell out. lie drifted
about in the East, seeing life" and pick
ing np adventures for some yearB. He
was for a while in the service of the Em
peror of China, he was in A nstralia, he
was iu Sonth America and Mexico. He
certainly serred twice under Garibaldi,
was for a time in service in the American ',
civil war but on which side I am not
able to say, took part in the last Polish
revolution, and in the Franco Prussian'
war, iu which he was Lieutenant Culonel
on Minot'.o's staff. His latest ostensible
occupation baa been that of a stock-job
ber in thu c ty, where some of his opera
tions iu Sonth American securities have
been notably successful ; but it is gener
ally thought his chief business latterly
has been in connection with the shipment
of arms aud supplies to the Carlists,
whose cause he ia known to "bull." lie
is not a member of any of the commit
tees hero, but is generally thought tu be
deep in their councils, aud privy to most
of their clandestine traffic with the Bis
cay an provinces. Hawkins ia a man of
great daring, remarkable address, and
consummate effroutery. He is never
without money for any of his occasions,
speaka tiiue or ten languages, aud poss
eases a large fund of practical informa
tion. Of his
POWERS OF FASCINATION.
and command of impudeuce I can give
yon the best idea w'ueu I tell you that
not very long tgo a fond aud wealthy
toy merchant of Birmiug-hnm paid him
tf 10,000 to discoutiaus his attentions to
the merchant's wile, a blooming hut fool
ish young woman, who waa ready to
el-jpc with him whenever he said the
word, lie sent a receipt to the merchant
and a duplicate to the poor woman,' 'with
a uote saving that he was a inau whose
word was his bond, and he would never
aec her again, having sold his promise to
Hawkins Lad a schedule of the Shah's
jewels gathered from observation during
travels in Persia. A memorandum kiiowu
to ho iu his hand cstimttfs that, wkhout
running any risks by offering for sale the
more conspicuous pearL, diamonds, e:n
eraMs, aud rubt', jewels to the valuo xii
2,000,000 could be mido at once avail-
able for the Amsterdam maik.?t.
THE OTHER THREE.
I The second man waa a Jew Serafino
t chosen chiefly because of his knowl
edge of jewels and Lis quiek way of dis
posing of them. The third man was
Toby Spring, a first clias burglar and
s,fe blower. The last of the. conspira
tors N'arsrs M:giaditch Dadian was
taken into the plot because it waa essen
tial to have a man perfectly acqttaiued i
with the I'ersi-tn lang'iuga and with j
Persian cu-toms. Xarsea, in his way. i
was quite as remarkable a character as
Hawkins, and a man of experience as
varied. A member of the great Dadian
family, hi had bteu a wealthy seraff of
Aleppo, had represented the family in
Ispahan and Teheran for a number of
years, and bad trailed nil over the world,
rrom Boston to Hong Kong. He knew
Persia perfectly, knew the Persian' char
acter, and, more than all knew the
WEAK POINTS IN NASR ID-UEKN'S
character, lie waa a most accomplished
most subtle, and most unprincipled Ori
ental, and, but for a single circumstance,
might have been one of tha wealthiest
and most influntial men in the East. He
waa a slave and a victim to the habit of
smoking opium, aud this had ruined
him, broken up his bitMuess, banished
him from home, aud plunged him into the
misery and foiiornnesa of a London gar
rett, where he eked out a wretched sub
sistence by translating for scholars and
merchants, and by other odd jibs among
those who were willing to overlook his
propensities for the sake of employing
his rare and unuaual taleuts. He was
picked out of au opium cellar aud" prov
ed eager to engage in, the adveutnre.
The matter was talked over and the plan
arranged to have the robbery committed
in London, but to join the Shah's retinue
immediately, to gain all possible fore
knowledge to aid them.
The three conspirators, Hawkins,
Seranuo aud Narses, are next seen at St.
Petersburg, where Narses renews au ac
qnaiutauce witli one Ferjumendi, - a ser
vant of one of jhe Shall 's suite, and from
this securcS a position as interpreter.
Narses thus established, busied himself
in finding out all the secrets of the Shah's
establishment. Hawkins and Serafino
only staid long enough to get photographs
of the Shah, and then Serafino went to
Paris to get imitations of the gems made
from patterns enlarged by the microscope
while Hawkins hastened to London, ren
ted a handsomely furnished house in the
neighborhood of Portman Square, hired
a retinue of fluukeys, and gave himself
AN AMERICAN NABOB
who had come to spend a few weeks in
the great city, aud especially to give
some recreation to his daughter, just
finishing her education at a fashionable
place on the Loire. In due time the
brougham went to Easton Square Station
and brought home mademoiselle and ber
piles of luggage. Mademoiselle was a
very lovely blonde, with tbe manners of
ingenue, and dotingjy fond of her darl-.
ing papa. An amiable gonvernate was
secured for her, and the domestic affairs
of tbe household went on swimmingly.
Hawkins went around his business as
usual and everything was prosperous. .
The night succeeding the Shah's arri
val at Buckingham Palace Narses Dadian
met his associates for the first time since;
they had parted at Petersburg. He was

no longer, in the service of the Mirza'
Dschamy. hut had become guide and in
terpreter to the ihigh and mighty Gen.
Ilanji Dscbellalleddia, whilom Governor
of Murghab, and now one of -tka Shah-in-Shah's
favorite aides-de-camp. In
this position ho had frequent opportuni
ties of seeing the persons
IN AND AROUND THE MONARCH.
and of hearing pretty much all that had
transpired about the court. lie had al
ready inspected Buckingham Palace, and
having the general entre knew a great
deal about it. It would be difficult to
commit a burglary at the Palace, but not
impossible, if no other means for getting
at the jewels could be found out. The
Shah iu general was very inaccessible ;
his attendants were very numerous and
very jealous ; besides them was a largo
force of London detectives, and in addi
tion to these a corps of private police
employed by M. de Reuler.
Hawkins now said that ho only con
templated burglary of the palace as a
dernier resort. He had calculated rather
to practice upon the Shah 'a superstitious
or his fears, so as to inveigle him off and
in effect kidnap him. To get off safely
with the jewels one would need at least
twelve hour's start. Narses said that,
had he knowu what he now kucw, this
scheme would have,becn perfectly prac
ticable at St. Petersburg. The Shah,
however, felt safe iu England and Lis
fears could not be worked upon. There
waa only one way then to reach him.
He wa a mm of luxurious life aud pro
clivities, he hud 6ent his harem home, he
was peculiarly suscrptiblo lo tho influen
ces of beauty, of Western beauty in
particular, aud it was notorious among
Lid oGictri that he expected to achieve a
good many bocue3 fortunes among
ti:k lovely ladies of London.
Here, then, if the right sort of plan could
bo oweoeted, the Shah would beat their
tiurcy. In a scheme of this sort Narses
sr.ii he himself wonld easily bo master
of Urn situation, fines there was the
greatest amount of jealousy among the
high officers who eurrouuded tho Shah,
aud he knew that his own inime liate em
ployer, Gea. Hadji Dscheilalleddin would
give his right arm almost for the chance
of providing his master with a new con
cubine whom he could influence, and
wilb whom the Shah-iu-Shah might be
conto infatuated. ' -----
After a long conference it was decided
to try this plan. Narses was introduced
to Mademmoistlle, and declared her to be
the very person needed. Photographs in
the highest style of the art were taken,
aud the next evening, at 7, Ilia Highness
Hadji Pschellalleddin took diuner with
Col. Algernon Bignor Uawkius, at Lis
house iu Pot tmau Square. The cham
pagne circulated freely, and Ilia Highness
full of admiration for the
RARE BKAt'TY OF .M ADEMOISELLB
became effusively gallant. But madem
oiselle was demure, and played her role
of ingenue to perfection. When the
Burgundy cmie on ehe escnped from the
dining-room, and then Hawkins began
to play his cards. He told the General
that mademoiselle was not for him, tut,
under certain circumstances, she might
do for his master. Ho, Hawkins, wanted
to rue in the world, and he did not object
to his daughter becoming the morganatic
wife of a gre.it Mohammedan potentate.
Why might not Uawkius become a Per
sian Geuerul, and Hadji Dscbeilalleddiu
Grand Vizier ? The bait took.
A day passed and then Hawkins re
ceived an intimation through Gen. Dsch
elaleddin and his emissary Narses, that
if, on the Shah's return from Windsor,
the young lady .would occupy a certain
wiudow .in the neighborhood of the
Windsor Station, she would be sure to
come within ' the
glance of the Shah'sJ
eye, and she would afterwards learn
whether or not he was favorably impress
ed. The appointment waa kept, and all
turned out as was promised. The lovely
ingenue's soft eyes fell before the search
ing, saucy glauceof the King of Kings,
but this did not happen before she bad
tossed into the imperial coach a single
flower, a tea-rose just opening, around
the stem of which was written one word
in the most elegaut cursive Persian text.
That word waa ,-I love." That night
General Hadji Dschelialleddin, High and
Mighty Go between, brought to the bouse
in Portman square an, ornate gold casket
containing a costly imitation of a rose iu
enamel and diamonds, with leaves of
small emeralds elaborately Wrought
Underneath this costly flower was a brief
line in Persian text, npon pink satin.
BXtfLTATION "THE GAME IS WON."
Called to interpret. Narses, with ex
nultation exclaimed : 'TTie game is won !
It is an appointment for to morrow night
at 13 o'clock." This the Persian eon
firmed : said his master was profoundly
impressed with Mademoisells's beanty,
and would come in disguise, attended only
by himself. Thereoy be departod,
after making a profouud salaam to Made
moiselle, who looked '. almost frightened
at the idea of an interview with "the
mighty 'Asiatic potentate.' Hawkins,
greatly excited, went in search of Serafi
no, to arrange the final programme for
the great robbery. ' "
AUGUST 6, 1573.
So near the prize ! Narses was npset ;
be pleaded an engagement, broke fr om
his 'pals' and sought a low opium haunt.
He came out drunk, and staggered to the
rendezvous on Bond street The police
man watched him attracted by his Per
sian uniform. Narses found Hawkins'
office and rapped madly at the door.
Fiually it was opened. Toby Spring
appeared, and thinking him drunk on the
eve of a great attempt, seized him rough
ly by the throat, dragged Lim into the
office and locked the door. This was
not done so quickly but that the Inspec
tor recognized Spring's face.
The place waa surrounded, broken into
and Toby Spring arrested. Hawkins
and Serafino came op at that uistxut
The Jew was grabbed ; Hawkins escap
ed ; Narses started on a run, and half
delirious, with the police at his heels,
made straight for the river, took the par
apet of the embankment at a bound, and
plungcd into the dark depths with a wild
cry. V hen bis body waa recovered

Naturalists suppose this fossil to be
tho product of a species of fir or pine
tree, which baa long since become ex
tinct. Its appearauce ia not unlike that
of tbe ordinary resins, aud the cones and
leaves aa well as infects are sometimes
discovered enveloped by it. The elec
tric properties of amber were recognized
by the ancienta at a'i eaily day, aud by
the ancients the substance was styled
ehklrott, from which originated tho term
electricity. It ia of a bright gold color,
very fragile in its nature, and produces
no decided sensation on the organs of
taste. It? (-p-cinc gravity is somewhat
greater than that of water. - Its constit
uent elements have never been accurately
determined, though analyzers agree that
resin aud an acid peculiar to itself, with a
volatile oil, enter into its composition, as
also somo compounds of hydrogen and
carboir. If treated with alkalies in
which no foreign substance ia present, it
can be readily decomposed.
Amber is very extensively used by
manufacturers of tobacco pipes for mouth
pieces, and, in consequence of ita scarcity
and great vulue, has been the subject of
numerous counterfeits. Honey stone and
copal resin, which presents a very close
resemblance tt it, are employed more fre
quently than any other substances iu im

deception can be detected without diffi
culty by subjecting them to au ordeal of
Gre. The experiment will demonstrate
that the honey stone cannot be liquified,
while the copal resins runs off in a stream
of globules, the amber burns away with
a sparkling and flickering flame.
Amber ia generally obtained m smalt

quantities are procured from Northeastern
Prussia on the coast of the Baltic, from
which it is washed out, especially after
a severe storm When violently agitated
by storms, the waves force away the
amber from the beds in which it ia de
posited, and it ia borne to the surface by
the sea weeds which are torn np at the
same time, and when the waters become
trauquil the pieces of amber float to the
shore, where they are speedily secured.
But it is -only the smaller aud lighter
fragments that are thus obtained. The
large and Leavy pieces, as the storm
abates, sink again, and occupy crevices
in the large rocks which cover the bottom
of the sea at this point. These are se
cured when the water becomes smooth
and clear, by disengaging them from the
boulders by means of hooks, and dex
trausly introducing a net beneath them.

A LITTLE history is related, and said
to have been told by King Victor Eman
uel himself The Princess Maria, daugh
ter of the Empress of Russia, waa ia the
dress circle at the Apollo" Theatre. Hia
Ije?ty Lad not been forewarned, and
was in his box, according to hia usual
custom, iu the most common neglige. Aa
soon aa he saw her Imperial Highness,
he begged the prefect, Commandant Gad
da, to lend his black drees coat and
white cravat for a few asinutes. Of
course the request was complied with,
and his Majesty having pnt them on in
one of the saloons, went and paid his
respects to the Princess. This story is
not quite so good as the one told by the
Emperor Napoleon. He met Vivicr, the
horn player, at Tichy, and asked him to
dinner. Vivier excused himself he was
traveling, and had no dress clothes. "We
are nearly of the same size," said tbe
Emperor. "Ask my valet, Leon, to lend
you some of my evening clothes." After
dinner the Emperor complimented Vivier
on the excellent fit, adding : " Mind yon
restore my property." Vivier replied
that his hones: intentions stopped with
the restitution of the clothes, and could
uo further go. He could not bring him
self to restore the little red ribbon in the
button hole. ''Keep it," said the Em
peror, and Vivier was gazetted a knight
of tbe Legion of Honor next morning.

A man's wealth is often estimated in
Vienna by the number of mistresses he
keeps, and the magnificence ' of lueir
equipage, diamonds, and dresses. .Thtrn
is no city in the world, not even Pat is,
that can rival Vienna, the metropolis of
Austria iu sensuality and immorality,
and iu these respects there is a univer
sality that is quite remarkable. There
are no flaunting courtezans in Vienna, a
are to be seen in the streets of Paris, of
even in New York or Baltimore. Whero
virtue is sutch a rarity there is no op
portunity for making a specially of vice,
aud it has no rpecij.l locality. In this?
respect Vienna would appear to the cas
ual visitor more free from this species of
social evil than ary laige City; in thcr
world; but a visit to the Foundling Hos
pital, where there is au average of about
fourty infanta receivrd daily, or the gen
eral bospital, where ita ill'gititr.ate birth
average thirty a day, shews the pre inf
ineuce of Vienna over all other cities iu
the world. There are 1.0.CC0 soldiers'
alwars in the city, mostly jourg men
from the provinces, who ctild not mar-'
ry if they would, aud would not if they
could. They have rio means to support
a wife, and Ft Mom have mny sufficient
to pay the church charges fir the per
formance of the marriage Jcereraony.
They can be seen in crowds with tho
y eufig gills eu the Itingstrasse, and the
Prater. They form attachments, but are
never expected to mtrry. Their exam
ple is followed by the young men in?
ether walks of life, and I am assured
there are fewer marriages in Vienna thaw
almost any other city of one third the
population. There seems to be no at
tempt made by the authorities or by the
Church to remedy this evil, which has
become so universal that among the
laboring clauses especially thero are
few mothers who have husbands.
I have made special efT.rt to obtain
authentic information aa to the causes
which are leading to this extensive de
morilizttioiv. That there are many
good and virtuous people here there is
no manner of doubt; but that the next
generation will greatly deteriorate is
equally certain. Ten yeara ago it was
regarded as somewhat degrading ttv the
female to live without marriage. Now no1
woman is considered as having lowered
herself much in the esteem of her neigh
bors unless she Lecnmts a brszen courte
san. Of this class it is but proper to
say that Vienna, with its million popu
lation, Las fewer than the smallest of tbe
principal cities of the United States-.
There are, however, n'Ore people live
ing together without marriage, than with
marriage, aud of this kind of life, with
the privelege of eeperating at' pleasure,
which often takes place at the birth of
the first child, it is sad to say becoming
daily more popular.
1 he laws legulatirg marriage are, I
have ascertained, different from those of
any ether country, or nation The Church
is forbidden to marry any man or wo--man
without the consent of their parents.
The persons proposing marriage must
also have the written consent of the
Burgomaster And authorities of the place
of their nativity, which will not be given
unless they can prove that tbvy havj
means' etillieiettt to snj port a ftn.i'y, aiuf
will iint become a charge uprn the com
munity. Dining ihe three yews which
every able bodied ma:i ia rrrpired ,y
serve in the army, he is not permitted1 (t
marry without he has alto the consent of
the Secretary of War, or the Genrrnl
under whose command Le ia serving.
Some of these laws can be evaded ny
going to some other section of the count
ry, but ihe bars to marriage are so great
and difficult to be overc.'nu that they
generally prefer to do without the cert
mony, and start off iir life. ''it as sy
many of thrir neighbors and fiientla ili !
before them There is a recent Xrw which1
ia iuteuded to protect the fersale in these
kflhaiided marli.igea. If she ascertains
thather" man,'' by whom she baa chil
dren, is about to contract marrage, she
can enter protest and put a stop to ihe
ceremony. It does not, however, pre
vent him from abandoning the mother of
Lis children ami familiarly taking up
with new love, j'irt as he in days long
past took up with her. Tbe novels dai
ly recognize this new phrase of life, and1
the most popular are thore which repre
sent their heroes and heroines as falling
in love with and eloping with huebarttt
and wives. Mati'mrony is entirely igno
red in most of them. The mariiage cer
emony is daily growing more onpopufor
and bids fair soon to become, in Vienna
at least, to Le regarded aa one of tlm
follies of a past generation.
