REMINISCENCES OF LOLA MONTEZ.
A correspondent of the Scotsman, who is evi
dently well informed, furnishes that paper with
the following interesting gossip about the late
Lola Montez, whose erratic career has made
her notorious in all quarters of the globe:
One evening, in the Australian spring of
1855, the Royal Victoria Theatre, in Pitt-street,
Sydney, was crowded to suffocation. The dead
walls of the city had been for some time ablaze
with posters announcing the arrival of Lola
Montez, with a theatrical company from Cali
fornia, and on this night she was to make her
first appearance in a very rose colored dramatic
version of her Munich Adventures, entitled
Lola Montez in Bavaria, and afterward to dis
play her Terpsichorean powers in the Spider
Dance. But though the theatre was full, in
the reputable portions of the house scarce a
woman could be seen. The immaculate wives
and daughters of Sidney were dying with cu
riosity as to the face and figure of their sadly
notorious frail sister, but society had pro
nounced that it 'would not be "the thing" for
them to get to see her, and accordingly they
were obliged to content themselves with the
reports of their husbands, brothers and lovers ;
and these gentlemen waxing eloquent on Lola's
"lamping" eyes, &0., her own sex became more
charitable than ever in their comments on her
A celebrated songstress then singing in Syd
ney, now in England, who witnessed one of the
performances of the celebrated danzeuse, was
muffle obliged to herself up in a thick ;bawl
and vail, and sit back in the darkest recess of
a stage box, through a fear of being recognized
and reported, and consequently losing the fa
vor of her female colonial admirers. On the
night mentioned, when at last I had forced my
way up to the dress circle, (only on the extreme
verge of the passage outside the boxes could
standing room be found,) I saw a Mephistophi
les-like man (Lola's agent) laboriously edging
his slim form through the dense throng and dis
tributing bruised boquets on the sly among his
corps of elaqueures. At that time I " did the
theaters" for the Sydney Horning Herald—the
colonial Times—and, consequently, was a per
son of some importance in the glittering gimlet
eyes of Mephistophiles.
Only waiting to throw his own posy, about as
cumbrous as a Cauliflower, and to lead off the
applause by hammering away with all the might
his pressing neighbors would permit him to use
on the back of a box with a big stick when his
employer " came on," in a blue and white dress
and rouge-blushes, he turned his long, thin,
white, blacked-bearded face toward me, and had
soon installed me in a more comfortable posi
tion in the parquette. As soon, moreover, as
the act-drop fell for the first time, he re-appeared
and led me through a gloomy cavern full of
gas-pipes, beneath the stage " behind." I must
confess that I felt as if I were being counducted
to a lioness' den.
LOLA'S SMOKING PROPENSITIES.
When introduced, however, to Lola—quietly
smoking a cigarette—l found that as long as I
behaved myself I had no reason to dread a
horsewhip. She was notury, but a Bohemian
Grace, with a latent dash of the devil. She
chatted away as if I had known her all my life,
invited me to a 44 conversazione" at her hotel
on the following Sunday, and was in the middle
of a story about her husband, Mr. Heald, when
the manager (sundry messages having, been
disregarded) rushed up to inform her that the
house had been waiting for her for some min
utes—a circumstance which did not appear in
the slightest degree to ruffle her free and easy
tranquility. She played with a good deal of
piquancy, but was evidently a novice in "stage
business." As to the dancing, the least said
of that the better. •
On the following Sunday evening a little
Hindoo boy, in white robe and turban, ushered
me into " Mademe's" drawing-room, in Hart's
Hotel, Church hill. On an ottoman, in a chintz
dressing gown, with a girdle like a bell rope
round his loins, wearing, moreover, a blue tas
seled red fez, and yellow morocco slippers with
turned-up toes, sat a not very sapient artist,
who had taken part in the "Ballarat Insurrec
tion," nursing one of his knees and smoking a
huge hookah. His wife, a once well known
" Bloomer lecturess," a quiet little lady, how
ever, with skirts of orthodox length, a French
danseuse, a recently imported star from North
and South American theatres, large eyed and
long limbed, Lola's "sheep dog"—a Southern
States lady, who loved Lola as much as she
detested that " she Judas," Mrs. Beecher Stowe
—Californian and local actors and actresses,
and a few of my critical confreres, were the
company. All the men were smoking. So
was the hostess—looking much prettier in her
black silk skirt, black velvet jacket, lace habit
shirt and collar, unpainted face, and school
girl cluster of short curls, than when bedizened
for the glare of the foot-lights.
On the sideboard stood a tumbler of cigar
ettes. Two dozen of these Lola smoked be
tween seven On Sunday evening and two on
Monday morning. Bringing the smoke out of
her nostrils and her ears was a trick that she
thought nothing of. One of her fumal feats,
though not very feminine, was very extraor
dinary. She took a long pull at her snowy
paper, opened her mouth, but no smoke could
be seen. She then took a draught of water,
opened her mouth, and out came a cloud of
smoke. This, she informed us, was the Span
ish mode of smoking tobacco, instead of puf
fing out its fumes before they were tasted, in the
absurd English style. On table turning also,
and "spiritualism" generally, she talked in a
comical ex-cathedra tone—half justified by the
freaks which eke and her American friends
made the furniture of the room perform. Taps
certainly wereheard in the middle of telescope
tables in reply to queries, and claw tables pi
roueted on one toe. In animal magnetism,
again, she was a profound believer, and, if the
following story be true, she had good reason to
While living in Paris with Heald, she said,
she had determined to give a grand reception.
A few hours before her guests assembled her
husband chose to take himself off to London.
She was very much annoyed, and consulted one
of her guests, Dumas the elder, as to the best
method of, obtaining revenge for the slight to
which she had been subjectd. He advised her
to send 'for Alexis, the clairvoyant, to keep
him in her house, and from his revelations to
constrict a diary and nocturnal of the pro
ceedings of the truant. She followed the ad
vice. In process of 'time the truant returned,
and, with many excuses for his "unavoidable
absence, on business," presented her with a
hamper of peaches, grapes and pines. "Ah,"
cried Lola, "when you were in Covent Garden
yesterditY, your friend Charlie —, of . the,
Guards, .asked,, 'For whom
. are , you buying
these ?' and you said, 'You know I must bring
a peace-offering to the little &Tn.". "How
the infernal regions do you know. that?"
ejaculated Heald,` conscience stricken .and
aghast. "That!" replied Lola, with supreme
contempt for his ignorance of the extent of her
information; and then she read from her notes
a full, true and particular Alexis-derived ac
count of all her lord's goings-on during the ten
days and nights he had been away. I tell the
tale as it vas told to me.
On all kinds of topics Lola talked with
smartness—of the Jesuits (who, she main
tained, were the bigoted severers of the purely
platonic association which existed between
Ludwig of Bavaria and the Countess of Lands
feldt) not only with smartness but with smart.
Of liberty she proclaimed herself an ardent
devotee, showing, with especial pride, among
the trinkets, nuggets, &c., she received in
America, a portrait of Washington, presented
to her by the firemen of Boston. The Sydney
ladies were very much chagrined by Lola's
general correctness of conduct. Beyond an
apocryphal story that she had blackened the
eye of one of her actors with a champagne
bottle, thrown at him at supper time, and
another, not much more authentic, that she
had threatened to fling a little Hungarian
refugee Count out of a window, no charge,
although sundry squatters were mad as March
hares about her, could be brought aga nst her
during her first stay in Sydney.
A thoroughly Lolesque escapade signalized
her departure from Port Jackson. Her Cali
fornian company proving, with one or two ex
ceptions, a set of muffs, she dismissed them in
Sydney, paying them all their dues. They had
hoped to be taken on to Melbourne, and being
disappointed, determined to do all in their
power to prevent Lola from reaching Po
Philip. Accordingly they trumped up claims
against her, and just as the steamboat in which
she had taken her passage was nearing the Syd
ney Head, the boat of the Sydney bailiff shot
alongside, and the Sydney bailiff hoarded the
packet. In vain was security offered for Lola ;
the obdurate official insisted on carrying her
off. " Very well," cried Lola, " wait a min
ute." She descended to her cabin, undressed
and got into her berth. " Take me now," she
triumphantly exclaimed to the bailiff, who was
fidgeting about the door like a terrier at a rat
hole. One glance into the state-room, in ad
dition to the curses both loud and deep from
her retinue, and the threat of the steamer to
" cut the painter of that there boat if them as
owns it ain't over the side in two two's," con
vinced the legal functionary that he had better
leave Lola unmolested.
Arrived on the "other side," Lola provided
the artists and authors of the Melbourne Punch
with pabulum for cuts and paragraphs for
weeks, and became, as she was in the Califor
nian, a prime favorite in the Victoria diggings.
She returned to the other colony, and, rendered
reckless by the "cold shoulder" which - the
"highly proper" portion of the New South
Welsh gave her, did her worst to deprive her
self of the support of those who were willing to
judge her simply on her artistic merits. For
merely hinting that it was scarcly aesthetic to
mar the effect of an otherwise excellent imper
sonation of Lady Teazle by smoking in the sight
of all the house in the screen scene, I had the
honor of being denounced in an indignant
speech to all the house on the next night, and
was half-promised a horsewhipping.
A proud, petulant little puss was poor Lola.
Happening once to suggnst that it might be
well if she secured the patronage of the Gover
nor of New South Wales, I got for reply, "Gov
ernor !-1 de adviser of King Louis—Governor
—who is your Governor? why in de states I
say to governors, how do, Mr. Governor ?
How is Mrs. Governor, and how are all de
little Governors ?' " On her second visit to
Victoria, Lola, in one of her petulant moods,
furiously horsewhipped Mr. Sekamp, the editor
of the Ballarat Times, who had dared to eiri
cise her unfavorably ; and then came the ti
dings that she had herself been horsewhipped.
The wife of Mephistophiles knocked down poor
Lola, when " out of condition," in the green
room, " larruped" her cruelly with a riding
switch, and afterward was led forward by her
husband, and presented to a crowded diggers'
house the " whipperess of the whipperess of
whippers." Shortly after this disgrace Lola
returned to California; and before she came
up again, defying a Canadian railway guard,
the last we heard of her in Australia was that
the loss of a " friend," who had fallen overboad
(on their return from an English man-of-war,
with whose officers they had been dining) in
the harbor of Honolulu, on their way to San
Francisco, had so affected her mind that she
had abjured for ever the pomps and vanities of
this wicked world.
ROMANCE OF A PLANTER—NFIMT too late to
Ilfend.—A correspondent of a. paper published
at Brookville, Indiana, says, that about fifteen
years ago, a Presbyterian clergymen of New
York had a wayward son. Before he was seven
teen, ha: became so reckless and unruly that
his father could no longer control him. He
left for the city of New York, where he became
a clerk in a drinking saloon, but his character
was too bad to be retained there. He next
was a barkeeper in a theatre, but was dismis
sed. He went lower, and still lower, until he
slept in empty cellars and the wharves of the
city, a perfect nuisance and a disgrace to his
race. At this state of his career, an old college
mate—for our hero was a graduate of one of
the best colleges in the State of New York—
determined that he would hunt him up and
make one more effort to save him. He went to
New York, and after a week of diligent search,
with the aid of the police, he found him. He
washed and clothed him, took him back to the
country; and by every inducement that could
be held out to him, persuaded him to try and
be a man. He made the effort and was suc
The friend who sought him out, and who
saved him, we are well acquainted with. They
both determined to come to Tennessee to teach
school. They soon reached here, and with the
high recommendations they brought., soon ob
tained good places. The reclaimed son of the
Presbyterian clergymen, within six months
after his arrival, married an orphan girl worth
$40,000 in. cash. She bad a younger sister and
a brother, who each had equal amounts. The
sister soon afterward died, leaving one-half of
her estate to our hero and his wife, and the
other half to her brother, thus increasing his
estate to $60,000. When the
. Mexican war
broke out, the brother enlisted, and made a
will leaving all his estate to his brother-in-law
(our hero) and his wife, in case he never re
turned from the war. He, like many other of
our noble youths, was killed at Buena Vista.
Thus our hero came into possession of the en
tire. estate of the family, which, .at first, was
$120,000. He is now one of the richest plan
ters of Middle Tennessee, and does not live
twenty-five miles from Nashville.
We may add, that another clergyman of New
York had a sou, who commenced a somewhat
similar career about fifteen years ago, and is
now reaping the reward of his folly in a poor
log-cabin on an Illinois prairie. In fact, cler

THE EFFECTS OF TEA. — The effect of the use
of tea has been much discussed. Professor
Johnston% a good authority, has asserted that
it prevents the waste of the body, and nourishes
it. Dr. Smith, recently, in a lecture before

good only in helping our digestion .of fat or
farinaceous food, and thus far was nourishing;
but if the tissues are wasted by exertion or too
profuse perspiration, tea is injurious. It does
not suit a spare habit, or much exertion, or
low temperatures, or a defective - skin. These
opinions are not generally held.
