This, then, was that charming woman,
the wife of the famous violinist or Due
Charles of Wiirtenberg, and theidol of
Stuttgart until 1767.
In the full bloom of her rare loveli
ness, she was flattered wherever she
went, and the aristocracy._ then so
eluSive; treated her almost as their
equal, overwhelming her with kindness.
Her grace,, refinement, and di • .ified
manners, made het. the orna e. of
every saloon. Her clear sopran a voice,
soft and full, charmed her bearers, and
nothing afforded more pleasure than to
listen to her in Tonelli's operis, as
brought out on the -Stuttgart stage,
which was then in its highest perfec
From 1748, this famous composer
directed the orchestra, for a yearly sala
ry of ten thousand florins, and, with an
excellent troupe and Celebrated orches
tra, be careftilly brought ont his own
Operas. Duke Charles bad heard
Tornelli's "Paso Mario," and after
wards raved of the composer of the be
witching-air, "Sposo e vado di morir,"
wishing for nothrug'more than to attract
to his presence this celebrated Italian.
He soon succeeded in his desire, as life,
at Rome had been made intolerable . to
NicoliTonelli by the suddea and violent
death of his young rival, the highly
gifted Portuguese, Terradellas. He,
therefore, accepted the call to Germany;
where the famous violinists, Lolli and
Nardini, had already settled. .
The composer of "Case Mario" was ,
enraptured with; the orchestra at the
German court, and still 'more with the
fait Marianne. Opera after opera was
enthusiastically composed for the lovely
singer, and the number .of these at
Stuttgart is said to be twenty three; but
the ease with which Marianne acquired
these beautiful and often difficult parts
heightened ' his admiration for her.
From all parts, friends andicrities were
attached to the Scuttgatt opera. To:
nelli's music, and - Lolli and Nardini.
For Marianne, Tonelli wrote his "Olym
piade," his "Repaiitore." and the
"Didona Abandonata;" and the nice
ness of her discrimivation, the passion
of her acting, only incited him to new
creations, that they might be thus perf
feetiy rendered by this charming wo r
man. Iu each new part she wasgreetr
ed with loud applause. The court did
not miss one represeutation, and, even
from other portions of Europe, admi

—Ellen Hulelanson
With especial courtesy, the duchess
had approached the singer, and:the tie
of true friendship united the two wo
Often, Marianne passed 'whole even
ings in familiar intercourse alone with
her. Sometimes also the duke came,
and often they sent for Lolli, Nardini,
Picker, and Tonehi, and, in this infor
mal circle, enjoyed music till late in the
night, when they' sellom separated
without listening to the favorite air of
the princely couple. This pleiiisant
friendship with the court excited bitter
envy in certain circles, and this feeling
was doubtless the cause of the subtle!,
quent fall of the singer; but, 'thus far,
all secret attempts to injure her - had
proved of no avail. '
`When the BMB-couple went to
Vienna, the duchess so warmly recom
- mended her favorite to the empreee,
that she was received with the most
ifracions kindness, and feted as no one
bad ever been before. The memory of
her career In "the ,liinpcnial 014 4 formed
the most cherished recollections of her
life; though afterward , these trinmphii
were only repeated in England.
- When 'Marianne returned to Stutt
gart,' Tonelli arranged n grand concert,
at which she appeared with her husband
and Loul and Nardini.
The whole , town was in an excite
ment, and all hastenedto greet Hitt long
missed favorites:.
Brightly the moon shone i mid the
soft-gleaming starlight on that, summer
evening, when a court-carriage arrived
to convey the prima donna to the ?tiers
house. , Quikly the horses sped, while,
buriediu the soft cushions, she dreamed
only of new triumphs—but, hark !—a
cry souudedthe'earriage stops, and
the beautiful ' powdered head bent , far
out of the window. What had happen
ed ?. Oh, nothing important. A care
leis wbmai had crossed the streets and
Peoplo had already lifted her,
and carried , her into the little house, -
which she pointed out as her home.
This was the answer of the footman.
Deep indignation, indignation clouded
the beautiful Lice. .
"I wish to alight." she said.
Impossible,"' decided the :servant,
Who was deVoted , to her. "We have not
a moment to lose; their highnesses wih
be in their , box in , ten minutes.",
"Open the catriage•door, I tell you!
A poor creature-. is. dying, :perhaps
through my fault. I assume the res
ponsibility of being late, even; before
the emperors and kings of the whole
earth !" •
- She spoke anthoritatively as a queen,
and, the next instant, was in the street,
in the small house, and in the narrow
room where the poor woman had been
carried. Like, the good fairy in dill;
dren's stories, this beautiful being up-.
peered in these miserable surroundings.
All fell back before her, the room was
emptied of the curled's, and Marianne
saw herself in the presence Of a sick
man, reclining in an arm-chair, mid, it
his feet, knelt the rescued woman. She
had escaiied unhurt, but her face was
deadly tale from terror. -
"It is nothing," she said, to the
bright creature; do not niake him anx
ious; I have not hurt myself.",
—Alice' car!,
A little basket was On the &at, from
which had,fallen a bouquet of artificial
flowers. Involuntarily Marianne stooP
edto take it up. Then she put her soft
hand on the shoulder .of the kneeling
woman, and asked if..a I physician had
been called.
I do not need a physician;
.1 um well,
and be will soon be well, too," she re
plied, and the light of love audiender
peas beamed from: her dark eyes, and
brightened the sick man- in the arm
But Marianne did not leave till, with
uit *ha sweetness and fascination pecu
liar to her, she elicited the little becret
from the woman.
Only a part of the every-day misery
of all agel; sickness and poverty', hope
and disappointment. An invalid musi
cian and a faithful wife who made, with
great skill and patience, beautiful flow
ers of.straw, , and 'sold . them for a low
price: The bouquet which Marianne
hold,in her hand, and regarded with so
much admiration, was !the one unsold
to day.
• "Will you sell 'me this ?" she asked.
"Please tell tale' the price."
”..loa are the famous singer," an
swered the woman, after a slight hesita
tion; know you well, for I have of
ten seen you pass in your carriage.
People have fold me how good you ate,
and I will sell" Ion that bouquet for one
single song, if you will sing it to my
sick husband."
The figure glided through the room,
the train of her long satin robe swept
the floor, and the servant saw sith ter
ror that Maiianne opened the covers of
the spinet witli her own hinds.
Standing with her head turnet toward
the young couple, and, recalling one of
Cnipar Netsoher's famous pictures, she
sang, 'more exquisitely than evei, the
song, "5p0.40 e vado di morir.)'
When she ceased. she heard a sound
--silvcr:clear lind joyous -a sound - which
cannot be likened 'to anything in the
world—the sweetest, loveliest music in
the whole creation—the happy tones of
a child's Voice. A small. delicate hand
had pulled aside the .courtains of the
cradle, which stood unnoticed in a cor

into the cradle; and with. passionate
kiss as ? covered the child's hands now
stretched out toward her.
= "Let me have your bouquet, and al
linvime to help you take care of your
boy,." she said, with deep feeling.
"Oh. how sweet it must be- to educate
tied care for a child !"
And tears, brighter than the diamonds
sparkling on her white dress, shone in
the eyes of the beautiful woman, as she
said farewell.
Their highnesses received Marianne
'lithe greatest favor, though she was
`Mote than half an hour late, and the
duchess, who had, been most impatient,
embraced her darling before , every one.

One morning a strange messenger
brought a small box to the Hohertasperg,
and asked 'to be allowed to place it in
the room of the poor "nightingale,"
with the last love of a dying woman.
When it was opened, only a bouquet
of'straw , flowers was found, so the jailer
granted the request, and his wife placed
the gift in Marianne's bands. - •
Long did the beautiful eyes gaze on
the simple leaves and blossoms—a dead

face—but the eyes softened, the bosom
heav ‘ ed—the cloud-veil of sadness was
rent asunder aAsweet child face appear

room rose as a bright picture fromthe
deep darkness, of oblivion.

1 hurtling tears sobs and trembling, ,
i broke firth ` from her quivering lips Ow
the sweet lost music, "Sposo r rwlr, di

Her mind had at last cast off its fet
ters, and from that time the night
ingale tried to work, attempting tolmi
tate the graceful flowers that had come
.like an angel's greeting ,to her heart.
At her request - different kinds of straw
were willingly furnished, and after many
efforts she learned to arrange the
flowers, which so tar excelled those of
her model, that from the' simplest ,ma-,
terials came miracles of poetry and art.
'One day a bouquet from liohenas

duke, with a greeting from the night

flowers, and this 'work was now her
f ivorite 'occupation. The fame of her
bouquets and wreaths, spread over
Europe,- and even the Empress of Aus

them of her.
She rarely received, visitors--she, so
petted and caressed—and still .more sel
dom left her asylum, but the children
and birds knew and, loved her. .One
evening at twilight the ;neighbors
thought that they saw two slenner
young men knock at the do'orr of the

touched with her beautiful hand the

playfully said:
- "Yon liked that song, even wheii in
the cradle, Andrdrea:s StreiCher !"
"And I liked it so well, that only for
its sake have I become - n musician," . was
the reply; ,"and who knows but that

Suddenly an idea struck Gilligan; be

chored near some stagnant piibl where
a trout would never think of going, and
thus „keep him away from the good

Gilligan hated to see a man fish with
such poor tackle, and offered him some
sneli hooks and gut leaders, but the old
fellow said he would be sure to bust 'em
and he would-rather use,the old tackle he
was use to. ,He tied a 3 nail to the line

An old felloW, whose daughter had
failed to secure a position as teacher, in
consequence of not passing an examine
tion. said: 'They asked her lots o
things she did not know. Look at the
history questions!, They asked her
about things that happened before she
was born! How was she going to know
about them? Why, they asked her
about old George Washington and other
- men - she never knell That was a pretty
sort of examination!'

A procession of men passed through
Main street this morning, and 'were an
hour and. 'a lialf passing a given point.
The given point was a saloon.
'Ma,' remarked a New Haven ,belle
yesterday, 'do you know what has be.
come of that old trunk lid of grandma's?
It would make a beautiful hat for the
theatre with a few. testers on it.'

A widow's teighi: A New Jersey wid
ow could not earn six dollars a week at
the wash-tub. -She became a crairioy

It just shows that a man begrudges the
quarter he pays for washing his shirt,
whileliie will cheerfully give a dollar to
stick his nose into the other world be

What do they' mean by that? I'm sure
I never thanked them for coming,'

A ELWIN PISEJrDICE. -Why it is that
the public don't look kindly upon a man
carrying an umbrella on a hot day is a
raystery yet to be solved, but the fact
is they do not, and that not one man in
a hundred has the moral courage to
carry one.l Yesterday, when an emi
nent and dignified citizen coming back
from his dinner turned 'into Griswold
street with an umbrella_over' his head,
he was accosted with: "Been raining
down your way?"No, sir." Going,
tor 'No, sir.' 'Then •yoa Garry the
unbrella to keep the Ale's off?" Yes,
sir.' 'Well is a good-plan, and all
soft 'men ought to practice it.' The
next man hid a grin on his face as he
called out: 'What's that fop?' To keep .
'the sun on.' 'What do you want to
keep the sun off for?' Might get sun.-
struck.' 'Buppoae you did?' •Suppoie
you mind your owo business Die The
next one presumed upon his long
friendship to halt the man and whisper:
'Pretty sharp in you, old fellow; keep
the bulge toward your creditors and
they can't
, see you. , ' Other men .told
him that wearing a poultice on the
head would dispense with the umbrella,
and others said if he
afraid of his
ears being tanned- he should fasten
fan on each side of his hat. Not one
single man took hip by the" hand and
encouraged him, and when he_ reached
the post-office he was so discouraged that
he lowered his shade, and used it to
punch OW' ribs . of a boy who had begnu
to sing!
"He'a a Sat, he's a feller,'
♦nd he hip an old umbreller. "
We should think after a manflhad
been Secretary of the Treaury for three
or four' years, and had occasionally
'damped fifty millions of dollars' intu .
Wall street to relieve the money market,
and had called in twenty million sixet
at one tirlio, and bought two millions of
bonds every week, and disbursed eleveu
millions one week andoighteen
the next, we should think it would hnit
him awfully to go back into his law of
floe when the administration changed
and make out an abstract oft farm away
out in Backstuiw county and sell it for
an old woman down in Kickapoo
township to an old "fellow out in Wank:

that and then have to take a sorrel colt

'Twat; dawn beside the green canal,
One red-hot summerewday,
-I eat upon • cord-wood stick
And whiffed two . cents away;
And as the stifling smoke arose,
Like now-cloud' in the air,
I put on all the style I could
And smoked my first Dew.
I leaned against an old board pile,
And looked down in the-ditch;
E'en there the catiliir seemed to say,
'clionng man, go weat-lon're rich."

Front off my first Begat..
I watched the aaha as they tett
Like snow-Askew on the gronnd;-
And then I looked around to And
Some place to lay me down.
I hang me up npon &stick,

I was not drank, but oh, so sick'
