their eztensive use, by physicians in

effectual purgative Pill that 'mediCal
science can devise. Being purely veg

use, and being' sugar-timed,. they 'ge

and curative powersi no other Pills
can be compared with' hem; and every
person, knowing th'virtues , will

employ them, wheal needed. , They
keep the system in rfect order, and
maintain in healthy action the whole
machinery of life. Mild, searching and
effectual, they are especially adapted
to the needs of the digestive apparatus,
derangements of which thei prevent
and cure, if timely taken. They are
the best and safest physic to' ;employ
for children and weakened constitu

braids, and her pretty blue dress floating
round her like an i nzure cloud. •

as Rosa paused at the glass to' adjust her
hair. "I wish I were engaged!" ,

Baltimore has krolenjayed a - wide reps

beginning, not so much hem the number of
Itsheautiful women as for their celebrity.
Early in the present century there , grew up ,
to - womanhood. a fair lialtimorean, whose
betrutyand fasciae - ton realized - Tennyion's
"Dream of Fair Women," and whose his.
tort' Was more strange and romantic than
-the pages of fiction. The daughter of an
Irish adventurer who made a fortune by
lucky speculations during the American rev
olution, Elizabeth Patterson became, by her
rash but ambitious' marriage with Jerome
Bonaparte,, the sister.in-law of the greet
Emperor, and'although her husband was a
king she remained a crownless and deserted
wife. But after the fall of him whose genius
hid raised them hire satellites to shine
around'the imperial throne,
.the Bonaparte
family retuniedio their original obscurity,
while Madame. Bonaparte entered upon, a
social career in Europe more brilliant than
any. American woman had previously en.
joyed. In Paris, Bomb, Florence and Ge r
neva she reigned queen of all hearts and the
mistress of her own. Sailing rerehely on
the top wave of European society, ".bean-t
ties envied her beauty and wits dreaded her
wit, kings sought her acquaintance and
princes claimed her friendship." Paris, ever
giddy and fickle, received her • with open
arms, and what she appreciated far more,
with the open doors of the most exclusive
circles. Her harsh treatment by Napoleon
bad made her a l heroine. Her grace and
beauty blade her a queen in the Parisian
world. Wellington admired her beauty;
Talleyrand enjoyed her wit, Madame de'
Steel praised her grace, and . Chateanbriand,
Sismondi, Humboldt, Canora and other cel
ebrated men were numbered =Long her ac
quaintances. In Florence the Grand Duke
paid her most distinguished attention. She'
was - at a ball every night, and shone as a
brilliant star in Italian society. From these
gay and dazzling scenes Madame ‘.Bonaparte
shuddered at the thought of 'returning to the
"dull, little trading town of, Baltimore," as
she contemptuously called her native city.
She had written to her father that, after
marrying the brother of an Emperor, she
had nol!equal in America ; that she could not
be heppy, there, and to return home would
be tosacrifice all that,she had valued upon
earth., But she did return to her home,
after reSiding abroad, altogether, twelve

saving in Baltimore. In thirtY,years, by
,Close economy and judicious investment, she
,accumulated $1,500,000. . "Once I had
everything but money, now I have nothing
but money," she said in her old age. At
length she died' in -the ninety•fitth year 'of
. her age, retaining to .the , last some of the
traces ,of I that" trauscendent beauty which
more,than three-feurtlisof a century before
.had, led captive the . fickle heart of Jerome
Bonaparte. She left her .immense ,fortune
to her two grandsons, Colonel Jerome Na

The steamer Heflin was the last runner in
or .out of Charleston.. She was a small ves

gines, and she made' , more trips than any
' other vessel engaged in the business.
ed men in Charleston who knew all about
her to aghast° the wane of the cargoes
taken out and brought ill. Cy this one vessel,
and their figures were $50,000,000. On
several occasions she brought such -muni
tions of war as the Confederacy ts!s in
pressing need of, and at least three Slinks
were brought on by the munitions for which
the Confederates waited, .and which she
landed safely in.their bands. Plot after Plot
was formed at Nassau to get hold of the
Hattie, but none of them were successful.
She slipped inisiOnt Wm a phantom, tak
ing the most dsi*Srate risks and being: at
tended by a spirit of good kick quite orbs
oplinary.
The last entrance of the Hattie into
Charleston occurred one night in February,
1863. The Confederacy was .the on its
last legs, and the Federal fleet off Charleston
numbered eighteen'or twenty sal It was a
Starlight night and at an early hour that the
Hattie crept forward anions the fleet i She
had been freshly paintedU blue white, her
tree made no smoke and not a light was
permitted to shine on board. With'her en
gines moving slowly, she let the wind drive
her forwirll. There were eight or ten ves
sels outside the bar, and as many within.-
Those outride were successfully passed with
out an alum being raised..— The Hattie ran
within 300 feet of two different blockaders
without herpresence being detected. To
the naked eye7of th e e look-oats she must
have seemed a isize or mist moving slowly
along.
The little steamer was quietly approach
ing the inner line of blockaders when a' sud
den fire was opened on her from a gun-boat
not 200 feet distant, and the air was at, the
nine time filled with rockets to announce
the runner's presence. At that time the
Federals had the whole of Morris Island,
and Fort Sumter had been , so baitered to
pieces that monitors took up their stations
almost within pistol-shot of it. As soon as
the Hattie was discovered she was given all
steam and headed straight for the channel.
She ran a terrible gauntlet of shot and shell
for ten minutes, but escaped untouched.
Then MUM the real peril. Just below Sum
ter, in the narrowest part of the channel,
the Hattie encountered two barge loads of
men stationed there on picket. Her mire
ordinary speed saved her from being board.

two or three men and cut three fingers off
the hand of the pilot resting on the spokes

Two hundred yards ahead lay a

and She at once opened fire and kept her
guns going as long as the Hattie could be
seen, but not a missile struck. It wail won.

so close that she could hear the orders given
on the monitor.

WASHINGTON'S MOTHER'S - HOUSE.
The Old Resldesee Still Masai. at Fred.
erleksburg
It irill be borne in mind by most readers
that George Washington's mother resided in
Fredericksburg during the Revolution. She
had lived there for some years previously
and continued to do so until her death. Her
old residence, situated in the westerly part of
the town, is yet standing and occupied, and
lain as good a state of preservation .as the
average dwellings of the town. It is - a
wooden building i .of two - stories, with one
story wings projecting from either gable arid
dormer windows. built into the roof. -It
stands at the corner - Of a square, flash with
the sidewalk with a porch projecting nearly
to the curb. The entire building is about
seventy.five feet long.
,The fear walls' of
the wings are; curiously enough, constructed
of brick although the house is framed. The
farm owned by the Washingtons at that
time lies on the opposite side of the river,
just below the town, or at the point where
the First andßixth corps, under Smith and
Reynolds, crossed the river at the assault
upon Fredericksburg in 1862. It is said—
and every reader will remember hearing it
during the days of his boyhood—that Wash

ton farm. Common rumor, as handed down
to' the present day, represents the old lady
as not being especially amiable, a little im
prudent in the choice and use ofvbeyerages,
and rather free with the rattan among her
servants, sometimes following them out into
the street in her frantic applications of the
lash. On the occasion of her son's victor
ious return•to Fredericksburg at the close of
the war,. and when everyone else was on the
streets in gala dress to welcome him, her
own heart was not sufficiently Stirred to in
duce her to leave her room, until he entered
the house, mid sent a request that she should
come to him. Eight years hacfpasse,d since -

of double drafts, great savings,.. increased
cheerfulness, reduction in price, and all that,
and she said she'd think it over and drop in

THE - KEENEST, - ENEMY OP • WOMEN.
Quit says : "A man's foes are 'those, of
his own household, and the keenest enemy
of women are women themselves. No one
.can inflict such hrimiliation on
. a momair as a
woman can when she chooses ; for if the art
of high-handed_imubbing belongs to men,
• that of subtle wounding is peculiarly femin
ine, And is practiced by , the best bred of her
sex. Women are always more or less antag
onistic to each- other. They, are gregarious
in fashions and emulative in follies, but they
cannot combine ; they never "support their
weak sisters ; they shrink from those who
are stronger than the average ; and if they
would speak the truth boldly they would
confess to a radical contempt for each oth- er's - Intellect., which, perhaps, is the real
reason why the sect of the ' 4 emancipated'
ceinnuFds so small a following. half a
dozen ordinary men advocating 'emancipa
tion ' doctrines would do more toward
leav
ening the whole bulk of womankind than
any number of first-class women. Where
they do bland by each other it - is from in
stinctive or personal affection, rather than
from class solidarity. And this is 'trite of
the most striking distinctions- of sex, and
one cause, among others, - why men have the
upper hand, and why they are able to keep
it."
