A Sketch from the French of Edmnud About,
Ravin g taken the second prize in trag

his debut at the Odeon. 4 was, if I re
member aright, in January, 1846, when
he appeared as " Orosman, ' and "was his
sed by every student from the lett bank
of the Seine.
None of his friends were surprised ; it!
is so difficult to succeed in tragedy, when
one's name is Gorgeon. He ought to
have taken a nom de guerre, such as Mon
treull, or Thabri; but the in or fellow
stuck to his name as his sole tinheritance.
However, his fall made but little noise ; .
for he had few friends, was duly twenty,i
and was protegecd by none of the journals.l
Poor Gorgeou I
No director would engage him for trag
edy, but an old comedian friend got him
into the Valais Royal, and he y took his lot!
philosophically. "After all,' I thought he,
comedy has more of a future. befere it
than tragedy, for There will prObably, be Doi
more Racines, while it is quite possible to
write better Vaudevilles than'elairville."
He was soon discovered to; have talent
in his new role, pos.iessing a ideasant voice,
1a - natural, fund of
,Wit. and , mimicry, and
!great command of countenance; and the
ipublie took him into. favor ;'• so that the
name of Georgeon was passed from mouth
to mouth, as that of an actor with the
combined merits of Sainyillennd
Tonez. •

marry !" '
•And, , for economy, -he married the ver
iest coquette in the theatre--and in Paris.
None of wy Parisain readers, I am sure,
can have forgotten that pretty little Pau
line Riviere, whose wit and beauty were
the success of ninny a vaudeville. Her
eyes, though snialf, mere so sparkling they
seemed to - flash over her whole face, and
hair, so black and so that
. the role
of a SwlsS girl was created pirposely for
her to display it. Her figure was charm
ing; and as to her hands, they were ab
solutely curiosities; and Jouvin• invented
a glove ,number fur them-5 12 At
seventeen, with no fortune but her beauty;
no ancestors save the chief of the cliTte
of the Theatre Palais Royal, she just int-
Sed being a Marquise. A descendant of
the Round Table Knights, indubitable
Marquis,- and unmitigated Breton took
it into his head to marry her. A couple
of dowager aunts were the only obstacle's;
but, alas " The anger of dowagers," saitlr
Solomon (?) !"is terrible, especially of
Breton dowagers ?" and Pauline remained
Itauline. At this crisis carne Gorgeon to
kneel at her shirne. She received him at
first with that impartial grace : which Sher
accorded to all her suitors alike, foil he
was gockl looking, dressed well, and had
an agreeable voice and style.
He began the siege", theg, under favor
able auspices, and at the end of the month
Pauline liked him. (This was in Febra
aay, 18D.) In March she liked him bet
ter than all the others ; in April she loved
him and let him discover it. He waited
for her to dismiss his rivals, but Pauline
was in no hurry, and the preparations for
marriage went on amid a crowd of amor
°lts besiegers whose attentions gave Gor
geon the shivers. He was happy neither
at his rooms net. at Pauline's, for at his
were creditors, and at hers her beaux • and
he finally asked her, one day, plainly, if
these gentlemen could not find another
divinity to sigh to.
" Bah !" 'said she, "you are going to be
jealous ? You. know I love you, for I tell
you so; and, to prove it, I am going to
marry you. Besides, jealousy is so inewia
ridiculous, always; but in our profession
it is absurd!" • i
The marriage came off the last of Aprik
Two benefits paid Gornon's debts and the
wedding expenses - the first at the Odeon,
the second at the Italian. Indeed, all the
theatres in Paris wanted to take part, for
GorgeOn and Pauline were liked every
where.' They were united at Saint Itoch,
gave a grand dejeuncr at Pesters, and left I
for Fontainbleau in the evening.
The first quarter of their honeymoon
was shedding its radienee over. the old for
est when they arrived—Gorgeon as proud
as the son of an emperor, and Pauline as
gay as a humming bird. The next morn
tng, the Ist of May, was the fete des Salk
tons, which is kept up till _the •ensuirig
dawn, under the giant beech trees, and all
the youth of; the neighkrhOod were there;
all admired Pauline, and took her for the
!lady BOantiful of the neighbciring chateau,
coming to 'patronize their festivities,-
which she joined heartily, and dancOd
away till three o'clock in the uiorning, in
spite of the gravel getting in her little
Paris boots.
Gorgeon was not jealous. When they
returned to the Palais Royal, he made no
ill-natured remarks about his fellow actors
tutoying his wife, as they had always done.
She was' almost their adopted daughter---,
they bad known her an infant bebiml the
scenes, and she remembered being dandled
On their knees. Bat what did worry , Goi.
geon slightly was, to notice Pauline's
quondam admirers ogling her throng,h their
opera-glasses, and this nearly caused hiin
to forget his cue on - ttroroecasions, for
which, he .was lauglred at by his comrades,
,who disiovered the cause, and one joker
told him he was going down hill to the
I" third roles!' (They call, , the " third
relics" the villians, jeatditis husbands' ind
'splenetic old men.) He. took the, jokast
lin good part, however, ,though he couldn't
digeit the gentlemen of the opera ; glasses,!

'the notice ou thegreen-room door forbid=
ing all orasidersientrairce into - the myste

to accompany Palatine home . , and 'to the
theatre every time she plaved without
him; but Pauline didn't object to
for though she 'was a little of a flirt, she
loved- her husband. :-
The summer 11—aiser.1 pleasantly enough;
the members of "young Paris were at
the various watering plaees, , and Monsieur i
de Gaudry, the Breton Marquis 'Who want
ed to "marry - Pauline, passed the season at,
1 his chateau ; so that the honeymotin didn't
ferment. - But in December' Paris came
.and the dramatic: society posted
their bills for_a grand artist's bill on the
first of February, of which Gorgeon Was,
secretary, and his wife a patroness. All 1
the young men, a- la mode of theatrical
life; rushed for tickets to the patronesses,
and the prettier their were the greater the
dethand. Gorgeou saw that he could not
close his door; his staircase was in a con
stant Corinotion; and his bell rope was
worn out by inutnerable yellow kid.S. 31.
de Gaudry cameto buy a ticket; then lost
it - andreturned for another,•which he gave
hisibrother, andlwas forded to'come again
foria third, and the neat day for a fourth
forla friend of his, . and again for one of
his. club—up to at least a dozen. Gor
geOn was one of Bertrand's best pupils;
he could tip the
I ,button nine times out of
twelve with.the- pistol ; but what was all
that? M. de G-audry had not insulted
hitt), ; on the contrary, he was the mirror
Of kindness and courtesy ;iif he quarrelled
with De Gaudry, the world would not only
make hint in the wrong; but would say, he
' was cracked. -
Pauline loved him as well as ever, but
she liked company and corm:Ai:hunts, and
played with the tire like a woman who was
sure of not burning her, firwers. .)hen.
G4rgeon proposed tartly to shut the door
it(the face of her admirer, she stopped
him at once. •
" Ldon't want to make you ridiculous,"
said she.; " don't be alarmed; if any one
of these gentlemen outstep propriety, I
shall know\how i to show him his error;
bat if we make a scene, all Paris will know
of it, and you will be pointed-at-in the
He had the imprudence to allude to
these annoyances iu the presence of some
of his artist companions., , and the conse
quence was a constant series of jokes and
puns at 'his expense, (not his thee, but
where he would•be sure to hear of them,)
which ended by souring his temper and
destroying his domestic peace. \
He accused, and quarreled wrth his
wife, and she, confident in her innocence,
mace him back t for tat.
In the midst of these disturbances, the,
anniversary of their. marriage slipped by
without notice by either. The next day
each one recollected it, and GorgeOn said
to himself: "She can't love me much to
have let it pass unregarded ;" while Pau
line thought her husband repented of his
match. But M.,de Gaudry - , who was nev
er far out of the way, sent her a bracelet.
Gorgeon wanted' to take it back, with an
expression of his sentiments. Pauline in
sisted on keeping it. ' " Because you don't
think it worth while to mike me a pres
ent," said she, "you find fault with my
friend's attention." ; • -
" Your friends pre, asses, whom I intend
to'chastise," cried Gorgeon.
" You'd better correct yourself. I thought
up to this moment ;that there were two
classes of men superior to the:herd—no
blemen and,artists; ,but I know at least
what to think of artists now r
" Yon may think what you like," said

and Pauline threw it in-the fire without

. .
In November Pauline, her resentment
still carefully fanned by her friends, was
one morning diessinn• ° herself before the
glass for a rehearsal. Her cousin had
gone to market, !eating the key in the
door, and Abe comedienne was unrollin,,c ,
the last curl! 'paper,- when she perceived
in the , mirror a small, extremely ugly
man, enveloPed in a fur , cloak, standing
in the .door-way, and with a Scream of
terror she turned round :"Who are you ?
—what do You ?--go out, sir! You
can't enter here'! Marie!" cried she, the:
words follniving each other so . rapidly
that they seemed to fall in a stream from
her lips_ t
"I am n t in love .with yon—you do

with visibl embarrassment.
"Love! Is it I who love you, then?—

"Madinah!" almost 'shrieked- Pauline.
