At the period "when the States of Gre
noble assembled at the Chateau de'Vizil
le, were preparing the revolution of 17S9
Befnadotte, then a sergeant, was quarter
ed in the town. . Little dreaming of his
future eminence, he passed, his 'time be
tween his military duties; in cards and gal
lantry. -; He had obtained considerable
reputation arnoug his.' comrades for his
success in the latterart, and made it a
point of honor, to sustain it.. An opportu
nity presented itself on ; the famous day
of the -"tiles."0 On that day, as is well
known,. the women of Grenoble, mounted
on the roofs of . their houses and assailed
the royal troops with a shower of tiles.
Bernadotte, being engaged with his reg
iment in Rue Pertuiiiere.'was struck on
the head by one of those projectiles, and
fell.. He was at first thought to be dead,
but manifesting some, .symptoms of life,
ho was conveyed into a neighboring cafe,
and laid upon the table, which is still
preserved and shown. ' He was not, how
ever, destined to the fate- of Pyrrhus.
By degrees he began .to recover, and, on
opening his eyes, he. saw among the crowd
who were tendering -assistance, tt fair
young girl, whose bright blue eyes were
suffused with tears, and whose emotion
was manifested at i the pain he appeared
to suffer. He raised himself on his el
bow; and, gazing at her. attentively, he
seemed struck with her beauty. After a
little time, finding himself better, he cal
led for a glass, of brandy, !and rejoined
his regiment. . ;, ..-..... --
Quiet being established at Grenoble,
Bernadotte left no means .'unimployed to
discover the fair unknown. For three
weeks he continued his romantic search,
when, one day, while pensively, walking
in the Jardin de Ville, he saw her ap
proaching. He watched her home, and,
returning the next day, found the means
cf obtaining access to her house, and de
claring his love. ' The girl's name was
Amelie; She was a dress-maker, and
about eighteen years of age; but there
was a riral in the field a young watch
maker of the town. Not knowing how
to dispose of him,, and, moreover, being
violently in lore, Bernadotte . spoke, of
marriage, thinking by that means to over
come all difficulties. But he failed.
Amelie loved neither the citizen nor
the hero; but the first was a watch-maker,
and the other, nothing at all not
even a king of Sweeden, She preferred
the shop to the haversack, and became
the fiance of the watch-maker. When
Bernadotte heard her decision, his fury
knew no bounds. He rushed to the
house of his rival, and .declared his love,
and his pretensions to the hand of Ame
lie, and challenged his rival to decide the
question by the sword. The watch-maker
was nothing loth, and the parties met.
The citizen, little accustomed to the use
of the weapon, was soon severely wound
ded, and Bernadotte hastened to the house
of the lady. He had been there but a
few minutes, and had even forgotten the
occurrence which had . just . tiicen place,
when a loud knocking; was .heard at the
door. It was from tho wounded lover of
Amelie, brought thither apparently in a
dying state. She was overwhelmed with
grief and horror, an I turning to Berna
dotte, loaded him with the severest re
proaches, and drove him from the house.
He saw her for the last time In a month
she had became the; wife, of the watch
maker; Bernadotte,- when he heard it,
determined first to shoot her then to mur
der her husband, and finally to blow out
his own brains. Fortunately for hi3 fu
ture crown he did neither. ".
The blue-eyed heroine of this adven
ture now alive, a decrepid, crooked,
wrinkled old woman, a servant at a com
mon inn, and in a slate of1 abject poverty
related the, circumstance many years
afterwards. "Ah, sir" said she, in con
cluding her story, "I should' have done
better if I had married Bernadotte I
should have been a Queen now sir ! yes
a Queen, instead of-waiting upon every
body here! I should have had a court
and subjects, and fine clothes; I should
have been a Queen I Ah ! I made a great
mistake a sad mistake ! I ought to have
foreseen this, for, I assure you, sir, Mon
sieur Bernadotte was not a common man,
I had a kind of presentiment that some
thing would happen but what would you
have? When wo are young we do not re
flect ; we are ambitious ; . we refuse king
doms, and make fools of ourselves!"
saying which she shed tears.
. When asked whether she had ever
heard anything from him, 6he answered,
"Never, sir; I have written to him sev
eral times since he became a king, but
he has never returned any answer. My
husband says it is because I did not frank
my letters. It is very likely; and then,
perhaps, he may still feel annoyed at my
refusal. If we were both free again,
and I had any money I would go to Swee
den. Perhaps he would marry me, or at
any rate give me his linnen to mend. That
would be something, after all."
From a diadem to a darn ! Could Love
himself ever have conceived anything so
A Mr. Peters sends a roll of butter
to the Ironton (O) Register, stating that
it was "made from the milk of a calf but
nine months old. The calf has never had
a calf, hut has run with others that have
sucked her until the, owner found it ne
cessary to milk her regularly." : .

brought with', him his family, consisting
of his wife and two children, a boy and
girl aged about sixteen and eighteen
years. They were in a condition cf the
most extreme, and painful penury and
destitution, were clothed in squalid and
filthy rags, - and entirely "lacking- every
necessary of life. ; They - obtained per
mission to occupy a shanty room ' cn Buf
falo street, near the round house, where
they managed somehow to live for a few
weeks.. . They had no bed, but slept on
a pile of rags in a corner cf the rccm.
Unable, however, to pay their rent, they
incurred the wrath of the landlady, who,
one day, ascended to their room, threw
the stcve out cf doors, and played smash
generally. For -this exploit she was
fined eighteen dollars; and by some means
or ether, peace wa3 restored, the poor
family contsnuing to remain in thu room.
Soon after this they all fell sick. A
doctor was sent for, who refused to pre
scribe for them unless they wculd buy
the medicine. ' This they were umblc to
do and consequently tbe County Phys
ician was sent for. He prescribed for
them and finally restored, them to he-.hh.
During their sickness, a kind and chari
table Catholic Priest came to see them.
His heart melted at their misery, and
out of his own pocket he paid their rent
for a month or two, and went around
among the neighbors soliciting contribu
tions for the distressed family. The
neighbors responded to the appeal, and
sent necessaries to the poor family. One
kind woman brought articles to the value
of six shillings, and presented them to
Mr. McManning, and others did like
About a week ago, Mr. McManning
and his son went out to the town of Thor
ton, in this county, and there purchased
a farm for which they paid 850 in gold.
They returred to this city with $300 also
in gold, and Christmas" having arrived,
concluded to 'celebrate" by a good old
fashioned Irish drunk. To procure the
whisky they sent down to the. saloon kept
by their landlady, and tendered in pay a
bright and shining-half eagle.,
Then, for the first time, suspicion en
tered the mind of the gentle dame, she
smelled'a mice. She ascended in dire
ful wrath to the apartment of her iodg
ers. She there instituted a search for
the goose that laid such golden eggs.
She found it hid away under the rags
that served as a bedin the shape of an
old tar pot. In it were three hundred
dollars in gold, and a certificate of de
posit upon a bank in Baltimore, in the
name of Charles Manning, calling for
$500 more. The old man stormed lor
awhile, but finally confessed and told the
whole story. The son and the rest of
the family were dressed up in fine clothes
which they had had all the time hid away
in their chest. Intelligence of what had
occurred soon spread about, and reached
the ear of Dr. Gore, the County Physic
ian, who had attended the family in their
illness. He repared to the shanty, in
formed the old man that he was aware of
his having come to his fortune, and re
joiced to know that it was now in his
power to pay his doctor bill ! The sura
was only $40, and it must be paid. in
gold. If it was not paid, the Doctor
smilingly intimated that it would be his
painful but imperative duty to conduct Mr
McManning before a court and there re
quire him" to answer to the charge of
fraud. This' threat had the effect the
tar pot was pulled out, and the $40 in
gold counted down. During this opera
tion the old lady seated herself about
three feet from the table on which the
money was "counted down, and a3 each
piece was told, gave expression to her
Old man, counting the money "There
is five, Docther."
Old woman "Oh Lord !" '
Old man'- '-An' ther's tin."
Old woman " Holy Virgin ! Have
mercy!"- ' '
, 'Old man "An' ther's twinty."
Old woman "May all the Saints and
blissed martyrs curse "
Old man "An' tin 'more is thirty."
' Old woman, "May the horned divil take
ye, Docther, wid your murderin' pills and
Old man "And tin more makes forty,
an' that's all of it entirely, Docther."
Old woman "Oh, we are ruined and
kilt entirely. Bad cess to the day when
ye darkened our door! May the devil
fly away wid ye !"
We hope the good priest will call upon
this happy family, 'and recover back his
money before they leave for their farm,
which they will do a3 soon as their pres
ent drunk is finished.
In ..speaking of Matrimony in Salt
Lake City, the "Tan" says : .
We saw, a week or two ago, walking
down Main street from the "President's
OfRce," a man accompanied by four la
dies. An air cf slight perturbation in the
party mingled with evident expressions
of satisfaction and happiness, led us to in
quire who they were. Some one pres
ent informed us that they were a party
that had been up to President Young's
office to be married, and fhat the four la
dies had just been united in indissoluble
bonds to the man accompanying them.
That; we suppose might be termed marri
age in gross.
