Vicissitudes ol' Fortunu In the Career
of a Noted Hanker.
Among the pushing throng of Broad
way to-day wiib an old gentleman clad
more in the garb of u countryman than
that of a great financier. His
clothes were plain , nnd his
white slouch hat with its broad
brim gave him the appearance of
a well-to-do farmer , says a Now York
letter to the Evening Wisconsin. The
hair and beard of Jay Coouo is now snow
white , but ho still moves along as il
contented with lifo. No ono familiar
with his every-day appearance would
think ho was the famous banker , the
man who hus bundled more millions
than any ether private individual in
America : fulled for more money than
any ether , and finally has grown rich
aguin uftor ho hud grown old. While
ho is by no means ns familiar a figure as
ho used to bo , and docs not mingle in
the uncertainty of "tho street" us ol
yore , ho Is more frequently soon umong
the bustle of business than almost any
man of his ago.
Jay Cooke hus had a singular career.
When the wur brolco out ho lived out
along Lake Erie , ut Sundusky , und
Salmon P. Chase , while secretary of
the treasury , first gave him a big start
in lifo , which ho followed to disaster ,
nnd then built anew from nothing. Mr.
C'ooko never forgot or neglected his
home in Ohio , and ono of his charities
is a beautiful homo on nn island in
Lake Erie , a few miles from Sandusky ,
which ho bought und named "Gibnil-
tur. " Ho hud it laid out in wild , roman
tic walks , und built a commodious stone
cnstlo upon it. Ho provided the honso
with every Imaginable comfort and put
into it a competent housekeeper. To
this retreat ho would invite each sum
mer ministers of the gospel of dllloront
denominations who could illy afford to
take a summer vacation.
Mr. C'ooko lives with his son-in-law
now , Mr. Uurnoy , who does business
near the famous old banking-house on
Third street , in Philadelphia , over
which Mr. Cooke once presided , und
where the Northern Pucllio railroad
wus projected. In many respects Juy
Cooke will go down to history us ono of
the remarkable men of our timo. In a
, little church out at Prankford near
Philadelphia , ho has a son preaching tea
a congregation who can hardly afford to
pay him salury enough to liquidate his
horse hiro. So the curious turns of lifo
tire aguin illustrated in Mr. Cooko's
curecr and in that of the family he hus

The bright little rlvor Leon winds
through English Nottingham famous
nowadays for its pork pies and lace
curtains , and once the scene of many
notable events , says a writer in the
Sunday Post-Dispatch. It washes the
biibo of the high , rocky hill upon which
once stood n cnstlo built by William the
Conqueror , and near which Charles I ,
raised for the first tlmo ( August , 1042) )
the royal standard and so begun the
war that brought him to the block.
Over the slono pnrupot which still
crowns the summit of the hill gentle
Mistress Lucy Ilutchlnson must huvo
often Icuncd with anxious heart , strain
ing loving eyes to cntch sight of the
returning banners of the godly Colonel ,
her husband , hastening buck to his
homo in the castle , uftor u sharp fight
with the king's troops over on the
watch to worry the sturdy Puritan com-
mnnder. ( Those who have not read
Mrs. IlutchinsJii's book have a rare
treat in store which ought not to bo
forgotten. )
Some sixty odd years ngo a comimny
of small boys were bathing in the his
toric Leon , when ono of them , moro ob-
scrvunt than the rest , shouted :
My informant looked up and saw a
hearse and two'or three curritipcs approaching
preaching the town along the London
road. Ho nnd his companions hastened
ushoro und into their clothes , uud from
a convenient spot watched the dismal
train puss by bearing the remains of
the poet who , whatever may bo his de
fects , has achieved a fume that will
uroly live as long as language lasts.
My small boy afterwards buw the collln ,
vhon it rested for a day in the grout
oem of the Rod Lion'inn , and ho
, lnnks now though he did not then
hut it wus something to see -ovun the
collln of the author of "Childo Harold's
Pilgrimage. "
The curious visitor may read , in the
old record book of IIucknall-Torkurd
church , this entry :
George Gordon Noel , Lord Byron , aged
hlrty-soven , was burled hero July 10 , 1821 ,
by Charles Nixon.
This undent sanctuury stands in the
ittlo village of IIucKnnll , which is
ibont tnreo miles fronl Nowstend
Vbbey. The villnge is the meanest
und dirtiest I have seen in Eng-
* lnnd , und the church itself is not very
nuch better. It is built of common
stono. with low roof , narrow aisles and
windows , bare walls and pews of plain
varnished pine. To the right of the
chancel , close up to the communion rail
at an elevation of perhaps ,10 feet from
; hc lloor , is a simjlo ) white marble tab-
.ot of Grecian design , with this inscrip
tion :
In the vault beneath
Where many of his ancestors'iind his mother
Are buried , lie the remains of
GEoiion Gonnox Nonr , BYIION ,

In the County of Lancaster ,
The author of "Childo Harold's Pilgrimage. "
Ho was born nt London on the
22d of January , 18SS ,
Ho died at Missolonghi , in Western Greece ,
On the 19th of April , 1824.

And renown.
His sister , tlio Honorable

Placed this tablet to his memory.
Near by is another and smaller tablet
of Uio same material , surmounted by
the armorial beurings of the Loveiuc'e
family , and with this inscription :
In the Byron vault below
Lie the remains of
Only daughter of George Gordon Noel ,
Sixth Lord Byron ,
And wife of
William , Earl of Lovelace.

This is "Adu , solo daughter of my
house und heart. " She would not bo
buried with her mother nor with hus
band and children , but by her own
most urgent dying request wns laid by
her father's side the father whom she
had known only through his books. Of
all the innumerable tributes to Byron ,
this token of his daughter's faithful ,
unchangeable confidence and love is tome
mo by far the most touching.
The drive from Nottingham to the
ten or twelve miles , passes through an
uninteresting country , and consequently
quently is not particularly pleasant.
But the tcavelor will bo amply repaid
for the time and trouble by what awaits
him at the journey's end. Nowstead

ono of the most attractive spots I have

predecessor in the title killed Mr.
William Chaworth. his neighbor , in the
luol fought In n London tavern , Jan-

invlng found it verdict of murder ,
Byron was sent to the Tower , whore ho
omainod until the mlddlo of April ,

Westminster hall , and acquitted tlmt

or which there was no punishment for

Two or three inches of the lower end

This nuol naturally mndo u feud be-
, ween the two families , but social In-
ercourso had boon so fur renewed by
, ho time our Byron became master of
Jowstcad. that ho was u welcome guest
at Annesley hall. There ho met.
vhon a Harrow schoolboy of
6 , Mary Anne Chaworth { pronounced
'Chowoth" ) then seventeen. She was
ho great niece of the man whom his
great uncle killed. Some authorities
iy she was Byron's , cousin , but , if so ,
t must have boon several degrees rc-
novcd. The romance which grow out
of this acquaintance is familiar to all
'cadors. ' The love between them was ,
loubtless , nil on his side ; girls seldom
eve boys two years younger than thcm-
elvos. That Byron loved Mary C'hn-
vorth or thought ho did is certain.
She was married in ISOo , and ho mot
ior for the first time after that o.venf. in
808 , dining at Anilcsloy by invitation
of the husband. Of that interview ho
vroto , in 1811 , this :
I've seen my bride nnothcrs bride-
Have seen her seated by his side
Have seen the Infant which < iho bore
Wear the swept smiles the mother were ,
When she nnd I In youth have sullied ,
And fond nnd faithless ns her child
Have seen her eyes in cold disdain ,
Ask it I felt no secret pain ;
And I have acted well my port ,
And made my ehcok belle my heart ,
Returned the freezing glnnca she gave ,
Yet felt the while that woman's slave ;
Have kissed , as if without design ,
The babe which ought to have been mine ,
And showed , alasl in each caress
Time hud not made me leva the less.
Long years after his ( and her )

The drive from Nowstcnd takes you
within sight of Annesloy Hall and ono
nay see , rising above the tree tops , the
chimneys and gables of the mansion
which was once the homo of Byron's
\liiry. \ It is a sight not easily forgot
Everybody at all familiar with
Byroin'c literature is aware that her
marriage was no happier than his. How
nuch moro unhrppy , how much worse ,
in many ways , very few know. Byron ,
jad as he may have been as a husband ,
was nn angel compared with the man
'or ' devil ) to whom Mary Chaworth
Jnkcd her futo. His muno was John
Musters fnmiliary Known as "Jack"
uid lie belonged to a good old family in
tbo country. Even at the ago of 65 ,
when my informant first know him , he
was a matchless specimen of physical
manhood. Tall and perfectly formed ,
easy and elegant in every movement ,
with herculean strength and ' , tongue
that could charm the birds put of the
trees , " no wonder that the girl of 18 was
fascinated by him when ho was in the
fine flush of youth. Jack Musters was
renowned as the best rider , the best
jumner , the best dancer and the best
pugilist in the whole Nottingham region
On a certain occasion , however , he met
in the " of solf-de-
his master "manly art - -
fonsc. " There was a chimney-sweep in
the town who , in addition to that busi
ness , was professor and pnictieor of the
aforesaid art , and novor'missod an op
portunity to improve himself therein.
He had long desired to have a fistic dis
cussion with Jack Musters , but of course
the aristocratic gentleman would not
try the gloves or bare knuckles with the
sweep. So the latter devised the in
genious experiment knowincrtho character -
actor of the man with whom he had to
deal. Ho one day walked out to Annesloy
Hall , duly equipped with piscatorial
paraphernalia and deliberately
in the private fish pond of the proprie
tor , which was-at a little distance from
and in full view of the mansion. Mus
ters , happening to look out of the win
dow , saw the" sooty O.nak Walton drop
ping his line in pleasant , , but prohibi-
ed places ; and , taking a heavy horse
whip , proceeded to interview in hostile
fashion. Mr. Swoop , watching for a
bite in the pond , got a tremendous one
over the back from the whip. Evident
ly ho was expecting this hot reception ,
and was ready to reciprocate , for the
lash had hardly touched him before ho
hit out from the shoulder with his
"right" and sent hm antagonist "to
grass" in very handsome stylo. Gon-
tlomnn Jack game to the corn picked
himself up , laid Uhide his whip ,
throw olT his coat , told Sooty to do
likewise and u battle began then and
there which lasted with fiov-
oral rests for renewal of wind nearly
two hours. Finally Jack "threw up the
sponge , " confessed himself fairly
beaten , shook hands with the victor ,
took him into the house , gave him a
glass of wino and also u free and full
permit to fish in that pond us long as
no lived. So Sooty retired , Komowhat
bruised nnd buttered , but with all the
honors of victory and championship ;
nlso with better wlno in his stomach
than ho hud over tasted before , besides
the perpetual fishing privilege , which ,
1 believe , ho was too chivalrous to ex

"Frimousso" writes from Paris to the
Boston Courier : I am about to write a
> luy in live nets , to bo performed by
Umo. Sura Bornhnrdt. But , before be
ginning I wish to know If my work Is
ikely to bo successful. 1 , therefore ,
isk your udvieo , expecting that you will
uiswor with the utmost frankness. I
shall accept with pleasure all the sug
gestions which you oiter mo , being
lulte decided to follow none of them.
I'hlH is my plan : first act A drawing-
oom. Mmo. Sara Bornhardt enters ,
uid declares that s-ho is weary of life.
She seines a knife and cuts her throat.
Very carefully studied und very alToct-
.ng ( lentil soono of a person whoso
hrout is cut. She dies.
Soeond act A smiling landscape. A
river running through It. Mmo. Sara
Bornhardt walks along the bank , says
, hat lifo has nothing to olTor her , and
jhrows herself into the rlvor. Very
realistic death scene of a drowning
person. She dies.
Third act A palace. Why a palace' ?
[ do not know ; but ono must give some
opportunity for decoration. Mine. Snrn >
Bornhnrdt appears. She hus made up
lior mind to commit suicideand poisons
liorself. Very well curried out repre
sentation of d'oath by poison. She dies.
Fourth Act An attic. ( That scene
will not cost much. ) Mmo. Sara Bern-
: iurdt , tired of existence , has seated
icrsolf near a charcoal steve and allows
iieraelf to bo suffocated. Very exact
impersonation of suffocation by ehur-
: oal. She dies.
Fifth Act A fitrcot. Mmo. Sura
Bornhardt is walking through it when
i chimney falls on her head. Very real
: md very harrowing death scone of a
person killed by the falling of a chim
ney. She dies.
As you may pcrceivo , this drama is
specially planned with the intention of
exhibiting the powers of the great
Lragodienno and of giving full scope to
tier resources as a dying person of the
first order. You may object that my
lioroinc , as she dies at the end of each
ict , should not appear in the following
nets. But that is only what is called a
fatago trick. Shukospuaro lias a great
many of them. Besides it allows the
lutlicnco to come in whenever they
choose. At whatever hour they arrive
they arc sure to see Sarah Bornhardt
die. That is the important point.

Klein. Ho was a good-natured , obedi
ent fellow and not easily put out , but
that night ho was out of sorts , and , as
the rebel pickets wore constantly firing
In our direction , Jake finally got his
dander up. It was against orders to
leave his post , but after a while ho
came lumbering through the bushes
like an ox-team and growled out :
"Vhell , shall we do somotings ? "
"What can wo do ? " I asked in return.
"Take 'em some prisoner , eh1
"You'd bettor go buoic and keep

"But dose rebels vhns shooting nil dor

I go oufor und sthop him. "
"Well , hurry up , " I replied with a
laugh ; and to my surprise and conster
nation ho started off in the direction of
arobel picket post. I celled to him ,
but ho answered back through the
darkness :
"It vhns itll right. I make dot _ feller
behave herself or pring him in some
prisoner ! "
Ho was gone half an hour before I
heard anything. Then there was a
crashing in the bushes , some swearing
and growling , and Jake appeared with
a full-rigged Confederate infantryman ,
having a firm clutch on his collar.
"Hero vhas dose feller , " he an
nounced as they came to a halt. "Ho
doan' promise to keep still , und M > I
pring him along , "
"Drat the onory Dutchman , " growled
the Johnny. "Ho stole up behind mo
and jumped on mo like a mountain be
fore I heard him. "
"Who vhas some DutchmansV" said
"You wn.s. "
' Look oudt a loodlc. ole feller , or I
knock oil your head ! I vhas.only Dutch
in my mouth ; all dor rest vhas union.
Como along und behave herself , or I
make you dead us crowbars ! "
Jake had actually captured a picket
on his po.-it and brought him oil a pris
oner , and ho did it as coolly as any of
the rest of us would go out to drill. The
rob was so mad lie cried , but lie was
turned over to headquarters , und Prl-

Frunk Boyio. They live ut No. 807
Went Walnut street , und have hereto
fore been considered rollnod pcoplo.
Their homo is in u little frumo cottiiffo ,
nnd they have been on the ruffgcd
cdgo of poverty for some tlmo.
The mother und duughtor nro members
of Christ church , , the most fashionable
congregation in Louisville , und hnvo
been objects of charity for sovorul
months. Poverty wus thought to bo the
cause of their exceedingly reticent und
retiring mnnnord and habits , hut lutoly
the report clrculuted in the neighbor
hood that the Hoylo family were acting
queer , nnd the attention of the charity
organisation wus drawn to thorn.
An Investigation wus made by two
phyfliciuns , und evidences of insanity
were discovered in ouch of the four
members of the family. They have
been living in thn greatest distress
nnd poverty for four months , and for
weeks hud not oilough food in Iho
houbo to keep body und soul together
Flnully they would huvo nothing to do
with the ladles of Christ church , who
had been prcvioubly assisting them , and
were fairly bturving to death nnd losing
their minds ut the sumo time It is
thought tlmt the mental aberration of
Iho Boyle family has Doun caused by
the pinch of poverty. It is nearly cor-
Uiin that if the discovery of their con
dition had been delayed much longer
the whole family would have boon rav
ing maniacs.
