the drama which is now so rapidly de

the terrible strain npon lier physical and
mental powers, great us they undoubtedly

able at this juncture.
The Empress Eugenic was born of
Countess Tlieba de Monrijo, and is a di
rect descendant of an Irishman by the
name of Kirkpatrick, a wirrcbant of
wines an . fruits at M alaga, Kirkpatrick

age, uot only by her great personal beauty
but by her extraordinary talents aud
accomplishments. Accident liuide her
uctjuamted with a former Spanish officer

was poor, but belonged to the oldest
ans.ucracy of Spain, and Miss Kirkpat
rick lenioved to Madrid, and entered iho
highest social circles as Couutess de
Moiuijo. Eugenie, the present Empress
of the French, is oue of her daughters.
