It is twenty-t wo years since the re

who loves her fellow-woman, and yearns
over her. down throuch f oliv and inad-

shame. But, "wita au its xauits, mis
seems to be a sort of a test-play for
emotional, as "'Hamlet" is ; for intellect
tual power; so, when. Miss Clara Mor
ris, an actress in whom I am deeply in
terested, essayed the part of Oamule, I
was tempted to see her mora than once.
Her i. i performance- v- maraea
by 1 wonderful realization, , natural
ness, and magnetio power, but
it was, on the - -whole - too
plaintive, ingenious and iunocent.
There are before sae .now; two of
Sarony's exquisite photographs of : Miss
Morris one as Alixe, ir which charao
ter she won her best, most lovable fame,
the other as Camille, and it is difficult
to tell" which has the .most pure and
maidenly air and ; expression. ; I
thought Miss ' Morris sinned a little
against nature, or art, in being too pen
sive and distraite in the early seenes of
the i-lay.'; She is far removedyifrom her
gay companions; their wild, merriment
brings but a flickering smile to he
still, sad face white and cold as her
camellias. - love, t he only true love of
her unhappy life wrought little change
in this regard ia her Camille. She is
lovely .and remorseful from the first.
Yet surely a woman so exquisitely con
stituted, so sensitive to the ' hollo wness
and. humiliations of .her life, could
never have been the, queun-of the mad
set in which she is found could never
have, bo recklessly reveled in extrava
gance, luxury, and lying. There was
one 1 moment "-when ahe looked f .the
woman o f - that mysterious half r world
which ; so t often. . rules and, ruins the
creater world. It waa when her sweet,
subtle eyes were watering- with' almost
feline eaeernesa and coiminsr .the swift
dissolving of . : Armand 's ? scruples of
"honor," under the spell of Jier-tempt-incr
words and tender looks." Alas. ; the
chaste charms of "Valeria sleep coldly
in' hertomb,: while tae Boroeriea of
Phryne are immortal.' -The great scenes
for Miss" Morris, in this as inner other
roles, were - those of; pure . pathos,
esueciallv the one following her inter
view with that dreadful Duval pere,
and the death scene. We turned away
from the last, (earful and silent, &U the

way at an unknown time of trouble, one
of the manv sorrowful sackihars and

during the period of its decadence; the
precious contents of the hall were pre-.

covered them over, and there ithey have

The place where the statues were

street leading from St. Maria Maggiore
to San Croce in Gernsalemme.' In these

Everbodv knows that Michel Aheelo
repaired to Borne a second time, at the
solicitation pf Pope Julius 1L - The
latter wished to construct a mausoleum
for himself superior to any that had
ever been erected. Michel Angelo was
charged with the work, and thereupon
commenced a design worthy ox mmseii
and patron. ' This design was , a paral
lelogram, ana tne .superstructure was
to consist, - of forty : statues, many of
which to be colossal, and interspersed
with ornamental figures ' and "bronze
basai relievi, besides the necessary ar
chitecture, with appropriate, decora
tions, to unite the composition into one
stupendous whole." The Pope was
pleased with the design, ana mquirea
the . expense. "A hundred thousand
crowns," said the artist. "Let it be
twice that sum;, if it need be," contin
ued Julius, and he immediately gave
orders to execute the work.
4 It was suggested to . the Pope that
such a monument ought to have a
special chapel built expressly for, it,
and that St. " Peter's being an old
church, was not at all adopted : to the
purpose. ; t. a i .s-:; -'.:;- -

World. ;--,.t t rf:?Jt ;i ii'.'i '
The proposed execution of the mau
soleum was only' a comedy of many acts
and scenes. The order had been given,
and the blocks of marble awaited the
-click of the chisel. Michel Angelo so
licited ; the Pope forjpaoney. to pay his
assistants, and, was refused. Resolved
to seek some explanation, he repaired
to the pontifical palace, where a servant
denied him entrance, saying, "Excuse
me: I have express commands not

and about one-eighth the entire product
-of the numerous veins and mines form
ing the Peruvian - Potosi group for the
same extended period. The yield of the
Comstock lode last year amounted to
about $21,000,000, and this year about
$22,000,000, or within $3,000,000 of the
maximum annual yield of all the silver

huahua mines yield, all the- way from
$15,000 to $30,000 per ton, and second
class ore ranges from 2,000 to $15,000
per ton. The Comstock, of course, has
ore equal t this. There is no knowing
what might have been accomplished, in
the silver mines of Mexico and Peru had
they been systematically worked.

Three ex-priests Vidal. Houmoau, and

soul of a. relative or friend can tro to
certain agencies : in Paris, pay his
money, and insure the celebration in
any desired parish in France. This
system, however, is only authorized by
the laws of tho Church when it takes
the form of free exchange and,; receives
the permission ot the Bishop of the
diocese. Vidal began as early as 1855
to make a good income by the ad van
taees of the system presented, and on
several occasions he has been convicted
of malpractices and condemned to fines
and terms of inpnsonment. His plan
was to obtain the zees for the masses;
and never have them performed. He
cave himself out as an event for, trans
missions of masses. Vidal and his ac
complices also established a fictitious
society called the. Union Internationale,

On Sunday. Feb. 28, the pneumatic
mail system was opened for public use
in the city of Vienna, ana for the lew
to machinery employed and the systematic day ot its working it appears to have
manner m which it is being mined.
A shocking accident occurred on the
5th of March in Paris, which has thrown
the Rothschild and other great Jewish
families into mOurning. Madame Ans-
nach. with her son and daughter. Mile.
Helene Anspach a young lady of con
siderable beauty, well known in the
fashionable world of Pans were return
ing homeward toward midnight from
the Theatre Francais. Crossing the
Boulevard opposite the New - Opera,
Mile. Anspach was run - over by an
omnibus, two of the wheels p assiug over
her body, when picked up she was in
sensible, but as consciousness returned
she said she felt no pain, and was borne
without apparent sunerinsr to a cab. in
the vehicle she placed her head on her
mother's shoulder and took hold of her
hand, which she pressed against her
chest Madame Anspach giving utter
ance all the while to expressions of
thankfulness for what seemed to her the
miraculous preservation of her, child's
life. But on reaching the house -she
been eminently satisfactory. By this
method, lettert and packages not ex
ceeding twe ounces in weight can be
sent from one end of the city to anoth
er a distance of about 8 miles in
something less than two seconds, so that,
adding to this the tune necessary for
making up packages, assorting them,
and delivering them," the 'whole is
just about one hour. - But' this only
covers extreme distanoes, and the man
agers of this system in Vienna say that
in a snort time the time between tne
receipt and delivery will be greatly re
duced. - In fact, between stations only
two or three miles distant from each
other, such packages are erven now de
livered within twenty minutes after
beintr deposited. As the ceneral post-
office in Vienna ia also in the building
of the general telegraph effioe, powerful
