fact is that in her early youth she and
her sister had been stars in the fashiona

ers of society among persons of "the

The writer of an account of her which
appeared somo years since in the Literary
Gazette, thus describes her from personal
"Mrs. Luson was fond of dress, and
possessed a large collection of old ap
parel. One of her favorite dresses had
belonged to Cromwell's wife; another to
his daughter, Lady Falconberg, being
. the dress in which that lady had walked
at the coronation of James II. Mrs.
Luson had also thoso which Cromwell's
daughters wore on a day of par
ticular rejoicing, when tho arti
cles of peaco were signed between
tho States of England and Holland
in 1655-'5t5. One of these dresses was
valued at nearly 500 guineas. Added to
all these wero other costly and splendid
specimens that comprised her own par
ticular wardrobe; these she often review
ed with particular pleasure, and has been
known to boast that they once exceeded
in nnmbor the days of the year. Many
of the most expensive she had not worn
for years, but they were regularly once a
month or oftener taken out of the large
mahogany coffers in which she kept them,
. ired and carefully inclosed again in flan
nel wrapjiers. In the middle of the night
she would sometimes call up her servant
to give directions about the alteration in
a gown or the padding of a pair of stays;
her favorite pair had been altered, quilt
ed and padded so often that they were
nearly three inches thick, and actually
weighed more than a dozen pounds.
Over these, in the afternoon
put on a single gown; but in the morn
ing she sometimes wore three or four
gowns at once. When indisposed (which
indeed was not often), she would give
orders respecting alterations in some
particular dress; and, sitting up in her
bed, she would put it on, dress her hair,
and ordering the glass to be brought, ail
mire herself for hours in that situation.
Her head-gear was in the same style of
antiquity as her other habiliments; it was
a tete (snch as had once been fashiona
ble, and which she never laid aside)
formed of dark hair, and nearly sixteen
inches high; she wore it regularly pow
dered, and her friends have affirmed that
it became her admirably. She had the
greatest; antipathy to soap and water,
never washing herself, but using a cos
metic, the composition of her mother,
from whom she learned to prepare it,
and which was composed of the finest
mutton suet clarified, with the addition
of some emollient and perfumes, the
particulars of which were her own secret.
As the color of her cheek decayed, she
ought to supply its faded bloom with a
more injurious composition, using an
immoderate quantity of paint, which, de
troving her complexion entirely, left
her" at length a singular spectacle,
erasing from the placid dignity of age
every line of its venerable beauty.
Mrs. Luson was always an early riser,
and during the h t few years of her life
she got up regularly at - o'clock in the
morning. If b chance, she happened to
lie in bed later than that hour, she would
oold herself in the hearing of her maid,
saying, "Ah! you've been a very idle
girl to-day, that you have!" She kept
very large fires burning in her apart
ments both winter and summer, and
some of hor fire places were so largo that
they would consume a bushel and a half
of coals a day. Soon after she rose she
had her breakfast of tea and between it
and dinner time she would have four or
five other breakfasts served, partaking
moderately at each, and drinking nothing
but tea; for during the courso of her long
life, she partook of coffee only once, and
frequently afterward declared that had
she drank it for ono week together, it
would have occasioned her death. As
regarded more substantial food, sho had
a most extraordinary choice of dishes,
one of which was sausages and boiled
and stewed turnips. On January 30th she
always adhered to Mr. Luson's politica
custom of having a calf's head in ridicule
of the royal decapitation; in hor case,
however, it was nothing more than a
cherished memorial of the habits of her
deceased husband. Sho was undoubted
ly the last who practiced this long popu
lar custom. She had also other particu
lar dishes on certain days; and in tho
course of her diurnal repasts she used
each room in the house alternately. The
entrance doors of her residence were
plated with iron and further secured by
nearly twenty bars and bolts, so fearful
was sho of being attacked by thieves an
occurrence which her numerous precau
tions rendered almost impossible. Mrs.
Luron had no family. Whether it was
really the cause or effect of her sound
health, she never took a dose of medicine
or employed a doctor; and when sho died
she passed away painlessly and gently,
apparently suffering from no disease, but
simply by the decay of her bodily pow
ers. What became of her property and
curious collection of dresses I have never
been ablo to learn. N. Y. Tribune.
A Midnight Battle.
We have a rat story, which, as told l"
Mr. It. E. Pettingill, clerk of the Mu
nicipal Court, is good ; and as it is per
fectly true, is interesting. It was on
last Sunday, very early, that Mr. P. and
his amiable wife were aroused from
balmy sleep by strange noises. They
listened, and over and anon, thump,
thump, would go something. Mr. P.
thought of burglars. He proposod to
get ui), arm himself and go forth. He
didn't spend any time dressing himself
lie only put on a seven-shooter and a
pair of slippers. He went through the
parlor, dining room, kitchen, and found
nobody, nothing, lhe noise continued.
It could not be a ghost, thought Mr. P.
He was not afraid of ghosts, anyway.
He went into a store room. The noise.
which still coitinued, seemed to come
from an empty flour barrel. The cover
was raised. All was still. At the bot
torn of the barrel there appeared some'
thing of a darkish color (the room was
dark) and Mr. P. reached down, think
ing what he saw was a piece of carpet or
a piece of cloth, it was a heap of rats!
And when his hand touched them they
tore about at a frightful rate. They
could not jump high enough to escape.
The cover was slapped on and Mr. P.
hud away his revolver and put on a pair
of thick leather gloves. There he was
with gloves and slippers just in tho
right trim for rat killing. The bloody
tragedy begun by Mr. P. reaching into
the barrel, grasping a rat and dashing
him to the floor or against tho wall.
This work continued until four or five of
the rodent rebels wero dispatched, when
those in the barrel, appearing to rcalizo
what was going on, mado such desperate
efforts at leaping and scrambling that
Beven or eight of them got out, and were
on the floor. The door had been closed.
There was no chance for escape. A
lighted lamp on the shelf proved of great
service. Mr. P. had full view of the
premises. Unfortunately there was noth
ing at hand that he could use as a
weapon, and he dared not open tho door
to go forth in search of something. He
got down on his knees and went for the
ratship, belting them this way and that
way with his gloved hands. By and by
the rats in great terror sought their
hiding places. tp went three or four
and hung to his flannel irarment. They
could not bo shook off. The conflict was
deepening. Such a tearing about, Mr.
P. informs us, cannot bo imagined, He
was fearful that the entire batch would
infest his body. Ho pounded the door,
to give alarm to Mrs. P. Sho heard tho
same and appeared on the scene in a mo
ment. What a spectacle was presented
to her! But Mrs. P. did not do what
most women would do, scream and run
away. No; sho rallied on the rascals
with fire shovel and poker. Mr. P. went
to work, and in a short time all the rats
lay dead. Mr. Tettingill tells us there
were eighteen in all. Mwliison, (117.)
Railroads in Iowa. Iowa has met
with the same complete success in giving
its railroad commissioners general power
to hear and adjust railroad disputes as
Massachusetts. In their last annual re
port the Iowa railroad commissioners say
that not one suit at law arising from un
just or discriminating charges has leen
brought since the commissioner system
was adopted, and "the commissioners
are not aware of an instance where any
railroad company has persisted in charges
held to be unjust or discriminative by
the board." Nor is the railroad system
of Iowa a small one; it has a capital stock
of 8!tO,G12,451, a bonded debt of 70,-SU-3,795,
and the rear ending June 30 last
gross earnings of ?21,340,70y. The net
earning were 83,310,000, of which 11 per
cent was paid in taxes to the State, leav
ing less than 2 per cent, profit on the
total capital and debt, or if the debt
charge is met outside of net earnings
about 5 per cent, on the capital. The
commissioners pronounce in favor of
pooling combination among the Lastern
trunk lines, as insuring stability, gieed
and certainty. They are led to this con
clusion probably by the exceptional suc
cess of the "Iowa pool," which has regu
lated the rates for nine years to the gen
eral satisfaction of all concerned, but has
just been broken up by the withdrawal
of the Chicago and Northwestern, one of
the results apparently of the appearance
of the great Wabash combination in
Chicago trade with a claim for a share of
the business across Iowa.

The At twist as a Witness.
In a recent trial in Tennesse the Court
refused to receive a certain man's tosti
inony, on the ground that he was an
athoist. Some of tho religions papers
speak approvingly of this decision. Now,
we are willing to assent to almost any
thing that may be said or done against
atheists, but we think two opinions may
bo held regarding the wisdom of the
Tennessee judge s ruling.
Tho object of tho Court in calling wit
nesses is to arrive at a knowledge of
facts. Now, is tho word of an atheist
good for anything as a guide in our
search after acts? Is there not more
than ono atheist who may bo believed
when he tells us that ho has or has not
seen Jones this morning? That it did
or did not rain yesterday in his region'
or even on such a matter as that he will
pay his store bill on demand? No, if tho
word of an atheist may be taken by his
neigh 1 or or even a loan of monoy may
sometimes be safely made on it may not
tho Court receive it? Tho man may not
tear JJivino judgment lor perjury, hut,
nevertheless, thero are certain consider
ations which havo some influence on hi in
to lead to speak the truth. As to a be
lief in tho punishment of perjury after
death, thero are many witnesses in court
whose fears aro less regarding that than
of the penitentiary, in caso they testify
Grant that a man's credibility is im
paired by a lack of belief it a God ; his
testimony may still be taken for what it
is worth. If a witness is vory young, if
ho is underwitted, if ho is a man of had
character, if ho is strongly prejudiced
one way of tho other, tho jury may not
give the weight to his evidence they
would othorwise; but sua it is listened
to. So the testimony of an athoist may
be worth something.
As to tho suggestion that if ho doos not
behove m God ho cannot take an oath,
tho answer is that, like the Quaker, who
refuses to take an oath, he canalhrm.
In urging the rejoction of an atheist's
testimony we may be cutting off our own
noses. It may bo society and not tho
atheist that is injured. Indeed, others
than atheists are generally glad to escape
being put in the witness box, but so
ciety may suffer if they are excused from
testifying'. Tho atheist may bo the only
person who saw with his own eyes the
transactions in question. To reject his
testimony may be to lot tho criminal go
froe, to send the innocent man to prison,
to let the widow bo defrauded, to injure
not him, but those who believed in a
How Stanton Got into Lincoln's
Cabinet. Ward Lamon gives a Wash
ington correspondent this account of the
manner in which Lincoln niado Stanton
Secretary of War: In December, 18(51,
only a few months after the date of tho
Stanton letter, recently published in tho
North American Jleriew, Mr. Lincoln
was talking with Secretary Chase about
tho action of our Government in tho
'front affair. Tho President was asking
if tho Secretary had heard of any opin
ions as to tho Government's course by
prominent Democrats, when Mr. Chase
said he understood Mr. Stanton, who
was then in Washington, shared the
opinion of the President and upheld the
Government's course. The President
then asked Mr. Chase if ho had ever
heard how Mr. Stanton had abused him
(tho President) in the McCormick caso
at Cincinnati. Mr. Chaso replied that
lie had not, and the President told how
Mr. Stanton, being retained on tho same
side as Mr. Lincoln, declined to consult
with him, saying he would have nothing
to do with the "long-legged and long
armed ape." "But," said tho President,
as ho concluded the story, "tell Mr.
Stanton I would like to see him."
Within a few evenings Mr. Stanton
called at the White House. The Presi
dent told him ho had heard that his visi
tor was upholding the legality and policy
of tho Government's course. Mr. Stan
ton replied at some length, giving his
reasons for tho opinions he held. Tho
President asked him if ho would commit
it to writing. Stanton promised he
would, and this interview ended without
any other subject than the Trent affair
buing alluded to during the whole of tho
evening. It was within one or two
evenings afterwards that Mr. Stanton
called with the MS. of his opinion as re
quested. As he handed it to the Presi
dent, the latter said: "Mr. Suuiton,
there is about to be a change in my
cabinet. Will you take the place of
Secretary of War?" Mr. Stanton was
much surprised, but before ho left that
evening he bad accepted the position,
and during the next month, January,
1802, went into the office.
The Late Abyssinian Prince. The
death of the young Abyssinian Alamayu,
at Leeds, is a melancholy termination to
a career which even before it came to a
close did not lack pathetic interest. Tho
son of the late King Theodore was not a
possible successor for his father, and he
thus became, as it were, a ward of his
father's conquerors. This involved the
same difficulty which has so often pre
sented itself in similar case. Almayu
could not be left in his native country,
where he would not only have been
without the advantages of education,
which could only be given to him in
England. He was accordingly brought
to England, and there he has Buffered
the same fate as that which has been un
dergone by so many strangers to our
climate before him. The change from
the happy valleys of Abyssinia, even
though these happy valleys may lack
some of the delights once attributed to
them, to the chill and bleak air of Eng
land, has once more been too mnch for a
native of innimer lands. Prince
Alamayu was only 19 when he died, and
he was well spoken of for moral and in
terlectual qualities. Had he lived, it is
doubtful what career might have opened
itself to him. But the ill-luck of his
house pursued him, and he has fallen a
victim to it. London News, November
