Suddenly the protege an- nounced to the school-mistiess and her intimate friends, that she was about to be married, under the auspices of her patroness, to a young Lieutenant Colon- el, to whom she had been introduced by her Royal Highness, and in evidence of the truth of her assertions, produced let- ters on the subject, with the seal of the Pi iuccss, and in a hand-writing which all acquainted with that of Madame Adelaide believed to be hers. Subse- quent letters were also displayed, in which her Royal Highness was made to state, first, that the intended husband was detained away by his regimental that he was dangerously ill, and ultimately that he was dead and buried. The young lady then gave her- self up to such violent grief, that fears were entertained for her own life. The only consolation she would listen to, was the permission to put herself in the mourning of a widow, and go to weep over the tomb of her first lover. The un- der governess accompanied her to the cernctry of Pere la Chaise, and at the OLl I'lli, the place of interment of Lieut. Count a year before at the r.go of twenty From the ft. 0. Picayune. Sports of the Field. Fun on the a Ca- tastrophe, MOBILE, August 9, 1642. Dear room for the follow- ing bit of fun and oblige half a dozen of us here. A rare and unusual piece of hunting sport came off near town the other day. Two young sportsmen were returning on horseback to the city after enjoying a hunting excursion to one of the watering places, when they observed in the read a small and beautifully formed animal, marked black and white, with a fine bushy tail. One immediately pronoun- ced it a black squirrel, while the other as confidently swore it was a coon, both agreeing, however, that it was exceed- ingly handsome: and as it seemed re- markably quite indiffer- ent about leaving the both lin'tVi fl-vrs i f A tn catch it. One picked up a forked stick, and commenced a cautious doubling and winding, m order to get near and pin the Hack squirrel to the ground. He remarked that he was anxious to secure the beautiful little animal alive, as be- ing so tame, he thought it would make a novel and interesting pet for a lath'. At this point the interest of the sport became quite high and peculiarly exci- ting; indeed, for novelty no incident like it may be found among the annals of the sporting world. Our hero was soon near enough to strike, and with an ad- mirably well directed blow lie pinned his prey to the ground with the forked stick. Whew is it In the name of horror.' what came otto of Now, if the quality of game is to be judged through the medium of the ol- factories, we are confident here would have been pvritoment for tlxo g nomical organs of a ban vivant such as may not be found every day. The way those two sportsmen ran, and the way the odors strongly opposite to those of "Araby the or of The sweet South _l are still clinging around them, must be in every way curious to mcntic'J!

This an- swer inci cased the despair of the young lady, who picvailed upon the attendant to lici totlic cciiielricsof Piiiih, at eaoh of which they met with the- like disappointmcnt. It was night before they returned home, and the stricken pup'il retired to rest in deeper despair than ever. The governess, the next clay, felt it to be her duty to go to Madame Adalaide and relate all these mournful circumstances, taking with her the let- ters announcing the events which had so entirely destroyed the peace of her pupil The astonishment of the Princess on hearing the extraordinary narrative, and at secing letters apparently in her own hand-writing, but which she had never written, and recognizing impres- sions from a seal which did really be- long to her, could not be described. No such person as Lieutenant Count M. was known to her Pvoyal Highness, con- sequently she never could have contem- plated any such alliance for her pupil, or announced to her his illness or death. In fact, the young lady had been induced by a morbid" imagination, to invent the whole purloin one of her patro- ness's seals, imitate her hand-wnting, compose the fictitous letters, and by unuiug an OKI am, muuee nei to pin them into the Her mind, however. was affected with the same grief, from her own deliberate invention, as if all the circumstances had really existed.

Azrael, the Angel of Death, sat in si- lence upon his gloomy throne, shrouded in a veil of mist, sad. cheerless and de- sponding The revelry that once filled hisdreary hallshad passed away. Beau- ty and youth no longer attended his le- vee, the aged and infirm alone peopled his dominions. The cries of widows and orphans were heard no more; and the music of their shrieks had ceased to regale his ears. Azrael was troubled and enraged. He saw that the number of his visitants had greatly decreased, and none of his attendants could divine the cause. He brooded over it some days, but could not satisfy himself by any theory he assumed, or any process of reasoning he adopted. A darker frown gathered upon his awful brow, a deeper shade settled upon his terrible countenance that never relaxed into a smile, but when some leil disease was depopulating the earth and peopling his realm, such as the cholera or the plague. His mightiest exertions had been put forth, his most successful ministers nad been commissioned to destroy, and yet but little addition had been made to the number of his subjects. Fever returned lo him in a rage at his unsuccessful ex- ertions, and his prime minister, consump- tion, came back, pallid with disappoint- ment. Influenza had lost his influence, and the ague could shake no one but himself. Azrael felt that his skill was baffled, that his ingenuity was completely foiled that his power was curbed and confined by some potent charm, some powerful opponent, such as the world had never before witnessed, such as he had never before hud to contend with. Ho determined to visit the earth, to concentrate his energies, and make another and a mightier effort to regain the power lip ln-3 Culling around him the most distinguished of his coun- sellors he imparted to them his design, and commanded their assistance. Then unfolding his heavy wings he rose from his throne and flew to the earth, with a long train of attendants. The ravages nf niconco etill tnTin but their evidences were nearly oblite- rated. New attempts were constantly made by his ministers under his direc- tion, but failed in almost every instance. He inquired into the causes of his bad success and traced them in every to the laboratoiy of Bristol, whose potent medicines were proof against the subtlest of his contrivances, and the combined energies of his attendants. lie saw a beautiful young woman res- cued from the grasp of consumption, when he thought her already his own, and he beheld his favorite, influenza overcome in a fair struggle. Dyspepsia fared no better, and the ague was com- pletely powerless. A free use of the Extract of Parsaparilla had secured the inhabitants from all kinds of diseases. Azrael accused his attendants of cow- ardice and stimulated them to new ef- forts. They collected all their energies ana renewed the attack, but they were in most instances repulsed with ease, and though in some cases the contest was more protracted, it was seldom 1 nrcl ITI (be end tTifv riably discomfited. Old and young, male and female, rich and poor were alike protected from their assaults by this in- valuable remedy, and Azrael was obliged to abandon the struggle, and rally his scattered forces for a retreat to his own dominions. Consumption had worked himself to a skeleton, influenza had wheezed him- self hoarse, and the ague had shook him- solf into fits m his service, and vet noth- ing had been eliecteu, iiosy cheeks and jobust foims met his eye wherever he gazed. To his indescribable horror he heard that the same powerful medi- cine was, extending its sway to the most distant parts of the valley of the Missis- sippi, and that wherever it went, his emissaries were expelled the country, and Ins Influence destroyed.
