Bloomsburg Democrat (Newspaper) - March 30, 1839, Bloomsburg, PennsylvaniaUnpublished passages in tub life of to Doc the French minister of strange discovery. To ibb we a some few yes re ago in one of the Street leading from the Rue St. Honor an hotel known by the Neme of the Renard do or. It docs not exist it the present Day but at the time i am speaking of was much freq noted by Persona from the Smith of France who came to Paris with the intention of stopping a few Days. A to angst the Persona who were in the habit of residing there during their slay in our Metropolis War a Madame Launay the widow of a Rich banker of Bordeaux who came every year for the purpose of receiving her dividends and transacting such other Bua Ineas As circumstances might require. On her arrival late one evening from Bordeaux she waa informed by the Landlady of the Renard do or with a profusion of of stogies that unless Madame would for once put up with a Small room containing two Beds she should be unable to accommodate her. To this Madame Launay replied she had no objection for a few Days As Julio her waiting woman could Scop in tha same room Ana when Opportunity offered they might be better accommodated. The hostess curtsied assent and Madame Launay was shown to her apartment where after partaking of some slight refreshment she with her maid very soon retired to to lipid separate Beds and in profound sleep forgot the fatigue of their journey and the comparative Inco Vience of their lodgings. In the Middle of the night Julio awoke and finding her Mouth parched from the still feverish exch Emoni of the journey got oat of bed to obtain a draught of water from the dressing Tahle. As Nadaine Launay always slept with a Candle in her room she Hau no difficulty in finding the water and was returning into bed when her Eye fell upon a handsome travelling cloak which was lying bedside of her mistress. This Julie had admired during the whole of the journey and As it had been sent Home but a few hours previous to their leading Bordeaux had escaped the Fate of the rest of her mistresses a Wiroba which was usually tried on by her previous to being delivered. The Opportunity was not to be resisted the Candle Burnt opposite a Long Glass so that she could try it on to the Best advantage. A a a really 1 do look extremely Well in it Quot said she standing first on one Side and then on the other to see herself to More advantage Quot and this Bonnet too is very becoming. I really wonder the men Are so devoid of taste As to Sutler me to continue still unmarried Quot and with a High she dropped the cloak and Bonnet Tript into bed Aad in a few minutes was dreaming of some favored Swain throwing himself at her feet and with most becoming Importunity pressing her to name the Happy Day. Her dreams were so delightful that she would have willingly continued them much longer had not the Sun which shone with All the brightness of a Clear summer s Day warned her it was time to get up and prepare Fot her mistress s rising. She could net refrain from glancing towards the object which had been the source of Sueh pleasing reveries but Nanch to her astonishment the cloak was no where to be seen. She searched All Over the room without Success a could her mistress have been awake and meant his a a hint for her vanity. She looked toward her bed to see if she were then awake and enjoying her her mistress seemed to be asleep. She must then have hid the cloak in the bed. She gently turned Down the clothe to see if her suspicion were and to her Honor beheld the bed deluged with blood. Her mistress had been murdered during Tho night by Home one who had struck her to the heart and so truly had the blow been Given that she had expired without making noise Sulli cheat to awake even her fellow lodger. Julie by her a creams brought several persons a it the room to ascertain the cause amongst whom was the Landlady Wiio was to alarmed for Tho respectability of her establish mint that she declared none but Julie could have committed the atrocious act and despite of her repeated protestations of innocence called in the police who barely give the poor girl time to dress before they hurried her off w in Sony to contemplate Alons 011 the misfortune that bad befallen herself and mistress. Julio found her situation far from an enviable one to to looked upon by the world As the murderess of her mistress was revolting enough by itself besides which there appeared but Little Hope that she should escape being found so by those who were to decide her site since she could not but confess to herself that suspicion were strongly against her. It was strange Vety strange she thought the Moro so of she would not even Hazard a conjecture As to the Teal offender who had without doubt to contrived As to throw Ibe whole suspicion upon her. though strongly against her were not so conclusive As she herself i imagined for in her numerous examinations before the judge a a she had in no one instance Pretari rated and on her trial Thore was much to her favor to counterbalance the suspicions of her guilt. It was proved that she had been High in her mistress a Confidence having free Access to her Money and valuables of that she might have executed any robbery she had meditated without adding to it the crime of murder which would have brought on instant detection. Madame Minay s friends too with on arc Ord expressed their belief in her strict integrity and declared they were themselves convinced of her innocence from her often proved affection towards her mistress which would alone Hare rendered her incapable of such an set. All this had due weight with the jury who stated their unanimous opinion of her perfect innocence of the imputed crime. Though absolved from All participation in Tho murder by the Laws of her county Julie was a girl of too much spirit to suffer the least Shadow of guilt to Hong around her if by her unceasing end avots she could bring the truth to Light and Day after Day and month after month she lingered in Paris in Hopes of finding some clue to Trace out the murderer. But time wore fast a any and she had been nearly a year pursuing her Endeavor without having advanced s single step towards Success and began to ear she must give up All Hopes of successfully Clearing herself from the suspicions still entertained by Many and leave it to the action of time which she Felt convinced must eventually bring the offender to Justice. Having occasion Ono Day to go a Short distance from Paris a he went to champs Ely secs with the intention of going by one of Tho Hack Carriles which generally Start from there and Are More moderate in their charges than the regular coaches. She was much import Ned by two men to go by their conveyance which was ready to Start a soon As the last space was occupied but not liking either the appearance of the men or their Carriage Sho refused and gave the preference to lie second in the rank not being so much pressed for time As to mind a few minutes delay. This gave great offence to the men who immediately began to play off Tho artillery of their Small wit against her no less to their own than their passengers amusement who were rather nettled at the delay. A a Guillaume Quot said one Quot the lady thinks you done to look sufficiently like a gentleman to be honoured with her company Why done to you Brush up your hair and place your hat m a More elegant style and then when she Cornea this Way next time perhaps Shell go with a a Why Quot replied the of for Quot i think 1 am sufficiently elegant to have the Honor of escorting a wailing woman in a cabriole a a waiting Louian indeed to give herself such a a Aye Guillaume but pretty women Home itunes fancy themselves Router persons than they arc. Quot pretty yes Matni Seile is pretty to be sure Quot said the other and assuming a mincing Lone of voice added Quot 1 wonder the men Are so devoid of taste As to suffer her to continue still this seemed to please them both beyond measure for they burst out into an immoderate fit of laughter which was Only finished by some one coming up to take the vacant place and As Mihov drove off they seemed repeating the Sally in order to have a re enjoyment of their mirth. Strange indeed thought Julie to herself these Are the very word i used when admiring myself in the Glass on that fatal night. How could they have known them 1 never mentioned them to any one Nevei a and Elm tried to remember if she had so done but could not bring to mind that they had Over escaped her lips. 1 will go and mention the circumstance to Mona. Vidocy who has hitherto no kindly assisted to in my endeavours and on pretence of finding herself Loo unwell to continue her journey u she had intended left the cabriole and came instantly to me in order to ask my opinion concerning the menus conversation. I thought As she had done that it was strange they should repeat her very words and that hey must know something More of the business than they ought at any Rale i would secure Tho men and see if any thing could to elicited from them. 1 went with Julie and some of my men to await at Tho champs Elysee the return of the cabriole. It was not Long before it came Back and out jumped the two men ready for another excursion. Thev did not is first perceive the company who were waiting their arrival but on teeing Julie a seized rather surprised at her being still there. Afterwards when they beheld me both turned Pale As death Ana stammered out something about a a hey hoped they had not offended the Young lady by any thing they had said Anil were very sorry if they had done i told them on the contrary that tha lady was pleased with their conversation that she wished to enjoy it More at Leisure and As i had heard so flattering an account of their abilities in that Way 1 should feel muck pleasure at a future time enjoying a Tete a Tele with them Payseu and in the mean time would see that they had proper accommodation and attendance in their lodgings to which Ray assistants would feel proud to conduct them. 1 went afterwards with Julie to their lodgings and found several things were Iden. Lifted by her As having belonged to Madame Launay and which on their examination they were unable to account for the posses Aion of. But to to Brief there were Many came out against them which i left but Little doubt of their being the guilty parties. The words they Hail inn de use of the things belonging to my Dante Launay Sod their being a Ruble to account in airy Way for themselves on Tho night in it Lues Ion were Strong proofs against them. Tit by were found guilty and Rondem Nad to expiate their crime at the place do previous to their execution they confessed that one of them had before Madame Lnu a syn a arrival got unperceived into the hotel and hid himself under one of the Beds in the room where she had slept and that it was there lie had seen Julie admiring herself in the Glass and heard the expressions she had made use of. He further confessed having after she had retired to bed risen very gently and let in his companion their intention being Only to Rob the Robin of As much As they could conveniently carry a Way with them but Madame Launay having awoke during their operations and fearing she might give the alarm they had murdered her in self defence. There is but Little doubt that had they been Wise enough to have kept their own secret they would have succeeded in eluding detection for they had Prudenco sufficient when they found the murder had created a great sensation in Paris to abstain from Selling any of the stolen things and had destroyed Hose they thought most Likely to he recognised but the desire of showing off a Little supposed wit threw them off their guard and was the Means of bringing them to that Justice they had so outrageously offended.
