SLANDER BY A PEERESS A curious action at law wag tried at tbo recent Assizes, in Derby, (England,) in which no less a personage than the onco fashionable and beautiful Countess of Haerinoton figured as defendant. This lady is not to bo confounded with the Dowager-Countess, widow of tho lato Earl of Habrinqton, and formerly well known, in the annals of gallantry and the stage, as the Miss Foote who was very basely treated by that remarkable reprobate, Colonel Beesceley, now Earl Fitzhabdinoe, and (at the last accounts) supposed now to be on his death-bed. Tha present Countess would not look across the street, we dare say, for fear of encountering her sister-in-law, who had naughtily been an actress, and, notwithstanding her stage and other antecedents, had been most exemplary as a wife. Tho ex-actress, on the of her hand, might truly boast, that, even if she had boen a sinner, she had not slandered her neighborpassing off, all the time, fora saint of the first wfttj»r. A cler...
