She was therefore more asto Bished than alarmed, when early on the next morning a French aid-de-camp waited waited upon her with a request from the commander in chief that she would repair immediately to the Hotel de Ville. Without a word of inquiry or remonstrance she arose, took her child in her arms, and fol lowed the messenger of the General. Led to the council-chamber at the moment of her arrival, Madame H. found herself surrounded by all the glories of the republi can army; by those celebrated men for whom such wondrous destiuies were re served ; by whom crowns were to be won and lost, and of whom, in after years, so many were to lose on battle fields, amid the intrigues of cabinets, or the corruptions of a court, the honor for which they now were panting, or the lives they were now so ready to p...

DAILY EVENING STAR. "THE IHF1DEL XOTHEB." by fanny fern. Can it be! can you look back Into the depths of those clear/blue eyes, that seek yours in such confiding innocent trust; can you deck those dimpled limbs, " fearfully and wonderftilly made ?" can you watch with him the first faint streak of light, that ushers in another hapy day ? can you paint out to Him the gold and purple sunset glory ? can you look upward with him to the shin ing host T or place in his eager hand the field of flowers that bend their dewy eyes with grateful thanks and never name " Our Father!" When at dead of night you watch beside his sick couch; when you hush your every breath to listen to his pained moans; when every gust of wind makes your cheek grow pale; when you turn with trembling hand the healing drops; when every tick of the clock seems beating against your heart, when the little pallid face looks beseeching ly into yours, for the " help" you cannot give; oh! where can you turn the suppliant eye, ...

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1853. slectioh op judges. We spoke, in a late number of the Star, of the great value to the people of an elect ive judiciary. The more we read and reflect upon the subject the more thoroughly are we impressed with the great national im portance of the interests involved. Since the appearance of our article we notice one in the Pennsylvanian touching the same point, in which it is stated that there is "a proposition now before the Massachusetts Convention for revising the constitution of that State, that all officers should be elected by the people except the judicial." We are inclined to think that the Penn sylvanian is in error with regard to this proposition. It is our impression that one of the requirements of that State Conven tion involves this question of the election of Judges by the people. But admitting that our cotemporary is correct as to the fact, we must cordially admit the force of his reasoning, wherein he says: "Why this ex...

A gentleman of Milwaukie furnished 11s with the following interesting narrative of one of those real struggles of the young, to assist their parents, which sparkle like diamonds along the pathway of human life. In traits like these there is a natural hero ism manifested. Which marks the pure gold of human character. Business called me to the United States land office; while there, awaiting the com pletion of my business, a lad appearently about sixteen or seventeen years old came in, and presented to the receiver a certifi cate of purchase for forty acres of land. I was struck with the countenance and gene ral appearance of the lad, and inquired for whom he was purchasing the land; his reply was. "For myself, sir." I then inquired where he got the money ; he answered. "I earned it by my labor." "Then," said I, "you richly deserve the land." I then inquired, "where did you come from ?" "New York," said he.

EVENING STAR* SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 1853. SUCCESS OF THE STAB. It is with great pleasure we announce the continued accessions to the daily subscrip tion lists of this paper. Considering the disadvantages we have had to contend with, arising from a great variety of causes, and especially from the course pursued by the Telegraph?taking into account the compe tition made by the tact, industry, talent, and large pecuniary means of our contem poraries of the Monumental City?we have certainly much reason to be thankful to the citizens of Washington, Georgetown, and Alexandria for the generous patronage thej have bestowed upon us. Within a short time past, more particu larly, our advertising patronage ? alwayj the life of a paper, as the plan of advertis ing is ever the main spring of business ii every community?has made a rapid in crease.

The appointment of persons from the States to fill offices of this kind in the District, seldom meets with the approval of our citizens.

es-=s???=a?s= DAILY EVENING STAB. A PROPER nTTBODUCTION. How much trouble and embarrassment have been cansed in this world for want of a proper introduction. Two strangers meet are simply introduced by a mutual friend, who, after the presentation, walks away, and leaves them to entertain each other in the best manner they can. Most probably neither of them understood each other's name. They have no topic in common ; the silence is becoming embarrassing ; and, after a powerful racking of brains, one of them desperately launches forth upon some subject of general interest, ardently espous es the popular opinion, condemns the other, and discovers, after he has finished the ap palling truth, that the person to whom he has been unfolding% his sentiments, is a prominent supporter, perhaps one of the prime movers of the opposite side of the question. In the introduction, even the mere names of the parties is not sufficient. Some men tion should be made of the family of the person to whom y...

EVENING STAR. MONDAY, MAY 2, 1853. OAS IN THE CANAL. Having occasion to take an early walk this morning aiong the banks of the Canal, for a considerable distance, we could not foil to notice the offensive odor that is dis tributed so freely on its waters by the Gas Company of this city. What our friends had informed us of, by means of what they knew, our own olfactories convinced us was true. We never met a more disgusting or disgraceful thing of the kind, and we mean henceforth to call to it the attention of the public until the nuisance is removed. Along the whole line of the canal from the Potomac to the Anacostia, the Washing ton Gas Company is in the constant practice of emptying its refuse gas. Twice in the day, and twice'during the night, as the tide of the two rivers rises, falls and flows through the Canal, this turbid stream of offal gas rolls along through the very heart of the city. The higher the tide rises the more rapidly it passes through the Canal, the more agitated...

A worthy and industrious man was yes terday engaged in the laudable work of obtaining readers and patrons for the paper just started in Washington to aid the work ing classes, called the "National Advocate." He called on one of o it citizens, and pre sented the claim in a modest manner, mere ly asking a little subscription of three cents a week, or twelve cents a month, in aid of the workingaien's paper. "No!" replied the gentleman, "I have no time to attend to such things." We do not know the individual from whose lips emanated that remark. It is beyond our knowledge whether he is rich or poor, in office or out of office, learned or ignorant, bond or free. There may, also, be some extenuating circumstances of which we are not informed, that may tend to pre sent the matter in a somewhat different as pect.

DAILY EVENING STAR. HOMELESS NED. It was oil the latter part of a cold, cheer less day in autumn, that a ragged, pale faced urchin of some twelve years old might have been seen loitering about on one of the principal wharves of Boston. He was alone, and as his dull eye wandered rest lessly from one object to another, a deep sigh escaped his lips, and the word "home less" fell upon the air. The individual that I have brought before the reader's view was Ned?Homeless Ned. He had been seeking employment, but no one had hired him. He had asked alms, but no one bestowed aid ; for those of whom he asked charity deemed him but a lazy, thieving vagabond, and considered it their duty not to encourage, by their aid, such a dangerous fellow. But Ned was no thief ? He either received a sixpence or so for doing some little job which enabled him to procure food, or he asked alms. Night was fast coming on?a cold, stormy night. He felt very cold and hungry; yet he still lingered upon the wharf. It ...
