will be read with interest :
THE FKKS'CH GRNEHA LS MABSAL CAS
Marshal Csnrobcrt (F'rancois), who
commanris tlie nrst army corps, is over
sixty years of- age, having In-i-n bom iu
1809. His m iliary celebrity, likf that
of most of the French generals, was. com
nn i e .1 in Algeria, and wa,i perfect! i be
- oebustopal. He is ol an ancient fain
i . in Brittany, his father having been an
officer in the Royalist army of ibe Piii i .
of Conde. He also graduated al Si. Cvr,
He took part in the subjugation of Alge
ria, fighting wiih great val r and gradu
ally rising to the rank of colonel, after
cTargtTofiTie Ion ign legation of France
after tlie fall of the Carlist parly iu Spain.
At the nomination of Louis Napoleon
as President, Oanrobert joined his party.
He becsme General in the new republic,
and in the coup d'etat bad command of
one of the divisions of the army of Paris,
and assisted in the repression of the pop
ular dissatisfaction. Some political func
lions'of considerable importance were next
assigned to him, and in 1853 he became
General of division. Canrobert was sent
tn Turkey in 1854 in command of the first
division of the Army of the East. He
was at the battle of Alma, and was slight
ly wounded. Two days afterwards, whpn
St. Arnault, commander-iu-chiel ol the
French, was dying, be turned over the
command to Canrobert, who moved Im
mediately on Sebasto) al, but finding a
C0tt de main impracticable, he forthwith
laid down a plan of gigantic investment.
His mode of procedure not being satisfac
tory to Lord Raglan, the British Comman
der, Canrobert was relieved by Pelissler
from the crrmmander-iu-chiefsbip, and re
sumed duty at the head of his own corps.
In 185G he was made Marsluil of France.
Iu the French Austrian war he was at the
bead of he, third crp- He vvasatMa
genta and at Snlferino. Latterly, he has
conini-ni.lt d the troops at Paris. His vote
against the temporal power of the Pope
in 1861 must be regarded rather as a mi t
ter of military obedience or policy than of
, COUt'T DE PALtKOA "
Charles Guellaume Mnii? Cousin de
Moutanbaui Count de Palikoa, the French
General ami senator, now called to the
command of tbe second army corps, was
born on the 24th of June, 1796. He was
employed at an early age at Algiers, end
distinguished himself there n a cavahy
officer. After an eventful military career,
he was invested in 1860 with chief com
mand of the French expedition into Chi
na, and bad the honor of accomplishing
that almost fabulous invasion, which
brought the arms and banners of the
French and English even to the capital
of this vast and distant empire. The cap
ture of the forts of Takou, at the mout!i
of the Pciho, on the 20th of August, the
great victory of Palikoa, over Geuctai
aug ko-hio-in on the 21st of September
tbe destruction of the royal palace,' the
entry into Pekin on the 12th of October,
forced the Chinese to accept the treaty
imposed by the allies, and assured, at least
temporarily, the respect of European in
terests in the extreme East. S In recom
pense for these great successes the Empe
ror had already elevated him to the dig
nity of the Grand Cross of tbe Legion of
Honor on the 26th of December, 1860.
and had made him senator on the 4th ot
Much, 1861. He was subsequently
made Count de Palikoa, was pensioned,
and in 1865 took command of the fourth
army corps at Lyons wheu Canrobert was
called to Paris .In I860, when he was
given the grand cross, be could; count forty-two
years of effective service, twenty-

The plans laid down, fry him were carried

Albert Theodore Emilo de Roon, the
W-mer" auu umirMri , unm uui.rii. iTrjo.i,
1803, was educated at the miliary school
and entered the army as sn officer
1821. After having, from 1824 to 1827,
pursued the higher courses of the gener
al military school,' he was employed as a
teacher in that of the cadets at Berlin.
Subsequently he became attached to tbe
topographical bureau, then to the staff,
and iu 18.06 was made major-general. He
held successively various commands since
1848, and accomplished many important
missions. He was charged, on two occa

especially in 1859, when Prnssia wss pre
paring to intefe:e in the war of Italian in

of Bonn ; called on the 16th of April,
1861j to the Ministry of the Marine. Ge
neral de Roon took besides, on the 5tb of
December in the same year, the portfolios

He-nartly realized these projects, in spite
of the opposition of the majority in the
Chamber of Deputies, against which he
contended in concert with M. de Bismarck.
His name from that-time- is prominent in
the history of the extensive modifications
of Germany, accomplished t the profit of
Prussia by the torce ol her arms or the

8UDDEN DEATH WHILE BATH

A dispatch published yesterday an

duffe, and alleged as the eaoae lbs

cord has tbe following statement ia i
tion to the sad affair t
Miss Kate, daughter of Dr. Robert til
duffe, residing on Spruce Street,, was
drowned whilo bathing in the large pool
ton, she, in company with two or three
friends, proeteded to the establishment
for the purpose of indulging in the exer
cise of swimming. The unfortunate young
lady .entered the water from the sWpe
leading into it, and, after swimmins a-
round for a couple of minutes, eanght
hold of a handhold pending from the curb
of the pool. At this moment, one of bt-r
companions swimming by, said t "Kate,
bow sick yon look : yon bad better ao
out.'-' Io a moment after this, Miss Kails
let go her hold and sank beneath the sax
face One of the proprietors observing
tbe sad event, immediately plunged into
the pool and brought the body to the sar
fsce, but life appeared to be extinct.
There was a slight effusion of blood at the
nose and mouth, indicating that death
was produced by congestion of the brain,
caused, in consequence of the young la
dy, while in an overheated atate, going
too suddenly into the cold water. Sever

skill could command wi s resorted tn, bat

Sharon is one of the most exquisite flow
ers in shape and hne. Its blossoms are
bell-shaped, and of many mingled hues
and dyes. But its history is legendary
and romantic in the highest degree. In
the East, thronghout Syria, and Arabia,
it is regarded with the prbfoundest rever
ence. The leaves that encircled tbe round
blossom dry and close tight together when
the reason of blossom is over, and tha
Stalk withering completely away from the
stem, the flower is blown away, at last,
from the bush, on which it grew, having
dried up in shape of a ball, which is car
ried by tho sport of the breeze to great
distances. In this way it is borne over
the sandy wastes and deserts, until al
last, touching some moist place, it clings
to the soil, where it immediately takes
fresh root and springs to life and beauty
again. For this very reason the Orien
tals have adopted it as the emblem of the
resurrection. The dried flower is placed
in a vn.se of water beside the beds of tbe

it expands by moisture the omen is "con
sidered favorable. If it does "hot, the
worst is at all times feared.
