The discovery of the auriferuaa nature of the soil of Califoruia, which b?a attracted to that incognita terra so many enthusiastic adven turers, has produced the groundwork of many life dramas, of an interest in comparison to which fiction sinks into beggared insignifi j cance. At the times when the tidings of the occult 1 treasures existing in California were pro ! claimed in Paris, a young resident of that vol : utile city, named M Descour, determined to I bid adieu to his family, consisting of a yount and be tu.iful wife, and an infant son, with I the' certainty of Amassing a fortune in the I modern Ophir. To bis wife the parting was like rending the ivy from the staunch tree to which its tendrils cling, and it was with the utmr*t reluctance the finally acceded to his departure, accom panvmg him to the ship, and bidding him tare well in word.-: rendered inarticulate by convulsive sobs. Reaching his destination, he forthwith went to the mines, and in abou* two months he sent to his wife, who had takei up her reMdence with her father, S20U. But, as Mrs. Hale very truly says : "Not even' flower that blossoms Diffuses sweet around; Not even scene Hope gild* with lisrht Will fair be found." 8 For the poor fellow's hopes were at once blast- I ed by the receipt of a letter, (the original, in French, we read at Judge Stuart's office,) in forming him that his wife had fallen a victim to the arts of a seducer, a former intimate friend of her husband; thnt she bad aban doned her home, and was living near by at the house of her paramour. Crushed iu spirit and wirh a broken heart, the husbaud toiled for two long years in the mines, when, having ac cumulated $10,000. he relinquiahed his toil and embarked for Prasce. Arriving at the house of his father-in law, he received another shock by the announcement of the fact that his faithless wife and her paramour had quit ted France for eomo port in South Ameii'*?, taking with them his son. He determined to Jinrsue them, aud with this riew embarked or the city of Valparaiso, whore he s?.on ar rived. But notwithstanding the uioet diligent irquiiies he did not find the fugitives there, lie went thence to Bio Janeiro, and to many other S..uth American ports, but his seare.'i was fruitless, and a few months since he ar rived iu New York de-pairing of ever fain beholding either wife or son. Ab .ut n week ago. however, while walking through William street, in tnis city, he wa< startled by meeting, face to face, his' .ong los; wife. The sudden pallor which overspread her features, and the spasmodic effort by which she preserved her presence of mind, aosuioi him that be was known, although she pa.-?e 1 him without recognition; und he, fearful that sbe might elude him. followed her to Nj 47 ll tge street, where she wa* residing with her paramour, clothing manufacturer, i amed Frederick Dippcl. A actne there ensued ?.f earnest entreaiy on his j>art, of appals to by gone days ot rosy pleasure, to earlier happi ness, to the copious tears she shed at their separation; and, on her part, of stern refusal, of disgust to his person, and a determination to continue her unweddad connection with Dippel, rather than return to him. The miserable husband, fiuding entreaty of no avail, sued out a wiit of habeas corpus, on Wednesday, btfoie City Ju.ige Stuari, in or der that be mi^ht at least obtain the guardian ship of his son, now a fine boy about seven years of age. The child was accordingly pro daced, and the mother, with a concourse of female nei-hbr rs, appeared by the Judge in his private office. The facts, as we have .-tatcd them, were admitted, but she pleaded in extenuation that her huiband had su .jeet-d her to ill treatment, which was subsequent; y proved to have been utterly false Tiie only redeeming feature of her case wa*> the remark able devotion she manifested towards her chiid. lie had evidently been the recipient of the most unwearied attention on her part, and was also mneh attached to the man with i whom she lived, always addressing them as I lather and mother. Tne peison to whom he really owed his paternity was of course a stranger to him, a^d was evidently regarded with aversion and distrust. The Judge then determinod to take a day for refloction, aud ? dh'Urned the case. Meanwhile, counter suits were brought against M Descour tor abandonment, and for ill treatment, both of which were di*missed? the plaintiff's counsel, a very skilful legal gentleman, with a very uneuphonious name, hew Snebley, proving by the author herself the falsity of the oharges Besides this trou ble, M. Dc.-ccur received a severe eastigation at the bauds of one of Dipple's employee#, because ho endeavored to obtain another ia terview with his recreant wife, in hope of moving Ltr htart to pity his forlorn condi tion. The Judge, when the case was again called, exerted all his eloquence in endeavoring toin du'^e Airs. Deseour to resumo the path of vir tue, as her husband was willing to overtook the past, and receive her again as the wife of his bosom ; but she persisted in her determin ation to continue with her paramour, and no ani<<unt of reasoning could shake her in tl is resolve. Then Judge Stuart'Bduly was plain. It only remained for him to pronounce his de cision. that the child muat be surrendered to theguardianship of its father. Wh/en the Judge delivered this decision the mother became almost wild. She claspcd the child frantically to her bosom, declaring that thty should not be parted, and the child closed his tiny nruis with all his might around his m< therms neck, and wept biUerly at the thought of parting with her and going with bis father, who, to him. was a repulsive stranger. The united shrieks of the mother and child wer? most piieous u, hear. The broken-hearted father atood on one side, betraying by his com* pressed lips and rapidly heaving b'Mum the terrible emotions which were agitating him, snd which, despite his manly exertion* gto ?uppreas them, found vent in unwilling tears The tableau presented wan deeply affecting, sj nuch so that some of the spectators, unable to witness so painful a sight, retired from the room in tears, liven the Judge betraved deep :motion; but, in view of thefaotsof the east? u view of the life of the mother?he felt it his luty, in accordance with the law, to decide as le had. Then followed the stern duty of the The arms of the child, clutching convul irely to the neck of its mother, were forcibly letached, and he was borne screaming U a larriage with his father, leaving the motl er n a state of menial agony bordering on the 'erge of insanity. Thus endeth a chaptcr in actual life, where n the gold-demon has violat**d the sanctity of . home, broken up an attached family, a-.d Irivcn a tender husband and father a wan ierer about the world.
