A gross misrepresentation against them* having been published in the Petersburg Intelli gencer and Baltimore Sun to the effect that they were closed for the season is now traced to an Ir responsible source unworthy of notice. It is proper to state that there is no shadow of foundation for it. The subscriber trusts that he wifl not be made the victim of such malignity; and the respectable journals which have given currency to the rumor by transferring it to their columns will disabuse the public mind through the same medium.

AN ATFAHt OT THE HEART. { From the Correspondence of the N.O. Pkaycne ] Paris. July 11. 1355 A case of most romantic interest has latelj been pending before one of the French oivil tribunals?a cam which will be road with avidity by those who believe in the enduranef i.f deep-seated, sure-enough lore. 1 thinli 'that the lacts of the pre*?ut case will wel, repay a perusal, and therefore give a couden sation. Sixty-five year* a*o. or in 1790, a younp Englishman naniel William Auieriou, whv was possessed of considerable fortune, madt what was rare in those days?a continental tour?and in the course of hi* wanderings vis ited *.fe eld city of Nancy. Tner* he bccasi 'acqnuiuted with a y >ung Irish wjma., bl<>oui ing and beautiful a* a matter of c<urse, whos? n.-ra* was Catharine Burthe; sue wan th? <iau. bier of gime-kecper of the Prinv* dt Comie, and the ardent young Anderson CC3' ceived such a violent passion for her that h? /ow?;d that he wmld never think of mar?yin| icy one else. These facta, it should be uoviur stood, hnve beer. bfvrbt out in a cold c.u 1 of justice. an-1 uhv* nev-r been recorded oi the warui pages ot a BuTtl. The p >liticKl disturbances whiea broke ou' about this period drove y u..g Andiron h<?mt to Engirtnd but did n<.t drive nis love foi Catnaiine Burthe from his head?far from it. lie wrote numerous letters to the game-keep er s daughter- a.11 breathing the depth of hi: a.tta:hment; he did nor;?he sent her remit tancts of money ; but war soon bresking out. ail bis epistles and drafts were intercepted, nor coula he ever receive any tidings of hi< loved oue. Oa the establishment of peace in 1S15, oi twenty five year* afterwards, the more thar middle-aged William Anderson, with tb< tlame of love burning at> fierc*ly as eve:, hur ried over to France, and pr"ceodcd |><?st-haaU t-> Nancy ; buf tber: he o>uld learn no tiding: of Catharine Burthe ; she ha 1 departed, but no one could tell when or where. For tw?ntj years, or until lS'io, he continued to seek hei; ho ttuck to it with a pertinacity that would have tired out Jnphet in *e:?r?-h of a lat'aer? but without success, lie ? mployed the police, ho set secret agents to work, he hunted up and down himself, but the tra-k of the lady no one could discover. At length Mr. Anderson tried the benefit* of advertising. A notice was inserted in the Journal de la M< urthe, m l to hi> inexpressi ble delight it was answered by Catharine her self. He hurried off to see her; he was burn ing to embrace his lon^-lost Catharine ; hut when ho reached her residence, he found that she whs Catharine Burthe no more' She hid been M'rne. Catharine de Titifm-Lenenville fur more than lorty years, and was a grand nwtiur ! Acre was a blow, and a hard one. to a per son who had lived and loved as long nnd as r rdently as Mr William Anderson. and in the first sad moments of his cruel disap(H>iutmjnt he started back for England. Bat there h ? found out that, notwithst im'ing he ha 1 ar rived at the mature snddiscreet ng?* of seventy odd, his passion was unabated, and-in the ex trtmity of bU undying love he wrote aud de manded permission to live near his ancient fl. ine. ?:hi.s prayer was allowed, and from that period to his death, which <>ccurred a lew years ciace. he Lai the satisfaction of breath lag tie air of the same neighborhood, to look upon pretty much the same hills, \a!lc>s, and tree*, ami to move about generally in the midst of tho same t-urrouaciings?the suu: tv tal. as near as can be ascertained, of all the satisfaction or gratification the old man hid. it is ditheuit to coueeive a more romantic case of enduring attachment; but how wa> it brought to light? Throa^h the law. It v-erns that ou iire>t ascertaining that his beloved C ithaiino was a grandmother, Mr. i?>r. made a will givii.g all hi* property tu .? ncuhcw of the nae?e, but aft- r rcslli^ for a apace in her vicinity, be chafed his :uiad, revoked his former will, out off his nephew, arid bequeathed everything to his undent fl iu.e. The nephew has made eveiy attempt, through tho prope. courts, to have the will broken; but it has been il that claim of Madaia? Xuiion^L aicnvilT^ 'Hit Catharine Lurthe, w?- perfectly valid. Sueh is love, at limes, and tuch is law. Tho Cit7 of Siotcow. ^ There is one gate tu the kremlin, called tho Spass Vurata. On going inr >u^h this gate, if the tbcniljnstcr were 30 de,*tr bel w terr>, the Emporor would be o -inpelle l t> t?ke off hib liac, i.nd keep it off all the way No one is allowed to go tlirougu covered, and d -gs arc not allowed to p:iss at all.
