It ia seldom you pee so much grace and nobleness united to wit and learn ing The Emperor wishes to marry and at tach him to the Court." ?41 have only had a glimpse of him. lie ha3 many personal advantages, but' "Don't make a hasty application of your system tu him " 1 My judgments are founded only on obser ration, and as yet I have not examined him with sufficient attention to be very positive; 1 but a handsome exterior ia not always indica tive of good and eminent qualities.'' " As for him I give bim up to your olosest scrutiny. Analyze his features; feel what you call his osseous protuberances, and I tm quite sure you will think with me, that a lof tier soul was never enshrined in a more beau* tiful body." " Perhaps 80." This conversation took place at a magnifi cent ball given at Vienna, by Prin-e Metter nich There were assoiubled all the person age? of the Austrian Court most di-tinguUhed for rank and fortune ; all the embassadors of the European powers; all the high officers f the crown, covered with rich embroideries and orders; a crowd of charming women, y* ung, elegant, and graceful, sparkling with diamonds, and dressed with tho greatest splendor. Amidst c 11 these noble persona, the Princes de Corphony, through whom Metter nich hoped to gain Alexander s particular friendship and good will, was very conspicu ous ; but young Count de Rcinburg, who.-e brilliant exterior, high rank, and amiable qualities had, in so short a time, made him a universal favorite with the fashionable socie ty of Vienna, attracted even more attention and remark than the Princess The CoU'it had left bis fine Bohemian estate, and ap peared lor the first time at Francis's court, to whom he came to render homage as bis sov ereign. Metternich had already marked him as his own. The first of the speakers was a man of about forty, whose person, though effeminate, was very prepossessing. He had an expanded forehead, a well-shaped noee, large blue eyte. and an agreeable mouth, around which an enchanting amile always played at command His manner was winning, and put you at your ease in a minute. Perfectly self-possessei oq all occasions, he knew how to mingle in the dissipations and follies of the great, but al ways with the determination ol profiting by them. The second, although more than fifty years of age. had all the vigor and boldness of youth. His forehead, already bald, was high and open ; his manly features announced habits of deep thought and decision. This was the celebrated l>r. Gall, the illustrious physiologist; his interlocutor wa* Prince Met ternich, Prime Mini-ter to the Emperor of Austria. According to his custom, the Prince had retired, in the middle of the fete, into the solitude of his closet, in order to despatch s-me business Gall remaining alone, and ?truck with the warm partiality displayed not only by M :tiemi<-h, but the whole cour*.. for the young Count, was determined to watch him closely during the whole evening As tho Count de Keinburg was finishing a minuet which he danced with th?s beautiful Princess de Schwinett, and, during which, every one had crowded around to admire his easy, graceful and elegant manners, the Priuoe, who had returned to the saloon, and stood behind Dr. Gall, tapped him lightly on the shoulder: | "Well," said he, "have you scrutinized him narrowly ' Are you not now convinctd that the Count is a paragon of perfection ''' Gall drew the Prince aside, without reply, and, when they were out of the circle : ?' Your paragon, Prince," exolaimed he " is a monster !" ' liySt Mary ! Doctor," rejoined the Prince, with a smilf, " you cannot be serious, or your system must be false." " You are incredulous?but wait: time will show which of us right." # * # * * Some years after this, a horrible and un parallelled crime spread dismay throughout Germany. The criminal was sentenced to be degraded from all his titles and dignities, and afterwards to be beheaded. Tho sentence was put into execution. It wa*the brilliant Count de Keinburg ' Two months after the ball given by Prince Metternich, and in which he had figured so conspicuously, the young nobleman had mar ried the heiress of one of the riohest and most illustrious families of Hu gary. Young and charming, she had but just made her appearance at Court, when the Emperor dis posed of her hand ; with her free consent, it is true, for she had not been able to behold the Count, without feeling for him the prefer ence which all other women gave him. Im mediately after his marriage, the Count re tired to a distant estate, wishing, as he said. In enjoy, without constraint, his newly foULd happiness The first three years were happy ones ; the birth of two children still increased their felicity. The Count lived in the closest seclusion, visiting neither relations nor friends, nor per mitting any one to enter the castle. His wife, without having any open ground of complaint, found him cold, reserved and severe; a gloomy frown frequently settled upon his features. Although he never spuke a harsh word to, or struck one of his vassais, they always retired from, or trembled at his appearance. He had but one pleasure, which was the chase. In all seasons of the year, be gave himself up to it with equal and indefatigable ardor, rhe deer was his favorite object of pursuit He was extremely dissatisfied when the animal was killed outright, and wished only to have it crippled; his delight then was to satiate himself with the sight of its agouies. as it was torn in pieces by the hounds. When the struggle was protracted, and the death-rattle loud and prolonged, a singular smile animated his features, and he was cheerful for the re mainder of the day. If the hunt had afford ed him no gratification of this kind, be maWe his dogs fight, and allowed no interference till one was disabled If they tried to run away, he pitilessly killed them with his own hanil 1 These eccentricities, however, did not seem more strange than tho?e of many other Hun- ? garian nobles. who resided on their estates, j and kept aloof from the eourt. The Count, moreover, was very liberal, and even profuse, ( to all who approached him. , During the last two or three months, he had , attached a surgeon to his establishment, be cause he was determined that, for the future, - no stranger should come near the castle. The 1 surgeon was largely paid, and had no othtr ' duty than to atteud to the health of the in habitants of the manor, but be had been en p med by the Count to bavo as little inter courao as possible with any other persout; 1 and, particularly, to obaerve profound secre sy as to all circumstances, however unimpor tant, that might take place on the estate One afternoon the Count returned to tbe castle after an unsuccessful hunt, his looks were more than usually gloomy. Without changing his dress, or taking refreshment, aa was his daily custom, he hastened up to bis wife's apartment. Htr little children, her only pleasure and consolation woro around her. She immediately rose, and rushed to embrace him.

The Count continued his usual life Every day, after returning from the chase, he went up to his wife s apartment, and curiously ex amined, but without speaking. the wound he had made. One evening, when it whi nearly closed, after carrying the point of his dagger from one part to another of the Countess bv*iy, doubtless t;i increase her agonising suspend, he inflicted a new stab, skilfully directed, at' the same time commanding her. on pa'n of instant death, to utter no cry. The wound made, he appeared for some minutes to revel with delight in the sightof the spouting biod. He then coolly applied the bandage as ! efore This second wound healed, he every succes sive fortnight made a fresh ooe, and alwsys wi.h the same calm and inexpressible cruel ty. No one in the castle suspected the true | cause of the alarming and progressive state of weakness shown by the Countees. who wa* almost always confined te her bed. Meanwhilo. nothing could assuage Rein* bur's sanguinary monomania. The Countess' beautiful body was do longer aught but one horrible ulcer, furrowed as it was by her bus band s dagger. Although the wounds were not deep, (the monster, with a refinement of cruelty, takingespecial care that they should not be mortal.) yet they were to numerous that they threw the poor victim into a violent fever, and her life was in imminent danger. The Count, after much indecision, determined to call in the surgeon, after threatening his wife anew, with the whole weight of hi* vengeance, if -he betrayed bis infernal secr-t, and strictly enjoining the surgeon n-?t to en deavor to find out the cause of his patient's illne-s.
