VOL. IX. WASHINGTON, D. C., TUESDAY, APRIL 14, 1857. NO. 1,322. A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. An English adventure ha* recently given food for go*sip in Parir, and io "All's well, that reds well.* we are happy to record it. A few ?ears ago, a young English nobleman, just Irreh frmu college. raw and inexperienced, fell iu lovo with the laundry-maid of the castle where his family resided. It appears that the passion first scire 1 upon his sou! while attend ing divine service at a villago church, where Susan by her modest demeanor and bright blue eyes completely overset all the resolutions which the young nobleman'* mother had con ceived npon the subject of hia future alliance with the daughter of the Earl of C?-?, whoso estate joins that of the young nobleman. How the acquaintance first began between a young u >)>lornan, who win reading for his de gree, and a young laundry-maid, who could i?ol read at all, no chronicle will ever tell; but in a short time we find that, by the assistance ?>f an old oollego friend just received Into or ders, at the very village church where the young lord had fi,-gt beheld his Susan, in tho first rosy blush of an April morning, with no other witness bnt the well-fed parish-clerk and pew-opener?with no epithalamium but the joyous ehant of the early birds?no pomp and splendor but those afforded by the great spring festival of nature, which tho young lord, just then deep in Virgil, appreciated more than any other kind, was ho united to Susan; and before the snn was risen to its noonday height the hap py pair were already on their way to France. For #ome months tho young lord lived in the happy delusion which h*d presentod to hi.* youthful imagination the fnir r^usan as the en chanting and moat lovely of her sex. But hon ey-moons are like moons of every other kind? they have their waning hour; and at tho end ? f n certain time tho young lord began to i>cr ecive. to his utter astonishment?for ho had never perceived it before?that the gentlo Su f'nwiw not merely innocent as he had ever thought h?*r, but profoundly ignorant likewise. Everv act and every expression of the poor laun lry-inaid now jarr?d and shocked tie lierve* of the young nobl?man. In short, th% dreadful fact wits soon revealed to him in all i?? ugliness?he was no longer in love! Just about this time the young man's family, to wh^m his flight with Susan wa.- well known, but who still remained in ignorance concerning the mairiage. began to be importunate with re spect to his return, No longer held by tho ti'<?ofthat all-absorbing love which hail cost him so mueh sacrifice, tho young nohleman agreed in spirit with the views of his family But how to break the terriblo fact to Susan* To his astonishment, however, he found her grown as reasonable as himself, cnsonling without a murmur to the proposition that sh? should remain iu France to imbibo some sort of education while he repaired to England to pave the wuy for an avowal of the truth to bis lady mother. Susan, who had learned to believe that every idea emitted by her lord was the right one. consented to everything; and accor dingly, with tears and sorrow at the separation, bur with gratitude for all the goodness and foro-thought displayed by her husband, she took up her residence at a school in tho Fau b >urg St. Ilonore, where as dame en ehamhre (lady-boarder) she was to reccive the benefit of the first instruction which Paris could afford. Time passed on. The young lord was punc tual in his payments, and amid the gaieties of his new life, as master of his own actions, and the flattering* and eajolings of tho fashion able world, no soon begin to look upon him self as bound by no other obligation to the hap 1?*? Susan, IIis letters grew more and more I rare, always telling of the extrcmo restraint in which he wa* held bv hia relations, and the want of means by which he suffered, urging the greater necessity for secrcsy, until at length Susan, wh> believed all, wrote to him a letter f ill of affection, announcing with pride that an I opportunity occurring of relieving him of tho j burthen of her maintenance, she had accepted j a situation as companion to Lady E?, who was going to Montpelser for her health, and had been staying at the same school with her. This took pla*e five years ago. and during all this time it would ap|?ear that the young lord, earing but little for the embarrassment of the introduction or recognition of his wife, content with the assurance given from time to time of her health and welfare, of the entire purity and respectability of the life sho was leading, was maintaining at home the freedom and liberty of an unmarried man. until a short time since, by the death of his mother, being necessitated to m%ke fresh family arrangement*, he was arous ed from his apathy with regard to the patient Susan. Lady E was then residing at Passy, and it was thither that Lord M directed his f.??tsteps on his arrival. What passed at the interview, which had been sought by the hu.r- I band as a mere aejuit de. conscience, and be- f cause he thought it derogatory to the faiuiiy ? pride that his wife should livo longer among strangers, will never be known. To the aston ishment aud delight of Lady E , who had , long been before admitted into the secret. Lord M remained abashed and staggered at the riiffurence which a few years' separation had tovie in his rustic Susan?now grown an ele gant and accomplished wuu.an, listening with ]*rfeel etf?lf-i*M':M**ion u> all his pretensions, and expressing herself with all the reserve and dig nity of a woman of tho world. Needless to say, that his old paa?ion was revived in fall force, and that Susan is again tho queen of his soul, a? in former years, nor will it astonish our read ers to learn that the husband and wife, once more bride and bridegroom, havo returned to England U?gother.

Thf Original Dred Srolt a Rfildmt of St. Lonis?Sketch of HI* History. [From tho St. Louis News, April 8.1 The distinguished colored individual who ha* made such a noiso in the world iu the rase of Scott vs. Sanford. and who has hecome so tangled up with fh?* Missouri Compromise and othergreat sntyects? Dred Scott?in a resident, not a citizen, of >t. Louis. lie ix well known to many of our citizens, and may frequently lx> Keen passing along Third street. He is an old inhabitant, having come to this city thirty years ago. Dred Scott was l*?rn In Virginia. where he be longed to Capt. Peter Blow, the father of Henry C. Blow and Taylor Blow, of this city. He was ; brought by his master to St. Louis about thirty year* ago, and In the coarse of time became the property of Dr. Kinerson, a surgeon in the army, whom he accompanied on that trip to Rock Island and Fort Snelling on the ground of which he based his claim to freedom. The wife of Dr. Emerson was formerly Miss Sanford. and Is now Mrs. Ohaflee, wife of Hon. Mr. Chaffee, of Mas sachnsetts. He has been married twice, his first wife, by whom he had no children, having been sold from him. He has had four children by his firesent wife?two boys, both dead, and two girls, >oth living. Dred was at Corpus Christl at the breaking out of the Mexican war, as the servant of Captain Rainbridge, whom he speaks of as a '? good inan." On his return from Mexico he applied to his mistress. Mrs. Emerson, then living near St. I.ouis, for the purchase of himself and family, offering to pay part of the money down, and give an eminent citizen of St. Louis, an officer in the arntv, as ?e< nritv for the payment of the remain der. His mistress refused his proposition, and Dred, being Informed that he was entitled to his i freedom by the operation of the law regulating | the Northwest Territory, forthwith brought suit i for it. The suit was commenced aliout ten years ? a*o, and has cost Dred ?><)0 in cash, besides labor to a nearly equal amount. It has given him a k- heap n? trouole." he says, and if he had known that *? it was gwlne to last so long," he would not hav? brought It. The suit was defended by Mr John Sanford as executor of Dr. Emerson's will. I>rc?l does not appear at all discou?aged by the l-su?> of the celebrated case, although it dooms him to slavery. He talks about the affair with the ease of a veteran litigant, though not in teeh niral language, and Is hngcly ticklcd at the idea rf finding himself a personage of so much im portance. He does not take on airs, however, but laughs heartily when talking of- de fuss dey made dar in Washington 'bout de ole nlgsrer." He is about fifty-five years old, we should think, though he d'.es not know his own age. He is of tmmixed Af ican blood, and as black as a piece of charcoal. For two or three years past he lias l.cen running at lar^e.no one exercising own ership over him. or putting any restraint upon his movements If he were disposed to make the attempt, he could eainhis freedom at a much less cost tnan evm one-tenth of the expense of the fa mous suit He will not do so. however, insisting 011 abiding by the principles involved in the de cision of that suit. lie declare* that he will sfiek to his mistress as long ashellve^. His daughters, Eliza and Lucy, less conscientious al?out the matter, took .advantage of the absence of restraint on their movements, a year or two since, to disappear, and their whereabouts remain a mystery. Dred. though illiterate, is not ignorant. He has traveled considerably, and has improved his strong stock of common sense by much informa tion picked up in his jouriteyings. He is anxious to know who owns him. being ignorant whether he is the property of Mrs. Chaffee, or Mr. San ford. thouun we presume, there is no doubt that the former Is his legal owner. He seems tired of running about, with no one to look after him, while at the same tini" he is a slave. He say*, giinninglr, that he could make thousands of dol lars, if allowed, by traveling over the country and telling who he is. F.cc.eme a Failcrk ?" Malakoff.-' the gos siping Paris correspondent of the New York Times, writes that it is currently reported in the metropolis of the world's vanities, that the em poror has pronounced his giddy empress a fail ure. He married her !*?? anse he thought she had a brilliant self-sustaining intellect, and would be a great aid and comfort to him. He finds her friv olous and unreliable, and has to lie a tryant in his own house. Being disappointed, he has bccoine unfaithful. Malakoff writes of Eugenie: Her time Is siient in discussing and getting upline robes; she wants to revive the system of court pages and other expurgated fooleries of other centuries; she wants her court to dazzle, but her inventions are those of the milliner. It appears that Eugenie is one of those delicate and prenia ture organizations which rea<h their aciue intoin effective mediocrity. The emperor's bad l>ehavior is tline dished up: For a twelvemonth public rumor hasaccuscd him of all sorts of little sins against his empress, the fair Eugenie. Naturally, the camp of ladles of honor had to suffer in this proximity. Then,cer tain theatrical beauties. After these, a l?elle /l>iiwar?, ud n?w?oh, ungratefulness!?It is a compatriot of Eugenie, a belle Cnstilienee. |]"V" The Associated Prc*s of Western New Yoik Vld a mee'ing at I'ticalast week,at which a restitution was adopted recommending those papers which arc at the expense of taking the re f?orts, to decline exchanging with those that re use to bear a share of the expense. The reports cost the Daily Piess l?etween Albany and Buffalo over i>7.tlfi0a year. II i* said that a young farmer living near the town of Knox, N. Y.t ran away on Sunday with a young lady by the name of Hunt. He left the h??u?e while his wife and two children were ah?ient at church. In his hurry to depart, he left Ids por ket l"?ok in 44 his other pantaloons." On examining the po< kct book, it was found to contain four love letters, and a lock of Miss Hunt s hair, done up in a true-lover's knot.

A negro belonging to Judge Stamps, em ployed on the railroad near Hamp-tcad. Texas, attempted, a few daya since, to kill Mr Dudley, the overseer. While Mr. Dudley was occupiea in correcting another negro for some offence, this I one stepped up behind him stealthily, and struck him on tue head with an axe. Mr. Dudley fell 1 senseless, and was thought to lie dead, but it is iimw thought he will recover. Papkk Tows* ix Nebraska.?We would .ad vise all our friends to beware of paper towns.
