'*"‘^»rrs»i>ondence of the Erie Despatch.) ■'<atrs ago a little German Jew, ^wauz 5iftUev‘ng that in the sewers York might beToWg many articles of .hich had seen lost, eiltlf®® them, and ,-ee days wandered through th8-l8byrl“J“' V gras very sucoeasful. picking up some *“')* ofly worth of jewelery, spoons, forks, &c.; having lost his way the first day, he believed" that he might have found much more could he have carried out the original plan, which vraa to have visited Fifth and Madison avenues, Broadway and the wealthy portions of the city. So great, however, were the difficulties and dangers which he encountered, that noth ing could induce him again to visit “New York underground.” His adventure for a time created quite a little sensation, but there were none venturous enough to attempt a sec ond, until Wednesday of last week, when an adventurous party of three entered the sewer of Houston street, at the ferry on East liiver, intending to remain for one week, during which time they proposed visiting every por tion of the city where there seemed to be any chance of finding treasure tvove. The party consisted of Miss Mary Walker, a young lady of eighteen, her brother James, aged sixteen, and Michael Grady, an old man or about fifty. The project originated with Miss Walker, and the '‘how” of it is in this wise: Some two years ago James Walker, Jr., was a merchant, doing a good business at 99 1-2 Bowery. He was getting rich fast, but in an evil hour he was prevailed upon by friends (?) to use some of his money which had been “salted down,” in speculating in gold. The result was easy to be foreseen. He lost. To recover he took money from his business. Again be lost. His business became embarrassed; in despair he committed suicide, and Miss Walker and her brother found themselves six months ago the inhabitants of a room on the npper floor of a double tenement, 209 Sixth street. Miss Walker, some months ago in an old paper, wrapped around a parcel which she was takiug home from a “slop-shop” saw an account of Schwartz's undertaking, and resolved to imi tate it. Maps were obtained and the city stud ied carefully. Each day’s work for herself, her brother and Grady, who was formerly in her lather’s employ, was carefully marked out.— Every preparation which limited knowledge could prepare for was made, and the adventur ers started. I wish that i might have room to tell the story of the week they passed, but my manu script warns me that I must condense. Each day they rendezvoused several times in the chambers at the street corners. On Sunday ihe> had filled all the bags they had taken with them, soma fifteen in number, and Miss Walker returned. James Walker and Grady continued their search, emptying six of their ba(rs at the corner of Twenty-second street and Fifth avenue. On Wednesday morning at a very early hour, and before people were stir ring, Miss Walker was at the place with a wagon. On removing the iron plate, which at each street corner leads into a small chamber connecting with the sewer, she found her brother, but not Grady. He had started off on another trip, although the six bags had been filled in Madison avenue. The loose treasure was placed in extra bags and the whole driven to a Broadway jeweller’s. The rest were taken from the places on Thursday morning. A watch was set for Grady, but up to this time of wriling nothing has been heard from him, and it is feared that he has perished. The result of the week’s search is roughly estimated at one million five hundred thous and dollars. We saw the treasures yesterday, piled in three heaps upon the floor, and the yeweller informed me that it must have coit over $3,000,000, but in consequence of the old tashioued style of setting, its bruised, battered and corroded condition, its value was reduced about one-half. A little over a bushel (how queer it sounds to talk of jewelry by the bush el) lias been Borted, and among it bas been found one diamond ring valued at $16,(100, two more valued at $0,000, and halt a dozen valued at $3,000 and upw ards. The most curious is a plain gold ling, inscribed on the inside in Dutch, ‘'Fetor Stuyvesant to wife." It is an heir-loom ol the Stuyvesants, and was stolen, with other jewelry, last March, by burglars.— How it came in the sewer is a problem tor phi losophers to speculate about. Mias Walker and her brother, who find themselves thus lift ed suddenly from penury to great wealth, in land to proceed to England, where they have relatives. This adventure is talked of every where, and already there are others preparing to follow in their footsteps. The Empress or ah Hour. Marie Carlot ta, daughter oi Leopold I, of Belgium, and Louise, daughter of Louis Phillippe, of France, and first cousin to Victoria, ana wife of Maxi milian, Archduke of Austria, died at Miramar, near Trieste, on the 14th of this month. She was born in June, 1840, and married in 1867.— In June, 1804, she accompanied her husband to Mexico. In July of the current year she re turned to Europe to obtain aid from Napoleon and the Pope for her husband, whose power was growiug less and promising to be lost. She failed in her demand on Napoleon, and showed signs of insanity while visiting the Pope sub sequently. Her brother took ner to Miramar, where, after additional evidences of insanity, sh. died. It is reported that she was occupied to the last with schemes for supporting and sustaining a Power which has lost its chiel prop in her. Curlotta seems to have been the controlling and ordering intellect of the royal family of Mexico. She brought youth, wealth, beauty, influence, and ability to the discharge of the duties ol her position, and as much of Maxim ilian’s small success as is attributable to any cause belongs to her as Napoleon or her father or her husband. She was wise, though impet uous, in counsel and brave of heart. Political ly, her death has significance only in its effects on Mexico, and it is hardly possible that it will not weigh heavily in influencing that abdica tion of the Emperor which has been some time announced, and that return to Europe which appears to have been so imminent.—Philadcl t’hia North American. American Newspapers at the Paris Ex position.—A letter irom Paris concerning the uetails of the coming Industrial Exposition mere, says: It is generally known here ihat America is the country where newspaper literature is more universally brought home to the entire population than any other; but I must doubt whether any just notion cun be formed of what is really done in that way. It seems to me that there can be no better mode of letting the world form a correct judgment on the subject (ban that pioposed by Col. Norton, Bv the way, the English Commission has already re solved upon carrying out the same idea as re gards the English daily press. The system upon which the proposal is to be carried out in the United States is, I understand, as follows: By a pre-arranged Organization, a specimen copy ot the first number of every newspaper, cf every description, published throughout the country in the month of January, 1867,shall be sent to a given place, together with a statement qi the amount of its circulation. The copies -o received shall be bound up in volumes, classed either by States or by large oities, ac cordingly as may be determined, with a view lo portability and convenience of form It is to be hoped that the proprietors of the publi cations in question will, as a body, perceive ihat tho sucees of this important feature of theexibition is a matter which concerns at once their private interests and the credit of tht country.
