A Russian Sensation.

The fashionable world of South Russia is looking forward to a pretty piece of gossip this month. Prince Nickoshadze, one of the gayest young officers Of the Czarowitz’s entourage , has charged Mademoiselle Proskovaya, a colonel’s daughter, with stealing 6,000,000 francs in French securities. Mademoiselle has retorted that the money was given to her by the prince. The Criminal Court at Yalta will decide the question. The lady is a goldenhaired beauty of 20, with such a beautiful face and figure that every courtier at Livadia is madly in love with her. If the prince persists in the action he will have to fight a score of duels, and will certainly lose the friendship ot the Czarowitz, who has already shown his disgust at the conduct of the Lothario, and ordered him “to let the poor girl alone.”
