A ROMANTIC CAREER.

Few ists have had so ro* mantic a career as Madame Marie. Roze. The following anecdote is only one of a ijfumber of almost equal interest. Dicing the siege of Paris no citizen "worked harder for the defdhce than this intrepid Frenchwoman. She. organised an ambulance, and supported; it by giving concerts and dramatic performances. All the patriotic young men were in love with her, and she received innumerable offers of marriage from admirers in all ranks of society. A young marquis threatened her with a terrible punishment if she did not accept his suit. He invited her to meet him, and swore he would permanently disfigure her if she did not come. She in the Bois de Boulogne, and jas" he spoke four commissaries of police rushed from their yilaces of concealment and secured him. In his pocket was',found a bottle of vitriol. But this failure did not thwart his purpose. He still vowed vengence, and iiaving es-‘ caped from prison when the was declared, might have carried out his intent if he had not been 'shot by a bne ! nigTit near Marie Roze’s "house. ‘.So ended an interesting . drama, which must have been decidedly unpleasant to the heroine.
