Louisa Matilda Fit z mo u ntcharUngtoii, ayoung lady of good connections, was charged with stealing a diamond brooch from the toilette table of another lady who was staying at the same hotel. A chambermaid deposed to having seen the prisoner enter the room stealthily, secrete the article, and glide out. It was discovered in her trunk, which was carefully locked, and had to be forced open, the prisoner refusing to give up the key. Two eminent physicians attended, and certified that they had talked to her, and had no doubt of her being irresponsible. She had no idea as to the consti- tution of Switzerland, believed that diamonds were discovered in a polished state, had never heard of an Artesian well, or of Savonarola, or of the differential calculus, and thought that it was unlucky to begin things on a Friday, or to see the new moon, for the first time, through glass. The magistrate said that it was extremely harsh to bring such a person into a police-court, and ordered her to be let out by the pri- vate entrance.
