THE OLD LOVE AND THE NEW. A Paris correspondent writes :-There was a lively and exciting scene in the Bois de Boulogne on Tuesday evening, what time the moon was shining among the lesser stars, and nature generally was in complete harmony with sentiments of romance and repose. Among the couples sauntering amid leafy avenues, whis- pering soft nothings to each other, was a good- looking and well-dressed gentleman with a pretty and fascinating young woman on his arm. They were walking along, enjoying the balmy atmosphere and their own society, when suddenly a figure loomed before them, bran- dishing a revolver. The sentimental journey was at once brought to a prompt and tragic termination. They had not re- covered from their surprise at the apparition, when the cry Ah' there you are" resounded in their ears, followed a moment later by the report of fire- arms. The gentleman fell the ground with a shattered shoulder, while the girl I I 1 I -1 witn wnom ne naa Deen snunwnug iicu iu terror from the spot. Good Samaritans, in the shape of sundry passers-by, raised him from the earth, and presently he was being conveyed to his abode in Paris. As for the woman who had so unkindly disturbed bis romantic tHe-à-tête, she was no more to be seen, for she had betaken herself, with the utmost despatch, to the office of the nearest commisary of police. While shedding copious tears, she related that she had done the deed in obedience to an irresistible impulse, prompted by the green-eyed monster. She was the real and original friend of the gentleman whom she had wounded, and she had been unable to endure the spectacle of his romantic walk with a bewitching rival. She has been detained in custody, while the hero of this unpleasant adventure is recovering as best he can from a wound which will long impress on him the truth of the saying that it is better to be off with the old love before one is on with the new.
