CAPTURE OF A BRIGAND QUEEN.. The Pontificial government is excessively proud of an achievement of its troops, who have recently sue* ceeded in securing a valuable prize—no less a person- age than a brigand qneen styled "Loisella," the partner of the redoubtable Andreozzi, who reigns supreme among the Volscian hills. This "Loisella" before she took to the hills was serving maid to the wife of that Panicci, governor of a paese called San Lorenzo, who was carried off in March last by the brigands, and, being found unable to walk, was for three weeks borne about the mountains in a chaise-b, porteurs. During his period of detention, at the. instigation of Loisella, who dictated to him the items, Pauicci was required to send to his wife a list of her, jewellery, with a letter begging her to hand to the bearer the precious articles named as a portion of his ransom, and an indispensable oondit on of his being set free. With the exception of a pearl necklace, which had been presented by the Signora Panicci to her daughter on her marriage, and winch was instantly. missed by the observant Loisella, the whole of the required jewels were promptly forwarded. Seizing the glittering and precious things, Loisella proceeded to adorn herself with them, and, thus arrayed, pre- sented herself before her late master, demanding of him derisively for whom he took her. You are Loisella," replied Pauicci, my w fe's maid." "No," answered Loisella, pointing to the jewellery, "lam your wife." Having been captured with a double-barrelled gun m her hands, Loisella will probably ha ve sentence of death passed on her, but will certainly not be execu- ted, even though she should he unsuccessful in decoying Andreozzi or others of her lovers into the hands of the authorities.
