THE LATE ARCHDUCHESS MATHILDE. The grievous death of the Archduchess Mathilde has pro- duced a profound impression in Vienna, and of which medical journals give the following details :— The great ravages caused by the burns, and the con- sequent destruction of large surfaces of the body, produced mental exhaustion. In her last days the patient was constantly in a bath, which contributed greatly to lessen her sufferings. At five o'clock on the morning of her death, the Archduke Albert ap- proached the patient, who addressed her father in these words in a voice hardly intelligible:—"How are you ? Have you slept well?" The father, bowed y down with grief, replied only by .addressing the same question to his daughter. She said, "I have been very quiet all night, and feel myself very weak." A moment after she gave a deep sigh and breathed her last. Dr. Schmerling was the only witness of this moving scene. The countenance of the princess was in no way changed by death, and bore no marks of the agony of the struggle it retained its loveliness; no burn had disfigured it. In the morning Dr. Rokitansky performed the autopsy, and embalmed the body. The two arms presented extensive burns from the shoulder to the elbow; the left arm was almost completeiy burnt the back of the neck was only slightly burnt, but from the back to the hip was one extensive wound. The ankles were also burnt. The Archduchess Mathilde, a beautiful blonde, was born on January 29, 184G.
