MARGUERITTES, Julie de, author, born in London, England, in 1814; died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 21 June, 1866. She was the daughter of an eminent English physician, and married the Count de Marguerittes, who was expelled from France on the establishment of the second republic, and came to New York, where she supported him by her pen. When he was recalled by Louis Napoleon he abandoned his wife, who obtained a divorce, and afterward married George G. Foster, an author and publisher of New York city, who died in 1850. The widow gave concerts and readings, and on 9 March, 1852, made her appearance on the operatic stage at the Broadway theatre, New York, in the opera of " La Gazza Ladra." She performed in the same piece at the Chestnut theatre, Philadelphia, made that city her home, and, retiring from the stage, became the dramatic critic of the "Sunday Transcript." She afterward married Samuel J. Rea, a journalist of Philadelphia. She was a copious writer for the press, and published in book-form "The Ins and Outs of Paris" (Philadelphia, 1855); "Italy and the War of 1859" (1859); and "Parisian Pickings, or Paris in all States and Stations" (18(;0).--Her daughter, Noemie, made her debut at the Halliday street theatre, Baltimore, in the "Ambassador's Wife," but afterward withdrew from the stage, and succeeded her mother as dramatic critic of the Boston "Sunday Transcript."
