THE TOMB Ol' NAPOLEON.
The Tomb of Napoleon Is one of tho sights of
Paris which a stronger never fails to visit. It
stands immediately under the lofty domoof tho
Church of the Hotel des Iuvalides, and is more
magnificent than tho Tomb of St. Peter in the
Cathedral at Rome, tho cost of it having been
9,000,000 francs, or about $1,000,000. A bronze
door gives access to tho crypt ; over it, on a
black marble slab, is tho request in the Emper-1
or's will, that he be buried on the banks of the
Seine. The following aro tho words . j
"Je desiro quo mcs cendrcs rcposent stir les
bords di la Seine, nn millicu de co pcupel Fran
caisu que fai tant aimo."
Two colossal bronzo caryatides at tho entrance
hold tlii globe, sceptre and imperial crown. A
gloomy gallery running under tho high altar
which forms the tomb leads to the crypt, dimly
lighted by funeral lamps of bronze, and adorned
with bas reliefs representing 1. The termina
tion of civil war; Z The Concordat, 3. The He
form of the Administration ; 1 The Council of
State; 5. The Code; 0. The University; 7. The
Courts of Accounts; 8. Tho Encouragement of j
TradeNind Commerce; 9. Public Works; 10.
The Lrgion of Honor all due to the encrgry of i
the late Emperor. Tho pavement of the crypt
is decorated with a crown of laurels in mosaic.
The balustrade surrounding tho tomb is adorned
with sculptured laurel wreaths, encircling tho
names of tho following victories: Rivoli, Pyra
mids, Marengo, Austerlitz, Jena, Fricdland,
Wagram and Muskowa. Twelvo colossal stat
ues representing as many victories, stand against
the pilasters facing tho tomb, which consists of
immense monolith of porphyry, woighing 135,
000 pounds, and brought from" Lako Onega, in
Finland, at a cast of 140,000 francs, lis ex
quisite polish was cD'ectcd by a steam cugine,
built for tho purpose, and the value of the stone
may bo estimated, wheu it is stated that por
phyry is now considered of tho same value in
weight as pure gold. It covers tho sarcopha
gus, which is also of a single block. 12 feet
lone and 0 in breadth, resting unon two plinths.
which stand on a block of green granite, bro't
irom wo voyages, una total height is 13 j tcct.
In the upper portion of tho crypt U n recess
containing the sword tho.Emperor woro at Aus
terlitz, tho insignia ho used to wear on State
occasions, tho crown of gold voted by tho town
of Cherbourg, and the colors taken in different
battles. At tho farthest end of tho recess is the
statue of tho Emperor in his imperial robes.

Waterloo. The great French writer, Mich
elet, embodied tho universal feeling of France,
in one line, when he wroto the emphatic words,
at onco a history and a prophecy, ' Franco has
no Past, but Waterloo." In 1840, when Louis
Napoleon was brought to trial, beforo the Cham-,
ber of Peers, in Paris,, for. hisjnynsion of Franco

an attempt to move closer to the fire would pro

characteristic as the cat, and would, doubtless,
have sprung upon mo in that case, and have car

animal, most likely from not being able any
longer to feel anything through tho wall of tho
tent, must have turned away, for after what wa

standing perfectly still, with glaring eyes, and
continuing tho same low, deep growling, and

ho occasionally lowered on the ground as with
the intention of taking a firmer hold, but never
entirely letting go of it, I saw by the direction
of his look that he had aught bight of me, and
