Despite wnrnlinrs and censorship, the poets and
literary men of rninco eanimt complain of want
of social recognition. During the lirstyc.vn.il
the present empire, it Udy, n rrreiit lady, a rent

say, "the Empress," desired Monsieur Merimee,
the senator and academician, to call upon Ihs
ranpi r "de It utile vr le sn part" and to tell him
that she ardently desired to Me him and receive
him. The poet, surprised, tlaticrcd, and embar
rassed, replied with all sorts of uxcuses. He was
unaccustomed to empres s ; he only desired in
his old ape, and nt the end of his careor, to livej
in iUict oliseitrity. He rciifsttd to bo relieved
of an honor which, etc., etc.
Her Imperial Majesty, on receiving this reply,
cut back to him to say that, "As ho would not
call on her, she would visit him."
It would have been a sight worth seeing, that
mectinp between the old poet and the youn l-.in-piess.

Much has recently beeu written of Oriental
subtlety, of the fine observation and pregnant
apprehension of the Eastern races ; but perhaps
the wily Asiatic is sometimes "sold" by the
simple l'.uropean. When Sid l'aeha was la

addressed him :

We know from the authority of Sheridan's
"Mrs. I'iiII," how pos-ible it Is for tivo great
authors to hit upon the same idea, but that two
composers should hit upon the same air ro'piircs
an amount of credulity beyond us. Here is evi
dence conflicting enough to pu..!c the most intel
ligent of special juries.
M. Alexandra Boucher, who wiuj born in tho
year 1770, was a colobrated vloliuist. Ho was also
rcmarkablo for an astonishing resemblance to the
"In 'li2," says M. Boucher, "I spout an evening
in the raiibomg St. Germain at the Hotel da
Montaigne, Hue de In Chaise. During tho mim-,
a colonel w ho was on the point of departure lor
Marseilles to join his regiment, t mk leave of the
mistriss oi the house. Madame do Montaigne
" 'I am charmed to meet you," said tho Colonel,
and I shall prolit by tho introduction hy asliiu,'
you to coniHjse a march tor my regiment a I'tm
prorate, if possible. '
"1 sought to excuse myself. I objected that I
had no music-paper; and a guest ruled a sheet of
ordinary paper with a pencil. Ma .lame de Mon
taigne supplicated, and at last I yielded, wrote
the march, and the colonel departed with it in his
pncki t. I had not oven tune to arrange it. When
the colouel arrived at Marseilles he gavo it to the
bandmaster. It was played on parade, and be
came the favorite marca of the regiment.
"About this time Kouget do I' Isle, tho reputed
author ami composer of the 'Marseillaise,' was
imprisoned forpoliiicul causes in fort St. Jean, in
Marseilles. .His j iiler, seeing that be occupied
himself incessantly in writiugjver.es, one day
said to him :
" 'Mon oill .lcr, why not write a song in honor
of our ami es .- Tlie Marseillais neither like tho
words nor the air of the "Carmagnole," but there
is a march tha bund plays every day a quick,
stirring, inspiring air every one is singing it.
Why uot writo words to it ?'
"The Imprisoned soldier sot himself to work,
and his words were adopted by tho crowd who
had before adopted my air.
"Judge of my astonishment when In tho 'M ir
selllaisc' I recogni.ed the march 1 had written at
the Hotel do Montaigne. It came from Marseilles,
and was naturally called the 'Marseillaise.' If.
as biographers bare stated, Hougut do I'lsle had
composed it at Strasbourg for the dep irturo of
the volunteers of the Army of the Rhino, it would
have beeu called the 'Strash uirpooiso.'
"Years alter I was dining in l'aris, and Uougct
de l isle sat beside mo. Haviug so long heard his
name coupled with my compositions, I looked at
him with considerable curiosity, and compli
mented him with marked significance upon his
"'Hut you don't speak of the music,' sail ho.
'Your opinion as a gn at musician is of value.
Dors it not please you !'
" 'You must know, then, that the air is not
mine. It Is a march of 1 don't know whom, that
whs played at Maiseiiles wheu I was prisoner
th( ro during the Terror.'
"I soon convinced him that I was tho composer,
and utter congratulating me, ho said :
" -Y'ou are forever robbed of tho fame of your
own work, for though I proclaim you tho com
poser, the words und air are so insjpaiaolo tint
no one will believe me !'
" 'Keep all tho fame yourself,' I answered. 'But
for your genius my little march would be forgot
ten, or played sometimes in a garrison town.
You have ennoble d, sublimed it, and it has be
come yours hy the power of poetic absorption !' "
Thus for M. Alexandre Iloiieher. On the other
hand a letter from M. Nortiel, of the Library of
Strasbourg, protests "against the fable, prompted
by nmour-proprr, told by M. Boucher. It w is in
'!i:i, says M. Nortiel, and within the walls of
Strasbourg, that the sublime Hymn of Liberty
was composed, and it was Inserted in the
'Afllches do Strasbourg,' on the 7th of July of
Ihe sumo year, and was entitled, 'Chant do
Guerre pour 1'arinee du Hhiu, dedie au Mirechal
I.uckuer.' Copies of this journal still exist
which prove this fact. From Strasbourg the
hymn spread rapidly through tho departments,
and it was hrst sung in I'aris by the volunteers of
Murseillt s as they entered the city gates. It was
christened tho 'Marseillaise' by the Parisians
We have heard, too, that tho Illustrious com-po-trs

"My dear Monsienr Gui.ot, you seem weary

Hydraulic pressure is known to be a great
power, and the Due de Morny, years ago, put it
to a new use, and successfully pierced the thick
skin of a vulgarian. Tho noui eu riche in ques
tion gavo dinners, at.d alwajs reserved for him
self and bis wife a certain exquisite vintage of
l.eoville which tho famous house of Clos small of
Bordeaux sold him for a louis tho bottle. Tho
servant who stood behind his master's chair hud
secret orders to maumuvre with this particular
wine, so that the guests, although served with tho
best, never tasted the heoville.
M. de Morny, Informed of this fact, watched
the servant, and marked his clever manipulation
of tho bottle. The man asked him
' bermiuige :"
The Duke replied, pointing to the place where
the bottle was secreted, loudly ' I prefer Leo
ville." Tho man looked at his master, who, seeing
tL u' he was discovered, uvtdo the best of it.
"Don't you bear f tho Duke prefers l.eoville."
Tho precious bottle waa brought from ita
hiding-place, and the Duke's wineglass slowly
tilled the host, his wife, and all the guests ob
serving tho operation with deep interest.
M. de Morny poured tho couteuts of tho small
glass iuto hiB tumbler, tilled it up leisurely with
water, und drauk it as if it were only onliuary
It must have been a dreadful moment for Mon
slcur and Madame, the host and hostess.
