KARLY DAYS OF NAl'OLKON
Thiers, in his History of the Consulate
relates some very strange and previously
unknown particulars respecting the early
life and penury of Napoleon ltonapnrte.
It appears that after he had obtained a,
subnltciu' commission in the French ser-!
i vice, ami after he had done the state good '
service by his Fkill and daring at Toulon
he lived some time in l'aris in obicuic '
, lodgings, and in such extreme poverty
that he wis often without the means of
paying ten sous .Id for hi dinner, and
frequently went without any meal at nil.
He was tinder the necessity of borrow
ing small sums, nnd even worn-out clothes
from his acquaintances! lie mid his
brother Louis, afterwards King of Hol
land, had at one time only one coat be
tween them, so the brothers coild oIy
go out alternately turn ami turn about.
At this crisis the benefnclorof the futuro
I'mptior and conqueror "at wlioe name
the world grew pule," was the aeior Tal
ma, who cl'tcn gave him food and money.
Napoleon's face, afterwards to famed for
its classic mould, was, tlurin;: ihis. period
of starvation, harsh aud angular in its
( lineaments, with projecting cheek bones.
Ilia meagre fare brought on uu unpleas
ant aud unsightly cutaneous di-i a-e, of ft
type so virulint ami malignant, that it
took all the skill and assiduity of his ac
compli.hed physician, Corvisart, to expel

It is a delicate secret, that of being at

Some people think it reipiires beaiilv or
knowledge, or eloquence in tho speaker ;
it icqiiircA no such thing. It is true that
j beauty brings the hearers near, but it
I does not keep them. Some people think
j that it requires the speaker to be clever

I instead of which il only requires that she
' should, with nice nnd delicate tart, so ad
dress herself to other, as to make them

SOMETHING OF A ROMANCK
An incident occurred on board tliu
sknmhont Mayflower, last Saturday
night, which il strikes us, is worth tellinz.
Among the passengers down was Mr
Ilenjatnin Glaier, a man between CO
and 70 years of age, who reside, at
Whitehead, Nauta?ket, It was lute when
thu boat reached the wharf, and the storm
being very severe, Mr. Glazier thought
it would hardlv be safe to attempt to gi
home, and so he concluded to pass the
night on lmaid the boat. Among the
per.-oiis employed on board, is one whom
most of our readers know as the cook or
stewardess of the boat, but whose name,
until the occurrence we are about to re
late, has never been known lo any on
board, none having thu curiosity to in
quire, and all hands agreeing in calling
her invariably by the familiar appelatiou
I of ' Mother.' While at the supper table.
( some one having accosted Mr. Glazier
by name, ' .Mother ' began lo gaze at him
verv eiirne-llv. and then nroeceded lo
question him as to hi origin, his family

TIIK MAUltlACK HKLATION.
The ereut secret is, lo learn to bvir
w ith each other's feelings ; not to be blind
to them that is either an impossibility
or 11 folly j wo must see nnd feel thtin ; 1 varum, mlrer.se rircnmstuuccj it
if we do neither, they are not e.ils lo us, ronsimmtimi ha been left to the patriot
and there is obviously no need of for-. ,,,(! I"""1' "' 'i Uia comer
boiirancti but to throw the manllo f 1 Moue was hud on tbe 4th of duly lul,
infection round them, cotirenlinc llitnt 1
fiom each other's eyes' j lo determine not
to let them chill the affections ; lo resolve
cultivate good-tempered forhenrnnce, !
cause it is tho only way of mitigating '
3 present evil, always with n view to I
ultimate, amendment. Surely it is not
the perfection, but the imperfection of
human character that makes the strong
est claim in love. All thu world must
approve, even enemies must admirr the
good mid the estimablu in human nature.
If husband and wife estimate only that
in each which all must bo constrained In
value, what do they more llian others?
It is infirmities of character, imperfec
tions of nature, that call for the pitying
sympathy, ihu tender compassions that
makes each the comforter, (he monitor
of the other. Forbearance helps each to
attain command ovi r thcmelves. Few
are the creatures so utleilyevil as to
abu-e a generous confilencc, a calm for
bearance. Married persons should bu
pre-eminently friends, aud fidelity is the
greut privilege of friendship. Tho for
bearance heiu contended fur is not a
week and wicked indulgence of each
other's faults, but such n calm, lender ob
servance of thcrn us excludes all harsh-
i. ess and anger, and takes thu best mid i
gentlest methods of pointing them out in
the full confidence of affection.
