PRICE OF AN OPINION.
In a cool right in November, in the year 1825, a
man enveloped in a cloak, rapped at the door of one
of the most distinguished advocates in Pans. He
was quickly shown into the chamber of the learned
,aSir?' said he, placing npon the table a large par
cel of papers, I am rich, but the suit that has been
instituted against me to-day will entirely ruin me.
At my ae, a fortune is not to be rebuilt ; so that the
lo9S of nTy suit will condemn me fore ever to the most
frightful misery. 1 come to ask the aid of your tal
ents. Here are my papers ; as to the facts, I will, if
you please expose them to you.
The advocate listened attentively to me svanger ,
then opened the parcel, examined all the papers it
contained, ana saia - oir, me u.uu ,a.u
u fmnHpd in instice and morality. Unfortunately,
in spite of the admirable perfection of our codes, law
does not always accord with justice, and here the law
is for you. If, therefore, you rest strictly npon the
law, and avail yourself without exception of all the
means in your favor : if, above all, these means are
exposed with clearness and force, yoa will infallibly
crain thisfiut, and nobody can afterwards dispute
the fortune which you fear to lose.
Nobody in the world, replied the client, is so
omnetant to do this business as yourself. An opin
ion drawn hd in this sense and signed by yoa, will
render me invulnerable. I am bold enough to hope
that you will not refuse it to roe.
The skilful advocate reflected for some moments,
and taking up again the papers which he had pushed
awav with an abruptness peculiar to him, said that
he would draw up the opinion, and that it should be
finished the following day at the same nour.
The client was punctual to his appointment. The
advocate presented him with the opinion, and with
out taking the trouble to reply to the thanks with
which the other overwhelmed, said to him rudely
Here is the opinion ; there is no judge, who, af
ter having seen that, will condemn you ! Give me
3,000 frances !'
The client was struck dumb and motionless with
You are free to keep your money,' said the advo
cate, as I am to throw ray opinion in the fire.'
So 6ppakinor, he advanced towards the chimney;
but the other 6topped him, and declared that he wonld
pay the sum demanded, but that he had only the half
He drew, in fact, from bis pocket-book, 1500 francs
in bank notes. The advocate with one hand took the
notes, and with the other threw the opioion into the
'But,' said the client, ' I am going, if you please,
to give you my note for the remainder.'
4 1 want money. Bring me 1500 more francs, or
you shall not have one line. .
There was no remedy, and the 1500 francs were
paid ; but the client to revenge himself for being; no
pillaged, hastened to circulate this anecdote. It got
into the papers, and for a fortnight there was a del uge
of witticisms of all kinds upon the disinterestedness
of the great advocate. Those who did not laugh at
it, said it was deplorable that a man of such merit
should be tainted with a vice so degrading as ava
rice. Even his friends were moved by it, and some
of his friends went so far as to remonstrate with him
publicly; but the only reply he gave was by shrug
ging his shoulders, and then, as every thing is quick
ly forgot at Paris, people soon ceased to talk'of this.
Ten years passed. One day the court of Cessation
in its red robes, was descending the place of justice,
to be present at a public ceremony. All at once a
female darts from the crowd, throws herself at the
feet of the procureur general, seizes the end of his
robe, and pressed it to her lips. The woman was
looked upon as deranged, and they tried to drag her
. Oh leave me alone, leave me alone,' she cried.
I recognise him it is my preserver ! Thanks to
hina, I have been able to bring up my. large family.
Thanks to him my old age is happy. Oh, you don't
'One day I was unhappy then I was advised to
bring an action against a distant relation of my late
husband, who had possessed himself of a rich heritage
that ouuht to have come to ray children. Already I
had sold half my goods to begin the action, when
one evening I saw a gentleman enter my house, who
said to me:
Do not go to law ; reason and morality are for
you, but the law is against you. Keep the little you
have, and add to it these 3,000 francs, which are truly
yours.' I remained speechless with surprise. VI hen
I would have spoken and thanked him he had disap
peared ; and the bag of money was there, upon the
table, and the countenance of that generous man was
engraved upon my heart, never to be erased. Well,
this man this preserver of my family is here !
Let me thank him before God and before men !"
The Court had stopped. The procureur general
appeared moved, bat conquering his emotion, he
Take away this good woman, and take care that
no harm comes to her. I don't think she is quite
right in her mind.' " "
He was mistaken ; the poor woman was not mad
only she had remembered, and M. Dupin had for
Arrc.t or Fugitives. . Three supposed fugitive
slaves were brought to St. Louis on the steamer New
England, trip or two since. They were arrested in
the country back of Quincy, Illinois, and at the time
of their capture were making tracks fox the Canadas.
. We learn they had been absent from their owners
ome time, and up to the time of , the passage of the
KjsUive slave bill deemed, themselves safe with the
Mississippi alone between themselves and their own
ers. This is the first arrest in this section under the
Provisions of the late fugitive slave law.
