The Remains or JoIiir Paul
Wo lately announced that the U. S.
frigate St. Lawrence, which convey-1
ed to London the articles of Ameri-!
can industry, destined for the univer- I
sal Exhibition, had also a commission
to take back to the United States the
remains of Commodore Paul Jones,;
now buried in Paris.
On that occasion, is reported an (
anecdote about this celebrated man, ,
who was the Duguay Trouin of war j
It was in 1779, during the war of '

of BreSt. lie nad escaped the Lng- J
lish cruisers who surveyed Tlroise. (
and desired to be revenged on an intrepid
sailor for the immense losses
that he had inflicted upon their navy
and their commcrc.
Paul Jones was received in our i
first military port, with the divine '
tion du'q tonis rank, and above all, to 1
his high reputation, justified by cele- i
bratcd actions. When his mission, i
which was 10 agree Willi J lie lVrencli

The night before, lie went to the J
coffee-house of La Droniedie, where '
all the marine officers used to reunite. 1
All admired the brave American
captain*, some of t'.em were jealous !
A general conversation followed, j
they spoke ol the dangers that Paul
Jones was to meet in trying to es-!

first veiled ; but which, encouraged
by the cold dignity with which Paul
Jones .received them degenerated ;
soon into positive provocations.
The American hero lost nothing of I
his solf-nossession, which was one of
the principal traits of his character.
'Lieutenant,' said he to his aggressor,1
calmly but with firmness, 'my country
has not .too many arms with all

for a vain quarrel, that I must be prodigal
of my blood. I cannot have

To this unexpected declaration,
a murmur of disapprobation spread
between (ho officeis present. Paul
Jones spoke again, after having look- j
ed around with a fiery glance which |
lie fixed then on his aggressor:

The lieutenant bowed.
'Well!1 pursued Jones, lI am to
take leave of M. the Intendent.?
