NAPOLEON BoNAIARTE's PROPHECY
Russia Ast TURiKEY.-This extract
froim the life of the great Napoleon
will be read with particular interest
at this time. How near the tr.th was
he:
On anrothrr occasion he said to
O'Mleara, inl the course of a few years
Musia will have Constantinople, the
greatest pa. t of'Turkey, and all Ureece.
This I huld to be as certain as if it had
already taken place. Alhost all the
cajoling aimd ilattcrirnr which Alexan

my assent to cfhi'et this olect. I would
hit, consent, foiresecing that, the eqruili
brium ot Europe would be destroved.
la the natural course of things, in a
few years Turkey must fall to Russia.
The greateet part of her population are
Greeks, who, you may say, are Rus
sians. The powers it would injure,
and who could oppose it, are England,
irance, Prussia and Austria. Now, as
to Austria, it will be very easy for l'us
sia to engage her assistance by giving
her .'ervia and other provinces border.
iug on the Austrian dominions, reach
in near to Constantinople. The only
hyputhesis that Englaind and Erance
with ever be allied with a neerity, will
be it, orx to prevent this. But, even
this alliance Would not avail. France,
England and Prussia united cannot
prevent it. Itxisia and Austria can
at any tie ell'eet it.

Bassia is mkiost to be feared, especially

land neit her river, nour rivulet, nor well,

lie at such at distance from the city that
the inhabitaints can make no use there
