indeed, ont of the nature of the case,
that his representations of his own
child-character were iu the main correct.
Tho young Buonaparte was from a
babe abrupt and quarrelsome. His will
fulness was extreme, Tho likelihood is
that ho never otico in his life willingly
obeyed anybody) Near his death, at
Loiigwond, hb declared that he was nev
t afraid. His child-passion was fre
quently excited against Joseph, over
whom ho exorcised a censorious sway
from the time when they toddled togeth
er in tho birth-room e.r fought in the
y.;rl. Ho appears to have loved his
mother, and to have obeyed her in a mo
rose and mathematical way; bnt in his
last talk ho indicates that his couduct as
a child toward tire mother was rather
prudential than affectionate. Ho bears
witness that tho Kaniolino lioness was
teuder in tho treatment of him, as well
as fcovero anil just.

Tho feeling eif regret for tho lost cause
began to wane abont tho time that Na
poleon was sent to school; but there was
still in his heart a drop of inherited bit
terness on account of the French con
quest. - Ee looked back angrily at the
terrible conditions surrounding him in
his childhood. As late as his twentieth
year he broko out in passion. "I was
born, ' sajd he, "while my country was
dying. Thirty thousand French, vomited
on cur shores, drowning the throne of
liberty in waves of blood such was the
horrid sight which first met my view.
The cries of theelying, the groans of the
oppressed, tears cf despair, surrounded
my cradle at my birth." Tbo utterance
shows how hardly the future emperor of
the French himself in youth became a
When, from tho sixth to the ninth
year of Lis agf, tho boy Bonaparte at
tended school in his native town, three
lines radiated be-fore his feet One of
these was dim and clouded, but glorified
with patch's cf extreme light. It was
the way into the kingdom of that New
Philosephy which was just then reveal
ing itself with snch brilliancy in France.
A second and well trod way led straight
ly to the Chcrcb. Komo was great and
honorablo. Hlt rewards of diligent am
bition were rich and certain. The young
aspirant who entered the colleges might
well expect emolument and reputation.
Tho third path led dangerously to the
military life. None might at that time
discern the ceding upheaval of society,
withitscoueomitaiitreiga of the sword.
But tho agitations of the epoch were
suOicii nt to enconraga war, and to offer
a mcasuro cf inducement to follow in
tho path of military gleiry.
The taciturn schoolboy of A jaccio bad
these throe oie:u ways beforo him. From
tho first, ho was precluded by the dis
positions of his family, intensified in
himself. Ho never had the scholastic
trait His abilities as a pupil, and after
wards as a military cadet, showed noth
ing of the philosophc Indeed he con
ceived how early in boyhood wo know
not a prijudice against philosophy and
tho philosophers as well. As for the
Church, he had an inbred admiration
for Rome; but the kind cf life offered in
tho priesthood was without attractions
for him personally. Ho was willing that
Joseph and other cf his friends should
become priests and bishops; bnt not him
self. Neither the scholar's gown nor the
priest's surplice offered the slightest at
traction to his imagination.
Tho condition of tho Buonaparte fam
ily about tho years 1776-78 was critical.
Carlo, the father, had given an interest
ed adhesion to tho French. He had his
hopes from tho annexation. Ho would
keep his titles and recover tho proper
ties formerly belonging to tho family.
The Buonaparte estates in Corsica had
been mostly lost Some had been confis
cated by the Genoese party and convert
ed into Jesuit schools. Tho recent revo
lution had reduced Carlo's means almost
to naught He was himself of no repu
tation as an economist. His family had
rapidly multiplied. Two children died
in infancy between the birth of Napo
leon and that of Lucien, in 1775. The
r family was brought almost to penury.
Carlo ue Bnonaparte could not get
back his properties. The privilege of
writing bis name with a do did not com
pensate for his losses. Ho struggled with
adversity, and sought the aid of influen
tial friends. Among these the most
arailablo was General Marlxrnf. The
latttr in 1776 appealed on behalf of his
Corsican friends to tho authorities in
Paris for tho privilege of educating the
Buonaparte boys in Franco at tho ex
pense of the royal treasury. This thing
might be done provided the applicants
should be uuiler ten years of age, and be
ablo to show four strains of noblo blood
iu their veins! In tho case of the boys
Buonaparte, this could not be proved;
and affairs in the homestead went from
bad to worse.
At this juncture history, rather than
man, came to tho rescue. France was on
tbo verge of bankruptcy. One financo
minister after another was appointed,
and one financial schemo after another
exploded in the hands of the inventors.
It became necessary to call together, at
Versailles,a council of the nobles. Carlo
do Buonaparte was chosen a representa
tive from Corsica. In going to perform
his duty at the French capital, be took
with him, to be distributed en route,
his two sons, Joseph and Napoleon; also,
the boys' half uncle, Joseph Fesch; also,
a cousin of Letitia. the mother. As for
Fesch, ho was to be left as a student at
Aix. Tho cousin had been appointed to
an office in tho chert h at Autun; and
at that place the distracted father deter
mined to drop his two sons at school.
This was in the year 177S. The com
pany set out by way of Florence, Genoa,
Marseilles, Lyons. The youngest of the
company was a sad-facsd, big-eyed boy,
in Euch apparel as could be furnished in
the house of an impecunious nobleman.
The boy's head was bent forward as he
walked. His foot now for the first time
touched the continent He was in his.
tenth year. Ho muttered broken ejacu
lations to his companions. It was Na
poleon Bonaparte on his way to Autun
and the world.
