V. Flashes of Obsccrity.
The insurrection in Lyons qnellcd it
elf before the arrival of Lieu tenant
Bonaparte's contingent. The municipal
ity proved itself sufficiently strong ta
put down the insurgents without the as
sistance of tbe military arm. Fighting
there was none. Napoleon's company,
arriving in due time, was stationed in
the city for a month. It was a small be
ginning of war for him yiho was des
tined, with less than a decade, to lead a
victorious army over the Alps into Italy.
Tbe disturbance at Lyons put a date
to Bonaparte's career at Valence. Ho
had remained in that place from tho fall
of 1785 to August of 1767. This period
of twenty-three months, though obscure
in its manifestations, was one of tbe
most important in his life. It was the
transition from youth to early manhood.
At this stage in the lives of men, tbe
tnicd passes rapidly from one condition
to another. Particularly is this true if
study have been the mood and genius
the attribute of the person concerned.
Tha ambition of the young officer now
shot out In several directions. Deeply
Impressed with the fame and power of
the great authors whose writings just
then were setting the world aflame, he,
too, would be an author! Such was the
quality of this singular personage that
be never distrusted himself in anything:
Before the end of his eighteenth year be
conceived himself able and qualified to
write a history! Con-ica should bo his
theme. He would write the annals of
his native laud in so philosophical a
manner as to place him alongside cf the
Abbe Raynal ! He went so far as to ad
dress a It Iter to that august personage,
telling him that ho himself, though a
youth, was already a writer. He begged
the historian to excuse his audacity.
He flattered him by saying that indul
gence, extended to a neophyte, was a
KAPOLEON BY AfDOIN.
cure mark of genius! He enclosed to the
Abbe tho first two chapters of bis al
leged "History of Corsica." the cacog
raphy only being surpassed by the heresy
of tbe rhetoric and the massage of gram
mar! We half suspect that the bottom mo
tive of this business was not the hope
of being a hirtoriai but rather the dis
tinction of having correspondence with
a great man. However this may be, the
Abbe indulged Napoleon, wrote to him,
advised him to 6tndy further, and then
to rewrite his work. Not only did the
historical ambition have the Lieutenant,
but the romantic also. He took some
what to novels, and for the first time
falling in love, dotc-rmined to write a
novel. At the house of Madame da Co
lombicr, be made the acquaintance of
her beautiful daughter, and foil in love
with her after the manner of all young
lieutenants. The flame of this passion
presently went out, but traces of it are
seen in his correspondence until what
time ceasing to love Madamoiselle Co
lombier ho turned pessimist, de
nounced love as a mockery, and in par
ticular as the drawback to human am
bition! In tho midst of the fitful gleams of
this emtio life may be seen burning tbe
coals of that furnace-beat which the
years have not yet extinguished. The
student Bonaparte became a pale, living
reality. He supplied himself with the
works of the leading authors of the age,
and devoured them with the rapacity of
one starving. He made himoelf familiar
with the writings of Voltaire and Keek
er. The one he followed through the
mazes of the new French learning, and
tbe other through the intricacies of prac
tical finance. For months together, ia
his lodgings and about the barracks, ha
might be seen, with book in band, mut
tering as he read, penciling the margins,
approving and condemning tbe doctrine,
according to his judgment or whim.
There never was a time in bis life when
he swept within his grasp a greater
amount of intellectual products than
during the after part of 1786 and tho
first half of tbe following year.
Coincident with the date of the Lyons
episode, came a military order sending
tbe Regiment La Fere from Valence to
Doaai. in French Flanders, three hun
dred and ninety miles distant Here Na
poleon found himself exposed to north
ern blasts and unfamiliar hardships. In
his correspondence he complains bitter
ly of his situation. He got a fever of
both mind and body, and the effects of
it lasted for several years. His enhap
piuess became extreme, and be sought
by every means in bis power to escape
from the situation. He would get away
or kill himself ! Nor were very powerful
reasons wanting why be should go rise
The Bonaparte family in Corsica bad
fallen .by thirtim into desperate straits.
wine-train with Italy, but had failed
as he did with most things else. Lucien,
a student at Brienne, was doing his best
to get a transfer to Aix, where he might
substitute a priestly for a military edu
cation. Madame de Bonaparte, now
thirty-seven years of age. was hoping
against hope that the government would
pay her the petty stipend due for the
care of her mulberry orchards, bat no
payment was made. - - -
There came want Into tho household.
Lieutenant Bonaparte, making tbe con
dition of his family a plausible excuse,
sought, and in February of 1788, ob
tained, leave of absence to visit Corsica
Thither he went, in poor health and
general morbidity of mind. By this time
bis arbitrary character had begun to
how itself in full force. Once at home,
ho played the despot Ho hectored all
his kinsfolk, with tbe exception of the
mother, and she could hardly withstand
his impetuosity, willfulness and gloom.
Home again after an absence of near
ly nine years, the young, officer busied
himself more with things great than
things little. He was more concerned
with tho political condition of the world
than with the daily needs of his moth
er's house. Ho dwelt more on the state
cf Corsica than on the emptiness of Ma
dame Bonaparte's cuisine more on the
woes of Ajaccio than on those of his
brothers' and sisters' stomachs. He con
ceived himself to bo the patriot par ex
cellence of his age, and spent more time
in delivering socialistic monologues
than in contriving the means to rescue
the family from impending ruin.
: It was at this juncture that Napoleon
began to concern himself especially
about the institutions and history of
England. Along with his Keeker he
studied Smith's "Wealth of Nations,"
then only twelve years from tho press.
The Elizabethan age not indeed for
the intellectual glory that was in it, but
for its political intrigues impressed
him greatly; and he undertook to do
into fiction tiio features of that era in a
novel euiitled tbo "Count of Essex."
Thoa ho flow back to his "History of
Corsica, " rovised tho parta which he
bad sent to tbe Abbe Raynal, and
pressed on with the rest Alongside of
Voltaire, he would set up a rival pro
duction of his own, called tho "Masked
Prophet" a marvelous and impossible
invention out of Persia I Literature was
thus mixed with affairs; fiction flourish
ed at the meager meals which Madame
Bonaparte was able to set for her fam
ily; and anatheuias of Joseph's unprofit
able wine-shop were illuminated with
paragraphs about the glories of rebel
lion. Eonaparto's leave of absence so ea
gerly sought soon became oa in tolerable
to him as to the rest His paper gave
him privilege to be away from his com
mand for six months; but before the end
of the fourth month inventing casuis
tical reasons he impatiently left Corsi
ca to rejoin his company. During his
stay in the island, he had accomplished
something something that would have
been much in any other. Ho bad induced
the French intendant to agree to allow
his mother's claim. He had pushed for
ward the inert Joseph to try the law as
a profession, and had eeen him installed
at Bastia. He had urged upon his gouty
nnclo the necessity of patriotism ! He
had drawn up and submitted a system
of coast defenses for tbe principal ports
of the island. He had prepared a scheme
for tho creation of an insular army. He
had studied and written incessantly at
a furious speed, completing his Oriental
novel and his "History of Corsica."
Tbe latter was cast in the epistolary
form, and was dedicated to Monseigneur
Marbceuf, now promoted to the see of
Meanwhile the Regiment La Fere had
been ordered from Dcnai, to Auxonne,
in Cote d'Or, 163 miles from Paris.
Thither Napoleon repaired, to rejoin bis
command, in tbe last week of May, 1788.
He took with him the manuscript of his
"History of Corsica," seeking a pub
lisher, but finding none, either at Va
lence or Lyons or Auxonne or Paris or
anywhere else in this mundane sphere
It would be impossible to define the
mental condition of Napoleon at this
stage of his development Politically
for though a soldier he was always a
politician he went halting between
two forces. The one tendency drew him
powerfully towards the local independ
ence of his native island. This involved
hatred of the conquest and annexation
of Corsica to France. It also involved
hatred of France itself; of the French
race; and of the French monarchy
in particular. But the other tendency
drew Franceward with equal stress. It
was from the powerful fact of France
that all benefits had thus far flowed to
the family of Bonaparte. By France he
had himself been educated. Besides,
Corsica, even aa an independent state,
was a limited field of action. France is
great France offers world-wide distinc
tion. Our commission as Lieutenant of
artillery is a French commission, and
our very sword Is a French blade.
But our "History of Corsica" is a pa
triotic and insurrectionary document
It is inconsistent with our allegiance,
and hurtful to what France may prom
ise hereafter. Therefore we would bet
ter shuffle, and rewrite our book. We
will put it into the month of a Corsican
patriot of tbe old Genoese faction, to
which tbe family of our mother Bamo
lino once belonged. In its present form
we make a oopy of it and send it to tbe
great Paoli in London; but be returns it
to us, putting us off with the counsel
that we are as yet immature, "tooyocng
for writing history," and adding words
to the effect that our book is not suffi
ciently origin aX In truth, our mind is
a vortex, a maelstrom of conflicting
tidea Here at Auxonne, daring oar stay
of eighteen months, we will sit down
again, insatiable, in solitary gloom, and
devour the greatest things thought and
written by men whom we shall one day
surpass and eclipse!
