But :,; plans wore more skillfully and deeply laui of conducting-a campaign and a battle, he fell back on his own genius, and mado a system of his own, adapted to the circum stance in which he was placed. Instead of opposing wing to wing, center to center, and column to column, he rapidly con centrated his entire strength on separate portions in quick succession. Hurling his combined force now on one wing, and now another, and now throw ing it with the weight and terror of an avalanche on the center, he crushed each in its turn, or cutting the army in two de stroyed its communication and broke it in pieces. And this was the way life mind worked. He concentrated all his, gigantic powers on one project at a time. until it stood complete before him, and then turned them unexhausted on another. He grappled with and mastered each in turn, penetrated and dismissed it with a rapidity that astonished his 'most1 inti mate friends. truth is, with mrro talent than his play mateswith more pride and passion I find nothing in him different from other boys of his age. his tolitary rails, ar.d gorgeous dreams. ;:rd brill 'r n; In j cs rt this early periol belcnc to ' . --.- i-oy of ardent temperament and a l;v- iy imagi nation. In ordinary times throe golden visions would have faded away with years and experience, and Napoleon Bona parte would have figured in the world's history only as a powerful writer or a brilliant orator. The -field which the revolution left open to adventurers en abled him to realize his extravagant jopes. His ambition was a nccessarv re sult of his military education, while the nneans so unexpectedly furnished for grati- NAPOLEON'S BRAVERY.

NAPOLEON AT JENA. This, with his stirring eloquence, early gave him great command over his sol diers. They loved him to the last, and stood by the republican General and the proud Emperor with equal affection. Bonaparte was eloquence itself. His proc lamations to his soldiers evince not only his knowledge of the human heart, but his power to move it at his will. Whether causing one of the articles in Sicyes' con stitution to be rejected by his withering sarcasm, or rousing his soldiers to the loftiest pitch of enthusiasm by his irre sistible appeals, or carrying away those conversing with him by his brilliant thoughts and forcible elocution, he ex hibits the highest capacities of an orator. His appeals to the courage of his sol diers, and ills distributions of honors with so much pomp and display, perfectly be wildered and dazzled them, so that in battle it seemed to be their only thought how they should exhibit the greatest dar ing and perform the most despcrato deeds. Thus, soon after the battlo of Castiglione and just before the battle of Rivoli, he made an example of tho 39th and 85th regiments of Vaubois Division for having given way to a panic, and nearlv lost him the battle. j He si.ddresscd them in the following lan guage: A LESSON BY THE EMPEROR. "Soldiers, I am displeased with you. You have shown neither discipline, nor valor, nor firmness. You have allowed yourselves to be chased from positions where a handful of brave men would have stopped an army. Soldiers of the 39th and 85th, you arc no longer French soldiers. Chief of tho Staff, let it bo written on their standards, 'They are no longer of the army of Italy.''' Nothing could exceed the stunning ef fect with which these words fell on those brave men. They forgot their discipline and the order of their ranks, and bursting into grief, filled the air with their cries, and rushing from their janks, crowded, with .most beseeching looks and voices. The original of this famous painting is in the Hall of Bailies at Versailles, and is by Yernet, who was commissioned by Loi'is Philippe to depict the great battles of . h P.,sia"ns": 'Vvi.huro.holp of Xo.vVn.ci, Lanno3- Tro" woVo blo to'eASio aid ! offromc?"

To hold straining columns of eager soldiers in a leash for two hours was serious. Suddenly a nervous voice was heard from the mnlrs: " F rwanl 1 " " What is that? " Napoleoh queried sharply. "That must be a beardless boy -who wishes to forestall what I am about to do. Let huh wait until he has commanced in 20 battles before he dares to give me advice." Suie enough, it was an eager conscript. agement of the globe, and not so much encireled everything as contained everything . AS. A MILITARY 3EADER. It was hard to tell whether he exhibited more skill in conducting a campaign or in managing a single battle. With a power of generalization seldom equalled his per ceptive faculties that let no detail escape him were equally rare. As a military leader he has no superior in ancient or modern times. He marched his victorious troops. successively into al most, every canita.1 Of Elirone MnnHnn J and overwhelming in turn the armies of Prussia, Austria, Russia, and England, iui u. iuii nine, waged a successful he. fving it fed it with a consuming flame, liis a-brunt, laconic style of speaking cor responded well' with his impetuous tera vcr and evinced at an early age the iron like nature with which he -was endowed. ilis career fairly commenced with his quelling the revolt of the sections. True, Ms conduct at the siege of Toulon had caused him to be spoken of favorably as an under officer, but it was with unfeigned surprise that the Abbe Sieyes, Kewbel, Lctourneur. Roger Hucos. and Gen. Mou lins saw him introduced to them by Bar ras as the commander he had chosen for the troops that were to defend the con vention. Said Gen.

J what was considered the scientific mode lie had seen iouis a.vi. put on the red cap and show himself from the palace of the Tuillcries to the mob, and unable to restrain his indignation at tho sight, ex claimed to his companion, Bourienne: "What madness lie should have blown 400 or 500 of them into the air, and the rest would have taken to their heels." Deprived of his command, he had wandered around Paris during the terri ble scenesof the revolution, learning every day lessons which he would yet have oc casion to improve. He had gone so far as to dictate a long and written proposal to Monsieur for the defense of the tottering throne, offering himself as commander of the troops to be organized for the quelling of the insurgents. To the proposal of this unknown indi vidual no reply was deigned, and tho author of it soon after saw the royal head roll on the scaffold, and retired to his bed sick from the excitement and horror of tho spectacle. But the experience furnished by these scenes rendered him a fit leader to the troops of the Convention, and when on the mighty populace, and the headlong advance of the National Guard, his artil lery, loaded to the muzzle with grape-shot thundered, he announced the manner in which lie would treat with a mob After this Barras became his patron, and in troduced him to Josephine, and persuaded him to marry her by offering as a dowrv the command of the Army of Italv it wa.- noi without misgivings that SUCH gerea """" ", " i. jvws oiu. assume the command ot the army.

From went up by rapid strides to First Con.-nl and finally Emperor of France on&uJ SECUins OF SUCCESS. One great secret of his success is to be found in the union of two strikiri" quali ties of mind which are usually opposed to each other. He possessed an iim.Loi as ardent and a mind as impetuous as the not of the army of Italy." Bonaparte, wishing only to implant feel ings of honor in his troops, appeared to relent, and addressing them some kind words, promised to wait to see how they should behave. In a few days he did sec the brave fellows go into battje, and rush on death as if going to a banquet, ami prove themselves even in his estiniaticm. worthy to he in the army of Italy. Jtuvas by such reproaches for ungallant be7 havior and by rewards for bravery thi? he instilled a love of glory that made them irresistible in combat. Thus we see the Old Guard, dwindled to a mero handful in the fearful retreat from Russia, close round him as they marched past a battery, and .amid the storm of lead that played on their ex hausted ranks sing' the favorite air, "Where can a father be so well as in the bosom of his family."' " ''"''. So. also, lust before the hattln of Anstpr- litz, in his address to the soldiers, he p-omised them he would keep out of danger if they behaved bravely and burst through the enemy's ranks;, but if they did not he should himself rush. in.lo tho thickest of the' fight. 'There could not be a stronger evidence of lo,ve,and, confidence between soldier and General than was evinced by this speech, made .on the commencement of one of the greatest bat tles of his life. UNTIRIXQ ACTIVITY. Another cause of his wonderful suc cess was his untiring activity of both mind and body. No victory lulled him into a moment's repose, no luxuries tempted him to ease, and no successes bounded his impetuous desires. Labor ing wiin an intensity and rapidity that accomplished the work of days in hours ho nevertheless seemed crowded to the very limit of human capacity by the vast : f i plans and endless. .projects that asked and received his attention. In the Cabinet fij astonished ovory on by his striking thoughts and indefatigable industry. The forms and ceremonies of court could keep his mind hardly for an hour from tho labor which he seemed to covet. Ho allowcdT'himself usually but four or five hours' rest, and during his campaigns exhibited; the same almost miraculous activity1 of mind. He would dictate to one set of secretaries all day, and after ho had tired them out call for a second, and keep'tHeto on the stretch all mgiu, snauaiinc wit vuvi icjkw? uuuuv tho whole time. IV. His common practice was to rise at two in the morning arid dictate to his secre taries for two hours, then devote two hours' more to .thought alone, when he would. take a warm bath and dress for the day. But in a pressure of business this division of labor and rest was scattered to tho winds, and he would work all .night. With his .nightgown wrapped around him and a silk handkerchief tied about his head ho would walk backwards and for wards in his apartment from dark till day lightdictating to Caulincourt, or Duroc, or D'Albe, his Chief Secretary, in his im-. petuous manner, which required tho high est exertion to keep pace with, while Rustan, his faithful Mameluke, which ho brought from Egypt, was up also, bringing him. from time to time, a strong cup of coffee to refresh him. Sometimes at midnight, when all was still, this restless spirit would call out, "Call D'Albe; let every one arise;" and then commence working, allowing him self no intermission or repose till sunrise. He has been known to dictate to three secretaries Jit the samo time, so rapid were the movements of his mind, and yet so perfectly under his control. Ho never deferred business for an hour, but did on the spot what then claimed his attention. WILL AND CONSTITUTION. Nothing but tho most iron-like consti tution could have- withstood these tre mendous strains upon it. And, as if Nature had determined that nothing should be wanting to the full development of this wonderful mail as well as no re sources withheld from his gigantic plans, she had endowed him with a power of en durance seldom equalled. It was not till after the most intense and protracted menial and physical effort combined that he gave intimations of being sensible to fatigue. In his first campaign in Italy, though slender and apparently weak, he rode five horses to death in a few days, and for six days and nights never took off his boots, or retired to his couch. He toiled over the burning sands of Egypt and through the snow drifts of Russia with equal im punity, spurring his panting steed through the scorching sunbeams of Africa, and forcing his way on foot, with a birchen stick in his hand, over the icy path, its he fled from Moscow, with tho same firm presence. He would sleep in tho palace of tho TuiUeries or on the shore of the swollen Danube, with nought but his cloak about him, while the groans of the dying loaded the midnight air, with equal soundness. He was often on horseback 18 hours a day, and yet wrought up to the intensesl men tal excitement all the while. Marching till midnight, he would array his troops by moonlight, and fighting all day bo hailed victor at night, and then, without rest, travel all tlo,, following night and day, and tho next nWning fight another uihiiu, aim ut i svwuu uniu vjciuuuut. He is often spokh: or as a mere child of fortune, but whoeVeriin this world will possess such powers' of mind and use them with such skilluand industry, and has a frame that withstand it, will always be a child of fortune., He allowed nothing to escape his ubiquitous spirit, and whether two or fivc'eanipaigns were going on in different kimJois at the samo lime they were equal ly'under his control, and their result calculated with wonderful precision. ?j j (J f To be ') ued.) ,-. it i HEHEWlflG OLD TIES, Reunions of Veterans Who Stood Shoulder to Shoulder in .the Dark Days. .- Illinola. 89th 111., at Aurora, IB., Sept. 14.
