After a while it leaked out that he had been to the West Indies, look ing up Leidesdorff's heirs, and finding, as was said, a female that he believed was the real Simon Pure heir of the vast estate, he without ceremony popped tiie question, was accepted, and married forthwith, congratulating himself that Captain Folsom and all other claimants would have to statu! aside, while he, the great nabob of California, would be without a rival in the Golden State. After the marriage, in preparing the neccessary documents and get ting testimony to substantiate the claims of his lady fair, he found to his astonishment that he had made a small miskake, anil that in fact he "married the wrong nigger."

Raleigh, January 21, 1850. S3-0m " The Fren& Imperial .uarcl. The following in relation to the reconstruction and probable early destination of the Imperial Guard of the French army, is from the London Times. If it be correct, there will be hot work iti the Baltic by the first of next May. The body which in France bears the name of Imperial Guard was called into existence more than fifty years ago. It first surrounded a Republican Consul, lint it was not until the founder called himself Emperor, and meditated the conquest of Europe," that it assumed its great proportions, and the matchless discipline which has given it an enduring fame. In the great battles of the later Empire the Guard was always conspicuous; as the enemies of France learnt skill and stubbornness from defeat and re every day twre a mah&c.ibeeo:HirorI tiie services of the Guard were more and more a sad necessity. Both Sovereign and people looked upon them with boundless favor and admiration. It was the Guard to which Na poleon bade farewell at Fontainebleau, and the feeling was requited by the iiuuinehiiig demo tion of Waterloo. With this last catastrophe its days of glory closed, ami during a genera tion it was unknown to France. The present Emperor had not long been in power before he carried out a design probably long before formed. An Imperial Guard was a natural project to a Bonaparte restored to the throne. The inemorj" of such a force was deeply seated in the hearts of the people. If reconstituted it would equally invite the fidelity of the army. The revived organization was even more. cfVicient than forty years back. The force was never a mere body guard, but now it is a complete army of tried soldiers, light infantry, and field train. To judge of the Guard by the regiments which bear a corresponding name in Eug'a id, would give a most incorrect notion. The olli-1 cers have almost always served with distinction in the Line, while the privates are similarly draughted from other regiments, so as to avoid the intermixture of young and untried soldiers. The Guard, as reconstituted, is fitted to be the great nucleus of French armies, the reserve for the day of danger, the chief defence in any long and hardly-contested conflict. But the French Emperor had no wish that his newly formed force should rest at home while loss favored troops were incurring dangers and earning fame injthe Est. It was necessary to the honor of the new empire that the new Guard should in scribe on its flags names worthy to be remem bered. Accordingly, in the spring of the present year nearly 7,000 landed in the Bos phorus. Under a commander who had shared in the wars of the first Napoleon they encamped with the reserve of the French army. A few weeks after they were ordered to the Crimea, and at the capture of the Mamclon they proved tmit the old spirit was alive whtcn had led to 15 years of glory. On the 18th of June and 8th of September the same valor was shown in defeat and victory. These brave men now re turn to their own country after an absence short, if mere time be taken into account, but of long duration if measured by the crowd of brilliant actions which have marked the year that has closed. It would be unfair, however, to attribute the unwonted enthusiasm which the Parisans have shown merely to the fact that it was the Guard who entered the city. Several toihvoru and shattered regiments of the Line were there men who had bivouacked at Old Fort amid rain anil tempest, who had fought at the Alma, and for eleven mouths had been decimated in the trenches before Sebastopol. The respect and welcome of the people were equally given to these, but the presence of the Imperial Guard gave a higher tone to the solemnity, inasmuch as it called upon the chief of the State to address in pesrou the troops which are especially his own. We are not among those who endeavor to extract a meaning from every word that talis other regiments ui av have their turn of service and its rewards. tlic country," no savs, "which maintains 000,000 soldiers has an inter est in maintaining in France a numerous and experienced army, ready to march wherever occasion may require." lie tells them to j re serve carefully the habits of war, and, while resting for a time from hardships, to be yet in readiness to respond to his appeal. This is certainly not the tone of a man who contem plates tiie ending of an incomplete war by an ineffective peace. It rather shows a conviction that the contest is more arduous than was at first believed ; .that, though success is sure, it is still far off, and must be sought by new exer tions ever a wider field. No nation of Central Europe need fear the announcement that the French Guard are to hold themselves 'ready to march.' Although the Allied Powers would gladly see the co operation of Prussia and Austria is so great a cause, yet their neutrality is not likely to be interrupted so long as it is a reality. It is against the common foe of Europe that the newly raised levies of the French empire will be directed, it is on the frontier of the Czar that the storm will break which is presaged by the short address of the French Sovereign. The plan of the next campaign is not decid ed, nor can in its extent be yet foreseen.

It is probable that the struggle in the Baltic will not fall short of that in the South either in regard to the magnitude or the results. The land forces may not reach the numbers which are now congregated in the East, but the fleet which the two nations will shortly dispatch to the northern water will ex ceed anything that has hitherto been known in naval warfare.

There is good reason for such precautions. It is more than probable that a portion of that Guard whose return lo Paris just celebra ted, will be sent within n few months to earn now titles to applause on the shores of tho BalUo. At last the war in this part of the wu id must lose the reproach of incurring great expense to effect little, and even the two former fruitless campaigns will not lie wholly lost if the experience gained, is useful for eventual success. The Crimea and the Transcimcassiau provinces may each of (hem be the scene of important events. It is the peculiar advantage of the Allies that they can in a few days change the seat of war, and land a powerful force on any point of the Blaek Sea coast, from the H'.iiih(rimui:t'"to T5iilnrm; Their armv is available for any enterprise? they can attack where they please, certain that the enemy can not retaliate. On the other hand, Russia is compelled to 'maintain a different army at every point of her territory. Odessa can ill support Simpheropol Tiflis can hope for no assistance from either. In these circumstances there is indeed encourage ment for the French Sovereign to persevere, and to promise the noble force which he has created that it shall render new services to France and civilization. He has in his Guard a body of troops well affected to his family and throne, but they will best support his claims by completing his triumph over tho adversary against whom he and his allies are banded. A "Hict!iiiM to Tyranka! Laws. Mr Robert Russell, who formerly lived in Schoharie county, New York, now resides in the city of Albany. Russell appears to be the victim of unpropilions circumstances. Russell has an'unhappy faculty of doing business con trary to law. On Thursday last Mr Russell was arrested for the eleventh time since autumn set in. We give his examination: "Well, Russell," said the magistrate, "you are here again, I perceive." "Yes, sir. The fact is Squire, I'm a wictim. Blow me if I care what Bobby Russell does, he is sure to violate some law or other. AVhen I comes to Albany, I says to myself, Russell, my boy, we'll take a hunt to-morrow and try them fox hounds. Well, sir, out I goes, and what do you think? Before I got to the next corner, 'Barney Whaleu tapped me on the shoulder, and says, 'that's agin the law." 'AN hat s agin the law?' I replies; and he says, 'having dogs in the streets without muzzles' lie accordingly arrested me, and brought me to the police court. The result of that piece of fun was a tine of live dollars.' Well, what did 1 do then?" "Can't suv." "Well, listen and I'll tell you. I sold the fox-hounds to one of Aunt Hunt's friends for t wenty dollars. With the proceeds I bought a sow and five pigs. I took them home, built a pen in the back yard, and thought all my troubles at an end, but I was mistaken. t ni cer Bradwell called on me the very next morn ing, and says: "Russell, keeping hogs in Ihe yard is against the law.' I doubted it. This riled officer Bradwell, who had me arrested agin. This time I was fined five dollars." "Well, what did you do then?" "I sold my sow and pigs, and bought a horse and cart, and undertook to draw wood. The very first load I put on drew the attention of policeman Sickles, who said, that driving a cart without a license was 'agin the law.' He ar rested me for that offence, which caused mo another fine of five dollars." "Well, what did you do next?" "I sold the horse and cart, and bought the half of a charcoal wa-'on " "Well, what success did you meet with after that?" "The same old luck, sir. The first day I commenced peddling, policeman Snooks took me by the collar, and says: 'Russell, that's agin the law, old fellow." 'What's agin the law." I said. He retilied 'sell in ir charcoal in .a wooden measure.' That cost me a fine of three dollars." "Did this drive you out of the charcoal busi ness?" "Yes, sir. I sold out, and thought I would try my fortune in carrying baggage between the steamboats and railroads? What's the use? I only commenced work to-day, and yet here I am again." "What for, now?" "For soliciting baggage without a permit from the Mayor. As I said before, I'm a wic tim. If I should save a man from drowning by jumping into a whirlpool, dash my vig if I don't believe the first policeman I met in coming ashore would come and say: 'it's agin the law, Russell, to go overboard without a license from the Coroner.' " The Justice having heard Mr Russell to tho end. admitted that he was a "wictim," and let him oil' without a fine. Russell left the office, saying that he would go and kill himself, "if it were not for one thing." On being asked what that was, he replied that some policeman would ui.si.utei- it was "agin tlic law to commit sui cide," and undertake to collect the fine from his "misfortinit children." Russell's case calls for sympathy. Poktky Sobkuko Dowx. -I'm thinking on the time, Kate, when sitting by thy side, and shelling beans I 'gazed on thee, and felt a wo man's pride. In silence leaned we o'er the pan, anil neither spoke a word, but the rattling of the beans, Kate, was all the sound we heard. Thy auburn curls hung down, Kate, and kissed thy lily check; thy azure eyes, half filled with tears, bespoke a spirit meek. To be so charmed as I was then had re'er before occurred, when the rattling of the beans, Kate, was all the sound I heard. I thought it was not wrong, Kate, so leaning o'er the dish, you snatched up a lot of beans, I snatched a nectar kiss. And a sudden shower made me blind, I neither saw nor stirred, but the rattling of the beans, Kate, was all the sound I heard.
