had lived wiih hera brief pcriod, not two yearsif
we rccollect ariglit, Napo!con ordcrcd him to re

obtaincd from Honie, and the lovcs of Jerome
and Misx Pattcrson wcre scvcred. ImmeJiatrly
aftert-ards, iu tht year 1S07, Jerome marHcd a

up his rcsidence in that territory, whcre hc now

sums of money civen her by Napoleon, is im

At the time of the Trois Jours, or the revolu
tion of 1830, s,be wis in Paris, and momentarily
expected that the scenes ol 1793 would be re
peated. Bhe snw, and beard, and knew that
" The rude rabble's watchword was destroy,
For blazing Paris seemed a second Troy,"
and feaied, not witbout teason. that her depos
iies and stock in ihe hands of the bankers, ratght
become the prejr of thieves ; but in this she was
happily disappointed. As soon as the turmoil
ofttie Uevolution had subsided she transferred a
verry large portion of her wealth io this couitrv,
and mvesied it in the stock of the Bank of tlie
Uniied Statcs. Tl ere she had hoped it would
be secure. In the month of May, 1837. after
she had got her funds thu invcsted the gencral
suspension ofthe banks took place, and we well
recollect the imprcssion it made on her. Sir siid
she to us, on that eveiitful day, I do not believe
there is any safety tn the world ; invest money
as I will, something takes place to dcprive me
of a part of it. I brought tt lo this country to
keepitsacred from the remorscless hands ofthe
revolutionarv baudits of Europe, and 1 scarcelv
put ii in bank here, before the faithless insti'U
tion fails, and I am swindled. She had pie
vionsly, we believe, losi some large sums by the
failure ofthe Union Bank of Maryland.
As it was not al that time supposed that thc
Bank ef ihe United Statcs was bankrupt, or
wnulJ brcotne so, Madam B'lnapatte was con
soled by theaiirumjnts of hcrfricnds, and forccd
ratlier against her own cpinion, into the
belicf, lhat Mi. Biddle'd Bank was safe and
At this very pcriod, shs was e.igagcd, for thc
so'e purposeofgetting her funds safely invested,
in the ercctinn ofa large block ofhuildings, in
Baltimore Strcei, near what is callcd Jone's Full
Bridgc. Thay wcre naarly complcted, when
one night in June, the river known by the name
of Jone's Falls, suddenly swelled to an imineii'c
height, and came likc a deluge down upon the
dsvoted city: numreeus houses, ware-house, and
storesof allkinds were desiroyed by the impetu
ous rujhings of the to renl, and some fifiy or a
bundred persons ivere drnwncd.
Madame Bonanarte's buildin!:; were unforlun-
atelv erected in the very 'f"ocus-pol' of thefliod.
Thoiigh not destroyed, ihey suiiained injuries to
the amouut ol many tiinusanu uauars. i ne lauy
iiow became perfectly incorrigible: shedcclared
theie was neilher safety, stahili'y, or guaranly
for any ihing in tbe United State?, and declared
that she would lake every thinir she iiossesscd
back to Europe, and invest it in the funds of
Ho'land theo' ly Stale in which shc coulJ dis
covcr Ihe least remnant ol stabi'ity. We believe,
however. that shc was dissuatfed lrom the pro-
iect : and nre very sirry to add, thnl we have
"ood reaion foi fearing that bhe had large sums
of money in the Bank of the United Slates, at
the time ofits infamous failure.
Madame Bonaparlc is by no mcans popular,
anu, lcr the rcason, inat shc speaks with great
I'recdom, and often with the most sovereigii con-
tempt for all things American. She di.-iguises no

becomc hereditary in thc family ofthe cclobra-
tcd Chief Uncas. During thc timo of my fa
ther's morcantile nrosueritv he had cmnlovcd
several Indians of this tribe in hunting animnls, i
whoseskins were valuableror thcir Tur. Among i

I had heard this story nnd did not entirely
believe it ; for younir as I was, I had alrcady
partook in the prevailing contcmpt for Indians.
In the beginning of May tho nnnual election of
thc principal officers of tho (then) colony was
hcld at Hartford, the capital.
My father attended ofncially. and it was cus
tomarv for tho chief ofthe Mohegans also to
attend". Zachery had succaeded to thc ru!e of
his tribe. My father's house was situatcd
about midivay on thc road between Mohegan
and Hartford, and tho old chief was in the habit
of coming a few days before the election, and
dining with his oromcr guui.iur. um; uay
thc mlschievous thought struck rr.e, to try thc
sincerity of the old man's tempcrancc. The
family wero seated at dinncr and there was
excellent home-brewed beer on the table. I
addressed thc old chief 'Zachary, this beer
is excellent ; will you taste it !'
Tho old man droppcd his knife and fork
Ieaned forward with a stern intcnsity of cr
pression; his black cyo sparkling with in-iigtia-tion
was fixed on me. John,' said he, ' you
do not know what you are doing. You aro
serving tho devil, boy ? I tcll you that I am

I should but taste your bccr, I could not stop

to break a good resol'ition.' Socratcs nevcr
uttcred a more valuablc orccept. Domosthcncs
could not have givcn it in more solcmn loncs of

weru deply affected ; they looked at each other
at mc and at thc venerable old Indinn, with
deop feelings of a'0 and respcct. They after
wards frcqucntly remindcd mc of thc sccno and
chargcd me nevcr to forget it. Zachery lived
to pass the ngc ofeighty, and sacredly kept his
resolulion. He lies buricd in tho rnynl burial
