In a cool right in November, in the year 1825, a man enveloped in a cloak, rapped at the door of one of the most distinguished advocates in Pans. He was quickly shown into the chamber of the learned ,aSir?' said he, placing npon the table a large par cel of papers, I am rich, but the suit that has been instituted against me to-day will entirely ruin me. At my ae, a fortune is not to be rebuilt ; so that the lo9S of nTy suit will condemn me fore ever to the most frightful misery. 1 come to ask the aid of your tal ents. Here are my papers ; as to the facts, I will, if you please expose them to you. The advocate listened attentively to me svanger , then opened the parcel, examined all the papers it contained, ana saia - oir, me u.uu ,a.u u fmnHpd in instice and morality. Unfortunately, in spite of the admirable perfection of our codes, law does not always accord with justice, and here the law is for you. If, therefore, you rest strictly npon the law, and avail yourself without exception of all the means in your favor : if, above all, these means are exposed with clearness and force, yoa will infallibly crain thisfiut, and nobody can afterwards dispute the fortune which you fear to lose. Nobody in the world, replied the client, is so omnetant to do this business as yourself. An opin ion drawn hd in this sense and signed by yoa, will render me invulnerable. I am bold enough to hope that you will not refuse it to roe. The skilful advocate reflected for some moments, and taking up again the papers which he had pushed awav with an abruptness peculiar to him, said that he would draw up the opinion, and that it should be finished the following day at the same nour. The client was punctual to his appointment. The advocate presented him with the opinion, and with out taking the trouble to reply to the thanks with which the other overwhelmed, said to him rudely Here is the opinion ; there is no judge, who, af ter having seen that, will condemn you ! Give me 3,000 frances !' The client was struck dumb and motionless with surprise. You are free to keep your money,' said the advo cate, as I am to throw ray opinion in the fire.' So 6ppakinor, he advanced towards the chimney; but the other 6topped him, and declared that he wonld pay the sum demanded, but that he had only the half with him. He drew, in fact, from bis pocket-book, 1500 francs in bank notes. The advocate with one hand took the notes, and with the other threw the opioion into the drawer. 'But,' said the client, ' I am going, if you please, to give you my note for the remainder.' 4 1 want money. Bring me 1500 more francs, or you shall not have one line. . There was no remedy, and the 1500 francs were paid ; but the client to revenge himself for being; no pillaged, hastened to circulate this anecdote. It got into the papers, and for a fortnight there was a del uge of witticisms of all kinds upon the disinterestedness of the great advocate. Those who did not laugh at it, said it was deplorable that a man of such merit should be tainted with a vice so degrading as ava rice. Even his friends were moved by it, and some of his friends went so far as to remonstrate with him publicly; but the only reply he gave was by shrug ging his shoulders, and then, as every thing is quick ly forgot at Paris, people soon ceased to talk'of this. Ten years passed. One day the court of Cessation in its red robes, was descending the place of justice, to be present at a public ceremony. All at once a female darts from the crowd, throws herself at the feet of the procureur general, seizes the end of his robe, and pressed it to her lips. The woman was looked upon as deranged, and they tried to drag her away. . Oh leave me alone, leave me alone,' she cried. I recognise him it is my preserver ! Thanks to hina, I have been able to bring up my. large family. Thanks to him my old age is happy. Oh, you don't know me.' 'One day I was unhappy then I was advised to bring an action against a distant relation of my late husband, who had possessed himself of a rich heritage that ouuht to have come to ray children. Already I had sold half my goods to begin the action, when one evening I saw a gentleman enter my house, who said to me: Do not go to law ; reason and morality are for you, but the law is against you. Keep the little you have, and add to it these 3,000 francs, which are truly yours.' I remained speechless with surprise. VI hen I would have spoken and thanked him he had disap peared ; and the bag of money was there, upon the table, and the countenance of that generous man was engraved upon my heart, never to be erased. Well, this man this preserver of my family is here ! Let me thank him before God and before men !" The Court had stopped. The procureur general appeared moved, bat conquering his emotion, he said : Take away this good woman, and take care that no harm comes to her. I don't think she is quite right in her mind.' " " He was mistaken ; the poor woman was not mad only she had remembered, and M. Dupin had for gotten. Arrc.t or Fugitives. . Three supposed fugitive slaves were brought to St. Louis on the steamer New England, trip or two since. They were arrested in the country back of Quincy, Illinois, and at the time of their capture were making tracks fox the Canadas. . We learn they had been absent from their owners ome time, and up to the time of , the passage of the KjsUive slave bill deemed, themselves safe with the Mississippi alone between themselves and their own ers. This is the first arrest in this section under the Provisions of the late fugitive slave law. St. Louis Intelligencer Lmto Fact:'.
