The importance of things varies often with the course of time There are events which on the day of their accomplishment wo scarcely think worthy of notice, their I importance depending upon other events, ' which must necessarily succeed them! i This reflection naturally presents itself to my mind at the moment when 1 arn about to turn my attention to the intercourse which Louis 18th sought to establish w ith the B irst Consul. It is certainly not one of the pages the least interesting of the life of Buonaparte. As long as the em pire appeared to stand upon a firm and durable basis, it was nothing hut a curious anecdote , since the happy restoration of the monarchy of the Bourbons, the ques tion of their restoration to the throne by Bonaparte has taken a more exalted char acter. It is a question which belongs to history; it is therefore necessary to state the facts with tlie most scrupulous accu racy. But I must be permitted to make a few ob servations on the manuscript fiocn St. He lena.—The reader will readily conceive that that work was more interesting to me than any body else. It has naturaTly call ed to my mind numerous recollections, but I have not always found that it con tained the truth. The manuscript states what Bonaparte said concerning the negotiations ot Louis 18th with him, and I find myself under the necessity of quoting a few lines rela ting to that circumstance in order the better to be enabled to offer a Jtw remniks on the striking discrepance* which they present, when compared with the auto graphs that 1 have preserved. Napoleon said, at St. Helena, that he never thought of the Princes of the house °f Bourbon : that is true to a certain ex tent; he never thought of the Prince* of the house of Bourbon with a view to re establishing them on the throne; but we have seen, in several parts of my Memoirs, .that he very often thought of them, and’ ahat their very name terrified him more ahan once. The Manuscript adds : "A letter was delivered to the First Consul by the Abbe de Montesquieu, the sectet agent of the -Bourbons at Paris This let ter, of which great care has been taken, he further says, contained: " You are very dilatory in restoring me to my throne. I fear that you are al lowing the most favorable opportunity to escape. You cannot constitute the happi ness of France without me; I can do no thing for Fiance without you. Lo<je no time then ; and do you yourself point out such places as may suit you for vour friends.” To which Napoleon is said to have re turned the following answer: *' I have received the letter of your roval highness. I have always taken a lively interest in your misfortunes, and in those of your family. Your royal highness should abandon the icea of ever present ing yourself in France; your royal high ness could only sneoeeri by marching over a hundred thousand dead bodies. I shall always be happy to do whatever may ^tend to soften your destinies, and banish ^phe recollection efyour misfortunes.” The souse of these two letters is exactly the name; the ideas are nearly similar to those of the original letters; after all then, it is not astonishing that at the cx i pirauon or so many years, Napoleon’s memory should have failed him: but I have thought that in an affair of that na ! lure, between two men of the highest rank, the one by bis birth and talents, the other by his genius, to communicate the text of that correspondence and the curious circumstances thereunto attached, was not an incident destitute of importance. Louis ISth expressed himself thus : t( 20th Fed. 1800. ‘‘Whatever the conduct of men such as you, Sir, may be, they never inspire uneasiness. You have accepted an emi nent post, and I feel obliged to you for it. No person better than yourself is aware ^-miuisites necessary to constitute the happiness ol a great nation. Save i'ranee from her own fury, and you will have fulfilled the first wish Qf my heart icstore her King to his throne, and future generations will bless your memoiy. * our services are but too necessary to the state, or me, by places bow important soever, to cancel the debt which myself and ancestor havo contracted towards von. Louis!” r\.. .1 . . . . .iie receipt oi tins letter the First ^oiis.il became extremely agitated, al though lie daily expressed his determina tion to have nothing to do with Pimees; he took a little time to reflect whether lie should reply to this overture or not The multiplicity of business which then occu pied his attention, was in perfect accord ance with his state ol uncertainty; he therefore seemed in no hurry to return an answer. 1 ought to state that Josephine and Hortenza conjured him to hold out hope to the King, that he would not there by commit himself, and that it would af ford him time to see if he could not act a part, which in the I mg mu would not ap pear much more elevated than that of Monck. So earnest were their entreaties that he said to me, “ Those devilish .wo men aie mad. Tlio faubourg Saint Ger maine has turned their heads.3 They have constituted it the guardian angel of the loyalists; hut no matter : 1 do not feel an gry With them on that account ” Mad ame Bonaparte told me that she urged him to that step, in order that lie might not think of making himself King, a cir cumstance winch con t i nua 11 v awakened in her n.ind, a presentiment of misfortune that she found impossible to banish from her thoughts. During our absence in Egypt, a serious impression had been made upon her. She took delight in relating the prediction of a certain pythoness rather celebrated in her time, a lady of the name of Villeneuvc who resided in Lanery Street. Many of the Parisians were in the hal.it of consul ting her; Josephine went also to see her during our stay in Egypt. Villeneuve said to her “ You are the wife ofa great gener al, who will become still greater. He will traverse the seas which keep him afar ofl—as for you, you are one day destined to fill the most elevated station in France. Bm it will he hut for a short time.1' ^ In th" course of the conversation of the First Consul with me, held at different times, he discussed with admirable saga city the proposition of Louis ISth and its consequences; hut he observed, “The parti/ans of the Bourbons are egregiously dec. ived if they suppose I am the man to play the part of Moi ck.” There the mat ter ended for the present, arid the letter of I he King remained upon the table. Du ring the interval, Louis 18th wrote him a second letter without a date, of which the following is a copy : Ion must have learned,General, long since, that my esteem lor you is very great. If you have any doubt of the sus ceptibility of iny gratitude, signify the place you choose to occupy, decide on the late of your friends. In principle I *,,, a Frenchman. Naturally inclined to cle mency, I would practise it from policy. “ No, the conqueror of Lodi.Castiglione, Areola, the conqueror of Italy and of Lgypt can never prefer vain celebrity to true glory. You are losing a favorable o|> portunity. We have it in our power to se cure the glory of France. I say toe, be cause I stand in need of Bonaparte tor that, and that on the other hand Ik; could do nothing without me. General, fcurope is watching your movements; glory await? you, and I am impatient to restore peace to my people. . “ Signed, LOUIS." I he First Consul allowed a considera ble tune to pass also without replying to this letter, famous alike for its dignity and the elevation of its sentiments. Finally, be wished to dictate one to me ; I took the liberty of observing to him, that the letters of the King were autograph, and that it would appear more consistent’ ilwt he should write it himself. lie therefore wrote with his own hand the following " I have received your letter. I thank you for the politeness of the sentiments it contains. 0 '* You shonld abandon the idea of re turning to France; for you would be ob liged to march over a hundred thousand dead bodies- Sacrifice your own interest to the repose ami happiness of Franco. History will give you credit fur it. “ 1 am not insensible to the misfortunes or your family. I shall learn with plea sure, and will contribute with all my heart to secure the tranquility of your retreat. BONAPAIiTE;” Shewing me the letter he said : “ How do you find it ? Is it not very well ?” He never got angry when 1 made a grammat ical observation : 1 replied, “ Since you have taken your determination, I can have nothing more to say ; but I will make an observation as to the style : l observed to linn “ that people did not learn with pirns are. to secure ^c.” On reading ..no, more, be was of opinion that be had gone too far, and had committed himself by saying that he would contribute with all his heart to-Ha there foie struck bis pen through the latter ph'asc and wrote above ; “ I will contribute with pleasure towards the happiness and tranquility o' your retreat.” A letter thus blotted and corrected was not fit to be despatched ; he left it, never iii' less, .in ihe table with bis signature. Some time after this, he wrote another letter, the three first paragraphs of which vvere exactly the same as those we have just read. He changed the latter and put: “ 1 am not insensible to the mis<or tu.ies of yo„r family, and I shall learn wub pleasure that you are surrounded wn i all that can contribute to the tran qui.ity of your retreat.” By these expres sions lie pledged himself (.♦ nothin" not oven in words. The idea of his contribu ting towards the happiness of the retreat no longer existed. Every day that increas e-1 Ins power and strengthened his position diminished, by bis account the i bailees of t.ie Bourbons. Seven months elapsed be fore the first letter of the king and the de finite answer of the first consul. This let ter is dated 2 vendemaire year It) (24th Sept. 1800) just at the moment when the Congress of Luneville was about to as semble. A few days after the receipt of the leG ter of Louis ISlh, we were taking a walk at .Yalmaison. in his favorite path, which was only sepai;:t<:d from his summer house >v a -small bridge ; he was in an excel ent humor, things were going on admira 1 ) - lias iny wife said any thing more to you on the subject of the Bourbons ?” said lie to me.—No, general. “ But while you were engaged in conversation with her, you gave a little into her way of think '"S’ ^ why you wish to see them here . A ou can have no interest in their return, no expectations from them. You are not of sufficient high birth ever to ob tain a place of any consequence. You will never he any thing to them. You wrre, it is true, through the interest of A1 de Chamhonas, appointed Secretary of Le gation to Stutgard ; and had no change taken place, you must have remained there a I your life, or occupied some inferior place. Have you ever known men to raise themselves to places about a throne through their merit alone ?—In that country every thing is given to birth, great connections, to fortune and intrigue. Ludeavour to view things in their proper light, while you look into futmity ,• exer cise every particle of reflection that you are master of.” “General,” replied I to him, “ my ideas on a certain point are in per feet accordance w ith yours. I have never at any time received from the Bour bons either presents, places, or favors ; 1 am not vain enough to suppose that I m.uuiu nave arrived at a post of distinc tion. But you will not forget that my ap pointment preceded the piosiration of the throne hy a few days ; and I cannot, in irutii, draw any conclusion, on a snhject that has never taken place from causes unhappily but too positive, as to what might, bad the case been otherwise, have happened. As for the rest, f assure you that I am not actuated hy sentiments of a personal nature, when I address you with the frankness which you have required of 'ne. It is not myself that I consider, but f ranee in general. I am peifectly wil ling to believe that you will retain your power as long as you live; but rou have no children ; it is, moreover, morally cer tain that you will never have any by Jo sephine. What shall we do afer you arc gone f What will become of us? You talk to me of the future ! look to thr.t of beau tiful Fra. re, who has solicited h at your hands. You* have often told me that your brothers were not-lie here interrupt ed me with, “ Ah ! as to that, y„u are right ; if 1 should not live thirty years longer to complete what 1 have begun, af ter my death you will have endless civil wars; for my brothers would not suit France ; you know what they are. You will then have dreadful contentions between the most distinguished of my ge nerals, each of whom will conceive him self entitled to fill my place.” Very well general, tlien why would you not rem edy evils which you foresee I Do you suppose that that does not occupy my thoughts ? " But on the other hand weigh well all the difficulties contained in their I proposition; how shall f guarantee so ma ny rights already acquired ; so many im portant results against the efforts of a fam i y on the restoration to power, returning with eighty thousand emigrants and the influence of fanaticism at their heels?— V j Wl llcco|ne of those who voted for the death of the King, men who distin guish themselves m the revolution, the national domains, a multitude of transac tions passed within the last twelve years t Are you the tnan to foresee to « hat extent a reaction would he carried ?” General, it cannot bo necessury lor me to remind you that Louis !Sth guarantees to you by his letter the contrary of everything, a bout which you express any fears; I am aware of the reply that you would make me. But are you not in a situation to im pose such conditions as you shall judge suitable ? Let that he the only condition on which you consent to grant what they ask ; there is no hurry. Take three o’r lour years ; you will he able in the mean •ime, to take such steps as may secure the happiness ol I' ranee, by founding institu tions conformable to her wants and situa tions. I am convinced that custom and haoit would impart to them a degree of strength which it would not be easy to destroy ; and, taking it for granted that such an intention existed, they would not succeed.—\ ou told me one day they wanted you to act such another pait as Monck had done: you know there is no I aiiiiiuriiv m me I wo case?, tor vou know tatter than 1, the difference which exists I between a General who combats the u surper of a crown, and him whom victory and peace combined, have raised upon the ruins of a prostrate throne, and who voluntarily restores it to those who have so long occupied it. Yon are decidedly of opinion that what you call ithuln^y will disappear forever : hut after you ?*'— “ 1 know that better than you do hut all that you can say to me is of no elTect. Be lieve me, my dear friend, the Bourbons would imagine they had reconquered their rights, and they would dispose of them just as they might think proper. Engage ments the most sacred, promises the most positive, would vanish in the presence of an armed force. Yon would he an ass in deed to place confidence in them. My mind is made up ; let us say no more ataut it ; hut 1 know how much those women torment you. Try to bring them to their senses : let them get rid of their ridiculous presentiments Let them mind their kuiting and leave me to manage my own aflairs.” '1 he women have attended to their knitting ; I wrote under his dic tation ; lie made himself an Emperor; the empire has crumbled to dust ; he died at St. Helena, and the Bourbons are res tored. T he Lite of Locke, by Lord King, just published, has excited no smail sen sation in the learned world, particularly at the Universities of Oxford and Cam bridge where the system of this great phi losopher forms so prominent a branch of College education. The present work certainly leads us to a much more intimate acquaintance with the author ofthe“ Es say on the Human Understanding,” than we have yet had an oppoituuity of acquir ing. Locke, when in France, in the year ILL), speaks, in the journal which he then kept, and which has been lately! brought to light, of” parasols, as n pretty sort of cover for women riding in the sun, made of straw, something like the tin co vets for dishes.” Choice nj a tutor .— In advising Lord Peterborough respecting the choice of a tutor for his son, Mr. Locke says finely mid wisely :—“ I must beg leave to owe, • hat I difler a little from your lordship in w hat you propose ; your lordship would have a thorough scholar, and I think it not much matter whether ho he any great scholar or no ; if lie hut understand Latin well, &, have a general scheme of the sciences, I think that enough : hut I would have him well-hrcd, well-tempered ; a rnan that, having been conversant with the world and amongst man, would have great applications in observing the humor and genius of my lord your sun ; and omit no thing that might help to form his mind and dispose hirn to virtue, knowledge, and industry. This I look uj»on as the great business of a tutor ; this putting life into the pupil, which, when lie has got, mas ters of all kinds are easily to be had ; for when a young gentleman has got a relish of knowledge, the love aud credit of doing well spurs him on ; he will, with or with out teachers, make great advances in what ever lie has a mind to.

True politics I look on as a part of moral philosophy, which is nothing but the art of conducting men right in society, and supporting a community amongst itsneigh bourLord King’s Life of John Locke.] | - - . We Insten to correct an ernr into which we have fallen. Wo published last week a letter, which we receivnc from Baltimore, supposing it t lie fnm the venerable Cnarles Carroll. It spoke ol den. Jackson’s late visit to the Mansion— .u have since understood from ,3 corres pondent in Baltimore, that it wda written b> the grandson and heir of thcYcnerable man, who is the sole surviving Signer of the Declaration of Independence. We seize the first opportunity we Ijavu to rectify tire mistake wo h*ve iu«wceutly and uniaumtionalfy comutitied—and which we have propagated through the colurnus of this paper. On Saturday, we requested our friends in Baltimore to apol ogise to Mr. Carroll (or our unintentional mistake, ami to state to him the alacrity with which we shouIJ make the present correction. Such editois as may have copied the article into their papers, will oblige us by copying this correction. [Richmond Enquirer.] The Richmond (compiler contains a notice of an Excavator or Self-Loading Cart, invented hy Mr. W. Beach of Phil adelphia It is described as loading itself in its progress hy means of one of its wheels, which is hollow, taking up 40 square’ feet of earth in one minute. This is car ried to any distance as in a common cart; and the load deposited or unloaded in less than half a minute, without trouble by opening the bottom of the cart. The inventor states that one of his carts is now at work on the Rail-road within a mile and a hall of the Schuylkill river, near Philadelphia; that it is worked by a man and a boy, and three horses, and removes and embanks in a day twice as much eaith as is removed by three com mon carts and twenti/ men who are work ing at the same place. Thus doing (says Mr. II ) the work at about one sixth of the cost it would be done in the ordiua nary mode. The Excavator can be made lor nearly the same price as a common three horse cart, and quite as easily kept in order. It.seems to be entitled to the notice of enterprising contractors. Hints to Parents.—The effect of another ha bit, or, inure property, of a luxury, noticed bv most writers on the subject of early discipline, has been, in some degree, overrated. The ha bitual use of a feather bed, or ofa soil mattress, it is maintained, may materially influence tbo development of the form- Such a couch, bv the uxury and comfort it affords, fosters a disposi tion to indolence ; by the undue warmth it eencr ateB, it enervates the system; and bv the position it impaits to the body, especially if the head be raised, may favor the formation ofdefonni ty of the back in children const itutional predis posed to disease of the bones. The most desir able couch during childhood is a mattrassstuffed with hair, bran, or driod moss. On this the bo dy may enjoy refreshing and invigorating repose, without being exposed to the hazard of any of tl.o evilsjust enumerated. Children, who sleep two in one bed, contract a habit of always lying on the same side of the body, which is calculated o favor the production of crooked spine. Simi lar had effects result from sitting too much in one posture, as persons are apt to do who sit al ways on the same side of the fire, or in the same direction with respect to the light. These ha bits induce their victims to lean to one side, and to retain the body in that position until nature, by moulding the bones into new forms renders Ihein unable to recover their natural condition, from a knowledge of this fact, we are led to de | precato the custom, common in most schools, of assigning to each scholar a particular seat or a scat in a particular spot in the school-room 1 he seats should l»c common to all, and occupied by all in succession. To the practice, also, of compelling the class to stand, while the children are repeating the lesson of the day, mai often he raced pernicious resuits. Hoy's, when ohli ged to stand during a length of time for this purpose,are very apt to relieve the muscles that maintain tho body erect, by balancing themselves on one leg, generally on the left, (Jirls, from the confinement occasioned by their dress, being otten prevented from bending the body, so as tf, balance it on one leg sufficiently to aftord relief , attempt l° maintain their equilibrium by passing heleft.hand round the back, and by drawing the nght elbow Although it is undoubtcdiy°pro per that a child should bo allowed to vary her position at will, when fatigued, vet she should not be permitted to habituate herself to the se lection of an injurious or ungraceful attitude, i o avoid the consequences we have been enu merating, the class maybe allowed to sit whilst repeating the lesson,and each girl to rise in turn when repeating her part. The body, whilst in motion, can be maintained erect for hours at a time, without the person experiencing inconvc nience , to stand upright and motionless, even tor the space of fifteen minutes, is productive of great fatigue.
