At length Moscow, with its domes, nnrl tnwurs, mid paluci-s, ajipn.iri-tl in sitit ; and Xupoluun, who liutl j lined tho advanced guard, gazed long mid thoughtfully on Unit gnul of bis wishes. Murnt wunt for ward uuil entered tlio gatas with his splen did cuvulry, but us ho passed through tho atrcola lio wus atruck liy tho sulitudo tlm. siirrmiiiiled him. Nothing wua heard hut tho heavy trump of his squadrons oa lie pacsud iiliing, for a deserted und nliundniioil eity was the meager pi no for which such unpuiulleU runrls bad been made. As night drew its curtain over tho splendid capital, Napoleon entered tho gates, und appointed Mortier governor. In his directions liecetn maiidod him to abstain from nil pillage. " For this," said ho, you shall bo answer able with your life. iKtfond Moicow uguinst all, whether friend or loo." Tho bright melon roso over tho mighty city, lipping with silver tho domes of more than two hundred churches, and pouring a Hood ot light over a thousand palaces und tho dwellings of throe hundred thousand inhabitants. Tho weary urm sunk to rest. but tliuro was no sleep tor Mortlor s oyos Not tho gorgeous and variegated paluces and tlieir rich ornumonts, nor tho parks and gardens and Oriexitn! magnificence that urery whoro surrounded linn, kept him wakeful ; but tho ominous forhodings that somo diro calamity was hanging over tho silent cupitut. When lieeuleieil it, scarcely a living soul mot his gzu us ho looked down tho long streets; and when ho brnko open tho buildings ho lound parlors, and bed rooms, and chambers, till furnished nnd lu order, but no occupants. 'I his sudden abandonment of tlieir homes betokened somo secret purpose yet to bo fulfilled. Tho midnight moon was settling over tho city, when tho cry of " i iro 1" leueliod tho oars of Mortier j and the first light over Na poleon's faltering cmpiro was kindled, and ihut most wondrous scuno of modern times commenced Ihr Lui imifr of JHuscotc ! Mortier, as governor of tho city, immedi ately issued Ti is orders, nnd was putting forth cvory noit on, when, at daylight, Napoleon tiusiened to liiui. Affecting to disbuliovo tho reports that tho inhabitants worofirijig tlieir own city, ho put tnoro rigid commands on Mortier to keep tho soldiers trorn tlio work ot destruction, l ho Marshal simplv pointed to somu iron-covered houses (hut iiud not yet been opened, from ovory crovtco of which smoke wus issuing liko steam from tlio sides of a pent-up volcano. Sad and thoughtful, Napoleon turned to wards tho Ki'L-mlid, tlio ancient puhico of the Czars, whoso hugo structure roso high abnvu the surrounding odifiocs. In the morning, Mortier, by great exer tions, was enabled to subduo tho flro. liul tho next night, September 10, h, nt midnight tho soutinels oil watch upon tho lofty Krem lin saw below them tho Humes bursting thrtiiigh tho houses and paluces, and tho cry of " 1'no ! flro I" passed through tho city. Tho dread rceno was now fairly opened. Firry balloons wcra seen dropping from tho air and lighting on tho houses; dull explo sions were heard on every side from the shut-up dwellings, and tho next moment light burst forth, and tho flames were rag ing through tho apurtmonts. All was up roar and confusion. Tho sorono air nnd moonlight of the night beforo had given way to driving clouds and a wild tempest thut swept liko the roar of the sea over tho city. Flames arnso on ovory side, blazing und crackling in tho storm; whim clouds ol smoko and sparks in an Incessunt shower went driving towards tho Kremlin. Tho clouds themselves seemed turned into fire, rolling wrath over devoted Moscow. Mor tier, crushed with tho responsibility thrown upon his shoulders, moved with his Young Guard umid this desolation, blowing up tho houses and facing tbo tempest and tht-n.iinos struggling nobly to arrobt the conflagra tion. Ho hastened from place lo place nmld the twins, his faco blackened with smoko. and his hair and eyobrows singed with tho fierce boat. At longth tho day dawned a day of tompost and of flumo and Mortlor, who had stralnod ovory nerve for thirty six hours, entered a palace and dropped down from fatigue. The manly form and stalwart arm thut bad so often carried death into tho ranks of the enemy, at length gavo way, and the gloomy Marshal lay and panted in uttor exhaustion. But the iiiglit of tempest had been succooded by day of tempest, and when night again onvolopod tha city, it was ooo broad flume waving to and fro io tbe blast. Tho wind had Increased to a perfect liur rlcano, and shifted from quartorto quarter, as if oo purpose to swell tho oa of Ore and extinguish the last liopo. Tho flro was ap proaching tho Kremlin. and already tho roar of tho flames and crash of fulling houses, mil tho crackling of. burning limbers, woro hnrno to tho cars of tho startled Emperor. Ho aroso nnd walked to and fro, stopping convulsively and gazing on tho turnfio scene. Murat, Eugeno and Dorthior rushed Into his presence, and on their knees besought him to lleo; but ho still clung to thut haughty paluco as if it woro his empire. Hut at longth tho shout " Tho Kremlin Is on flro I" was heard uhovo tho toar of tho uonlhigration.and Napoleon reluctantly con sented to leave. Ho descended into tho streets with his staff, and looked about for a way of egress, hut tho flames blocked every passago. At length they discovered a pos tern gnto, loading to tlio Moskwr.and enter ed it but they had (tutored still further in to tho danger. As Napoleon cast his eye round tho open spaco, girdled and arched with flro, smoko and cinders, ho saw one single street vet open, hut all on flro. Into this ho rushud.und umid the crash of fulling houses nnd raging of tho fl imos. nvor burn ing ruin, through clmids of roiling smoke. and between walls of fire, ho pressed on; ami at length, hull' suffocated, emerged in safety from tho blazing city, and took up his quarters in tho imperial paluco ol l'et towsky, nearly tlneo miles distant. Mortier, relieved from his unxiuty for tho Emperor, ,'edouhled his efforts to arrest the conflagration. ILs men cheerfully rushed into ovory danger, l!n utliing nothing but smoko and ashes canopied by lianio and smoke and cinders surrounded by walls of fire thut rocked to and fro, and loll with a crash amid tho blazing ruins, carrying down with them red-hot roofs of iron ho t nig gled against an enemy that no boldness could uwo or courago ovurenmo. Those brave troops had board tho trump of thou sands of cavalry sweeping to battle without fear; but now they stood in still terror be fore tho march of tho conflagration, under whoso burning footsteps was heart tho in cessant crtibli of falling houses and palaces and churches. The continuous roar of lie raging hurricane, mingled with thut of the flames, was more terrible than tho thunder of artillery ; nnd beforo this now loo, in the midst of this battle of tho elements, tho auo struck army stood powerless and affrighted. When night again descended on tho city. it presented u Spectacle, tho liko of which wus novor scpn before, and which huflb'S ull description. Tho streets woro streets of fire tho heavens a canopy of fire, and tho en tire body of tha city a mass ot fire, fed by a hurricuno thut sped tho blazing fragments in a constant stream through tho air. In cessant explosions, from tho blowing up of atores of nil und tur und spirits, aliook the very foundations of tho city, nnd sunt vast volumes of smoko rolling furiously toward tho sky. Hugo sheets of canvas on flro cumo flouting liko messengers ot death through tho names the towers churches and palaces glowing with a red hot heut over tho wild sea below, then tottering a moment on their basis, were burled by the tempest into tho common ruin. Thousands of wretches, beforo unsoon, woro driven by tho heut from the culiurs and hovels, and stieumed in an incessant throng through tho streets. Children were. seen currying their parents tho strong the weak while thousands oru woro stagger ing under tho loads of plunder they had snutcliod from the II unes. This, too, would Ireqiiontly take firo in tho fulling shower, und tho misoruhlo creatures would bo com pelled to drop it and tleo for their lives. O, it was a scene of woo and four inconceivable nnd indescribable I A mighty and closely packed city of houses and churches and pal aces, wrupped from limit to limit in flames, which were fed by a whirling hurricane, is a sight this world will seldom soo. Hut this wus within tho city. To Napolo on, without, tho spectaclo was still more sublime und terrific. When tho flames had overcome al! obstacles, nnd had wrapped everything in their red man lie, that great city looked like a city of tolling firo, swept by a tempest that diovo it into tho billows Hugo domos and towers, throwing oil' sparks like blazing firebrands, now disappeared in their maddening flow, ts they rushed and broko high over their tops, scattering their spray of firo against tho clouds. Tho heav ens themselves seemed to havo caught tho conllagrution, and tho angry masses thut swept it rolled over a bosom of lire. Columns ol lluino would risa and sink along the surfucu of this sea, and hugo vol umes ot black smoko suddenly shoot Into tho air, as if volcanoes woro working bolow. Tho black forrqsof tho Kremlin aloiio tow ered above tho chaos now wrupped in flumo and smoko, ngaiu emerging into view standing, amid this sceno of desolation and terror, liko Virtue in tho midst of a burning world, enveloped but unscathed by tho devouring elements. Napoleon stood und gazed on tho sceno in silent awe. Though nearly thrco miles distant, tho win dows und walls cf his apartment wore so hot that be could scarcely bear his hand against them. Said he, yours afterward : "It was the spectaclo of a sou and billows of flro, a sky and clouds of flumo,motintains of red rolling flames, liko Immense wuvos ot tho sea, alternately bursting Inrth and ele vating themselves to ikies of flume below.

Sowing Wild Oats. Many a young m m has been lured from the path of virtue, and enticed into the road that leads by an easy descent, into tho accursed valley of destruction, through ! Hie thoughtless speech of some thought less persons, talking flippantly about sowing wild oals, as a thing lo be ex pected in youth. 'I had a lesson on this subject from the lips of nn aged counselor said a valued friend to me, not long since, "which has never been forgotien. The timely warn ing saved me. I was nineteen years of age, nnd had just entered College. Young men were there from nearly every State in the Union, and some of them al ready sadly corrupted. I was social, in high health and spirits, and an imagina tion was forever carrying me beyond the actual and the present. Before 1 had time for reflection, nnd before even a conscious- of wrong had reached me, I was afloat on a dangerous sea, my boat gliding swiftly forward, and the Syren's songs al ready in my ears. 'Oue night we had a wfne parly in the town, which ended in excesses, ih thought of which lias called a burning blush to my cheeks a hundred limes siuce. I had not been very well for s me days pre viously, sulfeiing from constant heudache and low febrile s,y mptoius. 'The dissipation of a night turned the scale upon the wrong side, nnd I was so ill on the next day, that it was thought best to cull in a phtsieinn. He was an old man, of the olj school gentlemen, nnd wise, thoughtful nnd kind. lie com menced, at once, the business of finding out everything in regard lo my habits, principles and modes of thought, and there was something in him that so in spired me Willi confidence, that I con cealed nothing, lie looked grave, nnd offered a remonstrance. 'Oh,' said I, almost lightly, 'young men must row their wild outs. The ground will be so much better prepared lor seeding wheat, after the crop is taken.' An error of the gravest character,' he replied, seriously, 'and one that has ruined its thousands and its tens of thous ands of young men. Is a garden belter prepared for the reception of the good seed, for having first been permitted lo grow weeds? 1 put the question to your common sense. Are there not some soils so filled with nil manner ol evil seeds, that the gardener, with his utmost toil und care, can scarcely remove the vigorous plants that spring to life in the warm sun' shine and rain? It is no mere compari son, that of thu human soul to a garden It is, in reality, a spiritual garden. Truth is the good seed Which is sown in this garden, false principles the evil seed, or 'wild oats,' which the enemy's hand scatters, if permuted, upon the virgin soil. Now, is it not an insult lo reason lo say that a man will be wiser, truer and a better man, foi having false principles, leading at once to an evil life, sown upon the ground of his mind in youth, as it would he to cay that a garden would be mote thrifty in after years, for being first permitted to grow weeds? My stranger friend! I have lived nlmost the completion of life's earthly cycle, and have known a sad number of young men lost to the world, lost to themselves, and lost, I fear, to the company of God's blessed angels, in consequence of that single idea sown into the earth of their minds. Oh, cast it out at once! Keep yourself pure. Lei right principles, chaste thoughts, noble purposes, manly aims, grow in your garden not the ac cursed wild oats! Be prudent, temperate, virtuous, obedient to superiors, honorable and kind. Aim to be n man not a sen sualist. Govern yourself as a man, in stead of letting passion, appetite, or any sensual desire rule you as a tyrant. Sow no more wild oats. You will find trouble enough in your after life, with the seed already scattered in your fields.' 'The scales,' said my friend, "dropped at once from my eyes. I saw that the good old physician was right, and that that this cant about sowing wild oats in volved one of tho most dangerous falla cies into which the mind of a young man could tail. It wus my lust folly of this kind.' T. S. ArtKur. Washino shirts, says an exchange paper, weara them out. When tbey get dirty, rub them with chalk. Economy is wealtb, The Wealth of our Statesmen.

The ancient Romans were accustomed to place the busts of their distinguished ancestors in the vestibules of their houses, that they might be continually reminded of tlieir noble deeds. They supposed that a recollection of their illustrious vir tues would lead lo an imitation of the same by all the living members of their house hold. There is no doubt that the influ ence of this practice was most happy upon tlm living, iiwakening in ninny breasts high and noble nsntrations. At any rate history records the names of many re- J. . . . J nowned K invins who descended from the families where litis custom was observed. The young grew up lo reverence the wor thies wiiose statues they daily saw, and lo emulate the virtues which rrave their nncestois such lasting fame. We can ea sily conceive how the sight of these ima ges as the young men went out and come in, day after day, week lifter week, would impress ineir Hearts tor gooa. ine un-! pression of a single day therefrom, though j very small in itself, yet oil-repeated, could nolfai! lo keep. In these days we have no busts of hon ored ancestors in thu porches of our dwel lings, but we have something more im pressive. The characters of living parents are constantly presented for the imitation of children. Their example is continually sending forth a silent power to mould young hearts for good or ill, not for a sin gle month or year, but through the whole impressible peViod of childhood and youth, the influence of parental example is thus felt. If it be constituted of the highest and purest elements, the result will be un speakably precious. Sons and daughters will become patterns of propriety nnd goodness, because their parents are such. The former will be as "plants grown up in their youth," and the latter as "corner stones polished after tho similitude of a palace." i ' The Sea.

Montgomery, trom that day, would not rccngnizo his old friend by salutation or bow. This winter tho two men sit near cueh othor in the House, but never sword has passed between them, and, on Saturday, Mr. Huglisb meant to avenge him self. Tho quarrel is an indication of'tlio statd of feeling between tho Ami Leconipton and Uuchatiiin wings of tho Democracy. How-' ever Mr. Doogiaj may conduct himself, ma ny gentlemen set down us his followers will utterly reluso to niuko peuco with the Ad ministration.

Tiie Leavenworth 7wesays: In the L'mporia .etc3 of the till) inst., we find a satisfactory account of the re cent troubles in Linn, Lykins and Bourbon counties, it seems that after the penco agreed upon between Governor Denver and Capt. Montgomery, tbe latter turned his nttetiliou to his business and family. For n few weeks peace prevailed. A Pro. Slavery Grand Jury, however, soou found "bills of indictment against Mont gomery, in direct violation of the treaty, and a murderous night assault was made upon his home. His life was also threat ened. Tlio Xtics says: "This led to retaliatory acts from Mont gomery and his friends. A warrant ha been issued for the arrest of Montgomery, but he has not been taken, aud will not be, alive. Warrants for tbe arrest of most of Lis company have also been issu ed. "In Bourbon county, (oo there seems to have been a breaking out. It is, doubtless the nursed nnd smothered bate which has been gendered during the for mer difficulties, which has blazed out anew the remembrance cf wrongs for which vengeance is demanded. If the pasi is lo be revived, and tbe law put iuto operation against Free State men who participated in the difficulties which gtew out of the Missouri invasion, there will be no end to these things. It was bad enough lo be obliged, from thu prostitution of the law by a set fiend to take up aims in one's defence, without being visited with legal prosecution for it, when the law has regained its suprem acy." It is this attempt on the part of the Border Ruffians to pursue and punish Montgomery and his men for alleged off-. ences, after a general nmnesty bad been agreed upon through Gov. Denver, be tween the balligerents, that Las caused this outbreak. -Nothing will quiet Kansas but its admission ns a Free State. Clevc. IJa uld mu. How to Prosper in Business.
