SUN Alx-olute acquiescence In the decerns of the fly Manser & Elsely. Frvin the Correspondent of the Button Daily, Paris, Oct 1, 1840. M. THIERS, M. Thiers is a small mm, wi'h rather an iffomi nate voice and look, but n.itwilht-tand ng he is a man of great rapacity. He is whM we cM a self m ide man. He ha written the best work on the French revolution, be baa been tho most powerful writer for the press in France, he hi made capital and effective speeches in the chamber of Deputies, he is now prime minister ; and lore than 20 years ago he waa poor and unknown, inheriting nothing but po verty and disgrace, living in otxure lodging", and not knowing from day to day when or how he was to gi t a dinner. In April next M. Thiers will be forty four years of age, and in lees than h df that number of year he has built himself a naie, and developed a character that may be envied by many an older and bolter man. His father woe lock smith, and at eighteen (he son wa entered as a law student, and applied himself with alacii'y and perseverance to the study of literatute, philosophy and history, identifying himself with the party of the peiple, and enlisting himself on the a'de of the revolutionists His talents were great, his writing forcible. He wtole a theme for the prizi of the Academy of Air, which, al hough acknowledged the bent, was in consequence of coming frm him rejected, and the decision of the prize was postpo ned to another year. In the meantime a new com petitor for the prize appeared, who sent his manu script from Paris. The production ecl'psrd all o thera, and was pronounced successful, when lo I on opening the sealed a.ket containi-g the author's name, who should it be but tho lit1 Ic jacobin Thiers. He had written an entire new treat so, and having got a friend to copy it nd put it into the post ollice at Paris it had unexpected by the learned members of the Aeadamy, gained lor him the prize. Having been admitted to the bar of Alt he did n t succeed, because he was known as the po r son of a oor man, and he concluded to come to Paris to seek his fortune. He was tich in hope, in am bition and in talents, but even here he was for some t:me in obscurity and poverty. But he knew that fortune waa a fickle goddess, and be wa'ched her with a keen rye to tike advantage of the R a chance abe ahould give him, to ii- to the station he cove ted. In 1820 he made the acquaintance of Manuel the great orutor, and Lafitte, and became one of the writera fur the Constitu'ionnel, one of the best pa p r in Pari. Hera he shone pre-eminent for the nerve, the richness and the beauty of hia contribu tions, and soon he became person .liy acquainted with great men of the day. He wa a frequent u sitor at Talleyrand's, and he is frequently called in deriion by the opposition, tho "would lie Talley rand" of the day. He i a man of great judgment and of much olwervalion, and rarely allowa any thing to escape hia memory. From a mere writer in the Consiilutior nel, he a -on became a proprietor, and, foitune hivinj gone will with him, he awu med the dsn.ly, and was to 1 e found every d ey at Tort mi', and kept hi horse to ride in the Doi de Cologne. The Conmitutionnel did not suit his purpose afier a while. It via too old fashioned, uud he wanted something frerhir. Accordingly in 1828 he founded a new paper called the Nati mat. which took a stand more Jem cratie, and was the, mouth piece of the revolutionary parly. In the Nationut M. Thiera showed his ii.uuslry and hi v gor. He attacked the gov,.rnment of Charles X, and goaded on Polinac lo the utmost. He kept his pvt when o'her j lurn d sl were afraid to speak, and va only d ien from it at last by force. M. Thiers took an act'.ve part in the rcv.du'ion of July, 1830, and it was he with Lafirte thai induced the Uuke or Orleans to accept tho crown. He ma le part of the Knit cabinet of Ivi PfAillipj, a under secretary to the minister of finance. He was soon after ilected deputy for Aix, and made his fir ft ap pearance in the Chambers; Tho Lafitte ministry having been obliged to resign, Casaitnir I'errior be came prime minister, and the opposition counted upon M. Thiers as their loader, but he disappointed them, and came out with an eloquent and able speech againut all their proposition On the sub ject of the Hereditary p er ige, democrat and j ico- bin as he always had txten, he proved himself even more minintrtial than tho mtnistiy themselves. His speech on the occasion is said lo have been moi-t masterly. The hereditary plan fell to the ground, but from this moment M. Thiers was atamped a one of tlte first orators of the Chaml-er, and he le- taiu his rank to thia day. It la useless to fo'l iw him through all the politic of France to th a lime. He has, I btlieve, either diieetly or indirectly been a put of every cabinet since l30 until 1838, when he wa found on the opposition benches. In March, 1840, M. 'i hieis became Prime nvn- is er, and whatever may be said of his acts, he has khown bimaelf so far an able one. There are many who doubt whether be will be able to sunUiu him self through the coming session of the Chamber, and ihe opposition are making vigorou elf iris to oust bim if possible, 80 much for M. Thiers a a publie man. In priva'e be i alfibU to thote he meets, and a companion whose society is to be co veted, but beyond this we are permitted to know nothing.
