VStounded Vanity at the ffi-ttom of Di
astrous Russian Campaign.
Hy the peace of Tilsit, that r©h ark*
Able compact made between Napoleon
and the czar in a tent on a raft moored
in midstream of the River Momel. Bo
naparte became master of Europe
Prussia, the Rhine province®. Italy,
Brain, were all his, and it ha i\\. v*
been a historic puzzle why he should
have gene out of his way to break an
agreement which must hare satisfied
even his ambitions. The authori
ties agree that it was wounded vanity.
No sooner bad he compelled the
czar to hand him over Europe than hf
conceived the idea of mai%*ing Alex*
aattier's sister. Trusty am stolon
we e sent to St. Petersburg on this
delicate mfesfory The czar receded
ihem courteously, but showed„di*incli
sarion to favor the marriage. This h
ws entitled to Ao without giving rf
feuie; but it Is said that a court busy
body heard Alexander privately say
ijteM nothing sheaid induce him to ah
low his to marry “the Corsican
parvenu.”
This was arduously reported to Na
poleon, who, from that moment, plot
ted that mighty Invasion of Russia,
which cost him 150,000 troops left in
the snow, and proved “the beginning
of the end.”
