NUN DAY MARCH 7. ! FACTS REGARDING NAPOLEON. Id Prince Metternich's memoirs of Napo leon, he presents some interesting facts retfard ing the Awkwardness and bashful neas of the Eaiperor in society. There was probabl not a gentleman in all Eur.. e who was so conf nsed and oat f place in company ef ladies as the man wlie stood with his imperial heel opon the necks of half a dozn Kingdoms In society he was only able to indulge in the raest commonplace remarks about the weather and if a woman perpetrated a repartee at his expense, he was covered with confusion and not able to reply. When a King sent him a note which was not coached in suitable terms, his reply was an invasion and his revenge a vie tory. He banished Madam de atael from France because he really feared the woman's keen tongue mere than the combined armies of the world. He bore the flag of Fiance across the bridge at L di where the air was thick with iron ; at the next drawing room reception he was trembling like a school boy. He was all the wh'le striving to overcome his traits of bashfulness and awkwtrdimss, and employed Talma the actor to teach him atti tudes. Such insufferable vanity caa hardly be believed in ene reckoned so colossal in miud and character as the ruler of a hemisphere, yet Metternicu is corroborated in his assertions by other writers. So much is coming to light re garding the characteristics of the mm that one cannot help believing that he must have had friends who adroitly managed a sort of imperial beom for him, if the expression may be applied. The awe in which he was held by his foes amounted to a snperstition, and no doubt the fostering of this idea on t he part of his adversaries won half the day with him. His soldiers believed him invincible, and they went on the battle field as confident of success as if their foes were utterly destitute of arms and amnnition. Had the great man made some trivial mistake early in his career, liis power and prestige would have been nipped in the bud. Had his nose been pulled by a scav anger or had he been kicked out of a barber shop when he was a colonel, the crown of France would have never pressed his ambi tious brow and Waterloo, Australitz and Mot eow would have occupied lie place in history not already assigned them by geographical loca tion. The man has left no lasting mommies. of greatness, and his name only suggests a reign of blood and terrorism, beginning when he was a bully in Paris and ending when he was a refugee at Waterloo. MISCELLANEOUS. COWLEY BACKED BY THE CHURCH The Episcopal Church of New Ywrk still stands by the brute Cowley, who has bee sent to the State Prison for starviag childrei To stand sponger te such a mountain of iniquity only brings disgrace to any denonti nation. The Sao Francisco CJironicle hits some well deserved blows in tie following : The Chronkles New York correspondent intimates that considerable sympathy is felt in certain church circ.es for the reverend scoundrel who has been sent to the peniten tiary for starving little children consigned to his care and other atrocious crimes against humanity. Such sympathy, if it exists, re flects little credit upon the sympathizers or upon the clerical profession. Cowley was fairly tried by an impartial jury, and though he was ably defended the evidence was so overwhelming as to leave no doubt as to his guilt. That a man in "liolr order" should be sent as a criminal to a penal iimtitut'on where he formerly occupitd the position of chaplain nny naturally be regarded by bis clerical friend as in a certain sense a disgrace tit "the cloth," lut when public opinion is unanimous in coudi'iiiiiatioa of the criiniual, and there is no pre'ns in any quarter that he a;is not keen j isllv c mvictttd, the disgrace cannot be wiped out by ateiMp?iiig to sbleid him from punish ment, On the contrary, by miking common c. use w ith the criminal, his clerical bre hren will 'only bring epoa themselves a share of the condemnation, by showing that they are more solicitous to protect the good name of their order, even at the expense of shielding a seoundrel, than to promote the ends wf jus tice. We trest that the report to the effect that Bishop Potter and his clergy ar about to at tempt sane interposition in the " Shepherd's" behalf iay prove unfounded. It is iiuite cer taiu that sch an attempt could have no other effect than to damage the cause of religion, and create even a greater scandal than the crimes of this clerical hypocrite. To see the clergy manifesting a disposition to s'and by one another throagh thick and thia, and band ing together to shield one of their order from justice, would be a spectacle calculated to re vive unpleasant recollections of some of the disgraceful and odions incidents in nediieval ecclesiastical history. There is prospect of a war bet ween Russia and China. The Standard Con. of Bodie has declared a dividend of 75 cents. The Maine Republican delegates have been instructed for Blaine. Twenty-fear deaths from diptheria in Hen ey Lake Valley this winter. Lizzie Price, the American widow of Fet cher, has returned to the stage.

The total income of the United States Gov eminent this year is estimated by the Treas ury Department at $300,000,000. The estate of Dr. H. H.

The bnllion shipments from Salt Lake City continue to increase daily, and the prospects are that they will soon re ich $209,000 weekly. Two men were killed and a number wound e 1 bv the breaking of a skin in the shaft of the Shurtliffd iron mine, Watertown, New York, Friday.

Jessie Raymond publishes a card in which she declares that the charges against Senator Hill, in connection with her name, are without foundation, and that the suit was instituted without her knowledge. A plan is about being carrird into effect for deepening the Seine, by ahich vessels drawing nine feet of water will be enabled to reach the eastern extremity of Paris. The works will cost about $9,000,000. De Lesseps says he is confident that within the period of eight years and at an expense not exceeding 100,000,000' he can open com munication between the Atlantic and Pacific The Shooting Bot. The father of Benny Barlow, the little fellow who shot Roy Clark in Aurora, informs us that Benny is an unus ually good-natured, mild and even timid boy; that he not only always avoided quarreling and fighting himself, but frequently interfees to amicably adjust difficulties between his play mates. He never owned nor earried a pistol, and the one he had on the occasion of the shotmg, he had just borrowed from a boy and had no idea that it was loaded, or that it was a "shooting" pistol as the only kind he had ever handled before was a toy pistol for firing off paper caps.

Sir Edwin Landseer, the artist, was once looking at his wn pictures in the South Ken ingten Museum, and seeing some dust on ene of then, leaned over the barrier aud wiped it eflf with his handkerchief. Instantly a po liceman was upon him. " What are yon a-do-ing of?" said he? " a touching of that there picture?" " Why," answered Sir Edwin, smil ing, " I've often touched it before." " Have you though? then more shame for yer!" cried the indignant peeler, "Yon come along wi' ine."

Leverrier, the Chief Astronomer of France, confident in the real existence of the planet ulcan, has lately calculated the orbit of that mysterious planet from the various recorded nstaneea of dark spots sen for a few hours only upon the face of the sun, aud he now an nounces that the planet may be looked for at about this time to the east of the sun, and about twenty sunbreadths from that orb. A door standiug open, which would readily yield ou its hinges to a gentle push, is not moved by a cannon ball passing through it. The ball, in passing through, overcomes the whole force of cohesion among the atoms of wood, but its force acts for so short a time, ow ing to its rapid passage, that it is not sufficient to affect the inertia of the door to an extent to produce motion.
