In the year 1807, when the peace of Tilsit put a stop to the conquests of Napoleon in Gormany, the king of Pi uHsiu, exhausted by his astonishing efforts to maintain the war against France, reduced his army to the peace establishment.' Consequently many officers who wore r,tationed at Ham burg received a furlough, or were dis missed from the service for A short time, and a life of military danger and activity gave place to habits of idle ness and dissipation. In the early part of tno summer, several of these officers, having dined together and sacrificed rather freely at tlie Blirilie Of tlie JOlly gOd, attJOUHl- e(j toward evening to the Exchange Coffee house, the most noted hotel in the city.

The youngest of the joyous nana, tne jj.iron ue V , who bore the commission of a lieutenant in the army, was about 25 years of age, wealthy, handsome and elegantly formed. But his mind did not corresnond with his person ; he was vain, insolent, self-conceited and ; seated alone at a tabic.

' An old major, whoso embroidered coat wa decorated with military or ders, and on whose German pbysiog noiny waa depicted frankness, true courairo and loyalty, who entered the coflde-houae with 'theso hair-brained youths, now addressed the baron in a low voice, but which' notwithstand ing could be heard in all parts of tho room: "My young friend, you are in sulting a stranger without provocation; you are foolishly guilty of a grout im pertinence, and your conduct, with that of your applauding comrades, begins to disgust me.' I bog you wiU pursue this fooUsh joke no further." ,The baron; with. his companions, accordiibgly adjourned to a neighbor ing room, and cominenced pluying cards. To judge from their numerous jokes, followed by loud peals of laugh ter, it would seem that the young of fleer's folly and imprudence was al ready forgottou.,, An hour passed away, all was mirth and jollity, the baron had gained a considerable sum, and hiH spirits were proportiohatolv buoyant, when the little man in black entered the room, and slowly i ap- euiereu mo ruuw, um o.v,.,v . -r preached his chair, tapped him gently on his shoulder, and requested to speak to him in onother apartment The baron regarded him with a look of disdain over his shoulder, uttered ... jii i .i i,ri,n,l i id i au ui vuaama ivo v. face. "Sir," said tho man in black, in a decided and manly tone, "you labor under a trifling mistake, which I must take the liberty to coraect. I am neither a tailor nor a schoolmaster. I have the honor to bo a post-captain in tho EnsUsh navy, very much at your service. You have insulted mo, and I demand f-atisfaction. To-morrow morning, at 7 o'clock, I shall await you here. . Bring pistols with you." ' The astonished baron, who during this address had risen from his chair, changed countenance more than once, and then answered only by a low bow of acquiescence; he dare not taint hini solf to speak, lest his tongue should betray his terror. The captain polite ly saluted the rest of tho company and left the house. With him departed all thegayetyof the lieutenant He bocamo thought ful nnd taciturn ; his mind wandered from the game, and he soon lost more than he giined. Ho was unnerved with terror, whilo reflecting on tho consequences of his folly. What an advantage must an adversary possess over him, who could bear with so much calmness a series of degrading insults, and who could propone a duel with such imnertnrbablo mug fruiil!

I must have my own way in this par ticular, and after I have settled the affair with this gentloman, each of his companions who amused tiiemselyes last evening at my expense, and who instead of restraining the imperti nence of their friend, laughed at his ridiculous follies, must one after an other front the muzsleofmy pistol Now, sir, I am ready. Take good aim, for if you miss me you area dead man," ' ,' ' ' The lioutenant presented his weap on, drew the trigger, and tlie ball passed through the Englishman's hat "Now, sir, it is my turn," said the captain. "I was last evening made a butt for your railleries and your , ... t.i: insulted me, covered me with humil iation. I was a schoolmaster, atail- or, a village babbler. What am 1 now t A man.

Have you a last adieu to send a father a mother, a sister or any other person who is dear to yout I have here the mater ials necessary for writing; and will ingly grant you time to make any arrangements you may think neces sary." The young man muttered some thing of which an . humblo "I thank you" was all that was intelligible. "In thut case," said the Englishman, "riince reconciliation between us is absolutely imposssible, and it is ne cessary that your blood should wash out the affronts which I have receiv ed, I bog you to implore by a fervent but brief prayer the mercy of the Eternal Bower." Then, taking off his hat, he look ed around upon tho mute terrified spectators of this closing scene, who, by a spontaneous impulse uncovered themselves in like manner. For a minute or two thore reigned among the group a religious and solemn si louce, which was only interrupted by a a tho hard broathaigf. of tno suuering lteutenant ' - At length, seizing his pisto and nnint.inir towards the lieutenant, he towards the valet who stood near - - . ,j .i. iaf,.! him, and handed him the pistol, "Take it," said he, "this officer is not worthy of the honor of dying by the hand of an Lnghshman.

' Tendencies to strength or diseaso, to virtues or vioes and to all traits of mind and body are trans' mitted from one' generation to an other. Every quality of organio life tends to be hereditary. Looks, voice, manners and habits are hand ed down from parents to posterity. Somo families are marked by pecu liar features i we saw, not long ago, tho portrait of man who lived 200 voarsago. His nose was long ' and broad. His posterity retain this pe culiar nasal form. A child was born some ten years ago, whose Jather died . some six months before , his birth. This child in early infancy always soized his right ear and poll ed it, whenever he undertook! to think The father and grandfather did the same. The members of a certain family in an Eastern state have had supernumerary toes and lingers for as many generations as their history extends. The "porcu pine" or Lambert family had certain Eortions of the body covered with ristles, that resemble the quills of a noroupine. One member bf the rfomily married and had ' six children who had the same bristle covering as the father. Many . diseases are - hereditary. Consumption, rheumatism, gout, in sanity are examples. 'Some ' families for many generations are annoyed more or loss, by disorders of the , di gestive organs, the stomach and the liver. Among domestic animals the same hereditary law prevails. Con tracted feet, ring bones, spavin and other maladios of which the horse is subjeoted are hereditary. Some dis eases of shoep and cattle are trans missible. This tendency to certain traits and conditions is not limited to diseases or deformities. Good qualities are . inherited. . Health, strength and endurance, , bulk, form and beauty are usually transmitted from one generation' to another. Fatness and leanness, hardness and wiriness of muxlos, working hurl and living long are all hereditary. An interesting hereditary law is, that certain qualities of mind and certain tendencies of body show themselves at certain periods of life.' All. the females of a certain family became insane at 60 years of age for -as many generations as the ancestry can be traced. ' These are striking illustrations of what we see on a smaller scale. They are enough to show that parents may exert a good or bad influence upon the health and character of their children. They may . aid the mother to realize that her health and character have an influence upon the mind and body of her ohildren. States of mind and conditions of her body may be handed down to posterity.- . ' Her conduct during gestation ex erts a decided effect on the child. An habitual state of mind and body, a good or bad temper, sound or poor health, exert a positive influence on tho coming child. Great and good men are usually the children of great and good mothers. The healthy mother has healthy children. , The sweet-tempered mother has sweet teuipcred children. This may not be always true, bocause other in fluence modify the results.. Tlie coming mother, then, should do what she can to secure mental, moral, and physical health during her period of gestation. This period : is supposed to be full of danger. But if tno coming mother regards tne laws of health, avoids inactivity, and excesses and indulgences, she need fear no eviL She should realize that a relation exists between her own conduct and health and the proper growth of her offspring. New-born infants may have good health, but time may show that disease, con tracted during gestation, mty be latent for months and years. And so it is with moral traits of character. They are developed by cirennutrooes. As a rule, it is true that the health of the child is secured by the health, comfort an I chocrfullnoM of the mother. Her health may not de mand an unuKual supply of food. Miie should eat as much as she can waII .1i.nM.t .n,l naif, aa much aa hr' appetite may crave. A moderate amount of food, moderate exerciito, a.hrfn!na. an I the etdtivstion of noble traits of character, will usually linduf the xrt result.
