How Rothschild Made His Fortune.
. Rothschild's greatest achievement in
over-reaching distance and his fellow
speculators was ia 1815. He was near
tho Chateau d' ilougumont on tho 18th
of June, watching as eagerly as Bona
parte and Wellington themselves, the
battlo of Waterloo. 4 H fy long ho
followed the fighting with etrainod eyes
knowing that on its issue depended his
welfare as wnll as Enropes. At eun
sot he saw that victory was well with
Wellington and the allies. Then with
out n moment's delay he mounted a
horf e that had been kept in readiness
for hi n, and hurried homewards.
Everywhere on liis road fresh borses
or carriages were wa.iting to help him
over the ground, Kiding or driving
all night, he reaohrd Ostend at day
break, to find the sea bo sterny that
the boatmen refused to trust them
selves to it. At htet he prevailed upon
u fiilierman to make a venture for a
reward of i!80 In that way he man
aged to reach Dover. At Dover and
at irituruie.lia.i3 btagos on tbe rond to'
London other horses were in waiting,
and he was in Londoa bolbro midnight.
Nextmorning, the morning of tho 20th
of June, he win ene of tho first to en
ter the stock exchange. Ia ' gloomy
whiapers he told those who, as usual,
crowded round him for newe, that
Bluchcr and his Prussians had been
routed by Napoleon bofore Wellington
bad been able to reach the field; that
by himself be could not possibly suc
ceed, and therofore tbe cause of Eng
land and her allies was lost. The funds
foil as tbey were Meant to fall. Every
one was anxious to eell, and Rothschild
and his accredited agonts scoffed at
all who brought them scrip to purchase.
But scores of unknown agents woro at
work all that day aad all the next.
Before the stock exchange closed on
the afternoon of the second, day when
Nathan Rothschild's strong boxes wore
full of paper, be announced an hour or
so before tbe news came through
other channels, tbe real issues of the
contest. Very soon the funds were
higher than they bad been during ma
ny previous weeks'; and Rothschild
found that he had made something like
n million pounds by Lis quick traveling
and clever representation.' Other mil
lions were collected rather more slow
ly, by other transactions of like na
ture. Nathan Meyer Rothschild, by

Getting a Wife.
Our beaux nnd belles may be inter
ested to know tho qualifications of a
good wife, as given by the groat Indian
sago, Auvral, high authority among
the devout Hindoo nations in matri
monial matters.- no Bays: "Tho girl
must be only a third of her husband's
ago, not very black, not yellow com
plexion, not a cripple, not deformed,
not vicious nor unhealthy," nor of low
origin; but ene who has been well
brought up, and who spoaks with pro
priety. Sho must not iuherit a family
malidy,nor possess a masculine appear
ance; must neither speak tuiclt nor
thin, nor croak like a raven; must not
koop her eyes shut, nor have thorn wide
open; must not have thick ankles, nor
dimples in her cheeks nor goose skin,
nor white nails, nor redeyes, nor fat
hands, nor duck-like feet. She must
neither be short, nor tall, nor fat,- Bor
thin, but very middling, ner teeth
must be very elose set, and her eye
brows wide apart; finally, her gait
must resemble that of a young elephant:

A Walk with Louis Napoleon
The Sick Man of France.
The Pans corresponJemt of Chicaf
I had, I will not say tbe pleasure,
but the opportunity, to accompany the
Emperor yesterday in tbe walk which
he was taking on foot, loaning upon
General Fleury 's arm. I mean that I
walked intentionally along tho same
path. I observed him "a cat may
look at a king" with the utmost at
tention. My conclusion is that he it
as low us any man can be to keep
alive. His thighs have bo little strength
in them that it is as much as be can do -to
put one foot after the other, and he
is obliged to drag bit foet rather than
walk, thus making ft sort of eircle with
his foot every timo be brings it for
ward. His shoulders are completely
hollow, and ho looks like tho letter S.
His complexion is of a leaden h no, like
that of liver complaint. The dull and
glassy eye is the earns as ever. There
was not a shout, not a bow. It seemed
as though ho was present at his own
funeral while etill alive. The em
pire and the ' Emperor are docidely
both on their lust legs.
