CITY OF TRUE COURAGE EXEMPLIFIED. in tne year io , late one evening in Angusl.adciisecrowd thronged the streets and promenades of Paris, for the intense heat of the day had rendered every one eager lo refresh himself, by inhaling the soli breeze that had sprung up in the eve ning. However, ere long the clouds of vapor, which had been floating so wanton ly in the air, began to' muster their forces, and frown, till suddenly they poured into the city and surrounding country a perfect flood of lain. Those who w ere out of doors sought the nearest shelter, and three young men, who seemed to be comrades, ran into a cabinet of study, whither the shower had already driven almost as many as the room could contain. Instead of I'ullowiiiL' the example nf ihe rest who had entered, most of whom hud taken up a book or paper to bruuile the time, these three youths kept np ceiiMiiitl com ersalion, to the evident annex mice ! ll.tir neighbors. Meanwhile one yi iilleiii.in only seemed In pass unnoti ced the bail manners of the young men, urn! to cetiliime his occupation seemingly in L'und humor and un. ninny ed. 1 1 was sealed by a table and seemed as if taking notes, for he wrote from time lo lime in a lai ie portfolio that w as open be l"re him. lie appeared to be a man a bout thirty years old, of a calm and digni fied demeanor, wilh forehead broad and finely de eloped, lined with furrows, not made by time but by intense labor of a vast mid fruitful intellect. There was an air el dis'inciinii about him that could not be misniii;er!-i noil, ah hough his garments were mii(iei ami plainly made, bearing no mark of eiit!inc-s or fashion. His appearance contrasted sinpolarly enough w ith that of the three youi g men who still continued to t.ilk and laugh, in defiance of Ihe mur murs and cum ntiptnotis looks w hich such indecorous o, tabid elicited from (he crow d. Their heightened color gave unmistakable slj:ns of intoxication, un erih 'less their language and manners Jmu ed tlial lliey belonged lo the upper ranks of society. One of ihcrn, Ernest Dasinnn, who had made him-elf remarkable l y t e spright lines ol his repartees, threw occasional furtive glance- inwnrds the stranger, and .in i'l.'V-cniiald,' expression of anger and ellaeini ciirle.i his lip, because it was ev ident hi- wit was unnoticed by the most distinguished individual in the room. So dcsii oiii. i ii he to attract the stringer's aiteii'iou. that al length he rudely touched him on tlie shoulder, and said : Sr. j on ci in to be very much absorb ed indeed.' '1 hi. impertinent question elicited no response, the stranger l:ever raised his eyes, and llrnest turned crimson with vexation, while his comrades smiled in railli ry, and one of them cried, 'I'll bet my Imrso against yours that you cannot make llial man speak lo y nil. Cm yen mil nunc your chair, sir?' aid Ernest, 'you inconvenience me.' These words were uttered in an imperti nent lone, at the same time that Ernest drew his scat nearer to the stranger. 1 haxe the honor lo inform you, sir, that you ure very much in my way,' again cried Ernest, while he touched the struti gtr roughly with his elbow. At this moment the stranger raised his eyes and Ernest read in tbq look he cast upon him more of pity than anger. ExasperateJ to the lust degree by this moderation, which he mistook for disdain, he again pushed the stranger wilh his el bow, when the stranger raised himself w iih the intention of lea ing Ihe room, bul the movement he made upset the writing table and spilt the ink on Ernest's clothes. 'If you wish to insult me, sir,' said Er nest, foainiugvith rage, 'you might have chosen a more decent mode ; it is too bate sir, I will not submit to it.' His friends seeing that the affair must lake a serious turn, essayed lo uppease him, bill he rep.ilsed them rudely, mid the stranger replied in a calm voice, while only a slight tremor could be teen about his lips. ' ' Sir, please accept my apologies for what is but an accident. 1 know not how you can torture aught that I have said or done into an insult, for surely none was intended.' . And his piercing eye teemed to probe the very aoul ol t-rnesi, w lio was con strained to make a violent effort, in order to meet calmly the stranger gaze, llu miliated by the other's superiority he was mad w ith rage. 'Sir,' cried he, 'I persist in saying you have offended tne, and I will receive none of votir idle excuses.' 'Nevertheless it is the only reparation in mr -power to make. The oltence of whioh you compain was not intended ; is not that enough P' '1 repeat to yuu, sir, that, t is insuffi WARSAW, MISSOURI, SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 14, !S1j. cient. IWy honor has been wounded, and I demand satisfaction at the point of, ihe sword." 'I will fight no duel.' 'Then you are a coward.' The stranger turned deadly pale, his beautiful features contracted visibly, and the witnesses of this scene expected eve ry moment to hear words nf long suppress ed anger escape his lips, when pressing his hand upon his heart as if lo still ils throbbings, he said with a troubled but sweet nice, looking at his assailant : 'You have insulted me, young man, grievously insulted me; but may yon pardon your self as now do I , Then making his way through the crowd, he disappeared. The smile of triumph that had mounted to Ernest's lip, disappeared at the last words of the stranger and when lie could no longer see, he remained stupefied, and humbled between his Iriends, who knew not whether to felicitate him or not, upon his ictory. The change in his manner had been so sudden and remarkable. Whence came ihe courage that bore up that in in who showed no anger, when thus instilled and wantonly called a coward? Want of courage was in Ernest's esti mution a monstrous crime; and a secret iiitiiiton assured him lhat his adversary, so far from being a coward, was one of those noble and elevated beings, whose esteem he would be proud to obtain, ni;d whose friendship he would cherish with delight. 'Oh ! if this injurious word had not es caped my lips, how gladly would I pursue him, and implore a second time the pardon he once so nobly proffered me ; my con science is wounded fatally I cannot dis semble il. It wa myself nlone lhat did the w.rong ; but at least this unfortunate adventure will cure me of intemperance. I wiil become intoxicated no more.' Il was very perceptible that the good qualities that had been conferred upon Er nest by tint lire and a line education, had been rather (hanged than destroyed by the trilling and dissipated life he had led. Separated Irmn his Iriends at the door of ihe reading room, he took Ihe first street that came in his way, and without know ing whither he went, was soon in a cloom- y and deserted part of the city. 1 lelding entirely to Ihe agitation of his mind, he hurried on, wilh no other aim than to kill time, and as he looked only on the ground, he was not aware that a bad looking man followed his footsteps. tNion. how eer, ihe man annroached and aske I him 'ihe hour.' The night is too dark,' rashly replied Ernest, 'for me to see the time, but 1 svip- ose lis nasi ten. Scarcely had he spoken, when he was grasped lightly by the collar, his hat throw u oil", and he received a violent blow lhat knocked him dow n. 'Thieves, assassins.' io .claiine.!, hilo making everv effort to keep oil' the rulHaiis, (for there were two,) who had Hssailed him. I hey had already taken his watch, whpn one of them cried out, 'Let's despatch him, his cries w ill betray us,' and the knile was ulready aimed at his breast, when man armed wi;i a sword cane tell upon the illaius, who were of course cowards, and they immediately ran, not, however, without wounding the stranger, who had attacked them. 'Generous man,' said Ernest,, seizing his hand with ardor, 'you have periled your own hie to save mine how shall I Lie able ever to requite you r ' 1 is to dod uloini llial your gratitude should he addressed,' iuiwered his friend, I have been but the instrument of his will.' Al the sound of ihe stranger's voice, Ernest struck his forehead in agony and exclaimed: 'O wretch lln.t I am, to have called him a coward. Oh, sir,' pursued he, turning towards the stranger, who then recognis ed him, the baseness of my conduct to wards you, and the nobility of yours to wards me, Iiave taken Irom me all pow er of justification in opposing pardon lo ii- jury, and showing w hut is true courage, although it has made me despise myself, yet 1 thank yuu lor the lesion il will live lorever in my mtinory.

' . ' . 'I accept most gratefully your pardonY said Ernest, seizing the hand the stranger i retented to him, 'all is noble generosity on'yoiir side, and although I have no claim to your esteem, believe at least that I ap pfeeiate and Honor your virtue,' . Trembling with emotion, Ernest fullow ed his deliverer', without perceiving lhat his steps were directed to a quarter of the town far from his own residence when opposite a house in (he faubourg: Si. Ger man, ha slopped and bid Ernest good high!. And may net return lo-visit you n ihe morning?' eagerly demanded Ernest. 'You know not lhat you will have lo as cend lo the fourth story,' answered the stranger, smiling. Ernest lei', a thrill of delight 'I am rich and I can be of sen ice lo him, for he is poor,' and at this moment the light hone upon them, and Ernest almost shrieked: 'You are wounded oh, may I not as sist you to your room? Lean upon me, my arm will sustain you; I ask it as a great boon !' and they both ascended to his apartments, when the stranger sank upon a chair, for though his wound was not fa tal, il had made him very faint. Ernest affrighted, rung a bell, and immediately a venerable looking old man appeared at the door. 'What is the matter?' cried he, running towards the wounded man ; 'divine good ness, w ho has thus wounded my master the Count ?' and he looked suspiciously at Ernest. 'Calm yourser, my old friend,' said the Count, 'see, il is but a scratch.' 'lint a scratch indeed ; see he swoons.

'In ihe name of Cod, . my master, the Count, answer your old frier.d ; tell him you will not die, and that ! yon will not thus expose yourself again. ' 'Lei me go for the surgeon,' cried Er- while listening lo the lender lament of the old servant, and remembering his own part in the ad affair. ci.'tfasa ssfit better now,' and extending his hand to his old servant, he added, 'fear not for me a night's rest will restore me be calm, my wor.hy old friend, to-morrow will repa.r 'Am 1 yen will return to your impru- ilent hie! but I declare, if you persist in thus exposing your life, 1 will inform jour aunt, who hues you as her own son, ind who w.ll disinherit you-yes, sir, Count, she will disinherit you.
