In France the eate of all the nobility
hns ceased to i.it. The revolution lnieaded
them, banislied them, tore in pieces their
parchments and letters patent, destroyed
and burned tin ir castles, appropriated their
estates nnd thoroughly abolished them.
The emirrants who returned a quarter
of a century after the deluge were mere
memories gliosis, spook, apparitions: they
had lost their reality. Napo'enn sought b

titles, hut not an aristocracy. Even Un
titles have become worthies. A ilar of
the adenturer clings to tho.' assuming ti
tles, for every one knows miit of them are usurped. That thev are to lie

The very few families who have inherited a legal title of nobility in
regular descent from father to son no longer form the first ranks of French
society. In matters of state they have nothing to say. In diplomacy and
in the army they are scarcely to he found, and in the leading professions
not at all. They have no power and then fore no influence. Tin y are
not the richest and therefore are not the most elegant. The greatest mil
