'Fair enchantress, why so fast?
Tarry, I implore thee;
Break the chain around me east,
Raise the spell that's o'er me!
Wilt thou all my fond hopes blast,
Doom the heart to sink at last,
In the memories of - the past,
Whose fault was to adore thee?
Why has thy seductive art,
In such fetters hound me?
If so quickly we must part,
Why this charm around me?
Let compassion wring the duirt;
Rankling in my bleeding heart;
If wo must forever part,
Leave me as ye found me.
Aught from me wouldst thou obtain,
I could ne'er refuse thee;
'Were thy lips to give me pain,
Ne'er would I accuse thee;
Let me not entreat in vain—
Cower 'neath thy cold disdain—
Give me back my heart again,
If I thus must lose thee.
Napoleon's Three Warnings.
Tho celebrated Fouche, Duko of
Otranto, was retained for a time,
it is
well known, in the service of theßour
tons, after their restoration to the
throne of France. He retired to tho
town of Aix, in Province, and there
lived in affluent case upon the gains of
his long and busy career. Curiosity at
tracted many visitors around this re
markable man, and ho was habitually
free in communicating his reminiscen
ces of the great events which it had
been his lot to witness. On ono occa
sion tho company assembled in his sa
loon heard from his lips the following
story :
By degrees as Napoleon assumed
the power and authority of a king,
everything about him, even in the days
of the consulate, began to wear a court
like appearance. All the old mon
archial habitudes were revived ono by
one. Among the other revivals of this
kind, the custom of attending mass
previous to the hour of audience was
restored, and Bonaparte himself was
punctual in appearance at the St.
Cloud on such occasions.
At one particular time tho punctu
ality of Bonaparte in his attendance
on mass was rather distressing to his
wife. The quick and jealous Josephine
bad discovered that the eyes of her
husband was too much directed to a
window in the gallery, where there
regularly appeared the form and face
of a young girl of uncommon beauty.
The chestnut tresses, the brilliant eyes,
and graceful figure of this personage,
caused more uneasiness to the consul's
wife, as the stranger's glances were
bent no less often upon Bonaparte than
his were upon her.
"Who is that young girl?" said Jose
phine ono day, at the close of the ser
vice ; "what can she seek from the
First Consul? I observed her drop a
billet just down at his feet. Ile picked
it up ;I saw him."
No one could tell Josephine who the
object of her notice precisely was,
though there were some who declared
her to be an emigrant lately returned,
and one who was probably desirous of
the intervention of the First Consul in
favor of her family.
With such guesses as this the con
sul's wife was obliged to rest satisfied
for- the' time.
After the audience of the same day
had passed, Bonaparte expressed a wish
for a drive in the park, and acuordingly
wont out accompanied by his wife, his
brother Joseph, Generals Duroc and
Cambaccres, and Hortense Beanbar
nolo, wife of Louis Bonaparte.
The King of Prussia had just presen
ted Napoleon with a superb set of hor
ses, four in number, and those were
harnessed to an open chariot for the
party. The Consul took it into his
head to drive in person, and mounted
into the coaeliman's place. The char
iot sot off, but just as it was turning
into the park, iL went crash against a
stone at the gate, and the First Con•
sul was thrown CO the ground. He at
tempted to rise, but again fell prostrate
in a stunned or insensible condition.
Meanwhile, the horses sprang forward
with the chariot, and were only stop
pod when Duroe at the risk of his Mb
' threW hinaself out and seized the reins.
Josephine was taken out in a swooning
state. The rest of the party quickly I
returned to the First Consul and car
ried him back to his apartments. On
recovering his senses fully, the first
thing which ho did was to put his hand
into his pocket and pull out the slip of
paper dropped at his feet in the chapel.
Leaning over his shoulder Josephine
read these words: "Do not drive out
in your earrive to-day."
"This can have no allusion to our lute
accident," said Bonaparte. "No one
could foresee that I was to play the part
of a coachman to-day, or that 1 should
be awkward enough to drive against a
stone. Go, Duroe, and examine the
Dame obeyed. Soon after ho re
turned, very pale and tooktho FireL
Consul aside.
"Citizen Consul," said he, "had you
not struck the stone, and stopped our
drive, wo had all been lost!"
"How?" was the reply.
"There was in the carriage, conceal
ed behind the back seat, a bomb—,-a
massive bomb, and with a slow match
attached to it--kindled l Things had
been so arranged that in a quarter of
an hour we shonld.have been scattered
among the trees in the j'ark of St.
Cloud. There must be treachery close
at hand. -- ".l'euetto nmet bo told of this
—Dubois must be warned."
"Not a word, then," replied Bona
parte. "The knowledge of one plot
but engenders a second. Let Josephine
remain ignorant of t.he danger she has
escaped. Hortense, Joseph, Cambac
ores, tell none of them; and let the
Government journals say not a word
about my fall."
The First Consul was then silent for
some time. At length he said "Duroc,
you come to morrow to mass in the
'Chapel, and examine with attention a
young girl whom I shall point out to
you. Sho will occupy the fourth win
dow in the gallery, on the right. Fol
low her home, or cause her to be fol
lowed— and bring inn intelligence of
her name, her abode and her circum
stances. It will be better to do this
yourself. I would not have the police
interfere. Have you taken care of the
bomb, and removed it."
"I have,-Citizen Consul."
"Come,then, let, us again drive in
the park," said Bonaparte.
The drive Was resumed, but on this
occasion the coachman was allowed to
fulfill his own duties.
On the morrow the eye of more than
one person was turned to the window
in the gallery. But the, jealous Jose
phine sought in vain for the elegant
figure of the young girl. She was not
there. The impatient First Consul
with his confident, Duroc, were great
ly annoyed at her non-appearance, and
small was the attention paid by them
to the services that day. Their anxi
ety was fruitless. She was seen at
mass no more
The summers of Napoleon were
chiefly spent at Malmaisoa ; the win
ters at St. Cloud and the Tulllevies.
Winter had come on, aid the First
Consul had been holding court in the
great apartment of the last of these
palaces. It was the 3d of the month,
which the Republicans well call
ed nivoss, and in the evening Bona
parte entered his carriage to go to the
opera, accompanied by his aid-de-camp
Lauriston, and Generals Lannes and
Berthior. Tho vehicle was about to
start, when a female, wrapped in a
black mantle, rushed out upon the
Place Carousel, made her way into the
middle of the guards about to accom
pany Napoleon, and bold forth a pa
per crying
"Citizen Consul I read, read I"
Bonaparte, with that smile which
Burrienno describes as so irresistible,
saluted the petitionsr,ao stretched out
his hand for the missive.
"A petition, madame?" said ho in
quiringly-, and then continued, "Fear
nothing; I shall present it, and see jus
tice dono :"
"Citizen Consul 1" cried the woman
imploringly, joining her hauls.
What she would hare fu cher said
was lost. The coachman, u oit was
afterwards said was intoxic. ed, gave
the lash to h is horses,and olithiy sprung
with the speed of lightening Napo
leon, throwing into his hut he paper
he had received, remarked tolhis com
"I could not well see her .fiture, but
I thing the poor woman is pang."
The carriage dashed rapidly along;
it was just issuing from thebtreet of
St. Nicholas, when a frightfuldetona
tion was heard mingled with:arid fol
lowed by a crash of broken siindows.
The infernal machine had exploded.
Uninjured, the carriage of the Con
sul and its inmates was whirled with
undiminished rapidity to the opera.
Bonaparte entered his box with serene
brow and unruffled deportment. lle
saluted, as usual, the assembled spec
tators, to whom the news of the explo
sion came with all the speid which ru
mor exercises on such occasions.
All were stunned stir stupefied.
Bonaparte alone was porOctly calm.
He stood with crossed aq, listening
attentively to the oratoritlof Ilaydr,,
which was executed on thevenin g .
Suddenly ho remember, the paper
put in his hands. lie tool it out, mid

"In the namo of llettin, Citizen

too late.

to pieces anew on the field of Water
Bonaparte was about to quit France.
The moment had come for him to set
foot on the bark which was to convey
him to the English vessel. Friends
who had followed the fallen chief to
the very last were standing by him to
give him a final adieu. He waived his
hand to those around, and a smile was
on the lips which had recently given
the farewell kiss to the imperial eagle.
At this instant a woman broke the
band that stood before Napoleon. She
was in the prime of womanhood; not a
girl, but yet young enough to retain
unimpaired that beauty for which she
would at any time have been remarka
ble among it crowd of beauties. - --Fier
features were full of anxiety and sad
ness, adding interest to her appearance
even at that moment. ''Sire !" said
she presenting a paper at that moment,
"read ! read!" The Emperor took the
epistle presented to him, but kept his
eye on the presenter. He seemed, it
may be, to feel at that instant the per
fumed breeze of the park of St. Cloud,
to hear choristers chanting melodious.
ly in the chapel as he had heard them
in other days. Josephine, Duroc and
all his friends, come haply before him,
and among them the face which be was
wont to see at' the fourth window in
the gallery. The eye was now on that•
countenance in reality, altered, yet the
same. These illusory recollections
were of short duration. Napoleon
shook his head and held the paper up
to his eye. After perusing its con
tents ho took the paper between his
hands and tore it to pieces, scattering
the fragments in the air.
"Stop, sire," said the woman, "follow
the advice! Be warned ! It is yet
time !"
"No," replied he; and taking from
his finger a beautiful oriental ruby,
valuable souvenir of the Egyptian cam
paigns, held it out to the woman. She
took it kneeling, and kissing the hand
which presented it. Turning his head,
the Emperor then stepped into the
boat, which wanted to take him to the
vessel. For long afterward he was pin
ing on the rock of St. Helena.
Thus the three warnings, two were
useless because neglected until the
danger had occurred, and the third—
which prognosticated Napoleon's fate
if once in the power of his adversaries
—the third was rejected.
"But, who was this woman, Duke
of Otranto ?" •
"Oh," replied Fondle, "I know not,
with certainty. The Emperor, if ho
know ultimately BOOMS to have kept
the secret."
All that is known respecting the
matter is, that a female related to St.
Regent, ono of the authors of the ex
plosion of the street St. Nicholas, died
at the hospital ilotal Dieu, in 1837, and
that round her neck was suspended,
by a silk ribbon, the exquisite oriental
ruby of Narolcon.
A soldier whose regiment lay in a
garrison town in England, was brought
before his commanding officer for some
offence. lie was an old offender, and
had often been punished. "bore ho is
again," said the officer, on his name be
ing mentioned: "Everything—flog
ging, disgrace,imprisonment—has been
tried with him."
Whereupon the sergeant stepped for.
ward, and apologizing for tho liberty
ho took, said : "There is one thing
which has meet' been done with him
yet, sir."
"What is that, sir ?" was the answer.
" Well sir," said the sergeant, "Ile has
never been forgiven."
"Forgiven ?" exclaimed the Colonel,
surprised at the suggestion.
lie reflected for a few moments, or
dered the eulpt it to be brought in, and
asked what he had to say to the charge.
"Nothing, sir," was the reply; "only
I am sorry for what I have done."
Turning a kind and pitiful look on
the man who expected nothing else
than that punishment would be inereas•
ed with the repetition of his offense ;
the Colonel addressed him, saying,
"Well, we have decided to tforgive
you !"
The_ soldier was struck dumb with
astonishment; the tears started to his
and he wept like a child. lle
was humbled to the dust; ho thanked
the officer and retired; to bo the old
refractory, incorrigible man? No; ho
was another man from that day for
