The story of Napoleon's repudiation of
his gentle Empress has been told a hun
dred times, but never with MOre.gracemid
pathos than by Mr. Abbott in the follow.
ing, which we publish from his recently
published life of Josephine : . • .
At length the fatal day arrived for the
announcement to Josephine. It was the
last day of November,lB o £ l . The Em
peror and Empress dind 'at Fontainebleau
alone. She seems to have had a' pro.
sentiment that her - doom was sealed, for
that day she 'had been in her retired apart
ment weeping bitterly. As. the dinner
hour approached, she bathed her swollen
eyes, and tried to regain her composure.
They sat down at the table in silence. --
Napoleon did not speak. Josephine could
not trust her voice to utter a word. Nei
ther ate n mouthful. Course after course
was brought in and removed 'untouched.
A mortal paleness revealed the anguish
of each heart. Napoleon, in his embar
rassment, mechanically, and apparently
unconsciously, struck the edge of his glass
with his .knife, while .lost in thought. A
more melancholy meal probably never was,
witnessed. The attendants around the
. table seemed to catch the infection, and
moved softly and silently in the discharge
of their duties,as if they were in the cham
ber of the dead. At last the ceremony of
dinner was over, the attendants were dis
missed, and Napoleon, rising and closing
the door with his own hand, was left alone
with Josephine. Another moment of most
painful silence ensued, when the Emperor,
pale . as death, and trembling in every
nerve, approached the Empress. He took
her hand, placed it upon his heart, and in
flattering accents, said, I Joscphinft! my,
own good 'Josephine ! you know how I
have loved you. It is to_you that I owe
the only few moments of happiness 1 have
known in the world. Josephine.! my des
tiny is stronger than my will. My dear
est affections must yield to the interests of
France. . ,
Josephine's brain reeled ; her blood
ceased to circulate? she fainted, fell life
less upon the floor. Napoleon, alarmed,.
threw open 'the door of the• saloon, and
called for help. Attendants from the an
te-room, immediately entered. Napoleon
took a taper from the made!, and uttering
not a word, but pale awl trembling, mo
tioned to the Count de Beaumont to take
the Emprc3s in his arms. She was still
unconscious of everything, but began to
murmur, in tones of anguish, I Oh, .no !
yoU cannot surely do it: • You would not
kill me: Tho Emperor led the way, thro'
a dark passage, tome private staircase
which conducted o tlie l epartment of the
Empress. Thk.l.agitatien of Napoleon
seemed now to increase. He uttered some
incoherent sentences about n nervous at
tack; and finding the stairs too steep and
narrow for the Count de Beaumont to bear
the body of the helpless Josephine unas
sisted, ho gave the light to an attendant,
and, supporting her limbs himself, they
reached the door of her bed-roonr. Na
poleon then dismissing his male attendants,
and laying Josephine upon her bed, rang
for her waiting woman. He hung over
her with an expression of the most intense
affection and anxiety until she began to,
revive. But the -moment. consciousness
seemed returning, he left the room., Na-
poleon did not even throw himself upon ,
his bed that night. He paced the floor un
til the. dawn of the morning. The rnlal
surgeon, Corvisart, passed. tho night .at .
the . bedside of the empress. • .
- Every hour the restless, yet unretenting
emperor called at her door to inquire con
cerning her situation. ''On recovering
from my swoon,' says Josephine, ' I Per--

The three Melon Seeds
"A Sexton of tho Old School" contrib
utes the following to tho Boston Tran-
Three young gentlemen who had fin-
ished the most substantial part of their re
past, ware lingering over their fruit and
wino, at an eating house, in London, when
a man of middle age and 'middle stature
entered'tho public room, where they were
sitting, seated himsel fat one end of a small
unoccupied table, and calling the waiter,
ordered a single mutton chop 'and a glass
of ale. His appearance, at first view, was
not likely to arrest the attention of any
one. His hair was getting to be thin and
grey ; the expression of his countenance
was sedate, with a single touch perhaps,
of melancholy ; and he wore a grey sur•
tout, and a standing •collar, which mani
festly had seen service, if the wearer had
not—just such a thing as an officer would
bestow upon his serving man. Ho might
be taken plausibly enough, for a country
magistrate, or an attorney of limited prac
tice or a school master.
He continued to masticate his chop and
I s ip his ale in silence, without lifting his
eyes from the table, until a melon seed
sportively snapped from between the thumb
and finger of one of the gentlemen at the
opposite table, struck him on the right car.
His eyes was instantly upon the aggressor;
and his ready intelligence gathered from
the illy suppeessed merriment - of the party,
that this petty impertinence was inten
The stranger stopped and picked up the
melon seed, •and a scarcely perceptible
smile passed over his features, as he care
fully wrapped up the seed, in a piece of
paper and plYced it in his pocket. This
singular procqedure,with their preconceiv
ed impression of their customer, somewhat
elevated as they were by the wine they
had partaken, capsized their gravity en
tirely, and a burst of irresistable laughter
proceeded from the group.
Unmoved by this rudeness, the stranger
continued to finish his frugal repast in
quiet, until another melon seed from the
same hand struck him on the right elbow.
1 This, alsd, to the infinite amusement of
the other party, ho picked from the floor,
I and carefully deposited with the first.
Amidst shouts of laughter' the third
melon seed was soon after discharged,
which hit him upon the left breiist. This
also, he very deliberately took from the
floor, and deposited with the other two.
As lie rose and was paying for his re
past, the gravity of these sporting gentle
men became slightly subdued. It was not
easy to account for this. Lavater would
not have been able to detect tho slightest
evidence of irritation or resentment upon
the features of the.sti anger. He seemed
a little taller, to be sure, and the carriage
of his head might have appeared to them
1 rather more erect. He walked to the ta
ble, at which they were sitting, and with
that air of dignified calmness, which is a
thousand times more terrible than wrath,
drew a cam from his pocket, and present
,ed it with perfect civility to the offender,
who could do no less than offer his own
in return. When the stranger unclosed
his surtout to take the card from his pock
et, they had a glance at the undress coat'
of a -military man. The card -disclosed
his rank, and a brief inquiry at the bar was
sufficient for the rest. Ho was a captain,
,whom ill health and long service had en
titled to halt' ray. In early life he' had
been engaged in several affairs of honor,
and in the dialect of the fancy was a dead
The next morning a note arrived at the
aggresspr's residence, containing a chal

Mr. Bierce in his early history of the
township of Northfield, Summit County,
relatcsthefollowing singular casein which
an innocent man came near conviction of
murder. He says :
In July 1826 one of those singular af
fairs occurred in this township which has
a rival only in the celebrated case of
Bournes in Vermont. An Englishman by
the name of Rupert Charlesworth who
was boarding with Dorsey W. Viers, sud
denly and strangely disappeared. He was
traced to Viers' house the night of the 23d
of July, and a constable who went on the
morning of the 24th, before daylight, to ar
rest him, found he was gone, and no trace
of him could be found. On his arrival he
' found Mrs. Viers moping up the floor.—
Viers told contradictory stories about his
leaving—once saying he jumped out of
the window and run, and that he tried to
catch him, but could not. At another time
that he went off when Viers was asleep,"
and he knew nothing about it. Some one I
heard a rifle in the direction of the house ,
of Viers that night—arid some one saw
blood, the next morning on some bars that
led from Viers' house to the woods.
Years rolled on,and the excitement grqw
stronger with age, till the Bth of January
1831, complaint was made before George
Y. Wallace Justice of .he Piece, that Viers I
had murdered Charlesworth. Viers was
arrested and a trial of eight days followed.
Not only the circumstances I have men
tioned proven, but also, by a hired girl of
Viers, that a bed blanket used by Charles
' worth, was missing from the house of
Viers on the day. of Charlesworth'a disap
pearance, and that it was aftetwards found
hid under a haystack, with large black
spots on it resembling clotted blood. _
It was also proven that Charlesworth
had a large amount of money and that
Viers was, previously to this, poor, but
immediately afterwards, flush of money—
and to complete the chain of proof—a
skeleton had been found hid under a log
in the woods, in the direction of the path
from Viers' house to the bars.
Matters stood in this shape, when two
men unexpectedly appeared from Sandus.

alive though passing under an assumed
name, after the time of the supposed mur

sentiment as to his guilt. It was gener

Viers commenced a search for the miss

have done honor to a blood hound. Ho
visited all parts of the Union, and after a
search of years he went into a tavern in .
Detroit and in presence of a large compa

knew a man by the name of Charlesworth.
, All replied no, When about to start a
man stepped upio him and taking him, to
one side enquired if his name was Viers,
from Northfield. Viers said it was. The
stranger said, I am Rupert Charlesworth,;
but I pass hero under an assumed name. '.A.usimits.—A letter from Vienna, dated

gaxims for Farmers.
Do not sow your grain or cultivate your
crop in any particular manner pecause
your father did so. He may have follow
ed in , the footsteps of your grandfather,
and agriculture was not so well under
stood then, as now. ,"Prove all these
things and hold fast to that which, is
good.' , ' If not, reject it, and try isomo
other plan. Nothing of importance was
yet gained without some risk. • Experi
ment is the mother of science. • ..;
One acro well cultivated•will prodttce
more than two only scratched at, and'with
far less trouble. What is worth doing at
all, is worth doing well. .
Never sow your grain until the ground
is well prepared, just because;your.neigh
bor htutcommenced_sowing his. Prepare
your land well, and the battle is half won.
Do not_have a superabundance of farm
ing implements; but let what you have be
6nthe lest kind, and keep them well sharp
ed. A sharp knife will cut twice as
fast as a dull one and do much better.
•When you build, have, an eye to. the
convenience, but do not altogether lose
sight of beauty. Nothing improves the
look of the farm more than buildings neat
ly arranged and well put up, and the cost
is very little more. •
When you make a fence, make a good
ono. It may cost more at first, but will
cost less in the end. •
Never plough in wet weather if you can
avoid it. Be•idesdoing injury to the crop,
it impoverishes the soil. It will not rain
always,--Ezchange Paper.
Plain Facts for Plain Fanners
Farmers are often complaining of the
burthen of high taxes that weigh their'
down. But it is a notorious fact that nine
ty-nine hundredths of our farmers lose and
waste more valuable manures on their
premises, annually, than would pay
their taxes for five years.
We think we hear some of our farmers
say that we are mistaken, because' they
keep their straw and their cattle in a yard
and make two or three hundred loads of
manure in a year. True, but they loin
forty per cent of this very manure by im
proper management of it. Generally , it
lips on a steep side hill below their bank
barns, with all the water from the barn
running through it for nine months, wash.
ing out twenty per, cent, of its value, and
carrying it into the nearest run or creek;
and then they haul it into the fields in .An.
gust, and spread it out for two or three
weeks, on the top of the ground, allowing
the sun to evaporate twenty per cent mere
of its valuable properties, before it was
plowed under ground, where it ought •to
have been before it was ever permitted to
become dry. Here is the forty per cent.
gone at two operations. Now three hun
dred loads of manure aro worth five bun
! dred dollars to the field. Forty per cent.
off of this is two hundred dollars loss.

Cows have Power to hold up their Milk.
A gentleman at Huntingdon, L. 1., Writes
as follows:
"It is.known to many fardiers that when
young cows first come in when the calves
are taken away, they will hold up their
milk for a short time, and some will almost
dry themselves before - they will give it
down. A few years ago I bought a young
cow which proved to .be very wild, and
when I took away her first calf she .would
not give her milk. I had heard it remark.
' ed that putting a weight on the cow's back
would make her give her milk d0Wni, ,, ,1
accordingly drove her into the
l a bushel of grain and put it .ot, her , back ;
but not being heavy enough, I took it off
j and put my elbow in the centre of her back;
and bore on Until she hollowed in her back:
j While she kept in this position she Winer
1 power to hold up her milk, for .ir came
j down freely. After doing this a few times,
land afterwards putting my , hend oft OP.
j back of the .cow, it would give Way, .and
' she would immediately give down her,
