[From the London World of Fashion.]
• I generally spend every Saturday evening
with the Prince of Montfort,the only real French
house in Florence, and the only true Parisian
drawing room in all Italy.
One evening, after having chatted for con
siderable time on the private life of the Emper
or Napoleon, his habits, manners, and super
stitions, I asked the Prince if he believed in
the report generally circulated, of his fiyolite
sorcerer, the " Litle Red Man."
" I have often heard my brother speak of this
-singular apparition," said be, •• but have never
seen this strange personage myself; but they
say he was three times in communication with
the Emperor. the first time at Eamanhour in
Egypt; the second at the Tuilleries, when the
unfortunate campaign into Russia was decided
upon, and the third and the last time on the
night preceding the battle of Waterloo." " But
here," continued the Prince, smiling, "is a
lady who knows many wonderful things on
this subject, that have been recounted to her
by her old friend Zaionezek.
All eves were turned towards the Princess
Galitzin. The Princess, who was of Polish
birth, and consequently a country-woman of
the famous General whom the Prince had just
named, is one of the most elegant, amiable, and
intellectual women I have ever met with; in
her society hours flew like minutes, and morn

midnight, so inimitable were her coot
powers. Fain would I relate to you in her
own words and manner the following recital,
but that I find impossible; so my readers must
be content with my dull prose, in contradis
tinction to her glowing and poetic language,
which imparted an interest to her discourse,
which I cannot hope to impart.
Bonaparte landed in , Egypt on the night of
the 2d July, ails'. having taken Malta. with as
little difficulty as a small paltry town would
require, and passed, as if miraculously, through
the very centre of the English fleet. The next
morning the city of Alexant'ria was added to
his victories, and the new Cesar breakfasted

the aid-de-camp, and General Desaix.

Little Red Man.
Zaionezek asked ivbo was the Little Red
Man, but could gain no information on the mat

Little Red Man : when he comes, conduct him
to my presence•"
After an interval of about half an hour, a Turk
appeared, his height was scarce five feet, and
his beard and eyebrows were fiery red.
Several general officers joined the group. all
anxious to have a sight of this strange being,
who appeared to possess such influence over
the mind of Napoleon.
Their curiosity was now raised to the high
est pitch, and as they were well aware of Bona
parte's belief in fatalism, they commenced re
tailing the prophecies which had been made in
his infancy, and which told of such unexam
pled good fortune. Of these prophecies Na
poleon was wont to speak, as well as of the star
that presided over his destiny.
Thus the young officers, some of whom ar
rived at the age of twenty, and five and twenty
to the rank of Colonels and Generals of Bri
gade, under a General-in-chief of twenty-eight,
and who consequently had ambitious dreams
of future fortune, resolved amongst themselves
nut to let the Little Red Man pass without in
terrogating him, curious to learn if they were
to accompany in his luminous revolutions,
the brilliant planet of whom they were the satel
As they understood the little Red Man was
a sorcerer, they formed a large circle at the
door let he might escape them, a thing which
after the precaution taken by the best generals
of the age, could not easily occur unless he
could wing his flight to the skies, or bury him
self in the earth beneath, their feet.
"-At length the Little Red Man was seen, and
his appearance and costume fully justified the
name given to him. He did not seem at all
surprised to see the precautions taken to en
trap him, nor desirous of escaping their scruti
ny, but stopped willingly on the threshold of

used at the period, " you await me in order
that I may reveal to you the future destinies of
France, as well as our own. That of France
I have just told your General ; let three of you
advance. and I shall inform you of yours."
Croister, Desaix, and Zaionezek rushed for
ward ; the others remained in their places.
There is a precept of your religion," said
the sorcerer. which says the first should be
the last, permit me to reverse the precept and
say the last should be the first." And he ad
vaneed towards Croisier, who was. aide-de

his head. •• They call you brave," he said,
and it is true. Notwithstanding a day shall

will abandon you. and you will pay for that

Croisier stepped back, a smile of disdain was
upon his lips.
The Little Red Man advanced towards De

be asked, held out his hand for inspection.

" Believe, Zaionezek, as he believes," and

•• You shall see."
Here the Little Red Man made a sign to a
drummer to bring his instrument and rest it on
the ground before him—he then placed himself
on his knees beside it, drew from his belt an
inkstand. pen, and a sheet of parchment, upon
which he commenced Writing in an unknown
language, several words with red ink."
" There," said the prophet, rising and ex

" there is the talisman which I have promised

The group by whom they were surrounded
commenced laughing, and Zaionezek amongsi

" Then it will become powerless against the

" Believe," said the Little Red Man, " and

became blenched and quivered with excitement.
He kid, as if by a mechanical movement, his
fingers upon the handle of his sword, and as if
he were within hearing, he loudly and bitterly

And with a movement of uncontrolled rage
he closed the windows.

Scarcely had the door closed on Croisier,
when the loud and angry voice of Bonaparte
was heard. What passed in the interview is
unknown, but it was observed that the young
officer came out, with tears in his eyes and
••Well. my courage is doubted, my life shall
be the consequence."
During ten months at Rabris, at the Pyra
mids, and at Jaffa, Croisier did his utmost - to
keep his word. This brave young man, on all
occasions, threw himself like a madman into
the midst of dangers, but the dangers gave place
to him ; he courted death, but death would not
yield to his desires.
At last They arrived before St. Jean D'Acre.
'lime assaults had taken place. Croisier, who
accompanied the General in the trenches, ex
posed himself as the lowest soldier, and so ex
traordinary were his escapes, that it was said
he made a compact with the balls and bullets,
for the more desperate he appeared to be, the
more invulnerable he was.
Upon each oceasion Bonaparte quarrelled
with him upon his culpable temerity, and threa
tened to send him hack to France.

Thus Croisier, scarce twenty-four paces from
the walls, became a target for all the balls.
Bonaparte saw all, from the fatal day when
he had allowed his anger to fall on his valiant
aid-de-camp: he saw that he was heart•stricken,
and wished for death. His despair had more
than once profoundly touched the heart of Bo

COMMIT THY WAYS TO GOD.—Reflection

and that of all others, opens entirely a way that
was unknown to ourselves. The great and
blessed God has been our conductor, though
unseen, ana it may be unacknowledged.—
Ought we then to acknowledge him and com

Time is an: ocean, and each person's life a
voyage. Its tossings and heavings, its tem

SWEARING—We have'often spoken a word
against this sin. But can we say too much
when our ears are daily saluted with profane
t•aths and vulgar words ? Who can pass our
streets and not hear language that makes the
virtuous blush? Our youth and children are
growing tip exceedingly depraved. What
must be done? Grown up men must be on
their guard, and not set a pernicious example
before children. flow many you hear talking
aloud in the streets, who have not pride enough
and principle enough about them to keep from
words of profanity. Men must first reform,
before we can hope to do much with the youth.
We trust this caution may not be in vain.—

screams were loud. I thought reason had fled.
I became unconscious of everything, and on
returning to my senses, found I had been car
ried to my chamber. On recovering. I per.,
ceived that Corvisart was in attendanceoind
my poor daughter weeping over me. No! no!
I cannot describe the horror of my situation,
during that night. Even the interest which
she affected to take in my sufferings, seemed

The fatal day of separation at length arrived.
After the painful scene was over, Josephine in
silence and sorrow retired to her chamber.—
The usual hour of Napoleon's retiring came.—
He had just placed himself in bed, silent and
melancholy, while his favorite attendant wait
ing only to receive orders, when soddenly the
private door opened, and the Empress appear
ed, her hair to disorder, and her face swollen
with weeping. Advancing with a tottering
step, she stood as if irresolute about a pace from
the the bed, clasped her hands and burst into
an agony of tears." Delicacy—a feeling as if
she had no right to be there—seemed at first to
have arrested her progress; but forgetting eve
rything in the fullness of her grief, she threw
herself on the bed, clasped her husband's neck,
and sobbed as if her heart was breaking. Na
poleon also wept while he endeavored to con
sole her, and they ,remained for some time
locked in each other's arms, silently mingling
their tears together. After an interview of
abuut an hour, Josephine parted forever from
the man whom she had so long and so tender
ly loved. On seeing the Empress retire, the
attendant entered to remove the lights, and
found the chamber as silent as death, and Na
poleon so sunk among the bed clothes as to be
invisible. Tho next morning at 11, Josephine
left the Tuilleries forever.
GOOD ADVICE TO YOONO WOMEN.--Ttait
not to uncertain riches, but prepare yourself
for every emergency in life. Learn to work;
and not be dependent on servants to make your
bread; sweep your floors, and darn your own
stockings. Above all, do not esteem too light
ly those honorable young men who sustain
themselves and their aged parents with the
work of their own hands, while you care and
receive into your company those lazy, idle. po
pinjays, who never lift a finger to help them
selves, as long as they can keep body and soul
together and get sufficient to live in fashion.
If you are wise you will look at this subject in
the light we do ; and when you are old enough
to become wives, you will prefer the honest
mechanic, with not a cent to commence life, to
the fashionable loafer, with a capital of ten
thousand dollars. When we bear /marked.
Such a young lady. has married a fortune,"
,tremble for her future prosperity.
Riches left to children often turn out a curse
instead of a blessing. Young women remem
ber this, and instead of sounding the purses of
your lovers and examining .the cut of their
coats, look into their habits and hearts. Mark
if they have trades, and can depend upon them
selves—see that They have minds which will
lead them to look above a butterfly existence..
Talk not of the beautiful white skin and the
soft delicate hand, the splendid form, and the
tine appearance of the young gentleman. Let
not these foolish considerations engross your.
It pays well.

" Misther ! misther ! what have you done?"
said a little shaver, with protruding eyes to a

street. •• Done ?" said the fellow, what t ry , .
