Ernst Moritz Arndt was born Dee., 26,
1769, at Shoritz, in Rugen.,, , Toward, the
end of the last, century he distinguished
:himself as a traveler, and by his vvorkesio
Sweden, Italy; France, Germany, Italy,
In 1806 he was appointed Professor Ex
traordinary of Philosophy at Graswald.
Ho was a vehement lover of liberty, and
though at first a favorer of Napoleon, be
came one of his bitterest opponents as
soon as he comprehended his designs of
conquest. His " Spirit of the Age" went
through several editions. The attention
it excited by the boldness of his attacks
on Bonaparte. compelled Arndt, to fly to
Stockholm, whence ho was unable to re
turn until 1813. .•
His writings, which flowed in rapid
succession from his indefatigable pen,
made a profound impression on popular
feeling. '1 hey served, It is intimated, more
than any cause, to keep alive the German
hatred of French domination that stimu
lated the war of liberation.
In 1813, Arndt was appointed Profess
or of History in the University of Bonn ;
but the yen , next year the inquiry into
" Demagogical Intrigues" was said to
have implicated him. He was - out of the
public employment till 1820, when he was
reinstated. his popular poems old War

the most martial and popular, were pub

On the 30th of July, 1192, the Marsel
laises arrived in Puns, whither they had
been invited by Barbaronx at the instance
of Madame Roland. " The secret motive
of their march," says M. DeLamartine,
" was to intimidate the National Guard
of Paris ; to revive the energy of the Fan
bourgs ; and to be in the advance guard
of that camp of 20,000 men, which the
Girondists had made the Assembly vote ;
to overrule the Feuillants, the Jacobins,
the King, and even the Assembly itself,
with an army of the Departments com
posed entirely of their own creatures."
The Marsaillaises entered Paris by the
Faubourg St. Antoine, and singing the
song which bears their name, proceeded
to me Champs Elysees, where a banquet
was prepared for them.
The origin of the words and music of
this famous song is thus described by M.
De Leamt.rtine:
" There was at that time a young offi
cer of artillery in the garrison at Stras
burg. His name was M. Rouget De
Lisle. He was born at Lonsla-Suulniea
in the Jura, a country of reveries and en
ergy, as mountainous regions always are.
Tate young man loved war as a soldier ;
the revolution as a thinker. By his ver
ses and his music, he lightened the tedi
ousness of the garrison. Generally sought
on account of his doable talent as a musi
cian and a poet, he became a familiar
visitor at the house of an Asiatic patriot,
Dietrich, Mayor of Strasburg. The wife
and daughters of Dietrich ebared his en
thusiasm for patriotism and revolution.=
They loved the young officer. They in
spired his heart, his poetry, and his mu
sic ; and trusting to the early lispings nf
his genius, they were the. first to execute
his scarcely expressed thoughts.
"It was in the hinter of 1792, famine
reigned at Strasbuix, the Dietrich Wilily
were poor, and their table was frugal, but
it was always hospiMble to Rouget. One

in the Wine, and , filled up the glasses of
their aged fat Wand the young officer
until the , liquor was exhausted, It was
midnight The night was cold. De Lisle
was in a dreamy state ; his heart was
touched head was heated. The cold
overpowered' him, and he tottered into
his lonely room slowly, seeking inspira
tion now in his patriotic soul, now in his
harpfschord ; sometimes composing the
air before the words, and sometimes the
words before the air, and so combining
them in his thoughts he:himself did not
-know whether the notes or the verses
came first, and that it wis impossible to
separate the poetry from the music, or the
sentiment from the exprmsion. He sang
and set down nothing.
• " Overpowered with the sublime inspi
ration', De Lisle went to deep on the har-
piiichord, and did not write until day.—
remembered the song of the previous 1
night- With a difficulty like theft with
which we recall the impressions of a
dream. 'He now sat' own the words and
music, and ran with them to Dietrich, 1
whom he found at work in the garden.—
The wife and daughter of the old patriot
had not yet risen. Dietrich awakened
them, and invited some friends who were
us passionately as fond of music as him
and were capable of executing De
Lisle's compesition. His eldest daughter 1
played the•acciimpaiiimenti while Rognet

and at the last all the madness of entlin-
Siam broke forth. Dietrich, his wife, his
daughte, and the young office, fell weep
ing in each other's arms. The hymn of
the country was found. It was destined,
alaS ! to be also the hymn of terror. A
few months afterward the unfortunate
~Dietrich went to the scaffold to the sound
of the 'very- notes which had their mien
on his own hearth. in the heart of his
friend, and in the voices of his children :
Come, children of your country, come,
New glary dawns upon the world ;
Our tyrants rushing to their doom,
Their bloody standard have unfurled ;
Already on our plains we hear
The murmurs of a savage horde ;
They threaten with the murderous sword
Then up and form your ranks, the hireling
foe withstand ;
March on—his craven blood must fertilize the
land. ,
Those banded serfs—what would they have,
By tyrant kin& together brought ?
Whom are those fetters to enslave
Which long ago their hands have wrought ?
You, Frenchmen, they would enchain ;
Doth not the thought your bosoms fire
The ancient bondage they desire
To force upon your necks again.
tikeu up, &c.
These marshaled foreign ers--.4diall they
Make laws to reach the Frenchman's hearth ?
Shall hireling troops who fight for pay
Strike down our warriors to the earth ? •
God I shall we bow beneath the weight
Of hands that slavish fetters wear ?
Shall ruthless despots once more dare
To be the masters of ourfate ?
Then up, &c.
Then tremble tyrants—traitors all—
Ye whom both friend and foe despise,
On you shall retribution gill,'
Your crimes shall gain a worthy prize•
Each man opposes might to might ;
And when our youthful heroes die,
Our. French can well their place supply
We're soldiers all with you to fight.
Then up, tte.
Yet, genemns warriors, still forbear
To deal on all your vengeful blows ;
The train of helpless victims spare,
Against their will they are our foes.
But, oh ! those despots stained with blood,
Those traitors leagued with base Bouille,
Who make their native land their prey—
D ea th t o thq savage tiger brood!
March on, &c.
And when our glorious sires are dead.
Their virtues we shall surely And
When on the selfsame path we tread,
And truck the fame they leave behind.
Less to survive them we desire
Than to partake their noble grave.
The proud ambition we shall have
To live for vengwnee or expire.
Then up, &c.
Come, love of country guide us now„
Endow our vengeful arras with might
And dearest liberty, do thou,
And thy defenders in the fight.
Unto our flogs let victory,
Called by thy stirring accents haste ;
And may thy dying foes at last \
Thy triumph and our glory see.

The Detective Department—Cinlotiui
'When Vidocq, the French ex-thief and
then thief,-catcher; gave to the world his
niemoirs, 'people doubted whether his
statements of, exploits were ,reliable.; A
self-asserting hero in two 4 . 'professious,". it
might, well be believed to, egotisui, vanity
and, professional pride colored,the )aistory
which be gave, of a career which,incladed
him among the friends as well as the, foes
of society. And yet to those familiar
with the past history of the Detectiye
,Department of Philadelphia, few of the
stories told by the French policeman
seem exaggerated. Tradition as well as
the personal collection of our own of
ficers give a long catalogue of crime de
tected, criminals captured and property
recovered by means as surprising as any
employment by the famed Vidocq. No
one of our detectives has ever put into
shape these incidents, and what is now
known comes to us through the gossip
incident to a friendly chat with ex-de
tective officers.
The stories thus gathered include not
only the successes, but also the failures of
the officers; not only victories, but also
ignominious defeats. - Some of these mis
takes were not only amusing, but at times
resulted in pecuniary loss to the unfortu
nate officer. Fur instance, a heavy rob
bery was committed some twenty years
ago in Baltimore, and our policemen were
notified of the fact. The Baltimore
propellors were, therefore, watched, at
at our wharf, until finally a man, not°.
rions in criminal annals as the robbei of
the Patent Office, appeared. He was seiz
ed, and his baggage examined. A fine
lot of burglars' tools were thus secure&
bnt none of the stolen property was dis
covered, and ••Tom" had to be released.
He at once brought suit against the of
ficer, and obtained a verdict for $260
damages! It is not always, however,
that well-known criminals improperly
arrested have the effrontery to go into a
civil court to obtain compensation for
wounded honor. •
Even innocent men and men entirely
unknown to the police force hesitate to
undertake such a task, and most of them
are content to be released and thus forever
bury from public gaze' the story of the
wrong. A case or two in point. About
fifteen years ago, the officers is this city
received information of a robbery in New
York, with the description of the suppos
ed thief, "a German, five feet, nine inches,
dent in the left cheek, and a trunk con
taining cut cloth ready for manufacture
into clothing." The officers captured at
the depot a German answering exactly',
this description, including the trunk with
the cut garments. And yet the detectives
bad captured the wrong man, the real
thief teing arrested in New
. York a few
days afterwards, his personal appearance
closely resembling the unfortunate victim
s• .1.- ohiludpinhistoffirpru. miAtnkr. The
German was too glad to secure a release
to trouble the officers with a suit fur dam
A still more unfortunate blunder was
once committed by a special officer, who
is now dead. In company with a well
ex-detective he visited West Chest
er in search of a thief whose personal ap
pearance included hair of the true blonde
order, cut in a peculiar style. On the
train home the officer became convinced
that he recognized in one of the passen
gers the object of his search._His fellow
officer, more experienced an. more dis
creet, was not so positive. and endeavored!
to dissuade his sanguine companion.
"Sam," however, was positive, and,.at
one of the way-stations for refreshments,
he managed to get near enough to the
passenger, and addressed him familiarly.
Upon their return ro the train the two
engaged in conversation, the officer in
quiring where his new made friend came
from, where he was going to and whether
lie had any baggage. The stranger, evi
dently annoyed at what he believe to be
the impertinence of his interviewer, gave
ambiguous answers, which tended to in
crease the suspicions of the officer. He
stated that lie had no baggage. and yet
when the.train reached Philadelphia the
officer saw his stranger friend call a car
riage and place upon it two very heavy
trunks. Here was confirmation, and ac
cordingly the officer entered the vehicle,
claimed its - occupant as his prisoner, and
brought him to the Central Station, where
it was at once discovered that the accused
was a respectable gentleman residing on
Arch street. Being a civil engineer, be
was returning from a professional tour,
and the weight of his trunks was caused
by the instruments in them used in his
occupation. Of course there was con
sternat ion in the office. At this moment
"Gentlemanly George" came to the relief
of the bewildered officer and explained to
the gentleman the nature of the business
upon which the detectives had been en
gaged, and recounted to him the suspic
ions borne of his own peculiar and un
satisfactory answers to questions in the
train. The gentleman admitted this, ex
plaining that, as he did not know his
interviewer, and believing him to have
some design upon him or his property, he
had been thus cautious in his replies. lie
good-naturedly forgave the mistake, and
left the office for his home.
On another occasion, two officers start
ed in search of a thief. One of the de
tectives asserting that lie knew his man
well, and - merely desired the other to
make the arrest when the party was found.-1
In Market street, near Twentieth, the man
was sighted and pointed out to the officer
who was to make the capture. This' of
ficer followed his man as far 'as 'Eighth
and Arch, and then addressing him, told
him he was his prisoner. The man, in
dignant, refused to go, and a struggle for
the mastery ensued between the two, un
til finally the detective was victorious,
although the encounter resulted M a torn
coat for the prisoner. Upon teaching the
Central Station, imagine the 'surprise of
the officer to be told by his fellow • officer
who had preceeded him to the station,
that ht had g made , a mistake in the i
dentity of the man! The accused proved
