[TrinslatSd from the French for ihe Albany Atlas
The djwipatem of every quality, careless epi*
cures add prodigala, who had so ardently desired
the reestablishment df imprisonment for debt and
who wetcotjeJ with joyous acclatnations this re-
turn to tbeir ancient traditions, when at length ibe
decree Which abolished imprisonment forydebt was
repealed,—all these diseonnter* on the (inure who.
after a abstinence, relied upon seeing days of
plenty revive, as;before, are singularly disappoint
ed in thdir hopes.
We have already said that as soon ns imprison
menl for;debt was re eslabbsbcd. bills of exchange
signed by willing hands, were scattered around
with a pfolUMOii of good augury, and that brokers
resumed bustnes m its former course, li was an
erroneous report ’ Lendlers did not come forward
—oao ojgbt call them, but they turned a deaf ear.
lu spite Of Ihe guaranties and sureties which legis
legislation again oflered them, brokers remained
inflexible —they gave up their calling. ReW.ious
CoDtidence will not capitulate at any price, and
Credit it rigorously shut up under the triple lock
of their'Strong box. which is no longer opeu
Yielding lo the counsels of prudence, they profit
by the lessou of the pant which renders them . ir
cumspect and puls them on tiu-ir guard against
possible;accidents. So that ihe re eMabhuimenl of

B ■ '■*, u young man oi laslnoti seeing Ins tuiuli
tors preparing tor hostilities, and not l.eiog able to
contract new debts, took the resolution of addres;
ing his Uncle the Baron of B, whose sole heir
be it, and who possesses a very large fortune He
wrote to him a painful nsknowledgemenl of his p.*-
sition. followed by a humble request. The confe*-
sitm whs boldly received and the request formally
refused. Tins uncle is an old genliemau made up
of prejudice? Wuhrut being avaricious, he did
not believr himself constrained to make any ad-
vance,'and had detcriuiined to give nothing during
Ins l-fe. However, the nephew was not discoor
aged, the liberalities of his uncle were hence
forte his only resources, and it was therefore
absolutely necessary to ob am tlcro !>y return
ing lo jhe charge, not boldly, but by au indirect m
One of the prejudices of the Baron, the most pow
erful of all with biro. Was the aristocratic prejudice-
The revolution had nob affected it. He was attach
ed lo Ins rank, lanatS'nl concerning hi* title . be
beard not raillery cm the subject of ibe respect that
one owe* to tne arms lind to ihe pedigree ol his
illustrious fami'V
U was on this weak hide lhal ihe young Vicomte
resolved lo attack this rebellious uncle, who refused
to pay h:» d-bi*.
“UTiai means this if you p'ease 1 ” the furious
Bar n said one day; to hi* nephew showing
him a visiting card which be hud crushed in hie
-T&iiH" repbed the foung man coldlv “that is
my card." 1
“Your card' And hbw oomes it, l pray yr-u that
your title anil the particular rank inseparable from
your name are not found hore Si nee when hove
you called yourself merely M. Alfred B nnd
no ionger the Vicomte B— r

At these words the Baron again burst into a
transport, and the vuing man cut short the diteus
won by a hastj' retreat Thu was sufficient
tor a first :r al, the second was to be decisive The.
ancle and oeptew made part of a circle wnere

I will find myself forced, in order lo e»cupu from
Oty pursuers, to throw myself into socialism, wlm-h
ip the natural asylum of men destitute of resource*
or reduced to insufficient raeno.s."
The Baron, alter some resistance, yielded to this
reasoning He fell that the mjentice would be
complete, aud in order not to lose the fruit of
seventy thousand frouca given to creditor*, it was
necessary to add to it the pension claimed, m-d he
engaged for th" payment ot fifteen thousand tranca
itoffil* awawaff fer I’m
man to LimaelH From that ume, the nophew re
sumed his title of Vi com to with opinions suitable
to that quality.
The procedure now ts become quite tbe mode
among the fashionable youths in quest of bank
note*. Many young men combat the parsimony
of their parents, by threaleoiog '.o ca«t themselves
into socialism, and this comedv is nearly always
crowned by the success of the denounnent.
