In this way they acquire habits of mdus-,

Many persons who are poor let their
children grow up to fourteen or sixteen
years of age, or till they can support
them no longer before they put them to
labor. Such children, not having any i
dca whas labor is-, and having acquired
habits of idleness, go forth to impose up
on their employers with laziness. There
is a renulciveness in all labor set before
them, and to get it done, no matter how,
i3 their only aim. They are ambitious
at play, but dull at work. The conse-
quence is, they do not stick to one thing,
but a short time; they rove about thn
world, get into mischief, and finally find
their way to the prison or aims-house.

and I started off to see how I could best

bcen strollinS round for sorae time ook-
in at the Tower, and other places of note
and finally walked into one of the parks,
to see what I could of the London fashions.
I was leaning against a tree, watching a
party which attracted my attention, when
I was suddenly accosted by a female, ap-
Shc looked at me a moment, and said
"You are a sailor, I suppose ?"
"How long have you been in London!"
"I arrived yesterday."

feelings. I immediately dressed myself,
wifh a presence of mind which ! have
i i j tt.
never been able to account for. I then
tried 'to open the door, which, to my hor
ror, I found was locked. Glancing around
the room, my eye fell upon the irons in
the fire-place. I snatched one up, and,
with one stroke broke the lock and open
ed the door. Running down the stairs,
I found the front door fastened also.
Having nothing to break the lock with, I
darted into the first room I came to, and
jumped from the window into an alley on
the side of the house, and had merely
time to conceal myself, when I heard the
people round crying murder, and saw the
very woman that I came with, followed
by several of the police, enter the house,
thinking, I suppose, of course she would
find me. I left as soon as the crowd
gathered round, and passed unnoticed.
The next morning I was reading the
paper, and almost the first thing which
attracted my attention was a notice of a
bloody murder in street, with the
reward of fifty pounds for the apprehen
sion of the murderer. It went further,
and, in the description of the supposed per
son, described me better than I could have
done myself even to manner in which I
wore my beard. The first barber's shop
received that gratis and changing my
clothing, which was also minutely descri-

The "Old Guard" at Waterloo.

charge by the Old French Guard at Wa-'

led with amazement. A beaten enemy
was about to form a junction with the al
lies, while Grouchy, who had been sent to
keep him in check, was nowhere to be
seen. Alas what great plans a single in
efficient commander can overthrow.
In a moment Napoleon saw that he
could not sustain the attack of so many
fresh troops, if once allowed to form a !
junction with tho allied force, and he do-
termined to fita1rA K fnt on linlrl
cast, and endeavor to pierce the allied cen
ter with a grand charge of the Old Guard
and thus throw himself between the
two armies. For this purpose the Imper
ial Guard was called up and divided into
two immense columns, which were to meet
in the British center. Those under Reile
no sooner entered the fire thanit disappear
ed like mist. Thc other was placed under
Ney, "the bravest of the brave," and the
order to advance given. Napoleon ac
companied them part of the way down
the slope, and halting for a moment in a
hollow, addressed them a few words. He
told them the battle rested with them, and
that he relied on their valor, tried in so
many fields. "Vive l'Empereur!" an
swered him with a shout that was heard
above the thunder of artillery.
The whole continental struggle exhibits
no cubliraer spectacle than this lust effort
of Napoleon to save his sinking Empire.
The greatest militars energy and skill the
world possessed had been taxed to the ut
most during the day. Thrones were tot
tering on the turbulent field, and the
shadows of fugitive kings flitted through
the smoke of battle. Bonaparte's star
trembled in the zenith now blazing in its
ancient splendor, now suddenly paling,
before his anxious eye. The intense anx
iety with which he watched the advance
of that'column, and the terrible suspense
he suffered when the smoke of battle
wrapped it from sight, and tho utter de
spair of his great heart when the curtain
lifted over a fugitive army, and the de
spairing shreik rung out, "The Guard re
coils!" "The Guard recoils!" make us
for a' moment forget all the carnage, in
sympathy with his distress.
The Old Guard felt the pressure of the
immense responsibility, and resolved not
to prove unworthy to the great trust com
mitted to its care. Nothing could be more
inposingthan its movement to thc assault.
It had never recoiled before a human foe,
aid the allied forces beheld with awe its
film and steady advance to the final
clarge. For a moment the batteries stop
ped playing, and the firing ceased along
the British lines, as without the beatinn
o a drum, or a bugle note to cheer their
steady courage, they moved in deed si
lence over the field. Their tread was like
muffled thunder, while the dazzlino- hel
met3 of the cuirassiers flashed lon
streams of light behind the dark and ter
rible mass that swept in one strong wave
along. The stern Drouet was there amid
his guns, and on every brow was written
the unalterable resolution to qonquer or
die. The next moment the artillery 0
pened, and the head of that gallant col
umn seemed to sink in the earth. Hank

stopped nor faltered. Dissolving squad-
