:His own wish was to seek' refugetit the!

From Switzerland, Louis Philippe-re

Jutland to Copenhagen and tllsineur.—
's . From the last city,. peculiarly interesting-tit
.an Englishman by its association with one
. of the proudest monuments of the genius
----- -of - Slialtspeare; - hd - crossed -- the:Sound and
landed upon the Scandinavian, Peninsula.
,After visiting Gottenburg and a' part of
. SWeden, he entered Norway, and stopped
a sherrtime at Frederickshall, the scene of
She last occurrence in the . eventful liro of
Charles the Twelfth, one of the most lin: .
. pressive illustrations which 'History:-has left i
'of the vanity , of human glory.
, , Henee the king continued his-
° route, to
Christiana, where he remained some titne,
tranquil and unsuspected, enjoying the pri
mitive kindness of. Norwegian hospitality.
A'eurious incident happened oite:,,day to
disturb hig equanimity, and. which at first
. led him titi , fear he was discovered. It is
the habit of society in that city, at the pro
per season, after having breakflisted, to go
into the country, and there pass the residue
- of thetday: After one of these excursions,
when the family wheie the, stranger had.
been received was preparing to return to
town, he heard the son exclaim with -a loth: .
"' ''voice-- t " The carriage of the . Duke of Or;
.leans !" .- He was recognized Without doubt
,could it be ?' Preserving ' his . .
. ~self-possegiinn, however, and perceiving
that the ,yothigman did not regard him, he
AM anxious tolearn:the cause of this sin
gular annunciation. . ," Why," '-said lie,
`et - idling,- "did you call , the carriage.of - the
Duke of Orleans; and what relations;' :have
.you with.the Prince ?" " None, indeed,"
' '^ t anawered his-Norwegian friend; "but While

_ era,. heard-repeated from all quarters,
'the carriage of '.the. of Orleans!' I
have been' more than once stunned with
ihe,noise, and I just took it into my head
' to ma he the same exclamation." •
The, king continued his tour to- Dron
.thietn, and, thence to HaMersfeldt, the most
northerplomin - in, Europe: He even. con

was to convey to him a letter from his
