One morning, in the month:of June 1806,
the Empress Josephine's jeweler was usher
ed into a little apitrtment of the Tuilleries in
which Napoleon was seated at breakfast.

not a lapidary myself; and therefore not a
competent judge of such measures. As

care that you show it to no oho. You under
'Yes, site. 13u1 I wi,lt your majesty could
allow me a little more time, that I may be
enabled to-select 1134 tones in the most satis
factory manner. Choice diamonds are very
scarce,at present. . • . and they
have risen greatly in price.'
At thes e words the Emperor turned sharp
ly to the jeweler, and said,
'What do you mean? Since the campaigr.
of Germany the jewel market has been
overstocked. Parbleu! 1 know it for a fact
that our French jewelers have been purclia- .
sing. lamely front the pettLptinces of the
Germanic Confederation, who the King of
Prussia and the Emperor of Russia have
ruined by stirring them up against, inC. Go
to Banta, or Melierioi they can let you have
as many diamonds as you want.'
'Sue, I have always made it a rule never
.avail myself of the assisiance of other
ttadesmen, when I have the honotof work
ing fOr your
august family.
1 have thismoment my possession a set
of diamonds which I purchased of the King
of Prussia, who has commissioned me'—
. . But with regard to the necklace,
do the best you possibly can, and show the
people beyond the Rhine that we can surpass
them in jewelry as well as in all other
things.' "
On a sign from Napoleon, Funnier made
his last bow Find .withdrew. A week after
this interview the Emperor received a neck
lace. It was surpassingly beautiful„ The
jewels, the pattern, Ilie mounting, even the
case it was enclosed in—all were unique.
Napoleon had it valued; it was estimated to
be wroth eight hundred thousand francs,
precisely filet price which Fancier demanded
for it. The Emperor was perfectly satisfied,
. About this time, (June 18U8) Prince Louis
Bonapart, one of Napoleon's younger broth-,
ors, was rained to the lank of soiereiglity
and proclaimed King'of Holland.
On the day when Napoleon Wast4 , tieceive
the crown of that realm from the Minds of
the Dutch envoys, and to place it on his bro
ther's head, all the Court, assembled at St.'
Cloud. Louis and Horsens earrived that mor
ning from Sr Len. The ceremony, which
was attended with great pomp, took place In
the Salle du Trone. The envoys of the
defunct BaVarian republic were magnificent
ly entertained, and it was announced that
the new King and Queen would set out for
their dominions on the following day. In
the evening Napoleon sent io inform Her
tense that he desired io speak with her in his
Cabinet. She immediately attended the
summons, and when the page threw open
the folding doors to` announce her, the title
"Her Majesty the Queen of Holland," greet
ed her for the first time.

'Hortense,' said the„Emperor, 'you have

However frcm my knowledge of the Dutch

The cannon'6l'W;ntirloo had ceased to
roar,an,4-Napoleon was obliged to quit the
Elysees, and to take refuge in the Malmai
son, the last abode of the Empress Jose

the salon seated before h table on which lay
scattered the notes from which his send

entered. It was Hortense.
'Sire,' said she in a voice trembling with
emotion, 'duos your Majesty remember the
present you made , me at St. Cloud, about

Napoleori gazed at the daughter of Jose
phine with a mingled expression of grief and
affection, then taking her hand, said; 'well

'Sire, when I was Queer, you gave me

'No Hortense,' said he, averting his head
and gently repelling the hand which was

'Take it ire, I implore you. There is no
time to be lost. They aro coming! •
With these words she threw
the jewel case into his hand. A few hone
afterwards the necklace was stitched into - a

'But the greatest — difffetilfy pt? remained to
be accomplished—that ofconveying the treas

before this could be effected.
It occurred to the Emperor Napoleon that ho
had, for some time, been the object - of more
vigilant watchfulness than before. Ho could
not stir Irom Longwood without observing an
English 61E001. 0 -Who kept his eye *upon him,
following him like a shadow. Ono day Napo
leon remarked that the officer was watching
him more closely than usual ; and turning a
round,ho exclaimed angrily, "what is the mean
ing of this ? It is very hard that I cannot take
a breath of air without having a• spy on my
footsteps !' Then cutting short Ids walk he
hurried back in the direction of Longwood.—
The Englishman turned back also ,and coming
close up to Napoleon—'Sire; said he in a tone
of profound respect.
'Begone ! sir,' said Napoleon sharply. 'There
can be no communication between me and
your employers. Begone, I say !'
'Sire,' reamed the officer with an uir of per
fect composure, 'your Majesty is under a mis
take." Ho then hurriedly uttered the words
-'Count Las Cases—l hove something - of val.

'Ah l' exclaimed Napoleon, "tell me what you
have to say.'
.1 beg your Majesty will continue your walk
without seeming to notice me. I have a pack
et which. I have carried about for two years,
seeking an opportunity to Will your
Majesty contrive to let me throw it into your
hat?' . / •
Napoleon uncovering his head, passed his
hand across his foiehead, which was an habit
ual action with him when trying to recollect
anything. By a movement as quick as tho't
the necklace was thrown into the hat.
`Now,' said the officer, 'I trust your majesty
will forgive my importunity, I have fulfilled
my mission, and you will see no more of me.—
May God bless and preserve your majesty !'

About the end of April 1821. a fow days be
fore his death,Rapoleon desired Gen. Month°.
lon to come to his' bedside. 'llly friend,' said
lie, 'I have under my pillow a necklace of groat
value belonging to Hortense. I hatipod rea

theti possessed an article of so much value.—.
When I am gone, take it into your care, and
when you return to France,. (should—you—ever
be so fortunate as to return there,) give it to
Hortense. Should sorrow have hurried her to
an early grave, give it to her children—my

The malady continued to make rapid pier ,

that Napoleon had but a few hours to live, ho
took hie post, like a faithful sentinel, by the
bedside of tbe‘invalid. At length Dr. Anto

treasure confided to his cure.
After many adventurous journeys in Ameri

returned to his native France. Having per
formed what ho thought to be his first act of
duty, that of embracing his aged mother, he
set out fur Aremburg, to restore to the 9:-
Queen oritOrand a necklace, now doubly con
secrated as a memorial of happiness and mis
fortune. 'For a lons time she proserved it with
sacred veneration ; but in a moment of severe,
pecuniary distress she found 'herself compelled
to part with it. The King of Bavaria offered
to purchase it, by settling on the ex-Queen an

Grand Vegetable Banquet to the Po
tato on his late Recovery.
That highly respected vegetable, the Po
tato,ibaiggs hoped, thoroughly re-es
tablished in health, it was determined by a
few leading members of the Vegetable King
dom to offer a banquet to the, worthy and
convalescent root on its recovery. The ar
rangements for the dinner were on a scale
of great liberality ) and the guests included
all the principal vegetables. The invitation
had been carried out, by efficient corps of
Scruiet Runners, nod the Onion occupied the
chair. He was supported on the right by
the head of the Asparagus family, while Sal
ad occupied a bowl at the other end of 'the
table, and was dressed in his usual manner.
The Potato, though just out of his bed, was
looking remarkably well, and wore his jack
et, there being nothing to mark his recent
illness, except, perhaps, a little apparent
blackness round one of his eyes. 'Ajtee the
cloth had been removed,'
The Onion got up to propose as a toast,
the Potato, their much respected guest. (Im
mense cheering.) He, the Onion, had known
the Potato, from infancy; and though they
had not always been associated in life, they
had . hequently metal the same table. They
had sometimes braved together the same
broils, and' had found themselves often to.

Irish stew) as had !nought them, for the
time being, into an alliance of the very clos

see the Potato once more restored to his
place in society ; for he, the Onion, could
say without flattery, that society had endeay.
oted to supply the place of the Potato in
vain. (Hear, hear) They had heard of
Rice having been suggested to take the place
of his honorable friend, but theluggestion:
was really ridiculoris. Risum teneatis, ami
ei, was allthathe, the Onion, had to say to
that. (Loud laughter, in which all but the
Melon jontel . ). He, the Onion, would not
dentin them any longer, but would conclude
by rrimpsina health, long lite and prosperity
to the Potato.
fho toast was received with enthusiasm
by all but the Cucumber, whose coolness excite-much-disgust--amongst-his
brother vegetables. The Onion had, in tact,
affected many of those pr4ent to tears, and

- the Potato rose, but that wad only a
signal for ronewedenthusiasm, and it was
some minutes before silenoe was restored.—
At length the Potato proceeded nearly as
lollows :
"Friends and fellow-vegetables : It is with
difficulty I express the feeling with which I
have come here to day. Having suffered
for the last three or four years with a grevious
disease; which seemed to threaten me with
total dissolution; it is with intense satisfac

the vigor of health. (Cheers). I should be
indeed inser.sible to kindness, were I to for
get the anxious inquiries that have been
;nude as to the state of my health, by those
who have held me in estrn, and sometimes
in a steam. (A laugh in which all .bilt the
Melon joined). I cannot boast of a long line
of ancestors. I did not, like some of you,
come in wiih' the Conquerer, but I ca me in

assent from the Turnip Top). Though I
may be a foreigner, I may justly say, that I
have taken root in the soil, and though I
may not have the grape 001 e Cucumber,

done as much good as any living vegetable;
for, though almost always at the rich man's
table, I am seldom absent from the poor
man's humble. board. '(Tremendous ap
plause). But,'? continued the Potato, "let
memot go flowery, or mealymouthed, for
there is something objectionable in each ex
treme. ' I have undergone many vicissitudes
in the course of my existence. I have been
served up, aye, and served out in all sorts
of ways. I have been roasted by some; I
have been basted by others; and I have had
my jacket rudely torn off my back by many
who know not the treatment I deserved.—
But this meeting, my friends, repays me for
all. Excuse me it my eyes are watery.—

which lasted-for a considerable time. •

GENCE.—What force and meaning is there in
this injunction? Keep thy heart (rem being
stained by sin, corrupted by passion, keep it
trona being shrunk or shriveled up by selfish
ness, keep it from - growing cord and hard,
and narrow; keep it fresh and wise and
loving, it may reflect the truth,. ever as the
peaceful summer ' s lake mirrors ttiv_tirene
heavens in its unruffled bosom. Let us then,
keep our - hearts thua, and keep it with all
diligence, tor, as it is the noblest, so also is
it the most delicate awl sensitive part of our •
nature. For it can be the most convinced
witness to the truth; by it can be proven the
Divine mission of Christ; by it can be re
vealed the character of God; it can authen
ticate the Christian law of love. if the - heart
can do this, and more than this, then let us
keep it, that, taught•by Jesus, it may be the
oracle of God within.. And as we thus keep
it, let us liken reverently and obediently to
its voice. Despise not ihe teachings of the
affections; refuse not the instruction which
flows forth from generous feelings; reject
not the wisdom which is inspired by love.—
For who bath given this large and animating
unde'rstanding to the heart? who hath put
within its reach, entrusted to its care, some
of the sublimest truths, mortal man can
receive? who claims for its loving rever
ence,-its holy loyalty? even He whose
gobi.leises crowns our days with loving kind
ness, whose spitit is the life of our spirits,
whose love is the source of our affections;--
He who himself is love.—Cliristian Squirm..
A thieves' convention has been held in Lon
don for the purpose of adopting measures to
procure an honest livelihood. Two hundred
and seven avowed thieves attended. The
meeting was opened with prayersnd a hymn.
An address was. proposed to Lord Ashley,
asking if any hope was presented to their
obtaining an honest living in the British Col
onies. His Lordship expressed Lis willing.
nese to befriend them, as it was his duty to
do. He candidly told them that there was
little hope for them, unless they turned their
attention to the hack settlements of the New
World. Suggestive of levity as may be
these facts, there is something serious and
solemn in them. "We must steal or die,"
was the response of one of the thieves;
"prayer is very good, but it • will not fill an
empty stomach." Can anything be more
expressive of the depraved influences of the
social evils of English society).
