-The year 1769 deservelr to be remem
bered in the history of the world. No
fewer than twenty-six eminent mon were
born in that year ; among whom were
Humboldt; envier, Sir Thomas Lawrence,
and Sir Walter Scott. But in addition
to them there were five destined during
tl lies to exercise a remarkable in
fluence upon one another. To begin
with the least eminent 'name on the list,
Lord Castlereagh, afterwards Marquis
of Londonderry, was born in July, 1769 ;
Marshal Noy and Marshal Soult in the
course of the same year ; the groat Duke
of Wellington in May, and Napoleon
Bonaparte in August. Five months
earlier Corsica had _become subject to
France, and incorporated with the French
kingdom, after a long struggle for inde
pendence,, first under the worthlenii-JCing
Theodore, (who lies buried inthe church
yard of St. Anne's Soho,) and afterwards
under General Paoli, who_ .also found a
resting place in England, Among Gen
eral Paoli's adherenta in Ajaccio, was
one—Carlo Bounaparto, an attorney in
moderate practiCe, the descendant of an
ancient but not remarkable Italian fam
ily whichliad come from Genoa during
the domination of that city in the island.
This' Carlo was educated in Italy, and
had beeii married some time to Lmtitia
als'o the deaendant of an
Italian family. They had one elder son,
Joseph, born in 1768 ; and called their
second by the name of a collateral an
cestor of some celohrity in ancient 'ltaly
—Napoleon des ::Ursius. It was not a
common Christian name, but bore in it a
certain dignity of sound, admirably fit
ting It, for the part it was to play on the
Pagei . ofhistory. The BounaparLos—or,
as theylatterly preferred to, spell the
name Bonapartes—were sometimes said
to to of Greek origin, and- their app'ella•
Lion Was called a translation of the not
uncommon Greek surname, Kalomeras,
or Kalomeros. Napoleon was not un
willing to have this legend believed, and
it was openly put forward by his agents
during certain disturbances wader' the
Turkish rule in the Moroa. 'Nor was
this the only attempt made- to assort an
ancient and honorable descent for the
family. The following remarkable story
was invented or found : The old legends
of the Man in the Iron Mask wore raked
up ; Lid jailor was given the name of
Bonpart ; his daughter was made to fall
in love witli t tla Prisoner, ' to marry him,'
rind to bear aeon"; this son Was sent to
Italy to hveduoat,e4 ; was, called after
the name of his grandfather, Boupart—,
Italianfied" into Bonaparte'; and finally
timMatiWith the Iron Mask was assumed
to be the elder twin brother Of Louis the
This story. is durious'and astounding
enough inall conscience, but is scarcely

'Nepoleoit's + first/ wife ,was Josephine,
widow of the Viseompt Alexandre Sean
harnois, who had fallen during the, Reign
of:Terror. Her ; moral ;character was
none of the best,,though .she seems to
have behaved with uncorenaen.prndence
during the trying niceties which succeeded
her husband's , death, , and by attaching
to her,''successively, Remus and When,
she was enabled tp,exerolso a not inct3n
siderable. influence on the . destiny , of.
Napoleon.: She married him.in March,
1706. She had already by her first mar
riage, children-Eugene, Writ in 1781;'
and Hortense, Who, in 1802, married'
Lodis .:Bonianniite,' liar step father's
younger brother. Jorophino, an Is well '
known,. had no, children 'bi Na,p' oloon:.
Who was, howeVe'r; warmly athichod tn
both' Eugene "titid' Tl . Oriensd.' The hOY
appears to hive beee 'worthy' r abid Step
father's opirden, and afterwards ''as a
general, and later, as Viceroy of Rely;
distinguished himself by both courage
and moderation. Ho married a dangh.
tor of the King of Bavaria, and thus
, founded — a - family - Whiclrhauteeti — re=
ceived into the inmost circle Of the older
royal and imperial caste of Europe. One
of hiasons 'was King Consort of Por
tngal,but died early ; the - other married
the beautiful Archduchees Olga of Rus
sia, and died in 1852 ; and of his daugh
ters, one, Josephine, became Queen of
Sweden, another became Empress of
Brazil, and tho'Hiird Princess of Hohen
zollern Henchingen. '
As to Queen Hortense, it is hardly
ponsible to draw her character. She was
witty, beautiful, and gay, and seems to
have been, in her latter' years, a good
mother. But thus ends the little that
and extravagant, And- notoriously . un
faithful to her husband. Some of her
biographers have. gone' no far ati.to say
that the present Emperor, Napoleon the
Third, is not really the son of Louis,
but of 'a . certain Count Flabault, with
whom she was very intimate, and' by
whom she had 'already had a son, the
late Duke de Morny. The singular re
semblance observable between the Count
and Louis Napoleon strengthens the
story.---Hortense-died,in-18a7 r -having...
resided for some years in Sivitzerlaud
with her younger son. She was accom
plished In music, and wrote the air now
so welLknown, "Partant pour la Eyrie."
Her husband survived her until 1846,
but they de not appear to have met from
the date of Napoleon's downfall. He'
died at Leghorn, and was buried beside
his father and hie elder son at St. Lou,
in PranCe. Like most of the brothers'
he was highly accomplished, and wrote
- several •works of fiction, including an
opera and tragedy. .
Napoleon, by his second marriage,
left, as is well known, a, son, the King of
Rome, who, after his father's abdication,
and the futile attempt to have him ac
knowledged, as Napoleon the Second, ac
companied his mother to Vienna to the
court of his grandfather, the Emperor'
of 'Austria. He „entered no' military
service of the EMpire, 'and became
colonel .of a battalion of infantry. His
health failed early—it was said by reason
of the assiduity with which he pursued
his military studies ; • but . the truth seems
to bo that he was encouraged, by his
,grandfather's - eennivhnoe, in every- spe
cies of youthful excess, and that the
decline of which, Mlee a long illness he
died at Scholibrunn, was the result
desired and attained by that astute policy.
His mother,. Marie •Louisin, after her
husband's death, became; by?the treaty
of Vienna, Duchess of .Parma and Elomo '
Mitior states, . aid, retaining the title of
Empress, lived in comparative retirement
until her death in 1847. She had mar
ried again a man of inferior rank, who
is said to,have kept her strictly under
his authority, *ill a view „especially of
saving a handsome ;fortune for himself
before her death, i . „ • , ,

"It don't make tiny difference, sir.

Never mind the details. It ended in a
fight. The Patent Office won. But I
found out something to my • advantage.
I was told that the Treasury Department
was the proper place for mato go to. 'I
went there. 'I waited two hours and a

'First Lord of the Treasury.. said :

"That is sufficient, sir. I.have , heard
of you. Go to the First Auditor-of the
Treasury," . • -
I did so. • Ho sent' me to the Second
Auditor. •The Second Auditor sent me
to the Third, and the Third sent me to
the First Comptroller of the Cora Beef
Division. This: began to looklike
business.. He examined his hooks and
all loose papers, but found no minute of
the beef contract. I went to the Second
Comptroller of the Corn Beef Diviaion.
He examined his books and his loose.
papers, but with. no success. I was
encouraged. During that week I got as
far the • Sixth coniptroller in that
division; the next week I got through
the Claims Department ; the third week
I began and completed the Mislaid Con
tracts Department, and got a foothold In
the- Dead Reckoning Department. I
finished that in three days. There was
enly one place left for it now. I laid
siege to the Commissioner of Odds and
Ends. To his clerk, rather—ho was not
there himself. There were sixteen
beautiful young ladies in the room,
awritinguirchonlacamL , thensrwa
well fathred young clerks showing them
how. The young women smiled 'up over
their 31;orilders, and the clerks smiled
back at thorn, and allwent merry as a
- marriage bell. TwO or three clerks that
were reading the .newspapers looked at
_rue rather hard, but went on reading,
and nobody said anything. However, I
had been used to this kind of 'alacrity
from Fourth Assistant Junior Clerks all
through my eventful career, from the
Corn Beef Bureau clear till I passed out
of the last one in the Dead Reckoning
Division. I had got so accomplished by
this time, that,Lcould stand on one_ foot
from the moment I entered an office till a
.clerk spoke to me,"'vrithout changing
more than two, or may be three limes.
So I Stood there till I had changed
four different timerr. Then I said to one

HOW TO MAKE MONEY.
Enter-into-a -business -of-which- you
have a perfect knowledge. In your own
right, or by the aid of friends on long
time, have a cash capital sufficient to do
at least a cash business. Never venture
on a credit business •at the commence
ment. Buy all your goods or materials
for cash; you can thus take advantage
of the market and . pick and choose whore
and when-you will. Bo careful not to
overstock yourself. Hit) and fall with
the market'-on short stocks.' Always
stick to thosh wheel you prove to be
strictly honest in their transactions, and
shun all others, even at a temporary dis
advantage. Never take advantage of a
customer's ignorance, nor equivoir - 4!
nor misrepresent.. Have but ono price
and a small profit, and you will find all
the most profitable customers—the cash
ones—or they will find you. .
