c,nossura frtit ALPS.
One of : . the most difficult of earthly'
achievements was the tranSportation. by,
Napoleon.of an army of 60,000 Jaen' with;
cavalry, artillery end all the munitions of
war, across the Alps. He wished to de-i
scend suddenly, as from the clouds, upon.
the immense force of Austrians gathered
in Italy for the invasion of France. • Two,
skillful engineers were first sent to ex-;
plore the, pass of the great St.' Bernard.!
They returned with an appalling account
of the,difficulties to be surmounted. "Is',
it possible," inquired Napoleon, "to cross.
the pass." "Perhaps. was the hesitating
reply ; "it may be within the limits of
possibility." "Forwald then," was the,'
On the eastern frontiers of France tl4ro!
surges up, the majestic range of, the Alps,
piercing the clouds to the regions of per
petual ice, and snow. Gloomy gorges and;
frightful defiles, through
tain torrents rush,.ard walled'.in by cliffs'
which even the chamois cannot climb.—,
The principal pass was that of the Great',
St. Bernard. It was a narrow mule path,;
as steep as it was possible for an an,imal
to ascend. The traveller, led by a guide,)
painfully and perilously ascended, the,
steep, now crossing a roaring torrent, and;
now threading a narrow shelf, on the face
of the rock, with a fathomless abyss upon;
the one side, where eagles soared over
the fir tops eneath his feet, and where a
perpendicular wall rose to a giddy height
in the clouds .over his bead.
A Salse ,gtep would ,precipitate him a
thousand feet into the gulf heneath..---.
Ardis:4les of lock, ico and snow, from
the inaccessible heights ever 'swept ,the
path. At God's voice they fell, iind from
their rush no .precautions could save the
traveller. Terrific storms swept those
titude, blinding and smothering all who
were caught in their fury. It required
.of almost inexpressible. toil for
the traveller to reach the summit of the
pass, eight thousand feet above the level
of the sea.
Here there was a small plain, cheerless
I beyond description, the abode of almost
eternal Winter-were scarcely a shrub ap
pears, and which is surroulided by menu
tains of snow of still !tiger elevation. In
this Valley of Desolation, as it is appro
priately called, the Convent of St Bernard
stands. It is the highest inhabited spot
in Europe, and has been tenanted fur
wore than a thousand years, by self-de
nying monks, who acceptably, doubtless,
worship their Maker by furnishing hos
pitality to the travellers passing through
these dreary regions. The descent to the
sunny fields of Italy is even more precip
itous and difficult than the ascent from
the plains of France. The whole extent
of what was called the pass, threading
torturous rat ines ,and climbing cliffs, was
-bout twenty miles. •
Such was the barrier which Napoleon,
lintanded to surmount, that he might fall
unexpectedly upon the rear of the Ans
i trians, who were bombarding Genoa, and
Ithundering at the gates o(Nice. Giv
ing Moreau all the disciplined troops of
France, • 150,000 in number, to repel the
advance of the Austrians upon the _Rhine,
Napoleon collected, with amazing celerity,
60,000 raw recruits for this most- ardu
ous of enterprises. To deceive ,his foes
he announced openly, that he intended
to send an army across the Great St.
Bernard. England and Austria laughed
the idea to scorn. It was deemed iw
possible that an army with ponderous ar
tillery, tons of- cannon balls, and till the
bulky munitions of war could be, trans
ported where a wheel had never rolled,
and where a mule could with difficulty
tread, and,where two mules oould hardly
The troops were secretly- collected in
the vicinity of Dijon, but so dispersed as
not to attract special attention, and yet in
such a manner that they could easily be
assembled at the entrance of the pass.—
Immense stores of provisions were noise
lessly accumulated. Large sums of spe
cie were forwarded to hire the services of
the mountaineers. Able mechanics were
employed to take apart the baggage wag
ons and gun Carriages, so that they might
be transported in fragments, on the backs
of mules across ther, mountains, and be
speedily put together on the other side.
Hospitals were provided with every com
fort for the sick and the wounded. Ev-.
cry man carried, besides his gun and am
munition, several days' rations. The
sinuous path was so narrow that much
of the way it could only be trodden single
Abnut the middle of May, 1800, the
whole army was put in motion: To-trans
port the. heavy cannon, pine logs were
split in the center, the parts hollowed out
and the guns sunk into the grooves. A
long string of mules, in single file, dragg
ed these ponderous engines up the steep
acclivities. Often a hundred, men were
harnassed to a gun. The peasants took
hold of this laborious work with great
zeal: 'Napoleon gave thetn two hundred
dollars for taking a gut over the pass.—
With songs and glee they tugged Ist - the
ropes. Gleaining' thrpugh the, mists of
these almost inaccessible heights,' there
was the flash of banhers ! and burnished
arms, resembling'phantom troops battling
in the air.
The soldier found tp his surprisle. and
gra,tification, ;that, Ppm the summit of
the mountain, his.loved cotninande& had

As the 'soldiers passed each one redeived;
without' conftiaton,:a loaf of bread, ti piece

Whenever in' any part•of the path, any
special difflenity was encountered, the
bugle sounded the ch6.ge, and the 'soul
stirring strains reverberating sublimely
among the cliffs animated the soldiers,
and they presSed on as if storming en
trenchments upon the field of battle.—
But Providence seemed' to smile lon the
enterprise, and though some hundreds,

troops, and was the last man to cross the
mountain., Gee solitary Swiss peasant

mule. The peas ant'was' hot aware of

of his love for a fair maid, in his t native
villiaffe, whom he longed to marry, but
coulenot, as ho had neither house br land
for , the support of a fauiily. Napoleon,
as be dismissed his guide, gave him an
amplb reward, 'and in addition entrusted
him with a loose paper containing a few
lines written in pencil; which be was to

' The heroic little Vaud, with an
hour's delay, advanced rapidly ;Along the
valley of the Aosta. 'Suddenly! their
Msrch was arrested by at fort which ef

• When he was writing this letter nearly
all the guns of Napoleon had gone by,.
and like the bursting of a pent up torrent
were rushing down the valley. Melds now

bringing; to light now sources of wealth,

that to eertain localities •the earth con
tains immense quantities of oil, which is
furnished so cheaply that it has come into
extenSive use din our own country, and is
already an important article of commerce.
In addition to all this, 'we find, by A re
