TH E CLOTHING D E P A R T M E N T has also received its full share o f attention, and from the importance attached to this branch of my business, I am enabled to offer to gentlemen one o f the finest assortments o f Cloths, Cassi­ meres, S atinetts and Vestings ever brought in to the c o u n ty ; together w ith all the little N ic- N acs which constitute a gentlem an’s wardrobe.

The’Sabbath-belll—how sweetly breathes O’er hill and dale that hallowed sound, W hen S pring her first bright chaplet w reathes The cotter’s humble porch around ; And glistening meads o f venal green, The blossomed bough, the spiral corn, Stnile o’er the brook that flows between, As shadowing forth a fairer morn. The Sabbath b e ll!—’tis stillness all, Save where the lamb’s unconscious bleat, Or the lone wood-dove’s plaintive call, Are mingling with its cadence sw e et: Save where the lark on soaring wing At heaven’s gale pours her matin-song ; Oh! thus shall feathered warbler sine, N o r man the grateful strain prolong ? Tbe Sabbath b e ll!—how soothing flow Those greetings to the p easant's b re a s t! W ho knows not labor ne’er can know The blessed calm thal sweetens r e s t! The day-spring o f his pilgrimage, W h o , freed aw h ile f rom e a r t h l y c a r e , T u r n s m e e k ly to a h e a v e n ta u g h t p a g e , And reads his hope recorded there. The Sabbath b ell!—yes, not in vain That bidding on the gale is b o rn e ; G lad resp ite lrotn the ech o in g w a in , The sounding axe, the echoing horn : Far other thoughts those notes inspire, W here youih (orgets his frolic pace, And matd and matron, son and sire. Their church-way path together trace. The S abbath bell I—ere yet lhe peal In lessening m urmurs melt away, ’T is sweet with reverential step io steal Where rests around each kindred clay ! W here burietl love, aud severed Iriends, Parent and offspring, shrouded lie ! The tear drop falls—the prayer ascends— The living muse, and learn to d ie ! T h e S a b a t h b e l l ! — ’t i s sile n t now , The holy fane the thtong receives: The pastor lends his aged brow, And --lowly turns the sacred leaves. Oh I blest where blending ranks agree To tread the paths their fathers trod, T o bend a l ik e th e w illin g k n e e , One fold before one fostering god! The Sabbath b e ll!—oh! does not lime In that still voice all-»loqnent breathe! How many have listened to that chime, Who sleep those grassy mounds beneath ! How many o f those who listen now Shall wake its fate-recording knell, Blessed if one b rief hour bestow A warning in ihe Sabbath bell ! Religion—believed it the purest Patriotism to be loyal to their K in g ; and the thought o f sun­ dering the cord of a leudal tenure by w hich they were bound to the mother couniry, w as like sev­ ering the ties w hich bind children to their home. And yet, he lived to see the name o l'a King, a hated word—crowns, coronets and titles trod­ den under foot. I would not have you think I am here lo-flay to eulogize my C ouniry, or stir your blood al thought el E n g land’s wrongs; but there are “ Monuments o f remembrance,” erect­ ed in the days ot our F ather. He lived to be an actor m the greal struggle that gave birth to a Republic, in which the title to power, was in no blood—in no lamily— bui in the might o f a free people’s choice. That Ireedom established, he lived through a period o f peace, in which arts, civilization and religion began to flourish under the auspices o f a new government. He lived to witness a new conflict Irom other caus­ es of difference, and peace again established ; and since then, a long course ot rapidly increas­ ing prosperity—and we might say rapidly de­ veloping resources indicative oi a glory yet un­ attained ; and he dies when K ings threaten, a n d ' the Republic trembles not. But long p ast as seems to us the R evolution, his childhood was identified with a warfare more remote. To speak o f W olf and M ont ­ calm —of H ow* and A bercrombie , is to arouse our memories into far gone histories. But the ear thal is now d e a f in our presence, had heard the same drums that beat at Lexington, even they thal had beat a t Louisburgb,Quebec, and Tt- condaroga. To us the scenes of the Old French W ar are storied scenes—and yet, they are em­ braced in “ the tale that is told ” in the lile just closed. That wonderful m an—the scourge of Europe, and a n instrument of great good in shaking to their very centre old Despotisms, which had for ages been fastening chains on the mind and muscle o f kindred flesh and blood— and who, though a despot over despots, opened the door of progress to the age, and bid the World speed on, that m an, w hose existence on earth was of itself an E ra in the history o f the race, lived, rose, reigned and died—and all w itn- in but the segment o f a circle o f our F a th e t’s life. It is a strange thought that ihe hue o f m an­ hood, w as already on the cheek, th at is now pal­ lid with death, before Napoleon breathed the breath o f life. What was the condition, I need not say of this now smiling lake shore, where comfort and civilization reign, and by the sound of the church-going-bell, a happy people are this hour assembled to give the decent rites of Christiau sepulture io an old m an ,- but oi this state in 1753 ? All around us wa* the home, the unsettled, roving, wild-wood home o fthe Indi­ an. The waters o f the lake that now dash up­ on the beach, mingling their m urm u rs with the sound ot o u r funeral hymn, bore them, nor trade — nor commerce, save it w as the eagle’s feather, or the bloody trophy o f victory. The canoe was Us voyager—the Indian its navigator—and strange to think, the very spot on which we are now niet, may have w itnessed the stianger mys- teues o f forest worship. The Colony—for the w o rd S tate, ex isted b u t in books, an d scarcely in th e d r e a m s o f those w h o in la t e r y e a r s , th o u g h t, a n d fo u g h t, a n d p r a y e d it in to reality — w a s a little belt a r o u n d t h a t an c i e n t th o r o u g h ­ fa r e th e H u d s o n . Oswego, was a far off settlem ent; the road to it carved out of the very wilderness; and he who had gone thither and returned, was a trav­ eller, the siory o f whose adventures, had more ol strange interest than his who had crossed the Atlantic wave. Our great Metropolis—the encircling o f a h a lf m illion o f people, what was it then, but a seaport town, importing almost every thing from the w oild’s greater Metropolis. In flue, ihe whole C ontinent was in its cradle— and we may in truth say in the language ot the Arabian Foei, the Most High dictating, “ The future; and prayer, that onr life may be like that o f the infant—who T o o k t h e c u p o f life t o * i p » Few bitter tears to drain— T h e n p u t i t m e e k ] / fro m J>i> J ip, And went to sleep—again; __ litre the old man full o f days, “ bearing the promise ot the life lhat is to con.e.” H E N R IETTA , T h e E m p e r o r ’s L i t t l e F l o w e r G ir l.

H e le n a , when th e w e a th e r was fav o r - able, Napoleon always rode out either in his carriage o r on horseback; but a s soon a s he had become fan.iliar w ith the confined space al­ lotted to him there, he olten prefet red exploring lhe secluded roads. After having finished his daily task of dictation, (for cne o f his favorite occupations was the dictation of his memoirs) and spent hours in reading, he dressed about 3 o’clock, and then went out accompanied by Gen. Berirand, M o n sieurLas C ases, o r G eneral Gourgaud. His rides were all directed to a neighboring village which he look much pleasure in explor­ ing, and where he found himself more free observaiion. Though the roads were in some places almost impassable, his taste for ex­ ploring seemed to increase rather than diminish — even the pleasure of ranging this valley was to him a species o f liberty. The only thing to which he had unconquerable aversion, was meeting the English sentinels, who were con­ stantly stationed to watch hitn. In one o f these rides, he tound a sequestered spot in the val­ ley, which afterwards became to him a daily retreat for meditation. One day he discovered a neat cottage amongst the rocks o f the valley, and entered the garden attached to it, which was radiant w ith flowers or geraniums, w hich a young girl w as w atering. This young girl was a brunette, and as fresh as the flowers; she had large blue eyes o f tnosi pleasant expression, and Napoleon, always an admirer o f lhe fair sex, was much struck with her beauty. ‘l’ray, W hat is your name?’ he enquired. ‘Henrietta,’ she replied. ‘Y o u r surname, 1 mean.’ ‘Brow.’ ‘You seem very fond o f flowers.’ ‘They are all my fortune, sir.’ ‘How is that?’ ‘Every day I lake my geranium s to town where I obtain a few sous for my boquets.’ ‘And your father and mother, what do they do?’ ‘A la s ! I have neither,’ replied the youug She arrived a t Longwood, but a la s ! the re­ ality was the opposite- o f her hopes. She found every one there in consternation. This time, fearing he was dying, and wishing to see him once again, she desired io be admitted to his presence. She was told that he was too ill, and that it w as impossible. H e r supplications were a t first in vain ; but a t length h er tears entreaties prevailed, aud she was adm itted to his chamber. It was a t this moment that Napoleon/ strr- rounded by his.faithful friends, and lying On htS death-bed, h ad requested them to place the bnst of bis son before him. H e then bade affecting farewells to his friends, and the F rench people, whom h e had loved so well. His arms then contracted with convulsions, h is eyes became fixed, w hile he gasped,— ‘F ra n c e ! My son Then all was sitent. Napoleon h ad ceased to live. A t these words the flowers w hich the young girl h a d brought, dropped from her trembling hands ; she feel on h e r knees by the bed-side ; then m aking an effort seized and tried to press the h an d o f N apoleon to h e r lips—but imm edi­ ately h er head feU back, her mouth w as discot- oted, h er eyes fixed, and she snnk on the floor, buried in that sleep which knows no waking.— Henrietta w as d e a d ! g ir l, w ith m u c h em o tion.

An., to the Worm—my Mother! an i my Si ter!” As we pass into maturity, and on into ihe winter o f life, we can but respond lo the feelings of the inspired p o et: ‘-Our days a re but the days o f ait hireling,” who weary o f his labor, watches for the shades o f evening to cross over the plain, that be may steal away to his rest. Should the boundary line o f here and there an earthly pilgrim, be stretched to lour .“Core years aiul twelve, “ ills soon c u to ff,” and the old man hastens to his rest, and when past for sum aud substance, it is but the winter- evemng’sriale. So it is with the great family of man, and will be till the last generation shall stand upon ihe verge of Eiernuy; while crea­ tion strikes the “ death knell ot its own decease,” and lhai last generation have passed away.— But we will not complain, w hile ‘ o u rRedeem er liveth,’ and oriental literature abounds, with the beautiful imagery of the weaver’s shuttle, “ P raise be to God”—immutable—“ Who hath woven the web o f human affairs in lhe loom of his will and his uisdom .” When ive look ior- ward to three score years, il is a point quite re­ moved in the future. But said one of the aged Pastors o f New England, in his fiftieth anniver­ sary Sermon, last A pril, “ W’ho can look back to it, even through the mists lhat envelope its changes and vicissitudes, without exclaiming, Surely, ble is a vapour, that appeareth lor a little tune and then vanisheth away ! ’ ” Enough has been said to substantiate the fact oi m an’s lraihy—in a world too, w here every tear, and groan, and dying struggle, and new* m ade grave, but echoes the solemn declaration contained in the text. But vain and shadowy as are tbe days o f our life upon earth, do they pass away leaving no “ tale to be loid ” when they are goue ? If it is true that more than 35,000,900 human souls pass into the unseen world every year, then more than three score die every m in u te; and even the moments o f the infant, that but opens its eyes, anff gasps and disappears, having an­ swered the end of its being here, may tell a tale fiaught with interest lo mortals. But we h ave not met to day to excite your fancies on the reminiscences of infant days, though they may, to the fond mother, crowd thick around lhe deserted cradle. It is not the intam 's coffin I see before me ; those locks are not the locks o f the man of this generation— nor the countenance o f the one that preceded it. It is an old century oak, that has been felled, and brought down from the hills, bereft of its lellous, and asks to be carried to its rest— w here December w inds shall no longer howl among ils branches, or the summer solstice burn its naked body. Oh, my friends, w h at a tide o f thought rushes over my mind as I look upon the cold remains of him around whom we have thjs day gathered, to render to the earth that wntch is earthy — Though it remains true o f him, as o f others, that he spent his years as a “ tale that is told ” — yet, what chronicled events, making iheir strong im press on the period o f bis days, is presented by the Era in which he lived. Ninety and two years and four months and some days, were the days o f bis pilgrimage ; and we would pause at his g rave— who can forbid it—yes, pause—to remember to what memories o f m en and events, he was a living link—connecting tbe present and the past—experience and history. And who will not say, as we run along the chain, that the life of our F ather, whom we ihis day commit to the dust, has witnessed m ore changes in the n atural, yes, and in the moral condition ot the human family, than an equal period in ages precedent had wrought. H e had obtained even legal manhood, before this republic, which is now the peer o f any nation on eartb, had an existence. In his boyhood, the choice spirits of New England—the future cradle of L iberty and cloud was the garm ent thereof, and thick d ark­ ness a swadling band lor i t !” W hat did our Father live to see? A reed shaken wnlt the wind?—a man born to wear soft raiment in King’s houses ? No—but the uprising of a g reat nation, every part o f it traversed by ihorougb- lares more rapid than the fabled coursers of eastern legends. Its population rolling on to the setting-sun—its traffic seeking every corner, and its power known and tell in every quarter of ihe globe. While at his mountain home our Father’s ears heard o f the West, even these thiesholds of that great Em pire, it was the sound of a far off w ilderness ; yet he dies among us, with that West grown old and brought with­ in a few hour’s journey o f the sea-board. Il is strange to reflect on ihe great and illus­ trious men. who, though known to us on the page ut history, yet lived and wrote and spoke ill the days o f the aged man now gone. In lit­ erature, was Johnson, and Steele, and Swift, and Goldsmith. In eloquence, B urke, and t ox, and Sheridan, and Erksktne, and Pitt. Of our own country, as it was born, and rose to ils manhood in his tune, it need not be said that ev­ ery name en teared to us by recollections of vir­ tue and patriotism, and eloquence, and wisdom, and piety, were familiar companions io his pass ing years. What a life was that, w hich had lor its boyhood the Colony and the R evolution—for its manhood the uprising of a great nation—for its old age the zenith ol ait, invention, and pros­ perity!— But not merely in its destiny of ihe Earth, E arthy, has the world advanced. The trium phs o f Christianity have overleaped the visions of lhe past, since the days o f prophets and of miracles. In 1753, who had heard of missions and Sabbath schools—and Bible and Tract societies, pouring their treasures upon all lands, in comparison to which, the gold, and the silver and the rivers, and a few feet of unbroken territory is dross indeed. Temperance and a more perfect freedom to the sons of every land —all these in our fathers’ days, sprung into life, all are the offspring o f that convulsive action of the human intellect, which distinguished the last half o f the last century. T h e r e w e r e g i a n t s i n t h o s e o l d d a y s ; w h e n Whitfield, Whom Ollf father satv and heard, seemed to have caught the mantle o f Apollos — whose clear rich voice, laden with the offer of the gospel, accompanied with eloquent look and gesture, melted the soul, as it charmed the ear. Then Edwards, w ith his mind like a crystal fount, overflowing with pure reason, had not passed away. Then Doddridge, Owen, New­ ton. Scott, and Henry dwelt among men—in the days of our father. And who of us shall lake their arm or 7 And what is his providence yet to w ork out in the fleeting years of tho-e who now gaze upon yonder Coffin ? Nor has his personal history heen devoid of I n t e r e s t t o h i s n u m e r o u s a c q u a i n t a n c e s , t h o u g h unsignalised in the archives of his countiy.— Our lather was born in the town o f Norwich, Conn., Aug. °,8, 1753, just one year after the British Parliament had changed the method of reckoning time from the Julian, or old style, to the Gregoriau, or new style. But scarcely had manhood fixed its seal upon that br>\v. covered by locks now fallen, or blanched with the frosts of 93 winters, w hen the tempest of w ar burst u p ­ on the true hearted of N ew England. In 1776, inspired with that same spirit which fired every true Saul, lo do, be free, or die, he laid his all upon the altar ot his country. At the end of four years he took a regular discharge as order­ ly sergeant, returned to his native place, m ar­ ried Lucy Huntington, and moved to Vermont. In 1811, like Jacob, who w ent down into the fat valltes o f the Nile, to his son Joseph, he came with his companion, lo this place, w here his eld­ est son E leazar had come in 1798, who, in com­ pany with our daughter, Mrs. Sm ith— w ith whom he has resided for about 17 years— 5 grand children and 2 great grand children, is soon ro follow his rem ains to the grave.— And rhongh no princely monument shall tell Itis wort'n, or that of his compeers in the con flict that once was, the meanest sod From such a soil, with nothing but the dewdrops o f the morning to gild it, is a prouder one than Cresar can boast His posterity are ten children, 5 liv­ ing, 51 grand children, about 40 living, and 50 great grand children; in all, over 100 sliii liv­ ing. What a family, could they now be g ather­ ed around the old stock. And w hat w as our father ? Whoever reproach­ ed h im ? Temperance, truth, sobriety and pu­ rity, and liberality were the marked traits in his character. He was cheerful, but never jocose — condescending, but never trifling—in diet, dress, and manner, plain, though luxuries were wiihin his reach. He had a strong reverence fcr the wise and good I have sometimes thought the F a th e r o f his C ouniry had impress­ ed his own m o ral lineaments upon the hearts of those who once moved in his presence. Though contrary to tradition, I have heard our lather say he once saw W ashington laugh ; he often prayed. His mental faculties seemed unim­ paired until wiihin a few days o f his death — He read much—besides the political movements and improvements o f all countries, the New York Observer and ihe B ible w as his library.— On Sept. 4, for the last time, he walked from Mr. Smith’s to the centre of the village. I ac­ companied him —his step was slow—our con­ versation w as upon the great salvation His con­ cluding rem ark was, as the tears rolled freely down his furrowed cheek, “ My faith is in the fulness o f the atonement, and my hope in the efficacy of Christ’s death.” I marked it; it was to me prophetical o f this event. Fathers and B rothers, the old man whom we have seen walking these streets, o r leaning u p ­ on his staff in the door, his face towards the sel­ ling sun, has passed away. The voice almost of a century o f years is hushed in the beginning of its eternity. “ T h e spirit has gone unto God who gave it, and the dust shall return to the earth as il was.” * * * # * * • # On us have the latter days come- There is by the toils o f o u r F ather, a goodly heritage planted for us. Thus distinguished, fostered, favored, blessed, h as been o u r lot. Our hope, that the past shall be tbe prophetic dawn of the ‘N o parent.-!’ ‘Not one; I am quite a stranger in the Island Three years ago, my father, an E n g lish sol­ dier, and my moiher, left London with me for the Indies, but a la s ! m y father died on the voy age, and when the vessel reached this Island, my poor mother was so ill that she could not proceed further, and we were left here. ‘She was ill for a long time, and h aving no resources left for her support, I was advised to sett flowers. A geniletnan in the town, who made inquiries a s te o n r prospects, took pity on us, gave us this cottage, where my mother’s health improved, apd where she lived nearly two years, during which we w ere supported bv the sale of flowers. About a y ear ago my poor mother had a relapse, and obtained a release from all earthly sufferings. On her death-bed she recommended m t lo trust in Providence and I feel a pleasure in obeying her last w ish.’ The young girl h aving thus spoken b u rst into tears. During this short rectial, Napoleon was very much affected, and when she burst into tears, he sobbed loudly. At length he said, ‘Poorchild! what sins could you have commit­ ted that you should have been exiled here so miserably? Singular fulfilment of d estiny!— Like me she has no country, no family—she has no moiher, and I—I have no c h ild!’ After pronouncing these words, the emperor again sobbed audibly, and his tears flowed free­ ly. Yes, this great man, whom the loss o f the most brilliant ihrone in the world affected not, who was calm amidst desolation itself, wept at the recital of this p o o f girl. After a few’ moments he resumed his cus­ tomary firmness, and said to her, ‘I wish to take home with me a souvenir of m y visit to your cottage. Gather some of your best flowers, aud make me a grand boquette.’ H enrietta quickly made the boquette; and when Napoleon gave her five Imtis d’or for it, she cried w iih astonishment. ‘Ah! sir, why did you not come sooner? My poor mother would not then have d ie d !’ ‘Well, well my child, these are very good sentiments, i w it come and see you again.’ Then, blush' tg and regarding the five pieces of gold, Henrietta replied, ‘But sir I can never give you flowers enough for all this money !’ ‘Do not let that trouble you,’ answered N a ­ poleon, smiling. ‘I will come and fetch them.’ He then left her. When he had regained his companions, he informed them o f his discovery. He seemed happy in having one as unfortunate as him self to console; and on the spot, the young Henrietta augmented the special nomen­ clature of Longwood. He called her ‘the nymph o f St. Helena.’ for amongst his friends Napoleon habitually baptized all that surround ed him with a fam iliar cognomen. Thus Ihe part o f the Island which he most frequented he called lhe ‘Valley of Silence.’ Mr. Balcomb, with whom he stayed on his first arrival al St. Helena, was the ‘Amphitryon.’ H is cousin, the mayor, w ho was about six feet high, was called the •Giant.’ Sir George C ockbnrn w as designa­ ted as ‘M r. Admiral,’ w hen the emperor w as pleased— but w hen he had cause for complaint, his only title was ‘the S h ark.’ Some days after this visit to the cojtage, N a ­ poleon said, when dressing, that he w ould re- turn to his pupil, and perform his promise. He found the young girl at home ; she had learnt since his last visit (he name o f her benefaciorjcind much moved, not so much at his past grandeur ash y his recent calamities, entreated him to ac­ cept the hospitality of her humble cottage. She then brought him figs, and water from the A Story o f P o c k e t P icking.

A few weeks since, a gentlem an a t tb e Astor House, in New York, suddenly mi-sed a gold watch, which was worih more to him ihati it could be to any body else. H e marvelled much at its absence, for he knew he had only been iu and out o f the Office and Beading Room o f the Hotel since he noted the hour by tt. Io hope o f recovering it. he advertised his loss ahd offi-red a rewairt of $50. The same day he received a note informing him that he could have his watch by catling at a ceriain house in an ob­ scure p ari o f the city. After some little hesita­ tion he resolved to go. The watch was loo vat- uaole to him to be given u p without at least this attem pt to recover it. So he went. His call at the door w as promptly answered by a very gentlemanly looking person, who in reply to his inquiries, replied that he h ad in h is posses­ sion ihe advertised watch, and that on payment of the offered reward he would deliver it up.— The loser promised to pay the $50, provided he was convinced the waich was his. It was ex­ hibited, and the gentleman recognized it a t once, paid the reward, and gladly placed the recovei- ed treasure in ils place in his vest pocket. As he was turning to go away, he remarked. “I am glad, as you may suppose, to get my watch back again, but I really should be pleas­ ed io know how you took it from me.” “That 1 will inform you,” readily replied the pick-pocket. \Do you remember holding an animated conversation with two other gentle­ men in the R eading R oom o f the Astor House on the morning you lost y o u r w atch?” “I do,” replied the loser. “W ell,do you not alsorem em bei lhat a gen­ tleman who stood close by, left his newspaper, drew n ear and finally joined in the discussion?” •‘Very distinctly,” repled the other, “ and also that he engaged in it with much warmth.” “Precisely,” continued Ihe narrator, \and do you not remember that he at one time, in his earnestness, tapped you two or three times on the left breasi, thus ?” (suiting the action to the word.) “Yes,” replied the gentleman. “ Then I took your watch,” said the oilier, and turning, shut the door and disappeared. The gentleman returned to the A stor, musing on this strange occurrence, and while relating it to some o f his wondering friends, was aston­ ished to find that his w atch was again missing ! When the adroit k n ight o f the nimble fingers .^llv Ut I a > V lilUIVIU Dllgv described to him how he hail on.e filched from him his watch, he took it again '. So lhe gen­ tleman finally lost his watch, after having paid to the thief the reward tor its recovery !

W hen I come to see you I wish noihing Detier than your water, which is excellent On this condition, I will re- vi>it you ! A f'er all, I am but a n old soldier, as your father was; and that soldier who is not satisfied w ith figs and w ater is no soldier at all.’ From this day Napoleon did not visit the valley without calling at the collage of Henri- etta. On these occasions she presented him with a magnificent boquet, especially prepared lor him ; and after a little friendly chat with her, he would continue his ride, familiarly dis­ coursing with those who accompanied him on the great and excellent qualities which this young E nglish girl possessed. In the following y ear N apoleon began to suf­ fer from the attacks o flhe malady which alter-1 wards proved fatal to him. Henrietta, not re­ ceiving the visits o f her benefactor, went to in quire alter his health ; and alter having left the customary boquet with one o f his attendants returned home very disconsolately. One fine day shortly afterwards, as she was sitting in her garden, she heard the sound o f an approaching carriage; and running quickly io the gate, found herself in the presence o f Napoleon.— As soon as she beheld him, he'r face assumed an expression o f great sadness. ‘You find me much changed, do you not my child P said he in a faint voice. Yes, sire, I do indeed; but I hope you will soon be restored to health.’ I much doubt it,’ h e said, shrugging his shoulders with an air of incredulity. ‘N ever­ theless, I much wished lo pay you a visit to­ day, to see you and your flowers once again. He then slowly descended from the carriage; and leaning on the arm of Bertrand, reached ihecotlage. W hen he was seated he observed: •Give me a cup o f water from the spring my dear Henrietta; that w ill perhaps cool the fever which consumes me . . . hete,’— (laying his hand on his suie.’) The young girl hastened to fetch some.—- When Napoleon had p artaken o t it, his counte­ nance, nil then contracted, became serene. ‘Thanks! thanks! my dear c h ili,’ said he, ‘this water h as eased my sufferings a tittle. If f bad taken it sooner, perhaps added he, raising his eyes to heaven , but now it is too late.’ ‘Ah !’ replied H enrietta, affecting a g ayety o f manner, ‘1 am so happy that this water does you good I will bring you some every day, it will perhaps cure you !’ ‘No, my d ea r child, it will be useless now ; all is over. I fear this w ill be the last visit I will make here. There is a settled grief here j which is consuming me (and the emperor touch­ ed his side) and as I m ay n ever see you again I wish to leave you a souvenir of me. YThat shall I give you ?’ At these words the young girt could contain herself no longer ; but bursting into heartfelt tears, fell at the feet o f the emperor, saying— ‘Your blessing, sire.’ Napoleon rose and blessed her with becoming gravity ; for he always had respect for the creed o f others. , , From that day Henrietta did not fail to v is­ it Longwood regularly. She carried w ater from the spring and her customary boquet, but a l­ ways returned home disconsolate; for each day she received the most alarm in g accounts o fthe health o f ihe emperor.

The Genesee F arm er gives this b rief sum m a­ ry o f the native countries o f our most fam iliar plains: The Potato is a native of South America, and is still found wild in Chili, P eru and M onte­ video, In ils native state ihe rooi is small and bitter. The first mention of it by European writers is in 15?8. It is now spread over the world. W heat and Rye originated in Tartaij* and Siberia, where they are still indigenous.— The only country where ihe Oat is Found wild is in AbySSltlta, and hence may be considered a native. Maize or Indian Corn, is a native o f Mexico, and was unknown in E urope until after the discoveries o f C olumbus. The B read F ruit tree is a native of South Sea Islands, p anicu- larly Otaheite. Tea is found a native no where except in China and Japan, from which country the w orld is supplied. The Cocoa n u t is a native of m ost equinoctial countries, and is one of the m ost val­ uable trees, as food, clothing and shelter are af­ forded by n. Coffee is a native o f Arabia Felix, but is now spread inio both tbe E a s t and W est Indies. The best coffee is brought from Mocha, in Arabia, whence about fourteen millions o f pounds are annually exported. St. Domiugo furnishes from sixty to seventy millions pounds yearly. All the varieties of the Apple are de­ rived from the crab apple, which is found na­ tive in most parts o f the world.
