The Empress Josephine. — Escaping from thu-cares aw.! splendors of sovereign­ ty, often cfid the empress recede from tbe courtier throng, to watch the expansion of some rare exotic in her fine conservatories at Malmau-on. There was the favorite empire of Josephine ! She loved the im- portal purple of the rich caetus, at that pe­ riod a splendid novelty to European eyes, better than the hues of the rich mantle adorning her throne ; and the delicate fragrance of her closuring magnolias pro­ ved more intoxicating than the soothing but fatal breath of courtly adulation. At Malmaison she reigned despotic over thou­ sands of beauteous subjects, collected from all quarters of the globe. She knew them face by face, name by name—was fond of disposing them in classes, castes or regi­ ments ; and when some ftesh subject pre­ sented itself for tho first time at her levee, was able to interrogate the new comer, so as to ascertain his family and connexions, and assign him an appropiiate station in the community of which every brigade had its banner, and every banner a fitting stan­ dard bearer. Following tbe example of Napoleon, she respected the laws and customs of those she rendered tributary. Plants of all countries found their native soil and climate restored to them by her providence. Malmaisori was a world in miniature,within whose circumscribed lim­ its were to be found rocks and savannahs — the soil of virgin forests and (ho sand of the desert— banks of marl or clay — lakes, cascades or strands, liable to inun­ dation. From the heat cf a tropical cli­ mate you might fly to the refreshing cool- ness of the temperate zone ; and in these varied specimens of atmosphere and soil, flourished, side by side, the various races of vegetable kind, divided only by green odges or an entrenchment of glass win­ dows. When Josephine held her field days at Malmaison, the review was indeed caicul itcd to exci'e the tendjsrest assoeia tions. First in lhe ranks was the hydran­ gea, which had recently borrowed from her charming d'Ughter the French name of Hortenpiijf Gloiy too, found its remi- nisences there as well as maternal affec­ tion. Following the victories of Bona­ parte she contrived to reap her share in the plunder of conquered countries ; and Italy gnd Egypt paid tribute to her trium­ phant parterres. Blooming in resplend­ ent union at Malmaison were the soldan- ella of the Alps— the violet of Parma—the adonis of Castiglione— the carnation o f Lodi—the willow and plane of Syria— the cross of Malta—the water lily of the Nile—tho hibicus of Palestine—the roso of Damletta. Such were the conquests of Josephine ; and of these, at least, France still retains the benefit. But even in the midst of these treasures, Josephine still cultivated by predilectibn a plant remind­ ing her of her days of happy childhood ; that beautiful jasmine of Martinique, whose seeds, gathered and resown by her own hands, served to bring to her recollec­ tion not only the sports of girlhood, and the roof of her fathers,but her earliesthome of wedded love.— From(t L a Picciola,,> translated from Jl/. Sainiine by Mrs. Gore. A successful speculation is oftener an evil th a n a b l e s s i n g ; it u p s e t s o n e ’s n o ­ tio n s of th e v a l u e o f t i m e , of in d u s t r y , a n d of money; it is a moral evil, because jt violates tjie law of nature, which requires that a part of every day, and every year of one’s life, should be devoted to procuring the means of subsistence for the day and year; and he, who^ by what he calls a lucky hit, secures to himself what he calls a fortune, sometim.es cuts off from the re­ mainder ofhis days a wholesome and nat­ ural source of pleasure. If he has devo­ ted all his powers and energies to Mammon for the best part of hrs life, he is sold to him, nnd can no more live tranquilly, without his stimuli, than can he, who has been excited for years by alcohol, give up the stimulus of drink. Flence, you find such men uneasy and fretful in old age ; hence, often it is, that they are envious and vexed at the sight of happiness in oth­ ers; and that they seem to think a poor man has no right to enjoy himself more than they can, who have earned a hundred thousand dollars.— -Dr. Howe's Address. Sagacity off a Hog .— A nobleman of | your land of cakes and superstition was said Io have had a favorite mastiff, in j whom, such was his fondness, he had par- j doned many felonies, chiefly of sheep mur- > der. His patience being worn out, he a t 1 length ordered the dog to be hanged, and addressed him to that effect in a pathetic speech. The dog, as if he understood him, instantly disappeared, and was no more heard of in Scotland. Two years afterwards, the duke (for he was no less) j travelling in Flanders, was benighted in ; one of the forests there ; and the -next J stage being a fortified town, he was told at the lone inn where he had stopped, tliat being too late, he would not be admitted, and he agreed to a proposal made him to remain where he was al! night, the accom­ modation being tolerably good. At sup­ per, to his and his servant’s astonishment, he saw enter the room his old and favorite mastiff, whom he had been forced to con­ demn to death. Great were the rejoicings on both sides ; and it was observed that the dog would never quit him, but resist id all attempts of the people of the house to drive or coax him from tho chamber. As night advanced, and the Duke prepared to go to bed, the dog became agitated ; he howled and scratched the floor, then laid his paws on the Duke’s shoulders, and | looked wistfully in his face, but was com­ paratively quiet till the seivant departed to a chamber allotted to him out of the house. The Duke then beginning to undress, the dog became violent in opposing the strip­ ping, laid hold of his coat with his teeth, and struggled hard, and even fiercely, to prevent him from proceeding. The Duke was struck with this strange violence, and finding whenever he desisted that the dog was quiet, reposed himself in an arm-chair instead of going to bed. Here he dozed for a couple of hours, when he was awak­ ened by the bark of his friend, and on opening his e y e s , w a s astonished at seein g the bed descending through the floor. lie immediately gave the alarm ; the descent ofthe bed stopped, and the Duke grasped his pistols, waiting the event. Some mi­ nutes afterwards he thought tbe door, which was bolted in the inside, was at­ tempted, at least he heard footstep5, upon which he fired through the planks,* and hallooed loudly for his servant from-the window. It was midsummer, and soon became fight, and being joined by his man. they sallied over tbe house, accompanied everywhere by the dog, who expressed his pleasure, it is s -id, bv eyery possible ca­ nine gesticulation. They searched the house, and every adjoining shed, but found the whole abandoned ; nor (that I ever heard) was there any further result. But the dog was of course taken hom e , pardoned all his felonies, aud lived happily with his master ever afterwards.— Illustra­ tions off Human Life. T ough IT en S t o r ie s .— T he follow ing stories were told sim u ltaneously, and o f course without any possibility of a design on the part o f one t o tell a bigger story than the o t h e r : The Claremont Eagle relates that a hen Was shut up in a small, close room in an untenanted house, tw e n t y - four days, with not a particle of food, and came out in good condition at the end of that time. There were twD eggs in the room, but she did not touch th'ern. But the Portia.,d Argus outsoars the EaMe as the eagle outsoars a common hen. o o The veracious editor of that print— and it is a Jackson print—says that a man in that neighborhood, when pitching out some bay, in the month of June, found the body of a hen which must have been buri­ ed in the July previous, when the hay was put into the barn. It w a s very much compressed, but on being exposed to the air, signs of life appeared about the eyes, and by applying tho proper remedies she was restored to health and uspfulness.’ In relation to “ over-banking ” the Ar­ gus says : — “ The fact that the oppos ition party on n and control two thirds if not three fourths of all the banking capital in the United States, is conclusive proof that over bank­ ing has been produced by the influence and power of the moneyed aristocracy. There is now and then a bank which has a majority of stockholders who are on the side of the administration ; but these cases are ‘ few and far between.’ ” We have seldom met with a bolder ur balder imposition than this ! But its very grossness exposes the fraud. If it were true, as is here alleged, that the opposi­ tion party own and control three fourths of the banking capital in the state,” it would only prove, what is notoriously true, that they purchased the stock at a prem ium ol ten, fifteen and twenty per cent, of the re­ gency political brokers who obtained the charters, But the statement is untrue. The banks were chartered by the Regen­ cy under a system which oiiginated with Van Buren, and formed a portion of the machinery of party. VVe have one hundred banks in thi? state, s i x t y , or three fifth* of whfi-h. h.rve been chartered since Mr. Van Buron w,n, elected Governor in IS28. The Arsjue «ef». Genuine politeness consists chiefly in the exhibition of fine feelings. Where we love, esteem, admire, we are naturally polite. But there is a species of polite­ ness in the world, worn over’ the sheerest heartlessness, which is detected most rea­ dily by lhe pains it tabes to avoid detec­ tion the e x c e s s of mannerism which It exhibits. The simplest act of disinterest­ ed k i n d n e s s — the tone, and tear, and little attentions which show where out sympa­ thies are—the assiduous care I n avoiding whatever may give pain in doing woat- ever may give pleasure, no matter how­ ever unostentatiously, stamps the man o genuine politeness. * F r e n c h F L ^ u B ^ AmOD?I lh e °fh ^ curious things that of late have ■ arrived among us, is the article of F r e n c h Flour, in barrels, as ground and put up in France, lately imported at N ew York.

Shepard and Mosely, the opponent candidates for Congress in the Craven District, in that state, had deter­ mined to pursue their canvassing together, and in amity. Mr. Mosely, a few days since, left Newbern with the intention of visiting an election ground, and became severely sick on the way. A few hours afterward, Mr. Shepard set out with the same intention. On the way he met with a farmer, who informed him of Mr. M’s condition ; when, instead of taking the advantage of his opponent’s misfortune, as a narrotv-souled partisan would have done, Mr. S. intermitted his journey, drove to the negro hut at which Mr. M. had been compelled to stop, paid him every attention, and had him conveyed to the residence o f an hospitable gentle­ man in the neighborhood. Nor did he pursue his intention of visiting the election ground, but returned to town. ‘‘ We pre­ sume, says the Spectator, that Mr. Mosely would have acted with the same delicacy and good feeling if the case had been re­ versed : and we mention the fact as an ev­ idence that the reign o f vulgar and vindic­ tive party hostility is nassing away.” which they have revolutionized, if not ruin< ed the county. — L o t C l a r k had a bank at Lockport, but the engine o f iniquity was “ Expunged ” by the last legislature.

For many years back, I have questioned iho?.e af­ fected with this disease, as to their use of tobacco, and they haye generally answer­ ed in the affirmative.
