Kenan's Good Angel.
At the time I Crst met Penan he had
not been many months home from tho
East, says a correspondent of the London
Truth. He was worn and wan from fev
er, and suffering from deep melancholy.
The death of liis sister, Henrietta, was the
cause of his depressed spirits. She was
his good tngel from ths day of his birth
to the day of her death at Beyrout. Their
father, a Breton E"ea Captain, was drown
xd in a tempest. Ernest was a posthu
mous child, and much younger that Hen
rietta, who adopted him from his birth,
nursed him, watched over him, and expa
triated herself to secure him enough mon
ey on which to start with independence
iu a literary career, which she had a pre
sentiment he was to follow. Prussian
Poland was the country of her voluntary
xile. She was there a governess, and in
a cold Northern Winter was smitten with
a mortal disease. When Ernest commun
icated to her by letter the doubts which
had taken jKssession of him, and which
no effort of the will or reason could allay,
she gave up her situation, came back to
Paris with her savings, encouraged the
young seminarist to throw aside the frock
and to listen to tho secret voice, hired a
quiet lodging for him in a garden in the
Old Quarticr St. Jacques, became his
housekeeper, secretary and literary guide,
and brought him to the point where Mine.
Cornu took him up. The Emperor's fos
ter sister spoke of Bcnaa as a paragon of
human virtue and a doux entett. He was
a poet, was living a poet's life, and would
continue to live it to the end. But she
thought tiie visible touch of the sister's
en would be missed by his readers, and
that tho Yirgilian sweetness of Kenan's
ttyle, for want of Henrietta's inspiration,
would degenerate to insipidity, la read
ing Claude Bernard's works, lus style
took a strength and body w hich had been
foreign to it.
JIme. Bonaparte's Wit.
It was while residing in Vienna that
she made the retort to tho English Ambas
bador 3X the Austrian Court, which, was
repeated all over Europe, tajs the Balti
more Gazette. The story is that at a State
dinner given by Prince Mcttciuich it fell
to the English Ambassador to escort
Madame Bonaparte. In the drawing
room, previous to the dinner, they had
conversed upon the character of Napo
leon, whom the Englishman hated and
Madame Bonaparte admired, and the Am
bassador had stifle red from her sarcasm.
At dinner he thought he would get cvm
with his opponent. So when tho soup
was over he asked her if she had read
3Irs. Trollope's book on America. Jlad
ame Bonaparte s;ud she Lad. -
"Well, Madame," he asked, "did you
notice that Mrs. Trollopc pronounces all
Ycs," replied Madame Bonaparte,
"and I am not surprised at that. Were
the Americans the descendants of the In
dians or the Esquimaux, I should be as
tonished; but being the direct descend
ant of the English, it is very natural that
they should be vulgarians."
The Ambassador said nothing more on
