And dreams of greatness in thine eye,

Thy golden fortunes tower they now?
Or melt the glittering shapes to air?

Who writhe in throes of mortal pain?
"Some, famine-slruck, shall think how long
The cold, dark hours how slow the light ;
And some who flaunt amid the throng,
Shall hide in dens of shame to-night.

Anrrdote of Napoleon I.
Napoleon was accustomed to wear a
coat of mail under his clothes, and which
he was threatened, having all Europe
leagued against him, by every means in
his power. He accordingly sent for a
clever workman and asked if he thought
himself competent to make a coat of mail
of such texture that no weapon whatever
could penetrate. On the artificer an-
swering in the affirmative, Napoleon
agreed to give him 18,0(K) francs, tho
sum nuked. On the day fixed, the man
brought his work to the palace. Napo
leon quickly examined it, and ordered
the workman to put it on himself. The
man obeyed. Napoleon took two pistols,
saying, "e shall now see wiiemer mis
coat of mail is of the texture you promised
me." He fired at his breast, the cuirass
resisted. "Turn around." The man
obeyed. The Bccond bail struck his back
with the same result. The poor artificer,
half dead with fright, thought these trials
would be sufficient, but ho was mistaken
in his calculations. Bonaparte next arm
ed himself with a long fowling piece, and
made the same experiment on the shoul
ders, buck and breast of the trembling
patient. Happily the cuirass resisted,
and saved the inventor from so cruel a
trial. "How much am I to pay -youf
said Napoleon, after this noble exploit.
"Eighteen thousand francs," stammered
the affrighted artificer. "No such thing,
sir," said Napoleon, "I shall give you
thirty-six thousand francs," and gave an
order on his treasurer for that amount.
A Monkey's Memory.
Authors generally think the monkey
race are not capable of retaining lasting
impressions, but their memory is remark
ably tenacious when striking events call
it into action. A monkey which was per
mitted to run free, had frequently seen

down a powder horn that stood on the
chimney-place, and throw a few grains
into the fire, to make Jemima and the
rest of the maids jump and scream, which
they always did on such occasions very
Pug watched his opjsjrtunity, and when
all was still, and he had the kitchen to
himself, he clambered up, got possession
of the well-filled powder horn, perched
himself very gingerly on one of the hori
zontal wheels placed for the support of
sauce-pans, right over the warm ashea o

on a suinuver day he came down a car
bonated "nigger" in miniature, in an
avalanche of burning soot.
The weight with w hich he pitched upon
the hot ashes, in the midst of the general
(lare-up, aroused him to a sense of his
condition. He was missed for days.
Hunger at last drove him forth; he
sneaked into the house, close-singed, be
grimmed, and looked seared and ugly.
He recovered with care; and like some
great personages, he never got over the
sudden elevation and fall, but became a
sadder if not a wiser monkey. If ever
Pug forgot himself and was troublesome,
you had only to take down a powder horn
in his presence, and he was off to his hole
like a shot, screaming and chattering his
if jaws like a pair of castanets.
