But to return to tho committing of- fice. If the pnpers are not very strong, J he hurries oflT for a habeas corpus, fills up a writ and an affidavit, gets tho signature , of his credulous client (and sometimes, if necessary, slips in a blank bill of sale along w ith the other papers, and it passes for one of them with the nervous client), i and posts off. He is immense on the subject of an alibi or a habeas corpus. These are, with him, the north pole and south polo of the world of law, and per-jury is the grand equatorial line half way between. Won't i he manufacture you a pretty alibi ? Why, if necessary, and his victim will pay enough for it, he will issue a commission to Ohio to some pal of the accused, and run on there express, disguised, to either superintend the thing himself, or, if needs be, to be the witness himself.

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 the man servant in the great country . kitchen, with its huge fire-place, take 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 prettily. 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 i .. . l ,. i (r , an almost extinct wood fire, screwed off the top of the horn and reversed it over .u. .

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.
