He was an emperor ; 10 wished to find an empire ; and by slow degrees ho mado himsclfrlarmhnr with the thought of putting her away, When tlio campaign of 1809 was at an end, hardened and nurrowed, the General came back to his wife.

The book in w hich hc had been last reading there, with the last pngo doubled down, and the pen which he had last used by it, with the ink dried on the point. When her death drew nigh, she I wished to soil her jewels to send the fallen emperor money ; and her will was suDmit ted Johis discretion.

THE JEWS. , ; The present physical, moral and social condition of the Jews must be a niiricle. We can come to no other conclusion. Had they 'continued from the commencement of the Christian era down to the present hour, in some such national state in which we find the Chinese, walled off from tho rest of the human family, and by their selfishness on o national scale, and their repulsion of alien elements, resisting every assault from with out in shape of hostile invasion, and from an overpowering national pride., forbidding tho introduction of new ana foreign customs we should not sec so much mystery inter woven with their existence. But this is not their state ; far from it- Tliey are peel- ed, and scattered, and crumbled into frag ments ; but like broken globules oRiiuck. silver, instinct with a coliesivjo power, ever claiming afiiiiity, and ever ready to nmal gamatc. Geography, arms, genius, poli. tics and foreign help, do not explain their existence; tune nnd climate, and customs, equally fail to unravel it. Nono of these are or can be the springs of tlicir perpetuity. They have, lived under the rrgintf of every dy nasty ; they have shared the protection of jasi laws, the proscription of cruel ones, and witnessed tho rise and progress of both;, they-havc used every, tongue, and lived in every latitude. Tlio snows of Lap. tand have chilled, and the suns of Africa have scorched them. They have drank of the Tiber, theV Thames, the Jordan, the Mississippi. - In every country, and in ev ery degree-' of latitudeandr longitude, wo liiHla Jew. Jt is not so wan any oiner race.

The New York Sun relates the follow ing: , - A physician of respectability ', who for mcrJy resided in this city, died a few "years since, leaving an only daughter, who was at that time about fourteen years of age. AH our citizens engaged in business, have fell the effects of the reaction produced by the rnad spirit of speculation in which all our enterprises were pursued; but upon him .more particularly fell its heaviest, weight". His whole, fortune was rt stakp; and the calamity swept away almost gycry vestige of his forincr competency. The motlier of the j'eung lady had dictf some years previous, and, by the decease of her father, she was lierselt in a large city "without a cent, nnd almost without a friend. 1 he young lady received from strangers all tlie5 sympathy which such a case would call forth, but few or none al. lowed tlieif feelings to interfere with their interests; she was consequently obiged to resort.tooiieof the many ways which this city affords to females to obtain a scanty subsistence. She at first procured work from a tailoring establishment, but being unused to applying to any occupation, she could scared v earn, enough to support ria3 tUrC. v.. . ! .

Conscious of her inexperience and of the many dangers to w hich her situ ation exposed licif, slie coasentcd, and has continued to fiilfjl the duties of a domestic until tnc present rnomeni. ,' A few months since, news arrived from England that the subject of our story had become heiress to twiity-fivc thousand pounds sterling, by t'ne deceaso of a distant relative.

A reverend gentleman, well know n as the piistor of one of our inoft respectaUe churches in the central portion of the city, and who had noticed the young lady, enme to the know ledge of the fact, and, at her suggestion , immediately engaged prtssngo in a steaiii. ship, and is at present actively engaged in proving his protege's claim, and making the necessary a rrani'-incnts to place her for tune entirely within her control. The young lady is about the age of 19, possessed of sorue considerable personal attractions, wliidh-are visible, despite of her humble occupation, w ith 'an education by no 1niiw4oniniercial prosperity which nothing can slenler; and with a disposition calculated to endear her to her acquaintances, she bids fair to yet occupy a station w hich will alfordher .mind an opportunity to reflect its virtues to a greater extent than in her late humble circumstances she could have anti cipated. 7 Kon'l le. a Nun ; or, the XauticOi ad ventures of young Lady. A singularly Ilomanticolfiiir has just been brought to our (notice, namely, that ot a lemale sailor having arnveo here sortie tiaySTago-mJlic ship uuccephalus.

Aa f bo Administration press has recent, fy been very busy quoting the orjijiiona of anonymous foreign correspondeiiis in res pect to tho party contests now waging in this country, and continual and reiterated chaages are rung upon the old, stale and "Britisli gold." Under these circumstan ces, it may not be unbecoming to quote some of the opinions of Britisli Tories of the tendencies of the policy of the party, and that our readers may see what thor ough bred monarchists thinkof the cliar. acter and acts of our democratic President , We commend the following article from ,a high toned British Tory paper to our read, era: . From the London St. Jamet Chronicle. The people of England may learn a lesson of Republicanism from its most bril. limit specimen, the Government of the Uui. ted Suites. Jt has proved a splendid failure. Van Buren, who lias learned many useful ; tactics in this country, will bring the democrats 'round to a ratiimnl jnuim tf ovuAivoa uia-iiiBua Ajiiusu i ii uuv iijO aiiu Monarclual obedience.

Mr. Van Bu ren has succeeded in running down a national bank, which was the mart formid able obstacle of Executive control, and has collected the reins pf a good team of State institutions, which will draw well together and bear him upwards like the steeds of Pegasus. The Republic of ho Unit, States, like that of Venice, will become an oligarchy; but it will be, unless we are mistaken, a' mot enduring one. It "will not, like Venice j become a splendid ruin of palaces ; for it has .arterial springs of paralyze, and which do not depend upon the diseased stomachs of Europe lbr"a healthful action. For fifty years or more, it will x a clever oligarchy, and then the people will wisely and cheerfully consent-to its becotn-1 ing a limited monarchy.
