He was in general a bad sleeper, and frequently get up at three or lour o'clock, in which case he read or vrote until six or seven, at which time, when the weather was fine, he omelimrs went out to ride, attended by some of his grnrrals, or laid down to rest again for a couple of hours. When he retired to bed, he could rot tl- p unless the most perfect state o! dirkness was obtained, by the closure of every cranny through which a ray ol light rnignt pass, although I have sometimes seen him fall asleep on the sola, and remain so for a few minutes in broad davhght.

He ate heartily and fast, and did not appear to be partial to high seasoned, or rich food. One of his most favorite dishes Was a roasted leg of mutton, of which I have sometimes seen him pare the o tside brown part tiff; he was also ford of mutton chops. He rarely dro,k as much ns n pint of claret at hiv cbnner, w hich was generally much di! ited with water.

White the m.tiuo ivres for this purpose were executing, the centre remained motionless. At the distance of ab"ut from this to the outer gate, I observed a group of persons collected together on horseback. Concluding that they were endeavoring to observe my ma noeuvres, I resolved to disturb them, and called a captain of artillery, who commanded a field battery of eighteen or twenty pieces: "Jettez uiie dou aine de boulejs a la fois dans ce groupe 1 1, peutetre il y en qutlrpacs petits gen er.uix." ( Throw a dozen of bullets at once into that group; perhaps there are some little generals in it.) It was done instantly. One of the b.ills struck Morcau, carried off both his legs, and went thro-igh his horse. Many more, I believe, who were near him, were killed and wounded. A moment be fore, Alexander had been speaking to him. Moreau's legs were amputated not far from the spot. One of the feet, with the boot upon it, which the sur geon h id thrown upon the ground, was brougnt bv a peasant to the King of S xony, with infoim..tion that some olliccr of great distinction had been si i ink by a cannon shot.

About ten years ngo, a young man, aged about 28 years, and ahlitted with this disease to a gteat degree, arrived from Scotland. He had in vain em ployed the best physicians in Great Uritain and on the eontinent, none of whom could cure him ; and on his ur lival in this city, had actually nine run ning sres in his neck, so that his exis tence had becomeburthensome to him. It so happened that the person with whom he logded had one evening brought from town some pitch for do mestic purpose, and, either reasoning from its medical properties in other . ascs, rr (as our informant thinks, but as appears to us very improbable,) thro' merriment, told the man a pitch plaster would certainly cure him.

The necessity for this change is sufficiently evident, because, if men could be permitted to carry these evil dispositions with them into the king dom of God, they w ould not be happy themselves, nT suffer others to be Wc see that even upon earth, if a wicke d, md gnant, and turbulent man was confined for life, in a virtuous, peaceable, and pious society, it w t !d be no inconsiderable punishment; and much more se vere would it be in heav en, where the contrast is greater and thc duration longer. Wickedntss nd misery are by nature so closely unite d, that they tanm t br separated, and there fore neither of them Can have a place in thc kingdom cf God. If anv one's dispositions are cruel, malignant, envious, tuibtiknt, factious, and :im hitious, though, in contradiction to , their impulse, he should perform all 1 the duties cf piety, benevolence, hu mility, and submission, he could not become a number of this holy una happy society, because his admission would be rather a punishment than a reward: before he tould attain this state of felicity, he must be qualified to enjoy it, and this can only be effect ed by being born again. How a man is to be born again, .1 esus further informj us in the succeeding verse; he there says, u Kxcept a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Lint-Join of God ;" that is, except a man be born again, by embracing the doctrines and obeying thc precepts ol his re ligion, for w hich purpose the ex ternal sign of baptism, and thc internal assistance of the holy spirit, are abso lutely necessary. Hy these, togrther with sincere repentance and reforma tion, he may become a new person, and perfectly qualified to be, and to make others happy in that blessed com munity 5 and when qualified, however great may have been his former offen ces, he will be readily admitted, and there w ill be joy in heaven at his re ception. It is the infirmity of poor spirits to be taken with every appearance, and dazzled with every thing that sparkles; but great geniuses have but li'.tle admiration, be cause few things appear tt them new.
