brilliant costumes, presented a" most
enchanting coup (Tttil. The evening
commenced by a concert, in which the

wore a veil and robe of the most cost

His younger brother (the Duke of
Elchingeo) was, on the contrsf jr, one of
the finest young men of f,! party.
About two o'cl'ick In the morning, the
windows of the drawing room which
looked upon the court were thrown
open, and offered sv many entrances

was spread a table capable of accom

of this table on her right was the
Prince de la Moakwa, and next to him
one of the prettiest girls present, the
daughter of the Dutchess of Otranto
(the widow of Fooche.) The tiands
and wines upon this table were renew,
ed seven or eight times during the
night, and done justice to by as many
detachments of fresh votaries.
During the whole time of the ban
quel, a military band continued play,
ing whilst the scene received a oovel,
picturesque, and dramatic effect from
the numbers of those guests who had
not yet supped, and who filled the win-
(lows ot trie a-panmenis loosing upon
the jrfcttory. For the first hour and
a half, M. Lafitte did not sit down to
supper, but took his station near the
principal enuance, in. ordcHosee that
every -ihig-went-on withT order,
promntitodr. and regularity. He bore

happiest day of JisJifc JEvcry one
was anxious to felicitate him, not only
on the occasion of his daughters mar.
riage, but also on his generous conduct
towards the town of Metidilsrn (me
naced with complete min) fr which
he had succeeded in opening a credit
of five millions of francs (200,000.)
the day before, srtting down his own
name for a very considerable part of
the sum. During supper there was

ferring the military renown of New
France to the musty parchments of the
old regime. It is even thought that
this noble indignation has not been al
together a stranger to some circum
stances that took place before the cel
ebration of the marriage. In the
course of the night preceding this
event, M. Lafitte received six anony

before the one appointed, another let
ter was received, stating that Mad'lle
Lafitte would be immolated even at
the steps of the altar ; and, what was
still more infamous and dastardly, two
similar letters were addressed to Mad.
Lafitte, who became seriously alarmed
on account of her daughter.
M. Lafitte, though attaching but
thought proper, however, to lay them
before the Prefect of Policey who also
looking upon them as contemptible
efforts of malice w i thout any serious
took certain precautions, which, to
those not in tfec secret, appeared some
what extraordinary. About the doors
of the church were posted some twen-
which was the bride, was escorted by
three or four more. No person was
admitted into the church without a
ticket. The prefect even carried his
precaution further; he procured se
veral of the most respectable looking
police agents, and sent them, in their
hoIjJ.tr eu.'. ti n.rr'j wuu the wfii
dressed crowd in the church, and keep
a sharp look'-out. No interruption,
however, to the ceremony, nor any cti.
dent of any kind took place, and all
passed off in perfect order and safety.
None of the French Peers whi voted
for, the death of Marshal Ney were
invited to the wedding. M, Lafitte
gave on the occasion, to the por of
his own parish, 1 0,000 f, (400.) and

may be easily felt by prefixing the fin

Uut the Divine Architect has so re
gulated his plans in the formation of
tbe earth, that man in the very centre
of the torrid zone, enjoys the most
delightful temperature ; and, what i
still more astonishing, he suffers the
unremitting cold of the poles. In
that part ol th torrid zone, which ex
tends along the coaht of Peru from the
equator to the tropic of Capricorn,
the corcliilera of the Andes exhibits
every gradation of climate.. . The bur
ning heat of the valleys diminishes as
the traveller ascends the mountains:
he finds the vigor and productions ot
the vegetable kingdom varying and
decreasing, until he arrives at tnc
frozen deserts on the summit of the
Andes, where no living thing can sub
sist To these mountains, therefore,
may be applied, with the utmost pro
priety, what the Arabian poets say ol
Mount Lebanon : " that its head is
adorned with shrinr; that Autumn re-
potea in Hi bottom, and Summer tietp-
at its feet."
