just humming a new tuno ; he picked
up the paper, and after reading it,

aware of the circumstances."
i"I don't doubt it,V said Eugenie.
"But I am not yet sufficiently ac

"You shall know everything."

Tlie next morning a similar billet lay
on the same spot. : The first person who
read it took down the address ; in his

Next came a you nif couple, who nad
not long been married, and picked up
the billet. Julia, who. expected in
about three months to become, for the
first time; a mother, said to her hus
band; ., ... . J
Let us go, my dear ; - what we . can
offer is but i little, to be sure: but ' in
many cases a little mav save the unfor

, They accordingly went.; After they
found the specified number in tlie Rue
Saintonge, they learned that the house
was inhabited by an old physician, who
had retired from i practice, and was
thought to be rich, and had ? an only
daugnter, distinguished for understand
ing and talents. fPhey ascendoU a hand
some staircase and were "ushered .into
an apartment on tlie . first floor, . which
was furnished not magnificently but
with" great taste. They , inquired for
Eugenie de Mirande, and a lady,youngT
elegant and accomplished, inatle her
appearance. She requested her visitors
to step inte a saloon that seemed to be
tlie haunt of the success. Books, draw
ings, and musical instruments were in
termingled, and formed by no means
aqjinplpitSiint mntrast.wlth - tho neat
ness and order which everywhere pre
vailed. .Theyoung cmipJe could not
conceive where persons in need of as
sistance, were to be 5 sotijrht in such .a.
h:hiLation. . -
- I fearu madam'? said Julia, "that
we are wrong. We found a billet with
your direction ln the Tuileries, and ex
pected to meet a distressed icrson to
whom we might lnivo affonledsome
relief; but all that we see here seems
rather to indicate opulence than to call
for the exercise of benevolence."
Kugenie replied, with some embar
rassment, that she was merely the in
terpreter of a very unfortunate female,
wlio, from a relic of pride, wished to
remain unknown, that was certainly
deserving' of teompassion.'" Julia ex
pressed a wish to become acquainted
with this lady. , . . V .
"I am no stranger to distress," said
she; lefore me she would have no oc
casion to blush." ,
Kugenie declinetl to gratify her in
this iwrticular, olsorving that misfor

tion! And how old are? her children ?"
"They.are all very, yomig. The eldest
is a girl of five years." , u v - ,
It was concise, clear and energetic.
Eugenie read it with evident pleasure.

said slie to herself, with great empha
sis. "Were I tlie minister you would

THE BRAVEST SOLDIER ''X't ' V'ATERLOO.
A British officer has been favored
with the following anecdote apropos of
the Waterloo anniversary: V i
"Some few. years ago two gentlemen
waited on the Duke of Wellington at
Apsley House, and told him that a
friend of theirs had died, leaving them
executors to his will, iri, which, among
other bequests, he had left five hun
dred pounds to the bravest man, in the
Britisji army, as they considered him
to be the bravest man they had called
to hand over to him a check for the
"The Duke was much pleased at the
compliment paid to him, but declined
to receive the money, as he said there
were many other men in the British
army who equalled him in bravery!
He was then requested to decide on
whom the money should be bestowed.
This was a difficult point ; but at length
he proposed it should be given to Major-General
Sir James Macdonell, who
so resolutely-defended Hougomont,the
key to the British position in the .mem
orable battle of .Waterloo.
"The two gentlemen then" called, on
Major-General Macdonell, telling him
the decision of the Duke of Wellington,
and tendering' him the five hundred
pounds. But Sir James, in his ' turn,
declined to receive it," knowing, as he
said, a man who, in the battle of Wa-:
terloo, had shown himself equal to any
one in bravery. The major-general then
consequent upon this murder was, gen-:
eral, and the perpetrator t was lorced to
leave Louisville. The social - relation
of the family were considerably disturb
ed, but not broken by thi3 event. The
ray life of the voung lady continued!

who were soon after driven back with
great slaughter. Thus was the fortune
of the day decided.
"The Duke of Wellington considered
Major-General Macdonell deserving of

defence or Iiougomont, and Sir James
considered that Sergeant-Major Fraser
was entitled to share it with him, on
