THE CONTENTED MA It. BY WASHINGTON IRT1NQ. In the garden of the Tuilleries there is a sunny corner under the wall of a ter race which fronts the South. Along the wall is a row of benches commanding the view of the walks and avsnucs of the gar den. Ihe genial nook is a place of great ;esort in the latter part of autumn, and | in fine days in winter, as it seems to re tain the flavor of departed summer. On i a calm, bright morning, it is quite alive ! with nursery maids and their playful lit tic charges. Hither also resort a nom 1 btf of ancient ladies and gentlemen, vrno, witk laudable thrift in small pleasures ? and small expenses, for which the French , are to be noted, come here to enjoy sun ) shine and save firewood. Here may [ often be seen some cavalier of the oldtn school, when the sunbeams have warmed > his blood into something tike a glow, , fluttering'about like a frostbitten inoth ? thawal before the fire, putting forth a t feeble show of gallantry among anti . quated dames, and now ami then eyeing J the buxom nursery-maids with what might almost be mistaken for an air of : libertinism. Among the habitual frequenters of this r place. I had often remarked an old gen J tl cm an, whose dress was decidedly anti i revolutional. He wore the three-ror i nered cocked hat of the ancxcut regime ; i bis hair was frisaled over each ear into r (riles de pigeon, a style strongly savoring ? of Bourbunis.a ; and a autut stuck out behind, the loyalty of which was not to be disputed. His dress, though ancient, had an air of decayed gentility, and I ? observed that he took his snuff out of an r elegant though old-fashioned gold box. He appeared to be the most popular man i on the walk. He had a compliment for j every old lady, ho kissed every child, and he patted every dog on the head ; for ? children and little dogs are very impor , taut members of society in France. I t must observe, however, that he seldom kissed a child without, at the same time, pinching the nursery-maid's cheek; a Frenchman of the old school uever forgets . his dttotrs to the sex. r I had taken a lfting to thia old gentle j man. There was an habitual expression of benevolence in hia fact, which I hare very frequently remaked in these relics , of the politer days of France. The con = stant interchange of these thousand little , courtesies which imperceptibly sweeten life, have a happy effect on the features, f and spread a mellow evening charm over . the wrinkles of old age. When there is a favorable predisposi ! tion one soon forms a kind of tacit inti macy by often meeting on the same walks. Once or twice I accommodated | him with a bench, after which we touched t hats on passing each other; at length we got so far as to take a pinch of snuff - together out of his box, which is equiva 1 lent to eating salt together in the East; from that time our acquaintance was es tablished. , I now became his frequent companion in his morning promenades, and derived much amusement from hia pood hu mored remarks on men and things. One ( morning, as wc were strolling through ' the alley of the Tuilleries, with the au tumnal breeze whirling the yellow leaves about our path, my companion fell into ; a peculiarly communicative vein, and | gave me several particulars of his his tory. He had once been wealthy, and , possessed of a fine estate in the country. ' and a noble hotel in Paris ; but the rev , olution, which effected so many disas ; trous changes, stripped him of every thing. He was secretly denounced by his own steward during a sanguinary period of the revolution, and a number of the bloodhounds of the convention was sent to arrest him. He received private i intelligence of their approach in time to effect his escape. He landed in England without money or friends, but considered himself singularly fortunate in having his head upon his shoulders ; several of his neighbors having been guillotined as a punishment for being rich. When he reached London he had but a 1 lows in his pocket, and no prospect of i getting another. He ate a solitary din ner on Ueef steak, and was almost poi soned by port wine, which, from its color he had mistaken for claret. Tho dingy 1 loot oi the chop house, and of the little mahogany-oolored box in which he ate his dinner, contrasted sadly with the gay saloons of Paris. Everything looked gloomy and disheartening. Poverty stared him in the face; he turned over the few shillings he had of change: did not know what was to become of him? and went to the theatre. He took his seat in the pit, listened at tentively to ^ a tragedy, which seemed made up of fighting, and subbing, and scene-shifting, and began to fe?l his spirits sinking within him; when, cast ing his eves into the orchestra, what was his surprise to recognise an old friend and near neighbor in the very act of ex torting music from a l uge tiolincello. As soon as the evening's performance was over, he tapped his friend on tha shoulder ; they kissed each other oa the cheek, and the musician took him home, and shared his lodgings with him. lie learned music as an accomplishment; by his friend's advice he now turned it as a means of support. lie procured a violin, offered himself for the orchestra, was re ceived, and again considered himself one of the most fortunate men upon earth. Here, therefore, he lived for many years during the ascendency of Napo leon. lie found several emigrants living like himself, by the exercise of their tal ents. They associated together, talked of France and of old times, and endeav ored to keep up a semblance of Parisian life in the centre of London. They dined at a miserable cheap French restaurant in the neighborhood of Leices ter Square, where they were served with a caricature of French cookery. They took their promenade in St. James's Park, aid endeavored to fancy it the Tuilleries; in short, they made shift to accommodate themselves to everything but an English Sunday. Indeed, the old gentleman seemed to have nothing to *ay against the English, whom he affirmed to be braves gens; and he mingled so much among them that at the end of twenty years he could speak their language al most well enough to be understood. i he downfall of Napoleon was another epoch in bis life. He had considered himself a fortunate man to make his es cape penniless out of France, and he considered himsell fortunate to be able to return pennile-s into it. It is true that he found his Parisian hoiel had passed through several hands during the vicissitudes ot the times so as to be be yofnd the reach of recovery ; but then he had buen noticcd benignantly by govern ment, and had a pension of several hun dred francs, upon which, with care'ul management, he lived independently, and as far as I couid judge happily. As his once splendid hotel was now occupied as a hotel garni, he hired a small chamber in the attic ; "it was but,' as he said, 44 changing his bedroom up two pair of stairs?he was still in his own house.'* His room was decorated with piuures of several beauties of former times with whom he professed to have been on favorable terms ; among them was a favorite opera dancer, who had been the admiration of Pans at the breaking out of the revolution. She had been a protect of my friend, and one of the few of his youthful lavorites who had survived the lapse of time and its vari )u? vicissitudes. They had renewed their acquaintance, and she now and then vis ited him: but the beautiful Psyche, once the fashion of the day and the'idol of the parterre, was now a shriveled, little old woman, warped in the back, and with a hooked nose. The old gentleman was a devout atten dant upon the levees; he was most teal ous in his loyalty, and could not speak of the royal family without a burst of en thusiasm, for he still felt toward them as his companions in exile. As to his pov erty, he made light of it, and, indeed had a good humored way of consoling himself for every cross and privation. If he had lost his chateau in the country, ha had half a doeen royal palaces, as it were, at his command. lie had Versailles and St. Cloud for his country resorts, and the shady alleys of the Tuilleries and the Luxembourg fur his own recreation. Thus all his promenades and relaxations were magnificent, yet costing nothing. 44 Whea I walk through these line gar dens," said he. 441 have only to fancy myself the owner of them, and they are mine. All these gay crowds are my vis itors, and I defy the grand seignior him self to display a greater variety of beau ty. Nay, what is better, I have not the trouble of entertaining them. My estate is a perfect Sans Souci, where every one does as ho pleases, and no oae troubles the owner. All Paris is my theatre and presents witk a continued spectacle. I have a table spread for me in every street, and thousands ot waiters ready to fly at my bidding. When my servants have waited upon me, I pay them, dis charge them, and there's an end ; I have no fears of them wronging or pilfering me when my back is turned. Lpon the whole," continued the old gentleman, with a smile of infinite good humor, 44 when I think upon the various risks I have run, and the manner in which 1 have escaped them; when I recollect all that I have suffered, and consider all that I at present enjoy, I cannot but look upon myself as a man of singular good fortune." Such was the brief historv of this prac tical philosopher, and is the picture of many a Frenchman ruined by the revo lution. The French appear to have a greater facility than most men in accom modating themselves to tho reverses of life, and of extracting honey out of the bitter things of this world. The first shock of calamity is apt to overwhelm thtm; but when it is once past, their natural buoyancy of feeling soon brings them to the aurface. This may be called the result of levity of oharacter, but it answers the end of recon iling us to mis fortune, and ii it be not true philosophy, it is something almost m efficacious.? Ever since I have heard the story of m v little Frenchman, I have treasured it up iu my heart; ami I thank my ttars I haw length found what I have loug con N.

Since writing the fore going. the law of indemnity has been passed. and ray friend restored to a preat part of his fortune. I was abaent from Paris at the time, but on my return has tened to congratulate him. I found him magnificently lodged on the first floor of his hotel. I wis ushered, by a servant in livery, through splendid saloons, to a cabinet richly furnished, where I found my little Frenchman reclining on a cou^h. He received me with his usual cordiality; but I saw the gayety and be nevolence of his cauntenaace had flad i he had an eye of care and anxiety. T congratulated him on his good for tune "Good fortune!" echoed he: "bah! I have been plundered of a prinoely for tune, and they give me a pittance aa an indemnity." Alas! 1 found my late poor and con tented friend one of the richest and moat miserable men in Paris. Instead of re joicing in the ample oompetency reatored to him, he is daily repining at the aoper tluity withheld. He no longer wanderv in happy idleness about Paris, but is a repining attendant in the ante-chambers of ministers His loyalty has evaporated with his gayety, he screws his month when the Bourbons are mentioned, and even shrugs his shoulders when be hears the praise of the king. In a word he ia one of the many philosophers undone by the law of indemnity, and his case is des perate. for I doubt whether even another reverse of fortune, which should restore him to poverty, could make him again a h*;>py man. A L%goa*d Errand Bot.?During the year 1835, a young man, who had not attained the years of majority, left his home in Oldham county, to make a business visit to this city. Among other cnands he was requested to execute, was the purchase of a kox of cheese for a lady friend who resided in the neighborhood of his father. Arriving in Louisville, the young man became impressed with a no tion of wandering: so he pushed on to the West. In that remote section of the country he grew up to manhood, and in all the long years never visited his Ken tucky home. Ou Saturday last, however, Jie errand boy. now a middle-aged gen tleman, arrived here, after in absenoe of twenty years, lie instantly remembered the commission for the purchase of the cheese, that had been entrusted to him. V'^ordingly he purchased the article, and on the afternoon train of cara re turned to the residence of his father, near Jerico station. This return of the wan ittrer will be a suggestive theme for the gossip of the country circles: but nothing will give rise to pleasauter thoughts than th ? recollection of the lady'* errand, and its faithful execution, although after a la:>*cof twenty years.?lxmxsvUU C*tr ur.

Well, we like short names, and then, you know, "Lizzie'' and Hattie" arc so familiar and endearing. MOVEMENTS OF OCEAN STEAMERS. .Vj tnt. Lear* For Day*.
