I * \ T , t ?* t r T* i n > 1 ^ ^ i A K. ^ roBTUsis of a r .?voa ausm*. , Th?re dwelt at Orleans, some forty or fifty years ago, a worthy young couple named Jtane and Marie Lejeune. They were poor in worldly goods, bnt rich in the joyousness and insouciance of a youthful life. A* tine went on, they became wealthy in son* also: but those were not destined to be the stay of their parents in advancing life, for .is each one cf them grew up to manhdod, he found himself, cither from choice or necessity, enrolled in the service of Napoleon the Great. One only toy remained to cheer the parental home. lie was still a child. aiid a darling of his mother, who fondly hoped to keep hitu always by her side, and with this view she labored hard to instil into his mtnl a love of peace and hatred of war. Y:iin, however, were poor Marie's endeavors for Francois, even in his earliest boyhood, listened with avidity 0 tales of war and glory : and when the note of preparation sounded throughout Fiance for the great Russian campaign, lis imagination became so inflamed by a love of military adventure, that he flmtg himself into tho vor.ex of that gigantic enterprise, and s ?on fuuud himseif in the midst o the grande arinee, serving a. iruuiuitr in a distinguished regiment. The position of Francois, was not, truljf a very distinguished one, but be already regarded him elt as a hero; for did he n<>t serre 441'Kmpereur," and wash" not ne of tl e grande armee by whom Riis si a wa9 to be overrun and conquered ? Now and then a thought or a sigh wouU. be given ti his good mother, who had wept so bitterly at his departure; ' u he was a gay, light-hearted boy, an?i sc n ' ecame a favorite of his comrndcs so that each graver ihougbtquickly van ished from lis tu;i:d, audi iii dreamt only of the glories that lay before him. On tue entry >f the French in*X)'Ios co w, no cue lie Id his head Lighcr than Franc ois Lejeune, and he beat his drum with an air of a8*- much importance as if the success of the whole expedition de T)cn id on the flourish of ihc drum sticks. But now a new leaf in the pages of his life was ah ut to be opened. Mos cow war- burnt, and the French army Ikgan its disa.'tivus retreat amid all the \!'.nc.troencie;? of a *tu?stan winter. Fran \ cois was obliged , like his comrades, tr | set out on his homeward way amid [the coit.bined miseries of war, famine, i;ui<J ice. Ills lingers soon lost their power; his arum became silent.; and before lie reachcd Smolensk, thi* f&voritt com {anion of his march h-d dropped from his hands and sank ir:to tl?e wintry enow. At Smolensk our hero's strength failed him; and, pinched alike with cold and hunger, he fell o r of the ranks, and was made prisoner bv seme Rusian serfs, ? V who shut him up in a dreary mill, where | he lay more dead than alive during a | night of intense cold. He was aroused 1 from this state of torpor on the following ' morning by finding himself once more in the clutchea of his barbarous captors, who dragged him along a causeway, one side of which was bordered by a frozen river. Some of the parly began to dig a hole in the ice, while others gave him to undwrs.and, by very intelligible signs, that it w as intended for his accommoda tion. The terrified youth besought them to spare him, a: d asked their pity for his mother's sake?" so tender a mother that fhe would break her heart if he did not return to her.'- This piteous appeal had no effect upon the peasants, who, of course, did not understand a single word of what he was baying. Some iaughod at the strangeness of his language : tiorae mimicked his impassioned gestures; and one o? them had just collared the unhap py Francois, with the intention of plun ging him iato the river, when suddenly was heard the merry tinkling of bells, and there came dashing along the cause way a handsome sleigh, drawn by three beautiful little Viatkru horses. Seated in the sleigh, wiapt up in costly furs, was a stout, hale-looking gentleman 4- What are you about there, my chil dren ?" inquired he of the serfs. 14 We are only drowning a French man." 44 Oh ! is that all ?" reioined he. t4 Monsieur, monsieur . cried the un happy drummer, as he struggled to free himself from the hands of the serfs. 44 Very fine, ini eed!" muttered the fur-clad gentleman, in an angry and su percilious tone. 44 Very fine, indeed ! Here is a fellow who comes among us to do all the mischief he can?sets fire to Moscow ; tears down the cross from the cupola ol Ivan the Great; and now, for sooth, it is ? Alossie?Mossie.' Ah, ha ! we are crest-fallen nuw ; but death and destruction to the scoundrels ! Come, let us get on, Filka," continued he a< dry ing his coachman, and throwing himself back in his comfortable seat. A touch of the whip is given, and the fiery little steeds are daiting forward, when suddeuly some new thought seems to have occurred to the nobleman, who calls out, 44 Stop, Kilka." 44 Pray, sir, do you understand mu sic ?" inquired he in Russian of the trem bling drummer. 44 Sauvez moi, mon bon monsieur, sau vez moi! " cried cut Lejeune in an agony of terror, as he felt that his existence was hanging as by a slender thread upon the good oflices ot the stranger. 44 Hood heavens! wha strange people these French are! " observed the noble man. 44 Half a million of them have come into Russia, and not one of them can, I believe, speak a word of our lan guage?the barbarians ! ?' And then turning with an air of self-complateccy and conscious superiority to Lvjeane:? '?Meousique, meousique, save, meouai que, vous i Eh bienn, respondonn vous, frannce! sur forte-piano, ioue, save ? " At any other time.

I will play all day and all night too, for yoa, if yoa please " 44 Well, yon may thank your stars for it!" said ths gentleman, lauphing. i 44 Cot?e, children, let him go. There ! I give you twenty kopecks to drink." 44 Thank you, sir: there he is for yoa." ?k o saving, they loosed their hold upon poor Ltjeune, who, on finding hituseif safe in the sleigh, was so bewildered with joy, that he laughed and cried, and bowed, and smiled to all around him. His gratitude was so expansive, that he not only thanked the nobleman, but also the coachman, and the very mouiiks, too, who had been on the point of drowning him fir? minutes before. A moment ni-ro, and he found himself whirling along by the side of his preserver, who, ob -jnring that he was quite blue and shrivelled with cold, kindly wrapped a far mantle round him. In a nhort timo t 'ley (Hew up before a large hou^e, and were received at the door by several ser vants, to who*e care Francois wan con signed They conducted him into a warm apartment chafed his ha'f-froxen iml>?. and cloihed h;m in a suit of com fortable rarmerts.

Lej.une obeyed, and soon found him self in the presence of tw> y unc ladies, ??

Poor Francois was nearly at his wits* end on receiving this command ; for the irum was; his only insti ument, and never in his life had he even touched i piano t'orte. However, he felt that li s life was propably hanging on the result of this moment, and so assuming an air of con fidence, and bowing low to the ladies, he seated himself before the instrument. At first ha placed his hands gently upon ?t, pnd moving his fingers like drum sticks in time with some favorite regi mental air, he l)egan to hum the tune, .vhile he swayed his head and body from right to left, and with all the importance of a firs .-rate professor, lie was wont in after life to describe the whole scene very humorously. 441 expected every moment," he said, 44 that ray preserver would have caPed in a couple lackeys, andoi4ered them to pitch me out into the suow ; but on casting a furtive glance Lowards them, I perceived that he was nodding significantly towards his daugh ters, a; if to make them remark what a treasure he had procured for them ; so I took courage, struck the instrument boldly, sang my song more emphatically and ?.ook still greater airs upon myself: whereupon the worthy gentleman clapped his hands v?ith delight, cried out bravo, and in a few minutes came over, and familiarly on the shoulder saying: 44Tre bienn, tre b enne je vois que vous save ; vous aile couche alle " Never was an order more readily obeyed ; for poor Francois was worn out with fatigue and excitement, so that he needed not to 44 woo soft slumbers to his drooping lids." About a fortnight afterwards Lejeune's patron received a visit from a nobleman of higher rank than himself, a man of tal ent and education, who took so great a fancy to the young drummer, that be asked his host if he would consent to yield hiai to his protection. This was grant ed ; and Ltjeune now found himself placed under very favcrabl e circumstances, for his new friend not only treated him kindly, but gave him a good education. Sjme years later, he married him to a young lady, a protege of his wife, and the marriage proved a prosperous and , happy one. accordance with the desire of his patron, entered the Rus sian service, and through the influence of this nobleman he acquired personal, and subsequently hereditary nobility. In after life, he became allied by the mar riage of his only daughter with a dis tinguished nobleman named Lebysaheif, who was high in power in the government of Orel; and Tor the sake of being neai his child, whom he tenderly lo\ed, Fran cois Lejeune?or, as he was now called, Franz ivanovitch Lejeune?came to reside - iu that part of the country- It was here we first met him and made his acquaint ance. We remember him well?a lively, courteous little man, with dark eyes and gray hair. His usual attire was a black velvet surtcut. Most probably the ci-devant French drummer still dwells in the far east of Russia, among his adopted countrymen ; but when he hears of the gallant deeds of his true compatriotcs upon the heights of S.bastopol, who knows but that his spirit may be chafing beneath the bon dage of Russian despotism, and that he may long to find himself once more serv ing under a name he had once revered and idulis :d?L Empereur Napoleon.
