Cardinal de Kiehelica hn< always been eon -icJered a minister, and on some accounts lie well derived the name. He rendered an immense service to monarchy, in di*p?tchii.K he last heads of the feudal hydra, and litera ture owe* him much for the establiabment of the French Academy. Although hi m*e If but an indifferent writer, he was ever ready to en courage the arts, and paid liberally for the cffjrts of others. The Cardinal, however, c< uld not eudure that his act- should be made tlie subject 0f comment, particularly since seine ol the in were of a character not calcu lated to elicit very warm commendation from lovers of morality. The more powerful, in deed, occasionally indulged in freedom of s|M?ech; but woe to the humblo individna' that was indiscreet enough to publiclv tiud f^u!t with the peccadilloes of his Eminence. V\ ith such ho had a summary way of privately dealing, which effectually closed their hi., in the future. 1 Dumont, a small merchant of*ho Hue St. Dtiui?, received one morning a letter, dated Kueil, a little village on the outskirts ul Paris, where the Cardinal had a country seal. Ibis letter c attained ati invitation to .-upp^r .or the next day with his Eminence. il Du re ?nt coild not believe hi* eves; he read the letter several timen. looked at the direction. i.j;d finally concluded th:<t he n.uat indeed be iho person ft? whom it was addrcs .d Auiaicd beyond expression, he callcd his wife Hnd oauxhters t . communicate to them his g???l fortune. Vou may imagine toe joy and pride of the three women! About four o\l?ck he mounted hi? h >rae, >rd started for Kueil. Ha had scaroc passed the suburbs, when the clouds assumed a threa tening look, and the sound of distant thuuder u nouiccd th? approach of a >i<dent storm. Toe n-erchint, having nejlrctcd to proiidc uiwsclf wi n a cloak, d?ubl< d :hc speed rf his horse. But the storm traveled fatter than his steed; flashed of lightning succeeded each other with frigl-'fu1 rapidity, and the rain i'eii in torrrr.ta Assailed by the t? mpest, oui hero put his horse to the gallop ; but at length in able to continue his journey, he gt jpt-d at a small tavern in Mouterre. Hs alighted, sent his horse to the stable, and took refuge in a 1"W ro m. where the servants lighted ablat ing fire to dry his clothes. While he was warming himself the door "pened and another person, drenched with rain, entered and Seated himself in the opposite corner. ?*e two trav lets looked at each otller for t:ma in silence. At la*t M Dupont al dressed his companion with the Wonts: " What desteetable weather ?'"* ' it is very l>ad, iudcod." replied the stran ger ; " but it is only a shower, which, I hoi>e, will soon pa-s over. "Hear,' continued M Dunv>rt; "the slot in increases, peals of thunder shake the house; the rain fails in terrcnts, and vet I must go on." * "Sir," said the unknown, " it must be im portant bu-incsa th*tcan induce y >u to pro ceed on your journey in th s weather." '? It is iudcod," said Dum mt; " I will U 11 you, it is no secret I ?m invited to a sup per, this t venii g. rrith the C.trdiual de Uiche iiju." " Ah ! I know it is a difficult matter to de cline *u?'h an iuvltatiou. B -. jou have f till a !ong way to f-o, and h wenr y u prewntyou' v'cit beiore h?- Imminence iu tno state m which you now are ?" " I?;s inence will, perhaps, appreciate my ?agernes3 to accept his kind invitation. ?? If I did not fear to be indi?cre?t, I would ask you if you ever had auythinc to do with the Cs-dinal ??' "Nothing -it all. I inu*t even say that I Ci:nuot account for the favor which 1 have re ceived." ?' The Cardinal is every way jealous of hie iiutht riiy; he does not like to nave his actions judged. One word is suflicient to excite sus picion; ihiuk well, liave you never given nis Eminence any cause for complaint against you ?" ? I think not. I have l?oen constantly oc cupied with my business. 1 have no interest in what they call politics, However, I be lieve that, before two or three friends only. 1 censured the death of the i>nkcof Montmoren cy, and you would have done the oauie had your gr ludfathi r been the ate-vard of that il lustrious noble." ^ " My dear .dr. you look lik? an honest man. You have inspired me with much interest for you; will you listen to mo then * Do not eo to Hueil." "Not go to Rucil ? I shall set out this in stant, in spite of the storm." " One word moro, my friend, for yuur po sition interests tne exceedingly; y ?n really oe lieve tbat the Cardinal is exp.*oting you to supper ? Well, let me undeceive you. You are expected, it is tru^?but to be hung." "0. mcreit'ul heaven' what do you tncao ? It is impossible." " I t'.ll you ugain," said the stranger, u to be bung!" At thesj word*. Dumont, shuddering with toir?)r, drew himsell near to the unkoown. " For heaven's sake, how do you know ?" " 1 am sure of it." " But what have I dono to deserve such a fato ?" " I don't know; but I am 8urc of what I say, for I am the one who has been sent for to hamr you." The poor merchant, pale as a corpse, drew back several steps, and scarcely able to speak, said : " Pray tell ine, air, who are you ?" " The hangman of Parid, cabled by his Erui nonco to dispatch you. Think of the ser vice I have rendered y<?u, and remember that the least indiscretion cu your part will prove my ruin." The merchant remounted his horse without w. iting for the storm to abate; i:nd, drenched to the bone, ho reached Pari^ Instead of re pairing to his own house, he sought shelter with an old friend, to whom he related hie ad venture and wonderful escape. With tt e aid of money he obtained a passpert. under a false name; and, well disguised, started for Eng land. There he remained till the death of the Cardinal, which occurred two years after. Gkwtkki. Professions.? Nuw-a-days, pa rents entertain a silly notion that their chil dren must be instruuted in a genteel profes sion; they repudiate the "vulgar" notion of bringing a boy up as a carpenter, cabinet-ma ker, ahipwrigtot, or iu fact, any oecupation that involves labor. He must be educated fur the church, the bar, the law, or for the post of civil engineer?hence, those professions ure over-run, and hundreds, nay, thousands of youug men are a burthen upon their families, being unable to find anything to do. Copyitt". as a cla.-s, arc badly paid for their services; but as theirs is a mechanical occupation, re quiting little exoercise of the mind, it cannot reasonably be expected that they should re eeive the wages of any skillful mechanic, (len tcel proiession8. in a few years, will not be nought after bv fathers and mother for their sons, i.s a good investment for the capital ex pended upon their education.

From Uiii proceeds the 44 pennant," which is a oord about twioc the sise, aud is about three feet is length. To the lower end of the pennant, aud attached to it by a small oopper swivel, is the 44craft." which is a -real! stont oortl nbout two-and-a-half feet In length, having three stripes of whalebone laid around it at the middle, where it is attached to tbe swivel of the peuuant.
