A SCENE AT MALMAISON From an interesting article on the assooia tiofcs connected with Malmaison, where Jo sephine held her Court in her palmy and happy days?which articls we find |in the London New Monthly?we lake the following graphic ally related anecdote : Sometimes things did not go on quite no fmoothly, however, at Malmaison, when any of tho Bonaparte family visited Josephine, for a most cordial hatred seems to have existed between her and the ladies of the imperial family, partaking somewhat of female rivalry and jealousy. One evening in particular?when the beau tiful Pauline was to be formally presented to Josephine, on her marriage with the Prince Borgbese?must be noted in the annuls of Malinaison. Pauline, clever, witty, and most lovely, had acoepted the hand of the Borghese, almost a fool in intellect, solely on account of his money and his title, Sacrificing her heart to her ambition, she determined to make the first use cf her new honor? by endeavoring to humiliate poor Josephine; and in order to carrv out tnis amiable resolution, announced her intention of visiting heron a certain even ing shortly after her marriage. Days were passed in preparing the splendid toilette which was to crush her sister-in-law. At length the memorable evening arrived Josephine, fully aware of the intentions of Pauline, took her own measures accordingly She arrayed herself for this trying ordeal, of a graceful against a beautiful wom?M. with consummate tact and a perfect knowledge of that peculiar style of dress well catculatod to display her faultless shape, which she has al most immortalized 6he wore a white muslin dresi edged and trimmed with a narrow bor der of gold; the short sleeves, which displayed a finely turned arm, were looped up at the shoulder by large cameos; an enameled str- I pent encircled her throat; on har head was a kind of a diadem formed of cameos and en amel, confining her hair somewhat in the style ot' the antique busts of the Roman empresses | She looked so extremely graceful and classical in this attire, that wh*n Napoleon entered the a a I on he was delighted, and saluted her with a kiss on the shoulder?a somewhat lourgnut caress by the wny. On his expressing his sur prise at the care with which she was dressed, she remindel him of the expected visit ui Pauline. The evening wo;o on and yet th? Prineesa did not appear. Napoleon having remained beyond his usual t.me, retired at last to his cabinet. Shortly afterwards the Princess made her appearand, looking transcendently lovely hut cn this occasion she had not tiustei to the charm j of unadorned beauty, a? she liter ally was resplendent with jewels. Her dress, Composed of groen velvet, was embroidered in the front with masses of diamonds; her arms, her neck, her head were also enrrc'.ed with splendid jewels. As she advanced across the room towards Josephine, who, as the wile of the First Consul, did not rise until she cp proached, Pauline gated around full of pride and gratified vanity, conscious of the effect created by her beauty, her youth and her daz zling splendor. The salutations were cold between the rival ladies. Pauline seated herself, and to break the stiffness of the reception, began conversing in a low tone withM iau Junot, who was placed near her Well, Louise, how do I look to-night ? What do you think of the Borghefe jewels 7' Think! why, you aro wonderful- actually thloitttiante" returned M me Jnno*. ' But do you really, now?flattory apart? tbir-k this dress becomes me?'' *? Vain Pauline ! why you knew pe.fectiy before asking me that question ycu never looked better in your life.*' " Well, it is not exactly vanity that makes me ask you so particularly," replied Pauline; (i but it is because I want to astonish M me Bonapart\ aud you know I have spared no pains to mortify her by this display of my new jewels. Yet how eiegant she looks in that simple India muslin dress, with those camecs, too, like a Grecian statue ; she certainly does understand, to perfection, the style that suits her- That white dress contrasts so well, too, with the blue satin of the furniture?it is per fect Good heavens ! what shall I do?" she suddenly exclaimed in an agonized whisper, and turned quite pale. " What is it! What can be the matter *' asked M'me Junot, quite alarmed. " 0, Louise, why did you not tell me 7 how cruel not to remind me! To let me coilo here in this room, dressed in green velvet, when the furniture is blue satin. Oh, this ?. too much. I shall never forgive you ! How dreadful I must look by the side of Josephine ! This is in'Te than I can bear I mu^t go away at once " Pauline was conquered. Elegancc had won the day against beauty. She took a hasty iarewell of Josephine, and hurried out of the room, consoling herself a little ia iur retreat, by displaying her jewels before the whole es tablishment assembled to do her honor She passed down the alloy formed by the house hold, preceded by lighted torches, andfjll iw ed L>y her husband, whom she early taught to aspire no higher thau to the honor of being her chamberlain ; and thus ended in ab-olute failure, this notable wedding v sit of the P;in cotes Pauline Borghese.

Pennsylvania, numbering about a baa dred, paid Mr Buchanan a congratulatery visit at Wheatland a few days in roe They were received at his residence, and Mr W?. B Duncan made a brief and felicitous con gratulatory address, to which Mr Bachanan replied at some length. The following sketch of his remarks is given by the Lancaster Ki press: ME BCCHUTAK'S BBPLV. Mr Buchanan said, in reply, that he felt greatly Indebted to his young friends for their visit, lie* bad the assnranco that, at least their congratulations were sinoere, as thay sprung from the warm hearts of youth, which had not yet had time to become corrupted and r.ardenad in the ways of the world. The boeom ol youth was the abode of sinoerity and truth, and it was indeed a pleasure and an honor to receive the warm out pourings of their hearta lie said he had always fait a great eolkitade lor the interests of Franklin and Marshall Collegei, it WAS a noble institution and he was proud to be the President of its Board of Di rectors He was extremely gratified to learn that it had fair proepests. not only of a large number of students, but of great usefulness. It was gratifying to see *o large a number of worthy young men already enrolled on its liet of students lie referred te their responsibil iiy, reminding them that when the present generation had parsed away, and been gath ered to their fathers, on theui, the young men of to-day, w iuld rest the responsibility of forming and administering the future govern ment of the country ana of preserving intact ? ur glorioui Union and Constitution There was not, he said, a young man a-nong them, however humble his position, who inigbt not aspire with an honorable ambition, to ill the bigheot office within the gift of the poop'c but iu order to attain to positions of honor aoi useful; ess and distinction, they mnst remeta l.er that every thing depends upon themselves They must carve out tbeir own future from the opportunities of the present Kind parenta and friends have afforded them rare opportu nities of acquiring that knowledge whica eon stitutel power. It they neglec? or abu?e these opportunities?if they idle away the golden j Louts allotted for the improvement of the mind-if they are not obedient to their p.-o ! fossors in all that relates to the good interest . and success of tjie Institution?then, they i might be assured, they would have cau?e t? repent of their folly through Jong honrs of bitter sorrow in After life?for 'hey could net er retrieve the pax Mr. Buchanan- said he had been a College boy himself, and none of the best of ooys either, being find of fun like thomseives There were many little eooentricities in toe hie ot a College student that might be par doned or overlooked; but there was one habit which, if formed at College or in early youth would cling to tbem in after life and bhgbl the fairest prospects. He referred to the use of intoxicating liquors, and declared it would be better for that youth who contracted an appetite for strong drink that be were dead or had never been born; for when he saw a young man entering upon such a career, a fondness of liquor becoming with him a gov erning passion, he could see nothing before him but a life of sorrow and a dishonored grave in his old i.go. Many lads, he w*.? a ware, considered this practice a mark of smartness, but he regarded it as an o.fienoe thut cannot be pardoned, especially in a stu dent at College ; and he concluded this earn est appeal by expressing the hope and belief tn.it none of thy young men of Franklin and Marshall were addicted to this dao?eroue , piacuce. 6 The speaker then alluded to the course and habits ot study nocessary to insure success in a student s life. Mauy young men prided themselves in running over a great many bx?ks and gaining a superficial knowledge U many branches of science. This was of no practical use. He would urge them to learn thoroughly all they undertook to learn acquire knowledge distinctly?and then they would be able to use it to some practical ad vantage in after life They should apply themselves with diligence to their allotted *u ?* refl#ct ttt night np?n what they had thus acquired, and appropriate it as their best capital with which to in the struggleof life. He had met with many men of prominence who had looked at the indexes of a great many books, and hsd a general smattering of knowledge, but it was all sur face work, and of no practical use He hoped his young friends here present would avoid failing into this error. Mr. Buchanan remarked that his eleotion aai been alluded to, and he might be expect ed to say something on that p,.int. He had been elected to the nigh and responsible office i 1 resident, and he thanked them most sin cerely for their congratulation*; but whether the evont would prove to be a matter of con gratulation time alone ouuld determine.?

I nless this be done, the time ujay come when there sectional animosities which now unhappily exist may break up the fairest and most perfect form of government the sun ever shone upon But be trusted that the same Power which had watched over and pre - served us in the past will continue to smile upon us, and make us a prosperous, united and huppy people. in conclusion, he said that if he could in any degree be the honored instrument of al laying this sectional excitement and restoring the Government to the principles and poliav ot the fathers, he would then feel that he hvi not assumed the arduous duties of the office in vain. At the conclusion of Mr Buchanan's re marks, of which we have given but a rapid outline,this guests retired ei?ch one reoeivin,; m cordial shake of the hand. Alter th?y hid re formed iu the order of proceciion, "three cheers were proposed and given for the Presi dent of the B^ard of franklin and Marshall College and the President e.eet of the United States. Franklin had a capital method of de ciding difficult questions He took a sheet of paper, ruled a line down the middle in red ink, and then entered ou either side the argu meats, pro and con. This paper he kept on his writing talde for several (lays. and when any new argument presented itself to him. ho wrote it immediately in its appropriate pla-e. When he tound that no more reasons sug gested themselves; that the subject, so far a" his capacity and facts wen', appeared to be exhausted, he be^an the labor of sifting this mass If he found an argument iu one ool. u on, balanced by another, in the opposite, he struck both off "If he foond one that it to- k two to balanae it, he erased two on one side, and one on the other. By this preceai he finally found himself with no argument# left iu one oolumn, or with but a few. and these greatly ^proportioned to those in the other IJv aiopting this method, on all diffiealt aid important occasions, he acquired that repu a tion f>r soundness and judgment, in which he has no rival, either among our revolutionary feges or their successors, except in Washing ton aloae.
