Lafon. the bri liant juung tragedian of the Comedie Frar jcaise, was one of her first lovers This cor nection became public then, and has becom historical since Bonaparte soon formed the plan of repress ing the insurrection of the blacks in St Do mingo. An immense fleet was formed, c which Villaret Joyeusa was made admiral Leclerc obtaining the appointment of genera! in-chief, with thirty-five thousand picked me under his command. Pauline was surprise' and alarmed at receiving a requisition?no from her husband, for that she wonld hav treated with derision?but from her brother to accompany the General upon his expedi tion. Leclerc himself would gladly have dis per.scd with the society of his faithless an capricious, though beautiful, wile But th< First Consul dreaded the possible reaodi which her conduct would occasion, if lef al^ne, and accordingly insisted upon her fol lowing her legul guardian to tho tropics '? (Hod hoavens ! ' she said to Madame Junot " how can my brother be so hard-hearted and wicked Me to send me into exile among sav ages and serponta Beside?, 1 3in ill., and I shall die before I get tbero " The spoiled child here sobbed with ru-h violence, thai Madamo Junot knew of but one means of con solalion. She accordingly took her by tin hand, ar.d told her tlf-.t she would be queen of the island, and would ride in a palanquin that slavos would watch her looks ana exe cute her wishes, that she would walk in grove; of oraugc trees, arrayed in the bright colors of a Creole costume By thi? time. Paulino's hysterics had entire ly ceased. " And do y?.u really think, Lau retta, that I shall look prettier than uBual in a Creole turban, a short waist, aud a skirt of striped UiU>lin?" She then sent for a pack age of bandanna handkerchiefs, one of whi:h M.idaine Junot fantastically knotted her hair lier delight was unbounded when fclin fouud that the country where she had expected to be devoured, might be the c,e?o of new tri umphs in the toi:et, and afforded her an oc casion fjj innovations in faebion. uOh' those lovely mountains," she exclaimed, *? we will havo a fete every day, and a ball every night." While the General was organising hi? fleet, Pauline waspreparing her wardrobe.

The expedition was disastrous in every sen'o. Gen. Leclerc proved totally incompe tent, and the tplcndid army under his com mand was wc'.l nigh destroyed by batile and fever. The General died of a lingering dis ea-e, and Pauline cansed his body to he em balmed and placed in a triple cdar Cvffin. In this c< IBn she concealod htr jewels and treas ures, ^nd embarked with them on board tho aifiiure, homeward bound. She returned to France in a costume very different from that in which sho set out?she went in bandanna and returned in black. On reaching Paris she g ive way to paroxysm of grief snd despair, which seemed too ostenta tious to be tincere She even cropped her luxuriant hair, and for a time refused to be comforted Society doubted the rcali'y of her affliction, while Napoleon operly scoffcd tit 4* Has Pauline cut iff her bnir?"he asked '' Then it is because she knows it ill grow again, richer and thicker than ver. ' Napoleon desired that she should wear hor weeds with propriety, and consequently placed her under the care of his brother Joseph and his wife, lier inclination for retirement did not last long, and eho reproached Napoleon ehemently for keeping her in confinement.

To this, Gen Junot, ho was present, replied that he had often heard of the Venus de Medici, of the Venus \nadjoiuene, but never of a Vouus Suicide. This comparisr n revived the disconsolate beau ty. and she requested her former suiter to come and see her frequently. In 1803, Bonaparte's plans for making him self Emperor were nearly completed. An op ortunity now occurred of accustoming tho reneh to princely honors and titles in his family Don Camillo Borghese, the heir to the finest villa, palrce and pi-*ture-g llery in Italy, the representative of one of the most llu?ttiou< Italian families bjiog compelled to leave Heme for political reasons visited Paris and was presented to Bonaparte The latter conceived an affection for him, made him a French citizen and Maj >r if a mounted regiment in the Consular Guard, and speedily arranged a match between him and Madame Leclerc. The prince was under the middle site; his countenance was handsome, but with out expression His education bad been much negleoted, and hi* principal accomplishments were those of a skilful swordsman and an ex perienced jockey. The marriage took place on the 6:h of November, 1803 Pauline was thus the first of Bonaparte's family to wear a coronet The faubeurg St. Germain smiied and said, "Well, one of them is a real prin cess after all." . .
