CLIP - The history of Napoleon has often been written his enemies. This narrative is from the pen of one who reveres and loves the Emperor. The writer admires Napoleon because he abhorred war, and did everything in his power to avert that dire calamity ; because he merited the sovereignty to which 'he suffr ages of a grateful nation elevated him ; because he consecrated the most extraordinary energies ever conferred upon a mortal to promote the prosperity of his country ; because he was regardless of luxury, and cheerfully endured all toil and all hardships that lie might elevate and bless the masses of man- kind ; because he had a high sense of honour, revered religion, respected the rights of con- science, and nobly advocated equality of privileges and the universal brotherhood of man. Such was the a tr ue character of Napoleon Bonaparte. The narrative contained in these pages is offered as a demonstration of the truth of this assertion. The world has been bewildered by the contradictory views which have been presented of Napoleon. Hostile historians have stigmatized him as a usurper, while admitting that the suffrages of the nation placed him on the throne ; they have denounced him a ty rant inexorable as Nero, while admitting that he won the adoring love of his subjects ; he is called a bloodthirsty monster, delighting in war, yet it is confessed that he was, in almost every conflict, struggling in self-defense and imploring peace ; it is said that his insatiable ambition led him to trample remorselessly upon the rights of other nations, while it is confessed that Europe was astonished by his moderation and generosity in every treaty which he made with his vanquished foes ; he is desc ribed as a human butcher, reckless of suffering, who regarded his soldiers merely as food for powder, and yet, on the same page, we are told that lie wept river' the carnage of the battle-field, tenderly pressed the hand of the dying, and won from those soldiers who laid down their lives in his service a fervor of love which earth has never seer, paralleled; it is recorded that France at last became weary of him and drove him from the throne, and in the next paragraph we are in- formed that, as soon as the bayonets of the Allies had disappeared then France, the whole nation rose to call him back from his exile, with unanimity so unprecedented, that without the shed- ding one drop of blood he traversed the whole of France, entered Paris, and rescinded the throne ; it is affirmed that a second time France, weary of his despotism, expelled him, and yet it is at the same time recorded that this same France demanded of his executioners his beloved remains, received them with national enthusiasm, consigned them to a tomb in the very bosom of its capital, and has reared over them such a mausoleum as honours the grave of no other mortal.
