The t-ilenl's and Cliar..c(er of Bonaparte mnst be analysed fa be nnderslooil. There is so much of the great and of the litlie. of tile sjder.tlitl and mt*3n, of knowledge and ignor nnice, that no true idea tan be formed from a geweral view ; ihe v^iiuns talents anil trails of cliaractt-r must be vieived �nd eKamiiied separately, which is what is done in this Analysis. Bonaparlp does nut appear lo have heeu Ihe grfule.'st of Iht French Generals nor Slaleoinen, but he imiled in himself a greater variity of talents than perhaps any man that ever existed ; and these talents, exerted in trouhlesnine times, with a perseverance, energy, and audacity, of which there is no example, led to (lie wonderful success of that extraordi-naiy man.

It never felt the master-touch of bira who, though pleased with tlie titles of Charle-magne and Caeiar, came not to the capitol to be crotviied, nor to St. Peter's to be consecrated. Boiiaparte, who twice conquered Italy, never saw Rome !-a fact that belongs to the series of incongruities which made up his character and rortunes. Whatever colour of reform, or feature of change, may be found in tbe circles of Rorpan society, ;be-loiigg almost exclusively to the- citladini of^he best description, including persons of liberal ^fo-fessiori, artists, some of the em/j/o^e'*, and the mer-canlidi campagiia, or gentlemen fanners or agriculturists, landed properly has grown out of the sale of the church estates during the revolution ; and who, though chiefiy resident at Rome, live by the produce of their farms, in various parts of the Roman states. If something of cleanliness utid order is visible in a Romnn minage, if stairs are (baud lighted (I) at night, and rooms look not dirliy by day, the imiovaliou on ancient manners is only to be found in the dwellingii of this respectable'class (2). It is in this class also that what little social intercourse is kept up at Rome is most frequent; and I take it on tbe word of persons who had better opportunities of judging from observa-tioH than myself, that among this class, almost exclusively, inay be found the liberal principles arid enlightened views, to diffused i�> the other capital jBittes of Italy, aoioitg all pfilern.! It was this cltfss itiit chiefly participated in "ife beni^|i*of the recent changes ; and they look back ttrme past with a regret in which personal interests and self-love may have no inconsiderable influence. 1 remember a cockney dame of Rome, on whom we chanced to light, who loved to speak of her iiititnacy with the great during the days of republican equality, always calling the Prince B*** " C'amillo," and the Duchei'S de L*** " La Margarita," usually adding, " fur thus tee called each other in the time of our liepublie!" " While the Roman shopkeeper (who lolls and louni^es in his bulk (3) all day, and asks a price a capriccio for his French ami IJritish wares) seeks his recreation at the Palicorda or the comic ojiera- while the inferior dealer knows no enjoyment beyond stuffing, with twenty others, iiiio a hired 0 I "calesh, on Sunday noons, and driving thro\igli the hot and dirty streets, " per fare il piszacarolo"- the cittadini-have more refined sources of recreation : they hold a musical actrademia in each other's houses, or assemble to assist at a Tragedia alia Tavola" (the reading round a table some favourite trajjedy of Alfieri or Monti) ; or if of the higher orxlev, they attend ibe conversazione of some Mezza Oama, or Italf lady ; a class of provincial nobility, who come Irom ihe cities of La.M�fca, or the Legations-, to pass the winter at Rnme, and tvlio, if permitted by courtesy to vi.sit a Signora Princi-pessa, are . never presumed to be of her circle, nor admitted to the house of such adibassadors as rightly understand the true Roman " dignild J" Two of tlie loveliest and most highly-gifted women in Italy were not invited to iVl. Blacas's weekly soiries, because they were only by birth Mezza-nofci/e, or ffhat in England is c.illed gentry. " Apart from the great ii?ass of ihe population,separated by the distinctioiisof ages, foul and fatuous as un Indihii fikeer, aiid 8�ok in the dusky niche of its splendid sty, vegetates the Roman patrician, (ir prince of the empire ! tli.e inorning is lounged away by the heir of the Gregories atid the Clements ill a dtisly great coat (the modern Roman logH), rarely changed at any season of the day for a better garb. An early, but not a princely, dinner follows; succeeded by the siesta and- the Corso, a funereal drive in a long narrow street, relieved in summer by a splashy course in the Piaz?a Navona(4). The prima se4a is passed in some noble palace, where, at the end of a long suite of uiilighted (1) Wi(h tlie exceptions of the diplomatic palaces, and Ihiise occupied by Ihe English and the Bnuapartes, 1 do not erer reini'mber to have seen the couit or stairs of a Roman pahiee lighled ; even Ihe laquais of the Cardinals carry il little lantern, with which they light up I heir-Eminences, and the custom is universal. Thoee who visit without servants, curry their own lanterns, which they extinguish and leave in the ante-ioom, while they pay theirprima-sera visit. (-2) The private houses of Rome, which are small and ill-hnill, are railed Sixtus Quiulus's houses, and were princi-pilly built by him. (3) The genuine Roman shop is a sort of open stall, wilhont glass windows; precisely resembling those which slid exist at Pompeii. Tlie shops in the Ciirso, the Bond-alreet of liome, are modernized, and since the French occupation, filled with all sorts of French merchandise, \�hich indeed supplies all Italy. (4) Before the Roman nobility are expelled by the malaria from Rome, for a short tinie, to their villas, one of Ihe favourite recrealions is driving iu the Piaiza Navona (which is laid under water fur the occasioji), and eating tigs and Bologna puddings (illcd with garlic: curious " spurt for ladies." e^iues as minds without activity or resoirr�(5'i be supposed \o supply ;-ii sermon of the pof preacher, Padfe Pacifico, if it he Lent; a C'ei^ ^ faithless or betrayed, tf-ai the Carnlyal, fill ii^W^ time, till the opera commenctis; or until tlie^'tf?|y two genuine.

There have been as many .Tpplicalions at the 1)0X-office for ploces on the niiiht of the King's presence at the iheatfe, as would fill tiie house tweiity times. (5) The circle of Sijnore Torlonia, the banker {Duke of Bracciano), is so truly European, and so made up of persons fronrall quariers nf. the globe, that it would be a libel lo call it a Roman house. His hospitality is wilhont bounds, and his attention to British subiects deserves their warmest gratitude. The Duchess di Bracciano holds weekly assemblies, which, resemble ao English rout. Signore Torlonia is the only-Roman Gentleman who purchases the works of modern artists. In his superb palace in the Piazza di Venezia, tbe walls and ceilings are covered nith the exquisile designs of Palaggi of Milan, and Cainueci; and the grand salon contains that powerful effort of Canova's genius, which refutes Iheiiisidiuus praise lhai he should work only for the Graces- bis Hercules and. Liebas. Si;nore Torlonia is the founder of bis own fortunes; his title is a purchase. (6)^The Duchess of Devonshire, though a permanent resident in .

(7) Shortly after Bonaparte's elevation to tbe Imperial Ihroue, meeting bis mother in the gardens of St. Cloud, half playfully, half sei-iously, he held his hand to her to kiss. She flung it back indignantly, and presenting her own in the presence of bis sitile, said, " C'est a. vous d baiser la main de celle qui vous a donne la vie." We observed the pictures of all her haod.some children in tbe room she occupied (and where we generally found her spinning, wiih her prayer-book beside her); there were four of Ihem Kings when they sat for her, with Ihe, Emperor, their brother, at their head; viz. the Kings of Spain, Holland, Westphalia, and Naples (her sonin law Murat). " You see," she said, one day as I was lookiug on Napoleon's picture; " when my sou Bonaparte sat for me, 1 made him lay aside bis crown." Which was the ease. IRELAND. 15. DUBLIN, AUGUST FROM THE DUBLIN GAZETTE. J.ord C/inmberlain's Office, Dublin Castle, August 14, 182X. Tfoliee is lierehy given, that his Majesty will hold a public Levee at the Castle, on .Monday, Ihe 2flth instant, atone o'clock. And bis Majesty will also hold a drawing-room at the Castle, on Tuesday evening, the21st, at nine o'clock. N.B.-Is is not expected by his Majesty that persons shall appear in mourning on the day of his public entry into Dublin, nor on any of tbe diiys of public ceremonies or frslivi-ties which may take place during the period of his Majesty's residence in Ireland. EXCISE DINNER IN CELEBRATION OF THE KING'S BIRTH-DAY. On Monday there was a must splendid eni^rtain-meiit in compliment to the King's Birth-day. Tiie dinner was served up in Morrts-oii's best sivle.- The company consisted of the Chief ComrrttRsioneis of Excise, the Collectors of several Cdunties, Surveyors-General, and the heads of the priucipnl Excise Offices, &c. Mr. Hawthorne presided, and Mr. Therry acted MS \ice-President. Lord Donooghmore, Mr. H. D. Grady, and Mr. Leslie Foster, were among the guests. On Lord Donoughmore's health being most cordially drank, the Noble E-arl rose, and with much feeKiig expressed his grateful sense of the comiiliment conferred upon him. The present assembly brought to his mind tlie most delightfal recollections of the most happy period of his life-the period duiintr which he presided over the Board of E.vcise. He saw many around him, whose friendship and ivhose zeal powerfully co-operated with his exertions to render whatever services miglit have bfeen done to the Excise at that period. He rejoiced t" see the charge of that impovt-jnt trust devolve upon men of such experience, ability,-and efficiency; and he concluded by pronouncing a very handsome and well-merited eulogy on i\lr. Hawlhorne, for the nmny signal services that had been rendered to the Excise since his appointment to office. His Majesty, we rejoice lo stale, snifers no inconvenience after his long �ea voyaije. He has remained in gre-at privacy in the Park, and in the company only of a very few personal friends. Ic is very generally supposed that his Majesty will make iiis public entrance into the city of Dublin, on Fridny. The prooesssion will be similar to that intended to have taken place, had his Majesty been able to carry his original intention of Uinding at Dunleary into effect. It is supposed hia Majesty will leave tlie Paik about one o'clock, and will proceed from thence by the circular road, through Eccles-slreet, Hardwicke-place, Teinple-street, Gardiner's-rbw, Great Den-niark-slr(^i-l, into Rutland-square, along Cavendish-row, Sackville-street, Westmoiland-street, College-, green, and Dame-slreet, to the Castle. At that part of Cavendish-row, adjoining the Rotunda, which forms the confines of tbe city and county of Dublin, b barrier will he erected, and u splendid triumphal arch raised, beneath which his Majesty will receive the Lord Mayor, the Recorder, Sheriffs, Board^of Aldermen, and Common Council, by the former ol whom he will he prtsenied with the keys of the city, which having returned, he will pass the barrier, and the procession will proceed. His Majesty will be accompanied from the Park by the Great Officers of State, those of his household who are in attendance, the Foreign Ambassadors, and the Nobility, who have been honoured by invitations from hiin. His M-ajesty has caused il to be signified to the Turf Club, that he will be at the Curragb on the 291 h instaiit. On llie King-'s landing, on Sunday, the first personage he recognised ou the pier, was the Earl of Kingston-" Kingston, Kingston," said his Ma. jesty, " I am heartily rejoiced to see you, you good- Oor present King is no alien from the Wood toj'al of Ireland. He is the liueaVdescendant of ber native Princes, through, the iUtistrious uml kindred Houses of Bruce and Stuart, which sprang; as was rightly remarked by James the First, from Irish monarchs. This learned ancestor of his M:i-jesty not only claia>ed affinity will) the ancieut Sovereigns of tliis country, but assigned, in full council, this known fact as a powerful cause for the interest he felt in its welfare. But he never coii-de>.cende?d to view with his own eyes the land of liis ancestors, or to converse, in the country of their nativity,' with the people for whom he expressed such paternal affection. It is left to his more iu-telligt-nt and patriotic descendant George W. to contemplate, in person, tiie natural riches-the artificial poverty-the inherent strength-the j*c-quired weakness-the neglected magnificence of this portion of his iinmense empire. He will find here a country on which the Almighty has beneficently poured forth the exhaustless blessings of fertility-a shore whose harbours might a fiord ample space and anchorage for all the shipping of the commercial world-a lively, active, social, warui-hearted, generous, but calumniated people-protKgal of their blood, when honour and patriotism calls them to the field of light-poor amidst a superabvindunce of wealth-and too long agitated and divided by paity fends, though all surrounding objects invite them to concord and to happiness. Surely our wise and benerolent Ring will investigate the causes of this unnatural poverty and disunion. In the eyes of God and man he is the common parent of his people and the slate ; and lo unite ihe cliildren of his love in the bonds of fraternal atfec-lion-to augment their commerce und ensure their future prosperity, would give unspeakable delight to his feeling he.irt, and unrivalled splendour \o Iiis reign.-fNexvry Telegraph, j We believe all our Bishops are at present in town-and in point of equipage, and what is termed a nice turn out, they have not been surpassed. COMMISSION INTELLIGENCE. Yesterday morning the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs proceeded in state to open liie Sessions at Grrt-n-stret After the Jury had been sworn, L< rd Nor-bury addressed them in the ((illnwing terms :- " Gentlemen-I congratulate yon Ihit I have liltir (o say, and that you have little to do, at ihis unrxainplnl a.i.l auspicicnis perio
