TheBatbonAcbtrtueraiyb-' Thehie- torr of Bowie Brother ik Co., tells ao fike a romance, that, if the facta had not haDDeoad under the eyes of every one, nobody would believe it possible w goch tbines could have taken place. Some six or seven years ago, Mr. Charles Bowles set out, like Cap tain Kidd, with the world before him and his fortune to make, and estab lished his famous banking house at Paris. How he maoaeed to struggle through the first few years is a mys tery, conmdenn&r how little trust money could at that early dsy. have been placed in his hands, since, as far as appears, neither he nor any one else put anything into the concern ; perhaps for the reason, among others, no one had anything to put in. Indeed he must have fallen long ago had it not been for a surprising piece of good luck ' One fine morning he induced Mr. Appleton, of Boston, to become a partner, at first with a limited liabili- lty, but there now se...
