PASKEWITCU AND DIEBITSCH. A French officer, who wat present . at , a splendid ball given to the late Emperor Alex ander at Moscow, in 1821, speaks in the fol lowieg terms, of these celebrated characters. -' In the group of officers who, at times assem bled in his suite, I observed Paskewitchj : hit stature was lofty, his hair scanty, and bis look melancholy. His eye ^bone. like light ning ; and deep meditation had rendered him bald. Diebitsch, too, was one of .the circle : 1 met with him on several occasions, and .amongst others, at Taganrog, at the time of Alexander's death. He is of, diminutive' stat- ure ; his complexion sunburnt, and he wiilks with, hit head bent downwards: his look is chilling; but he has a busy, fiery eye: his forehead it high, like Buonaparte's ; his back somewhat bent, and his features remind me of Cbaleaubriant's, allowing for disparity of years. His age at the present moment' must be from five to seven and forty. His person betrays great vivacity of though...
