" To tb true man the thing that Le Lopca to do
always offers some compensation for the) thing
that he ceasca to enjoy." (1) And bo our Poet,
who had brooded and agonixed orer a tender bop,
and had gircn np his aoul to rweet paBeion was
not in defpair when cut off from his prospect of
blioa. His nature though tender, was not one to
keep open an everlasting fount of tears and to
whine for sympathy, lie buckled on steel and
brass, and the well g reared hero was one of the
foremost in the fierce Morisco wars, under the
leadership of that distinguished Captain in
African warfare, Don John, of whom the poet
warrior speaks in one of his sonnets saying ; he
was a King, in erery act a King. (2)
IIE LOSES HIS RIGHT ETE.
At one time we find ouriiero charging the
Moslem under the holy contested walla of Ceuta,
that had been so gloriooely won by the Illustrious
Prince Henry. Again we find him battling with
the Corsairs of Barbary in a naval engagement
off Gibraltar. Then under the walls of Tangiers
he wins more laurels of war. And at one cf
these places, (3) he receives a disastrous wound,
that mutilates his face, destroys his right eye, and
robs him of r-.ll his former comeliness. And he
bitterly deplores his loss not so much on account
of any deficiency in the exercise of an important
sense, as for fear that bis princess at home might
on seeing him again lose her interest in the shat
tered and diefigured man.
LOVE AND SLAUGHTER.
Perhaps his doubts and fears were unworthy of
his lore ; but we find him throughout this fierce
and bloody African campaign, (where he with
his comrades, that were following the heroie Don
John waded in carnage,) indulging in a pathos of
utterance, that is a marvel in its contrast to the
terrible scenes of his life, and ehowB forth in him
a paEeion of soul such as was never revealed by
any other poet. A distinguished Englishman (4)
has shown us in his story how be could pureue
literary studies amid the carousal and coarseness
of a common soldier's bivonae; and we find a
Caesar writing his commentaries amid all the ac
tivities of a campaign : but here is a warrior
whoee band is grimed with the gore and dust of
conflict, who can during the lulls of the storm of
battle, sit down and write thus to a girl, whom
he had ody known as an ideal, and worshipped
from afar. .
When the declining sun (tle way

And ibadowi aail along the green.

And morn but makes me long for night,
And think bow swift the miuutre flew.

I wandet'd ailently.
The lile of - the Portuguese campaigner in
Africa, during the wars of the sixteenth century,
was as aiduous and self reliant as that of the Ro
man soldier under Regulus or Scipo. The Lusi
tanian warrior hod to prepare his own cake of
farina, and if he got a broil from a carcase be had
to thank the prowess of his own right band, and
the fortune of the chase or of war. But let us
not suppose that he would have b:en a better
warrior with a better commissariat; as we have
seen men stand well to their guns who were fed
daily on tinn'd dainties, and who ' had milk
punches ladled to them from ladies' hands; but
we may think that the well fed, fat campaigner
of modern days might have less inspiration of
poesy in him, than the hardy adventuring warrior
of olden times, who carried his commissariat and
sanitary commission in his own stout heart and
strong right arm: And Camoens must have had
his heart ribbed with triple steel in order to have
preserved nmid the horrors and strifes of his life
in African deserts, the sweetness and tenderness
of a nature that seemed fitted only to have been
blcsecd in his love's boudoir.
The poet tells us in his great song of the Lusiad
how his breast was steeled ;
By vigilance; by glorious feats periormM
In polish'd mail; by braving fearful storms
And tumbling waves, and every extreme
r beat and cold in regions shelterless;
My resignation to initrescent food
Heason'd by famine and impending death;
By forcing the pale aspect to assume
The mien of cheerfulness and confidence.
While from the cannon's mouth the fatal ball
Or maims, or kills a comrade in the field.
'Tis thus the breast with noble fortitude
Is steer A". ()
But how the tenderness of it was preserved
even unto the last day of a long and tempestuous
lile, we must suppose that the flame of love which
had so suddenly and wonderfully warmed and
lighted up his existence was never afterwards for
one moment quenched.
Of course there is doubt about everything
especially about anything that is glorious, but
hardly of anything evil in the world. There is
doubt about the inspiring lives of William Tell
and Joan of Arc, but none about the damnable
existences of a Nero of Rome, or a Catherine of
Russia. Every beautiful thing is doubted, and so
the truth of the sweet idyl of Camoens and Cate
rina is doubted ; yet not the historical fact of two
such persons having loved, but the genuineness of
the love of the lady is doubted ; and indeed there
arc writers who say, that the beautiful Donade
Ataide fully acquiesced in the plan of her rela
tives to have removed from Lisbon her pursuing
adventurer, and so relieve her from an impassioned,
importuning, and disturbing presence. (C)
But happily there is no proof of this, and it is
mainly an inference that is based upon the repre
sentations of interested relatives; who say that
Camoens wearied his lady love by his over ardent,
impassioned obtrusion of himself upon her notice.
Yet who knows but that Camoens may have been
overreaching and overstraining the sentiment of

3 There is a wide difference smoo the authorities io
respect to tbe locality where Camoens kt his eye. One sajs
under the walls of Cents ; another says fn a naval engage
ment off Gibraltar ; and still another mentions Tangiers as tbe
place where be was mutilated. At any rate it occurred in
Africa; and the Dillon Medallion executed io 176. in Ppafn
represent the right eye of the pott as closed. ,

one who could njt understand him? What did
he know of the lady before he gave himself up to
eueb lull blown love, and even when he wafted to
her froui the deports Of Africa, garlands or his
soul, tinted with the very droppings of his heart?
What did he know hoyond a picture of striking
bcauly, and some little show of interest prompts!
on one only occasion, by his impassioned invasion
of her presence ? What did he know ?
TUE TRAXSHCURATION OF FAIT IT.
Ah f if all our hopes were of knowledge only,
where would we be? What would be our religion?-
And the religion of Camoens in those dajs
was in this young' woman. Ills love for her was
the inspiration of faith ; of a faith that transfig
ures and glorifies. She was indeed to bin 41 a
woman, clothed with the sun, and the 'moon
under her feet," (7) and he could only contem
plate beTwith -the diffident and reverential feel
icg.'as contained in these lines, translated from
one of his sonnets : - -
LaJy ! to you, sure heav'nly songs are due,'
fince Heaven has form'4 you wiia peculiar ore;
Then how, alas sban your poet dare
. AIUum his Sim pis Bteiodies to you f
M ot I not trust to that kind chance anew
W hich lately wove the rosy bands 1 bear.
(When brt it gsve yea to my amoroua view);
r or surely, lady, )ou derive your birth
From J on pure aky, and did from thence desceaJ,
Tw cherish virtue so. this lowly earth,
And mortal hearts of bsser mold amend,
By bright example of superior world
lie of course irradiated her form with the
kindling beams of his own burning love. His
soul was like tho gemrn'd cave of the genii that
reflected on a fair presence its own effulgence.
He had garnered op with the continence of. years
an accumulation of passion, that was ready to
flame forth with, overmastering power, the mo
ment that a soul of seeming affinity spoke by
voice, or by the witchery of a brow, an eye, a
marked expression of mouth, or other striking
feature of beauty, and cried open sesame " to
his heart. Had his true angel touched his lips
with celestial fire and pointed the way upwards?
Or had some vapory .witching will o the wisp
dazed his vision with a baleful sparkle of gas
of malarious earth, that would lead him on to
sink his manhood in tho Blough of a hopeless and
miserable sentimentality? It may have been the
will o' the wisp ; and it may have been tbe angel ;
but of one thing we are assured, that Camoens,
who never saw his dear love any more, showed
forth in all the troubled days of a long after life,
that he felt that it was the angel that had called
him, and he remained to the last moment of a
noble and manly career true to her sweet message
unto his soul. . - ,,
THE HATE OF JEALOUSV. ; ;s !
One is wearied with pitifulnees as we follow
the career of this man. A sullen fate hounded
him at evry step, and all his woe sprang from
his love. We -see him win Ianret upon laurel
during this African war. He was maimed and
mutilated hxhia country's service, and still fought
ber battles with a patient and faithful courage ;
and yet there came no voice to welcome him to
home and honor. lie fought under a brave and
generous prince, who admired his genius and
nobility of character, yet who let him struggle
on unnoticed. But the neglect of Camoens is
only one of a thousand illustrations of zealous
service to a sovereign hindered of its reward,- not
so much by the ingratitude of tbe ruler ns that
the ruler's will was not strong enough to overrule
the many combined petty influences ' that sur
round a court, that with the natural freemasonry
common to mediocrities in place, are forever striv
ing to bar the way to the entrance of superior
merit within the pale. i
HOW HIS WAY WAS BLOCKED.
The poet was forever ' tabooed to the circle to
which his lady love belonged. The lordly .brother
Antonio de Ataide guarded all tbe influences that
approached the palace at Lisbon. The Cardinal
Henry who hated Camoens presided over the
patronage of the church ; and as General de
Ataide was in immediate command in Africa,
there was a cordon of mighty influences that
kept our hero in check, and caused him to wreak
the expression of his soul in vain. One- would
suppose that his enemies, who were 'all his
country-men would have wwried of their hate
in time ; since all his life was pure and noble and
forever devoted to public service ; but there is no
ill-will 60 enduring as that which is based npon
jealousy of preeminence. And he whose noble
life was a constant labor to please his compatriots,
who above all other writers has made the Iberian
Peninsula illustrious, " who had taught her
literary fame to rival tbe proudest efforts of Italy
itself, ond who seemed born to revive the remem
brance of ancient gentility, and Lusian heroism '.'
(8) was compelled to struggle single handed for
tbe maintenance of his independence without one
word of kindly recognition; from any influential
. THE FAITHFUL HEART OF THE rOET.
But what was Camoens doing nevertheless?
He who had a dear mother nt San tare dj,- and tbe
idol of his soul at Lisbon. Was he listening in
antc-chambers and begging for furlough and
favor? :- We don't find him there. We find him
by the camp fire, and though he is without a sup
per, lie is penning a sonnet for his darling. And
though his country has provided no resting place
for his head, and he has found his own fare in
putrid jackall, yet this faithful loving heart,
true to the memory of his love and his country,
can by the smoldering embers of a rude night's
bivouac in a desert land and without a friend
pen such thoughts as these about the land he
loved, but which offered him no invitation, or
welcome home ? '
M Claraa agoaa e friaa do Mondego," Ac .
Mondego ! thou, whose waters cold and clear -
nird those green banks, where fancy fair would stay,
Foodly to miaae on that departed day
When hope waa kind and friendship aeem'd aincere ;
Ere I had purchas'd knowledge with a tear.
Dear country ! though I bend my pilgrim way
To other shores, where other fountains stray,
And other rivers roll their proud career,
Still nor shall time, nor grief, nor stars severe,
Nor wideuing distance e'er prevail in aught .
To make thee ksi to this sad bosom dear ;
And memory oft, by old affection taught,
Shall lightly speed upon the plumes ot thought,
To drink Mondego's waters cold and clear !
- THE NOBLE STIRIT OF CAMOENS.
In all the writings of this brave and tender
soul, there is not a word of bitterness, or of any
anger or viudictiveness. The spirit of his poesy
breathes in every liue a generous forgiveness and
forgctfulness of whoever and whatever may have
harmed him. Nothing can alienate him from the
cause he has once espoused; and. although be la
ments at times the hardness and narrowness of
natures who will not extend to him even a kindly
look of recognition or approval; yet he keeps on
his work, and makes a generous record, though
at times working on with eyes dimm'd with tears.
Whilst sorrow and bitter disappointment are
wringing his heart; his soul is at the same time
7 " Tbe manor woman who cherishes an ideal is always
liable to this accident, that tbe spiritual image often descend
like a mantle, and invests some very ordinary person, who is,
for the time beicg, transfigured "a woman clothed with tbe
sua, and the moon under her fevt." It is aot what there is in
the person, but what there is in us, that gives this passage in
life tt critical power. It would seem as if there were in some
men and some women preparation ior a grand interior illumin
ation and passion, like that hoard of mystical gams and
apices wbiCA tbe phemix was fabled to prepare for its funeral
pile ; all the aspiration and poetry and romance, tbe upheaval
toward an infinite arxl eternal good, a divine purity and rest,
may be eokiodled by the touch of a very ordinary and earthly
hand (or the glance of an eye), and burning itself out, leave
only cold ashes of experience." Tl,e-e words cf Mrs. U. B.
htowe, in " my ife and I." are suited to the case of Camo- ns
and many men like him : but such natures don't burn out their
souls to cold ashes ; but like the ever incandescent aerolite in
its aerial flight maintain their glow of dime through life till
tlayed by their grariutiug orb ; as it may Dot perhaps he so
much a woman, as the- leinmii.e timosphere that sets them
aflame, r-uch natures have no bitter memories ; no hearts
cli-ggetl with ashes of duapr ointment but there is ever held
io their remembrance as a sacred evangel, what ever insliu-rm-niality
God may hare sent, that prompted them to seek a
higher life, even though tbey may have mistaken the character
of UUj aaslrtMTieoiaHty.

What an aruVr, and what an un-Tticnchahle
enthusiasm there must have leea in a nature;
that no stor-n, nor exposure, nor hard ch&bce, nor
hard fare, nor any harshness of the situation
could stop the outflow ia sweet rythmic lines of
this poetic soul ! It was the same, whether sit
ting by the smoky, oft disturbed camp fire; or
whether on board ship, where, leaning against
' taetapericg mast
Hevy acd co'id reoime lbs Ucgutd crew,''
His fervent soul kindled up ever the same, and
sought expression. Whilst he. was toiling and
fighting in Africa, or making weary voyage to
India,' he was only occupied in making a record
to preserve the memories of the heroes of his
country. And it is to Camoens that we owe our
chief interest in the Illustrious Henry, in tho
great Kings John and Emmanuel, and in the re
nowned Oriental discoverer Ysseo de Gama.
HE EXXOELES COMMERCIAL ADVENTCKE.
Camoens sings the first song of progress, of
which the Illustrious Prince Henry made the first
steps... Cambens is the voice of "peaceful adven
ture and of beneficent commerce; and yet his is a
voice of generous chivalry, and not of any of tbe
sordidnegs of trade. He is the first man who
thinks to give to trade a coronet of nobility. He
thrills with epic grandeur as he shows to us, Gama
presenting at Calicut the utilities of Europe in
exchange for, Che luxuries of 'Asia. And you who
have delighted in the fierce and vengeful voices of
Hector and Achilles, or of the bold Rugero, or
tho crusading Godfrey of Bouillon; or of a valo
rous, slaughtering Black Prince of England, listen
to the words of our Poet's hero, de Gama, as he
addmses a pagan Prince of Asia. :
Fro EuropSi strand I trace the foamy way, "
To find the regions of the infant day.
The tid we worship stretch'd yon heaven's high bow,
And gave these awelting waves to roll below ; '
The hemispheres of night and day He spread,
He scoop'd each vale, and rear'd each mountain's head ;
His word produe'd tbe nations of the earth,
And gave the spirits of tbe sky their birth.
- On eirth by Him, His holy tare waa given, . ' .
Oa earth He came to raise mankind to Heaven," 4c " ;
And thus as preachers and teachers of right
eousness, aq, well as chivalrous adventurers,
Camoens leads his heroes , onward round the
bounds of the savage continent, where he was
groaniug in exile, until their glorious advent in
the new world of the cast. This great story of
the Lusiad he began in Africa, although it was
chiefly written .in India. It was oT-course in
wonderful contrast to the scenes that surrounded
him. How could he write of glories, and pro
duce marvels of beautiful expression in tbe midst
of miseries? Of course he was deem'd insane
by the most of those who stood near nnd observ'd
his work. Why should he not curse his enemies
like David? Or curse God and die? What
meant the man with his everlasting tributes' of
praise, when the grip of influence was choking
him, off from everything he held dear ? Why did
he not scorch and desolate his enemies-with his
pen of fire, whose expressions of sweetness and
fervor brought forth only worthless tears after he
was dead 'and gone? Why did he keep the
peace? " Because he loved he loved and he
could not curse whilst his heart was thrill'd unto
its last throb with one everlasting ache of love.
Hear him :
; " Iulgnme a gente toda por perdido ,
.Vendoine tao entregue a meu cuydddo Ac." ..
My senses lost, miojuding men declare,
And reason banished from her mental throne,
Because I shun the crowd, and dwell alone
In the calm trance of undislurb'd despair, . .
Tears all my pleasure all my comfort care !
Hut I have known from my experience known
How vain the worship to those idols shown.
Which charm the world, and reign unrlvall'd there:
Proud dreams of power, and fortune's gilded glare.
The lights that blare in tall ambition's tow'r,
For such, let others waste life's little hour
In toil and weary search, but be it mine.
Dear girl ! to muse of thee and io my bow'r
Pour to thy praise the soul impassioned line !

J. R. Brown, the " Mind Reader," gave an exhi
bition Thursday evening in Masio Hall, New Haven,
and Dr. George M. Bread of New York was present
for the puspose of exrosing him. . Brown was not
quite so successful in. the experiments proposed by
Beard and himself, but did not by any means fail,
nor was he exposed. The committee was composed
of Yale professors and physicians. The experiment
with which the exhibition closed was particularly
severe and very successfully performed by Brown.
A movement is on foot in Washington to get up
another expedition to the north Pole. The proposi

It is a merited compliment to!. Poo Carlos that
three of his brother Bourbons have agreed that he
shall be regarded as the head of their bouse. They
even invest him with " the presumptive right" to
the throne of France a phrase which, if correctly
reported, leaves De Chambord out in the cold. So
far as Don Carlos' struggle in Spain is concerned,
the new recognition will not strengthen his chances
to any extent worth noting; and as for his presump
tive heirship to the French throne, it would not
bring a franc under the hammer. But then, the
Dou is the bravest and most enterprising of his fam
ily, and if the family must have pretensions, why he
is the fittest to wear them.
The revival of religious intolerance in Turkey is
likely to bring ber into difficulty with Germany.
The ordinances prohibiting the residence of Christi
ans io Turkey have been revived, and are being car
ried out by the officials with much brutality, Christi
ans and their furniture being thrown into the streets.
Several Germans have been treated in this manner,
notwithstanding by the decree of 1840, and the treaty
of 1S56, Turkey promised that nobody should be
molested on account of his religious opinions.
Treaties of commerce permit foreign countries to
carry on business in any part of the Turkish empire,
with tbe exception of a single province, and their
leases and contracts have hitherto been treated as
legal by the authorities. Whatever other foreign
powers may do in tbe matter, Bismarck is likely to
demand immediate reparation for the outrages com
mitted upon Germi.n subjects, and a renewal of reli
gious toleration. .
Taking the conversion of the Marquis of Ripon to
the Catholic religion for its theme, the Unit Cal
tolira of Rome cotnpars the progress of Catholicism
in Great Britain fur tbe past hundred years. Ac
cording to the most authentic documents it obtains
some results that probably will surprise many. In
17C5 there were 00,000 Catholics in England and
Scotland; in 1821 they numbered 600,000; in
1S4J. 2,500.000; in 184-3, 3.330,000. There are to
day in England 1,453 Catholic churches, 80 monas
teries for men, 08 for women, 1,200 schools, and
1.803 priests. England, Scotland and Wales are di
vided into twenty dioceses. Thirty -three members
of the House of Lords are Catholics, while thirty
seven sit id tbe Queen's Privy Council.,. In the
ranks of the baronc's they number seventy-seven.
