g wasconmoled by the reflection that the vsga
bond had left his trunk behind. It was very
lage and heavy, and before causing the look
to be broken next morning, Signor Benevolo
1. calledsome of his friends to make an inven
u tory of its contents. It was found filled with
r. sand ! The young debut, at had resorted to this
trick, that the servants at the inns where they
,g stopped might believe the trunk contained
gold, and treat him with respect aecordingly.
. The impresario was in a towering passon.
I He railed at Louni, showering on him abusive
s epithets a a cheat and an impostoer. He could
only retaliate for the losees of his fifteen dcts
m by writing him a letter fall of furious invec
at tives, ssaurling him that so base a thief need
never aspire to the honors of tragedy I
t, The letter was read quietlyby Louis, who
e made no answer, but applied himself diligently
be to his mnusieal studies. His progress was so
ad rapid that his masters declared he bade fair to
rd rival Bobrer on the violoncello and Tulon on
rt the flute. As a reward for his efforts, ahall in
d- the conservatorio was arranged for the private
representations of the pupile.
In the autumn of 1830, eo-msanaoger Benevolo
chanced to be in Paris. The beautiful Rosina in
was then noted as an admired singer. She had ro
many conversations with the Itdilan who was lea
disgusted with the French actors, ana declared ant
that the best days of tragio art were past. fro
One day there was no small excitement at In•
the announcement of the tragic opera of OteUo. fee
It was given out that a new artist of great in*
repautah would appear at the Theatre Italien.i
His progress tlbough the Italian oities had •
been a continued triumph. On his first ap- in
pearance in Paris the connoiseeunr had been aff
determined to show him no favor. As he came eal
on the stage, his grand, imposing figure and del
good-humored countenance were prepossessing, so
but when his magnificent voice rose swelling Yo
above the orchestra, there was a burst of rap
turous applause. Powerful and thrilling, pen- of
etrating to the depths of pathos, that voice S
carried all before it; and-he w
clammation the first basse-faille of the age. eca
"You must bear him," said Rosina, as the ex- be
manager protested that be did not care for it. bu
He would be sure to condemn what pleased th
I those fantastical Parisians. to
" You must hear himn in Olello," persisted the th
a fair singer. "Here is an invitation for yon, fo
- written by himself."
" Why should he have sent this to me ?" ask- li
ed the gratified Italian. P
"As a friend of mine," replied the singer, ni
"he wished to show you attention. You will k

was carried away by enthusiasti like the audi

Last week we published a desoription of
the ceremoniee, etc., of this marriage which
bas occnpied the.thoughts of the English
people for some time, sad which, in view
of the eharacter and history of the young
Marquis, could uot fail to prove of interest
to our readers.` Owing to the crowded
state of our columns we were not able to
publish, at the game time, the beautiful ad
dress of Mgr.' Capel to the newly-married
couple, but are pleased to be enabled to
suppl y the omission in this issue. After
the Mlass the Very Rev. Gentleman spoke
" bMy dear children in Jesus Chlist, we ture
are hear nearthe Altar of God Almighty to wort
consider seriously before Him, and in the shar
solitude of your Fouls, the serious obliga- alon
tions that are entailed upon you'hy enter- peri
ing into that holy state to which God ihas en
now alled you, It is not for me at this pati
moment to dwell upon those responsilities, som
inasmuch as you have familiarized your- retii
selves with them in thought, but there is man
one aspect we must not lose sight of in this enal
moment. The very first act that you have clot
done after your union. is to receive that quic
God Who gave- Himself in His infinite nari
mercy and love, and who has called you to ligh
be a mutual support to each other. Re- cene
member it is not only that natural contract T
thit you have made, but tat that natural eric
contract has; been raised Uo a much higher bee
position by the Precious Blood of Our nee
Blessed Lord being shed upon that union qne
through this Sacrament of Matrimony. wha
This was to put a higher seal upon-this tiot
union springing from that natural contract. dos
Then you have advaneosd one step farther; do
and, not satisfied with receiving this Sacra- nej
ment of Matrimony, you would willingly do
seal that sacred union by uniting yourselves abi
separately with the Person of your dear qga
Lord. Now, do remember,-my dear chil- sell
dren in Jesus Christ, that there is one great opi
consequence resulting from this. It is that ca
from this day heneeforth you are but one an,
in thought, in affection, in joy and in sor- wh
row. From this day forward one of you wb
leaves that home where she was protected as
and cared for; she separates from father, the
from mother, from sisters; she goes with pe,
Innocence of soul and with warmth of af- set
fection, and she reposes all that affection cis
in your hands who are to be her lord and ms
master. She from henceforth will reflect we
in her person the -marvellous mercy and die
affection which God shows to us here on roi
earth, and which she places in your hands, ea
dear child, so that you may receive it, and thi
so that you may beqome her protector. hil
You represent in your person that source we
of authority which Almighty God grants to me
us in' the married state here on earth. You, wl
indeedreceive from Him a power that none
can take from you. You have to reality o di
bear the harder portion of that barthen, fai
but you do it upon the strong ground that
that God Who has so imparted authority th
to you will give you the grace to become at
the protector of innocence. From this day ec
forward you are ready to spend your whole di
life, your whole fortune and influence, to a
protect that flower which God in His inf- bi
nite goodness has put into your sacred pl
II keeping. You, on your side, not only offer ai
protection of a natural and material kind, ti
but also that higher protection which is es- ei
e sential and necessary. You stand forward a,
e as her defender under all sorts of circum- t,
d stances. As God has called into existence t
e His Church, and protects it by His sacred tl
b unity, so do you become her special pro- a
te tector-one who is to defend her under all ti
1- circumstances, and you will be well repaid t1
E- by finding in her an affection that is pure c
1e and holy. You will find there the sacrifice o
of every thought to yotfr interests; you i
d, will meet there a support even in the midst r
of yourown trials; you will flndthere that i
mutual assistance that will enable you, af
. ter having endured the trialsof life, to pre- 1
ne pare yourself for that eternity that God has
in store for you. But do remember that in
n- the midst' of our joys we must never forget L
,r- that the crown of thorns is laid upon us.
i- Happy as you are, dear children, to-day- i
happy in the thought of your own mutual
affection, happy in the thought of so many
or hearts rejoicing with you at this moment,
happy .n thinking over the spontaneous
t outburst of affection on the part of those
to- who live on your respective properties
of yer with all this-happiness sorrow must in
some way or other be your portion. Al.
so mighty od wills it, and you must bear
i your cross, and in that hour remember
that you are then to be the great sup
at port of each other. No one else can
ip- gome in save God, just as your-joys
ad are sacred and separate from the world; so
'he likewise are your sorrows pleading to each
o- other's hearts. Encourage each- other,
tht then, on this head. Bear bravely that
ted cross which lie who lays it upon you has
ted blessed beforehand-that cross of the Sa
.t crament of Matrimony, to enable you to
A» bear the trials, to bear thelittleweaknesses
ie of each other, to bear the mighty responsi
bility of bringing up those whom Hein good
in- time will grant to you. Go forth, then, dear
has children, into that world in the name of
the Ged who sanctified you at the altar
ex- this morning-go forth in His strength to
mee your home, and let that home be the model
of every Christian perfection; that-natural
influence let it be raised to supernatural
a t" power. Do this by tile exercise of those
*om means of sanctification which God puts at
was your disposal. Be brave in resisting all
that may now surround the family and
ne- threatens to destroy it. Remember that
in your persons you will become mirrors
you reflecting the duty which is imposed upon
tue you. You will have to bear the cross of
few God in a higher position. You have, dear
ing children, this day received from Him Who

interest sad his usethlnla to soclety. No
one can have thought deeply owthe philos
ophy of life, or have closely observed its
practieal llln ii bhout feeling assured
that thesg two a ntieal. The general $
good demands the -highest prosperity and
happiness of each individual while that
very happiness and success depend upon S
hisbeing in the position in which he can
be most useful to the community. It A
is, therefore, of the utmost importance that sti
these two motives blend in the choice thus
made. The first is rarely, if ever, absent;
the latter is too seldom thought of. The
mind, however, that is too narrow to see
aught beyond its own petty circle of inter
ests will fail to secure even them in their
fullness; -it is the broad and generous na
ture, longing to fill its own place in the
work of the world, and to contribute its Ca
share to ~he welfare of society, that is will
alone capable of promoting its tree pros
perity. Such a spirit would at once pre
vent a young man from selecting an occu
pation because it is fashionable, or because TEST
some have rapidly made fortunes in it and
retired, or because it mpkes but small de- [FrP
mands upon his strength and activity, or "
enables him to keep unsoiled his hands or "s
clothing. Such motives, if suggested, will wiTi
quickly be banished, as petty, mean, and ?v
narrow-alike incompatible with an en
lightened self-interest and a kindly benefi
Two questions may be suggested as cov- l.
ering the entire ground: "For what am I t
best adapted t" and, "What does society a
need t" The first is usually a very hard a
question to answer. The cases are few toy
where a talent is so marked and an inclina- eat
tion so strong, as to-leave no room for -
doubt as to the future course. Where they bu
do exist their indications should never be Oe
neglected. But what are the majority to 3a
do who have io such bias; who, with fair
abilities, are yet unconscious of any special 'Th
qualifications What is to guide them in be
selecting from the many spheres of action tru
open before them, that one in which they le
can work most profitably to themselves I
and to others ? It may help them some- as
what, to discover those occupations for of
I which they are plainly unadapted. Just
as weak eyes must preclude the business of
the engraver, so any pursuit requiring a a
peculiar talent or aptitude must at once be be
set aside by those who are hoplessly defi- m
n cient in that particular. A strong aversion U
may also be taken as a guide, though here
we would guard against that very common
d dislike to exertion as such, which is the v
n rock upon which so-many split. To the f
d employment thus rejected we may add all
d those-which involve any deviation from the t
r. highest sense of duty and honor. No re
e ward, however glittering, should for a mo
0 ment tempt any one to disobey the gentlest
ai whisperings of conscience. The gold thus
e gaiued,wnich seems so bright, will grow
o dim upon the, first touch, and will utterly 9
at fail to bring the happiness it promises.
t Upon the answer to the second question, of
3' the majority of young persons of average eI
e abilities must mainly depend, if they would
Sy choose wisely their life-work. Vhat labor d
e. does socioty need t It needs undoubtedly ti
to all honorable labor for its full development,
- but some of its needs are already well-sup- o
4d plied, while others are earnestly calling for
er aid. This fact, therefore, affords one of
d, the plainest guides to every one seeking
r- employment, and to every parent who has ti
any control or influence over his son's fa
- ture. There is perhaps no labor in which c
ce t'e supply so greatly exceeds thedemand as
that included in a mercantile life. Clerks,
" accountants, sakanmen, agents, and sma 1
all tradesmen are of course needed, and did
id the number of such positions equal or ex
re ceed the number of claimants, they would
ce offer inducements both in remuneration and
o in prospects of future elevation. But the
t reverse is the case. In all our cities, both
'at in the E:astern and Western States, there is
a large surplus of such labor; consequent
ie- ly the competition is intense, and only
I thoue who possess money or influence, or
in very special and extraordinay abilities,
get have any prospect of success or promotion.
O. Oti the other hand, there is a large and
-I increasing demand for skilled and mechan
tal ical labor in all its various branches, a de
mand which is as yet, by no means met,
nt, and as a natural result all the trades are
ens offering indncements,both in remuneration,
ose independerce, and prospects of rising, that
- mercantile life has no power to present.
in The same is true of agricultural pursuits.
Al. Can a more definite answer be given to the
ear inquiry, "What labor does society need ?"
It is calling aloud for the farmer, the house
upa and ship builder, the plumber, the mason,
can the miner, the machinist and blacksmith,
ys the contractor of railroads, bridges, and
o canals--for all, in fact, who are able and
a willing to aid in developing the material
er, resources of this great country, whether by
has production or manufacture. It is not call
a in for the clerk, the book-keeper, the
to salesman, the commercial traveler. Of all
sses such, and of others aiding-to carryonthe
usi- mercantile profession, it has already a sn
Oed perfluity. All enlightened self-interest
ear and a desire to fill an honorable post of
a usefulness in the world, which, as we have
f rseen, always co-operate, alike demand the
t avoidance of the over-crowded avenues of
de employment, and a cheerful, vigorous en
ral trance upon those which need our energies.
ural They are so many and varied that all
lose tastes can he gratified, unless it is a taste
for fashlionable idleness, the indulgence of
Swhich is alike pernicious to the individual
a and to society. The country teems with
tad labor for the willing, and is generonus in
her rewards. But it wants ready hands
r that are neither afraid nor ashamed to
pon work, united with the intelligence of mind
de and integrity of pnrpose that ennoble all
ho pursunits. -Neteo Jersey Meehaaic.
It is not the best things--that is, the
things which we call best-that make men;
is is not the pleasant thions; it is not the
calm experiences of life; it is life's rugged
experiences, its tempests, its trials. The
dicsipline of life is here good and there evil,
