When twilight spreads, slow, still and deep
And like a calm and dreamy sleep.
Sinks softly o'er the shore and sea,
I'll cornc to thee, I'll cotnc to the.
I'll come to thee when morning's beam
Breaks brightly o'er the uiead aud stream ;
When buds and blooms are bathed iu dew
And birds their carols wake anow.
When summer gires its noonday heat,
When rills make music at his feet.
And flocks to cooling shades shall flee,
I'll como to tllfe. I'll Clime In tli
I'llcomo to tlicc when o'or thy joy
ifo sorrow pours its dark alloy,
"When bounds thy glad heart, light and free,
As bouuds the young fawn in its glee.
When storms shull gather o'er thy head.
And darkness o'or thy spirit spread ;
When friends thou lov'st shall ceaao to be,
I'll couie to the, I'll come to thee.
I come to thoe ; no more we part ;
No farewell darkness now tho heart ;
No calm repose, no sullen glooru,
Nor aughtcan part us but the tomb.

All I life will sweetly cease to be ;
And like n wild bird on the wing,
I'll come to thee, I'll conic to thee.

Energy may be said to be one of the most
Important elements of character. In some
sense, it influence?, controls and rules the
trorld. No great undertaking can be
achieved, no mighty work can be consummated,
no vast enterprise can be carried into '
successful effect without its aid and agency.
Io matters of love as well as in matters of |
war, it is equally poteut. The faint-hearted
are rarely energetic, and hence they nre
sure to lag behind, and bo out-distanced by
their competitors and rivals.?The individual

have been favored by a patrimony, however
bright our hopes and expectations, as we
enter upon the arena of tho busy world, wo

a due degree of firmness, determination i

by ttie prcinv'^-ition, on the excited and
visionary, of some plausible aud tempting
scheme. It may have all the elemenf-s of
probability, abound with fascination, and
bold out buoyant and .encouraging inducements
to the active, the pushing and the
persevering. And yet, without energy?
constant, untiling and indomitable, it will
amount to a mere bubble. If we are asked
for the true secret of the motive power, the
active principle of success, in this life, and
were confined for our answer to a single
word, that word would be ''energy." Men
ofrivid imaginations and poetic fancies,
dreamers, enthusiasts and fanatics, are constantly
starting schemes and undertakings,
which, at the first glance, are calculated to
captivate. But how rarely do they enter
into auch movements in a truly practical
spirit, and bring to-their aid that degree of
energy which is so essential to success !
Thousands of our fellow-creatures are selfdeceived.
They do not look sufficiently
before they leap. They do not examine
the entire ground, and oalculate all the 1
chances, before they risk their- - judgment,
their means, their reputation and their time.
N*y, tbev do not look all the difficulties
calmly and sternly in the lace, and determine
at the onset to wrestle with and overcome
them. On the contrary, they struggle
n for a few days or for few wecksand because
they cannot realize all they faniced, they !
become dispirited, intimidated and abandon
what they are then disposed to consider a
delusion, for some other scheme. In brief,
they either lack forethought at the outset,
-and thus commit a mistake in the begining,
or they are dehcient in energy, and thus are
Mre to fail. The struggles of the comraer

An Eveuiiig with Madame Lo Vert.
Who Ims not heard of Madame Octavia
Walton Lo Vert?in her girlhood thebrilli.-.tif.
i.Mi? ~r ' < -
ni^iwii, miner nuer
winter, and now in the liloom of womanhood
tho lovolio t uii'l most distinguished
daughter of the South ? tho beautiful Americati
and literati, on her Tecent absence
in Europe and the talented author of "SouveHits
of Travel/' whose simple winning details
have earned it a plnco in every American
home? Truly, her name is a "household
word" among us, and we presume that
many a fair render of Life, who has smiled
and wept over the enchanting ' Souvenirs,"
lias experienced a womanly cui'o ity to know
how its author looked?how she spoke and
smiled, and whether her personcllc was really
as enchanting as it is described.
Those were exactly my sensations as I sat
in one of the parlors of tho St. Nicholas,
where, a week or two ago, Madame Le Vert
?iis sojourning, wmi a brilliant party, liom
the South. There is always a slight degree
of nervousness inseparable from tlic first interview
with those " bright particular stars"
of the literary firmament?one half in fears
lest they should prove cold, haughty, and
repellant, or lost they should be lifted up
above the atmosphere of common humanity.
But all those apprehensions were dispersed
like a cloud of night phantoms tho instant
Madame Lo Vert glided in. Imagine a
lovely little creature, somewhat below
the ordinary height of women, perfectly
formed, with blue melting eyes, a luxnriance
of dark silken hair, and features so faultlessly
chiselled that they might liave been
moulded by Phidias himself. She was attired
with that nit-tiiropfiiio riflnwss ?vliu-li ic
so characteristic of southern cost um c everything
soetned perfect, from the small, exquisitely
shaped ear, from which depended
a tre-foil of diamond fire, to the beautiful
arms, full of nestling d'mpl- the tiny
foot which seemed forn. ot only on
banks of roses.
The conversational p.. of Madame
Le Veil are unusual, particularly as compared
with those of most American ladies,
for?we say it with a pang of mortified national
pride ?the daughters of the ''free ami
independent shore" have not yet learned the
use of their generous mother tongue. They
can talk, but they cannot converse.
Madame Le Vert is an exception to the
general rule. Her conversation, rendered
still more attractive bv the intonation of a
deliciously musical voice, flows along like
the waildo of a June rivulet, sparkling with
....vl.mviv, iilii huh illustration ana inrowing
its own graces around every subject it
It may not be amiss, here, to relate a simple
incident apprnpos to this rare command
of language, which occured to Madame Lc
Vert during her visit to M. dc Lamartine.
She was describing to him, with enthusiastic
vivacity, her sojourn in Spain, and be
lisiencd, his dark, poet oye enchained toiler
ra<Ii'4ut countenance with almost magnetic
lustre. At long:!:,*hc paused, and he spoke:
"Madame," said lie, earnestly, " you have
one gift of which you, yourself, are not
aware of the possesion. Madame, you are
a natural imjtrovisa trice. While I listened
to yon, I felt myself in Spain amid the very
scenes you describe. Now, it is impossible
for you to be an improvisatricc, because
you are not an Italian woman, but you can
be <1 writer. You can fill, whh nlpiisnrn tli?
hearts of your nation by describing what
you have seen to tliem, as you are now delighting
me. When the excitement ami fascinations
of your tour are over, and you are
oneo more quietly at home, remember what I
have said to you, and employ your leisure
in giving to the world a few souvenirs of
your European- life."
Struck bv this idea, Madame Le Vert adopted
the very phrase of the poet states;
man, and christened her charming hook,
'"Souvenir of Travel," and thus to the hint
of M.de Lamartine we are indebted for those
chatty reminiscences which transport render
into the very midst of tuosc circles mingled
in by their author.
The book has been no less popular in
England than in A moiea. The Queen herself,
whose reception of the trans atlantic
beauty was flattering in the highest degree,
sent over an affectionate message after having
read the Souvenirs, ''Tell Madame Le
Vert that the American people ouirht to bo
very much obliged to her for presenting to
them Mich a correct view of England society."
She also dispatched a graceful acknowledgement
of the cordial and complimentary
mention which is frequently made of her
Majesty throughout the book.

throughout the whole South, Mndamo
E,e Vert holds the high position lo which
her beauty, birth and talents of right entitle

To all Madame Le Vert'6 numerous admirers
it will be welcome news that she will

The wealthy French noble was not ruined

the young republic, but Paul Junes and

from Congress ; but flaym Salamon's
descendants have not to this day obtained
one dollar for the $300,000 which he advanced,
to his own ruin, for ^he salvation of
our country in its darkest hour of tribulation.
This is one of those mortifying chapters
in our national legislation which wo would
fain cover with the mantle of oblivion, were

The Senate Coramittco on Revolutionary
Claims has investigated this ease of llayin
Salarnon, and its exceedingly lueid and conclusive
report must go direct to the heart
of every man who has a spark of pride in
the fair dealing?we will not say liberality
or patriotic spirit, hut simply ihe common
business honestly?of our public servants.
Tlie^e are the facts of this unparalleled
case: Ilavtn Salamon, a Polander by birth,
and an anient Liberal in principle, had
made Philadelphia the home of Ins choice,
and at the opening of our war of independ
ence was a rich banker and a prosperous
merchant. Such a man was a prime ncces>ily
to tho Continental Congress. Ilis
European facilities and connections enabled
him to negotiate war loans in France and
Holland, and on such favorable terms as
have rarely been obtained by a feeble colony
in the early stages of revolt against a powerful
mother country. In one instance the
French agents received $60,000 as a fair
business commission for services similar to
those which Iiayin Salamon was rendering
Salamon also thought It was desirable to
make the hostility of Spain to England
available for the recognition and advancetiinnt
......... vi uui ii.uniiiiii independence, and
mainly through his -skillful management
Don Francisco Kendo was commissioned
l?y the Spanish government to reside near
Congress and carry out this policy. Documents
exists (o show that this euro)/ of
Spain was retained and supported here by
the liberal purse of Jlaym Salamon ; hut
for this no chargc was ever entered by the
patriotic banker. Again, there is evidence
under the hand of James Madison and
Robert Morris, that during the sessions of
the Congress of Independence, many of the
members were reduced to such pecuniary
distress that they would have been obliged
to return home, but for the open purse of
Ilaym Sahimon. Yet these accounts?
ranging between ?20,000 and 840,000 unpaid?are
not charged to the government.
The heirs only ask for the $300,000 advanced,
in each, for the it.dispensable operations
of the nrmv and government ; and

Petersburg, and installed as a butler to tlio
Grand Duke Paul, rose gradually to the
rank of equerry-in-waiting and to that of
baron ; at last he got the title of count under
the reign of his master. After the campaign
of Italy, in tlnf year 1799, when
SouvaroCf returned to St. Petersburg, Paul
did not display much feeling of propriety
in sending Koutaissoff" to compliment the
illustrious general upon his safe arrival.
The witty and sharp warrior said to him,
"Excuse, my dear count, an old man whose
memory slackens. I can recollect nothing
about the origin of your illustrious family,
or perhaps you got your title of count for
some grand victory ?"?"I never was n

every day, that you must give up drinking
and thieving, and you don't listen to me.
Now, look at that gentleman ; he has been

The Art of Taking Breatb.
A man wlio takes breath properly, will
fatigue himself less in speaking three or four
hours, as certain political orators do, especially
in England, than another in half an
hour; ami the orators who are able to speak
so long, aro cither inen who have studied
the management of their breath, or men
who speak much, but who speak well; for
in this eabo respiration regulates itself, without
separate thought, just as in couvorsu
nuii. mil a is tiy no moans the same when
one recites a discourse from memory, especially
if it is the discourse of another;
for in writing we take care, without being
j aware of it, to adjust the length of tho
periods to tho habitudes of our lungs. But
the exorcise in which it is most difficult to
hreath aright, as being that which is furthest
removed from the natural tone, is tho
exercise of reading; and it is remarked that
one is wearied much soouer by reading
than by speaking. There are few persons who
can bear half an hour of reading without a
slight inconvenience of tho organs; but
there aro many who can speak an hour
without trouble. The point of tho difficulty
is this, to time the respiration so as
always to take breath before it is exhausted.
For this purpose it is necessaiy to breathe
quite often, and to take advantage of little
rests in the delivery. 1l mi<rht l?r>
lest this necessity should injure the utternnco
aud mnko it frigid ; but, on the contrary,
the rests which aro thus employed by
one who is cxercised sa as to use them properly,
aro as expressive as the voice it&elf;
the slowness which they communicate to
tlio discourse is only that slowness which
gives more weight and vigor to the thought;
so this happy infirmity becomes an additional
is, lastly, by brenthingseasonably, that
the speaker will avoid a fault which is very
common and verj* great?that of letting
the voire fall at the end of sentences, which
renders the recitation at the same time indi-tinct
and monotonous. This is the abuse
of the rule which is pointed out by nature.
It is natural to lower the voice slightlv at
uio moment of finishing a sent once, at least
in mo>t cases ; for there are certain thoughts
which, on the contrary, demand an elevation
of the voice at the close. But the
fall is made too perceptible, and is taken from
too great a height, so that there aic often
three or four words which the hearer catches
with difficulty, or does not catch all. This
would be had enough, even without the
additional evil, that the expression is weakened
at the same lime with the voice. As
a general ride, the voice should he kept up
to the end of the sentence,' exec) ting only
that slight, depression, and, as it were, reflcction
which denote that the sense is terminated.
But to do this you must breathe
in time, as it is because tho lungs are exhausted
that you must lower the voice; for j
where there is no breath, there is no sound. !
The Angel in Dipguiso ; or, How to Choose
A beautiful young heiress had become so
disgusted with n. flattering set of soft-pated,
pomatuin-baired, moustached-lippcd, strongly
perfumed 6tiilor8 for her hand, that she
shut herself from the fashionable world,
turned all her property into money, deposited
it in banks, donned a cheap wardrobe,
put on a mask, and went, pedestrian like,
through the city, in which she had hitherto,
moved with so much display and magnificence.
She asked alms of those who of
late had knelt at her feet and sued for her
hand. They knew her not, am! casting a
look of scorn jjpon her veiled face and
coarse wardrobe, bade her begone. She
entered the country?hero she met with
derision and scorn. A few kind hearted
people, it is true, bestowed aid ; but these
were of the poorer class, who hnd hard work
to procure their own daily bread ; but they
could not turn a fellow creature hungry
from their door, and therefore gave a small
pittance from their scanty store.
One summer day, a largo company met
on Beach. They were mostly from
the city. The disguised heiress, from some
cause or other, had wandered there. She
asked alms of some termed "upper tens."
They spoke tauntingly, but gave nothing.
What they said had been heard by quite a
number of their company. Most of them
laughed, or looked as if they thought it
"served her right." The beggar-woman
turned about, and was walking sadly away,
when a good-looking gentleman stepped
forward, and catching hold of her arm, thus
"Stay, my good woman?tell mo what
She replied in a low, trembling (one, "I
want a sixpence?only a sixpence."
"You shall have ten times that slim.
IIere," he added, drawing from his pocket
an eagle, and placing it in the gloved hand
of the woman, "take this, and if it is not
enough, I will give you another."
The heiress returned the eagle, exclaiming,
"I want a sixpence?only n sixpence."
Seeing that sho could not be made to
take tho coin, the gentleman drew forth a
sixpence, and gave it to tho strange being
beside him, who, after thanking the generous
donor, walked slowly away. After being
laughed at for so doing by his comrades,
ha oat aiiI In c *' *
v/ov |>uiaun 01 me Deggar woman,
saying, "Perhaps she is an heiress?or an
angel in disguise?I mean to ascertain"
Not that he thought this. He wished
to show his influence to whnt his comrades
said, besides satisfying himself about the
strange'feinalo whom iio had aided. lie
soon 6vertook her, and addressed her thus:
"Pardon me, madam, for pursuing you, I
would know more about you."
As the speaker ceased, the mask dropped
from tho faee.pf the female, and the beautiful
heiress was portrayed before the astonished
Thai tjie? were ;f?ftertfards married, the
reader f>as already imagined, for the heiress
used this means of ptocuring a worthy husband,
and th^ generous^gentleman had long
uenii looicinfrior "an angfel in disguise."
The huppy husband is often heard to say
that be got ao "heiress for a sixpence."
