Daring Mr. Jefferson’s law course of live years he usually spent the summer months at home, atShadwell, where the rest of the family continued to reside. The systematic industry of his college life continued. Notwithstanding the time given to company, lie contrived to pass nearly twice the usual number of hours of law students in his studies. lie placed a clock in his bed room, and as soon as he could distinguish its hands in the gray of the summer morning he rose and com menced his labors. In winter, he rose punctually at five. His hour of retiring in summer, in the country, was nine—in the winter at ten. At Shadwell, his stud ies were very little interrupted by com pany. He usually took a gallop on horse back during the day, and at twilight walk ed to the top of Monticello. An hour or two given to the society of his family, and the favorite violin, completed the list of interruptions, and still left fourteen or fifteen hours for study and reading. \\ it li Mr. Jeflersou, the lover succeeded the schoolboy in the due and time honored order, as laid down by the “melancholy Jacques." The only record of this affair is to be found in a series of letters ad dressed by him to his friend, John Page, commencing immediately after heleft col lege, and extending, at intervals, through the two succeeding years. These are to tie found at length in the Congress edition of his works, and also in his life by Pro fessor Tucker. They possess some inter est, perhaps, in relation to their subject matter, but most, as the earliest specimens of their author’s epistolary writing which have been preserved. 'Though they dis play some of that easy command ot lan guage—that “running pen"—for which he was afterwards so celebrated, they exhibit no peculiar grace of style, or maturity of thought. Perhaps, however, these would scarcely be expected in the careless, off hand effusion of boyish intimacy. It causes a smile to seethe future statesman “sighing like furnace" in a first love; concealing, after the approved fashion of student life, the name of his mistress un der awkard Latin puns and Greek ana grams, by burying a secret which the world, of course, was supposed to have a vast interest in discovering; delightedly describing happy dances with his “Belinda" in tin- Apollo (that room of the Raleigh tavern where we shall soon find him act ing so different apart;) vowing the cus tomary desparing vow, that “if Belinda will not accept his service, it shall never be offered to another;" and soon to the end of the chapter—in the well beaten track of immediate prescription. The ob ject of his attachment was a Miss Rebecca Burwell, (called Belinda, as a pet name, or by way of concealment,) whom tradi tion speaks of as more distinguished for beauty than cleverness. His proposals seem to have been colgged with the condition that he must be absent for two or three years in foreign travel be fore marriage. He several times express ed thisdesign, specifying England, France Spain, Italy, Egypt, and a return through the northern British provinces in America, as his proposed route. Why he gave this up does not appear. Whether for this, or because her preferences lay in a different direction. Miss Burwell somewhat abrupt ly married another man in 17K4. Mr. Jefferson was generally, however, rather a favorite with the other sex, and not without reason. His appearance was engaging. llis face, though angular, and far from beautiful, beamed with in telligence, with benevolence and withthe cheerful vivacity of a happy, hopeful spirit. His complexion was ruddy, and delicately fair; his reddish, chesnut hair luxuriant and silken. His full, deep-set eyes, the prevailing color of which was a light hazel, (or flecks of hazel on a groundwork of gray) were peculiary expressive, and mirrored, as the clear lake mirrors the cloud, every motion which was passing through liis mind. He stood six feet two and a half inches in height, and, though very slim at this period, his form was erect and sinewy, and his movements dis played elasticity and vigor. He was an expert musician, a line dancer, a dashing rider, and there was no manly exercise in which he could not play his part. His manners were unusually graceful, but simple nml cordial. His conversation already possessed no inconsiderable share of that charm which, in after years, was so much extolled by friends, and to which enemies attributed so seductive an influence in molding: the young ami the wavering to his political views. There was a frankness, earnest ness and cordiality in its tone—a deep sympathy with humanity—a confidence in man, and a sanguine hopefulness in his destiny, which irresistibly won upon the feelings not only of the ordinary hearer, but of those grave men whose commerce with the world had perhaps led them to form less glowing estimates ot it-—ot such men as the scholar-like Small, the saga cious IVvthe, the courtly and gifted Far ipiier. Sir. Jefferson's temper was gentle, kindly and forgiving. It' it naturaliy had anything ofjhat warmth which isthe usual concomitant of affections and sympathies so ardent, and it no doubt had, it had been subjugated by habitual control. Yet under its even placidity, there were not wanting those indications of calm self reliance and courage which all instinctively recognize and respect. There is not an instance on record of his having been engaged in a personal rencontre, of his having suffered a pi rsonal indignity. Possessing the ac complishments, he avoided the vices, of the young Virginia gentry of the day, and a class of habits which, if not vices them selves, were too often made the preludes to them. He never gambled.
