Residence on Spring Street. uiy^O’68 iUisccUamu SOMETHING DIVINE Maria Nosottl was the daughter of a farmer, hut became at a very early age the seivant of a sculptor of some celebrity in his day, named 1’ulei, who ha 1 removed lrom Florence to Home, to court inspira tion in the metropolis of art for a good work. He was a grave, serious man, and after having instructed Maria in the duties required of her, retired within himself, and allowed her to do pretty much as she liked ; so she governed his little house hold in her own way. She was a comely girl, of quiet manners, and soon became a favorite with all l’ulci's visitors. The The engraver, Savorini, was struck with love at lirst sight of her. and offered to make her his wife, but she replied calmly that she had outraged with Siginor l’alei to be his servant for three years, and could not think of breaking her engagement. “1 will find a substitute,” said Savorini, “I cannot be replaced,” she replied. The engraver called her a I’roserphine of pride, and his courtship ended for the time. One day l’ulci invited some of his friends to dinner, Savorini among the rest. The meal was taken in the studio, and the conversation naturally turned niton art. All spoke enthusiastically, for all were Italians, and were deeply devoted to their various departments. Savorini, who still retained a strong sentiment for Maria, and perhaps, wished to dazzle her (she was moving quietly to and fro performing her usual duties, but listening to all that was said with respectful attention,) rather ex aggerated the dignity and the privileges of the profession to which they all be longed. Kings and eraporers, the Hope himself, he said, ranked below great ar lists, aim it was netter to nave prouuceu that Diana, (pointing to a clay model which Pulci had just finished) than to guide the councils of nations. "1 place my aft,” he added, “not quite on an equality with yours, Signori, hut 1 own no superior except you, hut I also feel that 1 have a spark of something divine within me.” lie talked much in this strain, being ex cited by the good Lachryma Christi, and by the presence ot Maria. Although the girl admired what he said, she in no wise set it down to his account in the way he would have desired. She looked upon him only as an interpreter of truth, and went about the room, and backward and forward between it and the kitchen, pon dering whether she had not something of the spark ol the divine within her. “Yes, I have it,” she said at length. As she said this she pushed against Angela, an old dame who had come in to assist her in her duties, let go the dish that held the stew ed prunes, and broke it, splashing the rich red juice over her own white stockings. “Are they quite spoiled?” inquired Savo rini. She gave him a familiar push as if she was removing one of her father's heif ers out of the way. "Let her alone,” said l’ulci, "we must not punish her for her accident. Site has not chipped a statue or a model since she has been with me.” “I would rather break one of my own limbs,” she replied. "ISravo,” cried they all. and alter com plimenting her they went on talking of their art, as cheerily as if they hail not been disappointed id' stewed prunes.— Meanwhile Maria became more and more convinced that there was a spark of some thing divine within her. From that time she began in secret—in her own little room—to endeavor to pro duce some of the forms of beaiPv that Iilleil her mind. I he elay became lile-like in her hands; and in a very short time she almost started with'surprise at beholding a lovely countenance looking out from the informed mass which she had placed on her window sill. A natural fear of being ridiculed and repressed, prevented her from confiding her projects and her studies to her master. Hut her secret was too troublesome to be confided entirely to her self. At first she thought of the engraver Savorini; and possibly it would have been well had his honest love tound favor in her eyes. Hut the remembrance of his rough gallantries made her fearful of confiding m him. There was Caterina, the daugh ter of Angelina,—but when she came to gossip evenings, all her talk was about the handsome cavaliers who looked at her in church—impious men—and followed her home talking nonsense. This was not a proper confidante, so she chose old doc tor Corona, who had attended her in di nes, and had won her confidence by his benevolent manners. She went to him. made him promise secrecy as if she had been going to confess murder, and re vealed that she felt the power to become a great artist. ■•My lame will till the world : said she. “ltut will it till your heart ?” “That is full already—of hope.” He saw that she eame not formlviee but encouragement—and he encouraged her. He would have preferred had she told all to Master l’ulei; but that artist, though good and kind had something cold and sar tirieal in his manners. "He will never be lieve in me,” said Maria, “until he sees l can do something. He is not a man of faith. Besides, who will admit genius in the person who cooks one’s dinner! these hands that have made so many messes, can do nothing but spoil marble, he will think.” "She must take care," thought Corona, “not to deceive herself as to the motive that makes her unwilling to communicate her ambition to her master. If 1 mistake not, she wishes to dazzle him.” But the doctor was mistaken. Maria's whole being was from that time forward devoted to art, and art alone. It is true that she did not fail to perform her house hold duties ; but she did so mechanically, mil if Master l’ulei had been anything of a gourmand or a fidget, he would have found daily grounds of complaint. How ever, matters went on very well, and neith er he nor anybody else ever suspected that the girl had turned her bed-room into a studio, and that she was robbing herselt of sleep in order to make up for the hours necessarily lost in the day-time. Savori ni alone noticed that her cheeks grew pale, and her eyes gleamed with unnatu ral brilliancy. •‘Her soul is wearing out her body, doctor,” said he to Corona. The doctor assented sorrowfully, without dar ing to betrar the secret. Maria atterwards said that her life had begun only from the time when she per ceived the presence of the divine spark in her. All the former years faded from her remembrance. Her imagination became tilled with beautiful forms. Her ears were ever open to catch words of instruction from her master or his visitors. Her eyes greedily devoured the models that sur rounded her. She took Pulci’s books to her room, and learned all that they could teach her. Whenever she went forth, it was to some church or the vactican.to ad mire the achievements of the schools. At length she felt herself sufficiently pre pared to attempt original productions, and she began to model a statue of Minerva. A practical hand would probably have produced a result as good as hers in a much shorter time; but she was igno rent of routine, and many accidents retard ed her work. However, as time proceed ed the figure grew under her hands; and, day by day, the consciousness of her own genius increased within her. ller deter mination was to send the figure to the an nual competition for the prize—secretly— in order that she might hear the impartial opinion of the judges. The difficulties in her way were immense. Hut she over came them all; and when, one day, Master l’ulei was absent, some porters, sent by Dr. Corona, came and took away her mod el. Thus it was removed to tlie exhibi tion hall, w thout accident. Maria entered with the crowd on the ap pointed da*', and placed herself near to her statue." Her ambition did not extend to winning the prize. All she dared to hope was to escape ridicule. But her as tonishment was indescribable on perceiv ing by degrees all the connossieurs collect around her Minerva, and begin to speak enthusiastically in its praise. The judges stood belore it in their turn. Her heart swelled mightly within her, and it was with difficulty she could repress her pride and exaullion. These came to their height when the prize was unanimously given her statue; and a crier began to exclaim, “Let the sculptor of the Minerva declare himself!" It then struck her, in her con fusion, that a woman had no right to compete, and she hastened away unper ceived. Her object however was gained. She was now sure that she had not deceived herself by a false idea of her own merit, and she saw in the future a long series of triumphs. I>r. Corona, who had watched her, followed, and complimented her.— Even he had not dared to admire her work until public opinion had crowned it. He went with her to the studio of Pulci, and there she threw herself on her knees be fore her master and confessed the truth. He thought she was mad ; and it was not until L)r. Corona confirmed her statement that he could believe that his servant girl Maria had won the first prize of sculpture by the unanimous vote of the first artists of Home. The news soon spread through the city, and Savorini came hastily to compliment the young artist. She allowed him to em brace her, and listened gratefully when he said—“she must be at once raised from her menial capacity. It is impossible to deprive the arts of this wonder.” He did not now repeat his declaration of affection but he seemed to claim a right to watch over her future fortunes. Pulci at once agreed to look out for another servant: hut Maria refused to quit his house. “I will superintend everything still,” she said. 1 he three suppereu together pleasantly that evening, ami Savorini began the well known etching which represents Maria sitting at the feet of her Minerva, pausing in her work to admire it. Next day all the elite of Roman art came docking to hail their new comrade. For some months, indeed, the fashionable society of the city talked of nothing else but this pleasant story, and it became a popular opinion that Maria would equal or surpass the greatest masters. There was some ex aggeration in this. The causes which w ould have made them refuse to acknowl ekge her talent before her public triumph induced, them to magnify it now. Itseem ed so extraordinary that a servant girl from the Campagn di Roma could do any thing that people began to suppose noth ing was too great for her to perform. Even old N’osotti, Maria's father, undertook a journey to Rome for the purpose of seeing liis daughter, and looked in at St. IVtor's by the way. She received him with delight but shook her head when he suggested that she might now marry farmer Raimo neo. Savorini, who was by, ventured a hope on his own account, and he whis pered something in her ear. She smiled faintly, and giving him her hand, said— ••if you ask me again in six months I will sav yes 1” He did not understand. The truth was that the dovine spark was burning too fiercely within. In vain Dr. Corona exerted his art, and endeavored moreover to wean Maria for a while from the studio. The hectic flush and the bril liant eyes proved true prophets. Minerva was the only work of the ser vant Maria, who died on the twelfth ot May, eighteen hundred and one. THE EYE. THE EYE. 1>K. E.
