When he made his first European tour it is said the keepers had to remove him late one evening, so wrapt was he in the beauty and symmetry of the Yeuus de Medici. His tastes were essen tially tor the beautiful. What men of a low er order pronounced perfect Wilkins said was trash, and by this sort of criticism lie gained a reputation as quite a connoisseur in every thing relating to the highly artistic. .After bis continental peregrinations lie returned to this city, and, captivated by the winsome manner of the accomplished Miss-, was soon caught iu the web matrimouial, ami the services of a well-known rector securely ent off the bachelor day3 of the dilettante Wil kins. He bad a great fondness far the dra ma; indeed, there was hardly a matinee but what the nicely combed head and twisted moustaches of our friend could be seen in sol emn dignity either scornfully turned towards the stage or blandly moved iu the direction of some belle in the dress circle. Yesterday, he told his little wile that he thought, perhaps, if business engagements would allow him, and there was nothing pressing to engage his time, that lie might, prooably, possibly ' drop in at the Varieties lor a iew moments at noon to liston to the ballads of Dixon. Punctually at the opening of the doors he was on band, and after procuring a particular ly couspici ous seat, waited the arrival of the fairer portion of the audience. The house began to till, and Wilkins’s opera-glass was kept busy inspecting the late additions of beauty, as one after another they entered and were seated. One lady in particular attract ed the concave lenses of Wilkins's lorgnette —a petite figure, stylish in dress, and with something of hauteur in manner, sitting not far distant from him, Through her veil he could catch the sparkle of her brilliant eye and its folds showed the ou time of a face fit tor a modal. He thought he must have seen the lady somewhere. Probably on the Corso in Rome, or in a pass ing gondola in Venice; but one fact was cer tain, that eye lie bad seen. The orchestra played the overture, the curtain rose, but neither the wit of the minstrels nor the pathos of’.lie songs had any attractions for Wilkins. lie eyed the lady—she returned his glances. This was enough. Every alternate minute he would turn toward his syren and with the most killing look endeavor to ex press his deep emotion. The reception of his actions was such as to cause his heart to accelerate its pulsations, and almost beside himselt lie gave a small boy a nickel to carry to the lady a note written on the white ed^e of a programme. It ran thus: Do you remember me? I have seen you be fore. Will you reuew our acquaintance? W. The boy took the note, and back came the missive underwritten, l'I am yours.” The footlights seemed to rise up to the ceiling, and the two end men, by some optical de rangement, became as ot one flesh.

Nominally Picturesque. By Ifrury Block bum. Author of "Art in the .Mountains.*’ etc., etc. Although we may not be able to visit Nor mandy in person, yet we may all visit it with Mr. Blackburn in his delightful book called “Normatiuy Picturesque.” Mr. Blackburn being an Englishman, :s thoroughly English in his tastes and feelings. But he does not allow his prejudices to provent him from por traying in an artistic,vivid and withal faithful manner the country of Northern France. He makes us see the “quaintest nooks and cor ners.” His description of a market-morning at Point Audemcr is a very lia >py one; a cav alcade coming down a hill from which there it a beautiful view over town and valley—the men with their brown coats aud picturesque hats—the women with their starched caps a foot higti, and the maidens with their fresh morning faces glowing under wonderful white caps—“souffles of ri ost fantastic shape and startling dimensions.” It is a restful picture notwithstanding it is a busy market morning. In architecture, Cathedrals of the 13th cen tury, and houses built in the 14th aud 15th of the Gothic style, please the spectator in search ot the antique, as well as the artist in search of the picturesque. But the reader must see for himself that a true artist can use the pen to as good advantage as the brush;. and these delightful pen pictures are quite as interesting as they are instructive.
