Her Km ly Life. Maciame Kistori vvasbornatCivitatti b'rluli, in the year lb'M. Her latner, Antonio ltie ori. anci her mother, MadJaleua 1'omareUi, belonged to the Cavicchi troupe a travelling company, whose performances extended over a circuit ol numerous cities in Italy, their lite full of adventure, and too often, ala! renew ing the episodes of the "Roman comique " IShe made her first appearance on the boards at tho early age of two mouths, when she wai introduced in a basket in a play called iV 'io Fear' U'jis. At her fourth year she com menced to play children's oartj, which she continued to do successfully till she wiw twelve jears of atre. At this time she was engaged, by the celebrated actor and director Monealvo, to sustain the roles ot soubrctte and similar characters. Two years later ebe was mtrusled with the part ot ".Francesca di liiminl,'! in the tragedy of that name; and the impression she made in that character decided the future of her life. She now began to un derstand tho diilicnlties that beset her position in any attempt to advance In the study of the dramatic firt. It was, therefore, with heiri telt pleasure that she abandoned ber wander ing life, and availed herself of an opportunity to join the company of the Kin:? of Sardinia, under the directorship of Gaetano Bazzl, tho most intelligent of all the Italian managers, jind the author of tho best work on dramatic declamation that exists in Italy. Uosides im proving under tho counsels of this enlight ened master, Adelaide found among her new companions the most mo herly affection and the lessons of an excellent prolessor, la th e adm'rable actress Carlotta M.irehioni. After Madame Mnrchioui retired from the stage, in 1812, Kistori continued to be the ornament ot the Sardinian company, which now included Amalia liestini, one of the most brilliant. stars ot the Italian stage. In the subsequent year she engaged with the Ducal Company of Parma, wu se chief attraction then was Antoinette Robolti, with whom Mad'lle Kistori pei formed for some lime. Jt was at the theatre ol Livorno that Mad'lle Uisfori made her first creations, and from 1814 to lSl'J she proved herself to be simply one of the most accomplished come diennes in Italy. It was only at a later period that a new phase in her life revealed her real genius, and placed upon her brow the diadem if the tragic muse. Wnicli to this day sparkles with so much brilliancy. After having studied and personated with great succesi tho principal characters in the companies of Marchioni, of Uettini, and of Ilobotti, she became the equal of these cele brities, and sustained all the leading parts in the higher walks of the drama and comedy, and wiih a superiority never contested, until an event of great importance in the life of the trvficdicnnc served to in. -reuse fie public interest in her history . TIic Mnrria.c In lS4t) she was privately man ied to the Marquis (Japrenuca Uruli, the heir ot one of the noblest Koman ducal lamilies. The noble famdy first objected to the mcxallianw, bat afterwards when the genius of liistori had indicated itself were glad to welcome the distinguished and successful heir. The charms of her new lile could no; long repress her passion lor the stage, and availing herself of an opportunity to save a poor manager from imprisonment for debt she gave liree repre sentations for his benefit, which were success lul beyond any ot her prior achievements. Iler temporary withdrawal from the stacre had given her lime for reflection, study, and observation, and the interval was nobly im proved. Ilev Studies. She had not yet essayed the higher forms of tragic representation, in which the lull power of her genius was to be developed. Her first ellort was in 1S48, at the time when the French were besieging Home, when she personated "Myrrha." The real tragedy then enacting was too absorbing in iis interest to allow of any diversion of public attention to mimic woes. At the teimina'ion ot the war liistori undeitook a new study of "Myrrha," under the auspices ot an experienced artist Madame Caroline Jutunari the result of which is "Myrrha," as she now impersonates the character "an impersonation so extra ordinary that Niobe. in her depth of woe. could not appear more chaste Medea, in her great revenge, more sublime or Venus, in the rage of her love, more beautiful." Appearance 1 u Paris. At the head of the Iloyal Company of Sar dinia, Uistori visited all the principal cities in Italy, until the year 1855, when the project was entertained ot going to raris. i ne Count di liossi Federigotti, the possessor of a liberal fortune sufficient to carry out his enterprise, wished to organize a company of the best Italian artists, watt llistorias the chief attraction, for the purpose ol giving a series of performances in l aris during the Great Exhibition. Unfortunately the plan was not carried on to completion, and betng abandoned, it was determined that liistori and M. Riquetti should visit Paris on their own responsibility. Kistori made her first appearance in Paris on the 22d ot May, at the Italian Opera House, in the character of -Prancesca di Itimini. When the curtain fell the star oi Rachel went down tho sky, and that of liistori shown with the brightest effulgence. The audience that greeted the debut was not a very large one, as.but tow persons had the idea that so brilliant an artistic luminary was to take us place m me theatrical firmament By chance only Alexander Dumas, Eugene .Scribe, and Jules Janin were present. On the next day the tormer wrote : "Last night I was at the representation of "Prancesca di Rimini," at the Salle Vetadour. 1 looked round the theatre, out uiu not see itactiet. I beg that she will go and see how the death scene is ncrformed." M. Scribe called imme diately on Kistori, and, iu her absence, left his card, on which he inscribed : "Eugene Scribe, in acknowledgment of his admiration for Madame liistori, and with thanks for the great pleasure he experienced last night." Jule9 Janin was the most enthusiastic iu her fnvnr. "liistori. Histori I" ne wrote, "she l the rage ot tho day ! She is tragedy itself. She is comedy itself. She is the drama. She reigns she governs she commands, and the crowd obeys." The result of the first appearance proved Kistori had not over-cstimatea ner pow em tn rnnauer the sympathies of France, Each succeeding representation was but a fresh triumph, and sucn repeatca cans oeiore the curtain were Li'.herto unknown in the cor.Ury. Tie raptur" and admiration of tho jnhiie wi'ie wily .laintly symbolized by the numerous showers of iicrni gifts nod crowns thrown at l.er feci. The Act! 11 R. It has been said by the French critics that no one except a French Catholic could imper sonate the scene at tin- Contertsiona., and de pict, as liistori does, the solace to the wounded near: and the lonsoMtious of hope which Bteat over her as she confesses her er ors to the listening ear ol the holy father, and le lieves m rho efficacy of tbe absolution she receives Irorn him. Every trace of mind every shade of thought, from the mental Mr ture that n'llict? her before confession, to the serenity, tha calmness, and the resignation thatehaiiicteiiz-j her afterwards is depicted by Ristori with the most delicate attention. The blending ot tints, and tho presentation of each particular nnaucc. intermediate to the darkness ot mind in the early part of the scene, and to the tranquil sunshine that seems to beam upon it when the queen presses the crucifix to her lips, in the belief that her sins arc pardoned and happiness 6ccurcd, is wonderful. The scnsaiion produced by Mary Sturart was so great that tho Itev. Father Veuillot, tho chief editor of the Ultramontane journal L'Univcr. paid a vist to tho Italian theatre to see P.istori's impersonator! of "Mary Stuart." So astonished was the good man, that, contrary to tho rules of his journal, and notwithstunding that he was liable to give oll'ense to his religious readers, he wrote a very remarkable article on the great trajc dieane, taking care to confess in a postcript, however, that a theatre was not tho proper place for him to go to, and that he wa in duced to visit it solely by the intensity of his curie s!ty. By the French press a comparison has been made betwicn the two chief tragic actresses of modern times in their performance of the same character "Mary Stuart." A well-known cr.tic has pronounced the following opinion of the relative merits of liachel and Itistoii in their representations of the unfortunate Queen: "Uhez Vuneily a la hauteur chcz Vaulre Velevaiion." Rachel loses sight ot the susceptibility of the woman's heart when she portrays the Queen's anger. Kistori renders that aieer ten times more grand by depicting it as tbe anger of a devoted woman, whose position is that of majesty. The first season euded on the 10th of Sep tember. S'ie gave thirty six performances, the gross receipts oi which amounted to half a million ot francs. This success was so grati Ijing that liistori secured the theatre lor the three follow ing years. During her residence iu l'iiris bhe was the recipient of many gene rous testimonials ot the et-timation in which she was held by the most enlightened artists and literati ol the country. Innumerable por traits were made of her stai.uottes were issued in abundance, and busts were in every window and on every table. A medal was struck in her honor, and the imperial appre ciation of her talents was teftitied by the gilt of a gorgeous diamond bracelet bearing the inscription, "Napoleon HI to Adelaide Kis tori." But what she prized above all was, that Ary Schetler, the greatest of modern French painters, offered to paii.t her portrait, wh"ch alone would insure tnat Kistori's name should go down to posterity, acquiring additional in terest lrom the tact that it is the painter's last woik, and not even quite completed, as t ie drapery is not finished, the painful death ot the artist interposing to prevent Ins much chcriifced desire. 1 tl Kiitaitl. During the recess of the Parisian seasons Kistori visited England twice, and performed there with a success only equalled by that which crowned her efforts in fans. S!;o was patronized by Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, and the eulc ol lue ansto.-racy. tier per- lorinances vied iu splendor and attractiveness with the crand operatic representations at the lioyal Italian Opera. Indeed, tho opera lailcd, while the performances of liistori at tracted crowds such as Jenny Lind used to draw, and at prices little less inferior. To the sensation created oy tne pcriorm- ances of the great Italian in London, there was added an intensity ot interest when she was to appear in Shakespeare's Macbeth and n Lltzabeit. Ilcr t'niciv la Sjinlii, KiiNla. C.t'riituiiy, ami iVitcr having visited the principal cities of trance and England, Kistori continued her riumphaui career through Spain, Germany, and Russia. The costly presents that she re leived frcin the sovereigns of these countr.es, oi course, aic very numerous ; but some, in dependent of their value, are more highly i nzed by tier tnan peans or rubies, ine Einpresi of Russia gave her the diploma of a Lady of the Talace: the Empress of Austria nominated her as her "Reader;" and the Queen of Prussia presented to her an album, on the fly-Ieat ot which she wrote : "'The Queen of Prussia to Madame liistori." Rut the most honorable distinct ion that frhe received is the Order of Merit from the King of Prussia, saspemled from a costly gold bracelet, accompanied by a royal rescript authorizing her to wear it. Histori is the lirst and only woman that has ever been thus "decorated." Ilcr Chnrni tcr. There is another point in the history of Histori that lends a charm to her character. It is that unexceptionable private lite, with out which no public character can command the respect ot society and the world. In this she ranks with Jenny Lind. whose name has justly become a synonym of social purity. Kistori, too, like her, is known tor her un bounded charity, particularly to those who have devoted their talents aud lives to the tine arts. Mie is always ready to draw from her wealth, lor those worthy amortunate ones who Have not been Messed with pros perity. This has distinguished her, in what ever country slip has sojourned. An accom plithed linguist, she mingles iu the highest society wherever she goes. Iu this respect, like the late lamented Madime Sontag, who knew how do divide ths line between her artist lite and that of a lady ot title and rank, she never fails to grace either position that she mav be called on to occupy. It should not be forgotten, also, that she played no smalt part m Italian history during tho lust three or iour years, a warm ir end ship existed between her and the late Count Cavour, with whom she was not only on terms of social int imacy, but of a more enno bling friendship, keeping up with that distin guished statesman a regular correspondence, a part of which may be found in hU corres- Sondence, recently published at the Royal mprimeiie, 'J urin. under the editorial super vision ot his brother. Among these letters may be seen one in which Count Cavour thanks her lor her valuable services to the Italian cause at the Court of Ut. Petersburg, ine veneration t,ne entertained lor ttie re generator ot Italy was the cause of a conflict between ber and the authorities of Pans, in 1801. She was there, play ing, at the peiiod when that great statesman's death was announced, and from whom, a few days before, she had received a most flattering letter. When the sad new9 was promuigatad, Kistori tauscd a notice to bo placed in front of the theatre, sUting that ner performaaoes were suspended in consequence of his de cease. This was not agreeable to tho au thorities in Paris, and tho police compelled her to remove the placards lrom tho vesilbule. 1 hln act so offended her that she at once de termined not to appear in the city again, and In May, 1802, she actually performed at Ver B!illes, and excursion trains between the city and Paris were estab list ed, to give tho Pari sians opportunities to enjoy her perform ance. Two very charming children now reflect the virtues and the talents of their mother, whose attention to them is characterized by the very highest display of maternal love. Their presence near her seemi to produce upon her an electric effect, and to inspire her to exertion In her artistic triumph. The children never quit their mother. They arc to bo seen in tho theatre when liistori acts, and their happy, smiling faces, beaming with joy at her success, doubtless affords her more pleasurable encouragement than all the plaudits, bouquets, and bravos which are lavished upon her. It Is for them that she now purposes to visit America, intending, at the conclusion of her tour, to retire from public life. TO RENT. p O R RENT.
