Egeria, the Maa? of Counsel.
Egeria is the Muse ef Counsel. She is
described as the mysterious nymph whc^
mel Kuma Pompilius, and taught bim bow
[ to govern. She met him always in soli
I tude, *nd Solitude is the nurse of Thought.
She met bim in the groves, which are
place's favorable to meditation. She met
him at Uv Hight, -when a certain calm
usually overspreads the soul-the passions
being in repose-and when the mind con?
sciously hovers, as it- were, between the
two worlds of Time and Eternity, in some
degree partaking bf both. Egeria is a
beautiful fancy of the old Tradition.
Thought ?nd .Study are beguiled to the
solitude, where '"Wisdom puts on the aspect
of Lore, for tie better persuasion of tbe
pupil. Through such, influences, we might
naturally expect that Coun?el should be at
once grateful and easy of attainment. "We
should, each of us, seek for an Egeria; for
JTuma, though a prince, was thus honored,
only because of bis attributes as ? man!
tl. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AUTHORITY AND
The Curaonn Sibyl, -who came to Tullus
Hostiliu?, bringing bim books for sale
nine at first, and afterwards reduced tc
three-was probably tl>e same person with
the Egeria of Numa Pompilius. She as?
sumed another character and a differenl
deportment, when dealing with a differenl
person. With the gent?o and modesi
Numa, she was a friend and counsellor
but the haughty pride of Tullus needed ai
authority, rather than an adviser. To tb?
one she ?poke as a companion; to the other
she brougbt a book of written laws. Ht
is undoubtedly the wisest person who sub
mits to aed receives counsel, but th
greater portion of mankind are net so easib
taught. To counsel or advise with their
is really to proroke self-esteem to dispe
tation. You must put on the aspect of a
oracle; never, like Is!*, peinait your ks
turee to be unveiled-and, Fpeakfng cu!
without suffering an answer, your cu'.hort1,
r-bal! pass without n question.
III. nOW TO FIND TOUR EGERIA.
You may find your Egeria-in ibe grov<
ic the garden,beside arv fountain, bowe??
modest, in the shade. Seek her in som?
quiet nook in Sydney Park, at dusk, or in
the cool air of the morning. Yexir search
must be successful, if you choose the right
companion for the search? If you tako
Vanity with you, or Self-Estcem, you will
encounter a serpent; a sleek, glossy reptile,
which may ba startlingly beautiful; yo?,
will be dazzled by bright colers, and fasci?
nated by magical eyes. . You will be fed
on subtleties, and will return homo only lo
brood over extravagant fancies, and delud?
ing hopea. If you take Humility along
with you, you commune with God him?
self. You will bc fed on celestial manna.
You will ba"imbued with faith, at once in
God and Humanity. You will be in?
formed with reverence. Your- heart viii
be soothed and softened to your kind. The
sense of the beautiful will be developed
within you, and you will extract nutriment
from the innocent things Around you.
Sweet Eongs will refresh you in tho bieath
of flowers; noble thought* will lift you in
the contemplation of ancient trees, and a
voice of grandeur, like tho speaking along
the great deeps, will thrill your sou),
through tb? ear, from the ever constant
rolling rapids of Cougaree.
