It wa.i ten in the morning, and I hud risen, when Dr. Elliott entered my apart- 1 ment. " Ah, Doctor, in a leebie voice, "you sec before you a poor young niari who is fast iroinr to the crave. I am surrounded by everything that wealth can purchase, hut at twenty-five j-eareofi age, have lost all sense ot enjoymei.t. .My existence is a burden and I only desire death. I have consulted the most emi nent phvsicians in London, but Uiey can do nothinir for me." "They were right, replica the iioc- tor, abruptly. 'Then must I die?" " Yes, undoubtedly when you are eigh ty 3-eiirs old. "Heavens ! do you know a remedy ? " " Perhaps, perhaps. Let me seej Sir Thomas, have you abused the pleasures which youth and fortune have procured for you " "l have usod them, but ncvor abused them." " What are your first thoughts upon awaking?" " Vague and undefined ! " "Have you ever been in love ? " " Alas ! I havo no btrength to lovo or liatc." " Do j-ou like the theatre ? " " It is a bore." " Do you like the pleasures of the ta- b!o 7 " " I have no appetite." " Do you enjoy the beauties of nature ?" 1 only see clouds and shadows. " Yoii are very sick but not incurable." " Do von believe it? " " I know it ; but you must make a great sacrficc. "What is that?" " You must renounce your country, your friends and the use ol yonr fortune. "You must forget that you are Sir Thorn. as Wcntworth and the immense wealth you possess. You mustgo to Switzerland taking with you only a hundred guineas to buy some goats and little cabin. You inut"live there for a year, breathing the pure mountain air, and labtir with the sweat of your brow to gain an existence, which all the diamonds ol the Indies can not purchase." " lou forget, 1 can not travel I nave no Btronirlli. " 1 will return. There exists in socie- tv a class of men among" whom your mil' lady is extremely rare. Those arc the poor, in their runKS vou must: miugie Depart, then as soon as possmie. Jtc- turn in a year and vou win return cured. There is but one plank between you and shipwreck ; renounce it, and you are a dead man. So saving, he took his hat, and polite lv wishing me a pleasant journey, and departed. I deliberated upon his advice, and con cluded to follow it. To my steward I gave directions concerning my anairs, and the next day embarked irom Dover, without acquainting any person with the object of my journey or my destination. I supported the fatigue of traveling better than I anticipated, although I gave up all hopes of ever looking upon my country or kindred again. Atter a journey of three weeks the snowy summits of the Alps rose before me. At this sight, I was seized with a profound sadness, and 1 felt sure that I should never leave them alive. I arriv ed at Heme in great dejection of spirits, and remained there two days to make my arrangements, and finally decided upon the valley of Lauterbrunn for in habitation. I rose at six, took a guide and began my march; but the grand and imposing scenes of nature were not in harmony with my physical strength, and what to others would havo been a source of unbounded pleasure, was to me a suffering. We stopped lor the night in the valley ot unndclwold, and in the morning, for the first time in many months. 1 had a good appetite. At sunset I arrived at my destination, and entering the first house, I asked the hospitality ot the inmates, winch was cheerfully accorded me. In the morn ing 1 asutucd a shepherd's dress, and left the friendly roof, not to enjov the charms of nature, but to indulge in my own sad reflections. 1 had taken but a few steps when I heard the sound of music, and the village rapidly filled with people to attend di vine service. The crowd proceeded to the church ami awaited in silence the entrance of the pastor, a venerable man insiring re spect and esteem. Hardly were the ser- vux-s concluded, when the flutes and hautboys were heard anew, and a young man and woman knelt before the altar and received the nuptial benediction. Happiness and gayetv shone on all laces. I glanced toward the seat ocenpied by the voung girls of the valley and oberv- ed one with her yea fixed uiion me. Her beauty was more delicate and noftle than that of her companions, and occasionally a tear would steal from beneath her eye lashes. Her sadness gave her an addi tional charm in mv eve. " Like me she is unhappy," I oajj; but happiness will soon smile upon her, whilo with me death only will pnt an end to my mher-." Acxt followed a ball, and two hundred young people daitrod merrily to the sound of the same instruments that wei heard in tho church Seeinif a utranas young shepherd reclining in tho shade of an ancient pine, some of the dancers 1 approached, and invited me to join in i their amusement j but I declined, and! they abandoned me to my own reflec tions. The young girl with whose beau ty I bad been so struck was not among the gay throng; she had disappeared im mediately upon leaving the church. After the rustic ball the girls, hand in hand sinirimr railv as thev went, advajio cd to the foot of a high hill, whose summit was covered with ice. All at once they started and rushed full speed up the slip-pen- eminence. They seemed like a troop of angels ascending to Heaven, But what was my "terror when they be gan to descend in the same rapid and perilous manner. With great speed they came springing down the declivity, their hair unbound and floating in the wind, while their lovers at the base of the hill, with tl.eir arms extended, re ceived them with innumerable kisses. - "Happy shepherds'!" I exclaimed, " how I envy yon ! " Upon arriving at the house I learned that my guide had purchased for me a dozen goats, and a little cabin upon one of the neighboring mountains. The transaction had consumed almost all my money and if 1 wished to live, I must labor like my new companions, no rich er than any of them. My dwelling was neat, and furnished with everything necessary for comfort ; a bench, a table, and a bed a little hard to be sure, but soli enough for the robust limbs of a tired shepherd. Jly first few days were frightful. Tho isolation in which I lived, the coarse fare, to which I was unaccustomed, the violent exercise in following my goats over steep rocks and precipices all combined to drive me to despair. Soon I had not strength to leave my cabin ; a burning fever consumed me, and my senses were lost in delirum. I remained ten days hovering between life and death. Some times believing myself in my own coun try, sometimes on a desert island pur suing phantoms that fled before me. Sometimes I seemed to sec at my bedside the voung girl whom I met at the church; but her sweet face was soon obliterated by others. Finally, after a lethargetic sleep, my rcason returned, I enqired, " where am I ? " A voice replied, " He is saved, he is saved ? I opened my eyes and I per- cdivcd two temales, one of middle age, who had uttered the cxlamation ; but the other, fresh as spring, and beautiful as a new liorn flower, gazed at me in silence. "These arc tho two angels, I said, in my own langnago. " that have saved my life." My words they could not under stand, but my sentiments I am sure they did. Mario and Laura, so called in the val ley were beloved by all the inhabitants of Lauterbrunn. They were delighted in good deeds, and often climbed the mountains to carry assistance to sick cot tagers. Their dwelling was not far from mine, and as soon as they learned of my illuess they hastened to tend upon me. Thanks to their care, I recovered, and became a frequent visitor at' their cot tage. Gratitude made it a duty, and love made it a necessity. I applied myself diligently to ihc study of their language, and with Mario and Laura, for instructors, I soon acquired great proficiency in it, and could con verse freely with the shepherds upon the mountains. Obliged, like them, to earn my own living, I soon began to value mj- hard-earned necessaries, and to for get the existence of luxuries. After a hard day's work I thoroughly enjoyed mv evening meal of coarse bread and goat's milk. My sleep was peaceful, and visions ot Laura danced through my dreams. I supposed that Marie and Laura were natives of Liauterbrunn. They wore tho costumes and spoke the language of the country : but 1 could observe a marked difference between their manners and those of the simple Swiss shepherdesses. The latter iwsscssed a charming natural ness and at the same time an air of rus ticity. Marie and Laurie possessed the same naturalness, but a high-bred refine ment and cultivation was mingled with it. Thev were calculated to adorn anv station, however exalted. In the meantime activity and the pure air of the mountains accomplished mira cles in my behalf. I climbed tho steep est rocK, and tho most slippery paths. I pursued the chamois into almost in accessible retreats, and leaping a fright ful chasm was a mere amusement. After being so feeble, I rejoiced in my strength, and accquired a wonderful vitality and energy. One day, I reached the snmmit of the Scheldeg, and contemplated the vast scenes around me high rocks, steep precipices, and apparently bottomless abysses; while far, far beneath me lay, in miniature the smiling valleys of Lau tcrelirunn and (rrindclwold. A lew light clouds hovered above the horison, and looked like floating mountains. I wa left in admiration of the glori ous scene, when suddenly a terrific noise like thunder 'reverberated through the mountains. This fearful sound increased and a thnus.ind echoes repeated it. 1 got safely out of the reach of tho avalanche. It began to descend with great rapidity, when 1 heard a piercing cry and 1 saw on a neighboring eminence a young wo man stretching her arms imploringly to wards me. I flew toward her and receiv ed the unfortunate girl fainting in my arms. I bore her from the dangerous spot. One moment more and I should havo been to late. It was Laura, and no other than Laura, whom I had rescued from death. I felt myself endowed with a new strength, and' carried her in mv arms without perceiving tho weight of my precious burden. I dashed down the mountain with the ability of a cham ois, never stopping to breathe until I reached the dwelling of Marie. Laura, tempted by the serenity of the atmosphere, had ventured upon the mowntain to collect sonid plants, and was surprised by the avalanche ia the midst of her occapatioa. After thU day 1 assumed the entire chare of Mane and Laanv. Qq 9 days aad fu4 days I escorted them tothje village and joined in the dance with the young people upon the ground. They were the happiest moments of my life, for I asked of lieav en no greater felicity than that of seeing Laura, every day. In the menatime my year of exile had nearly expired. My health was en tirely re-established, and to my expecta tions of death had sacccedcd all the hoc of friendship and love. 1 thought of my friends at home, but could not decide to leave a country to which 1 was indebted for the greatest oi all benefits, health : and besides, how could I abandon Laura? The principle events of our existence are independent of our will. Our do signs are at the mercy of circumstances, like a leaf at the sport pi the wind. 1 entered one evening the cottage of mv f neighbors, and found them both. in tears, Mane weeping in tne arms ot Laura, and saying "O, ray daughter, what will become of us? where shall wo take refuge? It I were alone, 1 could drag through the few days remaining to me, but I can not see vou suffer. " Do not despair, my dear mother," said Jiaura; "1 am well, and can work and support us both until that happy day shall come which will restore us to our country and right. Be consoled then, and do not be unhappy about my welfare." This scene made so deep an impress ion upon me, that I was no longer mas ter ot myself, and entreated them to ac quaint me with their misfortunes and 1 would shed my last drop ot blood in their cause. Laura burst into tears and exclaimed "soon we must part forever." " Forever, Laura ? 1 would rather die a hundred times. No, I will abandon you with my life." " It is necessary," she continued. "Heaven and man have decided, and we must separate. We are compelled to fl3- from the peaceful country, where 1 had begun to know happiness. 1 con fess it before God, you arc the only per non here 1 regret leaving." At these words 1 fell upon my knees before her, and pressing her hand to my lips, exclaimed, not knowing what 1 said, " Laura, 1 will follow you every where, your destiny shall be mine. 2 here swear to love you eternal ly." "Stop," saiif Marie, stepping between us, "Tom, my daughter can never be yours." The rank our family occupied in France forbids it. Would to Heaven we had been bom in this shining vallcy where the same fortune, the same educa tion, would have made ns equal. Hut it is not so. Laura is daughter of the Count de Blanville. The blood which flows in her veins is illustrious. She can not dishonor it by allying herself to a poor shepherd. Misfortunes attendant upon a terrible revolution have expatriated us and deprived us of our estate. M. de Hlauville was massacred before my eves, and 1 escaped from Franco not that 1 cared for my own life, but to save iny daughter from the axe of the execution er. I believe that in this retired part of Switzerland I had secured a peaceful re treat, where the storm could no longer break upon us;butlv deceived.' A decree from the republic ot Heme com mands all French emigrants to quit Switzerland, and allows them but three days to seek another asylum. Alas! in what part of the world can we find a shelter from our persecutors ? " At these words she burst into a tor rent of tears, and I approached her re spectfully and said : " lhe poor Tom is not worthy or be ing the husband of Laura, but whatever may bo the place ot your exile, do not forget one who will never forget voir." 1 left the cottage not trusting myself to look again at Laura. The next morn ing at sunrise I started for Heme, where business detained mc for two days. Immediately upon my return I called at the cottage of Madame de Hlauville, to renew my offers of assistance and to say farewell. Laura looked pale and sad but her mother greeted me with a f:ce radiant with joy and showed me a letter just re ceived from Berne. It was as follows: "Man we.. A mn to wrmm vj tore anonnsHons ly reoder.il a iuo4t imimrtsst rvice. It ts Jn.t become apprised or sour cruel -itualloo. 1'emi.t h'mtooSer you an aivlum in his country.

I am. very reie:t fully. Madame, 1hos. Lxraomit " It is from Heaven," cried Madame de Blanville. "How could I doubt the goodness of Providence ? I have tried in vain to recall this Sir Thomas Wcnt worth, but I am sure this is the first time I ever heard his name. There is something very extraordinary altout it. What do you think of it, Tom ? What do you advise mc to do; " If yon would begin, Madame, to take the counsel from a shenherd vo.i will ac cept the offer of Sir Thomas Wcnlwurth. Circumstances are pressing and require it- He Kin have no motive lor deceiving vou, and I believe him honeat; ana an honest man always regards his promise. " Hut we do not know him. " When you see him you may re-og-nize him, and if yon have forgotten the service you have rendered him, it is very plain that he has not." Daring the scene I glanced at Lanra. She did not partake of the joy of her mother, bat was rapt in aaelancholv. I approached her, and taking her -2-"i said: " Oh. Laura, how haiiDV is SirThomas; he can offer you an asylum and console voo." "Console sae! oh, Tom, the death of my father and our separation are mi fortanes for which 1 can never bo con soled." The next dar Madame de Blanville and Laara left the valley. Tho instant for their departare ws the signal for min We took difcrml roctes. Thev dared not pass throagh France but made a circuitous tour through Germany and UoUaad. I, aot rearing tHe-axe 01 me executioner, and desirous to soon as possible, passed directly throan France and was soon in England, await- ing with an indescribable impatience the moments when I could welcome the two beings so dear to me. One morning I was alone in my libra ry, thinking of Laura, and bitterly re gretting that I ever lost sight of "her, when my servant announced the arrival of two strangers. When I entered the drawing-room Madame and Mandamoiselle approached me with grace and dignity. The e-es of Laura were modestly cast down, but I noticed traces of deep sadness upon her brow. Her mother's anxiety of mind, my change of costume, and tho luxuries by which I was surronudud, all prevented her recognition of me. She placed in mv hand the letter she had received from Berne. 1 took it and pre tended to read it. " Yes, Madame, it is I who offered you an asylum. My house, my fortune, my life, all that I tiossess is yours. 1 prom ised you the respect, the attention of a son for the most tender parents. I will keep my word even if your daughter should refuse to unite her fate to thai of the poor shepherd Tom." At these words a vivid flush mantled upon the checks of the young girl. She raised her astonished eyes and cried : " Good God ! it isToiii ! Tom himself." Her surprise, that of Madame tie Hlau ville, and my own transports of joy, pre vented me from describing the scene that ensued. I can onlv leave it to the imag ination of the reader. In a few days Laura became Lady Wcntworth, ami for three years I have been the happiest of husbands. Every thing is bright about me, and all nature is smiling, and every day I thank Heav for having preserved an existence so fill ed with charms. To Dr. Elliot I am in debted for all my felicity. With agreea ble duties nnd pleasures, mj- whole time is occupied, and I have not experienced a moment of cnmiisincc 1113- departure from Switzerland. Blunders of Painters. Tiiitorct, an Italian Painter, in a pic ture of the children of Israel gathering manna, has taken the precaution to ami them with the modem invention of guns. Cigoli painted the aged Simeon at the circiiniscissionof the infant Saviour; and as aged men in these da3-s wear specta cles, the artist has shown his sagacity b placing them on Simeon's no.se. In "a picture bj- Verrio, of Christ healing the sick, the lookers on are represented standing with periwigs on their heads. To match or rather to exceed this ludi crous representation, Duer has painted the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden b3 an angel in a dress fashionably trimmed with flounces. The same painter in his m-ene of Peter delay ing Christ repreicnts a Roman soldier very comfortably smoking a pipe of t bacco. A Dutch painter, in a picture of the Wi-e Men worshiping the II0I3- Child, has drawn one of them in a large white surplice, and in boots and spurs, and he is in the act of presenting to tho child a model of a Dutch man-of-war. In a Dutch picture of Abraham offering up hisson, instead of the patriarch's stretch ing forth his hand and taking the knife, as the Scriptures inform u, he is repre sented as using a more effective and mod em instrument, he is holding to Isaac's head a blunderbuss ! Berlin represents in a picture the Virgin and Child listening to a violin, and in another picture he has drawn King David playing the harp at the marriage ot Christ with M. Cather ine. A trench artist has drawn with French taste the Lord's Supper, with the table ornamented with tumblers filled with cigar lighters; and, as if to crown the list of these absurd and ludicrous an achronisms, the Garden of Eden is drawn with Adam and Eve in all their primeval simplicity and virtue, while near them. in full costume, is seen a hunter with a gun, shooting dnclcs." BSt-O-1 Among the curiosities at the French fair, now open in Boston, are the table on which (jeorgo Washington drew Ins plans for the battle of Trenton, the night before the contest ; autograph letters of Cromwell, John Adams, Sir Isaac .New ton, cllmgton and 3Irs. .Sarah bullions ; manuscript poems of Hubert Burns and Dean Swift; a libnny chair of Xapolcon I, and a pair of boots worn b- him ; the roster of John Brown's company- tako'i at Harpers Ferry; a helmet of Lord B--ron, given to Dr. S. G. Howe in Greece; ono of George Ill's breakfast plates; a plate and candlestick that come over in the JIayflowcr;a Damascus scimctar; an Arab sword of the first century after Mahommcd ; a fine collection of S.tlem witchcraft relics, including the death warrant of Bridget Bishop ;fho idaffwith which George Jacobs walked to the gal lows, and a number of pins sworn to havo been stuck into people 113- the witches. The Chicago TVifcane criticises Com missioner Parker's proposals for Indian goods on account of the condition, "that the supplies advertised for must be de livered at the agencies, and there inspect ed, all rejected article being, of coarM:, thrown back on the hands or the con tractor, at a point where their value h.i been doubles!, trebled or quadrupled by transportation charges in short, where the rejection of a contractor's g,Kds would bring ruin upon him.

In 1825, while at Washington, I re ceived an invitation from Mr. Clay to dinner. Two daj-s afterward the porter Ot tvaaauys Hotel, whore 1 wasta3ing, said to me : ' I hope you will accept Mr-. Clay's invitation, sir!" I said : How do 3ou know I had an invitation from Mr. t;iay:' "tjb, sir, the letter came through the office ; and we all know Mr. Clay's handwriting." He repeated his hope that I would go, and added, gentle man sometimes come to asuingtono n business without bringing their dress- coats with them.

The porter, who Was evidently an obsev ing and sagacious man, had divined the truth. I not onlv had not brought a dress-coat, but I tiid not possossonc to bring, and really was regretting the no cessit3 of decliniug the invitation for that reason. But the porter urged his oners with such kindness and delicacy that I accepted both the coat and the in vitation. Gen. Jackson in 182S succeeded Mr. Attains as president, rrom that time until 1840, during the administration of Jackson ami Van Buren, a period of twelve vears, 1 was not again m Wash- mgtoii. In tho Inter year, upon the election ol Gen. Harrison, I again visited the cit-; and, in passing through the Treasury department, I encountered mv old friend Brad-, the thoughtful porter whoso coat I had worn to Mr. I. lav e dinner, with whom I exchanged a vcry no.irtv greeting. Jfe informed me that he had received a clerkship in the de partment from Gen. Jackson ; but, as the "spoils belonged to the victors, heiiow expected to loose his place. After parting with his, I went to the hccretnrv of the Treasury and related to him the peculiar obligations under which I had formerly placed myself to the friendly porter, ail ding, what I was quiet sure he would ti ti 1 true, that he was a very capable and faithful clerk. The Secratary was a mused at the nature of the obligation 1 had incurred 3-cars before, and checrfuly consented to retain 1113- trieud 111 his sit uation. In the j-ear 1843, while again at Wash' ington, I). D. Barnard, our representa tive from Albany, invited me to dinner, His "mess" consisted of John Grieg, of Cannndaigua ; Henn- Van Rensselaer, of Ogdensbiirg; and Jared Iugersoll, of Philadelphia a very select and refined circle, all being gentlemen of high nocial positon. When tho dettscrt wa.i about to be brought on, it being an exceeding hot day, Mr. Grieg, suggested that we should move to tho veranda, where wo could ouj 03 the cool breeze of tho ha-, In going from the dining room to the ver anda, I discovered in tho person arrang ing the tabic mv old friend Hradv, with whom I cordially shook hands. I learn ed from tho brief question which I put to him that he was the host ot tho house, and that these members of Congress were his guests. As .soon as he retired, I commenced relating tho storvof the coat, Which my t.vdidious mend, .Mr, Karnurd, attempted to interrupt, from a sense ot horror that a Iriend whom lie had honored with an invitation to dinner should voluntarib confess that he had worn n iiotci-Kcccr s drcss-cont to n dinner with the Secretary of tho State. Mr. Ingersoll's susceptibilities seemed also to be disturbed ; but Mr. Grieg, one of "Nature's noblemen," and Mr. Van Rensselaer (the latter an accomplished son ofthe"old patroon," and son-in-law ot the late John II. King), enjoyed the storv immensely, and insisted unonhav ing Bnuly called in to give his version of the incident.
