Joim RandolpU or Koanoke. A GRAF-UIC SKETCH AND STRIKIXG CONTRAST. Some forcible writer furnishes the New York "Century" a highly interesting arti cle on the ekxiuent, but very eccentric John Randolph called by one 4the abor tive thud of talent and notoriety. v e extract the following in reference to his singular appearance and peculiarities : "Let ine introduce my sketch by a marked contrast. Over the fireplace of one of the apartments at l.oanoke, hung, not many years ago, the portrait of a boy of twelve, by Oilbcrt Stuart. In the rosy complexion, the bright plump cheeks, the laughing eyes, and beautiful lips 01 the boy, you saw and felt the fresh charms of youth, the innocence and sweet grace of childhood. One who knew the original once, held up his hands and exclaimed, "I never saw such a beautiful boy !" JJis skin was peculiarly thin and delicate, and the warm blood played visibly beneath. In the happy eyes and ingenuous hps, every motion was distinctly reveaieu. Such was Randolph at twenty years of ie. hat was he at titty, or even forty: I examined his portrait some time since with melancholy interest. The keen eyes fixed coldly and steadily on the beholder, Jt-fled every attempt to read the thought of the brain underneath. The hair par ted in the middle and gathered behind the ears, had lost the youthful gloss of old days, and was stiff and intractable. The bright cheeks had become sallow and hrunken. Ritter tears had dimmed the bright eyes once so brilliant ; midnight ag ony and groans had wasted the round cheeks : between the smiling portrait of (filbert Stuart and the picture 1 looked on of the aged man, there was scarcely any resemblance to be discovered. Randolph's figure, like his face, was full of singular eccentricity. Tall, angu lar, thin as a shadow, he resembled rather some ghost from another world, than a veritable being of flesh and blood. IH3 limbs were wonderfully slender, aud the fashion of the time served to display this peculiarity to its fullest extent. He wore small clothes so tight that they seemed to be a part of his person ; and the snow- white stockings, fastened at the knees by a small gold buckle, fitted as close as the cuticle almost. Over these, and reaching midway the calf, were a pair of coarse, country-knit arn stockings, or "hose," as they were then called. His shoes were of the old revolutionary fashion, with huge buckles his coat ample, and buttoned tightly around his slender woman-like waist ; his chin half buried itself in the folds of a great white cravat, and the dry flaxen hair was surmounted by a fur cap. The movements of this singular figure were as unique as the costume. In walk ingjRandolph followed the Indian fashion, placing the foot straight in front the toes inclined neither inward nor outward. A fanciful mind might have attributed this peculiarity to his Indian blood, for he was descended in the seventh degree from the Trinccss Pocahontas. Moving riuickly and slowly by starts, with head thrown back, and the keen eyes sparkling beneath the rim of his dark fur cap, often mutter ing to himself, to wake consciousness of the world around him, and stride on rap idly to his lonely apartment this singular figure was eminently calculated" to attract the attention of every one, whether it mo ved over the familiar court greens of Vir ginia, or in the streets of Washington or J-ondon. In both of these cities he was the "observed of all observers." The me tropolis of England, where physical pecu liarities and eccentricities are met with incessantly, could furnish nothing stran ger than the form of the orator of Vir ginia. In Washington, Baltimore, Phila delphia, and Richmond, he was the mark of all eyes to be pointed out with the finger. Boys often followed him, but rarely laughed, or indulged in those prac tical jokes so congenial to the mischie- vous minds of youth. They trooped afl Randolph, as one who witnessed the .J..l 3 -iur. This notoriety annoyed himIIe al alteration a b .cMcle-either a madeuseof hispnvfd , f blooJe1 coach dragged ?- ,J r . .f horses, or a 7 d h aTfa "hU ' 1 1 .. ... Yt l iit!

There wa-s a satirical and ironical deliber ation in the shrill invective thus uttered, which produced a curious impression upon the listener. Once heard inhis moments of cold passion, if I may so speak, Ran dolph was never forgotten. The use which he made of his long thin forefinger is well known. He would sometimes stand for several moments perfectly silent, with his penetrating eye riveted upon the person whom he addressed, or of whom he spoke, and the ghostly finger and long angular arm moving slowly up and down -when those who were familiar with his habit knew that he was selecting and arranging in the depths of his mind the very words and turns of phrase of sarcasm or invective which he designed. Many anecdotes are related of the effect produced by the voice and finger as when after a violent denunciation of his charac ter and career by a young member of the House, he rose quietly, and Rtretchinsrout his arm, said, in calm, indifferent tones, '.Mr. speaker, , who m Unit omth-mdn ? It was impossible not to be interested in his speeches, for they are exquisitely choice in their phraseology; and no .sen tence passed his lips which had not first been framed and polished carefully, so to peak, in his mind. Often his gestures were dramatic and expressive as when he rendered up his public trust, after the Old Convention of which I have spoken. It is tune lor me to retire and stand be fore another tribunal," he said, solemnly, 'where a verdict of acquittal will be of in finitely more importance than any from an earthly tribunal. Here is the trust which you placed in my hands twenty-eight years ago. llien stooping forward and exten ding his arms as though he rolled a great weight toward his hearers, "take it back ! take it back !" he said, and mounting his horse without further words, rode off. Throughout his entire life, from the day in March, 1710, when he mounted the rostrum from which Patrick Henry had just descended, to his sorrowful death in May, 1S3.," his peculiarities of speaking, acting, dressing and living, attracted uni versal attention. SELECT MISCELLANY Wouldn't arry A JEecI-isiiIc. A young man commenced visiting a young woman, and appeared to be well pleased. One evening he called when it was ouite late, which led the lady to in quire where he had been. "I had to work to-night. "What! do you work for a living?" she inquired with astonishment. "Certainly," replied the young man. "I am a mechanic." "I dislike the name of mechanic," she said. . That was the hist time the young me chanic visited the young woman. He is now a wealthy man, and has one of the best 01 women for a wife. The young lady who disliked the name of mechanic is now the wife of a miserable fool, a regular vairrant about grog-shops: and she soft, verdant, silly, miserable rirl is obliged to take in washing in or der to support herself and children. You dislike the name of mechanic, eh ? you whose brothers are but dressed loaf ers ? We pity any girl who has so little brains, who is so verdaut and soft as to think less of a young man for being a me chanic , one of (iod's noblemen, the most dignified and honorable personage of heav en's creatures. Beware, young lady, h"" juu 11. ai in. jxjuui iii.u tuiit iil fn living, for you may one day be -' one of them yourself. bar better discard the braEfenncs.f with all his rings c to your affections and pomposity, intelligent, and indus the callous-han Thonslfnda have bittcr trious inechcir foUj wbo ave turned r.eOu.ks to honesty.

Even I I who have been a wanderer all my life long who have never had a fireside all my own mine to be sat by with a second self, dearer, if possible, than the fireside even I, lingering over that phase, can scarcely reconcile myself to the fact that I am not to some true and faithful heart that "being to go home to." J-ven I can shut my eyes and dream a dream of which that would be a blessed reality. I can see a cottage which love has made holy, nestling away in the sunny summer leaves, where the golden glory of sunset longest lingers, and the shadows latest reach. I can see the gentle wife, with Jier soft, sweet face, gazing out through the open door, and down the lane to the turnpike where hs is momen tarily expected to appear. I can hear the hum of children's voices, and feel the pressure of cool, fresh kisses, which come only from childhood's lips. I can read in the sudden flashing of her eye that there is a step not too far distant for her im patient ear to distinguish; and now I can ... . see him, that impetuous, worldly man. leaving the" world aud its cares behind him to meet the being he has "come home to." There is a loving wife in his arms; there are children clambering his knees 1 for kisses; there is peace, quietude, nww, j allaround him, and the worldly man, with the dust of city life on his spirit, with the knowledge of city cares and city speculations teeming in his brain, turns , from them all to find rest and repose in the little nook he has set apart tor love ! God bless and God bless lwr imaginary though they are ; for while 1 witness their perfect love and content, I am remember ing that I am still a wanderer. I wander with the knowledge that, had fate been more propitious, I, too, might have had my loving heart, my sunny home, and my loving children. But fate was inexorable, and when all this happiness might have been, lies stark and bare before me the panorama of two wasted lives. God help us all ; wc are not the architects of our own destiny, let moralists say what they will. I know that the world is full of homes that are no homes, of wives upon whose artificial hearts no true husband could call for sympathy, or upon mothers whose bare, jeweled necks there is no room for childhood's fondling arms. I know all this, yet I cannot realize that it is so ! Love seems to me so sacred, marriage so holy a tie, that man's or woman's life should not be complete without it. Not the wild, fierce, persistent love which burns itself out in its own fire not the marriage of circumstance or convenience to which so many lives are devoted, but the pure, true, la-sting love the wedding of souls that have grown dissolubly to each other the uniting of hearts that neither time, nor distance, nor misfortune can effect a union of soul, sense, and spirit, sure as death, and lasting as eternity, l'ltiiulog most pitiful, that there arc no more unions. . .1 a u.iug w g. iyujf in every heart of man can tfJ0 JNo niatter We, such a Jbcrji'pocc upied-nomat-Sdown with the cares and ter ll0WtIe,0f life, there come yearnings FCria rupturous, human love, drcaniings A0fc.nd lips and warm, loving arms, and m'Hrinations of a time to come when one ."V hAWU LI J. heart, out of the great wilderness of hearts, shall beat for him, and him alone.
