THE SLEEPING BEAUTY^ Year after year unto her feet, She tying on her couch alone, ' Across the purpled coverlet, T? e maiden's jet-black hair has grown, On either side her tranced form Forth streaming from a braid of pear!: The slumbrous light is rich]and warm, And moves not on the rounded curl. The silk star-broider'd coverlid Unto her limbs itself doth mould Languidly ever; and, amid Her full black ringlets downward rolfd Glows forth each softly shadow'd arm With bracelets of the diamond bright Her constant beauty doth inform Stillness with love, and day with light. She sleeps: her breathings are not heard In palace chambers for a part, The fragrant tresses are not stirred That lie upon her charmed heart. She bleeps : on either hand upswells The gold-fringed pillow lightly pressed; She sleeps, nor dreams, but ever dwells A perfect form in perfect rest. MIRABEAU. An Anecdote of his Private Life. [The follovring, from "t'hambers's Edinburgh Journal," goes to confirm the common opinion that Mirabeau was a man of great intellect and energy, but of marvellous little conscience.] The public life as well as tjie private character of Mirabeau are universally known; but the following anecdote has not, we believe, been recorded in any of the biographies.? 'lite particulars'were included in the brief furnished to M. de. Galitzane, Advocate-General in tiie rnriinmeni oi rrovpncp, wiien no was retained for the defence of Madame Mirabeau in her husband's process against her. M. de (ialitzane afterwards followed the Bourbons into exile, and returned with them in 1814; and it is on his authority that the story is given as fact. "Mirabeau had just been released from the donjon of the Castle of Yincennes, near Paris. He had been confined there for three yearsand ! a half, by virtue of that most odious mandate, a IrUre-de-cachel. His imprisonment had been of a most painful nature; and it was prolonged at the instance of his father, the Marquis de Mirabeau. On his being reconciled to his father, the confinement terminated, in the year IffiO u.l.an MIrntuinn wjis tiiiltV-OIlP VearS of ,,wv> ' ? - J y age One of liis father's conditions was, tliat Mirabeaa should reside for some time at a distance ' from Paris; and it was settled that he should go on a visit to his brother-in-law, Count de Saillant, whose estate was situated . a few leagues from the city of Limoges, the Capital of the Limousin. Accordingly, the Count went to Vincennes to receive Mirabeau on the day of his liberation, and they pursued their journey at once with all speed. The arrival of Mirabeau at the ancient manorial chateau created a great sensation in that remote part of France. The country gentlemen residing in the neighborhood had often it beard him spoken of as a remarkable man, riot only on account of his brilliant talents, but also for his violent passions; and they hastened to the chateau to contemplate a being who had excited their curiosity to an extraordinary pitch. nApliAn r?f tlinoA ?? 1 UC Jj'fOWTI pvri % */?! VI UIC3U VimilU J- 9V|UIICO were mere sportsmen, whose knowledge did not extend much beyond the names and qualities of their dogs and horses, and in whose houses it would have been almost in vain to seek for any other book than the local almanac, containing the list of the fairs and markets, to which lhey repaired with the utmost punctuality, to loiter away their time, talk about their rural affairs, dine abundantly, and wash down their food with strong Auvergne wine. Count du Saillant was quite of a different stamp from his neighbors. He had seen the world, he commanded a regiment, and at that period his chateau was perhaps the most civilized country residence in the Limousin. Peopie came from a considerable distance to visit its hospitable owner; and among the guests there was a curious mixture of provincial oddities, clad in their quaint costumes. At that epoch, indeed, the young Limousin nohlemen, when they joined their regiments, to don their sword and epaulettes for the first time, were ve ! ry slightly to be distinguished, either by their manners or appearance, from their rustic retainers It will easily be imagined, then, that Mirnbeau, who was gifted with brilliant natural' , qualities, cultivated and polished by education j ? a man, moreover, who had seen much of the I world, and had been engaged in several strange | and perilous adventures?occupied the most j conspicuous post in this society, many of the component members whereof seemed to have barely reached the first degrees in the scale of civilization. IIis vigorous frame; hisenonnous head, augmented in bulk by a lofty frizzled vri/Jolltoft U'ith Bt'urs. CU'JItirC i 1118 liugc HlbC| and furrowed with teems from the effect of | small-pox injudiciously treated in his childhood ; his piercing eyes, the reflection of the tumultuous passions at war within him ; his mouth, whose expression indicated in turn irony, disdain, indignation, and benevolence ; his dress, always carefully attended to, but in an exaggerated style, giving him somewhat the air of a charlatan, decked out with embroidery, large fril', and ruffles; in short, this extroradinury looking individual astonished the country-folks i I even before he opened his mouth. Hut when his sonorous voice was heard, and his imagination, heated hy some interesting subject of conversation, imparted a high degree of energy to his eloquence, some of the worthy rustic hearers felt us though they were in the presence of a saint, others in that of a devil; und according to their several impressions, they were tempted either to fall down at ins feet, or to exercise him by making the sign of the cross, and uttering ? prayer. Seated in a large antique arm-chair, with his feet stretched out on the floor, Mirabeau oflen contemplated, with a smile playing on his lips, uiiin cAiminil tn lu'lnnir to the Drillli- I UICOV 1IIVII ?

He listened to their conversation, which generally turned upon the chase, the exploits of their dogs, or the excellence of their horses, of whose breed and qualifications they were very proud. Mirabeau entered freely into their notions; took an interest in the success of their sporting projects; talked, too, about crops; chestnuts, of which large quantities are produced in the Limousin ; live and dead stock ; ameliorations in husbandry, and so forth; and he quite won the hearts of the company by his familiarity with the topics in which they felt the most interest, and by his good nature. This monotonous life was, however frequentI ? -? -Miwilmmi uiui in nftior to vary it ij we*. i>uuic w iu????i? ...... ... ? ?j -and lor the sake of exercise after being occupied for several hours in writing, he was in the habit of taking a fowling-piece, i c wording to the custom of ttie country, and putting a book into his game-bag, he would frequently make long excursions on foot in every direction. He admired the nobe forests of chestnut-trees which abound in the Limousin; the vast meadows, where numerous herds of c ittle of a superior breed are reared; and the running streams by which that p cturcsque countiy is intersected. He generally returned to the chateau long alter sunset, saying that night scenery was peculiarly attractive t > him. It was during and after supper tl.at those conversations took place for which Mirabcau supplied t ie principal and the most interesting materials. He possessed the knack of provoking objections to what he might advance, in order to combat them, as he did with great force of Ionic and in energetic language; and thus lie gave himself lessons in argument, caring Utile about his auditory, his sole aim being to exercise his mental ingenuity and to cultivate eloquence. Above all, he was fond of discussing religious m; tiers with the cure of the parhh W itliout displaying much latitude narianism, he disputed several points of doctrine and certain pretensions of the church so acutely, that the pastor could say hut little in reply. This astonished the Limousin gentry, who, up to that time, had listened to nothing but the drowsy discourses of their cures, or the sermons ot some obscure mendicant friars, and who placed implicit faith in the dogmas of the chuich The faith of a few was shaken, hut the greater number of his bearers were very much tempted to look upon the visitor as an emissary of Satan sent to the chateau to destroy them. The cure, however, did not despair of eventually converting Miraheau. At this period se\erd robberies had taken place at no great distance from the chateau : four or five farmers had been stopped shortly after nightfall on their return from the markettowns, and rubbed of their purses. Not one ot .<knni.no' l*../I nHueail unit rnuiolalion f/tr UltfM? jrvidi'iia utm uuvivu uhj ivoiomiuw, iv? each preferred to make a sacriiice rather than run the risk of a struggle in a country full of ravines, and covered witli a rank vegetation very favorable to the exploits of brigands, who might resist the one detached from the band to demand the traveller's money or his life.? These outrages ceased for a short time, but they soon recommenced, and the robers remained undiscovered. One evening, about an hour after sunset, a guest arrived at the chateau. He was one ol Count dn Snillant's most intimate friends, and was on his way home from a neighboring fair. This gentleman appeared to be very thoughtful, and spoke but little; which surprised everybody, inasmuch as he was usually a merry companinn 111 j Kiul feoniinntlv mtmod m.?us ^iiouuiiaurs uuu nv^uv???j Miruheau from his reveries, and of lliis he was not a litte proud. He had not the_reputaiion of bring particularly courageous, however, though lie often toldglowing tales about his own exploits; afifa it must be admitted that he took the roars of laughter with which they were usually received very goo.l-humoredly. Count du Saillnnt being n.tjeh surprised at this sudden change in his friend's manner, took him aside afier supper, and bogged that he would accompany hitn to another. V\ hen they were there alone, lie tried in vain for a long time to obtain a satisfactory answer to his anxious in- j qniries as to the cause of his fneiid's unwonted j melaneholly and taciturnity. At length the ; visitor said?"Nay, nay ; you would never be- | Iieve it. You would declare that I was telling ! }*ou one of iny tables, as you are pleased to call i them; and perhaps this time we might fall out." j W H R WOR K MAN, ATTORNEY AT LAW, Camden, 8. O.
