Two incidents fa that family history will help
Usta-fiee'it ’With a" little more .distinctness.
When seven childremwas horn, the
perir past, and the moment cpino for the
dothei to rejoice that a man-child was born
Intothe worlds she called her husband to her
bedside, and answered his faying greeting with,
“here,Henry,lsanother mouthforyou to feed.”
The plaint, wfungfro™ the lips of that noble
woman by the Iron , grip of necessity,, struck
the young physician in attendance like a blow
Upon an eapoeed nerve.. It.was his first sight
of the. wolf that looks in upon the retreats of
poverty, and troubles its life-springs at their
fountain-heads, .
*: But,Bve years afterwards, the cloud that hung
upon their fortunes turned its silver lining
out upon their sky. Elizabeth became the bride
of ah eminent young' clergyman; the. family
removed to the distant place of his residence;
their good qualities held the respeot which his
connection brought them, and, under- kindlier
influences, the long looked for, and well earned
prosperity flowed in upon them, and they are
happy in the present, and as happily reconciled
to the past.' "

• But here on- tho front bench sits to
whom everybody does the fall justice that he,
deserves from them, and they are capable of
rendering to unquestioned worthiness. That
earnest, gentle goodness of expression is in its
simplicity.clear to every apprehension; clear
to the simplest, and clearer still in propor
tion io fad doptli of insight in- tho observer.
Hts air-and utterances alike indicate a child
like purity and manly excellence of, heart,
pis hair 1/white as wool; ago is beginning to
mark his form and poßturo with its impress,
butsomethlng alive within him keeps his 'boy
hood’s tenderness fresh as it was five and
twenty years ago, when tho elect of his affec
tions was taken from him in tho fail bloom of
Jierbeauty. , Faithful fa all things, he is most
feithfal to his affianced spirit-bride. The stu
pid world around ascribes his strange constancy
to a supposed.constitutional eccentricity. He
hearsof his bachelorship the mo
notonous variety of witticisms which it invites,
but keeps his secret sacredly; and is happy is safe from the rude irreverence of gos
siping discussion. His life is' a eheorfal ' soli
tude, which bis occupation specially favors.
He s'the watchmaker of the nearest village.
All day longho sits at his qnict work, alone
with liis reveries, which ordinary intrusion
relieves without wholly interrupting. In tho
evening he takes his regular walk up a little
glen that opens upon tlie river shore, within
easy distance of his dwelling; and at night ho
gets indulgence and expression for his fadings
in his violin. ■ ‘
Regular fa all his habits as his own chrono
meters, and as untiring and exact in duty, liis
fancy and. affections have also caught tho
strict formality of system, and havo grown so
.uniform and measured in.their movement that
it is hard to' see through that placid surface
tho warm sentiment of constancy which sus
tains its even earnestness. His hope is now,
fa more regards than one, “ an anchor which
entercth within the veil.” Tho earthly love is
now, year by year, insensibly changing its tone
and deepening its current, and the religious
devotion which first grew out of it, is gaining
its' proper tenderness, as the autumn fruit
holds the flower’s fragrance mellowed in its so
ber ripeness.
''This man’s intellect is not large nor well
cultivated, but it is so honest that it cannot be
cramped or clouded. He behoves a creed
which is much controverted around him, or
thinks ho does; but it does not trammel his
judgment or limit his benevolence. lie is not
Indifferent to: the nicest shades of right in
theofy and practice, which he can appreciate,
but ms justice is ever gentle andgenerpus. Ho
ia.tlie apologist for all the erring of the con
gregation; and the peaco-maker of the neigh
borhood. Sometimes, too, though rarely, he
is /the. confidant of tender troubles; but ho
never Invites them by revealing’ his own,
though he cannot always avoid betraying them.
His -experience 1 has taught him to guide his
hands wittingly in laying the' blessing upon
bruised affections. ; He has learned that lore
fa the school of. suffering, and his sympathies
have the savor of a sacrament to'tlio sorrow
ful-in. heart.- Above ail, in that rude region
where the gospol'nmst grappie with sin in its
coarsest farms of resistance, where religion is
earnest enough to provoke persecution, and
impiety rude enough to inflict it, and taste and
temper are as much tried ah pious sensibility
fa pained—in alibis faithfulness of oxhorta
tlon and'remonstrance, his manner is so kindly
that he makes everyhody.better whom ho meets
without first making them feel that they are
■ worse. ‘ _
~ TUcre is another Style of man in this rustic
audience,- wholly unlike liis fallow members,
add much more difficult of thorough appre
ciation' and adequate presentment. How ho
came hero I cannot tell, nor where ho qarae
from; His most intimate acquaintances did
riot know himj yet ho was a stranger nowhere.
Every man and woman in.the community was
as familiar with him as with their next neigh
bor, but not one among them a|l understood
him, while he knew rind-understood them all.
Still; there Was nothing that could ho called
mystery about him. Ho was not a puzzle, nor
even a problem, to anybody. Every ono was
satisfied with him, and with his own know
ledge'of him. He had nothing of. what is,
usually called address. It was his quick in
sight and his ready sympathies that addressed
him easily arid frankly to every variety of per
son whom be met. At work and at play lie
was at par in every company. , With, old wo
man and-iittio hoys, students, clergymen, poli
ticians, 'gay girls; serious, worldlings, roister
ing biilließ matrons, sick persons, and
young dandies, he was as easy ns a glove and
as genial as sunshine. HO whs ardent and tem
perate, passionate and gentle, cautions and
bold, sensitive and exacting, but simple, natu
ral, and familiar. He was at once jovial and
earnest, frolicsome and refined, proud yet
nnforbidding, and without mannerism, conceit,
or carefulness of effect.
His education was irregular, but compre
heUsive,-for ho was not so properly studious
:ns intense. : He had that sort of thoroughness
which may bo attained without sovero atten
tion to details; seeing facts always in the light
of principles, seising generals first, and very
safe in retracing them to particulars, full of
fancy and feeling, and alive with poetic fire.
His honesty carried its 1 evidences, with it
always; and although his criticism was hyper
critical; his- uttorances hyperbolical, and his
temper volcanic, it teas all so generously and
unselfishly tempered, that ho was felt and feared
without distrust, or any feeling approaching to
dislike. Ho was too indifferent to any thing
that concerned his own interests to be danger
ous to.anybody. In this security his acquaint
ances conceded all bis claims, allowed Ids su
periority, and dwelt in peace with him. He
owed the habitude of miud that thus distirv
guished him, I suppose, to pecuniary indepen
dence, to a youth that knew no wants, and had
no strife with embarrassing conditions, and to
expectations so ample, that ho was never driven
into'actual or prospective conflicts with tho
.world. Moreover, no had no ambition that
involved competition, or aroused ltd spirits
but on tho contrary, nis. mind and heart, wore
habitually held at such a pitch as might be
come tho undisputed heir of all things; and
its fruits were a constant spirit of peace with
all men. He met no superiors in any thing,
and never felt a touch of envy. Nor did he
value the acknowledgment or tho evidence of
powor and position so much as to use any op
>ortunity : for securing or increasing them. I
jeltevO the men he. mingled with would have
accorded , him a heartier' admiration and a
warmer friendship, if he had not so wantonly
neglected tho personal advantages of his varied
powers and resources. His indifference to the
things which wore the great aims of their life
pressed upon them like a judgment of their lit
tleness; and implied a certain moanness in the
motives and uses they involved.
Among women this point in hls character
. made him an ideal of manliness. Tho finest and
Meat among them, alike; found pleasure In
their' apprehension of, and.regard for him.—
None .oi- the drudging necessities, none of. tho
absorbing interests of business, or ambition,
would ever harden him. to them; and they felt,
perhaps, without clearly understanding, that
in this respect he was as feminine as the es
sence of womanhood itsolf. But this was also
n reason of his inefficiency'. It kept him from
the activities of the civil and social administra
tion. He never had an oiHco in his life j never
aV6ico ini the formally organized functions of
society. At a public meeting he spoke and
voted for himself j but he never managed any
■Other man in■ any other Way. Ho respected
the • liberties pf opinion and action of other
men, and. would not worry a measuro through
by any outdoor indirectness.'. In his natural
position of master-raind ha was invincible, but
bo was not qhallfled'l for. leadership in any
movement that requlrCd address, for- the sim
ple reason that he would hot employ It.
His friendships were yalnable, but they wore
hot very constant. -An excellent Judge he was
of other.people, but ho was sure to endow
those whom ho lUcedMth whatever they lacked
of the qualities npon which his regards were
fiecefeariiy,conditioned.. For his own tmrpo
' tea they never failed him, because lie - kept his
.friendsjmlformly up. to his-ownatandordof
oharacterand cohduetj but hr their relations
r ® B Pt*o relapse into
■ imijf. bwh littlenesses again, and flip discov
-1 'pfy'of such delimjtienclea instantly thrust them
. put ofhis regard;.;, hlspwn charac
ter-'was rapidly expanding,' andthe bosom
friend of yesterday sunk into, common-place'
with him At every advince he made upon him
' »lf.- The cotuxnonprudence heppssiuy : to the
safe-sailing of Common people seemed coiv
ardicoand selfishness to him. He did notknow
that they could uot afford the risks of enthu
siasm and imagination; having too'little ,of ,
those qualities to recover > themselves from
their incident mistakes and misadventures—he
did not know that tbo bigotries of sentiment
which showed themselves in ordinary people
were but the natural tenacity, and necessary
security, of their narrowness Of fOith and in
sight i for, his own wore so free and strong,
and self-adjusting, that he could trust klmsell
upon the sharpest point of an opinion, and
the highest pinnacle of a purpose, in easy re
liance that his wings would preserve his bal
ance, or provide a safer perch. He was there
fore intolerant, though not, tyrannical ; and
loved nothing steadily, and held to nothing
persistently, hut his own ever-growing Ideal.
Besulting'from all this, .it is easy to infer
that, while he deceived no trust, and disap
pointed no rcliancewblch he Invited,ho, never
theless, falsified all the prophesies that rested
upon him forhis after life. , He never achieved,
in his later manhood, nnythingwhich the world
calls a success s nut let it bo noted also that he
never suffered a defeat. It was his fate to
puzzle and perplex every one who took any
concern in his fortunes, —every one but him
self. The dreams of his youth have settled
and solidified into the factsof middle age I but
bis later actual life is as much Interior as the
perspective oi his boyhood; and this is all
the mystery there is in it.
For some years he held the reputation of an
effective orator, but ho nover made an effort to
secure its fruits. No one ovor doubted his
ability for any sort of business, but nobody
expected him to do its drudgery. His
opinions and judgments wore eminently
practical, and he was among the safest of ad
visers, but he never carried anything in ids
own practice to accomplishment. In a word,
his actual life has been but the complement of
the lives around him, hut nothing to the fur
therance of liis own, by the measurement of
ordinary judgment. Among the prominent
features of this complex character nothing
was more striking than the warmth and hearti
ness of his admirations—he was a very hero
worshiper j ever seeking, as it seemed, out of
himself, the embodiment of his highest self,
and although confident, to a fimlt in his own
convictions, always best satisfied when he
could admiro them unreservedly and unsel
fishly as the property of other men. His
intellect was at once agile and massivo;
but rather and graceful than witty.
Mirthfulness and” delicate humor mingled in
its movements, like light woven into the water
of a mountain stream; and genuine pathos mel
lowed its brightness like cypress shades trem
bling in the setting snn upon a meadow slope.
Ho was the best story-teller in the social circle,
and the keenest critic and aptest debater in a
public controversy. ‘ He shono in an extempo
raneous speech, but shied fastidiously at a set
address. In such public service selfish men
used him for their purposes, and ho proudly per
mitted them to do so, when a worthy object
aimed at could be so effected, though burdened
with their personal advantage.
To aum up the workings of this character, I
need not say that the issuo showed his life a
failure for nil tlio purposes which his youth
predicted. Yet every enterprise of the times
which ho approved had the advantage of his
services, up till tho moment when it neared
success, and then he abandoned if to tho in
terests of those who desired to ride into har
bor upon its flood-tide.
Conspicuous among the points of incomplo
tion and non-fulfilment which his history ex
hibits, were such as these: He had very rich
poetical sensibilities and abundant resources
of the art, but he never wrote a poem; and
though libOraliy furnished with literary stores,
ho added nothing to tho stock of polite learn
ing ; for tho singular reason that his ruling
testes and tendencies were philosophic and
scientific, for whoso culture the promiscuous
engagements of his life left him no sufficient
leisure; and their pursuit was, bosldes, addi
tionally embarrassed by tho indulgence of his
social proclivities.
I have been endeavoring, thus far, only to
analyse tho character in hand without embrac
ing the elements of his physical organization
and temperament. The general quality of those
life-forces and life-controllers may he readily
inferred, and I need only say that they were
in happy consonance with his mental make,
nis complexion must have been very fair; his
eyes blue, his linir colored in keeping, his
health perfect, and his age, at tho time intend
ed, about twenty-two; and they were so. But
the correspondence struck still deeper. With
out any approach to ruggedness or robustness
of frame, ho could endure the sharpest vicissi
tudes of weather, perform tho severest ath
letic exercises, work all day and watch all
night, unconscious of fatigue. Ho often
Worked his brain in the tenseness of a spasm,
or held his feelings in an ocstaoy, for days to
gether, with impunity; yet, withal, he was as
susceptible of ephemeral fevers, and os liable
to delirium in them, ns tho most nervous
woman in 'ho country; hut his fine constitution
never failed to dispose of tho morbid influ
ences, and. rise into renewed health with equal
celerity. "I have seen him treated for tho au
tumnal chills of that region, with pure and
powcrihl stimulants, with immediate success;
and I have scon him bled twonty ounces in a
similar chill, with just the same result. Thoro
was, indeed, a strango combination in his vital
structure. No lady had a softer hand or nicer
touch, and not a blacksmith in tho valloy
could strike a harder blow. There was, in
fact, a mixture of tho rowdy and the woman
in his make, that defied tho common rules of
symmotry and proportion. His voice was mu
sically mellow, yet his beard and hair were like
fine-spun sand-stone for grit and stifl’ness. Ho
spoke with n matchless rapidity, but with a
distinctness and rhythmical modulation which
urn nothing to bo wished for—tho deafest
could hear, and tho dullest understand him.
Those only had their attention strained who
could grasp the wholo play and compass of his
thought, and tasked, themselves to compre
hend it.
In this, again, we have tho analogy of his
physical organism: bis mental action, modu
lated iiko bis muscular, strained no faculties of
others except their strongest. It levelled
itself, gently to the gentle, while it roso like
an ,ocean-tido against encroaching currents.
But tho most material modification, the ad
ventitious force most effective upon his early
life, remains to be noticed—his religious expe
rience. And here I must be allowed some
license of description—some freedom of out
lining in the effort at presentment. Remem
ber that ho was but twonty-two at the dote of
our flint acquaintance; an enthusiast iu senti
ment, a poet in mental temperament, and had
never been unhappy. Not a wavo in the
current of his young life had yet been ruffled
by a crime or an advorsity. Fostered by na
ture and fcasted byforiuno to the fullness of
Ids needs; with doors wido open to all tho
hearts that he would enter, and all his future
built of his own dreams; and we may know
what it is that his full soul yet hungered for.
It was hut the other day that his head and
heart were overflowing from their own fresh
fountains. The sunlight of an early spring
day flashing on the hill-tops, the streams gush
ing fi-om their slopes, and rushing in a thou
sand currents, with such direction only ns tho
accidents of tho surlhco gave them, might fitly
stand for the material typos of his electrical
impulses in their freo frill play. Thought and
feeling sprang from brain and bosom in search
of the Infinite, as the rivulets rush omvard
toward the sea. His aspirations climbed tho
heavons, his affections grasped tho earth;
till finding no boundaries at their utmost
outreach, his soul stood entranced in the midst
of tho great deep. The sense of tho un
limited and eternal that grew out of the biiffllng
boundlessness of his search, resolved them
selves into a Divine Efficient; nnd then come
revealed religion to shapo the wondering
worship into order and beauty ; and he be
lieved, and lived, and moved, and had his
being in the Ail-Perfect.
He belongs now to this motley congrega
tion, accepts its seeming brotherhood, assumes
its sectarian name, and performs the duties of
Its membership, in all tho frank confidence and
simplicity of a gonorons nature. Ho is thirst
ing for the communion of tho good and true.
The church is tho visible kingdom; in its
sacred sphere ho breathes freely; and the
meagre, sordid earth, and the false natriro of
the life around him are merged in the glory of
tho indwelling divinity. Old things have
passed away, and all tilings hnvo become new
to his renewed heart. And, lie shall have one
holy year of this spiritual exaltation, which
shall consecrate his whole life after, and leave
the perftimo of its grace and goodness to bless
and beautify, when, alas I tho cnclinntmcnt is
broken by tho hindrances an evil world offers
to a holy life.
It will bo seen that I have been describing
this man in his youth, by the help of tho light
reflected from his after years. Tho problem
of tho bud is resolved in the fruit, whorevor,
as in his case, the latent possibilities have
freedom to grow by their own forco into ac
tual. tics.
Vebv Cool !—ln sport, as well as in politics,
coolness is tho quality whioh Englishmen most
admire. They worship Louis Nnpoleon booauso he
is “cool;” they admire Lord Palmerston beenuso
he is “cool;” and wo are at a loss to understand
why,they did not oorry the “oooV’ Pnlmor in
triumph.' It is truo that the latter did not
succeed. and suooess is tho standard of morality.
That there aro oiroumstancos in which cool
nosa is of great avail, wo aro unable to dony,
especially after tho inßtanee which it was
°“r good fortune to witness latoly. A llerman
violinist recently appeared in a concert before
a London audience, and began to play an
adagio; but ho was interrupted in the boginning by
loud hissing. Without moving a musolo in his
fsoo,,oUr Teutonic artist puts,his bow on the
ground, and whistles his melody, taking it just at
tho note whore ho had been stepped, and accom
panying himself by pinohing bis violin as If it
'y e fo a guitar. Tho public gave vent tu their de
light by laughing and applauding. .» Oh!” said
the musician, bowing A. seoond tW * thought
you were fond of whistling, and waa dcslrous to
show that I can whistle as well as yon'; but; seeing
that most of you prefer musio, I will gratify your
wishes." And, without even smiling,he takeshls
bow up and achieves his piece amid a thundering
applause. This man dpes not need (6 bo a Paga
