Mozart ! Before every one,' least'sersed in
musical history, rises his personal image—
the slight figure, the roving and brilliant eye,
the classical features, where constitutional
timiditi heightened the . sensitiveness of gen

retn.4lc illustrated. the sensibility of his gen
ius, while it explained the neglect he had
undergone, " I 'might - hesepleased- the
'French, lint I Should have displeased my-
self., A. taste so estfavagant ! Such decla
mations! Stich violent =shrieking and
cries." Their instrumental music is ,no bet
ter, and they require you at the piano, and
violins, ind even on the organ, to violate all
taste and proportion, for the sake of noise
and Ise effect. When I composed a Nis-
erere, tvbich Gt:qzie, 'a fine composer and a
friend of tnine liked and praiied, they all
raised 'tin outcry ht` the masilve harm ony,
peculiar to Gentling, it is true, but which
is also the only proper style for the piece.
I tell thee, M. Weber, they , wanted me to
change it into a carnival procession. I tore
up the scroll' before'' their eyes, although I
threw, ftway a purse of Louis d'Or at the
same time. Florins are well enough, bin
the pleaSant hours over at Mass rif Sonota
are twit!' far ' more to me. They have
spoileti all that enjoyment."
Alilysiti Weber smiled, as if music was
noeso entirely her source of companionship,
hilt with few, indeed, however proficient, it
is the case. Mozart was interrupted by the
entrance of a noisy crowd of amateurs, and
the conversation becoming general, he with-
drew himself frOm the circle, and sat apart
moodily, and with folded arms, now regard
ing casually the animated group before him,
and soon lost in bitter meditations. He was
aroused - by a timid' touch on the arm. Ile
turned - and T4und himself comparatively
alone with Constance Weber.
By all the campus of fiction we should
have paid our respects to our heroine, long
since; but as the incidents of this tale are,
-with hardly an 'exeeption, biographical, we/
haie not ventured On such a license. Coit.i
stance had but few' attic personal advano4
ges of her elder Sister; • Her figure was
smaller—her air less ambitious—her roc.'l
talents not such as to arrest attention nr !
promise celebrity. She had escaped the •
dangers of flattery, and yet few possessed
the philter which bewitches affection moe
than Constance Weber. Her name w s
well chosen. Faith and constancy guid d
/ I
her feelings And actions. Her eye was only
a shade - unlike :Aloysia's, but its hazel 'the
was as hill of sOftuess, as the glance of her
elder sister was instinct with the strong enin
tions of pride 'and ambition. Her whole
character was decidedly. feminine. Inade
quate, herself, to achieve distinction in the
vocation of her 'family, still her critical ap
preciatioa was nicer than Aloysia's. For
instance,', Constance could never have Won
the positibn of her sister, as the Prima .MR
na of tbe;lllunith opera, yet she could ap
preciate, !with far more readiness and tact,
the donnimt genius of Mozart—the "little
man," a. her.s,i'ster had recently spoken of
him, when, thXzZled with success, she had .
secretly *solved on the scene just enacted.
Constnnce's,,affection for her sister, coni
binectwiih resjitict for her decided char t
ier, ter, bin blinded her to the defects which a e
I already apparent to the reader. She p c
haps overrated Aloysia's ability as a -
matic singer, while she justly foresaw , e
illustrious futtire of the young composer. l
Her chagrin l at the conduct of her Fist r
was therefore increased, because she thoug
c t
. the one so capable of executing the! tousle"!
creations of the Other,' and now when a ru,
ture seemed inevitable, all her. affectionat
interest was rnusecl to reconcile two hearis
which she errnneotisly deemed nec'essaryit 1
each other's - happiness. Young and inex
perienced as she was—just fifteen, find hard
ly emerged fiQ'ni the seclusion of a hapPy
household—her cheek mantled with agita
tion as 'she arrested the attention of Mozart.
, " Indeed," She said, " you must have so
many - things to 'tell of what you have seen
and heard at Peril,. that . our friends will
wonder at your Silence. None of them hive

The simplicity and earnestness of Con,

taraintercourse with Aloysia, but on this
subject he was not disposed to dwell•----pain
