DESCRIPTION OP COUNT D'ORSAY , La>'y Blessington spoke French well: but if you would endeavor to imagine a French angel, who had been not only educated, bat had passed the whole of his existence out of heaven and in Paris, you would possibly a: rive at the idea which was then formed by me of D Or* say's style of voice, utterance, accent, and phraseology. The French tongue seemed raiher to adapt itself to his ideas, than his ideas appeared to adapt them selves to it. Purely Gallic as he was, he was by no means the Frenchman who lounges about Paris at the present day. You may wander, should you choose w do so, for many a month through that city, without meeting any likeness to whom either his manner or conversation can be assimilated. It was not, so far as one is able to judge by report and rep utation, that of the old regime. He was too young to have imbibed the traditions of the Vielle Cour, and too innately the gentleman to have been tainted by the carelessness and want of refined feeling which had attended the Revolution, and acquired strength, consistence, and dura bility under the Consulate and the Em pire. His dress was in itself a model wot thy of study. Quiet, and yet mos: minutely retined, no one could have mis taken it for any but the attire of a gen tleman. How exquisitely kind and so ciable were his manners! Yet through them all, how very evidently was it ob vious to any who might be associating with him, that he was a man who never by any accident forgot his own position, and that he was possibly the only living person, who, but for his rank and intel lect, might have worthily occupied the throne left vacant by the inglorious flight of Brummell. His rank alone would not have lifted him beyond the man who has stamped himself immortal by the fact that he confessed to having once 44 tasted a pea." But this, combined with his intellect, and wedded with his rare per sonal beauty and elegant figure, raised hi ui far beyond the stature of that repu tation which had been enjoyed by this we'll known individual. And then, with how sublime and touch ing resignation did he resign himself to support the weight of his debts. Did he happen to know that the officers of the sheriff wished to secure the plea sure of his society, how frankly was he accustomed to submit to that knowledge, in the security insured him in the Gore House, by the well-known legal fact, that every Englishman s dwelling place is his castle?a locked up castle in such a case, it is true?but what then ? He was a Frenchman, but he lived under English laws. Need I say that he most thoroughly availed himself of the security these laws afforded his person. Slowman, or Thompson, or Levy? whichever it was, mattered but little? might lurk about and around the pre cincts of that establishment day after day. They might gase with a hungry ardor on the equipage of Lord Chesterfield, as it rolled into the gates of Gore House, andthenclosed upon its retreating wheels. With a keen scent after their prey, they might cast longing and envious glance* on the brougham of my Lord of Brou^ ham and Vaux, when it paused at the door and contemplate the nose of its master as it twitched convulsively, when he mounted the steps within the external walls. But, alas! long as they might, those gates were scrupulously closed upon them, until after the hour of twelve o'clock upon Satuiday night. Then was D'Orsay freed from their supervision for the next twenty-and-four hours. The criminal law only is awake upon the English Sabbath. For the civilized vio lator of the w inn and tuum, that day is. as it is for the Christian, a day of rest. His cab with its splendid bay would be waiting for him at the door about 2 o'clock. He would descend the steps and enter it, looking like a somewhat elderly Adonis?lor the first blush of his i youth was a tritie faded. Two or three visits would be paid by him. Then, about five, he would drive around Ilvde Park, holding the reins with his spotless gray or yellow kids?show himself to his numerous friends and acquaintances, as his horse lounged along the banks of the Serpentine, and then visit his club, or dine with a friend, ever returning be fore the hour which would give the un lucky waiters upon Providence a chance of seizing his most precious person. Is not this a picture of content worthy of the ancient philosophers i Could even Epicures have exceeded it < Candidly, I think not. SQUEEZING BANDS. To those who can only be givers of happiness, authentic experience, commu nicated by the receivers, is naturally in teresting and we therefore have great plea sure in laying before the "squeezers, ! among our readers, the following coufes sion as to the emotion of the "squeezed'' ?being the confessions of a young lady : What an immense difference it makes who squeezes one's hand! A lady may twine her arm around your waist, press a ki^s on your brow, or, holding your hand in her's, toy with your fingers to ht r heart's content, but you are perfectly calm and collected, and experience no unusual sensations, either disagreeable or otherwise. Perchance a gentleman whom you dis like, or feel but slightly acquainted with ventures to press your hand; you snatch your hand quickly away, the indignant blood mounts to your forehead, and, with flashing eyes, you wonder how the im pudent fellow dares to do such a thing. Rather an antiquated specimen of human ity squeezes your hand; you feel morti fied fur youtself and him?mortified that a man ot his years should make t^uch a fool of himself; that he should think you can really like such nonsence; and, above all, that be believes it possible that you THE WEEKLY 8TAR. ic tag a greater variety of interesting reading tkan be fonnd to any other?to pabliabed oa Saturday.

You place your hand confidently in that ol an accepted, acknowledged lover; you are not excited or confused: you have ceased blushing continually in his presence: you experience a feeling of quiet happiness, a "little heaveo-upon earth sort of feeling;" you are perfectly con teuted with everything iu this terrestial world, especially your lover aud yourself; and yet, withal, it is a foolish feeling, as you sit with his arm twined around you, that manly form, which is to guard and support you through life; a soft, rosy, happy tint suffuses your face as your hand is clasped in his. Ah! it is a bliss ful, foolish fueling! But let some one whom you like very much?not an ac cepted lover, but one who may, perhaps, be one of these days?gently inclose your iiand iu his owu, what a strange, wild, j yful, painful feeling thrills through vou ! Tbe hot blood leaps, dancing, tumbling through your veins, rushes to your tem ples, tingles at your lingers' ends ! Your heart goes bump, bump; surely, you think he must hear it throbbing ! For the life of you, you cannot speak. Alter letting your hand remain in his just long enough to show that you are not offend ed, you gently withdraw it; but, per chance. if it is taken again, after a faint "don't do so," which is answered with downcast eyes and blushing cheek, you let the little hand, the first bright earnest of other things to come, thrilling and burning with this new ecstatic emotion, remain all trembling in its resting-place. | A MOTHER'S PBAYKR. A weather-beaten sailor, on making his homeward passage, as he doubled the storm; Cape, encountered a dreadful tempest. The mother had heard ol his arrival outside the Cape; she was wait ing with the anxiety a mother alone can know, to see her son. But now the storm had risen, and when the ship was in the most dangerous place. Fearing that each blast, as it swept the raging deep, might howl the requiem of her son, with faith strong in God she commenced praying for his safety. At this moment, news came that the vessel was lost. The father, an unconverted man. had, till this time, preserved a sullen silence, but now he wept aloud. The mother observed: "It is the hand of Him who does all things well; ' and again the sub. dued and softened spirit bowed, com mending her son and her partner, in an audible voice, broken only by the burst ing of a full heart, to Qod. Darkness had now spread her mantle abroad, and they retired, but not to rest; and auxiously waited for morning, hoping at least that some relic of their lost one might be found. The morning came. The winds were hushed, and the ocean lay comparatively calm, as though its fury had subsided since its victim was no more. At this moment the little gate in front of the dwelling turned on its hinges, and their son, their lost, loved son, stood before them. The vessel had been driven into one of the many harbors on the coast, and was safe. The father rushed to meet hiin. Ilis mother hanging on his neck, earnestly exclaimed? "My child, how came you here ?" "Mother," said he, as the tears coursed down his sunburnt face, "I knew you'd pray me home!" What a spectacle! A wild* reckless youth, acknowledging the efficacy of prayer. It seems ne was aware of his perilous situation, and that be labored with these thoughts?" My mother prays ?Christians' prayers may be answered, and I may be saved." This reflection, when almost exhausted with fatigue, and ready to give up in despair, gave him fresh courage, and with renewed effort he labored till the harbor was gained. Christian mother, go thou and do like wise. Prsy for that son who is likely to be * rerfa-d in the storm of life, ana his prospects blasted for ever. He may be saved. FAh.vit:ua.?Adam was a farmer while yet in Paradise, and, after his fall, com manded to earn his bread by the sweat of his brow. Job, the honest, upright, and patient, was a farmer; and his endurance has passed into a proverb. Socrates was a farmer, and yet wedded to his calling the glory of his immortal philosophy. St. Luke was a farmer, and divides with Promotheus the honor of subjecting the ox for the use of man. Ciucinnatus was a farmer, and the noblest Roman of them all. Bui us was a farmer, and the muse found him at the plow and fiTled his soul with poetry. Washington was a fanner, and retired from the highest earthly sta tion to enjoy the quiet of rural life, and present to tLe world a spectacle of human greatness. To these may be added a host of others who sought peace and repose in the cultivation of their mother earth; the enthusiastic Lafayette, and the steadfast Pickering, the scholastic Jefferson, and the fiery Randolph, all found an Eldorado of consolation from life's cares and trou bles, in the green and verdant lawns that surrounded their homesteads. Scott's Sensibility.?Sir Walter Scott could never eat the flesh of any creature he had known while it was alive. "1 had once," says lie, a "noble yoke of oxen, which, with the usual agricultural gratitude, we killed for the table : they said it was the finest beef in the four counties; but I never could caste Gog and Magog, whom I used to admire in the plough. Moreover, when I was an officer of yeomanry, and used to dress my own charger, I formed an acquaintance with a flocli of white turkeys, by throw ing them a handful of oats now and then when I came from the stable. I saw their numbers diminish with real pain, and never attempted to eat any of them without being sick; and yet 1 have as much of the "rugged and tough" about me as is necessary- to carry me through all sorts of duty without much sentimen tai compuuctkci.
