GERMAN CELEBRITIES A volume ha# juat been issued by an Kdir. burgh house picturing the every-day life of several distinguished (German authors Her?? is some abcut Jean Paul: " I w*nt at eight in the morning to Jean Paul A tall, strong, bvny figure like that of a farmer or a forester, entered the room, dressed in a hunting coat, with a badger s ?kin over his shoulder, acd leading a white poodle by a string As we had long been enr respondents we were *oon in full talk I spent two evenings with him, the first in his own house, the second at that of Madame Von Kettenburg's Not only was a court lady ol <he name of Stein present on b">th occasions but the newiy married Count and Countess of Henckel Donnersmarck The wi?h to appear in the beat light excited Jean Paul, and ac customed as be is only to be listened to. my sodden interpolations interrupted him. ana tho consequence whs. tb t while be proved himself a worthy, truth-loving man. and al though the conversation turned on the lead irg men and leading event? in church and state, life and literature. I did not bear birr, utter one significant word, one deep view, one result of great inner experience ; nis cenver nation wa< throughout wearisome and obscure He naves us the narrative of his daily life as follows ' In the summer at six in the winter at eight, I walk about half a mile to Frau Schaboniel's (an old countrywc-man ;) the poodle goes wit*i me ; I carry my papers and a bottle in my badger s skin; there I work and diink my wine till one o clock ; then I do not driok again, but from five to seven I drink my beer as long as there is any in the jug.' " For ^ialf an hour Jean Paul put us to sleep with receipts for sleeping None of the lightning flashes and scintillations of fancy, the striking simiiie*, or the glowing pictures with wnicb his works abound, appeared in his c< n\er?ation. I left him. convinced that the man who, a* an author, belongs to the dearest and richest minds of Germany, is not therefore necessarily tender and soft-hearted After Jean Paul, I felt most interact about a certain Cuuucilor Kraus In order to get at him. I applied to Jenn Paul, having heard that they had been friends for year* ' We are old triends, it is true,' said he. ' but now we no longer meet Cut go to him, and say that although I never will have any thing to do with him myself. I have sent you to him Accordingly I went. I had to gu up a stee| stair, at the top of which was a closed lattice and outside hung a l<>ng wooden hamrutr. with an inscription above to this effect : 1 He who will enter must knock hard ; if the ham mer is inside i am not to be seen ' So 1 km.eked hard, and the door was opened As I enteied a largo library?which swarmed with cats of every age and color?a friendly old man. a bachelor with silver hair, and in a long dressiug-gown, advanced to meet uie. Alter I had playfully delivered Jean Paul s message, we fell into conversation 'Jean Paul.' said he, 4 is a thoroughly upright,fuel ing, g od man, rich in heart and ntiud, but the blossoms of his nature will never ripen into fruit; because he has not strength, tho roughly and scientifically, to master any sub ject He knows much, but ail he knows is in disorder and confusiou, and now thai his own mind can create nothing further, he has fallen into all sorts of follies ' " We make r >< m tor the following sketch ot Niebubr. Me was impressed by his first meeting agiin with Niel>uhr. A warm political quarrel had, in 1814, separated the two old friends, and though it had long ago been made up by let ter, yet they had not since met From iionn Perthes wrote U> Uesser " I was prepared lor a painful meeting, and should not have wondered at a distant manner or formal bear ing on Niebubr's part, but the very moment I saw him, i Sound the old heart and the old friend, and there was not a shadow of reserve between us. His wife had just given birth to her second son. and the threo elder children were running about their father's ro- m, with all their playthings; during our conversation, I was engaged first with one and then with the other of them. ?' For five days I daily spent several hours with him Our conversation was almost en tirely political Niebuhr's disposition i* very melancholy ; the purer his heart, the deeper his sensibilities, the more he feels the want of some wairn <-upport for his soul ; be fights with uncertainty and quarrels with his life He said to me. ? I am weary of life, only the children bind me to it ' He repeatedly ex pressed the bitterest contempt for mankiud ; and, in short, the spiritual condition of this remarkable man cuts me tu the heart, and his outpourings alternately elevated and horrified me. To see such a heart and m.iid in tbe midst "f tho convulsions of our tiair. gi?es a deep insight int > the machinery <>f our fo^r human lite. Niebubr needs a friend \ who would be a match for hi:n , he has not one such in the world The wealth of his iutel lect and the extent of his knowledge nre ab solutely appalling ; but his knowledge of the present is only the result ot historical inquiry and political calumniations ; he doe s un derstand individual or national life The Cuaracter op tub Frkkch Natios Did there ever appear on the earth another ra tion so fertile in contrasts, so extreme in its acta?more under the dominion of feeling, less ruled by principle: always better or wor-e than was anticipated?now below the level of humanity, now far above, a people no unchangeable in its leading features that it nixy be recognized by portraits drawn two or throe thousand years ago, and yet ^ fickle in its dally opinions and tastes that it becomes at last a mystery to itself, and is as tnu?h as tonished as stranger- at the sight of what he has done; naturally fond of home and routine, yet who once driven forth and forced to adopt new customs, ready to carry principles to any lengths, and to dare anything, indocile by dis position. but even better pleased with the ar bitrary and even violent rule of a sovereign than with a tree and regular government un der its chief citizens; now fixed in hostility to subjection of any kind, now so passionately wedded to servitude that nations made to serve cannot vie with it; led by a thread so long as no word of resistance is 8f*>ken, wholly ungov ernable when the standard of revolt is raised ?thus always deceiving its masters, who fear it too much or too little; never so free that it cannot break the yoke; qualified for every pursuit, but excelling in nothing but war; more prone to worship chance, force, nuocess, eclat, noise, than real glory; endowed with more heroism than virtue, more genius than common sense; better adapted for the concep tion of grand designs than the accomplishment of great enterprise; the most brilliant and tbe most dangerous nation of Europe, and the one that is surest to inspire admiration, hatred, terror, or pity, but never indifference.?Air > i? ilr Tocqnevitle.
