Tboae wbo adorned tbe European capitals in the sixteenth and seventeenth rrnlnilM wm? dlitlniriiiibil fnr their tact, wit, accomplfabmenta and attainments. The* were sought swr by princes and nobles, and their namn bare been honered In later yeara. Modern time* had ?fen a new development in tbe history of woman. They bad become writer* and author*, and bad come to be reapected for tbeir intellect and talent. Female anthora bad become a cUm In communities, and claimed an equality In the tank of mind with those who asaerted to her master. Sbe had ihown her abilltr to cope wtih man In Intellect; and as poet, novelist, critic or hWorian. sbe had borne off ber share of prize* ard distinction In tbe world of literature But no truly Immortal female writer arose until Mad ame IVStael astonished the circles of wit and genius with her brilliant productions. She was born In Paris in I71W, In an era of great revolutions, not only In political but In aoclal life. The great minds who flourished In tbe reian of I.ouis XIV were servile In their style, and clung W.th a pertinacious tenacity to the writing of antiquity But In tbe reign of Louis XV and l<ouis XIV. the greatest lights of literature broke forth with a brilliancy unequalled before. The French, English, and Germans were all strug gling for superiority in the tleMp of philosophy, and that liitellertiial freshness tucceeded which, lufldel and demoralising as it was, gave a bright ness and a luster to tbe age. Her father under a?i>od her r.haractcr much better than her mother, aud he sympathised and aided her, and she, iu return, clung to hiin to the las*. Her mother was c?>!d and exacting, yielding nothing concerning hit*! ne?s for what ahr deemed to 1*> trlflinir. and r atrictrd ber daughter to the limited sphere of her rAvn ideas Her father, however, gave her a plendid education, and at an early age Intro duced her into so<ie:y, when the soon made her ppwr felt At fifteen the wrote a work that ex cited much attention, but health finally^ave way under her Arduous mental labors, and she was compelled to suspend her writing for a season It waa no doubt beat for ber that she wm com pelled to do so. as it removed ber from the rc traintsof a rigid system to a life of poetry and mental freedom Bef?re she was twenty she wrote poetry; but growing impatient under the trammels of French, ihf ahnnilonofl it ftw ??? rnlly beautiful, but there was an attractive neat about her face that wu Irresistible, while her conversation entranced the listener She was able to talk upon all snbjects, and wh said by a great wrifcr to b<2 an expression rf many souls blended lain cnc. Highly educated, talented, acconri r>l??.h?t and fascinating, as well at the richest Hru?**a in the kingdom, she win eagerly sought art. r by the great men of the times, and heata ?nd fortunes were offered at her shrine In 17S6, wh?n at the age of twenty, she married Raron Hoistein, and presented him with a dowry of V ?: 0 mill francs Their married life was neither ?n>?-*rable nor h*ppy. They Anally separated without a divorce, but she r?turn?-d to him and nurstd him in bis last Illness At her country eat. near Geneva, she wrote ber first work of d i imcuun In 1799. upon the very dav that Napoleon, as first consul, ??".zed upon the Government, the re turned from ber exile in Switzerland ana came to Paris tbat sbe might pay ber tribute of homage to his genius. But when she saw him, sbe turned from him with aversion and dislike. While sbe felt awed before the gleam of his cold gray eye, ytshe saw in him, a? by intuition, the destroyer < f her happiness and the liberties of France. Na poleon's tact at once detected her sentiments, and nc immediately hated ber?not through envy nor fear, but because sbe detested the principles that governed bis career Her house became the center of opposition, the headquarters of enmity and wrath; and afraid of the lnflnence of ber writings, Napoleon Danished her to within forty leagues of Paris Sbe tarried a short tinte In Wlemer, and then traveled through the German States, accom panied by the translator of Shakspeare, who was totor to her son. Her history of Germany vras then written, and sbe astonished the world with tbe brilliancy of her genius, the acuteness of her perception, and tbe extent of her researches. Na poleon destroyed this work ?nH u ?nncv?H h?i In Swtticrland that the was forced to leave. Her second marriage was to an officer In the Spanish army,who was twenty five years old, and be twenty years his senior. This marriage proved a nappy one; and soon after she went through Austria, Russia, aod Sweden, to Kng laad. There she wm welcomed with grest en tiMSlMm. and taken from pi lace to palace. At the death of Napoleon she returned to I'aris, after in exile of twelve years, and enjoyed her pnudrst reign. Chateaubriand, I.afarette, Gni xot, Wellington, filucher, and Humboldt, with iiabv other ?r?at men, sought her society; Louis XVIII sought the fascinatiou of her conversation; the pr?-M sought the power ft her influence, and all France paid homage to her genius. But sbe did not live long to enjoy her triumph ?be dUd ft - ?* " * I lur ?nc "? uiiyuur?a victim 10 opium, I]tea not to stimulate tbe in! nd, but to enable tbe phys ical system to eudure tbe toil and labor Incident to her life.

In her prtvkht character she was ambitious and worldly, an* CSMrd ingly grtrdy of adulation. She was teaAjrMpted and sympathetic, and was almost wsnkl0a& bv her friends.
