What power is it that keeps us from falling into the deeps of despair, when there is no living world, with its rush and whirl, to distract oo| minds from what we are and what we shall be f How is it, that after moving listlessly through a sickly, hopeless day, we some times fall asleep, and dream the sweetest dreams that the most eager heart could desire? After closing our eyes with utter indifference to tho vt pid monotony of the actual world, in the dead of the night a new world hursts upon u*, and we wander delirously in Elysian fields, upon whieh no biigbt has fallen. When the eyes we have seen through the day have been cold, without expressing a rav of feeling, how is it that when we sleep, eyes that buru with the ravishing divine ness of warm, yet tender emotions, rise upon us, strike themselves upon our na tures, and urge our languid pulses into the beatings of foil and perfect life ? I explain it, by supposing that to every one is appointed a sleep qenius who watches over us at night, but is power less to protect us by day. I believe this, because I know one who has"*iared to explore so deeply the mys teries of her own nfe, with its fierce emo tions and passions, that many of tho strange and shadewy phenomena that lie on the borders of existence, have been revealed to her. She has felt the pres ence of her sleep genius?she knows that such a spirit exists. She is not happy, but the fruits of that which she has suffered are not hollow eyes and a faded check, nor low spirits, nor re irement from the brilliant pleasure of the world; oh, no! it has borne a bitterer fruit than that?she is gay and lively, but she is utterlv reckless; her her words, her actions, do not point to some aim in iife ; she flings them from her in derision, and cares not for her talents, since her hopes arc dead?whe cares for the roots and the stem cf a plant, if the flowers mast forever trail in the dust ? ( h. Nature! that blasteth with thy deadly blight the tender flow crs, stay not to shed thy dews upon the useless leaves?no, tear them up, da?li them into fragments, and give them 10 thy wild winds, that they may scatter them to the uttermost parts of the piti less earth! All the life in this wild heart is meiely the flush and ddirium of fever. She doe3 not live, she only consumes life But the dreams of this* same wild spirit are more extatic than the happy can con ceive of, and all th se dreams arise from the tenderness of her sleep genius. She invokes at night this nameless spirit, tossing wildly from side to side, until he comes to her aid, knowing there is none else to help her. As soon as he enters his presence unseen, but deeply felt, tills the whole room with a balmy atmos phere. in which her soul floats softly, no longer tossed on tempestuous seas She feels that his hand rests on her arm, though it is invisible to mortal eyes, and his touch, softer than the roseate breath of summer, soothes her into an undefined repose. She tries to raise the heavy eye lids that fall over her eyes, but a plea sant spell binds her; she cannot dismisf the drooping languor that creeps gently over all her limbs, and so she resigns herself to the influence of this guardian spirit. Gradaally the dreadful world rolls from her. She begins to breathe a purer air; the sleep-geuius is bearing her to higher regions ; his hands now rests on her brow, and all the fever that the course of the day had burned in her brain, passes away with the touch of this humid hand; she is asleep. And now the sleeping genius begins to dream, too. He is watching the statue-like repose of her face: he reads a 1 her thoughts ; he sees her errors; his linger rests upon the pulses of h r heart, and though they are still now, he feels that they have been swollen with th? heat of iutensest fever, and he pities her, he has compassion on her; he " has no heart lor blame," for he is only a spirit? he is not a man?he does not worship at the altar of the practical. lie forgets to whisper pleasant thoughts in her ear, and she grows restless again. Ghastly shapes from dream-land throng up around her ; she tosses wildly, and begins to sign and to moan; then the dream-spirit bending over her. whis pers, " ileep softly, darling; forget the frowning world; no shadows, no re proach, no harsh word shall fall upon thy sleep; fear nothiflg. I will guard tnco I. Then he takes her hand, and leads her over untraveled seas, through the shining gates of the ideal world, into that land of all divinest splendors; into that land where the fairest fields are not withered by the fiercest rays of the sun, nor the purest streams o ershadowed by the upas tree. She lies down upon the white flowers, and all heavenly influences seem to charm away the serpent from her heart. Nor is she alone, for the sleep-genius leads to her those whom she loves in life, and from whom the mercihss tide of fate strands her far away. Yes ! there is one who walks ever with her through the labyrinthine mazes ol ideal delight. "Fear not,:' 6ays the dream? spirit, 41 to look deep down into those ravishing eyes, nor yet fear the touch of that tender hand; ia the ideal world one caunot harm another; if these are the sweetest eyes you hare ever seen, dare to believe in their sweetness ; you may love that which is loveable, anc and adore that which is adorable, and yet be innocent here ; for to weep, and to love, and. to aspire to divinest ideals are not crimes here, as in your plodding stoical world." On ! then no more alone she wanders with this man?no, not with the man but with the essence of his humanity, stripped of all that ?ttaches to it on earth?the principle, the inner spring of his life, without nis virtues or his vi~es. She knows not why she has loved him ; in the face of all his faults and weak* ne?ses. she knows that she has grasped his nature, separate from circumstance, and found, far down b?neath this turbid stream, a single, clear, deep, deathless current, flowing evermore. Deep into the heart of green forests, where foot has never trod, they warder. His voice trembles melodiously on her ear, till all the stars that burn beyond in the still distance, seem to move to thm music of that toue, and all the light which falls on the limitless fields around them, to emanate from those eyes whvro all wild btauty centres itself. And she listens and she, till as some pale flower o'ercharged with the dews of night, sinks down, crushed un der its sweet burden, so her heart, borne down by this love from which all earth liness, is cast away, and bathed in pie cious tears, breaks itself, and can endure qo more. Then 6he awakens. The sleep-genius has left her. and the light of a new day is breaking over the world. We live two lives?what matters it if the happiness we enjoy in sle^p is vis ionary ? Can there be any happiness other than that the mind believes iise'.f happy ? What arc we in the world but that which circumstance' make us ? What shape can our lives take bat that into which destiny moulds them, with its ar bitrary decrees ( Not so in the bour? of sleep ; wc a-e what we would be ; noth ing is impossible to us. for we are spirits then. Thoughts and feeling; take tangible shapes; hones and desires build 'hern -sives granmy up arcdr.d us like the lofty columns of a great temple, until we s< em lost in the utter boundlessness of cur grand aspirations. Oar souls, no longer ramped in fetters of iron, spring up like eagles, newly escaped from dark cages, and rise above the narrow bound* of this weary earth, upward right upward, to the centre of light!?N. Y. Atlas. IIow Julia Dean was Courted ?It seems there was a slight tinge ol romaoce attending the wooing and marrying of this ycung actress According to the New York Courier, Miss r?ean, txo) ears ago, played an engagement in Charhs* ton, S 0 , from whirh she rea'ir. d s?x thousand dollars, and was complitni U'td by som" of her admirers with a splendid head ornament valued at ?1.500. A?no*?j the committee of presentation ?as o.?e Dr Hayne, son of Senator llaym Dr. Hayne then became personally acquaint ed with Miss Pean, and a mutual feel ing of admiration was awak^ntd, which has resulted in the marriage. Dr liayiio was twenty-six years old. He is not a man of wealth, liis mother, on his coming of age, gave him something to speculate with; but his speculations did not turn out well. His meeting with Julia in New Orleans was apparently ac cidental, as he was on his way to Texas, and he went to Galveston in the same ship with her and her father, and put up at the same hotel. On Sunday, as old Dean sat smoking his cigaron th- piazzt after dinner. Julia suddenly appeared before him, accompanied by Dr. Hayne, and a little drama eusued. Th v ex pressed a desire to be marred and ask ed his consent, which was instantly and freely given. A carriage was called, and the fair Julia, accompanied by ^erfa'her, the captain of the steamer in which they cama to Galveston, the landlord of the Fremont House, Julia's dressing-maid, and the bridegroom, proceeded to the clergyman s house, where the nuptial knot was tied. Excellent Advice ?On the subject of behavior in company, Leigh Kicitinond gives the following excellent advice to his daughters : "Bo cheerful, be no pig gler, be serious but not dull. Be ce>ui ' municativc, but not forward. Be kind but not servile. Beware of silly, thought less speeches; although you may forget them others will not. Remember that God's eye is every place, and his ear in every company. Beware of levity and familiarity with young men; a mo lest re serve without affection, is the only safe , path. Courf and encourage serious con versation, and go not into intelligent company without endeavoring to improve by the intercourse permitted you Noth ing is more unbecoming, when one part of the company is engaged in profitable and interesting conveiaation, than that another party should be trifling, and talking comparatively nonsense. Hk Couldn't Stand That.?A young . gentleman of our acquaintance, who had been "paying his devours." (as Mrs. Partington would say) to a young lady for seme time, suddenly leu her. Wo asked him the reason, and he told us in 1 the following words: "I h?d been with her, you know, a good while, and no ticed that she would rather go home alone ' than have me with her; but I didn't mind that, you know. Well, one night 1 when we got to the door, says she, 'Mr. 1 , I do not wish your company anv longer, and I'll thank you to keep in your place, and away from me." That was a L little too hard, and 1 wouldn't stand it. : J sacked ktr that very aicAf."'?Ly*n ? (Mass.) Nncs. i The Kliphant's Style.?When the I elephant wa ks, it does not simultaneous > ly move its right fore-leg and left hicd , leg, cor its ldt fore-leg and its right L hind-leg, as the horse and other ouadru I peds do when they walk; but it advances 1 the left fore and hind-leg, and the right I fore and hind-leg together, at each step. , Thus, in short, it moves both legs ou , the same side at once. From an ign<^ j ranee of this fact artists have often rc i presented the elephant in the attitude of ,1 trotung like a horse.
