Many female artists may .boast of a stronger in itt capability producing louder sounds. But as far as'strength denotes the power of PUS taining great exertion without exhausting brilliancy of tone, Jenny Lind's voice is natu- rally as strong as the most exacting critic o' the modern Italian school could desire. It is certainly incapable of delineating excessive or'vioient paseiofl and H such be the highest achievement of the singer's art, Jen- ny Lind must yield the palsu to rtam and their pro-occupation with a sub cct which they had bettor let alone, pi-e- verts their being the agreeable and lationaJ conpanions of the gentlemen of their ac- quaintance, which they were designed to be- iris get all sorts of scrapes by undue pre occupation of mind; they misconstrue the corwiioncst attention uito marks uf part ten Jar rcg and thus nowrisli a fancy for a tTnom Tlie Cl-iylaiufi llw jinpcr' kept in the Wa Female Heminnry.] A Familiar Letter. w Miw to Mr. Pnniiiiim Sense1, of tho town of olJujiiW'ouii'l siaic of Veneration.

Wo one eo portrays the delicat-o shades of sentiment, or thu ever-varying emotions of love. And yet tmist not be supposed that the eoft voice is unfitted for melodies of a more joyous char- acter. Tbe crisp silvery quality of her up- per tirrtes, and her unrivaled power of modu- lating them, and sustaining and attenuating a note until it dies away in the lowest pos- sible whisper, enable her to produce some of most starling effect. It is this perfect com- mand over the resources -of her voice, and the epowta-neity with which it responds to every caprice of the seemingly inspired singer, which are sure to elicit the first expressions of the listener's surprise. With alt this extraor- dinary power of art, however, it must never be forgotten that the intellect is paramount, and that, sweet and beautiful as is the voice with which God -has gifted her, it IR to the poetry of her mind, and her fine perception of musical expression, that Jenny Lind is in- debted to her renown.

I never heard her an expres- sion about it, of course ehe would not.

I have not Ml so itt used in a long time, as I did that afternoon.

I heaid her say something about it being a feather in their caps get Mr. Bountiful, but as I had not a long time, and thought flint my presence was not necessary or pleasant to any of the parties, I left ta for- mally as possible, glad to escape from my tormenting situation. Before concluding, I must relate to you a scene which I witnessed at the laft parly I attended. The parly was large, and every thing in elegant style. I went at a fashion- able hour, nine o'clock, but not with tho prospect of any happiness before me, for I had taken a severe cold the day previous, but go I must, as it was the "fast of the and i hid made an arrangement to that ef- fect. The oariy part of ihe evening was not as pleasant as is generally Ihccaee in such crowd- ed assemblies, and I was particularly blessed in being ia the society of Mrs. Tattle, and listening to her brilliant conversation, with interlude? of the number of flounces on Flaunl'H silk dress, the quantity of rouge on Miss Hopeful's cheeks, or a wonder how Miss Pcnnyless procured the dress she had on. After supper, as the ladies were ushnred into the drawing-room to await their return into tho hall, I had occasion to go to the ladles' dressing-room, where, to my surprise, who should I see before the mirror, but a man drossed most exquisitely, and in seem- ing delight at his fine appearance. How ho came there, I could not conceive, but I sup- posed from what I afterwards learned, that he was so much engaged in the thoughts hia own vanity produced, that he did not per- ceive that he had taken the wrong room, aa the ladies' and gentlemen's rooms were aitlo by fiidc. There he stood planted before the mirror, an opera glass in one hand, and tho other raised as if in perfect admiration.
