JKNJIY LIMB'S is difficult tn do- scribe that peculiar quality of tone, which renders Jenny Lind's voice unlike that ol any other svnger. 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 <3risi, Cuta- lani, and aiany of her predecessors. But in the expression of hope, joy, or grief, no tones of human voice or instrument can compare with those of Jenny Lind. They penetrate the inmost recesses nf the heart, and touch insensibly that mysterious chord in our na- ture, the vrbration of which causes the gush- ing tear to flow involuntarily. There is an inexpressible tenderness in her voice, it is so sympathetic with genuine feeling of a loving and affeciionatc nature, and it har- monizes so well with her appearance, that the BV MATHEW CARKV.

There was an invitation to Mrs. Makepeace, awl none of the reel of the although you know they go into society a great deal, and I'll be "bound to say, were as good as two-thirds there were there. Cyuss Makepeace saiu he did not ca.-e a fig for the slight, for altho' he had not the honor of an invitation to the great astei ibly, he had a distant recollection of being present atone, several years before, when Miss Mary was in pantaletts, when he walked upon the uncarpeted floor, and was treated to cold water and gingerbread, by the light of a miserable tallow candle; and do jou believe that our dear was never invited to the party, although they have appeared to think so much of him heretofore, and been almost constant visitors at hia such a perfect iady his wife is 1 really felt hurt for berinyself, to think she should reeeke such a slight, as always feeen accustomed to the beet society. I never heard her an expres- sion about it, of course ehe would not. There was certainly very strange proceed- ings with regard to that party, and Miss Giddy-Brain was so provoked because she did not receive an invitation, that she scarcely speaks to any of two family. Miss Giddy- Brain is a young lady who wishes to have it distinct.y umiJcwt-ood that she moves in aristocratic society. The idea of aristocracy in such a home-spun little village as aura, is perfectly absurd. A few weeks since in company with Miss on Mtas Giddy-Brain, (only a formal caU, you must when we1 found kef close conversation with Miss Simper, who w her most esteemed friend. I have not Ml so itt used in a long time, as I did that afternoon. I was obliged to make my conversation with her mother, for she was so much engaged in talking upon the purchase of a pair of white kid gloves, the arrival at the jeweler's of a new bracelet, and sundry other things aa unimportant, that I was of While I thus sat in perfect misery at the little attention that was shown to me, fa swept Mrs. Tattle wilh her usuai budget of news. She was arrayed in her new winter suit, consisting of a black velvet mantle, and bonnet to match, with a long plume tipped with red. She in- formed the two interesting yodng ladies whom 8ho has taken under her immediata supervision, of all the important cventB Ihal taki n place the past week, and of aH thai would probably occur for tho eocalnff fortnight, viz., that Mrs. Flaunt was car- rying on a perfect flirtation with Mr. Ex- quisite, a young; gentleman -vhohad recently arrived, and of her jealousy because he had heen known to pay attention to Miss the marriage of Mr. Wise- acre to Miss Thoughtful: and she concluded by saying, with a toss of her head, I think it too as fine and wealthy a gentleman as Mr. Wiseacre should think of taking aa poor a girl as Fanny Thoughtful, when ihere are others who ara better looking and quite as smart. Well added she wilh a sigh, we have lost Mr. Wiseacre, but there are as fish in the sea as ever were caught." 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. At first I thotigbtof retreating immediately, but as I that the gent was so absorbed in the views of his beautiful person, as not to perceiie me, my curiosity induced tne to watch the result when to my surprise, ho broke forth in the following ecstatic O, how beautiful!
