He tried his fortune with Mlle. Rachel, who replied that her profession was her _parti, and that she desired no other. This is wise ; but it is a species of wisdom more likely to diminish than increase. She will change her mind when she grows old, and when nobody, not even a Frenchman, can love her. How few are aware of the right moment, men or women ! Generally the choice is made too soon, and then the repentance is necessarily the longer, and usually the more poignant.
Out of reverence for the talents of Mlle. Rachel let us hope that she may never, soon or late, be destined to act a part in a domestic tragedy. I forgot to say that I visited Versailles again. A few of the old portraits are interesting. It is wonderful how resemblances are transmitted through several generations.

1 Ambassador at Paris.
2" It was reported in Paris that the eldest daughter of the Infant Don Francisco de Paula had eloped on Tuesday morning with a Polish gentleman. The fugitives were believed to have proceeded in the direction of Brussels."-Examiner, May 16, 1841. Writing on June io, the Paris correspondent of the Court journal said:-" The elopement and subsequent marriage of the Spanish princess, Isabella, with Count Geropski is still the subject of general conversation here."
