or the emperor, and in virtue of the power by him conferred. Eugenie. The emperor entered Genoa on the 12th. No language can do justice to the enthusiasm with which he was received. On the day of his arrival at Genoa, the wife of the Sardinian minister, at Paris, presented Eugenie with a magnificent bouquet, which had arrived, in perfect preservation, from the ladies in Genoa. It came Genoa. It came from the most distinguished ladies of the city. In the accompanying address they said:-- The ladies of Genoa entreat your Majesty, who so nobly partakes in the magnanimous feelings of the emperGenoa entreat your Majesty, who so nobly partakes in the magnanimous feelings of the emperor, to accept these flowers, which they would have strowed on your path had you accompanied your august husband on the entrance into Genoa. May these flowers be the symbols of the immortal wreaths oGenoa.

One could drink in strength, as from a fountain, from gazing on that attitude of pride and grace, so light, yet firm, and renew one's wasted vigor by the mere sight of that exulting and effortless action. What a gem of description we have here at the end of a letter, written from Naples on the 18th of April:-- We drove to Naples this morning over a road, which, for its varied scenery and picturesque views, seems to me only comparable with the Cornice leading to Genoa. It was with heartfelt reluctance that we left Sorrento, which must ever seem to me one of the loveliest places on earth. O pride and darling of this delicious shore,--like a young festive queen, rose-crowned, sitting in the shade of oranges and myrtles, watched over with visible tenderness by the olive-clad hills, gently caressed and sung to by the capricious sea,--bright, balmy, bewitching Sorrento, adieu!

Amina, in Sonnambula, --a customary role of operatic debutantes,--was the character she then assumed; and therein she made a marked and promising success. The unusual power and compass of her voice, and the felicitous method of her execution, speedily became themes of praise with European connoisseurs of music. At Naples, Genoa, Rome, Florence, Madrid, aid Lisbon, her first success was repeated and increased. So, for two years, she prospered, on the continent of Europe, receiving the applause of the people, the cordial favor of musical criticism, and the compliments and honorary gifts of nobles and of monarchs. In 1857 she made her debut in London, in the same company with Ronconi, Gardoni, and Tagliafico, in I Puritani, and thereafter took a high place in the favor of the British public.
