we might be the abiding places of bogles or of
beautiful fairies j while, 011 tho other hand,
lay the desolate yellow hills.crowiied by gray
clouds that seemed ever unwilling to yield
to sunshine,
Tho house itself suggested refined comfort.
It was spacious and stilMntitial. Every part
of It was moulded with symmetry Hint lent
grace to its strength, nnd clearly bespoke- a
natum cultivated and proud, secure of his
own claims and confident ol its own tate ;
but the lofly vestibule, tho wide stairway,
and the spacious halls were imbued with a
gloom that 110 fancy decoration, nor music,
nor laualiter, nor tho intoxication of wine
could unbend, for there was an lnvliblopre
siding Influence that seemed to peni lrato the
liollowiie-s of mirth and to prnliet the litief-
ness of joy. From long seclusion in such

ideal of the female sex ; but I fear that Ills

his slrangenes". It was during the summer
prececding Ids death that I became acquaint

teries tome. He and I were affectionate
companions, I being the younger of the two;
nn,l, as I have said, during the summer pre
ceding his death ho proposed that, we should
prosecute together a pleasure tour among
the Highlands ; so we set oil' provided with
hunting and fishing implements nnd for
many days pursued our sports with much
avidity at least, I did, but I could after
ward, in thinking of this expedition, recall
the restless desiro which Sir Hugh seemed to
repress, while he exhibited an unconscious
anxiety about sometliiug not present.
"We had piirui'd our sports for the spaco
of ten d iys, when on the aflernn'in ot the
eleventh, we Miililcnlv, and without any
warning, arrived at a cottage situated snug
ly in the cleft of the mountain, looking like
tho nest ot'a bird. I was startled by tho
cultivated beauty of its surroundings, just
in the midst of the mountain wilds, remind
ing me of some rare (lower borne by the
winds from a foreign shore, with no kind
red blossom to bear it companionship. The
welcome accorded us by the head of tho
iauiily proved that Sir Hugh was a valued
if not a frequent guest. A look of inquiry
showed me that all the iiiiial family were
not there; but tho rustling of n dress, tho
sound of a light footstep, and in the dour
stood u young woman whose presence cer
tainly answered to Sir Hugh's ituultcred
question. '.Mis E-tlier Jloutrose, allow me
to make you acquainted with my coiniu ;
and I felt :i solt hand for a moment within
ray own, a frank pressure, as though the in
triulucer were a guarantee for any one, and
in a few moments I was feeling myself un
accountably at my e.le among total strang
ers. The l.illier anil mother, inougii ineir
f ices reminded one of llio old Cjvenanteis,
were plain and kindly in llieir m inner; and
the daughter had that sweet,
that dignity of innocence, that no fashion i
blo training can ever confer, but which al
ways accompanies .1 tender heart and a re
fined imagination. Tho hours passed un
heard ; and llio days grew into weeks al
most unheeded by either of sis. 1 think,
for tho only time in my life, I saw Sir Hugh
seem quietly happy.
"I cannot recall any of our conversation,
but my memory of her is like the ell'ect of
any autumn day, and her beauty seem ti
havo been m ule of the tints of tho se.i-slicll'
tlio odor of jasmine and the fettered rays of
sunshine. 1 watched Sir Hugh closely, and
he did not foiget his usual caution. His
bearing toward her as-umed a high tone of
gallantry, mingled with sternness which 1
knew was effected ; for several time when
ho thought hini.elf unobserved, I lead in
his glance a passionate devotion which made
me know that there was the talisman which

our intention to leave, nor do I know how

not at all surprised.
Tho last evening of our stay was unusual

where juusic, song and subdued tones of con

place. I had never seen tho lady, but ru
mors of her beauty, high birth and fashion
able prestige had reached me, and I felt no
little curiosity to see the future bride.
The day of her arrival was exceedingly
sunny, and with the bustlo of arrival, the re
ception of strangers, the supper, tho loud
music and merry laughter, tho old house
seemed for a time completely transformed,
and I almost wondered if all my former life
had not been a concatenation of dre.ims,and
if this were not my first awakening to ac
tual life. Nothing had before ever worn
such a look of reality. The bride was a
stately beauty, her personal charm being
such a wero grasped ut a glance, consisting
of regular feature, fino eyes and noble car
ri ige.
Some of the guests remained several weeks;
fir Sir Hugh was a graceful and graciou
host; but I could see how little his heart
was in all these gay manilestation. At
ngth all the visitors departed, and tiling
resumed llieir usual routine.

ho sought neither pleasure nor pain iu fan

therefore if her lord dispensed the hospi

It was not long before everything as
sumed the moody look that again rented on
Sir Hugh, for I verily bclievo thu master spir
it In a household does endow mute siirroun-

was we.ilt'-'y and possessed a physlcil vivac

over it all. I know that I felt grateful to
her for giving a wholesome) air lo tho daily
occurrence of our establishment. I wa that sho had the faculty of always be
ing able to talk and laugh about common
place thing i in a commonplace manner, and
I found that tho tact of my finding reliel in
this daily chat ma le me very companionable
to her, and rulliced for much negligence on
the part of Sir Hugh, who nivir made, or
seemed to make, any effort to adapt him-elf
to ,her society. Thing wore on this way

summed up for her all tho vivid enjoyments
of existence.
' 'This i actually tho fifth of September,'
I said wiie morning; at breakfast, 'The air
is keen enough to make hunting very en
joyable.' ' 'You could not havo hit my mood more
exactly,' siid Sir Hugh ; 'and let us start
before the edge is taken oil' the air. I lovo
to feel my cheeks tingle with the cold
while I am pursuing my game.'
'The day could not have beei better suit
