THE MAJOR'S GHOST.
It wftH tlio twelfth fiiintial dituicrof tlio

jnpinin were Heaieit nrounti .1 tunic
loaned wiin wino anti lnnt. o were
the remainder of tho club, which origin
illy contained all tlio olliccrn ot our rum-
nicnt who had survived tho war. At
llrst there wero lifteen of us, but tho
ardsliips and wounds of these four bit
or years had taken tlio others away,
Every year thero was ono plato less, and
o began to look: on our hum dissolution
Uut wo tour had met tlio previous year
and gladly drained a glass to tho discom
fort of tho broken spell.
It had not been our lato to have tlio
famo of viotorv wLhout toil, for ours
ad been a fighting regiment. Dangers
shared together had strengthened the
loud of friendship, and tlieso yearly
meetings were rich in stories of old
imes stories of daring, or of tho kind
es of some who had gono to eternal
est. None of us wero old men. I ho
Colonel wa just -10, tho Major was .'15
and tho Captain was 33 and 1 six years
ins junior, wo wero an marricu except,
tho Major, and it was n wonder to us
mat ho was not married, lor tno junjor
was just the man who could havo mado
a good and truo woman's life bright and
Handsome, brave, genorous,a delight
ful talker, an author of no common mer
it, and possessed of a fortune ample
anoiitrli to make tno world s cointorts
end luxuries accessible, the Major was
much souj'ht in society and was ever
ready to respond to tho call. Hut
while attentive to all women with whom
ho was thrown in contact, ho was noted
for tho impartiality with which ho be
stowed these attentions. "Wo knew that
ho could easily carry off a desirable vr'r.o
but ho never mado the attempt.
As our knowledp'o ot Ins character had
shown us his chivalrous devotion to
women, and as we knew that durini; our
acquaintance ho had never had pref
erence for any special one, we wero puz
zled to know why tins was so. c had
mado him the point of subtle attacks re
garding the matter, but the .Major was
a- cood strategist, and ho turned tho
Hank of every lorward movement wo ass-
aved in this direction, divertint our tall,
into other ehanels, until at last we had
dropped the matter as one that might
touch on a sorrow of which wo knew
nothini'. Tho talk had been lively all
throtiEh the evening, centreing about
reminiscences ot loviai limes (lunn
raid we had made, which had been pro
lilio of amusing adventure
Tho Major had shown at his best,
and we had listened to hishumerous nar
rative with keen delight. So tho dinner
had passed and tlio desert was before us
tlio servants had been dissmissed and ci
gars wero lit. Then ono of those uuac
countable silences that come to such as
semblages fell upon us, and wo puffed
lway at our cigars and said nothing
until the stillness crew strangely wein
Suddenly tho Maj'or stopped snioak
mir, and, looking at each ot us in turn
said, 'sYou have often wondered why
am not married, and now 1 will tell
"it is a long story, ma it may no ot
interest to you, and as wo are all that is
left I have thought that the secret should
bo between us.
"When tlio war camo I had just grad
uated trom the college, and, as you
know, enlisted as a private. It was no
easy matter for mo to do this, but
felt it to bo my duty. Iwasyoung.strong
and ablo to light. 1 had means to make
tlio life of r. soldier as comfcrtablo as it
could bo made, and, while my mind Ion
cd for literary and peaceiul scenes,
still felt that I owed my country a duty
It was but a short tiino alter 1 enlisted
when wo were ordered South. Tho regi
nient, as you know, had hard work ane
plenty of it, but my part was as well re

Finally, there was a long and ineffectual
struggle against tho Anglo-Xorman con-

ather than better. The English treated
Ireland neither as a colony according to
modern maxims, nor as an integral part
of tho realm of England. They kept it
down Iby force; and to help them in do
ing so, they partitioned a great part of
tno country among Jingiish generals and

shall briefly point out what, according to

principles on which farms for ngiicultu-

several hundred ncres. The tenant must

all that is required for his accommoda

has no transaction with the incoming
tenant further than receiving payment
for the crop Iu tho ground. Selling tho
good will of a farm is unknown. Such
is the practico of land tenure iu Scotland.
where ii not absolutelv perlrct, it is as
nearly so as in nny pnrt of llio world.
Tho system evidently imposes heavy ob
ligations on tho landlord; but these are
nccepted ns n matter of course. Whero
nn owner cannot overtake theso obhgn
tions, ho must either borrow money or
sell out. So clearly nro tho mutual duties
of landlord and tenant defined, that usu
ally no disputes arise. Wc maintain
that it would not bo easy to improve on
these primary arrangements.
An a rule, so tar as we can gather.lhe
simple and efficacious process of laud
tenure now described is reversed in Ire
land. The outlay for dwelling houses,
fences and other improvements i thrown
on the tenant who hns a precarious occu
pancy, nnil may bo evicted without
compensation,- on failing to pay his rent.
jmi nisii cui respondent, willing in inu
limes. October fl, nnd who gives nis
name and nddress, explicitly says of Irish
tenant larmers: "all the buildings, len-
ces, larnt roads, surlace improvements,
nnd the drainage connected with tho
Irish landed property, aro tho invest
ments of the tenants. F.ven whero the
landlord borrows money for drainage
purposes from the Hoard of "Works, the
tenant is made to repay in the shape oi
increased rent, and is therefore tho per
son who has mado tho expenditure iu the
end." In this statement there arc per
haps exaggerations; but, undeniably
there is n very common practice in Ire
land ot throwing the cost ot dwelling
houses and some other essential charges
on the tenant. It can scarcely bo other
wise; ior whero landlords have hundreds
if not thousands of small tenants, they
could not provide them nil with houses,
nnd aro lrom sheer necessity obliged to
let them construct dwellings for them
selves. We nro prepared to learn that
these outlays of the tenants aro consid
ered iu the adjustment of rent; but tho
practice is wholly inconsistent with laud
tenure, and is seemingly tho fertile source
of disputes and entanglements.
Admitting that tho statements on the
subject are substantially true, we are en
titled to say, thnt here, staring us m tho
face, is tho cause of all the uproar iu
Ireland an enormous mass of small
tenants occupying the soil. The land
lords, it may be said, tdid not create tho
tenants. In the desperate struggle for
existence, the tenants came to the land
lords and bid one. ngainst the other for
their respective holdings. That may ac
count for tho manner in which tho small
tenure system began; but, it insufficiently
justifies its continuance from generation
to generation, when, by the multiplica
tion of fanulics, the system goes beyond

their absenteeism, carelessness or extrav

Wc do not deny that there aro good and
humane landlords in Ireland, who have
enlarged their farms to proper dimen
sions, and spent considerable sums on
pernuinent improvements. Unlit is not
to tliOM; wo allude. We arc speaking of
the hosts of landlords with swarms of
small tenants, whose condition is an an
omalny, an anachronism, a national scan
dal; nnd wo ask with some reason, why
the empire at large is to bo continually
tortured with reports of misery and dis
order, arising out of tho blundering man
agement of tills class of Irish cstatCK? Tt
was lately stated iu a newspaper, that a
certiain nobleman in Ireland had a thou
sand tenant farmers with rents not abovo

landlord publicly makes tho avowal: "I
