CORRESPONDENCE OF TTIE GLORE.
Letter from a Hayfield.
BROAD Toe, July 17, 185(1.
bEArt GLOBE :—Carpet-sack in hand, the
other morning, I escaped into the B. 'l'. one
car nassenger train, with a voice calling after,
"Going to Bedford ?"
" 0-p-h," I responded., flattered with the
putative fashionableness of visiting " the
Springs." I - wouldn't lose the prestige of it,
and mean to go before all is over, for the sake
of variety, and to report progre3s : but mean
while have met a hayfield 1:3 - the way, and
concluded to live out this week in clot er.-

be supposed inconipa tilde with the gastron
omic requirements of Fremont and ii fellows
accustomed to masticate mule and luxuriate
in dog-soup. But intense regard 11,r truth
obliges me to explain that the phrase, which
is a common one, about living in clover, is
only used. metaphorically. Perhaps with the
"Nebuchadnez•,,ar, king of the Jews,
Whb pulled off his stockings to lint on his shoes,
there has been no human beiirg whose mem
ory is now extant, who literally did eat grass.
• Having rendered the first statement coin
prehensible about the hay, it is perhaps due
that a word should be said of the:field, which,
not to be disingenuous, can hardly in justice
be styled a common hayfield. In fact, lam
now tracing these lines reclining magnificent
ly on the shady side of a rye-shock. Let not
that shock you with misgiving as to the wri
ter's -veracity. Paradoxical as it may seem
to talk of epistles from meadows composed in
the very shadow of rye, you should nut make
wry faces on suspicion, nor shake your head
ominously, as though you feared your corres
pondent might be lying under the influences
of old rye.
To avoid circumlocution, the case stands
thus—and you shall accord me some ingenu
ity in being able to explain the matter entirely
to your satisfaction.
Last night, I watched• the moon rise over
Grave Mountain, `• round as the shield of my
fathers." I slept in a farm-house, and awoke
to the music of grinding scythes.
I sprang up, freshas a lark, with the ex
clamation, "I will do it!"
—The narrative intensifies, and we must
put in the short paragraphs. (Short para
graphs are; " fat," as the printer will under
What was proposed to redone, was to make
hay—to make it even (as the aphorism goes)
while the sun shined.
I did so.
And - the consequence is—blisters.
I had 'been visited with a dream of early
days—a blessed morning dream of that golden
time of boyhood, when the hayfield loomed
up 'glorified in fancy,, dearer far than fabled
Garden of Hesperides.
And„lo the realization.
I have been to and gone and did it.
Nor do-I regret. '
I can iiosv gntO the" Springs a conscientious
invalid—have `i wounds:and bruises." But
let none insinuate ought about weakness of
the brain.: or let them bave:this . for such te
merity,—there is a dryness of the soul; indi
cated by thickness of the skull, that the at
trition of -"many waters" cannot cure, nor
all the dienching billows of Time's majestic
river.-. • ••;: .
But this is digressing. •
To return, as before stated, I have had a
time of it.
" Immediately after:higlareakfast, I found
myself, "with buskins"gemmed in deW,"
lciwing after the mo*ers. I yielded .to the
suggestion of one, and tetik his scythe. At
first, I have little doubt, it was done. awkward
ly; at least, so it was said. :But, "man is a
creature •of imitation," and. I soon laid over
the " dead loads" of timothy.
I mowed a broad swath•. '•• - • '
The sounding blade . cut through a black
snake; but I went on—triumphantly- on.—
. 89entit with a rush,
Then came the "ten o'clock piece.'" That
Immemorial ten o'clock piece I honor
thee. The Romans ate lout twice da:; - :.Ve
can afford it oftener. Hence the peculiar
beauty of our institutions, transcemiing
of " Gi•eek or Roman fame—of pricelesr
worth to the lean Cincinnatus of the West.
O? Globe: the ten o'clock piece was not
sent back to the &use untouched. On the
contrary, it wasn't sent back at all. We were
not dyspeptics=not we.
•But we sent the basket back.
Then came a change over the spirit of my
dream. I thought of Burchell as he wooed
his Sophia whilst raking up the windrows ;
and of all the clear family of Parson Prim
rose. Blessings on thee, forever, Oliver Gqd
sMith, fur the truthful creation (truthful in
natural glory,) of thy Vicar of ifrahefield.-
Unforgotten Moses• Primrose, thou bloomest
in the aromatic Eden of letters immortally
- I went to raking hay—Arcadian pastime L---
with a nut-brown maiden, a real live one, "to
bring in the other side." Dinner was got
over, and the middle of the afternoon reached
in tranquility. Yet we raked, whilst great
crlobules of sweat rained down the glowing
cheeks of the rustic maiden lvho brought in
the other side.
Then . was I sore stricken with blisters in
the dexter and the sinister paw, and even upon
several of the digitalS.
I surceased.. The dream was ended. I
gazed upon the receding form of the maiden
toiling her way down the assymptotean vista
of two long windrows. I-vamosed, cut, ab
squatulated, left incontinently.
I challenged the.youngest boy about for a
game at mumbley-peg; classical amusement,
but he couldn't indulge—had prior
ment to rake after "the wagon, a few days,
a few days."
.With portfolio and Prince's Protean pen, I
sought the cooling umbra of this shock of rye,
falling like " the shadow of a great rock 'in a
And now it is time that it should be more
fully explained why this is to be, respected as
a letter from a hayfield. You must not ask,
if it is that I remark anything green ; for hay
is dry, but less musty than such attempt at
wit would be. It is simply because .eleven
twentieths of this field is in bona fide clover,
and the remainder in rye. The clover is in
the majority, and the Constitution democratic.
That settles it. But if there be any doubt
upon the mind of the most fastidious as to
the logical correctness of the position here
maintained, I will adjourn dyer to an oak be
yond the rye margin, and close.
But first, one look at this landscape. We
(the rye and I) are in a ten acre enclosure
upon that side of Broad lop which slopes to

poetic ; but the scene is beautifully grand.—
