Of duties done, and done full well,
Performed from day to day;
Of calnrc contentment and repose;
Of rest that virtue only knows,

A GHOST STORY.
Id 1839 , I had hired at 'Verriores,
Charming village coquettishly situated
midway on one 'of the wooded slopes of
the forest which bears its name, a simple
'pottage where I designed to spend the
Summer with my wife and presumptive
heir, a pretty and plump boy of a year
old, raised in the country, and who,
thanks to the fresh air, exercise, and
healthy life of the fields, did, I assure you,
Credit to his nurse. My cottage consisted
Of a square pavillion covered with tiles,
composed of a basement and one story,
and situated at the extremity of the, vil
rage iu a retired Ilane leading to the coun •
try, as its name indicated : "Road to the
vineyards." , •
An oblong garden, of about an acre,
inclosed by walls garnished with trellises,
and whose principal entrance was adorned
t;ly an iron gate with pillars, the only am.
bilious decoration of this modest retreat,
lily before the cottage, which was built at
the extremity of the. inclosure,and reached
by.a gravelled walk, bordered on each side
with fruit trees in full bearing. Before
die house stood a group of Bengal roses,
and on the right and left, fronting aide
Porches, each lighted. by two windows
only, were grassy lawns of nearly four
yards square, which had first attracted
Me, because I saw there a natural carpet
very well calculated for the sports of my
newly weaned baby, just beginning to
learn to use his teeth and limbs.
The whole, furnished comfortably, not
luxuriously, but with everything neces
sary in country life, had been let to me
for five hundred francs, by the proprietor,
M. Roux, ex-apothecary,Rue Montmartre,
the inventor of a celebrated deutrifide.
The young are not difficult; I was young,
then, and had one conclusive reason for
idolized and who rendered me happy, I
dreamed of perfect love, like an Arcadian
shepherd, and these five words, a cottage
mu/ her heart, the eternal romance of
yOuth, would have led me to the end of
When spring came, and the lilacs, of,
which there. were' whole thickets in ou
inclosure, blossomed, arrived a fortunate
couple to take possession of our little do
maiu, my wife having never yet seen the
house or garden i they pleased her, per
haps for reasons similar to my own. She
was kind enough to find everything to
her taste, and even the gardiner, ex
pressly included in the inventory of fix
tures, and who was not, to tell the truth;
the least useful article of furniture.
Paid by the proprietor, all his duties
were comprised in taking care of the gar
den, showing the cottage to visitors, and
airing the apartments by occasionally
opening the windows. If the situation
was not very lucrative, it was not diffi
cult to fill. So M. Roux had confided it
to the first one who came to hunt, that is
to say, a simple peasant of the neighbor
hood, tbe'inhabitant of one of the only
two houses which now stood ou the road
to the vineyards.
Biondas St. Foy, with an air as clown
ish as that witty singer, Gilkin, with his
long, straight locks, his pug nose, his
porcelain blue ejes, and fat, projecting
che6lts, slightly ruddy, would have, fig
urea admirably on the rustic stage. A
genuine peasant of the opera, be had both
the: physique and the character of the
situation. So when, in the Intervals of
liberty allowed him by the culture of his
fields, the produce of which be regularly
sent to market, a;cording to the invaria
ble custom of, farmers in the neighbor
hood of Paris,.he' bad time to come and

COUDERSPORT, POTTER COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY APRIL 2.7, 1864;
our carrots, which happened two or three
times a week, and took about half a day
each time; on those days, whoever had
come to pay a visit to my wife or myself
and looked for us in the house, would
certainly have lost his trouble.
Arm in arm, and braving the hottest
sun, madame, with her parasol and her
pretty scarlet sun-bonnet, so becoming to
her twenty years, and I, with an immense
straw hat, worthy of a pure blooded
American planter, closely followed Gil
bert. The honest youth had scarcely ar
rived, when, prond;ofhaving a gardener,
we went, like genuine Bcetians that we
were, to sit beside bim while he worked,
with spade or watering-pot in hand, and
you should see what a mischievous pleas
ure we then took in overwhelming him
with a multitude of questions as absurd
as his replies; in hearing him reason
gravely on the rain and fine . weather;
discuss the influence of heat and cold;
describe his hopes and fears relative to
the approaching harvest; curse the race
of foxes and weasels, nocturnal marauders,
not waiting for license from the vintagers
to ravage their best vines; in fine, to
study in all his plipses . this honest villa
ger, who, having arrived at the age of
thirty, had a wife and child, paid his
taxes, figured on festival days in a Gaul
ish blouse in the ranks of the citizen
militia, and had never in his life, except
in one excursion to Versailles, when he
saw the great fountains play, lost sight of
the steeple of his commune. What a
curious type 1 what an excellent and - kind
nature ! how many amusing simplicities,
how many charming stories he bad to tell !
the foolish laughter which suddenly seized
us in the midst of these stories, to the
great astonishment of our countryman,
always retaining his impurturbable gang
.1 raid, and looking at us with open mouth,
unable, to comprehend our explosions of
We had hardly been enstalled in our
rustic villa a week, when, one fine morn
ing, as we wore making a bouquet in a
magnificent border of vioets framing one
of the green lawns beneath our windows,
and in the corner of which figured a well
half hidden by a thicket of laburnums,
my wife said to me :
"Do you know,my love, what displeaSes
me here, and what I certainly would haie
removed this very moment if it depended
only upon me ?"
Without being a fine lady; my wife is
very impressible in her nature, and has
her little superstitions She believes in
the influence of Friday and of the num
ber thirteen ; au overturned salt-cellar,
two knives crossed affect her; a broken
mirror would make her sick ; at evening,
the murmur of running water, the 'drys•
curious whispering of the poplars, vivid
lightning, and the ncise of the thunder
produce an effect which she cannot avoid ;
adorable weakness, of which, in. my,opin
ion, I should do very wrong to complain.
"What is it?" asked I of my wife.
"That disagreeable weeping wi'low,
which stands in the corner of the !awl on
the right of the, well," replied she.
"And why so ?" returned I.
"You know very well," said she to me,
"that I cannot endure those trees, even
in painting; an ordinary willow can be
passed by in spite of the romance of
Othello, but these weeping willows—oh,
no! I cannot bear them." •
"I understand you, dear. friend; but
we 'have no occasion for grief, the child
is well, and we are both cheerful-enough."
"Come, you jest when the gravest hub
jects are concerned. You undoubtedly
have not forgotten the origin of. my an
tipathy for that hateful tree, which should
never be admitted into pleasure-grounds I
On passing the shop of Lemonnier, that
famous artist in hair, and examining the
frames exposed in his window, have you
not seen that melancholy shrub figure,
beside yews and cypresses, and shading
with its tearful tresses these mournful
words : he was a good husband• and
father. To our angel It is a tree suited
only to a cemetery, and standing here on
this turf, it annoys, it worries me."
"What a foolish idea," said I; "mean
while I will promise to say-a word on the
subject to Gilbert the gardiner ; we will
see when he comes whether we may not
be able to remove it."
At evening, when Madame Gilbert-re
turned from the • fields, kringing on h‘kr
shoulder her cow's supper, I invited her
to rest a moment as she was passing the
garden gate. and informed her, that she
might mention it to her husband, of the
desire expressed by my wife. . '
"Madame is in the right," said she to
me, "and she is not mistaken in her Sup
positions. They took very good care not
to tell you when you hired the house; the
proprietor, M. Roux, forbade us to do so,
but there is indeed some one buried there,
and, with her apprehensions, your wife is
nearer the truth than. you thought
That turf and weeping willow conceal
You will easily imagine how astonished
I Was at, this unexpeatad revelatioti; Q
• We had come into the country to avoid
the gloomy sights
,of the city, especially
to flee from the spectacle of all those hu
man miseries so little calculated to divert
even the most philosophical, in that vast
and-bill of which the great Parisian soci
ety is composed.
And we bad encountmed . precisely
what we wished to avoid ; we were, with
out having suspected it, the guests of
Death'; our garden was but a cemetery,
our villa a funeral lodge standing in the
midst of it, like those inhabited by the
hired guardians of our burying-grounds.
When our child, trying his new-born
era, was rolling •abOut this thick turf, so
green, so studded with white daisivi, 0
horror I 0 sacreligious profanation ! it Was
over a sepulchre, over a cold corpse that,
with his 'tattle in his hand, this dear little
creature was playing! You will imagine
that nothing more was necessary, not to
speak of the water of the well from which
we drank, and for the suspicious taste of
which I. thoguht I could now account, to
induce us to remove immediately.
"But this is an act of bad faith on the
part of the proprietor," said Ito Madame
Gilbert. "It is sufcient to cancel the
bargain, for people, will not endure such
impositions. Who- is buried there ?"
added I ; "a criminal, a suicide ! a miscre
ant who died without confession and could
not be buried in consecrated ground ?"
"Not exactly," replied my interlocutor;
"it is the former proprietress of the pa.
villion, Madame V—, the aunt . of the
famous painter, I have been told,„ whose
fina battle pieces Gilbert saw at - the mu
seum at Versailles one day when the
grand fountains were playing."
"Has this person been dead long?"
"About five years, I think. Yes, five
years at the approaching plum season."
"And why was she not buried, like
other people, in the village cemetery ?"
Madame Gilbert turned, and casting a
sty glance to the right and left as if to see
whether any one could hear what she was
about to say, replied:--
"Madame V— was a strong-minded
woman, a philosopher, I have been told.
You know there are ot ten such in artists'
families. She died at the age of eighty
sisi In her youth, before the first revo
lution, she had been acquainted with
many celebrated writers whom she often
quoted and whose works she knew by
heart; one M. Voltaire, who was a native
of the village of Chatenay, near here; a
' certain Itosseau, Messieurs Dident,
embert, and many others whose names I
do not remember, although they were in.
cessently in her mouth. Au amiable lit
tle woman she was, too, lively, witty,
agreerble ; charitable to the poor, and
much beloved by—our peasants, whom she
never hesitated to assist by her counsels
or her purse. But when she died, scarcely I
bent by age, still coquettish, reading the
newspaper daily without spectacles, it was
yonder, there, beneath that arbor of hon
ey-suckles, that she seated herself every
morning; and I see her still, with her
white sun-bonnet and farthingale of puce.
colored silk, she wished to remain faithful
to her principles, and as she did not be
lieve in much of anything, never went to
mass, entertained the curate only, as she
laughingly said, in hopes to convert him,
left a will in which, by a formal clause,
she requested to be buried in her own gar.
den, beside these eglantines which she had
herself set out and whose roses she loved
to cultivate. Her heirs fulfilled her last
wishes, and when M. Roux bought the
property the obligation was imposed on
him that he should respect this little
nook of land."
"Well, it is a disagreeable condition,
and if the house and garden were to be
sold again I would not buy them at any
price. Meanwhile I enjoin it upon you
not to say a word of all this to my wife.
I know her; if she should ever learn the
least thing which could confirm her in
her suspicioni, she would not remain at
Verrieres one hour. As for me,
I am go
ing to Paris to have a talk with the pro
As I was going without even returning
to the house to engage a place in the car

then made regular trips to the city, chance
willed it that I should encounter on the
way Father Michel, our baker, the dep
uty-mayor of the commune. I naturally
related to him my dissatisfaction and the
step I was about to take.
Father Michel was an excellent man;
he held me in great esteem, because that
before having established myself at Ver.
rieres, I had often made him a present of
the game I had killed in that vicinity.
"It is uselless for you to go to Paris,"
said he to me ; "on Saturday last, ,at the
request of M. Roux himself, the mnnioi
pal council decided to exhume Madame
and transfer her remains to the
neighboring cemetery. You Will imagine
that the interests of a proprietor 'would
prevail over the posthumotts request of an
old woman. The ceremony will take place
at noon tomorrow. - You.virill therefore do
well to. take your wife to Perin that very
evening, and not return till the day after.'
I itninediately' returned to Gilbert and
gave him my instructions. Calculating
that an absence of twenty-four hours would
be very abort, I resolved (this was Mon
day) not to return till the following Sat
urday'. It was agreed between the gar
denerland myself that he should remove,
witli i !he greatest care, all the turf cover
l e grave, replace it as carefully, lev
ellingiit so that his labor should not appear.
Fivie minutes afterciards : I had invented
a plausible excuse for the necessity of an
immediate departure, which was nothing
less titan a serious indispositi6 of my
in,othir, and, at ; four o'clock we left the
house ! taking with us our entire family.
After passing a few days in the capital,
we returned to our little villa. In the
mean time I had been officially informed
that the removal of the body had taken
place,in d the turf so ingenuously replaced
as toeave no trace of the operation. The
letter, which came from Fathei Michel,
annou Ind to me at the dame time, by Way
of pox l script, that my presence on the fol
lowing Saturday was indispensable at
;Verrieies, as the moon would their be
at•thel full, and a whole family of *easels
had been discovered, whose ument des
imperiously called for my devo
tions, kbat is to say, some hours of watch
passed in the forest at night.
At nine o'clock, therefore, on the eve
ning of my return, I set out in search of
my weasels: The weather was magnifi
cent and the moon at the full. No night
could have been more propitious, .never
theless my vigils were vain, for no sign
of a vteasel appeared, and after Waiting
till midnight I returned home.
I was but twenty paces from the house,
whosn white Walls, illuminated by the
rays of the moon, stood out from the dark
ground of the thickets behind it, and was
about io turn around the group of irengal
roses decorating its facad e, when, caking
my eys mechanically towards thesis feet
of tur' which, thrae days betore, still cov
ered-the sepulchre of Madame V—, I
remained petrified, immovable, dumb with
fear and horror.
Berieath the weeping willow which for
merly !shaded the tomb, Stood, vvrepped
in its shroud. the spectre of the departed.
It wri t i not an optical illusion, nor a hallu
cination of my disturbed mind. The
phantOm seemed to be awaiting me, wav
ilyg its arms as if trying to disengage
them from its white shroud ; and while its
bead reached to the uppermost branches
of the tree, its feet, nimbly agitating; hov
ered over, rather than touched the ground.
They seemed to be making ineffectual ef
forts tb detach themselves entirely and
advaoce to meet me.
A shudder of indeicribable terror ran
over and though not cowardly by na
ture,tl cold sweat stood on my forehead.
I tried to speak, but could not utter a
word ;11 tried to walk, but my limbs re
fused lo obey my will. At last, Imagin
ing myself to be the object of some trials,
I adjured the spirit to speak, threateninu
to tire upon it unless it answered my
Ibald scarcely uttered this threat When!
a flash of lightning, the first indication of
an. approaching storm, illuminated , the
whole !garden, an amid a gust of Wind,
which enveloped me in a cloud of !dust,
the phantom disappeared. This time I
could not doubt that it was, the shade of

and claring;in a few leaps Without daring
to turn myeyes in the direction of the
well, the distance which still, separated
me from the pavillion; I. rushed, more
dead tan !alive, into the bedchamber
where y wife was quietly reposing.

and especially. not to tell her of my nee
