will, however, for the amusement of my

honor Which took plaeeiu a district of Mun

Albeit a wild locality, so far as the natu

double reason of concealment and eupliony
I shall call it! was a tolerably peaceable
place, viewed Wlthrespect to its inhabitants.
Burring the occasional beating of a tithe
proctor, or duCking of a sheriff's officer, the
country for miles. around the village; Which
gave it a name, was singularly free from
agrarian Outrage. The land was divided in
t) moderately-sized estates, each supporting

a rich old bachelor, residing in a very pretty
cottage close to the boundary hedge of a
large estate which had lain for some time
unoccupied.. The dwelling of Mr. Foote
stood in the middle of w beautifully culti
vated- pleasure ground, a wilderness of
sweets, where the emerald turf of • the lawn
was soft and rich and as though it
lay in the heart of England's sunny Hamp
shire. A kind man was Mr. 'Foote, beloved
by the squires, with whom he never quar
reled, when in the heat of the ()base, follow
ing the hounds in full cry after reynard,
they trampled his harvest fields. He was
beloved by them, I say, nptwithstanding his
uniform desertion of the dining room after
the first magnum of claret had gone its
rounds; a grievous derelictidn from the
rules of good fellowship which would not
easily have been pardoned in any one else;
but Mr. Foote was a privileged man, and,
as the ladies were wont to remark, 'it was
really a comfort to feel sure of having one
gentleman steady on his legs in the drawing
room, so that one might venture to give him
a cup of coffee without the chance of lav
ing half of it spilled on one's best satin ;' 'With the - yOung•peOple was '4ll es Pe
chi! favOrite. No better partner in, `ISW IR4-
ger de Coverly,PM. merrier opponent tip
game of Matrimony,' could be fotind in
the entire country; while his skill in making
' burleys' fof theboys and carving woodeii
babies for the girls, secured for him a wide
spread popularity among the rising genera
tion. By common consent he was known
in ,this neighborhood as `Holy Foote,' and
this'epithet was bestowed not. in ridicule,
hut as a sincere acknowledgement of his
singular blameless and useful life. Perhaps
it, was also meant to commemorate a pecu
liarity in his character—he was never known
to fight, From the tithe proctor, whom he
hospitably entertained and regularly paid—
an unprecedented line of conduct, which
caused that much-enduring man to exclaim,
Sure, Barnagore would be a heaven upon
earth if every man in it was like Mr. Holy
Foote'—from the tithe proctor down to the
urchins, whom he often caught snaring
hares or cutting sticks in his wood y he nev
er abused any one or quarreled. - let Holy
Foote was no coward; that the poor w z idow
at the mill could testify, whose_ fair-hpireo
boy-lie had. siied fronvdroWning by jittrip•
in! , into the mill pond at the imminent risk
of his life. And when Torn Maloney's
house was burned, A'ho but Holy Foote
could be found to tread the falling floor,
and while with one hand clinging to the
blackened rafters with the other seizing in
succession three'children and handing them
safely to Chore outside? Mr. Foote, inshort,
was that-1 grieve to say it—Anomalous

rose; a very bad business. Why, man, ra

fight the reseal myself.'
Thank you, my friend,' rerilied Foote;
'I feel most grateful for your kindness; but
since Mr. 31agennis has chosen to take of
fense that is causeless, I am resolved to give
him the meeting he desires. Perhaps, ne
added, smiling, ' the result may be better
than you expect.'
" Oh, my dear Foote,' said his friend, 'I
beseech you, don't build on that. The fel

deserts would long since have gained pro
motion at the hangman's hands. However,
there will he a score or two of your friends

With this somewhat equivocal piece of
consolation and a hearty shake of the hand
Mr. Penrost! took leave of his friend, who
dining the remainder of , ,the.-day stayed in
do - ars and ilecliried'seeing iniy Visitors.
On the, followingmorning a large con
course of people, including indeed nearly
every inhabitant of the, parish,, ,assembled
on the comnon to witness the approaching
combat. Long and loud were the lamenta
tions f poorer people, Who had expe
rienced much kindness from Mr. Foote, at
the fate which awaited him; while the deep
ened tones ;led darkened looks of the gen
tlemen-testified their sympathy with him
..and their utter abhorrence of his antagonist.
Precisely at twelve o'clock Magennis ap
peared on the field, mounted on a splendid
blood horse; a dagger was stuck in his belt,
and he brandished an enormous two-edged
sword in his hand. He cast a glance around
full of scorn, and not seeing his opponent,
exclaimed, without addressing any one in
particular: i rt• .;
!I thought the cowardly fool would be
afraid to `meet me; but if ho sneaks, attay,
perhaps one of hiS friends (with a sarcastic
en phasis) will take his pike.'
