A Recent Visit to Windsor.

tminese made it pleasant to led one c

Ihnt it were the lot of ninny lo enjoy rural
life inch as 1 enjoyed at, in the house of
tir. nnd Airs,.
Willi my hostess nnd friend 1 visited the
wealthy houses of some of their rural neigh
bours, furnished with nil the conveniences of
life, with exquisite urlich' of luxury, llowers,
paintings, slnlunry; I visited also the Jittlo
farmhouses and cotlngeg in the village, nnd
in the fields, where the people labor fur their
daily bread, nnd know little ufuny other lux
ury than that and rest.
The houses of the rich were richer in nohle
works of nrt thnn is common in the wealthy
houses of Sweden; the condition of the poor
aeemed to me nearer to that of our peasantry
in Sweden, but the dwellings were lighter,
more roomy, and above nil, much neuter.
This was in the county of Surrey.
One dny wo wero present nt n so-called
plowing match between the counties of
Surry and Middlesex. Tlio diy wus beau
tiful, nnd tlio scene new lind fresh, although
not ninny people were present, that is lo s.iy,
a few hundred peasant:), nnd uhout twenty
equipages. The country people, and most of
the midd'o class, ranged themselves like a
moving frame woilt lo the Held in which tlio
ploughing wni to take place. The carriages
were drawn up on n grecu mound which
commanded it. There also was erected n
white tent, before which stood a colossal besd
of Indian corn nnd hows of ribband, which
were intended, as I imagine, to accompany
the distribution of the pi iges. The people

themselves, tunny smoking their pipes. 1 km w

Surrey and Middlesex. The general opinion,
however, nppunrcU lo he in l.ivor ul a Aiidille

accurate furrows. And 1 learned in the
evening, that the prize hud been adjudged lo
In about an hour llm people collected to
gether on the mound w here the tent stood.
A sort of travelling carriage, full of persons,
drove up and made n hull there. One of the
gentlemen in the enrringo stood up nnd ad
dressed the people, and announced that
prizes would now be given as irwnrds for
faithful servitude in that neighborhood.
The speaker lamented, at tho same time,
that persona of ullluence thcro showed a de
creasing interest in this Institution, nnd that,
with every yenr, the subscriptions became
less, from which cause they were compelled
lo oiler smaller rewards, and to leave many
good servants, well deserving of rewind,
altogether without any. The speaker ad
monished the wealthy to warmer zeal in the
cause, en J more liberality in their contribu
tions. Alter this, several men nnd women of the
working chins wero culled forth, and these,
In appearance and dress, were not unlike our
(Swedish peasantry around Stockholm. They
advanced, each in bis place, to receivo tho
prizes, which consulted of money, from half-
crown to a sovereign. I could nave wished
the man a sort ol rural police or orderly
who culled out the servants, and who showed
them to their scats after they had received
their rewards, in some other place, with such
dry and uueourteoua manner did he perliuin
hie office, making a contrast equally striking
wilh the reul guullelulks as with the peas
antry. The whole scene gnvo me the impression
that this distribution of prizes, mere money
rewards of from live to twenty shillings, for
twenty or thirty years' faithful service, doe
riot belong lo the present oge, nnd certainly
aya as little for its conception of virtue, mid
virtue's reward, as of the necessity lor society
to stimulate il in ibis manner.
We were invited to a breakfast after tho
ploughing match, but, ns it was then late, we
preterred driving home, pausing by tho way
to observe some beauliliil views in that richly
cultivated country. How like u large, beau
tiful garden I
There grew upon the height where wo
tood, ninl I huve seen the same in many fields
of England, bushes not not unlike our Swe
dish juniper, hut which boro rciii.iknhly henu
liful yellow flowers, of the pea-blossom liirin.
Mrs. told me lliaiLiniiaiis, when he first
1 reme to England, and saw n field covered
' wilh these hushes, then in full bloom, threw
himself on his knees, nnd kissed the enrth
which produced flowers so beautiful. (Il
perhaps needle's lo mention, thai the flower
referred to is the yellow goise. 7Vaf.)
t One dny, one of my huuiitil'ol days at
we drove my amiable hostess and myself
to Windsor, w here Queen Victoria wus then
residing with her fuinily. The ensile nnd ils
neighborhood are among the most noblo nnd
most magnificent in England, and deserve to
lie visited for their own suke. Nevertheless,
it la Kssible that the chnuce which was thus
afforded ma of teeing England's Queen was
the attractive power in my cane. 1 had been
assured that I might easily he presented, but
there was not attractive power enough to
draw ine to the Queen on those terms, a
-then variotia requirements of Ilia toilet would
have had to be taken iuto consideration. Vet
surely, for stieh a womnn, and for nnch n I
J . . .... . . . 41
Queen, I might very willingly take n deal of
trouble, anil put on my lies! clotliea merely
for the pleasure of looking into her eyes and
touching her hand.
Lightly rolled our easy tittle rariisge on
our way to Windsor. The dny was mild,
but cloudy; we had both umbrellas and para
sols with us, that we might be prepared ei
ther for rnin or sunshine. Wo drove nlong
n enrden like, cultivated country, here nnd
there scattered over with peasants' cottages
nml pretty country residences. Alter nn
agreeable, drive of two hours, we reached the
park of Windsor, which npprnred to me ex

for she caino on slowly and looked quietly
nrniind her. She was dressed in n black

were dressed in black, all rode upon brown
horses ; the whole cnvulcmle looked as simple
nml unpretending as possible. I had my eyes
riveted upon Ihe Quern. She seemed in me,
between thn two lull gentlemen, almost like i

purts, did me now good service,
coucliiiiaii,one of Queen Victoria's lvul sub
jects, who had, during our drivn to Windsor,
been especially desirous nf avoiding a certain
heavy and sandy road, now finind renson for
not avoiding it. probably because tdie hail seen

was thai, to our surprise, we found ourselves,
nfter hull' an hour' ploughing nf thn sand,
rinse upon Queen Victoria' train. After wo
had driven tlnwly tor a fow minutes, the
Queen turned round, and motioned with her
hand for our coachman lo drive past them.
He obeyed, und just as we came past Ilia
Queen, he dashed forward in order lo cleur
the woy for her Majesty. We had not gone
fifty yards, w hen, in consequence of the rapid
movement of the carriage, una of thn doors
flew open, and nil the umbrellas and parasols
Hew up to rust themselves nn the ground nt
the feet of Queen Victoria. I caught ut
them, but loo lute to save my Sweedish um
brella, which resolutely seemed to fling itself
out of the carriage upon the road. My Swedish
umbrella ! my faithful companion during

in America and the West Indies no!
I could mil leave it hern to be trampled upon
by the lent of Queen Victoria' horse. I must

my irresolute, friend, "I must huve my um

Mrs. called lo her coachman to slop,
nnd I alighted from the carriage. Al the
si me moment up galloped the Queen nnd
Prince Albert, laughing nnd nodding kindly
to me, who could lint help Inujihing myself.
Then they rodo past im.niio of the gentlemen
indicating in us that the umbrelhi had been
picked up and restored In the hand of tho
cnneliuiun. I was glad to have recovered my
faithful travelling companion' nnd nlmost

There urocouuteiinnces.whii'h we may see
for whole days.aud yet not understand idem
until one has seen a tear in the eye. Oilier
countenances there ure.which are unexpluin
ed enigmas, until a smile, or a good, hearty
fit of laughter lights them up. And thus
wns it, when ictoria, laughing, and nodding
lo me, flew past me, light and airy as a fuirv
Queen. I at once understood the magic power
of her person; for, like sunlight breaking
through the cloud, liken flower burning from
its bud, was the laughter in Ihe Queen'
countonnnee. There was in it a high degree
or natural lite, freshness, vivacity, good hu
mnur, nn good dcnl of peculiar chnracter.
After this, I can easily comprehend whnt a
nohle Indy.who often sees Ihe Queen, said on
one occasion, in reply lo my remark, "Whnt
a little Queen you have ! " " Yes, she is a
a little Queen, hut on a large scale! She
seems to me always like a human being such

that it shall sometimes require half a lilt), liny,
that w e shnll not succeed sometimes through
the whole of life, in discovering what Ihe

It is ensy to aeo whnt a power of faclnn
tinn a Queen, perlcclly tinturnl in maimer,
nnd who possesses so much thai is naturally
nohle and good in character, may exescisn
over the humble mind in this nrtificinl world.
On our return from Windsor, we passed
