THE GREEN CHADIBER:
TIIE MIDNIGIIT VISITOR.'
In my younger days, ghost stories'
were the :most popular narratives extant,
and the lady or genlleman who could recite
the. most thrilling adventure, involving a
genuine spiritual visitant, was sure to be the
lion or-lioness of the ;evening party he en
livened (?) with the dismal details. - The
elder audit6rs -never seemed particularly
horrified or. terror-sticken,. however imuch

failure. The young people of to day make
light of ghosts.. 'The spectres in the incan
tation scene of " Der Freyschutz" are re
ceived with roars of laughter, and even the
statue in Don Giovanni seems "jolly," not
withstanding the illusive music of:Mozart.
We were about to remark that the age had
outgrown superstition, but we remembered
the Rochester -knodkings, and concluded to
be modestly silent.
One evening, many years since, it was a
blustering December evening,' the wind
howling as it dashed the old buttoniwood
limbs in its fury .against the parlor windows
of the country. house where a few of us
wvere assembled to pass the' winter holidays;
we gathered hefore a roaring fire of walnut
and oak, which- made everything within
doors as cheeryrand comfortable, as all with
out. was desolate and dreary. - The window
shutters were left unfastened, that the bright

Aunt Deborah smiled at our earnestness,
and fantalized our inmpatience by some of
those little arts,. ivith which the practised'
story-teller enhances the value and interest
of 'her narrative. She. tapped her silver
snuffbox, opened -it deliberately, took a
very delicate pinch of the Lundy Foot, shut
the box, replaced -it in her pocket, folded her
hand before her, looked 'round a minute on
the expectant group and then began.
I shall despair or imparting to this cold
ven and ink record of her story the inimit
ble conversational grace with which she
embellished it. It made an indelible im
pression on my memory, and if I have nev
er before repeated it, it was from a lurking
fear that-though the old lady assured us it
was " not to he found in any book or news
paer-it might have found its way into
print. However, as twenty years have

country. Thiough not raining, the air was
damp, and the heavy, surcharged -clouds
threatened every moment to pour down their
contents. But the- Major, thoughsa young
man, wvas an old 'cainpaigner; 'and with a
warm cloak wrapped about him; and a good
horse .under him, would have cared very
little for storm and: darkness, had he felt.
sure of a good bed .for himself~, and'com
fortable quarters for his horse wvhen he had.
ridden far enough for the. strength 'of his
faithful animal. A good horseman cares as
much for the 'comifort of his steed as foi his
own 'case. To add to the disegmfort- of the
evening, there wvas some chance of. meeting
highwaymen; but Major Stanley felt no un
easiness on- that score, as, just before. leaving
'his friend's house, he :had examinied- his
holster-pistols;" and freshly' primed them.
A brush with a highwayman would enhnee
the romance of a nig'ht journey.
So be jogged along; but mile after mile
was passed, and no twinkling light in the
distance gave notice of the appearance of

" Eli! it be about zeven mile, zur," w-as

of the district..
" Seven miles !" exclaimed the Major, in

"Mine host" was an old campaigner, and
had seen much service during the war of
the American Revolutidn, and he was full
of interesting anecdotes and. descriptions
of adventures. But while Major Stanley
was-apparently listening attentively to the
narrative of his hospitable entertainer,
throwing in the .appropriate ejaculations if
surgrise and pleasure at the proper intervals,
his. whole.attention was in reality absorbed
by a charming girl of twenty, tie- (laughter
of the colonel, who graced the. tabli with
her presence. Never, lie thought, had he
seen so beautiful, so modest and so lady-like
a creature; and she, in turn, seemed very
favorably impressed with the manly, beauty
and frank .manners of their militai'y guest.
At length she retired. .The colonel-, who
wa a three bottle iman and hd found a
litener to-his heai-t, was somewhat inclined
to prolong iho session into the sinall'houts
of the mom nins: hut findnlie that- his~guest

vited to repiose; -a cheerful fire was blarzing
on the hearth, - and everything. was cosey
and quiet. . The Major looked -rpund hbim
with a smile of satisfaction. -
" I am deeply indebfed'to you,'Colonel,"
said he, " for affording mesuch comfortable:
quart'ers. I shall sleep like a top.?'
" I am-afraid not," answered the colomiel,
shaking his head gravely. " I never -knew
.a guest of ininen to passed a quiet night-in~
the -Green Chamber." --
" I shall prove an excej~tion,' sai d the
Major, smiling. -"-But I mbake one remark;"
headded seriousl y. -" It is ill sporting wvith:
the feelings -Of-a soldier; and should any of
iour servants -attempt to -play 'trielts upon
ime they. will have occasion :to repent it."
And he laid his heavy pistol on the light-.
stand by his- bedside. -
"My servants, Major StanleyP said the
old gentleman, with:an air, -of offended dig.
ity, "are too well drilled to dare attempt
any tricks upon my guests. -" Good night,
"-Good.night, Colonel." -
The door:closed. >Major-Stanley dJocked
it.- Havings dohe so, he took a survey- of
the apartment. Beside the door opening
into the entry, there was knother loading to
some other room. TIh'ere was no lock upon
this second door, but . heavy table placed
across, completely barricaded it.
