"Remimiscences of Bracebridge gall."
O a wet and stormy night in the early part of
April, 1864, the alarm of fire startled the in
mates of a hospitable and spacious mansion near
the town of N---, who, with some guests from
a neighboring town and district, and some near
neighbors, were spending the evening sociably
and pleasantly in the drawing room, with music
sud song at intervals by one of the guests, a
married lady, whose vocal powers were highly
appreciated by the good people of the town of
N-, several years ago. The flames had made
such progress that, before the family were aware
of it. they were bursting from the roof, illumi
nating the grounds around, and hadf been ob
served by some of the neighbors and persons
living a mile distant. The fire had originated in
the attic, from some cause yet unexplained, and
in an hour or two, the edifice which had been
built more than fifty years ago, and successively
enlarged by two generations, was a heap of un
sightly ruins. And here it might be appropriate
to give a brief history of the place in arebtolo
gical style, though the annals do not run back
into antiquity very far ; but as we have not
many centuries in our history as a nation, even
ffty or sixty years back seem very primitive. In
abort, then, the nucleus around which successive
additions or formations have clustered, was kilt
originaily by a progenitor of the writer, Col. R-,
whose history is closelyv associated with the early
settlement of the district and town. he being an
emigrant from the mother of States or the old
Dominion, so-called, I believe, from her adher
ence in colonial times to the royal cause in opposi
tion to Cromwell and the Commonwealth,or to the
House of Stuart instead of the House of Hanover.
To this original settler of "Bracebridge Hall,"
succeeded, but not in direct succession, once of
the step-sons of Col. R--, who enlarged the
main building and added the projecting wing
which is only one story and resembles the chan
cel of a church, especially in its present state,
which looks not unlike a Norman or Gothic ruin,
lhough the architecture does not make such high
pretensions.* The more modern part of the
ruins bear a faint resemblance to the magnificent
remains of Kenilworth Castle, without, however,
the mantle of ivy which clothes the medieval
ruins of that once gorgeous and almost palatial
structure, some of the leaves of which the writer
once brought away as a souvenir of the place.
The last mentioned proprietor of "Bracebridge
Hall" was succeeded by one of his own sons,
erhose occupancy and-improvement of the house
and'grounds, and whose reign of hospitality this
sketch is designed to commemorate, and which
was so rudely interrupted by the conflagration
already described. So much for the brief history
of "Bracebridge Hall", the Second, as a dear
fried and fellow-soldier of the writer, (killed at
the battle of the Wilderness,) used to call it,from
its great hospitality, of which he and others of
us had had ample experience in happy days before
the war and during furloughs at home. He with
myself and other friends were in camp near Bris
tol, Tenm, when a letter came to one of our num
her -dth this endorsement on the hack "the resi
dence of- burned down last night, April 4th."
This sententious and oracular endorsement struck
like a knell on the hear.ts o! some four of us who
had good cause to. regret the burning of "Brace
bridge Hall," the Second.
The house had been greatly enlarged a few
years ago, so that its spacious corridors crossing
each other and communicating between the old
building and tihe new, gave an idea of ample
space beneath the roof, and nooks and corners
which suggested games of "hide and seek", such
as the un fortunate Ginevra(whose story is so beau
tifully told by Sa muel Rogers,in his poem of 'Italy')
amil the bride of Iord Lovell in the romantic
and melaucholy ballad of the "Mistletoe Bough"
indulged in when each one of those unfortunate
brides hid herself in an old oak chest, "whbich
closed with a spring", and which stood in some
out of the way gallery or garret, where she never
was found till her bones had mouldered and "her
4 bridal bloom lay witheri ng there in a living,tomb"
to use the language of the poet who has celebra
ted the merry bridal and it.s melancholy ending.
"-Bracebridge gall," the Second, before the
renaiss8ance looked quite English-like, as many
remerked, with its walls of light drab rough-cast
and its substantial structure so suggestive of du
rability, and its delightful and-. dignified retire
ment. Since the latter anlargemnent or a,ddition
to the house, though more imposing as ,well as
more irregular and rambling, it was not impro)ved
in symmetry, and partook less of the character of
a plain, simpio, English country house, but its
commodiousness was greatly increased, and con
sequently its acity for hospitable entertain
ment as well as fo the demands of a numerous
household. The two acious parlors added' to
the front with large folding doors opening upon
a wide entrance hall, formed a suite which were
admirable for large entertainments, daniQing soi.
rees or for tableazux vivanit. .The two large
sleeping apartments above these rooms were
pleasantly-situated, and on one side commanded
a fi,ne view of the town as well as the intervening
country, and the, champaign beyond. And theni
the little haniging'side portico at the end of the
corridor, running north and south, which looked
southward and seemed suspended in the air, was
a fine stand-point or look-out from which to view
the undulating and pi'turesque landscape. It
was pleasant on a wintry night or a dark, wintry,
rainy spell of weather, to be domesticated at
Bracebridge with a party of congenial guests or
visitors, male arid female, who, with the very ge
:fuial and agreeable host and hostess formedl a
little circle of most delightful social enjoyment.
* Since this article -was w-ritten, the Gothis and
'Vandals, alias the utilitarians, have torn down
part of the ruins for the use of' the brick in
building. The pleasaunce which had been so
,carefully laid out in meandering walks, edged
with boxwood, and planted out with handsome
shribbery, roses and evergreens, was ploughed
up, after the enclosure had been taken away and
-planted in corn, and there is now no trace of it
left, n?either tree nor shrub.

The Mobile Theatre.
.A scene not on the bills-Yankee Doodle hissed
Indignation of' Army officers.
From the Mobile Regi.ster & Advertiser we
taake the following article, giv'ing a statement of
an unfortunate occurrence -at the Mobile theatre,
on Wednesday and Thiursday nights of last week,
and the commnents of the editor upon them:
TbeMfobile theatre was the scene of a very un
to the decree of the war,and have held that both
wisdom and duty enjoined a renewal of allegiance
to the Government of the United States. Hav
ing taken the oath ourselves, we have been faith
ful to it. We did not, however, take an oath of
allegiance to any party, especially such a party
as the Radical Disunionists, which ii now oppo
sing the noble efforts of the President to restore
tranqui!ity to the country, by reuniting the bro
ken fragnent< under one protecting government.
This party is not less the enemy of the North
than it is the enemy of the South, for its policy
looks to ravishing from the lips of the North the
fruits of that triumph of arms which iy paid for
in becatombs of lives and mountains of treasure
that truit w9s a restored and unbroken Union.
When we attack the policy and principles of this
obnoxious party, let no Union man, more ardent
than thoughttul, mistake our zeal against these
enemies of the American people for a vestige or
taint of tLe old "Rebel' leven. It is in this same
spirit of an earnest desire to smooth the way to a
reunion of a broken country, in heart as well as
in political interest and fact, that we approach
,he subject of the unseemly and unnecessary row
'that occurred in the theatre. It opens an oppor
tunity to say to the officers of the United States,
and especially to the younger gentlemen among
them, who are more likely to be carried away
from sound judgment by the ardor of their feel
ings, somethings that have been on our mind,
and which, perhaps, they have not thought of.
With few and rare exceptions, the hospitaole
doors of Southeru houses have not been opened
to these officers. With ample leisure on their
hands, which young men love to devote to soci
ety ; feeling that, as gentlemen residing in South
ern communities, belonging to an honorable p o
fession and the soldiers of a powerful Govern
ment, they are entitled to the hospitable civili
ties o the citizens, they are naturally not pleased
at an exclusion, which they incorrectly attribute
to a rebeiious insincerity in Southern professions
of allegiance to the Government. Now, gentle
men ollicers-we address ourselves only to the
gentlemen among them, for we have long since
found that reason is thrown away upon all who
are smitten with the Radical mani t -reflect a
little. You hold that, if our people keep aloof
from you sociallv, or show some signs of restive
ness when "Yankee Doodle" is played for their
entertainment at the theatre, they give tokens of
disloyalty to the government, and in your opin
ion, their rebellious spiit is not quenched, and
re.nires a little more chastisement and bayonet
argument. Now, as to the first, do you remem
ber that there is scarcely a domestic circle in
this land in which your presence would not pul
sate a painful reminder on bruised hearts not yet
sered by the healing hand of time, that the place
of a loved son, brother, husband, or lover, or a
revered father, the stay of the household, was
made vacant by the power of your arms? Do
you suppose because this people is conquered,
and has shown every manifestation of a sincere
and earnest purpose to return to and be faithful
to the renewed allegiance to which it has sworn,
that, therefore, the natural feelings of the human
heart have been eradicated ? Though beaten in
the great political conflict of thirty years brew
ing,~aind at 1 ast submitted to the arbitrament of
the sword, do you forget that we are yet men
and women ? We should be .rigels otherwise.
But if it were only the remembrance of kindred
bloodshed, the difficulty we mention would not
be insurmiounitable. There are others, weightier
still. Let us ask any caindid officer of the United
States army, "in what capacity are y ou here ? Is
it in that of a soldier of the United States, on
United States soil, as you would be in New York
or Philadelphia ? Were it so, the doors of South
ern hospitality would fly open to you. .But are
you not here to keep "watch and ward" over a
coq(uered people ? Are you not, in some sense,
our jailors, jealously watching our words and ac
tions, and keenly expectant of and ready to pun
ish every symptom of' a rebellious feelings w)l.ieh
has no existence ? If a drunken fellow, with his
brain not his own, cries "hurrah for Jeff' Davis !"
do you not make a great " to do " about it,
and clap him into a military prison ? Do you
not confiscate angl ine (g arms found on a wh.ite
citizen? Do you not scr-etinize and interfere
with our laws, and watch the proceedings of our
courts with nervous sensibility, lest we should
act like brutes to the poor and ever-to-be-pitied
freedmen ? If you say "yea," then, in what
sense are we your fellow citizens ? You order
"Yankee Doodle" to be played as a "National
air" (which it is not), and then are indignant be
cause we do not applaud. Where is the nation
ality that you require us to stand by, and love
arid adore ? WFe /,c none. Having~ done all
we could to secure it, shaped our laws according
to your wishes, and contrary to our own judg
ment and principles, to please you-wec have no
nationalityi. We are without a country. We
cannot thrill under the tones and the inspiring
poetry of the "Star Spangt-d Banner," because
your Congress has just dedided, by ignominously
excluding our representatives, that triat banner
is not for us, except to pin us slown with its bay
onets, and make slaves of us under its folds, con
secrat. d by our common ancestors to liberty.
That Congress has decided that we are not States,
nor citizens of the United States, bpt rebels and
territorial subjects. Shall we cry Halleluijah,
when our humble circumstances force lamenta
tions from our lips-? Give us the righ: to rejoice
in our freedomn; to thrill when the national airs
of our country vibrate in our.souls ; to feel that
we live under a government that is just to our
rights and respects our manhood, and you will
ud the old time returned, when the South was
tlways formvost in the field at the country's call,
is Washington apd his Yirginians were on the
heights of Boston. This is the way to encourage
and to assure a loyalty that is bursting for devel
:pment in the Southern heart, and is ever re
pressed by acts that remind us of our condition
-a people without a country. And now, having
triumphed over us, is it honorable in brave men,
specially of those who wear the uniform of the
profession of honor. to add to the humniliat.ion of
peo ple who at least are A mericans of your
blood ? Is this the way to sustain the policy,
the grand policy, of restored fraternity and po
itical reconstruction so wisely shaped .by the
President of the United States and the Coman
der-in-Chief of its armies ? Of the disturbance
in the theatre there is little to say except of re
ret that it sprang from the mistaken views we
have been considering. "Yankee Doodle" h.as
been played in: the theatre a- dozen tim~es before
without note or comment. On Wednesday, as
we are advised, a little knot of tipsy boys hisse d
when it struck up. This was replied to by ot h
ers with applause, and so the house was in an in
stant divided between those who hissed and those
who approved. We are free to admit that it
ought not to have been hissed; but surely it wasI
not politic, by playimg it, to run the risk of nia
king the theatre an arena of political emeute.
The result c-f this unpremeditated excitenent
on Wednesday night was an order to repeat
"Yankee Doodle" the following right, aiid the
presence of a strong guard and-numerous officers
with their side arms, and the m]omnent the air be
gan, the rising of the officers to their feet with
vociferous applause and clapping of hands. As
might have been expected, this produced some
hisses of disapprobation. Then came an orGer
to extinguish the lights and cleur the house. For
some cause the lights were only partially put out,
ad r htundred and fifty people rose and.!eft the
buildr-g. The curtain ros- at ' ie play went
on without further interruption. These are the
fcts as nearly as we could gather them. The
officers who took part in this portion of the play
"not. in the bills," must determine tor themselves
how far they have aided the President in his pol
icy of reconstruction, and to wvhat extent the sum
total of "loyalty" has been increased in the com
munity by the evening's performances.
A CURE Fou Couid.-l was traveliing in
Indiana, and had put up for the night at a
douAe log cabin on the banks of the Wa
bash, ate heartily of cucumbers at supper,
and an hour after was suffering all manner
of tortures for the colic-cramnps--whewf
"I'll go and fetch mother ; 'cause stranger,
I do reckon she's the awfulest best hand for
curing colic in the whole Wabash bottom."
She went into another part of the house,
and ten minutes after, one of the ugliest, sal
lowest, littlest old woman I ever saw in any
part of the civilized world, came hobbling in.
Hor gait was hardly a decent hobble; it was
more like that of a rheumatic ostrich. Her
nose and chin almost met over the shrunken
cavity doing duty as a mouth, and as she
shuffled towards me, she mumbled as if chew
ing her cud. On the end of her nose was a
great wart, with four or five gray bristles
straggling fiom it, and there were sundry
other beauty spots of the same nature about
her skinny neck and wrinkled chin. Her
eyes were red, bleared, and watery, from hav
ing spent her whole life 'about the smoky
fire place of a western cabin. This fearfully
and wonderful ugl1 old woman, stepping close
in front of me and stooping forward, 'till her
nose was so close to my face that the hair on
her nasal wart almost brushed my cheek,
"Stranger, Betsy Jane tells me she reckons
you've got the colicks powerful. Now, I've
been so myself nigh a hundred times, I reck
on in the cowcumber season; and Betsy Jane,
she's bin that way; Richard, he's bin that
way, and the biggest end or the rest of the
family." Producing a musket ball-an ounce
bullet of lead-she assured ine that I would
be.all right in five minutes after swallowing
it ; that lead was death on "colics." Being
terribly racked, and hardly knowing what I
did, I seized the bullet, and, with a simple
gulp, down it went. No sooner was it down,
than I repented of having swallowed it. I re
membered to have heard that lead was poison
ous. Starting up, I cried out:
"You old wretch, you have killed me ?
Lead is a deadly poison. I can feel it in my
stomach now. It will kill me!"
"Ha, ha, ha, he, he !" laughed the old crone;
"he, he, he !" in shrill, cracked voice-"kill
yer! don't pester yerself with the idea! Why,
stranger, that bullet'8 bin in the jam ily nig4
on to twenty years! Richard, he swallowed
it ; the biggest end of the children, they've
swallowed it; and I've swallowed it myself
night on to forty times."
"You " I cried, starting from my seat
You've swallowed this same bullet ?"
"Sartin I that same bullet every cowcumber
season for nigh twenty years."
"You old devil !" I cried, as I rushed from
A few minutes after, there might have been
seen a very sick-looking young man leaning
across a rail fence in the vicinity.
