THE COUNTESS MELUSINE*
BY MUS. II. WOOD.
Tho world was dull and lifo Avas
very dreary to young Anthony Car?
thew; and all sorts of strange un?
answered questions gathered heavily
upon his heart, like sad dreams
which oppress the mournful. For
what was he living?-to what aim,
end, purpose, or intention ? For
pleasure?-pleasure in the dullest o?
society, and the most uninteresting
of countries? For ambition?-what
ambition was there for a daily tutor
in Stoneleigh. For a pleasant home
life of love and sweet affection?-but
his possessions in tiiai way were not
rich enough for the needs of tin;
poorest heart. With a half-sister,
much older than himself, who
usurped tho domination without,
granting the tenderness of a mother,
and who thought that the fit guidance
of youth meant the suppression of
its instincts, and the annihilation of
all its joys-with only such a com?
panion as this, there could not be
much love shut up for him within
those four walls called by courtesy
his home. 80 that, turn which way
he would, his whole lifo seemed bar?
ren and his very existence a mistake.
Anthony was not unreasonable in
his discontent; for in truth never was
there a more comfortless life than
that which Rachel Carthew provided
for her young brother in that miser?
able house of theirs. Anthony's
home was all gloom and narrowness,
both moral and actual; and it was in
such a melancholy dungeon as this,
that Rachel thought to forge the
links and grappling-irons which were
to save her youthful brother from
external evil, and anchor him to the
safety lying in the calm of home af?
fections. Can you wonder, theil,
that Anthony was weary ol' a life
which gave him only such a stagnant
pool as this for the bay which held
his choicest pearls?
Fifty at the youugest, stiff-backed,
lean, bony, and inexpressibly sour
tempered, Rachael Carthew was a
liviug protest against every grace
of womanhood, every suave delight
of life. No one had been evoi
known to love her-not even when
she wai young, and what peoi
pie, who measure beauty by length
of inches and weight of bone, call r
"line woman;" and now, of course,
such a feeling was out of thequestior
-she was as far removed from love ir.
auy of its forms as if she had beer
one of the Gorgon sisterhood nu
earthed. But the hardest have a sof
place somewhere; and even Rache
had her preferences. So she opene<
her heart to a certain little Nelb
Blair, the daughter of the Stoneleigh
Nelly Blair was a pretty little crea
ture, of the apple-cheek order, witl
large light-blue eyes, well-shaped
but inexpressive; a fair, round, fa
face; a short, blunt, positive nose
red lips, neither full nor wide; a figur
made up of a succession of circles
and 'with a temper as even as a bow
of fresh milk. Such as she was, sh
was Rachel Carthew's chosen friend
and Rachel had her designs on th
friend's future fortunes. Now, An
thony weh knew what those design
wen . and g i ve way to them, accord
ing io the habitual indolence of hi
character, according to the deferent'
he always paid his sister, and accord
ing to the pliancy of the discontente
and unhappy. The suit went by Rf
chet's rilling; and, in due time, Ai:
thony, cheated, by the crying need 1
sympathy, 'into the belief that h
loved Nelly Blair, (who, by the waj
was the only girl of his own age an
condition with whom he was a<
quain ted,) made his proposal in pr<
per form, and in proper form wa
accepted.. For though he was onl
the village teacher of humanities, h
was not poor, and though Nelly w?
the attorney's daughter, she had n
portion. So that they were equal i
rank and condition, and neither cou]
despise the belongings of the othe
Anthony was angry with himse
that he was not more contented; f(
was he not truly, really, devotedly i
love? Rachel said he was, and R
ebel knew everything; and Nelly wi
satisfied-and would she be that
he failed even in thc smallest partie
lar? It was said young girls wei
exacting, and she was doubtless lil
"More weary and melancholy th:
ever, one day, Anthony plunged in
the only square yard of copse to 1
seen for miles round Stoneleigh,
was the wood of the neighborhoo
and might have been an acre cut o
of the Black Forest, for the magni
cent ideas of gloom and grandeur ?
sociated with it by the Stoneleij
people; ami, naturally, it was a i
vorite place with Anthony, with i
romantic tendencies and insatial
love of nature. Lost in his o\
vague dreaming.';, his head buried
his Jiands, over which his pictnresq
black hair hung, thick and wavy, A
thony's senses were closed against t
outside world, when, suddenly,
voice, most rarely sweet and music
asking, with the daintiest dash
foreign accent, "What was the na]
of this wood, and in which directi
was Stoneleigh?" woke him to t
knowledge that a lady was stand]
before him. Confused and starth
he sprang to his feet, and his e;
met two largo hazel orbs, fixed w
a strange, perplexing expression
"This isJBeech Copse, madam;r
Stoneleigh Hes to the North," stam?
"Thank you; you oro kind," said
the lady, still keeping her perplex
ingly beautiful eyes fixed steadily
upon him. "And VOIT, monsieur
forgive me the liberty; but do you,
too, Uve itt Stoneleigh?"
"Yes," said Anthony, blushing.
"1 am piad of that," she answered,
with a low sweet laugh; "for I am
your neighbor now, and shill ii ?pi?
to see von somotirios at O.ikfel!
"Oakfell Hall!" echoed Anthony,
in a tone of surprise. "In its ruined
state, how can you bo there, madam?
It. is years since it was first inhabited,
and is little better than a ruin."
"I am usually very rapid in ray
movements," said the lady, witli a
singular sm ?io. "I took the. place
only a few days apo, certainly ; but i?
yon will do mo the pleasure' of pay?
ing- mo a visit, you will, I think, agree
that I have not lost my time. Will
Anthony stammered something, lie
scarce knew what; but it was suf??
ciently unintelligible to pass for an
assent; and the lady accepted it as
"Adieu, then, monsieur," she said,
"Remember, J. count on seeing you
at thc Hull, and soon-the sooner
tb" move charming."
She waved her hand, then passed
with a pretty, light and balancing
ste]) round the clump of gorse that
grew between them. Anthony saw
her light blue summer robe flutter
through the goldeu lacings of the
blossoms, and it seemed as ii he aven
itself had iluttev.'tl 'away in ils folds.
With a magnificent burst of stoic?
ism, he left thc copse and came out
upon thc open common; and there,
walking" in the direction of Stone?
leigh, lie saw the Hatter of a light
blue robe and a graceful head turned
back towards the road; one small, fair
hand holding the chesnut curls from
off tho face. Was thc air so marvel?
lously clear to-day, flint every line
and hue and movement of that figure
should be preternaturally distinct, or
was it, in very truth, a chapter of
glamour, and was Anthony under th"
spell of an unblessed fay? A couple
of centuries apo, lie would have
thought himself possessed, and have
straightway pone to a priest to bo ex?
orcised. Now, witli the light of
science slantinp in his eyes, he spoke
reasonably to himself of nerves and
liver, of the virtue that lay in calomel
and black-draught, and of the foolish
excitability of those who dwell much
alone in country places. Hut he was
