Only an outcast-nobody cares for her,
Drive her oat, push her ont, don't let her stay,
There lot her seek for friends,
Thero let hor mako amenda,
For all her wickedness-turn her away!
Only an outcast-nobody takes her in,
Coldly they turn her away from eash door;
Badly she wandera on,
Hope dead and pity gone,
Bagged and hungry, heart-aick and sore!
Only an outcast-nobody seeks her.
Fierce blows the wind, and fast falls thc snow,
Down on her aching heart,
Till she's almost dead,
Sighing, sobbing, aud trembling so!
Only au outcast-no ono to calm her,
No ono to call'her friend, neighbor, or wife,
No gontle fathor, no tender mother,
No loving eiater, no noblo brother,
Friendless and homeless sho breathes out her lifo.
Only an outcast, tho men said who found her,
Hurry her off to tho alms-houao in haste;
No ono to scok her nanto,
Sho was a child of shame,
Bury her out on tho old pauper's waste.
Only an outcast, the grave-robber muttered,
As in tho dark night ho stole her away
From ber neglected tomb
To tho dissecting room,
For the physician's skill, and for his pay.
Only an ontoast, tho young student called lu r.
As ho removed the dark veil from ber face;
Well may he gasp for breath,
As be beholds in death,
The poor, friendless orphan he led to disgrace!
-O
GHOSTS, OLD AND NEW.
All tellers of pet ghost stories firmly be?
lieve in their authenticity. This is an ad?
mitted fact. And all who fancy they have
seen disembodied Bpirits of spectral appari?
tions, are equally satisfied that they were
not under any delusion, mental or physical.
The V?H?O? of a head, which haunted tho
late Earl Grey, was said by many to have
been a species of monomania, or optical
deception; but when the head presented
itself to tiie eyes of other members of his
family, that theory broke down.
The second Marquess of .Londonderry,
better known as the celebrated statesman,
Lord Castlereagh, told at one of his wife's
supper parties in Paris, in 1815, the follow?
ing supernatural tale, with tho most perfect
gravity. Sir Walter Scott was amongst tho
hearers, and often repeated it: Lord Cas?
tlereagh, when commanding in early life a
militia regiment in Ireland, was stationed
one night in a large desolate country house.
His bed was at ono end of a long, dilapidat?
ed room, while at the other extremity a
great fire of wood and turf had been pre?
pared withiu a huge, gaping, old-fashioned
chimney. Waking in the middle of tho
night, he lay watching from his pillow the
gradual darkening of tho embers on tho
hearth, when suddenly they blazed up, and
a naked child stepped from amongst them
on the floor. The figure advanced slowly
towards him, rising in statnre at every step,
until, on ooming within two or three paces
of his bed, it had assumed the appearance
of a ghastly giant, pale as death, with a
bleeding wound on the brow, and eyes glar?
ing with rage and despair. Lord Castle?
reagh leaped from his bed, and confronted
the figure in an attitude of defiance. It
retreated before him, diminishing as it with?
drew in the same manner that it had pre?
viously shot up and expanded. He followed
it paco by pace, until the original child-like
form disappeared in the embers.
When Lord Londonderry died by his own
hand, in 1822, Sir Walter Scott e- id: "This
explains a story he told mo of his having
seen a ghost, which I thought was a very
extraordinary narrativo from tho lips of n
man of so much calm senso and steadiness
of nerve. But, no doubt, ho had been sub?
ject to aberrations of mind, which often
create such phantoms." Wo cannot seo
how the suicide of Lord Londonderry ex?
plains thc ghostly appearance of so many
years before. Neither can we quito admit
the rio doubt of habitual mental wanderings,
of which no evidence is offered, and nono,
we believe, has ever been recorded. The
marquess boro through life the character of
one endowed with most unusual self-posses?
sion and even temperament. The suicide,
in all probability, proceeded from some im?
mediate excitement or incidental cause,
rather than from any constitutional ten?
dency. The most trhstworthy chroniclers
of the day mndo no allusion to the latter
possibility. They attributed the act to the
harassing labors of tho late session, as woll
as to mortifying reflections on his political
character, with which tho daily and weekly
organs of public opinion, opposed to the Go?
vernment, abounded. Tho coroner's inquest
brought in a verdict of insanity.
Tho supernatural appearance referrod to
abovo may have been a dream, ns it occur?
red at night, when the narrator was in bed;
although Lord L. declared ho was awake.
Wo have heard a person of credibility say
he once dreamt he was asleep and dreaming;
that ho awoko and dreamt again, taking up
the interrupted sequence of thought and
action, as if nothing had brokeu it, and still
under the conviction that he was asleep all
tho time. It is beyond the scope of theory
or reasoning to account for dreams.
This ghostly child recalls another story of
ii juvenile fetch, or wraith, or whptever tho
.proper term may be, lately told to tho pre?
sent writer by a friond, a senior of his own
standing, which presented itself to him a
long time ago in Wales, when ho was fishing
in tho river Usk. The teller of tho talo is
essentially a practical, rather than an imagi?
native or romantic individual, with nothing
dreamy or superstitious in his mental
or cerebral development. Strolling down
the bank on a fine summer's clay, rod in hand,
looking out for a favorablo spot in which
to try a cast, ho stopped at a placo which
appeared inviting. Tho Usk abounds in
rocky islets. Opposite him, and near the
centre of the stream, was ono of these,
rather elevated. On the other sido, be?
tween tho rock and the mainland, tho cur?
rent ran with much rapidity, and somewhat
tnrbidly, BS if disturbed and intercepted by
obstacles below the surface. The depth of
the water was much greater than that on
the side our fisherman had selected. Thia
he knew from former visits and observa?
tions. Suddenly he looked np, and saw a
little girl, of six or seven years old, in a
bonnet and cloak, with a basket on her arm,
standing quite alone, on the summit of the
island. She romained for some time, and
be continned to look steadily on tho unex?
pected object, wondering bow she got
there, ns, without a boat, access to tho
place where she stood was utterly impossi?
ble. Ho had his fishing-boots on, and tried
to wado across lo her, but the river was too
deep. Determined to satisfy himself, ho
moved further down until he reached a
fordable point, and crossed over to tho
other side. There, to bia increased sur?
prise, be saw tho child .standing, having loft
tho island. No vestage of a boat, or raft,
or any cou tri vaneo by which her passage
could have been effected, presented itself.
This, of course, added to his astonishment,
and bo walked towards her. When within
a short distance, sho moved across a field or
two, in the direction of a cottage on an
eminence, backed by a wood' ascended
soma steps on the side of tho bill, oponed
the door and disappeared withiu. There
could bo no mistake. He was certain of
tho fact and identity of the person, for he
noted her dress and appearance with minute
attention. Ho followed quickly, reached
the cottage, kuocked at the door and was
told to come iu. He did so, and saw a man
and woman, apparently bis wife, sitting by
tho kitchen fire. Tho attitudo of the man
was desponding; bis bead on his band,
while bis elbow rested ou his knee. Tho
visitor asked whore the little girl was who
had just preceded him into tho cottage.
The reply from the man was: "No little
girl has entered here; wo had but ono, and
I wo lost her some months ago-she is dead."
He then pointed to a cloak, bonnet and
basket on tho wall, and said: "Thoso were
hers, and there sho always left them." The
stranger instantly recognized them as those
bo bad seen. "Then," replied the man,
solemnly, "you have seen ber fatcb! She
was our only child, most dear to us, and
allowed by all to be the best girl in the
school she attended."
After a littlo more conversation, bc
pressed a gratuity on them, which thej
were unwilling to take, and not liking bis
own reflections, left tho cottage. Ho then
went to the school in the immediatb neigh
borbood, to obtain further particulars.
Everything ho bad been told was corrobo
rated by the school-mistress, who nlso tool
him to the child's grave in the villagf
church-yard. Hore the incident ended,
Nothing moro ensued, nor bad the per?oi
to whom the vision appeared the slightest
connection with or interest in the partie!
concerned. Ho cannot persuade bimsel
that it was a bona fide ghost, and to tbii
hour remains undecided as to what it reallj
was. Of this ho is certaiu, that be was nol
asleep, and that what be saw and did wen
not tho vapors of a dream.
Sleep overpowers people in strange posi
tious, and it is quite possible to bo so over
taken when iishiug on tho banks of a river
but to retain a salmon rod in band, and no
drop or lose it, under such conditions, ex
ceeds the category of possibilities. Be
sides, where was tho money that bad beei
given on this particular occasion, aud cer?
tainly no longer in tho bestower's pocket
We ourselves have a distinct recoiled iou o
walking a considerable distance, during ;
night march, in a state of perfect somuo
lency from fatiguo; but tho hands wor
empty, and uothing dropped or lost. Ol
another occasion, going up Mount Etna lr
uigbt, so as to reach the summit for sun-rise
one of tho party dropped from bis mul
asleep; whereupon tho dumb quadrupel
halted till be should get up again. Bein;
missed, two of bis companions, with th
guido, came back to look for the absentee
and fouud him locked in deep reposo o
tho pathway, and the mule standing by bina
in the same state of happy obliviousness.
A strange incident, which bas beeu i
print beforo, occurred in tho life of Gei;
Sir John Sherbrooke, who died in the yen
1830. Ho was another mau with as littl
romance in bis composition as could poss
bly bo imagined. A good executive oflicei
but hot aud peppery as cayenne popper; bi
temper not beiDg improved by a derange
liver, tho result of long service under th
scorching sun of ludia.
lb tho year 1785, bo and Gen. Wy ny art
then very young men, wero officers in th
same regiment, stationed in Cauada. O
tho 15th of October, in that year, about
o'clock P. M., beforo dusk came ou, thc
were seated in Wynyard's quarters, engage
in study. It was a room iu a block-hous<
with two doors, tho ono opening on a
outer passage, tho other into tho latt<
officer's bed-room, from which there was n
exit except by returning through the parlo
Sherbrooke, happening to look up froi
bis book, saw beside tho door which opene
on the passage, tho figuro of a tall ?tout]
apparently about twenty years of age, bi
palo aud much emaciated. Astonished i
the presence of a stranger, Sherbrool
called the attention of his brother office
sitting near him, to the visitor. "I hai
heard," he said, in afterwards relating tl
incident, "of a man's being as palo as deatl
but I never saw a living face assume tl
appearance of a corpse except Wynyard'
at that moment." Both remained silent!
gazing on tho figure as it moved slow
through tho room, and entered the bei
chamber, casting on young Wynyard, as
passed, a look, JUS bis friend thought,
melancholy affection. The oppression'
its presence was no sooner removed tin
Wynyard, grasping Sherbrooke's arm. ?
claimed, in scarcely maculate tonos: "Got
God! my brother!"
Both anxiously waited tho arrival of tl
mail from England. Some of tho offieei
meanwhile, induced Wynyard to conies
with much reluctance, what ho bad Bee
Great excitement was produced tbrougbo
! the regiment in consequence. When the
j expected vessel arrived, there were no let?
ters for Wynyard, bot one for Sherbrooke.
? As soon as he had opened and read it, he
beckoned Wynyard from tho room. They
remained closeted for an hour. On Sher
I brooke's return, tho mystery was solved. It
was a letter from another officer, begging
Sherbrooke to break to Wynyard tho news
of the death of his favorite brother, who
had expired on the 15th of Ootober, and at
tho same hour at which tho friends saw the
apparition in the block-honso. Some years
afterwards, Sherbrooke, then in England,
was walking in Piccadilly, London, when
on the opposite sido of tho street, ho saw a
geutleinuu whom he instantly recognized as
tho counterpart of tho mystorions visitor.
Crossing over, ho apologised for his intru?
sion, und learned that he also wa? a brother
I -not a twin, as some accounts havo it-of
Wynyard. Moro than once, and long after,
when some allusion to tho incident was
! mado in Gen. Sherbrooke's presence, ho
interposed, with strong emotion, saying: "I
beg that the subject may not again bo men?
tioned." The impression on the minds of
those who heard him was, that he consider?
ed the matter too serious to bc talked of.
Gen. Paul Anderson, a distinguished Pe?
ninsular officer, who, when a major on Sir
John Moore's staff, assisted at the burial of
that gallant soldier on tho ramparts of Co?
runna, coroborated tho facts hero repeated,
as having hesrd them direct from Sir John
Sherbrooke's i?Wfl Hps, a short time before
his death; adding, that Sir John assured
him also, in the most- Bolemn manner, that
he believed the appearance to have been a
ghost or a disombodied spirit, and that this
belief was shared by his friend Wynyard.
Strong evidence, more than forty years sub?
sequent to the ovent.
We find it stated in Moore's life of Byron,
that tho noblo bard sometimes used to men?
tion a strange story, which the commander
of the packet, Captain Kidd, related to him
when on his passago to Lisbon, in 1809.
Being nslecp ono night in his berth-Cap?
tain Kidd, loquitur-ho was awakened by
tho pressure of something heavy on his
limbs, and there being a faint light iu tho
room, could see, as ho thought, distinctly,
tho figuro of his brother, who was at that
timo in tho naval service in the East Indies,
dressed in his uniform, aud stretched across
tho bcd. Concluding it to bo an illusion of
the souses, ho shut his eyes aud mado an
' effort to sleep; but still the same pressure
continued, and still, as often as he ventured
to take another look, ho saw and felt tho
figure lying across him in tho same position.
To add to tho wouder, ou putting his hand
forth to touch this form, he found the uni?
form iu which it appeared to bo dressed,
dripping wet. On tho entrance of one ol
his brother officers, to whom ho called out
in alarm, the apparition vanished; butin fl
few months after, he received the startling
intelligence that on that identical night his
brother had fallen overboard and beer
J drowned in tho Indian seas. Of the super
j natural character of this appearance, Cap
j taiu Kidd himself did not appear to have
j tho slightest doubt. "Oh!" exclaims thc
j incredulous reader, "this was a d?cid?e
dream!" Granting the probability of snot
a solution, it was nevertheless an intima
lion, out of the natural course, of an eveni
which had actually occurred al an euormoui
I distance, and touching most closely th?
party to whom it was conveyed.
The following recital carno to me from i
near relative. Ho received it in mauuscrip
from the writer, who vouches for its authon
ticity, and declares that he repeats, withou
exaggeration, the facts therein detailed:
ALTA VISTA, January 8, 1848.
Tho events I am about to relate, occurrei
at a distance of about 800 miles apart. Ou
at Alta Vista, the residence of Major Rich
ard Pollard, in tho Green Mountains of Al
bemarle County, Virginia; the other at ;
frontier post on tho Western boundary o
Texas-not, as now, incorporated in th
Union. A detachment of about 200 mon
of tho Ninth Regiment of Infantry, and
few dragoons, wero thero in garrison, witl
tho usual complement of officers. Amongs
tho latter, was Lieutenant Henry Pollard
a remarkably fine and intelligent youn
man, of about twenty-five years of agc
Towards tho close of tho day of tho 11th c
May, 1834, tho clear, ringing notes of
buglo announced tho hour of dinner, an
immediately after, tho officers weregathere
round tho mess-tuble, buoyant with healtb
and in their accustomed harmony and goo
fellowship-conditions under which the
thero met for the last time.
Alta Vista occupies tho summit of a
elevation which commands a charmin
view across tho Green Mountains; Wes
wardly to the Blue Ridge; and to th
Southward and Eastward on a clear daj
can bo seen Mount Laurel, within tho boi
dors of tho contiguous Stato of Kentucky
Ao?t half a mile from tho house, on th
North side, runs too public read, while si;;
rounding it is an extensive park, scattere
over with a profusion of spruce and Ioctl!
trees. Arbors composed of cane, spring u
here and there, and as they are the resort <
members of tho family for reading, stmlj
ing or playing, tho honso servants ha?
taken them under their especial charg<
They devoto to them unremitting caro an
attention; thoy havo trained over and aboi
thom flower-bearing vines and oreeper
which diffuse an agreeable fragrance, rei
dering them at tho same time impervious f
ruin, and to tho sun's rays. At tho Sout
side, beyond the lawn, is the garden, n
ways noatly kept; and well filled with tli
choicest shrubs and flowers, amongst whic
shines conspicuously tho yellow rose. A
tho immediate grounds about tho honso ai
enclosed with nil ornamental paling <
wood; gravel walks giving access to gates i
various points; and un ample piazza runs tl
length of tho main building, which lu
wings at either extremity.
From tho porch in the centre of th
piazza, a broad gravel walk leads struigl
throngh the lawn to the principal gates <
I entronco to the park. It is bounded, as all
the others are, by a low hedge of aromatic
! shrubs and flowers. About half a mile off,
in a southernly direction, are rows of negro
' cabins, and within a convenient distance of
them stands a two-story brick bouse, occu?
pied by tho overseer of the plantation and
bis family.
At the time now referred to, Major Pol?
lard was absent at Santiago in Chili, where
bo bad boon sent by tho United States Go?
vernment, on a special mission, which in?
volved reparation for the capture of the
frigate Essex, Commodore Porter, within
the harbor of Valparaiso, in the war of
1811-14, by two English vessels, tho Phoebe
und Cherub.
During the absonco of ber husband, Mrs.
Pollard, leaving tho entire management of
tho plantation to the overseers, occupied
herself with the education of her children,
who wero under the tuition of the Kev. Mr.
Brown, a gentleman from Massachusetts.
He was a profound scholar, aud being with?
out a church, had accepted tho office of
tutor in tho family, remaining in it, includ?
ing a residence at Oak Ridge, between eight
and nine years. As now, Mrs. Pollard bad
a great fondness for flowers, and passed
much of her time amongst them. A lady
of wonderfully pleasing and graceful man?
ners, of a highly cultivated mind, and par?
ticularly free from anything of a superstitious
nature. I mention tbis for evident reasons,
which will appear in connection with this
story. Sho was in the habit of rising early,
and attended by some of the female ser?
vants of the bouse, would frequently pass
an hour or more, before breakfast, in the
garden and the grounds adjacent. At this
time she was in tho prime of life, and re?
tained much of that personal beauty for
which in her j)rcmiere jeunesse she had been
remarkable.
The early morning of tho 13th of May,
1834, was ono of those for which the spring
season, in that p?rt of Virginia, is perhaps
nowhere excelled. Notii?C? eau Burpass the
delicious softness of a May day-break in the
Green Mountains. Yon ROO an almost cloud* <
. loss sky, and aro conscious of a temperature j
voluptuously soft and tranquilizing. Tho
fragrance of a thousand flowers fills tho air.
At intervals, you may bear, as if to present
a more striking interest, tho notes of a
"songster of tho grove;" or the fanning of
a gentle breeze may stir the leaves and
branches of encircling wood. I prefer to
give, as received from Mrs. Pollard's own
lips, and as nearly as possible in her own
! words, what now follows, delivered with on
uncontrollable emotion which frequently
interrupted tho thread of tho narration.
"I left the house," she said, "on the
morning above indicated, quite early, bo
fore G, U6 I noticed by tho clock when
passing through the ball. I crossed the
lawn to the garden, and not seeing Uncle
Ben, (ono of the negro grudeuers,) I ex?
pressed surprise, as ho wus usually very
regular at bis work; and my astonishment
was not lessened at bearing Martha ex?
claim, "Missis, there's Uncle Ben over yon?
der in the grave-yard." (The family ceme?
tery lay immediately beyond tho garden.)
I directed my stops towards it, to seo what
bo was doing, ns it seemed strange be
should bo there instead of in the garden. I
said, "Unelo l?en, what brings you here
this morning?" He reminded me that a
few weeks before I bad told him to pluck
away somo weeds which wer? growing up
about the tomb of my dear littlo Lucy. I
noticed, too, tbat ho had swept and
smoothed tho surrounding grounds. The
morning was so delightful, the air so sereno,
that I felt tempted to pass ont through the
cemetery to thc fields, intending to return
by tho sume way, and I told Uncle Ben not
to lock the gate, ns I should do so.
"I was led to continue my walk beyond
what was my usual custom, but presently a
peculiar sensation, as if impelled by some
undefined influence, came upon me, and I
began to feel very nervous. I hastened to
tho path leading to the largo gate, through
which I uow decided to return to tho bouse
-tho shortest way, in fact. An overpower?
ing sonso of sadness oppressed me, and
onco or twice I was compelled to stop. At
length I approached tho aspen tree which
stands by the side of the private road, just
without tho gate, when, judge of my hor?
ror at seeing, lying beuentb it, my poor boy
Henry. At bis side wero a cloak, a cap and
a sash. I saw blood oozing from his neck.
His features boro an expression indicative
of intense pain, though calm and tranquil.
I instinctively moved towards him, whon
ho waved bis band, as if to say, adieu 1 A
faint smile scorned to struggle through the
agony under which bo was laboring.
