THE FACE AT THE WINDOW.
A few summers back I was making a
pedestrian tour of South Wales, when, in
one of my solitary rambles, I fell in with
a very interesting companion. The eimi
liarlty of taRtes which we diocovered in our
first interview, led to a further intimacy,
and we soon became fast friends no inti
mate, indeed, thru Mr. Arthur Mostyn
(such was my companion's name) invited
me to spend the remainder of th6ummer
at a little cottage he owned near Brecon.
I was noi ovei -burdened with worldly
cares. I had neither wife, child, nor bu
siness to cause me anxiety; so I cheerfully
nccepted the invitation bo heartily given,
and in a day or iwo was regularly domi
ciled with my new fiiend. He was a young
man about tliirt), well-educated and ac
complished; a u is t-rate artist for many
of his sketches and drawings would have
done no discredit lo a professional hand.
There were, however, many peculiarities
in hi. mai nor which had not appeared in
our first interview, and these 1 could not
help noticing a4 1 was more in his com
pany. He spoke Frenc h with a purity of
accent that 1 hud never remarked in any
oilier Englishman. I accounted for this
by supposing that ho had resided for some
time on the continent; but on my remaik
ing his perfection in the language, he be
came silent and reserved for the remain
der of the day. It was evident that 1 had
touched upon a jtri ing chord, and as my
only object, in keeping his company was
lho"enj"jment of hid in tellecluiil taste, aud
the gratification of my love of the pictu
resque, I did not seek to know more of
him than he chose to tell me. I had no
ticed that evrry:hing relating to France,
if but slightly touched upon, produced in
him a fit of melancholy; 60 I carefully
avoided any reference to that subject. But
a circumstance occurred in one of our ex
cursions that avouscd ray curiosity in a
great degree. We frequently took verj
long walks in the mountainous district in
the neighborhood of Brecon, and one fine
evening, as the sun was setting, we found
ourselves at the little village of Llanham
lach, some two or three miles from that
town. This village is one of the best
specimens of South Wales scenery. Ly
ing in the midst of a lovely valley watered
by the Usk, we thought, as we now gazed
upon it illuminated by the Betting sun, that
it would be difficult indeed to find a more
beautiful picture. We sat upon a gate by
the roadside, and were soon lost in deli
cious reveries, broken only by some mur
mured exclamation as a change in the as
pect of the gorgeously tinted clouds
awoke in us such admiration that we could
no longer keep silent. Then, breaking into
raptures, we vied with each other who
could discover the greatest beauties. One
pointed to the darkened outline of the little
church fcpire, that stood directly in the
crimson glow of the sun-light. The other
remarked the purpling tint of the distant
mountains, that formed the background of
the picture, looking more like Titanic
shadows than immense masses of earth
aud stone. One, then, caught the brilliant
glow upon the quiet river, thai was mean
dering through the valley, blushing like
a fair virgin with her lover's last kiss at
parting on her brow. Having exhausted
all our powers of description upon the see-'
nery, we determined, as we began to feel
fatigued, to rest for a time at the little inn
that stood by the road -side.
We were shown into a snug little apart
ment and left to ourselves. As the even
ing was, rather chilly, our host accom
modated us with a fire, and, refreshing
ourselves with a jug of his home-brewed,
we dialled till it grew quite. dark.
My companion was evidently quite tired
for I found, on launching out into some
flowery description of foreign scenes, and
comparing them with Wales,- 1 received
no answerer comment from him. I looked
up, tnd found he was fast asleep; so rny
ouly resource was to stir the fire, and as
books were out of the question in a neigh
borhood like this, to draw my chair nearer
to it, and give myself up to reflection till
my companion should be rested sufficiently
to walk home. Sitting by the firelight, I
am very apt to lose myself ia imaginative
dreams. In these abstracted moods, the
ordinary objH.U of tbe room often mingle
einncrelY with my reri. and assist, the
Illusion of fancy. It was particularly the
case of tfiiai moment. All was so quiet
arid subdued that the mind was insensibly
carried away to the past. Old faces seemed
to flash upon me in thei flickering fire
light; old hopes and aspi rations came fresh
to. my memory from the long years - that
were gone; sweet tones that touched my
heart in those days seemed now to echo
faintly in my ears; bright looks and sunny
smiles that had long been quenched in the
grave came vividly to the mind's eye.
It was growing late, but still Arthur
slept. The moon rone above the Brecon
Beacons, and shone full upon the exquisite
landscape, and into-the apartment where
we sat. 1 1 went to the window and looked
out pa. the beautiful aoenet r. Then I -went
back acain to rov chair by the fireside. I
had not been sittine lohtr, when' it struckl
me that a faint and unusual shadow seemed
to be cast across the room from the direc
tion of the window. I was almost asleep,
as well as my companion, and did not at
first turn round to uotice it; but in a min
ute or two I recalled my faculties from the
abysses of my reveries, and glanced di
rectly toward the' window. . The object,
whatever it was that had obstructed the
moonlight, vanished instantly; but it ap
peared to me, in the indistinct light and
the momentary glance I caught, to be the
face of a female. So sudden was the dis
appearance from the window, and so shad
owy were my recollections of the features,
that I fancied for some timo it could not
have been a reality that I had been
dreaming, or had conjured up the sweet
phantom from some faint memories of the
past. "Yes, yes," I muttered to myself,
"it could only have been my fancy."
Supposing it to have been a woman, what
motive, what object could she have in
stauding motionless at a window, gazing
at two travelers? But again. I fancied it
might be some gipsy or vagrant who had
been watching our'motions, and who had
only left us to give warning to her com
panions, who would probably rob us on
our Way home. Thus, giving way to a
host of conjectures, it only now occurred
to me (o go round to the back of the houae,
and see if any one was concealed there
With this view, and without awaking my
companion, I sought the waiter of the inn,
and told him my suspicions. But he did
not at all enter into my view of the case,
assuring me that be had not seen n gipsy
in the neighborhood for years, and was un
willing to assist mo in the search I had
suggested; but, as I was positive, he ac
companied me to the rear of the premises,
and we searched carefully in every direc
tion i tables, outhouses, in fact no spot
that could have afforded a hiding place for
a human being was left. But neither
gipsy-woman, uor any other, could wo
Coming back to the room I had left, 1
found my friend had just awoke.
"I liave had a e ry strange dream," said
he, in a sad tone of voice; "1 have dreamed
of a face that I shall probably never see
again, lor the owner ot it is many nunuieu
miles irom fcngUnd at this moment.
"And yet," continued he, in an altered
voice from what I had ever heard him
speak before, "I could almost wish to see
it again, if only for a moment."
As he uttered these words, I almost
started from ray chair. "It is a female
f;tce you refer to," said I.
"How do you know that?" he asked.
I thought I should now draw from him
the secret that weighed upon his mind, and
therefore told him, as briefly as possible,
the strange apparition (if such it was) 1
had seen at the window.
This narration seemed greatly to affect
him, but, contrary to my expectations, in
stead of unburdening himself to me, he
was evidently not sufficiently acquainted
with my character to give me his entire
confidence. So, contenting himself with
making a few hasty remarks as to the ex
traordinary fact that we should both have
the same fancies, he dismissed the subject,
and proposed that we should walk on
Day after day passed away, and my
companion was slid dull and cheerless.
We wandered daily amongst the most
beautiful scenery, but how cold the beau
ties of nature meet the eye, if the heart is
ill at easel Once, as we loitered through
a delicious valley ut the close of the day,
the sound of a horn came softly to us from
a distance. "Ah," said my companion,
stopping and listening intently, "I have
heard that melody a hundred times before,
but never has it possessed such a magical
influence as now." Tears rolled down his
cheeks. Musio is indeed a wondrous en
chantment the 6ame melody lighting up
the soul of one with joy and gladness, while
to another it brings only tbe most melan
"Why do you not confide to me your
secret sorrow?" 1 said to Arthur; "it
would at least ease your mind, and be as
sured I ask it from no idle curiosity."
"I am uncertain how far you can sym
pathize with me," said hfe, "and my sor
row is not of a nature to be told, unless I
could gain in return for my confidence
counsel and suggestions for the future."
1 could not promise him counsel, not
knowing how far his trouble might be
within my experience; but I pressed him
earnestly for his confidence, as I could
plainly see how wretched he had lately be
come. "This evening, then, you shall know my
history," said he; and lor a short time we
When the evening came we seated our
selves by the fireside. Arthur began his
etory with an air of constraint and diffi
dence. "In the fiiet place," said he, "I
fear you will blame me greatly- for while
I have continually reproached myself with
past folly, I have wanted the moral cour
age and resolution to own myself in the
wrong, and, as it were, humiliate myself

Bionally at the county balls, and, as I bad
some faculty in scribbling, writing a maga
zine article from time to time. The suc
cess of one or two of my little pieces had
almost turned my head, and I began to
indulge in fantastic visions of fame and
fortune, to be won only with the pen. I
wrote incessantly, and went backward and
forward to a little town, about three miles
distant from the village in which we lived,
to see the periodicals as they were pub
lished, and to glance eagerly over their
pages for my own lucubrations. One
evening, however, as I was returning
from one of these expeditions, an incident
occurred which, from that time to this,
changed the whole current of my exist
"My nearest way home from the town
led in one place almost directly under the
windows of antique mansion, that had for
many years been ruinousand uninhabited;
but it had lately been taken by a French
family, and repaired aud beautified. I had
always taken a fancy to this old place, it
was so very quaint and picturesque, and
commanded one of the lovliest laudscapes
that could be found in that part of Eng
land. Often, as I passed by the old
house, I had speculated on the character
and tastes of its inmates.
"The particular night I speak of the
moon shone brightly as I was just emerg
ing from a little wood near the bouse,
when I was startled by an unexpected vis
ion. From beneath the drawing-room
windows a balcony projected; standing on
this balcony I now observed a beautiful
female figure. Had the form been the
glowing creation of a Greek sculpter it
could not have been more perfect, or have
stood in a more exquisite attitude. I ap
proached a little nearer to the spot, so as
to obtain a view of her features, yet so
sofily as not to disturb her meditations.
was indeed surprised at the marvellous
beauty of her countenance., ' A fine oval
face with deep lustrous eyes, a command
ing yet perfectly womanly brow, was sha
ded by a profusion of dark hair, forming a
strong contrast to her brilliant complexion,
which told as plainly as verbal description
of the sunny south of France. , The dreamy
gaze of those large liquid eyes, and the
ideal expression of her countenance, told
how forcibly she was struck with the
beauty of the moonlight view. What
wonder was it that I worshiped the un
known divinity from that moment could
help it, when upon the dimness of a
country life a face and a form now rose be
fore me such as we rarely see save in
dreams! Thinking only of her transcen
dant beauty, I was utterly lost to every
thing else, and gradually wandered nearer
and nearer to the balcony, until at length
became aware that I was distinctly seen,
and the young beauty, suddenly aroused
from her reverie, retired into the house.
What could her dream have been? asked
myself a thousand times. Had she been
thinking of some absent lover, far away
among the vineyards and hills of her na
tive France? Or had his spirit taken flight,
and was her gaze directed toward the il
limitable expanse, as though to pierce the
star-lit canopy, and descry him among the
white robed worshipers? Or was it only
the glad communion of youth and beauty
with the spells of nature? These and
many other theories occupied and banished
sleep from my eyes that night. For sev
eral successive days I passed and repassed
the mansion, but without seeing my ina
tnroala. But did not give up, though.
Love is fertile in expedients.
"Among my other accomplishments,
was a treat love for, and skill in drawing.
This faculty now determined to bring
into full play. knew how common it
was among the cultivated French people
to find a taste for sketching and drawing,
and little doubled but that tbe beauty of
the balcony had also sufficient love of art
to appreciate my efforts. So procured
materials in abundance, and in spite of my
uncle's misgivings, who began to fear in
the variety of my tastes and pursuits that
should never do much credit to his
teaching or example, frequently paid a
visit to any spot commanding a view of the
old mansion, and sketched, as well as my
impatience would allow me, some of
the prominent features of the beauti
ful scenery around. bad tried this
ruse for several days without effect, when
one day a handsome man, a little past the
prime of life, but still light and active in
his manner, came down to the spot where
was sitting, and after looking attentively
at my sketches for some moments, and
throwing me into an agony of wonder as
to the possibility of his being the father
of my unknown divinity, accosted me in
broken English: '
You will 6ell de picture, are?'
" 'Non, monsieur,' said I, conjuring up
the few French words knew, and in
wardly lamenting my ignorance of the lan
guage, 'I am only au amateur.'

French and half in English, to utter a thou

.' But what have you ' done with your
drawing? aid my uncle. y
, "I bad. not thought of this, and blushed
deeply. After a . few wise .remarks upon
the danger of young , men - falling into
strange company my uncle quietly allowed
the matter to drop, and in the . evening I
went, full of joy and expectation, to the
French family. : I was received , by the
gentleman I had sees in the morning and
his wife, irv. whose features I found little
difficulty ia traoing.those of the fair Aglae,
makjng due allowance for the ravages of
time. ': The lovely girl herself entered the
apartment shortly afterwards, if possible
more beautiful than ever. Hardly know
ing what said, advanced to meet her.
Her father introduced me with some com
pliments to ray artistic taste, pointing to
my little sketch, which was already hang
ing on the wall among a number of
graceful drawings by Aglae heiself.
Aglae possessed, in common with the ma
jority of her country-women, the faculty
of making stranger feel perfectly mtease
in her company, and 'after a few hours
flown like minutes in her society, left
the house, with surprise that I could pos
sibly have grown so intimate in so short a
"From thwt day forth my visits became
frequent. Aglae and understood each
other so well, and our intimacy advanced
so rapidly, that in a short time we were
recognized lovers. My uncle made no
objection, and became very tolerant of my
French friend's Catholic principles. He
saw that was not destined to make a
figure in the pulpit, and was only glad to
aee me with some tangible object in view.
So, contrary to the usual experience of
such matters, the course of true love ran
as smoothly as could be desired; and, in a
few months from our first meeting, the
captivating Aglae was my wife.
"Agreeable to the wishes of her parents,
we took up our abode with them, in the
old house, and for some time were as
happy as two frail mortals could possibly
be on earth. When remember that
happy lime the glowing looks that spoke
volumes in answer to my endearments
the sweet silvery prattle, in delightful bro
ken English, about her native-vinyards
and mountains the pretty French legions
which she told me, by the dusky twilight
of the winter's fireside or the plaintive
romance, accompanied by her father's
guitar I wonder more aud more at the
dark fatality which destroyed such an
earthly paradise. But, alas! it was des
troyed, and regret is unavailing.
"Among the visitors to the house was
a young Count Chandier, who, for some
political offense, had been banished his
country. He was a young man of most
captivating manners and address, and was
evidently very much taken with my young
wife. After our marriage, encouraged by
the praise of my wife and her friends, I
had again taken up the pen and peucil,
and frequently apent some hours in the
pursuit of these studies. On these occa
sions, Count Chandier and my wife would
ramble out in the grounds surrounding
the house.. Knowing tbe gaiety and free
dom of French manners, felt no uneasi
ness on that score, till, one day, an old
friend calling upon me took occasion to re
mark, in a playful manner, that had bet
ter not leave Aglae too much alone with
the young Frenchman. 1 have long since
known that this was said out of pure gen
erosity to my charming wife, because he
feared that she might feel neglected if I
gave myself up too much to books and
pictures. However, the effect on my
mind at that time was sudden, and fatal

"God grant it!" said , fervently, much
moved by Arthur's earnestness. was
about to make some further iemark. when
was startled by the extreme agitation of
his manner. With his face pale as death,
and his eyes glaring wildly, he pointed
toward the window.
"See!" he cried, almo3t gasping for
breath, "-he comes Aglae, my wife
but she comes from another world to re
proach me for my pertidity."
Very much alarmed by his iucoherent
manner, 1 had instantaneously enst a
glance in the direction of ihe wml w, and
there, sare enough, although for less than
a second, I discerned the same features
that leaw at Liamhamlach. '
Forgetful of everything at the moment,
except a desire to penetrate into this mys
tery, 1 rushed out of the door, and round
to the back pf the house, when fancied
I saw. some object; lying on the ground.
It was no phautom, but the lovely form
rnd features of. Aglae herself who had
fallen fainting en tbe ground. To carry
her into the house was only, the work of a
moment, but it was some time before she
quite recovered.. Ho words can. describe
the joy of Arthur, after the first outburst
of superstitious fear. He danced round
her with frantic delight,' wept and laughed
like a maniac. Then," bitterly reproach
ing himself for the sorrow he had caused
her, he would hardly be consoled. After
this excitement bad in some degree subsi
ded, Aglae told us all that had happened
since they parted. How she had secretly
left her parents, and had written them
after her departure, as to the object of her
journey how she had followed Arthur
from place to place, without having cour
age to make herself known, for fl-ar of a
second repulse. All this, and much
more, the happy wife recounted to out de
lighted ears, and, if ever true happiness
existed on earth, it was not absent from
our circle that evening.
Aglae's parents again reside in England,
in the same old mansion where Arthur had
first seen them. I visit them frequently,
not without hope that a certain lovely
cousin of Aglae's will shortly make me as
happy as my friend Arthur.
A correspondent asks for a remedy for
the depredations of this worm in our or
chards, and if tarring the trees will injure
them (the trees.)
According to Harris these canker worm
moths rise in open and mild winters every
month from October to March. Their
ganeral time of rising is in the spring, be
ginning about the middle of March. We
quote from the above named author:
"Soon after this the females lay their
eggs upon the branches of trees, placing
them 011 their ends close together in rows,
forming clusters of from sixty to one hun
dred eggs or more, which is the number
usually laid by each female. The eggs
are glued to each other uiut to the bark by
a grayish varnish, which is imprevious to
water; and tho clusters are thus securely
fastened in the forka of small branches or
close to the young twigs and buds. These
eggs are generally hutched between tho
first and middle of May."
If possible, therefore, some measure
should be taken to 'prevent the m . th as
cending into the tree. Tar around the
body ot the tree, applied daily while the
moths are rising, is said to bu an effectual
preventive, but il injures the tree and in
volves more labor and expeuse than will
ordinarily be given to an orchard. A dozen
different methods are given to prevent this
climing pest depositing its eggs. We
should let him go it, and then see that
every tree in the 01 chard is cleansed of
these nests and the eggs destroyed. They
are easily found and easily destroyed if the
farmer goes about it resolutely. It is a
very slovenly indication to see an orchard
preyed upon by these worms. There is no
need of it.
Portrait op Fanny Fkrn. The Utica

I met Fanny Fern upon Broadway yes

askew but with a good exprssion withal.
Fanny has passed her hey-day; "no longer

care-worn brow. A sanguine tempera

a strange face, ft says: "1 have known

not be entirely bad. It hints at ugliness

What American Children Eat. A

there were any American children there.
She said there were, and she could tell them
by their pale faces, bright eyes and ner

so many days during the term, from sick

those who were able to be present con

American fare to be a piece of mince pie,

' Which is the best time for going West,
the spring or autumn?"
The best time for going West is when
you have the most money about you, and
the least fear of losing it. If you come in
the spring, you are sure to shake yourself
to death with the ague before fall. If you
come in the fall, you may live until spring,
if you don't freeze before you get here,
f f you come at all, you had better get your
stomach lined with water-proof cement,
so as to digest corn bread, b.icon, and
whisky, for that is all we have to eat, ex
cept a few French frogs and billious-look-ing
tadpoles, which we catch when the
river runs down.
"Does the fever and ague prevail much
Of course it does. No one out West is
simple enough to ask such a question.
Everybody shakes even the very tree
shake. You can't coax a crab apple to
stay on tho tree until it is good for any
thing. It will shake a man off his bed,
kick him out of doors, and shake the bed
stead at him till he gives it up.
"How long does a pre-emption hold
That depends upon circumstances. If
you have a g-od rifle and know how to usm
it, you have one chance in ten that you my
live until you starve to death. Bat if you
can't stand fire, and you are not a good
shot and a quick one, take my word for ic
you had belter tarry in Jericho until your
beard be grown. They are a little too'
emnrt for you in that neck of woods.
Upon the whole, if you have good water,
and can get half enough to eat, my advice
lo you is, to stay where you are.
yA lady tells this story. I had been
out in Indiana on a vuir, and while there
I found a kitten, which I brought home
for a plaything for my two children. T
prevent any dispute about the ownership
of puss, I proposed, and it was agreed,
that the head should be mine, that tlt
body should be baby's, and Eddie, ti.o
eldest-but only three years old-ahould he
the sole proprietor of the long and beauti
ful tail. EJdie rather objected at first i
this division, as putting him off with an ex
ceedingly small share of the aniniul. bub
aoou became reconciled to the divioioii,
