After dinner he took me up to hie study, where he sat smoking and talking in tfis frankest man ner. Among other things, lie told me of the people who waylaid him, the incidents being sometimes very amusing. Two men for example, Inning got into his garden separately, one. climbed a tree at the hjs proacli of the other. The other, seeing him, called out, softly, “I twigl" and immediately climbed another tree. And yet he declared that no man was more accessible than he to any one who had any good reason for wishing to see him, or had any introduction to hint. So I, for one, certainly found it, the hospitalities of Faringlord having been offered to me be yond my willingness to accept them. It had been a stormy evening, and the night was of pitchy darkness when 1 started out, against kind invitations to remain, to go to the “Albion" inn near by. Tennyson insisted on showing me a nearer way, but amidst the darkness got oil Ids bearings. Bidding me walk close behind him, we went forward through the mud, when suddenly 1 found im self precipitated some oiglit or ten feet downw ard. Bitting in the mud, I called on the poet to pause; but it was too late : he was speedily seated beside me. This was seeing the Laureate of England in a new light, or, rather, hearing him under a new darkness. Cov ered with mud, groping about in the dark ness, ne improved the odd occasion with such an incessant run of witticisms and anecdotes that I luid to conclude that we had readied a condition which had dis covered treasures of fun and humor in him before unsuspected. His deep bass voice came through the congenial darkness like a mirthful thunder, not without flashes of light; and the shades of all who ever stumbled in the night seemed around him. and to remind him of a whole literature of such emergencies. Vexation was at least not among tlie shadows that encompassed us. though for a time we were wandering in a muddy liehl, with no object, not even the sky visible. “That this should have happened alter dinner!’' lie exclaimed. “Do not nient on this to the temperance folk." Tennyson’s love of fun, his wealth of witty stories, were from the first a sur prise to me. llur, indeed, he is personally very difl'en i t in every way from the man I expected to see. Tall, of dark complex ion, with a di e]) and blunt voice and man ner, almost Quaker-like in its plainness, fired of the homeliest Saxon words, he seemed to he the last person one would June picked out as the delicate and super artistic idylist. in conversation he never rose into any thing like the heroic strain, except when speaking of England. His pride in his country amounts to a passion. He had also a keen interest in all scientific subjects, concerning which he had evi dently read a great deal. He spoke much of the philosophical questions of the day, also, his interest in which has led to the formation of the meetings for discussion between Huxley, Tyndall, l)r. Manning, James Martineau, himself, and others. Next morning it was found that Mrs. Ten nyson had directed the gardener to make some improvements at that point which had not been completed. A walk was in existence there, however, at the close of the next day, to which was given a name commemorative of the catastrophe, which was happily without any unpleasant results. The next morning was brilliant, and the poet took me on a walk around the manor of which he is lord, the advantages of the position bring that he can have his sheep graze on the common, which otherwise belongs as much to the public as to himself. The house is modest and cheerful, sur rounded by beautiful trees, with, on one side, a thicket of wild bushes and pines, very favorable to the pursuers already mentioned. The window of his study opens on a magnificent sea view. The quiet home where Tennyson dwells, sur roundi d by a eh inning household, is well portrayed in his invitation to the Kev. F. D. Maurice: Where, far from ^moke and noise of town, I w.tbh tin* twilight tailing brown All round a c-nclcss ordered garden, ( iu»r to the ridge of a noble down. “You’ll have no scandal while you dine, But hoot ft talk and wholesome wine, And only hear the magpie gossip Han uloinj under u roof of pine. “For groves of pine on either hand, To break the blast of winter, stand; And further on the hoary ehunnel Tumbles a breaker on chalk aud sand.” The poet has sometimes received as well as sent out poetical invitations. Here is one from Walter Savage Lamior: “I entreat you, Alfred Tennyson, i ione and share my haunch of venison. 1 have, too, a bin of < lurel, liood, but bt tier when you share it.
