LEAVES FROM TUE LIFE 0FAXAMIS1. THE PAINTER OF ROTTERDAM. BT MISS AMELIA B. EDWARDS, TBI CKI.KT1R ATKT KN0LI8H NOVELIST, AUTHOKKR8 OF "HALF A MILLION OP MONEY," XIO. My father was a trader and distiller at Schie dam, on the Maas. Without being wealthy, we enjoved tbe means ol procuring every social comfort. We gave and received visits from a few old friends, we went occasionally to th theatre, and my father kad his tulip-garden and eumroer-hoube at a little distance from Schiedam, on the banks of the canal which connects the town with the river. But my father and mother, whose only child I was. cherished one dream of ambition, in which, fortunately, ray own tastes led me to participate; I they wanted me to become a painter. "Let me but see a picture of Frank Linden in the gallery of Rotterdam," sata my latner, -ana i sunn cue happy." So, at fourteen years of age, I was removed from school, and placed in the clauses of Messer Keeler, an artist living at De.it. TTofi T marto ennh Tirncrrpaa thfLr.. hv the time I l A-A.-AV. .. , v , ' " '!"- -- had reached mv nineteenth birthday. I was r transferred to the ateher of Hans van Roos, a 8 descendant ot tbe celebrated family ot that time. Van Roos was not more than tnrry-eignt or forty years oi age. and had already acquired considerable reputation as a painter of portraits and sacred subjects. There was an altar-piece of his in one ot ur finest churches; his works had occupied the place of honor for the past sis years at the annual exhibition; and for por traiturtJK lumbered among his pations most of the wcaftiif fcerchante and burgomasters of the city. Indeed, there could be no question that my master was rabidly acquiring a fortune commensurate with his popularity. Still he was not a cheerful mm It was whis pered by the pupils that be had met with a dis appointment earl v in life that he had loved, been accepted, and on the eve of marriage wa9 rejected bv the ladv for a more wealthy suitor. He came "from Frfesland, in the north of Hoi land,"when a very young man. He had always been the same gloomy, pallid, labor loving cui zen. He was a ligid Calvlnist. He was sparing of domestic expenditure, and liberal t. the poor. This every one couli tell you, and no one knew more. The number of his pupiln was limited to six. He kept us constantly at work, and scacely Sermittcd ns to exchange a word with each other urine the day. Standing there among us so silently, wih the light from above pouring down upon his palid face, and becoming absorb ed in the sombre tolds of bi long black dress-inp-pown, ho looked almost like some stern old portrait himself. To tell the truth, we were all somewhat afraid of him. Not that he assumed any undue authority ; on the contrary, he was stn'tely, Pilent, and frigidly polite; but bis polite ness had in it something oppressive, and we were all hunnisr out of his pre-ence. None of us re sided under Ms roof. I had a second floor In a neighboring street, and two of my fellow-stu dents occupied rooms in the same bouse. We used to meet at night in each other's chambers, and made excursions to the exhibitions and theatres: and sometimes, on a summer's even inp, e would hire a pleasure-boat and row for a mile or two down tne nver. we were merry enough then, aud not quite bo silent, 1 promise you, as in the gloomy studio of Hans van Koos. In the meantime, f was anxious to gleun every benefit from my master's instructions. I im proved rapidly, and my paintincs soon excelled those of the other five. My taste did not in cline to the sacred subjects, like that ot Van Roos, but rather tn the familiar rural style of Bcrgbem and Paul rotter. It was my great delight to wander among the rich pasture luuds; to watch an amber sunset, the herds going home to the dalrv. the lazv wind-mills, and the calm. clear waters ol the canals, scarcely milled by the passace of the public terckschuyt. In dc- .nirlinrv awnna rf t hiit nntiirp 1 he slow canal, the yellow-blossomed 'a'e, iiie wiuow-iuucu vault, tuo giiuiutr sun I was singularly fortiiniite. My master never pruit-ed me by wordfer look; but when my father came up one df from Schiedam to visit, he mid to him, in a tone Inaudible to the rest, that "Metmer Franz would do credit to the pro fession;" which so delighted the pood distiller that lib straightway toot me out with him Vr the day, and, having given me flffen gold pieces as a test'monial ot his satisfaction, took me to dine with his friend the burgomaster, Van Gael. It was an eventful visit for me. On that evening I hrft fell In love. Few people, I think, would at thnt time have denied the personal attractions of (iertrude van Gael: jet 1 do not know that It was so much her features as her Bolt voir e and gentle, womauly grace that fascinated me. Though so young, she performed the honors of her father's princely table w ith selt-posspssion and good breeding. In the evening rho sang some sweet German songs to her own simple accompnnlment. We talked of books and ol poetry. I found her well read in Knehhh, French, aud German literature. We (poke of art, and she Uncovered both judgment aud enthusiasm. As we took ourleaveat night the Burgomaster bhook me warmly by the hand, and told me to come often. I fancied that Gertrude's blue eyes brightened when he mud it, aud I felt the color ru.-h quickly to my brow as I bowed and thnnked him. "Franz," said my father, when we were once more in the street, ''how old are ynu V "Just twenty two. sir," 1 replied, rather 'Sur prised at the question. "You will not be dependent on your brush, my boy," continued my lather, as he leaned upon my arm and looked hack at the loftv mansion we had just left. "I have been neither wasteful nor unsuccessful ; and it will be my pride to leave jou a respectable income at my death." I inclined my head la silence, and wondered wht would come next. "Buraoiuasfr van Gael is ono of my oldest friends," said mv lather. "I rave otton heard you speak of hlra. sir," I replied. "And he is lich." "So I thould suppose. " "(iertrude will have a fine fortune," said my father, as If thinking aloud. I bowed again; but this time rather nervously. "Marry her, Franz." I ilrnnned his arm and starred back. "Sir!" 1 faltered, "I I marry the Fraulein van tiaeiT" "And Drav. sir. why not t" said my father, curtly, stopping short in his walk aud leaning ootn bands upon ine top oi tun wauing-suoK. "Why not. sir t" repeated my father, very ener getically. "What could yoo wish for better I The young ladj is handsome., good tempered, educated, and rich. Now, Fran., if I thought you bad been such a fool as to form any other attachment without " "Oh, sir, vou do mo inlusticel" I cried. "But do you think that that she would have me T" "Try her, Fran-," said my father, good hn moredlj, as he resumed my arm. "If 1 am not very much mistaken, the burgomaster would be hs well pleased as myself; an las tor the Frau lien women arc easily won." We had by this time reached the door of the inn where my la'her was to sleep for the nlgUt. As he lctt me his last words were: "Try her, Franz try her." From this time I became a frequent visitor at the house of the Burgomaster van (iael. It was a large, old-ta-hioncd mansion, built of red brick, and situated upon the famous line of hout.es known as the Booinjes. In front luy the broad river, covered with merchant vessels, from whose ma3ts fluttered the flags of all the trading nations ot the world. Tall trees, thick with loliage, lined the quay, and the sunlight flickered through the leaves' upon the spacious drawing-rooms of Gertrude's home. Here, i lght alter night, when the studies of the day were over, I used to Bit with her besl le the open window, watching the busy crowd beneath, the rippling river, and the rhdng moon that tipped the unu-ts and city spires with silver. Here we read together from the first pale stars that trembled Into light. It was a happy time. But there came at last a time still happier, when, one still evening, us we sat alone, conversing in infrequent whispers and listening to the beating of each other's hearts, I told Gertrude that I loved her; and she, hi answer, laid her fair head upon my shoulder with a sweet confidence, as If content sutonut forever. Just as my lather had pic dieted, the burgomaster readily sanctioned our beirothal, speciijing but one condition, and tins v as that our marriage should not take place (ill I had attained my twcntv-tlltk year. It was a lomr lime to w ait, but I should by that time, Ferhaps, have rr.ade a name in my profession, intended soon to send a picture to the annual exhibition and who could tell what 1 might not do in three years to show Gertrude how tfcarlv I loved her ? And so our Uappy youth rolled on, and the quaint old dial in the Messer van Gael's garden told the passage ot our goldcuhours. In the meantime, I worked sedulously at my picture. I labored upon it all the winter; and wuen spring time cume 1 sent it in, with no small anxiety ao to its probable position upon the walls of the gallery. It was a view In one of the streets of Rotterdam. There were the high old houses with their gables and carved door-ways, and the red sun set glittering on the panes of the upper windows; tne caual (lowing uown tne centre oi the street, the white, drawbridge, with a barge just passing underneath, the green trees dep hi j i 1 .1 .1 . . i ..,. 1. iu xne tuuuuw, uuu me n.uiv ui iuj ciiuruu oi nu Lawrence rising beyond against the clear, warm t-ky. When it was' quite finished and about to be sent away, even Hans vsn Roos nodded a cold r ncouru'gement, and said that it deserved a pood position. He had himself prepared a paint ing this year, on a more ambitious scale and a linger canvas than usual. Ic was a sacred sub- iect. and represented the conversion of St. Paul, lis pupils admired it warmly, and none more than myself. We all pronounced it to be his masterpiece, and the artist was evidently of our opinion. The day of the exhibition came at last. I had scarcely slept the previous night, and the early morning found iue with a number of other stu dents, waiting impatiently before the vet un opened door. When I arrived, it wanted an hour to the time, but half the day seemed to elapse betore we neard tne neavy Dolts give way inside, and then lorced our way through the narrow barriers. I had flown up the stair case, and found myself in the first loom before I remem bered that 1 should have purchased a catalogue at the door. I had not patience, however, to go back tor it:so I Btrooe round and round the room. looking eagerly lor my picture. It was nowhere to lie seen, and I passed on to t he next. Here my searcn was equally unsuccessiui. "It must be in the third room." I said to my sell, "where all the best works arc placed! Well, It it be hung ever so high, or in ever so daik a corner, it is, at all events, au honor to have one's picture in tlie third room 1" But. though I spoke so bravely, it was with a sinking heait I ventured m. I could not really hope tor a good place among the magnates of tne art; wnue in eittier oi tne oilier rooms mere had been a possibility that my picture lniatu Te ciive a tolerable Dosilion. The house had formerly been the mansion of a merchant of enormous wealth, who had lelt it, with his valuable collection of paintings, to the State. The tnird room had beeu his iecp ti on-chamber, and the space over the maguiii-cent-carved chimney was assigned as the place of honor to the best painting. The paiuter of this picture always received a costly prize, tor which he was likewise indebted to the muniJ cpnee of the founder. To this spot my eyes were naturally turned as I entered the door. Was I dreamiug? I stood still I turnod hot and cold by turns 1 ran forward. It was no illusion. There was my picture, my own picture, in its little modest frame, installed in the chief place of the gallery ! And there, too, was the official card stuck in the corner, with the words "I'bizb Painting" printed upon it in shining cold letters. I ran down the staircase, and bought a catalogue, tuutmy eyes might be glad dened by the continuation of this Joy ; and there, sure enough, was printed nt the com mencement, " Annual Prlzu Painting View of Kotterdum. No. 127 Vxavz Linden." I could have wept for delight. I was never tired of looking at my picture. I walked from ono side to the other, I retreated, I advanced closer to it, l looked at it tn every possible light, aud forgot all but my happiness. "A very charming little painting, sir," said a voice at my elbow. It was an elderly gentleman, with gold spec tacles and an umbrella. I colored up, and said, lalteriuely : "Do you think so ?" C "1 do sir,." said the old gentleman "I am an amateur 1 am very fond of pictures. I presume tn at you are also an admirer ot art?" 1 bowed. "Very nice little painting, indeed; ve ry nice," he continued, as he wiped his glasses, aud ad justed them with an air of a connoisseur. "Waters very liquid, colors pure, sky transpa rent, perspective admirable. I'll buv it." "Will jour" 1 exclaimed, joyfully. "Oh, thank you, sir !" "Oh," said the old gentleman, turning suddenly upon me and smiling kindly, "so you are tne artist, are you? Happy to make your acquaint ance, Messer Linden. You are a very young man to paint such a picture as that. 1 congratu late you eir; and' I'll buy it." So we exchanged cards, shook hands, and be came the best of friends in the world. I was burning witn impatience to see Gertrude, an d tell her all my good fortune; but my new patron took my arm, and said that he must make tne tour of the rooms in my company; so I was forced to comply. We stopped before a largo painting that occu pied the next best situation to mine; it was my master's work, the Conversion of St. Paul. While I was telling him of my studies tn tne atelier of the painter, a man started from before us, who glided away, b Jt not before I had recog nized the pale countenance of Van Rjos. There was something In the expression of his face that shocked me something that stopped my breath, and uiude me shudder. What was it? 1 scarcely knew; but the glare of his dark eyes-and the quivering passion of his Lip haunted me for the rest of the day, and came back again in my dreams. ' I said nothing ol it to Gertrude that afternoou. but it had effectually sobered mv ex- ultstiou. I dreaded, next day, to return to the studio; but to my surprise, my master received me ns be nev r had received roe before, lie ad vanced, and extended his baud to me. "Welcome, Franz Linden," he said, smiling. "I am Droud to call vou my dudiL" The hand was cold, the voice was harsh, the smile was poKslonlcss. My companions crowded round, and congratulated me, ana m tne warm tones ot their younir, cheeiful voices, aid the close pressure of their friendly bauds, I forgot all that had troubled me in the manner of Van , Roos. Not long after this event. Gertrude's father denred to have her portrait painted, to console him for her absence, he said, when I should be so wicked as to take her a-ay from him. I re commended my old master, whoso tutelage I had recently left ; and Van Roos was summoned to fullil a task that I would gladly have per formed had it been In my power to do so. But portiaiture was not my line. I could paint a sleek spotted cow. or a drove of sheep, far better than the fair skin and golden curls of my darling uer'ruue. She could not enduie the artixt from the first. In vain I reasoned with her all was of no use; and dlA 1 1 B (id tn .n. t (Un ,1 Anir flimli ...... v. ui.., a, lug ruy ui cimj oh. conversation, that she wished the portrait was tinlthe i, and (hat she could no more help dis liking hun than than she could help loving me. do our arguments always ended witn a kiss. Hut tbia portrait took a long time. Van Roos was in general a rapid paiuter; yet Gertrude's likeness progressed at a very slow pace, and, like Penelope's web, seemed never to be com pleted. Due morning I happened to be tn the room a rare event at that tune, tor I was hard at work npon my new laniiscano and I was struck by the change that had come over my lute master. He was no longer the same man. Ihere was a Unlit In his eve and a vibration in his voice that I had never observed before; and w hen he rose to take lenve. there was a studied courtesy in his bow and manner that took me quite by surprise. Still, I never suspected the truth, and still the portrait was as far as ever from being finished. It came out at last, and one morning Han-, van Roos mnde a formal otter of his hand and heart. Ot course, it was refused. "But as kindly as was possible, doar Franz," she said, when she told mo In the evening, "be cause he is your friend, and because he seemed to feel it so 'deeply. -And and you don't know how dreadlully white he turned, and hew ho tried to restrain his tears. I pitied him, Franz; indeed, I was very sorry." And the gentle creature could scarcely Loep from weeping herself as the told me. 1 d'd not see Van Roos for some months alter this discourse. At last, I met him accidentally In front of the stadthouse, and to my surprise, for the second time in his life he held out his hand. "A good day to you, Messor Linden," said he, "I bear that you are on the high road to lame and fortune." "I ha-re been very prosperous, Messer Van Rcos,'' 1 replied, taking the protferod hand. "But I never lorget that I owe my present proti ciency to the hours speot in your atelier." A peculiar expression flitted over his tace. "It I thomrht that," said he hastily, "I I should esteem myself particularly happy." 'Ihere was so odd a 'diderence in ihe way in which he uttered the beginning and ?end of his tcntences so much hurry and passion in the first halt, s,uch deliberate politeness in the last, that I &tnrted and looked him full in the face. He was as smiling and impenetrable us a marble statue. "I, too, have been fortunate," he said, after a moment's pau-c. "Have you Feen the new church lately built near the east end of the Ila-ling-vilet?" 1 replied that I had observed it In passing, bi.t hud r.ot been inside. "I have been entrusted," he said, "with the superintendence of the interior decorations. My 'Conversion of St. Paul' Is purchased for the altar-piece, and I am now engaged in painting a eenes of licscoes upon the ceiling- Will you come In, one day, and give me your opinion upon thersV" I professed mvsclf much flattered, and ap pointed to visit him in the church on the follow ing morning. He was waiting for me at the door when I arrived, with the heavy keys in his hand. We passed in and ha turned the key in tbe lock. "1 always secure myself asrainst intruders," he said, smiling, j "People will'come into the church If I leave the doors unfastened, and 1 do not choose to carry on my art, like a sien-paiuter, in the presence of every' blockhead who chooses to statu and stare at me." It was surprising in what a disagreeable manner this mau showed his teeth when ho broiled. The church was a handsome building, in the Italian style, which intimates the antique, and preiers grace and magnificence to the dicriii'ied sanctity of the Gothic order. A row of elegant Corinthian columns supported the roof at each bide ot the nave; gilding and decorative cornices were lavished in every direction; the gorgeous nltar-piece already occupied its appointed sta tion: and a little to the left of the railed space where the communion table was to be placed a ,'olty fcaticlding was erected that seemed, from where 1 stood, almost to come in contact witn the roof, and above which I observed the yet unfinished sketch of a masterly fresco. Three or four more, alreody completed, were sta tioned at regular intervals, und some others were merely outlined in charcoal upon tlieir intended site. Will vou not come up with me?" asked the painter, when I had expressed iuy'ad miration bi fiiciently ; " or ate you alraid of turning giddv ?" 1 felt poaiewnat disinclined to impose tins trial on my nerves, but still mor disinclined to confess it: so 1 followed him up from flight to liight Of the frail structure without once daring to look down. At last we reached the summit; as I had sup posed, there was not even room cnougn tor tne artist to assume a sitting posture, ana ue naa to paint while lying on his back. I bad no fancy to extend myself on this lofty couch; so I only 1-iliiH mv lintifl (iltnvn tlin lnvl nt' hie flAnriiity looked at the fresco, and descended iramediutery to the flight below, where I waited till he ro- loined me. " now dantrerous it must be," saia l, suuacier- ing, "to let yourself down from that abominable perch r' "l used to tninK so -t ursi," ne replied, -dud I am now quite accustomed to it. Fancy," said ne. aiyprotiching c ose to the edgo ot the scat' folding, "fancy falling from here to the church below." "Horrible!" crld I. "1 wonder how high it Is from the levei of the pavement," continued Van Roos, musingly, "a hundred and eighty leet, 1 dare say perhaps two hundnd." I drew back, trid.lv at tbe thought. "No man could survive such a fall," said the painter, still looking over. "The thickest skull would be dashed to atoms on the marble down there." "Pray, come away," said I, hastily. "My head swims at tbe very idea." "Does it?" said he, turning suddenly upon me, with the voice and eye of a fiend "does it? Fool !" he cried, as he seized mo rouud the body In his iron clasp "fool, to trust yourself here with me-me whom you nave wronged, whose life you havo blasted me wnom you have crossed in lame aud in fove. uown, wretch, down! I've vowed to have your blood, and my time has cornel" It sickens mo even now to recall that despc rate snuggle. At the first word 1 had sprung back and seized a beam above my head. He strove to tear me from it. He foamed at the mouth : the veins rose like knots upon his fore bend: and still tnouerh I lelt my wrists strained and my fingers cruelly lacerated still I held on with the terrible energy of one who struggles for dear Hie. It lasted a long time at feast u seemed lone to me and the scaffolding rocked beneath our feet. At lengtn I saw his strength failing. Suddenly I loosed my hold, and threw my whole weight upon him. He staggered, he shrieked,' he tell. I dropped upon my face in mute horror. An nge ol silence seemed to elapse, and the cold dews stood upon my brow. Presently I heard a dull sound far below. I crawled to the brink ot the soatlol'linir and looked over. A shapele-s mas was lying on the marble pavement, and all around wwas red witn blood. I think, an hour must have elapsed before I could summon courase to descend. When, at length, I reached the level ground, I turned my face lrom what was so near my feet, and tot tered to the door. With trembling hands and misty eyest I uulocked it aud rushed into the street. It was ninny months before I recovered from the brain fever brought on by that terrible dav Mv ravinirs. I have been told, were fearful: and had any doubt existed in the minds of men a to which of ns two had been the guilty one, those ravings were alone sullicient to establish my in nocence. A man In a delirious fever Is pretiy sure to speak tbe truth. By the time I win able to leave my chamber, Gertrude hnd also Rrown pale and spint.ess. and all unlike her lormer self. Rotterdam was insupportable to me. I found myself a hero of romance a Bon a th'ng to be stared at wherever I went; all of which only served to shatter my nerves still more. In sbort, cnanpe oi air and scene was recomincnaca for us both; so we thought we could not do bet ter than marry, and take our wedding tour for the sake of our healths. And I assure you, reader, it did us both it great deal of good. PROPOSALS. I'RKASCRT DF.rARIMEKT, OFFICE Llulir. HOUSE HOAKD. WABH1HQTO!! ClTT, January 6, 1SG.
