' A Dream at Seville, j 1 To use a favorite modern idiom, I had "done" Seville.' I had seen the religious processions which enliven the Holy Week 1 had seen the first bull-fight of the season I had visited the annual fair, and I had lounged through the superb gardens of the Duke of Montpensir. An object in these gardens, which a particu lar impression on my mind, was a sort of grotto, to whioh the Duke had transferred on the dilapidated tombs of Don Juan, the commandant and his daughter. When one night I fell asleep in . my lodging, 1 once more found myself stand- ing iore ine gnasuy recess, ana gazing at the three tombs, the fieurts in which were in a sadly mutilated condition.' The great libertine himself, Don Juan Teno- rio, historically known as the friend of Don Pedro the Cruel, King of Spain, be. ing altogether destitute of a face ei suggested commonplace reflections. ' I had fine opportunity for repeating Hamlet's soliloquy in the churchyard with modifica. cations suitable to the occasion. . I could say ; that Don Juan had a mouth, and could sing once, nay, that his living rep. resootatives sing the musio of Mozart; but that even the stone copy of his lips had now passed away, and I could extend my profound meditations to the nose and the chin. The opportunity was not to bo re. sisted, and 1 was mentally uttering a world of twaddle, when I found nyself checked by the gradual appcaranco of features on the image before roe. The features, as they becamenistinct, were clearly not of stone; but of actual flesh and blood. Even the body had -lost itg stony aspect, and seemed to cover itself with the semblance of clothes gay clothes in the old Andulusiao style When the transition state through which the figure was evidently passing was quite over, 1 perceived, to my utter amazement, that the features at which I gazed , were my own. A moment atterwaiUs the spectre had vanished, and I found myself extend ed on a remarkably har-i couch. 1 moved my hands and arms somewhat stiffly, and gradually raised myself. My costume was superb; a plumed hat lay at my side, likewise a guitar, likewise a word. I wrb still in the grotto, and so were the figures of the commumlaut and his daughter; but that of Don Juan wus gone, and the place where it had laid was occupied by me. But perhaps I was not accurate. Perhaps it was 1, and not the gallant Don, who had parsed into noth ingncss. My uimcultics wore somewhat enigmat ically resolved by a voice which proceeded from the figure of tho commandant. Contemplation begets absorption, and absorption begets assimilation. Idle wan, dercr from the north, hast thou not pres ent sins enough around the, that thou must gloat over the wiokedness of tho' past? Thou art now identified with the mortal who took my life, and on whom was so, terribly revenged. In short through a strange sort of metempsychosis, whereof Pythagoras spake not, thou art now Don Juan Teuorio. ,; , I was horrified, but not altogether dis The love of fame, we are taught by Dr. Young,', is tho universal passion and if Lord Byron awoke one morning and found himself famous, so had I, by merely going to sleep, arrived at a simi lar result. Hence horror soon gave place to the most perfect satisfaction. I girded on the sword, and I clapped on the plumed hat but I left the guitar where it was, feeling that, as I was do master of the mstru merit. It would iimulv be an encum hrnnce. The voio4 burst out into an awful, but Certainly hearty laughi ' "",'.' ' 'Thou lookest forth to a brilliant ca reer," it said ; "and evil a thou hast ever beeni thou shalt ft he Mraitenod through laok o$ means, liaise tlf at guitar from the groundi and thou wilt find a purse, that will remain inexhaustible till tbou re turnest hither." .' ' ( , , ' ', , "A purso of Fortunatus " I exclaimed with delight, when I had obeyed the in- junction of the voice. "I never heatd of Fortunatus," growled the'voice, ,;but f flatter myself thft my plans' are porfoctly original. Mind you are' m oroDerty ; 1 shall always loot aft fcr" JOU', ud now and then i siall maka myself visible; " You' will' recognize me by the coldness- 6f my stern hind,- and by mv utter want of fabb," ."Very good1," I replied, for T was too much , elated to ear about particulars; only let me start at onoe, No sooner had 1 spoken these words, than I found myself in the Plaza Nueva, the principal square of Seville. Loungers were resting upon the seats, laden mules were making the air musical with their bells,' Arabs were selling insipid drinks in their kiosks, water-carriers with their jars were vociferously inviting passengers to taste their primitive beverage ; in short, I was in the centre of modern Andalusiao life. ':; " ' - ' ' ' ' Had t been in London, 1 should assur edly hive attracted a mob of boys, and should consequently have found my way to the station house.' ' In the granr) square of Seville, though. I certainly was dressed differently from any one else, I was spared this measure of affliction. The costumes in Spain are to various to render tolera tion of strange clothes impossible, and the only persons who persecuted me were the beggars, who are ever impelled by a de sire to follow strangers of opulent appear ance. '' ' ' ' As far as I could overheaT the remarks of observers, popular opinion favored the theory that I was a newly-arrived bull-i fighter, proud to exhibit in public the equipments proper to the ring. I there fore deemed it expedient to purchase a largo cloak, which, flung over my shoul ders, descended to my heels, and to ex change my plumed hat for an Andalusiao cap of modest dimensions. - But under that cloak remained the Tenorio, sword and all. 1 " ' ' ' Was I to wear the adventurous habit in inglorious ease? Was I simply to quaff pure water from the glasses proffer ed by the carriers, and sip the mawkish beverages' vended in' the kiosks? Or was I to achieve some adventure worthy of the audacious being into whom I had been absorbed. Evening set in, and my doubts were resolved by a loud sound of clapping and stamping, which I heard issuing from the first floor of a house by which I was pass ing. On this first floor was tho ball-room of Seville, and the noise was mado by gipsies, male and female, who were oxe. cuting national dances, accompanied by no other music. I paid my dollar, the required price, and I entered the ball-room, where two rough artists, dressed like the commonest peasants, were going through the wildest gesticulations, while the gipsy brethren and sisterhood were furiously clapping their hands. Other dancers, attired in ballet costume, relieved the rugged per formance with capers of a more stagey kind ; but two clasres had this in com. mon, that every lady belonging to cither troop had a right to fling her handkerchief into the lap of any spectator she might design thus to honor. Nor was tho favor disinterested. The honored spectator was bound to put a dol lar into the handkerchief, and when the dance was over to bear it gracefully to the lovely owner, Wnen a certain strapping gipsy-girl, with eyes like sloes, with her back hair tied into the knot indicative of her race, with a dingy white dress descending to her toes,'' and with a singularly prebian handkerchief bound across her shoulder, datted at me flashing glances, I knew what was coming. Nevertheless, I was literally beside myself when she sprang towards the place where I sat, and with a counte nance in which the lovo of hard cash beamed resplendent, figured away before me like a bacchante, searching my face with the fire that flashed from her eyes, was enchanted, in a tow moments the solicitous handkerchief was on my knees, and the gipsy, boutfdin a'tfay to another part of the room allowed me leisure for meditation. ' , Could I not now do something wor thy of an' hidalgo' of fife old, reckless- school ? By the law of the room, the favored spectator could not put less than dollar into the handkerchief ) but there was no law restricting his maximum'. The dance was over, and availing' myself of mv exhaustless purse, I deliberately counted out twenty gold pieces, faking the greatest care not to be unobserved.- Now the Spaniards, as a rule, are not expensive in their enjoyments. I was once in a show in Seville, the patrons of whioh hating, in return for a penny piece, seen an excellent conjuror1 perform many tricks, three ballets, and two plays, acted by puppets-s-tbo whole lasting two hours were on the 66rat Of making a ri ot, on the ground that thYj had ' ioi re ceive enough for their money, ( Vcr sftfefy did I ook ' I' btifa the golden treasure to the fascinating gipsy : but titter passed through tho assembly, hich made me uneasily doubt whether 1 really was an object of unwixed admiration. Was I simply making a fool of myself? The gipsy sparkled with gratitude ; but a curious smile which played upon her lips gave weight to the mental self-interrogation. , ' --.J . ;...-.:: ': A bold, quick effort was neeessary for the salvation of my dignity, I resolved violently to abduct the gipsy amid the horrors of the assembly. I seized her by the wrist . , At that moment I was aware of a sen sation suggesting the notion that I had been boxed on the ear by a paving stone, and I became immediately unconscious. When I had recovered, I found myself at the corner of thi street, of which, the 'Man of Stone" (Hoinbre de Piedra), still records the frightful visit paid to my predecessor. , ' A gunnt person, without a face, was looking down upon me, as benignantly as it could under the disadvantageous cir cumstances. Of course it was the com mandant. "For the sake of . auld lanjr syne," s he said, "I have saved you from an unpleas- ant difficuly. : It was I who knocked you down!" ' ' ' ' A3 I lacked words to express my dubi ous gratitude, the figure, after a pause, continued : . - r . "While you were committing that ab- surdity in the ball-room you did not no tice a slim gipsy, who is the intended of that extremely plain and vulgar dancer. That ingenious person carries a sort of needle, with which he is caple of inflicting a stab, unpercelved at the moment, but, in the long run, certainly fatal. This needle he was on the point of using, but by my . timely box on your ear, he was prevented from so doing. Be wiser in futures I expressed my thanks with all the . 1 ' - : . gratitude which a man with cars lustily boxed is able to foci towards the dealer of the blow ; but I despised the counsel of my benefactor. ' Was I not the Don J uan Tenorio, who a few centuries nao had carried off Dona Anna (they call her Inez at Seville), and was I not therefore bound ir honor to do something desperate ? With my cloak closely wrapped around me, 1 strayed unwittingly beyond the boundaries of the city, and entered the fuir, which, as usual, was held on the ad. joining plain. .. i I walked through tho most fashionable of the temporary streets, where all the noble and gentle families of Seville lived for three days, each in a separate stall, or met in a ball-room, erected in their immetiate vicinity. The sound of the chat in the brilliant stalls, and of the mu. sio in the ball-room, sounded pleasant to my car;' but I passed on to a less iunable quarter, and rested myself in a stall of humble appearance, raided for the sale of "bouuelos." The "bonuelo" is a sort of a fritter, of ring-like form, made by gipsysonly, under the very noses of their customers, and vended at a price ridiculously low. When I had consumed a lof'y-mountain of these delicacies,' and washed it dtwn with detestable liq'uor, resembling aniseed, I proceeded on my way ; for though I ex cessively admired a very handsome gipsy woman, who had waited upon me,. I was somewhat awed by her stern, hard Tea. tures. "X will'aild that my adventure in the dan cing-room bad made me shy ot gipsies in general. ., . . v. , , ;t I reached, a booth, on which huug a boldly painted pioture of a giantess, and into which a crowd was thronging. I paid the price of admission, and entering the booth, saw . the giantess seated on a chair of state. Rising, she made a speech, stating the particulars of her birth, de scent and stature, and then invited me, as the tallest of the company, to stand by her side, that her own . stupendous hight might be rendered more obvious by by comparison, . , , . . Vi . The multitude applauded ; I looked up to the giantess, the giantess looked down upon me, ami otfr eyes' meeting spoke un utterable things. . . ..,,,,, Here, at last, was an opportunity for somethifftf wonderful., I would1 catty off Tho rest of, the kpctators quitted the booth, and was left alone with the col ossal beauty'; but soon' a stranger in mil. irary attire made his appearance at ( the back pf the booth, arid, in a peremptory voice, insisted on my immediate departure. Having this, time resolved to encounter extremities, f drew1 my sword,- iKRlf fan" the intruder through the body, whe'reupqu' he fell dead, while a smile of calm satis-' faction passed over the ips of the giant- i' MUM T.J ill ' ess.' Of remorse for this atrocious deed I did not feel a particle.' ,'i t '. Perceiving a handy stool, I placed it by. the side of the lovely being,' and, standing upon it, flung my arms as far round her waist as the vastness of its cir cumference would permit. : "Fly with me into another land, glory of thy sex!" I exclaimed. There was one difficulty on which I had not calculated, namely, the exceeding weight of the giantess.' My mad niten tion had been to carry her off on my shoulders, as Lothair carries Claudine in the Miller and his Men. I might as well have attempted to bear Oog and Magog from their site in Guildhall. The giantess yelled with laughter at my very ridiculous positiou, which, how ever, she varied by catching me up in her arms and carrying me, like a baby, out of the booth. On she stalked through the fair, fol lowed by a shouting multitude ; but our joint popularity did not reach its hight till we came to the more aristocratic street The gossips ceased to gossip, flirtations were bought to a sudden stand-still, the musicians left off playing, the dancers stopped in the midst of tho dance ; all the beauty and fashion of Seville were absorb ed ' in the contemplation of two objects, the giantess and her puny burden ; the former being regarded with admiration, tho latter with contempt. Derision rose around me in titters, and amidst the confusion of roars and shrieks I clearly distinguished a deep guffaw, in which I recognized th stern lungs of the commandant. ., . .... , I fainted away, crushed into uncon sciousness by the weight of my own ab surdity. '' I-'-1 '. 'l When I had recovered, I slowly pulled myself together, and became aware that I was lying in a ' vast circus. From the ground, at the circumference of this oir cus, ' seats arise in step-like order, and above these was a gallory, furnished with other seats, which arise in step-like order likewise.,- ,! j : ' ,,: .', It was a bright sunny afternoon, and in Seville the tun is tbe source ot even more heat than light. My faceless friend (or enemy) stood by me, and spake thus : . ' ' ,' "You had better have followed my ad vice; but as your sr determined to make yourself conspicuousi JOtl Shall have your own ridiculous way. Today is the Tue day in Easter-week ; this is the Plaza de Toros, or bull-ring. In half an hour the bull-fight will begin, and ou are destined to be the matador." . . , . "I am aware," I said, "that the mata, dor is the person who kills the bull with a sword " , i "Such is the rule," interrupted the face, less one, '-but you will possibly illustrate the doctrine that there is no rulo without an exception." . . ,, "I have never gone through the train, ing of a matador,' I objeoted. "The more extraordinary will be your performance," was tho reply. "Be so kind as to give me your sword, throw oS your large cloak, take this smaller cloak into your hands, and make the besVof your situation." . .m'-i ' The faceless figure vanished when had obeyed its .injunction. A sound as of many trampling feet - was around me, and soon all the seats were filled ; those on the ground floor with the roughs, those in the gallery with the respectability of Seville. Musio was played by a band and, after a pause, a huge bull entered the arena, looking very strong, af4 very dis agreeable, and the chulos, whose office it is to tease the animal, with small cloaks, like the oft with which 1 was covered made their appearanoe. My exceptional funotiona as matador not having yet to be performed, I was expected to do nry duty with the other chulos. ! Much diversion' wa slfforded to the spectators, when chulo after ohulo spread his cloak , olose to the bull's nose, and nimbly sprang out of hit Way, when dan. gor was at hand.' 'i J ( ' . . . r, I spread out myV cloak .Jike my com rades ; but it was at a distance' from the bull's nose, and I could not help wonder ing; that my peouliar caution scorned to attract no notioe on the part of the pub lic. Jvn-i ., 'i'. '":in'i 1- h: TrrB picadolce, that is to say, the fighU era who ndW wretched horses, and tantal ize the bull by poking him (with long speaVs, i)egan thoir work. ' ' ft spite of the r"eifl aitempU of the' other chulos, and the pretended attempts on iby1 pari to divert the fury of the bull by the ostentatious exhibitions of cloaks," four or five h6rses ,were ripped up and perished miserably, amid the deafeneriing plaudits of .the spectators. .--07 ".f I The time had now arrived for the in fliction of the additional form of torture, which consists of meeting the bull, and flinging abundantly feathered darts, called bandilleras, iuto his shoulders, A smarl little chulo,the smile of whose countenance, whenever he came near me, showed that he bad appreciated iuy maneuvres, stalked' up boldly to the infuriated animal with a' dart in each upraised hand, and flinging his weapons as one would Sing a shuttle cock from a , battledore, fixed them .with exquisite precision each of the hostile shoulders, ;. the whole circus thundering with acclamations of delight. .The partic ular bull that flourished on this occasion was to be treated with particular honor.' Tae second pair of bandillcrai was to, be thrown, not by a common cnulti,'. but by the matador, namely, myself. ,fa(j , .
