UNCLE JERRY'S (MOST. It hiM been satti that all children are naturally credulous. I do not be lieve it. At least it wib not so with me. From my infancy I hnve been inclined to skepticism, a id have had a stronger propensity to doobt than to believe on almost every subject. I was especially incredulous with regard to ghosts, about whom, as I suppose is cominon with children, I heard many narratives, said to be welbau thenticated. Bat I never put any faith in them, aad bi I rrcw up to manhood I was in the habit of treat ing the. aubjeot with ridicule. A friend of mine, whom I fthftll call Smith, that being a nnmc by which his real cognomen may be most suc cessfully concealed, was on the con trary, from the manhood, credulous, Bid, I may say, almost superstitious, cspecirtlly on tht subject of visitors from the unseen world:. It is now more than a quarter of a century since Smith and I were fellow students at a Urge boarding school. We were inseperable friends, nnd siept in the same bed. He was a troublesome bed-fellow, and frequently disturbed my slumbers by starting up in his dreams, which were almost al ways about gho9ts. I remember very distinctly many of the poor fellow's experiences, one of which I will re late for the reader's edification. On one occasion our teacher gave us a tea-party, to which were invited moat of the boys and girls in the neighborhood, Cake and confection ary, almonds and raisins, oranges, kisses, mottoes, and other good things were provided in abundance. The master seemed determined to make some amends for the short commor.8 on which we had been kept, and, as I have thought since, to impress upon the villagers an enlarged idea of his liberality, and of the happiness of the young gentlemen and ladies who were so fortunate at his bountiful ta ble. The evening spascd delightfully in eating and drinking, in romping, and in playing blind-man's buff, hunt the slipper, pillow and keys, and u va riety of other" games, in which the master condescended to assist: and even the mistress, a remarkably sharp visaged lady, irave us instrtruction. 0, it wns a merry timo, you may be sure! and no one enjoyed it better than my ghost-ridden chum. 1 remember distinctly how he com plied with the directions given to the owner of a jack-knife, when, to re deem that pitwn, he was directed, be- ing une anu not uperüne, to oow to the wittiest, kneel to tho prettiest, and kiss the one he loved best.; Smith bowed to the v madam, whereat we all set up it loud laugh; but he knew what he was about, and then knell with a face of wonderful 'r;ivity cunning Smith to the madame's red-haired daughter Jerusha. At this too some of tho villatre-inrls snickered, but we, members of the academy, knew better, and looked grave, as if we really agreed in the opinion that Jcrusha was tho the belie of the evening. There was a momen tary pause, and all were eagerly watching to see whom he could se lect as the ono he loved best, for Smith was a fine-looking fellow, then almost fiiteen, ami hta father was said to be rich. To the surprise of us all, he selected for this special favor a little dumpy girl, whom almost everybody had neglected, and upon whose plump cheek he implanted a rousing kiss. These details are pernaps of little interest '.o you, oi i fogy; buf to us thev wore as momentous and and im portant as you choose to deem the torn -fooleries of Congress in pretend ing to elect a speaker, and wasting tun day after day on a matter of about as much consequence. Like all good things in this lower sphere tin party cvme to un end. It was about eleven o'clock, and as nobody came for Jemima, (so was the dumpy girl called.) Smith, with some little reluc tance, agreed to sec her home. I had no call for my services in this line, and immediately went to bed, where I soon fell into a dreamless sleep. How long I slept I know not. I was suddenly aroused by a violent shaking of the bed; and the first sounds that met my ears were groans and ejaculations from my chum, whom I found laying by my side, and b.ttSied in it moxt profus.' swrjit. "Why, 8mith' said I, -what is the matter? are you nick?" "No," taid he; "but 0 dear, O denr, such anight as I have had, and such a chase. Thert'9 been a ghost after me!" r "A ghost," said 1; "nonsense, There ib no such thing." "Isn't there?" said he. "One chas-d mo all through the grave-yard, aud I think he's in the room now. Do you see anything?" During this short coloquy, Smith had his face buried nndcr the quill, and 1 lotind he had got into bed with ovt undressing himsnlf. I jumped up and succeeded in striking a light, which somewhat allayed my compAn ion's trepidation. He sat up in the bed, and gaacd wildly around tho room. Me isa.t there," ho said; "but do lock the door." "That's of no use," saidl. "for if it be really a ghoat ho can come thro' the key-hole." To please him, how ever, 1 turned tho key, and in the course of the uight, for neither of us fell asleep until tho gray dawn of morning streamed through the win dow, he refuted in broken snatches his wonderful adventure It seems that after leaving Jemima at her home, and while passing the village grave-yard on his return, his attention was suddenly arrested by a tall figure arrayed in a white robe. It stood direetlv in. front of him, ap- parcntly determined to hedge up his hedgt way. Smith crossed to the other1 su e. The ir host did the same. CJ Thus they both continued, 1 know not how long, Smith said more than an hour, he trembling and unable to say a word; the ghost calm and equally silent, hating apparently no other ob ject than to frighten the poor boy and prevent his passage. "Why did you not speak to tho un mannerly scamp?" said I. Speak to him, indeed! Poor Smith could not have uttered a word if his life had de pended upon it. He blessed his stars for a lucky thought (hat at length oc curred to him. This was to turn about and take to his heels. This he did; but the ghost was after him. Smith jumped over the fence into the grave-yard, and made, as he said, a circumbendibus. aThe spirte, or what ever it was, pursued him. Smith de clared that it followed him into the house, up the stairs, and at the door of our bed-room had hold of him by the tail of his coat, nnd, as he verily believed, came into the room with him. How this may be I cannot tell. The ghost was certainly invisible af ter the cnndle was lighted. I am bound by my regard for truth to add that my poor chum':i coat it was a bright blue with metal buttons was actually torn, as he showed me in tin morning, being to him a satisfactory assurance that the ad ven.ure could not have been merely imaginary. Smith had many more visions which were equally mysterious, but which it is unnnecessary to relate. As for myself I must confess that I still continued incredulous. I heard indeed strange noises at times, and once I did see at the window some thing white, which had terrified my chum, and roused him from sleep at midnight. It di3appeared, however, before I had time to examine it, and thnnrrh T w a littlr. frightened I aR- sumed a tray swagger and lauirhed Not to dwell upon those boyish days, lot me come to more recent and intinitelv stranrer developments and .. -a -- more unaccountable adventures. The reader, as I relate my unvarnished tale, shall decide for himself whether or no I have cause to repent my ju venile incredulity- a o m After leaving the boarding-school, Smith and I althou-di we lived in the samccitv saw each oth-r only occa-1 sionally ' Our pursuits have been dif-1 ferent, but we we.e always friendly. I attended his weddiug when he claim ed Jemimah for his own, and he was one of the guests when Eliza Jane made me happy. But I need not en- ax ter upon family m itters boon after the firm develonements . made by the spint-ruppeis, when as whin a vet thev were onlv able to comrauni- j . . I . cato letter by letter, and mAi;HM knew how to write, Smith paid me a friendly visit. My little ones had said their prayers and gone to bed. We sat and talked of old times, my wife having also retired, not finding our convocation sufficiently soothing to allay a r.ick headache, to which she was subject. We ch itted until midnight, and he was preparing to leave, when abruptly I asked, aud. I confess it, with a kind of laugh 'Well, Smith, how about ghosts? Do you ever see any now-a-days?" The solemnity with which he heard and answered this question startled mc. "Believe in spirits?" he said: "why tllt-V Hir all nrnuii'l US ii luim fn. quem communications from the inle- nor. "Frora where?" said I, in breath less astonishment. "From the interior; that is," he continued, "from the invisible world.' This, of course, awakened a deep interet-t, and, if I must confess it, ex cited what the reader may deem, per haps, an unhallowed curiosity. He must remember, however, that I was still skeptical, nor vas ray faith large ly increased by the further statements which I succeeded in pumping out of my friend. They amounted, briefly, to the fact that he wus in the habit of attending, weekly, a select circle. Whilo in this circle he had been fa vored with revelations from his dead father, ditto mother-in-law, ditto his youngest cnild. who went into the in terior, he told me, when only a month old. He had alto had messages from Oeneral Washington, lied Jacket, Swedenborg, and, if I remember rightly, from Mary Queen of Scots; and also from ('apt. Riley, whose wonderful narrative was, in our young days, exceedingly popular. "It is hardly credible, tha( these illustrious people would want to communicate with you." "So I used to think.'' he replied; "but I know better now. 1 have had message from them all. Captain Hiley is as sociable as my own father, and his revelations have been equally explicit and candid. "Do you re member." he continued, "the spirit who visited ine when we were at the bourding School?" 'I remember," said I, "the story you told me about a ghost clofing you thro' the giave-yard." "Don t say ghost. replied he, with great solemnity. "It was, as she herself has since told tne, the spirit of my Jemima's mother, who had then been in the fourth sphere v x i al years, and wlm thu, cie lite spiritual alphabet had been intented, sought to communicate with me." "What upon earth," I asked, "did tho old woman want? Was the tin iff bent upnn making a match between you and Jemima?" I saw, by Smith's couutenansc, that I had offended him by this ill-timed levity. I felt rebuked. I apologized, and begged his pardon "My dear follow," bu said, ".why Mill ,,i t fw.raisf in VAitr L ..i, t i.M all.
