SHADOWS OF THE PAST.
BY FLORENCE LEI LA !tD, ALIAS CAMEO.
Written for the Intelligencer.
Five miles cast of tho city of Wheeling,
far apart from its dusty streets and busy
thoroughfares, in a beautiful little valley,
crowned by the thickly covered hills of
"Went Virginia, is situated the scattered
village of Elm Grove. Tracing vines of
ivy in loveliest festoons ornament the unpretending
cottages, whilo tho artistic decoration
of wealth graces tho more majestic
structures; among which Shepherd's Ilall
is the first in intercstfor its antiquity, and
tho circumstances which long years ago
surrounded tho life of its early mistress.
1 t
<>wuuiiivUt> 1UVU DU UCIIICU IUJ MUtllO IIUHI
the fact that 'the first lady of Shepherd
Hall, in compliment to her esteemed
friend Ilenrv Clay, erected a memorial
whose snowy peak has glistened in the
sunlight of many years; defying the 3torms,
tho tempests and the lightning's.flash?the
monument of the Kentucky statesmanstill
stands an honor to his memory. In
driving down the National Piko the first
view of tho old Shepherd llall, now the
country-seat of Major Loring, recalls to our
minds that
"There *undj n grand old autle,
All ivy jrown niidgray;
Near by a ilrtam that murmur*
On its sweet aud ill very way."
Oh, what a host of strange fancies crowd
the dense .brain of thought, as it wanders
through ttie lahyriuthian walks about the
place rendered interesting in. the social history
of Wheeling, from the recollections of
past events, in which mingled the honored
statesmen, noble warriors and gallant men
of other years. Every tree seems haunted
with some shadow of the past. Earth
spreads its artistic ^reeu drapery down the
beautiful and widely extended lawn in
front of Shepherd Hull, sloping gradually
to a level plane, which like a peaceful little
valley lies at the loot of a small range
of hills, upon the 'summit of which is
situated the quiet City of tho Dead; the
sepulchre of past generations. The old
stone church still stands unviolated by the
traces of time, while the early worshippers
who gathered, within its walls were long
since laid to rest beneath the shadows of
its church yard, What sublime thoughts
are instilled iu the human heart by the
hovering spirits of those lonely dead v^ho
in the fond embraces of their mother earth
are sleeping their last sleep in tho quiet of
a country church yard! The grounds
about Monument Place are a study in
themselves. To the right of the long drive,
just a short distance from the entrance
gate, the first object which would naturally
attract the.observation of a stranger is the
curious mass of stone erected In monumental
form. Yes, as children we had first
learned of the illustrious statesman, and
the monument standing to-day in honor of
Henry Clay was erected in a far off time,
the forty-fourth year of American independence,
when the thriving city of Wheeling
was an unpretending village and a
haunt of the lied men. Upon the summit
of the patriot'* monument the Goddess of
Liberty has majestically stood for nearly
three quarters ot a century. Beneath itare
carved in stone the letters almost defaced
by the imprint of time, though the keen
eye can discover its tracks, the lines traced
by bands that are cold and silent in death.
How strangely the words seem to impress
one! With what force the lines come upon
us, like an echo from departed days, as we

inaependcuce.
ISSO DOMINI 1S20.
Only a few yards from the monument
on the spot where once stood an old fort ill
the days when - Indians ravaged the country,
is situated the rustic arbor. What a
beautiful retreut in the midst of this rural
world! Numbers of delicate vines have
clamored to the top of the arbor, shutting
out the last faiut traces of day as they linger
in its twilight about its" narrow entrance.
The view from the little doorway
is truly a beautiful. one. Not more than
two or three feet away is a precipice overlooking
a stream of rippling water as it
flows picturesquely along in the fulfillment
of.itslinission. it isthisromaticpeak which
youthful minds have termed "Lovers'
Leap,"though why it has derived that name
isonly known to the originators. Whether
any interesting episode hallows it or not
this spot is a favored nook of Monument
Place, which should be consecrated to the
meditation of nature. It is a retreat where
in earlier days poetd may have dreamed
! and authors may have built their fancies.
Aside from the norrow path leading from
the arbor an old picture is brounht before
j us vividly as when our childish lips lisped
the lines "dedicated to it. There it is; the
two narrow poles held together at the top
by a shorter ono from which is suspended
a'long thick rope attached to the
"Old oaken bucket, the iron-bound huckot, !
1 he moss covered bucket which faanp in trie well."
Then there is the old sun-dial erectod by I
Col. Moses Shepherd in 1820, which has
pointed to many a death hour Bince the
limt> nlrl jiatlirn' tnnlr his stand nnnn Ifol
summit and marked below the date of;
1S20; marked to the truth, that the
"XoWess foot of
Time
Steak softly by,
An4 trrc We think of
3J*n|iO|j<|
Age drawa nli;!)."
Over a short distance.is the old stone
barn, and winding around the pathway we
come in the direction of Shepherd's Mall.
Scattered promisououuly qbcijt its grounds
are still standing those grand old mqnaftha
of the forest which have bravely detled
the lightning's Hash for half a century or
more. The preening vines wrap tighter
round, and mnnd tfifl trcs jf> fhejr lone
efforts to reach the haughty sijipifijtl,
while the newjy horn evergreens are growing
up txi iiil the places of their mighty
contemporaries when the latter {sfcfljl have
served their time. Lovely vases w;tq tjcajlw?
V.ines, rustic crosses with creeping ivy,
rustlo benches under" "Ihe* shade of forest
trees, all inanimate thing* seen? almost to
feel their importance in lending tfieijr
decoration and ornamentation Jo Monument
Place. Shepherd Halt Is substantially
constructed of solid stone, and stands
on a' level of tho bill sloping down or the
beatifullawn. In Its ornamentation tt.ls
of the Corinthian style of architecture,
though the old stones are almost covered
by the creeping vipes, A flight of
stone steps leads to the entrance hall. Here
wealth is not guided by a spirit of gaudiuess,
buiit jsrather the hand of refinement
that has directed Its dfrporatlofl. flip
frescoes^are handsome.and curious patterns,
and the wainscoting along the high stairway
is hravy anil elegant, \ hrlUlapt
newel light ailds a darling effect to the
tiSCfll', jWUi iia lusiru uuuui uie
rooms on either '.sWft Tfi ^hp Pjjht of the
hall is tie narrow room with itsnigh veiling,
which ever since til? construction of
Shepherd Hall lias been designated as the
family library. Hero a literary taste is
finely displayed in the handsomely boi^nil
worlts of the standard authors and poets.
The booki rest ypon abony pabipets, am}
though some are dim with age they are
valuable Still for their antiquity The high
mantelpiece, go beautifullv and delicately
carved, and the high-backed easy chairs
take one back through several generations
!a the early days of shepherd llall. vrben
its young mistress reigned royally-in the
circles of the gay. The centre piece in the
brightiloorcoveringwas woven from the
finest texture of the J?ersian loom into the
red roses and blue forget-jue-nots, -while
tqe variegated bordering is in perfect harmony
of taste. Opening from tne library
is the chamber that was once opcppled by
onewhoge history has been long sought as
that of a heroine in the early records of
Wheeling. Here the high carved mantel,
with ' its curious antique ornament,
and the long, narrow cupboard, aie
interesting feautures. A handsome screen,
inlaid with peari, obscures the dreary firefront.
From the west window of this room
a lovely scene is presented. Steps lead
irom the wide veranda into the garden,
li ere a fine view of the surrounding country
can be obtained. Far down the streanf
familiarly termed Wheeling creek, the
silvery moon-beams glisten in the distance,
imparting their unspeakable magic to the
pictures of the shadowy past The old
trees on either bank reflect brightly their
images in the rippling stream. In front of
the veranda the thick ivy is growing wild
over a massive rockerv, while the Virginia
creepers are chambering about tho olu locust
trees, as they listen to the whispering
xephere stirring slightly theirdelicateleaves.
Hack once again into the Louso, we next
retrace our steps through the library,
across the main hall into the reception
room. Hero a rich Wilton carpet mutlles
the sound of foot-steps as they sink into its
depths. The high, white mantel is beantifully
carved in mythological designs, and
upon it rest antique pitchers of burnished
gold. Over the center of it hangs a handsome
oil painting of the north view of
Shepherd Ilall. In the small recess in the
! south corner of the room isan ebony cabinet
ornamented with handsome statuary.
Here the scene of the reception room is
brightly reflected in the thick plato glass
mirrors which adorn the cabinet. The
fire-side decorations of brass seem almost
as glittering as tho lovely little table of
burnished gold which rests between.
the long windows almost
hidden beneath the luxurious curtains.
West of the reception parlor Is tho neat
little music room, with everything in appropriate
keeping, nnd leaving this we
wonder up the long stair-war to the grand
ball room. What a crowd of faucies confuse
us here! What scenes of gayety.
what unknown events has it not witnessed!
Since the early days of Shepherd Hall; the
days when Madison, Clay and scores of
distinguished personages g'raced its rooms,
this particular retreat has been the one
where vouth and beauty have mingled in
joyous festivities, when the lovers of Terpsichore
tripped away thehoursand tojk no
note of time. How many eyes hive brightened,
and drooping hearts "been revived by
the sweet whisperings of love sometimes
true, but often false, inspired in the rapturous
strains of music that have tloated
around its walls so many years, until the
gentU Euterpe seems still to haunt the
familiar nooks, and breathe her spirit there.
The ball room is a long narrow one with
high' mantel-pieces at either end, delicately
carved iti Corinthian style by a skillful
band. Upon them refit large and elegant
candelabra of antique design. The high
open fire-places with their old time handirons
seem to speak to us of the times when
our grandmothers in their youthful days
gathered .about the same fire-sides in
all the hopes, the aims, the anticipations
of youth. The long narrow door,
with its carved top, the beautiful _ wainscoting,
the bordering above the thick gilt
paper, all are delicately carved in the
Corinthian architectural style, and would
be a credit to the skillful architects of the
ancients, could they have lived to see their
designs perpetuated as they are at Shepherd
Hull to-day. Just out from the scene
ofgayety is the room still familiarly
termed Henry Clay's, the room occupied
by the illustrious patriot, during his brief
visits to Monument Place. Many other
apartments of Shepherd Hall might still be
visited, without one becoming wearied in
the monotony of sameness, for each bears
its own particular history in point of interest.
Uut this description however, is
amply sufficient for an introduction to the
sumptuous home which Colonel Moses
Shepherd erected for his young wife, early
in the present century. What a world of
events has been chronicled in the one
hundred years, which in their closing
scenes are casting about the thriving inanufflrtnrint'
flilvnf Wliwilino JKo uliuilAiro/.f
Fort Henry."
It was near tbe days, which the last
siege of the Revolution have rendered,
and will serve t? render Fort Henry ever
famous in the history of our country that
one beautiful, haughty, sprightly girl was
a sensation at tbe Fort, and by her during,
reckless courage and indomitable will,
together with tier perfect consciousness
of superior beauty and rare personal
charms made heroes of the weakest men
and spnrred their eirorts in the unflinching
duty td defend bravely Fort
Henry against Indian attacks At
this " time, when the celebration
in honor of these gallant ones
who so courageously defended the old fort,
awakens something of the early patriotism
in each human heart, it is just and fitting
that the memory ofLvdia JJ^srga shouidbe
reverently receioed,and that the noble force
of character which stimulated all her actions
should live again to-day in the hearts
of her fellow-sisters. It is not to speak of
her historical life, her life along tbe border,
her brave, cunning feats, and where
all else bad failed, her daring rescues from |
u?n> a uuuu, iuui una iiiue narrative is |
written. No, these are hut fireside tales,
oft repeated in West Virginia homes. But
in social rank she comes before us a brilliant,
sprightly beauty, bloomiug like the
sweet wild roiSe among the luxuriant foliage
and bright canopied hills of West Vir-1
ginia. Scarcely a century in the Nation's
history has rolled away since then, but the
busy streets with their jostling throne?,
'the"dingy buildings with the marks of decay
upon their walls, tho barren bills whose
ornaments have long been felled by the
woodman's axe, all make difficult
picture in which to imagine Fort
Henry in the last siege of the Revolution.
Lydia Boms hada email,
lithe figure, but a haughty
grace of carriage marked every movement
of it. At sixteen veara of age she a
perfect blond. H"er golden lialr hung in
graceful ringlets about a brow white as polished

in varied expression those Jewels which

The blue eyes grew qrignter,- Jpp aojt

blush, and tho animated jo/ la
his presence tsugbt the youthful
lover every hope. But tho*? happy days
rtew quickly| mono days mftfo bright ftid
sunny by the dream of early love. To this
little rustic beauty it was bliss supreme.
The homespun ffockqnd the little rough
mocpasins, with her woodland love, \yere
far sweeter to this little violet blooming on
the western bfjajrlers than all the gorgeous
display cf oriental magnificance. Yes, she
loved young Shepherd as her own "divinity
in clay," and a world of romance sue
rounded the memory of her first loye. Que
day, it was a bright, lovely morning In the
early wctober, and the red and yellow
leavesof Autumn were scattering their yengated
coverings oyer the forests. The grand
old trees were almost leafless. Here and
there remnants of their rich gaudy atti
hung in fragments from a drooping boug
fighting hard with the rcckless zephira tl
little leaf cluug fast, and the wind swept (
its way. The glistening sun tinted with I
S)ldcn hue the earth's rich carpet, whi
le merry birds sang their chorus to tl
murmuring music of the broolc. At tl
base of the gay pamorama warbled the ri
pling waters of the silvery Ohio; and dri:
Ing picturesquely along with tho gent
tide, her young heart beating time to tl
riplets which played innocently about h
little cauoo sailed Lydla Boggs, the flow
of ItiQ border. It was jubt the morning f
a charming sail, and Lydia having ste|>p<
into her boat, loosened itfromthomoorini
and it moved down the stream. Her ke<
eyo penetrated each recess in the dem
forests as she floated anxiously by. No
and tlien sho would placo her littlo liar
on tho rifle by her side as If in as8Urani
of its faithful trust in times such us tliefl
At last, drawing towards tho Ohio-blior
she pulled up her canoe and -fastened
securely to a huge log; then falling on tli
ground a short distance from it she drean
ed the hours awav; the only living soul I
all that vast wilderness, her meditatioi
were undisturbed. It might not be fi
amiss to suspect young Shepherd's claii
on those captive thoughts during that lot)
reverie in tuo woods. Tho day wore o
and Lvdia heeded not the anxious watcl
ers sighing for her return. Tho sun Wf
setting in a blaze of splendor, aud ha
lowed in gorgeous shapes the glittcrin
peaks, towering high above the river
edge. For into the dim mist of futui
veais the girl's fancy was weaving Strang
images from those sunlit realms. Whe
tho twilight shades were faintly beginnin
| to steal aoout her, and heralded the sombi
hues of night, Lydia arose reluctantly an
walked towards the boat that was to cantier
homeward.

a fumbling sound among tho. leaves, an

Indian stood before her. His dark fori
wore au expression so mean and terribl
that even to the brave heart of a borde
girl it struck unconcealed terror. Herrifl

and she had no earthly means of helj
Trembling in everv nerve, with thoeeirrea
magnificent eyes filled with tears, the tei
rifiedg irl fell uponjier knees before thi
grim savage., Words were useless, einpt,
trities. pleading was unnecessary to hiaur
relenting heart; it was shut anil sealed t
whisperings of humanity. Yes, shesa\
the ropes that were to bind her, the letter
which were to drag her a captive intoai
Indian band, but the undaunted courage
peculiar through all her life, was an incenl
ive to hope. ^Another sound ainon,
the trees and she shrank back froc
the clutches of her savage adversary ii
fear that the whole band had come upoi
her. But her drooping spirits revived a
her name was mentioned in plain Englisl:
spoken froto soma indistinct somewhere
In an instant a straight shot whirled pas
her with lightning rapiditv and ouicke
than thought the Indian fell at her feet;
corpse. A man's rough voice broke into
coarse laugh, "Ila! ha! ha!" he said, point
ing to the bleeding form upon th
grass, "A little sport for this houi
but is your name Lyddy Hogg?
and the tender-hearted girl turn
ed a pitiful look from the nannies
ueau iu we uunv ngure oeside her, wiios
harsh heart softened as the tearful eves me

said, 'Mo speak so lightly of the dead? Yes

"Bless yer heart, child, its Lew Wetzel
It's a long day since I first heerd of purt;
Lyddy Boggs, the daringest and darlinges
gal on the border, and pon my word it i
your very self I've sought them two month

As these compliments were shower*
upon her the color deepened in.Lydia'
cheeks, and the haughty spirit maniteste*
displeasure at the impertinence expressei
in this outburst of enthusiasm. But he
preserver was forgiven, and hesafely rowe
her up the Ohio to the site of Bogga' farn
It wa3 a very pleasant meal'thatevenin
in the unpretending country house, am
when it was ended Moses Shepherd cam
in almost breathless from his protractei
search over hill and dale for his lostLvdii
But it was easy to forgive his truant awee
heart when,he .was once more greeted b
the merry girlish laugh. And so the plea*
ant days and the charming weeks wore 01
the winter passed swiftly, and the earl
spring wa3^Welcomed * once again b
the gladdening sunbeams. It was nigh
and the moon shed a pale, opal lusti
through the same old trees, sending i
those gentle rays secret blessings to the ga
Lint youth who was pledging hi3 troth t
j the fairgirl of his choice. "Lydia, it woul
be but an oft repeated tale with which i
boyhood and in manhood I have wearie
you in repe'ition. It is the same old stor

Shepherd Hall. Colonel Shepherd becan
a large contractor and after the building
the National pike the damages to his va
estate were very great. Accordingly 1
carried his claims to Washington, whe
re he and his devoted wifespent winter after
h; winter. At the National capital Mrs.
le Shepherd reigned rear after vear in courtljr
>n splendor. Always one of the most magla
niflcently attired at the President's levees,
le always a sensation and always a favorite.
10 Resolute, ambitious and Droud, of remark10
able stability of character, she was truly
p. regarded ai one of the wonderful women
ft- of her day. But 'midst all the dissipation
le of an Eastern life, surrounded by all the
io distractions of Washington society, she
cr was ever a faithful and dutiful wife,
er Though forty years of her married life had
or almost gone, she still retained the cherished
*1 affection of her youth, and claimed her
gs husband's heart as in those days of yore.
>n At last there came a day of sadnesa to
mj Shepherd Hall, a time which cast a gloom
w over the gav life of its mistress. Colonel
id 8hepherd died, and over tho gaudy scene
jo of his home the sable folds of mourning
e. wero drawn. But his affairs remained une,
settled long years after his mortal remains
it had been laid to rest in the old church*
ie yard in sight of his beautiful home, and
a- his widow in her business energy kept up
n her annual visits to tho capital. During
is one of these visits she met
ir General Cruger, a representative in
tn Congress from New-York, and a widower,
g He was not one of the least who manifested
u admiration for the fashionable and wealthy
i. widow of Col. Shepherd, and in time must
ib have pressed his suit in a manner that
1- awakened a congenial sympathy in the
g widowed heart, when she consented to bo's
come bis wife. She used laughingly to re e
mark to hor gay acquaintances that she
;i* had caught Gen. Cruger with a silver hook,
n for he was in very moderate circumstances
ig at the time of their marriage. Tis true
o that the admiration she felt for Gen.
d Crujjer was not that strange intangible
y sentiment which still clung about the
memory of ber girlhood's love, but we have
^ reason to suppose she led a bapnv existence
" the few years of their married life. About
j seven years after her second wedding she
,e again became a widow, and lived the ren
maining years of a remarkable life at
e Monument Place, eudeared to her by a thouT
sand memories. The friends of her girl hood
c the gav companions of her youth had all
t passed ont of her life, and yet she linger'
ed. A whole century bad rolled away and
tlie Angel of Death seemed to have for1.
gotten her, or remembered not that she
2 wan mortal. But no, God had called her
y in His own good time, and there dawned a
' day at last when the lamp of a long life
^ "flickered and went out forever" in the
v home she had loved so well. The sun of
g old age was setting in a beautiful tranquila
ity as if heralding the peace beyond the
, grave. All nature about the place seemed

' were weeping under "the morning's dew.
[j Even the restless moaning of the waters
. beneath her window echoed the sad song
j of Death.
s In the midst of all that is sublime and i
r lovely,, in the silence -which shrouds a
death bed. the voice of the dying woman
1 penetrated the little circle about her. It
r was a beautiful resignation that went with
a her, soul in that prayer of child-like con- ,
a fidence, when the "trembling lips were
.. parted and the last breath of life wafted ,
J away with'her words, "Lord Jesus receive
.. my soul." And the noble spirit of Lydia
.? Cruger has passed into eternity. President
after president has passed away, statesmen ,
~ and warriors have heeu honored in their
e time, but the name and fame of Lydia
t Boggs live to-day, and around her memory
e still are thrown Bome shadows of the past.
