General Miscellany. DEXiXXiAH. SirThoiniiH Winton and I are follow directotxofa Company which will nev er, I fear, make the fortunes of either ofiin; but it iiyn its way live percent on capital, the salaries of secretary, clerks, and porter,and the guinea-fees of the directors, are always punctually forthcoming. Now, it is a singular fact, that however well oll'u man may he, a munea always lias an attraction for him : and Sir Thomas inton, when in town, is very regular in his attendance at the Hoard'. The charms of general conversation are not unknown at those social busi ness gatherings, and Sir Thomas and Ij often discuss our favorite topics. He is' a sporting character; my hobby is the drama. If 1 open the conversation, J politely ailed an interest in Derby pros pects ;'mention the Middle Park sale of yearlings or inquire tenderly after the baronet's put ridges anil phosunts. If, tin the other hand, it is SirThomas who lakes the lead, he inquires what I think nf liii' last new French adaption put up mv .flu- .London stage. And .-o a certain inthua'y has sprung up between us. "A re you anything of a shot, Mr. Chevers'.'" SirThomas asked me one day early in last July. " 1 am very much out of practice," I replied; "but 1 used to be a fair average performer with the gun some years ago. When I get an odd day now, 1 am apt to be too anxious." "At any rate, vou are fond of sport " Very." Then you must come down to my place, and try your hand will you?" " You are very kind." " And if you like a day or two's hunt ing for a change I will give you a mount." " Thank you ; 1 shall be most liap- py." '" You will not mind coining rather late in the season ? We generally have a housf ful of young people in Novem ber, and J keep some covers unbeaten for the occasion. And if we have a touch of frost, there will be some snipe." I thanked Sir Thomas Winton again and thought no more of the matter, Invitations of that kind are HO very rife after luncheon sherry boillK u heart-expanding fluid and are so often forgotten, that I never expected to hear again of this one. I Was quite sur prised, therefore, when a kind letter from Sir Thomas came in November, re minding me of my promise to come and 'lay with him, and fix the day. Ho I went down to Winton. and found that Sir Thomas had a very good notion j ot lining up a country-house. Jfivcrv bed-room had a dressing room attached with a bath in it, and hot and cold wat- j .or laid on ; and a warm bath before din ner, after violent exercise, is one of the! greatest luxuries in the sybarite's list. I Then the breakfast arrangements were i capital : guests entered tne room at any hour they pleased, rang the bell, anil ordered what they liked, just as if they were at a hotel. But all this, which is common enough in iurge English country-house do not give the idea of comfort I wish toconvey, and which consisted in the ease and smoothness with which all the wheels of the household turned. There was no fuss or bother, or forced hospitality ; but if you wanted any thing, you got it at once, without trouble or deiay. IJutl am anticipating. 1 have only just reached the house at present. Sir Thomas Winton was a widower, and his present family consisted of two daughters, somewhere between eighteen and thirty and son in the Lancers, now at home on leave. There were several guests besidoH myself: Captain Seymour, a brother olllcer of young Winton's, with a suspected desire of forming an other fraternal connection with him; " Paddy" O'Brian of the Foreign Oillce, a sort of social Crichton ; and others. Of the farier visitors, I need only mention one, Ada Dart, for what man of sound mind could notice anv other L'irl when she was in the room? "Well, Captain Seymour could do so, but then ho was infatuated and not of sound mind suf fering from younger Miss Winton on the brain, in fact. It surprisod mo very much to see the beautiful Ada sail into the drawing-room before dinner on tlio evening of my arrival. I had met her at n dinner party and three balls ; I had attended her with grateful humility throughout tho whole of a picnic, and her image rose before me rather more often than I liked. It is very unpleas ant to bo haunted by a face ; to see it whenever you smoke a quiet solitary pipe ; when you lean back and shut your ayes in a railway-carriage ; when you arc trying to get to sleep at night. I really do not know which is worst to have n beautiful woman or a tune rim ing in your head. Of courso I was not in that absurd state which tho ancients stylo " enam ored," and tho moderns "spoony;" I am free from such nn extreme of weakness. But to a certain sort of attraction, or fancy, or admiration. I must nlend mill- ty. Marriage is a state which is consid ered by many hard-headed practical men to have its advantages, and it did occur to me that if over I tested them, it would bo rather pleasant to do so in partnership with Ada Dart. I had no idea that sho was acquainted with the WIntons, and hor unexpected presenee looked quite like a fatality. If ever, when expecting to ilnd yourself in the midst of strangers, you have discov ered a familiar face amongst them, you may remember what a pleasant revul sion It caused in your 'feelings, and how a mere acquaintanceship bore the look of Intimate friendship by the contrast. " What said I, " do vou "know the Win tons?" "Yes." she replied, and looked rather astonished at my tone ; I have known them since 1 was quite a titty tiling ; Sarah Winton is my great ally." Her reply showed an absurdity an undue assumption of intimacy in my ex clamation, which would have been very numbering to rellect upon In the pre sence of most ladies; but Ada Dart was like the sun; it was impossible to feel cold or numb when she was shining on you: and she always shone; 1 do not believe she ever snubbed a poor fellow in her life. She would laugh at him, in deed, on very slight provocation, but those who would have resented ridicule the soonest in any one else, were never oliended at. Ada; no one ever frowned at her, or disliked her, or scolded her, or failc 1 to pet and spoil her since she was HiNt placed in the cradle, 1 believe. And a ridiculous proverb asserts that beauty s only skin deep ! For she was I beautiful even other beauties ncKiiow-1 Imtiroil Hint. All thev could do was to compare her with models of n totally dis tinct style, or to suggest that certain natural 'charms might be due to art. She was nhinm and white as a baby ; each of her large hazel eyes had a dis tinct soul in it; where other mortals possessed knuckles, she had dimples; her ear was a flower, her But 1 dare not dwell on her charms, so, pray, try to imagine them. It is an impossibility; but never mind try. I could not remain long by her side, the room wnsfullof strangers, witliwhom J had now to form acquintanee for the lirst time, even the ladies of the house being unknown to mo. I was eventu ally pared of with a companion who was much interested in the Catholic revival, and evidently thought little of me after making the unfortunate discovery that I did not know what colored stole should be worn in ember-weeks. My dinner was spoiled by a perpetual oread of speaking with levity of things she re verenced ; and if I had not at last hap pily hit upon the safe course of violent ly abusing the Low Church party, I be lieve that J should have an indigestion. The place! coveted at the side of Ada Dart was tilled by Paddy O'Hrian who nan a wonueriui ami envianie power on showing politeness and apparent atten tion to the general company, while real ly attaching himself to one select indi vidual. I had met O'Hrian at the same parties as Ada, but had never noticed any particular attentions on his part. Now, however, he seemed to be estab lisliinga flirtation in form, which was serious; for a man may go very far in a public ball-room with comparative im punity, but trifling in a country-house is a very dilferont matter. Before the evening was over I felt cer tain that I had no chance of "walking over" for tho prize, and also that she was worth winning; for Paddy was not the man to court undowered beauty ; in deed, he could pot alford so romantic a proceeding. When the ladios retired, most of the men repaired to the billiard-room, where cigars and grog were provided ; out tho majority were tired and went to lied early, leaving O'Brian and myself to 11(11 -II II ,UII.( "Well," said lie as soon as we were alone, "I suppose that you and I have been asked down here for the same thing." "O yes; the shooting you mean," I re plied. "Shooting! That's the polite way of paying us. They want us to help tl'em with their private theatricals.' "Oh. they are going to get up private theatricals, are they?'' "To bo sure, or you would never have been asked to Winton Hall, nor I either, faith ! 1 got it all out of Miss Dart." "Who will tell us what to do about scenery, dresses, and all tho little de tails?" said Miss Winton, when the family took the stage-fever badly last summer. "Don't you know some one, papa?" "1 have it !" cried Sir Thomas. "One of our directors is great on the drama: at least he talks of nothing else, and though not a Solomon, that seems to bo Ills specialty." "But is ho presentable?" asked Julia Winton Seymour's girl, you know. "O yes," replied Sir Thomas: "ho has paid up on ills shares, and he aspi rates his and he lias really very lino whiskers !" "Shut up, O'Brian !" said I. "Do not foist oil' your own Impertinences upon the innocent. And what were .vow asked here for?" "To act, of course." If it had not been for my success In Sir .Lucius O' Triggcr at Lady Sock's, I might have gone hang before over I'd have been a guest in this elegant establish ment. Oh, there is no shirking the truth with me, my boy ; nobody does anything lor nothing in this world." Thorn was undoubtedly a sediment of truth at tho bottom of this froth v cvni cism of O' Brian's; for on the following day, tho subject of private theatricals was quietly broached in my presence by the Misses Winton ; and it soon became evident that their heads, and those of the majority of their guests, were run. ning upon nothing olso, so that even if tho drama had not been my particular hobby, my sympathetic nature would have liecn carried away by tho general excitement. My thoatrical tastes had novcr as yet led me to tako part In any performances, and, indeed, ot tho ladies and men form ing tho present company, Ada Dart and O'Brian wero tho only two who wero not about to make their llrst appearance upon any stage. Of course, thso expe rienced members took a prominent lead, besides beimr necessarily drawn togeth er In a contidental way, which was very unpleasant for mo to witness. Jealousy and envy so stirred mv bile that I was Inclined to regret tho good old days of tiuuunig, wneu a migiii navo picKeii a quarrel with my rival, and so had a chance of removing him from my path. But the way in which the odious irish man knocked over the pheasants and rabbits, and a particular snap-shot, 11 rod from the hip, which was fatal to a wood cock, forceu me to own that there was a deep truth in the ingenious assertion so constantly repented in newspaper arti cles, that private combat Is a "cowardly practice." Hut I had my turn of being placed oi rnppors with the entrancing Ada. The line old hall of Winton Park was to be our theatre, and it was my particular province to take the best advantage of the many natural facilities of the place: to arrange about the scenery; to llnu out what were the proper dresses for the plays we were to perform, &c; and Ada Dart beinjr the only person whoso coun sel was of real service in a case of dilli culty, I was perpetually obliged to ap peal to her. Dangerously intoxicating were those conferences, which. 1 con fess, I prolonged needlessly; indeed, I used sometimes to get up a vexatious op position to her wishes, in order to give our discussion a matrimonial llavor. Heigh-ho! The plays selected were Belle ot'J'cnz (nice, iollowed by the farce of Eyes and voe, anu tne insinuation ot parts was a work lor Job or Solomon, most of the company at nist declaring tnctr utter in ability to take the simplest characters, and coming around gradually to demand ing the principal roles. At our llrst general meeting, it really scorned doubt ful whether it would lie possible to cast the mildnst and lightest pieces in the Hritish repertoire ; but at the end of a fortnight, if Othello could have been re written with three Moors, four Desde monias, and two IagoSj our little com pany "had stomach lor them all." When we came to actual trial, however, the powers of each performer got to be estimated by the others at somewhere about their right value, and we got set tled into our places accordingly. I was cast for "Fort csciie," which was too prominent a part for my taste; for besides that, on principle, I very much prefer that other people should amuse me to reversing that proceeding, I hated to have so much to leain by heart. That was another odd effect we all seemed to have gone back to school. At every turn in the house or grounds, you would conic upon a young lady or gen tleman, with knitted brows, "and eyes fixed on either earth of sky, muttering. "I say, Chevers, just hear me my part, into a goon ienow, unpuun rioymour woul say. Then a young lady would make a similar request, and put her hands behind her back while repeating her task, from sheer force of association. Two to ope, if, when playingat billiards, the striker, after using the long rest, said: "Just give me my cue please," some one exclaimed : "Hark, they come!" or, "But more of this anon ;" or, "We will speak further upon the mat ter." Soon matters began to run smoothly, and we had our lirstrchenrsal. By recall-: ingtomind thediU'orentactorsI had seen in my part, and endeavoring to imitate them, I succeeded better than I had an ticipated, and gained considerable ap plause. "But," said O'Brian, "you must shave, you know. The idea of "Fortescue" with those whiskers Is too absurd." Now, my whiskers were black pen dant, silky, and had cost me an inlinity of trouble. It had taken live years of constant care and scientific training to bring them to their present state of per fection. Any one without experience in tho matter would hardly credit the amount of time and labor, not to men tion tho mere money, that I had expen ded upon them. Little soft brushes, delicate combs, bottles of a peculiar oil, more delicate than is ever used for tho head, and called "Brilliantine," were appropriated to their service. When I visited my halrcutter, that artist would deliberate for at least five minutes be fore he could come to a definite conclu sion upon the important point whether he should take the "hends" oil'. When I took my walks abroad at Scarborough, and tho breezes fluttered them over mv shoulders, scornful indeed was the beau ty whose eyes did not light up with ad miration as she passed. Even envious men were unable to withhold their trib-1 ute of praise. "Chevers, my boy," ob served Rivers, who has spent his own fortune, and is looking out for a wife's, "my figure is twenty thousand : but, by gad, if 1 had your face-hair, I'd make it forty !" You may judge my feelings, then, when it was seriously proposed that I should shave. I repudiated the notion with an earnestness which seemed to amuse some of tho company, and they all set to work to argue me'out of mv ob jection to the sacrifice. "They will grow again," said ono Miss Winton. "I am sure Mr. Cliever's face would look better without them," added tho other. "Yes; there is a particularly fine contour, which is completely hidden at present," said O'Brian. "How do you know that, Paddy?" "Contour or not," said I, firmly i "if you cannot put up with a whiskered "Fortescue," some one else must take tho part." And to that resolution I stuck in spite or flattery, persuasion, and satire for three days. And I got it hot, too. at times. 1' lrst one and then another male citi zen was tried in my part, and found wanting. On tho fourth morning after break fast, Ada Dart expressed a wish to learn how to play at billiards. O'Brian was not in the room, and I seized tho oppor tunity of offering my services, which were accepted, Sho had been singular, ly reticent upon the razor question, a circumstance which led mo to hope that huu wouui not nave seen mo saeritico ex pected lrom mo without a pang; but now, while I was engaged in tho too perilous occupation of teaching hor how to make a bridge, she broached the sub ject. "I am sorry, Mr. Chevers," said she, "that you cannot tal.o the part of "Fort escue." You must change with Mr. I O'Brian; that is tho only way in which contixckp on 4th woe.
