So sung Hamish, tho son of the last long line of minstrele who, with harp and voice, had recorded the triumphs f-tho.ouse oft 1 Netterville, or mourned over the death or i sorrow of its chieftains. For, in spite of e the law by which it was strictly forbidden, the English of the Pale had persisted in the i national custom of keeping a hard or min- I atrel-whose office was always, or almost I always, hereditary-attached to their house- f holds ; and, in its palmy dlays of power, v the family of Nettervlle was far oo jealous I of its own impoitance not to have been a Salways provided with a similar appendage. f Its last recognized minstrel had faillen, how- t --ever in the same battle which had deprived a Nellie of her father, and, Hamish being then b etoo young to take up his father's ofice, the harp had, ever since, literally, as well as fig- I Suratively, hung nuto and ulnstrung in the halls of Nettorville. But grief and indigna tion over its utter ruin had unlocked at last -e the tide of poetry and song, ever ready to ti flow over in the Celtic breast, and Hamiesh t felt himself changed into a bard upon the a spot. Forgetting the presence of the Eg- r lish soldiers, or, more probably, exulting-in y the knowledge that they did not understand e the-language in which he gave expression to o his feelings, hlie stepped out into the midst o of -the people, pouring forth his lainenta- h tions, stmanza after stanza, with all the readi- o ness and fire of a born improrisatore; and b when at last he paused, more for want of e' breath than want of matter, the keeners Ith took up the tale, and told, in their wild, j1 wailing chant, of the goodness and gremat- t ness, the glory and honor of their-departed hi chieftain and his heiress, precisely as they ti would have done had the twain over whom N they were latnenting iere that very day bi deposited in their graves. Up to this mo- te ment, Mrs. Netterville had preserved, in a ci marvelous degree, that statue-like calmness di of outward bearing which hid, and even at hI times belied, the workings of a heart full of at generous emotions; but the wild wailing of di the keeners broke down the artificial re- N straint she had pitt upon iher conduct, andt, i unable to listen quietly to what seemed to hi her ears a positive prophecy of death to her t beloved ones, she hastily re-entered the house and retreated to her own apartment. be This was a small, dark chamber, which, in u i happier times, had been set apart as a qulict I retreat for prayer and househlold Ilrposcs, lo but which now was the only one the ntis- nt tress of the house could call her own-the ro soldiers having, that very morning, taken al possession of all the others devoting sone di of them to their own particular accommoda- or tion, and locking up the others. It was, in hi fact, as a very singular and especial favor nc and assome return for the kindness she had nc shown in nursing one of their number, who bf had been taken suddenl -ill; on the night of be their arrival that the use even of this small so chamber had been allowed her; for it was th not the custom of Cromwell's army to deal se tob gently by the vanquished, and many of us the " transplanted," as hign-born and edu- ty cated as she was, had been compelled, in wi similar circumstances, to retire to the outer be offices of their own abode, while the rough soldiery who displaced them installed themi- at selves in the luxurious apartments of the to interior. ed Hidden from all curious eyes in this dark ini retriat,, Mrs. Netterville yielded at last to re the cry of her weak human heart, an , flinging herself face downward on the floor, gave way to a passion of grief,' which was all the more telvible that it was absolutely tearless. One or two of te few remlaining Nc . The aistrss, God h her!

Not having set up in that line shelf, was canot, of course, attempt to med in the matter." But though Hamish had spoken roughly, his heart was very sore, for ailithat, over IP the sorrows of his lonely mistress. ..oHe waited until Cithleewhad vanished in rrili'iff and then, going quietly to the study door, knocked softly for admission. i But Mrs. Netterville gave no sign, and, 1 after knocking two or thase times in vain, 1 g he opened the door gently, and looked in. t The roonm wns naturally a gloomy one, ` f being paneled in ldack oak;L hnIiHamish s r felt as if it never eould have looked before C f so gloomy as it did that moment. Half t , stndy, haif oratory as it was, Mrs. Netter e vill had spent here many it long hour of 1 - lonely and impassioned prayer, what time a t her husband and T1ir father-in-law were fighting the battles of their royal and most t ungrateful master. A tall crucifix, carved, a a like the rest of the-furniture, lo black oak, td 1 stood, therefore, on a sortof prie-dieu at the ti farther end- of the room, and near it was a R table, arranged in desk-fashion, at which to I she had been in the habit of transacting the f4 i business of her household. 11 3 Room and prle-dies, crucifix and table- 8 Hamish had them all by heart already. Here, in his baby days, he bad ilbet n.sed to come, when he and his little foster-sister v -were wearied with their'own play, to sit at 1 tile feet of Mrs. Netterviller and listen to the 1i StaJlea_hich she had invented for their al amusement. Here, as time went on, sepa- ti rating Nellie outwardly from his society, ti yet leaving her as near to him in heart as s1 ever, he had been wont to bring his morning sl offerings of fish from the running stream, hý or bunches of purple heather from-the rocks. in Here he had come for news of the war, and o0 of the master, on that very day which 11 brought tidings-of his death;- and here, too, th even while he tried to comfort Nellie, who li1 had flung herself down in her childish misery tl just on the spot where her mother lay pros- he trate now,-he had wondered, and, young as re lie was, had in partat least, comprehended P1 the marvelous self-forgetfulness of Mrs. co Netterville, who, in the midst of her own I bereavement, had yet found heart and voice de to comfort her aged father-in-law inrd her th child, as if the blow which had struck them of down had not fallen with three-fold force on th her own head. In the darkness of the room, fo and the coq of his own thoughts, he we did not?, ver, at first perceive Mrs. al Netterville er lowly posture, and glanced instinctively toward the prie-dicen, wlere he had so often before seen her take refuge in san the hour of trial. pr But she was not there, and a. thrill of ter- sol ror ran through his frame when ihe at last G discovered her, face downward, on the floor, tei her widow's coif flung far away, and her to long locks. streaked-by the hand of grief, we not tiule-abundantly with gray, streamling tie round her in a disorder which struck Hlamnish sci all the more forcibly, that it was in such sc' direct contrast to the natural habits -of mc order and propriety she had brought with Ai her from her English home. -I'here she lay, not weeping-en pisery as hers knows nothing of the re lif tears-not weeping, i but crushed and powerless, as if her very body had proved unequal to the weight of we sorrow-put upon it, and had fallen beneath ted the burden. seemed, indeed, not in a is I swoon, but . d and stupefied, an-d quite line unconscious tlihashe was not alone.

On emerging" from it, r we, we came upon the ruins of an ancient chapel a sh surrounded by .a small graveyard.

On 1I r of the morniug to wh !ch I have just referred, after I wing waiting twenty minutes in the rain, I was glad to Afnd a vacant place inside one of the numerous t cdi- eity 'buses that passed the end of the street in i which my rooms were situated. After having a slty squeezed into my place, sad been well scowled a nd at for my pains, I proceeded to take stock of a my coaulmnious in misery. We wereeleven d men and one woman. All of us men were more 1 and or lass moist, and each of us had a very damp u it, ambrella. We hadl all put on our severe business ii air, and we were all more or less sunpiclonus of a ethe company in which we found ourselves; and, f atl in consequence, perhaps, of the badness of a t the weather, we were all nmore than usually rich inclined to bully the conductor, and to poke e him viciously in the ribs with the fetmles one lat tItlh inside?
