THE P BESS.
CINCINNATI, FRIDAY. AsRII. 8. [From Chambers' Journal.] THE UNHIRED SERVANT. [CONTINUED.] Those were encouraging details for two la dies, fresh from London oity, to hear regarding the old eountrjr-nouse m wbton they were bound to lire at least two years. My mother had a deal of strong tense, however, and I think she taught me some of it. We had in common a good life, a good oonsolenee, and a tolerable eduoation. There are no better ram parts against superstitions fears, and they stood us in good stead, notwithstanding the reputa tion of the place, the strange echoes whioh the large, empty house gave baok to every sound, the wonderful howling of the wind in lis turret chimneys, and the shadows cast by its old treos. Vi'e never got thoroughly frightened, nor met with any thing out of the common oourse, ex cept the transaction I am about to relate. When Lord Yarmouth's lawyer admitted that the halt was solitary, he certainly did not overstep the truth. There was not a house within sight of it but the gardener's cottage, whioh was a good quarter of a mile off; yet neither thoft nor robbery had been Attempted; partly because it was generally known that thore was nothing but old furniture in the mansion his lordship having removed his plate and all portable goods of value; and partly owing to the popular belief in tho re turning Ilartwells. That artiole of faith stood sadly in our way with the before-mentioned maid. No woman of any age would consent to sleep at the hall. We were obliged to dis pense with their sorriccs early in the evening, thnt they might get home before it grew dark, and could not expect them earlier than about twelve next day. I employ the plural number, because in our first season we had on an aver ago a new servant every fortnight. Some were so desporatoly dirty that they oould not be re tained on any terms; others broke every thing that came in their way. One almost sot the place on fire; a second aooommodated herself with my mother's tabinet gown, and wont to ehuroh in it on a wet Sunday; a third dropped our entire stock of china on the stone floor of the kitchen, and fled home, deolaring she had seen three of the Hartwells looking in at the window. After that tale was made publio, we could get no servant at all. The want would not have been great had ourselves only been concerned; I couU have done all our household work. Ralph Fairbrother supplied us with all manner of provisions, aocording to contract; but the hall and its furniture were to be kept in oriler, and that was a task beyond our united strength.' In this strait, my mother thought of apply ing to an acquaintance of ours in Norwich, one of the few with whom we correspond in spite of uitered fortunes. She was a merchant's wife, a notable house-keepor, and a most worthy woman. Her reply was decidedly satisfactory. She knew a housemaid, steady, honest, indus trious, and not afraid of a solitary place. If my mother and I would only oome to Norwich, spend a day with her and see the girl, she might go back with us to the hall, In case we thought her suitable. Mrs. Turner's invitation was kind, and the chance of seeing civilized life, though but for a day, was too good to be missed. We went to the old capital of Nor folkshire in a spring-cart, the only vehiole ob tainable. My mother had a great ohat about old times ; I saw the newest fashions ; the maid was seen and arranged with, but there were unexpected difficulties in the way of her imme diate coming. The girl looked strong, active, and not too young; she had a good-humored faoe, professed no fear of ghosts, and had a sort of acquaintance with Fenham Hall; her granamotnor, motner, ana two aunts having been housemaids there in regular succession. The no-popery cry was then loud, in consequence of the Catholic Emancipation Bill ; but my mother had no dread of the Jesuits, and showed no unwillingness to engage Sally Steen, though site was a sound believer in the old faith, and retired, as it were, to servioe in the convent of the Sisters of Mercy, whenever sho was out of place. X he lady suporior was somehow related to Sally, on the mother's side, where, it seems, there was high and ancient blood to boast; but though the Catholioism and the convent bod do terrors for us, we were disappointed in our hope of bringing homo a useful servant. Sallv's brother was to be marriod that day week; she bad promised to be at the wedding; beside her things wore to be put in ordor. In short, Sally could not oome for at least eight days. Still, there was the prospect of a maid at lust. Mrs. Turner gave her the highest character by the way, she had onoe served our friend for six months and we went home, after setting with Sally to come by the Fenham's carrier's wagon, ana enter on ner auues at me nail on Monday week. The evening in which she was expeoted, found us talking and knitting by the fire. The night had fallen, for it was about the middle of December; but the weather had been elearand frosty for some days, and we could see the moonlight silvering our windows, over which the curtains had not boen drawn, as my mother said the blaze would cheer Salh 's heart, ouming up the lonely park, and guide her to our corner of the mansion. We wero oomforting ourselves with the rubbing-up the fire-irons, stoves and largo mahogany tables should get from her vigorous arms, as also on the peace and pleasure we should have with a good humored, trustworthy servant for the rest of the winter. Our toa-table was spread, and our tea-kettle singing, to welcome Sally when sho came in, oold aud tired, from her journey, in the wagon. There it was at last; wo heard tho heavy wheels roll slowly up the carriage-road; . tho carrier knew how to open the park gate, luckily, for no keeper had lived at the lodge fur years. I went out with a lantern, and there they were trusty Thomas, the carrier, with all manner of parcels for us and the Fair brothers; Sally, with her gray cloak and hood drawn over her bonnet, her large deal-box, and a bundle under ber arm. Thomson was in a hurry with goods for the village inn-keeper; the box, etc, had to be got in quickly. Sally was some time getting herself in ordor to pay her respects to my mother; but at length in sho oaino. There were two oandles and a bright fire, and all their light was requisite to make us credit our own eyes. Instead of the ruddy, robust, good-natured looking young woman under thirty, with whom we had talked at Norwich, there walked into the parlor, very deliberately, a woman whote age I oould not toll, but she was not young, tall, larged-boned and thin to the point of reminding one of a skeleton. She had on a coarse, gray gown, of plain stuff, and a muslin oap plaited closely round her la;e, whioh might have been hand some once, for the features were fiaely cut and regular, but it was long and thin beyond ex pression: there was no color, about it but a fctreak or two of intensely, black hair straggling on the forehead, which, by the way, was broad and low, and a fixed corpse-like expression, suoh us I remembered to have seen in the face of one of the exiled monks of La Trappe at SpiUU fiolds. .
