He returned in a few moments, saying that his lady would be happy to see me in the parlour, and I accordingly followed him to the door, which he opened. I was, last night, wakened from my sleep, as I lay in my own chamber, and accosted by the person whom I have mentioned. In the distance a group of dairymaids were plying their task, which they accompanied throughout with snatches of Irish songs which, mellowed by the distance, floated not unpleasingly to the ear; and beside them sat or lay, with all the grave importance of conscious protection, six or seven large dogs of various kinds. On arriving upon the uppermost lobby these sounds became fully audible. We know not.

In hell--I'm lost for ever--I have not a chance. This had gone on for nearly a twelve- month, to my infinite annoyance, when one day as I was sitting at some needle-work with my companion Emily, as was my habit, in the parlour, the door opened, and my cousin Edward entered the room. So I thought. However, you may easily suppose that I found nothing in my cousin's communication fully to bear me out in so very decided a conclusion. Moore, Henry Purcell and the Restoration Theatrewhich combines literary and musical insights in a fascinating study. Of all this I have a painfully vivid recollection, and particularly of the little annoyances inflicted upon me by the dull and coarse jokes of the wits and wags who abound in all such places, and upon all such occasions.

After some very fine complimentary flourishes upon my beauty and perfections, as also upon the antiquity and high reputation of our family, it went on to make a formal proposal of marriage, to be communicated or not to me at present, as my mother should deem expedient; and the letter wound up by a request that the writer might be permitted, upon our return to Ashtown House, which was soon to take place, as the spring was now tolerably advanced, to visit us for a few days, in case his suit was approved. She sat up in the bed, and looked fearfully around the room, which was imperfectly lighted by a single candle burning dimly, as if she almost expected to see the reality of her dreadful vision lurking in some corner of the chamber. Sir Robert's habits, however, underwent no consequent change; he continued regularly to frequent the race meetings, without mixing at all in the convivialities of the gentry, and immediately afterwards to relapse into the secluded monotony of his ordinary life. She hurried rapidly through the long narrow street which forms the great thoroughfare of the town.

I set forth with my noble companion, followed by the regrets of some, and by the envy of Purcell papers. book though God knows I little deserved the latter.

Connell, however, previously to entering the room, had announced his determination to take nothing more than the strictest temperance would warrant. Through the midst of this woodland there runs a deep gully or glen, where the stillness of the scene is broken in upon by the brawling of a mountain-stream, which, however, in the winter season, swells into a rapid and formidable torrent.

Need an original paper? This room looked out upon an extensive level covered with the softest green sward, and irregularly bounded by the wild wood I have before mentioned, through the leafy arcade formed by whose boughs and trunks the level beams of the setting sun were pouring.

I cannot find words to thank you for the letter as I would wish, or for all your kindness. Born in Dublin on the 28th of August,he did not begin to speak until he was more than two years of age; but when he had once started, the boy showed an unusual aptitude in acquiring fresh words, and using them correctly.

The comparative want of success of these novels seems to have deterred Le Fanu from using his pen, except as a press writer, untilwhen the 'House by the Churchyard' was published, and was soon followed by 'Uncle Silas' and his five other well-known novels.

You have done better than we could have hoped, at least so very soon. He afterwards served as a major of dragoons under Marlborough. The hall-door was now thrown open, and we all stepped forth to greet our visitors. Purcell began the new trend in with the opera Dido and Aeneas, which contains the moving lament "When I am laid in earth.

This is his portrait: 'A face like marble, with a fearful monumental look, and for an old man, singularly vivid, strange eyes, the singularity of which rather grew upon me as I looked; for his eyebrows were still black, though his hair descended from his temples in long locks of the purest silver and fine as silk, nearly to his shoulders.

Corney, pronounced Kurny, is just as much used in the South, as the short name for Cornelius. Often after a serious piece a short farce was also given; and at the close of the play the actors, on their knees, recited an address to the king or queen.

He then spoke nearly as follows: 'I came in drunk on Friday night last, and got to my bed here; I don't remember how. The situation of this gate also, which we have endeavoured to describe, opening upon a narrow ledge of rock which overhangs a perilous cliff, rendered it at all times, but particularly at night, a dangerous entrance.

I heard Lord Glenfallen's step upon the stairs, and I instantly ran out; as I passed him I perceived that he was deadly pale, and just caught the words: 'I hope that demon has not hurt you?

To return to the year Who has not felt all this at one time or other? There was something unpleasant, too, in the circumstance that he never raised his eyes to meet those of another; this fact was often cited as a proof of his being something not quite right, and said to result not from the timidity which is supposed in most cases to induce this habit, but from a consciousness that his eye possessed a power which, if exhibited, would betray a supernatural origin.

Good-night, my love. He had directed a domestic to inform me that he should not be back until the next day. One day, sometime after his perfect restoration to health, I was surprised on ascending the stairs, for the purpose of visiting this man, to find him busily employed in nailing down some planks upon the landing-place, through which, at the commencement of his mysterious vision, it seemed to him that he had sunk.

I have dismissed your Irish maid, and secured a French one to wait upon you--a step rendered necessary by my proposing shortly to visit the Continent, with all my family.
