From Charles o Malley the Irish Dragoon it is now about eight May be ten years since that we were ordered to March from Belfast and take up our quarters in Londonderry. We had not been More than a few weeks Alto Gether in Ulster when the order came and As we had been for the preceding two years doing duly in the South and West we concluded that the Island was tolerably the same in All parts. We opened our Campaign in the Maiden City exactly As we had been among Wirt unparalleled Success in Cashe Fermoy Tuam Sec. That is to say we announced Garrison balls and private theatricals offered a cup to be run for in Steeple Chase turned out a four in hand drag with mottled Greys and brought Over two Deal boats to Challenge the no the Lara found the place said we. To be sure they did slow Fellows Liko them must find any place Stu pid. No dinners but they gave no fun but they had none in them selves., in fact we i knew better we understood How the thing was to be done and resolved that As a mine of Rich Ore Lay uncorked it was reserved for us to produce the shining Metal that others piss discerning had failed to discover. Little we knew of the matter never was there a Blunder like ours. Were you Ever a Der said three listeners. Well then let me inform you that the place has its own Peculiar features in the first place All the Large towns in the South and West have besides the country neighbourhood that surrounds them a certain sprinkling of gentle Folk who though with Small fortunes and not much usage of the world Are still a great accession to society and make up the Blank which even in the most thickly peopled country would be sadly fell without them. Now in Derry there is none of this. After the great guns and per great guns Are the Cyl of have nothing but the men engaged in Commerce Sharp Clever shrewd Well informed Fellows they Are deep in flaxseed cunning in molasses and not to be Excell exl in All that pertains to Cofie Sassafras Cinna Mon gum oakum and elephants Teeth. The place is a Rich one and the spirit of Commerce is Felt throughout nothing is cared for nothing is talked of nothing Al Luried to that does not Bear upon this and in if you hav n t a venture in Smyrna Tings Memel Limber dutch dolls or some such com yours Are absolutely nothing land might As Well be at a Ball with a Cork leg or go deaf to the opera. When i be told thus much i Teave you to guess what impression our triumphal entry into the City produced. Instead of the admiring crowds that awaited us elsewhere As we mar Ched gaily into quarters Here we save nothing but grave sober looking and i confess it intelligent looking faces that scrutinized closely r enough but evidently with no great1 approval and less enthusiasm. The men parsed on hurriedly to the count ing houses and wharves the women with Elmast As Little interest peeped at us from the windows and walked away again. Of How we wished for Galway that Para Dise of the infantry that lies West if Shannon. Little we knew As we or dered the band in Lively anticipation of the Gai ties before us to strike up Payne s first that to the ears of the fair in ship Quay Street the rumble of a sugar Hogshead or the Crank Crank of a weighing Crane were More delightful by interrupted Power you Are quite right. Women Are strongly imitative in their tastes. The Lovely very costume in a a of a Raphael no More like the pretty Liverpool dam Sel than Genoa is to Glass Nevis and yet what the Dence have they dear souls with their feat upon a soft car pet and their eyes upon the pages of Scott or Byron to do with All the cot ton or Dimity that Ever was but let us not Repine that very plastic character is our greatest i m not so sure that it always sex said the doctor dubiously a though his own experience pointed otherwise weft go a said the skipper i soon discovered the widow s Cue ment. Who evidently disliked the i she was serious. Now i had conduct Gre Sion in erupting the adjutant s Edall manner of flirtations in my pre Vious life which timid Young ladies Manly Young ladies musical artistic Al. Bless you i knew them All by heart but never before had i to Deal with a serious one and a widow to Boot. The Case was a trying one. For some Story. Well we marched along looking right and left at the pretty there were plenty of them a momentary curiosity Drew to the win Dows but although we smiled and ogled and leered As Only a new4y a weeks it was All very up Hill Rived regiment can smile Ogle or Leer the red hot shot by All that s provoking we might As used to pour in Well have our Blandishments was of no use Here upon the presbyterian meeting House that frowned upon us with its High pitched roof and Roun d windows. Droll people said rather rum cried another to be sore he enlivened the shoulder i turned Aud my ser my to me by pronouncing the vant Tim. This As i have already regiment the worst drilled and appoint Black North by said a third and so we went along to the Barracks some what displeased to think that though the 18th were slow they might have met their match. Disappointed As we undoubtedly Felt at the Little Erith sism that marked our entree we still resolved to per Sist in our original plan and accordingly Early the following morning announced our intention of giving Amateur theatricals. The mayor who called upon our colonel was the first to learn this and received the information with pretty much the same of warm i on other the language of love in which i was by moments proficient availed me not. Comply Meiks and flattery those rare skirmishers one fore the engagement were denied me the and i verily think that a tender squeeze Rny of the hand would have Cost me dismissal. How very slow All though t i As at the end of two months still found myself seated in the is and not a single breach in the fort Ress but to be sure it s the Way have in th.3 North and one must be patient while thus i was in no very sanguine Frame of mind Aslo my prospects in reality my Progress was very considerable having become a member of m phun s congregation. I was grac.i4 ally rising in the estimation of the wid Ted the service and the adjutant the stupid is Dunder head these were his words in had Ever me with. Never thought i a few More Days and it s Litt e i la care for the eighteenth s. It s Little trouble your eyes or left shoulder Forward give me. Set on and widow Boggs and seven Ter. This confounded inspection lasted till half past five in the afternoon so that our mess was delayed a full of four in consequence and it was past seven As we sat Down to dinner. Our faces Hundred a year but no mat kind of looks As the archbishop of and her friends whom my constant Canterbury might be supposed to As attendance at meeting and my very serious Demeanour had so far impress bid that very grave deliberation was sume if requested by a Friend to ride for the Derby. The incredulous expression of the poor Man s face As he turned from one of us to the other evidently canvassing in his mind whether we might not by some special dispensation of Providence be All insane i shall never forget it. His visit was a very Short one whether concluding that we were not quite Safe company or whether our notification was too much for his nerves i know not. We were not to be walked however our plans for gaiety Long planned and conned Over were soon announced in were grim enough As we met at but what will not Good dinner and Good wine do for the ugliest party by eight o clock we began to feel some what More co vividly disposed and before decanters were performing a Quick step round the table in a fashion very exhilarating and very Jovial to look it. No flinching said these Nior major we be had a severe Day let us also have a merry evening by Jove cried we must not leave this to night. Con found the old humbugs and their to whist party throw them Over. Already mentioned was the hour at which Tim was in the habit of taking me Home to quarters we had dined an hour later he took no notice of the circumstance but True to his was behind my chair. A very cursory Glince Al my familiar Ivas quite sufficient to show me that we had some your How changed sides for Tim who was i la habitually the most sober of unkind was on the present exceedingly drunk while i a full hour be fore that consummation was perfectly sober. What d be inquired i with something of severity in my Man Ner. Come said Tim with a Hiccup that set the whole table in a Roar. Mus leave the room this said i feeling or stay at being thus made a butt of for his offences. Leave the room or i la kick you out of it now this let me add in a parenthesis was some what of a boast for Ftp was six feet three and Strong in pvoportion1 and when in liquor fearless As a Tiger. You la kick me out of the room he will you try Only try it that s All Here a new Roar of laughter burst Forth while Tim again placing an enormous Paw upon my Don t whether i should not be made an elder at the next Brevet. If the widow Boggs had not been d very Lovely and wealthy had she not possessed the eyes lips hips angles an a joint re honestly avow that not the charms that Sweet Man m phun s eloquent nor even the flattering distinction in store for me would have induced me to prolong my suit. However i was not going to despair when in sight of land. The was evidently soft ened a longer and the Moat mover. Be sitting a Baste of your i say said Forbes and self when you be got enough. Don t All form and though we made efforts scrupulous the most rigid almost super human in the cause our plays were performed to empty Ben Ches our balls unattended our picnic Vocate for employing time Wisel could not have objected to my system of courtship. It was none of invitations politely declined and in a your ogling hand word All our advances treated with a cold and chilling politeness that plainly said. Well none of you each Day brought some new discomfiture and As we met at mess in Stead of having As heretofore some Prospect of pleasure and amusement to Chat Over it was Only to talk gloomily Over our miserable failures and la ment the dreary quarters that our fates had doomed us to. Some months wore on in this Fash Ion and at will not time began by decrees to forget our woes. Some of us took to late hours and a Randy and water others got sentimental and wrote journals and novels and poetry some acquaintance among the townspeople and Cut into a quiet rubber to pass the evening while another detachment among which i was got up a Little love affair to while away the tedious hours and Ceat the Lazy Sun. I have already said something of my Tase in Beauty now mrs. Boggs was exactly the style of woman i fancied. She was a window she had Black your Jet Black spark Ling dutch doll eyes that Roll about and tremble but mean Bur s had a downcast pen Sive look about them and were fully As melting a pair of orbs As any Blue eyes you Over looked at. Then she had a Short upper lip and Sweet Teeth by Jove they were pearls and she showed them too pretty often. Her figure was Well rounded plump and what the French Call Nette. To Complete All her instep and Ancle were unexceptionable and lastly her joint re was seven Hundred pounds per annul with a trifle of eight thou Sand Morel that the late lamented zing Waist pressing oath swearing by Crasting adoring affairs with an inter change of rings and lockets not a it. It was found confound edly like a controversial meeting at the and i myself had a far greater resemblance to father Tom Maguire than a Gay Lothario. After All when mess time came when the roast beef played and we Semb cd Al dinner and the soup and fish had gone round with two glasses of Sherry in my spirits rallied very Jolly evening consoled me for my fatigues and exertions and supplied me with Energy for the Morrow far let me observe Here that i Only make love before dinner. The evenings Al reserved for mrs. Bog is that my regimental duties required All my time after mess hour in which 1 was perfectly Correct for at six Ife dined at seven i opened the Claret at eight i had uncorked my second Bottje by half past eight i returning p the Sherry and at nine punctual to tie hour i was returning to my quarters on the Back of my servant Tim who had carried me safely for years without a single mistake As the Fox Hunters say. This w6s a Way we had in the the every Man was Ca ried away from sooner Sori e later i was always an Early Riser anal went betimes. Now although i had very Abund ant proof from circumstantial evidence that 1 was nightly removed from the mess room to my bed in the Mode i mentioned it would have puzzled Are sorely to prove the fact in any dire it Way inasmuch As by half past nine the clock chimed Tim entered to to me i was very innocent of All that v going on Aud except a certain a Jade Boggs bequeathed when after four sense of regret at leaving the decanter months of uninterrupted Bliss la left Felt nothing whatever. It so what Mere trifles Are we ruled in our just Derry for another Worl i. When Chance first threw me in the by Way of the fair widow some casual co As my suit Smitn the widow had assured its most favourable footing old Oral Hinds that commanded the incidence of opinion happened to raise me in her estimation and i soon after wards received an invitation to a Small evening party Al her House to which i alone of the regiment was one asked. I shall not weary you with Tho de tails of my intimacy it is enough that i Tell you i fell desperately in love. I strict announced his coming Ovici to in Spect our regiment. Over he came accordingly and to be sure we had a Day of it. We were paraded six mortal hours then we were marching and counter marching moving into line dressing me you be nothing particular to the fair widow this evening you la not Bolt i Hope that he said one near me he must make up for his absence to Morrow for to night we All stand fast said another she s at meeting by this. At Foo teen they before a note for you said the mess waiter presenting me with a Rose co lored three cornered Billet. It was from la Chere Boggs herself and ran thus Deab sir mrm Pun and a few friends Are coining to Tea at my House after meeting perhaps you will Ilso favor us with your company. Yours truly Eliza Boggs what was to be Doie quit the a party just at the jollies moment Exchange Lafitte and red Hermitage for a Soiree of elders presided Over by that Sweet Man or. M Pun. It was too bad but much was in the scale Rhal would the widow say if i declined what would she think i Well knew that the in venetian meant nothing iss than a full dress Parade of me before her friends and that to c Edine was perhaps to forfeit All my Hopes in that Quarter for Ever. Any answer said the Wai Ter. Said i in a half whisper til go Tell the servant i la go. At this moment my tender epistle was subtracted from before me and Ere i could turn round lad made the tour of half the the table. I never perceived the circumstances however and filling my Glass professed my resolve to sit to the last with a mental Reserve to take my departure at the very first Opportunity. Ormond and the pay master quilted the1 room or a moment As if to give orders for a Broil at twelve and now All seemed to Promise a very convivial and Well sustained party for the night. Is that All inquired the major As Ormend entered. All said he and now let us have a bumper a song. Adjutant old boy give us a while the wretch.
