NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE,

THE MONKBOURNE MYSTERY.

BY RICHARD JEFFERIES.

Those who doubt the existence of those subtle, human influences which fine organisations have ever believed in, do not question the exhilarating effect of the soft yet cool air, the warm sun, the bright green grass, studded with yellow and white flowers of a May morning. Why, then, if the emanations from matter can cause a delicious languor to pervade the frame, should not that wonderful electrical machine, the human body, possess at least equal powers ?

“ The mavis sang, and would not cease,
Sitting upon

the

spray ;
So loud, he wakened Robin Hood

In greenwood where he lay," The great sud, already high in the heavens, poured out a flood of love upon the teeming earth. It was a May morning—a true May morning : who can say more? But often how incongruous are the human accompaniments to the lovely scenes of nature !

“ Church !” said Sir Anthony Tracy, in his thin, jerky tones. “ There's the church, and there's the d--d imitation. Church, burial, cremation- who says there's anything queer in cremation ? I say, Vicar, what's your opinion ?"

“The practice of the Church has always been to bury the dead,” replied the gentle voice of the clergyman by his side-a voice full and yet soft,-an index of his kind and benevolent nature. But the restless baronet’s thoughts had jumped on again by this time.

Putrefaction, Mr. Vicar !- why, I tell you, it's horrid ! Smelt it myself too much in the Chinese war ; marched up the YingYang-Yung, you know, -see it in the maps; dead bodies all the way. By-the-bye, extraordinary thing happened there—chance or providence-we'll discuss that presently. I had a splendid diamond ring—one big stone, gave two hundred guineas for it, 'pon honour. January.-TOL. IX., NO. XLIX.
