r- THE COLLEEN BAWN. -0- CHAPTER YUL—{Continued.) --()-- Hjer lover delayed answering, not. because fee; shared the difficulty of Mr Creagh, but tk4 he was WTapt in admiration of the draw- ing. It was an interesting landscape, and fiilshed with more taste and fineness of touch J.han are usually to be traced in the effiesrts of accoiriplished young ladies. The f«eebgraunrf of the picture exhibited a, grassy sfafte, which formed a kind of peninsula in a ■Wgnifioent sheet of water, runiqing 'a little tii left, and terminating at what artists «dWtt ti e middle distance in a gracefully WSbided point. The- remains of an old castle i^peared amoag; the • trees, the gloom ard •efes-ty of which were exhibited' in a strtk- ■^degree., by ai brilliant effect of sunshine car. Che water and; on the green slope above ,-t It, •Kultioned Two small islands, affording an anchorage to some open); boats, broke the eKjpanse of water on the right; while the STCYT'IH bay, formted by the point before de- scaded, on the left, was graced:, by the igpfes of fishermen in the act of casting; their ndfa. The waters were oounded, in the: dis- tanQe by a range of blue hills, scene of which projected into rocky at wooded headlands, vaide the whole was softened by that deep J stvi rich blue tint which is peculiar to the rnatst atmosphere of tOO climate; and, by im- parting at once distinctness and softness to iim landscape, is fax better adapted: to the sdRjes of rural solitude that even the lonely gpfendour of a Tuscan sun. Tballylin echoed Mr. Cregan,, who had walked over to look at the drawing. 1Tis as like BallyMn as Roorng Hall is to, Dublin aiiUe. 'Tis Castle Chiitfe, and right well tottched off, too, by jingo.' To this ob- sespration he added, in language which the albe.r.ed customs of society prevent our copy- ing 'verbatim/ that he wished the spiritual £ (3 of the human race might lay hold of him, if k were not an admirable resemblance. Mr. Creagh had his cnvn. reasons for not taESog offence at any resentment that was inged by his good' friend and frequent hoefc, Ms, Cregan, but he did not forget the differ- ence of opinion that was hazarded by his .ynftng acquaintance- To the fait artists ca^Kery, he replied with a bow, and an aic of ofetfashioned politeness, that "'frequ=Ay as hq had the honour of visiting Castle Ciwte. t* was yet unfamiliar with the scenery* foe. | his thoughts on approaching it were exclus- ivity occupied by one object." «'"And even though they were at liberty," ai^fed Kyrle, "it is more than probable Mr C^pigh has never seen Castle Cfinfe at tfcs pgiot of view, so that it corfd hardly he ex- to remain on his recollection." Then cs&Bng closer to Anne, are spenking in a •tester tone of voice, he said, "This is the very scene of which I told you Hardness Cregan was so enthusiastic an admirer. You drawn it dace ?" Miss Chute answered in the aifirrftativ?, add turned) quickly away, replaced the sketch iflT her portfolio. Then, turning to Creagh, sftp told him that he would be very shordy qualified to give an opinion as to the ff&dnty dPher design, for they wouJd, pass the spof nf. question, on their way to the, little race- course. There was some further conversa- tion, not worth detailing, on the subjocf of Wardress Cragan's saloter—and some!,M;i- ftures were haizaxded concerning tfce ca ie n the blue DMK, none of wkitd*, how- esttSr, threw any certain light upor. t&C •artery,
