iieaa, opHImg" OuT scHeme would I never pay. ( "Would you believe it, mynheer?" said horrified Pieter to his young master, the projectors talk of carrying not only goods, but passengers, at a speed of twelve miles in the hour; some even go so far as to say fifteen. We should do well to sell those shares as soon as possible, mynheer." It is astonishing how soon a man grows accustomed to good fortune. Three months after the decease of Hendrijk van Flewker, Jobst had grown quite familiar with his position as a man of great respectability and standing in the town. But that to which he could not by any means reconcile himself was the notion of wedding Katrina van Robinsonk. He had visited at the house of her father upon several occasions, with the intention of sedately courting the lady's affections. He had always been most warmly. received by the parents, but had been so little encouraged to pursue his suit with the fair Katrina, that he cast aside all thought of the larger dowry this' damsel would re- ceive, and set out to inspecttbe perfections of Margret fin Broun and Hedwig van Jonah. Still, though received by the parents of these maidens with all possible politeness, according to Dutch notions of the commodity some forty years ago, Jobst van Flewker left their mansions as heart- whole as he entered them. Now it was his misfortune, as it has been the fate of many another great man, to be in advance of his age. He had done all in his power to comply with his father's wish; had inspected the three damsels from which he was permitted to select a wife; and had come to the conclusion he could marry none of them. He was sufficiently original to. imagine that in a wife a man has need of a companion. But this was not a popular notion in Holland then. A wife in that day was regarded as a re- spectable kind of upper servant, a housekeeper, who looked after domestic affairs, and kept things together. "But," reasoned Jobst, "a housekeeper is one thing and a wife is another. If a .servant does not suit me, I can discharge her, and hire one that does. If I marry a wife I wed her for life, and cannot get rid of her if I find we do not agree. Again, it is probable that we should have children. I should not like my children to have an ignorant, uneducated mother." You will see into what terribly dangerous hands the merchant's property had fallen. Why, a man like this was positively capable of devoting it to philanthropic purposes-of founding schools, or colleges, or almshouses; or establishing libraries or museums-tasks which, it is well known, are the exclusive employment of ecceiitric and wealthy dolts, ignorant of the value of money! The result of Jobst's wooing, therefore, just amounted to this: being resolved not to espouse either of the three damsels from which he might have made a selection, he determined for the present not to marrry at all. But, alas for the instability of human resolutions. Little more than a year had passed since Jobst's accession to the paternal wealth and dignities, when several additions were made to the players at the theatre in Rotterdam. Amongst the new-comers was a certain Juffrouw Rosalba van Levissen, stated upon the bills to have been engaged, regardless of expense, direct from Paris, having previously played with un- limited applause before every crowned and annointed head in the Old World and the New. Dark as the wolf's throat, or a winter's night, were the eyes of the lovely Rosalba; black and glossy as the sheen upon the raven's wing her jetty brows and hair glistening and white as snow her pearly teeth delicately tinted and fair the bloom upon her rounded cheek as the blush upon the rosebud newly touched with dew—which, I am told, are the stock com- parisons always required to describe with adequate fervour a heroine's charms. For how many of these perfections Rosalba van Levissec was indebted to the hare's foot and the theatrical enameller's skill, we had better not inquire. Of what avail is Art but as the skilful counterfeit of Nature ? Upon the stage Rosalba was sufficiently attractive to call forth a new sensa- tion in that region of the theatre-going Rotterdam burghers' bodies where the heart, anatomically speak- ing, is usually supposed to dwell. You may judge of its influence when I state that it actually drew numbers of the citizens to the theatre in place of the beerhouse for upwards of a week. Tragedy, comedy, drama or pantomime-dancing, singing, and the use of the foils—air came alike to Rosalba. In all she equally shone. Grave and sedate old citizens, whose serious wrinkled faces you would imagine no earthly power could relax into a jolly laugh, roared at the ponderous witticisms of the national drama, to which Rosalba imparted a spright- liness it had never yet worn, until their well-clothed sides shook again, and the benches creaked beneath the unaccustomed load. Then the scene changed. Rosalba was the persecuted heroine, undergoing suffer- mgs and misfortunes terrible and dire. Heavy tears gathered in the eyes of the whilome jolly faces of the audience; choking sensations rose every moment higher and higher in their throats, until the pathos of the actress swelled the tide to bursting great drops rained down the fleshy pending cheeks of well-fed human beings, who would have denied a stiver to a beggar, but whose hearts were reached by the mimic sorrows of Rosalba's skill
