j The Royal Gliost. The Daan of Windsor's Story. Really Windsor Castle seems to be overrun with apparitions. Queen Elizabeth's shade is by no means alone in her glory. The Very Rev. the Dean of Windsor was seen yosterday by a Daily Mail reporter about the apparition whijkk appeared to Lieutenant A. St. Legor Giyn, of the Grenadier Guards (its recorded on the 4tti page of the Echo). The Dean was quite ready, after the inquiries he had personally made, to believe that Mr Giyn had seen something of a supernatural character in the library of the Castle. But he was inclined to doubt, despite tradition, that the appearance was that of so gued a Protestant as Queen Elizabeth, Ho had a stronger belief in the apparition, some years baclc, of another sovereign, King Charles the First, whose spirit is said to visit one of the i houses in the Canon's Close on the opposite side of St. George's Chapel on June 26 each year. Tho last persou who is recorded to have been I Favoured with a Manifestation I on the part of the Royal Martyr was Mrs Boyd- Carpenter, wife of the present Bishop of Kipon, who was between 1682 and 1684 a canon of Windsor, and occupied a house in the cauon's quarters in the lower ward of the Castle. Mrs Doyd-Ciupenter'u story, so the Dean now told it, was to thu effcct that on the night ot Jusie 2ó;;b, in one of these titrue years, her husband was engaged ill c.' iivet-ib.tion in the dining-room with Sir ¡ Walter Pariatt, organist to the Queen, at a. late hour, and that she was iu her bedroom on the first- floor readme;, when she heard steps in the pa>ri>ge approaching hor room, the hasp of whose uoor was lifted, and the tluor slowly opened, revealing—in pliico of the whom his wife t xyecLod to see enter-Iwbody at all. After a brief pausie the door was closed agsun, and the steps were hoard recoilitig along the passage after the most approved ghost story fashion. When Dr. I' oy,i-Ci, rl),n ter arnvod npstairs some half an hour later his wife related the circumstance, and be recollected that the day was June 26dl, and that King Charles was traditionally supposed to 44 walk in that houe on that night. Tho Castlo authorities at Windsor do not appear to have hitherto paid that attention to its distinguished visitauts beyond the S'.yx from which the shades have every right to expect, in the way of recordiug the various apparitions and tabulating the annual dates thereof, which may account, for the infrequeney of their visita- tiulIS in recent times. Nothiog, one imagines, could wound the feeiings of the average Royal I ghost- more deeply than after taking the trouble to come some considerable distance to show itself to find no one about at the time from whom it I might exact the unwilling homage of a" dose of i cold shivurs."
