Elizabeth Gaskell isn't the most consistent of Victorian writers, sometimes forgetting a character's accent or dialect partway through the text, but she does tell a good story. The most interesting piece in this collection to my mind is "Lois the Witch," about the Salem Witch Trials; sort of like a woman's eye view of Hawthorne.
