Chapter in. The interview Dona Inez was of an illustrious family. Her father Don attributing necessarily to Feliciano this insulting multiplication of the same Madrigal and furious at having been for so Long a time duped by the semblance of love by a simple student she resolved to avenge herself. Her first thought was to treat the insult with scorn and marry the mar Lier rec Corid was to be completely convinced through Iii her Rocco and was to tie completely convinced Taro Uniti Juan manc Raof i Oledo had been an Eui Bassauer at \ Emce the debit of the guilty person and to see How far and in Germany then Viceroy of few Spain and after Assurance. After which she would cause Iii Render his daughter worthy of the great name a he bore. She was his Only child and he i sized that she Sii Ould be the Pride and Joy of his old age. Broken Down by years and fatigue Don Juan de Moncera died just As he would have reaped the fruit of his cares and his instructions. At this period Dona Inez was nearly twelve years of age. She was already very pretty and gifted above All with that charming Grace that would some years later make her one of the most fascinating persons in Madrid. Confided by the last wishes of her father to the care of the Des Ursine the oldest female Friend of Don Mancera she left the Palace of her family to inhabit an apartment which Madame de Bracciano then in the height of her influence had reserved for her at the escorial. At tiie time when her Friend was disgraced Dona Inez wished to follow into , but Madame Des Ursine opposed it. Dona Inez was to be attached to the household of the new Queen Elizabeth of Parma and Madame Des Ursin did not wish her to renounce the Brilliant future that opened before her. And then in the hostile condition in which her fall had thrown her she was very Happy to have at the court a faithful correspondent and one the More devoted because she believed that in serving the Princess she was following the dictates of duly. Dona Inez had known Feliciano for four years. An event both tragic and singular had made them acquainted. For eighteen months the future Friend of Domingo had inhabited Salamanca when he Learned the expected arrival in that City of Madame Des Ursine. Desirous As every one else of seeing this celebrated and All powerful woman and knowing that she would make her entry in state through one of the principal Gates in the City above which they had erected a magnificent triumphal Arch Deciliano had repaired to this place wit i his friends. At the moment he arrived a frightful tumult reigned in the crowd. Detached i the court ? without a regard or conduct efface for ice to rendered her in pronouncing these words Quot i will unmask him Quot Dona Inez turned about. She perceived there a Young Man who dressed like a wine merchant his Large coarse hat in his hand was contemplating her silence and not recollecting thai she had advised the hostess to disguise Feliciano she interrogated him abruptly. She mistook him for a labourer of the Palace and could not conceive How he had dared to venture into her apartments. But soon recognizing the Bachelor she said in a Quick and disdainful voice Quot a is it you Senor you May this reception was very differed from what Feliciano had hoped. It disconcerted him and he dared not move. Surprise fastened him in his place. Quot did you write me this letter Quot resumed Dona Inez showing it to him at the same Timo. Fearing something in consequence of the evident displeasure of Dona Inez and not being Able to imagine what it could be after the account his hostess had Given Hirn and after the interview Dona Inez had granted Feliciano dared not answer. Dona Inez repeated her question. It was necessary for him to decide. Quot yes see Orita Quot said he casting Down his eyes. Quot did you intend it for me 1&Quot "ye., Quot for me alone Quot Quot for you Quot what a deceiver Quot murmured the Young Damsel beating the floor with her foot. Quot and yet How Calm he is How self possessed Quot and she continued controlling herself As Well As she was Able Quot before coming As Yon did every Day to Salute me at my departure from Buen Retiro did you not know any one at the Gilt hat and Boot. The business men in the Quot journal Bot dings Quot seem de-tennine4 too a Ead of All others in tiie i. Look in at shakes and in at the next door at Georges where every thing in their respective branches of business May be found. See their advertisements in to Day s paper. The whigs have carried the elections in Maryland Delaware and Connecticut. The House of representatives in Maine now stands 47 whig 45 lock and several districts to be heard from. The legislature of Maryland stands 13 whig and 8 Locos in the Senate and 53 whig and 28 Loco in the House of delegates. We shall know the result in Ohio and Pennsylvania in a few Days. Ohio have heard Only from a few townships in Montgomery county which show a democratic gain on last year and from a portion of Franklin showing a democratic gain of two Hundred and fifty in that county. The apprehensions expressed a few Days ago As to the defect of or. Bebb s advocacy of a repeal of the Black Laws we still believe will be realized. $2,246,047 50 this amount is Between eight Aud nine thousand dollars less than the amount reported by gov. Bigger we believe this amount though arrived at As above stated will approximate very closely to the entire school fund of our state. We Hope however to see the time and we believe we shall within three years that we can Tell definitely the amount of the school fund the number of scholars in the state the number of schoolhouses their condition and be Able to add to this catalogue a Large number of teachers Normal school a state education society and an awaken revolutionized state to the great and important subject of common school education. The anti renters of new York adopted John Yong the whig candidate for governor and Gardiner the democratic candidate for Lieut. Governor. Should the whigs be True they will beat Silas Wright. There Are a few pretended whigs in the City of new York who have Ever been a curse to the party and we fear will now defeat it by opposing Yong. Should the new York courier and enquirer persist in its opposition to Yong it should not be regarded hereafter As a whig paper. The sooner Sudi whig leave us the better. The big 8 on the the horns succeeded with the assistance of crowds of their customers on yesterday in raising the big 8 in front of their cheap store. Their goods Are still arriving and were it not that we know them to be so constantly engaged in waiting on purchaser we would in Onn the marshal of the manner in which their boxes Are piled up on the Side walk. Thei store is adjoining the j00rnal buildings Quot which accounts for the manner in which they do up business it is a Good neighbourhood. For the state journal. Human magnetism. Or. Editor a the visit of or. Gaylor the lecturer on animal magnetism to this place has considerable interest among its inhabitants. I have been myself rather sceptical on the subject of that novel science but was led by curiosity to visit the court House last saturday evening and confess that if i have not been absolutely converted into an implicit believer yet i am nearly so As to be induced to continue Ray observations. His remarks were not Only forcible but his practical experiments illustrative of them truly astonishing. A number of persons took seats for the purpose of being magnetized several of them were More or less influenced but none were fully magnetized except two one or. H. Of this place a gentleman in whom every one places entire Confidence a the other a Little girl a daughter of or. Gaston s. Or. Gayler first went through a series of physical experiments upon or. H. Such As fastening his feet to the floor his hand on his head and depriving him of the Power of leaving his seat. In All of or. G. Succeeded perfectly and or. H. Confessed himself deprived of the Power he usually Over his limbs. This i think was done to the entire satisfaction of most of those present. But the most interesting and convincing As Well As the most Beautiful experiments i Ever saw were performed on the Little girl. Or. G. Requested the audience to select a committee to superintend the experiments and report As to the Success of the same. A committee of five was accordingly selected composed of some of the most respectable and influential citizens of the town. Or. G. Then St item that in giving such experiments As he intended to give he was departing from the course he had Laid out but that he was anxious to give every one an Opportunity of becoming convinced of the truth of the science. After a few very pretty experiments the operator was requested by gov. Whitcomb to deprive her of sight by volition solely without letting the subject know what his intentions were. This was done so Felt actually that she Vas unable to see anything except the operator himself. He then in the same manner deprived her of her hearing and her memory so that she did not know her father. He then took away her natural vision and gave her that of two Young friends seated upon a Cloud Over the setting Sun caused her to Converse with them and finally brought them from the Cloud into the room where she held a conversation with Triem. He also performed a number of other equally striking and interesting experiments. Or. G s. Object in magnetizing this latter subject was stated to be for the purpose of curing her of a ners Ous affection which her parents say he has almost entirely succeeded in doing. Since or. G. Has been in the place i am informed that he has cured numerous cases of nervous affection head ache tooth ache &,c., and is at present operating on a Well known citizen of the place for palsy with every Prospect of Success. On the whole or. Editor i think it but Justice to say that the science professed by this gentleman is Well worthy of Public encouragement and that who Ever will attend to witness his operations with a dispassionate and unprejudiced mind will be forced to make the same acknowledgement. Civis. By the wind or the pressure of the crowd a Plank had fallen from the scaffolding upon the group in the midst of which Vas the Princess striking a mule on the head. The lady who wrote this Mulo was Young and self possessed and appeared to be a Good horseman but her obstinate beast was frightened and reared in a manner that would have a horsed the most intrepid Cavalier. There seemed to be no doubt but that he would throw his Light Burden who once on the ground would be trampled under tie feet of the crowd. Quot no one. Quot to lady Quot Quot not Quot not even the Queen our gracious Sovereign Quot Quot not even the there was silence. Dona Inez gazed earnestly at the student. She seemed to be asking herself if she had not been dreaming if tills Young Man who seemed so Frank and honest could have so much cunning in Iii soul. She almost but at that instant a Young student darted Forward made i doubted her memory but she could not prevent herself Way through the crowd then with both his hands More i from remembering in the evening what she had read in the courageous than Strong seizing hold of the Ricile he forced 1 morning.

Feliciano was poor but he was also around and words of he did not at finst reply to the question. He had not been Quot do you believe that i read it with More attention than Quot remember that upon your obedience depends your Fortune your , your future Quot what even the rupture of your marriage with the Marquis 7&Quot Quot even the rupture of my marriage with the Marquis. And perhaps Quot added she in a Low voice Quot of my marriage a with some one Quot my god Quot exclaimed the poor student beside himself Quot you do not deceive me Quot Quot Zion Feliciano said she emphasising particularly the word Don Quot a Beautiful path opens before you All that is necessary is that you should walk with a firm step. I will be your Quot you i see Orita Quot Quot yes i will advise then signing to to him that the hour for their interview had p Ossed away she added taking leave of him with an affectionate smile Quot Adieu Feliciano we shall soon meet again. Be prudent be discreet be Resolute. All will succeed i assure Temperance conversing a few Days since with an intelligent gentleman a resident of Vermillion county in this state he remarked that their county Temperance society numbering near six Hundred persons had not failed to hold a monthly meeting for several years past. This fact tells Well for that county Atud we doubt whether there is another in the state of which the same can be said. It is too frequently the Case that Temperance societies Are permitted to die in a few months after their organization. The conceited counsel lob and the witty witness a one Day that Dunning whose exterior graces were by no Means commensurate with his personal vanity had been Cross examining a Young woman at considerable length upon the age of a person with whom she professed herself Well acquainted he asked Here Quot How old now do you take me to be Quot and was completely dumbfounded by her promptly replying to the Universal laughter of a crowded court Quot from your appearance sixty from your question id Quot it is rumoured at Washington City that information had been received at the War department that the officers of the Volunteer Force under Gen.

We sub join father m s reply. Cork August 3lst, 1846. Hon. And dear Gen. T. C. Furnoy whilst i express my grateful acknowledgement of your exceeding condescension in being the bearer of the much prize invitation of my most respected and beloved friends in the states of America i must solicit your Pardon for saying that your visit has been to me a source of great anxiety. I am most desirous to witness the happiness the fortunate people of your great and prosperous country enjoy and to unite with your benevolent self denying citizens in diffusing More widely the Observance of the evangelical virtue of Temperance. It would even cause me a bitter Pang if i were denied the Hope of devoting there a portion of my he to that sacred Mission yet i see obstacles and difficulties and doubts on every Side. A Little time i confide Nuy Trust will leave me free to gratify my inclinations and to Cross the wide Atlantic. Please honoured dear general to convey to or. Delevan and All America my Heartfelt thanks and fervent aspirations for tiie progressive Prosperity and greatness of your glorious Commonwealth. I have the Honor to be with great respect. Dear Gen. T. C. Flournoy your grateful and devoted Friend Theobald Mathew. Able to look upon Dona Inez without experiencing a Lively emotion and when he had in some measure recovered his self Possession he asked but for a simple Flower which she held in her hand. Dona Inez granted his wish with some hesitation then As her protect Ress the Princess Des Ursine passed on she graciously saluted Feliciano and slowly moved away. Feliciano had preserved a delightful remembrance of this adventure. He had but one desire and that was to see again the Young and charming stranger and for this purpose he had come to Madrid. Dona Inez on her part had cherished the memory of the Young student who had so courageously Suc cored her and 80 gallantly named his recompense. Knowing the Humble condition of Feliciano and not dreaming that he would aspire to her hand not because she should herself place any obstacle in his Way but because Madame Des Ursine was too proud to tolerate what she would consider a most improper Union she did not at first confess to herself the sentiment which she cherished for him but persuaded herself that it was simply the effect of her gratitude. It was then with pleasure and without suspicion that she observed every Day his presence before the Gates of the Palace. Her own love was not revealed to her till she was made acquainted with the project of uniting her to the Marquis de los Herreros one of the greatest lords of the court. This project displeased her not Only because she loved Feliciano but because she detested the Marquis. From that time she dreamed but of some Means to prevent the marriage and she resolved that if she could not marry Feliciano at least she would never marry the Marquis. This plan of conduct decided upon it must be executed and that was difficult. The contracts had been drawn and Strong family considerations pleaded in favor of the los Herreros. How could she resist such powerful reasons ? she sought in vain for Council or support in those around her they were All Eitnier indifferent or interested in favor of tiie Union. It was in this state of feeling that the see Ora Carmina found Dona Inez when she presented herself before her. W e know tiie result of this interview. Dona Inez occupied in the Palace a Littie Turret composed of several apartments which she had furnished to her taste. Rich stuffs from Hungary and from Flanders and furniture brought from Paris expressly for her displayed every where Timeir Graceful and elegant forms. Several paintings of celebrated artists among them those of Coello an imitator of Paul Veronese and those of the Spanish Titian Coreno ornamented the Pannels of the apartment. A sculptor of great Fame the Pradier of Madrid Alvares had also contributed to adorn it. In one word nothing had been neglected to Render it a delightful abode. Her service with the Queen not requiring her presence till the hour of retiring which was near Midnight left her still at Liberty for nearly two hours. Under different pretexts Dona Inez dismissed her waiting maids keeping but one near her and thus she waited for the student. It was not Long before he made his appearance. Thanks to tiie disguise invented by his hostess he had entered without difficulty. No one thought to inquire Why he came to the Palace he found Dona Inez in one of the apartments we have just described. As she did not immediately perceive his presence he was enabled for an instant to examine her at his Leisure. A More adorable creature he never beheld. Dona Inez had tiie Black eyes the Coral lips Aud the Teeth of Pearl of a native of Arragon. Small but with Fine figure she carried in her person that Grace which charms so powerfully. She was called the most agreeable Young lady in the Palace and justly so. Reuse or Lawrence never imagined anything More bewitching. Alti Tough she was eighteen you would not have imagined she was More than fifteen she was so you Tifful still in her words and slightest gestures. Elizabeth of Parma petulant wilful and satirical seeing in her a living resemblance of herself was particularly attached to her. At this moment Dona Inez was arrayed with coquettish simplicity in a White and red undress with Large sleeves Little sandals embroidered with Gold and silk covered her orders to Gex. special messenger or message has been despatched it is said from the War department direct to Gen. Taylor at Monterey instructing him if he has not anticipated the order to take Possession of the it merits ? Feliciano could not reply the disdainful voice of Inez pierced his heart. Quot a 1 Well Quot resumed the Ward of Madame Des basins Quot have you nothing to say ? Why do you tremble so ? what troubles you so much ? of what Are you afraid ? come speak i will Quot a Well i you Are to to it is said you to be married Quot stammered the poor student nicking a violent Effort. Quot that is True. What next Quot Quot you Are going to marry the Marquis do los Quot that is also True. What Are you coming to now 7&Quot Quot a How Happy he is Quot Feliciano drawing a deep sigh. Quot and what has my marriage to do i Pray you Tell me wit ii your strange epistle Quot Quot what has it to do ? a 1 see Orita have you never dreamed that there might be some one in the world whose heart would be broken by your marriage Quot said the poor Bachelor his eyes filling with tears. Dona Inez moved in spite of her will again regarded him. A secret feeling revealed to her that Feliciano could not be As guilty As she had at first thought him. Nevertheless every appearance was against him every thing accused him everything condemned him. There was in All this a mystery which must be fathomed. Understanding that she could not penetrate it till she ceased to terrify him she said changing All at once her vol a and her manner Quot if it is True that the person of whom you speak feels so much interest for me Why does he not Endeavor to pre vent it Quot Quot to prevent it can he. See Orita ? is there any remedy ? of what can he do ? speak and you shall be obeyed v Quot it must first be shown me that i am deceived by Falso 1 do not understand you Quot replied the student wit ii simplicity. Quot you do not understand me ? listen to me then and reply without the least evasion. At the Point at which we Are it would be useless to talk in this guarded manner any longer. You love me or at least you pretend to is it not so Quot Quot a see Orita with All my soul god is my Quot you have written for me Only and to me Only the contents of this letter Quot Quot to you alone and for you Quot do you persist in saying so 7&Quot a i will swear Quot take care your obstinacy May destroy your Quot Lam sure of myself i fear Quot How does it Tsien happen that 1 have seen a letter precisely similar to this received by a person who holds so High a place in the court that i dare not speak her name 7&Quot Deciliano was confounded. He had copied a letter which he had not been the first to make use of. Another had served himself with it before. Without doubt it had been circulated through the court. That was evident. Obliged to pass either for a plagiarist or for an intrigue he did not hesitate Long. A Little shame is soon put to flight. He confessed the Truiti hoping that because of his frankness Aud above All because of his motive to act thus she would excuse him. And in truth Happy to find him innocent. Dona Inez at first amused herself with his embarrassment then wishing to know who Hod dared thus to write to the Queen she said to him Quot and from whom took you this letter 7&Quot Quot see Orita from Monsieur be Quot from Monsieur be Cardinal you Quot i am in Earnest. Quot did he indeed give it to you 7&Quot Quot upon my Boner. Quot and How came it to pass that his Eminence made you this tender present 7&Quot Feliciano related with heightened color his visit to Al Beroni of which he did not omit the slightest act air. Quot is it possible i Quot exclaimed Dona Inez both delighted and feet which was extremely Small. Following the fashion of indignant. Quot did he dare to treat you Luis 7 a that is the time she had concealed her Beautiful Black hair under a not very charitable for a servant of god but you have powdered wig which gave to her countenance already so certainly preserved the sketch of this Madrigal 7&Quot piquant an expression still More determined.

Who could Tell 7 "1 will obey chapter The conspiracy. In order to understand the remainder of this narrative it will be necessary to retrace our Steps. The first thoughts of Madame Des Ursine on arriving at Saint Jean de Luz where she first recovered her Liberty after the strange abduction which a word of the Young Queen Elizabeth misunderstood had caused to be immediately executed by eager courtiers her first thought we say was that she was the victim of a conspiracy and that some powerful enemy had column rated her to her Young Sovereign. A lady of her rank and of her Merit would not be exiled and compelled to travel night and Day a Hundred leagues in a court dress with Bare head arms and neck in the midst of Winter without an Opportunity being Given her to change her costume or add the slightest clothing in such severe cold weat Iier unless there were serious causes of displeasure against her. Now what were these causes 7 did tiie Queen consider it a crime that the Princess had presented herself to her arrayed in a ceremonious court dress 7 or As the boldness with which she in virtue of the Post of Camerera mayor recalled to her memory the Laws of etiquette so severe in Spain considered a crime 7 in the latter Case it must be then that Zeal itself was in the eyes of Elizabeth a reason for exile. Whatever might be the reason of her banishment Madame Dea Ursine was not a woman to remain in uncertainty. She was anxious to learn what she had to expect. She wrote immediately to the King Phillip Did not reply to her letter. She sent her compliments to the Queen dowager who resided at Bayonne. The Queen dowager would not receive her message. Irritated by what she called their ingratitude she turned for assistance to her Early friends. She despatched her Nephew Lanti to Versailles. But Louis Xiv. And m idame de main tenon turned a deaf ear. She had too deeply wounded both of them in former times for them to dream of rendering her assistance. Her own arrival at Paris was no More effective. She took up her residence with the Duke de Noi Moutier her brother where she received at first several visits dictated rather by ceremony than by Friendship and soon even these visits ceased and the proud Princess fell into the most completo Solitude. For Madame Des Ursine such indifference was a punishment. Not it being willing to submit longer to such neglect and to retire from the Erena vanquished without a struggle she resolved to withdraw for the present to a magnificent chateau of which she in Touraine. This chateau of which at present Only a Pagoda remains was called Chanteloup because of its position in the Centre of an in Menso Forest. It was considered one of the most Beautiful Cli Taux in France and was so richly ornamented that it was said that d Aubigny who had constructed it had endeavoured to make it a Royal abode. All that nature and Art could furnish to Delight and Charm was there in prof Einn. It Avon millions equal to ten millions Day. Madame Des Ursine remained Here two years during which time she was actively employed in preparing for her re appearance upon the scene. At the end of this time she left Chanteloup and entered Spain secretly. Her first thought had been to conspire against the King to whom she attributed her disgrace but soon being convinced that Cardinal Alberoni was alone the a Tizor of her misfortunes she turned All her intrigues against him. She determined to overthrow the idol of the moment and to trample him under her feet. Nothing could turn her aside from her great plan even should the course of her intrigues oblige her to deprive Philip Of his throne she would she thought in that Case place the Duke of Orleans upon it who being embroiled equally with herself would of course Grant his favor. Instructed in what had passed at the court through the correspondence she held with her Pupil. Dona Inez she sent before her a faithful emissary. This emissary was an italian musician an Active adroit and intriguing Man called Sabbadini. Alberoni had formerly prosecuted him and Sabbadini cherished a violent hatred against him. He prepared the Way for the Princess discontented persons were not wanting and Alberoni by his insolence and Pride seemed to take pleasure in increasing the number daily. When Madame Des Ursine arrived at Madrid she found the conspiracy already planned. The highest dignitaries of the kingdom were concerned in it. A minister a also the minister of finances Orry of French extraction had consented to join it As had Aiso a Cardinal. In fd., the vindictive Princess not Only wished to overthrow Alberoni she also wished to place a successor in Power. For this purpose so j had cast her eyes with favor on the Cardinal Porto Carrero. Don Luis Fernandez Boccanera appointed Cardinal by Clement in and archbishop of Toledo was says Saint Simon an old Man of an imposing figure honest polite Frank of moderate abilities easy to guide and above All a declared enemy to Alberoni. This was a suitable person for the purposes of the sex favorite. It was Long before she imparted to him her designs and obtained his consent. Her object in obtaining for him the Post of prime minister was to return with him to Power and to become As powerful As she had before been under the name of the Cardinal. One of the principal leaders of the conspiracy the Duke of Escalona an old Man seventy two years of age tall lean proud eyes deeply set with a Stern expression a Bald forehead and a Quick and decided voice had opened his House to the conspirators. It was there they met. It was there Madame Des Urr ins took up her abode. As soon As she arrived she sent word by the Duke to Dona Inez that she wished for an interview Dona Inea hastened to visit her. The old Princess who knew her to be like herself a prudent and Resolute woman confided her projects to her. She concluded the conversation by announcing that she had promised her hand to the Manuis de los Herreros. The Marquis was old ugly and poor but he was first Chamberlain and possessed tiie Confidence of Philip v., and they needed him Dona Inez whom he had noticed on account of her youth her Beauty and her Fortune was promised As his Reward if he would assist them. We have seen in what manner Dona Inez received this proposition with the object of gaining time and How in consequence of her interview with Feliciano she had to avoid it. In the meantime the Day on which the conspirators were to act openly had arrived. All the members of the conspiracy were assembled at the hour agreed upon at the House of the Duke d . Among them was observed with grave and absent Mien the count of Palma Nephew of Porto Carrero the Duke of Rio Secco ancient governor of i Ian Don p Rederic of Toledo a near relative of Dona Inez Don Antonio Ubilla. Secretary of despatches Don Bena Vides de Saint Estevan Viceroy of Sardinia Aud Sicily and lastly the Marquis de los Herreros and Madame Des Ursine. All of these with the exception of the Marquis and the Princess were dressed very simply in order that their arrival at the Duke d Escalona s Stoulil not be observed. They would have been taken with their doublets without embroidery and their steel halted rapiers for simple citizens. Madame Des Ursyn her Colin tenancy Radiant with Hope had had resource to All that the most exquisite coquetry could furnish to add to the enchantments of a woman of her age. She wore a Robe of Green Tours silk with plaited sleeves embroidered with pearls and garnished with lace. Her shoes were made by Lacove and her hair was dressed by a Pupil of Vauthier two artists then High in favor in their several vocations. She played coquettish by with a fan Assi a undid As Ali it which the Duke of Orleans had presented to the Queen. I Hanks to Tiro illusion of her Toilette and the skillful Ness with which she made use of its Many splendid details this woman of seventy five would have passed for Twenty years younger to the most critical observer. As to the do Herreros he was the breathing image of the Don Iii note of Cervantes with his great nose hair thin and Grey scanty Beard arms Long legs out of All proportion and his body Short. There was not however a Hidalgo among them All who was prouder More imperious More susceptible More obstinate and above All More Crafty and More vain. Knight of the Golden key and Chamberlain of Philip a nothing in the world could have induced him to quit for a single instant his Brilliant cos Tumo with the ruffles on the wrists the slashes on the legs Aud sleeves Aud following the of the Marquis de , his Long sword in its scabbard. The Duko d Escalona had placed at the disposal of his accomplices one of the largest apartments in his vast Palace in the Beautiful Street of Alcala. Prudent measures had been taken. All the Walls were Hung with thick tapestry and the windows covered with triple curtains. The game they were about to play was perilous. A watch word Given by the Princess must be repeated before the Palace could be entered. Now there occurred at this time what almost always occurs when anything is to be performed which has not been clearly defined. The interest of the cause in which they were engaged had forbidden that they should meet together but All the leaders of the conspiracy whose positions supplied arms against Alberoni had Sepe rattly promised that every Means should be employed to Advance the common object. At the time appointed however not one brought the least assistance. Each one depended upon the others and had remained As inactive As if the conspiracy was to execute itself. Madame Des Ursine was cruelly disappointed she who trusting to her imprudent friends had hastened with the match in her hand believing that it was Only necessary to put fire to the powder in order that the mine prepared by her laborious cares should explode. Nevertheless her courage did not fail. Her natural Energy was strength ened by difficulties. Several of the conspirators believing that the plot had failed and seeing Only the danger to which they exposed themselves by struggling against Alberoni already spoke of withdrawing. Some others did not speak of it but thought of doing the same. Madame Des Ursine saw that she was threatened by a Complete desertion. It must be prevented at any Price. Time was precious. If she lost this Opportunity she could probably never again find another and he the very mention of whose name increased her hatred would Triumph forever. But what method should she take to dissipate the fear which spread from one to another. Already confusion reigned in the Hall. Everybody wished to speak at once and no one would listen. An unlocked for incident happily came to her assistance. At the moment when All seemed lost the tapestry which covered the Wall moved divided and the Young and pretty Ward of the Princess appeared. It was you May remember the next Day after her interview with Feliciano. At the appearance of Inez the tumult ceased As if by magic several lords believed themselves betrayed cried treason and attempted to Fly. Dona Inez calmed them by a gesture then advancing in their midst she said in a firm and Sweet voice to be . From the Gulf Squadron. The tru Tori s officers and Cirtno returned troops for Monterey Santa Annas a Marine sentenced to death a. The u. S. Revenue Cutter Van Buren Captain Rudolph arrived below new Orleans on the 29th ult having left the blockading Squadron off Vera Cruz on the 15th. We gather the following intelligence from the Picayune and Bee there had been no official communication Between the Squadron and the mexican authorities since the reception of the answer to the offer of negotiation except in relation to capt. Carpender nothing was known of the movement of Santa Anna or the existing mexican government. Commodore Webster of the Revenue service came passenger in the Van Buren to the Belize. We learn that capt. J. B. Nones of the Revenue Cutter Forward has been suspended from his command by com. Webster for non compliance with orders and that Lieut. Mcgowan has been placed in command. It appears that the Forward was dispatched to the Gulf by com. Webster with orders to report to com. Connor the readiness of the commander of the Revenue Squadron to act with him wit ii directions to capt. N. To act under his orders until he com. Webster should arrive. Capt. Nones did so and was ordered to assist in maintaining the blockade and of course ran up the National Flag. When com. Webster arrived he sent a message to capt. Nones directing him to hoist the Revenue Flag to which capt. N. Replied that As he was Chi detached from the blockading Squadron when he should to pleased to recognize capt. Webster As his commanding officer. The matter will be Laid before the Secretary of the Treasury for his action. Off , sept. 3d, 1846. Gentlemen a i have Only time to say that we have just communicated with the Shore by a Flag and learn that the officers of the Truxton Are now probably on their Way to Vera Cruz having some Days since arrived at Puebla. There Are also said to be an officer and eight or ten seamen belonging to the Princeton added to the party they having been seized in the attempt to fire the Truxton. The mexican officer who came out with the Flag thinks Tipiere will be no difficulty in the Way of the immediate release of All the prisoners on the parole of the commander in chief of the Squadron. The John Adams the Falmouth and the Revenue Cutter Mclane the latter commanded by the popular William a. Howard Are at present lying Here but the first and last named will probably sail to Day one for the South and the other for the northward. Off Vera Cruz sept. 13th. A Flag of truce came of the John Adams a few evenings ago bearing proposals from deliver the Trux ton s officers and Crew Over to com. Connor on parole. We expect them every hour and presume they will return to the United Sute immediately in tiie store ship Relief or Sloop John Adams. The last named vessel came in a few Days since from Tampico at which place she left every thing pretty much As she found it. She boarded the Revenue Cutter Van Buren on her Way Down and took on Board com. Webster of the Revenue Marine who was very ill. He has now however quite recovered and has hoisted his Broad Pennant on Board the Forward. A court martial was held on the 1st inst., on Board the Sloop of War St Mary a before which a Seaman of that ship named Samuel Jackson was tried on charges preferred by capt. Saunders and found guilty of the three follow veg a striking his Superior officer while in the execution of the duties of his office treating with contempt his Superior being in the execution of Bis office and uttering sedition and mutinous words. The sentence of tiie court was that Quot Samuel Jackson Seaman of the u. S. Navy be hanged by the neck until he be dead at such time and place As the commander in chief May . ,.i lie Commodore after reviewing the proceedings of the court has issued a general order from which i make the following extract Quot the proceedings findings and sentence in the above Case Are approved and confirmed. I therefore direct that the said Samuel Jackson Seaman be hanged by the neck at the fore Vard Arm of the u. S. Ship St. Mary son thursday the 17th Quot Day of september 1846, Between the hours of ten o clock. A. M. And Meridian. Quot in order that a suitable impression May be made on All minds in the Squadron and that there May be nothing to divert their thoughts from so melancholy a spectacle and that the maybe duly impressed with the awful consequence which must Ever follow such violations of Law As were committed by this unhappy Man it is directed that no work be done in the Squadron on that Day that when the preparatory signal is made for execution by the Cumberland a yellow Flag shall be displayed from tic fore Royal Mast head of the St. Mary a the officers and Crew of every vessel of the Squadron present shall be mustered on deck and they shall be kept on deck until the yellow Flag on Board the St Mary s is hauled the Fate of this unhappy Man it is hoped will have a salutary influence and impress on tiie minds of All present the of keeping a strict watch Over their passions and tempers at All times and in All situations. I am sorry to learn that every officer on Board the St. Mary s believe that the execution will not take place and the opinion unhappily extends to the Man himself. I fear he will be awfully disappointed As the Commodore considers him in Irr Einis sible Vittini to the Demon of example. His offence was a Gross one he struck the officer of the deck who was at the time acting As 1st lieutenant almost entirely without for anger or complaint. He is an irishman and it is said of a very respectable family. Santa Anna delayed his movement too Long and is now viewed with extreme coldness by Many of his former friends i believe he is yet at Puebla not feeling sufficiently Strong to make a on tiie Capitol. He stands ready to give the people any Quantity or kind of pledges which he will r Quot deem or not according As expediency May dictate.
