During the early part of Thursday
thc weather continued dreadfully wet,
but it got better occasionally. In
the mean time the crowds of people
flocked to the tilting ground, which
was dreadfully cut up. It was well
known, however, to those who thought
of thc matter that it was impossible to
get on with thc Tournament, the ar

to inform the people how matters
stood. His Lordship stated that it
was impossible to go on that day, but
on Friday, wet or dry, the tilting'would
be proceeded with. At every place
which he visited, the Earl was receiv

attentive condescension, and every one

It was then announced that the Earl
of I'glinton would tilt with the Knight
oftheBose (J. O. Leclunere).
In the first course they missed. Ditto
the second. In the third course, Lord
Kglinton broke his lance in capital style,
and was rewarded by the applause of the
Queen of Beauty and the Public.
Succeeding this tilt, the herald moved
opposite the seat of the Queen of Beau
ty and after repeating "0 yes," three
times, announced that an Unknown
Knight had challenged the Knight of
the Dolphin. (Karl Cassillis.) This
created considerable excitement, for

The Knight of thc Red Rose Mr

against the Knight ol the Grillin (Ear!
Craven.) Three tilts were run, with
out however, the splintering of a lance,
and the Grillin was declared thc winner.
The last' course was between tlie
Knight of the Red Lion (J. O. Fnirlie)
with the Knight of the Burning" Tow
er (Sir F. Hopkins.) In the first tlicy
slightly touched; -in the second, the
lance of the Red Knight was shivered.
A third bout was tried, and was a
miss ; and finally thc palm was adjudg
ed to J. C. Inirlie, Lsquire.
During" the tilting, of , which the
above is a summary; the young noble
men and gentlemen were actively en
gaged in what is called running at thc
ring that is placing" the ring sus
pended by a rope, and allowing all par
ties to take a tilt at it, for the purpose
of removing it, when the steed is at
full gallop." The Earl of Eglinton was
one of the most successful competitors
in this (k j .artiiient.
The tilting at. the ring was followed
on Fridav with much heart and activ
ity. The ring" is suspended from a
cord nearly on a level with the horse's
head, and taking1 a start, perhaps thir
ty yards distant, the Knight or Squire
urges his horse to the gallop, and the
triumph consists in bearing away the
ring on the point of a spear. Lord
Eglinton was successful above all oth
ers in this manlv exercise.
As a termination, the total number
of Knights rehehiied themselves, and
being started from the respective ends
of the lists, they struck at each other
with their swords in passing. Only
one or two cuts were given ; but in
the case of the Marquis of Waterford
and Lord AJford, instead of moving
on after a blow or two, the pair wheel
ed round their steeds and commenced
hitting in real earnest. This was con
ceived to be part of the performance
by thc spectators but it was no
such thing; and Sir Charles Lamb,
who dashed up between the combat
ants, bad quite enough to do to sep
arate the pair.
A splendid ball and banquet was held
in the evening, and Lord I'glinton an
nounced that the tilting would be car
ried on with all spirit the following
day, should the weather permit. The
amusements in the field were not fin
ished till after 7 i m.
. Domf.stic Di'ties. So entirely do hu
man actions derive their dignity or their
meanness from the motives by which they
arc prompted, that it is no violation of
truth to say, the most servile drudgery
may be ennobled by the self-sacrifice, the
patience, the cheerful submission to duty,
with which it is performed. Thus a high
minded and intellectual woman is never
more truly great than when willingly and
judiciously performing kind offices for
the sick ; and much as may be said, and
said justly, in praise of the public virtues
of women, the voice of nature is so pow
erful in every human heart, that could
the question of superiority on these two
points be universally proposed, a response
would be heard throughout the world, in
favor of woman in her private and do
