A LEGEND of PETER the CRUEL

P.isquole rep ir d instantly to the spot where
the inuidt-r had been committed. The street
was tilled with people gar.iiie; anxiously upon
a stone stained with the blood of poor Anton

but could receive no new information. He
visited the adjoining houses, but to no bettor
purpose. Pasquale retuined lo his house, in
hopes that some discoveries had bten made du
ring his absence. Hut noihing new had been
heard. The wotcii testified that they had
found Antonio still holding his swnnl iu his
hand, which nroved that he had died while

er 7 Juan Pasquale spent the day in vain
conjectures, and the night passed, without
bringing anyltiing new to liu'ht. At day-break
lie rueived an order to repair to the palace.
"Well," inquired Don Pedro, "do you know
the a-vsassin t"
"Not yet, my lord, but I have set on foot
the most uctive investigations."

Junii Pasquale spe .1 the day in making fresh
inquiries, but with no lieltcr success, and the
next mor.'iiiit' was again summoned into the
"Well, anything new f" asked Don Pedro.
"Nothing, my lord," replied Pafqtinle.nmre
ashamtd of the vain attempts lie had made,
than anxious for his own safety.
"One more day is left," replied the king,
coldly. "It is more than such a skillful judge
as you are, should require to discover a mur
derer." And he retired. :
In the evening, Juan Pasquale, who "had
only the night left, resolved once more to visit
the spot where the murder had been perpeira-te-JS,
thinking that it must he from that place
or its neighborhood that he could most likely
obtain some inlormation. He found the mur
der of Antonio Mendez already entirely for
gotten, and the stone still red with the blood
of the victim, was the only testimony left
the deed. "
While Juan Pasquale was buried in deep
thought, revolving in his mind the strange
mystery which seemed to surround the whole
affair, he heard a voice calling; him, and saw
an old woman beckoning to him from an win
dow of an adjoining house, as though she had
someihing to sny to him. In the situation in
any information whatsoever eight be accept-
which the judge round himself, he thought
able. He therefore advanced towards the
window; tut nt the same momenta key full
at his feet.nnd the window wns closed. Pas
quale understood that the old woman did net
want to be seen, and picking up the key, he
opened the door of the house, carefully closed
it behind him, and ascending a durk staircase,
soon found himself in the presence of the old
woman, who motioned to him to walk iu and
close the door behind him.
"It was you, my good woman, who made
me a sign to come up was it not?" inquired
"Yes," she replied, "fori guessed what
you were looking for."
"And can vou give me the information which
I seek ?"
"Perhaps, if you will promise not to betray
"I promise not to, an I besides, I will give
you a large reward."
"Oh, it is not so much the prospeci of
remark which neveitheless will ilo me
harm, for I am not rich as the fear of seeing
such a good man as you, in trouble, which bus
determined me to leveul what 1 know. Every
one has heard of what your fate is to be,
you do not find out the murderer before to
morrow; and what would become of poor Se
ville, when deprived of its good judge V
"Well, then good woman, speak ! In the
name of Heaven, tell me what you know !'
'Well, then, 1 must tell you," continued
the old woman, "that the house opposite be
longs to Count Sallusiic de ilaro."
"1 know it,"
"It was inhabited by lib sister, Dona Leon
ora." I know that, also."
Well, the setiorn loved a handsome cava
lier, who used to come to visit her every even

"Yesterday morning, the brother, v.hoprcb

So that, wheu the young cavalier piesented
himself, last evening, he found the dour closr
"Continue, I am listening."
"Well, as that did not suit the young cava

order she had received, refused to admit him,
he attempted to burst open the door."
"At) I ah 1 violence 1" exclaimed . Pasquale.
"It was at that time that poor Antonio pre
sented himself, and tried to induce him to re

"The king himself 1" . ..

"Well, fcow could you recognixo aim ?'
"By the crackingof hisbouesaa he walked."
'"It is true !" exclaimed the iudee: "I have

"And you will keep the secret?"
"Strictly, upon my honor."
"May God preserve you, my lord iuiV'e.nnd
grant you long life !'
then Juan Pasquale, taking leave of the
old woman, returned to h is palace, and sent
tnsiaiiitv a messeneer to the Alcazar. It was
a summons to Don Pedro, aKiug of Castile, to
appear before the tribunal of the printer ujjis-
:twe ot the city of Sevill !
Earlt the next nwrningJuan Pasquale con
voked the trilun.il of the viutiijualwt, with
out infutining them for what purpose thev
were assembled. All wore the great costume
of their charge, and the primer ussistente pre
sided over ihem, wilh the rod of justice in his
hand. An usl.er announced the king. All
down, gentlemen," said Juan Pas-
They obeyed and the kiiij? entered.
"V eli, seiior ataisU nU," said Don Pedro,
"what is your pleasure ? for you See that 1
hasten to your call, although your sumitxins
uiigl.Wmve been trausmilied tuu.e with u lit
tle more respect or politeness."
"Sire," replied Pasquale, "we have not to
deal with respect or politeness just now, but
wilh justice. I am not acting now as a king's
courtier, but os a magislrute of the people."
"Well, what will thou wiih me?"
"Sire," continued Juan i'qualu, "a mur
der was committed on Friday night. Your
highness is aware of it, since I received my
first information ("ruin you."
"Your highness gave rce three days to dis
cover the murderer."
"And," taid Pasquale, lookins steadfastly in
ie kind's face, "1 have discovered him !"
"Hj: ha !" said the king laughin,'.
"And I have summoned hiin to appear be

"And if the king of Pasquale should plead

Then he will be submitted to the trial ol

been preserved for that nurpase."
'That was useless," replied Don Pedro, in
a light manner; "1 killed the man."
"i rirgret, saiu Juun fa quale, in a grave
manner, "mat tee King ot uastile should ap
pear to aUno.b so little importance to the mur
der of one of his subjects, especially when the
muruer was cumimtietl with Ins own hands."
"Softly, senor umttentt," replied Don Pe

"The law is not so subtle, sire," replied the
ussisti'iiff, in a firm voice, "and from yourown
coulessions, you stand convicted of murder."
"It is f.lse, wretch !" exclaimed the king.
"I acknowledge that I killed the man, but i
warned him before, and ordered him to retire.
Then the fool drew his sword, and 1 killed
him. ho much the worse for him. hy did
he refuse to obey my orders ?"
"Because it belonged to ycu, sire, to obey
him, instead of olferiiig him a culpable resist
ance. Oh, threats cannot prevent me from
fulfilling n;y terrible duties. When, witnout
consulting me about it, you took me from my
mountains, and made me primer ussistcnt', it
was not to have a courtier, but a judge. Well
you stand berore the judge: what have you to
I have said all I have to say," replied the
"Then listen to our decision !"
The eyes of Don Pedrosparkled with pride;
he placed ins Hand upon the guard of his
sword. Juan Pasquale continued:
"To-morrow, at noon, Don Pedro of Castile,
I summon you to repair to the squaro of La
Giialda, she nearest one to the spot where the
crime was comiuit'ed, to listen and submit to
the sentence which justice shall fiud proper to
pronounce; and as you prize the mercy of God,
fail not to re, air thither with such feelings as
should fill the heart of the guilty but repent
And having thus spoken, in a slow but firm
voice, Juan Pasquale motioned to the king to
retire, nun rising nimseii, lie Jell ir.e court lot
lowed by the viiUiqutaroi.
1 he first feeling of Don Pedm had been
thai of anger; the next wa3 that of admiration.
At that pericd, the king of Castile was still
the first half of his life; he had beensurnamed
e .', and his heart was still susceptible
ofbeini; moved by a noble example unheard
oi an unexpected to tlnd among the courtiers
wnirii surrounded him a man who d;ired thus
to prosecute a king who had faili-d to olisjrve
the law of his kingdom. He reso.ved, there-
lore, to obey the summons Of the aiatter.te,
and repair, the next day, attired in the insig
nia of his supreme rank, to the phice of La
Giralda. Perrand de Castro, and Jjan Padil
la were alone to accompany him, dot wishing
a larger esc9rt, for fear he might bo suspected
of being intimidated. The new of this extra
ordinary trial socn spread through Seville, and
excited the surprise of all. The summons sent
to the kiiig; the obedience of Don Pedro to
one of his magistrates, he so accustomed to
command; the firmness of the judge, who had
dared to brave the kirtg'sauthorlty everything
announced for the next one "of those solemn
scenes long to be remembered by a nation.
wbtretore, the whole population of Seville
was seen the following morning rushing to
wards tne square or La uiraiaa.
Dun Pedro, with his companions, was am-
etly awaiting the hour at which he was to ap
peaf to hear the sentence passed upon him
self. His couitiers had insisted upon his
taking a larger escort, but the King had re
plied that he should insist rpon his orders be
ing fulfilled, and that no other guards should
be present but those who usually presided at
the judgments of the primer attitlente. But
he allowed a pozen of his oourtiers, unarmed,
to ioiiow ueninu, ana mai eniy alter ne naa

"At these words, deep groans and murnr.irs
of disapprobation rose au.on' the crowd. The!
people themselves thought the matter had

The o.tecn tinner taised his sword, and the

"Now said Juan Pasquale, "let this head be

of the king."
Then Don Pedro alighted from his horse,
