red one nl tli isc! exlraurdiiiuti' coses, which
sliow u-) liow iiietl"ucliely llie roniancist, even
when his liiianiiition i! strained to the utmost
can portray the extreme of passion of which
human nature is susceptilile. A communica
tion, betiritiir tlio d.Uu February the 20tlt,
from the rock-built furtrcs which the English
keep as a key H the Metlit rranean, relates
the lollowini' particulars:
A respectable merchant, named James
Raxwell born at London, had removed in ear-
U life to Gibraltar, induced partly by the cir
cumstance of his bcin-r of the same reiijious
persuasion to which the people of his adopted
country belonged. For many years' he occu
pied n small dwelling nai the base of Mount
t. Michael, so renowned for its caves and
crystaliz ttions. lie carried on a successlul
trallic in all the articles of liiitish manufac
ture introduced into Spain. He acquired in
truth, a very considerable fortune in tit s way.
All the country knew that lie had a large k
m unit of treasures lying by him, not to spunk
of the capital beloniii!' to him, which Mas em
barked in commeice. His name was one of
crct'i: in t.ll the principal houses of exchange
James Li ixwell linil a daughter, nil only
daughter, aged seventeen, and f of remarkable
beuuty. Her countenance and figure com
bined in ti most agreeable manner the peculi
ar cliai nn of the Englishwoman with the soft
and languishing charactistics of the Spaniard.
Y"oug as sho was, she had been for some two
years nn object of devoted admiration to a.'l
the youths around Gibrulter. At church
they devoured her with their eyes, and many
many a one, thought to himself that happy
above ull men would be he who could win the
smiles of Elciiu Hazwell. Dut Elezia bestow-
d her smiles upon no one. She seemed to
those whose involuntary sighs she ex
cited, to carry maidenly modesty to frceziti"
coldness. At mass her eyes were ever bent
upon her book, regardless of all thu glances
cast upon ner oy outer.
Such at least was the case till shortly be-
tore ino events to oe narrated. At length
however, Elezia did sea one, who awakened
herself some of the emotions which she bad
caused in others. At mass one day, she ob
served the eyes of a young stranger fixed up
on her with an expression of admiration and
respect. To her he seemed a being superior
all the young men she had evor yet bi held
From that moment her e din and self-possessed
demeanor left her forever. Abroad and
borne, she w as restless and uneasy, Uut
long, the stranger found an oppoitunitf
being introduced to her, and mutual avow
al of love followed at no great distance of
Assured of the affections of Elezia the young
stranger men presented uimself to Mr. 13a x
"1 am named William Katl,"said he to the
merchant; "I am like youis.-lf, an E115lishm.n1
I mn of respectable family and character,
young and wealthy. Give me your daughter
we loo ononnohrr."
"Never!" said James Maxwell, to -i hom the
position and circumstances of the yottn.r man
we e not unknown; "never! You belong to
the dominant relnion of England, by which
my fathers suffered so much mid so long.
iou ure a Liutnerean nnil my daughter is n
Catholic. Such n union 'could not bo happy
nor will I ever give tny consent to it. Elezia
shall never be yours!" Thu daughter inform
ed of this declaration threw herself at the feet
of her father and endeavored Ir, move him
from his purpose. Ileriover did thu same.
Hut thu father remained obstinate, mid a vio
lent scene tool; place between Eh-zhi and her
parent. The blood of thu fiery South coursed
in the daughter's Veins, and she declared that
s'is aoiiU marry the object of her choice,
despite of all opposition. Jams ll.ix.vell, on
the other hand, declared hu would so mer7
her with his own hand-', than see her carry
such a resolution into efl'eet. As to William
liatt, who stood by nt this fecne, he kept si
lence. What thoughts wero revolviii" i,i his
inintl, tt would be dillicult to say.
Two days afterwards, an :i!ur

purposes. The noise at first consisted of loud
cries which gradually became fainter, and at

each other with am lzemetit, and many wore
the conjectures ns to thu causa of the sounds!

whisper went abroad that James Maxwell had
assassinated his daughter, to previ nt her mar -
riiige with William Knit, and ultimately, this
conjecture was so forcibly pressed on the at

inquire into the matter. 'J'he dwelling of tin?
merchant was examined, but nothing crimi
nafory could lie found.
"The cave! the cave is the place!" cried
some of the crowd. The magistrates then
descended into tho eave, nnd tln-re, on lifiing
some lose, stones', they found a po lion of Elu
zia's dress sprinkled all over wi h blood. They
also discovered a small quantily of hair, clot
ted with gore, and that hair was recogniz-d
by many as having been taken from the bead
of Elezi i.
Maxwell protested his innocence. Iiut the
proof seemed strong against him, and he was
regularly brought to trial. The result was
his conviction for the murder of his daughter,
and his ci n.lemiiniion to death.
On receiving sentence, the unhappy mer
chant trembled lo exce-s, and a'icrwards
seemed utterly overpowered by the dread ul
nature of liis situ it on. He continued in a
stale almost of total insensibility during the
interval between the t.ial, and the day appoin
ted for his execution. On the morning of thy
latter day, the jailer came to announce to him,
for the linal time, hat the moment of (ate was
at band. The mi rchunl was seiz l again
with a fearful trembling, and he cried what
he had reiterated to ull who saw him in his
"Mefoie my Maker, I swear that I am j u lt
less of my child's death !"
They led him out to the scafjold. There

exclaimed at the very foot of the scall'old:
"My friend, in one minute 1 shall be in

Give me your hand I pardon you freely for
the injury your evidence has done me."
IJaxwell s-ud this with sotno composure,

but the effect of bis words uoon Kalt wi re
very stiiliing. lie became pale as death, and
could not conceal the depth of his agitation.
Maxwell mounted the slep3 of the "allows
slowly, and gave himself up to the hands of ,
the execution, to undergo death by the rope,
According to tho ancient custom of Gibrul tar,
executioner commenced his last dulies bv ,
crying in a !oud voice : "Justice is doing; Jus-!

pulled it down in front so as to cover the eyes, i
He had just doau (his, when he was stopped

of the scnUoIJ. "It is I who am juiltj
This cry came from Willinm Katt. Tho
magistrates in attendance instantly calied him
forward and demanded nn explanation. The
young man avowed that ho had carried off
Elezia, with her consent, to be bis wife, and
that she was now residing Pol far off in con
cealment. Mut to her he did not cominuni-
calo other measures which he had taken,
chiefly to revenge himself for the scorn of her
father. He had contrived to cutoff a portion
of her hair while she slept, lie had clotted
it with the blood of a lamb, nnd had also
sprinkled in the same wuy a part of Elezia's
dress, which he had purltinu l. Th.-se arti
cles be had placed in thu cave, nnd there, al
so, he hud emitted personally, those cries,

chant Ths generous pardon which the mer
chant had bestowed on him at tho scaffold,
had uwakened (the young man said.) instan
taneous remorse in bis breast, uud compelled
him to avow the truth.
This confession was partly mado at the
fcaffuld, and partly afterwards. As soon as
Katt had spoken out decisively, the execu
tioner had turned 10 James Maxwell to take
from bim the insignia of death. The mer
chant almost unobserved, had sunk to a sitlin-'
poslure. Ihu black bonnet was dra n by I

j There is another observation in regard to
j cities which induce thoughtful men, who take
i pride in llieir posterity, to remove Iroin them
! when they have accom(dished tho objects for
1 which they w ere souifht. How many millions
of children educated in cities w ith the utmost
care, have passed away without reaching dis
tinction among the r countrymen. It is re-
markable that children born and bred in citi
es generally exhibit precocious talents, they
have the easiest access to every species of
learning; they nre stimulate J to exertion in
the schools by the number of competitors, and
by that parental pride, vigilance, and solitude,
