he was then standing upon the vortex of a volca

clear sky, the awful truth flashed upon the minds
of men, that they were in the midst of one of the
most terrific Mid bloody as well as one of the most
brilliant revohtions that ever disgraced thp-annals

t'lan the awfuj axe fell upon the fair neck of his
(j ieea ; the biautiful, the accomplished, though
dissipated Majia Antoinette. The reeking instru
ment, which lstd drank tho blood of the royal pair,
was not yet stiiatcd. The knell of vengeance had
hounded, and 'jie greedy guillotine was to feed and
fatten on the agonies of the whole Bourbon family.
Never was any nation cursed with a set of more
terrible tyrans than those who wielded the reek
ing sceptre of iFranre, triumphing in the downfall
of all that was great, or good, or glorious, and
dooming to deith all who opposed their savage ca-
nvr. Their iurch was in blood ; and a thousand
mothers minced theircries and mourned over the
tombs of thci'fniurdorod sons. The hands of the
terrific Robeipien! were red with tho gore of
slaughtered p jnees, and the dungeons of r ranee

Tho sultan trembled once more from iWI
to foot, and asked if his predecessors had been
told, like him, what a sad fate awaited them.
' They were all told of it,' said the wise vi
zier, ' but they nmde no good use of tlu ir
knowledge. They enjoyed the pleasure of tin
moment without thinking of the future. JS;
tho time for their dethronement came
them before they had made the slighte .1 pr,
paration for rendering their future life in the
desert island an agreeable one.'
Why, can that be done V asked the asfoii
' Surely it can,' was the reply. ' No on -hinders

the splendour thou hast left behind thee. But
hasten, hasten-Jf such is lliy intention ! Ff e
ble man is master of the present moment only,

The prudent sultan did not, like hi. prei! -cessors,
turn a deaf ear to the warning voice
of his gQOtl vizier ; without loss of time he
sent a large number of his best and most valu
able subjects to the desert island, and com
manded them to prepare a pleasant retrent ft

ful crushing sound, the red gore gushed several feet
from the .leadsman, and the beautiful head of the
French queen dropped into the bucket. The exe
cutioner seized it by the long hair, and held it with
its calm, pale features for the mob to gaze on.
Blondeville could gaze no longer, and turned from
the scene with a sickeninc: sensation. The wild

' THE SULTAN AND HIS VIZIER.
An eastern sultan, who was far from being a
way, got one day very

there he lived forever in cheerfulness and
peace, for he knew that this was his final re1-1-ing

or accident to fear. And here my tale endeth,'
