From the Dublin University Magazine.
The Last Victim of the Scottish
boilinjr blood pradunlly subsided, and his
pas.ion cooled in tho presence, of death.
The whole thing had taken place so sud
denly, that he could hardly behove the
livinir, breathing man he had been talking
to ao amicably but a few moment bol'oro,
was I y i i ) tr there murdered by his own
hand. Hut suddenly, as ho p:iz"d, ho felt
his flesh creep with a strange horror, as
he raw tho soulless eyes of the blind
maiden upturned towards him as she knelt
on tho ground hy her dead father, towards
whom alio crept with a ftop so stealthy
that he had not heard her. Hamilton
drew back, shuddorinrr, from tho fixed
stnre; ao dreadful seemed the expression
ol hnto on her white, irhastly face; but as
ho rece.Ied, sho crept towards him on her
knees, and laid bur hand, which .ho had
steeped in her father' Muud, on his, till
it bore tho same red stain, and said, in a
low Btifled voice: "You have murdered
him, and you shall die for it. Nono saw
tho murder, for my blind eyes saw it not;
but think not to escape; the vengeance of
Heaven will track you out one day."
Then flinirinir nn her arms to heaven, sho
exclaimed, "My father, O, my futher !"
and lull upon tho curpso with a .brick so
wild and picrciiift, that Hamilton felt aa if
it must have ruiir upon tho curs of every
person in tho town, ontl reached even
through tho massive walls of Inrerary
That cry recalled him to himself; he
must cscapo right speed ly, or another mo
ment would see him surrounded by those
whum it must rotwr; tho instinct of self
preservation at o.ico took place of every
other feeling, and wilh one bound he dart
ed to tho other door, opened it, rushed to
tlio ntuUlo. mount 'U In nurse without sad-

that the inhabitants heard of him as they
rushed to tho inn, whence tho blind girl's
shrieks were still heard echoing.
Hamilton never slackened his nuro till
ho had laid ten miles hetweon him and
Inverary. In those days, tho com so
justice was a. stum as it was summary
and he felt well assured that tho present
Marquis of Argylo.the youugor brother of
, louiiu out mo niuruercr ot n.s retainer, es-
pociulty when ho hartl from ENjH'tlt the
circumotancoi ol uis dcuth; auu it ho nuc-

cccded in hi. aearcb, the aervioc. of the
"maiden" would right speedily bo called
into action for Kenelm him.olf.
When at last he ventured, under cover
of . dark fire wood, to too h.s furiuu.

mean, of avoiding discovery, with no
small axiety as to the issue. II is best1
hope was In the fact, that none had been
present during the murder but the blind
girl, who could not identify him, and thut
not a single inhabitant of Inverary had
seen him, except her head father himself.
He waa now not very fur from tlie house
of hia kinsman, whore he originally in
tended to havo passed tho night. The
time ho had spent so fatally in tho inn
Invarary had not extended beyond an
hour, and tho rapid pace at which he had
traversed tho last ten mile, had fully
brought him to the timo when ho would,
according to hi ordinary stylo of travel
ing, havo reached hia destination. Ho
therefore resolved ta proceed thither
once, as if ho were only arriving from tho
village whore he hud li lt his servants, and
to truit that no ono would ever suspect
him of having made his unlu. tu.iuU) uVtour
.... i . n.i - ,
intothe domain of his enemy. Ihi. plan
succeeded purftxtly, ho was expected
his cousin, and the next morning In. ser
vant joined him, having left his comrade
doing well; so that no doutit was for
moment entertained that he had ever de
viated from tho road he had been expect
ed to take, and lie had once mora started
for Edinburgh bofore tlie nows of
murder had spread beyond Inverary.
Nevertheless, whon the fact did become
kn.wn.it created a great sensation, chief-
, . i-
to owing to the peculiar circumstances
he cae-a murder committed by an uh-,,.
known assassin in presence ol oue sole
witueas, and that one deprived of the pow
er of seeing tho murderer, ws. even
tluwo day. of bloodshed, a striking event,
and the mysterious escapo of the criminal
seemed altogether unaerounUihle.
Thn Mnrnuiil nf Arirrlp. al.il w... nt
cimtle on the fatal night, left no stone un-
in hia pfTort to discover thn n.irtin.
tretor of tho deed; being stimulated to
activity in tho search, by the strong
suspicion he entertained that the assassin
was in some way connected with the fam
ily of his foes, the Hamilton. This
gathered from the conversation between
the murderer and his victim, whii h
peth detailed word for word; hut it ufford
ed no clue whatever to the actual iudivid-
les. and aJllicU'd of tho dun to find
fuga with the fuuilly of t!iir chuf,
ual, and Keuoliu himself was never
After a few week, of nseleas investiga
tion, the search was given up; but the
of the murder were carefully record
ed by the court of justice, and the Lord
Argylo declared that .1 ever in Ins nn
tho uod.ismn wero discovered, ho would
bring him to tho scall'old, be the interval
ever ao long. Elspeth found a home

heard it through the firinif of the salutes

which wcro snout at one of tho continen

with his wifo and family lo Kdinhurp, the
murder of tho inkeepcr had not been
tho'ijrht of by any one for a long time
One day, about a month after his arriv
al in the Hcottisli capital, Hamilton was
walking along Wo most tssbioiiahlo part
of tho old tow n, when) the houses of the
nobility wero chiefly to bo found, when
oneiuion w.n niiriu u u l.y a iray,

furry of tho lads was o great, that it was
evident some serious mischief would en
sue if they were not a parated. Hamil
ton, whose rank in the o ty entitled htm
to interfere, at once rushed in botweon
them, calling to them in a loud voica to
desist Immediately from further quarrel-

The affair had collected a cotmidernlilo

wore well known amongst them an that

The Democratic Doctrine.
Mr. Buchanan, in his letter to Prof.
Billiumn in June, 1857, said "Slavery ex
isted in Kansas uuiL r the Conttittition of
the VnitrdStatei" and in his special Kan
sas Men-age to Congress he declared that
Kalian waa 'at that moment as much t
Slave State as Georgia or South Carolina.'
Tho Washington Constitution, tho apo
dal organ of tho President, in a rccont
number lays down tht following doctrine
at a natural eorollnry of Mr. Buchanan'
admission. We commend tho doctrine
to our "squatter sovereignty" friends who
opposo a Sluvo code for Iho Territories,
a. a molter worthy of their attention.
Hero is the article from the Cotuliua'on
"The Constitution recognize, the right
