To give only one or two instances of
the manners and ideas of the age in
which Queen Mary’s lot wap cast. It
i« generally known that Henry VIII pu*
seventy-two thousand persons, of a!? re
ligious pursuasions, to death on the
scaffold, during his single reign; but it is
equally well known that his daughter
Elizabeth had an array of three hundred
heads of persons, convicted of high
treason, placed on London bridge, in
cluding those of her cousin and freind*
Norfolk, and her favorite, romantic lov
er, Essex ; and, so far fom being Shack
ed at the ghastly array, -she took the
foreign embassador to see it, in order to
show hoS “we serve traitors in Eng
land." Protestant historians have re
counted, with just indignation, that the
bloody Mary cast tw«* hundred and for
ty men, women, and children into the
flames during her breif and attrocious
reign; but they have not equally prom
inently brought forward, that a greater
number of priests and Catholic partisans

was not worth looking at.** /
And when the frantic assassin, Ra

of Louvre, to undergo during four hours
the most frightful tortures which human
ingenuity or malignity could devise, all
the ladies of the port of Paris assembled
to witness the spectacle; and as high

Shortly after! o’clock, on Friday af£
ternoon, an explosion took place in tl
coal pit near Ashtott; by which it was at
once apprehended that more than thirty
persons must have lost their lives, ail#
there no longer exists any hope that the
estmiate was an exaggeration. This
deplorable accident occurred at the
KeyeS Colliery; within half a mile of
Ashton Town Hall. There are fiya
seams in the colliery, but only two of
the m lately have been worked, and
these are destingii iahed as the “two fear
mines," and the “new mines." There
are three shafts, one up cast and tww
downcast. At 6 o’clock in the mooring
fifteen men descended to work in the
two feet mine, which is about 165 yards l
down, and another party, whose norm*
ber was between 30 and 40, descended
the No. 1, downcast shaft to work in thp
new mine, which is 225 yards down
There appears to have been not the
least alarm until at the time stated the
neighborhood was thrown idto constern
ation by the noise of an explosion In the
No. 1 down cast shaft, which shook the
houses near the pit, and was board ''-{lotr
a very considerable distance around.——
Almost at the same instant ah; immense
qu:mti.y of dust and smoke was shot up
with such force as to break Ifte ire*
plating at the mouth of the pit. > •
