Gloves were known in England so long
bo as tbo tonth century, for a company
erf German plovers, who carried on a trade
between their own country and Germany,
solicited the protection of King JEthelred
11, by presenting him with five pairs of
One of the earliest uses of gloves was to
prelect the wrist, upon which lords and
faJies carnal their favorite hawk when

ford returned from Itily he brought with
htm "gloves, sweste bagger a perfumed
leather jerkin, and other pleasant things."
In order to make lits court with Q leen

The Qaeen took such pleasure in thoe
gloves that sho was piston! with them
upon her handt, and for many years after
ilwas called 'the Eiri of Oxford's per
fame." I suppose most of my readers
are familiar with Lgigh Hunts pleasant
little poem about King Francis and the
lions, and how tho king reproved the van
ity and heartlessness of vabdUdamt mm
tiT'iri, who Hang her glove into the arena
in order to make her lover go and fetch it.
Bit here is a story of Shakespeare and the
MudtHiQieen that is perhaps less gene
rally known. Q.ioon Elizabeth is said to
have been the wearer of gloves of a very
costly description. Shakespeare was once
acting in her presence the part of a king
or his own makicg; and so careful -was
La of the illusion of the scene that he for
fpt all other things besidos. Tho Virgin
Q leen resolved to put him to the proof,
and as the mimic king passed before her.
he dropped one of her gloves. Shake
cpjms, faithful subject as wall as actor,
immediately paused, and with the words
that, although bent on this high embassy,
ret btoop we to pick up our cousin's glove,"
Iij pmsaatel it to the real queen, then
pised on. D'lsraol talks of glove money"
and dafines it as money given to servants
to bay gloves," bat Dr Djran gives it an
other signification, and tells at the earns
timiaffistorv of Hjnry VILTs chan
ollor, SirTnomi MDre. "Gloves," says
the Dj;tor, "wens pjpalar Nj-v Yeir's
gifts, or somatimss 'glove money in place
of them; occasioaally thnso gloves carried
irld pieces in them. Vfaen Sir Thomas
Aljre was Climcellor he deodel a case in

will betow eUawhsre." Tile king and his
favoarite Wolsloy, when ther mid3 that
migaiticent display on the Field of the
Cloth of Gjld, wore gloves lined with
white silk and most beautifully ornament
ed with embroidery and precious stones. In
each mare historical gossip as this one
is nt expected to follow exact chron.
logical order, and I may ba excused
if I tro back from Hanry VIII to the
fir tea alb century. Elward,sonof Richard,
Dakeof York, was one of the cruelest
usurpers that ever disgraced a throne.
Not content with robbing Hjnry VI of his
kingdom, he insulted and inardered every
msmber of the royal family upon whom
ha coald lay hauls. His reception of the
high-spirited young El ward, is a stain
tipoa his charactertbat nothing can efface.
After the battle of Tewkesbury, the young
prince El ward was brought into the king's
presence, who asked him how he dared to
oma into his kingdom inarms! Heboldly
reohed: "Icame to recover my father's
kingdom," upon which Eiwardstruck him
in the face with his gauntlet, and the
Dikes Clarence and Gloucester, with their
Attendants instautlv fell upon him with
their swords and killed him." Was ever
knightly jjlove put to so ignoble a use be
fore or since! Bat the glove was not
always used merely as & hand covering or
a fashionable adornment. They were
nude an important part of grave cerem
nials, as in the case of investitures, or in
conferring diirmties. or on other great and
solemn occasions. D'Israeli gives a short
account of a ceremony in which a glove
plays & remarkable part. Ha says "The
uuiurvauaia januin was uputu ui u
crown and his life bv the nsurDer. Main-
froy. When, having ascended the scaffold,
da injure! prince lamenting his hard fate,
assarted his right to the crown, and, as a
token of investiture, threw his glove among
th 3 crowd; entreating it might be conveyed
to so-neof his relations, who would revenge
his death, it was taken np by a knight,
and bron jht to Paler, King of Arragon,
who in virtus of this glove was afterward
exowaei at Palermo." Ihave seen a very
b ji a Ufa I and striking picture of this inci
daaL I am not sure whether the ceremony
of challenging by the glove at the corona
tion of English sovereigns is yet obsolete,
but it was iu practice until very lately, and
when a judge holds a session which con
cludes' without anyone receiving a sentence
of death it is the custom that the sheriff
should present his lordship with a pair of
white gloves. It is said that gloves were
once an important item in the attire of
bishops, and that those ecclesiastical gloves
were most gorgeously adorned with gold
thread and valuable jewels. There is a
ceremony in which gloves are given as a
price for a test of bravery on a lady's part.
Should a lady find a gentleman, a yoang
and cornel y fellow of course, lying asleep
in his chair or the grass, she has only to
stoop over him and impress upon his fore
head, the gentleat, lightest, tenderest kiss,
ana sue may, n sue dare, claim as a guer
don a pair of gloves. Outgo Witaeu.
