Regularin his habits, he was rarely out al ter ten o'clock, on any occasion. Rut this time, ten came, aud eleven, but he was still away. This was a circmnstauce so unusual, that his wife could not help feeliug a degree of uneasincss.

But she waited in vaiu, and at last re-entcred the house with a troubled feeling. At last the clock struck twelre, and almost at thc same time sltc hcard her husband at the door. endeavoring to open it with a dead-latch key. In this he was not successful, frnm some cause, andthinking that she might have turncd thc key, Mrs. Peters wentquietly and opeued the door for him. She found that she had not locked it. As she lifted thc latch, the door was sudden ly agaiust hcr, and her husband came stagger-in- in.

Aftcr placiug the prisoners under guard, tho oOiccrs proccedcd to cxaminc thc building. They passed thro' room aftcr room, found altars, and crucifixes, and wax candlcs in ahundancc, btitno cvidcnccs ofthe iniqui ty which it was supposcd had beeu perpetra tcd there. There was bcauty and spleudor, and the most pcrfcct ordcr. The architect ure and the proportions were perfect. The ccilings aud lloors werescoured and liighly polished. The marlile floors wcre arranged with a perfect strictness lo order. There was everythiug to please tlic cye and gratify a cultiratcd taste; but they searchcd in vain for those horrid instrumeuts of which they had becn told, and fur thc dungcons in which human bcings wcre said to bc buricd alive 1 Justas they werc on the point of giving up thc search, thc oflicer ncxt iu commaml to Col. L. proposcd that water should bc pourcd ou thc marblc floors. This was no sooncr done than they found a place wherc the water ran in freely hetwccn the seams of thc polished slabs. While endeavoring to raise this one of the soldters struck the slab with the butt of his musket, and touched a spring which causcd it to fly up. They found here a stair-casc, and taking candlcs procced cd clonn and the following is the dcscription of thcir cxamination, which coming from the oflicer in ccmmand himsclf, wc prcsumc must be nuthcntic : " Under the fioor was a ticht ceilins; cxcept at the trap door, which could not be rendcr edclose; heccc the succcss by Col. Life's experiment. As wc rcached the foot of the stairs, we entcred a large square room, which was called thc 1 1 all of Judgmcnt. In thc ccntre of it was a large block, and a chain fastcned to it. On this they wcre accustom cd to place thc accused in his scat. On oue side ofthe room was one elevatcd seat, callcd the Tlirone of Judgmcnt. This the Inquisi tor generally occupicd, and on eitlier side werc scats less elevated for the Holy Father nhen cusaccd in thc solcnm business ofthe Holy Inquisitor. From the room wc pro bccdcd to the right and obtaiucd access to smallcells, cxteuded the entirc length ofthe ediflce; and here what a sight met the cye!

To prevcnt this practicc becomiug offcnsive to those who occupicd thc Inquisition, there were flues or tubes exteuding to the open air, sufiicienily capacious to carry off the odor from those tlecayin, bodics. In these cells we : found ne who had paid the debt thc reinains of some nf nn..,ro. cnmnnflhpn, lia.l hn Pn,t n. of nature; some of them had becn dead ap- parenty but a sliort time, while others not h- ing remained of them exccpt the bones, still chaiucd to the floor oftbeir dungeons.

The cncmies of the Tariff, and the advo- catcs of Frce Trade. in the North and in the South, have urccd as one arjumcnt in favor of its repcal, that Great Britain was about to auohsh or modify her C.orn Laws amt pursue a more liberal policy towards ihoscjiations with wliom she had commercial intcrcourse. We arc aware that much has becn said there upon thc subjcct, aud for a time deirroustra tions ofa sumingly favoruMc character were made. But, we never for a moment allowed ourself to believe that she had a scrious dc sign of changing that policy, which shc has ptirsned ever since she bccame a mannfactu ring nation.
