that she has had ample opportunities of ob

Impatient as the Yankees have shown them

of her foi llicoming work, it will prove that
she is as true-hearted a yaukee girl as ever
smiled. An immense edition ot the work
will be stricken oir; and no doubt as speedily
caught up by the pubiio. All we liase to say
is, that wc hope the enterprising publishers
will not keep the public one moment in un

Sometime*, I was conscious of ga
thering roughness from the continual
conflict with passion and prejudice,
and that the fine edge of the feelings
could not ever be utterly proof against
the corrosions of such an atmosphere.
Then I sought tnv home, and called n»v
bird of sonjr, and listenrd to the war
bling of her high heaven-tone voice.
The melody of that music fell upon my
soul, like oil upon the troubled bil'
lows.—and all was tranquil. 1 won
dered where my perturbations had lied,
but still more, that I had ever indulged
them: sometimes, the turmoil and fluc
tuation of the world threw a shade of
dejection over me; then it was her pride
to smooth my brow, and to restoie its
i smile. Once a sot row of no common
order had fallen upon ine. it rankled in
my breast like a dagger** point; I came

An hour had scarcely elapsed before
the lights were extinguished through
out (lie vaulted lialls of llolyrood ;
the guards were posted ft»r the night :
the wilierrs had gone their rounds: the
ladies of the royal circle were dismiss
ed and all w as darkness and silence. In
Mary s chamber a lamp was burning
in a recess before a beautifully execut
ed painting of the virgin, but the light
was nut sufficient to penetrate the ob
scurity which reigned in many aoglcs
and alcoves of that irregular apart
ment, although the moonbeams were
admitted through the open casement.
Her garb of ceremony laid aside,
her lovely shape scantily veiled by a
•ingle robe ol spotless linen, her auburn
tresses flowing in unrestrained luxu
riance.almost to her feet.if she had been
a creature ol perfect human beauty,
when viewed in all llib pomp of royal
pageantry, she now appeared a being
°r supernatural loveliness. Her smaU
white feet, unsandled, glided over the
rich carpet with a grace which a light
degree of fancy might have deemed
the inution peculiar to inhabitants of
another world. For an instant ere she
turned to her repose, she leaned against
the carved nmllions ol the window, and
gv/.ed pensively, and it might be said.
»adty upon the garden, where ahe had
so lately parted from the unhappy
youth whose life was embittered by
that very feeling which above all oth
ers should have b$cn its consolation.
W irwr Imr- ..m #1,.
light scene, she knelt before.the lamp
ami shrine which it illuminated, and
her whispered orisons arose, pure as
the source from which they flowed —
the prayer of a weak and humble mor
tal, penitent for every trival error,
breathing all confidence to him who
can alone protect or pardon—the pray
ers of a C^ucen for her numerous chil
dren, and. last and holiest of all. wo
man's prayers for her unfortunate ad
mirer. Ves. she prsyeu for Chastelar.
that strength might be given to him
from on high to bear the crosses of a
miserable life, and that by divine mer
cy the hopeless love might be uprooted
from his breast. The words burst pas
sionately from her lips—her whole
form quivered with the excess of her
emotion, an J the big tears fell like rain
Irom her uplifted eves. While she
was yet in the very flood of passion, a
sigh was breathed, so clearly audible
that the conviction flashed like light
ning on her mind, that this most secret
prayer was listened to by other ears
than those of heavenly ministers —
I error, acute terror, took possession
of her soul, banishing, by its superior
violence, every less engrossing idea.—
She snatched up the lamp from the
niche — waved it slowly around the
chamber—and there, in the most hal
lowed spot of her windowed chamber,
a spy upon her unguarded moments,
.stouil a dark figure, Keen in that mo
| ment of astonishment and fear, as if
by instinct purely of female modesty.
sn« s::aicneu a velvet mantle from the
•eat on which it had been cast aside,
and veiled her person even before ahe
“ Oh C«od ! it is de Chasfclar. ”
> ” Siwtet Queen,” replied the intru
der ; “ bright,beautiful ruler of my des

** M hat ho!” she screamed in notes
of dread intensity. ** My guards!_
Scyton -Carmichel- Fleming—will ve

ery and black dishonor .' — Villain !—
slave!”-»he cried, turning her llsshin"
eye upon In n. her whole form *\vc!lc7
as it were with all the fury of injured
innnccnco—“did#*t thou dare to think
that Marv, the wife of Franii*. the a
nointed Queen of Scotland, would brook
thine infamous addresses—Nar, kneel
not, or I spurn thee—what hof will no
one aid in mins extremity
*• Fear nought from me,” faltered
• lie wretched Chastclar; but with a
voice like that of some inspired I’ythv
oncss. she broke in—**Fear! thinks*!
thou that I could fear a thing, an ahject
coward, like thee?—a wretch that
would exult in the infamy of one lie
pretends to love? Fear thee!—by
heavens, if I could have feared, con
tempt must have forbidden it.”
M Nay. Mary, hear me! hear but
one word, if that word coats »ny life—”
Thy life! had*; thou ten thousand
lises, they would be but a feather in the
4r*le against thy monstrous villanv!
What ho!” again she cried, damping
with impotent anger at the delay of
her attendant*-** Treason! My guard*'
At length the passages rang with the
hurried footttrps of the startled in
mates nf the palace : with torch and
brandished blades they rushed into the
apartment—page. sentinel, and cham
berlain—ladias, with disheveled hair,
xnd faces blanched with terror, 'The
Qieen stood erect in the centre of the
room, pointing with one arm. bare to
the shoulder, towards the wretched
culprit, who, with folded arms and
head erect, awaited his doom in unre
sisting silence. Ills naked rapier,
w ith which alone lie might have foiled
the united efforts of his enemies, lay at
his fret; his brow was white as sculp
, tured marble, and no less rigid, bat hia
eyes glared wildly, and hia lips quiv
ered as though he would have spoken.
The (jucen. still furious at the wrong
. which lie had done her fame, marked
the expression. ** Silence!” she cried—
** Degraded ! would'st thou meanly
heg thy forfeited life ? Wert tbou my
father, thou should’st die to-morrow !
' lienee with the villain! Hid Maitland
execute the warrant. Ourself, ourself
will sign it. Awrav! Chastclar dies at
day break!”
I is well, replied ha calmly, it is
well—the lips 1 love best pronounce
my doom, and 1 die happy, since I dir
lor Mary ! \\ ould»*t thou but pity the
offender while thou dost doom tlie of
fence, tie Chastclar would nut exchange
his shortened span of life anil violent
death for the brightest crown in Chris
tendom. My limbs may die, but m)
| love will live forever! Lead on. ran
1 nions—I am more glad to die than ye
! toslay! Mary, beautiful Mary, think!
J think hereafter upon Chastclar!”
The guards passed onward—last of
the group, unfettered and unmoved, de
Chastclar stalked after them. Once,
ere he stooped beneath the low brow
ed portal, he paused, placed both hands
on his heart, bow ed low ly, and pointed
upwards as he chauntcd the words,'
"Feme* a moi—Noble Dame—Pen
tez a moi.” As he vanished fiom her
presence, she waved her hand impa
tiently to be left alone ; and all night
alone s!ic traversed and re-travtrtpil
tlio floor of her chamber in paroxjtms
of the fiercest despair. The warrant
was brought to her — silently, sternlv,
she traced her signature beneath it :
not a sign of sympathy was on her pal
lid features, not a tremor shook her
frame; she was passionately majestic
and unmoved. The Secretary left
the chamber on l.is fatal errand, and
! Mary was again a woman. Prostrate
| upon her couch she lay, sobbing and
weeping as though her very soul was
; bursting Irom her bosom, defying all
| consolation, spurning everv ofli-r at
remedy. - Tis done !” she would say;
| " ft* done.' I have preserved my fame.
' anil murdered n» v only friend.”
1 he morning dawned slow Iv, and
the heavy bells of all the churches
clanged the death pcsl of dc Chastelar.
1 he tramp ol the cavalry defiling from
the palace gates struck on her heart as
though each hoof dashed on her bosom.
An hour passed away; the minute bells
still tolling : the roar of a culverin
' swept heavily downwards from thecas
tie, and all was over! He had died as
he had lived, undaunted — as he had
j lived, devoted! •* Mary,divine Mary,”
; were his last words—**1 loved in death
as 1 have loved in life ; thee and theo
only!” The a\e drank his blood, and
the Queen of Scotland had not a truer
