TRANSLATED FROM ALEXANDER DUMAS, BY ALFRED GAUDELET. (CONCU'llKU.) CHAPTER III. Juan Pnsquale wished to remonstrate os to the shortness of the liine granted him, but the kini would not hear him, and left the apartment. ' The primer ctsiftm! r returned home, with busy thoughts and found the uitlit nuard.who after picking tip the body of Antonio, hd comu la make their report; but this report did uot throw any light on the subject, mid Juan P.isquole rep ir d instantly to the spot where the inuidt-r had been committed. The street was tilled with people gar.iiie; anxiously upon a stone stained with the blood of poor Anton io. The primer atsittcnte inquired of everyone, but could receive no new information. He visited the adjoining houses, but to no bettor purpose. Pasquale retuined lo his house, in hopes that some discoveries had bten made du ring his absence. Hut noihing new had been heard. The wotcii testified that they had found Antonio still holding his swnnl iu his hand, which nroved that he had died while defending himself. Rut who was his murder er 7 Juan Pasquale spent the day in vain conjectures, and the night passed, without bringing anyltiing new to liu'ht. At day-break lie rueived an order to repair to the palace. "Well," inquired Don Pedro, "do you know the a-vsassin t" "Not yet, my lord, but I have set on foot the most uctive investigations." "ou l.nve two more --" ....... .-e king, and he re-enter' .. his apartment Junii Pasquale spe .1 the day in making fresh inquiries, but with no lieltcr success, and the next mor.'iiiit' was again summoned into the king's presence. "Well, anything new f" asked Don Pedro. "Nothing, my lord," replied Pafqtinle.nmre ashamtd of the vain attempts lie had made, than anxious for his own safety. "One more day is left," replied the king, coldly. "It is more than such a skillful judge as you are, should require to discover a mur derer." And he retired. : In the evening, Juan Pasquale, who "had only the night left, resolved once more to visit the spot where the murder had been perpeira-te-JS, thinking that it must he from that place or its neighborhood that he could most likely obtain some inlormation. He found the mur der of Antonio Mendez already entirely for gotten, and the stone still red with the blood of the victim, was the only testimony left the deed. " While Juan Pasquale was buried in deep thought, revolving in his mind the strange mystery which seemed to surround the whole affair, he heard a voice calling; him, and saw an old woman beckoning to him from an win dow of an adjoining house, as though she had someihing to sny to him. In the situation in any information whatsoever eight be accept- which the judge round himself, he thought able. He therefore advanced towards the window; tut nt the same momenta key full at his feet.nnd the window wns closed. Pas quale understood that the old woman did net want to be seen, and picking up the key, he opened the door of the house, carefully closed it behind him, and ascending a durk staircase, soon found himself in the presence of the old woman, who motioned to him to walk iu and close the door behind him. "It was you, my good woman, who made me a sign to come up was it not?" inquired Pasquale. "Yes," she replied, "fori guessed what you were looking for." "And can vou give me the information which I seek ?" "Perhaps, if you will promise not to betray me." "I promise not to, an I besides, I will give you a large reward." "Oh, it is not so much the prospeci of remark which neveitheless will ilo me harm, for I am not rich as the fear of seeing such a good man as you, in trouble, which bus determined me to leveul what 1 know. Every one has heard of what your fate is to be, you do not find out the murderer before to morrow; and what would become of poor Se ville, when deprived of its good judge V "Well, then good woman, speak ! In the name of Heaven, tell me what you know !' 'Well, then, 1 must tell you," continued the old woman, "that the house opposite be longs to Count Sallusiic de ilaro." "1 know it," "It was inhabited by lib sister, Dona Leon ora." I know that, also." Well, the setiorn loved a handsome cava lier, who used to come to visit her every even ing and clap three times with his hand- for ad initlance." "Then?,' "Then the door was opened and the cavalier was admitted." "What next!" "Yesterday morning, the brother, v.hoprcb nbly had good ieasons tor it, came and took his sister away, leaving no one in the house bat an old uurse, whom he directed not to ad mil any one in the house during his absence. So that, wheu the young cavalier piesented himself, last evening, he found the dour closr ed." ' "Continue, I am listening." "Well, as that did not suit the young cava lier, and as the old governess, faithful to order she had received, refused to admit him, he attempted to burst open the door." "At) I ah 1 violence 1" exclaimed . Pasquale. "It was at that time that poor Antonio pre sented himself, and tried to induce him to re Uie, but the cavalier would uot listen to rea son, and, drawing his sword, he killed Anto nio," ; "Upon my soul, these particulars are worth hearing !" exclaimed Pasquale. "Rut the cav alier, who is be If.'. : , The oavaliert'? . "Yes, who came thus every f Aening ?" , , "The cavalier who killed Antonio 1" ., "Of Couise: but who is he who killed An tonio T" , "Well, it is " ' "It iat". , "The king V said the old woman. " i he king I" exclaimed Juan Pasquale. "The king himself 1" . .. 'You saw his face, then t" . , . ''No",.. ... .. " , ; ' ."Then you heard kis voice f . , "Nol". ... ' , ' '"' ' "Well, fcow could you recognixo aim ?' "By the crackingof hisbouesaa he walked." '"It is true !" exclaimed the iudee: "I have noticed myfolfllie sintn liirity. Woman, you will receive this evening, the reward I prom lcti. "And you will keep the secret?" "Strictly, upon my honor." "May God preserve you, my lord iuiV'e.nnd grant you long life !' then Juan Pasquale, taking leave of the old woman, returned to h is palace, and sent tnsiaiiitv a messeneer to the Alcazar. It was a summons to Don Pedro, aKiug of Castile, to appear before the tribunal of the printer ujjis- :twe ot the city of Sevill ! CHAPTER IV. of a no if i Earlt the next nwrningJuan Pasquale con voked the trilun.il of the viutiijualwt, with out infutining them for what purpose thev were assembled. All wore the great costume of their charge, and the primer ussistente pre sided over ihem, wilh the rod of justice in his hand. An usl.er announced the king. All ruse astonished. down, gentlemen," said Juan Pas- qunle. They obeyed and the kiiij? entered. "V eli, seiior ataisU nU," said Don Pedro, "what is your pleasure ? for you See that 1 hasten to your call, although your sumitxins uiigl.Wmve been trausmilied tuu.e with u lit tle more respect or politeness." "Sire," replied Pasquale, "we have not to deal with respect or politeness just now, but wilh justice. I am not acting now as a king's courtier, but os a magislrute of the people." "Well, what will thou wiih me?" "Sire," continued Juan i'qualu, "a mur der was committed on Friday night. Your highness is aware of it, since I received my first information ("ruin you." "What next?" "Your highness gave rce three days to dis cover the murderer." "And" "And," taid Pasquale, lookins steadfastly in ie kind's face, "1 have discovered him !" "Hj: ha !" said the king laughin,'. "And I have summoned hiin to appear be fore my tribunal, because lustice is the same for the strong as for the weak, for the great as ilie small mug Dun Pedro, of Uis'.i e, you are accused of murder on tne person of Anto nio Meudti, captain of the night watch for the district oi La Uiralda. Answer to the tribunal." "And who dares to accuse me f" asked the king. "I !" rejoined Pasquale. "And if the king of Pasquale should plead not guuiy i" Then he will be submitted to the trial ol the coflin. The body of Antonio Mendez has been preserved for that nurpase." 'That was useless," replied Don Pedro, in a light manner; "1 killed the man." "i rirgret, saiu Juun fa quale, in a grave manner, "mat tee King ot uastile should ap pear to aUno.b so little importance to the mur der of one of his subjects, especially when the muruer was cumimtietl with Ins own hands." "Softly, senor umttentt," replied Don Pe dro, obliged to defend himself; "Fofily, there is no mu pier here, but a simple combat. I did not assassinate Antonio Mendez. I killed him ic self-defence." "There ean be no self defence against an K .mS? HH"! i ilut his zeal may have caused him to for get himself," replied Don Pedro. "The law is not so subtle, sire," replied the ussisti'iiff, in a firm voice, "and from yourown coulessions, you stand convicted of murder." "It is f.lse, wretch !" exclaimed the king. "I acknowledge that I killed the man, but i warned him before, and ordered him to retire. Then the fool drew his sword, and 1 killed him. ho much the worse for him. hy did he refuse to obey my orders ?" "Because it belonged to ycu, sire, to obey him, instead of olferiiig him a culpable resist ance. Oh, threats cannot prevent me from fulfilling n;y terrible duties. When, witnout consulting me about it, you took me from my mountains, and made me primer ussistcnt', it was not to have a courtier, but a judge. Well you stand berore the judge: what have you to answer?" I have said all I have to say," replied the King. "Then listen to our decision !" The eyes of Don Pedrosparkled with pride; he placed ins Hand upon the guard of his sword. Juan Pasquale continued: "To-morrow, at noon, Don Pedro of Castile, I summon you to repair to the squaro of La Giialda, she nearest one to the spot where the crime was comiuit'ed, to listen and submit to the sentence which justice shall fiud proper to pronounce; and as you prize the mercy of God, fail not to re, air thither with such feelings as should fill the heart of the guilty but repent ant. And having thus spoken, in a slow but firm voice, Juan Pasquale motioned to the king to retire, nun rising nimseii, lie Jell ir.e court lot lowed by the viiUiqutaroi. 1 he first feeling of Don Pedm had been thai of anger; the next wa3 that of admiration. At that pericd, the king of Castile was still the first half of his life; he had beensurnamed e .', and his heart was still susceptible ofbeini; moved by a noble example unheard oi an unexpected to tlnd among the courtiers wnirii surrounded him a man who d;ired thus to prosecute a king who had faili-d to olisjrve the law of his kingdom. He reso.ved, there- lore, to obey the summons Of the aiatter.te, and repair, the next day, attired in the insig nia of his supreme rank, to the phice of La Giralda. Perrand de Castro, and Jjan Padil la were alone to accompany him, dot wishing a larger esc9rt, for fear he might bo suspected of being intimidated. The new of this extra ordinary trial socn spread through Seville, and excited the surprise of all. The summons sent to the kiiig; the obedience of Don Pedro to one of his magistrates, he so accustomed to command; the firmness of the judge, who had dared to brave the kirtg'sauthorlty everything announced for the next one "of those solemn scenes long to be remembered by a nation. wbtretore, the whole population of Seville was seen the following morning rushing to wards tne square or La uiraiaa. Dun Pedro, with his companions, was am- etly awaiting the hour at which he was to ap peaf to hear the sentence passed upon him self. His couitiers had insisted upon his taking a larger escort, but the King had re plied that he should insist rpon his orders be ing fulfilled, and that no other guards should be present but those who usually presided at the judgments of the primer attitlente. But he allowed a pozen of his oourtiers, unarmed, to ioiiow ueninu, ana mai eniy alter ne naa exacted their promise not to take any steps, whatever might happen, without an order from him. 'As soon as he appeared, the people commenced shouting In a manner whick kings seldom aocustomed to hear. Don Pedro wai hot mistakan ai to the mntive of thesa ao- climttioDs, which were called forth more by his submission and obedience, than irom re- snect for his maiestv. lie continued in a,l. vance in silence, and soon arrive on the square! where a place had been reserved for the royal party. , Iu the centre of the square, upon an eleva- ted platform, sat the tribunal of the rUdibwi-' trot, over which presided Juan Pasquale; on! their rivht stood a statr.c of the kin Don Pe-! dro, of the size oflife, and attired with allthe insignia of royal power; in front of H a scaf-j fold had been built, and the e:.ecutiouer, with his lnrt'e sword in his hand, stood motionless! upon it; in front of the scufpild was the space wmen, a we ueiore snio, nan beer, reserved for the kin; and his suite; all the rest was givea up, nud filled by spectators. As soon :.s the km appeared, a rolling of drums was heard, ami when the beating had eeascii, ,nn usner crieu out in a loud voice "Don Pedro, king of Castile !" "Here I r.at," answered the kin "what ,!n v.-M U'ikli ?'r "Sire," cnrtiiiued the usher, "vou are snin- moned to this place to hear your sentence pronounced, and see it put in extension." "iiTip'i'leiit wretch !" exclaimed Padilln. "Si.enoe !'' cried Juan Pasquale; and rising he began: "Dou Pedro, king of Dastils, vou are accu sed and convicted of voluntary murder upon the person of Antonio Jlendc. This crime deserves death." "At these words, deep groans and murnr.irs of disapprobation rose au.on' the crowd. The! people themselves thought the matter had gone too iar. "Silence!" cried Don Pedro. "Let the magistrate perform his duty." All was still. "I therefore pronounce ui on you," coniiiued' juan rasquaie, with 'lie same tirmuess, "the; sentence of death But as your pnou is s,i-1 creJ, ami as none i but Clod, who placed the crown upon your head, ha.i a right to remove it, or to touch your person, thu enleuoe will be executed upon yatir efigy. And now that I have fulfilled, to '.he extent of mv abilities, my duly, let the executioner do his " The o.tecn tinner taised his sword, and the head of the royal statue, cut above the shoul ders, rolled to the foot of the scaffold. "Now said Juan Pasquale, "let this head be placed at the corner of the street where An tonio Mtm'.cz was killed, and let it lemain there for one month, in memory of the crime of the king." Then Don Pedro alighted from his horse, ami advancing towajd Sunn Pasuuale : "Very worthy assislente of Seville, said he in a calm voice, "I rejoice that I should ever have trusted you with the administration of my justice, for no one was ever more worthy cf my confidence: let it remain entire, except that it' shall not be tor a montn only, uutlorever, mat the head cut off by the executioner's swoid shall remain exposed, to be transmitted to posterity, in memury of your wise judgment." The will of Don Pedro was executed, and, at tho present duy, a head may yet be seen, at the corner of thestreet'MOinijV'o, mid the people assert that it is the same which was placed there in 135T, by the hand of the exe-j cntioner. Such is the legend of Don Pedro, King of( Castile, as it is related by the hisloriun Zurita, in his Annals of Seville. A FLIGHT AND RESCUE. From "The Virginia Comedian;" just published by i).

We copy the following from the Cincinnati Cu'jii.V, of Tuesday: "In the Police Court yesterday, a colored man named Stewart, was arraigned on tli charge of s'ealtitg a quantity cf clothing front an elderly coloied woman. - Stewart plead guilty, and offered in mitigation that ha was out of funds and out of food, and had taken Ijus course to supply himself with the necessa ries of life, lie stated to the court that a short time since he was a slave in Paleigh, N. C. and being informed of the kind treatment he would receive from the abolitionists in tho North, if he could become a free man, he con cluded to purchase himself, and did so at the cost of 000. He left his insKter and came to Ohio. "Since I came here," continued Stew art, "I have been abused and kicked about by all classes of while men. Can't sc. wotk, and to borrow money to buy bread villi, that is out of the question. I wish 1 were a, slave aL'ain. I did a great deal better there than I did here." Here the defendant took his seat to await the deoisiuu of the court, which was that he be sent to lh'.' chaiu gang at hard la bor for one month, and pay the cost of prose- ecutton. Stewart said he did not mmd the hard labor, and wns thankful of trie prospect of getting something to eat in jail. . lie de clared that as soon as he got out ho would go south und become a slave ngain. 3"0ii Saturday last, nn Irishman, living a little west' of the railroad bridge at Terra Haute, threatened to cut his wife'a throat. She deemed it prudent to anticipate him, and, so, struck law with an ax, settling the, whole width of it through his skull. In this conation walked across the bridge and about a mile, falling and rising several times, till he reach ed a physician's where his awful wound was dressed. There ia a chance thai he "may re cover. The criminal wns a young and stout man of ginger bread complexion, and strongly marked with iiegroe . feature, having a large mouth, thick lips, and a physiognomy indicative of great stupidity. It was evident, from his look, and demeanor, at the gallows, that he had not sufficient mind to comprehend and - mine. his awful situation. From the first to the last he exhibited not the slightest sensibility, but. yielded to the awnil penalty witn asmucu coolness and composure as if assigned an or dinary duty of every day life.
