She was charged witli itaving dilapidated the finances, wfth'plottlng against the nation, with haVTnir" caused a famine, and various, other political offences.'

At "eleven toe executioner came, bound her, hands, and led ,her to the cart.

The countenance of .Marie Antoinette exhibited the greatest emotion when on entering the Place da la Revolution,sbe beheld the palace and gardens of tlie Tuileries; but she soon resumed her calmness.-aBd, -aided by. the' priest and executioner, quicklj' ascended the scaf fold.

With her tlie female morality of the I French, Court was restored, m far as a Queen could restore it; and to that fact amongst man' others, she owed the death we have recorded. Dael between Bandolph. nd Clay. Hugh Garland of Virginia, in his life of John Rindolph, gives the fol lowing description of the memorable duel between the. Roanoke orator., and his gieat rival Henry Clay. "The night before the duel,' savs Gen. James-Hamilton, of S. Carolina, "Mr. Randolph sent for me. I found him calm, but in a singularly kind and confiding mood. He told ma that he had something on his mind to tell me. Ho theu remarked, 'Hamilton, I have determined to receive, without return ing. Clay's fire; nothing shall induce mo to harm a hair of his head; 1 wiil not make his wife a' widow.or his child ren orplians. Their .tears would be shed over his grave; but when the sod of Virginia rests on my bosom, theie is not in this' wide world one individual to pav this triuute upon mine His eyes filled, and resting his head upon his hand, he remained some moments silent. I replied, My dear friend (for ours was a sort-of posthumus friendship, be queathed by our mothers,) I deeply re gret that you have mentioned this sub- Jject to me; for yon call upon meio go to the field and see you shot down, or . t0 assume the responsibility, in regard to your own life, insustaining your de termination lo throw it away: But on J this subject, a man's own conscience and his own bosom are his best nioni- , tors.

T. to allow Mr. Randolph to take his own course, as i his withdrawal as one of his-friends, USUI lt)U tu vert iihuiiuu ihisuuii- . i- j . ::..: :,. structions. At last, Mr. B. smiling; said , 'Well Tattaall, I promise you one ihing. if 1 3ee the devil in Clay's eye.and lhat with maliee prepense he meaos to take my life, I may ch ingo my mind.1 A remark I knew he made merely to pro-pitiate-'theanxiotis ofhisfriead. "Mr. C. and himself met at 4 o'clock the socaeeding evening on the batiks of the Potomac. .But be saw 'no devil in o Clay's eye, bat a roan fearless, and ex pressing the mingled sensibility and firmness which belonged to the occa sion. "I shall never. forget tins asene, as long'as I live. It has beep my misfor tune to witness several ducls.but I nev er saw one, at least in its sequel, so deeply affecting. The sun was just set ting behind the blue hills of Randolph's own Virginia. Here were two of the most extraordinary man oar country had produced about to meet iu mortal combat. WbiUt Tattnall was loadtog KatWolph's pistols I approached my friewo. IJelievedTfor the last time; I toolLbis hand; there was not in its touch the qaivering cf one pulsation. He turned to me'and said, 'Clay is calm, btttnot.TiwiieHve I bold my purpose, Hamilto,rnaBj event, remember this.' OaTiaBding him his pistols Col. Ttlna!l apug4h-bair-trigger Mf,rRajplph theu rose 'and calail said, 'Tartnall.althongh I aqi.one ofjthw best shots in Virginia, "with either pisrol or gun, yet 1 never fire with the hair ,r'Sger'" besides I have a thick' buek skiu glove on, which will destroy the delicacy of my touch, nnd the trigger may fly before I know where' f 'am.' Put, from his great solicitude for 'his friend, Tattnall insisted upon hairing the trigger'. On taking their position; as Mr. Randolph anticipsjedbis pistol wenttoft 'before i thVwora with the muz zle down." ' '' e ''TIio moment this event took place General Jessap, Mr. Clay's friend, call ed out that he would instantly leavo the ground with his friend, if lhat occur red again. Mr. Clay at once exclaim ed, it was entirely an accident, and beg ged that the gentleman might be allow ed to goon. On the word being given,' Mr. Clay fired without effect Randolph discharged his pistol in the air. The moment Mr. Clay saw .that Mr. Ran dolph had thrown away hU fire, with a gush of sensibility, he instantly ap proached Mr. Randolph, and said with emotion I never can forget: 1 trust in God, my dear sir, you are untouched, after what bas occurred, i would not have harmed you for a thousand worlds ' Thus ends this affair.. None but the uncharitable will believe, after what has passed on the -field, that Itandolph had any malicious motive in the words that fell from him on the floor of the Senate. Had a bloodthirtsly spirit burned in his bosom, 'the best shot in Virginia' would not have permitted this, opportunity to escape of levelling his weapon at the, breast of an old rival, whose ponderous blows he had fell for fifteen years, nnd whose political opinions he considered so dangerous to the cottntiy. The true character of the man shone forth when he declared hi intention. not to injure a .hurry .except w here occasion perempto r of Mr. CIny's head and a susli of rilJ "demands it.

Mr. Chy had a wife and children to mouru his loss; but there was not one to shed a tear over his solitary crave. He knew the : laafe'y of his adversary but with the immediate prospect of death Lofore him, the sublime drains of lite godlike Milton attuned his heart to softest in fluences; and.the chords of affection to ( long silent and rusted by the chilling breath of a'cbld world, awakened bv the soft echoes of long past memories, now vibrated a sweet, though mourn ful melody that mingled its harmonious notes with the divine song of the poet: 'HoW taourofulty sweet are tlte echoes tbat start Whun'memory plays an old tune on the heart.." John Randolph was not understood. Many who profess to know him, and who considered themselves hi fiionds, could not comprehend "the hair trig get" sensibility of the man. A few days after this affair, "Friday morning, April 14, 1826," he wrote thus to his friend, Dr. Brock'enbrough: "1 cannot write I tried yesterday j to answer your letter, but' I could not do it. My pen choked, the huslcria pasbio of poor old Lear came over. me. 1 left a letter for you in case of the worst. It now lies on my mantelpiece.

But when a man comes home from the strife and conflict of this wicked world, and its vile and sinful inhabitants, it is then that a certain tone of voice an averted look or even the sweet austaro composure of our first mother, cuts him to the heart in the-reeeplion of thewife of his bosom.

An Anecdote By Webe'r. -Daniel Webster used to relate the following anecdote of Father Sarb,the minister of his boyhood: "As was the custom of those days the old gentleman used .to wear buck skin breeches in cold weather, and get ;timjout hi3 pair one Sunday aiorning from an attio in which they bad been .bunjriui: nil summer, found a nest cf wasps in them. By diligent -labor he succeeded in removing the intruders, as he supposed, and started for church. Just as he was in the middle nf the ser vice, some of the insects still remaining crave him a pierce, which caused him to jump nnd slap his thigh.

In this garden I found Jacko, living in a cane cage, next door to a porcu pine: there were also some- rare birds. Further oa some very small Brahmin bulls, a Oishuiure goat, and a family of I young kangaroos. There were all soils oi ueauuiui no were piacea aooui in enormous Chinese vases. Here I first saw the tea plant growing. It is of the catnelia tribe; three or four' feet high, perhapsand bears a (mall white flow er like t com mom rose. Also. I was shown the "moon flowers," a kind of rounded cunvolrultrs' that only opens at night. There was a power of "monk ey cubs," the pitcher flower, which collects water, and from which Jauko refreshed himself in the jungles. The fan palm produced water un being pier ced with a penkniff, of a clear, cold quality. Several miattie'ereepccs were trained over wite fcrms lo imitate dra gons, with egg shells for their eyes, and there were miny of the celebrated dwarf trees, the firs I had 'seen, little oans and elms,, about eighteen incite highi like small withered old men. The house here was superbly famished in the English style, buf with lanterns all around it. At six o'clock the guests arrived mostly English all dressed in short, white jtckets aad irowsers. The dinner was, admirably served, iu oud London style, nnd all appointments as regarded plate, dishes, glass, and wines perfect. -Thostquie', attentive waiting of the Cliituse boys deserved all praise.
