Coming into possession of power witti
a heart fresh, tender and pure,- and with
all her -instincts inclined to mercy, we
may be sure that she found many things
that tried her strength and resolution to
the utmost. On a bright, beautiful morn,
ing tbe young Queen was waited upon
at her palace of Windsor by the Duke
of Wellington, who had brought from
London various papers requiring her
signature to render them operative
pne of them was a sentence of a court
martial, pronounced against a soldier of

and then looked upon the wondrous

" What has this man done ?'' she asked.

plied: ,. .
, Ay, my royal mistress, that man T
fear is incorrigble. He has deserted
. "And can yon not say anything in his
behalf, my lord

"O ! think again, I pray you f. " .

have the man shot in any event,, be fin'

strong emotion :

the result. A good soldier, you said.

of Congress to be redaced ? " Nearly
half of the voters are Democrats ; on ac
count of these Democrats the number of
Representatives allowed tbe State.in the

most "donble what it would otherwise

116 votes were cast for Republican can

next House of this large opposition. In
other words, while 13 611 votes on the
average elected one Congressman, 117,
557 opposition votes elected only one.
