The pall of silence which has fallen
upon the grave of Mrs. Seward is still
more remarkable than the unobtrusive
quiet of her life, aud I trust it is not
idle curiosity which makes me more
anxious to know her history than that
of any woman whose name I have
ever heard. If I mistake not her ex
ample is one which the women of this
country cannot afford to lose; and in
hope it may Induce some one who knew
her to give us some incidents in her
honorable lift', lit me tell you the little,
the very little, I know.
When I went into Campbell hos

I called upon tlio public for fruit acids

It was accompanied by a note asking
me to send to her when anything special
was wanted. Some one—that I suptiosed

Secretary of State, who, being a bach

hospital business, I supposing she was
Mr. Seward's niece by marriage, until
the following Winter, when thcru was
much trouble in the contraband camps.
Among the teachers was a Quakeress,
from central New York—one of those
women who left homes of wealth and
refinement to live in camp, cabin and
barracks, to distribute clothing, books,
encouragement, and instruction amongst
those scattered and bereaved people.

Queen Elizabeth and her Favorites.
The partiality of Queen Ellzal>eth for

tilting," was the reply.

Blount heard these words, and sent
ie prime favorite a challenge. They
let In Maryleboue Park. Essex was
;ounded in the thigh. W hen the Queen
leard it, she exclaimed: "By God's
loath, it's fit and proper that some one
hould take the Earl down, and teacl
him manners; otherwise there wouldb
no ruling him."
Charles Blount was too much of a so
dicr to remain long at the Queen's apror
string. He broke away, and wenttoth
war in Flanders. Elizabeth discoverer,
it, and wrote to her general, Sir Johr
-vo._c.ys, to send her truant back. "Servt
mo so once more, and I'll lay you toofasi
for running. You will never leave ofl
till you are knocked on the head.us that
inconsiderate fellow Sidney was," said
the Queen to her truant knight.
Sidney, as the reader is aware, receiv
his mortal wound in tiie battle fought
beneath the walls of Zutphen. As he
was also a favorite with the Quetm—ac
great a favorite that she thought tht
i Court no court without him—we may re
. mind the reader, in this pareuthica
paragraph, of the last and noblest act o
his life, recorded by Lord Brooks: "Paa

his uncle, the general (i. «., the __arl o
Leicester) was, and being thirsty

his head, before he drank, and delivered
it to the poor man, with these words:—
1 Thy necessity is greater than mine.'"
But to turn back to Charles Blount;
the Queen appointed him her deputy,
, and sent him to Ireland, In place of Es
sex, who had mado a terrible mess ofthe
war in that country.
On her mentioning this appointment
to'Baeon, he replied, courtler-like, "Sure

the weakest and most inefficient vicero
that Ireland ever had.
"Essex!" exclaimed the Queen—
"When I send Essex back into Irelant ,
I'll marry you. Claim it of me."
But this appointment was looked up
on, in those days, as a sort of banish
ment from the Court. It was Essex'
enemies who procured him the appoint
ment to Ireland, from which he, after a
few months, cut and run.
Mountjoy owed it to his talents; but
judging from his letters, ho did not the
less regret his absence from Court. In
one of "those epistles he boldly speaks of
his love for the Queen; she being nearly
seventy. "This most dear sovereign, I
do not writo with any swelling justifica
tion of myself. If any impious tongue
do tax my proceedings, I will patiently
bless it, that by making me suffer for
your sake,—l that havesuffered for your
sake, a torment above all others, a griev
ed and despised love—"
Elizabeth, far from taking such lan
guage amiss, replies: ...
"Oh, what melancholy humor hath
exhaled up into your brain, from a lull
fratighted heart, that you should breed ]
such doubt, bred upon no cause given
by us at all, never having pronounced
any syllable upon which such a work
should be framed."

We very much doubt thnt any of her
admirers succeeded in piercing her wo
man's heart. They may have had the
vanity which characterizes a portion of
the male sex, of supposing that their
noble persons, courtly manners, and im
passioned words, had made the desired
impression; but we believe they were
mistaken. Elizabeth was vain of her
person; but her vanity was overtopped
and overmastered by a good sense and
her feeling of self-respect, and by tho
consciousness of her high position and
dignity as the ruler of a great and pow
.•rlul kingdom. The truth is, that wo
are as much in tht habit of exaggerat
ing tiie faults and failings of kings and
queens, after tbeir death, as we are of '
over-estimating their virtues and good
deeds while living.

that Elizabeth was really wounded by
Raleigh's spear or love shaft; "that he
struck her 'full on her breast,'" and
made her downe incline her head, and
