Like a clap of thunder in a clear sky, the awful truth flashed upon the minds of men, that they were in the midst of one of the most terrific Mid bloody as well as one of the most brilliant revohtions that ever disgraced thp-annals uf any nation Amid the wrecks and ruins of that French volca; o, a thousand thrones tottered and tumbled, a tlii usuhd crowns perished, though they ;erpctuated t! e ambition that blasted them. Scarce had the mad! though magnificent drama, com menced, ere liouis the XVI. perished on the scaf fold, and his llood made an offering to the demon of frpnzy aiidjsavage fierceness. Yet no sooner had lie gone (nvn to a dark and dreadful grave t'lan the awfuj axe fell upon the fair neck of his (j ieea ; the biautiful, the accomplished, though dissipated Majia Antoinette. The reeking instru ment, which lstd drank tho blood of the royal pair, was not yet stiiatcd. The knell of vengeance had hounded, and 'jie greedy guillotine was to feed and fatten on the agonies of the whole Bourbon family. Never was any nation cursed with a set of more terrible tyrans than those who wielded the reek ing sceptre of iFranre, triumphing in the downfall of all that was great, or good, or glorious, and dooming to deith all who opposed their savage ca- nvr. Their iurch was in blood ; and a thousand mothers minced theircries and mourned over the tombs of thci'fniurdorod sons. The hands of the terrific Robeipien! were red with tho gore of slaughtered p jnees, and the dungeons of r ranee a ore filled wjjh victims for the awful axe, which Lad already d-unk the blood of thousands.

' They were all told of it,' said the wise vi zier, ' but they nmde no good use of tlu ir knowledge. They enjoyed the pleasure of tin moment without thinking of the future. JS; tho time for their dethronement came them before they had made the slighte .1 pr, paration for rendering their future life in the desert island an agreeable one.' Why, can that be done V asked the asfoii ished sultan. ' Surely it can,' was the reply.

The prudent sultan did not, like hi. prei! -cessors, turn a deaf ear to the warning voice of his gQOtl vizier ; without loss of time he sent a large number of his best and most valu able subjects to the desert island, and com manded them to prepare a pleasant retrent ft him against his coming.

But the next moment the axe fell with a dread ful crushing sound, the red gore gushed several feet from the .leadsman, and the beautiful head of the French queen dropped into the bucket. The exe cutioner seized it by the long hair, and held it with its calm, pale features for the mob to gaze on. Blondeville could gaze no longer, and turned from the scene with a sickeninc: sensation. The wild died the beautiful, the accomplished, and dissipat ed Maria Antoinette, at one time the idol of the army, and the fascination of Paris. (To be concluded in our next.)

An eastern sultan, who was far from being a way, got one day very blooming flowers and sweet', fragrance ; and there he lived forever in cheerfulness and peace, for he knew that this was his final re1-1-ing place, and that he had no further change or accident to fear.
