Th c(l,te!nr having fust corifccd his love to lh" olijot t df if, had hi en iinliuli.inily dismii-cd. Tho iCdiC U thus continued: An hour had icnreely chipficd be fore the lights wore cxtingni-lud in the vnulied halls of Holyhoodj wild gunrils wi re oitd Tor (lie night, the oilircr had gone their rounds, tho In dies of ihc royal circle were dismissed, and all was darkness and silence. Jn (he chamber, of Mary, burned a small lamp, be.'ore a beautifully executed painting of the Virgin, but the light w as not sufficient to penetrate the ob scurity which reigned in the many angles of the apartment, although the moonbeams were admitted thro' the open casement. ' Her garb of ceremony laid aside, her lovely shape scantily veiled by a single robe of spotless linen, her au burn tresses flowing in unrestrained luxuriance, almost to her feet, if she had been a creature of perfect human beauty when view id in all the pomp of royal pageantry, the now appear eda being of supernatural loveliness. Her small white feet unsandled gli ded over the rich Carpet, with a grace which a slight degree of fancy might have deemed the m'otion peculiar to the inhabitants of another world. For an instant, ere she turned to her re pose, she lenned against the curved millions of the window, and gazed pensively, and, it might be, sadly up on the garden where she 'had so late ly paitcd f.om the unhappy youth whose life was thus embittered by that very feeling, which, above all others should, have been its consola- t ion. WiUtd; a iv i n g he r e j cs from Ihc moou light, scene, she knelt before iu lamp and shrine which it llluml- ated,and her whi-pered orisons arose pure us the source from which they flowed -the prayers of a weak and jumble mortal, penitent for evory tri- vial error, breathing all confidence to lim whocan alone protect or pardon; 10 prayers of a Queen for her nume rous childien, and. last and holiest of all, a woman's prayers forhernufor- tunate admirer. os, she praycinor Castelar, that strength might be giv en him fioin on high to bear the crosses of a miserable life, and that by divine mercy the hopeless love might be uprooted from his breast. The words burst passionately from her ips, her whole torm quivered wttti the excels of her emotion, and tne big tiais tell Hue rain irom ner uiu ted eyes. While she was yet irk the very flood of passion, a sigh was breath ed so clcaily audible that the convic tion 'flashed like lightning on her soul, that this most secret prayer was lis't- ened to by others .ears than tliose oi leavenly ministers. Terror, acuie terror, took possession otner mina, cani-hinir by its superior violence ev ery less engrossing idea. She snatch ed the lamp lrom its nicne waved it slowly around the chamber ana there; in -the mdst hallowed spot of her widowed chamber, a spy upon her unguarded moments, stood a dark figure.; Even in that moment oi as tonishment and fear, as if by instinct of purely female modesty, rhe snatch- cd a velvet manttu irom me Beai un which it had been cast aside, and veil ed her person even before she spoke Oh, Uod! it is de' Castelar. ' ' "Sweet Queen," replied the intru der, "bright, beautiful ruler, oflmy destinies, pardon "What ho!" she. screamed in notes of dread intensity, "a moi, mcs Fran cois. My guards! Seyton Varmi chael Flemmingwill ye leave your Queen alone! alone with treachery & black dishonor! villian! slave!'', she cried, turning her dashing eyes upon him, her whole form, swelling as , it were, with all the (ury ot injured in P - nOCei!Cel"LUUbH.lluuu.uoiuiu..m 1 , if.,;, M,.,, iho u r aF Vrnnrls Lu-.noinid Queen of Scotland, 'Iwoald.brojk thin Unfamous addreises 03)', knei l not, of I cpnrii lhif.

What, ho!"- again she Cried, stamping with impotent anger at the delay of her attendants, "tieason my guard?, treason!" At length the pas sage rang with the hurried footsteps of the startled inmates of the palace, with torch and spear, and brandished blades they rushed into the apartment page, sentinel, and cliamociain lauies with dishevelled hnirand faces blanch ed with terror. . , The Queen stood erect in the cen tre of the room, pointing with one white arm bare to the shouldet, to waid the wretched culprit, who wiih folded arms and head erect awaited hi doom in unresisting silence. His naked rapier, with which alone he might have foiled the united ctlorts ol his enemies, lay at his feet, his brow wes white as sculptured marDie, ana no less rigid, but his eyes glared w ild ly, and his lips quivered as though he would have spoken, i he Queen still furious at the wrong which he had done her fame, marked the expression. 'Silence,' she cried, 'degraded would's thou meanly beg thy forfeited life? were thou my father, thou should' st die to-morrow! Hence with the villain Bad Maitland execute the warrant turself, ourself will sign it; away! Castelar dies at daybreak!,v "'Tis well," replied he, calmly, "'tis well, the hps I love me Dcst pro nounccd my doom, and I die happy, since I die for Mary! -WWd'et thou but pity (he offender, while thou dost doom the offence, de Castelar would not exchange the shortened span of life, and violent death, for the light est crown in Christendom. My limbs may die, my love will live forever! Lead on, minions. I am more glad to die, than ye to slay! Mary, beautiful Mary, think! think hereafter upon Castelar!" . Ehe guards passed v on ware, and the hist of the group unfettered aud unmoved, was Castelar. Once, ere he slopped beneath the low browed portal, he paused, placed both hands on his heart, bowed lowly, and mur mured some incoherent words.' As he vanished from her presence she waved her hand impatiently to be left alone and all night long, she tra versed the floor of her chamber in paroxysms of the fiercest despair. The warrant was brought to her sif lently, sternly she traced the signa ture beneath it, not a sign of sympa thy was on her pallid features, not a tremor shook her frame: she was pas sionless, maiestic and unmoved. The secretary left the chamber on his fa tal errand and Mary was again a woman. .Prostrate upon her couch she lav, sobbing and weeping as tho' hfr verv soul was oursiing irom uci ' . l , r 1 bosom. defvine all consolation, spurn inareverv at remedy "'I is done: ' w . . . - ... she would say, "'tis done!

My hcareis kisn may he recon cd among (he luxtli iei of life, rather than among in necessaries; and the reason why so many arc olid of in- jdulging in them in, because they be long to, the supcrlluilie of tint world, and contribute neither to the nourish ment of the body for the welfare of the soul, but merely afford a moment 8 gratification. Formal or ceremoni ous kisses are like manufactured flow ers very fine in appearance, but wanting in lragrance; and their su perabundance only goes to show that the present is a very artificial state of society, as the monkey said when its master put breeches on him. 1 he common custom of kitsing the Bible in order to give the appearance of solemnity to an oath unless the kiss be hot lrom the heart, is impious mockery, and ought never to be prac tised in a country like this, where Christianity and common sense are supposed to be closely combined. This cold kind of kissing produces no bhsslul excitement, and otten lends to bad results; and I have no doubt but the old woman experienced more pleasure when she kissed her cow, than half of the young men who be stow busses upon thecheek of beauty, unwarmed by the fire of affection. - My young friends you may go to your private evening parties, where all is gaycty, loyety and hilarity; where the lovely angels of earth, dressctl in the snowy robes of purity, look tempting enough to make a saint turn sinner, and penorm a pilgrim' age from paradise to perdition for the sake of a single glorious smack. Go then, and feast till you fatten upon forfeited kisses; but be assured tha although they may be attended with ittle sport and amusement, (hey mhewit'h JOu.
