Harvey was a native of this part of Cornwall, and knew every individual and place of any note within many miles of this district. I had met him on the continent, and, much pleased with his society, had atrreed on an excursion ill the summer for the purpose of investii^atiiii; the geology of the western extremity of the kingdoiu; ainl on this day we had made a complete survey of the Lizard Point. Tiiniini,^ away from the comemplation of the massy rocks risiie,' from their ocean bed, which compose this bold pronioiitory, we woie soon at Carwinion ; and thoiiLdi 1 expected from Harvey's promise to spend a pleasant hour or two in the evening, after our day's ramble, I was much and agn.'eably surprised at the rich fund of anecdote and story of our kind hostess. From the exterior of Carwinion, no one would imacine it was anv more than a respectable farm residence ; hut, on entering tin* house, he would be struck with an elegance quite at variance with its outward appearance. We were shewn into a little room with rich black oak panelling and carved work, the windows deeply set in the, (at that moment shedding a faint but mellow light round the apartment, for the sun was then going below the horizon, shewing its broad disk over the wide Atlantic) ; the ceiling of" the room was ornamented with a deep wrought cornice ; and in a little recess, from an elegant vi,e of Italian marble, were flowers scaltering their perfumes grateful to these use. Fatigued with our day's toil, we enjoyed the comfortable hospitality of Mrs. Trelawney to her complete salislaction, and did ample justice to the cakes, coffee, and rich clouted cream, for which this county is so famous ; and they were rendered more delicious by the kind manner in we were pressed to partake of what was before us. 'J'he news of the ilay, anecdote and social chat, brouglit about tlii' hour for repose, and I was shewn to the apaniiiciit 1 was to occupy for the night. If the appearance of the parlour pleased me and excited my curiosity, this much more arrested my attention. The stairs, &,c. leadinjr to it were all of the black |)olished oak Used in the best houses m^ar tu ) cnturies since, and tlM ream il^df ..wi. a Ut-uif^ sfK-r ....^.. of the Workmanship of olden time. It was a small square room, exceplhm towards the east ; on that side were the windows, forming a deep recess, in w hich were shelves of books', some line (dd paintings of saints by the Italian masters,' and in a little niche was an ivory crucifix, curiouslv wrouL'ht, with several Catholic books of devotion ; the whole evidently pointing out that this had ken the a'lKMle of some pi-rson of piety, who at the same time poss'ssed a mind capable of enjoying the eh-LMncH's of art and refinement. The decoration of the interior of this little mansion had rivetted my attention, and called imatrination to my aid, to form some reason why this house should be fitted up in a manner so different to any in the neitdibourluMjd ; but though I formed twenty conjectures, I was dissatisfied with them all, and in ihe end wetit' to b<'d with a determination to enquire as far a a politeness would permit, of Mrs. Trelaw ney. In the morning, w hat I had been so jM'rplexed to account for. The sleep of this night, from the hard toil of tlie dav, was the most tefreshintr I had ever enjoyed, and I awoke in the morninir to gaz*' upon a scene lioautiful beyond description. The land siirroundini: the house was liighlv cultivated and teeminer with plenty ; the corn, in the ear, was gently agitated by the bieeze, and from ii tlic lark lightly springing rose full of joyful music to hail his (ik1, the sun ; in the distance was to lie se#n the little fisbinghoats, returning with the produce of the night's labour ; and at the extp'ine point of view were the ships passing to and iro to their destined havens, mere specks in the horizon. — Descending to the parlour I found Mrs. Trelawney busied in preparing breakfast, and in a short time I was fully emjaged in that most jileasant occupation, th' partaking of it. I now began to consiiler the best means of commencing my inquiries ; but I was sayed the trouble by Mrs. Trelawney's relating some anecdotes of the neighbourhood, in the course of which she unconsciously was led to make Carwinion and its lady the subject of her discourse ; it was a simple storx", scarcely worth repeating, but it interested me, and may please some others ; at all events, it cannot offend any one, and .so I w ill give it in her own words. The Trel^uneys had held the estate of Carwinion for nearly a century, under the Lords of Gorlolphin, and as they were the most considerable tenants of that house, there was always a social intercourse betwr en the parties • indeed, generally speaking, at thd time there was more friendship between landlord and tenant than at present. About the year 16 — the heir of Godolphin and Edward Trelawney, from bring nearly the ?ame age. joining in the same sports and exercises, and having received their education from the same tutor, formed a connexion honourable to both, and cemented by an affection for each other more resembling brothers than that which generally between persons situated as th^ were, and moving in stations so widely different. At the close of their education, Trelawnev returned to the rural occupation of his fathers ; his estate had been managed for some years before by hii naother, his father having died when he was an infant ; and now be took upon humelf the cares which his inestimable parent had strug.-led with for many years. The young Lord (iodolphin, to fit himsell lor the station he was intended to fill went abroad on his travels to foieign courts. For soniJ time their personal intercourse was sus^xnded, though a frequent couuminicalion was held by letter. One dreury December night, Trt^lawney "had just prepare.! himself lor rest, and only staid a few moments behind the reiiianider of the family to jM'cuie his dwelling more from llie inclemency of the weather than from any other fear, when the sound of a horse's hoof l.ri>kly trotting into his court-yard attracted his aitentn.n, and a knuckiiig at the door immediHiely followed. He o|)4ned It, and a stranger entered, who, apologising for the intrusion, presented a letter, which he said wouhl explain hia business : it was tr..m bis friend (iodolphin, and briefly stated, that knowing the friendship of Fdwunl Trelawney, he intended making Carwinion the residence of a person in whom he was much interested, and bi'gged permission to send some workmen to make such altera-^ tioii ill the house as bis confidential servant (die bearer of the letter) might think necessary ; he would repay hiin for his kindness, but he knew the j)erson ho addressed^ and that was sufficient to warrant his acting in the manner he had done. The messenger was greeted with the welcome of a friend ; permission was immediately granted^ and in a few days workmen were in busy preparation for the arrival of some person, unknown to all but Godolphin 's servant, who waited for his master to announce tho visitor. Nothing was spared lo get forward the work, and in a few months the whole was completed. So far as circumstances would permit, the apartments were entirely from models by Italian masters, and lor many years the beauty of the new buildings at Carwinion was a theme for admiration, and at tlie time a subject of gossipping wonder to the neigbbourhood, who knew not for whom this preparation was made. /\s unexjH'cted as the arrival of his messenger was the af)proach of Godidpbin, and with him came the unknown but expected visitor ; — it was a female, fair as the morn and full of smiles and lieauty. Independent of friendship for its possessor, Godolphin had made choice of Carwinnm lor its secluded situation. Concealment from the public eye was an object much desired by him, and ho thought hero lo remain |H'rfectly unknown ; but by some means or other, strange reports found their way abioad conceripnc the lady -. one said slaa was a |>oor deluded female, who had been templed to run away from her frienda by wicked arts ; others reversed it, and said she was tho M'ducer, and had entrap|M'd the affections of the younj^ Lord ; and some found fault w iih her for her religion — she was a Catholic, and the bigotted inhabitants of tlie neighbourhoiMl objerteil to papistry la-ing introduced among them. In time tlicM' remarks wire silenced, — by the poor she became almost idolized, she was so good, so kind to them ; and ibi'n in her little walks she would call at their coltagj's, and in broken English inquiie into their circumstances ; if distressed, they were sure of relief; and though some still regarded her with a jealous eye, ilie blessing of llie poor went with her. and God sanciif'ied the idessing. To 'Frelaw ney the whole was revealed. She was the daughter of an Italian nobletnan, who, to aggrandiz*' the elder branch of his family had destir.ed ibis, hi, youngest child, to the convent. The young Lord (iwlolpbin was intriwluced to lnr al her father's Iioum", where he liad U-en a visitor ; he had been told the life she was doomed to, — it was so strange to English feelings, that he pitied her the moment Im* beard it ; besides, she w .> so beautiful, so unlike an inhabitant of the world, — one who appeared ta look for sujipoit and protection from the wry fxrsons who were point: to her off forever, that h<' loved her iH'fore he had an idea it could possibly be the case ; though love utters not a word, it is eliKjiient — in action, in h>oks, in attention lo the w ish, in iIm; whole |M-Iiaviur. It is shewn, and speaks a language as |Miwerful as the fWlest oratory. In a situation like Ixr's, doomed to I e shut out from the world and its phasiires at the time iIh y are enjoyed the most, the attentions of GiMlolplnn had a power irresistible ; and it required litlle persuasion to induce her to accept his proposal of marriage, and leave her country for that of Britain ; they were privatiU married by the chaplain of the British embassy at \ enice. and immediately left Italy. Love had completely blinded Godolphin to the labvrinth into whi^ he had plunged, be left \ enice without any settled plan of proceeding, hisonly idea was to secure tie prize, and elude the vengeance of the father of his bride ; but riow other iboiigbts came to his mind, — the prejudices of his family against foreigners, the knowledge that another had been allotted him by his father, — th'n Carwinion and Trelaw ney were thought of; and know ing it would be some months before he could arrive in England, without subjecting himself to a multitude of inquiries as to his return before the period prescribed, hedispatcled his confidential .servant to gel the mansion and apartments in order for the reception of his lady, until bter prospects opened to him, and he could introduce her to tfhfi world at the mistress of his house and sharer of his titU? and fortune. The day of thoir arrival at Carwinion was completely typical of their after life ; the morning sun rose in splendour, but clouds and storm overshadowed it at noon ; then it brightened, and as the Aay declined and evening came on, there was a mild glory in the heavens, sliedding its vivifying influence on the world, and the sur, in its iitting* if.'

This was a caseof MMzure for an alleye.l viose of h.-ing hrou-d.t to New I rovi.h nee, to attend as doim.stic servants on the claimant, who then was n-siding in this Island.

To prove the property in the claimant, a certified copy of a hill of *hU. from her son, Williams, ,0 herself, iK-aring date the 10th ', May last, was annexed to the claim. The caus. came on for ai Lament on Friday last when the Attorney-tirneral, o|M'nrd iIk' pl.-adin.js*hy reading the information and claim, and then proceeded ti> state t'le prosecutor's case in a hnjthy and energetic speech, relying principally for condemnation upon the facts, that the Slaves wtro field Slaves, thpro,>ertv of Williams; and had leen removed from Watling's Island, not as domestic, in r.ttemlance on Wiiliams, hut for the purpose of iH-ini? passed over to a Mr. Hall, in payment for a small ve^^el purchaM-d by William, from Hall.

Foil three whole weeks eniirfr had passed away, Since the wise CouncU'i memorable day ; The junto parted as before was said, Each full of projects in his sapient head : They anxious w^tch, and listen long in vain. No certain proof of treason, could they gain : When in hit Iout:ging walk, one sultry day. The crafty Sly, heard some one whisp'nng say, ' Well meet next week, to act a certain play ." A plot thought he, *' I'll call the trusty scout, And sure as fate, we'll clearly find it out : Oh I Nimblefoot, pray quickly fly and bear, The saJ news to our noble master's ear." Up goes with speed the courier to the hill. And finds the Chief in moody humour still, Before him on the well ink'd table lay, A printed ticket, for the coming play, "1 come," says he, great Sir, to advertise A certain meeting of your enemies." '• I know," replies the Chief, *' and I will go, To smile, and talk, and nod, and bow so low ; The folks wdl think I surely now forgive. But ril revenge, — if I am spared to live," While thus he speaks, in bolting Arid's seen. Mournful his phiz, his lips are livid green. Glaring his eyes, his tallow face turns white. While he addrcss'd his gallant friend the Knight. ** My gracious Lord, a mob about three score. Rave planned to hoot, and hiss you at the door, Also with missiles, they'll your coicb assail, Sent from a cotton tree, close by the jail ; A wound you'll get upon your sacrerd, will never do, But I may train your West End. sable crew; In time they'll learn to face, and right-about. To put one fo-)t, and then the other out. In scarlet clothes, they'll be a handsome guard. This plan wdl do, I shall not .low be marrd. VVithout his Host he little thought he'd counted, Sir Samuel, at this new notion flouted, •i have a finger in the pie," quoth he, "And dost thou think I'll e'er give up to thee. This GoTernment flock of well fledged C"''**', W'hora 'tis my province now to pick, and fleece t To shew your fujorrf, znd feather, now and U^en, I jast the reason, you require these men : \ Go bully Redcloth. get them where you can,' I never will give op, a single man." High words they have, and both agree to fight To meet and settle the dispute that nicht : ut peaceably they settle the affair. No wounds received by either any where ; Says Sly, he lives who fights, and runs away, Longer to fight, perhaps, another day. Better let each, at other's shadow aim. Courage, and raaDly spirit, still you'll claim, ^ our honour satiMfi^d, the world's high fame. Will raise great honour to vonr noblt name." i^^'i done as th.eunnin^ SIv proposd The*Aarfo.r* woun'feH. and— the business clou'd. G. S. X. THE FALL OF MOWBRAY ; OR, THE Seige of Thirsk Castle, '• Brave chief I thy mansion 'neath the tumuli Hath long been buried ; and where once wot heard The clash of swords and all-vicloriouw cry Of battle-legions fighting for thir lord, All IS serene, except the sounds that fly Along its vaults, proceeding from the horde Of playful children, or the village bell — lis Sabbath chime, or deeper-sounJing knell." A stranger, who avers himself a poor sinner of the Cistertian brotherhood at Hode, desires audience with Sir Roger de Mowbray," said the heucbman of the northern chieftain, addressing liis master. *' Award him welcome," replied De Mowbray ; ** ho may come, I trow, to report hearsay of the approach of Henry's troops ; yet, I suspect oot their encaiuptuent in lht quarter." The blessing of the Virgin rest upon ye !" ejaculated the professed monk, as entering he made his obeisance to De Mowbray. ** A brother of the faithful fraternity of StFelix requests conference with ye for awhile." '* Wilt though first refresh thyself, holy father 1 it is now verging towards supper-time, and thine hath been a rough and unkindly path." I thank ye, courteous kii'ght; but when spears are sharpening on the rocks in Sutton Hohl, and burnished bucklers gleaming in Thirlby Full, it is vexatious to talk of rest or refreshment." ** So Henry hath faced me at last — But why tarry his forces in Sutton Hold 1 By the high altar of Saint Felix fairer spot for defeat they could not have chosen — They are strange to the fastnesses of the cliffs ; wc might drive thetu to tlieir extremity, and destroy them as we list — But, pray rest thee, reverend father." At this invitation, tito tall and cowled personage, who had hitherto rendered dubious the altitude of his figure by a partial stoop, forgetting his assumption, strode martially across the stony floor, and the tread of his heavy foot rang loudly through tho sounding audience-room, as he proceeded to the massy board, where be seated himself opposite to and facing De Mowbray. The wine-cup was borne to tlte lordTV baron, out of which, as was the feudal custom, he pledged his monkish guest, who, when tlie goblet was passed to him, took a deeper draught than beseemed his sanctimonious garb, — a draught, too, belying that pro\4>r^''^ ahytemionMieM which report assigned the confreres of St. Felix. To a question put by De Mowbray, regarding the welfare of his mother Gundreda, who had taken l;*:uporary sanctuary in the monastry at Hode, the pretendcred out a specious message from the Lady Gundreda, apologising for previously omitting to deliver it. He threw over his spurious statements a masterly gloss of words, completely lulling the suspicion of De Mow bray, while he made inquiries of the defensive state of the castle, and what support might he expected from the surrounding lords, as bidligerent auxiliaries. ** My castle is guarded by one thousand soldiers," said De Mow bray ; — Lgremont has offered mo help ; the Roos, of Helmsley, aflord me fair countenance ; and my *" I come not, gallant Mowbray, to bandy reproailiia with you ; eillier give me safe egress from your mansion, like a warrior of honour and credit, or put lue in fetters, at your caprice may settle upon." The promptings of mercy triumphed over tliose of justice in the breast of De Mowbray ; and he conducted Sir Ingram Chesterton to the barbican of the castle, assuring him, that though he bid bini not God sfieed, such omissioD should not detract from the reception he should meet w iili on his next appearance before llie walls of Thirsk Castle. The spy. Sir Ingram Chesterton, had scarcely departed, and the drawbridge of the castle was but lusl drawn up, when De Mowbray was called to hear tlie relation of Blind Dan, an eccentric wanderer, a poor kinsman of the seneschal of the castle, who had been met by Sir Ingram on Carlton Moor, and persuaded to give hini conduct to tlve castle ; which having done, he himself entered, and told to the warden his suspicions respecting the pcdished monk who had spoken hinnso fairly. Though blind, Dan's power* of recognition, and his familiarity with the suriounding localities, were unrivalled. A child of the mountain and the forest, his nifhts were mostly spent in wandering ; wd when occasionally he sought refreshment in sleep, his couch was the rough hay-rick, or tlie sheaves of the thrashingfloor, as chance threw such receptacles in his way ; and it was in one of those nocturnal ramblesthat he met with Sir Ingram Che&terlon. ** Saddle me my horse," commanded De Mowbray ; I will fathom this treachery, and repay Sir Ingram with his own coin. Lead the way to Carlton Moor, Dan ; and stop thee where thou thinkest it was that this monk met thee. I will test his honour, since he hath clamoured for the maintaining of mine." Wrapped up in his cloak, De Mowbray slowly rode along the outer walls of the castle, and entered on the dreary moorlamls of Carlton, accompanied by Blind Dan as his guide. The latter walked boldly on, without once stopping, or deviating in tlie least from the right track* They arrived at the charmed row of the seven elms, where Dan, after piissing the sixth, pause was conscious of Itaving |vssed th* six elms, though Im had not ascertained it by touching them (as De Mowbray and himself had halted full ten vards from ilwrn^ ; but he accountet'M><<^^''"g ^" < * <"''<1*'. *'*^ ^"^^ ^^ route I award them ten carucates of land ; Mountgrace, in more prosperous plight, will give their succour ; and Rievaulx also, — for I went forth against the plundering Scots, when they attacked their church and burnt its goodly library. I will send messages to my friends forthwith. But how strong in numbers seem the enemy ?*' The stranger, w hilst |>onderinj: upon the reply he should make to this interrogatory, incautiously turned him on the chair on which he was sitting, and tin* spur on his he(d becoming entaneled in the hmg cowl, dragged o|)en the loop which secured it at the neck, and the sahle disguise dropped at his feet, revealing to De Mowbray the mailed and imliosing fieure of Sir Intrram Chesterton, hitherto the coadjutor of, and commanding with him in their s*)vereign's expeditions against the marauding Scots, but w ho now appeared in the character of spy, to connive at the downfall of the refractory chief. De Mowbray rose from his seat, and, sword in hand, stood wildly gazing on Sir Ingram Chesterton, who crouched before him, overcome by shame rather than by fear: the amazement of the former somewhat subsiding, he furiously exclaimed — ** Traitor — liar this night's deceit shall be at a dear purchase to thee ; for, ere to-morrow wakes, the ravens of of Sandhuttcm, and passed its isolated cross, the pallid figure of which gleaneir Ingram Chesterton ?'' nized De Mowbray ; and, forgetting the generous example which that chieftain had but so recently set hini, htr vociferated — Mowbray ? — madman ? by this infw>lence bast thou dared thy death! By my father's fame, the whole of the rebellious estates conjoined cannot now save thee (rota my vengeance !** Saying which, the impetimus and unarmed Sir Ingram sprane on De Mowbray, and closine with biro, strove resolutely to give him the fall. But his own anger, which had subdued his voice, was his greatest opponent, and De Mowbray shook him off with the same ease as that with which he could have thrown the veriest stripHng, and, retreating from the tent, parsed the alarnricd yet drowsy sentinels, and made speed to the hill-'eatr-d thicket where mat hi> steed. While releasing him, De Mowbray received a I i' *' I* k lii %> ill W*— — — f
