fd the whole weeks entire bd pased aw.y,
Ilsee t wIs Council's memorable day ;
Ti Janto patted u before v maid,
Sfail of project in hia spiet head:
They anxious watch, .ad listen long in vain
No ecmin proof of season, could they gain
Whoe in hL louring walk, one aulry day, )
The crafty Sly, hd some one whispring say,
- We'll meet next week, to act a certain play.")
A t thought he, "I'll call the trusty scout,
And sure as fate, we'll clerly find it out :
Oh! Nimblefoot, pray quickly fly and bear,
The sad news to our noble master's ear."
Up goes with aeed the courier to the hill,
An finds the Chief in moody humour still,
Before him on the well mk'd table lay,
A printed ticket, for the coming play.
*I come," says he, "great Sir, tuadvertise
A certain meeting of your enemies."
SI know," replies the Chief, and I will go,
To smile, and talk, and nod, and bow so low ;
The folks will think I surely now forgive,
But I'll rovenge,-if I am spared to live."
While thou he speaks, in bolting Arid'a seen,
Mournful his phs, his lips are livid green,
OGlrimn his eyes, hil sallow face turns white
Whilehe address'd his gallant friend the Knight.
SMy gracious Lordl. a mob about three score,
Hioe planned to hoot, and hias you at the door,
Als with missiles, they'll your cooch assail,
Beat from a cotton tree. close by the jail;
A wound you'll get upon your sacred head,
And 'twill a mercy be if you get afe to bed."
He speaks who wai fur star, and titles fam'd,
And says. I'll bring theonall to be a.lamu'd-
I w ll Ioult them in a two fold way,
I'll take no ntics of the intended play;
Bat send that gamekit, bordy, lump of earth,
That acwrns, tool-that lirty Jack of Perth.
To dress his quean, and rake her to the show,
And seat her by the ladies in a tow:
The miser loves too iw his hoarled pel
To give a ticket to the jade himself,
Mine will I send. 0, happy, happy, thought,
A alight attention oft the villain bought.
Belides he in his iron chest retains,
The sums that really are the public gains,
Closely locked up. as tho' they were his own,
Which all must lieg, and nue for Ps a boon.
The eitiaens he shall insult for me,
The end full well I gue,. will surely be,
That twenty duels he will have to fight,
In one perhaps, his soul will take ts flight."
I care not, if I hut get his place,"
Said Nimblefoot. Ile surely wins the race.
Who's quick and seady :" hut replies old Sly,
I wantan office, and for that I'll try,
My mater ser.e 1, full as well ia vou.,-
Am joat a honest, firm. andil faohfti too."

No, wait until you hear the deed is done.
And then you'll have the jul race to run."

A meful visage they observe he wears.

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

The humble pttitiunojul memorial of the Assembly of Jamaica, Most Gracious Sovereign, WV your Majesty's most dutifsiland loyal subjects, the Assembly of Jamaica, having tiiken into our'ration the present critical state of the colonies, humbly approach the throne to a.ssure your Majesty of our most dutiful regard to your royal jwrson ami family, and our atta< liment to, and relianreon, our fellow snhjocts in (treat Britain, founded on the .solid and durable basis, tht* cendin;/, that when your Majesty and your Parliament shouhl have maturely considered and deliberated on tle claims i)f (Jnat Britain and her ccdonies, awry cause of dissatisfaction would bo removed. That, justly alarmed with the appronchinj: horrors of an unnatural contest between (reat Britain and her colonies, in uhichthe most (Ireadful calai ities to this island, and th^' inevitable destruction ttlers of the first C(donies. hut es|>eciallv those of the elder colonit's of North Anu-rica as well as the conqiH-rors of this island, were a part of the English }x?ople. in every respect es of the colonists in apiM-al, in which it ever vas, and is their duty, to serve the subjects within the realm. That, from what has been said, it appears that the emigrants could receive nothing fn>Tn either the p'ers or the people, the former being unable lo communicate tlu-ir privileges, and tlw latter on no more than an eipial footing with ourselves; but that, with the King it was ottierwise ; the royal preroc.-^tive as now annexed to, and l)elong'ing to the crown, lieing totally inde|>endent of the people, who cannot invade, add to, or diminish it. nor restrain or invalidate those h'gal grants, which tho preroeative hath a just right lo give, and hath very liberally given, for the encouragement of colonization ; to some colonies it graiitenists, are not, nor ought lobe "bound by any other laws, than such as they have tluniselves assented to, and not disallowed by your Majesty. Your petitioners do therefore make this claim and demand from their .•s, as to your petitioners in particular, and iK-'ing anxiotisly d(>sirous of increasing the pom! effects of these laws, as well as to remove an ohstarhwhich is new in our government, and could not lia\e existed on llie principh's of our constitution, as it hath arisople of thi* Island, that we fnfly consent to the ojKration of all such acts of the British Parliainrnt, as an limited to i the n-gulation of our exteniitl commeree only am' th!
