CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. In the Democratic Review for November, 1849, there waa an account of the trial of Harry Blake, for murder, who wus convicted upon circumstantial evidence and hung. About three months after his death, the judge who presided at the trial, received a note from a prisoner under sentence of death, requesting to see him without delay, as hiasentence was to be carried into effect the day following.— On his way thither he overtook an old man walking slowly, who accosted him and recognized him to be Caleb Gray eon, who had been a witness at Blake's trial, and had a eimilir note of his own, but equally at a loss to know the meaning of the summons. They both entered the cell together. The prisoner did not move, but only raised his head, when Grayson recognized having seen him ut a tavern the night before Blake's execution, and at tlie gallows. «• Well, Judge," said he, ** 1 sent for you to ceo if you can't get mo out of this scrape.

HiESTOKY OF A SONG The Marseillaise retiins the echo of a Bong of victory, and also of a cry of death; it is glorious as one, dismal as the other. Here is its origin: Thore was at that time (17D2) a young artillery officer in garrison at Strasbourg. His name was Roujel de Lisle. He was born at Louis.lc-Saulnicr, in the Jura, a country of meditation and energy, as arc all mountain districts. This young man loved war as a soldier, and the Revolution as a thinker; lie beguiled by verses and music the wcjry impatience of the garrison.— Miich sought after for his double talent of musician and poet, he frequented familiarly thu bouse of Diclrccli, the mayor of Strasbourg and a patriot Ahstim. Dielrccli's wife and daughter partook in his enthusiasm for patriutiem nnd the Rovolu. tion. They loved Ihc young officer; they gave inspiration to his heart, his poetry, his music. They were the first who performed his scarcely unfolded thoughts, full of confidence in the early lispinrrs of bi...
