quently omitted her small duties to the queen. Elizabeth was not slow to remark every delin quency. She had once prohibited Lady Mary from wearing a costly velvet kirtle, and perhaps the affront was treasured deeply in the young beauty's heart; for, as recorded by William Fen ton, she had " refused to bear her mantle at the hour her majesty is wonted to air in the garden, and on small rebuke, did vent such unseemly answer as did breed great choler in her mistress," so that " she swore she would no more show her any countenance, but out with such ungracious, flouting wenches." But at the bottom of all the anger for the young lady's short-comings, there lay the bitter root of that jealousy which was engrafted deep in the nature of Elizabeth, and which the young and fair were perpetually in danger of disturb ing. So cruelly did she often reproach her ladies for slight faults, that Elizabeth Fenton told her brother they would often cry aloud at her sting ing words. If Lady Mary Howard h...

Virginia "Blue Laws" in 1603. The Boston Transcript contains the following We have all heard more or less of the '* Blue Laws" of Connecticut, and of the •'Black Code" of the South. But I did not know until the present war commenced that any such religio legal enactments had ever been made by the Southern chivalry of the Ditch-land, as we have understood by this term of '-Blue Laws."— Some two years since, a soldier of the Potomac army, on entering the Court House in Warwick county, Va., found the old records of tho court, which he forthwith confiscated, and sent to me two pages from which the following items are copied:— j The paper is quite thick, and measures six teen by ten inches. The chiography is peculiar and there are twenty-six entries of decisions made by that Court, under the date of October 21, 1603. This MSS. is interesting, not only from its remote antiquity, but also on account of the information which it gives us as to the religious regal manners of our Southern neig...

Canada is just now the receptacle for the crimi nals, traitors and malcontents of the United States. At present there is a stream of emi grants to the colony of all persons who have left their country for its good. They are of three classes— runaways from the South who want their section to win, but are too cowardly to fight; refugees from the North, who dread be ing called to fight for their country; and a few timid persons, from both North and South, who fear to lose their little property in the commo tion of war. All in all they are a company that can well be spared, and to which the Canadians are very welcome. A letter from Niagara Falls to the St. Louis Republican speaks of these refu gees in the following not very complimentary " Prominent among those here (and they may be found also at Hamilton, Toronto, Kingston and Windsor) is the typical Southern-fire-eater, whose appetite for war is immense. He can himself whip five detestable Yankees. He be longs to earth's nobility; had...

Resolved, That we consider their pledge of " total abstinence" an insult to us and our friends who think they can take care of them selves, and therefore need no such restrictions. Resolved, That we see with deep sorrow their disregard of the teachings ot the Scriptures, and we would respectfully recommend the insertion into their charge to candidates, of the injunction of St. Paul, " Drink ye no longer water, but take a little wino for the stomach's sake." % " And cider!" here exclaimed tho old gentle man of that name!

diers especially, have a groator attachment than for the letters they receive from Home, that par adise of earth, that Eden around which clusters all that is bright and beautiful, all that is cher ished and loved of sublunary things. As the soldier's eye catches a glimpse of the familiar hand-writing of a doting father, an anxious mother, an affectionate sister, or a loving wife, how his pulses thrill with joy? How suddenly the events and associations of the past flash through his mind in rapid succession? How tho drooping energies and flagging spirits are animated and invigorated by tho mental and moral stimulus which their open pages impart? Letters from home always come laden with life pictures, ever delineated with the characteristic thoughts and faithful attachments of those we love. And they preach about the only sermons which reach tho soldiers, for they always con tain those words of cheer, consolation, and en couragement, and those sentiments of affection ate regard which b...

A Man Drowned in a Well.—A singular case of accidental drowning occurred at the en campment of the provisional battalion belong ing to tho 2d Corps, on Wednesday evening last. A man going to the well to draw some water discovered what he supposed to bo an old shoe floating on the surface and descended to get it, when, on taking hold of the shoe, he found that there was a man's foot in it, and announced that there was a dead man in tho well. Measuros were immediately adopted for raising the body, which, when exposed to view, was recognized as that of John Dempsoy, belonging to the 61st New York Vols. The prevailing belief is that he visited the well during the previous night I and accidentally fell in, headforemost, and the depth of the water and narrowness of the well rendered it impossible for him to either extricate himself or summon to his assistance those who were quartered in the immediate vicinity. The well was originally an old spring which the sol diers converted into a well...

A Soldier's Honor. In an old newspaper printed soon after the close of the revolution, we find tho following singular statement: — " During the march of a detachment of the American army, through New Jersey, in the late war, a silver spoon was found missing in a house where a party of troops had billetted. — Suspicion pitched on a soldier who was seen to havo entered the apartment where the spoons ■were kept, and he was accused of the theft. " May I never meet salvation !" exclaimed the soldier, " may I be sunk into the endless regions of perdition, if I have seen, heard of, or taken your spoon!" " But no one else could have taken it," replied the host. The soldier again went through his manual of attestations of innocence, and imprecations upon himself if ho was guilty. The landlord looked astonished, and being an honest man was ob liged to believe the soldier. But just on the point to leave the examination—he taking hold of the soldier's coat, and looking him in the face, said: — ...

And here Jet the curtain drop on till mflfji-* choly scene, while we follow the black valise No. 2. CHAPTER 111. When the train stopped at Camden, four gen tlemen got off, and walked arm-in-arm, rapidly and silently up one of the by-streets, and struck Off into a foot-path leading to a secluded grovo outside the town. Of the first two, one was our military friend in a blue coat, apparently the loader of the party. Of the second two, one was a smiling, rosy little man, carrying a black va lise. Their respective companions walked with hasty, irregular steps, were abstracted, and ap parently ill at ease. Tho party stopped. " This is tho place," said Captain Jones. " Yes," said Doctor Smith. The Captain and Doctor conferred together.— The other two studiously kept apart. " Very well. I'll measure the ground, and do you place your man." It was done. " Now for the pistols," whispered the Captain to his fellow-second. " They are all ready, in the valise," replied the Doctor. Tho principals...

The Proscribed Song. [The following is the celebrated poem of Whit tier, which was not allowed to be sung by the Hutchinson's on this side of the Potomac. Our readers will notice that the poem is suggested by a famous hymn of Martin Luther : " Eln' Feste Burg ist unser Gott."] We wait beneath the furnace-blast The pangs of transformation: Not plainlessly doth God recast And mould anew tho nation. Hot burns the fire Where wrongs expire; Nor spares the hand That from the land Uproots the ancient evil. The hand-breadth cloud that sages feared Its bloody rain is dropping ; The poison-plant the fathers spared All else is overtopping, East, West, South, North, It curses earth: All justice dies, And fraud and lies Live only in its shadow. What gives the wheat-field blades of steel ? What points the rebel cannon? What sets the roaring rabble's heel On the star-spangled pennon ? What breaks the oath Of the men of the South ? What whets the knife For the Union's life? Hark to the answer : Sla...
