DAILY EVENING STAR. The Maid of Martinique. A TRl'E STORV. A lovely morning in October, 18?, was rendered a gloomy one to the inhabitants of Martinique. Repeated injuries inflicted by the ruling powers, coupled with a burning desire among many ambitious and perhaps patriotic meu. to crush for eign influence upon their beautiful isle, and to govern themselves as a free and independent people, had long rendered a residence there precarious. ()n the morn ing: in question, the banner of revolt was seen floating in proud defiance upon the walls of the castle of Fort Royal, and in the far distance the smoke of villages showed the track of the merciless demon of insurrection. Every vessel in the har bor of Fort Royal was crowded with refugees, who having hastily collected their most valuable effects, had fled be fore the tide of destruction which was rolling fearfully over that ill starred island. Among them was a merchant of high repute, who with his wife and daughter, a beautiful girl of...
