ed in the House all that remained alive of the nobles of England, and the sovereign; and they proposed to deliberate upon the possibility of any means remaining to provide water. But a demagogue of the people, Matheson by name, roused their fury and their madness, and they burst in, accusing their superiors of their calamities. The Queen's life was in danger; and then occurred a gallant action, which is worthy to live if man lives. A Churchill, a descendant of that Marlborough who fought Blenheim, came to the Hall whither they had broken in, and required, in the Queen's name, to know what they wanted. He meant to gain time, for other nobles had effected an exit at a private door for her, and were hurrying her away to a place of security till she could escape from England. They answered Churchill that water was monopolized; that Matheson must be minister; that they must speak to the Queen face to face, and have her hostage for the accomplishment of what they wished.

aulette secured about his person a large packet of diamonds, collected in palaces and noble dwellings near London, and the apparatus he required for transmuting them into water; and searching for and finding the remains of the railroad to the coast at Hover, they kept on in that track, which, from its evenness, offered facility to their journey. But in several places it had been purposely broken up during the commotions which proceeded the final triumph of the drought, and the tunnel near Folkestone had fallen in the middle from want of the necessary attention to the masonry. These difficulties seemed harder to bear than those which they had met with in the beginning of their pilgrimage, when their hopes of reaching a certain bourne were more secure. The destruction of London had thrown a deep gloom over all their expectations; and besides, that help was removed to a much greater distance, they could not but feel it very probable that a similar fate might have befallen the other pla

e localities. Paulette and Charles clambered over the fallen walls, and would have been bewildered among the heaps of masonry and houses shaken from their base and blackened by fire, only that over the desolate prospect they saw, and Paulette marked the bearings of St. Paul's, the chief part of whose dome rose high in the air, though a huge rent let the daylight through it, and threatened a speedy fall. There was here and there a spire rising perfect over the ruins; there were remains of Whitehall, strong though blackened, seen over a long view of prostrate streets; and in the distance beyond, fragments of Westminster Abbey showed themselves in the sunlight, though defaced and crumbled as if the frame had been too ancient to resist the fire. Guided by these landmarks, Paulette traced out the plan of the city, and by degrees recognized where the great streets had run, where the palaces had stood, where the river had flowed-- and all was silent, all an absolute stillness, where there

uch mighty hearts, such mighty works; such ages of story,--all buried in one black mass! Piteous spectacle! " cried Paulette, striking his breast and stretching forth his arms over the skeleton of what was once a sovereign in the world. He took his son by the hand and led him over the confused masses, telling him as they went along what were the ruins by which they passed. "This great heap of buildings which has fallen into the square must be the palace of our kings. It is that St. James's where they dwelt till nobler buildings rose with the improving times. See here, Charles, there is less ruin here. This open space was park and garden; and time has been that I have heard the buzz of men filling all this place when the sovereigns came to hold their courts in that building. I think that this dreadful fire must have taken place before life was quite extinct; for, see, there are heaps of bones here, as though men had fled together to avoid it; and it either overtook them

ogether. Further out from the coast, where the sea had been deepest, there seemed tracks of sand; and far away over this newly exposed desert rose other hills, clearly seen through the unclouded atmosphere, and which they knew to be the rocks of France, and if they should arrive there, what was the hope they offered? Scarce any — nothing but more pilgrimage. Further wandering, Paulette and Ellen sat apart while the children lay sleeping, side by side, for an hour or two, at this point of thei the same influence. Ellen and he would not dwell on the sight after the first contemplation of it; they passed on, shuddering, and made toward the great wall of rock which they saw rising to the south, and which must be their way to the land of France. But before they reached it, the sun began to decline; and without light it was in vain to attempt to seek a path. There was a wind, keener than they had felt of late, which came from the west, and the little Alice pressed on her father's bosom

nown names and funeral inscriptions, contrasting strongly, by their quiet character, with the confusion around. "Never forget them, Charles," said Paulette. "These are names which the world has trembled at, and which are now like to be such as those before the flood, barbarous to those who are building up a new order of things, and known merely as a barren catalogue of names. Yet, if you live, remember Edward, the King, here; remember the Black Prince; remember the days and heroes of Elizabeth; remember the poetry and the romance of the old world." "Ay, father; and I'll remember the great name of him who taught you to print, and of Wickliffe, the reformer, and of the man who gave you the steam engine." Paulette smiled and sighed; he felt that his own ideas of things heroic were as much contrasted with those of Charles as their notions of the beautiful. But he thought not to stem the stream.

"Ay, that there were," said Paulette, "many a glorious one; some known and some unknown, who did things which made one know one's self — a glorious and immortal creature. See, there, that ruined Abbey — there lay the ashes of brave and good; these are their crumbled monuments-- 'that fane where fame is a spectral resident.' Alas, there is no fame, no name left!"

They answered Churchill that water was monopolized; that Matheson must be minister; that they must speak to the Queen face to face, and have her hostage for the accomplishment of what they wished. Churchill pretended to deliberate for an instant with some one in the adjoining chamber, and then returning, said: If the Queen do not speak with you in ten minutes, you may tear me in pieces.' that he was saying this to give her time to escape; others said if it were so he should assuredly suffer the penalty. Churchill answered nothing, only smiled; and then the majority said he could not be so foolhardy, and they would grant him the tepassed, and Matheson eagerly cried, "The time is gone, yet we don't see the queen." "Then tear me in pieces," said Churchill; and the mob, finding their prey had escaped, did so, indeed; the gallant man falling where he stood, and not another w
