Ono day, H'liile Iio vas present at Vespers on llio uvu of St. .Toll it, Ids attention was excited to some words in tho Magnificat, in consequence of n sudden dropping of llio chorister's voices. Tho words weie these i " Dcjtnsittt potcntcs tie scilc, ct ctallaa'tt lumilics." (lie hath put down the mighty from their scat, and Iritli exalted tin! humble.) Being far too gieat ami warlike a prince to know anything of Latin, lie nsUed a chap- ini near him llio meaning ol these words . I . .. . r.i liantlMimo man ; ami mere was a siroiig ieei ing.it piesent that ho had never in his life looked so well. Robert, when halfway to tho throne, felt ns if a palsy had shuck him. lie stopped, nnd essayed to vent his rage, but could not speak. The figure on the throne looked him stead ily in the face. Hubert thought it was a wit. ird, hut hated far more than he feared him, for ho was o( great courage. II was no tinsel. lint the angel was not going to ilisclosn hiiuselfyel, nor for a long time. Meanwhile, ho licliucd, on the occasion, very niiirh liku ii man; we mean, like a man of ordinarv feelings and I eselitmeiils, ihoilgli still mixed Mid being tohl what it was, observed, thaijwilh a dignity liennd uh.it had been befoie such e.xpression were no better than an old nbseived in the Sicilian monarch. Some of Hut it was told them this fool was most per verso nnd insolent of men toward llio prince himself; unit then, although tho wonder hardly ceased, it was full ol indignation against the unhappy wretch, nnd ho was loaded with every kind .of scorn and abuse. I ho proud King uolicrt seemed the inih blot and disgrace upon the islam). The fool had still a hope, that when his Holiness Iho L'opo saw him, tho niamcianV arts would lie at an end ; for though he had no religion nl all, propel ly speaking, he had retained something even of a superstitious laith in tho highest worldly form of it. I he good pope, however, beheld him wilhoiitthe least recognition: so did tho emperor; and when ho found ihem bolh gazing with un feigned admiration at the exalted beaulv of his former altered self, and not with the old faces of pretended cood will ami secret dis like, a sense of awu and humility fur the fust time full gently iiiiou him. Instead uf gelling as far as possible from his coiupan ion, ihe n pe, he approached him closer, part ly Irum a reeling ol absolute smpa(hv, am shall have my hull team ami load for noth ing ; and ir Unit won't ibnv, I'll give oti my word I'll return tomorrow, and pay yon heartily for your kindness nod condescen sion. 'Well,' siid they, 'we'll take yon at ynnr word ; leavu the team ami provender with us and we wont require an) bail for your ap pearance.' Putnam gave up the leant, nnd sauntered about for an hour or so, gaining all tin- in formation Im wished ; ho then returned to his men, and told the.in of the foe and liis plan of attack. The morning came, and with it sillied nut tho gallant hand. Tho llrilisli ucic bundled with rontdi hands, and when they surrenilei ed In (ion.

King Robert looked at the door in silence, llien round about him nt the empty church, then at himself. His cloak of eiiniiic was gone. The coronet was taken from his cap. The very puvels from his fingers. ' Thieves, verily I' thought the kiiiL', tinning while, for sh lino and rage. ' Hero is conspiracy re bellion I I Ins is lb it sanctilied traitor, tho Duke.

The king, however, was loo much for him. lie felled him lo the ground ; and half strode, half rushed into the palace, fullowed by the exasperated janitor. ' Sei.n him,' cried the porter. ' On vour lives,' cried the king. ' Look at me. fellow : who am I ?' A mad beast and fool ; that's what you are,' ci led the poller. ' And you ro a dead man, fur coining drunk into iho p dace, and hilling the king's servants. Hold him fast.' In came the guards, with an officer at their head, who was going to visit Ins unslress, and had been dressing his curls at a luokiug-ghiss. He had Iho looking-glass in Ins liuiil. 1 Captain Fiaticivillu,' said ihu king, ' is the world run mad? or what is hi l),i exalted the hnmbl Robert was still tongue-lied. He tried in vain lo speak lo roar out his disgust and defiance ; and half mad, indeed, with llio in ability, poinli'd, with his quivering finger, lo llio inside of his mouth, as if in apolugy to the beholdels fur not doing il. Fresh shouts of laughter made his brain seem to reel with in him. ' Fetch the cap and bauble.' said the sov ereign, ' and lei ihu King of Fools have his coronation.' Robert felt that ho must submit to what he thought the power of the devil ; and began to have glimpses of a real though hesilating sense nf I lie iii!vallla"l nf seem inn fl ii-ndshlll j on lite side of Heaven.

Something of. of llio cattle. This proj-' t, though an ex holier feeling than usual had tin ned all beans' periment, promises success. 1000 lings are that day.

In short, Rome fell that day like angel-guv-erned Sicily. When tho service was over, and the sov ereigns had retired "to llieir apartments, the unknown King Robert's behavior was le pmled to tliu unsuspected King-Angel, who had seen il, hut said nothing. The sacrtd iiitciloper announced his intention ol giving llio foul a trial in .limn belter office, and ho sent fur him nccotdingly, having first disuiis so,! every oilier pi-i son.
