His sword reached the side nfth-3 Kirl, which was left ex fioed by an imprudent pass. Some convulsive moments accompanied by tho broken worth, ' Anna I I die repent on I' were tho lal sinus of life that he gave. Tho seconds in vain bur-rh-d to liis assistance. tho soul of tho Karl of Shrewsbury was already before It (Soil ! Tlie favorite of Charles the Second manifest ed neither regret nnr sorrow. as lie looked upon tlie sad sceno before him. He with perfect noil rhalonre wiped dry tho blond stained blade of Ids sword as ho turned towards his page. In the delicacy nf the features of that page in the small wai-t in thr sweet face, fearful and pile in the-bhck.plossy anil culling hairs that fell upon the swan like neck In all that timidity, Brace ami delicacy, It was easy to recognize the henralh the nine's disguise. It was In short tlie Countess or .Shrewsbury, that her love, her fears, her remorse bad brought to the place of comb it, protected by a dress which it was hoped would conceal her identity from the eyes nf nil. This is a fact of which Hume and other historians speak. As Soon as she saw her husband fall 'he sank upon her knees, and cried, 'Alas, ulas ! I am tlie murderess, too, of my husband !' and then turn ing In the Duke of lluckingham, she said us she burst into tears, ' You it id you, my lord, who lia slain him !' ' Yes it was tho lot reserved for one or the other of us. Would you hive sooner seen ine fall V ' OIi, no, nn, Heaven knows ! Neither. But repentance.' ' llcncntanee !' repeated tho Pake with n smile ' it will be time enough to think of that s lien our hairs are white. At theso words the countess slowly rawed her bead, and looked in tho pitiless face of him who had without tho slightest remorse or scruple, c..ii into the gulf of infamy hcr.char.ictor and her honor. ' My hairs will grow white in tho cloister, tnv Ltir.l Duke,' sin- said, in atone which show ed that her rc-nltitinn could not bo shiken. ' From this day hencefoilh, 1 live no longer for or in this would.' At this moment the poet Waller came from behind the ruins of i'rinry. Occupied for two thys with tho co n,io-irio;i tint 11 ic!iug!iam had assigned, he know nothing of the events at St. Juiius l'alacc, or the sad eHects of bio indis cretion. ' My lyird Duke,' said he, ' I have finished my satire.' "Tho favorite of Charles tho Second took tho band of the old Poet, and then pointing to the dead body of tho Ear of Shrewsbury, drily re mirkcd, 'and 1 have jut completed my tragedy.' ' It is a witty turn my lord,' murmured tlie terrifiod old man: 'but the joke is a dear onu to mo, for it has cost me one thousand pounds !' Whigs or Vermont, what say voU I Shall It ho said that YOU nro behind tho gallant Whigs of Tennosseo in your opposition to this ar or Conquest and Aggression, and to the principles and measures or tho I'arty who brought it about and who maintain Its justice and righteousness ? Will not tho Green .Mountains echo back the noblo judgment, the scorching verdict, or Ten nessee ? Is James A". Polk better known in Vermont than ho is in Tennessee ? His own state has, twice In four years, refused to sustain him, his measures or his friends a circum stance without a precedent in the history of tho country ! 'Pheij , how h im, Whigs of Vermont' Tho Locofoco presses of the state are 1'dled with denunciations or those who honestly believo that this miserable war Is unnecessary and unjust, that it was commenced without authority and is continued without honor. They call us " Mexican" and " trui tors." In the same langn.rgo did Locofocoism denounce tho gallant Haskell and tho Whig I'arty in Tennessee ! Verily, thoy have their reward ! Tho time lias gone hy when empty and frothy partisan denunciation like this would carry captive the popular mind. Tho people are not deluded by it. They think and judge for themselves ; and the falsehoods of a pension ed Press, and th" shallmv ravings of shallower brained party hacks " pass by them as tho idle wind which they regard not. Sir. Dlllinslinm's single friend, Hut one locofoco paper in Vermont has had the courage and tho hardihood to oiler tho slight est defence of tho shnllling, inconsistent, and indefensible course of Mr. Dillingham as a Re presentativo of tlie people of Vermont in the National Congress. That paper is the Xnrth Shir. We trust it will bo honorably rcmctn bereil as a paper willing to make a martyr of itself in the cause of Locofocoism! Wo have so much respect for it thai we give, below, what it valorouslv says for its candidate tor Governor, Behold! The Whigs mul Mr. Dilllnylmm. irrcc llURLiNGTO.V, VI, FRIDAY MOUNING, Alio, knows to bo milrue, Is something trow than a ''calumniator." , Hut again j the filar says " two Whig mem bers from Hhodc Island'' voted "directly against tho Proviso" ! We deny It point blank! The Wilmot Proviso had no truer or moro consistent friends In the House than Messrs. Arnold and CitANsTov, tho " two Whig members from Hhodo Island" ! They voted FOR the Proviso, and wo aro obliged to toll the Star that It knew it, when it "calumniated" them. Hut wo now como to tho true reason, (the only one that can be offered) lor Mr. Dillingham's dodging the Proviso. Wo have been waiting for somo Locofoco to exhibit boldness enough to offer It. The Slur Is the man ! And what is It 7 Why, says tho Star, " the. alternative was presented if losing the three million bill or the I'roiiso," and Mr. Dillingham "bid not vote AT all 1" Now, then, freemen of Vermont, wo ask you to examine this reasoning of the only apologist for Paul Dillingham that has yet arisen! We aro told that an " alternative of the gravest Importance and consequence was presented to him and that " HE DID NOT VOTB AT ALL"! Is this tho purposo for which Paul Dillingham was sent to represent tho Freemen of Vermont in the National Coun cilsto DODOE ALTERNATIVES I Wo supposed his duty to bo to meet & decide drtween them ! Hut what ims tho altenutlvo Nothing more or less than whether a great principle of freedom and humanity, a principle which would exclude Slavery forever from all Territory that might be acquired through this miserable War of conquest against Mexico, should be established,! James A". V., tho pro-slavery author of tho War, should be furnished with the paltry sum of three millions of dollars to be expended at his discre tion cash agiinst conscience, and freedom against slavery. And we aro gravely told by the only apologist of Paul Dillingham that lias hitherto ventured to titter a word in his defence, that on such an alternative, ho " did not vote ai all'' ! ! Verily, Mr. Dillingham needs tho whole strength of Ins " irreproachable private reputa tion"' to rescue his chiracter from tho fatal ef fects of tho apologies of his friends ! Getting somewhat mixed up. Having nothW to say In behalf of its candi date for UoveWr,- tho Montnclicr Patriot has lately got itself considerably Into the Sentinel vein of philosophizing.
