“How changed since last her speaking eyo

Glanced gladness round the glittering room,
Where high-boro men were proud to wait,
Where beauty watched to imitate

Her gentle voice and lovely mien-
Add gather from her air and gait

The graces of its queen!"-BYRON.

PRE FACE.

THE leading incidents of the following story were suggested by circumstances in the life of a near relative, long since, we trust, in Heaven, I have used the novelist's privilege in giving a happier termination to the fiction than is warranted by the facts.
