led the cart at the enhance of ihe Pue St

scalloiii. lie engrax'en in ins neaii, in
iiole his oxvu words "this unutterable sw eet
ness amid the barbarous cries of the crowd,
that look so gentle, ycl pcuctiating those
vivid Hashes thill broke foilh like burning
ideas from Ihose bright eyes, in which spoke
a soul as intrepid as tender. Charming eyes,
which should have melted a stone."
Thus an enthusiastic and unearthly attach-
menl accompanied her, xvillioul her know
ledge, to the very scallold, and prepared to
follnxv her, in hope of an eternal re-union.
The carl stopped, and Charlotte, at tho sight
of the falal iutrumeul, tinned pale, but, soon
rrcoveiing herself, ascended the scaffold wilh
as light and rapid a step as the long cheuiiso
and her pinioned anus perinilled. When
tlio executioner, to baie her neck, removed
llie handkerchief that covered her bosom,
this insult to her modesty moved her more
than her impending death ; then, tinning to
ill- guillotine, sho placed herself under '.he
axe. The heavy blade fell and her head rolled
on (lie sea ffuli I. Ono of the assistants, named
Lfgros, took il in his hand and struck it on
the check, lt is said lli.it a deep crimson
stilfiision oveisprciid the face, as though dig
nily and modesly had for an instant l isted
longer even than life.
Such xvas the death of Maiat ; and such
xvas the life and death of Chailollo Coiday.
In Iho face of murder, history dares ml con.
ileum. Tho appreciation of such an net
places us in the terrible tdleruativo of bla
ming virtue or applauding nsssaseiiiiition.
Like ihe painter who, desj airingof rendering
the expression of a mingled seiilhneiil, cast a
veil over tlio face of tho figure, we must leave
this niysleiy lo be debated in the abysses of
Ihe human heart. There are deedsof which
men are no judges, and xvhich iiiouul, w ith-
out appeal, direct to tho liiluuiiil of (iod
There are human actions so strange a mix
turo of weakness and strength, pure intent
and culpable means, error uud truth, minder
and inailj r.loin, that wo know not w hether
tii term iheni ciime or viitne. The culpable
devotion of Chailollo Coiday is among lho.su
acts which admiration uud honor would leave
eleiiiiilly in doubt, did not molality reprove
Iheni. Had we lo liud for his beautiful I ihe
ralrix of lier country, and geneioiis murder
ess of a tyrant, a uanio which should at once
convey lite ciilhiisiasni of our feelings toward
her and the severity ol cur judgment on her
action, we would coin a phra combining
the exlr nie of a. Imiia'ioa and horror, ami
term her Ihe Angel of Assassination.
A lew days allerwanl, Adam l.ux publish-
ed the "Apology ol Charlolle Cmday," and
associated himself with her deed, in eider lo
