a small town. There the ensign of Spain flut

be used as a barrack.

Reggio. =I must descend.'
Reggio dismounted and took her to a rock
upon which she sat.
'Christian we must part here.'

The veil fell from her head, and the maiden
stood up before him. And never, even among
the beauties of his own native laud, had Reg

black and lustrous. Her hair was black as

luxurious locks like stars.

We have seen the breakfast room and table of
many in America more richly furnished. The
apartments wore quite an air of poverty, after
having seen those at Versailles, the Quirinal,
and Turin. But the underground apartments
possess a fearful interest. With lighted tor
ches we went down into the cellar of the pal
ace, thence by a spiral inclined plane, we
went down, down, until, by a door formed of
one huge flag, and fitted to its place with re
markable exactness, we entered a small oval
room, perhaps ten feet in diameter, and hewn
out of a solid rock. The door was shut behind
us, and we were buried alive under the moan
taiu! A ray of light came from above, and
we could look up as through a narrow chim
ney; a stone was moved beneath our feet, awl
we could look down perhaps two or three hut
dred feet, and could see a glimmer of light up
on a dashing current, whose murmurings came
to us from beneath. And all around the room
were seats cut out from the rock. And what
was the knowledge and history of this awful
Its history, as given us by our guide, and
within its walls, is briefly as follows: In the
days of feudal clemency and inquisitorial pie
ty, those suspected of political or religious
heresy were suddenly seized and confined in
one of the adjacent cells. The little room
above described WAS the room of judgement,
and the judges were let down by machinery
through the claming above. The accused
were then introduced, and that heavy stone
door was shut. And there shut out from eve
ry eye save that of God and their judges, they
were tried and condemned. If not guilty, the
accused were hated or feared, which made con
demnation worse than guilt. When condemn-
ed, thy were nevt orderotl to kiss L$ haws
of the virgin in the apartment; in the move.-
ment, they touched springs, which caused her
to embrace them, and in the embrace, to
pierce them through with daggers. Then a
trap was sprung beneath their feet, which let
their bodies fall upon a wheel armed with
knives, which was kept in constant revolution
by a stream of water; by these knives they
were cut in pieces, and the mutilated frag
ments fell into the stream below.
And there we were receiving this awful nar
rative, in the very apartment where these
atrocities were committed in the name oflus
tiee and Religion, with the tunnel beneath us,
through which the bodies of their victims
were let down for mutilation, so as to be be
yond the reach of recognizance! For a mo
ment our blood ran cold, and we were filled
with horror! Oh! if those stone seats, and
those walls of solid rock could speak—if the
injunctions of perpetual secrecy were remor_
el' by him who upheaved the mountain, what
an awful narrative they w , ,u:il give of the
scenes of treachery, hatred, and blood, there
perpetrated in the name of God and Religion.
The stone door swung open and we groped
our way through a labyrinth of chambers and
passages dark as midnight into the open air,
We all breathed easier and a feeling of fear
gave way to one of security. We were soon
on the railway from Frankfort-on-the-Main,
deeply affected by the beauty and wickedness
of Baden-Baden, thankful that -its days of pe
nal tyranny were at an end.
We look with horror upon a time and creed
which could enact such terrific scenes as are
described in the above article.

evils of our day and creed. - 16 my
