Iti the cloisters of the ancient Benedictine oon-

mouldering yet magnificent monuments of the once
powerful and Chivalrous family of the HiimjuM.
Among these, reclines the marble figure oft knight,

Ilia wife. Donna Maria Palacin, was of a gentle
.and timid nature, little rilled to be the spouse of so
hardy and adventurous a knight ; and many a tear
did the poor lady shed, when he sallied forth upon
his daring enterprises, and nmny a prayer did hc
oiler up for his safety.
As this doughty cavalier was one day hunting,
he stationed himself in a thicket, on the borders of
a green glade of the forest, aud diKmTwd his fol
lowers to rousoibe game, and drive it towards ht

with tenderness aud joy.

a bliat that rung through the fore-it. Hi hunts
im-n came running from nil quarters, and the as
toniihed Moors Mere surrounded and made cap

and her female attendants uttered the most piercjng
. cries. The young Moorish cavalier alone retained
self povsestinn. He inquired the name of the
tliriMiimi knight who coinmaiidi-d this troop of
horeni-!i. W lien told that it was Don Munio San
rhode limojiwa, his counlenance lighted up. Ap
prnachin'' that cavalier, and kisung Ins hand,
' Don Munio Sancho." said he, " I 'inve heard of

""waves tn gvefv direction, and tta'i v
dainties of all kinds collected from the country
rd ; and the wedding (if the Moorish lovers
was celebrated with all possible state and festivity.
For fifteen days the castle was given up to joy and
revelry. There vera tilt'uigs and jousts at the
ring, and bull rights, and banquets, and dancing to
the sound of imnstrtTgy. : When tho fifteen days
were at an and, he made ihe'bride and bridegroom
magnificent presents, and conducted them and
their attendants safoly beyond the borders. Such,
in old times, were the courtexy and generosity of
a onnmsn cavalier.

"One battle more," replied Don Munio. " ooe
battle more for the honor of Castile, and I here
make a vow, that whan this is over 1 will lay by
my sword, and repair with my cavaliers in pilgri
mage to the sepulchre oi our Lord at Jerusalem."
The cavaliers all joined with him in the vow, and
D'Hina Maria felt in aoma degree soothed in spirit:
still, she saw with heavy heart the departure of
ber husband, and watcbed his banner with wistful
eyes, until it disappeared among the trees of the
forest. " '' ,.v
The King of Castile led his army to the plains
of Almunara, where they encountered the Moor
ish host, near to Uclea. The battle was long aud
bloody ; the Christiana repeatedly wavered, and
were aa often rallied by the energy of their com-
Lmander. JW-Muttio-waa covered with wounds,
but refused to leave the field. The Chriatiana at
length gave way, and. lbe King was hard pressed.

exclaimed the old seneschal: my lord returns in

beheld a sumptuous bier, covered with Wsck vel

he lay in his armor, with his homct on his head,
and his sword in his hand, as one who had never
been conquered, and around the bier were the es
cutcheons of (he hmfserof Hinnjmw.-
A number of Moorish cavaliers attended the
bier, with emblems of mourning, and wiih. dejected
countenances; aud their leader cast himself at the
feet of Donna Maria, and hid his face in Ins hands.
She heheld in him the gallant Atmdil, whom h
had once welcomed with his bride to her casing
but who now came with the body of her lord whom
he bad unknowingly slain in battle !
The sepulchre erected in the cloisters of the
Convent of Sun Domingo, was achieved at the ex-'
peiise of the Moor Ahadil, as a feeble testimony of j
his grief for the death of the good knight, Don.
Munio, and his reverence for his memory. The
tender and faithful D mna Maria soon followed her
lord to the tomb: On one of tho stone of a small
arch, beside his sepulchre, is the following simple
inscription: ' Hie jant Maria I'alacin, tutor Mu
noni Sancij De Hinojota:' Here lies Maria
Palacin, wile, of Munio Sancho de llinojosa.

with whom he had been well acquainted in former

The patriarch, therefore, went forth with a grand

OF THE DUKE OF

ton was elevated to the Premiership, Ui 1833, the
London papers teemed with very substantial and
absurd accounts' of bis Grace' habits, iu ridicule
of which the following builesque article apeared
ia ' The Examiner.' It waa written by the cele
brated Albany f onblauque, the editor of that pa
" The DukeXof Wellington generally risea at

chiefly breathes through his Hose, with a "View as

pokes the fire and whistles. If there is no fire be
goes to the window snd looks out. At about teu

. At eleven o'clock, if the weather is fine, the
Duke's horse is brought up to the door. The
Duke's horse on this occasion is always saddled
-end bridled. The Duke's Jiorse is. ordinarily lbe
same white horse he rode at Waterloo, and which
was eaten by the hounds at Surtfieldasy. His
hair is of a chesnut color. Before the Duke goes
out he has his hat and gloves brought to him by
servant. The Duke of Wellington always puts bia
hat on his head, and the gloves on his hands.
The Duke's daily manner of mounting hit horse is
the same that it waa on tlie morning of the glori
ous battle of Waterloo, His grace 6rst takes fhe
rein in his left hand, which be lays on the horse's
mane, be then puts his left foot in the stirrup, with

and seldom tails off, being an admirable equestri
