Before the accession of Aunc, aad whilo
yet a princess, a lady in wait gained bur
love and confidence. This was the noto
rious Sarah Jennings, Duchess of Marl
borough. She was avaricious, ambitious,
very vain. Understanding that her mis
tress would wield the sceptre, she made
use of every devise to ingratiate herself
into the good graces of the future Queen.
Like the witch in " Macbeth," ske stirred
round and round the boiling cauldron In
which her slowing fancy had pleat j all
opposers of the Whig party.
It was midnight, aad a pale cold moon
lit up the pirea of London. Tke Tower
stood gloomily against tke sky, a terror to
a crouching race. In it Marlborough I ad
been immured by William. Tbe street
were deserted, and on the great brides
quietude reigned supreme. No footsteps,
pattered on tbe side-walks; ao hilarity
proceeded from tbe alia house ; ao jocu
larity rang its merry peal in the -club-rooms
the coffee-houses, the SeriUcrv'
ctub$ of England's golden age. All was
solemnly still. The palace was disrobed
of its pageantry, hollow pomp No live
ry-man was visible. No dragoon, spur
red and belted, trotted along the avenues;
nor did tbe sheen of a belmeted sentin i
appear anywhere. In one of ihe kingly
kalis lay the King. Not a whisper of
the air was audible. Tbe uniformed par
.sites of tbat great man had alf vanished.
None stood there to do him honor. What
cared they, he was no longer of this
world. His victories in behalf of the
Prelacy were forgotten; anyhow, were
not sufficiently resplendent to bring a sole,
to his bier. There he lay, powerless, in
the cold embrace of all-powerful death.
