鈥楴ov. 6.鈥擨 have lately been paying more attention to children in the Zenanas,鈥攑artly perhaps because they seem to pay more attention to what I say. When they listen in perfect stillness, one cannot but hope that the young hearts are receiving some seed of life. I had very quiet, attentive little listeners in a Zenana yesterday. When I went to another, some of the children followed me, but the bibi forbade them to come in. In vain I pleaded that they did not make the least noise; she bade them go and play. But after I had read to that woman, and proceeded to another house, children came after me, I think two or three of the same ones. That little book, with gaily-coloured pictures, about little Daisy, which you sent me, is invaluable....鈥? A.D. 1864-1866 We have often spoken of the entire neglect with which the king treated his virtuous and amiable queen. Preuss relates the following incident: Horatia. [Aside.] Horridly drunk! [Aloud.] Put on this dress and fly. It is your only chance of life. 天天色,天天干,天天操,天天射,天天好逼网,天天色综合网 Although Mrs. Wade could speak of her 鈥榳alking powers鈥?as 鈥榳onderful,鈥?Miss Tucker had at this period hardly the same unvarying good health as in earlier years. A few days later she was laid by with an attack of 鈥榮hingles,鈥?with pain in the side. The Native doctor, called in, informed her that nothing was wrong with either lungs or heart,鈥攖he pain which troubled her being 鈥榮imply from the nerves,鈥?which were 鈥榓ffected by the eruption.鈥?Miss Tucker assured him that she was not nervous. Upon which, as she relates, 鈥榯he Hindu doctor smiled quietly, and gave me to understand that nerves are real things. He had not meant that I was fanciful. So the whole thing was simple enough,鈥?she philosophically adds. 鈥楾o make a bull, I had a little toothache in my side.鈥?The attack gave way readily. Frederick angrily replied, 鈥淵ou can have no instructions to ask that question. And if you had, I have an answer ready for you. England has no right to inquire into my designs. Your great sea armaments, did I ask you any question about them? No! I was, and am, silent on that head.鈥?0 鈥楬ere I am at home again, after my strange little visit to Amritsar; short, but by no means unimportant. All our five ladies have crossed the Rubicon; they have sent in their resignations, with the usual six months鈥?notice. It remains to be seen whether the new 鈥淐hurch of England Zenana Society鈥?will or can take them all on! We know not what the state of their funds will be, as they begin on nothing. Our ladies, with Mr. Weitbrecht the Secretary, seemed to have no hesitation as to what course to pursue,鈥攖hat of resignation....

On the 9th of July, 1715, Lord Coningsby, attended by many of the Commons, carried up to the Lords the articles against him, sixteen in number, to which afterwards six more were added. The first fifteen related to the Peace of Utrecht; the sixteenth to the sudden creation of twelve peers in 1711, in order to create a Tory majority, by which it charged him with highly abusing the constitution of Parliament and the laws of the kingdom. When the Articles had been read, it was doubted whether any of the charges amounted to high treason. To decide this as a legal point, it was moved that the judges should be consulted; but this motion was rejected, and another was made to commit Oxford to the Tower; and, though reprieved a few days on account of an indisposition, he was committed accordingly, having made a very solemn plea of his innocence, and of having only obeyed the orders of the queen, without at all convincing the House. He continued to lie in the Tower for two years before he was brought to trial, matters of higher public interest intervening. Eventually the impeachment was dropped, the documentary evidence being considered insufficient.
