The fleet anchored at Cartagena a second time for ten or twelve days, where it was rejoined by the patache of Margarita and by the merchant ships which had been sent to trade in Terra-Firma. From Cartagena, too, the general sent dispatches to Spain and to Havana, giving the condition of the vessels, the state of trade, the day when he expected to sail, and the probable time of arrival.

Farina was at Margarita's feet offering them in return. 'Wilt thou? said Margarita, with softer stress, and slight excess of bloom in her cheeks. Farina put the purple cluster to his breast, and clutched them hard on his heart, still kneeling. Margarita's brow and bosom seemed to be reflections of the streaming crimson there. She shook her face to the sky, and affected laughter at the symbol.

THE ships were the Consolacion, the Margarita, the Juana and the San Sebastian, all caravels and small ones, the Consolacion the largest and the flagship. The Margarita, that was the Adelantado's ship, sailed badly. There was something as wrong with her as had been with the Pinta when we started from Palos in '92. The men all told, crews and officers and adventurers, were less than two hundred.

It was a scene of flaring feathers, wide-flapped bonnets, flaunting hose, blue and battered steel plates, slashed woollen haunch-bags, leather-leggings, ensigns, and imperious boots and shoulders. Margarita was too hurried in her mind to be conscious of an imprudence; but her limbs trembled, and she instinctively quickened her steps.

Since I think about it, the socials held at Scott's are true, religious, God-fearing gatherings, and you shall go as a punishment for your sacrilegious sneers.

And Margarita heard the ruffian step as if to get swing for a blow. She hurried into the passage, and slipping in front of her father, said to his assailant: 'You have asked for me! I am here! Her face was colourless, and her voice seemed to issue from between a tightened cord.

Margarita had made up her mind that before night she would, by fair means or foul, have a good long talk with Alessandro. "He was fond enough of me last year, I know," she said to herself, recalling some of the dances and the good-night leave-takings at that time. "It's because he is so put upon by everybody now.

Margarita has inherited the form, not the spirit, of the child Transita. She is an exquisite statue endowed with life. Transita, with lines equally graceful and colours just as perfect, had caught the spirit of the wind and sunshine and was all freedom, motion, fire a being half human, half angelic. I saw her only to love her; nor was it a common passion she inspired in me.

Look, my father! they dare not strike me in the street: you they would fell without pity. Go! what they dare in a house, they dare not in the street. Schwartz Thier had opened the door. At sight of Margarita, the troop gave a shout. 'Now! on the doorstep, full in view, my beauteous one! that they may see what a lucky devil I am and have no doubts about the handing over. Margarita looked behind.

"Oh! now I understand you." "Yes," continued Roblado, grinding his teeth against each other, and speaking in a bitter tone; "that precious `margarita, that is yet to be my wife, ha! ha!
