Queen ELIZABETH. The accession of this our accomplished “ Amazonian Queen” to the English throne operated most loudly in favour of humanity by raising the lower States to their natural importance, breaking a lance against the mental or physical tyrannies of Europe, and nourishing native genius, industry, and enterprise, wherever they appeared. “ She was crowned,” says Raleigh, " held a parliament, brake it up, threw down images, and reformed many things in religion, all in her first year, but not all in that year, 1558, but the greater part in the year following, whether we begin with the 1st of January, or with the 25th of March.” The famous “ Tilt” before her Majesty at Westminster on the resignation of Sir Henry Lee, her voluntary Champion in arms, is described in Segar's “ Honour,” and poetized by George Peele, 1590. The Queen's ' Day,' in 1602, appears in the Royal Progresses. With the Society of the Temple this is considered the grand day of the year.

The Parliament at Marlborough assembles, memorable for the popu. lar laws which were passed there, 1267. “ To crown this important work, and to extinguish, if it were possible, the very embers of discontent, the clergy were brought forward with a grant of a twentieth of their revenues, as a fund which might enable those who had been prevented by poverty to redeem their estates according to the decision of the arbitrators of Kenilworth.” Two years later the deputies of towns were present at the Spanish Cortes. It was “ the most early infusion of a representative principle into a European legislature; which has been ascribed to the necessity of bribing men by political privileges to garrison as well as inhabit towns exposed to the perpetual attacks of the Mahometans, from whom they had been recently conquered."
