WAR WITH THE SAINTS.
CHAPTER III.

ABUNDANTLY supplied as the public is with the descriptions of modern travellers, and familiarized too to a great extent by personal observation, with the theatre of this most unholy war, it would now be superfluous to enter upon a minute geographical detail. True it is, that some of our most entertaining tourists, who excel in the minutiae of description, contriving to bring the reader acquainted alike with the features of a landscape and with the individuals who people it, have roamed, and rested, looked, and sketched, and written for days together, in the heart of that scenery where it might be supposed that every hill and valley, every streamlet and plain; every old grey ruin, and rugged mountainpass, must necessarily, yea unavoidably, call up the

most thrillingly-touching reminiscences in the mind of JANUARY, 1845. B

a Protestant, pervading the marrative with congenial thoughts and images ; yet have they passed over, as things unknown or unworthy to be remembered, all that related to the “slaughtered saints” of old. We read the familiar names of Toulouse and Foix, of Bezieres and Carcassone, and perhaps feast our eyes on some spirited sketch of their general outlines, and venerable remains: but in vain do we seek for a passing allusion to what invests them with an interest so deep and dear. This is one of the worst signs of that indifferentism which is eating out the very life of our national religion, and smoothing the way of approach for an enemy as insidiously noiseless now, as formerly he was terrific in the broad display of his unbridled ferocity. However, with so many sources of local information open to all, we need merely to glance at the outline map of those territories through which the sword of bitter persecution cut its sanguinary way. This lay within the Duchies of Aquitaine, Gascoigne and Narbonne ; the Marquisates of Toulouse and Provence, with a small portion of Bearn, and of Basse Navarre. It included the petty sovereignties of Saintonge, Limosin, Perigord, Auvergne, Velay, Agen, Quercy, Rouergue, Gevaudan, and Alby, in Aquitaine; Bourdelois, Armagmac, Fezensac, Astarac, Bigorre, Comminges, and Conserans, in Gascoigne; Uzès, Nismes, Lodeve, Maguelonne, Beziers, Agde, Narbonne, Fenouilledes, and Roussillon, in Narbonne; Toulouse, Carcassonne, Rozes, and Foix, in Toulouse; and in Provence, Viennois, Valentinois, Vivarois, and Arles. The southern boundary of this memorable district is lost among the mountain masses of the Pyrennees, and the waters of the Golf de Lion : clusters of those majestic heights also stretch
