Excerpt from The Young Bride, Vol. 2 of 3: A Novel An omnibus waits for the arrival of the packet each day, to carry away any of the passengers that intend to take up their resi dence at 'the Castle' - that' beautiful castle! Once a ducal hall, now degenerated into an hotel. It is a very handsome edifice, and was built in the last century, when Mona was an independent dukedom, and sat, proudly defiant of England and her laws and customs, pos sessing her own government, privileges, and exempt from all taxes and duties, offering protection to outlaws and refugees, and opening her harbours to shelter and conceal the crafts which bore to Britain the con trabaud goods of France and other continental nations.
