HOLYROOD: EDINBURGE CASTLE: MELROSE: ABBOTSFORD: DRYBURGE.

THERE is hardly a street in the old town of Edinburgh that has not its traditions, and the entire locality is alive with historical associations of the most intense interest: yet there is no student either of romance or history but gives to the time-honored precincts of Holyrood and its ruined Abbey Church the precedence over all others. How many wanderers from every region of the earth have traversed the old thoroughfare of the Canongate to visit these venerable piles! In the words of one of the sweetest of our own poets :

'PILGRIMS, whose wandering feet have pressed

The Switzer's snows, the Arab's sand;
Or trod the piled leaves of the West,

My own green forest-land.” Holyrood Palace is a gloomy-looking structure, with pinnacled turrets and a dark exterior that sends a chill to the heart. The existing palace consists

of the north-western towers, (the remnant of the royal dwelling of Queen Mary,) and the more recent structure erected by Charles the Second. The palace built by Charles is a quadrangular building, having a square court in the centre. At either extremity is a massive square tower, four stories high, having three circular towers or turrets at its exterior angles, which rise from the ground to the battlements of the main tower, terminating in conical roofs. These two great towers are connected by a receding screen or range of buildings, of mixed architecture

, which is considerably lower than the interior sides of the quadrangle

, so that the pediment of the eastern side is distinctly visible to one looking at the western elevation. In the centre of this front is the grand entrance, composed of four Roman Doric columns, over which are sculptured the royal arms of Scotland, below an open pediment, on which are two reclining figures, the whole surmounted by a small octagonal tower, terminating in an imperial crown.
