At tho end of half an hour tho Rus
sian flro had sensibly diminished. Wo
left our covor to advanco on tho re
doubt. Our regiment was composed of thrro
liuttulions. Thi wrond had to tnl:o tho
enemy in Hank. Tho two others formed
tho storming parly. I was in tho third.
On issuing from behind tho cover wo
wero reccivod by fovwuI vollryrf, which
did but littlo harm. Tho whistling of

I thought, "a buttlo is lesstcrriblo than
Wo advanced at a smart run,- our
musketeers in front.
All at onco tho Unaslans uttered thrso
hurrahs, three distinct hurrahs, and then
stood silent without firing.
"I don't like thut sileueo," said tho
qaptain. "It bodes no good. " .
I began to think our pcoplo wero too
eager. I could not help comparing,
mentally, their shouts ami clamor with
tho striking ilf urn ef tho enemy.
Wo imiekly reached tho foot of tho
redoubt. The palisades wero broken
and tho earthwards shuttered by our
balls. With n roar of "Vivo 1'cmpo
rourl" our soldiers rushed across tho
I raised my eyes. Novcr shall I forget
tho sight which met my view. The
smoko had mostly lifted and remained
suspended Uko a canopy at 20 feet abovo
tho redoubt. Through a bluish mist
could bo iKrccived behind tho shattered
parapet tho Russian grenadiers with
rifles lifted, as motionless as statues.
I cau seo theni still tho left oyo of ov
cry soldier glaring at us, tho right hid
den by his lifted gun. In an embrasure
at a fow feet distant a man with a fnso
stood by a cannon.
I. shuddered. I bcliovcd that my last
hour had come.
"Now for tho daiico to open," cried
tho captain. These wero tho last words
I heard him speak.
Tliero cmno from tho redoubts a roll
of drums. I saw tho muzzles lowered.
1 shut my eyes. I heard a most appalling
crash of sound, to which succeeded
groans and cries. Then I looked up,
amazed to find myself still living. The
redoubt was onco more wrapped in
smoke, I was surrounded by tho dead
and wounded. Tho captain was extend
ed at my feet. A ball had carried off
his head, and I was covered with his
blood. Of all tho company only six men
txc'pt myself remained erect.
This carnage was succeeded by a kind
of stupor. Tho next instant tho colonel,
with his hat on his sword's point, had
scaled tho parapet with a cry of "Vivo
l'empcrcurl" Tho survivors followed
him. All that succeeded is to mo a kind
of dream. Wo rushed into tho redoubt,
I know not how; wo fought hand to
haud in tho midst of smoko so thick
(hat no man could porcoivo his enemy.
I found my saber dripping blood, I
heard a shout of "Victory 1" aud in tho
clearing smoko I saw tlio earthworks
piled with dead and dying. Tho can
nons wero covered with a heap of
corpses. About 200 men in tho French
uniform wero standing without order
loading their muskets or wiping their
" bayonets. Elovcn Russian prisoners
wero with them.
Tho colonel was lying, bathed in
blood, upon a broken cannon. A group
of Mildicrs crowded round him. I ap
pruauhed them. ,
"Who is tho oldest captain?" ho was
nsk'ng of a sergi'unt.
Tlio sergeant shrugged his shoulders
"Who is tho oldest lioutcnant?"
"This gentleman, who onmo last
