THE BOMBARDMENT OF SEBASTCM
POL ON THE 17TH.
A STIBEIXGNABKATIYEBYANETE WITNESS
. ' ' . .
Tho Albion and the Arethusa, bold
and undaunted, entered close, to the
" Wasp " battery, and had scarely time
to open their fire when the cables with
which they were lashed to the steamers
were severed by shot, and they became
unmanageable just at tbe moment when
they were most exposed to the fire of
the enemy."-- The' Albion waa set on fire
in three places, and would have gone on
shore, as she was only ia five fathoms of
water, had not the Cambria come up
in time to rescue her frcm.' destruction,
unfortunately not before she had lost 12
men killed, and 70 wounded. . The Are
thesa, although she suffered less in men,
having only 4 killed and. 14 wounded,
suffered even more in her. hull, -
- The Rodney entered during the latter
part of the action closo to the forts, and
went on the shore-; on a shoal - running
out from Cape Constantine. : Fortunate,
fy it was already dusk, and the Colum
bo at hand, which got her- off ' without
having'enffered great injury. . Not so
much damaged that she w as brought in
in a sinking state, and could only . be
kept afloat by the efforts of therew at
the pumps. ' " ; r : '- . 1
Like the Albion and the " Arethusa,
the Trafalgar could not keep-her place,
or, rather, she never took it up properly,
for the Rodney sent a moorsotu shell
into the mainmast of the Retribution-,
to which the Trafalgar - was lashed ; it
burst it, the- mast went down, and both
vessels" were unfit for action: i , :.'-
- The Bcllerophon may: likewise be
numbered among tho ill-used, . together
with the Sanspariel the- r.'St, although
not without loss, escaped comparatively
unhurt. ' ' ; . .. '
-'The-Old Britania. maintained ber po
sition, and was exposed tos hail of shot
and shell.- - Both she and the . Furious,
to which she was .'ashed, kept np a very
food rocket practice at tlio batteries,
saw towards dusk some very well di
rected ones fly over. The Admiral him
self naroowly escaped a shell, which
burst on the poop.
The Sampson, Terrible, and. Tribune,
advanced like eelaireurs before the An-
ga?nemuon and Sanspariel, which form
ed the main . strength, ot tbis division.
These two after having tried . thtS range
of their long pivot -guns at the-.Wasp
Battery-, steamed right down to the fort
on Cape Constantine -tbe formidable
casemated battery - at the" left on the
entrance into Sebastopol, and .engaged
it. There you could see them Anchored',
the Agameitmon at 800 yards, and the
Sanspareil a littles behind, .enduring
with unshaken .firmness the heaviest fire
of the enemy, and returning it with
great vigor. The situation of the two
screw line-of-battle ships was the -most,
critical possible, exposed as they., we're,
to heavy cross fire, on one side from the.
northermosk .- batteries, running along
the shore, from, the Star fort .inside,.,
and from the whole outward face of- the
fort tri Cape Constantino. - For- two
hoars they had to encounter the whole
fire of thei enemy on; that side, alone,,
when -the Qneen, " having left her.: firt
anchoring place, where the Turkish flap;
' ship had co una in her way, passed inside
of the .other satling Jisie-oi-bnttle sbips
from tiie extrcuie rigbt iett, &cu came
up alongside two heavily pressed., screw
steamers, and urew oil iait ot the eite
my's fire from them-r-a movement which
was acknowledged by Admiral Lyons
by hoieUue tne sigunl. of "Well done,
Queenl" It was a marvellous . sight to
see such an. immense . vessel as the
Oueen casdioir the other liners insid
Uafortnnutely, the respite .which ahe
brought was otdy uiouieutary,- for, being
in but six fatliouia water, she was in
danger of froing' oa . shore nnless she
anchored, while if she had anchored she
would have had to leave her anchors be
hind, and peruaps something more,, for
she had caught fire .from a red hotshot;'
she was thus obliged to yield to the forra
maggiore, and withdraw,. ' ,: ' r'7
" ; The SanspareiljOwiiig to hr unwield
inesa and the defects iu her. propelling
force, "which, faila always when most ncs
sessary, would have had a hard fate had
not the Shark, a. tiny little stream' tag,
which attends the Sanspa 'rcil as a planet
does its sun, or the jackal its. lion, gone
ia and towed "out. " It was a striking
practical illustration of ihe Jion 'and
the mouse, to see the little" Shark help
out the colossal Sattipariel. but at the
same time it was a most gallant feat of
seamanship. . It is reported tnat admiral
Lyons sent iu tho commander of tbe
SAari'with tho word" Go iu ; you will
find there a coffin or your promotion."
. Both the Agememnon and banspareil
were obliged to leave Duoys xor inoir
anchors, "but they left also some heavy
marks of their 'presence on ,'theT face" of
the forts. Both ships did not quit their
posts until nightfall, for Admiral Lyons
determined to be sunK ratuer t&an giyp
in, . . : .; '

.Now, you will wish to know what was
ained by .the ; bombardment.' ' As
told you in my last letter, the batteries
were never more tnan tor a lew moments
silenced, so that is difficult to say weth
er this took place in coDSomieneo of the
injuries sustained, or only iu order to let
the guns cool. Xhc day after the bom
bafdment, the Sampson went down to
see what injury bad bceu dono to tho
forts. Well, they look as if tney were
jnarkcrl-wiih-the a.utdi pa.t:I'li!L'-Iam
afraid it is not of a very dangerous
character, crcept, perhaps, on the north
ern face of the Capo Fort, where at one
the angles two of tho portho:c3 have
cn thrown into one, but a considerably
larger one. There is, indeed a rumor
current that they were obliged to steady
a part of the Cant .tort by butrcsses
but I havo not heard of ar.y one having
actually seen with Ins owu eyes the
butrcsses. ' ' ' '- .
Hero you huve, then, ' the palpable
advantages find disadvantages of the
bombardment before you, and you. may
judge wether the first is wortli tho sec
ond. - ' " -
.The night before ; the bombardment
a boat, with muffliid oars was sent to ex
plore the two shcala ; the crew went all
round; and so close in that they could
hear the" people, talk, and wonld have
been able to understand what' they said,
had they known their language. --Two
small Russian . Steamers which "-were
likewise outside the Sunken vessels when
the action began were lying off the eu
trance, but mistook the- boat as it seems
for a Russian. According to the observa
tions made, tho depth of th water is so
uncertain and variable, that iargc- ves
sels could not enter beyond eight ' fath
oms of water, which scarcely brings them
within 2,500 or 1,600 yards. - "
(From the Constantinople Correspondence of the
---Journal of Commerce) . -
- Incidents of the War,
-THE DISABLED ALBIOS." -''
.' The dismantled and battered French
ship of the line Albion arrived yesterday
in Bujukdcro Bay, towed by - the Orin-
ooob. This vessel, with the Agamemnon
and Sanspareil, bore the' brunt of the
action on the 17th. She bad lo killed
and 72 wounded in . the. day's combat.
She was towed down to Constantinople
this" morning -to be docked. 1 As she
passed, with Lor main and mizzen masts
shot away, and her 'sides showing the
marks of the frag, a land on board play
iugenlivening Jairs a ' etrange contrast
to.the scene which had been witnessed on
board a week before. Sho has several
large holes near the water line, which
have been temporarily boarded up and
painted; and the round marks of the
shot are to equal to thaf "of ;a first rate,
with her battered aspect and the interest
attaching to the fight, attracted, .crowds
during her passage down the Bosphorus.
The spectators eyed her silently with
various ideas and sympathies the E&S"
lish, with pride, mingled wit'i sorrow,
the Turka with apathy which might veil
any other feeling ; other parts of the
population with something like '-secret
gratification.1 - ; l.,:
' ". ;the slaughter, is coming. : " ;
- No one can say what will be the num
ber of wounded in the great . assault,
which may one day take place.'. It ; is
well to state the truth at once. Alma
is likely to have been far less deadly
than the struggle which' will take place
in the breaches of Sebastopol. , The
enemy .here will probably be unable to
retreatj and if he hayo a trace ct cour
age, or even of natural ingtinct, he will
defend himself with desperation. Every'
street may have its .barricade, and flic
very ground over which the. assaulting
regiments pass raaj coiiccai the "deadly
mine. .' . ..... . '
;...''' , A BACK EXPECTED. ' -
The prisoners and even the deserters
say .that the Russian generals ,as -deter
mined to leave the' place a' iuin. ' Tho
women aud children may" prbbably have
been sut over to the northern Aide. . it
is to bo hoped that they may Be ptaefed
in safety before the final assault, for
such is tho obstinacy of the defeuce that
the rage of the soldiers is being roosed
and assuredly the Zmaves aud other
African regiments will display no small
ferocity when the place is sacked.
FRESH TROOFS NX.VE THOUSAND
' DEAD WITHIN EIOarrVEEKS.
'. The allies are no doubt ii. want of
fresh troops. The effective British force
is not more than .10,000, so great lias
been the void made by battle aud disease.
JNo less that 9,000 . mou aro dead or
horsde combat, in tho! last eight weeks.
More Turkish troop3 are'bcir.a ssrit up;
to-day the GoUcii Flectie arrive J 'here
from Volo, with '2,000 troops, who are
Engaged in opposing tho Greek invasion.

HORRIBLE SCENES .WITHIN SEBASTOPOL.
We have advices -from bebastopol to
the '25th. Vt'oiuen and children are
said to be lying unburied in. the streets :
everything is neglected iu orber to keep
up the deteace. . .. The Russians are con-
straethig another lino of works, behind
their present oaes :: they have .plenty of
guns and ammunition. r
DEATHS IN THE BBfUSH ARMT 80 PER DAT 1
The British' effective infantry is now
about 15,000, the French 35,000, the
Turks 11,000. t The nrtilierymen; are
being worn out by inossant toil. - The
are 12 hours out of the 24 1 in trenches,
instead of the usual 8. The loss; of ef
fective; strength , from sickness ; aud
-wouur1?, amounts, iu the British ree, to

THE LAND AND SEA. FIOHT ON THE 17X21.
On the morning of tho 17th, when the
cannonade opened, it vra.a 'intended to
Storm the works during the day, should;
the effect of tho shot ,and shell on tbe
Russians render the phtn possible. rO je
part of the scheme was,' that the fleets
should attack the great batteries' at the
mouth of the bay, so as to make aidver
sion and draw a -certain number of the
Russian artillerymen from their gurs.
, THE RUSPL1XS OUX AX ADVASTAGB.
The cannonado comajCaced.f.t 7. a. in.;
and all went well uuti! Boms of the
Freneh works, wero enfiladed by
Russians, rind that .the Litter . were
able" to keep .up a " xuneh stronger
fire than was at first supposed. The
terrible explosion which took plaer o;i

thing in.to confusion ; a.ul many .of their
guns wero dismounted, and tnousra the
loaj-Ju.' inHir imi nih.ii .nw.S.., J ?
men, yet the . d:scour:irTsi.'nt produced
seems to have been very i-.rsat.
THE FRENCH BATTEI'T. SILErft'ED.
The main features ofths actioa for
the next few hours were, a vigorous fire
ou the part of the British, returned by
ono equally obstinate from the Russian
works, while the French were only firing
occasional shots along part of their liue-
and in some places their battens Tero
silenced altogether. AbojjlHtd d.-iy the
fleets stood iu to cturrftfrbe batterits at
the mouth of the bay. ' ' ' : .
DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN TIIE ENGLISil AND
FRENCH.. ' t- - :
It is said that eome disagreement took .
place between the French and 'British-
authorities, and that Admiral ' Dundas
gave in to the views of his Freneh col
league, wbo8 plan was ad.pio J. ', At all
events the French went in and engaged
the batteries on their "right;. ' The lire
of their vessels was as efTecti-. e 3 Co xld
be expected, and in better circumstances
the combined fleets might "have won an
easy victory, .' r ''" " ' '" '' '" ; ; 4
...... THE British, 'J-'. "'. !
The British line was anchored alon"
the left point of the eartaaoe, at a dis
tance oi about 900 'yards. . 1 he Aga-
viemnon poured.'ii an" iucesbUJit fire on
Fort Constantine, and at about 3 o'eloek
a loud explosion took place inside, which
no doubt, occasioned great damage, for
the Rnssian fire slackened co Isiderabl.
for nearly half an hour.'-., . ' '.' i
. THE TURKS. : . J
The Sphiux, newly arrived fronu$)
Baltic, went iu firing her long fore and
aft guns at Fort Coustantine with con
siderable effect, for the enemy r tbok"
especial pains to be rid of her, and the
shots which fell around her kept . the sea
in a continual foam. JL wo or three Turk
ish sail of the line also stood in aud fired
at the batteries on the Constanttue side.
Their practice was not .badv . "'
INEFFBCTVAL PAXNOri ADING. , '.
The water in tho neighborhood of the
works on each side-is a shoal, and it is
impossible for eveii a frigate to run in
closer than from 800 to l.OpOajatrds. At
such a distance, the action of e'vot upon
stone walls is only trifliug. The. conse
quence was that although the enemy wero
i . i .t..:. . C
several limes uriveu iruiu mcir guua, oi
which not a few wero dismounted, yet .
the damage done to the: works which'
guard the entrance to Sebastopol was
extremely small..- -, i-v -' . ...
TUE RUSSIAN GUNNERS :'. v, ,
The precise loss of the Fre'ich is not
yet learned. The. Ville de Paris engaged
the Uuarantine. Isattcry: and after an
hour's firing the Russian gunners 'were
driveu off; they,-" ' however,-- returned
shortly afterwards .and renewed the
fight. ;At about three o'clooi: tbey.seoin
ta have began to open witn red not
shot. Some time after this a shell cairne
into tho 'Yillc de' Paris, 'and blew'away
a great part of her poop dock, killing and j
wounding a consiuoraDie numner- oi men.

The charge of the "Light Brigade of
Cavalry on the batteries of the enemy,
some 30 go ns strong, though brilliantly
and bravely dioue, waa most disastrous
in its consequences to that gallant aud
devoted band, for' it seems that out of
700 who went .. into the. fray, only 130
snayerd .their roll when it was .pver;'
and it appears to have been. done under;

him several pricks, and rather staggered
him in his saddle; but his Jsordship be

brave men ever are in real danger, par
ried their thrusts and escaped with the
aforesaid lance-pricks in his leg.
'; THE FLIGHT OF THE BRIGADE
A more fearful ' spectacle was never
witnessed than by those who, without
the power to aid, beheld their heroic
countrymen rushing to the arms of death.
At the distance of 1,200 yards The whole
line of tbe enemy belched forth, from 30
iron mouths, a flood of smoke and name,
through which hissed the deadly balls.
Their flight was marked by instant gaps
in our ranks, by lead men and horses,
by steeds flying wounded or riderless
across the plain.
Tho first line is broken, it is joined
by the Beoond ; they never halt or check
their speed an instant; with diminished
rankBi thinned by those 30 giuiB whieh
the Russians had laid: with the most
deadly accuracy, with a halo of flashing
steel abdve their heads, and with a cheer
whioh was many a noble fellow s death-
cry, they flew into the smoke of the bat-
tbe plain waa strewed with- their bodies
and with the carcasses of the lio-ses. -

' Wounded men aud dismounted troop

had failed to do. At the very moment
when they were about to retreat an
enormous mass of Laocers was hurled
on their flank. Col. Shewell, of the 8th
Hussars, saw tho danger, and rode his
men straight at them cutting his way
through with fearful loss. ' The other
regiments turned and engaged in s des
perate encounter.- "

Oct. 23, 26.The enemy seemed-eiip're"
afraid of our Ltancasters this morhrng;
and we are told ' they' are drawing "to
wards tbe French. The latter-become
more vigorous in their fire, and are do
ing marKed damage on the ten or their
liufti : ' Their energy in working the. new
parallels is rapidly producing its results,
and their works are creeping up hour af
ter hour to the enemy s walls. - The
Steamer " Vladimir " came np ta the
bead of the harbor, and opened fire on
the right attack of our men. She threw
her shells with: beautiful accuracy, and
killed two men and - wounded twenty
others, ere we could reply effectually.
Our men also commenced a new battery.
to be armed with 32 pounders to fire on
the shipping below..! Ihe site of this is
on the left of, and in front of, the left
attack, and it will not be further -than
550 yards from tbe placo. . . This is good
distance for red hot bhot; and great
things are expected from it.
HOW LORD DUNKELIN WAS CAPTURED.
Lord Dunkelin was out with a work'
ing party of his regiment, when a num
ber of men were observed through 'the
dawning-fight in therine in front of
them. "There are1 the Russians," ex
claimed one of tbe men. "Nonsense,
theyvre our fellows," said his lordship,
and off ho went towards them, asking in
a high tone as he got near.' -"Who is in
command of this party ? " His men saw
him no more. -' As they were unarmed
they retreated rapidly, but there is no
fear of his lordship's safety, for ; the
Russians fired no shot, and merely clos
ed round and seized him ere he could
get away. No doubt he will be well ta
ken care of, and forwarded probably to
St Petersburg. x--
-'' A " BELL'" BY THE RUSSIANS;' '
The Russians opened a heavy can
nonade on us this morning ; they always
have done so on Sundays.- "Divine eer
vioe was performed with continued bass
of cannon rolling through the. responses
and liturgy.- The French - terribly ent
up by the ' Garden - Battery, more so,
however,1 by their ' misfortune of last
night. '' The Russians made a steady
sortie towards morning, and advanced
olos to the French pickets. ' When
challenged, they rSplied, "Inglis, Inglis,"
which passes muster with our alies as
hvni jid English they say, and ere they
know where they were, the Russians had
charged them, gut into. their batteries
and. spiked five mortars! "They 'were
speedily repulsed ; but this misadven
ture has mortified our brave allies' ex

SH AMeSUL CONDUCT OF .THE TURKS. V
Had our Turkish friends only spiked
the guns before deserting them it would
have been Ie83'disaster6us;- but that our
own guns should be mde use of, with
our own ammunition against ns, aud that
through the cowardly conduct, of these
men, for whom we are sacrificing Eng.
land's best blood and treasure, is too
provoking - and discreditable to write
about ; and I am sorry to say -that,, not
content with deserting their post, they
could lay their hands on,' even to tbe
very breakfasts which some men of the
Grays were preparing for their officers,
who. were then out in the face of the
enemy. The universal feeling is, that a
very severe example should be made of
this flagrant set of . cowardice, the prob
able result of which will be another hard
fought battle, with A possibility of evac

moment on -our own cavalry. We saw
Brigadier-general Scarlett ride along
in front of nis massive squadronBHie
Rnssians-evidently carpi d'elit&Sihcir
light blue jackets embroidered with-sil
ver, lace,-were Advancing on their left, at
an easy gallop towards the brow of the
hill.' A forest of lances glistened in i
their rear, and several squadrons of grey
coated dtagooDS moved up quickly to
support them as they reached tho sum
mit, ibe .instant, they. came, in , sight
the warning blast, which told us that in
another moment we would see the shock
of battle beneath our very eyes,- Lord
Raglan, sll his staff and escort, and
groups of officers, the Zouaves, French
generals and officers, and bodies of
Freneh infantry on the heights, were
spectators of the scene as though they
were looking on the stage from the boxes
of c a , theater.. .Nearly . every . one d is
mounted "and sat down, and not a word
was said. , ' ", : . .- ' r
.. TUB RUSSIANS ARE COMDJOV , '
.The Russians advanced down the hill
at a slow canter, which they changed to
a trot and at last nearly halted. Their
first line waa at least doable the length
of ours it was three times as deep be
hind them was a similar line; " equally
strong and compact." They evidently
despised their 'insignificant-looking ene
my, out their time was come, ihe
trumpets rang out again through the
valley, and the Greys and Enniskilleners
went right at the center of the itussian
cavalry. . The space between them was
only A few'hondred. yards; it was scarce
ly enough to let the horses "gather way,?1
nor had the men quite space sufficient for
the full play of their sword arms. The.
Russian line brings forward each wing
as our cavalry advances and threaten to
annihilate- them as they pass' 3D.'.. Tuni
ng. a little to their left so as to meet the.
Russians-right, the Greys rush on with
s cheer that thrills to every heart the
wild about of the Enniskillencrs rises
through the sir at the same instant.' As
lightning flashes through a cloud, the.
Greys and Enniskilleners pierced throngh
the dark masses of B&ssiaus. '"

By sheer steel and oourage Ermieirill-
cner and Scots were winning their, des

of the second mass, when, with irresist
