Theydid- not move or come out of the
houses to oppose my advance. ' The 18
pounders opened with good effect upon the
state building near the mill. Capt. Sau

ried two 18 pounders, took up a position
below the windmill, which lie comnmenced
but not with much effect. Aftereantiona
ding these buildings for an hour or ratlier
more, and observtng the brigands to be

little resistance was :oIiercd by the party
