\ Tho mule stood on thesteamboat deck,
The land he would not tread ;
They put the halter round his neck,
And cracked him o'er the head.
Bat obstinate and brace he stood,
As born the scion to rule,
A creature of the hold-back brood,
A stubborn steadfast mule.
They cursed and swore-he would not go
L1 neil he felt inclined ;
And though they thundered blow on
He altered not his mind.
Tho deck-hand to the shore complained
" The varmint's bound to stay ! '
And still upon the critter's hide
Tie sounding lash made play.
His master from the shore replied,
" The boat's about to sail ;
As other means in vain you've tried,
Suppose you twist his tail ;
"It's likely that will make him land,"
The deck hand, brave though pale,
The nearer drew, with outstretched hand
To make the twist avail.
There came a kick of thunder Bound;
The deck hand--where was he?
Ask the waves that far around
Beheld him in the sea !
A moment not a word was heard ;
But winked the mule his eye,
As though to ask to him occurred
"Now, how was that for high ?"
" Just cut his throat," the captain roared,
"And end the cussed brute!"
But the noblest soul that perished there
Was he who tried to do 't!'
It was toward the close of the first
Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Rus
sia, that a party of French officers
were assembled in a rude tent, re
freshing themselves after the fatigues
of a hard dav's march. Moscow nad
already been abandoned, and the hith
erto victorious armies of France were
in full retreat, amid all the horrors of
a Russian Winter.
The ground was covered wkh a
deep snow, which yielded crisply be
neath the tread ; the men, in clearing
the space for the erection of the tent,
had piled it in form of a circular em
bankment, into which the outward
stakes were driven.
. The night was intensely cold; not
a cloud obscured the heavens; the
stars, shining with that peculiar bril
liancy which distinguishes them in a
northern latitude, lit up the distant
plain, that, trenched by the drifting
winds into billowy forms, appeared
like a sea of foam, relieved only with
the red glare from the watch-fires of
the neighboring picket.
Wrapped in fur-cloaks and pelisses,
the spoil of the abandoned city, they
were seated on the ground, enjoying
their repast with that true zest which
only hunger gives.
The party consisted of Count Lau
riston, Major Guillet, Captain Adolphe
Lesseau, Lieutenant Florent, who,
with several inferior officers, had at
tended their chief in his unsuccessful
.interview with the Russian general,
Prince Kutusoff, when, commissioned
by Bonaparte, he *^ent to propose an
armistice, and treat for peace.
The supercilious manner in which
he had been received by the prinoe,
who refused either to grant a cessa
tion of hostilities or forward -Napo
leon's letter to the Emperor, chafed
the fiery spirit of the count, and, du
ring their long day's march, he had'
scarcely exchanged a word with any
of his officers. Even a sullen dispo
sition must yield?at last to the conta
gion of good humor and a desire to
A Frenchman's is not the most ob
stinate in the world, and Lauriston,
roused by the cheerful gayety of the
party, and their peals of laughter at
each fresh sally, gradually forgot his
spleen, and joined in the conversation.
" I wonder," exclaimed Adolphe,
gayly, " what the fair dames ol Paris
would say could they behold us in
our Winter bivouac-the snow our
carpet, and the bare canvas our only
shelter from the keen frost? Many
a fair bosom would commiserate our
" Ay," interrupted Florent, " and
envy us our furs. These sables would
distract the heads of half our belles
the Empress herself cannot boast of
such. Should I ever see our dear
CDuutry again, I will preserve mine
in lavender till I become a peer of
France, and then line my robes with
them." . .
" Take care tint it does not first
become your winding-sheet. That;
soldier will have something to tell of
who again sets foot upon his native
soil. We are encompassed with -din
gers-not only tue enemy. . but their
accursed climate to contend with.
Even I." continued the major, " vet

Fiorent still looked gloomy.
" What, man !" he continued-"re
sent a jest?-so alight a one-and
from me, too . You can't be serious.
Come, give me your hand, friend
A smile of peculiar meaning passed
between the young soldiers, and each
instantly grasped the other's hand.
"Ho-nph! Brt>:be?,' said Guillet,
after a pause ; " this comes of Free
masonry. I have known many a
pretty quar el spoiled in a similar
manner. There was Hariet, of our
regiment ; he, I remember, had a dis

Florent, anticipating some reflections j

tonishment, it commenced its deadl

The last star was fading in th

would be impatient to learn the sue

waking his companions, who, wrap

slumbers, '. we have played the slug

All was soon bustle and confusioi
in the little encampment. The horse
were.led from the rude tent, wher
j they had passed the night with tin
I men, and waited, ready caparisoned
while the poles of their late resting
place were being struck.
Just as they were preparing t<

The old soldier formed hi.-: little

by the tent, which was protected on
three sides by th-.' embankment pl

* *' About thirty." replied Adolphe,
coolly; "we shall have warm work
of it-they are here."
"Steady, men," cried the major;
" level high."
As he spok$, the party, headed by
their commander, reached the ground.
The Cossacks were advancing with
their usual impetuosity, when the first
six were thrown into some slight con
fusion by th9 giving way of the em
bankment, which yielded beneath
their weight, and plunged them up
to their norses' bellies in snow.
The Frenchmen s?w thetr advan
tage, and fired. Two fell ; the oth
ers, by a desperate exertion of strength
backed till they gained firm ground.
The attacking party, now divided
into two separate Dodies, commenced
wheeling round their enemy, each in
a different direction.
The effect of this manouvre was to
distract their attention, for, at the
same instant, one party poured in a
line through the entrance of their lit
tle citadel, while the other, leaping
the embankment in the rear, attacked
them at a disadvantage.
The struggle was now hand-to
hand ; men encountered each other
with all the bitterness of national Late
and personal feud.
" Our only chance," said the ma
jor to Adolphe, who was fighting sear
him, "is to gain the open ground;
we are cramped here."
And spurring his horse, he dashed
past the enemy ic gallant style, fol-i

One, whose horse was of finer me

The arm of his pursuer fell powe

officer and two men, who, by a d
tour, had gained upon his path, dasi

Adolphe, his sword broken, his pat
