The Horrorsof Sedan.
in 1)r. W. HI. Russell's accounta
of the battle of Sedan, scnt to thee
London Times, occurs the fol.l
lowing fearful sketeh:
Thle greatest event of our time~
has occurred under the eyes ofj
those who saw the battle of Se-n
danU. I think thc British public~
!must have had enough of battle
tield horrors and hospital sceneCs.
There. will he plenty of letters de-2
scribing Kr-anken-tragers, buriall
par-' iew, woundedl men, heaps of
de-ad, the hideous reverse of thecd
medal on the other side of whieb~
are the bright emblazonmnents of
glory and victory. I will not~
dwvell on the topiC, but ask your~
readers to be content with thea
assuriance that no human eye everi
vested on such revolting objects
aswere p)resented by tihe battle~
fields around Sedan. Let thems
faney mfasses of colored rag's glued)
together with blood and brains,
and pinned into strange shapes
by fragments of bones. Let themt
-oniceive men's bodies w;ithout|
heads, legs with'out bodies, hieaps'
of human entrails attached to redt
and bla c cloth, and disenmbowvelledd
corse i uniform, bodies ly ing$
about in aill attitudes, with skulls)
sha:ttered. faces blown off, hips)
smashed, bones, flesh, arnd gay
clothing all pounded together as i
birayed in a mortar, extendingr for'
miilew, not veryv thick in any one~
place, but recurring perpetually for~
weatry hours, and then they an
not, with the most vivid iaia
ti.come up totesiknn
reality of that butchery. No~
ni.thtmare could be so frightful..
>everatl times I came on spots~
where there were two h2rses ly
ig decad together in harness,~
killed by the same fragment.-?
Several times I saw four, tive, and~
six men, fo.ur, five, and six horses,h
all killed by the exp)losion of one~
projectile, and i.: one place there~
lay no less than eight French sol.
diers who must have been struck
dIwn by the burstirrg of a shell
over a comnpany, for they lay all
round in a ciecle with their feet
nwatrds, each shattered in the)
lhond or chest by a piece of shell,
and no other dead being within a
hunidred yards of them. A en-I
riouts arid to me nnaceountable
ob2e:-)>menon wsas the blackness of
'ii)>. at the faces of the dead. De-~
*>mpositionf hadl not set in, for e
the~y were kill only the day be-f
!thre. Another circumstance which't
str:ick mne was the expressioni or
aronyV oua many facees. Death by>
the bayonet is agonizing, and~
those who (lie by steel. open-eyed
and open-mouthed, have an ex-a
presio of pai in their features,
1vt rotruding; tongue. A mnus
ket ball. which is at once vit.al,
does not seem to cause much pain.a
and the features arec composedj
and quiet, sometimes wvith aswveeti
s:nlie on the lips. But the pre-3
vailng expriession on this field of
the faces whieb- wer-e not mutdla-3
tedI was oneC of terror)! andt of agony M
unutterable. There must have
beeni a lhell of to-tur-e i-aging in,
that semuic-ircle in which the earth~
was tor-n assu nder from all sides &

bloodstained hills and valleys in
which the smoke of battle had

the instinet, prevailed that the

rose, I am told, cheers, such as
oniy can be given byatriumphant

in the air. What an additional

felt that they bad given their
blood in vain, while the Prussians

Crazy Celia. F
.A WILD WOMA:, OF THE WOOD
SDE CARRIES THE SKELETON OF'
HER BABE-A ROMANCE OF HU-*
Many years ago, in the Domin
ion of Canada, lived a family of)
well-to-do Fredch people, who im-S
migrated hither in the year 1858.
;A f.air young flower was the dark
eyed Celia, and her three sturdy,
brothers were jealous of the manM
,who might in future years seeure
the budding rose full blown, and
~break the chain of happy hearts~
around the social hearth. Time
,passed. The war and its rewards
had called the brothers from their'
home, the fathor, allured by the:
,rewards which smuggling pre-;'
seuted at the time, and which
was engaged in to such an extent
on the lake shores in the years
1861-4, had turned his honest fish-4
boat into a dark-sailed smuggling
craft. Celia, flattered by the com-%;
moners and recognized by the "se.
lect" on account of her grace and
beauty, all unconscious of the law-:.
less father and the fate of the three
warrior brothers, laughed on, all=
heedless of what was in store for
her-becoming vain, careless, and
fond of dress..
Vanity is always the thin ieo of
destruction, and in Celia's case it4
proved no exception. The spoiler
was on the watch; he recited to the**
daughter the story of her f'ather's'
erimes, her brothers' death in
Southern prisons. and unded withg
the fairest proposal of marriage.s-.
in her terrible despondency, caused
by these horrid relations, the girls
Celia accepted the proposal of her
destroyer, in the recklessness of.
her despair. Shortly after one of$
her brothers returned from the
war, alive and well as ever, and+
through his instrumentality thea
real character of the villain, wasi
discovered and made known to his
sister. Knowing the disgrace and
degradation into which she bad-}
fallen, her reason began graduallyn
to fail her, and in a short time sheN
disappeared. from the neighbor-4'
hood, going no one knew whither.
During the fall of 1865, some
two years after the disappearance?

hnnters from the township of's
White Rock discovered in a wild,n
untenanted forest the foot-prints.
of a human being, barefooted andr
lone. Their curiosity was at~
once aroused, and by the aid of4
dogs, after a chase of eighteen
hours, they succeeded in obtaining
a view of the object of their pur- I
suit. Nearer they approached,

ing the approach, turned full upon I
