BATTLE OF WATERLOO.
After tho hundred days preparation, Napoleon
advanced to the Low Countries, to
meet the Allies, again banded together for
his overthrow. Ho attacked lJluchor at
Ligny, and defeated him, and so hard pressed
was this old veteran that he lie was overthrown,
and lay entangled under his horse
in the darkness, wliilo tho French cavalry
passed twice over his body without observing
him ; ho then oxtrieatod himself and
joining his troops, retreated to "Wavres.?
iNoy had been loai successful at Quatre ]?ras
in his attack on Wellington, but lie had
retired in pood order, and effected a junction
with Napoleon, and the two together
moved down on Waterloo, where the Duke
had taken up his position?entirely separated
from tho Prussian army.
To understand the field of battle, imagine
two slightly semi-circular rid go.i or rather
slopes, a half-mile apart, curving gently
forward, somewhat in the form of a parenthesis,
and you have tho positions of the
two armies. On tho summit of one of these
slopes was drawn up the French army, and
on the other, that of the Kntrlish and allies.
The night of the 17th of June was dark
nud stormy?the rain fell in torrents, and
tho two arinios lay down in the tall rye,
drenched with rain, to wait the morning
that was to deoido the fato of Europe and
of Napoleon. From the ball room at Brussels
many English officers had been summoned
in haste to the field, and shivering
and cold were compollcd to paws the night
in mud and ruin, in their elegant attire.?
Tho artillery had cut up the ground so that
the mud was ankle-deep, while the tall rye
lay crushed and matted beneath the feet of
tho soldiers. The morning of tho 18th
opened with a drizzling rain, and the two
armies, benumbed with cold, and soaking
wet, rose from their damp beds to the contest.
IOighty thousand French soldiers
wcro seen moving in close, massive columns
on tho crcst of the height, ns they
took up their several positions for the day.
After all was completed, Bonaparte rode
along the lines in the highest spirits, confident
of success, and exclaiming, "now to I

nillli; tliu MHMll,
" Vive I Kmpeveur I" that rolled after him
bhook the field on which they s<tood, aud
fell with ominous tones on the allied army.
Two huudred and sixty-two cannon lined
the ridge like a wall of death, ready to open
their fire on the enemy. At eleven o'clock
tho signal of attack was given, and theeol- |
uruns moved in beautiful order down the
slope. Wellington's lines occupied two
miles in extent, with tho right resting on
the Chateau frougomont, which from the
defences it furnished was equal to a redoubt.
Tho centre was protected by a farm-house,
La Maye Saintc, while the left strctched out

parte led a column of ?ix thousand men
down on ITougOmont, who in tho face of a
most destructive fire pushed up to the very
walls of tho chateau, and thrust their bayonets
through the door. But the Coldstream
Guards held the court-yard with invincible
obstinacy, and he was compelled at length
to retire, after leaving 1-iOO men in a little
orchard beside the walls, where it does not
Hocin so many men could be laid In a
nhort time the battle became general along
the whole line, and heroic deeds were performed
on every rod of the contested field.

down on the stoady English squares,
that had alrendy boon wasted by the heavy
igrtillery, a) J strove with almost superhuman
energy to break them. Driven tu desperation
by their repeatedly foiled attempts,
thov at length stopped t heir horses and
coolly walked them round and round the
squares, and whenever a man fell, dashed
in, in vain valor. Whole ranks went down
like smitten grass before the headlong charges
of cavalry nnd infantry. In the centre
the coutcat at length became awful, for
thero the crisis of the battlo was iixed.?
"Wellington stood under a trco while the
boughs wore crashing with the cannon shot
overhead, nnd nearly his whole guard sinit
ten down by his side, anxiously watching '
the progress of the fight. 11 is brave squares,
torn into fragments by bombs and rioohet
shot, still refused to yield one foot of ground. |
Napoleon rodo through his ranks, cheering J
on the exhausted columns of infantry?-and i
cnvalry, that rent the henwith the
shout of " Viv.r. f Empwrwr !" and dashed
with unpar.dleltad reoklc?sness on the bayonets
of tho English,
The hero of VVftgmm, and Borodino, and
AnsterUtz, nnd Marengo, and Jena, enraged
at the stubborn obstinacy o( tho JJritish,
rode over the field, and was still suroof viet/irv.

Bt ? v
sweat from his anxious forehead and cxolaimod,
"Oh, that Bluoher or night would
come!" Thus from eleven till four did
tho battle rage with sanguinary ferocity,
and still around tho centre it grew more awful
every moment. The mangled cavalry
staggered up to tho exhausted British
squares, which, though diminished and
bleeding in every part, seemed rooted to
tho ground they stood upon. The horoic
Pioton had fallen at tho head of his brigade,
while his sword was Hashing over his head.
Ponsonby had gone down on the hard-fought
field, and terror and slaughter were on every
side?still tho charge of tho French cavalry
on the centre was terrific. Disregarding
tho oloso and murderous firo of the Brit
isli batteries, they rodo steadily forward till
they came to the bayonet's point, and then
finuly urged their horse'* heads against the
barrier, but in vain?pierced through and
broken, they were rolled back over the field,
but rallied again and again to the charge,
and prodigies of valor were wrought, and
heroes fell at every discharge. Tho ront
and trodden field ran blood, yet through tho
deep mud tho determined foomen pressed
on, while out of the smoke of every volley
arose from tho French lines the shout of
OHAftmi OF TUB GUARD.
At length a dark object was seen to
emerge from the distant wood, and soon an
army of 30,000 men deployed into the field,
and began to march straight for the scene
of conflict. Blucher and his Prussians had
come, bnt no Grouchy, who had been left
to hold them in check, followed after. Jn
a moment .Napoleon saw that he could not
sustain the attack of so many fresh troops,
if once allowed to form a junction with the
allied forces, and so he determined to stake
his fate on one hold cant, and endeavor to
pierce the allied centre with a grand charge
of the Old Gu ild?and thus throwing himodf
between the two armies, fight them
separately. For this purpose the Imperial
(I,.nr.! wnu nnllnrl l.o,l ....
inactive during the whole day, find divided
into two immense columns, which were to
meet at the British centre. That under Ilcille
no sooner entered the lire than it disappeared
like mist. The other was placed under
Ney, the " bravest of the brave," and the
order to advance given. Napoleon accompanied
them part of the way down the slope,
and halting for a moment in a hollow, addressed
them in his fiery, impetuous nianir~

thorn, and that lie relied on their valor.?
" Vivr. 'I JBmpcreur !" answered him with
a shout that was hea?d all over the field of
lie thou left them to Ncy, who ordered
the charge. Bonaparte h;us been blamed
for not heading this charge himself; but
ho know he could not carry that guard so
far, nor hold thoin so lung before tho artillery,
as Ney. The moral power tho latter
carried with him, from tho reputation ho
had gained of being the " bravest of th<",
brave," was worth a whole division. Whenever
a column saw liim at their head, they
| knew that it was to be victory or aiinihilu
tion. With tlic exception of Macdonald, 1
do not know a general in the two armies
who could hold his soldiers so long in the
very face of destruction as he.
'i'he whole Continental struggle exhibited
no subliinor spectacle than tins last effort
of Napoleon to save his sinking empire.
Europe had been put upon the plains of
Waterloo to be battled for. The greatest
military energy audskill the world possessed
had been tasked to the utmost during the
day. Thrones were tottering on the ensanguined
field, and the shadows of fugitive
kings flitted through the smoke of battle.
Bonaparte's star trembled in the zenith?
now blazing out in its ancient snloudor. now
suddenly paleingbefore his anxious eye.?
At length, when the Prussians appeared on
the field, ho resolved to stake humps on
one bold throw, +(? committed himself
and France to Ncy, and saw his empire rest
on a single charge. The intense anxiety
with which he watched the advance of that
column, and the terrible suspense he suAcred
when the smoke of battle wrapped it
from sight, and the utter despair of his
great heart when the curtain lifted over a
fugitive army, and the despairing shriek
rung on every side, "la garde rrculc." "fa
garde reculemake us for tho moment
forget all tho carnage in sympathy with his
Ney felt the pressure of the immense responsibility
on his brave heart, and resolved
not to prove unworthy of tho groat trust
committed to his caro. Nothing could be
more imposing than the movement of that
grand column to the assault. That ginrd
had never yet recoiled before a human foe,
and the allied forces behold with awe its
firm and terrible advance to the final charge.
For a moment the batteries stopped playing,
and the firing ceased along the British
linos, as without the beating of a drum, or
the blast of a bugle, to choor their steady
courage, tney moved in dead silence over
i the plain. The next moment the artillery
opened, and the head of that gallant column
seemed to sink into tho earth. Rank after
rank went, down, yet thoy neither 8topped
nor faltered. Dissolving squadrons, and
whole battalions disappearing one after another
in the destructive fire, affected not
their steady courago. The ranks closed up
| as before, and each treading over his fallen
i comrade, pressed firmly on. The horse
| which Noy rode fell under him, and hp. hud
scarcely mounted another beforo it also
sunk to the earth. Again and again did
that unflinching man feci his steed sink
j down, till fine, h id been idiot under him.?
Then, witli his uniform riddled with bullet*,
mid his face singed and blackened with
powder, he marched on fi>ot with drawn sabre
at the bend of his men. In vain did
the artillery hurl its storm of (ire and lead
into that living mass. Up to the very muzzles
they pressed, and driving the artillerymen
from their own pieces, pnshed on
through the English lines. Hut at. that

it. They reeled, shook, H^ggored
back, then turned and fled. Noy was
borne back in the refluonttide, and hurried
ovor the field. Hut for the crowd of fugitives
that forced him on, he would have
stood alone, and fallen on his footsteps. As
it was, disdaining to fly, though the whole
army was flying, he formed his men into
two immense squares, aud endeavored to
stem the tcrriflo current, aud would have
done so had it not been for the thirty thousand
fresh Prussians that pressed on his
exhausted ranks. For a long time these
squares stood and lot tho artillery plow
through thorn. But tho J'uto of Napoleon
was writ, ami though Noy doubtless did
whut no othor man in t lie army could have
done, the dccrcc could not ho reversed. Tho
star that had blazed so brightly over the
world, wcut down i'i blood, aud the "bravest
of tho brave" had fought his last battic.
It was worthy of his great natuo, aud
the charge of the Old Guard at Watorloo,
with him at thoir head, will bo pointed to
by remotest generations with a shudder.
Wo now cotno to tho expiration of his
treason by a public oxcc'iMon. Tho allies

some victims to appease their nuger. Many
wero selected, but bettor counsel prevailed,
and they wero saved. Ney was a prominent
example; ho had routed their armies
too frequently and too nearly wrested their
crowns from them at Waterloo, to bo forgivon.
It was intended at first to try him
j by martail law, but the Marshals of Franco
refused to sit in judgment op so bravo, generous,
and horoic a warrior, by a royal
ordinance, tho Chamber of Peers was then
directed to try him. Scorning to take ad
vantage of any technicalities of law, ho was
J speedily found guilty and condemned to
J death, l>y a majority of a hundred and fiftytwo.
Seventeen only were found to vote
in his favor. That lie was guilty of (reason
in the ict'or of tlio charge, is evident, but
not to that extent which demanded his
death. No man had done more for Fiance
than ho, or loved her honor and glory with
a higher a flection ; and his ignominious
death is a lasting disgraco to the French
nation. Justice was tho excuse not the
ground of his condemnation. To havo carried
out tho principle on which his sen

public massacre. Ney and Labcdoyere were
the only victims offered up to appease an
unjust hatred. Besides, Ney's person was
' sacred under a solemn treaty that Welling
ton had himself made. One of tho articles
of that treaty, expressly declared that "no
person should be molested for his political
conduct or opinions during the hundred
day*." On such conditions was Paris surrendered,
and there never was a more 11agrant
violation of national honor than tho
trial of Ney. Tho whole affair, from boginning
to end, was a deliberato murder,
committed from feelings of revenge alone.
Napoleon never did so base an act in his
life?and on Wellington's forehead is a spot
that shall crow darker with tiniA .mil /-husa

1 To should hnvo interfered to have saved so
gallant an enemy at tho hazard ot' his lite,
but he let his honor go down before the
clamor of vindictive enemies, and become
a murderer in the sight of *he world. Ney
was publicly shot as a traitor.
His lust momenta did not disgrace bis life.
He was called from his bed and a tranquil
sleep to hear his sentence read. As tho
preamble went on enumerating his many
titles he broko in?" why cannot you dimply
call mo Michael Ney?now a French
soldier and soon a heap of dust?" Tho last
interview with his wife and children shook
his 6lern heart more than all the battles he

"Comrade, you arc right, send for tho curate

drawn up as oxeeutioners, with tho
