ATTACING TE. CAVALY.t
The camp monotony was broken at v

the advance of a Federal incursion from k<
Bruinsburg, on the Mississippi riv:r.
Thisforceof white and nigro ireeps, h:
composed of infantry, cavalry, and f41id1 o.
artillery, and amounting in all to abo-ut y
1,200 men, had been landed from trans- m
ports on the river, presumably for ' e
purpose of surpnLing and capturirg r
force at Shepherd's old fields. Tim y C
warning enabled General Adams to mn ':t m

DBIvnlG THE FEDEA~ 'MCK. a
The enemy had posted himself in ran
about Coleman's dwelling, barns and
outbuildings. Here we assaulted himre
and drove him out and back after a shert
resistance. The Federal force greatiy
outnumbered ours, but would assur-edly
have been captured had the white con
tingent been as easily demoralized as;
were the negro soldiers. Time after
time these men, composing the reair
gu!rl as the Federal commander drevwj
off ln, forces, were broken and huriedt
helter-skelter upon the main body, and
only the stubborn fighting of the white
troops enabled any portion of the comn
mand to escape. Darkness fell while wea
still pursued them, and the chase was'
rot given over until near midnight,I
when exhaustion compelled a halt. Da~y
break found the enemy on board his
transports, and the fleet steamed awvay
for Natchez. I have often thought tat
had the Federal force been skillfully'
commanded on this occasion General'
Adams would have found that this attack U
was a rash venture. Had his force been

eeThey had also the gdvantage

our approach. Our first rush,.however,
drove them from it, and their othecers
found it impossible fully to rally the
negro troops. They would stand when
we paused, but each succeeding onneth
speedily broke their ranks. Their lireu
was very high. Far above our heads the g
minie bullets sang an angry chorus, and o:
our loss was trifling. At intervals, when al
crossing an eminence, a man would falljll
in darkness. Andrew Battle, a ruggedn
Irishman, went back for a horse to carry c:
off the body of Ed Sueduskie, a mess- t.
mate. "Whom have you there?" he wa
aked' from a bank on the roadside. ii
"Poor Ed Sueduskie, as dead as h--!" b~
he answered. "That's a lie, Battle!" n
replied his questioner, who was none il
other than Sueduskie himself. Down ft
went the unknown dead upon the e
groun 3, and Battle, witha an oath stronga
ly suggestive of isgust, resumed his
place among the pursuers. A youngt
cavalryman, intent un glory, went,
contrary to orders, mounted into the I
action. Soon he was seen on foot rumh-t
ing to the rear. "Hello, Jones, where
now?" "My horse was shot from under I
me and I am going back for another."
Agin he tlies to thae rea and agai ri -
ports his horse killed. Five separate!i
times that day and night his horse was
"shot through and through." Next asy

Te Cott.u Moveueit.
The New York Financial Chronicle, in
its review of the movement of the cotton
crop for the week ending on the night
of August 26, says that the total recelots
have reached 19,270 bales, against 9,649
bales last week, 7,270 bales the pre
vious week, and 1,409 bales three weeks
The exports for the week reach a total
of 22,315 bales, of which 17,585 were to
Great Britain, 2,548 to France, and 2,182
to the rest of the continent.
The total sales for forward delivery
for the week are 387,000 bales. For im
mediate delivery the total sales foot up
11,276 bales, including 5,475 for export,
5,801 for home consumption.
The imports into continental ports
for the week have been 1.3,000 bales.
There is an increase in the cotton in
sight of 83,324 bales as compared with
the same date of 1886, an increase of
58,576 bales as compared with the cor
responding date of 1885, and a decrease
of 313,958 bales as compared with 1884.
The old interior stocks have increased
during the week 284 bales, and were,
Friday night, 21,384 bales less than at
the same period last year. The rceeipts
at the same towns have been 727 bales
less than the same week last year.
Although the receipts at the outports
the past week were 19,270 bales, the
actual movement from plantations was
only 19,-510 bakLs, tue balance going to
iLeresse tlio stceik at the intLrior towns.
Last year the receipts from the plant
ons'for the same weck were 12,207
bales, and fcr 1,85 they were 12,621
The fifures from i;omubay show a de
creae coamuared with last year in the
week's receiuts of 2,uOIJ bales, and no
change in shipments, and the shipments
since January 1 show an increase of 46,
000 bales. Since January 1 the total ex
ports of cotton to Europe from all India
have been 1,332,000 bales.
The Chronicle says that cotton for fu
ture delivery at New York for the week
under review has been sluggish, and re
stricted almost wholly to the brokers
aud reguiar operators on the floor of the
Cottou Exchange, attracting very little
atttntion from outside parties. The
feature of the week was the sharp ad
vance on Saturday last, on a demand to
cover contracts, arising from the belief:
that "bear" influences had been exhaust
ed for the present. Monday and Tues
day saw the loss of part of this advance
under sales to realize. Foreign advices
and crop accounts had little effect, be
cause not very decided in their character,
but the increased receipts at the ports
were a depressing influence on Monday.
On Thursday notices were freely issued
for deliveries on August contracts, ssith
a very depressing effect upon options fo
this month and weakenmng the whole
market, to which the fall oi needed rain
in Texas and liberal receipts at Galves
ton in some degree contributed. Friday
there was a further decline and a very
unsettled feeling. Cotton on the spot
has met with a good demand for export
and home consumption, and quotations
were advanced on Saturday, Tuesday and
\vednesday--1-16e. each day. Friday
prices receded 1-16c., middling upiands
closing at 9 13-16c.
The Chronicle's weather reports indi
cate that beneficial rains have fallen inj
portions of Texas during the week, but
that at some points the drouth continues.
The correspondent at Columbia, Texas,
reports that in consequence of showery
weather, caterpillars have become nu

A ILOOD-CIuDLXG- TALE.
One of the most celebrated cases o
this kind was that of Geneiel Cervantes
which occurred, 1 bt-lieve, in 1874. H<
was a proniine-nt politieh.n, in the prim(
of life.~belng to a fimily of grea
wealth and inrliece, and the miscreant
who captured him aell knew that hii
people would move Heaven and earti
for his release. Well, days and weeki
went by, and though the country wa:
scoured for the missing man no trace o
him was discovered, or was likely to b<
so long as a penny could be gained b3
his retention. His family spent thou
sauds of dollars in the vain search, and
in repeatedly depositing large sums oj
money for his ransom, as indicated b3
mysterious p-lacairds, until they wer(
completely impoverished; and then,
moved by the tears of his distracted
young wife and the prayers of his aged
mother, the government offered a con
siderable amount for bis restoration
Bat stillno Cervantes appeared. At lasi
by the merest accident he was discover
ea-in the heart of the populous city
and within a stone's throw of his own
dwelling-under the floor of a deserted
house, lying flat upon his back in a
place barely wide enough to hold him,
gauged, bound hand and foot, with
several well-sharpened daggers thruet
within a hair's breadth of his body, so
that if h. should have stirred they would
have pierced him. Having remained so
long in this terrible condition he was
barly alive when found, and it was only
after weeks of careful nursing, during
which time he lay speechless and his
life hung by a thread, that he was able
to tell his advetures; and meantime, of
course, the miscre.nts had ample oppor
tunity to escape.
It seems that late one evening he was
standiug in his own door, when sudden
ly a zerape was thrown over his head by
some unknown persons and drawn so
tightly as to prevent any outcry; then
he was placed in a carriage and driven
rapidly a very long distance, as he sup
posed. Doubtless the rapid drive, they
having returned to nearly the same point
w-hence they started, was intended for a
"blind," and he never believed himself
so near home. The faces of his captors
he never saw, for they were closely
masked, and they visited him only at
night by the dim light oF lanterns. Hav
ing gagged and bound him, they first
talked of taking down a portion of the
wail and bricking him him up, leaving a
loose place where a brick or two could
be removed when it was necessary to
feed him; but, fortunately for him, they
decided upon the tloor as less trouble
some to thiemselves. Tearing up a plank
and placing him under it, he was found
to be too corpulent, despite all their
crowding, to allow the board to fit in the
place again, so a little earth was dug out
to accommoda.te him with a living
sepulchre. A few small holes, bored
above his face, admitted sufficient air to
keep him in existence, and there he re
mained for weeks, helpless, voiceless,
antombed alive within sight and sound of
his home, while his friends were ran
sacking the world for him. Every night
his captors came, removed the plank and
haled him up, and with the point of a
dagger at his throat took out the gag
and gave him food, and then walked him
up and down the room awhile for exer
cise. B3yand by hegrew so weak as to
be incapable of outcry or resistance, and
then his keepers forced stimulants down
his throat, and dragged him about for
needed exercise, desiring to keep the
breath of life in him as long as money
might be forthcoming. Finally, be
lieving him about dead and that all re
sources of profit had been exhausted,
they added mental torture to his misery
by assuring him that his friends had re
f sed to pay anything for his ransom,
and crowdling' him under the plnk
agai, they left him to die at leisure. It
happened that very night that a heavy
storm came up, and a beggar entered
the deserted dwelling for shelter, by
chance seating himself upon the boarud
under which Cervantes lay. Hearing
faint moaning, apparently proceeding
from the lower regions, the fellow was
frightened nearly to death, believing
i it came from some ghost, and he
ran sfrizdghtway to the nearest priest.
Strangely e'ugh, in this lazy country,
where superstitlts fancies are of coin
mon occrrence, seareZ was instituted,
and what remained of poor Cervantes
was rescued-not an hour too soon.
