the discovery of gold in California in
1849, a squad of Battery I of the regu

Point fort, near San Francisco. One
load the charge was 50 pounds of pow

go off, and the officer in command or
dered it to. be pulled out of the cannon.
The charge was withdrawn, and as
it dropped to the ground it was seen
that one corner of the woolen bag was
on fire. In an instant tho powder would
have caught and the seven men with
their officer would have been killed.

mud and with his bare hands plastered
the singed edges with damp earth.

the hero been a British soldier it would
.have brought him a Victoria cross to
wear on his breast.
