There arc many oilier striking- accounts and anec
dotes of the ■.itmtions of the soldiery, hotli with relation
to their comforts, the supply of necessaries, discipline,

we can only refer.
V. e are strongly tempted to extract our soldier’s nar
rative of suc!i details as occurred within his own notice
of the nflair at Puentes d’l lonorc, bat arc compelled to
jsiss on to the siege of Had a jus.
“The fid parallel xvas now opened within 300 yards o(
the town, in which two butte ties rmmncnced firing on the
COtli. During this time, the-weather was so had, amt the
rains so heavy, that we were wot king in the trenches, up
to the knees in mu I, and the river swelled to surh a height
that the pontoon bridge, over which we crossed the (touli
ana, was rariitd away. On the Will another sortie was j
made by the enemy on the light; but they were repulsed by !
0 moral Hamilton*-; divisitn. On the Oist twenty-seven
pieces of cammn were opened in the second parallel, on the
walls of the town, and the filing was continued with
great effect until the 4th, when niiotlici battery of six guns
was opened; practicable breaches weie effected oil the f.th,
«ltd «*? were turned mit that night to storm the town, but
the enmity having made formidable preparations for the de
fence, the attack was delbi ted until next night, during which
time ail the guns in the second parallel were brought to
bear upon the Incachrs. This delay was productive oi l
very serious feelings throughout the Succeeding day, as tve j
were v nrued tit the time to he ready to storm the town the 1
next night.
‘•v minus were the effects produced on various individuals. j
There was .••••unusual talking of relations, a recalling to
mind of scenes forgotten; a flow of.kindly feeling which sof
tened flown the rough soldier into something sadder, but
•non? pleasing. Many letter? were written during that day '
to absent filends, in a iiitne affectionate st)le. than usual; j
and many injunctions given and taken, about writing in the 1
event of tlte fall of cither party, to their relations. f
“The neater the time drew for the intended attack, the i
more > ...-h individual seemod to-h.it.k within himself, yet
‘• iii in riling r.f tear nr doubt of our success was expiesscd, [
« \ei . teelnig di.playtd was natural and manly; at length ■
nigiit cant ', and the appointed hour for turning out'. It
wasda.l; and gloomy, not a single star showed its hear!; the
air wa-■ sfiil, not a sound was tw tie heard, but the noise
01 .d crici.ct , ami the croaking of trogs; every word
of command was given in a whisper, and the strictest si
lence enjoined, which I believe, was unnecessary, forfew felt
no'.ii.t’i to speak. At last the older was given to ad •
v{lucr, tin.I IVtill paij,:taima licarb we commoner.! our
'!mv and silent, n tread weight hanging „n eve
ry m':..d; li.i i we been brought huriiedly into action it would j
li ive been m.'i’ereuf, but it is- inconsistent with the itflliire of :
ie.an not to loci as I have described, in such a situation._ !
The previous warning; the dark and silent night; the known j
strength of the place; and the imminent danger of the at- I
tack, all conspired to produce it.—Vet litis feeling was not!
the want of courage, for 1 never witnessed any thins: like the
< a!u» intrepidity displayed in the advance, niter we came,
svithio range of lire enemy’s cannon, Heiug apprized ol
our intentions. they threw ont fire-balls in every direction,
;:iul from total daikncss, tin y changed the approaches to
the gari'iMiii, into a state light as day; by this means they
were enabled to -ee the directions of our columns-, and they i
opened a tire < ! roun 1 and grape shot on us, which raked !
through then-, killing and wounding whole sections. IVe I
still advanced, silent as before, unless the groaning <>fonr|
wanned c m trades,’ until we reached a sort of moat about]
fifty feet wide, formed by the inundation of the rirev; here
we had to pass, rank entire, the passage being only capable
01 admitting one at a time. On ibis place the cuemv had
brought their guns to bear, and’they kepi up such a lire of
grape and musketry cr. it, that it tv.its a miracle any of us
escaped. When we reached the other side we formed
again, and advanced up the glacis, forcing our way, through
the paliiaadcs, and got down into the ditch. The ladders by
which we bad to escalade the castle were not yet brought up,
o ml the men were huddled on one another in such a manner
that tve « mil not move: we were now ordered to fix our bay
onets. Wh-n.we first entered tiie trench we considered our
s -vies comparatively safe, thinkhig.we were out of range of
their shot, hot tve were soon convinced of our mistake, for
they opened several gfinsfrom angels which commanded the
trench, and they poured grape shot upon ns from each side,
every shot of which took elTert, and every volley of which
was succeeded by the dying groans of those who fell; our
situation at this time ivas truly appalling. The attack had
commenced at the breaches towards our left, and the can
non mi l musketry which played upon our troops from every
quarter i f die town attacked, kept up a continual roll of
thunder, ami their incessant flashes one quivering sheet of
lightning; to add to the awfulness of the scene, a mine was
sprung at the breach, wi^ii carried up in its dreadful blaze,
the mangled limbs mi ! bodies of many of our comrades.
When the ladders were placed, racli eager to mount, crowd
ed them in such a way that many of them broke, and the
P"'Or li Hows who had nearly reached the top, were precipi
tated a height of thirty or fmty fret, and impaled on the
bayonets of tin ir comrades below; other ladders were
pushed aside by the enemy on tin: wall*, and fell with «
erach on those in the ditch; while more who got to the top
without accident were si; it or» reaching the parapet, and
tumbling hendlmg, brought down Those beneath them. This
continued fm some time until at length a few having made
their land i g good on tire ramparts, at the expense of their
lives, enabled a great number to follow. When about a,
company bad tuns collected together, we formed and j
charged round the rampart--, bayoneting the French artil
lery .it their guns; in the direction that the party i was with,
they had. di.i-.vn out a howitzer loaded to the very muzzle]
pointed it towards u«, and a gunner had a match ready to
fho, when lie was brought down by one of our party: in this
(li.ec.Hou we charged until w<-reached the sally-ports com
in-mi. aliog with the town. In a short time the whole divi
sion were *' t.ildisli.-I in posse--ion of the castle; but the
cmite-t at the bleaches wa "-till severe.

to hit some be’.is mi front of a convent.
"The etiects of the liquor now began to show itself, am! 1
! some of the scenes which ensued arc too dreadful and i!is- i
) “listing to relate; where two or three thousand tinned men,
| many of them mad drunk, otlieis depraved and impriuci- |
pled, wetc freed Irom ail restraint, running up and down the j
town, the atrocities which took place may lie readily ima- i
gined;—but in justice to the army, I must say they were not |
general, and in most eases perpetrated by cold blooded vil
lains who were backward enough in flic attack. Man} '
' risked their lives in defending helpless females, and although J
it was rather a dangerous place for an ofti<>r to appear, I
j saw many of them running ns much risk to pi event 'mini
um oily, us they did the preceding night in storming the
' town. 1 very soon sickened of the noise, folly, and wick
edness around me, nml made out of the town towards the
: breach. When 1 arrived at where the attack had hecn
| made by the light and 4<li divisions, what a contrast to the
scene 1 had just left'.hrre all was comparatively silent, un
less here and there a groan from the poor fellows who lay
wounded, and who were unable to move. As l looked
round, several voices assailed my car begging fora drink of
*vater; 1 went, and having #!led • large pitcher wfyth 1
found, relieved their wants as far as I eoutd.”
Our soldier, the next morning, visits the scene <*l attack
j on the night previous:—
J “When I observed tho defence that had been here made,
I could not wonder at our troops not succeeding in the as
sault. The ascent of the breach near the top was covered
with thick planks of wood firmly connected together, sta
ked down, and stuck full of sword and bayonet blades,
which were firmly fastened into the wood with the points
up; round the branch a deep trench whs cut iutii,' ramparts,
which was plated full of muskets with the bayonets fixed,
standing up perpendicularly, and firmly fixed in the earth
up to the locks. Exclusive of this, they had shell and hard
grenades ready* loaded, piled on the ramparts, which they j
lighted and threw down among the a&suilunts. Round this '
place death appeared in every form, the whole ascent uas I
completely covered with the killed, and for many yards ,
around the approach to the wa!K, every variety of cxpics- j
mom mi then countenance, trum calm placidity to the great
est agony. The sight was awful:—anxious to see the place
w here we had so severe a struggle the preceding night, 1
bent my steps to the ditch where we haj placed the luddurs
I to escalade the castle. The sight here was enough to har
row up the soul, and which no description of mine could
convey an idea of. Ucueath one of the ladders, among
others lay a corporal of the 4.1 th regiment, who, when woun
ded, had fallen forward on his knees and hands, and the
foot of the ladder had lieeo, in the confusion, placed on his
1 hack. Whether the wound would have hern moi t.il, I do
' not know, but the weight of the men ascending the ladder
! had facilitated his death, for the blood was forced out of his
i ears, mouth and nose.
| “Returning to the camp. I had passed the narrow path
across the moat, where many lay dead, half in the water.
I had scarcely reached the opposite side, when I perceived
• woman with n child at her breast, and leading another
by the hand, huriying about with a distracted air, from one
dead body to another, eagerly examining each. I saw her
conic to one whose appearance seemed to strike her (he
was n grenadier of the 8-i.l regiment.) she hesitated some
moments, as it afraid to realize the suspicion which crossed
her mind. At length seemingly determined to ascettoin the
extent of her misery, releasing the child from her hand, she
raised the dead soldier (who had fallen on his face) aud
looking on his pa lid f.atmw, sire gave r wild scream, and
the lifeless body fell from her arms. Sinking on her knees
she cast her eyes to heavftn, while she sltained her infant to
her bosom with a convulsive grasp; the blocd had fled her 1
faro, nor did n muscle of it move, she seemed inanimate !
anJ all her faculties were absorbed in grief.'*
Schooner D>_rn!itr.—The Bosttui Palladium, has col
lected the following additional particulars of the murder
of Capt. Galloway and the mate of the above svllooner.
‘•The names of the crew who have at rived here, (Bos
ton.) me John Campbell and Janies Brown. The former ,
states that the capt. and mate were thrown over about |
10 o’clock, in the day, weather good, and light winds—1
i Biown was, at that time, asleep below, aft, where &U the |
i c‘vw Iive,l to accommodate the slaves. Campbell had
been, hut a few minutes hefoic, conversing with the capt.
' respecting the proptiety of permitting the*negroes, except
in small parties, to rtime on dec k, (there being only 2 or Z
pair of hand cul '; on board;) but capt. G. observed that he ■
had frequently been engaged in 'transporting slaves from j
one State to another, and never had any difficulty. Mr..
C. then left him, and went aloft to do something when he* '
immediately saw the slaves (by the names of Thomas Ilar
‘■®d and Manuel Wilson,) throw the capt. overboard.
As the capt. dropped astern, the negro men all ran aft,'
which noise awoke the mate, who was asleep in the cabin_
lie ran on deck, with only 7iis pantaloons and shirt on, and 1
| while looking over the side, at the capt. ho was thrown
over—Campbell was still aloft, and cannot tell which of
j the slaves took hold of the mate, except otic, a mulatto fel
i low, by the name of Hill.
j Brown says he did not get’oa deck until both capt. and
i mate were in the water—he supposed they had fallen over,
I and in the act of attempting to clear a way the boat, he was
soizrd and ordered to desist. The man at the helm was
. Joiin Sutton,*who, ever since the vessel sailed, had appa
! remly been insane—he Marie no attempt to relieve those
i overboard^ no;- did he alter the vessel’s course. Whether
j *»p llH<l agreed to join the blacks or not is unknown. A few
| nights afterwards, he attempted the life of Campbell, as he
j lay ,r* his birth, but his intention was defeated by the latter,
who saw hint approach with a hatchet.
After the death of the officers the negroes took possession
ol tho cabin, and as the vessel was well stocked with small
stores, refreshments, &c. they soon devoured every thin-_
they also broke open some of the casks of spirits in the hold,
ami obtained each a suit of new clothes, from some boxes !
which were in the same place.
J hn blacks had avoided all vessels they iQu\; but tin* *
Constitution, being in want of refreshments for In r crew,
and supposing, correctly, that the Decatur must be just out'
of port, took pains to speak her—having quarter boats,
Campbell fold the negrec3she was a maji-af-war, and that
it would he useless to attempt avoiding her; on which they
permitted her to approach.
The ship’s boat came on board for supplies, just at sunset,
when the crew were directed by the blacks to state that the :
officers bad been lost overboard, tec. which they dir), and !
that they were in want of water—not having any suspicion !
"as to the true character of the vessel, they were supplied!
with three casks.—It was not until the next morning that
Campbell hail an opportunity to tell the Capt. of the ship !
what had takea place, which he did on being taken on I
board Ins vessel—the crew of the. ship were immediately 1
armed with muskets and pistols, and sent to the sciir. and i
ordered the negroes to surrender, which they did, (there i
being only four old muskets, three of them unfit fur use, j
and two pistols on hoard the srhr,) and were all brought on ’
hoard tier ship. The intention of Capt. Chase bring to !
b.ing them and tire srhr. into port;but having no handcuffs !
to confine the men, most of whom were young and power
ful, he was fearful of tin attempt to regain their liberty, ■
and therefore returned all but two on board.
Whan the Decatur was fallen in with, 2d inst. she was 1
steering to the S. te !'. awd unlearn that the Constitution !
w as then in lat. 2 J long, fet— after leaving the ship thesebr.'
directed, by capt. Chase, to steer to the N. te W. and '
she continued that course for about 21 hours, while the ship j
was in sight. 1 i
*";|" above named Sutton, ansi a young man, by the name
of .to.in-, (-nit5 iohr.ve been burn in Boston) remained
, by the srhr. not u isfcing to leave her. It i3 not supposed,
by Campbell or Brown, that the latter had any connexion

rroni a late London pa pry.
lujaul.nc .'J rithmelu tan—The lions of the town are
about to receive an accession to their number in the
person of Master George .Noakes, a child only six •
years and a halt old, hut who is said to be possessed of
a precocity oi talent for calcuiation, which Ij-js scarce! \
evnr been paralleled and nevet surpassed. T i>o pub
lic exhibition is not to commence until lo-nui row. but
i last night a perliminarv examination took place at tho
! Gnthiollall. Piccadilly, in picscocc of a large jiatlv.
! A variety uf difficult questions were propounded to him,
to all of which he gave correct nnswers_\vith a promp
• titude and apparent facility that fully justified the ex
! pcclatioii excited of his astonishing natural ability.—
j We subjoin a few of the questions and answers as the
1 best evidence of the truth of what we have asserted.
Supposing a person were to lake Id pinches oi snuli
during every quarter of ati hour, how many would he
have taken in 13 years, reckoning 005 dars to each
year?—Answer, <>,113-2,800.
A person h 2G years and a half old, how many inin
, ulex lias he lived?—Answer. 15,305,200.
I Again; sujq.osing him to have had an ifi.-ome of dd.
j per minute, how much will he hare received?—Answer,
i Jb‘258,4‘20.
j In Got) hogsheads of G3 gallons each, how many pints
f ami liow much wo«U the}- come to at 2J- per pin;.'—
Answer, 3-27.GG0 pints—JL'G.nji.
What is the square root of aTG?—Answer, -2*1,
1 What is the square of 57G?—Answer. 331, 77ii.
There are two numbers whoso united amount is 2*10,
and their difference 52, what are thc>?—This puz/.ied
him for some time; hut he refused giving rip the a‘
tempt, and at last arrswereJ, 0 l and 1 Id, which is cor
■ hue answering these auu numerous other ques*
l tioQ?, the child’s attention never appeared to he ah
. stracted from surrounding objects, or inclavaut obscr
I vations, nor, as far as opinion could he formed did .iiese
i iu the Ipast impede or annoy him.
j '1 he child is stated to bn the son of a labourer eni
j ployed in the docks, to be totally uneducated* anti to be
. actually ignorant of the value which the characters in
; common use for expressing numerals represent. 11 is
j father states, that the first indication which he observed
of his son’s talent was about u year and a half hack,
j when he told him he could count a thousand, aud short,
j ly afterwards that he could count a million. No a*.
: tempt appears at this or at any other time to Imve been i
j made to aid the child in the developctncnt of his powers
j of mind; but he appears, like the great Dos Carles, i
j without assistance to have piocceJi.il (n discover, and
1 demonstrate for himself, .so much of (lie f.t t piinciplcs ;
ot mathematics as form the basis of arithmetic, and
I thence by induction-to have formed rules bv which'
I must of its operations could he performed. It is true'
| these rules are not so facile or simple as tho>c in genc
i ral use, nor is it surprising they should not he, when it
| is rccollecled they are the production of a mere child, .
who could not be expected, however wonderful its na- :
tural powers, to at once have hit upon the method wlfch '
experience has proved to lie the be&L Indeed, the ve
ry imperfectness of the rules is a strong corroborative
proof of the originality of the boy’s genius, and of his
not being indebted to instruction* for the j.ioficiency i
which he has attained.
The following is the method which the child stated
himself to have adopted in multiplying *70 hv 1 2J—70
j times 100 is 7,000, 70 times 20 is i, 100, 70 limes .1 i<
| ‘.mo—ii.eto.
I In multiplying 16 by dt>, he adopted the following
i method—52 times -10 is 20,70—0 times 0 is 30—2,110.
On being asked how he calculated the question as i
to the pinches, he said, ‘ I did not do it in the way it i
was put to me. I began by multiplying id times 15, ,t >
that came 105, and multiplied again by four made 700. ’
I called this 000, and multiplied it by the number ot
hours in a year, which made 7,008,000. Then I tool- j
tiplied 20 by the hours in.a year, which made 175,200, :
and taking this from 7,008,000, il gave the correct an
! swer.
| When asked why he added 20 to the 780, he .said -‘be*
1 cause it made it even.”
