paper says that in the scarcity of provisions
in Paris a similar step might bo uilvantagu

me by surprise. 1 was not prepared for it,

Tho London Times gives tho following
particulars of the battle of Citato, from n
private letter
On Friday, tho (ith of January, the Turk,
ish troops, under the orders of Ishmail Pacini
and Ahmed Pacha, marched to attack thu
Rusiuns, who had fortified themselves in the
village of Cilato, which is about 5 hours
march from Kalefat. The force of Ishmail
Pacha was composed of threo regiments of
regular cavalry and one regiment of P,ahi
lloziiiiks, with six guns. Ahmed Pacha was
stationed at souio distance from the village,
with some reserve troops, consisting of live
b ttulions, and six guns.
The Russian force in the villago consisted
of threo battalions of infantry, commanded
by Colonel lionnegarde, three squadrons of
hussars and two squadrons of Cossacks, with
six guns.
Tho Turkish troops were, as will be seen,
superior in number; but the position i,f the
Russians, who were distributed in nil thu
houses of the village, which is of great ex
tent, and which is surrounded by a doublu
ditch, rendered the attack extremely perilous,
ns the enemy, well sheltered, were enabled to
direct n murderous lire upon the Turks, w ith
out the latter being able to reply to it.
In spito of this evident disadvantage, Ish
mail Pasha gave orders for the attack, and
threw himself into the village under a show
er of halls lired from all the windows. At
lirst the Turks received very serious injury;
hut although this circumstance somewhat
disorganized their attack, their impetuosity
was by no means cheeked. The greater por
lion of tho soldiers, who bad never before
been exposed to musketry, nevertheless dis
played indomitable courage.
After a desperate struggle they attacked
the houses, and fought hand to hand with
sword and bayonet. 'The massacre was fright
ful. The Russians in vain begged for quar
ter. In the fever of the light thu Turks lis
tened to nothing, and slaughtered, without
pity, all who fell under their hands. The
Mussulmans of the Crimen, incorporated with
tho Russian army, in vain appealed to their
character of Mussulmans. No quarter was
given to them. Gutters of blood ran down
the streets from this wholesale human slaugh
ter. To add to the horrors of the seem-, it
may be stated that a number of pigs which
hail been let loose were seen eating the dead
All who could escape tho slaughter took
refuge in a redoubt at the head of the village,
and thence recommenced n murderous lire
upon the Turks, who returned it vigorously,
but not without receiving considerable injury
from the Russian guns.
At last the enemy, incapable ofnny further
struggle, decided on abandoning the en
tiviiclitiiun Is. number ui' I. ou-uiin I root is
had already evacuated the place, w hen a col- i
onel of Turkish cavalry conceived the unl'or- '
lunate idea of endeavoring to oppose their I
The Russians, finding themselves sur
rounded, and having no outlet for escape,
and no resourcu but the terrible energy de
rived from despair, no other alternative Initio
conquer or die, recommenced the light with
desperation, and in a vigorous siirtiu they
succeeded in capturing two guns. It should
bu stated that the Turks, upon the first suc
cess in the entrenchments, committed the in
credible fault of not destroying the enemy's
While the battle was thus going on in the
villaL'e, twelve battalions of infantry of the
RiiKsian army and a squadron of the cavalry,
with sixteen pieces of cannon, were brought
to the assistance of the besieged, and at
tempted to place thu Turks between two
tires. Information of this was given to
Ahmed Pacha, who, by a skillful maieeuvre,
directed his soldiers to the point, ill order to
prevent the junction with the besieged troops.
For this movement he made use of three of
his reserved battalions.
Tho advantage of the position was now
on thu side of the Turks, w ho were on ground
which sloped towards the Russians; but the
latter were in three times greater number
than the Turks. In spile of this inequality,
however, the Russians were entirely beaten,
and lied in the greatest disorder. They were
completely routed, a fact constituting n feat
of arms on tho part of tho Turks w hich does
treat honor to them, and establishes another
important truth that the Russians cannot
cope with Turkish troops in equal numbers
to themselves in open licid, and that they can
only hope lor any success w hen they have a
much iiioio powerful force than their enemy.
Their losses in these two simultaneous af
fairs amount to nearly I.OOU men, among
whom are included 50 superior olliccrs. The
Turks had about 300 killed and 3!llj wound
ed, who were seilt to the hospitals at Wid.
den, and of whom it is hoped tho greater
part may be saved.
According to the opinion of some Euro
pean olliccrs now at W'iddcn, this all'.iir is a
most glorious one for tho Turks, and, if not
productive of any material result, will at least
prove of great moral advantage to them.
On the not day the Russians attempted
to reoccupy the redoubt from which they had
been driven in the nighl, but the appearance
of some Turkish . battalions discouraged
them from the attempt, and they beat a re
treat. At the time of the attack upon tho village,
the Turkish soldiers, particularly the llashi
liazouks. ommittcd the fault of stopping to
nillairo beforo being entirely assured of
victory, and by this means, in despoiling
tho dead, obtained some trillingarliclcs, much
to the nreiudice of the mineral interest. It
is to be roirrettcd that it has not been tiossi
hie to derive all tho nd van Inge from this nf
fair of which it is susceptible, at least so far
ns regards material benefit: but, as regards
the moral effect, there is nothing to desire.
Ishmail Pacha fought liken lion, and moro
likoa soldier than a general. He had two
horses killed under him. He was grazed with
two balls ono on the shoulder, nud another
on the wrist. A third ball struck the scab
bard of his sword.
Tho Turks took from tho field of battle,
besides a number of horses, a great many
muskets, sabres schakos, epaulettes, nnd de
corations, and also many wounded. The lat-

placed by their beds of pain as a solace to
their sullcrings.
Justico has liecn done to the bravery of
the Russian olliccrs who courageously did
their duty, but were badly seconded by the
soldiers, whom it was often necessary to prick
with the point of the bayonet in order to
prevent tbein from running away. Some of
tho Wiillachian miliiia were incorporated a
mong tho Russian troops; but the former
force were continually subjected to their jeers.
A Wallncbian captain refused to march a
gainst tho Turks, and he consumatcd his re
fusal by blowing out bis brains. This fact
mav be relied on.
Tho Wallachian soldiers aro continually
deserting to the Turks, whose position is de
cidedly becoming advantageous. It is be
lieved "that they will shortly undertake a new
expedition. Ik-sidea this, although 1 do not
suite the fact as certain, it is said that Oiuer
Pacha is about to proceed to Widdin. At
all events, tho Turks will be received in U al
lochia as liberators. The Turkish soldier
enjoys a reputation for honesty and good con
duet which is well founded.
All the provisions which aro necessary are
paid for in read money, and no burden is
thrown on the inhabitants. So much cannot
be said for the Russians, who are, indeed,
charged with all sorts of odioos sets. About
two or three weeks ago, some Cossacks, at a
village near Plcwan. cut oft the heads of
thice Wadachiaas and violated fifteen women.
-We copy the following excellent article
from '-Fried ley's Treatise on Business."
In the education of a business man, it niu-t
never bu forgotten that bis future will bu a
life of action, and not of study. Great care
must, therefore, be taken that the health be
not impaired in .1 strife for useless honors,
that tho feelings he not suffered to grow over
the sensitive in recluse contemplation, no.
the mind lose its spring ami elasticity under
a loud of cumbersome and unpractical learn
ing. It has been said nt least one-fourth of
the students of colleges leave them with im
paired health; full one-half are too sensitive
to bear the rude jostling of tho world; and
perhaps, two-thirds of thu balance have some
defect that Would seriously mar tho happi
ness mid usefulness of life. It is wonderful
how many parents spend money which they
can ill spare, to unlit their sons' for nil I'll tine
usefulness; A collegiate education cannot
be recommended, and if attainable, is not de
sirable. A counting house is thu business
man's college; When tho youth has finished
his course of preparatory education, nt a
school or private seminary, under the charge
of an able instructor, vho teaches ns much
by conversation as by a prescribed course, ho
should go intoa countii!g-hoiise,whatevcr may
he his future occupation. It is there that he
will le.im order, method, obedience, and ac
quire a knowledge of life, and tho business
of life. It is there that he will learn the val
ue of time, and the value of money two
very important things to know. Whatever
of conceit he may have brought from the
village academy is soon rubbed out of him.
Ho learns to obey, to submit, and bo patient,
to endure reproof without anger, and to
bear contradiction with good humor. His is
ohji'.'cd to keep his wits about him, to decide
quickly, to have accurate eyes, and truthful
ears, and to learn that there are just sixty
minutes in an hour. A counting-house edu
cation will be uf advantage to every man
whatever his future occupation may lie. A
moral education need not he dwell upon.
This is especially n work of Self-cultivation.

cured some bad cases here, which every other

more good than all that had ever been done

and has free use of bis legs. It is good fur
