MISCELLANEOUS READING.
HARRY OGILVIE AT DUNBAR.
In a brilliant war story, recently publish
ed in England," entitled “Harry Ogilvie, ur
the Black Dragoons," by James Grant, oc
curs the following thrilling sketch. The in
cident is related as haring occurred at the
i battle ot Dunbar, .Scotland, when the flower
of her chivalry, its horse, foot and officers,
were overthrown with terrible slaughter bv
the English troops, under Oliver Cromwell.
“Deprived of my sword, and with my arms
pinioned, they dragged, pushed and struck
me; twenty hands or more were upon me, and
I had scarcely time to think over my terrible
| situation, when I found myself thrust against
the wall of an old ruin, and then a lighted
lantern was tied to my neck. By its faint
glimmering, even at that terrible moment. I
could perceive one who, by his laced scarlet
coat, broad bat and white falling bands, i
conceived to be a man of rank; but his iaco
was dark, contracted and forbidding.
“‘Sergeant—answer me, I implore you/
said 1; ‘is that man an officer?’ ‘Yes, a
colonel—he bears the heathenish name of
Arthur Ilesilrig/ ‘Save me from this butch
ery,’ I exclaimed; ‘save me, Sir Arthur
Ilesilrig—I am a prisoner, of war!’ ‘Die,
; Scot, and be d-d/ replied he, turning
away;*'tis the bolt of the Lord that hath
, overtaken thee.’ Hezekiah Accepted—Zerub
babel Meek—Habakuk KilUin/ saith the
sergeant, ‘and thou, Corporal Twaddle-/
*1 tell thee, brother/ sniveled the other in
great wroth, ‘my name is Fight-the goed
: tight ot-.Faitb, so Twaddle me no more/ es
and verily—fall in!—we will dispatch him
by a platoon*/ and at a distance of forty
yards 1 could discern these four fanatics #
through the gloom, by their white falling
bands, as they drew up opposite to me, and
began to handle their arms, while Sergeant
I Melchisedecb drawled out the words ol com
mand according to the approved tashion ot
Cromwell's army.
| “ ‘Poise your muskets—cock your muskets
i —guard your pans—present—fire!" The
Our muzzles seemed to flash through tho
dark into uiy very eyes. ‘God receive me!’
| I sighed, as the four bullets crashed on the
! stone wall round mo, and fell amid lime and
I dust at my feet, while every pulse and fibre
i tingled within me, and my startling heart
stood still! ‘Verily, but the Amorite is shot
i ft .Ua am.aT ur.I.IJa.i] ulir. nrfl
JMWW1, LI )LV4 l«»V LI VTT V* Li ” •• .
looking on. ‘We shall soon prove that—
i cast about to charge!' resumed the sergeant
as coolly as if upon parade ; ‘handle your
charges—open them with your teeth—draw
I ramrods'-!
“I am assured that even had I escaped this
; second intended platoon, I must have fallen
to the earth from mere over-tension of the
! heart and brain; but before they could level
at me again, the stern voice of ona vested
| with authority, ‘Recover your arms—shame
upon ye, men—fall hack upon your peril,
| fall back ! Is it thus my orders are obeyed V
All shrunk off as this person approached, i I is
I presence and bearing were lofty and com
manding, but bis face was massive and
coarse; his nose was large, and his eyes were
piercing; he wore a plain black bat, with
broad brim, a steel cuirass, buff coat and
starched falling bands. By some intuitive
• knowledge I recognized the English Lieuten
ant General—Oliver Cromwell."
