CHARGE OF A HIGHLAND REGIMENT.
Brigadier Geo. Havelock, in bis despatch
68 from India, thus describe* the gallant
charge of a Highland regiment under heavy
fire:—“Opportunity had arrived for which I
had.long anxiously waited, of developing
the prowess of the 18th Highlander*. Three
guns of the enemy were strongly posted bo
hiud a lofty hamlet, well entrenched. 1 di
rected this regiment to advance, and never
have I witnessed conduct more admirable.—
They were led by Colonel Hamilton, and fob
lowed him with surpassing steadiness and
galantry under a heavy firs. As they ap
proached the village they cheered aud
charged with the bayonet, the pips* sounding
the pibroch. Need I add that the enemy tied,
the village was taken, and the guns were
captured." _
GETTING OVEiTa DIFFICULTY.
A class which grsduatsd not over a thou
sand years ago, embraoed among its mem
bers one Tom Elliot, an incorrigible wag,
who was not noted for any particular mark
ed attention to his studies. Mathematics
was a particular object of Tom's disregard,
and this oaused him ao occasional jeu \l es
prit with the dry professor of conio*. On one
occasion the professor, during the recitation,
asked Tom to explain the horizontal parallel
of the sun.
Tom replied, “I don't know how.”
“But,” said the professor, “suppose you
were appointed by the government to ascer
tain it, what would you do?"
“I'd resign," gravely responded Tom,
amid the convulsive laughter of the class,
aud even the professor actually perpetrated
a grin. ___
