K. WBITMOKE, Pnbliiher and Proprietor. - DB. LIEBEK AT WATERLOO. A Tlvld leronl sjsrrntlvA of the Urrat Battle 'rem Dr. Lleber's . lrfiitors. In 1827 I arrived in New York on the game day, aud put mj foot an land in the lame hour (Jute 20) that in 1815 a ball prostrated me. Some time ago yon asked me to give you a iketuh ol my adventures in that Waterloo battle. I de termined to comply with your wiib, and learched among my paperi for a copy, which my mother gave me once, of my own latter, tla (jrat (hat I waa able to write after that eventful duy of battle. I did not succeed in finding it, bat here is the sketch. :! " Boys, cldar your rifles," said my old and venerabte falser, entering my room, where I was studying Lodor'i A"Rtomi cal Tables, " be ia loose again Napo leon he has returned Irom Klba." ' ' My heart beat high; it was glorious naws for a boy of sixteen years really in bis sixteenth year who hfd often heard with silent envy the account of the eitmpaigns of 1H13-U from tho lips of hi two brothers, who bad marched in 1813, in common with moat young men of good family, as volunteer rillemen, and returned as wounded officers. One of these, cured nf his wound, rejoined bis reci'nent; another of my brothers and myself lollowed the call of govern ment to enter the army as volunteers, though our age would have exempted us from nil obligation. Which regiment should we choose? Of course, ue which was garrisoned near the enemy's frontiar, so that we should bo sure not to have a eacc!;!e cam paign in a distant reserve. There was a regiment umong the troops near the frontier of franca which enjoyed a par ticularly high end iust reputation; it name was "Colberg, ' bestowed iu honor of its valiant defence of the fortress of Colberg in the year 180C the only Prus sian fortilif d place in that wretched time liii-h did not surrender to the French. It wn composed of braa ud steady Pomeranians, a short, broad-shouldered, healthy race; In more than twenty "ranged" engagements during the cam paign Wl they shown themselves worthy of their houorablo name. My brother and mysc-ll selected thjs regiment. When the day of the enlistment of the volun teers arrived, we went to my father and said: "Well, then, we are going; is it with yetir consent?'' " Go to your mother," he replied. We went to her; oar hearts were full, she had suffered so rruch during the first campaign. With a ba.'f-phoked voice I sain: iiioiner. we are going to be enrolled shall we? She fell into our arms, that noble woman, and sobbed aloud. "Go!' wa. cl her bleeding heart allowed hor to C'terj and, had she been the mother of twenty sons, ha wnnld have gent them all. W had to wait from tan to one o'clock before we could get a chance to nave our names taken down, the throng waa so great. Jn tbe beginning ot ilay w were marched from Berlin to our regiment. My father accompanied us to the place of .rendezvous. When ... , , YHH BUULE CiLttn , ' , ; us to the line we looked for him to take the last leave; be hud stolcu himself away. A great many people accompa nied ns out of the city; the beautiful Brandenburg gate was soon bebiud as; we began to sing. I looked but forward, happy that it was now my lot to bear arms in defense of my country. On the 16th we crossed the Rhine; on the 25th of May we passed in review before Priuce Blucber in Namur. On the 2th we marched to a village called Voistin and incorporated with our regiment On the 3d of June we had our first parade with the regiment, and tho colonel declared that we had the beariug of old soldiers; he was satisfied with ns. We longed to hit nut to the test. I saw on that day, for the first time, the woman who was a sergeant in our regiment, and distin guished herself bo much that she coold boast of three orders on her gown, when, after the peace, she was married in Ber lin to Another sergeant In second regiment of our brigade was another girl serving as a soldier, but she was very different from our sergeant. Her sex was discovered by mere accident; she had marched instead of her brother, that he might support their aged parents. We marched to Longuoville, seven leagues from Broseels. On the 9th we recaived lead to cast T)ur Dans; me noe being of different calibres, for each man had equipped himself.. It is one of the most peculiar situation a man of rellect ing mind can be in, when be casts his bullets for battle near at hand. In the renins-1 wa Iviaa with two comrades. one of whom was a Jew, in a hay-loft; the crazy roof allowed as to se the bril liant stars. We spoke of home. " My father," said one, " told tit he was sure be would never see me again, though he never tried lo kern me I feel a il 1 should fall." A ball entered his forehead in tb first battle and killed him on the spot. The second, the Jew, said, "No body has foretold my death, yet 1 believe I shall remain on the field. lie fell at my aido, in Uie battle of Ufcgy, before he had fired a shot the ball cutting his throat. "And I," said I, "shall be brushed, but I think I shall return borne, though with a scratched skin.". Thus strangely every prophecy of that night was fulli'tled. , On tho morning of lbs I5th the gene ralo was beaten. HOSTILITIES HAD SOt " the 14th. We marched th whole day and the whole night; in the morn- I . r i . i v. .la ne-we arrived not lar irom m uir field of LiirnT. and halted. Before ns wa a rising grouad 00 which 'n" BLIC MEMPHIS, numerable troops ascending from the plain, with flying colors and music play ing. It was a tight a soldier likes to look at. I cannot ear. with Napoleon, that the earth seemed proud to carry so many brave men; but we wore proud to beloug to toes brave aud calm masses. Orders for charging were given; the pressure of the coming battle was felt more ana more. Soma soldiers who carried cards in their knapsacks threw them away, believing that they bring bad luck. 1 bad never played cards and carried none; but this poor instnuce of timid superstition disgusted mo so that 1 purposely picked up a pack and put it in my knapsack. Our whole company consisted of very young men, nearly all lads, who were impatient tor battle, and asking a thousand qoostions, in their ex citement, of tbe old, well-seasoned ser geant major, who bad been given to ns Irom tbe regiment, liis imperturbable calmness, which neither betrayed fear nor excited courage, but took tbe battle like a muster, amused us mucb. Wo now marched team no the sloping plain, ant) by one o'clock in the alter- noon arrived on the battleground, for tune held ns first on aharragsine reserve the French field-pieces played hard upon us, shells fell around Us and took several men out of our column. We were com manded to he down, aud I piqued my- all' on making no motion when balls or shells were flying over us. behind us stood some cavalry. One of their offi cers had been a near neighbor to us in Berlin; be rode up to me and asked ma to write noma suouia ns iau; no wouia do as much for me should I be shot down. He soon after fell. We longed most heartily to be led into the lire, when our ollicer, a well tr(ed soldier, spoke these few words: "My friends, it is easier to fight thau to suud inactive exposed to fire. You are tried first by the severest test; show, then, that you can be as calm as tbo oldest soldiers. My honor depends upon your conduct. Look at me, and I promise you shall not have a bad example." 4' iugth, about two o'clock, our column was ordered to drive tho enemy out of the left Bide of the village. Our Colonel rO(i( up to us and tajd, "Eillemen, you are young, I am afraid too ardent; calmness makes the soldier; hold yourselves in ordor." Then he turned around. "March!" and TUB DULL, BALF-MUFFLED DRUM from within the deep column was beard beatinj delicious rausip, When tbe bugle gave the signal to halt we were in front of the village of Ligny, The sig nal was tben given lor tbe riflemen to march out to right and left of the column and to attack. Our ardor now led us entirely beyond proper limits; tlio sec tion to which I belonged ran madly, without firing, toward the enemy, who retreated.. My " hindman " fell; I rushed on, hearing well but not heeding the ur gent cals of our old sergeant. , The village was intersected with thick hedges, from behind which the grenadiors bred npon ns; bat we drove them from one to the other. I, forgetting altogether to fire, and what I ought to have done, tore the red plume from one of tbe grenadier bear-caps, and swinging it over my head, called triumphantly to my comrades. At lenirth we arrived at a road eroding tbe village lengthwise, and the sergeant- mnjor bad now succeeded in bis attempt to bring us somewhat back to our reason. There was a house, around the corner of which he suspected that a number ol French lay. " Ba cautions," said ho to ma, until the others are un: but 1 stepped around where a grenadier stood about fifteen paces from me; he aimed at me. My antagonist's ball grazed my hair on the right side; I shot and. he fell. I found I shot through his face he was dying. This was my first shot fired in battle. Of our whole company, which, on en tering the engagement, numbered about IA0 strong, at night only twenty or thirty combatants remained- The old soldiers of our regiment treated us ever after this battle with signal regard, while before it they had looked npon us as beardless boys. We marched all night It rained tho whole of the 17th, hut we trjarphod a greater part of that night also. Ilain fell in torrents, and the roads were vory bad. Karly in the morning of the 18th we found part of our regiment, from which wo had been separated-' 0ur ea cre exhuusted, but old Blutohae allowod us uo rest. As we passed the Marshal, wrapped up in a cloak and leaning against a mound, our soldiers began to hurrah. " Be quiet, my lads," said be, "bold your tongues; time enough after theXyiptory is gained." We entered tho battle of Waterloo with Blucher in the afterpoon; you knpw the history of that memorable day. ' The great body of the Prussian and English armies marched toward Paris; but half our army corps to which I bo longed, received orders to pursue Van damerc, who had thrown himsolf. into Namur. We marched the whole of the 1'Jth; the heat was excessive, and our exhaustion and thirst to great that two men of our regiment becums deranged in consequence. At four in the after noon we went to bivouac; we startod early again, and now my strengh for sook me, I could not keep up with the troops, and began to lag behind. Sud denly, at about noon, I heard THE FIRST 01N8. Tho battle of Namur bad begun. " When I arrived where my regiment stood, or as I should rather say, tbe little band rep resenting it, I dropped down; but fortu nately one of my comrade had some eggs, one of which gave me great strength. Our Colonel came up to us saying: "Kiflemen, you have twice fought like the oldest soldiers I have no more to say. This woods is to be cleared; be steady buglemao, the signal f and off wo went with a great hurrah I driving the French before u down a hill toward Namur, which lay in our front. When I saw our men rushing too fast down the hill, I was afraid that some enemies might be hid under the precipice to re ceive them. Holding myself with my left band by a tree, I looked over the precipice aud saw about seven French men. "They will bit ," I thought, and, turning aronnd to call to our sol diers, I suddenly experienced a sensa tion as if my whole body were compress ed in my bead, and this, like a ball, were quivering in the air. I could feel the existence of nothing else; it was a most painful sensation. After some time I was able to open my eyes, or to see again witb them. I found myiwlf on the ground; over mo stood a soldier firing at the enemy. I strained every nerve to ask, though in broken accents, whether and if so where I was woundrdl " You are shot through the neck." I begged him to shoot sue; the idea of dying miserably, half of hunger, half of my wound, alono in the wood, overpowered me. lie of course refused, spoke a word of comfort that perhaps I might yet be saved, and soon after him self received a shot through both knees, in consequence of which ho died in the hospital; while I am writing an account of bis sufferings here in America. My thirst was beyond description; it was a feverish burning. I thought I should die, and prayed for forviveness of my sins as I forgave all. I recollect I prayed for Napoleon, and begged the Dispenser of all blessing to shower His bounty npon all my beloved ones, and if it could be. to grant me a speedy end of my sufferings. I received a see on d ball, which, entering my cbett, gave LARGEST CITY TENNESSEE: TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 5, 1872. ma mora local pain than tho first; I thought Ood had grantod my fervent prayer. 1 perceived, at 1 supposed, that toe ball had pierced my lungs, and tried to breath bard to hasten my death. A week afterward, while I lay still with mv two wounds in a horse at Liege, one of my brother was in the hospital at Brus sels, and another at Aix-la-Chapellew were just distributed at tho points qf a trinugiu. . i A PABIS NOTORIETY. vvoexlrrrnl Career of a Bra.iliriil "" rtaaaal ailrl Fr-m a Hovel lo a I'ftlnre-t'rout fux-rly to a Frlaeely fortane, The Paris correspondent of thu New York World writes the hi nr.nrv nf one nf , me iemaio notorieties of Pans, tbe Countess do Pavia Aranja, one of the wealthiest women in that city. The daughter of a Russian serf, eariv in lifa she was married to a journeyman tailor, wuo, uncg oi ner, despite her groat per sonal beauty and wit. sold her to a Rus sian nobleman, who spent a fortnne on ner education and in traveling wuh her through Western EuroDo. His ninner gone, he announced to her that be must return to St. Petersburg, but she refused to go, preferring a life in Paris. Her next victim was a celebrated artist of that day, whom she acoomnanisd in England, where he save a aeries of eon. oerts, the prooeeds of which were pock eted by the handsome adventurees. is'ct pleased at this, the musician left her in London. She tben same to Pari, meet ing en route a young Portugese noble uiou, vuuni ue ravia Aranja, who be. came so fascinated with her that h insisted upon not only trans ferring to her the bnlk nf hi. great wealth, but also on bestowing his noble title. With him she lived until she obtained tbe remainder of his money, when he was cast aside. Hitherto she had ' been an anonymous character; henceforward she had a title and n ancient name, both of which were law fully hers. She had not. however, at tained her groal object of life, which was to grow enormously wealthy. Bo she set about giving her husband a successor. She was in a luckv vein, for the tenant. of her heart was a man with a large in come as a music teacher, concert aiver, and manufacturer of pianos M. Henri ucrz. ne was otherwise rich, too; ho naa amassed s iuo.ouu, or may be Cm.- 000. M. Her went crmy with Inlatuai tion for her, and continued demented until his capital had gone and he had fallen so fur behind all his engagements that there was serious peril of his credit ors seizing his piano manufactory. Find ing the bottom of M. Herz' purse, the quitted him. ' Ho went to the United States to recoup his losses. At tha una of forty-three she still retained great personal attraction, and was not lorg in drawing into her toils a Qe?man Count, man of immense wealth, who lavished great sums of money upou Iter. She also turned his social relations to great account. It was an oraof monster aneculations: she was a bold operator, and had aoonmolated bo- lore tbe late war at least t2.00U.OUO. and has mails a great deal since. She owns the historical Chateau de Pontchartrnin. and has her possessions well stocked with game, (iuarda, regularly relieved, patrol tha estate night and day. A ve hicle comes ia every morning bringing her vegetables and Iruit lroiu her gar den, orchard, fordine-house and vinery; for she has all of these in the highest state ot exoeilence. the best English gardeners tend them, and her stablemen are of tho tame, nation. Dutchmen manngo her dairy, and Dutch women her laundry. Her cooks are French, her confectioners are from Vienna, Her plate-room contains SGO.OOQ worth of silver. Her iron coin oontains $500, 800 worth Of jewels, and $100,OC0 in hank notes, wbiob she always keeps by her to meet an emergency beyond the usual course of human events. One of her diamonds is worth $00,000. Her house on the Avenue des Champs Elysecs is said to be the costliest bouse in Paris. The stairs , are th purest Carrnra marble, with brouze banisters expressly designed for her, and whose molds were broken after they were mado. The mantels and doors of the drawing room are malachite. The paint ers who decorated her drawing-room, dining room and library, are said to have received above $20,000 for each room. There is no house in Paris like it. When war was declared she quitted Paris and took np her abode in London, while her last favorite betook himself to the Ger man headquarters, where be made him self so useful that be was finally made Governor of Alsace and Lorraine. - He' must keep open house and a housekeeper was neoessary. Madame do Pavia threatened and stormed, and finally car ried her point; and before setting out to assume bis responsible position, Lount Hcnckel von Donnersmurck, for such was hi name, married her. After the close of the war they returned to Paris, whore they were at once surrounded by former friends, although " society " is closed against the Countess. ' The above facts are said to have been brought to light by the suicide of her second husband, Count de Pavia Aranja, who lived long enough to make a state ment to a priest and notary. Gardening around Paris ia dangerous. on account of nnexploded bombs in the earth. PREMIUMS.
