to arrest the Tartar colinns. Beside
since Irkutsk could not possibly eseal

importance to put *h town in a pos

Those works were begun on the da
on which Tomsk fell into the hands <
the Tartars. At the tamne time as th:

the emir of Bokhara and the allit
khans were directing the movement i

that the lieutenant of those barbarou
chiefs was Ivan Ogareff, a Russian ofi

From the first, as has been seen, tb
inhabitants of the province of Irkuts

and villages. Those who did not see
refuge in the capital were compelled 1
retire beyond Lake Baikal, to whel
the invasion would not likely extend il

of the greatest courage and patriotism.
When he was not occupied with thi

e companions in exile in common action.
The exiles, up to that time scattered

draw the attention of the grand duke.
In several sorties they had paid with
