Nicholas Wnmpler, a Rnssian prflntle- man, formerly in the car,9 army and diplo matic service, hut now resident nf Bilti more, was interviewel by a Chipo Times renorter, and anion r the informing things he said was the following description of the famous "charg-e of the Lijrht Bricade:" It whs a sublime autumn momintr, with the sun breaking throntrb low mists, when our armv hpan to move to the attack. I was n the artillery service, commandinj; then, ns younker or sub-Iieyt tenant, two puns of a six piece battery. We were moving before day- icht, and, penerrfttins a defile in a line of hills, we dehou'-lied into the plain of Balak- lava nnder a clorious "sunburst. We conld I see the enemy's pickets and here and ihera , mounted vidett retreatinc before us, and as the fop lifred we beheld the srmke of the bivouacs that marked the hostile posi tion alonp the heights. Thpn speedily came the other smoke as their ordnance opo.ied, the majestic preUnie of ttie battle. Our artiHerv, clearing the psss, parted ripht and left to form with its sti) nieces a hupe crescent with extremities in advance. My battery found position upon the extreme tip of the left spnr. Between us the armv poured horse and foot with a solidity and brilliancy that seemetl the nrtribtitsof invincibility. Everv- thinp moved with speed and precision, we opened in concert alnnp the line a storm of shell under w'.nch our hupe troos of cavalry quickly formed and rode forwanl. The as sault was well bepun, and it wns a prpeous sipht to that, preat projectile of horse and human flb. with arms and equipment that flashed with the terror' of dea1- hearinp on ward. The Turks in the outer trenches fled almost without fire and the horsemen rode over their abandoned works as though or grand review. THE GREEV AD THE GREY. The advance had been pushed with blvd less success and was alKut to enter a thin strin of timber at the very foot of the ridjre when there appeared, breaking from this cover, two scattered troops of horse. I was attracted to the green jackets of the one and the white herpes of the other, and have since learned that I then saw for the first time the redoubtable Ennik:ll-,tiirs and Scots Grevs. How quickly they concentered and how well they struck our victory seizinp columns his tory tells. I saw them, as plfis in hand I tood on a battery natron, vanish wi, h a puff of smoke and a flash of cirelinp steel within our ranks. I Ifheld a tremendous surpe in our fortintions ai:d saw the whole mass rolled back and driven off by the che-'rinc Gaels like cattle before the herder. Great was our rape anil dismav. An hour of artillery prac tice succeeded, during which our command ers were casting about for other plans, wbrn we were attracted to a movement of cavalry among the enemy. An advance was teinp made by a red uniformed brigade number ing, I judged, between five and eix hundred men. We concluded that this was a division to cover some serious enterprise and di rected a close lookout to other quarters. The cavalry had disappeared m a depres sion in the ground. THAT AWFCL SLAUGHTER. I was studying the heights when I was sur prised to see the troops presently reappear over a swell and still directly advancing. Our emotions were of pure amazement. Were tho English, intoxicated by their suc cess of the morning, going to capture the HaHiin mntiT wtth a forage partyf Evt- diintlv no. for ontl",v'nL,n" - ered by a dtp In the plain. The cannonading ceased on both sides and there was that hush of a bated audience upon some moving scene. They were still out of sight, but we could hear the dull strokes of their hoofs upon the turf. Cp they came at last, and as they bove in viw, now within 5oann'str range, their bugles sounded the charge and they broke from a brisk trot into a galop. They were a galiant com pany, truly, and it was visible evenTJto me that there was good blood in the set f;tces and hoarts of oak under those scarlet jackets. The order to fire ran along the lines and 1 personally jerked the lock string of one of my pieces without sighting. Our whole ar tillery flamed and roared like a volcano. As my puns wero run back to a taut breeching and more crane was rammed down their smoking throats I leaped to a caisson to see the havoc It was awful A third of the bngade had fallen, some like stones, others pluncing and wnthit g with horrible wounds. The remainder bore on with gathering speed. 1 found tbem too close in upon my elevated position to depress my guns. A second volley struck them with the same frightful effect. KELXIXG HORSES ASD HEX. The course of the shot through then was marked by a melting of horses and men and spray of shredded flesh and clothing, while amid the hissing of the iron gale there was low, harsh sound that X can ascribe only to the rending of bones and tissue. They passed us like coursers at the finish. horses reaching with lightning strides and the men high in their stirrups cheeriug and brand ifibiug tbiir satyrs. They passed witlun snow ball range of me and some of my men discharged their pistols and small arms upon the red ranks. Into the buiow oi smote tnat roiiea trom tne heart of our position thev flew and there came a sudden check to the firing as though the cannon bad been throttled. The shock of direct conflict ensued, but in a few minutes tho broken remnant of the troops reappeared, forced back bv the hopelessness of the at tack. There was some firing upon the brave fellows as they retraced their corpse strewn path of giory, but my battery took no part in it We fe.t great admiration for the troops, but never understood, as no one e.se, 1 be lieve, the purpose of the maneuver. Murderers and Thieve Whp Sins "Nearer, My God, to Thee." Six hundred men in striped clothing lis tened to the sermon of the Rev. Mr. Barn will at the prison church in Jefferson ville yesterday morning, says The Louisville Times. Since breakfast the cells had been open, and the men sat about in the corridors amusing themselves by singing, telling stories and in divers ways. It was a curious, yet withal a sad sight. Among them were great, powerful fellows, with splendid muscles and intelligent faces men who, had they stuck to the paths of honesty, might have ranked hicb among their fellows in social aud political hfo. Then there were scores of luw browed con victs, with tiie peculiar hang d"g look that always characterises a sneak thief, who did not seem ar ail out of their proper sphere. There were large men and small men, fat men and lean men and ugly men; in fact, everv tvie of mankind could have bien se lected from among them. There were many present whom the reorter knew in happier times. Towering high above all the rest was the figure of a man w ho now owns one of the finest farms in Clark county and who once stool amug the foremost in his neighbor hood. It was Jack Robinson, who is serving a life sentence for killing his neighbor, Sam uel Hay, in a quarrel about the boundary lines of their farms. He is over 70 years of age, his hair and bear! are Ions and pray, and it is apparent that his sentence will be a short one. liOoklng about him the reporter saw THE HI FFKRKR-H FRIES D.
