Col. 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 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.
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

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.
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.

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.

yesterday morning, says The Louisville
Times. Since breakfast the cells had been

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

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

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
