HAVELOCK'S CAMPAIGN AGAINST REBELLIOUS NATIVES IN INDIA. Defeating Superior Numbers, Ho Opened the Road to Cawnpore to Kelieve aro pean Prisoners, but the Daring Res cuers Arrived Too Late. Copyright by American Press Association. N event that was marked by the most fiendish atrocities, and at the same time pro voked acts of the stiblimest daring, - was tho revolt of ii Vthe senovs in Brit- Irjtfisli India, in Ij The Bengal 1857. army nt the time corr- 000 Kuropcuns and 120,000 natives. Out of 107 native regiments, 78 re volted during the year and 27 were dis banded. The cause of the renolt the im mediate cause was the adoption of the Enfield rifle for Indian troops, which would involve in loading the bitinjr of the greased paper of the cartridge with the teeth. The grease of pigs being unclean to the Mus sulman and that of cows sacred to the Hindoo, the incident was seized upon by wily leaders to inspire a revolt, and that, under the circumstances the Ccry nature of the sepoys and the small number of loyal troops could but be attended with bloody massacre. The whole country was ready for the up rising. The all powerful Hindoo astrolo gers had for half a century predicted that the hated rule of the East India company would come to an end in 1857, and popular superstition, combined with private malice, ambition and greed, worked together to fan each trifling spark into a flame. Be ginning with March of that year revolts and massacres were of frequent occurrence. On June 4 several thousand sepoys re volted at Cawnpore, a military station on the Ganges across from the newly annexed kingdom of Oude. Throughout Oude there was widespread discontent, and Cawn pore was filled with refugees from British rule in that country. The native troops at Cawnpore consisted of three regiments of infantry, one of cavalry, and a company of artillery. The British troops were about 200, under Gen. Sir Hugh Wheeler. When the mutteringsof the storm reach ed him Gen. Wheeler fortified .1 regimental barrack and gathered around him the En glish residents and nlso the families of the Thirty-second English regiment, then serv ing at Lucknow. A perfidious rajah. Nana Sahib, attempted by friendly assurances to delay the preparations for defense, but finally threw aside the mask, and with an overpowering force of bandits and rene gades attacked the- barracks. An heroic defense followed. The position of Wheeler was completely surrounded. Water for the troops and citizens could be drawn only under cover of darkness. Cannon and rifles played on the defeuses from all nides, and a burning summer sun added to the uufTeriugs of the besieged. At one time the barrack of the wounded was fired by a shell, and a horde of sepoys rushed up to prevent the extinguish nient of the flames. They were repulsed with heavy loss, the defenders losing many mun. Finally a European prisoner of Nana Sahib brought to Gen. Wheeler a propo sition from the rajah to the effect that safe conduct, would b furnished to all .of JhB British who would lay down their arms. On the 27th Gen. Wheeler, finding his case hopeless, agreed to the te.-ms, and the gar rison with the civilians marched out au l were placed upou boats in the Ganges. At a signal the Indian crews deserted the vessels and masked bodies of sepoys opened upon them with small arms and artillery. Four men escaped from the boats, and the other survivors, including women and chil dren, were returned to Cawnpore as pris oners. A few days after the tragedy of tlte boat tho HP'Vi reached the military station at Allabubad, 125 miles distant, where was gathered the nearest relieving force of the district. Sir Henry Havelock. a general noted for hi Christian principles and high courage, had just arrived to lead an expe dition for the succor of the stations under siege by the sepoys. Havelock set out for Cawnpore with 1,000 Europeans and about 200 native cavalry. After marching nearly half the distance to Cawu pore the column overtook an advance party of 200 men, and with a total of 1,400 men Havelock found himself confronted by 8,500 rebels in a strong position at Futtepore. The enemy pushed the attack, and Havelock, though anxious to give his weary men some rest, decided to accept the challenge. In ten minutes the action was decided, the enemy retreating in disorder before the deadly Enfield rifles and the cannon. HAVELOlcp: PJIOWISO HIS PLAN. This action took place on the 13th of July, and on the HtU the column resumed the march. The hot summer aw of Indja poured Its relentless beat upon the inen, but they toiled on in tbs hope of rescuing tho innocent and helpless survivors if Wheeler's party. On the 15th an intrenched bridge on a stream called the Pandoo was carried after a harp engagement, and on the 10th, at noon, Havelock was again con fronted by Nana Sahib's entire force of 5,000 men at a station three miles from Cawnpore. Havelock's men had made twenty-three miles on their last march, but they were at onca placed in line for at tack. The sepoys had a strong position, one flank resting on the Ganges and the other in a walled village, the whoie front being well protected by mango groves. Tho line formed au arc and covered two roads leading into Cawnpore. Havelock made his dispositions promptly, and traced his plan in the sandy road with the point of his sword for the instruction of his subordinates iu case of disaster to himself. At half-past 2 the advance was sounded, and the small body of native cav alry dashed upon the sepoy center, draw tag their attention and Are. The main body of English was formed in live lines, the third being a battery of artillery, and the whole was pushed out rapidly on a flank march against the rebel left. It was a bold, hazardous movement, butvwhat was left for 1.400 assailants against 5,000 well posted foemen except sharp tactics? The flank march was admirably masked at first by the mango groves, and the feint by thecav alry in the center threw Nana Sahib off his guard until Havelock was upou his guns. Havelock's second line was composed of a detachment of the famous Sevent y-eighth Highlanders, and when Hie sepoy position was well uncovered this command was ordered to charge upon an intrenched battery of three guns. The .)oy bands were playing English airs as a taunt to their former comrades, and at the moment of this charge were sending out an old camp favorite, "Cheer, Boys, Cheer!" With a ringing cheer, indeed, the kilted heroes sprang forward, holding their fire and relying upon tho bayonet, the shrill sounds of the pipe finally drowning out the rebel music, and inspiring the men with their own Scotch martial airs. They faced a terrible fire from musket and can non, but with trailed arms pressed on shoulder to Bhoulder, illustrating again 3 n mm round of bullets wasted might have ruined alL Havelock was with them. Once the whole line dropped to the ground to escape a heavy volley, and then tlie general called out, "Rise up! Advance!" The call was answered, and the Seventy-eighth went into the battery without a halt, preceded by a single volley of fJa hated greased En field bullets, fired r"ien the marksmen could see the must pities of the swarthy sepoys. Havelock c tjj imed: "Well done, Seventy-eighth! Yo-Jshall be my own regiment. Anothe.- ilarge like that will win the day." Following on the hM Of the Highlander was the Sixty-f j-rto , Queen's. Arothi luibiuuu inaAf' , ' iu luu juiiji im charged by tlif' oev'-i,; y -eighth,' stood iu the way of Havelock i progress, and upon this the Sixty fourth moving in orderly advance, pourec. i cver.

At this time the rebel cavalry moving off on the plain be; omV-.ho English flank threatened to tiuM.v1), infantry int into con- fusion, mid Have'.yl- Ted a little band of irregularoavali v ;o.s "Gentlemen roiinteers,1.J SerfSI rated from thelfc coi Is. What their enthusiasm was is s .1 ly the conduct of one Capt. Beatso Who was smitten with cholera so severely., that he couldn't "IUSE UP I ADVANCE !" sit his horse. When the devoted band went out on the charge he threw himself on an artillery tool cart, and was carried into action to breatho his last. Now for a few minutes Havelock's entire line wasin close encounter with tho enemy and at many points engaged in hand to hand struggles. The sepoys fought well, facing the English bayonets with the brutal valor of savages. But Nana Sahib's flank was turned, and his ranks were rolled up on the center along the Cawnpore road. The rebel center on the road was the key of the position nnd blocked Havelock's ad vance to the town. Here the sepoys bad a 24-pounder doing serious execution on Havelock's infantry. The ground was so heavy that the artillery animals could not move up the English caunon, nnd ic was the turn of a hand whether Sahib's men would win or not. The rebels rallied at all points for a decisive blow. Again over whelming numbers of cavalry spread out on the plain. Tho Ideating of drums in the sepoy lines and the appearance of mounted officers at the front, Nana Sahib in gaudy costume among them, was the signal for a ounter attack. But Havelock did not wait. His infantry was lying down to take breath, and once more he cried out, "Rise up! Advance!" and the whole line, led by the gixty-fourth, moved calmly on, Tho 24-pounder was on the front of the Sixty fourth, and gave it solid shot until within 800 paces and then fired grapo. At the decisive moment the leader of the Rixfc v-fourth. Mt -"f ' i'iiii -' i ii il Tluvn. lock's sorTahd aid vf aniu, Ha-Jrf, rode di-H rectly upon the deadly gun. The "boy Harry," as he was called, placed himself in front of the gaping muzzle of the piece and dashed on until he reached it, followed by the men, who would quail at nothing under such leadership. The gun was taken and the day was won. The sepoys made an ineffectual stand with infantry and soon gave way in total rout. The English cannon promptly advanced ou the open road, and before dark the barracks of ths old English quarters at Cawnpore were In night. The moral courage of Havelock and the physical daring of his men had done a marvelous work in defeating the exultant rebels on their own ground, with odds of three to one against the attacking column. On the morning following the battle the English soldiery began scouring the pre cincts of Cawnpore in search of rebellious sepoys and of English prisoners. Neither were to be found for a time. At length a European, who had been given an extra sentence of hard labor on the roads, came forward to relate the most horrible chap ter of all this carnival of fiendish cruelty. The prisoners who had survived the mas sacre on the boats had been kept in con finement until the issue of Nana Sahib's battle with Havelock on the 10th, and then murdered down to the last woman and child. The one man left to tell the tale had been overlooked in the hasty move ment of blood, for the victorious yells of Havelock's soldiers had reached Cawnpore, and the Sahib and his crew were in terror for their lives. Havelock had arrived, but too lata for rescue. However, he had scattered and discouraged the rebels, had defeated them four times and taken thirty caunon. The short campaign made Havelock fa mous. He next turned his attention to Lucknow, fifty-five miles distant, where the English commissioner of Oude, Sir Henry Lawrence, with about 500 Europe ans, was surrounded by hordes of sepoys. The revolt of the native regiments at Luck now had taken place quite simultaneously with that at Cawnpore, and Lawrence had placed the garrison in a state of defense for a long siege. GEORGE L.

The epidemic of prosperity which had visited that portion of the Lone Star State favored by the protection of the Nugget Improvement Company had, in a measure, abated. The re ceding wave which had floated hun dreds of delighted voyagers to hav ens of rest and richness had tempora rily stranded upon the shore of idle ness two clerks of the said company. For the tide of business had ebbed. that afternoon, from the office nt F.I Dorado, and the voiinv: men in nues- nun imu no ciioice Jert out to await its flow with what patience they could. "Strange." remarked Car l.yle, " how everything goes in waves. Cold and heat, crime and charity, stagnation and activity, divorce and matrimony wish I was scientist enough to explain the theory." "You'd need an audience of scien tists to comprehend you." McCarthy removed his long legs from his colleague's desk. Whir-lino- around in his chair, he opened a drawer of his own typew riter cabinet and took out a letter and a picture. uanyie looked at him through the rings of smoke he was lazilv Tiuttino- and sighed : "Hang it! Don't vou ever lire nf that business?" "You bet I don't!" MVCnrthv spoke apparent truth. Given a half hour of leisure the tvnewriter nm certain to produce the same velvet framed photograph and the last un derscored epistle of the photograph's original. " Ah-h ! don't I wish that I could see her!" He held the picture at arms length and surveyed it through half-closet! eyes. Carlyle's mustache began to tuin up at the corners, but his friend's in fatuation was so sincere that he rarely let his sarcasm go to the length of words. Slipping bo far down in his own chair that his head rested against its leather-cush-ioned oack,.. aiJUWrftviiig ins . own-triTrT" leg-8. apon the desk which hml just been relieved ol his fellow-toiler's, lie observed : " Speaking of girls they're a queer animal." McCarthy was deep in the letter. He vouchsafed an assenting, guttui al " Ugh !" and read on to the end. "Confound it you! Talk." " Be calm, Jack. It is Shakespeare who says that 'speech is silver but silence is golden'?" "'Shakespeare!' Cornelius, did you ever go to Sunday-school?" " In the days of my youth yes." "You should go again. But speaking of girls " " Y'ou've said that once." "I'll say it twice. Speaking of girls, I hate jour mannish, strong minded sort. Do you know the kind I'll fall in love with?" "No. Nor you." "I do. She must be poor awfully poor. She must be deucedly pretty, too and babyish. Blue eyes, yellow curls, pink cheeks ; timidity, clinging ness, hero-worship for me, her here and all that lot. She must know nothing more of looks than theii covers, and she must exist but for and in ME." " Bosh ! Better go drown yourself !'" "Thanks. I can't, on account oi my 'beggar maid.' " "You'll marry a rich girl. Dark, independent, learned. She'll bossyou from the start." "Never." "Sure. I've observed that one al ways marries the opposite of hit ideal. I shall. 1 said I'd never lovt a girl who was fat and had red hair, but Kitty, here, is as round as a squab, ami her hair is 'auburn.'" " Epitaph , ' Cornelius McCarthy, seer. Aued four-and-twenty. Died of wisdom on the brain.' Oli-ugh-a-ah!' Jack Carlyle gave vent to one of his indescribable yawns a combina tion of shriek, steam-whistle, and tin dulcet notes of a burro. He stretched his six feet odd of length to about ten by raising his tentacle-like n run upward , but was brought to a sud den collapse by the landing of an un abridged dictionary in the pit of hl stomach. The silence which prevailed whi't the "confidential clerk" of the N. 1 C. gathered his anatomical fragment toother was ominous. It w as broke unexpectedly. A cough and a s.noi li ered laugh, both feminine, fell on tht hush with startling distinctness. "Thunder! there's soim-Lo.iyin tin othce, gasped l.urlyle and ro.-e. Glowering at the typewritist and re serving that assailant's punishment for a more v'onvenient setison, l.e be came at once the bland, dignified gentleman whom the N. I. C. had honored with their trust. There was somebody in the office. A very tangible somebody trim of figure, dark of eyes, alert, and self re liant. Her face was grave and quite as dignified as Larlyle's own; but the shallow of a smile still ling red around the deep corners of the pret tiest mouth in the world. "1 want to examine three of tin ranches the Nugget Company have for sale." She opened a map thai she drew from the natty little satcln I at her side, and spread it on the tabh between them. "This, and this, aim this," she said, indicating each bj her dainty fore-finger. ' One of thest tliree will, I think, suit. I wish t, visit them immediately." There was not a wasted word, movement, noi instant of time. Carlyle felt himself as sharply aroused from his afternoon's drowsi ness as it he had suddenly stepped into Wall St. just bel'oreclosinghour. "Well, yes; we have those rancher for sale. Glad to show them to you to-morrow, but it is now rather late in the day to start. Any hour you name, in the morning, I will have a carriage at your disposal.' She gave him a contemptuous sur vey. "I was assured by the president of the firm that the employes would do everything to facilitate my inspec tion of the property. However, I have a carriage at your command. Are you ready?" "Heady certainly. But I must warn you that it will be dark before we get back to El Dorado." ' Very well." The brisk young woman took a sensible silver watch from the waistcoat which was the very counterpart of Carlyle's own and glanced ut its face. "Ten min utes to two. The horses I have hired are warranted to travel ten miles an hour. Two till s ven we can ac complish fifty miles kh1 not post pone your dinner-hour very greatly. The round distance could not be liirtr. so we shall have two hours The unmistakable scorn which em phasized her inquiry stung Carlyle like a nettle. Audibly, he said, adopt ing ner own terse speech, "111 get my hat." Mentally : " I'll reach that vixen!" Then rushed to the inner sanctum for his white head-gear. "Confound her top-loftiness!" he muttered. "Jack oh. Jack!" "Well?" Snatching up a pencil pad, nnd field-glass, and stowing them about his person. " She's begun." "Begun what?" drawing out a blacking brush from some hidden depth, and dashing at the toes of his dusty boots. " Bossing." "Blankety blank!" "Jack, did you ever go to Sunday school?" "I'm going now!" answered the victim, and followed the customer out to the buck-board. Before he had reached its seat the horses were off, and he was ungracefully jerked into the empty place beside her. The team sped along at a pace which promised to verily their own er's -words sis to their capabilities, and for the first distance no one spoke. As they turned out of El Dorado to the open, the girl called to the driver: "Not that way. North first, to Sunset Kant h, then the Beau site. Though I pxpect thi Lucku long will suit me, I'll look at the oth ers, too." "How have you heard so much ol the route?" and "Beckon you've ben here afore, hain't you, ma'am?'' asked Carlyle and the driver, simul taneously. "By study. No!" she answered them both in one curt sentence. "Used ter directin' an' knowin' whttt vou're 'bout, I swan." "Yes." " It's a charming country," volun teered Carlyle, determined to make her more voluble. "That is why lea me one reason," she corrected herself, truthfully. ' Reckon you've!ved in some right smart of a town by yer looks." At first she did not reply; but she w:tw T(trtlyTnfn fi4ewHr t o Hu man ill bluejimiirt tluinto hie brother in cheviot.

I ne depression at t ie corners of the beautiful mouth certainly deepened, and the brown eyes accidentally glanced Carlyle ward; but their gravity was pro found, and the intellectual brow above them appeared so forbidding, that the unhappy mortal dared not, just then, attempt the crushing of her spirit upon which he had so rashly resolved. "I shall be delighted to give you any information you desire, although you seem nearly as conversant with our property us I am." There was a delicate ring of sarcasm under the suavity of the manager, which a dull -ur might have mistaken for flattery. Jane Brown's ears were not dull They were like sea-shells in form and laiiity coloring, and like an Indian's for clearness. Nor were her bright eyes 1 1 nd. With a little sidewise mo tion of her compact body, she man aged to remove herself a bit farther fr m her fellow-traveler, and to look aim squarely in the face. There wits .iot a trace of boldness in her cool raze, yet its object found it disa greeable. "1 regret that I wasobliged to ask .your company, Mr. Carlyle.- I lid it partly to satisfy my brother, iut mostly i'or form's sake." "So I perceive," assented that un fortunate, grimly. Luther Mellcn's services had been greatly in demand of late, but never had he driven such a silent party prospecting." He was used touu .nterrupted question nnd voluble an swer, which he enjoyed amazingly. But here was a probable "home steader," and a woman at that, who eould hold her tongue for the matter of ten miles, w ithout so much as one word. He, also, became dumb with astonishment. At Sunset Ranch they tarried irifly, and the possible purchasi r mp'loyed her time in n peculiar mm -ner. She made Melh n drive to the arioiis points which commanded a vi' w of the lands, and through her luss examined nothing but the soil. r the herbage which covered it. " A magnificent outlook 1" enthusi astically exclaimed Curly e, who had the merit of sincerity in his admira tion. Yes," assented Miss Brown, with haracteristic b'eviiy. "Drive to .ieausite next." There was some mxiety. and a trifling disappoint i lent in her tone. "But, pardon me, I do not think hat you half comprehend the re sources of this tract. Cannot you give a little more time " "No. I have seen all that I wish. What I seek is not here." At Beausite it was the same. But wh n they rode through the rolling .iihness of Luekalong, the girl be ame transformed by a wot d less eag rness, and a silent enthusiasm quite quid to Carlyle's own. Even then, apparently, her eye did not catch the contour of the ground. It was only she green, flower-ilottt d garment vhieh clot lied it. The doubt w hich iad shadowed her intelligent lace j,ave way to joyful convict. on, and one little rapturous ejaculation es caped her. " Exactly what 1 hoped !" he cried, and clapped her well-gloved hands. An action so womanish both sur prised and pleased heresi-ort. "Feia nine, after all," he thought, and smiled toward her. " You like Luck llong best, 1 see." "1 like it and will buy it. You can return to El Dorado, Mr. Melleii." John Carlyle stared. All Ids exper ience had prepared him lor no such promptness as this. " IYrhaps, for your own interests, you should ex amine the property more thoroughly. We are perfectly convinced of the vulue of the laud we sell, but we wish - 1 customers to be equally so. If, aft 4 1, 11 ' , , .iiiiirvui it neii over, you sun desire to purchase, we will make the terms as easy " Jane Drown had allowed this waste of lung power as Ionr as she could. Her little foot tupped the buck-board impatiently, and she put up her hand w ith a gesture of annoyance. "I need no 'terms,' And no further examination." "There are a thousand acres of Luekalong, and the price is fifty dol lars per acre." He considered this a clincher; for, if the truth must be told, the carelul manager of the N. I. C. thought he had gotten hold of r.n adventuress. "Yes. of course. I will give you a draft on the First National Bank of - City, or my check to that upnount, w hichever you prefer." fohn Carlyle no longer sought to V1' i" astonishment. He gasped, and gized at the young woman, wide-eyed and silent. Lutlier Mellen turned his grizzly head, and winked at tho manager, touching his own forehead suggestively. Miss Brown saw the movement nnd smiled. From that same littlesatchel w hich had held her map she produced a letter, addressed to Carlyle's own self, in the well-known hand of the head of the firm. The contents were brief and conclusive: " Honor nny rlir-ck of the lienrer. Jnin Ma tilda Urown, to the amount of one hundred thousand dollnrw. tdioulil Mlie ho defdre. Show her every attention. Johta Stkhliko." The date was a fortnight old, but the document was unmistakably genuine. When the manager was once more deposited at the door of the office of the N. I. C. he was in a worse state of collapse than that occasioned by the assume oi .oa 11 w elister, lor this time it was mental. "How do you likelier" demanded the facetious MeCarthy, as his col league dropped helplessly into a chair. " She she's boujrht the Luckalonrr : ami she's going to pay cash down m the morning, as soon as the pa pers are ready," said Carlyle, with an imbecile smile. "She bought it he- cause site hked the flowers I Some icklv blue things that irrow there. She can't be much more than twenty one, but she must be 'cracked.' " "Ilm-m!

Being himself engaged to a college graduate.the typewritist nau an appreciation lor brainy wom en, and he knew that no such'person as Carlyle described would go into a rash sjMH-ulation, however appear ances might so indicate.

First, that, living at the finest hotel in El Dorado, she was su'terintending the erection of n house ami other buildings at Luekalong. most admir ably constructed for comfort nnd the needs of the climate. Then, that, as soon as the house was habitable, she had moved into it with the invalid brother for w hose sake she had come to Texas. But the little blue flower? The fame of that marvelous blossom spread far and wide, und followed the other rumors into the N. I. C. office, even as it had traveled beyond it into the distant city, where the president o' the company gnashed his teeth in impotent rage. "Outwitted by a chit of ngirlwhom I knew in her cradle!" he groaned.

"Since she walked into this office and took me to see three ranches in one afternoon." "Jupiter Amnion! Say, friend, diii she heat you yawn that day?" Carlyle drew himself up with of fended d gnity.
