Amazed the World Thirty
It -was thirty years aeo that the
Earl of Cardigan's light brigade made
its famous charge at bebastopoi. A
gentleman who was on tho staff of an
English general and who witnessed
the charge gives this description of it:
"On October 25, 1851, our eyes
turned to the heights of Balaklava,
on the possession of which depended
the very existence of the allied forces.
On that day the Bussians made a des
perate attack on our lines, to bo des
perately repulsed. "Word was sent to
headquarters that the enemy, under
cover from a heavy nre from tne lorta,
had left Sebastopol in force and waa
massing himself so as to threaten the
safety of the heights. 1 was at once
sent with an order for the cavalry and
horse artillory to move and bo ready
to assume tho offensive. They had
not to wait long. The Turkish lines
were swept as by a whirlpool, and with
our Mohammedan allies tho word
was sauve qui peut. The heavy cav
alry on tho right and the light bri
gado on tho left "vrere advanced, with
the artillery in tho center playing a
game at long bowls. Meantime a Rus
sian battery was ostontatiously moved
forward, whoBO -well served guns
promised to be embarrassing.
"Lord Raglan, who did not know
tho full strength of tho foe, saw that
this obstacle must bo removed; but
whether or not ho foresaw the neces
sity of first looking beforo tho leap
was taken must bo forevor a mystery.
Tho commanders of tho cavalry bri
gadesLords Lucan and Cardigan,
brothers-in-law, between whom no
love was lost were waiting the word
to engage, Lord Lucan being tho
senior officer. To them sped Captain
Nolan, a slashing hussar. Saluting
the General, ho said ho bore an order
unwritten from Ipm liaglan tnat
the battery must be Silenced and the
guns captured. Lord Lucan, a man
so oautious as to have earned tho
nickname Lord Look-on,' fearing to
expose his small force to any am
bushed dangers, asked for more defi
nite orders. "With a slightly con-
temptueus turn of the handsome lip,
tho aide-do-camp pointed in the direc
tion of tho battery and said:
" 'You see your enemy, my lord.'
"Even tho Earl of Cardigan, im
petuous as ho was generally speak
ing, looked at his commander in doubt
as to the words. Rut, owing to tho
unhappy enmity existing between
them, neither would speak his
thoughts, and once more Nolan, im
patiently waving his sword, which he
had fiercely drawn from its scabbard,
and pointing it to the artillery, cried,
Tako tho guns; those are your or
ders!' "The crisis has arrived. No re
course is left but to do as he is bid.
A cold nod of assent from Lord Lu
can. A profound bow follows from
Lord Cardigan. 'Light division, for
ward, charge!' breaks from his lips.
An echoing cheer ia the reply from
G03 throats, as with clang of scabbard
and rattle of briddle and bit, and the
braying of trumpet, and the ringing
and .Thirteenth Lights, Nine and
Eleventh Hussars, tho latter Lord
Cardigan's own corp, conspicuous in
their cherry-colored .trowsera, and
the Sevonth Lancers, with ranks
closed up and squardrons dressed as
evenly as it at a march past, trot for
ward down the slight declivity. At
their head ride tho gallant Nolan and
the dauntless Cardigan evon in this
Bupreme moment with a reckl oss laugh
upon his face, as ho argues somo
point of war with his brother hussar.
"The unmasked batteries aro al
ready belching forth shot and BholL
The trot breaks into a gallop, the
gallop into a furious, headlong
charge. Already Nolan has fallen,
out down by grapeshotj the secret of
the fatal day dying with him. The
serried ranks show frequent gaps as
saddle after saddle is emptied. 'Closo
up! Close up! Charge f is the unceas
ing cry, and in a shorter timo than
it takes to tell tho opening ranks of
the foe disclosed to the doomed but
indomitable few, cannon to right of
them, cannon to left of them, cannon-
in front of tnem ana now cannon
behind them. On through tho bro
ken Russian lino pressed the noble
army of martyrs, their oriflamme,
their brave leader's flashing saber,
.'With a wild cheer and a wilder
leap the cherry-clad heroes fly over
tho guns as ligmly as tnoy would
over a five-barred gate on the hunt
ing field, sabering the gunners as
they leap. A beardless boy, not yot
17, holds fast to the colors ho has
sworn to carry to doath or vie tory
and falls with tho cry My mother
will hear of this! on his dying lips,
Btill grasping the banner in his hand.
"Far away, clear in front, with his
aid-de-camp and a few choice spirits
on his right hand and on his left
nono ahead of him, raging like a lion,
fights as with a forlorn hope, the
leader and commander of tho Light
Brigade, Ho bears a charmed life
and his brawny arm is endowed with
a power of slaughter that grows
mightier every moment from the
meat it fed on. Farther and farther
he dashes on, cleaving his way with
his blood-stained sword till he reach
es tho last of the guns.
"Here, when he sees the end is not
yet, but that rank upon rank of cav
alry and infantry, with heavy artillery
in tho rear, stretches out back to the
city's utmost bastion, he recognizes
how useless it will be further to
tempt the fates and fight one against
a thousand. Coolly and calmly, as
if in Hyde Park, ho takes in tho situ
ation at a glance and gives the word
to the trumpeter to sound first tho
'assembly,' and then the 'retreat' A
bullet crashes through the boy's
hand as ho raises the trumpet to his
mouth, but, stoic-like, ho makes no
sign. Clear rings out tho summons.
A dozen only answer tho ca.l. Not
one, save Lord Cardigan, but is
won ided more or less severely, and
his clothing shows where lance, or
saber, or ball had plowed their way
over his unscathed flesh. Right
about the little baud turns, leaving
tho boy trumpeter doad on the ground
"Tho onemy paralyzed by the
charge and fancying that tho whole
British army supports the handful
of braves, pauses in his murderous
work to cheer the 103 survivors who
returned slowly and sadly to the
place from which they came, having
from a military standpoint achieved
nothing, yet covered with a deathless,
fadeless wreath of glory. it was
magnificent,' said General Bosquot,
'but it was not war. '
Plymouth, Jan. 5. The division
of tho channel squadron comprising
tlio ironclads JSorlhumueriana,
Achilles aud Aginconrt, havo been
orlered immediately to propare for
London, Jan. 5. The Times says:
"If tho admiralty orders sent to
Portsmouth after the recent cabinet
meeting are not charged with a
weighty measure, or inspired with a
strenuous purpose, they were singu
larly indiscreet and inopportune.
They are certain to be interpreted
abroad as tho preparing measuro for
some very important event It is
well to sustain a farce, if necessary,
but it is doubtful, in spito of tho ap
parent activity, that a new chapter
will bo opened in the foreign policy
of the nation. Tho recent council
has reproached the cabinet for its
undecided and evasive foreign pol
icy." The articlo concludes by ex
pressing an opinion that the ministry
would better resign iE dissension has
a place in the cabinet and the minis
ters aro only capable of drifting, after
tho manner of'tIwiia.involved
England in the Crlmeau war.
London, Jan. 5. The St. James
Qazette asserts to-day that Bismarck
has suggested tho cession to Ger
many by England of the island of
Heligoland, in return for the with
drawal of Germany s claims in New
Guinea. Heligoland is ne.ir the
mouth of the rivers Elbe and "Weser,
and is a watering place of note. This
statement is considered exceedingly
doubtful. However, rumors of this
kind tend to show the present tension
of the public mind.
The report that Germany intends
to disregard the presence of the
British flag recently unfurled at St.
Lucia bay, on tho east coast of Af
rica, is doubted by all prominent
ORANGE AND GREEN.
St. Joeks,N. F.t Jan. 5. Yester
day at Bay Boberts, tboro "was anoth
er furious Orange outbreak. Now
YorkBedemptionist fathers who aro
holding a mission atthat place were
besieged and imprisoned in their
dwellings. An Orange arch was
erected near the Catholic church and
hundreds of armed Orangemen pa
raded tho streets. "When intelligence
reached St Johns the United States
consul demanded from Governor
Glover protection for tho lives and
liberty of United States citizons. A
meeting of tho executive counsel has
been summoned, and the British cor
vette Tenedos has been ordered to
Bay Bobert, and a largo body of po
lice, under Inspector Carty, were dis
patched by special train to tho scene
of tho trouble
St. Joxns, N. F., Jan., 5. The lat
est dispatch from Bay Boberts says:
"The Boman Catholic bishop, Mc
Donald, was prevented by Orange
men from holding services in the
church, which tho Orangemen sur
rounded. Affairs are growing darker
and more threatening. Hundreds of
armed men are parading tho streets.
The police aro unequal to tho occa
sion. Tho British ship of war has
arrived to reinforce tho civil author
ities. Orangemen refuso to take
down their arches and flags."
In England it is considered a grand
thing to belong to the nobility and
to have in your veins what is called
"noble blood." But it often happens
that tho blood of a nobleman is not
as good as that of tho vigorous man
who takes care of the nobleman's
cows and pigs. Truly noblo blood is
that which is enriched with iron, and
eiroulates in healthy bodies. TheBov.
