BATTLE OP ALMA.
THE BATTLE FIELD.
Divested of technicalities, which to professional
men are superfluous, and by the uninitiated incom-
prehensible, the site of the battle of Alma may be
easily described. Advancing towards it, as seen
by the allied forces, a vast amphitheatre presented
itself, of luxuriant vineyards laden with grapes,
and gardens of surpassing beauty, in which the
apple, nectarine, peach, and pear tree, all the
flowers and fruits best known in England, ripened,
bloomed, and flourished in a fulness of maturity,
that as regarded home productions, threw all com-
petition in the shade.
4 THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
Through the centre of this valley runs a great
road, across, which, at about two and a half miles
from the sea, the Russians had established their
position. Precipitious cliffs from three to four hun-
dred feet high (those attacked and carried by the
heroic French Zouaves) strengthened the Russian
left — which cliffs, gradually diminishing in height,
swept round inland, and formed the amphitheatre
adverted to, terminated by a pinnacle or mass of
rock, again jutting boldly forward into the plain,
occupied by the extreme right of the Russians ;
and having between it and the higher cliffs at
the other extremity (Prince MenschikofFs left) an
opening or entrance of about two miles wide into
the amphitheatre within ; fringed by the Alma, a
shallow stream or rivulet fordable by men in most
places. Fronting the allied army, on the river's
near side, stood the villages of Bouliouk on the
left, and Almatamak on the right hand. The

opposite bank of the Alma (spanned by a wooden
bridge) ascending abruptly by rugged slopes, until
it formed an inner ridge, or rising ground from
sixty to one hundred and fifty feet high, running
parallel to the river, obstructing the entrance to
the larger amphitheatre described ; and this inner
ridge or hill side, had consequently, to be sur-
mounted in order to reach the key of the Russian
position, which was the protruding pinnacle of
rock alluded to as forming one of its boundaries
at the entrance of the valley.
For the effective defence of this point, and in
short of the entire position, the best possible pre-
parations had been made. Half way down the
hill in front, a trench was excavated several hun-
dred yards in length, to afford shelter whilst re-
pelling an advance. Artillery was posted on every
spot that commanded the river fords, and practi-
cable approaches. The willows and other trees on

the banks of the Alma were cut down, to deprive
assailants of the slightest cover, and posts erected
at measured distances, to show the ranges of the
guns and line of fire best adapted to destroy. A
covered battery, somewhat retired on the right,
mounting seventeen heavy guns, many of them
thirty-two pounders, flanked the whole of the right
of the position, and commanded the village and
fords of Bouliouk. Upon the table lands, afforded
by the slopes of the inner ridge, the enemy's
infantry were placed, and on the heights above
his great reserve, amounting in the whole (cavalry
and artillery included), at least, to fifty thousand
men— covered and supported by the fire of one
hundred and eighty cannon.
Such then was the field, — with its con-
THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
War emblazoned — toil inured,
Gathering throng the allied host,
Sickness, suffering, want endured,
On Crimea's rugged coast,
For the drum and bugle blast
Now awaken echo's train,
Slumbering 'mid the autre 's vast
Piled round Almatamak's plain,
Crossed by Alma's flood,
Which ere long for thousands slain
Mourned in tears of blood : —
No— the modest trembling stream
Blushed at foiled ambition's dream.
8 THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
Gallant Gaul, and Britain brave,
Side by side behold,
On their right the Moslem grave
Famed in fields of old ;
O'er the whole St. Arnaud ruled, 1
Marshal meet of such array,
Afric trained and battle schooled,
Chief of warrior chiefs that day
As his rank bespoke : —
Eaglan 2 leading to the fight
England, Ireland, Scotland's might,
" Britain's hearts of oak ;"
Nor had ever summer airs
Prouder banners spread than theirs.
THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
Worthy of her ancient fame
Eussia takes the field,
Howsoever much to blame
Never known to yield ;
Bugged as their father-land,
Fierce in spirit, strong of hand,
Beady at the Czar's command
Willingly to die ;
Mark where Bussia*s warrior band,
Hold yon mountain high ;
Forty thousand — bayonets told — *
Full six thousand horsemen bold,
Whilst two hundred cannon vast
Bound a deathshade deeply cast,
Where, by mine and firm stockade,
Every nook's a fortress made ;
Upward, guns of largest size
Midway rake the hillock's rise,
10 THE BATTLE OF ALULA.
And from neighbouring rocky steep
Stream, and gorge, and valley sweep,
Flanking ford and pass,
Peering forth from caverns deep,
Masked midst flowers and grass : —
Till exhausted skill at length
Proudly views its massive strength,
And, each stratagem essayed
That hath foeman's footstep stayed,
Menschikoff* might justly deem
Armed assault a maniac's dream,
Laughed at as a jest,
Waiting but at one fell swoop
On the coming foe to stoop
From this Eagle nest,
As his eye with conscious pride
Glanced along the mountain's side ; —
Nor had sunbeam ever sat
On a host more fierce than that !
THE BATTLE OF ALMA. 11
Hardy Briton — fiery Gaul,
Whom no sights or sounds appal,
Here a stubborn foe you find,
Be not to his prowess blind ;
Gird your loins, 'mid cannon's roar,
Trumpet's scream, and rocket's hiss,
E'en your sires renowned of yore,
Ne'er saw field like this ;
For — in horrors undefined,
Death's pale horse here stalks before,
Leaving hope behind.
Marshalled first, in wedge-like form, 5
Forward dashes knightly France,
Prompt to break 'mid battle's storm
Still the foremost lance ;
Gallia boast them as thine own,
Finer soldiers — braver men,
Ne'er upheld thy laurelled throne,
Better fought than then !
12 THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
Through the valley on the right,
Charging heedless of the slain,
Canrobert 6 his Eagle's flight
Points the heights to gain ;
Led by one whose Princely name,*
Highest stands in kingly fame,
Once more, hailed with fierce acclaim,
At those fatal fords,
Where recross, midst shrouding flame,
French and Eussian swords. 8
Onward France ! the foe aghast,
Sees the ford and village past;
But, avoid yon mountain steep, 9
Beetling o'er the foaming deep,
Full four hundred feet on high,
Steeply towering to the sky,
Up, whose rocky face to strive,
Mortal man shall not survive ?
Honoured France ! thy mettled blood,
Heeds not mountain, tower, or flood ;
Higher yet — and higher still,
See ! they climb yon deadly hill,
Hanging there, a mote in size
O'er the black cliff's rifted rise,
Clinging fast with clutching hand,
Where a goat could scarcely stand,
THE BATTLE OF ALMA. 13
Or, as valour's self may end,
Mangled, writhing, prone descend: —
Still — at length a gallant few,
Gain the top and form anew,
Where, e'en Menschikoff that morn,
Deemed attack " a hope forlorn ;"
Sergeant Fleury 10 past the rest
Pushing on with dauntless breast,
Till he gains the watch tower walls ;
And near Prince Napoleon falls ;
Honored be his laurelled head,
Numbered with— the deathless dead !
Then once more, proud Eussia sees,
Foes whom here, no snow-storms freeze ;
Nay beholds o'er forts reduced,
Sight to quench her cherished pride,
Moscow's Eagles, reproduced
At the Alma's side ;
All their pristine glories bright
Clothed in renovated light !
France, what thus these heroes dare,
Thousands of thy sons still sigh,
Breathing as an earnest prayer,
Hour like this, for thee, to share —
See such sight — and die !
14 THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
But, whilst Bosquet's 11 gallant bands
Thus outflank them on the height,
Seek we, how the battle stands,
Towards the Russian right ;
Where heroic Eaglan sage,
Calmly scans war's blood-stained page,
And in characters of fire
Watches Bussia's vengeful ire,
Told by symbols that reveal
Europe's future woe or weal.
Firmly as the steadfast rock
Which defends their island shore,
Meets the wintry tempest's shock,
But its utmost rage to mock ;
Moves each British corps ;
In contiguous columns twain, 12
Traversing the flowery plain,
Towards a ford where Alma's bank
Seemed least clothed in verdure dank ;
Though with batteries o'erspread,
Bristling from its sedgy bed,
Up to where a massive mound,
Intersects the higher ground,
Wherein ambushed death reclines
Canon-shaped in triple lines ;
And displays a sylvan scene
Fair as youthful love would paint,
THE BATTLE OF ALMA. 15
Such as Eden might have been,
Marred by deadly taint.
On they rush-— a lurid gleam
Scintillates from mound and tower,
Lights with death the livid stream,
Shrouds an iron shower,
Harrowed, torn, the ground upheaves
As where ploughs have passed,
Thousands fall, like autumn leaves,
Seared by wintry blast ; —
Yet unmoved, with steady nerve,
Lo ! the modern Spartan's dress,
Decimated — do not swerve,
But still onward press,
As deployed — their lines advance —
" Go it England" 13 — forward France !
And the day's your own ;
Though its horrors to enhance,
Plain and path with fire are strown ; —
Dimly seen by lightning's glance,
Flowing blood and shattered bone ; —
Whilst the village in a blaze,
Flashes, flickers, and decays.
Through the water, up the bank,
Now they struggle, rank o'er rank,
16 THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
Dashing into vineyards wide
Spreading o'er the river's side,
Where, the fruit they calmly strip 14
Just to cool the parching lip,
Then refreshed in heart and will,
Grasp their arms and mount the hill ;
Led by Brown, at sixty-five, 15
Shouting, as they upward strive,
" England ! Ireland ! sturdy Gael !
Now your trusty bayonets try,
Heedless of this iron hail,
Forward — do, or die l"
Yelling fiercely at the thought,
Scotland's blood is mantling high,
Nearly unto madness wrought
By the Guardsman's thrilling cheer,
And by Campbell's startling cry,
" We'll have none but bonnets here !" 16
Which in friendly guise defied
Heroes never yet denied —
And who charging, breast to breast,
With them cross the rampart's crest 1 *
There, flowed forth no scanty flood,
Britain, of thy richest blood,
For, commingling as of old,
Ardent Knight and Bowman bold,
Lordly heir, and peasant brave,
Found alike a soldier's grave.
THE RATTLE OF ALMA. 17
Nor, did an unworthy foe,
Meet their vigour's fiercest blow ;
Long for dogged nerve renowned,
Inch by inch they hold their ground ;
Or e'en failing to defend,
Like a fiery cloud descend
Fiercely to destroy,
Fatal as the simoon's breath,
Spreading desolation, death,
Where was life and joy : —
Lo ! the fruits ambition bears,
Widow's scream, and orphan tears !
But — as when in hunter's toil,
Lured to death, yet unsubdued,
'Midst appliances to foil,
Mangled, writhing, gore imbued,
Still the Lion sternly shares
All vindictive malice dares,
And though maimed, and wounded sore,
Turns to make one effort more ;
Breaks through every tangled tie,
And in strength — the whirlwind's sweep,
Hurls the foes who seek to fly,
Headlong o'er the steep : —
Thus— reforming, where destroyed,
Closing o'er their comrades slain,
18 THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
Still the stern brigades deployed,
Closed — and charged again ; —
Princely Cambridge at their head, 18
Leading midst unnumbered dead.
Then, whilst steel was steel opposed,
Waned the deadly fire around,
For no smitten foe disclosed
Aught but arm-dealt wound ;
All in one sad livery drest,
Cloven skull, or gaping breast.
Fainting in the sun's fierce ray,
Struggling up that dread defile,
Hope still cheered the warrior's way,
Throned on woman's smile,
Shedding o'er that field of strife,
Promised blessings, honours, life —
And, bright thought, all else above,
Laurels gained for those we love.
Strike then, England, for the past,
Hearts at home and ancient fame !
On them, Scotland, like a blast
Fraught with scorching flame !
Dear old Ireland, be not last
To uphold thy name,
" Faugh-a-ballagh's" 1 ^ stirring cheer,
Ne'er was wanted more than here !
THE BATTLE OF ALMA. 19
Long, in savage clasp embraced,
Hostile ranks were interlaced ;
Till deploying as they fought,
Britain's flanks were forward brought,
Like red serpents still unrolled 80
Some fresh victim to enfold ;
Then, with a terrific shout,
Closing on the weakened foe,
Flight became a perfect rout,
Checked advance an overthrow ; —
For, victorious on the left,
France o'erlapped the " heady fight,"
Having Bussia's helmet cleft,
In her 'hour of might ;
And avenged, at one fell blow,
Years of hatred, guile, and woe.
20 THE BATTLE OF ALMA.
Soon diversely scattered wide,
Ebbed the blood-stained human tide ;
Leaving, as when storms are o'er,
Wrecks abandoned on the shore ;
Not as men bereft pf hope
On some future field to cope,
But, like wearied boar at bay,
Conquered, yet resolved to slay.
Whilst face-stricken, nearly blind,
Hot pursuit and death behind,
Menschikoff 81 the country crossed,
And with heart forlorn,
Witnessed — all but honour — lost
Since that fatal morn.
Proof, if proof were still required ?
That, though Kings be power elate,
Confident in strength acquired,
Heaven decrees each battle's fate !
And — the pride which man applauds,
All that fool's distinction deem,
Are but folly's tinselled gauds : —
Life itself— a passing dream.

Marshal St. Arnaud, generalissimo, and com-

Paris on the 26th of August, 180] . At the age of
fifteen entered the garde des corps, and became
a sub-lieutenant in the infantry of the line, but
subsequently left the army, and did not return to
the service until 1831. Took an active part in
the war of La Vendee, as orderly officer to Mar-

siege of Constantine ; received the decoration of
the Legion of Honor ; and in 1840, having dis-
played great courage and talent in a series of
battles in Algeria, was raised to the rank of Com-
mandant in the 18th regiment of infantry. In
1842, made Lieutenant-Colonel 15th regiment —
in 1844, Colonel 32nd regiment — and in 1847,
Major-General : — having also been successively
promoted to the rank of officer and commander
in the Legion of Honor. In 1850, General St.
Arnaud commanding the province of Constantine,
as such, made a brilliant campaign against the
Kabyles. Subsequently returned to France; re-
ceived the command of the 2nd division of the
army of Paris ; and soon afterwards was made
minister of war. In 1 852, promoted Marshal of
France ; named senator ; and received the grand
cross of the Legion of Honor.

commander-in-chief. And, after a display of
physical courage, talent, and energy, only ex-
ceeded by the heroic magnanimity with which,
whilst actually suffering the agonies of death from
a fatal disease, he continued to fulfil his functions
to the last ; — gloriously perished in the execution
of his duty, dying of long-standing heart disease,
on the 29th September, 1854 ; after achieving
(all circumstances considered) one of the greatest
victories upon record. Among the manifold
heroes of whom France can boast, his name may
be proudly enrolled — for, to the political opponent
or private slanderer, it will be sufficient to reply,
that, viewed from a distance through a distorting
medium, there appear to be spots upon the sun.
France and Europe, by his decease, have sustained
a loss it will be difficult to repair.

Raglan might here be considered supereroga-
tory; but the following extract from Marshal St
Arnaud's despatch, will be read throughout the
land with exultation : " The English attacked
the Eussian positions in admirable order, under
the fire of their cannon, carried them, and drove
off the Russians. The bravery of Lord Raglan
rivals that of antiquity ; in the midst of cannon
and musket shot he displayed a calmness which
never left him." In short, the presence of mind,
promptitude, and placid determination of Lord
Raglan, during the entire day, in the hottest of
the fire, and most exposed positions, excited
universal admiration — in courage, sagacity, and
experience, his Lordship is unsurpassed by any
existing omc'er of his standing.

Prince Menschikoff commanded in chief —
General Kirukoff the right — and General Gorts-
chakoff the left wing of the Eussian army. And,
that Prince Menschikoff considered his position
on the heights of Alma impregnable there can be
no doubt, as in an intercepted despatch, addressed
to His Imperial Majesty the Czar, he promises
speedily to inform him of the entire defeat of the
invaders. In fact, when it is considered that fifty
thousand men so advantageously posted, with one
hundred and eighty cannon, had to be attacked,
up the face of a steep hill, by thirty thousand in-
fantry, supported by an artillery force not pos-

sessed of one half the number of the enemy's
guns, and of inferior calibre, such a conviction
on Prince Menschikoff 's part appeared to be war-
ranted by circumstances. That these obstacles
were overcome, and a victory gained over such
opponents, so located, in itself speaks volumes in
favour of the daring enterprize, inflexible courage,
and heroic perseverance of the conquerors, whose
military qualities, when thus happily united, are
capable of achieving anything, not in itself a phy-

His Imperial Highness Prince Napoleon, com-

and in Marshal St. Arnaud's despatch is thus ad-
verted to : " Prince Napoleon, at the head of his
division, took possession of the large village of
Almatamak, under the fire of the Eussian bat-
teries. The Prince showed himself worthy of the
great name he bears." To which, it may be
added, that his Imperial Highness was received

frequently rose from the ground to join) and
other acclamations, deservedly elicited by his in-

trepid conduct and heroic demeanour where
danger and death were imminent upon manifold
remarkable occasions :— commenting upon which,
a sergeant of Zouaves summed up the Prince's
qualifications with a knowing wink, by observing —
" That cock's of the right kind, comrades — he
should have served with the Old Guard!" In
fact, there can be no doubt Prince Napoleon in-
herits the hereditary military talents, and unques-
tionable personal courage, which are known to be
the characteristics of his illustrious family.

The feelings of the French nation generally, as
regards Russia, may be best estimated by an ex-
tract from the notes of one of their own country-
men : " Oh ! the glorious and beautiful spectacle !
two armies were about to join battle under our
eyes. Our friends, our brethren in arms, at last
were on the point of finding themselves face to
face with the enemy so long wished for, so long
desired. France was about to cross swords with
Bussia — how great the duel !" Except from per-
sonal observation, it is impossible to appreciate
the patriotic enthusiasm and devotion by which
the heart of every Frenchman is influenced upon

The precise nature of the exploit adverted to,
and the difficulties surmounted, are thus described
by a spectator : " Our centre" (the French) " was
now in motion, and advancing in good order on
the village. At noon it approaches that position
which is covered by a cloud of Russian skir-
mishers. . The cannons roar, and the fire spreads
everywhere. During this time we see our right

clinging to everything, and swarming along like
ants. After twenty minutes' climbing we see them
rising on the crest of the hill, crowning every
elevation, and before Menschikoff could have be-
lieved his eyes, we have ten thousand men out-
flanking him on his left. Then he bethinks him
of driving back the danger, and launches against
Bosquet's Zouaves thirty pieces of artillery and
several columns of infantry. It is, however, too
late. Our troops do not give way a foot, six
pieces of artillery have succeeded in passing the
bridge, and advance to support Bosquet. When
Lord Baglan saw our divisions of the right climb-
ing the granite walls of the heights which shut in
the river, he applauded and shouted, 4 They are
not men, they are lions and tigers.'" And most
certainly, viewed in any light, this was an achieve-
ment which will always claim a conspicuous posi-
tion on the records of military daring.
Many of the attending incidents were deeply

interesting, but space will here admit of only one
selection. Traversing the edge of the cliff which
the Zouaves had so nobly scaled and carried, in
search of any misery it might be possible to re-
lieve, on the morning after the battle, my atten-
tion was at length attracted to a French officer
who lay dead within a few yards of the verge of
the rocks, face downward, with the bodies of
three Eussian soldiers around him. One of them
still grasped the strap of the French officer's
epaulette, though the sword of the latter had
evidently, whilst he was so held, been thrust
through the Muscovite, in whose breast it re-
mained ; the Eussian, even in death, keeping hold
of a discharged pistol, which, with a bullet wound
in the officer's neck, told their own story of savage
though unequal combat, terminated by the de-
struction alike of the assailants and the assailed.
Although by no means an isolated instance in
which the same description of evidence proved

that even greater disparity of numbers had as
fiercely contended on this " field of death ;" fronf
the peculiar disposition of the bodies, I paused to
examine this group ; and upon gently turning oyer
the French officer's body, became at once enlight-
ened as to causes and results. Beneath, and
gathered under him, clearly whilst dying, as it
bore the imprint of a gory hand in many places,
was a small tricolored flag, which, as well as a
portion of its short staff, was torn and ball-shat-
tered, actually riddled in such a manner as to
render it incomprehensible how it could have
been carried even thus far. The flag was so
crumpled up, I know no better term, as to be
quite concealed by the officer's body (surrounded
by the others) when stretched out to die : and the
last effort of the same blood-stained hand, had
been to remove his decoration of the Legion of
Honor, and to thrust it inside the breast of his
coat, where the officer's cross and ribbon still

remained in his grasp, squeezed against the
miniature of a young and handsome woman, sus-
pended round his neck; whose placid counte-
nance, thus associated with the horrors around,
appeared as if smiling at these ghastly proofs of
the instability of human life, its love, ambition,
hopes, and happiness ! On his person there were
but few papers, and those rendered nearly illegible
by blood stains. I made out, however, among
them, many scraps of, to me, original verse, and
therefore esteeming him a brother of tho gentle
art, I resolved that the head of the troubadour
should not remain unb.uried. And was still

was a gallant and promising soldier, the orphan
son of an officer who had served under Napoleon
the First, remarkable for the mildness of his dis-
position and literary attainments ; who, after scal-
ing the cliff with the color slung across his back,
was last seen forcing his way through a host of
enemies, and striking down all before him, until
thus slain by a pistol-shot in the moment of
victory. The missing color, it was feared, had
been lost ; and the exultation with which its re-
covery was hailed, amounted almost to frenzy.
As a national characteristic, military enthusiasm,
which tends to foster among the populace, gener-
ally, an almost universal desire to become soldiers,
is, without doubt, more predominant in France
than any other country whatsoever; and their
natural disposition and personal qualifications
are unquestionably well adapted to the profession

Thus outflank them on the height.
General Bosquet, a celebrated brave and ener
getic officer, commanded a division of the French
army at the battle of Alma. He is thus men-
tioned by Marshal St. Arnaud: "On the 20th,
from six o'clock in the morning, I carried into
operation with the division of General Bosquet,
reinforced by eight Turkish battalions, a move-
ment which turned the left of the Bussians and
some of their batteries. General Bosquet ma-
nceuvered with as much intelligence as bravery.
This movement decided the success of the day."
And the General can be truly said, upon this
occasion, to have increased a reputation of which
his country may be proud.

This is only a plain statement of what actually

refresh themselves with the grapes as calmly as if
" at ease " upon parade. Even theirs, however,
did not exceed the coolness said to have been ex-
hibited by a splendid six-foot specimen of Tippe-

directions, roared out, " I wonder, Jack, what

no objection to your seeing me though. But here

The first British division commanded by his
Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, namely
the Grenadier, the Coldstream, and Scotch Fusilier
Guards, and the Highland Brigade, under Major-
General Sir Colin Campbell, consisting of the
42nd, 79th, and 93rd regiments, carried the re-

Britain's best blood, in all ranks, was profusely
poured forth, the only emulation appearing to be

Across the very ground whereon the 7th, 23rd,
and 33rd regiments had been literally destroyed,
the Highlanders and Guards, over the bodies of
their fallen comrades, proceeded (as described
below) to attack the mound or earthwork, that
had proved so fatal to its former assailants, and
which presented as formidable an obstacle as it is
possible to imagine. With a deep trench in front,
seventeen brass thirty-two and twenty-four pounder
guns, were mounted on a turfed breastwork, occu-
pied by two thousand troops of all arms, the
battery and its approaches being also flanked and
enfiladed from all quarters by the fire of large
masses of infantry posted on the higher grounds.
A loud cheer by the Guards, was replied to with
a thrilling yell by the Highlanders, as the enemy's
cannon and musketry fire opened upon them
within a distance of one hundred yards. "By

the pipes, distinctly audible above the battle's din,
rang in my ears, and I looked upon the Campbell,
somewhat in advance, leading up to the cannon's
mouth, crying out at the top of his voice, ' Well
hae nane but Highland bonnets here!' In the
delirium of my love for Scotland at that moment
— and the thought, that even an arm so humble
as mine was there, to support her honour — my
heart leaped, and my teeth set, and my temples
throbbed, until I became actually giddy with ex-
citement, as I grasped my claymore, and they
brought their bayonets to the charge, and we all,

in channels equally obvious to the observer, as
all other national characteristics. " How did you
feel, Tom?" said a gigantic guardsman to his
athletic, light haired, blue eyed comrade, as they
lay down on their straw for the night — " how did
you feel, when that infernal fire from the redoubt
opened upon us in front, almost close enough to
singe our whiskers ?" " Feel?" was the cairn re-
joinder — " why I felt I had a musket in my hands,
and a heart behind it, and remembered my dear

Lord Raglan's Despatch states: "His Royal
Highness the Duke of Cambridge brought his
division into action in support of the light division
with great ability, and had for the first time an
opportunity of showing the enemy his devotion to
Her Majesty, and to the profession of which he is
so distinguished a member." When about to
storm the redoubt, His Royal Highness, rushing
to the front of the Guards, gave the order to
charge, and afforded many other proofs of his
ability and courage as a chivalrous leader.

Whatever may be the extent of Prince Menschi-

by him at Constantinople and elsewhere as a
. diplomatist, of his being a great general, a most
persevering, gallant, devoted and faithful soldier,
there cannot now remain a doubt. Although
severely wounded in the face and hand at Alma,
he has since continued to conduct many important
operations at Sebastopol and vicinity, with heroic
fortitude under the most trying and adverse cir-
cumstances, for which it would be a mistake to

deny him the credit he deserves. Most men can
fight a winning battle, but it requires no common
degree of moral and physical courage to bear up
with undiminished energy against reiterated dis-
comfitures. To Prince Menschikoff this species
of merit will be accorded by all parties — and he
has fortunately to deal with two great nations who
can feelingly appreciate and honour the struggles
made by (even mistaken) patriotic gallantry,
notwithstanding it is, and has been pertinaciously
exerted in a manner detrimental to their interests.
To conquer an opponent so determined, adds ma-
terially to the zest of victory, and — next to having
no such foe to conquer — is, the greatest blessing to

" The pious and accomplished Author of this work has traversed the East

companion to all students of the Sacred Volume. Its details are, through-
out, most inteiesting ; and the engravings by which it is illustrated are in all
cases extremely well executed, and in many instances are eminently beautiful.
We should say, that from the elegance of the Volume it would be a very
appropriate girt to young persons of piety, who are habitual students of the

They pretend to no ambitious flights. We hope they have been blessed to

greater will be his profit."— Church q/ England Magazine.
** Of Archdeacon Garbett's Sermons it is impossible to speak too highly,"
" The Sermons, apart from the text, are such as the catholicity and piety
of Archdeacon Garbett would lead us to expect. The Beatitudes suggested
to his earnest and spiritual mind many high and holy thoughts, and leaving
the beaten track of commentating, he wrote down these thoughts. To read
with ordinary attention what he has written, and not be pleased and edified,
would be impossible. He Bpeaks out of the fulness of a warm heart and well-
cultivated mind, and we earnestly hope that many thousands, whom his
living ministrations cannot reach, will hear him speak through the medium
of this charming volume."— Christian Timet.

of our youth." —Christian Remembrancer.

" So many applications are made to us for histories suited to a period of
life when the mind is beginning to develope its power, and to find satisfac-
tion in connecting the past with the present and the future in human affairs,
that we are induced to recommend these volumes, which however widely
circulated, have not half the circulation which they deserve. They are clearly
written. They neither minister to childish imbecility, or take for granted
a measure of knowledge which cannot be lawfully expected of the young.
They present the page of history as it really is— not a series of dry details,
nor of gorgeous spectacles, but with enough of plain fact to instruct the
understanding, and of romantic incident to kindle the sympathies and affec-
tions. The German school of historical doubters are neither listened to by
Mrs. Gray as oracles, nor rejected as impoBters. Niebuhr is heard, without,
as in Borne cases, being worshipped. Those will do little justice to these
volumes who regard them as of value only to the young. We know of no
book of the kind in which the upper classes of public schools may more suc-
cessfully study those facts of which they are apt to be miserably ignorant,
and in which their fathers may find more suggestive hints for the Pulpit and
the Senate." — Christian Observer*
"We have no hesitation in saying, that this is one of the best histories of
the Roman Empire for children and young people which has come under our
notice. Mrs. Hamilton Gray has made herself acquainted with at least some
of the more important ancient writers on the subject of which she treats,
and also with the criticisms of Niebuhr and other modern investigators of
Roman history." — Athenaum.
" It may be recommended as a clear, rapid, and well arranged summary
of facts, pointed by frequent but brief reflections. . . • The book is a
very good compendium of the Imperial History, primarily designed for chil-
dren, but useful for all."— Spectator.
" It would be an erroneous impression to convey of this volume, that it is
written solely for schools and children. In reality it is an abridgment far
more likely to be useful to grown-up persons, who can reflect upon the
working of general laws, and make their own observations upon men and
things. A striking characteristic of the book is the impartiality of its
political tone, and its high moral feelings—Examiner.

" The sale of the first edition of this pleasing volume was commensurate
with its worth. The Author accomplished two objects by its original publi-

religious family, combined with an elegant description of the diversified
scenery of the bike countries ; and the second, a donation, to a considerable
amount, by the sale to the purposes of the Church Missionary Society. The
tame objects are kept in view in the second issue, and we can, therefore, do
nothing better now to increase its circulation, than by assuring our readers
that the excellence of the design has been sought to be performed in the
most satisfactory manner."— -Belts Messenger.

" The name prefixed to this volume is so dear to the Christian and literary
world, that we took it up with a feeling of pleasure and interest, and have
not been disappointed. It is by the nephew of the celebrated author of the
' Ode on the Burial of Sir John Moore,' pronounced by Byron to be the
chef-d'auvre of all odes in our tongue. The sermons are simple, warm,
affectionate, scriptural, and substantial ; there is still a gleam of genius
beneath all, which betrays that power is modulating itself to humility, and
that there is no gap in the links of hereditary talent," &c. — Church of
