Madison Express (Newspaper) - September 19, 1840, Madison, Wisconsin and BY WILLIAM Wi WYMAN 1 MADISON WISCONSIN From the Lady's Amaranth LEOPOLD EXILED POLE BY WILLIAM F IN the concatenation of events which make up a history there are so many which by the help of fiction be portrayed in stronger and more vivid colors that numerous writers in der to render their productions more and interesting to a marvelous loving world venture to indulge in hyper- bole and frequently do not scruple to late truth itself but how soever the work may be it affords but little satisfaction after the perusal ot it to think that scarcely u word of what has been read with no much avidity is true and though the imagination of the reader may soar w that of the author and tho croato pictures various and tul ft will bo allowed by every one of and erudition that descriptions ot the of real life on account of their solidity and truth have a vast pre- eminence over the best productions of the moat brilliant fancy In the writing of the follow ing story especial care has been taken that nothing fictitious is introduced ns it is that it will be found to possess sufficient interest without the aid of romance and accordingly throughout the narrative there will be a strict ence to verity That a complete history of the hero of our tale mny be presented to it will necessary to date his career from the time when every human being becomes an accountable intelligence when the mind receives power to disc rim between what is right and whut is nor will it be needful to begin at notwithstanding many incidents in iv occur in the early childhood and even in the infancy ol some persons n sketch of which would be highly interesting it is seldom that we discover till that age at which a child becomes a thinking responsible being the ni nt of any traits of that may be pronounced ai indicative of what the future course of life may or any so re- as to be worth a delineation to account of the eventful and adventurous life ot Konarski it may bo to take a concise survey of his genealogy From time had his ancestors blazed as bright and shining lights of the Polish nation and ever had they occupied highest places among the moat of their country Independently ot the honors they inherited from their forefathers by being of noble extraction our hero's immediate predecessors gained lasting by tho distinguished rv tho wed in the frequent but un struggles of their unfortunate for freedom and rights in were the proofs they gave of their ardent and exulted patriotism and palpably their astonishing and less lity demonstrate that they were fully entitled to a namo among the most daring and valiant that ever poised the lance or drew the sword Vain would it be to search the page of fen of nobler

victory t was her prayer that he might fall resisting the enemy as it would ic more tolerable to gaze on his nd lifeless corpse than to behold bated and disgraced Stimulated by the encouragement given i lim by his parents and fired with an in- j ense longing to figure in the coming for freedom Leopold decided in ill the ardor of youth to join the ranks of bis hrave countrymen who were rising n every part of the land so eager were hey to meet the common foo On the eve of his departure from the parental he met with his father and mother o receive their benediction It waa a and affecting scene

hile tears of parental love flowed down their furrowed cheeks said they dear and only if thou in defence of thy country our last igh shall be for thee and our latest breath shall bo spent in prayer for thy spirit's everlasting Leopold full of enthusiasm and age affectionately embraced his esteemed parents and that the grievances of liis nation should be redressed and that lie would perish on the or re- turn glory The next morning he prepared to take leave of all ho Held dear Julia a lovely being to whom he had bo came ardently attached presented him with a ring from one of her delicate and beautiful fingers which she Haiti should act as a talisman to guide and protect him in the hour of danger and which look upon amid the din of battle and be reminded of her eternal love and cy She wept with joy at the prospect of Ilis coming back victorious his brow en- circled with the wreath of conquest and falteringly did her quivering beautiful lips pronounce the protestation that if he re- turned not alive her orisons should ascend his behalf and her tears bedew his grave till their souls were united in en At the threshold of his father's house a little group had assembled to take what in the sequel proved to have been a last farewell of the universally beloved old The faithful domestics wept to think that in all they should never behold the face of their respected young master again while his separation from those to whom his very soul was knit presented a scene indescribably painful The affectionate grasp of th parting kindly look ns though they had been the last would have moved a heart steeled by the most rigid stoicism Leopold vowed to his affianced Julia that neither the of the artillery nor the revelry of tho camp ever him to forget her ho clasped in his arms each of his aged parents and manfully stifling his conflicting emotions sprung upon his awaiting and parted In company with a band of Podolia and Ukraine patriots who vengeance on their enemies

night dis- appeared On the day follow ing the riot forces slowly marched towards now at which place they remained about two days and then with hearts full of joy directed their slops to As soon as they approached the city they were unexpectedly attacked by tho enemy un- er with a donation and immediately to the village where they defeated several squadron of the Russian lancers under the same

with the swiftness of an ar- row returned to his troops who mustered about six hundred strong About fifteen minutes after this rence a most bloody contest took place in which the Poles were victorious their numbers having been somewhat increased by files from neighboring places who had herd the noise of the artillery The gle lasted half an hour at the end of which time the whole of the Russian of- men horses guns and were in the possession of the patriots who offered thanks to heaven for their signal The Poles had nothing but small arms while the enemy had two field pieces Thus far the cause of the Poles had flourished and though they were often re- pulsed ever did these true lovers of ty rally their little forces and return to the charge with augmented vigor as their brave spirits were cheered Jay the glorious hope that through their efforts their country might yet be redeemed As it is totally unnecessary in order to continue the history of our hero that we should an account of each

Polish troops therefore entered the lage four abreast An ingress had barely commenced when these ill-fated men were surprised by the roaring of lery in their rear they little thought the foe was approximate and their ishment can ba more easily conceived than described but not a moment was to be lost they immediately wheeled and confronted the adversary whose number was about ten thousand while theirs was only nino hundred Leopold in this final struggle evinced the most undaunted valor and resolved to fulfil his promise that he would either re- turn homo laurelled as a victor or perish on the field of strife It will be proper to mention one instance in which he showed uncommon bravery Five of the Russian lancers attacked him simultaneously two of whom he by hia surprising adroitness laid dead on the spot the three remain ing would doubtless have quickly patched him had it not been for the ly arrival of a friend who through the smoke and dust of battle had perceived the imminent danger of and tened to his one of the lancers was shot and the two that were left fled and escaped In this unequal contest Leopold received three wounds which for- were not so severe as to be tal At the same time the battle ued to rage with unabated fury often were thr Poles repulsed by the fearful su with which they had to con tend -t but the frequent spirit-stirring IAS which burst from their ranks enoh heart with fresh courage and them with renewed energy to return to tht combat The sanguinary conflict lasted several hours but ultimately the nate Poles overwhelmed by numbers were

war When the news reached hi n ol the taking of Warsaw by the Russians it caused hia heart to die as it were in him he was well aware that the lasl ray of hope for the prosperity of hia ing country had now expired As soon as it was ascertained in tria that the Revolutionary war in Poland had terminated in the complete overthrow of every effort her sons had made to the tyrannical enemy the government sued a proclamation commanding ton t all these polish refugees whose liberty had been procured by means of bail should be taken to the Capitols of the several states in which they lived Leopold being one of the number was necessarily bound to obey the arbitrary mandate and Mr Ritter when the painful information was brought him deeply felt for the multiplied of one who had become to him as his own child But he could not act in opposition to the government and might be he found must speedily take be his adopted aon To pold Mr Ritter communicate th sad tidings but to hia family he

unflinching fortitude He warmly ed Mr Ritter for the unbounded paternal kindness he had shown him and said he should ever remember it with feelings of the deepest gratitude The noble Austrian affectionately pressing Leopold's hand declared that he had done no more than it was his duty to do and added you may stay with me two weeks longer and when you depart from under my roof may God guide

she new must bu obeyed to the very letter and it was her belief that every youthful lope she had fondly encouraged was to blasted Frequently Rosana censured herself for having become attached to but it was always a great tion to know that her affections had been placed on no unworthy object His fortunes had made her love him and that love pure and spotless as the snows in her native clime had taken deep root and was never to be eradicated She had been informed by her father that Leopold might remain with him two weeks longer and a thought struck her that a way might be devised by which the impending blow would be averted from her beloved Woman's mind is ever quick at invention in times of emergency and Rosana ished the idea that if her father went to Czernowitz he might possibly be able to give security for Leopold for six months longer and at the expiration of that riod the government would perhaps have issued more favorable orders concerning the Poles and Leopold would be safe am
