THE LATE DUKU OF BKUNSfViCK. The foliowinff interesting trait of the enterprise and militKry tHieiitK of t)m hte Duke of Brtiii�-wick, her Mrtjesiy'ii brotlier, is extracterl from an interestiiifr work just poblislieil liv CnJIinrn, entitled, " Memoirs of the CoUrf of fVesrp/ialia," during Jrrotne Bo(ia(>�rfe's reigii:- " The Cotmiefti beaiMi to be nrwl nf wnr, when they heurdof the cmoltiKion of ll.e arrtristice wliicli preceded the ptace with ytti�fi'ia. By a singular exception in thi� Hrfili!.tice, the Hlixihiiries in the service of Anstriii were not iii'croded. The reaiill tvas that the Diike of Oeig, left to himself with his troops, had the alternutive of inakiiig war on his own Hccount, or of forcing a paSs'siKt; thr6ugh Germany and (foiiig lo England, in Ihe pay of which he was. He naturally adopted the latter expedient, " The Prince is tlie came who was killed at the buttle of Wiiterloo. It a'rrimarkable coincidence, that his troops were placed 'pr�i:tsely opposite to those comtiianded by Jerome, on that 8ang^ina^y day. " He was a nrait of BbtrntfaTt^, �t a CMSmahd-ing'flature ttud martial countenance; pai'tial to the French, speakiiig'tbeir language-frota predilection, and fighting theia like a lion because they had deprived him of the Duchy of Brunswick. The passions of this Prince vnere so veliemeiit, his emotions so stronjf, and his imagination (.0 ardent, that his hair, eye-broivs, nnd beard, became entirely white in twenty-four hours after ihe disaster of the Russians at Jena, and the death of his father. * An experienced wurrior, he preserved great coolness on the field of battlo. Amidst lii.� companions in arms he appeared a privdte soldier: a brown great coat and a cap of the same colour, composed his outward costume. From sleeping on the ground with his troupn, ahariiig their labours, privations, and dangers, he cominuiided a body of heroes; small m number, but formidable in courage and loyalty. " Such was the man who undertook to march with a thousand soldiers from Bohemia co Bremen, and to embark there, travelling over a space of one hundred and fifty leagues, exposed to the armies and fortresnes of his enemies. As this ellter|lri^ing action has never been sufBcieiilly celebrated, 1 shall here retrace some of the circuiiistai.ces. * Leaving Egra immediately aTier the armistice, he descenilrd into the plains of Saxony, 6tole several marches on the regiments which watched him, aiid with astoiiishiiig celerity reached the borders of the Saale. Arrived nl Halle, he took the arms of a company of Westphuliau veterans, ami augmented his troops with some peasants, with which he lined the Hartz mountaint, to secure ao at^ylum against any superior force which might pieseut itself. " General Michaud, Governor of Magdeburg, was welt informed of his proceedings, but being without cavalry, pursuit was inipostible. Having the dispoMl of only the 5lh regiment of Westpha-lian infantry, under the command of the Grand Martial of the Palace, Count de Wellingerode, he he could not annoy the Duke';) march ; besides this newly-formed regiment wat ordered to Hum-burgh. Every one was so far from supposing the Duke of Oels could be the aggressor, that the regiment departed froni itsjilaceof destinatiiin, and marched without tiiking any of the usual precautions in the vicinity uf an enemy. The corps stifely arrived at its second halting place, which was Hal-berstadt ; entered it at ten o'clock in Ilie morning, and remained there to refresh in perfect security. *' The Grand Marshal has been reproached with carelessness ; he certainly was wrong in not being sufficieiiily on his ^^uard. A surprise was improbable, because the gendarmerie were posted in all directions. Unfortunately the Duke of OeU was far from being a novice; he knew that his viewa were seconded by the inhubitHuti., was well a 0 fully aware of the strength, and negligeiice of the tioops against whoii'i he Iniil to contend. S.t that nothing was more nutuml than lo srixe this regiment while on his inarch.   when su'ddenjy the enemy's c&valry, issuing from several streets, put the disarmed infantry to the sword. The Grand Marshal had only li^e to go out �j1F his ludg'tng*, and then only lo be made a prisoner. The alrag-glirrg soldiers dispersed, somvl! re-entereij Mag  biiirg without clulhiii^. 6tbers hid themselves in their iiativi^ villages. The et^uipmenl of this regiment had cost fix hundred thousand frai.lcs; and lint a drum case was savtod.. Al'ier this at}air� the Duke pbrsued the road to Brunswick, taking with htm his prisoiiers, to whom lie r'efu�ed their pArole, iiol from conteii�|>t, bitt hecausie he considere.l u (Jratid Marshal of the Palate, taken from the Court of Westphalia by a partituu, as a reiiivrkable trophy^ . " Whrle tl^ese ewpiits were passing, pieacW with Austria was concluded, anil tht! WeslphaViauA hat-i.iig nottliag In do in Saxoqy, rtrttiriied to Ca^srl. Jeroriie, on hi4 arrival, being �uf�>rmed of the auda-ciuu^mariph bf the Duke uf Oris through his du'-miiiiOikv, sent the atiny which liaif returned .ftjom Safioiiy, Under Itte coiniuaiid hf General K-, against him.
