The people were then told, that the AVENGING HOUR WILL COME AT LAST. They are now told, that tn less than a year, THOSE WHO AKE CONSCIENTIOUSLY OPPOSED TO THE BASK, WILL NOT DAUB TO WHISPER A SYLLABLE AGAINST IT.

We call upon those who feel as we feel, and who are ready to act upon the same principles, lo unite under the same hnnner. If there are now in the democratic those who are operated upon by timidity, who will not set at defiance corruption, and who arc not ready to stand or fall defending their liberties, we say leave us go to the enemy at once. We want none in our ranks, but such as are now ready to take their posts, and stand by them. This is no time for paltering.

When we arrived at the piquet station where the alarm was given, a portion of the com- pany were placed under Lieut Jervey, to strengthen the sentinels, and en his return we scoured the adjoining wood under Capt.
