It was Trio poor negroes Catli messenger before to had in Opportunity to resume his position it a truck him in Trio stomach completely touring out Bis entrails and of course depriving him of life. Tho poor Fellows merry voice was silenced in death. Within in sect Range of Captain Drums Battery a Small Force of Tho enemy perhaps fifty occupied n position that enabled them to annoy is very much and occasionally kill or wound one of Tho inc stationed at Tho guns. Those men Wero undoubtedly Sharp Shu Oters and Wero stretched along for perhaps sixty Yards in a deep taking advantage of every Opportunity that presented , of making their service available to our detriment they would partially Riso up discharge their weapons at us and then quickly resume their lying position. These Fellows had been harrass my us so Long and so fatally tint Goncal shield who commanded the brigade to which my regiment was attached deemed it advisable to dislodge Thorn. For that purpose n detachment of thirty men tinder the command of a lieutenant was sent Forward. Tho lieutenant gallantly my Van cd Wilh his men under a Sharp Fitu proceeding from those occupying Tho ditch. Before to and advanced Forward sixty Yards three of his men were shot dead. Still this did not intimidate him or his men. Onward he pushed a rapidly nearing the enemy. Now lie was within thirty Yanu of them and still they maintained their position.

When the smoke cleared away but Throe of that Gallant band stood upon their feet a Tho remainder with Tho lieutenant were stretched upon Trio blood Damp ground frightful mangled Corpse. Tho three survivors stood bewildered fora moment Ami then recovering themselves speedily rejoined us. We too had our Sharp shooter. Stationed at advantageous position around the Castle and the to Nav mexican that to found the next Day stiff in death with their forehead pierced with the balls bore proof of the accuracy of their aim.

An incident that i witnessed on the 12 a suggests the mentioning of the regiment in order to introduce Tho incident itself. From the Baso of the Hill on which the Castle of Chapultepec stands is a Broad paved Road. Down this Road during the morning a Lionso mounted by an officer was frequently soon to dash furiously. The Tyder was doubtless an Aid de Camp carry my orders from general Bravo stationed at the foot of the Hill. He was n very showy Chap and therefore i wondered he escaped our rifles. His horse was richly and Sho wily Ca put ironed and he himself a dressed in u gorgeous uniform a in Short be was As Gay a a is a Peacock a a Tho eccentric aral Gallant Captain Fairchild remarked at the Lime. I had my eyes intently fixed upon him Trio last Tomeil saw him dashing Down the Road expecting Overy moment to so him full from his but he escaped. Then i awaited his return. Dishing in the Road repeatedly done. He had pro Lection which serves to show the effective Ness of our artillery particularly the Battery commanded by Captain drum. Late in tin afternoon a party of lire enemy wed up cd in bringing a heavy piece of Artil in Trio Castlo to Tho support of troop at the foot of the Hill. The. Succeeded in gelling it Boul half Way Down losing however so far. Two or three Foll hair men in the attempt by Tho deadly aim of our riflemen a when Captain Drums attention was Calliel to the Jiroch Eedeng. A a ill see if i can to pit a Stop to that a was i Cool remark which was presently followed by Tho a Leep Lono the Jzidor of one of iii heavy preces of artillery. The effect was astonishing a the shot front i gun striking Tho enemy Scannon and killing three or four of the men. The rest immediately retreated to the Castle. No is Nilar attempt was by Turem that Day. Hundred of incidents occurred during the a Lay a too Many to in Dorako to relate in this article. The firing on both sides continued As i said before All Day a there was no cessation whatever until a night threw her Nanle Over the Earth a then comparative quiet once Intro reigned.
