Leicester Journal And Midland Counties General Advertiser (Newspaper) - November 17, 1854, Leicester, East Midlands Be ice Ster journal Friday november 17, 1854 literary notices. Of tactical suggestions foe a National system of anneal agricultural statistics by m. Buckland Gloucester. London Ridgway an regarding As we do the subject of Agricol tubal statistics As one of tile most important questions o our political Economy at the present time we Are i sex. O Cive All possible publicity to any attempt which May he made to show its important or to developed a plan for successfully obtaining them. Of is therefore with great Jiu insure we Call the attention of our agricultural Laders to tile present Jam he or because we agree As a specimen of m iss Tatham a Lyric composition we give the following on Quot peace and War. Quot of War is like the lightning Lance which Burns arid blights wherever it glance in darkness sheathed and launched in Thunder a thing of terror death and wonder though he whose Eye its passage guides still on its awful Pinion rides. To tile present pamphlet not because it is All that it should he or because we agree with All that it contains but because it is a contribution towards Tho solution of a vexed question hut n question at the same time deeply affecting our National interest. Tho author is a practical Man and writes mum subjects with which lie is perfectly familiar a circumstance which will give additional weight to his arguments and suggestions. Tho pamphlet sets out with some judicious observations on the advantages of agricultural statistics. Under this head the writer remarks to no class of the Community would a perfect system of Agri cultural statistics prove of equal value to that which the Farmer would derive from it. And to none should it tic More acceptable for by it he would la place d on an Equality with foreigners and British merchants who. By National statistics and by private Means obtain this information for their own exclusive advantage All acquaintance with the Supply Ana consumption of Tho country would lie knows relieve his in Tuce from the violent fluctuations Iii Price to which it is Suhow Tod by the want of proper information and at Tho same time Check tile frequent improvident sales to or purchases from foreigners made under a stall of ignorance of our Home stocks and necessities. He would possess with it the Laager of defying partial and deceptive Rei Kirts which an often floated to unduly influence the markets by an Appeal to the most authentic sources Tor their reputation and would Anim ally ascertain la fore determining upon his Spring Cern culture the produce Iii which the greatest deficiency existed in Ilu previous year As Well As knowing when and what to Sci Ami Quot Hen and u hat to refrain from Selling. End the head of requisites for obtaining satisfactory , lie says a Hie annual produce of the country for he purposes of food Carnot to satisfactorily ascertained inf by combining tie area grown the yield per acre and the w eight Lur Bushel neither can its full Means of supplying the Peoples wants be arrived at without knowing year by year the stocks of old com still remaining in the growers this will be generally agreed with. Ile further observes a the extreme variations to which our climate is subject produce greater fluctuations in the weight of its Cereal produce relatively to its bulk than will tier lips vie found in any other Quarter of the Globe and thus it May happen that with an arca of wheat grown in one year much in excess of the average there May still exist a deficiency in the aright of food produced which is by no Means by the additional area under crop. Similar results May follow upon a bulk exceeding the average or vice terse in either Case. After some observations on the fittest time for the collect Tiou of statistics or. Buckland arrives at the conclusion that the cud of August is on All grounds the most eligible for this he gives the following reasons the last week in August and the 31st of that month appear to be the Only week and almost the Only Day which in the variety of seasons and Cliniak is prevailing in the United kingdoms would be adapted for the purpose of estimating the Cereal produce whilst at this Jeriod there will be found in the enu mention of a a live Stock pre caring for Slaughter a Aud to be immediately converted into food fewer Young of cows sheep and pigs than at almost any other season of the year. As the result Loo of there timing Only two immovable fairs in the United kingdoms on the 31st of August and Only ten on the preceding Day both the former Aud nearly All the latter being in Ireland fewer transfers will be taking place of adult live Stock on tins Day than on any other consequently in the enumeration of them under the two classes of Stock feeding for Slaughter and stores a very few will come under the first which Are not of full age for the purpose and the Stock Holder will at this period better than at any other know the number intended to be reserved As stores. The average weight of the Stock a feeding for Slaughter will not therefore to materially interfered with by the introduction of either calves lambs or porkers and As the main object of the enquiry is that of ascertaining the Quantity both of Cereal and animal food either produced or prepares throughout the kingdoms it seems the fittest time and Date to arrive at the desired accuracy for both Puri Koscs. Some idea May vie also formed of the next year s probable clip of Wool from the number of store sheep existing at this Date and the weight of animal food preparing May be tolerably surmised on the assumed average of 7 cwt. Or head of homed cattle 3f cwt. Per head of sheep and it cwt. Per head of pigs at this season. Or. Buckland strongly objects to giving the machinery of the poor Law administration too much prominence in tie Collet Tion of statistics. His principal exception is on the ground of the feeling which it appears inevitably to generate that the Farmers private coned us will thereby become the Staple of Village gossip. The next chapter is a review of the cd Prim cuts made last year by sir j. My a Sham and or. Hawley in the counties of Norfolk and Hants Aud by or. Maxwell in Scotland in which the poor Law officers were largely employed and the conclusion from which is that a system less repugnant to the Farmers feeling must he devised if Success is hoped for but that with such a system the obtaining of the desired returns will not be a matter of Insun Merable difficulty. The of conciliating the Farmers natural prejudices is fully recognised Iii the following paragraph a a important feature then in its outset to avoid endangering successful action and to give it acceptable reception will to to denude the system of everything which May be distasteful to the Farmer Aud to invest it with features adapted to encounter Anil us due his prejudices by carrying conviction w till the plan that they May la safely Abai Idom a. These prejudices generally arise from Well or ill founded apprehensions that lie would lie committing a kind of self immolation to put the government Tho landlord the s die Tor or the Neighbour Iii Possession of information whereby either they or their friends May become acquainted with his private affairs or by which May tx1 shadowed Forth his capital his Stock his profits or his course of cropping conceiving that such disclosures May operate to his disadvantage he is quite alive to the fact that although but Little acquaintance with them Tan be Graneti from the returns of a single year yet much May be collected by a comparison of successive j cars Aud Many exposures made and inferences deduced in quartos whence lies might vie seriously prejudiced. Farmers do not usually p xes their capital or invest their profits in Bills or in Banks but in improvements of their Laud accumulation of old Coni or additions to their live Stock any comparison of which from year to year by the exhibition of their increase or diminution would furnish a tolerably Plain Index of the upward or downward Progress of any individual to the inquisitive or interested investigator. Their apprehensions of distraint for rent on the one hand or Advance of rout on the other Are therefore not altogether groundless and their fears must be dissipated and Confidence secured Lief re they will truthfully and without timidity Render the information which cannot be dispensed with or to fully obtained without their assistance. Or. Buck land s plan Winch he gives at the end of his Book is no doubt sound in principle Aud is the Only system which can Ever be effectively worked. Differences of opinion will of course arise upon the details of the scheme but its main features that the returns should be furnished by the Farmers themselves and nut be made Public to local functionaries Trust he adopted in any Plau which shall he ultimately successful.

My connexion with the Sabbath movement in France in 1853-4, by Charles Cochrane. London Holliston Aud Storeman. Nothing has usually struck English travellers in France with More Surprise than the desecration of the Sabbath which obtains throughout the country but More especially in pal is and other Large cities. To one accustomed to the stillness and repose of an English Sabbath Aud especially As it is generally observed in the Rural districts the change is most extraordinary and it is difficult for him to believe that he is among a people who acknowledge allegiance to the same christianity As that which so extensively pervades All the institutions of his Mother country. Independently of its religious necessity the advantages of the weekly rest which our English sunday affords to the working classes in both an intellectual and physical Point of View arc incalculable. Medical science has Long ago demonstrated that incessant toil is incompatible with health Aud eminent psychologists arc of opinion that a suspension of the Ordinary routine of thought is Audi Sucu Sable to the preservation in their integrity of the mental Powers alike therefore to him who lives by the sweat of his brow and him whose sustenance is procured by the working of his brain is the preservation of the Sabbath rest intact of the highest importance. We Are Happy to learn that it has begun to be recognised by our friends Aud Neighbours across the Channel Aud that Active efforts Are being made to put Down sunday trading. Or. Charles Cochrane the inventor of our a a Street orderly system and whose name has been Long mixed up with charitable and philanthropic enterprises api it ears to have taken a prominent part in the exertions of the societies which have been instituted to promote a a a better Observance of the lord s Day a and in the pamphlet Lief re us gives an interesting narrative of their efforts Aud the Success with which they have been crowned. The appalling results to the prevalent Sabbath desecration in France Are thus described a this indifference to the Sabbath is Tho country a greatest at Littion.

Siege of Sebastopol. Attack on a la Klava. Official accounts have been received of this unfortunate affair which were published in an extraordinary Gazette on sunday. We sub join them to extensor. They Are from Inird Raglan enclosing the reports furnish cd to himself by the commanders engaged a before Sebastopol oct. 28,1854. My lord Duke a i have the honour to acquaint your Grace that the enemy attacked Tho position in the front of Bulak lava at an Early hour on the morning of the 25th instant. The Low Range of Heights that runs across the Plain at the Bottom of which the town is placed was protected by four Small redoubts hastily constructed. Three of these had guns in them and on a higher Hill in front of the Village of Camara in Advance of our right flank was established a work of somewhat More importance. These several redoubts were garrisoned by turkish troops no other Force being at my disposal for their occupation. Tho u3rd highlanders was the Only British regiment in the Plain with the exception of a part of a battalion of detachments composed of weakly men and a Battery of artillery belonging to the third division and on the Heights behind our right were placed the marines obligingly by Deal from the Fleet by vice Admiral Dundas. All these including the turkish troops were under the immediate orders of major general sir Colin Campbell whom i had taken from the first division with the 93rd. As soon As i was apprised of this movement of the enemy i Felt compelled to withdraw from before Sebastopol the first and fourth divisions commanded by lieutenant generals his Royal highness the Duke of Cambridge and the Hon sir George Cathcart and bring them Down into the Plain and general can Robert subsequently reinforced these troops with the first division of French infantry and the Chasseur do a Frique. The enemy commenced their operation by attacking Tho work on our Side of the Village of Camara and Atter very Little resistance carried it. They likewise got Possession of three others in contiguity to it being opt posed Only in one and that but for a very Short space of time. The furthest of the three they did not retain but the immediate abandonment of the others enabled them to take Possession of the guns in them amounting in the whole to seven. Those in the three lesser forts were spiked by the one English artillery who was in each. The russian cavalry at once advanced supported by artillery in very great strength. One portion of them assailed the front and right flank of the 93rd, and were instantly driven Back by the vigorous and steady fire of that distinguished regiment under lieutenant colonel Ainslie l1l� ret lion Xvi Lux now Tii Towl Fri wants liar Mimi Fco of Barker and the officers of the Field batteries under his orders who made most excellent practice against the russian cavalry and artilery while within Range.

My lord Duke a i have nothing particular to report to your Grace respecting Tho operations of the siege since i wrote to you on the 22nd instant. The fire has been somewhat less constant and our casualties have been fewer prices on Tho Sabbath. The tradespeople Are till in aware of this and feel just so much interest in their customers As will Lead to their waking treat Money by them. Of course they never think of consulting the wishes and wants of Piersons in their employ nor whether they need the Leisure or have a desire to go to Church they treat others As they Are and have been treated and think that All Are indifferent to a Blat la Observance and Public worship As they Are greatly accustomed to be so. The thousands and tens of thousands of Young men and woman employed in the shul Are not Uno servant of the conduct of their employers Anil of the examples set them or Ioudif Ferent to the treatment w hich they receive. The service rendered for the value received is reduced to the minimum allowable and their whole Aud sole calculation is exclusively selfish. They rarely leave the shops Aud magazines on tile sunday until four or five Iii the afternoon Aud from habit As Well As physical exhaust in sock excitement of an injurious and dangerous kind. How fearful must be their ignorance with regard to their moral and religious duties. The wound Aud the plague spot become Darker and deeper As we descend the scale of society. The working classes appear to look to and expect no other support or Protection except from their physical strength and combination their sense of responsibility to god Aud their Hopes in a merciful Providence Are of tile feeble St kind they firmly believe that All classes of society arc arrayed against them and Itiat All authority is design a for Hie Puri ise of oppressing them. They meet wit i much suspicion and but Little sympathy and the bargains made with them Are rigid and severe. They regard All above them w Ith envy and mistrust Aud in return Aru looked upon As the fit and ready tools of anarchy and rebellion. It is highly satisfactory to find that the protestants and roman catholics of Paris have United in the endeavour to put a Stop to sunday trading which they can do without any dereliction from their distinctive principles. Nearly All the most influential tradesmen of Paris now close their shops on the sunday and there is every Prosi sect that Success will attend the movement generally. The Paris societies Are however in want of funds to carry on their exertions Aud m r. Cochrane earnestly appeals to the British Public for their assistance. Loss of the forerunner Steamer.

At the same time masses of infantry were collected in rear of the redoubts while a Force of 5000 cavalry 1000 cossacks and 4000 Hussars formed on a level space on their flanks. The sight of the enemy in such overpowering Force holding the batteries four in num Beraud protected on their flanks by sock a mass of cavalry instantly checked the Advance of our troops.

General the Earl of Lucan the Opportunity of inflicting upon them a most signal defeat. The ground was very unfavourable for the attack of our dragoons but no obstacle was sufficient to Click their a i Vance and they charged into the russian column which soon sought safety in flight although far Superior in numbers. The charge of this brigade was one of the most successful i Ever w witnessed was never for a moment doubt fill and is in the highest degree creditable to brigadier general Scarlett and the officers and men engaged in it. As the enemy withdrew from the ground which they had momentarily occupied i directed the cavalry supported by the fourth division under Lieut. General sir George Cathcart to move Forward and take advantage of any Opportunity to regain the Heights and not having been Able to accomplish this immediately and it appearing that an attempt was making to remove the captured guns the Earl of Lucan was desired to Advance rapidly follow the enemy in their Retreat and try to prevent them from effecting their objects. The russians had time to re form on their own ground with artillery in front and upon their flanks. Front some misconception of the instruction to Advance the lieutenant general considered that he was in and to attack at All hazards and he accordingly ordered major general the Earl of Cardigan to move Forward with the Light brigade. This order Xmas obeyed in the most spirited and Gallant manner. Lord Cardigan charged with the utmost Vigour attacking a Battery which was firing upon the advancing squadrons and having passed beyond it engaged the russian cavalry in its rear hut there his troops were assailed by artillery and infantry As Well As cavalry and necessarily retired after Haring com netted much havoc upon the enemy. They effected this movement without haste or confusion but the logs they have sustained Lias i deeply lament been very severe in officers Mon and horses Only counterbalanced by the Brit Bailey of the attack and the gallantry order and discipline which distinguished it forming a striking contrast to the enemy a cavalry which had previously been engaged with the heavy brigade. The Chasseur do Frique advanced of our left Ami gallantly charged a russian Battery which checked its fire for a time and thus rendered the British cavalry an essential service. I have the honour to enclose copies of sir Colin Maui belts and the Earl of Lucanus reports. I beg to draw your graces attention to the terms in w hich sir Colin Campbell Speaks of Lieut. Colonel Ainslie of the 93rd, and Captain Barker of the Royal artillery and also to the Praise bestowed by the Earl of Lucan on major general the Earl of Cardigan and brigadier general Scarlett which they most fully deserve. Tile Earl of Lucan not having sent me the names of the other officers who distinguished themselves i propose to Forward them by the next Opportunity Lite enemy made no further movement in Advance and at the close of the Day the brigade of guards of the 1st division and the 4th division returned to their original Encampment As did the French troops with the exception of one brigade of the 1st division which general Canrobert was so Good As to leave in support of sir Colin Campbell. The remaining regiments of the Highland brigade also remained in the Valley. The 4th division had advanced dose to the Heights and sir George Cathcart caused one of the redoubts to be re occupied by the turks affording them his support and he availed himself of the Opportunity to assist with his riflemen in silencing two of the enemy a guns. The Means of defending the extensive position which had been occupied by the turkish troops in the morning having proved wholly inadequate i deemed it necessary in concurrence with general Canrobert to withdraw from the lower Range of Heights Aud to concentrate our Force which will be increased by a considerable body of seamen to be landed from the ships under the authority of Admiral Dundas immediately in front of the narrow Valley leading into Balaklava and upon the precipitous Heights on our right thus affording a narrower line of defence. I have soc., Raglan his Grace the Duke of Newcastle amp a. Enclosures Balaklava oct. 27, 1854. My lord a i have the honour to re Piort that the cavalry division under my command was seriously engaged with Tho enemy on the 25th instant during the greater part of which Day it was under a heavy tire that it made a most triumphant charge against a very Superior number of the enemy a cavalry and an attack upon batteries which for daring and gallantry could not be exceeded. The loss however in officers men and horses has been most severe. From half past six in the morning when the horse artillery first Oigt a cd fire till the enemy had possessed itself of All the different forts the cavalry constantly changing their positions continued giving All the sup dirt they could to the turkish troops though much excised to the fire of heavy guns Aud riflemen when they took Post on the left of the see Iii line of redoubts by an order from your lordship. The heavy brigade had soon to return to the support of the Troolis defending Balaklava and was fortunate enough in being at hand when a Large Force of russian cavalry Xmas descending the Hill i immediately ordered brigadier general Scarlett to attack with the scots Greys and Enniskillen dragoons and had his attack supported in second line by the 5th Dragoon guards and by a flank attack of the 4th Dragoon guards. Under every disadvantage of ground these eight Small squadrons succeeded in defeating and dispersing a body of cavalry estimated at three times their number and More. The heavy brigade having now joined the Light brigade the division took up a position with a View of supporting in attack upon the Heights when being instructed to make a rapid Advance to our front to prevent the enemy carrying the guns lost by the turkish troops in the morning i ordered the Light brigade to Advance in two lines and supported them with the heavy brigade. This attack of the Light cavalry was very Brilliant and daring exposed to a tire from heavy batteries on their front and two flanks they advanced unchecked until they reached the batteries of the enemy Aud cleared them of their gunners and Only retired when they found themselves engaged with a very Superior Force of cavalry Iii the rear. Major general the Earl of Cardigan led this attack Iii the most Gallant and intrepid manner and his lordship has expressed himself to me us admiring in the highest degree the courage and Zeal of every officer non commissioned officer Aud Man that assisted. The heavy brigade advanced to the support of tile attack under a very galling tire from the batteries Aud infantry in a redoubt and acted with most perfect steadiness and Iii a Maimer to deserve All Praise. The losses my lord it grieves me to state have been very great indeed and i fear will be much Felt by your lordship. I cannot too strongly recommend to your lordship the two general officers commanding the brigades All the officers in command of regiments As also the divisional and brigade stalls indeed the conduct of every individual of every rank i feel to be deserving of my entire Praise and i Hope of your lordships approbation. The conduct of the Royal horse artillery troop first under the command of Captain Maude and after that officer Xmas severely wounded of Captain Rilia Espear was most meritorious Aud praiseworthy. I received from those officers every possible assistance during the time they respectively commanded. I have Ste., Lucan lieutenant general commanding cavalry division. His excellency the commander of the forces Ste. Camp Battery no. 4, Balaklava oct. 27. Sir a i have the honour to inform you that on the morning of the 25th inst., about seven of clock the russian Force which has been As i already req Xii Ted for some time amongst the Hills on our right front debauched into the open ground in front of the redoubts nos. I 2, and 3, which xxx arc occupied by turkish infantry and artillery and armed with seven 12-Pounders Iron. The enemy a Force consisted of 18 or 19 battalions of infantry from 30 to 40 guns Aud a Large body of cavalry. The attack Xmas made against no. I redoubt by a Cloud of skirmishers supported by eight battalions of infantry Aud 16 guns. The turkish troops in no. I persisted As Long As they could and then retired and they suffered considerable loss in their Retreat. To us attack was Quot followed by the successive abandonment of nos. 2, 3, and 4 redoubts by the turks As Exvell As of the other posts held by them in our front. The guns How Ever in nos. 2, 3, and i were spiked. The garrisons of these redoubts retired and some of them formed on the right and some on the left flank of the 93rd highlanders which was posted in front of no. 4 Battery and the Village of a Tichio. When the enemy had taken Possession of these redoubts their artillery advanced with a Large mass of cavalry and the guns ranged to the 93 highlanders which w Ith i90 invalids under Lieut. Colonel Daveney in support occupied very insufficiently from the smallness of their numbers the slightly rising ground in front of no 4 lottery. As i found that round shot and Shell began to cause some casualties among the 93rd highlanders and the turkish battalions on their right and left flank i made them retire a few paces behind the Crest of the Hill. During this period our batteries on the Hills manned by the Loyal Marine artillery and the Royal marines made most excellent practice on the enemy a cavalry which came Over Tho Hill ground in front. One body of them amounting to about 400 men turned to their left separating themselves rom Biose who attacked lord Lucanus division Aud c Large the 93rd highlanders who immediately advanced to Tho Crest of the Hill Aud opened their fire which forced he russian cavalry to give Way and turn to their left i j Wile an a a a tempt to turn the right flank of the 93rd, having observed the flight of the turks who were placed Here upon which the grenadiers of the 93rd, under Captain Ross Yvere wheeled up to their right and fired on the enemy which Mam curve completely discomfited them. During the rest of the Day the troops under my command received no further molestation from the russians. I beg to Call lord Raglan a attention to the gallantry and eagerness of the 93rd highlanders under Lieut. Colonel Amalia of which probably his lordship was an Eye witness As Well a the if opt division and some guns of the Light division and supported by the brigade of guards and by several regiments of the 4th division and in the rear by the French division commanded by general Bosquet who was most eager in his desire to give him every Aid. I have the honour to transmit a copy of sir de Lacy Evans a report which i am sure your Grace will read with the highest satisfaction and i beg to recommend the officers whom to particularly mentions to your Protection. Captain Bayley of tile 30th, and Captain at Lierley of the same regiment and Lieut. Conolly of the 49th, All of whom Are severely wounded appear to have greatly distinguished themselves. I cannot speak in too High terms of the manner in which Lieut. General sir de Lacy Evans met this very serious attack. I had not the Good Fortune to witness it myself being occupied in front of Balaklava at the time it commenced and having Only reached his position As the affair ceased but i am certain i speak the sentiments of All who witnessed the operation in saying that nothing could have been better managed and that the greatest credit is due to the lieutenant general whose services and conduct i have before had to bring under your graces notice. I enclose the return of the losses the has sustained since the 22nd. I have &c., Raglan. His Grace the Duke of Newcastle a. 2nd division Heights of the Chemay oct. 27,1854. My lord a yesterday tile enemy attacked this division with several columns of infantry supported by artillery. Their cavalry did not come to the front. Their masses covered by Large bodies of skirmishers advanced with much apparent Confidence. The division immediately formed line in Advance of our Camp the left under major general Pennefather the right under brigadier general Adams. Lieut. Colonel Fitzmayer and the captains of batteries Turner and Yates promptly posted their guns and opened fire upon the enemy. Immediately on the cannonade being heard the Duke of Cambridge brought up to our support the brigade of guards under major general Bentinck with a Battery under Lieut. Colonel Dacres. His Royal highness took lost in Advance of our right to secure that flank and rendered me throughout Tho most effective and important assistance. General Bosquet with similar promptitude and from a greater distance approached our position with five French battalions. Sir g. Cathcart hastened to us with a regiment of rifles Aud sir g. Broxon pushed Forward two guns in to operation by our left. Tile enemy came on at first rapidly assisted by their guns on the Mound Hill. Our Picquett then chiefly of the 49th, and 30tli regiments resisted them with very remarkable determination and firmness. Lieutenant co Fily of the 49th, greatly distinguished himself As did Captain Bayley of the 30th, and Captain at Lierley All of whom i regret to say were severely wounded. Serjeant Sullivan also displayed at this Point great bravery. In the meantime our 18 guns in position including those of the first division were served with the utmost Energy. In half an hour they forced the enemy a artillery to abandon the Field. Our batteries were then directed Vith equal accuracy and Vigour upon the enemy a columns which exposed also to the close fire of our add Aneed infantry soon fell in the greatest disorder and flight. They were then literally chased by Tho 30th and 95th regiments Over the ridges and Down towards the head of the Hay. So eager a Xis the Pursuit that it was with difficulty major general Penn father eventually effected the recall of our men. These regiments and the Picquett Yvere led gallantly by major a cleverer major Champion major evian and major Hume. They were similarly pursued further towards our right by four companies of the 41st, led gallantly by Lieut. Colonel the Hon. I. Herbert . The 47th also contributed. The 55th were held in Reserve. Above 80 prisoners fell into our hands and about 130 of the enemy a dead were left Xvi thin or near our position. It is computed that their total loss could scarcely be less than 600. Our loss i am sorry to say has been above 80, of whom 12 killed and 5 officers wounded. I ant Happy to say homies Are entertained that lieutenant Conolly xviii recover hut is wound is dangerous. I will have the honour of transmitting to your lordship a list of officers noncommissioned officers Ami privates whose conduct attracted special notice.

By the Herald special correspondent. Description of Balaklava. Balaklava is a Little Harbour which is literally almost completely land locked for its Only outlet to the sea is on the Vest by a Long winding Channel not 50 Yards Broad the sides of a Vicli arc formed by Steep Rocky Hills rising up almost straight from the Eva term a Edge to the height of 800 or 1200 feet. The length of the Harbour is about three quarters of a mile Long by 250 Yards vide and both sides to the North and South Are completely shut in by the Chain of Hills before mentioned. A breach Iii these Hills to the East forms a Steep Valley by which Road Only is the Harbour accessible on the land Side. This Valley gradually extends and opens into an extensive Plain about three Miles Long and a mile and a half Broad which is hounded on the East by a line of Hills along the top of which runs the main South Road to . In the Harbour of Balaklava some too or 120 of our finest steam and sailing transport vessels lie at Anchor with two or three ships of War two of the latter the Diamond 26, and the us Asp 14�?Are moored at the Lipper end of the Harbour with their broadsides commanding the Valley. Besides these transports which contain All our supplies for the next six weeks the general Hospital Vith the commissariat ordnance and ammunition depots Are formed in the Village so that the Protection of Balaklava both As a place of present use and future necessity became a matter of vital importance. For this Pur lose the Steep Hills on each Side of the Valley at the cast end were strengthened Vith heavy earthworks defended by batteries of artillery. Several High detached Hills commanding the Plain beyond tile Valley were also surmounted Vith Strong batteries and the Plain itself occupied by a numerous body of turks about o Kim men Vith the 93rd highlanders All our cavalry three held batteries Aud Tiro batteries of horse artillery. The Plain i have said Xmas in funded on the East by the Hills Aud High Road a Vicli leads to Sebastopol from the South. The peculiarly rough and Hilly nature of the country makes this Road the Only practical route to the russian stronghold and from it can lie obtained a most commanding View and position Over n Valley still More extensive on the other Side. Up this Valley before it reaches the Heights the Road to Sebastopol winds. From this Point an attack has been often threatened and Long expected. To Render our ii Sittou yet stronger All the higher parts of the Road a Vicli stretches from the Plain of ii Baklava to Tho Centre of our entrenched Camp at Sebastopol a distance of about four Miles Xmas occupied and a regular series of redoubts and Steep breastworks thrown up along it. All these latter fur about two Miles to the South Aud right of our position were held by the turks those to tile North on our extreme left by the French. Ii Baklava was thus defended by Throe lines�?1st, the Chain of redoubts along the Road held by the turks 2nd, by the cavalry Aud infantry in the Plain behind Aud 3rd, by the batteries on the Heights Over the Harbour held by 1500 marines Aud too of our regular infantry. Cowardice of the turks. My last letter informed you that a Lindy of russian troops had made their appearance in the Valley to the East of the Road to Sebastopol and threatening the extreme right of the turkish entrenched position. This was the a mint whence the attack Xmas Chi it cited and a Fexy Days ago a kind of descent was made though now As ii appears More for the purpose of the grow and than any serious attack. Iii their reconnaissance some 30 or 49 of the enemy were killed hut they evidently ascertained the nature of our position and also the important fact that the whole of our fortifications on the right of Bulak lava Verc defended by the turks. At that time Only 12,000 men showed and Only 400 or 500 skirmishers advanced. This morning however october 25at about six or seven of clock an unusual Force of skirmishers was discovered on the brow of a Hill about 1200 Yards from the turkish redoubts. Not much notice was taken of the fact until it Siut half past eight Evhen the skirmishers commenced advancing and at the same time the dense masses of a regular cavalry infantry and artillery begun to show from under cover of a slope facing the lines of our turkish allies. The instant these men they were comparatively new levies and Many of them old and worn out discovered for certain that it was the enemy advancing and advancing about 40,000 Strong a panic seized them an Eye witness in one of the batteries informed me that they instantly seemed to lose All control Over themselves hurrying to and fro in the most pitiable disorder. Their artillery which was loaded Xmas levelled at random in a general Volley at the foe. Nearly All the pieces Yvere pointed too Low and struck the Earth before the russian troops. No attempt Xmas made to improve the Range the guns were merely loaded and fired Quick and that Xmas All. 5\ r the mischief they did they might As Well have been pointed in the air. The enemy meanwhile had halted the great body of their forces on the brow of the Hill and getting their artillery into position opened fire upon the redoubts. At the same time their skirmishers kept moving up the Hill steadily supported at a Little distance by three bodies of infantry about 10,000 Strong in ally marching in close column. The latter afforded splendid Marks for the turkish guns if the miserable slaves had Only possessed the courage to have used them pro Mierly. Rut even their semblance of valour deserted them at the sound of the russian artillery. Their gunners in their anxiety for shelter forgot to Load or when loaded forgot to Point their artillery. Num tiers slunk out of the redoubts and fairly took to their heels. The enemy Yvere now about 500 Yards from their entrenchments for the Way up to them was Steep and they could move but slow. The Battle. After giving an account of the movements of the English troops on hearing the sound of the Cannon and the preliminary arrange men a the letter proceeds a unfortunately before these arrangements bad All been completed the turks Gay c Vay. I he enemy a skirmishers had been advancing steadily Toxvard the redoubts without firing a shot. As they approached within too Yards a dropping skirmishing tire Xmas opened with however but Little effect on the turks beyond increasing their panic. The men fast began to desert their batteries and before the skirmishers were within 60 Yards not a Turk remained behind. Many of them even threw Down their to facilitate their flight Down the Hill and left their Cannon in spiked and in some cases even loaded. The instant Ute it was now ten of clock. The interest and excitement of the contest had much diminished the cannonade Xmas very hot but doing Little mischief. The infantry on both sides were entirely out of Range but standing to their All this time however the russians were preparing to push their advantages by a grand attack on what had been our Centre though it Xmas now our extreme left i mean the position where the Light brigade of cavalry were posted on our flank on the High Road to Sebastopol. A Strong Force of artillery was under cover of a gentle slope moved Down into the Valley on the East of the Road and quite unexpectedly opened a heavy fire on the flank of the Light cavalry which covered our right unfortunately the mass of horsemen were close in Range and the fire soon began to Tell. And now a step which by some has been held to be injudicious Xmas taken on our part in Winch our Light cavalry fell into a regular trap a Vicli Xmas Laid for them by the enemy. Lord Lucan instead of drawing the Light cavalry under cover of the Hill when the artillery opened fire imprudently ordered them to charge the guns. The Lith Hussars and 13th Light dragoons formed line supported by the 4th dragoons and 8th Hussars. The whole mass moved off at a Canter in splendid style and descended a slope into the Valley charged up it to where the batteries were posted. The appearance of the double Fine As it dashed along almost justified the expectations which were formed of its Success. Horses and men seemed to Fly under the influence of a wild excitement which appeared irresistible. Before they had gone half Vay up the Valley the scene underwent a lamentable alteration. When within 1200 Yard the batteries commenced firing with a Range so True that each shot ploughed into the ranks with fearful effect yet still the men went Forward gallantly though the leading ranks each moment grew thinner and thinner. To add to the difficulties of our troops the ground became very rough and tile Valley narrow As it approached the slope on which the guns were placed. This latter obstacle soon affected their movements to such an extent that it became impossible to keep a line and the men Yvere compelled to break up and Advance in sections of tens Aud twelves. All this time however they never slackened or faltered but pushed rapidly on the batteries lire becoming More Aud More deadly every minute. They Yvere now within 400 or 500 Yards of the guns Aud in a minute or so More would have been right among them when suddenly As if by magic three or four fresh batteries a Vicli had a hitherto been concealed commenced a tremendous fire upon their flanks. The Shock of the discharges was irresistible men and horses rolled Over on every Side but still our men went on and sacred the russian artillerymen by whom the guns were served but seeing then a russian line four deep beyond them Anil finding the impossibility of making head the order was Given to retire. The men fell Back with the utmost precision and regularity leaving however a Large number of killed and Vou filed on the ground which of course under such a tremendous fire they were unable to bring away. While this Hail been going on the russian cavalry quilted their position near the redoubts and crossing the High Road dashed Down the sides of Tho Valley taking the remnants of the Light brigade in flank. The russian regiments were the Lith and 12th Hussars each 1500 Strong Vith a body of 1000 regular Cossack cavalry yet As the russian batteries ceased firing As to Weir own cavalry attacked they gallantly prepared for the unequal contest and to Retreat As they fought. The cossacks poured Down the Valley spread ont and attacked them in All Points. Tile Hussars followed in regular line and Vith the Mere weight of their charge bore Down for a time All the resistance of our Gallant Light cavalry. But it was Only for a time twice our Hussars and dragoons rallied and dashing full at their opponents bore them Back in turn though outnumbered ten to one. It was not until an attempt was made to surround them and Cut off their Retreat a attempt which was very near being successful that our men galloped across the High Road to the shelter of our line. The enemy followed close in Pursuit so close indeed that the whole mass inured Down into the Plain like a huge dark Avalanche with a noise that seemed to Shuke the very Earth. Our brigade of heavy cavalry was in the meantime advancing to extricate the Light but seeing the powerful mass of russian troopers who swarmed in lines across the Heights and main Road paused and Drexy up. The russians also seeing a fresh body of cavalry sup ported by infantry Aud batteries halted too apparently a waiting for instructions. The Light cavalry availed itself of the Opportunity to re form its shattered ranks under cover of the columns of the infantry. For full five minutes both forces then stood on either Side without making a movement or firing a shot for it was a matter of grave uncertainty Hov far our heavy cavalry so largely outnumbered would be successful Iii attacking an enemy already in Possession of the Heights. Suddenly the russians executed an extraordinary manoeuvre the object of which up to the present moment we Are at a loss to comprehend. The 12th regiment of Hussars with part of the cossacks descended the Heights into the Plain Aud advanced towards our heavy cavalry while the Lith with the remainder As if out of bravado moved slowly along the front of our infantry line towards the right of our position. For a moment no one could understand the movement. The infantry Rose As one brigade of cavalry approached but kept their line As they showed no intention of closing. Not so the other body who cantered Down the Hill straight where our heavy cavalry remained waiting orders. As they came nearer their intention to attack was evident. In an instant the Bugle sounded the Advance for our men they moved Forward at a Canter and As they approached the enemy and began to ascend the Hill the Cater merged into a charge and the Pace Xmas terrific. The 17th lancers and scots Greys led the 1st Royal dragoons and 6th Enniskillen thundered after in support. For a moment it was a glorious sight. The glittering helmets and weapons and varied uniforms of our Fellows As they pressed Forward to the charge Vith sabres raised and lances levelled made the Mere Suie Tacle Beautiful but accompanied with All its terrors it was one of the most awful grandeur. The solid Earth Shook and reverberated Vith a sound like Thunder As a thousand horses spurred to their utmost Speed went tearing up the Hill scattering the turf and grass like a Cloud of Sand behind them. Tile enemy were nothing loth to accept the Challenge and indeed they had Little reason for their numbers Yvere As nearly three to one. In a line of two thirds of a mile they swept Down from the Hill upon our men meeting them about half any no. The Dull heavy noise Vith which they dosed could lit heard at a mile off Aud made the listeners blood run cold. It is inmost impossible to give any hut a very general idea of the struggle which followed though i sax it Well and closely for much to my annoyance the tide of Battle had Howell to wit bin a few Yards of where two minutes before i had thought my self perfectly Safe. With the first Shock Al out too men Aud horses on both sides instantly fell Aud both sides seemed to recoil Aud clutch their weapons closer for a deadly hand to hand combat. Iii another moment there Xmas nothing to vie seen hot a confused crowd of Hussars cossacks scots Greys and lancers who were shooting cutting Aud stabbing at Otic another in All directions. It xxx As impossible to say which did Best for the dust smoke and confusion were too great to permit anything like accuracy of observation hut it was quite evident both fought Well for neither gave Way though the bodies of men Aud horses numbered the ground. After a minutes contest part of the Greys Drew off for a few Yards and turning it a Gallop made a desperate attempt to break the russian Lino they Yvere almost successful at the first Onset and the 16th, imitating the example levelled their lances and charging for a few Yards made an a Vul Gnu Iii the enemy a ranks. To crush these attempts before they had time to be successful the russian line which from their immense superiority of number outflanked ours on both sides tried by Wheeling round to enclose our Gallant Greys and lancers but before the manoeuvre could be effected the sup for thug regiments of the heavy brigade the 1st Dragoon guards and 6tli Enniskillen came Down like a Thunderbolt up the russian flanks. The charge was Well timed Aud Well executed and attended with Complete Success. The Light Wheeling cossacks disappeared like Snow before the charge of our dragoons the Hussars broke up in disorder Aud in another instant the Dragoon guards Greys and lancers were among them Sah reing and pistol Ling right and left. Unlike our regiments Tho russians while disordered made no attempt to rally. Tho instant their line was broken they scattered and fled like liars to the top of the Hill Anil across the High Road closely harassed in the rear by our men. Unfortunately they Yvere unable to continue the Pursuit from the proximity of the russian batteries and the instant our cavalry halted the russians hunted also and commenced re forming their line still twice As numerous us our sin order to renew the contest our men Iii the meantime were compelled to a withdraw under cover of the Hill As while exposed of the Heights Aud High Road the cannonade of the enemy told severely among them. Atter an interval of ten minutes during a Vicli the russians poured a perfect Shower of shot and Shell into our lines Anil daring which also the Long wished for reinforcements from our entrenched Camp were discerned coming up to our assist Atlee the enemy a cavalry again advanced to the attack. This time they came in Vith a Battery of horse artillery and after a severe cannonade of a few minutes upon our men again descended the Valley and advanced to the charge. The whole of our heavy cavalry in one Strong line met them on this occasion. There was the slime desk iterate charge the same Shock but not the same fighting. After a minutes resistance the enemy a whole flue gave Way and retired in confusion Toxvard the Heights. On this the russian cavalry general who to do him hut Bare Justice conducted himself wit ii undoubted skill and bravery throughout the Day halted the flying squadrons and persuaded them to stand again and face our men who were within ten Yurits in hot Pursuit. The contest was therefore for a moment renewed upon the Heights. But the struggle lasted Only for a few minutes the remnants of the Light cavalry came up in proper time and the ferocity with which they dashed into the enemy a flanks carried All before them. The russians again broke Aud Heil but this time our men were among them strewing the Plain with cat cases. To save themselves from the Slaughter us attack the russians sought shelter under the batteries in that fatal Valley where our Light cavalry have suffered so severely. Two or three troops of our Livorse imprudently followed in Pursuit close up Aud were terribly mauled by the batteries As they retired. After these signal triumphs our men again returned to the shelter of their Hill watching the movements of a body of the enemy a horse on our right which was moving near the front of our lines As if seeking for a Point on which to charge our infantry. I need hardly say our Fellows were prepared. The 93ril highlanders As the enemy passed them at about 700 Yards distance fired a Volley of musketry which even at that Long Range brought some 30 or 40 to the ground. After this their cavalry retired Aud sheltering themselves under the redoubts took no further part in the events of the Day. The fire of artillery was now renewed on both sides the enemy having rather the advantage from their Superior position. Under cover of their fire a powerful body of russian infantry moved round to the Heights from which their cavalry Hail twice unsuccessfully attacked. The aspect of affairs was now getting most critical for the English while our Small Force was compelled by the actual efforts of the enemy in the redoubts on our right to concentrate their forces in that Quarter the new movement threatened them with a simultaneous attack in front and rear. Fortunately at this anxious moment when if to be Trissi ins had attacked we must either have abandoned Balaklava with All its stores Aud shipping or been driven into the sea the reinforcements commanded by lord Raglan sir George Cathcart and the Duke of Cambridge came into play. As they poured fast along the Road from Sebastopol they in turn menaced the russian right flank which rested on it and which if advanced further to attack us would risk being entirely Cut off front Tho main Boily. The enemy were therefore compelled to fall Hack and even to close in upon their Centre in order to prevent their position on Tho right from boing turned. Lord Raglan who had come up with the 1st and 4th divisions of infantry one r Rench division under general Forey and All the i Rench cavalry prepared to extend his advantages by sending out skirmishers to reconnoitre for an attack but the attempt was found useless. The russians la id the whole of the right of our position which we had strongly entrenched for the turks Aud this was far too Strong to permit our storming it especially As the russian still outnumbered ours by about 16,000 men. After a Short pause the enemy advanced a Little and seemed As if they were offering Battle to us. Our troops replied with a heavy fire of artillery. They then in turn brought their artillery into play and a smart cannonade ensued which lasted for about half an hour. In this the russians decidedly got the worst. Our shot and Shell pitched full in the Centre of their artillerymen knocking them about to such an extent that the whole of their batteries were at last withdrawn under cover of a Hill. As it was then drawing towards evening the action ceased beyond an occasional shot or so and both armies rested on their for tile night within 1200 Yards of each other. Towards night the 1st division returned to the trenches at Sebastopol where they were much needed As a sortie upon our lines was hourly expected from the Garrison of that town. Thus ended the Battle of Balaklava having lasted about eight hours. Lieutenant d. Clutterbuck wounded slightly lieutenant and adjutant Edward Stager wounded slightly. Ika Hussars Captain e. A. Cook wounded slightly lieutenant h. Trevelyan wounded slightly Cornet g. P. Houghton wounded severely. Incidents of the Battle. The Battle Field. As a matter of course the Field on the spots where the cavalry contests had taken place was a horrible sight More so rom the peculiarly ghastly nature of Sabre wounds. In such places the dead and dying melt Aud horses literally covered the ground. Both ourselves and the enemy appear to have had two horses killed or wounded for one Tau. This gave the Field an unusually sanguinary appearance very Likely to mislead those not of the spot. I have always imagined that split skulls and Cloven Heads were figures of speech until to Day when i have indeed been terribly convinced of the reality of such horrors. Some of the dead to Day had their Heads As completely Cloven As if the operation Xmas performed by a surgeon with a saw. Nearly All the russians were so killed. Our Fellows were Princi rally slain with Lance thrusts i saw one Boily Vith 13 such wounds through the Chest and stomach. Another Man had six which All were Mere flesh wounds and not Blini Crous. Tile same Man in the 17th Lancer extraordinary and incredible As it May appear had two horses killed under him one or two Sabre and Bullet wounds in his Cap his sword Lieut double in its Sheath by a mime Bullet five bullets in his Saddle one in his Lance staff and sword cuts correspondent. Punishment of cowards. After the fight was quite done i saw our men Ligating out with tile Butts of their muskets the wretched turks who were hiding away under the Trees and Bushes in All directions. One of our marines was literally kicking Back into the Field near a Hundred of these Cravens. Until i sax the conduct of these Fellows i could never have believed that even the most effeminate race would have behaved so with in their hands. The Fexy men they had wounded Yvere All hit by their own artillery As they ran from their batteries. I have been informed on very Good authority that the India in command of the turkish redoubts Xmas shot by order of the Allied generals this afternoon. Actual treachery is said to Hare been clearly proved against him. I do not vouch for the truth of this fact though it Xmas Given me by one who ought to be a very Good authority a ibid. Interview with a Bussian. There was a Large proportion of killed and wounded russian officers it Xmas quite impossible to distinguish them from the privates except by the superiority of their under clothing. Their uniform Xmas precisely similar to the common soldiers wit i the exception of a narrow strip of Gold lace on the shoulder. Struck with this peculiarity i addressed one of the russian officers who Xmas slightly wounded and could speak French and he informed me that the cause of the change in their dress Xmas owing to an order to that effect which had come from St. Peters Burg about three months ago Evhen the invasion of the Crimea appeared probable. He also said that general Luders had commanded Iii chief the attack of to Day and that the cavalry Yvere under the orders of grand Duke Maxi Milanovitch. Most of tin troops had been sent in by Meus Clickoff who had collected them from different garrisons and depots throughout the Crimea. They had marched from All parts of the country and still had five Days provisions with them Aud expected More. Prince Menshikoff Xmas greatly out of favour Vith All the other generals in consequence of his defeat on the a position a Vicli from its strength he should have held against the a world. The defeat Xmas attributed to his negligence. On the Day of the Battle Mensch Kotty wore the uniform of a private cavalry Soldier. Tile same officer informed me that he Xmas certain we should never take Sebastopol either by sea or land. The russians had thrown up so Many additional a works that the place was even stronger than when we first set do Xvi before it. Our fire on the town however had done a Good Deal of mischief especially in setting fire to a russian Hospital in which wore 1000 sick and a founded the majority of whom perished in the flames. He Laid the blame of this awful Accident on the russian commanders who declined to hoist any distinguishing Flag by which the allies might know and respect the . A Bitis bravest. A series of hand to hand encounters go on Between our skirmishers and those of the enemy All Day Long Aud in which our fellow is Are uniformly successful. They go out to these encounters Vith almost chill like Delight Aud the escapes of some of them seem almost miraculous. In one of these encounters a Rifleman Xmas taken on tile 26th, Aud carried prisoner into the russian trenches. Liere in the presence of our he succeeded in killing and wounding three of the enemy broke through All a Olio tried to Stop him scrambled Over the russian works and though whole volleys of shot Yvere sent after him and he Xmas pursued by hundreds he contrived to elude All and reached our Camp amid tremendous cheers. Laird Raglan to Mark his successful gallantry made him a present of �5, and Laid him a High compliment on his courage Anil . Sortie of the Garrison. From the times special correspondent. October 26. Last night when our guns were taken into Sebastopol there Xmas great Joy throughout the City Anil it Xmas announced that the russians had gained a great Victory. A Salvo of artillery Xmas tired and at 9 of clock A tremendous cannonade was opened against All our lines by the enemy. It did no injury.

We have had seventy men killed and wounded four officers a founded none killed and nine men killed and fifty eight men wounded. The russians Yvere utterly routed and lied in confusion harassed by our artillery and one Lancaster which mowed them Down by 20 at every discharge. Our lines Are pushed up much nearer. The French Magazine again Hlex up to Day inside their right attack. It Xmas flied by a russian Shell. They fire 13-Inch shells into our batteries and yesterday they silenced 9 guns in our 21-gun Battery by this Means alone. We cannot touch the ship which fires these mortars. The russians very nearly surprised us. The fourth third second and first divisions Yvere turned out hut sir de l. Evans had the honour of driving them Hack Vith his division. 1,000 French cavalry Lamb d to Ilay. The work in the trenches goes on much As usual.

The Battle lasted till Tho afternoon when the russians retired having suffered a heavy loss Anil leaving several Hundred prisoners in the hands of Tho English the latter lost a great number of men. Generals Brown Bentinck Buller Aud Torrens were More or less dangerously a founded. The prevalent opinion Here is that if such another Victory is obtained the allies xviii he obliged to raise the siege but it is a Good sign that the last russian dispatch published Only reaches up to the 5th. Its sense is that two sorties were made on that Date one against the right Wing of the allies and tile other against the left Oving of the siege a works.

The Best situation however for the portion of the plants intended for forcing first is a spare cold Frame or near the Glass in a Cool peach House As they xviii be safer Here than under any system of Protection out of doors and As their roots xviii be preserved in an Active state very Little forcing will be necessary to excite them at the proper time.

Crows can count three and no More. A a few months since we were Riding in a stage coach with several gentlemen when the conversation turned Union the subject of crows and Many interesting anecdotes Yvere related. One gentleman said that he knew that or oxus could count at least As far As three for to had often proved it. Being troubled wit i crows Iii the Field he Bod often attempted to shoot them hut they knew what a gun was As Well As he did and therefore kept out of his reach. He then concluded to put a Small Booth in the Field and place some Carrion a dead horse within gun shot. From this place he supposed he could fire at them when they alighted to eat. Whenever he would enter the Booth the crows would All sit upon the Distant Trees and not one a would come near until he Xmas gone then All a would alight except Tho Sentinel who remained to give xxx Liming if danger approached. The gentleman finding his plan to Tail thought he would deceive Vliem. So he took his son with him to the Booth concluding that Evhen they had seen one go away the or oxus a would think the coast Clear and descend to the bait but when Bis son left the Booth a Crow Sung out a a Caw Caw Caw a there goes on but not a Crow would leave his place. The next Day the gentleman took two persons with him to the Booth and then let them depart one at a time. The crows on the Trees sax the first and cried out a a there goes one a in their own Peculiar dialect then xxx Hen the other event a a there goes two a but they would not alight for they had counted three when they entered. The following Day the gentleman took three others with him. When they went out one by one the crows cried a a there goes one a a a a there goes two a a a a there goes three a Aud Evhen these were out of sight they All alighted and the gun of the fourth Man did its work. The gentleman stated that this thing Laid been tried repeatedly Aud it Xmas evident that crows could count As far As three but there their arithmetic ended.
