He passed us rapidly hastily and courteously returned our Salute and Rode on to our advanced sentry. We All of course were anxiously viewing his movements and perceived that his attention was attracted towards the Heights at the North of the City the rear of which we could plainly see As we were very nearly South. The ene my were hard at work fortifying them. The general Repa esed us at a Trot and directed his course to head in about an hour we were relieved and directed to March to another Point of the River ten Miles lower Down or due North of the Point we had just quilted. On oar arrival there which was the next Day the 4th or 5th of april we saw a Pontoon Bridge which had been hastily constructed Orer which the whole brigade crossed each Man Dis mounting and leading his horse. This wag a difficult and d dangerous business As the least false step would have precipitated our chargers in the torrent that was roaring beneath and hourly increasing from the melting of the snows on the pyrenees. whole brigade got safely on the right Bank and proceeded to the Village of Grisolle where we had excellent quarters. The Hussar brigade which Cros sed Over before us and was constantly threatening the enemy formed the and Vance. We were posted in their rear and thus we remained four Days with out any assistance from the rest of the army for scarcely had our brigade passed when the River attained an impetuosity that gave it the character of a Canadian rapid. The enemy suspect ing what had taken place had sent Down boats Laden with atones trunks of Trees 4 c. Which broke the Bridge and prevented the crossing of that part of the infantry that were intended to Atuck the height on the North part of the City. On the evening of the 9th of april the Bridge was repaired and All crossed. Before Day break on the 10th, we were in our saddles and remained ready to receive the orders to March. We anticipated hot work and having inspected with More than Ordi nary care the saddles bridles arms and different accoutrements we received the expected As the East Ern Clouds announced that the Sun was not far off. Have you Ever witnessed a Fine Spring Day in the South of France if you have not i pity you. Suffice it to say this was the loveliest of that most Lovely season. On we proceeded and came in sight of those formidable Heights destined to be watered with so much British blood. On the right and left As the Light increased we saw divisions of infantry marching parallel with us. On our right were the spaniards under Don Manuel Freire. On our immediate left were the 6th Divi Sion and them again the 4th division All marching on parallel roads leading to these Heights in sub Divi a the Cage required. I miness of the Day passing before our say that the scene in resplendent or that it was the most magnificent Sunrise i Ever for it was not but it was the merriest looking Sun i Ever beheld. His rising rays were dancing on All the Spires windows and weather Cocks that came in their Way. It appeared that he was literally laughing As if in mockery of the dreadful deeds about to been staggered the head of the column a Little but still they advanced. We had now nearly lost sight of the 6th arid 4 i. .1 redoubt. I Sharp work for the eyes this my my companion to me a i was looking at the deadly fire into the brigade of the 43d, 79th and 91st. I was extremely anxious about the latter regi ment As we been quartered Ogeth at them As they passed a Gap in the Woody country they were March ing through although they were As near to us As Ever. The spaniards we never lost sight of. They were now forming in Etta front it appeared to me in columns of half battalions just pre Paratory to the attack of the our brigade was at this moment halted in an Orchard when we dismounted and watched leisurely the movements of the Spanish division. The work of death had now commenced. A furious cannonade played upon As they steadily advanced the fire in creased but still they steadily indeed As to draw from us exclamations of admiration. Bravo my boys Bravo Bravo was heard on All sides. They were now from three quarters of a mile to a mile in front of us when Ray Captain called out to by heavens i think they Are Retreat ing for i see their Cross no no said i it it the straps of their Knapsacks at added i hesitatingly i think for i new be Gan i saw the Cross sure sign their front was to us and their backs to the enemy. We now saw the French masses which had been before concealed from us advancing upon the Span urls. Our attention had been so much engrossed by what had been passing in our front that we had paid Little attention to the 6th and 4th divisions. The fire was now heard along the whole line and the action had become general. The 6th division were Gal hotly dashing up the Hill in front of the fortified Heights to replace the spaniards now in Complete Retreat. The portuguese artillery followed the 4th division who were galloping after them and formed on the first Range of Heights. They were blazing away at the redoubt from the French had poured tet Rifle broadsides of round and grape on the unfortunate spaniards. At this moment one of lord Welling ton s aids be Camp i think lord March now Duke of Gal loped up to lord Charles spoke a few words to him. In Ahmedi lately we heard the sound stand to your horses and away we were again. The first thing that particularly attracted my attention., was a wounded Hussar officer. I could see him ride slowly towards the head of our line the blood was streaming Down his thigh and he looked extremely Pale. On his coming close to me i perceived it was or. Fil Clarence now lord Munster i had known him by sight in London but could scarcely have recognised him again such an alteration had the loss of blood made in his appearance. His wound was in the upper part of the right thigh. We hat now gotten on the High read which it was necessary to Cross to take up out Des tined position in the rear of the Portu Guese artillery. Between the High Road and the base of the rising ground in front of the fortified Heights there was a spot of ground open to the French artillery on which they were directing their fire. We were ordered to Gallop As swiftly As possible Ever it till we Carrie under shelter of the rising ground on which the portuguese artillery had now established itself. Our brigade had now formed in three Dragoon guards in front 3d Dragoon 2dhnej 4th Dragoon the whizzing past about Tycie time 3 or 4 o clock p. Saw Wellington emerging from a Bye path joining the two High loads and ride past us to the rear. This was a tolerable indication that All was and considerably eased our minds. At ast the firmo ceased the Only shots we now heart were the firing Offort some awkward lellows1 pieces that had missed fire during the action Ficera were my intimate friends. W list surveying this horrible scene of carnage of which i feared Many of my friends were the victims general Packenham Rode up and accosted us mid he have you seen lord Wellington lately Tes we replied he has just gone off to the Caid he we shall soon have some work for the the sooner the said my Gallant Friend As he saluted the departing general who went by our direction in quest of lord a the ground on which we now stood had been the limit of the Advance of the spaniards and from which they had been driven by the murderous fire of their there were plentiful proofs of the skill displayed by the enemy in the direction of their guns the ground was strewn with horribly mangled bodies of Swarthy spaniards the fore feet of my horse were on the body of a spaniard the roof of whose Skull had been literally carried1 off by a round As we had now fallen in i could not move from my position. It was Curi Ous to see How the animal would Ever and anon put Down his head As if to examine the Corpse and then lift it in the air and curl his upper lip and snort with disgust at the horrid the fire which had been so Long directed in the advancing columns of infantry and artillery now began its Range on us. A dreadful cannonade was pour ing in on our brigade. Some men in the Squadron on my right were already killed and every succeeding shot indicated that we were the object aimed at. We were then directed to descend the Hill a few Yards by doing which we were protected from the enemy s fire. At this moment an officer was called for who could speak French. My col. Sent for me and ordered me to go with a sergeant of artillery to collect the peasants to assist in repairing a Bridge Over the efs which the enemy had broken Down in the morning. The Battle at this time was raging in All its fury. It was an unpleasant thing at such a moment to quit my station in my regiment but As i was ordered by my colonel there was no Remon Stra Ting All i had to do was to just As i turned my horse about a deaf ening shout from the scots brigade announced that the had gained the re doubt a most important Point. From that moment the Day was ours. As i descended the Hill i kept my Eye on our brigade determined to keep it in View so that i could regain it when i had finished my business at the on my arrival there i found some peasants already collected and an eng Lish non commissioned officer Spe Siung to them fluently in their own i told him i had been sent to assist him he could not make himself understood. He said he thought he could manage Verajr Well without i then clapped spurs to my horse and went in search of my regiment which had now changed its for it was not where i left it. The fire had by this time considerably Slack ened and the fight was drawing to a the shouts i heard Over the Hill seemed to indicate that the redoubts were one by one gained. A few dropping shots and there however shewed that some enthusiastic heroes were determined to keep it up. 1 not and Ham the flints contrived to get them Clear when the occasion for them had gone by. As the Thadea of night began to close on tha Toad in which was a building Large Barracks like a Pidjeon House i on the left a farm House. In the latter i and my Bro ther sub Bent our Steps to find something to refresh our exhausted bodies for we had eaten nothing1 since the Day before. Nothing was to be found the House was occupied by wounded officers and All we could do was to Malie a fire in the Yard and in the absence of food try to refresh Olirs Elres with sleep. As we were thus endeavouring to forget our in the arms of morpheus or veil wounded men of the Highland brigade were brought to the fire we had lighted. Uliey were All fright fully mutilated. One of them had scarcely been Laid Down than he expired. Several oth ers were breathing with Tyve utmost difficulty and showed evident symptoms that they had not Long to live. Dreadful As the scene was we were awakened by the piercing shrieks of a female. She was a scotch woman and was making the air re Echo with a Haij whar ii sandy1" said she to a wounded Highlander. Dinna answered he. But i think he is with the a replied she. "1 have been thar just Noo and cd uld a find during this Lime a Man had been placing some Wood on the fire the Blaze of illuminated All around us.

In was poor Sandy who had exp fed. Sleep was out of the question. We had however some refreshment and the Twilight contrived to get something like a meal. But what horrors did the Day disclose As 1 slept on the Field 1 had an Opportunity of going Over if before the dead and wounded were removed. The sight tvs truly horrify ing. Col. The Lith had been severely wounded in the neck and As 1 passed by Hon Haploid me one half of his regiment had been killed or wounded. 1 am afraid to say what the hot mustered but it out of action by a subaltern who commanded it the next Day. As i was going Over this scene of horror i saw a poor tenth wounded in tie Hrdy finding that i spoke French he entreated me to procure him a sur Geon. 1 proceeded to the nearest regiment for that purpose hut alas they were All engaged and god know g Here was employment enough1 for Vliem. I returned to offer that assistance i had cd sued the body of a fins Young Man of the 79th was lying in one of the redoubts. As they turned him up i recognised Lieut Purvis who had sailed from Mouth in the same Fleet with me. In one their were traces of blood for Twenty or thirty Yards. The loss of the allies in killed and 4 wounded exceeded six thousand. That of Iba French we never knew but it was not so great As they were defended by their entrench ments and redoubts for the number engaged Toulouse was a most bloody encounter and to say might been prevented had taken place two Davs before Peregrinus.
