But brief was the combat; for ere a dr,
zen blows had been exchanged,the trench.
erous blade of the Carlist chief snapped
short drat the hilt, and e ho sat there whol.
ly at the mercy of his demon foe.
I was about to bound forward and inter.
pose my sword between the disarmed col
enel and the gigantic black warrior, when
I was partially stunned by n tremendous
sabre cut, which came crashing in through
the crest of my bruz”n helmet, and t the
same instant a lance was driven deep into
the flesh and muscles of my shoulder.
A dizzy faintness came over me, and
sank down halt insensible ; but as I fell I.
caught a glimpse of a boy warrior bestrid
ing a splendid milk-white courser, and
clothed in the picturesque costume of the.
brigand riders of the Sierra Morena. In
the single glance that I caught of that
young face, I read the well-remembered,
features of that glorious picture which I
had seen framed there in the open door
way of the American brig. A hundred
I dark, bronzed faced warriors swept by ;
and my senses entirely deserted me just
as ;he young chief dashed in between the
mysterious warrior in the black uniform,.
and the maniac colonel, who was thus res..
cued from death, and hurried away by the
charging troop of mountaineers.
\V hen I recovered nay reason I was a
miserable, wretched prisoner, in the hands
of the enemy, and ten days after the on
' fortunate battle, I was consigned to the
mines of Jam Ibr life. But my destiny
was not yet accomplished. A woman's
wit, and a moman's fearless hand, term] .
me from the infernal regions of the dreary,
mines, and I was again ut liberty.

the following account of this matter:
