floor, isherr-t her eye ran, , zed along the extei,deil
ranks—and a bright flush overspread her rewriter ,
as her glance rested s lor a morat. - nt oil, ?he handsome

of the Ratallron without a single word, but wi•li a
frowning. brow and an angry expression on his fea

plain was seen advancing a band of soldiers, each
earryirq in his hamd one of deem long radii which
: are still u-ed in the Russian service as the tool ilia
hateful punislinaent. dt that sight the General til l

cooly answered, as You!"
At these wools an electiß. shock permed tr. pa-
Mont! the rainks, and a gleam of ihte lightened up
the habitually- passitairess features of the men. By
