morning, Captain Arm-strong, 'he ino.ldssb

corps, was detached with twelve men, on a
irconnoitering expedition, and during the
afternoon of the same day. Capt Eggleaton
was sent out with a party of eighteen in a
different direction. Towards evening the
parties met; and having formed a junction

cover to hide us from casual observation,
wlion dismounted; while at the samo time,
it enabled us to see every thing passing on
the road. Wo thiew ourselves on the
ground, under the broad canopy of heaven,
as was our usual custom, not being possessed
of tents and slpet soundly .having first fasten
ed the bridles of our horses to our hands. At
lireak of day, having aroused ourselves from
slecp.while some were idly lounging about,
and others standing chatting, in groups, a
woman, wrapped in a red cloak, and mount
cd on horseback, passed by. Some of the
men, for want of bctte.r employment, kept
following her with their oyes as she rode
along. Presently s,he turned a road
intersected the one that ran in front of our
position, and led to tho British camp. It
was skirted by high fences on either side
that terminated at the wood we were. As
thoy continued watching her progress' their
eyes fel suddenly upon a party of sixty
British dragoons, who were approaching
her from their camp, on a foraging oxpedi
tion. They rode up to her, and during
their conversation, her pointing frequent!
towards the spot where we were stationed,
soon conivneed us that she had discovered
-iir nosilion and was imparling her kaowl
edge to them. Well aware of what was
likely to ensue, wo all, without waiting for
orders, mounted our horses, and sat in silent
expectation. 'What shall wo do?' said
Eggleslon, turning to Armstrong, 'Charge!
charge them!' replied the latter, nnd at the
-flame time mounting his horse called out
twelve men follow me,' and dashed down
the road towards them at full speed, without
ever stopping to weigh the hazard of an
cnrounter,wilh a foice so vastly his superior
The enemy seeing two bodies of cavalry
,ssjp from the road, drew up his line face
i,?g us, and sat firmly, pistol in hand, wait
rg our approach. As Armstrong rode up
they fired al his patty, but so hurridly that
not a shot took effect, and before they had
time to draw their sabres, he burst in upon
Ihem like a thunder clap, overturning whole
rinks, and cutting them down in every di
,ection, ,
Eggleston now joined, and the slaughter
became terrible, for they the first
instance, that the fire of their pistols would
either check or repulse us, had made no at
tempt to draw their swords, until we came
hand to hand with them. Such attempt
vhen made was in the most cases rendered
of no avail by the ardor snd gallantry of our
men, who unhorsed them beforo the sabre
had left its sheath, or dealt a blow in defenec
of its wearer. Resistance was now cl)3ng
cd to flight, aad while pressing their flying
flank, in the chase, we were forced to cut
down many who had ceased to resist, as a
regard to our own safely, and theii niiweri
cal strength, foibude their being left un
harmed & capable of doing us injury in the
rear. Hemmed in on both sidew by furices.
ni'ri mounted on sorry horses, this last re
course availed them so little, that hut one
of the whole parly escaped capture or death
and so hotly did we pursue him thatt'.io out
r line of sentinels was passed, and one of
lliem captured, before we reined in. The
ilteachment captured, formed part of the
army,ur.der tho command of Lord Rnwden,
General Lee uas mentioned the circumstance
in Ins Memoir, but is inrorr6ci in the tnin
or details, He says Eggleston was detach
ed willi 3P dragoons, to join Armstrong,
who had been previously sent out with t
party and that 46 only of the enemies dra
groons were taken. The fact is we num
hered in pit but thirty men, anil captured or

I'he miners on Tuesday, having discovered

that there was a hole or offset in a working

of the inflamable matter had collected and
when the lamp was applied, this mass of

such scenes, threw themselvpg upon thoir

Such virtue can only be the result of a right

reliance on the devino assistance; for it is
manifest the human ambition is lo short

which actuated their lives wero felt in tit t'
