    taking the bit between his teeth, started off at a mad
gallop, closely followed by myself, and the orderly, to
whose horses the panic seemed to have cammunica- -
ted itself. The clouds .3f dust raised by the animals'
feet, prevented us from seeing whither he was going.
Suddenly there was an explosion that seemed to shake
the very earth under w, and Ready, the orderly and my
self, lay sprawling with our horses on the ground.—
Before we could collect our senses and get up, we
woneitaarly deafened by a treneendoos roar of artillery
close taus, and at the same moment a shower of stones
and fragments of bricks and mortar clattered about our
Tbearderly was stunned by the fall; I was bruised
and bewildered. Ready was the only man who semi
setiaao way , pet out, and with his usual phlegm, elan
.' oal/ng himself from under his horse, he came to our ea
iristaiscie. I was 110013 on logs, and endeavoring to dia
• liver the cause of all this uproar.
Our unruly steeds had brought us close to the new
battery, at the rely moment when the train of a mine
under the houses in front of it had been fired. The in
...eat the obstacle was removed, the artillerymen had
• opened a tremendous fire on the fort. The Spaniards
a were trot slow to return the compliment, and fortunate
It was that a solid fragment of wall intervened between
us end their fire, or all our troubles about the brig, and
every thing else, would have been at an end. Already
zspwani of twenty balls had struck the old broken wall.
Shot and shell were flying in every direction, the
smokestifiing, the uproar indescribable. It was so
dark,from the smoke and dust from the fallen houses,
that we could notsee an arm's length before us. The
captain asked two or three soldiers who were hurrying
by, where the battery was, but they were in too great
haste to answer, and it was only when the smoke clear
ed away a little, that we discovered we were not twen
itypacea from it. Ready seized my arm, and pulling
ate with him, I the nexemoment found myself stand
' ing beside a gun, under cover of the breastworks.
The battery consisted of thirty, twenty-four and thir. ,
Veil" pounders, served with a zeal and courage which
fist-exceeded any thing I had expected to find in the
patriot army. The fellows were really more than brave:
they were fool-hardy. They danced rather than walk
ed round the guns, and exhibited a contempt of death
that could not well be surpassed. As to drawing the
guns bask from theembrasures while they loaded them,
they never dreamed of such a thing. They stood jeer
ing andscoffun the Spailardi, and bidding them take
better aim
/t must be remembered that this was only three
months after the battle of Ayachncho, the greatest feat
of arms which the South American patriots had achiev
ed during the whole of their protracted struggle with
Spain. That victory had literally electrified the troops
sod inspiredthem with courage and contempt of their
enemy, that frequ ently showed itself , and on this meet
sion, in acts of t egreatest daring and temerity.
At the gun by which Ready and myself took oar
stand, half of the artillerymen were already killed. and
e - we had namely come there when a cannon shot took
off the bead of aman standing close to tne. The wind
of the ball was so great, that I believe it would have
suffocated me. had I not been fortunately standing
sideways in the battery. At the same moment, some
thing hot splashed ?ter my neck and face and near
blinded me. I looked, and saw a man lying without
his head before me. I cannot describe the sickening
feelings that came over me. It was net the first man
I had seen killed in my life, but it was the first whose
blood and brains had spu rted into my face. My knees
shook and me head swam.; i was obliged to lean against
the wall, or I should have fallen.
Another ball fell elms beside me, and strange to say,
it brought me partly to myself again; and by the time
a third and fourth had bounced into the battery, I be
gin to take the thing pretty cooly—my heart beating
rather quicker than usual I acknowledge; but neverthe
less, I began to find an indescribable sort of pleasure,
a mischievous joy, 111 mty so call it, in the peril and
excitement of the scene.
While I was gettineever my terrors, my compan
ion was mcning &boucle battery with his usual sang
'roil, reconnoitering the enemy. He ran no useless
risk, kept himself well behind the breastwork, stoop
ing down when necessary, and taking all propercare of
himself. When he had completed his reconnoissance,
he, to my ne small astonithrnent, took off his coat and
meek-handkerchief, the latter of which be tied tight
round his waist, then taking a rammer from the hand
of a soldier who had just fallen, he ordered, or rather
signed to the artillerymen to draw the gun back.
There was something so cool and decided in his
Isteener, that they obeyed without testifying any surprise
atehie interference, and as though he had been one of
their own officers. He loaded the piece, had it drawn
forward again, pointed and fired it. He then went to
the next gun and did the sense thing there. He seem
exiso perfectly at home in the battery, that no one ever
dreamed of disputing his authority, and the two guns
were entirely under his direction. I had now got used
to the thing myself, so I went forward and offered my
services, which, in the scarcity of men (so many hav
ing been killed) were not to be refused, and I hnlped
to draw the gun, irackward and forward, and load
them. The captain kept ri ening from one to the other,
pointing them and admirably well to; for every shot
took effect within a circumference of a few feet on the
bastion in front of us.
this lasted nearly an hour, at the end of which time
the fire was considerably slackened,for the greater part
of our guns hall become unserviceable. Only about a
dozen kept up the fire' (the hall 1 was going to say,)
and among them were the two that Ready command
ed. Hehad given them time to cool after firing, where
as meld the others, in their desperate baste and ea
gerness, had neglected that precaution. Although the
patriots had new been fifteen years at war with the j
Spaniarde,they were still very indifferent artillerymen,
for artillery bad little to do in most of the fights, which
were generally decided by cavalry and infantry, and
even in that of Ayacucho there were only a few am dl
field pieces in use on either side. The mountainous
nature of thecountry, intersected, too, by mighty rivers,
and the want of good roads, were the reasons of the in
significant part played by artillery in these wars.
While we were thus herd at work, who should en

and was evidently of a very high rank. He stoo-1 a
little beck, watching every movement of Captain Rea
dy, and rubbing his hands with visible satisfaction.—
Jolt at that moment therm:nein fired one of the guns,
and as the smoke cleared away a little, we saw the op
poe/te bastiori rock, and then sink down into the moat.
A jtiyous hurra greeted its fall, and the General and
hie mar sprang forward.
It would be necessary to have witnessed the scene
that followed in order to form any adequate idea of the
mid joy and enthusiasm of its actors. The General
seized Ready in his arms, and eagerly embraced him,
then almost threw him to one of his officers, who per
formed a like ceremony, and in his turn, passed him
to it third. The imperturable captain flew, or was toss
edlike a ball, from one to the other. I also came in
for my share of the embraces.
I thought them all stark mad; and, indeed, I do not
believe they were far from it. The bailee ere still hail
ing into the battery; one of them cut a poor devil of an
orderly nearly in two, but no notice was taken of such
trifles. It was a curious scene enough; the cannon
balls pouncing about our ears—the ground under our
feet slippery with blood—wounded and dying lying on
all sides—and we ourselves pushed and passed about
fromthe arms of one black bearded fellow to another.
?Isere was something thoroughly exotic, completely
SeuthAmerican and tropical in this impromptu.
Amiga to say, now that the breach was made, and
a breech such that a determined regiment, assisted by
well directed fin of artillery, could have no difficulty
in seeming the town, there was no appearance of any
disposition to profit by it. The patriots seemed quite
contented with what had been done; most of the 0.`6-
ears left the batteries, and the thing was evidently over
for the day. 1 knew little of Spanish Am ricatos then,
or I should have felt less surprised than I did at their
aotfollowing up their advantage. It was not frons want
of courage, for it was impossible to have exhibited more
tlaaa they had done that morning. But they had their
saaatent of fury, of wild energy and exertion, and the
other-aide of the national character, indolence now
'bologna itself. Alter fighting like devils, at the very
nsolitent when activity was of the most importance,
dopy* down and took their siesta.

his Excellency returned from the batteries; and, indeed,
we had scarcely chunked our dress and washed the
blood and smoke from our person*, when the major do :

Dinner was laid out in a large saloon,in which some
sixtyofficers were assembled when we entered it. 'With
small regard to etiquette, and not waiting locate gen

The dinner was such as might be expected at the ta
ble of a general who commanded at the same time an
army and the blockade of a much frequentodport. The
most delicious Ftenrh and Spanish wines wore there

And so saying he left his place and approaching Cap
tain Ready, affectionately embraced him. The sea
man's iron features lost their usual impertureabiliay,and
his lips quivered as he stammered out.
"Amigo siempre."
The following day we passed in the camp,and the one
after returned to Lima, the General insisting on our
taking up our quarters in his house.
From Hualero and his lady I learned the originof the
friendship existing between the distinguished Colom
bian General and my taciturn Yankee captain. It was
the honorable explanation of the mysterious stain upon
Ready's character.
Our difficulties regarding the brig were now soon at
an end. The vessel and cargo were returned to us,
with the exception offs large quantity of segars belong
ing to the Spanish government. These were of course
confiscated, but the General bought them and made
them a present to Captain Ready, who sold them by
auction, and stagers being in no small demand among
that tobacco loving population, they fetched immense
prices, and put thirty thousand dollars into my friend's
