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 ears: 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 ter the battery but the very officer we had left Lima to 'visit 1 He was attended by a very numerous staff, 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.

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 eral to welcome us, they all sprang to meet us with a "Rues venidos, capitancs 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 in the greatestprofusion; the conviviality of the guests was unbounded; but, although tht.7 drank their chant paign out of tumblers, no one showed the smallest symptom of inebriety.

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 pocket.. To be brief, at the end of three weeks we sailed from Lima, and in a vast better humor than when we arrived there. FOR PRESIDENT, JAS.

The authors and getters-up of this moat slanderous document did not dare to show it about the city, but with the secret cunning and adroit ness of practised defamers, managed to have it distrit uted over the country in such a manner as to keep (as they think) its origia a prefoand secret.

It is and .niable that the Welsh have grievances unredressed. and extortions tocomplain of, from which other parts of the kingdom are compara tively free. The toll gate grievance is only one, and not the most oppressive of the many galling social ma ladies under which the IVeLsh in the south labor. Ex cessive rents, wretched farms, a rude state of agricul ture, tithes, and ruinous expenditures, far exceeding the measure of income. produced partly by competi tion, partly arising out of the relative position of land lord and tenant, are amongst the causes which fret and harass the occupier of the Land, and make him a mid night marauder.
