On the summit of a craggy hill, a spur of the moun
tains of Ronda, stands the ca4tle of Ailora, now a ruin,
but in old times one of the strong border hold* of ttto
Christians, to keep watch upon the frontiers of the
warlike kingdom of Grenada, and to hold the Moors
in cheek. It was a post always confided to a well
, tried commander, and at the time of which we treat,
was held by Roderigo de Narvuez, a veteran, famed
both among Moors and Christians, not only for his
hardy feats of arms, but also for that magnanimous
courtesy, which shookl ever be entwined with tho
sterner qualities of tire soldier.
he castle of Allora was a mere port of his convoy:id
he was Alcayde, or military governor of Antiquena,
but he passed most of his time at this frontier post, be
cause its situation on the border gave more frequezn
opportunity for those adventurous exploits which were
the delight of Spanish chivalry. Hie garrison consis
ted of fifty cavaliers, all well mounted, and well ap
pointed. With these lie kept vigilant watch upon the
Moslems—patrolling the roads, and paths, and defiles
of the mountains, so that nothing could escape his eye,
and occasionally signalizing himself by some dashing
foray into the very Vera of Grenada.
Ch. a fuir and beautiful night in the summer, vrhea
the freshness of the evening breeze had tempered: the
beat of the day, the worthy Alcayde sallied t'orth with
nine of his cavaliers, to patrol the neighborhood s and
seek adventures. They rode quietly and cautiously,
lest they'should ha overheard by the Moorish scout or
traveler, and kept along the ravines and hollow . .wap,
lest they should be betrayed by the glittering cf the
moon upon their armor. Coming to where the road
divided, the Alcayde directed five of his cavalier* to
take one of the branches, white he, with the remaining
four, would take the other. Should either party be in
danger, the blast of a horn was to be the signal to
bring their comrades to their aid.
The party of five had not proceeded fur, when, in
passing through a defile, overhung with trees they
heard the voice of a man, singing. They imubt;iiite
ly concealed themselves in a grove, on the brow a de
clivity, up which the stranger would have to ascend.
The moonlight, which left thn grove in deep shadow.
lit up the whole person of the wayfarer, as he advanced,
and enabled them to distinguish his dress and appear
ance with perfect accuracy. He Was a Moorish cava
lier, and his noble demeanor, graceful carriage, and
splendid 'attire, showed him to be of lofty rank. e was
superbly mounted on a dapple gray steed, of power
ful frame and generous spirit, and magnificently capria
oned. His dress was a marlota, or tunic, anti an al
berncz of crimson damask, fringed with gold. His
Tunistan turban, of many folds, was of silk and cottoei
striped, and bordered with gulden fringe. At his
girdle hung a scimetar of Damascus steel, with loops
and tassels of silk and gold. On his left arm he bore
an ample target, and his right band grasped a long'
double-pointed lance. Thus equipped, ho sat negli
gently on his steed, as one who dreamed of no danger.
gazing on the moon, and singing with a sweet and
manly voice, a :Moorish love ditty. •
Just opposite the place where the Spanish cavaliers
were concealed, was a small fountain, in the rock, be
side the road, to which the horse turned to drink.—
The rider threw the reins on Lis neck, and continued
The:;panish cavaliers conferred together; they wern
all so wel! pleased with the gallant and gentle ap
pearance of the Moor, that they resolved not to harm,
but to conquer him, which, in his negligent mood,
promised to be an easy task. Rushing, therefore,
from their concealment, they thought to surround and
seize him. Never were men inure mistaken. To
gather up his reins, wheel round his steed, brace his
buckler and couch his lance, was the work of an ia
,:tanr, and there he sut, fixed like a erAle in his saddle,
beside the fountain.
The Chri4tian cavaliers checked their ;teeth., and
reconnoitered him warily, lush to crone to azt carom:t
un v !licit must end in his destruction.
The Moor 13 ow held a parley. 'lf you be two
knights,' said he, 'and seek fut honourable fame, come
on, ‘iio2dy, and I am ready to meet each in Auccessiun;
but if you be mere lurkers on the road.intent oa.spoil
come all at once, and dc.your wont?'
, The co% aliers communed fur a moment apart, when
one, advancing singly, exclaimed: 'Although no law of
the chivalry obliges us to risk the !tics of a prize, when
clearly in our power, yet we willingly grant as a
riAt. Valiant Moor! defend thyself!'
So saying he s‘ heeled, tool: a proper distance,conc6 -
ed his lance, and putting spurs to his horse, mak at
the so anger. The latter met him in mid career, trails
pierced him with his lance, and threw him headlong
from his saddle. A second and a third succeeded, but
were unhorsed with equal facility and thrown to iho
earth severely wounded. The remaining two, seeing
their comrades thus roughly treated, forgot all com
pact of courtesy, and charged both at once on the.
Moor. He parried thethrust of one, but was woun
ded by the other in the thigh, and in the shock and
confusion, dropped his lance. Thus disarmed, and
closely pressed, ho pretended to fly, and was hotly pur
sued. Having, drawn the two cavaliers some distanco
front the. pot, he suddenly wheeled short about, with
one of those dexterous movements fur which the Moo
rich horsemen were renowned, passed s wiftly between
them, swung himself down from his saddle, so as to
catch up his lance, then lightly replacing himself, turn
ed to renew the combat.
Seeing him thus fresk for the encounter, as if . just
issued trum his tent, one of the cavaliers put his lips
to his horn, and blew a blast that soon brought the Al
cavde and his four companions to the spot.
The gallant Narraez, seeing three of his cavaliers
extended upon the earth, and two others hotly engag
ed with a Moor, was struck with admiration, and cov
eted a contest with so accompii hed a warrior. Inter
fering in the fight, he called upon his followers to de
sist, and addressing the Moor with courteous words.
invited him to a More equal combat. The latter read
ily accepted the challenge. Fur some time, their con
test was tierce and doubtful, and the Alcayde had
need of all his skill and strength to ward off the blows
of his antagonist. The Moor. however, was exhausted
front previous fighting, and by los s of bl oo d. H e ee
longer sat his horse firmly, mu managed him with his
wonted skill. Collecting his strength fur a last as
sattit, he rose in his stirrups, and made a violent thrus
with his lance. The Alcayde received it upop hint
shield, and at the same time wounded the Moor in tho
right arm; then closing in the shock, he grasped him
his arms, drugged him from his saddle, and fell with,
Lint to the earth—when putting his knee upon his
breast, and his dag,eser to his throat, 'Cavalier: ex
claimed he,' render thyself my prisoner, thy bfa is
in my hands.'
'Kill me, rather!, replied the Muer, 'death would he
le.ss gi ieveus thanloasof liberty!'
The Alcaytie, however, with the clemency of the
truly brave assisted the Moor to rise, ministered to
his wounds with his own hands, and bad bin) convey.
