The French army was, preparing during
the campaign of 18o1) to meet the Austrian
forte under the Archduke Charles in the
plains of 'ltaly, and was traversing with al
most incredible difficulty and perseverance
the stupendous line of the Alpi which ex

to overcome them.

Adjutant tienerai, resolved to hold out so
long as one of them should be left alive.
In a few instants the residence of the
brave Veteran was transformed into an tic
twit fortress; loop-holes were perforated
in the walls, barricades were hastily erect
ed, and every energy was exerted to ac
complish an effective defence.
Cochet was the first to enter Ivree, but
he was closely followed by Leaned, who
sent. an officer and two battalions of the
twenty second to fort e the position of the
enemy. We refrain from naming this of
ficer out of respect to his family, several et
whose members have, since the event which
we are about to record, filled with honor
to themselves an elevated rank in the
French army ; let it suffice that Major
L—, who was conspicuous in the Repub•
limn forces for his ferocity and headlong
courage, penetrated, at the head of one of
the battalions (by pegging over the bcidies
of the forty gallant fellows by whom his
entrance was opposed.) into the house of
the Austrian General. This dauntless
man, after having seen all his little garri
son fall and expire around him, had armed
himself - with a - hatchet, which he wielded
with superhuman energy against his ad
vancing foes ; andestiajor appeared
at the door of the room where he had
taken up hie last poet, he aimed so furious
a blow at his head with the formidable
weapon to which his hand had already be
come accustomed, that had not the wary
officer adroitly struck-it aside with has
sword, it must havejelld him to the earth.
It was his dosing effort, however ;It the
next instant he fell, and the apartment
was invaded by the French soldiery.
Major L—. who had never during his
fifteen years of military service given quar
ter to an enemy, was already advancing
towards the veteran to complete his work
of blood, when a young and singularly
beautiful woman rushed out of a neighbor- ,
chamber, and, falling at.his feet, and
clinging to his knees, pale,' dishevelled,
writhing, and almost insane, shrieked out
in a voice of terror and despair, from which
all the tenderness of the woman and the
I wife had disappeared :

Major - L turned pale as their eyes

thrilled to every heart; "I must under

and at once felt that there was room neith

dashed as he crushed his glove in his clasp

the murderer, who stood before him
trembling, stupefied, and stammering out
a few incoherent words of explanation and
"You are a coward, Sr!"i. he exclaimed
vehemently ; "You have assassinated a

felt that he was lost.

The major looked up haughtily.
"General," he exclaimed, steadily, but
with the coneentrateil emotion of one who
was yielding up the better portion of his
existence—"here are my crops and - my
sword. I now demand a court-martial."
"You shall hare one, sir, you shall have
one, and no later than to-morrow." was the
rejoinder. Then, turning towards the of
ficers, who had remained silent spectators
of this exciting scene, the general ap
proached the corpse of the Austrian vete
rap, and removing his hat, said solemnly,
"Follow my example, gentlemen—too
much honor can never be paid to the fal
len brave."
During the remainder of this frightful
day, the young widow continued a prey to
the most agonising despair. After having
seen her husband laid in his grave with all
the impri*sive- ceremonies of a military
funeral. the unfortunate woman, who had
lost in one hour all that she had loved on
earth except her child, fell into a perfect
I•bit s of ajlat hy—that apathy alike of soul

terror, which is not madness, but the utter
apathy of despair. dot even the tears or

was extinct.

and courage to speak and to act ; but now
that the assassin of her huiband had under
gone the disgrace of a public 'degradation,
while the prompt tend fearful retribution
of a military tribunal threatened his life,
she remembered only the immensity of
her loss, the depth of her bereavement •
and she was consequently more astonishe d
than alarmed when, early on the following
morning, a French eide-de-eamp came to
apprise her that the General-in-Chief de

who were to pin: or to lose thrones; and

many others wh were subsequently to be

the Geneml-in-abief, his arms folded tight

the ground.
As the lady catered he looked towards
her, advanced ip silence, and led her. to a
