La Tour t)'.4uvcigcc.
For many a year there was a touching
and LeauUiul custom to be witnessed in a
certain regiment of French Grenadier?,
and liica was meant to commemorate the
heroism of a departed comrade.
When the companies assembled for pa
rade, and the roll was called, there w;is
one namo to which its owner could not
uUawcr it was that of La Tour D'An-
When it was called, the oldest sergeant
preseut stepped a pace forward, and rais
ing his hand to Lis cap, said, proudly ; :
"DieJ on the lield of honor."
Forfynrietui - yeas tbia. cuetoui iva
continued, and only ceased when' tho re
stored lkiurbons, to please their foreign
masteis, forbade everything that was cal
culated to preserve the spirits of the sol
diers of France.
La Tour D'Auvcrgne was not unworthy
in life the houor thus paid him after his
death. He was educated for the army,
entered in 17G7, and in ITS 1 served under
the Duke de Crillion at the siege of Port
.Maboii. He served always vith distinc
tioiii but tonstaiitly refused offers of
promotion, haying that he was only fit for
the command of a company of grenadiers ;
but finally, the various grenadier compa
nies being united, he found himself in
command of . Wily of 8,JU0) men, while
retaining only the rank of Captain.
Hence he was known as the 'First
Grenadier of France.
Jsut it is ot one particular exploit of
his that we wish to write, more than his
career in general.
"When he was forty years of age, he
went on a visit to a friend, not far from a
section of the country that was soon to be
the scene of a campaign. While there
he was busy in acquainting himself with
the features of the country, thinking it
not unlikely that this knowledge miht be
ot use to him, and while here the brave
grenadier was astonished to learn that tho
war had been rapidly shifting to this quar
ter, and that a regiment of Austrians was
pushing on to occupy a narrow pass about
ten miles from where ho was staying, and
the possession of which would give them
an opportunity to prevent an important
movement of the French which was then
They hot-wi o surprise thi? post, 'and
w?re. moving .-.o nipidjy upon it that they
were not more than two hours distant
from the place where he was staying, and
which they would have to pass in their
march. It matters not how he heard the
news. It is sufficient to say that he de
termined at once to act upon it.
He had no idea of being captured Dy the
enemy in their advance, and he at once
set off for the pass. He knew that the
pass was defended by a stout tower, nnd
a garrison of 30 men, and he hoped to be
uoie to warn me men of their danger.
He hastened on, and arriving there,'
found the tower in a perfect condition!
It had just been vacated by the garrison,
who had heard of tho approach of the
Austrians, and had been siezed with a
panic thereat and had fled, leaving their
arms, consisting of thirty excellent mus
kets. La Tour D'Auvergne gnashed his teeth
with rage as he discovered this. Search
ing in the building he found several boxes
of ammunition which the cowards bad not
destroyed. For a moment he was in de
spair, but then with a grim smile he began
to fasten the main door and pile against
it such articles as ho could rind.
When he had done this he loaded all
the guns he could find, and placed them,
together with a good supply of ammunition
under the loop holes that commanded the
road by which the enenyr. must advance!
Then he ate heartily of the provisions
which he bad brought with bim ' and sat
down to wait. ! He absolutely formed the ';
net ore resolution to detend the tower alone
agranst the enemy.
There was something in his favor in
su ;h an undertaking. The pass was steep
and narrow, and the enemy's troops could
enter it only in double files, and doin
H is would be fully exposed to the fire
from the tower. The original garrison ot
tLirty men could easily have held it against
a division, and now one man was about
to bold it against a regiment.
It was dark when La Tour D'Auvergne
reached the tower, and he bad to wait
sometime for the enemy. They were
longer in coming than he had expected,
and for a while he was tempted to believe
they had abandoned the expedition.
About midnight, however, bis practiced
ear caught the tramp of feet. Every
j moment the sound came nearer, and at
i isi ue nearu mem entering tne uehle.
Immediately he discharged a couple of
ruuskets into the darkness to let them know
that he knew of their presence and inten
tions, and he heard the quick, short com
mands of the officers, and, from the sounds,
he. supposod that the troops were retiring
from the pass. Until the morning he was
undisturbed The Austrian commander,
fetling assured that the garrison had been
informed of his movements, and was pre
pared to receive him, saw that he could
not surprise the post as he .had hoped to
Ij, and deemed it prudent to wait uctil
daylight before making his attack.
At sunrise he summoned the garrison
to surrender. rfv grenadier answered tho
'"Say to your commander," he said,
in reply to the messenger,' "that this garrison-
will defend this post to the last
The officer who had borne heTla"g of
truce retired, and in about ten minutes a
piece of artillery was brought into the pass
and opened on the tower. 13ut to effect
thi. the piece had to be placed directly "in
! front of the tower, and within easy musket
range ot it. lhey bad scarcely got the
gun into position when a rapid fire was
opened on it from the tower, and Contin
ued with such marked effect that the piece
was withdrawn after the second discharge,
with a loss of five men.
This was a bad beginning, so half an
hour after the gun was withdrawn the
Austrian Colonel ordered an assault.
As the troops entered the defile they
were received with a rapid and accurate
fire, so that when they had passed over
half the di?tnnce they had to traverse they
had lost fifteen men. Disheartened by
this, they returned to the mouth cf the
Three more assaults were repulsed in
this manner, and the enemy by sunset had
lost forty-five men, of whom ten were
The firing from the tower had been
rapid and accurate, the Austrian comman
der had noticed this peculiarity about it
every shot seemed to come from the same
place. For awhile this perplexed him.
but at last he came to the conclusion that
there were a number of loop-holes close
together in the tower, so constructed as to
command the ravine perfectly.
At sunset the last assault was made and
repulsed, and at dark the Aufttam eoti:-niatjd-r
sent a second summons to the
This time the answer was favorable.-
The garrison offered to surrender at sunrise
the next morning, if allowed to march out
with their arms and return to the army
unmolested. After some hesitation the
terms were accepted.
Meantime, La Tour D'Auvergne had
passed an anxious day in the tower. lie
had opened the fight with an armament of
thirty loaded muskets, but had not been
able to discharge them all. Ha had fired
with surprising accuracy, for it wa.i well j
known in the army that he never threw
away a shot. He had determined to stand j
to his post until he had accomplished his
end, vrhich was to hold the" place twenty
four hours, in order to allow the French
army time to complete its manoevre. Af
ter that, he knew the pass would bo of no
consequence to the enemy.
When the demand for a surrender came
to him after the last assault, he consented
to it upon the conditions named.
The next day at sunrise the Austrian
troops lined the pass in two files, extend
ing from the mouth to the tower, leaving
a space between for the garrison to pass
. The heavy door of the tower opened
slowly, and in a few minutes a bronzed
and scarred grenadier, literally loaded
down with muskets, came out and passed
down the line of troops. : -. He walked, with
difficulty yndcr his heavy load.
- To the surprise of the Austrians, no ontf
followed him from the tower. . -J:,
In v astonishment , tho Austrian Colonel
rode up tq him, and asked.him. -in French
why the garrison did not com, out . ; "'
"I ami the garrison, Colonel said the
soldier proudly. . ,
What!" exclaimed the Colonel, "Jo
you mean to tell us that you alone have
held that tower against me V
"I have that honor, Colonel," was the
'What possessed yon to make such an
attempt, grenadier ?
"The honor of Franco , was at stake."
The Colonel gazed at him for a moment
with undisguised admiration ; then raising
his cap, hu fcaid warmly ; "Grenadier, I
salute you. You have proven yourself
the bravest of the brave."
Tne officer caused all the arms which
La Tour D'Auvergne could not carry to
be collected, and sent them all, with the
grenadier,, into the French lines, with a
note relating the whole affair.
When the knowledge of it came to the
ears of Napoleon, he offered to promote
La Tour D'Auvergne, but the latter de
clined to accept the promotion, saying
that he preferred to remain where he was.
This brave soldier met his dath in an
action at Aberhausen, in June, 1800, and
the simple but expressivVscene at roll call
in his regiment was commenced and con
tinued by the express command of the
A Hunt After a $120,000 Pack-
. age of IT. S. Bonds.
The Hartford Times tells a curious story
about a package of some $120,000 in
Government, bonds, which may be worth
relating. As we understand it, the bonds
were the property of a large wool house
in this city, and the package had been
taken .by one of the partners lor safe keep
ing. It was afterwards decided to send
the package to a branch establishment of
the bouse, located in one of the Western
cities ; an! a son of one of the partners
wsis deputed to e.et the bonds and take
them West. He procured the package at
the house where it had been left, on
street. It was in a tin box or case. He
wrapped it in a paper, put it in his carpet
bag, and started for the business house of
the firm in another part of the city.
On passing through Asylum street he
stopped at Caper Kreutzer'a boot and
shoe shop, to procure something in .his
Hue and in making room for it in his car
pet bag, he took out the tin box wrapped
in a paper and laid it lor a momant ou the
counter. Ou adjusting his came' harr h
forgot to put in the bonds, and left the
package on the counter. Nor did he
discovered tho loss on going to the firm's
house of business, but after arranging his
affairs wont oil" in the cars with his carpet
About a month after his arrival at the
West the firm here sent . him certain di
rections iD regard to the sale of a portion
of the bonds. He not finding the package,
and thinking he must have left it in the
safe at home, telegraphed back that he
had no bonds. The firm then telegraphed
him to return home immediately, for the
bonds were mbsing. " It was his belief,
and theirs, too, that he had put tho bonds
into the safe, and that somebody had
obtained acee-;3 to i, ia an uugarded
moment, during business hours, made
off with the tin box. In the midst of this
troubled doubt, ho suddenly etarU.-d up
with the exclamation that he must have
left the package. In Kreutzer'a boot store ;
and off he went to find it.
Entering the shop, he said to the pro
prietor : "Kreutzer, I'll tuke that parcel I
left here some time ago." The boot-maker
returned, and reaching up to the show
case where he kept boots on exhibition in
the shop, produced the package. It had
never been opened. It had lain for a
fortnight on a shelf or counter w hsre they
were accustomed to unroll and cut leather,
and where the proprietor had placed it,
under the impression that il would soon ba
called for. Finally, seeing that it was
uncalled for, he unrolled the paper, and,
seeing a tin box, pot it without opening it,
in the show case for safe keeping. And
thus the 120,000 in Government bonds,
after being lost lor six weeks were all
recovered. This case shows that people
are sometimes careless in large matters as
well as iu small ones.
