Retreat was hopeless. At this trying mo

played a bearing and a spirit of the most
lofty heroism. In no w ise daunted by the
imminent peril of his position, he mounted a
fallen tree of the forrest, and calling around
him bis now demiiiishcd bund, he spoke
these thrilling words : " The enemy "s balls
have thinned our ranks. His numbers are
overwhelming. Directly tho shock must
come, and there's no retreut. We are in

called to the negro man in a loud voice, '
