He was a non-commissioned -officer, and du

distinguished himself in such a manner that his
superior officers had n commended him. for pro
motion. Austria is more generous thu Eng
land towards those that shed their blood in her
service, and i e would have beeu made com
missioned offi -er long since iu spite of hs hum
ble origin and his poverty if it had no. beeu
for a fatal im pediui"nt. .This impeilimetit was
his own pasMuiiute tempci ; he . was 4 very
choleric man; harsh and brutal towards' his in
feriors, morose and stubborn towards his su
periors whenever they deemed it necessary to
check or rebuke him. He Was hated by the
men to the utdiosl. There was nut a private
in the whole battalion that hud not vowed him
revenge. He had never made one friend, nor
did he care to have one. , Strict iu the per
formance of his military service the most min
or duties of wliich he discharged . with the ut
most exactness he went his own way, reserved
solitary. Innumerable were ' the punishments
which he had brought upon the men; for, how
ever slight the offence might be, he was sure
not to pass it over "n silence. -
His 6uperic r officers respected him for his

they did not like him . The evident luck of
hntnunity in the man made him an object; of'
doubt rather than of love. Moreover, there
was a vague rumor about his having once struck
at his own ofheer in the midst of a pell-mell'
caused by a haud-lo-haud encounter with the
euemy. The report never took a clear shape,
the officer. hating beeii killed , iu the engage

soldiers having been much too incoherent and
contradictory to lead. a formal investigation of
the matter; b!sides it was at the victory of

' When this incident was made known to him,
he berame ev n more sullen, more cruel;, than
ever; bnt always, as it was well, understood, for
the benefit of the service, the slightest demands
of which he performed with the same immuta

A few weeks previous to the dreadful pun
ishment which he had now to undergo he was
mounting guaid in the outworks with some
twenty or twe ity-five men of hit own ccmpaiiy.
It was a chilly, rainy night; and when the sen
tries were relieved they were glad to stretch
themselves wet as they were upon the floor
near the large stove in the middle of the guard
room. The floor not being.ve'ry .clean, ( floors
seldom are in 1 hese localities.) and the white
iiuilortns of this men being wet, it was no won
der that the d rt adhered to them with a te
nacity that deied all exertipn to get it off,
when the wearjrs were roused by this Serjeant
to prepare for standing guard once more. The
more thev tried to rub their clothes , clean the
more sturdily e lent a lielpmg hand to their
endeavorers b'j an application jof the sad equip

cer the stick! Whilst he was fully at work,
cutting away at the men with a powerful arm,
the door opened, and the officer r on' duty en
tered the guardroom. .'7'-
"Attentioul ' commanded the serjeaut; and,
saluting his su jerior, made the usual report
that nothing v orth -remarking bad happened.
The officer, a young ensign, fresh from the mili
tary school, and almost a boy, took L no notice
of this Important news, but asked fhe sergeant
in a brisk and somewhat impetuous manner,
"What he was again striking the men for?" , k
The sergeant, already much auuoved at this
interference, gave a surly and unwilling answer jj
and, w lien the young omcer renuKeu mm, hi a
severe ainl perhaps somewhat haughty manner,
the violent and passionate man, losing all self
control, Ijfted lip his hand against his officer. .,
It was but one mUl moment quick as light
ning. The uplifted band never descended; it
was caught by a dozen powerful arms. He; was
felled tTthe g ound andxdsarmed. Half an
hour afterwards he found himself in irons in the

but an incomplete triumph after all; they
might slush his body in pieces but his proud

The blows descended ; with a fearful violence
upon him. After the; first dozen blood came;
but never did he utter one single exclamation
of pain; never riot even witl a look did he
implore for mercy. An expression of 'scorn
and disdain was deeply set on his face, as pale
as death. When he had reached at last the
left-wing of the. com pany," his lacerated back
presented a : frightful appearance. Even his
most exasperated enemies might well have been
satisfied; now; if it had bat been possible, the
commanding officer himself would have inter
ceded in his behalf; but this was not even to bo

a dcuuken man towards the commanding officer.
His eyes, swollen with blood, beamed with an
uniiatoral brightness, his respiiation was short
