���despatch'came  from New York to-day
to the , effect, that the Journal has received, n'-specitil   brought from Pekin
by   courier,  saying:   ' "Admiral Sey

wiped out."     The  London papers are
inclined to  believe that (he worst has
happened, to   the   legations   and   to
Admiral Seymour,-there being 300,000
,troops  around  Pekin.    It is believed,
that  the. allied  forces  attacked Tien

and prepared the feast. Fiee ice-'

The village of ^mor-jnttl'tvim A small
place, and the postolllec, wl'i-re the,
French had established headquarters,
Was its only building deserving the name.
-There, were a lot of fusel dispensaries,
but their proprietors had fled, as nobody,
either native or foreigner, paid for tilings
and as the French were known to destroy
what they could not'eat or drink or carry-,
Castellane was going to the'near uta-
blcs tj find a gentleman with whom he,
had an affair of honor. "I-iirbleu!" he
murmured as' he waded through ths
mow. "One has to get up early in-this
confounded Russia to find his man slire.
Delay might mean that Jack Front carries him off without seconds or witnesses."
As he said this he stumbled over something, and when he turned out to th*
right there was another impediment in
the road���two bodies, frozen stiff, giant
Weslph.'iliiiii elia��seurs. who o��ep had belonged to bis own brigade.
In-the center of the-yard burned a big
file. A group of eight grenadieis sat
around it. Castellane, looking closer,
saw that only three of them were alive.
The faces of the rest had the appearance
of yellow marble. They had been dead
for hours probably, without their comrades noticing it. They v.ere, loo busy
keeping life in their own bodies.
Ten paces farther the carcass of a
horse was lying. One of Cnsteilaut*'*
friends, a colonel iu the bodyguard*, and
a private of cuirassiers were trying to
erip off a nii-en of it,     When th�� em."-in

"And I returned the c'uiipliiiient with
.interest, if I sin n.it- mistaken. So we
arranged a meeting for'next morning,

we agreed to postpone the duel for two

"Pray,  captain,  where one's- honor is
concerned   ' surrounding     circumstances
cannot1 possibly be of the least moment,"
fBaid the major with fine spirit and an ef-
.fort to draw himself up to his full height.
\"Let.us" go," he'added.    "There must
be a suitable'spot behind the building."
Castellane -nodded and went aheadl
He was about to say sometjing.concern-
, lug the necessity of haring seconds when
a great noise arrested his-attention. la
front of the imperial sled appeared the
courier, swearing'and lamenting "that- his
, majesty's baggage.had been rifled. "They
killed one of my men," he cried, "and I
am responsible for it. Ah, the Polish
scoundrel! Lead is too good for him'."
Meanwhile th* thief was marched forward' between two grenadiers. ��� He turned outtobe a sublieutenant of the Le-,
gio�� of th* Vistula,' and immediately'
great crowds of curious officers and'ool-'
diera Surrounded him'. Ercn his grac��
Aleraader'Berthier, priuc* of Neufcha-
tel, came nu-tiiag out. "
"Poor  davll,"   said   Castellane.   "they'r
will,pines him against the wall, aud then
ffoodby.    It's a pity, though.    I "am eur*
hunger drore him-to tlie',act."' '���'-
, Dufresn*  said   nothing.'but   stared "at
the culprit with 'wiuVopen eyes.
/'Don't shoot ��� me,"- cried the Pole. - "I
have something'to tell,   most   important'
Information.     I   will  confess  all.    Only
give me a hearing."   ��� ,       '    *
He was hustled Into the house, tlif
courier following. At that moiueut Pi-,
fresne touched the captain's arm. "By
my soul, all is lost." '  .
"But, major,., what is this to you?"
Castellane lowered his roice after looking into ^Dufresne's i face, * which told
more than .words'. "Impossible," he cried
at'last.- "This'wretch' is lying. Pray t��"i'
me that he is. and I will believe you."   "
"No, no; he,is telling the truth." whispered the major. "I perxuaded him to
rob the sled in order to get us a meal,
just one meal, and now hewill confess
all. I am lost. My honor is" gone.',',
1 "But you, a major of the guards. I
can't grasp it."  "
VMan," cried the elder officer, "if yott
hadn't been traveling in the ��� marshal's
equipage yon would know what it means
.to t hunger��� to starve for days, weeks,
months. Ton are an, adjutant and never

"Even if I had I wouldn't have tamed

' "How do you brow?" ctiei.'tho major,'���
seizing Castellane by the arm', with hunger and madness staring *nt of his eyen.
"How does any confounded glutton know?
Tou hare dined well today as  always.
Your clothes, I see, are of the best. Night
and day you hnTp had a warm stove at
your elbow.    Ah.  this wnr has" been  a
pleasure party for such'as you.    But look
at me.   Forty nights Itharp tolled on the
frozen ground, trying to Ktitl -deep, while
hunger gnawed   my * vltsIs.     Hare you
ever stuffed yotti* month with snow until
your litis huTiie'l?    I did it to get something Into my stomach.    Once 1 lived for
three days on the leather of my helmet,
chewed to rags.    We have fought buttles
for a  mouthful of horse carcass.    I  tell
you, captain. I helped three of my men to
hnng theim-clrec on  one   and   the  same
tree nt Orcha,  and  when   I   handed  the
rope.to the last one 1 said: '(Joodby. children.     You., are. better off than   we  living.'"
Dufrcsne leaned his-,hi*nd sgsinst the
wall. The talking, the- reminiscences,
proved too much for him. **        "' -
Castellane could say. nothing.    Fie had.
forgotten   about   the   quarrel   and   the
bloody errand  on  which  he  was  bound.
-'Safe this poor fellow, save him," hie
hesrt'kept repeating.

after, a pause, ��� "I  learned of the emper-
