batI..", onethe :-,. soldiers of Napoleon Bonapartem12and the Austrians, at a smallSvillage in Italy. The AustriansIwere severely beaten, and the houses of thevillage were set on fire by the cannon, andall burned or torn down; the poor villagerswere driven from their homes, and thousandsA, of soldiers were killed or wounded, and leftto die on the ground; the Austrians tried to get away from theFrench, but the furious soldiers of Napoleon pursued them withtheir bayonets, or trampled them to death with their horses.In the French army was a regiment of soldiers who werecall!.ed guards; they were all dressed alike; in blue coats andpantaloons, trimmed with crimson and gold: they weretfellows to fight, and their enemies were very much of


them, or they were alwayg in the thickest ofS the battle, clearing their way with the points oftheir bayonets. While this regiment was pur-suing the Austrians, near the burning village,- onecof the Guards, an old man,, saw a swlittle girl who could scarcely walk; her paand mama had been driven from their homes,and her papa, who carried her in his arms, waskilled by the soldiers. Mary, for that was hername, held iup her little hands crying bitterly,as she lay among the killed and wounded; andthe Old Guard, who was a brave but kind sol-dier, pitied her, and took her in his arms, andwhen the battle was ended, carried her to histent, and calling his comrades together, told themof the little girl he had found; ind no one know-ing who she was, or who her parents were, theycalled herMary the Child of the Re|giit, andPo lite agreed toAtke car of her as well as they could.Poor little Mary, she: had no mama it undress her at night, andmake her a little bed, but the good old Guard gave her someof his supper and laid her d6wn on some straw, for the soldiershave no other beds in their tents; and after laying his coat"over her to keep her warm, and his haversack under herhead, she sobbed awile, and fell asleep to forget the scenes of"that dreadful day. The next morning the old Guard awokelittle Mary, and washed her face, and combed her hair as wellas hI could, for he had never taken care of a child in his life,and was almost afraid to touch her with his hard and roughhands, which he thought only fit to shoulder arms or charge"bayonet with; and after taking some dried meat and hard breadfor breakfast, he took her out to let her see the soldiers: theywere delighted with Mary, and many of them ran to take herSup in their arms, but she liked the Old Guard best, and wantedto be with him, for she was afraid of their glittering muskets, ias she remembered how terrible they looked only the daySbefore, when the noise of their guns, and deafening hurrahs


had almost frightened her to death; but they were kind to her,and she afterwards loved them very much, for she said thewhole of the twenty-first regiment was her father, as they call-ed her their child, and took care of her.The old Guard then took little Mary to live with him udshe learned to sew and play with her doll, which he ..i bought, ..for ,her; and delighted in filling his canteen with wter, andpolishing his epaulettes; she would also sing and dance ithhim, which pleased him very -much, for he loved o body b,her as he was a great man ies from his home, au had


4 LH.i22E L3A MAI M Omarched all the way withthe army.At other times, when theold Guard was not withher, she amused herselfby rambling through thefields gathering wild flow-ers, or climbing the moun-j tains to see the army inthe valiey below.S At length tMe regiment was order-ed home, and took littled Mary withthem. She suffered many hardshipsin travelling so great a journey, forsometimes she had to walk a longway, or ride on a baggage waggon,which was no better than a cart; andS in crossing the Alps, they frequentlyslept on the cold ground, without anyfire or even their suppers; and as themountains were covered with snow-tnd ice, poor little Mary passed manybitter nights and tedious days; and often thought of the peace-ful and happy home she had'ost for ever; but the old Guardwas kind to her, and often carried her on his back or in hisarms a great way: and after many lone weeks, during whichtime a great number of the poor soldiers died from suffering andtoil, they arrived in France.By this time she had grown up to be a fine girl; she alwayslived with the regiment, and had almost forgotten her papa andSmama, and the battle. The old Guard had never tried to findany of her friends, for he thought they were all killed when thevillage was destroyed; at any rate nobody had ever enquiredfor her; and they had no hopes of finding out who she was or


who her parents were. While the regiment stayed in Francethey were quartered eyear a large city, where Mary used to buyfruit and flower, for herself, and many things to please the OldGuard.; She w3 delighted with the town, i-shed to liveSthere very much; upon which the regiment agreed t send berto a boarding school, where she soon became acquainted withmany little girls who were. amiable and kind, and much anusS journey ross the Alps.<- ', ; ,' \ w :>* it h e r s t.r. .*ab o^t'th e


During Mary's, stay in thetown she became acquaintedSwith school-boy namedRodolph, who was in thesame class with her. Hewas a sprightly, daring littlefellow, and on one occasionthrew4himself between MarySand a mad ox that was rush-"ing furiously along the street,and would probably havegored her to death but forthe courage of Rodolph, whosucceeded in rescuing her.From this time Mary becamemuch attached to him, and they frequentlytook many pleasant rambles together, andthe Old Guard called him a little corporal,and said he might one day be an officerlRodolph was the son of a poor widow, whohad lost her husband in battle, and was inconsequence reduced in circumstances, andscarcely able to support herself and send him to school; but moremisfortunes came upcn them, and they were at a loss what todo to save themselves from the poor-house. Rodolph was proud,and could not bear the thought of poverty and want, and wasdetermined to do something to relieve the distress of his mother.One day, while occupied with these thoughts, the fife and drumof a recruiting party met his ears, and as a large sum of moneyI was offered to those who would join the army, and a militarylife (as related by little Mary) he thought would be the mostlikely to suit him, he stepped forward to the ranks, took his gun,held up his head, and became a soldier in a minute.Rodolph rushed home to present the money to his mother,


she heard what he had done; asthe regiment he had joined wasordered into immediate service,and he would soon be in all thehardships and horrors of war, fromiwhich she never expected he wouldWar is a horrible thing, and Ro-Idoph before long was seen uponthe field of victory; here he beha-ved so brave that he was madea corporal, and afterwards A ser-geant; and at another hard foughtbattle attracted thqe notice of hisofficer, and was promoted to therank of Lieutenant,But good fortune was in -orefor the young soldier, in a way thathe would never have thought of;it happened that the wi of the colonel of the regwhich Rodolph belonged, who had followed her bus


field of battle, was surprised one day\ ~while alone, by two stragglers from theenemy who were proceeding to rob and3 perhaps murder her; when very fortu-nately Rodolph and another soldier whohappened near the spot, and drawing theirswords, attacked the robbers boldly; Ro-I dolph's comrade however receiveda severewound, and he was there-fore left alone to defend himselfand the lady against the ruffians;but Rodolph was fearless and foughtdesperately; he wounded the twovillains, and conveyed the lady insafety to the tent of the officer.The colonel scarcely knew how to show his gra-titude; he gave Rodolph a large sum of moneywhich he immediately sent home to his mother,and gave him also the command of a company ofsoldiers, after raising him to the rank of captain.tdw happy was Rodolph when he was thus raised from acommon soldier and many hardships, to independence and hon-our, notwitstanding all the dangers and sufferings he had en-countered. Another officer was however, very much displeasedwith the good fortune which had attended one whom he consid-ered to be so much below him, and took every opportunity toinsult and injure him. Rodolph bore this for some time withgreat patience, but at last the gentleman became so ugly andtroubled him so much, that he could not bear it any longer; andthe consequence was, though he knew it was very wrong, thathe was forced to fight a duel, or else be looked upon as a cow-ard by the rest of his companions in arms.They at length met to fight, and Rodolph not wishing to harmhis enemy, fired his pistol in the air, but the other taking advan-tage of Rodolph, severely wounded him. It was sometime be-I L>* _-. '-- .. ....... ...........--


fore R'dolph recovered) but he did atlast, and by earnestly entreating theofficers to save the man who had thusacted treacherously towards him, heesc#ped a severe punishment whichhe otherwise would haves met with.The noble conduct of Rodolph filleidhim with gratitude; he asked his for-giveness, which was instantly granted,and::: they became the best of fien.; dsAfter the war was over, the armyreturned to France, and great was thejoy of Rodolph at the thought of onem


10E FEIE LM HAMBro__"more beholding his mother, and tothink he had now the means ofI -_^', rendering hr comfortable for life.On entering the town he flew tothe home of his parent, for he hadbeen away a- long while, and heSwas so altered with his plendiduniform, bright sword and epau-lettes, that his mother scarcelyi knew him; but her joy at oncemore seeing him, knew no bounds.ij Rodolph had been home but aSV short time, when the thoughts ofhis little companion would not letI -- him remain long without tryingto see her. He repaired immedi-Sately to the school, but all wereSstrange faces, and nobodr seemed to know him or little Mary" either. He next visited the camp, but found the regiment hadgone back to Italy a long time since, and Mary of course wasI ith them. Poor Rodolph returned, with bitter disappointment,and determined to join the army again, and die on the field ofbattle. With this resolution, after taking an affectionate leave ofhis mother, he returned to tent, and was soon again amid the roarSf cannon and the clash of arms; for Rodolph had been so longsurrounded by danger and the busy scenes of a soldier's life, thatthe peaceful home of his boyhood seemed wearisome to him.1, HJ -- _~ &--------, -~----= -- "!-


WE now retuirn to little Mary, who was at school, makingfriends of every one she became acquainted with, and carefullystudying *Ti^lerI ns and most always at the head of her class.On entering the room one morning, and looking round, shesaw that Rdolph was not there. He staid away the next day,and the next; when nMary heard he had been seen in companywith some recruiting soldiers, and she tyembled for fear he hadgone with them She immedlately hastened to the camp, a id


J 1ULl MA Y8_ ;almost the first thing she saw was Rodolph,with his musket shouldered, and the per-spiration streaming down his cheeks, whileSthe rough, harsh voice of an old corporalordered him instantly to his quarters.Mary waved her hand to him, but he didnot see her. The tears rolled down fromher eyes, as she turned from him-for sheknew the hardships he would have to suf-I fer-and .hurrying home, threw herself inthe arms of the Old Guard, and wept asS though she had lost her only friend. TheSnext day she heard of his departure, andwent to her studies, with the hope that hemight return and spend some happy hours1i0 with her once more.SAfter the regiment had stayed a long time" ." in France, it returned to Italy again; andScoming to a beautiful village, the Old GuardS/ told Mary it was the place where the battlewas fought, and showed her the place wherehe found her: Mary could not remember the"spot nor ny thing else which she saw, forit w as a long while ago, and she was a verySlittlegirl at that time. The houses whichhad been burned down were all built up- again, and the little boys and girls were all"playing about as though nothing had everhappened. On the arrival of the soldiers, they all ran to lookat the Guards and hear the drums.It soon became known that a young lady was with the regi-ment, and the story of her and the Old Guard was told to almostevery one, and that she once lived in that beautiful village, andwas found on the battle-field and carried off by the French so1-diers. It was not long before the story of little Mary was told


-13to a lady, who lived in a beautiful mansion or villa near theq arters of the regiment. Her husbanQ, who was an officer^ waskilled in battle, nd her little child :ost jn the crowd of peopleand soldiers who were trying to save themselvesj 'n that terribleday the French soldiers came to fight the Austrrns. "e deadbod of r husband wa found but nothing was eve w of


14 .- t the little child. The more she thoughtof the story of Mary the more she thoughtof her own little girl; and ordering hercarriage directed it to be driven to theS camp; where she found the tent of theOld Guard, and inquired for little MaryI When the lady saw her she was sur-I prised, to see such a beautiful girl withthe soldiers--for Mkry as now a younglady, and had been mr yf s with the"regiment. She asked the Old GuardSmany questions concerning the battle; and heardihpwshe was found otf the field, s runded by cannons,l and horses, and killed and ided soldiers; thatshe was crying bitterly, and sat bythe side of a deadofficer. The lady heard the Old Guard, and wept while he wastelling the story, for she began to think that Mary was her longlost little girl. But when the Ol Guard brought the dress, andI a necklac fand locket which shel on r neck, all of whichi he had carefully kept, and showed them to the lady, she criedfor joy, and clasped Mary in her arms; for it was indeed her li?. ?.." /I tie Mary; and she kissed her over and over again. The dress 1\ was the same she had worn on the morning of the battle, and"- the necklace was. present from her papa, the officer who was"J .illed; and -:ihe letters on it were for her name, which wasMary St; Clair. The Old Guard was surprised and delighted toknow that little Mffy n an officer's daughter, and that herparents were so rich and great; but the tears came in the oldsoldier's eyes when he thought she must leave him; and Maryicould not bear the thought of parting with him forever. ButMrs. St. Clair, Mary's mother, was determined they should notbe separated, when she heard how kind the Old Guard had beento her; and, after procuring his discharge, invited him to livewith them. The party at length set out for the villa, and thesoldiers of the Guards took leave of her with tears in their eyes,and rushed from the ranks to kiss her for the last time^. jj:L

never exchange for any other dress: for although Mrs. St. Clairwanted to have him dress like a gentleman, he always refused,saying he had always lived and was determined to die a soldier.Not long after this, a great Ball was given by some of theriobility, and all the officers of the army, far and near, wereinvited. The assembly was frilliant, and imposing; the brightuniforms and gay dresses glittered by the light of chandeliers,and music and festivity seemed to delight them all. As Marywas leaning on the armnof the Old Guard, she noticed a youngcaptain of infantry continually gazing on her, whose face appearedfamiliar. He stepped forward and mentioned her name, and in"an instant they were in each other's arms; it was Rodolph,The wars were ended, and it travelling about the country, hehad accidentally received an invitation. As soon as Mary enteredthe room, he reinembered her, and after making himself known,enjoyed her society for the evening. The Old Guard died at thevilla, and Mary and Rodolph were married, and lived at the vil-lage the rest-of their lives. :-]r1* ( a* V.: IIC-~IP~ 91bi %PF~navbI--.. .I-K- nil -~:

WE now retuirn to little Mary, who was at school, making friends of every one she became acquainted with, and carefully studying *Ti^lerI ns and most always at the head of her class. On entering the room one morning, and looking round, she saw that Rdolph was not there.

During Mary's, stay in the town she became acquainted Swith school-boy named Rodolph, who was in the same class with her. He was a sprightly, daring little fellow, and on one occasion threw4himself between Mary Sand a mad ox that was rush"ing furiously along the street, and would probably have gored her to death but for the courage of Rodolph, who succeeded in rescuing her. From this time Mary became much attached to him, and they frequently took many pleasant rambles together, and the Old Guard called him a little corporal, and said he might one day be an officerl Rodolph was the son of a poor widow, who had lost her husband in battle, and was in consequence reduced in circumstances, and scarcely able to support herself and send him to school; but more misfortunes came upcn them, and they were at a loss what to do to save themselves from the poor-house. Rodolph was proud, and could not bear the thought of poverty and want, and was determined to do something to relieve the distress of his mother. One day, while occupied with these thoughts, the fife and drum of a recruiting party met his ears, and as a large sum of money I was offered to those who would join the army, and a military life (as related by little Mary) he thought would be the most likely to suit him, he stepped forward to the ranks, took his gun, held up his head, and became a soldier in a minute. Rodolph rushed home to present the money to his mother,

field of battle, was surprised one day \ ~while alone, by two stragglers from the enemy who were proceeding to rob and 3 perhaps murder her; when very fortunately Rodolph and another soldier who happened near the spot, and drawing their swords, attacked the robbers boldly; RoI dolph's comrade however received a severewound, and he was therefore left alone to defend himself and the lady against the ruffians; but Rodolph was fearless and fought desperately; he wounded the two villains, and conveyed the lady in safety to the tent of the officer. The colonel scarcely knew how to show his gratitude; he gave Rodolph a large sum of money which he immediately sent home to his mother, and gave him also the command of a company of soldiers, after raising him to the rank of captain. tdw happy was Rodolph when he was thus raised from a common soldier and many hardships, to independence and honour, notwitstanding all the dangers and sufferings he had encountered. Another officer was however, very much displeased with the good fortune which had attended one whom he considered to be so much below him, and took every opportunity to insult and injure him. Rodolph bore this for some time with great patience, but at last the gentleman became so ugly and troubled him so much, that he could not bear it any longer; and the consequence was, though he knew it was very wrong, that he was forced to fight a duel, or else be looked upon as a coward by the rest of his companions in arms. They at length met to fight, and Rodolph not wishing to harm his enemy, fired his pistol in the air, but the other taking advantage of Rodolph, severely wounded him. It was sometime beI L>* -_-.

The noble conduct of Rodolph filleid him with gratitude; he asked his forgiveness, which was instantly granted, and::: they became the best of fien.; ds After the war was over, the army returned to France, and great was the joy of Rodolph at the thought of onem

The more she thought of the story of Mary the more she thought of her own little girl; and ordering her carriage directed it to be driven to the S camp; where she found the tent of the Old Guard, and inquired for little Mary I When the lady saw her she was surI prised, to see such a beautiful girl with the soldiers--for Mkry as now a young lady, and had been mr yf s with the "regiment. She asked the Old Guard Smany questions concerning the battle; and heardihpw she was found otf the field, s runded by cannons, l and horses, and killed and ided soldiers; that she was crying bitterly, and sat bythe side of a dead officer. The lady heard the Old Guard, and wept while he was telling the story, for she began to think that Mary was her long lost little girl. But when the Ol Guard brought the dress, and I a necklacfand locket which shel on r neck, all of which i he had carefully kept, and showed them to the lady, she cried • for joy, and clasped Mary in her arms; for it was indeed her li?. ?.. /I tie Mary; and she kissed her over and over again. The dress 1 \ was the same she had worn on the morning of the battle, and "the necklace was. present from her papa, the officer who was "J .illed; and -:ihe letters on it were for her name, which was Mary St; Clair. The Old Guard was surprised and delighted to know that little Mffy nan officer's daughter, and that her parents were so rich and great; but the tears came in the old soldier's eyes when he thought she must leave him; and Mary icould not bear the thought of parting with him forever. But Mrs. St. Clair, Mary's mother, was determined they should not be separated, when she heard how kind the Old Guard had been to her; and, after procuring his discharge, invited him to live with them. The party at length set out for the villa, and the soldiers of the Guards took leave of her with tears in their eyes, and rushed from the ranks to kiss her for the last time^. jj: L

He next visited the camp, but found the regiment had gone back to Italy a long time since, and Mary of course was I ith them. Poor Rodolph returned, with bitter disappointment, and determined to join the army again, and die on the field of battle. With this resolution, after taking an affectionate leave of his mother, he returned to tent, and was soon again amid the roar Sf cannon and the clash of arms; for Rodolph had been so long surrounded by danger and the busy scenes of a soldier's life, that the peaceful home of his boyhood seemed wearisome to him. 1, HJ - _~ & --------, -~----=--"!-

never exchange for any other dress: for although Mrs. St. Clair wanted to have him dress like a gentleman, he always refused, saying he had always lived and was determined to die a soldier. Not long after this, a great Ball was given by some of the riobility, and all the officers of the army, far and near, were invited. The assembly was frilliant, and imposing; the bright uniforms and gay dresses glittered by the light of chandeliers, and music and festivity seemed to delight them all. As Mary was leaning on the armnof the Old Guard, she noticed a young captain of infantry continually gazing on her, whose face appeared familiar. He stepped forward and mentioned her name, and in "an instant they were in each other's arms; it was Rodolph, The wars were ended, and it travelling about the country, he had accidentally received an invitation. As soon as Mary entered the room, he reinembered her, and after making himself known, enjoyed her society for the evening. The Old Guard died at the villa, and Mary and Rodolph were married, and lived at the village the rest-of their lives. : -] r1* ( a* V. : -IIC-~IP~ 91bi %PF~navbI--.. .IKnil -~:

At other times, when the old Guard was not with her, she amused herself by rambling through the fields gathering wild flowers, or climbing the mounj tains to see the army in the valiey below. S At length tMe regiment was ordered home, and took littled Mary with them. She suffered many hardships in travelling so great a journey, for sometimes she had to walk a long way, or ride on a baggage waggon, which was no better than a cart; and S in crossing the Alps, they frequently slept on the cold ground, without any fire or even their suppers; and as the mountains were covered with snow -tnd ice, poor little Mary passed many bitter nights and tedious days; and often thought of the peaceful and happy home she had'ost for ever; but the old Guard was kind to her, and often carried her on his back or in his arms a great way: and after many lone weeks, during which time a great number of the poor soldiers died from suffering and toil, they arrived in France. By this time she had grown up to be a fine girl; she always lived with the regiment, and had almost forgotten her papa and Smama, and the battle. The old Guard had never tried to find any of her friends, for he thought they were all killed when the village was destroyed; at any rate nobody had ever enquired for her; and they had no hopes of finding out who she was or

Mary waved her hand to him, but he did not see her. The tears rolled down from her eyes, as she turned from him-for she knew the hardships he would have to sufI fer-and .hurrying home, threw herself in the arms of the Old Guard, and wept as S though she had lost her only friend. The Snext day she heard of his departure, and went to her studies, with the hope that he might return and spend some happy hours 1i0 with her once more. SAfter the regiment had stayed a long time ." in France, it returned to Italy again; and Scoming to a beautiful village, the Old Guard S/ told Mary it was the place where the battle was fought, and showed her the place where he found her: Mary could not remember the "spot nor ny thing else which she saw, for it w as a long while ago, and she was a very Slittlegirl at that time. The houses which had been burned down were all built up -again, and the little boys and girls were all "playing about as though nothing had ever happened. On the arrival of the soldiers, they all ran to look at the Guards and hear the drums. It soon became known that a young lady was with the regiment, and the story of her and the Old Guard was told to almost every one, and that she once lived in that beautiful village, and was found on the battle-field and carried off by the French so1diers. It was not long before the story of little Mary was told

them, or they were alwayg in the thickest of S the battle, clearing their way with the points of their bayonets. While this regiment was pursuing the Austrians, near the burning village, -onecof the Guards, an old man,, saw a sw little girl who could scarcely walk; her pa and mama had been driven from their homes, and her papa, who carried her in his arms, was killed by the soldiers. Mary, for that was her name, held iup her little hands crying bitterly, as she lay among the killed and wounded; and the Old Guard, who was a brave but kind soldier, pitied her, and took her in his arms, and when the battle was ended, carried her to his tent, and calling his comrades together, told them of the little girl he had found; ind no one knowing who she was, or who her parents were, they called herMary the Child of the Re|giit, and Po lite agreed toAtke car of her as well as they could. Poor little Mary, she: had no mama it undress her at night, and make her a little bed, but the good old Guard gave her some of his supper and laid her d6wn on some straw, for the soldiers have no other beds in their tents; and after laying his coat "over her to keep her warm, and his haversack under her head, she sobbed awile, and fell asleep to forget the scenes of" that dreadful day. The next morning the old Guard awoke little Mary, and washed her face, and combed her hair as well as hI could, for he had never taken care of a child in his life, and was almost afraid to touch her with his hard and rough hands, which he thought only fit to shoulder arms or charge "bayonet with; and after taking some dried meat and hard bread for breakfast, he took her out to let her see the soldiers: they were delighted with Mary, and many of them ran to take her Sup in their arms, but she liked the Old Guard best, and wanted to be with him, for she was afraid of their glittering muskets, i •as she remembered how terrible they looked only the day Sbefore, when the noise of their guns, and deafening hurrahs
