After their defeat on the 80th and 81st nit., the French retired enmaue on Sedan, and; encamped around it From w h a t T teamed of the French prisoners—of whom, aa you may imagine, there was no lack in our quarter—it seems that-tthey fully be­ lieved thst the road to Mezieres would al­ ways be open to them, and that therefore, iU cam df another defeat before ’ Sedan, their retreat would be caailyaecompHshed. Being at the Crown Prince’s headquar­ ters, Wednesday evening, at Chetnery, 13 miles from Sedan, I saw at once that ■omethihg extraordinary waa going on.— It was aobn plain that the troop* were in lhe ligfiteiF possible ^ marching order. All . their knapsacks were, left behind, and they were carrying nothing but cloaks slung around, their shoulders, except that one or two bon titant* had retained their camp-kettlea. But if tbo csmp-kettles were left behind, the cartouche-cases were there—hedging heavily in front of the . men’s belts, unbalanced, as they ought to be, by the knapsacks. Soon I learned - that the-whole Prussian corps—thoae lent from Prince Frederick Charles's army, the Second Army, and the Crown Prince’s were making a forced march to the' left in the direotionotDouchcry andJIezierea, in order to shut in MacMabon’s army in the went, and so drive them against the Belgian frontier. I learned from the offi­ cers of the Crown Prince’s staff that at the same time,- while we were watching regi ment after, regiment pass through Che- -mery, tho Saxons and tha Guards, 80,000 strong, on the Prussian right, under -Prince -Albert of Saxony, ware also march­ ing rapidly, to slose on tho doomed French army on the right bank of the Venae,. which they had crossed, at Remill y on Tuesday, the 80th, in the direction of La Chapello, a small village o f 080 inhab­ itants on the road from Sedau to Bouillon ln‘Belgium. v Anything more splendid than tha men’s marching it would be impossible to imag­ ine. I saw mon lame in both feet hob­ bling along in the ranks, kind comrades less footsore carrying their needle-guns. v- Thosa who were actually Incapable of put­ ting one foot before another, had pressed pwaaanta1 wi teyance into service, and were following battle, which all felt sore would come off on the hiorrow. - THR STiBT FOETHS Bim.R-riXl.D. At seven Thursday morning my servant _ Camo to wake me, saying that the King’s horses were harnessing, and that His Maj esty would leavo in half-an-bour for the battle-field, and as a cannonado had al- - ready been heard near Sedan, I jumped np, seised crusts of bread, wine, cigars, etc., aod crammed them into my holster, taking my breakfast on the way. Just as I got to my horse King 'William drovo out in an open carriage with four . horses, for Chevange, about tbree 'and a > half miles south of Sedan. Much against my will, I waa compeUed to allow the King's staff to precedo me bri tho road to the scene of action, where I arrived my- JHlttooa after B o’clock. It was impossi- - ble to ride feat, all tho roads being blocked with artillery, ammunition wag­ ons, ambulances, etc. As I rods on to the creat o f the hill whioh rises shsuply about 900 or 700 feet above the little hamlet of Chevange, nestled in a grove below, — ———A-BosnmoEiotm panorama - burnt on my view. As Goneral Forsyth of the’UBteJTStatea srmy'femaiSedto later in the day, it would have been wol - the coining, merely to eee so eplendid s scene, without \battle’s magnificently stern array.\ Ia the lovely valley below - us, from the knoll on which I-stood With j r p oRh tho King and his staff) we could see not only the whole Valley of the Blouse, but also, beyond tbe groat woods of Bois de Loup and Francheval into Belgium, and a» far aa the hilly forest of Sumo \on the other ride of the frontier. OPENING OF THE BATTLE. There wears a few stray cannon shots fired, merely to obtain the range, as soon as i t was lig b t ; bu t the real battle did not begin until 6 o’clock, becoming a sharp artillery fight at 9, when the bat­ teries hod each g o t within easy range, and the shells b egan.to do scrious mischief.— At 11:55. the musketry fire in the valley behind Sedan, which had opened about 11:35, became exceedingly lively—being one continuous rattle, only broken by the loud growliag of th e mitrailleuses, which play ed wit h-deadly effect-upoatlie Saxon- and Bavarian columnB. Gen. Sheridan, by whose Bide I was' standing at the time, told me that he d id not remember ever to have heard auch a . well-sustained fire of small arms. It made itself heard abovs the roar o f tb,e batteries at our feet. A t 12 o’clock precisely the Prussian battery of s ix guns on the slope above the railway bridge over the Meuse, near La Villettee, had silenced two batteries of French guns at the foot of the bare hill near the village of Floing. At 12:10 the French infantry, n o longer supported by tlieir artillory, were compelled to retire to Floing, and soon afterward the junction betwoen tho Saxons and Prussians behind Sedan was announced to ns hy Gen. Von R ood , eagerly peering through & large telescope, ns being safely completed. THE W E g N C B SURROUNDED. From this moment the result of the battle could mo longer be doubtful Tho French were completely surrounded and broughf'fo bay. A t 12:25 we were all as­ tonished .to- aeo columns of retreating French infantry on tho hill botween Flo- ing -and Sedaxi, a Prussian battery- in front of S t Menges making accurate practice with percussion shells among the receding ranks. Tho wvhola hill for a quarter of an h o u r was literally covered with F rench­ men running rapidly. Less than Ixalf an hour afterwards - at 12:50—Gen, Von Itoon called our atten­ tion to another French column in full re­ treat to tho right o f Sedan, on the road leading from Bazeille to the Ln Givonne wood. They ntver halted until thoy camo to a red-roofed houso on the outskirts of 8 cdan itself. Almost nt the same moment Gon. Shsridaxx, who wns using my opera- asked mo to look at a third French column moving up a broad, gross-covored road through tho La Givonne wood, im­ mediately abovo Sedan, doubtless to sup­ port tho troops defending the important Bazeillo ravine,to th e north-east of the town. THE KJEY OF THE POSITION. At 1 o'clock tho French battorieson the edge of the weed toward Torcy and a b o v e __ it opened a rigorous fire on the advancing Prussian column o f the Third whose evident intention it was to- storm the hill northwest o f La Givonne, and so gain the key of the position on th a t side. At 1:05 yet axiothcr French battery near the wood opened on tho Prussian columns which wero compelled to keop shifting their ground till ready for <the final rush at the hills, l a order to avoid offering so good a mark t o tho French shells. Short­ ly afterword we saw the first Prussian skirmishers o a the crest of the La Givonne hills above Torcy. Thty did not seem to be in strength, and Gen. Sberidsn, etand- inff behind m e, exclaimed: “ Ah 1 tbe beggars arc too weak; they can never h o ld tbat position against all those French.\ The Genoml'i prophecy soon proved correct, for th e Fronch advanced at least six to ons; and the Prussians were soon forced to retreat down the hill to seek re-enforcomenfcs from the columns which wero hurrying to their support. In five minutes they came back again, this time in greater force, but still terribly inferior to those hugo French masses. AS UNSUCCESSFUL CAVALRY CHARGE. 11 Good heavens! The French cuiras­ siers are going to charge them,\ cried Gen. S h e r id a n s n d sure enongh, the re- ment of cuirassiers, their helmets, and breast-’plates flashing in the September sun, formed in suctions of squadrons and dashed down wm the scattered Prussian skirmishers, without designing to form a line. Squares are never used by the Prus­ sians, and the infantry received the cuiras­ sier! w ith a crashing “ quick fire,” tchndl- fm e r , at about a hundred yards distance. The great object of the PruBsians was gained, since thsy wore not driven from th e crest of th* h ill they sought to hold. Holding it thus against.cavaliy, the.Prus- sians persuaded themselves that it was possible to establish artillery on this hill. “There w ill be a devil o f a fight for th^t crast before i t is won or lost,” said Sheri­ dan, straining hia eyes*. through his field- glass a t the'Bill which was not three miles from us. Ttxe full sun w a s ahjuing on that hill; we gazing upon it had the sun be­ hind us. At 1:80 French cavalry—this time, I presume, a regiment of carabiniere—made another dash.—at-the- Prussians, wbo were receiving reinforcements every moment; but the caribiniers met with the same fate as their brethren in. iron jackets, and were sent to the right about with heavy loss. The Prussian# took advantage of their flight to advance—their line about 800 yards nearer the line which the French infantry lield. A LITTLE IIALAKLAVA' BUSINESS was tried, bu* without the success of t' immortal six lundrcd, who took the guns on which they charged. The cuirassers came down once more, this time riding straight for tlie tw o field pieces; but he- forc they catne w ithin 300 yards of the guns, the Prussians formed line as if on parade, and waiting , ti ll thqse furious French horsemen had ridden to a point not fifty yards, away, they fired. The vol­ ley seemed to us t o empty the saddles of almost th* wbole o f the leading squadron. The dead so strewed the ground aa to block the path of the squadron following, and close before them the direct and dan­ gerous toad they had meant to follow. Tlieir dash nt tho guns bocnmo a halt. R E T R E A T O F TU E FRENCH . WheU once this last effort of the French horse had been made and had failed— fniled, though* pushed gallantly so far as men and horses could go—the French in­ fantry fell swiltly back toward Sedan. It foil back because it saw that the chance of its carrying that fiercely contested hil! was gono, a n i saw also that the Prussians holding tho hill wore crowning it with guns, so that their own line could not be mnch longer tseld facing it. In an instant as the French retired, the whole slope of the ground was covered hy swarms of Prussian tirnllours, who seemed to ri»c up out of tho ground, and push forward by help of every slight roughness or depres­ sion in tho surface o f the hill. As fast as the French went bnck, these active ene­ mies followed. After the last desperate charge o f tho French cavalry, Gen. Sheri­ dan remarked lo me th a t he never saw anything so reckless, so utterly foolish, ns that last charge. \It was sheer murder.\ deep. Behind1 the King, la front a f .1 tho... cort, was fhe Staff; and ten yards in front of them again, stood His Majesty, King 'William' of Prussia, ready to receive Gen. Reilly. - That officer, as we soou learned, was the boarer of an autograph letter from tho Em- poror-Napoleon to iftrlg William. The Em­ peror ot the French wrote \As I cannot die a t the head of my army. I lay my sword at the feet of your Majesty.” Why Napoleon H L could not die, as did thousands of his soldiers, sword in hand, with his face to the (oe, is not so clear. On receipt o f this astounding letter, there was a brief consultation between th e King, the Crown Prince, wO had come over from his hill on the arrival oi th e flag o t truce, Count Bismarck, Gen, Von Moltke, and Gen. Von Boon, -After a few minutes’ conversat­ ion, \the King sat down on a rush-bottomed chair, aud wrote a note (on another ohair held as a table by two aides-de-oamp) to the Emperor, asking him to come_neit morning to the king of Prussia's headquarters a t Ven- drosse. SHEW.)AN CONGRATULATES BIHUAKOX. While tho King was writing this note, Count Bismarck came up to Gens.. Sheridan and Forsyth, and myself, and heartily shook our hands, “Let me congratulate you moet sin- oerely, Count, ” Baid Gen, Sheridan'. “I oan only compare the surrender of Napoleon to thnt of Gen, Lee at Appomattox Conrt- fell back, advanced rapidly— bo rapidly cavalry being too closely pressed, turned suddenly round and charged desperately once again. But it was of no nse. The daya of breaking squares are over. Tho House. ” - _ \Vhen. it came my tura-to graap the Chan­ cellor's hand I could not help saying, after I had warmly congratulated him : \You eannot but feel a pride, Count Bis- marok, in having contributed so largely to the winning of to-day's victory.” 1 'Oh ! uo, my dear Sir,\ was the mild an- swor : I am no strategist, aud have nothing to do witb the winning of battles, What. I am proud of is that the Bavcrians, the Saxons, and the Wurtemborgcrs have not only been on onr sido, b a t have had so large a share— the largest share—in tho glory of the day ; that they are with ns, and not against os. That is my doing. I don’t think that French will say now that'the Sonth Germans will not fight for our common Fatherland.\ THE IMPERIAL PBIBONEB Next morning early, I started for Belgihm. As I rode along 1 suddenly came first on a knot of Chians then on two lackeyea In the green and gold Imperial livery.

Tha Prussians actually threw up earthworks OS The Iron bridge itself to protect it from the French, who more - than once-attempted early in the day to storm the bridge, in the hopo o f breaking the Bavarian communication between the right and left banks of the Meuse.

Ita comely ar­ ray was suddenly ohffingod into shapeless snd helpless crowds of-flying men. CAVALRY PTfRSUED BV INFANTRY. The moment 'the cuirassiers turned back, tho brave Prussians actually dashed for­ ward in hot pursuit a t double-quick ; in­ fantry evidently' pursuing flying cavalry. Such a thing h s s not often been recorded in the annals of war. I know not when an example to compare precisely with this has occurrod. There was no more striking episode in the battle. NEEDLE OOKS VS. CHASSBPOTS. When th* French infantry saw their csvalry thus fleeing before foot soldiars, .they in. their tunn came forward and at­ tacked tho Prussians. The Prussians waited quietly; patiently onduring a rap­ id and telling Sre from tlio Chasoepoti .until their enemies had drawn so near as to be within a taundred yards of them. Then to the flro of the Chasaopots they returned a fire as-rapid from their needle g u n i; a n d the F'ronch' infantry could no more endure th is Prussian fire than the cavalry to whose rescue - they had come. The infantry fled in its turn, a n d followed the cavalry to t h e place whence they came; that is, behind t ridge a,bout 500 yards on th e wajyto S edan where the Prussian Are could n o longer resch them.' thin blue line soon stopped the Gallic on­ set. There was n either artillery nor mitrail­ leuses, especially th e latter, on the field to cover their infantry. The position was a most im p o rtant one, and certainly worth straining every nervo to defend. One thing was clear enough, that the French infantry after once meeting the Prussians declined to try conclusions with them again, and tha.t the cavalry were seeking to encourage them by their example.— About 2 oclocls, and still other re-enforco- raantscame to the Prussians over this long disputed hill betwoen Torcy and 8 cdan to support th* regiments already established there. HAVOC AXX0KG THE BAVARIANS. All the time tlmt this great conflict wns going on under Fritz's eyes, another was fought-not less severe and aa murderous for the Bavariams as the one I have at- tcmptep to describe was for the French. -Jf there was a wnnt of mitrailleuses on the hill above Torcy. there was certainly no lack of them in the Bazeille ravine. On th a t aide .there was, for more than an hour, one continuous roar of musketry and mitrailleuses. Two Bavarian officers told me that th e loss in their regiments was terrific, nnd that it was the mitrail­ leuses whieh mnde the havoc. TAE FRENCH FALL RACK OS SEDAN. A t 2:05 in th e afternoon the French to­ tally abandoned the hill between Torey arid' Sedan, anal feTT back on The faubourg of Caval, just o u tside the ramparts nf the town. rfNow IKe'^atlFiiTTostToTrThe French,” said Prussian officers. Ono would almost have imagined that the French had heard his .words—they—lr»(l~ h a rdly -been—uttered\ when there cam-e a lull in the firing all along the line, ar rather c ircle: as such it had now become. A t 2:45 the S in g eame to th e place where I was standing. He remarked that he thought thnt the French were about to try to break out just beneath us, in front of the Second Bavarian Corps. At 8:50 Gen. Sheridan told me that the Emperor-and-L&tiis-wore-ia-SediCfiK: ------ BRAVERY OF T-BEB.WARI.tNS. At 3:20 the Bavarians below us n o t only contrived to get themselves inside the for- tifictions of Sedan, but'to maintain them­ selves there, working their way forward from house to house. About 3 there, was a great fight for tbe possession of th e ridge above Bazeille,— T h a t carried, Sedan was swept on all sides by the Prussian cannon. This point of vantage was carried at 4:40. When carried there could no longer be a shade of doubt as to the ultimate fate of Sedan. At 6:80 there arose a sudden cry among the members of the King-* staff — “Drr Kaide-r itt da !\— and then came a- loud hurrah. Soon wo hagan to look anxiously for the arrival of a flag of truce. In ten minutes more Gen. Reilly rode up to the King of Prussia. THE EMTEBOR'S, SUBRENDZB.
