The waved rolled in with fury upoa the narrow strip of sand we yet retail ed upon the shore of France. Our only bftrr'er against the enemy was Fort Pen tLievre, which stood, a darker was?, against the dark sky. I lay upon the sand, with my sword ? my inseparable companion ? in my grasp. Suddenly, a stout was beard above the rear of the waters. 1 started up?but could see nothing. It proceeded from the di rection of the fort, and I knew that a surprise was nt le?Jt attempted, if it had not ?ucceed ed A moment's a*ony parked aero* my brow. like tlm glow of a 6erce fire. This was the only contingency I had not foreseen ; my ene my and I might be close to eacS other in the riarknnt. without ooming into contact. . My worst suspioiona were the best founded Fort Penthievro had been surprised and taken ?we were now at the mercy of the republican army All those within reach of me rose along with me, and obeying the word of command, placed themselves in order, and rushed upon the advancing enemy. The collision was tre mendous. Hoche's guns had already b<?gar to play, and in a few minutes the English squadron, which had been obliged to keep out to sea, in consequence of the tempest, an nounced their presence by the roar of their artillery. From the first I. saw that resist anco was hopeless; and that escape was al most equally so. D'Hcrvilly was mortally wounded; tambrcud, who succeeded him, was a stranger to the place, and lost his pre? ence of mind. It was a hopeless carnage, and my men fell around me in heaps Neverthe less. I assumed the command which others were unable to exercise, and contrived for some time to protect the masses ol emigrant* who, with their wives and children, were rush ing into the water to embark on boerd tae Eng lish boats. It must have been calm; for while engaged in this arduous duty, 1 took advan tage of every cannon shot fired close to mu to survey the opposite ranks in ecarch of Lcvas seur In so dark a night, the flash of the dis charge from a piece of ordnance throws an intense glare for a considerable spaae; and a 1 had habituated my eyes to take in numer '?us objects distinctly at a sudden glance, I was now, efter one or two of the 9* momenta ry surveys, able to ascertain with tolerable accuracy the order of the hostile column, and where 1 ought to look for him. 1 found that in order to confront him, I muet move to the right, or as close to the edge of the sea as pos sible. This was difficult, in the laoe cf the encmj; but finding that Sombreuil bad just come up fc> the point I defended with a fresh body of emigrants, 1 drew my exhausted men off lor a moment, and moving round a small sandy eminence, threw them once more upon the hfitile army, almost within the surf of the shoreward waves. The result was as I had anticipated Cer tain signs gave evidence of Levasseur's vicin ity. I recognised the uniform of his corps, and at last had the inexpressible satisfaction of hearing his voice, above the roar of the waves, urging on his men. By this time matters had drawn to a conclu sion The two armies were mingled together in the darkness The few boats which h*d tucceeded in gainiug the shore had oitber muk or were sheering on overloaded With fu gitives Iu all directions cries were heard of '?quarter', quarter!" a boon which fn soma i istancea was accorded by the soldiers, as the despairing emigrants or Chouans laid down their arms; though in most, these wretches were cut down without mercy. From the sea. the frightful confusion was aided by the broadsides of the British fleet, poured in upon the shore, and sweeping off friend and foe in indiscriminate slaughter. I had almost given up the hope of surviving to fulfil my mission, whan a sudden flash discovered Levasseur within five yards of me, a littlo advance! be fore his men, in the act of pointing a gun at a boat which had just quitted the snore, filled with women and ohildren. I might have rushed forward and cut him down. I do not know why 1 did not do so. 1 walked up to him. and laid my hand upon his shoulder, uttering in his ear the word " Le vasseur!" He started up from the stooping Eosture, and in an instant drew a pistol from is belt, and fired Had he not been discon ccrted, he must have killed me; as it was, the ball grazed my ribs He drew back, aghast " Coward !' cried I, " draw your sword ; 1 shall wait until you can defend yourself " We could see each other, now we were to close, by the gleaming of the cannonade Even at the desperate moment I was startled as I suddenly bceame constfous that a change bad taken placc in his appearance, llis bfaci hair had grown white. Tha confirm* tion of an original surmiso flashed across my mind. He must have existed for a greater or less period of time under the belief that, at the moment of his mortal sin, ho had fallen into the bands of the living God. " Wbyshould we fight'" he now exclaimed, in a subdued voice, " She is dead, long ago ' And buried !" I cried, holding up to Lis oyes the Golden Guillotino. ?'God! whence has that come " From the depths of the ocean, in which thy bones shall whiten ere long Thoughtest thou that thou wert to escape the Avenger of Blood, because thou hadst placed a millstone round the nock of thy socrct, and sink it in the sea ?" ?< De Martigny, thou wast my rival?thou sough tMt to strangle me-was ii not so T' With death staring him in the face, he was yearning to extract seme expression which should relieve him once for all from the rem nants of the horrible suspicion which had once haunted him.

He had just obaeved my growing faintness, and was planting his feet w oomtmence the oombat in which the chances^ began to show in his favor, when a ball from un English line of-battle ship ploughed the sand over both of us, and in Its ricochet tore Levasseur s right arm from its socket, laying the ribs of the same side bare to the We fell together?he in the agonios of dcatu, I fioin the t?ock and previous loss of blood, i I had strength left to dip my finger in the r.ool of gore between us?whether in his or mine I know not, or both mingled together? and write upon his forehead the single word? ALPUoasiHE This I did that thddovil might krow what to do with him.
