TtUC BATTLE Of WATERLOO. A few month* siooe I vu standing on the field of Waterloo, on the anniversary of that e great battle. The fields were waving with the ripening grain, just u thej were on that memorable morning, before being trodden down by the charging squadrons Aj 1 stood where Wellington had stood, on the ridge oceupied by the Engiiih lines, and surveyed the entire field, and looked down on the narrow valley where the fate of all Europe was once pat up and battled for, a world of conflicting emotions struggled for the mastery within me. The magnificence and pomp of that stern array was before me. and my ear seemed distinctly to eatoh the first cannon shot that opened the confiiet. * * * The great battle of Earope was to be fought All its kir.g* stood looking on with breathless interest, for their thrones were at stake. The fMlinni nf tknan tan vrnit militarr <*hiaft?ins themselves, u they thus for the first time stood face to faoe, and battled for a continent, were stirred The British veteran, wiping the sweat from his brow, exalaimed, "O that Blucher or sight would come!" The next moment an immense body of French cavalry came thundering down oo one of the English squares. It had already become weakened by the loss of whoU ranks which tba French artillery had mowed down, but withstood the desperate bock with true bravary. The French oame down at a plunging trot, then breaking into a gall* p fell like a rock hurled back from a I mountain, they recoiled from the shock. Driven to deeperation by the repeatedly foiled attempts, they stopped their horses, aod coolly walked them around that brave square, and whenever a man fell dashed in Suaft desperate resolution, such recklessness of life, began, at length, to tell on the conflict. The square began to shake and waver, when Weilfngton came dashing up with his guard; they opened and he wa* in their bosom. The chief was in their keeping?his fate voluntarily thrown into their hands, tho*e British hearts could not yield. Rank after rank fell, but not a man stirred from his footsteps The French At lanirth trava it nn. and retired tn thair ruiai. tion Again: on separate squares, were those 1 terrific charge* made, and again, as - they wavered, did Wellington fling himaelt in their < midst. " i Thai, from 11 in the morning until 4 o>lock c in the evening had the battle raged, when a dark object, was seen to emerge from a distant c wood. Larger and larger it grew till a whole " oolomn stood revealed, with banners waving 8 in the breeze. Blutcher and his Prussians haa ' come ! Both armies saw that the hour had ar- ? rived for a final issue. Banaparte then rode * up to his old and well-tried Imperial Guard, ) that had net been in battle all day. Placing ( himself at their head, he led them half way ' down the slope, when he halted and addressed c them in his impetuous and fiery manner He J told them that the fate of the battle and that 1 of France waj in their hands. He was answered by those devoted hearts. ' The Eupt- * ror forever"' with a shout that rang over the d storm of battle, and was heard along the Brit- J ish lines. Then he placed them under Ney, ' with orders to force the British center, and * prevent the inaction of Bluoher with the allied c forces. < That hitharte-invincible guard oame down la beautiful order and array, and with hearts c burning with high hopes. They knew that ' their Emperor and the civilised world were 1 looking. Tbej carried throne* and kings aa d they went. They needed nothing to fire their 0 steady, oourage. No dram, er trumpet, or I martial atrain oheered them on. No bugle 0 sounded the oharge. In perfect order and ' dead silence they moved over the plain. Abeve them soared the French eagle no power had ( ever yet wrested from their gra*p, and on them 1 waa the eye of Bonaparte. The allied army ' saw with awe and dread the approach of that * nnoonquerable legion. The terror of Europe 1 waa on the march. For a moment the firing ceased along the lines. The battle was hushed. The muffled tread of that magnificent le- J gion alone waa heard. The sudden calm was , but momentary. The artillery again opened i like a volcano on the foe. Whole ranks went ; down before the destructive fire, yet they fal- I tered not for a moment. I Over their fallen comrades, with the same * steady front, they moved on, across the valley and up the slope Before their eool, resistless , charge the English lines melted like frostwork. ' Tbey took the last fire of the artillery fall oa ' their bosoms, theo walked over the oanaon, i arfillervmen and all. On. on. Ilk* m. nai>tl?a> wave they swept, carrying everything down i in their paasage, till they approached within a i few rods of where Wellington stood. All I seemed lost. when a rank of men who had lain flat on their faces behind a low ridge of earth, ] suddenly heard the ringing order'-Up, Guard*, ] and at 'em!" They started up as from the ' bowel* of the earth, and poured in their destructive fire in the very faces of the mangled ' Guard. They recovered from this discharge as I if smitten with a sudden blow. A second and third followed. They reeled and staggered a moment, and then turned and fled. The battle waa over. The thunder of the first cannon came at intervals on the night air. telling where Blucher < trod down the foe. Wellington had left to him the pursuit, and waa leading back his weary and bleeding army over the battle field. The fall round moon was riding the quiet ' heavens, lighting ap the mangled masses of human flesh that weighed down the field Here < aa epaulet, there a shivered sword fl?sbed back in it* beams Groans loaded the air, while a 1 death-shriek came at intervals on the air. 1 Wellington wept. The excitement and rage of the battle was over, and his heart sickened at ' the awful scene before him. On the surface of two square miles it was ascertained that fifty . thousand men and horses were lying. Uviow Mn Huso with a wrap* Vixi ? Stephen Luneford, of Crawford county, was taken by lire secessionists on Monday night, and suspended by the nook with m grape Tine. Hi* executioners, supposing him as good as 1 dead, left him?but he had strength enough to bdIooscd hi* hands, which were tied in front of him with a bridle rein, and. with a powerful effort drew his jack-knife from bis pocket and eut himself loose. The outrage took plaoe four miles from Bourbon Station, and the names of hi* captors were Ephralm D. Harris, W. R. Roach, Win. Andrew, and Harrison and John Hanael.

Borne peraona, whether timorous or uoinformd, have shrunk baok somewhat aghast at the rospeot of a $500,000,000 loan, with the poaibility of its being doubled or trebled by a ontinuance of the war. bach persona may be eaaaured by comparing our means and probhie exertions with those of Qreat Britain in ler tremendous struggle with France and the lalf of Europe, for twenty-three years, or rom 1793 to 1818. We condense and set down d the neareat millions a few of the most promnent statistics of that continental war. At the commencement of the war, entered ipon by England against the principles and fishes of at least one-third of the nation, the >opulation of England, Wales, and Scotland iu aomewhat leas than ten millions. Ireland nay be "counted out'" as being disorderly ma reoeinoa*, ana requiring a guard over itelf rather than furnishing men and monej for be strife. Daring these twenty-three years, he whole outlay of the British Government vas $8,500,000,000?or, stating it in more strikng form, eighty-flve hundred million dollars ; core than doable the whole property valuaion of Great Britain then, and nearly as much is that of the United States at present. Nearly me-half this enormous sum, or $4,183,000,000 raa expended on the war alone: $1,924,000,000 'or the army; $1,611,000,600 for the naty ; sio6,000,000 for munitions of war; $263,000,000 or subsidies?in plainer phrase, for hiring oreigners to do their fighting. The yearly outlay, in all, averaged $370 000,000, and for he war, whioh was utmost continuous, $182,>00.000 And this immense expenditure was lot. as in our case, made at home, so that the uoney, merely passing fiom hand to hand, vould still remain in the possession and active ise of the nation; on the contrary, a large part >f it, probably more than one-half,was laid oat ind permanently lost in continental purchases, l et, ander the pressure of this tremendous oad, England straggled through the contest, iot only with steps scarce staggering, exoept n two or three years of bad crops, and in the ixed suspension of specie payment by the National Bank, bat with a large increase in tho mm total of her wealth, and an advance in al - <*? v.ot; uiauvu ui luuuBiniti exeruon. The specie was continuously and largely Irawn from the vsulta, till, in 1797, when the loin was reduced to fire and a half millions of lollars, the frightened directors were relieved >y ? temporary permission of the Privy Council to suspend specie payments. The suspenion was afterwards legalized by Parliament, uid continued by fresh enaotments to tho year During the first twenty years of this uspension the entire gold mintage was but ifty-five millions of dollars, while in the seven rears ensuing it was one hundred and fifteen nillion* of dollars. In one single year?the ast?of that great war, the government expenlitare was six hundred and forty-nine millions if dollars, while the specie in the Bank of Engand was but little more than S10,000,000. If it be asked how England not only stood ip, but mainly prospered, against this proligioui drain on her resources for twenty-three rears, the answer lies in the faot of her vast mprovementa in machinery, whieh enabled ler to manufacture for all nations, while her lomination of the sea gave her the outward ind inward oommerce of the world.
