The previous reports of the marine attack wpou the batteries on Ro anoke lUnd and thj repulse of the ex pedition. it seam#, were correct, but a vnbwqment demonstration, it appears, proved entirely successful. The report# of iht light, official and otherwise, show that, after much hard fighting and great loss of life oo both cities, Roanoke In land has been captured and the whole Confederate forse, numbering about 2500 men. taken prisoners.

Charlotte Ovrd.ijr d’Armont. ; a grand daughter uf tbs celebrated Cor -1 ucille. Though blood, she 'jhad keen nurtured iu tbo school of ud ij versify, her father blng too aristocratic 11 to work, and too poor to live comfortably : without work. In early life she was j placed in a munaMery in Caen, where h*-r ; w hole future destiny was influenced by < j the peculiar (ii-cipliae ii whiiu she was; I exposed, and thy ideas of duty which! j were inculcated. In the dreams of th* j ; cloister her ardent soul became fired with : | the ambition of exalted deeds, which should reader her a benefactress to her i race. | After thus living fer six years, the Ja- j Cubin government suppressed the convent, I J and she took up lur residence with- an | j clicrly relative in Vies, where sku re i tuaiuud until she was nearly twenty -five jycacs of ago. Living amidst the terrible j scenes of the revolution, wh<-re the guil j loliue was in constant exercise, and the ; meb daily demanding the blood of new ; victims, her thoughts natn-ally lamed to the possibility of stopping these horrors. She mingled as muck as possible with the iiiroudists, to "ascertain who were j {the principal agents in those Woes which ♦ were deflating her native land. Though Datitou and Kobei-plena were then Is their ascendency, the sanguinary delirium of Marat rendu red Kim more j conspicuous to the mass of the people. I who saw ’‘tyranny and freedom in one I i man’? hand only.” To Marat, then, the I j yes of Charlotte Corday were directed. l as the one who was deluging the repub* j lie iu blood. She thought that his death j would -arrest this flood and save the lives of thousands. It bad b>wu announced that he bad proscribed twenty-five hun dred victims iu Lyons, throe thousand in Marseilles, twenty-eight thousand in I Paris, and three hundred thousand iu i Brittany. Conspiracies • were being or i gainst d all over the republic fur the over throw of the bluody-ttiiroty tyrant. Th** lover t<f ('harlot** Corday. whom shi- I idolized with all live purity and fervor of 1 her impassioned nature, .was engaged in l nne of thoae conspiracies, which, if suc cessful. would cost the lives of thousands, and, xf UdMiccetydul, would only consoli date the power of the kyraut. Charlotte resolved to free France of the monster at| the certain sacrifice of her own life. All th-i energies of her being were now aroused for thy accomplishment of this i oljeot. It was no easy mutter for un ob -1 soure young lady to get access to the ty | rust so aa to bo able to assassinate him. i She, however, formed her plans so eau ! tiously, as to guard against every con | ceivahle cause af failure. Not an indi- I vidusl was admitted tu fer eonfid> nc. ! Religious enthusiasm contributed its strength to her enterprise, fur she doubted not that she was engaged in a holy undertaking. Her well read Bible contained a pencil mark around the pas-’ cage; ** I • ’Judith west forth from the city adorn jed with a marvellous beauty, which the i Lord bad bestowed on her to deliver Is -1 rasl ” j Having made all her arangements. she I informed her friends that she was going to I England to seek that asylum which Prance I no longer afforded. A few trifling me mentoes w-rs conferred upon hsr inti* mate acquaintance*. and. on the Hth of] July. 1703. she took the diligice for! Paris Her whole worldly possessionst I consisted of a small pared of clothes, auU ! a volume of Plutarch’s Lives. Charlotte was tall aud dignified, with profuse black hair, and kmg eye (ashes, which seeming even darker than her clustering ringlets, gave great depth to her piercing eyes. Her ebcaks were well filled, and had &hs freshness and the health i i oPycuith, and were often crimsoned with the bhifh of excitement or modesty. Her daxaiing beauty, winning manners, and viva city- in conversation, quite won the hearts of her fellow travellers, who •trove unsuccessfully to draw from her the object of her journey, sod her address. One young geftticnaa became so enam ored that he begged permission So solicit f Uer relatives her baud in marriage. She pleasantly repelled the honor, but promised that be should know more of her ere long. After a twu days ride, she arrived at ( Pahs, and weut to a hotel, where vM ah j lowed herself a-day’s rest, that her fe-H I cttitics might be iu the best condition, aHe hd no desire to figure as u heroine, t It was not for feme that she wished to, saeriAee her life. lm (he elsittff she had learned (he Imsdh nf relLahecg attun. nod i rather desired oblivion than notoriety, as i mure pleasing In God.
