A LZSPERATE BATTLE.

The Russians had 30,000 men, we only 1,800. The odds

The frule raged from randown- It was a desperate one, and; Chakir Pacha's reply to Baker's repeated request for reinforcement* was that he had none'to give, and that we must at all cost hold the position; as if it were carried by the foe the whole of h* (Chakir Pacha'a) army, which was retreating, wotUtJ be taken in flank

Each minute of daylight seemed a year, and Baker kept looking at hi* watch, the Turk* meanwhile gazing at the sun, old Nature'* timepiece—as until nightfall it would be impossible for us to abandon the position.

Just before sunset the Ruaaians collected themselves for a supreme effort, and charged home at UwTurks. Our men burst forth with their battle-cry, and the " Ya Allah!" " Ya Allah !11 re-echoed over the mountains. The Russians cheered in response, bat their hurrahs were of no avail. Tho Mussulmans dashed at their foe. Shoulder to shoulder, there w*# no flinching on either side, and the steel was driven home. Baker ordered his bugler to sound the " Ya Allah !" and the Ottoman soldier* again took up the "Lain. They seamed poaaeeeed of superhuman energy. Each man looked as if he pos-*e*eed the strength of ten. Another charge, ana the Russians were driven back a few hundred yards. It was now too late for the enemy to make andther effort. In the dark we marched to the plain below. Here Baker, assisted by Colonel Allix, hi* aide-de-camp, who had behaved with great gallantry during the battle, mustered his little force. Out of 2,800 men more than 600 of the brave fellows had bitten the duet, nearly 400 being k#N outright. There wa* little quarter given on either side.
