THE CLOSING SCENE. One scene more and we have finished. A year has come and gone. The English ladies and children have been recovered without harm befalling them, and English soldiers are taking that revenge of which the Colonel spoke. Havelock\and Sale, Pollock and Courtney, and others famous in Indian history, are here ; and Afghan ' treachery is being rewarded with cold steel. It is only fitting, too, that Colonel Dennie himself should be present to bear his share in the work of retribution. He is seen at his best to-day- with the light of battle on his face, dealing death with his flashing sabre, and sitting his grey charger with the grace of a centaur. He iB at the head of the regiment he loves so well— the old 13th. The British general had felt strong enough to assume the offensive, though the traitorous Ackbar's force exceeded his own by three to one, and though the latter was strongly entrenched. Dennie had pleaded hard that his regiment should be allowed to lead the attack ...
