Sebastopol, the stronghold of Russian power, lay'crouching by her harbour in sullen majesty. The long row of white edifices; :and the lofty spires of churches, the noble streets and massive quays, appeared plainzly in the gradually increasing morning light, and tantalised the besieger. For there -unha?niedby .the. awful tempest which the artillery of 'Franice aiid England had hurled upon it; uninjured by fire and ball; with beauty undiminished, and strength un. shakeun; .surrounded by Titantic fortifica tions, and appalling strength-there lay the Tfamous city, and still defied and laughed to scorn, the might of her beleaguerers.
