very heavy fire in some oTlhese attacks they succeeded MJ breaking into the squares and cutting down the infantry. Late in the evening, Bonaparte having- caB- ed in the troops from Letpsic, and collected all liis reserves, made an attack from his left on the right of the Allies, supported by the fireof isever.ii The vivacity of this iioveiiietit made it ex- pedient to change the front of the nearest brigades on the right, and as the wh ile cavalry from the left was ordered to the right to turn this attack, and to charge it. I was not with out hopes of witnessing the destruction of Bo ,iiid rwparte and nil his army but before the cavalry could ariive, il became so dirk that nothing could he distinguished but the flashes of the guns. The allies remained in possession of the disputed v illages, and of the line on which the enemy bad stood. Orders were <fi*en to renew the attack in the tnornmg, hot the enemy did not wait tor it, and it -was judged expedient, with referenceto the general pasture of the cavalry, not to pursue. The wounded have -ill been removed across the Elbe, white the rnnnon and pri- soners taken, and theground wrested from the enemy in the action, are incontestible proofs -of the success of the allies. Both Sovereigns were in the field the whole day. The King was chiefly near the village where his troops were engaged The Emperor was repeatedly in every part of the field, where he was received with the most animat- ing cheers In every corps he approached The tire to which his person was not unfre- <]uent ly exposed,andthecasuattieswhichtook place near him, did not appear to disturb his attention from the objects to which it was directed, and which he followed without any ostentation. General Wittgenstein, with the army, is between the Kibe and the Isler, with the command of several bridges over the former. The Russian troops of all ranks fully realiz- ed the expectations 1 had formed of their bravery and steadiness, and Iheemlllatioll and spirit of patirotism which pervades the Prus- sian army, merits the highest encomium.
