THE CIRCASSIAN CHIEF, BY W.H.G. KINGSTON.

Volume 1, Chapter I.

Between the ancient and modern capitals of Russia, a fine broad road now

affords an easy communication, although, but a few years ago, the

traveller who would journey from one city to the other, was compelled to

proceed at a slow pace, along a wild track, over rough stony ground,

through swamps, under dark forests, and across bleak and unsheltered

plains.

The sun had already begun his downward course towards the more happy,

and free lands of the far West, shedding forth his summer rays on the

heads of two horsemen, who pursued their way in a southerly direction,

along the yet unimproved part of the road, to which we have alluded.

Their pace, as the nature of the ground over which they travelled

required, was slow--their attention being chiefly occupied in guiding

their steeds between the many deep ruts and cavities, which lay in their

path.

The tone of their voices, their noble bearing, and general appearance,

bespoke them at a glance, to belong to a station far above the common

rank of life. They were dressed alike, in a half military uniform;

their arms consisting solely of pistols, and heavy riding whips the

latter even no despicable weapon when wielded by a strong arm.

The travellers might have been taken for brothers, but that the dark

flashing eye, black hair, clear olive-complexion, and regular Grecian

features of the one, offered too great a contrast to the laughing blue

eye, light complexion and hair of the other, whose features, though

inferior to those of his companion, were not deficient in manly beauty.

There appeared to be scarcely any difference in their ages, both having

emerged from boyhood, into that joyous time of life, when the man has

completely shaken off what he then considers the irksome trammels of his

childish days; happily, unconscious how soon in their stead, advancing

years may too probably bring around him the many cares, and

disappointments that flesh is doomed to bear, from manhood to the grave.

The last mentioned of the two wayfarers, was in reality, however, the

elder; although the light laugh he occasionally indulged in, and his

debonair manner, gave him a younger look, than his more serious

companion. They were followed at a short distance by a most primitive

looking, low, square vehicle, containing their baggage; drawn by a

shaggy little pony, and driven by a man almost as rough looking and

unpolished as the animal itself. A low crowned, broad-brimmed hat of

felt, covered a head of sandy hair, while a huge long beard of the same

hue hung down upon his breast: the twinkle of his light grey eye, and a

smile on his lips, giving a good humoured expression to his flat, and

otherwise unmeaning features.

His dress consisted of a long coat of coarse cloth, buckled round the

waist by a leathern belt, and boots of the latter material, untanned,

reaching just above his ankles. He urged on his little animal, as fast

as it could travel, over the rugged road, whistling, as he lashed his

whip, and whirled it round his head--his thoughts evidently not

extending beyond his immediate occupation.

The scenery through which the road led, was probably as dreary and

uninteresting as any to be found in Russia; a country, which can boast

of but few natural beauties, throughout its widely extended territory.

It ranged over a landscape, as far as the eye could reach, consisting of

a dry uncultivated plain, with here and there, a few clumps of stunted

trees struggling into existence upon the arid and ungrateful soil--fit

emblems of the miserable, and enslaved peasantry of the country.

The travellers had continued on their course through scenery equally

unpicturesque for some distance, when gradually it began to improve,

exhibiting a greater number of trees, and a brighter verdure. A

proposal was then made by one of them, to which the other readily

assented; this was to urge forward the driver of their baggage-cart,

with his charge to Tver, a town they purposed resting at for the night,

while they followed at their leisure, through the forest they were

approaching. The servant was summoned by the name of Karl, and ordered

to proceed with as much speed as his weary beast was capable of, in

order to secure a lodging and to prepare supper, the materials for which

he carried, together with their bedding for the night--a necessary

precaution, the inns at the small towns in Russia, affording very

miserable accommodation.

Karl signified his comprehension of the order and willingness to obey

it, by a few guttural sounds, and several low bends of the neck; when

flourishing his long whip, he bestowed a few additional lashes on the

flanks of the pony, who reluctantly started into a trot, dragging the

rude little vehicle over ruts and stones after a most uncomfortable

fashion.

The cavaliers then followed quietly on, at the slow pace which the heat

of a warm spring day made most agreeable, each occupied with his own

thoughts; those of the younger of the two appearing to be rather of a

sombre hue, as occasionally a shade of melancholy would pass across his

expressive features; while, at other times, his bright eye would kindle

with animation, and his lip would curl, as if some strong feelings were

working within his bosom. His friend, however, endeavoured to amuse

himself, and to enliven the journey with snatches of gay French songs,

which he carolled forth in a rich, clear, and cheerful voice; and he now

and then broke into a merry laugh. At length, weary apparently of his

own thoughts, he exclaimed--

"Thank Heaven, Ivan, my friend, that we are for ever free from dull and

laborious studies, and those odious college drills. Bah! I have so

worn out my eyes and the small portion of brains I was ever endowed

with, by reading, I will not look into a book for a year to come. We

shall have no more of those sham fights, but henceforth may expect every

day to be called upon to engage in the honour and glory of real warfare.

What say you, Ivan, does not your pulse beat with quicker throbs in

anticipation of the glorious scenes of battle and conquest, which we may

soon find ourselves engaged in? What say you, shall we flesh our maiden

swords in the carcases of the turbaned infidels of Turkey? They are

said to be no despicable enemies to contend with; or if perchance our

regiment should be out of favour at head-quarters, we may be sent to try

our mettle against the mountain barbarians of the Caucasus. I hear that

there is enough of hard fighting with them; more perhaps than is at all

times agreeable. It is said, indeed, that the Emperor considers a

campaign in the Caucasus an excellent field for the display of the

military talents of those, whose ideas of that phantom called `Liberty'

do not exactly coincide with his own. If such be the case, I shall not

be much surprised if we some day receive an intimation that our valuable

services are required to strengthen his armies in that distant and

savage part of the globe. What say you, Ivan, to this notion? Do you

not eagerly long to be wielding your sword against the savage hordes of

those unchristianised barbarians of Circassia?"

The brow of Ivan had contracted during these observations, which were

uttered in a light, careless tone, and he had several times attempted to

interrupt his friend; now, that the latter had concluded, he indignantly

exclaimed:

"I thought you knew me better, Thaddeus, than to make a proposition of

that nature to me. Never will I unsheathe my sword to aid the cause of

tyranny and injustice--such vile work I leave to slaves and hirelings.

Should Russia herself be assailed, most willingly would I shed my blood

for her defence, as in such a glorious struggle as that when she so

gallantly beat back the aspiring conqueror of Europe from her

territories; but never will I lend my arm to assist in subjugating a

free and independent people, over whom she has not even the shadow of a

right to claim command. Rather would I break my weapon into fragments,

and forswear all hope of advancement in the world."

A smile was rising on the lips of Thaddeus at this sudden declaration of

principles, so unusual in Russia; but it was quickly checked on his

perceiving the stern expression of his friend's countenance.

"Can you yourself, Thaddeus, not feel for the oppressed?" Ivan went on

to say; "you, whose native land has so grievously suffered from the

power of Russia; you, who have such deep cause to rue the tyranny of her

iron sway! Then, as you love me, never again give utterance to the

subject you have so thoughtlessly touched upon, for it is one on which I

cannot trust my feelings."

"I spoke but in jest," answered the other, "and most sincerely do I

applaud your sentiments; but alas! I fear the principles you profess,

when put in practice, will answer but badly in this country, and are

such as it is more prudent to suppress. For my own part, I confess

that, though I have a high respect for the liberty of all men--

especially for my own, I have such an innate love of fighting, that,

provided an opportunity offer of exercising my propensity, I care little

in what cause I draw my sword."

"For shame, Thaddeus!" cried Ivan, indignantly. "I blush to hear one,

whom I call my friend, and who I trusted was formed for nobler purposes,

confess himself ready to become the willing tool of a despot; for to

this does your declaration amount."

Thaddeus laughed, and gave a shrug of his shoulders, as he replied--

"Your emancipation from college, my dear Ivan, has, in truth,

wonderfully expanded the liberality of your sentiments; and it is indeed

fortunate that the idea had not there occurred to you of giving lectures

on the rights and independence of man; they would have wonderfully

edified your hearers among the cadets, and made most admirable subjects

and soldiers of them for the Emperor; but your exertions in the cause of

liberty would not have gained you much credit in higher quarters."

"Your foolish bantering," answered the excited Ivan, "is but a poor

apology for your want of liberal principles. Nor am I the madman you

wish to make me appear. You well know how much I detested the thraldom

in which we were kept at college, and that I pursued my studies with

redoubled efforts and perseverance, in order to emancipate myself as

soon as possible from that irksome and hated state. To you, as a tried

and only friend, I have now opened my mind, trusting to have had a

hearer who would cordially agree in my sentiments; but it appears that I

have been grievously mistaken, and I have learned a bitter lesson--to

trust in no living soul!"

The tones of the speaker's voice shewed that his anger had risen to such

a degree, that a reply in the former bantering strain would probably

have caused a breach in the friendship of the two young men. Thaddeus,

therefore, wisely endeavoured to calm his friend's anger by

acknowledging the justness of his sentiments, and by promising to adopt

them himself if possible, when suddenly their attention was roused by a

sound, which seemed like a human voice shrieking for help, as from a

distance the breeze conveyed it faintly to their ears. They had now

entered an extensive tract of open forest, the trees generally scattered

over the ground at some distance from each other, yet in many places

clustering together, surrounded by dense masses of thick and tangled

underwood.

The young men seemed mutually to have banished the feelings raised by

their late warm discussion, and instantly urged their horses at full

speed in the direction whence they fancied the sound had proceeded, when

a second faint cry, though appearing to come from a greater distance,

assured them that they were following the right course.

Their horses were greatly impeded by the rough and uncertain nature of

the ground, and often they were obliged to make them leap over the furze

and straggling underwood, at the risk of descending into some unseen

cavity, or of plunging into a morass. Notwithstanding the numerous

obstacles, they hurried on at increased speed, eager to render their

assistance; for they were confident that the piercing cry they had heard

must have been uttered by a woman in distress. They were just emerging

from a clump of trees among which they had been entangled, when again

the cry was heard, loud and distinct, and at that instant they caught

sight of two horsemen galloping among the trees, one of whom bore a

female in his arms; these were followed by two men on foot running at

full speed. It was the work of some few minutes before they could

disengage themselves from the thickets and brushwood, a delay which

afforded the party ahead of them an opportunity of increasing their

distance; but, urging their horses with whip and spur over every

obstacle, and gaining the more clear around, they ere long overtook the

men on foot, who, seeing their rapid approach, shouted loudly to their

companions to return to their support. The latter, however, in lieu of

turning to render assistance, redoubled their speed, intent upon escape,

and regardless of the loud cries of their overtaken followers. These,

finding escape impossible, rushed forward to seize the bridles of their

pursuers' horses, but were so effectually attacked by the heavy whips of

the two cavaliers, that they were fain, not only to loose their hold,

but were completely disabled from following.

Having thus got rid of these antagonists, the two friends set off in

pursuit of the mounted ruffians, who were forcibly carrying away the

female; her continued cries for assistance, indicating the track they

had taken.

The scene had become highly exciting. Before them lay an open forest

glade, and it was now a trial of speed. The noble animals urged to

their utmost, dashed onwards, appearing to partake of the feelings which

animated their riders.

The ravishers, on the near approach of their pursuers, turned on their

saddles, each levelling a pistol at his selected man; these, fearful of

wounding the female, would not venture to use their arms. The

unencumbered horseman discharged his pistol at Thaddeus, as the latter

approached; but, at the speed they rode, the aim was uncertain, and the

ball flew wide of its mark; before the villain had time to use a second,

the young Pole struck him on the head with the butt-end of his whip,

with so powerful and well directed a blow, as to force him from the

saddle, from which he fell heavily to the earth.

At the same moment, his companion, on Ivan's attempting to seize his

horse's bridle, aimed a pistol at his breast; but that movement leaving

his victim free, she quickly disengaged her arm from the folds of the

cloak which shrouded her, and struck aside the barrel of the weapon

levelled at her rescuer; the impulse, though feeble, was sufficient to

divert its deadly aim; the ball nevertheless grazed Ivan's side. The

latter succeeded, notwithstanding, in grasping the bridle of his

antagonist's horse, and the same delicate hand which had but a moment

previously, in all probability saved his life, promptly snatched the

pistol yet remaining in the ruffian's belt, and cast it to the ground.

The man who had fired at Ivan, was now obliged to defend himself, and

was accordingly compelled to relax his hold of the girl, who, when

falling from the saddle, was fortunately caught by Thaddeus. The latter

had thrown himself from his horse to prevent her sustaining any serious

injury, which, closely engaged as Ivan was with his adversary, he had no

power to avert.

Giddy from the pain of his wound, and loss of blood, Ivan loosened his

grasp of the rein he had seized; this being perceived by his antagonist,

he plunged his spurs into his horse's flanks, and dashed off at headlong

speed into the depths of the forest, where pursuit was entirely useless.

The young men, left victors of the field, now turned their attention to

the fair creature whom their gallantry had so opportunely rescued; and

well did the extreme beauty of her form and features merit the looks of

surprise and admiration with which they regarded her.

Her appearance was indeed unusual, and though they saw at once, that she

was not one of the exalted and proud ones of the land, they internally
