Night fell while the conflict was everywhere raging.
Seite 461 - Ferozeshah and their encampment ; then, changing front to its left, on its centre, our force continued to sweep the camp, bearing down all opposition, and dislodged the enemy from their whole position. The line then halted, as if on a day of manoeuvre, receiving its two leaders, as they rode along its front, with a gratifying cheer, and displaying the captured standards of the Khalsa army.

These kept up a heavy and well-directed fire, which the practice of our far less numerous artillery, of much lighter metal, checked in some degree but could not silence. Finally, in the face of a storm of shot and shell, our infantry advanced and carried these formidable entrenchments.
Seite 462 - Peshawur, have fled with precipitation. Their camp is the scene of the most awful carnage, and they have abandoned large stores of grain, camp equipage, and ammunition. Thus has apparently terminated this unprovoked and criminal invasion of the peaceful provinces under British protection.
Seite 309 - Soldiers who were present at the battle of Waterloo shall be allowed to reckon two years in addition to their actual service, and those who were enlisted before the 1st December 1829 shall be allowed to reckon three years for two of actual service, after the age of 18, in the East and West Indies, in other than West India regiments.

Seite 14 - ... Hosken felt confident, no apology was necessary, for thus, as concisely as possible, giving his opinion before the Institution. If he might recommend any points, for the consideration of the Members, it would be, that they should exert their ingenuity, to discover the best propeller, all circumstances being considered ; as in his opinion, it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to find a propeller that should be the best under every variety of circumstance.
