It appears from the Echo ill Arragon, that the Cadist

garri- son of Morella, the capture of which place we mentioned last week, behaved with extraordinary gallantry. The besiegers threw shells into time fortress, which made great havoc among time de- fenders. One fell into a powder-magazine, which exploded and killed fifty men. Finding it hopeless to retain possession of the place, the Carlists attempted to cut their way through the besieg- ing army, but were driven back with the loss of 600 prisoners, be- sides many killed. At length they surrendered at discretion. After all their losses, the garrison still numbered 2,500 men : so that Esraamno may boast with some reason of the capture of Morella.
