Colonel Colbourne led his regiment across under fire, sometimes sinking up to the men's middles; then, forming line beyond, they dashed up the hill, overthrowing a French regiment opposed to them, their unexpected appearance throwing Reille's forces into some confusion, while they took Taupin's masses in reverse. At the same time Picton was successful on the French left; and driving in Foy's Division, he seized the high ground in rear of Soult's position, occupied by D'Armagnac's Division, and established a battery of guns on a high knoll there, which ploughed through the French masses. Aided by these movements, the narrow neck of land in front of St. Boes was won; and the 4th and 7th Divisions, and Vivian's cavalry, with 2 batteries of artillery, were pushed through and established beyond. Simultaneously Hill (opposed at the town and bridge of Orthes by Harispe's and Villatte's Divisions under Clauset, who had a battalion guarding the ford of Souar3), unable to force the bridge, crossed the river above Souars; and, driving back the troops opposed to him, seized the heights beyond, thereby cutting off the town of Orthes, and intercepting the French retreat on Pau. There Hill, learning of the success of the other attacks from the firing, advanced along the ridge in rear of Soult's position, parallel to another ridge, which was now Soult's only line of retreat, and converging on it at Sal Spice. Both wings of Wellington's army having now joined, were forcing back the French, who were vigorously contesting every bit of ground, when the imminent danger of being cut off by Hill at Sal Spice, rendered their retrea...
