Union men in Danbury determined to take down. Some thirty or forty of them, therefore, repaired to the location of the obnoxious rag, taking an American flag with them to put in its place. They surrounded the pole for this purpose, when they were attacked by a party of tories, some two hundred strong, and a general fight ensued, the weapons being spades, axes, and clubs. Being soon overpowered, though not till after a hard fight, the Union men fled, carrying away with them Andrew Knox, John Allen, and Thomas Kinney, of their party, all very badly cut about the head with spades. The first blow struck was by a peace man, who inflicted a fearful blow upon one of the above. Of the tories two were probably fatally wounded, (one report, and apparently authenticated, states that the first one named is dead, and the other beyond recovery,) named Abraham Wildman and----Gorham. The Union men of course returned home to Danbury, and the peace flag still waves. It may be mentioned as of i

expand the liquid against the sides of the chamber, and thus press outwardly the ram. See Sterhydraulic press. Hy-drau′lic pro-pel′ler. A mode of propelling vessels by the ejection of a body of water sternward. It was invented by Dr. John Allen, and described by him in 1730. See his Specimina Ichnographica. His method was to form a tunnel or pipe, open at the stern of the vessel, and by means of a pump to force water or air through it into the sea. The reaction thus occasioned woue design was put into execution upon a canal, with a boat of considerable size, and worked by pumps by manual labor, but he suggested the employment of a steam-engine, and its application to a vessel of 1,500 tons. The hydraulic propeller of Dr. Allen formed the subject of a patent to David Ramsey, in England, 1738; and Rumsey, of America, 1782. The latter ran a vessel of 50 feet long on the Potomac, and one built on his plan was launched and fitted after his death, and ran on the Thames fo

pin's boat as it existed in the imagination of M. Figuier. It is next to impossible to exaggerate the merits of M Denys Papin of Blois, but it will not be safe to warrant the illustration given by his lively countryman. The device of using wheels instead of oars, the propelling power being men or animals, was employed by the Egyptians and Romans in their war-galleys. When the Romans passed over to Sicily they were transported thither in ships moved by wheels, set in motion by oxen. Dr. John Allen, of England, in 1730, suggested the use of the backwardly discharging pump, now known as the hydraulic propeller. In 1737, Jonathan Hulls published a pamphlet in England describing a method of propelling a vessel by steam, for which he had secured a patent. He proposed placing the wheel at the stern, that being the proper place for it, because water-fowl pushed their web feet behind them. He used an atmospheric steam-engine, and obtained a rotary motion by an arrangement of cords an
