ation are in close contact with each other and with the sides of the box. The arrows indicate the direction of the current. Similar devices are shown under rotary blower ; rotary pump. In Cochrane's meter for measuring liquids under pressure, the measurement is effected by a pivoted vessel resembling a double scoop, which tilts and discharges when either side is full. A bent lever below this is tilted back and forth at each movement of the scoop, actuating the registering mechanism. Atwell's cylindrical case has a piston E which turns on an axial shaft communicating motion to the register, and carrying an arm which, at the end of each stroke, changes a cylindrical valve F2 so as to cause the water to alternately enter and discharge from the measuring-chamber at opposite sides of the internal partition C. Pulsating-piston meter. In Fig. 2972, a water-wheel within a pipe is connected to a register to indicate the flow of water. The flow is regulated by a sliding-valve.

1,000 men, General Cox, of Reno's corps, led the brigades of Scammon and Crook, stated by Cox as less than 3,000. The Thirteenth North Carolina, under Lieutenant-Colonel Ruffin, and the Twentieth, under Col. A. Iverson, were furiously assailed on the left. Both regiments were under tried and true soldiers, and they received the assault calmly. Lieutenant Crome ran up a section of artillery by hand, and opened with effect upon the Twentieth North Carolina; but the skirmishers under Captain Atwell of that regiment killed the gallant officer while he was serving as a gunner. The Federal effort was to turn the left where the Thirteenth was posted. General Hill, in Battles and Leaders There General Garland, who had been urged by Colonel Ruffin not to expose himself so needlessly, was killed. Upon the fall of Garland, Colonel McRae assumed command, and ordered the two regiments on the left to close in to the right. This order was not received, or it was found to be impossible of e

Cadet Corps, thus corrects the statement made by Captain Bruce, that the Cadets gave way, and gives tribute to his martyred boy comrades, Cabell, Atwell, McDowell, Steward, Jefferson, Jones, Crockett and Wheelwright. Further, the Cadet Battalion fired directly into the battery, while Captain Bruce states his regiment, the 51st, fired obliquely into; and that the Cadets did capture it. As to the percentage of loss of the 51st Regiment, which Captain Bruce states as five per cent.—the Cadet percentage was twenty-five per cent. As to halts of the Cadets, charged by Captain Bruce—one is accounted for by an intervening ravine, when the
