e rear in his expected retreat. Two of the detachments mistook each other in the night, and engaged in a skirmish, in which two men were killed and eight wounded. The Zouaves, instead of following immediately upon the heels of the fugitive rebels, as contemplated by Butler, turned back, and fled precipitately on hearing the firing in front of their own reserve line. On the next day they again moved forward and attacked the force at Big Bethel, Colonel McGruder having meantime arrived with Cary's battalion of infantry. The whole force engaged on the Confederate side was 800 North Carolinians and 400 Virginians; on the Federal, 3,500, with 1,500 to 2,500 in reserve. After preliminary skirmishing for about two hours, and an attack that lasted two and a half hours longer, the enemy retreated in great confusion, with a loss of probably 50 killed and 300 wounded, and were so hotly pursued by our cavalry that they scattered guns, haversacks and knapsacks till they crossed a bridge and s

Gen. John Stark of New Hampshire, who commanded the New Hampshire troops in this section, occupied the house until after the Evacuation of Boston. Generals Lee and Sullivan were also stationed here during the war, and there is no doubt that at times General Washington made his headquarters here. From a look-out on the roof between the huge chimneys Mollie Stark watched the Evacuation of Boston, March 17, 1776. Occupants of the Royall House since the Revolutionary War were, in 1778, Colonel Cary of Charlestown, at a rental of two hundred pounds per year. On account of Isaac Royall being an absentee from the Colony, his estate was held by the Colony until disposed of in 1804. In 1779 the General Court ordered all confiscated estates to be sold, but Royall's was not on the list, and later on the estate was turned back to the heirs for $1.00. In 1790 William Woodbridge kept a boarding and day school in the house, having at one time forty-two boys and ninety-six girls. Th
ent for the sale of Hawley's Improved Cylinder Gas Burners, and is prepared to put them up at the shortest notice, and on the most reasonable terms. The advantages of these Burners are: To prevent blowing and waste of gas, to give a more clear and uniform light, to regulate the quantity consumed with the full head turned on to any desired amount, and thus to save at least twenty-five per cent, over the ordinary Burners. Mr. J. F. Brows, in charge of the Washington City Gas Works, has certified that they are unhesitatingly the best Burners he has seen during his connection of twelve years with those works; and the Superintendent of the Richmond Gas Works asserts that he has tried them, and that they save at least twenty per cent over other Burners. Thankful for past favors, the subscriber invites orders for all work in his line, feeling assured that he can give entire satisfaction as to quality and price. Chas. H.

Dead PhŒbe Cary. We are face to face, and between us here Is the love we thought could never die; Why has it only lived a year? Who has murdered it — you or I? No matter who — the deed was done by one or both, and there it lies: The smile from the lip forever gone, And darkness over the beautiful eyes. Our love is dead, and our hope is wrecked; So what does it profit to talk and rave, Whether it perished by my neglect, Or whether your cruelty dug its grave! Why should you say that I am to blame, Or why should I charge the sin on you? Our work is before us all the same, And the guilt of it lies between us two. We have praised our love for its beauty and grace, Now we stand here, and hardly dare To turn the face-cloth back from the face, And see the thing that is hidden there. Yet look! ah, that heart has beat its last, And the beautiful life of our life is o'er, And when we have buried and left the past, We two, together can walk no more. You might
