otsylvania Court-house, which appeared in a previous edition, has been corrected in the edition before us. A military biography of Stonewall Jackson. By Colonel John Esten Cooke. With an appendix (containing an account of the Inauguration of Foley's statue), by Rev. J. Wm. Jones. D. Appleton & Co., New York. Cooke's Life of Jackson was originally published during the war, and was rewritten, and republished in 1866. The enterprising publishers have brought out a new edition with an Appendix added, which contains a full account of the Inauguration of Foley's statue, including the eloquent address of Governor Kemper, and the noble oration of Rev. Dr. Moses D. Hoge. The book is gotten up in the highest style of the printer's art, the engravings add to its attractiveness, and we hear it is meeting with a large sale. It is to be regretted that the publishers did not give Colonel Cooke the opportunity of revising and correcting his work, for while the book is very readable, an
Mount Sterling, Ky., June 17. The expedition against Pete Everett's gang of guerrillas has returned. They were the Eighth and Ninth Michigan cavalry, and the Tenth Kentucky cavalry, the two former under Colonel De Courcy, the latter under Major Foley. The rebels were about two hundred and fifty strong. They immediately, after committing their depredations at Maysville, broke for the mountains. The Tenth, under Major Foley, went as far as Fleminsburgh, and finding that they had escaped, Major Foley, went as far as Fleminsburgh, and finding that they had escaped, pushed on to overtake them. In the mean time the Eighth and Ninth Michigan cavalry had gone by the way of Owingsville to cut them off. The Tenth overtook them at Triplitt's Bridge last evening, some twenty miles east of the former place. In the mean time Colonel De Courcy, with the Eighth and Ninth regiments, had got on before them and formed in a line of battle on the bluff facing the bridge across the creek. The rebels being ignorant of the force in their front, and supposing those in th

to proceed from Camp Shady Springs, scout the hills, and capture, if possible, the notorious Capt. Foley and his band of bushwhackers. After a march of over eighteen hours, the company surrounded CCapt. Foley's camp, but found the bird had flown. After destroying all the effects, they started to join the regiment which was still advancing. When they arrived at Clark's Hollow, five miles from surprise of all, they found themselves surrounded, and before they could retire to the house Capt. Foley's company rounded the point and came within forty yards of our line. The murderous bushwhackrt to deceive, by first saying they were Bill Richmond's company, a band of loyalists. This man Foley closely resembles Richmond. The ruse was soon discovered, and at once a volley from the whole cl back to the house, Lieut. Bottsford assigning squads to the three apartments in the house. Capt. Foley, on discovering that we were after him, sent hastily to Princeton Court-House for three compa
destruction of the pontoon-bridge and train at Falling Waters in July, 1863, was one of the most daring exploits of the war, and the credit of it belongs mainly to Leonard Grenewald, chief of the Gray Eagle Scouts, and formerly of the Jessie Scouts. During previous trips he had ascertained the strength of the ground and location of the bridge, and finally obtained from General French a detail of two hundred men from the First Virginia and Thirteenth and Fourteenth New-York cavalry, under Major Foley and Lieutenant Dawson, to undertake its destruction. They arrived at the Potomac in the morning, just at daylight, and found the character of the bridge to be part trestle-work with pontoons in the centre, which were carefully floated out every evening and taken to the Virginia shore, rendering the bridge useless for the night. Lieutenant Dawson and Grenewald then swam the river, and brought back several pontoons, with which they ferried over some forty of the detachment, being all that
s any censure on my part, but they have, at all times, inspired me with a great deal of confidence by their readiness and willingness to obey my commands. Captain R. M. Gilmore has proven himself to be a gallant and efficient officer, being ever present where duty called him. I regret exceedingly the loss of Lieutenant W. C. Adams and Louis W. Little, Lieutenant and Adjutant of the regiment, who were beneficial to me on every occasion where true bravery and good counsel were required. Sergeants Foley, Emery, Pepper, and Gilmore are worthy the praise due good soldiers, and I would recommend them for promotion. They have each been in command of a company since leaving Marietta. Yours very respectfully, etc., J. T. Forman, Captain Commanding Regiment. December 4.--I took command of the regiment, as Captain Forman was unable longer to do duty. We moved in the rear of the ambulancetrain toward Waynesboro. We had not gone very far, however, when the Second brigade became engag

No farther description is given. Neither of these appear to have been brought into practical use, and were probably soon forgotten. Machinery for splitting rods for nail-making was first introduced in Sweden. The mode of construction and operation was ascertained by a man named Foley, of Stourbridge, England, who traveled to Sweden and fiddled his way into the affections of the workmen at the mills, where he took mental notes of the machinery and brought them to England, where he established a factory. In July, 1790, Thomas Clifford patented in England a machine for making nails from the prepared rod by drawing it between rollers having cavities corresponding to the shape of the nail; and in December of the same year he patented a process for drawing bars or plates to

An apparatus of this kind is said to have been introduced by Godfrey Bochs, 1590. It is related that a man named Foley, a fiddler, living near Stourbridge, first introduced slitting machinery into England from Sweden, where its employment gave great advantages to the Swedish nail-makers over their English brethren. He visited Sweden, and fiddled his way into the iron-works, where he managed to pick up a knowledge of the methods employed. Returning to England, he, with associates, erected a slittingmill, but when everything was completed the machinery would not work. Nothing discouraged, Foley revisited Sweden in his role of fiddler, when he succeeded in obtaining lodgings within the works, where he had an opportunity of making rough drawings of the machinery, with which he returned to England and put his mill in successful operation.

They do not come-we are lost! and frantically waves his sabre. He has not long to wait. The delay of the rest of the Guard was not from hesitation. When Captain Foley reached the lower corner of the wood and saw the enemy's lines, he thought a flank attack might be advantageously made. He ordered some men to dismount and ta the rebel fire sweeps with the roar of a whirlwind over their heads. Here we will leave them for a moment, and trace the fortunes of the Prairie Scouts. When Foley brought his troop to a halt, Captain Fairbanks, at the head of the first company of Scouts, was at the point where the first volley of musketry had been received. e saw a Guardsman, who pointed in the direction in which Zagonyi had gone. He took this for an order, and obeyed it. When he reached the gap in the fence, made by Foley, not seeing any thing of the Guard, he supposed they had passed through at that place, and gallantly attempted to follow. Thirteen men fell in a few minutes. He
