dvantageous position, now returned and joined in the attack. With the flood-tide the two iron-clads were floated off, and withdrew up the river. The Drewry and one of the torpedo launches were destroyed. The armor of the Virginia was penetrated. That night the Confederate squadron came down again with the intention of attacking the Onondaga, but retired after meeting with a warm reception from the batteries on the banks. From a brief narrative furnished to the editors by Chief Engineer Alexander Henderson, U. S. N., the following statement is condensed: At this time [January 23d, 1865] I was serving on board the Onondaga, which was lying at anchor some little distance below the obstructions in Trent's Reach. On the evening of the 23d I was preparing to lay torpedoes at the obstructions, in compliance with a suggestion made a short time before by General Grant.

Pindar nor Euripides ever wrote pamphlets against the Church of England, by G—! It won't do, Mr. Milton! This, it may be supposed, is Mr. Masson's way of being funny and dramatic at the same time. Good taste is shocked with this barbarous dissonance. Could not the Muse defend her son? Again, when Charles I., at Edinburgh, in the autumn and winter of 1641, fills the vacant English sees, we are told, It was more than an insult; it was a sarcasm!

Baker, of Richmond, and Elizabeth E. Baker. Brigadier-General Rufus Barringer Brigadier-General Rufus Barringer was born in Cabarrus county, N. C., December 2, 1821.
