e on the teams and animals in the meadow on the north side of the camp. My line was on the south side of the camp. I assembled and re-formed the line, awaiting an attack from the south, but the Indians that appeared on that side quickly withdrew after they saw the repulse on the north side, not coming within gun-shot range. I cannot withhold an expression of my admiration of the gallant style in which the companies of cavalry — I believe Captain Wilson's and Davy's, the latter under Lieutenant Kidder--dashed out to meet the Indians that were very nearly successful in the dash upon the teams and loose animals. The rangers, putting their horses on the run, were but a few seconds in reaching the Indians, whose quick right — about did not save them from carbine and pistol-shot and sabre-stroke that told so well. I also saw and admired the promptitude with which Major McLaren, with part of the Sixth regiment, moved from his color-line, on that side of the camp to the support of the ca
e skirmishers gave them shots when they approached anywhere near camp. Thus some hours passed without the Indians developing their purpose. A large portion of them kept out of sight. Finally, about three o'clock, a mounted force of Indians suddenly dashed in on the north side of the camp, where mules had been turned out to graze, and where teamsters were getting grass. The Indians had almost reached them, when Captains Wilson's and Davy's companies of cavalry — the latter under Lieutenant Kidder--putting their horses to the jump, dashed upon the Indians, and so dismayed them that they wheeled their ponies to escape, but not in time to escape the carbine shots, followed by the revolver and sabre, and left a goodly number of the red devils on the field. Some of the scouts did good service in this charge. One wounded Indian tried to escape by seizing his horse's tail, but, unfortunately for him, the pony got a shot in the shoulder.

Another, at the Polytechnic Institute of London, has its primary wire 3,777 yards long, and weighing 145 pounds. The induction-wire is 150 miles long. This projects a spark 29 inches long, penetrating 5 inches of plate-glass. Its calorific effects are very intense, the most refractory substances, as platinum, being fused with ease. In Kidder's induction-coil, the secondary helix or helixes are adjustable, so that they may be either concentrated at the central or neutral portion of the primary coil or placed toward the poles, so as to vary the power of the induced currents. See Noad's Inductorium. Induction-coil. Electrical machines of great power are now constructed on the induction principle. In-duc′tion-pipe. (Steam-engine.)

valry. Duncan's black brigade was formed in line on both sides of the pike as follows: The Fifth regiment, Colonel Conine, on the right; the Twenty-second, Colonel Kidder, at the right centre; and the Sixth, Colonel Ames, on the left. Colonel Holman's small brigade formed the second line. In this order the troops struggled rderous fire. The rebels fled in confusion to the woods in their rear, leaving one gun behind, which was instantly turned upon them by some of the negroes of Colonel Kidder's regiment, under the direction of Private John Norton, of Company B, of the First District of Columbia cavalry. The rebels at Baylor's farm opened fire atble redans, half a mile, three quarters, and a mile, severally, distant, on the other side of a deep and difficult ravine, and in a very commanding position. Colonel Kidder's regiment gained the hill. In support of this general flank movement of the first line, the second line, consisting of the Fifth and Sixth regiments of Dunc
