At the same time McKenzie was sent with a small body of cavalry to a position on the White Oak road, to cover the National right flank from any for sought safety in a most disorderly flight westward, pursued many miles, long after dark, by the cavalry of Merritt and McKenzie. Mr. Swinton, in his Campaigns of the Army of the Potomac, page 600, says of Warren, who was in the van of the chargiision, now commanded by General Bartlett, was directed to push northward up the Ford road to Hatcher's Run, supported by McKenzie's cavalry.

ions to an appointed place, near Appomattox Court-House, where they stacked their arms and accouterments, and the private soldiers and warrant officers received their paroles. So the Army of Northern Virginia disappeared. The kindness of the Government followed the offending ones, even to their homes, transportation and food for their journey being afforded to large numbers of them. The victorious army all returned to Burkesville Station (excepting the infantry of Gibbon and Griffin, and McKenzie's cavalry, who were left at Appomattox Court-House until the business of the surrender was finished), and thence, a few days later, they moved on to Petersburg and Richmond. General Grant and his staff left for City Point on the 11th, leaving General Meade to attend to the details of the surrender. Lee lost, during the movements of his army, from the 26th of March to the 9th of April, about 14,000 killed and wounded, and 25,000 made prisoners. The remainder, who were not present at the

Her name deserves to be enrolled among the heroes of the war, and it is with pride that I bear testimony to her bravery and patriotism. Order among the troops was in a measure restored at Brentwood, a few miles in rear of the scene of disaster, through the promptness and gallantry of Clayton's Division, which speedily formed and confronted the enemy, with Gibson's brigade and McKenzie's battery, of Fenner's battalion, acting as rear guard of the rear guard. General Clayton displayed admirable coolness and courage that afternoon and the next morning in the discharge of his duties. General Gibson, who evinced conspicuous gallantry and ability in the handling of his troops, succeeded, in concert with Clayton, in checking and staying the first and most dangerous shock which always follows immediately after a rout. The result was that even after the Army passed the Big Harp

Meanwhile, McKenzie, with the inconsiderable cavalry of the Army of the James, just arrived, was to cover Warren's gainst attack from the direction of Petersburg. This order was promptly and thoroughly obeyed; McKenzie vigorously attacking and driving the only Rebel force discoverable in that quarter. This done,e whole corps having reached the position assigned it and faced westward — the charge was made; McKenzie's horsemen having been thrown out on Warren's right, so as completely to outflank the Rebels anmmunications with the rest of our army, while Griffin's own division (now Bartlett's) supported McKenzie's cavalry, which had pushed northward up the Ford road to Hatcher's run. And now, as darknes, the work of paroling went on, under the guardianship of Griffin's and Gibbon's infantry, with McKenzie's cavalry; and, so fast as paroled, the Confederates took their way severally to their respecti

General McKenzie was therefore sent up the Camp Road, withul, then march down the road and join me. General McKenzie executed this with courage and skill, attursued until long after dark by Merritt's and McKenzie's cavalry for a distance of six miles.

In addition to this, I have sent McKenzie's cavalry, which will reach you by the Vaugha[2 more...]
M., on the nineteenth ultimo. The failure of the railroad officials to carry out the arrangements and obey the orders relative to the transportation of the troops, and the delay caused thereby, have been made the subject of a special communication to the commanding General. Immediately upon my arrival at Charleston I gave the following directions to Colonels Morrison and Dibrell, commanding brigades of cavalry: Colonel Morrison, with his whole effective force, reinforced by Colonel McKenzie's and Major Jessie's commands, will move so as to reach the rear of Philadelphia by daylight to-morrow morning, and be prepared to co-operate with Colonel Dibrell, who, with his effective command, will advance so as to attack the enemy, supposed to be at that point, at daylight. Should the enemy not be found at Philadelphia, the commands will seek and capture or drive him across the Tennessee. Having routed the cavalry, they will move on London, and, should the force of the enemy's in

The pans are preserved in a horizontal position by means of suspending each from a point above its center of gravity (Ball, September 23, 1856; McKenzie, May 1, 1860; Coburn, January 30, 1872); by a suspended weight beneath the pan (Ball, July 19, 1870); by radius rods like those of a feathering paddle-wheel (McKenzie, June 6, 1871).

The rate of revolution is such that a loaf is baked during one revolution. As a pan comes opposite the mouth of the oven, the baked loaf is taken off and a loaf of dough placed upon it. The pans are hung to radial arms projecting from a rotating drum which reflects heat upon the top of the matters contained in the pans. Flues within the oven have dampers by which the escape of heat to the chimney may be permitted. The work is thus continuous, the door being closed in the intervals of taking off the br

Numerous modifications and improvements followed, forming the sub a segment rack gearing in a pinion on the driving-wheel and operated by a handle in front of the rider's seat or by the feet alternately touching the ground.

ther. I have done the best that I could for you. There were few dry eyes among those who witnessed the scene; and our soldiers hastened to divide their rations with their late enemies, now fellow-countrymen, to stay their hunger until provisions from our trains could be drawn for them. Then, while most of our army returned to Burkesville, and thence, a few days later, to Petersburg and Richmond, the work of paroling went on, under the guardianship of Griffin's and Gibbon's infantry, with McKenzie's cavalry; and, so fast as paroled, the Confederates took their way severally to their respective homes: many of them supplied with transportation, as well as food, by the government they had fought so long and so bravely to subvert and destroy.
