d transpired on Monday--it was entirely an affair of infantry and artillery. The artillery, it cannot be denied, behaved nobly, and, it must be confessed, effectually snuffed out the enemy more than once during the day. I cannot account for the fact, yet in all truth it is fact. When no one opposes them, the drill and accuracy of the enemy are very fine, but I have ever remarked that when ours meet them at close quarters, they work their guns very rapidly, but fire extremely wild. When Mowry's and Couts's field batteries were sustaining a duello against great odds, and had disabled several of the enemy's pieces, fresh ones were ever at hand to replace them, and keep up the fire. Once during the day Coats had silenced four guns, and some of the Richmond Howitzers, unemployed, seeing him overworked, volunteered to dash in under fire, and bring the guns off. Unhitching the horses from their howitzers, they galloped into the smoke, and within a few yards of the foe brought off four

General Mowry promptly acceded to the request, and, with abGeneral Mowry promptly acceded to the request, and, with about one thousand two hundred men in company with the Marine brigade, General A. W.

At the forks of the road, within three miles of Richmond, I met General Mowry's command, and we proceeded forward together, my forces being in advance. We met the enemy about a mile from the tat Milliken's Bend, a week before, and was repulsed. Our entire loss was three men wounded, one only dangerously. Gen. Mowry's command participated throughout most vigorously, and I feel indebted to the General for his prompt cooperation and ad

erates were repulsed, and were pursued a short distance, with a loss estimated at one hundred and fifty killed and three hundred wounded. The National loss was one hundred and twenty-seven killed, two hundred and eighty-seven wounded, and about three hundred missing. See Report of General Elias S. Dennis to J. A. Rawlins, Assistant Adjutant-General, June 16, 1863. A week later, the Confederates were driven out of Richmond by an expedition from Young's Point, composed of the command of General Mowry, and the marine brigade under General R. W. Ellet. Grant pressed the siege with vigor as June wore away. Johnston was beyond the Big Black, chafing with impatience to do something to save the beleaguered garrison, but in vain, for he could not. collect troops sufficient for the purpose, while Pemberton, still hoping for succor, fought on, and suffered with the heart-sickness of hope deferred. Finally, on the 21st June, 1863., he sent a messenger to Johnston, who had moved out from Ca

F. Minter, assistant engineer, th the Columbia. Captain McClellan himself, with Mr. Minter and six men, made an examination of the Nahchess Pass. Lieutenant Mowry was left in charge of the camp at Wenass. By the 31st of August all these separate parties, except that under Liecamp. Here Captain McClellan determined to reduce the number of his party; and, accordingly, on the 2d of September Lieutenant Mowry was sent back to the Dalles, on Columbia River, with seventeen men, of whom but two were to return with him. He tooke I will go to then, circumstances must determine,--I think to Colville,--perhaps thence to the Rocky Mountains. Lieutenant Mowry had returned from the Dalles on the 2d of September, and on the 16th Lieutenant Hodges arrived from Steilacoom, brin

The object is to prevent the hubs shrinking away from the rims after the latter have cooled, as is apt to be the case when the cooling is initiated in the reverse order. Geisse's annealing oven. Mowry, May 7, 1861. The car-wheels, alternating with layers of charcoal, are built up into a pile in a pit, which is so arranged that the quantity of air may be graduated to regulate the combustion, which is designed to be protracted. The double walls of the pit or annealing case form a non-conductor to retain the heat, and allow but a very gradual cooling to the mass. Mowry's car-wheel annealing.

sorrowing relatives and friends. General Beale (the agent in this city for supplying the Confederacy with soldiers' blankets in exchange for cotton), with five other intimate friends of the deceased general, most of whom are paroled Confederate officers, acted as pall-bearers on the occasion. Several Federal officers, in uniform, were in attendance at the obsequies. [The pall-bearers were General Beall, of the Confederate service, and General Stone, Major Trowbridge, Major Prime and Lieutenant Mowry, of the United States service, and Mr. S. L. Merchant.—C. B. D.] The Rev. Dr. Morgan Dix, Rector of Trinity, was the officiating minister, assisted by Rev. Dr. Ogilvie. The corpse of the deceased was brought from Governor's Island about 12.30 o'clock on Saturday morning, and placed in the vestibule of Trinity, where, for half an hour, the friends and relatives were allowed to view the features of the late general. The body was embalmed, and on the coffin lid were laid beautiful fl
A young Hero. --As Lieut. Mowry and a companion were approaching Gila Bend, they met with a surprise of a novel character. At some hundreds of feet from the station, quite near the road was suspended from a tree the corpse of an Indian. It appears that one month since Gila Bend was inhabited only by a single family — an aged American, and his two sons; of whom the eldest was hardly fifteen years old, and a servant. On a certain night the inhabitants of the station were awakened by the well known war cry of the Apaches, and soon discovered that the house was surrounded. The establishment being simply constructed of the branches and leaves of trees like Gila City itself and the majority of the other stations, the dangers environed the inhabitants, now attacked by some five hundred yelling and frantic savages, may be imagined. Not hoping to escape, the men and boys armed themselves and awaited the attack. They were saved in the moment of extermination by a dead shot from the r
