they were driven, subjected to a disastrous fire from the right, left and front. The prisoners taken were yesterday on their way to this city, and were expected to reach here last night. They were but a few miles from the city late in the afternoon. They were marched by land under guard. Among others killed or wounded we have the names of the following officers: Killed-Colonel Ward, of the Fourth Florida regiment; Major William H. Palmer, of the First Virginia regiment, (and son of Mr. Wm. Palmer, of this city,) and Capt. Jack Humphreys, of the Seventeenth Virginia regiment. Wounded--Col. Corse, of the Seventeenth Virginia regiment; Col. Kemper, of the Seventh Virginia regiment, and Col. Garland, of Lynchburgh, severely. Another heavy battle took place yesterday near Barhamsville, in the county of New-Kent, but with what result was not known, as the courier who brought the intelligence to this city left at twelve o'clock. The enemy landed their forces from gunboats (twenty-fo

William Palmer brought Kuhn James Hamilton Kuhn, of Philadelphia, afterward A. D.

I am truly sorry to hear that John Markoe has been again wounded. Do you remember General Palmer? He is reported killed, but I hope it is a mistake.

We were all under arms before daybreak, but everything has been quiet up to this moment, (9 A. M.). I suppose you have heard of William Palmer's death. They seemed to be quite shocked at it at headquarters, as he had left only about a week ago, sick, but not considered dangerously so. Poor fellow!
than those who built it. These are two examples of elevated railways of a certain kind. The Greenwich Railway was always worked by locomotives. The Blackwall Railway was for many years worked by stationary engines and wire ropes. In 1821, Palmer, engineer to the London Dock Company, patented a railway whose single track was elevated upon pillars, which were of such lengths as to bring the track to a level or moderate inclination, notwithstanding the inequalities in the surface of the grohe platforms are elevated by a perpendicular lift operated by compressed air. In India, Australia, and some other places, it has not been unusual to cross gullies and rivers by means of a bucket or basket suspended from a cord. The patents of Palmer, Fisher, and Dick, already cited, are an amplification of this idea, a carriage being arranged to travel on a rail. The idea has recently been reduced to practice in a compact and useful form. See wire-way. El′e-vating—block. A tackle-

Perpendicular fluting, used in the Dorie frieze. Glyph′o-graph. A name given by Mr. Palmer to his system of relief line-engraving. A thin ground of was is spread upon the plate; this is etched or cut away so as to give the design in intaglio. The ground is now covered with a film of graphite, after which metal is precipitated upon the metal in an electro-bath, giving a metallic plate with the design in relief. The copper shell is backed with lead and used as an ordinary printing surface. By a similar process the engravings which illustrate this book have been made. See re

The power is communicated by a friction pulley. The belted pulley is loose on the shaft, and the friction pulley slides on a spline on the shaft. The operator bears down with his foot upon the treadle, which passes around the hammer; this brings the friction in contact with the belted pulley, which is running all the time, and rotates the shaft, on which is a crank; this, by means of a connecting rod and spring, works the hammer, giving a blow depending for its str
