In June, 1777, with about 7,000 men, Lieutenant-General Burgoyne left St. Ruins of Fort Ticonderoga. Johns, on the Sorel, in vessels, and moved up Lake Champlain. His army was composed of British and German regulars, Canadians and Indians. The Gemans were led by Maj.-Gen. Baron de Riedesel, and Burgoyne's chief lieutenants were Major-General Phillips and Brigadier-General Fraser. The invading army (a part of it on land) reached Crown Point, June 26, and menaced Ticonderoga, where General St. Clair was in command. The garrison there, and at Mount Independence opposite, did not number in the aggregate more than 3,500 men, and not more than one in ten had a bayonet; while the invaders numbered between 8,000 and 9,000, including a reinforcement of Indians, Tories, and a splendid train of artillery.

In the autumn of 1812 the venerable Seth Davis, now of West Newton, erected for Mr. Bemis a small brick building at the east end of the old mill for a gas-house, and for two years the factory was lighted with gas made from coal. This is believed to have been the first successful attempt to use gas in the United States. In 1798 a part of the celebrated manufactory of Boulton and Watt, at Soho, England, was lighted with gas, and in 1805 the cotton mills of Messrs. Phillips and Lea, at Salford, were lighted by Mr. William Murdock, of Redmuth in Cornwall, who in 1792 had lighted his own house and offices successfully; this is the earliest recorded use of gas for the purpose of lighting. The use of gas by Mr. Bemis was discontinued after two years, only because the tin pipes through which it was conducted leaked so badly, and it was prepared so close to his dwelling-house, that its longer use was objectionable. Mr. Bemis carried on the cotton and wool

It appears that Capt John Maxwell, whose name has become familiar in connection with the daring exploits of his command, which is detached from the navy on secret service, was at Mill Creek, on the Rappahannock, with eleven of his men, when a negro regiment, commanded by Col. Draper, a white man, attempted to capture them, their locality having been betrayed by some person who was aware of their hiding place. When the regiment surrounded the Captain and his party, three of our into — George Phillips, of Elizabeth City; John Collona, of the Eastern Shore; and Scott, a private in the Jeff Davis Legion — surrendered.

The rest of the party were captured. The three first- named prisoners who surrendered were carried by the guard to a farm house about half a mile distant, and halted. While they w
