g next to it, and Hildebrand's next. To the left of Hildebrand's brigade, though rather behind a portion of Sherman's line, lay Major-Gen. McClernand's division, and between it and Stuart's brigade, already mentioned as forming our extreme left, lay Brig.-Gen. Prentiss's division, completing the front. Back of this line, within a mile of the Landing, lay Hurlburt's division, stretching across the Corinth road, and W. H. L. Wallace's to his right. Such was the position of our troops at Pitts burgh Landing, at daybreak Sunday morning Major-General Lew. Wallace's division lay a Crump's Landing, some miles below, and was not ordered up till about half-past 7 o'clock that day. It is idle to criticise arrangements now — it is so easy to be wise after a matter is over — but the reader will hardly fail to observe the essential defects of such disposition of troops for a great battle. Nearly four miles intervened between the different parts of Sherman's division. Of course to comma

A machine for cutting fiber to a very short staple, called flock. In Barber's patent (1846) it consists of a cylinder with spiral knives rotating in contact with a concave having straight knives, the effect being a shear cut upon the fiber passing between the edges, which shave past each other. See also Chase, 1862; Pitts, 1856; Marble, 1872. The example (Fig. 2026) has a bed in which knives are arranged in parallel groups, of which one in each group is radial and the others of the group parallel therewith. The lower cutter H has a rotary motion and a vertical adjustment. The other cutter J has a self-adjusting movement, without rotation, but floating, as it were, on the surface of the runner.

ion, the enemy eagerly availed himself of the cover of night to retreat from it. A list of casualties is herewith submitted. It will be seen that the losses in the regiment were heavy. Among the gallant men who fell that day was Captain W. A. Williams, Company F, who was acting major of the regiment when he was killed. He was an excellent officer and an estimable man, and his death is a serious loss not only to his company, but to the regiment. Among the most seriously wounded were Lieutenants Pitts and Cunningham, each of whom lost a leg by amputation. They are, therefore, unfortunately lost to the service. Captains Richardson and Swygort and Lieutenant Johnson were severely wounded. Captain Todd, acting Lieutenant-Colonel, and Adjutant Y. I. Pope were also severely wounded. Other officers were slightly wounded whose names will appear on the accompanying list of casualties. After Adjutant Pope was wounded, I detailed Lieutenant John W. Watts to act in his place. He and Serg

Reaching this latter place a little before day Monday morning, we remained encamped there until Tuesday morning, when the order came to strike our tents and take up the line of march for Laurel Hill, distant about one hundred and twenty-five miles.

I waited also upon Govr Pownall who I had the pleasure of having a long Conversation with and he ask'd very kindly after a great number of his Friends and acquaintances in particular after Mr Bowdoine and Mr Pitts and express'd a great regard for them both and for the Province in general as being a very fine Country and a good sort of People and was very sorry for the difficulties that have happen'd and said had his advice been seasonably taken it is likely it would have prevented all these troubles.

Indeed, had the examination been propesed in a proper manner, I should have been highly gratitied at the opportualty of showing to the people of Maryland that an official examination by my onemiss of the executive records prove the utter falsity of the many malignant charges brought agains, me by partisans. In thus tendering facilities to your committee, however, I respectfully but firmly demand that the committee shall fully and effectually discharge the duty imposed upon it, whereby the people of the State will become convinced that although originating in partisan feeling, and in an effort to offer an indignity to me, your order could elicit nothing in the premises not already fully laid before the public.
