e edge of the swamp lining the creek near Farmington, we were halted and first two and soon after two more companies thrown forward and deployed as skirmishers across and on either side of the road leading to Farmington. Receiving soon after an order to move up the whole regiment, I pushed forward and overtook my advance companies (A, F, D, and I), briskly engaged, steadily driving the enemy before them under a close and rapid fire. Halting the left wing, and leaving it under charge of Major Rowland, the advance companies pushed forward, soon clearing the woods of the enemy, and on emerging from the swamp were reformed and placed in position to guard the road through which we had passed, Companies A and F on the right, D across, and I on the left of the road. The left wing, with the exception of Company C, which was temporarily detailed to rebuild a bridge across the creek — a duty which, under the immediate direction of General Paine, they speedily and effectually accomplished-and
l in Trouble.--Some ludicrous incidents are told of the precipitate flight of the rebel Provost-Marshal and Military Board of Hopkinsville on the announcement of the fall of Fort Henry. The rebel postmaster, R. B. Lander, started out on foot, trudging through the deep mud and tremendous torrent of rain to Clarksville. Thos. Bryan, one of the rebel Military Board, went around bidding his secesh friends a final good-by, and crying and blubbering like a spanked child. The Provost-Marshal, Dr. Rowland, however, was the most luckless fellow. He had been particularly tyrannical and insulting to the Union men, and was in the habit of compelling old men to take the oath of allegiance to the Southern Confederacy, before he would give them a pass. On hearing of the rebel reverse, he fled to Clarksville, and took a boat to Nashville; but while on the boat he insulted the clerk, and, about midnight, in a torrent of rain, was set ashore, with his trunks, in the woods, and left to his own plea
(and as the infantry got no opportunity to assist, though they behaved with great coolness and steadiness throughout,) they and the howitzer battery were especially complimented by their gallant commander. Lieut.-Colonel Adams, Major Owens, Captains Rowland, Alexander, and Carter, Lieuts. Keene, Dick, Carpenter, and Beatty, and many private soldiers of the rear-guard we noticed, and no doubt others whom we did not see, especially distinguished themselves by their daring bravery in the fight. Cline and orders a retreat. A rapid pursuit follows for some five miles, and our men are ordered to return. The killed on our side were three of Wolford's bravest men, Orderly Sergeant Hoy, and Staley, of company C, and one of company F, and Capt. Rowland and four others wounded. Scott lost some twelve or fifteen killed and forty wounded and over one hundred captured, besides horses and arms, and his large regimental flag. His whole command was scattered, and made their way out that night by
h, evinced a cool daring and soldierly presence of mind eminently praiseworthy. Lieutenant and Adjutant Cooke, of the Twenty-fourth, was foremost in leading his regiment while under my eye, and I have had frequent occasions to observe qualities which make him second to none in courage and capacity. Lieutenant-Colonel Bryson, of the Twenty-fifth, was cool and gallant. I cannot further particularize. To the members of my staff I owe much for their prompt and untiring assistance--Captain Rowland, A. A. G.; Lieutenant Brodnax, A. D. C.; Mr. Mason, volunteer Aid, and Lieutenants Ashe and Thomas, the last my ordnance officer, who was ever in the right place. My orderlies, privates Pierson and De Vom, of the Twenty-fourth, acted with unwonted intelligence and gallantry throughout the day, in bearing messages, under the hottest fire. The latter had his horse shot. Though not a part of my brigade, I cannot properly close my report without mentioning the Forty-sixth North Carolin
Rumford's percolator. The percolator was invented by Count Rumford. The ground coffee is pressed between perforated diaphragms, so as by compactness to prevent the water from filtering through too quickly. 2. Coffee-pots having arrangements for condensing the steam and the essential oil, — which constitutes the aroma of the coffee, — and returning them to the infusion. An early arrangement of this kind is the Bencini patent, September 27, 1838. See also Martell's patent, 1825; Rowland, 1844; Waite and Sener, Old Dominion, 1856. These have lids or upper chambers to condense the steam. 3. Coffee-pots of peculiar construction, as: — Hotte, 1870; a furnace inside the coffee-pot. Manning, 1869; an earthenware lining to a metallic pot. Gibson, 1871; a flat breast to prevent lateral tilting when the pot is tipped forward. Suspended on journals over a lamp and tipped on its bearings. A strainer suspended from the spout. Hot-water jacket. Iron heater in r<

must sit his saddle as he sits a chair. All Mexicans ride well, but even for a Mexican ranger, Capitan Soto was a dasher; going like a gale of wind; yet able, in his rapid flight, to twist himself round his horse's belly, and to cling unseen about his horse's neck. The charms of an adventurous life drew many riders, not less daring than himself, to Soto's camp. One day they were rioting with senforitas at Los Angeles; another, they were flying for their necks before such hunters as Sheriff Rowland and Sheriff Morse. Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and San Diego are the favourite scenes of brigand warfare, as the frontier offers them a ready market and a safe retreat. From Soto to Vasquez, every brigand in California has found his base of operations in Mexico. Los Angeles county is a mountain region, with a dozen trackless canons, opening into fertile plains. The soil was owned by half-breeds, children of the disbanded soldiers and their stolen squaws; but from the moment when

lse friend, until he heard that Adams, sheriff of Santa Clara, and Rowland, sheriff of Los Angeles, were in the field, scouring the country ir had as yet been near the creek, for Leiva had not fallen in with Rowland; and even after his flight, the brigand hardly thought his lieuten in the neighbourhood watching the White rangers, now came in, and Rowland, after listening to his tale, engaged his services as scout and gu of dragging him to a felon's cell. Guided by Leiva's messages, Rowland was often in his track and always on his trail. Not once but manye day, while he was flying up a hill near San Gabriel, followed by Rowland and a dozen rangers, he met John Osborne, Charley Miles, and two o'll take them both. Good-bye! Unable to ride the brigand down, Rowland, acting on Leiva's hints, affected to renounce the chase. Vasquezatting lazily with anyone who called, the scouts imagined that Sheriff Rowland had given up the game, and that the mystery of Tres Pinos, lik

by bluster; after which to enjoy a quick return to our homes. Good men and women were glad for this evident change of front, and murmured around me: God bless the young man and give him health and strength. I had hoped that the officers of the regiment would elect my brother Rowland, a Congregational minister, chaplain. It would have been a great comfort to have had his companionship and counsel, but the Rev. Andrew J. Church, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was preferred. Later Rowland went to the front as an agent of the Christian Commission. My disappointment was lessened by my younger brother's enlistment and detail as regimental clerk. This brother, Charles H. Howard, obtained his first commission as second lieutenant in the Sixty-first New York, was with me on staff duty till 1865, and received deserved promotion from grade to grade till he became a lieutenant colonel and inspector general. He was later made colonel of the One Hundred and Twenty-eighth colored reg
