ose of destroying American stores known to have been deposited there. These had been removed to a place of concealment a little back of the village. The invaders threatened to destroy the village if the hiding-place of the stores was not revealed. The women and children fled from their homes in alarm. A negro, compelled by threats, gave the desired information; and they were marching in the direction of the stores when they were confronted at a bridge over a ravine by forty men under Captain Turner. A sharp skirmish ensued. The British were foiled, and as they returned to their vessels they burned the public storehouses, five dwellings, and a hotel. The property destroyed at Sodus was valued at $25,000. The marauders then sailed eastward, and looked into Oswego Harbor, but Sir James Yeo, their cautious commander, did not venture to go in. Chauncey was unable to accomplish much with his squadron during 1814. Early in the season he was taken sick, and in July his squadron was
nveloped in a single case. This is a modern institution, it having been originally customary to employ loose powder and ball. Then followed a cartridge containing a measured quantity of powder, the bullets being carried separately in a bag. The end of the paper cylinder was bitten off and the paper used as a wad. Gustavus Adolphus (killed at Lutzen, 1632) is said to have been the first to have made up the cartridge with a measured quantity of powder and a ball fastened thereto. Sir James Turner, in the time of Charles II. of England, speaks of cartridges employed by horsemen, carried in a patron which answered to the modern cartridge-box. After this time it appears that cartridges were carried in cases suspended from bandoliers, equivalent to the more modern bayonet scabbard-belt. Soon afterward the great improvement—the cartridge-box—was adopted, which still, under various modifications, continues in use. See accouterments. Cartridges. Plain, round ball, and buck a
, now plated over with strong surface-color like a coat of burnished metal, now sending light, pearly hints of variegated radiance, from clusive depths; or cups fantastically pied with scales of iridescence over their own strong original colorations, are scattered around a considerable apartment, defeating all sense of strict estimation, and cheating the mind with the notion of a possible perfection in the manufacture only compatible, as it seems, with decay. Some of the platters look as if Turner had painted skies on them in his maddest mood, and had been allowed to use flames for colors. The general effect seems to suggest that all the sunsets that have glimmered over Cyprus since these crystals were lost in the earth had sunk into their hiding-place and permeated their substance. —N.

A free arm H, with fingerpiece and finger I J, serves to keep down the leaves on the left-hand side and to turn back the whole series when a piece of music is finished. The fingers D may be pressed downward and held in horizontal position by a catch, so that the leaves may pass freely above them when required. Leaf-Turner. Leaf—valve. (Pumping-engine.)

An arrangement by which the accumulation of water in the hold of a vessel is made to sound an alarm to call attention to the leak. It is a regular part of duty on shipboard to sound the pumps, but it is a duty sometimes overlooked. Even when the amount is not dangerous, the accumulation of bilge-water may injure the cargo. See bilge-water alarm. Lea
o give the requisite tone. The tuning of these teeth is accomplished by altering their thickness by stoning, filing, or scraping, till the proper pitch is obtained. To prevent too long vibration of any of these teeth, a system of dampers is employed; on the under side of the longer tongues small pieces of steel spring are attached; to the middle teeth of the comb small bits of goose-quill are attached by cement, the short teeth, having a short vibration, requiring no dampers.

Pepy, in his Diary (May, 1662), recommends trimming one's self with a pumice-stone, which I learnt of Mr. March, and I find it very easy, speedy, and pleasant. Among the Knights of the Razor are to be found enrolled the great inventors Ctesibus, Arkwright, and the great English painter, Turner; the latter was a very humble member of this ancient and honorable fraternity, and was dropped from the rolls of the order at quite an early age, having shown a degree of genius for drawing which was perhaps deemed incompatible with his success in his hereditary profession. The order of procedure in making the best razors is as follows:— 1. The blade is molded. 2. Forged. 3. Ground and scorched to take off the black scale. 4. Drilled for the joint, and stamped with the name.
