return to Cape Girardeau, he retraces his steps to that post, while Carlin returns to Pilot Knob, where the brigade of the Swamp Fox could never again come to molest him. Fremont had at last succeeded in putting his columns in motion; and while a detachment of his troops once more took possession of Lexington, setting free a certain number of Union prisoners left there and capturing seventy of the enemy's men, the Federal forces pursued their toilsome march towards the Osage. On the 16th of October Fremont reached that river in the vicinity of Warsaw, but its swollen waters rendered the ford impracticable and made it necessary to construct hastily a trestle-bridge. This work occupied five days, and on the 21st the whole army crossed the Osage. The transport train had by this time been organized, and it followed the Bolivar road on its way to Springfield. On the 24th Fremont reached the borders of Pomme de Terre River, eighty kilometres from that city; and he sent Major Zagonyi,

eserve the general who is with them. Finally, toward evening the enemy suddenly disappears. The train despatched from Memphis has taken up on the way a battery of artillery and a regiment of infantry, and, being covered by skirmishers, has advanced up to within a very short distance of Collierville. Corse closely followed the train at a double-quick, and the approach of these reinforcements has induced Chalmers to retreat. Sherman can continue his journey without difficulty. On the 16th of October his entire corps is at Corinth, and the troops which Hurlbut has stationed en échelon along the railway are preparing to follow him. On the 19th the heads of his columns, when they arrive at Eastport on the Tennessee, find two gunboats sent by Admiral Porter to protect the transports bringing in provisions for the army. This supplying by water, while it changes Sherman's base of operations, will allow him to abandon the railway on the west of Iuka and to call back the garrison which h

It was a war of revolution; a struggle to secure German liberty by establishing religious toleration; yet even the great events on which the destinies of Germany were suspended, could not wholly drive from the mind of Gustavus his designs in America. They did but enlarge his views; and at Nuremberg, but a few days 1632 Oct. 16. before the battle of Lutzen, where humanity won one of her most glorious victories, and lost one of her ablest defenders, the enterprise, which still appeared to him as the jewel of his kingdom, Oxenstiern, in Argonautica Gustaviana.

The garrison of Subercase, the French governor, was weak and disheartened, and could not be rallied; murmurs and desertions multiplied: the terms of capitulation were easily con- Oct. 1-12. certed; the tattered garrison, one hundred and fifty-six in number, marched out with the honors of war, to Oct. 5-16. beg food as alms. Famine would have soon compelled Charlevoix, II 343, 346. a surrender at discretion. In honor of the queen, the place was called Annapolis. The French were unwilling to abandon the hope of recovering possession. Vaudreuil, having appointed Castin his lieutenant for Acadia, in the winter of 1710, sent messengers over the snows to the missionaries, to preserve the zeal and patriotism of the Indian allies and the inhabitants; but, from that day to this, the English flag ha

The design against Gloucester was never carried out; but Mowat, in a ship of sixteen guns, attended by three other vessels, went up the harbor of Portland, and after a short parley, at half-past 9, on the morning of the sixteenth of October, he began to fire upon the town. In five minutes, several houses were in a blaze; parties of marines landed to spread the conflagration by hand. All sea-going vessels were burned except two, which were carried away. The cannonade was keurteen guns, and seventeen days later, two others of thirty six guns. But much time would pass before their equipment; as yet, war was not waged on the high sea, nor reprisals authorized, nor the ports opened to foreign nations. On the sixteenth of October, the day on which Mowat anchored below Falmouth, the new legislature of Pennsylvania was organized. Chosen under a dread of independence, all of its members who were present subscribed the usual engagements of allegiance to the king. In

A valuable gift. A pleasant and well-attended social meeting opened the season for the Medford Historical Society at its rooms October 16. President Wait reported that the enrolment of members in the several committees, according to the plan proposed last summer, had not proceeded far, and emphasized the fact that this enrolment is wholly voluntary, and should not be regarded as imposing a burden upon any member. The notable event of the evening was the presentation to the Society of several valuable articles once the property of Mrs. Lydia Maria Child, and intimately associated with different periods of her life from girlhood to full maturity. The presentation was made by Mrs. Anna D. Hallowell, through whose efforts they have been secured for the Society. The articles are the gift of Mr. W. H. Parsons, of Brooklyn, whose wife was a niece of Mrs. Child. They were given in the name of Mrs. Sarah M. Parsons (born Preston). The gift included (1) a baby's gown, wrought by L
