nd told to take my own time to reach the camp. I have been unable to do anything since I returned. When in June, 1863, the army moved, under Hooker towards Maryland, he was sent, against his own will and protestations, to the hospital at Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, being almost entirely disabled with fever and ague, and rheumatism. From here he writes:— Sometimes I feel very hopeful, and feel that the time will be short before I return once more to active service; then perhaps theuntil the South will get so badly whipped that they will not dream of rebellion again for a century. But one family should not be called upon to make all the sacrifices; and this is why I would not have you go. He writes from hospital at Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia:—-- I am sorry you think I have done my share in putting down the Rebellion. I do not. My experience up to this time has only served to make me anxious to conclude the war and to be in at the death. Do not imagine that I

ck, which he armed and clothed, very poorly—but the best that could be done—at his own expense, and prepared to lead them to Virginia, she entirely consenting and assisting. She had a fine house, well furnished, with every comfort and convenience. She left that just as it was, to the care of S. Teakle Willis, John Hanson Thomas, Ross Winans, John C. Brune, and the rest of the Baltimore Delegation in the legislature, which was in Frederick, in session. On May 7, 1861, she went to Chestnut Hill, Va., the residence of a friend, Mrs. Mason, and the next day her husband followed her with his company—the Frederick Volunteers—to Point of Rocks. There, in a few days, he was joined by a company from Baltimore, Capt. Edelin, and other companies were rapidly collected at Harper's Ferry. They were all mustered into the service of the Confederate States on May 21-22, 1861, the object being to form them as a nucleus for the Maryland Line, which was to be the representative of Maryland in t
ed by a swift movement to capture the party. At ten on the night of the nineteenth, he sent Grant at the head of fifty-three hundred chosen men, with the best guides, to gain by roundabout ways the rear of Lafayette. They 20. were followed the next morning by fifty-seven hundred selected troops, commanded by Howe himself, assisted by Clinton and Knyphausen, with Lord Howe to witness the discomfit of the youthful gen- Chap.

At Chestnut Hill they were to meet the American party after its rout; but they listened in vain for the sound of cannon, and at noon Grant came in sight with only his own detachment. Lafayette had been surprised and his direct communication with Valley Forge cut off; but a lower ford called Matson's, which was nearer to Grant than to him, remained unoccupied. Sending small parties into the woods, to present themselves as the heads of attacking columns, he had deceived his antagonist, and crossed the fo
as investigated the more evident it became that the situation was imperative. As all water supply questions required action by the State Board of Health, the Legislature instructed that board to report upon the question, which it did very fully in January, 1895. The outcome was an act of the Legislature that year, known as the Metropolitan Water Act, creating a board of three State commissioners to take the waters of the south branch of the Nashua river, the Boston water works above Chestnut Hill reservoir, including the reservoir and pumping stations, and Spot Pond. This supply is to be delivered to certain cities and towns, and to any other cities and towns within ten miles of the State House that want it. The total expense (construction and maintenance) of this joint system is to be borne by the cities and towns constituting the district. Contrary to our democratic form of government, neither the district as a unit nor any part of it, has any representation upon this bo

Gold in New York, on Monday, rose to 245½. It was announced that Beast Butler had notified some of the gold speculators that he wanted an interview with them. Courtenay James, sergeant in company I, Third Ohio cavalry, and son of G. P. R. James, the eminent English novelist, died recently in the Mower Hospital, Chestnut Hill. The schooner Otter, from Bengor for Georgetown, was destroyed by the Chickamauga about the last of October, and her captain and crow arrived at Philadelphia on the 7th on board the Speedwell. The United States Christian Commission has sent delegates, supplied with hospital stores, medicines and clothing, with the fleet which has gone to Savannah, Georgia, to carry home Yankee prisoners of war. A dispatch from Baltimore, dated the 7th, says: "Mrs. Thomas Hutchings, one of
