water, consequently, was as stable as that of a river; their guns were fired with deliberation, doubtless by trained artillerists. According to the enemy's statements, the fleet fired 151 shots. . . . Not more than thirty-four shots Major Echols's report puts the number at fifty-five, which it is conceded is the correct one.--G. T. B. took effect on the walls of Fort Sumter. . . . Fort Moultrie and our other batteries were not touched in a way to be considered, while in return they threw 1399 shots. At the same time Sumter discharged 810 shots; making the total number of shots fired 2209, of which the enemy reports that 520 struck the different vessels; a most satisfactory accuracy when the smallness of the target is considered. The repulse had not been looked upon as a thing possible by the North, and when the news reached that section it engendered a heavy gloom of disappointment and discouragement — a feeling not unlike that which had prevailed there after the Confederate
n the thickness of the wall, and the conical smoke-tunnel ended in a loop-hole, as at Conisborough Castle. Winwall House, in Norfolk, England, is of the Anglo-Norman period, has recessed hearths and flues rising from them, carried up in the external and internal walls. It was built in the twelfth century. Rochester, Kenilworth, and Conway Castles, Great Britain, show chimneys similar to that in Conisborough Castle. A chimney in Bolton Castle, erected in the reign of Richard II., 1377-1399, has a chimney thus described by Leland: — One thynge I muche notyd in the hawle of Bolton, finiched or kynge Richard the 2 dyed, how chimeneys were conveyed by tunnels made on the syds of the walls betwyxt the lights in the hawle, and by this means, and by no covers, is the smoke of the harthe in the hawle wonder strangely conveyed.

He was either the son or grandson of Galfridus Cushyn of Hardingham, Norfolk county, England, who is mentioned in the subsidy roll for Norfolk in 1327. He added to the original estates of Hardingham the estates of Hingham, and these were inherited by his son Thomas. Son Thomas was born in the latter part of the reign of Richard II, 1377-1399. A deed contains his name, dated 1466. His son William, eldest son and heir, lived in Hingham, England. His long and explicit will was dated 1492 and was proved in the Bishop's Court in 1493. In ancient deeds he is styled Gentleman. William's oldest son, John, also owned properties in Lombard street, London. He is called Gentleman in a survey of the manor of Flockshrop in Hardingham. He is mentioned in the subsidy rolls of Henry VIII. Thomas, second son of John, inherited the ho
