The following will indicate the succession and dates of the inventions in the line of paper-making machines. Some collateral points of interest are also noted:— 1750. Woven paper-molds introduced by Baskerville. 1759. The rag-engine introduced into England from Holland, where it was invented about 1750. 1790.

gade lost fifty-five per cent. in killed and wounded. The loss in this regiment was so great the first day, that it could not be taken into action, as a regiment, the succeeding days. The regiment was left without a commissioned officer, all being among the killed and wounded, and there remained but one non-commissioned officer and sixteen privates. The Colonel, D. H. Christie, was mortally wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel R. D. Jordan was badly wounded through the lower jaw and neck. Captain Baskerville, of Company G, killed on the field.

James River and Kanawha Canal.--The House proceeded to consider, on motion of Mr. Hunt, the following resolution offered by him on the 7th inst., at that time laid on the table. Resolved, That the Committee of Roads and Internal Navigation be requested to lay before this House such proof, if any, of the ability of the firm of Bellet dee Minieres & Co, to execute their contract made in August last, for the purchase and completion of the James River and Kanawha Canal. Mr. Baskerville hoped the resolution would be withdrawn. The Committee of Roads and Navigation had the matter in hand, and he urged that their report should be waited for. Mr. Chapman, Chairman of the Committee, said, that when the resolution was offered some time since, he was opposed to its adoption, but that he was satisfied, from the multitude of inquiries poured into the committee, that the information should be given. He believed the testimony before the committee not only showed the entir
