th Ohio battery be mustered out of service, and that the men and material remaining may be applied to filling up the ranks of some battery which has done honor to the service. My personal thanks are due to my personal staff. Capt. S. D. Atkins, A. A. A. General, who rose from a sick-bed and was with me until I ordered him to the rear. He was absent about three hours and returned and remained throughout the battle. Lieut. J. C. Long, Ninth Regular infantry, my Aid, was peculiarly active, energetic, and daring in conveying my orders under a heavy fire. He was fortunate in receiving no wound, although one ball passed through his cap, and one through his sleeve. Lieut. Beaver, my acting A. Q. M., acted as Aid with great coolness and courage, and had his horse killed under him. Lieut. W. H. Dorchester joined me as a volunteer Aid on Sunday, and rendered valuable aid on Monday. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, A. S. Hurlbut, Brigadier-Gen. Commanding Fourth Division.
ple of companies—to police this large population. I sent an officer, as usual, to call on him and acquaint him with my wants and intention as to time of stay. Mr. Beaver, of the firm of Cumming, Beaver & Co., a clever English merchant, came on board, and offered to facilitate us all in his power, in the way of procuring suppliesBeaver & Co., a clever English merchant, came on board, and offered to facilitate us all in his power, in the way of procuring supplies. I accepted his kind offer, and put him in communication with the paymaster, and the next day rode out, and dined, and spent a night with him at his country-seat. He lived in luxurious style, as do most European merchants in the East. The drive out took us through the principal streets of the city, which I found to be laid outes having a semiEnglish, semi-Oriental air. The houses of the better classes were surrounded by lawns and flower-gardens, and cool verandahs invited to repose. Mr. Beaver's grounds were extensive, and well kept, scarcely so much as a stray leaf being visible on his well mown lawns. His household—the lady was absent in England—wa<

ulphuric acid, to which beer-grounds or wine-lees are added, and then worked upon an inclined plane at the side of the kettle until it is shrunk to half its former size and much increased in thickness, the operation being completed by the aid of a rolling-pin which smooths and compacts the felt. The body is then dried in a stove, and sized with a brush dipped in shellac dissolved in alcohol, and again dried; any superfluous sizing is removed by dipping in an alkaline solution and scraping. Beaver fur is applied to the exterior by being mixed with fine cotton, and the two are felted, in manner similar to that described, into a thin sheet, which is affixed to the exterior of the body by manipulating it in the boiler and on the plank; in this process the cotton separates. The body is yet of a conical shape, and is partially brought into proper form by hand, and then stretched upon a cylindrical block, after which it is dyed by boiling in a solution of copperas, verdigris, gall-nuts, an

ty which so closely resembles the manufacturing towns in England that I almost fancied I was once more on the other side of the Atlantic. So, too, the enthusiasm manifested at our meetings was altogether in the English style. For example, at the close Ante, p. 173. of our last meeting, three tremendous cheers were given to Douglass, three for Foster, and three for myself. Everything S. S. Foster. passed off in the most spirited and agreeable manner. On Friday, we took the steamer for Beaver, on the Ohio Aug. 13. River, . . . and from thence rode to New Brighton in an omnibus, some three or four miles, accompanied by several of our colored Pittsburgh friends—J. B. Vashon and son (George B.), Dr. Peck, Dr. Delaney (editor of the Mystery, black as jet, M. R.

pillaging or thieving was allowed, and none of it was done. Only provisions for men and provender for stock were taken, and Confederate money offered, which was refused. The command was kept under strict orders and discipline enforced. The Yankee women had no smiles for us, and treated and looked upon us as savages. The command had fighting and skirmishing through the towns of New Boston, New Baltimore, Williamsburg, Sardinia, Winchester, Jacksonville, Locust Grove, Jasper, Packville, Beaver, Jackson, Butland, Chester and Buffington's Island. Here it attempted to cross the Ohio river in the face of all the gunboats on the river and 40,000 cavalry and citizens, and held them in check for three hours, when General Basil Duke and half of the command were taken prisoners and sent down the river to Cincinnati. There, the people, it is said, treated them to all manner of abuse they could devise. The little boys were allowed to spit in their faces. From there they were sent to Camp

200 were appropriated annually for roads, and surveyors were appointed. A resident of the town twenty years ago, after carefully examining the records, especially for 1739, wherein the bounds of the Overseers of Highways are described, came to the conclusion that of all the roads and streets in Waltham, the following only were in existence when the town was incorporated, viz.: Mill Street, part of North Street or Trapelo Road; Pigeon Hill Road, part of the old Forest Street; part of Quince; Beaver; Winter; part of Lincoln, the way up the hills; a way by Mr. Hagar's unknown; Prospect; Weston; Main, the country road; part of South, the way to Dummer's farm; the road over Prospect Hill, beginning above the house of Hon. N. P. Banks; Bacon Street, Skunk, or Mixer's Lane, from Country Road to School-house; Pleasant; Grove and Warren Streets. Gore Street was an ancient way, but is not mentioned as a highway in the Surveyors' bounds. The northern portion of the town had nearly double the
