he enemy's forces. The rebel force consisted of three thousand infantry, four hundred cavalry, and ten guns. The Union forces scattered, after cutting their way through the enemy, but soon formed again and fired, but received no reply or pursuit from the enemy. Not over two hundred were missing, out of nine hundred engaged. The rebel loss was fearful. Lieut.--Col. Creighton captured the rebels' colors and two prisoners. The following is a list of national officers known to be killed: Captain Dyer, Company D, of Painesville; Captain Shurtleff, Company C, of Oberlin; Captain Sterling, Company I; Adjutant Deforest, of Cleveland; Lieutenant Charles Warrent; Sergeant-Major King, of Warren. The field-officers are all safe. The Twenty-fifth regiment of Indiana Volunteers left Evansville for St. Louis, Mo.--Louisville Journal, August 28.

(Doc. 193.) Jackson, Miss., was evacuated by the National forces, belonging to the army of General Grant. The schooner Isabel, attempting to run the blockade at Mobile, was run ashore close under the walls of Fort Morgan, and Master's Mate Dyer, of the R. R. Cuyler, was sent with boats, either to bring her off or burn her. They were just in time to capture sixteen men, being her crew and some passengers. Finding it impossible to get the schooner off, he set fire to her and then pulled for his own ship. By this time the alarm had been given and the rebels in the fort were on the alert. Mr. Dyer, finding that the schooner did not break out in a blaze, as he expected, turned back toward the fort, and effectually did his work.--The rebel schooner Ripple, was captured by the National gunboat Kanawha, blockading the port of Pensacola, Fla.--Rebel guerrillas visited Burning Springs, Wirt County, Va., where they burned oil-works and committed other depredations.

hough without any known effect except, on the vis a tergo principle, to accelerate their speed. In a few moments the cavalry squad returned, marching between them a couple of the rebels, with the green, shirt-fashion blouse, and white muslin rag over the cap, that were known as the uniform of a raw militia cavalry company of the rebels. One of the prisoners was from Parkersburg — the other from Guyandotte. Both had been at Cross Lanes, and one of the fellows was relieved of the sword of Capt. Dyer, which he had stripped from the corpse of the poor Captain on the field. Meantime the general had already ordered forward the column, had gathered up the more intelligent of the citizens, and questioned them about the roads and by-ways, and all the topographical features of the country; had procured the official map of the county from the Clerk's office, and had learned from the frightened inhabitants all they knew or were willing to tell of the position, defences, and strength of the e
f the Fifteenth Indiana Volunteers. Lieutenant Driscoll of the Third Ohio Volunteers, volunteered to lead a scouting party, consisting of ten Indiana and ten Ohio riflemen. Lieutenant Bedford, acting Captain of our scouts, volunteered to accompany the expedition. The cavalry was taken from Captain Bracken's Indiana company. Slept the first night on our arms, with half the command awake at a time, with no fires and perfectly silent. After picketing wherever the cross roads pointed out by Dr. Dyer seemed to demand it, we proceeded at four o'clock P. M., on the 9th instant, toward the Confederate camp at Marshall's store, carefully scouring the laurel bushes. Immediately after the main body, with Captain Wing, in the advance guard, emerged from a dense thicket which lined each side of the road. Our scouts commenced firing, having come so close to the enemy, and so suddenly, that a hand-to-hand scuffle ensued between private Edwards of the Fifteenth Indiana, and a Carolina secessioni
follows, namely: Eighth Indiana infantry, commanded by Major Kinney; Eighteenth Indiana, Lieutenant-Colonel Charles; Thirty-third Illinois, Colonel C. E. Lippincott; Ninety-ninth Illinois, Colonel Bailey; and Seventh Michigan battery, Lieutenant Stillman, composing First brigade; Twenty-third Iowa., Colonel Glasgow, of the Second brigade, First division, Thirteenth army corps--all commanded by Colonel H. D. Washburn: and the Thirty-fourth Iowa, Lieutenant-Colonel Dungan; Thirteenth Maine, Colonel Dyer; Fifteenth Maine, Colonel Hazeltine; and Foust's Missouri battery, of the Second brigade, Second division, Thirteenth army corps, commanded by Brigadier-General Ransom. It affords me great pleasure to state that the conduct of Brigadier-General Ransom and Colonel H. D. Washburn, commanding brigades, was most prompt, gallant, and efficient, and deserves the highest praise. The navy has shown every disposition to cooperate in the most prompt manner; and to Captain Strong, of the Mononga
panic of retreat. At the time of this picture, four years later, both soldier and citizen are standing calmly in the sunshine of the peaceful June day. ‘Not in anger, not in pride’ do they look into our faces. At the left Judge Olin, with the cane, is standing behind a boy in a white shirt and quaint trousers who almost wistfully is gazing into the distance, as if the call of these mighty events had awakened in him a yearning for fame. To his left are Generals Thomas, Wilcox, Heintzelman, Dyer, and other veterans of many a hard-fought field who can feel the ‘march of conscious power’ of which Lowell speaks. And the women with the flaring crinoline skirts and old-fashioned sleeves certainly may join in the ‘far-heard gratitude’ this celebration was to express. After fifty years their emotions are brought home to the reader with the vividness of personal experience by the art of the photographer.

of soda, chloride of ammonium remaining in the solution: this is treated with caustic lime, reconverting the chloride into ammonia, which is bicarbonated and employed to decompose another portion of the salt solution. In 1837 Bell, and in 1838 Dyer and Hemming, in England, patented processes in which ammonia was employed. In 1854 Tuerck, and subsequently Schloesing, obtained French and English patents for similar processes, under which attempts were made to manufacture on a large scale, the greater honor. The idea, however, did not originate with Arkwright, though to him more than any other man are we indebted for the effective machine. Arkwright was but two years old when Lewis Paul patented an improved spinning-machine. Dyer, in his poem of The fleece (1757), celebrates Paul's machine, as follows:— But patient art, That on experience works, from hour to hour, Sagacious, has a spiral engine formed, Which, on a hundred spoles, a hundred threads, With one huge wheel,

ington, inclosing him a copy of some memoranda made by Colonel Browne, of a conversation had with General Totten, in Boston, in September, 1863, which bore directly on the point of the construction of a work on Long Island Head to receive our guns. The Governor asked Mr. Forbes to consider the propriety of getting the Engineer Bureau to design an earthwork for us to erect there at our own cost, with an estimate of the necessary outlay. The Governor said,— I wish that you could get General Dyer to take our guns, and have carriages constructed for them, and mount them. The Ordnance Bureau would need no special appropriation for such carriages, but could, out of existing appropriations, authorize Major Rodman, U. S. A. [then in command of the United-States Arsenal at Watertown], to build them. We do not ask them to say that they will pay for the guns, and we do not ask them to build the earthworks. We simply want to have the benefit of the defensive power of those guns in posit
