ons to amend it had been held. The fact that there were very many English among the early settlers in New Hampshire had an effect upon the pronunciation of the language, and especially of the proper names, which was almost as marked as a like pronunciation in Virginia, and, until lately, the pronunciation in England. For example, the proper name Currier was always pronounced as if spelled K-i-a-h, and the highest courts in New Hampshire have judicially determined them to be idem sonans. Goodrich was pronounced as if spelled G-u-t-r-i-d-g-e; Seelye as if spelled C-i-l-l-e-y; and Seabrook as if spelled S-a-y-b-r-o-o-k. These pronunciations show their English tone. They found no imitation in Massachusetts save in Marblehead, a purely English settlement, where Crowninshield was pronounced as if spelled G-r-u-n-s-e-l, and Florence as if spelled F-l-u-r-r-y. The English blood is also seen from the fact that in the earlier times, in the courts of New Hampshire, more form and ceremony

which he had entered December, 1829, to await the result of his mother's application for an appointment for him as cadet at the Military Academy. During this interval of waiting he seems to have pursued his studies with ardor. During a year he read, in Latin, Caesar's Commentaries and six of the orations of Cicero; in French, Telemaque and Charles XII of Sweden; in mathematics, Colburn's Arithmetic and Algebra, Walker's Geometry, Playfair's Euclid, and Trigonometry in Gummies' Surveying; Goodrich's History of the United States, Hart's Geography, and the greater part of Comstock's Chemistry and Natural Philosophy; which was doing very well for a lad of fifteen. The principal of the school pronounced him a boy of decided parts, of uncommon quickness of perception and readiness in acquiring knowledge; studious withal, and exceptionally correct in his deportment. This school, as well as the others, he left with the respect and good wishes of the teachers and the affection of his scho
t. While there is some variation in the trains of clocks and watches, and in other particulars, they are generally named according to the form of their escapement; as, — Anchor-escapement.Detached escapement. Chronometer-escapement.Duplex-escapement. Crown-wheel escapement.Electric-clock escapement. Cylinder-escapement.Horizontal escapement. Dead-beat escapement.Lever-escapement. Recoil-escapement.Vertical escapement. Remontoire-escapement.(Which see.) Verge-escapement. Goodrich, in 1799, substituted a crank for an escapement in clocks, and received a bounty of £ 65 from the London Society of Arts. Its advantage was silence. A number of curious and ingenious escapements may be found in works on horology, in Denison's volume in Weale's series; Brown's Five hundred and seven mechanical movements ; and Piaget's The watch; its history and manufacture.
