federacy holding out opportunities to blockade runners. These came in under the protection of Fort Fisher at the mouth of the river 20 miles below the city. The fort was a formidable one, mounting 44 guns, and had a garrison of 1400 men under Col. Lamb. A military and naval expedition set out against it on Dec. 13, 1864, under Gen. Butler and Adm. Porter in a fleet of 50 war vessels and 100 transports carrying 6500 infantry. The fleet was the largest ever assembled under the Federal flag, a palisades, made a lodgment between the traverses, and after seven hours fighting possessed the fort. When Bragg took command of the land forces, Whiting, who had commanded the whole post before, took command of the fort. He was mortally, and Col. Lamb desperately, wounded in the defence. The loss of the infantry assaulting column was 110 killed, 536 wounded. During the winter, the Confederate lines about Petersburg had been constantly extended at both ends, it has been already explained
d rolling heavily, as if partially filled with water. Thus in this first encounter in our waters, victory remains with us. The troops that achieved it were a company from Columbus, Ga., Capt. Colquitt, and the Woodis Rifles, from this place, Capt. Lamb. A detachment of the Junior Rifles of this place were also in the work. The men, all accounts agree, exhibited the coolness and courage of veterans. No troops could have behaved better. When the affair was ended, Captains Colquitt and LamLamb both made speeches to the command, and complimented them on their gallant and soldierly bearing. Gen. Gwynn, who was present during a part of the engagement, also spoke in high terms of the bravery that the troops exhibited. As usual, in the battles that have thus far occurred during the present singular war, nobody was hurt. That is, nobody on our side, except one man who got a bruised shin from a spent fragment of a shell, and Col. Collier, aid to Gen. Gwynn, who, I learn, was rapped so
kings they made were like sacks; and their gloves had no separation for the fingers. It looked very odd, too, to see moustachioed fellows sitting before their doors spinning, knitting, and gossiping like so many old women. — Travels in Tartary. Lamb's knitting-machine. Lamb's knitting-machine (Fig. 2678) is given as an example of that class which employs straight rows of needles in contradistinction to the machines using a circular system of needles, and to the singleneedle machine. In tLamb's knitting-machine (Fig. 2678) is given as an example of that class which employs straight rows of needles in contradistinction to the machines using a circular system of needles, and to the singleneedle machine. In the Lamb machine, a tubular web is produced by the operation of two straight parallel rows of needles, widening and narrowing being accomplished by increasing or diminishing the number of needles in action. The frame is attached by thumb-screws to the edge of a table, and has its two upper sides inclined towards each other, their upper edges being separated far enough to allow the fabric produced to pass down between them. Supported by the needle-bed is a carriage, reciprocated by means of a
Laid-on. (Joinery.) A term applied to moldings which are got out in strips and nailed on to the surface of the object. Laid-pa′per.

A reeding is a form of molding resembling a number of bands. Lamb's tongue is a form sometimes adapted for window-sash. A raking molding has a slanting overhang. A crowning molding is a top member. A plain molding is a mere band. The student of paleontology finds numerous anticipations of architectural and other ornamentation in the strata of the earth.
