oxygen of the air would suffuse the curtains of a room with moisture, and would render it necessary to wring out the curtains and other linen furniture of the apartments on the morning subsequent to the illumination by the burning of the coal smoke. — Monthly Magazine, London, June 1, 1805. In 1803 – 4, Winsor lighted the Lyceum Theater and took out a patent for lighting streets by gas. He established the first gas-company. In 1804 – 5, Murdoch lighted the cotton-factory of Philips and Lee, Manchester, the light being estimated as equal to 3,000 candles. This was the largest undertaking up to that date. In 1807, Winsor lighted one side of Pall Mall, London; the first street lighting. Westminster Bridge was lighted in 1813. Houses of Parliament, London, in the same year. Streets of London generally, 1815. Streets of Paris, the same year. James McMurtrie proposed to light streets of Philadelphia, 1815. Baltimore commenced the use of gas, 1816. Boston, 1822.<

The general principle upon which all these chemical methods is based is the treatment of vegetable material containing the fibrous matter with alkaline lyes under high pressures of steam and corresponding temperatures for a greater or less time, in order to separate the fibrous matter from the gluten,
to be warmed. By another method pipes from a steam-boiler were inclosed in other pipes, and the air heated during its passage between them. About this time steam was applied to heating hot-houses by being discharged directly into them, thus raising the temperature and affording a greatly increased supply of moisture, which was said to have the effect of causing the plants to vegetate luxuriantly and of destroying insects. In 1799, Boulton and Watt constructed a heating apparatus, in Lee's factory, Manchester, in which the steam was conducted through cast-iron pipes, which also served as supports to the floor. See also heating apparatus, pages 1088-1091. One of the first buildings heated by steam is said to have been a silk-mill at Waterford, in Hertfordshire. It was 106 × 33 feet. 4 stories high. A furnace was built on the outside, and from the boiler rose a stand-pipe which had branches suspended from the ceiling of each story. The lower story had a pipe 5 inches in
nd, by the rotation of the cutting-cylinder, are carried around the winding tapering passage c c until they are entirely reduced to fine cuttings. See pulp-grinder, Figs. 4015-4018. See also pulp-Di-Gester, pulp-dresser, etc, pages 1821-1825. Lee's wood-cutter (English) consists of a massive cast-iron disk, to which a knife is secured, which, revolving at a great speed (200 to 300 revolutions per minute), slices off sections, half an inch thick, from the ends of stout timber balks into an wood. The wood is then crushed, strained, and made into paper, which is rolled on mandrels and partially bleached by exposure to chlorine gas, or fully so by treatment with lime-water, carbonate of soda, and chloride of lime, successively. In Lee's process (English) the wooden chips are digested in a solution of caustic soda at 220° Fah. Koop's English patent, 1802, describes the use of straw, hay, thistles, hemp, and flax refuse, wood, and bark, for making printing and other paper.

lie dragged him to the light, and beheld—an astonished hospital nurse in quest of water. Thus ended the ever memorable event known in our company as the battle of Benson's Hill, so called, from the name of the man on whose farm it might have occurred; on which occasion we seemed in all but numbers like the King of France, as sung by Mother Goose, who with forty thousand men marched up a hill and then marched down again. We returned to camp at noon; but our troubles did not end here. Gen. Lee was now fairly launched on his great invasion of the North, and our isolated position seemed one fraught with much danger. Now and then the sound of distant cannonading told of cavalry contests between opposing armies as both were pressing northward, but we could hear nothing definite about what was actually taking place. Four days after the raid at Muddy Branch, or Seneca, the centre section was summoned from the Ferry. We threw up rifle-pits on Benson's Hill (our first experience in t
