private in the ranks. But Southern officers, as well, rich and poor alike, found desolation at home in 1865. Compare with the preceding scenes the ruins of this handsome residence of the Pinckneys, one of the most distinguished Charleston families. It stood in the middle of a whole square, commanding a fine view of Charleston Harbor. When James Glenn arrived in 1743 as royal governor, he selected this mansion as his official residence. It was occupied in succession by Governors Glenn, Lyttleton, Boone, and Lord Charles Montague, while Charles Pinckney was in Europe and his son was attaining majority. During those years there were many stately dinners here. These ruins were the scene of Charleston's gayest colonial life. This is said in no spirit of time-serving or apology. The South has nothing for which to apologize. She believes that the late struggle between the States was war and not rebellion, revolution and not conspiracy, and that her convictions were as honest as
used. Since that time the tendency has been to reduce the length of the spiral. We find notices of the suggested or experimental use of the screw-propeller by Hooke, 1680; Duquet, 1727; Pancton, 1768; Watt, 1780; Seguin, 1792; Fulton, 1794; Cartwright, 1798; Shorter, 1802. The idea of propelling vessels by a screw in lieu of oars is mentioned in the Machines et Inventions approuvees par l'academie Royale des Sciences depuis 1727 jusqu à 1731. Franklin suggested the same thing. Lyttleton's English patent, in 1794, for an aquatic propeller consisted of a screw of one, two, or more threads wrapped around a cylinder, and revolving in a frame placed at the head, stern, or side of a vessel. The credit of the first application of the screwpro-peller for marine propulsion is undoubtedly due to Colonel John Stevens, of Hoboken, N. J. In 1804, he constructed a boat with twin screws, which attained a very considerable speed. The machinery of this boat (a, Fig. 4747), which was 5
a long distance. At two o'clock on Saturday morning we were again in the saddle and a few hours afterward Captain Pierce, of the Third New York, charged into Lyttleton and captured a rebel commissary, ten men and three wagons loaded with ammunition, rations and forage. One of the wagons proved to be one that had last year beenat the selling price of that beverage was three dollars a glass. At daybreak on Monday the march was resumed, and General Kautz, having discovered upon reaching Lyttleton that it was rumored through the country that General Smith was in the neighborhood of Petersburg, the column was headed to the north, and we began our march for City Point. A few miles from Lyttleton the advance met and scattered a party of home guards, under Major Belger. No further annoyance was met with, and at evening the column had reached the Norfolk and Petersburg railroad, about four miles south of the latter place. The track was torn up and the bridge burned here, cutting off a

fiance of severe penalties, the Saxons sold their own kindred into slavery on the continent; nor could the traffic be checked, till religion, pleading the cause of humanity, made its appeal to conscience. Even after the conquest, slaves were exported from England to Ireland, till the reign 1102. of Henry II., when a national synod of the Irish, to remove the pretext for an invasion, decreed the emancipation of all English slaves in the island. Wilkins's Concilia, i. 383, 471. compare Lyttleton's Henry II. III. O. Turner. Lingard, Anderson. The German nations made the shores of the Baltic the scenes of the same desolating traffic; and the Dnieper formed the highway on which Russian merchants conveyed to Constantinople the slaves that had been purchased in the markets of Russia. The wretched often submitted to bondage, as the bitter but only refuge from absolute want. But it was the long wars between German and Slavonic tribes which imparted to the slave-trade its greatest

Its public men were ruled by their sense of honor, and felt a stain upon it as a wound. A Carolinian in the time of Lyttleton, had been abruptly dismissed from the King's Council; and from that day it became the pride of native Carolinians not to accept a seat in that body.
