uence. Orders were received from Major-General Cheatham to bivouac in line of battle for the remainder of the night. On the twentieth my brigade was not actively engaged, being held as a reserve. We were, however, subjected to a heavy artillery fire, killing and wounding several men. Late in the evening we were ordered to the extreme right, where we remained until the morning of the twenty-first September. I then ordered the battalion of sharpshooters, under command of Majors Green and Pearl, to deploy (so as to cover the front of my brigade) and move as far as the top of Missionary Ridge, or discover the whereabouts of the enemy. In a short time, they reported the enemy in the valley around Chattanooga. At three o'clock P. M., we were ordered to the extreme right of the line, and bivouacked for the night near Byrd's Mill. On the morning of the twenty-second of September we moved, on the Shallon Ford road, in the direction of Chattanooga. When we arrived at the foot of M

g him to the President's seat, but fiercely hostile upon questions affecting every power of nationality and the existence of the federal government. Washington was never dramatic, but on great occasions he not only rose to the full ideal of the event, he became himself the event. One hundred years ago today, the procession of foreign ambassadors, of statesmen and generals, of civic societies and military companies, which escorted him, marched from Franklin Square to Pearl street, through Pearl to Broad, and up Broad to this spot, but the people saw only Washington. As he stood upon the steps of the old government building here, the thought must have occurred to him that it was a cradle of liberty, and, as such, giving a bright omen for the future. In these halls in 1735, in the trial of John Zenger, had been established, for the first time in its history, the liberty of the press. Here the New York Assembly, in 1764, made the protest against the Stamp Act, and proposed the gene

The storage of prepared clay, to allow it time to ferment and ripen before using. The slip, consisting of levigated clay and flint, is run in a thin solution through sieves and brought to a creamy consistence. This is boiled down to give it more solidity, and is then stored away, sometimes for years, being occasionally cut out in chunks and slapped to expel air and develop the plasticity. During the ageing process a slight fermentation occurs, carbonic acid and sulphureted hydrogen are

The name is conferred upon nuts and bolt-heads of that form. Also upon gravers which are rhombal, and not square in crosssection. 3. A valuable gem, the hardest of all, and of various colors. It has many uses in the mechanic arts, derived from its extreme hardness; some uses in optics, owing to its high refractive and small dispersive power. Sp. gr. 3.521.

but revivals of old modes. We have spoken in this article, and under bread, of the Roman preference for decorticated grain, rasped in a mortar and then simply broken. The Hungarian plan, which may have been in use for centuries, is to decorticate the grain and remove the bran, and then rasp the hulled kernels between a complicated series of differently speeded fluted rolls. Other devices for this purpose are referred to under Decorticator; and allied machines are referred to under huller. Pearl barley, hominy, and grits are hulled grains. The ventilating of millstones, by a blast of air in at the eye and out at the skirt, is old as Gendebein and Houyet's patent, January 5, 1847. They proposed to use plenum or vacuum. Oliver Evans's hopper-boy patent, a means of feeding grain to the millstone, was pronounced by Thomas Jefferson so important that the inventor ought not to be allowed a patent on it, it being an absolute necessity to a miller when once discovered.

It consists generally of a font of type containing Roman capitals (caps.), small capitals (small caps.), small letters (lower case), with a proper proportion of Italic caps. and italic lower-case letters. Technical works require numerous sorts in addition to the above. See font. Body letter is distinguishable by the size of the type, those in most common use being — Pearl. Agate. Nonpareil. Minion. Brevier. Bourgeois. Long Primer. Small Pica. Pica. Half-minion, half-brevier, and diamond, sizes smaller than pearl, are used in notes of reference, side-notes, etc., but rarely for body letter. English, Columbian, great primer, and paragon, larger than pica, are used in circulars, display, and some legal works. Sizes larger than these are multiples of a smaller body (generally pica, known as 2-line pica, 3-line pica, etc.), and are use
ce of cork or a bit of soft wood. The acid tends to develop finely the striated structure of the shell. In some turned works fine emerypaper may be used, and followed with rotten-stone moistened with the acid, or some limpid oil instead. The grinding or polishing material may be applied to the surface of wheels covered with cloth and moistened with water, the pumice-stone, and the rotten-stone. Sometimes dry powdered chalk or Spanish whiting is used in the place of the rotten-stone. Pearl may be engraved in relief, by the aid of corrosive acids and the etching-point. The designs or patterns are drawn upon the shell with asphaltum varnish; strong nitric acid is then brushed over the plates repeatedly, until the parts undefended by the varnish are sufficiently eaten away by the acid. The varnish being washed off with turpentine, the device, which the acid has not touched, is found in relief. Moth-trap. An attachment to a beehive to catch the moth, — miller, as it is fam
