then assembled, mainly upon Humboldt, at the intersection of the Memphis and Louisville and Mobile and Ohio Railroads—a point having central relation and railroad communication with the principal towns in west Tennessee and north Mississippi. A strong line of infantry outposts was established from Union City, on the left, to Lexington, on the right, by the way of Dresden and Huntington, protected by a line of cavalry pickets thrown well out in advance, from Hickman, on the Mississippi, to Paris, near the Tennessee River. Mounted parties, supplied with light artillery, patrolled the west bank of the latter stream, and kept General Beauregard well informed of the movements of the enemy's boats. During the evacuation of Columbus, reports of great preparations for an offensive movement had reached General Beauregard from the Federal rendezvous at Cairo, Paducah, and Fort Henry. Pope's forces were then moving upon New Madrid, the left of our river defences, and it seemed evident th

It is also interesting as being the first machine in which change-wheels were used, and is the germ of the screw-cutting lathe. — Thirion, 4to, Paris, 1741. Fu-see′--wind′lass.

Latini of Florence, the preceptor of Dante, in a work published in Paris in 1260, entitled the Treasure, wrote thus:— When I was in England, Friar Bacon showed me a magnet,—an ugly black stone to which iron doth willingly cling. You rub a needle upon it; the which needle, being placed upon a point, remains suspewas subdued by the Moors. An authority states that it was known in Norway previous to 1266. Dr. Gilbert, physician to Queen Elizabeth, states that P. Venutus brought a compass direct from China in 1260. See Klaproth's work on this subject, Paris, 1834; Sir Snow Harris's Rudimentary magnetism ; the researches of Biot, Stanislaus Julien, etc. About 1320, Flavio Gioja, a pilot of Positano, not far from Amalfi in the Kingdom of Naples, was instrumental in the improvement of the compass, a

As described by Mersennus ( Harmonicorum, Paris, 1636) it had 49 strings, of which the lower 30 were made of latten (flat brass wire) and the re interposed a layer of cloth or soft buff leather between the strings and the jacks. Tarquin of Paris first substituted buff leather for the quills in 1768. Schobert had a double tier of strings withe key is removed. The hammer is leather-faced, and is caught by a silken string. Marius of Paris submitted four of his instruments for examination by the Academy of Sciences in 1716, calling th in the stroke of the hammer. He died in 1831.

Assyrian arched drain of the Northwest palace Nimroud, and (b) one of the Southeast palace on the same old site. All the arches yet discovered are of brick, made of voussoir shape for the purpose. Some are sun-baked, and others kiln-burned. The greatest span found is 15 feet. They are usually semicircular. The only exception is that shown at b, in which ordinary bricks are used, the extrados being gained by wedges of mortar. In no modern city, perhaps, is the system so complete as in Paris. Its origin dates back as far as the year 1412. The excavations made in order to obtain the limestone of which the city is largely built, and the catacombs, were subsequently made available for sewerage purposes, and now few streets are without these subterranean channels. The principal ones convey both foul and clean water, the former flowing along a trench at the bottom and the latter through pipes supported on brackets.
