and left sides respectively, the divided pencils are received by similar prisms, which give them a direction parallel to their original course; the interval of separation being determined by the distance between the central and lateral prisms. Wenham's binocular microscope has but a single prism, which reflects one half of the rays passing through the object-glass into the additional tube of the binocular body. Wenham's binocular microscope. This instrument can be used as a monocular or biWenham's binocular microscope. This instrument can be used as a monocular or binocular. In the former case the prism-box is drawn back so as to allow the whole of the rays from the object-glass to pass into the straight body. Bi-noc′u-lar Tel′e-scope. (Optics.) A pair of telescopes mounted in a stand, and having a parallel adjustment for the width between the eyes. The tubes have a coincident horizontal and vertical adjustment for altitude and azimuth. Galileo invented the binocular telescope with which he experimented in the harbor of Leghorn on a vessel <

The ring c and the basepiece beneath it are glazed, and, while not obstructing the light, form surfaces between which the object is flattened, or merely held. A compressorium. Lever-compressors. Compressors for the microscope are of various kinds; as, lever, reversible cell, parallel plate, Wenham's, etc. 4. (Pneumatics.) A machine for compressing air. See air-pump; compressed-air engine; aircompressing machine. Comrade-bat′ter-y. One of a pair of joint batteries. Con′cave. The curved bed or breasting in which a cylinder works, as in the case of a thrasher. Fig. 1409, the example, shows a concave in which each slat rests upon a spring, and the grain escapes through the intervening spaces. Cylinder and concave. Con′cave brick.

a second pair of similar prisms to the eye of the observer. This arrangement had the disadvantage of reversing the stereoscopic effect, projections appearing as depressions, and vice versa. The first arrangement for producing a correct stereoscopic effect was invented by Mr. Nachet, and consisted of an equilateral prism which divided the pencil of rays into two equal parts, reflecting them to two similar prisms, right and left hand, which reflected them to the eye of the observer. The Wenham binocular (Fig. 687, p. 285), in which the compound pencil is divided by means of a trapezoidal prism, has, however, on account of its greater simplicity of construction, been more generally employed. Mr. Nachet has since introduced a simpler form of binocular microscope, which may be applied to an ordinary instrument without altering its construction or impairing its usefulness as a monocular. This is effected by making an opening in the side of the tube, into which is introduced a rect
nt, and serves to reflect and condense the light on an object upon the stage when it cannot be illuminated by the mirror; it is movable, so that the light may be thrown on the object at different angles, that it may be more perfectly examined. Wenham's (c) is designed to divide the cone of rays proceeding from the objective, so that the magnified image may be viewed by both eyes. The prism is so placed in the tube that the pencil striking its lower surface undergoes little or no refraction. er eye; by this arrangement the rays passing through the left half of the objective are transmitted to the right eye, and those from the right half to the left eye.

By placing two prisms in reverse positions, the light decomposed by one is recomposed by the other, so as to exhibit a white beam. When two or more are so arranged that

It opened the route by Annapolis to Washington. It was recruited to the maximum for the nine months service at Camp Lander, at Wenham. It sailed from Boston on the seventh day of November, under the command of Colonel Frederick J. Coffin, for Newbern, N. C., with orders to report for duty to Ma, awaiting transportation to New Orleans, where it arrived in safety in the latter part of December. The Forty-eighth Regiment was recruited at Camp Lander, at Wenham, by Hon. Eben F. Stone, of Newburyport. Before its organization was completed, it was ordered to Camp Meigs, at Readville.

The regiment was mustered out of service at Wenham, July 2, 1863. The Sixth Regiment left the State Sept. 9, 1862, with orders to report at Washington. From thence it proceeded to Suffolk, Va., twenty-three miles from Norfolk, where there was a force of about five thousand. On the 17th, the of July, it marched within the fortifications, and did garrison duty until the 29th, when it took passage up the Mississippi on its way home; arrived at Cairo, Ill., Aug. 5, and proceeded by railroad to Boston, and was mustered out of service at Wenham, Aug. 24. The Fifty-first Regiment was in the Department of North Carolina. After a rough passage, it arrived at Beaufort, N. C., Nov. 30; proceeding by rail to Newbern, where it went into quarters in the unfinished barracks on the south side

ception and dinner in Faneuil Hall; Governor Andrew, not being able to attend, was represented by our old commander, General Hincks. From Boston we went to Salem, where we were royally entertained, and then broke ranks with orders to report at Wenham in thirty-five days. While our receptions were grand, and showed that our hard services were appreciated, our joys were mingled with sadness. Everywhere we met friends of the boys who did not march back with us, and our eyes were often filled wiile at home. The thirty days were like one long holiday; the towns gave receptions to the men, Company A being received by the town of West Newbury. The time soon came when we must march away, and at the end of thirty days every man reported at Wenham. We mustered five more than we brought home, --three deserters whom we had captured and two recruits. Two boys, Rogers and Fee, who were not old enough, stole away with us and were mustered in the field. I carried a new sword, presented by the
