Hubbardton, battle at. Generals Fraser and Riedesel, with British and German troops, began a pursuit of the Americans as soon as their flight from Ticonderoga was discovered. They overtook their rear-guard, about 1,200 strong, July 7, 1777, at Hubbardton, Vt. The main body of St. Clair's army had marched towards Castleton, leaving the rear-guard, under Col. Seth Warner, to gather up stragglers. While waiting their arrival, Warner was struck by the van of the pursuers, and a sharp engagement took place. Colonel Francis, of New Hampshire, was killed. The Americans were dispersed, and fled, excepting 200 who were made prisoners. The pursuers lost almost as many in killed and wounded, and soon gave up the chase. St. Clair, with about 200 men, made his way through the woods to Fort Edward. The Americans also lost 120 in killed and wounded. The British captured about 200 stand of arms.

He proposed the enterprise to the Massachusetts committee of safety, and was commissioned a colonel by the Provincial Congress, and furnished with means and authority to raise not more than 400 men in western Massachusetts and lead them against the forts. On reaching Stockbridge, he was disappointed in learning that another expedition was on the way. He hastened to join it, and claimed the right to the chief command by virtue of his commission.

The common irregularly shaped black slate-pencils, once the only kind known, are made in Germany. These have been pretty much superseded in this country by the softer, neater, and greatly superior article, known as soapstone pencils, made from a peculiar stone found near Castleton, Vt. This stone contains over 50 per cent of silica, a large proportion of alumina, and also some potash and iron; and, while having some resemblance to soapstone, more nearly resembles slate in texture and capability of being split readily into plates. In the manufacture of pencils, it is first split into slabs 1 to 2 inches thick, which are then sawn into blocks 6 to 7 inches long and 4 or 5 inches wide. With a thin blade of steel and a hammer these are split into plates about one thir
