ole North was thrown into consternation and mourning over the massacre, as they termed it, and began reviling each other for urging McClellan to advance at all against Richmond. Massachusetts was particularly affected by the direful news, for two of its pet regiments (the Fifteenth and Twenty-third) had suffered fearfully, and many young men of the first families had fallen, including the promising son of the poet, Oliver Wendell Holmes, most of the men having been enrolled in Boston and Worcester. New-York also felt very much humbled on account of the decimation of the Forty-fourth, one of its crack regiments, which boasted of more professional pugilists and blackguards than any other from that State, except the red-legged Fire Zouaves. Pennsylvania was in mourning for the rout of the First California Regiment, (fifteen companies strong,) which had been raised by Baker in Philadelphia, and which was petted and feasted, and paraded at Washington by Lincoln himself, and called the

tiful banks of the Rio Nueces. All difficulties are to vanish before the energetic analyses of the Americans; and in the opinion of Sir George Bickley, K. G. C., the entire Mexican army will fly like cravens from the very first round of pure syntheticisms to which he proposes to subject it; nor do we blame him if, as he admits, at such a prospect, his heart swells. We should think it would. We do not wonder, when thus he meditates the easy glories of charge, with Webster in one hand and Worcester in the other, that he also declares that unless his gallant knights do their duty, future ages may well reprobate our dereliction. Our own opinion is that future ages will by no means let them off so easily; and will be satisfied with nothing less than penalties only to be expressed in words of ten syllables. Sir George touches upon one exceedingly interesting point. All adventurers who leave the scenes of their nativity to grapple with fortune in foreign lands have a pet grievance.

ope and General Rosecrans arrived from their camp on the Farmington road, and as they brought troops, I obtained permission from General Smith to pursue the enemy with our cavalry, which was sent for urgently. Some time elapsing without its arrival, I pushed on across the town with some Iowa cavalry, and finding near College Hill a house with a number of females in it, placed my remaining orderly in charge, directing him to prevent stragglers from annoy-Ing them. In about ten minutes Captain Worcester, Fourth Illinois Cavalry, came up with his company, and expressed his willingness to push on, but the colonel arriving, ordered it into line in front of the college. I had learned from an old man captured by the Iowans that many of the enemy's pickets were but a little way on, and from a negro that a piece of cannon was not far ahead. As the cavalry of your division did not move, I followed some cavalry already in the advance, and after a run of half a mile I overtook it. It proved
Rev. Dr. Worcester, of Salem, Mass., in addressing the City Guards of that city, previous to their departure for the war, closed his remarks amidst profound stillness, as follows:--Soldiers, on a memorable night of ancient battle, when a few men routed many thousands, their watch-cry was, The sword of the Lord and of Gideon. I give to you, soldiers, for your watch-cry, The sword of the Lord and of Washington. --Boston Transcript, May 11.

County, for the establishment of the aforesaid professorship. He was, for twenty-two years, a member of the Council. His virtues and popularity at first saved his estate, as his name was not included with those of his sons-in-law, Sir William Pepperell and George Erving, in the Conspirator's Act; but, on the representation of the Selectmen of Medford that he went voluntarily to our enemies, his property was forfeited and taken under the Confiscation Act. He made bequests to Medford and Worcester, and legacies to the clergymen. While a member of the House of Representatives, he presented the chandelier which adorns its hall. George Erving, Esq., merchant, of Boston, who married one of Colonel Royal's daughters, was a refugee included in the Conspirator's Act. He died in London, Jan. 16, 1806, aged 70. General Sir William Pepperell, baronet, was born at Kittery Point, Maine, in 1696. He died at Kittery, June 6, 1759. Colonel Royal was appointed one of the Mandamus Coun
scarcely necessary to remind the well-informed reader that the terms, Constitution of the Federal Government, employed above, and Federal Constitution, as used in other proceedings of that period, do not mean the instrument to which we now apply them, and which was not then in existence. They were applied to the system of government formulated in the Articles of Confederation. This is in strict accord with the definition of the word constitution, given by an eminent lexicographer: Dr. Worcester. The body of fundamental laws, as contained in written documents or prescriptive usage, which constitute the form of government for a nation, state, community, association, or society. This definition is very good as far as it goes, but the form of government is a phrase which falls short of expressing all that should be comprehended. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say, which constitute the form, define the powers, and prescribe the functions of government, etc. The words in i

In wood's annealing furnace, 1867, the box has track wheels. Its lower plate has an upwardly projecting rim to hold the sand used as luting. The top is a rectangular box, which is inverted over the pack of sheets, and is clamped at the bottom portion. The plates are held in rigid compression between the wagon bottom and the inverted box; the object being to prevent discoloration. The truck has wheels by which it traverses on the railway, and is thus run in and out of the oven. Worcester, September 25, 1860. This arrangement is intended to give a solid support to the bedplate of the box which contains the pack of sheetiron or the other iron articles which are to be annealed. When the carriage is run into the oven with its load, consisting of some tons of iron, if the bed-plate be supported in but a few places it is apt to warp, which is destructive of the apparatus and injurious to the load then under treatment. In this oven are dwarf-walls on the sides of the oven, be
r fifteen or sixteen centuries. Dr. Papin was the first, so far as we know, to suggest raising water by means of a steam-engine, 1698. The devices of the Marquis of Worcester and Savery were not engines. They were water-raising devices, in which steam pressed upon the surface of water in a tank and raised it to a hight proportioned to the pressure. They did not differ essentially (except in the size of the parts) from the inventions of Baptista Porta and Leonardo da Vinci. Savery and Worcester proposed to make their apparatus available for driving machinery by raising water to turn a water-wheel, which is all nonsense. Papin's was an engine. See steam-engine. A number of large water-raising machines were constructed at various points on the Continent of Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which are curious, but operate by modes which are now antiquated. Among these may be noticed the Machine de Marly, constructed by Rannequin, 1682, to raise water for
