from my centre and right to the left, to support General Iverson and my left. The Forty-fifth and Second battalion, under command of Lieutenant-Colonels Boyd and Andrews, moved forward under a murderous fire of artillery in the most gallant manner to a fence under cover of a slight eminence, and engaged the enemy at short range, amber that entered the fight. All acted with courage and coolness, but it fell to the lot of the Forty-fifth, Lieutenant-Colonel Boyd; Second battalion, Lieutenant-Colonel Andrews, and the Thirty-second, Colonel Brabble, to meet the heaviest efforts of the enemy. This they did in the most gallant manner, repulsing them at every ad wound, more severe than the first, compelled him to retire; both of these officers were wounded while leading their men in an advance upon the enemy. Lieutenant-Colonel Andrews, Second North Carolina battalion, was killed July 1st while gallantly leading his men in a charge. Major Hancock, of this battalion, at the same time r

ildren are the victims. He said: Your Governor is responsible for this. How so? I replied. Who ever heard, he said, of an evacuated city being left a depot of liquor for an army to occupy. I found one hundred and twenty casks of whiskey in one cellar. Your Governor, being a lawyer or a judge, refused to have it destroyed, as it was private property, and now my men have got drunk and have got beyond my control and this is the result. Perceiving the officer on horseback, he said: Captain Andrews, did I not order that this thing should be stopped? Yes, General, said the Captain, but the first division that came in soon got as drunk as the first regiment that occupied the town. Then sir, said General Sherman, go and bring in the second division; I hold you personally responsible for its immediate cessation. The officer darted off and Sherman bade me good evening. I am sure it was not more than an hour and a half from the time that General Sherman gave his order before the cit

a turbine-shaped wheel as a centrifugal pump, the process being inverted so that, in place of obtaining power by means of descending water, we may raise water by applying a given power. The centrifugal pump known as the Gwynne pump was used by Andrews and Brother in New York in 1844. Centrifugal pumps. In Fig. 1216 are shown several forms of the centrifugal pump, differing more in detail and proportion than in principle. A shows Gwynne's centrifugal pump, which has six equidistant pwo in number in each drum. As in the other pumps, the form of the helices is professedly such as to make the section of passage inversely proportional to the velocity of the water at different distances from the center. Centrifugal pump. Andrews's centrifugal pump (D, Fig. 1216) resembles a helix or snail's shell, which forms the base of a double cone placed with its axis in a horizontal position, the space between the inner and outer cones being the chamber of the pump, and occupied by
ing fillings. Per-mu-ta′tion-lock. (Locksmithing.) A lock which the moving parts are capable of transposition, so that, being arranged in any concerted order, it becomes necessary before shooting the bolt to arrange the tumblers. The letter-lock (which see) appears to have been the earliest of this class; and locks on the same principle, but of more complicated mechanism, still form a favorite subject of invention. The permutation principle was introduced into tumbler-locks by Dr. Andrews of New Jersey, about 1841. The tumblers are capable of variable adjustment, and the key has a series of small shiftable steel rings of such radii as to suit the variable tumblers. To this succeeded the Hobbs lock, invented by Newell of New York, which is provided with a series of secondary tumblers separated from the main tumblers by a wall; the secondary tumblers have notches corresponding to teeth on a series of intermediate tumblers, which teeth correspond to the hights of the main

an, with its rich contents scattered around the unhappy wretch's head. The peculiar cause and circumstance of his death was some subject of remark, when a little North Carolina lad curtly replied, Ah, boys! He took his sweetened. The Yankee loss was quite severe — nearly all killed outright; about fifty prisoners were taken. Our loss was principally in wounded. The whole column was again formed, pursued on, and came up with the Yankees near the railroad. A charge was ordered. Colonel Andrews, of the Second North Carolina, gallantly led his regiment forward, closely followed by the other two regiments of the brigade. The first position of the Yankees was carried, but on reaching their second position it was discovered that the enemy had effectually barricaded the road, and had his artillery so posted as to rake it with a most galling fire. The charging column here retired in good order, losing several men and horses by the Yankee grape and canister thrown among them. Dism

who finds himself called upon to do something which offends his conscience. Garrison earnestly urged the renomination of Lincoln against the bitter opposition of Wendell Phillips, who always strangely misunderstood the President. Now at last the virtues of the Abolitionists began to be generally recognized. In 1864 George Thompson, who nearly thirty years before had barely escaped violence from proslavery mobs, returned to America. He was given a public reception in Boston, with Governor Andrews in the chair, and at Washington a short time afterwards, he was invited by the House of Representatives to deliver a lecture in their hall. Garrison, too, was treated with great respect when he visited the national capital, and in the last month of the war, at the invitation of Secretary Stanton, he was present at the raising of the flag on Fort Sumter on the fourth anniversary of its capture. Dr. Cuyler, of Brooklyn, records that while he was standing with Garrison in the streets of

ar the rebel works that we could throw a stone over, and no man on either side could show his head without getting a shot. Rations could not be brought to us until we dug a trench over the hill to the rear, which we did the second night. The second day we were in this place we saw a pile of dirt in our front, on a little knoll, and once in a while a shot would be fired, followed by a yell. Mark Kimball, Gus Bridges, Frank Osborne and Milt Ellsworth dug out and found Alonzo W. Bartlett of Andrews, Mass., sharpshooter. Bart. had come out after the body of the colonel of the 8th New York, who fell at the foot of the rebel works. He had managed to get a rope around the body, but the rebels made it so hot that he was forced to intrench, which he did with his dipper, and was fighting the war on his own hook. His face was cut and bleeding from gravel stones which had struck him, but he had held his own, and having a good rifle with plenty of ammunition thought he could hold out as lon
