; and as it was necessary to hold Columbus until the works at Island No.10 and in the Bend should be ready to defend the river, General Polk was to maintain a vigilant watch and repel vigorously all attempts at reconnoissance, by land or by water. A few days later, he was instructed to open a road across the difficult country opposite Island No.10, and to establish a telegraph line between the Island and Humboldt, or Union City, via Obionville, as a line of communication. The cavalry, at Paris, was to watch and report the passage of any gunboats or transports up the Tennessee River, from the direction of Fort Henry, extending its pickets as near as possible to Mayfield, which was then occupied by Federal cavalry, keeping the latter always in sight, and, if compelled to retire, to burn the bridges and thus hinder reconnoissances. In view of the great importance of New Madrid, General Polk was further instructed to send as strong a garrison thither as he could, including most of

dvance across the river so soon as supplies can be obtained. On the same day General Beauregard had sent General Cooper a corresponding telegram, in the following words: Tuscumbia, Ala., November 3d, 1864:9 A. M. General S. Cooper, Adjt.-Genl., Richmond, Va.: Part of the army occupied Florence, but want of supplies and bad weather have delayed forward movement, which will be resumed as soon as practicable. G. T. Beauregard. On the same day General Forrest, telegraphing via Paris, West Tennessee, and Corinth, Miss., forwarded to General Beauregard a despatch, thus describing the result of his encounter with the enemy: My batteries, on the Tennessee River, have engaged the enemy all day with great success. Two gunboats and two transports were destroyed in attempting to pass. One gunboat and two transports are now in my possession, ready for use; but the other gunboat and transport floated down the river in a disabled condition, and both will be either destroyed
ts. Tycho Brahe, about the same period, made material improvements on the landgrave's instruments, and constructed a quadrant capable of showing single minutes. He afterwards erected an observatory on the island of Huen, under the patronage of the king of Denmark; it was furnished with quadrants, sextants, circles, astrolabes, globes, clocks, and sun — dials. These instruments were divided to single minutes, and some were so divided as to read to ten seconds. The royal observatory at Paris was completed in 1671, and was placed in charge of M. Cassini, after having been furnished with instruments at a very great expense. The Greenwich Observatory was erected five years later; Flamstead, under the title of Astronomer Royal, was its first superintendent. The Yale College Observatory was started in 1828, a donation made by Mr. Clark being expended in buying a telescope of Mr. Dollond of London. It has a focal length of ten feet, and five inches aperture. The Williams Col
to produce an opposite electrical state in surrounding bodies. In-duc′tion-coil. A compound coil by which voltaic or dynamic electricity is converted into static electricity or electricity of high tension. The discoveries of Faraday, Henry, Bequerel, and others led the way to the invention of the induction-coil, and it is believed that the first practically useful device of the kind was contrived by the late Dr. Charles G. Page of Washington. Induction-apparatus. Ruhmkorff, of Paris, having made many instruments of the kind and contrived various improvements, the instrument is now very generally called by his name. It consists essentially of an inner coil of coarse wire surrounding a core of soft iron rods, and connected with the poles of a voltaic battery. It is itself surrounded by, though insulated from, a coil of copper wire composed of a great number of convolutions, and connected with the discharging conductor.
