sissippi and the Alleghanies. Nobody would believe him, while many persons pronounced him crazy; and shortly after, he was deprived of a command of which he was deemed unworthy. Before long he was to be gloriously avenged for this temporary injustice. The troops which he had been constantly drilling and exercising had but a trifling encounter with the enemy. Several Federal detachments advanced by a forced march as far as the borders of Green River, below Bowling Green, and on the 29th of October they surprised the Confederate posts established there. One of these small bodies of troops entered Morgantown, almost without striking a blow, and destroyed the enemy's depots; another, crossing the river at Woolbury, put the garrison to flight after a brisk engagement fought among the houses of that village. In the mean time, McClellan had succeeded Scott in the supreme command. One of his first acts was to send General Buell on the 4th of November to replace Sherman in Kentucky.
he first time on Franklin, who at once put him on his guard as to the British demands relating to debts and compensation of tories; but he could not recall his word. On the thirtieth, the American commissioners met 30. Oswald and Strachey, and for four several days they discussed the unsettled points of the treaty. Jay and Franklin had left the north-eastern boundary to be settled by commissioners after the war. It is due to John Adams, who had taken the precaution Chap. XXIX.} 1782. Oct. 29. to obtain from the council of Massachusetts authenticated copies of every document relating to the question, that it was definitively established in the treaty itself. On the north-west it was agreed that the line should be drawn through the centre of the water communications of the great lakes to the Lake of the Woods. The British commissioners denied to the Americans the right of drying fish on Newfoundland. Nov. This was, after a great deal of conversation, agreed to by John Adams as
g messages for dear ones at home, fearing that a few days more would bring mental or physical death. Deliverance came soon enough to allow Benjamin Ellis and Augustus Tufts to come home to die. One by one these prisoners have dropped out of life since the war, and now Capt. Hutchins, J. Henry Eames and Milton F. Roberts are the only ones who can tell that dreadful tale of living death. On August 21, the Confederates tried for the last time to recover Weldon Railroad. At Hatcher's Run, October 29, Sergt. Edwin B. Hatch of the Light Guard was killed. During December, 1864, five men were transferred from Co. C, to other posts of duty. At that time the regiment was so depleted that the State colors were sent home, there not being enough men to protect two flags. February 3, 2d Lieut. Wm. McDevitt of Woburn was transferred from Co. K and placed in command of the remnant of Co. C, and continued until the surrender of Lee, when Capt. Hutchins returned to the company. March 29 the sp

or. The selectmen's records of 1819 show the sum of $42.00, in sums of one and two dollars, distributed among twenty-three persons, and also a contribution of $96.oo more, in sums of three to five dollars for the same purpose. James T. Floyd was the sexton, and the selectmen allowed his bill for setting glass and painting bell frame, in all $29.00; but we fancy the sexton's bill was larger the following year, for in the winter of 1819-20 came an innovation in the old meeting-house. On October 29 the selectmen approved Moses Merrill's bill for cast-iron stoves and funnel, $20.00. Just think of it, all you who have furnace repairs to make just a century later—a heating plant for $20.00! But how about $200 for Parson Osgood's supply of wood for the same year, deducted from the $500 salary? Even with the high price of coal in 1919, the average householder today would deem it a hardship to pay $200 for a year's fuel, to say nothing of spending two-fifths of his income for warmth.

solid, worthy and reliable men and women of old Medford, attired in the style of their day, appeared before a delighted company as the speaker told of them and of their faith and works. Mystic Church is fortunate in having three such faithful chroniclers as these, but Pastor Richards avers that much credit is due Deacon H. N. Ackerman, president of the Historical Society, for getting together the portraits for the preparation of the needful slides and their suitable inscription. On Sunday, October 29, Rev. Nehemiah Boynton, D. D., a son of the church, came home to preach the closing sermon of the anniversary. We quote a few passages:— This was my church into which I was born. To it I owe more than to any other institution in the world. It has permeated my life. It was the church of my father and mother, where they obtained grace and patience to train the children. The constable and the schoolmaster worshipped here. I can see Rev. Solon Cobb— with a mustache every boy envi

The Daily Dispatch: November 21, 1860., [Electronic resource], The interview between Victor Emanuel and Garibaldi. (search)
The interview between Victor Emanuel and Garibaldi. --A letter from Naples, dated the 29th of October, gives the following account of the interview between Victor Emanuel and Garibaldi: Garibaldi had taken up his quarters at a small inn about four miles and a half between Teano and Speranzano, on the 25th. He ordered his column to advance and take up position, and sent Count Trecchi to see the King. On the following morning Count Trecchi and Missouri came to inform him that Cialdini was within an hour's march, and the King not far behind. Garibaldi left immediately with his staff, and three quarters of an hour afterwards he came in sight of the head of the Piedmontese column. He put spurs to his horse. The Piedmontese advanced as follows: The Twenty-third and Twenty-fourth regiments of the Como brigade, the Twenty-sixth and Twenty seventh of Pinerolo's brigade, then a battery of rifled cannon. The columns presented arms to Garibaldi, and opened to allow him t
o from the Sombrero Islands, arrived at this port on the night of the 28th.--From the vessel's log, the Crocus left the Island of Guadalupe on the 7th of October, with a clear bill of health, and not until the 23d of that month, while loading at the Island of Sombrero, did the misfortunes of her Captain commence. On that day his youthful wife, to whom he had been married only five months, died on the Island of the fever which had been prevalent at Guadalupe early in the autumn. On the 29th of October the vessel, with a crew of ten men all told, three of whom were doomed never more to see the land, left Sombrero for this port, all in excellent health. When out three or four days the mate was taken sick, and remained so during the entire voyage, not being well enough at any time to be on duty. John Cordery, a foreigner, was taken sick about the same time that the mate was, and died, of the bilious fever, on the 3rd of November. On the 16th of November, about 10 o'clock, A. M.,

Views of General Scott. The following are the views of Gen. Scott, as transmitted to the President on the 29th of October: To save time, the right of secession may be conceded, and instantly balanced by the correlative right, on the part of the Federal Government, against an inferior State or States, to re-establish by force, if necessary, its former continuity of territory.--[Paley's Moral and Political Philosophy, last chapter.] But break this glorious Union by whatever line or lines that political madness may contrive, and there would be no hope of reuniting the fragments except by the laceration and despotism of the sword. To effect such result the intestine wars of our Mexican neighbors would, in comparison with ours, sink into mere child's play. A smal
