ead was extended, it was found to be impracticable to set assizes in small towns and villages, and, notwithstanding the fewness of the bakers in such places gave them greater facilities for combining together, the price of bread was almost uniformly lower in them than in places where assizes were set. In consequence partly of this circumstance, but still more of the increase of intelligence as to such matters, the practice of setting an assize was gradually relinquished in most places, and in 1815 it was expressly abolished by an act of the Legislature (55 George III., c. 99) in London and its environs. In other places, though the power to set an assize still subsists, it is seldom acted upon, and has fallen into comparative disuse." It appears, then, that the assize of bread so far from having produced a beneficial effect in London and Paris, has been discarded as pernicious, and the laws upon the subject suffered to fall entirely into disuse.

The Alamo fell, but not until all of her defenders had suffered martyrs' deaths at the hands of cruel and treacherous Mexicans. The only souls left out of the one hundred and thirty-six to tell the tale of its slaughter was Mrs. Dickinson and a negro. Our guns were captured there and taken by the conquerors to the City of Mexico. In 1847, when Gen. Scott entered the City of Mexico, he espied the old gun among the trophies of war in the capital of the Montezuma, and caused it to be removed to the city of New Orleans, where it remained until the beginning of the present war, when it was put into the celebrated Washington battery and carried to Vicksburg and used against the United States, for whom it had done service for three-quarters of a century. On the 4th of July, when Vicksburg, the great stronghold of Mississippi, fell,
