No further event of importance occurred defenses to strengthen the left, and, in the morning, Williams' and Leyden's battalions of artillery were supported by my infantry, under coveere promptly stopped. The battalion of Georgia artillery, under Major Leyden, was engaged with Colonel Trigg on Saturday, and that of Captainan important position on the left. Captain Peeble's battery, of Major Leyden's command, sustained a small loss in the engagement. No opportuf his guns was offered in that quarter of the field. I refer to Major Leyden's report for detail. The next morning, I ordered the burial ods and posted on an eminence, as a support to three batteries of Major Leyden's battalion of artillery.

About July, 1863, Major Leyden, commanding the Ninth Georgia Battalion of Artillery, then stationed at Knoxville, Tenn., received an order to move hi or thirty miles) night overtook us without our having encountered the Federal raiders referred to. About this time Major Leyden received an order issued by General Buckner, then stationed at Knoxville, Tenn., stating that the raiders referred to ia railroad, near Loudon, Tenn., and was then marching along said railroad in the direction of Knoxville, and ordering Major Leyden, if possible, to send back one battery of artillery, so as to reach Knoxville by sun up next morning, to assist him (G hard day's march. I being the junior Captain of the battalion and the youngest man, volunteered to go, provided that Major Leyden would give me a section of Captain Atkinson's battery of Columbus, Ga., with his best horses and youngest men, to mana

In Harris's electrometer the beam is suspended from an insulated post; one scale, carrying the weight, has its seat upon a post; the other scale is a disk which is suspended above a similar disk electrized by connection with a charged Leyden jar. Henley's quadrant electrometer has a pendulous pith-ball whose deflections are measured by a graduated arc. Bal′ance-frames. (Shipbuilding.)

evance to the subject of chairs, it may be mentioned that he took over fourteen ounces of quinine in curing himself of fifty attacks of African fever. The Egyptians were an Asiatic race, and it may be assumed, both from the probabilities of the case and from the frequency of the squatting posture in their paintings and bas-reliefs, that the introduction of the chair came in the progress of refinement. Egyptian chair and stool. In Fig. 1237, a represents a chair now in the museum of Leyden. The back and legs are of wood, the seat has a wooden frame and interlacing leathern thongs. The seat is only 13 inches high. In some, the interlaced material is cord. Beneath the feet are blocks or pads, probably to prevent noise in moving the chair on a marble floor. b is a stool made on the principle of our campstools. It is in the collection of Mr. Salt, and probably had a leather or leopard-skin cover. The same collection has an ebony stool, inlaid with ivory. The cushion is o

The discovery of the Leyden jar is attributed to Cunoeus of Leyden, in 1746, who, while handling a vessel containing water in communication with an electrical machine, was surprised at receiving a severe shock; a similar event haon-balance.

Her-ba′ri-um. A collection of dried plants. Aristotle is considered the founder of the philosophy of botany, 347 B. C. The Historia Plantarum of Theophrastus was written about 320 B. C. Authors on botany were numerous at the close of the fifteenth century. The Botanic Gardens of Padua, Leyden, and Leipsic were established respectively in 1545, 1577, 1580; the Jardin des Plantes, in Paris, in 1624; Oxford, 1632. The system of Linnaeus was made known in 1750; and Jussieu's system, founded on Tournefort's, and called the natural system, in 1758. The latter is now accepted by such authorities as Lindley and London. The Linnaean was founded upon sexual differences, the classes being determined by the number of stamens, the orders by the number of pistils. The natural system of Jus
inciple in 1630. His description is as follows: If you insert two similar lenses (that is, both convex) in a tube, and place your eye at a convenient distance, you will see all terrestrial objects, inverted indeed, but magnified and very distinct, with a considerable extent of view. He afterward added two more glasses, which reversed the image and brought it to the natural position. Rheita was the first to employ the combination of three lenses, the terrestrial telescope. Suellius of Leyden, Descartes (1596 – 1650), and Leibnitz (1646 – 1716) stated the doctrine of refraction more or less fully; and Grimaldi, an Italian painter, demonstrated the ellipticity of the sun's image after refraction through a prism; Newton (1642 – 1727) determined that it was owing to the difference in the refrangibility of the respective portions of the rays. Newton supposed that refraction and dispersion were indissolubly united, but Dollond demonstrated that by using two different kinds of glass<

of dolls and toys. The cut illustrates two of the latter. One of them is the figure of a man washing or kneading dough, and has joints at the hips and arms, so that the block in the hand is caused to reciprocate on the inclined plane as the figure is moved by the string. The other figure represents a crocodile having its upper jaw hinged, as in nature. The game of thimblerig occurs in a painting, and the illustration is from the work of Professor Rosellini. Egyptian toys (Museum of Leyden). Toys have been disinterred by General di Cesnola from the tombs of Golgoi and Idalium in Cyprus, — painted dolls of clay modeled with the fingers; mounted cavaliers armed with shields, or horses attached four abreast to cars. One, a horse a foot in length, rolling on movable wheels, was found in a diminutive grave, older probably than Hector and Andromache. The toys of the Roman children were of various kinds; some found at Pesaro were little leaden gods and goddesses, with altars
