avans, about 1812. The book is in the Congressional Library. The art was very popular in India in times of whose dates we can only guess. The Chinese, also, were early in the field, and excelled in this as they did and do in whatever requires patient toil and persistent, careful manipulation. The Egyptian antiquities referred to embrace many different colored woods and metals. Among the Italian artists, black and white woods were first used, and were called morescoes.

ver. A small force of cavalry, under Colonel W. J. Palmer, Fifteenth Pennsylvania volunteers, continued to follow Hood for some distance, capturing considerable transportation and the enemy's pontoon bridge. The details of these operations will be found clearly set forth in General Thomas' report. A cavalry expedition, under Brevet Major-General Grierson, started from Memphis on the twenty-first December. On the twenty-fifth he surprised and captured Forrest's dismounted camp at Verona, Mississippi, on the Mobile and Ohio railroad, destroyed the railroad, sixteen oars loaded with wagons and pontoons for Hood's army, four thousand new English carbines, and large amounts of public stores. On the morning of the twenty-eighth he attacked and captured a force of the enemy at Egypt, and destroyed a train of fourteen cars; thence, turning to the south-west, he struck the Mississippi Central railroad at Winona, and destroyed the factories and large amounts of stores at Bankston, and th

Here they captured six officers and twenty men, destroyed two trains of sixteen cars each, loatores and ammunition, with quartermaster's stores and commissary stores for Hood's army. From Verona the command moved south along the line of the road, destroying it thoroughly to a point between wheat, and a thousand stand of new arms at Egypt, in addition to the four thousand destroyed at Verona. I believe this expedition, in its damaging results to the enemy, is second, in importance, t north of Tupelo, hearing of the existence of a rebel camp and large quantity of army stores at Verona, I ordered Colonel Karge to leave his pack train and proceed rapidly toward that point, and if happearance was a complete surprise to citizens on the line of march. When within two miles of Verona Colonel Karge struck the enemy's pickets. Notwithstanding the darkness of the night, his advanc
