It was assigned to Berry's (3d) Brigade, Kearny's (3d) Division, Third Corps; and at Williamsburg, according to General Kearny, it maintained the key-point of the position; loss, 17 killed, 38 wounded, and 5 missing. Colonel Poe, in his official report of that battle, mentions the fact that one of his men was found dead beside a dea
Doc. 13.-fight at Campbell's Station, Tenn. Knoxville, Tenn., November 7, 1863. The first engagement of any consequence between our forces and those of Longstreet, in the retreat to Knoxville, took place yesterday, at Campbell's Station — a little collection of houses on the Kingston road, where it forms a junction with the road to Loudon. During the night of Sunday, the rebels made three different charges on our position at Lenoir, with the intention of capturing the batteries on the right of our position; but every onset was met and repulsed. In the morning, our troops again took up the march in retreat, and the rebels pushed our rear-guard with so much energy that we were compelled to burn a train of wagons, to obtain the mules to aid in getting away the artillery. Its destruction was necessary, as otherwise we would have been compelled to abandon it to the enemy. One piece of artillery, which had become mired and could not be hauled out by the horses, fell into th
cilities. Monday, November 16, P. M..--Rumors reached us last evening that a battle was being fought at Campbell's Station, twelve miles from Knoxville, on the Lenoir road. Longstreet's army, variously estimated to number from ten thousand to twenty thousand strong, after crossing the river, pressed en masse on the slowly reti of order. Tuesday, November 17.--The storm is upon us. Longstreet's legions are investing Knoxville. Our boys are skirmishing already with their lines on the Lenoir road. General Sanders, with the One Hundred and Twelfth Illinois, Forty-fifth Ohio, Eighth Michigan, and Twelfth Kentucky, are in front. The sharp crack of muskfront. The fire was unceasing for three hours. The ambulances, about ten o'clock, commenced their unhappy work, and were observed busily plying to and fro on the Lenoir road. Wounded men were seen walking and riding in, their numbers increasing hourly. At eleven o'clock, General Ferrero, in command of the earthworks at Rebel Po

2,000 infantry and artillery and 8500 cavalry. The cavalry, during the coming siege, for the most part held the south side of the river, where they erected strong works on the commanding hills and were little molested, as our own cavalry was generally kept on the north bank on our left flank. Burnside was ordered not to oppose Longstreet's advance, but to retreat before him and draw him on, as far as possible from Chattanooga. On Sunday, Nov. 15, Longstreet crossed and advanced as far as Lenoirs; Burnside falling back, skirmishing. On the 16th, an effort was made to bring him to battle at Campbell's Station, but only a skirmish resulted, in which the Federal loss was 31 killed, 211 wounded, and 76 missing, and the Confederates 22 killed, 152 wounded. Burnside withdrew into Knoxville that night and Longstreet followed and drew up before it on Nov. 17. On the 18th, the outposts were driven in and close reconnoissances made, in which the Federal Gen. Sanders was killed. He had been
serving also to open the escape passage to the exhaust gases. f is the induction slide, admitting the explosive mixture to the cylinder. g is the compressor by which the inflammable gas is introduced into the chamber where the mixture is formed. i is the reservoir of inflammable gas. j j are the fixed jets, and k k the movable. In Hugon's English patent 653 of 1863, the explosive force of the gas acts upon a column of water which transfers the force to the piston. See also Lenoir's patent, March 19, 1861; Dick's, 1867; Million, 1867. The ammoniacal engine has been termed a gasengine, but this latter name is more fairly applicable to those engines in which the force is obtained by the inflammation of the charge, rather than to those in which the motor is an elastic vapor under pressure. Frot's ammonia-engine resembles the steam-engine so closely that comparative experiments with the vapor of water and of ammonia have been made with it. See ammoniacal engine.
ramming down the blocks, was invented about 1830 by Colonel Macirone, London. A steam paving-machine in use in Paris consists of a small steam-engine on wheels, drawn by one horse, to the rear of which is attached the pavior or vertical rammer, which is forced upon the ground with great force by a blow from the piston. It slides on a bar some six feet long, and can thus be directed by the driver to any stone which requires forcing home. Lignier's machine (French) consists of a small Lenoir steam-engine, to the fly-wheel of which is attached a rammer of steel, smaller and heavier than the wooden one in general use. The operator simply guides the strokes of the machine. Paving-roller. Pav′ing-roll′er. A heated roller for compacting asphalt pavement. In the example, a cresset or firebasket is suspended within the roller in such a way as to preserve its proper position during the rotation of the roller. Pav′ing-tile. A flat brick for paving floors. Such are often<
