He came down in sight of the picket boats stationed off the mouth of the Roanoke River, with head up stream, and was accompanied by a row-boat that pulled several times diagonally across the river, as if dragging for torpedoes.

The rapid movement of an army and its supplies wins victories and makes possible the execution of effective strategy. Road-making is no less essential to the success of a soldier than the handling of a musket.

ged in the spring campaign of 1864 were organized as armies or distributed in military departments as follows: The Army of the Potomac, commanded by Major-General Meade, whose headquarters were on the north side of the Rapidan. This army was confronted by the Rebel Army of Northern Virginia, stationed on the south side of the Rapidan, under General Robert E. Lee. The 9th corps, under Major-General Burnside, was, at the opening of the campaign, a distinct organization, but on the 24th of May, 1864, it was incorporated into the Army of the Potomac. The Army of the James was commanded by Major-General Butler, whose headquarters were at Fortress Monroe. The headquarters of the Army of the Shenandoah, commanded by Major-General Sigel, were at Winchester. [It is not necessary to mention the other armies for my purpose.] On pages 5th and 6th of his report Mr. Stanton says.

William Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: My Dear Sir,--During the night of the 23d, and morning of the 24th of May, 1864, Hancock's Second corps, Army of the Potomac, was crossing the trestle bridge over the North Anna at Chesterfield, and during that time, more especially after dawn, whenever any considerable number of troops appeared on the bridge, they were the object of immediate attention from a Confederate battery a few hundred yards up the river, in position on the right bank. At times the fire of three Union batteries was concentrated upon it, at a distance, I should judge, of not more than six h

substitution of augers of different sizes. The lower extremity of the revolving portion holds the center-bit m, which, owing to the collar n, cannot ascend or descend without the square cutter which cuts out the angles beyond the range of the circular borer. The square-cutting tool is a bar of steel with a round hole drilled out of the solid, and the edges are formed by filing and grinding them to the bevels, shown in the enlarged figure. Merritt's Machine for boring Angular Holes, May 24, 1864. The holes are bored by rotary cutters; fixed, and reciprocating in a plane at right angles to the axis of the hole. The relatively fixed auger makes a round hole, as usual; certain cutters which partake of the circular motion have also a reciprocation towards and from their axis of rotation, being projected outward and again retracted four times in a rotation, to cut out the angles left by the round auger, thus making a square hole.
