Con- nooticut Is his native State. He was born In 1827 and was admitted to tlie bar. He entered tho array as Colonel of tho Second Connecticut Volunteers May 7, '1861. Ho was made a Brig-General In 1882; contribute d to the reduction of Fort Wagner In 1803, commanded a division in 1804, and as commander of the land forces, with the co-operation of Admiral Porter, took Fort Fisher, North Ctvvo- wns nominated for and OENEHAL TERRY. Una, in 1805. He confirmed a s Brigadier-General January 16, 1885, for distinguished service during tho war and gallantry and generalship in the capture of Fort Fisher. He was commissioned a Major-General of Volunteers April SO, 1865, to rank from January 15, 1865, for gallant service In Fort Fisher's capture. Tho thanks of Congress were tendered to General Terry and the officers and men under him for "the unsurpassed gallantry and skill exhibited by them in tho attack on Fort Fisher and the brilliant and decisive victory by which that important work was captured from the rebel forces and placed in tho possession of tho United States, and for their long and faithful service and unwavering devotion to the cause of the country in the midst of the great est difficulties and dangers."

At his request he was placed on the retired list and General Crook placed at the head of the Department of the Missouri. General Terry then came to Connecticut and took up his residence in New Haven. He never married, but lived with his three unmarried sisters.] FOR THE FASHIONABLE. " IN the embroidery line there is no design so popular aa the fleur-de-lis.

Beautiful heart-shaped pins and rings are shown composed of a turquoise surrounded by pearls or diamonds. A PBETTY addition to a dressing-table Is a cut-glass candelabra. These come in pairs of two branches each, or one of five branches is equally desirable. The newest ones have gold and silver sockets for holding tho candles. CHHYSANTIIEMTJM lamps are all the rage. The prettiest are of cut glass, supported by quite a slender stem, and with the shade of white or yellow silk, fringed so as to resemble the flower from which they take their name. OX-CHAIN bracelets are tho rlewcst things that society girls have chosen by which to announce that they are fettered to a bold laddie.
