A GENEALOGY OF THE DESCENDANTS OF RICIIARD BAILEY. 



RICHARD 1 B A I L E Y, who died sometime 
i between 1647 and 1650, owned an estate in 
Rowley, Massachusetts, and was one of the company 
that set up the first cloth mill in America, which was 
in Rowley, where the mills stand that are owned by 
a Dummer at the present time. There is a tradition 
in the family to the present day that lie came from 
Yorkshire, England, sometime about 1630 or 1635; 
^Sand Joshua Coffin says, Richard Bailey came with 
Richard Dummer, in the ship Bevis, 150 tons, Robert 
Batten, in April, 1633, when he was fifteen years old. 
It is said that he was a very pious person, and in a 
storm when coming to America, the company «uuiu 
call upon him to pray for their safety. 

His wife's name was Ednah, by whom be had one 
child, whom they called Joseph ; born about 1635 or 
a little later: for, when he made bis will, 1C47-S bis 
son Joseph was under 14 years of age. Her maiden 
name perhaps was Holstead, for their son Joseph ac- 
knowledged the receipt of £9 4s in 1667, which was 
bis portion of £46 given to the " child or children" 
of Ednah bis mother, by 'Win. Holstead. whom he 
calls his uncle. After the death of Mr. Bailey, Ednah, 
his widow, married before the 15th of the Oth month 
in 1649, Ezekiel Northend of Rowley, who probably 
took possession of the homestead, and it has been in 
the Nortbend family from that time. 

THE ONLY CHILD OF R1CHAP.D AND EDNAH BAILEY. 

T O S E P H,- son of Richard and Ednah Bailey of 
f f Rowley, settled in the north part of Rowley on the 
Merrimack not far from the western border of New- 
bury, Mass. At the time when several of the Rowley 
families first began to settle there ; which part was at 
first called the Merrimack lands, but soon incorporated 
by the name of Bradford ; and in 1850 the east part of 
the town in which his farm was situated was incor- 
porated by the name of Groveland, and most of his 
original lot is owned by 1). \Y. Hopkinson, and M. 
M. Palmer. Mr. Hopkinson, is one of bis descend- 
ants and purchased the house and land on the south- 
erly si,<e of Main Street, and lives in the house which 
Stands on the site where the original one was built ; 
and Mr. Palmer has built a bouse on the northerly 
*tdc of the street, and nearly opposite the old residence. 
He was one of the leading men of the town of 
Bradford, accordingly was chosen to fill Civil, Military, 
Ecclesiastic and oiher offices of trust: — was one of the 
selectmen of the town twenty-three years between 



1675 and 1710, and one of the Deacons from the 
formation of the church until his death, October 11, 
I 1712. His wife was Abigail, 'who died November ] 7, 
1735, but who her father was, we have not been able 
to learn. Their children were first, Abigail, who mar- 
ried Samuel Tenny, and died November 28, 1680, 
leaving a daughter Abigail born 22d ci the same 
month, who married previous to 1716, a Haseltino; 
i second, Elder Richard, born 16 75, who lived in 
| Bradford; third, Anne, born 1678, who married Jonas 
Platts; fourth, Elizabeth, born 1G81, who married 
j Robert Hastings; filth, Joseph, jr., bnrn 1683, who 
Jocliicd iti Y~. Ncwhurv • w-rt!, "Kdmh. brsr" 1686. 
who married John Hastings; seventh, Dea John, born 
1691, who settled in Methuen ; and eighth, Sarah, 
born July 6th, 1694, who married March 29, 1710, 
James Davis, but we know nothing else of them, ex- 
| cepting that the following of their children are on the 
records of Haverhill, Mass. viz: Elisba, born Oct. 13, 
; 171S, died 1721; Ruth, born Aug. 14. i720: Richard, 
j bora Sept. 1, 1721, d. y., and Sarah, born March 18, 
1722.

COPY OP A LETTER 

from 

Sarah M. Buss to Edgar Morton Snow 



Bakersfield (Cal.) Dec-2nd 1919 

My dear friends, 
I am writing a few lines to inclose in Mary's letter — 
•.-^Idsnts in the family history. My great-grandfather Matthew 
rjell entered the Revolutionary war service from Seiners, Conn. 
£4 was plowing in the field- when he heard of the trouble at 

txing-ton* He unyoked his oxen and left the plow in the furrough. 
le enlisted a company of men and entered the service as Lieute- 
..-.t. He took his oldest son, Matthew, who was my grandfather, 
rjth him as drummer-boy. Grandfather was 17 y'rs old, at that 
Use. He was at the battle of Bunker Hill. After being out several 
aonthe and foreseeing no end to the conflict, he 3ent my grand- 
father home to help his mother carry on the farm, and Daniel, a 
younger brother wen£ to hia father* I don't know how long Daniel 
la out, but he drew a pension afterward. Great-grandfather ser- 
red three years, retiring with broken health* He left Conn* and 
*.«nt to Newport, 33". H. -day native place) and later to Orwell, Vt. 
live with his son Silas and died there in 1804. 
His wife, my great -grand/no the r lived to be 102 y'rs old. Go far 
-a I know, not one of her lineal descendants has lived to my age 
— ' 97 years. 

My grandfather was a teacher of vocal music for quite a number 
'it years, and was Quite eminent in the profession, and never lost 
■••■ interest in it, even when his voice was broken with age. He 
Lived to be 82 y'rs old* I have written this thinking it might 
interest you. 

^ f e shall be glad to hear from you whenever you can write, wit/: 
fove and kindest wishes, 



(Signed) Sarah M. Buss.

THE SIXTH CHILD OL ELDER RICHARD BAILEY. 

IlICHARD* born in Bradford, May 9, 1717; mar- 
ried, Aug. 18, 1741, Rachel, daughter of Lewis Page, 
of Haverhill, Mass. (sister to a Benj. Page), said to have 
been i elated to Louis XVI.; another tradition says 
that she was a grand dau. of an Abraham Lewis, a 
Frenchman, whose wife was a German of Amsterdam, 
Holland, and that " they owned a whole street " in that 
city. He- settled in the West Parish of Haverhill, on 
land adjoining his bro. Amos's farm, on " Old Spicket 
Path," (-o called when his lather gave the three broth- 
ers, Richard, Eben. and Amos, their farms in West 
Haverhill.) where he lived until 1807; when they re- 
moved to IIopkinton,N. II., where, he diedabout 1815; 
and his wife died about 1S00, aged 82. A few years 
after they left, the house was taken down, and in 1329 
Dea. Ezra B. Welch, who m. his bro. Amos's g. ch. for 
his first wife, built his house on the old cellar. Mr. 
Bailey possessed traits of character which led him to 
turn his attention to objects somewhat of a dill'erent 
nature. While they were content to stay upon their 
farms and enlarge their dwellings (when they first set- 
tled on their farms, each built a square two-story house 
of the same size, with one room in each story, and 
with a chimney on the west end, with very large fire- 
places, and in these houses they brought up their large 
liuuilies. After a while, Eben. and Amos built on to 
the west end as much more room and back rooms on 
the north side, extending the roof down over them 
with the same inclined plane: hence the shape of old 
farm-houses in the valley, now- standing.) he was in- 
clined to venture — was particularly fond of sports 
of the field. \\ hen over four score years old, he was 
almost daily seen, with musket on his shoulder, visiting 
Creek Pond, over beyond his bro. Ebenezer's resi-

DESCENDANTS OF DEA. JOHN BAILEY. 

TO II \ s the third ?on and seventh child of Dea. Jo 
.) seph Bailey, of Btadford, born Nov. 26, 1691, m. 
Susanna, dan. of Elder Samuel Tenney, born Feb. 5, 
169-1-5, lived in Bradford until after 1712, when he 
removed to the west part of Haverhill (afterwards 
Methuen), where he died about 1750. He was a man 
of influence in his town, as appears by the records of 
Salem, and was chosen one of the deacons of the sec- 
ond, or North church, of Methuen (now Salem, N. 
II.), .Mar. 3, 1739-10, the same year that this church 
w.is gathered, and his wife and daughter Hannah were 
received to that church about the same time. It ap- 
pears that they had nine children, and probably most 
of them were married and had descendants, but we 
have not been able to trace out. but a few of the 
branches so fully as is desirable. They were Samuel, 4 
born at Bradford, Aug. 28, 1713 ; Sarah 4 (the first one 
of them recorded on the Haverhill records), b. Sept. 
21, 1715; Hannah, 4 b. Sept. 21, 1718; John, 4 b. Feb. 
18, 1720-1 ; Joshua, 4 b. Sept. 5, 1723, who probably 
in. Sarah Davis, of Amesbury; lived in Salem, N. II., 
until after several of his children were b., then most, 
or perhaps all of his family, removed to Dunbarton. 
where some of his descendants have since lived, and 
had Jo-peh, 5 b. May 27, 1715, Joshua, 5 b. Aug. 3, 1 747,

<J Jonathan Corliss, of Salem, for his 1st wife, who d. 
in 1787, aged 66, and 2d widow Mary Hastings (see 
p. 156). He settled on a farm very near the borders 

j of Methuen, now called the Patee place, where his 
children were born, and afterwards exchanged with 

: Patee, and removed to North Salem, N. II., where he 
died. Tradition says that " he was a very strong man, 
and when a certain barn was raised, he could shoulder 

; and carry ; either stick' that composed the frame, and 
he made a visit to the building the last time he ever 
rode out, to see what he had done in his younger 
day." Their children (on the records of Methuen), 
besides Samuel, 5 b. Oct. 12, 1756, who probably d. y.,

most of the families in that town are con-

great part of Groveland are direct descend- 
ants, though some are no nearer related than 
Ctli or 7th cousins.

The above tivo indices point to most ten thousand of the direct descendants of Richard Bailey, of Rowley, besides to about five 
Ihoumnd more names, most of which are parents of, or in some way related to the starred names whose descendants are a part of 
tins tribe of Richard ; but we suppose that about one thousand direct descendants are missing, and, considering the nature of the 
work, there may be errors to correct, therefore we mo>t earnestly wisi; all who are interested to lend a helping band, so that in 
* fatu.-c number of the work we may make the account of this tribe of Baileys complete and coriect.

RESEARCHES AKD RECORDER OF MERRIMACK YALLET. 



NOTES AND QUERIES. 



[Jas. 



This department of our work is of full as much interest to readers of the present generation (on account of 
the short stories toM) as anything that can be presented. ]f any one can answer the Queries, or give us some 
more, they will be lor a future number of the work, where a larger space will be used for them. 



7'iik AyciENT Bed of the Merrimack. — It has been 
conjectured that this river, at a remote period, emptied 
into the Atlantic Ocean where the city of Boston is 
now built ; and at another time, perhaps, at some other 
point between Boston and Newburyport, instead of 
turning in its course and running in its present direc- 
tion. Who will give us their views in regard to this 
question?

the latter claimed that not only the jurisdiction be- 
longed to them, but the property also, and armed bands 
of 4'), 50, and even more, at a time, went from Kings- 
ton and Londonderry to that part of rjfcwsrhill which 
fid I to the north of the line, and endeavored to drive

t>ersonal violence committed, on either side? Are 
there any records, or traditions, of actual fighting, or 
skirmishing, between the parties ? After the settle- 
ment of Londonderry (a part of which town was 
taken from Haverhill), th^re arose disputes between 
the two towns about their bounds. Can any one fur- 
nish any further information in regard, to those, 
troubles, than those given by Mr. Parker, in his His- 
tory of Londonderry ?

Boryrox. — There is a tradition in one branch of 
the Born ton family, that the name of their first ances- 
tor in this country was Joshua; while another branch 
trace their genealogy back to one John Boynton, who 
emigrated to this country from Scotland in 1630, and 
was a son of one of the Scottish peers. We are de- 
tirous of learning whether they were brothers, or 
related by blood ; also, how many of the name of 
Boynton are ascertained to have emigrated to this 
country between the years 1635 and 1640, and where 



ExEKSoy. — This name was common in Haverhill

This John Emerson 3d. some think was the son of a

the other children were, Sam'l, who settled in Maine ; 
Elizabeth, who m. George Corliss; and Loi-<, who m. 
James Webster ; that they were cousins to Ithamore 
Emerson. It is said that a Thomas Emerson once 
lived in a house that stood on land now owned by M. 
G. J. Emery, Esq., and not far from where this John 3 
lived, so that probably he was a descendant of 
Robert, family second. 

Who can show us what relation the first Michael and 
Robert were to each other, whether all the above fam- 
ilies are connected, ami whether these families are re- 
lated to other Emersous in this part of New England ''.

GEORGETOWN, Mass. 

Probably no town in the valley has had more en- 
terprising men than this, from its incorporation in 
183:3 ; and in fact for thirty years previous to that 
time, this part of Rowley was the flourishing portion 
of the town, then called New Rowley, and from which 
have gone out many noted business men, some to the 
Southern States, and some to the neighboring business 
places ; but others have stuck to the place of their 
fathers, and by their influence have had this town 
built up, and common highways made to centre in to 
the corner, as the business part is known by; and 
since the railroad excitement in the country, they have 
been the cause of having the iron track to branch out 
from the place in three directions, so that the place is 
connected with all other towns in the vicinity by this 
kind of inter-communication, and with the large thor- 
oughfares. 

The place is noted most for the manufacture of thick 
boots and shoes, in which Tenney, Little, Winter, 
Lovering, are the leading men. And in medicines, 
of which Bateman, Carter, Checney, are the leading, 
who manufacture Atwood's Bitters, other patent and 
botanic medicines in any quantity. It is a great place 
tor musical talent. And where can another place be 
found where so large a proportion can get up, in a 
western-like manner, and make an off-band and witty 
speech, and relate so many tales of the communication 
with the spirit world and icitches in the dnys of their 
grandmothers, now known by spiritual mediums ? Jn 
natural scenery and places of interest out of the vil- 
lage, they have Bald-pate Hill, in the southwest part, 
the highest elevation in Essex county, from which a 
fine view of the surrounding country may be seen, and 
Little's Grove, where picnics are held by social par- 
ties from towns and cities far and near, which lias been 
fitri d up by the owner, Samuel Little, in a manner 
which makes it exceedingly convenient for such gath- 
erings. Among the largest farmers to till the land 
are John Kimball, Gorham P. Tenney, Samuel Little, 
Sewall Spotlbrd, and Asa Pingree (of Topsfield), 
whose farm is in this town; and of other kinds of 
business, and individuals engaged in the different de- 
partments, we, classify as follows: Blacksmiths, Charles 
Holmes, Henry Pettengill, Francis Reed. — Bread 
Dealer, Oilman Perley. — Butchers, Jona. B. Hardy, 
and some others who come in from other towns.— 
Carpenters, John, Joseph, Edwin, and Chas. A. Kim-

The Schools in this Town - . — According to the 
report of the Committee for the year ending March, 
1838, the past year has been one of more than av- 
erage success in our schools, and they say that "Music 
is the lubricating material to diminish the friction in 
all the machinery of lite," "which has been practised 
to some extent in all our schools, with interest and 
profit ; " therefore they recommend that the town vote 
a small sum, say fifty dollars, as an experiment, for 
that object. Number of persons in the town between 
tne and fifteen years of age, 39 7. The following are

they were upset; Mr. Perley injured badly, Mr. Boyn-

The Fantastical Celebration. — This town 
having become famous for its Fourth of July celebra- 
tions of tliis sort, accordingly, on the announcement 
that on the anniversary of our national birthday the 
present year, a most grotesquely magnificent display 



Horses with horns, find cloven feet, 
Knock-knee il, stiiF-joiuted, slow and fleet; 
Prodigious ears, enormous tails, — 
Some monstrous large, some thin as rail?. 

After marching through the principal streets, they 
halted in front of Hon. Moses Tenney Jr.'.s residence, 
where they partook of a collation which he had pio- 
vided for the occasion. Map Tenney made a happy 
and humorous speech of welcome to his guests, which 
was appropriately responded to by Maj. Gen. Boyn- 
ton, Chief Marshal, etc., and the procession moved to 
the square in front of the Pentucket House, where a 
stage was erected on which to make the intellectual 
developments for the occasion. The officers of the 
day, and oihers to take part, together with several in- 
vited guests, were then hoisted upon the platform by 
means of a derrick which had been rigged for. the pur- 
pose. Joseph Ilervoy, Esq., was introduced by the 
Chief Marshal as President of the day, who made a 
lew well-timed remarks, then introduced the reader 
of the Declaration of Independence, Col. Quattlebum 
(Solomon Ne!;-on), when he read the declaration : 
" Whereas, the lime having arrived when the colonies 
have got to be some pumpkins, it became necessary, 
in order to establish justice, and secure the blessings 
of free trade and sailors' rights," etc. Next was intro- 
duced Gen. Culpepper (Isaac Wilson), who delivered 
the Oration. The President then introduced John 
G. Whiffletrce, the Merrimack River Barb (Stephen 
Osgood), who, both in his inimitable style of delivery, 
and 'in the keenness and pith of the admirable and 



would be made, e.\avy way exceeding all previous oc- 1 humorous local and personal hits, drew forth unbounded 
casions, as early as 7 o'clock in the morning, not less j shouts of applause from the vast audience, aid in the 



than 2000 person.? were present from iiie neighboring 
towns, besides almost the entire population of the vil- 
lage. 

It would be in vain to undertake a description of 
the strange and unaccountable exhibition. 

At the. head of the procession was Maj. Kendall and 
the escort of citizens, who had formed themselves into 
a " Veteran Association," with a uniform of citizens' 
dress, black, with belt, sword and chapeau, accompa- 
nied by the Georgetown Band, followed by Maj. Gen. 
Geo. W. Boynton, Chief Marshal, and Aids, all 
mounted and carrying a most destructive ornament 
in the shape of broadswords, cleavers, harpoons, and I 
revolvers. 

Directly in the rear was a burlesque model of the 
frigate Constitution, on board an efficient crew, to- 
gether with the Big Byfield Brass Band, etc., which 
received the first prize, S10. Next in order, a large 
carriage representing the ,L Return from Kansas," oc- 
cupied with specimens of home-sick emigrants, drawn 
by a " Durham short-horn" acting in harmonious con- 
cert with a second-rate mule. Then a car of " South- 
ern Emigration to Kansas," with border-ruffians armed 
with bowie-knives, whiskey, hemp, etc. Next, a car 
from the "underground railroad," with usual passen- 
gers — -motto, " Dis is de underground railroad." 
Further alon'i in the procession, a comical engine 
tailed the " Moral Suasion Locomotive" — a grand 
combination of human horse and steam power. An- 
nother large carriage represented " Walker's Return." 
Together with music adapted to the occasion was a' 
huge musical instrument called a " Bumjar," which 
was mounted on a platform w Igon, and discoursed; 
appropriate music on the route of the procession. But 
our .-pace will hardly allow us to particularize further/ 
There were about thirty vehicles, of all possible shapes, i 
sizes, designs and descriptions, drawn by a variety of i 
qua irupeds, among which were 



composition of which is artistic merit, from which we 
make a few extracts : 

One evening, as I sat and mused, 

My senses got somewhat confused — 

And gently dropping olf to sleep, ■ 

A vision strange did o'er me creep. 

***** 

What all this meant I could not think, 

Till one near by gave me the wink; 

And looking upon Haverhill street, 

The strangest sight my eyes did meet. 

***** 

There, in a basket filled with straw, 

Was the queerest sight I ever saw: 

The Chairman of the selectmen 

Did represent a stttiug lun. 

***** 

Then followed, in a crockery crate, 

Oar j>ussey Treasurer of State. 

* * * * * 

P.. Tenney riding a hoite with wings, 

And playing upon a thousand strings — 

Sam. Weston seated on a harrow — 

lien. Perley l'oorc with his wheelbarrow. 

***** 

Next Doctors Moody, Cog, and Root, 

With patients following on foot. 

***** 

Professor Emery then passed by, 

With giant form and flashing eye, 

And carried in his trowsers pockets 

Near fifteen dollars worth of rockets, 

Vt ith squibs and wheel- of various kinds, 

To please the young and tender minds. 

Jinkiiis, a scamp on mischief bent, 

Touched Emery off, ai.d away he went. 

***** 

Not half the train had by me passed, 

When Kendall blew a horrid blast, • 

And Hull began to ring the bell, 

Which woke me up, and broke the spell. 

If e'er again to sleep 1 co, 

I'll dream the re-t, and let you know.

The anointed priest, in ancient days, 

With consecrated feet.

GROYELAND, Mass. 

Topor.TJAriiiCALLY considered, this town may ho 
looked upon as a miniature of Eastern Vermont, with 
its high hills next to the river covered with vi rduri*, 
and the side next to Georgetown covered with \\n<«:s 
mostly of the evergreen conifera family, Piutis Siro- 
bus and P. r'u/iila being most abundant, and a small 
quantity of P. resinosa may be yet found on the east- 
erly side of King Street, between Enoch and John 
Harriman's residences; and many other parts of the 
town are covered with wood, including the pine and 
birch Betula lenta and Pi. nigra, which grow on the 
river bank, and B. popidifoHa, which grows with Pit >ts 
rigida on the light, sandy soil ; elm, I tnui.t Ann n. ntm, 
in company with the maple, Acer rubrum. grows in 
low lands, and the oak is in all parts of the town : and 
a few specimens of many other varieties are inter- 
spersed, miking the town truly (rVotrlan I. And from 
Hare, Cannon, Hutchins, Hardy, Picnic, Orchard, 
Indian, and other hills, you behold most delightful 
views of the Merrimack winding its way from Haver- 
hill towards Newburyport, the railroad from Haverhill 
to Georgetown, the ocean in the distance, city and 
towns a little nearer, and rich farms in the valleys at 
your feet. 

And in regard to the sentiments and habits of this 
very social people, you may by a short stay in town 
discover that, take them as a whole, they are Yankce- 
young-america-independent-specutators, though in all 
their tenets in politics, religion, and business, they claim 
to be democratic, wise, and good, from the cuiuerv i-

five, cautious, and pious, to those of the other extreme, 
■who claim to be '' ever learning." This part of ancient 
Bradford seems to have had the same turn for about a 
century and a half; and the more conservative part, 
which is now Bradford, concluded to let tlicir aspiring 
half (lush and set up for themselves, in 1850. 

The principal business is manufacturing boots and 
shoes for men's wear, which are sold to the retailers 
in all the towns in Essex North, and in Rockingham 
County as far oil' as Portsmouth ; and Geo. Savary 
used to have an extensive trade all the way " down 
ca-t " to Nova Scotia; and in South Groveland, where 
a second post ollice was established in 185— .there is a 
factory building on the site of the old Curictbn grain-! 
mill, built by Wm. Perry for a machine-shop, with a 
brass foundry, in 183-, and afterward occupied by ] 
Swetfand Perry, of Exeter, for manufacturing shoe- 
thread and twine; but they sold out in March, 1853,| 
to Straw, Tewksbury, and Webster, who enlarged it 
in 1854, which is now 142 feet long, and on an aver- 
age about 50 feet wide, besides the counting-room and 
gas-house, which are separate buildings; and they 
manufactured seamless meal-bags until 185 6; A little 
lower down Johnson's brook, on which this stands, is a 
siw and grain mill belonging to the heirs of Aaron 
Parker, the latter built where the old one stood that I 
was burnt down, 1853-4. In that part taken from 
Boxford, in 1856, and annexed to the south-west parti 
of the town, Solomon Spofford (like the SpolTbrd race 
who often have a mill in a high valley where a pond i 
of water can be caught in a. shower) has a mill where; 
he saws, grinds apples, churns his butter, as well as 
runs machines used in his business. Nathaniel Par- 
ker's tannery, noith of Parker Street, and very near 
Bradford line, is on a small stream that carries his 
bark-mill; Dean Parker's bulling machine is oper- 
ated by horse-power, while the Spoll'ord shoe manufac- 1 
hirers have run a like machine, by the stream which 
runs under their factor)' ; but the girls who run the va- I 
rious kinds of stitehing-machines which have within a ; 
few years past been invented to close and bind shoes i 
and boots, have to do it by the strength of the right 
arm. I 

The business of the town is done on the main, wind-! 
ins! street extending from Kimball's corner, on the old I 
Salem way in S. Groveland by the river, to W. New-' 
bury, which is almost a continuous village ; the depot' 
on the railroad, built in 1S51, is used by the business 
of this town and W. Newbury, which makes a lively 
show of boxes and bales for a country town. And the 
old chain ferry at the wharf, three-fourths of a mile 
from the depot, which commenced running April 28, 
1 8 "2 , is still in existence, and shortens the distance to! 
Haverhill about three miles, if you do not prefer going; 
upon the cars drawn by steam. 

Of the business done here, the names of the persons' 
engaged may be found in this work from page nine 
to fifty-three. The principal ones are the following: 
of Boots cV Shoes, the. Balch, Curtis, Huntress, Park- 
ers, Pages, SpofTords, Savarys, Slickneys, and Walker:! 
BulcheTi Tenney; Carpenters, Hardy, Ilopkinsons, 
Merrill, Shaw; Coal-dealer, Thomas II. Balch; Far-\ 
inm, Balehes, Browns, Burbank, Ilardys, Harrimans, 
Ilopkinsons, Jaqucs Lunt, Morse, J. II. Ordway, j 
Palmers, Parkers, Heed, Rollins, A. & M. Stickney, J. 
1 enney. Wood ; also the town owns a large farm, and 
li-k. of Salem, has the Geo. Bacon place; Leather 
Manufacturer, N. Parker: Milliner, Mrs. Watkins; 
l'ainttr, Balch; Physician, Spofford; Stable-keepers, j 
Ci.irk, with Bundlett, and Pemberton : School-teachers,'' 
febout twenty-five, who make it their business to teach | 



the whole or part of the year; Traders, Atwood, 
Greenough, Hudson, Parkers, and Savary. 

Amos. J. Saunders (p. 51) is the present principal 
of Merrimack Academy, established here in 1821. 
Rev. Dr. Perry is the sen. pastor of the church founded" 
lure in 17-28, and Rev. Mr. Doggctt is acting pastor. 
The Independent Society, who obtained control of the 
Methodist Church, have not regular preaching. The 
Groveland Mutual Fr.Ins. Company is in a prosperous 
condition. The literary society of the young men is 
nourishing. Most of the town fall in with the North, 
or Republican party of politicians. 

Dis>rrssiON\ — On account of continued ill-health, 
Mr. Pickard (pp. 31, 50) is dismissed by a mutual 
council, Jan. 1857. 

Accident. — John B. Hardy came very near being 
killed by a tree falling upon him, Feb. 10, while felling 
a tree in the wood ; but his neighbor Tyler Hardy be- 
ing by chance in the wood near by, went to his rescue. 

New School-house.- — At a meeting of the Dis. 
in the business part of the town, No. 4, Mar. 14th, it 
was voted to build a school-house, not to cost over 
$'-'500. Accordingly one was built. during the sum-

of Andover, preached the sermon. The following 
original hymn, by Miss L. P. Atwood (p. 10), was 
sung: 

How shnll a guilty, fallen race 
Hear the sweet messages of grace? 
How learn of Jesus' dying love, 
And mansions bright prepared above? 

Not from an angel's lips shall flow 
These heavenly truths to men below; 
But mortals shall the news proclaim, 
Till all have heard a Saviour's name. 

The joyful tidings we have heard; 
To us lias come the written word; 
To us have teachers too been given, 
To show our souls the way to heaven. 

Now, as before Thy throne we bend, 
Oh, let thy Spirit here decend, 
And consecrate thy servant, Lord, 
To preach the riches of thy word! 

Con-eerating praver, by Rev. B. F. Hosfoxd, of 
Haverhill: charge to the pastor by Dr. J. P. Cleve-

joying themselves according to their various inclina-

To receive her royal spouse, 

With the diamond's changeful hues

Then bethink ye what were earth 

In a universal dearth ; 

Not a leaf, or bud, or flower, 

Drinking in the summer shower; 

Not a blossom, not a fruit, 

Not a green and pulpy root, 

Not a lichen, moss, or reed, 

Not a solitary weed! 

***** 

Man himself, though often dry, 

Is called a vessel; know you why? 

'T is because, when rightly viewed 

He contains so much of fluid; 

Earth can claim a single quarter — 

All the rest is only water ' 

They had a good time that day, and something was 
done afterwards; but dull times, or something else, 
knocked the enterprise 

To adorn and grace our common, 
Lined with paths for men and women. 

A Cow Attacked Wm. II. Branch, Aug. 17, and

square m'li'S of territory, where tlic ruile and idle 
Pawntickets came to fi~h in the spring time, now are 
permanently living about forty thousand souls, — one- 
third being foreigners (including representatives from 
every quarter of the g!obe), and two-thirds of these 
foreigners are Irish, — which is about two hundred 
times as many inhabitants as there were in 1820, when 
pomu half-dozen firms, owned and occupied by intelli- 
gent and substantial families, embraced the chief part 
of the present city. When this part of Chelmsford 
wis incorporated, in 1S2G, by the nmie of Lowell (in 
honor of Francis C. Lowell, who, with Jackson, Wpr- 
th-n, M ioi!y,and others connected with them in man- 
ufacturing at Wakhatn, were the fust to conceive of 
using these falls to enlarge their business), there were 
but about 2500 inhabitants, and but twelve tax payers 
who paid taxes to the amount of $20 apiece; but 
there are now twelve great Manufacturing Corpora- 
tions, which have fifty mills, using a water power of 
about ten thousand horse power, their aggregate cap- 
ital being about fourteen millions of dollars; while 
the total value of real and personal estate in the city 
is about twenty-two millions, and the farms around 
Lowell have been enhanced, in the aggregate, full one 
million dollars. 

In these mills are four hundred thousand spindles in 
motion, consuming annually thirty-six million pounds 
of cotton, the product of the South, and about five 
million pounds of wool, the product mainly of the 
West; supplied from half a million sheep ; from three 
to six thousand tons of wrought and cast iron, and 
enormous quantities of other materials, to aid in chang- 
ing the raw cotton and wool into cloth. Light or ten 
thousand girls, ami about half as many men and boys, 
are employed, and the annua! product of this matc- 
3 111, machinery, and labor, is over eighty million yards 
of cotton cloth, one and a half million yards of broad- 
cloth .and cassiinere, nearly a million yards of carpets, 
besides printed and bleached goods, together with 
other cloths, rugs, batten, wadding, about two million 
dollars worth of machinery, etc. About two hundred 
miles of cotton goods are woven every day. Cloths 
are not the only goods manufactured here. Among 
the numberless articles, there are manufactured twenty 
million feet of lumber, which is principally derived 
from the region in the vicinity of the White Moun- 
tains, and is driven down the river during the spring 
freshets. Now, how many women would it require to 
mike the cloth by hand, as our great-grandmothers 
rlid, and how many horses to supply the place of the 
Boston and Lowell Railroad since it was made, in 
1335? 

Manufacturing is not the only interest which this 
'■ Manchester of America" is concerned in, and we 
would fain notice, if space would admit, some particu- 
lars in regard to the public buildings, and other works 
of art, and natural scenery, schools, moral, benevolent. 
rc'igious, and other institutions, well fitted to make it 
'•i he noble city of the arts;" but we must pass to 
notice the passing events.

MANCHESTER, N. H. 

Tins first-born city of New Hampshire, most beau- 
tifully laid out on a plain 00 feet above the river, with 
its broad Elm Street, nearly straight for over a mile 
in length from North to South, provided with ever- 
running fountains of good spring water fitted for man 
and beast, has its History written by lion. Chandler 
E. Potter, and published in 1850, which has inter- 
woven with it the early history of the country, the 
Indians of New Hampshire, the Scotch-Irish of which 
the first settlers of Manchester and vicinity were 
mostly composed, French, Indian, and Revolutionary 
wars, together with many other things which naturally 
are interesting to be connected with the history of a 
particular locality. 

In the evening after the Centennial Celebration, 
Oct. 22, 1851, the citizens met in the City Hill, and 
the meeting was called to order by Isaac W. Smith, 
Esq., President of the Common Council, and Hon. 
Richard II. Aver was chosen Chairman, who called on 
Hon. C. E. Potter, Dr. Wm. M. Parker, John B. 
Clarke, Esq, Rev. Cyrus W. Wallace, Rev. B. M. 
Tillotson, Mr. Charles A. Line, Mr. John L. Kelley, 
•Jos. C. Abbott, Esq.', Win. Stark, Esq., Mr. Albert 
Jackson, and Mr. Joseph Kidder, who related, in the 
course of their remark', many incidents of the past 
history of old " Deny field," the name of the place be- 

27 



fore 1810, and among the remarks of Rev. Mr. Wal- 
lace (who delivered the address in the day time) ho 
said: "Great is the contrast of society ; 'his grand- 
mother, in company with others, used lo'travcl on foot 
to Boston, a distance of forty miles, and back in three 
days, to sell their linen, which they manufactured with' 
their own hands;" but now are made an immense 
quantity of many kinds of cloths, seamless bags, paiK'r, 
locomotives, edged tools, etc., and shipped on the rail- 
roads to all parts of the world. And instead of the 
gathering of poor fishermen at the falls, where an im- 
mense number of eels, alewives, .-had. salmon, and 
other fish were, caught, before manufacturiii" cities 
! were built on the Merrimack, the richest merchants of 
! the Atlantic cities come and buy of the capitalists who 
use the water and falls to manufacture the goods: so 
that going to Derryfield is not, as the common saving 
I used to be, going out of the world ; ami instead of 
! living on "eel beef," herds of cattle are driven into 
j the city and devoured; and says the Citizen, of Lo- 
well: " There are, in Manchester, four banks, forty- 
one schools, fourteen churches, three savings banks, n 
I city library of some 6000 volumes, and a population 
I of 25.000. In 1S38, the population within its limits 
was not far from fifty persons." 

Organization of City Government took place 
Jan. C, when Hon. Jacob F. James delivered his fourth 
annual address as Mayor of this city, and he Iiaviii" 
been a resident of the place over 15 years, fully un- 
derstands all the affairs of his office. The Common 
Council elected E. M. Topliff President, and Amos 1!. 
Sbattuck Clerk. In convention, I". II. Lyibrii was 
elected City Clerk, and the School Committee organ- 
ized by choosing B. F. Wallace President, and Rev. 
Mr. Gage Clerk.

and married there to one of the eight daughters of the 
sixteen children of Wm. Glass, and has bad by her

a hole between some straw and the side of the barn,

alive then; but this does not beat that of John Proc- 
tor, over by the Massabcsic Pond, who, about lour 
years before, lost one of his turkeys, which he had not 
seen for six weeks. " One day his son Luther saw 
some eyes glistening through a crack in the barn, and 
thought an owl was there. He moved away hay, and 
the very turkey was found ; and so faint that she could 
not stand, and literally about as 'light as a feather.' 
But the next year she brought up a noble brood of 
turkeys."

tion some years, and a most worthy young man, fell 
through the elevator down six stories, a distance of 72

chain broke, which caused his fall. — And the day

METHUEN, Mass. 

The beautiful cascade of the vallev, where the 
water of the Spicket descends over a nearly perpen- 
dicular precipice of about thirty-six feet, and called 
the Falls, together with the many well improved and 
productive farms, render tins town distinguished — 
the east part of which belonged to Old Haverhill until 
1825, and until the line between the two States was 
fixed where it now is, it included a good poniun of 
Salem, N. II., and since that, until the sandy plains by 
the bridge were taken to. make the city of Lawrence, 
the town had nearly the shape of Haverhill, with about 
the same territory. 

The first settlements were made by Swans and Bod- 
wells; the former lived generally on the eastern side 
of the Spicket river (which centrally divides the town), 
and the latter lived on the western side ; but soon alter 
others came, among them a Barker, one of whose 
descenda»ts was a Stephen Barker, Esq., who was a 
Republican ; and, travelling abroad at the time of the 
last (1812) war with England, put up at a public house, 
the landlord of which was a Federalist. \Yi>hing to j-tart 
early the next, morning, paid for his lodging over night ; 
but soon after retiring, (bund his led swarming with 
bed-bugs. Considering himself imposed upon, a tier 
spending a restless night, and while dressing himself, 
composed the following, which he wrote ami addr< -m d 
to the landlord, by which to remember bun. 

Join Federal men, mid Federal blip, 

To pet the cash and suck the. blood, 

And fatten on the stranger; 

The twenty cents paid for thy bed, 
Is not a mill for each bug's head; 
Good-bye to thy bed-chamber. 

Among the voters at present representing the earliest 
settlers, are of Bod well, 7; Carle ton, 5; Cio-s, ; Cur- 
rier. 13: Davis, 6; Emerson, 10; Griffin, 10; Hani'.

resent probable the later settlers, are of liutlcrs, 7 ;

PASSING EVENTS OF 1S57. — METHUEN.

A Silver Tea-Set was presented, by surprise, to| 
Joseph R. Sanborn, who retires, after beimj nine years j 
overseer of the spinning-room of the mill, by the 
young ladies of that room, who made a trip to Law- 
rence, at which place he was residing, eve. of March 
2 1 st. By an extract from the presenting address at 
the time, we learn that " Life is but the journey of a 
day: we set out in the morning, our hearts buoyant' 
with hope; we form associations in childhood which! 
are dear to us; we linger with them for a moment,; 
when we are hurried along down the stream of 
time, constantly forming; new and severing the old ties j 
of friendship, — some of which may linger in our minds 
like troublesome dreams, while others are like flowers 
in our pathway, to cheer us on our wearisome journey 
of Life. The kind feelings which has ever existed be- 
tween us during the many months and weeks which 
are numbered with the past, will ever be recalled 
with pleasure. "While we have met from day to day to 
toil and spin, a kindred feeling has grown up between 
U3 which can never be broken. Although this little 
group may be scattered far and wide, and we roam in 
different climes, yet the spinning-room at Spiggot 
Falls will be the nucleus around which our minds 
cluster with filial regard." 

Sam. Tovvne, who drove the coach between Me- 
thuen and Lawrence about seven years, leaves early 
this summer, and goes to drive between South Danvers 
and Salem. 

A House ix the Clouds. — We learn from J. M. 
Grosvenor, M. I)., that a novel and very beautiful phe- 
nomenon was observed by himself and his wife, at 
about six o'clock P. M., Monday, July 20th, while in 
their garden east of their dwelling-house. They say : 
" A dark cloud was rising in the west, and steadily ad- 
vancing, indicating wind rather than raiu, when a 
smart breeze sprang up from the northwest, and the 
cloud seemed to change its appearance, assuming a 
light, fleecy appearance, reflecting white light, which 
excited attention; and, on looking up in the direction 
of the centre of the cloud, a perfect picture of the 
house of widow Stephen Currier (p. 131) was seen 
suspended in the air at an elevation of about thirty-five 
or forty degrees, the house being half a mile west of the 
point of observation, and could not be seen from that 
point, in consequence of intervening objects. 

Pearls. — It is said that John G. White and 
Branch G. Gutterson discovered some this summer, 
estimated to be worth S00O to S1000 ; consequently, 
among those of Essex Count), the Methuen people 
have taken the fever, and the Xewburyport Herald of 
July 14th says: " We should not wonder if our clam 
and mussel flats should turn out a crop before long.'' 

Dkstructive Fire. — About 111-4 o'clock, Tues- 
day eve. of Oct. 6th, a fire was discovered in the front 
room of the hotel situated on the easterly side of 
Turnpike Street, which was leased a few weeks pre- 
vious by Geo. Varnev, and owing to some difficulty in 
petting water, the flames soon spread to all parts of the 
building, which was, with contents, destroyed, together 
with two stables, a shed, and dwelling-house — all be- 
longing to Robert Taylor. One. of the stables was sit- 
uated end to the eastern side of the hotel, on a passage- 
way nearly at right angles with Turnpike Street, which 
runs by the northern side of the hotel and this stable 
to another passage-way which runs by the eastern end 
of the stable ; the other stable was situated on the other 
side of the first-mentioned passage-way, and with the 



street which is parallel with the passage-way on the 
northern side of it ; and the shed was on the westerly 
end of it, extending along on the street nearly to Turn- 
pike Street ; and the house was on this street, between 
the east end of the last-named stable and the passage- 
way that runs by the eastern end of the first-named 
stable. These five buildings were "talued at S9U00. On 
the street nearly at right angles with Turn]. ike Street, 
and south of the hotel, was a block, on the eastern fide 
of the hotel and near it, in the lower part of which 
was a meat-shop and a tailor's shop, wbi ( h iiad a con- 
nection with another building, the south-western i orner 
of which was joined on to the north-eastern < orner of 
this block, and in the upper part was the dwelling-place 
of Lahan, and lower part of Hart, the s!an-wa\ being 
outside of the northern side of the main block. The 
next one to this block was a dwelling-house villi tum- 
or more families, situated eastward of the last-named 
block, on the coiner of the street, anil the passage- 
way leading up by the first-mentioned stable to the 
said house of Taylor; then, on the other side of this 
passage-way, and east of the same, was the house of T. 
J. Richardson, which was consumed, villi his shop north 
of it, situated near the east end of the first-mentioned 
stable — Mr. Richardson's los; being about Si'ono. ']].,.; 
house nearly opposite the said tailor's slop, belonpii g 
to the heirs of Abiel How, came very near being di - 
stroyed, and the three-story block on the westerly side 
of Turnpike Street, and nearly opposite the hotel, was 
nearly consumed, and belonged to the Waldo estate — 
that estate loses $9000. The Town House, which 
stands close by the southeast side of the three-story 
A aiuo IjiGciv, narrowly escaped, j he gooes, utiiuij.- . : , 
horses, etc., were mostly saved ; but six large hog-;, in 
one of the stables, were burned to death. It was the 
largest fire ever experienced in the town, and for a 
while threatened half the entire village. Sonic twelve 
families, mostly Irish, were suddenly turned out of 
doors. A spontaneous meeting of the citizens was held 
eve. of Oct. 7th, and adjourned to the next evening, 
when they voted thanks to the firemen of Lawrence, 
etc. 

ENGRAVINGS. — The Baptist folks present them- 
selves with a lithographic likeness of their pastor, B. 1'. 
Branson, and there was talk by some persons of the 
place of having the village lithographed. 

Ordination. — Harvey Horsey, a graduate of Tufts 
College, was ordained and installed pastor of the 1 ni- 
versalist Society, on Wednesday eve., Nov. 18th, at 
which time the sermon was by Rev. A. A. Minor; 
Prayer, by Rev. Mr. Brayton ; Charge t<> the Pastor, by 
Rev". S. Cobb; Right Hand of Fellowship, by FU'v. A. 
A. Minor; and Charge to the People, by K-v. Mr. 
Spaulding. 



NASHUA, X. II. 

Dunstable, the very large township lying in the 
valley included on both sides of the river, and in both 
States, the whole or parts of a large number of the 
modern towns, and Nashua is in the centre of this ter- 
ritory"; and we learn from an excellent history of this 
old township, written by ('has. .1. Fox, Esq., and pub- 
lished in 1st'', that a settlement was commenced by 
settlers from Boston, and some other places, several 
years before 1(375 ; the first " housue-lotts," were laid

nut on the neck, South side, and at tlie mouth of Sal- 
mon Brook; and among the names that were in the 
town previous to its incorporation in 174G, by New 
Hampshire, were Acres, Adams, Blanehard, Beale, 
Bancroft, Colburn, Cummins, Cook, Collin, Darby- 
Khire, Danforth, Farwell, Fletclier, French, Goold, 
II irwood, Hassell, Howard, Johnson, Kendall, Lollen- 
dinc, Lovewell (the first one named John, who " died 
about 1754, said to have been aged 120," whose first 
child wis Capt. John, the hero of Pigwacket). Lund, 
Parris, Perry, Pollard, Prentice, Patterson, Powers, 
Proctor, Reed, Bobbins, Richardson, Seniles, Sollen- 
dine. Smith, Swan, Tavlor, Temple, Tyng, Usher, 
Waldo, Warner, Weld, Wheeler, Whiting. ' 

O'd Dunstable was a frontier settlement for about 
bO years, and a song of the great fight in i 7 25 begins : 

Of worthy Captain Lovewell I purpo-c now to sin?, 
How valiantly iie serveM his country and his kin?: 
lie ami his valiant soldiers did ran^c the woods full wide, 
And hardships they endured to quell the Indians' pride — 

which, it has been said, was composed that year; and 
another ballad, commencing : 

What time the noble Lovewell came, 

With fifty men from Dunstable, 
The cruel l'equot tribe to tame, 

With arms and bloodshed terrible, — 

Then did the crimson streams that flowed 
Seem like the waters of the brook, 

That brightly shine, that loudly dash 
Far down the cliffs of .A^ioehook — 

are in Fox's History, where he gives an account of 
tiiis bloody battie, in which several from this town 
were killed. 

The business part of the place dates back to about 
1800, when there was but a tavern and a store, and 
two or three dwelling-houses, and called Indian Head, 
but after 180 J, when the l'ost Olfiee was established, 
they named it Nashua, and from that time to 1820 the 
growth was gradual, but, after manufacturing was es- 
tablished, grew so that the whole town was called 
Nashua in 1837, and since, except it was divided on 
account of a difficulty in locating the City Hall when 
it was built, in 1S12-3, when the North part was in- 
corporated by the name of Nashville, which it held 
from 1312 to 1853, when they were united and incor- 
porated as a city ; and now, as we learn from the 
Directory of Tyler &Leavitt, published in 1S57, the 
receipts of the Post Office, in 1803 of less than twen- 
ty-five cents per quarter, has increased to over SI 200, 
and that "'Nashua now contains 125 streets, avenues 
and courts; about 11,000 inhabitants; 3 cotton man- 
ufacturing corporations, with 9 mills; -1 railroads; 3 
banks; 3 savings banks; 9 churches (and a Catholic 
church just commenced will make 10) and 11 congre- 
gations; 1 academy; 2 high schools; 11 school dis- 
tricts; 4 hotels; 10 machine and repair shops; 5 
foundries; 1 forge-shop; 1 edge-tool manufactory; 1 
enamcled-eard manufactory; 1 bobbin and shuttle do.; 
1 lock do.; 2 cabinet shops; 150 stores, including 
markets and saloons; 18 physicians, 12 lawyers; 4 
weekly newspapers; 3 steam-mills; and a great vari- 
ety of several other kinds of manufacturing too nu- 
merous to particularize. 

This city is supplied with waft r by the Pennichuck 
Water Works, incorporated in 1853, with a capital of 
5 : 7" 000. They have tlie Union Athenteum, instituted 
in 1 s5i T ami other societies for the public good. 

, Burglary. — The store of Capt. Solomon Spaul- 
diug was broken into Jan. 6, and a few dollars in 



| change taken from one drawer; the thief was prob- 
j ably frightened by an artificial alarm connected with 
another drawer, so not much was stolen. 

Awful Death. — On the morning of Jan. 9, a 
little past six o'clock, smoke was discovered to be issu- 
ing from the lobby which is situated in the south-east 
corner of the City II ill basement. The fire was soon 
extinguished, but the smoke was so dense that the 
lobby could not be reached very soon; finally, it was 
found that three men, who were confined there for 
drunkenness about midnight the night before, were 
dead. How the fire originated is a matter of conjec- 
ture; the two cells were made of plank, and it is sup- 
posed that it originated in the east cell, where Saun- 
ders was confined. Coroner J. Rockwood called a 
jury of inquest, and they rendered a verdict that they 
were suffocated by the smoke. Their names were, 
Win. Saunders, who left a wife and family, John Sul- 
I livan, and John llaudine, from 1G to 18 years of age. 

Another Fire. — Saturday night, the 10th, about 
midnight, a fire, was discovered in the shop of Joseph 
Slattery, the Slater, No. 41 Park-st., which did con- 
siderable damage before put out. Soon after, a fire 
broke out in the attic of his house adjoining, but it 
was soon extinguished. 

Ohdinatiox of Mr. Charles J. Hill, of Philadel- 
phia, a graduate of And. Theo. Sem., 1856, over the 
First Congregational Orthodox Church in this city, 
where the Rev. Mr. Jewett was settled, took place 
Jan. 2S. Sermon by Rev. Dr. Todd, nf Pittsfield, 
Mass; Right Hand of Fellowship by Rev. Mr. Jen- 
kins, of Lowell; Address to the Pastor by Rev. Mr. 
Richards; Address to the People by Rev. Mr. March, 
of Woburn. 

Incendiarism. — Night of Feb. 20, some combus- 
tible materials were placed in a privy nearly in the 
rear of the Protective Union Store, on Factory-st., 
and ignited; but the fire apparently went out of itself, 
and not much damage was done. 

Annual Flection. — The vote on the 10th of 
March in this city was, for Governor, Wm. Ilaile 
9G7, John S. Wells G95, scattering 7; for Mayor of 
this city, Thos. W. Gillis was elected ; for Representa- 
tives to the General Court from this city, were elected 
Geo. Stark, J. Harwood, A. B. Cram, F. M. Stimp c on, 
A. F. Stevens I. P. Whitman, J. F. Whittle, II. Park- 
inson, J. M. Flanders, J. F. Andrews. 

A Boy Killed.- — -On Wednesday morning, says 
the Citizen of March 19th, as Justin, son of Reuben 
Wheeler, of Nashua, N. II., was playing in a yard at 
the side of his house, he ran against a post, striking 
hiin a severe blow on his forehead, near one of the 
temples, which resulted in his death during the eve- 
ning of the same day. 

Robbert. — The residence of Dr. J. G. Graves, 
in Nashua, was entered one night last week, and a 
watch, port-monnaie, and other valuables, were car- 
ried off. The doctor and wife heard the thief, but 
thought it was the cat. — Not far from the same time, 
Hiram Baldwin's house was entered, but the robbers 
were probably frightened away by the barking of a dog. 

A Bold Villain Caught. — O. K. Bradford, a 
house painter and dealer in paper-hangings, entered 
the house of J. M. Hunt, cashier of the Nashua Bank, 
about 11 o'clock eve. of April 11. and remaining till

iscarching his trunk, two bracelets belonging to the 
wife of Dr. Graves, whose house was entered a few 
weeks since in the same manner, and valuable prop- 
erty stolen, were found. He has been sent to the 
state prison for six years. 

Accident. — A staging erected for the purpose of I 
effecting repairs at the Harbor School-house, fell on j 
Wednesday, April 8, and three carpenters were pre- 
cipitated to the ground. Mr. Rodney Dane had his] 
hip broken; a Mr. Hunt was very seriously injured in I 
the head, and in other parts of his body. Mr. Harvey 
Howard had bis foot somewhat injured. 

A Surprised Party. — One day last week (Apr. 
— ), some forty of the married ladies of this city came 
to the conclusion that they had as good a right to have 
a supper as the gentlemen. Accordingly, they ordered 
one at the Indian Head House, and it was a good one, 
as all Col. Gillis's are. They occupied the west din- 
ing-room. After they had been seated at the table, 
the doors between the east and west dining halls, which 
run parallel with each other, were thrown op^n, when 
the ladies discovered their sovereign lords and masters 
in the east hall, partaking of supper, as cosy and un- 
concerned as if nothing had happened. Thereat great 
surprise was manifested, as a matter of course. The 
whole affair was concluded with a dance. — Xashua

Fire. — Three car-loads of cotton belonging to the

NEWBURY, Mass. 

This most ancient town on the Merrimack, and sit- 
uated at its mouth, which at first included what is now 
Newburyport and West Newbury, has an excellent 
history, written by Joshua Coflin, Esq. Most of the in- 
habitants reside on the road, which is a continuation 
of High Street, leading from Newburyport over the 
Old Town bridge to Rowley, and in the western end 
of the town which composes a part of the Old Byfield 
precinct, — the eastern part being covered mostly with 
salt marshes, and owned in small lots by individuals 
living up in the valley, all the way to Andover; the 
lots yielding enough lor a gondola freight, and have 
been occupied by the regular line of their ancestors 
from the early settlement of the town. The southern 
side is covered with fresh meadows mostly, and through 
it runs the crooked and sluggish river Parker, from 
which the first settlers landed at a place near Old 
Town bridge, when they came around from Ipswich in 
their boats to take possession of this land. — and much 
of the northern portion is thinly settled. It is a pood 
farming town where it is cultivated, and formerly large 
quantities of onions were raised, and among the farm- 
ers, the following individuals, I understand, are the 
largest, viz.: Capt. Daniel Adams, David S. Caldwell, 
Eben. P. Ferguson, Edward H., Jos. and Tristram Lit- 
tle, Joseph Lunt, John Northend, Calvin Noyes Perley, 
T. M. Plummer, Gorham P. Sargent, and Green 
Wilds, who occupies the farm of Dununer Academy. 
The next business of most importance is the improve- 
ment of the water privileges; and at the Pearson's 
Miils Village, by the depot, on the Newburyport Rail- 
road in Byfield, are grist-mills owned by Joseph and 
Tappan Pearson, and saw-mills owned by Benj. Pear- 
son, who has common and veneer saws. A little far- 
ther down the river Parker you find the mills of Par- 
kin and Morrill, where they prepare different flavored 
powders from one of the most deadly vegetables to be 
found in the world, which is taken solely by one spe- 
cies of animal in the world, — and in an uncommon 
way, \iz., by applying it to the schueiderian membrane

|Jax. 



Dummer Academy. — The examination at the 
close of the summer term, July 8th, was very satis- 
ftctory to all the spectators. The great revolution 
in the character of the public schools in Newbury, 
Newburyport, and vicinity, had the effect to decrease 
the patronage of Old Dunimer, and for a number of 
years after 1830, but little interest was felt by I he 
public in this institution. But since the appointment 
of Mr. Ilensliaw as Principal, it has been constantly 
"rowing in excellence and public repute, as it was at 
the beginning, when "Old Master Moody" kept it 
until 1789. One of his pupils, Enoch Boynton, with 
silvered beard, who was said to be the only surviving 
pupil, was upon the platform. 

The performances of the pupils in the. afternoon was 
pood, and showed close application to training, in voice 
and style. The school exercises closed with music by 
the Thompson Glee Club from Newburyport. Then fol- 
lowed addresses by Rev. John Pike, of Rowley, the 
President of the Board of Trustees; Hon. Asahel Hun- 
tington, °f Salem ; Hon. Allen W. Dodge, Mr. Hath- 
away, of Medford ; Hon. Henry W. Kinsman, of New- 
buryport ; Dr. Henry C. Perkins, of is. ; Bev. Sam'l 
J. Spalding, of N., who was, at the annual meeting that 
day, elected a Trustee in place of Rev. G. Punchard, 
of Boston, who resigned. The services were closed by 
prayer from Rev. Mr. Carr, of Rowley. 

Noah Noyes, the oldest man in Newbury, in his 
87th year, made his annual visit to Boston on foot, in 
July. He went over the old road, tramping oil" like a 
lad of sixteen, and returned on Friday, not so much 
wearied but that he could attend church all day the 
next Sabbath, walking some two miles from his home. 

Ax Onion, about as big round as a quarter of a 
doll iiygrew upon a seed onion of Frederick S.tickney, 
in Old Town ; and an Apple-tree, belonging to S. M. 

Noyes,put forth four courses of blossoms this summer. 

The samj' Old 'Coos. — On Wednesday, Oct. 
1 tth, Jewett Rogers, jr., of Byfield, killed a raccoon, 
on land of II. G. O. Johnson of Newburyport, that 
weighed 25 1-2 pounds. He had all the spirit of the 
coons, and tore a dog half to pieces, frightened a wo- 
man, and made fight with Mr. Rogers, before he was 
shot. 

Political. — At an enthusiastic Banks meeting in 
Byfield, eve. of Oct. 15th, Win. M. Rogers presided, 
and Parker Dexter, Esq., of Worcester, lectured ; and 
Oct. 29th, at the Town Hall, the Republicans of this 
district (No. 17), met in convention, Hon. Daniel Ad- 
ams presided ; and Alonzo P. Jaijues was chosen Sec- 
retary. Benj. I'M wards, Jr., was nominated for Rep- 
resentative. A District Committee was chosen, viz. : 
Win. D. Rogers, of Newbury ; John M. Richards, of 
Rowley, and Moses Stiles, of W. Newbury. At a 
meeting of the citizens of the District, at Byfield, Oct. 
22d, Maj. Ben. Perley Pooie was nominated as a Re- 
trenchment and Reform Candidate, who replied in a 
letter of most beautit'ul expression. 

A House Killed on the Eastern Railroad at Four 
Rocks, eve. Oct. 30th. 

Festival. — A varied entertainment was given 
at Parker Hall, on Tuesday eve. Nov. 3d, and re- 
peated a few evenings afterwards. Among the novel- 
ties was represented a farmer's kitchen of olden 
times. 



The Canker Worm and Onion Maggot have 
made a terrible havoc this year. Some of the farmers 
reploughcd their onion-fields and put in turnips, and 
some propose to raise tobacco in future, where they 
have raised onions. 

Too Bad. — A father and son, living in the shadow 
of the Great Rock, in Dog town — (by the way. this 
"Dogtown," has been greatly improved since William 
Lucy has employed them to work on his shoes) — who 
have run a S'liii-weekly foot-train to Newburyport for 
many years for a freight of rum, in coming home one 
' clay became bewildered, somehow, when within a short 
distance of home, and inquired the way to Great 
Rock; a W. Newbury wag, going to Newburyport, 
piloted them to the jail, some four miles out of their 
way, and told them that that was the great rock for 
them. The victims at once commenced talking very 
loud about Pearson's Mills, in which the clam seemed 
to take a prominent place. 

A Wild Cat was caught by Jewett Rogers in a 
rabbit snare, Nov. Tth, upon the land of Col. Daniel 
Adams. This wild cat weighed fifteen pounds, was 
gray, ringed with black from the head to the tip of the 
tail, — a ferocious animal, that one would not wish to 
scratch with. 

Summary Items. — Goodrich was arrested eve. of 
Aug. 8th, by Deputy Sheriff Smith, and Marshal 



Westcott. — G. W. Rogers, teacher of Dis. No. 7, was 
surprised by his pupils eve. of Aug. 1 2th, by being

session was at the Town House, Sept. 2d. They dis- 
cussed the subject of fruit-trees at their meeting Dee. 
2d. — George P. Danforth raises 24 varieties of the 
Dahlia flower this year. — Quite a number of persons 
who grew the sugar-cane for experiment this year, 
who reside in this and neighboring places, had the 
juice pressed out in the rolling-mill of John Iluse, at 
Pearson's Mill Village. — The translation of " Dante's 
Vision" by James C. Peabody, Esq., the Byfield poet, 
is spoken of by literary men as a work of superior 
merit. — Winter term of 15 weeks at Dummer Acad- 
eme, commenced Dec. 10th. 



NEWBURYPORT, Mass. 

Sixce the regular lines of large steamers from Eng- 

jhnd, and all the railroads, have centred in Bo ? ton, 

I most of the business done by merchants residing here, 

as well as those of Salem, have had to load and mi- 

j load their merchandise at that great centre of New 

I England, so that these cities, on the Eastern Railroad, 

J are two quiet, good places of retirement from the bus- 

I lie of more business places, as not much but ship- 

I building, manufacturing cloths in four steam-mills, 

and fishing, is being done here at present. But this_ 

place, of about 14,000 inhabitants, has over 25 good" 

schools, besides the Putnam, all free, and, within the 

distance of a few minutes' ride on the railroad, the 

Normal School, at Salem, together with Dummer, 

i Bradford, Merrimack, and Atkinson academics, in

the Valley, and Topsfield and Andover, likewise on 
the railroad not far oil"; has over 1 5 religious societies, 
most of them with large and flourishing churches, of 

the old Puritan stamp of Calvinistic sentiment of the 
Old Church still in existence in 0. T., with Dr. "With- 
in. 'ton for pastor ; and has many charitable societies, 
in good order, besides a large public library to make 
thi'in intelligent, good, and happy, which they appear 
to improve and enjoy. 

And, besides, they have things outward to enjoy, 
ami improve their mental and physical powers — reg- 
ular, wide, and shady streets, places for picnics, the 
river, Plum Island, and the ocean, giving them a 
chance to breathe fresh air in the. fields, up back, or 
swim, sail and fish on the water, and, when tired of 
play, come home and partake of the delicious fruits 
gathered from the gardens planted by their fathers. 

Then, if we look back to days past, we find that 
this town, when first set off from Newbury in 1 704, 
did not include one square mile of territory, and re- 
in lined the smallest town iu the state, until the year 
1851, when it was enlarged so as to include all of its 
parent on the west as far as Turkey Hill and Arti- 
choke river, Running between it and West Newbury; 
and in the same year it was incorporated a city ; that 
since 1G93 the courts of Essex have been held in this 
N. E. corner of that county, and the court-house, by 
the Frog-pond, was built in 1804; that the Newbury-; 
port turnpike to Boston was finished in 1806 ; and 
that, in the same year, over one-twelfth of the shipping 
of Massachusetts was owned in Newburyport; and we 
see that this place was great and prosperous, accord- 
ing to its size, until the great fire of 181 1 swept over 
many acres and destroyed property to the value of 
$1,500,000, by which, and the great sacrifice of men 
and property in the Revolutionary and the last wars. 
it was greatly reduced; but they have built many 
beautiful and substantial ships, and maufactured many 
yards of fine, nice cotton cloths, since. 

This is the place where the eccentric Dexter lived, 
when he bought up a ship-load of warming-pans and 
sent to the West Indies; where Theophilus Parsons, 
the eminent jurist, lived, when J. Q. Adams studied 
law with him ; where Jacob Perkins, the great me- 
chanic, was born in 1706, and lived 50 years; where 
the great George Whiteficld was when he died, in 
17 70. But in Coffin's History of Newbury, with 
others of this town, and in the Newburyport Herald, 
a vast amount may be learned in regard to this place, 
so we pass to the events of 1S57, hoping, in a future 
number of this work, to present a beautifully written 
sketch of this place, by one of its present residents. 

Watch Night. — As is the usage with some re- 
ligious denominations to meet on the evening of the 
year, and continue in prayer and praise until the morn- 
ing of the new year, accordingly the two Methodic 
churches of this city held their meeting together in 
the Purchase-st. Church. On this occasion, the ser- 
mon was by Rev. Sir. Dwight, after which an hour 
was spent in relating Christian experiences; a.season 
of silent devotion followed, and then an audible ex- 
pression of thanks for the grace and mercies of the 
past year, and a prayer for their continuance ; the 
singing of the covenant hymn, and the benediction 
closed the exercises, and immediately after the com- 
mencement of 1857 the congregation retired. It was 
a meeting of much interest.

The Gyrascope, than which, a greater paradox 
never vexed the sages, is attracting the attention of 
mechanics and scientific men. Various theories have 
been invented to account for this seeming paradox. 
If we mistake not, however, it has remained tor some 
of our intelligent Newburyport mechanics to discover 
a theory which fully accounts for all the phenomena, 
and which can be demonstrated to be the true one. 
The above we extract from the Newburyport Herald, 
wherein it is described, and exposition of the theory, 
as it is explained to the editors by Me?-srs. Joseph 
Alley, the organ builder, Daniel II. Smith, machinist 
(who has completed one of the instruments which 
weighs about twenty pounds, the largest one ever 
made), and Norman C. Greenough, the watch-maker.
