Page  1 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, ROCKLAND AND SO. THOMASTON. CHAPTER I. EAST THOMASTON AND ROCKLAND CITY. EAST THOMASTON, after being separated from the parent town, July 28, 1848, proceeded to the election of the usual town officers and transacting other business incumbent upon her as an incorporated town. The first meeting was held on the 23d of August, in the vestry of the Congregational meeting-house; and a vote was passed "to accept the Act" of incorporation passed by the Legislature. In 1848, a scheme was broached for making a new collection district, and locating the custom house in this place. This having met with some opposition, a compromise was effected by establishing a deputy's office here, under the old Waldoboro' district. Of this, Dr. John Merrill was appointed the first deputy collector, his first entry having been made in March, 1849. He was succeeded in May by Elkanah Spear, Jr., who was followed by Walter E. Tolman, in July, 1853, Thos. K. Osgood, in May, 1857, and Geo. W. Kimball, Jr., in June, 1861,-at which time Davis Tilson of this place was appointed collector of Waldoboro' district. The office is now kept in the Custom House block, so called, on Main street. On the establishment of the Maine Telegraph Company, Hon. Knott Crockett with his usual promptness made himself responsible for the portion of stock assigned to this place, was appointed one of its directors, and, in consequence, an office was opened here. The first message received was from Belfast, at nine on the morning of Nov. 29th. A. D. Nichols was appointed the first operator; who was succeeded in 1853 by Sears Ulmer, J. C. Upham, and perhaps some others who VOL. II. 1

Page  2 2 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, staid but a short time, till the present operator, E. W. Austin, took charge of the office. It pays a salary of $500, and its income is about $1800, yearly. The office was removed in Jan. 1857, from the Lime Rock Bank building to the second story of Berry's new block. A number of citizens of this place obtained, Aug. 10th, an act of incorporation for the East Thomaston Bank, with a capital of $50,000; —but the projected institution never went into operation. B. W. Lothrop & Co. this year erected the Spofford block, so called, on land leased for the purpose by the heirs of C. Spofford, at the corner of Main and School streets, containing four stores. 1849. A Town Court for East Thomaston was established by an Act of Aug. 13th, which required one justice of the peace and quorum to be chosen once in three years by the town, who, as Judge of said court, was to have concurrent jurisdiction in the county of Lincoln, and exclusive jurisdiction in the town, over all matters triable by justices of the peace, and over all actions wherein the debt or damage did not exceed $100, provided the defendant resided in the town; also to take cognizance of all larcenies not exceeding $50. A court room was to be provided and expenses defrayed by the town. The act was repealed July 29, 1850, and a Municipal Court for the town of Rockland established in its stead, not materially differing from it, except that the Judge was to be appointed by the Governor and Council and hold his office for seven instead of three years. John C. Cochran was the judge, elected Sept. 17, 1849, for the town court, and the same gentleman first judge of the municipal court, appointed for seven years, August, 1850. In the mean time the place having received a city charter, the first judge under it, Feb. 1, 1855, was Wnm. G. Sargent; succeeded by election of the people, 1856, by Wakefield G. Frye, who, receiving an advantageous offer out west, relinquished the office April 4th, to John A. Meserve; S. C. Fessenden was appointed, April 17, 1857, by the Governor and Council, succeeded March, 1858, by Nathaniel Meservey. In March, 1861, the Municipal Court was abolished by act of legislature, and a Police Court with enlarged jurisdiction substituted, of which M. W. Farwell, the present incumbent, was appointed judge for one year, and at the end of that time was elected by the people to the same office for four years. This court has a good reputation, and is said to have been lately complimented by Judge Cutting as the best in the State except the Supreme Court. At a meeting called June 4th, the town instructed the li

Page  3 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 3 censing board to grant no further licenses; to notify all those selling liquors contrary to law, to cease from the traffic; to prosecute all who, after such notice, continue in the same; to watch all places where such sale is suspected on the Lord's day; and to regard the written allegations of five citizens as sufficient ground for commencing action against suspected venders. These energetic measures, of course, awakened resentment in those interested, insomuch that, in revenge, an unsuccessful attempt was made, November 9th, to blow up the store of F. Cobb, with the families of C. G. Moffitt and A. S. Richmond residing over it; but this only led to more strenuous efforts to detect the perpetrator and suppress the traffic. On September 17th, a judicious and salutary system of by-laws for preventing improper obstructions, disorderly conduct, and disturbances, in the streets, cruelty to animals, indecent exposure in bathing, interruption of meetings, and other offences, was adopted; and 21 police officers were chosen to carry the same into effect. The Partridge and Harden Wharf and Lime-kiln Company was incorporated July 17th, with power to hold real and personal estate not exceeding $15,000. The discovery of gold in California caused, in this and the preceding year, the loss by emigration of some twenty or more of the enterprising young men of the place; and the loss has been more or less continued in later years. But the town still manifested a healthy growth, and about 125 dwellings were erected. Education continued to advance in the place. In November a new and commodious school-house was finished in Grace street; and Thomas K. Osgood came from New Hampshire, and commenced his labors here as a teacher, which he has since conducted with eminent success when not diverted from them by more profitable or less fatiguing pursuits. A series of lectures, by Rev. E. G. Brooks, was delivered in this place, on Common Schools and in favor of the Grade or Prussian system. These were followed in the winter by meetings of the citizens, at which the subject underwent a thorough discussion, which finally led to a partial adoption of that improved system. An attractive temperance celebration of the 4th of July, here, drew large crowds from this and the neighboring towns. A long procession, marshalled by H. G. Berry, with banners and significant mottoes; a fine oration at Rankin's Orchard, by Rev. Mr. Brooks of Bath; and a dinner by E. W. Pendleton, in a spacious pavilion, were its principal features; and one occurrence only, marred its pleasure. This was the

Page  4 4 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, premature discharge of a cannon by which the right arm of Robert Thomas was so badly mangled as to require amputation. A small one-story house, at the North End, owned by Capt. N. Marshall, was consumed by fire on the night of May 30th; insurance, $600. A shocking injury occurred to Reuben Hanson, September 6th, in a lime quarry, by which both of his eyes and one hand were destroyed. Another more fatal accident occurred September 1st, by which Capt. John Booker was drowned from a vessel in the harbor, being drawn overboard by the entanglement of his foot when dropping the anchor. On the 30th November, also, a fatal accident occurred in the fall of an old wooden building on Sea street; crushed by the weight of corn and flour stored above. It was occupied below as a boat-builder's shop by E. M. Merrill, who was instantly killed. The year began with fine sleighing and severe weather; the harbor, Feb. 22d, being frozen over further than the eye could see. The week ending August 17th was most oppressive; the thermometer indicating 950 and 103~ of heat, with an atmosphere of lime dust by day and fog by night. 1850. At an adjournment of the annual meeting, May 15th, a vote was passed to change the name of the town from East Thomaston to ROCKLAND, and instructing the Selectmen to petition the Legislature accordingly. This was done, and the petition complied with by an Act passed July 17, 1850; since which the town, now city, has rejoiced in its chosen name, which, when it is considered that its quarries of lime-rock are the foundation on which the prosperity of the place rests, all must acknowledge to be an appropriate one. Its lime, heretofore known as that of Thomaston, now took the name of Rockland lime in the market; and the place has since by common consent been considered the principal manufactory and depot of lime for the United States. During this year of 1850, there was inspected and sent off the enormous amount of 800,000 casks; which, at 60 cents, the average price on the wharves, amounted to $480,000. The casks used, at their average price for that year, 18 cents, amounted to $144,000; the stone, at 9 cents in the quarry, to $72,000; transporting the same to the kilns, at 6 cents, to $48,000. There were then in use 125 kilns, which, at each burning, on an average, turned out 420 casks, consumed 30 cords of wood, at the average price of $2,50 per cord, and employed two men four days and five nights. The transportation of this lime to market, and the back freights usually obtained, employed 120 coasters, and as many more in bringing

Page  5 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 5 the wood from the eastern coast and islands; over 200 sail of vessels being owned here. Business in general, this year, was good,-three ships going up; a steam mill put in operation by Ambrose Colby, since of Portland, for grinding, sawing, planing and other purposes; the clothing store of O. H. Perry, enlarged, and other mercantile establishments thriving; and many new buildings appearing, among them one of three stories, at the meadows, by Ephraim Ulmer. Among the pleasant things of the season, was a May-day festival held by the ladies in Eagle Hall. On the 29th Aug., also, a grand pic-nic, free, to which all the town was invited and all the world made welcome, was held in the oak grove on the eastern shore of Tolman's Pond, which, on this occasion, was rebaptized by the euphonious name of Chikawauka Lake, or, by interpretation, (somewhat apocryphal,) " the lake of smiling waters." About 2000 citizens were present, Larkin Snow presided, speeches were made by Messrs. Kalloch, Osgood, Farwell, Richmond and Holmes, the new name was reported by a committee of which R. T. Slocomb was chairman, and all departed well pleased with the good cheer, joyous greetings, and magnificent scenery. The summer of 1850 was variable, with many long rains and high freshets. During a terrible storm of wind and snow, Dec. 23d, the schooner Niagara, lying in the harbor, and lime-loaded, dragged her anchors, struck a ledge, and, taking fire, was a total loss, —the captain and crew having been taken off, many of them insensible from cold and 12 hours' exposure. Schooner Violet drove ashore and was left high and dry on the beach, uninjured, as was also a brig with masts cut away, at Clam Cove. This storm called out an article in the GAZETTE advocating the erection of a Breakwater to protect the harbor from storms; which was followed, in 1852, by a petition to Congress, of Knott Crockett and 807 other citizens of this place, for the construction of such a work; but there was no report in its favor, and nothing has yet been obtained. In 1855, a bill making appropriation for this purpose, among others, was introduced into the U. S. Senate by Hon. W. P. Fessenden, and passed there, but failed in the House. The first step towards this desirable improvement of the harbor had been taken by Government as early as 1835; when a survey was made by Ward B. Burnett, 2d Lieut. in U. S. army, on topographical duty. This officer reported in favor of the project, having found an eligible site for constructing a breakwater 825 yards long in the central part of the harbor, on a shoal consisting of rocks, 1*

Page  6 6 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, more or less covered with smaller rocks and stones, and estimating the cost at $1,000,000; but, in consequence of the rival claims of Owl's Head harbor for a similar work, no appropriation was at that time made for either. It remains to be settled whether this object is to be accomplished by the General Government, the people of this city,. the joint action of both, or given up altogether.On the morning of Nov. 7th, a fire broke out at the rear of the Rockland House in the boat-builder's shop of the Messrs. Dyer. This building and its contents were completely destroyed to the value of about $3000, the heaviest loss falling on Chas. S. Cables, who occupied the upper part as a carriage shop. Although hotel stables and piles of seasoned lumber were in close proximity, yet by the active exertions of the two fire companies nothing further was even scorched. This fortunate escape, due in a great measure to the tide being in at the time, had the effect to awaken the citizens to a sense of their danger and the necessity of a better supply of water at all times. At a meeting for the purpose, Nov. 28th, $400 in addition to $200 at the annual meeting, were raised by the town for repairing engines, purchasing hooks and ladders, and constructing reservoirs, to be expended under direction of Jona. White, C. Holmes, and John S. Coburn, committee. A voluntary night-watch was also organized Dec. 1st; Dr. G. Ludwig, S. H. Fuller, and F. Harden, were chosen officers; hooks were provided; and members classified to serve by rotation. The Rockland Water Company was created by an Act passed August 20, 1850, with power to construct an aqueduct from Chikawauka Lake into and through the village of Rockland, to regulate the use; distribution, and prices of said water, and to hold real and personal estate not exceeding $75,000; on condition, however,'that at the end of ten years, on the refunding all the expenditures and ten per cent. in addition, the town, at its option, was to have the right to take and control all the property and privileges, of said corporation. A preliminary survey by R. T. Slocomb, and estimate of cost was made; and the subscriptions to the stock, by exertions of Jere. Berry, and others, soon amounted to within $4000 of the sum required. This balance was taken by the New York firm of Ball & Co., in part payment for a supply of their newly invented Indestructible Water-pipe, of which it was * Burnett's Report to Lt. Col. Long, Topog. Engineer, dated Concord, N. H., Nov. 20, 1835.

Page  7 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 7 computed that 30,898 feet would be required, from one to nine inches bore. The company was, in February, 1851, duly organized by choice of I. K. Kimball, president, C. Holmes, treasurer, and C. L. Lowell, clerk. Mr. Ball contracted to excavate the trenches,-six miles, for $4000, and, all over that distance, for $1 a rod. This was completed, and the Chikawauka water reached the city, through its subterranean channel, by the middle of November. The $30,000 stock being thus expended, a further subscription of $10,000 was obtained; and, in October, 1852, the directors reported that 14 miles of pipe had been laid, 225 rods of which, on account of deep cutting and rock, had been subjected to an extra expenditure of $5000, that the whole cost amounted to $46,000, that the number of takers was 400, and rapidly increasing, at $6 per family, and that, from the first nine month's profits, a dividend of four per cent. had been declared. McLain's mill at the outlet of the lake was purchased, and in 1855 rebuilt, at a cost of $10,185; and the whole expenditure of the company up to 1855, at which time Wm. A. Farnsworth was president and M. Sumner secretary and treasurer, amounted to $67,411; capital stock, increased by that year's dividend, $55,000, leaving a debt of $11,821. Continuing to apply its income to the reduction of the company's debt, and paying off the dividends by new certificates of stock, the latter was increased to over $70,00. The stockholders becoming impatient of slow returns, in the spring of 1857 the rates were raised to $10 per family. This gave great dissatisfaction, which continued till the rates were reduced in the following August. Soon after the separation of the town, the subject of a Poorhtouse and farm was agitated; and, at the April meeting of this year, it was voted to offer Lewis McLain the sum of $2500 for his (the Mosman) farm, with the reversion of the widow's dower. This offer was at that time rejected; but the farm was finally purchased in the fall; and the house upon it furnished ample accommodation as an almshouse till 1860; when, from the increased number of paupers, consequent on the increase of intemperance, it was found to be too small, and a large addition was built. At a meeting, March 25th, the town voted $500, (increased, May 15th, by $100 more,) for the purchase of a cemetery; and the selectmen were instructed to lay out such portion of the same as they thought proper, and dispose of the lots at auction,-fencing and ornamenting the grounds with the money given for the right of choice. The ground purchased

Page  8 8 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, was five acres, at Jameson's Point, within the limits of Camden, in a beautiful situation, commanding, in some portions, a view of Rockland and the intervening water; and which is capable, by the addition of trees and shrubbery in connection with the adjacent forest, of being made a lovely and congenial place for depositing the ashes and communing with the spirits of the sacred dead. An ordinance respecting the sale and conveyance, fencing and ornamenting of this cemetery, was passed by the City Council in 1859. The former pastor of the 1st Baptist church of this place, Rev. Amariah Kalloch, died June 16th, of this year, near Sacramento City, California, just as his numerous friends here were expecting his return. He was an able and successful minister, of great mental power, and of a winning and prepossessing appearance. His loss was deeply lamented not only by the church that had grown up with him here, but by the citizens and community at large, and particularly his own denomination, in whose Associations he had frequently presided and always been an efficient member. The death of President Taylor was duly noticed in this place, and an oration or eulogy delivered by T. K. Osgood, at the 1st Baptist church on the evening of August 18th. 1851 opened with frequent storms, obstructed mails, and greater depth of snow than had been known for eight or ten years. At the close of July and first of August, the bay and harbor here were literally alive with mackerel, affording the citizens sport even to weariness in taking them. On the 27th of August the house occupied by Mrs. Rhoades was struck by lightning, which demolished the chimney, tore off the plastering, set fire to a bed, rudely knocked down a lady, and finally, after assaulting a stove and silencing a tea-kettle, made a hasty exit through the cellar. At the same time there was a flash and explosion like that of a pistol, in the Telegraph office near by. Then followed a season of severe heat, dust, and drought, which was not broken by rain till Sept. 23d; but which was borne patiently on account of the facilities it afforded for laying the pipes of the aqueduct. On Sunday, Sept. 14th, the dwelling of John Keen in the northwestern part of the town, took fire whilst the family were all absent, and, with the furniture, papers, accounts, and notes, was wholly consumed. The schooner Fortune of this port having on board Thomas M. Stearns, master, and Wm. H. Stearns, mate, of this town, and two others, left New York for this place with a cargo of corn and flour; was last seen

Page  9 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 9 off Chatham, Nov. 25th; and was supposed to have been lost in the snow storm of that evening. The strong and general interest in the temperance cause, characteristic of Rockland, was more strongly manifested this year by a number of crowded mass meetings under direction of the different temperance organizations. Nor was the movement confined to this place, but a general interest seemed to be awakened through the State, more especially by means of the Sons of Temperance. At the State celebration of this order held here July 11th, a procession, marshalled by Messrs. F. Cobb, C. Holmes, and E. W. Pendleton, and consisting of Lime Rock, Farmer's and Mechanics, Oak, and Hyperion Divisions, Cadets of Temperance, Temple of Honor, and Watchman's Club, (all, except the first, being new organizations formed within the two preceding years) with the fire companies, brass band, committee of arrangements, clergy, and the Grand Division, marched to Rankin's Grove; where a concourse of 5000 people listened to eloquent addresses from Arnold S. Richmond, president of the day, Revs. Fessenden and Kalloch of this place, and many gentlemen from other parts of the State. The mass meetings continued every fortnight through the winters of 1851 and 1852; and, with strict watchfulness and prompt prosecutions under the new Maine Law, effected almost a complete annihilation of the baneful traffic. Every influential business man, it was stated, was in favor of temperance; and, instead of the great number of paupers formerly maintained, there was now but a solitary one, remaining in the poor-house. A young men's Literary club was formed in the autumn of 1851; $200 were raised by sale of tickets, and a course of lectures provided; which were by Rev. Messrs. Wrm. Ware of Cambridge, on "Kossuth," November 25th; William A. Drew, on the " world's fair," December 5th; Chas. F. Allen of Bath, on " Cromwell," December llth; Prof. Packard of Bowdoin College, on "nationality," January 7, 1852; J. W. Chickering of Portland, on "Switzerland," January 23d; Sylvester Judd of Augusta, on "the beautiful," February 2d; George Shepard of Bangor, on "' reading," March 6th, and April 20th; and Theodore Parker of Boston, on " false and true idea of a gentleman," March 9th. This year was distinguished for business prosperity and the rapid growth of the place. The spacious Kimball block, of brick, three stories in height, on the eastern side of Main street, having been in progress since 1848, was now. opened, furnishing six new stores on the first floor, and on the second floor accommodations for the Bank, Insurance, lawyers' and

Page  10 10 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, other offices. A large number of buildings of different descriptions were going up. The Lindsey field, of 14 acres, a short distance north of Lime Rock and Main streets, was purchased by A. H. Kimball and Isaac C. Abbott, laid out in some 75 building lots, and four or five of them improved as such not long after by the owners. The Crockettpastzre (as it was six years earlier) was now also in demand for building purposes; and to facilitate renting, the first house-brokerage office was opened by M. S. Whiting, at his law office in the Spofford block. Two large ships, one of them of 1700 tons-the largest ever before built in Maine-and other vessels, building; the manufacture of 741,000 casks of lime and the construction of the water works, rendered business unusually lively. Of the merchants in the place, (nearly 100,) not a single failure occurred during the year. The Rockland Bank was incorporated, May 31st, with a capital of $50,000, and the right of increasing it to $100,000 on or before April 1, 1853. The stock was taken up almost wholly by citizens of the place; and the bank went into operation the following October. The present capital is $150,000, the number of stockholders 168, and its annual dividend 6 per cent. Alfred H. Kimball has been president and Wm. H. Titcomb cashier, from the beginning. The office is kept in the Kimball block, Main street; discount day, Tuesday. Nor was this prosperity confined to business alone; a marked improvement was manifest in the cause of education, publie morals, mental culture, and social intercourse. The East Thomaston, now Bockland Athenceum, an association for forming a library, after a preliminary meeting of seven individuals, had met Feb. 7, 1850, and chosen for president Jas. O. L. Foster, then in the practice of law here; A. C. Spalding, vice president, W. H. Titcomb, secretary, C. Holmes, treasurer, and a board of seven directors. It commenced with a capital stock of $1000, and 100 share-holders, who were to pay an annual tax of two dollars each, and other subscribers to share its privileges by paying $3 a year or $1 a quarter. A suitable room was provided in the Kimball block and fitted up at a cost of $157, carpeted by the ladies, hung with engravings, and furnished with nearly 1000 standard volumes, and the periodicals of the day,-of which the British Quarterlies and Hunt's Merchant's Magazine were gratuitously bestowed by Col. C. A. Macomber. This library was removed, in Jan., 1857, to Berry's new block, where it still retains some 1800 volumes of standard works, and is one of the most valuable institutions of the city. By council duly called, the Second Baptist Church in Rock

Page  11 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 1 land was formed, Nov. 26th of this year, consisting of 12 male and 8 female members of the 1st church, cordially dismissed for the purpose, together with three from churches in other towns, —mostly residents at the North End. At the first church meeting, Dec. 13th, John Porter and J. Riley Bowler were chosen deacons; succeeded, Feb. 12, 1859, by Waterman Fales and Joseph R. Walker. Rev. Winthrop 0. Thomas, dismissed from Lincolnville church, was pastor in 1852 at $300, the two following years at $400, and 1855 at $500,-continuing his very acceptable services till Dec. 26, 1858, and then removing for a time to Leavenworth, Kansas. On the 29th Dec. 1852, their church edifice, standing in a commanding situation at the North End, was dedicated; having been built on contract for $8000 by Col. H. G. Berry, and furnished with a town clock by subscription of the citizens at large, a communion service by Mrs. Geo. Thomas, a sofa by H. G. Berry, two stuffed chairs by Messrs. Sawyer & Colson, a table by H. Burpee, a chandelier and pulpit lamps by Secornb & Taylor of Boston, a bible by Dr. J. M. Blaisdell and W. G. Sargent, Esq., and a copy of the Psalmist by T. K. Osgood. The pews sold for a sum sufficient to cover the cost of the house. In March, 1859, Rev. Joseph Kalloch became the pastor, and still continues his services. The church has suffered somewhat from the death or removal of members; but the whole number in 1863 was 109, and its number of S. S. scholars 110, with a library of 400 volumes." An Antiquarian Singing Choir under the lead of Mr. Harrington, gave repeated and very successful concerts in the winter of 1851-2, the proceeds of which were distributed among the poor and needy families. 1852. For a week or more prior to April 22d, there was a constant succession of east and north-east gales and storms; one of which lasted from Sunday till Wednesday, so violent that few could stand against it, and the steamers Governor, Boston, and Eastern State, were obliged to seek shelter till it was over. A drought succeeded; during which, June 6th, a fire broke out at Brown's Corner, in a barn, from which it rapidly spread to the store and dwelling of Wm. Lovejoy, and thence to the dwelling of Edward Lovejoy; which were consumed, but the goods and furniture saved. Loss about $3000. The greatest exertions of the citizens were necessary to save the neighboring buildings. During a protracted shower, June 22, the schooner Rio Grande, Capt. Hix, at anchor in this * Church records; Minutes of the Association.

Page  12 12 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, harbor, was struck by lightning, her masts shattered, and house split its whole length. On the morning of December 28th, a fire broke out in the dwelling of D. C. Dinsmore, at the North End, which, with its contents and the furniture of a Mr. Lord, stored there, was consumed. The loss to this industrious mechanic, $1500, not being insured, the citizens with their characteristic liberality immediately raised a handsome sum for his relief and something towards that of Mr. Lord. Among the other signs of progress, was the building of a number of new stores on the west side of Main, below Spring street, three in one block, by Mitchell & Young, with a large hall above called Beethoven; another block by Wm. Wilson; and still another, by G. W. Palmer. New streets were laid out in various directions; and it was said that some 300 dwellings, stores, and other buildings, besides two churches elsewhere mentioned, were going up. Among others, George Lindsey repaired and enlarged his dwelling, which has since been converted into a tavern known as the Lindsey House, and which he had erected in 1835, —himself burning the lime, making the brick, and hauling the materials. A marine railway, wharves, kilns, and ship-yards, were built at the southern end of the harbor; and no less than 1,000,000 casks of lime were burnt during the year. The Roclckand Lime Rock Company was incorporated March 23d, with a capital not exceeding $10,000, for draining or otherwise removing the water from the range of quarries near Alden Ulmer's and improving the same. A plank road having been in agitation and advocated by many, was, as early as April 15, 1850, voted by the town to be built for twenty. rods on Lime Rock street, by way of experiment; and now, April 13, 1852, the Rockland Plank Road Company, with a capital of $25,000, was incorporated' for the purpose of constructing a plank road from the Austin quarries near the Thomaston line, to the lime kilns near the shore, with a branch to the quarries at Brown's Corner. But, in the mean time, the result of the town's experiment began to appear. It was found that the three-inch planks used, were, in less than two years, cut through by the heavily loaded wheels employed in the transportation of limestone; and the plan was abandoned. In 1853 an additional Act authorized the company to substitute a macadamized for a plank road, on any portion of the same; and, in 1864, on petition of F. Cobb and others, a railroad was granted by the legislature. from the quarries to the wharves.

Page  13 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMIASTON. 13 Mr. Colby's steam engine, of 25 horse power, was purchased this year by the Rocldand Steam llIanufacturing Company, consisting of I. K. and A. H. Kimball, Jos. C. Libbey, and H. G. Berry, which was incorporated April 2d, with power to hold property not exceeding $30,000, and to manufacture wood, iron, &c. It did a good business, especially in the manufacture of doors, sashes and blinds, till destroyed by fire in 1855. The Roclcand Fire and Marine Insurance Company was incorporated Feb. 7th, with a capital of $50,000; and in March following duly organized by the choice of N. A. Farwell, John Gregory, Jona. White, A. H. Kimball, F. Cobb, C. W. Shaw, and C. McLoon, directors; Mr. Farwell was appointed its first and, as yet, only president; and E. Spear, Jr., secretary, succeeded, Jan. 1854, by Maynard Sumner, the present incumbent. It has been very prosperous in its operations. In Dec. 1852, the Advertiser, a small weekly sheet which had been published nearly a year at Camden, was removed to this place and here issued under the new name of COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER. It was published by F. C. Messenger, and continued till 1854. Aug. 31st of the same year, appeared the PINE TREE STATE, a political campaign paper, published six weeks here and at Camden, under patronage of Hon. E. K. Smart, of the latter place. The year was somewhat memorable for political excitement, no less than three congressional conventions being held in this place; one, the democratic, proving very stormy and at length splitting into two, and nominating Hon. Iddo K. Kimball of Rockland and Hon. M. H. Smith of Warren as their respective candidates. Jas. O. L. Foster, Esq., was nominated for the same office by the free soil convention; but, in consequence of these divisions, Hon. E. W. Farley, the whig candidate, was elected. The Rockland Lyceum was organized in the fall of 1852, and, under its auspices, lectures delivered, by Messrs. Joseph Harvey of Amherst; E. G. Brooks of Lynn; Geo. Shepherd of Bangor; Wm. Smyth of Brunswick; C. F. Allen of Bath; E. B. Webb and Asa Dalton of Augusta; G. F. Talbot of E. Machias; J. W. Hanson, Gardiner; J. P. Skeele; Henry Giles of Bucksport; U. Balkam of Wiscasset; E. Whittlesey of Bath; W. A. Drew of Augusta; and closing with H. Giles again, April 8, 1853. The Youth's Educational Union was organized this year, by Z. Pope Vose and seven other young people of the place, for purposes of self-imprpvement, It continued for some VoL. I, 2

Page  14 14 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, four or five years, and contained considerable native talent; publishing in 1854 a small volume of 218 pages of original compositions, under the title of The Stray Sunbeaz, edited by AMr. Vose, Cynthia I. McIntosh, 1-1. F. Perry, and S. Francis White; which, though now regarded by some of its widely scattered members as a youthful indiscretion, is a pleasant memento of happy hours, and exhibits marks of fine feeling, taste, and the germs of genius, since more amply developed and appreciated. About the same time, The Dial, of 29 pages, was published; being a creditable number of a semi-monthly paper got up by Mr. Osgood's pupils, at Grace street school. The MIethodist Episcopal Society of Rockland, whose house of worship here was erected in 1829 or'30, and whose history has been already brought down to 1838, in chapter XVI, had continued to thrive under the preaching of Revs. A. Caldwell, 1839-40; John Atwell, 1841; Thomas Greenhalgh, 1842; C. C. Cone, 1843; J. C. Perry, 1844-5; Charles Baker. 1846; L. P. French, 1847-8; J. Atwell, 1849-50; and Geo. Pratt, 1851-2. Having now, from a handful of humble believers, become a numerous and able body, they put up the present year an addition to their chapel, of 12 or more feet, making a commodious and neat church, with sittings for 500 persons, which, in 1862, was valued at $5000. Mr. Pratt has been succeeded by Revs. H. C. Tilton, 1853-4; A. Church, 1855-6; C. F. Tupper, 1857-8; Wm. H. Crawford, 1859; C. B. Dunn, 1860; Barnet M. MAitchell, 1862; and E. W. Hutchinson, 1863. In 1862, the number of church members was 107; probationers, 24; Sabbath School scholars, 75; volumes in library, 200; preacher's receipts, $346; value of parsonage, $ 1200.`'x 1853. The year opened sadly in this place; —a fire breaking out at eleven o'clock on New Year's eve, in the attic of the northern half of the Kimball block. When first discovered, such damage was done to the roof and upper story, that strong fears were entertained for the whole block and the wooden buildings across the narrow street; but, by exertions of the fire companies and citizens at large, among whom Messrs. Chas. S. Crockett, J. Cables, Israel Perry, J. S. Coburn, and I. Gregory were particularly noticed, aided by full hydrants and a storm of sleet which covered every wall with ice, the fire was arrested and finally got under. The loss was estimated at $7000 to I. Kimball on the building; $1500 to - Church Records, Mr. S. Albee, Conference Minutes.

Page  15 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 15 Kimball & Tate, hardware merchants, both uninsured; $4500 to B. W. Sawyer & Co., furs, &c.; $10,000 or $12,000 to E. Barrett, dry goods, on the first floor, insured; while on the second floor the Municipal Court room, the law office of C. L. Lowell, Esq., dentist's office of Dr. J. E. Hunt, with their contents, were all destroyed; as well as the hall and rooms occupied by Relief Lodge of I. 0. of 0. F., Lime Rock Div. S. of T., and a chapter of the Temple of Honor, on the third floor. Much damage also was sustained by others in the removal of goods, and the pilfering, which was carried on to so great an extent that strong suspicions of incendiarism were awakened. Roused to a sense of danger by this occurrence, the town, at a meeting called Jan. 29th, voted that the selectmen and auditors of accounts purchase two fire engines and necessary apparatus; provide and locate suitable engine houses; and hire the amount of money necessary, to be paid in four annual instalments. This action, though prompt, was altogether too tardy for the events which followed. A second fire succeeded on the morning of Feb. 28th, in the clothing store of S. E. Benson, Jr., which was totally consumed, with most of his stock in trade, estimated at $,3000, insured $2000. The adjoining establishment of M. E. Thurlo and the office of W. G. Sargent over it, were torn down to prevent extension of the flames; whilst a barber's shop and two shoemaker's shops were wholly destroyed, without any insurance. Just one month later, March 28th, still another fire occurred in and totally consumed a wooden building on Main street, belonging to S. Rankin, the lower part being occupied as a provision store by the owner, and as a variety store by Ephraim Gay, who lost a new stock of goods worth $5000, wholly uninsured; and the upper story occupied as dwellings by Win. 0. Fuller and M. C. Andrews, who lost all their clothing and furniture, Andrews only being insured for $250. But the greatest fire of the season and most destructive one ever before experienced here or perhaps in any part of the State, took place at three o'clock in the morning of May 22d. It broke out in the rear of S. Pillsbury's store on Main street, consuming all the buildings on the west side of that street from the store of Larkin Snow on the corner of Spring street to Holmes's block on Lime Rock street inclusive, -the Commercial and Rockland hotels, Holmes's, Thornd ike's, Spofford's, and Shipbuilder's Bank, blocks; and all immediately opposite on the east side;- including Berry's stables, and those of Dennis, Thorndike, and Young; 23- stores; and a

Page  16 16 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, large number of dwellings and other buildings. The total loss was estimated at fiom $150,000 to $200,000, and the insurance on the same at about $60,000. The causes which led to so extensive a destruction of property, were, the strong wind blowing at the time; the lack of water in the hydrants, from its having been shut off a few days before, and the tide being out; together with a want of engines; — the only one in town not being in good working condition, and the two new ones ordered not having yet arrived, though both those from Thomaston with many of its citizens came and rendered effective aid. Notwithstanding the hurry and confusion of the crowds engaged in arresting the flames and removing goods, no serious accident to life or limb happened, except that J. Spofford, Esq., broke his shoulder blade and arm in falling through the scuttle of a store, John Bennett had his face and hands badly burnt in rescuing some hose, and Mrs. T. Frye was slightly injured in escaping from her burning house. The two new engines being at length received and named, the one Dirigo, No. 3, and the other Defiance, No. 4, measures were immediately taken to form a company for the management of each of them. Two effective companies were accordingly organized,, the former under Wm. G. Berry and Elijah Walker, first and second foremen, with G. L. Smith and C. S. Crockett, foremen of the hose; and the latter, under officers not ascertained. These did good service without any compensation, till the city council made, in April, 1855, an appropriation of $150 for each company. This sum not proving satisfactory, the Dirigo company refused further service and voted to disband. It, or a new one, was immediately re-organized, however; and both companies have continued their organization to the present time, contributing much to the security of life and property, as well as to the general credit and respectability of the city. The business of Rockland was never more prosperous than in 1853; though its usual substratum, that of lime, fell off this year, on account of the scarcity of eastern wood, to 613,323 casks. Yet 40 or more new kilns for its manufacture were built, at an average cost of $800 or $900. Ship-building was also actively prosecuted; one of its distinguished exploits being the clipper ship Red Jacket, of 2500 tons, which, a few months after, performed the passage from New York to Liverpool in thirteen days, one hour and twenty-five minutes; the quickest, it was then said, on record. Many stores and other buildings, also, were going up in various parts of the

Page  17 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 17 village. Among these last, were a brick block by Capt. John Spear, on Main street, with three spacious stores below and dwellings above; and, in the northern part of the village, a like block, by Jos. Hewett, and another, of four stores, by Constant Rankin. At Ingraham's Point, great improvements were made, especially by the Atlantic Ship Whaif and Lime Manufacturing Company, which was incorporated March 19th, with a capital of $50.000, and power to construct a wharf not exceeding 800 feet into tide waters. It was organized April 30th, by the choice of H. Ingraham, president, and F. Cobb, treasurer, and the same with Sidney B. Morse of Boston, and H. C. Lowell and Thomas Colson, directors. After the burning of the public houses mentioned, the large wooden dwelling, recently owned by Charles Holmes, on Lime Rock street, was fitted up for a hotel, and opened June 13th, by J. C. Merrill, last from Gardiner. Adjoining the Kimball block, which was also enlarged, a block was built by Berry & Abbott, of brick, with a cast iron front to the second story, containing three stores, with offices above; a large wooden store by W. A. Farnsworth, on the site formerly occupied by him on Main street, at the head of Sea street; and a block of three very large and fine stores by Jeremiah Berry, on the site of the late Commercial House. Messrs. Dyer & Co. of Portland, established themselves, in the spring, as brass founders and machinists, at the North End. The steamboat Rockland, of 195 tons, was this year built at Hoboken, N. Y., and, August 21st, entered upon her route between Rockland and Machias, under the command of Capt. E. S. Blaisdell of this place; and has proved a popular little steamer for various excursions with our citizens. For this, or some kindred enterprise, the Maine Steam Navigation Company, comprising many leading men of this place and Camden, was incorporated Jan. 31st. The "' Rockland" was, for some reason, sold in 1858,-and bid off by F. Cobb and others of this place, for $7800. The Rockland Gas Light Company was incorporated March 5, 1853, and, under the care of R. Young, superintendent, commenced making gas at 9, A. M., Jan. 13, 1855,-lamp-posts being erected in different places, and the city first lighted up by its means in June, 1855. An Act for the protection of the shores, docks and harbor of Rockland from injury, by the deposit of core and other waste matter from the lime kilns, was passed March 10th, and a fine of ten dollars imposed for every offence of the kind. The Ship-builders' Bank in Rockland was incorporated March 7th, with.a capital of $100,000; and such was its 2*.

Page  18 18 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, prestige that its stock was rapidly taken up, and its business commenced in June, auspiciously, under direction of Henry C. Lowell, president, and Wm. L. Pitts, cashier. Some obscurity has ever rested upon the affairs of this Bank; but it would seem that the confidence reposed in these officers was such that the directors neglected the ordinary precautions against their mismanagement. The bonds given by the cashier were not renewed at the expiration of his first year, and he, with or without the knowledge of the president, rushed into hazardous speculations with the funds of the Bank, to supply the loss of which a vast and unknown amount of its bills were put in circulation without the knowledge of the directors, or any record by which the amount could be ascertained. These circulated for a time without suspicion; but, as they began to return faster than the Bank was able to redeem them, embarrassments arose. New officers (viz., A. K. Kimball, president, and A. W. Kennedy of Warren, cashier,) were appointed, and attempts were made to examine into the cause of defalcation. These attempts resulted in nothing certain, except that the funds of the Bank had disappeared, a large amount of its paper had been clandestinely put in circulation, no bondsmen were found liable, its credit was gone, and the former cashier had absconded to avoid arrest. Its affairs were put into the hands of receivers, Jan. 10, 1855; and Mr. Lowell, unable to face the defrauded stockholders and an indignant public, whose confidence and esteem he had till then fully enjoyed, sought a retreat for his family and his mortification in the far West. On the 13th of January, the house of the Free- Will Baptist Society of Rockland, completed and finished, was dedicated to the worship of God by the usual services, including a sermon by Rev. P. Weaver, address to the church and society by Rev. J. Mariner, and dedicatory hymn written for the occasion by Mrs. Ramsey. The edifice is situated on Camden street, in the north-eastern part of the city, and has accommodations for 200 persons, being valued, by the census of 1860, at $2000. An elegant bible was presented to the society by Dr. Thos. Frye, a choice table by Franklin N. Brown, and $257 contributed for the purchase of a belL The church was organized as early as June 27, 1851, and consisted of seven members only, of whom J. H. Young was chosen standing clerk, and Hollis Kirkpatrick, deacon. Its members, in 1862, amounted to 120,-Jacob Thomas and Stephen Prescott being then deacons, and Abel Walker standing clerk. The pastors of this society have been, Rev. Wmn. H..

Page  19 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 19 Littlefield, from June, 1852, to April, 1859; Rev. Jason Mariner, from June, 1860, to June, 1862; and, in Nov., 1862, Rev. Ebenezer Knowlton, succeeded, in 1864, by Rev. Albert P. Tracy;. The corner stone of an Episcopal Church, also, named St. Peters, on Park street, was laid, July 11th of this year, with appropriate ceremonies by Rt. Rev. Bishop Geo. Burgess. Notwithstanding the discouragement consequent on the great fire in May preceding, in which were totally destroyed the temporary place of worship and church furniture of the small band which, on the 18th of January,.had been organized into the parish of St. Peters and obtained the services of a rector, the building was, under the advice and generous gift of Bishop Burgess, now commenced and by the end of February, 1854, brought to a successful close. This edifice, in Gothic style, 65 feet long by 35 feet wide, with four buttresses on each side and at the gable an octagonal tower surmounted by a cross, with a stained glass window, ornaments, and devices, is capable of seating 300 persons; and cost between $3000 and $4000. Much of the expense was defrayed by contributions from churches of the order in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. A tower and spire were added in May, 1858. The first and only rector, thus far, of this church, was Rev. George Slattery, who came from Saco, preached his first discourse here July 11, 1852, and continued the duties of his office till his resignation was, April 10, 1860, accepted with much regret by his parish. The wardens, senior and junior, of this church have been in different years, N. G. Bourne, W. L. Pitts, C. N. Germaine, Richard Walker, Lewis Hall, Chas. A. Reed, Jos. Benson, O. G. Hall, and S. H. Holbrook. There were interesting temperance lectures this season by Rev. S. C. Fessenden, John Hawkins, the reformed drunkard, and others; and, under the operation of the Maine law and its faithful execution, during two months from July 1st, by I. G. Day, constable and keeper of the lock-up, (for the erection of which $200 had been voted the previous year,) it appeared that there was 60 per cent. less of drunkenness in the place than in the months preceding. The Lime Rock and Hyperion divisions of S. of T. held a pleasant celebration, Dec. 24th, with a procession, appropriate addresses, and refreshments at Beethoven Hall; and a series of bi-monthly mass meetings commenced Jan. 18, 1854. The Benevolent Union Association, for the relief of the Rockland Gazette, communication of Abel Walker, Esq.

Page  20 20 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, destitute, was formed at the close of Nov. 1853, with Messrs. N. A. Farwell, G. J. Burns, T. K. Osgood, and J. Wakefield, as officers. On the evening of January 3, 1853, two young men, gunning on Jameson's Point, discovered the dead bodies of a man and woman, their broken boat and its contents, in the surf on and near the shore. They proved to be those of John Smith and his wife, long the only occupants of Laisdell's Island, who had visited Camden for a few New Year purchases, on the 31st, starting for home and their lonely children just before dark; had met a head wind and some sea, and, running for Rockland harbor, had kept in too near the Point, struck a rock, and, bewildered by the darkness and chilled by the cold, failed to reach the shore. On the the 16th July, during a heavy shower, one barn and four dwellings were struck by lightning; and, on the evening of September 6th, the place was again visited by a smart thunder shower, during which, a horse belonging to J. Wakefield was supposed to have been killed by the lightning, though the building, a few feet from which he stood, was not struck. As Oliver Gay of this place, and Chas. Winslow, formerly of Waldoboro', were engaged in blasting rock at the marine railway, on Ingraham's Point, September 19th, having put in a charge and ignited the fuse, they withdrew a sufficient time, as they supposed, but unfortunately returned at the moment of its explosion. Gay was much injured, and Winslow's skull so badly shattered that he died the next day. On the 7th October, Joseph D. Thurston, employed at the machine shop of Thurston & Ingraham, at the North End, whilst under derangement in a typhoid fever, during the temporary absence of his brother, left his room in the night time; and, notwithstanding an immediate search, no trace of him was discovered till Sunday, when he was found dead, having made his way 120 feet up into a subterranean passage, which crossed the street in the immediate vicinity of the work-shop. A storm of snow with a violent north-east wind occurred December 29th, blocking up the roads and stopping the mails west of Bath for six days, so that 14 mail-bags arrived at this place simultaneously. Much shipping suffered along the coast; and, in this harbor, among other slight damages, the schooners Edwin of Sullivan,.and Richmond of this port, went ashore and were wrecked or burnt. The schooner Henry Franklin of this place, loaded with moulding sand, was lost on Race Point with all on board except the Captain, Samuel Thomas, who succeeded with great difficulty in reaching the shore through the surf. Those

Page  21 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 21 who perished were Nathan A. Saunders, mate, and his father, both of Rockland, and Charles Merrill of Augusta. 1854. An Act to incorporate the town of Rockland into a city, was passed by the Legislature at its session of 1854, subject to a vote of the inhabitants, accepting or rejecting the same. This was decided at a town meeting duly called on the 3d of June, by the following vote; for accepting, 238; against, 110; and the event was greeted in the evening by martial music of the brass band, through the streets, ringing of bells, firing of cannon, sending up of rockets and Roman candles, a huge bonfire of tar-barrels, and other demonstrations of joy. In the course of two or three weeks the selectmen proceeded to divide the city, by specific boundaries, into seven wards, preparatory to an election of city officers, which was made July 8th, 1854; handsome rooms were provided for the city council, in the Berry block; and the city of Rockland, with the Hon. Knott Crockett as its mayor, commenced its career, as the 8th city chartered in the State and the 5th in population. At the annual meeting in March, 1854, the town had voted that the selectmen cause a survey to be made of the town lines and all the different roads and streets, designate the latter by names and guide-boards, and produce a plan of the same; but, by a subsequent vote, this work was postponed till after the adoption of the city charter. Applications for building side-walks in many of these streets had been frequently made since the separation of the place from Thomaston, and usually referred to the selectmen; but, in 1853, $1000 had been appropriated for their construction. The North Bank of this city was incorporated March 20th of this year, with a capital of $50,000; and, in October, chose its directors and went into operation, with John Bird, president, and Stephen N. Hatch, cashier, both of whom still continue. This bank is located in the Crockett block, discounts on Monday, and pays at present an annual dividend of six per cent. to its 132 stockholders."; Of Patent or Improved Lime KIilns, a newly invented one, by Messrs. A. D. Nichols and Davis Tilson, was tried this year and promised to be valuable and important; another was introduced the following year by Hon. Chas. Crockett, which was thought to save fifty per cent. in the amount of fuel; and still another in 1857, patented by Mr. Abner Weeks, saving the time and expense of cooling and re-heating the kiln.

Snow, Esq., about 1857; upon which, we believe, no patent fee is paid by builders here. A new brick block was this year erected by Larkin Snow, on the corner of Main and Spring streets, containing a store in the first story, offices in the second, and the armory of the City Guards in the third; also, at the North End, the spacious Crockett blocck, by Charles Crockett, containing, among its apartments,' "the Granite Hall"; also, the Thorndike block of stores on the corner of Main and Sea streets. The Rockland Hotel Company, with a capital of $40,000, having been incorporated, March 30, 1852, organized the present year by choosing a body of directors; but we are not aware that anything further was done. The Rockland City Guards, a light infantry company, after instruction by Davis Tilson, graduate of West Point, and receiving from the State the requisite number of muskets, organized by choice of Col. H. G. Berry, captain, G. J. Burns, Jona. Spear, and A. S. Dyer, lieutenants, Win. H. Titcomb, orderly sergeant, and 0. J. Conant, ensign; and, attired in its handsome uniform' of blue and gold, was soon attracting general admiration. It was presented with a beautiful flag, May 8, 1855, by his Honor the Mayor, as was Capt. Berry, in Aug., 1855, with a silver pitcher and gold chain and plate attached, by members of the company. A week of extreme cold occurred between January 19th and 27th, the mercury in this city falling at sunrise, for the most part, below 10~ minus. On the 30th and 31st of March, fifteen inches of snow fell, and, followed by cold weather, made excellent sleighing. Dirigo Engine Company caused a fine flag-staff to be erected, May 1st; but the joy of the occasion and the day was interrupted by the fall of the shears used, which struck and seriously injured Frederic Sweetland. The company's contemplated ball was, in consequence, postponed, and a substantial token of sympathy in a handsome subscription tendered the sufferer Knott C., a little son of Isaac Simmons, was accidently drowned, July 29th, in Chickawauka Lake. On the 30th September, the schooner Ontario, Capt. H. G. Penniman, on her passage out from Boston to this port, went on to the ledge called the Devil's Back; where, after lying with bow and stern afloat three hours, she broke in two, precipitating the crew into the sea; all four of whom, including the mate, David Beals of this city, perished; the captain alone retaining his hold on the wreck

Page  23 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 23 till morning, when he was taken off by a passing fisherman. Among the lectures at Beethoven Hall, may be mentioned an attractive poem on "the past and present," by W. C. Williamson of Belfast, February 14th, repeated the 28th; and, on the week ending February 22, a series of lectures on "sympathy or no sympathy," on' civil liberty," and on "true greatness of soul," by Charles Lowell, Esq., a native of South Thomaston. A crowded audience also assembled, August 5th, to hear a lecture on temperance, from Hon. Neal Dow, the celebrated author of the Maine Law, which was followed by lectures againjt the same, August 12th, by S. Carey of Houlton, and L. D. Wilkinson of Saco. 1855. The storm of Jan. 19th, with a strong north-east gale and very high tides, swept disastrously over the whole shore border of the city, destroying property to the amount of $20,000, distributed among the owners of wharves, limesheds, kilns, wood, lime, and coal, as well as the Marine Railway company, whose entire works were swept away. The tide at Matinicus was three feet higher than ever known before; and buildings that had stood 40 years were carried away by its fury. "The first week in February was cold, the mercury falling to 160 minus, at one time, and the bay, on the 7th and 8th, freezing over as far out as Owl's Head; but the whole winter was nearly destitute of sleighing.'On March 14th, much damage was done by a storm to the shipping; two schooners were sunk or went to pieces at the wharves,- one, the Minerva, lime-loaded, went ashore at Ingraham's Point, as did also a sloop. Capt. John Hart of this place was so badly injured on board his vessel, that, after lingering about a fortnight and undergoing amputation, mortification set in and caused his death, March'25th,-leaving a wife and two young children. In a violent gale, April 2d, also, the brig Duncan, Capt. Isaac A. Porter, master, and Henry S. Verrill, mate, both of this place, from Philadelphia for Bath with coal, went. down with every soul on board, in sight of the schooner Elvijia, which lay by her four hours unable to render any aid, from the violence of the waves. The early spring was dry, but hay and most crops were good. In July the harbor swarmed with mackerel. The North Fire and Marine Insurance Company in Rockland was incorporated March 12th; but its principal mover, John Bird, having become interested in the Lime Rock Insurance Company, it never went into operation. Among the losses by fire this year was that of the steam-mill on Main

Page  24 24 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, street, before mentioned, on the evening of Oct. 25th, the owners losing about $12,000, while O. P. & J. Merriam, manufacturers of doors, sash and blinds, and in part occupants, lost $400,-none of the parties being insured. The fire originated near the boiler. As an additional means of safety against such occurrences, the mayor and aldermen made an arrangement with the Water Company by which twenty hydrants attached to the Company's pipes were put down in convenient places through the most compact portions of the city. A Watch was also appointed, for the nightly protection of the city; which has, more or less, been continued, through the winter ateast, in succeeding years. A Temperance Jubilee washeld in Crockett's block March 16th, when well spread tables did honor to the ladies who prepared the feast for a gratified and crowded assemblage, who listened to eloquent speeches from several gentlemen called out by the promptness and wit of the president, Freeman Harden, who, among other sentiments gave the following: "our worthy mayor; a hard knot for the tummies." A grand festival, procession, and collation at Granite Hall, was held, July 17th, on the meeting of the Grand Division of the S. of T. with the Lime Rock and Hyperion Divisions of. this city. By the energetic labors of David M. James, city marshal, violators of the law were prosecuted and liquor selling kept to a good degree in check, till " after the September election, when the flood-gates of intemperance were opened anew, more especially by the refusal of the Grand Jury to do their duty in sending for witnesses in cases of persons who had been tried in the Municipal Court; and, on clear and conclusive evidence, bound over for appearance at the October term of the Supreme Court.": On the 15th Jan. 1855, the City Council authorized the treasurer to procure by loan $10,000 to pay outstanding orders and town liabilities. This indebtedness of the city has, of course, increased since,-especially within the last few years, in consequence of soldiers' bounties, and other expenditures incident to a state of war; and a permanent loan of $30,000-has of late been effected at 5 per cent.,-all of which is taken by residents of the place. The entire indebtedness of thb city, was in 1863, about $60,000.t In a tax of seven mills'on a dollar this year (1855) assessed, 105 individuals paid over $50, forty-five paid over *Report of City Marshal, for 1855. t Mayor Wiggin's address of March, 1863

Page  25 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 25 $100, and three over $500; whilst the number of those paying $20 and upwards was very large. Ship-building, which was very flourishing this year, by the high wages it offered, drew off many workmen from other pursuits and somewhat lessened the lime product, which was still further decreased by the high prices of provisions, dulness of trade, and the want of building in New York. New buildings, however, still went up in this city. The Thorndike hotel, built the past year of brick, covered with mastic cement, three stories in front and four in the rear, extending 80'feet on Main and 60 on Sea streets, with ample accommodations for a first class hotel, and several stores on the first floor, was opened, May 8th, by Capt. Wm. H. Thorndike, proprietor. The hotel kept by J. C. Merrill before mentioned, which had taken the name of its predecessor, the Commercial House, was also this year enlarged by an additional wing of eight suits of rooms, and put in first rate condition. Both houses, were, it is believed, well patronized by the large number of steamboat travellers and the public generally. The new, beautiful, and well-appointed schooner Greyhound, in August commenced running as a regular packet between this place and Vinalhaven. The North Marine Railway was this year constructed, being commenced in June and completed by December, at a cost of $11,000, and fitted to receive ships of 1400 tons. The company was incorporated the following winter, with a capital of $75,000. The first Savings Bankc, incorporated February 28, 1855, consisted of Chas. W. Snow and 27 others, principal citizens of the place, who met April 13th; and, after voting in eight new members, accepted the charter and chose a committee on by-laws. The beneficent institution, however, seems never to have gone into operation; and a second pne, incorporated in 1861, in which Mr. Titcomb was principal mover, shared a like fate in consequence of the supervening troubles growing out of the rebellion. A new volunteer militia company was this year organized by the name of the Mechanic's Rifle company, whose uniform was gold-laced black velvet caps and grey clothes trimmed with black. Its first officers were E. C. Spalding, captain, succeeded before the close of the year by Joseph Farwell; with Samuel J. Erskine and Gilbert Perry, lieutenants. In November, a new weekly paper, the UNITED STATES DEMOCRAT, with 150 subscribers, was commenced in this city by A. & E. Sprague, printers and publishers. It was of good appearance, ably conducted, and warmly devoted to the support of the Democratic party. After a time, March, 1858, VOL. II. 3

Page  26 26 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, its subscription list, having increased to about 1000, was further swollen by the transfer to it of about 800 more from the MAINE FREE PRESS, a paper which had been established at Belfast in support of Pierce's administration. After this, it took the name of the DEMOCRAT AND FREE PRESS; is now devoted to the cause of the Union and Freedom; and has a circulation of about 1400. The Youth's Educational Union, in default of other effort, this year engaged public lecturers, and devoted the proceeds to the benefit of its library. These were Capt. Stehendsohn, a Hungarian exile; Rev. I. S. Kalloch, Feb. 13th, and again Jan. 10th; J. G. Saxe, on "the money-king," Aug. 9th; Rev. Jas. Belcher of Oldtown, on "the bible in our common schools," April 13th; Mrs. E. Oakes Smith, on "woman and the times," a poem, Nov. 27th, and "the dignity of labor," Nov. 28th; and Rev. J. O. Skinner, on "the unity of the human race," Dec. 27th. 1856. There was a severe storm Jan. 13th, in which the roads were so blocked up that the western mails did not reach here till the 16th. A similar interruption occurred from Feb. 17th to the 20th. On the extremely cold night of Jan. 28th, a fire destroyed the wooden blocks of G. W. Palmer and Wm. Wilson, on Main street, each valued at $2000 and insured for $1500. The principal sufferers were, E. R. Spear, bookseller, F. G. Cook, druggist, Thos. Wiggin, shoe dealer, C. N. Germaine, physician, E. A. Mansfield, H. P. Wood & Son, hardware, C. G. Moffit, clothing, and N. A. & S. H. Burpee, furniture dealers. January was remarkable for being entirely destitute of its usual thaw. The whole winter is memorable for its immense depth of snow, enormous drifts, and uneven roads, over which passing sleighs rose and plunged like ships in a stormy sea. The fine sunny weather of March and April, upon the great body of snow, produced, especially in this city, bad travelling and some stage accidents. April 4th, the two story house of John Porter (2d), at the extreme South End, took fire, from some unknown cause, at two in the morning, and, the state of the streets preventing the engines getting fo it, was totally consumed. Loss $1800, insured $1500. A sound resembling the explosion of a powder mill, was, at 9 A. M., of April 11th, distinctly heard in this city, and more especially at Belfast, where it shook the houses, and was supposed to be caused by a meteor falling south of that place. There was some hot weather June 22d, when the mercury stood at 990 here; and again in July, followed by dense fogs and bad hay weather. Mackerel were abundant

Page  27 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 27 in the harbor and caught from the wharves. A small twostory building owned by Pendleton & Howes, occupied as a variety store;by Joseph Farnham, on North Main street, was burned at two o'clock in the morning of December 2d; valued, building $575, insured, $375, and stock at $500, not insured. The 18th December was severely cold; the mercury being 14~ minus at sunrise, in this city. During the violent gale which accompanied this severe cold, the schooner Belcher struck on Race Point, and, but for the almost superhuman exertions of the mate, A. T. Spear of this city, who cut off his frozen overcoat with a hatchet, and succeeded in reaching the shore with a line, all on board had perished. About the same time, the schooner Excelsior of this city was lost on her passage from Aux Cayes to New York, together with her captain, Alfred Babbidge, Jr., his wife, his brother, his sister, and his child. The business of the place was this year rather inactive, both in commerce and manufactures, especially ship-building. Many private residences, some of them elegant, were erected, and two or three brick blocks; one by the Berrys, on the corner of Main and Lime Rock streets; and one by Wilson and White, north of the Thorndike hotel on Main street, containing Phcenix Hall. A new steam mill was also constructed on the corner of Main and Willow streets, at a cost of $5000, and owned by K. Crockett, F. Harrington, G. A. Stevens and I. Gregory. The wooden block of Palmer and Wilson was rebuilt, and a new one, also, by Richard Walker, opposite the Spear block, at the raising of which the owner was severely injured by a fall of part of the frame. The Palmer & Wilson block has been since, in June, 1862, again burnt, and again immediately rebuilt in a handsome manner, three stories high, containing four stores, and owned by Wood & Sons, C. G. Moffit and Dr. Frye. A petition in favor of setting off the 7th ward, which contains all the rural portion and about two-thirds of the whole territory of the city, into a new town, and remonstrances against the same, were got up and presented to the Legislature in Feb., 1856, but resulted in the petitioners having leave to withdraw. The outrage upon free speech in the person of Senator Sumner, called out in this city, May 31st, a large meeting of citizens in Beethoven Hall, without respect to sect or party, who unanimously passed strong resolutions of condemnation. This, with the recent events in Kansas,-' * Among the first to respond to the call to save this territory to freedom

Page  28 28 H-ISTORY OF THOMASTON, fanned the flames of opposition to the party in power, and, the new Republican party being formed, gave unusual spirit to the elections here as elsewhere. Beautiful flags, bearing the names of the opposing candidates, were suspended across Main street, from the Kimball block, and many mass meetings were held. This spirit, however, did not prevent a harmonious celebration of the Fourth of July. A long procession of S. S. scholars, truckmen, military companies, fire companies of this city and Thomaston; the beautiful ship Independence, manned and officered, drawn by four horses; the car of beauty containing 31 young ladies, representing the several States; &c., marshalled by J. T. Berry, moved to the Lindsey grove, where prayer was offered by Mr. Fessenden, and " America" by the children, the declaration by T. S. Osgood, ode on freedom by the Antiquarian choir, and an oration by I. S. Kalloch, then of Boston, with music by the brass band, were listened to; the whole closing with dinner provided by C. A. Harrington in a pavilion near, the ringing of bells, a salute of 31 guns, and fine display of fireworks. From 8000 to 10,000 people were estimated to be present on the grounds. On the 16th and 17th September, the 1st regiment of the 2d brigade and 4th division of the volunteer militia of the State, was mustered for camp duty in this city, under Col. Burns; consisting of nine well drilled companies, with three brass bands, including that attending the Portland Rifle guards, who were invited guests; and, after drill the first day, was, on the 17th, reviewed by Maj. Gen. Cochran, and Adj. Gen. Atwood, - viewed by thousands of spectators. A Teachers' Association or lyceum, comprising a large portion of the male and female instructers of the place, was organized in December for weekly discussions, essays, &c., on subjects connected with their vocation. Under its auspices,. lectures were delivered Jan. 31, 1857, by Rev. N. Butler, on " the anglo-saxon race;" Feb. 20th, by Rev. J. O. Skinner, on "common schools;" and, March 13th, by Rev. F. Wallace, on "John Knox." 1857. In the severe gales prevailing in January, much shipping was destroyed; among others, the schooners John was Dr. John W. Robinson of this city, who received a medical degree at Bowdoin in 1849, and came from Richmond here, where he practised medicine and was surgeon of the State Prison' In Kansas his services were highly appreciated, and he was chosen its first Secretary of State. O0 the breaking out of the rebellion, he left his new and happy home, be, came surgeon of the 2d Kansas Cavalry, and, after more than a year'., faithful service, died Dec. 10, 1863.

Page  29 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 29 B. and Sam'l Rankin of this city; and among the sad losses of life, was that of James P. Haskell, lost overboard, together with the mate, from the barque Tidal Wave, Jan. 19th. On the 5th Jan. fire was discovered in.the Crockett block, but soon extinguished; the chief damage being to the millinery goods of Miss F. Kirkpatrick & Co.,-$314, with no insurance. The barn and shed connected with the house of Dr. J. E. Hunt, corner of Union and Grace streets, were totally consumed and the house considerably damaged by fire, on the night of March 12th, together with a fine horse owned by F. Case. On the 24th of March, John L. Craig, a lad of 15 years, and the only son of his parents, was accidentally shot by a gun which another boy was loading, and the iron ramrod driven through his right eye and passing out some four inches beyond the back part of the head. He died five days afterwards. On June 13th, by a premature explosion of powder in Munroe's quarry, south of the head of Pleasant street, John Murray, a native of Ireland, was so badly injured as to lose one hand. This was followed, July 25th, by a more fatal occurrence in Ulmer's quarry. Reuben T. Jacobs, 27 years of age, had ignited the fuse of a charge, and, after waiting long and supposing it gone out, returned to relight it, when it exploded and so shattered one of his legs as to render amputation necessary, from the effects of which he died the next morning. Sept. 12th, a wooden block of four tenements, belonging to Rufus Carll, on Warren street, was nearly destroyed by fire. Insurance $2300. In the store of Bills & True, North Main street, their shoe stock was damaged by fire, Nov. 29th, about $400. A daring attempt to break open and rob the Lime Rock Bank, at the corner of Main and Summer streets, was made on the night of May 19th, the miscreants entering through a back window and trying, by means of an iron bar, a sledge, and gunpowder, to wrench the locks from the iron door of the specie vault. But, after succeeding with the two lower locks, the upper one resisted their.efforts; and, from some alarm or the approach of daylight, theydecamped, leaving their tools, and the old bags which they had hung at the windows. Much disorderly conduct, and several cases of assault, and even stabbing, perpetrated in the summer and autumn of this year, gave sufficient evidence of an inefficient police system and the non-execution of the liquor law, complained of at this time. The 4th of July was celebrated not by a formal oration and dinner, but by the usual procession, with prayer by Rev. 3*

Page  30 30 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, WVm. H. Littlefield, speeches from Revs. N. Butler, and J. 0. Skinner, the declaration by Rev. S. C. Fessenden, interspersed with music from the Thomaston Cornet, Rockland, and Camden bands, in front of the Congregational Church; and, in the afternoon, by the less elevating exercises of a trotting match and a foot-race on Jameson's Point; the latter performed by a Penobscot Indian, 5 miles in 29 minutes 24 seconds. A pleasing union pic-nic celebration of the Congregational, 1st Baptist, and Universalist sabbath schools, was held in Lindsey Grove, September 10th. The Young Men's Forensic Union, for debating and literary improvement, organized the preceding December 18th, also provided a course of free lectures; viz.: March 26, 1857, on " the true education " by T. K. Osgood; April 16th, on " success in life" by Rev. A. Church; and, besides private lectures by their own members, aided by the sale of tickets, procured, November 10th, the reading of the poem "Yankee land," by J. G. Saxe; lecture on " the physiology of nations" by Elihu Burrett, November 17th; "bibliography," by I. Sawyer, December 17th; "cemeteries and epitaphs" by I. S. Kalloch, January 6, 1858; " compensated emancipation," by E. Burritt, March 12th; and closing the season, March 18ih and 19th, with an unusually gratifying exhibition of home talents in music, declamation, original poetry, and the dramatic art. A loss befel'the city, this autumn, in the death of Hon. Knott Crockett; who, from an orphan boy, gradually rose by his industry, honesty, gentle demeanor, liberality, and good judgment, to the first rank among his fellow citizens. Though only sixty-five years of age, he remembered the city when it consisted only of woodlands and fields of grass and grain. Here, at the age of 15, he began his humble labors by teaching, farming, and burning lime in the little old-fashioned kiln of less than 100 casks, hauling his rock and wood himself with a single horse, maintaining the family of his deceased father, and freeing the-estate from its encumbrances. In 1817, at the age of 25, having acquired a little capital, he commenced trade in a store at the corner of Main and Lime Rock streets, where the Berry block now stands; in 1838 took into partnership Wm. Thomas, afterwards a prominent and influential citizen; and, after a course of uniform success, withdrew from mercantile business in 1841. He was, as before stated, the first president of the first bank established in the city, the first Mayor of the city, and among the first in almost every plan to promote its prosperity. In 1856, he

Page  31 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 31 was chosen one of the Presidential electors, voting for J. C. Fremont. After disposing of his ample property in legacies to relatives and friends, he devised to Lime Rock Bank, over whose doings he had presided for 21 years, the sum of $5000-partly in acknowledgment of the confidence reposed in him, and partly to cover any possible loss the institution might sustain from his natural leniency and accommodating disposition towards its debtors. 1858., The winter was unusually mild, with bare ground; and robins were heard, Jan. 28th, singing in the gardens of the city. But after the 11th February, snow, sleighing, and cold weather prevailed. On Feb. 20th, the dwelling on Pleasant street, owned and occupied by Wm. Haskell, was wholly consumed by fire from a cause not ascertained; loss about $2500. On the afternoon of June 5th, the building known as the old steam mill, situated between the South Point kilns and the Atlantic wharf, was destroyed by fire. It was owned by Sam'l Pillsbury, had been erected by Capt. Lemuel Andrews, 12 or 15 years before, and had never been a good investment. The house of Capt. Robt. Wheeler was much injured by fire on the afternoon of June 30th, and on the night of July 3d the bake-house of Ephraim Perkins was entirely consumed. On the 30th of June, 1858, the schooner Laura Frances, Capt. H. W. Bullock of this city, while on her passage from Salem, was struck by a sudden squall off Cape Elizabeth, thrown upon her beam ends and soon after, by a lurch of the sea, bottom up. The boat, which had broken from the davits and was floating loose full of water, was reached by the captain and two of his men, Edward Cobb, Jr. and Albion K. P. Duncan, where they remained till the two last successively expired in the arms of the captain. The only other person on board, a Scotchman, whose name we have not learned, was drowned; and the captain was taken off at half past eight the next morning by a passing vessel. Nov. 17th, a twostory building at the Brook, occupied as a joiner's shop and store for sash and blinds, by Messrs. Hemenway and Jones, was totally consumed; loss $1700; insured $1000. A number of new hydrants were this year put down by the city authorities. In removing the staging of the barque Orraville, Nov. 2d, R. Trowbridge, master builder, narrowly escaped death; being precipitated from it more than 26 feet. A commodious block, at the corner of Main and Sea streets, was this year erected by Henry and Bernard Ulmer, the whole upper portion consisting of a fine hall, called the Ul

Page  32 32 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, mer Hall; also a block of stores, built on Lime Rock street, by O. H. Perry. A series of temperance meetings in the autumn of this year, was commenced with a view of preparing the public mind for the prompt and vigorous execution of the liquor law, now permanently established by a vote of the people of the State. These were largely attended and addressed by most of the leading men of the city; continuing with much spirit through the winter, and into 1859, when the Lime, Rock Div. Sons of Temperance, which had suspended its meetings in 1856, was again revived, and has since continued its efforts in the good cause with renovated vigor. The death of Oliver Fales, a quiet, honest and honored citizen, long regarded as one of the fathers of the business and society of the place, respected by all, beloved by many, through a long life of eighty years, took place on the 10th of December. " To do good, to be and not to seem, was the religion of his heart as of his daily life."' A Roman Catholic Church which had been in process of building since autumn, was this year completed on Park street; being a handsome edifice, with tower and spire, and costing about $5000. It was named St. David's church, and dedicated Aug. 1st, by Rev. Andrew Barron, who was, the preceding summer, appointed to the office of priest, the first in the vicinity, and who wis at this time doing a good work among the people of his charge. These still remain under his care. Not far from the same time also, a new diocese was formed and the Bishop of Portland appointed,his jurisdiction extending to those of the Catholic faith in this vicinity, who were formerly under that of the Bishop of Boston. The city having at the preceding session of the Legislature been made a half shire town of Lincoln county, Phoenix Hall was prepared by the city government as a Court room; and was first occupied by the Supreme Judicial Court, which opened its session, Jan. 25, 1859. The excellent Rockland Band had, this year, a stand erected in a vacant lot opposite the head of Sea street, and held a series of out-door concerts, weekly, on fine evenings through the summer. National Independence was celebrated July 5th in this city; the principal features being the fantastics from Ward 7; orafion by Rev. I. S. Kalloch; reading of the Declaration by L. G. Howes, Esq., now established here * Obituary notice in Rockland Gazette.

Page  33 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 33 as a lawyer; a procession of military, firemen, civic authorities, &c., to Lindsey grove; after which the two Fire companies with their invited guests dined, the one at the Commercial House, and the other in a tent near the Rockland Exchange at the North End. A silver trumpet was presented earlier in the day to the Dirigo Engine Company, in behalf of citizens, by T. K. Osgood; who was fittingly responded to by foreman E. Walker. 1859. In January, the MAINE SPECTATOR, a weekly literary paper for youth and the home circle, was commenced, and conducted in such a manner, through the taste and talent of its accomplished editor, Z. Pope Vose, that it gave promise of much usefulness to the community; but it was discontinued at the end of six months. The Young Ladies' Aid Society, for the benefit of the destitute, held an entertaining levee of tableaux and other entertainments, Feb. 21st, the receipts of which amounted to seventy-five dollars. The first annual public meeting of the Rocdkand Bible Sockcty, which was formed by a union of all the protestant churches of the city, was held Feb. 27th, and, having purchased bibles and testaments to the amount of $200, measures were taken to supply, by sale or gift, every family destitute of a bible. On the breaking out of the rebellion and the mustering of a regiment of volunteers in this place, this society presented, by the hands of Rev. Jos. Kalloch, a neat copy of the Testament and Psalms to each of the soldiers. Among the various temperance associations of the city, the Rockland Band of Hope was organized, which, at its third meeting, June 11th, numbered 580 youths of both sexes. These, on the 4th of July, held a grand pic-nic celebration, when, after the usual ushering in of the morning and the public presentation of a silver trumpet to the Defiance Engine company by Rev. Jos. Kalloch, the children, numbering about 700, after appropriate exercises in the Methodist church, marched in four divisions, with banners and appropriate mottoes, escorted by the Juvenile Fire King Engine Company, through the principal streets to Lindsey grove, where tables 450 feet in length, enclosing a circular area, were bountifully spread and enjoyed by the happy company. The ladies of the Episcopal church, also, on the same day held a successful strawberry festival in the same grove. A new brick block, with an iron front to the first story and a French roof, was this year erected by Samuel Pillsbury, at the corner of Main and School streets; containing three large

Page  34 34 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, stores below, offices on the second story, a large hall on the third, and several rooms on the fourth. But from the commercial embarrassments of the country and the falling off of business here, the value of real and personal estate owned in the city had suffered a decline since 1857; when, by the assessors' cash valuation, it exceeded $3,000,000. The lime this year manufactured, amounted to about 815,000 casks. By fires, May 26th and June 1st, the houses of David Kidd and William Flagg were nearly destroyed; both on North Main street; and, August 17th, the house owned and occupied by John Knights and widow Seavey, was nearly consumed, and the barn, with its contents, wholly so,-the flames also communicating to and damaging the house of J. S. Kenniston. On the 21st of July, James Toner and James Latta, employed in Thurston's iron foundry, at the North End, lost their lives by the upsetting of a sloop-rigged sailboat, laden with 500 lbs. pig iron and two or three bags of sand, which, being struck with a squall, two miles from Camden harbor, immediately filled and went down. Sunday morning, December 18th, the vestry of the Congregational church was damaged by fire to the amount of $500; followed, two days later, by a more destructive and fatal occurrence. A fire, on the evening of the 20th, broke out in the Commercial House, on the second floor, which, after an ineffectual attempt to subdue, without alarming the inmates, spread so rapidly between ceiling and floors through the building, that though the engines speedily arrived and were well served, they failed to extinguish the flames till the main building was wholly destroyed, with most of its furniure and the wearing apparel and other effects of its boarders. By the great exertions of both the engine companies, together with the damp snow and rain that was falling at the time and covered the adjoining wooden buildings, the flames were arrested without spreading further;the Beals Hall even, though connected with the hotel, being saved. This hotel was owned by Horace Beals of New York, and kept by S. G. Dennis, both of whom were losers; $5000 only being insured on the house, and $3800 on its contents. But the most mournful part of this catastrophe was the accident which befel three brave and active young men of this place, members of Dirigo Engine Company. James F. Sears, Edward Love, and James B. Ulmer, had erected a ladder against the building and carried up their hose to the eaves to pour a stream of water on the burning roof. While the first held the pipe at the eaves and the others were below him on

Page  35 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 35 the ladder almost in the midst of the flames, the heavy chimney was observed to totter, a shriek of alarm rose from the crowd, the victims looked up, and in a moment the whole upper mass breaking off just below the roof, fell upon them, broke the ladder, and precipitated all to the ground. They were immediately extricated from the ruins in a crushed and mangled condition; Sears, in a state of unconsciousness, died in the course of an hour; and Love' was so badly injured that his life was for a time despaired of, though he finally recovered, and was able to be out in March, when $250 were voted him by the city council. Ulmer, whose external injuries were greater than those of either, recovered sooner, went to sea, and, strange to say, met his death by a fall from aloft a year later. Much sympathy was felt for the sufferers, and the death of young Sears greatly lamented, particularly by the Fire companies, who, on the following Sabbath, Jan. 1, 1860, crowded the 1st Baptist church to listen to the funeral discourse pronounced by Rev. Jos. Kalloch, from the text, " for I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us." Among other valued matters destroyed in this fire, was a highly prized relic of the Knox mansion, in the form of a large American eagle beautifully carved in wood, originally surmounting the General's arched gateway at the approach to the mansion through the lane, now Knox street, and which, after the transfer of the property and the changes incident to its passing into the hands of strangers, was brought to this city and placed above a dormer window on the roof of the Commercial House. So perish alike the gains of industry and the adornments of renown! On the 1st August there was a slight shock of an earthquake felt in this city about 9 o'clock, P. M. On the evening of August 14th a lunar rainbow was observed by many in the place; and, on the 1st and 2d of September, the most brilliant exhibitions ever witnessed here of the aurora borealis, with varied colors and ever changing coruscations. The project, in 1858, of forming a new county with Camden for its shire town, not having succeeded, a movement was this year made for the same purpose, but with this city for the seat of justice. This was deemed of so much importance to the public at large, and to this city in particular, that, in compliance with a unanimous recommendation of a citizens' meeting, called for the purpose, Dec. 12th, the city council appropriated $500 to further it. The measure was prosecuted with zeal; was adopted by the Legislature; and the new

Page  36 36 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, County of Knox commenced its judicial corporate existence; its several officers being appointed by the Governor, March 21, 1860, and its first court held here on the 8th of May. Thus this place, with the rest of old Thomaston, after peaceably abiding in the county of Lincoln just 100 years, found itself embarked on a new bottom and sailing under the new and. justly honored name of Knox. 1860. On the 10th February, a small house on Gay street, owned by T. Lane and occupied by Herm'y Corson, was destroyed by fire. A woman named Mary Curtis, employed as a cook in the Thorndike Hotel, was found on Monday morning, February 20th, in the rear of Eli Sprague's blacksmith shop, at the foot of Winter street, frozen to death while in a state of intoxication. On the morning of June. 1st, a double one-and-a-half story house on Masonic street, owned and occupied by S. M'Cann and a Mrs. Crawford, was consumed by fire, supposed to be set by an incendiary. Another fire on the same street and, from the same cause, took place two days after, at nearly the same hour, 2 A. M. by which a two story house, with new porch and stable, belonging to Walter J. Wood, was totally consumed, with. the furniture, besides joiner's tools worth nearly $500. Insurance on buildings, $1200. These, and other less successful attempts at arson, induced the mayor to offer $100 for the detection of any perpetrator of that crime in the city. On Sunday, September 9th, a fire broke out in the range of large sheds connected with the five patent kilns known as the Haskell privilege, destroying sheds, lime, wood, and casks, and injuring kilns to the amount of $10,000 or $12,000. The principal losers were Messrs. F. Cobb, Wim. McLoon, Wm. O. Fuller, and the firm of Spalding & Haskell, all uninsured. A similar fire took place at the North End, Jan. 26, 1862, in the lime sheds of Messrs. Bird, Fales, Crockett, and Dean, occasioned by contact of water with lime in a storm, by which $3000 worth of property was lost. Other losses by fire have taken place in the last two years, especially in 1862, when incendiarism prevailed to some extent; and Rockland, on the whole, has usually been largely a sufferer from fire. From her Chief Engineer's reports, which are before me with exception of those of 1859 and 1860, it appears that the losses from this cause, for the year ending March, 1856, were $24,463, insurance, $8,778; ditto, 1857, $3,389, insurance, $2,219; 1858, $5,700, insurance not given; 1861, $12,075, insurance, $1,865; 1862, $5,230, insurance, $1,040; and 1863, $17,940, insurance.$8,500.

Page  37 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 37 On Sept. 8th, as Amos Thompson and his wife, the wife of Dr. Zenas Colby, the wife of Chas. Hopkins, and Miss Mary Jameson, all of this city, were returning by water from a camp-meeting in Northport, the boat, when off Camden harbor, was capsized; and three of the party, Mrs Colby, Mrs. Hopkins, and Miss Jameson, were drowned. Mrs. Thompson was much bruised and exhausted, but was rescued with her husband, and the body of Mrs. Colby recovered, by the crew of a schooner under way in the harbor. The bodies of Mrs. Hopkins and Miss Jameson were recovered, the former Oct. 1st, and the latter about a week after, washed ashore on one of the Muscle Ridge Islands. In February a new periodical was started by Z. Pope Vose, editor and proprietor, denominated the YOUTH's TEMPERANCE VISITOR, a monthly quarto, devoted to the temperance culture of the young, everywhere. It was published in this city at the office of the Gazette, of which also Mr. Vose was now the editor, and proved a valuable auxiliary to the cause it advocated. In consequence of the disturbed state of the times, it was discontinued in July, 1861, but is again revived and flourishing. A new temperance association was organized on the 3d Dec., 1860, under the name of the Rockland Temperance League, which embracing, as it did, a large proportion of the active, leading, and respectable citizens, bade fair to free the city from the intemperance which had again insinuated itself into the community by means of the ale and beer traffic. But from the supervening war and its excitements, these efforts were probably relaxed; and it seemed to be a generally acknowledged fact that intemperance had again come in like a flood upon our people, insomuch that the City Marshal of Rockland was obliged to say in his report of March 1, 1863, that "there has never been a time when rum held such complete sway as at present." This state of things, however, has been greatly modified in 1864 by a rigid and faithful execution of the law on the part of the grand jury and prosecuting officer of the county. Notwithstanding the increased attention paid to education for some years past, the city has not yet succeeded in bringing its schools under any entire, complete, and permanent system, adequate to the wants and ability of the population. In the thickly settled portion of the city the grade system, working its way through many difficulties, has at length been satisfactorily adopted; and one high school, six grammar schools, two intermediate, and nine primary schools have been provided. In the suburban portion of the city, consist7oi,. II. 4

Page  38 38 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, ing of six school districts, the old system has been continued. The war has drawn heavily upon the corps of High School teachers employed here since 1859;-of whom, Ellis Spear is now Lieut. Colonel, Nath'l A. Robbins, lieutenant, T. K. Osgood, paymaster, E. T. Chapman, paymaster in the navy, and A. J. Pickard, lieutenant of cavalry; all of whom have found more lucrative employment, some of them wounds, one a prison, and one a grave, in the public service. In the troubles that have succeeded 1860, but little change has taken place in the condition of the schools, though the city rose in the scale of liberality towards them, from the 89th town or city in the State in 1860, to the 23d in 1861. Som6 increase of business was this year manifested; especially in the manufacture of lime, which amounted to 899,460 casks. There were, at this time, 35 patent kilns in operation; and about one-fourth of the above amount was manufactured in those of F. Cobb & Co. But, as the census of 1860 gives a very meagre and manifestly imperfect return of this manufacture, we substitute an account of it in the year 1863, when partially recovering from the great depression occasioned by the rebellion and the loss of the Southern market. In that year the principal manufacturers were F. Cobb, who burnt 46,777 casks; Cobb, Wight & Case, 25,238; Cobb & Colson, 900; Jona. White, 27,197; J. Bird & Co., 25,062; C. W. Snow, 24,779; W. A. Farnsworth, 24,181; John J. Perry, 23,486; J. H. Wheeler & Co., 22,588; A. J. Bird,19,792; Albert F. Ames, 21,260; D. C. Haskell & Co., 19,115; William Wilson & Co., 29,386; C. R. Whitney, 19,095; Calvin Hall, 18,226; Joseph Spear, 16,001; G. L. Snow, 13,807; S. Gould, 11,038; Cornelius Henrahan, 23,518; Thos. Lothrop, 10,877; Sumner Whitney, 18,007; J. W. Hunt, 11,159; R. P. Thomas, 8,909; Thos. Walsh & Co., 7,531; John Hall, 6,015; B. Clark, 9,352; Bowler & Abbott, 6,768; J. S. Wheeler, 9,084; Jona. Spear & Co., 3,388; R. Sherer, 2000; Henry Howard, 7,263; and 0. Sherer, 347; making a total of 527,193 casks. The 8th annual Cattle-show and Fair of the Lincoln Co. Agricultural and Horticultural Society was held here on the 2d, 3d, 4th and 5th days of October. The live stock was exhibited on the grounds prepared for the purpose on Lime Rock street, and the other articles in the hall and adjoining rooms of the Pillsbury block. Few animals were brought on, till the second day; when a ploughing-match and procession took place, the streets were crowded with people, the receipts of the society were large, and the Fair altogether successful.

Page  39 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 39 The two. last days, however, proved rainy, and in consequence, the address by T. K. Osgood, and the equestrian exercises were deferred. The.ox-teams of this city have usually been the most distinguished of any in these Fairs. In agriculture, the census enumerates in Rockland, 47 farms, cash value $200,000; value of farming implements, &c., $4,730; live stock, $17,757; animals slaughtered, $3,323; products of market garden, $1,733; orchard, $295; hay, 1,034 tons; butter, 19,075 lbs.; cheese, 1,700 lbs.; wool, 220 lbs.; and wine, 40 gallons; besides what will appear in the valuation, Table II. It appears by the returns furnished the Maine Board of Agriculture, 1863, that Rockland exceeds every,town of the county, in the number of its horses, viz.: 393, and in beets raised, viz.: 1582 bushels. The year 1860 is chiefly memorable for the animated and exciting efforts of the different political parties, the imposing mass meetings, the picturesque array and torch-light processions of the Wide Awakes, and the eloquent harangues and addresses, ending in the triumphant election of Mr. Lincoln and the Republican candidates; in all which the people and parties of this city more or less largely participated. At ten o'clock on the evening of July 20th, the splendid meteor, seen all over the country as far south as Philadelphia, was observed in this city. It appeared here about a fourth of the size of a full moon in the N. W. quarter of the Heavens, passed horizontally round toward the E. at the height of about 200 or 250 with a uniform motion apparently slower than that of a.rocket, and when in the S. VW. divided into two equal portions, which passed on in the same direction near each other, and, emitting sparks the whole distance, disappeared in the S. E.- This, and a small comet in June, followed by another, more splendid, which appeared about the 4th of July in the succeeding year, while they added' to the fears of the timid and superstitious, who regarded them only as omens of approaching trouble, were viewed with delight by the admiring students of nature, and imparted to the Christian fresh confidence that the same unerring hand which guides these apparently lawless wanderers of the sky on their destined errands, will, and does, equally guide cities, States, and empires to the accomplishment of His wise and beneficent purposes. * Rockland papers of the day.

Page  40 40 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, CHAPTER II. MILITARY EVENTS AND ROCKLAND VOLUNTEERS. THE original intention of the compiler was to terminate this history with the year 1860; but the events, civil, military, and naval, since transpiring, have been of so interesting and thrilling a character and so largely participated in by the citizens of Rockland, that some account of those who so promptly volunteered their services and so heroically shed their blood in defence of law, liberty, and the Union, seems absolutely indispensable. The first note of preparation for the approaching conflict was sounded here on the 8th of Jan. 1861, when, by order of the Governor, a salute of 33 guns was given by Maj. Gen. Titcomb, in honor both of the battle of New Orleans and the occupation of Fort Sumter by the faithful Major Anderson; and when, April 17th, news arrived of the attack and capture of that fortress and the nation's flag desecrated by the infatuated rebels of Charleston, S. C.,:one burst of indignation arose from the whole population of the city. The national flag was soon floating from the rooms of the city government, was saluted by the "Star Spangled Banner" and other patriotic airs by the Rockland Band, and cheered by a crowd of assembled citizens. Deputy Collector Osgood displayed the stars and stripes from the Custom House, and, with a few solitary exceptions, one sentiment of fidelity to the Union pervaded the city. On the evening of the same day a citizens' meeting irrespective of party and of which the editors of both the Gazette and Democrat acted as secretaries, was held at Atlantic Hall, when eloquent speeches were made, and a series.of patriotic and government-sustaining resolutions adopted. A few days later, no less than 20 large and beautiful flags were raised in different parts of the city; numerous gatherings were held, and national salutes fired. On Tuesday, the 23d, another large citizens' meeting was held at the Court Room, at which the City Council was instructed to appropriate $10,000 for the support of the families of such as shall volunteer to serve in defence of the Government and Union; strong resolutions were passed; Stephen H. Chapman came forward as the first volunteer soldier, as such receiving the $20 premium offered by Capt. C. F. Hodgdon; and foreman Elijah Walker tendered 25 of his Dirigo Engine Company, as now ready to enlist against

Page  41 ROCKL&ND AND SOUTH, THOMASTON. 41 treason as they had done against fire. Soon after, Mrs. R. S. Mayhew, a valued teacher in the graded district, together with Miss Orissa A. Packard and Miss Jennie Grafton, tendered their services to the State to attend the Maine volunteers as nurses; and in less than a week three companies of volunteers, numbering many of the best young men as well as older and respected citizens, were filled and organized;under Captains E. Walker, O. J. Conant, and L. D. Carver. These, on Sunday, April 28th, attended divine services conducted by Rev. J. Mariner, in the open air at the foot of Lime Rock street. By the end of the first week in May, a fourth company was raised by Col. Geo. J. Burns, of which he was elected captain; and by May 16th, all these, followed by the other companies composing the 4th Maine Regiment, went into camp on Tilson's Hill. This was denominated Camp Knox, a name which they candied with them to the banks of the Potomac. The tents for this and the other Maine regiments were furnished on contract by Gen. Wn. S. Cochran, who employed in this city between 100 and 200 persons, and, as the reputation of his tents extended and further contracts were obtained, increased the number to nearly 500, mostly women and girls, continuing the business far into the winter, and using, a portion of the time, 8000 yards of duck, and turning out 100 tents per day. The $10,000 recommended, were appropriated by the city council to relieve the families of such volunteers as should give for the same purpose one half their bounty and $6 per month of their wages. To aid the city in this and other expenditures, Defiance Engine Company, as well as Dirigo Engine Company, now decimated by enlistments, relinquished all compensation for their services during the year; Cornelius Henrahan and a number of other citizens offered to labor gratuitously with their teams in repairing Pleasant, Park and Lime Rock streets; while the ladies assembled daily for six weeks, in numbers varying at times from 25 to 150, at Pillsbury hall, making up about 800 shirts, 400 havelocks, and nearly 2000 towels, for the regiment; 52 bed-sacks and pillow ticks with 75 yards of new cloth and large quantities of old into bandages for the hospital; together with a hold-all, and two handkerchiefs for each soldier of the Rockland companies, exclusively. These articles were, June 14th, publicly presented at Camp Knox, by J. Farwell, in behalf of the fair donors, a large number of whom were present; and his appropriate remarks were happily responded to by Capt. Carver of company D. On the 15th, the regiment in dress parade 4*

Page  42 42 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, was mustered in, reviewed, and addressed by Gov. Washburn, who pronounced it the best looking body of men Maine had vet sent to the service. On Sunday, the 16th, religious services, which had heretofore been conducted by most of the city clergy in rotation, were performed by Rev. Mr. Mitchell, of the Methodist church, after which, a presentation of swords, procured by subscription among the citizens, was made, with a stirring address by Mr. Osgood, to the commissioned officers of the four Rockland companies, responded to in an earnest and fitting manner by Capt. Walker of company B. And, on the 17th, the reveille sounded at four o'clock; at five the soldiers ate their last breakfast in the camp here; received a day's rations; struck and packed their.tents; and at nine, with a large white banner bearing the inscription " FROM THE HOME OF KNOX," took up their line of march down Middle street, and through Main street to Atlantic wharf, where the steamer Daniel Webster was waiting to receive them. At Main street they were joined by the Rockland band in full uniform, who volunteered to accompany them on to Washington; and, opposite the Kimball block, a halt was made, and a second banner bearing the motto and arms of the State, was presented the Colonel by Maj. Gen. Titcomb. The camp grounds, the streets, windows and avenues along the whole line of march, and especially the wharf, buildings, and shipping near the place of embarcation, were densely thronged with weeping friends, relatives, and interested spectators. Under a salute from the ship Alice Thorndike, the troops were all embarked, when an address was made by Maj. Gen. Titcomb to the assembled crowds, who gave " three times three hearty cheers to the Fourth Regiment, which were returned by the soldiers, —and the boat moved away, the band playing, handkerchiefs waving, hearts throbbing, and tears falling, as she bore our brave volunteers away to the soldier's work." The field officers of this regiment, which has ever been distinguished for its cleanliness and health, correct discipline, and bravery, were, at the time of leaving, as follows: Hiram G. Berry of this city, colonel; Thomas F. Marshall of Belfast, lieutenant colonel; F. S. Nickerson of Searsport, major; J. B. Greenhalgh of this city, adjutant; Stephen H. Chapman, ditto, sergeant major; Wm. A. Banks, ditto, acting surgeon; Elisha Hopkins, soon supplanted by S. C. Hunkins of Windham, assistant surgeon; Isaac C. Abbott of this city, quartermaster; J. H. Crowell of Winterport, quartermaster sergeant; Julius A. Clark, commissary sergeant;

This regiment, after arriving at Washington, spent the time in further improvement in drill and discipline at different places of encampment. At one of these, July 13th, the first rebel prisoners by Maine regiments, were taken by John Butler, Corporal Stevens, W. E. Crockett, and John McKeen -of Capt. Walker's company; and their weapons were distributed by Col. Berry among the captors. In the disheartening battle of Bull Run, July 21st, this.regiment (scarcely more than one short month from peaceful homes) took an active part, and was the last to leave the field - having in connection with the 2d Vermont, made a desperate charge up the hill, and, for half an hour after its lines were partially broken by retreating cavalry and the battle was lost, stood the fire of shot and shell till ordered to retreat; and then, with the rest of Howard's brigade, came in from Centreville to Alexandria, in good order, under command of its officers. Its loss was 23 killed, 24 wounded, and 42 missing. Among the killed, this city had to lament the loss of several valuable citizens. Sergt. Major Chapman, a man of literary and musical talents, whose letters published in the Gazette, giving an account of the journey to Washington and all the movements of the soldiers, were so much prized by their friends and the community, was the first of the regiment to lay down his life as he had been the first to enlist in the cause of his country. He was killed instantly by a rifle ball, soon after the regiment came under fire, - thus giving a noble answer to the question which appeared in his latest published letter, ritten just before the battle, " how can one better or more gloriously die, than for his country?" Asahel Towne, also, B. W. Fletcher, Wm. B. Foss, Dennis Canning, Jarvis B. Grant, and Sewall Hewett, all in various ways, contributed their lives to the great ransom paid for the Nation's integrity and freedom. Nathaniel B. Gowen, who had been an estimable member of the first Baptist church and an active teacher in its Sabbath school, and Jacob A. Sparhawk, were wounded and carried prisoners to Richmond, where they subsequently died. The various instances of individual bravery and daring, in this battle, as in the many that have followed, would fill volumes; but we have not space for them. Subsequent to the retreat, the Fourth returned to the station it had previously occupied at Bush Hill, south of the Potomac, and several changes took place among its officers.

Page  49 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 49 Lt. Col. Marshall being appointed colonel of the 7th Maine, his place was supplied by Major Nickerson, and that of the latter by Silas M. Fuller. Company H, having become reduced in consequence of a misunderstanding among the men in regard to the time of service enlisted for, was broken up, and the men, with some others in the regiment, transferred to the 38th New York, or distributed in other companies. It was, however, replaced in November by another, of new recruits under Capt. W. L. Pitcher of Bangor. Before -the close of the year, Capt. Walker of company B, became major; and, to the regret of the regiment, Col. Berry, its active, popular, and meritorious commander, left in March, 1862, on being promoted to the office of brigadier general. Major Walker relinquishing his place to Capt. Pitcher, succeeded as colonel, and Capt. Carver of company D, as lieut. colonel. The eagerness of this regiment for action was evinced in the fact that more than 100 of its men volunteered early in Feb., 1862, to join the gunboat fleet at Cairo; but only 30 fiom any one regiment were allowed to leave. On the 17th March it went to Old Point Comfort, thence to the plains beyond Hampton, and on the 4th April advanced towards Yorktown. In the operations of our army between Yorktown and Richmond, it was most frequently drawn upon for men to do special duties requiring marked heroism and despatch; and Gen. Heintzelman is reported to have said of it,' it could furnish a corps of brigadiers as good as any in the army." In the battle of Williamsburg, May 5, 1862, from the position assigned to it on the left flank which was not attacked, it did not materially suffer; yet its flag was the first the next morning to float over the abandoned defences of Williamsburg. Still, as many of Co. H had been transferred to the New York 38th regiment, which behaved so nobly and was so terribly cut up amidst the storm of deadly hail which assailed them, some of our Rockland boys suffered. At Seven Pines the regiment was engaged. At the battle of Fair Oaks, May 31st, it suffered but little; as, in the afternoon of the first day, Gen. Birney failed to bring the brigade into action; and, on the second day, though, under another commander, doing good execution on the enemy, it was protected by the railroad embankment which formed a breast-work from behind which the men poured a constant shower of bullets upon the foe whilst remaining in comparative safety themselves. Col. Walker stood in an exposed situation on the railroad, directing the'fire of his men, and, together with Lieut. Col. Carver and Maj. Pitcher, received honorable mention in Gen. Ward's VOL. It. 5

Page  50 50 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, official report. Two only of the Fourth were killed and seven wounded. On the 25th of June, the Fourth was engaged with the enemy in the afternoon and evening, holding a most difficult position in face of the rebel force through the night; on the 28th, it was detached from its brigade to build a bridge across Jordan's Ford in White Oak Swamp, where, the remainder of the brigade having joined them, they held back the enemy until the main force had crossed, when they joined the retreat as the extreme rear guard; and it bravely bore its part in the several succeeding battles which were fought before Richmond. At Charles City Cross Roads it was in action; and at Malvern Hill, July 1st, supported the artillery planted on the heights. Though often wonderfully and providentially preserved from exposure, it did not escape a share of the casualties; among which, at the latter place, Sergeant Cowing of this city, much respected and beloved, was killed instantly by a piece of shell. On the 4th of July the regiment reached the place of retreat, Harrison's Landing, completely exhausted. On the 15th of August it again left its encampment; and, in the various and severe engagements which, from August 27th to September 1st, attended McLellan's retreat from before Richmond, the Maine 4th bore itself in its usual faithful and energetic manner; -being thus spoken of in Gen. Kearney's report. " The staunch 4th Maine, under Walker and Carver, true men, of rare type, drove on through the stream of battle irresistibly." It suffered severely, though, -having at the second Bull Run seven killed, (among them Sergeant Achorn, Corporal Stevens and Charles Clark of this city,) thirty-three wounded and seven missing, and, at Chantilly, eight killed, fifty-four wounded and two missing. An exploit of two young men of this city, Orlando H. Brown and George H. Dunbar, may deserve mention. Being left behind with two other videttes; on the 30th, in the retreat toward Centreville, they succeeded in capturing a party of the enemy consisting of one assistant adjutant general, one lieut. of cavalry, one orderly and two negroes, with six horses and sets of horse equipments, all of which they brought into camp. After this, till December, the Fourth was actively employed at various important points along the Potomac, guarding the fords. In the battle of Fredericksburg, commencing Dec. 13, 1862, it is doubted if any regiment participating displayed more indomitable courage, or suffered a severer loss than did the Fourth Maine. In Ward's brigade and Birney's division,

Page  51 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 51 they made the first charge upon the rebels; and it was they who drove them back through a dense piece of woods on the right of where the division entered the engagement, through an open field and back of the embankment which there formed a part of the railroad. But as soon as they reached the rear of this embankment, the rebels who had been driven, fell flat on their faces, while others rose fresh in their rear and poured in so murderous a fire that our Maine boys were compelled to retreat; though their left nobly continued to hold the foe in check, till, being joined by their right, and the rebels driven back by Gen. Berry, who came with his brigade to their relief, they retired, bringing off many of their wounded or dying comrades. Of the 211 men which went into the fight, but 124 returned in safety; and of the 23 field and line officers, but five escaped uninjured. Of those belonging to this city, Avery L. Candage and John A. Kelloch, corporals, James M. Bragg, Moses D. Bartlett, and Samuel A. Wood, privates, were killed, falling, like their gallant Major Pitcher, "with breasts to the foe, doing their whole duty." At Chancellorsville, the Fourth "did good service to retrieve our position"; the desperate charge of Ward's brigade on the night of May 2d, 1863, costing its chief loss of 32 killed, wounded and missing,-only a few, comparatively, being wounded in the main battle on Sunday. None of those from this city were killed; but the whole regiment, as well as the people of Rockland and the community at large, were most deeply affected by the loss, in this battle, of its early commander,-the brave, exemplary, and eminently successful Major General Hiram G. Berry. After his promotion to the command of a brigade, he had, at the battle of Williamsburg, by a forced march through the rain and mud in double quick time, passing three other brigades on his way, arrived at a critical moment to the relief of the right wing of our army exhausted by a bloody conflict and about giving way, and, by a gallant and successful charge upon the fresh troops of Johnston, turned the scale of victory and won for himself and his brave command the highest honor. Thus having obtained the soubriquet of "the hero of Williamsburg," he again, at the battles of Fair Oaks, White Oak Swamp, Nelson's Farm, and Malvern Hill, managed his brigade with the same promptness, skill, and courage, rendering signal service at the right time and situation to prevent imminent disasters; so that on his return home, Aug. 6th, to recruit his health and recover from a slight wound and injuries occasioned by a fall from his wounded and plunging horse, Rockland was proud

Page  52 52 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, to give him, her favorite son, a public and very flattering reception. Mayor Wiggin's address of welcome on the occasion was appropriate, warm, and deeply affecting. On the 29th of January, his gallant services were rewarded by an appointment to the office of major general, in which capacity his services were equally appreciated. But the end'of his career was approaching. On Sunday morning, the 3d of May, while posted to the right of Chancellorsvile, Gen. Howard, whose division had been put to flight, rode up and said, " Gen. Berry, I am ruined!" Berry replied, " Oh no, General; I have a division that never was driven an inch; I will put them immediately into the breach and regain what you have lost."'Twas said,'twas done. He put himself at the head of his brave men, and, with an irresistible charge, they drove back the rebels at the point of the bayonet and retook the ground which had been lost. In the'temporary hush of battle that followed this successful onset, Gen. Berry directed Capt. Greenhalgh to ride to Hooker's headquarters, for orders as to whether he should hold his position or not. Then dismounting with the remainder of his staff, he walked a few rods to confer with Gen. Mott, the senior officer of his division, and, on his return, when but a short distance from where the members of his staff stood, was struck in the arm close to the shoulder by a rifle minnie ball, which passed downwards through his vitals, lodged in his hip, and killed him almost immediately. "I am dying," he murmured, "carry me to the rear;" and indicating by a feeble shake of the head to his inquiring aid that he had no particular wish to express, his spirit ascended to its reward. His body, after being greeted with an outburst of regret and sorrow from Gen. Hooker at the Chancellor house, was conveyed back to Falmouth. On the way, it was met by a squad of the Fourth regiment, who, learning that the body of their former commander was being carried by, desired to have it laid down, and each one of the brave fellows came forward, kissed the cold brow of the man they had loved and first followed into the battle field, and then silently and tearfully took their places in the ranks. The corpse, under the care of Capt. Greenhalgh, after being embalmed, and receiving the highest honors, civil, military, and masonic, at Washington and Portland, arrived in this city May 9th, in charge of the committee which had been sent on to Portland for that purpose. On the appearance of the steamer, minute guns were fired and the bells of the churches tolled, the flags of the shipping displayed at half mast, the stores

Page  53 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 53 and principal buildings in Main street draped in mourning. At the Atlantic wharf, with a brief address from its chairman, Joseph Farwell, Esq., the committee, which had been sent on to Portland, delivered over its precious charge to the committee in waiting as representatives of the city, in whose behalf a response was made by Hon. S. C. Fessenden; and the coffin in a hearse draped with national flags, attended by the guard of honor with reversed arms, and followed by the family of the deceased and a long train of citizens in carriages, was conveyed to the family residence. After lying in state there, in the full uniform of his rank, adorned with bouquets, and on his breast the Kearney badge, with the beautiful wreath of flowers offered by the President at Washington, until Thursday the 14th, the body, beneath a gloomy sky and the moaning of the ocean wind, was deposited with parental dust in the Achorn cemetery " at Blackington's Corner. The obsequies which preceded were performed in front of the house, from a platform on which were seated Gov. Coburn, Ex-Gov. Washburn, and other distinguished personages, and consisted of scripture readings by Rev. Mr. Hart, prayer and eulogy by Rev. N. Butler, benediction by Rev. Jos. Kalloch;. succeeded by the piocession, comprising the military and masonic bands, the Bangor and Rockland bands of music, military officers and guard of honor, and, following the funeral car, the General's three war horses, his family and relatives in carriages, his military staff, various official personages, guests and citizens, which moved down Lime Rock and iup Main and North Main streets to the cemetery, where the usual masonic and military ceremonies were performed. The half-hour guns, the tolling bells, the closed places of business, and the assembled crowds, variously estimated at from 5000 to 8000, testified the general regret of the city and whole community, which was well expressed by his fellow citizen, Z. Pope Vose, Esq., in a requiem, the second and last stanzas only of which our space allows us to give. "Toll! bells, in sadness, toll! Your solemn anthem roll! City that gave him, weep! Claiming this mournful trust, Take back his lifeless dust, Safely to guard and keep. When Sumter's cannon spoke, And at that summons woke * This is a private cemetery, laid out on the estate of the late Michael Achorn, first used on the death of his daughter, 1842. 5*

Speak from each iron tongue Grief that our hearts has wrung, - Toll! bells, in sadness, toll! Write! pen of History, write! In words of burning light, Deeds of this mighty day: And to the brave and free, Saviors of Liberty, Millions shall praises pay. Tell how the wrong assailed; Tell how the Right prevailed; And on thy deathless page, Bright'ning from age to age, Be its defenders hailed! Write! write! High on the roll of fame Blazon our hero's name! Write! pen of History, write! The colors of the Fourth regiment, rent, marked with bullet holes, and stained with the smoke of battle, but never with disgrace, were received in this city on the same day, May 9th, with the remains of the gallant General who nobly led it forth and so faithfully watched over its welfare. Beneath these banners, the regiment had fought in no less than 15 encounters with the rebels, from that of Bull Run to Chancellorsville; till, worn and shattered like many of those who followed them, they were sent home as proud trophies of the bravery and endurance of our citizen soldiers. Since then, the Fourth has continued to show a bright and untarnished record. At Gettysburg it was in the thickest of the fight on the right and front, going in with 299 men and coming out with only 211 men, Capt. Libby taking command after the colonel and major were successively wounded. At Rappahannock Station it fought with its accustomed bravery in Ward's brigade; and in 1864 it shared and severely suffered in all the battles of Grant's army from the Rapidan to the James, till the 15th of June, - when its war-worn remnant was ordered out of the line, 217 of its unflinching re-enlisted veterans and later recruits were transferred to the 19th Maine, and the remainder, numbering 13 officers and 132 privates, returned to this city "without a stain upon their banner and with a history that will never die." Here a public reception, heartfelt and appropriate, was tendered them by the city fathers; a procession of the Rockland Band, State Guards, Fire Department, and City Council, under direction of Gen. Titcomb, escorted them to a bountiful collation at Atlantic Hall, — after

Page  55 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 55 a few hearty words of welcome from Hon. N. A. Farwell, salutes from the batteries, and rejoicings mingled with tears of the assembled crowds as they welcomed the brave boys back. The regiment was mustered out, here, July 19th, — having, out of its whole number, viz., 1525, lost 153 officers and privates killed in battle or died of wounds, and 114 who perished by disease. These gallant soldiers of the 4th regiment, as well as their suffering companions in arms, have never been forgotten by the humane and generous ladies of Rockland. Their hands have been untiring, and their exertions almost uninterrupted. Besides their labors already noted, and the addition of three boxes containing 624 garments sent on to the Sanitary Commission, they, in July, 1862, transmitted four large boxes of hospital clothing, bedding, soap, sponges, spices, corn starch, farina, &c.; with two boxes of wines and jellies, to the State Relief Society. The city was at the same time canvassed in the several wards and $500 contributed to aid the Sanitary Commission. In answer to the appeal of the Surgeon-general for aid in mitigating the sufferings of the wounded in the battles which so mournfully closed the month of August, 1862, the ladies, misses, and children of this cify set themselves promptly at work preparing lint and bandages, gathering every evening at various places, whilst the members of the Universalist Sewing Circle and the children of Miss Eaton's school devoted their Wednesday afternoon to the same purpose; so that on the evening of that day, Sept. 3d, two large dry-goods boxes were forwarded, and the work still went on. Mrs. C. N. Germaine of this city, associate manager of the Commission, herself alone, from the time the 4th regiment left Rockland till July, 1863, cut, rolled, and put up in packages for hospital use, 3824 yards of bandages. During the winter of 1862-3, the Rockland ladies, having formed a Soldier's Aid Society, supplied their peculiar charge, the soldiers of the 4th regiment, with 165 pairs of woolen stockings; and, by April 6th, had finished and forwarded in response to the appeal of the New England Women's Association for sick and wounded soldiers, 30 cotton shirts, 15 flannel ditto, eight cotton flannel ditto, 16 pairs cotton flannel drawers, 12 bed-sacks, two sheets, two towels, six pillows, eleven pairs socks, seven pairs slippers, eight quilts, besides lint, bandages, reading matter, &c. On the 11th July, another box, containing $100 worth of bedding, with stockings, dried apples, pickles, corn starch, sugar, tea, &c., purchased with money collected by Mrs. Germaine from the business men of the

Page  56 56 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, place, was added. A barrel also of supplies was sent on to Mrs. Mayhew by the same society in Sept., 1863, which, through her ministering hands, supplied to many of the wounded cavalry soldiers a most timely relief. Beyond this, our information does not extend; but it is presumed that the louder calls in 1864 from bloodier battle fields, have not been unheeded. In June the city was canvassed by a committee, and several hundred dollars collected in answer to the appeal of the Christian Commission. The two companies of Home Guards under Capts. Wm. H. Luce and Wm. Farrow, Jr., formed in August, 1862, having declined with the apprehensions of danger from Southern privateers of that season, a company of State Guards (100 men) was formed in 1863, under F, Cobb, captain, 0. J. Conant (since O. P. Mitchell) and E. E. Wortman, lieutenants. Rifles, &c., were supplied by the State. The same season, government also caused the harbor to be defended by two batteries,-one on Jameson's Point, and the other at Half-way Point, on the opposite side towards Owl's Head, the distance between them being three miles. These were completed in 1864, supplied with five 32 and 24 pound guns, each, and garrisoned with a lieutenant and 25 soldiers. The commerce and navigation of this place has suffered far less than might have been anticipated. Early in 1861, the barkantine Ocean Eagle, of this port, Capt. William H. Luce, bound to New Orleans with a cargo of lime, was taken at the Balize by a rebel steamer, being the first vessel captured on the Mississippi. The captain, however, having been released on parole, returned home, and, in full confidence of regaining the vessel, valued at $12,000, the property of his widowed-mother, watched the course of events, and on the occupation of New Orleans, April 25, 1862, by our forces, was there almost as soon, found his barque safe among the only three Northern vessels saved from the flames, which, with such articles of property taken from him and sold as could be looked up, being restored by Gen. Butler's order, he was soon on his way to New York, with a fine freight of sugar, at $13 a hogshead. The ship Chas. A. Fagrwell, at the time of her capture valued at $40,000, mostly owned in this city, and supposed to have been destroyed with the other shipping by order of the rebels, was also found safe, on the occupation of New Orleans, and Capt. Amsbury was immediately sent out for her recovery. She had been purchased and was then claimed by a British merchant, who, at first, treated Amsbury's demand, as well as a subsequent order from

Page  57 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 57 Gov. Shepley, with supercilious contempt; but a file of soldiers with an order from Butler to deliver her up, together with everything belonging to her and to bring the merchant before the Governor for nis conduct, had its immediate effect, and everything was restored except an anchor and cable which had been taken away for a rebel gunboat. On the 3d of June, 1861, the brig Joseph, of 170 tons and valued at $4000, owned by S. N. Hatch, John and Geo. F. Cables, R. Sherer, and Joseph Ingraham, and commanded by Capt. N. Myers, on her passage from Cardenas, with a cargo of sugar, was captured by the rebel privateer Savannah, sent into Georgetown, S. C., condemned by the confederate court at Charleston, June 21st, and her cargo ordered to be sold. And, among the many vessels that have fallen a prey to the piratical steamer Alabama, were the ship Bethia Thayer, owned by Hon. Wm. McLoon of this city, which was captured in the spring of 1863, when bound for Nantes, with a cargo of guano, and allowed to go on her way on giving a bond for $40,000; and the Louisa Hatch, Capt. Grant, loaded with coal, captured April 4th, taken to the convict island near Pernambuco, and burnt. Not content with her contribution to the Fourth, Rockland was not slow to aid in the formation of other corps. Of the First Regiment Cavalry, this city furnished the following: Samuel C. Lovejoy, hospital steward. In Co. A, Edgar F. Comstock, discharged for disability'Nov. 25, 1862. In Co. B, Joshua A. Fessenden, sergeant, promoted to lieutenant in U. S. army; Edmund C.

Pendleton, wounded July 4, 1863; and Wm. Eugene Conant, whose record may be briefly given as a specimen of the spirit that has animated so many. He had with difficulty, one year before, been prevented from enlisting-a stripling of 18 yearsin the 4th regiment, with his three elder brothers. But on the prospect of a draft, in July, 1862, the brave youth wrung from his father a reluctant consent, and did active service in three battles previous to that of Antietam, September 17th, where, while gallantly facing the foe, he received a cruel wound in the thigh, and fell. After he fell, he was struck four times more, one ball passing through his wrist; and there he lay twenty-four hours, without covering, nourishment, or care, suffering what none can describe. Thence, he was taken a mile and a half to a hospital, where he had good care, and, in his last days, the loving attentions of his only sister. But all could not save him. No word of complaint passed his lips; no suffering could force him to say he regretted his enlistment. Heroic through all and to the last, perfectly sensible as the shades of death crept over him, his soul went up to a patriot's rest. His body was brought back to his home; and November 30th, funeral services were performed by Rev. Joseph Kalloch, at the second Baptist church, which was thronged by citizens eager to pay respect to, and take their last look at the young private who had died for his country. In November, 1861, a battery of Light Artillery was formed by enlistments in this city and the neighboring towns, under the command and by the active exertions of Davis Tilson of this place, who had been educated at West Point, was lately Adjutant General of the State militia, and, at the time, Collector of Customs in this district. It was known as the Second Battery, in 1st regiment of Mounted Artillery, Maine Volunteers; and was mustered into the U. S..service, Nov. 30, 1861. Besides the commander, this city contributed to

Tilson was appointed major of the Maine Volunteer Artillery, and in August following was raised to the position of Chief of Artillery in McDowell's army corps; since which he has been appointed Brigadier General, and put in charge of the department ot Ohio as Chief of Artillery. At its first engagement the Second Battery did gallant service

Page  60 60 HISTORY OF THOMASTON, at Cedar Mountain, Va., Aug. 9, 1862, opening near morning upon the flank of the rebel camp. Its first shot killed the confederate Gen. Winder, at the same time killing or wounding his whole staff, thus throwing the right wing of the rebel army into confusion. At Fredericksburg also, though it suffered more, having two men killed and fourteen wounded, this battery's services were equally gallant; at Chancellorsville it held an important position on the extreme right of the army; and at Gettysburg it was engaged, July 1, 1863, fully two hours before any other batteries arrived; but, insufficiently supported by infantry, came out of a double charge upon it by the enemy with all its guns safe, though reduced in men and horses and with carriages badly smashed. Later in the day however, three of its guns were the first to be posted in the grave-yard on Cemetery Hill; and under its successive commanders Hall, Ulmer, and Thomas, and through all the battles of 1864 around Richmond and Petersburg, it has ever sustained a distinguished reputation for promptness, discipline, and courage. On the President's call in July, 1862, for 300,000 men, this city, to avoid the necessity of drafting, voted to give to all who should voluntarily enlist to make up its quota of 80 men a bounty of $125 each; and, before August 9th, the whole number was obtained, including some of the best young men of the city. These went mostly to form company I of the 19th Maine regiment, and were mustered into service August 25th. They were Edward A. Snow, captain, discharged for disability Feb. 23, 1863; George D. Smith, lieutenant, promoted to captain, killed July 3, 1863; Henry H. Earle, sergeant, discharged for disability Dec. 9, 1862; James M. Higgens, sergeant, died Dec. 8, 1862; Edgar A. Burpee, corporal, promoted to captain, wounded at Gettysburg; William E. Barrows, corporal, promoted to sergeant, killed July 3, 1863; James W. Packard, musician, died Dec. 18, 1862; Hiram Whitten, wagoner; Gorham L. Black, wounded at Gettysburg; John H. Cables, sick in Washington; Joseph L. Clark, promoted to lieutenant; Luther Clark, and Adrian C. Dodge, both wounded at Gettysburg; George E. Holmes, promoted to sergeant, wounded and died June 15, 1864; Nahum R. Jackson, died Jan. 7, 1863, from cold taken in the exhaustion of retreat after the battle of Fredericksburg; Jas. H. Place, discharged for disability May, 1863; William N. Rackliff, in ambulance corps; Charles S. Richardson, discharged for disability, May 13, 1863; Solomon Taylor, sick at Washington Nov. 1863; and Hosea West, discharged for

Page  61 ROCKLAND AND SOUTH THOMASTON. 61 disability March 31, 1863. Rev. W. A. Smith of the Rockland Congregational Church was, in May 1863, appointed chaplain of the regiment. Others of this quota joined other regiments, and their names will be found on other pages. This company I was put to a severe trial at the battle of Gettysburg, Pa., July 2d and 3d, 1863, in which its brave commander Capt. G. D. Smith, long an esteemed teacher of music in this city, and Serg't Barrows, both endeared to many hearts, were killed. Before this July quota was wholly raised, an additional draft was ordered of another 300,000, to serve for nine months only. In consequence of the spirited exertions of a number of influential citizens, the quota of this city in cons'deration of the large number already furnished to the army, was reduced to 58; and, although $230 bounty was voted by the City Council Sept. 1, 1862, these were not readily obtained by voluntary enlistments, so that a draft was resorted to Sopt. 10th, but with a general understanding that no man should be allowed to go on compulsion. Volunteers were easily found, and the city's quota left for Augusta, Sept. 11th, forming with those of South Thomaston and Vinalhaven, Co. G, of the 28th Maine regiment. Those of this city were Augustine Thompson, captain, Edward A. Sprague, William Thurston, William H. Morse, and'Augustus Luce, sergeants; Edgar A. Hanaky, and Edgar O. Ulmer, corporals; Benjamin Studley, musician; James G. Simonton, wagoner; Danforth B. Blackington; John Clifford, Amos Eldridge, Nahum H. Hall, promoted to corporal; Charles Haskell, Joshua H. Kalloch, Alfred N. Kalloch, Adolphus A. Leavitt, Benjamin P. Mitchell, Charles H. Nickerson, Josiah H. Paine, George H. Place, Andrew D. Pottle, Ezekiel I. Perry, enlisted in U. S. navy; James Simmons, Charles Titus, Augustus H. Ulmer, and Leander Wall. In the extraordinary and almost unparalleled defence of Fort Butler at Donaldsonville, June 28, 1863, Capt. Thompson and his company won undying honors, but at the expense of hard fighting and many casualties. Besides Lieut. I. Murch, and C. V. Smith of Vinalhaven, Sergeant Morse, and Alfred N. Kalloch fell gloriously in the thickest of the fight; while, among many others, Joshua A. Kalloch of this city was wounded in the head so that he died a few days afier, and R. A. Palmer, commissary sergeant of the regiment, received two bullets in the hand. After their term of service had expired, the soldiers of this regiment were received with many honors at Augusta, and returned to their homes in August, 1863. VOL. It. 6

S. army, and, in command of the third gun of Griffin's battery, was wounded at Bull Run, by a minie rifle ball through his thigh, and though ordered to leave the field, remounted his horse and kept his piece going till unable to ride from loss of blood, when he got upon the box of a gun and gave orders to his gunners till his boot ran full of blood and he was completely exhausted. Capt. Griffin wrote of him, "I never saw more fortitude and courage displayed." Promotion soon followed, and in Oct., 1861, he was assigned the command of a battery of light artillery called Ames', or Battery A of U. S. Artillery. In the battles of the Chickahorniny, and especially Malvern Hill, he performed signal service, had two horses shot under him as he rode from gun to gun, cheering on his men and handling his battery with great skill, which was on the field the entire day and expended 1300 rounds of ammunition.`' Soon after taking command of the 20th regiment, he was promoted to a brigadier general; and, acting as major general, commanding the 1st division of the 11th army corps, greatly distinguished himself at Gettysburg, as on more recent occasions.

Besides this long list of her most precious treasures, torn from the peaceful pursuits of civil life, the city has contributed from her pecuniary resources, for soldiers' bounties, prior, to Feb., 1864, $77,175; for the support of soldiers' families, $9,220,32; and her citizens, for one year ending Aug. 31, 1863, were called upon to pay internal duties, licenses, &c., to the amount of $7,296,82, of which $2,814,96 were paid by 86 individuals as an income tax,-an amount said to be nearly double that paid by any other town or city in this the 5th district of Maine. The remainder was assessed on 13 wholesale dealers, one wholesale liquor dealer, 90 retail dealers, 24 retail liquor dealers, eight third class peddlers, four fourth class peddlers, three seventh class and two eighth class hotel keepers, five livery stable keepers, seven manufacturers, three photographers, seven lawyers, nine physicians and surgeons, and four apothecaries. The same taxes for 1864, amounting to $4434,67, together with the tonnage duties on vessels, had their amount been received in season to be here inserted, to say nothing about the derangement of business from fear of piratical cruisers, and other like causes, added to the preceding sums and individual contributions, would exhibit sufficient evidence that the people of this city have borne their full share of the burdens, privations, sorrows, and sufferings growing out of the present conflict —a willing sacrifice for liberty, union, and the institutions established by our forefathers.

Briggs, which reached a 3d edition in 1849, and which exhibits his early mental struggles against the doctrines of Calvinism, and, as he expresses it, the "Brief outlines of the fortunes of his life, From youth's fair morning, till his cherished hopes Completely vanished, like the morning dews; And these sole expectations now remained,To glide along unnoticed and unknown, To make life's final exit unobserved; And mingle, in oblivion, with the dust, Without a speaking marble o'er his bed, To show that Perigrinus ever lived." His nervous sensibility was great, his eccentricities, at times, amounted to insanity, and he died at the Thomaston poor-house in the month of Feb., 1864. 2, Irene, m. Ira Hussey of Cam., p.

Alice * This gentleman, who with his brothers has attained to so many offices of trust, writes to the compiler that "we, the Farwell boys, had no advantages, only a common country school education, of from six to twelve weeks in a year; we had to haul the wood, cut it, and take care of a large stock of cattle, and, at the same time, travel more than a mile to school over the coldest of all hills to the old log school-house with its rock chimney where the schools were, for the most part. kept. We commenced the world without a cent I was married when but nineteen, without a cent in my pocket or a home to go to. This, (1864), is my sixteenth year that I have been steamboat agent; for 14 years I was agent of about all the boats that ran on these waters; a part of the time I had 18 boats a weel,-they have been in here every hour in the night and day, and I never was sick, away from home, or caught napping, so but what I was on the wharf to meet them. I have collected more than $100,000for the boats; - can tell every cent I ever collected, who I collected it of, who I paid it to, and what I paid for all the freight that ever came or went to and from here and to whom consigned. I have not wet my lips with anything stronger than coffee for 42 years. And now at 50 years of age. 1 have enough to eat, drink and to wear. and I thank Heaven for it. I will now make a prophecy: I expect to live to see this rebellion put down, the shackles struck from every slave on the American continent, the public debt and interest all paid, and these United States to contain 100,000,000 of people."

He gave much trouble, by factious opposition to the government of Massachusetts, was finally driven off by the Indians, in 1075, and ended his days in Portsmouth, N. H., 1678, a. 68, leaving six sons. 1, John, who m.

Their mother, Sarah, was at the same time willed "the ould plantation" in Spurwink, 1000 acres, & also the Nonsuch place in Scarboro'.

His brother John about the same time settled in the town of Turner. Jacob, besides being a hunter as before mentioned, was, we have since learned, an able seaman, capable of navigating a ship to any part of the world; was of a sandy complexion, with blue eyes and a stature of six feet; was noted for intelligence, muscular strength, and endurance, together with some eccentricities -receiving the New Testament, but rejecting the Old, and professing the Quaker faith without being a member of the Society; was injured by the fall upon him of the companion-doors at sea, from the effects of which, 8 years after, he died Oct. 10, 1788. His wife died July 20, 1825, aged 84, & leaving 14 ch., 87 grand ch., & 61 great grand ch., as stated in newspaper. Jacob's ch. 1, Bradbury, b. 1757; m. Joseph Ingraham; r. Rock., and d.

"Germany is a strange country With all its abundance of literature, and the prevalence of education, with, also, freedom of religous opinion. it is far from being a free country. The people are despotically ruled by great or petty Princes, and have only here and there a mock form of representative government. The lower classes are entirely destitute of the means of improving their condition. -Though a country from which more of the elements of freedom sprung, than any other. it is now, unquestionably, among the least free of all the nations of Christendom."
