Page  4 TO THE PUBLIC. It is expected in perusing a new book to find some reasons given why such a work i,' published, In this case an enquiry will be made, why is this work put forth when nothing new can be obtaiued from it, as the Journals of the Legislatures, Conventions, &c., and even Walton s Registers contain it all? I admit that if a person had those Journals and Registers at his command, he might learn many facts of which he is now ignorant, and will probably rclnaill so, if h1e depends on that source only for h'is information. You may go into any Town Clerk's Office ihn his State, and if you can find a complete set of the Legisla:ive journals, you will succeed better than I have done in any office or Library th.,t I have V\isitcde not even tlheState Librr ry contain the journals of 1786, but I found one in Rutl;nid. The j. urnal.s -are nearly all scattered "few and lalr betwccn." The University at Btrlingtoa have for many years been coilecting a perfect set of those journals, but a short time since, they h.id not obtained theln. As for the Regi.Sters nearly every one knows, tlhat notwithstanding all the us.fu infoiinatiol tlherein contained, and that which every family otughlt to purchase yearly and preserve, is, soon aliterr Ncw year's day given to tile youngest child to destroy, or deposited in the attic for the mice, to shelter them fiom the rude blasts of winter., The President of the Antiquarian Society, and some otters within my knowledge, have been many years trying to gather up'a completo Set of Vermiont Registers, but as yet have not been successful. As Ibr obtaining the informalion herein contained, from Journals and lecgisters without costivg a person ten times the, price of the book, is folly to think of, But if a person does not wish for the information for himself or family, I have laid him under no obligation to purchase, as I ihave not a solitary subscriber in the State. A person may go into every town in this State that has been organized sixty years, and in nine out of ten lie will be unable to obtain from any source, written or verbal, whio have represented the town each year since its organization. And furthermore, such a bold and fearless body of men as first settled Vermont, and safely carried her through all her-various encounters With her numerous enenmies and safely landed her on the shores of this glorious Union with peace and plenty, deserve to have their names written in letters of gold and handed down to the last man of the last generation that shall inlhabit the earth. LEONARD DEMING. Middlebury, May 30, 1851. In arranging the following pages, I have endeavored to give the year in which the termn of cffice begtn. In taking from the journals I found no difficulty of getting it rilght, nor from the Regisitrs, only, I had to take theyecar prlevious. The term of office of the Legisilative ipp,intmeunts in n:narly ull cases commenced on the first of December of the same year, lbut in Clerks ot Couirts, aln' lR]egise ters of Probate, it has teen more difficult to get right, tas some of the Courts and some of the l'robat6 Coftrts do not sit till after the commenem:nent of the year following, and their appointinernts beingr made at. thtose sessions, my correspontlents have given me the wroitg year. ButI have remedied that in nmainy cases, by taking a political view of the Courts that mnade the appointments, and the time tlhefirst Court vwas holden after the Judges were alpointed. I have endea;'ored to give the facts as tlhev were, but I do not flatter myself to suppose that errors do not exist jn tlhe work wllhic I have not yet ascertained. Ihave already found some which will be mentioned in an f.ir-ta. I have in some instances had wrotgt information from correspondents, which they, have afterwards discovered, and rectified, but too late to prevent the error occurring.

GENERAL ETHAN ALLEN, Was horn in Roxburv, Conn, in 1739. and died at Colchester, Vt., Feb. 15, 1789. Thefollowind is related of him as having taken place while a prisoner in irons on his passage to England, While closely confined to his cabin, he discovered that a pin or wire that fastened one of his handcuffs was broken. Extricating the pieces withi his teeth, he was enabled to loosen the bolt anti set one hand at liberty. by the aid ot which, and his teeth, he soon had both at liberty, and he was not long in liberating his fcet. But ftaring a discovery might lead to worse treatment, he replaced his irons, bolts

Page  6 6 "TOWN CLERKS. and pins before the arrival of his keeper. It soon became a fine recreation for the General to take off and put on his irons at pleasure. One lday the Captain wvishiig to afford the crew some merriment, ordered that Allen be brought on (leck. Hloping to frighten him, the Captain said: " There is a probability that the ship will founiler-if so, w\hat will become of us, especially you, Mr. Allen, a rebel against the Iing?'"Why," sa;1,1 Allen,' that would be very much like our dininer hour." " Why so?" said the Captain not refle:ting that Allen was not al owed to come on deck only when he the captain went lown into his cabin to dine. " Well, you see, atisw(red Allen, "I'd be on my way up just as you would be going be.'ow." Th'is answer (lid not please the Captain, and he began a regular tirade of a.buse gXairnst the American people. " In a short time," said the Captain, " all the rebels will be in tile same situaotion as yourself." This was too much for Allen, and raising his hands to his tctlh, soon snapspedt the bolts and pins, took off his irons and threw them overboard-seized the panic s!ruc k Cptnli' bIy) the collarv and threw him headlong upon the deck, then turning to the aftrighted crew, lie excl:aimnled in a voice of' thunder.;' If I am insultedl again during the voyage, I'll sinlk the ship and swim ashore." This exploit had such an effect on the Captain and crew, that no further insult was offered to the General during the passage.

Page  7 VERMONT. 7 The tract of country now known by the name of Ve;mont, was, previous to the American Revolution, known by the name of " The New Hampshire Grants," and was divided into four counties, by the Government of the then Colony of New York, viz.: Cumberland and Gloucester on the east, and Bennington and Charlotte on the west of the range of Green Mountains. But by a c reful perusal of facts of those times it does most plainly appear that the inhablitants of the Grants wecre not very obedient subjects to those New Yorkers who volunteered to rule over them. Soon after the Declaration of Independence at Philadelphia, in July, 1776, the Gren AlountainZ Boys, concluded they were not under the role of any earthly nation or government except their own. They therefore called a Convention of Delegates from ihe several towns, which Convention met at Dorset, July 24, 1776, but no records show what steps were then taken, only it was adjourned to Sept. 25th, same year, when it again met at the same place, as appears from the following record: NEW IHAMPSHIRE GRANTS. DORSET, September 25th, 1776. At a General Convention of the several Delegates from the towns on. the west side of the Green Mountains, the 24th of July last, consisting of fifty one mernbers, representing 3.5 towns, and holden this day by adjournment, by the delegates on the east and west side of the Green Mountains, the following members being present at the opening of the meeting: Capt.

A committee of seven reported the wrongs and grievances suffered from New Ycrk, anid the impolicy of any further connection with tlh(m, directly'or indirectly. Resolved, Therefore, that this Convention being fn!lly convinced, ta:lt it is absolutely necessary that every individual in the United States of America should exerlt themselves to the utmost of their abilities in the defence of the libertiep thereof; theretore, that this Convention, may the better satisfy the public of their punctual attachment to the said common cause at present as well as heretolore, we do make and subscribe the following covenant, viz.: We, the subscribers, inhabitants of that district of land commonly called and known of New Hampshire Grants, being legally delegated and authorized to transact tle public a(nd polit;eal affairs of the aforesaid district for ourselves an1d constituents, do solemrnly covenantr at d1 ( g;'Fe, thl}:t for the time being, we will strictly and religiously adhere to the several r(solvcs -of tliis or on-.future convention constituted on said district by the free voice of the friiends to Amnlerican lil-erties, which shall not be repugnant to the resolves of the honorable the Continental Congress, relative to the cause of America.

The comimittee thfen after repeating the wrongs from New York, offered the following de( lar. ation:' This Convention, whose members are duly chosen by the free voice of their constituents in the several townts, onl the New Hampshire Grants, ii public meeting assembled, in our own names, and in behalf of our constituents, do hereby proclaim and publicly declare, that the digtrict of territory, comprehending and usually known by the name and description of the New Hampshire Grants, of right ought to be, and i; hereby declared forever hereafter to be considered, as a free and independent jurisdiction, or State; by the name, and forever hereafter to be called, known, and distinguished by the name of New Connecticut, alias Vermont. &c." This Convention after inftrming the Continental Congress of their doings, adjourned to meet at Windsor, on the first WVednesday in June. The above declaration brouaht down upon us the wrath of New York, but notwithstanding that those brave Green Mountain IBoys, whom any nation or people on earth. might well be proud of, fillowed up their declaration by the adoption of a Constitution the s;ime year, and a Lcgislative session il Malrch following. Itn February, 1779, the L2gislature passed an act in the face and eyes of' the New York laws dividing the Stmte into two counties, Bennington on the west and Cumberland on the east of the Green Moiintains, and divided eachl county into two shires each, Westminster aitd Newbunry on the east, and B3enninrgtonl and Rutlanrd on tie west. That division of counties remained till the extran session of the Leoislature in Feb. 1781, when the County of lRutland was inlcorporated, froln Bannintton, and W'indsor and Orange counties were incorporated from Cumblerland, and the name of Cumblerland altered to Windhamn. Zadock Thompson, in hi.s history of Vermont, says, that Chittenden County was incorporated October 22'd1, 1782, anld AddisonI County Feb. 27, 1787. This is a mistake as to both Counties, as will tbe seen by the following extract of a letter from Mr. Thompson to a friend, who had addressed him on the sultjcct: "While in Montpelier a few (lays since,.I was induced, by your suggestions, to examine the manuscript acts in the office of the Secretary of State, and I there found that Addison County was incorporated October 18th, 1785, nidl that Chittenden County was incorporated October 22ndi, 1787." This explanation explains a mystery which was hard to solve, which was, " hw caine Addlison County Court to set in Colchester at their Nov. Terril, 1786, and one of Chittenden County citizens for the first Sheriff, in 1785, and one of her citizens for side Judge 1785,and another in 1736," for such are the facts, and as appeared it was all (lone over one year before Addison Cotinty was incorporated. When the County of Addison was incorporated it included within its bloundatlies the present county, (except Granville and Orwell,) the whole of Chittenden, Fra:iklin, Grant Isle, antd Lamoille, nine towns from Orleans, and eight from Washington Counties, andl that was the size o thie County till Oct. 19. 1787, when Kingston, now Granville, was annexed to it from Orange County, and three days after by the incorporation of Clhittenden County. Atldison County wvas reduced to its present dimensions, except Sraksbluro' has been added Irorn Chlittenden, and Orwell from Rutland, and a part of Philadellphia in Rutland has been added to Goshen, and a par't of Goshen has been set to Roehester, and the town of Warren in 1829 was annexedl to Washington County. Avery's Gore has b;een annexed to Lincoln, altering no County lines. The first County Court in Addison County, was holden at Addison, on the first Tuesday in March, 1786, and continued to be holden there, (with the exceptilneof the November term ot that year wliech was held at Colchester,) till the first of April, 179t, and since that all the sessions have bee liolden at 5Middlebury. The Counties.of Caledonia and Franklin were incorporated Nov. 8th, 1796, thle former fiom Orange and the. latter from Chittenden Counties. The Legislature on the 2d day of March, 1797, passed an act defining the boundaries of eleven counties, including the whole State, but left the Counties of Essex and Orleans to be connected with Caledonia and liranklin for all purposes till it future Legislature should elect their County officers, which was done at the October Session, 1 797 as to Orleans County, and for Essex County, the County officers were appointed at the Oct. session 180o. Thus the State remained with eleven Counties till the organization of Grand Isle County. which took place in November, 1805. After the sessions of the Legisatutirewere established at Montpelier, and that became a thriving town, the Legislatule saw fit in 1811, to organize a new County of which Montpelier was near the centre, by the name of Jefferson, containing 15 towns firom the adjoining Counties of Orangre, Caledonia and Chittenden. In 1814, when the Federal party were predominent in every branch of the government, the namtne ot the County was changed to'Washington," and has retained that name since. In 1836, the County contained 19 towns by the addition of Elmore from Orleans, Woodbury from Caledonin, Roxbury from Orange, and Warren from Addison. In 1336, the County of Lamoille was incorporated by taking Stowe and Elmore from Washington, Mansfield, which has since been annexed to Stowe from Chittenden. Eden, Hydepark, Morristown and Wolcott from Orleans, and the other five towns from Franklin. and the State has remained in that situation since till 1848, when the towns of Windsor, and Montpelier twere divided intotwo towns each, West Windsor and East Montpelier, making 240 organized towns in the State.

On a Sattrday evening, a' young man, and moneyless, called at the Parson's house for supper and lodging. The Parson did not see fit to comply with the request, and sent him to his neighbor Henry, and assured him that he would be well provided for, but still the man will refuse you at first, but you stick to him and he. will accommodate you.-.

Just before he was ready to start, and being near meeting time, Mr. Henry informed his guest, that his dog was not a proper one to go into the wilderness with, and that he had a neighbor who had a large dog, and just the one for the woods among the wild animals, and he would like to exchange him for a small one, but no doubt he will refuse at first, and tell you to gq about your business, I do not swap dogs on Sunday, and the like, butyou stick to him and you will get his dog. The young man went to the house just as the Parson was starting for meeting and informed him that he had come to swap dogs, and received the answer that Mr. Henry predicted. Well I was told you would make such excuses, but that in case I stuck to you I should get your dog, and that, sir, you may rest assured I shall do, and went with the Parson to the steps of the meeting house. The Parson finding the man to be as good as his word, told him to go and take the dog, and be off in a hurry, and never trouble me again in this way. Mr. Henry outlived the Parson a few years, but their remains are both in one grave yard in Chester, and not far distant from each other as their grave stones show,

GAMALIEL PAINTER Came into Middlebury, from Salisbury, Conn., in company with John Clhipman; from the same place, early in the year 1773, with a view of making a permanent settlement. Before they arrived, a Mr. Benjamin Smalley had come into town with his family for the same object, and builta small house, the first erected in town. They settled near together in the south west corner of the town. Chipman had commenced a clearing of six or eight acres in 1766 and abandoned it, as no one lived within many milcs of him. When he returned he settled on the same lot that he first began upon, and where Jonathan Seeley now resides, Painter settled near a mile south of him on the south line of the town, as the lines are now established, and Smalley about half a mile west of Chip. man. Thus the settlement continued to increase till the ravages of the war caused them all to abandon their homes inr June, 1776, except Benjamin Smalley and a Mr. Daniel Foot, and they followed in September after. After the close of the war, in 1783, many of those who had left in 1776, with others returned to the town, and became permanent settlers. Thompson's Vermont, does not inform us whether Painter or Chipman returned or noL Gamaliel Painter and Jehn Chipm an re7

Slade's State papers inform us that David Reddling who was executed at Bennington, June 11, 1778, was, or had been in the custody,'f Ben. jamin Fay, Sheriff of the County of Bennington, (page 239.) By the same authlority it appealrs that Joseph'ay on the 10th of 1)ecember, 1778, was appointed Clerk of the Supreme Court for Bennington Co., and on the 26th of May, 1779, Stephen R. Bradley was appointed Clerk for Cumnberland County, pages 249, 251 and 252 we are informed that Noah Smith was appointed State's Attorney pro teat for Cumberland Co., in May, 1779, and in June, 1779, was splpointed State's Attorney for Bennington C,,unty. Thus it appears that those ufficers were appointed notwithstanding the court records do not show it. In Fehruary, 1779, a law was passed dividing the State ir to two counties. Bennington on the Nwest and Cuniherland on the cast side of the mountain. If it was divided as laid'on otn t' e laaw pullisl(hd in Sltldc', State papers, (pages 094-5,) the county of Cumlber!lanrd would lo( k rather aflspish, leCino, bht 6 miles widle near the center. but as there was then no town in the S'te l!,v tile name of Bradford, it is presuimed that Bartnard is the t)own on wihich the li;e shot-ildl be,!escri bedl as that wnuld be runningS a very proper course, lietween dlie last and next mentioned poionts. Since the above was in type, I have receiv dC a letter florn the (li erk of' the Court in B13 ri ncrtcn, w~hich says. "I e(culdl not find any Riecord, nor:,inytlhilr. else to sliow who were the Shl rift's of ttle County brcfore 1786i but I have jtust lind a contver.ttio;i withl Samitel Fa1, wh l, retides in th- house where the'" Council of S'feity" heildl its meetin(s ii. tliis town, andl lie svs that Beinjamint F iFa, his father, awas SheJ if two or three yearn, and the m. mle, cs wlcn hlie ltt ir, Pevlvint, i (dl wi en.is flather's lime had expired Jonas Galusha took tie office, sld 11e cotlti dllE.i ill it till Ij)tavid Polilt)soll W: S p)pointed.

Jousepli Safflrd,jr., the father of Samuil, was born at lpswich, Mass, in 1705. Samuel Safford was born tit Norwich, Conn., April 14, 1737, and died at Bennington March a1tbh, 1813, being very near 76 years of age. On page 38, I.st line but one, for 1785 read 1751.

In a late publication, in a note from the above name, I- find an account, fiom which I make the following statement: Joseph Bowker came to Rutland at an early- period of its settlement and was active and energetic in his opposition to the unjust claims of New York, and, twas among the first in effecting a general organizatiori of the inhabitants of the Grants in opposition to those claims. This opposition, in an organized form, was first effected by a convention which met at Dorset in, January, 177,6, at which time an association was formed and entered into "-to defend by arms the liberties of these United American States against the fleets and armies of Great Britain:." *This Convention ratified the United States' Constitution before her admiss on into the Union.

During his third term in Congress, in 1796, he became identified with the rising republican party, by voting against the appropriation of ftunds to carry into effect Jay's Treaty. This heinig unsattisfactory to a majority of his constituents, Mlathew Lyon was chosen a member in room of Gov. Smith. In 1797, the Legislature, of which he was a member. elected him Chief Judge of the Supreme Court. He was a noble looking man, and got the name of "the handsome Judge." At the Vergennes Slaughter in 1.798, Gov. Smith was not re-elected. In 1800 he was again chosen a member of Congress which he held one term. and at the end of which he took his seat in the United States Senate in March, 1803, which office he resigned on being chosen Governor of the State in October, 1807. While Governor he called the attention of the Legislature to the mode of punishment then existing, and t( his influence was the present penitentiary system adopted. He held the office but one year, during which his health was much impaired. His grave stone was worded so different from most others, that I took a copy of it, and is as follows: "The Honorable Israel Smith, born at Suffield, Connecticut, April 4th, 1759, and died at Rutland, Vermont, Dec. 2d, 1810. No lengthened scroll, no praise encumbered stone, My epitaph shall be my name alone; If that with honor fail to crown my clay, Oh! may no other fame my deeds repay. That, only that, shall single out the spot, By. that remembered,, or with that forgot."

Also, the Justices of the Peace now living, who have served twelve years, and those deceased who have served twenty years. In this part of the Work inaccuracy must be expected, as the same name occurs in different towns, which may sotnetimes be the same person, and sometimes not. I have endeavored to have those cases correct, but probably have failed in some. In consequence of wrong names being printed in the Journals and Registers, I shall correct. in the last part of the Appendix, some errors in the Catalogue, not yet mentioned therein. Explanation of the Abbreviations. Gran., stands for Granted. Char., for Chartered, or dated. F. Settler, for first Settler. Org., for Organized. F. T. C., for first Town Clerk. F. Con.. for first Constable. F. Sel., for first Selectmen. F. B., or born, for first white person born in the town. Those names in Roman letters, are supposed to be dead. Those in Italic are living, and those in Small Capitals are now in office. Those in Roman and Italic, have died during the last year. Those in Roman and Small Capitals, died this year while in office. F. Rep. for first Representative in the General Assembly.'

Fiomin this alone it appears plainly that when an act mustbe done on a certairin day, y the Constitution, no 4 i:her day will answer io do that duty on, nor can it be made so by any statute law wltitterer, on less that law is inaccordance with the Constitution oflthe state. The law relie I upon to hold i,he eltection fot weeks atlI ininths, is the 14th section of ch ipter l'of the Revised Statutes wh ichlsays that tlie voting sht 1 be contiru';d "until an electiou is tnale." Here the Con.t tution t ind the law clash, anld as the. l.egislaiure have not the power to make the Conatitution uccord M ith the law, it is their duty'to alter tihe law so as not to conflict with the Coustitution. According t9 th a precedents by the,,egislat.kre, no freemn's meeting can lbe dissolved till a Represent,;tive is closen, if one person, dilnsk oi sober, objects to dissolvillg th. tr!eeting, but the seaie'mui tbe continued l! imon!hs..
