For the first twenty-five years of its existence, this company stood among the first for celerity and grace of drill-exercise and martial manoeuvre. It felt that it had a sort of brigade character to sustain; and the ambitious young men of Medford joined heartily to make it the banner corps of the county. In the war of 1812, this company was called to guard the powder-house, and did duty there for some weeks. The zeal for military display decl

On Sunday, once, the pitch-pipe set the pitch so high that the whole choir broke down. Still, Bailey tried on the second verse, and again broke down.

General Brooks could not endure it any longer; and he rose in his pew, beckoned to Bailey, and said, Hadn't you better take another pitch?
