published much. Besides being editor of the Christian Souvenir, and contributing to the Christian Examiner, the list of his writings includes: a poem on The Seventy-first Anniversary of Leicester Academy, Massachusetts, August 7, 1835; a poem on The Will of God, printed about 1837; a volume of poems, Pebbles From Castalia, 1840; a Fourth-of-July Address, given in West Killingly, Conn., 1856.

The Merrimac Canals were blotted out by the railroad. The opening of the Lowell road in 1835, to Nashua in 1838, and to Concord in 1842, were successive steps of destruction to the whole system of river navigation, and culminated in the total abandonment of the canal soon after the Concord railroad was put in operation. A hardy race of boatmen, pilots, and raftsmen—men of uncommon strength and endurance, skilled in their calling, but unfamiliar with other labors—were suddenly thrown out of employment. The wooden dams and locks went to decay, the embankments were cut and plowed down, and successive spring freshets have hu
