Cambridge town, 1750-1846. Andrew McFarland Davis. The period in the history of Cambridge which we are about to consider naturally divides itself into two portions, the line of separation between which is furnished by the Revolution. The marked differences in the career of the town, caused by its change from a township in the Royal Province of Massachusetts Bay to one of the fundamental parts which constituted the State of Massachusetts, would attract the attention of the most casual obs5. In 1810, notwithstanding the fact that Brighton and West Cambridge had in the mean time been set off, the census showed 2323 inhabitants. In 1840, there were 8409, and in 1850 there were 15,215. There must have been therefore in Cambridge in 1846 six times as many inhabitants as there were in Cambridge, Brighton, and West Cambridge in 1790. This growth was at a rate nearly three times that of the State at large during the same period. This prosperity resulted from protracted peace, and f
es. It would, perhaps, have been, but for one potent element of misrule,— something to which nothing of the present day can be in the least compared. There are now about 3000 students resident in Cambridge. There were, by the catalogue of 1845-46, only 458. But of that 458, 132 were in the Law School, and of that number 57 were from the Slave States; and those few dozen unquestionably exceeded, in capacity of disorder, the whole 3000 of the present day. They indeed introduced, unaided, morrs of Cambridge were, at least in the region of Harvard Square, more distinctly stratified than now; there was then a more distinct gentry, consisting largely of the college people and those who had come to Cambridge to educate their sons. In 1845-46, the whole number of resident instructors of all grades, including the Law and Divinity schools, comprised but twenty, instead of being counted as now by hundreds; but the families of those twenty were the social centre. I remember the perfectly c
oming a city. Before this charter agitation of 1846, there had been no new cities in Massachusetts tts municipalities may be said to have begun in 1846. The rapid increase in the population and prin the form of government made by the people in 1846, as we are with the new conception of municipales River is a proper municipal function; yet in 1846, instead of being city property, the two princiesent fire department is the culmination. In 1846, Cambridge was a city of wells and cesspools, bhe youth. And yet the property of Cambridge in 1846 was taxed at the rate of $5 on $1000. It might,d amount of service the municipal government of 1846 afforded, the following table of the expenses ot the conception of municipal government was in 1846. Cambridge held itself responsible for the edusonal property was $80,911,060. The tax rate in 1846 was $5; the total valuation $9,312,481, and the city debt $22,000. In 1846, the municipal debt amounted to .0023 of the wealth of the city; in 1895[4 more...]
was then termed. This private gymnasium was conducted by a man named T. Belcher Kay, who devoted most of his attention to boxing. Parkman, the historian, and many of the men in college at that time, were pupils of Kay, though the gymnasium had no official connection with the university. During this period considerable interest was awakened in recreative games, football, baseball, and cricket then being played. College boat-clubs were formed in 1845, and the first boat-house was built in 1846. From this year on, boating was freely engaged in by the students, partly for exercise, but principally for pleasure. Although boat races began as early as 1845, there were no contests with Yale and other colleges until after 1850. During the next decade the seed sown by Harvard was beginning to bear fruit in other institutions. Match ball games and boat races were occasionally arranged, and a renewed interest in gymnastics was awakening. In 1860, the old gymnasium opposite Memorial Hal
ly delicate and respectful in their treatment of each other as any similar classes in our adult population. Nevertheless, there were parents who withdrew their daughters from the Auburn High School and the Washington Grammar School, whereupon, in 1846, for reasons of economy, the two schools were united in the Auburn building under the name of the Auburn Grammar and High School. Thus Elijah Corlett's school was once more under one roof,— partly a grammar school in the old sense, and partly a gers of discipline have been comparatively rare. It is hoped that teachers will continue to have the countenance of all good men in their endeavors to banish lying, obscenity, profanity, and every other vice and impropriety from the schools. In 1846, it appears that many schools are too large, and that teachers cannot hear as many lessons as the scholars are able to learn. Hence idleness, lack of quiet, and lack of discipline. Eighty or ninety pupils tax a teacher unduly. The schoolhouse
Cambridge, a university town of vastly more importance and with far greater facilities for producing a newspaper than any of these places, had no home paper until 1846. This is the more remarkable in that for years she had counted among her highly respected citizens a number of well-known journalists who rode into Boston each f the Massachusetts legislature, in 1806. He has been immortalized by Mr. Lowell, in the first series of the Biglow Papers, which was published in the Courier, in 1846-1848, when Mr. Buckingham was its editor. his Folks gin the letter to me and i shew it to parson Wilbur and he ses it oughter Bee printed, send it to mister Buckiome right good editorial work during that period. John Gorham Palfrey was one of the editors of the Boston Daily Whig, the precursor of the Free Soil press, about 1846, and was one of the editors of The Commonwealth. Robert Carter, who was also one of the early editors of The Commonwealth, had previously aided James Russell Lowe
and largest in the archdiocese, one of the oldest Catholic total abstinence societies in the United States, and has been the example and mainstay of the temperance cause among the Catholics in Massachusetts from its beginning. It has a present membership of about three hundred and fifty, which includes some of the best business and professional men in the parish. Conclusion. The foregoing shows the rapid growth of the Catholic population in our city. When the charter was granted in 1846, there existed but one Catholic church, and this had been erected less than four years, and seated only about six hundred people. There were then fourteen Protestant churches, two of which had been founded as far back as 1636. In the present year of 1896 there are seven Catholic and forty-two Protestant churches and chapels, and the Catholic population numbers about thirty-five thousand. Few of all these people can trace their lineage in this country further back than two or three genera
k, Latin, French, and German languages; and being not only the maker of books for others, but the author himself of several. His Treatise on Punctuation is an acknowledged authority on the subject. Emigrating from England to the United States in 1846, he established himself in business in Boston, the firm name being John Wilson & Son. Even before his removal to Cambridge, his fame as a skillful and artistic printer was wide-reaching; and this, in connection with the intelligence and enterpriser Street, and the salesroom is in Roberts Building, Harvard Square.
