The Register has told the story before (Vol. XVII, p. 92) in some detail, and now, because of its centennial, notices it again. Accustomed as we have become to the swiftly moving motor boats on our river, we would look with some curiosity on the nondescript that ploughed its way through the old town—not on the river, but where is now no vestige of water, nor has there been since 1852, when the Middlesex canal gave up its unequal struggle with the rival railroad. In a town of less than fifteen hundred people, with the canal's course in a sparsely settled portion, probably but few saw it.
