and Norman, Ensign Edson and assistant Engineer Proctor were in charge of the boats engaged in saving life. They all risked their lives repeatedly in boarding and remaining near the two destroyers and the two armored cruisers when their guns were being discharged by the heat and their magazines and boilers were exploding. They also showed great skill in landing and taking off the prisoners through the surf. Of the men mentioned in the several reports, I would call special attention to John Bond, chief boatswain's mate. He would have been recommended to the department for promotion prior to his gallant conduct during the action of July 3. I would also recommend to your attention Robert P. Jennings, chief machinist, mentioned in the report of Mr. McElroy. I believe it would have a good effect to recognize the skill of the men and the danger incurred by the engineer's force. I would also recommend that the acting appointments of those men mentioned by the officers in their rep

, ii. 31. Burk, ii. 120, seems to have been confused by the old mode of reckoning. The assembly of October 11, 1660, was still the last republican assembly. Berkeley had been directed to issue forth his summons to the present burgesses; that is, to those chosen before the restoration Hening, i. 542, 543. of the royalist assembly was in March, 1661. One of its earliest acts—disfranchising Mar 12. a magistrate for factious and schismatical demeanors, Hening, ii. 39. The victim was Major John Bond.—marks its political character; but, as democratic institutions had tranquilly and naturally been introduced, so the changes which were now to take place, proceeded from the instinct of selfishness, the hatred to popular power, the blind respect for English precedents, and not from any settled theory of government, or well-developed principles of conduct. The apprehensions of Virginia were awakened by the establishment of the colonial monopoly in the navigation act; and the assembly,

The Medford blacksmith of 1775. by R. J. P. Goodwin, M. D. one of the early settlers in Medford, about 1770, was Harry Bond, who came here from Londonderry, New Hampshire, to follow the occupation of a blacksmith. He was the grandson of John Bond, of Scotch-Irish ancestry, who took an active part in the siege of Londonderry, 1689. Harry was tall, robust, and of large frame, a characteristic of the people of the North of Ireland, from whom he was descended. At the time of which we write there stood at the corner of the Medford turnpike and Main street, a blacksmith shop, a plain and unpretentious structure, whose weather-beaten look denoted it had been built many years. A venerable oak-tree standing in front of the shop, with its overhanging branches, gave cooling shadows in the summer days. The wide and open door gave a view of the interior. On one side could be seen a massive framework, into which oxen were driven and secured in a sling while being shod. This ope
