Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 2., The Cutter family and its connection with a tide mill in Medford. (search)
rdson, in Woburn, latterly known as the Cutter's mill, in Cutter's village, in Winchester, he built a new structure with two run of stone, which he improved and occupied until his death. In 1817 he built a grist mill in North Chelsea run by tide water, which was occupied by his sons till the year 1830, when they sold the estate and removed to Winchester. Zachariah Cutter, a brother of the last-named John, carried on the old tide mill in Medford for a number of years, and then went to Milton, Mass., and engaged in the same business. His death occurred in 1808. Gershom Cutter, a brother of the above, after having had charge of the North mills in Boston, bought the old homestead mills in Medford, and building a new grist and saw mill in 1810, continued in the same occupation till his death in Medford, May 22, 1840. His son Gershom carried on his father's mill until 1845, when he purchased the Tufts mill on the Medford turnpike (now Mystic avenue), rebuilt that structure, which h
the only ship-yard then existing in the town. In 1811, he paid his first tax in Medford, and though he was only twenty-one years old, he was assessed for personal estate to the amount of $200. He was not taxed here in 1812, being at that time in Milton, at work in the shipyard of Daniel Briggs. In 1814, he returned to Medford, and thereafter made his home here. Before his twentieth year he had worked in various shipyards of the State with his father, who was a very well educated man for his dk in various places, and in Salem he boarded with Baptists and attended church with them. He became interested in their methods but never subscribed to their creed. From that time, however, he became interested in religious matters. While in Milton, he attended the church of Mr. (afterward Dr.) Codman, in Dorchester. He preached the orthodox doctrine of predestination and its attendant beliefs. His congregation was divided for and against him. A council was called which decided that he sh
The Doctor's visit. This same Dr. Ames expressed himself in quite caustic terms regarding some practitioners. But on July 20 (1767) he made a call on one, thus noted: Went Dr. Gardner's at Milton drank excellent Wine made of Cherries thus 50 lb. of good Cherries stoned, 37 lb of Sugar and Water enough to make the whole into the Quantity of half a Barrell. N. B. you put in the whole Cherries except the Stones The above must have been Milton home brew (equally common in Medford) and seemed to have impressed him favorably. What he might say today is another matter.
Messrs. Editors: Allow me to call your attention to a charter granted by the North Carolina Legislature during its late session, to connect by a short line of railroad, the North Carolina Central Railroad with the Richmond and Danville Railroad, at or near Barksdale's Depot, on the Danville road. This new road is to begin at the company's shops — the central point on the North Carolina Central Railroad, and now a beautiful little village — thence it takes its route to Yanceyville, thence to Milton, and then to Barksdale's Depot. By reference to the map, it will be seen that this is a perfectly straight line, thus affording the privilege so long sought and so earnestly desired by both the people of Caswell and adjoining counties, and by the citizens of Richmond, of connecting by a short and practicable line of railway, the two railroads above mentioned. Hitherto this connection has been most urgently pressed in the North Carolina Legislature, but has been constantly and steadily resi
tion between those who have fallen, but because he was a member of the company to which I belong, and well known by me. All who were acquainted with this gallant youth remember his jovial nature, his merry, lighthearted disposition. No member of our company was more popular than he, for all liked "little Milton" for his jolly humor and uniform amiability. When the battle of the 18th of July was about to commence, as we stood in death like silence, awaiting the onset of the foe. I looked at Milton to see if I could detect in his countenance anything indicative of the emotions which certainly stirred my own bosom, and cast a pallor over almost every face. I never saw a countenance freer from a shade of anxiety or care. With gun in hand and finger upon the trigger, his face wore simply the animated expression of a hunter's, who momentarily expects his game to spring from the covering of an adjacent thicket. When the battle was raging I frequently heard his usual merry laugh and cheer
The expeditions. The four Yankee expeditions by sea against the South, have as yet accomplished nothing important. Their equipment must have afforded an immense demand on the merchant marine of the Northern cities, and their conception may be probably due to Yankee cunning. There are none more rampant for putting down rebellion and annihilating the rebels than the owners of unemployed vessels in Portland, Boston, New Bedford, New York, and a host of Yankee ports. They shout for the Government and execrate the South to some purpose! The war is to them a harvest, the like of which they never had. Even the old whalers of New Bedford that were unfit for sea, were sold to great advantage to be used in the stone blockade! The mercenary ship owners have certainly done better with these projects than the Government. Like the offspring of Sin in Milton's "Paradise Lost," these heartless Yankees are eating into the very vitals of their own Government! Let them eat on!

The Origin of Familiar Phrases. --The term "masterly inactivity" originated with Sir James Macintosh. "God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," which everybody who did not suppose it was in the Bible credited to Sterne, was stolen by him from George Herbert, who translated it from the French of Henry Estienne. "The cup that cheers but not inebriates," was conveyed by Cower from Bishop Berkeley, in his "Siris." Wadsworth's "The child is father to the man," is traced from him to Milton, and from Milton to Sir Thomas Moore. "Like angels' visits, few and far between," is the offspring of Hook; it is not Thomas Campbell's original thought. Old John Norris (1658) originated it, and after him Robert Blair, as late as 1745. "There's a guide time coming" is Scott's phrase in "Rob Roy," and the "almighty dollar" is Washington living's happy thought.
