Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 24., The Turnpike highwayman's Fate. (search)
nce he went to Springfield, where, a week later, he was arrested and brought to the jail at East Cambridge. The Centinel of August 22 said The highwayman taken. Yesterday Michael Martin was examined at Cambridge on charge of being the person who robbed Major Bray on the Medford Turnpike. He was fully committed to take his trial in October next. The file of the Centinel consulted is incomplete, but from another source we learn that he was convicted on October 9. The Centinel, October 20, said, The sentence of Michael Martin, convicted of highway robbery has not been passed upon him. His counsel have moved an arrest of judgment for misdirection of court matters of law and the court has assigned a future day for hearing arguments on the motion It seems that the future day was not long deferred, for on October 22— the Chief-justice after a most dignified and pathetic address to him pronounced the awful sentence of the law. There must have been much excitement
Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 25., Medford Church anniversaries. (search)
early members and few of their descendants or those that knew them, Mystic Church gathered to do them honor and celebrate its anniversary. Mystic Church has a history of its own, though somewhat interlocked with another that preceded it twentyfour years before, and whose centennial in 1923, if observed, must be by Mystic Church, because of the union of the older with the younger church in 1874. And Mystic Church made a good beginning this year toward that event. On Friday evening, October 20, an illustrated lecture by the pastor showed the Pilgrims from old England and the Puritans of New England, the founders of Congregationalism. Sunday, October 22, its announcement styled Historical Day. The usual form of Sabbath worship was observed, and the pastor, Rev. Thomas C. Richards, took for text of his anniversary address Heb. XI: 40: Better things for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. He seemed to have studied Medford history as well as local church histor
Season of 1924-25. October 20. Unseasonably cold, but nine present to give their vacation experiences. President Ackerman told his, in which he felled an oak tree (just over Medford line in Somerville), where thirty-two two-apartment houses have been built. The tree was one hundred and ninety years old. Mr. Mann told of his at the Holton family reunion at Northfield, where he read the historical address on August 28, quoting a little therefrom. Several others alluded to theirs and a pleasant evening (indoors) was passed. November 17. Sudden winter conditions, and but five came to our rooms. Rev. Arthur Ackerman was to have spoken but it was thought best to await a better time. December 15. A cold day and evening. Misfortune of fire in barrel of kindling wood—some damage by smoke. But four ventured out to the meeting. January 19, 1925. Annual meeting. Various reports made and officers chosen. January 26. Seven directors held meeting at Mr. Colby's and appoin

has met with some serious disaster, soon after leaving Hilo. It was Capt. Hunt's intention to have taken a northerly course from the Islands, till he judged he could fetch the port of Acapulco, where he purposed going first to forward his dispatches to Washington. "If this plan was followed, the Levant probably ran North to about lat. 34 deg., then tacked and headed for the Mexican Coast.--The brig Consort was dismantled in a gale, about October 15th, according to one account, and October 20th, according to another. "In looking back over our shipping memoranda, we find that the whaling barks Emerald, Robert Morrison, Florence and Bragansa, and ships Republic, Coral and Majestic Arch, reports severe gales in from 30 to 45 North latitude, from October 3d to October 10th, (wind S. W.,) in which they all received more or less damage. "Had the Levant simply been dismasted she could have reached these islands under jury masts, as the boats could have got here. The conclusi

[Second Dispatch.] Nashville, Oct. 20. --The Bowling Green correspondent of the Union and American says that Henderson, Ky., is now occupied by 1,600 Indianians, and 1,500 more are expected.

Something about sugar. We find in the commercial column of the Memphis Appeal, of October 20th, the annexed statement of the price of sugar in New Orleans on the previous day, (the 19th,) and while it will afford consolation to buyers, we are not sure that it will be satisfactory to purchasers and consumers of sugar in this market: "There was a fair demand on Thursday, especially for the better grades, with sales of 600 barrels at 3 cents for low common, 3½ to 3¾ cents for mixed lots, 4½ to 5½ cents for fair to freely fair; these are the grades mostly used by consumers; 7 cents for yellow clarified and 10 cents for choice white." What does it cost to convey sugar from New Orleans to Richmond? Certainly nothing like the extreme price charged here by the merchant

Latest from Missouri. Gen. Price's force — movements of Gen. Fremont--Fremont's Removal and his Successor — a skirmish on Iron Mountain, &c St. Louis, Oct. 20. --A messenger from Gen. Fremont's headquarters at Warsaw reached Syracuse, Mo., of the 17th inst., and reported that Gen. Price had made a stand in Adair county, 25 miles from Osceola, with 25,000 well armed and disciplined troops, and a large force of militia. Gen. Fremont had begun preparations to lay a pontoon bridge across the Osage river, and it is supposed his army would cross on the night of the 16th inst. He intended to push forward and force Gen. Price to fight or retreat. A dispatch from Ironton, dated on the 17th inst., says that no other bridge than that on the Big river has been interfered with on the Iron Mountain railway. No rebels are known to be near the railway, but are reported to be in large force 25 miles below Ironton. Nothing definite, however, is known as to their numb
