ssachusetts, Hon. Isaac Parker, was elected, bearing the title, Royall Professor of law. This learned and worthy man gave a course of lectures immediately; and, when thus brought in contact with college and legal education, he suggested the establishment of a Law School at Cambridge. This recommendation was joyfully greeted; and, in 1817, the law school was established. Thus Colonel Royal was indirectly an originator of that school. Professor Parker held office for eleven years, and, in 1827, resigned. Hon. Asahel Stearns (brother of Dr. Stearns, of Medford) was then chosen, 1817, and served acceptably till 1829, when John Hooker Ashman succeeded. He died, in office, in 1833; and, in 1834, Hon. Simon Greenleaf was chosen, and performed his duties with eminent success. He resigned in 1848, and was succeeded by Hon. Theophilus Parsons, who is now in office. These distinguished jurisconsults have each paid a tribute of respect to the memory of Colonel Royal, of Medford, and ha
The names of the commanders of this long-respected and efficient company are as follows:-- Ephraim Hall (promoted to an aide-de-camp in 1790)1786 to 1790. Name unknown1790-1798. Andrew Hall1798-1803.

For the first twenty-five years of its existence, this company stood among the first for celerity and grace of drill-exercise and martial manoeuvre. It felt that it had a sort of brigade character to sustain; and the ambitious young men of Medford joined heartily to make it the banner corps of the county. In the war of 1812, this company was called to guard the powder-house, and did duty there for
onary authority to admit members from other churches, of whose Christian standing he is satisfied, without any public act. Dec. 2, 1827: The church voted that the Lord's Supper should be celebrated on the first sabbath of every other month. June 11, 1832: The church voted that the pastor, at his discretion, be authorized to receive persons into this church at a private interview; and that no public act shall be necessary to their membership, except propounding them in the usual form. 1827: Deacon Richard Hall bequeathed to this church the sum of seven hundred dollars, the interest of which should for ever be distributed among the poor women of this church. April 25, 1827: The parish voted to raise twelve hundred dollars, to pay the minister's salary and other current expenses. At the same meeting, voted to introduce the Cambridge Collection of hymns in place of Dr. Watts's! April 30, 1832: The subject of building a parsonage-house was discussed in a parish-meeting, a
was the ample brick square house, whose strong walls only are yet standing to support a new, expensive, and commodious country-seat. It is only justice to say, that this act of the town was suggested, and the work carried forward, through the, wisdom and energy of Isaac Brooks, Esq., who was indefatigable, as an overseer of the poor, in procuring every convenience and comfort for the inmates of the house that he consistently could. This house answered its purpose well for forty years. In 1827, the town voted to purchase eight acres of land adjoining the alms-house lot, at one hundred dollars per acre. In 1828, the project of purchasing a farm, as some towns had done, on which to employ the poor as laborers, came up for discussion; and so favorably did the inhabitants view it, that they voted to purchase as soon as a proper one could be found. No purchase was made; and in 1832 a committee is directed to sell the poorhouse, if they think it advisable. It is not done; and in 1837
