tor was there. With a firmness equalled only by the eloquent appeal made for his fellow-citizens of the coming generation, he answered every argument against the proposition, and after a long debate the vote was taken and the proposition was carried. The schoolhouses were built and occupied. In the upper story of the southernmost one a Lowell High School was taught. Here I received, if not the most part, the best of all my educational teaching in my preparation for college. In the year 1830 another contest was made, and, as its result, the Lowell High School was established. The school began in December, 1830, in a little one-story wooden building about forty feet square, rudely fitted up. Here were assembled about fifty pupils whom their parents claimed to be sufficiently advanced to come within the purview of its teaching. The scholars were drawn together by the spirit of enterprise in their fathers, not one of them having been born in Lowell. At the risk of departing fro

ere hangs before me, in my library, a powder-horn, such as was worn by every soldier of that day. On it is engraved with his own knife, Zephaniah Butler his horn April ye 22, 1758. And Captain Zephaniah fought with Stark at Bennington. Then followed the Revolution, from 1775 to 1783, and one of my uncles was at Bunker Hill. The next generation saw the war of 1812 with Great Britain. In this war, my father, John Butler, commanded a company of light dragoons in the regular army. Next, in 1830, were the Spanish wars in Florida and the Gulf States, wherein General Taylor and General Jackson--then captains — so distinguished themselves. Next came the unpleasantness of 1861 to 1865, which, I think, in spite of the euphemism, might well be termed a war of our generation, and with which, it may be seen hereafter, I had somewhat to do. Therefore, believing that there could be no war in which a son of mine especially would not take a part in his generation, I had him educated at West

test foundation in Constitutional history. On the contrary, when the ill-omened doctrine of State nullification was sought to be sustained by the same argument in 1830, and the famous Virginia resolutions of 1798 were appealed to by Mr. Calhoun and his friends, as affording countenance to that doctrine, it was repeatedly and emphnstitution, the equal associate of Hamilton in recommending it to the People; its great champion in the Virginia Convention of 1788, and its faithful vindicator in 1830, against the deleterious heresy of nullification, could have been spared to protect it, at the present day, from the still deadlier venom of Secession! But he is minds of their authors but constitutional efforts to procure the repeal of obnoxious laws, matured in the minds of a later generation into the deadly paradoxes of 1830 and 1860-kindred products of the same soil, venenorum ferax;--the one asserting the monstrous absurdity that a State, though remaining in the Union, could by her s
antly exclaimed to each other that it was the finest apple they ever tasted. Some years after this, Col. Baldwin took several scions to a public nursery, and from this circumstance they named the apple after him, which name it has since retained. In the gale of September, 1815, this parent tree fell; but very few parents have left behind so many flourishing and beloved children. The price of land has steadily increased from 2s. an acre in 1635, and 5s. in 1689, to $50 in 1778 and $100 in 1830, the same positions taken in all the dates. From the year 1800 to the present time, favorite house-lots have advanced in price so rapidly that $2,000 would be refused for a single acre. The fashionable retreat from city to suburban life has induced the owners of farms to cut up into house-lots their tillage lands, and sell them at public auction; because no farmer can afford to till land that will sell at two and three cents the square foot. Of the farmers of Medford we have nothing but

of public worship and the current expenses of the ensuing year. On the same day, Voted to raise, in like manner, three hundred dollars, for the reduction of the parish debt. Dec. 7, 1847: Rev. Mr. Stetson having fallen from the sidewalk in Main Street, and much injured himself, the parish met, and passed the following vote: To take measures for the supply of his pulpit during his confinement, without trouble or expense to him. The parish expenses were as follows: In 1825, $1,208.16; in 1830, $1,235.35; in 1840, $1,701.24 ; in 1845, $2,348.01; in 1850, $1,523.21. The change of the law in Massachusetts respecting the support of ministers, and the consequent change of action in some parishes, had produced fatal results. One statute provides thus: No person shall hereafter be made a member of any parish or religious society without his consent in writing. The inhabitants of Medford were not exempt from the operation of these and similar causes. The Committee of the first paris

It was never a profitable branch of trade; and, till 1830, it ruined many persons who entered it. Since the temperance reformation, it has yielded great profits to the few who pursue it. The business demanded a larger investment of capital than any other manufacturing interest within the town. Agents were employed to purchase molasses in the West Indies; and schooners of the largest tonnage were often seen unlading at wharves on the borders of which the distilleries stood. Soon after 1830, all the distilleries but one were discontinued, and three of the buildings were demolished. In 1849, the efforts of temperance societies had so far influenced public opinion and the general habits as to diminish the use of rum to an extent almost fatal to the manufacturers of it. But about that time c

In these same years, Cambridge stands thus: In 1790, $25,291.-63; in 1800, $32,329.67; in 1810, $30,477.35; in 1820, $61,828.88; in 1830, $1,732,048; in 1840, $4,479,501.-43.

These tables of taxes prove how Medford, from small beginnings, gradually increased in numbers and wealth. There was never any sudden development of its resources, but a steadily increasing use of its natural advantages. Its march became more and more rapid as we approach the nineteenth century, when its increase and prosperity were equ
which is fifty per cent less, proportionally, than the expenses before an alms-house was used. This may help to explain a statement in the report of a committee on town-expenses in 1815, when they say, The revenue of the town has, fortunately, been more than sufficient to meet its expenditures. The males in the alms-house were put to mending our highways. The keeper of the house and the surveyor directed their labors; and it took them most. of their time to accomplish the whole work. In 1830, they did three hundred and ninety-one days labor on the public roads; and the cost of each pauper's support then was seventy-eight and one-half cents per week. In 1837, a proposition was made to purchase some land attached to that then owned by the town near the alms-house. After mature deliberation, the committee to whom it was referred reported against the measure. Since the erection of the new house in 1852, the town's poor have not increased, though every good care is taken of the
