it retrieves the fight, without, however, being able to get beyond the trenches, while Logan is menacing Stevenson's left flank. The latter is compelled to place Barton's brigade in a triangular position: pressed on all sides, and having only Cummings' and Lee's brigades left to defend a position which was no doubt a fine one, but too extended for the forces at his command, he instantly calls for assistance. In order to relieve him, Pemberton orders Bowen and Loring to make a vigorous attack The labors of the besiegers, therefore, were seldom seriously interrupted, and their losses in the trenches were very trifling. We can mention but one vigorous sortie in the whole course of these operations. In the night of the 22d of June, Cummings' brigade of Stevenson's division surprised Herron's men at work near the Hall's Ferry road, destroying their trenches and making twelve prisoners. But this was an isolated exploit, and the Confederates did not actively interfere to delay the wor
t no railroad was dreamed of when this boy came to his grandfather's to live. He described his grandparents as very pious, and kind and affectionate to him, his grandmother especially so. Because of old associations they worshipped in the old meeting-house at Menotomy, but when his mother (and sister) came to Medford and lived in the old Bucknam house, she was taken into the Medford church and all her children baptized by Dr. Osgood who was a friend and contemporary of her grandfather, Dr. Cummings of Billerica. Thereafter William's Sunday school days were divided between Menotomy and Medford, where such an institution was then something new. Miss Lucy Osgood directed it and Miss Elizabeth Brooks was his teacher. Another innovation in William Warren's boyhood was the first stove in the Medford meeting-house in the winter of 1820. As his mother did not come till two years later, chances are that he went to Menotomy with grandsire Warren, and so did not witness the novel installati
ved the stress of the years and enjoyed the reunion, is worthy of notice in Medford annals. They were Aldermen William Cushing Wait, Walter F. Cushing, Lewis H. Lovering and J. R. Teel, with Richard Gibson, E. C. Ellis, George T. Sampson, Herman L. Buss, William H. Casey, Allston H. Evans, N. E. Wilber, E. F. Kakas, Charles H. Loomis and E. I. Langell, of the council. As their former clerk Langell called the roll, fitting notice was taken of Those who answer not, however we may call. Auditor Cummings and Collector Hayes were guests of the evening. After the dinner came the smoke talk with everybody in it and a final word by chairman Loomis to close the First Session. Judge Wait presided over the Second Session opening court (?) with words of greeting. Councilman Evans paid tribute to Medford by reading original verses:-- Medford. There's a Medford in Wisconsin, And there's also one in Maine, And in Maryland for Medford We do not look in vain. Even Oklahoma Boasts a Medford of
f such halls as the taverns afforded, notably that earlier of Hezekiah Blanchard, and then and later, the Medford House. To those who forsook the stately meeting-house up old High street, and turned into the lane (now Ashland street) and climbed the stairs to the second floor of Mr. Francis' bake-house that summer day, the contrast must have been great. Perhaps it was too great, as only two Sabbaths were spent there, and better quarters secured. Again this quotation tells us where. Mr. Cummings in his excellent paper only says— A hall in the neighborhood was fitted up. This bake-house room was later used in the gold-beating business and finally demolished in 1896. It was of brick, substantially built, and served its purpose well. But there was another old brick house, in recent years demolished, on Ship street, called the College, where in 1822 some people not of the old Medford church assembled. More unsuited for such purpose than the bake-house was this dwelling, and
the early morning of September 24, 1925, he passed quietly away from us. Born in New Haven, Conn., May 19, 1853, he came in early life with his parents to Medford, his grandfather being one of the old Medford granite workers. His education was in the Medford schools. He graduated from the High School in 1870, then in one of the adjoining buildings, now the Centre School. He was president of the High School Association, formed soon after, which published the School History, by Principal Cummings. After a course in Bryant & Stratton business college he was in the accounting department of the Boston & Lowell R. R., and for thirty-eight years with the American Board of Foreign Missions. His was the particular duty of shipment of supplies to distant missionaries. He served our city faithfully on its School Board for several years. In his early youth he joined the Trinitarian Church on High street, and in 1872 he became a a charter member (perhaps the youngest) of the West Medfo
to the Macon (Ga.) Telegraph, of the 16th, from a member of the Jackson Artillery, stationed at Fort Brown, Ga.: On Tuesday morning a schooner was discovered off Jekyll Point, which soon showed a disposition to pass us without calling. Lt. Cummings was the officer of the day, and in a few minutes he had the guns manned and a ball whistling across the bow of the craft.--This the schooner did not heed, but a shell from one of our howitzers passing uncomfortably near her bow brought her to as quick as possible. A boat was lowered and the Captain came ashore with the crown of his hat full of papers. To Lieut Cummings' inquiry why he did not show a flag, he answered that he had none on board but a United States flag, which he supposed was not worth much.--The Lieutenant answered, "not a d--," and after examining his papers invited him to the officers' quarters and then dismissed him. Today we have overhauled two more schooners, but have found them all right and let them go on thei
Visit to the fortifications. --Brigadier General Beauregard, in company with his Excellency Gov. Pickens, who was accompanied by several of his Aids, visited Fort Johnson, Cummings' Point Battery and Morris' Island Battery, on Monday morning. They returned about six o'clock in the evening. --We learn that Gen. Beauregard was very much struck with the great amount of work that had been done and the general progress and strength of the fortifications. They did not visit Fort Moultrie, but Gen. Beauregard expressed perfect confidence that Fort Sumter could be reduced, and that it was a question only of time.--Charleston Courtier.
Railroad accident. --As a train on the Dubuque and Western Railroad was backing up from Anamosa to Springville, Iowa, on the 9th inst., the rear freight car ran off the track, throwing Mr. Cummings, conductor, and Mr. Smith, engineer, who were on top of the car, to the ground. The train passed over both, killing them instantly. A man named Wm. Slow was severely injured.
