er mill, out of neck, house on Main street, smith shop and two tenements on Back street, one-fourth of a pew in the church, etc. His three surviving sons became iron founders. Their descendants settled largely in Malden, where the old soldier of the Long March, Jonathan, lived. Joseph Stimpson was the youngest son of Andrew and Abigail (Sweetser) Stimpson, housewright and shopkeeper. His grandfather Andrew was from Newcastle-on-Tyne, and wrote his name Steauenson. To-day it is called Stephenson, Stevenson, Stimson, and Stimpson. Joseph was graduated at Harvard in 1720, became a schoolmaster, studied divinity, was ordained and settled as pastor of the Second church, Malden, where he died in 1752. Joseph Sweetser, who married Rebecca Austin, was a currier, the only child of Joseph and Elizabeth (White) Austin, a heelmaker in Boston. He died early, leaving two sons, and his widow married Samuel Waite, and died in 1750. Samuel Trumbull was a tanner, son of the impressed seam

replenished on the way with both wood and water. Consequently the station at Woburn (now known as Walnut Hill) was for years called Woburn Watering Station. Great sheds 40 × 100 ft. were then located on either side the tracks and filled with cord wood sawed twice in two by horse power machines; while in the hill above was a great cistern from which the water was supplied to the engine tank. The original engine is said to have been given (in England) the name of the noted English engineer Stephenson. It somehow acquired the nickname (from people along the route) of John Bull. The second was named Patrick in honor of the president of the road, Patrick T. Jackson. The proposition to call it Jackson did not meet with favor from the Whig proprietors, as Old Hickory had a more than local reputation, so Patrick it was, as a compromise. It was the custom of those days and is still in some sections to name an engine, as now are the Pullman cars, warships, and merchant vessels. In t

Sad case. --Mr. Stephenson, the eminent Boston sculptor, became suddenly deranged last week, and was conveyed to an insane asylum, where he has since died. He had a great enthusiasm for his art, and he doubtless employed himself too severely.

Island ports of entry. --The Secretary of the Treasury of the Confederate States publishes the following important notices of points at which ports of entry have been established: Norfolk, at Nelms' Landing on the Mississippi River; Hernando, on the Mississippi and Central Railroad; Holly Springs, on the Mississippi Central Railroad; Eastport, on the Tennessee River; Corinth, at the crossing of the Mobile and Ohio, and of the Memphis and Charleston Railroads; Athens, on the railroad from Decatur to Pulaski; Stephenson, at the junction of the Memphis and Charleston, and of the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroads; Atlanta, at the junction of the Georgia Railroad, the Western and Atlantic, and various other railroads; Chester at the junction of the Charlotte and Columbia and of the King's Mountain Railroad Florence, at the junction of the Wilmington and Manchester, and of the Northeastern and of the Cheraw and Darlington Railroads.
Outrageous Robbery. --A few nights ago, Miss Stephenson, living with her uncle (Capt. Gracle) in Pittsburg, Pa.,was awakened by persons in her room, who were evidently intent on the robbing of her trunks. She lay awake quietly and heard them. One suggested that she might wake up; the other said, "apply the stuff, then;" the first and more timid remonstrated lest it might kill her; "well," said the other, "let it kill her, then." So the vial of chloroform was emptied on her face and head, sickening without stupefying her. She had already discovered that the leader was her own brother, and after they had got her watch, diamond pin, jewelry and-most of her money, (some $60 being undiscovered) they went off, and she followed them, calling her brother back in vain. Next day she had them arrested and locked up. Her brother is only about fifteen years old, and was attending school in that city.
From Washington. Washington, June 26 --It is thought that a change in the programme will result from the conference of yesterday, and that a forward movement will soon occur. Secretary Chase will recommend a moderate revision of the tariff. The New York Post's Washington dispatch says that leading Congressmen have determined to confine legislation to the war, and that all reports about the compromise disposition of the Government are false. It is rumored that the Sewell's Point battery fired on a reconnoitering party, killing eight, and wounding many. The following Virginias have been stricken from the roll of the army: Capt. Maury, Gen. Stephenson, and Lieut. Dillon.
parson Breckinridge and partisan Prentice. This was the artful dodge by which those cunning men beguiled over from the ranks of the Secessionists proper, the great body of the good people of Kentucky. This is the delusive bait by which they have succeeded in hooking a great and gallant Commonwealth into the toils of Lincoln. This is the net which they have thrown over the limbs of the Secession party there, and prevented them from following John C. Breckinridge, Magoffin, Powell, Burnett, Stephenson, Brown, and the other true men who would have led them into the Southern Confederacy. The time has passed for the secession of Kentucky. Crittenden and Prentice and Guthrie have done their evil work. The people have been beguiled and deceived by a honeyed word cunningly contrived for their undoing. All further proceedings in Kentucky must be revolutionary, violent and convulsive. There is no legal path by which it is possible now to extricate her from her constitutional association
