shall propound to this honored Court for erecting of bridges contrary to what is here present,--we are ready to give further account to this Court why the county should be no further charged that way. And, whereas it appears to us that Concord, Sudbury, and Lancaster are at a greater charge in bridges for the public use of the country than some other of their neighbor towns, we conceive it meet that they be abated as followeth: Concord and Lancaster all their rates, whether paid or to be paid, to those two bridges above named, and Sudbury the one-half of their rates to the said bridges, and their abatements to be satisfied to the undertakers of those bridges, or repaid again to such as have paid, as followeth: i.e., Chelmsford, two pounds; Billerica, one pound; Charlestown, ten pounds; Meadford, two pounds; and what these shall fall short of satisfying those above-mentioned abatements, made up out of the county stock, either fines or otherwise, as the Court shall please to determine

Parris, Samuel 1653-1720 Clergyman; born in London, England, in 1653; was first a merchant and then a minister.

He acknowledged his error and was dismissed. He preached in various places afterwards, but was an unhappy wanderer, and died in Sudbury, Mass., Feb. 27, 1720.

ss constitutional questions from the highest stand-point, and, more than all, an invincible defender of the colored race. Accordingly, on the 24th day of April he was elected, for six years from the 4th of March following, as the successor of Mr. Webster to the senatorial chair; having had, on the twenty-fifth and last ballot in the House, a hundred and. ninety-three votes, the exact number necessary to a choice. It is said that the turning vote was cast by the late Capt. Israel Haynes of Sudbury, a lifelong Democrat, who voted for Mr. Sumner only on the day of his election, and then simply, as he affirmed, on principle, and because he believed him to be the better man. The votes used at this twenty-fifth ballot were preserved by the Hon. Otis Clapp, who, in April, 1873, presented them to the New-England Historic-Genealogical Society, where they now remain. Although some thought this triumph of the progressive party would carry with it serious disaster to the Union, The evening

d at this meeting the charter was accepted. Subscriptions for the stock were opened, and a board of directors elected as follows: James P. Chaplin, William Hillard, Newell Bent, Levi Farwell, William Fiske, John Trowbridge, Charles Everett, Isaiah Bangs, and S. P. P. Fay. Judge Fay declined to serve, and at a later meeting, March 31, Asahel Stearns was elected in his place. The bank was capitalized at $150,000, and the stock was taken by residents of Boston, Natick, Watertown, Brighton, Sudbury, and many of the towns of eastern Massachusetts, but the larger portion was placed in Cambridge. In 1833, shortly after the organization of the Charles River Bank, it was voted to reduce the capital stock to $100,000, and in the following year, 1834, the reduction was made. It has remained at this figure ever since, although there were attempts made to raise the capital to $150,000 in 1853, and to $200,000 in 1854. The board of directors held its first meeting March 27, at the house of

the jurymen, pledging them to have no conscientious scruples against convicting, so that it seemed as if every one with a particle of anti-slavery sympathy must have been ruled out. Years after, Dana encountered by accident the very juryman — a Concord blacksmith-whose obstinacy had saved his client; and learned that this man's unalterable reason for refusing to condemn was that he himself had taken a hand in the affair, inasmuch as he had driven Shadrach, after his rescue, from Concord to Sudbury. See Adams's Life of Dana, i. 27. The story there is related from Mr. Adams's recollection, which differs in several respects from my own, as to the way in which Dana used to tell it. Possibly, as with other good raconteurs, the details may have varied a little as time went on. I write with two Ms. narratives before me, both from well-known Concord men. I fear I must admit that while it would have been a great pleasure to me to have lent a hand in the Shadrach affair, the feeling di
