Chandler, Zachiariah 1813-1879 Legislator; born in Bedford, N. H., Dec. 10, 1813; settled in Detroit, Mich., in 1833.

hat exhibited by Horace Greeley, must be accounted very extraordinary. That his neighbors so accounted it, they are still eager to attest. Continually the wonder grew, that one small head should carry all he knew. There were not wanting those who thought that superior means of instruction ought to be placed within the reach of so superior a child. I have a somewhat vague, but very positive, and fully confirmed story, of a young man just returned from college to his father's house in Bedford, who fell in with Horace, and was so struck with his capacity and attainments that he offered to send him to an academy in a neighboring town, and bear all the expenses of his maintenance and tuition. But his mother could not let him go, his father needed his assistance at home, and the boy himself is said not to have favored the scheme. A wise, a fortunate choice, I cannot help believing. That academy may have been an institution where boys received more good than harm—where real knowl

is far from their house; they had never experienced themselves, nor witnessed at their earlier homes, a similar scene; the blow was unexpected; and mingled with their sense of shame at being publicly degraded, was a feeling of honest rage at the supposed injustice of so summary a proceeding. It was a dark day; but it passed, as the darkest day will. An arrangement was made with the creditors. Mr. Greeley gave up his own farm, temporarily, and removed to another in the adjoining town of Bedford, which he cultivated on shares, and devoted principally to the raising of hops. Misfortune still pursued him. His two years experience of hop-growing was not satisfactory. The hop-market was depressed. His own farm in Amherst was either ill managed or else the seasons were unfavorable. He gave up the hop-farm, poorer than ever. He removed back to his old home in Amherst. A little legal manoeuvring or rascality on the part of a creditor, gave the finishing blow to his fortunes; and, i

The pledge then so freely taken was something like this: So here we pledge perpetual hate, To all that can intoxicate. The foregoing account was written for me by Jacob W. Manning of Reading, the well-known nurseryman, a few years before his death, as being possibly of some interest to Medford people. Mr. Manning was born in Bedford, N.
