Mount Benedict was a beautiful eminence, with a varied and most delightful prospect reaching miles on every side, and it was surrounded by a community supposed to be as intelligent and orderly as any people. The pupils of these Ursuline sistittle more than that, had a large circulation among a certain class of people in that vicinity. On the flats below Mount Benedict, and not far from it, there were extensive brickyards where large numbers of men, mainly from the State of New Hampshnty-five miles away, and, in company with other young men, ascended Fort Hill, the highest eminence in Lowell, whence Mount Benedict could be easily seen with a glass, and whence the fire of the convent, between nine and ten o'clock that night, was v

ere he dismissed them to their march toward Bunker Hill. We all knew the spot where Washington took command of the army; and the house (the Craigie House) where he dwelt. We played the battle of Bunker Hill on the grass-grown redoubts built during the siege of Boston. Only one of these is left, the three-gun battery known as. Fort Washington, but there was a finer one on Putnam Avenue, where greenhouses now stand. More elaborate than any were those around the ruins of the convent on Mount Benedict in Somerville; they encircled the hill and could accommodate a regiment of schoolboys. Moreover, there still lingered one or two wounded veterans whom we eyed with reverence, chief of whom was Lowell's Old Joe : Old Joe is gone, who saw hot Percy goad His slow artillery up the Concord road- A tale which grew in wonder, year by year, As, every time he told it, Joe drew near To the main fight, till, faded and grown gray, The original scene to bolder tints gave way: Then Joe had heard

So, Attorney-General Austin, excusing the Alton riot by Lib. 7.202. the Boston tea-riot, recalled Peleg Sprague's pointing to that slaveholder, and drew the hot and crushing retort from Wendell Phillips, who followed him,— Sir, when I heard the gentleman lay down principles which Lib. 7.202. place the rioters, incendiaries, and murderers of Mt.

The gentleman said that he should sink into insignificance if he dared to gainsay the principles of these resolutions. Austin declared them the familiar doctrines of our

From this point the canal followed the line of the high land around to the short bend in the Mystic river, where Dunning's coal wharf is at present located; then to the south, through nearly the centre of the Broadway park; around the base of Mount Benedict,—now nearly dug away,—across the foot of Austin street, where the gate-house may still be seen; then nearly parallel to Main street, Charlestown, to the Neck, where it passed under Main street, through a lock and into the millpond. Most of eing little short of open sewers. Mr. Eddy's plan consisted in abolishing the levels betwen Billerica and Middlesex Village and Woburn and Charlestown, conducting the water of the canal from Woburn by thirty-inch iron pipes to a reservoir on Mount Benedict in Somerville, thence to be distributed over Boston, and possibly Charlestown and Cambridge. The water from the Concord river was analyzed by Dr. Charles T. Jackson, Professor John W. Webster, of Harvard University, S. L. Dana, of Lowell, an

They bore arms and were esteemed among the gentry. The immediate family, whence the Phipps of Charlestown derived issue, were of Wiltshire, where various members of the race are on record as sheriffs. Samuel Phipps, town clerk of Charlestown, and his neighbors dwelt within the present limits of Somerville, about 200 years ago, on Mt. Benedict. A portion of his homestead came within that part of the ploughed field which included the location of the Ursuline Convent of 1830.
