Gordon, William 1730-1807 Historian; born in Hitchin, England, in 1730; came to America in 1770; and was ordained at Roxbury in 1772. He took an active part in public affairs during the Revolution, and in 1778 the College of New Jersey conferred upon him the degree of doctor of divinity. Returning to England in 1786, he wrote and published a history of the Revolution, in 4 volumes, octavo. He died in Ipswich, England, Oct. 19, 1807.
aft The draft-rod, extending from the clevis to the sheth. Many modifications are found. The colter is sometimes a wing from the upper forward edge of the mold-board; or it is a cutting-wheel in advance. The draft-rod is not universal, but adds to the strength of the implement. The mold-board was, as its name indicates, formerly of wood. It was first made of iron by Small of Berwickshire, Scotland, about 1764. The chilled cast-iron plowshare was patented by Ransome of Ipswich, England, 1803. The under side and points are hardened, and the top wears away, leaving a comparatively thin edge of hard, chilled iron. This is an imitation of the provision of nature, whereby the teeth of the rodentiae are kept sharp, the external enamel keeping in advance of the softer parts which are sloped away from the cutting edge. The points to be aimed at in the construction and management of a plow are as follows:— A sharp, clean tapering form to the part which divides the soil
rd is to lay it over in required order. The share is the main, effective agent, and the others subsidiary. Sometimes, as in shovel-plows, the whole working portion is a share which cuts, lifts, and throws the furrow-slice. Ransome, of Ipswich, England, patented the castiron share in 1785. He patented the case-hardening of the upper edge in 1803, so that the share became self-sharpening. b. The blade in a seeding-machine or drill, which opens the ground for the reception of the seed.is valuable in the preparation and application of water-glass or soluble glass, we are indebted to Dr. Johann Fuchs, of Munich. He announced his success in 1825, and published a pamphlet shortly before his death, in 1856. Mr. Ransome, of Ipswich, England, has also contributed to the success of the process. It forms an essential ingredient of Ransome's artificial stone. It has been used in painting on glass; surfacing stone, wood, and other materials to render them water-proof; covering r

Mr. Garrison had paid a memorable visit: Immediately after the meeting at Exeter Hall, July 13, 1833. I rode to 2d Ann. Report N. E. A. S. S., p. 46. Ipswich to see Thomas Clarkson, accompanied by my esteemed friend, the Rev. Nathaniel Paul. Here it is proper to state in what manner the mind of this venerable philanthful attitude. Under these circumstances, little authority or value ought to be attached to his opinions in favor of the Society and its colony. On arriving at Ipswich, we found that we could easily gain access to Clarkson only through the medium of Alexander— of him whose mind we knew was strongly prejudiced against us both, in consequence of the flagrant misrepresentations of Mr. Cresson. But we did not hesitate to call upon him, and state the object of our visit to Ipswich. He treated us politely; and as Clarkson resided at Playford Hall, a distance of two or three miles from the town, he offered to postpone another engagement which he had made, and
n a certain day once a year: whereas the inhabitants have occasion to meet once a month, sometimes every week, for relief of the poor, or other Town-affairs. But it is easy to penetrate into the design of this law, which was (no question) to keep them in every town from complaining to England of the oppression they are under. And as laws have been established so moneys have been raised by the government in a most illegal and arbitrary way, without any consent of the people. The case of Ipswich is related. Several gentlemen in the country were imprisoned and bound to their good behavior, upon mere suspicion that they did encourage their neighbors not to comply with these arbitrary proceedings, and that so they might be sure to effect their pernicious designs, they have caused juries to be picked of men who are not of the vicinity, and some of them mere strangers in the country and no freeholders, which actings are highly illegal. One of the former magistrates was committed to pri
r granted and accepted Although Cambridge was early abandoned as the seat of government, it maintained from the beginning a prominent rank among the towns in the Colony. It was designated, before the establishment of counties, as one of the four towns in which Judicial Courts should be held. Having until that time exercised the whole power of the Colony, both legislative and judicial, the General Court ordered, March 3, 1635-6, That there shall be four courts kept every quarter; 1. at Ipswich, to which Neweberry shall belong; 2. at Salem, to which Saugus shall belong; 3. at Newe Towne, to which Charlton, Concord, Meadford, and Waterton shall belong; 4th, at Boston, to which Rocksbury, Dorchester, Weymothe, and Hingham shall belong. Every of these Courts shall be kept by such magistrates as shall be dwelling in or near the said towns, and by such other persons of worth as shall from time to time be appointed by the General Court, so as no court shall be kept without one magist

E. from Ipswich, England), where he obtained his living as rector 1609, and married 6 Jan. 1612 Elizabeth a sister of famous Dr. Ames, which gave him favor in the eyes of puritans, was desired to accept office here in several places, especially Cambridge, perhaps in connection with the newly begun College, but preferred to go home in the autumn of 1641. From Lamson's History of the first Church and Parish in Dedham, pp. 77-82, it would seem that Mr. Phillips did not take office in Dedham until 1640, the Lord o
