oddess please you, What idol graven images you bend your wicked knees to. But why should I of evil dream, well knowing at your head goes That flower of Christian womanhood, our dear good Anna Meadows, She'll be discreet, I'm sure, although once, in a freak romantic, She flung the Doge's bridal ring, and married The Atlantic! And spite of all appearances, like the woman in a shoe, She's got so many Young Folks now, she don't know what to do. But I must say I think it strange that thee and Mrs. Spaulding, Whose lives with Calvin's five-railed creed have been so tightly walled in, Should quit your Puritan homes, and take the pains to go So far, with malice aforethought, to walk in a vain show Did Emmons hunt for pictures? Was Jonathan Edwards peeping Into the chambers of imagery, with maids for Tammuz weeping? Ah well! the times are sadly changed, and I myself am feeling The wicked world my Quaker coat from off my shoulders peeling. God grant that in the strange new sea of change where

they were forwarded according to the ordinary routine prevailing in the departments. The pontoniers, commanded by Captain Spaulding, had arrived in Washington on the 15th. Forty-eight boats, carrying the flooring and forming two equipages, each sunt with the twenty boats that had to follow the land route. The departure of this convoy, under the supervision of Captain Spaulding, was subjected to all sorts of delays. At the relay stations there were no teams in readiness for this service; th beyond the village of Dumfries. It would have required three weeks to reach Falmouth at this rate of travelling. Captain Spaulding sent to Washington for a steamer, which came to meet him at the entrance of the Occoquan into the Potomac. Rafts w General Woodbury committed a serious mistake in not forwarding the two complete equipages by water, and in despatching Spaulding's convoy with a load which could not fail to render the trip impossible at that season of the year.

's side from George Blanchard, the first permanent settler in that part of Medford now called Wellington. Her father was for many years the sexton of the First Trinitarian Church of Medford, and in childhood and youth she attended that church, but in April, 1867, she united, on confession of faith, with the Mystic (Congregational) Church; thereafter she was devoted to its interests and benevolences. In her young womanhood she was forewoman in the cloak-making department of the store of Spaulding, Hay and Wales of Boston. Later she bought the millinery business formerly conducted by Mrs. Cameron in Usher's Building, High street, Medford. She continued this occupation until failing health necessitated giving up business activity. She was small and alert, and even after ill health and the burden of years had aged her, quick of motion and repartee. She was much interested in local history, and as regularly as her health permitted attended the meetings of the Medford Historical S

not the toll house as stated. The toll house stood near the Nunnery grounds, full one-half mile or more nearer Boston. When I was a boy, my people lived on the turnpike near Peck's hat factory; at that time the toll house was occupied by a Mr. Spaulding, who was not only the toll gatherer but attended to the repairs on the road. I knew Mr. Spaulding and also his boys; later a Mr. Perkins lived in the toll house, and was toll gatherer and road repairer. I was also acquainted with the occupMr. Spaulding and also his boys; later a Mr. Perkins lived in the toll house, and was toll gatherer and road repairer. I was also acquainted with the occupants of the old mill house. About the year 1840 it was occupied by a Mr. Woodbridge, and I attended school with his boys on Back (Union) street. I also knew the Cutter family when they lived in the old house, and I can safely assert that the old mill house as shown in connection with Mr. Swan's sketch was not the toll house. Another error is, in leading one to infer from the legend Ten Hill Farm, first residence of Governor Winthrop, 1630 that the plot of land near the river was the farm a
Timely present. --The State has recently been the recipient of a very pretty allegorical picture, sent hither from New York. It is entitled "The Past and Present of the United States of North America," and was presented to the Public State Library of Virginia, at Richmond, by Mr. Jas. Meyer, Jr., of New York. It is neatly encompassed by a gilt frame, and measures about 40 by 52 inches. Clay, Webster, Calhoun, and others, as well as the patriots of the olden time, figure in different attitudes, appropriate to the several scenes into which they are introduced. Judging the picture from the effect produced on the beholders, we should call it an invocation to Union. It was executed in Switzerland — the land of Tell; yet even its potent influence, nor Spaulding's prepared glue, would be efficacious in preserving "the Union" in these times.
Wool was hailed by the troops as a favorable change, and he was received by a salute of thirteen guns. [correspondence of the Associated Press.] Fortress Monroe, August 16. --General Butler yesterday assumed the responsibility of paying the New York regiments here about $20,000, which had been deposited some time at Old Point awaiting the arrival of a paymaster. The ship Fair Wind, of Boston, with a cargo of guano, was this morning towed up the Roads by the steamer S. R Spaulding, in a disabled condition, having been ashore at Hog Island. The British ship-of-war Gladiator was yesterday cruising off the Capes. A flag of truce yesterday conveyed Mr. Whalen, former U. S. Minister to Nicaragua, to the Confederates' pickets beyond New Market bridge. A flag of truce is just in from Norfolk, with Corporal Hulburt, of the First Connecticut Regiment, released by the Confederates for his attention to Colonel Gardiner, after the battle of Bull Run. He states t
the present receipts from customs. This whole tax, large as it may seem, is only the one hundred and seventh part of the value of the resources upon which it is to be levied, or considerably less than one per cent. Taking the most gloomy view possible of the war, and giving the widest margin for expenditure, let the period for the pacification of the South be extended to the 1st of July, 1863, and let the cost be one billion and two hundred millions of dollars, ($1,200,000,000,) as Mr. Spaulding calculates it, which is three hundred millions ($300,000,000) more than the estimate of Mr. Chase, it would not break us if we were to pay the whole amount during the next twenty years. It would be only three and one eighth per cent. per annum upon what we are worth. But when it is raised gradually in the form and manner proposed, it will not be felt by this great and vigorous young nation. Let it be spread, not only over the whole of the real estate of the country, but the personal,

Prentiss will notify the prisoners of the decision of the Commission in their respective cases, and warn them to prepare for the execution. He will see that the prisoners are thoroughly guarded, so as to prevent the possibility of escape. Any one attempting to escape will be instantly shot down. Federal finances — necessity of immediate action--Secretary Chase on the subject. In a note to Mr. Spaulding, Secretary Chase says, "immediate action" in Congress. "Immediate action is of great importance. The treasury is nearly empty. I have been obliged to draw for the last instalment of the November loan. So soon as it is paid I fear the banks generally will refuse to receive the U. S. Treasury notes. You will see the necessity of urging the bill through without delay." In another letter, to the Committee of Ways and Means, Mr. Chase says: The condition of the Treasury certa
