n he married, November 1, 1786, Hannah Breed of Charlestown. Acting on the old adage of procuring a cage before securing the bird, he had erected the substantial dwelling on High street, at the corner of Powder house road, that was for the remainder of his life his home, and for years after that of his daughters, Mary and Lucy. Among his papers was preserved a statement of its cost. It may be of interest to such as know the relative value of old tenor, as compared with the currency of 1785, which, by the way, Dr. Osgood expressed in English money (as this was prior to the adoption of the Constitution), to compare this with another in this issue. In this, there is nothing of a raising. Without doubt there was one, with abundance of refreshment, both solid and liquid. What among the thousand little expenses, stitwork was, will some one tell? By the kindness of Mrs. DeLong, long resident there, we have this copy to present: 1785 The most material expenses in build'g an

dford in a much earlier time had many attractions to draw here those who were looking for a home. Timothy Fitch, merchant of Nantucket and Boston, and one-time owner of the Watson house, and Abigail Donnahew of Medford were married by the Rev. Ebenezer Turell, August 19, 1746. There were several daughters by this marriage, and Hannah married Joseph Barrel of Boston, November 26, 1771. John Brown Fitch of Boston and Hepziah Hall of Medford were married by Rev. David Osgood, January 27, 1785. In this marriage triangle of the Barrel, Fitch and Hall families we understand why Joseph Barrel, Jr., became a resident of our town. He married Electa Bingham of Boston, also given as of Stockbridge, the Rev. S. West performing the ceremony July 5, 1795. (Register, Vol. XIX, p. II.) Hannah Barrel, sister of Joseph, Jr., was married by the Rev. Jedediah Morse of Charlestown, February 8, 1798, to Benjamin Joy, a well-known physician of Boston. The senior Barrel was a well-known weal
The late Judge McLean. --The telegraph has announced the death of the Hon. John McLean, of Ohio, one of the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge McLean has been for some time past in feeble health, but when he recently left Washington city for his home was supposed to have in some degree recovered. Judge McLean was a native of New Jersey, where he was born in 1785, but removed at a very early age to the Western country. He went to Congress from Cincinnati district in 1812, and was returned in 1814, by a unanimous vote from his constituents. In 1816 he became a Supreme Judge of Ohio; in 1822 he was appointed Commissioner of the Land Office by President Madison, and in 1823 he became Postmaster General. In 1829 he was appointed Judge of the Supreme Court by President Jackson, having previously declined the War and Navy Departments which were tendered to him. In this latter position, as is known, he continued until his death.

duty bound to secure to them. In more modern times the tendency of nations has been towards the discontinuance of this mode of warfare. The United States, from the foundation of the Government, has acted persistently on the principle that private property should be exempt from capture by armed vessels, and has lost no opportunity to impress upon the nations with which it was in diplomatic intercourse the importance of prohibiting this mode of warfare by treaty stipulations. As early as 1785, in concluding a treaty with Prussia, it was stipulated that "all merchant and trading vessels employed in the exchange of the products of different places, and thereby rendering the necessaries, conveniences, and comforts of human life more easy to be obtained and more general, shall be allowed to pass free and unmolested; and neither of the contracting powers, shall grant or issue any commission to any private armed vessels, empowering them to take or destroy such trading vessels or interru
s to express the villainy of the late Frenchified ministry! Stanhope said "he wondered that men who were guilty of such enormous crimes (as the gentlemen opposite,) had still the audaciousness to appear in the public streets." Another member, commenting on a recent increase in the salaries of the Judges, said it was "for services not rendered, but expected." Still, malversation and peculations gradually disappeared, and party disputes and debates became less acrimonious, As late, however, as 1785, the discreditable peace of Paris was actually bought, vote by vote, with hard cash, at prices varying from £200 and upwards. Twenty-five thousand pounds are said to have been thus paid away in a single morning. It was only a little after the year 1822 that the political atmosphere of Great Britain approached its present comparative purity. With the commencement of that reform era, a new genius seemed to preside ever the councils of the British nation, factions became less mischievous, and

overnment, but which were captured and confiscated at New Orleans by Picayune Butler, were sold at auction, on the 30th ult., at Boston. A Northern journal says: The sale was numerously attended. There were 418 bells in all. The greater part of them were cast at the Buckeye foundry, Cincinnati, though many were from foundries at New York, West Troy, Pittsburg, and Louisville. Among the number were several Catholic bells, cast in France--one with the inscription, "Fait par Jean Bagin, 1785," over a cross; another, cast at Nantes, France, 1786; others cast in 1775, 1776, and 1783. One, very elaborately ornamented, from the First Presbyterian Church, Shrevesport, La. Col. Thompson, before beginning the sale, read a note from a Mr. De Peyster, of Duchess county, N. Y., who desired the privilege of purchasing a bell which he gave several years ago to the Episcopal Church at Nacogdoches, Texas, founded by a friend of his, Rev. Thomas Bacon, who was driven from the place on account o
furth, and the invasion of Spain, the invasion of Russia, and the invasion of France, the downfall of Napoleon and the Treaty of Vienna, the formation of the Holy Alliance, and the visit of the Sovereigns to England. All these mighty events he witnessed; in all of them he was deeply interested, and of all the actors who played their part in the stupendous drama, he was the last. Prince Leopold, of Saxe-Cobourg, was born in the hereditary dominions of his father some where about the year 1785. When the torrent of invasion swept over Germany, in 1806, he was a man, grown, and did the part of a man and a prince in resisting the invader. To all appearances, Germany was subdued. It is probable, at least, that he thought so; for we find from Napoleon's conversations at St. Helena that he was at one time desirous to become one of his aids. He seems to have been wretchedly poor; for when the allied sovereigns made their celebrated visit to London, in 1814, after the downfall of Napol
