in lonesomeness when the Somerville House was destroyed by fire, leaving its massive chimneys as gaunt reminders. Across the railroad track in Medford was erected the Willow bridge house, which accommodated the drovers and cattlemen who came down from the north weekly. After the departure of the cattle market to Brighton this house remained in its decadence till during last year it was torn down and a big modern garage there erected. Equally lonely was the tract beyond Quarry hill till in 1869 the Boston & Lowell railroad laid its tracks from Somerville junction to its purchased Arlington and Lexington road. A little village called West Somerville began to grow around the railway station and extend itself compactly to Cambridge line and up onto both Spring and Walnut hills. In the late sixties a little chapel was built near the entrance to the old quarry. Removed toward Davis square for a time, it was brought back again, and later moved down and across Broadway, somewhat enlarged

ward Brooks, son of Peter Chardon Brooks, senior. The delta, at the meeting of High and Grove streets, was laid out by the latter, and for many years after him the trees and shrubs were kept in order by his son and grandson. In the collection of silver belonging to the First Parish church are two silver flagons presented by him in 1823. It was the same benefactor who built in 1846 the granite wall along the east side of the old burying ground, where so many of his ancestors lie buried. In 1869, Mrs. Ellen Brooks, widow of Gorham Brooks, with her two sons, Shepherd and Peter C. the third, gave both land and church edifice to Grace Episcopal church. In 1897 the Commonwealth received from the latter a gift of forty acres of land once owned by the Middlesex Canal Corporation, now a part of the Mystic Valley parkway. The Whitmore brook reservation was created in 1901 out of land presented to the Commonwealth by Peter C. and Shepherd Brooks. Brooks road, on the east side of the South
at two o'clock in the morning. The cans were loaded on the wagon and the daily milk was delivered to the hotels and paid for every day at the rate of four pence, half penny a quart, or fifty cents a can. About 1854 the farm was laid out in house lots, but the enterprise did not flourish until twenty years later, when the Middlesex avenue bridge was completed. The growth was slow until the Fellsway line of the Elevated road was completed. Since then it has been rapidly increasing. In 1869 there were but seven houses on the farm. They were: Blanchard (old house); house corner Middlesex and Riverside avenues; Mansion house, Bradbury avenue; J. E. Wellington's, Middlesex avenue; yellow house on Third street, in rear of new school house; Davis house, corner Middlesex avenue and Fourth street; Clover house, corner Riverside avenue, opposite Hall. After the bridge was finished seven more were built, all within two or three years. They were: Thompson house, Third street; Wood hou

Of these to importations, England imported in 1859 2,829,000 bales, against 416,000 imported be France; in 1860 3,368,000 bales, against 685,000 imported by France; in 1861, 3,035,000, against 604,000 imported by France The amount of cotton consumed in all Europe has reached these amounts during the last six years: 1856 3,627,000 bales; 1867 3,079,000; 858,3. 16,000: 1869. 2,651,000; 1868, 4,224,000; 1881. 3,811,110 bales. in 1859: England consumed 2,294,000 bales, against 526,000 consumed in France; 1860, 2,638,000, against 621,000; 1861, 2,253,000 against 578,000. The diminution which took place in 1861 was owing rather to the anticipation of a deficit of the raw material in 1862, in consequence of the American civil war, and to advance in price of manufactured articles, than to a decreased demand on the part of consumers. The price of Middling Orleans cot
The Lincoln Glee Club then gave "Lincoln and Union" with great acceptation. Mr Isaac N Arnold, a member of Congress from Illinois, pronounced the gorilla to be the "Great Apostle of Liberty," and said: It is his mission to restore national unity, on the basis of universal liberty. He is to lead the people through this revolution and preserve the old safe guard of freedom embodied in Magna Charia and the Constitution of the United States. When he leaves the Presidential chair, in 1869, we are to be one people, one nation, and every man secured in the enjoyment of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Every man equal before the law. --Every man enjoying liberty of speech, the freedom of the press, trial by jury, and the writ of habeas corpus. [Cheers.] From the day of the commencement of the public life of Mr Lincoln, his life has been consecrated to one purpose — that of freeing his country from African slavery. If slavery is, as has been said dead, then Abraham
complete as to dispense with the necessity of fighting another battle? Another objection, that he did not the day before the battle send a heavy force around one of the Russian wings, was also answered by him on the field, when Davoust offered to conduct it with his corps of 40,000 men. His objection was that Davoust would necessarily pose communication with the main body, and thus expose himself to destruction.--This was consistent with all his practice.--In order to units all his forces in 1869 before attacking the enemy in the neighborhood of Ratisbon, he made this same Davonat evacuate that city, and bring his force to his on the flank of the Archduke's march. He accomplished it with great difficulty, and the whole force was united. Now, it seems, when the whole army was already united, Napoleon was to send off one-third of it, and thus expose himself to attack in detail.--Such, at least, was the opinion of Segur, and of Marment, too. The policy which, on a former occasion, had
