DE. BENJAMIN TDSTEN.
Tbe Ideal American Citizen, Patriot,
Hero nud M?rtjrSuiscoii.
(From the Independent Republican, Goshen,
On ?he first day of July 1S06, was organized
In the village of Goshen. "The Orange County
Aledleal Society," composed ot twenty-two
physicians residlog in tbe several townships
ol tbe county. Consequently, tl>e next an
nual meeting of this venerable society will be
Us centennial convocation. An appropriate
feature of its commemoration will be a
recognition of tbe notable men of tbe profes
sion who have graced tbe medical annals ol
the county, particularly during the earlier
period of its history. 1 have chosen as my
subject of memoir Dr. Benjamin Tusten, who
stands primus In distinction on tbe roll ol
practitioners of tbe healing art Inclusive ol
all the physicians and surgeous who have in
any field, and at anv time, pursued that
honored calling In Orauge County. From
reliable data, 1 am able to present In this
sketch the salient facts In the life history ol
the eminent man whose Illustrious career a
essay briefly to depict.
Benjamiu Tusten was a native of Soutb
old, L. I., where be was born, Dec. 11, 1"43.
He was the only son of Benjamin Tusten, ?
respectable farmer of that piace. His fatliei
removed to Orange County in the year 1740.
and settled on tbe banks of tbe Otterkill, two
and a hall miles irom the village ol Goshen,
on the highway leading lo Newburgb, via
Wasblngtonvllie, on what is now the place
occupied by Mrs. James A. Price. The sub
ject ol our sketch was educated at an acade
my In Jamaica, L. I., and at nlneteeu years
ot age commenced the study ol medicine un
der Dr. Thomas WlcKbam, of Goshen, whose
standing as a physician was very high lu his
day. Alter spending a year with L?r. Wlck
ham he went to Newark, is'. J., and spent
another year ander X)r. Bennet, and a third
year In the office 01 l>r. Thomas Jones, 01
Worn V/Milr T r* 1 ho PWflimprt hmnft RLltl
commenced practice iu oompeiitlou with Dr.
Wlckham, Dr. Gale and Dr. Plerson, and
soon perlormed several operation* In sur
gery which gave him a high degree 01
celebrity. Dr. Tusteu was mild, modest, anu
unassuming In his manners, pleasant to hit
patients, and affable to a 1.
, If the good which a man has done may be
measured by the number ol lives which have
been saved through his agency, It must bt
admitted without dispute, that the greatest
benefactor the world has known in any age.
or In any vocation or rank whatever, was Dr.
Jenner, tbe dlsooverer of the protective powei
of cowpox against that once dreaded scourge,
the smallpox, and tbe author of the practice
of vaccination. The date ol that grand dis
covery, which teuds to glorify alike so dis
tinguished^ its author and the annals of the
medical prolesslon In our era, was in the
year 1798. Previous to this discovery of pre
ventive method of averting the danger ol
Belzure of the malady in question .on expos J
ure to iu contagious hazards, such procedure |
had never engaged the thoaght ol physicians.
The problem which addressed liseil to tbe
earnest, inquiring minds ol medical men J
was this: nurna trial of feasible, raiiuuai
method, whereby, perchance, the viruleuce
and fatality of this loathsome disease, small
pox, might be mitigated. With this object
in view, the experiment was resorted to 01
innocuiaiion of toe virus of smallpox liseli
into the systems of those who had nofpre
vlously been exposed to the risks ot the
malady, and might never be thus exposed.
This certainly was a bold proposltiun, and
naturally encountered a strong protest on tne
part of the more conservative element of the
community, lay and professional. But the
wisdom of the experiment was vindicated by
the salutary results of the philanthropic sug
geetlon of ine practitioners ol medicine who
exploited It, themselves Incurring all the
dangers In commun with those whom tbfey
sought to benefit In this procedure.
To Dr. Benjamin Tusieu Is due the credit 01
Introduction of vaccination for modified
smaupox id urange county. ?uis was m
1770, and for the purpose of prosecuting tilt
worK tie hired four bouses, one lu Hampton
burgb (then Oosben) ou tue banks oi thi
Otterklll, near where he lived, another near
btony Ford Bridge, a third at East Division,
and the fourth on the little island near tbe
I Cedar Swamp, in tbebe bouses ne lnnocu
iated about eight nundred persons with sucti
success as to entirely destroy tbe prejudice
which had previously existed. He Kept toll
houses two years, alter which mnocuiation
could be performed in private houses. He
oontlnued the practice of his profession wan
success and deserved reputation until Ibt
year 1775. In 1777 he was appointed Lieuten
ant-Colonel of tne Goshen reegluient of mi
litia, a'nd in 17JS he was appointed Surrogate
of the county, wnlcb office he held at the
lime of bis tragic death.
In early Hi? be married MIbs Ann Brown,
of Newark, N. J. They had Ave chlldien, as
follow*: James, ben in 1770; Thomas, lu
1771; Catharine, In 1774; Sarab In 177C, and
Abigail, in 177S. A large number of tne de
scendants of Dr. Tusten have been represent
ed in tbe families of Uosben and viciulty
during a century and longer.
In tbe discussions wblob culminated In the
"War of the Kevolution Dr. Tusten took a'
aotlve part. Hesitating at no sacrifice be
marched with his neighbors in the pursuit ot
tbe Indian Invaders in the western preciuci
of our county and conspicuously participated
In the memorable battle of Allnlslnk. The
story, as a whole, of that sanguinary engage
- . - - . , ? _ .Ul.?nn
mem is so laminar iu iub uuiiouo w viku*,*
(Jouuty as to Deed no rehearsal here aud now
from ay pen.
I shall limit what I have to say concerning
the events of thai historic battle to Dr. Tus
ten's participation and related connection
with It alone. >
What mortal tongue can describe or pen
itly chronicle the heroism and lurtliudeoi
* those gallant men who took part and tell In
that bloody struggle on tue distant height*
of Mlnlslok, after deeds of mighty vaior?
They marched over hill and dale, through
the pathless wilderness, 'neath a burning
July son. They fought, they were outnum
bered, aye, live to one. Alas ! they were con
quered, but not until half their little band
lay dead upon that blood stained field; not
until they had accomplished a feat of arms
whlcli will blaze forever on the pages of our
They were heroes, all. But the incompar
able hero of those matchless American pa
triots who fell in that deadly strife on that
memorable day, was BeDjamln Tusten, Col
and Doctor. After the ammunition was
nearly gone, the day far spent, and the weak
oordon of defense broken; in a word, when
the inevitable of massacre or flight was
reached In the fortunes of the day, then 11
was that Gen. Hathorn, chief In command,
and with authority to speak, proclaimed
these words: "Every man for hlmbelf and
God for ub all." Bat what of the fate of the
~ wounded who sbou d remain prisoners in the
bands of the merciless savages In that crisis
Whiie yet the battle was raging, and before
the alternative of massacre or flight bad cul
minated in the conflict, Dr. Tusten bad
gathered the wouDded In a sheltered place
behind a cliff of rocks when the privileged
retreat commenced. There were 17 disabled
men under his care at the moment to whom
be was ministering, and while thus engaged
they all were attacked by the blood thirsty
savages and with relentless cruelty every one
perished under the tomahawk and scalplu*;
knife of the merciless foe. Though the oppor
lunuy wim iue oiuerM wuu uuu ueu
available on the pari of Dr. Tusten, neverthe
less he voluntarily remained at tae choseo
post of service, performing with sell'-sacriUo
log fidelity the humane offices of the ever
dutiful and faithful good physician. Thus
r died Dr. Benjamin Tusten, whose heroic de
mise at the early age of thirty-six, with
wounded men In bis charge, as described,
renders him assuredly worthy of a tablet in
the Hall ol Fame. I know ol no correspond
ing example of martyrdom on the part of a
surgeon In the annals of war.

TILLMAN'S, POWEK ABSO
In South Carolina, Says n Prominent
"So absolute is the power ot Senator
Tillmah in the state of South Carolina
that there is no doubt of the perman
ency of his dispensary law." said S. S.
Richards, a Baltimore business man,
who ba9 just returned from a trip to
that section and is at the New Wil
"The recent investigation of the sys
tem, which was expected to reveal
. many evils, was not a success in tbat
sense, and there is no doubt that it is
strongly entrenched. If there was a
disposition to do away with it, the at
titude of Senator Tilltuan, who is the
father of it would retain it. The sena
tor is immensly popular in the state,
and the people I talked with there
said he could have anything he want
ed, and as loner as he wanted it.
"His rugged honesty and picturesque
personality have made him popular
here, but in South Carolina they wor
ship him. They look upon him as the
greatest man of his state since Cal
houn, and they are preparing to give
him a rousing testimonial of their
good will when they re-elect him to
the senate next year.
"It is a small wonder, then, that his
liquor dispensary system should have
met all storms of public criticism.

! The splendid library of the late Rev.
Dr. Robert Latbao, long known as in
cluding one of the fioest private col
lections of books to be found in the
south, is no more. It was destroyed
by fire on May 17tb. The facts were
[recited by Rev. W. C. Ewart last Sun
day morning in connection with a re
quest for assistance for Rev. T. B.
Stewart in whose possession the li
brary was. Rev. Mr. Stewart married
Dr. Lathan's eldest daughter, Miss
Annie I., who died about three years
ago. The library was a part of Mrs.
Stewart's possessions. Mr. Stewart is
pastor of Back Creek church in Meck
lenburg county. The parsonage which
bis family was occupying and which
contained tne library, caught fire on
the 17th and was burned with its con
teuts. Practically nothing was saved.

ousrare volumes, some of the booksJ
being each one of a half dozen or le9s
of some particular editiou known to
exist. One particularly rare volume
was Tarleton's Memoirs; but this was
only one among many equally valu
able. There were also scores of old un
published manuscripts that the doctor
had collected while searching for his
torical and other material, and also a
number of unpublished manuscripts
of his owu. Aoioug these later man
uscripts was a continuation of South
Carolina from the war of the Revolu
tion up to the civil war. Though the
library was not for sale and would not
have been sold at. any price, it was
worth thousands of dollars in cash.?

I went out hunting yesterday,
In bracing winter air,
And I shall tell in lauguage plain,
Ju8t what I saw out there.
I saw a little mother quail,
With her small children six,
All hiding in a big brush heap.
In a most dreadful fix.
A hawk was watching from a tree,
With fierce and eager eye;
A dog with head and tail in line,
Was at a "stand" close by.
And I, a man, God's noblest work (?)
Was out, just having fun,
By makiog war on little birds,
With automatic guu.
The hawk that was in search of food,
With which to *ave his life:
The dog was there, at my command,
To aid me in tbe strife;
And I, who knew the rules of right,
And murder's vile import,
Was out there, not in search of food,
But killing, just for sport.
