In thlsurtlclc wcHlinll attempt totflve
something of the history of the origin of
the express ImhIiksh of the United
StntcB, ami to make a few local remarks
in relation to this growing institution.
i ho cxprces business, like that of the
magnetic telegraph, isof modem origin,
and is of American parentage, For
many hundred years, the post boy had
pecformcd his part in carrying des
patches by the aid of the fleetest horses,
and the stage driver had been accus
tomed to do errands for t lie people along
his route, and friends upon their jour
neys had taken and delivered souvcniis
for friends, but the present system of
"package express" had not been sug
gestedit was unknown.
According to tho law of improvement,
the "package express is also the result
of freestiue enterprise, and owes its es
tablishment to Wm. F. liarnden, a
Massachusetts boy, in 1S.10. Farenden
wns a young man of. slight stature,
weighing hardly 100 pounds, and ol
consumptive tendencies, and h ul been
worn out with work in the ticket office
of the Boston & Worcester R. It., when
he relinquished his situation or obtained
a short furlough and visited New York.
James W. Hale went to New York
from Uoston in the spring of 18,'iG, and
became the ngerit of a Providence
steamer. Harenden consulted witli
Hale about asituation, and Hale advised
him to do errands between Boston and
New York. Another version of the
story alleges that Harenden had ccn
celved the idea in Boston before he
visited New York. Harenden also con
sulted ajor J. A. Pullcn, by letter,
who was a conductor on the Boston &
Providence line to New York, and agent
of the steamers, and received his en
couragements. Harcndon also had a
talk with Mr. Moore, a conductor upon
the Boston & Worcester R. It., and de
sired to enlist him with a partner.
Moore was undecided, and Harenden
immediately made a contract on his
own account, with the superintendent
of the Boston & Providence R. R.
The earliest publi; mention of the ex
press was made in a Boston newspaper,
dated Fcbruaiy 23d, 1S39, and is as fol
BOSTON AND NEW YORK
Important to Merchants, Brokers, Book'
setters and others.
XV m . F . liar n d e it ,
For the last five years conductor and
passenger clerk for the B031011 & Wor
cester R. R. Company, has made ar
rangements with the Providence R. R.
and New York Steamboat Companies,
to run a car through from Boston to Now
York, and vice versa, four times a week,
commencing on Monday 4th March. He
will accompany a car himself for the
purpose of purchasing goods, collecting
drafts notes, and bills. Orders of all
kinds promptly attended to. He will
take charge of small packages of goods,
bundles, &c., &e.
The "extra car" was a little sensa
tional ; for an ordinary valise served to
hold all that the original expressman
was troubled to carry for several months
afterwards. This identical valise is
new in the possession of Benjamin P.
Cheney, Esq., of Boston, a successful
express proprietor and railroad man
ager. During the year, however, Iho busi
ness grew in proportions, and eni.ugh
had besn learned to insure the perma
nency cf the institution, and in 1840
Harnden extended his 'ine to Philauel
ghia, and E. L. Stone was commissioned
to go there and net as his agent, and
Major J. A. Pullcn became his Boston
and New York messenger. In all of
struggle for the establishment of his
project, the odds wore against him. He
had neither health, capital, nor friends
to back him, but his energy triumphed
In the autumn of 1840, D. Brlgham
juur., became Harnden's partner, and
went to England to establish a transat
lantic line. Offices were established In
England, France, Scotland, frejand,
and Germany, and it was so arranged
that Harnden & Co., at all their offices
in the United States could mako bills of
exchange upon their foreign agents, or
upon first-class bankers abroad. Th.s
arrangement became popular with the
emigrants settling in America, who
were thus enabled to return to their
friends in Europe the money borrowed
to pay their fare to the United States.
The health and strength of narnden
at length failed him, and ho went South
and died Jau. 14, 18G8. He had been
upon the highest wave of ropularity in
the United States, and his friends be
lieved him to bo rich, but not so, he
died poor. Ho had introduced a new
method of doing business iuto the world,
and had lived to see, in a very few years
its necessity recognized by nil men, and
it3Clf permanently established ; but like
Morse and many other discoverers and
iuvento.s, ho did not make the money
out of his enterprise. He was kind
hearted and liberal, and none eamo to
him in dltj less who woiohtrned uway
empty. ' '
Alvin Adams, an orphan boy from
Vermont, went to Boston, a '''stranger
in a strange land," and commenced life
in the humble capacity of assistant in
the Lafayette Hotel. At length he ro.-e
to the position of grocer on his own ac
count, and in the extreme fluctuations
of trade al (ho time, lie failed, and lost
everything, and was greatly cmbair.is-
sed with debts which lie was unable to
pay. However, he rallied and paid his
debts to the last dollar, and in May 1
1840, witli P. 11. Burke, he started an j
opposition toltanidcn'scxprcs3,bitwoen !
P.oston and New York. Fiom this!
move has grown the well-known insti
tution of Adams & Co.'s express. The
necessity of the express by this time had
been discovered, and soon after express
companies sprung up witli great rapidi
ty throughout the country.
On the 1st day of April, 184."), an ex
press was established between BuHUlo,
Cincinnati, St. Louis, and intermediate
points, by Henry Weils,Wm. G. Fargo,
and another person. Wm, O. Fargo is
a native of Ontiiidago Co., N. Y., and
from this organization has matured (he
great California express which has for
warded thousands of millions of dollars
to the Atlantic cities.
Henry Wells, in connection with
James W. Hale, started a let 'or express
between New York and Boston, which
soon cxtciK ed from Chicago, HI., to
Bangor, Me. This express carried let-
to s at the time at about 0110 fourth the
Government r ics, and found it to be a
very profitable business. The officers of
the Government were determined to
reak down this letter express business,
and arrested Wells & Co.'s messengers
daily. Bonds wjro promptly given,
and the messengers were enabled to
make their regular trips, and in the
suits which the Government instituted
against the express, the express in every
instance came out ol the contest victo
rious. Mr. Wells made a proposal at
the time to Major Hobbie, First Assis
tant Postmaster General, to take the en
tire mail service of the United States,
including delivery, at five cents per let
ter. Major Hobbie saw in this event,
ibout about 10,000 postmasters thrown
out of employment, and could not enter
tain thcpioposition. This opposition o(
the express companies against the ex
horbitant rates of letter postage, backed
by a large portion of .he people of the
United States, resulted finally in the
adoption of our present cheap rates of
postage, which have proved to be more
remunerative to the Government, than
the old exhorbitant rales.
The express companies relinquished
their opposition under the now order of
things, and Congress enacted laws for
bidding express companies to carry let
ters without their being enclosed in
prepaid envelopes, which is the law at
the present time.
We come now to sck more particu
larly of the express companies doing bu
siness at St. Albans. In 1840, Major J.
A. Pullcn was ;llariiden's express mes
senger between Boston and New York ;
in 1841, between New York and Phila
delphia ; and in 1842, between New
York, Albany, and Troy, via Hudson
In 1843 Ilarndon having sojii out the
Hudson River Express, Pullcn & Copp
started on that route for themselves. In
IS 13 n Mr. Jacobs started an Express
from Albany to Montreal, Capt. E. H.
Virgil acted as his Express Messenger
and Agent about a year and then with
N. G. Howard purchased the line. His
route was by the Lake Cliamplain
Steamers during navigation aad in tho
winter season he staged it through Ver
mont. In 1845, Pullcn of the Now York
and Troy line, united witli Virgil of the
Troy and Montreal 'line and formed a
through Express line between Now
York and Montreal, under the style of
Pullcn, Virgil, & Co.
In ISoG, Pullcn, Virgil & Co. consoli
dated Avith a competing line, cf which
Vm. A. Livingstone was the chief man
ager, and the route Lccamo the proper
ty of the joint stock express, under tho
style of the National Express Company,
with a capital stock of $2o0,000. Major
Pullcn rcmaine.' a director of this Ex
press Company until 1SG7 when he rc'
tired poor, At the beginning of Captain
Virgil's intercourse with Canada in the
capacity of an expressman, the field was
not very promising of an abundent har
vest. He had a peculiar peoplo to deal
with n Canada, a people who wore slow
to believe in the expediency of the now
enterprise, but being a man of great ex
perience, sagacity, and tenacity cf pur
pose, and being sustained by great pow
ers of endurance, through him the Ex
press to Capada has triumphed, and is
now regarded with thosanjo popular ap
prcciatlon there r.sin the United b't-itcs
The route of the National Exp. ess
Company now extends over the follow t
ing Railroads; the Harlem, Hudson
River, Troy and TJoslon, Saratoga and
Whlthnll, Rutland and Washington,
Montreal and Champlain, and on tl)P
vjiainplain Steamers, This Company
runs special cars from Now York
through to Montreal, via. Rutland, Bur
llngton and St. Albans, but does no lo
cal business between TtnUflNd, Vt., and
St. Johns, P. Q.
Of Cheney & Co's; Fisko & Go's and
Cheney Fisko & Go's Express our re
cords are not bo complete, L. Bigolow
was the founder of Fisko & Co's Express
in 1848, over the Bosk 11 and Fltchburg
and Worcester and Nashua Rallroadr.
In 1851 Blgclow holdout to Fisko & Rico,
mil in 1834 the firm name was changed
to Fisko & Co. Fisko & Co's., route be
came extended to Burlington, Vt., over
the Rutland and Burlington Railroad
upon tho opening of that load.
The route of Cheney & Co. became
extended over the Vermont Central
Railroad upon the opening of that load
t j Burlington, Vt.
The line of Cheney, Fisko & Go's.,
Express extended from Burlingtcn, Vt.,
over the Vermont and Canada Railroad
and the Ogdcnsburgh Railroad, upon
the opening of these roads to Ogdcns
burgh, and to Montreal at about the
same time. C. P. Goer, who was former
ly a waiter-boy on the Lake Champlain
steamers, was the silent partner in the
as; named Express Company and was
the first local Express Agent at Rouse's
Po'nt, on the line of Railroad. Alter
two years, in 1853, Mr. M. F.Chaso suc
ceeded Mr. Gecr in tho Office at Rouse's
Point, when Mr. Goer went to Ogdcns
burgh where he now is. Mr. Goer was
the superinteiidant ol Cheney, Fisko &
Co's Express, until the summer of 1807,
when the three last named Exprcis
Companies became united lujonc Cc 111
pany, which is now kr.owii by the name
of the "United States and Canada Ex
press." The 1110s 1 suceissful Express 1 roprie
trrin New England, is Benjamin P.
Cheney, from whom the Express de
rived its name. Mr. Cheney is now one
o'the receivers and managers of the
Vermont Central Railroad Company.
Ho began life as a stage driver between
Pcterboro and Nashua, New Hampshire
ami early received the appellation of
"the fancy stage driver."
There are but two Express Companies
doiiiK business at St. Albans, the "Unit
ed States & ranadi" and the "Nation
al." The President of the United States
and Canada, is P. S. Fisko, Boston. Mr.
Martin, of Windsor, who formerly run as
Express Messenger from Bellows Falls to
Windsor, is now superinteiidant of tho
routes formerly run by Fisko & Co. M.
J.Pratt, of White River Juction, who
was formerly Express Messenger be
tween Burlington and Boston is now
suporintindant of the routes formerly
run by Cheney &Co., and Cheney Fiskc
Since .1 .me 1st 18G0, Mr. .1. B. Fletcher
has been the local agent of the United
Statos and Canada Express at St. Al
bans, and his staff is as follows, E. L
Stowcll clerk, George Beals, driver, Jas.
Stebbins, helper. Tho messengers of
this express running into St. Albans arc
as follows ; between St. Albans and
Montreal S. S. Allen ; between Ogdcns
burgh and Burlington, E. F. Osborne,
F. A. Douglass, D. N. Bryant an d li.
A. Arnold ; between St. Albans and
Concord N. II. Robert Frye, J. R. Wat
son and C. A. Thompson ; between St.
Albans and Boston, W. A. Stowcll, W

The President of the National Ex
press Company is Win. A. Livingston,
Superinteiidant, E. II. Virgil and Tre
asurer. U. Yv. Wincliester. uver tins
line, Mr. Stephen D. Hopkins and A.
M. Kendall are messengers between
Burlington and Montreal, 'and the local
officers at St. Albans are tho same as of
the United States and Canada Express.
Mr. Fletcher's livery for the delivery
of goods about town is not to be excel
led, his office in tho depot is the porfoc
tion of neatness and its accommodating
iriangcments arc not surpassed in New
England, but this is not the greatest im
portance to be attached to the frontier
Express Office, on Canada mo. Hero,
the Express has more than its ordinary
work to do and unites with its agency
the customs and forwarding business.
In the absence of tho owners of the pro
perty to be transported across the lino,
either way, it is left to tho care of the
Express Agents and Messengers. Tho
laws o. the two countries aro to be ob
served, strictly, and as the Express car
ries a vast amount of valuable merchan
dise both ways, thoir responsibilities aro
great. The messengers, in making their
reports correctly to the tfficers of tho
two Governments aro constantly be
tween two fires. Goods arc bonded both
ways, all of which is to bo remembered
and nothing is to do forgotten. Goods
in bond to go out of the country must
he so reported to tho Custom House cf
tho country from which it is to go, like
wise all merchandise not in bond, and
the simo report is to bo made at the first
Custom House of the Country which it
entors and there entries aro to bo made
and tho duties to bo paid, or aro to I 0
entered in bond. It is safe to say, that
however tlilllcult this branch of tho
business may bo, it is Bafer for any one
unacquainted with the laws of tho two
Countries, to send by Express, rather
than undertake to gp thomsolyos,

When roviowing the causes of these distres
sing complaints, it is most painful to contem
plate the attendant evils consequent upon them.
It is but aiiiiplo justice to tho subject to enitni
er.ito a few of tho many additional causes which
so largely affect the life, health, and happiness
ot woman in all classes of soeiety, and which,
consequently, affect moro or less direcilv, the
welfuro of tho cntiro human familv. Tho mania
tlrnt exists for precocious education and nrir
nago, causes tho years that nature designed for
corporeal development to bo wasted and per
verted in the restraints of dress, tho early con
finement of school, and esneciallv in the un
healthy excitement of tho ball-room. Thus,
with tho body half-clothed, and tho mind unduly
excited b pleasure, perverting in midnight
revel the hours designed by nature for sleep and
rest, tho work of destruction is half accom
plished. In consequence of this early strain upon her
system, unnecessary effoit is required by tho
delicato votary to retain her situation in school
at a later day, t ins aggravating tho evil. When
0110 excitement is over, another in prospective
keens the mind morbidly sensitive to impression,
whilu tho now constant restraint of fashionable
dress, absolutely forbidding tho exercise indis
pensable to tho attainment and retention of or
ganic health and strengUi ; the exposure to
night air ; tho sudden change of temperature ;
tho complete prostration produced bv excessive
dancing, must, of necessity, produco" their legi
timate effect. At last, ail early marriaco caps
tho climax of misery, and tho uiifortunato one,
hitherto so utterly regardless of tho plain dic
tates and remonstrances of her delicate nature,
becomes an unwilling subject of medical treat
ment. This is but a truthful picture of tho ex
perience of thousands of our young women.
Long before tho ability lo exercise tho func
tions of tho generative organs, thev require an
education of their peculiar nervous system, com
posed of what is called tho tissue," which is, in
common with the female breast and lips, evid
ently under the control of mental cnotions and
associations at an early period of life ; and, as
wo shall subsequently see, these emotions, when
