Jewett Graphic Pen Pictures of Venerable Homesteads In Harford County. Correspsndcnce of the Cincinnati Enquirer. It is my liabit every spring te make a carriage ride through some parts of Mary land, my paternal and maternal province. This year I concluded te take the most northern county, Harford, above Balti mere, wedged between the Chesapeake bay, the Susquehanna river and Pennsyl vania. I went from New Yerk te Havre-dc-Grace where every train, however fast must step in little mere than four hours and ledged in the pretty little Harford house. Leaving Havre-de-Grace at 7:30 o'clock, in a buggy, I was driven ever a steep, rocky country for five miles, till the read descended by the bed of a dashing stream te Lapidum, or old " Bell's Ferrv." edde- site the well-known town of Pert Deposit, en the Susquehanna. Three miles out from Havre-de-Grace at the hill-top, where the Chesapeake, with its many points, headlands and islands, looked in the dis tance like a vast mountain and forest lake, was the old bread-standing brick house. with bread, low-pitched reef of Commo Comme dore Redgers., of the American navy. It looked te have been built early in the cen tury, when every commodore, with his Tripelitan and British prize money, de sired te build a great house. The entrance te Redgers's mansion was from the rear, through an unfenced grove of oaks and chestnuts, se as te let the whole front be an unobstructed view of that unequalled bay into which six rivcis emptied in sight of the commodore's piazza The present Redgers, I am told, is a Maryland militia colonel, holding the little eilice of collector of the pert of Ilavre-de-Gracc, at a salary of $1,200. " lie's a kind, irravc old man." said the boy. ' Him and Belmont, the big broker, married sisters (daughters of Commedore Matthew Perry). Bill Perry, his brother-in-law, or nephew, I don't knew which, comes here sometimes. The British burning Havre-de-Grace ap plied the torch also te Redgers's mansion, which he called Zion itill. The great sail or who lived here, Jehn Redgers, was sec end te JSarren when he lulled Decatur. Pert Deposit, which might as well be built en a raft, se low is it te the water level and anchored te high granite cliffs, was erected by Cel. Jehn Crcsswell, father of the late postmaster general, whose uncle. Jacob Teme, a Pennsylvania Dutch man, is the moneyed magnate of all this part of the country. At Lapidum the buggy was run up the side of the Susquehanna canal for three or four miles, giving splendid river views, bread and rock-bound, and the rearing, bright current, broken with willowy inlets. At Reck Run we passed line old mills and the ruins of a long bridge across the Sus quehanna, en whose river abutments Jay Gould's brand-new telcirranh poles, with the wires net yet strung, waited te connect across the almost mile of flood. Befeie we came in sight of Cene wage bridge, which the rebels guarded te prevent Maryland being invaded at the outbreak of the war, our read turned inward from the Susquehanna which we saw no mere, and found a shady course up the bank of one of the most beautiful creeks in the Middle States, Deer creek. At its mouth is a great series of stone mills, employed in grinding bones. liiut and Heur. This is the Deer creek ou which Hugh J. Jewett passed his youth. Between this and the next mill above Wilsen's, en the heights north of Deer creek, is a very old Quaker settlement called Darlington. There the father and mother of the Jewett boys arc buried in the ancient Quaker grave-yard, by a meet inghouse, dating back te 1727. The army of Lafayette, moving te Virginia in 1780, found this old meeting house, already sixty years old, as they lay in the shade of its tall oak grove. Upen the tops of two low rounded marble stones, placed probably within a few years, arc the letters : " Susannah, wife of Jehn Jewett, Died 9th month, 13, 1852, Aged 71 years." "Jehn Jewett, died 1 month, 28, 1824, Aged 77 years." "James J. Jewett, 5th month, 9th, 1839, Aged 23." The latter was a brother of President Jewett, ever whose body his mother, Su sannah, a Quaker preacher, and the ablest woman probably ever known in Harford county, preached the funeral sermon. Leaving Darlington te be visited later, we continued past Wilsen's mill up te Deer creek, passing a great hollow, mined stone mill, and uii a hill above it a house sunken down with age, under whose pros trate reef it is said William Pinkney, the great advocate, was mairied when he had te boirew a suit of clothes. Net far be yond this the read leaves Deer creek and continues ever the hills, and from their elevatien we sec the finest piece of granite silled landscape in Maryland a magnifi cent amphitheatre of high hills, en every hill a stone or wooden building, and all the streams drooping out of the gray air into Deer creek, which was three or four hundred feet below their summits. The airy fields are plowed te their profiles, where, instead of goods, small groves of forest trees are left te show the strength of the precious soil. The red, raveled gul leys of ether parts of Maryland de net ex ist here. Live cattle graze along the bread, rapid creek or by its calm deep elbows. All the fences and improvements arc thrifty as New England, and stone walls are often seen inclosing the fields. One feels that seme ether than the shift less Maryland slave-holder thas been here and given pattern te the landscape. It is the Quaker ! Beheld his apple orchards and his old cherry trees along the lanes, his husbandry te save the black walnflt trees for what they add te winter eating, and encouragement te locusts for the best fence-pests. He also saves the springs for dairy cells, and puts a stile te cress the fence where the boys will make paths. In the center of this rich green and black-plowed landscape is a stone house en a cape of hill extending into the air to ward Deer creek. A long lane with brown painted fences and lines of locust trees de scends from the read into a dip of the pre montery and rcascends again te the straight, pointed, stylish residence appar ently built but yesterday. Yet the visitor detects in a moment something peculiar about the courses of the stone, which arc in parallel lines, and if any course is com menced small it se gees through the wider was born Hugh J. Jewett, probably in Menree's administration. Mr. King, the owner, a bachelor Quaker of philanthropy and foreign travel, comes out of Kenten and gives us agreeable in formation. " This hense," he says, ' was the birth place of all the Jewett boys, of whom there were eight or ten, all able, broad bread seeing, determined men, whom the country here could net held. Hugh J. Jewett was the pioneer and helping spirit of them all. The old men around here remember him as a fine-looking, elastic, studious boy, work ing en the farm. The father of Mr. Jewett bought this place after being some time in the vicinity, and he married Susannah Judge, a leader at.il preacher in the Quaker sect, and brought her te this hodse. It was built by the Husbands family, whose homestead is en the west hill, according te the white stone you see in the side front ever my deer." This stene said : J. n. and M. IL. courses, it is, in fact, an old house re vived into a picturesque villa by the well known architect of Maryland, J. Crawford Ncilsen, who is new designing stations, &c, for the Erie railroad. He lives near Priest's Ferd, within sight of this trans formed dwelling, which is new the prop erty of a retired Baltimore business man, Mr. King, who calls it "Kenten." Here 1770." Sgnifying Jeseph and Mary Husbands. "Yeu can hardly identify the exterior of the dwelling new," said Mr. King, " because the architect has Gethicized it. The kitchen part, formerly plumb with the main dwelling, has been moved back and its cornice pierced with long, half attic windows ; architectural windows also have been added te the garret : all the windows have been arched with red brick above, and new red chimneys put en and a stone belvedere and screen have been added te the front, extending it. I have put the Greek fountain, the ice pond and the statue of a deer in the lawn. But come inside and I will show you Kenten as it was !" He leads the way directly into a squaie room, no vestible interposing, except the pretty front perch, and we see in the cor ner a richly carved modern mantelpiece in oak, representing acenis and cars of corn. The whole room is wainscoted and cased in oak, still smelling frch as when felled in the weeds. An ei J room te the rierht also oak-faced marks the original subdi vision, and this !c.ub te the new oak stair. case, with a carved bird ou the balustrade Except the modernizing and enriching, these rooms arc of the dimensions as for merly. The old stene walls are two feet thick ami are made of gneiss or syenite. A painting of the place as it was shows a two story, oblong house, three narrow windows wide, two dormers in the reef, a reefed perch and steps in front, and a kitchen as high as the eves, but of lower-pitched reef, with a smoke house part in the second story of the end. It steed a substantial granite dwelling en a grassy hill, cool all summer, cold aud wind-swept all winter. " New, I will show you the room lluirh J. Jewett was born in." The staircase in the northeast corner went te three bed-rooms, two of which were lengthwise of the house, and the same chimney provided ler both their lireplaces, se that the fireplace made each room have a fifth side in the comer. Te balance this a closet or clothes press was in the cor responding corner. Twe deep silled win dows lighted this room, which was of comfortable size, and here a line of Ameri can men passed the criticism of ruidife and doctor and went handsomely and nat urally te milk and sleep. The garret con tained modern hydraulic arrangements for a grand bachelor bath. " It is a tradi tion," said Mr. King, "that when this house was built a party was held at the house en the opposite hill, and after tea the proprietor said : 'New, we will go ever and lay out our new home by the light of the North star.' And, sir, it is plumb at the gables with the axis of the North star." Se, by the same star, the third generation has walked te use and station. The old family well is new a sink for the baths ; the old seat under the locust tree ou the lawn is gene, se is the stene school house en the farm where the Jewett boys received their first learning and birch ing. But the lovely, bold laudbcape, and the geed old beams and timbers, aie still here, and the fortress-like walls that kept the Jewctts warm. There lived en the shores of the Chesa peake bay, about the river bush, an an cient Maryland family named Webster. Just after the Revolutionary war, proba bly before the constitution was adopted, a young man by the name of Jewett came from Connecticut or Massachusetts and opened the practice of medicine in Harford county. He married Annie We'.ster. and had two children, Jehn and Themas Jew ett, of whom only Jehn lived te be a man. His father dying, Jehn was apprenticed, like the father of Gen. Grant, te a Quaker tanner, Jeshua Husbands, by his uncle, Jehn Lee Webster. The tannery was near Deer Creek, close by the farm and house described. By reference te the will of Jehn Lee AVebster at Bel Air, I find that he left "my two little nephews $100 each when they shall be free of their master, Jeshua Husbands. " This will was made May 28, 1795. Jehn Jewett, orphan, adopted the Qua ker faith of his master's family, became a geed, upright, undeviating friend, and put by money and bought the Newton farm before the second war with England. He was born during the American Revolution, faintly remembered the American army crossing the Susquehanna at Conewago ford and saw buniins Havrc-dc-Grace in 1813 from the meetinghouse at Darlington. Old Darlington meeting was the gift of Cel. Jatnes Rigby, who turned Quaker and had 2,000 acres of land. After his meeting house had survived two wars and was the centre of the most orderly and happy com munity in Maryland, there came te (his settlement a remarkably fine-looking, elo quent and sensible Quakeress, Susannah Judge, it is said, from Ohie, of Virginia Quaker stock. Of this st jck and sect was Mrs. President Madisen. Jehu Jewett fell in love with the young evangelist. She continued te preach regularly at Darling ion for almost the whole of her life, filling the meeting house, and when she died the meeting languished. Elias Hicks was her guest, and she took his side in the great controversy between orthodox and Hick site, whereby there was a schism in Dar lington meeting, the orthodox minority going off aud building a new house of wor ship. The will of Jehn Jewett, the father of Hugh J. Jewett, is recorded at Belair a plain, brief document, written in the Quaker phraseology, " sixteenth day of the fourth month, 1840" no Mars or ether Cassarism being in his notions. " I give and bequeath te my beloved wife, Susan nah Jewett, all my personal estate and also all that part of my farm where I reside, north of the lead from Deer creek iron works te Dublin, during her natural life. Te Jeseph H. Jewett, my executer, the southern half of the farm and my wife's half also, after her death. Te my daugh ter, Annie W. Jehns, $500, Te my sons, Jehn, Jeshua, Isaac and Hugh J. Jewett, $10. Te my sons, Themas L. Jewett and Edward II. Jewett, their respective notes for $1,900 and $1,497, te which they stand indebted te me, with interest accrued." The personal estate of this modest Friend amounted te only $237. Here seven sons are mentioned by be quest and one daughter. The executer of the will was probably that son who pre ferred te stay near home and take care of his parents. He remained a Quaker, and recently removed from Mayland te Lou Leu Lou eon county, Va., and is a farmer there. Jehn Jewett, the eldest son, also remained around Maryland, and is new a citizen of mltimere. He is a Republican, although deemed thereby te a lifelong minority in Maryland politics. Although nearly 70 years of age, he is spoken of as one of the finest natural politicians in Maryland suggestive, efficient, intuitive and a noble-looking man. He married a well-to-de widow of Pennsylvania as a second wife. There was another son who did net leave Maryland, Dr. James, and while enjoying a geed practice in Baltimore he died near the age of 26, and was brought home te Darlington, te be buned m the old Quaker ground, and his mother, Susannah Jewett, preached the funeral sermon ever his re. mains, with a faith superior te weakness. The only girl in the Jewett family, Annie, married .Stephen S. Jehn, of Harford county, Md., who made his married home at Donald station, Pa. She became an Episcopalian. Themas D. Jewett, whose note was pre sented te him above, was Judge Jewett, well known in New Yerk, Ohie and Phila delphia, and he led one of the most vigor ous careers of any of the family. Going te New Yerk city in boyhood, he becarae clerk in a large hide, bone, comb and cattle-reducing works. They found him clear sighted and with a mind able te irrase any subject in its broadest relations. He was sent te Seuth America and given a certain discretion te buy stock, and, landing every thing unduly, low, he bought such a vast amount that the timid part of the firm was afraid he had "swamped" them. But the venture made them rich, and they gave him a commission amounting te above $100,000. He then went into busi ness with his brother, probably Edward H., and they failed, owing te a business depression. Hence, probably, the notes aforesaid. Themas then studied law, or rather took it up, and proved te have capa city enough in it te become judge. He settled in Ohie at Cadiz ; was made pres' dent of a railroad and finally died in Phila delphia rich, leaving a son new in business there. Jeshua Jewett emiirrated, by his brother Hugh's advice, te Kentucky, dropped into law, became a celebrated land lawyer and was sent te Cengiess. But Kentucky politics are the enemy of steady habits and he died en the threshold of a large career. Isaac W. Jewett is the president of a fire insurance company in Baltimore city Hugh J. Jewett, a Democrat, like his Quaker father, went te school en the farm and te a school near Wilsen's mill and te a Latin school also. He taught school a short time in Cecil county and studied law with Cel. Jehn Greeme, father of the pres ent Maryland senator, atElkten. Cecil county, Md. At the age of 20 he set out for the west and settled at St. Clairsvillc. He married the sister of a governor of the state, acquired a wide practice, and whan the Central Ohie railroad was impoverished by harpies was made receiver of it, and he removed every man along the line but one, whom he found te be honest. He bought up the property and re peated tne same periermance thirty years afterward with the great Erie railroad, which under his management has ceased te be a scandal. He is thus of English Quaker, English Episcopalian and New England types intermixed. All the family were handsome men, and he retains the line air and kindly, yet commanding pres ence, very much suggesting Henry Clay. When I steed 'at his mother's grave it was all covered with periwinkle vine in beauti ful flower, and the breeze from the Susque hanna and bay made every blossom nod. I thought te myself of the old saying of Solemon : Her husband shall be known at the gates when he sitteth ameug the elders of the land. Gatit. CLOTHING. A COMPLETE RENEWAL IX OVR STOCK OF CLOTHING.
