FRAGMENTS OF THE EARLY HISTORY
OF OHIO COUNTY.
nr ii. j. tavlor.
In our previous number wc omillcd for
n more extended notice Thomns, the sec
ond oon of old Harrison Taylor. On a
hndv knoll on the road a few miles eaft
of linrlford, among memorials of the
dead, Bland the marble slabs, pointing lo
the Inst restinz nlace of the ITer. Thomas
Taylor nnd his wife Margaret Taylor,
whose memories have almost laded from
the present generation, hut both of whom
once occupied no otdinary position in so
ciety, as the infcriptiona on the marble
will indicaU. On his, nfler name, dates,
ic, is the following- "As n patriot,
none loved his country more. As n
preacher, he stood pte-eminent as n pio
neer of Methodism in the west. Remark
able alike for his honesty, industry, en
ergy nnd benevolence, his heart was al
ways right, his failings were but virtues
On her s. nfler like nnmes, dates, Ac.(
is the following:
"Ry the Rood eiteeined the luflViing blrMed,
Now laden with year! he liei at rcit."
"Go read of the illustrious mothers of
Greece, of Rome nnd our own land, yet
know that here lies one, though reared
nn orphan by stranger, on the borders of
civilization, amid the horrors or the inv
olution, who, in all the duties of social,
religious nnd domestic life, was excelled
by none of these."
No eimpler truths could be told of
their memories than those stones utter.
Margaret Taylor was the daughter of
Nicholas Curlett, an old Indian fighter
and scout, an almost constant companion
of old Gen. Morgan. His parents were
of English and Irish descent, and his
wife's maiden name was Flauglierty, ol
Ungenot origin. Nicholas Curlett was
killed while descending the Ohio river,
by a band of pretended friendly Indians,
and his wile dying shortly afterwards,
their daughter, Margsret, was left n help
less infant in the hands of strangers, sev.
eral hundred miles from any blood re
lation. But fortune blessed her with n
home where no parents could have treat
ed her with greater tenderness; and often
has she been heard to say Ihnt her
adopted parents treated her with more
marked care and attention than they did
their own children, and if nny descend
ants of Col. Hedge should ever rend this
notice of his adopted child, they may
rest assured thnt the day of her death,
die chcriidird the most unbounded love
nnd nflection for the family with whom
her lot was cast.
Col. Hedge lived in what is now com
monly called the Tan Handle, near
Wheeling. Va. During the whole of the
Revolutionary war thnt section was the
continued scene of border strife and
hloodehed. A summer never passed
without the settlers having to reeort to
their different neighborhood forts nnd
stations. V heeling. Ramsey's nnd Foul's
were all in this region, nnd their names
rendered familiar by hearing her tell of
... ... i
intereftmg incidents mat occurreu ti
each. Long years ago before those
stories were published under the title of
'Wcitern Adventures," she had been
heard to relate some of the most thrilling
ecenes related there. Betsy Zanc, for
(trength, conrsgo, fun and frolic, was the
admiration of all ; none could outride, out
dance, out run Bet, and few, male or fe
male, wren belter shoL The young
Johnstons lived in the 6nmc valley, and
were fishing in the t-amc stream where
she had often played and fished, when
they were captured by the Indians.
McCullock, who took the famous leap,
was a near nc'ghbor and close family
connection of the Hedges. In fact, du
ring nearly the whole time of her resi
dence in that region, old Colonel Hedge
nnd his three sons", Sol, Jo nnd Silas, the
McCulIocks, Ratnseys. Zincs, nnd a few
others, kept watch and ward of this
whole region, then cut off from almost
nil succor east of the mountains.
Reared in such n family, and among
such noble spirits ns these, even the entire
want of education could not suppress and
keep down those noble principles which
ever adorned and cxhaltsd her throuch
her whole life, Teace having restored
lieMoher relatives, wtto lived in Freder
ick county, Virginia, she took upon her
self the sacred duties or wife nnd mother
both of which stations she pre-eminent"
ly adorned during n long Inc. As n
housekeeper, eo far as her menus extend-,
ed, she wna excelled by few, nnd ns n
mother, no kinder heart tver bent re
sponse to the feeblest wail of infancy,
pone ever labored more assiduously and
wiUbetler "judgment, to instil into the
minds of children all the virtues thnt
adorn human nature, and if .precept and
example would fail, the rod was not
spared, but ever used with prudence and
''In 1802, she and her husband, with
four 6niftll children, left Virginia, nnd
after a long and wearisome journey by
land, reached Ohio county, where they
lived the remainder of their days, which
to her was lengthened out to her eighty
fourth year. "
Blessed with 'an excellent memory,
fond jofreadjng'jjrbich she had learned
to do without tbeTMtVf sckools, devoid
of the wilch burning superstitions of

ucing limy cumpiicu wiiu , iut wmi mc
doctor'H npprobrttion would suggest irnil
prearc Minple remedies that experience
had pointed out in similar cases. But
knowing how nnd when to talk, and when
to keep dilent, careful nursing nnd care
ful nnd strict dieting was her fort, nnd
the blessings of the nick nhvnys followed
her from their bedside
Her charity was co-exteni-ivc with her
means lo all who were really deceiving.
Every day of her long life cecuied hut to j J
increase her veneration for thnt Trovi-
deuce which had crowned nnd crowded
her life and her country with such in
numerable blessings, nnd it really seemed
an extension of that providential cure to
call her hence ere that beloved country
was marred by its blind fratricidal strife.
There was little of interest known of
Thomas' early youth, except that he
joined the Methodist church while quite
a boy, learned the hlncksmith's trade,
nnd lived with and worked for his father's
family until near thirty years of nge,
without wnges or pay. He also was
licensed.a localprcacher at nn curly age.
Carried away by the wonderful stories of
the far west, he followed his father and
kindred and landed in the Green River
country on the eve of n great religious
revival, that soon swept over the land,
and, though he never joined the itinera
cy, and never asked or accepted a dollar
from his church or any of its members,
he devoted his whole energies and
strength until enfeebled by age in advo
cating and defending the religion he pro-
It was the rarest oocnrrence4for him to
spend n Sabbath nt home. Xo hovel
was too humble, no neighborhood too
poor for him to visit. Norlid he con
fine himself to n small circle. A file of
old family almanacs are .till extant, in
the columns ofwliicb can be found mem
orandums of his appointments to preach.
Bacon Creek, in Hardin, .Sugar Run, in
Breckinridge, and Bonders, in Hopkins
frequently occurred, befides numerous
other places in GrnV.son, Muhlenberg,
McLean and Daviess counties.
It was quite a common occurrence with
him to labor hard until noon on Satur
day, mount his horse and start to his ap-
ointment some twenty or thirty miles
away, and again be at home by noon on
Yet amid all this devotion to the cause
of the church, his children were never
heard to cry lor bread, never suffered for
apparel, but Inred equal to nny n the
land, for he was a man or tlie most un
tiring phical energy, industry nnd en
durance. To work hard all day on his
farm, go to his blacksmith hhopnl night,
and work until nil the family were asleep.
nrd again nwnke them in the morning
with the sound of the bellows nnd ham
mer, was his almost daily course during
the prime of life.
As a preacher, his sermons were al
ways of a practical nature, never partak
ing of that wearisome rehash, heard and
reheard for the hundredth time, but some
thing not only practical but original.
No startling crime, no new vice or folly
escaped his withering satire or startling
denunciation ; no new doctrine but he
met nt the threshhold.
There wa9 one doctrine especially
agnintt which he waged a war of exter
mination; a doctrine then professed by
nil denominations in these parts except
his own. He seldom preached a sermon
without giving it a blow. He contended
that it was a doctrine tending to hold out
no encouragement lo virtuous action, nnd
to license nil crime, nnd to fill the land
with insanity. The way he sometimes
handled the advocates of this doctrine
without gloves, is recollected as occur
ring one night at his own house. After
a wearisome day's labor, while the old
gentleman was sitting in his porch, n
stranger rode up about dusk, and re
quested a night's lodging, nnd waa re
quested to alight, and his horse was taken
nnd provided for. The stranger seemed
fluent and communicative but did not re
fer to his calling as a preacher until
after supper, when he developed himself
as a preacher of the strongest Calvcnis
tic faith. The old gentleman at last re
marked: "Yon say you are a preacher,
nnd you really believe that a certain por
tion of mankind were decreed from all
eternity to be saved, and a portion lost T'
!'Most assuredly I do," iris the unhesi
tating reply. Well, for what must I
take you, a knave or n tool, to be spend
ing your time in riding about preaching
the gospel to human beings, whose ac
tions nnd fates are inevitable, and you
cannot change a hair On their heads?"
This was such a home thrust that the
stranger jumped to his feet, declaring that
he would not stay in a roan's house that
would so insult hi n. "If all things are
decreed, 1 suppose your horse will come
to you at the appointed time, but I am
pretty certain that it is not decreed for
me to go after him."
He was equally severe and sarcastic
in bis reproof for any disorderly conduct
during, preaching.and many were the
horse-whippings he was promised, but
none never dared to carry their threats
into execution. His courage was never
disputed, and a smith's arm was consid
ered formidable. He never encouraged
that wild enthusiasm and shouting which
was so common in early times- Although
a man of the most lively sensibility and
excitable feelings, he preferred reasoning
and arguments to mere declamation
and exortation and his sermons were al
ways noted for their argumentative
trength; but there were occasions jrhen
cold reason was lost in the beautiesTand
harmony of creattd words. The'love,
mercies, and tender cares of a dyiug
Savior, which carried, b,Im tp the heights
of sublime pathos nnd native eloquence,
thnt were remembered and talked of for
TO BIS CONTINUED.!
The Commercial Outlook.
Tho country 1ms been so long under
tho burden of financial pressure thnt it
is witlin feeling sense of relief we hnil
the fatnlest glimmerings of returning
prosperity. With what unfeigned de
light then, will the country receive tho
intelligence that rt bright and glorious
coinnioreml futuro is looming up -before
it. The outlook is indeed cheering.
For the benefit of our readers wo will
give some opinions of the press on tho
ubject. The daily Courier-Journal of
the 21st, says: "It can no longer be
doubted thnt wc have nt last pulled
through the commercial slough, aud are
again on hard ground, with tho com
mercial outlook in advance clear and
auspicious." Concerning the previous
dnys' money market, it says : "Tho
money market was comfortably active,
with n well-sustained demand from job
bing and miscellaneous mercantile
The New York Bulletin says: "It
may be doubted whether tit any period
siuco tho close of the war that part ol
the city known as the Dry Goods dis
trict, has exhibited so much real ani
mation as at present."
'Anotherproof of reviving commercial
activity is tho frequent blockades of
drays in Hudson street, at the New
York Central and Hudson street depot,
as well as nt, and along the wharves of
tho coast-wise steamers. Nor are these
signs of reviving commercial activity
confined to the lower part of'thc city.
The liotsla are receiving large acces
sions to their lists of guests, the major
ity of whom are merchants from the
country, oome to cfiect purchases."
We could give other quotations but
lesist, suffice it to say that the news
from every direction, bears the same
tone ns the above.
Tho tendency is decidedly upward
in all the markets. The crops every
where nrc abundant. The European
war is likely to crcalo an active de
mand for our produce, and thnt, too,
with good prices. Thr Presidential,
pqlicy is reviving the hitherto droop
ing spirits of the people. Imlced every
thing bearing upon our commercial in
terests, gives bright hopes of a near-
approaching and most prosperousend
in our histoiy. It is with sincere
pleasure wo pen these reflections and
we are sure that our readers will hear
tily share the pleasure with us.
We should feel devoutly thankful to
the merciful giver of all good, because
he has vouchsafed to us so many
blessing". Let us not forget to return
Him our hearty nnd lasting gratitude,
nnd by patiently nnd persistently con
tinuing in well doing, let us prove our
appreciation of his goodness and mercy
to us. Let all go to work in earnest
to build up the wasted and injured
fortunes of our country. Let every
one "keep clear tho street before his
own door." Let each aud everyone
work with all his might, not nlono for
selfish purposes, but for the general
good of all the people. There is
plenty for all to do. Religious inter
ests are to bo promoted. Educational
institutions are to be fostered. Tem
perance aud moral reform are to be
upheld and sustained. Benevolent
enterprises of various kinds are to be
looked after. A. fraternal kindly
feeling is to be cherished in all the
relations of life. A thousand tbings
looking to the glory of God, nnd the
well being of humanity,' imperiously
demand our services and earnest atten
tions. Let us sec, now that God:;is
so wonderfully. blessing us laa'restored
peace and ti bright prospective com
mercial futurej that we come up nobly
in the discharge of our respective du
ties. Then may wo indeed expect n
truly prosperous nnd happy era to
come nnd to remain with us.
Remember that all question have
two sides ; ono is tho right side, the
other the wropg sido ; ono is the sido
of justice, the other injustice. If you
take tho right side, the just side, ulti
mately men, however much they may
oppose you nnd revile you, will como
to your support. Earth, with all its
powers, will be with you and foryou.and
heaven is pledged to conduct you to
complete success. If you take the
other side, there i3 no power on earth
or heaven that can lead you through
successfully, because it is annotated in
the counsels of heaven that justice and
truiu aione can prevail.
Advice is offensive, not becauso it

This is just what ruins hundreds and

Charged against them. This thing of
buying goods of any .kind on credit is
a most ruinous policy. It adds great

place ho can buy the goods cheaper
from tho wholesale men when he has
cash to pay down. Then it ho sells

Besides tho interest on his money is
worth somelhing. Taken all together,
then, he can nilord to sell nt least
