To tbe Editor of the Alexandria Gazette:
A recent publication ia oue of tbe
hmdon (England) papers gives an
cxcccdingly interesting account of
Warwick Castlc (Warwick, England)
whieh will dotibtloss awaken aome
thought of aucient family connections
in Ihe miada of a numberof the readers
of your ancient and valuablo paper
(valuable for its long oxistenoe as the
leading mcssengcr of news to your
city and surrounding community).
Echoea from tho past could give us
back the names of many who ohce trod
proudly the atrocts of Alexandria
(Belle Haven), to whom the name of
Warwick was not unfamilliar. Wash?
ington, Lee, Aloxander, Newtou,
Huoter, Robinson, Taylor. and a host
of othors, some few descendanta of
tbese and others may now be living,
aud who no doubt daily peruse the
pages of "Tbe Aleiandria Gazette'"
with all tbe pleasure of fortner years
(before the war).
Tho castle of Warwick, or Warwick
Castle, was built some nine huudred
years after tho town of Warwick was
founded, so tho town is much more
ancient, it having been founded A. D.
1. and was first called Caer-Coc, then
tho iiamo was changod to "Werhica"
in the timo of the Anglo-Saxons. Caer
Con having beeo destroyed by the
PtCta and Scotta, was occupied and re
built by King Caractacua who came
upon tho sceno at tbat time and named
tho town "Warhica." So that the
present town of Warwick is fairly au
eient, being 1910 years old Ethel
lleila daagfator of King Alfred founded
tl.e Castle of Warwick A. 1>. 015. It
played a very eonsiderable part iu the
ravagea of tbat aaotioo of England
by tho Panes.
Bir Walter Scott called it tho fairest
motiument of ancient and cuivalrous
splendor whieh lemains uninjured by
time. And no doubt but that Sir
Walter knew soinething about castlca
and chtralry also. Its most famous
lower i^ called "Caesar's" and this
niagnilicent structuro bas stood in
dignity and majcsty uncbangod by
time for nenrly on thousand years, and
undaniageil by war for all this time,
being as lirm now a.s the roek on which
it is founded. No visitors are admitted
to this tower, below which, deop down,
is tbe terriblo dungeon in which tbe
uofortunate nriaonara rotted out tbeir
I loin tho lodge to the castle tho ap
proach is cut througb solid ruck for
one huudred yards. Tho sceno which
burtta upon tho visitor after passing
througb tho big duiible gateway?tbe
sight of the magniticent irregular eaa
lellatod pile of tho feudal barons of
Warwick is not eaaily forgetable. In
side the castle everything is just as in?
teresting as oo thooutside. A prieelew
collection of ptcturea, aroaor, and ob
jecteof veitu are housed here. Tba
most interesting rOOOO is tbe great ball,
wbich conteina-tbe gigantic armor aod
waapooa of tbe great and fonnidable
E n I Guy, of Waiwick.
This 'Caractacua ' who rebojtt the
town of Warwick opposed the Romans
and was the liist kingof Brittauy. He
aurrendered to claudius Caeaar. His
deacendanta lield many prominent
poeitiona in England, and tho name
Caractacua Snally changed toCasa-'ock
and Craddock, then Newtou. John
li ek was Lord of Newton, Tho
name Caractacua died out altogether,
and only "Newtou" remained. It is
iotareatiog to know tbat tbe record of
tbe deecenl from Ckractacua tho first
king of !5rittany to the Newton family
of Virginia and its brancbes is about as
parfect a* can be. I guess all of our
lOCeetora were once privates, and sav
ages. Are we any better off today?
