I wr ? ituated in what was called Market ? but is now Court street, a * ? eet only East ot Main street. My irst recollection of it is that it was an ibandoned market house, with hooks or meat along the side, but used only or a meeting place for boys on holi- j lays, or a nesting place for hogs and eese. The rear end was used as a ?all alley where men who have since ?ecome distinguished in both civil and lilitary life, spent many afternoons a playing the then popular game of 'hand-up " Later, our city fathers, we had city athers, in those days, whose authority as supreme, realized the need of a 'own Hall. The old open door wajs ere partly filled with brick and con erted into windows; a new ftoOTWOB ut in, a platform about 16 inches igh at one end of the room, benches, tove &c, were provid"d, and for ears in ante bellum davs it was used y the debating society of the town, nd by travelling troupes who there ave concerts. For a while it was used sa daguerrean gallery,photographs eing then unknown. Later a shed for toring fi-e apparatus was erected at ie East end. After the war, the town treasury Hk? ie pockets of the citizens, was very ght and as whisky selling was a very rofitable business, an active young ian rented the Town Hall, as a bar oom. As is frequently the case, tbe usiness flourished and little respect as paid to the time of niRht, so long s the customers would remain.

The cry of fire and lurder did not check the onslaught ntil the destruction was complete. 'hen the assailants scattered.
