Perhaps, Kontle leader, you do not know where Hiiwleyville is. No.' Well, lt'8 your own luult, for she is right where she always has been, and has never tried to Skulk nor hide herself. liawleyville is built on one of the oldest and ripest sections oi land in North America. It is built on what is known as made land, so is a portion ot Chicago, the only dilt'erence bciiiK that Chicago land basmostof it been made dining the last decade, is a change from the original plan and is made from banana peels, broken-down hoop skirts, cigar slumps, corks, and street sweepings in general. Wliat the liawleyville land was or iginally made trora is a question that has puz zled, mystified and paralyzed the minds ot theological and geological students and deep thinkers in general for ages, but unlike the Chicago land, it seems to be an indisputed fact that it was made during the same week and Irom the same material that the celebrated and seemingly indestructible great Kocky mountain ranges were, and this land has been slowly maturing and settling down to bed rock and a solid basis for thousands of years, so when we speak oi liawleyville, we always refer to her solid and stable foundations, and not to the temporary destructible structures erected from time t a time above them. Just think what has transpired in the world around since the foundations ot liawleyville were laid. She ante-dates the Pyramids of Kgypt anil the great Clnnese wall, l'ompeli anil tier- culaneum, the rise ot Baker's Furniture Jsusi ness and the tall ot the Roman empire. Uel- shazzar's feast and the hand writing on the wail, the hirtu ot coinmims ana the tirst Con necticut river shad, would be comparatively fresh entries in her diary, as would also the lite and death struggles of LydiaPinkham and Julius Ciesat'. It she could speak she would mention as but the happenings of yesterday the flood and the wanton destruction ot En glish taa in Boston harbor. She could have given Adatn and Eve valuable pointers on 'what 1 know about the early days ot suc cessful gardening," and could point to the time when the running of railroad trains was even more detrimental to the interests ot the traveling public than is the present schedule on the Berkshire Division. The noble red men of t he torest shot down the bison and the bear, built their council fires and signal mokes, ierked their venison and roasted the pale faced captiveon these same grounds, and the smoke from hundreds ot tepees curled heavenward from among her stately forest trees. The great frog and tadpole pond north ot liawleyville was undoubtedly the half-way supply station on the main trail between the fertile clam banks ot Long Island sound and the great inuskrat hatcheries ot the- norm. When the foundations ot liawleyville were laid, Mark Anthony had never heard of Cleo patra, and George Washington had never been called upon to choose between a lie and a wol loping, and so on ad-inflnitum. We claim lor liawleyville an antiquity deserving ot public acknowledgement an I recognition. That she will become famous some day is beyond question. The two great and growing indus tries of the place now are Bilker's furniture business and the equally successful pollywog hatcheries in the great north frog ponds. Baker's furniture establishment is now so well known from one side of the state to the oth er that it needs no mention, but the pollywog hatcheries are really wonderful. They are located near the Shepaug car shops and em brace some three acres of land and water and muskrat-built islands. The nutritious quali ties of the water, its temperature, the altitude and everythingelsehere at liawleyville seems to be Just right for the successful birth and propagation ot pollywogs. The layers are wonderfnlly productive, and we venture to say that one full grown native layer can, when she feels like it, lay eggs enough in one night to almost stop navigation in any slug gish or tidewater stream of onfy a lew fath oms' debth, and we can produce pollywogs enough in one good warm July week to stock fairly well every river, irrigating ditch and laguna in the great state of Texas. We will tell you more of Hawley ville anon, but we are too busy to write often. Call and see us when you visit liawleyville. A. (i. BAKER, New Furniture Warerooms, Opposite Union Depot, Hawlewille.

Tbe re-union of the old gallant 17th Connecticut Infantry, which is to be held in Newtown on August 28, has a special local Interest. A. W. Peek was in com mand of Company D during the three days battle at Gettysburg. Maj. A. G. Brady, commanding the old 17th, in his official report to the government, said, "The coolness and bravery displayed by the oflicers and men of Company D, ex ceeded anything I ever saw." The re port of Maj Brady is full of the part tak en by the 17th regiment at Gettysburg, is given in full. The report is taken from the government oflicial records of the Union and Confederate armies, Scries I, Volume 27. It is as follows : KErOKT OF MAJ ALLEX G. BRAKY, SEVEN TEENTH CONNECTICUT INFANTRY. Gettysburg, Pa., July 4, 1893. General: I compliance with instruct ions from headquailers, I have the hon or to uiiike the following report of the part taken by the Seventeenth Pegimeut Connecticut Volunteers in the engage ment of the 1st, 2d and 3d instant: The regiment arrived in Gettysburg be tween 1 and 2 p. m. of the 1st instant, and was marched with the other regi ments of the brigade through and to the lower end of the town, and there halted for a moment, h our companies were im mediately ordered out bv Brigadier Gen eral Aiiie., under command of Maior Brady, to the right of the bridsre at the lower end of the town, with instructions to throw out two companies as skirmish ers, the other two to be held as a reserve, ana to taise ana noia the brick house to the left and beyond the bridge. Two companies were thrown out, and deploy ed as skirmishers as rapidly as possible to me rignt oi uie Driuge,aiong tne creek. The other t'vo, held as reserve, were ad vanced in line, loading and faring as rap idly as possible, making at the same rime a left wheel, so as to swing our right around the house, the reserve keeping near and conforming to the movements of the skirmishers. When near the house, the enemy onen- ed upon us with shot, shell, grape and canister, which retarded our advance for a moment,until Major Brady dismounted, went in tront or tne line ot skirmishers, and led them on until quite near the house. The enemy, anticipating our movements, shelled the house, and set it on lire. We, however, held our ground. ;nd held the skirmishers in check. Their loss up to this time was at least 5 to 1, most of the men in the four companies being excellent marksmen and having volunteered for this occasion. They con sisted of Companies A, B, F, and K, com manded, respectively, by Captains ilc- Quhae, Ilobbie, Allen and McCarty. We continued skirmishing briskly un til Major Bradv received orders from Brigadier-Genera! Ames to draw in his skirmishers and return to town as rapid ly as possible, and take command of his regiment. The order was obeyed, and we tell back in good order, skirmishing with the enemy, who advanced as we re treated, ana tried to cut us oil and cap ture us before we got to the town, but we foiled them in this attempt by mak ing a circuit and entering the town near trie upper end, and soon ioined the re mainder of the regiment, which we found near the lower end of the town. The loss in the four companies under Major Brady was 3 men killed, 1 captain and 1 lieutenant wounded, a sergeant and 6 men taken prisoners. I would here state that I had great dif ficulty m drawing in Captain McCarty s company, K, as they were so earnestly engaged and making such sad havoc among the rebels. Tbe remainder of the regiment (six companies), under I-ieutenant-Colonel iowler, advanced witu the other regi ments oi tne brigade to the lei t and front of the town and directly in the rear of the 107th Ohio Volunteers, in close col umn by division; were ordered to the front; advanced and deployed at double quick, and held their ground notwith standing the rush to the rear of troops directly in advance until ordered by the brigade commander to fall back, which order was obeyed in good order, the men loading and taring as they fell back. Lieutenant-Colonel Fowler was killed when the regiment advanced and deploy ed. Captain Moore was killed about this time, and Captain French and Lieutenant Ojuinn were wounded, and marry of the men were killed, wounded and taken prisoners. . - When the regiment reached the town, tbe four companies under Major Jirady were still skirmishing with the enemy, and remained so until Brigadier-General Ames sent an aide with orders for Major Brady to return with hi3 command and assume command of bis regiment, he be ing the only field oflicer of the regiment present. Upon arriving in the town, Major Brady assumed command of the regiment and reported immediately to Brigadier-General Ames for instructions. The enemy were at this time advancing rapidly through the town. The regiment was immediately deployed in the streets, and fired several volleys into the ranks of the enemy, which thinned their ranks, and retarded their advance. jWe kept the enemy from advancing through the town until ordered to clear the streets of our men xor the purpose of planting a bat tery. The battery not being placed in position as intended, and the regiment being in line on the sidewalk, the enemy took advantage of this, and, with a su perior force, rushed through the main street, which compelled us to fall back, which we did reluctantly, but not with out contesting the ground inch by inch. As we retreated, we loaded, halted and poured destructive volleys into their ranks, which cleared the main street of them several times, but we found the enemy too many for us. They poured in from every street in overwhelming num bers, which broke our ranks. Upon ar riving near the battery on Cemetery Hill, the regiment was baited, and formed in line of battle fronting the town. . About this time Major-General How ard, who was in the thickest of the battle, regardless of .danger, asked if be had troops brave enough to advance to a stone wall across a lot toward the town, and said he would lead them. We re plied, "Yes, the Seventeenth Connecticut will," and advanced at once to the place indicated, remained a few momenta and again advanced across another lot still nearer the town and behind a rail fence at the upper end of the town, which po sition we held until late in the evening, exposed to a galling fire from tbe ene my's sharpshooters, when tbe whole reg iment was ordered out on pk ket.and per formed that duty until 2 o'clock of the 2d instant, w hen we were relieved, and - cook a position oenina tne rail fence and 150 paces farther to the right of the place we occupied before going out on picket. We remained in this position, exposed to the enemy's batteries and sharpshoot ers, until 7 p. m., when we were ordered to the extreme right, behind a stone wall on each side of a lane, below the battery opposite the cemetery entrance. Two companies were advanced to the grain field near the woods, through which the - enemy were rapidly advar-ing. We cov ered the wall on each side of the lane by compelling about 200 stragglers, who had no commander, to fall into our line. We had not mre than time to form behind the wall bcre the enemy were discover ed ' advancing rapidly noon us on our right and a full brigade obliquely toward our left. When within 150 paces of ns. we poured a destructive fire upon them, which thinned their ranks and cheeked their advance. We fired several volleys by battalion, after which they charged upon ns. We bad a band-to-band conflict with them, firmly held our eround. and drove them back. Soon after, some of the trooos on our left giving way, the rebels succeeded In getting in our rear. We again drove them back and held our position. It was during this conflict that Major Brady was wounaea Dy a iragment of shell, which hit him upon the right shoulder. After the enemy had been driven bade. the tiring ceased, excepting occasional shots from their sharpshooters. We were relieved by the Fourth Ohio Volunteers, and were ordered to change i rom to tne leit oenina a wall running at right angles with the one we had just oc cupied, and fronting the town, and where tne enemy enterea on our left. We re mained at this wall all night and during the whole of the 3d instant, exposed to a cross-fire of the rebel batteries and their sharpshooters. With the latter our best marksmen exchanged shots, and succeed ed in dislodging many of them. When the regiment entered the engage ment on the 1st instant, it numbered 17 officers and 3t!9 enlisted men. We report at the present time 9 officers and 120 en listed men. Capt Wilson French and Lieutenant Bartram are the only officers known to have been taken prisoners. The former was wounded In the first day's engagement. We are uo znre that either of them was paroled. .lne regiment behaved gallantly. Jo troops in the world could behave better. Both officers and men are deserving of great credit for their coolness and brav ery throughout the entire three days' bat- tie. There are many deserving of especial mention for bravery on the field, but th e y are so numerous I will not undertake to give their names. The coolness and bravery displayed by the officers and men of Company D exceeded anything I ever saw. 1 am, general, your most obedient servant, A. G. .

The Measure to Repair the Boad Between Sandy Hook and Berkshire Carried. Detailed Ac count of the Meeting. The special town meeting, called for last Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock, to take into consideration the gravelling or otherwise hardening the road-bed be tween Sandy Hook and Berkshire vil lage, was attended by about 40 or tiie voting citizens of Newtown, most of whom were from Sandy Hook and di rectly iialctested in the improvement of the road in question. The meeting was called to order by Town Clerk M. J. Houlihan and Judge Michael J. Bradley was unanimously chosen chairman. Tbe warning was read by Mr Houlihan and on request the names of the petitioners were also read. Mr Bradley then asked for remarks and Lawrence Lillis wanted to make a motion to appropriate $500 for the road and have tbe work done right away. G. W. Bradley said be had traveled'over the road a great deal and was as much interested in having it put in good order as any one, but he hoped that those present would not insist on so large an outlay as he thought it was not needed. He explained where the por tions of the road were that needed re pairing tbe most were, and thought the w ork could be done for a much smaller sum of money. Mr Bradley was asked to draft a resolution by the chair, and while he was doing it the following com munication was read from Poad Inspec tor Aaron San'rd : To the Selectmen of Newtown : Tbe section of road from Sandy Hook bridge towards Zoar, terminating at Botsford Hill road, is not a first-class road. The hill near Augur's slaughter house is full oi coDDie stones, ana ugut siuues in uie wheel ruts in many places. A puddle of water near James Carey's house could be easily avoided by rounding up the road. 1 think 10 days work with Mr Ives' machine, or $100, would make a first- class road of this section. Mr Bradley's resolution was then of fered, which wasHo tbe effect that tbe selectmen be authorized to go ahead and repair the road where it needed it. T. J. Corbett wanted to amend the resolu tion by adding the names of Henry G. Curtis and G. W. Bradley to tbe board of selectmen and have the work done be fore October 1, at an expense of not less than 400 or more tban GUO. The question was raised by C II. Northrop whether, as the warning read, the meeting bad a right to go ahead and borrow money, aa there was no money in the treasury at present. G. W. Brad ley and W. J. Brew thought it would be all right and according to custom and Judge Bradley decided the meeting bad a right to arrange for the money mat ters. G. W. Bradley objected to Mr Cor bett's amendment as be thought it was not necessary to expend so large an amount. Mr Corbett said he bad talked with experts and it was their opinion it would take nearly this amount. C. H. Northrop thought that the meet ing should not make any larger outlay than was necessary, on account of the town's financial condition, although be was in perfect sympathy with the desire for good roads. Lawrence Lillis re marked that they wanted a good road and were going to have it. The ques tion was called for and a vote taken on the amendment, which was carried, and the original motion lost. Following is tbe vote, as the chair decided it carried : Voted, that the selectmen, Henry G. Curtis and George W. Bradley, are here by authorized to repair the road from the postofiice in Sandy Hook to Berk shire, as in their best judgement they may deem best, and to borrow the mon ey to pay for the same, to expend a sum not less than $100 or more than $C00, to be used if found necessary, the bal ance to remain in the treasury. Also that the work be completed before Octo ber 1, 1S93. --- ; : Miss Nellie M. Tyrrell passed Sunday at Roxbury Falls.
