NEWS AND CITIZEN, THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 1894.
5 owned by the Rev. Jehtel Hendee, father of the distinguished lawyer and statesman ex-Gov. George W. Hendee, to whose silvery voice you will soon have the pleasure of listen ing. The Rev. Mr. Hendee was a clergyman of the Christian denomi nation, and, as I understand, the paper published by him was not de voted to general news but to the dis semination of views of that sect of religionists. It was a modest sheet and compared with the bed blanket publications of to-day would not be imposing. Perhaps the good seed sown by it may have helped to pro duce the pervasion of Christian spirit which is so rife in this community. It was called the Christian Summary. I do not propose to say much of the lawyers who have appeared in this town, but I wish to speak of the first two. The first lawyer who came to live and practice in this town was Augustus Young. He came in 1812 or '13. He was a young man of good talent and an excellent scholar, though perhaps not overstocked with vim and ready action. He remained here but about two years and then removed to Orleans county in this State, where he was twice elected to Congress, a Representative. He afterwards removed to Johnson in this county where he continued practice and published a book en titled "Unity of Purpose," of which he was the author. Its composition showed him to be a man familiar with the learning of the schools, but how sound his reasoning and conclu sions were I was not prepared to judge, as I found it difficult to under stand him. He boldly attacked some of the favorite doctrines of the old philosophers, among them .Kepler, and seemed to think he had swept them all away. Before the expiration of another hundred years this book may be brought to light and the full discovery made that Young was right. Connected with Mr. Young s prac tice in this town there is an anecdote which considerably amused me when told by an early settler. One Elias Kingsley who lived on what is called West Hill, lost a sheep, perhaps the only one he had. There was found on the premises of a neighbor, An drew Luce, a sheep's head which Kingsley thought came off of his lost sheep, lie employed oung to com mence a suit against Luce. Luce employed Judge R. G. Buckley of Waterbury to defend. Young became a little nervous about the case and induced his client to engage Judge Carpenter, also ot Waterbury, to assist. On trial one Samuel Robin son swore that he had often seen Kingsley's sheep and noticed he had a peculiar shaped nose, very large and Roman in form, like the one . found and produced on trial. Judge Bulkley had an extraordinary devel opment of nasal souse, a huge nose. In his argument he insisted that it was a very singular and unsatisfacto ry way to prove the identity of a sheep by the shape and size of his nose after death. Replying to this argument Judge Carpenter claimed - there was nothing singular or unsatis factory about it ; that he could swear to the identity of his brother Bulkley by his nose if he had been dead six months. Aconsiderablecrowd werepresentto witness the sport end the joke creuted the most bursting jollity. In those days the best blackguard won his cases in the lower courts and Kingsley triumphed, probably without right. Soon after Young left Mr. Wm. Hich ardson came to supply his place. He mar ried a daughter ot Nathaniel Butts, before named, by whom he had fivecbildren. When the business of his profession did not take all his time he worked on farms. About 1820 he went to Burlington on some buxiness and it Iwas ascertained that he crossed Lake ; Champlain. He never returned and none of bis friends ever obtained any trace of him. "Whether he fell a victim to sudden, fatal dis ease or "fell among thieves," or like Kuoch t tf old, was deemed worthy to be translated, may not be known till Heaven's jewels are counted up. There may some in this assemblage who like a hunting story. Out ol three or four good ones they have a right to one or two. G v. Butler, who was fond of taking large game, came out from Water bury one day in 1800 and killed a large moose not many rods from the present resi dence ol Alvin Wilkins. In the winter of 1805 0. Tames Wilkins, Uriah Wilkins, Ezra Wilkins and Ephrnim Horn were on the hog back Mountain hunting deer, then considera ble plenty there. When in the vicinity of "Hull's brook"in the town of Worcester they discovered that a moose had panned. They - were all natural hunters, and when they saw the great tracks their blood was up, and thev ' could hardly restrain themselves from start ing off like hounds just let loose from the leash. They finally held a hunter's council. It ' was late in the day; their rations were near ly exhausted. So three of the party com- . menced preparations for camping, and Uriah Wilkins came home, a distance probably of a dozen miles, for supplies of food. As soon as practicable it was prepared and, without a moment's sleep, he immediately started back.' In the morning the camping party commenced the pursuit of the moose with their dogs, which soon overtook the moose; but often he turned back and kept them at bay and then passed on again. These stops gave the hunters time to come up and the moose was overtaken by them near night in the town of Calais. When they first saw him he was on a side hill and by bis fearfully pow erful demonstrations was keeping the dogs at a respectful distance. As the moose turned with his head towards the party, when he first discovered tbem, Horn aimed a bullet at the middle of his forehead. At the discharge of the gun the moose fell to t he ground but immediately rose again. Thereupon Ezra Wilkins fired his gun and happened to cut the jugular vein. So then the moose soon , bled to death. When they skinned him they found Horn's bullet was well aimed, but it . did not penetrate the skull. The moose was the largest one ever killed in this part of the State. Uriah Wilkins overtook the party about midnight on the day they killed the . moose. They returned by way of Montpelier, bringing the meat and skin on a sled. I will omit the particulars of a very excit- : ing hunt for a large gray wolf, in which most , of the men and grown up boys of the town participated. But we have the greatest bear - story that the world can produce, very in telligent, full readers of that kind of lore have often so said. The full particulars are given in an article published in the Lamoille Newsdealer in April, lmis, and more recent ly in the Mirror and Farmer. I do not intend to aire them here. We have all read or heard of old Gen. 1'utna n' g"i'i into a ' and 'looting a wolf, when tbe dogs would not enter. Well, that wns baby performance onipnred with our gre.it bear hunt, which took place 43 yearn ago thee-suing winter. everything about u in greai. i ue noni was also on Mansfield Mountain. I he bears. tbre of them, were driven into a corridor corner on that' mountain and after a fierce Hunt with them there, two were driven into ne rave and one into another. The cave, a deep one, was several time entered by one ol the hunters with great difficulty, and tbe bears, two of them, were shot by him aud one bv one dratrired from the cave with such as sistance as tbe two others could render. They weighed about iiOU pounds each and were brought off of the mountain that night, a distance of four wiles. Allusion to the military history of Stowe in the war of 1812 at I'luttsliurgh is not made on account of nnv brilliant performance of its men in the Held of battle, but to show the kind of stuff tbe early settlers were made of tlieir pluck and their constant and in dotnitutile perseverance and endurance under adverse drcuniBtuncH and great difficulties. When the battle of I'litttsburgh took place there were two companies in town called the "Light Infantry and he "Hoodwooil. Besides these there were a few men who be- lonued to a company in Washington county called the "Light Horse." The British canio into I Idttsburirh on freemen meeting day. Cannonnding was hentd he'e the next day. At night news cume of the condition ol things at riuttsburgh and tbe adjacent country. The citizens of htowe were moused. 1 lie night wus dark, the nun tell in torrents and the roads were very muddy. No military officers attempted to call out any man or ex ercise any control over them. However, a portion of ull the companies and some that belonged to no company, to the number of SO men, got together about midnight, and with no rations, guns or ammunition, and some of them poorly clothed and some scarce ly shod at all, started for Waterbury over a halt made muddy road through tbe dense woods which enclosed it nearly all the way, with the rain desecending as for a freshet upon their half protected bodies. They reached Waterbury at about daylight and there found portions of companies from Montpelier and other towns gathered on a piece of ground in a kind of parade, and Col. John was making a speech to them. The Stowe men joined the throng and by Col. Peck's advice they proceeded to Burlington without observing any particular order, ob taining small quantities of food in houses as they parsed. At that time a man by the name of Eldridge kept a hotel some three miles out of Burlington. Tbe men asked permission to rest their tired limbs on his premises that night. He refused leave but disregarding that they filled bis barns and sheds with lodgers. In the morning some of the Stowe men found that a Hock of turkies had occupied a higher position through tbe night than they had. In the morning they gathered in parade near the college in Burlington, when Col. Peck made another speech, in which he signi fied his purpose to cross the lake to Pitts burgh, but declined to advise others to go or not go. To ascertain who was disposed to go with him he requested thatthemenshould form a liue and when he pronounced the word "march," those who declined to go should step three paces to the rear. More thnn one-half reinuined firm in their position. At this time there were at Burlington 150 men from Stowe. Some started later in the night thnn the first squad and some the next duy. The Stowe men all submitted to the command of the Captain of thelight inlantry company. They drew their rations, procured some beef and pork and a large kettle in which to boil their meat, but before it was half cooked the drum called them to the wharf to be ready for crossing. In great confusion they strung the half cooked meat in bugs upon their shoulders and ns they went the grease rnn down their backs and dropped on their heels. Large loaves of breud were carried by tnrusting a eticK through them and shouldoring them. As they went they drew their guns. Friday about sun down as many as could be taken went abourd the open top sail boat, which, when viewed a little distance from the shore looked like a sheep yard. After about two hours sailing the boat was becalmed and ue gau to leak. To make any progress the men were called upon by turns to bail and row all night. About daybreak they reached Ketch- urns Landing in Peru, not deeming it pru dent to go direct to Pittsburgh. Forty men from Stowe crossed in the boat. More came over Saturday and Sunday following. The main battle was fought and the British de feated on Sunday. The men from Stowe were not engaged in action but they were in situations of danger and among tbe flying bombs and bullets. None were killed or se riously wounded. The record of Stowe in the war to put down the rebellion m thought to b highly creditable. All the calls of the government for soldiers were pfomptly met, and at tbe close ot the war .stowe had a credit reckoned in years, and including 13 men who enlisted for three years in tbe regular army, of 87 years. Ot the men who weut forth from Stowe to take part in that terrible stuggle it may be said with entire truth that no braver am ever faced the perils of war. Their valor fully sustained the glorious reputation of the Green Mountain Boys. One ot fetowe's boys who enlisted at the age of 18 and served nearly four years, carried the colors of his regiment and at the battle of Petersburgh pluced them on the enemy's breastworks. In recognition of which and his unflinching dis charge of duty he was promoted to a first lieutenantcy. This is bnt a single instance. An examination ot the very able and com plete report and record ot Hon.Hobt. Savage included in the history of Stowe will bIiow that it is almost invidious to single out any particular Stowe soldier. 1 am happy to assure the people of Stowe that provision has been made for rescuing the Btory of these noble lives from time's oblivious obscuration and to perpetuate their name and lame to the latest posterity. 1 had contemplated a few words on the natural advantages of Stowe as a residence, but I am reminded that I havealready taken time that belongs to others, and I abruptly withdraw.
