NEWS AND CITIZEN, THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 1894.

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.
