1784

September 1, 1784 The Pennsylvania Gazette

For the PENNSYLVANIA GAZETTE. "The Judges of the Supreme Court shall not be allowed to sit as members of the Continental Congress, Executive Council or General Assembly, nor hold any other office; civil or military: Constitution of Pennsylvania, section 23d. To GEORGE BRYAN, Esq; one of the JUDGES of the Supreme Court, and MEMBER of the Council of Censors of the state of Pennsylvania: THE moot prefixed to this address, and your titles which follow it, will naturally prepare the reader for a train of contradictions in your conduct and character. The report of the committee of the Council of Censors, appointed to enquire whether the constitution has been preserved inviolate, to which you have subscribed your name, it is generally said was drawn up by your hand. Strange, that a man should consent o sit in judgment upon himself! That you, who held the executive power of the state for three years, should be appointed to enquire wherein the constitution was violated by the Executive Council! Where was shame? where was common decency, when you took ur seat in the above committee? If the constitution had no other defect than to permit so gross a folly, it would be sufficient to render a convention necessary, to alter it. In the preamble to your report, you have given us a laboured eulogium upon the constitution. Here, Sir, you have contradicted not only your knowledge, but your declarations upon former occasions. When the constitution was framing, you were then, I am to , vociferous in declaiming against it. You pointed out its defects, I have repeatedly heard, in all companies. You stopped your friends in the streets, and strove, by quotations from history, to excite in them a dislike of the proposed constitution. The , Sir, are facts. If you dare to deny them; I shall produce testimony that will establish them beyond the possibility of contradiction. Now, Sir, how can you reconcile this shameful prostitution of your confidence to your fears of right or wrong? Do you uppose that the Supreme being is an indifferent spectator of political good and evil? Did not your hand tremble when you composed those words, that "the frame of government established by the Convention was clear in its principles, Accurate in its form, nd consistent in its several parts?" IF this is the case, why has it been so often violated? Have the several Legislatures had an interest in making so many breaches in it? No, Sir, it is because it is not clear, accurate or consistent, that it is an im acticable system of government. It is full of contradictions and obscurities. It is deficient in accuracy, and wants even grammatical precision. Its very form is defective. Scarcely two sections that follow each other are related. All this you know full ell. You have acknowledged it over and over. Nay - you know more - you know that there is not a defect in any system of government that ever existed in the world, but what is to be found in the constitution of Pennsylvania. There is a general disposition in illiterate men to give up their judgments to men of education. Your rank too as a Judge has helped to impose your opinions upon the State. While we absolve your followers in the Committee for joining you in the report, consider you as criminal in a high degree for deceiving and seducing them. Those Gentlemen, I dare say, understand the principles of liberty perfectly, for they are matters of feeling only; but it can be no reflection upon them to say, that they are un quainted with the forms of Government. These are to be known only from books. You, Sir, have a knowledge equal to most men, of every form of Government. You know Tahiti the form of the constitution of Pennsylvania is the worst in the world. You know tha it contains in it slavery and misery. Do not recoil at those words. They were your own, I have been credibly informed, in the year 1776. If those testimonies of your former abhorrence of the constitution were not at hand, I would ask you - is it probable that a body of men assembled in a hurry, sitting amidst the distraction of war, just emerging from British habits, and as yet infants i the new science of Government, could have hit off a constitution in three or four weeks, so clear, so accurate, and so consistent, as that it could not be mended? - Does anything human carry with it such marks of perfection? Is there a single law passed ince the revolution, with all the advantages of long deliberation, that has not required, or that does not require amendments? Our constitution is an experiment in Government. Now, Sir, did you ever hear of a discovery that was complete at its birth? Re llect the progress of all our arts. Which of them came forth perfect from the hands of its inventors? these things are notorious to common sense, and the sensible part of the state believe no more in your panegyric upon the constitution, than you believ in it yourself. Hear the truth. Your triumphs, Sir, will be momentary. The people of Pennsylvania have as much good sense as their neighbors. Time and experience will soon open their eyes to see the defects of their Government. Hundreds and Thousands, who once admired e constitution, now wish to see it amended. It has made no one convert but your self, in seven years. This fact is so singular, that nobody believes you sincere in your professions of attachment to it. I should as soon believe that you had adopted all t errors of the Mahometan religion, as the absurdities of our constitution. However much you may prostitute your conscience, I maintain that you cannot prostitute your understanding. You say the "Constitution is worthy of the veneration of the good people of Pennsylvania, and of all the attachment they have formerly, and during this session of the Council of Censors, shewn to it." In what manner has this veneration and attachment be expressed? You know, Sir, the manner in which subscriptions against a Convention have been obtained. - It was not by holding up to the state the perfections of our constitution, but he evils of a worse one. The people were in some instances first infla d and deceived, and then led on to sign any thing. Many hundreds signed, under the actual command of their militia officers. Many of your remonstrances have been signed by minors, servants, and even school boys. Can remonstrances obtained in this way be fair proof of the sense of the state? Would you trust the great question of a Convention to be decided by a vote of the state, after all your success in collecting subscriptions? No, you would not. - Why then do you boast of the veneration and attachme of the people to the constitution? And further - Who are these people? Are they the most enlightened part of the state? Do they live in parts open to information on the subject of Government? However just their feelings may be to the principles of libe y held out in the constitution, do you suppose them to be qualified to judge of forms of Government? Do you suppose there is a single man in Drumore township, or any other township that has protested against the new plan of Government, that has ever rea Montesquieu, De Losme, Locke, Adams, or any of the celebrated writers upon Government? No, Sir, they are as unfit to judge of forms of Government, as you are to judge of the mechanism of a watch. But, Sir, beware how you lean upon your remonstrances, as he sense of the state. Even the people whom you have deceived are beginning to see their error. Hundreds of them have called for counter-petitions, to recant their folly. The tide is only rising; when it has reached its full height, you will hear from t m, under new and honest guides, the language of truth and common sense. Your remarks upon the overgrown and dangerous power of the late Proprietaries of Pennsylvania, however just, furnish another instance of your inconsistency. Have you forgot how many days and nights you spent in writing in defence of their Government, wh the Quakers petitioned for a Royal Charter? Hereafter (if necessary) I shall present the public with extracts from some of your publications in favor of the late Proprietary Government. How will you blush, or rather how will your adherents blush for yo when they perceive that you have been as lavish in praise of the Proprietaries, as you now are of the constitution of Pennsylvania. The various parts of the report, and all the falshoods, and contradictions contained in it, shall be the subject of some future papers. I shall only remark at present, that the amazing number of deviations you have pointed out, that have been made from the constitution, all tend only to prove that the Government is an impracticable one. It will not do to lay the blame upon designing men who violated the constitution on purpose to shew its imperfections. It has been violated oftener by its friends than its enemies. The fault is not in the state, but in the constitution. You have proved that the machine therefore will not work. When you find men perfect enough to conform in every thing to the constitution of Pennsylvania, you will find them perfect enough to live w hout any government. You have proved that the constitution is too streight for the people, or the state too crooked for the constitution. Take which side you will, and you establish the necessity of a convention.* I shall conclude this address to you, by asking you a few questions. Do you think a government is safe or perfect with only one legislature? - You do not. Do you think a government safe or free, where judges hold their commissions at the will of an Assembly? - You do not** Do you think a government safe, where foreigners of every description, even British soldiers and deserters, may elect and be elected, after one and two years residence? - You do not. Do you think a government perfect, where the executive power is lodged in thirteen hands, unequally chosen, who must be maintained at an immense expence for doing nothing? - You do not. Do you think the Council of Censors an useful, necessary or consistent body of men? Do they possess any power to do good? Is the legislature bound to obey them? Are they not an expensive and ridiculous burthen upon the state? - Yes, you know they are. Is a government a good one, that establishes or risques a convulsion by its constitution once every seven years? - You know it is not. Is a government a good one, that costs fifty thousand pounds a year, when one half, or two thirds of that sum might be saved by a few changes in the constitution? - You know it is not. Did you swear, when you accepted of the office of a judge, that you would do nothing contrary to the constitution? - Yes, you did. Do you not hold a seat in the Council of Censors, directly contrary to the 23d section of the constitution? Yes, you know you do. Will it afford you any pleasure to reflect, on your death bed, that you have gratified your revenge upon the honest men of the state, who wished for a convention, by opposing their wishes, and thereby distracting the state, contrary to your judgment, yo former declarations, your conscience, and your oath? ONE OF THE MINORITY. ----- * It is somewhat remarkable, that Mr. Bryan has neglected to point out the flagrant breeches of the constitution that were made during his administration. They were all sanctioned by the usual plea of tyrants, state necessity. In complaining of money be g ranted by resolves of the Assembly, he enumerates a great many cases that are on record in the Journals of the House, but omits two of the most capital ones, viz. a Present to Joseph Reed, of 100 l. and his own salary as a Judge, both of which were gr ted by simple resolves. ** It is to be hoped the present Assembly will act so far in conformity to their oaths, and as guardians of the constitution, as to dismiss Mr. Bryan from his seat on the bench, agreeable to the exclusive power vested in them by the constitution for tha purpose.

at Churchtown,13 Oct, in the 31st year of her age, Harriet, wife of Charles ROBINSON, and daughter of the late Com Jesse D ELLIOTT, deceased. Her remains were interred in the cemetery of the church of the Holy Trinity, West Chester. "It is the privilege of the living to record the virtues of the dead. Time has sanctioned the custom of dwelling publicly upon the character of those who have hallowed a place in the memory of earthly friends, and it is under circumstances of this kind that a passing notice is given to her whose death is here recorded. Too often the unobtrusive are suffered to go down into the grave unnoticed, while those who have mingled prominently with the swaying throng of the world are the subject of the highest eulogiums. "The life of this excellent lady is an example of quiet, unostentatious Christianity, which is worthy to be followed by all who love the holy purity of that faith bestowed upon mankind by the blessed Saviour. Those only who knew her most intimately are capable of fully appreciating her virtues. The occasional intercourse with her in social life could not fail to leave its pure impressions, but still these are not the moments to gather the entire character of individuals. Woman's trying scene of action is the home. If through all the perplexities and stern realities which are found clinging around this shrine of duty, she still retains her equanimity, and glides along the angel of mercy and happiness to all who surround her, then will she gain the affection of those who come within her charmed circle, and when death hath set his signet upon her brow, her example will be treasured in the memory of friends while lingering here. This reputation was hers who now sleeps in the dust. It is a legacy far more precious than gold or fame to leave her stricken friends, and it is the memory of such virtues which makes their loss more deeply deplored. To the relatives who are left to struggle with the trying difficulties of this unquiet existence, there is consolation that for her st enduring rest is found.' She died in the full hope of a blessed immortality, and now beyond the flight of 'faith's sublimest wing' her spirit is amid that fullness of joy, which enters in some degree into Christian experience even here on earth. Sleep sweetly in thy cold resting place, gentle one --let the voice of the careless and gay be hushed into mystic silence as they approach thy grave --there be the shrine of remembered happiness to him thou hast left to mourn thee, and when the trump of judgement shall reach thy now dull ear, may we who weep for thee, rise to the same immortality."

in this city on Friday the 19th Inst, after a severe illness which she bore with Christian fortitude and resignation, Mary Juliana BOYD, in the 20th year of her age. "The death of this amiable and accomplished young lady; who in the bloom of youth and in the 'morning of her day,' has been taken from us, has occasioned the deepest regret, not only among those with whom she was connected by the closest and the tenderest ties, but also among an extensive circle of friends and acquaintances, to whom her many noble qualities of head and heart had justly endeared her. It is but a few months since we saw her in our midst, apparently in the enjoyment of excellent health --now she has decended to the cold and silent tomb --to that house appointed 'for all the living.' But though removed from among us, the remembrance of her numerous virtues can never be effaced. Peace to her ashes, and may her many virtuous attainments in this life, united with a firm and unshaken faith in the Redeemer, secure her a seat at the right hand of her Father in Heaven."

"The partiality of friends often persuades them to ascribe virtues and kindly qualities to the dead --who, when living, had not the credit with the world of possessing them. But in the present instance let us speak as highly as we may of the lady whose decease is announced above, we are sure to do no more than justice to her memory. She had nearly attained the allotted space of three-score years and ten, though for six years an invalid, and at times a great sufferer. Yet, whether in health or sickness, she was ever the same kind and benevolent woman --and none knew her but to Jove her. Without regard to age, sect or condition of her friends and acquaintances, her good wishes attended all. Her heart was full of sympathy for the distressed, who-ever they were. The wayfarer and stranger, as well as the chosen friend, shared the hospitality of the 'Cottage "Ever patient, submissive and cheerful, was wont so to welcome the visitor to her sick couch that you could not renize the chamber of affliction --you could not believe that the friend be you was racked with pain. And when the pulse of life had ceased to beat, the cold face had yet a smile upon it --an expression that told not of earth. Thc estimable woman has gone -- and what a noble example she has left behind her

In Philadephia on Monday the 20th inst Mrs Catherine wife of David Miller formerly of this city aged 45 years. In the death of this estimable lady we are again forcibly reminded that "Deathloves a shining mark" In all the relations of life whether as a mother, wife or daughter, she was a most exemplary lady Few persons indeed have ever left this stage of action who performed in so eminent a degree all the duties devolving upon them. Mrs MILLER was a true, devout and sincere Christian! Mild and unostentatious in her deportment --ever evincing an ardent desire for the temporal and eternal welfare of her fellow creatures. The writer of this hasty notice knew her well, and is confident in the belief that she lived and died without an enemy, which in itself betokens a character full of every virtue and goodness of heart. But she has gone --gone to the bosom of her God, whom on earth she served so well and faithfully, to reap that rich reward which is the inheritance of all those who love and fear him. May we like her "...sustained and soothed, By an unfaltering trust, approach our graves like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."

DIED

on the 22nd inst, after a lingering illness of nearly 4 months, Mr Jacob FORNEY, a much respected citizen of Lancaster, in the 54th year of his age. In the death of Mr Forney his family has sustained an irreparable loss, and society a useful member. Though moving in the sphere of a humble citizen his influnce through his active sympathy and generosity of heart, was widely felt in his immediate neighborhood, and whenever a kind word and the excerise of charitable feelings were needed, Though his means were limited no man more willing to contribute the "Widows' mite" or answered the appeals of suffering and want more readily than her. As a husband and a father his loss is indeed irreparable stimulating as he did those entrusted to his guardianship to lives of Virtue Order, and Usefulness. Though the part he sustained among us was humble and unobtrusive his life never the less furnishes examples of practical benevolance and upright deportment, worthy of imitaion by all. As he lived ever yeilding submissively to the dispensations of the Almighty - he died firmly relying upon promises of his Redeemer passing away calmly and serenely to "that bourne from whence no traveller returns"

The subject of this notice, when yet a boy, had the cares of a sickly father and a family of small brothers and sisters laid upon him for support and though the burden was heavy, he never shrank from it. He strictly observed the 6th Commandment -"Honor thy father and thy mother," &c. After the decease of his father he married, and commenced the mercantile business, and by honest industry he gained for himself a good credit, preserved an untarnished nature, and accumulated considerable of the world's goods. The hospitable and benevolent disposition which he possessed when a boy did not leave him in afterlife; his house was ever open to the poor and needy. and none ever went away wanting. In the fall of 1839 he was elected to the State Legislature. and while there discharged his duties to the satisfaction of his constituents. His disease was pulmonary consumption, which he bore with christian resignation, and when he found his end was approaching, he gave up all matters of a temporal nature, and sought the Lord with a penitent heart and in faith claimed the promises of Christ,viz: "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." His children have been bereaved of a kind parent, the poor of a friend, and the community of a respectable citizen. His remains were conveyed to Washington Borough on Sunday week, followed by friends and neighbors, where they were met by a large number of former friends and associates. A sermon suitable of the occasion was delivered by the Rev John KENDIG. from St John, 2nd chapter, 16th verse. after which the remains were borne, by four exmembers of the Legislature. viz: Andrew I KAUFFMAN, Benjamin KAUFFMAN, Lewis URBAN and J.G. SHUMAN, and deposited by the side of his companion. (who died a few years since) and other friends and children. A.I.K.

Oh! mourn not for Mary, she ceaseth to sorrow, Her spirit is gathered to Heavenly rest; Shena more will know a suffering morrow, For angels have lodged her in Jesus' breast. Oh! be glad and rejoice that Mary is taken, E're sin had defiled the image of God; In eternity's morn, how lovely she'll waken, An angel uprising from that little cloud. Ah! why should we mourn for our dearest offspring, Though at present our eyes seem fountains of tears; Yet they flow as the outlets of joyful thanksgiving,And not as expressions of sorrow and fear.

in Manheim Twp, on Friday the 24th inst, Mrs Fanny GRABILL, wife of David GRABILL, and daughter of Henry LANDIS, late of same, but now of Mt Joy Twp, aged 25 years, 10 months and 24 days. The unusual large concourse that followed her to the place of final repose, on Sunday, manifested the high esteem in which she was justly held.

in this city, on Monday evening, at the residence of her brother-in-law, Lewis SPRECHER, Miss Maria BEAR, in her (?th) year.

on the 17th inst, at the residence of his brother-in-law, E.P. IRWIN, of Sadsbury, Slater B, youngest son of John KIRK, of Fulton Twp, Lancaster Co, in the 23rd year of his age. He was suddenly taken on his return home to York Co, from the city of Philadelphia, with hemorrage, or bleeding at the lungs, which settled into consumption of the lungs, of which he died after being confined to his room and bed about four months. "Death loves a shining mark." All that professional skill could do, all that the loved ones around his bed could administer, was vain. Thus has passed away as the early dew in the morn, one who possessed in a high degree qualities calculated to inspire the deepest sorrow for his loss. In the near and dear relations that bound him to home, he enjoyed with those who shared his pleasures and his heart, sweet converse; he was gentle, affectionate and kind, as those whose privilege it was to number him among their acquaintance can best testify. The human face, an index of the heart, his the mirror that reflected innocence, and was fashioned by nature to please, with a heart not incapable to the tender passion. It was but natural to find one that beat in unison with his own. To her, the affianced of his heart --her whose tender and lone heart is now made desolate, and to the gentle sister and affectionate cousin who daily bent over his pillow and administered to his wants, this dispensation of Providence will be most severely felt. Yet there is consolation and a melancholy pleasure in contemplating his deathbed, which gave every assurance that our loss is his eternal gain. To the surviving members of the family he has left a lesson to profit by; to the young a deep and impressive lesson of instruction, to contemplate a young man, in the early morning of life, with glowing anticipations and flattering prospects, all that could make this life desirable, quietly and meekly resigning all for a Saviour's love. Through his protracted illness his sufferings must at times have been severe, yet he was ner heard to murmur or repine, but was calm and resigned up to the closing scene, and his lamp of life went out mild and serene, as his general conduct had been gentle and blameless. His funeral was largely attended and the sorrowing faces there depicted were an evidence that as he lived beloved, he died lamented by all with whom he was acquainted. Well may we all exclaim, "Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his." "Weep not for those whom the ve i 1 of the tomb In life's early morning, hath hid from our eyes, Ere sin threw a veil o'er the spirit's young bloom, Or earth had profaned what was born for the skies."

Departed this life on the 17th inst, at the residence of her husband at Granville, near the city of Lancaster, Mrs Alice McGRANN, consort of Richard McGRANN Sr, in the 52nd year of her age. Her death has cast a profound gloom over the whole family, (particularly her bereaved husband) which nothing but a kind Providence can remove. The meek and humble habits of Mrs McG, he humane, benevolent and charitable disposition, endeared her to all who became acquainted with her. She has left a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her departure. Her days well spent, her death we now record, Knowing the Lord her virtues will reward. This earthly stage in ways of faith she trod, We pray her soul may rest in peace with God.

in the city of New York on the 18th inst, of hamoptysis, John B MOUK, MD in the 24th year of his age. "This is the end of earth," no matter how protracted the age, or short the career, how prominent and darling, or how secluded the course in life, yet all must descend to the tomb, and all that can be done by the survivors here below, is to indulge in leaving upon

record, a tribute to the memory of those whom they have revered or loved, respected or admired. The subject of this brief notice, though young, had by his course in life secured the esteem and affection of all who knew him. He spent four years in Lancaster in the study of Medicine, and graduated with honor at the Jefferson Medical College, in 1846, and for a brief period practiced his profession in West Hempfield Township, in this county --he was a member of the Lancaster City and County Medical Society, and attended the late Medical Convention held in April --verifying by his sudden demise that "In the midst of life we are in death." He was a devoted student, possessing great quickness of apprehension, and nice discrimination in judgment, as a friend and companion, he was marked for his unobtrusiveness and courtesy,in principle he possessed a fine sense of moral rectitude, and avowed orthodox Christianity as the foundation of his future hopes, which are now no doubt realized in the full fruition of eternal happiness.

Counterfeiter's dies found

A few days ago a son of Mr Hugh Burk found on a hill back of Peach Bottom, two old dies which had evidently been made for counterfeiting. Both were Spanish dies one half dollarand he other dollar date 1743. The dies had evidently been oout in the hill a good many years and were perhaps put there by persons who feared being caught with themSome fifty years ago a half dozen or more persons liviing in Peach Bottom and Lower Chanceford townships were dealing in the "queer" notes as well as coin and were suspected of making some of the money themselves. None of these persons, so far as we are aware are now living. The dies referred to it as presumed belonged to them.

Obituary - MRS MARY ANN HARRAR - A correspondent in Coleraine writes This community learned with regret of the death of Mrs Mary Harrarrelict of James D Harrar She died on the morning of February 24 and the cause of death was primarily la grippe, followed by dropsy and general deblity. She survived her husband between two and three years having reached the age of 72 years 4 months, 15 days They lived a married life more than fifty years and a family of seven children, six daughters and one son, gathered about the parental hearth. Mrs Harrar was a daughter of William Ritchie, late of Drumore Lancaster county, who died May 4 1841 leaving a "first family" of six brothers and one sister Mrs Harrar was this sister. All of this family are now dead, except one brother of Mrs Harrar who follwed her remains to their last resting place. Mrs Harrar united in company with her husband with Union Presbyterian Church in 1852 on proffesion of faith, and was one of the few remaing members who had the privilege of voting for the call to the Rev C W Stewart D D. Through all her life she lived truley and simply to the first loving prffesion truley.

MRS FRANCINA BLAIR RISK - Widow of Samuel M. Risk died recently at her residence near Buck in the eighty fourth year of her age, being born Sep 13, 1811 The cause of her death was heart disease incident to old age She was the eldest daughter of the late Samuel Risk Moore and granddaughter of Rev Samuel Moore of Log College fame and a leading light in the Presbyterian Church of the early days. Mrs Risk is almost the last of an old family who for 150 years have lived and died on the old Buck homestead. She and her father were born and died in the same home first built by her grandfather. James Moore who married Francina Blair This long continuiance of the same name on one place is remarkable in our local history. Mrs Risk in childhood connected herself with Chestnut Level Presbyterian Church and during her long life was intimately associated with the social and and domestic affairs of the neighborhood. All the kindness, moral and religious beauties of a noble character were hers, and so life ends her simply as the beggining of a more beautiful and enduring one beyond. In the fullness in the years she felt and has been gatheree as a rich ripe sheaf into the garner of the Lord. For six months she had been in feeble health but pain did not rack her body or suffering break the patient heart. The New Testament was ever her daily comfort and so in calmness and faith she heard the promise "I am the resurrection and the life who beleiveth in me shall not perish but have eternal life" But two sisters now remain of the noted Moore family - Mary R Long, widow of John Long and Mrs Lydia Cameron widow of Capt James Cameron, of Lower Chanceford, York County Two sons survive Robert Blair Risk of "The Examiner" and Samuel James Risk of Buck East Drumore township - Examiner

It was between daylight and sunrise one morning in the days of slavery when three men alighted at the farm of Moses Whitman who then resided on the line between Lancaster and Chester counties, nearly a score of miles from West Chester and nearly as far from the City of Lancaster, colse to Penningtonville, now Atglen, Chester County They were two constibles from the City of Lancaster and the young master of Lizzie Jackson, a colored woman hired out to service in farmer Whitson's where she engaged as a servant. "Hush listen said the young master as he placed his ear at the old oaken door. " " They are not up yet, only she - Lizzie". Instantly the door was opened and the three entered. The frightened girl at once recognized in one of the personages her former master, and knowing full well his errand uttered a shreik and rand for the door. "Lock the door! " cried the leader. In a twinkling the door was locked and the three men were about manacling the fugitive slave when they heard some one running down the stairs. "Here men! Release her!" demanded Farmer Whitson. "By what authority do you enter my house and lay hands upon any member of my household?" he ask. The officers produced their warrant for the arrest of Lizzie as a fugitive slave. No use You must produce a warrant from West Chester authories. You and I and Lizzie are in Chester County. A long parley ensued and much interposition was offered by Mr Whitson against such proceedings. In the meantime Master Whitson, the farmers son scared half to death ran down to B. P Whipper's, the colored tenant on the place, to whom he stated that the kidnappers had gotten ahold of Lizzie. That was enough. Aroused by the hatered for slavery which Which Whipper entertained he at once made up his mind to do his best in making an effort to get the girl out of their clutches. "Go boy" he said "and tell Mr Whitson I'll be there in a moment." and he was as good as his word The three men and the farmer were in the midst of a heated disscusion. when Whipper entered the room. "May I have old black Bess, the mare?" asked Whipper to the farmer in a whisper. "Yes and for Gods sake hurry! Do what you can!" Away the excited fellow ran Reaching the barn he saddled the mare and was no time reaching Joseph Moore's, an Abolitionist farmer, who resided a quarter mile distance. He found four or five colored men just sitting down to breakfast."Boys" he cried without dismounting "Get up and leave your meal"! Theres work to be done this day". Then he told them What was going oon at Farmer Whitson's and at once the girls perilous situation flashed across their minds and the speakers urgent urgent words found a sympathetic chord in their hearts. " They'll get the girl" said Whipper" and they'll stop at the Gap Hill for breakfast for they remained there all night. Meet me up the road and hide yourself. I'll be in the woods and when I wave the signal make a dash for the barouche; she'll be in that, for they're got one with them. "All right Whipper" Go ahead We'll be there!" Away the fellow dashed sinking the spurs into the side of old Bess, who galloped of as though she too, were anxious for the fray. Whipper watched from a secluded spot the girl taken and forced into the barouche. He saw the men drive off with triumphant air, and, setting his teeth together firmly, audibly remarked: " I'll rescue Lizzie or there'll bea dead Whipper in this Commonwealth". He galloped off after the team and when he reached the point where he was to be joined by his confederates in ambush he waved a small limb, which he carried in his hand. The men were true to their word. Without further signs they leaped out from behind the bushes and made a dash for the wagon. "Back - back" cried one of the officers. There was no backing done there.. One of the resueing party grasped the horses by the head while the others clambered, clubs in hand, into the wagon. There was a short tussle, during which one of the officers leveling his old horse pistol at the leader of the party, shot him in the cheek. The others raised his weapon and recieved a blow upon the arm from a club in the hands of one of the rescuers for his trouble. The weapon dropped and was the first captive of the enemy. The amn shot was Whipper's brother in law Henry Roberts. When he saw blood trickle down his face he became infuriated and seeing the officers lashing the horses in the hope of riding over their adversaries he raised his club and struck one of the horses a blow across the face. This served to blind the horse and the animals turned off the pike to the summer road two feet below, where they ran into a fence and were stopped. During all this time Lizzie stood trembling in the wagon afraid to move. "Get down out of that" cried Whipped sternly, after getting back to the exciting scene, for his mare frightened at the report of a pistol and ran off a short distance. The girl obeyed his command. "Help her up boys" again cried Whipper. Following his advise a pair of black but honest arms lifted her and placed her on the mare's back. "Good bye boys" shoouted Whipper. " I guess all's right" Glad enough to escape without any further molestation the young master, who was a brother- in- law to the real owner of the girl, and the two officers rode off to Lancaster, where the owner of the girl awaited them. Prodly did Whipper ride off with his prize, never stopping until he reached Joseph Moore's, where the girl was kept for one or two days and then handed over to an Abolitionist, who at that time was in the secrets of the Underground Railroad system. Time passed. In 1752 (?should this be 1852)Whipper went to Canada, where he settled down and studied for the ministry. Soon he was a full fledged disiple of the Gospel. He had been on the mission for many years and had almost forgotten the circumstances of the rescue of Lizzie Jackson, when one day he was solicited to go to the bedside of a colored woman at Queen Bush, Canada, in his district. The distance was long, but he hurried as fast as he could, not reaching his destination, however, before death had claimed the invalid. When he arrived and looked down into the care worn face he started back, burst into tears and sobbed like a child. The dead woman was none other than Lizzie Jackson, who had been living in Canada for years, but had not the pleasure of meetin her old friend and benefactor before the reaper garnered her into the fold. Rev B P Whipper was eighty two years of age on the forth of present month. He was born at Drumore Lancaster County in 1801. Two months ago, hearing that his daughter Elizabeth Cain, was living in West Chester, Pennsylvania, he resolved to Journey here, where he found her alive and well and together they are now living happily in Fasnacht's Row, in the East ward of this borough. He is an itelligent old gentleman and remembers the above recited events as though they were but the occurence of yesterday - West Chester Local News May 1886.

Sad Ending of An Escapade - Bertha SINGLETON left her home at Peach Bottom estensibly to atten York Fair, promising to return Friday morning. She crossed the river and took th 4 p m train on the Columbia and Port deposit R R where it seems she met a gentleman friend by prearrangement. The family heard nothing of her until a day or two after the wreck on the Pa R R at Manor station 25 miles east of Pittsburg Wed evening. Among the persons injured in the wreck were a man about 40 years old and a yound woman who refused to give their names. This fact drew attention to them and lead to special inquiry. The wounded were taken to West Penn hospital Pittsburg where the man after telling some conflicting stories, finally gave his name as C H SMITH of Elkton Md. and the name of the lady as Miss Bertha Singleton, of Peach Bottom He said the reason he did not wish to tell before was he desired to let their families know they were alive before they learned that they were hurt. Smith says he met the girl in York and ask her to accomnany him to Pittsburg where he had business also that he told his wife he was going to take the girl with him It is not believed here however that they were in York. Smith had recieved a scalp wound but was not severely hurt. Miss Singleton suffered very severely She had her jaw bone badly broken and artery on the temple lacerated and perhaps the bone slightly cracked and the tendons of one wrist torn loose. The fright together with the physical and mental sufferings has caused her hair to turn gray and she will probably be a cripple for life. She remains at the hospital Smith has gone home. Miss Singleton is a daughter of the late Henry Singleton, is about 19 years old, tall fair complection good looking and has borne a good reputation She has been living in Hightstown N J for a quite while. and returned to her home some two months ago. Smith is said to be clerk to the commisioners of Cecil Co Md and has a wife and children living. Under the name of BYRON he had called a few times to see Miss Singleton at Peach Bottom and after the accident wrote to the family under the same name, from which it would appear he was trying to lead a dual life. He says there was no improperer relations between them that he was making a trip to Pittsburg and asked his friend to accompany him. Miss Singleton tells quite a similar story and that she wished to see a large city and accepted the offer of her friend who bought her ticket.

He feels that he can do a better work among those who are deepest in sin, than if he were to prepare for preaching the gospel. We trust that he may be very successful in his new undertaking. May he not grow weary in well doing.

Mrs. SARAH JANE, wife of DAVID D. SHENBERGER, of Fawn Twp, who has suffered intensely from internal cancer for several months, quietly breathed her last on Saturday, Dec. 19th at 2:40pm. Funeral services were conducted on Tuesday morning at 10:30am by her pastor, Rev. J.T. LASSELL, of Fawn Grove; a short service at the house; the regular service at Mt. Olivet Church. The church was well filled: a host of relatives followed the remains to the grave. Her age was 33(or 55)yrs-7mo-19dy (the year was hard to read). She was the daughter of JOHN MILLER, of Harford Co, MD and was married about 31yrs ago. Her husband, 5 daughters, and 2 sons, all of whom stood at her bedside in her last minutes, except Mrs. JOHN WILSON of Lapidum, MD who had returned to her home on Thursday previous, survives her. She was consistent member of Mt. Olivet church for many years and always ready to perform her duty as far as she knew, and always tried to have her children in their places at Sunday School. Not being able to read or write, of coarse, she did not enjoy the great priviledge that her neighbors enjoyed. She was a good neighbor of which I can testify, living within calling distance for nearly 16 years.

Mr. HARRY KEYSER, of Lower Chanceford, who has been quite ill for some time, died on Christmas day. Funeral today. Services at the house, conducted by his pastor, Rev. JAS DRUMMOND, assisted by Prof. JOHN RANDALL, of Lincoln University. His wife, a son, and 2 daughters survive him. He served as trustee in Chanceford church for many years, and will be much missed in the church as well as in the community.

On Thursday, Dec 24th, JOSEPH F. TAYLOR, of Bridgeton, Pa and Miss SADIE A. FAMOUS, of Harford Co, MD were made one by Rev. WYSONG, of Fern Cliff, MD at the residence of the bride.

Tribute of Respect

The directors of The First National Bank of Delta consider it appropriate that some expression should be given to their sense of loss occasioned by the death of their fellow member HARRY KEYSER, Esq. Ever since the organization of this bank, over 7 years ago, he has been a welcome member of our board, genial in disposition, kind of heart, and outspoken in his ideas on all subjects. He left a break in our ranks that will be hard to fill. His intelligence and clerical ability being of a high order, his service as a committee member will be particularly missed. His was a nature that despised all that was fictitious and deceitful in life and was rarely deceived by outward appearance. We direct that this token of our esteem be published in The Delta Herald & Times and a copy be sent to the bereaved family to convey to them in a formal way our tender sympathy, knowing full well however that they could ask for no higher eulogy than the universal expressions of admiration of his character from those who knew him best....V.G. STUBBS, president, WM G. McCOY, sec'y.

Samuel Witmer Buried - The Funeral of Samuel Witmer, one of Quarryvilles best citizens, and a prominent man throughout all lower Lancaster County, took place on Tuesday at 1:30 p. m., the assemblege being one of the largest seen in this section for a long time. It will be remembered that on July 16th he was thrown fromhis wagon at the railroad crossing near his home, notice of which appeared in THE SUN at the time, but aside from a general jarring and a few slight bruises nothing was thought of it, and he was assisted in righting the wagon and went about as usual. Shortly after symptoms of internal injuries developed and he gradually grew worse until death relieved his suffering last Thursday night.

Mr Witmer was the eldest son of David and Elizabeth Witmer and was born in 1887 on the farm now owned by Conrad Hess and occupied by George Gual. He was of a preserving nature and of industrious habits and early in life began clerking for the late George W. Hensel and later occupied the same position in his fathers store, on the site of which is now J. P. M. Raub's hotel. He was married to Miss Margaret Lyle also a resident of the village and left the store for the farm and also for a time engaged in lime burning. They afterward moved to .........this is the section missing....

……carloads of hay & straw , also handleing farm machineryand fertilizers, never being a happy and contented as when keeping everything on the move. He was a member of Wesley M E Church, and the community has suffered a lossthat will be hard to fill.

Another old voter

Having seen an article about several old voters in the New Era, I wish to say that my first vote was cast in 1840- for Harrison and Tyler and that I have nte missed a presidential election since.I have voted the Whig American and Republican ticket ever since. When Gen Fremont was a canidate I lived in Maryland, and as the only tickets there were American & Democrat, I voted for Filmore the nominee of the American party. Had I lived in Pennsylvania I certainly would have voted for Fremont. However Fillmore got the electorial vote for the state. I well remember how the Whigs got their name Their motto was "We Hope In God" and by using the first letter of each word, it gave W-H-I-G- and they were so known as long as they were in existance.

An Interesting Personage

A racy corresponondent of the Philadelphia North American writes interestingly of one of the sons of lower Lancaster county as follows: " Among the many interesting men of southern Lancaster county and this generation is the vetern John Stubbs, of Fulton township. Having spent many years on the water in the service of Uncle Sam during a critical period in the Countries history, having tilled the soil industriously, been a keen observer of nature with natrual intelligence as well as a good judge of human nature, and the reader of many books, he is splendidly qualified, now that he is living in retirement to preside o'er the congress that meets regularly, with an occasional extra session, behind the comfortable stove in Edgar Fulton's general store at Cherry Hill. John is living on borrowed time, and bids fair to stick to the job for he enjoys good health He has seen many f the wonders of the world, and cleverly relates his experiences, but seems to think his audiences are unappreciative and, while his story of this reseption given Alexander, the old czar of Russia, by the admiral of the fleet he was with and how in firing a salute, a gunman stuffed a pair of pants in the cannon's mouth, to have them land on a Russian seamans legs, would make a good newspaper story; in Cherry Hill the critical audience outdoes Thomas in doubting. He has described the skies of Naples, the roles of Constantinople, the land-locked harbor of Sydney, the strength of Gibraltar, the shipping of Amsterdam, the size of London Compared the Amazon to the Susquehanna, Illustrated the ease with which our big guns could shell the city of Mexico from Vera Cruz, and Jim McCullough has slept and snored as the world passed by. However John's stories inspired Milt Haines to leave Cherry Hill to see something of the world as discribed by John and when last heard from he was in Oregon. Fulton concludes there are rivers more navigable than the Susquehanna and greater ports than Peach Bottom, while Dave Gallagher, the village blacksmith ; Dr Stubbs, the local Physian; Anson Ambler, the local sedate farmer; the Bickwells, the Glackins and hosts of other delight to hear the aged seaman and acknowledge him to be Cherry Hill's most interesting citizens."

HOW DIFFERENT IN ARIZONA.

While this section of the country has been having an exceptionally mild winter, Mrs. Frank Jolly, formerly of Quarryville, writing from Elgin, Santa Cruz County, Ariz., says they "have had a very cold winter. It started in before Thanksgiving and almost every week since it rains or snows. Old timers say they have not seen anything like it in forty-one years. But everybody is looking forward to good crops, as far as the moisture in the ground is concerned. If our summer rains begin about the 12th to 15th of July we will be all right but if they come from the 10th to 15th of June then it means a poor season."

Little Britain girl is Missionary after Many Delays & Disappointments

By Mrs. Warren B. Kirk

Only because of a Little Britain Township girl's undaunted faith to do the work of her heart's desire was she granted her wish Wednesday morning after many disappointments. Miss Joann Jackson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Jackson of near Tayloria, boarded a plane from the Philadelphia Airport Wednesday morning, March 14, at 10:00 a.m. bound for Trinidad, where she expects to spend the next four years as a Missionary.

Two years have passed since Miss Jackson first started plans to enter this field of work. It was while she was an employee of the Lancaster Credit Bureau she began her studies at the Lancaster School of the Bible, that she realized her great desire for the Mission Field. After completing her studies at the Bible School she resigned her Position at the Credit Bureau and went to Detroit, Michigan where she served a 6 month Missionary Internship. It was late last Spring when Miss Jackson was making her final preparations to enter her field of work at Guadalupe when per disappointments began.

Because of climatic conditions there this time of year she was advised to delay her trip until a later time. It was during this time her plans were again changed, in that she was requested to be sent to Trinidad instead of Guadalupe, To replace a missionary worker there who had to return to her home due to ill health. Miss Jackson applied for her Visa in July 1961, but because of Difficulties and delays with it coming through she did not receive it until January 1962. Plane reservations were now made for her to take off Wednesday, March 7th. March 4th Miss Jackson gave a farewell message at the Sunday evening service at Colerain Baptist Church in readiness for her departure the coming Wednesday but again her trip had to be delayed. Due to the heavy snow storm in this area planes were not scheduling any trips out of the Philadelphia Airport, thus, her trip made to be rescheduled for Wednesday, March 14, when her plans were at last accomplished.

If Sponsoring her in this work are the Young People's Class of the Colerain Baptist Church, the Little Britain Presbyterian Church and the Grace Baptist Church of Russellville, of which she is a member. Accompanying her to the Airport Wednesday to bid her farewell were her brother and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Jackson and son Dennis of Nottingham; herbrother-in-law and sister. Mr. And Frank McCarter, last three families mentioned all of the Grace Baptist Church, Russellville. A cablegram has been received from Miss Jackson by her brother Joseph of Nottingham, stating she arrived safely in Trinidad 9:15 p.m. Wednesday evening.
