New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

In January 2013 we introduced the new site layout but because there were many pages left to do there was a big red Under Construction on the front page. A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete. We have a great looking site full of material to help you in your research and possibly entertain you.

New River Notes

January 6, 2013

New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.

new river valley mapNew River Notes was originally launched in 1998 by Jeffrey C. Weaver providing New River Valley researchers with a new wealth of information and that tradition is continued today by the Grayson County, Virginia Heritage Foundation, Inc.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look.

  • Allegany County

    ALLEGANY COUNTY is in the western division of the State, and is bounded on the east by Washington County, south by the north branch of the Potomac River to the mouth of Savage River, then in a north easterly direction to summit of Savage Mountain, (which is the dividing line between it and Garrett County,) and on to the Pennsylvania line. This county is crossed by the ranges of the Mlegany Mountains, from which it takes its name. The geology is composed principally of sandstone and limestone, with quartz and slate. The most valuable minerals are the vast coal fields and iron ore beds. The soil is of varying character, of sand and clay; in some parts quite fertile, though mostly uncultivated and covered with natural forests. The waters of the county are the north branch of the Potomac and Savage River, and George's, Wills', Town, Fifteen Mile and Evitt's Creeks, with many tributaries heading in the mountains, and all flowing into the Potomac. The surface of Allegany is broken and irregular, the greater part being in the mountains, and covered with the original forests of fine timbers; whilst between the mountain ridges are many broad and level valleys, which have in most cases rich, deep soil, and are covered with excellent grasses, forming naturally, very fine grazing lands, and yielding large crops of good hay. The lands also make good farms, producing all kinds of grain and fine fruit Allegany possesses in its immense coal fields the most valuable mineral deposits in the State.

    The celebrated Cumberland coal field lies west of the city, in a basin formed by the Great Savage Mountain on the north-west and the Dan's Mountain on the south-east, and running north-east and south-west from Pennsylvama State Line, through Allegany County, into Mineral County, West Virginia. The basin is about five miles wide between the two ranges and about twenty miles long. The floor of the basin slopes from either end upwards to Frostburg, where it attains its greatest altitude, from 2,000 to 2,100 feet above mean tide.

    The southern slope of the basin is drained by George's Creek, flowing south-west from Frostburg and emptying into the Potomac River. The northern slope, by Jenning's Run, flowing north-west into Wills' Creek. The aggregate depth of the coal formation here is 1,100 feet, its base being the Millstone Grit. Capping the summits of Savage and Dan's Mountains, it extends down their sides into the valley, where it dips below the surface. The principal coal veins are, first, the "Big Vein," fourteen feet of coal, lying 1,860 feet above tide. This is the vein from which most of the coal is now mined. It underlies the surface of the valley at Frostburg and Borden Shaft, but southward, down the George's Creek, water has cut away that portion of the measure lying in the lowest part of the valley and with it this vein, (which here must have been very near the surface), leaving the higher parts only of the vein standing in the hills thus formed on either side of the water course. Second, the "Four Foot Vein," which lies about 800 feet below the "Fourteen Foot Vein." This vein is below water in the higher part of the basin; but appears about sixty feet above at Barton, and lies above the level from that point southward, down the George's Creek. This vein has been opened by the Piedmont Coal and Iron Company, and proves to be equal In quality to the BIg Vein, and in the southern portion of the basin lies in such a way as to be easily mined. Lastly, the Six Foot Vein," which lies 160 feet below the "Four Foot Vein," and is above water level in the lower part of the valley only. This vein is now successfully mined at the New Reading opening, at Westernport. These two lower veins, though smaller in size than the "Big Vein," have a much greater acreage, as but ilitle of either vein has been cut away by erosion. At present the abussent supply contained in the large vein is so easy of access and can be so cheaply mined, that these smaller veins have not received the share of attention which they eventually will. Several new openings other than those mentioned are now being made in these smaller veins, with very encouraging prospects.

    The total acreage of coal land in this field is 44,132. Of this, 17,300 acres contain the large "Fourteen Foot Vein," and of course all contain the two smaller veins. Besides these, which are the working veins, there are numerous other small veins, throughout the entire depth ol the coal measure; these veins are from six inches to three feet In thickness; they have never received any attention from mining companies or experts, and we are not able to say what may be their actual value in workable coal. The Cumberland coal field is one of extraordinary wealth. Mining began in 1842, and since then over 81,000,000 tons in all, and 2,410,891 tons in a single year, have been sent into the market by twenty companies, the portion of the field now most worked being that between Frostburg and Piedmont, on George's Creek. This immense transportation has been chiefly done over the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. in the two principal veins there are estimated to be now 318,000,000 tons, besides several underlying veins not yet developed. The coal occurs in such a manner as to make the expense of working a minimum, being never far from the surface and In veins of great thickness, the one of fourteen feet having no parallel elsewhere.

    The coal produced is semi-bituminous, burns very easily and to a very light ash, having no slack or clinker; it is excellent for blacksmithing, and unexcelled for manufacturing purposes generally, being the very best fuel for generating steam. It is largely furnished for the supplies of New England, the State of New York, for steamship purposes, and to all the Atlantic cities, and is largely exported to the West Indies, the eastern and western coasts of South America, Cailfornia, etc. It is also sent by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and its connections, for manufacturing purposes to Ohio, Indiana, Illnois, and many other Western States. This county has also large supplies of iron ores which are smelted in several large furnaces; many undeveloped beds being a very fine description of ore; also, excellent building materials of limestone and sandstone, and large quantities of hydraulic cement; sandstone suitable for manufacturing glass can be found in large quantities on the suburbs of Cumberland. Fine clay, of a very superior quality, is found and manufactured in immense quantities at Mt. Savage. This county has great and most innumerable water powers, comparatively little used, having only some few grist and saw nillis for local uses only. The climate is pure and healthy. The principal productions are corn, oats, buckwheat, potatoes, butter, hay, wool, liquors, leather, coal and lumber.

    The, county seat, is a flourishing town, the second largest and most important town in the State. It is situated at the confluence of Wills' Creek with 'he North Branch of the Potomac River, and on its left bank. The location in a basin or amphitheatre formed by the Wills' and Knobly ranges of the great Allegany Mountains, completely surrounding it with mountain ranges and peaks, and It is called the "Queen City." Wills' Creek here bursts through Wills' and Dan's Mountains to join the Potomac, and up the magnificent gap so formed runs the old National Road with its single arched bridge. Here is the superb Queen City Hotel, owned and operated by the Balto. & Ohio Co., from the gallery of which can be seen a pretty yellow stone gothic church, standing on a hill in the heart of the town. Here stood Fort Cumberlnnd, and here wss the rendezvous for Braddock's expedition.

    The City is on the outer edge of the great coal basin and is connected with it by the Cumberland & Penna R. R., which runs from Cumberland to Piedmont, through the coal basin, and by the Eachart mines branch, which runs from Cumberland to Echart and other mines on the eastern edge of the coal fields. It is the principal shipping point for the celebrated Cumberland coal'. It is near the centre of the main stem of that great National highway the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, 204 miles from river navigation at Parkersburg and. Wheeling, in West Virginia, and, 178 miles from tidewater at Baltimore. The Pittsburgh and Connellaville Branch joins the main stem here and connects it with Pittsburgh, 149 miles, and the oil regions of Pennsylvania. The Bedford and Huntingdon branch of the Pennsylvania Railway connects it. with all important points in central and eastern Pennsylvania,. The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal has its western terminus here, and connects it with, tidewater at Georgetown,.in the District, of Columbia, and Alexandria, Virginia.

    Cumberland is an incorporated town, and is governed by a Mayor and Board of Councilmen, and has a regularly organised police force. The city is lighted with gse, and is furnished with an abundance of Potomac River water by the "Holly System of Fire Protection and Water Supply." It is well supplied with churches and good schools several church buildins are very handsome, and by their picturesque situation and architectural beauty add greatly tothe appearance of the "Mountain City." The inhabitants of Cnmberland are industrious and enterprising; they are noted for their hospitality and good morals.

    Is a growing town, the second largest aud most important in Allegany County. It is situated near the headwaters of George's Creek, on a plateau letween the Great Savage and Dan's Mountains of the Allegany Range, seventeen hundred feet above tide. The location and climatic conditions are eminently healthy, and the town is already favorably known as a summer resort, notwithstanding the accommodations have hitherto been confined to private entertainment. Tbe great want is a commodious hotel. The almost universal conclusion is, this is a fine opening for a profitable investment.

    The town is near the centre of the great George's Creek semi-bituminous coal region, and midway between Cumberiand, Md., and Piedmont, West Va, on the line of the Cumberland & Pennsylvania Railroad, and enjoys quick conneetions with the great trunk line railways, east and west. Frostburg is an incorporated town, governed by a Mayor and a Board of six Councilmen, and hss a resularly organized police force. The town is lighted with gas, and is provided with water from the numerous springs on the eastern slope of the Great Savage Mountain, by means of pipes and reservoirs. It contains fourteen churches the Methodist and Catholic being notable for costliness and fine architectural appearance. Several schools afford excellent educational facilities; two weekly papers provide local news for the people, and two fine halls for the public amusement. The Opera House owned by Thos. H. Paul, is well adapted for all kinds of amusements. Among the stores there are two as stylish establishments as can be found anywhere.

    Excepting Virginia City, Nevada, Frostburg probably lies higher above tide than any town of equal size in the United States. This altitude affords a view in all directions, rarely excelled for beauty and sublimity anywhere. Eastward, Dan's Mountain running northward, breaks off into a defile traversed by the National Pike and Eckbart Branch of the Cumberland & Pennsylvania Railroad. Here nestles the picturesque town of Eckhart, 1 Ç miles from Frostburg, with 1,000 inhabitants. Southward, the great George's Creek Valley, flanked on the left by Dan's Mountain, and on the right by the Big Savage, stretches seventeen miles away to the Potomac. Traversed by the Cumberland & Pennsylvania Railroad and George's Creek, both of which are fronted with dwellings, make nearly a continuous town the entire way. Aside from its material significance, the tourist cannot fail to be impresseed with the scene; every element of nature and handiwork of man being present to lend grandeur and diversity to the prospect. On the west, the rugged precipitous sides of the Great Savage stand like a bulwark, as it is, against the storms of winter. Continuing northward, the mountain maintains its altitude, breaking off to the right in hills and gentle declivities, until the bed of Jennings' Run is reached. Here another valley opens to view, quite as rich in landscape perspective as the George's Creek. To the right a ridge rises diversified with fertile farms and umbrageous groves all the way over until we reach Eckhart, our starting point.

    Standing on the steps of the JOURNAL office, the eye easily sweeps from the hills of Pennsylvania, across Maryland, over into the mountains of West Virginia. A great part of the town is here spread out at our feet. Not far off the site of Braddock's route to Fort DuQuesne, surveyed by Washington, is visible. A monument of that disastrous expedition still stands just outside the corporate limits, noting, it is said, the first day's march from Fort Cumland-eleven miles. Six miles by air-line to the south-east, Dan's Rock towers high and rugged, overlooking the most extended and varied landscape in all this section. From this point Frostburg and Cumberland are plainly seen; the mountains in all directions, the Potomac and its magnificent bottom-lands, farm houses and railroad, comprise a "bird's eye view" which no one can ever wholly forget. The tourist to this section who has not visited Dan's Rock has no conception of the wonderful features with which this region abounds. In short, no town of the size and prominence of Frostburg enjoys in its surroundings a more unique topography; and no point of this region array of imposing projections furnishes a more interesting outlook than Dan's Rock.

    If to these we add the novelty of our industrial avocations, the salubrity of our atmosphere and purity of our water, we have a series of conditions, which, properly estimated, must sooner or later give the town a commanding prominence as a summer resort. The inhabitants of Frostburg and vicinity are mainly miners of foreign birth or extraction-made up of English, Welsh, Scotch, Irish, German, etc; they comprise an industrious, thrifty and intelligent population; of good morals and studious habits, they will compare favorably with any people anywhere. To them the town owes its extraordinary growth since the war, and the coal region its immense development. We are indebted to I. B. Oder, Editor "Journal," for this sketch and other favors. C. H. Walker, Postmaster. Population 5,000.

    Is on the Cumberland & Penna Railroad, nine miles N.W. of Cumberland; the village is situated on surrounding hills, 100 to 300 ft. above the railroad tracks, which are in a valley, making the altitude over 1500 ft above sea level. The climate is especially fine and healthy. Most all the officers of the Union Mining Co. and of the C. & P.R. R. live here. The population of Mt Savage is fully up to business requirements. The land is good for potatoes, grain, &c. All the available farming land is cleared. The timbered land is well cut out and thinned; white oak, black oak, red oak, chestnut, sugar maple, hickory, locust, with some white pine yet standing. Land sells exclusive of mineral rights from $200 to $400 per acre and produces an average crop, which is generally good. Mt. Savage first became worthy of note by the erection of a rolling mill in 1839 and two blast furnaces in 1840. The first operations were carried on by a company of Engilsh capitalists, but subsequently the property changed hands and was operated by the Mt Savage Iron Company," an essentially American concern. In the Mt Savage Mill were rolled the first rails made on the Western Continent; in honor of which a medal was awarded by the "Franklin Institute." For a number years these iron works, alternately prosperous and struggling against adverse circumstances, gave employment to a large number of operatives; population of Mt. Savage being then something over 4,000 souls. In the mill was closed. At the blast furnace several subsequent attempts were made to compete with more modern furnaces; but at present they too are lying in idleness. Of the rolling mill scarcely a trace is now visible, as as been dismantled to make room tor other works.

On the site of the old rolling mill are being erected new and enlarged works;or the manufacture of fire brick and other clay ware, which are expected to be occupied by the beginning of 18';S. The old brick works will then be dismantled. There is one public and one private school. St. George's Episcopal Church, Rev. J. W. Nott; M. B., Rev. H. Clay Smith; St. Patrick's Roman Catholic, Rev.

  • Anne Arundel County

    ANNE ARUNDEL is the most centrally situated county of the State, and is bounded on the east by the Chesapeake Bay, south by Calvert County, west by the Patuxent Biver and Prince George's County, north-west by Howard County, and north by Baltimore County. At its northern extremity it lies immediately opposite to and is connected with Baltimore City by a draw-bridge about a mile long. Iron ore abounds in the northern part of the county.

    This county is of a rolling character, but has no very elevated points, and, like most of the other counties, has all descriptions of soil. Below Annapolis there is generally a stiffer soil, and mostly an excellent fertile country, and very productive in tobacco and grain. The lands along South and West Rivers are the chief grain producing sections, while those in the upper and central portions of the county are noted for their fine fruits and vegetables The country between Annapolis and Baltimore is almost entirely cultivated in truck gardens, and sends to the Baltimore markets a large proportion of their finest supplies, producing immense quantities of strawberries, peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, cantaloupes, watermelons, cabbages, &c. This section is highly adapted for this purpose, being mostly a light soil, easily tilled, and, being protected by the elevated lands north of Baltimore, is several days earlier in ripening crops than the soils around the north of the city The timbers are principally oaks, chestnut, and pines. There are some fisheries in the county though not very extensive, but oysters abound around all the shores south from Sandy Point, and also wild fowl in the season.

    The capital of the State, county seat of Anne Arundel, is a city and port of entry, situated on the south bank of the Severn River, 2 miles from its entrance into the Chesapeake Bay; 20 miles S. by E. from Baltimore and 87 miles E. by N. of Washington. The Annapolis & Elkridge H. B., 21 miles long, connects it with Baltimore and Washington by rail, and it is in daily eommunication by steamers with Baltimore and other points on the bay and its tributaries. Annapolis was founded about 1649. The settlement was at first called Providence, afterward Anne Arundeltown; and lastly, having received a city charter in 1705, Annapolis, (i.e. "the city of Anne,") in honor of Queen Anne, who bestowed several valuable presents on the town, giving an organ to one of their churches, &C The State House where meets the Legislature and the Court of Appeals, is a fine old building, and is located on a beautiful elevation in full view of the bay and near the centre of the city. The State Legislature meets biennially in January, and the Court of Appeals holds its sessions from October to July, with a short intermission in the spring. The U.S. Naval Academy; St. John's College, (a State institution), one of the oldest in the country, and St. Mary's Seminary for priests, (Roman Catholic), are situated here. The city contains large and well attended Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran and Roman Catholic Churches, also a bank, a market house, 4 newspapers and 4 printing offices, and four good hotels. The Maryland Hotel and the City Hotel are the head-quarters for the sons of Md. when they come biennially to legislate for the State, and lively old times they have in this ancient city during the time of the sitting of the State Legislature, which holds its sessions daily for three months. Annapolis is an incorporated town and is governed by a mayor and board of aldermen, and has a regular police force. The city is lighted with gas and is supplied with plenty of good water. It has a convenient and well protected harbor. Vessels of the largest size anchor with safety in Annapolis Roads, and during the winter of 1877, when access to Baltimore was prevented by the ice, numbers of vessels-many of them foreign barques, sought and found shelter in the harbor of Annapolis. Oyster packing, during eight months of the year, is the principal trade of the place, and the citic contains several large establishments for this trade. During the summer the Annapolis Canning Company is busily engaged in putting up fruit and vegetables, dile fly peaches, peas and tomatoes. The citizens of Annapolis are industrious and enterprising, and are noted for their morality and hospitality. The elty is healthy and presents many attractions for tourists, pleasure seekers and those wanting homes. Population 10,000. W. O. Bigelow, Postmaster.

    STRANGER's GUIDE TO INTERESTING PARTS.-The State House, built of Imported brick. In it are, the Senate Chamber as it was when General Washington resigned; the Executive Chamber, with portraits of all former governors; the State Library and the Court of Appeals. At the foot of the State House Hill are the Treasurer's Office, where the provisional legislators met before the erection of the State House; the Comptroller's Office, the Land, Office, containing the recerds of the Colonial Government, and the Office of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, where are found archives under the autograph of General Washingtori, when Vice-President of the Potomac Company. Gubernatorial Residence, a splendid modernly built edifice, finished February, 1870, is opposite. United States Naval Academy, founded October 10th 1845 under the Presidency of James K. Polk, is beautifully situated on some fifty acres of ground, fronting Severn River. As an institution for the acquisition of naval knowledge it has, without a doubt, no superior in the world. To visitors it is open from 7 a. m., to 10 p.m. Music on the lawn from 9 to 10 a. m., and from 5 to 7p.m. United States Naval Hospital, on "Strawberry Hill," is connected with the academy ground by a bridge, and accommodates over three hundred patients. United States Naval Cemetery, on said property, is also a place worthy of note. St. John's College, founded 1784, endowed by Maryland, adjoins the Naval Academy. It has three large public halls, extensive grounds, a front on Severn River for bathing and boating. A preparatory department Is attached, which qualifies students also for other high schools. The Faculty numbers eleven of the best talent in the country. Average attendance 200 pupils. Churches-there are St. Anne's Episcopal, Presbyterian, First and Second Methodist and the St. Mary's (Catholic.) The latter Is built on the estate of John Carroll of Carrollton, and with it is connected a college for the education of ecclesiastics.

  • Baltimore County

    BALTIMORE COUNTY is the most central of the northern tier of counties, and one of the largest in the State, being hounded on the north by Pennsylvania, east by Harford County, west by Carroll County, and southwest and south by the Patapsco Falls and River, separating it from Howard and Anne Arundel counties. This county, from its position surrounding the metropolis, is the most important in the State. The surface is uneven and varied, and the rivers and falls which traverse it afford immense water powers, and are the sites of the most extensive milling operations in the Union. The Little and Great Gunpowder Falls, Patapsco River and Gwynn's and Jones' Falls are improved with large carpet, cotton and woolen factories, furnaces, foundries, paper and louring mills, all doing a large and flourishing business. The fineet and strongest cotton duck and the best flour are here manufactured. In many parts fruits are extensively cultivated, and the vicinity of Baltimore is remarkable for the fine quality and profusion of its garden vegetables. Iron ores of the brown hematite order, magnetic oxide and carbonate species are found in many parts of the county, and smelted in small furnaces. Southwest from Reisterstown are very extensive beds of chrome ore, yielding a large proportion of that artQele produced by our State, which furnishes the entire supply of chrome used in this country, and much of that used in Europe. The large beds of clay in the vicinity of Baltimore have always been celebrated for producing bricks unequalled in the country for uniformity of color and smoothness. This clay is also manufactured into stoneware and earthenware. Beds of clay for fire-bricks also exist in the same vicinity.

    Large quarries of fine building stone are extensively worked, affording good granite and goelis, in the vicinity of Baltimore. In the neighborhood of Texas and Cockeysville are unlimited quantities of excellent marble, the fine-grained while species used for the Capitol extension at Washington, and the slum marble, well known from its use in the construction of the Patent Office at Washington. Large quarries of limestone exist in many parts of the county; a great quantity is burned at Texas. Lime is abundant in Long Green, Dulany's, Greenspring, Worthington and other valleys, which valleys contain some of the very finest and most productive lands in the State. There are some fisheries on the bay shore, and some of the best points for shooting wild fowl. This county is well provided with traveling facilities; most of the roads leaving the city are turnpikes, whilst all the railway routes also center here. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad running south-westerly and westerly; the Western Maryland railroad north-westerly; the Northern Central extends the entire length of the county in a northern direction, and the Philadelphia Railroad towards the east. There are also horse railways running westerly to Catonsville, and northerly to Towsontown, seven miles from Baltimore. The county is in length about 35 miles, the greatest width is 28 miles, and the least width on the Pennsylvania line about 11 1/2 miles, giving an area of 718 square miles.

    Is a mountain valley, enclosed by numbers of undulating knolls and heights covered with evergreens and wild flowers of every description, and springs of purest water burst from the hillsides and gush and gurgle through the shrubbery, till they are lost In the noisy stream below. This place is owned by Mr. C. W. Bentley, of Baltimore, and bears his name, and is situated thirty-one miles from Baltimore, on the Northern Central Railroad, 600 feet abeve tidewater. Embracing upwards of 260 acres of land, it forms one of the most beautiful and romantic spots in Baltimore county. The water at this place, as shown by Prof. Alkin's analysis, is highly medicinal, that of the principal springs resembling closely in composition and curative properties the water of the celebrated Lebanon Springs in New York State. Some years ago a hotel was erected with handsomely improved grounds. This hotel was burned several years ago. In the vicinity are a number of extensive paper mills. All the paper made at these mills Is shipped from Bentley's, and the materials used are also received through this station. This, taken in connection with the agricultural products of the neighberhood and the other freight shipped from and to this station, manes this a place of no small import. Within two miles of this place are situated three grist mills in connection with several saw mills, which have become a necessary convenience for the farmers in the vicinity. A school house is also being erected to accommodate the pupils who now assemble in one of the lower rooms of the warehouse. The improvements may be briefly enumerated as follows: To the west, at the foot of a high hill, nestles " Sunny Side," the summer residence of Mr. Bentley; In front of this is a large stone warehouse, used for the storage of freight; a few yards south of this, on the opposite side, is a neat frame building, used as a store and residence; at some distance north and facing the station is located the M. B. Parsonage of Bentley Springs Circuit; this is a tasty frame cottage, so situated as to command a view of the beautiful suno~nding scenery, and itself constitutes an attractive feature In the landscape of the romantic spot; still further north is the new M. E. Church, a fine large buliding, the material composing it being a fine quality of blue stone, which is abundant in this section. At a point between the railroad track and the parsonage Mr. Bentley is having erected a very extensive foundry, boiler and machine shop, the foundations of which are nearly completed- When this establishment is finished Mr. Bentley contemplates removing his establishment on Front street, adjoining Jones' Falls, Baltimore city. This will be the means of securing employment to a largenumber of hands, and of giving new life and excitement to this locality. The place promises to become a favorite summer resort very soon again, as the ground has been purchased from Mr. Bentley for the purpose of rebuliding the Glen House on a larger scale. Work will soon be begun, and the hotel will probably be ready or occupation by next season. Population 50. J. Houston, Postmaster.

  • Calvert County

    CALVERT COUNTY lies on the Western shore of Chesapeake Bay, and is one of the smallest counties, being in length about 32 miles, with an average width of about 7 miles, having an area of 235 square miles. This county is a peninsula, and bounded by the Bay on the East, the Patuxent River on the West, and on the North by Anne Arundel County. The surface is undulating, and drains from a central elevation towards the Bay and River, into which numerous little creeks empty.

    The soil is a soft fine mold, except on the Patuxent where it is more clayey, and is well adapted to the growth of corn, tobacco and wheat, though the great staple is tobacco. The climate is generally warm and mild. The waters of the Chesapeake and Patuxent abound in the finest fish and oysters; immense quantities of the latter are annually carried to Baltimore and the Northern markets; the trade employing large numbers of men. Tripoli, which is used as a polishing material, Is found in many localities, the deposit on the Patuxent being very large. Marl exists also, affording a good fertilizer in many localities. Oak, chestnut, pine and locust are the natural timber growths, and mostly line the navigable waters, and are carried to market.

  • Caroline County

    CAROLINE COUNTY is of small area, and is bounded on the east by the State of Delaware, north-west and west by Queen Anne's and Talbot, and south by Dorchester counties.

    The main branch of the Great Choptank River runs through the county, and is navigated by steamboats to Denton. This, with several creeks, afford excellent facilities for sending produce to market, and in return, obtaining lime, ashes and manures; scarcely any land lying more than five miles from navigable water.

    Some of its soils are sandy, some are low meadow-lands of rich black earth, but the largest proportion is a loam with a clay subsoil. The last will produce grains, grasses, vegetables, cotton, and tobacco, which latter two are raised in small quantities very successfully for domestic use. The sandy soil is very productive in sweet potatoes, and every variety of vegetables and fruits. Peaches are very largely cultivated and sent to Philadelphia, Baltimore and New York markets.

    The general character of the county is level, but sufficiently undulating to afford drainage, and the roads are mostly level and hard, and give very fine travelling facilities. Some excellent fisheries of shad and herring are in the county, and crabs, wild ducks and other game are abundant in their respective seasons.

    The county seat, is an ancient little town, situated on the Great Choptank River, 6 miles below the head of navigation of schooners of 100 tons burthen, 150 miles by water to Baltimore, and 90 by rail to Philadelphia. It is incorporated and its government confided to five Commissioners and a Bailiff, who hold their places for one year from the date of their election. Its site has an elevation of from 25 to 30 feet above the level of the river, it is well drained, and consequently has the recommendation of freedom from mud, a pest of most country towns. The main street has well paved side-walks which are well shaded by Maple and Georgia Poplars. It has tri-weekly communication with Baltimore. Ridgely Station, on the Md. & Del. Rail Road, can be reached daily by a ride of 6 miles by stage coach. Street lamps afford light. Water is supplied by pumps and is of excellent quality, though somewhat unpleasant to strangers, being slightly impregnated with iron. The public buildings, viz: tile court house and jail (the latter seldom occupied by its appropriate denizens) are built upon a public square of rather more than an acre in extent, filled with shade trees, making it a pleasant resort for the citizens of the town in hot weather, and affording splendid croquet grounds; the square is said to be the largest and prettiest public square on the shore. The court house is built in old English style, having a main building of brick, with wings of the same material on either side. The town is remarkably healthy and equally quiet. It has of places of public worship, for the whites, one Methodist, one Catholic and one Episcopal church, and two churches for the colored people; it has an academy, having a higher and lower department; and two comfortable hotels. The Masonic Fraternity has a commodious hall for their meetings. Population 500. Chas. Stevens Postmaster.

  • Carroll County

    CARROLL was created by an Act of the General Assembly passed at the session of 1835-86, and again at the succeeding session of 1836-37, and it was organized early in 1837. The county was named in affectionate honor of the then venerable and yet venerated Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the last survivor of the Signers of the Declaration of American Independence. It was formed from the eastern portion of Frederick and the western portion of Baltimore Counties. The soil of a large part of the county is of singular fertility, and especially in the regions known as Pipe Creek Valley, Sam's Creek Valley, and Bachman's Valley, is unsurpassed as to productiveness, probably by an equal area in the world. The community is essentially agricultural; perhaps, it is more entirely an agricultural county than any other in the State. A large number of considerable fortunes have been amassed by patient industry and prudent painstaking, economy, by farmers, before the advent of railroads and the mighty rush of modern progressiveness. Indeed, every farm, particularly in each of the valleys mentioned, was occupied by an owner, who accumulated surely by slow processes. With the advent of the stock and bond era, came, to many of these careful men, the thirst to grow rich more rapidly. The mines of wealth lying around them were, to an extent, neglected for more shiny ores; and it may be doubted whether, during the new era, the particularly fat and fruitful regions of the county have advanced in substantial wealth. But, as compensation, other large regions, with whose soil nature had been less prodigal of favor, have wonderfully increased in value and productiveness, by the combined agencies of labor, lime, and other fertilizers. In population it is fourth in rank, being exceeded only by Baltimore, Frederick and Washington. In the moderate, comfortable, competence of the people, it is believed to be at least equal to that of any county in the State. There is very little of overgrown wealth, and very little aching poverty. The aggregate wealth is distributed amongst the mass with remarkable comparative equality. It has not one millionaire to curse or bless it as the case might be; considerable number of its citizens own one hundred thousand dollars in value, and perhaps a fraction more, whilst large numbers are possessed of ten, twenty to fifty or sixty thousand dollars, and large numbers yet of smaller sums, but equal stalwart independence and manliness of feeling and sentiments, with any and all their neighbors. Steady moderation is a peculiar characteristic of the people of the county. The juries are distinguished for giving moderate verdicts. The county authorities never subscribe for railroad stocks or bonds; and display no taste for grand undertakings in architecture, or other of the huge arts. The people thought they needed one railroad and they built it, substantially, with their own means, so far as they had need for it; but when others thought that it ought to be grander and bigger, and go further, the people listened but kept their hands off their own and their neighbor's pockets, and left to the others to do their own way, in their own way. The products of the county are mainly cereal, and of the dairy. In the southern part of the county the land is adapted to tobacco, and formerly large quantities were produced, and smaller quantities -are still produced. Limestone is superabundant, and facilities for the improvement of the soil are all that can be reasonably expected, or desired, by men willing to work. The lands of Carroll, like those of all other counties, in all other States, have shrank in salable value, until that which only has any actual intrinsic value, (which is the only basis of all values,) has hardly any market price. Consequently there is more or less opportunity for men of moderate means, and who desire to increase them by honest labor, to come in and make homes, and raise their own corn, bacon and grapes; nature has not exhausted her beneficence. In Carroll at all events; and keeps in store, even grapes, for those who will plant and tend the vines. Every man's palate and his children's palates may be refreshed and gladdened, if only be be willing, in earnest. The soil is of great variety, but each variety is yielding to the touch of labor, and sends out its fruits with a sort of joyful gladness, to meet that honest touch. The surface is rolling and variegated, presenting no flat lands, or standing water, nor mountainous heights, but a succession of valleys and hills, all of which are of easy cultivation from base to summit, and yet presenting sceneries of much general beauty. The principal streams are Little and Big Pipe Greeks, Sam's Greek, Morgan's Run, and the north and south branches of the Patapsco, each affording tine water power, many of which are appropriated by numerous flour mills and minor manufacturing enterprises. The north branch of the Patapsco has its rise at Westminster, and, within two miles of its head, acquires large proportions, increasing in volume steadily until it reaches Finksburg Station on the Western Md. R R This road runs immediately by the side of the stream from this station to its head, about 9 miles. A flouring mill of good capacities is very near the head of the stream; a short distance below is a large and important tannery, conducted by Messrs. Bear; again a flouring mill, and these are the only appropriations, thus far, of the numerous magnificent water powers with which the stream abounds. The attention of manufacturers ought to be, and will assuredly, in time, be attracted to the peculiar advantages offered by the succession of powers, within this short distance; one amongst which is an entire immunity from destructive floods, growing out of the fact that the head of the stream is too near to permit sudden large accumulations of water. In healthfulness this county is unsurpassed. There are no local causes for disesees of any kind; chills and fevers and mosquitoes are unknown. At New Windsor, a flourishing village on the W. M. R. R., surrounded by as beautiful country as earth contains, there has been carried on for several years a fine hotel and boarding house, which has been extensively resorted to during the summer months. At Westminster there are several good hotels and comfortable boarding houses, which have become resorts, to a moderate extent, for a few years past; and during the past summer the City Hotel was opened to visitors, and patronized to the full measure of its capacity, after extensive additions and improvements had been made, enabling accommodation for largely over one hundred guests. Westminster is believed to be now as agreeable a summer resort for moderate people in search of health and comfort only, as can be found anywhere. Taneytown, one of the oldest villages In the State, abounds in health and comforts; so of Uniontown a sweet, clean, inviting village, and so also of Manchester, Hampstead, Union Bridge and other smaller towns, which are scattered through the county, and all which invite the toil worn and city-be-grimmed to the quiet repose and pure healthful comforts of God's own beautiful and gracious devisings, which He has properly scattered around them all. The county, when formed, had one bank, one of the first chartered in the State, and conducted with great skill and profit to its stockholders, and Some advantage to the community perhaps. It still continues, having renewed Its youth, and dispensing its benefits to its stockholders anyhow, to say no more, under the broad aegis of the U.S. Three young and lusty sisters have been added to the family so that now we are blessed with four, almost enough. The Western Maryland College, under the general patronage of the Methodist Protestant Church, Is located at Westminster, and is a vigorous institution of most respectable standing, with an able, careful and laboring faculty Calvert College, at New Windsor, is resuming the usefulness and regaining the position which it occupied for many years, and up to the war, under the energetic control of Its founder, Mr. Andrew H. Baker. It was his own private enterprise, and a most honorable one; but its weight, under the reverses occasioned by the war, crushed him. Its magnificent location at New Windsor, and fine buildings, finely arranged and again occupied,. remain and invite more extensive use than is now made of them. A private academy of high grade Is conducted by A. McKinney, near Taneytown, excluded from all contact with the distractions of the outside world. There are other respectable private schools. The public school system is in healthful condition throughout the county, at an annual expenditure of about fifty thousand dollars At Union Bridge are the workshops of the W. M. R. R., and several miner manufacturing establishments; so also at Manchester are some manufactories, and at New Windsor. At Westminster is located a very extensive and important establishment, the "Taylor Manufacturing Company" which does a large business in the manufacturing of vertical, horizontal and stationary engines, which are in demand in all parts of the country from Maine to Texas. The engines manufactured by this company have some peculiar excellencies not yet attained by other establishments, this at least is the inference from the very extended demand for its products from almost all other localities. The agriculture of the county is in an advanced state, with room, however, for improvement by added labor. The capacities for manufacturers, especially the water powers, strongly invite more enterprise. The men of the county are perhaps equal to the average of their neighbors of the State, but are not pretentious, and in fact possess no title to superiority over the mass of mankind; and if there be any, the number is very limited who conceive themselves to be above the common average of their neighbors. Moderation is a characteristic of Carroll County.

    Is a thriving and important town on the W. M. R lit., 18 miles from Westminster and 45 from Baltimore. Climate and health good. It has a large trade in grain, lumber and coal. The town was originally known by the name of "Buttersburg," derived from the quantity and quality of butter taken in exchange for merchandise, by one of the early merchants of the place. It was made a post village in 1810, and the present name given to it. It is to this town that the proud honor belongs of having given the first conception of the reaping machine to America. Jacob B Thomas, a resident of the place, gave birth to this conception, and so far completed his plans as to put a reaping machine with automatic attachment, in the harvest of 1811. This machine was pushed by men, and like many of the earlier productions or Inventors, was a partial failure. It did, however, cut and gather grain, by its crudeness subjected the inventor to ridicule, and his sensitive spirit could not cope with this and the incredulity of his neighbors; he abandoned his work and left the glory to be gathered by his cousin, Obed Hussey who, taking up the Union Bridge model, perfected it into an operative machine, and thus became known to fame as the pioneer of reaping machine. Capt. Daniel Rinehart, a brother of the sculptor and producer of Clytie, lives but a short distance south; It was upon a marble quarry, upon his elegant farm, that the young Rinehart first attempted to give life to the cold marble. There is a charming succession of meadows, fields and hills surrounding the town, and all fat with richness; and from a hill one mile west of Union Bridge, the eye rests upon a scene beyond description. Off to the northwest, in towering grandeur, are the Catoctin Mountains, which serve as a background to the ever varying hill, dale, meadow and wild wood. To the south, verdant fields rolling, rising and rolling, hide behind nestling forests, clothed in the drapery of autumn's richest foliage. It Is here that the artist can find many views superior to the beautiful, natural scenery, already upon canvas, in Corcoran's art gallery; it is here that the Maryland farmer is a millionaire, his lime fields are gold fields; here substantial houses, costly barns, neat, enduring fences - all tell that prosperity is at home. The soil is of limestone and old red sandstone, and varies in price from $50 to $150 per acre, and produces 15 to 40 bus wheat, 80 to 60 oats, 40 to 90 corn, and 1 1/2 to 3 tons hay. There is a flourishing cabinet furniture manufactory here; one high, one public and a private school, under the management of the Friends. The town is incorporated and is governed by a mayor and hoard of councilmen. Population 600. Moses Shaw, Postmaster.

  • Cecil County

    CECIL COUNTY was organized in 1674, and named in honor of Cecilius Lord Baltimore. It is the most northern of the Eastern Shore counties, and forms the north-east corner of the State, being bounded on the north by Pennsylvania, on the east by Delaware, (the celebrated Mason and Dixon's line separating the three States,) on the south by Sassafras River, and west by Chesapeake Bay and and Susquehanna River.

    This County is one of the most thriving and enterprising in the State. The character of the land is mixed, the part above the Bay being mostly rolling and quite hilly, like the Western Shore, and below Elkton, quite level and similar to the adjoining Eastern Shore counties. The soil comprises every variety; a considerable portion centrally situated, called The Barrens," being pure sand and gravel, (though this section has of late much improved), whilst other parts have heavier clayey soil, mixed rocky, and the lower part an excellent light clay loam. The County is well populated, and the farming and improvements generally are in advance of the average throughout the State.

    Wheat, oats and corn are the staple farm productions; very large crops of hay are raised and sent to Baltimore and elsewhere in bales. In the southern part, known as Sassafras Neck, are many large peach farms. The crop is very large and profitable here.

    Cecil County possesses inexhaustible quarries of excellent granite at Port Deposit, on the Susquehanna River. Soapstone exists on the same river, and in the northern part near Pennsylvania are large beds of iron ore and chrome, comprising a good proportion of the most valuable chrome mines in the world. Near North East River are extensive deposits of clay suitable for making fire-bricks, and, laterally, discoveries are reported or kaolin or porcelain clay or a fine quality. At North East fire-brick is manufactured extensively by two firms. They give employment to a large number of persons and their goods find a ready sale. Here are also the extensive rolling mills of the MoCollough Iron Co., and a razor-strop factory, making this quite a manufacturing village.

    The County is welt watered and possesses some of the best water-powers, which are in most cases well improved with large furnaces, forges, rolling mills, paper, grist, and saw mills. All the paper used by the Baltimore Sun and Philadelphia Ledger is manufactured at mills a few miles from Elkton.

    "Gilpin's Falls," on Great North East Creek, is a wild and romantic place, and is also a great water-power, which is at present not used. The creek falls about a hundred feet in a very short distance. Cecil has the largest number of shad and herring fisheries of any county in the State extending from the mouth of the Susquehanna River around the bay and river shores into the Sassafras River. These shores also afford abundance of wild fowl in season. The County enjoys excellent facilities for transportation.

  • Charles County

    CHARLES COUNTY, containing an area of 499 square miles, and occupying the southwestern part of the State, is bounded on the west and south by the Potomac River, which here makes a large curve in its course. Prince George's County binds it on the north, and St. Mary's on the southeast. The county is entirely devoted to agriculture, the principal crops being tobacco, corn and wheat. Tobacco is the staple production, of which large crops are raised. Fruits, berries and vegetables are also produced to a limited extent, although the soil and climate are well suited to their growth. Fine fish and oysters abound plentifully on the shores of the numerous creeks; also game and wild fowl in season. The surface of the county is generally low and sandy, but sufficiently rolling to be well drained by the many streams flowing into the bordering rivers. The soil is easily improved and well adapted to the growth of all kinds of crops, with fruits, vegetables, hay and stock raising. Climate is mild and healthy, temperate in winter and pleasant in summer. The county offers unusual inducements to emigrants in its favorable climate, cheap lands, nearness to navigable waters, good soil, easy of access to markets, churches, schools, &C The construction of the Pope's Creek Branch of the B. & P. H. H. affords quick and convenient communication for a large portion of the county with the markets of Baltimore and Washington; and the waters of the Patuxent, Potomac and Wicomico Rivers also furnish cheap means of transportation for the products of the county. Many farms border on these waters, and the planters use their own landings or wharves. The county has a splendid outlet on the Patuxent at Benedict. The river front is here from three to four miles, and is available at all seasons. The county needs emigration to till the soil and to start mills, factories and shops. There are splendid openings in several good localities for mills and mechanics. Many farmers are compelled to go long distances for these facilities. We unhesitatingly recommend all seeking good homes to visit this county before locating.

  • Dorchester County

    DORCHESTER COUNTY is one of the Eastern Shore counties, and extends from the Chesapeake Bay to the Delaware State line, and is bounded on the south-east by the Nanticoke River, which separates it from Wicomico County, and on the north by the Choptank River, which is between it and Talbot County, and by Caroline County.

    The county contains an area of 770 square miles. The surface is generally level and easily tilled. The upper part is sufficiently undulating to create some water-powers, which are in some cases improved by grist and saw mills. The soil is variable and of the same character with most of this shore of the Bay. It ranges from a stiff clay to a light sand, and in many places a black loam. No better lands are known than those along the banks of the Choptank River. Shell mantle, which is to be found in some localities, affords a good fertilizer. Oak, hickory, pine and walnut are the natural timbers, and are abundant, and largely exported for ship building, cord wood, lumber and other purposes.

    A good part of the county is uncultivated, but where well tilled, the land is generally quite productive. The favorable climate, water, and general location of the county is attracting the attention of emigrants and others, and quite an addition to the population has been made in the past five years. Wheat and corn are the staple farm production's, with large, quantities of fruits, berries, and vegetables. The production of peaches is largely increasing, and becoming very profitable. Shad and herring fisheries are numerous and generally do a fair business, the trade of some localities being almost entirely of this kind, whilst most all sections have plentiful supplies of fresh fish. Oysters are very abundant and of the finest kind, the county taking in some of the upper part of the great oyster beds of Tangier Sound, the most famous oyster field of the State.

    Several firms are largely engaged at Cambridge in packing and shipping these oysters, adding much to the trade of that already growing and prosperous town.

    The county is almost surrounded by navigable waters, and is intersected by the Transquaking, Chicacomico, Honga and Black Water Rivers, also Church, Fishing, Slaughter's and other creeks, which give the county facilities for transportation not excelled by any other locality in the State. The construction of the Dorchester & Delaware Railroad, extending from Cambridge to Seaford in Delaware, places a large part or the county within quick and convenient communication at all seasons with Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York. The section through which this road runs has and continues to improve. Settlers have been attracted and many farms sold. Dorchester County presents many attractions to emigrants, and large numbers have already settled in several localities. Good water, fertile lands, churches, schools, healthy climate, plenty of fish, oysters and wild fowl, are some of the indncements here offered.

    The county seat, is delightfully situated on Cambridge Creek and on the left hank of the Choptank River, about eighteen miles from its mouth, and has a water front on two sides. The river at this point is two miles wide, and furnishes one of the chief attractions to strangers, who indulge in boating, bathing, fishing and the sports usually sought by pleasure-seekers, while the natives and others find it a source of revenue from the oysters that abound in its bottoms, and the ducks and geese which haunt its creeks and coves.

    The town is of great antiquity, as evidenced by the style of architecture in which some of the houses are built, the material in a few instances having been brought from the mother country. They are open, southern, commodious, and surrounded by ample and neatly kept grounds, with lawns and gardens. The grounds of some slope down to the water of Cambridge Creek, where the banks are terraced and protected by low parapet walls.

    At the present day no town on the Peninsula is making more rapid growth. Its population has increased fifty per cent, within the last eight years. It is lighted with gas, and mainly supplied with water from pumps, wells and cisterns. Its mechanics all find employment, and numbers from Baltimore and elsewhere have had constant work at remunerative wages. Upwards of three hundred houses have been erected during the past five years. Enterprises of different kinds have sprung up, stimulated no doubt by the excellent facilites of transportation to Philadelphia, distant only 140 miles by railroad, over which daily trains are passing; and to Baltimore, distant about 70 miles, to and from which are daily lines of handsome and commodious steamers.

    The oyster trade is considerable, both by canning and shipments in their natural state. Four packing-houses are in active operation, while others at this writing but projected will soon increase the number. The largest and most complete flour mill on the Eastern Shore has just been completed. A marine railway gives employment to many, and does the repairing of boats built and heretofore repaired in the city. Numerous saw-mills are busily engaged in convelting the choice timber of the surrounding neighborhood into good and merchantable lumber.

    The people are refined, educated and hospitable. The climate is healthy, and seldom severe; the people look ruddy, and consumption is seldom known.

    The land is a clay loam, mostly cleared. Oak, pine, gum and maple comprise the timber standing. Lands range in price from $10 to $100 per acre, according to location and improvements. Produces 10 to 40 bus. wheat, 10 to 70 oats, 100 to 250 potatoes, 20 to 75 corn, 2 to 8 tons hay; tobacco not raised as a crop. Crops and business generally good.

    The town is incorporated, the management of its municipal affairs being entrusted to a Board of five Commissioners, whose ordinances and edicts are scrupulously carried out by a faithful bailiff, who constitutes the police force. The only public building of note is the Court House, a handsome edifice of brick, built in 1852, said to be the most convenient in the State. The Jail, located in the rear of the Court House, is an old building, erected in the last century, and not at all in keeping with the other buildings. Efforts, however, are making to supplant it with a new and more modern one.

    Previous to the hurricane of September, 1876, a beautiful willow grove ornamented a deep vale on one side of the Court Honse, where excursion parties during the hot months enjoyed the cool shade and the water of a delightful, sheltered spring. But the hurricane desolated the vale and prostrated the noble trees.

    The Government, appreciating the importance of this location, has expended considerable money in connection with private capital in digging out the Cambridge Creek and widening the channel, so that at all times the town has a safe harbor and plenty of water. Many people from Delaware and the lower counties of Maryland avail themselves of the steamboats plying between Cambridge and Baltimore for traveling and freight purposes. The facilities for education are: Seminary for Young Ladies, a High School for Boys, and several primary schools for both sexes, white and colored. Population 3,000. Wm. F. Pattison, Postmaster.

  • Frederick County

    FREDERICK COUNTY ranks with the largest counties, having an area of 642 square miles, and is bounded on the North by Pennsylvania, on the East by Carroll, South-easterly by Montgomery, South by the Potomac River and Virginia, and on the West by the Blue Ridge, or South Mountains, separating it from Washington County.

    This is one of the richest and most beautiful counties in the State. The soil is mostly limestone, with some slaty and considerable "red lands." The surface is undulating--partly mountainous-- The Catoctin Mountains dividing the county into two broad valleys, that to the Westward being known as the Middletown valley, which is drained by the Catoctin River and its branches; and that East of the Catoctin range is the valley of the Monocacy. Both rivers flow Southward into the Potomac. These two great valley are unsurpassed for rural beauty, and excellent farming, and produce extraordinary crops of the principal grains of this latitude. The Eastern slope of the Catoctin Mountain is a most excellent grape country.

    The county is well watered by innumerable pure springs which flow into the branches of the rivers before named, and create abundance of water powers which are improved by large grist and saw mills, and merchant or flour mills. There are also a number of other mills, tanneries, and various domestic manufactures. An immense water-power unimproved, exists on the Potomac River at Weverton. The narrow valley between the Monocacy and Buckeystown has a rich deposit of marl composed of lime and earthly substance, which extends to a considerable depth; this with the limestone yield an inexhaustible supply of manure.

    Copper mines in the Linganore section have been worked since the Revolutionary war. New Liberty and New London are several mines, now extensively operated. There are several slate quarries, one of which near Ijamsville on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad produces a large supply of excellent roofing material. Along the side of Catoctin Mountain iron ore abounds, of the brown hematite speciea. Some of these beds although worked for 80 years seem to be inexhaustible. From Woodsborough to the Potomac is a range of limestone marble unusually pure, varying in color from blue to dove cr. It takes a beautiful polish, and is similar to the famed Italian marbles of that color. At the foot of Catoctin Mountain there is a similar bed, and one resembling verde antique. West of Frederick is another kind of variegated shades of light and dark red, and on the West side of Monocacy is found the variety widely known, from having been used for the columns in the old hall of the House of Representatives of the Capitol at Washington. Frederick County is centrally traversed by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, with a branch from Point of Rocks through Montgomery County direct to Washington, materially shortening the distance from the West to the National Capital, at the same time affording needed facilities to the local sections through which it passes. The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal rims along the Southern boarder near the Potomac River, and the Western Md. Railroad along the Eastern boarder to Hagerstown and Williamsport, with connections at the York Road in Carroll County with the Frederick and Pennsylvania division of the Pennysivania Railroad Company, for Frederick and other points in the county. The county enjoys good facilities for transportation to alt sections and is rapidly increasing in wealth and prosperity.

The approach to this town from the East is full of varied and pleasing interest; from tbe mountains, looking Westward, on towards the Blue Ridge, an unsurpassed picture of wide and diversified landscape, flanked on either hand by mountain ranges, rolls upward and downward before the eyes of the charmed observer; from this point the town is seen lifting its spires above the hills which environ it on the east. The whole valley lies outspread, rich, smiling and fruitful; farms, lusty barns, dwellings, orchards, and mills attest the fatness of the land. The soil is composed of clay and quartz; land mostly cleared, is valued at from $25 to $80 per acre, and produces 10 to 20 bus. wheat, 15 to 80 oats, 25 to 60 corn and 1 to 2 1/2 tons hay.

    Is on the Frederick & Pennsylvania R. R and Woodsboro turnpike; it is 55 1/2 miles from Baltimore, 10 1/2 from Frederick, and near Israel's Creek and the Monocacy River; it lies in the midst of a fertile and salubrious country. The lands are of diversified formation and pleasingly undulating; the chief formations are of limestone, blue and yellow slate and the old red sand-stone; they vary in value from $25 to $100 per acre, and yield 8 to 20 bus wheat, 15 to 85 oats, 25 to 50 corn and from 1 to 2 tons hay; about seven-eighths of the lands are cleared or timber, and that yet remaining is composed of chestnut, oak and hickory. Woodsboro points with affectionate pride to the old edifice which gave rest and refreshment to Washington, when he encamped his foot-sore army on their march to Philadelphia, on the adjacant hills. The town was then on the great highway from the South, by way of Frederick, York and Lancaster, to Philadelphia. The old house which served Washington for his headquarters, was built of split logs and filled in with mortar and stone; it is now incorporated in a stone and brick building. The old house subsequently became a tavern, and bore, until the last quarter century, the sign of Washington mounted on his charger. The town was plotted in the colonial days by Col. Joseph Wood, who afterwards served in the war of Independence. A lenial descendant of Col. Dr. H. L. Donsife yet preserves the old original charter of the town, now nearly 100 years old. There is yet standing, in good preservation, the old edifice of Col. Wood, built in the old English style of bricks imported by him from England. The town was named in honor of Col. Wood. There is within 1 1/2 miles of the town rich deposits of magnetic iron ore, which were extensively mined when the iron trade was flourishIng. There is also most excellent hematite iron ore in the neighborhood. German Reformed Church, Rev. Orange E. Lake; Lutheran, Rev. D. N. LaMotte; M. E., Rev. C. C. Cronin; M. P. Rev. J. R. Nicholls, and one public school. Population 350. John Baker, Postmaster.

  • Garrett County

    GARRETT COUNTY, the last formed county in Maryland, is the extreme western division of the State, and is bounded on the east by Allegany County, south by the North Branch of the Potomac River, west by the State line of West Virginia, north by Mason and Dixon's line, and contains an area of six hundred and seventy square miles of territory. Is crossed its entire length north and south by the Great Savage Mountain, a distance of over forty miles. This Alain Ridge of the Alleganies divides the east and western waters. Two-thirds of the territory of the county lies west of this Summit Ridge; on the east is the Maryland Coal Basin, one-third of which is in Garrett County; on the west, flowing north from the south end of the county, is the Yougbiougheny River and Castleman's River, draining with their tributaries and other valuable but undeveloped coal and iron region. The streams flowing from the west side into the Youghiougheny are Laurel River, Snowy Creek, Harrington, Muddy Creek, and Buffalo Creek; on the east side, Cherry Creek, Little Youghiougheny, Deep Creek, Lary Run, Bare Creek, and Mill Run. The Savage River has its sources and tributaries in this county, and empties into the North Branch of the Potomac, at the extreme eastern end of Garrett County.

    The geology is composed of sand stone, lime stone of fine quality, and stone coal of fine quality, as above stated. No county in the State contains more valuable mineral deposits in coal and iron ore. The elevated table lands on the western side of the Savage Mountain, and between that and Meadow Mountain, covering an area of four hundred square miles, is an elevation of two thousand five hundred feet above tide, comparatively level; is about one-third glade, interspersed regularly by ridge or timber land, and is admitted to be the best grazing portion of the State; is only partially settled, and offers superior advantages for farming and stock raising. Immense forests of timber cover large portions of the county. Pine, oak, maple, and all hard wood found in high latitudes of the best quality. Products, wheat, corn, rye, buckwheat, oats, potatoes, wool and butter. Grass grows naturally on the glades, and timothy and clover in abundance follow cultivation. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad passes from east to west, a distance of thirty miles, through the southern end of the county, and the National Road through the northern end of the county a distance of over twenty miles.

  • Harford County

    HARFORD COUNTY is of medium size, having an area of 480 square miles, is the North-eastern corner of the Western shore, and is bounded on the east and south-east by the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay, on the north by Pennsylvania, and on the west and south-west by Baltimore County. This county possesses a great variety of soils, the lower part being level, and composed of some sandy and some clay lands, but mostly of a light loam, very easily worked and improved. The section called the Necks has mostly very fine and large farms, with extensive peach orchards. The country above the Philadelphia turnpike is undulating and in some parts very limy, the soil comprising clay, light loam, and considerable limestone, the last mentioned being mostly found in the upper part of the county.

    This county is well watered by branches emptylng into the Little Gunpowder River, and Winter's and Binum's Runs, which flow southward Into the Chesapeake, and by Deer Creek and its tributaries, which drain the northern part of the county, and flow into the Susquehanna. "The Rocks of Deer Creek" is ohe of the most romantic spots in the State, and well worth a visit of the admirers of the great works of nature. These rocks form a great promontory projecting over the road, passing along the bank of the Creek.

    Perhaps no county in the State has improved more in appearance, fertility and general prosperity, during the last few years, than Harford. The productions are wheat, buckwheat, oats, corn and hay. This county possesses fine water powers, improved by furnaces, factories, foundries, flour mills and numerous saw and grist mills. In this county are large quarries of excellent building stone of a goelsa or granite character. The county possesses large beds of iron ore, asbestos, and some of the most valuable chrome beds in the world. Near the Pennsylvania line, extensive slate quarries have been worked, and near Ahingdon there exists a very large deposit of kaolin or porcelain clay, of a pure white color, very good quality, fit for making fine porcelain ware. Very large shad and herring fisheries are located around the Susquehanna and Bay shore, and innumerable flocks of wild fowl swarm around the tide waters of the county, and afford with the fisheries a good business for many of the inhabitants of that region.

    The Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad passes through the county from Havre de Grace, and the Tidewater Canal runs along the west bank of the Susquehanna, having its outlet at Havre de Grace. The Baltimore, Towsontown and Delta Railroad, which is now being laid out, when constructed, will give additional facilities to a large portion of the county.

    Is on the P. W. & B. R. R., 21 miles from Baltimore and 9 miles from Bel Air; It is located in a diversified, improved and generally fertile country, enriched and beautified by tasteful dwellings and ornamental grounds; it is equidistant from the Gunpowder and Bush Rivers, on a ridge which declines by such emy lines on either band as to lead the eye to suppose the whole peninsula a unllbrm plain. Gen'l Cadwallader's magnificent domain of nearly 10,000 acres adjoins the place, and extends away to the shores of both of the above mentioned rivers. This is a noted point for sportsmen, the rivers abounding with fish and crabs in the summer, and in the autumn and winter they afford to the canvas back and red head ducks, celery grass and other marine plants, which will impart in 24 hours to these lordly water fowl, that high perfection of flavor so prized by epicures. These rivers are so famed that they are visited by sportsmen from remote points. The health of the place is generally good, subjected in early autumn to slight malarial diseases. Soil is composed of sand and clav barns lands one-half cleared, vary in value from $20 to $50 per acre, and produce 10 to 20 bus. wheat, 25 to 50 bats, 25 to 60 corn, 100 potatoes and 2 tons hay.

    Is one of the oldest towns in the State, a settlement having been made here about the same time Claiboine settled Kent Island, in 1634 or '5. Several houses are still standing, dating back over a century. The town is beautifully located on the south bank of and near the mouth of the Susquehanna River, where it empties into the Chesapeake Bay. It occupies a portion of a plain extensive enough to contain a city equal to London; flanked on the west by gracefully rising hills of checkered green and gold, while further in the background, rising to greater heights, are the laureled-browed mountains overlooking the river. Along the eastern front winds the bright, majestic river, emptying just below the town into the wide extended arms of the lovely Chesapeake, whose blue waters are here and there gemmed with emerald islands rising from the shining surface.

    The harbor is said to closely resemble that of Rio de Janeiro, the most beautiful in the world. History tells us that General Lafayette recognised a striking resemblance in the harbor and surrounding scenery, to that of Harve, (formerly Harve de Grace) in France, and it is said, that owing to the expression of Lafayette's, the name of the town was changed to Havre de Grace.

    The Susquehanna, extending more than four hundred miles to the great falls, and draining, as it does, a district more rich in agricultural and mineral products than any other on the continent, makes Havre de Grace the cheapest and most natutal outlet to the seaboard for the products of the pine forests, petroleum districts, and the great anthracite and bituminous coal fleids of Pennsylvania. With water and railroad communication to all points of the compass, in close proximity to the great Atlantic cities and commercial centres, within two hours by rail of the capital, and about four to the metropolis of the nation, in the midst of a rich agricltural country, abounding in wood and water; the waters in the immediate vicinity yielding in great abundance and at the cheapest rates, the most desirable varieties of fish and water fowl, make, when combined with a genial and salubrious climate, Havre de Grace a delightful and desirable place of residence, either for business or leisure.

    The town is incorporated and governed by a Board of five Commissioners, elected annually; it is handsomely laid out with wide streets. The general architecture of the town is not costly or imposing. The houses are neat, and the flourishing gardens and yards, ornamented with shrubbery and flowers, display the cultured taste of the residents.

    The manufactures, consisting mainly in a steam merchant flouring mill, two canning establishments, a bone grinding and fertilizing factory, an extensive saw and plaining mill, and a double track marine railway, capable of hauling out the largest class vessels.

    The shad and herring fisheries in the immediate vicinity afford employment to many, and add considerable to the business of the town. During the fall and winter, quite a number of the residents are engaged in ducking, and a large revenue is derived from this source. Another branch of industry, in favorable seasons, is the cutting and storing of ice; as much as 200,000 tons have been cut in one season. Probably the largest business carried on here is the re-shipping of anthracite coal. Two of the great mining and carrying companies are represented-the PenuL and the Reading, the former by Measra Hilles, Boyd & Co., and the latter by A. P. McCombs & Co.

    There are here several fine Churches, a Town Hall, Odd Fellow's Hall, a High and Primary Schools, for white and colored. Population 2,000. T. M. Sumption, Postmaster.

  • Howard County

    HOWARD COUNTY is one of the smallest counties, having an area of 300 square miles, and a length of about 25 miles and a width of about 12 miles; is Centrally situated between the head waters of the Patapsco and Patuxent Rivers, the west branch of the former stream separating it from Carroll and Baltimore Counties on the north and east, and the main branch of the Patuxent binding on the south-west between it and Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. Anne Arundel County, (of which it was a part until 1850), binds it on the south-east.

    This county is very undulating and the soil mostly good, though not all improved, with considerable fine limestone land in the central and southern parts. It is completely intersected with spring branches flowing into the larger streams, and affording a large amount of excellent water powers, which are mostly improved by factories, mills, furnaces, &C. Some of the very best water powers and largest factories in the State are on its two boundary streams. Inexhaustible quarries of granite exist in the county; one variety near the upper end of the county much resembles the famous Quincy granite. The largest quarries, or those most extensively worked, are at Sykesville and Woodstock, on the Patapsco, and from which stone the Cathedral and Record Office in Baltimore were built. Another variety called porphyritic granite, has reddish crystals of feldspar disseminated through it. There are large iron ore beds next to Anne Arundel County and near the Washington Railroad. Howard has thirty-one miles of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad on one side, and twelve miles of the Washington Branch on the south-east, which, together, give convenient access to almost all parts of the county. This accessibility, with the eminent natural advantages of pure air and water, and innumerable beautiful building sites, are promoting improvements, and the vicinity of the railroads is being built up with fine country seats.

    Seven miles west of Eliicott City is the estate of Dougheregan Manor, once the home of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, now owned by the present Governor of Maryland, Hon. John Lee Carroll, and other Carroll heirs. This estate contains nearly 14,000 acres of the finest land in the county. Has a postoffice, Harper Carroll, Postmaster, who also owns a mill. A general store owned by D. J. Foley. M. B., P. B. and Roman Catholic Churches and public schools near. The farm products are wheat, corn, potatoes, oats, tabacco and hay. These, with the various ore mines, large cotton manufacturing, and other business interests, afford remunerative employment to the people and add much to the wealth and prosperity of the county.

    Is on the B. & O. B. R, 16 miles from Baltimore. Is a rapid growing and fast becoming the most flourishing village in the county. The business is derived from the extensive cotton mills located here.

    These mills are owned by the firm of Messrs. James S. Gary & Son, (now organized as the "Gary Manufacturing Company of Maryland,") who have operated them since 1858. During the whole of this period the spindles have heen kept in motion, except for a few weeks in the year 1868; stoppage at that time being necessitated by the great freshet which occurred in the summer of that year, and which resulted so disastrously throughout the whole of the valley of the Patapaco. Additions have been made from time to time to the mill property, until now it is one of the largest establishments of the kind in the State.

    The proprietors have provided ample church and school accommodations for the operatives and their families. Besides these institutions there are flourishing temperance societies and building associations, with considerable accumulation of capital.

    The mills and several other buildings are lighted with gas, and a large reservoir on the adjacent heights furnishes an abundant supply of pure water for drinking purposes, as well as a ready protection against fire.

    The factory grounds are regularly laid off with gravel walks, and adorned, with trees and shrubbery. In the summer several beautiful fountains are kept constantly playing.

    Population 800. James S. Gary, Postmaster.

R R., 9 1/2 miles from Baltimore, pleasantly situated near the Patapsco Riyer, over which the Railroad crosses by the Thomas Viaduct, an imposing granite structure 66 feet high, 8 arches, each of which is 60 feet span. Elk Ridge Landing is one of the oldest towns in the State and for a long time contended with Baltimore for the commerce of the northern part of the colony. It was a great tobacco market, and where now there is a meadow and a marsh, vessels came for their cargoes of tobacco. The land is excellent, principally cleared; is worth from $50 to $500 per acre, according to location and improvements, readily produces 15 to 80 bus wheat, 25 to 50 corn, and 2 tons hay. M. E.

    The county seat, is situated on both sides of the Patapsco River, and lies partly in Howard and partly in Baltimore Counties. It is distant fifteen miles from Baltimore City by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, and ten miles by the Baltimore & Fredericktown Turnpike. It was formerly known as Ellicott's Mills, but was incorporated by the General Assembly of 1867, since when it has been called Ellicott City. The scenery about the city is noted for its beauty and picturesqueness. The well known flour mills of Gambrill & Co. are situated there, and there are also within its corporate limits several celebrated institutions of learning among them being the Patapsco Female Institute and Rock Hill College. The country around is noted for its healthfulness and the fertility of its soil. Farm lands sell readily for between sixty and a hundred dollars per acre, and the farmers find a ready market for their wheat at the flour mill. Truck farms are numerous, and all kinds of vegetables, fruit and poultry, meet with quick sales from the various grocery stores and families of the city.

    The city has entirely recovered from the disastrous effects of the memorable flood of 1868, and is now in a flourishing and prosperous condition. Its proximity to Baltimore, together with its railroad conveniences, render it a desirable residence for those wishing to combine the pleasures of country and city life, and many persons doing business in the metropolis make their homes in the neighborhood of Ellicott City. Population 2,900. R. N. Wharry, Postmaster.

  • Kent County

    KENT COUNTY is the second in the tier of Eastern Shore counties; has an area of 318 square miles, and is bounded on the east by Delaware, and is a peninsula lying between the Sassafras River on the north, separating it from Cecil County, the Chesapeake Bay on the west, and the Chester River on south and south-east, separating it from Queen Anne's County.

    The first settlement of the county was made by William Clayborne and a Protestant colony from Virginia, with Rev. Richard James of the Church of England, Rector. The settlement was organized and represented by Captain Nicholas Martin, [Martinau] in the Legislature of Virginia, several years before the charter of Maryland was granted to Lord Baltimore. The first county seat was the "Towne on Kent Island;" the second was New Yarmouth, on Gray's Inn Creek, where the first session of the County Court was held 22d June, 1686.

    The county is level though not very low, and sufficiently rolling to be well drained by many creeks flowing into its border rivers and the Bay. The soil is mostly a light friable clayey loam, very easily improved and productive. Wheat, oats and corn, and every variety of vegetables, grow abundantly. The farms are very fine where attended with any care, and nearly every farm has an orchard of hundreds, and in some instances, thousands of peach trees, producing immense crops of this delicious fruit, which are taken to market by the Sassafras and Chester River steamers, which run daily most of the year. Several single peach orchards in the county yield sufficient to employ one steamer in the fruit season. Other fruits grow well where cultivated.

    Kent has abundance of fine fishing, and on the Bay shore and in Chester River inexhaustible oyster beds, which give employment to a large portion of population. There are thousands of wild ducks, swans, &c., which also afford game and much profit to many persons. The productions are wheat, corn, oats, potatoes, wool, hay, live stock, and orchard products. The Kent County & Smyrna & Delaware Railroad, and the Chester and Sassafras Rivers, offer every facility for freight and travel during all seasons of the year.

    Kent County has given to Maryland many of her ablest and most distinguished citizens, among whom may be mentioned, with pride, Captain Robert Vaughan, Colonel Hans Hanson, Thomas Ringgold, merchant; Colonel Isaac Perkins, Judge Ezekiel Forman Chambers, and Hon. James Alfred Pearce. In the city of Baltimore old Kent is now worthily represented by Hon. S. Teackle Wallia, at the bar, and by the eminent merchant, Mr. James Hodges, in commercial and financial cireles.

    The county seat, is the third county seat since its settlement in 1627-8, and organization in 1642. In 1706 Chestertown, (called the Town of Chester,) was laid off upon a tract of land, containing one hundred acres, "on a plantation of Mr. Joce's," but languished until 1730, when an impetus was given by increasing traffic and a growing population. Being a port of entry, its foreign trade was extensive and very remunerative. Large warehouses were built, and elegant and commodious residences were erected by its wealthy inhabitants. It soon became the fashionable centre of a highly cultivated and refined circle. In 1752 lt boasted a handsome Town Hall and a conve- nient Theatre, and was inferior to no provincial town on the continent in intellectual culture and commercial importance.

    The trade of the town now is largely dependent upon the natural products, fruit, grain and vegetables, of the well cultivated and productive lands of the county. Manufactories of agricultural implements, carriages and iron-ware, are already successfully established; but there remains a good opening and wide field for many branches of skilled labor and enterprise.

    As a place of residence and business, Chestertown proposes many advantages. It is beautifully situated on the right bank of Chester River, about 60 miles by water from Baltimore, and is distant about 90 miles by rail from Philadelphia. It is, therefore, within easy reach of either city, and can avail itself of the markets of both. The market of Chestertown is well supplied with butcher's meats, of every kind, poultry, fish, game and oysters, and, in their season, with an abundance of the best fruits and vegetables.

    The inhabitants are kind, generous, hospitable, and are well provided with comfortable places of public worship, and the means for the proper education of their children.

    The schools in town, public and private, are very good, and afford every facility for the acquisition of a solid education in all the Important English branches. Near town, within a walk of five minutes, is the venerable Washington College, founded in 1783, presided over by a learned faculty, and capable of imparting a thorough collegiate education; covering a commanding eminence near, is Chester Cemetary, a beautiful burial place for the dead.

  • Montgomery County

    MONTGOMERY COUNTY, having an area of 508 square miles, is bounded - on the south-west by Virginia, on the north-west by Frederick County, on the north-east by the Patuxent River which separates it from Howard County, and on the south-east by Prince George's County and the District of Columbia.

    Large quarries of sandstone are opened near the mouth of Seneca Creek, of which the Smithsonian Institute, at Washington, is built, and also a marble quarry near the Potomac above Poolesville. A quarry of excellent roofing slate has been opened near Hyattstown. Other varieties of building stones exist but are not yet developed to any extent. Several gold mines are being worked in the northern part of the county and near the Great Falls of Potomac. Also chrome ore has been largely extracted from the central part of the county.

    The surface of the county is mostly loamy, and gives rise to many branches and creeks, which possess some of the finest water-powers, this being, in fact, one of the features of this county, most of the streams having very considerable fall in but a short distance. The Great Falls of the Potomac-belongs to Montgomery County, and constitutes perhaps the grandest available water-power in the Union. These water-powers are partly improved with a number of large flour and grist and saw mills. The soil varies greatly, the western or upper part of the county being a finely cultivated and fertile region, whilst the more northern part although more thickly settled, is a thinner and poorer soil. The eastern section, near to Howard and Prince George's Counties, is mostly a light sandy, with some clay land, and exhibits, in its vast improvements about Sandy Spring, what may be accomplished by industrious skillful tillage. These lands, which were formerly almost a wilderness, with a value of two or three dollars per acre, have become an excellent farming district, and worth $30 an acre and more. This county binds the District of Columbia on the north-west and partly on the north-east, and from its proximity to Washington, (which is one of the best markets,) is being cultivated considerably in market farms. Its elevated and very healthy character is attracting many persons to locate country seats. The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal runs along its entire southwestern border, and the Metropolitan Branch of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, from near the "Point of Rocks" to Washington, through the centre of the county, affording convenient access to nearly all parts.

    The productions are wheat, corn, oats, potatoes, tobacco, hay, wool, honey, butter and live-stock.

  • Prince George's County

    PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, having an area of 500 square miles, is the northern county of one of the peninsulas on the western shore of the Chesapeake. It is bounded by the Patuxent River on the east, Potomac River on the west, Montgomery and Howard Counties on the north, and Charles County on the south. It surrounds the eastern and north-eastern portions of the District of Columbia. No county in the State offers greater inducements to settlers. The Baltimore & Ohio and Baltimore & Potomac Railroads both pass directly through the county, and the main stem of the Baltimore & Potomac Railroad runs south through the fertile regions of the county, and the Southern Maryland & Point Lookout Railroad from Washington direct to tide water, also passes across this county, thus giving every acre of land easy and near access to the markets of Baltimore, Washington and Alexandria. The soil is mostly light loam, (mixture of sand and clay,) some localities running into clay and others into sand, and peculiarly adapted to the cultivation of all kinds of marketing, fruits, grapes and dairy purposes. Owing to its locality, vegetation is about two weeks eariler than the locality of Baltimore, a large portion of the county being high and rolllng and above tide water. Swamps exempt it from malarial objection. It abounds in springs of delightful water. The principal products are tobacco, corn and wheat. This county in the past has heen celebrated for its wealth and tone of society, having furnished the State with six of its Governors, viz.: Ogle, two Bowies, Kent, Spring and Pratt. Owing to the abolition of slavery, lands have deteriorated very much in value, about 50 per cent of antebellum prices, and can be purchased at from $15 to $50 per acre, from half an hour to two hours of the three markets above named.
