Twins, Incident. —In the Carlisle Go-

"Married, Jane 22, 1790. in Franklin
county, the twin brothers McKibheo to twin
sisters named Beard, of Clark's Gap, in said
county."



A Cobeection —It woold take up weekly
the regular issue of Nates and Querist if the
proper corrections were made of the many his-
toric blonder* which find their way into the
newspapers, apart from the labor it woold
involve. Now and then these error* are so
conspicuous that it is eminently proper to
apply the corrective. A receot illus-
trated Sunday newspaper of Phila-
delphia has produced a represen-
tation of the log honae of John Harris, the
Indian trader, in its illustrations of the city
of Harrisburg. That in itself was all right,
but their correspondent placed under the en*
graving • -Remodeled and still standing at
Front and Mulberry streets. " In the first
place this trader's bouse was not there lo-
cated, and was probably torn dowo a century
ago, for the Harris msosion was erected In
1766. The log house built fifty years prior
woold have decayed long ago whether re-
modeled or not

About thre*- fourths of a mile northeast

on the eaat bank of the stream, in what is
now Mr. Page's field, the plow-sheer Urns
■p evidences of so ancient building sits.
The memory of tee oldest inhabitant doee
not reach beck to a time when tbeee mine
presented any different aepeet from that
which is now visible, excepting that about
fifty years ago an old trough was to be eeen
lying half baried in mod, jest below a spriog
of water which rises hard by the building
site. The stream thus utilised in the olden
time, is one of the breeches of the creek
which from days immemorial has turned
what is now Boyd's mil), and i» said to have
been stronger formerly than now.

The tradition concerning this particular
spot is, that at an early day, long before the
Revolution; a distillery was located here, in
the loft of which a lodge of Mason* held
their meetings. Several stories are told about
these Masons and their efforts to guard agsiost
the impertinent curiosity of the uninitiated ;
which stories would seem to be verified, from
the fact that once every month, at the dead
hour of night, strange knocking* sre still
heard, as of a tyler alarming bin lodge, fol-
lowed by a hurry-skurry through the woods,
bat nothing is told of the man who built and
operated the distillery, if toch it was. Who
was he t and what lodge of Masons met
here?

It would seem to be en easy task to trace
the ownership of property in this locality,
but in the case in hand, the difficulty lies in
the fa t that the land upon which the dis-
tillery stood was not included in the sur-
reys of either John Wll-oo or Ed-
ward Sharp, both of whom were
original owners of what were «uppo*ed
to be adjoining tracts. Messrs. Wilson and
Sharp both died in the early part of the last
century, Mr. Wilaon's property de> eroding
to his son William, whilst Mr. Shcrp's lands
passed bv purchase to Mr. Page, the ancestor
of the pteseot owner. Accurate survays
having been made, it was discovered that a
strip of land, twenty- five or thirty rods wide
la? betweeo tbe two estate Mr. Page soon
afterwards purchased this strip from the
Penns. The dam and about half the length
of the race was within Mr. Wilson's survey
and the building with the remainder of the
race was oo the vacant land. If one of these
original proprietors was a Mason and the
other was not, the M»ison was doubtless tbe
operator of the distillery. If hot \ or neither
of them were Masons, the qoestiou then re-



mains, who wee the proprietor cf this still,
which was dismantled more than a century
and a quarter ago?

The qoestiou is rather curious than impor-
tant, for it is rare indeed that any mine can
be fonnd in Americ* later than those of the
Mouod Builders, whose history cannot be
fully treced. The reproach has often been
cast upon ns by foreign travellers thai we
have no mine whose history is lost in tbe
unknown, amongst which tbe poetic soul can
sit dowo and weave garlands of story to suit
the passing whim, and whilst it is proper to
submit questions such as this to the erudition
of the £ 1 1 tor of Note* and Q'ier at, one can
aluuMt wish that he aball fiua himself uneMe
to brow any light upon the old dam and its
appendages, end so leave unbroken the mys-
tic spell which has for ages rested upon in
haunted shores. W. P. &.

On the 29ih April, 1763. William Edmonds
became an inmate of "The Ko-s Inn" prior
to taking charge of the store which was in the
conise of erection a few rods south of that
hostelry and facing the road to the Minisiuk.
This storehouse was built of unhewn logs,
and was thirty feet square; it was one story
in height, and contained a dwelling room,
kiicheo and two cellars, in addit'oo to tbe
store room. Oo its completion it was
stocked with diverse merchandise to the
amount of £960.5 3±, and Mr. Edmonds at
a stlary of £65 per annum, including board
and firewood, assumed charge under the fol-
lowing warrant of Nathaniel Seidle ••the
Moravian Proprietor:"

hereby constitute, empower an J appoint
htm, the 8aid William Edmonds, to be
storekeeper or factor at tbe boose Utelj
erected for tbai purpose io Plain A •'Id towo-
sbip, in tbe County of Northampton, and
Province of Pennsylvania."

A well-thumbed "Blotter of the Rose
8tore" (8 February 1769 -March 1772) io
the Archives at Bethlehem, attests th* brisk
bosioe^s traosacted at this mart with ihe
neighboring settlers for sopplies, aod with
tbe Indians of Wyalnsiog aod other po ; ots
aa remote as Shesbequin, 8hamo k aod
Owego, who exchanged skins, deer Wet and
wooden ware for stronds and half- thicks and
powder and lead. Oo the 1Kb of July,
1767, the building was struck by lightning
and slightly damaged With the c»m
pletioo of a store- house in "new"
Nsssretb, William Rdmood's connection
with the Rose atoro ceased, and on the
£6th October, 1772. he removed its stock
aod fixtures to the new building. He retired
in 1773 after a service of near tweoty years
io i he stores of the Church. The store at
the Rose, however, wss continued by his son,
John A. Edmonds for Dorst Allemao, who
became its purchaser. Towards the close of
the la*t century the store house was again
struck by lightning, and this time totally de-
stroyed

During the years of contention between
Great Britain and her American Colonies,
WilL ; am Edmonds espoused the cause of the
Colonies, and during the struggle for Inde-
pendence he was a whole sonled patriot.
His advanced age precluded him from par-
ticipating in the operations of the army, but
be gave his time and iniuence sn its behalf.
At the autumnal election of 1770, he was
again elected to represent bii couoty in the
Assembly, receiving 623 votes to his oppo-
nent, James Alien s, 183 votes, and through
tbe partiality of his constituents, was re-
elected to the sessions of '71, '72. '73 and
'74

An enumeration of the principal Commit-
tees on which be wired, will aid us in form-
ing an opinion of his ability as a legislator,
aod the estimation in which he was held by
his associates. Throughout his legislative
career, he wss a member of the "Committee
on Aggrie vanes, " one of the most important
of all standing committees, "taxatioo of the
colonies by great Britain;' "Excise tax;'
"to grant an additional member to represent
Northampton county in the AttS.mbl) ;" *'to



increase tbe duty oo importation of slaves;*'
"measures for putting the city and Province
io a state of defence;" and he invariably
rated against the granting of money to the
king.

In 1774 he was one of the four delegates
from Northampton to tbe Provincial Con-
vention held at Philadelphia 15th July, where
it was resolved to hold collections for the
relief of the Bostonians, suffering from the
effects of the Boston Port tfil ; aod in 1775
was appointed a member of the Committee
of Safety of Pennsylvania, serving from
Jnne 30 to October 19.
