staff, 2s. 6d." The penalty for not serving when chosen
was forty shillings, and in default of payment or want of
property, was imprisonment.

By an act passed December 24, 1799, for the better
observance of the Loifd's day, and repealing all other acts
for that purpose, all labor and recreation, traveling, and
rudeness at places of public worship on the Lord's day, are
forbidden. Taverners are forbidden to entertain inhabi-
tants of the town. The tythingmen had power to com-
mand assistance, and forcibly stop and detain all travelers,
unless they could give sufficient reason. The tythingmen
were required to inform of all breaches of the act, and
their oath was sufficient evidence, unless invalidated.

Having given the votes for Governor, and marked them,
and the Representatives, to show the position of the town
in regard to the political parties since 1803, it may be
necessary to give an outline of the various parties.

The first division into political parties was in regard to
the federal constitution ; those favoring it were Federalists,
those opposing it, Anti-Federalists. The Federalists pre-
vailed, and the government under the constitution went
into operation, and all united in electing and reelecting
General Washington president. But some had more faith
in democracy, of the people, .than others. The French Rev-
olution occurred, and as they were avowedly fighting for lib-
erty, for democracy, or republicanism, and they had aided
us, there was a natural sympathy with them, while the
government took neutral ground. Two parties grew up

out of these elements, called the Federal and Republican.
John Adams and Hamilton may be considered the represent-
ative men of the Federal party, and Jefferson of the Repub-
lican. The Republicans prevailed, and Jefferson took the
presidential chair in 1801. The political lines do not
seem to have been drawn in Chester until 1803.

The Republicans kept the control of the government
through embargo, non-intercourse, war, and the European
wars, — all exciting topics, — and elected Munroe president
by an overwhelming majority, in 1817. He took a very
pacific course, and for various reasons the political elements
W'Cre hushed, and he was reelected all but unanimously,
and the old parties. Federal and Republican, were at an
-end. At the next presidential electioir. New England was
nearly unanimous for J. Q. Adams. William H. Crawford
was a caucus candidate ; General Jackson and Henry
Clay were also candidates. There was no choice by tlie
•electors, and Adams was elected by the House. A furious
opposition grew up. The parties were Administration and
Opposition.

At the next presidential election they were Adams and
Jackson. Jackson prevailed, and his adherents became
Democrats at last, and his opponents called themselves at
first National Republicans, then Whigs. The "Whig jiarty
were not successful, and sometimes the election went by
default.

The Abolitionists made some political demonstrations,
and in 1840 formed the Free Soil party ; but it made very
little progress. In the presidential election of 1856 the
old Whig party became utterly extinct, and a new party was
formed, the distinctive principle of which was to prevent
the extension of slavery into new territory. It was named
the Repuljlican party. John C. Fremont was its candidate
for president, who was defeated.-

There are some of the votes for governor which do not
come strictly under the party names. Isaac Hill had been
chief political manager, and had nearly everything his own
■way, but some of his own party were not entirely satisfied.

In 1823, Saml. Dinsmore \ras the regular candidate for Gov-
ernor, and Levi Woodbury was nominated as an indepen-
dent candidate, and supported by all who were dissatisfied
with Mr. Hill's management. He was elected, but Tyler-
ized and went over to Mr. Hill. I think that in 1826,
D. L. Morrill, though belonging to the Democrat party, was
an independant candidate, in opposition to Pierce, the regu-
lar nominee.
