He commanded the troops at Cambridge until the arrival of Washington, when he was placed at the head of the right wing at Roxbury. y The name of this town was changed in 1837 to Auburn, on account of the inconvenience in tlie transmission of letters, from its resemblance to Ware. Hut there are so many towns in other States by tho name of Auburn, iliat there is scarcely less Inconvenience now in this respect. It is a somewhat remarkable circumstance that, for most of the time since the town was founded, there has been but one religious society, the Congregational, in town. Some years ago...
A Pretty Good Bad Boy. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 30 April 1887
A Pretty Good Bad Boy. A good many years ajo now, a small, barelegged boy set out from bis lioinc In Portsmouth, N. 11., for sn afternoon's sport Willi a gun.

The governor was a very popular and distinguished ma i, who was being talked of for the Presidency, and we should not have liked the small boy if be bad not hern a little overawed by finding himself alone In the presence of so august a personage. Ho was equal to the occasion, however, and as the chaise reached bird, he stood aside to let it pass andgravply presented arms. The governor at once pulled up his horse and looked with amusement at the little fellow standing there as serious as a sentry, and wllh his gun held rigidly before lilm.

Kin Beyond Seas. VBOM THI TBIBUBB'I srICIAL COBBB*rOKDIKT. We are In the midit of Holy Week and the Enter celebrations. The first Intimation we bad that the season was approachinn; was that one afternoon the-priest In robe and stole was seen coining through the green fields, followed by an acolyte carrying a pall of holy water. They were going about blessing tbe bouses. What fun that small boy must have seeing the Interiors of so many houses—tbat Is, if be be endowed with usual curiosity of boy nature, aud, as far as our experience goes, acolytes seem much like other boys. Not only the bouses are blessed but, if be be invited, the priest also goes into the stables and gives the benediction to tlie sheep and cows.
