f Beaver Valley, Dec., 1872.
Beaver, the county seat of Beaver coun
ty, is the oldest town in Beaver valley,
having been laid out during the last cen
tury, while yet the whole country around
it was a “howling wilderness,** and the
home of the wild beaks, native to this re
gion. Though the life of the town has
been an eminently quiet one, and scarce
a ripple has been raised on its surface by
the commotions and excitements incident
to almost every other town In the valley,
yet a partof its history, in Its aboriginal
life, tradition inform ns, was characterized
by some of the most romantic and daring
adventures, and some of the most Interest
ing incidents ever witnessed in this coun
try. The bare mention of Beaver, thrown
the mind back nearly a century, to the
building of old Fort Mclntosh and to its
subsequent career and history. Cluster
ing around the history of that old Port,
is found many an event or transaction of
real life, that would lend an enchantment
to the pen of the most gifted writer, and
furnish the literary world with some of
the brightest and intensely interesting
works of romance and daring.
For years the fort was occupied by
soldiers and traders, some of whom had
bouses on the outside, which they occu
pied with tbeiir families, undergoing the
privations of frontier life, and enjoying
the excitements and sports attending it.
It has been the theatre of many an ex
ploit of the renowned Brady and his
brave associates, and under the inspira
tion of hotly contested chase after the
“red skins," some of the most consum
mate skill and sublimest bravery that the
world ever saw was there displayed.
Who has ever shown a nobler or more
self sacrificing human spirit than the
rough frontiersman, who, to save from
captivity and death a neighbor woman,
rushed into the very jaws of death, and
defying the guns of a troop of savages,
carried her off in safety to camp, and re
stored her to her home ?
Where has there ever been a more for
cible illustration of brotherly love, than
that of a man—supposed to be devoid of
all the finer feelings of humanity, raised
and trained amjd the wild scenes of back
woods life, —who, when his comrade was
wonnded onto death, rather than leave
him to the mercy of the savages and a
victim to the scalping knife, picked up
his shattered body and carried him off,
followed by a horde of fierce savages,
with their demoniacal yells and brandish
ed tomahawks! But such things did oc
cur. Another interesting incident is re
lated, occurring at Fort Mclntosh about
the year 1781, which must close this
series of personal adventure. There were
three brothers living at the fort by the
name of Bevington, the eldest of whom
had a family living in a bouse of their
own. The three brothers were absent
from home upon one occasion. The wife
and child of the eldest were at the house;
the other two bad not then married. A
hired tman was ploughing in a field close
by the house. Sometime during the day
a neighbor came up to the door on horse
back, and was talking to Mrs. Bevington.
Wbilst'he sat on the horse chatting with
her, they heard a gun go off. The labor
er came running toward the bouse. The
neighbor instantly dismounted, took the
saddle and bridle from bis horse aud
turned him loose. There were two In
dians pressing the wounded laborer hard;,
Mrs. Bevington and the neighbor entered
the house, determined to keep the door
ajar until the poor fellow could enter, and
then instantly close it. After entering
she missed her youngest child. The no
ble-hearted settler seized a gun and rushed
out after it; as he went the wounded man
passed him. He attempted to shoot one
of the Indians as be came up, but his gun
snapped. He ran toward the child, de
termined to rescue it or die. ‘When he
got close by it, one of the savages was
upon him. He instantly clubbed his
rifle and knocked him down over a hog
trough, seized the child and bore it in
triumph into the house. The Indian was
severely hurl by the blow, and he, and
bis companion made off rapidly, taking
care to keep a cover between their bodies
and the port holes of the bouse. Mrs.
Bevington shouted to them in tones of de
rision “Not to be in a hurry, to come
bach,” but they retreated, intent upon
escaping punishment.
Upon the abandonment of Fort Mcln
tosh, the fields that had been cleared,
again became a part of the wilderness.
History famishes us with the following
information relative to the laying oat of
the town of Beaver:
“By the act of September 28th, 1791,
Thomas Mifflin, the Governor of the
State at that time, was instructed to be
caused to be surveyed 200 acres of land in
town lots, near the mouth of Beaver
creek, on or near the ground where the
old French town stood, and also 1,000
aores adjoining, on the upper side there*'
of, as nearly square as might be, in outlets,
not less than five nor more than ten acres
each. By the same act, 500 acres were
granted for an Academy. Daniel Leet
surveyed the town plot.”
The probable motive at that day for lo
cating the county seat at a distance from
the great manufacturing advantages at
the falls, was the existence of the well
known shoal just below the mouth of
[Paper No. 6.]
Beaver, a difficult and dangerous passage
to the keel boats and other craft in use at
that day. By the location here the town
v?as accessible alike to the lower and up
per trade, and the obstructions them
selves would probably throw considerable
business in the place. Samuel Johnston
first settled at Beaver in 1796. He kept
an inn bn the bank of the river, near.
Port Mclntosh. In 1860, the town was
made the seat of justice, and incorporat
ed, March29th, 1802.
Among the early settlers, we find re
corded the names of such men as James
Allison,: Thomas Henry, Joseph; Hemp
hill,"James Lyon, Samuel Lawrence, men
of honor and character, and who, though
no# at rest with their are yet re
membered with sacred reverence by the
generations following them. Their in
tegrity of character, intellectual ability,
and moral worth, have left us some of the
substantial and leading men of our conn-:
ty. It wbuld probably be invidious to
mention the names of any of these worthy
descendants, when it is remembered that
all of them are held in the highest esteem
by their neighbors, and some of whom
have occupied high places of trust and
honor, at the hands of the country, and
State, and fellow-citizens.
At the time of the incorporation of the
town the whole region was a dense wild
erness of trees and saplings, as indeed
was nearly the whole of the entire valley.
It is related with great interests by those
who were boys at the time, ho# the mill
ing used to be done in those days, when
there was but one mill for all, located
above New Brighton, and called "Wolfs
There was a single, narrow, road cut
through the forest leading to the mill,
over which tbe good old fathers of the
olden time, used to carry their wheat on
horseback to be ground, and return with
the flour. It is hard for one in this val
ley of mills, where tons of wheat are
ground daily, to now comprehend that
ever such a time existed, except in imagi
The first officer in the county at the
courts was David Johnson, a man of high
literary attainments, and great ability,
who was appointed as first Protbonotary
by Governor McKean. Mr. Johnson was
the pioneer of education in this western
conntiy, and sacrificed an immense
amount of valuable property, nearly all
his possessions, under the patriotic im
pulse of giving to the neglected of his
country the principles of education. The
court was held at that time in a little log
cabin standing on the bank of the river*
not a great distance from Fort Mclntosh.
It is to be regretted that no incidents of
the early courts can now be had, as they
would no doubt be very interesting. Bor
der justice is not proverbial for its gravi
ty, and we read of many ludicrous occur
rences in Western Pennsylvania, daring
the sitting of some of the courts in early
Beaver remained mostly a wildernes fur
a long series of years, no building of any
consequence being done until about 1810
or 1812. A court was erected in
1810, of brick, by Percifer Taylor as con
tractor, to which an addition was put in
1846. The original structure, though
isjxty-two years of age, bears its years
well and looks good for as many more to
come. A jail was built in 1812 which
stood a great many years, but was suc
ceeded by a fine sand stone structure
built in 1856. What the court did for a
place fqr criminals up to 1813, history
does not inform us, but it may be that
they were confined in a part of the court
house—the old log building. Or it may
be that prisoners In those days had more
respect for the dignity of the law than is
now shown, and gracefully obeyed its
sentence until released by proper order.
Outside of these two buildings to meet
the ends of justice, but little improvement
of any consequence took place. Here and
there amid the gloomy grandeur of the
forest trees, an bumble . residence was
erected for the accommodation of the
plain people, who dug from the unwil
ling soil its roots and brush and forced it
to supply their wants, and there laid the
foundation for the future greatness and
comfort of a people not so plain in costume
or living.
But very little progress of any kind was I
made until about 1828 or 1830. As an in
stance of the wildness of parts of the coun
try, I give place to a “Bear Story,” oc
curring in the year 1828. The hero of
the adventure was Mr. David Johnson, a
son of the first Protbonotary. Mr, John
son loved the sport and excitement of
hunting and was accustomed to range
through the woods on the edge of the
town, and secure the wild game which
was quite plenty. On this occasion, be
prepared his trusty rifle, and started
forth. His course lay in the direction of
the upper part of Bridgewater, then
Sharon, where there was an excellent
hunting ground.
He had wondered around a while in the
woods, when, to his astonishment, he
found coming toward him ready for fight,
a bear of very large size. There were
two courses open for Johnson to pursue,
to fight or run. He decided to give him
one shot and make for home. This be
did, when the bear followed him with
more than agreeable energy. Johnson
had a little’dog, which kept the bear an
noyed by nipping at his heels, and thus
retard the progress of Bruin and allowed
Johnson tojjkeep in the advance. His
line of retreat lay toward the street of
I Beaver, now leading out to Fallston. At
boose, rad fortunately tie ’‘‘man of the
house”waeatwork obK L '’aibr:
companled by a large dog Ho 'saw the
approach ng hear and got his gon from
the house, by which time the man and
bear were in front *of his house. The
presence of another actor on the scene of
conflict, and an ’ additional dog* at his
heels, potthe bear on the defehsiVe, and
he commenced a lively retreat toward the
river.: s As/he passed through the town,
its qnietjstreets were enlivened by the'
barking of dogs, thescreamingiofwomen,
the faallooof the boys and the cheers of 1
the men, and the worst scared bear of the
lOthcentury. The bear got to the irlWct
edgeand took to the water forsecurity.
Three or four men immediately boarded
a ■ ‘dug put,” and started' in pursuit. The'
bear nms r overtaken,' but war entirely
equal to the occasion. When the boat
overtook him, he very quietly * clambered
over the side and took possession, the
pursuers giving up and surrendering'
their bpat “unconditionally.” Bruin
very knowingly eyed the crowd on shore,
as if in exaltation over hiseasy victory,
bat was soon brought to terms, after
several bullets had been lodged in him,
when he was brought ashore i and dis
posed of.
After this date, improvements, were
more rapidly made, and several fioebo lid
lags erected daring tbe succeeding years.
Up to the breaking out of the late war,
three educational institutions had been
put up, two or three churches, and a
good substantial newspaper was in full
operation. In 1861 the United Presbyte
rian Church, and in 1863 the public
school building were erected. Indeed,
tbe last ten years of the history of tbe
town, have been its most progressive,
during which period it has been modern
ized and relieved very much of tbe stiff
ness and primness of its early life. Tbe
people step a trifle livelier, as if they
"meant business,* 1 and altogether it has
put bn quite a business air. It is fast
losing the reproach that used to be at
tached to it on account of its quiet and
seemingly general lassitude. People no
longer say of Beaver, “It’s your county
seat," and then look as if they were
ashamed to mention the fact ; but on tbe
contrary Us a “high day,” when the
towns and townships send their beauty
and wit to tbe various county gatherings,
and old Beaver is then respected.
But Beaver has much to learn from tbe
other valley towns, and they can, in their
high estimate of themselves, if they will,
learn much to their profit from the good,
staid, model town of Beaver.
The solidity of wooden persons is far
from being exhilarating, but it is less
troublesome than the sensitiveness ol the
thin skinned folks who are always shying
at something, tike a horse that pricks up
bis ears and jumps half across the road at
a heap of stones or a broken fence-rail.
This unhappy class are forever having
their feelings hart. When you are trying
your best to suit them, they somehow get
slighted and when you are doing your
best to make them happy, you succeed
somehow in making them wretched. If
you make a little dinner' company, and
they are left out, they 1 feel hurt, and then,
if you make another little company and
they are invited, they feel hurt again, be
cause they don’t meet some who wfere in
the company. If yon set them right in a
matter of fact, they are agrieved, and If
you set them right in a matter of argu
ment, the wound is about incurable. And
decided difference in opinion, however
frankly and pleasantly urged brings the
red blood into the clouded brow, and you
feel very sorry, for there was no malice
prepense. You are surprised to find that
you* sensitive friend has been brooding,
and if of the gentler sex, weeping for
months, over something wh icb, for your
life; you can’t remember. It is a misfor
tune to be absent or short sighted, for
you may be habitually cutting and lacer
ating these sensitive spirits without know
ing it, and their unhappiness is just as
real. They must always be individualiz
ed and specially treated. Their corns are
i always in the way and in your awkward
endeavors to step around them, you have
already trod them in so excruciating a
manner that the most abundant apologies
only make the matter worse.
We have, as like as not, already wound
ed the feelings of some very sensitive
people who may feel themselves particu
larly alluded to in this article, and hesi
tate about going on. But if it will at all
diminish in their minds the poignant
sense of the cruelty of what has been
said, we will add that dyspepsia is gen
erally more to blame than they are them
selves, the fault is not apt to be so much
in their dispositions as in their livers; Ro
bust health, a great deal to do, and daily
exercise in the open air, avoiding [tattlers
as you would mosquitoes, and tearing
yourself away from whisperers if it takes
every button off your coat, but always
stopping to greet the man who langbs
—that is to say, who laughs contagiously
and abominably—this is excellent for very
sensitive people. This is what is the mat
ter with not a few clergymen who are tco
thin-skinned and lose too much sleep over
“peculiar trials,’*—they don’t take exer
cise enough, they live too many hours in
close studies, hugging air tight stoves,
they don’t knock about enough among
humanity at large,— publlcans and
sinners in the open air. —Springfield Re
