HISTORY OP THE BEAVER VAL-
Ccrrespondence of the Pittsburgh Gazette.
Beaver Valley, April, 1873.
[Paper No. 12. J
PALLSTQN—EDUCATIONALLY AND BPIBITU-
In the year 1833, “Pallston Academy”
was built and dedicated for school and
religious purposes, throwing open wide
its doors for all who felt Called to instruct
the people intellectually, or in the prin
ciples of religion. It was free to every
denomination, without respect to creed
or forms or ceremonies, and answered
well the purposes (or which it was built.
Here for years, the lion and the lamb
lay down together in the most absolute
peace and quiet—that is to say, the
Presbyterians and Methodist lion and
the Quaker lamb. No persecution for
opinion’s sake under the roof of that
building, but it is fairly presumable that
while the lion and the lamb were at
peace, that the lion was more or less at j
war with himself.
Did you ever see an old style Metho
dist and true “Blue stocking*' in a “De
cree" tussel ? Put a couple of those
worthies together at that day, and the
effect would be similar to that of steel on
flint; the fire would fly, indeed it means
business. No doiibt if the good old
building, whose cupola yet points it .out
to every passer by, could relate its own
history, it would tell us stirring stories of
the good old lime, when the “Pinal per
severance," <&c., caused many a hotly con
tested literary warfare, between the said
Calvinist divine and the impulsive Meth
Those days have passed, but we have
the,old academy yet. From its walls,
the irrepressible youth of the town have
gone forth to battle the world, and wrest
from it, whatever there is of good in it
for them. To-day the sharp notes of its
bell brings under discipline many a boy
and girl who is ignorant of the cherished
history of this goodly old building. Two
years later, the Beaver River Gazette was
established ahd published by Dr R. B.
Baker. This was probably the second
paper published in the county, the Argus
having been established in 1818—and at
that period was not, of course, of so pre
tentious an appearance or so well patron
ized, as the valleypapers of to-day. Dr.
Baker was succeeded in the paper by
E. K. Chamberlin, who, after carrying it
on for a while, transferred it to the
Rev. Mr. Winter, who seems to have
published it until 1838, when it came in
to the hands of Judge B. B. Chamberlin,
who carried it on in Pallston during 1838
and 1839 as the Beaver Palls Union
After this it was removed to New Bright
on, which was becoming Ihe prominent
town of the valley. With an academy
and a newspaper, I presume the people
■* felt intellectually and morally safe, and
’'possibly do yet, as in the lapse of years
they have added nothing and lost the
SIGNS OF BUSINESS LIFE.
sln 1035, a saw mill wasjput in opera-
tion by Charles Lukens and L. Townsend,
which was continuously run until 1864.
when it was completely destroyed by
fire and was succeeded by a new one. In
the year 1635, another linseed oil mill
built on, the north end of the race, by
John Pugh & Co., which was run for some
pears and then changed Into a tub 1 manu
In the following year, near the upper
end of the race, there was built a rnsnu
factory for making sash, which was run
lor a time and afterwards used for the
Manufacture of washboards. This indus
try was kept in occasional operation until
‘very lately, but is now Ja thing to be
numbered with the past.
In the same year, upon the site former-
ly occupied by Blanchard as a scythe
manufactory, there was erectedj’a manu
iactory for buckets and tubs,t &c., by
Messrs. Miner & Co., and was! operated
until within a few years, by this and suc
ceeding firms. It is now entirely dis
continued. In the year 1837, Richard
Moreland succeeded D. Townsend in the
manufacture of linseed oil, which be
carried on for some length of lime, fie
built a flouring mill at the lower end of
the race, which was run for several years
by John Edgar, Esq., and was sold by
him to Messrs. Sager & Co., who are now
operating it. Up to this year the only
means of crossing the river between
Fallston and Brighton, was by a rope
ferry, which served the commerce of the
town for many years, but the increase of
business and tbe influx of business men
and their workmen, soon rendered tbe
ferry inadequate to meet tbeir wants.
In 1837, a fine bridge was built between
the two towns by Messrs. Lathrop and
Le Barron, which has done fluty since,
but might be of much greater service to
the people were it free from the toll sys
AN HISTORICAL NOTE.
Id September, 1841, the store of James
Duncan was brought into being, which
soon monopolized the business of Fall*
ston, and contiguous neighborhoods be
came a feature of interest in the place.
We find in “Historical Collections,” a
notice of this village about this period,
that pointedly shows the great amount
of business done in it. “This place is
situated along one or two streets, at the
foot of a high bluff, and is famous for its
manufactures, which consist of woolens,
cottons, papery linseed oil, wire, scythes,
baskets, window sash, ploughs, carpets,
lasts, carding machines, steam engines,
The water power here is immense;
a Wee is permanently constructed, a mile
and a half in Ichgth, which conducts the
water upon which a long row of manu
facturing establishments is. erected.
There is a respectable building of brick
for schools and for public wolship. In
the bill behind the village is an abund
. ance of excellent coal, which may be slid
from the mouth of the pits into the yards
of many of the houses.”
The head of steamboat navigation was
at one time at Fallston, or terminus of
the falls of Beaver. To render this prac
ticable, a dam of fifteen feet was erected
by the State at the month of Beaver, at
which there are locks sufficient to pass
through boats. But this has long been
abandoned, and the only relic of that
time is seen in the canal boats, the “ ; toot”
of whose horns, is a mornful reminder of
the good old days of navigation to the
foot. Of the falls; even the canal boats
have seen their day, and under the fiat of
the great railroads, we will soon be left to
the tender mercy of the -“Iron horse.”
But little progress.has been made in
Fallston, since the time referred to. It
is true that we have manufactories now
in existence that did not then exist, but
they have only taken the place of others.
The manufacturing of oil,cottons, scythes,
tubs, washboards, sash, paper, buckets,
ploughs, carpets, |&c., has now entirely
ceased, some of them for a great many
years. In their stead, we have found
eries, machine works, nail works, handle
works, kegs, extension of wire and
rivet works and of the keg works ; with
There is no cause for gloom or despon
dency on this account, however, as the
industries of the town were never in a
more flourishing condition.
The population of
THE TOWN TO DAT
is about 700 people, mainly connected in
some way or other, with the various
manufactories of the valley. They com
pose a very industrious and well behaved
The situation of the town in its full
length, is a very pretty one. The busi
ness part of it is located at the base of a
hill, sloping very abruptly to the top.
The lower part of the town is on a beau
tiful flat, on the bank of the Beaver, run
ning back several hundred feet, and upon
which there are several very excellent
residences, and room for more- From
this flat a fine view is had of parts of the
Valley, and especially of the more prom
inent parts of New Brighton. An ele-
ganl picture is formed of the pretty resi
dences on the different table lands of
New Brighton, which gradually slope
backward from the railroad to Block
HQuse Ron beyond. No town In the
Valley is more evenly balanced in point
of room for business and residences than
Fallslon. Were all its available manu-
factoring ground used for that purpose,
there would still be ample room for resi-
dences for the proprietors and work
men, and. that, too, but of reach of the
smoke atfd dust. It ought to have a
population of at least 2,000 people, with
their workshops and places of business
right at their doors. The present busi
ness of the place is something as follows:
A good flooring mill located at the end of
the bridge, under the charge of some of
the best flooring men of the Valley. The
foundry of John Thornley, Esq., which
was founded in the year 1836 by Thomas
Thornley & Son, and has been in opera
tion ever since, now employs five bands,
and manufactures the “Great Republic”
stove, various kinds of hollow ware, and
engines. Near to it is the machine shop
of M. Darragh & Co., employing about
%en hands; formerly bad a foundry at
this place, but it was discontinued in (he
A large saw mill, owned by Messrs.
Miner & Co., employs several hands and
does a large and good business. Imme
diately above this is the lead keg factory
of M. T. & S. Kennedy, reference to the
commencement of which has already
been made. They employ twenty hands,
mostly boys, and under the good man
agement of the gentlemen running it, it
has become one of the most beneficial
factories among us. Adjoining the keg
factory is the woolen mill, operated by
Jos. Pontefract, doing a very fair busi
ness, and must increase. The demand
for yarns in the stocking manufactories
in the Valley will give Mr. Pontefract’s
factory a good run. The firm of W. P.
Townsend & Co., now carry on very
large the wire and rivet manufactory,
already mentioned as started by R. Town
send & Co. Messrs. Townsend employ
about twenty-five hands, capable and
efficient workmen, and are putting on
the market a superior quality of wire
and rivets. This wire needs no eulogy
from any quarter, as their work has
spoken for them and given them a fine
reputation. Above this is located the
building formerly used for a washboard
factory and recently purchased by Mr.
Job Fanner as a nail machine shop.
Next in order 1 is Phillip’s Handle Manu
factory, now employing some seven hands
and doing a fine business. This is a com
paratively new business in ; Fallston,
having removed it from New Brighton.
The upper buildings on the race are now
occupied by the Standard Horse Nall
Company, a new manufactory and not
yet fairly got to work. The firm has al
ready been mentioned in the Gazette as
being composed of some of tbe most ac
tive business young men of our valley.
They will make as good nails as any
made in the United States,
ADVANTAGES OF THE PLACE.
Id mentioning the several Industries of
of this town as specifically as I have, *lt
has not been the intention to advertise
the business of any firm, but simply to
show what, can be done and whalt ought
to be done in the town. It is no exag*
geration to say, that in every factory, the
work done cannot be excelled anywhere.
This may sound like boasting, but when
it is known that each firm has an estab
lished name and reputation abroad, as
well as at home, and that each has all the
business it can do and continually has, it
will be seen that their work must be of a
superior character, or they could not
overcome active competition as they do,
in the markets where their wares are
There should be a larger business done
in Fallston than iffTaow done. Rents are
exceedingly cheap, taxes low, fuel plenty,
some water power that might yet' be ob
tained for a good business, and the finest
facilities for the use of steam potter.
The bucket, tub, washboard, paper and
cotton manufacturing, Ought still to be
features in the business of FalUslon.
NEEDS OF VALLBTON. f
The town needs more of thrift and activ
ity among the people than now charac
terizes it. Not that the people are indo
lent. This is by no means the case; but
they are content to sit down, enjoy what
they have, and passively allow other
points to attract their citizens,, and those
desiring a place to invest, from them.
The town would advance mbch more
rapidly and attain great prosperity and
character abroad, as a part of New Brigh
ton, than it possibly can as a separate cor
poration. Let it consolidate with that
town, and both will be greatly advanced
in every point of material progress. That
in the course of time would give a free
bridge and all other blessings that flow
from a union. The beauty of the town
might be very materially enhanced by a
proper use of the natural means within
its immediate reach. There should be a
stop put to the unwise practice of de
nuding the hill sides of the trees that
make it so beautiful from what is natur
ally repulsive, an 3 it is certainly an act
that ought to be reprobated. There is no
prettier scene in the valley than that af
forded by that old hill side in the glory of
its Jane coat of verdure and foliage. To
fell the trees and tear up the grass, will
make the town look as forlorn and
wretched as could well be. There is no
necessity tor it, to carry out the needs of
commerce, as its rugged sides are not
fitted for either homes or business houses.
There is no reason why this favored spot
should not continue to prosper, until its
people rank among the most intelligent,
industrious and happy in our land. At
least so mote it be. Bbavbr.
How to Get Alone*
Don’t stop to tel) stories in business
hours. If you have a place of business*
be found there when wanted.
No mao can get rich by sittiog aroun d
the stores aod saloons.'
Never “fool” in business matters.
Have order, system, regularity and
Do not meddle with business yon know
Do not kick every one in your path.
Pay as you go.
A man of honor respects his word as he
does his bond.
Help others when you can; but never
give what you cannot afford to, simply
because it is fashionable.
Learn to say No. No necessity of
snapping it out dog fashion, but say it
firmly and respectfully.
Proving an Alibi.
The following took place in an attempt
to prove an alibi:
Attorney B.—“ You say that Ellis plow
ed for you on the 29th of November ?”
Witness (referring to bis book.) “Yes,”
8- "What did he do on the 30th?”
W. “He chopped wood.”
8. “On the 31st ?”
W. “That was Sunday, and we went a
8. “What did he do on the 321 ?”
W. “He thrashed wheat that day.”
8. “What did he do on the 33d ?”
W. “It was raining and he shaved out
some ax handles.”
8. “What did he do on the 34th ?”
W. “He chopped wood.”
8. “What did he do on the—”
But before the question could be finish
ed, the witness’s wife seized him by the
collar and whisked him outside of the wit
ness box, yelling in his affrighted ear,
“You old foil I don’t you know that there
are only 31 days in the month of Novem
One of the baggage-masters of a station
between Worcester and Boston is a fat,
good-natured, droll fellow, whose jokes
have become quite popular on the road.
His name is Bill. A short time since,
while in the performance of his duties in
checking baggage, an ugly Scotch terrier
got in his way, and he gave him a smart 1 !
Aick which sent him over the track yel-i
ling. The owner of the dog soon appear*'
ed high dudgeon, wanting to know who
kicked the dog. I
“Was that your dog ?” asked Bill, witll
bis usual draw).
“Certainly it was ; what right had youi
to kick him?”
“He’s mad,” said BAIT j
“No, he's not mad, either,” said thl
owner. 5 1
“Well, I should be if anybody kickefl
me in that may,” responded Bill. /
