E ditors -According to request, I here-witli send you a few sketches of 'Ellington. As they were written in haste, relate principally to former limes and to the western portion of the town, I hope some inhabitant ofthepl-ice will furnish for your paper a view of the entire Ellington of the present day. A. E. B. Ellington was in its earlier years a part of the town of Windsor, then a parish of East Windsor until niC, when the Lefrisiatiire granted it a separate exisu-nce. The derivation of its name is uncertain ; it had been partially applied to the parish for several years. The settlement of Ellington was commenced in 1720, on the east side of the marsh near the house of Chester Chapman, by John Ellsworth of Wind- Mir. Before his house was built he was killed by the falling of a tree, but his sons continued the enter-prize, and the Ellsworths were, until the final extinction of the name in Ellington, nearly a hundred years afterwards, among the most respecuble cit-iaens of the place. The progress of settlement was EDWARD l». ALL.E-V, M a u u f a c l a r e rm id iti wtsr. AXD rOARKK < ALr AXD KIP BOOTS A N D SHOES, LADIES' AND CHILDREysr S//OE.C, Of all kinds.

Joseph Abbot Si-ttled on a most excellent tract of more than mile square, in the west part of the town. He was eelebrateil for his skill in farming. His equal in that pursuit, upon so extensive a scale, probably las not l>een fotmd in the country. It was main ly by observing Ids success nnd imitating his example that the farmers on the plain diseontinueil their slovenly nnd nnprofit.ible mo<le of tillage. Ambi. tion and emulation were soon followed by prosper In a few years the agricultural features of this part of the town were changed, nnd Ellington be eame the pleasantest landscape, that never fails to xeite the admiration of the stranger, while i erection into a township, giving its inhabitants just s?nse of character and responsibility, the intel li-etual and moral character of the place was great improveil.

Perhaps very few persons whose lives were protracted until old age, so i marUably escaped the ill will of their fellow men Mr. Brockway. E%-en the most worthless delight ed to speak ofhim with high esteem and venera tion. Possessing the kindest feelings of nature and having in his own family an unusual amount of affliction in the form of disease nnd death, he knew how to sympathize with tliose who were called to mourn. He had the rare possession of the qualities that rendered his presence equally agreeable at a wedding and at a funeral ; he was * t h e r e f o r e often invited out of his precincts to offi-ciate at them. Kindness to the poor, gentleness to the yonne, and equal affability to all, were marked features in his character. in tberi^rrh, aod an exemplary one.

In after life Mr. Porter was a respecuble physician of East Windsor. Soon after the return of the company, Capt. Fitch resigned, and Sergeant Wadsworth having seen much aervice in the war of 1775, and whose superiority had been known to his comrads, was forwarded over the heads of his seniors to the command of the company, where be remained un. til after the war, during which he was on several terms of duty as a captain. No officers were commissioned from Ellington into the Continental army unless Dr. Demple B. W ads worth as a surgeon was an exception. About the close of the war, Col. Levi Wells, a gentleman of high standing, moved into the town from Colchester. In 1776, Col. Welb, then a Major, was captured in the battle of Long Island and underwent a painful captivity. His sufferings with those of other captnred officers are mentioned by Col. Ethan -\llcn in his account of the crualtics perpetrated by the British upon American prisoners. Afterwards while in command of a regiment of State troops. Col. Wells was surprised in the night and again made prisoner. On this occasion John Lathrop of Tolland was kiUed, aud Lemuel ITi-f of Vernon badly wounded. In 1777 a party embarked from the Aast of Connecticut in an open boat—proceeded to New York where, in open day, they surprised and captured an English armed merchant ship and brought it into the sound without their character having been discoveretl by the surrounding enemy. But the same night, in a violent thunder-gust, they were wrecked on Long Island. A British station was nigh, and all onboard having reached the shore the Americans were the next evening, with one exception, captured by tlie enemy and carried to liarn ; but though the flax was repeatedly p ie rc ^ ' ith the bayonets of his pursuers, and run them down between the flax and the side of the building, he was not found. Remaining until the next ight Mr. Burroughs then left his covert—skulked to the shore until he ibund a boat which he siexed, and thus escajicd to the mtyn land after a short but thrilling perioil of hazard, anxiety nnd suffering. Mr. B. afterwards bee.-une a notorious coiner and counterfeiter, worthy of his New Hampshire name sake, and some of his escapes from justice were as narrow as the one above related. Towards the close of the war several persons emigrated from Ellington to the new settlement of Royalton, Vermont, which in October 17S0 was surprised at day break by a party of Indians from Canada, led by a British officer. Joseph Knee-land, Thomas Pember, and Giles Gibbs, Jr., young men from Ellington were killed—several men from Ellington with others were carried into captivity, and the town was destroyed. Zadoc Steele, from Ellington was uken on their retreat by the s ^ e party. Eventually the captives were placed in a depot for prisoners, situated on an island, in the rapids of St. Lawrance above Montreal, from which a number of them, after a long and cruel confinement, succeeded in making their escape. The prisoners dug a passage under the walls of the prison building and the pickets with which it was surrounded, yet so deep as to pass under the ditch A party consisting of four, including Zadoc Steele and Simon Belknap, Jr., having gained the outside, eluded the sentinels, hastily threw some logs together for a raft, and on such a vessel, in a dark night, committed themselves to the rapids. They sueeeiled in landing on the norCA side of the river and after various adventures in an enemy’s country, and a pathless wilderness—half starved and P tB L IC ACTS. ^ CBiPTXA XUf.
