Calvin WHITNEY was born in Westminster and resides on the old homestead selected by his grandfather, Capt. Nathan. when the place was known as "Narragan- sett No. 2." In the kitchen in the old house is his grandfather's commission as cap- tain in the King's Guards. He has numerous other relics of Revolutionary times, including portraits of Capt. Nathan and his wife painted by a Capt. Dommos, a Hes- sian prisoner whom they were keeping with others taken by our soldiers from the British. In early life he was engaged in getting our chair stock, but afterward devoted himself wholly to the management of his farm. Himself and wife have been deeply interested in questions of moral and social reform, and through them in the more liberal interpretations of Christianity, becoming at length members of the Universalist Church, of which he was for some years dea. Two of their daus. have displayed much talent in certain lines of art, and made a creditable reputation for themselves in putting the same to practical use. Mr. and Mrs. WHITNEY are still living in the enjoyment of a peaceful old age, having celebrated the fiftieth anniver- sary of thier marriage several years since, amid the congratulations and kid wishes of a large circle of relatives and friends.
