"SPRINGPORT – was formed from Scipio and Aurelius, Jan. 30, 1823. It lies upon the E. shore of Cayuga Lake, S.W. of the center of the co. Its surface rises in gradual slopes from the water to the E. border, where it attains an elevation of 400 to 500 ft. Waterlime, plaster, and limestone used for flagging, are quarried along the shore of the lake and in the adjoining ravines. Two immense springs flow from the ground near the village, furnishing a valuable water-power. The soil is a superior quality of sandy and gravelly loam, in some places mixed with clay. The lake is so deep that it rarely freezes, and the warmth of the water essentially moderates the intensity of the frosts of winter. Union Springs (p.v.) is beautifully situated upon Cayuga Lake, S. of the center of the W. border of the town. It contains several manufactories, a private academy, and many fine residences. Pop. 1,118. The first settlement was made in 1800, by Frederick Gearheart, Thos. Thompson, and Jas. Carr. The first church (Cong.) was formed by Rev. Joshua Lane, the first preacher."

Death of a Veteran
David Salisbury, supposed to have been the oldest living member of the G.A.R., died at the home of his only son, George W. Salisbury, No. 8 Steel street, Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock. The claim of the aged veteran seems to have been correct, as no one has disputed it. He was born January 17, 1799 in Ballston Springs, Saratoga county. In September 1862 he enlisted from Aurora in the 160th regiment and went to the front where he made a record in many of the fiercest battles of the rebellion. In July last he joined C. W. Crocker post, G. A. R. - Auburn Journal. The Advertiser begs to correct the Journal as to the place of enlistment, it was at Union Springs where Mr. Salisbury then resided.
