George W. Hill, of this town, commenced his business life as an apprentice in the office of the New Hampshire Patriot, at Concord, in 1816, remaining there until he became of age. He then went to Montpelier, and, in 1826, started The Patriot and State Gazette. He continued in the management of the concern until the anti-masonic days of 1836-’38, when the paper came under the control of Clark & Marston, and he removed to Lowell, Orleans county, where he entered the custom house, remaining two years, then came to this town, where he has since resided.
