Born in Pike County, Illinois, Matthews went to the public schools. He went to McKendree College and Illinois College.



In 1857, Matthew was admitted to the Illinois bar. During the American Civil War, Matthew served in the 99th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment. He then practiced law in Pittsfield, Illinois. Matthews was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives and served as the speaker. Matthews was a Republican. He also was appointed Illinois Circuit Court judge in 1885.

In 1893, Matthews wrote a vignette for the World's Fair predicting what life in the U.S. would be like 100 years in the future.[1] His predictions were grandiose, predicting the U.S. having 60 states and controlling all of North America.
