Jool Honaellt the well kaown publisher and prln- 
i at Albany on Thursday in his seventy-sec- 
ond year. Mr. Dfunsell wuh born In Northuchl, 
llaaa., m i KM), end hia youth was spent in that and 
neighboring towns, llo was apprenticed to the 
printing trade In Greenfield, Mass., and worked there 
until about eighteen years of ago, when he went to 
Albany. After Borving as a cleric in a bookstore for 
somo time he started Uio Albany AlitarxxJ, 

a semi-monthly paper, ho setting all of the 
ell as editing the paper. In 1834 he bo 
came interested with Mr. II. D. Stonu in the publica- 
tion of th. Microscope, at No. 20 Beaver stroot. The successful, and tho enterprise of the 
publishers was substantially rewarded, and iu 1MJ6 
Mr. Munsell was enabled to open a book and job 
printing office at No. 58 state Btreet. Subsequently 
be purcha8i d the premises, ami had continued there 
uninterruptedly up to thirteen or fourteen years 
ag", when he removed to No. Si! State 
Btreet, where he remained to his death, liis 
first book publication was "Tho Outlines 
o; the History of Printing." In lS.'I'J ho printed a 
work on the conquest of Mexico, winch he prepared 
himself for the types under the fictitious uamo « 
Arthur Prynne. it was under ethis name that 1m* 
. in. ,i an 1 printed the Munsell Almanac. In 184U he 
Started a daily paper in the personal interest ol 
Daniel D. Barnard. Among the editors was Mr, 
Hugh I. Hastings, now of the New York Commer- 
cial Adeertiser. in 1842 Mr. Munsell commenced th« 
publication of a Ladies' Magazine, Mr. Ely Squire* 
being the editor. Next lie printed a book of AnioricaU 
Poetry, compiled by .Mr. Squires. The next venture 
was the publication oi the Northern Star aud Free* 
man's Advocate, in the interests of the Africo-Aineri« 
can race, but it did not meet with success. In 1«43 
he printed a compilation called "Tho Everyday 
History aud Chronology," ana about the 
same tune he Began to publish "Webster's Calendar, 
or the Albany Almanac." 

In lMt the SiiccMtor, a roligiou3 weekly, was 
started, I'r. William B. Spraguo being the editor. 
An odd Fellows ui'^'iu named tho Gaocl was the next 
venture. Mr. Munsell in 1S14 printed "Pulpit 
Sketches, or tho Dreams of a Powholder." His nest 
publications were "Select Stories for Children," a 
volume of hymns and a Book written by William 
Hunt entitled "American Biographical Panorama.* 
The work, however, which gave Mr. Munsell hia 
greatest celebrity was his collection and publication 
of "The Annals of Albany," tho name of which in* 
dicates the scope of tho work. The annals were be- 
gun in 18r>0, and were finished, in ten volumes, ia 
loyy. Iu 18G5 a new historical work in Albany waa 
published, "Collections on the History of Albany 
from Us Discovery to the Present Time," &c. Thia 
work was comprised in an octavo volume of over 
fivo hundred pages, with plates of portraits and 
other illustrations. The volume of 18u.j was followed 
by four others, the last appearing in 1871. Mr. Mun- 
sell also included in his newspaper ventures tho 
publication ot tho State Register and tho Albany 
Statesman. Tho deceased, in the course of his lonff 
and active life, contributed very much to tho litera- 
ture of tho State and aid work enough to amass a 
fortune, but his ventures yielded little or no pecuni- 
ary returns. He had been married twice, and lcavos 
surviving a wile and nine children — three sons and 
six daughters. His life is said to be insured for a 
considerable amount, and his family is thus left pro- 
vided for. It is understood that death was caused 
h '" ralysis of the hoart.

So much desire has been expressed during many years for 
the publication of the record of baptisms, in the Dutch church, 
that an effort has been successfully made* to gratify it, and the 
result is presented in this volume. Not only has every name 
on record in those archives been transcribed, with the dates of 
births, baptisms, marriages, and deaths, as fully as they have 
been entered, but all names and dates that have been found 
in other places, are here grouped with them by families and 
arranged alphabetically, forming an extensive collection of 
genealogical information, pertaining to the ancient inhabitants 
of this city, extending over a period of nearly two centuries. 

Following these is an arrangement of house lots into tables, 
forming a street directory of the city from the year 1650 on- 
ward, with the dates of patents and transfers of city lots, a most 
extraordinary achievement, the result of long and patient 
research by Prof. Jonathan Pearson, of tJnion College. It is 
hardly possible to over estimate the value of these results, or to 
appreciate the labor bestowed upon their discovery and arrange- 
ment. They serve to show the residences of the inhabitants of 
this city, of whom so much has been said in these annals, as 
they were located two centuries ago, and to mark the changes 
of ownership from time to time down to a comparatively recent 

The annals of the two years embraced in that portion termed 
Notes from the Newspapers, show an unusual mortality among 
citizens who occupied eminent positions, or who will be 
remembered for various qualities. Among these may be 
mentioned, Gen. Stephen Van Rensselaer, the last of the pa- 
troons ; Dr. Alden March, Prof. Amos Deau, the Rev. William 
James, the Rev. Isaac N. Wyckoff, Richard V. DeWitt, John

Sir. h. 2<>, 1. 14 Amos Dean died, aged 65. Professor Dean 

was well known in the city, and ed and esteemed as thoroughly 

as he was known. He was born in Barnard, Vermont, on the Pith of 
January, 1803. Hetaught schoolat times while pursuinghis acadei 
dies. Hegraduatedat Union College in 1826. lie then, or very soon after, 
came to Albany, and entered upon the study of the law in the office ofhis 
uncle, the late Jabez D. Hammond, who was then in partnership with Judge 
Alfred Conkling. He was admitted to practice at the May term of the 
supreme coun i.. 1829, and , c iuce then had been assiduously and earnestly 
engaged in his profession. For several years and during the 
period of his practice, he was associated with Azor Taber, then recog- 
nized as one of our most eminent lawyers. The firm possessed an exten- 
sive practice, and attained an honorable fame. Professor Dean never 
assumed to attain celebrity as an advocate before juries. While he pos- 
sessed marked abilities as an orator, which could have been educated to 
an eminent order by practice, his instincts and tastes led him to another 
field of industry in his profession. His amiability of disposition, his 
natural reserve, his kindly nature, his guilelessness, and his overfi jwing 
charity, repelled hhn from the theatre of professional strife and conflict. 
He was peculiarly adapted to the duties of the office and the counsel 
room. Here be became eminent for wisdom, prudence and sagacity, and 
these qualities added to that higher and nobler one of an impeachable 
integrity, brought to him clients, success and fame. Professor Dean 
was a scholar. He was such by education, sfudy aud taste. This led 
him to appreciate the benefits of, and to aid in the advancement of popu- 
lar education. Impressed with such purposes, he in very early manhood 
conceived the plan of establishing associations for the mental in

nient of young men. In 1833 he gathered ahout him a few young friends 
of kindred tastes in an office in the city, and there planted the germ of 
the Albany Young .Men's Association, from which has grown the hun- 
dreds of kindred institutions that have since blessed the country by their 
beneficent influence ie organization of the Association, Mr. Dean 

was by common and intuitive choice selected as its first president. By 
the energy and sagacity of his administration the foundation was laid for 
the erection of that noble edifice of popular education, from which for 
sars so much intellectual and moral light has been shed upon 
the youth of our city, and which has been adopted as the model for so 
many like structures in all sections of the union. In 1838 he was 
ted with Doctors March and Armsby iu establishing the Albany 
Medical College, and from that time to 1859 held in it the position of 
professor of medical jurisprudence. When the law department of 
our University was established, Mr. Dean was wisely and appropriately 
chosen as one of its professors, [n this sphere, so well adapted to his 
tastes, his* talents and virtues shone most brightly. His pupils, scattered 
over all the land, will bear testimony to the value of his instruction. 
Professor Dean has attained some eminence in the field of authorship and 
literature. In early life he delivered a series of able and interesting Lec- 
tures on Phrenology, a science then in the embryo of infancy, and which 
lectures were subsequently embodied in a book. He was the author at 
an early age of a Manual of Lav:, which proved to be a valuable aid to 
men. He was. Lines, the author of several able and 

valuable ad-' lectures upon subjects of public interest. In 

1833, he delivered the annual address before the Albany Institute on the 
Philosophy of History. He delivered several lectures before the Young 

Lssoeiation during the first two years of its existence. He deli- 
vered an eulogy up b of Jesse Buel before the State Agricul- 
tural Society, and an annual ad 'e the senate of Union College. 
But his greatest achievement in the walks of literature has not yet been 
giveD to the world. For several years past he has been employed in writ- 
He had manuscript sufficient to constitute 
several volumes, and had been looking forward hopefullly to the day when 
his work should have reached its consummation. 1 His industry, research 
and ability, gave assurance of the merit and attraction of the work. 
We have spoken of the deceased only as a professional and public man. 

seek to add panegyrics to his memory, we should speak of his 
qualities as a man and of his virtues in his private life. Herein, if possi- 
ble, his character was higher and nobler than in any other walk of life. 
To a thorough scholarship, solid intellect, practical wisdom, and sharp- 
sighted sagacity he united a pleasing address, a quiet demeanor, a gene- 

if sentiment, and an absence of guile that endeared him most 
strongly to all who fell within the circle of his companionship. His 
death leaves a void which will be keenly appreciated and deeply mourned 
by our citizens, and by all who knew him. — Evening Journal Fer-

did, into the new states and territories of the west. He was called on 
once or twice a year to visit the customers of the concern in the w 
settle accounts, involving thousands of dollars. His adventures and hair- 
breadth escapes in the western country in pursuit of absconding traders, 
would have made a volume of rare interest. He became a member of the 
firm of Corning & Co., over twenty years ago. and was connected with the 
establishment up to the time of its dissolution, a few years since, when he

merchant. We had known him as a boy and man ; in all relations of life. 
He was open, frank and generous to a fault. He had a heart that charity 
never appealed to in vain. His purse was always open. No man of his 
means ever contributed more liberally to the poor than Gilbert C. David- 
son. He was a devoted friend, and loved his friend with his whole heart 
and soul. He was foremost in every enterprise calculated to advance the 
interest of Albany. His residence was the home of hospitality. He enter- 
tained more magnificently than any other gentleman at the capital. How 
many hearts that have been made glad under his roof will weep for his 
departure; many an eye unused to tears will drop one at his loss. Peace

fifty years was surveyor general of this state ; and was many 
jo a man of great wealth. His generosity to others, to all, how- 
ever, cost him the major portion of it. He built the greater portion of 
the Ithaca and Oswego rail road, and was engaged in other public enter- 
prises in days agone. Mr. De Witt, was a brigadier general of the state 
militia many years ago. Of late years he has been employed as a pro- 
curer of patents and as insurance agent. He was possessed of fine archi- 
tectural taste; and was a promineut member of the Albany Institute.

But it is not of these that we now seek to refer to. We have

possessor of a \ ble portion of the village

of exact sciences. The designs and plans of buiidiugs he has left behind

miliarity with the principles of architecture, while his sketches 
and paintings in water color and oil are spirited and true to nature. He 
was a patron of the old Albanj Library and one of the founders of the 
Albany Institute. He established and maintained a line of steam b 

lyuga lake, which were in their day considered to be models of 
speed, comfort and safety. Through his exertions, and chiefly with his 
the Ithaca & Oswego rail road was constri: if the earliest 

lines in this state), and when the financial disasters of 1837 occurred, he 
lost his property by the forced sale of this road for a trifling part of its 
cost. Not i ud he suffered the loss of his beloved wife (a 

daughter of the late Dudley Walsh), a lady of great worth and very 
attractive in person, mind and manner. He was vice president, and during 
the absence of Governor Fish in Europe acting president of the state Cin- 
cinnati Society. Many New Yorkers will remember with pleasure the din- 
ner of tl Everett House, at which he presided, an 
the late Senator Crittenden of Kentucky spoke so eloquently. He in connec- 
tion with the late Mr. W. C. Miller, established the first of the Sunday 
schools in Albany, and through life and in every way exhibited adeep inter- 
est in their success. He was for many years an elder i i , Dutch 
Church, and was ever active in good works and zealous in the promotion

There arc associations connected with this old church that will never be 
i by tho-;e who have worshiped within its walls. Here the Rev. 
Dr. Nott, about the commencement of the present century, then in the 
dawn of that, fame which afterward gave the widest celebrity as a pulpit 
orator, preached to crow led and delighted audiences. Her*e he pronounced 
that remarkable discourse against duelling, called out by the death 
of Alexander Hamilton at the ham!- ':, passages of 

which are still cited in the school books as ami -st specimens 

of American oratory. Or. Nott became pastor of thit, church towards 
the close of the last century, and remained in charge until he was called 
to the presidency of Union College in 1804, a position which he filled 
with distinguished success for the unexampled period of about sixty years. 
Other remarkable j ire filled this pulpit, including the Rev. Dr. 

until the removal of his congregation to the 
new church, built by his efforts, at the corner of Philip and Hudson 
streets. Dr. Campbell was one of the most celebrated and able of the 
many able divines of Albany. His sermons gave evidence of a keen and 
cultivated intellect; and if all that he delivered withiu the walls of that 
church could be gathered and published, they would constitute mauy 
volumes of discourses, characterized at once by great intellectual power, and 
by the most polished diction. Such associations will be cherished by the 
numerou that have worshiped here, long after its walls 

have disappeared. The old church gives way to the demands of trade. 
This has long driven most of its members to other parts of the city, and 
now the site has become one of the most valuable in the city for com- 
mercial purposes. The preset; ion will hold service hereafter 
in Association Hall until the completion of their new edifice on Eagle 

street. — Paper The temperature changed from extreme cold to

Tweddle, Jr., died at Bergen, N. J. John Gardner died, aged 84. The 
following account of him was written by General John Meredith Bead, 
Jr.. lor the Evening Journal. Few residents of Albany had more 
friends or a wider circle of acquaintance than old Gardner. He was 
one of the few remaining specimens of the thoroughly trained, ancient 
family servants Always efficient, honest and truly courteous, he of- 
fered an example which was not without its influence in this community. 
We have learned many lessons of true politeness from this good old man. 
The Bible dignifies the calling of a servant, while it inculcates humility 
and strict obedience to superiors. Gardner approached more nearly the 
requirements of the New Testament in this respect than almost any other 
we ever knew. He performed what are commonly considered unusual 
duties with an air of refinement which spoke volumes for his real gentility of 
mind and heart. Wbo, that has seen him of late years toiling up and down 
our steep streets, can ever forget the amiable smile, the deferential greeting, 
the raised hat, with which he saluted each passing acquaintance? Under 
the most trying circumstances, even when pain racked every nerve, his 
natural politeness asserted itself, and haloed his intercourse with all. 
Over the grave of such a man we may indeed shed mingled tears of joy 
and regret of joy, that he is released from all earthly suffering; of regret, 
that we have lost a gentle, genial and unselfish friend. To his memory 
we pay our tribute of respect, and to those who knew his worth we offer 
the following slight sketch of his life : John Gardner was born about 
D Colonel John Walker's plantation, called Belle Beau, six miles 
from Milton county. Virginia. His father was a captain in th'e royal 
British army, and his mother was for mauy years the trusted housekeeper 
at Belle Beau. Colonel Walker's wife was a Miss Custer, and their 
daughter married Mr. Cleland Kinlaw. of South Carolina. The grand- 
daughter. Miss Kinlaw, married Judge Hugh Nelson, son of Mrs. Nelson, 
of Yorktown, whose fine mansion sheltered many of our wounded men 
during the late rebellion. Colonel Walker kept many house servants, and 
owned several hundred slaves. On one occasion Gardner said to the 
writer, " When T was a little tyke, sir, I was an outrider. I wore a little 
red suit, with gilt bell buttons and top boots, and I rode in front of Colo- 
nel Walker's carriage, to open the gates, and tend to the ladies' calls. 
Sir, Colonel Walker's house was a very fine one, sir. It had great 
pillars in front, and wings like the Manor house. The floors were washed 
twice a day. Every morning in the right season, sir, Colonel Walker 
would come out into the grounds dressed in a large flannel dressing gown, 
and call for me. And I would run by hi. isket and pick 

enough mushrooms for breakfast, sir. Colonel Walker had a church of

his own, sir, on his place, and Parson Murray preached in it. Some years 
ago, Mr. Frank Walker, sir, came to Saratoga Springs, and his waiter 
stopped here to see me. I remembered him, sir, for he used to live with 
Mr. Frank Tipball ; but I 'spect they're all gone now, sir. While I lived 
with Colonel Walker, I frequently saw Mr. John Peyton. He was a 
stout, fine looking gentleman. I often went over to Monticello, Mr. 
Thomas Jefferson's place, on the top of the high hill. You have been 
there within a few years, sir ; and you remember, in the hall, the bust 
of some famous Frenchman, I've forgotten his outlandish name, sir, 
[Voltaire]. Mr. Jefferson was a tall, thin man. Mr. Thomas Randolph 
was often there. He was tall and slim, too. His place was called Shad- 
well. Peter Hammond, a slave, a club footed man, was Mr. Jefferson's 
cook. His head waiter was named . Burrill. The kitchens, you know, 
sir, were built partly under ground, and connected with the main build- 
ing by long passage ways. If you stood at one end, it was like looking . 
through a spy-glass, sir, to see the sun rise. Mr. Jefferson had glasses 
of all sizes, sir, arranged at different heights, so that he could sit on his 
piazza, sir, and look all over the country. He was a very kind man, sir, 
was Mr. Jefferson. He once found me asleep near his house, and he 
waked me up quite gently like, sir, and sent me home to Colonel John 
Walker's with a pocket full of cherries." We cannot do better than let 
Gardner tell his story throughout in his own words. " Colonel Walker 
bound me out to Wort Baker to learn the trade of a shoemaker, sir; but 
Baker turned out to be a drunkard, and he finally took me to the court 
house at Winchester and gave up to me my articles of indenture, although 
I had still several years to serve. I then went for a while to work for one 
Brady, a shoemaker j but I soon left him and engaged as driver to Judge 
Hugh Holmes, whose house, and office and other buildings were built of 
limestone, and occupied a whole square, sir, in the town of Winchester, 
Virginia. He was a very nice gentleman, sir; and I used to accompany 
him on the circuit. He was a great favorite in that section of country. 
We used to go to Culpepper, Rockingham, and so on, sir. I remember 
Mr. Monroe, sir. He was not a very large man. Mr. Madison though, 
sir, was pretty lusty. I stayed a week at his place, sir, when I was in 
Judge Holmes's service. I recollect well Judge Lee, of Winchester. He 
was tall and slim, and very good looking ; and very much of a gentleman, 
sir. I drove Judge Holmes on one occasion to Mount Vernon, to attend 
a barbecue. You have seen such things, sir, in your time. And you 
remember that the meat is put in, and the trees are cut down and driven 
in around the fire in a circle ; and a great dance is got up about it. Gene- 
ral Washington was dead at the time I visited Mont Vernon. The stables 
were back of the house, and there were chains about the gap in the court 
yard. After I left Judge Holmes. I lived awhile with Mr. McGuire, 
who kept a very stylish boarding house, from thence I went by stage to 
Fredericktown. There General Peter Gansevoort saw me, and engaged 
me as his body servant. He was then attending the trial of General 
Wilkinson. I came north with him to Albany, and lived with him till 
he died, about the year 1818. He died in a house where the Delavan 
House now is. He was a very nice gentleman, sir. I remember I led 
the geueral's horse in the funeral procession, which was a very grand 
affair, sir. I next lived with Chancellor John Lansing till his death.

71. He had heen confined to his house during most of the past twelve 
. by a very painful disease, from which he suffered intensely ( 
but he exhibited, through all his sufferings, the utmost patience, and the 
most cheerful submission to the divine will. He realized during his ill- 
his own personal experience, the comforting influence of the truths 
which he had so long preached to others. And all who visited him, while 
he could give expression to his faith and hope, felt envelope*! 
heavenly atmosphere, receiving comfort and strength themselves rather 
than imparting it to their suffering friend. His sick chamber was a per- 
petual bethel, and his last days were full of peace. Mr. James was born 
in this city in June, 1797. From his early boyhood, he had a love for 
books, and the opportunity was given him to gratify his tastes. He passed 
through all the grades of study, and about his 25th year, entered upon 
the work of the ministry. His first city pastorate was in Rochester, as 
early as 1825, with the Second Presbyterian Church, and he continued 
that connection until 1830 or 1831. Returning to his native city, he 
assumed the pastorate of the Third Presbyterian Church in Montgomery 
street He, however, very soon gave up his position, and from that time 
onward, he has preached wherever providence seemed to indicate, and always 
acceptably, and with great ability. Although never a popular preacher, 
very few men of his day wrote with greater clearness, force or beauty. 
The publication of his sermons would be a rich legacy to the churches. 
But Mr. James was not merely a preacher of the word. We have never 
known a more thoroughly unostentatious, single hearted or noble minded 
Christian gentleman ; and he was enabled, from the moderate income at 
his command, to gratify his benevolent predilections. Thousands of poor 
men, women and children live to bless his memory. Mr James was the 
second of the several sons of the late William James who was for years 
one of the most successful of the many successful merchants of this city, 
during the close of the last and the opening of the present century. He 
was, in every sense, a good man : and his death will be widely mourned, 
for two generations loved him — Jom

Several ^mansions preserving the peculiar architecture of Hollaud, instead 
of being preserved, as they would have been in any city with sense, taste, 
or ancestral pride, were relentlessly demolished. Nor does indulgence in 
vandalism content them. They not only obliterate ancient monuments, 
but reject time honored names. There has been a long line of Van 
Schaiks in Albany, reaching back to its origin, after whom a street was 
named, but which, for what reason we are unable even to conjecture, has 
been changed ! Why is it that the Albany of to-day is so anxious to 
efface the antiquities, destroy the landmarks, weaken the associations, and 
wipe out the memories of the pa I -ere anything in the characters

his early manhood. He had " followed the water " from his youth up, 
and was one of the most energetic and successful of the many prominent 
sloop captains on the North river, long before steam navigation was known 
or dreamed of. Having accumulated a moderate competency, he retired 
from active business many years ago, and has since lived to do good. In 
this, as in all else, his life has been a memorable success. Deacon Adams, 
through the entire of his long life, was a zealous and devoted Christian, 
decided, but gentle, humble and devout. He was one of the few who 
constituted the original membership of the First Baptist church in this city, 
when it met in the building on the corner of Orange and Pearl streets. 
From that day to the day of his death, he followed his master with loving 
devotion, and held every personal interest subordinate to his religious du- 
ties. Until within a few months he was enabled to continue his daily 
exercise, and to receive the congratulations of his friends. But he " longed 
to depart," and this longing had grown upon him since, a few years ago, 
his venerable wife and beloved daughter passed to their rest. He has now 
gone down to his grave " like a shock of corn fully ripe;" but the recollec- 
tion of his earnest and devoted Christian life will continue, as a delightful 
memory, with all who knew him. — Journal. Joshua Cleary died, aged

In the death of General John S. Van Rensselaer. Albany loses a citizen 
who has been | - in its society during a long life-time — a repre- 

sentative of one of the old Dutch families that founded our city and 

bher, Kiilian K. Van Rensselaer, represented this county for five 
• e terms in the house of representatives. Three of his uncles 
served in the Revolutionary war. Nicholas Van Rensselaer was an aid to 
Hchuyler, Philip was quartermaster, and Henry K., colonel. Gen. 
deceased, though a young man. not yet of age. served in the 
war of 1812 as aid on the staff of Gen. Brown, and rendered some valu- 
able services. His identification with this period of our national history 
made him in later years the representative and champion of the surviving 
veterans when their chums for services came before the country. He was 
military secretary and confidential aid of Gov. De Witt Clinton during 
his administration. He was educated to the bar, and was appointed judge 
of the county, but he did not closely pursue the profession of the law. 
For a while he edited the Albany Daily Advertiser, an influential paper; 
and took a prominent part in the political struggles of the day. But he 
er led by party attachment to forget his obligations to the country. 
He was a warm-hearted patriot, and loved the constitution and govern- 
ment of his fathers, and dreaded the perils to which they were exposed, 
and allied himself to those who defended them. He was a public-spirited 
citizen, and warmly identified himself with whatever would add to 
the fame or progress of Albany. He had in his composition none of the ' 
. which is supposed to characterize the people of Holland; but 
was remarkable for vivacity of expression and manner, and a generous 
impulsiveness. His well-stored mind, and his wide communion with men 
aud active participation in events, made his conversation as instructive as 
agreeable. And he retained to the close of his life the animation, and 

joyous and gallant spirit of his youth. — Argus William V. Hackett

were elected : 

St. Paul's Church. The following were reelected without a dissenting 
voice: Wardens — C. W. Bender, John H. Van Antwerp. Vestrymen — 
William H. Rice, James H. Osborn, Ira Porter, Thomas Squires, William 
Lacy, J. Woodward, Jr., F. W. Flagler, Hiram Perry.

and Jas. Ball. Vestrymen — George Cummings, R. J. Story, John 
Pritchard, Wm. Granger, Wm. Little, John Sheridan, J. V. L. Pruyn 
and Evan James. 

The high church ticket admitted men of both parties, in the spirit of 
liberality j the low church did not. The former contended that the choral 
service being outside of the regular services of the church ; the weekly 
administration of the communion, and the daily morning evening prayers, 
need not be attended by those who had no taste for them ; but the rector 
had introduced an invocation in turning his face to the east at certain 
parts of the service, and took a position at the altar different to that of 
his predecessors, which was offensive to a portion of the brethreu; where- 
upon they resolved to oust the old officers that sanctioned it. There being 

a tie of three vestrymen, a new election became necessary. — Journal

Edwards, from his former professional position and connection, was widely

Saratoga county, but came to this city more than half a century ago, and 
commenced the study of the law in the office of his uncle, the Hon. 
Alfred Foot, then one of the most eminent members of the bar of this 
city. Soon after his admission to the bar, Mr. Edwards entered into part- 
nership with his uncle, and they continued together with a large and 
lucrative practice for some years, when Judge Foot removed to New York, 
leaving his large business here to Mr. Edwards. After continuing alone 
fur a few years, he formed a partnership with the late Samuel Stevens, 
then and up to the time of his death, one of the ablest lawyers in this 
state. Their business was among the largest and most important of any 
in this part of the country, and Mr. Edwards brought to it admirable 
qualifications. He was always distinguished for his sound practical judg- 
ment, his solid legal attainments, his promptness and accuracy in business, 
the energy, firmness and integrity of his character, and his conscientious 
fidelity to the interest of his clients. His business was of a weighty and 
responsible character, and among his clients and friends he always num- 
bered the most substantial men in this community. He was a man of 
great kind-heartedness, true in his friendships, warm and generous in his 
sympathies, ever open to the appeals of the poor and suffering, and ever seek- 
ing to rule his life in accordance with Christian principle. He was a liberal 
minded and public spirited citizen, and took a warm interest in all measures 
for the promotion of public interests. Up to the time he was taken ill, he 
had every appearance that would have indicated a prolonged and vigorous 
old age ; and while we now feel that his course in life has been wel' and 
My fulfilled, the suddenness of. its close cannot but remind those 
of us, who have journeyed with him, how frail and uncertain our own 

condition is. — Argus The Presbyterian assembly met in Dr.

25. Stephen Van Rensselaer, the last patroon of Albany, died, aged 80. 
tth was the result of the infirmities of age, and had been antici-

of Stephen Van Rensselaer (known as the Old Patroon), by his first

laerwyok was rented. This manor extended twenty-four mile.- a) 

a river, and twenty-four miles east and west. The deceased suc- 
1 to the western half of tht manor, the eastern half being left to 

, P. Van Rensselaer, the first born of the old second 

wife, W Fersey. These lands were nearly all leased 

uuder perpetual least F which were recently purchased by Colonel 

S. Church, of this city. Probably the most valuable of the lands 
not thus encumbered are what is now known as the Lumber district, and 
be near the city. The entail of the manorial property ceased 
with the death of his father. This will now be divided among the child- 
ren, except twenty-five hundred acres between the Troy and Shaker 
roads, north of the Manor House, in which he had a life estate, and 
which now reverts to his half brother, William P. Van Rensselaer. The 
surviving children of tbe deceased are Margaret, wife of Wilmot John- 
son, of New York; Cornelia, wife of Nathaniel Thayer, of New York; 
Catharine, widow of Mr. Berry, of New York ; Justina, widow of Dr. 
Howard Townsend; Harriet, wife of Capt. Crosby, U. S. A., and Eu- 
gene, the only surviving son. The widow of the deceased, who v., 
Bayard, the daughter of a former distinguished merchant of New York, 

rvives him. Gen. Van Rensselaer never sought official honors. 
He lived a quiet and unobtrusive life; but he leaves behind him an en- 
viable reputation for the sterling virtues which distinguished the race 
from which he was descended. The Manor House was always the home 
of an elegant and refined hospitality. He was liberal in his benefactions, 
and dispensed his wealth freely to all charitable objects and to the 
church, of which he was for many years a prominent member. — .. 

Mr. Yau Kensselaer never mingled in the active concerns of public 
business, with the interest that his father had manifested. The only 
public positions held by him were those of an alderman and of major- 
general of this division of the military of the state, for some years previous 
to 1840. In the latter capacity he evinced much adaptability and skill, 
and his activity and zeal are well remembered by his compeers in life. 
His manners were quiet, social and unobtrusive. His friendships warm 
and active. He was liberal, generous and charitable. — Jo>

D summoned from his stewardship upon earth to that sphere above 
where his existence, his labors, aud his enjoyments shall be immortal. 
Though his very gi iars, gave monition of death, the 

event happened with su Id Of late, and till within a few moments 

• of that health that 

lways been blessed with, aud which, by reason of his pursuits and 

! life, he has enjoyed t ( > a degree of fruition beyond most men. 
But of a startling suddenness "the silver chord was loosened," and like 
: of corn fully grown, he was gathered in the granary of eternity. 
The deceased was born in Kiuderhook, but he removed to this city in very 
early lite and has ever since resided here. Unsuited by education or 
icipatioa in the busy turmoil of public life, he devoted him- 
self to the <juiet pursuit of those duties, and sought enjoyment in those 
associations that grow out of the relations of family, the social circle and 
the church. Imbued with the patriotic spirit of the times he united in 

;a)izatiou of the Albany Republican Artillery company, and for 
some time remained an active and earnest member. Since the death of 
Col. Ira Jenkins he has been the sole survivor of its organization, and 
thus his death has severed the last living link that joined that venerable 

on to its founders. In the first Reformed Dutch church he has 
for many years been an attendant and communicant, and was for a period 
one of its elders. In that sphere he publicly exemplified that character 

incere and earnest Christian that adorned his life in all its private 
and household relations. He leaves behind him four children, and seve- 
ral grandchildren of mature years, upon whom the example of his life has 

not been lost. Journal Ed win *F. Quackenboss, formerly of Albany,

which showed that the cost of the enterprise, including lots for church 
and parsonage, the foundation for nave, and the transept complete was 
834,500, on which was an indebtedness of about $3,000, after selling 
their old church. He also stated the object now to be accomplished was 
to raise a subscription of §10,000 by the first week in August, or there- 
abouts, when the trustees would proceed to let a contract for inclosing 
the nave, for the sum of $14,000. The subscriptions during the day 
amounted to near)- This is the last public subscription which 
the trustees will attempt. A moderate and manageable mortgage will 
complete the work. In the evening, the Rev. Robert E. Meredith, of the

he was so happily constituted, as to attract without effort, in seasons of 
fierce political excitement, the most potential among those of antagonistic 
sentiment, and to number among his friends his most bitter politicial 
opponents. A Catholic of the Catholics, his very name a tradition and a 
household word among the people of his faith ; largely identified with 
the early history of the old church in Albany ; an intelligent, conscien- 
tious and faithful believer, he was at the same time the chosen confidant, 
the familiar friend, the trusted, most honored, and reliable adviser of 
many whose peculiar religious bias might have suggested other counsel and 
far different associations. To the young, to the middle-aged, his cotem- 
poraries, and to the old, there was something so genial, so magnetic, and 
so inspiring about Peter Cagger, that the abrupt intelligence of his sudden 
and unlooked-for death will be clothed with additional pain. We might 
detail, if we chose, unnumbered instances of his kindness, his noble chari- 
ties, the beautiful traits and Christian influences, which accompanied him 
through the years which providence has bestowed, and which will live be- 
fore Heaven, and before men perhaps, when the record of the lawyer has 
faded and the memory of the politician is extinct. The poor, the widow, 
the orphan, the unprotected never appealed to him in vain ; the tears of 
his own fatherless and bereaved family, will mingle, as it were, with a tide 
of grief from hidden sources, aud the hearts his own kind heart made 
happy, and the homes his liberality blessed, will keep his memory 

when even the marble has crumbled upon his grave. Mr. Cagger was an 
Albanian by birth. His parents were natives of Ireland, where his father 
uewhat extensively engaged in business. Previous to taking up 
their residence in Albany, the family remained for a brief period in New 
"York city, and the remains of several of them are deposited in the

la in the New York custom house, in which positiou he died. 
]V] r. (.'.!. ■ Maria Maher, daughter of James Maher, well known 

lerable period as State librarian, and in the war of 1812 as the 
gallant captain of the Irish Greens, a military company originating in 
Albany and which tore a prominent part in the famous conflict at Sackett's 
Harbor. A daughter, the sole remaining issue of this marriage, survives 
him. A few years since, Mr. Cagger was united to a sister of the dis- 
shed editor of the Argus. At an early period of life he was placed 
in the then celebrated law office of Pe\ ;mi<is dv. Woodruff. Even as clerk. 
his remarkable administrative capacity began to manifest itself, and the 
efficiency of his labors was occasionally recognized in the most handsome 
mauuer by the distinguished principals of that powerful firm. Mr. Cagger 
afterwards associated himself with Mr. Samuel Stevens, and the firm name 
of Stevens & Cagger became speedily potential in legal circles. After a 
successful practice of some years, Mr. Stevens, a very able man, and the 
peer of renowned lawyers in the legal arena, yielded to excessive labor ; 
and shortly after his decease, a new legal firm, that of Hill, Cagger & 
Porter, was established, which will go down to posterity as one of the most 
remarkable combinations of ability and fitness for the several departments 
of a great law office, ever known iu the aunals of this state. Thu 
intellect of Hill shone in the court of last resort, where his genius corus- 
cated, and in which his profound learning and the unbending in! 
of his character secured that reverence even of the bench ; the command- 
ing eloquence, the penetrating mind, the admirable sagacity of Porter took 
easy precedence of all others at nisi prius ; and the extraordinary adminis- 
trative talent of Cagger, ready at once and at a moment's beck for abstruse 
pleadings, for the minutiae of petty litigation with its inexhaustible fund 
ot device and ingenuity ; intuitively prepared for all combinations, of 
finance, of politics, and at home in important business negotiations, all 
these things combined to make this famous trio so constituted as if every 
requisite and possible demand had been foreseen and provided for. Alas ! 
that time has broken the admirable compact which bound them together, 
and with us, and that the honored and revered survivor, Mr. Porter, will 
,i hear in Europe the sad tidings of our great bereavement. It is 
somewhat remarkable, and the observation will occur spontaneously to 
many, that, while the stern summons of the grave has thus reached one 
of the most prominent and influential leaders of the two great political 
parties, the other is prostrated with a severe illness, which has excited the 
gravest apprehensions of his friends. One in the maturity of life, ripe as 
a sheaf for the sickle, remains ; the other, seemingly with many bright 
years still before him, is taken; and the parallel is more striking, that 
neither have ever held a single political office during a career of unex- 
ampled duration 'of public life. The loss of either must be regarded by 
the entire community as a great public bereavement. — ,7<

life well known to many of our citizens. For many years he held the

could shake. Underlying a blunt exterior of manner, he possessed gene- 
rous impulses, and friendly sympathies. He leaves behind him the record 
of an unsullied integrity as a public officer that may usefully be held up 
as a model for men to study and imitate. — Journal.

education, and adopted the profession of the law. He entered political 
life in the year 1837, being elected a member of the assembly by the 
Whigs, who carried the state that year for the first time. He was a 
prominent member of the assembly. In 1838, he was made by the 
assembly attorney general of the state, filling the office for one year in a 
creditable manner. Having removed to Albany, he was elected to the 
assembly from this city, in the fall of 1842. He was for some time a 
lecturer in a law school in Saratoga, but resigned on leaving the country 
for a while, to recuperate his health. After his return he again took up 
his residence in New York, and was interested, although taking no pro- 
minent part, in the politics of the day. In 1818 he was one of the few 
who opposed the nomination of Gen. Taylor as the whig candidate for 
the presidency, and endeavored to bring forward the name of Hon. Henry 
Clay. After the failure of the effort Mr. Hall supported Van Buren and 
Adams, and this concluded his connection with political affairs. Retir-

25. Charles L. Elliot died, aged 55. He was one of the few great 
and successful men of his profession. All his works were of superior 
excellence, and invariably won the admiration of all lovers of art. He 
had few, if any, superiors in this country. His death therefore, will be 
an irreparable loss to the art world, in which he occupied so prominent 
a place. His artistic hand has portrayed ou cauvas the life-like features 
of many of the great men of our nation. Among whom were the three 
last governors of this state ; Seymour, Morgan and Fenton. The three 
last named now ornament the walls of our common council chamber, and 
never fail to win the admiration of strangers as they gaze upon them. 
Mr. Elliot was unquestionably one of the most successful artists this country 
ever produced. He has established a reputation by his works of art that 
will forever elicit homage from the American people. In his death, 
x\lbany will be a great sufferer. His fame as an artist added to her repu- 
tation. The former will live, but the latter expired with his demise. 

Argus .Mr. Elliot was born on the 12th October, 1812. His birth 

place was in the town of Scipio, Cayuga county. At the early age of 
fourteen he gave precocious evidence of that genius that has since shone 
so brilliant in the world of art. In 1834, he removed to the city of New 
York, and there formally entered upon that profession in which he has 
become so distinguished. Within the last two years he came to this city 
making it his permanent, and as it has proved, his last home. Mr. Elliot 
was a great and eminent portrait'painter. But that characterization does 
not do ample justice to his fame. He was the best artist now living in 
this country. That is the judgment as well of the profession as of the 
public. Iu that one great mferit of the portrait painter, without which 
all others fade in insignificauce, the, truthfulness of the likeness, Mr. 
Elliot was surpassingly great. The face stood out from the canvas in all 
the reality and perfectness of life. The similitude to nature was as perfect 
as a mirror, embodying tone and color, could have made it. Nor did he 
mar the beauty of his picture or do violence to truth by permitting him- 
self to indulge in that license so often practiced of seeking to aid or im- 
prove the portrait by the colors of his brush or the efforts of his fancy. 
He clung to his subject with a fidelity that no motive could shake. And 
hence, when the picture passed from his easel, the spectator or the critic 
was coerced into the judgment that it was faultless. He had been active 
at his labors. He has painted the large number of seven hundred por- 
traits. These embodied those of very many eminent men. Among them 
are those of Governors Seymour, Morgan and Fenton, that grace the gal- 
axy of portraits in our common council chamber. During his residence 
in our city, he has made portraits of Messrs. Corning, Magee, Burden, 
Egberts and Williams, all of which are splendid monuments to his genius. 
In his private life the deceased was greatly esteemed. He attached 
friends to him with the strong cords of sympathy and affection. He was 
reserved in his disposition and was unobstrusive in his manner. He 
sought no ostentation. He made no parade of himself or his works. He 
did not court the applause of the world by those devices that men of

genius, and the country must search earnestly and long to find one that

work was executed by Mr. Finnerty, of Troy. The carpentry work by

Beaver and Daniel streets, was laid at four o'clock, afternoon, with appro- 
priate exercises. Rev. Dr. Palmer, the late pastor, and the Rev. Mr. 
Smart, the present pastor, delivered addresses. The building is to be in 
the Romanesque style, and consist of nave and apse, with tower and 
spire on the northwest corner of the nave. The walls of the basement 
and sub-basement are built of grawacke stone, from the quarries of Sche- 
nectady county. The superstructure and tower are to be built of red 
stock brick, making a fine contrast with the silver gray dressings of 
Lockport lime stone, which is to be used for dressings of doors, windows, 
water-table, striug courses, weatherings, etc., and all the cut stone of the 
structure. This fine church is erected on a most singular lot, triangular 
in shape, bounded by streets of such diverse grades, that the sub-base- 
ment is entered from Daniel street, the basement is approached from 
Beaver street, and the audience room floor from Eagle street. The ac- 
commodation afforded is a sub-basement under the entire building. 
Basement sixteen feet high, divided into lecture room, 33 by 65, infant 
class room, 16 by 33, church parlor, 22 by 44, kitchen, ladies' room, 
closets, etc. The auditorium is 66 feet by 76, and 46 feet high from 
floor to apex of ceiling. The gallery will be three tier of seats deep, and 
extend on three sides of the auditorium, in horse shoe form. The organ

14. Repaving Broadway. — A ballot of property owners on Broadway was 
taken at the Board of Trade rooms with a view of ascertaining their senti- 
ments on the subject of paving Broadway with Nicolson or Belgian pave- 
ment. There was a large attendance, and considerable interest manifested. 
About 163 ballots were cast, and it was intended that each ballot should 
specify the number of feet owned by the voter, the result to be determined 
by the number of feet represented. But this was not done in all cases ; 
some of the ballots not mentioning the number of feet. A few ballots 
were cast in opposition to either. The returns were not in proper shape, 
at the close of the polls, to ascertain the result precisely ; and they were 
handed to the clerk of the common council to be arranged and returned 
to the inspectors of the election, who will certify the returns to the com- 
mon council committee. A majority of votes cast were for the Nicolson; 
but it appeared, as near as could be ascertained, that the greater number 
of feet were in favor of Belgian. The latter stood for Nicolson, 4,252 ft. 

3 in.; for Belgian. 4,587 ft. 7 in. — Journal Mary Hardy, wife of 

Charles L. Meigs, died. Maggie Josephine Farley died, aged 23. 
Albert W. Gates died, aged 57. 

15. Messrs. Cushman and Payne completed their canvass of the 
votes recently cast by the real estate owners on Broadway, relative to 
the mode of repaving of that avenue. The total number of ballots 
cast was one hundred and fifty-seven, of which there were cast eighty- 
one in favor of the Nicolson pavement, representing 4,761.9 feet ; there 
were sixty-nine in favor of Belgian pavement, representing 4,963.3 
feet, and opposing any repavement, seven ballots ; thus leaving a majority 
of five votes in favor of the Nicolson pavement, but a majority of 200.6 
feet in favor of the Belgian pavement. Two-thirds of the owners of pro- 
perty from Hudson street to the South Ferry were in favor of the Belgian 
pavement. Two-thirds of the owners between Hudson street and Clinton 
avenue were in favor of the Nicolson pavement; and two-thirds of the 
owners from Clinton avenue to North Ferry street were in favor of the 

Belgian pavement James Ryan died, aged 42. Estelle Brumaghim

_,■ of Port Hudson. Jn the bloody attack and repulse of the 14th 
of June, 1863, he was conspicuous foi ry with which he led his 

company in the charge, and the cool i< played in extricating them 

from their perilous position after the failure of the attack. Soon after 
the surrender of Port Hudson, he was commissioned second lieutenant in 
the Fourth Engineers, and early in 1864 promoted first lieutenant. 
Here he did good service as an engineer officer, at Camp Parapet and 
ar City, La. After the close of the war, his regiment (now be- 
eome the Seventy-eighth U. S. C. I.), was sent to "Western Louisiana, 
where six months of monotonous garrison life were only enlivened by an 
occasional excursion after guerrillas, cVc. Mustered out in January, 1866, 
he returned to the dear home friends. For a time he seemed in excel- 
lent health, but the climate, the air and the exposures of a southern life 
had undermined his constitution, and he soon began to fail; and at last 
the end came, and another soldier has gone to his rest in the bivouac of 
the grave, only to awake at the Great Reveille. As a soldier, Lieutenant 
Roberts was brave and faithful; as an officer, he was beloved by his com- 
mand and distinguished for his ability; as a friend and comrade, he was 
steadfast and devoted. There seemed to be an influence about him which 
the sternest superior officer could not resist. Fanny J. Martiman died, 
aged 34. 

20. At a meeting of the common council it was resolved to abolish the 
cobble stone pavement in Broadway, and substitute the Nicholson pave- 
ment in part, and in the southern portion of the street which is sub- 
merged in time of freshets, to put down the Belgian pavement. Alder- 
man Cook presented the following: 

Albany, Oct. 19th, 1868. 
To the Honorable the Common Council of the City of Albany. 

The Chairman of the Street Committee of the northern and southern 
sections, respectfully report that they held an election of the property 
owners on Broadway (in compliance with resolution of the Board), and 
the result was 157 votes were cast, representing 9,724 feet front. 81 
voted for Nicholson on 4,761 feet; 69 voted for Belgian on 4,962 feet; 
7 voted against. Nicholson and not for any. From South Ferry to Hud- 
son streets, 28 owners voted for Belgium on 1,372 feet, and 18 owners 
voted for Nicholson on 1,042; from Hudson to Wilson streets, 56 own- 
ers voted for Nicholson on 3,473 feet, and 29 owners voted on 2.579 feet 
for Belgium. From Wilson street to the north city line, the majority 
were in favor of Belgium pavement. In consideration of this result, and 
the unanimous desire to have Broadway repaved at once, would most re- 
spectfully report and ur^e the passage of three laws which have been 
prepared, and which your committee believe will meet the wishes and 
approbation of the citizens as well as the property owners. This will 
give to each pavement a fair chance to test its merits, and enable all to 
judge and decide understanding^ in future. A. Cook. 

Martin Delehanty, Clerk C. C, 

(for Alderman Evans).

and that the subject of the appropriation be laid over till the next meet- 
ing. Alderman' Mulhall replied at length in opposition to the motion, 
and in defence of the action of the committee. Alderman Mulhall then 
withdrew the resolution until the next meeting.

16. Air, h. 36, 1. 29 The new store of Wendell & Roberts, No. 

31 North Pearl street, was opened. The house of which the present 
members are lineal successors, is one of the oldest mercantile establish- 
ments in the city. It dates its genealogy back to the year 1810. Its 
founders then were Robert Shepard and William Boyd, the solid integrity 
of whose character gave an impress to the house that has never been 
effaced. These two gentlemen had been fellow apprentices in the 
jewelery establishment of Isaac Huston, well known in his day and genera- 
tion. The store occupied by this new firm of young men was in the 
building that then stood upon the north-east corner of Broadway and 
Exchange street, and upon a portion of the site subsequently chosen for 
the erection of the Exchange building. In 1839, Mr. Shepard, whose age 
impelled him to retire from the cares of active business, retired from the 
firm, and gave place to John H. Mulford, who had been properly edu- 
cated to the business by the service of an apprenticeship under Joseph T. 
Rice. In 1840, Mr. William Boyd died, and the vacancy thus -created 
was filled in 1842 by the promotion of William Wendell. The latter 
had won his advance by years of faithful service to the former firm 
In 1854 Mr. Mulford voluntarily withdrew from the business, and 
gave place to his nephew, Robert L. Mulford, and Wm. P. Feltman. 
The latter had won the favor of his copartners by years of industry 
as a clerk. In 1862 Mulford retired, and in 1864 Mr. Feltman 
died. Then Richard H. Roberts was advanced, by the order of grada- 
tion so long adopted as the policy of the firm, from a clerkship to a 
partnership. The firm thereby now consists of Mr. Wendell, whose 
connection as stated dates from 1842, and Mr. Roberts. This history 
shows in significant colors the policy that has ever governed the 
firm — that of elevating to partnership those who by industry and 
fidelity as clerks had proven their fitness, and merited the esteem of 
their employers. While this policy has preserved the cohesiveness of 
the firm, it has secured to it a large measure of that public approbation 
that has ever attached to it. And now, in the old days of its existence, 
with elements of youthful vigor, and in a store fashioned after the model 
of modern taste, it not only enjoys the favor that its history so well mer- 
its, but addresses itself with success to that same patronage that a new 
rival might solicit. — Journal ....Mrs. Clarissa Baldwin died, aged 67.

Bott. Hon. Ira Harris, president^?™ tern, of the college, spoke in reply 

ions about the condition of the institution and the probable will- 

3 of the trustees to treat for a removal. He thought if the citizeus 

iny would raise half a million of dollars the trustees would con- 
sider it advantageous to the institution to remove. It was held by the 
speakers that Albany would have a university soon, that all efforts to es- 
tablish one at Schenectady had failed, and that two institutions so near 
each other could not succeed ; and it was evident which would have to 
succumb, as Union had run down in scholarship from 330 to 140. A 
committee was appointed to confer with the trustees on the subject. 

29. The German Catholics laid the corner stone of a new church, to 
be called Holy Queen of Angels, on the corner of Central avenue and 

-trect. A procession was formed at the Cathedral, consisting of the 
prelates of the Catholic church, two brass bands, eight military companies 
and four civic societies. The foundation of the edifice had already been 
laid 150 feet long and 66 wide. The notice published, that the ceremo- 
nies would take place, and be attended with a grand procession, called 
out one of the largest crowds we ever saw on any similar occasion. The 
was cold and disagreeable, yet thousands of people patiently 
waited from about 2 p. M., until the close of the ceremonies, between 5 and 6 
p. M. There could not have been less than six thousand people present 
to witness the exercises attending this imposing event. The pi 
that acted as an escort to the bishop and clergy, from the episcopal 
residence on Madison avenue, to the church site, consisted of Klein's 
and Freberthuyser's bands, eight military companies from the 10th 
and 25th regiments, and four civio socities, the Hibernian, St. Peter's, 
St. Joseph's and St. Francisquis. The bishop and clergy arrived on the 
ground at 4 P. M. and immediately formed into procession for the purpose 
of dedicating the church, blessing the spot on which the altar was to 

•ud lay the corner stone, all of which duties were performed with 
imposing ceremonies. The Right Rev. Bishop Conroy officiated in the 
exercises, assisted by the Very Revs. Father Wadhamsaod Fidelis Dehm, 
Fathers Bayard, Ludden, McGinn, Burk. Doran and Lowcry, of this city, 

'hers Alphonse and Robert, of Utica, and about thirty acolytes. 
At the conclusion of the exercises, the clergy took a position on the plat- 
form arranged for the purpose, from which the Very Rev. Father Wad- 
hams delivered an appropriate address to the occasion in English, and the 

B v. Father Fidelis Dehm in German. Owing to the lat. 
the hour, these were short but very effective. At the close the bishop 
delivered a benediction, and the crowd dispersed. The "new church is 
to be called Holy Queen of Angels, a very pretty title. Its pastor is Father

Locker John Haswell died, at Bethlehem, aged 89. The 

deceased was the eighth son of John Haswell, senior, who migrated from 
Northumberland, England, in 1774, with a family consisting of himself, 
wife and eleven children (seven sons and four daughters), who landed in 
New York, came to Albany in that year, and settled on the Patroon's Manor 
in Bethlehem, six miles south-west of this city, on the farm on which the 
subject of this obituary was born on first of January, 1780, and died aged 
88 years, 10 mouths and 28 days. After -the death of his parents, the 
farm was divided between three of the sons : Edward, John and William. 
The latter is the youngest and the only survivor of fifteen children, 
and is in the 85th year of his age. The title of the farm still remains 
in the family. With the exception of an attack of fever and ague, more 
than half a century ago, the deceased has enjoyed uninterrupted health 
until the 19th instant, when the inexorable messenger entered his sick 
chamber to call him from earth to a better world. He was always an 
active member in society, taking a lively interest in state, town, school 
and church affairs, never failing to attend meetings called to promote 
the interest of either; aud while he was an active politician he was far 
from being a seeker for political favors. He was, however, elected and

Its exterior is novel in outline and finish, and the entire design will bear 
critical examination, and can hardly fail to be admired by architects and

found. Quiet and unassuming, he was respected by all, and looked upon 
as a highly respested citizen. Several years since he left this city and

tion of 1821 ; he was born in Kinderhook, but educated in Albany, 
whither his father removed in 1830. He graduated at Williams College, 
Mass., and soon after commenced the study of the law. The strong 
political convictions of his family, and the influence of his brother-in-law, 
John Van Buren, brought him actively into politics. But though gene- 
rous and enthusiastic, his mild nature and fine instincts forbade him to 
indulge in any of the acerbity of partisanship. While quite a young man

of the militia service of the state was assigned to his department. At the

Orphans Insurance Company in New York since its establishment. He was 
in the full possession of his faculties, and his life which had not been with-

12. Air, h. 30, 1. 25 The Susquehanna rail road was opened, 

throughout its entire length to Binghamton. The project of a rail road 
connecting Albany and Binghamton had been discussed for many years ; 
but it was not until April 19th, 1851, that an organization was effected, 
with Edward C. Delavan as its first president ; and during that year in- 
dividual subscriptions to the stock of the company amounted to one million 
of dollars. In 1852 an act was passed by the le ; slature authorizing the 
city of Albany to loan the road its credit to the amount of one million of 
dollars, and in April of that year its citizens voted to make the loan. In 
the fall of 1853 the entire work was let to Morris, Miller, Baker & Co., 
to be completed at a cost of seven millions of dollars, they agreeing to 
take the individual subscriptions, the city loan and the balance, of their 
pay in the bonds of the company. These contractors worked upon various 
portions of the route until they had expended about fifty thousand dollars, 
when, in the spring of 1854, they were forced, by the Schuyler frauds on 
the New York and New Haven rail road, and the consequent loss of public

confidence in all rail roads, to suspend operations. In 1855. the subject 
of bonding the towns along the route was discussed, and a bill authorizing 
juoh bonds was passed by the assembly that year, but defeated 
by the senate. In 1857 tbe bill passed the legislature and became a law, 
and town subscriptions to the amount of nine hundred thousand dollars 
were obtained by this means. This amount having been exhausted, it 
was resolved tu apply for aid from the state. Arguments were used to the 

bat the portion of country through which the road was to pass had, 
for many years, paid its proportion of taxes for the canals, without de- 
riving a corresponding benefit therefrom ; and that the resultant benefit 
to the state, in the increased valuation of taxable property and increased 
productions, justified the measure upon grounds of public policy. In 
1S59, a bill appropriating $250,000, in aid of that portion of the road 
lying between Albany and Schoharie, passed the legislature, and was 
vetoed by Gov. Morgan. In 1860, a bill appropriating $1,000,000 for 
the whole line of the road, in installments of $250,000 each as the road 
progressed, the last installment to be paid upon its completion, passed the 
legislature and was vetoed by Gov. Morgan. In 1861 a bill, leaving out 
the appropriation for the western half of the road, and appropriating 

100 for the completion of that portion lying between Albany and 
Oneonta, passed the legislature, and was vetoed by Gov. Morgan. In 
1862, this bill again passed the legislature, and was again vetoed by Gov. 
Morgan. In 1863, the same bill passed the legislature, was signed by Gov. 
Seymour, and became a law. This bill provided for an appropriation of 
$250,000 when completed to Cobleskill, and the same amount when com- 
pleted to Oneonta. With the aid thus furnished it was opened for 
transportation to the following points, at the dates named below : to 
Schoharie, 35 miles, September 16, 1863 ; to Cobleskill, 45 miles, 
January 2, 1865; to Kichmondville, 50 miles, June 1, 1865; to Wor- 
cester, 62 miles, July 17, 1865 ; to Schenevus, 67 miles, August 7, 1865 ; 
to Oneonta, 82 miles, August 28, 1865. In 1866, a bill was passed giving 
the road an additional half million of dollars, payable in two equal install- 
ments, upon reaching Harpersville and Binghamton respectively, and 
was vetoed by Gov. Fenton. In 1867, a bill was passed and became a 
law, appropriating $250,000 for that portion of the road from Oneonta to 
Harpersville. With this aid, the building of the road was continued as 
follows: Otego, Otsego county, 90 miles from Albany, Jan. 23, 1866; 
Dnadilla, Otsego county, 99 miles from Albany, March 21, 1866 ; Sidney, 
Delaware county, 103 miles from Albany, Oct 22, 1866 ; Bainbridge, 
Chenango county, 108 miles from Albany, July 10, 1867 ; Afton, Che- 
nango county, 114 miles from Albany, Nov. 11, 1867; Harpersville, 
Broome county, 120 miles from Albany, Dec. 25, 1867. In 1868 a bill 
was passed giving the additional $250,000 to complete the road from 
Harpersville to Binghamton, and was vetoed by Gov. Fenton. A tem- 
porary loan of $550,000 was then effected on the second mortgage bonds 
of the company, which loan matures during the present year. With this 
aid the road was opened to Binghamton, the last rail having been laid 
in December last. The road is now open for business, but it can hardly 
be called completed. Although it is safe in all its parts for present use, 
much . irk remains to be done. The temporary tressle work at 

the western end is to be replaced by permanent embankments, and a large 
amount will be required to complete the arching of the extensive tunnel

in Colesville. The road is 140 mile3 in length, and its total cost up to 
Sept. 30, 1868, was $6,387,455.94. At that date the total amount of 
funded and floating debt was $3,362,000, and its total earnings and ex- 
penses for five years were as follows : 

Sept. 30, 1864, $97,861 07 I Sept. 30, 1867, $484,228 19 

Sept. 30, 1865, 175,729 13 Sept. 30, 1868, 535,822 64 

Sept. 30, 1866, 385,198 86 | 

Five years $1,878,839 89 

Now that the road has formed a through connection with the west by 
means of the New York and Erie rail road, and is about to tap the coal 
regions of Pennsylvania, it may confidently be predicted that its earnings 
will henceforth steadily and rapidly increase, and prove a permanent 
source of revenue, as will the road itself a permanent blessing to the 

locality through which it passes, and to the whole state. — Argus

fice, with faithfulni In 1867 he retired from the 
ship and was succeeded by Rev. Dr. Elmendorf, the present able and 
esteemed pastor of the church. Dr. Wyckoff was one of' the oldest if not 
the oldest clergyman in the city. It was his age, and nothiug else, that 
caused him to retire from service. He was a model minister, working 
for the good of souls. He was able, and eloquent in his day, and 
no man was more revered by his congregation than Dr. Wyckoff. He 
had a smile and kind word for every one, and was indefatigable in his 
exertions in behalf of the poor. — Knickerbocker. The clergyman who 
for a long series of years has taken the direction of the chaplain service 
of the legislature has just ended a life which, so far as human judgment 
may pronounce of any man's career, has been one long existence of kind 
thought and tender word and loving service to his fellow men, rich and 
poor, home born or foreign. II is not true of him that he dies and 
makes no sign. His earnest, truthful eulogy is writing itself in the me- 
mories of those to whom he gave voice and labor that he might make 
their life happier. In many specialties of character, Dr. Wyckoff was a 
very extra irdinary num. With a blending of shrewdness and simplicity 
which did not mar the outline of his career ; with an overflowing appre- 
ciation and love for the beautiful wherever, whenever found, and yet a 
marked deficiency of order in the arrangement of his taste ; with a heart 
that found itself especially near all scenes of grief or joy, but the inter- 
pretation of whose words were often far away in precision of expi 
with a charity that grasped all men, and a fraternal, paternal manner 
that recognized no distinction of coat or gown, or cassock or mitre, fold- 
ing all their wearers to his heart in brotherhood ; with unceasing will 
and wish for the happiness of all humanity, this man lived in every hour 
Christian life. It is not surprising that as he dies all classes of people 
stop to notice it, and, forgetting that they may have differed from him in 
his theology, tell out their belief that one of the really good men of the 
earth has gone to his rest; that at last he has gathered to himself the 
exceeding precious promises whose intensity of value he urged to others. 
Dr. Wyckoff came to Albany in 1836, succeeding the Rev. Dr 
(now chancellor of the New York University) in the ministry of the Re- 
formed Dutch church between Hudson and Beaver streets — a church 
built to consecrate by its uses an ancient burying ground, and whose con- 
struction was regarded by the active men of the time of its building as a 
great good attained. It was formed of the old stones which had been 
brought there, material of the very old structure which occupied the 
lower centre of the present State street. His long ministry in its his- 
tory belongs to the ecclesiastical annals of that prominent and prosperous 
church. He came to its charge when as yet some of its aged members 
were living; those who had endured in the truth till the thoughts and 
words and actions of the gospel became portion of their inner life. The 
biographies of the sainted men and women of that Middle Dutch church 
are, so far as this world's records go, in the quick formed dust of its 
oblivion. Only a few descendants, a few relatives, recollect even their 
names; but by all the memories of the highest, worthiest, wisest religious 
life, of unceasing prayer, of an intelligent religion that anticipated its

glorious destiny — of all these there is written in light in Jerusalem the 
golden. Over such a people and their descendants Dr. Wyekoff labored, 
and forgot no mourner, overlooked no poor. His language was often 
almost eccentric, but the tortuous path of words never forgot its way to 
the celestial city. Especially was he the benefactor of the immigrant 
Hollander. In 1846, a new movement of emigration stirred Holland. 
The Netherlands seemed almost to have forgotten their once cherished 
possessions, and the emigration of 1608 and the years following had be- 
come historical ; but ecclesiastical difficulties set a weaker party in mo- 
tion, and, after they had led the way, others followed. These naturally 
went to such men as Dr. Thomas De Witt (clarum et venerabile nomen) 
and Dr. Wyekoff. These men were like the clergymen they had left in 
the old land, and Dr. Wyekoff was busiest, kindest, most persevering, 
most enduring of men with them. He listened to all their congratula- 
tions or complaints ; talked with them about their old home and their 
new one ; counselled, expostulated, scolded (for some scolding was a 
kindness) ; raised money for them ; looked after their luggage ; attended 
the very dray in its burden of their queer, quaint, conglomerated effects ; 
preached for their cause; listened to their preaching; grieved in their 
Woe ; apologized for their errors ; and entered into all their wants as a 
guardian. The Hollanders in America may well, when they get prosper- 
ous, make enduring monument to this most devoted friend, who devoted 
his time and talent to make them a solid home in the new world. I do 
not believe any man in Albany had more universal respect than Dr. 
Wyekoff possessed, because he had the general confidence. His charity 
was absolutely delightful. His name of brother would be given, and 
really intended, as it was said, as well to the clergy whom Archbishop 
McCloskey governs, as to those with whose faith he had nearer sympathy. 
This man went on in life looking on the world around him as a necessity 
of constant sympathy, because a necessity of constant suffering. In talent 
respectable, in learning sufficient, in theology broad but pure, in labor 
abundant, his life closes as a volume read by duty to its close. I write 
thus the more freely because while he lived it was the common thought 
of his friends that he was eminently a good man. ' His duties as clergy- 
man had yielded their force to the feebleness of age ; but his name does 
not pass from the record of the living without its being realized in a 
truth which if is delightful to recognize, that his name written 
among the first as 

" One who loves his fellow man," 

and that his love went beyond this to the highest. — Wm. H. Bogart in

28. Easter Sunday was the most beautiful day of the spring. Scarcely 
a breath of air was stirring, and the suu shone with almost uninterrupted 
brightness. The attendance at most of the churches was very large. 
The day was celebrated with unusual pomp by all the Catholic and Epis- 
copal churches in this city. At the Cathedral, the church was decorated 
with flowers upon the side altars. The sanctuary and altar were bril- 
liantly lighted, while on the pillars were small shades with appropriate 
inscriptions, such as — " Christ is 'risen from the dead and hath appeared 
to Simon Peter." " This is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice

and be glad therein — Hallelujah." The music was of the grandest 
character. Cherubin's mass for four voices was performed with great 
brilliancy. The imposing services were conducted by the Rt. Rev. 
Bishop Conroy, assisted by a large number of the clergy. The building 
was densely crowded. At St. Joseph's the services were very imposing. 
The service at St. Peter's church yesterday morning was very 
attended. From the opening to the close, the interest of the large num- 
ber of worshipers seemed unabated. The musical portion of the service 
(Mr. Squires, organist) was rendered with great effect. Among the 
most noticeable features, the Easter Hymn, arranged from Lambillotte, 
the Te Peum, with solos by Miss Coyle and Messrs. Whitney and Wood- 
bridge, and the Offertory Anthem, solo by Mrs. J. M. Sayles, with cho- 
rus, were most pleasing. Altogether, this was one of the finest services 
ever given in this ancient church. The floral offerings were elaborate 
and tastefully arranged about the altar, pulpit, etc. The font was filled 
with a superb pyramid of pond lilies, etc., and a profusion of flowers sur- 
rounded the basin. The pulpit font was covered with flowers. The lee- 
tor was similarly decorated ; and a large cross of white and red flowers, 
surmounting a mound of flowers, stood upon the altar. Some idea of 
the magnificence of the display may be gathered from the fact that there 
were seven hundred camelias, besides other rare and beautiful flowers in 
proportion, the generous gift of Erastus Corning, Jr., while there was a 
profusion of equally elegant flowers from the conservatory of G-en. John 
F. Rathbone. We hear that even New York and Philadelphia were held 
under contribution for flowers for this church. It was the most beauti- 
ful floral exhibition ever seen in this city. Kt St. Paul's church an elo- 
quent and instructive sermon was delivered by the rector, Rev. J. L. 
Reese. The church was crowded, and a liberal collection was taken up 
for domestic missions. The music, under direction of Mr. T. Spencer 
Lloyd, organist, assisted by Mr. F. J. Lawrence, Mrs. Hoyt and a full 
choir, was of a very high order. The font was decorated with pond 
lilies and other rare flowers ; a cross of white flowers stood in front 
of, and another large one, mingled with green, over the pulpit. In the 
evening the rite of confirmation was administered by Rt. Rev. Bishop 
Doane, to a number of candidates. The carols were sung by the child- 
ren. But the Catholic and Episcopal churches were not alone in their 
observances of the day. The display of flowers at the Fourth Presbyte- 
rian church, Rev. Dr. Darling's, was surpassed only by that at St. Peter's. 
At the Third Presbyterian church the venerable Dr. Halley preached a 

very eloquent, able and appropriate sermon on the resurrection The 

Rev. William J. Boardman, rector of the Church of the Holy Innocents, 

resigned the rectorate, and preached his farewell sermon this day 

Egbert Egberts, formerly of Albany, died at Cohoes, aged 78. He was 
born at Coeymans, in this county, where his father, Anthony Egberts, 
who was an officer in the revolutionary army, settled at the close of the 
war. In 1812, he engaged in mercantile business in this city, with his 
brother. Cornelius, under the firm name of C & E. Egberts. In 1831, 
he removed to Cohoes, where he first successfully introduced the power 
knitting frame, and established an extensive manufactory. In 1852, he 
retired from active business, with a competency, which he always used in 
the spirit of Christian liberality. In that year he was the candidate of 
the whig party for congress. In 1858, he organized the bank of Cohoes,

and was chosen its president, which office he retained till his death. The 
Egberts Institute received from him an endowment of $20,000, and the 
Keformed Church of Cohoes, of which he was a member, is indebted in 
great measure to his taste and liberality for their beautiful house of wor- 
ship. He was a friend of the poor, and for every good cause had an open 

heart and hand. — Evening Journal Rev. Ambrose M. O'Neil died,

country, was this morning the scene of unusual excitement. For a century, 
and up to within the past two years, the election of wardens and vestry- 
men was a foregone conclusion, and attracted but little, if any, attention. 
But lately, by the infusion of a new element, more spirit has been engen- 
dered, which was exhibited to-day in the election of church wardens and 
vestrymen. The following is the result as published in the Evening

age has borne with it so much of vivacity and the spirit of the youth, that 
their summons seems almost as untimely as though youth itself had 
fallen. We add this morning to the mournful catalogue the name of 
Cyrus Hawley, a name especially familiar to the residents of the western 
portion of our city, but wherever known, regarded with esteem and 
honor. Mr. Hawley was born in Herkimer county, New York, in the 
month of March, 1800. He came to Albany in the year 1814, and was 
employed as a clerk in the produce store of the late Daniel L. Newton. 
He remained with Mr. Newton, who was his brother-in-law, until about 
1821, when he became a dealer ingrains, seeds and country produce, and 
for a short time, about the year 1830, was a partuer of Mr. Newton's. 
Their store was situated on the hill near the Brick point, and was well 
known many years before the Erie canal was completed, and before rail- 
roads were thought of. The Great Western turnpike in those days, and 
until the Erie canal offered greater facilities for transportation, was the 
grand thoroughfare to and from the West. All country produce was 
then brought to the Albany market by teams, and merchandize was car- 
ried to villages aud country stores by wagons or sleighs, even to Rochester, 
which was then the far west. Real estate on Washington street, now 
dignified as Washington avenue, was greatly valued, and at one

went up to almost fabulous prices. The Erie canal, changing the method 
of transportation from land to water, brought down values. In Mr. H.'s 
day as a merchant, his cotemporaries in commercial enterprise were such 
men as William Durant, Clark Durant, Wm. Jones, William Chapman, 
Wm. and John M. Newton, Duncan Robinson, Messrs. McNab, Morgan, 
McEntosh and Cumming, Aaron Roggen, Hubbell Knapp, John Taylor, 
Robert Boyd, Robert Dunlop and Andrew Kirk. From 1832 to 1840 he 
was connected more or less with Mr. Batchelder, in the purchase of flax- 
seed. &c. In the year 1841 he engaged largely in the purchase of wool, 
with Alexander Cumming and Robert Worden. In 1843 he formed a 
general partnership with William Appleton, which continued until 1849, 
when he retired from business with an ample competence. Since the 
period of his retirement from active business, Mr. Hawley has quietly 
and reasonably enjoyed the years allotted to him. He was always fond 
of exercise and intelligent companionship, and during recent years was 
accustomed to make frequent journeys on foot with favorite friends as far 
as Saratoga Springs and back, from Saratoga to Lake George, and from 
G-orham to the summit of Mt. Washington. Though never married, a 
marked trait in Mr. Hawley's character was his peculiar fondness for child- 
ren. They were ever his favorites, and the kind hearted and the pleasant 
old gentleman will be remembered in years to come by many a little 
friend whose childish sorrows he soothed, or to whose innocent happiness 
he contributed. Mr. Hawley wn.s not, we believe, a regular member of 
any church. But in his principles and deportment he exemplified the 
Christian gentleman. In all his relations to society he acquired and 
merited the approbation and respect of his fellow men. In his personal 
habits he was neat and careful without beiug too fastidious. In business 
he was singularly prompt and accurate, and always scrupulously honest. 
He was judicious but liberal in charities, and delighted in those quiet 
kindnesses which exhibit the true hearted gentleman far more than 
ostentatious display. His pathway to the grave was scattered with the 
blessings of the poor whom he relieved. The deceased was a relative of 
ex-Mayor George H. Thatcher, from whose residence the funeral took 
place. — Journal JohnRector died, aged 69.

its provisions the following disposal is made of the estate : to the niece of 
deceased, Catharine Barclay Porter, he bequeathed the sum of $500, and 
an equal amount to his nephew, Sylvanus B. Jermain, 2d. The remainder 
of the property, real and personal, he bequeathed to his son James Barclay 
Jermain, whom he appointed sole executor for the estate. Attached to 
the will was a codicil bearing date January 20, 1856, in which the follow- 
ing additional bequests were made ; to each of his brothers and sisters who 
should be living at the time of his decease, an annuity of $400, to con- 
tinue during the terms of their respective lives. The survivors are Julia 
Ann Prince, Alanson Jermain, Caroline Porter, John Jermain, George 
W. Jermain, and Margaret P. Slocum. To Frances, widow of his late son 
John Jermain, and to Emily, relict of his grandson Sylvanus Jermain, de- 
ceased, a life annuity of $250 each was left, to be annulled, however, in 
case of the parties marrying again. The property was avaluable one, the 
net estate footing up a little over $1,500,000. Seven hundred and fifty 
dollars worth of internal revenue stamps were required for stamping the 
will. Silvanus P. Jermain died, aged 86. He came to this city about 
1800, while a lad, and was one of the first stockholders of the State Bank. 
He was a man of close business habits and of rigid economy ; and by pru- 
dent and slowly gathered gains accumulated a fortune of a million and a 
half of dollars. While his life was devoted to the pursuit of riches, 
and he frankly acknowledged the mastery which this passion had obtained 
over him. he was strictly honest and in all ways free from blame. His 
large fortune was constantly in use, and in active investment, and he was 
little more than treasurer or actuary of the large fund. Riches afforded 
him neither luxury nor leisure; but only a care which absorbed his time 
and most of his thoughts. He was, however, successful in all his under- 
takings, and lived a cheerful, simple and frugal life to a remarkable old 
age.— Argus. The Journal of Commerce says of him : He was a native of 
Sag Harbor,on Long Lshnd,but wentinto businessat Albany in 1802, and 
continued for sixty-seven years an active man of business, having amassed 
a very large fortune, and continuing in attendance at his office until within 
ten days of his decease. A history of his earlier life would form a very 
interesting chapter on our internal commerce and the navigation of the 
Hudson, in which much of his property was invested before the days of 
steamers. His first partner was Capt. Sherman, who became the well 
known pioneer of steam navigation on Lake Champlain. Mr. Jermain was 
distinguished for his steady, upright and invariable business habits, though 
for many years past he has occupied himself with but little othe 
than the management of hjs immense property. He was a communicant 
in the Presbyterian church (now under the care of Dr. Sprague) from its 
organization, more than fifty years ago. Few, if any, inershants now sur- 
vive who remember the commencement of Mr. Jermain's business life, 
but there are many in this city who recall their relations with him in the 
times of the war and the succeeding years, and who will be reminded now 
of the vast changes which have taken place in the whole system of com- 
mercial affairs during the period covered by his long experience

(he fifth anniversary of the rector of St. Paul's church was ob- 
served. The Rev. Mr. Reese, the rector, briefly recapitulated the history 
of the church since he took charge of the parish. During that period 
the number of communicants had increased from one hundred and twenty- 
hundred and twenty, and the collections and contributions 
by the congregation for pew rentals and religious and charitable purposes, 
amounted to nearly 872,000 during the past year. The rector officiated 

en marriages, at twenty deaths, and at upwards of sixty baptisms; 
and the collections reached about 815,000. In the afternoon the anni- 
versary of the Sunday school, which continues to thrive, under the able 
superintendence of William Lacy, Esq., occurred, and the church was 
crowded. There was charming music, the exercises were highly in- 
og, and the floral offerings of the various classes were elegant and 
most liberal. The appeal to the congregation for flowers with which to 
decorate the graves of deceased soldiers to-day was cheerfully responded 
to. The rector stated that the day being a regular communion Sunday, 
the plate collections could not be diverted from their legitimate channel, 
viz : the relief of widows and other poor women belonging to the parish, 
but he had caused boxes to be placed at the doors for contributions with 
which to buy flowers for the soldiers' graves. When the congregation 
retired these boxes were not neglected. — A

16. Volkert P. Douw died, aged 80. His death is to the city a severe 
loss, and creates in the circle of those accustomed to his kindly pre- 
sence, and his judicious counsel, an irreparable void. He leaves to his 
family, and to our city, a princely legacy, in the memory and example of 
an upright life, well spent in their interest. Mr. Douw was a graduate 
of Princeton College, New Jersey, and for many years a successful mer- 
chant in this city, as a member of the hardware firm, of which John D. 
P. Douw. his father, was senior member, and which had its place of business 
corner of State street and Broadway, site of Douw's building. Upon the 
death of his father, Mr. Volkert P. Douw succeeded to the care and 
management of the business, and was long well known in the city and 
elsewhere as a judicious and successful man of business. Many years 
ago he retired from more a'ctive employments, having attained a large 
fortune. Few men have more strongly marked traits of character than 
had Mr. Douw. He possessed a most excellent judgment, which seldom 
led him astray, and rendered him in all matters decided and positive and 
entirely self-reliant. His sagacity was 'rarely at fault in the estimate 
which h.e formed of mo. itatious and unobtrusive himself, no- 
thing was less likely 1 to deceive , him than the glitter of unfounded preten- 
sion. His manners, and his habits of thought were stamped with the 
courtliness and finish of the earlier age in which they were found. A 
close observer, an ex-tensive reader, a lover of the beautiful in nature and 
in the arts, travel in his' own and in foreign countries had added to his 

geniality and grace of character .stores of information and anec- 
dote, which a memory wonderful in its accuracy and retentiveness to the 
last, never failed to recall, as occasion warranted, and gave to him social 
accomplishments and conversational powers rarely possessed. A friend 
of the poor, an upright and enterprising citizen, a faithful and self-sacri- 
ficing friend, he goes down to the grave after an honorable and well spent 

life, deeply regretted by the community. — Argus Margaret E. 

Manning, wife of Wm. H. Finch, died, aged 22. 

17. Dr. Alden March died, aged 74. He was born in Sutton, Wor- 
cester county, Mass., in 1795. His early life was passed on a farm, 
and the rudiments of his education acquired in public schools, in which, 
for a short time, he was a teacher. He studied medicine with an elder 
brother, who was surgeon in the United States army, and attended medical 
lectures in Boston. He graduated at Brown University, Providence, R. I., 
which, at that time, had a department of medicine. Williams College 
conferred the degree of LL.D. on Dr. March, and he was honorary mem- 
ber of most of the leading societies of this country. While a student of 
medicine, he was distinguished for his zeal and industry in the study of 
anatomy, and this laid a firm foundation for his future surgical renown. 
In the pursuit of his studies, no difficulty seemed too great, no obstacle 
too formidable overcome. And the same indomitable will,

live characterized his whole 

ind immediately commenced the prac- 
n, which he pursued with untiring devotion and 
until his death. His often-repeated wish, that he might " die with his 
armor on," has been amply fulfilled ; for, until wirliiu the last few weeks, 
he has been most actively engaged in the laborious duties of his profession. 
Immediately previous to his sickness, he made the journey r 
Orleans, to attend a meeting of the National Medical Association, of which 

been an honored member and president. On his return, he was 
in usual health, engaged actively in surgical practice, and only found time 

1 1 ally to look after the affairs of his farm, a few miles out of town. 
He was passionately fond of agricultural pursuits, and in this way exposed 
himself to cold, which kindled into activity a chronic disease, from which 
he had long and uncomplainingly suffered. He was attended by his be- 
loved colleagues and friends, Dr. James McNaughton, Dr. James P Boyd, 
and his brother-in-law, Dr. Armsby, and during his last illness was visited 
by most of the medical gentlemen of the city. His death, in the full 
vigor of mental and physical activity and usefulness, will leave a void in 
our city and in the profession, that will be most deeply felt and deplored. 
Dr. March was one of the most remarkable and gifted men of his time. 
No medical man in this country was more widely known, or more 
highly respected and esteemed. It was the common remark and 
testimony of medical men, that Dr. March was the highest and best surgical 
authority in this country. Among the prominentmedical men of Europe, 
whose acquaintance he had made during his frequent visits abroad, he was 
everywhere received with distinguished notice and honor. No improve- 
ment in his profession escaped his attention and investigation. His bold 
and independent habits of thought and action were always conspicuous, 
and he originated many new and important improvements in surgical 
science. As a bold, dexterous and skillful operator, Dr. March had no 
superior in this or any country. This is the universal testimony of the 
profession, and especially of those who have enjoyed the most extensive 
opportunities of foreign travel and observation. •Few persons ever com- 
bined so many of the elements of a great and successful surgeon. He 
had a frame of wonderful power and endurance, a mind of electric quick- 
ness and ceaseless activity, with skill in discrimination and tact, and dex- 
terity in execution, which carried him successfully through the most 
difficult and trying ordeal of surgical practice. He was a most thorough 
student of anatomy, having taught this branch ten years, before he occu- 
pied the chair of surgery in our Medical College. Thus armed with ac- 
curate knowledge and skill, he was never dismayed by the magnitude or 
danger of a surgical operation, upon which, perhaps, the safety or life of 
his patient depended. Having prepared himself for every emergency, 
he would commence an operation with calmness and self-possession, which 
inspired hope and confidence in his patients, and excited admiration and 
astonishment among his assistants and associates. He never seemed to 
that his own reputation was at stake, when the most hazardous 
operation gave but a slight and only hope of saving the life of a patient. 
At all hours of the day or night, his best services were cheerfully and 
promptly rendered ; without partiality, to the poor and the rich alike, and 
while he required just compensation from one class, he rendered as faith- 
ful and willing service to the other. But the great beauty of his charac

ter was in his domestic and Christian life. No man was more loving or 
more beloved in his house, than Dr. March, and no one in the church of 
which he was a main pillar, was looked up to with more respect and con- 
fidence. His whole life was characterized by simplicity, honesty and 
integrity, as evinced in the faithful fulfillment of every trust confided to 
his care during a long life of public service and honor He was the 
father and one of the founders of the Albany Medical College, and its 
offspring, the Albany City Hospital. More than forty years ago he 
delivered a public lecture On the Propriety of establishing a Medical 
College and Hospital in the city of Albany. Among the last acts of his 
eventful life, he donated to these institutions, each $1,000. To the col- 
lege he bequeathed his pathological museum, the most extensive and valu- 
able in this country, with $1,000, the interest of which is to be perpetu- 
ally employed for its care and preservation. To the hospital he had given 
the same amount, the interest to be expended for the purchase of surgi- 
cal instruments for use in the hospital. The name of Dr. March has long 
been a household word throughout the land. His students are num- 
bered by thousands, in whose hearts his memory is embalmed forever. 
Every one has some kind and cherished remembrance of his honored and 
beloved preceptor. Wherever a student or graduate of Albany Medical 
College is found, and they are scattered throughout the length and breadth 
of the land, it is claimed, as their highest honor and merit, that they 
" have been a student of Dr. March, of Albany." When the deceased 
came to this city, it had a population of less than fifteen thousand. With 
the enterprise and activity which have characterized his whole life, he 
at once conceived the idea of establishing a medical college and hospital 
here. At that time there was but one hospital and two colleges in the 
state. He began a course of lectures on anatomy in 1821, in the attic of 
an old building in Montgomery street, above Columbia. His first class 
of students numbered fourteen, most of whom were young physicians. 
His material for demonstration was brought overland from Boston, at 
great expense and personal risk. These lectures were continued, and 
petitions were circulated among our citizens, year after year, for a char- 
ter for a medical college. At length, with the aid of his associate, Dr. 
Armsby, and the support of prominent citizens of Albany, a charter was 
obtained from the legislature, and our Medical College was organized and 
commenced operations January 3d, 1839. Dr. March has been at the 
head of this institution thirty years, after having labored eighteen years 
to prepare the way for its establishment This institution, the fruit of 
his labors and enterprise ; the church which he has contributed so largely 
to build up, and the hospital with which he has been so prominently 
identified since its foundation, and the various other public enterprises 
with which he has been connected, will associate his name with the his- 
tory and progress of Albany, as enduringly as that of any other citizen. — ■

from about 1825 to 1853. Mr. Howe and George N. Geary entered into 
partnership in 1831, and commenced business in J. L. Staats's building, 
corner of State and South Pearl streets. After five years the firm 
was dissolved, Mr. H. continuing the business there until the spring of 
1840, when he moved to the Exchange Building, where he remained for 
five years. He then formed a copartnership with Robert Freeman, and

removed to No. 12 Broadway, and thence the next year to Nos. 481 and

years, and after its dissolution Mr. Howe continued in business until 1853, 
when he sold his stock to Messrs. Duncan & Brother, and removed to New 
York, where he remained until his death. In early life he became a 
member of the First M. E. church, then Division, now Hudson street. 
He was a member and officer of the Sunday school of the church many 
years, and superintendent of the same for 12 years, between 1825 and 1848, 
Silas B. Howe will long be remembered for his genial and catholic spirit, 
and friendly disposition. His ear and heart were always open to the

5. The Jewish new year began this evening. It was a season of great 
joy, and an occasion on which neighbors indulge in gift offerings among 
each other and a general renewal of old friendships. It was also attended 
with certain religious ceremonies at the different synagogues. The New 
Year is honored by the Jews as a great festival, and many closed their places 
of business and kept them closed until the allotted time of festivity was 

over The fortieth anniversary of Rev. Dr. Sprague's connection with 

the Second Presbyterian church was made the occasion of an eloquent 
commemorative sermon by that venerable divine yesterday morning. 
The church was very much crowded, and in addition to a full attendance 
of the congregation, there were gathered many members of other congre- 
gations, and prominent citizens of Albany. The pulpit was beautifully 
decorated with flowers : on each side of the Bible cushion there was a large 
bouquet of rare flowers, and within the panel upon the front of the pulpit 
there was a large bed of beautiful white flowers, surrounded by a border 
of green, upon which were the emblematic figures 1829, composed of 
small red roses. In addition to these floral adornments there were festoons 
of flowers, suspended from each of the upper corners of the pulpit and 
gathered in a loop beneath the figures. The reverend gentleman selected 
for his text Deuteronomy, 2d chapter, and part of the 7th v >rs> : " These 
forty years, the Lord, thy God, hath been with thee." i i iom this 

68 Notes from th- >er8. [1869. 

angularly appropriate text, Dr. Sprague preached a touching discourse, in 
•which he alluded to the great chauges that had occurred since he assumed 
I he duties of the ministry in this city. In his own congregation, there is 
scarcely a person now living of those to whom he ministered in 1829. 
The changes in the city at large, the great increase of population, the 
growth of the churches of the various denominations, especially the 
churches which were the offspring of the Second Presbyterhm, and the 
progress of Christianity throughout the world, were referred to, and the 
favoring providence of God during all that long period was acknowledged 
: i age of great beauty and force. He also stated the remarkable 
t during his forty years of ministration here, there had invariably 
been the utmost harmony in all the counsels of his church. At times, 
during his admirable discourse, the venerable and venerated preacher 
was visibly affected by the reminiscences that crowded upon his memory, 
and the vast congregation listened to his eloquent words with deep emotion. 
At the afternoon service, Dr. Sprague repeated the first sermon which he 
preached in Albany, forty years ago. Previous to that time he had 
preached fourteen years, and he has therefore been connected with the 
sacred ministry for the long period of fifty years. May he long be spared 
to the congregation for whom in his vigorous old age he still performs his 
pastoral duties with such entire acceptance, and to the church, of which 

he is^ such a distinguished ornament. — Journal Sarah A., wife of

at an earl) age, and resided in the city of New York nearly or quite a 
quarter of a century. When he left here he gave promise of becoming 
well known as among the best portrait painters in this country. Perhaps 
no more versatile and accomplished painter than the subject of our present 
brief sketch has existed, at all events, in America. His pencil had a 
facility and truth which enabled him not only at times to dazzle, but to 
defy. criticism. Unfortunately the needs of existence compelled him to 
labor, which in many cases was barely profitable, while it could not con- 
duce to his artistic reputation. Nevertheless he left behind him hundreds 
of portraits which are only excelled by those of his friend, the late Charles 
Elliott, and two of which, those of his father and mother, are works that 
the friends of any painter, dead or living, might be proud to claim. He 
was " stone of the old stone," for he. was elected into the National Academy 
in 1853, and is not to be counted with the members chosen in obedience 
to a necessity forced upon it of late years. Many of our readers will 
remember his admirable painting of the harvest, exhibited some years 
since ; his gem-like bits of landscape, as well as the dead fish and game, 
which testify to the universality of his ability. The disease under which 

Sept.] Notes from tfie Newspapers. 69 

lie died was dropsy, superinduced by the want, of care on his own part. 
He had always been too strong and vigorous to comprehend the danger 
from which he was suffering. As a man he possessed a large heart and a 
quick, yet honest temper, being one whose death will be more than lamented 
by hundreds of personal friends. These will forget any fault in character 
as they call to mind the genial and affectionate disposition which has 

passed away from them. — New York Herald Isaac Fish died, aged 54.

he had served, with great distinguished usefulness and acceptability, for 
more than forty years. As an expression of their affection for him, and 
that they may still enjoy his society and spritual counsels, the church 
has voted him an annual salary of $2,000. This will place him above 
pecuniary embarrassment, and afford him an opportunity to pursue his 
literary labors uninterruptedly, and to close his long and useful life among 
those who have grown up under his ministry. The following are the pro- 
ceedings of the joint meeting of the trustees and session of the church.

inches of rain had fallen. Much damage was done to the stree ! 
with the cessation of the storm began the rise of water in the river, which 

reached an unusual height A new theatre was opened in Division 

street. The edifice was erected by the Methodists, and was occupied by 
the first Methodist society ; then by tbe Unitarians. It was now fitted 
up in good style, and leased under the name of the Academy of Music,

5. The freshet continued during all of this day, doing immense dam- 
age to the lumber yards, the island gardens, and the commercial houses 
on the pier and docks. Tbe water rose to a greater height than had been 
known except when blocked up by ice in the gorges below. More lives 
were lost than ever before by a freshet. All the rail roads were inun- 
dated, and trains ceased to run, except on the Central and the Troy roads. 
The water began to recede very slowly in the afternoon, no rain having 
fallen since the forenoon of the previous day.

to emerge Richard Taylor died, aged 59. Peter Coan died, aged 58.

14. The First Congregational church, corner of Eagle and Beaver 
streets, was dedicated, sermon by the pastor, the Rev. Mr. Smart, and 
the presentation by Hon. Bradford R. Wood. The following description 
of it was published in the papers : Tbis new church edifice stands upon 
the plot of ground bounded by Eagle, Beaver and Daniel streets, and is 
the finest specimeu of the Romanesque style of architecture in this city. 
It is built in the most substantial manner of bard burnt brick with dress^ 
ing of Lockport lime stone. The exterior walls of the basement and 
lecture room stories are of graywacke stone^from Schenectady, laid in 
cement The basement is entered from Daniel street, and is occupied 
by hot air furnaces, fuel, &c. The lecture room floor is approached from 
Beaver street, and is divided into Sunday school room, capable of seat- 
ing 380 scholars, exclusive of the infant department, which accommodates 
110 ; the church parlor, a large room which can be made tributary to the 
lecture room, and will add one hundred seats to it; Sunday library, kitch- 
ens, &c. This story is sixteen feet high, the basement story extending 
under the whole of it. The audience room floor is entered from Eagle 
street (upon which the principal facade stands) by three richly moulded 
cut* stone doorways, each of which are approached by cut stone steps, 
spacious vestibules with stairs to gallery on the north and south sides, and 
also to lecture room floor below. The auditorium is sixty-six feet by 
seventy-six feet and contains one hundred and twenty-eight pews capa- 
ble of accommodating eight hundred and forty persons. The gallery will 
accommodate three hundred and sixty. The pews, gallery front, and the 
other fittings of the interior are painted in parti-colors, displaying great 
taste and surmounted by capping and moulding of black walnut. The 
pews are cushioned and upholstered with crimson damask ; the platform 
is of most ample dimensions, and stands upon a semi-circular dais, raised 
one step above the level upon which the pews stand, giving convenient 
space for the communion table and the chairs for the deacons; directly 
in the rear of the pulpit is the manual of the organ, hid from view by a 
simple screen of black walnut, covered with crimson repps, which forms 
a back ground for the three massive black walnut chairs for the clergy. 
The ceiling is formed by three planes intersected by moulded ribs of 
stucco, dividing the whole into pauels. The roof is sustained by six 
trusses of novel form, being the largest single span of trusses in the 
city. The ceiling and side walls are frescoed in soft neutral tints, and 
treated in what is technically called the flat mode. The audience room 
is lighted by Frink's patent reflector, suspended a few inches below the 
ceiling, containing sixty-four gas burners, and so arranged that the heat 
does not affect the air of the room. The light from without is obtained 
through stained glass windows, from the establishment of Geo. Morgan & 
Bros., of New York, and are formed of stencil cpiarries with hand painted 
borders and richly colored glass in circular heads and spandrils, and are 
the most satisfactory windows, in style and tone of colors, we remember 
to have seen. The organ, built by Messrs. Steer & Turner, of Westfield, 
Mass., has two manuals and pedal of seventy-seven notes ; three composi- 
tion pedals ; the bellows has three feeders, and is worked by a balance

and is an instrument of great power and purity of tone, and reflects 
redit on the builders. This instrument stands in the recess formed 
wt' the church, and is covered hy a fret-work screen of wood 
I in parti-colors, the three bags of pipes are decorated with much 
cl skill, and are surrounded by tracery of black walnut and chest- 
nut, and being directly in the rear of the platform, pulpit, &c, forms one 
of the most pleasing features of this chaste and beautiful auditorium. 
The ventilation of the church is secured by ventiducts of wood built in 
the walls — the column of air being rarified in them by means of braziers 
fed by gas, creating great heat and securing bottom ventilation; adjusted 
registers are placed in the ceiliug, to be operated at pleasure. The prin- 
cipal front of this fine structure it- on Eagle street, and covers a space of 
about 84 feet with massive tower i\nd spire on the north-west corner, and 
rising from the sidewalk to a height of one hundred and twenty feet. 
The balance of the front is secured by the introduction of an octagonal 
buttress on the south side of front, rising to a height of ninety feet, and 
crowned by a circular turret. A pleasing feature of this front is the 
large centre windows, formed by two large bays, with a smaller one 
between and a circular one over all. The tower is of brick to the base of 
covered with slate from Vermont. The walls are of 
galvanized iron ; the roof of the nave is covered with slate, same as spire. 
The erection of this structure reflects great credit upon all concerned — 
the trustees and congregation, for their liberality in furnishing the means ; 
the architects, for the skill and taste displayed ; and the builders, for the 
manner in which they have executed their trusts. Woollett and Ogden 
architects, Aspinwall and Nephew, masons; John N. Parker and Francis 
Clark, carpenters; John W.Osborn& Co., slaters; Arthur Boyle, plasterer ; 
Lemuel Mickel, fresco artist ; William Smith, painter; Lang and Stor- 
mount, stone cutters ; Morgan & Brothers, stained glass ; Tucker & Craw- 
ford, gas fitters ; Doyle & Bugan, plumbers ; Shanks, upholsterer ; 
furnished by Koonz. The cost of this enterprise will be about 

one hundred and thirty thousand dollars. — Argus James Drue 

died, aged 25. 

15. Frederick H. Hastings died, aged 51, at Brainard's Bridge, where 
he had resided for some years. He was a man of refined instincts, of 
scholarly cultivation, and somewhat conservative in his political proclivi- 
ties. He never mingled much or actively in party movements, nor 
figured as an office seeker. He represented the 12th district in the state 
senate of 1864 '65 (Rensselaer and Washington counties). His election 
to the senate was the result of a division between two factions in the 
district of almost equal strength, aud was rather a compliment to his 
estimable personal character than a recognition of political claims. In 
the senate, Mr. Hastings distinguished himself by the fidelity with which 
he discharged his duties, by a conscientious regard for the public in- 
terests, and by an utter freedom from those artifices which demagogues 
adopt to promote their own reputation and secure a lease of power. 
Naturally quiet and reserved in temperament, he sought no occasions for 
display ; but no one upon the floor was more respected than he. During 
his term the bill providing for the establishment of a capital police dis- 
trict was introduced, and its passage was clue in a great degree to his 
earnest and laborious efforts in its behalf — efforts which were the more 
important and difficult, because he encountered the zealous and uncoin- 

Oct.] Notes from the Newspapers. 73 

promising opposition of the talented and eloquent Ira Shaffer, then sena- 
tor from Albany. In the same term, the famous, and in many respects 
unfortunate, conspiracy bill was passed. From Senator Hastings's posi- 
tion on committee, his name became associated with this measure, and he 
was wrongly charged with being its author ; a mistake which led many 
workingmen's associations to denounce him by resolution, and even to 
burn him in effigy. Although keenly sensitive to these significant marks 
of popular disapprobation, he had such a high sense of honor in his re- 
lations to brother members, that he never sought to explain, or to defend 
himself by placing the responsibility where it belonged. Even during 
his brief public life, Mr. Hastings was almost an invalid. Accustomed 
visitors of the senate chamber will remember his guant, spare figure ; his 
pale, finely chiseled features ; his eyes shaded by colored glasses. Upon 
his retirement from office, he withdrew to his beautiful rural home, and 
passed the closing years of his life in a hopeless struggle with chronic 
disease, relieved by the favorite companionship of books and nature, and 
by a slight attention to business. We believe his political career was 
confined to the county board of supervisors and to the senate. As a citi- 
zen, he was always distinguished by enterprise, public spirit, and a 
generous regard for the interests of his neighbors. But his chosen sphere 
was the domestic circle, and in this his abundant virtues and wealth of 
sympathies made him warm attachments, and secured for him esteem 

such as few men enjoy. — Journal William D. Wells died, aged 51. 

John O'Brien died, aged 62. Orinda Osterhout died, aged 36. 

16. Elizabeth BeWitt, wife of A. Thorndike, died at Manliall, Texas. 

17. Victor M. Bice, late state superintendent of public instruction, 
died in Buffalo, of malignant carbuncle. He was born in Mayville, 
Chautauqua county, April 5, 1818. His educational advantages, while 
in his youth, were deficient, but after he became of age he attended 
Alleghany College, Pennsylvania. He studied law in Mayville, in 1842, 
but the next year was enlisted in school teaching in Buffalo High School. 
Subsequently he edited the Cataract and the Western Temperance Stand- 
ard, and then returned to teaching. In 1852 he was elected city superin- 
tendent of schools in Buffalo. Here his talents as an organizer became 
better known. He had previously shown his adaptability to the educa- 
tional and disciplinary branches. He was elected to the assembly in 1851, 
where he served as chairman of the committee on public educatiou. In 
1853, he was chosen president of the State Teachers' Association, and in 
1854 was elected state superintendent of public instruction, to which 
position he was reelected in 1862, and served until 1868. Mr. Rice was 
possessed of a rare organizing ability, and was endowed with a strong, nerv- 
ous, sanguine temperament.' His early disadvantages rendered him a warm 
friend of the common schools. The office of school commissioner was created 
upon his advice, and the admirable Code of Public Instruction now in 
vogue in this state was the offspring of his genius and ability. Our 
common school system is one of the best in the world, and it owes the 
fact largely to Mr. Rice. The change in politics deprived the state of 
his services just as he was about bringing to still higher perfection laws 

bearing upon the subject. — Journal Catharine, wife of Thomas 

McLoughlin died, aged 53. John Delaney died, aged 35. Charles E. 
Houck died, aged 37.

23. The New City Building was now nearly completed, composing one 
of the most pleasing and imposing edifices in the city, and is thus described 
by the Argus : The principal fronts are on Pearl and Howard 
street-, and are Lombardic in treatment, the material used being Lake 
Champlaiu lime stone and brick, making a very pleasant effect. In the 
centre of each. front is a cupola continuation of the French roof, with 
smaller ones at each corner, the different stories being lofty and the win- 
dows in deep reveal with the massive rusticated stone work of the base- 
ment story, tend to form a most imposing facade. In the basement story 
is located the heating apparatus for the whole building, consisting of six 
large Oriental hot air furnaces, with fuel rooms, ash pits, &c. On the 
south-east portion of this story are the janitor's quarters. One room on 
the south side is set apart for cells to be used in connection with the 
Second precinct. This story is well supplied with hot and cold water. 
On the south-east portion of the principal story, and entered from Pearl 
street, is the office of the fire commissioners, a spacious apartment twenty- 
eight by twenty-nine feet, very tastefully fitted up and admirably suited 
for the purpose. Adjoining is the chief's room, twenty-four- feet by 
eighteen feet, equally good in appearance and adaptability. Across the 
hall from the fire commissioners' rooms are the offices of the police com- 
missioners, superintendent and clerk, very conveniently arranged, the 
commissioner's room being on the corner of Howard and Pearl streets, 
with the clerk's office adjoining and fronting Pearl street; contiguous to 
the clerk's office, and having an entrance from the Howard street hall is 
the superintendent's room with private office attached. There is also a 
property room, lavatory, and other conveniences. On the right of the 
Howard street entrance is the detectives' office, with its rogue's gallery, 
and collection of horrors, which you pass through to the sleeping room 
for detectives. Passing along the spacious hall you next come to the 
poor master's office and waiting room attached, with a very necessary 
private entrance from William street. The remainder of this floor is 
devoted to the Second Precinct, with a room to the right of the William 
street entrance fitted up with two tiers of cells. On the Howard street 
side are three sleeping rooms for captain and sergeants; this precinct has 
also a private staircase to the court room floor above, and police dormito- 
ries in the third story. On the lower story, at the east end, are the 
police court and a room for private consultation. The large court 
room is forty-one feet by twenty-eight feet; the smaller one, adjoining, 
is twenty-eight feet square. Both are fitted up in a neat and tasty 
manner, with witness stand, spectators' neats. &c. , a forcible contrast to 
the dirty, low, badly ventilated court room in the old building, and a 
source of congratulation to the justices. Next to the court room is the

office for the city attorney, a good sized, pleasant room. On the west 
end are the justices' courts, with justices' clerk's office in connection, 
and the justices' private office. Both these courts (as well as the police 
court), are lofty — this story being seventeen feet high, and are fitted up 
in a similar manner to the police court. The north court room is thirty 
nine feet by twenty-eight, and the heating and ventilation admirable. 
There is also on this story a room for the reserve police — a great con- 
venience. Ascending the main stairs to the third story, you come to the 
Fire-alarm telegraph office, very well arranged, the operating room being 
on the southeast corner of the building ; on the west of it is the battery 
room, and on the north, extending over the Pearl street front is the 
sleeping room of the operators, and a private office for the superintendent. 
There are two other large rooms suitable for offices on this story, which 
have not as yet secured occupants. Ascending the private stairs, from 
the second to the third story, we found two dormitories for the police, 
covering the same space as the justices' courts below. Adjoining are 
two lodging rooms for male and female vagrants, and the photographing- 
room connected with the police. These rooms, to which access is had 
from the private stairs, are entirely shut off from the Fire-alarm depart- 
ment, as the main stairs only extend to the third story. By ascending to 
the fourth floor by these private stairs, you reach the large drill room 
extending the whole length and width of the building. The whole of 
the smoke and ventilation flues being carried up in the outside walls, 
makes this entirely clear of obstruction, and specially available for its 
intended use. The building committee, consisting of the mayor, alder- 
men Mulhall, Smith, Mills and Parker, under whose direction, in con- 
junction with the architects (Messrs. Woollet & Ogden), the work has 
been carried out, are deserving of great praise for this substantial and 
ornamental edifice. We have no other public building in this city so 
well adapted and contrived for the purposes intended, and too much 
praise cannot be awarded to the builders, for a better example of masons' 
work than Patrick McCarthy has done in this work, or better carpenters' 
work than Geo. Martin has executed, wehave never seen. The painting 
was done by Corliss. M. Delehanty furnished the furnaces, and did

; 1. Paul A. Sabbaton, died, aged 81. Few men have been 
dished in their career by greater enterprise, or by more inventive 
resources and energy. Though a native of France, he was a true patriot 
and loyal American. Mr. S. was but 13 years of age when he left France 
to avoid the conscription, and when he arrived in New York, went into the 
office of the New York- Spectator, as printer. He was a close friend of 
Fulton, and drew the specifications and prepared the plans of the first steam 
boat on the Hudson. In the war of 1812, he held the government contract 
for supplying shot and shell, and erected the works at Cold Spring. His 
career, though marked by many vicissitudes, was distinguished by uni- 
form gentleness of character and serenity of mind. — Argus Upon his 

arrival in this country at the age of 13, he was sent by his uncle (a French 
importing merchant) to a school in New Brunswick to learn the English 
language. Here he remained until he was 17 years of age, when he went 
into the office of his uncle, who afterwards purchased the Mercantile 
tiser, and continued its publication with Amos Butler, as partner. 
Mr. Sabbaton continued in the office several years; afterwards turned his 
attention to the iron business, which he continued successfully until the 
disastrous year, 1837, when in consequence of numerous failures in New 
York, he became also involved, and soon after turned his attention to the 
manufacture of gas, in which business he continued until his death. He 
was a close friend of Fulton, and drew the specifications and prepared 
the plans of the first steam boat on the Hudson. In the war of 1812, he 
held the government contract for supplying shot and shell, and erected 
the works at Cold Spring. In all the relations of life, few men leave 
a fairer record. His mind was enlarged by general reading, and there 
were fev subjects upon which he was not conversant. His nature was 
affectionate and generous in the extreme. Modest in his deportment, he 

was only appreciated by those who knew him best. — Journal Mrs.

6. Great snow storm — navigation closed. In a gossipy Albany letter 
to the New Tor/: Leader, we find the following description of this sensa- 
tional snow storm, and of a sleigh ride on the road. He was a profane 
as well as a prejudiced member of the legislature who spoke of Albauy in 
words following : " It's ten feet under snow in the winter, ten feet under 
water in the spring, and so d — d hot in the summer that you cannot live 
there ! " It snowed here Monday with a fury seeming to indicate that 
nature intended to verify that wicked legislator's unkind assertion Snow, 
like peace, hath its victories, and Monday's engagement proved a great 
triumph to the storm king. With the snow came sleighing, and with 
the sleighing came fancy cutters, fast horses, pretty girls and lots of fun. 
I interviewed a man who owns a 2 : 40 nag this morning, and he asked 
me to take a turn on the road. The road is the thoroughfare which lies

between this city and the suburban village of West Troy. A very nice 
road it is. A cheerful cemetery nestles beside one portion of it, and 
close to the cemetery a widow lady keeps a tavern, where she dispenses 
hot drinks to cold customers. The air to-day is sharp and bracing. In 
the clear splendor of the winter sunshine the snow flakes glitter like 
diamonds, as they lie closely packed and hard on the frozen ground. 
Everybody is on the road. Merchant princes, politicians, gentlemen of 
leisure, men of business, lovely ladies and laughing children join in the 
general sport. Riding behind a team of bay horses you may see Erastus 
Corning, who seems of late, to have gained a new lease of life, and who 
is looking remarkably well and happy. I know of no man past middle 
age, with the single exception, perhaps, of Cornelius Vanderbilt, who 
has so handsome a face as Mr. Corning. More than half a century ago 
he came into Albany a crippled boy, friendless and penniless. By an 
industry marvelous to me, and a skill unknown to newspaper correspond- 
ents generally, this poor boy grew to be a very rich man ; but unless the 
benignant mouth and mild, kindly eyes greatly belie him, he has not 
forgotten the suffering which poverty fetches and which wealth may re- 
lieve; and he cultivates that attribute which is of the three, greatest — 
charity. He bows pleasantly as we pass him in our cutter, and the fact 
that our horse can beat his team doesn't seem to trouble him as it would 
the Rev. Dr. Corey, of Murray Hill. Speeding along to the music of the 
tintinabulating bells, we presently met Governor Hoffman and his private 
secretary, Col. Van Buren. The governor handles the ribbons very 
skillfully, and seems to enjoy greatly this hour's relaxation from the try- 
ing duties of his official position. He is looking extremely well. The 
exercise has given a glow to his cheeks, which are Ordinarily rather pale, 
and added new brilliancy to his eyes, which are never dull. If he was 
not in such a hurry, I'd stop him and inquire whom he was going to 
nominate for health officer of New York. The name of that gentleman 
would make an interesting item. Now comes VVilliam Cassidy, editor of 
the Argus, and the most accomplished and genial gentleman in Albany. 
He is driving at a very moderate pace, and is not, I should judge, much 
of a horseman, but he is a stupendous pedestrian. I took a walk with him 
the other evening, and after a few hours' experience I felt ready to back 
him against Weston or any other man. I have sketched but a few of 
the many who are enjoying this wintry pleasure. But I shall interview 
some more men who own 2:40 nags, and may hereafter meet other citi- 
zens worth describing on the road to Troy Catharine, wife of 

John Walsh, died, aged 52. Mrs. Catharine Burns died, aged 75. 

7. John Cooke died, aged 60. Mrs. Anna I. Kane died, aged 74. 

8. Jane, wife of A. A. Dunbp, died, aged 49. Dr. P. B. McKelvey 
died in New Orleans, aged 63, formerly of Albany. 

9. John De Coffs died, aged 64. Bridget Quinn died, aged 91. 

10. James Lillis died, aged 65. Mary E. Clapp died, aged 21. Ca- 
tharine McCarty died, aged 71.

of this city, died at Joliet, Illinois, aged 40. 

12. The church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, the well 
known building situated on the north side of Hamilton street, between 
Grand and Fulton streets, was solemnly dedicated to divine worship by 
very Rev. E. P. Wadhams, administrator in the absence of Bishop Con-

roy. The building is a recent purchase from the First African I 

the possession of the late occupants since 1826, 
as a church ami school-house, and in view of the fact that the re 
of a majority of the late congregation had become too remote from the 
locality, was recently thrown in market and found a ready sale for a i'air 
ration. The French and Canadians in this city and vicinity have 
long desired a church of their own. From time to time efforts have been 
made to erect one, but apparently without success. The number of this 
class of our adopted citizens is constantly increasing, and the responsi- 
bility of the recent purchase having been assumed by competent parties, 
the African church passed into the hands of its present owners. It has 
been materially improved throughout. Its late dingy exterior has been 
brightened with a fresh coat of delicate hued paint, the old fashioned 
small paned window sashes have been replaced by modern plate glass, 
and the entrance door has been handsomely grained. Outside, in tact, 
the old building would hardly know itself. Inside, the busy hand of 
improvement is even more manifest. Upon the late interior, from ceil- 
ing to floor, remorseless time had bestowed a complexion which was in- 
describable. It was neither mysterious white nor undecided brown, but 
whatever it was, is undiscoverable now, so completely is the old obli- 
terated by the new. The pews have been repaired, every part of the in- 
terior thoroughly cleaned and the ceiling and walls neatly frescoed and 
tinted. It is really a very pretty church. The sanctuary is of good 
dimensions and the altar tastefully designed. The altar piece repre- 
senting The Assumption of the Virgin is a painting of much beauty, and 
in proportions as well as subject, admirably adapted to the position it 
occupies. It is the work of a distinguished artist. The services yester- 
day morning were attended by a congregation numbering perhaps four 
hundred. The mass was celebrated by Very Rev. Father Wadhams. 
Rev. Mr. Shehan was also present on the altar. The dedicatory sermon 
was delivered by Rev. Father Gaguier, of Montreal. It was in the 
French language, and was a fervently eloquent discourse. The preacher 
is a man of distinction, and both in manner and matter was well worth 
attention. At the close of the service, Rev. Mr. Wadhams briefly con- 
gratulated the assemblage upon the auspicious event of the day and al- 
luded in terms of pride to the beautiful little edifice which their zeal and 
energy had secured for the French and Canadian people. The music 
consisted of what is known as the Gregorian plain chant, and was ren- 
dered with good effect by a number of sonorous male voices. It was a 
relief to listen to it, unpretentious and yet solemn as it was, after the 
operatic hop-skip-and jump music of the period. There are said to be 
about one hundred and fifty French and Canadian families in this city 
and vicinity who will attend this church exclusive, we believe, of a num- 
ber attending other Catholic churches. — Argus William II. Smith 

died, aged 37. He had been a member of the old Veteran fire depart- 
ment of which he was at one time assistant engineer. 

13. The American Hotel, 100 State street, underwent another trans- 
formation, and came out as the Watkius House. It was opened on the 
European plan, under the auspices of Mr. Charles Watkins, and was so 
completely renovated that the Hosfords, if they were living, would not 
ze the edifice they erected for a printing and publishing house in 
the first quarter of a century Jacob Relyea died, aged 50.

aged 83. 

17. Michael Scully died, aged 71. Lorenz Ludwig died, aged 44. 
Iiebecca, widow of Peter G-. Van Zandt, died, aged 73. 

18. Sophia Schoolcraft, wife of John W. Wolford, died, aged 66. Mrs. 
Margaret Carroll, died, aged 88. George Yi. Hallett died at Utica, aged 
42, and was buried from Grace Church in this city. 

19. The new Methodist Episcopal Church, corner of Ten Broeck and Lum- 
ber streets, was dedicated. This is the cheapest church ever erected in 
Albany, and yet it is one of the neatest, best looking, cozy, cheerful and invit- 
ing chapels in the city. The interior is a model of comfort and good taste. 
There is not an inch of lost room in the whole structure. All the space 
is occupied for church purposes. The side porches give an entrance 
which does not take from the church proper a single foot of room. The 
church will seat about 800 persons. The seats are very comfortable, 
with reversible backs, like the seats to be found in rail road cars. There 
is no pulpit in the church, its place being supplied by a railed in plat- 
form, some twelve inches above the floor. This allows greater motion to 
the preacher. As action is the soul of eloquence, it will be seen that better 
sermons can be preached from a platform than could ever be preached in 
a pulpit. Think of Demosthenes denouncing Philip in a washtub. He 
might denounce, but the denunciation would never amount to eloquence, 
simply because he could not emphasize his language with proper action. 
The Sunday School and class rooms are divided from the church by fold- 
ing doors and sliding windows, a very excellent idea to save fuel and make 
things comfortable. The large class room is some 40 feet long, by 15 
wide, nicely carpeted, and supplied with chairs, tables, &c, making it a 
very beautiful parlor. This room is subdivided by other folding doors, 
so as to convert it into three smaller parlors. The doors are so arranged 
that one large parlor can be converted into three small ones in less than 
two minutes. The church is lighted by two large gas reflectors in the 
ceiling placed in the centre of two large ventilators so arranged that the 
officers can always establish the proper temperature for church purposes. 
The stained glass windows give "a rose scented tint" to the church. 
The edifice was commenced eleven weeks ago. It cost only $5,500, and 
yet there is but one better looking Methodist chapel in this part of the 
state, and that is the Ash Grove Church, which cost $50,000. How the 
committee contrived to build so handsome a church for $5,500 is some- 
thing we cannot understand, even when we know that the pastor, Rev. 
J. W. Alderman, helped to put the roof on, while the building committee 
all labored gratis. The furniture, carpets, stoves, &c, cost $60©. Rev. 
Mr. Alderman informed the congregation that the late fair and festival 
yielded 82,000; expenses, $400 ; balance $1,600, or one-sixth of the 
whole cost of the church. Such a balance sheet is seldom presented to 
any congregation. The walls and ceiling are beautifully frescoed in 
panels, by -George Merchant of this city. He has done a neat bit of 
work in a very artistic manner, and well deserves all the praise bestowed 
upon him. The painting and graining were done by John Chrysler. 
The singing is led by S. M. Birch, who has a round, full voice, which 
eminently fits him for the position which he occupies, as the leader of the 
whole congregation, for the whole congregation sings at the new church. 
The architects of the new chapel were Nichols & Brown. The dedication

sermon was preached by Presiding Elder Meredith, of this city, from 
Deuteronomy, 33d It was a very interesting dis- 

M>lid and substantial. The elder is not a brilliant preacher, and 
yet be is so intensely in earnest that the earnestness amounts to eloquence 
at times. From the elder's discourse we learn that the Meth< 
the United States and Canadas are only 270,000 less tban all the other 
members of all the other Protestant churches put together, and yet the 
Methodist church has only been established in this country one hundred 
He attribute? the rapid spread of Methodism to its peculiar or- 
ganization ; the demonstrative habits of its clergymen and the social in- 
Btincte brought forth at its class meeting, prayer meeting and love toast. 
The Rev. Mr. Aldermau, pastor of the church, also addressed the con- 
gregation briefly, referring to its history and urging upon the united 
churches to forget the bickerings of the past, and live entirely for the 
future. Mr. Alderman is one of those broad minded, out spoken men, 
who comes from the West; he is earnest, affable and eloquent. The 
building committee consisted of J. W. Osborn, Win. H. Young and S. 
J. Davenport. The trustees are J. W. Osborn, Wm. H. Young, S. J. 
Davenport, Smith Requa, S. A. Stratton, C. W. Pierce, I. J. Filkins, I.

20. At a meeting of farmers, held this day, at the Hay Scales, corner 
of Phillip and Plain streets, to take into consideration the propriety of 
iug a society for their better protection, and to make a uniform 
scale of prices for their products, so that they may have a small profit to 
reward them for their hard labor. Carey Rushmore was elected president 
and Wm. Bullock secretary, and the following resolution was unanimously 
adopted : Resolved, That we, the farmers of Albany and Rensselaer 
counties, will not, on and after Monday Dec. 20th, sell hay for less than 
the following prices, viz : 

Horse hay 75 cts. per 10O lbs.

She was a woman whose prominent characteristics were of the kind that 
command respect and win regard. She devoted herself to the duties that 
belonged to the varying relations of her life. As a wife and mother she 
was a model of tenderness and fidelity toward her husband, and of love

and thoughtfulness for her children. She assumed the obligations of 
religion, and confessed those she owed to the world around her; dis- 
charging the one class with diligence and fervency of spirit, and the 
other with charity for the infirmities of the weak and erring, sympathy 
for the afflicted, help for the needy, encouragement for the struggling, 
and applause for such as did well. She was singularly discreet in speech 
and always mindful of the interests of peace, so that she lived encom- 
passed by friends, and died without an enemy Ann McKinley died, 

aged 82. Carrie C. McChesney died, aged 26.

Barent Pieterse Koeymans was the original settler, having emigrated to this country 
from Utrecht, Holland, in 1636, and engaged himself as miller to the firsf. Patroon. He 
afterwards purchased of the Katskill Indians a tract of land having ten or twelve miles 
front on the Hudson river and extending westward to the head of the waters falling into 
the Hudson. A litigation followed between him and the Patroon, which terminated in 
favor of'Koeymans, and in 1714 he obtained a patent from Queen Anne confirming the 
whole tract to him, 

Barent Pieterse Koeymans had five children, and two only remained in Coeymans, the 
other three settled in other portions of the country. The two who continued to live on 
the Koeymans patent were Peter and Ariaantje. Peter married twice, but had no male 
descendants ; but left five daughters, all of whom were married. Of the two daughters of 
his first wife, Mayica married Andreas Witbeck and Elizabeth married Jacob Van Alen. 
01 the three daughters by his second wife Gerritje married John Barclay; Anue Mar- 
garet married Andreas Ten Eyck ; Charlotte A. married John Bronck. As we said before, 
there being no male issue, the family name of KoeymaiiB became extinct in this locality 
with the death of Peter Koeymans. 

Ariaantje Koeymans was married to David Verplank when she was of the age of 47, and 
died without issue. David Verplank subsequently married and left a large family of 
children : David inherited Ariaantje's portion of her father's property The property now 
known as the old Stone House and all that portion that is now owned by the Ten Eyck 
family came to them from Peter Koeymans — Ariaantje having never owned any property 
north of Coeymans creek. 

Elizabeth Van Dateon, great granddaughter of Peter Koeymans, married Abraham 
Verplank, and was the only member of the Verplank family related to the Koeymans 
tamily . 

Major Verplank, to whose memory a monument has been lately erected in the Cemetery, 
was in no way related to the old Koeymans family. 

The original Koeymans mansion, or Castle as it was called, stood on the site of the 
building now occupied by the family of the late Josiah Sherman. — Coeymans Gazette.

l^ome 3Lots of tfje tillage of IScbertogcfc. 

In the preface to the Early Records of the City and County of Albany, pub- 
lished in 1869, the translator made the following remark : " The identification of 
the village lots here described is rendered nearly impossible by the brevity and 
vagueness of the descriptions, the streets and lanes having been without names. 
A few lots have been located, others may be, perhaps, by a long and patient ex- 
orison." When this was written he h;. purpose 
og so difficult a task, but soon after, while the subject was still fresh, 
was led. as a matter of curiosity to test the truth of the foregoing remark, and 
after much puzzling and putting this and that together, there grew out of his 
Btudies the following ■ 1 accompanying explanations. It will 
that this attempted map of Beverwyck is confined in time to the earliest years of 
its settlement, and as to space to the limited territory within thu paligf"' 
deed this was pretty much all there was of Albany for many years after 1652, in 
which year Fort Orange ceased to be the centre of the embryo city, which there- 
after clustered around the new church built at the junction of State 6treet and 

Many conveyances of gardens and house lots around and within Fort Orange 
are registered in the county records, but none of them can now be located. The 
fort and the ancient streets there, have been completely obliterated. 

The remark that!. Beverwyck had no names should be qualified : 

several had names, though seldom used in the early conveyances. The names of 
Broadway were Cow, de breeds, or Broad, the Lower, Handelaers, and Brewers 
streets ; of Hudson, Spanish street ; of Green south of Beaver, Esplanade or Plain 
street, and north of Beaver, the Voddemart or Kag market, and Cheapside ; of 
Chapel, Berg street ; of State, Yonkers street ; of South Pearl, de Eleyne straat ; 
and of Maiden Lane, Rom street. After the charter was granted in 1686, the 
place was divided into three wards : the first embraced all that part of the town 
south of State and Exchange streets ; the second lay north of State and west of 
James streets ; and the third contained that portion lying north of State and Ex- 
change, and east of James streets. 

In the absence of any map of the lots of those early times, this attempt to con- 
struct one is based mainly upon the descriptions found in the Albany County Re- 
cords, the Patents in the Secretary of State's office, and Mr. Munsell's Annals of 
Albany. In most cases these descriptions are brief and obscure : some are not 
only defective but false and contradictory, and capable of a correct interpretation 
by subsequent repeated conveyances of the same lots. It is not to be supposed 
that this performance gives a complete picture of all the house lots in ancient 
Beverr. gaps in Broadway will be found which no ingenuity of the 

r could fill, and several lots will be found so imperfectly described in the 
records, that he has to confess his inability to locate them. 

Much remains to be learned in this matter, by the patient student, in The later 
registers of deeds and mortgages, and it is to be hoped that some one who has 
leisure may pursue r! es and render more complete this imperfect at- 

tempt to illustrate the History of Ancient Albany. J. P.

The palisades on the north side of the village crossed North Pearl 
of Maiden lane ; later 342 feet north of the same street ; at the next re 
junction of Columbia street, and finally in 1744, during the old Frencl 
Canal street.

(to Canal street ?), and lying west of North Pearl was patented in 1667 
The dimensions of this plat were 30 rods on the north side, 31 rods on 
the east and 15 rods on west. In 1675, De Vos conveyed this parcel o 
who conveved the same the next year to Cornells Van Dyck for a hop

Worshipful, valiant, most noble general, and right honorable sirs of the 
high council of New Netherland : 

As the first of May next will be the time when the terms of office of the 
three persons now serving as commissaries shall have expired, viz : Jan 
Verbeeck. Jacob Janse Schermerhooren, who last year departed for Holland, 
and Jan Thomase [Mingael], so to fill up the bench, according to former 
custom, a nomination is made of a double number of six persons, viz: Philip 
Pieterse Schuyler, Derrick Jausc Croon, ' Volckert Janse [Douw], Rem Janse 
[Smit], Evert Wendel and Arent Andriese [Bratt], from whom, if it 
please your honors of the high honorable court, to elect three persons, for 
this bench, to supply the places of the aforesaid retiring officers ; and our 
humble petition is, that your honor and the court will please make the 
election at the aforesaid time, otherwise the bench will be deficient, to the 
great inconvenience of the people here, and also the honorable company's 
service- awaiting the same, in the meantime, we pray Almighty God to 
prosper your honor's and the council's government, and that your counsels 
may long abide. In the meantime, Heer general and honorable sirs, we 
remain your honors' humble and trusty servants of the court, at Fort 
Orange and Beverwyck. 

Fort Orange, 30th of March, 1655.

Upon this the fin [ay, 1655, Steven Janse [Coninck] desires 

to sell, at this public sale, the house formerly belonging to the late 

1 1 Comelise [Van Wesap], as it at present stands, with the kitchen 

pen, and lot of the same, all according

[Wanting] shall furnish sufficient sureties to the content of 

the seller, and failing of this, it shall at once be offered for sale again, 

at the expense of the buyer, and whatever less it comes to be worth shall 

be made good by the buyer. The payment must be made in the three

On this the third 1655, I, James Dyckman, in the charac-

lector, betook myself to the house of Jacob Adriaense Soogemackelyck. 1 
Tlure were present sitting before the door, the following witnesses, Hen-

emackelyck himself. It was my earnest request that the collector, 
Marcelis Janse, should guage his ding to the farming of the

Joannes Dyckman, before doing anything else, there at the house, before 
the door, made the following protest : since you, Pieter Andriaense 
Soogemackelyck, will not permit us to guage the wine and beer you have 
in your cellar, in the name of the right honorable director general and 
council of New NetheFlaud. I protest that all the damage and expense 
which the honorable company and collector may suffer shall fall upon 
your person. * * * * * * * * [Some 

lines wanting] Steven Janse [Coninck] and also a person whose name I 
could not tell, from whom, on my friendly request for an answer, I received 
the like answer as Pieter Adriaense Soogemackelyck gave me; whereupon 
I departed again with the like protest and betook myself to the house of 
Adriaen Janse Van Leyden, finding him and his wife at home, I received 
the same answer as the other gentlemen gave ; he expressly refused 
permission for the guaging, * * * * so I protested 
against him word for word as I had done against the others.

a half and the breadth four rods, and I therefore so convey and release 
the same to and for the behoof of Volckert Janse, with such ownership

Jacob 1 ! !aet, there exists just reasons and motives, in the matter 

of their bounden duty, to be vigilant and watchful in the administration 

of justice, the offense being such, that Steven Janse was struck in the 

left side with a knife in the hand of Jacob Janse [Hendrickse] aforesaid 

in such a manner that be was redeemed from periculum citse, and that 

et was committed in the jurisdiction of the aforesaid colony. So 

it is that they [of the court of Rensselaerswyck] send a friendly request 

'ile court of Fort Orange and Beverwyek, who have proposed 

the matter that they will please detain the aforesaid Jacob Hendrickse 

under their honors' jurisdiction, and put him into the hauds of our

keeping of justice, placed and confined in a secure place, until such time 
as the state and condition of the patient Steven Janse [Coninck],

to me this morning, is, I acknowledge, in some cases wholly founded in 
justice and right, also some cases may occur, where the concession sought 
for with good reason should be withheld, unless the reasons, occasion and 
question were made known to us, why one dwelling under our juris- 
diction should properly appear before your honor's court and there be 
tried. We request, therefore, that your honors will afford us, by the 
bearer, the occasion for this demand of yours, that Having found reasons

Fort Orange, the of July, 1655. 

On the 23d day of July, 1655, I, Johan de Deckere, in the character 
of clerk and officer, at the request of Marcelis Janse, collector, assisted 
by our constable, betook myself to the house of Jacob Adriaensen 5 
mackelyck, 1 and requested him to please let the collector make a proper 
guaging of the wine and beer he had in possession. Whereupon the afore- 
said Soogemackelyck gave me as an answer, that he could not serve two 
r asters, and also that it was forbidden him. Since nothing else can be 
done at this time, I, Johan de Deckere, have made the following protest. 
As you, Pr. Adriaensen Soogemackelyck, will not permit us to guage 
the wine and beer in your cellar * * * [wanting] 

in the name and behalf of the honorable the director general and high 
council in New Xetherland, for all the expense, damage and interest which 
the honorable company and the collector have been put to and suffererh 
through your refusal, and by your perseverance therein shall cause them 
to suffer, that upon your person and those who may have ordered the same, 
such a punishmeut may be rendered as shall be proper. And in the act 
of making this protest, there appeared the person of Jan Bapi 

laer, accompanied by his brother and Brant Van Slcchtenhorst.- 

ving been informed of the reasons of my coming there, said that 

I did not appear there with proper qualifications, demanded the same of 

me, and declared that unless the same were shown he would not permit 

•ging, on the other hand, if the same were shown, the guaging 

should immediately be allowed; also that it was not according to forms of 

law, or the custom of soldiers, without previously notifying the person,' 

as if boarding a vessel; that before they were brought to the knowledge 

thereof, they might have armed themselves against the same. So, in like 

r, on this occasion, I have protested against the same as before. 

» From the manner in which the names of Jacob and Pieter Adriaensen Soogemackelyck are 
i t would seem that they were in partnership.

As before, by request, I betook myself to the house of Maria Goosense 
[Van Scbaick], and made the aforementioned demand of her ; she made 
the same kind of answer as Soogemackelyck did before. Accordingly I 
protested against her as before. * * * * [Wanting] at 
the house of Arien Appel, and to him made the same demand. He gave 
for an answer, that he dare not take it upon him. Therefore I protested 
against him also as before.

Worshipful, valiant and most noble Heer general, and right honorable 
sirs of the council, etc. My lords : 
Herewith is sent a copy of a placard, which was referred to in a former 
letter, but omitted; there goes also with this a copy of certain questions 
and answers, and the protest made thereto ; from which the condition of 
things may easily be judged and considered, and that without your 
honors, nothing more can be done by us for the maintenance of order. 
Therefore we shall await, in respect to this matter, for advice or the 
pleasure of your arrival. In the meantime, Heer general and right hono- 
rable sirs, may Almighty God grant his favor and blessing upon your 
honors' government. 

We remain your honors' humble servants. 

* * * * [Wanting]. Most noble Heer general and right 
honorable sirs of the council of New Netherland. My lords: 

With the expiration of the service of commissaries Jan Verbeeck and 
Jan Tomasse [Mingael], according to old custom and use, we think it 
proper to propose to your honors herewith, a double number of persons, 
to wit: Rut Jacobsen, Andries Herbertsen, Dirk Janse Croon, and Dirk 
Telyer (?). We request, that you will please out of the said proposed 
number, or otherwise out of the body of the burgesses, two such | 
to elect in place of the aforenamed, according to your honors accustomed 
wisdom, for the service of the aforesaid office of commissaries, as you shall 
judge fit and capable. Heer general, we cannot neglect this opportunity 
to congratulate your honor on your safe and happy voyage and arrival; we 
protest that the report and tidings of them were very pleasant for us to 
hear ; it gave us occasion to thank Almighty God therefor, and to pray, 
that He would please more and more be present by His grace in your 
honors' government, and bless your honors' weighty affairs. 

Your honors' willing and trusty servants of the court of Fort Orange 
and Beverwyck. 

30th of July. 1655. 

[Wanting] nevertheless afterwards 
being in discourse with Dominie Schaets, and from him understanding 
that the poor's purse was richly garnished, I particularly requested him in 
your honors' name, for the remission of some alms, with the recommenda- 
tion that the church consistory should propose the same, it being a point 
that the power only depends on them, wherein he was wholly agreed," and 
consented that it was in the highest degree proper that to the poor with-

him an extract out of the lettei was 

allowed by the con ad a sum of 200 guilders was sent to the 

of the city of iNew Amsterdam. The last matter to di 
about the disobedient tapsters, is the most scandalous; some being willing 
rather to fiuht to the last drop of blood, and others * * * 
that those persons should be sent away. In the mean while with this 
explanation (since winter is upon us), we shall wait till the next year. 
Mods. Rensselaer desires to send a pleasant greeting; he has as yet 
I no corn, on the contrary appears not inclftied to do so. 
Thomas Chambers, 1 alias Clabbort (so it was reported), has indeed 
several hundred schepels of wheat; but on account of his absence at the 
Esopus he cannot be spoken to. Wherefore, on his return, the business 
can be arranged, and a vessel dispatched also. Tour worship may look 
for the grain ordered, or at. least a part of it. In place of the 4000 ordered 
not more than 2050 pantiles were sent, there being no more at present to 
be had ; these were all sold to a third person, who not being able to get 
them off, threw up the purchase. The matters intrusted to Sander 
Leendertse [Glen] should have been dispatched by this time, except 
that in respect to the contemplated blockhouse of necessity to be set up 
and used, those of the respective courts ordered that it should be delivered 
again by Sander Leendertse to your honor next spring (God willing), or 
a contract and agreement be made with him on account thereof. Yester- 
day the </■ \ondt wr, Mr. Oldaten (?), arrived. I wish your honor had given 
order for more provisions, indeed I see not, who will help us to meat 
(for all have been called upon), and from what magazine to draw rations 
for them ; and though I well remember that your honor has given 
recommendation in this respect to the magistrates, and letters have been 
received by them, and excellent promises made ; nevertheless I also observe 
that they make a mere show of favorable inclination, and a superficial 
acceptance of short duration ; and at once the major part as soon as your 
honor is lost sight of, will artfully get rid of their * * and 
thrust the weight upon my neck (who have no remedy therefor or any 
means in hand) ; howbeit it is just what commonly happens with such 
shabby commissaries, having been too long in the world, your honor, not 
experienced the proof thereof at some time; nevertheless I shall 
do whatever is granted me within my short reach, and whatever shall fall 
within my capacity. There came here about 300 Mohawks, proposing 
{ut 'i and) to go to fight against the French Indians, in the meantime a 
a vessel (?) has set sail and the watch is doubled. What conversation was 
had with them to-day, your honor can perceive from the annexed 
document. ***** [Wanting] the magistrate 

must allow (although contra mandatwri), and thought highly needful to 
make a demand on the farmer of the excise for one or two hundred 
guilders, to be used for the purchase of wood and lights for the use of 
the watch, together with some food for the soldiers as necessity shall 
demand. The aforesaid Clabbort 2 is here also to-day ; on his arrival, I

spoke to him and asked for the said wheat; C. said, however, he did not 
believe he had it to spare. I see no chance elsewhere for doing anything. 
Herewith, worshipful sir, I commend myself to your honor's favor and 
yourself to that of Almighty God. To conclude, I am sir, etc. 
Done 19th of November, 1655. 

Propositions made by certain sachems (sachimaes) of the Mohawks 

before the clerk and those of the respective courts of Fort Orange 

and the colony of Rensselaerswyck, together with some burghers on 

the 19th of November, 1655. 

Present. — J. De Decker, Rutger Jacobsen, Andries Herpertsen, Volc- 
Jcert Jame (Douwe), J. Bp l Van Rensselaer, A. Van Curler, J. Van- 
Tw tiler, J. Hap [or Stoll~\, II. Jochemse, Philip Pr 68 [Schuyler], etc. 

The first proposition was a remembrance of the late affairs, and a re- 
newal of harmony and peace, including the French nation, together with 
the river Indians at the Esopus. Also they said they should go to war 
with the French Indians, and suspected the French of being opposed to their 
treaty, and their promises of being mingled with many lies ; hence their 
request was, that we would keep ourselves quiet and show neutrality. 
Thereupon they laid down a belt of seewant. The second and third pro- 
posals were in form of a complaint, that we did not entertain them in 
such a manner as they entertained us when visiting their land. * * 

* * [Wanting] that we did not provide the least thing for and 
mend their guns or other things, except they were asked payment and 
seewant therefor ; with other trifles of the like kind : they held that it 
was not altogether brotherly. Hereupon they gave two bundles or belts 
of seewant. 

Answer to the aforesaid propositions. 

To the first that we were inclined as yet and at all times to maintain 
with their chiefs a renewal of peace, faithfully and without breach, that 
we could do nothing having an opposite appearance, and recommended 
that they on their side should remain faithful, suggesting that with their 
fights and wars we should not meddle or concern ourselves as being ex- 
ternal to, and not concerning us. Hereupou were given them fifteen bars 
of lead. On the secoud complaint that we did not entertain and satisfy 
them as fully as they did us [we answered], that if one two, or three of 
them came as we did they should be properly lodged and accommodated, 
but that justice and law provided in this respect that none should be com- 
pelled to do so, since every person being free, must earn his own main- 
tenance, and that no one was holdeu to be another's servant for nothing, 
that such being the custom among us, no more complaints were to be 
made about it, as our other brothers did. Whereupon there was laid 
down and presented to them 25 pounds of gunpowder : all of which with 
their customary barbarian applause they received and accepted.

Most noble, worshipful, valiant and right honorable Heer general : 

Since my last intelligence delivered orally by Andries Herpertsen, touch- 
ing the offenses of the tapsters, to me recommended and given in charge, 
that your honor [it being your purpose to come hither] should think it 

Albany County Re* 

to begin Hie execution <jf my order and commission; the written 
countermand th< reof has been received, causing me to doubt and stand in 
ime your honor, in am further 

ling and wishes. In the meantime inasmuch as your 
written order (-onii iincs in existence, I request more enlarged 
commissions, or at least instructions how to conduct myself in case of cer- 
. or affront which I suspect will happen. Pro- 
vided your honor will appear with the first open water, you shall not for 
the present be troubled with any particular complaints, but they shall be 
postponed till then. I am teased by divers other [persons] and lately have 
been spoken to and petitioned by the wife of Dyckman, for some aid in 
ress, for the settling with certain traders for provisions ; I protest 
have no opportunity or means at hand from which to help her. 
But if your honor forbids any money to be levied from the farmer of the 
we ourselves shall suffer from the like destitution. Your honor 
will first make known the same, and give an order to levy fifty, sixty or 
an hundred guilders out of the farmer's money, for this purpose, or in- 
form me what, is to be done. I desire also, that an authentic copy of the 
instructions for th< bench of justice be made and sent to me. 

Herewith most noble, etc., Heer general, kissing your hand, I remain 
your worship's humble servant. 
10th January, 1656. 

Worshipful, noble, valiant, wise and right honorable Heer general and 
right honorable sirs of the council : 

All are here, God be praised, also the thirty Dutchmen, who, as rumor 
had it at Manhatans, were slaughtered, still live, and the report of the 
same post or messenger, of the infraction of the peace and the com- 
mencement of war between the two nations, is false. Heer general and 
right honorable council, as nothing material has occurred just now, I 
shall make no further complaints, especially as your worship proposes to 
arrive by the first open water. Only all are very desirous to under- 
the condition of things there, the news about which, by the bearer, 
we shall anxiously await. In the meantime we wish your worship and 
the right honorable council, a happy and more prosperous new year. 
We hope on the one hand that with the old year shall cease all sad rumors, 
adversities and calamities, and on the other hand that with the new 
year the rod of Dud's wrath shall also be cast into the fire, and at once 
with general tranquillity, prosperity and wealth be renewed. To this 
end we supplicate the Court of Heaven, that the divine Majesty will 
please to preside as well in the assemblies of the burgomasters, as of 
your worship and right honorable council, and that He will inspire the 
spirit of prudence wisdom and manly valor, and also bless their designs 
and expeditions with desired prosperity (?) to the glory especially of 
His holy name, and the welfare of this province and the inhabitants of 
me. Herewith Heer general and honorable sirs, we remain your 
worship's faithful servants of the court of Fort Orange and Beverwyck. 

16 January, 1656.

Worshipful, valiant and honorable Heer General and right honorable sirs 
of the council : 

On the ninth of September last, your honors' letters with the accom- 
panying placard came to hand, which, having examined, it was thought 
proper to publish two of them, viz : those for the combination of separate 
dwellings, and the farming out of the duties on peltries, the third relating 
to the duties, or payment of the twentieth penny on slaughtered animals, 
hogs, etc., we have for pregnant reasons withheld, judging it to be unrea- 
sonable to publish the same, it being apparent at this conjuncture of time, 
and on the occasion of excessive expense which the community has in- 
curred or shall hereafter incur by reason of the buildiug of the fort, 
blockhouse and other works connected with the same, together with the 
ransoming of prisoners; that nothing less than murmurs, opposition, and 
resistance would arise ; which we trust will be considered and examined 
by your honors with due deliberation. For the purpose of meeting the 
aforesaid expense, we convened the community, causing them to stand 
within, one by one, and inciting them to a free contribution, which ended 
to our reasonable contentment; upon the unwilling we imposed a certain 
tax. We have built a blockhouse according to resolution, ... feet square, 
and about a man's stature in height; receiving a communication from four 
qualified supervisors (j/emeemmanneii) that they desired to have it pulled 
down, and in place of it, contracted for a house with entablatures (gebinten), 
v the size of which and the reasons for it, the bearers of this, Sander 
Leendertse [Glen], and Dirck Janse Croon, our assistants and fellow com- 
missaries, will inform your honors and what is pertinent thereto ; further 
recital is therefore unnecessary. Wherefore we are necessitated and forced 
to find some new source of taxation ; though to make the best of it, to- 
gether with the first [tax] it cannot reach farther than a bare subsistence : 
we would petition your honors therefore, to solicit and dispose the inhabit- 
ants of the city of New Amsterdam to a liberal contribution for the 
building of a church began here by us, and truly will they less doubt and 
mistrust this, inasmuch as on the like and other occasions, and especially 
in regard to the church there, we and our citizens gave and contributed 
according to our ability. From your communication can easily be per- 
ceived the uncertainty of your worship's coming up, which we earnestly 
request, and esteem the presence of your honor's person and the influence 
of greater authority highly needful, and especially is it demanded for the 
introduction of new imposts, and chiefly in reference to opposing factions 
whose shoulders are unaccustomed to such burdens. Herewith goes a copy 
of a certain placard against the congregation of certain persons of the 
Lutheran sect, published and executed by us against the transgressors and 
disobedient ; we will await your earliest approbation, and otherwise request 
your honors' wise advice, how we must conduct ourselves on such an occa- 

Herewith, Heer general and right honorable sirs, we pray God to pro- 
sper and bless your honors' government, and remain your honors' trusty 
and faithful court of Fort Orange and Beverwyck. 

Hone at Fort Orange, lUth of March, 1G56. 

240 Albany County Il< 

Worshipful, valiant and honorable Heer general, and light honorable 
sirs of the council : 
The time having come again, that three of the existing commissaries, 
ierti [<;ien], Frans Barents* I istoor, and Volckert Janse 
[Douwe], according to custom, ought to be dismissed from their office, so, 
- . in accordance with the same custom, we desire to nominate and 
propose to your honors, a double number, viz: Abi . Jacob 

-M-hermerhoorn, Goosen Gerrir- [Van Schaick], Philip Prse. 
Schuyler, Cornelia Teunise Bos, and Evert Wendel, to the end that your 
honors will choose from the same, two others as ordinary, and one as 
extraordinary commissaries, as may be esteemed fittest according to your 
usual wise discretion and judgment. We are much surprised, that no 
to onr last letter, at least none on the subject of our expected 
collection there, has beeu received by us, indicating good success for it; in 
h< contracting for the Blockhouse church, and the excessive 
3 for the same, * * * * our expectation and hope 
in the commencement having been very greatly set thereon, in case of a 
failure of the same, we should be very much confounded and distressed; 
even if everything should turn out for the best, it would be very difficult 
to collect the remainder from the church here. Will your honors please 
to recollect the next article of our instructions; and if ever orders ought 
to be carried into effect, these certainly, on this occasion, would bring forth 
good results, and be accomplished in the right time. Your honors cannot 
be ignorant of the fact, that the consumption of wine and beer here ought 
immediately to be farmed out, without any communication respecting 
the same having hitherto been received; in consequence of this we are 
uncertain how to regulate ourselves. It is true that the clerk, Johan de 
Deckere, by a special mandate, given to him by the Heer general, has 
reported to us that the payment of the excise should not be suspended, 
but continued according to the order of the collector thereon ; likewise 
that no new farming out of the excise was to be made before the arrival of 
the Heer general or committee, with a recommendation, besides, to the 
collector, to keep a record of the wine and beer, consumed both in the 
colony, and in our jurisdiction ; to which, your honors, we would object, 
that it is uncertain whether the collector will accept of, or acquiesce in, 
the aforesaid continuation; and, if he would, it must be done on the fore- 
going conditions and extension, which has not been done by him hitherto, 
and would require no little knowledge and exertion to carry out. More- 
over, about three hundred guilders, not to be retained, have been paid by 
him on the promised excise money to relieve him from the promised con- 
ditions (?). * * At present, and before the close of the term [of 
the excise], it is impossible for any more money to be paid (so he says). 
arising from a registering of the beer, etc., consumed by the three public 
3j Soogemackelyck, Marg. Goosens [Van Schaick], and Arien Jans 
Van Leyden, but is more reduced than the remainder of the excise money 
would amount to, wherefore, according to what he says, no money should 
come into his hands, so that the aforesaid continuation in the future, 
would cause and bring forth nothing, but a mere pretense. If, on the 
contrary, the collector shall decline or refuse the aforesaid registry, and 
further, if the honorable clerk, De Deckere, be impracticable, then your 
honors' orders, highly necessary in respect to that, or what is much better, 
your worship's immediate arrival in person, will be waited for and

expected. Herewith, etc., your honors' obedieut and faithful sei 
the court of Fort Orange and Beverwyck. 
Sent the 8th of April, 1656. 

Noble, worshipful, valiant, wise, and right honorable sirs. Gentlemen : 

In accordance with your honors' order to apprehend and positively 
to send away the public tapsters, P r Ariensen, alias Soogemackelyck, and 
Arien Janse Van Leyden. the business was so directed by me, that the 
aforesaid P r Ariensen had notice to come to my house, and, of course, was 
detained; I guarded him with some soldiers till evening, when Jan 
Baptist Van Rensselaer, with the schouf, of the colony, appeared before 
me, requesting that the prisoner might be set free, on representation that 
he, Rensselaer, was ready to interpose and answer for him; which by me, 
being declined, I was asked if he (the intervenient) was not considered 
sufficient ; my answer was that his sufficiency or insufficiency was not 
disputed, but that my order was simply to send the prisoner away, and 
that if he wished to answer for him, he could do so; finally he requested 
ilico et stante pede a copy of my order and commission, but this was 
denied him ; whereupon threatening (?) me with divers mischiefs, etc., 
he delivered a protest and therewith departed. This day being Wednes- 
day, I sent the sloop (Jacht) to the other side of the river, and, with 
Rutger Jacobsen, having examined the boards, I was with the sloop's 
boat, for some tools for the vessel and for my own service, having like- 
wise two soldiers to keep up a constant watch; rowed to the fort again to 
catch in the trap the rat who had as yet not been taken ; in the mean- 
time, let the men on sloop busy themselves loading the boards; the plan, 
hitherto so successful, was, by the disobedience and carelessness of those 
boobies, the boatmen and soldiers, to my extreme distress and vexation, 
shamefully spoiled. Firstly. — By the boatmen, who came to me in the 
evening insisting on the boat, saying that it was necessary for getting in 
the rest of the boards in a proper manner at night, so I, crediting them, 
yielded, with the express and reiterated order nevertheless, that the boat, 
before the next morning, at least by day break, should be brought to the 
fort, my intention being to carry the prisoner then, immediately, to the 
sloop ; in the meantime, that he might be well watched and securely 
kept, Imadehimsleep in my bed and by myside; but inquiring in the morn- 
ing, I could hear of neither boat nor boatmen, without .which I could not get to 
the sloop unless some other vessel was at hand. Owing to the car./ 
of the three soldiers and my nigger, to whom the keeping and watch were 
intrusted, he was suffered in their presence to run away. I was made 
aware of his escape, and speedily was at the heels of the fugitive, aud 
it would not have been in vain, except that he retired and took refuge 
in the house of the aforesaid Rensselaer : nevertheless, I addressed him 
there, and admonished him to go back with me, otherwise it would go 
hard with him; yet he refused, but said if I took the other tapsters, then 
he would willingly go with me; on the other hand, came Johannes Van 
Twiller, also (Rensselaer not being at home, but with some of his com- 
panions last night at the house of Arian Janse [Van Leyden] had watched 
with their guns and awaited my coming there), and asked what I wanted 
there; my answer was, that 1 wished to bring the prisoner away from 
there; he replied, that thatshould by no means be; being alone and having 
no help nor soldiers there present, and not seeing how I could conveniently

in to iny hon it to he in the I 

absurd, that there should be an asylum in the mid.-! 
fcion for fugiti free place foi d usurpations, 

as have now lately existed in regard to Do Hulter's widow, who, whilst 
dwelling in our fort, would hold a public sale of some wood without con- 
me therein, and regardless of my rights with respect to the pay- 
' the auction - upon a registry and interdict being made to 

her. to hold no public sale in our jurisdiction without consulting me, or

the moi the future, not so much through the impulse of the 

people themselves ac indeed through the inducements and persuasions of 
certain bullies iters who have the management of the colony [of 

ck], unless a fitting and timely order be made therefor 
by your honors, according to your wise discretion. I should have re- 
paired to the house of Alien Janse Van Leyden to-day, with proper 
bat the aforesaid Eensselaer (such hypocrisy is indeed 
suspicious) came to my I day evening, saying that if I would 

keep quiet, he would be answerable for the aforesaid persons, and, with 
the fir.-- I nhatans, would go thither; considering that there was 

not much danger in this, and moreover that some of them had escaped, 
I acquiesced in the proposal, leaving the disputes with the other people to 
your honor. The bellweathers being there, your honor understands that 
the public tapsters and others, who have not been as yet taken, must 
appear there also. Be pleased to send up more soldiers, and among them 
one or two who are not nice about taking hold of a man, that the people 
may be intimidated by numbers, and ali bloodshed and mischief may be 
prevented. I have spoken to Dyckman's wife, and requested to have her 
husband sent to Manhatans, to go to Holland on the warship, which she could 
hardly make up her mind to, inclining to speak about the matter herself 
with your honor, perceiving which, I advised her that the sooner she does it 
the better, and to take her husband with her, where she will learn the 
time thereof [departure]. In the meantime having commended your 
honor to the protection and defense of the Almighty, with my re?pects, I 
conclude, as your honor's humble servant. 
May, 1656. 

In accordance with the command and order, of date loth of May last, 
to me, the subscriber, given and granted, by the director general, Petrus 
Siuyvesant, to apprehend, and securely to send away, the persons of Pieter 
Adriaens. n. alias Soogemackelyck. and Arien Janse Van Leyden, both 
tapsters, I, Johan De Dcckere, clerk at Fort Orange, on the 24th 
following, brought the person of said Soogemackelyck to my house and 
detained him there; through the carelessness of certain soldiers, to whose 
keeping he was intrusted, he escaped the following day and fled : in the 
meantime, watching for an opportunity to apprehend in like manuer the 
aforesaid Arien Janse, this evening Mr. Jan Baptist Van Rensselaer came 
t" my house and put the question, whether I would keep quiet and not 
send away said tapsters, if so. he promised, iu such case, personally to 
repair to Manhatans, by the first sloop, declaring that the aforesaid per- 
bods u - a- H was throng] - or that 

Albany County Records. 243 

he would be answerable for them, which was acquiesced iu by me for the 
following reasons: First. — Because the aforesaid Soogemackelyck, 
having fled, would perhaps remain away for some time. Second. — From 
fear of shedding blood ; because, as was reported, the aforesaid Rensselaer, 
with some of his colleagues, passing tbe night watching at the house of 
said Arien Janse, waited and watched for mv coming there, from which 
it is easy to see what might follow. And Lastly. — In consequence of 
the aforesaid free proposal, considering that the commotion, whilst they 
were in durance, the outworkings also of their desires, would indeed be 
put to rest and subjection. Notwithstanding this, on the 29th of this 
mouth, having received a certain letter from the said director general, of 
the date 2od of May, past, containing a renewal of my aforesaid order to 
send away also besides the aforesaid two persons, Marg. Goossens [Van 
Schaick] ; so I, Johan De Deckere aforesaid, in conformity to the afore- 
said reiterated order and commission, followed by three soldiers and the 
afternamed witnesses, found myself before the house of Marg. Goossens, 
but the door not being opened, from thence, I repaired to the houses of 
Pieter Ariensen and Arien Janse Van Leyden, and there finding the 
aforesaid Rensselaer with his colleagues, together with the schqut and 
secretary of the colony [of Reusselaerswyck], and in the presence of them 
all, in the name and behalf of the director general and council of New 
Netherland, I warned, admonished and commanded the aforesaid tapsters, 
immediately, to go with me, and commit themselves into my hands and 
keeping; whereupon they separately answered as before, '•'• There sits my 
lord," pointing to the aforesaid Rensselaer, " who will answer for me; " 
and said Rensselaer, in like manner acquiesced in the same, not suffering 
the tapsters to go with me. Whereupon, I, the clerk aforesaid, as well 
against the aforesaid Rensselaer and colleagues, as against said tapsters, 
respectively, in the name, etc., as before, protested in respect to all costs, 
damage and interests, which the honorable [W. I.] company, through 
their opposition, disobedience and non-compliance with the excise, have 
suffered, and may hereafter suffer, to be reclaimed and recovered, as shall 
be found reasonable. 

Done and protested on the 31st day of May, 1656, in presence of Rut- 
ger Jacobsen, Andries Herpertsen, and Jacob Schermerhooren, as wit- 
nesses hereto invited. 

J. De Deckere, 1656. 

According to the order and mandates of the director general and coun- 
cil of New Netherland, of date 28th of June, 165(3, to Mr. Rensselaer and 
those of the court of the colony [of Rensselaerswyck], to request that the 
placard, respecting the tenths, may be published in the colony, I, Johan 
De Deckere, chief clerk at Fort Orange, repaired with the afternamed 
witnesses, to the session and meeting of the court aforesaid, and said order 
introduced in the name, etc., as before, and requested, that they would 
please cause said placard to be published among them, as was done by us; 
whereupon Mr. Rensselaer answered : " We are not obligated, we and 
mine cannot grant it." 

Thus done, introduced and answer received on the 6th of July, 1656, 
• nee of Rutger Jacobsen, and Dirk Janse Croon, as witnesses to 
this iu .
