PATENTS for Tempering Steel without the aid of any liqnida, received the only award 
at the Great National Implement Trial, held at Aubnrn, in 1866. They possess the fol- 
lowing superior qualities : ^ ,, , 

1. They are made with a fine Cutlery Temper at the edges. 

2. They hold only a Spring Temper at the center and at the heel. 

3. They are warranted perfectly uniform, every knife being exactly alike in temper. 
4.' We warrant they can he ground from 8 to 10 times without losing their cutting 

6. Finally, we will warrant them to cut flrom 40 to 50 acres of grain or grass vi-ithout 
being once ground. 

We are the sole Manufacturers of these Knives in the United States. Each Knife' 
hereafter will bear our 


We are now making PliANE IRONS under this new process of tempering ;—- 
every Iron bears our Clover-Leaf Trade-Mark, and we hereby authorize all Hardware 
Sealers to allow their customers to try our " Plane Irons," and if not satisfactory, refund- 
price paid, and charge Irons back to us.

In presenting the initial number of the " Gazetteet and Directory 
of Tompkins County" to the public, the publisher desires to return 
his sincere thanks to all who have so kindly assisted in obtaining 
the valuable information which it contains, and without whose aid 
it would have been impossible to have collected, in the brief space 
of time in which it is essential that all such works' should be com- 
pleted. Especially are our thanks due to the several editors of 
the Ithaca Journal, Ithaca Democrat, Tompkins Co. Sentinel, The 
Oroton Journal and the Dry den Weekly News, for the uniform kind- 
ness which has been evinced in calling public attention to the 
author's efforts ; and to them and many other gentlemen of Tomp- 
kins County, for essential aid in furnishing material for the work. 
We have also drawn largely from " French's Gazetteer of the State 
of New York," and some from Stone and Stewart's " Atlas of 
Tompkins Co.," and Spence Spencer's "Head Waters of Cayuga 

When it is known that time, equal to nearly three years' labor, if 
done by one man, has been devoted to the canvass, and the great 
difficulty many times experienced by the agents in collecting the 
•necessary information, it is believed our patrons will willingly ex- 
cuse any seemingly short-comings in the completeness of the 

The advertisers represent many of the leading business men 
and firms of the County, and we most cheerfully commend them 


all to the patronage of those under whose observation these pages 
may come. 

So complete a canvass of this County for a Business Directory, 
and the additions of farmers' names, together with the number of 
acres owned or leased by each, and their post office addresses, has 
never been attempted by any other publisher. 

That errors may have occurred in so great a number of names 
and dates as are here given, is probable, and that names have been 
omitted that should have been inserted is quite certain. We can 
only say that we have exercised more than ordinary diligence and 
care in this difficult and complicated feature of book-making. To 
such as feel aggrieved in consequence of error or omission', we beg 
pardon, and ask the indulgence of the reader in marking such as 
had been observed in the subsequent reading of the proofs, and 
which are noted in the Errata, following the Introduction. 

The Map of the County was engraved with great care by Messrs. 
" Weed, Parsons & Co.," of Albany, and, it is believed, will prove 
a valuable acquisition to tbe work. 

With thanks to friends generally, we leave our work to secure 
the favor which earnest endeavor ever wins from a discriminating 
business public. 





County.— On page 25, sixth line, for "A. Critten," read "N, Crittenden." 

Iianslng —Moses and Nicholas Se Few settled at the month of Salmon Creek a 
year or two previous to Silas Ludlow, or about 1190-91. At that time land was sold for 
eighteen cents per acre. Silas Ludlow sailed from Southampton, Long Island, In a 
sloop, to the Mohawk Elver, from thence by a batteaux, (carrying their goods where 
the water was too low to float their craft,) to Oneida Lake, np Seneca Biver, and Cayuga 
Lake, to Ithaca. 

Samuel Baker, of Westchester Co., came on with his hired man about 1793. They com- 
menced clearing the land, and erected a small bark cabin about twelve feet square. 
While engaged at chopping one day, about two weeks after their arrival, they were sur- 
prised by the sound o^ axes to the eastward. Supposing they were the only white men 
in the vicinity, they started in the direction from whence the sound proceeded, on a 
reconnoitering expedition. They were met about half way by Capt. Ben^ah Strong, and 
his son, who had located on Salmon Creek, and who also supposed they were the only 
white men in the vicinity, and they were then on their way .to investigate the source of 
the sound of axes to the westward. Samuel Baker was the flrst blacksmith in town,— 
The first church was built of logs at Lanslngville.

WM., (South Danby,) manuf. of sleighs and farmer 60." 

Dryden.— On page 147, " LAMBBESOIsr, JOHN N., (West Dryden,) farmer 25," has 
85 acres instead of 25, and should have been capitalized as a subscriber, 

Groton.— On page 193, for "EKITENDEN, DANIEL," read "CHITTENDEN, 

On page 197, for " MATINBEEG, THEODOEE," read " MALMBEEG, THBODOEE." 

ItUaea.— On page 179, "PAETENHEmEE, P. L," should be " PAETENHEIMEE, 
P. J," 

On page 165, after " Tompkins Co, National Bank," " E, J. Partenheimer, cashier," 
should be " P. J. Partenheimer." *

Fonrers Sc Pennoyer, Carriage 
manufacturers, at Groton, publish an ad- 
vertisement on page 183. Groton is noted 
for its manufacture of carriages. Farmers 
and others come here from many miles 
around, when they want a good buggy or 
wagon at a moderate price. This firm em- 
ploys good workmen, and consequently 
can offer good bargains to their customers. 

Barke, Fltzslmons, Bone & 
Co., Importers, Jobbers and Betailers of

53 Main street, Rochester, publish a card 
on page 183. This House was established 
in 1849, since which time its success has 
been uninterrupted, each year increasing its 
amount of business. Their annnal sales 
amount to the enormous sum of near 
$1,600,000, their trade extending from the 
Fastem portions of the State to the " Far 
West." Occupying, as they do, fully 23,000 
feet of flooring in actual business depart- 
ments, every portion of which is crowded 
with immense piles of goods from foreign 
countries, as well as oi^domestic mannfac- 
ture, renders the facilities of this house for 
Jobbing equal to any in the conntry. The 
firm are also proprietors of the " Genesee 
Falls Woolen Mills," where they mannfac- 
ture 100,000 yards of goods annually. See 
advertisement, colored page 183. 

TVm. Cbandler, Undertaker, at Tra-

Tbe Ithaca Journal, published in 
Ithaca, by Hon. John H. Selkreg, is a first 
class family newspaper, and an able advo- 
cate of the local interests of the village and 
surrounding country. It was the first pa- 
per pnbliished in Tompkins County, having 
been established July 4, 1815, as The Seneca 
BepiMiean, by Jonathan Ingersoll. Since 
then, and until 1841 or '42, (when Mr. Selk- 
reg became proprietor.) the paper had 
experienced numerous changes in name as 
well as owners. Since Mr. Selkreg became 
proprietor, it has continually increased in 
circulation, till it now constitutes an ex- 
cellent advertising medium for those who 
act the part of wisdom and avail themselves 
of its columns. In November, 1867, the office 
was destroyed by fire, but the paper was 
regularly issued from the "Democrat" 
office, until Jan. 1, of the present year, at 
which time Mr. Selkreg had established an 
entirely new office, with a jobbing depart- 
ment well and liberally supplied with type, 
presses, etc., and is capable of turning out 
superior work in that line. Mr. Selkreg is 
a veteran "Knight of the Quill," and at pres- 
ent represents his district in the Assembly, 
an ofuce he has held for several terms, an 
evidence of the esteem and confiience 
reposed in him. He is also president of 
the "Ithaca Calendar Clock Company." 
Mr. Wesley Hooker, his associate editor, is 
a man of good executive ability, and is well 
qualified for the position he holds. Mr. 
Hooker also holds the office of Deputy Col- 
lector U. S. Internal Revenue. See adver- 
tisement, page 202. 

Tbe Groton Carriage Works, S. 
S. Williams, proprietor, at Groton, turns 
out some of the most elegant and dnrable 
work to be found in the State. Mr. Wil- 
liams desires to eall especial attention to 
his Platform Spring Wagons, wUch he is 
now taming out largely. As he invariably 
uses only the best of timber and iron in 
the manufacture of his work, purchasers 
may rely on getting their money's worth. 
We refer the reader, for further particulars 
to the advertisement on page 200. 



Tbe A.nbarn File Works, situated

'file Reynold's Steel Temper- 
ing Wotk.a, Reynolds, Barber & Co., 

Proprietors, at Auburn, are largely engaged 
in the manufacture of Reaper and Mower 
Knives, Plane Irons, Chisels, &c. The 
process by which they temper steel is a pe- 
culiar one, and, as patented by Mr. Rey- 
nolds, is the result of over forty years 
labor. This gentleman always worked on 
the plan that tempering steel was simply 
changing it from tiiSmna to a gran-mar 
state. Hecertainly has succeeded in pro- 
dncing a finer granulation (temper) than 
has ever before been produced. Messrs. 
Reynolds, Barber & Co. control the patents 
for these processes, and are applying them 
snccessfutly in all their manufectures.— 
Their establishment is capable of turning 
out an immense amount of work, yet their 
orders are now, and have heen for some 
monthB,accumulating far in advance of their 
present ability to supply; a circumstance 
which they will not long allow to be the

distant when all Mower and Reaper Facto- 
ries and farmers will use their improved 
sections. See their advertisement on page

mothers. Read This !— So says Dr. 
G. T. Taft & Co., of Seneca Falls. In their 
advertisement on page 20, they desire to 
inform yon of the wonderful qualities of 
their " Oriental Syrup," for children. We 
have heard of many cases where this valua- 
ble medicine has given great relief. They 
are also proprietors of "Rosenberger's 
Balm of Gilead Ointment," for eld sores, 
ulcers, rheumatism, burns, chilblains, piles, 
&c., and for galls, or wounds on horses, it 
is unsurpassed. 



Are your children restless, irritable, wakeflil, feverish f Are they cutting teeth? Are 
the gums red and painflil f Have they diarrhoea f Have they fits or spasms f If so, 


It is the only Syrup or Cordial, or CHILD MEDICINE in market free from Opium, Tor- 
phine, or Paragoric. These you can't give : or, at least, you ought not to. TL jy de- 
stroy the functions of the BRAIN: the child grows pale : its eyes grow wild ; its flesh 
becomes soft ; it loses its mind ; it becomes an Idiot. Mothers, these are facts I To be 
convinced, try it. The Oriental Sjrrap contains NONE of those poisons. It is per- 
fectly harmless. It is soothing — quieting. The child sleeps sweetly, and awakes refresh- 
ed and lively. The teeth penetrate the gums without pain. It is good for aged and ner- 
vous people. TKYIT.

THIS COUNTY, named in honor of Governor Daniel D. 
Tompkins, was formed from Cayuga and Seneca, April 17, 1817 ; 
the towns of Hector, Ulysses and Covert, being taken from Seneca, 
and the towns of Dryden, and parts of Locke and Genoa, from 
Cayuga County. That part of Locke set off to Tompkins was 
named Division, now Groton ; and the part taken from Genoa was 
called Lansing. Three towns, viz : Caroline, Danhy and Cayuta, 
were annexed from Tioga County, March 22, 1822. The name of 
the town of Cayuta was subsequently changed to Newfield. A 
narrow strip was taken from the west side of Newfield, and an- 
nexed to the town of Catherin«, Chemung County, in 1853; and 
April 17, 1854, the County of Schuyler was erected, and the town 
of Hector taken from Tompkins and annexed to Schuyler. 

The County lies around the head of Cayuga Lake, south-west of 
the center of the State; is centrally distant from Albany about one 
hundred and forty miles, and contains 277,730f acres, of which 
206,514 acres are cultivated, and in 1865, had a population of 

The water shed between Cayuga Lake and Tioughnioga River 
occupies the east border, and that between the same lake and Sus- 
quehanna River, the south border of the Csunty. The north half 
of the County is separated into two distinct parts by the deep val- 
ley of Cayuga Lake, which is some 700 feet below the ridges on 
either side. The east portion, declining toward the north, gradu- 
ally loses its hilly character, and spreads out into the beautifully roll- 
ing lands so common in Central New York. West of the lake the 
land does not lessen in height within the limits of the County ; but 


the rough, broken hills, change into smooth ridges, with long grad- 
ual slopes. At the head of ihe lake,, a tract of land nearly level, 
two miles long and one and a-taalf wide, extends south from the lake 
shore, and from this the valley of Cayuga Inlet opens to the south- 
west, and the narrow gorge of Six Mile Creek, to the south- 

This plain is surrounded on three sid^sy the east, south and west, 
by hills ascending rather abruptly fromi four to seven hundred feet; 
and on this plain and the surrounding hilk, the village of Ithaca iS' 
built. The soil of this bottom land i» a deep rich alluvium, and 
was probably once covered by the waters of the lake. 

The deep Valley of Cayuga Lake aSk^As a fine opportunity to 
examine the geological structure of thisiregion, CTpon the shore, 
in the extreme north part of the County, are found the Hamilton 
Shales, the lowest rock in the County. Next aboye them on the 
shore appear the Tully Limestone, Geuesee iBlate and Portage and 
Ithaca Shales and Sandstone. 

The Tully limestone furnishes an abundance of linoe ; huge frag- 
ments of this rock are found scattered over the land several hun- 
dred feet above the regular veins of the rock, showing that somfe 
great force had been in operation here at some former period. The 
Genesee slate is about 100 feet thick, and the Portage group 300. 
The summits of all the hills are formed of the rocks belonging to 
the Chemung group, usually covered deep with drift deposits. — 
There are several deposits of marl in the marshy ground at the 
head of the lake, and about six miles south of Ithaca there is an 
extensive bed ; also several small ones near Newfield. The streams 
in their course from the table lands to the lake, have worn deep 
channels into the rocks ; and waterfalls, which once were; probably, 
at the face of the bluds, have receded one to two miles, forming 
below deep, rocky chasms, bordered by perpendiculau* walls. As 
the rocks are composed of strata of different degrees of hardness, 
the water ha» worn them irregularly — the soft and yielding shales 
generally forming a declining surface, while the hard and compact 
limestone retains its perpendicular form. 

The Taghkanic Falls, below Tr umansburg, have receded something 
more than a miJe from the lake. In its passage, the stream first 
produced a series of fells and rapids, but finally receded so as to 
form but a single fall. This is caused by the higher strata being 
so much harder than those below, that a firm table is formed of 
these, while those below are undermined. About a mile north of 
these falls is a cascade, where, from the absence of a resisting stratum 
at the surface, the rock has been worn down in a continuous slope. 

The principal streams in the County are Salmon Creek, which, 
rising in Oayuga County, flows south through the town of Lansing, 


to the Lake, into which it empties, about eight miles below Ithaca. 
Fall Creek, which also takes its rise in Cayuga County, flowing 
south-westerly in a tortuous course through Groton, Dryden and 
Ithaca, frequently near its mouth, over sharp precipices, forming beau- 
tiful cascades and rapids ; it empties its waters at the head of Cayuga 
Lake. Cascadilla Creek, rising in the town of Dryden, and flowing 
westerly, empties its waters into Cayuga Inlet, within the limits of 
the village of Ithaca. Six Mile Creek, the tributaries of which take 
their rise, some in Dryden and some in Caroline, empties into 
Cayuga Inlet, within the village of lUiaca. Enfield Creek, rising 
in Enfield, flows south-easterly into Cayuga Inlet. Buttermilk 
Creek, rising in Danby, flows north-westerly into the same stream. 
Cayuga Inlet, takes its rise in Tioga County, and .flowing north- 
ward in a somewhat tortuous course, through Danby, Newfield and 
Ithaca, finds its outlet at the.head of Cayuga Lake. Aft;er it reaches 
the lowlands at the head of the lake, the Inlet is a deep, sluggish 
stream, and for nearly a mile above its mouth is of sufficient capaci- 
ty to float the steamers which ply between Ithaca and Cayuga. 
Taghkanic Creek, rising in Schuyler County, flows north-easterly 
through Ulysses to the lake on the west side, nearly opposite Sal- 
mon Creek. There are also several branches of Owego Creek, and 
other small streams, which flow south, and empty into the Susque- 
hanna River. Several other small streams find their way through 
deep narrow gorges to the waters of Cayuga Lake. 

These streams are nearly all rapid, clear and cold, being fed by 
springs, and were formerly well stocked with brook trout, and even 
now the skillful disciple of Walton, who has the patience and nerve, 
to follow their various windings, and can throw a fly with precision, 
will often find, 

" Just where the water curling 'round 
Some old black roet, draws near his eye. 
Each worm, and gnat, or floating fly, 
An " Old SetUer" thatwould gladden rthe heart 
of i^r Isaac himself." 

The numerous cascades upon these streams, form one of the most 
peculiar and pleasing features of the landscape, varying in magni- 
tude and beauty, each one having its own particular attraction, to 
view the beauties of which, so many tourists, artists and pleasure 
seekers, have visited this picturesque and beautiful part of our State. 

The soil in the north part is generally a gravelly or clayey loam, 
formed by the drift deposits ; while that in the south is a gravelly 
or slaty loam, derived from disintegration. It is all best adapted 
to grazing. In the north part the people are generally engaged in 
grain raising. Wheat, which for many years has suffered by the 
midge, is again forming the staple production. In the southern 


towns, the principal branches of agriculture pursued are stock rais- 
ing and dairying. Oats are very extensively grown throughout 
the County, but the surest and most profitable crop is corn. The 
influence of temperature upon this crop is strikingly illustrated in 
tables and statements prepared by Hon. Ezra Cornell, and reported 
to, and published by, the New York State Agricultural Society in 
1860, showing that the greater the altitude of the land above the 
level of Cayuga Lake, and consequently the lower degree of tem- 
perature, the less the average bushels of corn produced per acre. 
This report also exhibits the improvement in the cattle of the 
County, as shown by the steady increase in the products of the 
dairies for a series of years, since the introduction of Short Horns 
and Devons into the County, 

The first full blood Durham was brought into the County in 1840. 
In 1845, the average product of butter per cow, in the County, was 
only 102 lbs; In 1850, it was 109 lbs. per cow; in 1855, it was 
113 lbs., and in 1860, it was 128 lbs., per cow ; showing an in- 
crease of twenty-five per cent, in the value of the cattle of the 
County for dairy purposes, since the introduction of Short 
Horns and Devons ; and it is fair to presume that their value 
for the shambles has been increased to an equal amount. There 
are now several individual dairies whose average is two hundred 
pounds per cow ; and one entire school district has averaged one 
hundred and sixty-five lbs. per cow. It is but fair to say, that 
Tompkins County is principally indebted for this improvement to 
the efforts of Mr. Cornell, aided by a few public spirited men, 
among whom may be mentioned Joseph McGraw, Jr., A. B. Ben- 
ham, and J. & M. Robinson of Dryden, John P. Hart, of Groton, 
David Crocker, of Lansing, William Mitchell and Levi and Lyman 
Williams, of Ithaca. 

Mr. Cornell has now a large herd, (seventy-five to a hundred, we 
believe,) of Short Horns and Devons, which will compare favora- 
bly with any in the State. Some two or three years ago, he sold 
one of his calves, one year old, for three thousand dollars, to go to 
England; a circumstance which speaks well for the quality of his 

There is also a marked improvement in horses and sheep ; some 
of the finest horses in the State are raised in this County. 

That portion of the County lying near the lake is remarkably 
adaptedtothegrowthof fruit of all kinds; and large quantities 
of a very superior quality are annually produced. The eai-ly vari- 
eties of grapes are also grown with great success in the immediate 
vicinity of the lake. 

The Tompkins County Agricultural Society was organized in 
1841, and the Fairs have since been held annually at Ithaca. In 
1856 their present buildings were erected, at a cost (with the 


grounds,) of about $15,000. The Fair Grround is located on the 
flat in the north part of the Village. The Fair House is 150 by 
100 feet ; tvro stories, with an observatory. The grounds are en- 
closed with tight board fences, and contain a good half-mile track. 
The present principal oflicers are J. B. Albright, President ; O. B. 
Curren, Treasurer; A. Critten, Secretary. The latter has held the 
office of Secretary for nearly twenty years. The Fairs have been 
a success, and the Society is now in a flourishing condition. 

The County Seat is located at the village of Ithaca. The Court 
House is a brick edifice, built upon a fine lot near the center of the 
village. The act of incorporation fixed the Court House at Ithaca, 
the exact locality to be designated by the Surveyor General, or, if 
he neglected to do it, by the judges of the County Court. Unless 
a site was conveyed to the Supervisors, and $7,000 secured to be 
paid, the County was to be reannexed to the counties from whence 
it was taken. Luther Gere, Wm. R. CoUins and Daniel Bates, 
were appointed to superintend the erection of the County buUdings. 
The first County officers were Oliver C.'Comstock, First Judge ;* 
Archer Green, Cleric; Arthur S. Johnson, Deputy Clerk ; Henry 
Bloom, Sheriff; and Andrew D. W. Bruyn, Surrogate; David 
Woodcock, District Attorney; Charles Bingham, Master in Chan- 
cery and \gt Assistant Justice; Wm. R. Collins and John Ludlow, 
Coroners; Wm. R. Collins, Under Sheriff; Spenoer Crarj, Deputy 
Sheriff. The first Justices of the Peace in 1817 were : W. Wig- 
ton, Arthur S. Johnson, Eliakim Acany, A. D. W. Bruyn, Henry 
Bloom, Charles Bingham, Nathaniel Hallock, John Sutton, Simeon 
P. Strong, Joseph Goodwin, John Bowman, Jonathan Bennett, 
Samuel Love, John Ellis, Wm. Martin, Peter Rappleye, Chester 
Cobome, Thomas White, Richard Smith, H. D. Barto, Caleb 
Smith, Parley Whitmore, James Weaver, Stephen Woodworth, 
Lewis Lookers, John Bowker, Charles Kelly, C. Brown 2nd, James 
Colegrove and Abijah Miller. 

The jail, contiguous to the Court House, is a well built stone 
edifice, with ample accommodations for the health of the prisoners. 
The cells are clean and well ventilated. The County Clerk's office 
is a fire proof brick building, fronting on Tioga street. 

The County Poor House is situated upon a farm of 100 acres in 
Ulysses, six miles north-west of Ithaca. We take the following 
extracts from the report of the Superintendent of the poor for 

" The whole number of paupers in Poor House on the 15th of 
November, 1867, was 49. The number of paupers received into

The early history of Tompkins County is substantially a repe- 
tition of the history of most of the counties of Western New York. 
During the Revolution, with the exception of patches here and 
there cultivated by the Indians, it was an unbroken wilderness. 
The Indians hunted and fished, and wooed or made war, as seemed to 
them good, aad their light canoes were the only crafl that parted 
the waters of our beautiful lakes. But as the ever restless white 
man began to encroach upon th^ir hunting grounds, and spy out the 
land, their jealousies were aroused, and acts of hostility followed. 

Influenced by presents and promises made by British agents and 
Tory adherents, five of the six confederated Indian tribes commenc- 
ed the most inhuman barbarities along the north-western frontier. 
The Oneidas alone remained friendly to the American cause. 

The cold-blsoded massacres at Wyoming, Cherry Valley, and 
other points, aroused Congress to the necessity of doing something 
to check and punish the authors of these indiscriminate butcheries, 
and in 1779, they placed three thousand Continental troops under 
the command of General Sullivan for this purpose. 

Mr. Goodwin, in his Pioneer History of Cortland County, says, 
" General Sullivan marched from Eastern Pennsylvania, and arrived 
with his army at Wyoming on the 24th day of June. * The enemy 
having fled before him, and learning that they were committing 
outrages of the grossest "character, he determined to pursue, and if 
possible drive them from the country. 

"On the 31st of July, he left with his forces for the Indian settle- 
ments further up the Susquehanna. His stores and artillery were 
conveyed up the river in one hundred and fifty boats, and presented 
a grand and imposing appearance. The horses, two thousand in 
number, as they moved along in single file, formed a continuous 
line of six miles in length. The forces arrived at Tioga Point on 
the 11th of August, and were joined by General Clinton on the22d, 
he having marched from Mohawk, with a detachment of one thou- 
sand troops. 

"The Indians, under Brant and Butler, had taken a position near 
Newtown, where they had strongly entrenched themselves, deter- 
mined to resist the advance of Sullivan. 


"After a severe battle, the Indians were routed, and Sullivan con- 
tinued his march, passing a little west of Ithaca, through the town 
of Hector, and penetrated as far west as Conesus Lake, in the Genfe- 
see Valley, destroying along his route all the Indian villages, or- 
chards^tand cornfields. On his return march, at the outlet of Sene- 
ca Lake, he detached Col. Zebulon Butler, with the Rifle Corps 
and five hundred men, to the east side of Cayuga Lake, to lay waste 
the Indian settlements there ; and, on the next day, Lieut. Col. 
'Dearborn was detached, with two hundred men, for the purpose of 
destroying a settlement south of the Lake, which occupied the nar- 
row valley of Six Mile Creek, now covered by the waters of Hal- 
sey's mill dam, and another located about two miles up the Cayu- 
ga Inlet. There .were three considerable villages on the East 
shore of the lake, one of which was the capital, or chief village of 
the Cayugas, besides numerous smaller settlements scattered along 
the banks at various distances. These were all burned, and their 
orchards and corn-fields destroyed." 

Mr. Goodwin says, " On the opposite side of the lake, where the 
Taghkanic Creek empties into the Tiohero, or Cayuga Lake, the 
Indians had built a small town, and were growing corn, beans and 
potatoes on the rich flats. They had also apple trees of two and a 
half centuries growth. This little town, called by the natives after 
the stream on which itwasloeated, escaped the notice of Col Butler." 

" There was another settlement about six miles south-west of 
Taghkanic, near the present village of Waterburgh, which, from its 
back location, was not discovered by either of the detachments 
which Gen. Sullivan had sent out to make havoc with the Indian 

This flying visit of Sullivan and his little army, is, as far as 
known, the first invasion made by the whites into tWs country. In 
1788, eleven men, with two Delaware Indians for guides, left King- 
ston, on the Hudson River, to explore the country west of the 
Susquehanna, with the intention of selecting a future home ; but 
they returned after an absence of about six weeks, without making 
a location. 

In April of the next year, three of their number, not satisfied 
with the result of their first visit, determined again to seek for a 
home in the west. On the east side of the flat, at the head of Cayu- 
ga Lake, the Indians had cleared away the thorn and hazel bushes 
from several patches for cultivation, and here these three pioneers 
of Tompkins County, Jacob Yaple, Isaac Dumon Snd Peter Hine- 
paw, selected four hundred acres, embracing so much of the valley 
as lies east of Tioga street, in the village of Ithaca, as their future 

Having planted some corn in the " Indian clearings," they left a 
younger brother of Jacob Yaple to take care of it, and returned to 


their former homes. In September following, they returned with 
their families, bringing with them a few articles of necessary house- 
hold furniture, some farming utensils, and a few hogs, sheep, cattle 
and horses. They are reported to have been nineteen days in 
making the journey from Owego to Ithaca, a distance of twenty- 
nine miles. 

The Yaple family was composed of Jacob Yaple, his wife, and 
three children, and John Yaple, a younger brother of Jacob, about 
twenty years old. The Dumon family consisted of Isaac Dumon, 
his wife, and three children, and John Dumon and his wife, who had 
then lately been married. The Hinepaw family was composed of 
Peter Hinepaw, his wife and five children, the oldest of whom was 
about twelve years of age. 

Three log cabins were soon erected, one on the Cascadilla Creek, 
near where Mr. William's Flouring Mill now stands, and the other 
two nearly opposite Halsey's Mill, or near the residence of Dr. 

A public road was built from Oxford, on Chenango River, direct- 
ly through to Ithaca, by Joseph Chaplin, in 1791-92-93, and this 
became the great highway for immigration in the south part of the 
State for many years. As a consequence, the country immediately 
bordering upon the road was rapidly settled. After the little set- 
tlement at Ithaca, others were soon started in Ulysses, on the west 
bank of the lake, and along Chaplin's road in Dryden. The open- 
ing of the rich lands of the Genesee country to settlers, diverted 
immigration from this region, and the County for many years did 
not increase in population with the same rapidity as the other re- 
gions further west. The growth of the County, however, has been 
gradual and continuous ; and now in every element of real pros- 
perity, it is fully on an average with the other counties of the 

Five weekly newspapers are now published in the County : 

The Seneca Republican, the first paper published in the County, 
was started at Ithaca, July 4, 1815, by Jonathan Ingersoll. In 
1816 it was changed to The Ithaca Journal, and in 1817 Mack & 
Shepherd became proprietors. It was successively issued by Mack 
& Searing, Ebenezer Mack and Mack ds Morgan, until 1824, when 
Wm, Andrus became partner, and the paper was issued by Mack 
& Andrus. In 1827 the name was changed to the Ithaca Journal, 
Literary Gazette and General Advertiser, and about a year after- 
ward, a portion of the title was dropped, and it was issued as The 
Ithaca Journal and Advertiser. In December', 1833, Mack & An- 
drus sold to Nathan Randall ; in 1837 Randall sold to Mattison & 
Barnaby ; and in 1839 A. E. Barnaby became sole proprietor. — 
In 1841 Barnaby sold to Alfred Wells, who soon after sold to J. 


H. Selkreg, who still continues its publication under the name of 
THE ITHACA JOURNAL. On the evening of November ZZ, 
1867, the office of the Journal was destroyed by fire. The publi- 
cation Wf s regularly continued from the Democrat office until Jan. 
1st, 1868, when the Jownal office was re-established, and the paper 
enlarged to eight colums. 

The Republican Chronicle was started at Ithaca in June, 1820, 
by Spencer & Stockton. In 1823, David D. Spencer became sole 
proprietor. In 1826 S. S. Chatterton bought an interest, and in 
1828 he became sole proprietor, and soon after changed the name 
to The Ithaca Bepuhlican. In 1831 or '32 he again changed the 
name to The Tompkins American, and in 1834 the paper was dis- 

The Western Messenger was started at Ithaca in 1826, by A. P. 
Searing, and was continued about two years. 

The Philanthropist, a Universalist paper, was started at Ithaca 
in 1831, by O. A. Brownson, and was continued about one year. 

The Ithaca Chronicle was started by D. D. & A. Spencer, in 
Feb., 1828, and was continued by them until 1853, when Anson 
Spencer became sole proprietor. In 1855 it was changed to The 
American Citizen, published by A. E. Barnaby & Co. Anson 
Spencer again became sole proprietor, by whom it was published 
until Feb. 25, 1863, when it was united with the Tompkins County 
Democrat, which paper was started at Ithaca in October, 1856, by 
Timothy Maloney, who continued its publication till the fall of 

1860, when he died. S. C. Clisbe purchased the office, April 1, 

1861, May 12, 1862, B. R. Williams purchased a half interest in 
the paper, and the publication was continued under the firm name 
of Clisbe & Williams, until Feb. 12, 1863, when Clisbe sold his 
interest to Williams, by whom it was published until 25th of Feb., 
1863, when "The Tompkins County Democrat" and "The Amer- 
ican Citizen," were united under the name of " Ithaca Citizen and 
Democrat" published by Spencer & Williams. July 4, 1867, the 
name was modified to 

ITHACA DEMOCRAT, and enlarged to an eight column paper. 
It is still continued by Messrs. Spencer & Williams, Mr. Spencer 
having been at times part owner and at others sole proprietor of 
the business since the establishment of the " Chronicle," in 1828. 

The Jeffersonian and Tompkins Times was started in 1836, by 
C. Bobbins. He soon after sold to G, G. Freer, who changed the 
name to The Ithaca Herald. In 1837 Nathan Randall became pro- 
prietor, and merged the paper in the Ithaca Journal and Adver- 


The Tompkins Volunteer was started at Ithaca by H. C. Good- 
win, in 1840. He soon after sold to J. Hunt, Jr. In 1843 the 
title was changed to ?%« Tompkins Democrat, and after a short time 
the paper was removed to Green, Chenango County. 

The Flag of the Union was started at Ithaca, in 1848, by J. B. 
Gosman. In 1850 it was merged in the Ithaca Journal cmd Ad- 

The Templar and Watchman was started at Ithaca, in 1853, by 
Orlando Lund. It afterward passed into the hands of Myron S. 
Barnes, and was continued a short time. 

[The record of the papers published at Trumansburgh was fur- 
nished by O. M. Wilson, Esq., editor of " The Tompkins Co. Sen- 
tinel," and is as follows :] 

1 . The first paper ever issued in Trumansburgh was the " Lake 
Light," on the 10th of October 1827. Edited by Phelps and 
Broome, a violent political and anti-Masonic sheet was published 
up to Feb. 1829, during which time it had in addition to the above, 
as editors and proprietors, Clark & Bloomer, St. John & Clark, 
and H. St. John. 

2. "Anti Masonic Sentinel." The first number was issued Feb. 
5, 1829. E. St. John was editor and proprietor. It was published 
but a few weeks. 

3. " Trumanshvrgh Advertiser." The first number was issued 
July 4, 1832 ^ David Fairchild was editor and proprietor for five 
years. In 1837 it passed to Erastus S. Palmer and Corydon Fair- 
child. Palmer & Fairchild continued together for a short time, 
when Palmer, now editor of a paper in Alleghany county N. Y., 
took sole control of the paper, which was continued as an indepen- 
dent and neutral paper to June 27, 1838, on which day the seventh 
volume was commenced under the name of 

4. ' Trumansburgh Advertiser dk Tompkins County Whig,' a po- 
litical paper. Palmer continued as editor up to June 26, 1839, at 
which time he associated with him Charles H! Maxson, under whose 
management the paper continued to June 17, 1840, when Maxson 
sold out to Palmer. The paper was continued but a few months 

5. "Trumansburgh Sun," a neutral paper, was issued on Deo. 2, 
1840, John Gray editor and proprietor. It contimfcd through three 
volumes, to October 15, 1843, on which day was issued the 

6. " Trumansburgh Gazette," a neutral paper under John Creque, 
Jr., as editor and proprietor, who carried the paper through nearly 
three volumes to March 7, 1846.

Edw. Himrod & A. P . Osborn in Sept. 1860, and continued after 
the first three months by the first named gentleman, up to June,> 
1863, when A. O. Hicks and W. W. Pasko took possession of the 
office. W.J. Van Namee soon after purchased the office, and owned 
it to the time of the conflagration of Peb. 23, 1863, when the 
office was destroyed. 

10. On the 5th of April, 1865, the TOMPKINS CO. SENTINEL 
was first issued in Trumansburgh, by Oscar M. Wilson as editor 
and proprietor, by whom it has since been published. 

The Christian Doctrinal Advocate and Spiritual Monitor was 
started at Mott's Corners in 1837, under the auspices of the 7th 
Day Baptist denomination, and was continued several years. 

The Qroton Ballance was started at Groton in 1838. Its name 
was subsequently changed to The Groton Democrat. It was dis- 
continued about 1840. 

THE GROTON JOUENAL was started at Groton, November 
9th, 1866, by H. Clark Marsh, the present editor and proprietor. | 

Bumsey's Companion was started at Dryden, in 1856, by H. D. 
Rumsey. It was soon after changed to The Fireside Companion,} 
and again in a few months to The Dryden News. In 1857, it wasi 
sold to G. Z. House, and, changed to The New York Confederacy,' 
and was soon after discontinued. In 1858, it was resuscitateifi 
as THE DRYDEN WEEKLY NEWS, by Asahel Clapp, by ' 
whom it is still published. 

In April, 1804, the Legislature passed a law incorporating a com- 
pany under the name of the "Susquehanna and Bath Turnpild 
Road Co.," to build a turnpike from the Susquehanna River in the 
town of Jericho, in Chenango Co., to the town of Bath, in Steuben j 
Co., running near the heads of Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. This 
road runs through the towns of Caroline, Dryden, Ithaca and En- 
field, and that part of it lying within the corporation of the village 
of Ithaca, is nowvoalled State Street. 

In April, 1807, the Owego and Ithaca Turnpike Company was 
meorporated, and the road was finished in 1808. This road, run- 
ning from Owego, then in the County of Broome, to the head of 
Cayuga lake, gave a great impetus to the business of Ithaca, and 


emigration to the County; and when the war of 1812 cut off the 
supply of plaster and gypsum, which was principally furnished 
from Novia Scotia, hundreds of teams daily passed over this road 
from Ithaca to Owego, loaded with this article, taken from the al- 
most inexhaustible pl,aster beds of Cayuga. 

In March, 1810, another company was incorporated to build a 
turnpike road from Ithaca to Geneva, under the name of the Ithaca 
and Geneva Turnpike Company. This road was laid out along the 
west side of Cayuga Lake, crossing the outlet of Seneca Lake near 
Geneva, and was completed in 1811. 

The completion of the Erie Canal in 1825, and that of the Cayuga 
and Seneca Canal in 1828, gave the citizens of Tompkins a water 
communication from Ithaca to the Hudson river, and greatly ad- 
vanced the interests of the County. 

The Ithaca and Owego Railroad Company was incorporated Jan- 
uary 28, 1 828, with a capital of one hundred and fifty thousand 
dollars, but no active measures were taken to build the road until 
the building of the Chemung Canal from the head of Seneca lake to 
Elmira, threatened to divert trade from Ithaca and Owego. 

Gen. Simeon DeWitt, who owned a large tract of land at the 
head of Cayuga Lake, and others interested in the prosperity of 
Ithaca and Owego, set themselves at work to build this road. Eail- 
road investments were then popular, and the stock was readily 
taken, and the work was commenced and prosecuted with great 

In March, 1832, the capital stock was increased to three hundred 
thousand dollars, and the road was opened in April, 1834. This 
was the second railroad chartered in this State, and it was poorly 
constructed and equipped, and operated entirely by horse power. 
In May following the opening of the road, the capital was again in- 
creased to four hundred and "fifty thousand dollars, and April 18, 
1838, the Legislature authorized a loan to the Company of two 
hundred and fifty thousand dollars, or an amount equal to one half 
of the whole sum the company had paid for constructing the road, 
not exceeding three hundred thousand dollars ; and for which the 
State was to have a lien upon the entire road and its appurtenances. 
With this aid, together with large sums raised on the individual 
credit of some of its friends, the road was put in fair condition ; 
but the Erie Railroad had not yet reached Owego, and the second 
railroad in the State was emphatically a " one horse" road between 
two interior towns. 

The great financial revulsion of thirty-seven swept over the land; 
business was prostrated ; the Company failed to pay their interest 
to the State, and in May, 1842, the road was sold by the State to 
Archibald Mclntyre and a few others, for the sum of four thousand 
Jive hundred dollars. 


April 18, 1843, the purchasers were incorporated under the name 
of the Cayuga and Susquehanna Railroad Company, with a capital 
of $18,000. 

The road, as first constructed, had an inclined plain at Ithaca, ris- 
ing one foot in every four and twenty-eight one-hundredths feet, 
with a stationary horse power to draw up the cars, and above this 
anotheB,plane, rising one foot in every twenty-one feet. The new 
Company repaired the road, doing away with these absurd inclined 
planes, and substituting sffream for feorse power. 

The New York and Erie Road was finished to Owego in June, 
1849, and the first of January, 1855, the Company leased the Cayu- 
ga and Susquehanna to the Delaware, Lackawanna and "Western 
Company, and it is now run by that Company as the Cayuga Divi- 
sion, and is one of the main outlets to the anthracite coal fields of 
Central Pennsylvania. 

In 1^35 the State built a pier at the mouth of Cayuga Inlet, ex- 
tending sixteen hundred feet into the lake, twelve feet wide and four 
feet high, for the protection of the mouth of that stream, and caused 
' the bar .at its mouth to be removed, thereby making the Inlet navi- 
gable, not only for canal boats, but for the steamers of the lake. 

The Ithaca and Towanda Rail Road Co. have made surveys, and 
the road is expected to be built at an early day. It is to start from 
the Staie line, at Waverly, N. Y., and .is to run up Shepard's Creek 
to Van Ettenville, about fourteen miles north, at a grade of four- 
teen feet to the mile ; from thence to Summit, through Spencer, 
about six miles, at an average grade of about nine feet to the mile; 
from Summit to Ithaca, a distance of fifteen miles, the road will 
run along the valley of Cayuga Inlet, at a descending grade of 
forty-five feet .to the mile, connecting at Ithaca with Cayuga Lake, 
and with Lake Shore R. R. (when that road is built.) At WaVerly 
it will connect with New York and Pa. Canal and Rail Road, run- 
ning from Waverly to Pitston, connecting thence with roads run- 
ning to the hard coal fields, and at Towanda with roads running to 
the soft coal fields. "When this road is completed the business it 
will bring will add materially to the wealth and growth of Ithaca, 
and the County of Tompkins. 

The Southern Central Rail Road, now in course of construction, 
runs south from Auburn, along the west bank of Owasco Lake, 
thence through Moravia; following the valley of Owasco Inlet, 
through Locke, in Cayuga Co., to Groton ; thence south-easterly 
through that town and Dryden to Hartford, in Cortland Co., from 
whence it takes a southerly direction to Owego, Tioga Co. This 
road is expected to be put in running order during the coming year, 
and will be the means of greatly enhancing the value of property 
in the eastern portion of the County. When all these improve- 


merits shall have been completed, Tompkins County will be as well 
provided with means of transp jrtation as any of her sister Counties. 

In preparing this brief historical account, the writer has been un- 
able to obtain any reliable data by which to give a complete exhibit 
of the part Tompkins County bore in the war of the Eebellion. 
No full regiments were recruited or organized within the County, 
but many companies were raised and went into regiments from 
other Counties, while numbers of men enlisted in localities out- 
side the County, and were there accredited. We can only give a 
few statistics as furnished us by individuals. 

Captain Jerome Rowe, with his company, joined the 32d Reg., 
N. Y. v., 31st May, 1861, at New York. Capt. Martin C. Clark 
went out at the head of a company, part of which was from Tomp- 
kins and a. part from Cortland County; the company joined the 
23d Regt. N. Y. V., 16th May, 1861. Capt. Wm. Glenny, went 
out from Ithaca, with Company C, 64th N. Y. V., in the fall of 
1861. (The regiment was mustered in at Elmira.) He was af- 
terwards promoted, and returned as Brev. Brig. General. Capt. G. 
D. Crittenden, of Groton, Company C, and Capt. J. H. Barnard, 
of Dryden, Company F., 76th N. Y. V., were mustered with their 
men Sept. 16th, 1861, at Cortland. Capt. R. H. S. Hyde, of Caro- 
line, took out Company Bi, I09th N. Y. V. He was afterward 
promoted Major of 15th Cavalry. Capt. Wm. E. Mount raised 
Company F., 109th N. Y. V., in Groton and Dryden. Capt. R. D. 
McAllister raised Company A., of the same regiment, in Danby. 
Capt. A. W. Nettles raised Company G., in Lansing. They were 
mustered into the service at Binghampton, Aug. 27, 1862. Com- 
pany K., 137th N. Y. v., went out from Ulysses, under Capt. Silas 
Piersons, and Company D., of the same Regt. went from Ithaca, un- 
der Capt. John H. Lury. R. S, Van Voorhees, of Ithaca, went out 
as Lieut. Col. of the 137th, was promoted to the Colonelcy, and 
returned as Brev. Brig. Gen. Westel Willoughby, of Groton, 
went out as Major, and John M. Ferrington, of Trumansburgh, went 
out as surgeon of the 137th. The Regiment was mustered into 
service at Binghampton, 25th Sept., 1862. John Whittock, of 
Ithaca, went out as Captain Co. I., 132d N. Y. V. Company D. 
143d N. Y. v., went out under Capt. John Higgins, of Jthaca, in 
the fall of 1862. Capt. Higgins was promoted to Major, and after- 
wards, Brev. Lieut-Col. Capt. Harrison Marvin, of Dryden, took 
out Co. 1., same Regiment. Capt. David A. Signor, took out Co. 
M., 21st Cavalry, from Ithaca, in the winter of 1863. Capt. George 
L. Truesdell, of Dryden, went out in the 15th Cavalry, Jan. 1864, 
as 1st Lieut, of Co. I. He was in the service nearly two years, 
was promoted to the Captaincy of Co. G., in 1865, and was in 
twenty-three engagements. 


This necessarily brief and imperfect review of the military record 
of the County, is sufficient to show that her citizens were not lack- 
ing in patriotic ardor. Men and means were given in unstinted 
measure at each repeated call, and many were they whose lives 
sealed their devotion to their country and her sacred cause. While 
memorial shafts rise above the ashes of those, the patriot dead, they 
shall have a more fitting and eternal remembrance in the grateful 
hearts of their countrymen. And may He, who rules among the 
nations of the earth, grant that the peace which they died to con- 
quer, may be ever unbroken, shedding its joyful fruits to the latest 
generations and the remotest age of time. 



CAMOLjINE was formed from Spencer, (Tioga Co.,) Feb. 
22, 1811, and was transferred to this County, March 22, 1822, A 
part was annexed to Danby in 1839, and a small portion annexed 
fpom the same town in 1866. It is the south-east corner town of 
the County. Its surface is an upland, broken by a series of ridges 
running north-west and south-east. The summits of the hills are 
usually rounded and rolling, and their declivities steep. 

The streams are Owego Creek, forming the east boundary, and 
Six Mile Creek and their branches. These streams generally flow 
in deep, narrow valleys, bordered by steep hillsides. The soil in 
the north part of the town is a gravelly loam, and in the south part 
day predominates. The soil and surface are best adapted to graz- 

Caroline Cknter, (p. v.) is a small village near the center of the 
town, at the head of Boyer Creek. Motfa Comers, (p. v.) on Six 
Mile Creek, in the north-west corner of the town, is an enterprising 
village of nearly 300 inhabitants, and contains several mannfaeto- 
ries. About a mile below the village is the extraiave Gun-barrel 
manufactory of the Messrs. Losey. This establishment was started 
50 years ago, by Abiel Losey, at Otsego; thence it was removed 
to Fall Creek, near Ithaca; thence to Owego; and thence to its 
present location. 

Speedsville, (p. v.) upon Boyer and West Creeks, in the south- 
east Conner of the town, is a small village, with about 120 inhabi- 
tants. Slaierville, (p. v.) near the north border, on Six Mile Creek,,

The first settlers "were Jacob Yaple and Isaac Dumon, who re- 
moved from the head of Cayuga Lake, wherte Ithaca now stands, 
and where they first located, to Danby, about the year 1795. 
These men built the first grist mill in the town, in 1797. The 
stones were quarried on South Hill, near Ithaca, and by them 
dressed and prepared for use. Dr. Lewis Beers, with his eldest 
brother, came into the town from Stratford, Conn., in 1797, and 
purchased two hundred acres of land. Joseph Judson also located 
in the town in 1797, and taught the first school. Dr. Beers kept 
the first inn, commencing in 1798, in a house twenty by twenty- 
two feet square. He was also the first Justice of the Peace^ re- 
oeiying his commission from Governor Tompkins, in 1807. Abher 
Beers kept the first store, and Jabez Beers was the first Member 
of Assembly from that town. Among the other early settlers 
were David and Hezekiah Clark, Stephen Beers, John Miller, Wm. 
Hogg and Moses Barker. The first death in the town was that of 
an infant son of Lewis Beardsley. The first church, (Congrega- 
tional,) was formed in 1807 ; Rev. Daniel Loring was the first 

The census of 1865 reports eight churches. There are 17 Schools, 
employing 35 teachers, with an average daily attendance of 276 
scholars. The expenditures for school purposes during the year 
1867, were $3,394.96. The population of the town in 1865 was 
2,140. It contains an area of 34,142J acres, of which 23,022} are 
improved, and 11,119} unimproved. There are in the town 119} 
miles of public road. 

DMYDEN, named by the Surveyor General, Simeon De- 
"Wltt, after John Dryden, the English Poet, was formed from 
Ulysses, Feb. 22, 1803. A part of Danby was annexed in 1856. 
It is now the largest town in the County, being ten miles square, 
and is No. 23 of the original townships in theMilitaty Tract. 

The surface «f the north half is rolling or moderately hilly, and 
that of the south half, hilly and broken. The east border forms 
the water-shed between the Tioughnioga River and Cayuga Lake. 
The highest ridge, in the south-east part, is 1,700 to 1,800 feet above 
tide. The principal streams are Fall Creek, flowing south-west, 
through near the center of the town, on its course affording several 
water privileges, Cascadilla Creek and several small streams, 
tributaries to Owego Creek, which take their rise in the south part. 
Dryden Lake is a small sheet of water, one mile long and about 
half a mile wide, lying in an elevated valley, near the east border, 
and 1,500 feet above tide, Dryden Springs, strongly impregnated 
with sulphur, magnesia and iron, is situated one mile west of Dry- 


den village, and has a considerable notoriety for its medecinal vir- 
tues. A comfortable and substantial house is located at the Springs, 
and both are under the management of Miss S. S. Nivison, a lady 
possessing large experience in the management of diseases, and a 
graduate of one of our best medical colleges. In the south-east part 
of the town are two large swamps, each covering an area of several 
hundred acres. This town was once one of the best lumbering dis- 
tricts in the County. In 1835 the census reported fifty-one saw 
mills. At the present time the number is quite small. 

Dryden (p. V.) is incorporated, and has a population of nearly 
700. It is pleasantly located on the south branch of Fall Creek, in 
the east part of the town, and is a flourishing inland village. It 
contains two churches, one academy, one grist mill, one woolen fac- 
tory, a printing office, hotel and several stores and shops. The 
grounds and buildings of the Dryden Agricultural Society are locat- 
ed on Main street in the eastern part of the village. The society 
was organized thirteen years ago, and has since been conducted with 
entire success. It is usually as largely attended, and in several in- 
stances the receipts have been larger than have been realized at 
many County Fairs. The receipts from all sources, as per the treas- 
urer's report for 1867, were $1,671.21, and the disbursements dur- 
ing the same period were $1,502.62, leaving in the treasury a bal- 
ance of $168.59. 

The Southern Central Rail Road now being built, enters the 
town from the north, on lot No. 6, and passes south-easterly through 
that and Nos. 16, 26, 37, 38, 48, 49, 59, 69 and 70, on the line of 
Cortland County. The road passes through the western portion of 
the village of Dryden. Its completion will undoubtedly materially 
add to the growth and prosperity of the place. 

Mna (p. V.) is a thriving little village of some 230 inhabitants. 
It is situated on Fall Creek, a little west of the center of the town, 
and contains two churches and several shops, mills, &c., and one or 
two stores. Varna (p. v.) on Fall Creek, near the west line of the 
town, contains between one hundred and fifty and two hundred in- 
habitants, and West Dryden (p. o.) in the north-west part, is a ham- 
let. Malloryville, on Fall Creek, in the north-west part ; Calif m- 
nia, south of the center; Freeville, north of the center, and Willow 
Glen, a mile and a half west of Dryden, are hamlets. 

The C. & S. R. R. cuts the extreme south-west corner, but there 
is no station within the limits of the town. 

Amos Sweet commenced the first settlement in this town, in 
1797, on the present site of Dryden village. The next settlers 
were Ezekiel Sanford, David Foot and Ebenezer Chansen, who lo- 
cated in 1798, at "Willow Glen." A single yoke of oxen, at one 
load, brought these three families, consisting of fourteen persons, 
and all their household goods, from the Chenango River. Oapt. 


George Robertson, (sometimes called the " father of the town,") 
also came in, in '98, and settled on Lot 53, in the western part of 
the town. Peleg Ellis and John Ellis came in about the year 1800. 
Peleg located in the south part of the town, at what is now called 
Ellis Hollow. John Ellis located at Malloryville. For many 
years he was a prominent man, and for more than twenty-five years 
he was Supervisor of that town, and his name now stands in the 
census of 1835 thus, "John Ellis, King of Dryden." Among the 
early settlers were Lyman Hurd, from Vermont, Dr. Sheldon, Dr. 
Wolf, Irona Peat, Wm. Daley, Joel Hull and James Wood. Dan- 
iel Lacey taught the first school ; Amos Lewis kept the first inn ; 
Joel Hull the first store, and Col. Hopkins, from Homer, built the 
first mill, in 1800. Joseph Chaplin built a road from Oxford, 
Chenango County, to Ithaca, passing through t^is town in 1792- 

The census of 1865 reports nine churches. There are 28 schools, 
employing 59 teachers, with an average daily attendance of 486 
scholars. The expenditures for school purposes during the year 
1867, was $7,850.46. The population of the town in 1865, was 
4,795. It embraces an area of 56,773 acres, of which 41 ,5621 acres 
are improved and 15,210i unimproved. There are in the town 
208} miles of public roads. 

ENFIJELDf named from Enfield, Conn., was formed from 
Ulysses, March 16, 1821. It lies upon the center of the west bor- 
der of the County. It is six miles square. Its surface is rolling, 
and it has a mean elevation of 500 to 700 feet above Cayuga Lake. 

The principal streams are Enfield Creek, and the South Branch 
of Taghkanic Creek. 

Upon the former, in the south-east part of the town, is one of 
the finest of the many beautiful cascades found in this County. — 
How and when these falls received the name of " Lucifer," remains 
in doubt, but below the main fall there is a recess in the rocks, with 
regular walls and rocky floor, which was formerly called the " De- 
vil's Kitchen," and, here it is fair to presume, the falls were named ; 
but whether by the proprietor himself, or some of his friends, is quite 
uncertain. The stream rushes through a deep, narrow gorge, and 
has a total fall of two hundred and thirty feet ; the main fall is 
about one hundred and sixty. 

* "About a half mile above the fall, the little creek, which has 
its rise among the blue hills beyond, suddenly enters a narrow but 
formidable gateway ofrock, whose huge buttresses tower a hundred 
feet above on either side, surmounted with a bristling growth of

atively free fi-om obstruction until now, winding through a beautu 
fully formed. yalley of green pastures «°d meadow land wheie 
many an honest tiller of the soil has erected his comfortable home, 
now becomes painfully tortuous, broken with sharp angles and ob- 
structed with fragments of rock which have fallen from the heights 
above ; and the water which has idly found its way thus far, pre- 
pares in earnest for the desperate encounter which seems inevita- 
ble, and plunges into the shawdows of the gorge as if curious to 
explore its mysteries, and. strong to endure the torment which it 
may inflict. 

" Probably there is no Ravine in the world which furnishes more 
variety in so short a space, as that which extends from the rocky 
entrance, so securely guarded by the two granite champions, to the 
dizzy verge of the grand fall, a few hundred yards below. Every 
foot of progress discloses some new and singular formation of rock 
entirely dissimilar from any preceding it. Cascades of every con- 
ceivable form and height, and deep, narrow channels, which some- 
times conceal in their rumbling depths the fiercely running water, 
follow each other in such rapid and agreeable succession, that the 
spectator is at once lost in wonder and delight. Throughout the 
entire course, a safe and easy footpath winds along beneath the over- 
hanging cliffs, and at a point about midway from the entrance, 
crosses the gulf thirty feet above the water, by a rustic bridge, from 
which a grand view of the Ravine is obtained, both up and down 
the stream. 

" So picturesque, and at times sublime, is the scenery on either 
hand, that the tourist, as he descends, sometimes forget* that he 
has not yet beheld the grand object of his visit, and shudders with 
astonishment when at length, upon turning an abrupt corner of the 
cliff, the fearful gulf, whose rocky pavement checked the rash leap 
of " Lucifer," stares him in the face. 

" The war of waters 1 from the headlong height 

Velino cleaves the wave-worn precipice ; 
The fall of waters 1 rapid as the light

The hell of waters 1 where they howl and hiss, 

And boil in endless torture ; while the sweat

Their Phlegetnon, curls round the rocks of jet 
That gird the gulf around, in pitiless horror set." 

" Two hundred and twenty feet beneath, the water, already re- 
covered from the concussion of the fall, is seen dimly through the 
mist-wreaths to flow leisurely along, and disappear in the shadow 


of green foliage beyond. One hundred and fifty feet above, are buri- | 
ed the roots of trees which crown the noble brow of the cliff, and . 
thrust still another hundred feet into the sunlight of heaven, wave 
the topmost boughs, which sway fearlessly over anatJyss of nearly 
five hundred feet in depth." 

The soil in this town is principally a gravelly loam. 

Enfield Center, (p. v.) located, as the name indicates, near the 
center of the town, is the largest village. Enfield, (p. c) in the 
eastern, and Enfield Falls, in the south-east part, are hamlets. 

Among the first settlers were Giltner, John Whittock, 

James Rumsey, Lewis Owen, and Isaac and John Beech. John Ap- 
ple kept the first inn; Samuel IngersoU the first store, and Wil- 
liam Ferris built the first mill. 

The census of 1865 reports four churches in the town. There 
are 14 schools, employing 29 teachers, with an average daily at- 
■ tendance of 207 scholars. The expenditures for school purposes, 
during the year 1867, were $4,531.99. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 1,693. It embraces an 
area of 18,468 acres, of which 13,877J- are improved, and 4,590f 
unimproved. There are in the town 84t miles of public roads. 

CtJJOjTO^ derived its name from Groton in Connecticut, and 
was formed from Locke, (Cayuga Co,,) as "Division," April 7, 1817, 
and its name changed March 13, 1818. It is the north-east corner 
town in the County, and has a rolling or moderately hilly surface. 
From the valleys the" land rises by long and gradual slopes to a 
height of one hundred to three hundred feet. The highest point 
in town is about fifteen hundred feet above tide. It is watered 
principally by Owasco Inlet, running north through the center, and 
Fall Creek, running south through the eastern portion of the 

Bear Swamp, in the west part, contains several hundred acres. 

•The soil is a fine quality of gravelly loam, underlaid by slate, 
and is well adapted to agricultural purposes. 

Groton, (p. v.) on Owasco Inlet, near the center of the town, is 
incorporated, and is considerably noted for its manufactories of 
carriages, threshing machines, &c. It also has a foundry and ma- 
chine shop, an academy, newspaper office, several stores, and a 
population of about 700 inhabitants. - McLean, (p. v.) on Fall 
Creek, in the south-east part, is also a manufacturing village of 
some note, and contains five churches, and about three hundred in- 
habitants. Perttville, (p. y.) near the south border, is a small vil- 
lage containing two churches, saw mill, grist mill, &c. Groton 


City, (p. T.) in the north-east corner ; West Groton, (p. v.) in the 
north-west ; Benson's Corners, in the south-west, and Lafayette on 
Fall Creek, above McLean, are hamlets. 

Among the early settlers were Samuel Hogg, at West Groton ; 
Ichabod Brown and John Guthrie, at Groton ; and J. Willoughby, 
J. Houghtaling and W. S. Clark, at East Groton. There is yet 
living in town Mrs. Elizabeth Pipher, who has resided here since 
1802. She is now 105 years old, and is yet enjoying as good health 
as could be expected for one so far advanced in years. 

The census of 1865 reports thirteen churches in town. 

There are seventeen public schools, employing 40 teachers, with 
an average daily attendance of 419 scholars. The expenditures 
for school purposes during the year 1867 were $5,370.35. The 
population of the town in 1865 was 3,401. It has an area of 28,905 
acres, of which 23,370 are improved, and 5,535 unimproved. 

There are in the town 119 miles of public road. 

ITHACA was formed from Ulysses, March 16, 1821. The 
name was first generally applied to the village, about 1806. Mr. 
King says, in his " Early History of Ithaca," that, " Hitherto it 
had been known only as " The Flats," or as some say, " The City," 
or as others " Sodom," and of course none of these could be retained. 

" There is a small island in the Ionian Sea, with which there is 
connected much that is interesting and beautiful, in ancient and 
classical writings. Homer made it the seat of government of one 
of his most distinguished, perchance his favorite hero ; for although 
Achilles ranked highest for strength and prowess at the siege of 
Troy, yet even in the Illiad, the blind poet seems to have been de- 
lighted to rehearse the wise counsels, and to portray the skill and 
bravery of Ulysses ; and the Odyssey is but a narration of his wan- 
derings and adventures,wherein tempest-tossed and ship-wrecked,and 
after a thousand accidents and surprises, and as many extraordinary 
escapes, he returns home to find a wife faithful, and to hear of a son 
whose absence in search of his father manifests the strongest filial 
love. Virgil, alsoj in his ^nead, makes mention of the same 
island. It was named " Ithaca," and its city — also of that name — 
is described as a " bird's nest, built among the rocks." 

"And here, in this valley, almost surrounded by hills, with no sea, 
it is true, laving its shores, but with a beautiful lake close by, the 
rising village was appropriately named " Ithaca ;" (the name had 
been bestowed by Gen. DeWitt, several years previonsly, but it 
was not until about this period that it became generally knoVn. 
On opening his house, Vrooman put up the sign "Ithaca Hotel," 
and thu^ it soon was well published ;) and it is now the only spot 
upon the face of the earth so designated, for the ancient Ithaca is at 
present known by the name of Theaki." 


It is the central- town in the County, and lies at and around the 
head of Cayuga Lake. A tract of land two miles long and one and 
arhalf broad, low and nearly level, extends south from the lake 
shore ; and from this the valley of Cayuga Inlet opens to the south- 
west, and that of Six Mile Creek to the south-east. 

Ridges, 400 to 700 feet high, with steep declivities, separate these 
valleys, and surround the low land and the head of the lake. From 
the summits the surface spreads out into a rolling upland. A marsh 
half a mile wide borders immediately on the lake. The principal 
streams are Fall, Cascadilla, Six Mile, Buttermilk and Ten Mile 
Creeks, and Cayuga Inlet. Several other smaller streams find 
their way through deep gorges into the lake. In their course from 
the highlands each of these streams plunges down the. wall-like pre- 
cipices which surround the lake, forming series of cascades which 
for beauty and variety are scarely equaled elsewhere. Upon Fall 
Creek, within the space of one mile, there are five falls, varying 
in height from forty-five to one hundred and twenty-five feet. Cas- 
cadilla and Six Mile Creeks, also have beautiful cascades. About 
two miles south of the village is Buttermilk Creek, where the 
waters before reaching the valley come tumbling down a broad 
rocky inclined plane of more than a hundred and twenty-five feet, the 
stream distributing itself so widely over the rocks, that it partakes, 
as has been aptly said, " the foamy whiteness belonging to the pro- 
duct of the churn, rather than of the spring." In the beds of many 
of these streams, and especially is this the case with Buttermilk 
Creek, — there are deep basins worn in the rock, in which the water 
whirls and boils as in a huge cauldron. They were probably once 
small holes, into which stones have been deposited by the water, 
where they have whirled around and around year after year, until 
this ceaseless friction has worn them out to their present dimen- 
sions. In very low water they sometimes receive the whole stream , 
and a person can stand quite near them, upon the dry rock, but 
within reach of the spray from their boiling contents ; the rocks 
are slippery and the footing insecure. Fanciful names have been 
given to some of these basins, two of which, " Father Mathews' 
Cup" and the " DeviPs Punch Bowl," indicate, perhaps, the senti- 
ments and tastes of those who named them. 

Our space will not permit an extended description of these beau- 
ties scattered with such a lavish hand throughout this town ; but 
the reader is referred to a little book, (from which we make a few 
extracts,) published a year or two since by Mr. Spence Spencer, of 
this town, entitled, " Scenery of Ithaca," or " Head waters of Cayu- 
ga Lake," in which he will find all these wonderful works of the 
"Great Architect " minutely and beautifully described.* 

*Mr. Spencer has alBO collected MteteoBcoplc Views of all the flails and objects of in- 
terest In the vicinity of Ithaca, taken by first-class artists. No collection can be com- 
plete withoat them, and we onderstand he supplies them at liberal rates.— En. 


The soil in this town is a fertile, gravelly loam upon the uplands, 
and a deep rich alluvium in the valleys. 

Ithaca, (p. v.,) is the County Seat, the commercial center of the 
County, and is one of the ijiosil; beautiful villages in the State. It is 
indeed doubtful if there be another place in the State where the 
same amount apd variety of beautiful scenery can be found within 
so small a compass. Built upon a level plain, and on the hills 
which surround it on three sides, it looks out to the north upon the 
quiet waters of the Cayuga ; while from the east, within its corpor- 
ate limits, three considerable streams come plunging and foaming 
over numerous falls, and writhing and hissing through deep rocky 
gorges and dark ravines to the plain below, and mingling with the 
lazy waters of the Inlet, find their way to the lake. 

The beauties of Ithaca are not its only attraction. Situated near- 
ly in the center of a County unsurpassed for the variety and abun- 
dance of its products, with a direct railroad and water communica- 
tion with the markets of the east and west, and a water-power suf- 
ficient to drive the machinery of Lowell, there is no reason why it 
should not become one of the largest manufacturing towns in the 

The deep gorge through which the waters of Fall Creek flow, is 
bordered by perpendicular cliffs, and formerly the water was car- 
ried to the mills below in wooden flumes, suspended to these walls ; 
but in 1831.-32, Mr. Bebee built a tunnel through the rock, two hun- 
dred feet long, from ten to twelve feet wide, and thirteen feet high, 
into which the whole stream can be turned, and by which a fall of 
more than a hundred feet is obtained for hydraulic purposes. The 
perpendicular fall of this stream, within a mile and a half of the post 
office, is five hundred feet, and the minimum power of twenty-five 
feet is sufficient to drive a flouring mill of eight runs of stones ; and 
Cascadilla and Six Mile Creeks afford half as much more power. 
Of this vast water power about eighty per cent, lies idle for want of 
capital to employ it. 

Hon. Ezra Cornell says, that the investigations made in the sum- 
mer of 1865, with reference to the Ithaca and Towanda Rail Road, 
now being constructed, prove that steam power can be produced 
cheaper at Ithaca than any other place in the State on navigable wa- 
ters ; and like investigations made during the building of the Cor- 
nell Library, and with reference to securing the location of the State 
Asylum for the Blind at Ithaca, demonstrate, that building mate- 
rials are cheaper here than at any place of equal population in the 
State ; and that buildings for manufacturing purposes can be erec- 
ted at twenty per cent, less cost than at other localities. Food and 
labor are also comparatively cheap. With all these advantages of 
cheap power, cheap labor, cheap and abundant food, and cheap and 
reliable avenues for reaching good markets, centering at Ithaca, it 


only requires that the attention of capital be directed to the place 
to insure the employment of its resources. On Fall Creek there is 
a paper mill which makes daily about one ton of printing paper, and 
sixteen hundred pounds of wrapping. The two principal buildings 
are of brick, one forty by sixty, and the other sixty by one hundred 
feet. There is also a flouring mill, with seven runs of stones, of 
sufficient capacity to make two hundred and fifty barrels of flour 
per day, and grind one thouisand bushels of coarse grain. On Cas- 
cadilla Creek there is another mill with four runs of stones, capable 
of producing one hundred and twenty-five barrels of flour, and 
grinding seven hundred bushels of coarse grain per day ; attached 
to this is a plaster mill, which will grind twenty tons per day. On 
Six Mile Creek is a third with eight runs of stones, and having a 
capacity similar to the one first mentioned, and to which there is 
also attached a plaster mill. There are in the village several foun- 
dries and machine shops, one of which is extensively engaged in 
the manufacture of mowers and reapers, and other agricultural im- 
plements, several tobacco factories, carriage factories, one melo- 
deon factory, one linseed oil and flax mill, one brewery and a large 
number of other manufactories of various kinds, two large elevators 
and store-houses. There are also a large number of boat yards, at 
which are annually built from thirty to forty canal and lake boats, 
at an average cost of about thirty-eight hundred dollars each. It 
has become generally conceded that the Ithaca built boats are 
among the best running on our inland waters. 

The mercantile interests of Ithaca are quite extensive, and there 
are now quite a large number of houses in active business, the pro- 
prietors of which were familiar to the citizens of Tompkins County, 
more than thirty years ago, then as now, dispensing their wares. 
The growth of the town has heretofore been slow, but sure. Men 
have grown rich here, and latterly there seems to be a new life and 
energy instilled into the whole population. Much of this has no 
doubt been stimulated by the munificence and generosity of the 
Hon. Ezra Cornell, the founder of " Cornell University," " Cornpll 
Library," &c., of whom we shall hereafter speak. When the Itha- 
ca and Towanda, and the Lake Shore Bail Boads, shall have been 
built, Ithaca will have emerged from her thraldom, and, summer or 
winter, will be as accessible as any ofher sister towns or cities. We 
trust the energy of her citizens will not long delay the day. 

In 1865, Henry B. Horton invented a new and perfectly reliable 
calendar, and in connection with Hon. J. H. Selkreg and Harvey 
Platts, entered into its manufacture, and now the Calendar Clock 
Factory is one of the institutions of Ithaca. The mechanism by 
which the calendars are tested, thirty or forty at a time, through 
a series of eight years, in four hours, works perfectly, and detects 


the fault, should there be any, in the calendars. The operation is 
an interesting one to visitors. 

The public schools are graded, and are in a prosperous condition. 

The " Ithaca Fire Department " consists of five engine com- 
panies, one hook and ladder company, one bucket company, and a 
protective police force. The officers for 1868 are as follows : 

B. R. Williams, Chief Engineer. 

J. M. Heggie, Jr 1st Asst. " 

Geo. Sjpcebaugh, 2nd Asst. " 

John Diltz, Foreman " Cayuga " Engine Co. No. 1 . 

JohnSpence, " "Rescue" " " « 2. 

J. M. Lyons, « " Tornado " H. & L. Co. No. 3. 

Wm. S. Berry, " " Eureka " Engine Co. No. 4. 

Geo, Pickering, " " Torrent " Bucket Co. No. 5. 

Geo. J. KenyoTi, " " Hercules " Engine Co. No. 6. 

J.Morris, " .' "Cataract" " " « 7. 

P. J. Partenheimer, Captain " Protective Police." 

Wm. W. Esty, the retiring " Chief," in his annual report to the 
President and Trustees of the village, in December, 1867, reports 
the expenditure of $2,353.39, to sustain the Department, purchase 
new hose, repairs, &c. The total number of certified and enrolled 
firemen was 361. Certificates of membership had been granted to 
78 new applicants, and seven certificates of honorable discharge had 
been granted during the year. 

The Departnient is excellently managed, and it is owing to its 
efficiency that Ithaca has escaped several disastrous conflagrations. 

Cascadilla Place. — This Institution is located in Ithaca, New 
York. Its site is on an eminence, overlooking the village from the 
east. Its northern line is a natural ravine, broken up into cascades 
and waterfalls, in whosfe depths the " Cascadilla " finds its way to 
the valley. At its eastern margin, an artificial stream, answering 
the purpose of a raceway, which has wound along the verge of the 
ravine from a supplying dam, spreads itself out into a large pond 
shaded by willows, and furnishes an ample supply of water to the 
establishment. Springs, both of pure water and largely impreg- 
nated with sulphur, lie along the banks of the ravine, and will be 
used in the buildings. The landscape around is unsurpassed. The 
waters of Cayuga Lake are spread out towards the north, and may 
be seen for a distance of thirty miles ; the village lies beneath, 
with a broad belt of highly cultivated farms skirting the west;— 
and, stretching away to the south, the valley loses itself among the 
hills in the distance, From the piazza of the building, eight of the 
nine towns of the County of Tompkins, four towns in Seneca, and 
two in Cayuga County, can be seen. 


The building, erected within the past two or three years, is of 
stone, having a front of 100 feet and a depth of 175 feet, rising four 
stories above the basement, and surrounded with porticos and bal- 
conies. It was planned by Miss Nivison, with patience and care, 
and with marlted skill and ability. Her long and successful expe- 
rience has enabled her to produce a plan which, the Trustees be- 
lieve, will prove to be most thoroughly and perfectly adapted to 
the purposes sought to be accomplished. The building will ac- 
commodate, easily and comfortably, two hundred patients. A 
Gymnasium and exercise room will be built along the margin of 
the ravine, having from its center a bridge spanning the chasm di- 
rectly over a beautiful cascade, and leading into cool and pleasant 
walks in the groves beyond. 

The Institution is intended to be something more than a mere 
" Water Cure." Its foundation theory is not that water is a/univer- 
sal panacea. Using it freely in all proper cases, its medical direc- 
tion will, nevertheless, feel free to use and apply all appropriate 
medical remedies without a blind and exclusive adherence to any 
one system. The case and the care of each patient will form a sep- 
arate study, and nothing will be omitted likely to restore health 
or strength, whatever may be the particular " school " from which 
it is derived. 

It is inteioed, eventually, to unite with this main purpose of 
properly treatmg the sick and the restoration of invalids, the in- 
struction and education of females as physicians and nurses. Such 
an arrangement will benefit both patients and pupils. It will give 
to the former intelligent, thoughtful and interested care, instead of 
the hired and routine attention of ordinary Institutions ; and, to the 
latter, ej^perience as well as learning. In the end it is hoped that 
the surplus earnings of the Corporation will enable the Trustees to 
erect a separate building for the care of the indigent sick and of in- 
valids who are unable to provide necessary medical attendance and 
care. So that the Institution is in no sense a private speculation, 
but in all respects a Public Beneficence. Its profits will go, not 
into the hands of individuals, but wholly into appropriate channels 
of usefulness and benevolence. 

The Institution is managed by a Board of Trustees, of whom 
Hon. Ezra Cornell is the leading spirit. 

It is expected the building will be used during the fall and winter 
of 1868, for the University School. 

The village contains nine churches, the Cornell Library, one 
academy, three banks, three printing offices, one bindery and a 
Town Hall. 

The Presbyterian church, with its neat chapel, the Baptist church 
and the Court House, are located on the north and east sides of a 
beautiful park, well shaded with maples, elms and evergreens. 


There are seven public houses in the village, the most important 
of which are the Clinton House, the Ithaca Hotel and the Tompkins 
House. The Clinton House is one of the most imposing buildings 
in the place, and a grander looking hotel cannot be found outside 
the large cities. With a front on Cayuga street of one hundred 
and twenty feet, adorned with massive columns and broad porticos, 
and crowned by a cupola from which the eye sweeps at a glance, 
the plain, the lake, and surrounding hills ; its symmetrical whole, 
stands as a monument to the enterprise and public spirit of Henry 
•Hubbard, Henry Ackley and Jeremiah S. Bebee, three of the prin- 
cipal business men of the place in 1831, when this building was com- 
pleted. The hospitable record of the House is a capacious one. 
It includes statesmen and jurists, and also travelers of celebrity, 
who have shown their good taste in journeying, by traversing the 
regions of the Cayuga. From the venerable Surveyor General De- 
Witt, (the friend and correspondent of Washington,) who watched 
its building with so much hope of its success, its register has been 
graced by thousands of names, good and true, not the least inter- 
esting page in which is that which records the signatures of the 
principal diplomats accredited to our Government, when making, 
with the Secretary of State, their tour of the country." 

" The rebuilding of the House in ] 862, was due to the increased 
enterprise of Ithaca. Mr. Cornell and Mr. Thompson together 
planned the new arrangement. They made the house a modern 
one. It was a stately and capacious one in its old devisings, but it 
now has in its broader spaces and more beautiful appointments, 
those way8 of living which our more fastidious, more rapid age 

One of the " old land marks " of Ithaca may be found standing 
on the south-west corner, at the intersection of Aurora and State 
streets. The venerable Ithaca Hotel still looks on with a seeming- 
ly benignant smile, at the gliding throng as they hurry past or 
crowd its threshold, and here it has stood for more than half a cen- 
tury, unchanged and unmoved by the world's turmoil, bustle and 
progress. Originally erected by Luther Gere, Esq., one of the 
founders and early pioneers of Ithaca, in 1809, it was looked upon 
as a model hotel, and amid all the changes of time, has maintained ' 
its early reputation. "Its front pavements have been bored, not for 
oil, but many a hickory shaft has been put down, and towering 
aloft with the stars and stripes given to the breeze, proclaimed it 
the " Old Tammany of Tompkins County." Its halls have been 
packed with untold conventions, and the affairs of the nation in all 
its changes have been discussed by a generation of patriots. 
Beneath its roof gathered the patriots of 1812, and were mustered 
into service; here was the roll call for the heroes of 1861, and the 


echoes of the tfaitors' gung had not died away from Fort Sumpter 
before the citiaiens of Tompkins gathered at the hearth-stone of the 
old wigwam, to offer their money and their lives for the defence of 
the Union. Its ceilings have echoed with the eloquence of DeWitt 
Clinton, Silas Wright, Martin Van Buren, and a host ot statesmen 
who have paised away. Venerable old pile ! May the dust of 
time gather lightly on thy brow." 

" The Cornell Library, owes its existence to the puWic spirit and 
munificence of Horn. Ezra Cornell, whose name it very appropriate- 
ly bears. It is located upon the corner of Tioga and Seneca streets 
in Ithaca ; having a front upon the former of sixty-eight feet, and a 
depth of one hundred. The building is of brick, three stories in 
^eighth, and so constructed as to be substantially fire-proof. 

"The idea in which this enterprise originated was to bring within 
the i'eaich of all classes,' freely and without cost to them,- the treas- 
ures ctf literature and science ; and to stimulate and encourage the 
intellectual growth of the communities within its influence. 

''In the accomplishment of this purpose, the clear, practical intel- 
lect of its founder foresaw, as the first condition of success, that the 
Institution should be self-supporting ; never a dependent upon the 
tardy bounty tot half aids and half destroys a needy enterprise ; 
but possessing within itself the means of independent existence, and 
pei-nldnent and sturdy growth. Accordingly, the edifice erected 
was pliinned so as to contain, not only the Library and its accesso- 
ries', but al^tf many rooms so admirably adapted to business pur- 
poses as to cofftmaTid, at all times in the future, a large and steadily 
Ihcreasihg renttill, and thus furnish strength and vitality to the Insti- 
tution, through the agency of a permanent and durable iticome. 

" The execution of this ;f)lan met the approval of the entire com- 
munity. The front of the building, on the first flodr, is now occu- 
pied by the post office, fitted up with an elegance and convenience 
rafely excelled ; and the First National Blank, whose business rooms, 
if not as gorgeous as those of the Metropolis, are at least as pleasant 
and cheerful ; wliile the rear of the building is devDted to offices, all 
adding their share to the support of the Library. Here also is the 
arsenal of the DeWitt Guards, arranged and adorned with a taste 
and elegance which does them credit ; their drill-room, large and 
convenient. The Library Hall, a room for public purposes, capa- 
ble of seating an audience of eight hundred persons, and lighted from 
the ceiling through globes of glass ; the Farmer's Club Room, 
whose museuin of curiosities and specimens of vegetable growths 
and mineral formations, have become both interesting and valuable ; 
and the Hall of the Historical Society, whose collection, needing 
only to be arranged and systematized, is rapidly advancing in inter- 
est and importance. ' 


"Prominent among the many rare curiosities, are to be found 
several specimens of art executed by the " American Photo-Litho- 
graphic Co.," of Brooklyn, N. Y., of which Mr. Cornell is President. 
The process of photo-lithographing, enables the reproduction of 
maps, engravings, charts, wood cuts &c., in enlarged or diminished 
size with great accuracy and rapidity. Persons wanting views &c., 
would by addressing the Company, corner Third Avenue and Tenth 
streets, Brooklyn, receive specimens of their work gratuitously. 

" From all these sources revenue flows, steadily and ungrudg- 
ingly, into the treasury of the Library, making it no dependent 
upon the charitable impulses of individuals or the public ; but able, 
within itself, abundantly to secure its own existence, and promote 
its own future improvement. And with the additional aid of the 
permanent endowments, soon to be made by the liberality of its 
founder, it will be able to act always independently and with effect, 
become a recognized power in the community, and largely mould 
and shape the mental and moral character within the circle of its 

" Its organization has another commendable element. It is neither 
sectarian nor partizan. All denominations are represented in its 
governing Board, and must continue to be. All parties and shades 
of parties have equal rights iu its management ; and the votes of 
the people which elect a president of the village, the votes of the 
firemen electing their chief engineer, the votes of the board of su- 
pervisors selecting their chairman, directly affect, through these 
officers, the character and material of the Library corporation. So 
that no partial or imperfect good is intended ; but one that is gen- 
eral, universal, equally open and free to all. 

" The Library itself is finished with great beauty and elegance. 
Its alcove-columns represent each of the varieties of our native for- 
est woods. The dark swarthy hue of the walnut, the delicate yel- 
low tracery of the pine, the warm veining of the beach and maple, 
the red glow of the cedar, the shining panels of the elm, the gnarled 
heart of the locust, the hard, white grain of the hickory, and 
the dusk shadings of the oak ; each, with their remaining associates 
of the forest, combine to make interesting and beautiful, this quiet 
abode of Literature and Science. Its alcoves are arranged in double 
stories, and are capable of holding forty or fifty thousand volumes, 
with a means of expansion anchenlargement to any extent which the 
good fortune of the future may make desirable. 

" The work of filling these waiting shelves with their silent but 
eloquent occupants has already begun. About four thousand vol- 
umes had been selected and purchased by Mr. Cornell, up to 
Dec. 1867; among which the glowing colors of Audubon's Birds 
of America, and the innumerable plates of the Incohographic Cyclo- 
pwdia, and the old, quaint volumes illustrating the early condition 


and architecture of London, indicate very clearly his purpose to 
make the Library collection one of great interest and excellence, 
and not to be baffled in its execution by even grave questions of 

"Attached to the Library, and so arranged as to be used in con- 
nection with it, are two Beading Booms, one intended to be exclu- 
sively occupied by ladies, and the other by gentlemen ; to be open 
and ready for use at all times; where will be found the newspapers 
and periodical excellence of the day, and where, it is hoped, a plea- 
sant and cheerful place will be found, to lure the young from the 
dissipation and revelry of idle days and wasted evenings-, to the 
pleasures of intellectual culture, and genial and improving society. 

" Much of these results is yet in the future, but the foundation 
upon which they are to rest is already secure ; and the pleasure- 
seeker who wanders amid the unrivalled scenery which marks the 
head waters of the Cayuga, when tired of the roar of waterfalls, or 
cool drip of cascades, or summer murmur of waves, will always 
find welcome and rest in the quiet and pleasant alcoves of the Cor- 
nell Library." It is expected that some 6000 or 7000 more vol-

The DeWitt Guard was organized as a military company in 
1851, and their first regular meeting was held 31st of December 
of that year. 

At that meeting a series of by-laws were adoj>ted, many of 
which are still in force, though none of the members of '51 are now 
connected with the organization. Jf any times has- the Company 
celebrated our National holidays, and received and entertained like 
companies from abroad, and have been by theiaa received in return. 
Pleasant memories are these to those who participated in them. — 
Members of the Company have served in our country's defence in 
the suppression of the late rebellion; some returned to their former 
home and vocation, while other's died in their country's service; 
some by the direful hand of disease, while a few fell while nobly 
vindicating their country's honor. In the fall of 1864 the Company 
served for one hundred days on guard duty over the rebel prisoners 
in Camp Elmira. Their drill roona is located in the Cornell Libra- 
ry Building. 

In a neat little volume of near 200 pages, published by the Com- 
pany, and entitled " History of the DeWitt Guard, Co. A, 50th 
Eegiment National Guard, State of New York," may be found a 
very complete history of the incidents connected with the pleasures, 
trials and privations, through which the Company has passed since 
its organization. 


The citizbns of Tompkins County would find it an entertaining 
work, and we understand it can be procured for a small sum at the 
book stores in Ithaea. Its closing paragraph reads as follows : — 

" We have endeavored to give, as we stated at the commence- 
ment, a full, true and concise history of the DeWitt Guard ; our 
task is completed ; and in closing, we only ask that a generous 
public will remember the present and former members of tkis Com- 
pany, who sacrificed so much for their country in the hour of her 
peril, and to bestow honor where honor is due." 

The Cornell Univeisity, chartered a few years ago by the Legis- 
latore, and located at Ithaea, is the crowning evidence of the public \ 
spirit and mumficence of Mr. Cornell, and no sketch of Ithaea would ; 
be complete without some notice of the institution. Mr. A. D. 
White, President of the University, speaks of it as follows : 

" In the educational annals of the State of New York like noblest 
deed by far is the foundation of the University at Ithaca by the Hon. ' 
Ezra Cornell. 

" The General Government had made, in 1 863, an appropriation ' 
of lands to the different States and Territories, for the' establish- j 
ment of colleges devoted to agricultural, mechanical and other arts 
and science*. Of this appropriation the share of NewTork was 
very nearly a million of acres. 

" Of course various parties rushed foi"ward to claim portions of! 
this generous provision. For a time it deemed destined to be scat- 
tered among all the institutions known as colleges throughout the 
State^and that thus the whole fund would be ftittered away. But 
into all this clamor quietly stepped Mr. Cornell, insisted that the 
fund, to be efficient, must be kept. together in one place, and agreed 
that he would give half a million of dollars to an institution to be 
established at Ithaca, profVided the State sboold give such institution 
the income of the new fund. 

" Despite much opposition, a law was passed chartering the Cor« 
nell University, and in September of 1865 the first business meet- 
ing of its Trustees was held at Ithaca, Gov, Fenton presiding. 

" Mr. Cornell's promises were far more than redeemed.. He gave 
into the hands of the Trustees not merely the 500,000 dollars, but a 
beautiful site and farm of over two hundred acres, besides the Jew- 
ett cabinet — the most complete of its kind in the country — which 
iiad recently cost him ten thousand dollars. Nor did his munifi- 
fience end here. In accordance with a provision in the charter, he 
gave $25,000 to found a professorship of agricnlture at Genesee Col- 
lege, and invested an additional sum of 50,0CK) dollars for the Uni- 

"The plans for building embrace large d<»mi>»tories, lectjire and 
redtation rooms, public halls, library, museum^ laboratory, work- 
shops, farm buildings, dwellings, &c. It is intended to erect them 


from time to time from the interest of the Cornellfund, astheymay 
be needed. It is agreed that while the huildings ought to be sub- 
stantial and tasteful, there shall be no attempt at display. 

" The general arrangement will be in large quadrangles, as most 
convenient and effective. 

"The site is of surpassing beauty. A plateau over three hun- 
dred feet above the level of Cayuga Lake, bordered on one side by 
the Cascadilla and on the other by Fall Creek, gives a noble place 
for the buildings and ornamental grounds. 

" Back of these is the great college farm; on either side are ravines, 
rOjCks and falls of water, combining not less beautifully than those 
at Trenton. 

" In front, stretching far to the right as eye can reach, are the 
beautiful waters of Lake Cayuga, — directly in front is the tidy and 
thriving village of Ithaca, its spires and towers rising amid masses 
of foliage — and to the left sweeps a bold range of hills, diversified 
with groves and cultivated fields and dotted with farm-houses, clos- 
ing in the whole scene as with the walls of an amphitheatre. It is a 
seat worthy the ideal which it is believed Mr. Cornell's munificence 
will make real." 

"We make the following extracts from the first general announce- 
ment by the Trustees and officers of the University... 

"The first term of the University, will open on the last "Wednes- 
day in September, 1868, with the inauguration of the President 
and Professors. 

" The Departments and Courses will be organized as follows : 
"Division of Special Sciences and Arts. — 1. The Department of", 
Agriculture; 2. the Department of the Mechanic Arts; 3. the De- 
partment of Civil Engineering ; 4. the Department of Military En- 
gineering and Tactics ; 5. the Department of Mining and Practical 
Geology ; 6. the Department of History, Social and Political 

" In all the instruction in these Departments a constant effort 
will be made to educate men to speedily become practically useful 
in developing the resources and in aiding in the general progress of 
the country. 

" In the Department of Agriculture, science and practice will go 
together, not to rear a body of amateur agriculturists, but to bring 
scientific methods to bear in ordinary agriculture, so that tried by an 
economic test the result shall be to advance the prosperity of the 
country. Special attention will be given to the education of young 
men, ambitious to become instructors and professors in the numer- 
ous agricultural colleges now rising in nearly all the States of the 

" In the Department of the " Mechanic Arts," science will also be 
applied to practice ; iStting men to take positions of influence and 


usefulness, in developing the manufacturing and mechanical re- 
sources and interests of the country. Special attention •will be paid 
to the practical education of those who wish to take charge of manu- 
factories and work shops of various sorts. 

" In the Department of Civil Engineering the same idea of mak- 
ing thoroughly scientific men for speedy practical use will be car- 
ried out. 

"The Bepartmentof Military Engineering and ^acf/c* it is hoped 
to place under the supervision of graduates of the National Acade- 
my at West Point. 

"The Department of Mining and Practical Geology has for its 
aim the fitting of men to develop the vast mineral resources of the 
nation. When it is considered what immense losses have been in- 
curred under the management of unscientific or half-scientific men, 
the importance of this Department will be recognized. Situated as 
the University is near one of the greatest mining districts of the 
United States, it presents special attractions to all students desiring 
real preparation for work of the kind contemplated. 

" In the Department of History, Social and Political Science, the 
need of the country for a higher and more thorough education for 
the public service, will be constantly kept in view. Principles as 
thought out by Economists,,Statesmeh and Historians will be con- 
stantly applied to what has been actually wrought out in society. 
The Trustees will endeavor, in questions of Political Economy, upon 
which good and able men differ, to have both sides ably presented 
and discussed. No attempt will be made, however, to proselyte 
students to any peculiar or partisan views. 

" In the Division of Science, Literature and the Arts in General, 
the following course will be adopted : 

" 1 . First General Course, or " Modern Coursed — ^This will ex- 
tend through four years. To Modern Languages, which have be- 
come so indispensable in a good education, will be mainly assigned 
the place and labor usually given to Ancient Languages. The 
course will be suited to, the needs of students, so far as possible, by 
the allowance of options between studies in the latter years of the 
course, oft a plan somewhat similar to that lately adopted at Har- 
vard University. 2. "Modern Course Abridged." — ^ITiis course 
will extend through three yeajrs. This, as well as the abridged 
courses which follow, are intended to meet the needs of those stu- 
dents who have not time for a full general course. It will give the 
main studies of the extended course, the subordinate studies being 
omitted so as to decrease the time one year. 3. Second General 
Course, or " Combined Course." — ^This course will extend through , 
four years. In this the languages studied will be Latin and German, 
the remainder of the course being essentially the same as the " Gen- 
eral Course." To those who wish to ,make a thorough study of 


Modern Languages this course will be valuable, as combining the 
most useful parts, practically, of the courses usually pursued in Col- 
leges, with a broader course ; giving the two sides of all the great 
Modern Languages and literatures, including our own, and aiding 
the scientific student greatly in the literature and nomenclature of 
science. 4. " Combined Course Abridged." — ^This will extend 
through three years. Its name explains its character. 5. Third 
General Course or " Classical Course." — This will be mainly like the 
" First General Course," with the option of Ancient Languages for 
Modern. 6. " Scientific Course." — This will extend through three 
years, aifording a general scientific preparation for either of the 
first four departments in the " First Division," as named above. A 
special effort will be made to bring this Department fully up to the 
needs of the times, both by the course adopted and by the professors 
elected to maintain it. 7. Scientific Course Abridged. — This will 
extend through two years. Its name explains its character. 8. 
Optional Course. — This is similar to that allowed American stu- 
dents in the greater German Universities ; also like the " Select 
Course " at the University of Michigan ; and which, in both cases, 
has been very successful. In this course the student, on cond\ilta- 
tion with friends and the appropriate instructors, selects any three 
studies for which he may be fitted, from the whole range of studies 
pursued in the entire University, follows them up to such point as 
may be agreed upon, and receives, from the Governing Board of 
the University, at the completion of his work, a certificate, showing 
the extent of the course he has taken. 9. Degrees, Diplomas and 
Certificates. — Appropriate degrees, attested by diplomas or certifi- 
cates, will be conferred upon all students passing satisfactorily 
through any of the above named departments or courses. But it 
is thoroughly to be understood that no distinction will be made 
between the course extending through four years, as to the name, 
character or value of the degree or diploma, and the Trustees pledge 
themselves to use every effort to prevent any caste-spirit in any de- 
partment or course as compared with another." 

"All candidates for admission to any department or course must 
present satisfactory evidences of good moral character. 

"All candidates for admission to any of the special departments 
in the " First Division " must be at least sixteen years of age. All 
candidates for admission to any of the courses of the •* Second Di- 
vision " must be at least fifteen years of age. 

" Candidates for advanced standing will be examined in the pre- 
vious srtudies of the course which they purpose to enter, and if they 
come from another College or University will present certificates 
of honorable dismission. 

" Entering the University will be considered a pledge to obey its 
rules and regulations. 


"Candidates for admission to any department or course must have 
received a good common English education, and be morally, men- 
tally and physically qualified to pursue to advantage the course of 
study to which they propose to give their attention." 

" The fees for tuition to persons not exempt under the charter as 
" State Students," are ten dollars for each term, or thirty dollars for 
the year. Neither matriculation fees nor initiation fees are required. 

" In special oases of students of decided merit, who are proven 
to be in great need, a remission may be made, either wholly or in 
part, of tuition fees, such remission being considered as a loan, the stu- 
dent giving a note or promise to pay them so soon as he shall be- 
come able after leaving the University. In all other cases payment 
for each term must be made in advance. Students will be held re- 
sponsible for any injury which may be done by them to the Uni- 
versity property." 

" One large stone building, 165 by 50 feet, and four stories in 
height, has already been erected ; another of the same size is in 
progress. In these, besides dormitories, are library, lecture and 
recitation rooms, over thirty in number, and of various sizes. — 
There will be two laboratories well equipped, one under the direc- 
tion of the Professor of Agricultural Chemistry, and the other un- 
der the Professor of General Chemistry. The University already 
possesses the Jewett collection in Palaeontology and Geology, at a 
cost of ten thousand dollars, and has received a donation from the 
State of a collection of duplicates from the State Geological collec- 
tion, and has funds now in hand to make large additional collections 
for illustration in the different departments. The Trustees feel war- 
ranted in stating that the University will commence with a scien- 
tific and general library sufficient for the immediate wants of Facul- 
ty and Students, and constant appropriations will be made for its in- 

Mr. Cornell has just purchased the Library of the late Dr. An- 
thon for the University. It consists of about 7000 volumes, and is 
one of the best and most complete classical Libraries in the country. 
President "White sailed for Europe in March, where he will make 
large purchases of foreign books suited to the wants of the Univer- 
sity. He hopes to return in July when the final steps in the process 
of orgahization will be taken. 

The indications are that a large number of students will be in at- 
tendance at the opening of the University in September. The ap- 
plications have been very, numerous, and are steadily upon the 

"It is intended to erect workshops upon the University property 
where students, under proper direction, can have practical instruction 
in Mechanic Arts. The first of these will be a workshop fitted 
with the proper machinery for working in wood and iron, in which 


students can labor at fair prices upon agricultural implements and 
machinery in general, and upon models for the University collec- 
tions of machinery and apparatus. 

"Accomplished artisans will superintend this work, and the at- 
tention of those young men who would qualify themselves, by sci- 
entific study, for the most responsible and remunerative positions 
as master mechanics and superintendents of workshops, is recom- 
mended to this feature in the course of practical instruction. 

" The following prizes are offered by the Founders of the Univer- 
sity to aid meritorious students :

" Relations of the University to the State, — The act organizing 
the Cornell University makes it an organic part of the educational 
system of the State. The Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, Secre- 
tary of State, Superintendent of Public Instruction and Speaker of 
the House of Assembly are ex-offleio Trustees. The President of 
the State Agricultural Society is also ex-officio a member of the 
Board. It may be mentioned here, that the Board of Trustees are 
not a body sitting for life, but that they are constantly renewed, the 
term of office being five years ; three being selected every year — 
one of them by the Alumni whenever they shall number fifty. 
This, it is hoped, will do much to ensure vigor and prevent the stag- 
nation from which so many institutions of learning have suffered. 

" Scope of the University. — ^The special departments referred to 
above will be developed conscientiously and as thoroughly as pos- 
sible. The prominence plainly given the first two by the Act of 
Congress will be loyally remembered. It must also be constantly 
recollected that education is here to be made, not only scientific, 
but practical. Military education will also be provided for. More- 
over, the Trustees are also pledged to try fully and fairly the ex- 
periment of allowing students in appropriate departments to do 
something towards paying their way by organized manual labor, 
under scientific direction. This, however, will be voluntary, as the 
freedom of our University demands. 

" But beside these fecial departments, the Trustees provide, in 
accordance with the clearly expressed intent of the Congressional 
act, general instruction. Mr. Cornell's gift is made in order to 
round the whole institution into the proportions of an University 
worthy of the State. He expressed plainly and tersely the whole 
University theory when he said, '/ would found an institution 
where any person can find instruction in any study* 

" Features of the University. —First. Every effort will he made 
th(U the education given he practically useful. The idea of doing a 
student s mind some vague general good by studies which do not 


interest him, will not control. The constant policy -will be to give 
mental discipline to every student ly studies which take practical 
hold upon the tastes, aspirations and work of his life. 

" Second. There is to be University liberty of choice. Several 
courses carefully arranged will be presented, and the student, aided 
by friends and instructors, can make his choice among them. 

" When we consider that young men are constantly obliged to 
make choice unaided in regard to matters of even more difficulty 
and danger than courses of study, it will not be thought so abso- 
lutely necessary that but one single course should be allowed, and 
all men of all minds forced to fit it. 

" Third. There will be no Fetichism in regard to any single 
studies. All good studies will be allowed their due worth. While 
the beauty and worth of ancient classics will not be denied, it is 
hoped to give the study of modern classics, especially those of our 
own language, a far more important place than they have hitherto 
held in our colleges. Special attention will be paid to these. 

" Fourth. Historical studies and studies in Political and Social 
science will be held in high honor, and will have more attention 
than is usual in our higher institutions of learning. Beside thorough 
regular courses, it is intended to present special courses of lectures 
by non-resident professors of eminence. 

"Fifth, There will be no petty daily marking system, a pedantic 
device, which has eaten out from so many colleges all capacity 
among students to seek knowledge for knowledge's sake. Those 
professors will be sought who can stir enthusiasm, and who can thus 
cause students to do far more than under a perfunctory piecemeal 

" Sixth.. It enters into the plan adopted by the Board of the Cor- 
nell University to bring about a closer and more manly intercourse 
and sympathy between Faculty and students than is usual in most 
of the colleges. 

" Seventh. The study of Human Anatomy, Physiology and Hy- 
giene, with exercises for physical training, will be most carefully 
provided for. 

"Eighth. The Cornell University, as its highest aim, seeks to 
promote Christian civilization. But it cannot be sectarian. Estab- 
lished by a general government which recognizes no distinctions in 
creed, and by a citizen who holds the same view, it would be false 
to its trust were it to seek to promote any creed or to exclude any. 

" The State of New York, in designating this institution as the 
recipient of the bounty of the general government, has also declared 
the same doctrine. By the terms of the charter, no trustee, pro- 
fessor or student can be accepted or rejected on account of any re- 
ligious or political opinions which he may or may not hold. 


"The success of the University of Michigan, where the Faculty 
comprises men of all religious sects and of all parties, is a sufficient 
refutation ofthose who assert that an institution of learning must 
be sectarian to be successful." 

The present Trustees are as follows : 

*His Excellency, Reuben E. Fenton, Governor; *His Honor, 
Stewart L. Woodford, Lieutenant-Governor; *Hon. Edmund L. 
Pitts, Speaker; *Gen. Marsena R. Patrick, President State Agri- 
cultural Society ; *Hon. Victor M. Rice, Superintendent of Pub- 
lic Instruction ; *Hon. Ezra Cornell, Chairman of Board of Trus- 
tees; *Hon. Andrew D. White, President of the University; 
*Francis M. Finch, Esq., iiSrarian Cornell Public Library ; *Alon- 
zo B. Cornell, Esq., Ithaca ; Hon. Horace Greeley, New York ;— 
Hon. Edwin D. Morgan, New York; Hon. Erastus Brooks, New 
York ; Hon. William Kelly, Rhineheck ; Gen. J. Meredith Read, 
Albany ; H«n. George H. Andrews, Springfield, Otsego Co.; Hon. 
Abram B. Weaver, Beerfield, Oneida Co.; Hon. Charles J. Folger, 
Geneva; Hon. Edwin B. Morgan, ^wroro ; Hon. John M. Par- 
ker, Owego; Hiram Sibley, Esq., i2ocAe«fer ; Hon. Josiah B. Wil- 
liams, Ithaca; Hon. George W. Schuyler, Ithaca, Treasurer of the 
University; William Andrus, Esq., /iJAaca; John MoGraw, Esq., 

Among the many fine buildings of Ithaca, we must not forget 
the splendid block recently built by Wilgus Brothers & Co., on 
the corner of State and Tioga Streets. In size and grandeur it 
rivals the splendid Cornell Library Building. Two thirds of the 
ground floor is occupied by the Messrs. Wilgus Brothers & Co., for 
the sale of dry goods, &c., and is one of the largest stores out- 
side the great cities. The remainder of the lower floor will be oc- 
cupied by another house, also as a dry goods store. The second 
floor is devoted to offices, and the third and fourth, in one, as an 
immense public hall, which will be fitted up in magnificent style. 
Altogether the edifice is an additional evidence of the prosperity of 
this beautiful village. 

The commercial interests of the place are extensive and impor- 
tant. A daily line of steamboats on the lake, running between this 
place and Cayuga Bridge, in connection with the D. L. & W. R. 
R., serves to connect the Erie R. R. on the south with the N. Y. 
Central on the north. The lake is also a link in the great chain of 
the internal water navigation of the State, and upon it a large 
amount of canal commerce, centering at Ithaca, is carried on. The

transhipment of Scranton and Lackawanna coal brought by the Cay- 
uga Branch of the D. L. & W. E, R., forms an important and 
constantly increasing branch of business. A large portion of the 
anthracite coal for the northern and western markets is supplied 
through this avenue. 

The village was incorporated April 2, 1821. Its present popu- 
lation is about 6000. The census of 1865 gives it at 5,700. Free 
Hollow is a manufacturing hamlet on Fall Creek, about a mile and 
a half above Ithaca. 

The first settlement of the town was made by Jacob Yaple, Isaac 
Dumond and Peter Hinepaw, revolutionary soldiers, who located 
on the present site of Ithaca village in 1789. The land that they 
occupied had previously been partly cultivated by the Indians. — 
Among the other early settlers were families named McDowel, 
Davenport, Bloom, King, Patchin, Star, Conrad, Markle, Sayers 
and Brink. The first child born was a daughter of John Dumond, 
Sept. 1789. Henry Yaple, who still resides at Danby, or Caro- 
line, was the first white male child born, Aug. 28, 1791. The first 
death was that of Rachel Allen, in 1790. 

In 1792 a man named Lightfoot came up the lake with a boat-load 
of goods, and entering the inlet, landed near the present steamboat 
landing. Here he erected a shanty, where he continued an itener- 
ant trade for a number of years. 

The first frame house was erected about the year 1800, by Abram 
Markle. The carpenter employed was a Mr. Delano, to whom 
Luther Gere was then apprenticed. The first regular and estab- 
lished merchant was Mr. David Quigg ; Doctor Frisbee was the 
first physician ; Oliver Wisewell the first lawyer ; Rev. Mr. Man- 
deville the first minister ; a Mr. Howe the first school teacher ; a 
Mr. Belcher the first singing teacher ; Peleg Chesebrough was the 
first tailor ; Hudson Gaskil the first blacksmith ; a Mr, Agar the 

first silversmith ; Hartshorn kept the first inn, and Jacob 

Yaple built the first mill in 1790. There was a post-office estab- 
lished here in 1804, and Richard W. Pelton was the first post- 

As early as 1810, Ithaca was regarded as one of the most thriv- 
ing and promising villages of the interior. 

The first church (Presbyterian) was organized in 1804-05, with 
seven members. 

There were in 1867, 10 public schools, employing 36 teachers, 
with an average daily attendance of 689. The expenditure for 
school purposes during the year was $9,788.21. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 7,264. It embraces an 
area of 17,963f acres, of which 14,241} are improved and 3,722 J 
unimproved . There are in the town 97} miles of public road. 


LANSIHTG was formed from Genoa, (Cayuga Co.,) April 7, 
1867. It lies upon the east bank of Cayuga Lake, in the north 
part of the County. The surface is principally a rolling upland, ly- 
ing about five hundred feet above the lake. Bordering the lake in 
many places, perpendicular ledges of rock rise from twenty to fifty 
feet, and at others the land forms a continuous slope from the top 
of the bluffs to the water's edge. The soil is generally a fertile 
gravelly loam, well .adapted to grain or grass. 

The principal stream is Salmon Creek, which, taking its rise in 
Cayuga County, flows south through near the center of the town. 
Its valley is narrow and bordered by steep hillsides. Its principal 
tributaries are Gulf, Townley and Hedden Creeks. Numerous 
smaller streams find their way over falls and through guUeys to the 

Ludlowville, (p. v.) situated on Salmon Creek, about a mile from 
its mouth, is the principal village. It contains several manufactur- 
ing establishments, stores, churches, and nearly three hundred in- 
habitant. Lansingville, (p. v.) on the ridge west of Salmon Creek, 
in the north part of the town, contains a little over one hundred in- 
habitants. North Lansing, (p. o.) in the north-east corner ; Lake 
Ridge, (p. o.) on the bluff above the lake in the north-west corner, and 
Libertyville, (South Lansing p. o.) are hamlets, ^ast Lansing, \ 
near the center of the east part, and Potest City, on the lake, in 
the south part, are post offices. 

In this town at least one of the unfortunate soldiers of Sullivan's 
army, captured by the Indians, was tortured and burned. , 

The first settlement in the town was made by a family named 
Depew, who located at the mouth of Salmon Creek, in 1791. 

In the fall of that year, or spring of 1792, Silas Ludlow settled 
half a mile west of Ludlowville, Henry Ludlow and his sons 
Thomas and Henry, came in about the same time. Richard and 
Charles Townley came in from New Jersey, in 1793 ; and also a 
family by the name of Himrod, who settled at what is now called 
Himrod's Point. The Teeters, Goodwins and Blooms settled in 
the east and south part of the town, in 1794. Henry and Thomas 
Ludlow built the first grist mill in 1795, just below the falls on Sal- 
mon Creek. It was a rough log building, about twenty feet square. 
Jonah Tooker kept the first store. Thomas Ludlow was the first 
post-master, and William Boyse kept the first inn, at Libertyville. 
The first night of his stay in the house a rattle-snake crept into the 
bed and slept with his children. 

The census of 1865 reports eight churches in the town. There 
are 20 public schools, employing 37 teachers, with an average daily 
attendance of 372 scholars. The amount of expenditures for school 
purposes during the year 1867 was $4,978.50. The population of 


t p'.own in 1865 was 2,940. It embraces an area of 35,696 acres, 
; (vnich 28,476 are improved, and 7,220 unimproved. There are 
in the town 145i- miles of public roads. 

WEWFIULD yra.a formed from Spencer, (Tioga Co.,) as 
" Cayuta," Feb. 22, 181 1. Its name was changed March 29, 1 822, 
and a part was annexed to Catharine, (Schuyler Co.,) in 1853. It 
is the south-west corner town in the County. The surface is high 
and hilly, the ridges being 400 to 600 feet above the vallej s, and 
1,500 to 1,700 feet above tide water. 

The streams are Cayuga Inlet, the south branch of Enfield Creek, 
Carter Creek and their tributaries. 

The valleys of the streams are usually narrow and bordered by 
steep hill-sides. A portion of the west part of the town is yet un- 

The soil is a shaly and clayey loam, and is well adapted to gram 
growing or grazing. 

Newfield, (p. v.) an enterprising village, is situated in the north- 
east part of the town, on the west branch of Cayuga Inlet, It cor;- 
tains three churches, two flouring mills, a saw mill, woolen factory, 
carriage shops, planing mill, tannery, several stores, &c. It has a 
population of between four and five hundred inhabitants. Trum- 
bull's Corners, (p. v.) on the north border, is a small village. 
Foney Hollow, (p. o.) is a hamlet in the south-west part. 

Thomas located at Poney Hollow and was the first settler. 

Among the other early settlers were S. Chambers, Elijah Moore, 

Carter, and Daniel ^B. Swartwood ; Jeremiah Hall kept the 

first inn, George Dudley the first store, and John Greene built the 

first mill. , , , . .... 

There are in the town 23 public schools, employmg 44 teachers 
with an average daily attendance of 341 scholars. The aniount of 
expenditures for school purposes during the year 1867, was $4,087.- 
48. The population of the town in 1865 was 2,700. It embraces 
an area of 34,891} acres, of which 23,491 } are improved and 11 ,400 
unimproved. There are in the town 141 } miles of public roads. 

VLTS8ES, named after one of the heroes of Homer, and 
ruler of ancient Ithaca, was formed March 5, 1799, and was No. 22 
of the original townships in the Military Tract. Dryden was carved 
out of it in 1803, and Ithaca and Enfield in 1821. It lies upon 
the west bank of Cayuga Lake, and is the north-west corner town 
in the County. A range of bluffs, about six hundred feet high, with 
steep declivities, borders upon the lake ; and from their summits 
the surface spreads out in an undulating upland. The soil is an ex- 
cellent quality of gravelly loam, producing fine crops of gram and 


grass. Taghkanic Creek flows through the town from the west, and 
is the principal stream. Trumansburgh Creek, in the north part, 
and several other smaller streams, flow into the lake. On all of 
these streams are beautiful cascades. On Taghkanic Creek, about 
a mile from the lake, are the celebrated Taghkanic .Falls, — the 
highest perpendicular waterfkll in the State. They have worn 
a deep gorge in the yielding shales, with banks three hundred and 
eighty feet high. The sheet now falls, in an unbroken sheet, over 
a limestone terrace about 215 feet in height. Many attempts have 
been made to describe the falls, but they all come so far short of 
the reality and give such an imperfect idea of the real beauty of 
this gem of the lake, that we will be readily excused from attempt- 
ing a lengthy description, though we cannot refrain from making a 
few extracts from Mr. Spencer'a "Head Waters of Cayuga Lake," 
in regard to them. 

The first is taken from quite a lengthy article by "Wm. H. Bo- 

" All the journey up the ravine is a demand on our admiration, 
for the gorge is walled in by vast heights — of bare and of wooded 
rock. They rise treeless, and as if they would exhibit to us all the 
processes of geological condition, or so densely covered with forest, 
as that there seems a perpetual mystery in their concealment. — 
Especially as we near the Fall, there is on the left hand, or south 
side, far and deep episodes of glen within the greater glen, leading 
off to invite us to explore them and detaining us from the onward 
progress. Few do make the exploration, and they abide summer 
and winter, nooks and recesses of woodland, the very chosen home 
of the Fawn and the Dryad, if the mystery of mythology were yet 
interlaced with our forest life. The bold heights are pinnacled and 
castellated, and the sky seems like a narrow river of blue ether 
flowing above us. We forget the ruderoading in the study of this 
wildly written chapter of creation. We turn out of one of these 
deep wood paths to the right, and upon us is the Taghkanic — the 
most winning and beautiful of Falls. That pure veil of misty 
water, turning into woven air, almost from the instant it leaves the 
brow of the precipice, and so gently, so sweetly changing into foam 
—pure silver threaded wool like foam — and at last not dashing or 
breaking, but gliding into the chasm below. There are what seem, 
diflfei:ent fibres, (if we may use that word,) of the water that make 
up thfe Fall and these are intermingled in sweetness of union. The 
water has a descent so free that it seems to use a leisure of move- 
ment, and it is easy to enumerate the sections in the time of the 
fall. Beneath it nearly all the way, the rock is visible, jind there is 
a foliage there that is thus perpetually bathed by the crystal cas- 
cade. It is a very diamond of beauty, set in all the rugged anji 
fierce scenery of that dark and wild glen. It is like a fairy sur- 


rounded by a rude guard of giants. It is a surprise of loveliness 
amidst darkness and gloom. The glen has intended to give a great 
amphitheatre for the Fall, which true to its shy sweetness of notice, 
occupies but brief space in that extended circle. A little pool seems 
to be in constant attendance at the foot of the cascade, as if lingering 
to talk to the Taghkanic, before it should tell the story of its far 
leap, to the Cayuga, to which it is to hasten. Great mounds of de- 
bris are beneath the clifis, and boulders are scattered in profusion, 
welcome seats and convenient tables to those who are fascinated to 
linger here." 

The second extract is a poetic gem, entitled 


On the brow of the delicate streamlet, 

In the folds of its forest hair, 
I see the gems of a bridal, 

The pearls ot a peerless pair. 

The rill of the shadowy woodland, 

Runs to the Lake with a spring ; 
The Indian maid, Tashkanic, 

Weds the Cayuga King. 

In the shade of the murmuring maple 

Wait, fair girl, at my side, 
Till I lift your wondering lashes 

On the dainty lace of the bride. 

Nearer your tremulous footstep ; 

Yonder the flash of your eye ; 
Through the break of the marginal leaflets. 

Where the mist sails up to the sky. 

Yon see it : — I know by the color 

That tells me its rose-red tale ; 
You see, in the frame of the forest. 

The lace of the bridal veil. 

Over the rock it is floating : — 

It is woven of diamonds or spray ; 
Of molten pearl or of star-dust? — 

Tell me the fabric, I pray. 

Yon answer me only with dimples 

Hid in a tinting ^ rose, 
A.nd the light of our own near bridal 

Under your eyelid glows. 

The Indian maid, Taghkanic, * 

Weds with the Sapphire King ;— 
But a dearer and daintier bride 

The bloomings of June shall bring. 


Trumantburgh, (p. v.) near the north border of the town, has a 
population of near 1,400, and is the second village in the County in 
size and amount of business. 

It contains four churches, one academy, two banks, one tannery, 
a number of stores, shops, &c. It has also an extensive iron foundry 
and machine shop ; that of Messrs. Gregg, Plyer & Co. They em- 
ploy a large force of men, and their business materially adds to the 
welfare of the place. 

Jacksonville, (p. v.) near the center of the town, is an enter- 
prising place of about 300 inhabitants. Waterhurgh, (p. v.) near 
the west border, contains several manufacturing establishments, 
and about 150 inhabitants. Halseyville, on Taghiianic Creek, is a 

On Trumansburgh Creek there are, within a short distance below 
the village, two grist mills and a plaster mill. Several valuable 
stone quarries are being worked in the banks of both streams, and ^| 
limestones abound along the banks of the lake. 

" In this town, near Waterburgh, are located the remains of an 
old earthwork, or fortification, supposed by some to be the work of 
a race inhabiting this country prior to the Indians. Little of it now 
remains, but enough to indicate its character. 

"Hon. Herman Camp, of Trumansburgh, a few years ago, visited 
this locality, and says that, about half a mile west of Waterburgh, 
on the north side of the road, in the woods, this artificial ridge of 
earth still remains. On the west end of it stands a large pine 
stump, between three and four feet in diameter, and from this point 
\he owner of the land, Mr. Hart, says there were traces of a palisade. 
On the south side of the road is a field, on four acres of which the 
owner, Mr. Sherwood, has found (when plowing,) great numbers of 
bones, but in such a broken and decayed state, as to make it diffi- 
cult to determine whether they are human bones or not." 

" Mr. Hunt also says, that he has seen a human skull disinterred 
on his part of what has long been called the " Indian Fort and Bury- 
in<5 Ground." Numerous stones, of different sizes, ground to an 
edge at one end, and fragments of coarse earthen or stone vessels, 
and pipes, have been found on this ground." 

"Dr. Lewis, of Trumansburgh, has the bones of a man, found 
imbedded in the earth, attached to the roots of a tree, between two 
and three feet in diameter, which was blown down about a mile east 
of Waterburgh. Mr. Camp's conclusion is that this was once an 
Indian encampment, covering five or six acres, enclosed and defend- 
ed by slight earth-works, on the solid ground, and palisades on the 
low soft ground; and-that the bones scattered about in such num- 
bers, are part human, and part those of animals used for food." 

"This is one of several similar structures found occupying the 
most commanding positions in Western New York, and some of 


the Western States. Their great antiquity is proved, not only by 
the large growth of timber with which they are covered, but by the 
fact that the Indians who occupied the country when the whites 
took possession, had no knowledge of their origin, either by tradi- 
tion or otherwise." ' 

This antiquity, and the manner in which they are constructed, 
certainly gives some color to the theory of Gov. Clinton and others, 
that they were erected by a people far more advanced in civiliza- 
tion, or at least in the art of defensive warfare, than the present 
race of Indians. 

This town furnished the first and only volunteer company of cav- 
alry in Western New York, for the war of 1812. 

The first settlements ■ were commenced by Samuel Weyburn, in 
1790, at the mouth of Taghkanic Creek, or what is now called Good- 
win's Point. Abner Treman came in during 1793. He had been 
a Revolutionary soldier, and received lot No. 2, containing 640 
acres, as a bounty from the Government. John McLallen, who 
came in with Mr. Treman, soot after opened the first inn at Tru- 
' mansburgh. His brothers, Robert and Henry, and Mr. Treman's 
brothers, Philip and Jared, followed them tw) or three years later. 
Moses and Jesse Harreman came in about the year 1795, and Jesse 
received of Abner Treman one hundred acres of land, on lot No. 2, 
for one year's labor, clearing lanc^. David Atwater was an early 
settler, and located about half a ,mile above Taghkanic Falls, in 
1796. Abner Treman built the first grist-naill in 1794. He went 
east to procure mill-stones and a bolt for his mill, and on his re- 
turn, when between the head o^the lake and Goodwin's Point, he 
nearly perished with cold, in the deep snow, having nothing to 
guide him but a few marked trees. His feet and hands were so 
badly frozen that he became a cripple for life. 

The first school was taught by Stephen Woodworth, and the first 
merchant was a Mr. Henshaw. He opened a store at Trumans- 
burgh in 1802. In Dec. 1805, he was succeeded by W. & N. Camp, 
merchants at Owego, who established a branch store in Henshaw's 
building, in charge of their brother, Herman Camp, as clerk and 

The first church edifice was built of unhewn logs, for the First 
Presbyterian Society, in 1803, at which time the church was organ- 
ized. It was located at Updike's Settlement, and was taken down 
but a few years since. Grove Cemetery is large, well laid out, 
adorned with trees and shrubbery, and is one of the most beautiful 
in the County.

There are in the town fourteen public schools, emplioying twenty-? 
nine teachers, with an average daily attendance of .321 scholars. — 
The amount of expenditures for school purposes during the year 
1867 was $5,558.17. 

The population of the town, in 1865, was 3,506. It embraces an 
area of 20,567f acres, of which 17,732 are improved, and 2,835f 
unimproved. There are in the town 96J miles of public roads.

First among thps,e,js,,the ia,tg.,SurvgyotrQaHeir^Vfl.f"the State of 
New York, Simeon t)e. Wit^t^ .,4ljth.P.ugh f'^'J-'liQAWiitt was never 
a permanent resident of the .Cpuiity, ^BV. the r^*sPB itfeat his official 
duties required much of his tiipe in Albany,: ye.tifeis interests were 
here, and Ithaca was the place he had selected, for, his future home. 


He was a descendant qf the family of De Witts of Holland, a 
branch of which emigrated and settled in this State at an early 

Gen. De Witt was born at Wawarsing, Ulster Co, N. Y., on the 
25th of December, 1756. His father was a physician, of good re- 
pute, but of limited means, and charged with the maintenance and 
culture of a large family. A classical education at that early day 
was obtained with difficulty, and at great expense; but Dr. DeWitt, 
discovering in his son the germs of a rich mind and decided charac- 
ter, determined to ^ive him the advantages of a liberal education. 

He entered Queen's (now Rutger's) College, at New Brunswick, 
New Jersey, and graduated in 1776^ receiving the two highest honors 
of his class. 

Beturning home, he pursued his studies, as he found opportunity, 
passing much of his time in the family of Gen. James Clinton, 
whose wife was his aunt. Here he formed an intimacy with his 
cousin, De Witt Clinton, which continued during their lives. 

With Gen. Clinton, and his brother. Governor George Clinton, 
he was a great favoritcij and it was from communion with such men, 
and the teachings of his honored father, that he imbibed those great 
principles of true patriotism which his whole life illustrated. 

During the next year the formidable invasion of Burgoyne, roused 
all the military spirit of the country, and a batallion was organized 
in Ulster County, to join the army of General Gates^ and Mr. De- 
Witt was chosen its adjutant. 

' On arriving at the seat of war, the batallion was incorporated 
into a regiment already existing, and being thus deprived of his of- 
ficial position, he stepped into the ranks and partook of the perils 
of the battle, and triumphs of the victory. 

Heturning from this campaign, he resumed his studies, devoting 
himself principally to Mathematics and Geometry. 

Shortly aflerj General Washington in arranging his topographical 
staff, made inquiry of Governor CJlinton, for a person qualified to 
act as assistant GeOgi'apher to the army, and upon the prompt re- 
commendation of the Govei'nor and his brother, Mr. De Witt was 
appointed, in 1778, Assistant to Col. Robert Erskine, then Geogra- 
pher in Chief. On the death of Col. Erskine, in 1780, he was nomi- 
nated by General Washington to the vacant ofHoe, and on the 4th 
of Sfeptembei-i (when not quite 24 years old,) appointed by Con- 
gress Geographer to the Army of the United States. From that 
time to the close of the war and the disbanding of the army, he was 
attached to the staff 6f his illustrious Colhmander, employed with 
his assistants in surveying the ground around and in advance of the 
route of the army, iintil the labors of his corps was terminated at 
YorktoWn, by the surrender of Cornwallis. 


It was his signal good fortune to witnsss the surrender of the 
two Royal Armies. 

The fidelity and accuracy with which Mr. De Witt discharged 
his duty, amid the dangers and disconjforts of the field, are beauti- 
fully illustrated by the maps and plans, the records 0;f his work, 
now among the documents of the New Yorlc Historical Society. 

On the 13th of May, 1784, Mr. De Witt succeeded General Schuy- 
ler, as Surveyor-General of the State of New York, which office he 
held until the day ofhisdeath, a, period of more than half a century. 

In 1786, the Surveyor-General was associated with Generals 
Schuyler and Clinton, of New York, and Messrs. Rittenhouse and 
Ellicott, of Pennsylvania, to determine the boundary line between 
those States, the unsettled condition of which had led to trouble- 
some interference of State jurisdiction. 

The boundary was established in a mostsatis&otory manner, and 
the commission closed in the succeeding year. 

,The same year President Washington, wiithout {lis solicitation or 
knowledge, nominated Gen. D;e Witt to the Senate, as Surveyor- 
General of the United States, and the appointment was promptly 
confirmed. This event he alyraya regarded as the most gratifying 
in his public life. 

His selection for such an office, by one who made all his appoint- 
ments with the strictest rega,rd to personal qualifications^ m^ht 
well gratify the honorable pride of any man. But devotion to his 
native State, and personal considerations, induced him to decline 
the office. 

Perhaps the most important era in the official life of the Sur- 
veyor-General, was that during which he was connected with the 
Canal Policy of the State. 

Since the eminent success of that great undertaking, at once the 
glory of the State and Nation, many competitors have claimed the 
honor of its first inception. We believe the country i? settled in 
the conviction that the people of the State are most indebted for 
just conceptions of this great project to the brilliant intellect, phil- 
osophical mind and extended observations of Governeur Morris, and 
the penetration, sagacity, and profound reflectiqli, — as exhibited in 
his powerful essays— of Jessee Hawley, and to them has been duly 
awarded the palm. But it was certainly due to the far-looking 
views,the personal influence, and patient working of De Witt Clin- 
ton, and a host of others, that the Canal Policy became that of the 
State. In all great public undertakings there are three classes of 
co-workers, by whom success is achieved — those whose enlightened 
and liberal views suggest, those whose personal influence enforce, 
and those whose experience and labor consummate the work. But 
it is manifest that unless the latter class is directed by a sagacious 
and comprehensive intellect, a great project may be stifled at its 


birth, by the intrigues of a feV resolute aild cunning men oppose(J 
to its. success. This w?« ,theca^e in regard to the Canal Policy', 
inaugurated in 1810. • A poweffiil minority oif the people Were'op- 
posed' to it! whose leaders were wati^hing to find a cailse for its

great caiitiioh in those charged with it^ execution,, to' see that every 
step in its p'rogress should be taken with a view to the 'greatest 
economy, Consistent with the perfect completion ofthe Work.' 

Ho'w well this was d6hd by the Surveyor-General, the history of 
the Canal amply testified. . • , < .. > 

He was directed to take chargeof the preliminary surveys neces- 
sary to ascertain the he^t routes and ttiost economical plans for the 
work. ' , ' 

The very selection oSf the agents to do this, was no slight res- 
ponsibility ; but, fortunately for' the State,' the great surveys car- 
ried on in previous years'j to open' arid 'explore its territory, and 
develop its resources, hM ediicated' a, 'class of 'm'eri eminently fitted

Philadelphia aQ.d Boston alone had Philosophical Societies, when 
one was incorporated in|hi8 $tate, in 1793, under the name of the 
"Society for the Prpt^btipn of i Agriculture, Arts and Manufac- 
tures." Of this. General DeWitt was flu original niember, and, 
on the death of Chancellor Livingston, its first President, in 1813 
he succeeded him in the Chair. 

To this \^dy he communicated vaiious: papers of a highly prac- 
tical nature on Agriculture and' Agricultural Machinery. A plan

climates of North America^ and the progress of -vegetation. The

He was also the author of other philosophical papers, published 
in various philosophical journals, among which weri " Observations 
made on- the functions of the Moon, deduced from observations 
made on the great Eclipse of 1806," and a " Plan for a new form 
of Raingagc," "A Table of Variations of the Magnetic Needle." 
AlsO,"BiBea88ions on the Theory of the Remarkable Meteors, or 
Falling Stars, of November, 1833, &c." 

Edrly in the present century General De Witt purchased a thou- 
sand acres of land, being part of what is, known as the "Location," 
owned by Mr. Abraham Bloo'dgood in the town of Ulysses (now 
Ithaca,) at the, head of .Cayuga ^akie, embracing a large part of the 
present ^ite of village of Ithaca. Upon Visiting his purchase, his 
practical ihind at once perceived it to be well adapted, from its lo- 
cation and ample "waterpdyrer, to become a manufacturing village 
and a naturalentrepbt' for the trade of a large district of country. 

He purchased several adjoining tracts so that his estate, covering 
the valley, nearly reached the summits of the hills on the east and 

He laid out the plat for a small village wKer^, 'JUduibra and Owe- 
go Streets now are, and sold lots on most easy 1^^,; that persons 
of small means might be induced to secure Gwi]^i4a1)te homes.'^ 
He then built upon the Cascadilla Creek,.a 6uj^tom-^iaill sufHcicht 
for the nfecessities of the country around. ■ ''L'* , ' • ,,■''' 


He subsequently introduced at great expense, from the celebrat- 
ed Spanish flock of Chancellor Livingston, the breed of Merino 
sheep. This proved a heavy loss to him, but he never regretted 
it, regarding the benefit the agricultural interests of the country- 
derived from their introduction, ample compensation for his own 

By the completion of the Erie Canal, a highway was opened be- 
tween Ithaca and the Hudson River through the Cayagfi Lake and 
Seneca Biver, furnishing a better market and greatly advancing the 
interests of the County. General De Witt, to meet the increasing 
demand, extended his town plat, and the village rapidly increased ; 
its progress being greatly favored by his moderate prices and liber- 
al credits to settlers. He also gave generously toward public im- 
provements, both in land and money. 

Many of the churches received from him the sites they occcupy, 
and not only the early, but the subsequent prosperity of Ithaca is 
owing, in a great degree, to his liberal policy. 

In 1829 the Chemung Canal was put in course of constijiction, 
and it became manifest that the completion of this work would be 
a serious detriment to the interests of Ithaca and Owego, by divert- 
ing the traffic and travel upon which the capital and enterprise of 
these places so much depended. 

To countervail the anticipated effects of this Canal, the Ithaca and 
Owego Railroad project was revived. In 1828, a charter had been 
procured for this road, but it had laid dormant. It was now deter- 
mined to build the road. The charter provided for a capital of 
only one hundred and fifty thousand dollars, .while it was well un- 
derstood that it would require at least four times that amout to 
complete tde road. The enterprise was popular and there was no 
difficulty in procuring subscriptions for the stock ; the subscribers 
stipulating, that upon the procurement of an Act increasing the 
capital, they should be privileged to take up the additional stock 
pro-rata with their subscriptiohs. 

General De Witt and his son. Richard Varick De Witt, subscrib- 
ed largely for the stock, and the road was commenced and operations 
carried on so vigorously, that before the capital could be increased, 
it became necessary to procure additional funds or suspend the 
work, which would endanger the enterprise. In this critical condis 
tion of affairs. General De Witt and his son Richard rescued the 
Company from their dilemma, by pledging their individual credit 
for the necessary means to carry on the work. This act, with the 
aid of a loan from the State, secured the completion of the road. — 
But the shadows of the dark days of 1836-7 &sgan to gather in the 
financial horizon ; bankruptcy and ruin prostrated States and indi- 
viduals; Pennsylvania postponed the payment of her debt, and 
stopped the progress of her public works. The North Branch 


Canal, intended to connect her great Coal Fields with the Susque- 
hanna River, was abandoned, and operations on the New York and 
Erie Road were discontinued before it had reached the Susquehan- 
na Valley. 

Thus the great highways which were to connect the Ithaca and 
Owego Road with southern New York and Central Pennsylvania 
were closed, and it remained only a connecting link between the 
villages which gave it its name. The stockholders, once so eager 
to secure the additional stock, refused to take it, and the road was 
left mortgaged to the State for the amount loaned it, and addition- 
ally in debt for sums advanced by its friends. The consequences 
were inevitable, the road was sold on the mortgage to the State, 
and ruin came upon those who had carried it through its former 

The venerable Simeon De Witt had passed away before these 
disasters overtook his cherished project, but his estate was ruined, 
and only sufficient to pay bis debts. 
' The advantages of this road, so vital to its prosperity, were se- 
cured to Ithaea, but by the sacrifice 6f all the property and inter- 
ests of its " founder, patron and friend." 

General De Witt died at Ithaca, on the 8d day of December, 
1834, exhibiting during his painful si(^ness, and in bis dying hour, 
those traits of christian character of which his life had been an illus- 
trious exemplification. 


Rev. William Wisnkh, D. D., was born in Warwick, Orange 
County, New York, on the 18th of April, 1782. He was the second 
son of Captain Asa Wisner. 

His father was a Revolutionary officer. He was first a lieut- 
enant, then acted as adjutant, and afterwards was convmissioned a 
captain, which commission bore the signature of Washington him- 
self. At the close of the war, he settled on a farm in Orange Coun- 
ty, where his children were born. In 1799, he exchanged this farm 
for a much lai^er landed estate on the banks oftlie Chemung River, 
at Newtown, Tioga Co., now Elmira, Chemung County, State of 
New York. 

He arrived at his new home, with his family, on the first day (^ 
January, 1800. This at that time was a fronti^ settlement with 
but few inhabitants, surrounded with forests, with only here and 
there a clearing. 


It was here in this new country, amid the hfti'dships and exeite- 
ments of frontier life, that the subject of this sketch found it neces- 
sary to choose a profession forlifef. ■ 

The opportunities for mind culture which he had previously en- 
joyed, had been diligently improved. He had acquired, for those 
times, a good common school' education, and was somewhat ad- 
vanced in classical and mathematical! studies'. After mature delib- 
-'eration, he selected the legal, profession, and, in 1803, enfef^ as a 
student the office of Samuel Haight, Esq., a lawyer of larg% prac- 
tice and' considerable eminence in that part of the State. 

His previous classical aild literary acquirements, secured him a 
credit of three years, leaving him four years of study -before be 
could be admitted to practice in the Supreme Court. He remained 
with Mr. Haight but one year,'aiid then transferred his clerkship to 
the office • of Hon. Vincent Matthews,' who at that time, and for 
more than half a century aflerwai^ds>, stood at the head of the bar 
in Western' New. York. After study ing^witb Mm for a yeac, in the 
Spririg;of;l§05,;heiWas admitted to pKaetiCeihthe Court of Com- 
mon Pleas, and immediately enliet'dd into partnership with his legal 
preceptor.^ 'Thus/ at the aigeof/- 23 years," he'<cdmmenced the prac- 
tice of the law, which' he pursued with much enthusiasm and suc^ 
cess for about eight, years. In August, 1808, he was admitted to 
practice in the Supreme Court of the State, his license beii^ signed 
by the venerated James Kent, then Chief Justice of that Court. 
His strong, clear, logical mind, his keen sense of the ridiculous, his 
brilliant wit, and biting sarcasm, in connection with the deep sym- 
pathies of his nature, and the noble attributes of his heart, eminent- 
ly fitted him for su^ess at . the Bar, and it is not suifrising that 
during the few years of his practice, he attained an eminence, as a 
lawyer and an advocate, which few attain in a life-time. 

, In 1806, he inade.a public professipu of his faith in Christ by 
uriitliig with the Presbyterian Cliurbh, and became an active and 
efficient worjterin the vineya,rd of his Master. Such was his desire 
to do good, that he Was led to consider whether it Was not his duty 
to change his profession, and enter the Ministry. The great ques- 
tion' with him Was, whether he could not be vastly more useful in 
that profession than as a lawyer. He had already secji^eil a Iftrge 
and growing practice, iftnd his pi»ofessional prospects, both as to 'ifaine 
and fortune, were exceedingly flattering. ' ' ' 

AH these must be relinquished if he entered the Ministi*y," and 
tyet.with the cOnsequ^enoes fully' before himyhe detarniined to make 
thcchange. While staged in oltising up his legdl business, he 
J)ursued a .brief, theologieal course, under the care of the Association 
of Ontario. 


In the Autumn of 1811, he was licensed to prbach, and soon af^ 
ter was settled as a stated suipply" at iTi'dg* Point, (noW Athens,) 
Pettn. Hete he gathered'a sinall <shu#ch, and, in 1812, was ordained 
as an evangelist. ' ' '

and committed many other similar scandAlous acts. Thejr even 
went so far as to pull down the school house where he preached, and 
thus compelled him to cause a barn to be fitted up on his own 
premises in which to hold his meetings. 

These indignities he bore with the utmost meekness, literally 
obeying the injunction, "lore your enemies, bless them that curse 
you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which de- 
spitefuUy use you and persecute you." ' 

fiis kindness and faithfulness were so uniform and unremitting, 
that in a short time his bitterest enemies became his warmest 
friends. His influence over the people constantly increased, and 
was exerted to the utmost for the moral and religious improvement 
of the, place. He set himself against vice in every form, with a 
boldness and CQnsisten<;y which ehallenged the admiration of all. — 
He ever ii^anifested a tender conscientiousness and an uns^fish re- 
gard for the welfare of .others, which to a la,rge extent disarmed opr 
position, and prepared thoise to wjiom he ministered, to receive his 
instructions and exhortations as from one sent of God. The de- 
lightful transforming results of his self-denying labors upon the in- 
habitants of the place and the surroundiiig country, were wonder- 
ful indeed. We hazard nothing in saying, that this whole region of 
country is more indebted to him for its present moral and reljgioius 
elevation, than ^ any other man. His success as a pastor was such, 
that his Chucphi which, in 1816, consisted of bi^t thirteen members, 
in 1830, .besides having fprnished a nucleus for several other religi- 
ous prgapizatioja^, jtiad inqreased to a membership of eight hun- 
dred, and there were in h|8 congr^ation but eighteen or twenty 
adults >irho,4id not belong to it. 

About this time. Dr. Wisner, hoping to ihcrease his usefulness, 
accepted a call to the Brick Church, in Bocihester, New York, where, 
for ifeur years, he ministered with great acceptance and success; — 
after which, owing to &iling health, he accepted a call to the First 
Presbyterian Church of St. Louis, Missouri, with the hope that he 
might be benefited and restored by the change of climate. In this 
he was disapipointed, and after remaining with that people for two 
years, he found himself so enfeebled and debilitated, as to make it 
necessary to resign his oharge and return North. Se supposed 
that his pastoral work was finished, and very naturally selected 
Ithaca as the place in which to spend his Jia«t ,c^^b. 

Here, among his old friends and former people, with some 
months of entire rest from labor and responsibility, lie was so far 
restored, as to feel that he might with safety return to the duties of 
his wofession. Yielding to U»e earnest solicitations of his former 
flock, he was re-installed as their pastor. 


In this capacity he continued to serve them until declining health, 
and the infirmities of age, made it necessary for him to retire from 
the active duties of the ministry. 

Dr. Wisner still lives, and is enjoying a delightful old age. It 
is the earnest desire of his numerous friends that many years still 
may be added to so useful a life. 


Hon. Ezra Cobhell was born Jan. 11, 1807, at Westchester 
Landing, ih Westchester Co., State of New York. His father was 
poor and inured to hard labor, but a man of some culture, and for 
many winters taught district schools. He Was a potter by trade, and 
lived to the Age of ninety-one years, having reared a family of eleven 
children, of whom Ezra was the eldest. The advantages Ezra en- 
joyed for an early education, were confined to those winter schools 
taught by his father; nor were those always open to him, except by 

In 1819, his father removed to De Ruyter, Madison Co., N. Y. 
Here he established a small pottery, and with the assistance of 
Ezra and a younger brother, conducted a farm. 

Here his father also taught school during the winter, and i!zra 
and his younger brother, wishing to attend it, obtained their father's 
consent, on condition that theyishould clear four acres cf heavily 
timbered land, by planting time in the Spring. This task was ac- 
complished by the 10th of May following. 

About this time the mechanical talent of joung Cornell was first 
developed. His father employed a man to build a small pottery 
shop. Ezra worked with him, and so far became master of the 
trade, that the next year he cut from the woods with his own hands, 
planned and built, a neat two story house for his father. In 1826, 
being, then nineteen years old, he commenced life for himself, and 
worked two years as a carpenter and joiner, in Syracuse and Homer, 
in this State. In 1839 he came to Ithaca, and engaged with Otis 
Eddy to work one year in the machine shop attached to his cotton 
factory, at eight dollars per month and board. After working six 
months, Mr. Eddy informed him that he thought he was not get- 
ting wages enough, and that for the balance of the year he should 
pay him twelve dollars. At the end of the year, although a legal 
day's work was then twelve hours, he had credit for six months at 
eight dollars, and seven months at twelve dollars ; having gained 
one month by overwork. 


In 1630, he was pu^ in clut|-§e of the flquring ntill of J. S. Be^be 
at.fall , C|;^«^,,at,an i^nnual,. salary of four hi,ii^dred dollars, where 
he remained for ten years. In 1840, Mr. Be^fbe having failed, he 
pjirchased^dieirigjit for, apatfPlt plow, for.the.^tates of M^ine and 
Georgia, and trayeled in those States to s^lj it. While thus engaged, 
he became'acquainted with Francis O. J. ^mith, editor of the Maine 
Farmer,' and a member of Congress. This acquaintance with Mr. 
Smith,' led'io his first connection with the Ik[agnetic Telegraph, 
though which he subsequently' acquired his large fortune. 

Mr. Smith owned one-fourth of Prof. Morse's patent, and Con- 
gress had appropriatied thirty-thousand dollars to build an experi- 
mental line between Washington and Baltimore. Prof. Morse's 
plan then was to encase the wires in a lead pipe, and bury it two 
feet in the ground. Mr. Smith had taken the contract to lay this 
pipe, at the rate of one hundred dollars per mile, but after a care- 
ful estimate of the cost he was satisfied that he would lose money 
by the contract. Mr. Cornell extricated him from his difficulties, 
by inventing a machine something like a plow, with, a drum near 
the middle of the beam, around which the pipe was coiled, by means 
of which, with the aid of a strong teatn, the trench could be cut, the 
pipe laid and covered, as the plow passed along at the speed of or- 
djnapy plq\)ring. - ,?!.., i - - , : 

' The pipe-layer was taken to Baltimore, arid With the aid'df a six 
mule team, under the direction of Mr. Cornell, ten miles 6fthe pipe 
was' suciSessfuliy' laid at a cfok' of ten dollSi^s" per mile, Ins'tead of 
one hundred. But it was soon disco veredthat the inSulatibh was 
so imperfect that it would hot V6t(k. '"After* s|iendirie'th'e winter of 
1843^aM''44''iti Vain' attempts ^6 'se'cure perfect 'irishlal^qij,' the pro- 
ject of an underground telegraph was abahdoiied," and' .me" present 
method' of SlfirigTrig on poleis adopted. MK Cotnejl* was put in 
charge of 'the ^ork, and pushed it with stich Tigoi*, that he got the 
line in operatlph in May 1S44, in time to telSjri-aph thd nomination 
of James K. I^dk.- ' ■ ' '^ - ° f 

In 1845, a company oegaifti/ed and a.. telegraph line built 
between New York and .Baltimore,, and Mr. Cornell superintended 
the construdiion of the iieotion between. th6 i former city and Phila- 
delphia,. He received $1,000 a year forhis serviocB, and demon- 
strajicd his faith in the iinanioial success ©f the scheme by subsmb- 
ing for $500 of the stock, which he paid out of his salary. 

Before the close of that year a company was organized to build 
the New York and Buffalo line, and Mr. Cornell took Uie contract to 
bup that part of it between New York and Albany. On this con- 
ti'^ct he cleared six thousand dollars. In 1847, he organized the 


.Company, and buUJilhe line between Troy and; J^lyutreal, by which 
^e made thirty tjtic^u^^d dollars, and again. m^ifested ;his faith in 
telegraphs, by invjpstJlig it in the Erie and 'Miehigan ^ipe, ; running 
from Buffalo to Miltiraukee. ■ . : .«!» .• . , ''.■■,. 

For seyen long j^es^ri^Mr. Cornell was deprived of the.benefits of 
this investment, owing to • conflicting claims, between the .grantees 
of Morse," Gale &,y ail,. w;ho owned three-fourths of the patent, and 
the grantees of.. Smith,- who owned the remaining one-foiirthi grow- 
ing out of a "inisimderstanding as to the division of this ; Western 
territory. ■ But ., largely;^ through the efforts of Mr.' Cornell,' these 
rival interests were united,'and the competing lines consolidated in 
1855, under the name'of >;the;Western Union Line, in which he is 
one of the largest shareholders.' 

Mr. Cornell has always taken a lively interest in ) Agriculture, 
and has freely devoted his time and money for its advan6ement. — 
In 1862 he was elected President of the State Agricultural Society, 
and by it selected as a delegate to the Royal Agricultural Exhibi- 
tion in London, where he made himself thoroughly conversant with 
the farming methods of England. 

In 1861 he was elected to the Assembly by the Union party, and , 
in 1862 re-elected. In the fall of 1863 he was elected to the State 
Senate, and in 1865 re-elected to the same office. 

In 1862 he appropriated one hundred thousand dollars to estab- 
lish a free ,Lib|figiFy at Ithaca,' and subsequently he "gave half a mil- 
lion of dollars,' and ^twd hundred acres of land^ to establish a Uni- 
versity at the] same place, ; on condition that the ' State, would give 
the Institution the' proceeds of the Land Grant,'made by the' Gen- 
eral Government^to this State, for the promotion of , Education.-— 
This grant consisted of 990,000 ,' acres. ^ This laiid scrip is now 
worth in the market only sixty, cent^ per acre, and 1 if -sold now, 
would only produce $594,000,' but Mr. Cornell is buying in and lo- 
cating this scrip, and, hopes by thus increasing its' value,' to secure 
for this institution the princely endowment of throe millions of dol- 
lars. He has also purchased for the University, at ^ cost of ten 
thousand dollars, the Jewett Paleontological Cabinet, *^of Albany, 
the most complete of its kind in this country. 

Mr. Cornell is a man of strong practical common sense, and a 
high degree of inventive and mechanical ingenuity. He is enthu- 
siastic and persevering in carrying but his jplans, never; anticipating, 
and consequently seldom exjperieiicing defeatg^. A; man of great 
firmness, sometimes approaching obstinacy, at lieast;in the deilsnce 
of opinions which he thoroughly believes to be right,and he never 


j__ . _ ^ 

holds any others. He is a man of noble iiistincts and generous impul- 
ses, but not given to the estimate of men or things, at more than their 
plain actual value. He has a vigorous, clear and comprehensive 
intellect, combined with simple, unostentatious habits and manners. 
Wisely acting as his own executor and almoner, he is using his 
large fortune, in a manner that will make his name a household 
Word for generations to come.

the whites. It is the principal rice-growing State. Whites, who have re- 
sided in the State two years and district six months, and have a freehold 
of fifty acres of land, or have paid a State tax, are entitled to vote. De- 
cember 17, 1860, a Convention assembled in Columbia, adjourned to 
Charleston, and on the 24th unanimously adopted an ordinance of seces- 
sion, which was followed the next day by a Declaration of Causes claimed 
to be sufficient to justify the act. • An election for delegates to a State Con- 
vention was held September 4, 1865. The Convention assembled Sep- 
tember 13, and adjourned on the 28th. It repealed the ordinance of seces- 
sion, abolished slavery, equalized the representation of the Senate and 
taxation throughout the State, giving the election of Governor and Presi- 
dential electors to the people, ordered the Legislature by moa 
voce, endorsed the Administration unanimously, and directed a commis-

nessee, which had declared against separation by a vote of 33,938 to 14,780, 
they, in a Convention held at Greenville, June 18-31, repudiated it. An- 
drew Johnson, Provisional Governor of the State, called a State Conven- 
tion to be held in Nashville the second Monday in January. Delegates 
were elected, the Convention met, declared slavery forever abolished, pro- 
hibited compensation to owners of slaves, and abrogated the secession or- 
dinances. These amendments of the Constitution were submitted to the 
people 23d of February, 1865, with the following result: For ratification, 
32,197 ; rejection, 63. The United States Constitutional Amendment was 
ratified April 5, 1865.

part of Mexico until 1836, when she revolted from that Republic and in- 
stituted a separate Government, under which she existed until admitted 
into the Union by a joint resolution approved March Ist, 1845, imposing 
certain conditions, which were accepted, and a Constitution formed July 
4 of the same year, and another joint resolution adopted by Congress, 
consummating the annexation, was approved December 29, 1845. Area 
237,504 square miles, or 152,003,500 acres. Population in 1860, 604,215, of

sion of the State in 1863, the seat of Government was removed to Alexan- 
dria. A State Constitutional Convention, March 10, 1864, adopted a sec- 
tion abolishing slavery. 

WJSST VJSIGJJVIjI.—Oil the passage of the ordinance of se- 
cession by the Virginia Convention, a Convention of the western and other 
loyal counties of the State was held at Wheeling, which assembled May 
11, 1861, and on the 17th unanimously deposed the then State officers and 
organized a Provisional Government. On the 26th of November, 1861, a 
Convention representing the western counties assembled in Wheeling and 
framed a Constitution for West Virginia, which was submitted to the 
people on the 3d of May, 1862, and adopted by them by»a nearly unani- 
mous vote. The division of the State was sanctioned by the Legislature 
May 18, 1862, and ratified by Congress by an act approved December 31, 
1862, conditioned on the adoption of an amendment to the Constitution 
providing for the gradual abolition of slavery, which was done on the 24th 
of March, 1863, by a vote of the qualified electors of the proposed State, 
28,318 votingin favor of the amendment, and 573 against it.. In pursu- 
ance of the act of Congress, the President issued a Proclamation^ April

igan December 24, 1834, and was organized into a Territory April 30, 
1836. Iowa was set off from it June 12, 1838, and acts were passed at 
various times setting its boundaries. March 3, 1847, an act for its admis- 
sion into the Union was passed, to take effect on the issuing of a Procla- 


mation by the PreBident, and by act of May 29, 1849, it was admitted into 
the Union. Area 53,924 square miles, or- 34,611,360 acres. Population in 
1860, 775,881. It is an agricultural State, chiefly engaged in grain raising 
and wool growing. Both white and colored citizens of the United States, 
or white foreigners who have declared their intention to become citizens, 
are entitled to Vote. Colored citizens were admitted to the franchise, by a 
decision of the Supreme Court, rendered the 37th day of Match, 1866, 
holding that, whfereas an election was held in 1849, under the provisions 
of chapter 187, of that year, at which election 5,365 votes were cast in 
favor of the extension of the right of suffrage to colored men, and 4,075 
against such extension, therefore, the section of said law conferring such 
right had been constitutionally adopted and is the law of the land. 



ii.Xiii.3£^A, our new territory, recently purchased of Russia, compre- 
hends all the north-west coast on the Pacific, and the adjacent islands north 
of the parallel of 50 degrees 40 minutes north, and the portion of the main- 
land west of the meridian (about 140° west) of Mount St Elias. The area 
is computed at 481,376 square miles. The climate, although wanner than 
in the same latittide on the eastern coast, is too rigorous to admit of suc- 
cessful agricultural operations, and the chief value of the county and ad- 
j acent seas is derived from their fisheries and hunting grounds. The south- 
ern and central portions are mountainous; the northern portion along the 
Arctic ocean is quite flat, nowhere rising more than fifteen or twenty feet 
above the sea. The population is estimated at about 80,000, mostly Esqui-

ter of 1868, out of the western half of New Mexico, the boundary between 
the two Territories being the 109th meridian (32d west from Washington,) 
and includes the greater portions of the valleys of Colorado and Gila, 
■'^'"ch two rivers drain its entire surface, with parts of Utah, New Mexico 
and Nevada, and yet convey, it is reported, a less volume of water to the 
sea than the Hudson at Albany. The fertile Messilla Valley was left with 
New Mexico. The Territory forms a block nearly square, and contains 
136,141 square miles, or 80,780,340 acres. Its white population is probably 
considerably less than 10,000. For agricultural purposes it is probably 
the most worthless on the Continent, owing to the absence of rains, but it 
IS reputed to abound in silver mines.

21, 1864, the people of the Territory were authorized to frame a State Con- 
stitution and organize a State GoTemment, and a Convention accordingly 
met in 1865, and on the 13th of August adopted a Constitution, which was 
submitted to and adopted by the people September 5, and State officers 
elected November 14. A bin to admit the Territory as a State passed 
Congress, but was vetoed May 35, 1866. It is said to be a superior graz- 
ing and cattle producing region, with a healthy climate and rich soiL 
An extensive coal bed, and also gold, iron and other minerals abound.

session, in the winter of 1863. Its name means 'Bead of the Mountains,' 
and it embraces the whole breadth of the Rocky Mountain region, and has 
within its bounds the head waters of nearly all the great rivers that flow 
down its either slope, but the greater portion lies east of the mountains. 
Its southern boundaiy is the 41st, its northern the 46th parallel of latitude. 
It extends from the 104th meridian on the east to the 110th on the west. 
Area 336,378 square miles, or 308,870,730 acres. For agricultural purposes 
it is comparatively worthless, but abounds in gold and other valuable

ington with the 45" N. L. ; thence due west on said 45th degree to a point 
formed by its intersection with the 34th degree W. from Washington ; 
thence due south along said 34th degree of longitude to its intersection 
with the 44th degree and 30 minutes of N. L. ; thence due west along said 
44th degree and 30 minutes of N. L. to a point formed by its intersection 
with the crest of the Rocky Mountains; thence following the crest of the 
Rocky Mountains northward till its intersection with the Bitter Root

boundary line of the British possessions; thence eastward along said 
boundary to the 37th degree of longitude W. from Washington^ thence 
southward along said 37th degree to the place of beginning. This makes 
it the northermost Territory next the States east of the Missouri Valley. It 
is a good mining and agricultural region. The total population is put 
down at 15,833. Large accessions have been made since the census was

same must write or imprint thereupon in

(the year, month, and day) on which the 
same is attached or used. Each stamp 
should be separately cancelled. When 
stamps are printed upon checks, &c., so 
that in filling up the instrument, the face o& 
the stamp is and must necessarily be writ- 
ten across, no other cancellation will be re-

The Srst act imposing a stamp tax upon 
certain. specified instruments took effect, so 
far as said tax is concerned^ October 1, 1863. 
The Impression which seems to prevail to 
some extent, that no stamps are required 
npon any instruments, issued In the States 
lately in ihsurteotion, prior to the surren- 
derj or prior tO'tbe establishment of collec- 
tion district»ihar«,lB erroneoos. 

Instruments lewed in those States since 
October 1, 186a,:i«re subject to the same tax- 
es as similar ones issued at the same time 
in the other States. 

No stamp lsn«8esaary npon an Instrument 
executed prior ttoOntoberl, 1862, to make 

It admissible in evidence, or to entitle it to

an amount of Dsoney to be paid on demand 
or at a time desitsaated, are subj ftct to stamp 
duty OS "promlsswry Botes." 

When two or more persons join in the ex- 
ecution of an imfMBment, the stamp to which 
the instrument is liable noder the law, may 
be affixed and cawrelled by either of them ; 
and "when more CSan one signature Is affix- 
ed to the same paper, one or more stamps 
may be alHxea thereto, representing the 
whole amount of tie stamp required for 
such signatBn«." 

No stamp is required on any warrant of 
attorney accmopanying a bond or note, 
when such bond ornote has- affixed thereto' 
the stamp or stamps denoting the duty re-- 
quired ; and, whenever any Bend or note is 
secured by mortgage, but one<Btamp duty is- 
required on such papers— sueli stamp doty 
being the highest rate requiredifor such in-

edgement of the Instrument which Is not 

Particular attention Is called to the 
change in section 164, by striStog out the 
words "or used ;" the exemptJSsi thereun- 
der is thus restricted to docmnents, Ac, 
issued by the officers therein named; Also, 
to the changes in sections 1S3' abd 168, by 
inserting the words "and cascsSed in the 
manner required by law." 

The acceptor or acceptors of any bill of 
exchange, or order for the payment of any 
sum of money, drawn or pnrpcnrSng to be 
drawn in any foreign connti7, but' payable 
in the United States; must, beforeilaymg or 
accepting the same, place thereupon a 
stamp indicating the duty. 

It is only npon conveyances of re»% sold 
that conveyance stiimps are necessm. A 
deed of real estate made without vmable 
consideration need not be stamped as- a 
conveyance ; but if it contains covenants, 
such, for instance, as a covenant to warront 
and defend the title, It should be stamped 
as an agreement or contract. 

When a deed purporting to be a convey- 
ance of reiUty sold; and stamped accordingt- 
ly, Is inoperative, a deed of confirmation,, 
made simply to cure the defect, requires uo> 
stamp. In sueh case, the second deed 
should contain a recital of the facts, and 
should' show the reasons for Its execution. 

Partition deeds between tenants in com- 
mon, neednotbe-stoinped as conveyances, 
Inasmuch as there is no sale of realty, but 
merely a marking out, or a defining, of the 
boundaries of the part belonging to each; 
but wheremoney or other valuable consid- 
eration is paid by ohe co-tenant to another 
for equality of partition, there is a sale to 
the extent of such consideration, and the 
conveyance, by the party receiving it, 
should be stamped accordingly.

A conveyance of realty sold, subject to a 
mortgage, should be stamped abcording to 
the constderatioil, or the valile of the prop- 
erty unerummbereil. T'he consideration in 
such case is to be found by adding the 
amount paid for the equity of redemption 
to the mortgage debt. T&e fact that one 
part of the consideration is paid to the 
mortgagor and the other part tp the mort- 
gagee does not change' the lUbility of the 

The stamp tax upon a mortgage is based 
upon the amount Itis given to secure. The 
fact that the value of the property mortgag- 
ed is less than that Smoum, and that conse- 
quently the seeurlty is oisly partial, does 
not change the liability of the instrument. 
When, therefore, a second mortgage is giv- 
en to secure the payment of a sum of mon- 
ey partially seemed by a prior mortgage u"p- 
on other property; or when two mortgages 
upon separate property are given at the 
same time to secure the payment of the 
same sum, each should be stamped as 
though it were the only one. 

A mortgage given to secure a surety from 
loss, or given for any purpose whatever, 
other than as security for the payment of a 
definite and certain sum of monery,is taxa- 
able only as an agreement or contract. 

The stamp duty upon a letfse, agreement, 
memorandnra, orcoatractfor the nire, use, 
orrent of any land, tenement, or portion 
thereof, is based upon tho annual rent or 
rental value of the property leased, and the 
duty is the same whether the lease be for 
one year, for a term of years, or for the 
fractional part of a year only. 

Upon every assignment or transfer of a 
mortgage, a stamp tax is required equalto 
that imposed upon a mortgage for the 
amount remaining nnpaid ; this tax is re- 
quired upon every such transfer in writing, 
whether there is a scUe of the mortgage or 
not ; but no stamp is necessary upon the 
endorsement of a negotiable instrument, 
even though the legal effect of such indorse- 
ment is to transfer a mortgage by which 
the instrument is secured. 

An assignment of a lease within the mean- 
ing and intent of Schedule B, is an assign- 
ment of the Uase?iold, or of some portion 
thereof, by the lessee, or by some person 
claiming by, from, or under him ; such an 
assignment as subrogates the assignee to 
the rights, or some portion of the rights, of 
the lessee, or of the person standing in his 
place. A transfer by the lessor of his part 
of a lease, neither giving nor purporting 
to give a claim to the leasehold, or to any 
part thereof, but simply a right to the rents, 
&c., is subject to stamp tax as a contract 
or agreement only. 

The stamp tax upon a fire insurance 
policy is based upon the premium. 

Deposit notes taken by a mutual fire in- 
surance company, not as payment of pre- 
mium nor as evidence of indebtedness 
therefor, but to be used simply as a basis 
upon which to make rateable assessments to 
meet the losses incurred by the company.

When a policy 6t insurance properly 
st&mped has been issued and lost, no stamp 
is necessary upon another issued by the 
same company to the same party, covering 
the same property, time, &c., and designed 
siinply to supply the loss. The second 
policy should recite the loss of the first. 

An instrument which operates as the re- 
newal of a policy of insurance, is subject to 
the same stamp tax as the policy. 

When a_policy of insurance is issued for 
a certain time, whether it be for one year 
only or for a term of years, a receipt for 
premium, or any other instrument which 
has the 'legal effect to continue the contract 
and extend its operation beyond that tim^Me^ 
quires the same amount of revenue stamps 
as the policy itself; but such a receipt aa 
is usually given for the payment of the 
monthly, quarterly, or annual premium, is 
not a renewal within the meaning of the 
Statute. The payment simply preventf"""- 

policy from expiringj by reason of non^pr- 
formance of its conditions ; a receipt grvta 
for such a payment requires a two-cent 
Stamp, if the amount received exceeds 
twenty dollars, and a two,-cent stamp only. 
When, however, the time 'of payment has 
passed, and a tender of the premium is not 
Sufficient to bind the company, but a n^'w 
Jolicy or a new contract in some form, with 
the mutuality essential tO\.every contract, 
becomes necessary between the insurer and 
the insured, the same amount of stamps 
should be used as that required upon the 
original policy. 

A permit issued by a life insurance com- 
pany changing the terms of a policy as to 
travel, residence, occupation, &c., should 
be stamped as a contract or agreement'. 

A bill single or a bill obligatory, i. e., an 
instrument in the form of a promissory 
note, under seaZj is subject to stamp duty 
as written or printed evidence of an amount 
of money to be paid on demand or at a 
time designated, at the rate of five cents 
for each one hundred dollars or fractional 
part thereof. 

A waiver of protest, or of demand and 
notice, written upon negotiable paper and 
signed by the indorser, is an agreement, 
and requires a five-cent stamp. 

A stamp duty of twenty-five cents is im- 
posed upon the "protest of every note, bill 
of exchange, check or draft," and upon 
every marine protest. If several notes, 
bills of exchange, drafts, &c., are protest- 
ed at the same time and all attached to one 
and the same certificate, stamps should be 
affixed to the amount of twenty-five cents 
for each note, bill, draft, &o., thus protest- 

When, as is generally the case, the cap- 
tion to a deposition contains other certifi- 
cates in addition to the jurat to the affida- 
vit of the deponent, such as a certificate 
that the parties were or were not notified, 
that they did or did not appear, ttiat they 
did or did not object, &c,, it is subject to 
a stamp duty of five cents. 

When an attested copy of a writ or other 



firocesa Is nsedbya sheriff or other person 
n making personal service, or in attaching 
property, a five-cent stamp should be affix- 
ed to the certificate of attestation. 

A marriage certificate issned by the offi- 
ciating clergyman or magistrate, to be re- 
turned to any officer of a State, county, city, 
town, or other municipal corporation, to 
constitute part of a public record, requires 
no stamp ; but if ft la to be retained by 
the parties, a five-cent stamp should be af- 

The stamp tax upon a bill of sale, by 
which any ship or vessel, or any part there- 
of, is conveyed to or vested in any other 
person or persons, is at the same rate as 
that imposed upontconveyances of realty 
sold; a bill or sale ofany other personal 
property should be stamped as a contract 

im assignment of real or personal prop- 
erty, orofboth, for the benefit of creditors, 
should be stamped as an agreement or con- 

vVWten or printed assignments of agree- 
nitetil; bonds, notes not negotiable, and 
of all other Instruments the assignments 
of which are not particularly specified in 
the foregoing schedule, shoiud be stamped 
as agreements. 

No stamp ia necessary upon the registry 
of a judgment, even though the registry is 
such in Its legal effect as to create a lien 
which operates as a mortgage upon the 
property of the judgment debtor. 

When a "power of attorney or proxy for 
voting at any election for officers of any 
incorporated company or society, except 
religions, charitable, or literary societies, 
or public cemeteries," is signed by sever- 
M al stockholders, owning separate and dis- 
tinct shares, it Is, in its legal efiisct, the 
separate instrument of each, and requires 
stamps to the amount of ten cents for each 
and every signature ; one or more stamps 
may be used r^preseuting the whole amount

A stamp tax is imposed upon every 
"manifest for cnatom-houae entry or clear- 
ance of the cargo of any ship, vessel, or 
steamer for a foreign port." The amount 
of this tax in each case depends upon the 
registered tonnage of the vessel. 

If a vesael clears in ballast and baa no 
cargo whatever, no stamp ia neceaaary; 
but if she haa any, however small the amount 
—a etamp ahoma be need. 

A bond to convey real eatate requires 
stampa to the amount of twenty-five centa. 

The stamp duty upon the probate of a 
will, or upon lettera of administration, is 
based upon the sworn or declared value of 
all the estate and effects, real, personal, 
and mixed, nndiminished by the debts of 
the estate for or in respect of which such 
probate or letters are applied for. 

When the property belonging to the es- 
tate of a person deceased, lies under dif- 
ferent jurisdictions and it becomes neces- 
sary to take OQt letters in two or more 
places, the letters should be stamped ac- 
cording to the value of all the property, real, 
personal, and mixed, for or in respect of 
which the particular letters In each case 
are issued. 

Letters ie ionit mm shonld be stamped 
according to the amount of property re- 
maining to be administered upon therenn- 
der, regardless of the stamps upon the orig- 
inal letters. 

A Taerecopy of an instmment is not sub- 
ject to stamp duty nnless it is a certified 
one, in which case a five-cent stamp shonld 
be affixed to the certificate of the person 
attesting it : bnt when an Instrument is 
execnted and issued in duplicate, triplicate, 
&c., as in the case of a lease of two or more 
parts, each part has the same legal effect as 
the other, and each should be stamped as 
an original.

Infallible Rules for Detecting Counterfeit or 
Spurious Bank Notes. 

Bulk Ist.— Examine the ehading of the 
letters is title of Bank called i.atbbwobe, 
which in gennine notes presents an even, 
straight, light and silky appearance, gen- 
erally so fine and smooth as to appear to be 
all in one solid, pale body. In the counter- 
feit the lines are coarse and irregalar, and 
in many of the longer lines breaks will be 
perceived, thus presenting a very inferior 
finish in comparison to genuine work. 

2d.— Observe the dies, circles and ovals 
in the gennine ; they are composed of a 
network of lines, which, by crossing each 
other at certain angles, produce an endless 
variety of figures ; sse the onb cbnt stamp 
J-TTACHBS. The fine line alone is the 
unit which enables you to detect spurious 
work. In the counterfeit, the bepbbsentbd 
white lines are coarse, irregular, and cross 
each other in a confused, irregular manner, 
thus producing blurred and imperfect 

3d,— Bzamine the form and features of 
all human figures on the notie. In the gen- 
uine, the texture of the skin is represented 
by fine dots and lines intermixed. In the 
eyes, the pupil is distinctly visible, and the 
white clearly seen ; the noB6, mouth and 
chin, well formed, natural-and expressive ; 
the lips are slightly pouting, and the chin 
well thrown out ; and the delicate shading 
of the neck perfectly harmonizes with the 
rest of the figure. Observe the fingers and 
toes ; they should be clearly and accurately 
defined. The hair of the head should show 
the fine strands and present a natural ap- 
pearance. The folds of the drapery of hu- 
man figures should lay natural and present 
a fine, finished appearance. In the counter- 
felt the female figure does not bear the 
natural prominence In outlines; observe, 
the eyes and shading surrounding does not 
present the lifelike appearance it should. 
The fingers and toes are not properly and 
proportionately defined ; the hair does not 
bear that soft and finished appearance as in 
the gennine. 

4th,— Examine the imprint or engraver's 
names in the evenness and shape of the 

fine letters. Ctmnterfeits never bear the 
imprint perfect. This rule should be strict- 
ly observed, as it is infiilllble in detecting 

6th.— In the genuine note the landscapes 
are well finished : trees and shrubs are 
neatly drawn ; the limbs well proportioned, 
and the foliage presenting a fine natural 
appearance ; clear sky is formed of fine 
parallel lines, and when clouds or h^vy 
skies appear, they cross each other, and 
bear a soft, smooth and natural appear- 
ance. The perspective, showing a view of 
the surrounding country, is always clear 
and distinct. The small figures in the 
background are always plainly seen, and 
their oatlines and general character re- 
cognized. Ships are well defined and the 
canvass has -a clear texture ; railroad cars 
are very accurately delineated ; in examin- 
ing a train observe carefully the car most 
distant. In the counterfeit the landscape 
is usually poorly executed ; the leaves of 
trees poony and nnnatnrally defined.— 
The hues representing still water are 
scratchy rather than parallel, the sky is 
represented generally in like manner, and 
where rolling clouds are to be seen, the 
unnatural effect is obvious. Domestic 
animals are generally poorly executed, 
particularly the head and limbs ; the eyes 
are seldom clearly defined. Ships are 
poorly drawn, the texture of the canvass 
coarse and inferior in style of workman- 
ship, thus giving an artificial appearance. 
Bauroad cars are also poorly executed ; the 
car farthest fi-om the eye Is usually the 
most imperfect. The perspective is always 
imperfect, the figures in the background 
can seldom be recognized. 

6th.— Bills altered ttom a smtller to a 
higher denomination, can readily be de- 
tected by a close observer, in consequence 
of the striking difference between the parts 
which have been extracted and the rest of 
the note. This difference is readily per- 
ceived in the lack of color, body and finish 
of the dye ; we have seen bills where the 
surrounding shading In altered dies was 



too dark, but from the back or flnieb of the 
white lineeyou have a sure test. Again 
observe particularly the words " Five " or 
^' Ten Dollars ^' as the case may be, denote 
ing the denomination of the note; the 
parallel outlines and shading (if any) are 
coarse and imperfect. Alterations are fi:e- 
quently made by pasting a greater denomi- 
nation over a smaller, bat by holding the 
bill up to the light, the flraud will be per- 
ceivecl. Another method resorted to is to 
cut out the figures in the dies as well as 
the words one dollar, or the words two or 
three as the case may be, and with a sharp 
eraser, scrape down the ends and also the 
edges of the pieces to be inserted ; when 
the pieces thus jirepared are affixed they 
are hardly perceivable; but by passing 
the note through the hand, so as to feel 
the die both with the finger and thumb 
at the same time, the f^aud will be de- 
.tected by the stiffhess of the outer 
edges, " occasioned by the gum or method 
adopted^' in affixing the parts. The letter 
S should always be examined, as in many 
alterations it is pasted or stamped at the 
end of the word " dollar ;" and even when 
stamped there, the carrying ont of the out- 
lines for its shading will readily show the 
fraud. Bills of broken banks are frequent- 
ly altered by extracting the name of bank, 
state and town ; they may readily be de- 

tected by observing first the state, second 
the title or name of the bank, third the 
town or location. 


CouNTBBPBiTB.— The paper on which they 
are printed is generally of a very inferior 
quality, with less body, finish and tough- 
ness than bank note paper has. The ink 
generally lacks the rich luster of the gen- 
uine ; the red letters and figures are gen- 
erally imperfect, and the ink does not pre- 
sent the Vermillion hue as it should. The 
printing is generally inferior, usually ex- 
hibiting specks of white in the most promi- 
nent letters. The date and filling up, and 
the President's and Cashier's names are 
generally written by the same person, 
although in many instances they present 
a difi'erent appearance. There are bills in 
circulation bearing either genuine dies or 
vignettes; but upon close examination 
you will be enabled to detect any spurious 
bill, whether counterfeit or altered, by the 
instructions here given, if persevered in for 
a short time. We beg to suggest, if time 
will admit, the learner should examine 
minutely every bill he receives. A pow- 
erful pocket magnifying glass, which can 
be purchased for from fifty cents to one dol- 
lar at any of the opticians, will greatly en- 
able you to see and comprehena the differ- 
ence between genuine and spurious work. 


What will my readers give to know how 
to get richf Now, IwUl not vouch that 
the following rules will enable every per- 
son who may read them to acquire wealth ; 
but this I will answer for, that if ever a 
man does grow rich by honest means, and 
retains his wealth for any length of time, 
he must practice upon the principles laid 
down In the following essay. The re- 
marks are not original with me, but I 
strongly commend mem to the attention 
of every young man, at least as afibrding 
the true secret of success in attaining 
wealth. A single perusal of such an essay 
at an impressible moment, has sometimes 
a very wonderful effect upon the disposi- 
tion and character. 

Fortune, they say, is a fickle dame— Ml 
of her freaks and caprices ; who blindly 
distributes her favors without the slightest 
discrimination. So inconstant, so waver- 
ing is she represented, that her most faith- 
ful votaries can place no reliance on her 
promises. Disappointment, they tell us, 
16 the lot of those who make offerings at 

her shrine. Now, all this is a vile slander 
upon the dear blind lady. 

Although wealth often appears the result 
of mere accident, or a fortunate concur- 
rence of favorable circumstances without 
any exertion of skill or foresight, yet any 
man of sound health and unimpaired mind 
may become wealthy, if he takes the prop- 
er steps. 

Foremost in the list of requisites are 
honesty and strict integrity in every trans- 
action of life. Let a man have the reputa- 
tion of being fkir and upright in his deal- 
ings, and he will possess the confidence of 
allwho know him. , Without these qualities 
every other merit will prove unavailing. 
Ask concerning a man, " Is he active and 
capable!" Yes. "Industrions, temper- 
ate and regular in his habits ? "—Oh yes. 
"Is he honest! Is he trustworthy!" 
Why, as KS that, I am sorry to say that he 
Is not to be trusted ; he needs watching ; 
he is a little tricky, and will take an undue ' 
advantage, if he can. " Then I will have 
nothing to do vrith him," will be the in- 



variable reply. Why, then. Is honesty the 
best policy f Because, without it, you will 
get a bad name, and everybody will shun 

A character for knavery will prove an In- 
surmountable obstacle to snccess In al- 
most everyundertaklng. It will be found 
that the straight line is, in business, as in 
geometry, the shortest. In a word, it is 
almost impossible for a dishonest man to 
acquire wealth by a regular process of bus- 
iness, because he is shunned as a depreda- 
tor upon society. 

. Needy men are apt to deviate flromthe 
rule of integrity, under the plea that ne- 
cessity knows no law ; they might as well 
add that it knows no shame. The course 
is suicidal, and by destroying all confidence, 
ever keeps them immured in poverty, 
although they may possess every other 
quality for success in the world. 

Punctuality, which is said to be the soul 
of business, is another Important element 
in the art of money getting. The man 
known to be scrupulously exact in the ful- 
fillment of his engagements, gains the 
confidence of all, and may command all 
the means he can use with advantage: 
whereas, a man careless and regardless of 
his promises in money matters will have 
every purse closed against him. Therefore 
be prompt in your payments, 

Next, let us consider the advantages of 
a cautious circumspection in our inter- 
course with the world. Slowness of be- 
lief and a proper distrust are essential to 
success. The credulous and confiding are 
ever the dupes of knaves and impostors. 
Ask those who have lost their property 
how it happened, and yon vrill find in 
most cases that it has been owing to mis- 

§ laced confidence. One has lost by en- 
orsing, another by crediting, another 
by false representations; all of which a 
little more foresight and a little more dis- 
trust would have prevented. In the af- 
fairs of this world men are not saved by 
faith, but by the want of It. 

Judge of men by what they do, not by 
what they say. Believe in looks rather 
than words. Observe all their movements. 
Ascertain their motives and their ends. 
Notice what they say or do in their un- 
guarded moments. When under the influ- 
ence of excitement. The passions have 
been compared to tortures which force men 
to reveal their secrets. Before trusting a 
man, before putting it in his power to 
cause you a loss, possess yourself of every 
available information relative to him. 
Learn his history, his habits. Inclinations 
and propensities: his reputation for honor, 
industry, frugality and punctuality; his 
prospects, resources. Supports, advantages 
and disadvantages : his intentions and mo- 
tives of action; wno are his fHende and 
enemies, and what are his good or bad qual- 
ities. You may learn a man's good qualities 
and advantages tiom his Mends— his bad 
qnalities and disadvantages trom bis ene- 
mies. Make due allowance for exaggeration 
in both. Finally, examine carefUUy before 
engaging in anything, and act with energy 
afterwards. Have the hundred eyes of 

Argus beforehand, and the hundred hands 
of Briarius afterwards. 

Order and system In the management of 
business must not be neglected. Nothing 
contributes more to dispatch. Have a 
place for everything and everything in its 
place; a time for everything, and every- 
thing in its time. Do first what presses 
most, and having determined what is to be 
done, and how it is to be done, lose no 
time in doing it. Without this method all 
is hurry and^contkisiou, little or nothing is 
accomplished, and business is attended to 
with neither pleasure nor profit. 

A polite, afikble deportment is recom- 
mended. Agreeable maimers contribute 
powerfully to a man's success. Take two 
men, possessing equal advantages in every 
other respect, but let one be gentlemanly, 
kind, obliging and conciliating in his man- 
ners ; the other harsh, rude and disobliging; 
and the one will become rich, while the 
other will starve. 

We are now to consider a very itnportant 
principle in the business of money-getting, 
namely— Industry — nersevering, indefiti- 

table attention to business. Persevering 
iligence is the Philosopher's stone, which 
turns everything to gold. Constant, regu- 
lar, habitual and systematic application to 
business, must in time, if properly directed, 
produce great results. It must lead to 
wealth, with the same certainty that pov- 
erty follows in the train of idleness and 
inattention. It has been truly remarked 
that be who follows his amusements in- 
stead of his business, will, in a short time, 
have no business to follow. 

The art of money-saving is an important 
part of the art of money-getting. Without 
frugality no one can become rich ; with it, 
few would be poor. Those who consume 
as fast as they produce, are on the road to 
ruin. As most of the poverty we meet 
with grows out of idleness and extrava- 
gance, so most large fortunes have been 
the result of habituu industry and frugali- 
ty. The practice of economy is as neces- 
sary in the expenditure of time as of 
money. They say if " we take care of the 
pence the pounds will take care of them- 
selves." So. if we take care of the 
minutes, the days will take care of them- 

The acquisition of wealth demands as 
much selr-denial, and as many sacrifices 
of present gratification, as the practice of 
virtue itself. Vice and poverty proceed, in 
some degree, from the same sources, 
namely— the disposition to sacrifice the 
fliture to the present ; the inability to fore- 
go a small present pleasure for great ftiture 
advantages. Hhn fail of fortune in this 
world, as they fall of happiness in the 
world to come, simply because they are un- 
willing to deny themselves momentary en- 
joyments for the sake of permanent fhture 

Every large city Is filled with persons, 
who, in order to support the appearance of 
wealth, constantly live beyond their in- 
come, and make up the deficiency by 
contracting debts wnlch are never paid. 
Others, there are, the mere drones of so- 



clety, wliopass their days in Idleness, and 
• Subsist by pirating on the hives of the In- 
dustrions. Many who ran a short-lived 
careerof splendid beggary, could they be 
but persuaded to adopt a system of rigid 
economy for a few years, miitht pass the 
remainder of their> days in afBuence. Bnt 
no 1 They mnst keep np appearances,

Their debts aecumnlate; their credit

a shamenil dependence, or engage in crim-

How to Secure the Public Lands, 



The following circular gives all necessary 
information as to the procedure necessary 
in parchasing and securing the public 
lands : 


Gbn'l Land OymoE, July 19, 1865. f 

Numerous questions having arisen as to 
the mode of procedure to purchase public 
lands, or acquire title to the same by bounty 
land locations, by pre-emptions or by home- 
stead, this circDlar is commqnicated for the 
information of all concerned. 

In order to acquire title to public lands 
the following steps must be taken : 

1. Application must be made to the Reg- 
ister of the district land office in which the 
land desired may be situated. 

A list of all the land offices In the United 
States is fhroished by the Department, 
with the seats of the different offices, 
where It is the duty of the Register and 
Receiver to be in attendance, and give 
proper l^cillties and information to persons 
desirous of obtaining lands. 

The minimum price of ordinary public 
lands is $1,S5 per acre. The even or re- 
served sections felling within railroad 
grants are increased to double the minimum 
price, being $3,60 per acre. 

Lands once ofl'ered at public sale, and not 
afterwards kept out of market by reserva- 
tion, or otherwise, so as to prevent free 
competition, may be entered or located. 

3. By the applicant filing with the Regis- 
ter his written application describing the 

tract, with its area ; the Register will then 
certify to the receiver whether the land is 
vacant, with its price ; and when found to 
be so, the applicant must pay that price 
per acre, or may locate the same with land 
warrant, and thereafter the Receiver will 
give him a " duplicate receipt," which he 
IS required to surrender previons to the 
delivery to him of the patent, which may 
be had either by application for it to the 
Register or to the General Land OlBce, 

3. If the tract has not been offered at 
public sale it is not liable to ordinary pri- 
vate entry, but may be secured by a party 
legally qualified, upon his compliance with 
the requirements of the pre-emption laws 
of 4th September, 1841, and 8d March, 1843; 
and after such party shall have made ac- 
tual settlement for such a length of time 
as will show he designs it for his perma- 
nent home, and is acting in good faith, 
building a house and residing therein, he 
may proceed to the district land office, es- 
tablish his pre-emption claim according to 
law, by proving his actual residence and 
cultivation, and Bhowing that he is other- 
wise within the purview of these acts.— 
Then he can enter the land at $1,25, either 
In cash or with bounty land warrant, unlees 
the premises should be $3,50 acre lands. 
In that case the whole purchase-money can 
be paid in cash, or one-half in cash, the 
residue with a bounty )and warrant. 

4. But if parties legally qnirilfied desire 
to obtain title under the Homestead Act 
of 20th May, 1862, they can do so on com- 



plying with the Department Circular, dated 
80th October, 1862. 

6. The law confines Homestead entries 
to surveyed lands ; and although, in cer- 
tain States and Territories notedin the sub- 
joined li8t,jpre-emptor8 may go on land be- 
fore snrvey7yet they can only establish their 
claim after return of survey, but must file 
their pre-emption declaration within three 
months after receipt of ofBcial plat, at the 
local land-offlce where the settlement was 
made before survey. Where, however, it 
was made after survey, the claimant must 
file within three months after date of set- 
tlement; and where actual residence and 
cultivation have been long enough to show 

that the claimant has made the land bis 
permanent home, he can establish his 
claim and pay for the same at any time 
before the date of the public sale of'^ lands 
within the range in which his settlement 
may f^U. 

6. All nnoffered surveyed lands not ac- 
quired under pre-emption, homestead, oi 
otherwise, under express legal sanction, 
must be ofi'ered at public sale nnderthe 
President's Proclamation, and stmck off to 
the highest bidder, as required by act of 
AprUl4, 1820.

extent to which the libel has been pnbli shed. 
The jury, in estimating the damages, are 
to look at the character of the liGel, and

In every system of Weights and Measures 
it is necessary to have what are called 
" Standard!," as the pound, yard, gallon, 
&c., to he divided and multiplied into 
smaller and larger parts and denominations. 
The definition and construction of these 
Standards involve philosophical and scien- 
tific principles of a somewhat ahstruae 
character, and are made and procured hy 
the legislative department of the govern- 
ment. The nominal Standards in the new 
system are the Mxtbb, the Abb, the Litbb, 
and the Gbak. The only real Standard, the 
one by which all the other standards are 
measured, and from which the system de- 
rives its name of " Metric," is the Mbtbb. 


Is used for all measures of length, distance, 
hreadth, depth, heighth, &c., and was in- 
tended to be, and is very nearly, one ten- 
millionth of the distance on the earth's 
surface from the equator to the pole. It is 
about 89Ji inches, or S feet, 3 fiiches and 
3 eighths, and is to he sabstituted for the 

Ib a snrfiice whose side is ten Meters, and 
is equal to 100 square Meters or about i 
square rods. 

Ib the unit for measuring solids and capa- 
ity, and is equal to the contents of a cube 
whose edge IS one-tenth of a meter. It is 
about equal to 1 quart, and is a standard in 
cubic, dry and liquid measures. 

_ A cubic Meter (or Kiloliter) is called 
a atere, and is also used as a standard in cer- 
tain cubic measures. 


Is the Unit of weight, and is the weight of 
a cube of pure water, each edge of the cube 
being one one-hundredth of a Meter. It is 
about equal to 15>f grains. It is intended 
as the Standard in au weights, and with its 
divisions and multiples, to supersede the 
use of what are now called Avoirdupois, 
Apothecaries and Troy Weights. . 

Each of the foregoing Standards is divi- 
ded decimally, and larger units are also 
formed by multiples of 10, IflO, &c. The 
successive suborflinate parts are designa- 
ted by the prefixes Decl, Centi andMilli; 
the Buccessiva multiples by Seka, Hecto, 
Kilo and Myria ; each having its own nu- 
merical signification, as will ne more clear- 
ly seen in the tables hereinafter riven. 

The terms used may, at first sight; have 
a formtda}>l^ appearance, seem difficult to 

pronounce, and to retain in memory, and to 
be, therrfore, objectionable ; but with a lit- 
tle attention and use, the apprehended dif- 
ficnlty wijl"lbe found more apparent than 
real, as has been abundantly proved Inr es- 
perience. The importance, also, of con- 
formity in the use of commercial terms, on 
the part of the United States, with the 
pracftce of the many nations in which the 
system, with it* preient Tumunelature, has 
already been adopted, must neatly over- 
balance the combatively slight objection 
alluded to.

In large cities nothing is more common 
than to see large business establishments, 
which seem to nave an immense advantage 
over all pompetitprs, by thp wealth, expe- 
rience, and prestige they have acquired 
drop graduafly out of public view, and be 
succeeded by firms of a smaller capital, 
mpre pnragy, and more determined to have 
the fact that they sell snch and such com- 
modities known from one end of the land to 
the other! In other words, the establish- 
ments advertise; thp old die of dignity.— 
The former are ravenous to pass out of ob- 
scurity ipto publicity; the latter believe 
that their puDlicity is so obvious flu* it 
cannot be obscured. The first understand 
that they must thrust themselves iipoh 
ptiblic attention, or be disregarded: the 
second, having once obtained public atten- 
tion, suppose they have arrested it perma- 
nently; while, in fact, nothing is more char- 
acteristic of the world than the ease with 
which it forgets. 

Stephen Girard, than whom no shrewder 
business man ever lived, used to say : I 
have always considered advertising liber- 
ally and long to be the great medium of 
success In business, and the prelude to 
wealth. And I have made it an Invariable 
rule too, to advertise in the dullest times 
as well as the busiest ; long experience 
having taught me that money thus spent is 
well laid out ; as by keeping my business 
continually before the public it has secured 
me many sales that I would otherwise have

Brilliant Wbltewasb. 

TSueaj haye beard of the li^Uiant etncco 
wUtewaBh on the east end of the Presi- 
dent's honse at Washington. The follow- 
ing is a recipe for it ; it is gleaned from the 
National Intelligencer, with some addi- 
tional improTeinentB learned by experi- 
ments : Take half a bushel of nice nn- 
slacked lime, slack it with boiling watei;, 
cover it daring the process to keep in the 
steam. Strain the liquid throngh a fine 
sieve or straiiier, and add to it a peck of 
salt, prevlouely well dissolved in warm wa- 
ter ; three pounds of ground ripe, boiled to 
a tmn paste, and stirred in boiling l^ot ; half 
a pound of powdered Spanish whiting, and 
a pound of clean glpe, whichhas been pre- 
viously dissolved by soaking it well, and 
then hanging it over a slow fire, in a small 
kettle within a larg^ one filled with water. 
Add five gallons othot water to the mixt\ire, 
stir it wel, and let i|t stand a few days cov- 
ered ttojo. the dirt. 

It should be put on right hot ; for this 
purpose it can be kept in i^ kettle on a 
portable ftamace. It is said that about a 
pint of this mixture will cover a square 
yard upoii the outside of a house if proper- 
ly appUed. Brushee more or less small may 
be used according tp the neatness of the job 
required. It answers as well as oil p^lnt 
for wood, brick or scone, and is cheaper. 
It retains its brilliancy for many years. 
There is nothing of the kind that will 
compare yitb it, either for inside or oatside 

Coloring matter may lie put in and made 
of any snade you like. Spanish brown 
stirred in will make red pink^ niore or less 
deep according to the quantity.' A delicate 
tinge of this is very pretty, for inside walls. 
Finely pulverized common clay, well mixed 
with Spanish brown, makes a reddish stone 
color. Tellow-ochre stirred in makes yel- 
low wash, but chrome goes fhrther, and 
makes a color generally esteemed prettier. 
In all these cases the darkness of the shades 
of course is determined by the quantity of 
coloring used. It is dificalt to make niles, 
because dstes are difiTerent. It would be 
best to try experiments on a shingle and let 
it dry. We have been told that green must 
not be nfixed with lime. The lime de- 
stroys the color, and the color has an effect 
on the whitewash, which makes it crack 
and peei. When walls have been badly 
smoked, and you wish to have them a clean 
white, it is well to squeeze ipdigo plenti- 
fully throu^ a bag into the HKiter you use, 
before it i's stirred in the whole mixture. 
If a larger quantity than five gallons be 
wanted, the same proportion should be ob- 

Boir to get a Horse out of a 

The great difficulty of getting horses from 
a stable where sorronndmg buildings are is 
a state of conflagation, is well known.— 
The plan of oovemg their eyes with a blan- 
ket wUl not always succeed. 

A geptle^an whose hqrses hayebe^iliQ 
great peril from such a cause, having tried 

in vain to save them, hit upon the expedi- 
ent of having them harnessed as though go- 
ing to their usual work; when, to his aston- 
ishment, they were led from the stable 
without difficulty. 

Tbe Chemical Barometer. 

Take ^ long narrow bottle, such as an old- 
fashioned Ean-dje-CologAe bottle, and put 
into it two and a half drachms of camphor, 
and eleven drachms of spirits of wine: 
when tlie camphor is dissolved, which it 
will readily do by slight agitation, add the 
fo^owing mixture: TafK water, nine 
diacbms; nitrate of potash (saltpetre) 
thirty-eight grains ; and ,mariate of am- 
monia (sal ammoniac) thirty-eight grains. 
Dissolve these salts in the wat^r prior to 
mixing with the camphorated spirit : then 
shake the whole well together. Cork the 
bottle well, and wax the top, but after- 
wards make a very small aperture in the 
cork vrith a red-hot needle. The bottle may 
then be hung up, or placed in any stationa- 
ry ppsition. By observing the different 
appearances which the materials assume, 
as the weather changes, it becomes an ex- 
cellent prognosticatorof a coming storm or 
bfa^onuy sky. 

Iieeeb Barometer. 

Take an eight ounce phial, and put in it 
three gills of water, and place in it a healthy 
leech, changing the water in summer once 
a week, and tu winter once in a fortnight, 
and it will most accurately prognosticate 
the weather. If the weather is ^o be fine, 
the leech lies motionless at the bottom of 
the glass and coiled together in a spiral 
form ; if rain may be expected, it will creep 
up to the top of its lodgings and remain 
there till the weather is settled ; if we are 
to have wind, it vrill move throngh its habi- 
tation with amazing swiftness, and seldom 
goes to rest till it begins to blow hard ; if a 
remarkable storm of thunder and rain is to 
succeed, it will lodge for some days before 
almojBt continually out of the water, and 
discover great uneasiness in violent throes 
and convulsive-like motions ; in frost as in 
clear summer-like weather it lies constantly 
at the bottom ; and in snow as in rainy 
weather it pitches ite dwelling in the very 
mouth of the phial. The top should be cov- 
ered over with a piece of muslin.

To Harness Makers, Farmers, Teamsters, & others using Team Harness 
Tbe annexed Engraving Represents tlie 

"Cole Patent Wedge Tongue Trace Buckle," 

AVltlch was Patented Oct. 10,1865i It lias been fnlly and practical- 
ly tested, and wherever Introduced has met with the hearty approval of all parties using it. 
The following are a few of Its advantages. 

1. It allows the trace to he drawn PBEPBCTLT STRAIGHT without any Cramping. 

2. There is no draught on a tongue as in nearly every other trace buckle in use, which is 
liable to mt and Itreak the trace ; bnt the strain comes direcUy on an iron wedae, and the hard- 
er the pull on the trace the firmer the wedge holds it. 

8. It is more easily adjusted than any other buckle in use. Ifo hammers, sticks, stoties or 
levers being needed to assist in lengthening or shortening the trace. 

%. The saving in wear of traces, will, in a very short time, more than pay the slight dif- 
ference in cost between it and the ordinary buckle. 

6. Any thickness of trace can be used that is desired, as there are rivet holes cast in the 
tinder side of the bnckle for the purpose of fastening in layers of leather which will vary the 
space under the wedge as may be required. 

We only ask a fair trial, being confident that it will prove the truth of the above statement.

He is strict in Iceeping his engagements. 

Does nothing carelessly or in a hurry. 

Employs no one to do what he can easily 
do himself. 

Keeps everything in its proper place. 

Leaves nothing undone that ought to be 
done, and which circumstances permit him 
to do. 

Keeps his designs and business from the 
view of others. 

Is prompt and decisive with his custom- 
ers, and does not overtrade his capital. 

Prefers short credits to long ones, and 
cash to credit at all times, either in buying 
or selling ; and small profits in credit ca^s, 
with little risk to the chance of better gains 
with more hazard. 

He is clear and explicit in all his bar- 

Leaves nothing of consequence to memo- 
ry which he can and ought to commit to 

Keeps copies of all his important letters 
which he sends away, and has every letter, 
invoice, &c., relating to his business, titled, 
classed, and put away. 

Never suffers his deslc to be confused by 
many papers lying upon it. 

Is always at the head' of his business, 
well knowing that if he leaves it it will 
leave blm. 

Holds it as a maxim that lie whose credit 
is suspected is not one to be trusted. 

Is con8tantl}r examining his books, and 
sees through his whole affairs as far as care 
and attention will enable him. 

Balances regularly at stated times, and 
then makes out and transmits all his ac- 
counts current to his customers, both at 
home and abroad. 

Avoids as much as possible all sorts of 
accommodation in money matters and law- 
salts where there is the least hazard. 

He is economical in his expenditures, al- 
ways living within ids income. 

Keeps a memorandum book in his pock- 
et, in which he notes every particular rela- 
tive to appointments, addresses, and petty 
cash matters. 

Is cautious how he becomes surety for 
any person ; and is generous when urged 
by motives of humanity. 

Let a man act strictljr to these habits ; 
when once begun they will be easy to con- 
tinue—ever remembering that he hath no 
profits by his pains whom Providence doth 
not prosper— and success will attend his 

Take pleasure in your business, and it 
will become your recreation, 

Hope for the best, think for the worst, 
and bear whatever happens. 

A Stobt with a Mobai..— a Connecticut 
exchange tells the following story of a boy 
who was sent from Croton, Conn., to New 
London, one day last summer, with a bag 
of corn. The boy was gone all day, and re- 
turned with the bag unopened, which he 
duniped on the floor. Said he— 

'• There is your com, go and sell it, for I 

" Sold any f " 

" No : I've been all over London with it, 
and nobody said a word concerning green 
com. Two or three fellows asked me what 
I had in my bag, and I told 'emit was nohe 
of their business what it was." 

The boy is not nnlike hundreds of mer- 
chants who will promptly call him a fool 
for not telling what he had to sell, and who 
are actually doing the same thing on a much 
larger scale than did the boy, by not adver- 
tising their business. 

To Those who Wbite toe the Pkess.— 
It would be a great favor to editors and 
printers, should those who write for the 
Press observe the following mies. They 
are reasonable, and our correspondents 
will regard them as such :— 1. Write with 
black ink on white paper, wide ruled. S. 
Make the pages small, one-fourth that of a 
foolscap slieet. 3. Leave the second 
page of each sheet blank. 4. Give to the 
written page an Ample margin all around. 
5. Number the Mges in the order of their 
succession. 6. Write in a plain bold hand, 
with less respect to beauty, t. Use no ab- 
breviations which are not to appear in 
print. 8. Punctuate the manuscript as it 
should be printed. 9. For italics under- 
score one line ; for small capitals two : for 
capitals three. 10. Never interline without 
the caret to show its place. 11. Take special 
pains with every letter in proper names. 
12. Review eyery word to be sure that none 
is illegible. 13. Put directions to the print- 
er at the head of the first page. 14. Never 
write a private tletter to the editor on the 
printer's copy, butj always on a separate 

Cash and Cbbdit.— II yon would get rich 
don't deal in bill books. Credit is the "tempt- 
er in a new shape." Buy goods on trust, 
and you will buy a thousand articles that 
Gash would never have dreamed of. A shil- 
ling in the hand looks larger than ten shil- 
lings seen through the perspective of a three 
months bill. Cash is practical, while Credit 
takes horribly to taste and romance. Let 
Cash buy a dinner, and you will have beef- 
steak flanked with onions. Send Credit to 
market, and he will return with eight pair 
of woodcocks and a peck of mushrooms.— 
Credit believes in diamond pins and cham- 
pagne suppers. Cash is more easily satis- 
ned. Give him three meals a day, and he 
don't care much if two of them are made up 
of roasted potatoes and a little dirty salt.— 
Cash is a good adviser, while Credit is a 

?ood fellow to be on visiting terms with, 
f you want double Chins and contentment, 
do business with cash.
