INTRODVCTION. 



IIVTR-ODUCTIOTV. 



In presenting to the public the initial number of the " Gazet- 
teer and Directory of Albany and Schenectady Counties," 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 impossi- 
ble to collect it in the brief space of time in which it is essen- 
tial that all such works should be completed. Especially are 
our thanks due to the several editors of the Argus, Evening 
Journal, and Express, Albany ; the Union, Star, and Gazette, 
Schenectady ; and the Gohoes Cataract ; for the uniform kind- 
ness which has been evinced in calling publiic attention to the 
author's efforts ; and to the following persons viz., H. A. Homes* 
Librarian, State Library ; Ralph P. Lathrop, Assessor of Inter- 
nal Revenue ; H. Scripture, Deputy Superintendent of Peni- 
tentiary, Albany ; Prof. J. Pearson, Union College ; S. B. 
Howe, Supt. Public Schools, and Walter T. L. Sanders, County 
Judge, Schenectady ; G. A. Lomas, Shakers, Albany ; Robert 
Taylor, New Salem, and Hon. T. G. Younglove, Cohoes ; for 
essential aid in furnishing material for the work. Many others 
have kindly volunteered their aid, to all of whom we return 
our sincere thanks. 

The following works have been consulted in its preparation : 
French's " Gazetteer of the State of New York ;" " Documen- 
tary History' ^f New York ;" MunseU's « Annals of Albany ;" 
Dyer's " History of the Albany Penitentiary ;" " State Census 
Reports of 1865 ;" "History of Cohoes," "Albany Directory," 
published by Sampson, Davenport & Co., and many other works.

INTBOBUCTION. 



That errors may hare 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. Of 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, on 
pagesJ7J^Mid,3,8, ., 

It is also suggested that our patrons observe and become fa- 
miliar with the explanations at the commencement of the Di- 
rectory. 

Efforts were made to procure the new census statistics, for 
Albany and Schenectady Counties, but it was found impossible 
to secure them without delaying the publication of the work. 

The Map of the two Counties was engraved with great care 
by Messrs. " Weed, Parsons & Co.," of Albany, and, it is be- 
lieved, will prove a valuable acquisition to the work. 

The Advertisers represent some of the leading business men 
and firms of these and adjoining counties, also many enterpris- 
ing and reliable dealers in other parts of the State. We most 
cheerfully commend them all to the patronage of those under 
whose observation these pages may come. 

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

Broadway, New York, has Invented a Trues, 
which bide fair to sapersede all dtheis in 
nSe. It operates entirely by jnuscular ac- 
{tiuD , having no metallic eprlng.m; baud. It 
fcontraots and relaxes lustantly without any 
perceptible movement of the body. It has 
beeii proved effectual where the Metallic 
Spring and Hard Bubber Truss had failed, 
and judging from the testimony of many 
respeciSble citizensof New York, who have 
tried it, we infer that all other Muds will 
soon bo thiuwn aside. Tlie Professor im- 
parts much valuable information to those 
who call un him, and he appears to under- 
stand thorouijiily the subject upon which 
! he treats. We advise all who are wearing

withheld liis signature. In February, 1867, Congress passed an act im-

the territory became a State. It is an agricultural region, its prairies af- 
fording boundless pasture lands. 

JVJSVADji. was organized as a Territory Marck 2, 1881. Its nanfe 
signifies snowy, and is derived from the Spanish word mme (snow.) It 
comprises 81,539 square miles, or 52,184,960 acres, lying mostly within the 
Great Basin of the Pacific coast. Congress, at its session in 1864, passed 
an act which wa^approved March 31, to enable the people of the Terri- 
tory to form a Constitution and State G-overnment, in pursuance of which 
a Government was o:^anized and the Territory admitted as a State by 
Proclamation of the President, October 31, 1864. At the- time of its or- 
ganization the Territory possessed a popidatibn of 6,857 white settlers. 
The development of her mineral resources was rapid and almost without 
parallel, and attracted a constant stream of immigration to the Territory. 
As the population has not been subject to the fluctuations from which 
other Territories have suffered, the growth of Nevada has been rapid and 
steady. At the general convention election of 1863, 10,934 votes were cast. 
During 1864 great accessions to the population, were made. It is^ probably 
the ricliest State in the Union in respect to mineral resources. No region 
in the world is richer in argentiferous leads. It also contains an immense 
basin of salt, five miles square. Quartz mills are a very important feature 
in mining operations. The State is barren for agricultural purposes, and 
is remarkably healthy.

THE TERRITORIES, 

THEIR BOtrNDAKDBS, AEBA, PHTSIOAl HEATUKES, ETC. 



j1£j1S£'j1, our new territory, recenfly purchased Qf Eussia, compre- 
hends all the north-west coast tin the Pacific, and the adjacent islands north 
of the parallel of 50 degrees 40 minutes north, and the portion of the mam- 
land west of the meridian (about 140° west) of Mount St. Elias. The area 
is computed at 481,3'('a square miles. The climate, although warmer than 
in the same latitude on the eastern coast, is too rigorous to admit pf suc- 
cessful agricultural operations, and the chief value of the country and ad- 
jacent seas is derived from their fisheries and hunting grounds. The south- 
ern and central portions are mountaifioiiS; the northern portion along the 
Arctic ocean is (Jaite flfet, nowhere rising more than fifteen or twenty feet 
above the sea. The population is estimated at about 80,000, mostly Bsqui- 
meaux. 

A SIZOJV'A was organized by the Thirty-Sey enjh Congress, in the win- 
ter of 1863, out of the western half of New Mexico, the bouiodary between 
the'two Territories being the 109th meridian (33d west from Washington,) 
and includes ' the greater portions of the valleys of Colorado and Gila, 
which two rivers drain its entire surface, with parts of Utah, New Mexico 
and Nevada, and yet <jonvey,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 Tenriitory forms a block nearly square, and contains 
136,141 square miles, or 80,730,240 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. « 

C0-C<9JE^^/? was organized March#, 1861, from parts of Kansas, 
Nebraska and Utah, and is situated on each side of the Bocky Mountains,

ington. Area 104,500 square miles, or 66,880,000 acres. Population 50,- 
000, besides rmmerous tribes of Indians. By an enabling act passed March. 
31, 1864, the people of the Territory were authorized to frame a State Gon>- 
Stitution and organize a State Government^ and a Convention accordingly 
met'in 1865, ajid on the 13th of August adopted a Constitution, which was 
submitted to aztd ^.dopted by the people Septepiber 5, and St^jte officers | 
elected November 14. A bill to admit the I'erritory a^ a State passed 
Congress, but was vetoed May 35, 1866. IJt is. said ^o be a superior graz- 
ing and cattle producing region, witti a bealthy ahmate and rich soiL 
An extensive coal bed, a.Qa also gold, iroo, and other minerals abound.

down its either slope, but the greater portion lies east of the mountains. 
Its southern boundaty is the 4lst, its northern the 46th parallel of latitude. 
It extends frotn the 104th meridian on the east to the 110th on the west 
Area 326,373 square miles,- or 308,870,720 acres. For agricultural purposes

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 fonned by its intellection 
with the crest of the Kocky Mountains f thence following the crest of the 
Rocky Mountains northward till its intersection with the Bitter Root 
Mountains ; thence northward along the crest of said Bitter Root Moun- 
tains to its intersection with the 39th degree of longitude W. from Wash- 
ington; thence along said 39th degree of longitude northward to the 
boundary line of the British possessions; thence eastward along said 
boundary to the 37th degree of longitude W. from W^iShington; thence 
southward along said 27th 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 15,832. Large accessions have been made since the census was 
taken. -

have Ijien found. Not one-flftieth part of the soil is fit for tillage, but on 
that which i8,^bundant crops of grain and considerable cotton are raised.

eastern part when the latter Territory was admitted as a State, February 
14, 1859. Area 69,994 square miles, or 48,^36,800 acres. Population 
11,168, besides numerous tribes of Indians. 

WTOMIJVG was organized in July 1868. It lies between the 37th and 
34th meridians of longitude west fr^m Washington, and between the 
41st and 45th parallels of latitude. The Territory is rich |n mineral wealth, 
having large quantities of iron, coal, gypsum and building stone, besides 
vast quantities of gold, silver and copper. Salt springs of great value are 
found within its limits. The western portion of the Territory embraces 
what is generally known as the " Sweet Water Mines." The climate is 
healthy, and the Territory is rapidly .filling up with an enterprising and 
hardy population. The act of Congress organising the Territory, provides 
that " There shall he no denial of the elective franchise or any other right, 
on account of color or race, and all persons shall be equal before the law."

should be separately cancelled. When 
stamps are prmted upon checks, &c., so 
that in filling up the instrument, the fiiee of ^ 
the stamp is and must neoessarily be writ- ' 
ten across, no other canceUatibn will be re- 
quired. 

All cancellation must be distinct and legi- 
ble, and except in the case of proprietary 
stamps from^private dies, no ' method of 
cancellation'whicb differs from that above 
described can be recognized as legal and 
Sufficient.

It is not lawful to record any instrument, 
document, or paper required by law to be 
stamped, or any copy thereof, unless a 
stamp or stamps of the proper amount have 
been affixed and cancelled in the manner 
required by law ; and Buch instrument or 
copy and the record thereof are utterly null 
and void, and cannot be nsed or admitted as 
evidence in any court until the defect has 
been cured as provided in section 158. 

All wUlful violations of the law should be 
reported to the United States District Attor- 
ney within and for the district where they 
are committed. 

GENEKAI, REMARKS. 

Revenue stamps may be used indiscrimi- 
nately upon any of the matters or things 
enumerated in Schedule B, except proprie- 
tary and playing card stamps, for which a 
special use has been provided. 

Postage stamps cannot be used in pay- 
ment of the duty chargeable on instru- 
ments. 

The law does not designate which of the 
parties to an instrument shall furnish the 
necessary stamp, nor does the Commission- 
er of Internal Revenue assume to determine 
that it shall be supplied by one party rather 
thanby another ; out if an instrument subr 
ject to stamp duty is issued without having 
the necessary stamps affixed thereto, it can- 
not be recorded, or admitted, or used in ev- 
idence, in any court, until a legal stamp or 
stamps, denoting the amount of tax, snail 
have been affixed as prescribed by law, and 
the person who thus issues it is liable to a 
penalty, if he omits the stamps with an in- 
tent to evade the provisions of the internal 
revenue act. 

The first act imposing a stamp tax npon 
certain specified instruments took effect, so 
far as said tax is concerned, October 1, 1882. 
The impression which seems to prevail to 
some extent, that no stamps are required 
upon any instruments issued in the States 
lately in insurrection, prior to the surren- 
der, or prior to the establishment of coUec- 
tiou districts there, is erroneous. 

Instrnments issued in those States since 
October 1, 1862. are subject to the same tax- 
es as similar ones issued at the same time 
in 'the other States. 

No stamp is necessary upon an instrument 
executed prior to October 1, 1862, to make 



it admissible in evidence, or to entitle it to 
record. 

Certificates of loan in which there shall 
appear any written or printed evidence of 
an amonnt of money to be paid on demand, 
or at a time designated, are subject to stamp 
duty as "promissory notes." 

When two or more persons join in the ex- 
ecution of an instrument, the stamp to which 
the instrument is liable under the law, may 
be affixed and cancelled by either of them ; 
and "when more than one signature is affix- 
ed to the same paper, one or more stamps 
may be affixed thereto, representing the 
whole amount of the stamp required for 
such signatures." 

No stamp is required on any warrant of 
attorney accompanying a bond or note, 
when such bond or note has affixed thereto 
the stamp or stamps denoting the duty re- 
quired ; and, whenever any bond or note is 
secured by mortgage, but one stamp duty is 
required on such papers— such stamp duty 
being the highest rate required for such in- 
struments, or either of them. In such case 
a note or memorandum of the value or de- 
nomination of the stamp affixed should be 
made upon the margin or in the acknowl- 
edgement of the instrument which is not 
stamped. 

Particular attention is called to the 
change in section 154, by striking out the 
words "or used;" the exemption thereun- 
der is thus restricted to documents, Ac, 
issued by the officers therein named. Also 
to the changes in sections 152 and 158, by 
inserting the words "and cancelled in the 
manner required by law." 

The acceptor or acceptors of any bill of 
exchange, or order for the payment of any 
snm of money, drawn or pljporting to he 
drawn in any foreign country, but payable 
in the United States, must, before paying or 
accepting the same, place thereupon a 
stamp indicating the duty. 

It is only upon conveyances of realty sold 
that conveyance stamps are necessary. A 
deed of real estate made without valuable 
consideration need not be stamped as a 
conveyance ; bnt if it contains covenants, 
such, for instance, as a covenant to warran* 
and defend the title, it should be stamped 
as an agreement or contract. 

When a deed purporting to be a convey- 
ance of realty sold, and stamped according- 
ly, is inoperative, a deed of^conflrmation, 
made simply to cure the defect, requires no 
stamp. In such 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, need not be stamped 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 where money or other valuable consid- 
eration is paid by one 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 14nds sold for unpaid 
taxes, issued since August 1, 1866, by the 
officers of any county, town, or other mu-

alclpal corporation in the discharge of their 
strictly official duties, is exempt ftom 
stamp lax. 

A conTeyance of realty sold, Object to a 
mortgage, shdnld he stamped according to 
the ccinslderation, or the ,valne of the ^to^- 
ettv unenoumberea. The consideration in 
sndi easels to be found by adding the 
amount paid for the equity of redeftiption 
to the mortgage ^ebt. The fact that one 
part of the consideration Is paid to the 
mortgagor and the other part to the mort- 
gagee does not dhange the liability of the 
conveyance. 

The stamp tax upon a mortgage Is based 
upon the amount it is given to secure. The 
fact that the value of the property mortgag- 
ed is less tiian that aijuount, and that conse^ 
qnenflythe security is only partial, does, 
not change the liability of the instrument. 
When, therefore, a second-mortgage is giv- 
en to securethepayment'of a sum of mon- 
ey partially secured hy a priotmor%age -up- 
on other property, or whrai two iilor%ages 
upon separate property, are given at me 
same time to secure the pafyment of the 
sadie sum, :^h should be stamped as 
thongfa it '#Bie the only one. 

A mortgagegiven to secure a surety from 
loss, or Bi#n for any purpose whatever, 
other than as security for the payment of a 
definite aid certaiii sum of money, is taxa- 
able only'as-au agrewnent of contract. 

The stamp duty upon a lease, agreement, 
memorandum, orcontractfor the^re, use, 
or rent of any land, tenement, or portion 
thereof, is based upon the atmiuU rent ov 
rental value of the property teasM; attd the 
duty is the same vrhenier 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 equal to 
that imposed npon a mortage for the 
amount remaining unpaid^ flMs taxis re- 
quired upon every such transfer In writing, 
whether there is a «a2e 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 16 to transfer a mortgage by which 
the instrumeht is secured. 

An assi^ment pf a lease within the mean- 
ing and intent of Schedule B, is an assign- 
ment of the Uasihiold, 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 soAe 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 ^vlng nor purporting 
to give a claim to the leasehold, or to any 
part thereof, but simply a right to the rents, 
Sit„ is subject to stamp tax as a contract 
&c agreement on];;. 

The stattpJSx upon a flre:inBnrance 
policy is based upon thevrmiim. 

Deposit notes taken by a mul^ flre In- 
surance company, not a? paymftat of pre- 
mium nor as evidence < of indebtedness 
therefor, but to be usgd siihpjy, as a basis 
upon which to make r&teiitile asse'ssments to 
meet the losses Incurred by the company, 



should not be reckoned as premitim In de- 
termining the amount of stamp taxes upon 
the policies. 

When a policy of insurance properly 
stamped has been issued and lost, no stamp 
is necessary npon aholiher' issued by the 
same company to the same paHy, covering 
the same prbpert^, time, &c., add designed 
simply to supply 'the loss. The second 
policy should recite the loss of the flrat.

not a renewal within, the meaning of the 
statute: The payment einipljr prevents the 
policy ftom expiring^ by reason of non-per- 
formance of its conditions ; a receipt given 
for such a payment requires a two-cent 
stamp, if me atuoimt reaeiveS exceeds

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

A stamp duty of twenty-flve cents is im- 
posed npon the "protest of every note, bill 
of exchange, check or draft," and upon 
every marme 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, Ac, thus protest-

process is nsedbya sheriff or other person 
in making personal service, or in attaching

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 Tt is to be retained by 
the parties, a five-cent stamp should be af- 
fixed. 

The stamp tax upon a bill of sale, by 
which any snip 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 ujpon conveyances of realty 
sold; a bill of sale of any other personal 
property should be stamped as a contract 
or agreement. 

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

Written or printed assignments of agree- 
ments, 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 is necessary upon the registry 
of a judgment, eventhongh the registry is 
.such in Its legal effect as to create a lien 
iwhich 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 
lincorporated company or society, except 
religious, charitable, or literary societies, 
or public cemeteries," is signed by sever- 
al stockholders, owning separate and dis- 
tinct shares, it is, in its legal effect, the 
separate instrument of each, and requires 
stamps to the amount nf ten cents for each 
aud every signature; one or more stamps 
may be used representing the whole amount 
required. 



A notice from landlord to tenant to 
quit possession of premises requires no 
stamp. 

A stamp tax is imposed upon every 
"manifest for custom-house 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. 

Is a vessel clears in ballast and has no 
car^o whatever, no stamp is necessary; 
but if she has any, however small the amount 
— a stamp shomd be used. 

A bond to convey real estate requires 
stamps to the amount of twenty-five cents. 

The stamp duty upon the probate of a 
will, or upon letters of administration, is 
based upon the sworn or declared value of 
all the estate and effects, real, personal, 
and mixed, undiminished 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 out 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 de bonis non should be stamped 
accordmg to the amount of property re- 
maining to be administered upon thereun- 
der, regardless of the stamps upon the orig- 
inal letters, 

A m^TQCOpy of an inetrumentis not sub-

attesting it : but when the instrument is 
executed 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 ss 
the other, and each should be stamped as 
an original.

44 BVLES FOR DETECTING COUNTERFEIT BANK NOTES. 



Infallible Rules for Detecting Cotinterfeit or 
Spurious Bank Notes. 



Rule iBt.— Examine the shading of the 
letters in title of Bank called lathewobk, 
"Which in genuine notes presents an even, 
Btraight, light and silky appearance, gen- 
erally BO fine and smoothaB to appear to be 
all in one solid, pale body. Ii:i tne counter- 
feit the lines are coarse and irregalar, and 
in many of the longer lines hreaks will be 
perceived, thus presenting a very inferior 
finish in comparison to genuine work. 

2d.— Observe the dies, circles and ovals 
in the genuine; they are composed of a 
network of lines, which, by crossing each 
other at certain angles, produce an endless 
variety of figures ; bee thb one cent stamp 
ATTACHED. The fine line alone is the 
unit which enables you to detect BpnriouB 
work. In the counterfeit, the beprebented 
white lines are coarse, irregular, and cross 
each other in a confused, irregular manner, 
thus producing blurred and imperfect 
fignreB. 

3d.— Examine the form and featorcB of 
all human figures on the note. In the gen- 
nine, 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 nose, mouth and 
chin, well formed, natural and expressive ; 
the lips ai^ 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 tne 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 genuine. 

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



fine letters. Counterfeits never bear the 
imprint perfect. This rule should be strict- 
ly obserred^ as it is infallible in detecting 
counterfeits. 

5th.— 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 ; dear sky is formed of fine 
parallel lines, and when clonds or heavy 
skies appear, they cross each other, and 
bear a soft, smooth and natural appear- 
ance. The perspective, showing a view of 
the surroimding country, is always clear 
and distinct. The small figures in the 
background are always plainly seen, and 
their outlines 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 poorly and unnaturally defined.— 
The lines 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 eyefr 
are seldom clearly defined. Ships are | 
poorly drawn, the texture of the canvass 
coarse and inferior in Btyle of workman- 
ship, thus giving an artificial appearance. 
Railroad care are also poorly executed ; the 
car farthest ftqm the eye is usually the 
most imperfect. The perspective is always 
imperfect, the figures in the background 
can Beldom be recognized. 

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



HOW TO SUaOEED IN BVSINESS. 



45 



too dark, but from the back or flnish of tbe 
wliite lines }roa bave a snre test. Again 
observSparticularly the words " Five " or 
" Ten Dollars " as the case ma; be, denot- 
ing the denomination of the note; the 
parallel outlines and Bhadine (if any) are 
coarse and imperfect. Alterations are fre- 
quently made by pasting a greater denomi- 
nation OTer a smaller, out by holding the 
bill np to the light, the fraud will be per- 
ceived. Another method resorted to is to 
cat oat the figures in the dies as well as 
the words one dollar, or tha words two or 
three as the case ntay be, ana with a sharp 
eraser, scrape down the ends and also the 
edges of the pieces to be inserted; when 
the pieces thus prepared are affixed they 
are hardly perceivable; but by passing 
the note through the hand, so as to teA 
the die both with the finger and thumb 
at the same tliiie, the fraud will be de- 
tected bji the stiffiiess of the outer 
edges," occasioned by the gum or method 
adopted" in affixing the' parts. The letter 
S should always be ezammed, as in many 
alterations it iff pasted or stamped at the 
end of the word " dollar;" and even when 
stamped thece, the carrying out of the out- 
lines for its shading will readily show the 
frttud. 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 nbe or name of the bank, third the 
town or location. 

Geotibal Bbhakes in BiiirxBiiNoi: to 
CouHTBBTBiTS.— The paper on which they 
are printed Is generally of a very inferior 
quaUty, with less body, finish and tough- 
ness than bank note paper lias. The mk 
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 ez- 
nibiting specks of white in the most promi- 
nent letters. The date and filling up, and

HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS. 



What will my readers rive to know how 
to get rich? Kow, 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 tiis wealth for any length of time, 
he must practice upon the pnncl^es laid 
down in the following essay. The re- 
marks are not oririnal with me, but I 
strongly commend them to the attention 
of every young man, at least as affording 
the true secret of success in attaining 
wealth. A single perusal of such an essay 
at an impressible moment, has sometimes 
a very wonderfol effect upon the disposi- 
tion and charact^. 

Fortune, tbegr'say, is a fickle dame— ftdl 
of her freaks and caprices; w)io blindly 
distribates her favors without tbe slightest 
discrimination. ' So Inconstant, so waver- 
ing is she represented, that her most ihith- 
flu votaries can place no reliance on her 
promises'. Disappointment, they tell us, 
IS the lot of those who make offerings at 



her shrine. N'ow, all t^is is avile slander 
upon the dear blind lady. \ 

Although wealth often appears the result 
of mere accident, or a fortunate concur- 
rence of favorable circumstances vrithout 
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. ' ' • ,-11-,,.';. -.; _^

variable reply. Why, then, is honesty the 
best policy ? Because, without it, you will 
get a baa name, and everybody will shun 
you. 

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

Needy men are apt to deviate from the 
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 gettmg. 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 nse 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 pe^ments, 
t Next, let us consider the advantages of 
a cautions 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 
bow it happened, and you will find in 
most cases that it has been owing to mis- 

S laired 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 wonld 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 friends and 



enemies, and what are Uls good or bad qual 
ities. You may learn a man's good qualitleE 
and advantages from his Mends— nis bad 



qualities and disadvantages from his ene- 
mies. Make due allowance for exaggeration 
in both. Finally, examine carefully 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 cvnfUsion, little or nothing is 
accomplished, and business is attended to 
with neither pleasure nor profit. 

A polite, affable deportment is recom- 
mended. Agreeable manners contribute 
powerfully to a man's success. Take two 
men, possessing eqnal 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 important 
principle in the business of money-getting, 
namely— Industry — persevering, Indef ati- 

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 trnly remarked 
that he 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 tq' 
ruin. As most of the poverty we meet 
with grows out of idleness and extrava- 
gance, BO most large fortunes have been 
the result of habitual 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- 
selves. 

The acouisition of wealth demands as 
much seli-denlal, 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 
future to the present ; the inability to fore- 
go a small present pleasure for great future 
advantages. Men fail of fortune In this 
world, as they fitil of happiness in the 
world to come, simply because they are un- 
willing to deny themselves momentary en- 
joyments fqr the sake of permanent future 
nappiness. 

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 wlilch are never paid. 
Others, there are, the mere drones of so-

inal practices which entail hopeless wretch- 
ednese and infiuny on themeelTea and

iStick to the bueineBB'ln which you are 
regularly employed. Let speculators make 
thouBande in a year or a day ; mind your 
own regular trade, never turning firom it 
to the right hand or to the left. If you are

LAWS. 



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

BZPABTHENT OT THE IlTTZBIOB, I 

Gen'l Laud Office, July 19, 186S. f 

KumerouB (lueBtlons having arisen as to 
the mode of procedure to purchase public 
landB,^or acquire title to the same by bounty 
land locations, by pre-emptions or by home- 
stead, this drcular is conmumicatea 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 I^g- 
iBter of the district land office in which the 
land desired may be situated. 

A llBt of all the land offices In the United 
States Is fumlBhed by the Department, 
with the -seats of the different offices, 
where it is the dut^of the Begister and 
Beceiver to be kt aMendance, and give 

S roper facilities and information to persons 
esirouB of obtaining lands. 
The minimnni^nce at ordinaj^ public 
lands is $1,25 pfflTaore. The even or re- 
served secbons falling within railroad 
grants are increased to double the minimum 
price, being ^,B0 per acre. 

Lands once offered at public sale, and not 
afterwards kept out of market by reserva- 
tion, or otherwise, so as to prevent &ee 
competition, may-'6e ^tered or located. 

2. By the applicant filing with the Begis- 
ter his written application describing the 



tract, with its area; the Be^aterwill then 
certlfyto the receiver whether the land is 
vacant, with its price; and when found to 
be-eo, the applicant must pay that price 
per acre, or may locate the esime with land 
warrant, and wereafte): the Beceiver will 
give Mm a " duplicate receipt," which he 
IB required to Burrender prevlons to ,the 
dellv^iy to him of the patent, which may 
be had either by application far it to the 
Begister or to thje General Land Office. 

3. If the tr&ct has not be»i offered fi, 
public sale it is not liable to ordinary pri- 
vate enti?, but may b^ secured by a party 
legally qualified, upon his compiUance with 
the reqiuirementB of the pre-emption laws 
of 4th BepteUber, 1841, land 3d Much, 1843; 
and Jtfter snehi party shall have made ac- 
tual settlement S^v sooh a length of time 
ae willshow he designs it for Ms perma- 
nent home, and is acting ki good faith,

wise within thcpucrfew 'of these acts.— 
Then he can enter Aljetonfffat St®, either 
in cash or with bouii^l^d^d^aiit, unless 
the premises ^uld be:'|2tp)^acre lands. 
In that) cage the^hote jMcttage-money can 
be paid in caBh^orijan^jjlf ii cash, the 
residue with a bahaMMa warrant.

to obtain title nm^We Homestead Act

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

5. The law confines Homestead entries 
to surveyed lands ; and although, in cer- 
tain States and Territories noted m the sub- 
joined list, pre-einptors may go on land be- 
fore survey, yet they can only establish their 
claim after return of survey, but must file 
their pre-emption declaration within three 
months after receipt of official plat, at the 
local land-office where the settlement was 
made before survey. Where, however, it 
was made after survey, the claimant mnst 
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 his 
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 fall. 

6. All nhofitered surveyed lands not ac- 
quired under pre-emption, homestead^ oi 
otherwise, under express legal sanction, 
mnst be off'ered at public sale under the 
President's Proclamation, and struck oflf to 
the highest bidder, as required by act of 
April 24, 1820.

48. If an agreement upon which a party 
relies be oral only, it must be provpd by 
evidence. But if the contract be reduced 
to writing, it proves itself j and now no 
evidence whatever is receivable for the 
purpose of varying the contract or aft'ecting 
Its obligations. The reasons are obvious. 
The law prefers written to oral evidence, 
from its greater precision and certainty, 
and because it is lebs open to fraud. And 
where parties have cl'osed a negotiation 
and reduced the result to writing, it is pre- 
sumed that they have written all they in- 
tended to agree to, and therefore, that what 
is omitted was finally rejected by them.—

51. The liability of an innkeeper is not 
confined to personal baggage, but extends 
to all the property of the guest that he con-

pany, by a passenger, to recover damages 
for injuries sustained on the road, it is not 
compuisory upon the plaintiff to prove ac- 
tual negligence in the defendants ; but it

prove that the injury was not owing to any 
fault or negligence of theirs. 

66. A guest is a competent witness, in an 
action between himself and an inn-keeper, 
to prove the character and value of lost 
personal baegage. Money in a trunk, not 
exceeding the amount reasonably required 
by the traveler to defray the expenses of 
the journey which he has tmdertaken, is a 
part of his baggage; and in case of its loss, 
while at any inn, the plaintiff may prove its 
amount by nis own testimony.

ing to show the capacity In which he act-

trol its effects by suitable InetructionB to

thing, however slight, to mislead or deceive

highway or river, or as ' by,' or ' running to 
the bank of ' the river ; these expressions 
carry the grantee to the center of the high- 
way or river. 

97. The court will take pains to construe 
the words used in a deed in such a way as 
to eft'ect the intention of the parties, how- 
ever unskillfnlly the instrument may be 
drawn. But a court of law cannot exchange

THE DECIMAL SYSTEM 



OP 



WEIGHTS AND MEASURES. 

As Asmorizel I17 Act or Cosgress-AnproTed I11I7 28, 1866. 



STANDARDS. 

In every system of Weights and Meaenres 
it is necessary to liave what are called 
" Standards" as the poand, yard, s;allon, 
&c., to be divided and mnltiplied into 
smaller and larger parte and denominations. 
The definition and conBtmction of these 
Standards involve philosophical and scien- 
tific principles of a somewhat abstruse 
character, and are made and procured by 
the legislative department of the govern- 
ment. The nominal Standards in the new 
system are the Ubtkb, the Abe, the Litek, 
and the Obax. The only reai Standard, the 
one by which all the other standards are 
measured, and from which the system de- 
rives its name of " Metric," is the Hzteb. 

THE METER 
Is used for all meaaores of length, distance, 
breadth, depth, heighth, &e., 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 39^ inches, or 3 feet, 8 inches and 
3 eighths, and is to be sabstltuted for the 
yard. 

THE ARE 
Is a surl^e whose side is ten Meters, and 
is equal to 100 square Meters or about 4 
square rods. 

THE LITER 

Is 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. 
D 



^" A cubic Meter for Kiloliter) is called 
a stere^ and is also usedas a standard in cer- 
tain cubic measures. 

THE GRAM 

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 l&yi 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, 100, &c. The 
successive subordinate parts are designa- 
ted by the prefixes Deci, Centi and Milli ; 
the successive multiples by Deka, Hecto, 
Kilo and Myria ; eacn having its own nu- 
merical signification, as will be more clear- 
ly seen in the tables hereinafter riven. 

The terms used may, at first sight, have 
a formidable appearance, seem difBcult to 

Eronounce, and to retain in memory, and to 
e, therefore, objectionable ; but with a lit- 
tle attention and use, the apprehended dif- 
ficulty will be found more apparent than 
real, as has been abundantly proved by ex- 
perience. The importance, also, of con- 
formity in the use ot commercial terms on 
the part of the United States, with the 
practice of the many nations in which the 
system, with Its present tunnenOalure, has 
already been adopted, must greatly over- 
balance the comparatively slight objection 
alluded to.

DlBconnt and Premlnm. 

When a person bnye an article for $1,00— 
20 per cent off, (or dieconnt,) and Bells it 
again for $1,00, he malcee a profit of 25 per 
cent, on Ms inrestnient. Thns: He pays 
80 cents and eellB for $1,00— a gain of 20 
cents, or 25 per cent of 80 cents. And for 
any transaction where the sale or purchase 
of gold, silver, or currency is concerned, 
the following nilee will apply in all cases. 

EuLE let. — ^To find premium when dis- 
count is given: Multiply 100 by rate of 
discount and divide by lOO, less rate of dis- 
count. 

RuLB 2d.— To And discount when pre- 
mium is given. Multiply the rate of interest 
by 100, and divide by 100, plus the rate of 
premium. 

Suppose A has $140 in currency, which 
he wishes to exchange for gold, when gold 
is 27 per cent, ^premium, now much gold 
should he receive ? In this case the pre- 
mium is given, consequently we must find 
the discount on A's currency and subtract 
it tiom the $140, as per rule 2d, showing 
the discount to be a tnfie more than 21 per 
cent, and that he should receive $110.60 in 
gold.

Facts on Advertising. 

The advertisamMitB in an ordinary num- 
ber of the London Times exceed 2,500. The 
annual advertising bills of one London firm 
are eald to amount to $200,000: and three 
others are mentioned who eacn annually 
expend for the purpose $50,000. The ex- 
pense for advernaing the eight editions of 
the "Encycloptedte Britannia " is said to 
have been $16,000. 



In large cities nothing is more common 
than to see large business establishments, 
which seem to nave an immense advantage 
over all competitors, by the wealth, expe- 
rience, and prestige they have acquired, 
drop gradually out of public view, and be 
succeeded by firms of a smaller capital, 
more energy, and more determined to have 
the fact that they sell such and such com- 
modities known from one end of the land to 
the other. In other words, the establish- 
ments advertise ; the old die of dignity.— 
The former are ravenous to pass one of ob- 
scurity into publicity; the latter believe 
that meir publicity is eo obvious that it 
cannot be obscured. The first understand 
that they must thrust themselves upon 
public 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 
lost.

Brilliant Wbltewaah. 

Many have heard of the brilliant stucco 
whitewash on the east end of the Presi- 
dent's house at Washington. The follow- 
ing; is a recipe for it ; it is gleaned from the 
National Intelligencer, with some addi- 
tional improvements learned by experi- 
ments : Take half a bnehel of nice un- 
slackcd lime, slack it with boiling water, 
cover it during the process to keep in the 
steam. Strain the liquid throngh a fine 
sieve or strainer, and add to it a peck of 
salt, previously well diesolred in warm wa- 
ter ; three pounds of ground rice, boiled to 
a thin paste, and stirred in boiling hot ; half 
a pound of powdered Spanish whiting, and 
a pound of clean glue, which has been pre- 
viously dissolved by soaking it well, and 
then hanging it over a slow fire, in a small 
kettle within a large one filled with water. 
Add five gallons ofhot water to the mixture, 
stir it well, and let it stand a few days cov- 
ered from the dirt. 

It should be put on right hot ; for this 
purpose it can be kept in a kettle on a 
portable ftirnace. It is said that about a 
pint of this mixture will cover a square 
yard upon the outside of a house If proper- 
ly applied. Brushes more or less small may 
be used according to the neatness of the job 
required. It answers as well as oil paint 
for wood, brick or stone, and is cheaper. 
It retains it * brilliancy for many years. 
There is nothing of the kind that will 
compare with It, either for inside or outside 
walls. 

Coloring matter may be put in and made 
of any shade you like. Spanish brown 
stirred in will make red pink, more 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, bnt chrome goes further, 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 difflcolt to make rules, 
because tastes are different. It would be 
best to try experiments on a shingle and let 
it dry. we have been told that green must 
not be mixed with lime. The lime de- 
stroys the color, and the color has an effect 
on the whitewash, which makes it crack 
and peel. When walls have been badly 
smoked, and you wish to have them a clean 
white, it is well to squeeze Indigo plenti- 
fully through a bag into the water you use, 
before it is stirred In the whole mixture. 
If a large? quantity than live gallons be 
wanted, the same proportion should be ob- 
served. 

W.OW to e^t. a Horse ont of a 
Fire. 

The great diffleulty of getting horses from 
a stable where surrounding buildings are in 
a state of conflagation, is well known.— 
The plan of covering their eyes with a blan- 
ket will not always succeed. 

A gentleman whose horses have been in 
great peril ftom such a cause, having tried 



in vain to save them, hit npon 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 diificulty. 



Tbe Chemical Barometer. 

Take a long narrow bottle, such as an old- 
fhshioned Eau-de-Cologne bottle, and put 
into it two and a half drachms of camphor, 
and eleven drachms of spirits of wine: 
when the camphor Is dissolved, which it 
will risadily do by slight agitation, add the 
following mixture: Take water, nine 
drachms ; nitrate of potash (saltpetre) 
thirty-eight grains ; and muriate of an^ 
monia (sal ammoniac) thirty-eight grains. 
Dissolve these salts in the water 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 with a red-hot needle. The bottle may 
then be hung up, or placed in any stationa- 
ry position. By observing the different 
appearances which the materials assume, 
as the weather changes, it becomes an ex- 
cellent prognosticator of a coming storm or 
ofa sunny sky. 



I<eech 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 in winter once In a fortnight, 
and it will most accurately prognosticate 
the weather. If the weather is to 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 will move through its habi- 
tation with amazing swiftness, and seldom 
goes to rest till it begins to blow hard ; if a 
remarkable storm or thunder and rain is to 
succeed, it will lodge for some days before 
almost 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 its dwelling in the very 
mouth of tne phial. The top should be cov- 
ered over with a piece of muslin. 



To Ueasurx 61UIH IN i. BiK.— Find the 
number of cubic feet, hrom which deduct 
one-ffth. The remainder is the number of 
bushels — allowing, however, one bushel 
extra to every 224. Thus in a remainder of 
224 there would be S26 bushels. In a re- 
mainder of 448 there would be 460 bushels, 
&c.

VALUABLE RECIPES. 



[The following recipes are vouched for by 
several who have tried them and proven 
their virtues. Many of them have been sold 
singly for more than the price of this 
book.— Pub.] 

HORSES. 

RiNO BoHS AKD SPAvni.— 2 oz. each of 
Spanish flies and Venice turpentine; 1 oz. 
each of aqua ammonia andeuphorbium : >^ 
oz. red precipitate ; 3^oz. corrosive subli- 
mate ; 1^ lbs. lard. When thoroughly pul- 
verized and mixed, heat carefully eo as not 
to bum. and pour off free ft-om sediment. 

For ring-bone, rab in thoroughly, aft«r 
removing hair, once in 48 hours. For spav- 
in, once m ^ hours. Cleanse and press 
oat the matter on each application. 

PoLL-Kvn,. — Gum arable U oz ; common 
potash X oz ; extract of belladonna }i dr. 
Fat the gum in just enough water to dis- 
solve it. Pulverize the potash and mix 
with the dissolved gum, and then put in the 
extract of belladonna,and it will be ready for 
use. Use with a eyilnge after having 
cleansed with soap sads, and repeat once 
in two days till a cure is affected. 

ScouBS.— Powdered tormentil root, giv- 
en In milk, from 3 to 6 times daily till cared.

MISCELLANEOUS. 

Pii-Bs— Perfectlt Coked.— Take flour of 
sulphur 1 oz., rosin 3 ozs., pulverize and mix 
well together. (Color with carmine or 
cochineal, if you like.) Dow— What will 
lie on a five cent piece, night and morning, 
washing the parts freely in cold water once 
or twice a day. This is a remedy of great 
value. 

The cure will be materially hastened by 
taking a table-spoon of sulphur in a half 
pint of milk, daily, until the cure is affected. 

Subs Citrx fob Corns, Warts and 
Chilblains.— Take of nitric and muriatic 
acids, bine vitriol and salts of tartar, 1 oz. 
each. Add the blue vitriol, pulverized, to 
either of the acids; add the salts of tartar 
in the same way ; when done foaming, add 
the other acid, and in a few days it will be 
ready for use. For chilblains and corns 
apply it very lightly with a swab, and re- 
peat in a day or two until cured. For warts, 
once a week, until they disappear. 

Hoor-AiL IN Sheep.- Mix 2 ozs. each of 
butter of antimony and muriatic acid with 
1 oz. of pulverized white vitriol, and apply 
once or twice a week to the bottom of the 
foot. 

CoHuoN Rhbuhatism.— Kerosene oil 9 
ozs.; neats-foot oil 1 oz.; oil of organnm X 
oz. Shake when used, and rub and heat in

in a half a boiler of hot water ; cut up fine ; 
add three pounds of sal-soda made flue; 
one ounce of pulverized roaln ; etii it often 
till all is dissolved : Inst as yon take it off 
the fire, put in two table-spoonfuls of spirits 
of turpentine and one of ammonia : pour it 
in a barrel, and fill up with cold soft water; 
let it stand three or four days before using. 
It is an excellent soap for washing clothes, 
extracting the dirt readily, and not fading 
colored articles. 



VAL UABLE RECIPES. 



61 



Water Proof for Lkatbsr.— Take Un- 
•eed oil 1 pint, yellow wax and white tur- 
pentine each % oze. Burgundy pitch 1 oz., 
melt and color with lampblack. 

To Keep Cidkr Swebt.— Pat into each 
barrel, immediately after making, X lb. 
ground mustard, 2 oz. salt and S oz. pnlver- 
tzed chalk. Stir them in a little elder, pour 
them into the barrel, and ahake up well. 

Ague CiniB. -Procure IJi table-epoone of 
freeh mandrake root juice, (by pounding) 
and mix with the game quantity of molae- 
see, and take in three equal doBee, 3 hours 
a part, the whole to be taken 1 hour before 
the chill comes on. Take a Bwallow of 
Bome good Hitters before meals, for a couple 
of weeks after the chills are broken, and the 
cure will be permanent. 

Cure for Salt Rheum or Sourtt.— 
Take of the pokeweed, any time in sum- 
mer ; pound It ; press out the juice ; strain 
it into a pewter dish; set it in the sun till it 
becomes a salve — then put it into an earth- 
en mug : add to it fresh water and bees' 
wax sufficient to make an ointment of com- 
mon consistency ; simmer the whole over 
a fire till thoroughly mixed. When cold, 
rub the part affected. The patient will al- 
most immediately experience its good ef- 
fects, and the most obstinate cases will be 
cured in three or four months. Tested. — 
The juice of the ripe berries may be pre- 
pnred in the same way. 

Superior Paiut— for Bbick Houses.— 
To lime whitewash, add for a fastener, sul- 
phate of zinc, and shade with any color you 
choose, ae yellow ochre, Venetian red, etc. 
It outlasts oil paint. 



FsLOKB.— Stir 1 oz. of Venice turpentine 
with }i tea-spoonful of water, till It looks 
like candied honey, and apply by spreading 
upon cloth and wrapping around the finger. 
If not too long delayed will cure in 6 hours. 

A poke root poultice is also said to be a 
sure remedy. 

Watbr-Proof Blackinq and Habnbsb 
Polish. — Take two and a half ounces gum 
shellac and half a pint of alcohol, and set 
in a warm place until dissolved ; then add 
two and a half ounces Venice turpentine

It will give a goodpoIiBn over oil or grease. 

MoB<jmT08.— To get rid of these tormen- 
tors, take a few hot coals on a shovel, or a 
chafing dish, and burn upon them some 
brown sugar in your bed-rooms and parlors,- 
and you effectually banish or destroy every 
mosquito for the night. 

Cheap Outsede Paint.— Take two parts 
(in bulk) ofwater lime ground fine, onepart 
(in bulk) of white lead gronnd in oil. Mix 
them thoroughly, by adding best boiled lin- 
seed oll,enough to prepare it to pass through 
a paint mill, after which temper with oil 
tin it can be applied with a common paint 
brush. Make any color to suit. It will last 
three times as long as lead paint, and cost 
not one-fourth as much. It is Superior. 

Curb for a Couoh.- A strong decoction 
of the leaves of the pine, sweetened with 
loaf sugar. Take a wine-glass warm on go- 
ing to bed, and half an hour before eating 
three times a day. The above is sold as a 
congh syrup, and is doing wonderlhl cores, 
and it is sold at a great profit to the manu- 
facturers. 



HoHr to Judge a ICorse. 

A correspondent, contrary to old maxims, 
undertakes to judge the ctiaracter of a horse 
by outward appearances, and offers the fol- 
lowing suggestions, the result of his close 
observation and long experience: 

If the color be light sorrell, or chestnut, 
his feet, legs and face white, these are 
marks of kindness. If he is broad and full 
between the eyes, he may be depended on 
ae a horse of good sense, and capable of be- 
ing trained to anything. 

As respects such horses, the more kindly 
you treat them the better you will be treat- 
ed in return. Nor will a horse of this de- 
scription stand a whip, if well fed. 

If you want a safe horse, avoid one that 
is dish-faced. He may be so far gentle as 
not to scare ; bat he will have too much go- 
ahead in him to be safe with everybody. 

If yon want a fool, but a horse of great 
bottom, get a deep bay, with not a white 
hair about him. u hie bee is a little dish- 
ed, so much the worse. Let no man ride 
Buch a horse that Is not an adept in riding 
—they are always tricky and unsafe. 



If you want one that will never give out, 
never buy a large, overgrown one. 

A black horse cannot stand heat, nor a 
white one cold. 

If you want a gentle horse, get one with 
more or less white about the head; the 
more the better. Many persons suppose 
the parti-colored horses belonging to the 
circuses, shows, &c., are selected for their 
oddity. But the selections thus made are 
on account of their great docility and gen- 
tleness. 



measnremeot of Hay In tbe 

Mow or Stack,— It Is often desirable, 
where conveniences for weighing are not at 
hand, to purciiase and sell hay by measure- 
ment. It is evident that no fixed rule will 
answer in all cases, as it would require 
more cubic feet at the top of a mow than at 
the bottom. The general role adopted by 
those who have tested It, is that a cube, 
each side of wblch shall meaBore eight feet, 
of mm TimotihT bajr, as taken fi:om mow or 
bottom of stack will weigh a ton. Tlie 
rule may be varied for upper part of mow 
or stack according to pressure.

ALBANY COXmTT. 63 



ALBANY COUNTY. 



THIS COUNTY v&s formed Nov. 1, 1683, and confirmed 
Oct. 1, 1691. It was one of the original counties and embraced 
the " Manor of Eensselaerwyck, Schenectady, and all the vil- 
lages, neighborhoods and Christian plantations orrthe east side 
of Hudson's Eiver from Eoeliffe Jansen's Creek ; and on the 
west side from Sawyer's Creek to the outermost end of Saragh- 
toga." The Manor of Livingston was annexed to Dutchess 
County, May 37, 1717, and by subsequent statutes, the County 
of Albany was also made to comprise all that part of the Colony 
of New York north and west of its present limits, and at one 
time the whole of the present State of New York. Tryon and 
Charlotte Counties, embracing the present Counties of Mont- 
gomery, Fulton and Washington, were taken off in 1773, Co- 
lumbia in 1786, Eensselaer and Saratoga in 1791, a part of 
Schoharie in 1795, a part of Greene in 1800, and Schenectady 
in 1809. The Manor of Eensselaerwyck was erected into a dis- 
trict March 34, 1773, and subdivided into east and west dis- 
tricts soon after the Eevolution. The Countjr lies upon the 
west bank of Hudson Eiver, about 150 miles from its mouth, 
and contains an area of 544 square miles. The surface is undu- 
lating and hilly with a general inclination to the south-east. 
A narrow interval extends along the river, bounded by a series 
of steep bluffs from 100 to 180 feet high, from the summits of 
which the surface stretches out in an undulating and slightlj 
ascending plateau to the foot of the Helderbergh Hills, where it 
reaches a hight of 400 feet above tide. This range of hills rises 
from 400 to 800 feet above the plateau, and 800 to 1300 above 
tide. Their declivities are very steep and sometimes precipi- 
tous, on the east, but slope more gradually towards the west. 
Several other ranges of hills, inferior to them in hight, extend 
in a northerly and southerly direction through the County. 
The highest point in the County is the summit of the Helder- 
berghs, in the north-east corner of the town of Berne, and is 
1300 feet above tide. All these ranges are outlying spurs of the 
Catskills, which are a northerly continuation of the Alleghany 
Mountains and a part of the great Appalachian eystelm. 



64 ALBANY COUNTY. 



The geological formations of this County belong to the Upper 
Silurian system, and comprise nearly all the rocks of the " New 
York System," from the Utica slate to the corniferous limestone. 
Above the rocks, in the east part of the County, are deposits of 
drift, consisting of sand, gravel and clay; and along the river 
intervals are rich alluvial deposits. The lowest rock is the 
Utica slate, cropping out on the Hudson, Norman's Kil and 
Mohawk, Above this are the graywacke and shales of the Hud- 
son River group, which appear in the valleys of all the streams 
which flow into the Hudson, and apparently underlie the entire 
eastern part of the County. This stone is extensively quarried 
for flagging and building purposes. The red rocks which form 
the base of the Helderberghs probably belong to the Medina 
sandstone series, though they have sometimes been confounded 
with the red shales of the Onondaga salt group. Next in order 
above this, and forming the first terrace of the mountains, is the 
water lime group, from 50 to 200 feet in thickness, and furnish- 
ing both water and quicklime. Next in order is the pentamerus 
limestone, 50 feet in thickness, and consisting of impure gray 
and black limestone, mixed with slate and shale. Overlying 
this is the Catskill limestone, from 50 to 180 feet in thickness, 
consisting of thick compact masses of limestone, alternating 
with thin layers of shale. It is quarried for building stone and 
lime. The Oriskany sands.tone next appears in a stratum only 
two feet in thickness, followed by the cauda-galli grit, from 50 
to 60 feet in thickness. This last has a fine grit and resembles 
black or gray slates, but is easily disintegrated and crumbles 
upon exposure to the air. The Onondaga and corniferous lime- 
stones next appear, the latter forming the summits of the moun- 
tains. These rocks furnish excellent building stone and a su- 
perior quality of lime. The surface of the eastern part of the 
County is covered with immense beds of clay, gravel and sand. 
The highlands west of the City of Albany are covered to the 
depth of forty feet with sand, which rests upon a bed of clay, 
estimated to be one hundred feet deep. In this drift are found 
small beds of bog ore and numerous chalybeate and sulphuretted 
springs. In the limestone regions are numerous caves, sink 
holes, and subtprranean water courses, forming a peculiar and 
interesting feature of the County. 

The principal streams are the Hudson River, which forms the 
eastern boundary; the Mohawk, forming a part of the north 
boundary ; Patroon Creek, Norman's Kil, Vlamans, Coeymans, 
Haanakrois and Catskill Creeks, and their branches. Most of 
the streams which flow into the Hudson have worn deep guUeys 
in the sand and clay. Some of these gorges are a hundred feet 
deep and extend from one-fourth of a mile to a mile from the 



ALBANY COUNTY. QQ 



riT«r. In the western part of the County the streams generally 
flow through narrow rocky ravines, bordered by steep banks. 
These streams are for the most part very rapid and subject to 
extremes of flood and drouth, rising rapidly during a rain of a 
few hours, and as suddenly falling. There are several small 
lakes among the hills, but they are of little importance. The 
soil upon the intervals is a deep rich alluvial loam. In Water- 
vliet, Albany, and the eastern parts of Guilderland and Bethle- 
hem, it consists of almost pure sand, with strips of clay along 
the banks of the streams. The belt of land lying between the 
sandy region and the foot of the Helderberghs is principally a 
clayey and gravelly loam, and is very productive. Upon the 
Helderberghs the soil consists of alternate layers of clay, slate^ 
and gravel, generally with a subsoil of tenacious clay or hard- 
pan. Some portions are stony and other portions are wet, cold 
and only moderately productive. The principal timber is pitch 
pine, oak and chestnut, growing upon the sandy region. In 
some parts these trees are mere dwarfs, the region being very 
barren and unproductive. A limited amount of red cedar 
grows in the south-east comer of the County. West of the 
sandy tract are found the usual trees of this latitude, including 
the deciduous and evergreen. 

The principal occupation of the people in the farming dis- 
tricts is raising hay, spring grains, dairying, stock raising and 
gardening for the Troy and Albany markets. Manufacturing 
of various kinds is extensively carried on in Albany, West Troy 
and Cohoes, each of which places has also considerable com- 
merce. 

The City of Albany is the County Seat and the State Capital. 
The Court House is an elegant structure faced with Sing Sing 
marble and erected at the joint expense of the City and County. 
It contains the principal County and City offices. The build- 
ing is 109 feet front and 80 deep. It has in front a recessed 
porch supported by six Ionic columns. The Jail is a commo- 
dious brick structure, located on Maiden Lane, in rear of the 
Court House. 

The Albany County Penitentiary is a fine structure, located in 
the western part of the City, on a site embracing about fifteen 
acres. Its erection was commenced in 1845 and was so far 
completed as to be opened for prisoners in April, 1846. It was 
constructed under the supervision of Mr. Amos Pilsbury, who 
has been its efficient Superintendent until the present time, 
with the exception of a few months in 1858. The main build- 
ing fronts the east and consists of a center and two wings, mak- 
ing the entire front four hundred feet. The center building is 
occupied as the residence of the Superintendent, his family and

the subordinate oflScers. The rear of the second story is occu- 
pied as a hospital, and the third story as a chapel. The chapel 
is 76 feet by 48, finely arranged, with a gallery, and capable of 
seating 600 persons. It is one of the finest prison chapels in the 
United States. The south wing contains the cells of the male 
prisoners, arranged in four tiers, one above the other, in the cen- 
ter of the wing, making, with the recent additions, 256 in all. 
The cells are each seven feet by four, and seven feet high, fur- 
nished with an iron bedstead which cam be turned up against 
the wall during the day. The doors are of iron rods, allowing 
nearly as much light and air when shut as when open. Each 
cell has a distinct ventilator. The north wing is occupied by 
the female prisoners and contains eighty-eight cells, besides a 
large, pleasant workshop. The workshop and outbuildings of 
the institution are commodious and all surrounded by a sub- 
stantial wall. There is a library of over one thousand volumes 
to which the prisoners have access. Since 1851 there has been 
but one year during Which the Penitentiary has not been self- 
sustaining, the aggregate income over the ordinary exjjenditures 
being over $140,000. Convicts from the District of Columbia, 
from the United States Courts, and from many of the eastern 
counties of the State, are received here. 

The whole number of convicts from 1849 to 1869 was. . .19,431 

Number of males, 14,436 

Number of females, 4,995 

Of this number 2,510 claim to be temperate while 16,911 
were intemperate. 

The convicts of native birth were 8,116 

The convicts of foreign birth, 11,305 

The number who could not read was 6,007 

The number who could read only, 4,489 

The number who could read and write, 8^925 

The whole number of commitments during the year end- 
ing Oct. 31, 1869, was 1,029 

The average monthly number of inmates, 355 

The number of natives, 494 

The number of foreigners, 535 

The number who were temperate, 165 

The number who were intemperate, . 864 

Income over expenditures for the year, $10,153.83 

Everything in and around the Penitentiary is kept in the best 
of order. The convicts are chiefly engaged in making shoes and 
bottoming chairs. The following Resolution, passed by the 
Board, will give an idea of the estimation in which the Superin- 
tendent is held : 



ALBA2J7 COUNTY. 67 



" Resolved, That Gen. Pilsbury is not only entitled to the approbation of 
onr tamedlate constituency, for the prudent and skillful management by 
•which he has so long conducted the affairs of the Penitentiary, as to en- 
tirely relieve the County of Albany from any taxation for the board and 
safe keeping of criminals and vagrants ; but he also merits the gratitude of 
the whole people of this State for having practically demonstrated, that 
under bis excellent management, large bodies of convicts can be strictly 
discipUncil, safely guarded, humanely treated and properly managed and 
cared for in all respects, without cruel or unusual punishment, and without 
imposing any burden upon the public treasury." 

The ordinary expenses for the last year were $39,301.28 

The income for the same time, 49,455.11 

Leaving a balance for the year of 10,153.83 

The Alms House is located near the Penitentiary, on a farm of 
104 acres. The whole number of inmates is 480, of whom 114 
were in the Insane Asylum. 

The principal public works of the County are the Erie Canal, 
■which opens into a basin at Albany and communicates with 
the Hudson at West Troy; the Champlain Canal connects 
with the Erie and with the Hudson Kiver at West Troy; it 
crosses the Mohawk in a basin produced by a dam below the 
Cohocs Palls. The Erie Canal crosses the Mohawk upon a 
stone aqueduct above the Falls. The New York Central Rail- 
road and the Eensselaer and Saratoga Eailroad terminate at 
Albany; the Albany and Susquehanna Eailroad extends south- 
west through the County to Binghamton; the Hudson Eiver, 
Boston and Albany, Harlem, and Troy and Greenbush Eail- 
roads are connected with Albany by a bridge across the Hudson. 
A pier about one and one-fourth miles long has been con- 
structed in front of Albany, opening into the river at both 
ends. It is also divided for the accommodation of the ferries, 
and contains elevators and warehouses for transportation pur- 
poses. The basin inclosed within the pier affords a secure har- 
bor during the winter for vessels and canal boats. Several 
bridges connect the pier with the City. 

Henry Hudson is supposed to have ascended the river as far 
as the present site of Albany, in 1607. He commenced the 
memorable voyage on the 12th of September, and having pro- 
ceeded two leagues, came to anchor. Here twenty-eight canoes, 
full of men, women and children, came from the shore, bring- 
ing oysters and beans, and having "great tobacco pipes of yel- 
low copper and pots of earth to dresse their meate in." The 
next day the Indians " brought a great store of very good oysters 
aboord, which wee bought for trifles." The river contained 
great numbers of salmon and other fish, which the sailors 
caught. On the 16th the natives " came aboord and brought 
us eares of Indian Come, Pompions and Tobacco, which wee 
bought for trifles." " On the 19th the natives again came on

boord bringing grapes, pompions, beaver skins and other skins, 
which were exchanged for beads, knives and hatchets." " The 
one and twentieth day was faire weather and the wind all 
southerly, we determined yet once more to goe farther up into 
the Kiver to trie what depth and breadth it did beare, but much 
people resorted aboord so we went not this day. Our carpenter 
went on land and made a foreyard. And our Master and his 
Mate determined to trie some of the chiefe men of the conn- 
trey, whether they had any treacherie in them. So they took 
them down in the cabbin and gave them so much wine and 
aqua vitae that they were all merrie, and one of them had hig 
wife with him, which sat so modestly, as any of our countrey 
women would do in a strange place. In the end one of them 
was drunke, which had been aboord of our ship all the time 
that we had been there, and that was strange to them, for they 
could not tell how to take it. The canoes and folke went all on* 
shore, but some of them came againe and brought stropes of 
beads, some had six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and gave him. So 
he slept all night quietly. The two and twentieth was faire 
weather. In the morning our Master's Mate and four more of 
the companie went up with our Boat to sound the River higher 
up. The people of the countrey came not aboord till noone, 
but when they came and" saw the savages well, they were glad. 
So at three of the clocke in the afternoon they came aboord 
and brought Tobacco and more Beades, and gave them to our 
Master, and made an Oration and showed him all the countrey 
round about. Then they sent one of their companie on land, 
who presently returned and brought a great Platter full of 
Venison, dressed for themselves, and they caused him to eat 
with them ; then they made reverence and departed all save 
the old man that lay aboord. This night at ten of the clocke, 
our Boat returned in a shower of raine from soundiag of the 
River, and found it to bee at an end for shipping to goe in. 
For they had been up eight or nine leagues and but seven foot 
water and unconstant soundings." The next day they began 
their voyage down the river and arrived at its mouth October 
4th. The diary of their voyage is published in the Transac- 
tions of the New York Historical Society, from which the 
above extracts were taken. 

. Soon after this voyage of Hudson, a number of adventurers 
followed in his track and pursued a small trade with the In- 
dians. The most noted of these adventurers were Adrian 
Block, Hendrick Corstiaensen and Cornelius Jacobsen Mey, in 
the year 1614. Intelligence of the discoveries made by Block 
and his associates having been transmitted to Holland in the 
fall of 1814, measures were immediately taken to secure for 



ALBANY COUNTY. 69 



themselves the exclnsive trade of the countries thus explored, 
which was guaranteed to them by the ordinance of March 27th. 
A special grant was made to " Gerrit Witsen, former burgo- 
master of the city of Amsterdam, Jonas Witsen and Simon 
Mastersen, owners of the ship called the Little Fox, Captain 
Jarnde Witt, master ; Hans Hongers, Paul Pelgrom and Lam- 
brect Van Tweenhuysen, owners of the two snips called the 
Tiger and the Fortune, Captains Adrian Block and Hendrick 
Corstiaensen, masters ; Arnoudt Van Lybergen, Wessel Schenck, 
Hans Claessen and Barens Sweetsen, owners of the ship, the 
Nightingale, Captain Thugs Volckertsen, merchant in the city 
of Amsterdam, master ; and Pieter Olementsen Brouwer, Jan 
Clementsen Kies and Cornells Volkertsen, merchants in the city 
of Hoorn, owners of the ship the Fortune, Captain Cornells 
Jacobsen Mey, master," who had united into a company for 
these purposes, "that they shall be permitted exclusively to 
visit and navigate the above described lands situate in America, 
between New France and Virginia, the sea coasts of which lie 
between the 40th and 45th degrees of latitude and which are 
now named New Netherland, as it is to be seen on the figurative 
maps by them prepared; and to navigate or cause to be navi- 
gated the same for four voyages within a period of three years, 
to commence from the first day of January 1615 or sooner, with- 
out it being permitted, directly or indirectly, to any one else to 
sail, to frequent or navigate out of the New Netherlands, those 
newly discovered lands, havens or places within the space of 
three years as above, on penalty of the confiscation of the vessel 
and cargo, besides a fine of fifty thousand Netherlands ducats 
for the benefit of said discoverers." Having obtained these ex- 
clusive privileges they assumed the name of "The United New 
Netherland Company," and proceeded to make arrangements to 
draw the largest returns from their new possessions. They took 
possession of a small island a short distance below the present 
City of Albany and erected a trading house 36 by 26 feet. 
Around this they erected a stockade fifty feet square, which was 
next encircled by a ditch eighteen feet wide, the whole defended 
by two pieces of cannon and eleven stone guns, mounted on 
swivels and garrisoned by ten or twelve men. This post was 
commanded oy Jacob Jacobz Elkens who continued here four 
years. In the spring of 1618 a freshet injured the Company's 
works on the island to such an extent that they were abandoned, 
and another fort was built a short distance south, on the Nor- 
dlan's Kil. In 1623 the West India Company erected a fort on 
the west bank of the river, near the present steamboat landing, 
and named it " Fort Orange." 



70 ALBANY COTTNTT. 



In 1629 a charter of privileges and exemptions was passed for 
the encouragement of patroons to settle colonies, and in the 
following year several wealthy and influential directors of the 
Dutch West India Company availed themselves of its advan- 
tages. Among these were feillian Van Eensselaer, a pearl mer- 
chant of Amsterdam. Having purchased of the Indians' the 
title to the land, he received a grant of about twenty-four miles 
from north to south, and forty-eight from east to west, lying on 
both sides of the river, north and south of Fort Orange, em- 
bracing most of the counties of Albany and Rensselaer* The 
charter gave him privileges similar to those enjoyed by the feu- 
dal barons of Europe. By the terms of- the grant the Coli.ny 
must contain at least fifty persons over fifteen years of age, 
within four years, one-fourth of whom must be located within 
the first year. In the spring of 1630 a number of colonists with 
their families sailed from Texel, and on their arrival at Fort 
Orange were furnished with comfortable farm houses, stock, 
seeds and farming utensils. The land was leased at an annual 
rent payable in grain, beeves and wampum, or a share of the 
products. The proprietor received the title of Patroon and was 
invested with authority to administer justice either in person 
or by deputy, to appoint local ofiicers and magistrates, to erect 
courts and take cognisance of all crimes committed within the 
Colony. He was allowed to keep a gallows for the execution of 
criminals, but if it fell during an execution, another could only 
be erected for another criminal. In matters aflFecting life or 
limb, and where the amount in dispute was more than twenty 
dollars, the charter allowed the right of an appeal from the local 
courts to the Director General and Council at Fort Amsterdam, 
but the local authorities required of all settlers a promise never 
to avail themselves of this privilege. As already intimated, 
farms were located in the vicinity of Fort Orange, and every fa- 
cility offered for the establishment of colonists. At the close 
of harvest every farmer was required to report the amount of 
grain he had for sale, and if the agents of the Patroon did not 
wish to purchase it, he was at liberty to sell it elsewhere. The 
same rule prevailed respecting cattle. The Patroon was required 
to erect and keep in repair a mill, and the settlers in turn were 
required to take their corn thete for grinding. No person was 
allowed to hunt or fish within the limits of the Colony without 
a license, and if any real estate was for sale it must first be offered 
to the Patroon, and in case a person died intestate his property 
reverted to the "lord of the manor." The Colony gradually in- 
creased, and in a few years quite a hamlet arose in the vicinity 
of Fort Orange, called the Fuyck or Beversfuyck, and after- 
wards for many years Beverswyck, by which name the City of 



ALBJlNT COUNTY. 71 



Albany was called until 1664. One of the most important aims 
of the founders of Rensselaerwyck was to secure the trade in 
furs with the Indians. To accomplish this all foreign and un- 
licensed traders were excluded. The Patroon and his partners 
were the only privileged importers of European merchandise, 
and the settlers were bound under oath not to purchase any 
peltries from the Indians without bein^ duly licensed. Many 
of the settlers subsequently obtained license to engage in this 
trade, but all furs must be brought to the Patroon's magazine 
to be sent over to Holland to him, he retaining halfof the profits 
as his share. A change was subsequently made so that the Pa- 
troon received only the sixth beaver, and one guilder on each of 
the remaining five-sixths. This system produced competition, 
and the price of peltries increased nearly one hundred per cent. 
About the year 1640, th« inhabitants of Kensselaerwyck, per- 
ceiving the avidity of the Mohawks for fire-arms, and that they 
willingly paid twenty beavers for a musket and twelve guilders 
for a pound of powder, desired to share in so profitable a trade. 
The consequence was that large quantities of the munitions of 
war were furnished them, thus enabling them to become a terror 
to all surrounding tribes. 

The winter of 1645-6 was unusually long and severe. The 
Hudson River closed the 24th of November, and remained 
frozen about four months. A very high freshet occurred in the 
spring, causing considerable damage. Among the remarkable 
occurrences mentioned in the annals of the " old Colonie " at 
this time, was the appearance in the river of "A certain fisli of 
considerable size, snow-white in color, round in the boQy, and 
blowing water out of its head. "What it portended, 'God the 
■Lord only knew,' for "at the same instant that this fish ap- 
peared to us we had the first thunder and lightning this year." 
Scarcely had the public astonishment subsided when another 
monster of the deep, forty feet in length, and of a brown color, 
with fins in his back, and ejecting water like the other, came up 
the river. Some seafaring people at length pronounced the ani- 
mal a whale. It shortly after grounded on an island at the 
mouth of the Mohawk, and the people turned out in great 
numbers to secure so valuable a prize. Though a large amount 
of oil was obtained, the river was covered with grease for three 
weeks, and the air was infected with the smell of the decaying 
animal for several miles around. Several other whales 
grounded in the river further down, during the same season. 

Mills, propelled by wind or water, were erected in various 
places to grind corn and saw lumber. A mill run by horse 
power was erected in 1646, of which the following is a contract, 
dated Jan. 31 : 



72 ALBANY COUNTY. 



" The mill situate on Fifth Kil being to the great damage of 
the Patroon and inhabitants of the Colonie for a considerable 
time out of repair, or unfit to be worked, either b^ the break- 
ing of the dam, the seyerity of the winter, or the high water or 
otherwise ; besides being out of the way, to the prejudice of 
the inhabitants in going and returning, a contract, after being 
duly proposed to the Court, is therefore made with Pieter Cor- 
nehssen to build a horse mill in the Pine Grove, whereby not 
only the Colonie but also, if so be, the navigators who come 
hither may be encouraged to provide themselves with other 
things. Pieter Cornelissen shall complete the work for fl.300 
($120,) I furnishing him fl.200 in stones, two good horses, the 
expense of which is to be divided between us, half and half. 
The standing work, plank, labor and other expenses we shall 
defray in common, bearing, each equ^ profit and loss. On the 
completion of the mill, and on its being ready to go, Pieter 
Cornelissen shall work one day for himself and the other day 
for the Patroon, and so forth, the Patroon paying him one Rix 
dollar for his day. Should it happen as we expect that so great 
a demand shall arise, so that the mill will not supply all the 
Colonie or strangers, then P. Cornelissen is alone authorized 
and privileged to erect in company with the Patroon, another 
such mill on these or such other conditions as are now, or shall 
hereafter be agreed on. Signed, 

" Anthony De Hooges, 
Pieter Cobnelissen." 

A mill worked by horses, formerly stood on the lot at the 
north-east corner of Hudson and Grand streets, in Albany. A 
mill also stood on the Eutten Kil in 1646. A brewery was 
erected in the same quarter previous to 16.37, with the exclusive 
right to supply retail dealers with beer. Private individuals 
were allowed the right to brew all that was required for their 
own use. 

The following sentence of banishment pronounced upon one 
of the colonists in 1644, will show how justice was administered 
at that early day. 

" By the "President and Council of the Colonie of Renaselaer- 
wyck: — Having heard the free confession of Adriaen Willem- 
sen at present in confinement, to-wit : That he on Saturday 
last, the 6th of August, at the house of the Patroon, where the 
Commissary-General, Arendt Van Curler resides, climbing in 
through the window of said house, stole seven beavers and at 
noon of the following Monday, eight beavers and one drieling, 
(third of a skin,) also that on Saturday aforesaid he had stolen 
from the cellar of said house a half skin which remained. 
And having moreover examined the demand of the prosecutor

thereto ; we have hereby ordered and adj udged, and do order 
and adjudge that the said delinquent snail be taken to the 
public place where justice is executed, and there be ignominious- 
ly tied to a post for the space of two hours, with some of the 
stolen property on his head; after which he shall prostrate 
himself at the feet of the Worshipful Magistrates and beg of 
God and justice for forgiveness, that he moreover shall be 
henceforward and forever banished out of this Colonie, and 
never more return thereto. Done in Collegio, this 13th day of 
August, anno 1644. Bv order of their Worships the President 
and Council of this Colonie of Reneselaerwyck.

By the surrender of the Colony to the English in 1664, the 
personal rights of the colonists were secured, and a new charter 
was granted to the Patroon, restricting his civil power but con- 
firming the relations between landlord and tenant. The feudal 
tenures were abolished in 1787. 

The leasehold tenures from an early period excited discontent 
among the tenants. The late Patroon had by his indigence 
secured their regard, and when he died, in 1837, there was con- 
siderable anxiety as to the course that would be pursued by his 
successor. In his Will he had given the east part of the Manor 
to his son, William P. Van Rensselaer, of New York, and the 
west part to his son Stephen. A committee of respectable 
citizens appointed by the tenants waited upon him to confer 
upon subjects of mutual interest, but they were treated with 
coldness and disdain. This did not serve to relieve their 
anxiety, and they began to consult together to devise some plan 
to throw off the burden which they had so long borne. Asso- 
ciations were formed and delegates appointed to meet and de- 
liberate for the general welfare. These local societies soon be- 
came known as Anti-rent Associations, and the feeling of 
opposition to the payment of the rent became so strong as to 
manifest itself in open resistance to the process of collection. 
A secret oreanization was formed extending through several 
counties, fi was composed of men who were pledged to appear 
in disguise, armed and ready to protect the tenants from arrest 
and guard their property from execution. Whenever the Sheriflf 
appeared in one of the disaffected towns, a troop of men in 
fantaetic calico dresses, with faces masked or painted to resem- 
ble Indians, armed with guns, pistols, swords, tomahawks &c., 
and generally on horseback, would gather around him or hover 
near and warn him by threats to desist from the service of any 
process. In 1844-5 large numbers of men were accustomed to 
meet in Albany and other counties, disguised, and listen to

speeches and pass resolutions. The leaders assumed the names 
of distinguished Indian chiefs, and the highways became 
familiar with their whoops and antics. Under such circum- 
stances a conflict between them and the authorities became in- 
evitable. In some instances the military were called out to aid 
in enforcing the law. Citizens who disapprored of their con- 
duct were subjected to insult in the streets and at their homes. 
Bad men, under coyer of the disguise, took occasion to gratify 
their passions and to seek redress for private grievances. A 
rude system of telegraphing existed in the towns, and gave 
warning of the approach of an officer, 'when from all parts dis- 
guised men came flocking in. In 1844 the Legislature passed 
a law imposing severe penalties upon persons who should 
appear in public armed and in disguise. The Anti-rent feeling 
at length manifested itself in political action, and in 1846 John 
Young, the candidate of the Anti-renters, was elected Governor 
over Silas Wright, the opposing candidate. The Constitution 
of 1846 abolished all feudal tenures and incidents, and pro- 
vided that no lease or grant of agricultural lands in which 
shall b^ryeserved any rent or service of any kind, shall be valid 
for a longer period than twelve years. Since that time a con- 
siderable portion of the leased land has been conveyed in fee. 

The following description of the Helderbergh Hills, is taken 
from an article written by Verplanck Colvin, and published in 
Harper's Magazine for October, 1869 : 

" The Helderberghs, a line of small mountains, form not the 
least of the mountain systems of New York. They are a long, 
angular range of solid blue limestone cliffs, running nearly east 
and west. 'Helderbergh' is a Dutch corruption of the old Ger- 
man Helk-berg, meaning 'Clear Mountain.' Though plainly 
visible, and but ten or fifteen miles from' the ancient City of 
Albany, few of its citizens appear even to know of their exist- 
ence, let alone their traditions and their beauties. The Susque- 
hanna Railroad trains, as they leave Albany crowded with tour- 
ists bound for Sharon Springs, the beauteous Susquehanna 
River Valley, or distant Pennsylvania, are forced to follow the 
wall-like precipices facing the Helderbergh aJmost along their 
whole extent, far to the north and west, before they are able to 
climb it. It is its romantic wooded rock scenery, dark caverns 
and sprayey waterfalls, its varied landscape and accessible moun- 
tain grandeur, that render the Helderbergh interesting to ar- 
tist, author, poet, tourist or rustioator. 

" Taking an early train on the Susquehanna Railroad, and- 
stopping at Guilderland Station, brings one within a mile of 
the Indian Ladder Gap. Even from that distance the moun- 
tain spurs are visible. A scarcely discernible zig-zag ascending 



ALBJLNT COUNTY. 75 



line, not unresembling a military siege-approach, shows the In- 
dian Ladder Road, crawling up the mountain and along and 
beneath the precipices. But you should not return without me- 
mentoes of your visit. Carry then a satchel, unless you have 
capacious pockets, for curiosities will meet yon on every side. 
Besides the fossil medals of creation — petrifactions and miner- 
als — the collector will find a thousand objects of interest. If 
he have keen eyes he may note some curious grafts, great hem- 
locks on huge pine trees, perhaps of Indian handicraft. Large 
slow worms, unknown lizards, insects, perhaps black snakes, 
toads and eels, mingled in strange confusion, swarm amidst the 
rocks. The place was once renowned for the multitude, size 
and venom of its rattlesnakes. The damp, thick woods of oak, 
hickory, red (slippery) elm, basswood (linden), butternut, ash, 
beech and birch, with white pine, hemlock, and some spruce, 
give color to the scenery, heightened by the green, graceful 
frondage of the scarlet-fruited sumac, the trailing cordage of 
the wild grapevines, and the numberless other rare wild plants, 
annuals, biennials, perennials, everywhere luxuriant. 

" What is this Indian Ladder, so often mentioned ? In 1710 
this Helderbergh region was a wilderness ; nay, all westward of 
the Hudson River settlements was unknown. Albany was a 
frontier town, a trading post, a place where annuities were paid 
and blankets exchanged with Indians for beaver pelts. From 
Albany over the sand-plains — Sehen-ec-ta-da (pine barrens) of 
the Indians — ^led an Indian trail westward. Straight as the 
wild bee or the crow, the wild Indian made his course from the 
white man's settlement to his own home in the beauteous Scho- 
harie Valley. The stern cliflfs of these hills opposed his pro- 
gress ; his hatchet fells a tree against them, the stumps of the 
branches which he trimmed away formed the rounds of the In- 
dian Ladder. That Indian trail, then, led up this valley, up 
yonder mountain slope, to a cave now known as the ' Tory 
House.' The cave gained that name during the Revolution. 
The trail ended in a corner of the cliffs where the precipice did 
not exceed 20 feet in hight. Here stood the tree — the old Lad- 
der. In 1820 this ancient ladder was yet in daily use. There 
are one or two yet living who have climbed it. Greater con- 
venience became necessary, and the road was constructed during 
the next summer. It followed the old trail up the mountain. 
The ladder was torn away and a passage through the cliffs 
blasted for the roadway. The rock-walled pass at the head of 
the road is where the Indian Ladder stood. 

" You have followed the rapid brook up the valley, through 
the shadowy woods, and have reached a littLe prairie — an open- 
ing surrounded almost on every side by the great mountain

slopes which rise grandly to the impregnable clififs walling the 
summits. This spot was known as the 'Tory Hook,' orPla^ 
and in days gone by was their rendezvous — a lone, aequesterefl 
glade of the savage forest. Above you, in front, and to right 
and left, is a colossal natural amphitheater, the long, wooded 
slopes rising tier on tier to the base of the circling precipices. 
Two rocky gorges, which ascend like the diverging aisles of an 
amphiteater, part the wilderness of green. Towering above the 
uppermost tree-tops are the gray, battlement-like cliffs. Many 
a dark opening, gloomy recess, and inaccessible ledge can lie 
seen which human foot has never trod; once, probably, the 
pathway and home of that blood-thirsty savage, the nimble and 
stealthy footed cougar. Two lofty waterfalls stream down, milk 
white, from the cliff-top at the head of each dry, rock-filled 
gorge. Your way lies to the right, up the gorge, to the smaller 
of the two falls. Following the stream and entering the oppo- 
site woods you commence the ascent of the gorge. At len^h 
you reach what may be termed the foot of the gorge. The 
stream rushes down m a number of little cascades — above it is 
lost amidst the huge rocks. From the brink of the dark cliff 
drops a spray-white stream, about eighty feet, unbroken. Lost 
for a moment to sight, it issues from a rocky basin, and ripples 
down in two streams brightly over a series of little stone steps. 
Suddenly the smooth descent ceases; the rock drops perpen- 
dicularly fifteen or eighteen feet. Down the face of this wall 
dash two little cascades ; they fall upon another series of the 
miniature rock steps, and, glittering and shining like a magic 
stream of crystal, hurry down to lose their waters among the 
huge rocks of the gorge ; lost for a thousand feet of that dread 
montain slope ere coming forth to light again as the stream in 
the valley below. At last beneath the precipice you stand in the 
cool shadow of the dark-dripping rocks, at the foot of- the falls, 
the top of the gorge. This is the Small Fall, sometimes called 
the ' Dry Falls.' The latter name you will hardly appreciate 
should you visit it when swollen by recent rains. Below (and 
on the cliffs above) this fall is one of the best localities for Hel- 
derbergh fossils or petrifactions. Among these fossil shells of 
ancient seas are many peculiar to the Helderberghs. 

"When, years ago, Lyell, in his geological travels, visited 
these hills, he was struck with amazement. It seemed a new, a 
forgotten world. There is a stratum of the cliff rock, some- 
times fifty feet in thickness, entirely composed of one variety 
of fossil shell — the Pentamerus galeatut — the shells massed to- , 
gether in a way astounding. This, once the shell-oovered bed 
of an ocean, is now a portion of a mountain cliff. It is this 
that gives such interest to Helderbergh precipices, more than 



ALBANY COUNTY. 77 



to basalt palisades, or even dread Wall-Face of the Adirondacks. 

" Along beneath the oliflfs runs a narrow path. The debris 
of the mountain drops on one side (a steep wooded slope) ; on 
the other the overhan^ng precipice forms a walL Westward, this 
path leads to the Indian Ladder road ; and, going that way, you 
pass a curious spring. At the base of the cliflf is a dark open- 
ing, about three feet high by six or eight in width, narrowing 
inward. From the dark interior of the cliff a clear, sparkling 
stream issues, constant summer and winter. 

" Eastward the path leads to the 'Big,' 'Mine Lot,' or 'Indian 
Ladder Falls.' Suddenly you turn a corner of the cliff and 
pause in admiration of the scene before you. From the edge 
of the overhanging precipice, more than an hundred feet above 
your head, streams down a silvery rope of spray, with a whis- 
pering rush, sweeping before it damp, chilly edidies of fugitive 
air, that sway the waterv cable to and fro. Back beneath the 
rocky shelf, from off which the fall precipitates its unceasing 
stream, is a black, cavernous semi-circle of rock, its gloomy 
darkness in deep contrast with the snow-white fall. Below, to 
the left, the woods are swept away to the base of the mountains, 
and in their place a wild and desolate descent of broken rocks 
falls sharply — rendered more savage to the eye by the shattered 
trunks of dead trees mingled. Back of the fall, at the base of 
the precipice, is a low, horizontal cavity in the rock, from four 
to SIX feet in hight, fifty or sixty feet in length, by fifteen feet 
in depth. Stooping and clambering in over a low heap of rub- 
bish — probably the old waste of the mine — jou enter. Mine, 
strictly, there is none ; but the marks of mining implements 
and the excavation show that operations of some kind have 
been carried on. Here is a massive vein of iron pyrites (bi- 
sulphide of iron), fine-grained and solid, and well suited for 
sulphuric acid manufacture. The bed or vein of pyrites has 
evidently been much thicker, but it has decomposed, a yellow 
oxyd of iron and sulphate of lime (gypsum) resulting. Long 
years ago wild stories were told about this mine and its workers ; 
of two strange, taciturn, foreign men who frequented the spot, 
who kept their mouths shut, and minded their own business in 
a way astonishing and irritating to the counti-y people around. 
Nay, more incomprehensible, they lived there beneath those 
silent rocks, and often in dark nights, strange lights were seen 
flashing and moving among the dangerous precipices — wild, 
heathenish shouts and noises heard among the cavernous re- 
cesses of the cliffs. At times, in the misty haze of early morn- 
ing, they had been met upon the road with heavy packs upon 
their sturdy shoulders, wending their way toward some mart, 
and all who saw them, muttered 'a good riddance.' But sud- 



78 ALBANY COUNTY. 

denly some night-lights would again be seen flashing far above 
the farm-houses, among the gloomy, night-hidden rocks. At 
length they vanieied, never to return. The object of their 
labors is unknown, the ruinous remains of a stone structure 
resembling a vat, said to be of their construction, yet exists. It 
is called 'The Leach.' The mine is known as the 'Bed Paint 
Mine,' and it is asserted that the miners were engaged in the 
manufacture of a red paint froi^ the yellow, ochery oxyd of 
iron there existing. How they managed it seems now among 
the lost arts. 

" You may reach the clifi" top from here by gtiing further east, 
where the precipices decrease in hight. Search till you find the 
ascent to a naiTow ledge that leads to a square embrasure-like 
break in the cliflf j it seems as though a huge block, twenty feet 
square, had been quarried out. In one corner you will discover 
the crumbling fragments of a tree-ladder; it cannot exceed 
twenty-five feet to the summit. Ascend and you wiU have an 
idea of the Indian Ladder. Westward now, along the cliflf-tops, 
back towards the falls again, and the Indian Ladder road. "You 
reach the stream which forms the Big or Mine Lot Fall, and, 
stepping through "the bushes which obscure your view, stand 
upon the verge of the precipice. To your left, from the lowest 
ledge below, the fall leaps the cliflf brink, and pours in a steady 
stream. 

"It is grand, thus yeclining on the cliff brink, to view the^ 
wide spread landscape to the north of the mouiitains — the joint 
basin of the Hudson and the Mohawk — a deep valley, more than 
sixty miles in width. From here you see a wide-spread level 
country, a true ba,8in, hounded by distant mountain chains. 
You see nearest, the deep savage valley, with shades predomi- 
nating, mountain w*lled ; the checkered fields and woods be- 
yond, in vast perspective : the distant white ferm houses and 
the red barns, and half forest-hidden steeple of the village 
church — aU vajiishing in ha,zy distance; last, tihe blue, rugged 
outline of the northern grp,nite mountains, a bright sky, flecked 
with feathery cirro-ouniuli, ever changing, lit wi3i a rich, warm, 
mellow North American sun-light, brighter than which cannot 
shine either in Italy or on South Sea palm groves. 

" The cliflf measured by cord and plummet, is here about 126 
feet in hight ; that of the waterfall may be estimated at 116 
feet. Amidst titie busiies hack from lie falls is a deep, narrow 
crevice. A stone dropped in rattles and clatters and hops till 
lost to hearing. To what gloomy cav«m is this the sky-light ? 
Such crevices account for the numerous spring? at the cliflf 
base. The rock must be ramified with caverns. 



ALBANY COUNTY. 79 



" Leaving the fall, westward again, along the cliff tops, brings 
you to the Small Fall and a road; following this you come out 
upon another road. Look to your right ; that deep, angular 
cut through the rock is the Pass, the head of the Indian Lad- 
der road. Descend the defile ; you are below the cliffs again, in 
gloomy shadow. Here stood the Indian Ladder. As you de- 
scend the road the cliffs increase in hight, and the Dome, a 
mantle-piece-like projection, fairly overhangs and threatens it. 
Climb the debris beneath the Dome and you will find a path. 
Follow it. It leads to a cave, the resort of Tories and Indians 
during the Kevolution. 

" The 'Tory House' is a large circular or semi-circular cavity 
in the cliff, just above the road, a good view of which it com- 
mands. It is a single room, perhaps twenty-five or thirty feet 
in diameter, open on one side. Here Jacob Salisbury, a noto- 
rious royalist spy, is said to have been captured, about the tinae 
that Burgoyne was marching his army towards the now hietoric 
plains of Saratoga. 

"Within thirty miles of the Indian Ladder, one may count 
twenty caverns, large and small. Sutphen's Cave, near the In- 
dian Ladder, is reached by descending a narrow crevice through 
the rock, to a ledge a few inches wide. Along ttiis you crawl, 
the cliff above and below you. Reaching a chill recess, beneath 
overhanging cliffs, you are at the cave entrance. A short dis- 
tance in, after wading at one place knee-deep, icy cold, the cave 
becomes spacious, and you reach a deep, clear body of water. 
One of these savage, rock-filled gorges descends from this cave's 
mouth, down the water-worn mountain slope; Westward, 
among the cliffs, above the village of Knowersville, is Livings- 
ton's Cave, a small, dry and romantic cavern. 

" At Clarksviile, twelve miles from Albany, are more caves. 
Two of these are well known ; ttie entrance of one is in the 
back-yard of one of the village houses. The subterranean 
river is the house well ; a pair of steps lead down into a crevice 
in the rock. They have no other waier. For drinking it is 
unsurpassed. This same river bursts forth near by, in the bed 
of the Oniskethau, and aide that stream to run a eav^mill. 
Chaff thrown upon the river in the cave is soon found fl.oa;ting 
on the mill pond. 

" These two caves are said to be respectively one-eighth and 
one-half a mile in length. They should not be called two 
caves, however, for the 'river* seems to flow from one to the 
other. The smaller cave is dry and airy, and has some spacious 
corridors. Squeezing your way down throu^ the narrow 
entrance, you reach a sort of room, faintly lit with the few 
white rays of daylight which glimmer down through the 



80 ALBANY COUNTY. 



entrance. You light your lanterns, and the red flame guides 
your footsteps. A short way through a narrow passage andyou 
ascend into a lofty chamber — the 'Room of the Galleiy.' That 
dark hole plunging downward to the right is the continuation 
of the cave; descend and turn in at and climb the first side 
passage to your left, and you will reach the 'Gallery.' There 
are other large rooms and corridors in this cave, but there are 
few stalactites or stalagmites, if any. A singular feature of 
the cave are the water-worn pot-holes in the rock ceiling. 
Every one knows that rational, common-sense brooks or rivers 
of the surface world, make them according to law of gravita- 
tion, in their water-worn beds. Here natural laws seem laugh- 
ed to scorn ; and these pot-holes, as though from very per- 
verseness, are set inverted in the roof. They were formed un- 
doubtedly when the cave was filled with water, whirling and 
rushing against the roof. A narrow passage leads to the ex- 
tremity of the cave. Where it enlarges is a steep and rather 
slippery descent to water. This is called by some a lake ; the 
rock-roof comes so close to the surface that its lateral extent 
can not be seen. The water is very clear and still, and in- 
creases in depth, gradually, off the shore. 

" The ' Half-mfle Cave is about a quarter of a mile from the 
hotel in Clarksville. This cave is often visited, and has a large, 
wooden, cellar-like door, and wet, slippery steps, which lead in 
winter down into warm, steaming darkness. Now go down the 
dark hole on your right ; it is a steep descent. You are in 
darkness again, and your light but feebly illuminates the place. 
There is a sickening damp warmth ; it is not unlike a charnel 
house, a catacomb. You may have a mile or more of clamber- 
ing in and out from this cave. There are long passages where 
you might drive a team of horses and a wagon ; narrow, muddy 
passages in profusion ; bats overhead and fiuttering past you 
'everywhere. On all sides you hear them squeaking and chat- 
tering and grinding with their teeth ; it is horrid, if you de- 
termine to see the end of the cave and the lake, and are not 
afraid of mud and low, flat passages, you will go further. Again 
the cavern enlarges; a black emptiness is before you. Ap- 
proach. Yon stand upon the shores of ' Styx.' A vaulted roof 
of dripping rock, a silent, echoing cavity, scarcely illuminated 
by dim lantern-light. Unruffled are the still, deep waters, 
green, though clear. 

" Often the roads on the summit of the Helderberghs are of 
solid, level rock ; the mountain top is a plateau smooth as a 
table. In places the rock is jointed and in small blocks, and re- 
sembles a Belgian pavement ; again it changes, and a singular 
sight meets your eyes. The rock plateau is split by numberless 



ALBANY COUNTT. 81 



parallel crevices. The sutures between the long blocks or 
trunks of stone, are often twenty feet or more in depth, though 
sometimes choked with rubbish, and generally six, eight or ten 
inches wide. On the mountain, above the village of New Sa- 
lem, these clefts extend perfectly parallel for miles. At times 
rectangular or diagonal sutures cross the main ones ; then the 
rock is cut in blocks a yard square on the surface ; downward, 
twenty feet, more or less, it is a pillar. Near Clarksville, on the 
slope of Copeland Hill, the clefts are two, three, or four feet 
wide; sometimes black, bottomless looking pits, unexplored. 
Below are often other subterranean rivers, flowing no one knows 
where from or whither. 

" But there is not space to mention everything of interest in 
this forgotten range of hills — the numerous waterfalls and cav- 
erns and mountain-split gulfs."

The record of this County during the Rebellion bears a favor- 
able comparison with that of other counties in the State. The 
news of the fall of Fort Sumter was received with a profound 
sensation; party zeal was forgotten and the people generdly 
vied with each other in demonstrations of loyalty and devotion 
to the country. Recruiting offices were immediately opened 
and volunteers were rapidly enlisted. On the evening of April 
15th, Captain John Lawless, at the head of a company of vol- 
unteers, marched to the Capitol and tendered their services in 
defense of the Union. The Common CouncU of the City recom- 
mended that an appropriation of $30,000 be made for the fami- 
lies of volunteers, and an installment of $5,000 was immediately 
set apart for that purpose. They also tendered the Industrial 
School building for the use of the soldiers gathering at this 
point. The east wing of the Albany Hospital, with its dispen- 
sary, was devoted, by its directors, to the use of the State Hedi- 
cal Department. Funds were raised by private subscription for 
the families of volunteers, and large contributions of provisions 
and clothing were made to meet the immediate necessities of 
the volunteers. The ladies of the City instituted a relief asso- 
ciation, which contributed greatly to the comfort of the soldiers

in camp and hospital. On the 22d of July it was oflBcially re- 
ported that $18,350 had been expended from the public sources, 
and the private contributions greatly exceeded that amount. 

The Twenty-fifth Regiment of the uniformed Militia of the 
State tendered their services to the Government and were or- 
dered to Washington to serve until relieved by other regiments. 
The Regiment was commanded by Col. Michael K. Bryan; 
Lieut. Col. James Swift ; Major David Friedlander. It left Al- 
bany, April 32, amid a crowd of anxious spectators and friends 
assembled to bid them farewell. The Regiment numbered be- 
tween five and six hundred when it left Albany, but was joined 
by the Burgess Corps, in Washington, about the first of Ma^. 
It arrived in Washington the 29th of April, being the fifth reg- 
iment that reached that city. May 23 they were ordered to Ar- 
lington Hights, where they encamped on the 24th, and soon af- 
ter commenced the erection of a fort which, in honor of their 
City, they called Fort Albany. About twenty acres of wood- 
land were cleared in the vicinity of the Fort. The Regiment 
remained in the service until August 4, when it was mustered 
out. The patriotism manifested at the commencement of the 
war was continued with few exceptions to its close, the people 
showing themselves worthy of their Revolutionary sires.

ALBANY CITY, named from the Duke of York and 
Albany, to whom the Province was granted, was incorporated 
by patent, July 22, 1686, having previously enjoyed divers 
rights and privileges under the names of Beverwyck, William 
Stadt and Albany. It was also called by the Dutch, New Orange, 
The first officers were Peter Schuyler, Major; Isaac Swinton, 
Recorder ; Robert Livingston, Clerk ; Jan Bleecker, Chamber- 
lain; Richard Pretty, Sheriff; James Parker, Marshall. The 
original charter conveyed municipal jurisdiction over the terri- 
tory bounded east by the low water mark on the Hudson, south 
by a line drawn from the southernmost end of the pasture at 
the north end of Martin Gerritsen's Island, and running back 
due north-west, sixteen miles into the woods, to a certain creek 
called Sandkil ; north by a line parallel to the former, about a 
mile distant, and west by a straight line drawn from the western 
extremities of the north and south lines. This charter em- 
braced the right to certain public buildings and fields, the feriy, 
all waste land within their boundaries, the right of fishing in 
the Hudson within the limits of the County, and of purchasing 
of the Indians 500 acres of meadow land at " Schaatcogue " on 
the north, and 1,000 acres at " Tionnonderoga," (Port Hunter,) 
on the west, in the Mohawk country, on which to plant, colo- 
nies as barriers against hostile incursions. The quit rent was 
fixed at one beaver skin, payable annually at Albany, on the 
25th of March, forever. 

The part of the City north of Patroon and Quackenboss 
Streets, known as the Colonie, was incorporated March 31,1791, 
and again March 30, 1801. It was made a village April 9, 
1804, and was organized as a town April 11, 1808. The town 
was divided and merged in Albany and Watervliet, Feb. 25, 
1815. In 1870 a portion of Watervliet was annexed to Albany, 
as was also a small portion of Bethlehem on the south. 

The City lies upon the west bank of the Hudson River, a lit- 
tle north of the center of the County, and, until a few months 



OAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 96 

since, embraced a strip of land about a mile wide, extending 
thirteen and a half miles in a north-west direction, to the north 
boundary of the County. The last Legislature set off that por- 
tion of the City lying north-west of a point near where the road 
crosses the City line into Guilderland, on to Watervliet. 

A narrow interval of low land lies along the course of the 
river, bounded by steep banks from 150 to 350 feet high, where 
a barren region commences, rising tow&rds the west and broken 
by numerous sand hills and ridges. The banks which form the 
declivities of this tract are separated into several distinct ridges 
by the deep guUeys worn in the clay by the streams which flow 
through them. The soil, except near the river, is a light sand, 
producing very little without the aid of costly fertilizers. 

The Erie Canal terminates at this place, opening into a large 
basin and thence into the river. The eastern termini of the 
N. Y. Central, Rensselaer & Saratoga and Albany & Susquehan- 
na Railroads are in this City. The Boston & Albany, Hudson 
River, Harlem and Troy & Greenbush Railroads are connected 
with the City by a substantial bridge. 

Albany is the largest barley market in the United States, im- 
mense quantities of this grain being manufactured into malt 
and beer. It is an extensive lumber market, a vast amount of 
which is transported hither from the north and west. 

"The Lumber District", is along the canal, above the Little 
Basin, where extensive wharves and slips have been constructed 
to facilitate the transfer of lumber from canal boats to vessels, 
upon which it is transported down the river. The manufac- 
tures of the City are varied and extensive, embracing agricul- 
tural implements, steam engines, carriage and car factories, iron 
foundries, machine shops, breweries, type and stereotype foun- 
dries, lithographs, picture frames, pianos, and almost everything 
to be found in any city of the size in the United States. The 
stove foundries and breweries are very extensive. Bricks are 
also extensively manufactured. 

The City is supplied with water from works erected at public 
expense, the water being obtained from several creeks west and 
north of the City. The main reservoir, Rensselaer Lake, is five 
. miles west of the City Hall and has an elevation of 262 feet 
above the river. It covers thirty-nine acres and has a capacity 
of 180,000,000 gallons. A brick aqueduct conveys the water to 
Bleeker Reservoir, on Patroon Street, where it is distributed to 
the portion of the City west of Pearl Street. This Reservoir 
has a capacity of 30,000,000 gallons. The lower portion of the 
City is supplied from Tivoli Reservoir, on Patroon Creek, cov- 
ering twenty acres and having a capacity of 30,000,000. These 
works are under the control of a Board of Water Commissioners, 



96 GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 



and the rents are charged to property owners and collected with 
the taxes. The receipts from the Water Works for the year 
ending Nov. 1, 1869, were $127,437.59. The original cost of the 
Works was 1850,000. 

The State buildings at Albany are the Capital, State Hall, 
State Library, Geological and Agricultural Hall, Normal 
School and State Arsenal 

The Capitol was commenced in 1803 and finished in 1807 at 
the joint expense of the City and County of Albany and the 
State of New York. The original cost was over $120,000, of 
which $34,200 was paid by the City and $3,000 by the County 
of Albany. It was used for County, City and State offices until 
1832, when it was fitted up for legislative and other public pur- 
poses. It stands at the head of State Street, 130 feet above the 
Hudson, and has in front a park of three acres, enclosed by an 
iron fence. It is built of stone, faced with Nyock Red Freestone, 
The building contains the Assembly Chamber, the Senate 
Chamber, Court of Appeals, and various other rooms for the 
Executive and Legislative Departments of the Government 

The State Library is a fire-proof building in the rear of the 
Capitol, and connected with it by a corridor. It is constructed 
of brick and iron, and faced on its two fronts with brownstone. 
It was erected in 1853-4 and cost nearly $100,000. It was opened 
to the public, Jan. 2, 1855. The first story is devoted to the 
Law Library, and the second to the General Library. The lat- 
ter contains a large number of costly presents from other Gov- 
ernments, a valuable series of manuscripts and parchments re- 
lating to our Colonial and early State history, and an extensive 
collection of coins and medals, both ancient and modern. The 
General Library embraces about 50,000 volumes, and the Law 
Library about 20,000. The Library is open from 9 A. M. to 5 
P. M., when any persgn is permitted to consult any work con- 
tained therein, but is not allowed to take books from the room. 

The State Hall, located upon Eagle Street, fronting the Acad- 
emy Park, is built of cut stone, with a colonnade in front, sup- 
ported by six Ionic columns, and is surmounted by a dome. 
The building is 138 by 88 feet, and 65 feet high. The ceilings 
of the basement and two principal stories are grained arches, 
and all the rooms except the attic story are fire-proof. The base- 
ment and attic are each nineteen feet, and the other stories each 
twentjr-two feet high. The building cost about $350,000. It 
contains the oflfices of the Secretary of State, Comptroller, 
Treasurer, Auditor of Canal Department, Canal Commissioners, 
State Engineer and Surveyor, Division Engineers, Clerk of 
Court of Appeals, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Super-

intendent of Bank Department, Attorney General, State Sealer 
of Weights and Measures and Insurance Department. 

The State Geological and Agricultural Hall, corner of State and 
Lodge Streets, was erected in 1855. It is constructed of brick, 
and is four stories high besides the basement. The Agricul- 
tural Eooms were dedicated Feb. 12, 1857, and the Cabinet was 
opened to the public Feb. 22, 1858. The building contains a 
lecture room, the Geological Cabinet, the Museum of Natural 
History, and rooms for the officers of the Tarious departments 
connected with the building. The Cabinet originated in the 
Geological Surrey, and in extent and value ranks among the 
first in America. The Museum is designed to embrace a com- 
plete representation of the eeologioal formations of the State, 
with their accompanying minerals and fossils, and of its entire 
native flora and fauna. The birds and quadrupeds are preserved 
by a skillful taxidermist, with the attitudes and appearance of 
life, and the reptiles and fishes are principally preserved in al- 
cohol. Connected with this Cabinet is an historical and antiqua- 
rian department, embracing numerous aboriginal antiquities 
and specimens of modem Indian art, relics of oattle-flelds and 
other objects of historical interest. The whole is under the 
charge of a curator appointed by the Keggnts. The Museum of 
the State Agricultural Society, in a separate apartment of the 
building, contains a large collection of obsolete and modern im- 
plements of husbandry, specimens of agricultural and mechan- 
ical products, models of fruits, samples of grains and soils, and 
drawings illustrating subjects connected with the useful arts. 
These collections are open to the public every week day except 
holidays. 

The State' Normal School is located at the corner of Howard 
and Lodge Streets. The present building was erected in 1848 
at a cost of $25,000. The school was established for the in- 
struction and practice of teachers in the common schools of the 
State. The school is supported by an annual appropriation 
from the Literature Fund, and is under the immediate charge 
of an executive committee appointed by the Regents of the 
University. 

The State Arsenal is a fine brick building situated on Eagle 
Street, corner of Hudson. 

The City Hall is situated on Eagle Street, fronting the east 
end of Washington Avenue. It is a fine building, faced with 
Sing Sing marble, built at the joint expense of the City and 
County, and containing most of the City and County oflfices. 

The City Building is a fine brick structure on South Pearl 
Street, corner of Howard. It is a new building and contains

corner stone of the edifice was laid July 39, 1815, by Philip S. 
Van Rensselaer. The copper plate deposited on this occasion 
contained the following inscription : " Erected for an academy 
anno. 1815, by the corporation of the City of Albany ; Philip 
S. Van Rensselaer, Mayor ; John Van Ness Yates, Recorder ; 
building committee, Philip S. Van Rensselaer, John Brinker- 
\ hoff, Ghauncey Humphrey, James Warren and Killian K. Van 
Rensselaer. Seth Geer, architect ; H. W. Snyder, sculpt." The 
Academy was compl^d in 1817, and opened Sept. 1 of the 
same year. T. Rome^ Beck was elected Principal, and con- 
tinued to hold the office for thirty-one years. 

The Albany Female Academy was established in 1814, under 
the designation of the Union School, which was located on 
Montgomery Street. The present edifice on North Pearl Street 
was erected in 1834. The building is in the Grecian style, 
with an Ionic portico. It has sustained a high Reputation and 
is patronized by the best citizens of the City. 

The Albany Medical College was incorporated Feb. 16, 1839. — 
It is located on Eagle Street. It had its origin in the efforts of 
Drs. March and Armsby to instruct the people in anatomy and 
physiology. Dr. March came from Massachusetts in 1830, and 
the next year commenced a course of lectures on anatomy to a 
class of fourteen. The prejudice against dissections was so 
great that he was compelled to bring his subjects from Boston, 
sometimes in his own private carriage. In 1835 he was ap- 
pointed Professor in the Vermont Medical College at Castleton, 
and in 1830 he delivered a lecture on the propriety of establish- 
ing a medical college at Albany. In 1831 Dr. Armsby came to 
Albany as a student of Dr. March. He subsequently delivered 
lectures on anatomy, and aroused such an interest on the part 
of some of the citizens, that the building erected for a Lan- 
casterian school was procured for the use of the Professors.

The first Professors were Alden March, J. H. Armsby, Amos 
Dean, E. Emmons, Henry Greene and D. M. McLochHn. The 
first class after the incorporation of the College, numbered 
57. During the latewar, 243 graduates of the College and five 
of the Faculty were volunteer surgeons in the service. For 
the purpose of establishing this institution, fifty citizens of 
Albany gave $1,000 each; fifty others $500 each, and fifty 
ladies $100 each. It has an extensive medical museum and a 
choice library of several thousand volumes. Two courses of 
lectures are delivered annually. 

The Albany Law School was established in 1851. Two courses 
of lectures are delivered annually, in rooms attached to thp 
Medical College. Graduates of this institution are admitted 
to practice in all the courts of the State. 

The Toung MerCs Association was organized in 1833, and in- 
corporated March 12, 1835. It supports a lecture course dur- 
ing the winter, and has a -library of about 12,000 volumes. 
The Eeading Eoom is supplied with the leading daily papers 
from all parts of the country, as well as a large number of 
weekly papers, periodicals and reviews, numbering in all about 
100. The rooms are very pleasantly situated on State street, 
near Broadway, and are fitted up for comfort and convenience. 

The Albany Institute, a society for the promotion of science 
and art, was incorporated Feb. 27, 1829, by the union of the 
Society of Arts and the Albany Lyceum of Natural History. 
It has three departments. The first is devoted to Physical 
Science and the Arts, the second to Natural History, and the 
third to History and General Literature. From October to 
May the Society meet semi-monthly at the Albany Academy. 
It has a valuable library and an extensive collection of minerals, 
and specimens of natural history. Prof. Henry, of the Smith- 
sonian Institute, read his first scientific papers before this asso- 
ciation, while a student in the Albany Academy. 

The Albany City Hospital, situated on Eagle Street, corner of 
Howard, was incorporated April 11, 1849. It was founded by 
private subscription, and the present building was opened for 
the reception of patients August 8, 1854. This building was 
originally erected by the City for a jail. 

St. Peter's Hospital, located on the corner of Broadway and 
North Ferry Streets, was founded by Mrs. Peter Cagger and 
daughter, in 1869. It has accommodations for 36 patients, and 
is under the charge of the Sisters of Mercy. 

The Albany Orphan Asylum, located on Eobin Street, between 
"Washington Avenue and Great Western Turnpike, was incor- 



100 GAZETTEER OE TOWNS. 

porated March 30, 1831, though it had previously been in 
operation about two years. It was commenced as a private en- 
terprise, and the building was erected by subscription and the 
product of several ladies' fairs. It is now supported by appro- 
priations from |he State, the interest on its endowment and the 
proceeds of an annual fair. 

St. Vincent's Orphan Asylum was incorporated in 1849. The 
n|ale department is situated on Western Avenue and is under 
the care of the Christian Brothers. The female department is 
on North Pearl Street and is under the care of the Sisters of 
Mercy. 

The Dudley Observatory, located on an eminence in the north 
part of the City, was named in honor of Mrs. Blandina Dudley, 
who contributed liberally towards its establishment and endow- 
ment. It was incorporated April 2, 1853, and its management 
intrusted to fifteen trustees. The ground plan of the building 
is in the form of a cross, 84 feet in front and 73 feet deep. ' The 
center room is 28 feet square ; the east and west wings are 36 
feet square, and the north wing 40 feet square, divided into li- 
brary and computing rooms. The Equatorial Room, which is 
in the second story, is of a circular form, 24 feet in diameter, 
the tower revolving upon iron balls. The main pier for the 
support of the equatorial was commenced six feet below the 
bottom of the cellar, with its base, fifteen feet square, resting on 
a bed of concrete and rubble sixteen inches in thickness. The 
size of the pier-was gradually reduced to ten feet square at the 
level of the cellar, and coiftinued upward without further varia- 
tion. The whole is built in the most substantial manner, of 
large stone, well bedded. The piers in the transit rooms are six 
feet by eight, and each is furnished with clock piers of similar 
construction. The building is admirably arranged and fur- 
nished with some of the best instruments to be found in this 
country. It was dedicated Aug. 28, 1856, and placed under the 
charge of a scientific council to be employed by the coast sur- 
vey. Hon. Edward Everett delivered an oration on the occasion. 
Mrs. Dudley contributed $76,500 towards the erection and en- 
dowment of the institution, and other citizens of Albany con- 
tributed liberally. 

The Albany Alms House is located in the south-west pp,rt of 
the City. It includes the necessary buildings for the poor and 
the insane. The County as well as the City poor are supported 
at this place. 

The Albany Industrial School for vagrant children was estab- 
lished in 1857. It was located near the Alms House. The 
building was subsequently used as a Soldiers' Home, but is at 
present unoccupied.

The New Capitol, the foundation of which is already laid, will 
stand in the rear of the old one and Congress Hall, between 
State Street and Washington Avenue, fronting the Park. Its 
extent north and south is 290 feet, and east and west 390 feet. 
There will be a carriage entrance under the portico of the east 
front The main entrance floor will be reached by a flight of 
steps on the east front, leading to the entrance hall, which occu- 
pies an area of 60 by 74 feet, and a hight of 25 feet. There wi^ 
also be entrances to this floor from State Street and from Wash- 
ington Avenue. Communicating directly with the main hall 
are two grand stairways, forming the principal means of com- 
munication with the second story. On the left of the main 
hall will be a suit of rooms for the Governor, his Secretary and 
Military Staff; on the right will be rooms for the Secretary of 
State and Attorney General, with a corridor leading to the Court 
of Appeals. On the second floor will be the Assembly Chamber, 
75 by 92 feet, with a gallery on three sides, twenty feet in width. 
The Senate Chamber, upon the same floor, will be 55 by 75 feet, 
with a gallery similar to that of the Assembly. The State Li- 
brary will occupy the east front of these two stories, and will be 
283 by 54 feet. This will be the finest room in the whole build- 
ing, and will doubtless be a place of resort for the Literati of 
the City and State. The main tower will be sixty-six feet 
square and 320 feet high. In the center of the building will be 
an open court, 137 by 92 feet. The foundation is laid on con- 
crete, and is of large closely cut limestone, from two to six tons 
in weight, laid in regular courses. The entire weight of the 
structure will be about 150,000 tons. When completed accord- 
ing to the present plans it will be one of the finest public build- 
ings in the United States, and far superior to any other State 
Capitol. The Commissioners for its erection are Hamilton Har- 
ris, J. v. L. Pruyn-, 0. B. Latham, J. S. Thayer, A. B. Cornell, 
W. A. Eice and James Terwilliger. Its cost is variously esti- 
mated at from $4,000,000 to 810,000,000. 

The Hudson River Bridge at Albany, is a magnificent struc- 
ture, and was formally opened for traffic on the first of March, 
1866, two years having been occupied in its construction. The 
total length of the bridge and the approaches is 4,009 feet. 
Some idea of the magnitude of the work may be obtained from 
the following statement of its cost and the materials used in its 
construction : — ' 

Lineal feet of piles, 165,000 

Feet of timber, board measure, 2,500,000 

Tons of iron, 430 

Cubic yards of concrete, 4,000 

Cubic yards of loose stone, 14,000 



102 OAZETTEBB OF TOWNS. 

Cubic yards of masonry, 13,000 

The total cost including real estate, right of way, 

etc., was 81,150,000 

It is the design to replace the present wood superstructure 
with iron, and have a double track. A new railroad bridge is 
to be built across the river near the old railroad ferry, the new 
bridge to be used for passenger trains and the present one for 
freight exclusively. 

The Public Schools are under the control of a Board of Edu- 
cation, consisting of a president, secretary and twelve com- 
missioners, four of whom are elected annually for three years. 
In 1795 an act passed the Legislature appropriating £20,000 
annually for the term of five years, for school purposes. The 
proportion allotted to Albany County was £1,590 or $3,975. 
This was a long step towards our free school system. 

In May 1785, a school was opened by Elihu Goodrich and 
John Ely. The Latin and Greek languages were taught, and 
the most useful branches of mathematics and the elementary 
branches. The tours of study were from 6 to 8, 9 to 12, 3 to 5 
and 6 to 8. The terms were for Greek, Latin and Mathematics, 
20 shillings; writing and ciphering, 16 shillings; reading and 
spelling, 12 shillings, to all of which, singing, "by the latest 
and most approved method," was added for 12 shillings. 

For many years after the first settlement, the inhabitants 
were Dutch, and that was the language of the town. It was 
not until 1665 that an English school was taught. The follow- 
ing is a copy of a license by the Governor : — 

" Whekeas the teaching of the English Tongue is necessary in this Gov- 
ernment, I have therefore thought fltt to give hcense to John Shutte to be 
the English Schoolmaster at Albany. And upon condition that the said 
John Shutte shall not demand any more wages from each Scholar than iis 
given by the Dutch to their Dutch Schoolmasters, I have ftirther granted 
to the said John Shutte that he shall be the only English Schoolmaster at 
Albany. Given under my hand at Fort James in New York, the 12th day 
of October, 1665." " Richakd Nicols." 

Albany was at first a mere trading post, but under the patron- 
age of the Patroon quite a hamlet sprung up in the vicinity of 
the Fort, erected near the present steamboat landing, and called 
Fort Orange. It was a stockade, and for several years served 
the purposes for which it was designed. A larger fort was after- 
wards erected on the hill, near the site of St. Peter's Church, in 
State Street. A line of palisades extended from the Fort as far 
north as Steuben Street, and south to Hudson, extending on the 
east to the river. A more extended line of palisades was after- 
wards constructed, reaching to Hamilton Street on the south, and 
north to Orange Street. The following description of Albany 
in 1695 will give a good idea of its appearance :

" As the city of New York is the chief place of strength belonging to this 
province for its defense spinet those enemies who come by sea, so Albany 
is the principal consideration against those who come by land, the French 
and Indians of Canada. It is distant from New York 150 miles and lies up 
Hudson's River on the west side, on the descent of a hill from the west to 
to the eastward. It is in circumference about six furlongs and hath there- 
in about 200 houses, a fourth part of what there is reckoned to be in New 
York. The form of it is septangular, and the longest line, that which buts 
upon the river, ranning from the north to the south. On the west angle 
is the fort, quadrangular, stongly stockaded and ditched round, having in it 
twenty-one pieces of ordnance mounted. On the north-west side are two 
block-houses, and on the south-west as many; in the south-east angle 
stands one block-house ; in the middle of the line from thence northward is 
a horned work, and on the south-east angle a mount. The whole city 
is well stockaded round, aand in the several fortifications named are about 
thirty guns." 

From a plan of Albany at that time there appears to have 
been six gates, two upon the Handlaers street, now Broadway, 
one upon North Pearl, one near the Fort, and two upon the east 
side; giving access to the river. There was also a church at the 
junction of Broadway and State Streets, and another upon the 
present site of the new City Building. 

The first church organized in Albany was the Reformed Pro- 
testant Dutch, It was organized at a very early day, but the pre- 
cise time is not known. In 1642 Eev. Johannes Megapolensis 
came out under the patronage of the Patroon, as pastor of this 
society. The conditions upon which he accepted the call to 
Kensselaerwyck were a free passage for himself and family ; an 
outfit of 300 guilders (1120) and an annual salary of $440, 
twenty-two and a half bushels of wheat and two firkins of but- 
ter for the first three years; and if the Patroon was^ satisfied 
with his services he was to receive an additional sum of $80 
per annum for another term of three years. His family con- 
sisted of a wife and four ckildren. A house had been contract- 
ed for but was not completed on his arrival, though one was af- 
terwards purchased for $120. The first church edifice was 
erected in 1643, it was 34 by 19 feet, and stood near Fort 
Orange, near the present site of the Albany & Susquehanna E. 
K. Depot. The furniture of the church consisted of a pulpit 
ornamented with a canopy, pews for the magistrates and the 
deacons, and nine benches for the congregation, the entire cost 
of which was $32. This house continued to accommodate the 
congregation until 1656, when a new one was erected in State 
Street, comer of Broadway. In 1652 Eev. Gideon Schaets came 
over to supply the pulpit at Albany, receiving a salary of $320, 
which was afterwards increased to $400, and again to $520. 
He retired in 1683. Eev. Mr. Kiewenhuysen was a colleague of 
Mr. Schaets as early as 1671. In 1675 Eev. Nicholas Van Eens- 
selaer arrived here and set up a claim, not only to the pulpit. 



106 GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 

but also to the Manor, but failed to obtain either. This caused 
some diflSculty in the Colony, but it was finally referred to the 
Consistory of the Dutch Church at Albany, for decision. Col- 
lections were taken in the church for the support of the poor, 
and though they supported a poor house, the fands accumulated 
so that at one time there was more than 13,000 guilders in the 
treasury. This money was used to TDuild the church and par- 
sonage. Sometimes money was loaned to the Patroon, as the 
following note shows : 

" I the undersigned, Anthonie de Hooges, have, on the part of the noble 
Patroon of the Colonie Rensselaerwyck, borrowed from the Diaconie of 
the aforesaid place, for the term of one year, to be repaid in cash at the op- 
tion of the lenders with ten per cent interest per annum, the sum of three 
hundred guilders in seawan, whereof one hundred and twenty is in ordi- 
nary seawan, promising thankftilly to produce at the aforesaid time, in 
stated specie aforesaid, to the Diaconie of the aforesaid place. 

In testimony whereof, have I subscribed this Acte with mine own hand. 
Actum R. Wyck, 9th May, 1647." 

In 1656 a church was erected at the corner of Jonkers and 
Handlaers Streets, known now as State and Broadway. This 
church was built of stone and served the congregation until 
1715, when another one was erected on the same site, similar 
in all respects except in size. The foundation was laid around 
the old one, and the walls were carried up, enclosing the old 
church, which was not removed until th-e new one was so near 
completion that services were suspended only three Sabbaths. 
The comer stone of the church erected in 1656 was laid by 
Rutger Jacobson, one of the magistrates, in presence of the au- 
thorities both of the town and Colonie, and of the assembled 
inhabitants. A temporary pulpit was at first erected for the 
use of the minister, but the settlers subscribed twenty-five beav- 
ers to purchase a more splendid one in Holland. The Chamber 
at Amsterdam added seventy-five guilders to this sum, on ac- 
count of the beavers being greatly damaged, and " with a view 
to inspire the congregation with more ardent zeal," presented 
them the the' next year, with a bell " to adorn their newly con- 
structed little church." The Patroon and Co-directors sub- 
scribed 1,000 guilders, and 1,500 were appropriated from the 
fines imposed by the Court at Port Orange, towards the erection 
of this church. The new church, erected in 1715, was furnished 
with the same pulpit that had been imported from Holland, 
and was retained in its place until the church was taken down 
in 1806. This pulpit was constructed of oak, octagonal in form, 
and about four feet higli and three feet in diameter. The win- 
dows of the church contained the armorial bearings of several 
of the wealthy families of the City. The land upon which the 
church stood was sold to the City in 1805 for $5,000. The cus-

toms of the worshipers at this church would be regarded novel 
at this day. The men sat with their hats on during the service. 
The collections were taken up by means of a pole with a small 
bag and bell attached to it. In the midst of the sermon the 
Dominie would stop, the Deacons would rise up, take the imple- 
ments for the collection, bring the poles to a perpendicular 
against the shoulder, and await an address from the Domi- 
nie, explaining the object of the collection. The Deacons would 
then present the bag, the little bell arousing the sleepy burgh- 
ers, and after the collection was taken, the choir sang a hymn 
and the sermon was tiien concluded. The form of the collect- 
ing implements was such as to conceal the amount of the 
contribution, and sometimes on examination there proved to 
be a variety of coin unrecognized by the statute, anything that 
would fall into the bae with a chink answering the purpose. 
To rid themselves of tnis kind of contributions, the Deacons 
procured some open plates, but to their surprise, on presenting 
them to the honest burghers, some of them turned their backs 
in indignant scorn. The plates were however retained and 
have continued to this day. In those early days when the 
money in circulation consisted of beaver skins and wampum, 
and the wealth of the citizens was very small compared with 
the present, 225 guilders were sometimes taken up on the Sab- 
bath, equal to ninety dollars. 

The funeral ceremonies of the Dutch were quite singular. 
No person attended without a previous invitation. At the ap- 
pointed hour they met at the neighboring houses or stoops un- 
til the corpse was brought out. Ten or twelve persons were ap- 
pointed as pall bearers and took the bier. The clerk would 
then invite the gentlemen to fall into the procession. They re- 
turned from the grave to the house in the same order. Here 
they found the tables handsomly set and furnished with spiced 
wine, tobacco, pipes, candles, paper, &c. The conversation soon 
turned upon general subjects and the house of mourning soon 
became a house of feasting and merriment. Ladies never went 
to the grave except to that of a near relative. They would re- 
main at the house, eat cakes and drink spiced wine until the 
return of the men, and then leave. The beat room in the house 
was set apart as " the dead room," and was rarely opened except 
to be aired and cleaned. A bill of expenses for burying a church 
pauper amounted to about forty dollars, some of the most pro- 
minent items being for rum and beer. Wealthy citizens pro- 
cured a cask of wine during their lifetime and preserved it for 
their funeral. 

A conflict . of jurisdiction arose between the officers of the 
garrison at Fort Orange and the agents of the Patroon. Direc- 



108 OAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 

tor Stuyvesant claimed jurisdiction for the Fort over a circle 
the radius of which was equal to the range of a cannon shot, 
and estimated at about one hundred and fifty rods. As the 
hamlet of Beverwyck at this time [1651] was chiefly within 
that circuit, the authorities of Eensselaerwyck not only opposed 
this jurisdiction but claimed that the Fort stood upon the Pat- 
roon's land, and could have no jurisdiction outside of its walls. 
While the controversy was at its hight, Jean Baptiste Van 
Rensselaer was elected one of the magistrates, and shortly after 
an order was issued for all the inhabitants to take the oath of 
allegiance to the Patroon and his representatives. The oath 
was as follows : " I promise and swear that I shall be true and 
faithful to the noble Patroon and Co-directors, or those who re- 
present them here, and to the Hon. Director, Commissioners and 
Council, subjecting myself to the Court of the Colonic ; and I 
promise to demean myself as a good and faithful inhabitant or 
Burgher, without excitiiig any opposition, tumult or noise ; but 
on the contrary as a loyal inhabitant, to maintain and support, 
offensively and defensively against every one, the Right and Ju- 
risdiction of the Colonie. And with reverence and fear of the 
Lord, and uplifting of both the first fingers of the right hand, I 
say — so truly help me God Almighty." On New Year's night, 
1652, some soldiers sallied out and fired a number of shots at 
the Patroon's house. Several pieces of ignited wadding lodged 
upon the roof, which was of reeds, and set it on fire, and would 
have caused its destruction had not the inmates been on the 
alert. The next day a collision occurred between the soldiers 
and citizens, resulting in the severe beating of several children 
and others. The difficulties continued, and a placard was dis- 
patched to Dyckman, the Commissary of the Fort, declaring 
that the jurisdiction of Fort Orange extended within a circum- 
ference of 600 paces of said Fort, " and in order that no man 
shall plead ignorance, we further charge our Commissary, after 
publication hereof, to erect on the aforesaid limits, north, south, 
and west of the aforesaid fortress, a post marked with the Com- 
pany's mark, and to affix on a board nailed thereto a copy here- 
of." Within these bounds no house was to be erected except by 
the consent of the Director and Council, or those authorized to 
act for them. This violent and illegal act separated Beverwyck 
from the Colonie of Rensselaerwyck. It was in direct violation 
of the 6th article of the Charter, and was afterwards so ac- 
knowledged. 

Killian Van Rensselaer, the first Patro'on, died in 1647, leav- 
ing the property to his son Johannes, a minor. The manage- 
ment of the Colonie devolved upon thciexecutors, who appoint- 
ed Brant Arent Van Slechtenhorst, " Director of the Colonie, 



OXZETTEER OF TOWNS. 109 

President of the Court of Justice and Superintendent of all the 
bouweries, farms, mills and other property belonging to the 
Patroon, at a salary of 750 florins ($300) per annum, to reckon 
from the date of his arrival out, together with a house, four 
milch cows, two horses, four morgens of tillage and four mor- 
gens of pasture land." He arrived in the Colonic in March 
1648. From the commencement of establishing colonies by 
Patroons, the Directors of the Amsterdam Chamber became 
jealous of their existence and opposed their continuance. In 
the prosecution of their policy they endeavored to induce the 
Patroon of Eensselaerwyck to cede to them his rights, privileges 
and possessions, but failing to effect their object, thej endeav- 
ored to circumscribe his jurisdiction as much as possible. Pe- 
ter Stuyvesant, the Director-general on the part of the Amster- 
dam Chamber, and Brant Van Slechtenhorst, -the representative 
of the Patroon, were the champions of the opposing interests. 
The former claimed to be supreme ruler of the whole country, 
irrespective of the special rights and feudal privileges granted 
to the Patroon. The latter recognized no authority within his 
limits except that of the Patroon and his legal representatives. 
He maintained that whatever orders might be issued by the Di- 
rector-general, they were powerless unless indorsed by his com- 
mander and executed by the oflBcers of his court. Under such 
circumstances it was not strange that in a very short time a col- 
hsion occurred. On the 26th of April a copy of a proclamation, 
ordering a general fast to be observed on the first Wednesday 
in May, was received at Eensselaerwyck and strongly protested 
against by Van Slechtenhorst. This was not pleasing to Stuy- 
vesant and he resolved to visit the Colonic, accompanied by a 
military escort, and correct the abuse. His arrival was greeted 
by a salute from the Patroon's artillery. 

In 1749 Peter Kalm, a naturalist of one of the Swedish 
universities, visited this country for the purpose of making 
scientific investigations. In speaking of the means of transpor- 
tation between Albany and New York, he says, all the yachts 
which ply between these twd cities belong to Albany. "They go 
up and down the Eiver Hudson, as long as it is open and free 
from ice. They bring from Albany boards or planks, and all 
sorts of timber, flour, pease and furs, which they get from the 
Indians or which are smuggled from the French. They come 
home almost empty and only bring a few merchandises with 
them, among which rum is the chief. This last is absolutely 
necessary to the inhabitants of Albany. They cheat the In- 
dians in the fur trade with it ; for when the Indians are drunk, 
they will leave it to the Albanians to fix the price of the furs. 
The yachts are pretty large and have a good cabin, in which

the passengers can be eommodiously lodged." * * * " The 
canoes which the yachts have along with them are made of a 
single piece of wood hollowed out; they are sharp at both ends, 
frequently three or four fathoms long and as broad as the thick- 
ness of the wood will allow. The people in it do not row sit- 
ting, but commonly a fellow stands at each end with a short 
oar in his hand, with which he governs and brings the canoe 
forward." " Battoes are another kind of boats which are much 
in use at Albany. They are made of boards of white pine. The 
bottom is flat that they may row the better in shallow water ; 
they are sharp at both ends and somewhat higher towards the 
end than in the middle. They have seats in them and are 
rowed like common boats." In speaking of the water of the 
wells, Kalm says, " I found an abundance of little insects in it, 
which were probably monoculi." He sayS : " I think this water 
is not very wholesome for people who are not used to it, though 
the inhabitants of Albany who drink it every day, say they do 
not feel the least inconvenien'ce from it." " The houses in this 
town are very neat and partly built with stones covered with 
shingles of the white pine. Some are slated with tiles from 
Holland, because the clay of this neighborhood is not reckoned 
fit for tiles. Most of the houses are built in the old way with 
the gable end towards the street ; a few excepted which were 
lately built in the manner now used." " The street doors are 
generally in the middle of the houses, and on both sides are 
seats on which during fair weather the people spend almost the 
whole day, egpfecially on those which are in the shadow of the 
houses. In the evening these seats are covered with people of 
both seres, but this is rather troublesome, as those who pass by 
are obliged to greet everybody, unless they will shock the polite- 
ness of the inhabitants of this town. The streets are broad and 
some of them are paved, in some parts they are lined with trees. 
The streets upon the whole are very dirty because the people 
leave their cattle in them during the summer nights." 

"The inhabitants of Albany are much more sparing than the 
English. The meat which is served up is often insafficient to 
satisfy the stomach, and the bowl does not circulate so freely as 
amongst the English. The women are perfectly well acquainted 
with economy : they rise early, go to sleep very late, and are al- 
most over nice and cleanly in regard to the floor, which is fre- 
quently sbpured several times in me week. The servants in the 
town are chiefly negroes. Some of the inhabitants wear their 
own hair, but it is very short, without a bag or queue, which 
are looked upon as the characteristics of Frenchmen ; and as I 
wore my hair in a bag the first day I came here from Canada, I

was surrounded with children, who called me Frenchman and 
some of the boldest offered to pull at my French dress. 

" Their meat, and manner of dressing it, is very different from 
that of the English. Their breakfast is tea, commonly without 
milk. About thirty or forty years ago, tea was unknown to 
them, and they breakfasted either upon bread and butter or 
bread and aailk. They never put sugar into the cup, but take 
a small bit of it into their mouths whilst they drink. Along 
with the tea they eat bread and butter, with slices of hung beef. 
Ooflfee is not usual here : they breakfast generally about seven. 
Their dinner is buttermilk and bread, to which they sometimes 
add sugar, and then it is a delicious dish for them ; or fresh 
milk and bread ; or boiled or roasted flesh. They sometimqs 
make use of buttermilk instead of fresh milk, to boil a thin 
kind of porridge with, which tastes very sour, but not disagree- 
able in hot weather. To each dinner they have a great salad, 
prepai-ed with abundance of vinegar and very little or no oil. 
They frequentiy eat buttermilk, bread and salad, one mouthful 
after another. Their supper is generally bread and butter, and 
milk and bread. They sometimes eat cheese at breakfasi^ and 
at dinner ; it is not in slices, but scraped or rasped, so as to re- 
semble coarse flour, which they pretend adds to the good taste 
of cheese. They commonly drink -very small beer, or pure 
water." 

In 1789 a writer in the Gazette gives the following account of 
the condition and prospects of the City : "Every thinking man 
who takes a prospective view of this City and contemplates 
what it was seven or eight years ago, and what it now is, will 
be astonished at the improvements m the City and the increase 
of commerce, manufactures &c., since that period. Then some 
of the principal streets were shamefully neglected, without a 
pavement sufficient even for a foot passenger to walk on, with- 
out annoying himself with filth. We have a prospect, ere 
another year shall transpire, of seeing the principal streets not 
only comfoi'tably, but elegantly paved. In addition to which 
the wharves have been repaired and enlarged and the City 
adorned with several new private buildings which would not 
disgrace some &£ the principal cities of Europe and would 
ornament any in America. At that period a competent Eng- 
lish teacher was scarcely to be found. We now have an Acad- 
emy whict flourishes under the direction of Mr. Merchant, a 
gentleman who has always given such proofs of his abilities as 
to render encojnium eniarely superfluous. At that period not 
more than sevenlrjr, at the utmost calculation, shops and stores 
were kept in this City. Now we behold Market and State 
Streets crowded with stores, and rents in those streets enhanced 



lis Q-i. ZBTTSER OF TO WNS. 

to such a degree as to put houses out of reach of the incon- 
siderable traders. Nor had we manufactories of any kind, but 
depended on importation entirely for every manufactured ar- 
ticle. Now we see the citizens stimulated by motives of public 
spirit daily promoting them. Messrs. Stevenson, Douw & Ten 
•Eyck have erected a nail factory, in which nails of every 
description are manufactured as cheap and pronounced to be 
superior to any imported. Much praise is also due to James 
Caldwell, of this 'City, merchant, for his spirited exertions in 
promoting the manufacture of tobacco of every description, 
snuff, mustard and chocolate, for which purpose he has at great 
expense, erected mills which are ranked among the first in 
America." The tobacco factory of Mr. Caldwell is described in 
the Gazette in 1790, as follows : " The buildings belonging to 
these works extend on a line along the front about 300 feet. 
That part which contains the machinery of the mills is forty- 
two feet front. One water wheel of three and a half feet wide 
with one and a half inches water, by an upright shaft, puts in 
motion the snuff mill, which consists of four mortars, sixteen 
rollers and a snuff bolt. A mustard mill with two large rollers, 
four mortars and stampers, a charcoal mill with a run of 
stones and cocoa roaster ; an engine for cutting smoking to- 
bacco ; a machine for cutting tobacco for the snuff mill and a 
large grindstone for the use of the works. It likewise gives 
motion to an elegant colossal figure of a man, represented in 
the act of turning a winch, from which all the machinery ap- 
parently receives motion." On the 12th of July, 1794, these 
extensive works were entirely consumed by fire, together with 
stock to the value of $13,000 or $15,000. The entire loss was 
over $30,000. The works were soon after rebuilt. 

The following is from the "Kandom Recollections of Albany." 
The writer is describing the appearance about the beginning of 
the present century : " Pearl Street was in those days the west end 
of the town, for there the town ended, and there resided some 
of the most aristocratic of the ancient burghers. There a little 
after sunrise, in a mild spring morning might be seen sitting by 
the side of their doors the ancient and venerable mynheers, 
with their little sharp cocked hats, or red-ringed worsted caps 
as the case might be, drawn tight over their heads. There they 
sat like monuments of a former age, still lingering on the verge 
of time, or like milestones upon a turnpike road solus in sola, or m 
simple English unlike anything I had ever seen before. But there 
they sat smoking their pipes in that dignified silence and with 
that phlegmatic gravity, which would have done honor to Sir 
Walter Van Twiller, or even to Puffendorf himself. The whole 
line of the street, on either side was dotted by the little clouds of 



GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 113 

smoke that issued from their pipes and after curling round their 
noddles, rose slowly up the antique gables and mingled 
with the morning air, giving beauty to the scene and adding an 
air of life to the picture. But the great charm was in the nov- 
elty of the thing. I had seen a Dutch house before, but never 
till then had I seen a row of Dutchmen smoking in a Dutch 
City. Albany was indeed Dutch in all its moods and tenses, 
thoroughly and inevitably Dutch, in style, attitude and aspect. 
The people were Dutch, the houses were Dutch and even the 
dogs were Dutch. If any confirmation were wanting as to the 
origin and character of the place, it might be found in the old 
Dutch church which was itself always to be found in the middle 
of State Street, looking as if it had been wheeled out of line by 
the giants of old and there left, or had dropped down from the 
clouds in a dark night and had stuck fast where it fell. All 
the old buildings in the City, and they constituted a large ma- 
jority, were but one story high with sharp peaked roofs, sur- 
mounted by a rooster, vulgarly called a weather-cock. Every 
house having any pretentions to dignity, was placed with its 
gable end to the street with huge iron numerals, announcing 
the date of its erection, while from its eaves long wooden gut- 
ters or spouts, projected in front some six or seven feet so as to 
discbarge the water from the roof, when it rained, directly over 
the center of the sidewalk. This was probably contrived for the 
benefit of those who were compelled to be out in wet weather, 
as it furnished them an extra shower bath free of expense. But 
the Yankee, who considers that the earth belongs to him, in- 
truded into the old Dutch City, whose inhabitants awoke one 
morning to learn that he had gained a majority in the City gov- 
ernment, and then came the order with a handsaw to cut off 
those spouts." Great was the consternation of the honest burgh- 
ei 8 at this announcement, and it could hardly have been exceeded 
had they been forbidden to speak their mother tongue. But 
the Yankees continued to increase and soon their influence be- 
gan to be felt among the dogs, who "began to bark ya. broken 
English, many of them indeed had already caught the Yankee 
twang," so rapidly was the progress of refinement. In the 
course of a few years, nearly all that was venerable in the eyes 
of the ancient burghers, disappeared. 

In 1803 there was but one first-class hotel in the City, that 
was the "Tontine Coffee House," in State Street, kept by Mr. 
Gregory. This house was the resort of the respectable portion of 
the community and was always full. Here the leading politi- 
cians and distinguished men of the State congregated and laid 
their plans for future campaigns. The house nad no bar, and 



114 GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 

no liquors were furnished to any except guests of the house, 
and to those only at their meals. 

The Mohawk and Hudson Railroad, connecting the Mohawk 
and Hudson Rivers,, at Alhany and Schenectady, was the first 
constructed in the State. It was commenced in 1830, and a 
double track completed in 1833. It was originally constructed 
with an inclined plane at each end of the road, the one at Al- 
bany a little more than half a mile in length, and both of them 
having a rise of one foot in eighteen. The track was laid in 
the following manner: stone blocks were placed three feet 
apart, from center to center, laid on broken stone, and cross 
sleepers of wood, seven inches in diameter and eight feet long, 
rested upon them, supporting the timber rails, on which were 
placed iron bars, three-fifths by two and a half inches, with the 
upper comers rounded to one and a half inches width. The 
width between the rails was four feet nine inches. The road 
constructed in this manner cost $1,100,000, or over $70,000 per 
mile for the double track. The stock at one time sold for 30 
per cent, premium, and afterwards went down to 25 cents on 
a dollar. It finally passed into other hands, the inclined planes 
were abandoned, and by a more circuituous route and the use 
of heavy locomotives the road became a profitable one. In 
1843 the road was laid with heavy rail, and in 1853 it was con- 
solidated with the New York Central. 

The earliest traveled route between Albany and New York 
was by the Hudson River. For many years schooners plied at 
intervals between these two cities, and when great di^atch was 
required, a canoe was the means of conveyance. 

In 1785 the Legislature granted to Isaac Van "Wyck, Talmage 
Hall and John Kinney, the exclusive right " to erect, set up, 
carry on and drive " stage wagons between Albany and New 
York, on the east side of the Hudson River, for the term of ten 
years. The journey was at first performed in two days, at three 
pence per mile, but in the fall, " for the ease of the passengers," 
the time was extended to three days and the price raised to four 
pence a mile. They were to have at least two covered wagons, 
each drawn by four able horses, and perform the trips once a 
week, under penalty of forfeiture of charter. At this time the 
Post Office at Albany served for the adjoining towns, and for 
Orange and Dutchess Counties, Cherry Valley, &c., and letters 
■were advertised for Vermont. By the Post Office arrangements 
of January 1786, the New York mail arrived twice a week, 
Wednesdays and Saturdays. There was at this time a mail once 
a week from Springfield, Mass. Communication with the 
neighboring counties and States was kept up by post riders, who 



OAZBTTBER OF TOWNS. 116 

met at certain points and interchanged letters and papers, and 
when the business was insuflScient to pay, subscriptions were 
made among the citizens who were interested in their continu- 
ance. In^l789 a stage commenced running from Piatt's Inn, 
in Lansingburgh, to Lewis's Tavern, Albany, three times a 
week. The fare for the round trip was four shillings. In 1790 
a post left Albany on Monday afternoon and reached Schenec- 
tady the same day, Johnstown on Tuesday, Canajoharie on 
Wednesday, Fort Plain on Thursday, Fort Hunter and War- 
rensbush on Friday, and arrived at Albany on its return on 
Monday forenoon. The post to Vermont left the City Monday 
evening, arrived at Pittstown on Tuesday, at Bennington on 
Wednesday, at Little White Creek and Cambridge on Thursday, 
at Tomhannic and Schaghticoke on Friday, and at Hoosick on 
Saturday. 

In 1790 the Legislature granted Ananias Piatt the exclusive 
right of running a stage between Albany and Lansing^^urgh. 
In 1794 Mr. Piatt, " grateful for public custom," undertook to 
run his stage twice a day from Lansingburgh to Albany and 
back. In the winter of 1795' he had increased the number of 
dS,ily trips to six. In the summer of 1796 the travel had in- 
creased to such an extent as to employ twenty stages daily be- 
tween Waterford, Lansingburgh, Troy and Albany, averaging 
more than one hundred and fifty passengers daily. In 1791 the 
Postmaster General was authorized by law to extend the post 
route from Albany to Bennington, Vt., and the first mail 
reached that town on the 25th of March, the anniversary of the 
settlement of that town thirty years before. 

In 1792 some one proposed to establish a line of stages from 
Albany to Whitestown, so great had the intercourse become 
with the western country. In the spring of 1793 Moses Beal 
" erected a stage for the accommodation of passengers from Al- 
bany to Schenectady, Johnstown and Canajoharie, once a week." 
It left Albany at 6 o'clock Friday morning abd arrived at Oan- 
ajpharie the next day. It returned on Tuesday. The fare was 
three cents a mile. The success of this enterprise was so great 
that John Hudson, inn-keeper, established a line of stages to 
run from Albany to Schenectady three times a week; and John 
Rodgers, of Ballston, ran a line from that pla«e to connect 
with it, by which a regular oommunieation was first established 
for the 'convenience of those who visited the springs. The fare 
was four shillings to Schenectady and three cents a mile to 
passengers who went beyond. About this time a stage line was 
established connecting Albany with the Connecticut Kiver Val- 
ley at Northampton. A stage started from ^ch end of the 
route on Tuesdays and Fridays, in the morning, and met at 



116 OAZETTEEB OF TOWNS. 

Pittsfield in the evening, accomplishing the entire route in two 
days. The proprietors of this route, in their appeal to the pub- 
lic for patronage, remark that the diflSculty of extending a line 
of stages across the mountains had always been considered in- 
surmountable, but reflecting that such an establishment would 
cbmplete the line of an expeditious and sure communication 
from " Portland, in the province of Maine," through a rich and 
flourishing country, to Whitestown, in the western part of the 
State of New York, a distance of over four hundred miles, they 
had determined to niake the experiment. The fare was four 
cents a mile. In 1794 there were five post routes centering in 
Albany. The first, to New York once a week, stopping at the 
principal places along the east bank of the river. The second, 
north, via Lansingburh, Bennington, Manchester, Eutland and 
Middlebury, to Burlington, Vt. The third, via New Lebanon, 
Pittsfield and Northampton, to Brookfield, Mass. The fourth, 
via Kinderhook and Stockbridge, to Springfield, Mass. On 
each of these routes the mail was carried once a week. The 
fifth route was via Schenectady, Johnstown, Canajoharie, Ger- 
man Flats, Whitestown, Old Fort.Schuyler, Onondaga, Aurora, 
Scipio, Geneva and Canandaigua, once in two weeks. The fare 
to New York was this year reduced from ten to eight dollars. 

The mails during this year (1796) were carried between Al- 
bany and Philadelphia, a distance of 260 miles, in three days ; 
from Boston to Philadelphia in four days, and from Savannah 
to Philadelphia in thirteen days. By comparing the foregoing 
with the time tables of our great railroads, we can form some 
idea of the mighty progress during the last seventy-five or eighty 
years. 

The introduction of steam has changed the mode of travel on 
all the great thoroughfares. The first steamboat upon the Hud- 
son was so great a curiosity, and astonished the inhabitants as 
much as a vessel for ffirial navigation would now. 

The following description of Albany in 1789, taken from 
Morse's American Geography, gives a good idea of the City at 
that time : " It contams about 600 houses, built mostly by 
trading people, on the margin of the river. The houses stand 
chiefly on Pearl, Market and Water Streets and six other streets 
or lanes which cross them nearly at right angles. They are 
built in the old Dutch Gothic style, with the gable end to the 
street, which custom the first settlers brought with them from 
Holland. The gable end is commonly of brick with the heavy 
moulded ornament of slanting with notches, like stairs, and an 
iron horse for a weathercock on the top. There is one little 
appendage to their houses which the people, blind to the incon- 
venience of it, still continue, and that is the water gutters or 



OAZETTEEB OF TOWNS. uy 



spouts which project from every house, rendering it almost 
dangerous to walk the streets in a rainy day. Their houses are 
seldom more than one story and a half high and have but 
little convenience and less elegance ; but they are kept very 
neat, being rubbed with a mop almost every day and scoured 
every week. The same neatness however is not observed in the 
streets, which are very muddy most of the year, except those 
which are paved ; and these are seldom swept and very rough. 
The City of Albany contains about 4,000 inhabitants, collected 
from almost all parts of the northern world. As great a variety 
of languages is spoken in Albany, as in any town in the United 
States." Speaking of the people, he says : " Their diversions 
are walking and sitting in mead houses, and in mixed com- 
panies they dance. They know nothing of the little plays and 
amusements common to small social circles. The gentlemen 
who are lively and gay play at cards, billiards, chess &c., others 
go to the tavern, mechanically, at 11 o'clock, stay until dinner 
and return in the evening. It is not uncommon to see forty or 
fifty at these places of resort at the same time; yet they semom 
drink to intoxication, unless in company, or on public occa- 
sions, when it is thought to be no disgrace. They seldom 
admit many spectators to their marriages, but the day after, 
the groom prepares a cold collation, with punch, wine &c., to 
partake of which he expects all his friends will come at eleven 
o'clock without invitation. A dictator, with absolute power is 
then appointed to preside at each table or in each room, and it 
seldom happens that any are suffered to leave the house, until 
the whole circle exhibits a shocking specimen of human de- 
pravity." " The best families live exceedingly well, enjoying 
all the conveniences and luxuries of life; but the poor have 
scarcely the necessaries for subsistence." 

The Bank of Albany, the first that went into operation in 
this City, and the second one in the State, was incorporated 
April 10, 1792, and continued in existence until May 11, 1861. 
The preliminary arrangements had been made and it was de- 
cided that the capital should be $75,000, divided into 500 shares 
of S150 each ; $15 to be paid on subscribing and the remainder in 
three installments. Jeremiah Van Bensselaer, Jacob Vander- 
heyden and Barent Bleecker were a committee to opei! the 
books for subscriptions, which they did on the 17th of Febru- 
ary, and the stock was all taken in less than three hours. After 
the stock was all taken and the books were closed, offers of ten 
per cent, advance were made on the stock, and the next day it 
rose to one hundred per cent. cash. The first election of 
Directors under the charter, was held June 13th, and resulted 
as follows : Abraham Ten Broeck, Cornelius Glen, Stephen 



118 ' GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 

Van Rensselaer, John Maley, Abraham Van Veohten, Henry 
Cuyler, John Stevenson, James Caldwell, Jacob Vanderheyden, 
Goldsbrow Banyar, Jeremiah Van Rensselaer, Daniel Hall 
and Elkanah Watson. Abraham Ten Broeck was the first 
President. The act of incorporation limited the capital to 
$360,000, each share to be 400 Spanish milled dollars or its 
equivalent. In January 1794, the capital was increaaed $54,000. 
The affairs of the Bank were managed prudently for many 
years, and its stock was worth from 45 to 50 per cent, above 
par. In proportion to its capital it had more specie than any 
other bank. 

New York State Bank, the second bank in Albany, went into 
operation in 1803, with a capital of $460,000. May 10, 1804, 
the Bank commenced business in their new banking house, 
which thCT have occupied ever since. By the act of incorpora- 
tion, the Controller, together with John Taylor, Thomas Tillot- 
son, Abraham G. Lansing, Peter Gansevoort, Jr., Elkanah Wat- 
son, John E. Bleecker, Francis Bloodgood, John Eobison, Gil- 
bert Stewart, John de Peyster Douw, Richard Lush and Thomas 
Mather were constituted the first Directors. 

The Mechanics' and Farmers' Bank was incorporated in 1811, 
with a capital limited to $600,000. It has been one of the most 
successful banking institutions in the State. In 1853, on the 
second expiration of its charter, it closed up its business and di- 
vided among the stockholders fifty per cent, besides the par 
value of the stock. During the Rebellion it organized under 
the National Banking Law, but in 1868 abandoned that, and is 
now doing business under the laws of the State. 

The Commercial Bank was \ incorporated in 1825. The first 
Directors were Willard Walker, Joshua Tuffs, George W. Stan- 
ton, Lewis Benedict, William Cook, Daniel D. Gregory, Seth 
Hastings, Ira Jenkins, Joseph Alexander, Robert Gilchrist, 
Richard Marvin, John Townsend and Asa H. Center. 

The Canal Bank was incorporated in 1839, with a capital of 
$300,000. , It failed in 1848. 

The Albany City Bank was incorporated in 1834 with a capi- 
tal of $500,000. Erastus Corning was the first President, and 
Watfs Sherman, Cashier. 

The Albany Exchange Bank was incorporated in 1838, to con- 
tinue 663 years, with a capital of $311,100, with the privilege of 
increasmg it to $1,000,000. John Q. Wilson was the first Pres- 
ident. 

The Merchants Bank was organized in 1853. John Tweddle 
was its first President, and John Sill was Cashier. 



GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. i j 9 



The Union Bank -was organized in 1853. B. P. Learned was 
elected President, and A. P. Palmer, . Cashier. 

The Presbyterian Church in Albany was formed in 1763. The 
City executed » deed in trust for the congregation, to John Ma- 
comb, Daniel Edgar, Samuel HoUaday, Eobert Henry, Abraham 
Lyle and John Munro, for the ground upon which the first 
church edifice was erected. This lot was bounded by Beaver, 
William, Hudson and Grand Streets, and was occupied by the 
church until 1796. During this year a nei? church was erected 
at the corner of South Pearl and Beaver Streets, the site now 
occupied by the Beaver Block. It was 64 by 76 feet and al- 
together the finest church in the City. Oct. 3, 1798, Eev. El^- 
phalet Nott, late President of Union College, was installed pas- 
tor, and continued until he assumed the Presidency of the Col- 
lege. In 1849 a new edifice was erected on the corner of Hud- 
son and Philip Streets, and is still occupied by the society. The 
old church was occupied for several years by the Congregational 
Society. 

^^JS^ was formed from Kensselaerville, March 17, 1795. 
Knox was taken ofi" in 1822. It lies near the center of the west 
border of the County. The Helderbergh Mountains form the 
eastern border and rise to the hight of 1,200 feet above tide. 
Grippy and Irish Hill occupy the center. They are broad moun- 
tains with steep declivities and rolling summits, from 900 to 
1,000 feet above tide. The south and west parts are hilly and 
the nortli rolling. The principal streams are the Foxen Kil 
and the Switz Kil, passing through the town from the south-east 
to the north-west, and formifig a junction near the north-west 
corner. They flow through narrow valleys, bordered by steep 
hillsides. Thompson's Lake, in the north-east corner, partly in 
this town, and Werner's Lake, near East Bern, are small bodies 
of water. Numerous small caves and sink holes are found in 
the lime'rock in the north-east part. In one of the caves, stiU 
known as the " Tory's Hole," a notorious royalist spy, named 
Jacob Salisbury, is said to have been captured about the time 
of Burgoyne's invasion from the North. This cave is a semi- 
circular cavity in the cliflf, just above the road, a good view of 
which it commands. It is a single ropm, about 25 or 30 feet in 
diameter, open on one side, looking out over a block of fallen 
stone, down the wooded slope, to a road, and beyond into a 
deep valley between the mountain spurs. This was a secure re- 
treat for Salisbury for some time, and it was with diflSculty that 
his hiding place was discovered. A band of daring men pene- 
trated his secret retreat in the night, and he was forced to sur-

render. He was immediately disarmed, bound and hurried 
down the mountain. 

The soil is a sandy and gravelly loam, interspersed with clay. 
There are three mineral springs on the farm of Jacob Hochstros- 
ser, valuable for their medicinal qualities. 

Bernville, (Bern p. o.) in the north part, contains three 
churches, viz., Methodist, Eeformed and Lutheran ; two hotels, 
five stores, a grist mill, a Voolen factory, a bedstead factory, 
several other mechanic shops and about 60 dwellings. 

Peoria, (West Bern p. o.) in the north-west part, on the line 
of Knox, contains a Eeformed church, two hotels, three stores, 
a tannery and several other shops. 

South Bern (p. v.) contains two churches, viz., Methodist and 
Christian ; a store, a saw and grist mill, and 15 or 20 dwellings. 

Reidsvilie (p. v.) contains two churches, viz., Methodist and 
Christian ; a hotel, a store and about a dozen hou«es. 

East Bern (p. v.) contains two stores, a hotel, a grist mill, a 
wagon shop, a blacksmith shop and 25 houses. There is a Ma- 
sonic Lodge of 109 members. A Masonic Hall was erected in 
1869, the lower portion of which is to be used for a Union 
church. 

The settlement of this town was commenced about 1750, by 
a ■ few German families. In 1777 a company of eighty-five 
militia were raised in this town, sixty-three of whom joined the 
British, and the remainder the Americans at Saratoga. Bern- 
ville, then called Beaver Dam, was fortified during the war, and 
sentinels were posted at night to prevent surprise by the In- 
dians. The place at one time was a rendezvous for Tories. 
The family of Johannes Deitz, consisting of eight persons, were 
murdered by the Indians. Cornelius Schermerhorn kept a 
Tory rendezvous, and at one time an absconding paymaster 
from Burgoyne's army is said to have been murdered at his 
house. 

The Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of Beaver Dam was 
formed in January, 1763 ; the first settled pastor was Johannes 
Schuyler, in 1767, A parsonage farm was given to this Church 
by the Patroon, midway between Bernville and Peoria, and a 
church was erected upon it. In 1835 the society was divided 
and a new edifice was erected at each of the villages, the farm 
being held in common by both societies. 

The Evangelical Lutheran Church was organized in 1792, and 
the first house of worship was erected the same year. The 
number of members at its organization was 84 ; the present

in 1846, at an expense of 11,200. Its seating capacity is about 
300. Rev, Earl is the present pastor. 

The Methodist Church of Reidsvillew&s organized in 1841, with 
twenty members, and a house of worship was erected the same

mons is the present pastor. The bouse of worship will seat 300 
and cost $2,200. 

The Christian Church of Seidsville vra,s organized in 1832 with 
twelve members. The first pastor was Rev. Levi Hathaway. 
A house of worship was erected in 1832 ; it will seat 300 and 
cost $2,000. The present pastor is Rev. D. P. Warner. 

The Second Christian Church of Bern was organized in 1834 by 
Lewis H. Taylor, with twelve members. Anouse of worship 
was erected {he same year, seating 400. The first pastor was 
Rev. Stephen Hitchcock ; the present pastor is Rev. D. Warner. 
The present membership is 180. 

The Second Reformed Chmrch was organized in 1853 with 80 
members. The present house of worship was erected the same 
year and will seat 300. The present membership is 104. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 2,851, and its area 
39,962 acres. 

The town contains 21 school districts, employing the same 
number of teachers. The number of children of school age is 
973 ; the number attending school, 774 ; the average attendance, 
304, and the amount expended for school purposes for the year 
ending September 30, 1869, was $5,540.73. 

BETHLEHEM yi&% formed from Watervliet, March 12, 
1793. New Scotland was taken off in 1832, and a part of Alba- 
ny in 1870. It lies on the bank of the Hudson, east of the cen-

ter of the County, and includes the islands west of the main 
channel of the river. Its surface consists of a rolling upland, 
ending upon the river in steep blufifs from 100 to 150 feet in 
hight. A few sand ridges and rocky knolls occupy the central 
part. The principal streams are Coeymans Creek, Vlaman'g 
Kil and Norman's Kil. The declivities of the upland are brok- 
en by numerous deep guUeys, worn from streams flowing into 
the Hudson. There are several small caves, sulphur springs and 
quarries of coarse brown sandstone in the town. The soil con- 
sists of sand and clay. The proximity of a large portion of this 
town to Albany has afforded a market for produce, and consid- 
erable attention is paid to the production of milk, butter and 
garden vegetables for that market. 

Kenwood is a small village near the mouth of Norman's Kil. 

Adamsville, (Adams Station p. o.,) Normanskill (p. o.,) Bethle- 
hem Center (p. o.,) Cedar Hill (p. o.,) Upper Hollow, Slingerland's, 
Becker's Corners and South Bethlehem are han^lets. 

Callanan's Corners, in the south-west corner, is a post office. 

The first settlement was made upon Castle Island in 1614, 
and a fort was erected the same year. As this island was liable 
to overflow, causing great damage, another fort was erected on,, 
the Norman's Kil in 1817. The island was leased to Martjn 
Gerritsen, in 1668, and is sometimes called after his name. It 
is now known as Van Kensselaer's Island. One of the early 
settlers of this town was Albert Andriessen Bradt de Noorman, in 
honor of whom Norman's Kil was named. He had eight 
children. Tradition says that one of them was born on board 
the ship wnile coming over, during a storm, and hence was 
called " Storm von der Zee." He came over in 1630 and leased 
the water privileges of the Norman's Kil, and was succeeded in 
1672 by his son Albertsen, who paid $150 a year. He was suc- 
ceeded by his brother Slingerland, in 1677, as lessee of the farm 
which his father had occupied on this stream. He died June 
7th, 1786. Many of his descendants are still in Albany and 
vicinity. The Indian name of this stream was Ta-wal-son-tha. 
Mills were built on this stream at a very early day. A part of 
the house known as " Whitehall," near the Delaware Koad, was 
built by General Bradstreet, and during the Eevolution is said 
to have been a secret rendezvous for Tories. Cherry Hill, on 
the Eiver road, just beyond the City limits, was the residence of 
General Solomon Van Rensselaer. 

A Refortned Protestant Dutch Church was formed in colo- 
nial times, and in 1794 S. Van Eensselaer gave the society 100 
acres of land, known as the " Parsonage Farm."

The First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem was organized Nov. 
3d, 1835, by Kev. Dr. Campbell and Rev. W. R. Davis. It con- 
sisted of 53 members. The firstpastor was Rev. Wm. P. Davis, 
Who was ordained and installed Dec. 1st, 1835. The first house 
of worship was erected the game year at a cost of $1,800. It 
was enlarged and refitted in 1869 at a cost of $4,000. It will 
now seat about 300. The present membership is 106 ; the pres- 
ent pastor is Rev. J. W. Edie. The society own a good parson- 
age, and are now in a flourishing condition. 

COEYMAN8 was formed from Watervliet, March 18, 
1791. A part of Westerlo was taken off in 1815. It was 
named in honor of Barent Coeymans, the patentee. It is the 
south-east corner town of the County, and includes the ad- 
jacent islands in the Hudson. , Its surface consists of an upland 
from 200 to 400 feet above the river, broken by ridges and hills 
rising from 100 to 400 feet higher. The principal streams are 
the Coeymans and Haanakrois Creeks. In the former, at 
Coeymans village, are two falls, at which the stream descends 
in the aggregate 75 feet. Lawson's Lake is a small sheet of 
water in the north-west part of the town. A stratum of 
marble or limestone extends through the town three or four 
miles from the river. In the north-east part are two caves, the 
largest extending about forty rods into a perpendicular ledge. 
Feuri-Spruyt Kil, a small stream in the north part, disappears 
and flows for half a mile in a subterranean passage, and comes 
to the surface again in New Scotland. At the place where the 
stream disappears it falls perpendicularly into a deep cavity, 
forming a considerable water power. Another small stream m 
the west part flows in a similar manner for forty or fifty rods. 
There are several mineral springs in town impregnated with 
sulphate of magnesia. The soil in the east part is sand mixed 
with clay, and in the west part gravel and clay. The fossil re- 
mains of an elephant were found on the farm of Mr. Shears, 
about four miles west of the river. Large quantities of hay 
are sent annually from this town to the New York market. 

Mossy Hill, near the south-west part of the town, received 
its name from its mossy cover. la 1838 a quarry of blue stone 
was opened here, and ever since large quantities of this stone 
have been shipped to various parts of the country. 

Coeymans Landing, (Coeymans p. o.,) on the Hudson, in the 
east part of the town, at the mouth of Coeymans Creek, con- 
tains three churches, viz., Methodist, Reformed and Roman 
Catholic; a newspaper office, an academy, two hotels, four 
broom factories, a flouring and plaster mill, several stores, 
groceries and mechanic shops, and about 700 inhabitants.

The Coeymans Academy was established in 1858 by Fletcher 
Blaisdell, Theophilns Civill and Peter Seabridge. The first 
teachers were Misses C. B. and Emma Brace. It is open to 
both sex^ and is now under the control of Thomas McKee. 
About half a mile south of the village, at the mouth of Haana- 
krois Creek, is the paper mill of Eobb ,& CaroU. It was estab- 
lished in 1832, and turns out about $30,000 worth of straw 
wrapping paper annually. 

Coeymans Hollow (p. o.) is a thickly settled public road in the 
valley of Haanakrois Creek, and contains a Methodist church, 
two stores and about 40 houses. 

The Valley Mills Paper Manufactory of Andrews & Briggs is 
located in tiie west part of this valley. The mills were estab- 
lished in 1847 by J. E. Andrews, and in 1854 were rebuilt and 
enlarged by the present proprietors. They are run by water 
and steam, and contain two 300 pound engines and two 400, 
and one 36 inch and one 48 inch cylinder machinea. 

Indian Fields, (p. o.) in the west part, contains a hotel, a store, 
a foundry, a woolen mill, a saw mill, two wagon shops, two 
blacksmith shops and about fifteen houses. 

Slephensville, in the south-west part, on Haanakrois Creek, 
contains a church, a grist mill, a wagon and blacksmith shop, 
and fifteen houses. 

Kee/er's Corners (p. o.) is a hamlet containing a Methodist 
church, a blacksmith shop and a store. The place was named 
in honor of Balthus Keefer, who settled afthis place in 1791. 
There were but two settlements in this part of the town at that 
time. They had no wagons and their roads were traced by 
marked trees. 

The first settlement was made by Barent Pieterse Coeymans, 
who came from Utrecht in 1636 and immediately entered the 
service of the Patroou as miller, at a salary of thirty guilders a 
year. Three brothers accompanied him, viz., David, Jacob and 
Arent. Barent worked in the Patroon's grist mill until 1645, 
when he took charge of the Patroon's saw mills, in company 
with Jan Gerritsen, receiving 150 guilders each a year for board, 
and three stivers a cut for every plank they sawed. He re- 
mained in this employment until 1647, having cut in that time 
between three and'four thousand boards Previous to 1650 he 
lived a little south of Patroon's Creek, and in 1655 took a nine- 
teen years lease of a farm of " maize land " at twenty-four guild- 
ers a year. In 1657 he took a lease of the mills on Patroon's 
Creek for three years, and in 1660 he leased the mills on the 
Norman's Kil for thirteen years. About the time this lease ex-

pired, in 1673, he purchased from the Katskill Indians a large 
tract of land, about twelve or fifteen miles south of Albany. It 
had been known as offering peculiar advantages for the erection 
ofmills, Cryn Cornelissen and Hans Jansen having erected 
saw mills on the creek just north of i^eeren Island as early as 
1651. Coeymans obtained of Governor Lovelace a patent of a 
tract eight or ten miles on the river and extending back ten or 
twelve miles. But this tract falling within the bounds of 
Rensselaerwyek, Coeymans purchased the Patroon's claim, agree- 
ing to pay a quit-rent of nine shillings a year. In 1714 he ob- 
tained from Queen Anne' a patent of this tract, confirming the 
whole to him and his heirs forever. The Indian name of Coey- 
mans Creek was Oniskethau, and the flats at Coeymans Land-' 
ing were called Achquetuck. Andreas and Lendert Whitbeck 
were early settlers near the Landing, and Daniel Ti^aver and 
Balthus Keefer, near Keefer's Corners. John and Thomas 
Whitbeck settled near Indian Fields. Among the other early 
settlers were the Verplanks, Ten Eycks, Vanderveers and David 
McCarley, who surveyed Countryman's Patent. 

The first mills were erected by the patentee at Coeymans 
Falls. A small number of Indians belonging to the Oneida 
tribe lived in this town after the Revolution. They removed 
and returned in 1813 for a short time. Among the records of 
the town is an account of ten pounds in 1792, for erecting stocks 
and a whipping-post. 

John B. Shear was born in this town in 1803 and has resided 
here ever since. He was elected to office before he was twenty- 
one years of age, and has held office almost every year since that 
time. He has kept a hotel and store for the last 43 years and 
ie one of the most respected and influential men of the town. 
He is still in the vigor of manhood and has a prospect of many 
years of usefulness before him. 

The first church (Ref. Prot, Dutch) was built in 1797, one 
mile west of Coeymans Landing. The Church was organized 
March 5, 1793 ; Rev. Jacob Sickles was the first pastor. 

The First Methodist Church was organized in 1788 or '89 by 
Rev. John Crawford, the first preacher. He formed a class of 
twelve members. Rev. Freeborn Garretson was presiding Elder. 
The first church edifice was built of stone, in 1793, and located 
about two and a half miles west of Coeymans. It is said to have 
been the first Methodist church built west of the Hudson 
River. The first trustees were James Waldron, Lewis Civill, 
WilhoUamas Row, Jacob Springsted, Isaac C. Huyck, Ephraim 
Holbrook, Peter Hogan, Nathan Williams, James Selkirk. Levi 
Blaisdell was the first clerk, and Lewis Civill was the first sex-

ton. The following are the names of some of the early mem- 
bers, viz: Hugh Jolly, Samuel Jolly, John Ten Eyck and wife, 
Levi Blaisdell and wife. Dr. Clement, Hugh Crumb, James Sel- 
kirk and Jacob Springated. A new church edifice was erected 
in 1836, and dedicated by the Kev. Benjamin Griffin, The 
building is of brick, 40 by 50 feet, with a lecture room, of wood, 
26 by 40. The present membership is 100. The M. E. Church 
at Ooeymans Hollow has a membership of 350. 

The Reformed Church, was organized in 1793. The first 
church edifice was located one mile west of Ooeymans Landing. 
A large brick church was subsequently erected at the village. 
Eev. Jacob Sickles was the first pastor. 

There are six churches in the town, viz: three Methodist, 
one Reformed, one Christian and one Roman Catholic. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 3,264, and its area 
30,740 acres. 

There are 14 school districts, employing the same number of 
teachers. The number of children of school age is 1,017 ; the 
number attending school, 710 ; the average attendance, 325 ; and 
the amount expended for school purposes during the year end- 
ing Sept. 30th, 1869, was $4,738.02. 

COHOES CITY was formed from Watervliet, and in- 
corporated as a City by act of the Legislature, passed May 19, 
1869. It was incorporated as a village in 1848. It lies upon 
the Mohawk River, near its junction with the Hudson, and has 
one of the finest water powers in the world. The facilities for 
transportation by land and water are unsurpassed by any 
manufacturing city in the United States. The Erie Can^ 
aflfbrds direct communication with the western country and the 
great lakes ; the Champlain Canal opens an easy communica- 
tion with Lake Champlain and all parts of Canada, and with 
the Hudson River to New York and the Ocean. The Rens- 
selaer and Saratoga Railroad, and the Troy and Schenectady 
branch of the N. Y. C. R. R., extend through the City. 

The Cohoes Falls is a cataract with a perpendicular fall of 
about fifty feet. Below the Falls the river flows through a deep 
gorge whose perpendicular walls rise on each side to the bight 
of nearly one hundred feet. A dam has been erected across 
the river above the Falls, and the water is conveyed by canals 
to convenient places for manufacturing purposes. The surface 
of the land is such that the water in some instances is used as 
many as six times. 

The manufacturing is extensive, and consists of six extensive 
cotton mills, running 203,000 spindles, eighteen large knitting 



QAZBTTEEB OF TOWNS. 127 

mills, two foundries, three machine shops, a rolling mill, two 
ax factories, a planing mill, a sawing and veneering establish- 
ment, and manjr other large and flourishing establishments. 
The City contains about 300 stores of various kinds, six 
churches and a population of about 16,000. 

The following are the boundaries of the City, as set forth in 
the act of incorporation : — 

" Sectioit 1. The territory within the following limits shall 
constitute the City of Cohoes : Commencing at a point in the 
center of the south branch of the Mohawk River, in the town 
of Watervliet, and county of Albany, immediately east of the 
south line of the farm owned by Cornelius L. Tracy and Sarah 
M. Gould; thence westerly along said line to the center of the 
Erie Canal, thence northwardly along the center of said canal 
to the north line of said farm, thence westerly along 
said north line to the west boundaries of said farm, thence in a 
direct line to the west line of the highway near the 
residence of Francis T. Lansing in said town, at a point 
immediately west of the center of the bridge over the 
Saut Kill or Salt Kill at that point, thence northwardly 
along the west line of said highway to its intersection 
with the highway leading from Cohoes Falls to Ihe Boght, 
thence north until it strikes the boundary line between the 
farms of Isaac D. F. Lansing and Sarah Miller, thence along said 
boundary line north-easterly to the easterly line of the Erie 
Canal, thence northwardly along said line of the Erie Canal to 
a point where it strikes the line between the lands of the Cohoes 
Company and said L D. F. Lansing, thence northeasterly along 
said last mentioned line in a direct line to the boundary line be- 
tween the counties of Albany and Saratoga, thence easterly 
along the said center of said Mohawk River, which is said bound- 
dary line between the counties of Albany and Saratoga to and 
along the center of the Sprout of said Mohawk River, flowing 
between Haver and Van Schaicks Island to the boundary line 
between the counties of Albany and Rensselaer, in the Mohawk 
. River, thence southwardly along said last mentioned line to a 
point in Hudson River east of the mouth of the middle sprout 
of the south branch of the Mohawk River, thence westerly along 
the center line of said middle sprout or water course, to the 
center of said south branch, thence southerly along the cen- 
ter of the same to the place of beginning." Tnig includes Van 
Schaick's Island. 

The history of Cohoes as a village and city is the history of 
its manufactories. The earliest accounts which we have of this 
locality have reference to the Falla Rev. Johannes Megapo- 



138 OAZETTXEB or TOWNS. 

lensis, who came to Albany in 1643, as pastor of the Beformed 
Dutch Church, in speaking of the Mohawk River says : 

" Thia river conies out of the Mahakas country about four 
miles north of us. There it flows between two high rocky 
banks, and falls from a hight squd to that of a church, with 
such a noise that we can sometimes heaj it wfth us." * * * 
" In the spring, in May, the perch are so plenty that one man, 
with a hook and line can catch in one hour as many as ten or 
twelve men can eat There is also in the river a great plenty 
of sturgeon, which we christians do not eat, but the Indians 
eat them greedily." 

In 1680, Jasper Bankers and Peter Sluyter, members of the 
Society of Labadists in Holland, came here to find a suitable 
place tor a colony of their sect. They visited the Falls ApriJ 
33, and gkve the following account : 

" Mr. Sanders having provided us with horses, we rode out 
about nine o'clock to visit the Cohoes which is the Falls of the 
great Maquaskil, which are the greatest falls not only in New 
Netherlands but in North America, and perhaps as far as is 
known in the whole New World. We rode two hours over 
beautiful level tillable land along the river, when we obtained a 
guide who. was better acquainted with the road through the 
woods. Sfe rode before us on horseback. In approaching Co- 
hoes from this direction the roads are hilly, and in the course 
of half an hour you have steep hills, deep valleys and narrow 
paths which run round the precipices, where you must ride 
with care in order to avoid the danger of falling over them as 
sometimes happens. As you come near the falls you can hear 
the roaring which makes everything tremble, but on reaching 
them and looking at them you see something wonderful, a 
great manifestation of God's power and sovereignty, of his 
wisdom and glory. We arrived there about noon. They are 
on one of the two branches into which North River is divided 
up above, of almost eqiual size. This one turns to the west 
out of the high land and coming here finds a blue rock which 
has a steep side as lon^as the river is broad, which is acpording 
to my calculation two hundred paces or more, and rather more 
than less, and about one hundred feet high. The river hai 
more water at one time than another, and was now about six 
or eight feet deep." 

Upon the approach of Burgoyne, in the summer of 1777, 
General Schuyler retired to Van Schaick's Island and threw up 
fortifications to check the advance of the enemy, who threaten- 
ed from the north and the west. After the retreat of St. Leger 
from the siege of Fort Stanwix, no further trouble was appre- 
hended from the west by way of the Mohawk Valley, and Gen. 



GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 139 

Gates, who ha4 Buperseded Gen. Schuyler in command of the 
Northern Army, advanced into Saratoga County, where he suc- 
ceeded in capturing Burgoyne and his whole army. The re- 
mains of some of the earthworks upon the island are still 
visible. 

Previous to 181X the present site of the City was a barren 
tract of land, bordered by one of the finest water-powers in the 
world, and known only to the world at large through the won- 
ders and beauties of the surrounding scenery, as depicted by 
travelers whom circumstances compelled or curiosity prompted 
to visit the vicinity. 

The first extensive attempt at manufacturing here was made 
by the "Gohoes Manufacturing Co." in 1811. The Company 
was incorporated " for the purpose of manufacturing cotton, 
woolen and linen goods, bar iron, nail rods, hoop iron and iron- 
mongery." The works were erected at the junction of the 
Champlain Canal with the Mohawk River, and the water-power 
was supplied by a wing dam extending (nto the river. The fac- 
tory was burned in 1827 and the corpofatioa, failed. In 1830 
the population of Cohoes was chiefly at what wa/the junction 
of the Erie and Champlain Canals. In 1831 Mr. Hugh White 
built a saw mill upon the present site of one of the HariSbny 
Company's buildings. At this time there was neither post- 
office, church, tavern or store, in what is now the principal 
manufacturing portion of the City. The nearest post-oflBce was 
at Waterford, and the nearest church was at the " Boght." Mr. 
Wilkinson, from Pawtucket, Khode Island, was one of the pio- 
neer manufacturers of Cohoes. He was at one time the largest 
manufacturer in the place, but finally moved away. * 

The Cohoes Company was incorporated March 38, 1826, with 
a capital of $350,000, which was increased to $500,000 A^ril 26, 
1833. The first trustees were Peter Remsen, Charles E. Dudley, 
Stephen Van Rensselaer, Jr., Francis Olmstead, Canvass White, 
Henry J. Wyooff and David Wilkinson, The Company now 
owns the entire water-power from half a mile above to one mile 
below the Falls, with a total fall of 120 feet A dam was built 
across the river in 1831, but it was carried away in 1832. An- 
other was immediately constructed which was partially destroy. 
ed in 1839 and rebuilt the same year. The present stone dam 
was constructed in 1865 and is one of the most costly and sub- 
stantial structures of the kind in the world. It is 1,443 feet in 
length and, with its appurtenances, cost $180,000. The engi- 
neer of this work was Wm. E. Worden, assisted by D. H. Van 
Auken. The work was done under the supervision of Mr. T. 
G. Younglove, the agent of the Company. The water is used 
from five successive canals, at different levels, and is again used 



130 OAZBTTEER OF TOWNS. 

from the level of the State Dam. The first of these canals was 
constructed in 1834, and is three-fourths of a mile in length, 
and has a fall of eighteen feet. The second was constructed in 
1843, is one-third of a mile in length and has a fall of 35 feet. 
The third is half a mile in length with a fall of 23 feet. A part 
of the last two consist of portions of the old Erie Canal. The 
fourth and fifth canals have a fall of 20 feet each, and are only 
partly constructed. The entire power is estimated at 10,000 
horse-power, only about one-half of which is utilized. 

The Harmony Mills Company was organized in 1850 and 
incorporated in 1853. This Company purchased the mill that 
had previously been erected by the " Harmony Manufacturing 
Company," and engaged in the manufacture of cotton goods. 
They have at present five mills, known as Nos. 1, 2 and 3, "Old 
Harmony," « Ogden " and « Strong " mills. No. 1 is 550 by 70 
feet, four stories high, and was built in 1852. No. 2 is 660 by 
75 feet, and three stories high. It was built in 1857 and en- 
larged in 1866. No. 3 is 675 by 70 feet, five stories high, and 
was commenced in 1866 and finished in 1869. The " Old Har- 
mony Mill" is 150 by 50, and four stories high; the "Ogden" 
is 500 by 50, and five stories high, and the "Strong Mill" 200

town of the County. Its surface consists of a high plateau 
region, broken by a few small hills. Its eastern part constitutes 
a portion of the Helderbergh region, but the declivities are 
gradual' and give the surface a moderate inclination towards the 
north and west. The principal streams are the Bozen Kil, form- 
ing a part of the eastern boundary, and its branches, and the 
Poxen Kil and Beaver Dam Creek in the south part. There 
are two caves, supposed to be of considerable extent, about one

spectively one-eighth and one-half mile under ground. Streams 
flow through each of them. The outlet of Lawson's Lake, in 
the south-west part, about a mile from the lake, falls into a deep 
cavity and flows for half a mile in a subterranean passage, and 
in its course receives a considerable tributary. Within this cav- 
ity are found beautiful stalactites and thousands of bats cling- 
ing to the walls and roof. At the northern foot of Copeland 
Hill, near the same locality, are remarkable sink holes, from, 
five to eight feet in diameter, and extending down through the 
soil and Time rock, to the depth of from ten to twenty feet. 
These cavities are connected at the bottom by a subterranean 
stream. This passage has been explored and is found to con- 
tain several rooms of considerable size. Some years ago a no- 
torious thief used this cavity as a depository for stolen goods, 
and for a long time eluded the vigilance of those who were 
searching for him. He was at length tracked to his hiding 
place and the existence of the cavity was made known. The 
soil is a gravelly loam mixed with clay. The Albany and Sus- 
quehanna, and the Hudson and Saratoga Railroads extend 
through the north-east part of the town, the latter connecting

OtiesquethoM Church (Reformed,) was organized in 1824 by 
Thomas Holiday, and a house of worship was erected the next 
year. The present membership is 88. The present pastor is 
Kev. Mr. Millspaugh. The present house of worship will seat 
250 and its estimated value is $2,000. 

The house of Henry Perry, on the Helderbergh Hills, near 
Wolf Hill post office, was built by Nicholas Perry, Henry's 
grandfather, before the Kevolution. It is built of hewn stone, 
and is still in good preservation. Isaac Perry, the great grand- 
father of Henry, was one of the first settlers in the County. 
He emigrated from France, lived here the rest of his life, and 
his remains were buried on the old farm. 

From the Helderbergh Hills, just above the village of New 
Salem, one of the most lovely prospects can be seen ; the eye 
ranging over a vast extent of as beautiful farming country as 
can be seen anywhere in the State. The country around 
clothed with the green verdure of spring, the trees in all their 
lovely foliage, the neat white farm houses here and there dot- 
ting the landscape around, surrounded with orchards, which, at 
the time of the year we visited it, were loaded down with 
blossoms, evidences of a coming bountiful fruit harvest, the 
roads threading their way in serpentine form all over the 
country, all these made the scene one of the most delightful it 
has ever been our lot to look upon. From this point can be 
seen the villages of New Salem and New Scotland, and some 
ten or twelve miles in the distance, on clear days, the" City of 
Albany, West Albany, as well as Troy and Greenbush. The 
Green Mountains can also be distinguished, also fogs rising 
along the Hudson Eiver. Five railroads can be clearly seen 
from this point, viz., the Hudson and Saratoga, Albany and 
Susquehanna, Hudson River, N. Y, C. and Troy and Boston. 
At night the lights in the City of Albany are clearly seen. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 3,311, and its area 
61,711 acres. 

There are fifteen school districts whose school houses are in 
this town, employing the same number of teachers. The num- 
ber of children of school age is 1,058 ; the number attending 
school 717 ; the average attendance 286, and the amount ex- 
pended for school purposes during the year ending September 
30, 1869, was 14,540.24. 

BEHSSELABRVILLB, named from the Van Rens- 
selaer family, was formed from Watervliet, March 8, 1790. Bern 
was taken off in 1795, and a part of Westerlo in 1815. It is the 
south-west corner town of the County. Its surface is mostly up-

land, broken by parallel ridges extending north and south, and 
rising from 400 to 600 feet above the Yalleys, The principal 
streams are Catskill Creek and its tributaries, Scrub, Fox, Ten 
Mile and Eight Mile Creeks, and Willow Brook. The valleys 
of these streams are narrow and are bordered by steep hill sides, 
and the streams are rapid and subject to destructive freshets. 
Upon Ten Mile Creek, near Eensselaerville, is a fall of one 
hundred feet, and upon Willow Brook is another of forty feet. 
Bog iron ore has been found in the east part. There is a sul- 
phur spring two and a half miles north-east of Preston Hollow. 
The soil is a clay and gravel, underlaid by hardpan. 

Bensselaerville, (p. v.,) situated in the east part of the town, on 
Ten Mile Creek, contains four churches, viz., Methodist, Pres- 
byterian, Baptist and Episcopal, a select school, a hotel, several 
stores, a grist mill, a saw mill, a woolen mill and about 700 in- 
habitants.

1868. The mill has a capacity to make 250 reams per day, and 
runs a 36 inch cylinder machine and two 24 inch engines. 

Preston Hollow, (p. v.,) on Catskill jGreek, near the south-east 
part, contains two churches, viz., Baptist and Methodist, a 
hotel, t^o stores, two tanneries, one for sole leather and the 
other for upper ; a foundry, a gristmill, a saw mill, two black- 
smith shops, a wagon shop, a harness shop, two cooper shops, 
four shoe shops and about 1855 inhabitants. The village re- 
ceived its name from a family of early settlers. 

Cooksburgh, (p. v.,) in the south-west part of the town, con- 
tains two hotels, two dru^ stores, two dry goods stores, a grist 
mill, a cider mill, a flax mill, a blacksmith shop and about 100 
inhabitants. 

Potter's Hollow, (p. v.) in the south-west part, contains a 
Friend's meeting house, a hotel, a store, a wagon shop, a black- 
smith shop and fifteen families. 

Smith's Corners, on the east border of the town, is a hamlet.

This town was settled chiefly by immigrants from New Eng- 
land soon after the ReTolution. Michael Brandt, a German 
fi-om Schoharie County, lived in the town during the war. At 
the time of the Indian incursion into Bern, Mr. Brandt had 
gone to Catskill Landing, leaving his family alone. The sav- 
ages on their return passed close by with their scalps, prisoners 
and plunder, but offered no molestation. 

About the year 1785 John Coons, from Columbia County, 
squatted on what is now lot 168. This was before the land was 
surveyed. The same farm is now occupied by Jeremiah Coons 
and his sister, grand children of the first settler. At the time 
of his settlement there was only one house where the village of 
Rensselaerville now stands. 

Silas Sweet came from West Stockbridge, Mass., in lt91, and 
located about a mile east of Rensselaerville. His son, John 
Sweet, who was then eleven months old, is still residing in 
Rensselaerville and retains his mental and physical powers to a 
good degree. Several others of the same family came in soon 
after. 

ApoUos Moore, from Pittsfield, Mass., settled about two miles 
east of Rensselaerville, in 1785. He came on foot, while his 
wife rode a horse which cost five dollars, and carried all their 
property. Mr. Moore afterwards became justice of the peace, 
supervisor, and finally first Judge of the County, an office 
which he held until he was nearly seventy years old. He had 
a store at his farm, and a large mill in the village. He was a 
soldier of the Revolution, having enlisted when he was sixteen, 
and served till the close of the war. He died in 1840 at the 
age of 76. 

Gerardus Drake, from Dutchess Co., settled near Potter's Hol- 
low in 1803 ; John Drake came in 1808. He was an influential 
man and prominent among the Friends. Abram and Jeremiah 
Young, and Aaron Winnie, from Ulster Co., came about 1790. 
Stephen Treadwell, an eminent minister, came in 1816. Daniel 
and Josiah Conklin, from Long Island, were among the early 
settlers. Daniel engaged in tanning and shoe manufacturing, 
and became wealthy. They located for a time with Reuben 
King, who lived about two and a half miles west of where they 
located. Joseph Lincoln, John Rensier, and several brothers 
named Hatch settled in the town about 1787. One of them 
built the house which for many years was known as the " Hatch 
House." 

The first settler in the village of Rensselaerville was Samuel 
Jenkins, who came here Feb. 22, 1788^ and in the following 
April erected the first dwelling house in the place, and after- 
wards the first mill. Daniel Shay, the leader of what was called 



144 OAZBTTEEB OF TOWNS. 

" Shay's Eebellion," moved to this town in 1795. Major John 
Edwards, a Eevolutionary officer was also a settler in this town. 

The first church, Presbyterian, was organized in 1793. Kev. 
Samuel Fuller was the first pastor. The first Sabbath spent in 
the town was April 14, 1793, when he made the following re- 
oord in his journal : " This i^ a new settlement and they have 
no meeting house. The trustees applied to me to preach for 
them for three Sabbaths longer, which I agreed to do." In 
November he received a unanimous call to settle at this place. 
He was to receive £100 settlement and £50 a year till it makes 
£80." The ordination took place Jan. 23, 1794. In a sermon 
delivered by his son he says : " The services were held in a log 
building occupied temporarily as a meeting house which stood 
in the south-west corner of what was afterwards my father's 
orchard. It was originally a dwelling house of two rooms, but 
by removing the chimney and putting a rude pulpit in its stead 
on the western side, it was converted into a place of worship. 
The day of the ordination was stormy and the snow driven 
through the crevices, so wet the hands of Mr. Judson, the 
ordaining minister, that the print of his thumb still remains 
upon the Bible used on the occasion." In February Mr. Fuller 
removed his family to this town, and "from the eighth of Febru- 
ary to the 10th of April, he lived in a house with Mr. Samv|«;l 
Nichols which stood on a spot about one-third of a mile north 
of what has long been called the "^ Eed House," west of my fath- 
er's late residence. The building was a log cabin of two small 
rooms, with a trough roof. The apartment occupied by my fath- 
er's family had but one window, and that contained only four 
lights, covered with oiled paper instead of glass, and was so 
contracted that after meals they were obliged to put the table 
upbn the bed, and the only space allowed nim for a study was 
the corner of the room, where a boai'd laid upon the head of a 
barrel served him for a writing desk. The country being new 
and furniture not easily obtained, the cradle for their child was 
the half of a basswood log hollowed out for that purpose. In 
the spring he removed from his uncomfortable quarters at Mr. 
Nichols' to what is now the middle room of the house for many 
years occupied by Matthew Mulford." The first house of wor- 
ship was erected in 1796. Mr. Fuller continued pastor of this 
Church for sixteen years, at the close of which he united with 
the Episcopal Church and became the founder of 

The Episcopal Church in Eensselaerville. It was organized 
February 20, 1811. Services were held in the chamber of Kufus 
Watson's house until the fall of 1812. The first wardens were 
Jacob Wood and Allen Durant, and the vestrymen Asa Colvard, 
Jonathan Jenkins, Josiah Watson, Jesse Hollister, Ezra Lester,

Apollos Moore, Elijah Griggs and Ichabod Peck. The first 
church edifice was consecrated October 24, 1815, and cost about 
$3,000. The present edifice will seat about 300 and is valued 
at $6,000. The following is the inscription upon Mr. Fuller's 
grave stone :

cluded the West District of the Manor of Rensselaerwyck. 
The Manor was divided into the East and West Districts, 
^March 5, 1779, the river being the separating line. The West 
District, as defined by act of March 24, 1772, embraced all that 
part of the Manor north of an east and west line from Beeren 
Island, north to Cumberland Co., except the City of Albany. 
'Rensselaerville was taken off in 1790, Coeymans in 1791, Beth- 
lehem in 1792, Gdiilderland in 1803 and Niskayuna in 1809.

chiefly an upland from 200 to 300 feet abore the river. The 
declivities of this upland are broken by numerous guUeysworn 
by the small streams. A fine interval, nearly half a mile in 
width, extends along the Hudson. The Erie Canal crosses the 
Mohawk at the northern limit of the town, in a stone aqueduct 
1,137} feet in length, twenty-six feet high and supported by 
twenty-six piers. The soil is a rich deep alluvium upon the 
river and flats, and a light sandy loam upon the upland. Sul- 
phur and chalybeate springs and bog iron ore are found in the 
town. The quarries of graywacke furnish an excellent flagging 
and building stone. 

West Troy, (p. v.) in the east part part of the town, was in- 
corporated April 30, 1836. It is a manufacturing village and 
is engaged extensively in the lumber trade. The Erie and the 
Champlain Canals and the Hudson River afford communication 
by water to all parts of the country. The Eensselaer and Sara- 
toga Eailroad extends through the village, and it is connected 
with Albany by horse railroad, and with Troy by ferries. It 
contains eight churches, viz.. Baptist, Episcopal, two Methodist, 
two Eeformed, and two Eoman Catholic ; a bank, a newspaper 
printing ofiBce, an extensive bell foundry, various other manu- 
factories and about 12,000 inhabitants. 

The United States Arsenal at this place occupies about one, 
hundred acres. The grounds are chiefly inclosed by a high 
wall and contain a number of shops and storehouses. This 
establishment was commenced in 1814 under Col. George Bom- 
ford, of the Ordnance Department. It was for many years the 
principal manufactory of gun carriages, machines, equipments, 
ammunition and military supplies for the troops and forts of 
the United States. During the late war a very large number of 
persons were employed and a vast amount of the munitions of 
war were manufactured. The workmen are chiefly citizens 
residing in the vicinity. 

The village is built on land formerly held by the Bleecker 
family. It was purchased by a company of Troy capitalists 
and laid out as a village, and has mostly grown up since th^ 
completion of the canals. 

Oreen Island (p. v.) was incorporated October 14, 1853. It 
contains four churcnes, viz., Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal

siderable lumber trade is carried on. It is connected with 
Troy by a bridge, over which the cars of the Rensselaer & Sara- 
toga and the New York Central Railroads pass, both of which 
roads have stations here. The bridge contains also a drive for 
carriages and foot passengers. It is connected with Troy and 
Cohoes by horse railroad.

The Shaker Settlement, in the west part of the town, consists 
of four families, nnmberffag about 300 persons and living in a 
manner peculiar to their sect. The following account of their 
origin, doctrines &c., was furnished by one of their number : 

" Their founder was Ann Lee, of Manchester, England, who 
settled in the town of Watervliet in the year 1775. Her re- 
mains lie in the Shaker Village of this County. She and her 
followers are remarkable for their extreme divergence from 
what is popularly termed " Christianity." Ann Lee announced 
the second appearance of the Spirit of Christ in her person, 
testifying that the Godhead being male and female, so also is 
the Christ spirit male and female. She established four funda- 
mental principles for her followers to build upon, viz.. Com- 
munity of goods ; a celibate life ; non-resistance, freedom from 
war in any shape ; distinction of government, freedom from the 
strifes of political parties. Her followers maintain these prin- 
ciples strictly. They do not believe that Jesus was bom the 
Christ, but became so at his baptism, they believe he was then 
Jesus Christ. So of Ann Lee, they do not worship her any- 
more than they do Jesus, they respect both as agents of the Al- 
mighty. They believe all wul become Christ's when fitted by 
self-denial. They dance in their worship, evincing a jubilee in 
consequence of their victory over the world, claimiiig to be the 
end of the world after the manner of Jesus' words, 'Ye are they 
upon whom the ends of the world have come.' Immense crowds 
from all parts of the country and from Europe congregate at 
their place of worship to witness their dancing and hear their 
singing and speaking. Their present expositor is G. Albert 
Lomas. They are large landholders, having about 2,500 acres. 
Farming, gardening and mechanical pursuits are prosecuted by 



148 GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 

them. Their village, composed of four families, contains about 
three-fourths of a million dollars worth of real estate. Their 
houses are substantially built and present a beautiful appear- 
ance. The present oflScers, male and female, are : D. A. Buck- 
ingham and Elizabeth Harrison, presiding elders at the Church 
Family ; Sylvester Prentiss and Sarah A. Van Wyck, ditto at 
the North Family; Jeremiah Lowe and Paulina Bates, ditto at 
the West Family; with G-. A. Lomas and Harriet Bullard, the 
acting corresponding elders of the South or Novitiate Order. 
All persons admitted enter the last order. The business super- 
intendents of the Church Family are ChauncCT Miller and Ly- 
dia Annis; North Family, C. Copley aoid Harriet Ingham; 
West Family, Alex. Youngs and Nancy Wicks ; South Family, 
Galen Eichmond and Mary Ann Ayers ; Clarissa Shufelt, Janet 
Angus, society physicians. They number nearly 300, females 
slightly predominating. They depend upon accessions from 
without their own order for their numerical strength. Prob- 
ably a more peculiar sect does not exist than these highly re- 
spected but very eccentric people." 

Water and steam power are abundaiut for all manufacturing 
purposes. There are four ponds with an area of ten acres each, 
having an average fall of twelve feet. 

Watervliet Center (p. o.) is a hamlet.

The Albany Rural Cemetery was incorporated April 20, 1841, 
and the site selected April 30, 1844. The premises were dedi- 
cated October 7 of the same year. The Cemetery is located 
among the hills west of the Troy and Albany Road, about four 
miles from the City* The grounds contain over 200 acres, are 
finely laid out and co:ntain many elegant monuments. A sta- 
tion of the Rensselaer and Saratoga R. R. ie near the entrance. 
The imj)rovement8 made every year add to its beauty, and it 
bids fair to becowe one of the finest rural cemeteries in the 
country. Its variety of surface, hill and dale, ravine, dell, ponds 
and cascades, are attractions rarely seen of equal extent upon 
grounds devoted to the burial of tn.e dead. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 27,275, and its area 
33,817 acres.

7,400 ; the average attendance 2,759, and the amount expended 
for school purposes during the year was $67,292.03. 

WESTMBLO, named from Rey. Eilardus Westerlo, of 
Albany, who came from Holland in 1760 as pastor of the Re- 
formed Dutch Church, was formed from Coeymans and Rens- 
gelaerville, March 16, 1815. It lies upon the south border of 
the County, near the center. Its surface is broken and hilly, 
with a general southerly inclination. The highest point in the 
northerly part of the town is 800 feet above tide. The hills are 
very steep and irregular, and the valleys are mere narrow ra- 
vines. The streams are Haanakrois, Basic, Wolf, Fly and Eight 
Mile Creeks and their branches. These are all rapid streams 
and are liable to severe freshets. The soil is a sandy and gravelly 
loam, interspersed with clay and underlaid with hardpan. There 
are several fine quarries in the town, from which flagging stones 
are taken. 

Chesterville, (Westerlo p. o.,) named in honor of Rev. John 
Chester, formerly pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, Albany, 
is about a mile north Of the center of the town, on Basic Creek, 
and contains two churches, viz., Baptist and Reformed; two 
hotels, four stores, a wagon shop, two blacksmith shops, a cooper 
shop, a harness shop,, a shoe shop, two undertakers and about 
215 inhabitants. About half a mile north of the village is the 
cheese factory of James A. Sloan. The building is 26 by 50 
feet, with a wing 10 by 20. 

Dormansville, (p. v.,) named in honor of Daniel Dorman, is 
located in the east part of the town and contains a Methodist 
church, a hotel, a store, a wagon and blacksmith shop, and 9 
houses. 

South Westerlo, (p. v.) in the south part of the town, on Basic 
Creek, contains a Christian church, a hotel, two stores, a grist 
mill, a saw mill, a woolen mill, a wagon shop, a blacksmith 
shop, a harness shop, a shoe shop and about 100 inhabitants. 

Lamb's Corners and Van Leuven's Corners are hamlets. 

The settlement of this town commenced previous to the 
Revolution. Among the early settlers were Nicholas Stoddard, 
Philip Myers, Lodowick Haynes, William Haverland, Josiah 
Hinckley, a Revolutionary soldier, William Bird and his 
brother, James Arnold, Jacob Haynes, Abram Becker, Andrew 
Hannay and Rev. Reuben Stanton. Mr. Stanton was one of 
the first surveyors and received as compensation for his services 
100 acres of land. , . 

Philip Myers, the first settler, was born in Germany, Sept. 
22, 1744. in 1753 he came with his father to America and 



150 GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 

landed at New Baltimore, Greene Co. Leaving tlje vessel they 
went into the country in search of a location, and stopped for 
a time with Andreas Whitheck, an early settler of Coeymans. 
In the fall Mr. Myers left his son Philip, to return to Germany 
for the rest of his family, but was never heard of afterwards. 
Philip being thus bereft of his father, remained with Mr. 
Whitbeck until 1763, when he located on the present site of 
the village of Ohesterville, erected a log house and kept bach- 
elor's hall for two years, when he married a daughter of Nicho- 
las Stoddard, who had settled there. After the commencement 
of the Eevolution the Indians and Tories became somewhat 
troublesome, requiring him to be on the watch to avoid a sur- 
prise. Owing to the unsettled state of affairs, he took his 
family to Dutchess Co., where they remained until the close of 
the war, when they returned to their old home and remained 
there until their death. Mr. Myers died April 13, 1813, and 
his wife Oct. 23, 1833. The farm is now occupied by their 
grandchildren. 

Andrew Hannay, another of the early settlers, was a native of 
Galloway, Scotland, born in 1733. He learned the coopers' 
trade and worked at that for some time, but at the age of 34 he 
enlisted in the 51st Regiment of Infantry and served in the 
King's army six years. The original discharge is now in the 
hands of his youngest son, David Hannay. In 1774 he came to 
America, landing in New York with only four shillings. He 
immediately obtained employment for himself and wife, where 
he continued for some time. His great desire appears to have 
been to obtain land for himself and his children. After trying 
his fortune in various places, he at length settled in Westerlo, 
on the farm now occupied by his youngest son, David Hannay. 
In 1777 he raised a company of volunteers to join Gen. Gates, 
but on reaching Albany and learning that Burgoyne had sur- 
rendered, the company was disbanded and returned to their 
homes. 

Isaac Winston', a Revolutionary soldier, settled a little east of 
Ohesterville. During the war he was taken prisoner and held 
for eighteen months. Stephen Mabey located on lot 337. Dr. 
Jonathan Prosser, from Dutchess County, settled in 1788 on 
the farm now occupied by his son, John Prosser. He was a 
skillful physician and had an extensive practice. Josiah Hinck- 
ley, a Revolutionary soldier, settled in 1783 on the farm now 
owned by his grandson, Charles Hinckley. At this time there 
were but eight families in the town. 

ApoUos Moore, afterwards first judge of the County, taught 
school in 1788. Robert 0. K. Bemet taught a school in 1790.

152 SCHENECTADY COUNTY. 



SCHENECTADY COUNTY. 



THIS COUNTY was formed from Albany, March 7, 
1809. It is centrally distant twenty miles from Albany and 
contains 231 square miles. The greater part lies between Scho- 
harie Creek and Mohawk Eiver, only one town lying north of 
the Mohawk. The surface consists of the flats along the Mo- 
hawk, and an upland, generally broken by ridges and isolated 
hills from 200 to 35.0' feet above the river. The highlands are 
the northern continuation of the Helberbergh and Schoharie 
Mountains. The shales of the Hudson Eiver group constitute 
the principal underlying rocks which crop out in the valleys 
and in the bottom of the ravines. In portions of Glenville and 
Duanesburgh this rock is underlaid by birdseye limestone, from 
which are obtained lime and building stone. The greater part 
of the surface is covered with a thick deposit of drift, consisting 
chiefly of clay in the west part, and sand in the east. The rocks 
crop out on the banks of the streams and form the declivities 
of the steeper hills. The soil in the west part is a tenacious 
clayey loam, underlaid by hardpan on the hills, and in the east 
it is light, sandy and of poor quality. The valley of the Mo- 
hawk consists of a deep rich alluvium, well adapted to tillage 
and extensively devoted to the cultivation of broomcorn. It is 
said that one-half of the entire broomcorn crop of the State is 
raised in this County. A large part of the broomcorn land is 
annually overflowed, rendering it very fertile. Many tracts 
have produced this crop for many years in succession. 

The principal streams are Mohawk River, Schoharie Creek 
and Norman's Kil, and their tributaries. The valleys of these 
streams are generally bordered by the steep declivities of the 
uplands, rising to the hight of about 300 feet. Many of the 
smaller streams have worn deep gulleys in the loose drift de- 
posits, giving the surface a very broken character. Many of 
these streams are dry in summer. The alluvial flats near 
Schenectady, and extending west about five miles on the south 
side of the river, were called by the first settlers "TheBouw- 



SOHENEOTADT COUNTY. 153 

land," or arable land. A tract two miles in extent, north of the 
river, was called the,"Maalwyck," meaning Whirlback, from the 
tortuous course of the Mohawk. A tract on both sides of the 
river, about four miles west of the City, was called " Woestina," 
meaning Wilderness. A region in the immediate vicinity of 
Schenectady was called " Oron-nygh-wurrie-gughre," and the 
hills were known as the "Yan-ta-puch-a-berg,'' which is a mix- 
ture of Indian and Dutch, meaning "John-ear-of-corn-hill." 
The hills on both sides of the river, above the City, were called 
" Tou-ar-e-u-ne." The streams of " Woestina," were « WerfKil," 
or Paint Creek, " Zantzee Kil," or Sea Sand Creek, and " Eighel- 
brigh Kil," or Railbridge Creek. 

The valleys are well adapted to tillage, but the hills are bet- 
ter for pasturage. The Mohawk Valley was formerly noted for 
its large wheat crops, but there is much less raised now than 
formerly. The manufactures of the County are confined chiefly 
to the City of Schenectady. 

The County Seat is located at Schenectady. The Court House 
is a substantial brick edifice, located on Union Street, and con- 
tains the court room, jail. Sheriff's ofiBce and Supervisors' room. 
The County Clerk's office is a small fire proof building, a short 
distance from the Court House, on the same street. The Sur- 
rogate's office is in the same building. The work of preparing 
the foundation of an enlargement to this building has already 
commenced, and when completed according to the present plan, 
the building will be one of the most commodious and conveni- 
ent of any in the State, considering the size of the County, and 
highly creditable to the enterprising portion of the County, 
through whose efforts the improvement has been accomplished. 
The building when completed will be 60 by 36 feet, and two 
stories high. On the first floor will be the Clerk's office, 30 by 
33 feet, and the Surrogate's office. On the second floor will be 
the Surrogate's court room, Supervisors' room and a room for 
the Library. The lower rooms will be fire-proof and all warmed 
by a heater in the cellar. The extreme hight of the building 
above the side-walk will be forty-five feet, and its value when 
completed will be about $25,000. 

Tkf Alms House is located on a farm in the east part of the 
City. The greatest number of inmates at any one time during 
the last year was 78, and the least number 64. There were five 
deaths and one birth during the year. The whole expense of 
supporting the poor of the County during the last year was 
$10,291.10, and the weekly expense of supporting each was 12.22. 
The rent of the farm is estimated at $400. 



154 SOHBNEOTADT COUNTY. 

The County have a Fair and Parade Ground of about thirty 
acres, surrounded by a high, substantial and tight board fence, 
a short distance from the business portion of the City. The 
County laid out about $10,000, and the County Agricultural 
Society about $1,500. Sheds and other buildings have been 
erected, and a drive of a half a mile laid out upon the grounds. 
When the improvements are completed according to the present 
plan, Schenectady will have one of the finest grounds for fairs 
and military parades in the State. 

The first newspaper published in the County was 

The Western Spectator, issued previous to 1807. 

The Schenectady Cabinet was commenced in January 1809, by 
Isaac Eiggs. In 1850 it passed into the hands of S. S. Kiggs, 
who continued it until 1857.

merhom. 

The Schenectady County Whig was issued in 1830 by C. G. & 
A. Palmer, and was continued until 1834. 

The Schenectady Standard was published in 1831 by T. J. 
Sutherland. • 

The Schenectady Democrat was begun in 1838 by 0. G. & A. 
Palmer. T. W. Flagg became the publisher in 1837, and the 
same year the name was changed to 

The Befiector and Schenectady Democrat. It was successively 
published by G. Yates, E. H. Kincaid, A. A. Keyser and Fred. 
W. Hoffinan, and others, until May 1867, when it was purchased 
by J. J. Marlett and its name changed to 

THE SCHENECTADY REFLECTOR, under which title 
it is still published by Mr. Marlett. 

The Censor was published in 1834 by the students of Union 
College. 

The Parthenon was published monthly by the students of the 
College in 1846-7. 

The Mohawker was published in 1835 by Riggs & Norris. 

The Protestant Sentinel was commenced in 1835 by Rev. John 
Maxson, and continued two years. 

The Wreath was started in 1835 by W. H. Burleigh, and con- 
tinued one year. 



SCBENECTADT COUNTY, 155 

Freedom's Sentinel was issued during the campaign of 1840, 
by Stephen S, Riggs. 

The Antiquarian and General Review was a monthly, started 
in 1845 by Eev. W. Arthur, and con'tinued two years. 

The Scroll w^s published a short time in 1849. 

The Schenectady Morning Star was started February 34, 1854, 
by W. M. Chadbourne and W. N. Clark. It was soon after 
changed to 

THE SCHENECTADY EVENING STAR. In September 
1865 it passed into the hands of J. J. Marlett, the present pub- 
lisher. 

The Schenectady Daily News was started April 1859 and dis- 
continued soon after. 

The Schenectady Republican was started in 1857 by Colbourne 
& Landon. In 1867 it was merged in the Reflector. 

THE SCHENECTADY DAILY UNION was started in the 
fall of 1865 by Charles Stanford, the present publisher. 

THE SCHENECTADY WEEKLY UNION is issued from 
the same ofiBce. 

THE WEEKLY GAZETTE was started May 13, 1869, by 
Walter N. Thayer. In January 1870 it passed into the hands 
of James H. Wiseman, the present publisher. 

The public works of the County are the Erie Canal, which 
crosses the Mohawk in the north part of the town of Niskayuna, 
and thence extends along the valley, through Schenectady and 
Rotterdam; the New York Central Railroad, including the 
Troy and Schenectady Branch, the Saratoga and Schenectady 
Railroad, the Saratoga and Hudson and the Albany and Sus- 
quehanna Railroads, all extend through some part of the 
County. A railroad from Schenectady, connecting with the Al- 
bany and Susquehanna, in the town of Duanesburgh, is soon to 
be built, forming a direct communication with Binghamton and 
the great coal region of Pennsylyania. A survey of a route 
from Schenectady to Ogdensburgh has already been made, and 
a favorable report rendered as to its feasibility. This, when 
built, will open a large extent of country that has not hitherto 
had any communication by rail with the rest part of the State. 

The settlement of this County was commenced in 1661. The 

treat flat upon the Mohawk, embracing the present site of 
chenectady, was purchased of the natives in 1661, by Arent 
Van Corlear. The grantors of this tract were four Mohawk 
chiefs, named Cantuque, Sonareetsie, Aiadane and Sodackdrasse. 
' The grant was confirmed the next year, and in 1664 the tract 



156 SCBENECTADT COUNTY. 

was surveyed. The inhabitants of Fort Orange, wishing to 
monopolize the trade with the Indians, required from the set- 
tlers a written pledge to abstain from trading with them, before 
the land was received from the Surveyor. A remonstrance 
against this was signed by the'following early settlers, viz : A. 
Van Corlear, Phihp Hendrickson, Sanders Lendertsen Glen, 
Simon Volcrertsen, Pieter Soghmaekelyk, Teunis Cornelissen, 
Marte Comelise, William Teller, Bastiaen De Winter for Catalyn, 
widow of Arent Andries de Voss, Pieter Jacobse Borsboom, 
Pieter Danielse Van Olinda, Jan Barentse Wemp and Jaques 
Cornelise. It was under the charge of five Commissioners until 
November 1, 1684, when Governor Dongan granted a patent 
confirming previous rights and extending the territory so that 
it embraced Schenectady, Glenville, Eotterdam and a part of 
Niskayuna. William Teller, Kyer Schermerhom, Sweer Tuni- 
son, Jan Van Eps and Myndert Wemp were appointed Trustees 
under this grant. In 1702 R. Schermerhorn became sole trustee, 
and in 1 705 a new patent was issued, confirming certain town- 
ship privileges. On the 23d of October, 1765, the place was 
created a borough with the rights and privileges incident to 
those corporations. 

In 1690 a party of between 200 and 300 French and Indians 
left Montreal for the purpose of making an attack upon Fort 
Orange. The weather was very cold and the party experienced 
extreme hardships, being compelled sometimes to " march up to 
their knees in water and to break the ice with their feet in or- 
der to find solid footing." About four o'clock in the afternoon 
of February 8th, after a march of 17 days, they arrived within 
about six miles of Schenectady, where they made a halt and 
were harangued by the great Mohawk Chief of the Iroquois. 
At eleven o'clock they came in sight of the town and resolved 
to defer the assault until two o'clock in the morning, but the 
intense cold admitted of no further delay. 

" The town of Corlear (Schenectady) forms a sort of oblong 
with only two gates, one opposite the road we had taken, the 
other leading to Orange, which is only six leagues distant. 
Messieurs de Sainte Helene and de Mantet were to enter at the 
first which the squaws pointed out, and which in fact was 
found wide open. Messieurs d'Iberville and de Montesson took 
the left, with another detachment, in order to make themselves 
masters of that leading to Orange. But they could not dis- 
cover it and returned to join the remainder of the party. A 
profound silence was everywhere preserved until the two com- 
manders who separated at their entrance into the town for the 
purpose of encircling it, had met at the other extremity. The 
signal of attack was given Indian fashion and the entire force 



SCBENEOTADT COUNTY. 157 

rushed on simultaneously. M. de Mantet placed himself at the 
head of a detachment, and reached a small fort where the gar- 
rison was under arms. The gate was burst in after a good deal 
of diflBculty, the whole set on fire and all who defended the 
place slaughtered. The sack of the town began a moment be- 
fore the attack on the fort. Few houses made any resistance. 
M. de Montigny discovered some which he attempted to carry 
sword in hand having tried the musket in vain. He received 
'two thrusts of a spear, one in the body and one in the arm. 
But M. de Sainte Helene having come to his aid, effected an 
entrance and put every one who defended the place to the 
sword. The massacre lasted two hours. The remainder of the 
night was spent in placing sentinels and in taking some re- 
pose. The house belonging to the minister was ordered to be 
saved, so as to take him alive to obtain information from him, 
but as it was not known it was not spared any more than the 
others. He was slain and his papers burnt before he could be 
recognized. At daybreak the same men were sent to the 
dwelling of Mr. Coudre (Sanders), who was Major of the place 
and who lived at the other side of the river. He was not will- 
ing to surrender and began to put himself on the defensive 
with his servants and some Indians, but it was resolved not to 
do him any harm, in consequence of the good treatment that 
the French had formerly experienced at his hands. M. d'lber- 
ville and the great Mohawk proceeded thither alone, promised 
him quarter for himself, his people and his property, whereupon 
he laid down his arms, on parole, entertaining them in his fort 
and returning with them to see the commandants of the town." 

The houses had already been set on fire, and none were 
spared except one belonging to Coudre, and that of a widow 
who had six children, whither Montigny had been carried 
when wounded. Sixty men, women and children were put to 
death, some of them m the most barbarous manner. Twenty- 
seven were taken prisoners and fifty or sixty escaped. The loss 
in houses, cattle and grain, was estimated at more than four 
hundred thousand livres. The enemy took away with them 
fifty horses, only sixteen of which reached Montreal, the re- 
mainder having been killed for food on the road. 

The settlement at this time consisted of about eighty houses, 
nearly all of which were burned. A few of the inhabitants es- 
caped to Albany, the nearest place of refuge, and gave the alarm. 
The fear of an attack upon that place prevented as vigorous a 
pursuit of the enemy as would otherwise have been made. A 
small force sent in pursuit were compelled to return on account 
of the deep snow and the excessite cold. 



158 SCHENECTADY COUNTY. 

The place was never visited by a hostile enemy after 1690, 
but the Fort was kept up, provision having been frequently 
made for rebuilding and repairing the same. During the Revo- 
lution the place was garrisoned at the public expense, and many 
families from the upper Mohawk sought protection from the 
incursions of Tories and Indians. A large number of friendly 
Oneida and Tuscarora Indians, driven from their homes, were 
supported in this vicinity at the public expense, for several 
years succeeding 1779. 

After the return of peace the settlement shared in the general 
prosperity. The improvements of the Western Inland Naviga- 
tion Company gave a new impulse to trade by enabling larger 
boats to navigate the Mohawk. The Company cleared the river 
of impediments as much as possible, built a lock at Little Falls, 
and in 1796 constructed a canal between the Mohawk and Wood 
Creek, leading into Oneida Lake, thus opening communication 
by water with the chain of lakes in the interior of the State, and 
with Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence. The boats were pro- 
pelled up stream by setting poles, and were floated down by the 
current. The navigation of the Mohawk was entirely abandoned 
on the completion of the Erie Canal. The railroads centering 
in Schenectady afford unusual facilities for communicating 
with all parts of the State. 

The following account of an expedition of the French " into 
ye terrytoryes of His Eoyal Highnesse the Duke of Yorke in 
America," IS taken from "Documentary Histor^," the principal 
change being in the orthography : 

" On the 29th of December Monsier Coarsell the Governor of 
Canada, in New France, began his march with nearly six hun- 
dred men, to seek out their inveterate enemies called the Mo- 
hawk Indians in their own country and forts, there to take re- 
venge upon them for the several murders and spoils which the 
barbarians had for many years exercised in Canada upon the 
French, and the Indians of those parts even to the ruin of most, 
but to the insufferable discouragement of all those inhabitants, 
who being taken alive were usually tortured and eaten, or burnt 
by the Mohawks. _ If not taken they lived in perpetual alarms 
to see their dwelling houses burnt, their cattle and corn de- 
stroyed. All which powerful arguments furnished the French 
with heat enough to march over the frozen lake of Canada, and 
taking their time that the snow upon the ground was hard 
frozen (though in most places four feet deep,) made use of In- 
dian snow shoes which have the form of a racket tied to each 
foot, whereby the body and feet are kept from sinking into the 
snow, and because it was not possible for horses to pass or sub- 
sist in the snow, or for the soldiers to carry their necessary pro- 



8CHBNECTADT COUNTY. 159 

visions on their backs, and had less expectation to meet with 
any relief in the vast wilderness, the Governor caused slight 
sledges to be made in good number, laying provisions upon them, 
drew them over the snow with dogs, all these difficulties put to- 
gether impeded his march, and by the mistake of his guides 
happened to fall short of the castles of the Mohawks, and to 
take up his quarters, or rather encamp upon the 9th of February 
within two miles of a small village called Schonectade, lying 
within the woods beyond Port Albany in the territories of his 
Royal Highness, and three days march from the first castle of 
the Mohawks." 

The French supposed they had arrived at their place of 
destination, and encountering a party of Mohawks who, under 
the appearance of retreating, drew a party of sixty French 
fusileers into an ambuscade of about two hundred Mohawks 
stationed behind the trees. At the first fire eleven Frenchmen 
were killed, one of whom was a lieutenant, and several others 
wounded. The French party immediately fell back upon the 
main body, giving the Mohawks an opportunity to escape with 
three killed and six wounded. The Indians immediately re- 
ported this encounter to the Commissary of the village, bring- 
ing with them as trophies the heads of four Frenchmen. The 
news was immediately sent to Albany, and the next day three 
of the principal inhabitants were sent to the Governor of 
Canada to inquire as to his intention in bringing such a body 
of armed men into the dominions of His Majesty of Great 
Britain, without acquainting the Governor of these parts of 
his designs. Governor Coursell replied that he came to seek 
out and destroy his enemies, the Mohawks, without the inten- 
tion of visiting their plantations or of molesting any of His 
Majesty's subjects, and that he had not heard of these parts 
being reduced to his Majesty's subjection. He desired that he 
and his soldiers might be supplied with provisions for their 
money, and that his wounded men might be taken to Albany 
and cared for. To all of this the Embassy sent from Albany 
assented, and made him a small present of wine and pro- 
visions, and offered him the best accommodations afforded. 
These he declined, as there were not accommodations for his 
soldiers, with whom he had marched and camped for six weeks. 
He could more easily keep his soldiers from straggling, as they 
feared the Indians on every side. The next day the wounded 
were sent to Albany. The Dutch inhabitants of Schenectady 
supplied the French with peas, bread and such other provisions 
as they could spare. The Molaawks had gone to their castles, 
and the French, with a show of marching against them, in 
reality directed their course to Canada. 



160 SCHENECTADY COUNTT. 

" Upon the 12th of February, whether a panic fear, mutiny 
or the probability of the thawing of the lake caused this sudden 
retreat, which the Indians called dishonorable, I cannot learn, 
but surely so bold and hardy an attempt, all things considered, 
has not happened in any age. All which vanished like false fire 
and gave new courage to their old enemies, the Mohawks, who 
by their spies, hearing of the retreat of the French pursued 
them to the lake, but the French making greater speed, did not 
suffer serious damage from the pursuit, losing only three pris- 
oners, one of whom the Mohawks put to death at his own re- 
quest, as he was unable to march. Five others who perished by 
cold and hunger were scalped and left where they fell. Those 
who observed the words and countenance of Monsieur Coursell, 
saw him disturbed in mind that the King was master of these 
parts of the country where he expected to find the Dutch in- 
terest the uppermost, saying that the King of Bngland-did grasp 
at all America, but he did not believe to see the Dutch the mas- 
ters ere long. He inquired what garrison or what fort was at 
Albany, and was told that a captain and sixty English soldiers 
with nine pieces of ordnance in a small fort of four bastions, 
and that the captain thereof, Captain Baker had sent twenty 
men from another garrison of the King at Sopes, who probably 
might be in Albany at the same time, thus finding nis men 
tired, the Mohawks resolute and something doubtful without 
trial of the good will of the English garrison because the reports 
were strong that the French King and the States of Holland ' 
were united against his Majesty of England. Monsieur Cour- 
sell found it reasonable to return home, nothing effected, the 
two prisoners taken by the Mohawks in the retreat tell them 
that this summer another attempt will be made upon their 
country with a greater force and supplies of men, the truth or 
success of which I shall not now discourse upon, having given 
the true relation of what passed from the 29th of December to 
the 12th of February." 

Though one of the smallest counties in the State, Schenecta- 
dy has steadily progressed in population and in all the entei^ 
prises of the age. The first railroad in the State connected Al- 
bany and Schenectady, and was built about 1830. In 1832 a 
railroad was built to Saratoga ; in 1835 to Utica ; in 1843 t6 
Troy; and in 1868 to Athens. Other roads are projected and 
will be built in due time. The plank road mania, that pre- 
vailed to such an extent about twenty years ago, was participat- 
ed in by the inhabitants of this County, but, as in other parts, 
the roads have been abandoned. 

The call of President Lincoln, April 15, 1861, for 75,000 vol- 
unteers, was responded to by the citizens of Schenectady, who 



SCHENEOTADr COUSTT. 16 1 

_ 

held a meeting on the '"evening of the 19th, when forty-seven 
men enrolled tlieir names to an application to be organized into 
a company. The Company was organized the next day with 
William Seward Gridley, Captain; and Daniel Daley, First 
Lieutenant. It was attached to the Eighteenth Eegiment upon 
its organization, May 11th, and designated as Company A. It 
numbered 74 besides the oflBcers, 60 of whom were from the 
City. The Regiment was commanded by Col. Wm. A. Jackson. 
The Company was in the first battle of Bull Run, and in several 
other engagements, remaining in the service two years. About 
the first of May another company was organized and officered 
by Capt. Stephen Truax and First Lieutenant William Horsfall. 
It numbered 78 men and was attached to the Eighteenth Regi- 
ment as Co. E. Captain Truax resigned soon after on account 
of ill health, and Lieutenant HorsfaU was promoted to the com- 
mand. He. led the Company in the various battles fought by 
the Army of the Potomac, and was killed at South Mountain, 
while cheering his men on to the conflict. Another company 
was organized about the same time as those already mentioned, 
and officered by Captain B. M. Van Voast and Lieutenants M. 
V. V. Smith and E. B. Van Voast. It was attached to the 
Thirtieth Regiment. These three companies were organized in 
answer to the first call, and previous to the battle of Bull Run. 
Many persons belonging to this County attached themselves to 
other organizations. We have no means of determining the 
number of men who enlisted from this County during the war, 
but the several calls were responded to with a readiness that 
showed that Schenectady was not behind the other counties in 
furnishing men and means to crush out the most gigantic re- 
bellion the world ever saw.

GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 



DJJANESSTJRGM, named in honor of James Duane, 
the principal proprietor, was erected as a township by patent, 
March 13, 1765. It was first joined with Schoharie as "the 
united district of Duanesburgh and Schoharie." It was made 
a separate district March 24, 1773, and was firsl recognized as 
a town March 22, 1788. It lies in the south-west corner of the 
County. The surface consists of an upland, broken by the 
narrow valleys and gulleys of small streams. Schoharie Creek 
forms a portion of the west boundary, and Norman's Kil flows 
through the south part. The hills which border upon these 
streams are steep and in some places rocky. The other prin- 
cipal streams are Corry's Brook, Chuctennnda Creek and Bozen 
Kil. Maria Pond and Featherston Lake are two small sheets 
of water in the north-east part, about 250 feet above thte canal. 
The soil is a stiff clay loam with a slight intermixture of gravel. 
It is better adapted to pasturage than to tillage. The Albany 
& Susquehanna Railroad extends through the south part of 
the town. 

Duanesburgh, (p. v.) in the south-east part of the town, con- 
tains a hotel, two stores, several mechanic shops, and about a 
dozen dwellings. 

Quaker Street, (p. v.) in the south part, contains three churches, 
a hotel, several stores and mechanic shops, and about 30 dwell- 
ings. 

Mariaville, (p. v.) in the north-east part, on Maria Pond, con- 
tains two churches, two hotels, several stores, mills and me- 
chanic shops, and about 20 dwellings. 

Braman's: Corners, (p. v.) in the west part, contains two 
churches and about a dozen dwellings. 

Eaton's Corners is a hamlet in the west part. 

The settlement of this town commenced about the time of its 
organization in 1765, though large tracts had previously been 
purchased by different parties. Mr. James Duane purchased a 



OAZBTTBER OF TOWNS. 163 

tract of about 60,000 acres, and contracted with twenty Ger- 
mans from Pennsylvania, sixteen of whom came on and made 
permanen't settlements. The lands were leased for about fifteen 
dollars per hundred acres, on long leases. The agents of Sir 
William Johnson excited a prejudice against these lands and 
somewhat retarded their settlement. 

The first church (Prot. Epis.) was organized Aug. 3, 1795, 
and the church edifice was erected by Judge Duane. Eev. Da- 
vid Belden was the first rector. 

The Presbyterian Church of Mariaville was organized as a Ee- 
formed Protestant Dutch Church, July 19, 1842, and was re- 
organized as a Presbyterian Church, June 15th, 1859. The 
number of members at its organization was 28. The first pastor 
was James Donald. The first house of worship was erected in 
1842 at a cost of $2,000; its present value is $3,000. It will 
seat 300. Kev. David Lyon is the present pastor. The mem- 
bership is 69. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 3,099, and its area 
42.392 acres. 

There are 21 school districts, employing 22 teachers. The 
number of children of school age is 1,073 ; the number attend- 
ing school, 796 ; the average attendance, 386, and the amount 
expended for school purposes for the year ending September 30, 
1869, was $5,267.91. 

GLENVIIiLE, named in honor of S. L. Glen, the pat- 
entee of the township, was formed from Schenectady, April 14, 
1820. It lies on the north bank of the Mohawk, and is the on- 
ly town in the County, on that side. The central and west parts 
are occupied by rugged and wooded hills, rising abruptly from 
the valley of the river to a hight of 300 feet.. The east part is 
nearly level. The principal streams are Crabbs Kil, Chaugh- 
ta-noon-da, Aalplaats and Jan Wemps Creeks, and Verf Kil. 
The soil among the hills is a stiff clay, underlaid by hardpan, 
with an accasional outcrop of slate ; and in the east part it is a 
sandy and gravelly loam. The Mohawk Flats are very fertile and 
devoted to a great extent to raising broom corn. The N. Y. C. 
R. E. and the Schenectady and Saratoga R. R. extend through 
the town. 

Glenville, (p. v.,) in the north-east part, contains two churches 
and about 20 dwellings. 

Beeseville, (Scotia p. o.,) in the south part, near the river, con- 
tains two churches and about 300 inhabitants. 

High Mills, in the north-east part, is a hamlet, containing a 
woolen factory and several mills.

Hoffman's Ferry (p. o,,) is a station on the N. Y. C. K. E. A 
ferry was established here in 1790, by Hermanns Vedder. It 
was called Vedder's Ferry until 1835, when it was bought by 
John Hoflfman and reoeiTed its present name. 

East Olenville (p. o.,) is in the east part of the town. 

Bridges connect this town with Schenectady and Niskayuna. 

Settlements were commenced about 1665 and were among the 
earliest in the County. The country around Scotia was granted 
to Sanders Lendertsen Glen, a native of Scotland, who removed 
to Holland in 1645 on account of religious persecutions. After 
several years spent in mercantile pursuits, he removed to this 
country. Van Slyck's Island was granted to Jaques Van Slyck, 
in 1662. A party of Frenchmen sent against the Mohawks be- 
came reduced to such extremities on arriving at this place, as to 
seek assistance from the English. They were so kindly treated 
by Mr. Sanders at this time, that when the country was invaded 
in 1690, and Schenectady destroyed, Mr. Sanders' house was 
spared. Several of his descendants still reside in the town. 

The First Reformed Church of Olenville was organized in 
April 1813, with twenty members, and a house of worship was 
erected about the same time. Rev. Peter Van Zandt was the 
first pastor. The original cost of the church was about $2,000. 
It was extensively repaired in 1837 and will seat about 450. 
The present pastor is Rev John Miner. The society con- 
template erecting a new church during the present year, at a 
cost of $10,000 or $15,000. 

The Methodist Episcopal Church of West Glenville was or- 
ganized in 1822 with seventy members. The first pastor was 
Rev. Roswell Kelly. The first house of worship was erected in 
1833, and the present house in 1842. The present pastor is 

Rev. Patterson. The church will seat 250 persons and is 

valued at $2,500. 

The population of Glenville in 1865 was 3,038, and its area 
29,653 acres. 

There are 14 school districts, employing the same number of 

teachers. The number of children of school age is 1,020 ; the 

number attending school 708 ; the average attendance 313, and 

the amount expended for school purposes for the year ending 

^September 30, 1869, was $6,319.33. 

HTSKATUIfA was formed from Watervliet, (Albany Co.,) 
March 7, 1809. A part of Schenectady was annexed in 1853. It 
lies u_pon the Mohawk, in the east part of the County. Its surface 
is chiefly upland, terminating in steep bluffs upon the river 
valley. The river flats are very fertile and productive. A strip 



OAZtlTTEES OF TOWNS. 165 

of land about a mile wide, extending back from the bluffs, has 
a hard clay soil and much*of it is swampy and unfit for culti- 
vation. Further south the soil is sandy. 

Niskaywna, (p. o.) in the south-east corner, is a hamlet. 

The first settlement of this town was commenced about 
1640. Among the early settlers were the Clutes, Vedders, Van 
Vrankens, Groots, Tymesons, Pearces, Jansens and Van Bock- 
hoovens. The canal crosses the Mohawk into this town on a 
magnificent stone aqueduct. By an act of 1805, Alexander was 
authorized to erect a dam at this place. 

The population of the town in 1865 was 845, and its area 
7,443 acres. 

There are four school districts, employing the same number 
of teachers. The number of children of school age is 345 ; the 
number attending school 226 ; the average attendance 117, and 
the amount expended for school purposes during the year end- 
ing September 30, 1869, was $1,525.66. 

FRINCBTOWN, named in honor of John Prince, a 
member of Assembly from Albany Co. when the town was 
formed, was formed from Schenectady, March 36, 1798. It lies 
a little west of the center of the County. The surface consists 
of a broken upland, gently descending towards the south-east. 
The streams are Norman's Kil, in the south, and Zantzee Kil in 
the north. A cascade sixty feet in hight is upon this stream, 
and from this point to the Mohawk are several rapids and small 
cascades. Tlie soil is a heavy clay loam, underlaid by hardpan, 
and is best adapted to grazing. 

Princetown (p. o.) is a hamlet in the southern part. 

This town was conveyed chiefly to George Ingoldsby and 
Aaron Bradt, in 1737. William Corry subsequently became the 
owner and formed a settlement which was long known as 
" Corry's Bush." The town was thinly settled at the time of 
the Eevolution. The Princetown Academy was opened on a 
large scale in 1853, and was discontinued in 1856. 

The population in 1865 was 931, and the area 14,421 acres. 

There are seven school districts, employing the same number 

of teachers. The number of children of school age is 345 ; the 

number attending school, 287 ; the average attendance, 137, and 

' the amount expended for school purposes for the year ending 

September 30, 1869, was $1,852.07. 

BOTTEBDAMvf&s formed from Schenectady, April 14, 
1820. A part of the City was annexed in 1853. It lies near 
the center of the County, upon the south bank of the Mohawk. 



166 OA.ZETTBEB OF TOWNS. 

The surface consists of a broken, hilly region in the north-west, 
a level interval extending from the center towards the south, 
and a high plain in the east. The soil upon the west hills is a 
tough clay, underlaid by shale, which frequently crops out. 
The central valley or plain, extending five miles, was called by 
the Dutch the "Bouwlandt." The soil is a deep alluvium. 
The east plateau is sandy and barren. 

Rotterdam, Mohawkville and Factoryville are hamlets. 

Settlements were commenced about 1661. Among the early 
settlers were Wilhelmus Van Otto, Van Curazoa, a native of the 
Island of Curazoa, Ryer Schermerhorn and Simon Veeder. The 
house of Van Otto stood on the site of the one formerly occu- 
pied by Simon Veeder. During the Revolution there were fami- 
lies living in town by the name of Delemont, Van Pelten and 
Brangham. 

The first church was organized August 29, 1800. Rev. 
Thomas Romeyn was the first pastor. 

The Methodist Episcopal Church of Rotterdam was organized 
in 1846, by the Presiding Elder Lindsey, and consisted of 60 
members. Revs. S. Covel and W. R. Brown were the first pas- 
tors. A house of worship was erected about the same time. 
The present house was erected in 1866 at a cost of about S4.000. 
Its seating capacity is about 400. The present membership is 
130 ; the present pastor is Rev. Demas Burroughs. James Fish- 
er, Sen., purchased the site for the church, of Daniel D. Camp- 
bell, in 1844, and presented it to the society. Mr. Fisher came 
from England in 1818, and is still living, in the 86th year of 
his age. 

The population in 1865 was 2,290, and the area 21,052 acres. 

There are twelve school districts, employing the same num- 
ber of teachers. The number of children of school age is 905 ; 
the number attending school 480 ; the average attendance 251, 
and the amount expended for school purposes for the year end- 
ing September 30, 1869, was $4,513.70. 

8CMENBCTADY CITY was patented with certain 
municipal rights, Nov. 4, 1684; it was chartered as a borough, 
October 23,1765; incorporated as a district, March 24, 1772; 
as a town, March 7, 1788 ; and as a city, March 26, 1798. Prince- 
town was taken off in 1798, Rotterdam and Glenville in 1820, 
and parts of Niskayuna and Rotterdam in 1853. The name io 
of Indian origin and signifies " beyond the plains." In old do- 
cuments we find it spelled Schenectada and Schenectedi. The City, 
under its first charter, contained an area of 128 square miles, 



GAZETTEER OF TOWNS. 167 



but has now an area of about 550 acres. It is situated on the 
Mohawk River, on the borders of one of the finest alluvial flats 
in the State.. Its situation affords excellent facilities for trade 
and commerce by the Erie Canal, which passes through it, and 
the railroads extending through and terminating here. The 
New York Central Rauroad, forming one of the great thorough- 
fares between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, with its branches 
to Troy and Athens on the Hudson ; the Saratoga and Schen- 
ectady Railroad, affording easy and rapid communication with 
the north and east, have all been in successful operation for many 
years. A short road from Schenectady to Dijanesburgh is about 
to be constructed, connecting with the Albany and Susquehan- 
na Railroad, giving a direct communication with Binghamton 
and the coal region of Pennsylvania. A survey has been made 
for a railroad from Schenectady to Ogdensburgh, on the St. 
Lawrence, which, when completed, will form a direct road to 
New York. 

The City contains 14 churches. Union College, two daily and 
three wee'kly newspapers, three banks, the Schenectady Loco- 
motive Works, agricultural works, several machine shops, found- 
ries, carriage factories, planing mills, manufactories of steam 
boilers, hollow ware and various other articles, and about 12,000 
inhabitants. 

Union College was incorporated by the Regents February 25, 
1795, and received its name from the co-operation and union of 
several religious denominations in its foundation. As early as 
1779 the inhabitants north of the Mohawk River petitioned for 
the incorporation of a college, but without success. In 1782, 
and again in 1791, the petition was renewed with no better suc- 
cess than before. In 1793 an academy was incorporated, and 
an effort made to raise funds to secure the endowment of a col- 
lege. The sum of $7,935 was subscribed by ninety-nine per- 
sons in Albany, and $3,425 by 231 persons in Schenectady. 
This amount was further increased, and through the influence 
of General Philip Schuyler, the College was located at Schenec- 
. tady. In 1805, 1814 and in 1822, lotteries were authorized by 
the Legislature, the net proceeds of which were to be appro- 
priated to the endowment of the College. The total amount 
for permanent investment in 1822 amounted to $331,612.13. 
The proceeds of tlxe last lottery were so involved with the pri- 
vate property of Dr. Nott, who managed the whole, that it re- 
quij:ed several months to ascertain the rights of the two parties. 
The question having been amicably adjusted. Dr. Nott, on the 
28th of December, 1858, made over to the Trustees several hun- 
dred thousand dollars, the proceeds of which are applied to the 



108 OAZSTTEES OF TOWNS. 



various purooses of the College. The first college building was 
erected on Union Street, and is now occupied by the public 
schools of the City. In 1814 the tract of land now occupied by 
the College was purchased, and the buildings subsequently 
erected. The site is upon an eminence that overlooks the City, 
sufficiently near the business portion for all practical purposes, 
and far enough away to avoid the noise, dust and confusion in- 
cident to a City. The first president was Eev. John Blair 
ymith, who was succeeded in 1799 by Rev. Jonathan Edwards, 
who held the ofiBce until his death in August 1801. Eev. 
Jonathan Maxcy was the next president, and was succeeded in 
1804 by Rev. Eliphalet Nott, who held the office until his death, 
January 39, 1866. During his presidency, over 4,000 young 
men graduated, a large number of whom have been conspicuous 
in political, commercial and ecclesiastical life. For many years 
the Junior and Senior classes were by far the largest in the Col- 
lege, a very unusual thing. Dr. Nott contributed largely of his 
private property, and several professorships bear his name. In 
1855 the College was partially reorganized, and departments of 
Civil Engineering and Analytical Chemistry were established. 
Besides the courses of special instruction in the departments 
just named, there are two courses ,of study in the institution, 
the Classical and the Scientific, each of which embraces a course 
of four years. The apparatus of the College is ample for illus- 
trating the principles of the various branches taught, including 
a full supply of field instruments for the Engineering depart- 
ment. A valuable collection of minerals and shells, known as 
the " Wheatly Collection," and purchased for $10,000, was pre- 
sented to the College by E. C. Delavan, Esq. About 4,000 
specimens of minerals have been systematically arranged and 
labeled for the purpose of instruction, and form a collection 
which stands among the first in the country in value and in- 
tere^. A large number of students have their bills for instruc- 
tion paid wholly or in part by scholarships which are accessi- 
ble, under certain restrictions, to all who present the requisite 
certificates of character, and sustain the examination required 
for admission to the regular classfes of the College. The last 
annual catalogue gives the names of 114 undergraduates in the 
various classes, 93 of whom were residents of this State. The 
Faculty consists of fourteen professors and teachers, at the head 
of whom is Rev. Charles Augustus Aiken, Ph. D., D. D., Pres- 
ident. 

The Public Schools of the iCity are under the control of ten 
Commissioners, two from each ward, who hold their office for 
two years ; one from each ward being chosen annually. The

schools are graded and aflfbrd instruction in all the branches 
usually taught in the best public schools of the State. Thirty- 
one teachers are employed. The number of children of school 
age is 3,654 ; the number who attended school some portion of 
the last year was 1,950 ; the average daily attendance was 1,176 ; 
the amount expended for teachers' wages was $11,744.20, and 
the whole amount expended for school purposes during the 
year was $17,755.24. The number of volumes in the library is 
3,000, valued at $4,600. The estimated value of school house 
sites is $15,000, and of school houses $28,000. 

The Schenectady Locomotive Works Co. was incorporated in 
1851, with a capital of $130,000. About 600 hands are em- 
ployed, turning out about 75 locomotives annually. The officers 
of the Company are John C. Ellis, President; Charles G. Ellis, 
Treasurer ; Walter McQueen, Superintendent. 

The New State Arsenal is a fine brick edifice, occupying a com- 
manding position near the Park. Its size is about 75 by 100 
feet, and two stories high, with a Mansard roof, and cost $40,000. 

Vale Cemetery occupies a beautiful site a short distance from 
the City. It is handsomly laid out and contains many fine 
monuments. When the present contemplated improvements 
are completed it will form one of the most beautiful rural cem- 
eteries of its size in this part of the State. Among the monu- 
ments of this Cemetery is one " Sacred to the memory of 57 
American soldiers who were buried at Schenectady during the 
Eevolution." The monument was erected by the citizens of 
Schenectady in 1859. 

The first settlement of Schenectady was made in 1661, as 
already noticed in tl^e sketch of the County. . As this was a 
frontier settlement, the compact part^was at an early day sur- 
rounded by palisades, as a protection against the incursions of 
the Indians. In 1690 the inclosure was in the form of an ob- 
long rectangle, with gates at the ends. The gates were fre- 
quently left open, and sometimes no guard was kept, the people 
feeling so secure. This was the situation on the memorable 
night of February 9th, 1690, when the French and Indians 
made the attack, killing sixty-three persons and carrying 
twenty-seven into captivity. The lives of sixty old persons and 
children were spared in this massacre. The settlement re- 
covered slowly from the disaster, and but few accessions were 
made previous to the close of King William's War. A new 
fort was built in May 1690, which was garrisoned for many 
years. Another fort was built in 1735|»and still another in 
1780. By an act of itSO, all the people living within a half

mile of the Dutcli church were assessed in labor and materials 
for the erection of defensive works, the work to be done under 
the direction of the field oflacers and magistrates. The old 
Port stood at the intersection of Ferry and Front Streets. The 
following description of Scheneetady in llbl, is from " Docu- 
mentary History of New York." 

" Ohenectedi or Corlear, situated on the bank of the Mohawk 
River, is a village of about 300 houses. It is surrounded by up- 
right pickets, flanked from distance to distance. Entering this 
village by the gates on the Fort Hunter side, there is a fort to 
the right which forms a species of citadel in the interior of the 
village itself. It is a square flanked with four bastions or demi- 
bastions and is constructed half of masonry and half of timbers 
piled one over the other above the masonry. It is capable of 
holding two or three hundred men. There are some pieces of 
cannon as a battery on the rampart. It is not encircled by a 
ditch. The entrance is through a large swing gate raised like 
a drawbridge. By penetrating the village in attacking it at an- 
other point, the fire from the fort can be avoided. The greatest 
portion of the inhabitants of Ohenectedi are Dutch." 

" From Ohenectedi to Albany or Orange is estimated to be 
six or seven leagues. The road is excellent for all sorts of car- 
riages ; the soil is sandy and the country covered with open 
timber. There are only a few hills. A league and a half from 
Ohenectedi, there is a house on the road which is a tavern. A 
league and a half further on, that is to say half way, another 
house is met which is also a tavern." * * * « fi^g j£q. 
hawk River can be forded during the summer a league and a 
quarter west of Ohenectedi. Opposite Ohenectedi the traverse 
is usually in a ferry boat and bateaux. The inhabitants of this 
country are Dutchmen. They form a company of about one 
hundred men with those on the opposite side of the river below 
Fort Hunter." 

In 1802 Rev. John Taylor, a missionary sent out from Massa- 
chusetts, made a tour through the region of the Mohawk and 
Black Rivers. He says : " Schenectady makes a singular ap- 
pearance, being built in the old Dutch form — the houses gen- 
erally one story or a story and a half and standing endwise to 
the street. Its local situation is excellent, standing upon the 
south bank of the Mohawk, and there appears in everything a 
simplicity and neatness that is very pleasing." 

The first mail was brought to this town April 3, 1763. The 
first English school was opened under the supervision of Rev. 
Henry Barclay, in IflO. In 1771 Rev. Wm. Andrews opened 
a grammar school, and in a letter to Sir W. Johnson,' dated 
Nov. 5, lllX, he says, " I have determined on forming it into 



OAZETTESn OF TOWNS. 171 

an Academy and propose giving instructions in reading, writ- 
ing, arithmetic, geography and history, to those who may be de- 
signed to fill the stations of actual life, exclusive of those who 
may be taught the learned languages, book-keeping and mer- 
chants accounts, to fit them for business or the mechanic arts. 
At present I have thirteen scholars, and as the prices are mod- 
erate for teaching and receiving boarders, I have a good prospect 
of getting more daily." In the same letter he says : " What I 
only wish for is, that the venerable Society would please to add 
something to my income, either on account of the school, or 
because of the poverty of the mission. For I believe I may safe- 
ly pronounce it to be one of the poorest missions on the Conti- 
nent. Still I would not wish to appear discontented, for I am 
far from being so, I only wish to have my income so settled in a 
moderate way that I can make it barely satisfy my few wants." 
In 1785 the ConsistoVy of the Dutch Church erected a small acad- 
emy on the corner of Ferry and Union Streets, and in 1793 the 
Schenectady Academy was incorporated, and was merged in the 
College in 1795. In 1816 a Lancasterian school was incorporat- 
ed and was continued in operation until the present school sys- 
tem was adopted. 

The first church organization in the town was the Eeformed 
Dutch. The oldest preserved record of the Church is dated 
1681. This record is an account of bonds belonging to the 
Church, and shows that it had been in existence for some time 
previous. The first church edifice was erected in 1684 at what 
is now the junction of State and Church Streets. The first 
pastor was Rev. Petrus Thesschawniascher, who continued in 
charge of the Church until February 9th, 1690, when he fell a 
victim to the French and Indians during that memorable mas- 
sacre. Previous to his appointment in 1684, this Church was 
occasionally supplied by the ministers from Albany. Rev. Barn- 
hardus Freeman was the second pastor, and came here in 1700. 
About this time a second church edifice was erected, the Gover- 
nor granting a special license for the inhabitants or their agents, 
" to gather, collect and receive the free and voluntary offerings 
and contributions of all and singular his liege subjects, inhabit- 
ants of his province, at any time from the day of the date there- 
of for and during the term of six months then ensuing." The 
funds raised were restricted to the rebuilding of the church, and 
all justices of the peace, high sheriffs, and all others, His Majes- 
ty's friends, with all Protestant ministers, were exhorted to use 
each their utmost diligence to excite and stir up the charities of 
the inhabitants. This church was converted into a fort in 1734. 
After a pastorate of five years, Mr. F. was transferred to Kings 
County, and the Church in Schenectady was supplied by the 



173 OAZETTSEB OF TOWNS. 

Albany ministers for ten years, when Rev. Thomas Browers be- 
came the pastor. In 1715 the society purchased the lot now 
occupied by the church, together with a dwelling house, which 
was occupied as a parsonage for nearly one hundred years. In 
1734 a massive stone church was erected at the corner of Church 
and Union Streets. Another one of brick was erected near the 
same site in 1814, and continued to be occupied by the society 
until August 6, 1861. The present church edifice was dedicated 
August 6, 1863. It is one of the finest structures in the State, 
and cannot fail to attract the attention of all by its beautiful 
and unique appearance. It is situated at the corner of Union 
and Church Streets, upon a lot about 141 by 189 feet. The 
main building fronts Union Street, and the consistory room 
Church Street. In the angle between them stands the tower. 
The buildings are so placed as to leave a large open space in 
front. The whole building, including buttresses, measures out- 
side 113 feet from north to south, and 116 from east to west; 
and it is 170 feet from the ground to the top of the spire. The 
building is of stone, covered with slate, the walls of which are 
constructed of Graywacke, while a variety of other stones is in- 
troduced to adorn the structure. Edward Tuckerman Potter 
was the architect of the church. On the occasion of the dedi- 
cation, a sermon was delivered by Rev. Edward Seelye, the pas- 
tor of the Church. The original cost of the church was about 
150,000, but its present value is nearly double that sum. It will 
seat about 1,000. The present membership is 450, and the 
present pastor is Rev. D. Wortman, D. D. 

St. George's Church (Episcopal) was organized in 1750 by Rev. 
Henry Barclay. It was incorporated in 1766, and an edifice 
erected in 1768. From a letter written by John W. Brown of 
Schenectady, to Sir WilHam Johnson, Oct. 19th, 1768, we learn 
that the church was not completed. After expressing grateful 
sentiments to him, he says : " We shall instantly set about 
finishing the church, though I fear it will be too late in the 
season to plaster the walls. According to order I have sent a 
barrel of Rusk, branded on the head E. B., which I hope has 
come safe to hand." The present house of worship will seat 
about 1,000 and is valued at $18,000. The number of commu- 
nicants is 340. The present rector is Rev. Wm. Payne, D. D. 

The following inscription is on a slab in St. George's Church : 

" In memory of John W. Brown who departed this life June 30th, 1814, 
aged 87 years. A native of Great Britain, came to Schenectady in 1748, 
where he remained until his death. The founder and steady friend of this 
Church." 



OAZETTBSS OF TOWNS. 173 

The First M. E. Church of Schenectady was organized in Feb- 
ruary 1807 by Rev. Alexander McKean. The first pastor was 
Eev. Samuel Howe. The first house of worship was erected in 
1809, and the present house in 1834, In 1816 the membership 
was fifty; it now numbers 350. Rev. J. W. Eaton is the present 
pastor. The present value of the church edifice is estimated at 
$12,000 ; it will seat 1200. The society are about to erect a new 
church at a cost of about $60,000. 

The German M. E. Church was organized in 1848 with seven 
members. The first pastor was Rev. John G. Grace, and the 
first house of worship was erected in 1850. The present mem- 
bership is 310. The church will seat 250 and its value is- 
$3,000. The society have purchased a building lot and are 
about to erect a new church tjiat will accommodate about 700. 

St. John's Roman Catholic Church was organized by Rev. 
Charles Smith, with twenty members. The first house of wor- 
ship was erected in 1830; the present house in 1839. The 
original church cost $2,000 ; the present one is valued at $25,- 
000. It will seat 2,000 persons. Eev. M. E. Clark is the present 
pastor. 

The First Presbyterian Church was organized previous to 1769, 
though the precise time cannot now be determined. A new 
church edifice was commenced this year, and was not com- 
pleted in 1771, though it had a tower and bell. Rev. Alexander 
Miller was one of the early pastors, serving the Church at va- 
rious times from 1771 to 1787, though how long he continued 
each time is not known. A new church edifice was commenced 
in 1809. December 6, 1832, Rev. J. Trumbull Backus was or- 
dained and installed pastor, and has continued in that capacity 
to the present time. The church edifice was enlarged in 1834, 
and again in 1859, giving it a seating capacity of about 1500. 
The present membership is about 400. 

East Avenue Presbyterian Church, an offshoot of this, was or- 
ganized with seventeen members, and a house of worship erected 
in 1867. It will seat 400 and cost $4,000. The firstpastor was
