Xbe Mlddlebareli Crazette, pub- 
lished by O. B. Ireland, Is a new applicant 
for public favor. It occupies a field where 
no other paper is pablisned, and judging 
from the papers we nave, we can commend 
it to the patronage of all. It is an Inde- 
pendentj^ paper, bound by no party or sect, 
and devoted to Literature, Agriculture, 
General Intelligence and Local interests. 
Success to this new .enterprise. See card 
on page 164. 

mrs. Emma Bnrlelgli, m. D., 

No. 68 Howard Street, Albany, N. T., ad- 
vertises on page 242. It seems eminently 
proper that ladles suffering from diseases 
peculiar to their own sex, should receive 
medical treatment from their own sex, and 
we are glad to learn that ladies of the best 
minds m our land, are giving attention to 
the study and practice ormedicinB. There 
is a wide field open before them and the 
pioneers are deserving of special credit for 
their perseverance against obstacles which 
few men would overcome, we commend 
all our readers who are afflicted with any of 
the diseases peculiar to females, to consult 
Mrs. B. either by letter or In person. 

Scbobarle Oonnty Asrlcnltaral 
irorks, located at Central Bridge, N. 
T., are largely engaged in the manufacture 
of Thresfilng Machines, Eailway Horse 
Powers, Wood Saws, Clover Hullers and a 

feat variety of other implements. Mr. S. 
, Campbell, the proprietor, gives Ms per- 
sonal attention to the worES, empfoys 
good workmen, uses good materials and 
turns out first-class work. See advertise- 
ment on page 148. 

Treat Darandjmannfoctorerof Hubs 
and Spokes, Schoharie, K. T., advertises 
on page 847. He Is the successor of the 

American Hub and Spoke Company, which 
was organized in 1859 and commenced ope- 
rations In 1860. The Company had a capi- 
tal of $100,000, and the cost of buildings 
and machinery was $22,000. The works 
were burned on 1865 and rebuilt the next 
year. In 1870 the Company was dissolved 
and Mr. Durand became the purchaser of 
property and has since carried on the bttsl- 
ness. It is run by steam and has a capacity 
for turning out about $30,000 worth of 
Hubs and Spokes annnaUy. Mr. Durand is 
a man worthy of public confidence and Is 
EucessfiiUy prosecuting the business. 

JTobn Feeck, mann&cturer of Car- 
riages of all kinds, Gobleskill, N. T.. ad- 
vertises on page 246. Mr. P. is the oldest 
Carriage manufacturer in this County. He 
is a native of Scholiarie, served an appren- 
ticeship with Austin £[nowles, a,nS for 
nearly forty years has been engaged In the 
business. It is hardly necessary to say 
that he thoroughly understands his busi- 
ness in all its branches and lias no superior 
in the County. He keeps a large stock on 
hand at his maimfactory, and has a Reposi- 
tory at Gallupvllle, where those in want of 
a good Carriage can hardly fail to find some- 
thuig to suit their taste and their purse. 
Let those Interested call and examine for

In presenting to the public the "Gazetteer and Business 
Directory of Schoharie County," the publisher desires to return 
his sincere thanks to all who have so kindly aided in obtaining 
the information it contains, and without whose aid it would 
have been impossible to cpUect it in the brief space of time in 
which it is e'ssential that all such works should be completed. 
Especially are our thanks due to the several Editors of the 
Schoharie Union and. Schoharie Bepublican, Soh.6h.axie; CohlesJeill 
Index, Cobleskill ; Schoharie County Democrat, Richmondville ; 
and the Middleburgh Gazette, Middleburgh; for the uniform 
kindness which has been evinced in calling attention to the 
author's efforts ; and to the following persons, viz., Wm. T. 
Broughton, Town Clerk, Summit ; Dr. Peter S. Swart, Almerin 
Gallup, John Morrison, County Clerk, Ghas. Holmes, County 
Judge, Rev. J. H. Heck, Schoharie ; John Van Voris, School 
Commissioner, Cobleskill ; Ambrose E. Hunting, School Com- 
missioner, Gallnpville ; and John F. Hazelton, Aest. Assessor 
Internal Revenue, Esperance, for essential aid in furnishing 
material for the work. Many others have kindly volunteered 
their assistance, to all of whom we return our sincere thanks. 

The following works have been consulted in its preparation : 
French's, Gordon's and Spafford's Gazetteers of the State of 
New York; "Documentary History of New York;" Lossing's 
" Pictorial Field Book of the Revolution ;" Simms' « History 
of Schoharie ;" Campbell's " Annals of Tryon County ;" Census 
Reports; Proceedings of Board of Supervisors; and many 


That errors have occurred in 8o great a number of names and 
dates as are here given is probable ; and that names hare been 
omitted which should have been inserted is quite certain. We 
can only say that we have exercised more than ordinary dili- 
gence and care in this difficult and complicated feature of book- 
making. Of such as feel aggrieved in consequence of errors or 
omission we beg pardon, and ask the indulgence of the reader 
in marking such as have been observed in the subsequent read- 
ing of the proofs, and which are found in the JErrata, following 
the Introduction. 

It was designed to give a brief history of all the church or- 
ganizations in the County, but owing, in some cases, to the neg- 
ligence of those who alone were able to give the necessary in- 
formation, and in others, to the inability of any o»e to do so, 
we have been obliged to omit many or indefinitely delay the 
completion of the work. 

We would suggest that our patrons observe and become 
familiar with the explanations at the commencement of the 

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

The Advertisers represent some of the leading business men 
and firms of »this and other counties ; and we most cheerfully 
commend them all to the patronage of those under whose 
observation these pages may come. 

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





Tbe Territories.— The 41st Congress erected tbe District of Colombia into a 
Territory, nnder the name of "Territory of Columbia." 

Stamp Dntles.— The last (Congress passed an act, " That on and after the first day 
of October, 1870, the stamp tax imposed in Schedule B, on promissory notes for a less 
snm than one hundred dollars, and on receipts for any sum of money, or for the pay- 
ment of any debt, and the stamp tax imposed in Schedule C, on canned and preserved 
fish, be, and the same are hereby repealed. And no stamp shall be regnirea upon the 
transferor assignmentof a mortgage, where it or the instrument it secures has been 
once duly stamped." 

Postal Bates and Regnlatlons. — The postal arrangements with foreign 
countries are subject to such freanent changes, that, as given is this work, they should 
not be relied upon for any great length of time. The rates and reguUtlons for Domestic 
mail matter, however, can be relied upon at all times. 

nilddlebnrsb.— 3^ Toung Peopl»'$ Moral Aaioeiation, of Euntereland, was or- 
ganized in the summer of 1871, and now numbers 70 members. The Association publish- 
es a literary journal, called the Leiture Bour, which is edited by Alice Sweet. This 
society, we are informed, is in a very prosperous condition. 

Scbobarle.— The following was fhrnished to us by Almerin GaMhp, Esq., of 

"Old Stonb Fobt Csmbtebt, Sohohakib, N. Y.— The old stone Fort,Btand!ng on the 

f rounds of the Cemetery, and situate one mile north-east of the Schoharie County Court 
[ouse, on the hill near Fox's Creek, (of which yon have a splendid view f^om the rail 
road as you approach the village of Schoharie) was formerly the German High Dutch Be- 
formed church, and used for more than 70 years for Divine worship by that congregation. 
It was built in 1772, (one hundred years ago,) and during the Bevolution was used as a 
fort, and often times as a place of safety for the entire families of the early settlers for < 
miles around, of whom we may safely say there is none now living, *no not one,' bat the 
remains of many are now restmg in their graves in the adjoining Cemetery surrounding 
the old Fort, among which is that of Col. Peter Yroman, who commanded the Fort, and 
many of his brave companions in arms. In 1780 it was attacked by the Indians and 
Tories, under the command of Johnson and Brant, and the holes made by cannon ball 
are BtiU plainly to be seen. The old Fort is a substantial, well built building, and is still 
in a good state of preservation ; it is now owned and used by the State as an Arsenal, 
and la to be preserved as a relic of the Bevolution and in memory of the brave men who 
displayed their courage and patriotism in defending their country in the fearfhl 
Btrug^e for American Independence. It has lone been in contemplation to have the re- 
mains of David Williams, (one of the captors of Major Andre,)who died in this County, 
removed to the Old Stone Fort Cemetery, and a suitable monument erected to ms 
memory ; also that of Col. Yroman and others. The Old Stone Fort Cemetery was dnly 
incorporated as a Bnral Cemetery under the laws of the State in 1859, but the grounds 
were sadly neglected nntil 1868, when the inhabitants were aroused to a sense of their 
duty to the departed, a new board of trustees were elected, consisting of Doctor Feter 


S, Swart, Almerin Gallup, George Laeher, Daniel Larldn, Paul Deitz, James S. Water- 
bary. Napoleon Clark ana others, under wnose direction it was snrreyed and laid out 
into lots of 20 feet square, witb suitable carriage ways and walks, addittonsl lands pur- 
chased, and a large number of balsam, fir and other evergreen trees, set ont,wblch are now 
in a flourishing condition and will soon make it one of the most beantiihl Cemetery 
Bites in the country. A very large number of lots have been sold within the last four 
years, and many people, for seTcral miles round, are removing the remains from their 
private burial groonds to this Cemetery, which now contains a Vault, and soma of the 
finest and most costly monuments in the County."

was .declared by the Governor, June 34, to be 104,913 for, and 47,338 
.against. This movement not being |pceptable to the people of East Ten- 
nessee, which had declared against separation by a vote of 33,933 to 14,780, 
they, in a Convention held at Greenvrlle, June 18-31, repudiated it. An- 
drew Johnson, Provisional Governor of the State, called a State Conven- 
tion to be held in Nashville the second Monday in ; January. Delegates 
were elected, the Convention met, declared slavery forever abolished, pro- 
hibited compensation to owners, of slaves, and abrogate^' the secession or- 
dinances. ■ These amendments of the Constitution were submitted to the 
people 33d of February, 1865, -yvith the following result: For ratification, 
33,197 ; rejection, 63. The United States Constitutional Amendment was 
ratified April 5, 1865. 

T£!X:ii.S was first settled at Bexar, in 1694, by Spaniards; formed a 
part of Mexico until 1886, when she revolted from that Republic and in- 
stituted a separate Government, under which she existed until admitted 
into the Union by a joint resolution approved March Ist, 1845, imposing 
certain conditions, which were accei)ted, and a Constitution formed July 
4 of the same year, and another joint resolution adopted by Congress, 
consummating the annexation, was approved December 29, 1845. Area 
287,504 square mUes, or 152,003,500 acres. Population in 1860, 604,215, of 
whom 182,566 were slaves. It is an agricultural region, principally devo- 
ted to grain, cotton and tropical fruits. Free white ms^e citizens of 31 
years of age, who have resided in the State one, year. and district six

vote of 166 to 7, to be submitted to the people February 23, and on March 
4 they declared the State out of the Union, and Gov. Houston issued a 
Proclamation to that effect^ 

T^SHMOJVT was settled in 1724, by Englishmen from Connecticut, 
chiefly under grants from New Hampshire ; was formed from a part of 
the territory of New York, by act of its Legislature March 6, 1769 ; framed 
a Constitution December 25, 1777, and was admitted into the Union 
March 4, 1791, by virtue of an act of Congress passed February 18 of the 
same-year. Area 10,212 square miles, or 6,585,680 acres. Population in 
1860, 315,098. It is a grazing region, producing more wool, live stock, 
maple sugar, butter, cheese and hay, in proportion to its population, than 
any other State. Any citizen of the United States who has resided in the 
State one year, and will take the oath of allegiance, is entitled to vote. 

YIHGIJVIji. was settled at Jamestown, in 1607, by the English, and 
was chartered April 10, 1606, May 23, 1609, and March 12, 1618. It was 
one of the original thirteen States, ratifying the United States Constitution 
June 35, 1788 ; it framed a State Constitution July 5, 1776, which was 


• 1 — — .^ 

amended January i5, 1830. The State was divided in 1863. Present 
area 37,353 square miles. Population in 1860, 1,314,532, of whom 481,-

secession, by a vote of 88 to 55, which was submitted to the people at an 
election held May 33, the result of which was announced June 35 to be 
138,834 for, and 32^134 against. The State Government was re^organized 
by a Convention which met at Wheeling, May 11, 1861. Upon the divi- 
sion of the State in 1863, the seat of Government was removed to Alexao- 
dria. A State Qonstitutional Convention, March 10, 1864, adopted a sec- 
tion abolishing slavery. 

yVJSST TI^GIJVIA.—On the passage of the ordinance of se- 
cession by the Virginia Convention, a Convention of the western and. other 
loyal coimties of the State was held at Wheeling, which assembled May 
11, 1861, and on the 17th unanimously deposed the then State ofllcers and 
organized a Provisional Government. On the 36th of November, 1861, a 

, Convention representing the western counties assembled in Wheeling and 
framed a Constitutioh for West Virginia, which was suhmitted to the 
people on the 3d of May, 1862, and adopted by them by a nearly unani- 
mous vote. The division of the State' vsras sanctioned by the Legislature 
May 18, 1863, and ratified by Congress by an act approved December 31, 
1863, conditioned on the adoption of an amendment to the Constitution 
providing for the gradual abolition of slavery, which was done on the 34th 
of March, 1863, by a vote of the qualified electors of the proposed State, 
28,318 voting in favor of the amendment, and 573 against It.. In pursu- 
ance of the act of Congress, the President issued a Proclamation, April 
20, 1863, admitting the State sixty days from the date thereof, and on the 
20th of June the new State Government was formally inaugurated. Area 
24,000 square miles. Population in 1860, 350,599, of whom 12,754 were 

, slaves. It is a large com producing State, and abounds in coal and other 
minerals. The Alexandria Legislature adopted the United States Consti- 
tutional Amendment February 9, 1865. White male citizens, residents of 
the State one year and county thirty days, unless disqualified by rebellion, 
are entitled to vote. 

iriSCOJVSJJV -vrsA settled at Green Bay, in 1669, by the French ; 
was a part of the territory ceded by Virginia, and was set off from Mich- 
igan December 24, 1834, and was organized into a Territory April 30, 
1836. Iowa (Was set off from it June 12, 1838, and acts were passed at 
various times setting its boundaries. March 3, 1847, an act for its admis- 
sion into the Union was passed, to take effect oi the issuing of a Procla- 
mation by the President, and by act of May 29, 1848, it was admitted into 
the Union. Area 53,924 square miles, or. 34,511,360 acres. Population in 
1860, 775,881. It is an agricultural State, chiefly engaged ingrain raising 
and wool growing. Boli white and colored citizens of the United States, 
or white foreigners who have declared their intention to become citizens, 
are entitled to vote. Cblored citizens were admitted to the fraanchise, by a 
decision of the Supreme Court, rendered the 27th day of March, 1866, 
holding that, whereas an election was held in 1849, under the provisions 
of chapter 137, of that year, at which election 6,365 votes were cast in 


favor of the extension of the right of suffrage to colored men, and 4,075 
against such extension, therefore, the section of said law conferring such 
right had been constitutionally adopted and is the law of the land. 



jil^ciSJS'ji., our new territory, recently piurchased of Russia, compre- 
hends all the north-west coast on the Pacific, and the adjacent islands north 
of the parallel of 50 degrees 40 minutes north, and the portion -of the main- 
land west of the meridian (about 140° west) of Mount St. Elias. The area 
is computed at 481,276 square miles. The climate, although warmer than 
in the same latitude on the eastern coast, is too rigorous to admit of suc- 
cessflil 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 mountainous; the northern portion along the 
Arctic ocean is quite flat, nowhere rising more than fifteen or twenty feet 
above the sea. The population is estimated at about 80,000, mosfly Esqui- 
meaux. • 

A^IZOJVA. was organized by the Thirty-Seventh Congress, in the win- 
ter of 1863, out of the western half of New Mexico, the boundary between 
the two Territories being the 109th meridian (32dwest from Washington,) 
and includes the greater portions of the valleys of Colorado and Gila, 
which two rivers drain its entire surface, ^tith parts of Utah, New Mexico 
and Nevada, and yet convey, it is reported, a less volume of water to the 
sea than the Hudson at Albany. The fertile Messilla Valley was left with 
New Mexico. The Territory forms a block nearly square, and contains 
126,141 square miles, or 80,730,240 acres. Its white populationSs 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. 

COZO^jIDO was organized March 2, 1861, from parts of Kansas, 
Nebraska and Utah, and is situated on each side of the Rocky Mountains, 
between latitude 37° and 41°, and longitude 25° and 32° west from Wash- 
ington. Area 104,500 square miles, or 66,880,000 acres. Population 50,- 
000, besides numerous tribes of Indians. By an enabling act passed March 
21, 1864, the people of the Territory were authorized to frame a State Con- 
stitution and organize a State Government, and a Convention accordingly 
met in 1885, and on the 12th of August adopted a Constitution, which was 
submitted to and the people September 5, and State officers 
elected November 14. A bill to admit the Territory as a State passed 
Congress, but was vetoed May 25, 1866. It is said to be a superior graz- 
ing and cattle producing region, with a healthy climate and rich soil. 
An extensive coal bed, and also gold, iron and other minerals abound. 


S>jiJP02'ji. was first settled by emyloyees of the Hudson Bay Com- 
pany, but is now being peopled by emigrants from theKorthern and Wes- 
tern states. It was set off from the western portion of Minnesota when 
that Territory became a State in 1857, and was organized March 2, 1861. 
Area 148,932 square miles, or 95,316,480 acres. Population SiSTG whites, 
and 3,361 Indians, besides the roving tribes. 

ISiAMO was organized by the Thirty-Seventh Congress, at its second 
session, in the winter of 1863. Its name means. 'Bead of the Mountains,' 
and it embraces the whole breadth of the Rocky Mountain region, and has 
within its bounds the head waters of nearly all the great rivers that flow 
down its either slope, but the greater portion lies east of the mountains. 
Its southern boundary is the 4ist, its northern the 46th parallel of latitude. 
It extends from the 104th meridian on the east to the 110th on the west 
Area 336,873 square miles, or 308,870,720 acres. For agricultural purposes 
it is comparatively worthless, but abounds in gold and other valuable 

M'OJVTAJVA. was settled by emigrants from the Northern and "West- 
em States. Organized in 18p4, with the following boundaries: Com- 
mencing at a point formed by the intersection of the 37° L. W. from Wash- 
ington with the 45" N. L. ; thence due west on said 45th degree to a point 
formed by its intersection with the 34th degree W. from Washington ; 
thence due south along said 34th degree of longitude to its intersection 
with the 44th degree and 30 minutes of N. L. ; thence due west along said 
44th degree and 30 minutes of N. L. to a point formed by its intersection 
with the crest of the Rocky MoimtMns ; th6nce following the crest of the 
Bocky 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 loYigitude 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 Washington; thence 
southward along said 37th degree to the place of beginning. This makes 
it the northermost Territory next the States east of the Missouri Valley. It 
is a good mining and agricultural region. The total population is put 
down at 15,823. Large accessions have been made since the census wag 
taken. , 

J^£!W MJEXICO was formed from a part of the territory ceded to 
the United States by Mexico, by the treaty of Guadaloupe Hidalgo, Feb- 
ruary 2, 184S, and was oi'ganized into a Territory September 9, 1850. — 
Area 121,301 square miles, or 77,568,640 acres. Population 83,000, besides 
large tribes of warlike Indians. . The principal resource of the country is 
its minerals. 

U'TAJET-^SA settled by the Mormons, and was formed from a part of 
the territory ceded to the United States by Mexico, by the treaty of Guada- 
loupe Hidalgo, February 2, 1848, and was organized into a Territory, Sep- 
tember 9, 1850. Area, 106,382 square miles, or 68,084,480 acres. Popula- 
ton, 40,273, of whom 29 were slaves. Brine, sulphureous and chalybeate 
springs abound ; limestone, granite, sandstone and marble are found in 
large quantities; iron is abundant, and gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc 
have been found. Not one-fiftieth part of the soil is fit for tillage, but- on 
that which is, abundant crops of grain and considerable cotton are raised. 
A Convention was held at Great Salt Lake City, January 33, 1863, and a 
State Constitution formed, but it has not been acted on by Congress. 

yhAS^TJVGTO^yfss settled by emigrants from the Northern and 
Western States, and was organized into a Territory, March -3, 1853, from the 
horthern portion of Oregon, to which was added another portion from the 



eastern part when tlie latter Territory was admitted as a State, February 
14, 1859. Area 69,994 square miles, or 48,636,800 acres. Popujation 
11,168, besides numerous tribes of Indians. 

WTOMIJVG was organized in July 1868. It lies between th627tli and 
34th meridians of longitude west from Washington, and between the 
41st and 45th parallels of latitude. The Territory is rich in mineral wealth, 
having large quantities of iron, coal, gypsum and building stone, besides 
vast quantities of ^old, 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 organizing the Territory, provides 
that " There shall t)e 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."

In all cases where an adhesive stamp is 
used for denoting the stamp duty upon an 
instrument, the person using or affixing the 
same must write or imprint thereupon in 
ink the initials of bis name, and the date 
(the year, month, and day) on which the 
same Is attached or used. * Each stomp 
should be separately cancelled. Wheh 
stamps are printed upon checks. Sua., so 
that m fflling up the instrument, the fiice of 
the stamp is and must necessarily be writ- 
ten across, no other cancellation will be re- 

: All cancellation must be distinct and legi- 
ble, and except in the case of proprietary 
stamps from pnvate dies, no method of 
cancellation which differs from thi^t above 
described can be recognized as legal and 


A penalty of fifty (lollars is imposed upon 
every person who makes, signs, or issues, 
or who causes to be madq, signed, or issu- 
ed, any paper of any kind or description 
whatever, or who accepts, negotiates, or 
pays, or causes to be accepted, negotiated, 
or paid, any bill of exchange, draft, or or- 
der, or promissory note, for the payment of 
money, without the same being duly stamp- 
ed, or having thereupon an adhesive stamp 
for denoting the tax chargeable thereon, 
cancelled in the manner required by law, 
with intent to evade the provisions of the 
revenue act. 

A penalty of two hundred dollars is im- 
posed upon every person who pays, negJ^ 
tiates, or offers in payment, or receives or 
takes inpayment, any bill of exchange or 
order for the payment ofany sum of money 
drawn or purporting to be drawn in a for- 
eign country, but payable in the Unitei 
States, until the proper stomp has been af- 
fixed thereto. 

A penalty of fifty dollars is Imposed upon. 
every person who fraudulently makes use 
of an adhesive stamp to denote the dnt^ re- 
quired by the revenue act, vrithont efi'ectu- 
ally cancelling and obliterating the same in 
the manner required bylaw. 

Attention is particularly called to the fol- 
lowing extract from section 156, of the act 
of June 30, 1864, as amended by the act of 
July 13, 1866 : 

"If any person shall wilfhlly remove or 
cause to be removed, alter or cause to be al- 
tered, the cancelling or defacing marks on 
any adhesive stamp, with intent to use the 
same, or to cause tne use of the same, after 
it shall have been used once, or shall know- 
ingly or wilfoUy sell or buy such washed 
or restored stamps, or offer the same for 
sale, or give or expose the same to any per- 



son for nse, or knowingly use the same or 
prepare the same with intent for the far- 
ther nse thereof, or if any person shall 
knowingly and without lawful excuse (the 
proof whereof shall lie on the person accus- 
ed) have in his possession any washed," re- 
stored, or altered stamps, which have heen 
removed from any vellum, parchment, pa- 
per, instrument or writing ; then, and in 
every such case, every person so offending, 
and every person knowingly and wilfully 
•aiding, abetting, or assisting in committing 
any such offence as aforesaid, shall, on 'con- 
viction thereof, * * • be punished by 
a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars, 
or by imprisonment and confinement to 
hard labor not exceeding five years, or both, 
at the. discretion of the court." 

■ 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 amonnt have 
been affixed and cancelled in the manner 
required by law ; and such instrument or 
copy and the record thereof are utterly null 
and void, and cannot be used or admitted as 
evidence in any court until the defect has 
been cured as provided in section 158. 

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


Bevenne 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 instm- 

The law does not designate which of the 
parties to an instrument shall furnish the 
necessary stamp, nor does the Commission- 
er of Internal Bevenue assume to determine 
that it shall be supplied by one party rather 
tffianby another : but If an instrument sub- 
ject to stamp duty is issued without having 
the necessary stamps affixed thereto, it can- 
not be recorded, or admitted, pr used in ev- 
idence, in any court, until a legal stamp or 
stamps, denoting the amonnt of tax, shall 
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 upon 
certain specified instruments took effect, so 
far as said tax is concerned, October 1, 1862. 
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 snrren- 
• der, or prior to the establishment of collec- 
tion districts there, is erroneous. 

Instruments 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 pnor to October 1, 1862, to make 

it admissible in evidence, or to entitle it to 

Certificate! iif 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 ; 
*id "when more than one signatnreis affix- 
ed to the same paper, one or more stamps 
may be afiixed 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— siich stamp 4uty 
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 

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, &c. 
itsued by the officers therein named Also 
to the changes in sectiops 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 
sum of money, drawn or purporting to be 
drawn in any foreign country, bnt payable 
in the United States, most, before paying or 
accepting the same, place thereupon a 
stamp indicating the duty. 

It is only upon conveyances of realty joW 
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 warrant 
and defend the title, it should be stamned 
as an agreement or contract. 

Whrai a deed purporting to be a convey 
anoe of realty sold, and stamned according- 
ly, IS inoperative, a deed of^confirmation, 
made simply to cure the defect, requires no 
stam^ In such case, the second deed 
should contain a recital of the facts, and 
^''■2"lS5'""' **'§ 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 1o each: 
but where money or other valuaKe consii 
eratlon is paid by one co-tenant to another 
for equality of partition, there is a sale to 
the extent ofsnch consideration, and the 
conveyance: by the party receiving it. 
should be stamped accordingly. 

A conveyance ol lands sold for nnnaid 
t^es, issued since August 1, 1866, by the 
officers of any county, (own, or other mu- 



nicipal corooraUon in the discharge of their 
strictly official daties, Is exempt from 
stamp tax, 

A conveyance of realty sold, snbject to a 
mortgage, should he stamped according to 
the consideration, or the value gf the prop- 
erty ttnencmnierea. The consideration m 
such case Is to he found by adding the 
amount paid for the equity of redemption 
to the mortgage debt. The fact that one 
part of the consideration Is paid to tbe 
mortgagor and the other part to the mort- 
gagee does not change the liability ot the 

The stamp tas upon a mortgage is based 
upon the amonnt itls given to secure. The 
fact that the value of the property mortgag- 
ed is less than that amount, and that conse- 
quently the security is- only partial, does 
not change theliability of the instrument. 
When, therefore, a second mortgage is giv- 
en to secure the payment of a sum of mon- 
ey partially secured by a prior mortgage up-, 
on other property, or when two mortgages 
upon separate property are given at the 
same time to secure the payment of the 
same sum, each should be stamped as 
though it were the only one. 

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

The stamp duty upon a lease, agreement, 
memorandum, or contract for the nire, use, 
or rent of any land, tenement, or portion 
thereof, is based upon the annual rent or 
rental value of the property leased, and the 
duty is the same whether the lease be for 
one y6ar, 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 upon a mortgage for the 
amonnt remaining unpaid ; this tax Js re- 
quired upon every such transfer in writing, 
whether there is a sa/e of the mortgage or 
not ; but no stamp Is necessary upon the 
endorsement of a negotiable instrument, 
even though the legal effect of such In dorse- 
ment is to transfer a mortgage by which 
the instrument is secured. 

An assignment of a lease wltliin the mean- 
ing and intent of Schedule B, is an assign- 
ment of the leaeeTiold, 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 rignta, or some portion of the rights, of 
tbe lessee, or of the person standing in nis 
place. A transfer by the lessor of his part 
of a lease, neither giving nor purporting 
to give a claim to the leasehold, or to any 
part thereof, but simply a right to the rents, 
&c., is snbject to stamp tax as a contract 
or agreement only. 

The stamp tax upon a Are Insurance 
policy is based upon the premium. 

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

should not he reckoned as premium in de- 
termining the amount of stamp taxes upon 

When a policy of Insurance properly 
stamped has been issuea and lost, no stamp 
is necessary upon another issued by the 
same company to the same party, covering 
the same property, time, &o., and designed 
simply to supply the loss. The second 
policy should recite the loss of the first. 

An Instrument which operates as ^he re- 
newal ofa policy of insurance, is subject to 
the same stamp tax as the policy. 

When a policy of insurance is issued for 
a certain time, whether it be for one year 
only or for a term of years, a receipt for 

Eremium, or any other instrument which 
as the legal effect to continue the contract 
and extend its operation beyond that time, re- 
quires the same amount of revenue stamps 
as the policy Itself; but such a receipt as 
Is usually given for the payment of the 
monthly, quarterly, or annual premium, is 
not a renewal within the meaning of the 
statute. The payment simply prevents the 
policy from expiring, by reason of non-per- , 
formance of its conaitions ; a receipt given 
for such a -payment requires a two-cent 
stamp, if the amount received exceeds 
twenty dollars, and a two-cent stamp only. 
When, however, the time of payment has 
passed, and a tender of the premium is not 
Bufiicient to bind the company, but a new 
policy or a new contract in some form, with 
the mutuality essential to every contract, 
becoines necessary between the insurer and 
the insured, the same amonnt of stamps 
should be used as that required upon the 
original policy. 

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

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

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

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

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

When am attested copy ofa writ or other 



process is nsedhya sheriff or other person 
m making personal service, or in attaching 
property, a flve-cent stamp should be affix- 
ed to the certificate of attestation. 

A marriage certificate issued by the offi- 
ciating clergyman or magistrate, to be re- 
tnmeoto aw officer of a State, county, city, 
town, or other municipal corporation, to 
constitute part of a public record, reguires 
no stamp; but if it is to be retained by 
the parties, a five-cent stamp should be af- 

The Btamp tax upon a bill of sale, by 
which any ship or vessel, or any part there- 
of, is conveyed to or vested in any other 
person or persons, is at the same rate as 
that imposed upon 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- 

Written or printed assignments of agree- 
ments, bonds, notes not neg;otiable, and 
of all other instmm.^ts the assignments 
pf which are not particularly specified in 
the foregoing spheaQle, should be stamped 
as agreements. ' ' ' 

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

When a "power of attorney or proxy for 
voting at any election for officers of any 
incorporated company or society, except 
religions, charitable, or literary societies, 
or public cemeteries," is signed by sever- 
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 of ten cents for each 
and every signature; one or more stamps 
may be used representing the whole amount 

A notice from landlord to tenant t» 
quit poBsesridn of premises requires no 

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. 

a a vessel clears in ballast and has no 
cargo whatever, no stamp is necessary; 
Witifshe has any, however small theamount 
—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 belon^ng 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 bonit mm should be stamped 
according to the amount of property re- 
mainingto be administered npon thereun- 
der, regardless of the stamps upon the orig- 
inal letters. 

A mere copy of an instrumentis not sub- 
ject to stamp duty unless it is a certified 
one, in which case a five-cent stamp should 
be affixed to the certificate of the person 
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 as 
the other, and each should be stamped as 
an original.

Infallible Rules for Detecting Counterfeit or. 
Spurious Bank Notes. 

BiTLiE 1st.— Examine the Bbading of the 
letters in title of Bank called LATBSTrpitE, 
which in genuine notes presents an eVen, 
straight, light and silky appearance, gen- 
erally so flne and smooth as to appear to he 
all in one solid, pale body. In the connter- 
feit the lines are coarse and irregnlar, and 
in many of the longer lines breaks will be 
perceived, thns presenting a very inferior 
finish in comparison togennine 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, prodace an endless 
variety of figures ; sezthkokeobhtstaitp 
ATTACHED. The fine line alone is the 
unit which enables you to detect spurious 
work. In the counterfeit, the bbpbxsxntbd 
white lines are coarse, irregular, and cross 
each other in a confused, inegnlar manner, 
thns producing . blurred and imperfect 

8d,— Examine the form and features of 
all human figures on the note. In (he 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 dearly seen; the nose, month and 
chin, well formed, natural and expressive ; 
the lips are slightly pouting, and the chin 
well thrown out;, and the delicate shading 
of the neck perfectly harmonizes with the 
rest of the figure. Observe the fingers and 
toes ;. they should be clearly and accniatel^ 
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- 
feit the female figure, does not bear the 
natural prominence in outlines; observe, 
the eyes and shading surrounding does not 
present the lifelike appearance It should. 
The fingers and toes are not properly and 
proportionately defined ; the hair does not 
Dear that soft and finished appearance as in 
the genuine. 

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

flne letters. Counterfeits never bear the 
imprint perfect. This rule should be strict- 
ly obserred, as It Is infeUible in detecting 

5th. — ^In the genuine note the landscapes 
are well toiened ; trees and shrubs are 
neatly drawn; the lim1>s well proportioned, 
and the foliage presenting a fine natural 
appearance ; ^ear 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 Burronnding; country, is always clear 
and distinct. The small figures in the 
iiackgronnd are always plainly seen, and 
their ontlines 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 careftilly the car most 
distant. In the counterfeit the landscape 
is usually po6rly 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 clonds are to be aeen, the 
unnatural effect is obvious. Domestic 
animals are generally poorly executed, 
particularly the. head and limbs ; the eyes 
are seldom clearly defined. Ships are 
poorly drawn, the texture of the canvass 
coarse and inferior in style of workman- 
ship, thns giving an artificial appearance. 
Railroad cars are also poorly executed ; the 
car farthest Ji'om the eye is usually the 
most imperfect. The perspective is always 
imperfect, the figures in the background 
can sidldom be recognized. 

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



too dark, but from the back or flniBh of the 
white lines yon have a sure test. Again 
observe particularly the words " FlTe " or 
" Ten Dollars " as the case may be, denot- 
ing the denomination of' the note; the 
parallel outlines and shading (if any) are 
coarse and imperfect. Alterations are fre- 
quently made by pasting a greater denomi- 
nation oyer a smaller, out by holding the 
bill up to the light, the fraud will be per- 
ceived. Another method resorted to is to 
cut out the flanres in the dies as well as 
the words onedollar, or the words two or 
three as the case may be, and with a sharp 
eraser, scrape down the ends and also the 
edges of the pieces to be inserted ; when 
the pieces thus prepared are affixed they 
are hardly perceivable ; but by passing 
the note through the hand, so as to feel 
the die both with the finger and thumb 
at. the same time, the fraud will be de- 
tected by the stiflhess 0% the outer 
edges, " occasioned by the gum or method 
adopted" in afixing the parts. The letter 
S should always be examined, as in many 
alterations it is pasted or stamped at the 
end of the word " dollar ;" and even when 
stamped there, the carrying out of the out- 
lines for its shading will readily ^ow the 
fraud. Bills of broken banks are fremient- 
ly altered by extracting the name of bank, 
state and town; they may readily be de- 

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

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


What will my readers ;^Te to know how 
to get rich? Sow, Iwul not vouch that 
the following rules will enable every per- 
son who may read them to acquire wealth ; 
but this I will answer for, that If ever a 
man does grow rich by honest means, and 
retains his wealth for any length of time, 
he must practice upon the pnnci^es laid 
down In the following essay.. The re- 
marks are not original with me, but I 
strongly commend uiem to the attention 
of every young man, at least aS' affbrding 
the true secret of success in attaining 
wealth. A single pemsal of such an essay 
at an Impressible moment, has sometimes 
a very wonderflil effect upon the disposi- 
tion and character. ., „ . .„ 

Fortune, they say, is a fickle dame— nill 
of her ft«aks and caprices; who blindly 
distributes her favors without the slightest 
discrimination. So inconstant, so \faver- 
Ing is she represented, tihat her most feith- 
fuF votaries can place no reliance on her 
promises. Disappointment, they tell us, 
18 the lot of those who make offermgsat 

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

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

Foremost in the list of requisites are 
honesty and strict integrity in every trans- 
action of life. Let a man have the reputa- 
tion of being &ir and upright Inhis deal- 
ings and he vriH possess the confidence of 
all vfho know him. Without these qualities 
every other merit vriU prove unavailing. 
Aekconceml^ a man, ^'Isheactiv»and 
capable?" Yes. "IndnBtrionB, temper- 
ate and regular in his habits f"— Oh yes. 
"Is he honest! Is he ■ tmstworthy f " 
Why, as to that, I am sorry to say that he 
is not to be trusted; he needs watching; 
he is a little tricky, and wUl take an undue 
advantage, if he can, "Then I will have 
nothing to do with him," will be the in- 



variaWe reply. Why, then, is honesty the 
best yolioy ? Becanse, wlthont It, yon will 
get a baa name, and everybody will shnn 

A character for knavery will prove an in- 
Burmountable 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 impossible for a dishonest man to 
acquire wealth by a regular process of bus- 
iness, because he Is shunned as a depreda- 
tor upon society. 

Needy men are apt to deviate ttam 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 j 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 getlimg. The man 
known to be scrupnloufly 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 payments, 

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

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

Judge of men by what they do, not by 
what mey 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 un^er 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 yon a loss, possess yourself, of every 
available * information relative to tilm. 
Learn his history, his habits, inclinations 
and propensities: Us reputation for honor, 
industry, ftugality andT punctuality; his 
prospects, resources, supports, advantages 
and tisadvantages ; bis intentions and mo- 
tives of action; who are his fl-iends and 
enemies, and what are his good or bad qual- 
ities. Youmajr learn a man'sgood qualities 
and advantages from his Mends^ts bad 
qualities and disadvantages bom. his ene- 
mies. Make due allowance for exaggeration 
in both. Finally, examine carefuuy before 
engaging; in anything, and act with energy 
afterwards. Have the hundred eyes of 

Argus beforehand, and the hundred hands 
of Briarins afterwards. • 

Order and system in the management of 
business mnst not be neglected. Nothing 
contributes more to dispatfch. Have a 
place for everything and everything in its 
place ; a time for everything, and everyr • 
thing in its time. Do first what jiresses 
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 confhsion, little or nothing is 
accomplished, and business is attended to 
with neither pleasure nor profit. 

A polite, afi'able deportment is recom- 
mended. Agreeable manners contribute 
powerfully to a njan's success. Take two 
men, possessing pqual advantages in every 
other respect, bnt 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 consider a very important 
principle in the business of money-getting, 
namely — ^Industry — persevering, ihdefau- 

table attention to business. Persevering 
iligence is the Philosopher's stone, which 
tnrns 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 trdly remarked 
that he who follows his amusements in- 
stead of his business, will, in a short time, 
have no bnsiness to follow. 

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

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

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 which are never paid. 
Others, there are, the melee drones of so- 

clety, 'Who pass their days in idleness, and 
snhslst Taj pirating on the hives of the In- 
dastrions. Many who ran a short-Uved 
career of splendid heggary, could they be 
hnt persuaded to adopt a system of rigid 
economy for a few years, mieiht pass the 
remainder of their days In affluence. But 
no I They must keep up appearances, 
they must live like other folks. 

Their debts accumulate; their credit 
fails ; they are harassed by duns, and be- 
sieged by constables and sheriff. In this 
eztremity.'as a last resort, they submit to 
a shameml dependence, or engage in crim- 
inal practices which entail hopeless wretch- 
edness and Infamy on themselves and 

Stick to the business in which you are 
regularly einployed. Let speculators make 
thousands in a year or a day ; mind your 
own regular trade, never turning from it 
to the right hand or to the left, it you are 
a merchant, a professional man, or a me- 
chanic, never bay lots or stocks, unless 
you have surplus money which yon wish 
to invest. Your own business you under- 
stand as well as other men ; but other peo- 
Ele's busiujessyou do not understand. 
et your basiness be some one which is 
useful to the community. All such occu- 
pations possess the elements of profit In 

How to Secure the Public Lands, 



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

Depaktment op the Iktbbioe; I 
Gbn'l Land Obtiob, July 19, 1865. ) 

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

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

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

A list of all the land offices In the United 
States is ftimished by the Department, 
with the seats of the different offices, 
where it Is the duty of the Begister and 
Eeceiver to be in attendance, and give 

Sroper facilities and information to persons 
es&ous of obtaining lands. 
The minimum price of ordinary public 
lands Is fl,25 per acre. The even or re- 
served sections Billing within _ railroad 
grants are increased to double the minimum 
price, being $2,50 per acre. 

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

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

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

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

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


LAW MA:xiMa. 

plying with the Department Circular, dated 
aOlli October, 1868. 

6. The law coi^tnes Homestead entries 
to surveyed lairds; and although, in cer- 
tain States and Territories notedin the sub- 
joined list, pre-emptors may go on land be- 
fore surrey, yet they can onfy establish their 
claim after return of sorre^y, but must file 
their pre-eniption declaration within three 
months after receipt of ofScial plat, at the 
local land-ofSce where the settlement was 
made before survey. Where, however, it 
was made-after survey, the claimant mast 
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 ^ame at any time 
before the date of the public sale of lands 
within the range in which his settlement 
may fall. 

6. All unoffered suryi^ed lands not ac- 
quired under pre-emption, homestead^ ot 
otherwise, under express legal sanction, 
must be offered at public sale under the 
President's Proclamation, and struck off to 
the highest bidder, as required by act of 
April §4, 1880.

Eroperty, commits no Itend, in law, when 
e neglects to tell the purchaser of any 
flaws, defects, or unsounaness in the same. 

36. The opinions of witnesses, as to the 
value of a dog that has been killed, are not 
admissible in evidence. The value of the 
animal is to be decided by the jury. 

37. If any person puts a fence on or plows 
the land of another, he is liable for trespass 
whether the owner has sustained injury or 

38. If a person, who is unable from ill- 
ness to sign his will, has his hand guided

pied by a tenant, he alone can bring the 

40. To. say of a person, "Ifhe does not

41. In an action for slander, the party 
making the complaint must prove the words 
allegeiy other words of like meaning will 
not suffice. • 

42. In a suit of damages for seduction, 
proof of premancy, and the birth of a child, 
is not essential. It is sufficient if the ill- 
ness of the girl, whereby she was unable to 
labor, was produced by shame for the seduc- 
tion ; and this is such a loss of service as 
will sustain the action. 

43. Addressing to a wife a letter contain- 
ing matter defamatory to the character of 
her husband is a publication, and renders 
the writer amenable to damages. 

44. A parent cannot sustain an action for 
any wrong done to a child, unless he has in- 
curred some direct pecuniary injury there- 
from in consecLuence of some loss of ser-

accident happens in a place to whiSi his 
master's business does not call him ; but if

pose of his own, and undertaken without 
the knowledge and consent of his master,

46. An emigrant depot is not a nuisance 

47. A railroad track through the streets is 
not a nuisance in law. 



48. If an agreement upon which a party 
relies he oral only, it must he proved by 
evidence. But if the contract he reduced 
to writing, it proves itself; and'now no 
evidence whatever is receivable for the 
0011)096 of varying the contract or aifecting 
Its obligations. The reasons are obvious. 
The law prefers written to oral evidence, 
from its greater precision and certainty, 
and because It is less open to fraud. And 
where parties have closed 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.— 

49. Delivery of a husband's goods by a 
wife to her adulterer, he having knowledge 
that she has taken them without her hus- 
band's authority, is sufficient to sustain an 
indictment for larceny against the adul- 

50. The fact that the insui-er was not in-

such money or property.

tion been found an habitual drunkard, he

54. Any person dealing with the repre- 
sentative of a deceased person, is presumed, 
in law, to he fully apprized of the extent of 
such representative's authority 'to act in 
behalf of such estate. 

65. In an action against a railroad com- 
pany, by a passenger, to recover damages 
for injuries sustained, on the road. It is npt 
compulsory upon the plaintiff to prove ac- 
tual negligence in the defendants ; hut it 
is obligatory on tbe part of the latter to 
prove that the injury was not owing to any 
hiult 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 baggage. Money in a trunk, not 
exceeding the amount reasonably required

the joumsy which he has undertaken, is a 
part of his baggage ; and in case of its loss, 
while at any inn,lhe plaintiff may prove its 
amount by his own testimony. 

67. The deed of a minor Is not absolutely 
void. The court is authorized- to judge, 
fl-om the instrument, whether It is void or

or unfavorable to the interests of the minor. 

68. A married woman can neither sue nor 
be sued on any contract made by her dur- 
ing her marriage, icxcept in an action relat- 
ing to her individual property. The action 
must be commenced either by or against

is brought on a contract made by her be- 
fore her marriage, that sheis to be joined 
as a co-plaintiff or defendant, with her hns-

dicially declared a Innatic is void. 

60. Money paid voluntarite- in any trans- 
action, with a knowledge of the facts, can- 
not he rejcovered. 

61. In all cases of specia. contract for 'ser- 
vices, except in the case of a minor, the 
plaintiff can recover only the amoant stip- 
ulated in the contract. 

6a. A wife is a competent witness with 
her husband, to prove the contents of a lost 
trunk, or when a party. 

63. A wife cannot be convicted of receiv- 
ing stolen goods when she received them 
of ner hnsband. 

64. Insurance against fire, by lightning or 
otherwise, does not cover loss by lightnmg

66. Failure to prove plea of justification, 
in a case of slander, aggravates the offence.

sell by sample that constitutes a sale by j 
sample, not the mere exhibition of a speci- 
men of the goods.

limitations, ^en sued by a client for mon- 
ey which he has collected and Mled to pay 

71. Testimony given by a deceased wit- 
ness on first trial, isnot required to be re- 
peated verbatim on the second. 

72. A person entitling himself to a reward 
offered for lost property, has a lien upon the 

Sroperty for the reward : but only when a 
efinite reward is offered. 

78. Confession by a prisoner must be vol- 
untarily made,to constitute evidence against 

74. The defendant in a snit must be serv- 
ed with process; but service of such pro- 
cess upon his wife, even in his absence from 
the State, is not, in the absence of statuto- 
ry provisions, sufficient. 



75. The measnre of damages In trespass 
for cutting timber, is its valae as a chattel 
on the land where it was felled, and not the 
market price of the lumher manufactured. 

76. To support an indictment for mali- 
cious mischief in killing an animal, mal- 
ice towards its owner must be shown, not 
merely passion excited against the animal 

77. No action can be maintained against 
a sheriff for omitting to account for money 
obtained hpon an execution within a reas- 
onable time. He has till the return day to 
render such account. 

78. An interest in the profits of an enter- 
prise, as profits, renders the party hold- 
irib it a partner in the enterprise, and 
makes him presumptively liable to share 
any loss. 

79. Males can marry at fourteen, and fe- 
males at twelve years of age. 

80. All cattle found at large upon any pub- 
lic road, can be driven by any person to the

lane, road, or other public thoroughfare, 
'may be lawfully killed for the same: 

82. A written promise for the payment 
of such amount as may come into the hands 
of the promisor, is held to be an instru- 
ment in writing for the payment of money. 

.83. The declaration of an agent is not ad- 
missible to establish the act of^ency.— 
But when other proper evidence is given, 
tending to establish the fact of agency, it 
is not error to admit the declarations of the 
agent, accompanying acts, though tend- 
ing to show the capacity in which he act- 
eoT When evidence is competent in one 
respect and incompetent in another, it is 
the duly of the court to admit it, and con- 
trol its effects by suitable instructions to 
the jury. 

84. The court has a general power to re- 
move or Suspend an attorney for such im- 
moral conduct as rendered him unworthy 
of confidence in his official capacity. 

85. Bankruptcy is pleadable in bar to all 
actions and in aU courts, and this bar may 
be avoided whenever it is interposed, by 
showing fraud in the procurement of the 
discharge, or a violation of any of the pro- 
visions of the bankrupt act. 

. 86. An instmment in the form of a deed, 
but limited to take effect at the termination 
of the grantor's natural life, is held to be a 
deed, not a will.

ulent, simply because the buyer was at the 
time unable to make the payment agreed

close material flu:ts known to each, but of

thing, however slight, to mislead or deceive 
the other.

fordied when notice of acceptance of the of- 
fer is duly deposited in the post-ofSce, pro-

the party making the offer expressly re- 
quires that if it IS accepted, speedy notice 
of acceptance shall be given him. 

91. The date of an Instmment is so far a 
material part of it, that an alteration of 
the date by the holder after execution, 
makes the Instrument void. 

92. A corporation niay maintain an action 
for libel, for words published of them and 
relating to its trade or business, by which 
it has incurred special damages. 

93. It is unprofessional for a lawyer who 
has abandoned his case without trying it, 
a term or two before trial, to claim a fee 
conditional upon the success of his client, 
although his client was snccessftal. 

94. Although a party obtaining damages 
for- injuries received through the default of 
another, was himself guilty of negligence, 
yet that will not defeat his recovery, unlesff 
his negligence contributed to cause the in- 

95. A person may contract to labor foran- 
other during life, in consideration of receiv-

be set aside if entered into to deprive them 
of his future earnings. 

96. A grantor may by express terms ex- 
clude the bed of a river, or a highway, 
mentioned as boundary; but if without 
language of exclusion a line is described as 
' alongP or ' upon,' or as ' running to ' the 
highway or river, or as *by,' or ' running to 
the bank of the river; these expressions 
carry the grante^to the center of the high- 
way or river. 

97. The court will take pains to construe 
the words used in a deed m such a way as 
to effect the intention of the parties, how- 
ever unskillftilly the Instrument may be 
drawn. But a conrt of law cannot exchaflge 
an intelligible word plainly employed in a

be that the word used was used by mistake

would expect, and the husband shoold 
furnish, if the parties lived harmoniouBly

107. Where a purchaser at a Sheriff's sale 
has bid the full price, of property under

108. When notice of protest la properly

the day of the dishonor ; if not, it must be 
mailed for the mail of the next day ; ex- 
cept that if there ia none, or it closes at an

As Antliomel 1)7 Act of Congress-AspM M7 28, 1866. 


In every system of Weights and MeasnTes 
it Is necessary to have what are called 
"Standards," as the pound, yard, gallon, 
&c., to be divided and multiplied into 
smaller and largerparts and denominations. 
The definition and construction 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, ^he nominal Standards in the new 
system are the Mstsb, the Abb, the Liteb, 
andtheGKAu. The only r«a/ Standard, the 
one by which all the other standards are 
measured, and from which the system de- 
rives its name of " Metric," Is the Mbtbb. 

Is used for all measures of length, distance, 
breadth, depth, heighth, &c., and was in- 
tended to be, and is very nearly, one ten- 
millionth of the distance on the earth's 
surface ftom the equator to the pole. It Is 
about 39^ Inches, or 3 feet, 3 inches and 
3 eighths, and is to be substituted for the 

Is a Burfiice whose side is ten Meters, and 
is equal to 100 square Meters or about 4 
square rods. 

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

^~ A cubic Meter (or Kilollter) is called 
a stere, and is also nsedas a standard in cer- 
tain cubic measures. 


Is the TTnit 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 15X 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 multipleB of 10, 100, &c The 
successive subordinate parts are designa- 
ted by the prefixes ,Deci, Centi andMiUi; 
the successive multiples by Deka, Hecto, 
EiloandHyria; each having its own nu- 
merical signification, as willoe more clear- 
ly seen in the tables hereinafter given. 

The terms used may, at first sight, have 
a formidable appearance, seem difficult to 
pronounce, and to retain in memoiy, and to 
be, 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 es- ■ 
perience. The importance, also, of con- 
formity iu the use of commercial terms, on 
the part of the United States, with the 
practice of the many nations la which the 
system, with its premnt mnmnelature, has 
already been adopted, must greatly over- 
balance the comparatively slight objection 
alluded to.

Dlscoi/nt and Premlnm. 

When a person buys an article for tl.OOr- 
20 per cent ofE, (or discount,) and sellB It 
again for $1,00, he makes a profit of 36 per 
cent, on his investment. Thug : He pays 
80 cents and sells for $1,00— a giun of SO 
cents, or 35 per cent of 80 cents. And for 
any transacnon where the sale or purchase 
of gold, silver, or currency is concerned, 
the following rules will apply in all cases. 

Rule 1st.— To find premnim when dis- 
count is given: MMtlply 100 by rate of 
discount and dividoby lOu, less rate of dis- 

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

Suppose A has $140' in currency, which 
he wishes to exchange for gold, when gold 
is 27 per cent, premium, ho* much gold 
should he receive 1 In this case the pre- 
mium is given, consequently we must find 
the discount on A's currency and subtract 
it from the $140, as per rule 2d, showing 
the discount to be a tnfle more than 21 per 
cent, and that he should receive $110.60 in

Pacts on Advertising. 

The advertisements in an ordinary num- 
ber of the London Times exceed 2,500. The 
annual advertising bills of one London firm 
are. said to amount to $200,000; and three 
others are mentioned who each annually 
expend for the purpose $60,000. The ex- 
pense for advertising the eight editions of 
the "Bncyclopoedla 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 tney have acquired, 
drop graduauy out of pnblic view, and be 
succeeded by flmu pf 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 out of ob- 
scurity into publicity; the latter believe 
that ttieir publicity is so 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 Girqrd, than whom no shrewder 
business man ever lived, need to say : I 
have always considered advertisins 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 ^oney thus spent is 
well laid out ; as by keeping my business 
continually before the public it has secured 
me many sales that I would otherwise have

Brilliant IVbiteirasb. 

Many have heard of the brilliant Btncco 
whitewash on the east end of the Presi- 
dent's (lonse at Washington. The fbUow- 
ing is a recipe for It ; it is gleaned flrom the 
National Intelligencer, with some addi- 
tional improTements learned by experi- 
ments : Take half a bnshel of nice nn- 
slacked lime, slack it with boiling water, 
cover it during the process to keep in the 
steam. Strain the liquid through a fine 
sieve or strainer, and add to it a peck of 
salt, previously well dissolved in warm wa- 
ter ; three pounds of ground rice, boiled to 
a ttun paste, and stiired 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 Are, 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 m a kettle on a 
portable fhmace. It is said that about a 
pint of this mixture will cover a square 
yard upon the ontside of a house if proper- 
ly applied. Brushes more or less small mav 
be used according to the neatness of the job 
required. It answers as well as oU paint 
for wood, brick or stone, and is cheaper. 
It retains its brilliancy for many years. 
There is nothing of the kind that will 
compare with it, either for inside or outside 

Coloring matter may be put in and mad^ 
of any shade you like. Spanish brown 
stirred in will make red pinl^ more or less 
deep according to the quantity. A delicate 
tinge of this is very pretty, for inside walls. 
Finelypulverized common clay, well mixed 
with Spanish brown, makes a reddish stone 
color. Yellow-ochre stirred in makes yel- 
low wash, but chrome goes further, and 
makes a color generally esteemed prettier. 
In all these cases the darkness of the shades 
ofcoorse is determined by the quantity of 
coloring used. It is difficult to make rules, 
because tastes are different. It would be 
best to \iv 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 tne 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 yon use, 
before it is stirred in the whole mixture. 
If a larger quantity than five gallons be 
wanted, the same proportion should be ob-' 
served. • 

TSLoxv to get a Horse but of a 

The great difficulty 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 from such i^use, having tried 

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

Tbe Chemical Barometer. 

Take a long narrow bottle, such as an old- 
fashioned 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 
win readily do by slight agitation, add the 
following mixture: Take water, nine 
drachms : nitrate . of potash (saltpetre) 
thirl7-eight grains; and muriate of am- 
monia (sal ammoniac) thirty-eight grains. 
Dissolve these salts in the water pnor to 
mixing with the camphorated sjint ; 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 prognostioator of a coming storm or 
ofa sunny sky. 

Iieech Barometer. 

Take an eight onnce phial, and put in it 
three gills ofwater,andplacelnita healthy 
leech, changing the water in summer once 
a week, and in winter once in a fortnight, 
and it will most accurate^' prognosticate 
the weather. If the weanfer is to he 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 lod^gs and remain 
there till the weather is settled; if we are 
to have wind, it will move through its habi- 
tation with amazing swiltness, 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 GOntinufi^y out of the water, and 
discover great uneasiness in violent throes 
and convulsive-like motions : in frost as in 
dear 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 the phial. The top should be cov- 
ered over with a piece of muBlin. ^ 

To Mkascbb QBAm rs A Bra.— Find the 
number of cubic feet, from which deduct 
onA-Mth. The remainder is the number of 
bushels— allowing, however, one bushel 
extra to every ^SA. Thus in a remainder of 
324 there would be 225 bushels. In a re- 
mainder of 448 there would be 460 bushels, 




> [The following recipee are Tonched 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.— Fob.] 


Bins Boira asd apATor.— 8 oz. each of 
Spanish flies and Venice turpentine; 1 oz. 
each of aqua ammonia and euphorbium : ii 
oz. red precipitate ; }i oz. corrosive subli- 
mate ; IJf lbs. lard. When thoroughly pul- 
verized and mixed, heat cartftally so as not 
to burn, and pour off free from sediment . 

Forrmg-bone, mb in thoroughly, after 
removing hair, once in 48 hours. For spav- 
in, once in 24 hours. Cleanse and press 
out the matter on each application. 

PoUi-Bvn,.— #im arable V oz; common 
potash Xoz; extracti of belladonna }i&x. 
Put 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 bel-eady for 
use. Use with a syringe after having 
cleansed with soap suds, and repeat once 
in two days till a cure is affected. 

SoocBB. — Powdered tormentil root, giv- 
en iu milk, from S to 5 times daily till cured. 

Gbbabe-Hbbl AMD SoBATcass.— Sweet 
oil 6 ozs^ borax % ozs.; sugar of lead 2 ozs. 
Wash off with dish water, and, after it is 
dry, apply the mixture twice a day. 

Chouo ih Horbbs.— To Jf pt. of warm 
water add 1 oz. laudanum and 3 ozs. spirits 
of turpentine, and repeat the dose in about 
% of an hour, adding }i oz. powdered aloes, 
if not relieved. 

BoTS.— Three doses. Ist. 3 qts milk and 
1 of molaases. 2d. 15 minutes after, 2 qts. 
warm sage tea. 8d. After the expiration 
of 80 ^ninutes, sufficient lard to pt^sic— 
Never fails. 


Pilbs^Pbbi'botlt Cubbd.— Take flour of 
sulphnrl oz., rosin 3 ozs,, pulverize and mix 
well together. (Color with carmine or 
cochineal, if you like.) 2JoM— What will 
lie on a five cent piece, night and morning, 
washing the parte freely m 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, daUy, nntil the cure is affected. 

SuBB CnBB poB CoBirs, Warts !aijd 
CHn.BTiATWB.— Take of nitric and mnriatic 
acids, blue vitriol and salts of tartar, 1 oz. 
eaclf. 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. 

Hooji-An, IN Sheep.— Mix 3 ozs. each of 
butter of antimony an<} mnriatic acid with 
1 oz. of pulverized white vitriol, and apply 
once or twice a wee"k to the bottom of the 
foot. . 

CoMMoif Ehbttmatism.- Kerosene oil 2 
ozs.; neats-foot oil 1 oz.; oil of organum }i 
oz. Shake when used, and rub and heat in 
twice daily. 

Vbrt Fine Soap, Qoioklt and Chbap- 
I.T Made.— Fourteen pounds of bar soap 
in a half a boiler of hot water ; cut up fine ; 
add three pounds of sal-soda made flue; 
one ounce of pulverized rosin ; stir it often 
till all is dissolved ; Just as you 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. 



, Water Prooi" fob Lsathxr. — ^Take lin- 
seed oil 1 pint; yellow wax and wWte tur- 
pentine each a ozB. Burgnndy pitch 1 oz., 
melt and color with lampblack. 

To Zbbp Ctdsr SwiiiT.— Put into each 
barrel, immediately after making, a lb. 
ground mustard, 3 oz. salt and 3 oz. pulver- 
ized chalk. Stir them in a little cider, pour 
them into the barrel, and shake up well. 

AoTTB Ctnoj.— Procure IJjf table-spoons of 
fresh mandrake root juice, (by pounding) 
and mix with the same quantity of molas- 
ses, and take in three equal doses, 2 hours 
a part, the whole to be taken 1 hour before 
the chill comes on. Take a swallow of 
some good bitters before meals, for a conple 
of weeks after the chills are broken, and Uie 
cure 'will be permanent. 

CtjKB poB Salt Hhbum or Soubtt.— 
Take of the pokeweed, anytime 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 i^to an earth- 
en mug: add to it fresh wdfer and bees^ 
wax Bufncient to make an ointment of com- 
mon consistency ; simmer the whole' over 
a Are till thoroughly mixed. When cold, 
mb 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- 
pa red in the same way. 


To lime whitewash, add for a fastener, sul- 
phate of zinc, and shade with any color yon 
choose, as yellow ochre, Venetian red, etc. 
It ontlasts oil paint. 

FxLOHB.— Stir 1 oz. of Venice turpentine, 
with a tea-spoonftal 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. 

Wateb-Pboof Blackius ans Habness 
Polish. — Take two and a half ounces gum 
shellac and half a pint of alcohol, and set 
in a warm place until dissolved ; tti^n add 
two and a half ounces Venice turpentine 
to neutralize the alcohol ; add a tablespoon- 
fhl of lampblack. Apply vrith a fine sponge. 
It will give a good {)onsii over oil or grease. 

MosQtnTos. — 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 Outbids Paint.— Take two parts 
(in bulk) of water lime ground fine, one part 
(in bulk) ofwhite lead ground in oil. Mis 
them thoroughly, by afflins best boiled lin- 
seed oil, enough to prepare a to pass through 
a paint mill, after which temper with oil 
tin it can be applied with a common paint 
brnsh. Make any color to suit. It will last 
three times as long as lead paint, and cost 
not one-fourth as much. It is Supebiob. 

Cube fob a Couoh.- A strong decoction 
of the leaves of the pine, sweetened with 
loaf sugar. Take a wme-glass warm on go- 
ing to hed, and half an hour before eating 
three times a day. The above is sold as a 
cough syrup, and is doing wonderful cures, 
and it is sold at a great profit to the manu- 

B.O-W to Jndge a Borae. 

A correspondent, contrary to old maxims, 
undertakes to judge the character of ahorse 
by outward appearances, and offers the fol- 
lowing suggestions, the result of his close 
observation and long expen^ce; 

If the color be light sorrell, or chestnut, 
his feet, legs and fiice white, these are 
marks of kindness. If he is broad and fhll 
between the eyes, he may be depended on 
as 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 ma^ be so far gentle as 
not to scare ; but he will have too much go- 
ahead in him to be safe with everybody. 

Ifyouwantafool, but a horse of great 
bottom, get a deep bay, with not a white 
hair about him. U his lace is a little dish- 
ed, so much the worse. Let no man ride 
such 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- 

measarement of Hay In tbe 
'Slow or Stack.— It is often desirable, 
where conveniences for weighing are not at 
hand, to purchase 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 rule adopted by 
those who have tested it, is that a cube, 
each Bld« of which shall measure eight feet, 
of mlid Timothy hay , as taken from mow or 
bottom of Btack will weigh a ton. The 
rule may be varied for upper part of mow 
or stack according to pressure.

THUS COITJYTY was formed froiii Albany and Ot- 
sego, April 6, 1795. A small part of Greene County was annex- 
ed in 1836. The session laws of 1801 define the boundaries of 
the County and of the six towns included in it at that time as 
follows: y > 

" The County of Schoharie shall contain all that part of the 
State bounded easterly by the County of Albany, northerly by 

Eart of the south bounds of the County of Montgomery, as 
ereafter described, westerly by a line beginning at the south- 
west corner of a tract of land formerly granted to John Lyne 
and running thence the following courses and distances as 
marked by order of the Surveyor General; south twenty-one 
degrees and forty-eight minutes west, two hundred and nine- 
teen chains, to the place where Joshua Tucker formerly resided ; 
thence south seven degrees and forty-eight minutes west, one 
hundred and ninety-three chains to the eastermost line of a 
tract of land known by the name of Belvidere Patent ; thence 
south nine degrees east, six hundred and ninety-five chains to a 
certain hill known by the name of Grosvenor's Hill ;. thence 
with a direct line from the northwest corner of Stroughburgh 
Patent ; thence with a direct line to the most northerly corner 
of Harpersfield on the Charlotte or Adegataugie Branch of the 
Susquehanna River; thence south-easterly along the north 
bounds of Harpersfield to Lake Utsarantho, and southerly by 
a line formerly run from the head of Kaaters Creek where the 
same issues out of the southerly side or end of a certain lake or 
pond lying in the blue mountains to the said Lake Utsayantho, 
and by part of the north bounds of the County of Greene." 

It is an interior county, lying south-east of the center of the 
State, is centrally distant 35 miles from Albany and contains 

Schoharie is a name of Indian origin, and signifleB " driftwood." To-wos-a<^u>-fu>r was 
the Indian orthographr, and it has been spelled varioaaly according to the person writing 
it; as Shoary, SKohary, iShuelton/, Sehohon &c. At a place a sboit distance above Hid- 
dlebnrgh, the Linekill and Little Schoharie enter the Hchoharle Creek fW>ni opposite 
sides, and here drift-wood is said to have accamnlated to such ab extent as to form a 
niitnral bridge, whidi contained a large amount of timber when the place was first 
settled by white men ; hence the name. 


675 square miles. The surface is an upland, broken by moun- 
tains in the south, and by hills in the center and north. A 
northerly spur of the Catskill Mountains lies along the south 
border, the highest summits of ■«rhich are 3,000 feet above tide. 
From these, irregular spurs extend northward, occupying the 
greater part of the County. Many of the summits along the 
east and west borders are from. 800 to 1000 feet above the val- 
leys, and about 8,000 feet above tide. The hills in the north 
are generally rounded and arable to the summits, but in the 
center and south, the declivities are steep and in many cases 
precipitous. The high ridge along the east border and extend- 
ing into Albany County is known as the Helderbergh Moun- 
tains. The hills derive their general outline from the underly- 
ing rocks. The extreme north part of the County is terraced 
like the limestone region further west. Towards the south the 
hills are steeper, and in the shaly region they are broken by 
deep and irregular ravines. In many places the hills bordering 
upon the streams are 1000 feet high, and in some places very 

Schoharie Creek flows north-east through the County, a little 
east of the center. It receives as tributaries from the east, Fox, 
Little Schoharie or Stony, and Keysers Creeks, and PlattenkiH 
and Manorkill. From the west it receives Cripple Bush, Cobles- 
kill, Line, Panther, "West and Minekill Creeks. West and Punch- 
kill flow into the Oobleskill. Charlotte River, a branch of the 
Susquehanna, takes its rise in the west part, and Catskill Creek 
in the south-east part, having its source in a swamp called the 
Vlaie. Utsyantha and Summit lakes are two imall bodies of 
water ; the former being 1,900 feet and the latter 2,150 feet above 
tide. ^ 

The rocks in the County, commencing upon the north bor- 
der and appearing successively towards the south, are those be- 
longing to the Hudson Eiver group, Clinton group, Onondaga 
salt group, Helderbergh series, Hamilton group, Portage and 
Chemung group, and the Catskill group. Among the limestones 
are numerous caves, in which are found minerals particularly 
interesting to mineralogists. Among the most interesting are 
stalactites of pure white, translucent and solid, sulphate of 
barytes, calcite, satin spar, tufa, bog ore, black oxide of mangan- 
ese, sulphate and carbonate of strontia, fluor spar, carbonate of 
iron and arragonite. Fossils in great variety, and peculiar to 
the respective formations, are found in the County. Drift is 
found Scattered over the County to a limited extent, and water- 
linie IS also found. The soils are principally derived from the 
disintegration of the underlying rocks. In the north the soil 
IS a productive clay loam, and m the center and south it is a 


clay and sandy loam, the latter predominaffcing on the south 
hills. The alluvial flats along Schoharie Creek are very fertile. 
Agriculture forms the chief occupation of the inhabitants. 
Spring grains are largely produced, hops are cultivated in the 
west part, and broomcorn on the Schoharie flats. Dairying is 
carried on extensively, especially in the south part. Manufac- 
turing is quite limited and confined to such as is customary in 
an agricultural region. 

The County Seat la located in the village of Schoharie. The 
Court House, which for many years had served the people of the 
County, was burned January 17, 1870. A new one has since 
been erecfeed on the old site, much better adapted to the wants 
of the County. It is built of dressed limestone, is 54 by 57 feet 
in size, and three stories high. The first floor contains the 
rooms appropriated to the County Clerk and the Surrogate, and 
a large kitchen where cooking is done for the prisoners confined 
in the Jail. The second floor is occupied by the Sherifi" and 
his family. The Supervisors also have a room on the same floor. 
The third floor is appropriated to the Court and Jury rooms, 
a gallery over the latter affording additional room. The space 
appropriated to the Court and Bar is elevated a little above the 
general level of the room, and is inclosed by a black walnut 
railing. The building cost only about $20,000, but could not 
be replaced for a much larger sum. The building is considered 
fire proof, the cornices, domes and pinnacles being galvanized 
iron. It is said to have cost less than any other'building* of the 
same size and character in the State. It was built at the ex- 
pense of the Town and County of Schoharie jointly. 

The Jail is a substantial stone building in the rear of the 
Court House. 

The first courts were held in a wagon-house of Johannis 
Ingold, and prisoners were at first sent to the Albany Jail. The 
fii;st meeting of the Judges, Justices and Supervisors, .was held 
December 16,. 1795, and it was decided to locate the County 
buildings two miles west of the present site, but the location 
was changed before the buildings were erected. The first build- 
ings were erected soon after and were burned in 1847. The first 
Court House was erected under the direction of Joost Borst, 
Jr., Jacob Lawyer, Peter Sayder, John H. Shafer and William 
Phrall, Commissioners. Abraham A. Post of Ontario, Alex- 
ander H. Buel of Herkimer, and William Duerof Oswego, were 
appointed to locate the present site. The, first Countj oflQcers 
were William Beekman, First Judge ; who was re-appomted and 
held the office until 1838; Joachim G. Staats, Clerk; Saadb 
Lawyer .Tr., Sheriff; and Stephen A. Becker, Surrogate. 


The Poor House is located upon a farm of 62 acres in the town 
of Middleburgh. The building is two stories with a basement. 
The main part is 35 by 26 feet, and the wing 90 by 26 feet. 
The average number of paupers during the past year has been 
about eighty. 

The Albany and Susquehanna Railroad is located along the 
valley of the Cobleskill, extending through the towns of Esper- 
ance, Schoharie, Cobleskill and Eichmondville. The elevation 
of this road where it enters the County on the east, is 700 feet 
above tide; at Schoharie Creek it is.550feet: at Cobleskill, 900 
feet; at Eichmondville, 1,175 feet, and at thie west line of the 
County, 1,470 feet. The Schoharie Valley and the MMdleburgh 
tfc Schoharie Railroads connect with the A. & S. E. E. atOentral 
Bridge, and extend to Middleburgh, via Schoharie Court House. 
The A. & S. E. E. is now operated by the Delaware & Hudson 
Canal Company, under a lease. 2%e Sharon dk Cherry Valley 
Railroad extendi^ from Cobleskill, along the valley of Westkill, 
through the towns of SeWard and Sharon, to Cherry Valley in 
Otsego County. 

The principal turnpikes in the County in early times were 
the Great Western, built in 1802 and extendii^ to Cherry Val- 
ley, and the Charlotte River Turnpike, built in 1809. The lattes 
formed the great thoi^oughfare to the settlements in Delaware 
County and adjacent regions. Like many other counties, Scho- 
harie partook of the plank road mania, but abandoned it after 
a sacrifice of nearly all the capital invested. 

Previous to the settlement of the County by the whites, a 
number of Indians belonging to the Mohawks, Mohicans, Dela- 
wares, Tuscaroras and Oneidas, uniting togetlier, formed the 
Schoharie tribe and took up their abode along the valley of 
Sch6harie Creek. The Mohicans settled near the mouth of 
the Little Schoharie, in the present town of Middleburgh, while 
the largest settlement of the others was in the present town of 
Fulton. Their principal Chief wag ICariffhoAdonlee, who had 
been a prisoner of the French in Canada, and had married a 
Mohawk woman. This tribe was subordinate to the Six 

"Besides the village of the Mohegans ialready located, the 
bChohane tribe had several others ; one of which was on the 
farni formerly owned l^ Alexander Vrooman, on the west side 
ot the nver. Nearly opposite that, on the other side of the 
river, they had another; and a distance of several miles farther 
up the valley, on the farm of the late Peter P. Snyder, a third. 
At each of the two former tliey had a small castle; and at the 
latter, where they dwelt for many, years after the two nortljiern 


Tillages were abandoned, they had a burying ground. Those 
villages were all within four miles of the present site of the 
Court House. Within the recollection of some now living, 
twenty-one wigwams were yet standing upon the Snyder farm; 
and a few old apple trees still to be seen there, are supposed to 
have been planted by the natives. Near this orchard maay 
burials are said to have been made at their place of sepulture ; 
nor, indeed were the manes of nature's children without com- 
panions, to share the potage taken along at their death ; as a 
portion of the consecrated ground was set apart for the defunct 
slaves of the early Germans. ' 

" The fifth and most important village of the tribe, where 
dwelt Karighondontee and his principal chiefs, was in Vroo- 
man's land ; where they had a strong castle and a place of buriaL 
This castle was built by John Becker, who received from 
Sir William Johnson, as agent for the British government, 
eighty pounds for its erection. It was built at the commence- 
ment of the French war, and constructed of hewn timber. 
The Indians held some four hundred acres of land around it, 
which they leased for several years. Contiguous to this castle, 
along both sides of the river, could have been counted at one 
time seventy huts; and relics of savage ingenuity are now often 
plowed up near its site. An angle of la;nd,, occasioned by a bend 
in the river, on which this castle stood, was called the Wilder. 
Hook, by the Dutch who settled near it, and signified the 
Indian's Corner." — -Simm'a Hist. Schoharie-, 

The number of warriors of the Schoharie tribe has been va- 
riously estimated at from 300 to 600. Their coat of arms was a 
turtle and snake; and they^ placed figures of these animals on 
deeds and writings as an evidence of faith. Whenever land 
was deeded, th^ trees marking the boundaries bore the charac- 
teristic emblem of the tribe. During the wars between the 
British and Erenchj the Indians adhered to the British. A 
band of about 20O remained in the valley, at peace with the 
settlers until the Eevolution, when yielding to the temptinz 
offers of the British, they took up arms against their old neigh- 
bors. Previous to this a pestilence had swept off the greater 
part of the tribe, though the Whites were not affected by ii 

The first white settlement in this County was made in 1711, 
by German Palatinates. They came over the previous year under 
the patronage of Queen Anne of England, and settled at the 
East and West Gamps on the Hudson. On arriving in the val- 
ley of the Schoharie Creek they settled in several villages, or 
dorfs, as they were called) under the direction of seven men who 
had previously been their captains or commissaries. 


" Weiser's dorf, (so called after Conrad Weiser the founder,) 
was the southern village and occupied part of the present site of 
the village of Middleburgh. This 'dorf contained some forty 
dwellings. They were small rude huts, built of logs and earth, 
and covered with bark, grass &c. They were built on both sides 
of the street, which ran nearly east and west, and may have been 
called Weiser street Hai-tman's dorf was the next settlement 
down the river, and was about two miles noWh of Weiser's dorf. 
This was the only one of the settlements called after the Chris- 
tian name of its founder or patroon, his name having been 
Hartman Winteker. This flekken (if the larg'est village in 
seven merited the name,) is said to have contained sixty-five 
dwellings, similar in construction to those spoken of in the 
dorf above. The Germans, (as is the custom of their descend- 
ants,) built their ovens detached from their dwellings; and 
thirteen are said to have answered all the good houseswives of 
Hartman's dorf, the purposes of baking.^ * * * The next 
village north, was in the vicinity of the Court House, and was 
called Brunnen or Bruna dorf,which signified the town of springs. 
There are several springs in this vicininy, and a living one 
which issues from beneath the rooks a little distance south-east 
from the court house, supplies most of the villagers with excel- 
lent water. The prindpal or most infinential man among the 
first settlers at this place was John Lawyer. Some of his de- 
scendants, as also those of some of the Shsefifers and Ingolds, who 
were among the first settlers, still reside near the location of 
their ancestors. The next settlement was in the vicinity of the 
present residence of Dr, 0. H. Van Dyck, about a mile north 
of Bruna dorf, and consisted of Johannes George Smidt, (or 
Smith in English,) with a few followers of the people, for whoni 
he had acted as commissioner at the Camps. Smith is said to 
have had the best house in Smith's dorf, which was thatched 
with straw. ******* pox'a dorf was next to 
Smith's, north, and took its name from William Fox, its leading 
man. He settled about a mile from Smith, in the vicinity of 
Fox's creek, so called after him. The Shyders, Beckers, ZiB|- 
. mars, Balls and Weidmans, now residing along and near that 
stream, are regular descendants of the first settlers. Elias Gar- 
lock, with a few faithful followers, who. doubtless adhered to 
him on account of his great wisdom, which remains to be 
shown, located about two miles farther down the river, near the 
present residence of Jacob Vrooman. This was called Garlocks 
dorf. The Dietzes^ Manns and Sternbergs were timong the first 
settlers at Garlocks dorf, whose descendants still occupy the 

f rounds. The last and most northerly settlement was called 
Lueiskern's dorf, after John Peter Kneiskern, its leading man. 


It was two or three miles from the last mentioned settlement, 
and was made along the east side of the river, opposite the mouth 
of Oobel's kill. The Kneiskerns, Stubrachs, Enderses, Sidneys, 
Berghs, and Houoks, residing in that vicinity, are descendants 
of the original settlers." — Simms Hist. Schoharie. 

The whole number who settled in the County during the 
year 1711, is supposed to be from 600 to 700. The first settlers 
came from Albany on foot, with no vehicle of any kind, and 
not even a horse, but carried all their goods in packs on Ijheir 
backs. Within one week after their arrival, four children were 
born, whose names were Catharine Mattice, Elizabeth Lawyer, 
WilhelmuB Bouck and Johannes Earhart. They left Albany on 
Thursday, sleeping in the open air at night, with fires to keep 
off the wolves. On Saturday they reached, the present site of 
Knoxville, and through some cause that tradition has failed to 
transmit, they had a free fight, from which circumstance the 
place was called by the settlers Fegt Berg or Fighting Hill. As 
no serious injury resulted from this contest, they resumed their 
march, and on Sunday arrived at a toall creek which forms 
part of the boundary between Schoharie and Wright. Here 
they performed their weekly ablution and " while waishing, the 
lice were swimming down the brook, which is called Lousekill 
to this day." As there were no grist mills, the settlers resorted to 
the Stump Mortar or went to Schenectady, carrying their grists 
upon their backs, and in the same manner was the first Skipple 
of wheat brought to the County in the berry, by Lambert 
Sternberg, -who planted it on a piece of ground on the opposite 
side of the river from Garloclcs dorf, where thete had been an 
Indian castle. It was hoed in the spring like a patch of corn, 
and at harvest the one Skipple produced eighty-three. The want 
of horses and cattle was a serious impediment to the progress 
of the early settlements. The first horse was purchased in 
Schenectady by nine individuals of Weiser's dorf. Soon after 
the German" settlement was commenced, the Dutch began a set- 
tlement at Vrooman's Land, on the west side of the river, two 
or three miles above Weisers dorf. Adam Vrooman of Schenec- 
tady, obtained a patent of 1,100 acres, more or less, August 36, 
1714. The tract was afterwards found to contain 1,400 acres. It 
embraced the flats along the creek in the present town of Ful- 
ton, except Wilder Hook, where there was an Indian castle and 
settlement. Mr Vrooman had previously obtained an Indian 
title to the laud, but in 1726 he obtained a new title of the In- 
dians, giving all the land previously conveyed, with the sen- 
tence, " let there be as much as. there will, more or less, for we 
are no surveyors." It was executed with the ensign of the Mo- 
hawk nation, the turtle, wolf and bear. 


The Germans and Dutch did not live-on the most friendly 
termis, the foriner opposing very strongly the settlement of the 
Dutch in Vrooman's land, as shown by the following letter to 
Governor Hunter : .

The Palatinates located upon the land without any title ex- 
cept the word of Queen Anne that they should have their land 
free. They had not long been in possesion before Nicholas 
Bayard, an agent of the British G-overnment, appeated and of- 
fered to give to every householder a deed in the name of his 
Sovereign, of his land, if he would make known the boundaries. 
The settlers were very ignorant, and fearing that the design was 
to bring them under tyrannic landholders, resolved to kill Bay- 
krd and thus establish more firmly the itidependenoe which 
they had for several years enjoyed. Bayard had put up at the 
house of John George Smith, of Smith's dorf, and early next 
morning the settlers assembled,. armed with guns and pitcqforks, 
surrounded 'the house and demanded Bayard, and on Smith's 
refusing to surrender him, the house was besieged; sixty balls 
were fired by the assailants through the roof, and the siege kept 
up until the failing ahimunition and the darkness admonished 
them to desist. Bayard left in the night and went to Schenec- 
tady, whence he sent word that to all who shoul4 appear there 
with a single ear of corn, acknowledge him as the royal agent 
and name the bounds of their land, a free deed should be given. 
As no one called on him he went to Albany and disposed of the 
land to Myndert Schuyler, Peter Van Brugh,Eobert Livingston 
Jr., John Schuyler and William Wileman, to whom a patent 
was given and executed Nov. 3, 1714, in the first year of the 
reign of George L, by Robert Hunter, Governor of the Province. 
This patent began on the northern line of the Vrooman Patent, 
on the west side of the river, and the little Sohohariekill on the 
east, extending north nearly to the south boundary of Mont- 
gomery County, taking in a strip on both sides of the river. 
The intention was to take in all of the flats, but this was npt 
effected, though some curves were made. Lewis Morris and An- 
drus GoeyikanB, who were employed to survey and divide the 
land, finding that a large piece of the fiat at the mouth of the 
' Cobleskill was not taken in, made haste to secure it, as also 
. the flats along Pox's Creek. Finding it difficult to divide their 
land, these patents sometimes running into each oth6r> and 
sometimes leaving a gore, the five first purchasers »greed to 
make joint stock ,with their surveyors, and were afterwards 
known as the Seven Partners. Patents and deeds granted sub- 
sequently, for lands lying a^djacent to those of the Seven Part- 
ners, were sometimes bounded in such a manner as to infringe 


on their lands, and gave rise t9 much' litigation. Suits for parti- ' 
tion T^re brought in the Courts in 1819—25—26—28 and '29, 
when they were finally adjusted. 

After the Seven Partners received- their title to the Schoharie 
flats, they called on the German settlers to purchase, take leases 
or quit them altogether, but they stubbornly refused, still rely- 
ing on the word of Queen Anne. Mild measures having failed, 
the partners appealed to the strong arm of the law. A sheriff 
from Albany, named Adams, was sent to apprehend some of the 
boldest of the trespassers and frighten others into a compro- 
mise. Adams stopped at Weiser's dorf, and attempted to arrest 
a man, when a mob immediately collected, Adams was knocked 
. down, dragged through the mud and finally rode upon a rail 
throiagh most of the settlements, suffering as he went such iii- 
dignities as the excited rabble saw fit to heap u|Jt)n him. For 
some time after this outrage the settlers of Schoharie were very 
cautious about visiting Albany ; at first sending their wives 
for salt and such other necessaries as could not be obtained else- 
where, the men not daring to appear there except on Sunday, 
and were careful to leave the same night. At, length suspicion 
having been allayed, several of the Schoharie citizens ventured 
to Albany for salt, when they were arrested and committed to 
jail. The most notorious of the' party, among whom were Con- 
rad Weiser, Jr., were placed in the dungeon. Great was the 
consternation when the news of this outrage reached Schoharie, 
and a meeting of the citizens was called, when it was decided 
to draw up a petition setting forth their grievances and delegate 
;three of their number to lay it before the King. This peti- 
tion was entrusted to Conrad Weiser, Casselman and 

one other. The parties imprisoned at Albany were compelled 
to sign a statement of their .treatment of Bayard and Adams 
before they were released, and they agreed also to take leases and 
pay the rent or purchase their lands. Weiser and his comrades 
proceeded to England and shortly after presented their petition, 
but were horror stricken to find a statement of their treatment 
of Bayard and Adams already in the hands of the King. Their 
guilt was manifest and they were immediately imprisoned in 
the Tower. After a time they were released and permitted to 
return home. Many o£the settlers concluded to purchase their 
lands, but Weiser and sixty families removed to Berks County, 
Pa. Some removed to German Flats and others to Stone Arabia. 

Petef Vrooman, son of the patentee of "Vrooman's Land, 
commenced improvements soon after the purchase, and settled 
there. During the first summer he employed several hands, 
planted corn, fenced some of his land and in the fall returned 
to Schenectady to spend the winter, leaving a hired man, 


named Truax, and two colored persons named Morter and his 
wife Mary, to take care bf his property. Not long after Vroo- 
man's departure, Truax was murdered in his room. Morter 
and Mary were tried and convicted of the crime, though Mary 
persisted in declaring her innocence. They were burned alive 

■ at Albany, after which nothing more was known for several 
years. A man named Moore, who lived at dorf at the 
time of the murder, afterwauds went to Pennsylvania, and on 
his dying bed confessed that he and Morter were the mur- 

. derers,* Mary being entirely ignorant of the whole affair. The 
second season after bhe murder, Peter Vrooman returned and 
established a permanent residpnce. Several other Dutch 
families settled there about the same time. ■ • 

Simeon Laraway erected the first grist mill in the County. 
Bolting cloths were first introduced about 1760 by Henry 
Weaver. The settlers procured their shoes at Albany or East 
Camp until near the time of the Eevolution, and one pair was 
the yearly allowance for each member of the family. Travel- 
ing cobblers went from house to house repairing such as needed. 
The first cider made in the County was by Lawrence School- 
craft. It was made by pounding the apples in a mortar, similar 
to those used for corn, the pumice was then placed in a 
large Indian basket, previously suspended to a tree, and weights 
placed in the basket, the' juice being caught by a spout made 
of two planks fastened together at the edges. The first cider 
press ever used in the County was made by a man named 
Brown, who removed from West Camp. He was a wheelwright 
and the first one of the trade to prosecute the business in the 
County. John Mattice Young taught the first German school 
ever taught in America, at the Camps, about 1740. Schools 
were taught in Schoharie shortly after ; a man named Spease 
taught the first, and Keller the second. English instruction 
was introduced about 1760, and in some instaace^ the English, 
German and Dutch languages were all taught by the same 
teacher. The implements of husbandry were of the riidest 
kind, tlieir rakes being made with teeth on both sides, and 
their hay forks were crotched sticks. Their wagons were with- 
out tires until 1760. 

Ia 1763 slaves were introduced into the County from New 
England, females being worth about $150 each, and males a lit- 
tle more. A duty was imposed upon slaves imported from 
'another Colony. Under the Colonial Government, persons were 
not obliged to fence their lands along the " Kin^ Highway," 
as public roads were called, but where the line fenbe between 
two neighbors crossed them, gates were erected. As this was a 

. great annoyance to travders, the law was afterwards changed. 


requiring a permit, signed by several of his Majesty's Justices of 
the Peace, before such obstructions could -be placed across the 
road. These gates were continued to some extent until after the 
Revolutionary War. Among the peculiarities of the early set- 
tlers vre select the following description from Simm's History : 

" Few dishes were formerly seen upon the tables of the Scho- 
harie people. It was no uncommon sight to see a family of 
eight or ten persons seated at an old fashioned round tabl^^^ 
■which was turned up in every dwelling when not in use — each 
with a, spoon eating from a single dish of supawn. Every mem- 
ber had a cavity in the pudding filled with milk, from which he 
or she was allowed freely to scoop. On eating through into 
each other's divisions, a quickened motion of the spoon ensued, 
if trouble did not. If bowls were not then found indispensable 
in a large family, for eating a supper of supawn and milk, 
neither were plates in eating a hearty dinner. Each member of 
the family; — seated at the round table, the quality and neatness 
of which no cloth concealed — was given a large slice of bread 
upon which they ate their meat and potatoes ; after which the 
time serving plate was broken up, thrust into a dish to receive a 
coat of dope (gravy) an(J soon devoured. Bread was then sliced 
by one of the heads of the family, and dealt out around the 
table as a whist player would deal his cards. Eice and milk 
was like supawn, also eaten from one dish, after receiving the 
liberal scrapings of a cake of maple sugar. Happy days were 
those when the good hotise-wife had few howls or plates to 
wash, and little envy about the quality or number of those pos- 
sessed by her neighbors." 

Pleasure carriages were unknown, and a single horse often 
carried upon his back a man and woman at the same time. 

The Germans and Dutch of the County remained distinct 
for a long time, very few intermarriages occuring between them. 
The Dutch were generally wealthier than the more hardy and 
laborious Germans, and preferred to contract marriages with 
their own class in the older Dutch settlements. They often 
kept slaves, while the Germans seldom had further assistance 
than such as their own households afforded. Gradually the 
barrier became obliterated and hereditary distinctions in socie- 
ty have disappeared. 

When the stormy period of the Eevolution commenced, a few 
of the people espoused the cause of the British, but the ma.- 
jority were ardent patriots. In many instances members of the 
same family were arrayed against each other, and the struggle 
assumed all the horrors of a civil war, aggravated by Indian 
barbarities. A council of safety was chosen in 1774, of which 
Johannes Ball was chairman until the close of the war. It 


consisted of six members, but we have no means of determin- 
ing who were the first, though the following persons 
are believed to have been members at some time during the 
war : Joseph Borst, Joseph Becker, Peter Becker, Col. Peter 
Vrooman, Lieut. Odl. Peter Zielie, Peter Swart, William Zim- 
mer, William Dietz, Samuel 'Yrooman, Nicholas Sternberg, 
Adam Vrooman, George Warner and Jacob Zimmer. Ool. 
Vrooman did most of the writing for the board. At an early 
period of the difficulties, an effort was made by the settlers to 
induce the Indians to remain neutral. A mee^ting was held for 
that purpose, at the old council ground in Middleburgh. It is 
said that Brant and several other Mohawk chiefs were present, 
and a Mrs. Richtmyer acted as interpreter. The Indians agreed 
to remain neutral or join the Americans, but they were two 
fond of war to remain inactive, and yielded to the induce- 
ments offered by the agents of the British Government. Mr. 
Ball, the chairman of the oomniitee, had two sons, Peter and 
Mattice, who engaged with their father in their country's cause, 
while two other sons espoused the cause of the British. A 
regiment of militia was organized for the ." Schoharie and 
Duanesbnrgh districts,'.' as the 15th Regiment of N. Y. Militia, 
and commissions were issued to its officers, Oct. 20, 1775. It 
consisted of only three companies. A small company was af- 
terwards organized at Cobles'kill under Capt. Christian Brown 
and Lieut. Jacob Borst. At a meeting of the New York State 
Committee of Safety, at Fishkill, Oct. J, 1776, a resolution was 
passed appointing persons in each County " to purchase at the 
cheapest rate in their several counties, all the coarse woolen 
cloth, Hnsey woolsey, blankets, woolen hqSe, mittens, coarse 
linen, felt hats, and shoes fitting for soldiers, and that they 
have the linen made into shirts.' 

Among the relics of Eevolutionary times is the following 
paper : 

" Schoharie, July 7th, 1777, in Committee Chamber first Resolved that 
all the persons between the ages of sixteen and flfty years, from the dwel- 
ling house of (Jhristiaa Shaftier and to north-ward in Schoharie, are to

either of the two churches in Pnuntain Town and Fox's Town, on Suiiday 
or any other day when kept ; and if any of them shall neglect in bringing 
their arms and accoutrements to either of the churches, shall forfeit and 
pay the sum of (Aree iihWing», New York Currency, into the hands of Jo- 
hannes Ball, for the use of paying the cost for the districl* of Schoharie; or

In 1777 a company of volunteers under Capt. Hager pro- 
ceeded to Loonenburg, now Athens, to arrest Col. James Huet- 
son, who was enlisting Tories. After a search of thirteen days; 
during a part of which time they made a levy upon his poultry 
yard, they arrested him and about twenty others, whom thgy 
delivered to the military department at Albany. Col. Huetson 
was afterwards hanged. In August of this year a company of 
Tories under Capt. McDonald were defeated by Col. John Har- 
per. Capt. George Mann, one of the Tories, secreted himself 
in the vicinity until December, when he surrendered himself 
to the military authority and was sent to Albany for trial. 
Owing to the influence' of his Whig neighbors, his trial was 
put off until the close of the war, when he was set at liberty , 
and returned to his family and the possession of his property, 
which was not confiscated. Some persons in the Schoharie 
settlements accepted of kingly protection from McDonald, 
when the prospects of the Colonies were the most gloomy, but 


after his defeat and hasty flight, they managed to return home 
and became the supporters of the federal compact. The fol- 
lowing letter was written by Ool. Harper to the Committee of 
Safety : 

" Schoharie, August 28, 1777. 

" Gentlemen— Since we put CaptMcDonald and his army to flight, I pro- 
ceeded with some volunteers to Harpersfleld where we met many that had 
been forced by McDonald, and some of them much abused. Many others 
were in the woods who were volunteers, and as we could not get hands on 
these that were active in tiie matter, I gave orders to all to make their ap- 
pearance when called on, at Schoharie, in order to give satisfaction to the 
authority for what they have done ; and if tiiey do not, that they are to be 
proclaimed traitors to the United States cf America; which they readily, 
agreed to, and farther declare that they will use their best endeavors to 
bring in those that have been the cause of the present disturbance. I 
would, therefore, beg the honorable Council of Safety, that they would ap- 
point proper persons to try these people, as there wUl, be many that can 
witness to the proceedings of our enemy, and are not in ability to go 

" From your most obedient, humble servant, 
John Hakper, Colo. 

" P. S. The people here are so confused that they do not fcnow how to 
proceed. I therefore would beg the favor of your honorable body to ap- 
point such men as are strangers m these parts. 

" To the honorable, ithe council of safety, at Kingston," 

In the fall of the same year, the following advertisement was 
published : 

" Adwrtis&nent. — This is to give notice to all persons, that the Commit- 
tee of Schoharie have Besohed that nobody shall sell anything to disaffect- 
ed persons, and especially to such persons as buy and send it to the Scotch 
settlements [on the Charlotte and Susquehanna rivers;] and if any person 
does it, we shall seize it. ^

" Schoharie, Nov. 24th, 1777." 

A fort was erected near Middleburgh in the fall of 1777, by 
citizens and soldiers, the former drawing the timber and the 
latter assisting in putting it in its proper place. It was known 
during the Eevolution as the Middle Fort. It consisted of an 
inclosure by pickets of about three quarters of an acre of 
ground, with block-houses in the north-east and south-west 
corners, where cannon were mounted. The principal entrance 
was on the south side, and on each side of the gate were bar- 
racks for the soldiers. The pickets were about a foot in diame- 
ter and ten feet high, with loop holes ffom which to fire on in- 
vaders. Along the east and west sides were huts in which the 
citizens deposited their most valuable eflects and tookrefuge in 
times of danger. 

The Upper Fort was about five miles further up and on the 
opposite side of the river. It was commenced the same fall as 


the Middle Fort, and completed the next summer. It consist- 
ed of an inclosure like the preceeding, picketed on one side, 
and on the others were breastworks, eight or ten feet high, com- 
posed of earth and timber, and wide enough on the top for a 
wagon to be drawn. A ditch surrounded the fort thus con- 
structed. Military barracks and huts for citizens were within 
the inclosure, as well as block-houses and sentry-boxes. 

The Lower Fort was erected about tl^e same time and was 
situated about a mile north of the Court House. The old 
stone church, still standing in the cemetery, was inclosed with 
about half an acre of ground, by strong pickets. Block houses 
were erected in the north-east and south-west corners, mount- 
ing small cannon. Along the west side of the inclosure were 
huts of rough boards for the -protection of the families living in 
the vicinity, and "here they deposited their most valuable effects 
and fled for protection in timeof danger. 

The Middle Fort was the headquarters during the war, and 
usually the residence of the principal commandant of all three. 

A battle was fought at Cobleskill, on the first of June 1778, 
between- the Americans under Capt. Patrick, and the Tories 
and Indians, under Brant. The enemy is said to have number- 
ed 350, While the Americans were less than fifty, twenty- 
two of whom were killedy including Gapt. Patrick. All of the 
houses in the settlement except one, were plundered and burnt 
after the engagement, ten in all, with about the same number 
of barns and outbuildings. 

• In July, Lieut.-Ool. Wm. Butler, with three companies of 
riflemen from Morgan's Corps, and the 4th Pennsylvania Regi- 
ment, was, placed m command of the Middle Fort. Among 
these were some of the most distinguished marksmen of the 
war, including Lieut. Thomas Boyd, Timpthy Murphy, David 
Elerson, William Leek, Wm. Lloyd, Sergt. John Wilber, Joseph 
Evans, Philip Hpever, Elijah Efendricks, John Garsaway and 
Derrick Haggidorn. Early in October 1777, Col. Butler pro- 
ceeded with troops under iis command to Unadilla and Oqua- 
go, Indian towns on the Susquehanna, which he destroyed, with 
large quantities of prpvisions. . The troops suffered greatly in 
this expedition, being obliged to carry their provisions on their 
backs, and frequently to ford creeks and rivers, and at night 
lie down without covering or the means of keeping their arms 
dry. The expedition was absent sixteen days. A regiment of 
New York SDate troops, under Col. Dubois, went into winter 
quarters at Schoharie in the fall of 1778. Adjutant Dodge, 
Major Eosencrans, Capt. Stewart and Ensign Johnson were 
quartered in the kitchen of the chairman of the Committee of 


On the 9tlj of August, 1778, a p^rty of ^eventy-three In- 
dians and five Tories, commanded by Brant, invaded Vroo- 
mansland, near the Upper Fort, killing five and taking thirty 
prisoners. They burnt nine dwellings and the barns and bar- 
racks stored with grain, ai^d took away ninety good horses. 

In the latter part of September 1780, Sir John Johnson left 
Niagara with a force of five hundred British and Tories, and 
proceeded to the Susqmehanna, wh'ere he was joined by Brant 
with several hundred Indians, for the purpose of invading the 
valleys of the Schoharie and Mohawk. They proceeded up 
Charlotte Eiver, thence to Panther Creek, and down that stream 
near its mouth, where they encamped on the evening of October 
16th. It was the intention of Jonnson to resume his march so 
early in the morning as to pass the Upper Fort unobserved and 
make an attack on the Middle Fort, surprise and capture it, 
which would cause the surrender of the other two which were 
more f(?ebly garrisoned. The troops were not set in motion as 
early as intended, and while crossing the river near the Upper 
Fort, they were discovered and the alarm gun fired. The Fort 
■yas in command of Capt. Jacob Hager, with about one hun- 
dred men. He sent a party to the river, who captured an In- 
dian who lagged behind big fellows. The Middle Fort was un- 
der the command of Major Woolsey, a Continental officer, who 
proved himself utterly unworthy of the trust committed to him. 
The Fort was garrisoned by about 350 troops, among whom 
were Col. Vrooman, Lieut. Col. Zielie, and Major Thomas Ecker 
of the same regiment. The firing of the alarm guns was the 
signal for the enemy to apply the incendiary torch. Most of 
the inhabitants were at the forts where they usually lodged. A 
party of volunte'ers were sent out and had a slight skirmish 
with the advance of the enemy near Middleburgh. The wind 
was blowing so that these men left their hats at the Fort and 
tied handkerchiefs over their heads. Johnson had a small mor- 
tar and a six-pounder brass cannon, with which he commenced 
the bombardment of the Fort, the small arms at the same time 
keeping up a continuous fire. The firing continued for some 
time, when it suddenly ceased and a white flag was seen to leave 
the ranks of the enemy and advance towards the Fort. Major 
Woolsey gave orders that the flag should be received, but Tim- 
othy Murphy and David Elerson, for whose scalps an extra price 
bad been offered, determined that before the flag should enter 
the Fort one or the other of them would shoot Wfiolsey. As 
the flag drew near, Murphy fired upon it, with no intention of 
killing its beaf er, but to warn him not to approach nearer. The 
flag was immediately returned. Woolsey was absent when the 
flag was fired upon, but immediately returned with pistol in 


hand and inquired who dared to disobey his orders. Murphy 
replied that he fired on the flag. - Major Woolsey then threat- 
ened him with instant death if he repeated the act. Murphy 
declared that sooner than see the flag enter the Fort, he 
would send a bullet through the heart of the Major. 
Murphy was sustained by the other officers of the Fort, 
who were desirous of seeing it defended at all hazards-. 
The Major walked a'n'ay and as the flag appeared, Murphy 
again flred upon it. A third time an effort was made to get a 
flag of truce into the Fort, and a third time was the bearer 
warned by a shot from Mnrph/s rifle, to return. Major Wool- 
sey gave up the command to Col. Vrooman and sought safety 
among the women and children. The firing was continued un- 
der the command of Col. Vrooman, the officers taking guns 
and fighting with the soldiers. The ^rrison was too weak to 
allow a successful sortie against the enemy, but several parties 
were sent out during the day to harass the enemy, and, if 
possible, save a large barn of John Becker, which stood almostHn 
the direction of Johnson's position, and was surrounded with 
numerous stacks of hay and grain. The enemy remained*, 
about the Forfc until all the property in the vicinity was de- 
stroyed, and about 3 o'clock in the afterlloon moved down the 
valley. Less than half a dozen of the garrison were injured 
during the siege. The loss of the besiegers is not known, 
though it must have been much greater than that of the beseig- 
ed. Major Becker was in command of the Lower Fort with 
about 150 men. Ample time was given to make everything in 
the Lower Fort ready for defense. Several barrels of water 
were provided to extinguish the fire, should the church in 
which were the women and children be set on fire. In the 
tower, under the command of Ensign Jacob Lawyer, Jr., fifteen 
or twenty good marksmen were stationed, and a number of 
women stood at the pickets with pitchforks, spears &c., ready 
to repel an attack. Several shots from the enemy were lodged 
in the tower of the church. On the 18th a small force was col- 
lected to pursue the enemy and doubtless tended to restrict the 
field of their operations somewhat. It is said that 134 build- 
ings were burned in Schoharie County during the war, a large 
part of which were during this expedition. The citizens were 
living in good frame houses and had large barns well filled with 
grain. Schoharie had not only supplied her own citizens and 
soldiers, but had furnished large quantities of grain for the 
troops at other stations. Such was the destruction, that the 
most rigid ecomony would scarcely enable them to subsist on 
what remained, until the next year's harvest. Added to the 
great loss of gram, dwellings, stock &c., was the great deprecia- 


tion of the paper money of the country, large amounts of whicli 
were in the possession of some of the farmers, having been tak- 
en in exchange for the products of their farms. Fifty or sixty 
dollars in currency, in 1780, "woiild command no more than 
one dollar in specie. An officer once paid seventy dollars for a 
single mug of J{ip. 

In 1781 block houses were erected at Kneiskern's and Hart- 
man's dorf, and at Cobleskill. The last was erected by Capt. 
Dubois, of Oatskill, and called Port Dubois. It inclosed about 
half ati acre of land, with pickets and a ditch, filled with water 
from a brook. July 10th an engagement took place about two 
miles east of Sharon Springs^ between' a party of Tories and 
Indians under Doxtader and Col. Willett. Though the force of 
the enemy was greatly superior to that of Willett, they were 
defeated, and a Targe amount of plunder taken the day before at 
Currytown, was recovered. Some of the prisoners taken by the 
enemy on the previous day, were killed, to prevent their falling 
into the hands of their friends. The loss of the Americans 
was five killed and eight wounded. The loss of the enemy was 
supposed to be about fifty. Most of the cattle driven away 
from Currytown were abandoned by their captors and found 
their way back to their former pastures. Several persons in 
Middleburgh were surprised and taken prisoners while in the 
harvest field. 

Christian Myndert, who resided in Sharon, removed in the 
summer of 1781 to Fort Dubois, to escape the savages, leaving 
several.hogs in the field and a quantity of peas growing on the 
ground, in the latter part of October, Myndert, accompa|nied' 
by Lieut., Jacob Borst, of Cobleskill, Wm. Kneiskem and Jacob 
Kerker, proceeded to his former dwelling to secure his peas, 
shut up his hogs and secure some other property. While 
endeavoring to secure the hogs, six Indians, commanded by 
Walradt, a Tory, from the Mohawk Valley, secreted themselves 
in Mynderf 8 barn. The day was cold and stormy, and after 
securing the property, Lieut.. Borst and his companions re- 
paired to the house to. warm tiiemselves, setting their guns in 
one corner while they gathered around the fire. While thus 
engaged, the Indians suddenly burst in upon them and made 
them prisoners before they had time to seize their guns. The 
prisoners were bound and started for Canada. They encamped 
the first night at New Dorlach, but such was the vigilance of 
the enemy that there was no chance of escape. They suffered 
greatly on their march, being compelled to run the gauntlet at 
the Indian settlements, at which they suffered severely. Lieiit. 
Borst died soon after arriving at Niagara. Kneiskern, who 
was imprisoned on an island in the St. Lawrence, succeeded one 


night in making his escape with several other prisoners. They 
dug ont beneath the pickets which inclosed their prison, and 
made a raft on which to float down the river. One of the 
prisoners, fearing the raft would not sustain all of the party, 
swam several miles to where they effected a landing on the 
American shore. After suffering incredible hardships in the 
forest, living on birch bark, roots (fee, they arrived safe 'among 
their friends, where their wants were supplied until they reach- 
ed their homes. 

About the 1st of Novemberj 1781, a party of Tories and In- 
dians under Brant and Capt. Adam Crysler, a former resident 
of the vicinity, entered Vroomansland near the Upper Fort. Mr. 
Isaac Vrooman was murdered and scalped near the house of his 
son, who escaped to the Fort and gave the alarm- A small party 
was dispatched in pursuit, and at " Bouck's Island " had a slight 
skirmish in which Derick Haggidorn was mortally wounded. 
The eneiny were concealed, and their 'number was unknown; 
the party returned to the Fort. Col. Vrooman then dispatched 
Capt. Hager, with fifteen or twenty Schoharie rangers and 
a company of troops under Capt. Hale^ the command being 
given to Hager. With two or three days rations they moved 
up the river, and the next morning, near Lake Utsyantha, they 
encountered the enemy, numbering about sixty or seventy In- 
dians and Tories. At the first fire, Hale and his men, with a 
single exception, retreated, leaving Hager with less than twenty 
men to resist a force three times that of his own. Capt. Hager 
and Murphy ran to intercept Hale, and, placing themselves in 
front, threatened to run him through if he did not halt. They 
retraced their steps, but the enemy retreated, and though pur- 
sued for some distance^ they were unable to bring theni , again 
into action. 

July 29th, ^82, Adam Crysler, his brother William and 
another Tory named Peter Erkert, with twenty-two Indians, 
appeared in the valley of Pox's Creek, murdered several and 
laid siege to the house of Major Becker," which was defended by 
the -in mates with such spirit that after several hours siege they 
^ departed. As soon as information of the attack was conveyed 
to the Fort, Capt, Brown sent out a party which arrived soon 
after Crysler had left. One of the enemy killed was found to be 
Erkert, a cooper who had made flour barrels for Major Becker 
bcrfore the war. He was not dead when found, and on being re- 
cognized by the Major, was iiccused of ingratitude. The Tory 
appeared penitent and said he did not care which succeeded, 
King or Congress. Few counties suffered more from hostile ; 
incursions during the Eevolutiondry war than Schoharie. 


After the war many of the Tories returned to Schoharie, 
some of whom boasted of their evil deeds. The climate, how- 
ever, did not agree with them and they soon disappeared. Some 
of the Schoharie Indians ^Iso returned, but were looked upon 
with as much distrust as the Tories. 

In 1845 and 1846 this County partook somewhat of the anti- 
rent excitement, in common with surrounding counties, though 
no actual violence occurred within its limits. 

The State Gazetteer, published in 1860, says: "Within the 
last ten years, a mania for building large seminaries, far beyond 
the wants of the jeople, has spread through the County. The 
speculation has proved a tuinous one, and the entire amount of 
capital invested in the enterprises has been sunk, (^f nine acad- 
emies built in this County, three have been burned, three are 
' to let ' and three are still open." 

The first newspaper published in the Gounty was

annual Fairs are generally successful and the Society ia in a 
flourishing conidit^n. 

We have not as full statistics of the ^art taken by this County 
in the suppression of the great Rebellion, as is desirable. Im- 
mediately after the first proclamation of the President, Captain 
Hiram A. Blodget, of Co. D, Fortieth Regiment,. N. Y. M., 
procured enlistment papers from the Adjutant General, and en- 
listed 28 men belonging to his company, but as the number was 
not sufficient to form a company, six of thfe men went to Al- 
bany and enlisted, and the remainder enlisted in the Seventy- 
Sixth Regiment, one company of which was chiefly raised in 
Schoharie County. One company of the Third N". i. Cavalry 
was raised in this and Otsego tlounties through the 'efforts of S. 
H. Mix, who became Lieut. Col. of the Regiment. Many of the 
citizens enlisted in the various regiments raised in this part of 
the State, but we have no means of determining the number. 



3LENMMIM, named from the Blenhejm Patent, apart 
of which lies in the north part of the town, was formed ftom 
Schoharie, March 17, 1797., Jefferson was taken of in 1803, and 
a part of Grilboa in 18^8. It is an interior town, lying south- 
west of the center of the County. The surface is a hilly up- 
land, broken by the deep ravines of the streams. Schohatt'e 
Creek flows north through the east part, receiving Westkill 
and several smaller streams from the west. These streams of- 
ten rise very rapidbr, sometimes doing great damage. They are 
bordered by steep hills, rising to a hight of 300 to 500 feet. A 
wide fiat extends along the Scoharie, equal in fertility to any 
land in the County. The soil is chiefly a clayey loam. Wheat 
is raised to some extent, and hops and broom corb are quite ex- 
tensively raised. 

North Blenheim, (p. v.), known also as Patchin Hollow, is 
situated on the west bank of Schoharie Creek, at the 
mouth of the Westkill. It is divided into two parts by a steep 
hill that approaches so near the creek as to leave little room for 
more than a road. It contains two churches, viz., Methodist 
and Eeformed ; two school houses, two hotels, two stores, two 
wagon shops, two blacksmith shops,^a harness shop, a shoema- 
ker shop, a tailor shop, a paint shop, a grist mill, two saw mills 
and about fifty dwellings. There is a fine water power that is 
not all improved. It is on the line of the Middleburgh and 
Gilboa, stage. A steam sash and blind factory is near. 

\ Eminence, (p. v.) on the west border, partly in Summit and 
Jefferson, contains two churches, Methodist and Eeformed; 
a hotel, two stores, a wagon shop, a blacksmith shop, a shoe shop, 
a milliner and dressmaker shop, and about twenty dwellings. 
Minekill Falls is a post oflice. 

__^ Blenheim Sill, Cole Hollow and Burnt Hill are local names of 


On the west side of Schoharie Creek, opposite the residence of 
Daniel Hager, was formerly an Indian burying ground. Two 
Indian setflements were formerly in this town. 

The first settlements were made by Dutch and Palatinates, 
\previous to 1761, but many of them were driven out during the 
Kevolution. Among the early settlers were Gen. Freegift Pat- 
chin, Lawrence Mattice, Henry Eflfner, Henry and Jacob Hager, 
Lamberj; Sternberg, Wm. Freeck, Isaac Smith, Banks More- 
house and George Martin. Most of the settlers who came in 
after the war, were from New England. Hendrick Mattice, 
who erected the first mill on the Westkill, became a loyalist 
and went to Canada. 

Many of the early settlers were soldiers of the Eevolution. 
Daniel Hager and Philip Bartholomew were captains in the war 
of 1813. The former is still living, though stjU feeling the 
eflfects of wounds received at Sacketts Harbor and at Plattsburg. 
He is a grandson of Jacob Hager, who was a captain during the 
Revolution, and was with the army that captured Bnrgoyne. 
In 1777, when McDonald and his party invaded this County, 
he reached the river above Breakabeen on Sunday, August 10, 
and marched up and down the road stationing guards. Capt. 
Jacob H'ager's , father, then about- seventy years of age, was 
anxious to give notice to the patriots below at the stone house, 
afterwards surrounded by pickets and known as the Upper Fort, 
but most of his neighbors had given in their adherence to the 
Boyal authorities and he started to do the errand himself, a 
distaqce of nine miles. Leaving'home about sundown, he had 
proceeded but a short distance when he was met by an emis- 
sary of royalty, who asked where he was going, his business &c. 
Pretending to have some business with a blacksmith a short 
distance below, he was told that the man he wished to see was 
in a house near by. Having made arrangements for his black- 
smithing, he was allowed to return home. Having proceeded 
on his way until out of sight of tlffe Tory sentinel, he turned 
from the road, went down the bank of the river, which he ford- 
ed, and .at length reached the stone house, making known to the 
patriots the near approach of the enemy. He met his son, 
Capt. Hager, who had just returned from the Northern Army. 
Capt. H. and Henry Becker were immediately sent to Albany 
for assistance. 

In the afternoon of the same day, Col. John Harper arrived 
to consult with 6ol. Vrooman and others as to the best course 
to be pursued in the emergency. As the Tories were expected 
to pass down through the valley, it was necessary to be as ex- 
peditious as possible in obtaining aid, and Col. Harper volun- 
teered to go to Albany on horseback, and procee'ded as far as 


the taTern of John I. Lawyer, near Schoharie Court House, 
and put up, as it was not deemed safe to travel in the,night. 
^he same night there was quite a gathering of Indians and 
Tories at the "Brick House," about a mile distant. After 
Harper had retired, a jiarty from the Brick House called and 
wished to see Col. H. and haye him accompany them to their 
place of rendezvous. Lawyer tried in vain to dissuade them 
from disturbing his guest. Harper, hearing the disturbance, 
stepped to the door and with pistols in hand threatened to 
shoot the first man who should step over the threshold. 
Thinking that discretion was the better part of valor, they 
retired, and Harper locked his door and was not further dis- 
turbed. The next morning he started on his journey, armed 
with sword and pistols, and was followed by two Indians armed 
with knives and tomahawks. Passing over a knoll or turn in 
the road which hid him from their view, he dismounted, drew 
his sword from the scabbard and, holding a pistol in each hand, 
awaited the approach of the savages. Biding rapidly, they 
were brought to a sudden halt within pistol shot of Harper, 
who exclaimed, " Slop you villains, face about and he off, this 
instant, or these bullets shall whistle through your hearts." They 
turned about and followed at a respectful distance' after thia.' 
Col. Harper proceeded to Albany and returned with a small 
company of cavalry, giving great joy to the patriots along the 
valley. After a slight skirmish, in which Lieut. David Wirt 
was killed, the enemy retreated up the valley and departed for 
Niagara. It is said that more than twenty citizens from Vroo- 
mans Land and vicinity went with them. 

On the 2d of April 1780, a scout of fourteen men, command- 
ed by Lieut. Alexander Harper, was sent from the Schoharie 
Forts, by Col. Vrooman, to the vicinity of Harpersfield, to keep 
an eye on the conduct of certain suspected persons, and if pos- 
sible make a quantity of maple sugar. Here they were sur- 
prised by a party of Indiats and Tories under Capt. Brant, and 
hurried off to Canada. The surprise was so complete that the 
Americans did not fire a gun. The ostensible object of this 
expedition was to invade the Schoharie settlements, but being 
assured by Lieut. Hanjerj that three hundred continental troops 
had recently arrived there. Brant wry reluctantly gave up the 
expedition, and the settlements were undisturbed until October 
of the- same year. This statement was received with some 
doubt, but he persisted in his assertion though it was utterly 
false. This is regarded as one of those falsehoods which are 
allowable m times of war. Freegift Patchin was one of the cap- 
tured party. The snow was very deep and the prisoners found 
it difficult to keep np with the Indians, who wore snow shoes. 


Brant was taken ill with fever and ague and compelled to lie by 
every other day, rendering the journey more endurable to the 
captors. After journeying about two weeks and arriving in a 
warmer latitude, a rattlesnake was found, and a soup made, a 
free jise of which effected a cure of Captain Brant. About 
fifteen miles from the place of capture, they obtained three 
bushels of corn, which was afterwards equally divided among 
the whole party. ^ The division was made by counting the ker- 

While in the vicinity of Tioga Point, the prisoners came near 
being sacrificed to gratify a savage disposition for revenge, even 
upon innocent parties. It appears that on their way down the 
Chemung, Brant detached ten of his warriors to Minisink, for 
plunder and prisoners. The object of the expedition was ac- 
complished and they were returning with their prisoners, when 
one night the latter fell upon their captors, killing nine and 
severely wounding the . tenth, who alone escaped to tell the 
news. The wounded Indian interfered, telling the excited 
multitude that the prisoners, just arrived, had nothing to do 
with the affair anf that it would be unjust to wreak their 
vengeance on innocent men. The party suffered greatly irom 
hunger. Near the present site of Elmira, they found the car- 
cass of a horse frozen in the snow, and despoiling the wolves 
of their meat, the party feasted i^on it. Arriving near Niag- 
ara, they passed the gauntlet, no one except Patchin being 
seriously injured. The prisoners, except Harper, were finally 
lodged in prison at Ohamblee, where they remained in irons 
for two years, suffering for the necessaries of life. Preegift 
Patchin became go reduced as to be unable to rise from the 
floor without assistance. The physician in charge totally neg- 
lected his duties. At length he was succeeded by a man with 
a humane heart, who on his first visit ordered the shackles re- 
moved from the prisoners, and their condition rendered more 
tolerable. At the close of the war the prisoners were released 
and arrived in Schoharie about three years after their capture. 

General Patchin' settled in this town in 1798, built a mill 
and gave his name to the village. The first inn was kept by 
H. Bffner, and the first store by Tobias Cuyler, in 1803. The 
first tannery was built in 1825 by Jones & L9,throp. Jacob 
Sutherland, afterwards a Judge of the Supreme Court of this 
State, was formerly a resident of this toi^n. Walter Butler 
formerly owned a large tract, including the flats in this town, 
and the hill portion was owned by John Lansing, Jr. It is 
said that Lansing gave a shilling ah acre for his land, a large 
portion of which was leased to the occupants until the anti- 
rent excitement. Mr. Daniel Hager assisted in surveying this 


patent about 1809. The first lease given by Judge Lansing, was 
Stephe^ Mayhem, an Irishman. , After the anti-rent excite- 
ment broke out, Mayhem purchased his land for two dollars an 
acre. ■ > . 

The citizens of this town partook of the excitement which 
prevailed in other localities, and meetings were held at which 
the anti-rent advocates appeared in the dress of Indians, and 
personal violence was threatened. Sheriffs Brown and Bouck 
were at one time' stopping at a hotel in North Blenheim, and 
while quietly seated in conversation, the room was suddenly 
filled with men disguised as Indians. The Sheriffs were over- 
powered and taken to Baldwin's Hights with the intention of 
giving them a coat of tar and feathers, but better counsels pre-, 
vailed and the plan was abandoned. If the anti-renters were 
lawless, the legal authorities were sometimes scarcely less so, 
the posse of the Sheriff sometimes taking unwarrantable 
liberties in searching premises and in the pretended exercise of 
their duty. 

At the close of tlje Revolution, some of the Tories from this 
town returned, to the great disgust of patriotic citizens. 
Among these was one named Beacraft, who .boasted of his 
deeds of barbarity until they could no longer be endured. 
He jvas taken by about a dozen whigs, stripped, bound and 
punished with fifty lashes with*hickory withes, the executioner 
telling him at every ten strokes, for what crime they were in- 
flicted. He was then released and disappeared forever from 
this town. 

The Methodist Church of North Blenheim was organized 
about 1801 by Eevs. Heman and Nathan Bangs, with about 20 
members. About the year 1828 a house of worship was erected ; 
it will seat 500 and is valued at $2,500. The parsonage is 
valued at $1,000. Kev. Wm. W. Taylor is the present pastor. 

The Methodist Church of Blenheim Hill, erected a house of 
worship in 1854, at an expense of $1,500, and capable of seat-

The Reformed Church of North Blenheim was organized in 
1852, by Rev. Jacob Van Woert, the first pastor, with 31 mem- 
bers. Their house of worship was erected in 1853 and cost 
originally $2,100. The present value of church and lot is 


$3,000, and that of the parsonage $1,700 ; their house of wor- 
ship will seat 300 ; their membership is 34.

BMOOME, named in honor of Lieut. Governor John 
Broome, was formed March 17, 1797, as Bristol. Its name was 
changed April 6, 1808. A part of Conesville was taken off in 
1836, a part of Gilboa in 1848, and parts of Middleburgh wel-e 
annexed Feb. 9, and October 5, 1849. It lies upon the east bor- 
der of the County, south of the center. The surface is a hilly 
upland, broken by the deep ravines of the streams. The high- 
est summits are from 350 to 500 feet above the valleys. Oats- 
kill Oreek takes its rise in the north part, and several branches 
of the Schoharie Creek drain the north and west portions. The 
soil is a gravelly and clayey loam. 

Livingstonvillf, (p. v.) in the east part, south of the teenter, 
contains two churches, a store, a hotel, a grocery, two black- 
smith shops, a wagon shop, a shoe shop and about twenty dwel- 

Franklinton, (p. v.) in the east part, contains a church, a store, 
a sash and blind shop, a wagon shop, two blacksmith shops and 
about a dozen dwellings. 

Smithton is a hamlet on^he south border. 

The first settlements were made before the Revolution. 
Among the early settlers, some of whom came in after the close 
of the Revolution, were Derick Van Dyck, John Robbins, a half- 
breed namfid Guillem, Allen Leet, Joshua and Asa Bushnell, 
George and Hezekiah Watson, Ebenezer Wickham, George Burt- 
wick, Timothy Kelsey, John Gillet and Ezra Chapman, all of 
whom came in previous to 1796. The first birth in the town, so 
far as known, was that of Francis Kelsey, in April 1794 ; the 
first death was that of Ezra Chapman, August 1794. In 1794, 
Griswold, Garden & Wells began the erection of a saw mill, and 
the next season a grist mill. 

David Elerson, distinguished among the riflemen of the Re- 
volution, settled in this town in 1793. Previous to the Revo- 
lution he was engaged in the Indian wars of Virginia, during 
which he received a bultet through his left shoulder. He was 


in the battle of Monmouth, under Col. Morgan. Col. M. hung 
upon I the rear of the retreating army for some distance. Arriv- 
ing near Middletown, Elerson, Murphy, Wilbur and Tnffts, all 
of whom were afterwards on duty in Schoharie, obtained per- 
mission to leaye the ranks and pursue the enemy to Raritan 
Bay. At length Elerson became separated from his compan- 
ions and found himself in sight of his foes. The army had ef- 
fected a landing on* Staten Island, under the cof er of the fleet 
in the bay, leaving nothing on the Middletown shore but some 
horses, wagons and a phaeton, supposed to belong to Sir Henry 
Clinton. This property was guarded by only two sentinels,one 
of whom stood on the beach near the water. Elerson ap- 
proached unperceived within a few_ yards of them, one ofiwhom 
WS.S a mounted trooper, and leveling his rifle ordered tnem to 
surrender. The soldier on foot was so surprised that he drop- 
ped his gun into the water, wetting the powder. The dragoon 
attempted to swim his horse to the island, but the tide was too 
strong and he was compelled to return. In the mean time 
Elerson ordered the other man to harness a pair of good horses 
to the carriage. By this time the dragoon had returned and, 
drawing a pistol on Elerson, the latter sent a bullet from his 
trusty rifle through the heart of his foe. This called the at- 
tention of the enemy, who immediately directed their artillery 
towards £he point. Elerson reloaded his rifle, and j nst as the sec- 
ond ball struck near him, leaped into the carriage and compelled 
his prisoner to drive him to the American camp. Elerson sold 
his horses and carriage for $187.50, and sent the money to his 
father in Virginia. Elerson died in 1838 or '39. 

David 'Willialns, one of the captors of Major Andre, removed 
to this town in 1805 and settled near Jjivingstonville, on a farm 
previously owned by Gen. Shay, the leader of what has since 
been known in the "history of Massachusetts, as Shay's Eebell- 
ion. John Paulding and Isaac Van Wart were the other two 
who captured Andre. As a reward for their services. Congress 
gave each an annual i)ension of $200, in specie, and a silver med- 
al, inscribed on one side "^Fidelity," and on the other " Vincit 
Amor Patriaa." In addition to this, each of the captors was 
allowed the privilege of locating any confiscated lands in West- 
chester County, to the value of $1,250 or receive the same sum 
in cash. In the fall of 1830, the corporation of the city of New 
York sent an invitation to Mr. WilUams to be present at the 
celebration of the French Eevolution. Mr. Williams and 
three other soldiers of the Eevolution were drawn in a carriage 
at the head of the procession. He visited the public schools 
and other places of interest, and at one of the schools a silver 
cup was presented to him, and at another, a silver headed cane. 


The Mayor also presented to him an elegant horse, harness and 
carriage. He died Augusts, 1831, aged 77. JfteTvas buried 
with military honors at LiTingstonTille, August |4, in the pre- 
sence of a large concourse who had assembled to pay the last 
trib.ute of respect to the distinguished patriot.

CASXilSLE was formed from Cobleskill and Sharon, 
March 31, 1807. It is a central ^town upon the north border of 
the County. The surface consists principally of an immense 
ridge, lying between the valleys -of the Mohawk and Cobleskill, 
the summit of which is 800 to lOOOfeet above the former stream. 
This ridge descends to the north bya series of terraces, formed 
hj the aifTerent gedlogieal strata, and t^e south by gradual 
slopes, following the general dip of the rocks. A conical eleva- 
tion near the south line, early known as Owaeresoiiere, is one of 
the highest points in the County, and may be seen from Hamil' 
ton County, fifty miles distant. The streams are small brooks. 
The soil is chiefly a clay loam. Hops are extensively cultivat- 


ed. Several caves are found in the limestone regions in various 
parts of tHe town. The principal of these are known as Young's 
and Selkirk's Oaves. Hekv Carlisle village is a small cavern, in 
which it is Apposed the. Indians found shejter during the Re- 
volution. Fibrous sulphate of barytes, , fibrous carbonate of 
lime and arragonite, are found near Grovenor's Corners. ■ 

Carlisle (p. Q.) is situated in the north part of the town, on 
the Western Turnpike, an^ contains a church, a hotel, two 
stores, a foundry, a tannei-y, two blacksmith shops, a carriage 
shop, two shoe shops and 28 dwellings. Grove Seminary was 
built in a beautiful grovSi' a little south of the center of the vil- 
lage, in 1853, at a cost of 124,500. It was finally closed and re- 
moved in 1865. Mr. John Van Liew was the first principal, and 
Mr. J. P. Lansing the last one. There is a good public school 
in the village, under the direction of Mr. A. S. Griffin. The 
district propose soon to erect a neW school house, commensu- 
rate with the wants of the school, at a cost of $2,000. 

Argusville, (p. v.) in the north-west part of the town, ai^d

dozen dwellings. It was named in honor of Moses Grovenor 
and two sons, who were the first settlers in this place. 

Carlisle Center, (p. v.) in the south part of the town, two and 
a half miles from Grovenor's Corners, contains a store, a harness 
shop, a shoe shop, a carriage shop, a school house and half a 
dozen dwellings. The post office was established here in 1871. 

Near this place is a cave, the entrance to which is on ^a lot 
owned by Ira Young, whose father, John Young, discovered it, 
by having a horse fall into an opening in the surface above it. 
The cave has been' explored to a distance of about three miles. 
A few years since, while a party were engaged in making explo- 
rations in the cave, Mr. A. B. McFail, while ascending by means 
of a rope, fell and was injured so that he died in about five 
hours, since which no further explorations have taken place. 

Little Tori, on the turnpike in the west part of the town, con- 
tains a church, a district school, a hotel and a half dozen dwel- 


This town embraces portions of New Dorlach, Becker, Liv- 
ingston's, Van Rensselaer's, Machin's and the Stone , Heap 

The ^rst settlement was made in 1760, in the south-west part 
of the townj'by Andrew Loucks, Conradt Engle/Philip Hooker , 
and Peter Young. These families came froib Rhinebeck. 
Among the other early settlers were John 0, McNeill, Wm. 
Caldwell, John Sweetman, Aaron Howard, Tennis Van Camp, 
Mathias Cass and Lodowyck Primer. Judge Brown,' author of 
'History of Schoharie,' was an early settler of this town and the 
first justice of the peace. Benjamin Johnson was the first 
constable. The first grist mill was erected by John Brown, in 
the north-east part of the town, about a mile and a half from 
Grovenor's Corners. It was nick-named " Samp Mortar." The 
first saw mill was erected at what is now Becker's Corners, by 
Thomas Kinyon. The first school house was erected at Gro- 
venor's Corners. There is only one grist mill in the town ; 
this is located near Argusville and is owned by Schermerhorn 
& Dey.

COBLMSKILL, named in honor of Co'bel, who 

built a mill at Gentral Bridge at an early period, was formed 
from Schoharie, March 17, 1797. The line of Sharon was- 
changed March 15, 1799. A part of Carlisle was taken off in 
1807, a part of Summit in 1819, and Richmondville in 1845. 
It is an interior town, lying north of the center of the County. 
The surface is principally a hilly upland, broken by the deep 
valley of Cobleskill, which flows east through the center. The 
highest points on the north and south borders, are from 600 to 
900 feet above the valley. ' The soil upon the hills is a sandy 
loam, and in the valley an alluvium, 

Cohleskill, (p. v.) incorporated April 3, 1868, is in the west 
part, pleasantly situated on the creek of the same name, and 
is k station on the Albany & Susquehanna E. E., forty-five 
miles from Albany. The Sharon & Cherry Valley E. R. con- 
nects this place with Sharon Springs and Cherry Valley in 
Otsego Co. It is well laid out, the streets are nicely shaded 
with trees, and the principal sidewalks well flagged. It already 
contains some fine business blocka, with more in prospect, 
many neat' and comfortable, and some elegant residences. It 
contains three churches, a fine brick school-house, a bank, four 
hotels, a newspaper prin.tiBg ofBce, tiie Empire Agricultural 
Works, a steam planii^ mill, eask and blind manufactory, &c., 
two wagon shops, a grist mill, two saw mills, two marble shops, 
a large number of stores and mechanic shops of various kinds, 
and about 1,800 inhabitants. 

The Empire Agricultural Works of Minard Harder, located 
in this village, were established in 1859 by E. & M. Harder. 
Like most great enterprises its beginnings were small and only 
a small number of machines were sold the first year, but the 
business has constantly increased until they give employment 


to about twenty-five hands and sell about $50,000 worth annually. 
Mr. Minard Haider, one of /the original proprietors, is now the 
sole owner of these works and is mannfiacturing some of the 
best threshing machines. in the country, as well as other im- 
plements. At the great National Implement Trial at Auburn, 
N. Y., in July 1866, a gold, medal was awarded to Messrs. Har- 
der for the best Combined Thresher and Cleaner. The Com- 
mittee, in speaking qt the Endless Chain Horse Powers made 
by Mr. Harder, say, that ",It works more equably, more smooth- 
ly and wifti less waste of power than any machines that we 
have ever met with. * * * The construction of this ma- 
chine is such as to produce a suflBcieht speed for threshing, by 
a very slow and easy movement of the hoijpes," while the me- 
chanical execution of this power is deserving of the highest 
commendation. The best of materials and the best workman- 
ship are combined in all machines coming from Mr. Harder's 
establishment. The Combined Thresher and Cleaner has sev- 
eral new features, rendering it suplerior to any other in use. 
Mr. Harder is about to erect new works commensurate with the 
increasing demand for his machines. 

Lawyersville, (p. v.) named in honor of Lawrence Lawyer, 
one of the first settlers of the town, is situated about two mills 
north-west of Cobleskill, and contains two churches, a school 
house, two saw mills, a blacksmith shop, a shoe shop and about 
twenty dwellings.

The place received its name from Lester Howe, who first ex- 
plored the remarkable Cave whose entrance is at this place. 
The Cave contains several large rooms connected by narrow 
passages, some of whiqli require considerable stooping to pass 


through. A body of water occupies one portion of the Cave 
and must be crossed by a boat Stalactites and other mineral 
formations are found here. The Cave extends for several miles 
and is visited by large numbers every summer. 

CohlesUll Center (Mineral Springs p. o.) is a hamlet, a little 
south-west of the center. 

The first settlement was jnade about f?50, along the flats bor- 
dering' on the creek. Among the early settlers were families 
named Shafer, Bouck, Warner, Lawyer, Frimire, Bsrst, Brown, 
from Schoharie, and George Fester, from Pennsylvania, all of 
whom were of German origin. Capt. James Dana, from Con- 
necticut, and John Redington, were early settlers at Lawyers- 
ville. Capt. Dana -v^s at the battle of Bunker Hill. On locating 
at Lawyersville he erected a good log house in which he resided 
during the remainder of his life. Be received a commission of 
General from Gov. Lewis, on the organization of a brigade of 
infantry, being the first man in the County who held that oflSce. 

The first land grants were made about 1730. During the Re- 
volution most of the inhabitants were ardent supporters of the 
Colonists, and as a consequence were exposed to the incursions 
•f Indians and Tories. At the outbreak of hostilities, there 
were twenty families located on the rich flats of the Cobleskill, 
within a distance of three miles. As they were all Whigs, they 
organized a militia company for their own defense. Christian 
Brown Being Captain, and Jacob Borst, Lieutenant. In June 
1778 a-battle was fought in this town between Tories and In- 
dians under Brant, and provincial troops and militia under Cap- 
tains Patrick and Brown. The Americans were drawn into an 
ambuscade and defeated. Captain Patrick was killed. The 
settlers in the vicinity, hearing- the firing, fled to the forest for 
refuge, or towards the Fort at Schoharie, ten miles distant. 
Three of Patrick's and two of Brown's men took refuge in a 
house from which they fired upon the Indians. The latter 
stopped to dislodge them, thus giving the fleeing ones an oppor- 
tunity to escape. The house was set on fire and three of the 
soldiers were buried in the ruins, the other two were killed. 
The whole nuniber killed in the engagement was twenty-two, 
more than half of the Americans engaged being either killed or 
wounded. The enemy consisted of about 350, under the com- 
mand of Joseph Brant. The loss of the enemy was Supposed to 
equal if it did not exceed that of the Americans. Ten houses were 
burned on this occasion, and about the same number of barns. 
Jonas Belknap, one of the soldiers engaged in this battle, was 
wounded in the hip and carried from the field by Lawrence 
Lawyer. He then crept into a hollow log where he remained 


until the next day, when he hacked out, and Beating himself 
upon a fence near hy, saw two Indisins apj^roaching witii their 
plunder. Unperceived by them he let himself down into a 
bunch of briars. The Indians halted near him and the dogs 
placed their feet upon the fence and growled. Taking a drink 
from a bottle, they then went on their way, to the great relief 
of Belknap. He then found his way to a house which had been 
deserted so hastily that food was left upon the table. Haying 
satisfied the cravings of his appetite, he lay down to rest. In. 
the afternoon he was conveyed to Schoharie Fort and properly 
cared for. 

The day before the battle of Cobleskill, Lieut. Borst, his broth- 
er Joseph and a man named Freemire were on a scout several 
miles up the creek. The latter was some distance ffom his com- 
panions when two Indians sprang suddenly upon them with a 
savage yell, intended to intimidate them., A friendly salutation 
ensued, when Han Yerry, one of the Indians, approached 
Joseph Borst, seized^his gun in a playful manner, threw open 
the pan,* and, with a sudden jerk, spilled the priming, saying, 
" It is good if this be gone." Borst, seeing that the object of 
the Indian was to disarm him, droj^ed his own gun and siezing 
that of the Indian, wrenched the flint from the lock, saying " It 
is good if this is served so." The Indian dropped his gun and 
clinched Borst. While the struggle was going on, the other 
Indian approached the Lieutenant, ordering him to surrender. 
Instead of doing so he instantly shot him. Han Yerry freed 
himself from the grasp of Borst and fled, leaving his gun. 

Captain Christian Brown, one of the early settlers of this 
town, erected a grist mill and a saw mill, previous to the Eev- 
olution, on a creek which flows into the Cobleskill near Barner- 
ville. These mills were not burned during the war, becauge a 
Tory named Sommer owned land near, and expected that 
Brown's place would be confiscated to the British Government 
a^d that he would then be able to obtain it. At the time the 
lower part of Cobleskill was plundered. Captain Brown hurried 
his family into the woods to protect them, and then returned 
to his house to secure some of his eflfects. While there, he saw 
from a window, a party of Indians approaching, and as he 
could not escape without being seen, he concealed himself, and 
after the Indians had pliindered it, he sought hirfan^ly and 
fled to a place of greater safety. While Brown was absent a 
wedding took place at his house. The parties were Brown's 
hired man and servant girl. The soldiers in the vicinity were 
invited guests, and all were abundantly served with pork and 
sour-crout, the best the house afforded. Brown's mills were 
erected on a stream a few rods from a deep pool from which the 


water issued. Some years after a saw mill was erected in Car- 
lisle op a stream which sank into the ground and disappeared 
near the mill. After this mill went into operation, sawdust 
appeared in the pool near Brown's mill, some ^hree miles dis- 

The first Town Meeting of Cohleskill was held at the house 
of Lambert Lawyer in 1797, at which John H. Sharer was 
chosen. Supervisor; Jstcob L Cuyler, Clerk; David Zfca, David

following persons : "Lambert Lawyer, Peter Bouck, William 
Snyder, Nicholas Bouse, Jacob Newton, Nicholas Smith, Wm. 
Baker,, Caleb Lamb and Lambert Shaver, who appeqf to be of 
good moral character and are of sufficient abilities each to keep 
a public Inn or Tavern, and that each of them has accom- 
modations to entertain travelers, and that it appears to the said 
Board that it is necessary for the accommodation of travelers 
that a tavern be kept at their several places of abode in the 
said town of Cobleskill." In 1802 the town voted that " Hogs 
Eun yoked, any person letting his hogs run and not yoked, if 
doing damage through a lawfnll fence as aforesaid, shall be 
fined fifty cents per head over and above all damages, to be re- 
covered by an action of Dt by the Complainer." In 1803 they 
declared " % feet long a lawful! yoak." The same year they 
resolved that "a Stocks be built at the house of Lambert 
Lawyer at the expense of the town, unanimously carried." In 
1806 voted a " Bounty on killing wolves 15 Dollars besides the 
usual Bounty allowed by law, and that no person shall be 
allowed the above bounty which is not an inhabitant of this 
town." In 1830 "Voted that the Paupers of the town of 
Cobleskill shall annually be sold at auction on the first Tues- 
day in May, where the licenses will be granted to retailers of 
strong and spirituous liquors."

CONJESVILLE, named in honor of Rev. Jonathan Cone, 
of Greene Co., was formed from Broome and Durham, (Greene 
Co.,) March 3, 1836. It is the south-east corner town of the 
County. The surface is generally a hilly upland, mountainous 
along the east border. The highest summits are from 1,600 to 
2,000 feet above the valleys. Schoharie Creek forms a small 
portion of the west boundary, and Manorkill flows west 
through the town a little south of the center. Near the mouth 
of Manorkill is a cascade of sixty feet. The valleys of these 
streams are bordered by high and often precipitous hills. 

Conesville, (p. v.) known as Ston,e Bridge, contains a church, 
a store, a hotel, a blacksmith shop, a shoe shop, a saw mill, and 
about a dozen dwellings. 

West Conesville, (p. v.) known as StryhersvilU, contains a 
Methodist church, a store, a boot and shoe shop, a milliner 
shop, two cooper shops and about a dozen dweUiJ^s. 


Manorkill (p, v.) contains a Methodist • church, a store, a

The town was named in honor of Eev. Jonathan Cone, of 
Durham, Greene Co. It was included in a tract granted to ITry 
Eichtmeyer and others. May 6, 1754, and known as Dise's Ma- 
nor. Tracts granted to Daniel Crane, Samuel Stringer, Walter 
McFarlane, John Eichtmeyer, Christian Patrie and others, 
were partly in this town. 

The first settlement was made by Ury Eichtmeyer in 1764. 
Ms. E. was joint owner of several pateijits with John Disc and 
others. During the Eevolution the settlers fled for safety to 
the Upper Fort. Peter Eichtmeyer was twice taken prisoner 
by the Indians under the Tory, Jones. An old lady named 
Eichtmeyer, who had been confined to bed for a long time, was 
in an upper room of the houses at the Fort when Johnson made 
an attack upon it. A shell exploded and fragments fell upon 
the roof of the house, so frightening Mrs. E. that she sprang 
from her bed and went below, but survived only a short time. 
After the war, Philip Krinple, Conrad Patrie, John Shew, Barent 
Stryker, Stephen Scovill, James Allerton, and Hubbard and 
Judah Luring, came into town. The last two were from Con- 
necticut. The first death was that of Ury Eichtmeyer, August 
14, 1769. Thomas Canfield taught a school in 1794. Peter 
Eichtmeyer kept the first inn, in 1784. Barent Stryker built 
the first mill above the Falls of Manorkill.' 

The population in 1870 was 1,314, and the area 31,459 acres. 

There are 12 school districts in the town, employi^ig 34 
teachers. The number of children of school age is 446 ; the 
average attendance, 167 ; the amount expended for teachers' 
wages during the year ending Sept. 30, 1871, was $2,101.96 ; 
other expenses, $304.91. 

MSPMRANCB, named from its principal village, was 
formed from Schoharie, April 4, 1846. A small part was re- 
annexed to Schoharie in 1850. It is the east town on the north 
border of the County. The surface consists of two ridges, ex- 
tending east and west across the town, separated by the valley 
of Schoharie Creek. The highest parts are 600 to 800 feet 
above the valley. The soil is chiefly a clayey loam. 

Hsperance, (p. v.) incorporated April 31, 1833, is situated on 
Schoharie Creek, on the east border of the town, and contains 
two dhurches, viz., Methodist and Presbyterian ; two hotels, 
four dry goods and grocery stores, a drug store, a hardware 
store, a jewelry store, a flour and feed store, a grist mill, a saw 
mill, a planing mill, a foundry, a plow manufactory, a machine 


shop, a harness shop, a wagon and sleigh shop, two tailor shops, 
two shoe shops, a paint shop, a school house and about 350 
inhabitants. It is about a mile and a half from the nearest 
station on the Albany & Susquehanna B. E.

The place was named in honor of John B. Sloan, an early set- 

The first settlement was made by Palatinates in 1711. 
Kneisherns Dorf was located opposite the mouth of the Oobles- 
kill, and was one of the first settlements in the County. 
'Amongthe settlers were John Peter Kneiskern, and families 
named Stubrach, Enders, Sidney, Bergh, Houck and others. 
The town comprises the whole of Jacob Henry Ten Eyok's 
Patent, surveyed in August 1761 ; a part of the Schoharie Pat- 
ent and a part of Sawyer & Zimmer's Second Allotment, with a 
part of the Stone Heap Patent. The last was granted to John 
Bowen and others, Sept. 15, 1770, and took its name from a 
large stone heap near Sl'oansville, and by the side of the Indian 
path leading from Fort Hunter to Schoharie. The Indians 
never failed to add a stone to the heap as they passed, and it 
had become very, large at the time of the first settlement by the 
Whites. Tradition safSi^ that two Mohawk hunters had a quar- 
rel at thil place, resttltingia the death of one of them, and that 
the heap was erected to perpetuate the memory of the event. A 
custom of the nationirequired everywarrior, in passing, to add 
a stone. It was four rods longy between one and two wide, and 
ten to fifteen' feet high. It was removed and laid into a wall 
some years ago. The route of. Sir John Johnson from Scho- 
harie' to the Mohawk in October 1780 was along this path. 
John Brown, J. B. Sloan and a man named Larkin, from Bhode 
Island, were early settler? at and near Sloansville. The site of 
the village of Esperance was purchased in 1800 by Gen. William 
North, laid out into lots and named from a French word signi- 
fying Hope. John Burt kept the first hotel at this place, where 
the Phoenix House now stands. Haynes&Isham built the first 
grist mill in Bsperance village, in 1868; The first town meet- 
ing was held May 19, 1846.

Isaac Levy's tract of 4,333 acres, surveyed in July 1770. 

The first settlements were made by Dutch and Palatinates 
about 1711. Among the early settlers were Peter Vrooman, son 
of the patentee, Cornelius and Bartholomew Vrooman, Nicho- 
las Feeck, Adam Brown, Tennis Vrooman, Michael Brown, 

Krissler, Prere Becker and Stephen Young, in the west part; 
and Wm. Bouck and his sons Johannes P., Christian and Wil- 
liam, Nicholas York and Henry Hager, in the east part. 

The Tipper Fort, so called during the Eevolution, stood in this 
town, at Pultc»nham. , It was on flie west side of the river near 
the village. "One side of this enclosure waspicketedin,whileon 
its other sides a breastwork was thrown up of timbers and earth, 
some eight or ten ffeet high, and sufficiently thick to admit of 
drawing a wagon upon its top, with short pickets set in the out- 
side timbers of the breastwork, A ditch surrounded the part 
thus constructed. Military barracks and small log huts were 
erected within the inclosure, to accommodate the soldiers and 
citizens. Block-houses aiid sentry-boxes were built in the north- 
west and south-east corners, each mounting a small cannon to 
guard its sides." 

Like other settlements in the Schoharie valley, this town suf- 
fered from the incursions of Tories and Indians. Many citizens 
were killed or taken captive, and buildings and other property 
were plundered and destroyed. Desolation followed in the path 
of th^ savages or more savage Tories. 

In July 1870, Mr. William Bouck leftthe Upper Port to go to' 
his residence, some two miles distant, to secure, his crops, tak- 
ing with him a female slave iiamed Nancy Lattimore, and her 
three children. In the evening while making preparations for 
retiring, four Indians, one of whom was kn«wn as Seth's Henry, 
entered the. house and made them prisoners. Dick, the young- 
est of the slaves, about eight years old, concealed. himself be- 
hind the door, but when he saw all the others about to leave, he 
made a noise to attract the attention of the Indians, as he was 
afraid to be left alone, and was consequently taken along. His 
captor carried him on his back Several ihiles to the place after- 
wards occupied by Gen. Patchin, where they encamped for the 
night. Expecting to be pursued, the Indians resumed their 
march before daylight, and encamped the following night at 


1 . ' 

Harpersfield. Here a Tory named Eose furnished them with 
corn bread and other provisiana for their journey. Soon after 
leaving the house of Eo6)e, they were discovered by a scout of 
four men, who were fired upon by the Indians, and one of them 
was seriously wounded. Not knowing the number of the foe, 
the scout left their wounded comrade witji Eose and started 
for the Fort. On their way, they me); a party of about twenty, 
under command of Lieutenant Bphraim Vrooman and Joseph 
Harper, who had been sent by Capt. !5ager in pursuit of the 
captorsof Mr. Bouck. Joining these, the whole party renewed 
the pursuit and soon had the satisfaction of recapturing the 
prisoners, though the Indians escaped. 

In August 1780, Captain Eager sent out a scout from the 
Upper Fort, to reconnoiter in the west part of this town, with 
instructions not to fire if theysaw any of the enemy and were 
not themselves discovered. While seated upon a fallen tree, 
eating their breakfast, they, saw a white man painted as an In- 
dian, within some fifty yards of them. He was so good a mark 
thatone of the party shot him dead. A small stream of water 
near was called, from this circumstance, Bead Manh Creek. 
The eneniy immediately appeared in hot pursuit. Leek, who 
had shot the man, started for the Fort, while Hoever and 
Winne, his companions, were driven into the woods in an 
opposite direction. Leek reached the Fort, but not enough in 
advance of his pursuers to have a seasonable alarm given to 
warn the citizens of the impending danger. The enemy con- 
sisted of seventy-three Indians and five Tories, commanded by 
Brant. Captain Hager had gone to his farm to draw in hay. 
Captain Tunis Vrooman had gone to his farm to secure wheat, 
taking with him his family. Lieut. Ephraim Vrooman had 
gone to his farm also, leaving the Fort under the command of 
Lieut. William Harper, with less than a dozen men. Captain 
yrooman's family consisted of a wife, four sons and two slaves. 
He felt a presentiment that some terrible event was to happen, 
and was on a constant lookout for the enemy. While unload- 
ing the second load of wheat, he disdovered the enemy 
approaching. He was tomahawked, scalped, and had his 
throat cut by a Schoharie Indian named John. His 
wife was washing near the honse and was tomahawked. The 
buildings were plundered and set on fire, and the three old- 
est boys, with the slaves, made prisoners. Peter, the youngest 
boy, concealed himself in the bushes^ but his place of conceal- 
ment was pointed out by one of the blacks, and he too was 
taken, had his throat cut, was scalped, and his body hung across 
the fence, by the infamous Tory, Beacraft. From this place 
Seth's Henry led several of the enemy to the house of Lieut. 


Vrooman. On hearing the alarm, he' ran to the house, caught 
his infant and fled to the cornfield, followed by his wife and one 
daughter. They were concealed a short distance from each 
othecand might have escaped had not Mrs. V. called to her hus- 
band, thus directing the attention of the savages to their place 
of retreat. She was immediately shot and scalped by Seth's 
Henry, while Beacraft killed her daughter with a Stone and 
scalped her. Another Indian attacked the Lieutenant with a 
spear, which was several times warded off, the infant in his arms 
smiling at the encounter, causing the savage to relent and make 
him a prisoner. Several others were taken prisoners. ■ Adam 
A. Vrooman fled to the Fort, pursued by the Indians until he 
arrived within its protection. When asked how he escaped, he 
replied, " I pulled foot." He was afterwards called Ptttt Foot 
Vrooman. Thirty persons in all were taken prisoners and five 
were killed. Abraham Vrooman was in "Vrooman's Land" 
with a large wagon, and when the alarm was given, drove 
down through the valley, picking up several of the citizens. 
Arriving at the residence of Jud^e Swart, he called to 
Mrs. Swart, who seized her infant, jumped into the wagon 
and started, just as the Indians with tomahawk in hand arrived 
at her dwelling. Vrooman had a powerful team and did not 
stop to open the gates that obstructed the highway, but forced 
them open by driving against them. The enemy burnt nine 
dwellings with the barns and barracks of grain, and took away 
ninety ,good horses. 'Large pieces of meat were cut from the 
cattle and hogs killed, and carried away to supply them on 
their journey. Among the plunder was a fine stallion belong- 
ing to Judge Swart.. The Indians being afraid of him, young 
Tunis Vrooman took him in charge and rode him to Canada. 
This saved him from the gauntlet and much other ill treatment 
The enemy proceeded up the river to a grist mill owned by the 
Tory, Adam Crysler, took what flour it contained and set the 
mill on fire that it might not serve the rebels any longer. The 
burial of the dead took place the next day, on the farm of 
John Peeck, near the Upper Fort. Before reaching Harpers- 
field, Brant allowed all of the women, except Mrs. Simon Vroo- 
man and several of the children, to return to their homes. The 
other prisoners suffered the usual hardships from hunger,, 
fatigue and the gauntlet, after arriving at the Indian settlements. 
Most of them were afterwards exchanged and returned to Scho- 

The Lutheran Church of Breakabeen was organized in 1^43, by

The following account of the first tea party in the County, 
given by one of the Vrooman families in Vrooman's Land, is 
taken from Simm's History : 

"When the enlivener was announced as ready the party 
gathered about a round table, upon which stood not a morsel 
of anything to eat, except a liberal lump of maple sugar, 
placed beside each cup. As the India beverage entered the 
cups from a kettle in which it had been boiled as one would 
boil potatoes, great was the curiosity to know how it might 
taste; but it was soon satisfied in most of the guests who 
sipped and did nothing but sip, at a beverage that would have 
borne an egg. No milk was used in the tea at Vrooman's. 
Miss Loucks, who did not like sugar, ashamed to have the rest 
of the party think she. had not used hers, slipped it into a 
side pocket and carried it home. The ancient Dutch custom 
always placed a lump of sugar beside each cup, and did not 
allow it to -dissolve until it entered the mouth, when a frequent 
nibble snflBoed. In doing the honors of a table twenty-five 
years ago, the question — Will you bite 'or stir ? — was asked each 

The population of the town in 1870 was 2,700, and the area 

There are 17 school districts, employing 19 male and 14 
female teachers. The number of' children of school age is 
1,010 ; the number attending school, 809 ; the average attend- 
ance, 34? ; the value of school houses and sites, $6,905 ; the 
amount expended for school purposes during the year ending 
September 30, 1871, was $4,665.47. . ° •' 

OILBOA was formed from Blenheim and Broome, March 
16, 1848. It is the central town upon the south border of the 
County. The surface is a mountainous upland, broken by deep 
ravines. Schoharie Creek flows north through the center, re- 
ceiving Plattenkill from the east, and Minekill from the west. 
The streams are bordered by steep hillsides rising from 3000 to 
3000 feet above tide. The soil is a gravelly and clayey loam. 

Gilhoa, (p. 0.) on the Schoharie Creek, contains two churches, 
viz., Methodist and Presbyterian, a hotel, a store, a school house, 
a milliner shop, two blacksmith shops, two harness shops, a 
wagon shop, a paint shop, a cabinet shop, a tailor shop, two 
watchmakers, a boot and shoe shop and 24 dwellings . A daily 
line of stages connects this place with the Kondout & Oswego 
Eailroad and with the Middlebnrgh & Schoharie Railroad.

Broome Center (p. o.) contains a store, a hotel, a blacksmith 
and carriage shop, and about half a dozen houses. 

Minekill Falls is a post office. 

West Gilboa is a hamlet. 

South Gilboa (p. v.) contains about twenty dwellings.

The settlement of this town was commenced in 1764, by 
Matthew and Jacob Dise. They joined the British during the 
Eevolution and fled to Canada. Among the early settlers after 
the war were Eichard Stanley, Joseph Desilva, Benopi Frazer, 
Cornelius Lane, John Brea^ter, Isaac Van Port, Daniel Con- 
over and Jacob Homer, all from New England. Ruloff Voor-, 
hees kept the first inn, in 1785 ; John Dise built the first mills, 
in 1764> and Jonah Soper, the first tannery, in 1800. The 
town embraces a part of the Blenheim Patent, with parts of 

grants to Ury Rightmeyer, David Buffington-and Scott, 

and a part of the "State Lands." The last, named tracts com- 
prised the lands escheated to the State by failure of titles and 
the confiscated estates of Tories. 

The Reformed Church of Gilboa was organized about 1800. 
During its early history it had several different names, but was 
known especially as the " The Manor Church." The early 
records of the Ohftrch not being accessible, we are unable to 
give particulars of its early history. Eev. Cornelius D. Scher- 
merhorn was the first pastor, his ministry .beginning about 
1803. The first house of worship was erected soon after 1800, 
and stood in the town of Conesville, about three miles east of 
.the present site. About the year 1836, the church edifice was 
removed from its original site and rebuilt where it now stands, 
at which time the Church received its present name. The 
present number of members is 120 ; the pastor is Eev. Wm. S. 
Moore, and the value pf church property is $4,000. 

The Flat Creek Baptist Church, in North Gilboa^ was organized 
January 2, 1831, by Rev. John Ormsbee with thirteen members.

a cost of $3,30O, with a seating ca^ci^ of 300. The present 
membership is 135 ; the pastor is Rev. J. B. Yanhoesen, and the 
value of church property is $3,500. 

A violent freshet occurred in this town and all along the 
Schoharie Valley a few years since, doing a great deal of damage. 

The population of the town in 1870 was 2,222, and its area, 
36,538 acres.

JEFFEB80N was formed from Blenheim, February 12, 
1803. A part of Summit was taken off in 1819. It is on the 
south line of the County, near the south-west corner. The sur- 
face is a hilly uplalid, the principal summits being about 1,000 
feet above the valleys and 2,000 above tide. Mine Hill, in the 
south part, is estimated to be 3,200 feet above tid«. A high ridge 
extending through the town near the center, forms the water- 
shed between Ddawa,re and Mohawk Rivers. Uts^antha Lake 
is a small sheet of water on the south line. It is 1,800 feet 
above tide; it is often mentioned in old documents and was an 
angle in the bounds of Albany County in Coloniial times. It is 
the source of the west branch of the Delaware. < 

Jefferson, (p. o.) situated near the center, contains two 
churches, viz., Methodist and Presbyterian, a hotel, six stores, a

The first settlements were made in different parts of the town 
in 1794. , Amos and Caleb Northrop settled in the east part; 
Samuel and Noah Judson settled near Utsyamtha Lake ; Henry 
Shelmerdine and James McKenzie, in the north-east part, on 
Westkill ; Stephen Marvin, Erastus Judd and Aaron Jones 
settled near the village. Most of these settlers were from New 
England. The first marriage was that of Marvin Judd and 
Lois Gibbs, in August 1800, and the first death was that of 
Elsie Judd, in June 1799. Heman Hickok taught the first 
school, in 1799. Canfield Coe kept the first inn, m 1794, and 
Rodman Lewis the first store, in 1800. Stephen Judd built the 
first saw mill, in 1796, and Heman Hickok the first grist mill, 
in 1799. The first tannery was built by Eli Jones, in 1810. 

A battle occurred near Lake Utsyantha, on the border of 
this town, between a party of Rangers under Captain Hager, 
with a company of eastern troops under Captain Hale, on one 


( '■ — . — : 

side, and a party of Tories and Indians under Brant. Owing 
to the cowardly cond.uct of Gaptain Hale, the enemy were 
allowed to escape. The raid of the enemy was made at this 
time, Not. 1781, partly for the purpose of carrying to Canada 
the family of Captain Adam Crysler, a notorious Tory, whose 
family had remained near the Upper Port until this time. 
They had doubtless hoped that the rebellion would be put 
down and that th^ would still have the privilege of living in 
peace under the reign of King George. The night previous to 
the battle, the Americans encamped without building a fire, 
not deeming it prudent to do so, while so near an enemy of 
whose numbers they were ignorant They suffered consider- 
ably from the cold during the night, and th&.next day, Johan 
Jost Dietz and Peter Vrooman were left at the place of en- 
campment, in charge of a keg of rum and a quantity of pro- 
visions, to await the return of the troops. The rum was faith- 
fully guarded, by taking a large quantity of it into their own 

Mrs. Polly Dyer, now aged 91 years, moved into this town in 
1803. Mrs. Eeuben Merchant came in from Watertown, Conn., 
in 1803. 

The Methodist Church of West Jefferson was organized in 
1800 with about a dozen members. Thie first pastors were 
Zenas Covel and Daniel Ireland, circuit preachers. The first

was re-annexed to Schoharie, March j26, 1798. Pulton was 
taken oflf in 1828, and parts were attfieked, to Broome in 1849, 
It is the central town on the east border of the County. The 
surface is a hilly upland, divided into two ridges by the valley 
of Schoharie Creek, which extends north and south through 
the town. The|highest summits are from 600 to 800 feet above' 
the valley^ A hill opposite Middleburgh village was called by 
the Indians On-can-ge-na, meaning " Mountain of Snakes." A 
mountain just above Middleburgh, on the west side, was called 
0-nis-ta-gra-wa ; the one next west was called To-wole-nou-ra, or 
" Spring Hill," and one south-east of Middleburgh, Mo-he-gou-. 
ter. Schoharie Creek receives Little Schoharie Creek from the 
east, and Linekill from the west. The hills bordering upon 
the streams are generally steep and sometimes precipitous. 
The soil is a clayey loam upon the hills and a sandy loam in 
the valleys. Hops and broom-corn are extensively cultivated.. 

Middleburgh, (p. T.) situated on the east bank of the Scho- 
harie Creek, about a mile south of the center of the town, 
contains five churches, viz., Methodist, Reformed, Lutherauj 
Episcopal and True Dutch ; three hotels, a carpenter and 
builder establishment, a wagon shop,' two blacksmith shops,

The first settlements were made by Palatines in 1711. Weis- 
ers Doif, one of the first established in the County, was located 
on a part of the present site of the village of Middleburgh. It 
contained about forty dwellings, small rude huts, built of logs 
and earth , and edvered with bark or grass. Hartman's Dorf was 


also in this towni about two miles north of Weiser's. Hart- 
man's Dorf was the largest of the seven Tillages in this County 
founded by the Palatines. It is said to have contained sixty- 
live dwellings, similar in construction tp those of Weiser's Dorf. 
The first horse owned by the settlers was purchased at Schenec- 
tady by nine residents of this dorf. From Simm's "History of 
Schoharie," we quote the following account of a foot race, which 
■doubtless created as great an interest as a horse race does in 
these days : 

"In the summer of 1713 or '14: & Stump was given by the In- 
dians to their German neighbors at Weiser's Dorf, to run a foot 
race, offering to stake on the issue, a lot of dressed deer-skins 
against some article the Germans possessed, possibly their old 
mare. The challenge was accepted, and a son of Conrad Weiser 
was selected, to run against a little dark Indian called the most 
agile on foot of all the tribe. On a beautiful dm the parties 
assembled at Weiser's Dorf to witness the race. llie race-course 
was above the village, and on either side the Germans and In- 
dians took stations to encourage their favorites. About 
individual bets on the occasion I have nothing to say. The 
couple started a distance of half a mile or more from the goal, 
at a given signal, and onward they dashed with the fleetness of 
antelopes, amid' the shouts and huzzas of the spectators. The 
race was to terminate just beyond the most southern dwelling 
of Weiser's Dorf. They ran with nearly equal- speed until their 
arrival at the dwelling mentioned, sometimes fortune inclining 
to the white, and sometimes to the red skin ; when an unex- 

Eected event decided the contest in favor of the German. They 
ad to run very close to the building, and Weiser, being on the 
outside as they approached it side by side, sprang with all his 
might against his competitor. The sudden impetus forced the 
Indian against thebuilding, and he rebounded and fell half dead 
upon the ground. Weiser then easily won the race, amid the 
loud triumphant shouts of his counteymen." 

Though the Indians were greatly enraged at first, they were 
appeased on Weiser's expressing himself very sorry that it hap- 
pened, arid declaring that it was unavoidable. 

It was at Weiser's Dorf that the people assembled under 
commandjof Madeline Zeh and administered summary punish- 
ment upon the Sheriff Adams fop daring to enforce the law 
against the inhabitants of that village> as stated Jn the County 
[history. Finding they could not enjoy their lands rent free, 
Weiser and some of his neighbors removed to Pennsylvania. 


This town comprises parts of Schoharie Patent, Lawyer's and 
Zimmer's 1st Allotment, together with the patents of Thomas 
Eckerson, Becker & Eckerson, Thomas and Cornelius Eokerson, 
Clark, Depeyster, Vrooman, John Butler, Bouck, Lawrence 
Lawyer, Nichol*9 Mattice and the Vlaie Patent. 

The. Vrooman family were remarkable for their strength. 
There were four brothers, sons of Peter Vrooman, named 
Cornelius, Samuel, Peter and Isaac. They erected the first 
saw mill in the County^ on the Little Schoharie. It is said 
that two of them could carry a good' sized log on the cu'riage. 
At a hill called the Long Berg, on the Albany road, Cornelius 
Vrooman was accustomed to carry one or two bags of wheat 
on his shoulders, to favor his horsC; when going to Albany 
with a load of wheat. Samuel Vrooman is said to hare carried 
at one time twelve skipples of wheat and a harrow with iron 
teeth, from his father's house to the field, a shori distance off. 
A qhallenge of speed and strength between the inhabitants of 
the Mohawk and Schoharie Valleys took place at Schoharie. 
A sleigh was placed on bare ground, and with twelve heavy 
men in it, Cornelius Vi^pom^n, by the end of the tongue, drew 
it one and a half feet. Cornelius Eonda,, the Mohawk bully, 
attempted in vain to start it. Adam Crysler ran a,fp9t race 
with a man named Doxstader, from the Mohawk Valley, and 
easily won the race. 

- At the beginning of the French war, a treaty with the 
Indians was held in the present town of Mjddleburgh, It was 
numerously attended. Queter, an Oquago chief, who spoke in 
the interest of the French, alluding to their union, laid an 
iron wedge upon a fallen tree saying, "We are like that, strong 
and cannot be broken." Mrs. Josias Swart is said to have 
acted as interpreter upon the occasion. Takinga guinea from 
her pocket, she placed it upon the wedge, saying, "We are like 
that, which is equally strong and can outlive your symbol ; ibr 
if both be buried in the ground, the rust will destroy yours, 
wbile ours will come out as strong and bright as ever," It is 
supposed that Sir William Johnson was present on this occa- 
sion, as there were chiefs assembled from seiveral diflferent 
tribes. After the conquest of Canada, a jubilee was held on 
the same ground, at which a barrel of rnnl was drank. A 
bonfire was also built by piling pine knots around a dry tree. 
On this occasion Judge Bi^Own was present andwrestled with a 
young Indian whom he threw. His cries on getting up, 
brought his mother into the arena, who struck Brown on the 
head with a pine knot, knocking him down and nearly taking 
his life. 


This was a promiiieiiirj»oint during the Revolution, the Mid- 
dle Fort being erected near the present site of the village. The 
siege by Sir John Johnson is described in tbe general history of 
the County. Most of the riflemen whose headquarters were at 
the forts in this County, were em^oyedas scouts, some of them 
being out most of the time. They were called Rangers and 
their duties were both fatiguing and hazardous. A scout was 
sent out from the Middle Fort and returned the evening before 
the attack of Sir John Johnson, having been absent thirteen 
days, visiting during their absence, Punchkill, Cherry Valley, 
Sharon, Uinadilla, Susquehanna, Delhi, Minisink and Cairo. 
At the close of the war, prosperity returned to this valley, and 
the arts of peace have had full sway. 

The following advertisement appeared in The True American 
in 1811. As a sample of hotel advertising in "ye olden time," 
it is worth preserving :

SCHOHABIE was formed as a district, March 24, 1772, 
and as a town, March 7, 1788. Sharon, Cobleskill, Middle- 
burgh and Blenheim, were taken off in 1797, and Esperance 
and Wright in 1846. A part of Middl^bu^h was re-annexed 
in 1798, and a part of Esperance in 1850. fi lies in th^e north- 
east part of the County, its north-east corner bordering on 
Schenectady County. The surface is a hilly upland, broken 
by the deep valleys of the streams. The declivities of the 
hills are generally gradual slopes, and their summits are from 
400 to 500 feet above the valleys. The Albany & Susquehanna 
R. R, upon the north line of the town, is 550 feet above tide. 
Schoharie Creek flows north through near the center, receiving 
Pox Creek from the east, and. Cobleskill from "the west In 
the limestone region in this town are numerous caverns. Ball's 
Cave, or Gebhard's Cave, is about four miles east of the Court 
House and was flrst explored in 1831. It descends about one, 
hundred feet below the surface. A stream of water, with small 
cascades, flows through it, that must be crossed by a boat. 
When first explored it abounded in stalactites. I^ehiaway's 
Cave, two miles south-east of the Court House, was explored 
in 1836 by John Gebhard and John Bonny. It was found in- 
ferior in size and interest to Gebha:rd'8. A few fine ^eciibens 


of colored rhombohedral spar were found in it.- The soil upon 
the hills is a clayey loam^ and in the Talleys a grayelly loam 
and alluTium. Bops and broom corn are extensively cultivated. 
Schoharie, (p, v.) the County Seat, is pleasantly situatfed in 
the valley of Schoharie Creek, a little . gouth of the center pf 
the town. It contains besides the County buildings, four 
churches, viz., Lutheran, lleformed, Metnodist and Zion 
Methodist ; an academy, a bank, two newspaper offices, three ho- 
tels, a hub and spoke factory, a carriage factory, a number of 
storSs and mechanic shops of various kinds, and about 1600 
inhabitants. It is connected with the A. & S. E. K. at Central 
Bridge by the Schoharie Valley B. B., and with Middleburgh 
also by railroad. The principal street is well shaded by trees 
and bordered by good flagstone walks. There are several fine 
business blocks and two large hotels which present fronts and 
iaternal arrangements which would be creditable to a much 
larger town. Waterbury & Sons have a brick yard, making half 
a million bricks annually and located a mile north-e^t of the 
Court House. 

The Schoharie Academy, located in this village, Was incorpora- 
ted by the Legislature, April 28, 1837, and by theEegents, Feb. 
5. 1839. The course of study is extensive, affording young 
ladies and geiitlemen all the facilities of a first-class academy. 
The apparatus and library are sufficient for the necessities of the 
students. Under its present management it bids fair to return 
to its former standing among the institutions of the State. 

Central Bridge, (p. v.) in the north part of the town, near the 
junction of the Schoharie Creek and Cobleskill, is a station on 
the A. & S. E. E. and the junction of the Schoharie Valley E. E. 
The old village of Central Bridge, on the south side ot the 
Cobleskill, about half a mile from the station, contains two 
churches, a hotel, a store, a harness shop, a blacksmith shop, a 
wagon shop, two grist mills, two saw mills, a machine shop and 
about twenty houses. At the station the building* are nearly 
all new, and quite a number in process of construction, and 
consist of two hotels,five stores, severai mechanic shops of various 
kinds, and abouktwenty dwelliligs. 

The Lutheran Cemetery is located on high grounds near the 
village of Schoharie and commands a fine view of the, surround- 
ing scenery. There are some fine monuments, and portions of • 
the ground indicate good taste in its arrangement. The old 
parsonage of the Lutheran .Church is still standing upon the 

The Old Stone Fort Oemefery takes its. name from the stone 
church which was inclosed by pickets during the Eevolution 



and is still standing in the inclosure. This association was in- 
corporated about ten years ago, but little was done to improve 
the grounds; About three years ago a new Board of Trustees 
was appointed, and under the the management of the President, 
Dr. Peter S. Swart, and Mr. Almerin Gallup, the Secretary and 
Treasurer, the grounds are undergoing great improvement and 
the place bids fair to become one .of the most attractive points 
in this beautiful valley. The grounds embrace about seven 
acres, including the old cemetery, where rest the ashes of the 
actors in the Eevolutionary struggle. 

The first settlement was made in 1711 by a colony of Ger- 
man Palatinates who had previoudy settled on the Hudson. 
Bruna Dorf was near the present site- of the Court House. 
The name is said to signify the "Town of Springs." John 
Lawyer was the principal man in this settlement. About a 
mile north of this was Smith's Dorf. Fox's Dorf . was the 
next, and rjeceived its name from William Fox. It was in the 
vicinity of Fox's Creek, which still bears his name. Garlock's 
Dorf was the next on the north. Kneiskern's Dorf was on the 
east side of Schoharie Creek, opposite the mouth of Cobleskill. 
The descendants of many of the first settlers still reside in the 
County. The town includes parts of the Schoharie, Morris & 
Coeyman's, Lawyer & Bergh's, and the 2d Allotment of Lawyer 
& Zimmer's Patents. The first grist mill in the County was 
erected by Simeon ]^ara,way, on a small stream that flows into 
Fox Creek about a niiile above its mouth. A man named Cobel 
afterwards erected a mill on a small creek that flows into the 
Schoharie just below the bridge, about a mile from the Court 
House, and another near the mouth of the creek that still 
bears his name. Bolting cloths were not introduced until 
about 1760, by Henry "Weaver. 

When Johnson made his raid into the valley in October 
1780, the Lower Fort, including the old stone church, was gar- 
risoned by about 150 or 200 men under the command of Major 
Becker. Hearing the firing at the forts up the valley. Major 
Becker dispatched Jacob Van Dyck, Anthony Brantner and 
Barney Cadugney, on the morning of October 17, to learn its 
cause. They proceeded up towards the Middle Fort until they 
were met by the advance of the enemy and were pursued by 
seven Indians led by one who was known in those times as 
Seth's Henry. They were fired upon and one of the scouts 
was wounded by a splinter torn from the fence by a shot. 
When the firing ceased at the Middle Fort for the flag of truce 
to advance. Major Becker sent out another scout, consisting of 
George Snyder, Jacob Bnders, John Van Wart and John Hutt, 
to nscertain whether the Fort was captured. The second scout 


met the first and joined it in the flight. They were hotly pur- 
sued and were obhged to separate, Enders and Snyder taking 
refuge behind a rock just as a volley of bullets spent their 
force upon it. They however arrived at the Eort in safety. 
Van Wart stopped at a house for a lunoli and was surprised 
and killed. John Ingold with all his family was in the Fort, 
except his stepfather, A^nthony Witner, who refused to leave the 
house. He had with him an old gun with which to defend 
himself. The house was burned and in the ruins were found 
the remains of two skeletons, that of Witner being identified 
. by the silver knee-buckles. Ample time had been given to get 
everything in readiness for the defense of the Lower Port. 
Several barrds of water were in readiness in case the church 
should be set onflre. The magazine, which was well supplied,^ 
was under the pulpit and in charge of Dr. George Werth, who 
acted as surgeon. In the tower of the church, under the com- 
mand of Ensign Jacob Lawyer, Jr., some fifteen or twenty good 
marksmen were stationed. A number of women stood at the 
pickets with spears, pitchforks and other implements, with 
which to greet the enemy. The enemy approached the Fort 
about four o'clock in the afternoon and were saluted with a 
discharge of grape and canister from a small cannon. This 
was called by Col. Johnson, the " grass-hopper." As many of 
the enemy were seen to fall when it was discharged, it was sup- 
posed to have done good execution, but they had only drop- 
ped down to escape the shot. When fired upon, the regulars 
under Johnson passed across the flats, west of the Fort, and 
crossed Fox Creek below the old saw mill. The Indians under 
Brant passed to the east and crossed the creek, a few only re- 
maining to burn the buildings. The wood work of Tunis 
Swart's tavern, the walls of which are still . standing, was 
burned. The house now owned by Mrs. Deitz, a short distance 
south-east of the Fort, was built before the Eevolution. An 
Indian was seen approaching the house with a fire-brand, when 
several rifles were discharged at him from the tower, causing 
him to take refuge behind a tree to escape from view. Five 
balls- struck the faee, and the Indian made no further attempt 
to burn, the house. Several shots from a small cannon carried 
by the enemy, were fired ^t the church, and two bajls lodged in 
the roof. The hole made by one of them in the cornice is still 
to be seen. An Indian who was concealed behind a tree on the 
bank of the creek, lodged three balls in the tower of the 
church, but upon the shot being returned from the tower, he 
decamped in haste. A dwelling and grist mill, standing near 
the Fort, were set on fire, but were extinguished after the 
enemy left.

The stone church, just mentioned, was erected in 1773, it is 
still standing and the walls remain as they were erected. It 
was sold to the State a few years ago for an armory, and a new 
roof put on and some change made in the interior. The names 
of many of the contributors to its erection were cut upon the 
walls and are still legible. The following are among them : 
Dennis Swait, 1772, Johannes Lawyer, Esq., Archibald Oamell, 
Geo. Eiohtmeyer, Christian Richtmeyer, Maria Elizabeth Werth, 
Peter Schneider, B. M. 1773. Johannes Ball, Harma,nes Sit- 
tenich, Wm. Dietz, B. M., Johannes Dietz, Johannes Enders, 
Jacob Enders, Jr., Peter Enders, Jacob Enders, Jacob Bar- 
tholomew, Philip Schuyler, Jacob Schneyder, Nicholas Rickard, 
John Eekerson, favor of the ground 1772 ; Lorrens Sohulecraft, 
Peter Ball, Josiah Clark, Christian Lawyer, Gertruy Swart,

Becker, Jacob Zimmer, Adam Zimmer, Geo. Becker, Willem 
Brown, Josias Swart, Johannes Rickert, Marc's Rickert, Henrioh 
Werth, Johannes Werth, Wilhelm Hammer, Bafthollomeus 
Vroman, Bartho's Swart Rev. Johannes Schuyler, V. D. M., 
was the pastor at the time the church was built, and Philip 
Schuyler was the builder. There are indications that certain 
names have been erased, and tradition says that the price for 
carving the names of those not contributors to its erection was 
a gallon of rum, and some whose names were cut upon the 
stones, failed to fulfill their part of the contract, and their 
names were erased. Upon a small headstone in the cemetery 
is the following inscription : " In memory of Col. Peter Vro- 
man who departed this life Dec. %% 1793, aged 57 years, 9 
months and 9 days." He had command of the Schoharie forts 
most of the time after their erection. 

The first town meeting of which any records can be found, 
was held at the house of Johannis Ingold, the first Tuesday in 
April 1797, and continued by adjournment till Wednesday. 
Henry Becker was chosen Town Clerk ; Jacob Beecker, Jacob 
Kniskern, P. Swart, Casper Rouse, Henricus Shafer, Assessors; 
David Sternb^rgh, Peter Swart, Johh Enders, Commissioners 
of Highways; Wm. Mlhn, Collector; George TifiknVj Jacob 
Gebhard, James Brown, Commissioners of schools ; Henricus 
Shafer, Henry Weaver, Overseers of Poor; Johannes J. Lawyer, 
Pound Master ; Richard Green, Jacob Smith, Wm. Schoolcraft, 
Constables ; Marcus Shafer, Jacob Sidnigh, Peter !6all, Petet

next year their pay Ivas slightly reduced, as they were 
voted " five shillings and eleven pence half penny, for each day 


* : 

he shall be employed in the duties of his ofiBce." In 1804, 
"' Kesolved that Every Crow Killed six Cents if Braugh to the 
Town Clark and the Town Clark Cuts of the head and gives a 
Certificate." Here is another of the same sort : " Eleven Dol- 
lars Bounty for killing Wolves in this Town by the Casting 
Vote at Town Meeting." In 1808, " Eesolved that no hogs or 
cattle shall run at large in the winter season when slays are a 
going under a penalty of twenty-five cents for each offence to 
be recovered by any person who will sue for the same, one moie- 
ty to the prosecution and the other moiety to the overseers of 
poor of said town." 

St. Paula Church (Evangelical Lutheran) was the first organ- 
ized in the town. The precise time is not known, but it is sup- 
posed to have been soon after the settlement. Eev. Peter 
. Nicholas Sommer, the first pastor, a native of Hamburgh, Ger- 
many, received a call from the Congregation on the 7th of Sept, 
1743, while yet a candidate for the ministry. He arrived at 
Schoharie May 25, 1,743, and on the 30th of the same month 
preached his introductory sermon and entered upon the per- 
formance of pastoral , duties. The first vestry meeting of 
which there is any record, was held June 8, 1743, at which 
were the following ofiBcers : Abraham Berg, elder; Henry 
Schaeffer and Peter Loewenstein, deacons. It was re- 
solved to commence the erection of a parsonage as a place of 
residence for the minister and ^place of worship for the con- 
gregation. On the 3d of July 1743 the Sacrament of the 
Lord's Supper was administered to 100 communicants, and on 
the 13th of September of the same year, the^r services were held 
for the first time in the new parsonage. The corner stone of 
the first church edifice was laid May 10, 1750, and it was dedi- 
cated on Whitsuntide, May 6th, 1751. It was a stone structure, 
located on the present cemetery grounds. Mr. Sommer continu- 
ed as pastor until the close of the year 1780. He was succeeded 
by Kev. Anthonjr Theodore Braun, who was followed by'Kev. 
Frederick H. Quitman, in the second year of whose ministry, 
1796, the present house of worship was erected. It is a sub- 
stantial brick structure, seating abouti600. It has been twice 
remodeled, and with suitable repairs will serve the congregation 
for many years. Ten settled pastors,, including the present in- 
cumbent, Eej. J. H. Heck, have ministered to this congrega- 
tion since i«s organization. After becoming the mother of 
several churches in the County, this Church has a recorded 
membership of about 300 communicants. The original cost of 
the present church edifice was about $5,000, exclusive of con- 
tributions of materials and labor. The present value of the 
church and parsonage is about $30,000. Some of the stones in 


. ' ^ ' 

the first church edifice were used in the foundation of the pres- 
ent structurej some of the names originsllly cut upon them, 
still remaining legible. Among the more prominent is the 
following, " Johannes Lawyer, Diaoonus & conditor Hujus Bc- 
clesise Fund, D. 14, May 1750, consum 1751." Other names, 
Jacob Friederich Lawyer, Job's. Schuyler, V. D. M., Johannes 
Lawyer Jr., Johannes Kniskern, Ludwic Kickert, Henrich 
Schaffer, Jost Borst, Margaretta Ingolt, Elisabeth Lawyer and 
Philip Berg.

records have been burned. The old stone church was erected 
in 1773 ; Eev. Johannes Schuyler .was for many years the pastor. 
The J)resent edifice was erected in 1844 ; it cost $5,500 and 'will 
seat 350. The present membership is 122, and the value of the 
church property is about $10,000. 

The Methodist Church was -organized in 1840 by Eev. Mr. 
Poor, with twelve members. Their house of worship was 
erected in 1842 ; it will seat 300 and cost $4,000, The present 
value of church and parsonage is $5,000. The membership 
numbers 110, and the pastor is Bev. 0. Mott.

Prom copies of Schoharie newspapers of an early date, we 
give a few advertisements. In The True American, 1811, is the

The population of the town in 1870 was 8,207, and its area 
15,§30 acres. 

The number of school districts in the town is 12, employing 
23 teachers. The number of children of school age is 1,090 ; 
the arerage attendance, 297; the "amount expended for teachers' 
wages during the year ending Sept. 30, 1871, was $2,4:67.51 ;

SEW AMD, named in honor of Wm. H, Seward, was 
formed from Sharon", Feb. 11, 1840. It lies on the west border 
of the County, north of the center. The surface is a hilly and 
broken upland, the highest summits being from 300 to 500 
feet above the yalleys. Westkill, ttie principal staream, flows 
south-east through near the center. The soil is a clayey loam. 
Hops and other products are raised to considerable extent. 
Dairying is also carried on. Bound Head Hill, half a mile 
south-east of Seward Valley, is about 500 feet high. Frdm its 
summit is a fine view of the surrounding countryv 

Hyndaville, (p. v.) in the south part, is a station on the Sharon 
& Cherry Valley R. R., and contains a Methodist church, three 
stores, two blacksmith shops, two wagon shops, an undertaker 
shop, three hotels, a grist and flouring mill, two saw mills, a 
harness shop, a tin shop, a cooper shop, a milliner store and 
about 200 inhabitants.

the ofElcers of the association. 

Janesville, situated about half a mile north-west of Hyndsville, 
contains a Methodist church, a saw mill, several mechanic

The first settlement of the town was made in 1754 by a col- 
ony of Germans. Their settlement was known as Nep DoT^htchu 
The first settlers were Sebastian France, Michael Merokley,, 
Henry Hynds and Ernest Fritz. Among the other early set- 
tlers were Caleb Crospot, Wm. Ernest Spornhyer, Conrad 
Brown,' William Bipsomah, Henry France, Henry HaneSj 
Geronimus Chrysler, and John, Peter and Martin Sommer, 
sons of Kev. P. N. Sommer, the first pastor of the Lutheran 
Church in Schoharie. The first Genman school was taught 
by a man named Phaughwer; the first inn was kept by Thomas 
Almy, and the first store by Wm. E. Spornhyer. Wm. Hynda 
built the first saw mill, and Henry Hanes the first grist mill. 
The first child born in the town was Christopher France. 


When the Eetolutionary War broke out, three brothersj' 
named Wm., John; and Philip Crysler, who lived in New Dor- 
lach, were Tories, and went to Canada m 1777. Philip Crysler, 
whose family remained at New Dorlach, was desirous of re^^ 
moving to Canada, and for that purpose had a party assigned 
to him in 1780, just'before Johnson's invasion of Schoharie. 
The party, consisting of eighteen Indians and three Tories, first 
.made their appearance at the house of Michael Merckley. They 
captured his two daughters, a son and two other boys, the 
rest of the family being absent from home at the time. When 
Mr. Merckley returned home, he saw tlie Indians, and while 
dismounting from his horse, was shot dead and scalped. Miss 
Catharine Merckley, a niece of the one just mentioned, was 
also shot and scalped. Bastian Prance, on hearing the firing, 
took his gun and started for the Schoharie Port. One of his 
children was killed and several were taken prisoners. Those 
who escaped, concealed themselves in the woods until the enemy 
were gone and it was considered safe to come from their con- 
cealment. The descendants of Mr. Prance are now quite nu- 
merous in this town. 

Christopher Prance, who was at the Schoharie Port at the 
time of this attack, was afterwards taken prisoner by the In- 
dians and escaped on the second day of his captivity, by running, 
being one of the swiftest runners of the country. He was pur- 
sued in his flight, and coming to a stream with high banks and' 
a deep swift current, he seized a pole and placing one end in 
the water, leaped across, tb the great astonishment of his pur- 
surers, who gave up the chase. At another time his feet saved 
him from cfipture by an unarmed band of Indians. 

Jacob Prance served during the war and was one of the most 
daring and effective actors in this County. 

During the same season, previous to the events already nar- 
rated, a party consisting of seven Indians, a 8q,uaw, and Adam 
Crysler, a Tory, arrived in the settlement and put up at the 
house of Michael Merckley. Their, object was to capture Bas- 
tian Prance, but he being absent, it was suggested that the fam- 
ily of Wm.Hynds would serve as a substitute. The next day, 
while at dinner, the family of Hynds, consisting of himself, 
wife and seven children, were surprised and taken prisoners. 
Pour horses were taken ; the plunder was placed upon the 
backs of three of them, and upon the fourth Mrs. Hynds and 
several Of her small children were placed. The party were 
three weeks in going to Niagara. On passing Indian villages 
they were much abused by squaws and children. Mrs. Hynds 
and four of the children died while in captivity. After suffer- 
ing the hardships of their captivity for two years and a half, 


Mr. Hynds and two of his remaining children returned home, 
with nearly three hundred other prisoners. One daughter 
remained in Canada nearly three years longer. 

The Lutheran Church of Gardnerville was organized in 1837 
by Rev. P. Wieting, the first pastor. The first house of wor- 
ship was erected in 1849 at a cost of $3,000. The present 
house was erected in 1861 ; it will seat 500 and is valued at 
$5,000. The present membership is 285. The first pastor con- 
tinued with this Church until his death. Rev. P. H. Turner 
was his successor, and after serving the Church for a little more 
than two years, he died suddenly, leaving the Church without 
a pastor. 

The population of the town in 1870 wa,8 1,766, and the area, 
,19,701 acres.

8HAItOJ!f, named from Sharon, Connecticut, was formed 
from Schoharie, March 17, 1797, as Borlaxh. Its name was 
lubsequently changed. Seward wastaken off in 1840. It is 
the north-west corner town of the County. The surface is a 
rolling and hilly upland. The highest summits in jhe. south- 
west corner are about 500 feet above the valleys. Westkill is 
the principal stream and flows south thtough the west part. 
The soil is a gravelly loam. Hops are raised to a considerable 
extent. The underlying limestone contains numerous caves. 

Sharon Springs, (p. v.) located a little north-west of the 
center of the town, is noted for its sulphur and chalybeate 
springs, which have a high reputation for the cure of cutaneous 
diseases. The hotel accommodations are increasing annually 
to meet the demands of the visiting community. The im- 
provements, added to the natural attractions 6f the place, 
render it unsurpassed in the number of its visitors, except by 
Saratoga. The Sharon & Cherry Valley Railroad passes within 
half a mile of the village, affording all needed facilities for 
transportation. It contains two churches, nine hotels, several 
stores and mechanic shops, and about 1,000 inhabitants. The 
springs are so strongly impregnated with sulphur that chips, 
leaves and pebbles, exposed to the action of the water for a short 
time, become coated with a thin whitish coat of sulphur. A 
short distance below the springs is a fine cascade. The view 


from the Pavilion is one of the finest in this region. It stands 
npon the summit of a hill, that oterlooks a landscape of rare 

Bqekville, about a third of a mile from Sharon Springs,^ con- 
tains two churches, two hotels, a store, a blacksmith shop^ two 
wagon shops, and about thirty dwellings. It is situated 
between the railroad station and tile Springs. 

Sharon Hill, (Sharon p. o.) situated about three miles from 
the Springs, contains a church, a school house, a hotel, a store, 
a blacksmith shop, an iron foundry and about 25 dwellings. 

Leesville, (p. v.) in the west part of the town, on the Sharon 
and Cherry Valley Eailroad, conjains two/ churches, a wagon 
shop, a blacksmith shop, a carpenter shop and about thirty 

dwellings. ' 

Sharon Oenter, (p. t.) about two miles east of RookTille,, con- 
tains a hotel, a blacksmith shop,.a wagon shop, a ch^se factory 
and about a dozen dwellings. 

Engellville, in the south-west part, contains a grist mill, a 
blacksinith shop and ten dwellings. 

Beekman^g Corners is a hamlet. 

Col. Calvin Kich, from New England,, is said to have been the 
first settler in this town. He was afterwards at Sack^ts Harbor 
as Colonel of drafted militia in Gen. Eichard Dodge's brigade. 
Calvin Pike, William Vanderwarker, Conrad Fritbhe, Abraham 
and John Mereness, John Malick and Peter Courment, were 
early settler? and; were obliged to flee to Schoharie or Fort 
Hunter for safety during the war. "William Beekman kept the 
first store; John Hutt built the first saW mill, and Omeo La- 
grange the first grist mill. The first tannery was built by 
Frederick & Crouck, and the first clothing works by John Hutt. 
The town conprises part qf Frederick Young's Patent of 20- 
000 acres, granted September 25, 1761 ; a tract of 8,000 acres, 
granted to Bradt and Livingston ; a tract of 7,000 acres, grant- 
ed to Johannes Lawyer, Jr., Jacob Borst and others, August 14, 
1761, and a, spiall part of the New Dorlach Patent. The first 
owners of Kew Dorlach latent were Michael and Johannes 
Jost, Jacob B. Borst, Johan Braun, Wm. BaucU, Michael Helt- 
zinger, Henrick Hanes, Johannes Shaflfer, Johannes and Jacob 
Lawyer, Christian Zeh, Mathias Beftumann, Lambert Sternberg, 
■I^^^ J^eyser and Pfeter Nicholas Sommer. The patent pro- 
vided that any differences that might arise were to be settled by 
arbitration. "' 


On the 9tli of SviHj 1781, a party of Tories and Indians, com- 
poaedjnostly of Indians, under the command of a Tory named 
Doxtader, entered a small settlement in the present -town of 
Boot, known as Ourrytovn, plundered and burnt all the build- 
ings except one which belonged to a Tory, murdered some of 
the inhabitants, and taking others prisoners^ departed. They 
encamped that night about two miles east of Sharon Springs, on 
the north side of the present line of the Western Tttrupike. 
The enemy numbered about 500, and encamped on the highest 
grounds in a cedar swamp. A party numbering about 260, 
under command of Col. Willett, started in puiBuit and arrived 
in the yicihity of their camp about daylight. A little south of 
the road is a ridge of land, and just beyond this, a little valley. 
By a circuitous route, Col. Willett reached JIhis- Ibw land, haviii^ 
i^e ridge between him and the enemy, and drew up his men in 
a crescent. He then sent a few of his men over the ridge to 
fire on the enemy and retreat, hoping by that means to draw 
the enemy .within his power ana thua defeat them, though 
their number was nfearly double that bf his own. The plan 
succeeded admintbly. The enemy, immediately snatching thdr 
weapons, pursued the attaeking party until within easy range 
of the main force, when a hotly contested battle took place. 
Both parties fought in Indian style, from beljind stumps and 
trees, continuing the combat for about two hours, when the 
enemy retreated, hotly pursued by Col. Willett, who jouted 
them so completely that most of the camp equipage and the 
plunder taken the day before fell into his hands. The enemy, 
not wishing to be fetardedin their flight by prisoners, murdered 
and scalped most of them, that they ihight not lose everything. 
Jacob bievendorf, who was then a lad, while attempting to 
escape, was knocked down and scalped. He recovered, lived to 
a good old age and becaihe one of the wealthiest fiirmers in the 
town of Boot In this engagement Col. Willett lost five men 
killed and eiiriltt woundted, two mortally. Atnoog ihe latter 
was Captain Bob'ert McKean, who died me next day. He was a 
brave and meritorious ofiBcer. The loss of the enemy was very 
severe, probably amounting to near fifty. One of their wounded 
was carried on a blanket, between two polea, to the Genesee 
Valley, where he died. Most ot the cattle, being abandoned by 
their captors, fbtindthei!r Way back to ther former pastures. A 
few other depre&tioiiti) were committed by small parties of 
savages Who retutti^ to the settlements. 

The first church organized in the town was Saint John's 
EimngeUtitl Lutheran, about 1776, by Bev. Petel: N. Sommer.

, SUMMIT was formed from Jefferson and Cobleskill, 
April 13, 1819. It is the sout^-west corner town of the County, , 
lying principally on the west border. The surface is a broken'" 
'and hilly upland. The central ridge forms a portion of the 
watershed between the Susquehanna and Mohawk Eiverg, the 
highest summits being from 2,000 to 2,300 feet above tide. 
Chartotte Eiver, the principal stream, flows south-wegt, through 
the west part. The soil is a gravelly and clayey loam. Most of 
the land is arable and the people are engaged in dairying and 
hop raising. Qther products are raised for home consumption. \i 
Near the village of Summit is a beautiful lake, about half a 
mile in length. It is supplied entirely bj. springs, and covers' 
about seventy-five acres. ; . 


Summit, (j^ V.) situated on the high ridge near the center of 
the town, contains two churches, viz., Methodist and Baptist; 
two hotels, three stores, two cooper shops, a wagon and under- 
taker shop, two boot and shoe shops, a milliner shop, a grist mill, 
a school house and thirty-two dwellings. 

Lutheranville, in the west part, contains a Lutheran church 
and half a dozen dwellings. It has been called Tar Hollow, 
from the circumstance that during the anti-rent troubles, the 
Sheriff was treated to a coat of tar and feathers. >7

cabinet and undertaker shop, a wagon shop, a grist mill, two 
saw mills, two shoe shops, a tin shop, a harness shop and thirty- 
two dwellings. A woolen mill was burned about a year ago. 
Since the construction of the Albany & Susquehanna Railroad, 
Oharlotteville has been less flourishing than formerly. 

The New York Conference Seminary and Collegiate Institute, 
located at this place, was established in 1851. Rev. Alonzo Flack 
was the first principal. The building was burned in 1867, and 
the present structure, formerly used as a hotel, was purchased 
and fitted up for the school. The course of study embraces all 
the branches usually taught in flrsf-class academies. Rev. 
Solomon Sias is the present principal, assisted by six associates.

resolutions passed were the following : 

"Besohed, That hogs shall not be free commoners unless yoked tod 
ringed." > 

Sheep were not allowed to be " free commoners," and rams 
were forfeited if allowed to run at large between the 1st day of 
September, and the 1st day of December. A bounty of five 
dollars was voted for every grown wolf killed in the town by a 
resident of the town. In 1832, twenty dollars were raised for 
the support of the poor. In 1826, the town appears to have 
placed a high estimate upon the services of sbhool inspectors, 
allowing them the enormous sum of twenty-five cents a day for 
their services.

part, on the east border of ^he County. The surface is a hilly 
upland. The highest summits along the south line are from 600 
to 800 feet above the valleys. Fox Creek is the principal stream 
and flows in a north-westerly course through the center. The

tains a store, a hotel, a saw mill, a grist mill and about a dozen 

Waldenvitte, in the south-east part, is a hamlet containing a 
store and a glove factory. 

The first settlement was made by Jacob Zimmer, near Gallup- 
ville, previous to the Revolution. Johannes Becker settled 
about two miles from Gallupville, on the creek. He had five 
sons living with him or near him during the Revolution. 
Frederick Denning, John Nashold, Frederick Seller, Christo- 
pher Shoefelt, John Hilsley and a man named Shaffer, were 
other early settlers. Jacob Zimmer kept the first inn, John 
and Henry Becker, the first store. Jacab Zimmer built the

On the morning of JuTy 36th, 1782, a band of Tories and 
Indians under Caplain Adam Orysler, made their appearance 


in the valley of Fox Creek. They first proceeded to the house 
of Jacob Zimmer, who, with his son Peter, was absent. They 
murdered and scalped Jacob, Jr., set fire to the house and barn 
after taking what plunder they could carry, and proceeded 
towards Becker's. Soon after leaving the house, they met 
Peter Zimmer, whom they made prisoner, and killed and 
scalped a Hessian who had deserted from the British. Major 
Joseph Becker lived in a stone house on the bank of the creek; 
his three brothers Jacob, John and William were in the field, 
Jacob and William hoeing, and John cutting brush at a short 
distance from them. The two former discovered the Indians 
and started for the house, pursued by the enemy. Though 
they did not succeed in that, they eluded the Indians and thus 
escaped death or captivity. They were not fired upon, doubtless 
through fear of alarming the Major, whom they hoped to cap- 
ture. The enemy were discovered in time for those near the 
house to take refuge in it and secure the doors and windows. 
The inmates of the house, when the siege commenced, con- 
sisted of Major Becker, John Hutts and George Shell, besides 
several women and children. The windows werfe protected by 
thick plank, except the upper portion. Each was stationed at 
a window to fife upon the enemy as chance might be offered, 
the Indians meantime, by their shots, rendering it extremely 
hazardous for any one to approach in sight. After continuing 
the attack for some time, the Indians attempted to set fire to 
the house, the only conibustible portiom of which was the roof 
and a wooden spout extending from the eaves to within three 
or four feet of the ground. Placing a wheelbarrow loaded with 
combustibles under the spout, they set it on fire. As the 
flames began^ to ascend towards the roof, Major Becker suc- 
ceeded in removing some shingles near . the eaves, and through 
the aperture thus made extinguished the fire. The Indians 
continued to renew their efforts until the spout was burned 
beyond their reach, when they gave it up. While a part of the 
enemy was firing at the windows. Shell discovered one skulking 
along the bank of the creek with a fire brand with which to 
set the mill on fire. Watching his opportunity, he sent a 
bullet through him. After several hours the siege was raised. 
The firing was not heard at the Lower Fort, though only three 
miles distant, but was heard at the Middle Fort, twice that 
distance. Though the news of the attack was carried to the 
Fort by some who fled from the immediate vicinity, and a 
party started out. under Lieut. Snyder, they did not arrive 
until the enemy had left. Johu Snyder was captured by OryS- 
ler's party, and the next day, in the town of Oobleskill, George 
Warner, Jr„ was captured. The party than started for the 


• ^ ^^ 

:Susquehanna, thence to Niagara. The second day after leaving 
Cobleskill they were obliged to subsist on horse flesh, without 
bread or seasoning of any kind. On the way they were sup- 
plied with deer, wolf, rattlesnake and hen-hawk, but without 
bread or salt. The Indians seldom harmed a rattlesnake unless 
it was killed for food. The prisoners suffered the usual hard- 
ships and were compelled to run the gaumtlet on arriving at 
the Indian villages. 

The Lutheran Church of Gallupville was organized in 1852

Xbe Bnckeye IHoivlng and 
Reaping macblnes— When the great 
U. S. Triarof Mowers and Reapers washeld 
at Syracuse in 1857, this admirable machine, 
which had just been brought oat, surprised 
everybody by Its novelty and many excel- 
lencies, and won the highest awards. At 
that time the valuable patents under which 
It was built were secured for several States 
by the enterprising firm which now con- 
tlnaes its manufacture, Adriance, Piatt & 
Co. At the second great trial of Mowers 
and Reapers^ made by the N. Y. State Agri- 
cnltnral Society in 1866, the Buckeye again 
carried off the highest honors, showing 
that in the years Interrenlng it had not 

tone baclrward in the race for superiority. 
Ivery new suggestion is thoroughh^ 
weighed, improvementt only are adopted. 
The verdict of the people Is nearly as unani- 
mous as that of the learned and practical 
committees who made these awards, for its 
sales far exceed those of any other ma- 
chine in the sections supplied by Adriance, 
Piatt & Co. In fact they tncrease so fast, 
that the demand is almost ^ways in ex- 
cess of the supply. The Self-Raking At- 
tachment on the Bnckeye Machine has met 
with a success corresponding to that of the 
Mower, and has surpassed all others in the 
perfection of its operation. One great 
secret of the success of Adriance, Piatt & 
Co., as manufacturers, has been In the con- 
scientious manner in which they have 
built their machines, and the great dnra- 
blllty of the Buckeye machine has been 
largely due to the excellence of the mate- 
rial used and the mechanical perfection of 
the workmanship. See advertisement on

Scbobarle Academr.— This insti- 
tntion, now ably conducted by Prof. Oren 
C. Sikes, as Principal, assisted by tbe most 
competent ability that can be procured, af- 
fords valuable educational advantages, not 
only to the surrounding country, but to 
those elsewhere who may desire to attend 
such a school. Its location, in the village 
of Schoharie, N. Y., can scarcely be sur- 
passed by any other in the State. Its ease 
of access, it being thtrty-flve miles from 
Albany, on the Susquehanna Railroad ; its 
quiet retirement, at a convenient distance 
from the city ; its situation, in the midst of 
the beautiful Schoharie Valley, so widely 
noted for its fine mountain scenery and ex- 
tremely healthfhl climate, and also for Its 
surpassing advantages of minerals and fos- 
sils for the study of Geology, render it pre- 
eminently a desirable place for such a 
school. There is an English Department, 
including the primary as well as the higher 
branches of study, and a Classical Depart- 
ment, embracmg the usual cdurse of prepa- 
ration for College. Modern Languages, 
Music and other ornamental branches, are 
provided for, the most thorough instructors 
being etnployed. All is constantly under 
the direct supervision of the Principal, and 
no effort wilf be spared to render this in- 
stitution fully equal to the best schools of 
its class, securing to all its pupils a thorough 
education, as far as they may go, through a 
careful discipline of the mind, aiming 
rather at the full development of the rea- 
soning faculties, than a mere cultivation of 
the memory. See advertisement on page

Harder manufactures the celebrated Gold 
Medal Threshing Machine, a cut of which 
may be seen in the advertisement. This 
Machine was awarded a Gold Medal, at the 
great National Implement Trial, at Auburn, 
in July 1886, and wherever introduced, is 
becoming more and more popular. Indeed 
so fast does the demand for tneee Machines 
increase, that although 25 hands are now 
employed In their construction, turning out 
about $50,000 worth annually, their facili- 
ties are entirely inadequate to supply the 
demand, and Mr. Harder is about to erect 
new works to facilitate their construction. 
Harder's Premium Railway Horse Power, 
which also received a Gold Medal at the 
National Implement Trial, mentioned 
above,' and received the highest commenda- 
tion by the Committee, are manufactured 
here. Mr. Harder also manufactures Fan- 
ning Mills, Wood Saws, Seed Sowers and

should consult a physician, herself a woman and conversant with all the improvements

of scientific care, and is one of which American women are ven; ignorant. Mrs. BUH-
