2. Each Ward of the City shall be entitled to elect one person to be 
denominated the Alderman of the Ward, and the persons so chosen, together

the second Tuesday in May thereafter ; and all the provisions of law now 
in force in regard to the notification, duration, and conduct of elections for 
Members of Assembly, and in regard to the appointment, powers, and 
duties of the inspectors, holding the same, shall apply to the annual election 
of Charter Officers. 

5. The first election for Charter Officers, after the passage of this law, 
shall take place on the second Tuesday in April, one thousand eiizht hundred 
and thirty-one ; and all those persons who shall have been elected under the 
former laws regulating the election of Charter Officers, and shall be in 
office at the time of the passage of this law, shall continue in office until the 
offii:ers elected imder this law shall be entitled to be sworn into office. 

6. The Board of Aldermen shall have power to direct a special election 
to be held, to supply the place of an Alderman whose seat shall become 
vacant by death, removal from the Citv. resignation, or otherwise; and tlie 



28 

Board of Assistants shall also have power to direct a special election to 
supply any vacancy that may occur in the Board of Assistants ; and in both 
cases, the person elected to snpplv the vacancy shall hold his seat only for 
the residue of the term of office of his immediate predecessor. 

7. The Boards shall meet in separate chambers, and a majority of each 
shall be a quorum to do business. Each Board shall appoint a President 
from its own body, and shall also choose its Clerk and other officers, de- 
termine the rules of its own proceedings, and be the judg-e of the qualifications 
of its own members. Each Board shall keep a journal of its proceedings, 
and the doors of each shall be kept open, except when the puHic welfare 
shall require secrecy; and all resolutions and reports of Committees which 
shall recommend any specific improvement involving the appropriation of pub- 
lic moneys, or taxing or assessing the citizens of said city, shall be published

right and powers as an Alderman or Assistant Alderman- 

9. The stated and occasional meetings of each Board of the Common

meet on the same or on different days, as they may severally judge ex- 
pedient. 

10. Any law, ordinance, or resolution of the Common Council may ori- 
ginate in either Board, and when it shall have passed one Board, may be 
rejected or amended by the other 

11. No member of either Board shall, during the period for which he was 
elected, be appointed to, or be competent to hold any office of which the 
emoluments are paid from the City treasury, or by fees, directed to be paid 
by any ordinance or act of the Common Council, or be directly or indirectly 
interested in any comract, the expenses or considerations whereof are to be 
paid under any ordinance of the Common Council; but this section shall 
not be construed to deprive any Alderman or Assistant of any emolument 
or fees which he is entitled to by virtue of his office. 

12. Every act, ordinance or resolution, which shall have passed the two 
Boards of the Common Council, before it shall take effect shall be present- 
ed, duly certified, to the Mayor of the City, for his approbation. If he ap- 
prove, he shall sign it ; if not, he shall return it with his ob'ections to the 
Board in which it originated, within ten days thereafter; or if such Board 
be not then in session, at its next stated meeting. The Board to which it 
shall be returned, shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and 
cause the same to be published in one or more of the public newspapers ot 
the Citv. 

13. The Board to which such act, ordinance, or resolution, has been so 
returned, shall, after the expiration of not less than ten days thereafter, 
proceed to reconsider the same. If after such reconsideration, a majority 
of the members elected to the Board shall agree to pass the same, it shall 
be sent, together with the objections, to the other Board, by which it shall 
be likewise reconsidered ; "^nd if approved by a majority of all the mem- 
bers elected to such Board, it shall take effect as an act or law of the Cor- 
poration. In all such cases the votes of both Boards shall be determined 
by ayes and noes, and the names of the persons votin;^ for and against the 
passng:!' of the measure reconsidered, shall be entered on the journal of 
each Board respcctiv.dv. 



29

sented to him, within the time above limited for that purpose, it shall take 
effect in the same manner as if he had signed it. 

15 Neither the Mayor nor Recorder of the City of New- York shall be a 
member of the Common Council thereof, after the second Tuesday of May,

FIRE DEPARTMENT FUND. 

TRUSTEES REPORT FOR 1848. 

In accordance with the invariable custom of the Department, the Board 
of Trustees have the honor to submit herewith th^Mr Report fur the past 
year. Previous to entering into an exposition of their labors, during tiie 
period named, they woiild^espcctfiiily call your attention to the Annual 
st itoment of the Trensun^- ol tlie Oep.\rtnifnt. wiiichis hereunto annexed, 
and which embraces in detail ils dillerent sources of revenue, and exliibils 
also 11 clear and succinct account of the amount expended in support ot the 
various object.s named therein, and by which \"U will discern at a i;l;uice, 
how, and iu what manner, the monies'of the Department are nppropriatrd. 
Yon will perceive also, that the Firemen's H.dl Committee, last yt^ar, reuli- 
zed from the Ball given at the I'.irk Theatre, a miicli larger sum tnan at any 
former period, and it is hoped that their spirited e.\eriions this J ear may 
meet with a corresponding de^Tee of success.

The Treasurer reports, that there was remaining in his hands, last year, 
a balance of one thousand two hundred and seventy-nine dollars and eighty- 
seven cent-i. since which time he has received from various sources, ten 
thousand five hundred and seventy-nine dollars and thirty-three cents, which, 
in the aggregate, amounts to eleven thousand eight hundred and fifty nine 
dollars and twenty cents ; out of which there has been distributed in widows' 
pensions and various deeds of charity to claimants upon the Department, 
the sum of nine thousand three hundred and twenty-nine dollars and six 
cents, and two thousand dollars invested on liond and mortgage for the 
benefit of the widow and orphans of ihe late George Kerr, leaving a bal- 
ance in the Butchers' and Drovers' Bank, to the credit of the Department, 
of five hun ired and thirty dollars and fourteen cents. The Permanent 
Fund ol the Department now amounts to thiity-nine thousand two hundred 
and fifteen dollars and twenty-five cents, which is invested as follows, viz.: 
Loaned on bond and mortgage, thirty-eight thousand nine hundred and sixty- 
five dollars and twentv-five cents, and two hundred and fifty dollars in Man- 
hattan Bank Stock. In the Permanent Fund are invested for the benefit of 
the widow and orphans of David Rayraar, six hundred and thirty-five dol- 
lars ; for the widow and orphans of James S. Wells, one thousand dollars; 
and for the widow and orphans of George Kerr, two thousand dollars, 
which amounts have been subscribed by benevolent individuals, associa- 
tions, and the Common Council of this city, for their exclusive benefit during 
their widowhood and minority of the children, but eventually reverts to the 
Permanent Fund of the Department. At present the Trustees pay to them 
the interest, at the rate of seven per centum per annum, which amounts de- 
ducted, leaves the actual Fund of the Department thirty five thousand five 
hundred and eighty dollars and twenty-five cents. 

For the intbrm.ation of those Representatives who have recently entered 
the Department, and to those generous friends who sustain our Charitable 
Institution, and who are unacquainted with the manner in which its charities 
are dispensed, the Trustees beg leave to state, that there are nine Members 
composing the Board of Trustees ; they divide themselves into Committee-s, 
the duties of each being defined by certain regulations, for coUeciing dona- 
tions, purchasing wood, shoes, and coal, and in superintending the children 
of Firemen attending the Public fr^chools. &c., &c. ; and in order to render 
speedy relief to the indigent and the distressed, they have divided the city 
into districts, one Trustee being assigned to each district. 

In this manner the most i-.mple means are afTorded to those seeking 
relief; the sick and needy Fireman is proniptly cared for, and should he de- 
part this life, his remains are decently interred at the expense of the Depart- 
ment, and his widow and children share in that benevolence which it is the 
peculiar atlribuie of this lustitution to impart. 

The Trustees regret to state, that for three past years they have not only 
been unable to add anything to the Permanent Fund, but have experienced 
great dilficulty in raising sufficient money to meet their actual and neces- 
sary expenditures. This has arisen Irom a variety of causes, and among 
them are the following, viz : the great and increasing demands made upon 
them for assistance — the small amount collected from Chimney and Gun- 
powder Fines, and for penihies tor volaling the Fire-Laws, in relation to 
the erection of unsafe buildings; thedutyof Fire Warden, as nowpeiformed 
by the Star Police, being, to all intents and purposes, a dead letter. These 
several items at one lime brought into the Treasury of the Department a 
considerable revenue; and in addiiion to the circumstances stated, the City 
Fire Insurance Companies, owing to the heavy losses they have met with, 
have been unable to contribute as liberally as upon former occasions ; while 
the Fijreign Insurance Agencies, (with the commendable exception of the 
Merchants' Insurance Company of Boston, and the Norwich, and JEraa. In- 



112 

surance Compa^iies,) doing an immense business here, and deriving an enor- 
mous revenue therefrom, have not contributed a dollar in aid of our fund, 
although applied to and appealed to; and yet they pay nothing in support of 
the City, and but a small lax to the -State Government, and at the some 
time share in the full and ample protection rendered by the Fire Department. 
Another cause of the increased number of applications for relief from our 
Fund, arises from the great increase in the extent of the City, with its im- 
mense population, requiring extra facilities for the extinguishment of Fires, 
thereby inducing a corresponding increase in the number of the members of 
the Department, which from being composed at one time of only five or six 
hundred, is now managed by nearly two thousand. The increase in the 
number of Firemen did'not at first seem to affect materially the Funds, but 
as the term of service of this large body of men expired at different intervals, 
the result of this accession of force has been gradually developing itself for 
some years past in the accumulated demands made upon our treasury. Indeed, 
it could hardly be expected otherwise, than that out of so large a body there 
would be many not only in indigent circumstances upon leaving, but that they 
would retire with shattered and broken constitutions, induced in the service of 
the City. A premature grave awaited many upon leaving, who entered the 
Department in the full strength of manhood, with bright hopes of the future, 
alas I never to be realized ; they have passed away from existence, and have 
bequeathed to the protection of their friends and associates in the Department, 
widows and orphan children, of whom nine hundred of the latter, and nearly 
three hundred of the former, claim your aid and sympathy. 

And yet, notwithstanding the services and sacrifices of the members of 
the Fire Department in protecting life and property in this great city, dis- 
tinguished for its wealth and resources, we regret to announce that our 
institution languishes for want of adequate means of support. There are, 
however, many oF our benevolent citizens who have generously aided us 
in sustaining our charity, and to whom the Trustees award the highest meed 
of praise. Tliey beg leave to state also, that no officer of the Fire Depart- 
ment Fund receives any emolument or compensaiion whatever for his ser- 
vices — the duty is performed voluntarily by the Trustees, and is at times 
very onerous and painful, but it is discharged with cheertulness. Our 
charities are dispensed without pretension— our funds are not wasted in idle 
dissipation, or lavishly bestowed in getting up annual dinners— nor speeches 
made and toasts drar.k to win applause or to* remind our citizens of the ex- 
istence of our institution. It is a plain and sub.^lantial charity, faithfully 
administered, in behalf of the obiects contemplated by its establishment, 
■without any parade or graml .»ihows. and relict is judiciously given when 
most needed and where most required. The Trustees deem it their duty 
to make these representations without intending to reflect in any manner 
upon kindred institutions, founded upon just principles of benevolence, or 
upon the well known i;enerosityof our citizens; butlromthe present critical 
conflition of the finances of the Department, they are compelled to state, 
that unless verv unusual exertions are made by its friends and members 
to raise funds, the Trustees will necessarily be compelled to reduce the 
small pittance which is given to tJie aged widows and helpless orphan chil- 
dren who depend upon them for assistance. 

Indeed, fears are now and have been entertained for some time past, that 
unless active measi;res are taken to devise means other than those now 
adopted for raising money, the Trustees will be compelK d, however reluc- 
tantly, to break in upon the Permanent Fund. Ajipreliensive of a result at 
once so ruinous to the fund, and to the comfort and happiness of those who 
share in its benefits, they called a special meeting of the Board in July last, 
and appointed a committee to confer with a similar one from the representa- 
tives lur the adojitioii of some plan for increasing the rt sources of the De- 



113 

partment. No report has as yet been made, the subject being still under 
consideration : but from the high characier of the gentlemen composting the 
committees, the Trustees feel confident ihat important sngs- stions will be 
made; and which, when adopted, they hope may remedy the matler com- 
plained of and enablo the Deparlmint to continue its present expansive 
scheme of benevolence, without resorting to the painful alternative of break- 
ing up the Permanent Fund, or of diminishing the cratellil aid extended to 
the sick, the dying, and the dead fireman, his unlbrtunate widow and orphan 
children. 

Nothing further has transpired since the last report, touching the suit of 
the heirs of Jeremiah B. Taylor. It is still undecided. The terms of ser- 
vice of John Coger. Jr., James Pryer, and Henry A. Burr, will expire at the 
annual meeting; it will be necessary, thereftTe, to elect three Trustees 
to serve for ihree years each. Mr. Burr was elected at the lust meeting of 
the representaiives to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of J. 
W. Ellsworth, Esq. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

By order of the Board of Trustees. 
(Signed) JAMES KELLY, Secretary.

when the Council appointed Jacob RadclifT, Ksq., in his place. Mr. Ferguson held 
the Naval Olfice to the lime of his death, in September, 1832. There being no minutes

Nursery Buildings on Kandal's Island. 

The Nursery Establishment, or Juvenile Department of the New- York 
Alms House, is located on Randal's Island, which lies in the East River, at 
the mouth of the Harlem River, about eight miles from the City Hall. The 
buildings of this establishment, twelve in number, are plain and substantial, 
designed more expressly for use than for show. Five of the buildings are 
situated irregularly yet symmetrically on a line at intervals of one hundred 
feet, forming the front of the group, and having a southeasterly aspect ; 
these five, together with two standing ?60 feet in advance, at the extreme 
right and left, and an eighth, located eighty feet in the rear of the centre 
one, constitute the Nursery proper — the remaining four buildings, grouped 
centrally in the rear of the front line at about four hundred feet distance 
form the Nursery Hospital. The whole is enclosed by a neat picket fence in 
a plot of ground eight hundred by twelve hundred feet, with the sides at 
right angles to the front line of buildings. The buildings are pleasantly lo- 
cated at about the centre of the Island, at an elevation of thirty feet above 
tide-water, the ground in front sloping to the water at a gentle inclination 
in a southeasterly direction, aflbrding a view of Flushing Bay, the inter- 
vening islands and adjacent country — one of the finest pro.spects in the vi- 
cinitv of New-York. ^ 

Of the eight buildings forming the Nursery Proper, the centre one in front 
is devoted to the Schools and Superintendent's residence. The one imme- 
diately in the rear of this is the kitchen, and the remaining six are dwellings 
for the children. The School-house, 45 by 105 feet, is constructed of blue 
building-stone in a superior style of rubble masonry ; but all the other build- 
ings are of brick, and painted of a color resembling blue stone. In the 
basement of the School-house is the Steward's ofiice, the private kiichen of 
the Superintendent and various store rooms. In the principal story is the 
Primary School, 41 by 53 feet, and 1 4 feet high, entered by the children at 



220 

the rear of the building, one step only above the ground ; here is also, in front, 
the Superintendent's apartments, comprising his office and rooms for his 
family. The floor of these apartments, in tront, is elevated three feet above 
that of the Primary School, being on a level with the teacher's platform, 
and upon this visitors are received from the hall which connects the school- 
room with the Superintendent's office- In the second story is the boys' 
school-room, 41 by 70 feet, and 17 feet high; this room is entered by the 
children at the rear, and by visitors from the front. Immediately in front 
of this room are six apartments occupied by the teachers, chaplain and 
others; three of these rooms are obtained by introducing a tioor at mid-hight 
of the story, producing a mezzanine or middle story — as also at the rear of 
the boys' school-room, where a sewing room is located over two recita- 
tion-room's. The attic of this building, one room, 41 by 101 feet, is occupied 
as a dormitorv by the female paupers, who serve the Institution as cooks, 
&c. The floor of this room is supported by the framing of the roof, leaving 
the fine school-room below quite unobstructed, as it otherwise would be, 
by columns and girders. The ventilating apparatus for the school-room is 
at once simple, neat and efficacious; this consists of two series of flues in- 
cluded within the thickness of the external walls, one series for the admis- 
sion of cold air from a reservoir in the cellar, the other for the escape of 
vitiated air at the roof— the entrance to both from the rooms being protected 
by metallic plates perforated with numerous and small apertures ; the re- 
servoirs for pure air in the cellar are supplied by flues reaching to the top 
of the building. The building is comfortably warmed by two hot-air fur- 
naces. The school-rooms are fitted with desks and other furniture, which 
are equal if not superior in point of neatness of finish and utility to those of 
any other school in the county, and which reflect the highest credit on the 
New- York Public School Society, at whose expense and under whose di- 
rection they were furnished. 

Of the four other buildings on the front hne, the two next adjacent ones, 
north and south, are each 33 by 96 feet, and three stories high, having ve- 
randahs eia-ht feet wide on both sides of each story. The southerly one of 
these two buildings is occupied by the larger boys of the establishment, the 
other by the girls aird smaller boys; they,,are precisely alike in their con- 
fetruction, the first story containing a dining-room, 31 by 70 feet, and ten feet 
hio'h, a room for washing hands and bathing, and a kitchen for the Matron or 
Steward. Beneath this is a cellar for the hot-air furnace and fuel. In the se- 
cond story is a dormitory, 31 bv 70 feet, and eleven feet high, and two apart- 
ments for the officers of the institution. The third story is in one open room, 
a dormitory 31 by 94 feet, and eleven feet high. These buildings are venti- 
lated and warmed in the same manner as the school-house. The apparatus 
for bathing and washing hands in the first story is original and complete ; a 
circular tub, ten feet in diameter, is supplied with water, cold and warm at 
pleasure, and is thus used for bathing by a dozen of the children at once. 
Thev use the same tub for washing their hands and face ; a leaden pipe 
coile'd on the inside just below the top being perforated with apertures which 
discharge the water toward the centre of the tub, the children standing 
around, twenty or more at once, wash their faces with the water they catch 
in their hands as it flows from the pipe, thus dispensing with washbowls, an 
infinite source of trouble and vexation in large public institutions. And what 
is of more vital importance, no two are permitted to wash in the same wa- 
ter or even one to use the same water twice, which cannot be avoided by 
the old plan, to the great risk of the children's infecting each other with the 
ophthalmia, a dreadful scourge, which has destroyed the happuiess and use- 
fulness of so many children in former years at this and similar institutions. 
For this convenient and complete arrangement the institution is indebted to 



221 

tbe experience and ingenuity of Lmus W. Stevens, Esq., one of the gen- 
tlemen of the Building Committee, late President of the Board of Assistant 
Aldermen, and at the present time the Alderman of the Fifteenth Ward. 

The two remaining buildings on the front line are similar in arrangement 
to the two just described, but they are of a smaller size, 33 by 55 feet each ; 
the stories, however, are of the same height respectively as those of the 
other two. The most southerly of these two buildings is termed the Qua- 
rantine or Reception House ; tlie other, which is the most northerly of the 
front line, is the Infants' House. 

The two buildings in advance of those just described, are each 35 by 100 
feet, two stories high. The southerly one is occupied by the larger beys, 
and the other by the girls and small boys. These two buildings were erected 
since tlio original ten, as a relief for the two dwellings next adjacent to the 
centre building ; these latter two having been found insufficient to accommo- 
date the large number of children of this class. The two newer buildings 
are nearly alike in their internal arrangement, each having in the first story a 
living room 33 by 77 feet, 12 feet high, and a dormitory in the second story of 
33 by 73 feet, 11 feet high, and at the westerly end small apartments for the 
officers. A sewing room 17 by 33 feet, with wardrobes attached, occupies 
the westerly end of the first story of the northerly building, and a bathing tub 
n feet diameter, .similar to those in the other dwellings, occupies the west- 
erly end of the first story of the southerly building, and this building has a 
cellar for stores, 32 by 97 feet, 7 feet hig-h. 

The eighth building, situated 80 feet in the rear of the School House or 
centre building, is 30 by 60 feet and two stories high. This building is 
devoted to cooking, washing and ironing, on the first floor, and the second 
floor is used for a tailors' shop, and dormitory for adult male paupers — ser- 
vants and boatmen. The floor of the first story is of stone flagging, and the 
three apartments in this story are entirely separated by brick walls. The 
appara*us for cooking and heating water for washing and scrubbing has at- 
tached to it nine kettles, six in one room and three in another, each 2| feet 
diameter, and is all heated by one fire. This improved steam apparatus is 
the invention of Mr. Hatfield, the Arcliitect of the buildings, and A. S. Bo wen, 
Machinist. The advantages of this over other steam apparatuses forboiling, 
consist in the avoidance of a peculiar clattering racket — a very offensive noise 
incidental to the old method, and in the greater degree of heat produced ; the 
inefficiency of the old plan to cook Indian meal mush thoroughly is fully 
overcome here by the superior amount of heat produced, which is quite suf- 
ficient not only for this purpose, but for roasting meat in the kettles. These 
kettles are conveniently arranged with pipes, to supply and discharge each 
at pleasure ; and the waste steam from the cooking is not permitted to es- 
cape from the kettles into the room, but is conducted by copper pipes to the 
chimney. The wash room is fitted with a series of wash troughs, supplied 
and emptied at pleasure by leaden pipes. 

The four remaining buildings compose the Hospital department of the es- 
tablishment ; they consist of two large Hospitals, one smaller building for a 
kitchen, and one for idiots. The two hospitals stand in front, 125 feet apart, 
and the kitchen is placed in the rear between these; the idiots' dwelling 
being still farther in the rear of the kitchen. The hospital kitchen is 25 by 
eofeet, and two stories high, arranged and fitted with cooking and washing ap- 
paratus of the same description as in the larger kitchen above referred to, but of 
smaller capacity. The two hospitals are precisely alike, being each 36 by 60 
feet, and three stories high, having verandahs 8 feet wide on both sides of each 
story inclosed with glass. In each of the two lower stories there are two 
wards or rooms 16| by 34 feet, opening at each end on the verandahs, and 
in the third story another ward, 24 by 34 feet., also opening on the verandahs. 
In the first story of one building is the physician's office, and in the other 
building the matron's kitchen ; there is also in each first story the same de- 



scription of bathing apparatus as in the children's dwelling, and in addition 
thereto, the ordinary bathing tub and apparatus. In the second story are 
apartments also for the accommodation of the physicians and nurses. These 
buildings are also warmed and ventilated as those before described. 

The twelfth building is termed the idiots' dwelling; it is 25 by 35 feet and 
two stories high, divided into two rooms on each floor, and with two flights 
of stairs, forming two distinct suits of apartments for males and females — 
the first story rooms being used as sitting-rooms, and the others as dormi- 
tories. 

The buildings are supplied with Croton water brought to the island by a 
large and heavy leaden pipe, laid below the bed of the Harlasm river ; and a 
complete system of sewerage connected with the buildings removes all 
waste water, surface water and filth from the several buildings and outhouses 
into the river. 

On the front of the school-house a marble tablet is thus lettered :

1847. 

The original ten buildings were commenced by breaking ground on the 
13th of August last, the corner stone laid on the 23d of September, and were 
completed and taken possession of by the children on the l~lh of April, hav- 
ing being constructed in the short space of eight months and a few days. 
The entire cost of the ten buildings, including that of the apparatus for cook- 
ing, ventilation and warming, and of the plumbing work for the Croton wa- 
ter, as also the cost of grading the grounds, was $74,648 09. The two 
newer dwellings, under the supervision and direction of the Joint Committee 
on Charity and Alms, and of R. G. Hatfield, the Architect, were commenced 
in October, 1848, and are now being finished in February, 1849, at a cost of 
about $9,700. The Common Councils who have erected these buildings, de- 
serve great credit for this judicious expenditure of the public money, and too 
much praise cannot be awarded to the gentlemen of the Building Committee.s 
for the assiduous attention and arduous labor which they have devoted to 
the work. 

Introduction of the Croton Water upon Randal's Island. 

The water is conveyed from the foot of One Hundred and Twenty-first- 
street across the Harlasm river to Randal's Island, in a leaden pipe. The 
river at this point is about 600 feet wide and 32 feet deep in the channel ; 
the bottom of the river was covered with boulders, and in one place a ledge 
of solid rock projected. A channel to receive the pipe was prepared, by re- 
moving the boulders and blastuig this pomt of solid rock, about 14 feet under 
water, and excavating from one to three feet below the regular bottom of 
the river. 



223 

The lead pipe is in the inside three inches in diameter and eighth-tenths 
of an inch thick, made in lengths of 20 feet, and put together with a soldered 
joint, the solder being covered with a coaling of lead tliree-fourths of an inch 
thick, .so that nothing but a surface of lead is exposed to the action of the 
salt-water. The pipes were put together on the New- York shore, and cased 
in a timbered box bolted and trunelied so as to prevent its being injured by- 
drawing across the bottom of the river. About 150 feet was prepared in the 
first instance, when it was proved with a forcing pump, wnder a pressure of 
300 pounds to the square inch ; this was then drawn into the river by power 
from the other side, when another 1-50 feet was in like manner prepared and 
drawn in, and so on, until it was passed across the river, and was then 
covered with coarse gravel ; the connection with the main pipe on both 
sides of the river are with brass reduce; s. Most of the work was of a new 
and novel character, and required a great deal of perseverance and patience 
to do it; the operation of the work has been entirely successful, and the sup- 
ply from it is sufficient for .5,000 persons, and washes off all offal and refuse 
from the Nursery Buildings, which passes into the sewer from them. 

The foregoing detail is given of the operations in effecting so important a 
result of furnishing an ample supply ofCroton water to one of the most 
interesting institutions to which the distribution of the charities of this city 
are bestowed. The Nurseries, as the establishment is called, the inmates of 
'which are children, left to the cold sympathies of the world, without friends 
or guardians ; from which cause they are the peculiar objects of the care and 
protection of the city fathers. The city authorities have liberally and kindly 
provided for their health, camfort, and moral improvement in said institution. 
Much credit is due to Mr. Peter Hastee, the Engineer, and Mr. Benj. M. 
Clarke, who had the special supervision of said work ; together with the 
Joint Committees on Charity and Alms; and to the Chairman of said Com- 
mittee. 
The Joint Committee on Charity and Alms are as follows:

Penitentiary Hospital, Blackwell's Island. 

Tn addition 'to many buildings already erected on this island, for public 
purposes, the Common Council has contracted for the erection of a building 
to be used ns an hospital for the penitentiary. It is to be built of the stone 
that is quarried on the island, by the prisoners. The main building is to be 
60 feet square and three stories high, with a basement and attic, with two 
wings each, to be 124 feet long and 50 feet wide, two stories high, with a base- 
ment, making in all 308 feet in length. The main buildmg is intended for 
the use of the officers of the hospital and the necessary offices, apothecary's 
shop, store-rooms, ifcc. ; the south east wing is to be occupied entirely by 
the female patients, and the west vvinir, on the first floor, for a male hospital, 
and on the second floor for a sewing room and general workshop for the fe- 
male prisoners ; the basement to be used for a wash-house and laundries for 
all the prisoners. Mr. Richard Calrow, Jr., is the contractor for the carpen- 
ter work, for the sum of $18,887, and Messrs. Samuel Strong and Bartlet 
Smith, for the mason work, for the sum of ^17,500. Mr. James L. Miller is 
the architect and superintendent ; the plans were executed by him and ap- 
proved by the Medical Board of Physicians, and the Joint Committee on 
Public Buildings on Blackwell's island, consisting of Aldermen Adams, 
Crolius, and Gray ; Assistant Aldermen Miller, Clark, and Sutton, who have 
the general supervision of the building.

The Free Academy is situated at the corner of Lexington Avenue and 
Twenty-third-street, on a plot of ground 122 feet 6 inches by 200 feet. The 
cost of the building, including the site, is $73,000, and its dimensions are 1SJ5 
feet by 80. It consists exclusive of the basement and great hall of three spa- 
cious stories, which are intersected by two inside passages, running at right 
angles through the middle of the building. It affords accommodation for 
about 1,000 scholars, and is in the style of the Gothic town halls of the Ne- 
therlands. 

The institution is under the direction of the Board of Education, and was 
established for the purpose of extendingthe benefits of education gratuitously 
to those who have been pupils in the public and ward schools.

The Institution may be considered as resolving itself into three depart- 
ments, viz. :— tiie Intellectual, the Domestic, and the Mechanical. 
The pupils are divided into eleven classes, under the instruction of as many 
professors and teachers. The object is to impart to the ininates of the es- 
tablishment a good English education, by means of which they may be re- 
stored to the condition of a social existence. 

In the domestic department there are an attending physician, a steward, a 
matron, and an assistant matron. The female pupils are under the immedi- 
ate charge of the matron, whose careful attention is bestowed as well upon 
the formation of their manners, as upon suitable provision for the promotion 
of their comfort and happiness. 

In the m chanical department a choice is oflered between five different 
occupations, viz. : — bookbinding, cabinet-making, tailoring, slioeTnaking, and 
gardening. The male pupils are employed in the intervals of study and re- 
Taxation, from three to four hours daily, at some one of those occupations, un- 
der the superintendence of skilful W'orlcmen. The female pupils in the mean 
time are employed in learning to fold and sew books, in tailoring, dress mak- 
ing, plain sewing, or in light household afiairs, with the proper management 
of which it is essential that they should become acquainted. 

The number of pupils is 220, of whom IfiO are supported by the state of 
New York; 16 by the Corporation of the city; 8 by the state of New-Jersey ; 
26 by their friends, and 10 by the Institution. 

The Institution has no permanent funds, except its investment in build- 
ings, but derives its income from state, county, and pay pupils, from dona- 
tions, subscriptions, and legacies. 

Those who wish to parti- late in the public provision made for the edu- 
cation of the indigent, ra'.i -ply to the Superintendent of Common Schools, 
accompanied by a certific, i. irom the Commissioner of the Alms House, or 
from the Overseers of the poor of the town in which they reside, and must 
be between the ages oi twelve and twenty five. 

The annual charge to those who support themselves is $130, which in- 
cludes all expenses of every description, except those for clothing and 
travelling. 

The time of admission is on the first Wednesday of September.

Newspapers of greater size than 1,900 square inches, and all pamphlets, 
magazines, and periodicals, 2^ cents for each copy of not more than one 
ounce weight, and one cent additional for each additional ounce, or fractional 
excess of not less than half an ounce, for any distance in the United States. 

Any manuscript commmilcation whatever, connected with a newspaper, 
pamphlet. &c., beyond the direction, makes the same liable to letter 
postage. 

All printed ok lithographed circulars and handbills, or advertisements, or 
quarto post, or single cap paper, or paper not larger than single cap folded, 
directed, and unsealed, 3 cents each, and must be prepaid, for any distance 
in the United States. 

There are about 40,000 letters passing through the hands of the clerks 
daily, toj| City delivery, those sent out and for distribution to all parts of the 
United States, each oii.e has to be stamped, bundled and mailed, and great 
care is required. 

We send out about 80,000 papers daily, each one handled and principally 
received from editors for distribution ; about 15,000 are also received for 
City delivery, and require to be boxed up or sent out by carriers. 

The people generally have but a small idea of the amount of labor per- 
formed in the Post Office; a letter has to go through many hands before it 
reaches its destination ; it frequently happens that letters" are misdirected, 
and the Post Office blamed if they are not received. 

We send about 20,000 dead Letters to the dead letter oflice at Washington 
each quarter ; those containing money and mailed here, are returned to the 
proper owners if found. 

Tlie Post Office is never closed; clerks commence duty at .5 A. M., the 
year round, and are on duty until 7 ; they are then relieved by the night 
clerks.

THE WALTON HOUSE, 

Pearl-street, New-York. 
[Taken from Volume IX. of the New-York Mirror.} 

"What citizen or stranger has ever passed through Franklin Square, in this 
city, without gazing with interest on an antiquated, large, three-story edifice, 
built in the English baronial style of the last century? It is called the 
" Walton House," because it was erected by an aristocratical Englishman 
of that name, nearly a century ago, and has ever since remained in the 
fiimily. The entrance hall is in the centre of the building, with large, old- 
fashioned parlors and drawing-rooms on each side. The portal is in fine 
iceeping with the style of architecture, which then distinguished the English 
patrician from the plebeians. The portico is supported by two fluted columns, 
and surm.)wnted with the armorial bearings of the Walton family richly 
carved and ornamented; but, like all insignia of nobility on this side the 
Atlantic, somewhat the worse for wear. Were we conversant with the 
technics of heraldry, these arms should be described ; but being totally igno- 
rant of the mysteries of that profound science, we are not competent to the 
task. The pride of ancestry is a kind of pride of which we know nothing, 
although we have read much; and so \ox\sr as we know that our grandfather 
did his duty in the revolutionary war, an eceived a certificate of approba- 
tion from Washington, we are not asham d of him, and feel quite indifferent 
whether he inherited "the blood of all the Howards," or whether one of his 
remote progenitors actually turned the spit which sustained the goose which 
fed the queen when she heard the news of her foe's defeat on Shrove Tues- 
day. 

The Walton House is now No. 326 Pearl-street, in the midst ofa most dense 
population ; but, when it was first erected, there was but one building on 
that side of the street, between Peck Slip and the commencement of Cherry- 
street. The diagonal junction of the latter with Pearl-street, then created 
an acute point of land, which now constitutes Franklin Square. At the 
period to which we allude, there were not half a dozen buildings in Pearl- 
street, north of Franklin Square. For many years afterward, that region, 
comprising at present the populous streets called Roosevelt, James, Oli- 
ver, Catherine, and Oak, together with Batavia-lane, was an impassable bog, 
denominated "Swamp Meadow," being almost wholly covered with stag-- 
nant water, holding communication with the Collect by a stream which 
crossed Chatham-street. 

That section of the city which is still called the " Swamp," extending from 
Beekman to Frankfort-street, was then literally a swamp, being a wet, boggy 
waste, covered with trees and bushes, where wild birds built their nests and 
laid their eggs, as they fondly thought, far from the invasion of wicked 
school-boys, who learned their ab, abs, somewhere in Broad-street. Here, 
also, did sportsmen resort for game; here did whole herds of swine, not then 
employed as city scavengers, earn their own living by rooting up roots and 
ground nuts: and here were luscious blackberries, far more plenty than 
satisfactory reasons for winding Pearl-street round the margin of this quag- 
mire. The natural course of Pearl-street from Peck Slip, is Cherry-street. 
But the whole city (modern improvements always excepted) is a labyrinth — 
a puzzle — n riddle — incomprehensible to philosophers of the present day. 

This family dwelling-house was, in its day — indeed, still i.s — a noble speci- 



332 

men ofEnglish architecture a century ago. It is a brick edifice, 50 feet in 
front, and tliree stories high, built with Holland bricks, relieved by brown stone 
water-tables, linteis, and jams, with walls as substantial as many modern 
churches, standing along the south side of Pearl street, formerly called 
Queen-street. The superb staircase in its ample hall, with its mahogany 
hand-rails and bannisters, by age as dark as ebony, would not disgrace a 
nobleman's palace. It is the only relic of the kind that probably at this 
period remains in the city, the appearance of which affords an air of grandeur 
not to be seen in the lighter staircases of modern buildings. 

This venerable mansion is one of the very few remaining in uninterrupted 
succession in the family of the original proprietor. It was erected in 1754, 
by William Walton, Esq., who lived and died a bachelor, and bequeathed 
by him to his nephew, the late Honorable William Walton, v/hose son, ad- 
vanced in years, now occupies the premises. The family of Walton, of 
English ancestry, is one of the most respectable of this city ; we know not 
whether allied to the Reverend Izaak Walton, oi angling memory, whose 
delectable treatise on the subject will be read and esteemed by amateurs of 
the rod, line, and hook, as long as waters flow and trout swim. The first 
William was distinguished by the appellation of Boss Walton, by way of 
pre-eniinence. The title is Dutch, and given even now by apprentices and 
subordinates to their principals and superiors. 

Boss Walton was a merchant, and resided in Hanover Square. He ac- 
quired an ample fortune by an advantageous contract with some Spaniards 
of St. Augustine, which enabled him to build by far the most expensive, ca- 
pacious, and elegant house at that period in New- York. When the found- 
ation was laid, his fellow-citizens all wondered that he should choose a site 
so far out oftotmi, it bein? i !<^n almost at the eastern extremity of tiie city, 
but at the present time ii ' .onsiderably west of the centre, between the 
Battery and Corlaer's-hock This edifice was the pride and admiration of 
our plain citizens of former days — and children, as the writer of this article 
well remembers, as an incentive to good behaviour through the week, were 
treated with a walk on Saturday afternoon, to see and admire Boss Walton's 
fine house. 

Boss Walton was very hospitable, and gave, as he could well aiford, the 
most sumptuous entertainments of any person in those plain, but bountiful 
days. At the termination of the old and last French war with this country, 
in 1759, (which was crowned by the conquest of Canada, whereby the British 
colonies in America, and especially the province of New- York, were relieved 
from the incursions and aggressions of the French, and the dreadful terrors and 
sufferings by the tomahawk and scalping knife of their savage allies, the 
Indians,) every demonstration of joy was evinced by the good citizens of 
Albany and New- York. 

The Britijh army, on its return from Canada, was hailed and treated with 
the most profuse prodigality. Among others. Boss Walton entertained the 
chief officers, in a magnificent manner. His table was spread with the choic- 
est viands, and a forest of decanters, sparkling with the most delicious 
wines. The sideboard groaned with the weight of brilliant, massive silver — 
none of your tinsel, superficial, plated ware, that dazzles and mock the eyes 
of modern times. 

After the peace of 1763, the English Parliament manifested its intention 
of taxing the colonies, for the purpose of refunding the debt incurred by the 
recent war. The colonies had no objections to paying their liberal quota of 
the expenses, but wished to do it in their own way, through the medium of 
their own legislatures, which were best acquainted with the circumstances 
of the people, and remonstrated against "taxation without representation ;" 
pleading, moreover, that the colonists, harassed by long and sanguinary wars, 
were poor and exhausted — which was the fact. The plea, however, was 



333 

rebutted in Parliament, by an appeal to the elegant entertainments given by 
the citizens of New- York to the officers of the British army, and the dazzling 
display of silver plate at their dinners, equal, if not superior, to any noble- 
man's,— vi^hich hospitality and exhibitions were adduced as proofs of the 
wealth and prosperity of the colonies. But every colonist was not a Boss 
Walton — the generality of our merchants and citizens were humble, but not 
indigent. Remonstrances were vain— the ministry persisted— the stamp 
act. duties on teas, &c., were soon enacted, which led to discontent and riots, 
and opposition to the mother-country ensued. 

The Boston port bill and reinforcement of British soldiers in that town 
followed, which led to the battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill, the Decla- 
ration of Independence, and a seven year's war, that ultimately terminated 
in its acknawledgment by ihe British king, and the emancipation of these 
United States from foreign thraldom and subjugation Long may they ex- 
ist, free from domestic strife, and in their present happy enjojment of civil 
and religious liberty !

FEDERAL HALL 



The City Hall, called, after 1789. "Federal Hall," was situated at the 
head of Broad street, fronting- on Wall street, (where the Custom House 
now stands.) Its lower story formed an open arcade over the foot pave- 
ment. It was erected in 1700, the Common Council having in 1698 voted 
to build the new City Hall for £:J000, and in 1699 sold the ancient " Stndt 
Hiiys," a stone building which stood at the head of Coenties Slip, on Pearl 
street, which was built under the Dutch dynasty, in 1642. This old City 
Hall was sold to John Rodman for £920. 

At the City Hall, or Federal Hall, in Wall street, were held the Sessions 
of the Common Council, the Provincial Assembly, the Supreme Court, and 
the Mayor and Admiralty Courts ; it was also the place of Elections. It 
was finally altered to accommodate the Sessions of the Congress of the 
United States, and such as it then was has been preserved in an engraving 
done by Tiebout in 1789, and in the drawing by Holland, from which our 
engraving was taken. It had been used also as the City Prison, but the pri- 
soners were, in 1789, removed to the then "New Jail," in the|Park. 

Congress having decided to remove the seat of the National Government 
to Philadelphia, Federal Hall was again altered to receive the Courts and 
the Legislature of the State. The latter held their Sessions here until the 
Capito! was established at Albany, in 1797. 

Watson, in his " Annals of New- York," says, — It is curious respecting the 
City Hall, that it was originally constructed on the site and out of the mate- 
rials of a .stone bastion, in the line of the wall of defence along Wall street ; 
and after it was built it is on record, that it was ordered that it be embel- 
lished with the arms of the King and the Earl of Bellamont, which, when 
done, the Corporation ordered that the latter should be taken down and 
broken. 

The British, while they occupied the City during the Revolutionary War, 
used the City Hall as the place of the main guard ; at the same time they 
plundered and broke up the Public Library then contained in one of its 
chambers. 

The best style of appearance of the Federal Hall was on the occasion of 
its being fitted up for the First Congress under the Constitution, which was 
done by order of the Common Council, under the direction of Major L'En- 
fant, a distinguished Architect and Engineer. It was in its gallery on Wall 
street. April 30, 1789, that General Washington was inaugurated "first Pre- 
sident of the United States. This interesting public ceremony, the adminis- 
tration of the oath of office to the President by Chancellor Livingston, took 
place in the open gallery in front of the Senate Chamber, in view of an im- 
mense concourse of citizens. The doors, windows and roofs of every 
hou<e in the vicinity at the same time were thronged with spectators. 

The building stood about 110 years, having been taken down in 1813, 
when the site was sold by the Corporation to individuals for dwellings and 
stores.

Description of the Building. 

The following description of Federal Hall, as it appeared after the altera- 
tions made for the accommodation of Congress in 176t), is from Morse's Geo- 
graphy, Edition of 1802; — 

The most magnificent edifice in this City is Federal Hall, situated on the N. E. 
side of Wall street, fronting Broad streeti where it appears to great advantage. 
The basement story is Tuscan, and is pierced with seven openings; four 
massive pillars in the centre support fourDoriccolumnsand a pediment. The 
frieze is ingeniously divided, to admit thirteen stars in metopes; these, with 
the American Eagle, and other insignia in the pediment, and the tablets 
over the windows filled with the thirteen arrows and the olive branch united, 
mark it as a building designated for national purposes. After entering from 
Broad street, we find a plainly finished square room, flagged with stone, and 
to which the citizens have free access ; from this we enter the vestibule in 
the centre of the pile, which leads in Iront to the floor of the Eepresenta- 
tives' Koom, or Real Federal Hall, and through two arches, on each side, 
by a public stair case on the left, and by a private one on the right, to the 
Senate Chamber and lobbies. This vestibule is paved with marble— is very 
lofty and well finished ; the lower part is of a light rustic, which supports a 
handsome iron gallery ; the upper half is in a lighter style, and is finished 
with a skylight of about 12 by 18 feet, which is decorated with a profusion 
of ornaments in the richest taste. The Representatives' Room is a spacious 
and elegant apartment, sixty-one feet deep, fifty-eight wide, and thirty-six 
high, a covered ceiling of atout ten feet high not included. This room is 
of an octangular form ; four of its sides are rounded in the manner of niches, 
and give a graceful variety to the whole. The windows are large, and 
placed sixteen feet from the floor ; all below them is finished with plain 
wainscot, interrupted only by four chimnies ; but above these a number of 
Ionic columns and pilasters, with their proper entablature, are very judi- 
ciously disposed, and give great elegance. In the pannels between the win- 
dows trophies are carved, and the letters U. S. in a cypher surrounded with 
laurel. The Speaker's Chair is opposite the great door, and raised hv seve- 
ral steps; the chairs for the members are ranged simicircularly, in two rows 
in front of the Speaker. There are two galleries for the accommodation of 
spectators. 

On the left of the vestibule is a lobby, 19 by 48 feet, finished with Tuscaa 
pilasters. This leads to the Senate ChamlDer, which is forty feet long, 
thirty wide, and twenty high, with an arched ceiling. It has three win- 
dows in front, and three back. Those in front open into a gallery twelve 
feet deep, guarded by an elegant iron railing. In this gallery our belovi'd 
late President Washington, attended by the Senate and the House of Re- 
presentatives, took his oath of ofllce in the face of Heaven, and in the pre- 
sence of a large concourse of people assembled in front, at the commence- 
ment of the operation of the Federal Constitution. 

The Senate Chamber is decorated with pilasters, of an order invented by 
Ma-jor L'Ensant, the Architect, which have a magnificent appearance. The 
marble which is used in the chimnies is American ; and for beauty of shades 
and polish is equal to any of its kind in Europe. Besides these, there are 
several other rooms for use and convenience ; a librr.ry, lobbies and com- 
mittee-rooms above, and guard rooms below. The building, on the whole, 
does much credit to the ingenuity and abilities of the architect. Since the 
removal of Congress, for whose accommodation it was thus ornamented, it 
has been occupied by the State Legislature, and by the Courts. 



OLDEN TIME IN NEW-YORK 

Early City Settlement. 



After the Dutch had got permission of the natives to build a fort on the 
island of New- York, in the year 1623, they made it in the form of a regular 
square, with four bastions, on a point of land at the entrance of the North 
and East Rivers, where the Government house is now built. At different 
periods, this fort has been strengthened by making the wall of stone thicker, 
whh first one, and then another wall, outside of the first wall The Dutch 
Director General and the Commandant, beside-> the other oflicers, had 
houses within the fort; and in 164:2, a church was built in the south-east 
corner- The church and houses were burnt down in 1741. It had the Sec- 
retary's office over the gate. The church was not rebuilt, but the houses 
and barracks were, and the Governor's house was burnt down again in 17 — , 
rebuilt in 17 — , and again burnt down in 17 — ; after which, it was not 
rebuilt. 

In 1765, Governor Golden, who resided in the fort, intending to receive 
into the same, and protect the stamp papers expected hourly from England, 
took into the fort Ma'or James, and by his directions had the rampart of the 
fort prepared for defence or offence against the inhabitants, by forming em- 
brasures of cor. 1 wood and dirt, and placing cannon in the same. 

When the house in the fort was burnt down, and the troops were re- 
moved out of the same, the inhabitants dismantled the fort, and pulled down 
to the ground the north curtain, which faced Broadway ; and in 1790-'91, the 
fort was entirely demolished, and the stones sold or made use of to build 
the Government House. The ground was all levelled, so that no trace re- 
mains of the old (ort, or where it stood. When they were removing the ruins 
of the old church, or chapel, several vaults were discovered. In one of them 
was found the remains of the Lady of Lord Bellamont, in a leaden coffin. 

The first fort was built back of the old Lutheran Church, or rather a little 
lower down. As the ground round about the fort was improved as a garden 
belonging to the States General, the second was built at the pouit of land. 

After this fort was built by the Dutch, the persons who came over 
from Holland to settle in America, for the purpose of trading with the na- 
tives for furs, &c., and who could not reside in the fort, built houses under 
the walls of the fort, and formed the first street, which they called Pearl- 
street. From time to time, as they grew in numbers, and formed friendly 
intercourse with the natives, they increased the extent of the city, which 
must have contained a number of houses and streets in lii80. 

The Dutcn, in imitation of what was done in Holland, built dykes in 
Broad-street, as far up as the City Hall, as posts were found standing about 
ten or twelve feet from the houses on each side of the way, not long ago, 
when the street was new paved. The city was enclosed with a wall or 
pallisades, about the year 16 — , from the Trinity Church, across Wall-street 
to the East River. 

In 1744, it had pallisades, with block houses, surrounding it from river 
to river, from near the air furnace, to the ship yard, at the edge of what was 
called the meadows, on the west side. 

Not long before this, the water out of the fresh water, or kollock, ran 
down to both rivers ; to the north by a ditch, and to the east by a small 
rivulet, which increased so wide as to require a log to be laid across, to 



337 

walk on. On the hill, near the river, was a wind-mill. Some years before 
this, there was a wind mill between what was called Crown-street and Cort- 
landt-street. 

Here it was, that, not 40 years ag-o, the Indians still residing in the lower 
part of this state, at particular seasons of the year, came to the city, and 
took up their residence nfsar them, until they had disposed of tlieir poultry, 
brooms, shovels, trays, and baskets. I have seen, in 1746, wheat growing, 
where now St. Paul's Churcih is built, and then there was not twenty 
houses from Division-street to fresh water. I have seen, in 1744, and after, 
several. Indian canoes one after another, come down the East and North 
Rivers, and land their cargoes in the basins near the long bridge, and take 
up their residence in the yard and storehouse of Adolphus Phillips, where 
they generally made up their baskets and brooms, as they could better 
bring the rough materials with them than ready made baskets and brooms. 
They brought with them, if they came from Long Island, a quantity of dried 
clams, strung on sea-grass or straw, which they sold, or kept for their own 
provisions, besides the flesh of the animals they killed. 

Clams, oysters, and fish meat, have formed the principal food, together 
with squashes and pumpkins, of the natives of the lower part of the slate. 
Those who resided in the upper part, besides the fish of the rivers, wild 
water-fowl, and animals of differeni kinds, Indian corn, squashes and pump- 
kins, at particular times in the spring were visited with such amazing 
flights of wild pigeons, that the sun was hid by their flocks from shining 
on the earthfor a considerable time ; then it was that the natives laid in a 
great store of them against a day of need, by killing and drying them in the 
sun, or smoking them over a fire, and afterward packing them up in casks 
made of old hollow trees. The method they took to kill them, was only to 
go among the trees where they roosted at night, and beat them down with 
poles. 

In 1640, the Director-General, William Kieft, having command, there 
came to him a Scotchman, with an English commission, and laid a claim to 
Long Island, which was rejected, and he went off again without doing any- 
thing except setting up the common people against the Dutch Government. 
A meeting on tha subject was held by the English residents at Oyster Bay, 
but they were soon quelled by Kieft. 

In 1647, there came over a Scotchman, called Captain Forrester, who 
laid claim to Long Island for the Duchess Dowager Sterling, pretending 
to be her governor. He had a commission dated in the l&th year of the 
reign of King James, which was not signed by the king or any one else. 
This man was very proud and haughty, and demanded a sight of Governor 
Stuyvesant's commission, saying, that if the governor's commission was 
belter than his, he would go off, or else, Stuyvesant should; but the gover- 
nor, after taking a copy of his patent, sent him with the ships bound to Hol- 
land, but they were obliged to land him in England. 



FNTERESTING SELECTIONS 

OF 

OLDEN TIMES. 



In nS'l King's College was founded. and in 1787, by an Act of the Legislature, 
it was called Columbia College, and put under the care of twenty-four gen- 
tlemen, who are a budy corpoiale, by the n^me and style of the Trustees of 
Columbia College, in the City of New- York. 

The first law which mentions anylliing relating to the establishment of an 
Alms House, and the maintenance of the poor, was passed c'ept '~6ih, lb93. 
It is entitled, an act .<or settling a Ministiy, and raising a maintenance for 
them, in the ( ity of New- York, Counties of Richmond, Westciiester and 
Queens; one good minister for each. It is en cied, among other things, 
that there shall be ten Vestrvmen and two Churchwardens chosen every 
year by the Freeholders, on the second Tuesday of January, who shall lay 
a reasonable tax on said respective Cities, Counties, Parishes or precincts, 
for the maintenance of the miuis-ters and poor of their respective places. 

Stamp Act. 

In 1765, when the Stamp papers were expected from England. Governor 
Golden resided in the fort, and, intending to receive and protect them there, 
he placed Major James, a British otiicer, to fortify the same. The Stamp 
paper was landed, under the protection of a man-of-war, commanded by 
Captain Kennedy. Previous to this, Gov. Coklen had ordered all the can- 
non on the Battery to be spiked. This, and the preparations in the Ibrt, 
alarmed, but did not intimidate, the people, who, alter parading through the 
street with a wooden 3-2-pounder, on which was placed a figure represent- 
ing the Governor, carried it to the fort, and demanded the stamps; these 
being refused, they took the Governor-s coach, sled. &c., out of his stable, 
and burnt them before the fort, and a party went to the house of Major 
James, the contents of which were brought out, and destroyed by fire. This, 
however, did not satisfy the people ; and had it not been for some moderate 
persons, the fort would have been stormed, and, consequently, much blood 
spilt. The people were only pacified by the Governor delivering the Stamp 
papers to the Corporation of the City. 

The inhabitants, therefore, were not sorry when the hou«e in the fort 
burnt down, for they got the Provincial Congress to issue orders that the 
fort should be dismantled, and, accordingly, the north curtain was entirely 
taken away. The British did not think proper to rebuild it again during the 
war; stockades only were put up instead of a stone wall, with a few troops 
left in the fort. 

The Fort. 

After the war, and when the Americans got possession of the city, it was 
not thought proper to repair the fort again, as it was wished that the inhabit- 
ants might never again be intimidated by it, as they had been twice before : 
once inlhe time of Jacob Liesler, when the town was actually fired upon; 
one of the balls struck the house of Jacobus Van Cortlandt, at that time one 
of the Council, and is masoned in the wall fronting the fort, in Dock street ; 



and afterwards l)y Governor Colden, 1765. A resolution was passed by the 
Assembly to remove the ruins ot the fort, and make use of the stones, &c., 
in building a Governmeul house; and, accordingly, in 1791 no trace of it re- 
mained. 

When Nichols took the fort from the Dutch, it was by him called Fort 
James, instead of Fort New Amsterdam. 

When Henry Slaughter was Governor, in 1691, it was called Fort Wil- 
liam Henry. 

When Lord Cornbury was Governor, in 1702, it was called Port Ann. 

Upon the accession of King George to the throne, its name was changed 
to Fort George, which it retained until destroyed ; and, as it is now gone, 
unless some account be kept of it, after some years ii may not be known 
where it stood, or any description of it be obtained; and this has induced 
me to give its history. 

Population, &c. 

It appears, when Thomas Dale and Robert Argol took the first fort, there 
were but four houses without the same inhabited by the l:uteh ; and when 
New- York was taken by Nichols, in 1665, in a letter to the Duke of York he 
writes: '-That such is ihe mean condition of this town (New- York,) that not 
one soldier to this day has lain in sheets, or upon an) other bed than straw." 
In 16«6 there were only 354 men and women, and 762 children, belonging 
to the Dutch church. 

Those who remained in the country built their houses under the guns of 
the fort at first, for protection ; therefore Pearl-street was the first street I 
find by an account in my possession; that in 16S6 there were 16 streets 
in the'citv, namelv, Broadway, Pearl, High, Low, Brewer, or Stone, Prince, 
King, Exchange, New, Bever, Markvelt, Bridge, Broad, gmilh. Dock and 
Smith's Valley, or Vley, now Queens-street. 

Many British subjects must have come over and settled here, as appears 
from the names of some of the streets- I find, by a census taken of the in- 
habitants of New- York in 1697, there were 

Whites 3727 

Colored 575 

Total 4302 

Allowing eight to a house, there must have been about 500 houses at 
this time. By an account taken in 1678, there were 343 houses, containing 
3-130 inhabitants, or ten to a house. To see the amazing increase of the 
city, I have collected the following account of inhabitants and houses at dif- 
ferent periods :—

Coasters not inclnded, except in 1744. 
From Dec. 9, 1755, to Feb. 23, 1756, the quantity of flaxseed exported was 
12,528 hhds. 

From Sept. 29, 1749, to Sept. 29, 1750, there were entered from Great 
Britain and Ireland 21 ve.=sels; cleared for Holland 5 vessels; cleared out, 
6731 tons of provisions, chiefly flour and grain. 

Imported 800 pipes of Madeira wine, and exported 226 pipes ; cleared 
2008 barrels of tar, 156 of pitch; twenty of which were imported from the 
Carolinas. 

In 1678, entered not above 15 vessels, of an average of 100 tons each, of 
which 5 small ships and a ketch did not belong to New- York, and four of 
them were built here. 

Taxes, rortifications, &c. 

In 1703 the Assembly voted £1500 towards erecting two batteries, one on 
each side of the Narrows. They were never built; Governor Cornbury re- 
ceiving the money, and never accounting for the same. 

For raising the above sum, the Assembly came to the following curious 
resolutions, to wit : — 
That every person having the honor to be of her Majesty's Council 

pay a year £-2 

Every representative 1 

Every one wearing a periwig 5 6 

Every bachelor above 25 2 6 

Every freeman from 16 to 60 9 

Every freeman for each slave from 16 to 60 10 

I find that the tax on wigs must have been collected, as it brought in a 
year, by the treasurer's accou'nt, ,£9 17s. 5d., and from 1732 to '34, £26 3s. 2d. 
At this time wigs were much in fashion, especially among the Dutch. 

In 1734, Commissioners were appointed to build a half moon battery, near 
Whitehall ; and, after it was finished, in trying the guns, one of them burst, 
and killed two persons. This battery could mount 70 guns. 

In 1741, the Province received a donation from the Crown of 106 cannon, 
from three to 32-pounders, with all the implements necessary thereto, and 
100 muskets complete, besides powder and other articles, amounting to 
£6773 1 5s. 8d. 

A battery, or ba.stion, was also voted this year to be luilt on the flat rock 
back of the fort. 

In 1744, a battery of eight guns was built at Red Hook. 

In 1745, they voted to build four batteries, and stockade the City from 
river to river, along the meadows, to fresh water, and so to Dominick's 
Brook— eight guns. 

1 do. Desbrosses. 

1 do. on Captain Rutger's wharf— eight guns. 

1 do. on Benjamin Peck's wharf— six guns. 

At a small distance from each other, block houses were built along palli- 



Ml 

sades, which were tilted up on the iuside to about three feet, and Icop holes 
made for muskets. 

After the half-moon battery was taken away, a battery was built from 
Whitehall, opposite to the north corner of the tort, according to a plan by 
Mr. John Dice, who was overseer of the works. The battery could mount 92 
guns. 

Just before the last war with Britain, or in 177o-6, the batteries were re- 
paired, and a fort, called Independence, built on a hill near the house of fllr. 
Nicholas Ba\ ard. It had a most commanding prospect, was built of sods 
and earth, and bad a ditch round, with a magazine under groimd, and houses 
slightly built for the defenders of the fort; yet, upon the whole, it was more 
forshow than real service, having no water, nor any defence against bombs. 

In 1776, the pavement opposite the Slips was taken up, and bulwarks of 
planks and dirt raised across them. These were also more for show ilian 
use, as there were yet many places unfortified where the British could land. 
Such was the state of our fortifications in 177(3, until an order was issued by 
General Washington, with the concurrence of the Provincial Congress, to 
remove the cannon out of the City, and to dismantle the fortifications. Some 
of the cannon went by water to Albany, some to Kingston, and others 
were left behind. 

The Militia of the whole State in 1678, (including 140 horses,) were about 
2000; :69-J, not above 3000; 1688, above 2.")00, horse 300, dragoons 50 — 
2850 ; 1756, Militia of the City, about 2300 men. 



From New-York Council Minutes. — Vol. 8. 

AT A COUNCIL HELD AT FORT WILLIAM HENRY, 

T/iis sixth day of ffehruary, 1698, 

P'sent — His Excellency Richard Earl of Bellamont, etc. 
Captain John Nan.san, Lieutenant-Governor. 
Stephen Cortlandt, Samuel Staats, 

Abrm. de Peyster, Robert Walton, Esquires. 

The rest out of Town. 

His Excellency having sent for the Mayor and Aldermen of the city of 
New York, and they attending without, he acquainted the Councell that he 
had two severall Informations of Seditious words uttered and spoke bv Al- 
derman Jacobus van Cortlandt, at two severall times, the substance where- 
of he delared to them in short, and then ordering the said Mayor and Alder- 
men to be called in, his Excellency spoke to them to this purpose (viz.) : 

That he did much wonder, and was troubled to hear one of their body 
had spoke very Seditious words at several times, one whereof was 
at a Comiltee of Comon Councell, where it beins proposed that a Town- 
house should be built for the accomodation of the Assembly of the Province, 
and of the Courts of Justice, and it baiag debated what part of the Town 
would be most proper and Comodious for the same to be built in, the said 
Cortlandt Excepted against its being built on the upper end of the Broad 
street in this City, (which had been agreed to by the Major part of the said 
Comittee), saying, that was too high a part of the Town for the Town-house 



342 

to be built in, for that it would be too much under the awe of the fTort, that 
an Assembly coukl have no ffreedom of debate where thev were lyable to 
have the house beat down about their eares from the fforl'. Then Mr. Al- 
derman Lewis and Captain Byrang, one of the Comon Couneell being 
called upon by his Lordship, did declare before the said C.ortlandt, that he 
had sayd the foreg-oing words in their hearing. Then his Lordship, address- 
ing himself to the said Alderman van Corllandt, sayd it was a surprize to 
him to find, that a Maei-strate, who had so lately sworn fidelity to the King 
was guilty of such Keflective seditious words tending to withdraw the Af- 
fections of the People from iheKmg; fibr what could be more dislo vail than 
the uttering such words to possess the people that the King was capable of 
making warr on his Subjects by Invading their just rights and Liberties. Was 
il because his Majesty, in his whole Adminisiralion. has shewed a greater 
tendernesse in the rights and Liberties of his People than perhaps any one 
of his P-decessors ever did? 

Then his Lordship told the said Alderman van Cortlandt he had another 
accusation against him, and thereupon produced a deposition of fTrancis 
Wessells, sworn before the Mayor, which Imported his discouraging the 
said Wes?ells from giving his Vote for Mr. Graham, the Attorney Generall 
at this next Election of Assemblymen, for that the said Mr. Graham would 
be for settling the Revenue in the Crown, and that Mr. Staats, Mr. Lewis 
and Mr. Walters, had promised the Governor to confirm the Revenue, and 
to pay a Contribution of four or five hundred pounds per annum towards his 
support in the Boston Government. 

His Lordship also told the said Alderman van Cortlandt that he could pro- 
cure otiier Evidences of his going about the Town, and telling people that 
they must not give their votes for such Assemblymen as would continue the 
Revenue, for that it was the Governor's design to p'vaile with the Assem- 
bly to settle the Revenue for ever. His Lordship asked the said Alderman 
with what C(5nfi:ience he could suggest such malitious Lyes and Stories, 
and that surely he could not p'tend to passe for an honest man afier report- 
ing such manifest Lyes. Then his Lordship did before the Couneell and 
Mayor and Aldermen Challange any man to say that he had ever bespoke 
the settling the Revenue for ever or in any manner whatsoever, and he did 
there declare his Resolution of proposing to the Assembly when they should 
meet the settling a Revenue for the support of the Governtuent for such a 
term of yeares as they should judge proper, for he said it was agreable to 
the Constitution of Parliaments or Assemblyes that the granting a Revenue 
or subsidies of the Crown did allwayes arise from the Repr"sentatives of 
the People. 

Mr. Alderman van Cortlandt then went about to excuse himself by say- 
ing that he Thought he might Lawfully oppose the settlement of a Revenue, 
that this Province might be eased of that Burthen as well as its neighbours. 
But his Lordship told him that was no Argtnnent, for that the King had been 
and still is at a charge in Protecting this Province in mainteining four hun- 
dred '.nen and a man of Warr for their defence, Avhich, with other charges, 
his Lordship did believe did amount to fourteen or fifteen thousand pounds 
p. An', over and above the Revenue of this Province, and bidd him 
consider that in all Countries in the world a prince's protection of his peo- 
ple is ever attended with a Revenue to support his Crown and Dignity as 
the most proper and adequate Return they can make him for his protection 
of them. Then the Mayor and Aldermen were desyred to withdraw ; and 
his Lordship desiring to be advised by the Couneell what Course were best 
to be taken with the said Alderman Jacobus van ( 'ortl.mdt— it was agreed 
that he should be required toenterinto Recognizance in ffive hundred pounds 
to appeare at the next Sup'me Court; and the Mayor and Aldermen being 
again called in, his Lordship acquainted them that the Gentlemen of the 



343 

Coimcell as well as himself thoiig-ht that the said Alderman Corllandt ought 
to be prosecuted at Law for the seditious words he has spolce upon the two 
severall occasions before mentioned, and his Lordship directed Judge Guest 
(tlie Attorney Generall being in the Countrey upon the King's Service, and 
there being no Coancell for the King), who was there p'sent, to take the 
said Aldei'raan's Recognizance in the sume aforesaid, and to observe the pro- 
per and LegjI method in Soe doing. 

Tlie said Alderman Cortlandt said it was a severity that he should be 
prosecuted for words Innocently spoken ; to v^^hich his Lordship made an- 
swer, he vvoiild have a fair Fryall by his Countrey, who would be the proper

the graft," with directions "to see that the newly-made 
graft was kept clean and in good condition, and that the 
boats, canoes and other vessels which came into it were 
laid in order."

inlet ; with reference to which, the following petition was 
presented in 1658 : —

Governor and Council sheweih : 

" That the former line of tortificaiion that did range 
along the Wail street from the East to the North River, 
tog.^ther with the bastions* that were thereon erected, are 
fallen to decay, and the encroachment of buildings will 
render the same useless lor the time to come; and the 
Ci'y, purposing to build a new City Hall, at the end of one 
of the principal streets within the said City, fronting to 
the aforesaid line of fortifications, therefore humbly pray 
that your Honours will be pleased to intercede with his 
Excy. the Captain Genii, that the same fortification may 
be demolished according to the powers and authorities 
intrusted with him, and the stones of the said bastions 
may be appropriated to the bui'dingof the said City Hall." 

The new City Hall above spoken of was built on the 
present site of the Custom House in 1699. In 1703, a 
cage, whipping post, pillory and stocks, for the punish- 
ment of criminals, were erected in the street in front of 
the City Hall. 

A slave market was erected at the foot of Wall street 
in 1709, "at Avhich place all negro and Indian slaves to 
be let out to hire, or to be sold, took their stand." (Ordi- 
nance, 1709 and 1712.

escaped to the city, and the majistrates, on the 20th Sepleinher, resolved to raise up 
the palisades to the height of at least ten or twe'v feet, to prevent the '' overio'ipen,'' 
(jumping over) uf ih?, savages. 

1 Jiihf, 1056. — "The Director General and C" irieillors of New-Netherlands make 
known lo all, that information has been given tii -m, by certain Indians, that several 
Indian-i of the Tappans are harboring some evil design, and have intimated their in- 
tention to murder CM-iain Christian.^ on the flats; and as the Director General and 
Councillors have not been able to ascertain towards what place, or against whom their 
design is entertaiiipd, and not knowing, indeed, but it may be a project of the whole 
nation, they cm neither ord.iin nor apply a remedy in any other way than to revive 
thidr former or. Inrs, to wit : That those persons who are living outside, in separate 
habitations, shall witlidraw into the nearest village or hamlet, and form a combination 
for their piotpction ; and in the ine.m time, that they warn each other, to be on their 
guard, and not to frequent the wools or the road without being armed ; and that they 
always go in companies of two, three, or four, so as to be able to resist these bushmen. 

And further, in ordiM- to prevent such separate murders, the Director General and 
Couiicillors, with tlie advice of the City Buraomasiers, can devise no better cxncdient 
than (in adilit.on to ih-it above written.) to forbid that any Indian, with a gun or other 
weapon, shall be admitted into any fortified place, nor into the flat lands, nor iiMo any 
Iiou-,e, under penally of forfeiting such weapon, which may be taken away by any 
mairistrate. 

This shall go in force eleven days from this date of publication, of which thej' com- 
mand thoir subjects to inform the Indians, in the ladiau tongue, and in the most civil 
mauuer."

Copxi of a Statement made by Frederic De Peyster, Esq., before the NetO' 
York Historical Society, on the foregoing subject— taken from its files .— 

It may be recollected that some time since I presented to the Society, on 
behalf of Mr. Richard Varick De Witt, a variety of maps, charts and sketch- 
es made bv his Father, the late Simeon De Witt, formerly and for many 
years Surveyor General of this State, and during the Revolutionary war 
" Geographer," as he styles himself, " to the United States." 

These maps have been neatly bound and arranged by direction of the 
Society, and form a very valuable portion of its property. They embrace 
the field of the operations of the Army in this and the adjacent States dur- 
ing that disting-uished era, and were made in most instances for the imme- 
diate use ofWashington. 

The present donation consists of five papers in connection with the above 
collection. 

1st. A Map or Sketch, Entitled, "The Winter Cantonment of the Ameri- 
can Army and its Vicinity for 1733." 

2d. A Sketch of New-Windsor, near which the Army encamped during 
the above period. 

3d. A Map or Sketch showing the Country about New-W^'indsor, the roads 
intersecting it, with the names of the principal inhabitant.s, (it is pre- 
sumed,) dwelling in the neighbourhood. 

4th. A Map or Chart of the Hudson, with a portion of the country border- 
ing upon tbe Sound, and extending to the Connecticut. 

And, 5th. A Chart of the Harbor of NewTork, the whole country em- 
braced in No 4, with the names of the principal places laid down 
thereon. A pen and ink Sketch — mo.st beautifully executed— to which 
is subscribed the name of Robt. Erskine, F. R. S., 1779.* 

On examining this Chart, it will be observed, that off the N. E. point of 
Governor's Island the draught of water is marked at 7 fathoms, at the com- 
mencement of what is known as Butter-milk channel. 

This induced me to examine "The Plan of the city of New York," sur- 
veyed in 1766 and 1767, by B. Ratzer, Lieuienunt 60th Royal Am. Regi- 
ment — serving in i: 67— the property of the Society, and "here exhibited. 
This shows a depth throughout this Channel, varying from 3 to 5 fathoms. 
I examined also two volumes of beautifully executed Maps, on a magnifi- 
cent scale, made by the British Government, and published in 17b0 and 1781, 
under the Title of "The Atlantic Neptune.'" 

On the title page of the 1st vol. is a mem., of which the following is a 
copy :— 

"To The Honble.

"As a mark of esteem and grateful remembrance of many valuable acts of 
Friendship, this work is presented by the Author, 

CoLo.^EL Joseph F. W. Des Barrfs. 
"This work is now the property of Messrs. E. and G. W. Blunt, of this city. 

* Mr. Erskine, I am ioformed, was a brother of the celebrated Lord Erskiue.

"In this collection is a Chart, Entitled, 'A Chart of New-York Harbor, with 
soundinii-s, views of land-marks, and nautical direclions for the use of pi- 
lotage, composed from surveys and observations of Lieutenants John 
Kuigrht and John Hunter of the Navy, and others.' 

" Published by J. F. W Des Bakres." 

This Chart marks the continuous depth of Butter-milk channel at 4 fath- 
oms, with 6 fdthoms at the N. E. point of the Island. 

The Surveys from which the Entire Chans were made, are stated to 
have been taken in the years 1765, 1766, 1767 and 1768, and by the British 
Government as before stated, were published in 1780, 1781, for the use of 
the Navy. 

These Surveys in the main correspond with the Chart of Lieut. Ratzer, 
except that the latter, in one instance, makes part of the channel a fathom 
less. 

In connection with this matter, and in illustration of the great changes 
going on in our Harbor, in the course of the improvemems by docks, 
wharfs, &c , since the earliest records bearing upon this investigation is an 
original Document, the property of the Society, which our efficient Libra- 
rian, Mr. Moore, has brought to my notice ; and which 1 beg leave to intro- 
duce to the notice of the members, as a matter of novelty to many, and as 
corroborative of the traditionary reminiscences of some of the veritable 
Knickerbocker race, yet living. 

The extraordinary testimony contained in this paper, contrasted with the 
evidence exhibited in the several Charts to whch I have alluded, led me to 
look into this matter more critically, from my affection for and sympathy 
with the remnant of the same race, become almost "pilgrims and strangers" 
in their own Father-land. 

From the evidence here produced, it is shown that the channel which now 
admits of the safe passage of the largest merchant ships, was formerly a rnere 
creek, fordablc at low water, and that the first female born in the ancient 
colony of New-Amsterdim was ferried over it in a tub. This is shown by 
the testimony of Marabie Bevois, whose evidence was given at the ripe old 
age of ^<4. 

Mr. Alexander, the eminent counsel referred to. was the 'ather of Lord 
Sterling, of Kevolutionary meiBory. Judge Chambers, t^ie uncle of John 
Jay, also stated to bave made these notes, was, exclusive of his otHcial 
situation, one of the influential men of the day. After him our Chambers 
street was named. The name of John Jay, ''last, not least,"' needs no 
comment. 

Gov. Jay's note fixes the time when this testimony was given, viz. : in 
1741. 

In little less than a century this cbannel from a "mere brook," according 
to the testimony of Jeromus' Benson, another wiiness, had attained a depth 
varying from 4 to 6 fathoms throughout, and at this time is reported to be 
much greate.-. 

In addition to this ancient evidence, I may add, that when a student at 
law in the office of the late Peter Van Schaack, of Kinderhook. (of venerated 
memory,) Judge Benson, his valued friend, was often his guest. On va- 
rious occa'^ions, the Judge, in conversing with me about the localities of 
this city, I well remember, stated that in former times this c-hannel was 
fordable at low water. That the gradual extension of the wharfs into the 
East river, on the New- York and Brooklyn shores, had contracted the 
river, and the volume of water thus forced through Butter milk channel had 
deepened the passage so as to admit at that time of the transit of small 
craft.

As to the facts thus in issue, I must admit that I had at no remote period 
my own doubts. I had long- since heard that the channel was of great depth 
upwards of three score years past, and ihe existence of the "little creek," I 
was inclined lo think, to have been beyond the memory of the very oldest 
inhabitant in even Hans Bergen's time, or Hendrick Hudson's day. 

But I bow to the stubborn facts of this case. I was for a time in the 
predicament of the worthy Justice of Mohawk celebrity, who, having pa- 
tiently listened to one side, was unwilling to hear the other, lest he should 
get perplexed. The like dilemma has happened to me, to a certain extent, in 
the course of this investigation. But from the proofs submitted and the re- 
gard I entertain for tradition, where it can be substantially accredited, I 
no longer doubt what these '-witnesses can say." 

I am the more inclined to this view, as I do not mean to place myself in 
the position of a Juror in our Court of Sessions, who, in the palmy days of 
Recorder Kiker, having sharply cross-questioned a wilness, whose direct 
testimony seemed clear and truthful, was remonstrated wiih by the Ccurt, 
and in justification, alleged that he was led to act as he did, ''because the 
witness' evidence did not tally with the statements which he well recol- 
lected to have read at the time in the newspapers."

A BRIEF SKETCH 

OF THE 

BRITISH PRISONS IN NEW-YORK, 

DURING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. 



The British took possession of New- York Sept. 1-5, 1776 ; and the capture 
of Fort Washington, Nov. 16, threw 270U prisoners in their power. To these 
must be added looo taken at the battle of Brooklyn, and such private citizens 
as were ai rested for their political principles in New- York city and on Long 
Island ; and we may safely conclude that Sir William Howe had at least 
6000 prisoners to provide for. 

The sudden influx of so many prisoners, the recent capture of the city, and 
the unlooked-for conflagration of a fourth part of it, thiew his affairs into 
such confusion, that, from those circumstances alone, th{? prisoners must 
have suffered much, from want of food and other bodily comtbrts ; but there 
was superadded the studied cruelty of Capt. Cunningham, the Provost Mar- 
shal, and his depuiies, and the ciiminal negligence of Sir Wm. Howe. 

To contain such a vast number of prisoners the ordinary places of confine- 
ment were insufficient. Accordingly the Brick Church, the Middle Dutch, 
the North Dutch, and the French Church, were appropriated to their use. 
Beside these, Columbia College, the Sugar House, the New Giiol, the new 
Bridewell and the Old City Hall, were filled to their utmost capacity. 

Till within a few year.-', there stood, in Liberty-street, south of the Middle 
Dutch Church, a dark stone building, with small, deep, port hole looking 
windows, rising tier above tier, exhibiting a dungeon like aspect. It was 



373 

five stories high; and each story was divided into two dreary ap-rlments. 
On the stones and bricks in the wall were to be seen initials and dates, as if 
done with a prisoner's penknife or nail. There was a strong-, gaol-like dnor 
opening on Libertv-street, and another on the south-east, descending into a 
dismal cellar, also iised as a prison. There was a walk nearly broad eiiongh 
for a cart to travel around it, where, night and day, two British or Hessian 
guards walked their weary rounds. The vard was surrounded by a close 
board fence, nine feet high. "In the suffocating heat of summer," say.s 
Wm. Dunlap, "I saw every narrow aperture of those stone walls filled with 
human heads, face above face, seeking a portion of the external air.=' While 
the gaol-fever was raging, in the summer of 1~77, tlie prisoners were let 
out, in companies of 20, for half an hour at a time, to breath fresh air; and 
inside they were so crowded, that they divided their numbers into squads 
of si.K each. No. 1 stood ten minutes as close to the window as they could 
crowd, and then No. 2 took their places; and so on. Seats there were 
none; and their beds were but straw, intermixed with vermin. For many 
weeks the dead-cart visited the prison every morning, into which eight to 
twelve corpses were flung and piled up, like sticks of wood, and dumped 
into ditches in the outskirts of the citv. 

The North Dutch Church, corner of William and Fulton streets, was made 
to hold 800 prisoners; its pews were ripped out, and used for fuel probably; 
its mahogany pulpit was sent to London, and put in a chapel there, and o 
floor laid across from one gallery to the other. Bayonet marks are yet dis- 
cernible on the pillars ; and those walls, that had" reverberated with the 
praises of the Most High, now resounded with curses and blasphemy. 

The Middle Dutch Church (now the Post Oifice) was at first used as a 
prison. Mr. John Pintard (an assistant to his nncle Lewis Pintard, who was 
appointed by Congress to look alter the prisoners) says, "In the Middle 
Dutch Church, the" sick, wounded and well were all indiscriminately hud- 
dled together, by hundreds and thousands; large numbers of whom died by 
disease — and many undoubtedly poisoned by inhuman attendants, for the 
sake of their watches or si'ver buckles." Soon afterwards it was turned 
into a riding-school, to train dragoon horses. The floor was taken up, and 
th':- ground covered with tan bark. .A pole ran across the middle, for the 
horses to leap over. The glass was taken from the windows, and the shut- 
ters unhung The church was left in this ruinous condition till 1790, when 
we read, in Greenleaf's Paper of July <ith, that " On Sunday last the new 
Dutch church was re-dedicated to the King of Kings. The Rev. Dr. Living- 
ston preached from Ex. xx, 24. It had been prostituted to horse- scliooling 
while the British had possession of the city, thus turning the House of God 
into a den of thieves."' 

The Brick Chnrch (Dr. Spring's) was at first a prison, but soon it, the 
Presbyterian Church, in Wall-street, the Scotch Church (Dr. Mason's), in 
Cedar-street, and the Friends' Meeting House, were converted into hospi- 
tals. At Ihe Peace, in 1783, there was no Presbyterian church fit to preach 
in, so that Dr. Rogers delivered his famous Thanksgiving Sermon in St. 
Paul's ( hapel. The French Church, in Pine-street, was a storehouse for ord- 
nance stores 

Columbia College was used as a prison only a short time, probably. One 
ofCapt Vandyke's grenadiers saw the great fire, Sept. 21, 1776, from its 
windows. 

The New Bridewell, between the present City Hall and Broadway, was 
for a time used as a prison for American soldiers. Oliver Woodruff, who re- 
cently died at the age of SO. was taken prisoner at Fort Washington, Nov. 
15, 1776, and has left the following record of his confinement here: — "We 
were marched to New- York, and went into different prisons — 816 went into 
the New Bridewell, I among the rest ; some into the Sugar House ; others into 



374 

the Dutch Church. On Thursday mornings they brought us a Httle provision, 
which was the first morsel we got to eat or drink alter eating our breakfust 
on Saturday morning. We never drew as much provision for three days' 
allowance as a man would cat at a common meal. I was there three months 
during that inclement season, and never saw any fire, except what was in 
the lamps of the city. There was not a pane of glass in the windows, and 
nothing to keep out the cold except the iron grates." 

The Old City Hall stood on the site of the present Custom House, and 
was converted into a guard-house ibi- the main guard of the city. Ii had 
dungeons and prisons below; and a courtroom, on the second floor, where 
the refugee clergy preached during the latter part of the war. At first civil 
offenders were confined here; but, subsequently, whaieboatmen and rob- 
bers. Mai. -Gen. Lee, when carried off in 1778, was, for a while, immured 
in its dungeons, and treated as a traitor. 

The iNew Gaol, or "the Provost (now the Hall of Records,) was des- 
tined," says Pintard, "for the more notorious rebels, civil, naval and mili- 
tarj'." An admission into this modern bastille was enough to appal the 
stoutest heart. On the right hand of the main door was Capt. Cunningham's 
quarters ; opposite to which was the guard-room. Within the first barri- 
cade was Serjeant O'Keele's apartment. At the entrance door two senti- 
nels were always posted, by day and night. Two more at the 1st and 2d 
barricades, which were grated, barred, and chained : also, at the rear door, 
and on the platform at the grated door, at the foot of the second fligln of 
steps, leading to the rooms and cells in the second and third stories- When 
a prisoner, escorted by soldiers, was led into the hall, the whole guard was 
paraded, and lie was delivered over, with all formality, to Capt. Cunning- 
ham or his deputy, and questioned as to his numo, rank, size, age, &c., all 
of which were entered in a record book. At the bristling of arms, unbolting 
of bars and locks, clanking of enormous iron chains, and a vestibule dark as 
Erebus, the unfortunate captive might well sink under this infernal sight and 
parade of tyrannical power, as he crossed the threshold of that door which 
probably closed on him for life. The north-east chamber, turning to the left, 
on the second floor, was appropriated to officers, and characters of superior 
rank, and was called Congress Hall. So closely were they packed, that 
when they lay down at night to rest (when their bones ached) on the hard 
oak planks, and they wished to turn, it was altogether by word of com- 
mand, " n'g/it—feft," being so wedged as to form almost a solid mass of hu- 
man bodies. In the day-lime the packs and blankets of the prisoners were 
suspended around the walls, every precaution being used to keep the rooms 
Ventilated, and the walls and floors clean, to prevent gaol-fever. In this 
gloomy abode were incarcerated, at different periods, many American offi- 
cers and citizens of distinction, awaiting, with sickening hope, the protracted 
period of their liberation. Could these dumb walls speak, what scenes of 
anguish might they not disclose I Ihe Captain and his Deputy were enabled 
to fare sumptuously, by dint of curtailing the prisoners' rations, exchanging 
good for bad provisions, ;ind other embezzlements. In the drunken orgies 
that usually terminated his dinners, Cunningham would order the rebel pri- 
soners to turn out and parade for the amusement of his guests, pointing them 

out: "this is the d d rebel. Col. Ethan Allen," "that is a rebel judge," 

&c. 

The other prisons were cleared at or before the close of hostilities, but 
Provost was continued as a prison till Evacuation Lay. "I was in New-Vork 
Nov. 2.5th,'' says Gen. Johnson, "and at the Provost about teno'clock, A. M., 
when an American guard relieved the British guard, which joined a detach- 
ment of Brili.-^h troops, then on parade in Broadway, and marched down to 
the Battery, where they embarked tor England." 
Capt. Cunningham who was executed for forgery in London, Aug. 10th, 



375 

1791, stated in his dying confession : "I was appointed Provost Marshal to 
the royal army, which placed me in a situation to wre ik my vengeance on 
the Americans. I shudder to think of the murders I have been accessory to, 
both ivitk and without orders from, government, especially while in New- 
York, during which time there ivere more than two thousand prisoners 
starved in the churches, by stopping their rations, which 1 sold. There 
■were 2i\iiO two hundred and seventy-five American prisoners andobnox'ous 
persons executed, which were thus conducted: a guard was despatched from 
the Provost about halt-past twelve at night, to the Barrack street, and the 
neighborhood of the upper barracks, to order the people to shut their win- 
dow-shutters and [)Ut out their lights, forbidding them at the same time to 
look out of their windows and doors, on pain of death; after which the un- 
fortunate prisoners were conducted, gagged, just behind the upper barracks, 
and hung without ceremony, and there buried by the black pioneer of the 
Provost.

GOVERNMENT. 

To maintain their domain at the present crisis was not so easy a task as 
that of acknowledging a sovereign, to which they were attached by the 
powerful impetus of national glorvand kindred association. This they were 
aware of. No one imagined that England who, by the treaty of Breda (1667,) 
had ceded valuable possessions in exchange for this Piovince, would suf 
iev its advantages to be wrested from her without a single exertion to blot 
out the ignominy of a conquest to which her local government had submitted 
without a struggle. 

To prepare, therefore, for this demonstration, was the cardinal point to 
which the new government were to direct its attention. By its establish- 
ment the functions of the Supreme Military Tribunal were in a measure ex- 
hausted. Nevertheless, their united exertions were directed to place the 
city in an attitude of entire and perfect defence. They had ail made up their 
minds— first, thai an attack was inevitable; secondly, that it depended on 
themselves whether it should be successful. There was an obstinacy of 
valor in the Dutch character, which achieved impossibilities. Amid their 
most trying difficulties, there was a redeeming decision and energy that 
carried ihem through all obstacles triumphantly. They were indeed a 
remarkable people; honest in purposes; inflexible in faith; resolute in self- 
denial ; calmly brave and judicious ; religious without fanaticism; and in the 
administration of 'ustice strictly impartial. 

That the retention of their conquests depended on themselves, was a 
belief which it required very little persuision to inculcate throughout the 
city. But policy required, at least, that unity of feeling should accompany 
executive energy- The disaffected therefore, including the ci-devan: Gover- 
nor Lovelace and his suite were ordered from the citj-. There was now but 
one soul of action. A brave determination pervaded all classes. A calm 
piety mingled in the deliberations of the magistracy. The Schout, Burgo- 
mnsters and Schepms, at the City Hall, daily opened their Sessionsin prayer. 
The Governor and Council at the fort, instituted a rigid supervision over 
the morals of ihe soldiery, A strict police through the city was established. 



376 

The city became guarded day and nig-ht at every assailable point. At the 
fort, the guard mounted the rampnrts upon duty. The sentinels were 
stationed at the gates. Suballern officers took the rounds during the night; 
visiting the v^^alls; passing the watch-word, and changed the sentinels each 
half hour. 

The reveille was given each morning at day-break. The gates were 
soon after thrown open until sun-set. The lap toe was played each evening 
at nine. It was the signal for retirement. In the city also, the gates, forti- 
fications and bulwarks were guarded day and night. The principal guard 
(Hofldt Wag,) was stationed at the City Hall. Hence the mayor daily pro- 
ceeded with a guard of armed soldiers to the fort ; received from the Gover- 
nor the keys of the city gates, and, accompanied by his guard, opened the 
gates in the morning and closed them in the evening ; and having stationed 
the citizen gunrd (burgher waghl,1 and night watches, returned the keys 
to the Governor. At the head, also, of the city militia (Scutlery,) he each 
evening held a parade before the City Hall. 

Such wa5 the routine of military duty. All was order. Civil regulations 
were also adopted, which the citizens, at a less perilous period, might have 
deemed arbitrary. But the Dutch paid homage to the supremacy of law. 
Private inconvenience for the general good was the patriot's duty. They 
submitted to direct taxation, to demolition of houses that embarrassed the 
defence, and to the assumption on the part of ths Governor and Council of 
the doubtful prerogative of sovereignty, the power of the Ne exeat : for no 
one was psrmitted to pass out of the city, nor even be ferried over the river, 
without a license or passport. No one could pass into the Island, but through 
the city gates, and if any one attempted so to do while the gates were 
locked, death was the penalty. The fort, batteries, redoubts, and fortifica- 
tions, were prohibited ground from the citizens. And yet no murmurs were 
audible- They yielded with alacrity to the exigencies of the crisis. They 
shared the toil of the soldiers on military duty and nocturnal watch. Tiiey 
united in the repairs of the fortifications. Indeed, the true element of public 
defence— popular opinion — was awakened and enkindled. The work of re- 
paration went on with a vigor which the acknowledged poverty of the pub- 
lic treasury had no effect in diminishing. 

The people persevered until winter, when the commanders pronounced 
the fortificaiiDus a sufficient defence without the presence of their fleet. On 
their departure, however, to Holland, it was deemed expedient to leave the 
Surrinam, a 44 gun ship, under the immediate command of Governor Colve, 
and the frigate Sea Dog (Zee Hond.) under Captain Evertson, as an addi- 
tional guaranty for the safety of the city. The Surrinam was moored in the 
East River in front of the City Hall, and smaller vessels were directed to 
leave the dock which was in rnke of the fort, and take shelter in rear of the 
Surrinam in case of attack. The immediate removal or demolition of be- 
tween twenty and thirty houses, gardens, and orchards under the ramparts 
of the fort and outside of the city fortificatiorjs, was indispensable, and the 
Governor and his Council (Steenwyck, De Peyster, and Van Brugh,) issued 
their proclamation for that purpose, and it was obeyed. 

THE CRISIS. 

The selection of these officers for the General Government, was from the 
best and best qualified. The people, therefore, were virtually consulted, 
for they were too single-minded and virtuous to wish any other test of quali- 
fication for office. In this, and in the direct appeal to them, which \\ ill be 
presently shown, we see that even in presence of a conquering fleet, popular 
sovereignty — the sovereignty of opinion — was recognized in the very act of 
organizing a new government over their conquest. It is so in every in- 



377 

stance of the formation and atlministration of government. If tyrannical, it 
is influenced by popular opinion through fear ; if liberal, through choice- 
Tlu' sovereignly ot the people, therefore, as expressed in popular feeling 
and opinion, lies at the base of every government. If corrupt, it engenders, 
but still controls arbitrary povi'er. If Lnlightened and virtuous, it is the con- 
servative strength as well as origin and paramount authority of the govern- 
ment. In all cases, it speaks emphatically, though it speak in silence. In 
the present instance, there appeared to be a strict regard to this primary 
element of political power; and in the choice of the City Magistracy, the 
people, who were directly interested, were to be directly consulted. 

The " Commanders and Military Council," therefore, invited the citizens 
to elect deputies to confer with them at the ( ity Hall. They did so. The 
deputies then notified the citizens to assemble and nominate a list of six 
Burgomasters, (nn office similar to Aldermen,) and fifteen Schepens, (or As- 
sistant Aldermen,) "ofthebestandmost respectable citizens, of the Reformed 
Christian Keligion onlv." The citizens next day assembled in general 
meetins, and made their nomination by a maiority of votes,* viz : — For 
BuriTomasters— Cornelis Steenwyck, Cornells Van Ruyven, Johannis Van 
Brugh.t Marten Cregier, Johannis De Peyster,t and Nicholas Bayard. 

For Schepens— Jeronimus Ebbingh.t William Beeckman.J Egidius Luyck, 
Jacob Kip.J Gelyn VerplanckJ Lourans Van de Spiegel, t Balthazaer Bayard, 
Francois Kombouts, Stephen Van Cortlandt, Adolph Pietersen, Reynier 
Willemson, Peter Jacobsen, Jan Vigne, Pieter Stoutenburg, Coonradt Ten 
£yck. 

[Those marked t were appointed Burgomasters; and Egidius Luyck, 
(who had been Rector of the Latin School,) was superadded as a third 
burgomaster. Those marked J were elected Schepens, and Anthony De 
Mill, Sheriff, and took an oath of allegiance "to the high and mighty Lords, 
and States-General of the United Netherlands, and his Highness, the Lord 
Prince of Orange," to obey their Magistrates, who were, or might be ap- 
pointed; administer equal'ju^tice to parties, promote the welfare of the city, 
" Defend and protect in every part the sincere and true Christian religion, 
in Conformity to the Synod "of Dordrecht, as instructed in the Churches of 
Netherland.j 



■^ All citizen.'!, (Burphers.) were entitled to vote. The suffrage with them was uni- 
versiil. But citizenship, (Burgerrecht,) was a privilege and a distinction under the 
Holland dynasty. It was divided into great and small, (Grnot Burgerrecht and Klein 
Buigerreclit.) Merchants, traders, and shop-keepers, were obliged to p.ay a duty for 
the privilege of becoming small citizens, (Klriu Burirers.) beside.s a recognition duty, 
a duty to the public wharf, to the overseer of the weigh scale.-, to the store house, (pack 
huys,") and to the weigh-master. (eyck meister,) for markine their weights and meas- 
ures according to the " true Amsterdam standard." In 1673, their privileges were 
further ta.\ed for the public defence, by an e.\traordinary duty of two per cent, on 
exports of heaver and others furs, two and a half on imports of friezes and blankets, 
and five on imports of powder, ball, brandies, and distilled waters.

THE EARLY STATE OF 

MEDICAL SCIENCE AND PRACTICE 

IN THE 

CITY OF NEW-YORK. 

"We copy from the eloquent and elaborate discourse of the la'e President 
of the New- York Academy, Professor John W. Francis, the following ac- 
count of the early state of medical science in this metropolis. The details 
are interesting, and no less novel than instructive and curious. The dis- 
course, which abounds in facts of singular value to the medical and phi'oso- 
phical historian, was delivered as the Anniversary Address, in the New- York 
Tabernacle, in November, 1347 : 

New-York has been signally blessed in her physicians. Imperfect asare the 
records concerning our early Dutch doctors, 1 find many prominent intlivi- 
duals among them, who, to medical erudition and scientific knowledge, 
added experience in political councils, and rendered services of no small con- 
sideration to the public weal Several came direct from Holland, the land 
of their birth and the place of their education. Their public trusts were for 
the most part assigned tliem by the anthorities of the Dutch West India 
Company. Johannes Megaolensis, and his son Samuel, are recognized as 
the most conspicuous of these public worthies ; they were men of learning 
and character; the son, Samuel, was a physician, and received his earlier 
education at Harvard Universiiy, and graduated M. D. at Leyden. He prac- 
tised medicine at New-Am-terdam for some time; but was subsequently 
elected by the people as one of the Commissioners to negotiate with the 
British the articles for the capitulation of the Province. About the same 
time Johannes La Montagne. who was also one of the Council, was p|ro- 
nonnced a skilful doctor of medicine. It appears from the Rensselaerwick 
papers*, that a surgeon of the name of Abraham Staes, was also here. 
Hans Kierstede, still earlier, was a practising surgeon here; and a daughter 
of Tryn Jansen was eminent at the same period, as a female obstetrician. 
Gerardus Beekman, also, for a short time exercised the active duties of a 
physician. About 1660, Jacob D. Commer was noted as the City Surgeon, 
but soon after removed to New-Amstel, now Newcastle, Delaware. A 
post mortem examination is recorded in 1691, and Johannes Kerfbyl, and 
five others of the faculty, testified to the accuracy of the statement set forth. 
The subject was the body of Governor Sloughler who had died suddenly, 
under suspicious circumstances. The details are suffieientlv minute, and 
evince an acquaintance with autopsic investigations creditable to the pa- 
thological knowledge of the times- There was a sufficient variety in the 
nativities of these doctors; Kerfbyl appears to have been the most eminent 
among them ; \\^ was a graduate of th;^ University of Lyden, a member of 

*SeeO'Callaghau.

the Colonial Lesislature under the Earl of Bellamont, and a friend ofLeisler. 
He came from Holland, and died about li.99. Jr)hn Lockhartwas a Scotch- 
man; Thomas ThornhiU and Robert Brett were Englishmen. Lueal Van 
Eflinchoone seems to have been from Germany. Gilles Gaudineau, who 
signs himself Chirurgo-Physician, was a Frencliman. Hf; was a liberal con- 
tributor of money to church affairs. The prevailing language of the place was 
the Low Dutch ; some, however, used the German, some the English, and 
others the French, vidiile the Portuguese was used by the Jews. The popu- 
lation of New- York, at that period, was 4,202, 'a little over the number of 
this audience,) including 575 colored slaves. Amongthe records on the sub- 
ject of the pathological examinations, we find that the council ordered that 
eight pounds, eight shillings, be paid by Mr. Collector, to the Chirurgeons 
for opening and inspecting the said body. This, I believe, maybe pro- 
nounced the first or earliest example cf a post mortem examination in the 
annals of our science in this country. John Bard and Peter Middleton, sixty 
years after, 1750, dissected in this city the human body, for the purpose of 
imparting medical instruction. 

At the commencement of 1700, there arrived in this city an individual, 
whose name has, in his descendants, become familiar to our ears, and his- 
torical in the political annals of the Union. John Van Beuren, of Van Beuren, 
near Amsterdam, in Holland, a pupil of Boerhaave, and a graduate of Leyden, 
at the age of twenty-two years, was, upon the recommendation of his great 
teacher," appointed Surgeon of a Dutch Fleet, which sailed for New- York, 
after touching at the coast of Africa. Soon after his arrival in this city, he, 
at the instigation of the Governor, was chosen physician and surgeon to the 
then Alms House ; he enjoyed a large practi'^e. At the age of 25 years he was 
married, and had five sons and three dan. iters, and from him issued the 
whole family of the Van Beurens. His V' ingest son, Beekman, was born 
in this city, in 1727, and died in 1812. He succeeded his father, the first 
settleri as physician to the Alms House, until the English army entered the 
city. At the peace of 1783, he again accepted his public trust, but resigned it 
in 1784. He was the first physician who introduced the practice of Innocu- 
lation for the Smallpox in our public institutions. All the sons of John Van 
Beuren attained the age of eighty and eighty -fivf years. 

The distinguished Cadwaliader Colden, eminent as a philosopher, natu- 
ralist and writer, gave us the first particular account of our climate in 1720. 
He also wrote on the Sore Throat Distember in 1735, and Observations on the 
Malignant Fever which prevailed in New- York in 1741 — 2. His Principles 
of Action in Matter, evinced great acumen, and was a production of high 
repute. His Historyof the Five Nations is universally known. Colden was 
remarkably skilled in botanical knowledge; and from the Linnsean corres- 
pondence, recently published by Sir James Edward Smith, we find that it 
was Colden himself, and not his distinguished daughter, who received the 
high compliment of having a plant of the tetandrous class, named Col- 
den ia. Colden was the first American expositor of the Linnsean system in 
the New World. This classification he taught on the banks of the Hudson, 
almost immediately after its announcement by the illustricus Swede. Kalm, 
the traveller, the Professor at Abo, a pupil of Linr.feas, with whom Colden 
became personally acquainted, might have given him the first intimations of 
the artificial system, as it is known that its principles were expounded in 
America before they were recognised in Great Britain. Indeed, Hudson 
first naturalized the sexual system by adapting it to English plants, in 1762. 

About a century ago, Dr. Johnson, of Perth Amboy, in New-Jersey, was 
sedulously devoted to Flora, and maintained a correspondence on sub'ects 
of natural history with the philosophers of Europe. In one of his letters, he 
says, he thinks the information he imparts will be found profitable to an in- 
quirer of like facts, one Mr. Linnaeus. I have not yet satisfied myself whether

Johnson was a practitioner in New- York at that early date. In 1740, Isaac 
Dubais took hi> degree of Doctor of Meriicine at Leyden, at which time h-i 
published a dissertation on the use and abuse of bloodletting-. He, doubtless, 
had listened to the instructions of Boerhaave. He exercistd tlie art in 
New- York. Contemporary with Dubois, was a physician of note, of the 
name of John Nicoll. He was imprisoned by Leisler, and subsequently pre- 
sided as. judge on the trial of the accused Governor. Dr. John L'upuy was 
also another contemporary who flourished in this place ; he was learned and 
eminent in his calling, but died early, in the Sfih year of his age, in 1745. 
Dr. John Bard, long a distinguished "clinical practitioner in New- York, pub- 
lished several papers on the yellow fever, and an pssay on the n'lture and 
cause of the malignant pleurisy, which proved so fatal to the inhabitants of 
Long Island in the winter of 1749. He further added to the usefulness of a 
life of great toil by private instruction in practical medicine. I at present 
remember but one of his immediate pupils, Dr- Henry Mott, who exercised 
for many years the art, both on Long Island, where he was born, and also 
in this metropolis; and where he, in 1840, died at the advanced age of 83 
years. Dr. Mott was a promoter of the mercurial practice in the sore throat 
distemper, and in other diseases, and was much associated during his pro- 
fessional career with Dr. Ogden and Dr. Muir>on ; but he will be long re- 
membered in our annals as the father of Valentine Mott, the great chirur- 
geon of our limes, the improver of the art, and the introductor of surgical 
anatomy and pathology in our schools of medical science. Dr. Peter Mid- 
dleton's Historical Inqtiiry, on the ancient and present state of medicine, 
delivered twenty years after, 1769, was a most etiective essay. Middleton 
was learned, acute, and practical ; in manner singularly refined, and of a 
generous nature. He arr'v.d in this country with Dr. Wm. Hunter, of 
Scotland, who came to P^ ■ • Island in 1752, and who was rendered famous 
by his anatomical lectures ii,ere. Middleton also wrote an excellent paper 
on Croup, and was the first professor of the practice of physic in the newly- 
organized medical school connected with Columbia CoJlege. Middleton 
died in New-York, in 1781. He was a man of rare excellence, widely 
known, and admired by all. 

Dr. John Jones, ever to be remembered as a physician to Wa.shington 
and the surgeon to Franklin, was a native of Long Island : he completed his 
education abroad, at London, I.ieyden, and Paris. As surgeon, he held the 
fiirst rank among the practitioners of the art in that day. In 1768. he was 
chosen an associate in the same school with Middleton. His volume on 
"Woimds and Fractures, published in 1776, and subsequently reprinted, 
attests his great qualifications. Percival Pott and William Hunter are to be 
enumerated among his scientific friends. Dr. Samuel Bard, the associate 
of Middleton, Glossy, Smith, Tennant and Jones, as the founder of our first 
medical school, was conspicuous for his classical and general knowledge, 
and his great practical skill in medicine. He was first professor of natural 
philosophy, and subsequently of clinical medicine, and was long Dean of 
the Faculty in Columbia College. In his later years, he was the President 
of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the Univcr.'sity of the Stole of 
New-York, upon its re-organization in 1811. His acquirements while at 
Edinburgh secured him the Hope medal for Botany, and Haller commended 
his thesis for the Doctorate, De Viribus Opii. His inquiry into the nature, 
cause, and cure of Angina Suflbcativa, first appeared in the Transactions of 
the American Philosophical Society. He wrote some papers on the nature 
of yellow fever, printed in the facts and (observations, in the Additional 
Fads and Observations of the College of Philadelphia. His Compendium 
of'Midwifery has had a wide circulation. To Dr. Bard, clinical medicine 
and humanity at large are greatly indebted for his successful efTorts inlaying 
the foinidation of that important institution, the New- York Hospital. Few 



381 

surpassed Bard in all the best and noble qualities which constitute intellec- 
tual and moral excellence. His memory is still cherished with the most 
grateful associations by the few of our venerable citizens who still abide 
wiili us. 

Our profession is indebted to Dr. Jacob Ogden, of Jamaica, Long- Island, 
but who practised largely in this city, for his Letters on the Malignant Sore 
Thro;U Distemper, bearing date 1769 and 1774. Ogden was a bold and 
rigorous practitioner, and urged with great earnestness the mercuiial prac- 
tice in pneumonic afiections. 

In 17>!il Dr. Richard Bayley, of this city, published his letters addressed 
to Dr. William Hunter, of London, on Angina Trachealis, a tract of singular 
merit, and from which we are justified iu giving to him the merit of being 
the first writer who understood the nature and treatment of Croup. He 
wrote a volume of deep interest on the yellow fever of New-York, as it 
prevailed in 179.i : and in which work he attempted to give distinctiveness 
to the term contagion and infection. As Health Physician to the Port of 
New- York, he addressed a series of letters to the New- York Common 
Council on that subject, which more than any other for a long wliiie en- 
grossed his attention, the origin of the yellow fever, and the nature and 
expediency of quarantine laws. Too much cannot be said in behalf of the 
exertions he made to establish our Lazaretto, and the state regulations 
which originally existed, to lessen the evils of pestilential miasmas. 

Ths first medical degree conferred in this city, was that of Bachelor of 
Medicine, in 1769, upon two candidates, Samuel Kissam and Robert 
Tucker; and in 1770, that of Doctor of Medicine, upon Samuel Kissam. the 
first named of these gentlemen. I must trespass a moment concerning this 
Kissam. The first graduated Doctor of Medicine in the Western Hemis- 
phere calls for a word or two. John Kissam, of the family of the Kissams, 
early left Eng'and, and embarked for America. A part of them emigrated 
to Long Island, where the aforesaid Samuel was born, at 3Iadnan, now 
Great Neck, about the year 174.3. His father, John, had five sons, of whom 
the most eminent was Benjamin Kissam, eminently distinguished as a 
lavi^yer at our bar, and the preceptor of the late venerable statesman, John 
Jay. He was also the father of the late prominent surgeon, Dr. Richard S. 
Kissam. Samuel, our first graduate, entered upon the practice ot physic in 
the city of New- York, but left it soon after his graduation, with Tennant, the 
Professor of Obstetrics, to enjoy better prospects in the West Indies; an 
ample field of business enabled him soon to realize a fortune, but he and 
Tennant within a few years fell victims to the yellow fever of that 
climate.

vs. \ 

Ide Van Vorst, Deft. ) 

Pltff saith that Deft, lays claim to half a negro which he received from 
Capt. Geiirt Tysen and his company,, in return for a feast given to him. at 
which two sheep were eaten, and Tde Van Vorst al-^o had two sheep at her 
wedding. He maintains that the Deft, iias no right to the negro, but that 
he belong-s solely to him. 

Deft, answers that by deed ofsile of their mother's property, the just half 
of all the same belongs to her and her sister. She therefore insists thai half 
the negro belongs to her, and demands the same, acknowledging that the 
sheep were shared by both sides. 

Parties being heard, the court decided that inasmuch as the negro was 
given by Capt. Gnert Tyson and his company to Jacob Stoffelsen, the same 
doth not belong to the estate. But Jacob Stoffelsen must duely prove that he 
gave some value to Capt. Guert Tysen and his company for the negro out 
of the estate, whenever any further dispute arises thereon.

David Israel and the other Jews, according to their signatures, Defts.} 

Touching the ballance of the payment of the passage of the said Jews, for 
which each is bound in SoUdum. Whereas, their goods sold thus far by 
vendue, do not amount to the payment of their obligation it is, therefore, 
requested that one or two of the said Jews be taken as principle, which, ac- 
cording to the aforesaid contract or obhgation, cannot be refused. There- 
fore, he hath taken David Israel and Moses Ambrosius as principal debtors 
for the remaining ballance, with request that the same be placed in confine- 
ment until the account be paid. 

The Court having weighed the petition of the PitfT, and seen the obliga- 
tion wherein each is bound ni So/idnni for the full payment, have con- 
sented to the Pltff""s request, to place the aforesaid persons under civil 
arrest, (namely, with the Provost 3Jarshal.) until they shall have, mwde salis- 
lliction ; provided, that he, La Motthe, shall provisionally answer for the 
board, which is fixed at sixteen stivers per diem for each prisoner ; and is

Hendrick Pietersen, alias Kint in 't water, (child ia the water,) Pltff. ) 
Wolfert Webber, Deft. ) 

In a case of arrest of certain timber which the Deft, cut on his land, Pltff. 
claims that it was cut on his land. Deft, saith, he cut the timber in divers 
places, and fliai all was not cut off PltfT's land. He adds that he hired the 
land of the Pltff. for six years, and that the latter consented to his cutting 
some spars therefrom, and that he had the consent of the others. 

Parties being heard, the arrest on the timber was declared null and void, 
and Webber was allowed to haul it home and use it at his pleasure, pro- 
vided he states that he can prove he cut it by consent on divers places. 



At the meeting aforesaid, 

Wolfert Webber summoned to court by the Worshipful Magistrates, on 
the complaint of some neighbours, in consequence of damages he inflicted, 
attacking with dogs and beating certain pigs which went on his land. 

"Wolfert Webber demands the name of the complainant. William Beek- 
man states it to be on the complaint handed to him, of Mde. V'erlelh and 
Stiller's wife, because their hogs were unwarrantably attacked and injured 
by Webber and his dogs, so that he considered it proper to acquaint the 
court. 

W. Webber says he was so annoyed by the hogs in his land, whereby all 
his seed was destroyed, that he divers times drove them home, but not be- 
ing able to keep them off, he hunted them with dogs, but he did not injure 
them in the least ; on the contrary he was at various times insulted and 
threatened with a beating by Mde. Verleth. 

The worshipful court admonished Webber to keep himself clear of com- 
plaint, and to institute his action should he suffer wrong. 



Sybout Claessen demands, by Petition, inasmuch as the street planking 
before his house hath fallen down, through the last high water, and the 
other neighbours leave their lots unsheeted, and he alone should not be 
obligated to repair the same at considerable expense, that the Burgomasters 
and Schepens bj pleased to order that the gardens from the corner of the 
Ditch to the City Hall, be all equally planked up Whereupon was en- 
doised. 

The request being found reasonable, it is ordered by the Worsh. ( 'ourt, 
that each oi.e shall plank up (beshoyen) in front of his lot from the City Hall 
to the corner of the Ditch, (graft) including the City Hall building; failing 
which the same shall be executed by the Worsh. Court, at the expense of 
the lots which are in default. 

On the instant request, both verbal and written, of Jan. Peck, to be al- 
lowed to pursue his business as before, inasmuch as he is burthened with a 



385 

houseful of children and more besides : the Worsh. Court having considered 
his complaint, and that he is an old Burger, have granted his prayer, oa 
condition that he comport himselfproperly and without blame, and not violate 
either one or the other of the placards, on pain of having his business stop- 
ped, without lavor, and himself punished as he deserves, should he be found 
again in fault.

the City o-' Amsterdam, have apprehended the person oi Aryaen Jansen for 
having violently attacked on shore his skipper (who must pay him wages 
and board according to asfreemeni.) and assaulted him with a drawn knife, 
and wounded liim in the hand as the skipper hath complained, and demands 
justice and aid. Wherefore the Sheriff ex-officio requests youi Lordships 
that Adriaen Jansen may be punished as an example to others, according 
to the tenor of the Placard, dated XVI. May. 1047. Ady 16 April, 1655,

Ordered by the W. Court that the Heer Officer shall produce his proof in 
support of his action as he claims, by next Monday. Meanwhile the prisoner 
shall be ag-ain remanded to prison. 



Ordinance enacted and concluded by the W. Court of the City Amsterdam 

as to the time of appearing of the Scbout, Burgomasters and Schepens, 

both in Ordinary and Extraordinary Session. 

Schont, Burgomasters, Schepens and Secretary shall be holden to appear, 
on notification by the Court messenger, at all Ordinary Sessions in the City 
Hail, precisely at 9 o'clock on the ringing of the bell ; or at Extraordinary 
Sessions at the hour appointed, under a fine as follows : 

Firstly, whoever comes half an hour after the Bell rings or the time ap- 
pointed (when the Court Messenger shall turn a Sand box, or Hour glass) 
sh;ill be fined six stivers. 

Whoever comes one hour too late as before said twelve stivers ; 

And whoever is wholly absent, or until the Court adjourns (without good 
reason, such as sickness, being from home, to wit at Fort Orange, at the 
South or North), shall be fined each time forty stivers. 

Which imposed fines shall be paid immediately down, without any excep- 
tion, and collected by another, to be expended or employed in time and cir- 
cumstance, as by plurality of votes shall be found proper. 

Thus ordained and concluded this 16th April, 1665, at the aforesaid Meet- 
ing, in the City Hall, at Amsterdam in New Netherlands. 

Whereas Aryaen .Tansen van Spreckerhoorn, Navigator and Sailor on 
board the Ship Black Eagle, hath undertook, on shore, within this City, to 
assault his skipper with a naked knife, and wounded him in the hand, wherof 
the skipper having entered complaint and demanded justice, the aforesaid 
Aryaen Jansen was placed in confinement. Therefore the W. Court of this 
City Amsterdam, in N. Netherland, havini? heard and examined the demand 
and conclusion of the Heer Cornells van Tienhoven, in his capacity as She- 
riff' of this Git v, against the prisoner, the proof thereof, the complaint of ihe

Honble. Lords Director General and T'ouneil, on VII. May, 1647 ; and, what 
further is material thereto, have condemned the aforesaid Aryaen Jansen 
van Spreckerhoorn, as their Worships of the Court do hereby, in considera- 
tion of the delinquent's youth, the intercession of the skipper, &c., to appear 
in Court, and there, with uncovered head, ask forgiveness of God, Justice 
and his skipper; to defray the costs of arrest, and pay in addition a fine

The Burgomasters and Schepens assembled this day to open a certain let- 
ter received by the Ship ihe Ballance of Amsterdam^ the superscription of 
which was: — Honorable, Upright, Faiililnl, the Burgomasters and Schepens 
of the City New Amsterdam, in New Netherland. Which was done in 
the aforesaid Assembly ; and further, the Secretary was ordered to read the 
same. 

(Copy.) 

Honorable, Worshipful, Upright, Beloved, Faithful: 

As good governments are bound to take care that their Lands, Cities and 
People be freed and protected, as much as possible, from violence and in- 
jury on the part of foreign enemies and neighbors, so is it the duty of a good 
Commonalty to assist in defraying the Common burthens which were con- 
tracted and incurred for maintaining themselves therein. It behooves vour 
Worships to know what pains and expenses we have incurred ere that City 
was placed in such a posture; notwithstanding which your Worships have, 
up to this time, failed to procure any subsidies for this purpose from the 
Commonalty there. 

Inasmuch as that is contrary to the maxims of all well-regulated Countries 
and Cities, and in especial opposition to the government of this City, it be- 
comes now necessary in this present coniunctureof time and circumstances, 
that herein no further postponement be made, unless "we are content to be- 
hold the ruin of this State, now of such good promise. Wherefore, we being 
obliged to consider some means of supply, have thereunto Resolved, Con- 
cluded and established the following, and namely — 

On each morgen of land, yearlv. Ten stivers, 
" " Horn Cattle, yearly, Twenty stivers, 
From the rent of houses, the Twentieth penny, also yearly. 

And though this our Order shall be more fully made known to you by our 
Director General and Council, aswehave, according to their office, absolutely 
authorized these in all this matter, yet we have considered it, also, necessary to 
enjoin this speciallv on your Worships, with serious and earnest recom- 
mendation not only to set a good example to the Commonalty in contributing 
the aforesaid supplies, but also to encourage them therein, and even, if

Honorable, Right Beloved : 

Considering, on the one side the nnani''old mercies and goodness of God, 
which His bounty, from time to time, not only haih exhibited, but also con- 
tinued to this young budding Province, whereof there have been no lew 
proofs, the sudden and unexpected changing of a dreaded War unto an ac- 
ceptable Peace vouchsafed unto us last year, since which lime God's mer- 
cies and blessings have not failed us, neither in our outgoings nor in our ia- 
comings, nor in the departure nor return of divers vessels and persons 
wherein the good people of this Province were, generally, inlere.-ted; 
whereunto is also to be added God's blessing, generally, in the advance- 
ment, prosperity and settlement, not only of the Slate in general, but also 
of each Individual in particular, which ought to move every one to grateful 
acknowledgment and thankfulness, sensible that this alone is the right key 
to open unto us the further treasures of God's merciful favor and blessings. 

Considering, on the other hand, the resolution and order of the Supreme 
Magistracy of this Province to be undertaken and executed under God's 
guidance for the further benefit and security of this Colony ; M'hereunto then, 
first of all, God's especial blessing, aid and countenance should be, with 
humble heart and earnest prayer, besought; the Director General and Su- 
preme Council of this Province have, before all things, thought necessary 
to ordain and prescribe a day of general Fasting. Prayer and Thanksgiving, 
which shall be observed everywhere throughout this Province, on Wednes- 
day next, being the a.'ih of this month of August, in the fore and afternoon 
of that day, publicly to preach at the usual place, God's Word, after hearing 
which to laud and praise the All-good God for His general and particular 
blessings, favors and benefits, exhibited and continued towards this Pro- 
vinc-e, and the good People thereof: on the other side, to pray God, with 
humble hearts, that he would please not only to continue the same, but also 
(which is the principal object o'' this order) especiall;, to beseech the Good 
God to bless the pro ected Expedition, solely intended for the greater se- 
curity and advancement of this Province; to prosper it for the honouro; His 
name, and to bring it to the wished for is.«ue. considering that all unJeriak- 
inffs. councils and projects are idle and vain which have not God's Holy 
blessing 

There^'ore. the Servants of God's Word are requested to <brm texts, 
Prayers and Thanksgiving to this purpose, and all subjects pro'essing the 
Re ormed Re'igion are charired to attend the same, at the appointed time, 
at the place where God's Word is usually preached, in order, with each 
Other, to praise and iliank the All-beneficent God 'or received gifts, 
and to prny for his blessing as well over the Country and good people there- 
of in general, as especially over the proposed Expedition. Likewise, that 
He would please to take under His merci'"ul protection the Director Gere 
ral, Councillors, and other High and In erior officers, with their men and 
ships, and their undertaking in such wise to bless that all may result to His 
holy name's honor; to the establishment of His holy Gospel, and to the ad- 
vantage of this Province and the good people thereof. For the better ob- 
servance and attention thereof, the Director General and Council forbid all 
common business on that day, such as ploughing. Sowing, mowing, fishing, 
hunting, &c., as well as all games ol Tennis, ball playing, tapping aud

and at the request of the Commonality for the jrrealer sa'ely mid security of 
the same, the outer works have been furnished with a currain o' Planks 
against an assault of the barbarous Indians, who, on the nii/lit o' the 15ih 
instant, uiiexpectediv fell upon us with murder, robbery and fire. Which 
aforesaid work being now tinished, and the expenses as well 'or labour as 
materials are to be paid, we presume, under correction, that the said pay-

protection disbursed. We request your Honors to authorize us in our 
quality to raise the expenses of the a'"oresaid work already executed, and 
still to be performed, Irom and out of the Commonalty, and that each one 
shall contribute, according to his circumstances ard condition. 

The sum is at present estimated about Four thousand guilders Expect- 
ing your order hereupon, was signed

The representation of the Burg 'masters being read and considered, it 
was resolved that the request is .iust. 

But as the same concerns the whole Commonalty, it was decided for the 
greater peace and the maintainance of unity, that before authority be 
granted, saving the respect due lo the Burgomasters, that their Lordships 
shall communicate the Request to the Schepens of this city, and the same 
being also signed by their Worships or the ma orily o*" them, further con- 
sideration shall be taken of it on the return o the Lord General who is d;iily 
expected. Meanwhile the Burgomasters can perform their duty and satisfy

and safety of the property and merchandize transported hither by Individual 
Skippers, Merchants, Factors, and other passengers, to provide this city with 
some outer works, which, in this last unexpected reccntre wih the native 
Indians of this Country, it has been considered expedient to repair and to 
strengthen with a pjank curtain 5 a 6 high, in order to be better secured 
against an attack and escalade of the aforesaid Indians, as it appears by the 
resolve of iiOth Sept'r last, adopted for this purpose at the City Hall of this 
city. 



Wherefor, as well formerly as now again, some monies have been raised 
and disbursed by divers honorable merchants, which, according to all well 
regulated cities and places, il is usual to have supplied and ought to be fur- 
nished by the Burghery inhabitants and Traders of such places. Therefore 
the Director General and Council of New-Netherland, having examined and 
seriously considered the written representations of the Burgomasters of this 
city, exhibited at divers times, have ior the supply of the incurred and still 
necessary expenses on the public works, consented in the presence 
of all the Schepens, as they do hereby consent, that the aforesaid 
Burgomasters, at the suggestion of the Hon'ble Lord General I'etrus 
Stuyvesant, shall first and 'oremost have power to ask irom the Trad- 
ing Skippers, Merchants, Factors, and Passengers, and from the Common 
Bur,.;hery, a voluntary subscription and contribution, each according to 
his condition, state and cin-umstances. And in case o. opposition or reiusal 
by disafiected or evil minded, which the Director General and Council do 
not expect, the aoresaid Burgomasters with the President of the Schepens, 
are authorized, at the instance of the Respected Lord Director General, to 
assess such, and according to the state and condition o the same to exact a 
reasonable contribution, and promptly to levy execution fur the same. Fur- 
ther, the above mentioned Burgomasters and President of the Schepens, 
present and iiiture, are hereby authorized, or the further supplement and 
necessary repairs as well o this City's works, City Hall, and other neces- 
sary expenses, at the suggestion and on the resolution of the liespected 
Lord Director General, to create, at a more convenient season, and impose 
some reasonable and necessary charges on the Lots, Houses and i.eal 
estate, according to the order and custom o' Fatherland. Thus done at the

quest of the Schout, declares that he was on some business at the house of 
Daniel Litscho. where the Deft being, caused him to be called from the 
room in which he was— who, after havins some discourse with him, came 
to speak, anion? other things, of the judgment on the Bill o' Exchange un- 
der protest. The De eiidt. said, the Magistrates know not what they are, 
and were only lools and simpletons. 

The Hon Allard Anthony, Actual Burgomaster of this city, at the request 
of the Heer Schout, rises and declares, that Walewyn Vander Veen, speak- 
ing of the udgment on the protested Bill of Exchange, said— they know not 
which of the two declarations aforesaid was denied by Walewyn Vander 
Veen; requesting that his verbal proposition and written exception handed 
in, may be disposed of saying, if not, I appeal. 

Walewyn Vander Veen being called in, the Heer Officer concludes, 
iiomin^ officii, that Delt shall, for his committed insult, be condemned to 
repair the injury, honorably and piofitahly ; honorably, by praying with un- 
covered head forgiveness of God and Justice; profitably, by paying as a 
fine the sum of Twelve hundred guilders, with costs, anii in case of refusal, 
to go into close confinement. 

The Deft, requests that disposition be made of his entered exception, and 
if such were not decided he should be obliged to appeal, saying, he does 
not answer to the main matter. 

Whereas, Wulewyn Vander Veen insulted the subaltern bench of Justice 
of this city, and spoke calumniously of the same, touching which the Heer 
Otficer making his demand. Burgomasters and Schepens having heard the 
demand and proof of the Heer Schout, ad udgeii that Walewyn Vander 
Veen, for his committed insult, shall here beg forgiveness, with uncovered 
head, of God. Justice, and the W Court, and moreover, pay as a fine, 
the sura of One hundred and ninety guilders, to be duly applied' Avith costs, 
and in case of refusal, he shall go immediately into confinement. 

Which judgment being read.Walew ynVanderVeen said. 1 appeal, and re- 
quest a copy of the sentence to answer to its principal points, saying further 
— People complain at the South Kiver; but I may well regret myself 
here. 

Whereas. Walewyn Vander Veen hath refused to obey the sentence, he 
was ordered by the W. Court to go into his house in confinement, and to be 
kept there by a Court messenger until he shall have obeyed it. 

To the Rt. Honble. Lords, the Lords Director General and Councillors of 
N. Netherland : 
Rt. Ho.sorable Lords:— 

The Burgomasters and Schepens of this city respectfully represent to 
your Honour*, that Walewyn Vander Veen hath retused to obey the pro- 
nounced sentence hereunto annexed, and hath been committed a prisoner 
to his own house uniil he shall have conformed to the same. Request, in- 
asmuch as the insult is destroying the authority and respect of this C ourt of 
Law, the support of the Supreme government, so that similar occurrences 
may be prevented. Kemaining, 

Understood. Your Honour's humble subjects,

The Hear PItff. saj's, he had fined Deft.'s wi-^e because that there were 
nine pins at her house last Sunday during preaching-, and can and glass 
stood on the table. 

Deft, says he was not at home, but on the Watch— and that there were 
no nine pins at his house, nor can the Honble. Pltfl'. say that he saw drink- 
ing at his house during the preaching. 

De t.'s wi e appears in tour!, denies that there was any nine pins or drink- 
ing at her house, saying, that .some came to her house who said, that church 
was out,|and that one had a pin and the other a bowl in their hands, but ihey 
did not play. 

The Heer Schout states, that De endant's wi e said, she did not know but 
church was out, and offered to compound with the Schout. 

Parlies being heard, Delt. was condemned by the W. Court in the fine of 
six guilders, lo be applied as is proper.

The Heer PltfF. savs, that De't. insulted the Heer Schepen Tymotheus 
Gabry, calling him a Bastard. Demanding that he shall repair the injury 
profitably and honourably, and pay a fine at the discretion oiihe Court 

Deft, acknowledges he said so, but in jest, not thinking that it should be 
so taken, and might well have been silent. 

The Schepen Gabry, rising, declares, that one evening the clock striking 
nine, it was not heard by him, the Deit. said, if thou can'st not hear that, 
thou must be a Bastard. 



403 

And whereas, Jan de Witt answers, that such was spoken by bim in jest 
and not irom malice. Burgomasters and Schepens say to Jan de Witt, 
standing inside, that they iorgive him lor this turn, but he must take care 
not to repeat the offence, or that other provision shall be made. 



Paulus van de Beeck, Pltff. 

vs. 

Marten de Waart. Defl. 

Pltff. says that Deft, laid in three Barrels of Beer for his wedding, and 
paid excise only on five half-barrels, and had no permit for one half-barrel. 

Deft, says he told Bareni Jacobzen, the Beer-drawer, to take out the per- 
mit. 

Pltf. acknowledges that Barent Jacobzen was with him to enter the half- 
barrel, but Deft would not pay for the permit, and he would not trust him, 
and Deft, then laid in the beer without permit. 

Burgomasters and Schepens condemned the Deft, to pay the Pltff. the ten 
stivers, with the costs incurred thereon. 

Alexander Carolus Curtius, Rector, appears in Court, setting forth that the 
Farmer hath spoken to him about payment of the Excise; and whereas 
Professors, Preachers and Rectors are exempt from excise in Holland, he 
sustains he also is exempt from excise, the rather as the Heer Director Gen- 
eral hath granted him fee excise. 

The W. Court decided that the De. Rec'or shall pay the excise.

At the Court of the Schout, Burgomasters and Schepens, appeared the 
Honble. Valiant Heer General Petrus Stuyvesant, to assist at the nomina- 
tion of the succeeding Burgomasters and Schepens. 

The Heer otBoer, ri.sing, asks if any of the Magistrates had any objection 
that he sliould co-operate with the Magistrates in the nomination of succeed- 
ing Burgomasters and Schepens. Question being put, it was decided that 
he could not, inasmuch as it manifes'ly conflicted with the Jurisdiction of the 
Heer Schout, and the laws and customs of the City Amsterdam, in Europe. 

The Heer Director General decides that the Heer Schout shall have vote 
and co-nomination, assuring them that it shall be so concluded by the Direc- 
tor General and Council of New Netherland. Burgomasters and Schepens 
declare if the Director General and Council should so decide, so it must be 
with ihem. 



404 



Whereupon the Heer Director General, the nomination be postponed until 
the ncte thereof be given to the Burgomasters and Schepens. 

After some further debate over and hither, the Meeting adjourned until 
four o'clock in the afternoon, vi^hich being again Complete, 

The Heer Schout Pieter Tonneman exhibited to the Court a Certain Acte 
from the Honble Director General and Council of N. Netherland, w^hich 
reads as follows:— 

Director General and Council of N. Netherland, comparing the previous 
with the present Instruction of the Schout of this City, decide for cause that 
the Schout must preside in the Court of Burgomasters and Schepens, and 
consequently have opinion and vote in the Annual Nomination of the Subal- 
tern Magistrates of this City, and all other matters wherein he is not a party. 
Thus done at the Assemblv of the Honble Lords Director General and 
Council, holden in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherland, the first of Febru- 
ary, Anno 1661. 

Understood, P. Sttjyvesant. 

Lower stood. 

By order of the Honble. Lords Director General and Council of N. 
Netherland, was signed, 

C. V. RuYVEN, Secty. 

Which being read in Court, Burgomasters and Schepens say that is con- 
trary to the Instruction, he not bringing with him his instructions, and that 
Burgomasters are thereby deprived &f their authority. 

The Heer Director-General reading the Instruction of the Heer Schout, 
says, that by the first rank remaining to the Schout, he understands the 
presidency. 

The Heer President suge-ests that the instruction of the Heer Fiscal! also 
directs that he shall preside in the Court ; yet, however, the presidency 
remained with the Burgomasters, of which they were now deprived. 

Whereupon, the Heer General says that such was connived at by the Di- 
rector-General and Council. The Heer Director-General says that he is 
content if the Heer Schout will desist from the presidency granted to him 
inferentially to-day, until such shall be decided by the Honble. Lords Ma- 
jores, conformably to the above arte. 

Whereupon, the Heer president states that the College concludes that 
the Heer Schout shall co-operate in the nomination for the present fme, 
and desist from any further, unless it be otherwise decided by the Honble. 
Lords Majores. 

The Honble. Director Genera! and the Heer officer are satisfied there-

each other, by night, and at unseasonable times, at the house of Hendrick 
Hendricksen Obe, and in the street, according to proofs produced thereof, with 
costs. 

Defts. deny it; Jeremias Janzen acknowledging that he had threatened 
Marten Van Waart, but did not strike nor assault him- 

Burgomasters and Schepens having seen and understood the Heer offi- 
cer's demand, and the produced declarations, find that Defts. committed 
great insolence, noise and uproar, by night, and at unseasonable houi-s, as 
well at Hendrick Hendricksen Obe's house as in the street ; yes, so much, 
that many sprung out of bed, opened doors and windows, not knowing what 
was doing, which cannot, and ought not be tolerated ; — therefore condemn 
the Defts. for their perpetrated insolence, each in a fine of thirty-six guilders, 
to be applied as is proper, all with costs; charging them not to repeat it 
henceforward, or that it shall be provided against.

■Were, once, over twenty persons ; and fifty guilders additional for his ser-

there, with threats of violence. 

Deft, says, he denies it all, except that, once six persons sat in his house 
about half-past nine, and that Hans Vos was drunk when he came there, 
and drew his dagger, against which. Marten, the sailmalcer, resisted, which 
happened when the bell stopped ringing. 

Hans Vos entering, denies having been drunk when he imposed the fine 
on them, and having drawn the dagger; and he hath laid the fine three 
times. 

The Heer officer calls for a fine on the Deft., having called Hans Vos a 
liar in the presence of the Court. 

Hans Vos was asked if he did not know who sat there? Answers, he 
knew no one aslhey pushed him out of doors; but saw well that the house 
and table were full of people.

The Heer President states that Burgomasters yesterday had summoned 
the bakers before them, and that Hendrick Willemsen, baker, appearing, 
declared that one baker raised the price of the grain on the other,* and as 
heretofore, the flour was sifted from the meal, that the bran is now separated 
and bread baked from it, and that it is forbidden in Holland to bake any 
bran, but occasionally some bran was put through the meal, but no use 
made of it ; and that the baker left it frequently to their youngsters I'appren- 
tices) when now and again from home, who do not work it sufficiently, 
■whereby the bread is indifferently baked, and that on the contrary no baker 
in Fatherland leaves it to the boys to set the bread in the oven. 

Which statement being considered, Burgomasters and Schepens have 
concluded and resolved to make known the following Acte to the bakers 
by the Court Messenger: 

All bakers of this City are hereby ordered and charged by the W. Heeren, 
Burgomasters and Schepens, on the date hereof under written, forthwith, as 
soon as this shall be notified them, to bake both wheaten and white bread, 
good and suitable for the accommodation of the Burghers and Inhabitants here, 
as well as all others requiring it, if they have flour, on pain of not bein? al- 
lowed to bake for one year and six weeks, and fifty guilders fine in addition 
on those who are found to have flour and will not bake, and still tvventv-five 
guilders to be forfeited by those who have not baked good bread fit to be 
eaten. Done Amsterdam in N. Netherland, 17th 7ber, 1661.

Burgomasters and Schepens of the City Amsterdam in N. Netherland, 
having considered the papers, documents and vouchers, made use of on both 
sides in th-3 suit between Geertruyd Wingers, Pil'ff, in a case of defloration, 
with and against Geleyn Verplanck, Uef 't. In said case, PU'ff concludes 
that the Def't shall be bound to marry her according to promise, as he slept 
with her and she had procreated a child by \\\in\ and in case of refusal shall 
pay her, for hiving dedowered her, the' sum of six hundred guilders in 
Beaver-, one hundred like guilders for lymg-ia charges, and an additional 
hundred guilders per annum also in Be'ivJrs tor the maintenance of the 
child. Dei 'i acknowledges to have had cuT.al conversation with her, but 
denies having given her promise of marriage, Unrgomastersand Schepens 
having read and weighed all that is material, cctidemn the Deft Geleyn 
Verplanck to pay the Plt'fT for her defloration and lying-in expenses the 
sum o^four hundred guilders, half Beavers and half Zewant, the arrest re- 
maining so li^ng valid, and parties on both sides were condemned to main- 
tain their child and in the costs of suit. Thus done and adjudged in Am-

Plt'ff desires to know to what purpose she sets down the child he had by 
her at the place where he works ? 

Deft says because he gnve her no money. 

Pit ff says he has settled with her, and that a balance is still coming to 
her of one hundred guilders, which he will not give her except with the 
knowledge of the Magistrates. 

The W. Court order ihe PU'ff'to give the Deft th? hundred guilders, and 
the Deft is ordered to leave the jurisdiction of this City.

The Heer President states that some conversation was had some days 
since, that the Yachts trading up and down (ip en of) are indebled for 
wharfag-e for loading- and unloading at the wharf which ihey have not paid ; 
and as they are equally bound to pay as 'the Ships, asks if it were not 
advisable to request, by Petition of the Rt. Hon. Heer the Director General 
and Council, to order tlae Yachts to pay in place of Uie wharfage, each of 
Ihem one or t-wo voyages to Tappan, and bring from there for this City, 
their Yachts full of stone, in order to surround the City with a wall in course 
of time. 

Which, having been taken into consideration by Burgomasters, it was re- 
solved in the affirmative. 

Geertruyd Wingers demands execution on the judgment which she had 
against Geleyn Verplanck, in date first October, 1661. 
Bailiff was authorized to put these in execution.

The Heer President slates that there was -ome talk yesterday regarding 
the Bakers, and that it is Ordered by the Honhle. Director General and 
Council, that there must be baking twice a week; then, whereas, they 
complain that they ought to be obligated at this lime in consequence of the 
purchase of the grain, it is necessary, therefore, 1" deliberate, solhal neither 
the bakers on the one side, nor the Commonaltv on the other, be taken 



417 

short ; and in order to proceed with the matter, it was resolved to send for 
Hendrick Willemsen, baker, who, appearinig:, was asked how it came that 
the bakers bake no bread? To which he answers, that they pre afraid to 
buy grain for beavers, as they may suffer loss, giving reasons thereof ; say- 
ing further, no baker can bake his bread under a crown, to which it was ob- 
served, that the bakers can well bake the bread which they at present bake, 
for fifteen stivers; and gave Hendrick Willemsen, baker, to understand, 
that the higher the loaf was sold, so much higher was the grain enhanced 
in price. 

Burgomasters and Schepens decide that the bakers shall be ordered to 
bake good bread, and to keep continually large bread in the shops on pain 
of not being allowed to bake for one year and six weeks, and that a Placard 
be drawn up to this effect. 

Burgomasters and Schepens also mention, that they had spo'cen about the 
forestallers of what the Indians bring to sell, such as Venison, Maize and 
Fish, and that such ought to be prevented. 

Whereupon, it was decided to take into consideration the previously 
adopted Resolution of the Honble. Lords Director General and Council ; to 
wit, that no Indians shall bring any articles to any places except such as 
shall be ordered and appointed therefor. 

Burgomasters and Schepens order the Heer Officer to bring in what he 
has to object to the person of Jeronimus Ebbinck sitting in Court with the 
Heeren, Burgomasters and Schepens.

Silver money here into circulation among the public, and to Keep Seawant 
only as an article of Trade, and that the Honble. Heer Director General, 
asks the advice of each one hereupon. 

After putting the question, and some conversation over and hither, it was 
unanimously decided, first to write to Fatherland and demand a Mint, hav- 
ing that, to cry down the Seawant, and to fix the beaver at six guilders, and 
the Tobacco at four and a half stivers per lb., and that the Lords Majores 
would please to furnish some silver and silver coin for that purpose.

should get a flogging. To which he gave for answer:— that he should like 
to see once who would strike him; thereupo;i, catching him by the sleeve, 
he, in return, caught him by the hair ; whereupon, his brother came behind

Pltff complains that he cannot walk the sirrets in peace, in consequence 
ol the Doft. calling liiiu a Black pudding, and insulting hnu. 
Deft denies it, and says he does not speak a word to him. 

Mefaack Martenzen, brought forward, was, at the request of the Heer 
Officer, for further interrogation, examined by Torture as to how many cab- 
bages, fowls, turkies, and how much butter he had stolen, and who his abettors 
and CO operators have been. Answering : he persists by his reply, as per In- 
terrogalor.'es, that he did not steal any butter, fowls or turkies, nor had any 
abettors; being agaui set loose, the Heer Othcer produces his demand 
against the delinquent, concluding, that for his committing theft, voluntarily 
coniessed without Torture or chains, he shall be brought to the usual place

banished from the jurisdiction oi this f .'ity Amsterdam, for the term of ten

some cabbages from the garden of Pieter Jansen, and taken from the chest, 
which stood in his house, illegally, and without the knowledge ot Ihe owner,

vs. 
Waldewyn Vander Veen, Deft. 

Plt'fT says that because he refused to give the Deft acte of the judgment 
of the \V. Court, against Mighiel Tades, as he could not get any pay from 
the Deft, he has been abused by him as a rascal, and had snid to him — Had 
1 you at another place 1 would teach you something else. Demanding that 
defendant shall make honourable and prolitable reparation for the insult, 
honourable by acknowledging that he is sorry for having injured the Plt'll, 
begging forgiveness of God, Justice, and the Plt'tT; andpr fitably. by paving 
such a fine as the W. Court may, upon examination of the matter, con- 
sider proper. 

The Deft concludes for the nullity of the summons, inasmuch as he has 
not been furnished, according to the custom of Holland, with any grounds of 
action ; and the Deft being then informed that there is no such custom here, 
he requests copy of the demand. 

'J he Heer Officer as guardian with the Secretary', savs, that in conse- 
quence of the slander and affront offered by Deft to Plt'fT in scolding him as 
a rascal, &c., which affects the honor, being tender; also this Worshipfli 
and Hon"ble Court is not willing to be attended by a rascally Secretary, 
concludes for a fine of fifty guilders, to be applied at the discretion of this 
W. Court, that it may serve as an example to all other slanderers, who (or 
trifles and insignifiuaricies have constantly in their moulh curses and abuse 
of other honourable people, whenever things do not go just according to 
their fancy. All this with costs. 

Burgom'asters and Schepens allow Deft copy of the demand to answer 
thereunto at the next Court day.

[Acte for the Farmer.] 
Whereas there are divers troubles among the Burgery in regard that the 
Farmer of the excise on cattle takes more excise than comes to him, ex- 
ceeding the conditions on which the excise was farmed ; Therefore the W. 
Heeren, Burgomasters and bchepens of this City, with the knowh'dge and 
approbation of the Hon'ble Director General of N. Netherland, hereby order 
and charge the aforesaid Farmer not to take from the Burgers and inhabit-

any cattle, any more than one and one-half stivers per guilder or seven and a 
half guilders per hundred guilders, in such pay as the cattle are bought for ; 
it being well understood that the cattle sold and bought for beavers, in de- 
fault of beavers for payment of the excise, the beaver shall be estimated at 
twelve guilders in .Seawant, according to the fixing of the general ofiice, 
and no more.

Jemima Moreau, entering, was asked what induced her to insult Jacques 
Cosseau? Whereupon she said that Jacques Cosseau had arrested herself 
and her husband without cause, when they were coming to pay him, and 
that Cosseau had sold their grain without their knowledge, and had delivered 
them 1" ummer, instead of VVmter grain, with stricken measure, whilst they 
gave him^heaped up measure; was told that she abused him for a cheat, &:c , 
according to the declaration of .Jacques Fletchant, executed before the 
notary M. de Vas and certain Witnesses, dated V- May, ICtil, which she 
denies; was told that according to the declaration of Prancois Gee, made 
before the abovenamed De Vas ami certain Witnesses, dated JVjay l.-ith, 
Kitil, she had said that Jacques Cosseau had sold her corn without her 
knowledge, but that she did not complain thereof, as he gave her a good 
ace. thereof to her satisfaction ; which she also denied. 



425 

Jacques Tosseau, entering, was told thnt he hail but one declaration, set- 
ting forih that he had been slandered by Jemima Moreaii ; whereupon, he 
gave for answer, though he had no witnesses, the papers and documents of 
his party are evidence sufficient, confiding himself to them ; produces cer- 
tain declarations which some Frenchmen had sent hira without havingasked 
it. 

Jemima Moreau was asked what she had to say against Jacqnes Cosseau, 
inasmuch as she says, People know well what Jacques Cosseau is— where- 
unto she answers, that he is a-Frenchman, and that he presumes too much ; 
and was asked, why she railed so strongly against him, and if she had any 
thing to say against him? Answers, No — and was angry that he had ar- 
rested her and her husband. 

Parties entering, Jemima Moreau is asked, in presence of Jacques Cos- 
seau, inasmuch as she says, that she has nothing against Jacques Cosseau, 
why she collected a mob about his door? 

Answers, as they spoke French to one another, every body stopped, and 
she did not collect a mob. 

Jacques Cosseau declares, that for two years he had shown her and her 
husband as much favor as to any one, and had last year advanced her over 
a thousand guilders; and speaking to her husband for payment, as he had 
tobacco, he enquired the price, which he fixed higher for him than he gave 
to others, and that her husband .said t,o him — If you do not take the tobacco 
for this price you must look whero you can get your pay; so that he was 
obliged to take the tobacco, on which he suffered considerable loss. 

Parlies again coming in, said Jacques Cosseau was asked, if he was au- 
thorized to sell the grain? Answers, Yes; was further asked, if he were 
willing to declare so under oath? Answers, yes— and gave them their 
grain m return to their satisfaction, according to the aforesaid declaration of 
Francois Gee, and no discontent was exhibited until a year and a half after- 
wards. 

Jemima Moreau acknowledges that her husband had allowed Jacques 
Cosseau to take three skepels grain for his pi'ofit. 

Burgomasters and Schepens having heard parties, and read, and consid- 
dered the papers, documents and pleas which they had on both sides made 
use of, and whatever was material, adjudge that Deft., Jemima Moreau, 
shall declare in presence of her party, Jacques Cosseau, before the W. 
Court, that she can say nothing of him but what is honourable and honest, 
and to pay besides to the poor of this city the sum of twenty-five guilders, 
with costs of suit. 

Jemima Moreau entering with Jacques Cosseau. Jemima Moreau was 
made acquainted with the judgment of the Court, and told that she shall de- 
clare that she has nothing to say against the person of Jacques Cosseau, 
except what is honourable and honest, which she did ; and was further told, 
that the W. Court condemn her for the slander, in the fine of twenty-five 
guilders, and to pay the costs of suit. 

Jacques Cosseau says, he does not require from her the costs he incurred, 
but gave them to the poor of this citv ; and that she, Deft., shall remain in 
arrest until she have satisfied the iudgment. 
Wherefore, liurgomasters and Schepens grant her eight days.

intending to bring the grain to the Mill, and sat so long on the pigstye, be- 
hind Thomas Hall's, until he removed it thence.

Done at Fort Amsterdam aforesaid, in the Island of Manahatas, on this 10th 
day of August, 1630. 

The following Statement is given in relation to the Iron Railing around 
the Park, and the removal of the columns at the Southern end of the same, 
&c. : — 

In the year 1821 the Iron Railing was ordered to be continued all around 
the Park at an expense of Slo,62a. 

Under the columns of the principal gateway, at the Southern extremity, 
it is said the following articles were deposited, viz : — 

In the second column from Broadway, second course above the base, a 
tin box containing some coins, writings, &c., together with some of the 
twigs of the trees under which Napoleon Bonaparte stood at the battle of 
Waterloo. These, with some State documents, make up the list of articles 
under this column. Under the other were some newspapers — the New-York 
Gazette, containing an account of the tremendous gale ; Me.rcantile Adver- 
tiser and the Evening Post, containing the death of Napoleon Bonaparte, 
Croaker & Co 's Address, Park Theatre; the Advocate, Daily Adveitiser, 
American, Commercial, account of the death of George IV. ; Neiv-York 
Journal, Boston Sentinel, death of the Queen of England, all in a lead box; 
William Faff deposited tin box containing coins; Dr. D. Hosack, history; 
William Maxv/ell, tin box, containing the names of officers, civil and mili- 
tary; E. Williams, President Mechanics' Society, its charter, by-laws, &c. ; 
and in a tobacco box, a cent and a half cent — the box was given by An- 
thony Steinbeck. "Esq.; small flag, by Jackson Baggot; a cut-glass tumbler, 
copper coin, medals of New-York African Society; Dr. Mitchell, a large box 
of coins, &c. Drawing of steamship Fulton, in a leaden roll, about a foot 
long ; Address delivered by Dr. J. S. Mitchell ; Stephen Allen, Mayor. 

In the year 1847 it became necessary to alter the Southern extremity of 
the grounds, whereby the columns above alluded to were removed, anl 
the remains of the articles deposited at that period were taken therefrom, 
under direction of Alderman Crolius, the indefatigable Chairman of the 
Committee on Public Offices and Repairs. Some of the articles were in a 
fair state of preservation, but many others w^ere not discovered. 

It will be remembered, that upon the top of these columns a large Ball 
was phiced on each, which were obtained by one Mr. Mazanna, a Greek 
Pilot, who was with Commodore Nicholson, in 1817 and 1818, at the Island 
of Rhode, in Tinkey. 

These Balls were procured from Thebes — they were such as were fired 
from their large mortar brass pieces. The Turkish authorities at that time 
objected to the Commodore's taking them away, their knowledge of the 
U. States at that period being somewhat limited ; but on the representation 
made by Mr. Mazanna, to his countrymen, thev assented ; these Balls 
have been ordered to be placed in the columns of Union Square. 

This Greek Pilot became so much attached to Commodore Nicholson, 
that he left his native country and came to this with the Commodore, and 
has resided here ever since.
