Daniel D. Tompkins, fourth governor of New York, was born at 1807. 
the Fox Meadows, in the present town of Scarsdale, Westchester 
county, June 21, 1774; graduated from Columbia College 1795; 
admitted to the bar 1797; delegate to the Constitutional Convention 
of 1801 ; elected to the assembly of 1803; elected to congress in 1804, 
he never took his seat, for he was appointed July 2, 1804, to the 
Supreme Court bench to succeed James Kent, appointed chief jus- 
tice in place of Morgan Lewis, elected governor; governor of the 
state 1807-1817; in command of the third United States military 
district during the second war with Great Britain; vice-president 
of the United States 1817-1825; unsuccessful candidate for governor 
against DeWitt Clinton in 1820; delegate to and president of the 
Constitutional Convention of 1821; died at Tompkinsville, Staten 
Island, June 11, 1825, aged fifty-one years. 

The thirty-first session of the legislature began January 26, 1808. 
Dr. Alexander Sheldon of Montgomery, a supporter of DeWitt 
Clinton, was chosen speaker of the assembly. February 1st the 
new Council of Appointment, all followers of Mr. Clinton, took 
charge of the state's patronage: Benjamin Coe of Orange, Peter C. 
Adams of Green, John Veeder of Schenectady, and Nathan Smith 
of Ulster. The Council began proceedings by restoring Mr. Clin- 
ton to the mayoralty of New York and all his friends to the offices 
which they had lost the year before. March 18th the Council 
appointed to office three men who afterward became prominent in 


950 Annual "Report of the 

civil life in the state and nation: John W. Taylor, later speaker of 
the House of Representatives, and Samuel Young - , later speaker 
of the assemblv, state senator and unsuccessful candidate for eov- 
ernor against De Witt Clinton, in 1824 were appointed justices of 
the peace of Ballston, and Martin Van Buren was appointed surro- 
gate of Columbia county. The patronage of the state was thor- 
oughly revolutionized before the end of the year. 

The legislature that was elected in April met at the state capitol 
for a week's session November 1, 1808, for the purpose of choosing 
presidential electors. James W. Wilkin of Orange was selected as 
speaker of the assembly. A strong sentiment prevailed to instruct 
the electors from New York in favor of George Clinton for president 
of the United States, but in the end the electors were chosen without 
reference to their individual preferences. By the result of the 
general election James Madison of Virginia was chosen president 
and George Clinton of New York vice-president.

National politics had entered largely into the situation in New 
York during the campaigns of 1 809-1 810, the Federal party taking 
on new life from the supposed errors of the national administration. 
For the first time in a decade the Federalists controlled a majority 
in the Assembly, where William North of Schenectady was chosen 
Speaker. The session of the legislature began January 30th. The 
Federalists lost no time in selecting a new Council of Appointment. 
They labored, however, under one disadvantage, for their party was 
not represented by a senator in the southern and middle districts. 
As constituted, the Council was composed of two Republicans, Isaac 
Carll of Suffolk and Robert Williams of Dutchess, and Daniel 
Paris of Montgomery and Amos Hall of Ontario, Federalists. Mr. 
Williams eventually cooperated with the Federalists in their 


i no Annual Report of the 

patronage onslaughts upon their opponents. At the first meeting 
a number of dictatorial changes were made: Abraham Van 
Vechten of Albany was appointed attorney-general; Daniel Hale 
of Albany, secretary of state; Jacob Radcliff, mayor; Josiah Ogden 
Hoffman, recorder; John W. Mulligan, surrogate, and Cadwalader 
D. Colden, district attorney of Xew York. Theodore V. W. Graham 
was made mayor of Albany. Thomas J. Oakley of Dutchess, the 
son-in-law of Mr. Williams, was rewarded with the position of sur- 
rogate of Dutchess in place of James Tallmadge, removed. Wher- 
ever the majority of the Council could substitute one of their 
adherents for a Republican, the change was promptly made. Repub- 
licans holding office as judges, sheriffs, surrogates, county clerks, 
district attorneys, and justices of the peace were made to realize the 
power of this colossal engine and were ruthlessly removed, merit, 
fidelitv, ability counting as naught. 

With increasing confidence in their ability to elect a governor of 
their party in April, the Federalists on January 5th formally nomi- 
nated Jonas Piatt of Oneida for governor, and later Nicholas Fish 
of Xew York, a distinguished soldier of the Revolutionary war, for 
lieutenant-governor. One month later, February 5th, the Republi- 
cans, at a legislative caucus, renominated Governor Tompkins and 
Lieutenant-Governor Broome. The Republicans were successful at 
the April election. The following August Lieutenant-Governor 
Broome died, John Taylor acting as lieutenant-governor. 

Resolved (his Excellency the Governor and Mr. Carlh dissent- 
ing), that William Paulding, junior, be no longer adjutant general 
of this State and that a supersedeas issue accordingly. Resolved 
(Mr. Carll, dissenting), that Solomon Van Rensselaer be and he is 
hereby appointed adjutant general of the militia of this State.

Major Thomas Davis, of Rensselaer county, attended pursuant isn. 


to notice to answer to charges contained in a memorial presented 18- 
to the Council by Stephen Clark, complaining of Major Davis and 
Captain E. W. Wallbridge for having combined to procure him 
to be superseded as lieutenant in Colonel (Adam) Yates' regiment 
by false representations injurious to his character, on the last annual 
return of vacancies and promotions for Colonel Yates' regiment, and 
with improper motives. Major Davis denied having any agency in 
making the return alluded to by which Mr. Clark was intended to be 
injured in his rank and character, and Captain Eben W. Wallbridge 
appearing before the Council as a witness in his behalf declared that 
he made the return for the company of which he is captain for the 
year 1810, complained of by Mr. Clark, without any interference, 
advice or concert whatever, of or with Major Davis, and that he, 
Captain Wallbridge, was alone responsible for that return, and that 
he should be able to justify himself and maintain the correctness and 
truth of the said return whenever an opportunity was given there- 
for; whereupon it was Resolved, that the said memorial of Stephen 
Clark be dismissed as unfounded, so far as the same implicates 
Major Davis. 

Captain Wallbridge being consulted as to what time it would be 
convenient to answer to the said memorial in relation to his own 
conduct observed that any day next week would be convenient for 
him; whereupon Resolved, that the Council will on Monday, the 

1260 Annual Report of the 


25th instant, at eleven o'clock in the forenoon, at the Council room 

in the Capitol at the city of Albany, proceed to hear the parties in 
relation to the charges contained in the said memorial, so far as 
the same implicated Captain Wallbridge, and the said Captain Wall- 
bridge being present in the Council assented thereto, and was there 
personally notified to attend accordingly.

upon his complaint against the said Ebenezer W. Walbridge, and 

the said Ebenezer W. Walbridge not. having appeared on the said 

25th of March, nor produced any evidence in justification of his 

conduct, the Council postponed the consideration of his case until

military rank by unfounded and injurious imputations upon his 

military character, and in afterwards prevaricating with Lieutenant 

Clark and others about the said return and denying his agency in 

making the same was improper and degrading to Captain Walbridge

The historical session of the legislature of 1812 began January 
28th. In the assembly Dr. Alexander Sheldon, the Republican can- 
didate, was elected Speaker. The Council of Appointment, who 
were chosen February 1st, were all friends of De Witt Clinton, 
namely, William W. Gilbert of New York, Johannis Bruyn of 
Ulster, Henry Yates, junior, of Schenectady, and Francis A. Blood- 
good of Oneida. 

March 27th Governor Tompkins prorogued the legislature until 
May 2 1 st, because of proof that had come to his knowledge that the 
applicants for the six million dollar bank of America in New York 
city had used or attempted to use corrupt means to secure a charter. 

At the height of the tumult in the Republican party, in conse- 
quence of this act, the April elections were held, and that party 
accordingly suffered. The moribund Federalist party managed to 
secure control of the assembly by a small majority. April 20th, the 
venerable Vice-President, George Clinton, died at Washington. 
Two months later the legislature adjourned, and on June 18th, the 
Congress declared war against Great Britain. 





1284 Annual Report of the 


A special session of the legislature was convened November 3d 
for the purpose of selecting presidential electors. Jacob Rutsen 
Van Rensselaer of Columbia, Federalist, was chosen Speaker over 
William Ross of Orange. A revolt occurred in the assembly over 
the proposition that the electors should vote for De Witt Clinton. 
Martin Van Buren, who had been elected to the senate from the 
middle district in April, now displayed for the first time the tal- 
ent he possessed to a great degree for political manipulation. It 
was largely through his industrious and persistent efforts that a 
Clinton ticket was adopted on joint ballot, in spite of the recession 
of General Erastus Root and other prominent Republicans. 

Under the act of June 10, 1812, made necessary by the United 
States census of 1810, a new congressional apportionment was 
arranged by the legislature, the New York delegation now number- 
ing twenty-one, against fifteen under the act of March 8, 1808. 
From 1789 to March 23, iygy, the congressional districts were not 
numbered; from the fifth to the eighth Congress the delegation num- 
bered ten. By the act of March 30, 1802, the increase in population 
justified the increase in the number of the delegation to seventeen, 
which was maintained by the act of March 20, 1804.

It having been represented by his Excellency the Governor that 
from information received by him from Major General (John) 
Hathorn, that John B. Van Wyck, esquire, had tendered to him 
his resignation of the office of brigadier general of the thirtieth 
brigade of infantry of this State, which resignation Major General 
Hathorn had declined accepting. And whereas it appears from a 
variety of information received from persons residing in the county 
of Dutchess that the said John B. Van Wyck had for some time past 
omitted to perform the duty of a brigadier under an allegation of 
his having resigned the said office, and it appearing also from a letter 
which the Commander-in-chief has received from Captain Fyler 
Dibblee, that General Van Wyck had declared to him that he would 
not pay attention to a general order* appointing him president of a 
board of officers to settle rank between the said Fyler Dibblee and 
(Major) Gilbert Ketchum, and that he had not attended to such 
orders for some time past; therefore Resolved, that the said John 
B. Van Wyck be no longer brigadier general of the thirtieth brigade 
of infantry of this state and that a supersedeas be issued accordingly.

The regular session of the legislature began January 12, 1813. 
The same day the Council of Appointment was chosen, namely: 
Peter W. Radcliff of New York, James W. Wilkin of Orange, John 
Stearns of Jefferson, and Jonas Piatt of Oneida — all Federalists 
except General Wilkin, whose district, the middle, happened to be 
represented exclusively by Republicans. Although the new Council 
was extremely partisan in spirit, it displayed conservatism in its 
actions. It succeeded in lodging Federalists in every position that 
had been held by a Republican, but in the general displacements 
the friends of DeWitt Clinton were not overlooked. He himself 
was reappointed mayor of New York in spite of the protest of the 
member from that city, Mr. Radcliff. Thomas Addis Emmett was 
removed from the office of attorney general and was succeeded by 
Abraham Van Vechten of Albany. 

February 4th the Republican legislators in caucus renominated 
Governor Tompkins without a dissenting voice, but substituted John 
Tayler, of Albany, instead of DeWitt Clinton, for lieutenant gov- 


1420 Annual Report of the 

ernor. A week later the Federalists nominated General Stephen Van 
Rensselaer, of Albany, for governor and George Huntington, of 
Oneida, for lieutenant governor. 

The result of the April election was a severe shock to the Federal- 
ists, whose gubernatorial candidate was defeated by 3,406 votes, in 
spite of the assistance they had received from Republicans who were 
disgruntled with the national and jealous of the state administrations. 
They managed, however, to hold control over the Assembly by a 
narrow majority.

The thirty-seventh session of the Legislature opened at Albany 
January 25, 1814. James Emott of Dutchess, Federalist, was 
elected Speaker over William Ross of Orange, the Republican can- 
didate. The new Council of Appointment was chosen the same day: 
Morgan Lewis of Dutchess, Samuel Stewart of Saratoga, Elbert H. 
Jones of Queens, and Henry A. Townsend of Steuben. Messrs. 
Lewis and Townsend were the Republican representatives, Messrs. 
Jones and Stewart the Federal; the Federalists having been forced 
to select Mr. Townsend because there was not a Federal senator 
in either the middle or western districts. The most important 
appointment considered by the Council this year was that of Chief 
Justice of the Supreme Court. Chancellor Lansing had become

ineligible by the age limit and Chief Justice James Kent had suc- 
ceeded to the position. From this situation grew a tangle of politics 
that led to all sorts of complications and personal disagreements. 
Many of the Federalists favored the appointment of General Jonas 
Piatt of Oneida. But former Governor Lewis, to the surprise of 
many of his old friends, joined with Governor Tompkins in a move- 
ment to defeat General Piatt's ambition. They relied for reinforce- 
ment upon Senator Townsend, who though elected to the Council 
by the Federalists, had been originally returned to the Senate in 
1 810 as a Republican and who was regarded as Mr. Clinton's per- 
sonal representative in the Council. In order to complicate still 
further the situation and to show, if possible, to what extent DeWitt 
Clinton was intriguing in this judicial contest, Mr. Lewis, who had 
not forgiven Mr. Clinton for his antagonism to him while he was 
Governor, and for the part he had played in defeating him for 
renomination, moved in the Council the appointment for judge of 
the Supreme Court Richard Riker, who had been DeWitt Clinton's 
second in the Swartwout duel, and who had been a faithful and sub- 
servient friend from that time. Whatever the motive or the politics, 
the result was the defeat of Mr. Riker and the appointment of Gen- 
eral Piatt. 

At this session of the Legislature a bill was passed granting to 
Union College the sum of $200,000, in addition to former grants. 
Generous appropriations were also made to Columbia and Hamilton 
colleges, to the New York Historical Society and to other educa- 
tional and scientific institutions. 

An extraordinary session of the Legislature was called for Sep- 
tember 26th at Albany by proclamation of the Governor, in conse- 
quence of the burning of Washington by the enemy and the exposed 
condition of our State and the danger of invasion. Colonel Samuel

Young of Saratoga was elected Speaker. National subjects

The Republicans controlled both branches of the Legislature of 
1815, mainly because of the patriotic spirit they had displayed in 
the conduct of the war. The news arrived February 12th that the 
treaty of peace between Great Britain and the United States nad 
been signed at Ghent December 24, 1814. 

The regular session began January 31, 1815, and the following 
day the new Council of Appointment was announced: Jonathan 
Dayton of Suffolk, Lucas Elmenuorf of Ulster, Ruggles Hubbard 
of Rensselaer, and Farrand Stranahan of Otsego. No time was 
lost in removing every Federalist from office. Martin Van Buren 
was appointed attorney general as soon as Abraham Van Vechten 
was removed, an appointment that produced considerable discord 
in the Republican ranks. The schism in the Republican party was 
not abridged by the removal of DeWitt Clinton from the office of 
mayor of New York, and the appointment of John Ferguson, the 
grand sachem of the Tammany Society, as his successor, the change 
having been inspired by personal jealousy and resentment rather 
than from political motives. In July Mr. Ferguson resigned in 
order to accept the position of surveyor of the port of New York, 
and he in turn was succeeded as mayor by Judge Jacob Radcliff,

by Gerrit L. Dox of Albany. 

Febnfary -^ s E xce ^ enc y the Commander-in-chief having reported to the 
Council that during: the recess he had conferred on Peter B. Porter 


the brevet rank of major general of the militia of this State in appro- 
bation of his gallantry and services rendered as a brigadier general 
in the battles of Chippewa and Bridgewater,and having also reported 
the distinguished conduct of the said Peter B. Porter in the sev- 
eral rencounters which took place with the enemy at Erie, it is, there- 
fore, unanimously 

Resolved, that the said brevet be confirmed and that the said 
Peter B. Porter be and he is hereby appointed a major general in 
the militia of the State of Xew York. 

The Commander-in-chief reported that Jonathan Williams, 
esquire, late colonel of the corps of engineers of the United States, 
having rendered distinguished services to the State of Xew York 
in planning and erecting the fortifications thereof, and in the several 
defences of the city of Xew York without any remuneration or 
acknowledgment therefor, he had in consideration of such services 
and of his high estimation of the talents and virtues of the said 
Jonathan Williams, conferred upon him the brevet rank of brigadier 
general in the militia of the State, thereupon, 

Resolved, unanimously, that the said brevet be confirmed, and 
that the said Jonathan Williams be and he is hereby appointed a 
brigadier general in the militia of the State of Xew York.

The Commander-in-chief having laid before the Council an official 
communication from Brigadier General Oliver Collins, commanding 
at Sackett's Harbor, the 23d of October last, containing the fol- 
lowing report, viz: 



1538 Annual Report of the 

' I am extremely mortified that T am obliged to report to your 
Excellency Captain Obadiah Latham and Lieutenant Albion Smith 
of the One Hundred and Thirty-fourth regiment, commanded by 
Lieutenant Colonel William Stone, in the thirteenth brigade, as 
having disgraced their commissions by deserting their companies 
at this post. They practiced a shameful deception on me, by feign- 
ing ill-health and requesting a pass to get by the picket to enjoy 
the fresh air which I granted, with an express order to return the 
same day. Instead of obeying the order they packed up and left 
the camp altogether and took with them two soldiers. I received 
letters from them dated at Watertown, stating that they there waited 
my further orders and making an apology for their disobedience, 
upon which I sent an officer to arrest them. On his arrival at 
Watertown he enquired at the house where they said they were, 
but found they had not been there at all; they must consequently 
have false dated their letters, anticipating a pursuit. Captain Latham 
also wrote to his lieutenant (Shepard), to get the company dis- 
charged — if he could not do that, to come off with the men. 

" They have eluded my pursuit and prevented a trial — all I can
