nioenie.rit now leing pushed forward
with vigor by the heirs of what is known
5 the Waldron estate. It appear that j
in the year 1 04C Baron Resolvent Wal
dron came to this country irom Holland
with Gov., Siuyvceant In ISM Gov.
Stuy ves'int made a grant of all that por
tion of Manhattan iidaiid lyiug between
Eighty-second and One Hundred and
Ninth streets, and extending from North
to the East river, to Baron Waldron and.
two others. In consideration of this
grant twenty five families were to be
loca.ed on the estate, and a ferry estab
lished witli .he main land Within thtee
years. Tlie.ie conditions weie complied
ft'ith, but on -the Dutch being driven
from ixi'se.osion the settlers were dis
persed. In IGtlo, however, when the
Dutch had regained pos-sion, thei;rant
was renewed to ti:e same parties. Litile
seems to have been done in relation to
the estate until 1084, when Gov. Dougan
confirmed the iiant df Gov. Stiic-:-ai)t,
adding eighteen persons, making in all
twenly-one p:,rticip:tuts. Tliciu settlers
located their jaiuia and dwellings on the
high ground, and tlne of these whodis-

Twenty years since the meadow lauds
of Harlem were not considered worth
paying taxes for, and the land was looked
upon an comparatively worthless. Tlu
Tweed ring, however, recognizing the
value of the large tract of propeity lying
under water iu that neighborhood, un
dertook the work of tilling it in at the
expense ol the ity. Something like
l,:i.0 acres of valuable land were made
in this way, the title to which, it is
claimed, belonged of right to the heirs
of the Waldron estate. In 1870 the
Tammany ring had a bill passed by the
legislature bringing this land under tax
ation, and it was subsequently sold in
default of the payment of taxes, the
greater portion of it, as might be sup
posed, leing purchased by the members
of tho ring or their agents. The land
so made and sol I without title, is now
claimed to be worth $00,000,000, and for
its recovery the heirs of Baron Waldron
are now taking the requisite steps.
Considerable difficulty, of course, was
experienced in discovering the descend
ants of the original grantees; but by the
exertions of a few of those mojt actively
interesred in the movement the signa
turesof some 200 of the heirs, scattered
all over the country, have been obtained.
The majority of them have 6igued the
necessary papers and contributed the
expenses incurred in the movement.
While some of the heirs look upon the
recovery of this valuable property as ex
ceedingly doubtful, others express entire
confidence in the strength of their claim,
and are eager that the matter should Ihj
By tracing the history of the Waldron
family, it has been ascertained that
Baron Waldron, to whom the estate was
originally grauted, hail fire sons. Ono
of them, Samuel, had a sou, William,
whose third wife was Annctjc Meyer, a
granddaughter of Adolph Meyer, one of
the original grantees. One of the child
ren of this marriage was a daughter df
Margaret, who married Abraham Lent.
Abraham had seven children, viz.: John
Abraham, David Barkness. Peter Wal
dron, Elizabeth Bnnkerhoff, Cornelia,
Ann, and Maria. Peter Waldron was the
father of ex-Senator Lent, of this city.
David Darkness settled in Poughkeep
sic; Elizabeth married a gentleman
named Ackcrman, of Dutchess countyj
Cornelia married Abraham Shear. Ann
was the" grandmother of Judge Tappan,
and Maria married Cornelius EarleJ the
mother of Deputy Comptroller Earlc.
It will thus be sewn that Abraham I nt,
grandfather ol ex-Senator Lent, was the
great grandson of Anna Katrina, daugh
ter of Adolph Meyer, and Margaret "Wal
dron, his wife, was the great-grand
daughter of Baron Waldron, as well as
of Adolph Meyer.
Ex-Senator Lent, who with the Earle
family and that of Judge Tappan are
directly interested in the recovery ol
the Waldron estate, has gone to Califor
nia to procure the signatures of the
members of the family residing in that
State to the necessary docHsents. It is
stated that as soon as the coasent of
those of the heirs who are willing to as
sist in attemptiBg the recovery of the
estate has been obtained, steps will im
mediately be taken to test the right of
the present possessor of the property, a
sum of $23,000 having already been ap
propriated lor that parpose. JV. 7".

Emer.-on at Concord,
Unvailiiii,' the Minute-man's Statue at
Concord gave Jt-ilph Waldo Emerson,
the great American philosopher and poet
an opportunity to make a speech which
dates an altogether new departure iu
American speech-making. Nothing
could b further removed from the pyro
technics of Fourth of-July oratory than
the pure white light in which it dis
tinctly revealed a picture for all time
the facts of the "proud and tender
story" commemorated by the statue.
Expressions like these: "The sculptor
has. built no dome over his work, believ
ing that blue sky makes the best buck
ground;" 'It nppears-that the patriotism
of tho people was so hot that it melted
tho snow, and the rye waved on the 19th
of April;" "He who will carry out the
rule of right must often take his life in
his hand;" and "The thunderbolt falls
on an inch of ground, but tho light of it
fills the horizon," are such as none but a
poet of Emerson's calibre would have
used to relieve his terse and compact
historical narrative. Original and novel
as they arc, they will henceforth be
commonplaces of literature wherever the
English language is spoken and read.
Moreover, the keynote of the sentiment
towards our ancestors' British foes that
ought to predominate in all future
speeches to be delivered durinir the cen
tennial jubilee upon which we have now
entered was given by Emerson's laying
the burden of resjtonsibility for tho war
against the British colonics on "an
msaue King of Englaud" poor old
George the Third. As events proved,
oven His Crazy Majesty was, under
Divine Providence, our bcuelactor.
Above all, the memorable speech of
Ralph Waido Emerson at Concord was
distinguished by that brevity which is

Ahksbcry, 14, 4th Mouth, 1S73.
To James B. Miles, Secretary, etc:
Mr Dear Fiiiexd: It is eminently
fitting to connect the centennial anni
versary of the opening battles of the
Revolution with the growing sentiment
ot civilization that there is "a more ex
cellent way" of settling the disputes of
nations than the ordeal of war. It is
cheering to note the very gent nd favor
with which the plan of arbitration has
been received by statesmen and civilians
in this coantry nod iu Europe; but there
arc other signs of t"ie times well calca
lated to occasion sulfcitufc on the part
of every lover of peace. The menace of
danger now seems t come from the
Chutch of Christ. At this moment the
peace of all Europe is threatened by the
secret plots and monstrous public pre
tensions ot ccclesiaslicism. If war
comes in consequence, if the iairest harvest-field
of the world are made an arena
of battle, men who claim to be especially
the priests and representatives of the
Gospel oi peace will le held respoaMbkv
ot power and dogma, breaks the truce ot
God among nations, mokes its missioa
aries assassins, anil Bii-glea blood with
it wise of sacrament. It is high time
for the Christian Church to awaken to a
full sense of its awiui responsibility. If,
after the dreadial expene-ce 0 1,800
years, i. Jails to perceive the necessity of
ahaki-g itself clear of the barbari of
war, it has small churn upon the world's
respect and confidence. Its leaves are
ot forwte healing of the BaUosa.

Ah iBcIdtKt ! Charlotte C-shman'
More than fifty years ago, a boy, some
10 or 17 years of age, was at work one
afternoon on the old "Hingham Station
Packet," which will be remembered by
some of our citizens as for years occu
pying a berth at tbe head of the dock
where State Street Block now stands. It
was an aftcrnooa when there was no
school, and a girl, somewhat younger
than the boy alluded to, was passing the
half-holiday in play sear the store of her
father. Venturing too near the ede of
the dock, she missed her footing and fell
overboard. It being high water at tbe
time, she disappeared. No one saw her
fall, but, by accident, the lad noticed
some bubble in the water, and having
just before seen tbe little miss, on the
wharf, instantly took in the situation.
Springing into the water, he sueeeeded

Forty llttkt'lt ef Wheat I'er Acre.
For the past five years I hive averaged
foitj' buihrls of wueit er acre of the
finest quality, nlwuy-t losing overweight.
I think I am Mill galnlug every year, aud
attribute thin to the system pursued, and
csjtecially to keeping sheep. My rota
tion h corn, barley, w.th clover third
year, clover: and fourth year, plowed
down for wheat. I have never mu&ed a
crop of clover by seeding it with nurlcy.
It gives tho grass seeds it chance which
oat.s do not. I raise full crops or barley,
which do not interfere with the grass,
but I think barley rather helps by the
slight shading. After tho barley is cut,
the clover makes astonishing growth,
giving me stierior late parotic. Owing
to danger irom mice, I pasture it down
pretty close. My soiL is clay loam. I
plow down the rank cjover about nine
Inches givi it otic harrowing, then haul
out my manure ami. spread. This I plow
down shallow, as I consider it important
to have the fertilizer near tho surface for
the roots of the wheat plant. I use the
drill, putting in one bushel ami one peck
to the acre. Never had wheat hurt by
freezi ug. Praet ical Fa nner.
Farmers, grade up your tock; il you
do not feel able to buy and breed thor
ottghbred stock, breed your common
stock this spring to none but thorough
bred males. Secure the services of sonic
of the thoroughbreds ol your neighbors,
or procure one of your own from some
reliable breeder, and whenonco you have
a lot of grade stock cither cattle, horses
hogs or sheep jou will never raise
scrubs again, lor farmers raise stock for
the purpose ot making the most money
out of their farms, by feeding their crops
rather than selling the grain and hay to
dealers; then the kind ot stock that will
mature the quickest and grow the largest
is the most profitable lor ment; nno it is
now no longer a question, but a fact, that
the grades of our common stock crossed
with thoroughbreds arc more profitable
to Western farmers than raising scrubs,
while the first cost of grading up is
small, compared to the actual profits in
dollars and cents. Too many farmers
just here are penny wise and pound fool
ish; lx-cause they cannot get fine thor
oughbred males cheap as common stock
they don't like to make a start to make
the first outlay; but the world moves, and
our stock must improve with everything
else. Wettern AgriKultuntt.
Flower far Exhibition.
Many of our autumn dgtU arc held
too late for a fine ef hihlHKif flowers.
A friend at Bethlehem, New York, has
felt this inconvenience, and wishes to
rretard the growth of sorae leading varie
ties, so as to have then? in flower late ia
the season. Our plan is to sow annuals
we wish or fall exhibitions in a cold
frame as late as the middle of April. As
a general rule, they will be ready (o
transplant when the weather is dry and
hot, aud resort must be had to shade aad
water. A cool soil and plenty of water
will make a large- vigorous plant, and
retard the time of flowcriag, bo matter
how early the young plant is set oat.
An aster plant, for instance, trans
plaated from the cold frame or hot bed
tbe Sfth of June, into a light, poor soil,
will flower earlier than one set in a rich,
cool soil a month previous. And if, in I
addition to the rich soil, water is sup
plied t reel j during tbe whole season, the
earliest set plant will flower until frost.
A plant that has been allowed to stand
ia the hot bed or cold frame, crowded
with other plants, aad aot, perhaps, half
watered, sutures early, aad wilj. lower

size, cut ono eye in a piece, commencing
at the butt, and turn the tttU'r, a you
would in shapreiiing a pencil, leaving
the center portion lor the top eyes. I
prefer planting in checks as above de
critcd. If the setd is n new variety,
and you wish to make the mont ofTl7
then plant one eye in Plirrks llx'A fret
If you wiith to tnttke the most of your
ground, plant two or three eye in the
wide checks for largo spreading topi
like the f'omptnn Surprise, while those
of n medium or dwarf tops should be
planted in 'Axil foot check. The ground
being prepared, plant as described, and
cover noout lour incites deep with a
ridging plow, leaving tho soil n light as
possible. Just at the plnlits are coming
up, ps a seeding bush crosswise of the
ridged. This will sweep otf the small
weeds nnd lumps; by the next morning
you will sec splendid rows of potntoe-,
clean and nice. If you nre in a buggy
country, prepare for them by using Paris
green ami plaiter. Tho benefit the
plaster will be to the crop will pay for
putting it on. Buy the pure Paris green
and it will require but little, well mixed
with plaster, to "fir Vm." Plow first
time crosswise of the ridges, after which
cultivate the other way just as soon a
they are high enough to receive sufficient
dirt to cover the weeds. Alwnt twice
going through with the hilling plow will
lo sufficient. The last time, plowing
should be just Ircforc the potatoes set.
Should weeds appear In the hill, pull
them out. In this way I raise large
crops without hoeing. Keep the bugs
off, and you arc all right. George White,
Speaking of the old lcll of IndcjMrud

"Since tho lell was cracked It has several
times ltcen tinkered at, Id the effort to
make it sonorous once more. At one
time the scam was filled, we think, with
silver, or an amalgam of silver; but the
sound would not come back. They llicn
undertook to ream out the crick, causing
It to present ? less 'sharp and ragged

that it coald be made to ring like the

naturally, by no means successful, it be

say, that the vibrations ia the metal,
