MB. OKBKLBY'a WILL CONTBSTRD.
Nbw York, Dec lO.-At Whlto
Plains yesterday, the daughters of tbe
late Mr. Greeley, with a few friends ac
companied by cojmel, appeared before
the aurrogalo to offer for probate the
will of thei' father. Tbis will, was exe
cuted November 20th, 1872. It bad
been written by Mr. Greeley some time
ago, but was only presented to him for
execution a few hours before his death.
It gave all the property equally to bis
two daughters. At the saino lime coun
sel appeared before the surrogate to con
test this will, and offering In its slead
ona dated January, 1871. Tbo con
testants are Sam'l Sinclair, R. Manning,
Cbarlea Storn, tbe two Utter being
named as executors. The counsel for tbe
contestants then sa:d that he hoped op
ponents ol the will would acquiesce in tbe
will of 1871. He thought the will exc
cuted by Mr. Greeley befora bis death
did great injustice, inaimucb as it gave all
the properly to Miss Ida with the quali
fication tbat one half of it was to bn used
by her at her own discretion for tbe sup
port and education of her sister Gabriella.
Tbat some relations would be deprived
of tbe property intended for tbera. Tbe
counsel for the daughters thought theta
remarks uncalled for, and announced that
Miss Ida bad offered to assign to her
sister one-hulf of tbe property, also to
grant suitable annuities to relatives. Tbe
Mbses Orreley declined to consider any
proposals for a compromise, and regular
proceedings for the contest of tbo will
were issued on tbe ground of Incapacity
of testator to execute the will ot 1872.
Tbe firs witness was Miss Sampson who
testified that she became a witness to tbe
will on the day Mr. Grocly died. Mr.
Oteeley wa thon, a fiw hours before his
death, conscious and rational, A fter some
further examination of tbis witness, ad
journment followed. The will of 1671
gives tbe property to bis daughters, bit in
addition gives bequests to his relatives,
and a legacy equal to tbe value of a share
of the Tribune, to tbe children's aid so
ciety of New York.
Tbe colored people held public services
last evening at tbe Hullo Presbyterian
church, commemorative of the death of
Mr. Greeley. Addresses were delivered
by Uenry U. Garnet and Alex. Crumwell.
