In Speahiitfi of the Discover;/
anil Ej-jdovalion of the 1 lad
son, the Author says:
HUDOON EXPLORER THE GREAT RIVER ON
BEITEM DER 3.
The next thirty days were given to an
exploration of the Eay of New York, its
surrounding shores, und a beautiful sail
up the great river, which has ever after
boon called by his name. 1 {ringing the»
Half-Moon to anchor on the Jersey shore,
the natives came in from the surround
ing country, gayly dressed in tlu* furs
and featlmrs of the* forest. Launching
their light canoes they epiickly clustered
around the ship with a warm weilcome*,
and eager proposals fen* t rallie. Hudson
describes their habits and customs. The y
seemed to bo a happy community, living
upon maize and beans, and carrying with
them their reel copper pipes, with e*arth
en bowls, and tho over pre*se*nt elastic
lx)ws and shiiru fitone-]H>inteel arrow
They furnished tho Half-Moon with
plentiful supply of good oysters,
and beans.
It was tho loveliest autumn weather,
and Hudson was entranced with the*
nory around him. The* lofty J'alisaelevj
were clothed with "goodly oaks," grand
er than any ho had ever seen; and the
island of Manhattan, sheltered by
mighty forest, stretched down the east
ern side of the river. Away behind him
roae the green hills of Staten Island and
tho towering heights of Navorsink; from
tho north roiled down tlm glorious river,
which at llrst hu believed could only he
arm of the sen. Eut loosing the Half
Moon to a delicious sout hern hr
passed up the stream ; and when lu* found
how great a discovery he had made, su; he
il^ off 1 Yonkers, ho wrote that "it was as
f *J* p 11 lu I , , ui J®* tr<*d»len by the foot
[of man. And so he lloatcd on leisnr<»ly
till a fresh breeze swept, him by West
Point into the broader reaches beyond.
In tho afternoon of the 15th he came
in view of tho magnificent, range of the
Catskills, and as tho sun was sett ing be
hind thorn, he dropped anchor oil the
bold bluff on tho east of the river, where
a heautiful city called by his na
soon afterwords founded. The next, day,
at tho invitation of an aged chief of t he
tribe of River Indians, he went on shore
to receive their hospitalities. Hero he
found himself surrounded by every sign
of peace and comfort. The chief show » •< I
him to a large circular building made of
oak bark, with a high arched roof, which
was filled witli beans and maize, ami
stacked around stood last year's harvest,
enough to load three ships. A lead was
'prepared, and mats wero laid for the
guests. The young men had early gone
to tho woods with their bows and arrows
and soon returned with a quantity of
pigeons. Theao were cooked, and
tush of corn and beans were nerved in
red wooden IkiwIh. Hut Hudson would
not prolong his visit, and as ho was start -
ing for his ship the Indians, ono and all,
snapped their arrows in piec»*s, and e:u*;l
thorn into the fire, in token of friendship.
Traditions of that visit were long pre
served by tho little River Tribe, and the
stories aro still told to the children of
tho neighborhood. The navigator had
found a balmier climate than England,
or, above all, Holland, ever
river in Europe could match, in tho mag
nifiecnco of its flood and forest, ncenery,
tho lordly stream he had discovered. Tlm
soil was a miracle of fertility ; tho woods
wero haunted with game, and tho e
tented and friendly inhabitants had ad
ded to all theso attractions the char
the most abundant hospitality. ''Of all
tho lands," Raid Hudson, ''on which I
liavo ever set my feet, this is the best
for tillage."
lie describes the month ho par,sod in
the North River
light and strange surprises. And
may, for as tho short
must then have appeared, still clothed
with the unmarred beauty of nature,—
water, mountain and sky, all bathed in
tho gorgeous atmosphere of the Indian
summer,—it must have made a spectacle
of which even those of us who dwell here
to-day can form no just conception ex
cept by tho witchery of fancy, lint those
hulcvon days could not last forever; tho
Half-Moon had made profitable traffic,
ana sho was ready for sea.

THE EQUAL RIGHTS LEAGUE SESSION TER
TERDAY—A CHARACTERISTIC SPEECH —
AN IMPORTANT RESOLUTION
CURBED—THE ARGUMENTS A
GAIN3T REPRESENTATION.
I ho local report of the general proceed
ings of the Equal Rights League of IV
sylvania which assembled in this city yes
terday, appears elsewhere in to-days
Ragle. Those in attendance were the
representative men of the intelligence
and advancement of tho colored ]>eople
the Commonwealth.
After tho trans
action of general business, Mr. E« lward
Keys of Waverly, made a speech taking
the Republican party to task. The follow
ing is an abstract:
l ie said they had come hero to further
insist, upon t lm rights guaranteed to them
the ( '< institution and Congress dicing
given to them,
our friends
Wo havo Ixxm desert ed
• pretontod friends. The
freedom of tho colored people is only n
nominal thing. We insist upon 1.1 m« Re
publican party; upon our friends in both
parties, giving us free and impartial
rights. We need these lights for hotel,
school and railroad purposes,
publicans, at least; the Republic....
gan of our county, Luzerne», say that we
have* those* rights; that by the passage* of
the» Civil Rights Hill we will gain more
privileges than the whites. The speaker
contended that tho colored people hud
not the rights spoken of, and cited an in
stance; in his own case, where but yester
day he was shewn a smoking car to sit in
hough he* diel not desire to smoke, l»y
railroad brakeman, lie; said his con
stituency would stand by the action of
the* League, lie said it was hard to de
nounce the Republican party, we should
not denounce the* whole party for the de
linquencies of a few. Wo ask for an equal
fexiting, that is all, and we» ask that oui
»publican friends give»
speaker concluded by sayingthat, he aim
people asked for this as a right.
In a scrio3 of resolutions the Auditor
and the Surveyor General were endorsed,
but Governor llartranft w;
In conversation with several of the*
]e»ading dele*gatos an Eagle reporter wac
informe *el that tho League was not oxoet
a political organization but had be*en
e»all«»«l into existence for the* advance »me*n 1
education and refinement of tlm colored
people*. And that becausoGov. llartranft
was not endorsed it was no reason w hy
colored ixiople were not friendly to
him.

Thc. resolution providing for llio election
delegate.! to Bond to the Republican Slate
Convention at Harrisburg to-day excited
considerable discussion. I'roniinent among
gentlemen opposing this wore Messrs.
Aaron L. Still and J. Ii. Stratton, ol this city.
These gentlemen are citizens ol marked in
telligeneo, and have given this question a
very extensive consideration. They opposed
resolution principally on tho ground Ihn t
they had no desiro to create
ßeparato and
distinet organization out of tho league, anti
senti a delegation there, of eolored men who
would hu compelled in
stand outsldo and plead for

vnilion without a voice,

party at large in their delegate selections,
took up colored men with them and placed
them sidoby aide with the white Republicans

opposing delegates attributed tlio cause part
