rvftfiviHl at Fort Washington, and was also buried at
Trinity yard.
.? It may be proper to state that these facto are de
l-Wed partly from the History of the County of York,
by A. J. Gloasbrenner, Esq., (uow Kergiuut-at- Arras
uf the Senate of the United States,) and partly from
the )>a)>er* and reminiscences of the old veteran,
who, in the early days ot' the writer, was wont to re
flate the story of his buttles, and to "shoulder his staff
j?nd show how Holds were won."
? TV the soldier the last resting place of his comrade
is consecrated by the memory of the trials, the con
flifis, the sacrifices and the sufferings which they
h?e, shoulder to shoulder, encountered, He feefs
tint his honor rests by that mound of earth, and
?list guard it from violation while life shall last,
tie bequeaths its care to his countrymen, as a place
of sacred memories, and never for a moment dreams
that future years may bring spoilers of the tomb,
<rho will forget their duty to the blood which ce
jneutcd the foundations of the republic.
T?(. Mexican war was prolilic in instances where
tfcr?e who fell were exhumed by committees sent by
their surving comrades, and received a soldiers
' burial at borne.
Permit me to relate a fact In this connection.
At the call for volunteers for the Mexican war,
Willhiin Eurich marched with bis company from
the town of York, and joined the Pennsylvania Re
giment. In the battle which occurred before the
walls of I'uebla, Kuri< h, with others of his company,
having charged close up to the Mexican lines, saw his
friend and comrade shot dead by his side. A su
perior force compelled them to retreat, but Eurich
paused , and shouldering his friend's body, was bear
ing it off to a placc of safe sepulture, when ft hall
Htrac.k hiiu, aua the brave fellow sank in death by
the body of his mucbi. ved friend. Eurich was the
grandson of Michael Enrich, one of the captured
soldiers of Port Washington.
1 Shall the stern heart nud rough nature of a soldier
beat with so hallowed a feeling, and shall the
citizen, the merchant, and the legislator repudiate it?
y>hall it be said that the city of New \ork dese
crates the graves of her defenders, and, at the
bidding of the money-god, scatters to the winds the <
allies of the soldiers ot liberty?
These patriot soldiers, who now repose in the i
churchyard of Trinity, died far from friends and
home. They laid down their lives in their youth
They left no sons to speak for them. Their silen
?lost cannot plead to yuu for rest.
ft, therefore, becomes my duty and privilege to
address you.
I was born where they were fo>rn. Their friend
were iny friends, and mv early days were fnmilia
with the green hills wfiich they fast looked upon
when thev marched to defend your city.
v My earnest pet ition to the Common Council of the
city of New \ ork is. that the remains of these mar
tyrs of our Independence may be left in peace in
the graves where their comrades laid them.
Respectfully, J. Barnitz Bacon.

{('?{>!/ of a letter from hi* Himorthe Recorder to Al
dtrman Francis, dated)
Nkw Yokk, May 29, 1853.
Dear Sir: ? 1 did not receive your note mentioning
a meeting of the committee of your board , in rela
tion to Trinity churchyard, until after the time de
.stgnated. It is painful to me to discover that re
newed efforts are making to desecrate that holy
ground, for there lie multitudes of fee dead, includ
ing relatives, connexions, friends and ancestors of
..almost every family of long standing in our city, in
cluding, too, many of those who died in that strug
gle the success of which established those mighty
principles and institutions of human liberty from
which flow the happiness, the blessings and prosper
1 Hy of tliis country and its people.
I have not examined the papers connected with
the present application, but should like to do so the
moment 1 can obtain sufficient time from my other
duties. I understand that it is the same, and, with
borne few exceptions, by the same leading persons
who took an active part in the applications made in
1846 and 1847, which, I believe, in effect, was to
make a street in continuation of Pine street opposite
to it, through Trinity churehyard ? the north part
58 feet 11 Inches wide on Broadway, and 55 feet 8
inches on Trinity place, and to be continned to
Greenwich street, opposite Albany street, 50 feet
wide. The street proposed, on its northerly side on
Broadway, would approach to within 40 feet of
Thames street, which is 20 feet 1 inch wide on
Broadway and 21 feet 2 inches on Greenwich street,
and, by a diagonal line, would be within 58 feot 8 ,
inches of Thames street at Greenwich street.
The gronnd, as I understand, has been employed ;
as a cemetery since 1676 ? the north part for all de- 1
nominations, confirmed by deed from the city in 1
1708. Originally, that part was a gully about 16* I
feet deep: and successive surfaces from the original
one, by successive filling to the present surface, nave !
^ )?4eu used for interments, until, in truth, the land
chiefly for the whole depth is now composed of hu
man ashes.
To accomplish the desire of the applicants it would
be necessary to remove the remains of a vast nuntbe
of persons.
I see no advantage in recapitulating the argument ..
used on the former occasions in this letter, but so
licit you to have the kindness to read the message o
veto of Mr. Havemeyer, the Mayor in 1846, made on
' the 11th of May of that year, and received in th
Board of Assistants, and the report of the commit
tee of the same Board, made on the 22d of March
1847. (Doe. 33 of that year.)
' The truth of the views of that committee we are
bow, I think, in some respects, realising. The sale
of the graveyards and churches, and removal of the
dead in various parts of the city, and the closing np
of those green and venerated spots by covering them
with buildings, have deprived us, to a large extent,
of what may be regarded as necessary openings for ;
ventilation ; Hay, more, have removed so much of the
moral influence which religious worship carries with
it, that vice and crime in the lower wards of the city i
have been deprived of one of their material preven
tives. The idea, no doubt, has its opponents, but I
think examination will prove its truth.
Besides, I am interested in the measure, because I
have twenty-two relatives and connections lying in
that portion of the yard. Some of them were in
terred previous to and some since the revolution. A
headstone of one who died in 1762 is yet extant.
We are a family of Huguenots. Our ancestors,
to escape persecution and oppression, fled from com
fort and good condition to this country ? when here
it was almost a wilderness ? and met loneliness and
poverty. They did this for conscience's sake; and,
to worship the Deity according to their tenets,
would walk on Saturday night from New Itochelle
to this city to their church, and return on Monday
morning.
The French church in Pino street, to which tliey
once went, and its graveyard, have, as well a.s oth
ers, been sold for money, and the remains of the
congregation there inteired been taken up and car
ried away.
"Generations of this family lie in Trinity church
yard, and it is now impracticable to separate their
'ashes from the earth which surrounds tliein. Such
is the case with thousands of others.
One of the family is Peter V. Tilyou, who died in
1840, at the age of ninety-one ? the individual of the
body-guard of Washington who, it is said, on the
entrance of the American army into this city, at
the close of the war, took down the British and run
np the American colors, at the spot where is now
the corner of Grand Btrcet and the Bowery. He,
when he heard of the application in 1846, before his
.death, to open the street through the cemetery, re
monstrated against the act in the newspapers of the
day, and exclaimed that when he and his comrades
were fighting the battles of their country, he little
thought he would ever live to sec their bones s
Mattered, and that he had a father, a mother and
. wife, and ten brothers and sisters, lying there.
The disturbance of the dead Is a revolting act,
only excusable by extreme necessity. The instincts
of nature and the behests of the Almighty forbid it.
The abode of the dead is consecrated? is sacred in
the eye of all nations, and linked as this home of a
mighty nation of the past is. by tradition, relation
ship and recollection, to nearly all the older families
of this city? beautiful, though solemn in its appear
ance and inspirations ? can it be, that any considera
tions short of vital necessity can warrant its being
broken into?
But enough; excuse these remarks: they are in
voluntarily drawn from me on thinking over the
i matter. If- you will inform me when you shall have
your next meeting, I will endeavor, though I may
? not be able, to be there. Rhould I not, Ipray you
take the grounds of my opposition into considera
tion. Very respectfully yours, Ac.
L Alderman Francis. P. R. Tillou.

TRINITY CHURCH-YARD.
Jtepmt of the Special Committee in the Board of As
sistant Aldermen, Marrh, 1847, to t chom teas re
ferred the resolution in relation to opening an exten
sion of Albany street to Broadway, through Trini
ty Churchyard, adverse to the same:
The Hpccial Committee to whom was referred the
resolution In regard to the extension of Albany
Hreet to Broadway, through Trinity Churchyard,
respectfully report, that they have examined the
matter in all Its various bearings, and in order to
obtain the opinion of those interested therein, the
, applicants and remonstrants, as well as the people
?t large, many of the latter of whom regard the
ground through which it is intended the street shall
be opened, as sacred, your committee have held
public meetings, and given audience to all who
might come forward to sneak in favor of, or in oppo
sition to the measure. The subject has been ably
and thoroughly discussed at such meetings, and
your committee have derived great information
from the different discussions held before them, and
have maturely cousideied all the arguments ad
vanced on both sides. Yonr committee have also
examined all the documents which have been re
I ferred to, or placed before them ? have ptrnoitllj
| im-jwcted the ground through which the proposed
: owning or extension would pass. uud hare mode all
I such other examinations, inquiry and research, as
appealed to b? material or useful to the end abov<*
mentkred.
J The stieet proposed commenced ou Broadway,
fm - a i'ue with I'ine street, forty feet south of
I 1 name* street; is fifty-eipht feet eleven inches wide
i on Broadway, and is continued until it strikes Trini
ty place, forty-six feet one inch south of Thames
street, where it becomes gradually diminished in
width to fifty-three feet eight inches. It is then con
tinued. commencing on the west side of Trinity
I place, fifty-three f< et four inches south of Thames
street, and is then- fifty feet in width, and is con
tinued to Greenwich street, which it strikes partly
I iu a line with Albany street, fifty seven feet eight
inches south of Thames street, where the width is
' diminished to forty-nine feet ten inch***. The block
] from Broadway to TrUiity place is in length ubout
, two hiu dred and flfty-fjx feet, and the block from
i Trinity place to Greenwich street about two hun
J dred una thirty-five feet.
j The petitioners in thi? matter complain that they
j have no thoroughfare from the North to the East
I river, and that tor the want of one they suffer much
in the whiter time, and are obliged, on account of
1 the steepness of ascent in Rector and Thamea
streets, and the narrowness of the latter, to cart their
goods through Marketfield street or Battery place to
1 .Broadway in order to reach the east siae of the
i city; but it appear strange to your committee that
the merchants and others doing business on the
] east side of Broadway, and who carry on the chief
; part of the business which is done below Liber
ty street, make no demand weatever for such an
opening. Many of our European packet ships
j have their berths iu the North river, above,
I below and about the dock at the foot of Albany
! street, in which ships large cargoes of goods are im
[ ported by merchants in Pine, Wall, Cedar, Water,
Front, Pearl, South, Broad and Liberty streets; and
many transient ships also land their cargoes in the
region afore mentioned; but your committee have
not heard of any person doing business as an im
I o ter on the east side of Broadway who desires or'
is in favor of the proposed extension of Albany
street. Moreover there are more streets running
m in Hroudnay to the North river than to the Earn
ivtr already: for instance, on the cast side there
a e Maiden lane, Wall, Pine and Liberty streets;
and on the west within the space there are Rector,
Thames, Cedar, Liberty and Ctyurtlandt streets ?
r>< m which it appears there are live openings from
Headway to the North river, and onlyjfour from
that great thoroughfare to the East river; and yet
we htr.r no complaint from those engaged in busi
ni ss on the ca-t side about the want of a passage
from one river to the other, though they are in num
ber as twenty to one compared with those on the
west side. The actual necessity, therefore, of ex
tending Albany street in the manner proposed is a
matter of doubt; and to run it through the time- j
honored cemetery, which stands as a barrier to the 1
completion of the project, the petitioners must prove
that the necessity is extreme ? that the contemplated
opening would be a great public benefit, and that
they are actuated by no other motive than the pro
motion of the public good.
That section of Trinity Churchyard through
which the contemplated street must pass is the
most ancient cemetery in this city, and probably in
this country. It was established by the Dutch on
their first settlement, and as a burial-ground it is
nearly a century older than the other sections of the .
yard.* It was originally a valley about thirty feet >
lower at its extreme depth than the present surface, ;
and has undergone successive fillings, as the density I
of interments rendered it necessary, to raise the
land until it reached the present surface; so that the 1
earth now, to a depth of several feet below the
original, and thence to the present time of inter
ment, is in trnth tilled with human remains, or
rather composed of human ashes. The bodies buried
there were those of many thousand persons of several
generations, and of all ages, sects, and conditions,
including a large number of the officers and soldiers
of the revolutionary war, who died while in British
captivity, and almost every old family that is or ever
was in t his city has friends, relatives* or connections
lying there.
Vour committee are of opinion that this burial
place is pecidiarly entitled to the protection of our
authorities, and they cannot but think that if it be
invaded and desecrated, not another cemetery in the
city is safe from the spade of the innovator. Its
claims to respect are as follow: ?
First ? For its antiquity: this portion of it being
nearly a century older than Trinity Church itself, !
and the burial-place of the city when first founded by !
the Dutch, and laid out by them just beyond the !
city wall. !
Second ? It has always been emphatically the city
burying- ground, without reference to religions sect
or condition, and was deeded by the Common Coun
cil of the city to Trinity Church, April 22, 1703, con
ditioned that it should continue to be used forever as
a general burying ground, (the price of interment
being fixed at five shillings for an adult, and two
shillings and sixpence for a child under twelve years
of age, shows it to be the poor man's resting place,)
and Trinity Church bound to keep it in good fence,
repair aud condition. In fact it belongs to the peo
ple generally of the city, the church aioresaid being
merely its guardian, and absolutely and incvitably
bound in conscience to protect it.
Third ? The immense number of interments, par
ticularly in that part of the city now sought to be
tumed into a highway, which alone is estimated to
< out a in the remains of between thirty and forty
tlior.. jind human beinp ; embracing, as aforesaid,
many of our most distinguished citizens and patriots
of other days.
Fourth ? The parties who were interred in this
spot: ? During the time this city was in possession
of the British troops, the American prisoners who
perished by thousands were all thrown in trenches
into this very gronnd, and as soon as the city was
evacuated, were, by Trinity Chnrcli, given in that
place a decent sepulture .where tombstone and tablet
still mnrk the spot in which many a revolutionary
officer lies buries. Your committee, therefore, feel
assured that hardly an American citizen can be
found who would hesitate a moment to declare that
it must be an urgent, nay, a dire necessity, that
would justify the scattering of the ashes of tnose so
deservedly dear to us, who are now enjoying the li
berty and happiness which they laid down their lives
to secure.
Filth ? When the Common Council on the 22d of
April, 1703, as before mentioned, conveyed this
piece of lund to Trinity Church, describing it then as
un ancient burial place of the city, and conditioning
that it should continue to be so used for that pur
pose to the end of time, did they not guarantee un
der the solemnity of the city seal, to all who were
subsequently interred there, that they should there
continue to repose for ever? A question here
arises, us to whether or not th<* Common Council
can, by their own act, legally take away those rights
which they have so solemnly declared should never
be infringed, and on the faith of which declaration
and assurance so many paid for that ground in which
they now repose in the deep sleep of death; but it is
a question which requires not much ingenuity nor
the aid of counsel to answer in a manner satisfac
tory to all who arc not peculiarly interested in the
extension of Albany street. Apart from " the ques
tion," however, do we not take great pride in our
magnificent city, and in the integrity of her seal,
which has never yet been violated ? And shall we
not continue to preserve it as pure and unsullied as
the ermine of justice itself ? As servants of the
people, it is our bounden duty to keep the faith of
^the city inviolate, and that aione should prompt us
to deny the prayer of the petitioners; but your com
mittee have other reasons to offer why their prayer
should not be granted.
It appears that the application now under consid
eration is supported by one hundred and twenty
three persons; of whom fifty-three are represented
as owners of property interested, and the remainder
as lessees, pucket-owners, and persons who do not
define the position and capacity in which they apply:
That is opposed by upwards of sixteen hundred per
sons; tlmt is to say one hundred and thirty, includ
ing Trinity Church as owners of the property in in
terest, and the residue as relatives of tne dead: That
such of the applicants as appear to be owners repre
sent altogether about, but not exceeding, seventy
one lots; that such of theopposers, including Trinity
Church, as appear to be owners, represent altogether
about, but not exceeding, twenty-nine acres; or, at
twelve lots per acre, three hundred and forty-eight
lots; and at sixteen lots per acre, (which is the cor
rect estimate, as the land is exclusive of streets,)
four hundred and sixty-four lots: in addition to
which are the large numbers of the dead lying there,
whose interest Is not only represented by the chnrch
aforesaid, but by the immense nnmber of their rela
tives And friends.
Your committee, although it is rather beyond their
duty, seeing the opening or extension of Albany
street lo Broadway, through Trinity Churchyard, is
the subject of their labors, begs leave respectfully to
suggest that the widening of Thames street from
Broadway to Greenwich street would make a much
better thoroughfare than the one desired by the ap
Slicants, inasmuch as the street proposed by them
oesnot average fifty feet in width from Trinity
place to Greenwich street, whereas the widening of
Thames street would give a width on Broadway of
sixty feet one inch, and on Greenwich street, gradu
ally widening from Broadway down, seventy-eight
feet ten inches. This would not only make a hand
some street, but would obviate the necessity and
quell the desire of having another cut through and
running parallel with it only forty feet distant. The
petitioners allege that this would be too expensive;
but your committee are of the opinion that if it tie
absolutely necessary for the public good that a new
I street be opened in that quarter, those interested
' would rather pay double the amount of their own es
timates than disturb the ashes of the patriotic dead
, entombed in Trinity Churchyard. The widening of
I Thames street would, in the opinion of your commit
tee, answer a better purpose than the extension of
Albany street, inasmuch as it would be a great deal
wider, and, of course, much easier ascent from
Greenwich street to Broadway. Your commits
might also suggest the opening and extension of Ai'
tsuiy street to Trinity |>laoe and tike widetrn ? of
Thame* street between Broadway and Trinity plaoo
by the removal of those buildings on Thames street
opposite the City Hotel; by which means Albany
street ronld be brought within the gorge of an inlet
to Broadway, and the necessity of cutting -through
the chambers of the dead be entirely obviated. How
ever, an your committee are not empowered to report
in more than one case, it is proper that they contlne
themselves to their legitimate duty.
Your committee ate of the opinion that thepraver
of the petitioner* ought not to bo granted: 1. Be
cause it is manifest that a large majority in amount
of those who will be interested by assessment for
benelit and award for injury are opposed to it. By
the law pt 1830,* it is in substancc declared, that on
the application to the Supreme Court to confirm the |
report of commissioners of estimate and assessment
being made, in case such majority shall appear and '
objet to further proceedings, the proceedings shall I
be discontinued ? and your committee have no doubt
that the Common Council, in considering this appli
cation, are bound to be governed by the same rule;
for otherwise they would wilfully subject parties to
certain though useless and unjust expense and in
jury.
'2. Because the contemplated street would be a
deformed one of different widths, while Thainea '
street, widened as hereinbefore recommended, will
expand gradually and bv regular lines on both sides
to Greenwich street, where its width should be the
greatest, as it will be, and would present an elegant
improvement.
1 Because the law of the 11th of April, 1842, t iu
effect , declares the act by a church or religious cor
poration or its officers, of removing any human body
or remuins from any burying ground, for the inter
ment of which compensation shall have been receiv
ed, with intent to convert the ground to any other
purpose, without the consent In writing of three
fourths of the congregation or society, u misde
meanor, and subjects the offender to tine and impri
sonment. The spirit of these laws cannot be mis
taken. und none will doubt who have examined the
sul joct.thnt it is in accordance with the feeling* and
sentiments of the whole community, and of i "
whole nation; and the Common Council cannot giv?
their offh ial sanction to an act so broadly a violation
of the statutes and of the rights and feelings of t :e
community, because it would be aid'ng men to c >ui
mit. in the name of the public, an art which the pal ?
lie have, by its laws, declared to be criminal. The
demoralizing i fleet of these desecrations is plainly
disc toted in the bold assertions made before yo lr
committee during the discussion of the subject by
those in favor of the proposed extension, that the
feeling against the breaking up and appropri iting
of cemeteries to secular purposes is " an obsole'e
idea;" and your committee believe that a compli
ance with the application now under coniideratton
will, upon the same principle of reason, give a tirm
ratification to the revolting sentiment. As conser
vators of the public morals, the Common Council are
bound to refuse their sanction to such a monstrous
doctrine.
4. Because the extension applied for it, against
public policy ; inasmuch as it would contract the
open space which Trinitv Church-yard aflbrds, now
not more sufficient for the necessary ventilation of
that part of the city. Besides that spot, the Bowling
Green and the Battery are the only places of the
kind in the First ward. How necessary, then, to
the public health it is to preserve Trinity Church
yard entire, and how injurious to contract or dimin
ish it ! That ground is susceptible of high and exqui
site emfiellishment as an elegant ornament. Linked
with so many endearing associations, so many in
teresting memorials, rich in its evergreens of' me
mory as well as of fact and reality, attached to the
magnificent Cathedral that stands within it, what
can be more healthful or beautiful.
Your committee consider that sound policy and
regard for the public health forbid that the proposed
opening should be made ; and that the ultimate
failure of the several previous applications to former
Common Councils proves that the design of the
applicants is radically objectionable. Your com
mittee will close their report by recommending for
adoption the following resolution : ?
Kesolve<l. I"hat it is inexpedient, improper, nn<l unne
cessary to extend Albany street to Broadway through
Trinity Churchyard, or that any street whatever should
he opened through or over that ground; find that the
prayer of the Petitioners he. and is hereby denied.
All of whieh i? respectfully submitted.
CHARLES WEBB.
New York. 1947. ISAAC B. SMITH.
1 cannot adopt all the reasoning of the foregoing
report, but from the evidence presented to me that
the ppeuing of Thames street would afford the ne
