? flic comer stone of n Methodist KptocopiJ church
was laid jester1 lay at Pibbs Ferry. As this was an
event ot great interest to t tie mtuiberL. of that par
ticular denomination, the ceremony was attended
by a large audience. Dobbs Ferry i? remarUbl#
both for the exeeedi iff beauty and grandeur of the
aeenery which su rround* it. and for the numerous
iucideou by which it is distinguished in our revolu
tionary history. The *ite chosen for the edifice i-* on
the summit of a hill which command* an extensive
view of the Hudson and the adjacent country. But
as the Re*. Mr. WAelj has d >ne it full justice, both
in iU history and t ';H^raphy, we will not say any
?lore on tho^ subjects.
Among the lar^e audience were the pupils of the
Sommerfidd M. E. Sunday School, who bore a ban.

Imjv. Mr. Bro>* n, of Yonkers, next made a prayer,
alter which the following interesting address was
delivered by Mr. Wakely:?
Auspicious is the duy and joyful tho occasion thnt
has summoned us together. We have met in God's
git.a? cathedral, in uat.ire's magnificent temple, to
lay the corner stoup of a new house of worship,
which, when completed, will be dedicated to the
worship of the great Head of the Cbnrch. There ure
so many historical associations that cluster around
this place, that give it such peculiar Interest, that
you will not be surprised if 1 dwell upon It a short
time. Romantic is the place; grand and picturesque
the scenery by woich we are surrounded. 1 do not
wonder that Washington Irving said, some time
since, " 1 thank God that I was bojn on the beau
tifvl banks of tbe Hudson." From thisehvated
position Tvliat a maguiUcent view. Yonder is tho
noble Hudson rolling on in majesty towards the
ocean. Yonder the Pallisades, heaven's great wall,
higher and stronger than the great wall in China.
Yonder are the beautiful mountains?nature's monu
ments. Here are beautiful glens and charming
dales, that give variety and enchantment to the
scene. Yonder is the old Vantassel House,
?reoted in 1650, now Sunny Side, tbe resi
dence of the author of the " Sketch Book." Yon
der is "Sleepy Hollow," where the celebrated
Ichabod Crane taught school, and whore the won
derful scenes described by Washington Irving are
said to have taken place. Yonder is Tarrytown,
where Major Andre was taken prisoner by those
noble young men, Paulding. V'anwart and Williams,
who loved their country better than gold?whose
patriotism was stronger" than their love for filthy
lucre. Congress testified to their worth by giving
them each a farm in this county, as well as a silver
medal. Their names are written high on the pillar
of immortality; they sleep in honored graves, and.
"tutHJgh being dead, they yet speak.''
How sweetly sink tbe brave to rent,
With all their country's honors blest.
We tread upon classic soil, that has been wet with
the tears and stained by the blood of patriot*. Pecu
liar Is th? location of Westchester connty. The Hud
son rolls on its west,while the eastern shore in wash
ed by the Fast river and Long Island Sound. In its
tosom is the Croton lake, formed by the Croton
river, which has been inverted from its channel, and*
mad* to pierce the mountain rind to bridge the gulf,
and carries into the city of New Vork its healthful
strewn, purifying the city and adding to the health
and comfort of the inhabitants. I<et as notice the
history of the place, Greenburgh, or Grninbargh
literally, signifies grain-town. When discovered by
the Dutch, in 1614, it formed a part of the
Indian territory of Wikagyl. There was an Indian
town here, called Weck^ueskeck, m^nuying the
place of the bark kettle. This wax the name of a
powerful tribe of Indian?, who had a large village
at the- mouth of the beautiful stream which descends
through the present village and flows into the Hud
sou, at the upper landing, called by the Knglish
Wikfrs Creek. The si'* of this ancient village can
be traced un the neighboring hanks by the numer
ous Indian shell beds, which in .some pUces arc
found to vary two or three (eet !a depth. Another
ind.'&n village occupied the site of Tarry town, called
\nn?b:konpr, a place of loaves or "rich foliage.
Sohooloraft says, "a ptece of elm?." Prom the bark
of the white elm the Indian manufactured his light
caaoe. As early as 1644, there were three en
trenched castles belonging to this tribe of Indians.
On? of these stronghold* was remaining in 1CG3,
and garrisoned with eighty warriors. The wars
between the Dutch "anil Indians were very
tjevere, and many of this tribo w ire cut off. Thoy
ttold a put of their lands to Petrns Stnyvesant in
164>. The next great sale of lands made by the
sachems of this tribe, was to Frederick Phillips, for
merly of Holland, then of Xew Amsterdam. This
purcWtc embraced thenortheast part of this town,
and a part of Mount Pleasant. He also made seve
re! o'her purchases of the Indians, which not only
covered the present town of Greenbuah and subse
quently formed a part of Phillipsburg manor.
These landa remained in the Phillips family until
1779, when they were forfeited to the State. Under
commissioners they were parcelled out for small
sums to the Vantassels, Van warts, 0 dells, Lawren
ces, Postn, Archers, Dykemands, Requas and others,
former tenants of the manor. Many of their chil
dren, and children's children, still reside here, and
their na mee are as familiar to you as household words.
The first independent elcctiou in this town was held
7th of April, 1788.' The descendants of the abori
ginal inhabitants were very numerous in this town
nearly a half a century after their Inst sale of lands
to Frederick Phillips. As Into as 177.1 the banks of
the Hudson were thickly populated by the Indian**,
particularly south of Tarry town. The wars between
the Dutch "and Indians were frequent and awfnlly
stvtre, and many of this tribe were cut off. Many
treaties were made and broken. After many years
of war . mtiider and bloodshed, the 30th of August,
l?4?, the chiefs of several tribes and of the tribe
residing here, Heated themselves, silent and grave,
hi front1 of Fort Amsterdam, before the Director
and having religiously smoktd, concluded in the
General and his council and the whole commu
nity, presence of the " sun and ocean'' a so
lemn and durable peace with the Dutch. Bat
why was this place called Dobbfi' Perry? We
answer, it derives its name from the ancient family
of the Doblis, who had long been settled here, and
aLo from the fact thut they were the early ferry
mt a. As early as 1693, there was living here Jere
miah Dobtn and his wife Abigal, both members
of the church at Sleepy Hollow. Thomas their
?on, was born on the manor in 1712. Jeremiah
Dobbe, former proprietor of the ferry, left several
childien. two daughters and two sons, Jeremiah and
Peter. Several descendants of the Litter are said to
be still living here. Dobbo' Ferry is not only distin
guished for its antiquity, for Its Indian tribe that
resided here, for its early settlement, for ita ancient
and important feny, but as the scene of early and
active military operations during the Revolu
tionary war. ltd name is identified with
that fearful struggle that tried men's souls.
Very early a fort was built here, which was of much
service during the war. In 177*1 a skirmish took
ploce in Edgars lane between a body of Hessians
and a troop of horso under Colonel shelden. The
Hessians sustained a terrible defeat; but one was
left to tell the tale. He fled to Yonkers, wounded
and unarmed. To this fort, October 9.1770, Gen,
Heath ordered Colonel Sargent, with .">00 infantry,
40 light horseNand Capt. Horton of the artillery with
12-ponnders, to "watch the movements of the ene
my up the river." To this place the British nrmy
reared after the battle of White Plains, closely fol
lowed by reconnoitering partiej of Americans. On
the 29th February, 177?^ General Lincoln's division
Of the Continental army was ordered to Doblw' Fer
rr. Dobbs' Ferry was seized by Benedict
Arnold, the traitor, and Major Andre, the
spy, as the place of their first meeting
where they were to consummate a plan for the ruin
Of oor country: but in this they were strangely
thwarted. Arnold wrote a letter from Dobbs' Ferry
to Gen. Washington, assigning false reasons for hii
coming down the rivr, and thus managing to de
ceive the General, and not to wake any SMpickmi
as to his real intentions. Here at Doom Ferry an
interview was held between <>en. Robinson, of the
British army. deputed by Sir Henry Clinton, and
Gen. Green, deputed by Cen. Washington. The ob
ject of the former was to prove the innoeonc of
Major Andre and to effect his liberation. The plan
did not mm coed. After this unsuccessful interview,
Gro. PoMnson wrote a letter to Oen. Washington
to nec'ire his liberty, bat the letter did not avail at
all. Major Andre wbh executed the -*am? day at
Tnppf'O, at 12 o'clock, Oct. 2, 1780. After this, on
th, night of the 3d of August, 1711, at 11 o'clock*,
the l'rli 'all and American guard boat* met in the
1'pWW' TtPf, wlwre Hwre nw wasidm
| ble fighting. The 7th of August, 1T31. the tul
' cans were awakened by the firing of cuinit
t Dobbs' Ferry. Two of the enemy** gunboat* had
com*- op at) high ad (he ferry, probably to seise ves
sels. On finding they wero discovered' they fired
I four cannon, but to no effect. Po<ir cannon were
i discharged from the buttery at the boaU, and
they went down the river. There are many aa>
I cient relics here, which are carefully preserved.
; My friend Mi. Warner has in his po-ueMon a
: bayonet, a cannon ball, and an Indian spoon.
| Upon the suspension of hostilities, May i*l. 1783,
! General Washington, his Excellency Governor Olin
i ton, and Bir Guy Carlton, the British commander,
and theii respective suits, met here. The two former
| came down the liver in barges, the latter ascended
the river in a frigate. We see .this placo, though
little among the thousands of America, U rich in
historical aseociations and revolutionary reminis
cences, having been clc-ely identified with the his
tory of our couutry in the ever-to-be-remembered
period that tried meu'o soul**. Washington and
some of his noble compeers trod this soil, and pat up
in the dwellings, and ate at the tables of your fathers,
distinguished by the presence #f Hritish governors
and generals, and for the transaction of business in
which our common country was deeply interest
ed. The oldest church in the State is in this
6ouuty, a little north of Tarrytown, where Icha
bod Crane used to t??t ti}t Psalm tuOQs, ?reeled
in 1099 by Frederick l'hillfps kna Oatherute Van
cot than, his wife. The pulpit and communion
table were brought from Holland. The communion
tabic still remains, a venerable reiio of former ages.
The Presbyterian Church In Lowpr Greenbusli, was
organized April 11,1R2.">. Zlon (^hnrch (Hpiacopal)
waa erected in 18;t3. We are- now to erect a Metho
dist Episcopal Church. In reviewing the past, we
.shall be reminded of the great changes thit have
tuken place. The magnificent Hudson rolls on as
formerly, bu; where are the mighty tribes of Indiana
that lived, and hunted, and fished upon its
banks, and paddled their canoes upon its watere?
The}- have disappeared long, lorg ago. They have
left the t.'iavcf of their ancestors, and Ihe home of
their childhood, lnsteu.i of wigwams aud Indian
villages, .\e have towns, cities,and flowery villages.
Instead of the war whoop is hoard the shout of joy,
the harp q{ mlrtl', and th?- anthem of praise. Tlx*ac
WftrriuK. that once stained this soil with blood are
gone. The dove of peace ia seen with the olive
branch in her mouth. Violence is no mnro heard in
the land. Our lines have fallen !n pleasant plaoes,
and we have a goodly heritage. The fathers,where
are they ? Washington sleeps in his beloved Mount
Vernon. The re t have fonght their last battle.
We will now talk more of a corner stone, the great
object that has convened us tosrether. Who can calcu
late the interests that cluster Hround a new place of
worship?interests not confined to time but reaching
onward to eternity. 1 rejoice that you are to oall
the name of this new edifice the Buoitnerfield Metho
dist Episcopal Church. Bummerfleld, a name on
which we love to dwell. Summerfield possessed
much of the spirit of the beloved John, whose name
| he bore. There is nothing that can add to the name
i of Summerfield. We mignt as well trj to add to the
i fragrance of the rose?to the brilliance of the rain
i bow?to the beauty of the moon?the splendor of
I the sun, or the glory of the heavens. He needs n>
' church crected, called by his name?no monument
to perpetuate his memory? he has one deep in t ie
hearts of the people. Ills is one of the immortal
names that cannot die. He was the model preacher.
How brilliant his career?how peaceful his end. His
fame is in all the churches, his name aud record are
on high, his fame is eternity.
At the conclusion of the foregoing address there
was some singing by the Sunday scholars, during
which a collection, amounting to was taken up.
The corner stone was then laid according to the
prescribed form, the following articles having pre
viously been placed under it in a sealed box

Minority Report on tlie Tariff.
Tbe undersigned, members of tbe Committee of !
Ways and Means, dissenting from the views of the 1
majority of the committee, as contained iu the bill t
reported to the House, entitledA bill in altera- j
tion of on art reducing the dntv cn import*, and for 1
other purposes, approved Wth July, Ibie," beg j
leave to present a bill, wliich the undersigned believe
to be more responsive to the present demands, and ?
more conducive to the general interests or the ?
country, in its several departments of industry aud ,
enterprise. I
Tho general objections f.f the undersigned to tho !
bill reported by the majority may be biiofly stated |
as follows:?
The act of 1810 contains eight schedules, or differ- I
ent rates of duty. Spirits are placed in the schednle, '
neariy prohibitory, of 100 per cent doty, and other
articles in schedules of 40,80, 2f>, 'Jo, 15,10, aud 5
per cent duty. Leaving spirits where they were
placed by the tariff of 1846, the bill repotted by the
majority make* the next highest rate of duty 20 per
cent; and as this schedule embraces the principal
duty paying atticles, the nndersigncd apprehend so i
great a reduction of duty will give an undue stimu
lus to the importation or such articles, which, whilst '
it will tend to the injury of American industry em
ployed iu the production of like articles, will have
the effect to countervail the main object of the bill,
which is to reduce the revenue, and not to increase
il. The !ik'N effect must be expected from reducing
the duty ou the arti :les in the lower schedules, in
stead of malting many of those articles free.
The tariff of 1940 contained, as lias been observed,
; eight schedule* or din'erent rates of duty. The bill
! reported by the majority proposes to retain five;
i thus keeping up, against the lights of experience,
tbe complications of the present law, and the evils
which are known to flow from it?namely, uncer
tainty of i,la?sili:*t?n, contrivancos to evade the
1 proper duty, injury to the fair importer, appeals
fromapprai&emcat and litigation, with the expense,
loss of time, and dissatisfaction which these contro
versies produce. All this evil is obviated by the
simple expedient of a single rale of duty falling
niton articles of general consumption, anci leaving
free from duty raw materials, articles of little
dutiable value, Ao., Ac., npon which the dnty is not
required by the wants of the treasury, and therefore
ought not to be taxed.
By abridging the free list, and subjecting the ar
ticles whi' h tlie department had placed on it to the
low rates of live, ten, and fifteen per cent, duty, two
objects, proper to b? kept in flew, are wholly disre
garded in the bill rci?orttd by tho majority : 1st.
The euc'ii.rageinent of American industry, by ad
mitting the ratv materia! free from duty where the
duty I" not wanted; whi< h is deemed by the nndcr
I Kigned n matter'.f jnst and f ound policy". The effect
w ill bo to enable the American manufacturer to com
| pet'* with his foreign rival, as well in other countries
( ?s his own, and by nuch successful competition
' abroad, to add employment to our shipping interest,
I both in the export of American manufactures and
the Importation of dutiable and other articles in re
| tnrn; and, 2d. Ho far as the duty is not needed on
I the articles in the *ald list, the nndersigncd consider
: it to V>e incumbent upon a free government to relievo
1 the pcoplo from all custom-house impediments and
i restrictions, am! the government from an increasing
line of officers, thereby rendered nocesssvy.
The bill which the undersigned present as free
, fiotn the objections, and as combining the ndvan
i tjges severally stited herein, is substantially the
! bill prei*red by the .Secretary of the Treasury. and
recommended, with the reasons therefor, in nis an
nual report on the finances, at the commencement
of the session.
There are souk modifications in the details of the
bill of the department, but which do not interfere
materially with its scope and policy.

in consequence, the four mile race will not come off

The delegate! of the above body held a regular
meeting last evening, at Pythagoras Hall, Walker
street, which was well attended.
At half pant eight o'clock, Col. Forbes was called
to the chair, and Mr. Weichel acted as Secretary to
the meeting. The Last minutes were aead and ap
Col. Forbes, on the part of the New York Com
mittee, appointed to confer with the Boston Kansas
Emigration Society, made a report. 1
The committee had met with a few members of the
last named society at the h >u?e 398 Bro.tdway, oa
the evening of the 12th instant, and then and there
stated their objections to the proposed plan of ooa? ,
ducting this new emigration scheme. The commit- '
tee stated that the objections were princip illy th it
tbete was no proposition to aid the emigraut suffi
ciently, so as that he could oxUt in a deiert until
the first year't? crop came in for his support. On
the following Wednesday, Colonel Forbes had an
iutarview Willi Mr. Thayer, President of the Ba
ton Kansas Emigration Company, who had oome
to New York in. the meantime, when he
(Cot Fork*) repeated the same objections. Mr. I
Thayer lad shown several letters which he had
rice.,ed from various points of the United State*,
which exhibited ft stiong popular tlosiro for emigra
tion to Kansa?- These communications came fr>a
parties able to sustain themselves, and Mr. Hi?yer .
hoped that a sufficient number of Americans would ;
bo found to go, and he hoped that the lirst detach
oiviit would he it ady to march abmt the lat day of
August next. Such laborers as would go down at
that time would bo sent by the society at a oo?t of j
one-fourth the regular fore, but none would be sent I
by the company who did not pay that amount, or
who fc\pect?d to be relieved by the company. The
committee reported th?t under these oircu in dances
they had concluded that they could now only cen- |
gratulate the Boston company on its prospect* of |
apeedily filling up the territory'und making it Into a I
fiee State, In mean* of the many persons of property
ready to gOthue,and ft.^ they may require labor
help hereafter, wheu the committee can see that
with help will find the means of existence'.here,
then, donbtl' -s, the ?oc ety will assist and succeed la
procuring goc-1 and snitpMe anti-blavery person* to
forward to the it ttloii-s. I util the atfuir shall at
-ume thi3 aspect the eommitteo could not see what ;
I they could do in the roHter.
1 be Convention adopted ti??? report, and orderei |
it to be insrrtC'i iu the minutes a-expressing the !
feeling of the general body on the Kroat question I
of slavery or freedom in the new Territories It ]
wan, however, feared that the Bostonians were not j
solid on the subject of slavery, and that the rich j
Americans would cultivate with slaveJ before a suf
ficient number of poor, but really free emigrants ,
could be sent there to vote (he stain from that por- |
tion of the laud.
Tae Spouftaka read the following letter as the
leply of the United Liberal Society to a comma- i
nicutioa from the Polish Democratic Society :?
New York, June 21, 18S4.
?to nr; rotWH roraocnATio socirrr, t-;r<v ?-ork.
CItlzsna?You will c Kcvuc us for ne t lur. ;n~ answered
jour letter earlier, because It lias been lo?t by one of
the reporters.
We have given full cor hiderst ions t" all your retairUs
regarding }ot>j>eives and us, p.ml though vo deplore
that you consider yourselves only as guests in this
country, (wbi<h exclude* yon from voting.) yet there
it re ties enough left to unite ns. We heartily approve
your noble a m, expressed under No. 2, and "ai demo
crat* wiio.-e views are no'bing but liberty to discuss the
?roper step* to achieve the victory over the reactionists
u all parts of the world, we invito you to join us. Tbere
may notcetimes arise queations. in the discussion of which
jou will not participate, but you oannot be indifferent
to a contention of societies where object Is an eternal
agi'ation asainst otipret'ion in the nomination of none
but true republicans to public offices, and united action
of the American aad foreign democratic, by which
alone we can hope to arrive at peace, and at the unirer
b?l republic. Kcned (for the body.)
It was moved and seconded that the letter be
adopted and inserted on the minutes. The motion
was carried.
The question? of the sustaining by all legislative
means a new system of license law, proposed by
the body, and the establishment of a new Board of
Health for the purpose of inspecting all liquors,
beef, vegetables, ii?h, bread, and every other edible
nnd driukable necessary for the support of the
human race, were next considered.
The object of the last proposition seems to be the
cm-ur'ng to all men of plenty of the "mature com
forts'' of good quality instead of curtailing them in
quantity, a^ proposed by the Maine law men. A
formof bill to be proposed to the Legislature of tlie
State fov adoption was then read, and it certainly
g>ropot?d the enactment of heavy penalties for the
Nile ur manula' turc of weak beer, bad rum, Mickey
cheese, Ac.. Ac.
Both bills we it ordered to l>e printed, aud a copy
furnished to etteli delegate, when the general ques
1 ton would be considered in a fortnight.
It was Resolved That the delegates do pnt them
solves in communication with all the other liberal
> ocieties in this State, for the purpose of the holding
i f a State Convention of delegates, with a view to
t'le holding ofn general convention of all the repub
licans in the Union afterwards.
The 8ecrttr.iT t-aid that he believed that the cor
: uptlon of the democratic government now c\i-ting
iu the United States, rendered the statu of affairs
worse than the worst system of I'ussian despotism,
which was tierce but honest; and lie hoped that the
democracies of Knrope should be instructed upon
the true state of rnle in America, by a cam mil tee of
the body inspecting and revising the new political
catechism, for European circulation, which is attach
ed to Col. Forbes' military work.
A eommitteo of five was appointed for the pur
pose, when the meeting adjourned for a fortnight.
