DEAN STANLEY.
He Preaches His Farewell Sermon
in the New World.
GRACE CHURCH CROWDED
His Impressions of the Material Prog
ress of New York.
AN EVENING DISCOURSE.
"What ia thy name V cried Dean Stanley from the
pulpit of Grace Church yesterday morning. He did
not addreaa the question to any individual of the
mighty congregation that crowded the pew*, packed
the alslea and thronged even the outer vestibules so
as to prevent the doors bfelng cloned; it was simply
the text of his sermon, taken from the thirty-second
chapter of denes!*. It is the query which the angel
put to Jacob with whom he wrestled. This, said
the Dean, is the last day on which I shall have an
opportunity of speaking from the pulpit in this coun
try on the great question which concerns all. I have
chosen for my subject that mysterious conflict which
in the book Genesis is described between the patri
arch Jacob and the unknown traveller in the middle
of the night on the heights of PenieL It has often
been used, and may fairly be used, as a figure by
which to describe the strugglo of the human
soul in a perplexed day like this in a
search of the divine truth. Divested of its outward
imagery it represents the twofold problem which
lies at tho basis of ail religion?What is man and
what is God ? In the discourse of this morning I
propose to consider tho first of tho questions which
the text suggests, concerning tho nature of man. The
question concerning the relation of tho Divine to tho
human being and the struggle, as it is described in
the primeval record, is?What is thy name? It is the
same question which from time to time arises in the
heart of every thoughtful inquirer. There is an un
lonquerable desire to have in our mind some know
ledge of tho origin of the Divine naturo.
WHAT HE PBOPOHEU to show.
My object will be to state in broad outlines the gen
iral spirit of tho teachings of the Bible on this sub
lect. First, in regard to the outward frame of man,
let us ask what the Biblo tells us, whether in the dim
visions of the ancient records of the Book of Genesis
or In tho more direct teachings of tho New Testament.
We are not to expoct in the Bible systems of anatomy
or of physiology. The smile and the tear are the
biblical appeals to the conscience and the affections;
but there are elements of thought, of imagery, of sug
gestive indication which the philosopher need not de
spise, and which the religious man may hail, if for no
Other purpose, yet at least as stepping stones in passing
from one sphere to another. To however low an origin
we may trace man we cannot go lower down than does
St. Paul or the Book of Genesis. "The Lord God,"
says tho latter, "made man out of the dust of the
earth;" out of tho rude inanimate particles of earthy
dust. No theory, no tradition concerning the origin
of our race can possibly ailect our knowledge, our
certainty of what it is now. There is nothing surpris
ing in being told that the whole race of mankind came
from tho dust of the earth any more than there is in
being told that a Newton or a Shakespeare has sprung
from a small creeping infant without conscience or
reason. It would be against religion, the Bible, com
mon sense and experience to be told that because we
were once of tho earth earthy we should never be
come refined and spiritual. This is not required of
us by philosophy or religion.
HOT AHHAMJCI) Or HIS ORIGIN.
When, therefore, we are asked, "What is man t" we
may reply fearlessly that we are not ashamed of our
lineage or hopeless of our destiny. Man looks for
ward, not backward; upward, not downward; and it
Is In the direetiou in which ho looks far more than in
the actual look itself which gives us to understand
what he is. It is not the descent, but the ascent of
man which reveals his truo nature. "Do what you
like," said the ancient philosopher, "with my body;
my body is not me, and of myself a much higher
reckoning must be made."
THK HITMAN SOUL.
And this brings us to the second part of the biblical
account of man, according to thai division which we
find especially in the New Testament and which has
a response in all human language. What Is it that
lies behind the outward frame of man V It is that
which the Bible, in the largest Dense of the
word, calls his soul. The seat of all those intellec
tual and moral faculties which make him feel what
be is, which even when .we look into tho face of a
living friond wo do not see; but, when we look into
the face of a dead friend, we foel is no longer there.
In our outward frame we have much in ooinmnn with
the lower and degraded animal creation, while our
Innermost being we share in common with God Hira
lelf. While the spiritual part of man constantly
nlvarices the first man, who was of the earth
tarthy?the outward, physical, natural mat has, on
the whole, remained the same. The intellectual part
has advanced immensely. Tho affections?the
spiritual part of man?have advanced, evon in re
gions where the intellect has remained stationary. The
real destiny of man depends uot ou his material or
intellectual progress, but on our moral nature; on
what we do, on whut we admire, on what we love, on
what we hate. The moral and spiritual nature of man
outlasts all the convulsions of this life, and will, we
humbly hopo, outlast death itself. There is some
thing greater than the resurrection of the body; it Is
the immortality of the soul; and there is yet some
thing greater even than the Immortality of the soul,
kud that is tlioevur living, quickening, vivifying power
of the Spirit. It is this doctrine of the superiority of
the spiritual nature of man abovo his physical frame
which, us it is our safeguard against the materialism
of the scientific lecture room, is also our best safe
guard against the materialism of the altar and the
sacristy. When for a thousand years the Christian
Church believed that the eternal weal or woe of
human beings deluded on the immersion of the
human body in a bath or busin of water; when the
regeneration of nation* in the Middle Ages, and even
In the seventeenth century, was supposed to depend
upon the preservation of dead bones or a fragment
or wood?these wero all so many attempts to sluk the
spiritual In the material.
MISSION or THK I tit FORMATION.
It \m the mission of the Information to proclaim
that the significance of Marred ritos consists not in
their material, but iu thoir moral essence. This ia
declared in the Bible, from flret to last. Whenever
the mind of the worshiiM>er, whether in Catholic or
Protestant churches, in fixed on the outward inatead of
the inward, the accidental instead of the essential. the
temporal ItiMtcad of the eternal, then, In that propor
tion the ordinal apirit of the (hmpel ia exchanged for
the Jndaic cnatoma. Wherever, whether in Catholic or
Proteatant churches, whether In heathen or in (fliristian
landa, the magical gives place to the reasonable, the
holy and the living sacrifice of the human being to
God, from the rising up of the ann until the going
down of the same, pure moral aacriflce ia the true
spiritual incenae by which alone man cau hope to
prevail with hia Maker.
MAS'N 1)1* A I. KATl'Rt.
The Dean again referred to tike answer of the angel,
telling the patriarch be alioukl no longer tie called
Jacob, the Kupplanter, but Israel, the Conqueror of
God. That la to say, he waa two beings, an it were,
wrapped up in one?two natures, two enemies, each
striving for the mastery. Thla brings us to
the remark that there is not only the question
What ia man ? but the question What la thia man ?
What art thou, oh man T what ia thy name ? And in
each of us, even in the very seat of our being, there
are two, nay three, four or live men?as many sepa
rate characters fighting for the mastery. It ia that
conflict between two contending principles, that dia
logue, as it were, between the two voices, which is oun
of the profoiindest mysteries of our nature, but
which the liihle fully acknowledges. We ace it In the
dark strugglo within the aingle mind of the author
of the Book of Kcclesiastcs, and iu the contention
which la described between the regenerate and the
unregenermte man In the seventh chapter of Ht.
Paul's Epistle to the Romans. Wo see it not
only in the twofold character of Jacob, but
In that of David. We see it in the flux and
reflux of the better mind of Peter; tu the division In
the mind of Paul; we see it in the long hlstAtry of
Christendom?the mlxturo of the hypocrite and the
saiut, the union of the coward and tho hero, the fool
lurking in the innermost mind of the wisest, the
flltby thought unsconsing itself iu th? crystal heart of
the purest; we see it iu tho old theological Adam
striving to maintain his own agaiust the new, Chris
tian, spiritual Adam, It was the forgetfulness of this
doctrine of the dual nature of man which had caused
those Judgments which have been thenbane of ecolosi
Mtical history and of politics! factions. It forbids us
to refuse belief on the very threshold In any church
or any system eiaimlng to Is- all good or all evil, to
be wither Christ or Autiehrist; it pronounces
St the very outset that the sum of good Is lodged In
no human institution; it loads us unconsciously to
admire what is admirable and to detest what is des
picable even in the same individual, even in the same
church or the same nation. Wherever this contrast
has beeu represented in human history between
Jacob and Israel, theology, the Bible ami the philo
sophy of life alike call upon uh to refuse the evil sud
to choose the good without hypocrisy and without
partiality.

THE DXAW'S EVENING SERMON ON TUB NATCUB
OF GOD IN TUB CHUBCH OF TUB HOLY
THXNTTY.
The Dean preached in the evening at the Church of
the Holy Trinity. Not only the seats, but also the
aisles and chancel were crowded to such an extent
that the police and ushers were obliged to remove
about four hundred person* from the building before
the service commenced. Almost an equal number
failed entirely to gain admission.
Dean Stanley took the same text that he had
preached from in Grace Church and proceeded to fol
low the second path of inquiry suggested by it, as to
what are the nature and attributes of God. He said
that our recognition of the existence of God is derived,
not from the Bible alone, but from inward teachings,
from whose voice we cannot escape. Wo know
what our nature is and we know that wo did not make
it. We know there is something that knows us
bitter than we do ourselves. Wis desire to realise
what that overruling influence is, but our minds uro
unable to grasp it. It is a characteristic of the Bible
that it recoguires all that modem thought has evolved
about the nature of God. But there, as in all
abstract reasoning, the fact becomes evident that
it is impossible to acquire any exact knowledge of
Hlin. "Ilo Is," as Saint Augustine said, "more truly
than He can be thought of, aud he can be thought of
more truly than lie ran be spoken of." We get
.of lu
glimpsos of Him and from them we draw a sort <
spiration that faintly produces an image of Hint in
the soul. The human race is groping in the dark
after God and the mere touch of Him is light to some
souls in their hour of darkness.
"WHAT ART THOU?"
80 the whole world is, like Jacob, wrestling. Tlio
mind tries to create an answer to tlio question 1
"What art thou T' The Bible furnishes the answer,
more or less exact, and many other answers have been
formed by auciont religious foaling aud modern plii
loeophy. Lot none despise these names; for they havo
soothed and consoled the souls of many men. But
the names in the Bible form a climax of 1
expression. The first represents Him ss the Strong
One; tiie record, as the Eternal; then as the Leader of
Nations, the Righteous One, the Compassionate. But
the grand e.Uiuax was found only with the coming of
Christ, and the name "Love" Includes the rest, and '
Is as much greater than them as He is greater than
the patriarchs. Finally He is called rather, the
moat sacrod, venerable and benevoleut of all, for the
father is the refuge and tho comforter, and God will
bring out light.
In conclusion tho proachcr said that all examinations
as to the nature of God are ti. clews unless they make
MM * In
ns feel how serious it is to be in the bauds of one to
whom untiling is so good as goodness, nothing so
hateful as evil. Knowledge ought to produce in our
lives those qualities by which God is honored among
men.
The preacher then exhorted all to be steadfast in
the paths of moral excellence and prayed that God
might grant them grace to avoid temptation.
Dean Stanley receives tho Baptist preachers of New
York and Brooklyn this (Monday) morning, between
nine and ten o'clock, at Cyrus W. Fields', corner Host
Twenty-first and Lexington avenue (Gramurcy Park).
TWO BltOTJIEltS FIGHT.
(From the Troy Times, Oct. IN.]
A serious shooting aiTray occurred at South Gran
ville, Washington county, yesterday afternoon, in
which Judson Carpenter attempted to kill his brother
Caseins, and nearly succeeded in accomplishing his
purpose. It appuars that an old feud existed between
tlio brothers, and that they had not spoken to each
other for severol months until yesterday, when after
a protracted quarrel Judson drew a revolver and shot
his brother tliruugh the neek. A young man named,
ill tho
James Monroe attempted to quell tho disturbance
when Judson discharged throe shots at him, neither
of which, however, took effect. Cassins Carpenter is
seriously injured, nut it is not believed by tho attend
ing physicians that the wound will result fatally.
Judson has been arrested, and will lie held to await
examination. Rumor ha* It that there is s woman in
the ease, who baa cauasd the feeling between tho
brothers.
BOATING AT YALE.
WHAT 18 THOUGHT OP HAKVAUD S PROJECTED
TRIP TO ENGLAND?YALE8 HOPES AND DE
SIRES?THE NEW LONDON COURSE.
New Haven, Nov. 2, 1878.
Tale is never apathetic. She, however, conceals, as
a rule, so uiuch of her feeling that a casual observer
might often suppose her less interested than she
actually is. Thus her withdrawal from the Boating
Association of American colleges came as a surprise,
not only to the smaller colleges, who were thereby
left out in the cold, but also to many of
Yale's frieuds and alumni. So also last sum
mer she managed to keep it a secret for
some days that Captain Bob Cook was coaching her
crew, and Harvard did not know of it until be had
been working for the success of 1878 for fully a fort
night. Because, therefore, her boating men have
chosen to say little about Harvard's failure to accept
the annual and customary challenge to row a four
mile straightaway race in eights in 1870 It would be a
mistake to suppose that misgivlngB were not enter
tained. Among other questions were the one,
"Should Harvard send a crow to England would it
affect the date of the New London regatta V Of course
there are a host of contingencies which* might
prevent Harvard from going abroad; but, should she
go, what then ? It would probably be impossible for
one eight to row both in tho American und English
intercollegiate contest for many reasons. A promi
nent Tale boating man, who hud read a recent
Herald, said to-nigjit that the importance of the lat
ter consideration Had attracted attention and created
comment. "If Harvard should go to England," he
remarked, "she will probably send a second
hand crew to New London to row us, though that
would not bo very flattering to us, and it
would not appear to be fulfilling what our men natu
rally expect of her." It is however, the prevailing
opinion here that one of the principal arguments
brought to bear on Captain Bancroft to induce him to
reconsider his determination not to row in 1879 was
the prospect of a possible trip and a possiblo victory
on the other side of the Atlantic. Tale men recog
nize the excellence of the crew Harvard showed at
New London in 1878, which can hardly
be compared with any American college
crow unless It be the one which hod a
walk over at Springfield in 1876, embracing K. J.
Cook, Collin, Thompson (all throe captains in turn),
Julian Kennedy and the tireless Kellogg, and under
standing the combination of very essential qualities
comprised in Harvard's eight of 1878, and the tempta
tion that Harvard would have to combat when refus
ing to strive, with such fluttering prospects
for glory and success, with their Eng
lish cousins. "Still," they say, "wo In
curred the brunt of abuse which followed
our move to leave, the boating association, we taking
the first step, and something is certainly duo us.
But Harvard may not go abroad, and her best men
may row the selected eight of Vale on the Thames at
New London again in 1879. Her best men include all
but one of the 1878 crew (Legate), and it is not im
possible that he may work in once more when the
boating season shall seum nearer and the interest in
crease. To an outsider there appears to be reasons
other than those urged by the Tale men themselves
why it would be manifestly discourteous at least to
send a "Beoond hand crew to row us." One of the
most cogent Is that a "second hand crew" could
hardly be expected to make even a decent showing.
There is a radical difference in the boating system at
Yule from that at Harvard. Hero everybody rows.
There are two regattas per year at which there are
many entries, and in addition there is much
rowing done by the collegians privately and in
dividually. In fact, it is somewhat amusing to see,
on a summer afternoon, sapient youth seated on an
immovable float, provided, however, with the in
evitable sliding seat, pulling away for incredible
periods at the sluggish water about them, with the
only race to stimulate them apparently being
one between supper hour aud their power
of endurance. Now, Harvard men, for a
year at least, outside of the eight, have
done very little work, while Tale has been doing it
right along. Tho Harvard papers notice that their
men, as a rule, work little. Before the present Fresh
man class had been in Yale three weeks they wore out
with a crew on the Quinnipeac ltiver. Since the
opening of the term there has also occurred the fall
regatta, and, considering that it was a bad and windy
day, the various crews did quite creditable work.
POINTS TO HZ CONSXDKBKD.
A discussion on those points Is made timely from
the fact that in all probability Harvard will roo& de
cide whether she will send a crew to England, and
to that decision will be immediately appended the
consideration as to how Yale shall be met. There are
a number of suggestions which might be made, but
Yale men think that Harvard will not want to
be beaten here any more than to be beaten
in England. But the body of her present
non-boating men will have to become more deeply in
terested. The defeat of Yale two successive seasons
seems to have created an erroneous impression in
several quarters. One is that Yale did not do her best
last summer. Tho fact is that she encountered many
serious obstacles. About all her men wore new or
"green," and some never sat In a boat until within a
few months before they went into training; they were
ail sizes, and it was next to impossible to
make their work uniform. Then at the
last minute a substitution had to be made, owing to
tho illness of one of the crew; and another, who was
noted as an athlete, had unaccountably been worked
down until it is doubtful if be much more than pulled
his weight in the boat. And as to the 1877 crew, the
Yale men have never felt satisfied to this day, and
probably never will. There were questions con
cerning the management of the race on
the part of the referee, the bnoylng, the
placing of flags, signals, Ac. Yale certainly
did all she could to receive the prize for two
reasons, and it is somewhat notable that the
beaten crew of 1878, hampered by an unheard-of com
bination of difficulties and annoyances (lack of local
sympathy at New Louden being included in the list),
Actually made much better time than did the victori
ous crew at Springfield in 1876, as the official records
show. Captain Thompson and his men were
"workers," If defeated. So, although there is
remaining only the nucleus of an eight for
187a, it will not be long before work
will rcbegln, although there has been nothing done
except at class races since the June regatta. Captain
Thompson is working at present as hard at football,
he being a noted kicker, as he did at the oar. Tho
usual course of selecting a crew will be observed. A
large number of men will work in tho gymnasium un
til about Washington's Birthday, when the eight and
substitutes will be selected by Captain Thompson.
YAXJC WANTS TO BOW IIAHVAIIS ONLY.
The communication from Cornell and the recent
editorial In the Herald concerning Cornell's en
' thusiosm and desire to row, have not been unob
served by Yale. But although Yale has not formally
declined to row Cornell or any less formidable com
petitor this year, several of those in a position beet
enabling them to Judge of the sentiments of
the oarsmen and the university, say emphatically
that there would be uo use for Cornell or
other than Harvard to challenge Yale, for a refusal
would be inevitable in each rase. They repeat the old
argument used by Yale when she withdrew from tho
ltowing Assoeiation, which is substantially that with
a large number of crews the clement of chance is much
too x^ouiinent, and that with two crews only tho
chances of perfectly satisfactory results ore greater.
Of six or eight crews there will be two whose record
is sufficiently close to occasion quarrels, as a referee
can have only one pair of eyes, and with s crowd of
boats it is difficult to 1st indisputably just
and exact lu all judgments concerning the number of
foet or seconds by which ouo wins over another.
Then in convention the smaller colleges can outvote
Harvard and Yale and* compel them to do things
wholly at variance with their interests, causing them
needless expense and inconvenience. Besides this
Yale is committed to rowing in eights, and that is hor
preferred style of work, and it should bo remembered
that she committed herself to tliiA under the a lvioe
of the almost revered 'Captain Cook, and
to go hack would bo like a rebuke
to one whose opinions will be author
ity until, at least, the present generation of col
legians and alumni shall have lost their Interest in
ami-Influence over Yale boating. Htill another, and
perhaps the more powerful argument in the minds of
Yale men, was advanced by one of her foremost boat
ers and a member of lier crew to-night. He said that,
ill the first place, Yale had no other natural rival
than Harvard. Their opportunities for work are
about equal, though perhaps Harvard's are a little
tho best, and in the smaller colleges special
privileges are given the busting men, which furnishes
them with uniatr advantages, which, of course, will
tell. Yale has no animosity to any college, but she
certainly prefer* to row Harvard and Harvard alone,
whom sue can meet on even ground, or even water
is better, perhaps. Then Yale did not like the rush
and confusion invident on a race in which so many
cruwH contested. Her quarters were apt to be
iuvaded and her training when it was
the most important Interfered with. All
these points are adhered to as originally advanced,
and the authority quoted was sure that Vale did not
leave the other colleges unadvisedly, or without proper
consideration, and she adheres to her position ?s
originally defined. The voles of Harvard, as given in
the llariwd Cniiuun recently, is for s race exclu
sively between Yale awl Harvard.
THK NEW LONDON OOOIWS.
Yale is satisfied tlimt Harvard should select New Lon

"TURN ON THE LIGHT."
[From the London Truth.]
1 am aorry for individual holder* of gae share* If,
aa ia probable, their property ia extinguished by the
electric light. But it must be admitted that never
have companion merited a retributive Justice more
thoroughly than the London gaa companies. They have
profited by having a monopoly to supply au execrable
article, to charge too dear for it, and to
bully whenever they had the opportunity all
obliged to buy their wares. 1 oni one of
these martyrs. My gas company sent me in
a quarterly account for gas which it was materially
impossible could have been burned. 1 protested apd
declined to pay. They summoned me. I explained
my case to the magistrate. He agreed with me that 1
could not have burned so portentous an amount of
gas, but as It had boon marked on the meter he said
that 1 must pay. That same evening 1 hap
pened to meet tho late Sir Thomas Henry
at dinner, am] 1 told him what had
occurred. "How they do it," he said, "1 do not
know, but almost every week I have to decide against
a number of poor people who am sued for gas, and
who, like you, iiislst that they have not burned It. I
am sure that all of them are not in error." What did
the gas company do next ? To punish me for eon
testing their account they made me dejtoait a
sum of money befOVw they would supply me with
gas. Parliament had given them this right, and I
Krforeo had to submit. They still hold my deposit:
it I have observed t hat any one ? ho persecutes me
comes to a had end. I caunot aceoiint for this singular
phenomenon, but so it is. I have simply to wait
patiently, and move neither hand nor foot. The dis
covery of the means to utilise the electric light for
tbo metropolis, therefore, has not .surprised mo.
PASTURES NEW.
THE WK8TCHEHTER WALKING CLUB AGAIN ON THE
&OA.I>?A TlilP TO CONNECTICUT?tfEVOLUTlON
ARY SCENES.
When the morning mists were lifting from t ?
fields and river yesterday the Westchester Walking
Club were astir. .According to agreement they
reudervouaed at the Grand Central Depot, and it was
clear to a<9 that the enjoyment of their past trips had
borne fruit in a heartier appetite for the sport and a
more careful preparation for the day's exercise.
Certain innovations had been mado in the
club's original simplicity of garb and they had all
more or leas a sportive flavor. Yesterday, too, tor the
first time, they wore the club's colors at the button
hole?* spock of crimson?which had been selected as
the mark of membership while on the tramp. An
early train rolled out of the depot and carried them as
far as Kesico Station, on the liarlem road, where the
walk was begun. It has been a subject of remark
that the club has been singularly favored
by the weather. Biuco tho very Inception j
of their tramp not a shower has fallen j
to dampen their pedestrian ardor-not a sky has
looked upon them but was gilded by the sunlight and
bright with tho promise or presence of clear weather.
Yesterday was no exception to the rule. No more per
fect day for out of door amusement could have been
chosen. Cool airs, an occasional cheery whiff of wind,
a firmament without a cloud and earth which recent
rains and subsequent warmth had made compact and
pleasant to the foot were the conditions under which
they started. Kesico is a bunch of houses sot
down upon a country road which intersects a portion
of Westchester county, and there, stretching away,
skirts tho border between New York and Connecticut.
An old road it Is, too. From the primitive structures
that line it?the thatched piles of masonry, the
venerable trees?one would think it almost asWncient
as the hills through which it is cut. The old time
Connecticut farmers and the Sound borderers have
used it for many a year, and its service to them
has tended to open out the country op either side and
populate it. Along this way the club members
started on their tramp. Their rapid pace, their emu
lous application of heel and sole, their garb and all
afforded food for tho abiders In that sectiop to specu
late on. Wherever they went, windows were flltod
with Inquiring faces, rustic forms gathered in tiie
shadow of cottage porches, and handkerchiefs waved
greeting and encouragement from stile and garden
cate.
RITUAL. SCENE*.
From Kesico the road leads through a rolling coun
try finely wooded, in parts, and with the laud swells
rising to a goodly elovatigu. There were points where
tho view was really superb. One was a valley, in
which a grim old farm house stood alone; around it
atet-n hills rose against tho sky, clad with a lioa\ y
grelth of loSust and crfar. while yellow
patches where the wild oats grew, spread
about their bases, and orchards covered^the
level further down and strewed tho earth
boneath with their mellow burdens. Bod-sided cattle
fed in tho meadows and barnyard fowl strutted
through tho short grass In flocks. Taken all in all.
it was as perfect a picture of rural abundance and
privileged retirement as one oould look 1?r*
ther on very old houses dot the county here and
there and, by their associations, endue with lifo^ho
slumbering recollections of the Revolution s dark
davs. These old white walls, without speck or flaw,
whose quaint, roomy porches and verandas have so
pure a flavor of comfort about them, were standing
Sore when tho region about was the scene of battle
and contention and patriot and tory stnl8Kled. ??.r
mastery. Old graveyards lie along tho way, with head
stones graven over a century ago, and beneath their
green turf repose the generation thst saw the nation a
birth. Stopping only to view remains of peculiar in
terest, the club pushed on to a little hamlet hid in a
valley and appropriately named Glenvtlle. Some dls
Un J this siSe of* "one of the most
beautiful prospects that had yet -the
club members was unfolded. It was at the P?"jt,
where Bye Lake comes into Bight, an old, tumble
down house, crouched by the road side, with a couple
of willows drooping near it. Just between them a
golden flash of light on a bed of green hills and j.
vetv pasturago attracts the eye to a beautiful ex
nanso of water, clear as crystal, and with every tint
and fleck upon the heavens reflected In it. It ?m*|P8
hTsight as tho road is followed for about half a mile,
then is swallowed up by the hills.
INTO CONNECTICUT.
Beyond this now scenic features and objects of in
terest met the walkers at regular Intervals; but as
thov had a good distance to cover they had to content
themselves with short pauses and press onatamore
rapid gait till nine miles were passed, and .from an
elevation the spires and mansions of Greenwich were
Been with the Hound lying beyond andthe'Long.Island
hills bounding its further shores. To the pleasant
Connecticut town the club moved on. and ^^^ed it
in good time for dinner. A stoppage was mado at the
Lenox House, and then the place was explofcd. The
old house where Governor Tryon quartered was
pointed out, the cottage whore Putnam stopped was
visited, and then to "Old Put's" leap the party went.
The scene of the sturdy old hero s ride ha# been
changed of late to make room for modero improve
ments. But the cliff is there to toll its own
rtory. Here, one day in 177?. the patriot generaU
with ISO men, was attacked by Governor Tryon, with
1 500 He held his own. though, till lie
saw that the whqle strength of the ?*nemy
was to be pushed upon him. Thon be told
his men to take to the swamps, whilei he led the
British a wild goose chase. Once alone, Tryon ? dra
goons closed upon him.aiid were riding him clown when
?e Smie to the edge of the cliff. His capture seeuic*
^wirtainty, with that precipice before and the enemy
behind. But "Old Put" was of prime metal, and with
the rowels struck into his horse's side he went down
the steep descent like a flash, while the bullets ofthe
surprised and chagrined troopers fell harmlessly about
"iT was near sunset when the walk was taken
up again. White Plains was now tho club a destination,
and the pedestrian strode along toward it In fine style.
It wan evening now, and tho *un, going down in *
glory of gold and'crimson, dyed with purplo the
clouds, which seemed like gorgeous curtains drawn to
hide a monarch's rest. Then, as the club went along,
the darkness deepened, and when Ophlx *'8rl1*'
the palatial mansion of Ben Halllday is loeated. was
reached, the moon came out and shed a weird light
over the silent landscape.
"BEN HAIXADAT'S.
The beautiful little church of the Halladays was in
spec ted, where now is laid every member of th?
family but its bead and his only son. Tho latter are
now in the West, and their beautiful mansion and
park have been transferred to other hands, to be used,
ft i= K.ij by an educational Institution. Another
stoppage was made at Caulfleld'a Fort, a minia
ture castellated fortalise. which a genticman raiding
mar White Plains has erected on the spot which once
witnessed so many stirring evenU. the
to the dead of the battle was inspected, aijd th. n tbo
club tramped through the town and took the train
for hoiue.
