Jidinston. Morris oberly, Fratu is J Jiven special attention to pood com
itself with the af-
I sinuated itself, and was engaging
fectior.s and iasions of man.
It is directly an expression of iiun's thoughts and of
those tender fei lintrs and imaginations w hich also g-ive
rise to poetry, its sister art. Music is sister or parent
of poetry and both are invariably linked together. Al
though musio may owe much of its attraction to the
senses, yet it essentially originates in the mind. The
former may b entirely wanting in an appreciation of
its boundless effect, whilf-t the latter may breathe all
that can be said to apply to the most beautiful strains.
Alexander Pope who had such trreat power.-, of versifi
cation. ould not appreciate music, and Carr'ck, the
actor, and th friend of Joldsrnith was quite ndiffer
er.t to the moat simple melodies or most enchantir.s
strains, not even in the jolly choruses which nis friends
indulged in. did he dliht. Thus should the effects
of muse., its source and expression, be judged, not by
the prn-Jticed ear. bo by the rode and untutored mind.
It is by examining and referring to all lasse i of men
that we conclude it to be appreciated by the all, if not
by senses only, at least by the affection.
The backwoodsman or farmer, who. from day to day
toils in the sweat of his brow but who in his rural
home, breathing the pure, unadulterated air, and ad
miring the works of an omnipotert flod. would not ex
change his lot for that o" a king gives expression alike
to his joy and his sorrows by means of music. The
hirpint; of the cri?ket. the endless ariations of the
mocking bird or the sweet melodies of the nightingale,
are appreciated bes by him. He sings while he works:
he drives away v.-e'ess care with song. Tt is the songs
of the rural horr.s tat our poets have so delighted
to imitate songs in which all the expressions of the
human heart are expressed in the most humble, tender
and attractive form.
Music is not ashamed to enter the lowliest hovel
where a fond mother sings her lullaby to her darling
with as much love and affection as the queen in her
palace. What, indeed, would this world b if music
were absent, if man could not breathe in more delicate
expressions, his ir.most feelings than in the cold words
of language? W--ii nothing can please, or bring con
solation to th" mil that is overburdened with sorrow,
when even tears an brine; no relief, sorg can still
comfort it. Music, in truth, ac ompanles man through
life, from his very birth even unto death. Children
scarcely able to listen, already delight to imitate pome
pleasant strain heard before. What pleasure is there
not in the chorus of the schoolroom? the sweet melo
dies that ever remind us when we too were among
those happy, careless children, unacquainted with the
realities of iifp. What sweet recollections of home and j
friends and boon companions an we bring back to our 1
memories without music end song being associate'! j
with them? Truly, what is home without a mother?
but likewise, what Is home without music a home J
where never the Joyful, ringing laughter of the chil
dren is heard, where never a musical strain seeks
abode? Truly fueh a home is lacking the attractions of
ope winch we picture to ourselves. Finally, when that
wonted vigor of manhood's years has left us, when on
the verge of the grave, music regrets not our acquaint
ance. And then, after the soul has departed for other
than earthly realms, the sad, solerrn and slow strains
f the dirge, together with the intermingling beats of
the muffled drum, do homage to the cold, lifeless re
mains of man and bespeak the anguish and the sorrow
which the departure of a friend or relative has caused
in the hearts of those left behind. Thus the effect on
man individually, and when considering mankind In
general, it makes itself equally prominent. How could
we celebrate national festivals in a manner befitting
the occasion without it? Would not a spirit of Joy,
emotion and rapture be wanting which lmd such a
magic effect to public entertainment? How the audi
ence in the opera listen with breathless awe to the end
less and varied melodies of the orchestra? What en
chantment is there not in all national music? what a
feeling of love and patriotism?
oh, what pleasure would man be refused to enjoy
were music absent! The delight of childhood years, a
source of pleasure in youth and manhood, a solace in
old ace. and then yes. even beyond the grave, shall
ti e music of the Celestial spheres and spirits greet our
Music, oh. how faint, how weak
Languages fades before thy spell!
Wliy should feeling ever speak.
When thou canst breathe her soul so well?

love's are e'en more false than they.

Can sweetly soothe and not betray.

On y about a dozen miles south
of Albany, the capital city of
New York, upon either bank of the
stately Hudson river, divided as by
a ribbon of clean silver, and stretch
ing away across the gray-blue hills
to eastward and westward, lay the
preat I Hitch Patroonship of Uensw-
laerswyck. For four and 20 miles
along the river sides, and crosswise
a di' -uirney. in all over 700,000
acres of virgin earth, both meadow
and upland, ineluliiiff the present
counties of Rensselaer, Albany and
a goodly portion of Columbia, swept
the splendid baronial domain of
Jonkiver Kiliaen Van Rensselaer,
the pearl merchant of Amsteidam
and the founder of the celebrated
family in America.
Before coming to America, the
Van Rensselaers were people of im
portance in Holland, respected and
honored by their countrymen, held
many positions of trust, and their
name tigures constantly as Burg
masters, councillors, treasurers, etc.,
in many of the important towns of
their native country.
The patroonship of Rensselaers
wytk passed from one to other of
the members of this family up to
the mid. lie of the 18th century, when
Stephen Van Rensselaer, in 176",
began the erection of what he con
sidered would be the finest manor
house in America. The year can be
continued by conspicuous letters
forged out of wrought-iron and fas
tened on one of the outer walls.
This manor house stands today
rather iles3late in appearance, on a
plain near the Hudson river, not
fir distant from the site of the old
lb lava n house, in Albany.
It is said that thLs historic man
sion was built upon the foundations
of an ancient brick manorial resi
dence erected by ti e first patroons
of Rensselaerswyck. The present
dwelling was commenced and tir.ish
ed. except the modern wings, by
Stephen Van Rensselaer, whose wife
was the daughter of Phillip Iivlngs
,'oii. a signer of the declaration of
The architecture is simple and
colonial, but elegant in appearance,
especially amid its surrounding
groe of grand old forest trees. It
is a very charming place now. and
in its day must have been magnifi
cent. Although still in possession of
the descender.!. of its early owners,
it has r.ot been inhabited for a nvm
ber if years.
The house is approached from the
lodge gate through an avenue shad
ed by rows of ancient trees. The en
trance hall is :13 feet wide and is
decorated with the identical paper
brought from Holland at the time
the house was buil. having the
appearance of old fresco painting.
Mi either side of the hall are apart
ments some : " fe t w ile. There are
the great drawing rotuns. the state
bedroom ami the spacious library,
which was formerly lined with rare
volumes, and in which the book
oa"s f highly 'li-bd wood, or
eupy at b-a-t 7 feet of wall spa.e.
All of the ceiling of the raansioaj urer and recorder.
are very lofty, and fine old wood
carvings abound upon every side. On
the left of the main hall, near the
entrance, is a large ballroom and
back of this was the living room of
the family, whence a charming view
of the garden and lawn could be
leading- up from "bere Is the grreat
staircase, said to have been manu
factured in Amsterdam. Beyond is
the dining room, running from front
to back, and as vide as the main
hall. Here formerly hung those in
teresting portraits of the earlier
members of the Van Rensselaer
family, now so widely scattered
amongst their various desoendents.
In this old dining hall was held
many a rare feast that had almost
The mansion has a large base

try house. The upper stories are !
divided into some source of bed - i
chambers, whilst the second floor ;
corresponds in rooms and hall, but.
of course, for different uses, to the :
first floor. -
Seldom has a house a more splen- '
did historj- or romantic origin than
this relic of feudal .splendor and j
colonial hospitality. Frected upon i
or nearby the site of the first '
manor-house, it recalls the stirring i
scenes enacted in old Peter Stuy-
vesant's time. Here in the earlier j
days of the manor, when its pa- j
troons were really veritable feudal :
lords, and possessed nearly as much '
power, both judicial and military, as
any old Norman baron, within his j
own fort, with his own cannon :
frowning through the stockade. !
manned by his own armed vassals, ;
under his absolute command, and j
with the pennant of the Rensse
laers lluttering in the breeze, the
patroon. or his director, accepted
the allegiance of hi subjects, ad
ministered Justice in civil suits and
criminal cases, and on of .-.üions de
fied to the last breath the authorities
of the province.
After the erection of the present
manor-house, in 1 7 6 ä . the tenants
ilocke.l hither to tender anew their
oath of fealty to the patroon. The
fame of this great barony and the
reputed wealth of its lords, to
gether with the great popularity
which they continued to enjoy, ex
tended even to New York, which in
tlse days wa- a far-off journey,
and it Is said thnt whn the people
of that place learned that the pa
troon was in town, they lined Broad
way to view him as he passed in hi?
coach with fvir liveried footman in
great powdered wigs, and the Van
Rensselaer arms glittering r-n the
panels of his gilded coach, as if he
were some foreign nobleman.
