New York, Oct. 39.—King George rubbed
out some of the marks that the Dutch left
on New York. The revolutionary fathers
rubbed out what they could of the Colonial
marks, and we are doing our l>est to rub out
ail the revolutionary traces left.
Pearl street, opposite Cedar street, New
York, is a gloomy and unprepossessing lo
cality. Dusty warehouses rise on either
side of the narrow thoroughfare and the
elevated trains rattle by overhead It was
here that Washington made his headquar
ters in the early days of the revolution, but
of the house from which the Liberty Boys
escorted him on horseback to listen to the
reading of the Declaration of Independence
on the Commons (now the City Hall square)
not a trace is left. The Washington House,
at the foot of Broadway, where Gen. Put
nam was quartered before hostilities began,
which Howe and Clinton occupied while
New York was in the hands of the British,
and from which Andre set out on his fatal
West Point mission, has been torn down
within five years to make room for Cyrus
Field's big bui ding. Burns’ coffee house, a
few doors above, the well-known rendezvous
of the Sons of Liberty, where the first non
importation agreement was signed the night
1 ietore the execution of the Stamp Act, and
tiie house in which Arnold lived after the
discovery of his treason, and from whose
garden stretching down to the river it was
proposed to abduct the traitor and carry
him off to American lines in the Jer
seys, is go:> > ■JVs'i and a high board fence
shuts out the from view. The spot on
which stood thr, Presidential mansion in
Cherry street, where Washington held his
Tuesday levees during the first session of
Congress under the constitution, and where
New York dames flocked on Friday even
ings to Martha Washington’s simple but
severely dignified receptions, is covered by
the bridge approach. The Walton House in
Pearl street, built by a son-in-law of Gov.
De Lancy in the middle of the seventeenth
century was the palace of the early city,
quoted in England as a proof of the marl
extravagance of the Colonists. It witnessed
the marriage of Citizen Genet, Minister of
France, to George Clinton’s daughter at the
end of the eighteenth century declined into
an emigrant boarding house in the nine
teenth century, and was finally, despite the
protest of the pulled down a few
years ago. The old Bridewell was demol
ished fifty years ago and its stones used to
build the Tombs.
New York is not a city of monuments. It
has a history more adventurous than that
of any other American town but circum
stances have not favored ttie preservation
of its memorials. The fires of 1776 and
1778 swept away many of the relics of the
old regime, while the fire of 1835 carried off
much that was historically interesting as
belonging to the revolutionary epoch. Add
to these causes the practical business spirit
that looks always to the present and the fu
ture, but never to the past, and the enor
mous real estate rise that has rebuilt the
lower and older parts of the city over and
over again at pretty regular intervals, and
the wonder is not at the dearth of historical
buildings but at the number of those yet
THE SUYDAM HOUSE.
Of the old Dutch city as it stood under its
doughty Governors prior to 1664 not a build
ing is left I can point you out the tomb of
I ’eter Stuyvesant, to be sure, but that really
lielohgs to the days wheu “we lived under
the King,” for the sturdy veteran loved the
city too well to leave it when his power left
him, and remained a quiet subject of the
English till he died on his own farm and was
buried in the family vault In the walls of a
church which he had built at his own ex
pense. That church is long since gone, but
on the spot which it occupied, on ground
once a part of the Stuyvesant bouwerie,
stands the church of St. Mark, fronting
Stuyvesant place, near Thirteenth street,
into whose east wall is built the original
tablet, on which one may still decipher the
In this vault lies burled
fate Captain General and Commander-in-chief
of Amsterdam, in New Netherlaud, now
called New York,
ind the Dutch West India Islands. Died in
Aged ty. Years, f
It is more than 200 fetirs sinbe tne brave old
Director died and the landmarks of the
Knickerbockers have one by one crumbled
into dust. There are fine specimens of
Dutch architecture about the city, and espe
cially on Long Island, still; but the quaint,
low browed mansions in Flatbush and scat
tered on the outskirts of Brooklyn antedate
the revolution but little. The Suydam
house on Evergreen avenue, Brooklyn, has
Ixsen carefully maintained in its original
shape, and its door posts show bullet holes
from the guns of British troopers.
BLOCK HOUSE IN CENTRAL PARK.
Mementoes of revolutionary days are
more abundant than those of the iwriod
preceding it. One relic of the early city is
never likely to be swept away, the Bowling
Green. It was on this open space on the
land side of the forts at tho Battery that
the hog fair was held in the days of the
Dutch Governor Kieft. It was lien- that
the Long Island and Jersey Indians srnokcVt
the peace pipe and ratified tho treaty that
dosed the bloody redskin war in the days of
the same Director. It was this ground that
the corporation leased at a rent of one bar
leycorn a year for a bowling green in the
early part of the eighteenth century. It
was here that the Liberty Boys burned
< ’adwallader Golden, the British Lieutenant
Governor, Jin effigy, when the Stamp Act
Was passed. It was here that they erected
a leaden statue of George 111. ingratitude
for its repeal, and here again that they
pulled it down when independence was de
clared. That statue, by the way, had a
curious history. It was posted off to Con
necticut, where it made, under Gov. Wol
cott's directions, bullets that did fine service
tluring Tryon’s invasion of that State. The
saddle cloth, dug out of a marsh, was
brought back to the city yoais after, where
it lay alongside a mutilated statue of Pitt,
aulled down by the British in revenge for
le demolition of King George, outside the
. useiiin Hotel in West Broaawav. till that
was pulled down a few years ago. It was
on the Bowling Green again that Jay’s un
popular treaty with England was burned to
the sound of the Carmagnole and under the
French flag in 1795, mid it is round the
Bow ling Green that Jacob Sharp’s Broad
way horsocars swing os the most convenient
turning point of their trip.
Of the fortifications of New York at the
outbreak of the revolution some little trace
is left. Fort Washington, tho companion
of Fort Lee, on the Jersey shore, can still
be faintly outlined on the point of Jeffries
Hook, two miles or more beyond Spuyten
Duy vil and the best place for earthworks,
as the military genius of last century’s sol
diers saw, on the Hudson below West Point,
It is something of a picnic resort now and
ought to be a public park like Riverside.
In the Central Purk, near the upper end and
out of the way of a majority of pleasure
seekers, is a small brick block house with
loopholes for guns. It is overrun with
woodbine and about as effective for service
in modern warfare as the earthworks in the
park at no great distanee from it where a
couple of small and very rusty cannon lie.
This upper part of Manhattan Island was
fortified by the American soldiery and af
terward held by tho British troops when
Howe lay at Bloomingdale and Washington
at Kingsbridce with Harlem Plains between
after the battle of Long Island but before
Washington's final evacuation of the island.
Three or four other forts were left until the
boulevard along Morningside Park was
built, two or three years ago, but few,
probably none of them, were in their origi
nal condition, the whole chain of defence
having been rebuilt in the war of 1813.
EARTHWORKS IN THE PARK.
The battle of Long Island still has its
relics on the Brooklyn side of the bridge.
“Battle Pass” is pointed out to every visitor
to Prospect Park. It is a year or so only
since an old English fireboard, cast in Ox
ford and bearing the royal arms, with the
date 1754, was dug out of the ground in
Flatbush and helped fix the position of a
house known to have been burned by the
English troops. Bullets and small English
coins are turned up by Flatbush farmers to
this day. nie shore road from Bay Ridge
to Fort Hamilton, along which Clinton sent
Gen. Grant to divert the attention of Put
nam from the main attack of the enemy,
winds, as it did then up hill and down, over
looking the Narrows, with a constant pro
cession of New York’s commerce steaming
in and out, as beautiful a walk as there is
about the city. The road through the pass
from Jamaica, by which Clinton turned the
American lines, has not varied since, and
the old road house where tradition has it his
men stopped to drink, stands now under the
shadow of the Brooklyn Elevated railroad
on upper Broadway, in the Twenty-sixth
ward. It has not gone out of its old busi
ness of dispensing fluid refreshment, and as
the Hunter’s Home finds soft wooden couches
for occasional weary hunters on the settees
before its door.
THE SHORE ROAD.
The old Sugar House in Liberty street,
built by Leislw in 1089, which was once the
most notorious British prison in New York,
was pulled down in 1840. Rhinelander's
sugar house, employed for the same pur
pose, is gone also, but all the sugar houses
in the city were filled with prisoners to a
greater or less extent, and it may be that
one of them at least is standing. Tradition
maintains that a gloomy brick building in
Duane street, just off William, is one of the
sugar house prisons, and it looks old enough,
thick-walled enough and forbidding enough
for tradition to be right. It has been painted
a garish yellow of late and is covered with
tho announcements of a sign-painting firm
that does business within. It would not be
difficult to apply to it the descriptions given
of those post houses where one writer says,
“In the suffocating heat of summer I saw
every narrow aperture of those walls filled
with human heads, face above face, seeking
a portion of the external air.”
THE SUGAR HOUSE.
The most interesting relic of old New York,
perhaps, is Black Sam’s or Frauuoes' Tavern,
on the corner of Pearl and Broad streets.
It was here that Washington was lodged
after the evacuation by the British, and
here that his memorable farewell to his
officers was spoken. The building is a plain
brick structure, five stories high, though it
is not improbable that the two upper stories
have been added since the present century
came in, the great thickness of the honest
old walls making such an addition easily
possible. The house was built about 1730
by the De Lauey family, and Samuel
Frauncos opened it in 17112 as an inn. It
was the Saturday night rendezvous of a
gathering of choice spirits, who called them
selves the Social Club, and remained open
throughout the war, Block Sam, though
known to be on the liberty side, being a
favorite of the Tories as well. It is now
kept by one Jacob Etzell, who is very proud
of the history of the old place and looks
with scorn on the claims of spurious Wash
ington’s headquarters elsewhere The dining
room where the last toast was drank and the
last handclasp given before Washington took
boat at Whitehall to lay down his commis
sion before Congress, is on the second floor;
a low-ceiled room with deep window seats
that would put a modern builder’s flimsy
walls to shame. A portrait of Washington
hangs in it and long tables are ranged up
and down its length.
Trinity is often spoken of as if it were an
old church, and indeed its site has been oc
cupied since 139(5, arnj, its graveyard—-the
one quiet place on busy Broadway—open
since 1703. But the building has beori en
larged twice, burned, rebuilt, pulled down
and again rebuilt In that time, the present
beautiful Gothic structure dating from 1846
only. Much older in reality is St. Paul’s,
no great distance above it, built in 1766.
The finest Sir Christopher Wren model in
this country they used to call it. It was
meant to front on Church street, and the
old steeple stands on that side, but Broad
way grew in importance so rapidly that it
hail au incongruous Greek portico added
THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, OCTORF.R 30, 1887.
afterward and in n different architectural
period giving the present front on Broad
way. Congress erected a mural tomb to
Montgomery, t Ire hero of Quebec, in Us
front wall in 17*0, and his remains were in
terred under it in 1818. Washington used
to attend Bt. Paul’s and his pew is still
pointed out. The Methodist church in John
street lias the Wesley pulpit and is cher
ished as ttie cradle of the sect in this coun
try, but it is not an old-time building, the
original structure put up in lTGii having
been replaced by a Second on the same site.
Perhaps the finest specimen of dwelling
house architecture of the last century about
the city is the Jumel house, which nas one
of the finest situations on Manhattan Island
as well. Just below High Bridge and over
looking the Harlem, on some of the highest
ground about New York stands the stately
old mansion house, big and roomy, square,
with a somewhat unusual octagon attach
ment for dining room or library, according
to the inmates’ taste, on one side. Its
grounds slope away from it on all sides and
the hollyhock trees ami box hedges indicate
a growth of many years. The bouse has
bricks from Holland in its fire-places, furni
ture from French palaces and a stirring his
tory. It was built by Itogen JJorris before
the revolution. Morris wua-ac Tory and
Congress confiscated the pro|>erty. The
heirs tried to recover about ,18110, and John
Jacob Astor by buying in their claims made
half a million and gathered the nucleus of
the great Astor estate. Washington occu
pied it for some weeks after his forced with
drawal from New York in 1770 and planned
battles in its library. Not one house in
dozens that is t wenty years old looks as sub
stantial, as comfortable, as dignified and
self-respecting as this fine old house now
well started in its second century. Morris’
wife was the beautiful Mary Phiflipse whom
Washington in his young days wooed in
vain, and Mine. Jumel who afterwards
owned the place was Aaron Burr’s wife
though they soon separated.
DINING ROOM IN FRAUNCES’ GARDEN.
Alexander Hamilton, who is buried in
Trinity churchyard, used to live on what is
now Tenth avenue, at about One Hundred
and Forty-tbird street. The estate, which
is being cut up into building lots this sum
mer, is stilt called by the name he gave it,
Hamilton Grange. The Hamilton house is
still standing, though its days are appar
ently numbered. When I visited it last
week block houses were going up rapidly on
two sides of it on land forming a part of the
Hamilton tract, cellars wero being dug on
the third side and I heard blasting on the
fourth. One Hundred and Forty-third
street when cut through, as it will be at no
distant date, will destroy a fine old chestnut,
one of the most magnificent trees to be found
anywhere, and will barely escape the house
if it does not pass clean through it. It is hard
to look forward to the prospective destruc
tion of the Hamilton bouse which, though
a modest, two-story structure, a relic of
genuine Republican simplicity, is yet a good
specimen of Colonial classic architecture, in
excellent taste, with interior fittings that
were brought from England. The locks
upon the doors are a curious feature, some
of them requiring two turns of a ponderous
key to throw the holt. The grounds remain
much as originally laid out, a carriage drive
winding about the house, bordered by fra
grant box hedges. Fenced in near the main
entrance is a group of thirteen trees planted
by Hamilton himself and symbolizing the
thirteen original States. The house over
looks the Hudson with the Palisades beyond
and was as beautiful a country seat a* a man
could wish. New York ought to have a
historical society rich enough or an organ
ization of some sort devoted enough to buy
up such memorials of old times and prolong
their life as much as possible. There are
not too many of them and thev go to decay
fast. Eliza Putnam Heaton.
A New Way for the Rich to Spend
New York, Oct. 29. —Last winter.it is
said, a cup of chocolate proved a welcome
change to the geutieinen who visited the
different drawing rooms at that delightful
hour of gossip and tea, 6 o’clock in the
afternoon. “I drank ten cups of tea.” said
a well-known gentleman, “between 4 and 5
o’clock on several days last winter."
Asa change from tea many ladies intend
providing champagne cup for those occasions
where a little more ceremony than the
ordinary tea-giving is required. Of course
it is expensive, but that will beau item in
its favor to some.
It is served in champagne glasses, and
brewed in a large gla-s pitcher of the
tankard shape. It looks so attractive seen
through the white cut glass; any colored
glass would spoil the effectiveness.
This is the best receipt for it, and as it
emanates from no less an authority than
Delmonico’s establishment, we may presume
it is exactly right. Take a quart bottle of
champagne, a liottle of English soda, one
lemon cut in two, not squeezed, and the
rind of a cucumber, which hot only flavors
the decoction, but helps to make it look at
tractive. In the pitcher is also placed
lumps of ice, not cracked. On the top, float
ing in this mixture, which has been
thoroughly shaken, is a bouquet of mint,
through which the punch or champagne
percolates, as it is poured out, thus imbib
ing some of its flavor. The cut glass
tankards are very beautiful, come in several
designs, and make a splended pr esent for a
gentleman, as well as lady. They are also
an ornament to the sideboard.
Dainty little silver dishes now come in the
shape of hearts, diamonds, or with crimped
edges; they hold dried ginger for after
dinner or other sweetmeats. A tiny pair of
sugar tongs accompany them. High
epergnes and bouquets are no longer liked at
table, as they prevent the guests from seeing
each other. The high candlesticks are also
found to be an unbecoming light, so they
are to be placed around the room instead of
on the table. The low fairy lamps come in
new designs, and are to be surrounded by a
greater profusion of flowers than those used
last winter. Evelyn - Baker Haßvier.
Women and Their Hats.
New York, Oct. 29.—Mrs. Langtry has a
weakness for bats, and an obliging milliner
showed me two or three ordered by the
Lily the other day. One of these was a
round hat in a darkish green velvet, with a
brim somewhat narrow ami a shirred crown
with a unique mobcap top, over which
nodded a groat bunch of half long black
ostrich plumes, the whole very novel, rather
extreme, but undoubtedly “fetching” and
becoming to the Lily’s general style. A
second hat was a big Gainsliorough, which
is Mrs. Langtry’s favorite shape, in a dark
blue with felt, with changeable ostrich
feathers, shading from blue through a dull
olive to tints of red, noriding from the back
saucily toward the face. The third was n
fancy turban covered with a soft white
plush and with a bevy of tiny white birds,
their breasts just tinged with pink, perched
upon the high front. The Lily is a connois
seur of hats, and there is always noticeable
a scientific end delicate adjustment of the
respective claims to attention and promi
nence of hat and the red brown locks of her
Col. Fred It. Grant's wife is a woman who
understands the uses of a hat, and, with her
pretty face framed in a soft felt Gainsbor
ough in a dark Gobeleu blue, is one of the
most attractive figures in the carriage
procession through the Central Park drives
these autumn days.
What one might call “portrait" hats,
copied from the shu[>es seen in old English
paintings, are the latest and not an inartis
tic fad in the millinery Way. The portrait
hats are done in soft felts, iii dark shales, and
average prettier and not much more extreme
than the average hat and bonnet wares.

For Pure Singing Tone.
The American Art Journal of Now York
thus speaks of Mrs. Cecilia S. P. Cary, of
Rochester, N. Y. who Is now recognized ns
ono of the llnest Pianists and most success
ful Teachers that America has produced:
“Mrs. Cary made (lying visits to New
York, receiving valuable instruction front
8. B. Mills, and drawing inspiration from
those two great tone masters, Thalberg and
Oottschalk. The production of u pure
singing tone had always been a study with
her, and, observing that these two great
pianists used only the Chichering Pianos,
she made a thorough investigation, which
resulted in her purchasing the ilrst Chick -
ering Grand that went into Western New
York. Since that time Mrs. Cary has been
a firm and steadfast friend of that Piano
Forte, and it is a matter of conscience with
her to advise the use of these instruments
with her class, over 70 of whom possess
A Wonn to the Wise. —A Piano which
is used and indorsed by such magnificent
artists ns Thalberg, Oottschalk, Rivi King,
Teresa Careno, Wrn. H. Sherwood and Mrs.
Cary is certainly a safe and desirable Piano
to buy. Over 74,000 Chickering* have been
sold, and to-day, as always, the Chickkrino
Pianos lead the world.
