Ducey repeated this with the most sti enuoils force and earnestness. There Is the answer to your question! " he said4 " There is the answer that hon-esi , clear-eyed men, who see without preju-dhe must give. It is the strong minority wl o are responsible for the condition of the w ik add piteous majority." . ' What Is the duty of Church and educate ml public institutions In this matter? Should they exert themselves for the reinedyof rotten legislation? Have they rei ponsEbltltles toward anything but ab-stiact matters moral abstractions?" was as: :ed. t ' Mqs certainly they have. You are asl lng 01. leading questions, but they are mc Bt parflnent. These questions call up to me th majestic figure and' personality of Jesual Christ, but to layman or priest th y must ever cover the great mission of hu nanlty. The Church and churchman are prl icipally responsible. In my judgment. J? o -mulated creeds . control the world. I cai think of .nothing more perUnent to say tht n to quote from St. John: - " Behold the hire of the laborers, -which by fraud hath been kept back by you. cri -th; and the ry of them hath entered int the ears of the Lord of the Sabbath ' " This, Is the cry of the wretched to-day to he man who carries the whip who car-riei the -whip, and who uses it? it to utr pe men enfeebled morally and pny: icony by his masters; to stripe the helplos wo-mai, hideous with Crimea -and I: unirer for :ed upon her; to stripe the little chituren wh are.; born in mire, live In mire, and die in mlreit These things be. The iniatoiful ml: orityi ib responsible. . " One of the great scholars of the world St. Thomas Aquinas says: Man should not consider his outer possession out as cor all.' As for the power tif religion it does not rest on ecclesiastical voten-doi and architectural display, but upon the energy aiid purity of the Church' 3arvants. " Un th? 15th of May, 1891, ttiera went oul front the Vatican tn-Kome an encyclical let er ufLeo XIII.. addressed 'to our ven-era ale brethren, .all patriarchs, pr-mates, Ar h bis heps, and Bishops to the Catholic VL'f 1 "Id If. a rk ra ami n.. m m . . I i v . Apostolle See.' " Ieo XIII. tells us that it I not surprising -this, spirit of revolutionary change that is ermoating society under every lrm of goernment; that conflict is unmistakable thr ughout the world. The great fortunes of ndlviduals and the poverty of the masses ar causing the present conditions. The -Pope- asserts that a remedy must be found.- and found quickly, for the wr tchedness of the great majority of the poc r. The Church is the appointed agent to jringtabout a readjustment of this matter It certainly will not be accomplished through the mad injustice of great individual fortunes plied up from the blood and bruins of God's-creatures. Every creature of moral responsibility knows that to de-f ra jd another of his Just dues is crime, and cri ne that cries for vengeance." " Is not generosity greater than justice. Mo nslgnor? ..-. " Never. A man who is Just for one hour nai don that which is worth seventy ars of prayjr or a thousand years misdirected gei eroslty. " How "about a reform administration?

June 22.-Tti annl versary celebration of old Allegany County, which occur on th 28th and 27th, make especially timely a review of the career of Judge Philip Church, who was ono of the most prominent of Allegany's early settler. Ho was born In Boston April 14. 1778. ' HI parent were John Barker Church, an English gentleman of means, and Angelica, the eldest daughter of Gen. Philip Schuyler. '. ; His father, in .company with Cot Jeremiah Wadsworth. had charge of the subsidence during th Revolutionary War of the French Army In the discharge of hi duties his presence was .demanded at Boston. New-York. Philadelphia, Albany, and other places. His acquaintance with army officers was extensive. Visiting Gen. Schuyler at his home, near Albany, he mad th acquaintance of the ' family, and so came about his marriage, with Angelica. . . Whllo an infant, Philip was present with his mother on a visit to her people when the memorable attempt 'was mad by the famous- Tory refugee John Waltemeyer, at the head of a party of Tories, Canadians, and Indians, to capture Gen. Schuyler. Posting himself with his trusted servants at the foot of the stairs, 'the General determined, though 111 prepared for. a contest, to protect th family as. best he could. The mob soon forced an entrance.' ' At this juncture. Margaret Schuyler, afterward the wife 'of Gen. Stephen Van Rensselaer, discovered that her sister's baby had been left asleep in the cradle on the ground floor. She Immediately seised the child. : and was passing the besiegers, when Waltemeyer. mls- Jndare Philip Charch. taking her for a maid, demanded of her " Wtench ' ; where 1. your piaster?. ' Gone to call . the. guard," she replied, and safely retreated, not. however, without' receiving some: disagreeable attentions' from an Indian.' .who .hurled his tomahawk at hr fortunately doing no further harm than to tear miss tscauyier's dres - and slightly graze . the . Infant's forehead, snenrttner it lief fury on the stair casing, and falling to l U UUUl . .......... L Thf rare presence of mind exhibited by 52 j ?ut,nR' Bt tne top of hls !" " My litmus, mj inenus: quicaiy surround the house.- and -let not one of the rascals es-cape.". The banditti were panic-stricken.-Sweeping the silver from the sideboard, they passed out hurrying off with two slaves as captives, the first " armed rescue;" perhaps.' of persons held to service " which ever occurred in this State. j After the close of the Revolution Philip accompanied the family to Paris, where they resided for eighteen months. During their stay in Paris CoL Trumbull, the emi-i nent American artist, was employed to paint a picture of the lad Philip, which Is still preserved by a member of the Church family Leaving -Paris, the family took up their residence In London, and at Down Place, on the Thames, about four miles from Windsor Castle. This London residence was the frequent resort of Fox and Pitt, of prominent Americans who visited that city, and, upon the breaking out of th French Revolution, of Talleyrand and sev-i eral of his companions. Gen. Church's favor with Fox and Pitt secured his election as a member of tho British Parliament front Windsor, where he warmly supported the Liberal Party and adhered to Mr. Fox when It was said in derision that "his party could go to the House of Commons In a hackney coach. j At the proper age Philip was sent to Eton, where for -lx year he pursued his studies, forming acquaintances with many who afterward became prominent statesmen eminent In Enplish history. As tho eldest son of a member, Philip was entitled to the privilege of attending Parliamentary debate, and often listened to Sheridan and that wonderful trio of English states-men. Pitt, Fox. and Burke. After leaving Eton. Philip began the study of law at the Middle Temple,. London, but - when his father In 1707 resumed his residence In New-York, be accompanied the family, and resumed his law studies in the office of Nathaniel Pendleton, in due -time being- admitted to the bar. , During his law studies. In 1301. he acted as second to his cousin, Philip Hamilton In his duel with E. Eokhard, In which young Hamilton fell, mortally wounded, on the same ground where his father was afterward killed by CoL Burr. Previous to his admission to the bar the prospect of serious difficulty with France made necessary the organization . of the provisional army Washington was appo'nted Commander in-Chief, and Alexander Hamilton Major General and Inspector General of the army: Through th Influence of Gens. Schuyler and Hamilton. . and partly, also, from- the very favorable opinion which the Commander tn Chief had formed of younr Church as to promptness and fidelity, he having on several occasions been employed as a means of communication between himself and Gen. Hamilton. Philip was--soon appointed to a Captaincy m the Infantry., and Immediately thereafter -was selected by Hamilton as his aide d camp. On the occasion of his delivering some dispatches and receiving to deliver on his return letters- to Hamilton and. his grandfather Schuyler, Washington sent him this letter' wlch is carefully preserved by Major Richard Church, his son: ' ; 8ir: I beg leave to commit the enclosed letters to your care. If business, duty, or Inclination should ever call you Into the State of Virginia. I shall be very happy to see you at Mt. Vernon, the place of my retreat. Beiny with esteem. Sir. your most ob't servant. : v i .w GEO. WASHINGTON. t Philadelphia, 4th December. 178. : . I - Just on year and ten day from the' date of the foregoing Washington died, and CapC Church, (as it In now proper to call him.) as chief of staff, accompanied Hamilton to Philadelphia to take part in th obsequies of the great patriot. Capt. Church also acted a Hamilton's frivate secretary, holding th position hrough 1110. On the authority of a member of his family. It Is stated that he remembered having filed away during this period among the papers of Gen. Hamilton th original of th farewell , address of Washington. - . .. j Among the business transactions of John-Barker Church was the loaning of a considerable sum of money to Robert Morris,! who. subsequent to the Revolution, becamo a great landholder.' In 'May.' 1711, he took a mortgage for $Kl,fi7U44 upon ltsi,Ouo acre of the Morris Reserve. The security waa made to Alexander Hamilton, aa trustee, Mr. Church aa yet being aa alien. Th mortgage was not paid, and foreclosure resulted, the sale taking nlao at Canan-dalgua. CapC Church attending, and bidding In the property, taking a ded bearing date of May , lm So Capt. Church, Instead of devoting himself to the practice of bis chosen profession, determined personally to '''''' "'' apply himself to th business of opening up for sale and settlement th's primeval toreaL In lsoi he mot by previous arrangement at Almond, Major Moses Van Camptn, th famous scout ahd borderman of the Revolution; John Gibson. John Lewis, and Stephen Price, and with them msde a thorough exploration and study of the tract, and with Van Campen pushed on through the deert wilderness to Buffalo 'then New-Amsterdam) and Niagara Falls. Returning to Huf-fnk), where they took a short rest, they Journeyed back by th " whit man's trail,'' a road having been opened to Bat via. with garments tattered and torn." trading chocolate, the only article of provisions, then left, with th settlers for meals. They struck Oanson's, now Leroy, at the time of the first militia training west of the Oenese River. Capt. Church lior-rowed some money from a friend he met there, and thence by way of Oenose. where they stopped for a short visit with Mr. Wadsworth. they mad their way to Bath, which place they reached, much fatigued, but well pleased with their trip to Niagara Falls. . Capt. Church soon after returned to New-York, and In 1802 sent on his agent. Evart Van Wlckle, to select the site of the village, which was accordingly done, and th new town In the wilderness was with filial affection and eminent propriety named for his mother, Anrelica. In 1804 he constructed . for his - temporary home - the building now become so venerable, which was known to the early settlers and people passing through the- -country In pioneer days as th " White House from th fact of Its being th first painted structure In New-York, west - of Canandalgua. Tho nails used In its construction were wrought by hand; Thin historic- structure has been removed a short distance from Its original site,- and Is now degraded to the service of a hay barn. In July of 18o4 Capt Church was greatly shocked by th news of th meeting of his -uncle Alexander Hamilton and CoL Burr. Th letter from William Stewart, .one announcing the meeting and probable result, the other dated the next day, giving the particular of the " affair" and the death of Hamilton, ar still preserved by Major Church. They are directed to " Philip Church. Esq.. Angelica, near Bath." Bath was forty-four miles dis tant ana tne nearest Post Office. John Barker Church had In tho Summer of 1700 fought a duel with CoL Burr on the same ground, but without effect, th ball from Mr. Church' pistol striking a button from Col. Burr's coat and passing through his vest; Col. Burr, the challenging ps-rtjr then receiving an explanation -which Mr. Church had previously made, remarking that " an explanation might be received as satisfactory after shots had been exchanged that would not have been admissible before."- The pistols used In this duel were used by Philip Hamilton and Eckhard. and by Hamilton and Burr. They were of London make, where John B. Church purchased them. The barrels were about twelve inches long, hair triggers, set flint-locks, and the vents were bushed with gold. They came very naturally into the possession of Major Richard Church, who esteems them very highly and preserves them with Jealous care. - On the 4th of February. 1805, Capt. Church was united In marriage with Anna Matilda, eldest daughter of Gen. - Walter Stewart of Philadelphia, and early th next Summer the young couple began house, keeping tn the " White House." which was ready for their reception. The last part of their Journey thither was performed on horseback for over forty miles, following for much of the way a bridle path and marked trees. They lived In. the " Whit House " until 1S10, when th sbne mansion on the banks of the Genesee approached so near completion as to admit of occupation. Here they spent th remainder of their days. The Church mansion, or manor house, as It might properly be called. Is an Imposing and spacious affair. It stands upon a beautiful elevation, some forty or fifty feet above the water In the Genesee, which flows about thirty rods to the south Everything considered, there Is probably no place In Allegany County which Is Invested with as much interest as Villa Belvedere as Judge Church was pleased to call his beautiful home. Capt. Church was appointed th first Judge of Allegany County In 117. so hereafter he will be spoken of as Judge. The walls of the mansion ar of brick and stone, stone predominating, and are two feet thick. The rooms are many, spacious, high, airy, and finished In superior workmanship. There are thirteen fireplaces, th one In the kitchen having the old regulation brick oven, and the one In th dining room is ornamented with tiles Illustrating scenes In Sir Walter Scott's novels, directly over the. fireplace appearing th Latin inscription Provldibet Domtnos. (The Lord Will Provide.) The extreme end of the east wing. was. finished off for a land office, and the .log . land office at the ylllage of Angelica .was .abandoned. . . The view from the grand old "southern porch-of Villa Belvedere I th finest on the upper Oenese. Rugged oaks and gracefully .spreading elms, . majestic In size, purposely spared, have her attained a grace and perfection of form and proportion rivaled only by those of the lower Genesee, from Mount Morris to Rochester, and give to the more remote landscape the stately grandeur of old English scenery, while the grounds Immediately surrounding the place are planted with beautiful trees and shrubbery, all set by the hand of Mrs. Church, whose memory Is lovingly cherished by the older people of .the neighborhood. The relations of the Church family with the Indians were of a very friendly nature, Mrs. Church often attending their feasts and dances at.Caneadea. contributing on such ' occasions from her - well-stored larder. With imposing rites and ceremonies they conferred upon her a name. Ye Nun Ke a Wa, which signified The first white woman that has come." While the Judge was In England during the war of 1812 a party of Caneadea Indians offered to place a guard around her house to protect her from the Canadian Indians, but she thanked them kindly and declined the proffered gallantry. While the Judge was In England he was the guest of Mr. ' Russell, . the American Minister, and Was tenV3red a public dinner at Yarmouth by old friends of his father. He also visited Mr. Coke, afterward Karl of Leicester, and by Invitation of th Duke of Bedford he visited Woburn Abbey, the Duke's mansion. Sir Philip Francis of "Junius letters" celebrity addressed him a letter containing an Invitation to visit him at Tunbrtdge Wells. Judge Church returned In 1813. and the following Spring received a letter from the Clerk of the Common Council of the City of New-York conveying thanks for " the drawings of the sewers of London ' and explanatory documents which he thoughtfully . secured and presented to the city. The difficulties encountered In introducing Improved stock to the Church manor were many. An Imported Spanish merino buck, which the Judge purchased of Chancellor Livingston, he brought la ail the way from Albany, suspended In a crate under his tig. At on time he" drove twenty-four sheep to Belvedere, arriving late, and folding them close by the house. In the morning nineteen of them were found killed by wolves. Blooded cattle . were also Introduced Into Allegany by Judge Church. By common consent, ' Judge Church ha been accredited with being the first to suggest the idea of the Oenese Valley Canal, and afterward he exerted no slight influence In formulating its conception and hastening Its completion. - But the great work to which for a number of years h devoted his time and applied his energies was the Erie Railway, which he lived to see completed and the process of transformation which followed fairly begun. For many years the venerable old mansion was the seat of a liberal hospitality. Distinguished people from Boston. New-York. Philadelphia, and Albany, among whom - and the more noted were Govs.' De Witt Clinton, Marey. and Seymour, visited the family. Gen. Walter Stewart, one the intimate friend of Washington, with his' wife, drove all the way from Philadelphia with a coach and four " to visit his daughter and her young family. The " Church Tract," a th 100,000 acres soon cam to be. and is now, called, has long sine been parceled out to settler. The old land office ha served It purnoa and ha become a thing of th past. Judre Church passed away Jan. 7. ltoo. and hi remains, with those of his beloved wife, rest in the beautiful cemetery at Angelica, only a few feet removed from th slab which marks th resting place of his faithful friend and devoted coadjutor Major Moses Van Campen.
