Now, need tt be Mid that ihii section of the statute has do sort or app'i cation to such a case as that? Moat obvio isly it ?o in tt-tilled to take the book*, paper*, m?p?, or otfierwiie of an otttoe, fro n porno at who had ac<i aired ibem In eon* man ner or other dillerent from the claim of possession which It Incident to an incumbent of an office?from some clerk in whose band* or to whose bonne books ma; have gone from a publio office?some pert on other than the actual incumbent of tho office, no matter who he may be or how hit posMxiion was ac quired; the theory of the matter bciug that the b >ok* aut papers of a public office are material and necessary to the office?necessary to the discharge of its duties, that an ur gt-ni necessity may arise ant exltt for the Immediate me of thone books for the public interest and welfare Now, may it please your Honor, thli it precisely toe view of ibis statute whlcb has always been taken by the courts that it has no application at all to a disputed question between pa? ties as lo the right to the office, and wham the possession of the p oporty, as is suggested, u merely in cidental and dependent upon the sue -?s* of the one or the other in maintaniing his right to that office No one pre tends?Ur. Oonover, in bis petition, does not pretend?that Ur. Devlin atserted any other description of claim to the ownership or possession of those books or the use of them except er officio as the Street Commissioner; and Conover says himself, In so tnaay words, that Dovlin claims the custody of the books lor that reason, aud upon that rea son obi) : not c'airning that he o vned them, not claiming any excuslve right or u?e to them but that they were in the office, in the apartment which be oscipied as a pchli* officer. Agalu, if your honor please, Conover hiunelf, ill' moment be assorted upon hie oath, before Justice Pea body, that be was the Street Commissioner, that be bad been appointed by the Governor, and tbat bo had entered ui< >n the duties of the otlioe on a curtail day?by 'hese very allegations Oonover asserted and shovel himself to be just as fully and completely tn possession of the books and papers o( the oiHie as Devlin could possibly be, pro vj led tbrre ooull beany sor. of truth In theory or fact tn tie allegations be set forth In the petition respect ng bis own appoint sent. What I mean to say it this: Ibtl inasmuch as Devlin, according to the petition, asserted only a right P> the possession or those boles and papers as incident to the otlioe he claimed?tlie office being the principal cla.m?that inasmuch as thai was sh.iwo by the petition to be the case. Ccnover allegli g the same right to the office, war equally ic possession of the books and papers: because 1)0' lin's was oal) a sonslructive and Incidental possess! >n, and Go over's was equally "onstrucd- e and Incidental: and for that reason, defeated by his own act, he was pre eluded o> those very allegations from any successful at tempi to Invoke the jurisdiction of Mr Justice Pooody, b< cause the answer was obvious: ' Why, sir, If you are eniiled 10 the office, enter upon it and discharge the du ties, and go on If yeu claim this office, an 1 some one else li in it, who claims o be rightfully appointed, the law gives you but one remedy, and tbat Is the remedy of quo varranlo " Now this view of tbat statute, somewhat more elaborated, no doubt, than was nccesaa-y, has oe.-n frequently presented to the oonrti, and wse well put in the case of the People vs fitcvons. (i:h Hill, page t.JS ) [Counsel quoted from the decisions of Judges Mel son ard Ilnnsnto show that where the occupant of a public office was in possession, undsr color of rignt, reme dy by mandamus should be der ic1, and the onD remedy ! allowed by the statue was that of quo warranto ] Now, certainly a writ of mandamus by the Jupreme Court, wbere you may form issues of fact, may ba e a trial,and n ay Invoke tne exercpe and claim the protection of ai' the to vers of the Court, i> a much higbe' and more dignified proceeding than the S'linsaary one described In this sta tute; an 1 a fortiori , If a writ cf mandamus is not allowed to tupera*oe ice em o' 7 jo loaTttiK in matters 01 p'mi.c otliofc where there ti oolni or right, do court will ever alio* this ilmott mechanical act, which a judge la, ex eflicio, permitted to (to under this statute, to ?>. ruede, subetai Pally, the use of the writ of rue warranto The earn-- au hority says that the relator, under tb*?e ctrcumstanccs, mitt flr?t have decided hi* right to the offlne. and ihen tt.u bo< ka aid papers will follow a* a matter of 6' urae.

I arrived In ihui ancient town at an early hour this morning, and am prepared to assert that to one I earing the pro grettlve predicts of our loading metropolis, auoh a faot la well calculated to set one's notion* of onwardnoaa baok at least ten degrees. The town ha* a Unlshed aspect, and al! of the indigenous Inhabitants look as though they would g&rrote any one presumptuous enough tc think of ad vsnetng (he Interests of the place by the same means thai the interests of other localities.are made to go ahead There are reasons for this. Fes have taken the trouble to bear In mind that daring the continuance of the "Dutch d> nasty "in North America this same Hcbeneclady was one of tbelr most flourishing cities. Nor will It oocur to many that Its Importance was net at all diminished when la the year lf6S thrvdynasty surrendered Its power t> the hands of the English. Being the centre of the trade carried on with the Indians, It was one of the largest, If not the largest, Dutch town In all Amort ia. ! Indeed, tradition asserts that It was much larger then than at the later period of 1834. A stunning blow was, ' however, dealt at IV prosperity by the French and Indians on the occurrence of the colo a rated masaacre. It was a shock from which It was a long time In recovering. The following anecdote Is told of tbe massacre:? On tbe night of Ftbruary R, If,90 (O. 8 ), 1691 (S. 3.), tbe celebrated Indian massacre took place. It ta represented Is an old and obsolete history that oa that uight d'Atllebout, a Uader In tho.-o times, cogged over the Mo bank to visit Colnno: Glen, snot be r prominent m?n of the csy, and wss actually conversing with him daring tbe progrew or the work of death Colon, 1 Glan was exceedingly amicus to Inform tho good people of Scbeneotady. Ha Anally sent across a messenger In the person of a friendly squaw, who had formerly sold brooms in the village, to tbe doomed inhabitants. Sho stole quietly away and gave a few of the inhabitants timely warning They did not be lleve ber?not thinking that tbe enemy would undertake so perilous sn expedition at that season of the year At that ,.rv moment an armv of several hundred Frenchmen weir within one mile of the village. Tradition says that he paid a visit In r certain widow who was regaling the pastor of the village wl.h chocolate, which waa a great rarity tn those early tinea Oo entering the house of ihla widow, the squaw shook iff the enow from her moccasins on the newly acrubhed Hoor. Thle elicited a sharp rebuke from the overnice widow, at wtlcb the squaw look umbrage, and, turning en br r heels, loft the bouse, mutter tng as the crossed the threshold, "Your floor sill be ulrty enough before to morrow morning." The nana of the pastor was Ta>sam?ker, the irvt clergyman that ever settled in Schenectady. As the squaw lelt he rore from the table at which be was Bitting, and the sudden trembling of bis limbs and paleness of hie countenance give evidence that the hln' ot the Indian woman was not lost upon htm He left the bouse without uttering a word, and wast became of blm was never known. The superstitious belief Is tbat be was spirited away He wan the lirst pastor of the Hutch Reformed Church or Scbcnoc ady,ana lmadgrsted from Holland, atsumlns tie pastoral charge of the r.uurcb as early as the j tar 1681.

The history of Scbtncctady, so far as It relates to eluca Uoo. is sound and healthful? the first English school being opened In the year 1710 From the earliest history of tbe town, the people have ever paid the greatest attention to the interests of education.
