"Whereas, The hundred days for which members of the Legislature are entitled by the Constitution to receive compensation for their services will expire on Wednesday, the 10th day of April instant, and it is expected that the Legislature will adjourn at an early day thereafter; and whereas, no act making provision for the government of the city of New York has yet been passed; and whereas, serious doubts are entertained whether the differences existing between the two Houses of the Legislature on the bill now pending can be reconciled; and whereas, it is feared that the bill will be lost by the disagreement between the two Houses, or, if they should agree and pass the bill, that it will not be approved and signed by the Governor, and that the Legislature may adjourn without enacting a charter for the city of New York; and whereas, it is of the utmost importance that some legistation should be had at this session of the Legislature for the purpose of improving the existing government of the city of New York; therefore,

Jacob Hardenbergh was a descendant of the band of sturdy men who left the fatherland and tempted the perils. of the ocean in frail barks to explore our great river and to plant its wilderness.
