EDITOR REPOUTEtt ne article co

your issue of the 12th instant, in so far as
it relates to the destra,i;n of the pines
in the cemetery here, leaves a wrong im
pression as to the responsibility for the
The deed of the lot which contains one
acre and one hundred perches, was made
the 10th day of April, A. D. 1838, to
11ENItY 44.4,YL0ND; LEVI 1\ . STALFOIID,
and others, School Directors of Wyalus
iug township, and their . successors in
trust, for the Use of sub-divisional School
District, No. 4, called Old Wyalusing v for
school purposes, burying ground and
placei of public worship.'kr. - •
The right of interment, therefore, was
and is vested in the population, _ ,within
the bound.riesof sub-district, No. 4, as it
was then constituted.
In 1869, the writer made a mo. ement
toward some kind of an incorporation; of
an association to cacti for the premises;
'but finding that there was room for but
about twenty five family lots left finless
- the trees were taken out, desisted. and
offered to- give five hundred .dollars to
y/aid the: yurchase of another place for a
cemetery, asking only as a condition that
interments in this little burying ground
should cease after a certain; time, to be
agreed upon. This offer was made for
the purposa of saving the trees which
were then, as they have been for a gener
ation, the central gun Of this beautiful
landscape, and whose presence constitut
ed the principal attraction to this mating
place of the dead.
The-matter rested hero until the late
movement, xesulting in the incorporation
of the Wyalusing Cemetery Association,
under al leave from the School Directors. '
This movement was inspired by a ha
tred of the grove, and a design to take up
the trees and parcel out the ground
among the few to the exclusion of others,
whose need of a bulls, place might come
later. At the ,eleckion of trustees care
was taken that only those who were com.
milted to taking on* the trees, "root and
branch,i 4 should be chosen. It would
be too much to expect that, after planing
the whole thing for a definite purpose,,
those wholiiispirsi the movement, should
be willing to have it fail. The modesty
of th 4 principal in this in Ist notable pub
lic work deserves recognition, but out of
deference to his feelings I will not draw
• the veil. iThere were twenty-nine trees '
within the enclosure, and they did not coo
, eupy one square rod each: I think my
offer to save them wealibetal enough.
