WARREN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY.



IV.— FOSSILIFEROUS LIMESTONE.

Small areas of this formation are found in Warren
County. The rock is rough, thin-bedded, and full of
indistinct fossils. It is known in New York and
elsewhere as the Trenton limestone. In New Jersey
it is found only in a particular belt of country, which
stretches across the counties of Warren and Sussex
from near Belvidere to the New York State line. Its
thickness is believed to be nowhere more than 100
feet. It is a carbonate of lime, containing no mag-
nesia, and when burnt produces pure lime. The
stone is dark-colored and crystalline in fracture; it
readily breaks, and is difficult to obtain in large
masses.

V.— HUDSON RIVER SLATE.

This formation is so called because it is found on
the Hudson River from Newburg northward. It is
fine-grained, dark-colored, easy of cleavage ; it readily
splits into slates of any desired thickness, and divides
as easily in the lines of stratification, rendering it
practicable to obtain flags of enormous size.

On the Delaware, from Columbia to the Water Gap,
the road for about two miles passes over this slate
formation. At the Water Gap it is at least 3000 feet
thick, and its dip is steeply to the northwest through-
out the whole distance in that vicinity.

In the Muscouetcong valley the slate consists of a
long elevated ridge, extending from a little south of
Hackettstown to near the Warren Railroad. It fills
up the valley from the river to the gneiss range on the
west, attaining an altitude of about 300 feet and pre-
senting the smooth, rounded surface common to the
slate hills.

VI.— ONEIDA CONGLOMERATE.
This formation lies along the western edge of the
slate of the Kittatinny valley, forming the upper stra-
tum of the Blue Mountain range. The large coarse
lobbies which make up the lower part of it are
cemented by a light-colored quartzone paste. The
layers of pebbles decrease in size as we ascend towards
the top. The rock is hard and unyielding, and long
resists the action of the elements. The summit-rock
at the Water Gap is of this formation, where it is
over 1000 feet in thickness. The rock in this section
contains no fossils, but gold, copper, and lead ores
have been found in it in small quantities.

VII. -MEDINA SANDSTONE.
The Medina sandstone occupies the western slopes
of portions of the Kittatinny Mountains, generally
close to the main ridge. It appears at the Pahaquarry
copper-mines, north of Pahaquarry, on the Walpack
road, near the Warren slate-works, northeast of the
Kittatinny House, and at some other point in the
county, though its area is not large or very definitely
described. It is easily distinguished from the con-
glomerate by its high red color. Its probable thick-
ness has been estimated by Professor Cook at about



1800 feet. Though no fossils have been found in it in
New Jersey, ripple-marks are very distinct and pre-
served with remarkable accuracy.

VIII.— SURFACE GEOLOGY.

As a general rule, the surface receives its character
from the rock upon which it lies. The limestone,
slate, and sandstone soils are marked by characteristic
features, no less than the drift and alluvial deposits.
The limestone soils frequently, even where they are
underlaid by rocks containing 90 per cent, of carbon-
ate of lime, are not strongly impregnated with it,
from the fact that it has been dissolved out and
washed away. The slate soils are very nearly the
same in composition as the slate itself, but all soils
are modified very much by intermixture with each
other.

Large quantities of drift material, in which soils
and fragments of rocks from nearly all formations
have been floated over the Kittatinny and other val-
leys during the glacial period, cover the surface in
many places to a great depth. These deposits are
most marked in the upper part of Warren County,
and in Sussex, but are found more or less in the whole
valley east of the Blue Mountains.

Diluvial lands of great richness are found in the
valleys of the streams. Some of the streams, running-
through flat districts, have upon them large tracts of
marshy land, where the rich sediment of ages and the
decomposed vegetable matter have settled and perma-
nently remained. One of the largest of these is the
Great Meadows, on the Pequest, in this county, extend-
ing from Danville up the stream to beyond the Sussex
line. Their average width is a mile and three-quarters,
and their area about 6000 acres.*

IX.— DELAWARE WATER GAP.
The following estimate of the amount of matter
thrown out of this chasm or worn out by gradual at-
trition is made in Brodhead's work upon the " Dela-
ware Water Gap :"

" Estimating the height of the mountain on either side at sixteen
hundred feet, the width of the space or distance between the mountains
at half their height to be one thousand feet, the whole distance through
at one mile, would give the enormous amount of eight billion four
hundred and fifty-one million six hundred thousand cubic feet, — a suf-
ficiency of matter to overwhelm a township of ordinary size to the
depth of five feet.

" The waters of the Delaware at this point approach the mountain
with a gentle current, and, gracefully sweeping from the north towards
the east, turn suddenly and paBS through the Blue Uidge, cutting it to
the base, while its ragged, sloping sides, towering up to the elevation of
sixteen hundred feet, frown down upon the river as it calmly pursues
its course towards the ocean."

Not only in summer are the beauties of nature
lavish at this point, but winter in some respects adds
an additional charm. Writers tell us that tourists
and persons from the city, failing to visit the Water
Gap in winter, " lose some of the grandest scenes the
place affords."

CHAPTEE III.

CIVIL HISTORY OF WARREN.
NOTES FROM THE FREEHOLDERS' MINUTES.
Tim; first hoard of chosen freeholders of the county
of Warren met May 11. 1825, at tin- house of Jamea
McMurtric, in Belvidcrc. Daniel Swayze, Esq., was
chosen director, and Benjamin lliini, clerk. The
names of the members of the first board were Moses
Van Campen and Jacob Brotzman, of Pahaquarry ;

Uzal O. Howell aiel llenr^e Molt, of Itardwick;

John Schmucb and Robert Thompson, of Independ-
ence; David Reed and Daniel Swayze, of Knowlton;
Alexander White and Nathan Hoagland, of Oxford;

Alexander Robertson and Carrel Lacey, of Mansfield;
Peter Kline and Jonathan Rohins, of Greenwich.
To this list we find attached the following certificate:

"I, Manillas 0. Hulstcd, Clork of tlio CV.unly of Warren, do testify
tliat tlio aliovo is a true list of the Board of Chosen Freeholders iu and
fur the County of Warren, iv taken from the returns of the officers

" \\ ItneeB my haiel and boo] this eleventh day of May, iu the year of
,iii Lord "iii- thousand eight hundred and twenty-live.

" Matthias 0. Halsted."

The first action of the board was the appointment
of a committee, consisting of 1'eter Kline, Robert
Thompson, and Garret Lacey, to draft rules and reg-
ulations for the government of its proceedings. The
Committee reported the following:

" 1. Any member desirous of making a motion must rise nnd address
tho Director.

U S. No motion to bi eons! tared .* motion u nless sccondod.

"3. If moro than one member shall rise at tho samo timo, tho Direc-
tor shall ile-'i'le uliiili -hull speak fust.

"4. Tho Director t" appoint all the oommittees, to consist of three
unless otherwise dlrei ted bj the Hoard.

"6. No member to rise more than threo times on nny one debate.

"6. No membor to absont himself without leave of tho Director, under
the penalty of twelveand a half ceuts.

"7. A motion for an adjournment to he always in order.

"K. There is to be DO e klu^ in the rooui while ongaged in the

of tin- Hoard.

"9. Any member behaving dj lerly -hall be admonished by tho

Director."

After settling a few at tints, the hoard proceeded

to the election of a county collector. Charles Carter
was chosen, but not until the patience of the board
h.ei become Bomewhal exhausted by ten ballots.

Mr. Carter presented the following, which appears
to have been the first financial report made in War-
ren County, the a nuts being due from the county

of Sussex :

" From David Bjei n, County Collector $l<i3.M

The executors of tl slate of V Moore 100.1!

Amount of license unpaid I&88

<wir...*t"



This repletion of the treasury enabled the county
to honor the demands made upon it- infant exchequer
by its public servants, Messrs. Benjamin W. Hunt,
Isaac Wintermute, and Matthias 0. Hal-ted, who
were granted certificates for services rendered. They
were probably the first who drew money out of the
county treasury.

" It was moved and seconded that the sum of S".i5oO i„, raised for the
State and County taxes, exclusive of any other taxes, which motion was
agreed to by the It l

May 17, 1825, the board of chosen freeholders regu-
lated the rat.- of ferriage at Belvidcrc as follow-:

May Si, 1827, George Mushback, the sheriff, in a
written protest, presented the jail as unfit for the safe
keeping of prisoners. Whether any prisoners had
actually escaped we are not informed, although it
appears that those incarcerated at the time must have
been a very docile set; for there was no proper lock
, on the back door. A committee subsequently ap-
pointed to investigate the matter reported that they
found the jail "in good order, and, in their opinion,
perfectly secure, except the back door, which they
think requires a stout lock." Whereupon the report
was accepted, and John Kinney, Jr., was requested to
place such a lock upon the door.

We find in the freeholders' minutes that on Aug.
22, 1828, George Mushback, late sheriff, made an ap-
plication for allowance on account of a certain lia-
bility he incurred by the escape of William Kirk-
patriek out of the county jail, where he was confined
for debt amounting to st;.~,,;i7, besides the cost of ap-
peal, as appears by Justice Bartow's transcript of
judgment in favor of Russel D. llarri- against said
Kirkpatrick, dated Oct. 1, 1827. Cost of appeal,
$1.01. The county pocketed the loss and gave the
sheriff his desired indemnity.

The tax levied for |S2!I was a - follows :

For State tax -

" jurors' fees _ 1000.00

" county purposes 1600.00

Lost installment of public buildings 21B2£7

Debt due J. Stewart, jailor- 118.00

The board this year awarded premiums On wolves 1

-calps, — SS for a full-grown wolf, and $4 for a young

I.

Of the money raised for the poor-house and farm
$4750 were in notes, given by the director of the board
of freeholders and the directors of the poor-house as
follows :

To John Kinney, Jr 81600

" Thomas Lonunaason 2000

ii.nn Curtis 1250

WARREN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY.



All dated May 1, 1831, and due April 1, 1832, with
interest.

The committee appointed by the board in May,
1831, to ascertain and report upon the amount of
money necessary to be raised for the ensuing year
reported as follows :

" That $9000 be raised in the following order,— viz., $4000 for State aud
county purposes; $3100 for tho second payment on the poor-house prop-
erty ; and §1900 to pay debt and expenses of the poor-house establish-
ment."

In the minutes of the board for May, 1831, is the
following :

"Resolved, That George Kyman be allowed $19. 34, it being the amount
of Hunt & Blair's bill for opium furnished to Isaac H. Albertson by order
of William Hankinson."*

The following entry occurs in the freeholders' rec-
ords, May 12, 1831 :

"Resolved, That John M. Shorrerd, Esq., be allowed the use of the
public square in front of the conrt-house on the conditions of his written
proposition and subscribed by him, as follows, — viz.:

"If the Board will let me have the use of it (viz., the public square)
for ten years, I will put up good substantial hoard fences around it, plant
forest, fruit, and ornamental trees on the same, and guarantee at the end
of the term to leave at least one hundred trees alive on the square, leave
the fence around it, and leave the ground leveled and in gross. The ex-
penses of this tencing aud planting will not be less than one hundred
dollars, and, as the ground left after talcing off the four-rod street all
around it will be less than four acres, I consider one-tenth of the money
and the interest a full and fair rent. Should the public be dissatisfied
at any time during the ten years with its being shut up, and the Board
of Freeholders express such wish to me, and pay me a proportional part
of my expenditures, of which I will keep an exact account, it shall be
immediately given up to the Board.

"Very respectfully yours, &c,

" John M. Sherreiid.

"Belvidere, 12th May, 1831."

We give below the total expenses of the county for
the year ending May 11, 1831, as they appear in the
