A drowsy, dreamy influence seems to hang over the land, and to pervade the very atmosphere. Some say that the. Place wasgbewitched by a high German doctor, during the early days of the settlement; others, that an old Indian chief, the prophet or wizard of his tribe, held his powwows there before the country was dis covered by Master Hendrick Hudson. Cer tain it is the place still continues under the sway of some Witching power, that holds a spell over the minds of the good people, causing them to walk in a continual reverie. They are given to all kinds of marvelous beliefs; are subject to trances and visions, and fre quently see strange sights, and hear music and voices in the. Air.
