E . Bogardus , was condemned to appear at Fort Amsterdam , to declare in public , at the sounding of the bell , that she knew the minister was an honest and p ious man , and that she lied falsely . In 1639 , all mechanics and laborers in the service of the company , commenced and left work at the ringing of the bell , and for every neglect forfeited double the amount ot their wageSj to the use of the Attorney General . In 1647 , all tavern-keepers were prohibited from accommodating any clubs , or selling any ardent liquors after the ringing of the bell at nine o clock in the eveninsr .
