INTRODUCTION 



The City of Buffalo is situated in the county 
of Erie, and state of New- York; is built upon the 
land adjoining Buffalo Creek and Lake Erie, at the 
junction of these waters, and contains 10,119 inha- 
bitants. Most of the City is situated upon a bluff 
of table land that rises about fifty feet above the 
level of the Lake. The low lands that extend 
from the foot of this bluff, (or Terrace, as it is gene- 
rally called,) to the margin of the Creek and Lake, 
offering many inducements to particular business 
pursuits, have been overspread with buildings, and 
are becoming thickly populated. 

The village was originally surveyed and laid out, 
by the Holland Land Company, to whom the site 
belonged in 1801; and the settlement may be said 
to have begun in the following year. Owing to 
the usual causes which retard new settlements in 
their advancement, the village made but inconsider- 
able progress in its growth, until the commence- 
ment of the war, in 1812, when it became a mili- 
tary resort. In December, 1813, the place was en- 
tered by the British and Indians, and every building 
but two was burnt. The inhabitants were many 
of them carried captives to Montreal, while others 
preserved their liberty by a precipitate flight. The 
loss of property fell mostly upon individuals, and 
was not only severe, but, in its consequences, truly 



calamitous — leaving in many instances, families 
destitute of house, clothing or provisions, with 
which to combat the severity of the season. From 
this period to the close of the war, nothing like a 
regular and permanent attempt was made to rebuild 
the town, although such of the inhabitants as could, 
returned and made temporary locations upon the 
sites of their former habitations. The news of 
peace was the signal for renewed exertions to re- 
build the place, but pecuniary embarassments, and 
remoteness from market, paralyzed all efforts so 
effectually as to keep back the place, and retain for 
it the character of a hamlet only, until the near 
approach of the Grand Canal, in its progress west- 
ward, in 1822, gave brighter prospects to those on 
whom exertions devolved. In 1825, payment was 
received from the United States, under certain re- 
strictions, for the buildings destroyed in 1813, but 
all remuneration for other property lost, was rigidly 
withheld. Exertions for pubUc advancement now 
became more visibly efficient; and the attempts 
which had been several years making to render 
Buffalo Creek a commercial resort, were now first 
completely successful. The mouth of that stream 
had been obstructed by a sand bar which shut out 
most vessels that navigated the lake, and forced 
them to resort to Black Bock, where a temporary 
shelter only could be afforded them, in the open 
river. To effect the desired object, a loan bad been 
procured from the state, of $12,000, which, aided by 
private donations, had so far perfected a pier on the 
south side of the mouth of the Creek, as to exclude 
sand, and leave an open channel for vessels into the 
mouth of the harbor. The consequences of thia 



were to create a new resort for vessels, and to arrest 
them in their passage to Black Rock. This neces- 
sarily caused the building of wharves, store houses, 
and such other conveniences as were required by 
the new business pursuits thus created. 

GENERAL VIEW. 

The village of Buffalo was incorporated in 181^ 
and its municipal government was administered by 
a President and board of trustees. The Act to in- 
corporate the City of Buffalo, was passed April 20,

i6th day ol May, and held their first meeting for the 
choice of Mayor, &c. on the 28th.

The object of this association was to create mill 
privileges within the city. This object was accom- 
plished by taking the water out of the Buffalo Creek 
about four miles from the city, and conveying it by 
a canal to the eastern boundary about a mile from 
the city, where there is sufficient fall for the pur- 
poses intended. This canal was begun in 18^, 
and is now in successful operation. 

There is now in full operation on this canal, the 
following works: — 1 Woolen Factory; 1 Hat body 
do; 1 Pail do; 1 Last do; 1 Grist Mill; 1 Brewery. 
The village which has grown up in its vicinity con- 
tains nearly 500 inhabitants.

8 



objects of the Institution are mutual improvement 
in useful knowledge, the advancement of popular 
education, and the promotion of science generally. 
There is now belonging to the institution a library 
of several hundred volumes, and a quantity of chem- 
ical and philosophical apparatus. Weekly lectures 
are delivered before the Lyceum during the winter 
season, which are extremely well attended.

] Roman Catholic. 

Schools. — ^Thereare 16districtandprivateschools, 
exclusive of the Buffalo L. & S. Academy, embracing 
1 Female Seminary, conductedon the most approved 
plan, by competent teachers, in which the higher 
branches of female education are taught. 

Mails. — ^There are 60 mails per week, received at, 
made up and despatched from, the Post Office in this 
city, during the winter season, and during the sum- 
mer, or season of navigation, there are 88 per week. 
The first mail received here was in March, 1803, on 
horseback. It was conveyed from the east once in 
two weeks in this manner, until 1805. A weekly 
route was thenestablished, andcontinueduntil 1809. 
In 1810, the mode of conveyance was changed, and 
a stage wagon was used. As the country advanced 



inimprovements, theroute waschangedto twiceand 
three tiiQiesBaw€ek,andsubsequentlytoadaily route. 

The following is a list of mails arriving and depart- 
ing from the Post Office in this city in each week: 

Eastern Mail, two large and one small, daily. 

Northern " one " '* " 

Western " " " " " 

One large mail for the West by water to Portland 
Harbor, daily. 

Two small do. to Dunkirk and Portland Harbor, 
daily. 

(hie large do. for Michigan, by steamboat, daily. 

There is also a mail leaving three times a week 
to Batavia, via Cayuga Creek and Alexander; one 
do three times a week, to Warsaw, via Aurora; one 
do. three times a week, to Olean and the north of 
Pennsylvania, via Springville ; and one twice a week 
to Fredonia, via Lodi. 

Newspapers. — ^There are the Buffalo Patriot, Buf- 
falo Journal, Buffalo Republican, and Buffalo Bulle- 
tin, all published weekly. The Patriot is the oldest 
estabUshment, having been commenced in 181 1, un- 
der the name of the Buffalo Gazette. The Journal 
was commenced in 1815, under the name of the 
Niagara Journal. 

Pvblic Works. — ^The principal of these is the pier, 
built to protect the entrance of the harbor from en- 
croachments qI sand, and upon which the United 
States have bestowed the following appropriations: 
May 120, 1826, $15,000; March 2, 1827, $6,500; 
May 19, 1828, $34,206; April 23, 1830, $15,488; 
Total $71,194. It is built with great strength, with 
stone, and is 3^ of a mile in length. A Light-House 
is to be built on the outer esctremity of the pier the 



10 



base of which will connect with and strengthen that 
work. To this must be added the termination of the 
Erie canal, and its dependencies. 

The Erie Canal approaches the village across the 
low lands which form the shore of the Niagara river 
at its head, and terminates in the Little Buffalo 
Creek, a few rods from the foot of the Terrace. 
Prom the point of intersection with the Little Buf- 
falo, to where that stream is lost in Big Buffalo Creek, 
extensive excavations have been made, which render 
the whole distance a continued basin, and the same 
is true of a considerable distance above the point of 
intersection; making in all one of the most exten- 
sive and convenient resorts for boats to be found 
upon the Canal. From this basin, boats pass when 
necessary into the harbor, and assume their sta- 
tions either by the side of lake vessels, or at the 
wharves of store-houses, as convenience of dis- 
charging and receiving cargoes may require. 

Buffalo Harbor, with which the Canal thus com- 
municates, is formed by Buffalo Creek, which is of 
sufficient depth to receive the lake vessels for a dis- 
tance of about one mile from its mouth, and is con- 
sidered by mariners as affordiQg the most secure 
and convenient harbor to be found on the Ameri- 
can shore of the lake. The present Light-House is 
situated on the shore of the lake, upon a tongue of 
landformedbytheshoreofthelakeandBuffaloCreek. 

STATISTICS. 

The number of vessels of various descriptions 
employed in the conunerce of Lake Erie and the 
upper Lakes is about 100, and the amount of ton- 
nage about 8000. The increase of lake commerce at 
Bifialo may be seen by the following table, show-

sive on all persons interested. But the said com- 
mon council shall not have power to discontinue 
any street, road or highway in said city without 
the consent in writing of aU persons owning land 
adjoining such street, road or highway. 

§ 42. The conmion council shall have power to 
cause any street, alley, lane, road or highway, in 
said city, to be graded, levelled, paved, repaved, or 
gravelled, and to cause cross and side walks, drains, 
sewers, and aqueducts to be constructed and made

repaired, and to cause the expenses of all improve- 
ments except side walks made or directed under 
this section to be assessed upon all the real estate 
in said city, in proportion to the benefits resulting 
thereto, as nearly as may be. The common coun- 
cil shall determine the amount to be assessed for 
all improvements made or directed under this sec- 
tion, except side walks, and shall appoint five repu- 
table freeholders of said city, to make such assess- 
ment. The assessors shall be sworn before a jus- 
tice of the peace in said city, faithfully and impar- 
tially to execute their duty as such assessors, ac- 
cording to the best of their ability. They shall 
assess the amount directed by the common council 
to be assessed for any such improvement, on the 
real estate deemed by them to be benefitted there- 
by, in proportion to the benefit resulting thereto, as 
nearly as may be : and the said assessors shall brief- 
ly describe in the assessment roll to be made by 
them, the real estate, on or in respect of which any 
assessment is made under this section. When the 
assessment is completed they shall give the like 



87 



notiee, and have the same power to make correc- 
tions as in the case of assessment of taxes. They 
shall deliver a corrected copy of the assessment roll 
to the clerk of the city, to be filed. Any person in- 
terested may appeal to the common council for the 
correction of the assessment. Such appeal shall be 
in writing, and shall be delivered to the clerk or 
presicting office of the common council within 
twenty days after the corrected copy of the assess- 
m^it roll is filed with the clerk. In case of appeal 
the conmion council shall appoint a time within 
ten days thereafter, for the hearing of those who 
are interested, and shall cause a notice to be posted 
for five days, in some convenient public place, des- 
gnating the time and place and object of hearing; 
and they may adjourn said hearing from time to 
time as may be necessary: and the common council 
shall, in case of apx)eal as aforesaid, have power, in 
their discretion, to confirm such assessment, or to 
annul the same and direct a new assessment, which 
shall be final and conclusive on all parties inter- 
ested, to be made in the manner herein before di- 
rected, by five other assessors, to be appointed as 
aforesaid by the said common council. If the first 
assessment in any case under this or the preceding 
section proves insufficient, the conmion council 
may cause another to be made, in the same man- 
ner, or if too large an amount shall at any time be 
raised, the excess shall be refunded ratably to those 
by whom it was paid. 

§ 43. All assessments for improvements author- 
ized by the forty-first and forty-second sections of 
this act, shall be made upon the real estate, and be 
collected by or paid to the collector or collectors of 



88 



said city, except as herein otherwise directed. A 
corrected copy of the assessment roll shall in all 
cases, authorized by the said forty-first and forty- 
second sections, be filed in the office of the clerk of 
the city; and the assessments shall be a lien on the 
premises assessed, for one year only, after the final 
corrected copy of the assessment roll is filed as 
aforesaid. In case of non-payment, the premises 
may be sold at any time within the year from the 
time of the filing of the said assessment roll. Before 
any such sale, an order shall be made by the com- 
mon council, which shall be entered at large in 
the records of the city, kept by the clerk, directing 
the attorney of the city to sell, and particularly 
describing the premises to be sold, and the assess- 
ment for which the sale is to be made: a copy of 
which order shall be delivered to the said attorney. 
The said attorney shall then advertise the premises 
to be sold, in the manner, and for the time required 
in case of sales of real estate on execution, and the 
sale shall be conducted in the same manner. The 
proceedings may be stopped at any time before sale, 
by any person, by paying to the said attorney the 
amount of the assessment, interest and expenses of 
advertising. All sales in such cases shall be made 
for the shortest period for which any person will 
take the premises and pay the assessment, interest 
and expenses. Certificates of the sale shall be 
made and subscribed by the said attorney, one of 
which shall be filed by him within ten days after 
the day of sale, in the office of the clerk of the city 
and in the office of the clerk of Erie county, and 
shall contain a description of the property, and the 
term for which it was sold, and state the amount 






80 



of the assessment, interest and expenses for which 
the sale was made, and the time at which the right 
to redeem will expire. If the proceedings are 
stopped before a sale is made, the attorney may in- 
clude one dollar, and no more, in the expenses for 
his fees. If the premises are sold, the attorney 
may include two dollars in the amount of expenses 
for his fees, and no more. The right of redemption, 
in all cases, of such sales in the same manner and 
to the same extent, shall exist to the owner and his 
creditors, as is allowed by law in the case of sales 
of real estate by virtue of an execution. The mo- 
ney, in case of redemption, may be paid to the pur- 
chaser, or, for him, to the clerk of the city. In 
case of no redemption, or in case of redemption by 
the creditor or creditors, the common council shall 
make to the purchaser or his legal representatives, 
or the person entitled thereto, a declaration in wri- 
ting under the corporate seal, signed by the mayor 
and attested by the clerk, containing a description 
of the premises, the fact of assessment, advertise- 
ment and sale, and the period for which the premises 
were sold; which declaration shall be evidence of 
a right to the use and occupancy of the premises 
for the said period, to be computed from the expira- 
tion of fifteen months after the day of sale. All 
buildings put upon the premises in the exercise of 
such right of occupancy, during the period, may be 
removed, at or before the expiration thereof. 

44» Any person interested may appeal from any 
order of the common council, for laying out, open- 
ing, making, altering or widening any street, alley, 
lane, highway, wharf or slip, to the court of com- 
mon pleas of the county of Erie, by notice in wri- 



40 



ting delivered to the mayor, or clerk of the city, at 
any time before the expiration of twenty days after 
tlie passage of the ordinance therefor by the com- 
mon comicil. The only ground of appeal shall be 
the want of conformity, in the proceedings, to this 
act. The property or utility of the street, alley, 
lane, highway, wharf or slip, or other improve- 
ments, or the correctness of the assessment of 
damages, if made in conformity to this act, shall 
not constitute a ground of appeal. In case of ap- 
peal, the common council shall make return within 
twenty days after notice thereof; and the court of 
common pleas, shall, at the next term, after the 
return which shall be filed in the office of the clerk 
of the county, proceed to hear and determine the 
appeal, and shall confirm or annul the proceedings 
of the common council. 

§ 45. The land required to be taken for the ma- 
king, opening or widening of any street, alley, lane» 
highway, wharf or slip, in said city, shall not be so 
taken and appropriated, by the conmion council, 
until the damages therefor, assessed and awarded 
to any owner thereof, under this act, shall be paid 
or tendered to such owner or his agent, or l^;al rep- 
resentatives; or in case such owner or his agent, or 
legal representatives can not be found in said city, 
shall be deposited to his or their credit, or for his or 
their use, in one of the banks of said city, and then 
and in such cases, and not before, such land may 
be taken, and appropriated by the common council 
for the purposes required, in making such imjM^ve- 
ments, and such streets, alleys, lanes, highways, 
wharves or slips, may be made and opened.

city or elsewhere, shall be an infant, and proceed- 
ings shall be had under the forty-first section of this 
act, the court of common pleas of Erie county, or

application of the common council, or such infant, 
or his next friend, appoint a guardian for such in- 
fant, taking security from such guardian for the 
faithful execution of his trust; and all notices and 
summonses required by said section shall be served 
onsuchguardian. Itshallbethedutyofsaidguardian

§ 47. All owners or occupants, in front of whose 
premises the comnK)n council shall direct side walks 
to be constructed or repaired, shall make or repair 
such side walks, at their own cost and charges, but 
if not done in the manner and of the materials, and 
within the time prescribed by the common council, 
the said council may cause them to be constructed^ 
and assess the expenses thereof up)on such lots re- 
spectively, and collect the same in the manner di- 
rected by the forty-third section of this act. And 
such assessments shall be a lien upon such lot, in 
like manner as assessments under the said forty- 
third section*

mon council directing the laying out, making, widen- 
ing, contracting, discontinuingoralteringany street,
