PREFACE. 



Upwards of seven years have elapsed since the publication 
of a "Detroit City Directory," which, it is believed, was the 
first, as well as the last, of the kind ever presented to the 
Public. This interval of time, though brief, has been an 
eventful one, not only to this community, but also to the citi- 
zens of the whole of these United States. 

It will be recollected, by the most of our readers, that a 
short time after that scourge of Heaven, the cholera, disap- 
peared, we were visited by another malady, viz : the mania 
of wild speculation, which affected alike, men of all classes, 
and, though not so fatal to human life, as the cholera, yet it 
threatened to sweep from our midst, with the resistless fury 
of a tornado, all that was morally good and estimable. Some 
of our own citizens, during this period, passed through a sea 
of trouble, realizing the vicissitudes of fortune, and learning 
by bitter experience, the truth of the holy writ, " They that 
will be rich, fall into temptation and a snare." 

Though the growth of the City of Detroit, may have re- 
ceived a temporary check, from the effects of that spirit of 
wild speculation, already alluded to, yet we think its manifest 
improvement of late, and the increase of its trade and com- 
merce, are such, as to demand for it "A correct Directory for 
the guidance of the resident inhabitant, the commercial visi- 
tor, or the enquiring emigrant and traveller." 

Having ascertained that the above was the opinion of many 
of the most respectable citizens, by a liberal subscription list, 
in support of the work, the publisher commenced collecting 
and preparing his materials for the press, Avhich, after about 
four months continued labor, he has, by a kind Providence, 
been enabled to bring to a close. 

Of the manner in which he has acquitted himself in the 
discharge of his duty to his subscribers, they alone must be 
the judges. That it will be found to contain many errors 
and defects, he is fully sensible, and would here bespeak for 
himself, the patience and indulgence of his patrons, upon 
which he fears, he will have to make too large draughts.

The publisher would beg leave respectfully to add that iii 
the beginning of his labors, he took for his guidance, a rule 
from an " Old Directory,'' the Bible, which commands him, 
" Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto 
men." In obedience to this beautiful and simple rule, and 
stimulated by a recollection of the liberal encouragement he 
met with fi^om his subscribers, he believes he has endeavored 
to be faithful, and has spared, neither pains, nor labor, to pre- 
sent such a book, to his kind patrons, as will give no just 
cause of regret, for the trust they have reposed in him. 

To those ladies and gentlemen, who so politely furnished 
him with such information, [as the furtherance of the work 
required, the publisher begs leave to return his grateful 
acknowledgements. 



HISTORY OF DETROIT. 



Detroit City and Port op Entry, Wayne county, and 
Capital of the State of Michigan, is situated on the west bank 
of the river Detroit, 18 miles above Lake Erie, 7 miles below 
the outlet of Lake St. Clair, 302 W. from Buffalo, and 545 
fr^m Washington, Lat. 42 degrees 19 minutes 53 seconds, 
North, and Lon. west, 82 deg. 58 sec. or from Washington 
west 5 deg, 56 min. 12 sec. Difference in time from Wash- 
ington, 23 min, 44 seconds, New York city, 34 min. 48 sec. 

The site of the city is an elevation of about thirty feet 
above the level of the river. The plan of the town, upon the 
river and for 1200 feet back is rectangular ; in the rear of 
this triangular, the streets are from fifty to 200 feet wide. 
Four roads, constructed by the general government, termin- 
ate in the centre of the city ; the Chicago, leading to Illinois ; 
the Saginaw, to the head of Saginaw Bay ; the Fort Gratiot, 
to the foot of Lake Huron, and the Grand River, to Lake 
Michigan at the mouth of Grand River. There is, also, a 
United States road leading from Detroit to Ohio. 

Detroit River is about 25 miles long ; average breadth, 
1 1-10 mile ; average depth, six fathoms ; current, two miles 
an hour. 

The climate of Detroit is temperate ; snow falls at from 
six to eighteen inches deep, and never remains more than a 
few weeks. The transition from the cold of spring to the 
heat of summer is rapid ; from summer to winter gradual and 
prolonged. As general characteristics, the spring is wet and 
prolonged; summer dry; autumn mild; winter cold and dry. 
The average temperature in the spring is 50 of Fahrenheit ; 
summer, 80 ; winter, 20 ; autumn, 60 to 65. 

The history of Detroit is connected with the principal 
events which have transpired in the Northwest since the set- 
tlement of the country. Founded in the strife for sovereign- 
ty between the English and French governments, it became 
at an early day, a point of central influence and action. " No 
place in the United States," it has beea observed, "presents

Five times its ting has been ehangeil. three ditlerent s^"»ve-

by the Tniteil States, its gvnernnient has been thrice transter- 
reil: twice it has Invn beseigtxl by the Imhans. once captured 
in war, and once burnt to the gnnmd." 

The date, however, ot' the political existence ot' Michigan 
us a territory ol' the Tnittni ^^tates, is 180r>. William Hull 
was ni^pointtxl the lirst Governor, with a judiciary, and org7in- 
i/.eci a gxn ernment at lVti\>it, in .Tuly ot' that year. He 
t'ound the town little more than a scene ot' ruins, having been 
ivcently destivved by lire. Advantage was taken ot' this cir- 
cumstance to widen the streets, and lay it out on an entii^ly 
new ami enlargt\l plan. During the last war. Detroit i'ell 
into the hands ol' tlie enemy, in 181"2. It was retaken by 
the American army in ISi:^. ."vnd the gtwernment ot'tho terri- 
tory rtM^rgani/.ed late in the autunui ot' that year, by the 
appointment ot'Gen. Lewis Cass, as lunernor. At this time 
the population was small, the resmuves t'ew, and the people 
impoverished by the kisses vn' the war. 

\\'iih every natural I'acility ot' becoming a place o( impor- 
tance, the condition ol' Detmit, t'or many yeai-s, depended on 
the precarious support airoi\led bv the t'ur trade, the disbui-se- 
meiits ot' public moneys, while a military post, and the liberal 
nppivpriations by gxnerinnent for public objects. The im- 
pulse and ctl'eot pi\xiuct\l by the settlement and cultivation of 
the v^urrounding country, was wanting. This, though recent 
in ■Michigan, is now con\menci\l, and is rapidly increasing. 
The causes ot' pi\^periiy. now in action, their results, we 
show here, as they have recently been manit'ested elsewhere. 

The old town ot' Detivit oceupitxl a site below or west oi' 
the centime ot'the present town : it was built entirely ot' wood, 
the streets were narixnv, being et^'onomisixl to diminish tJie

ly alter this catasti\^phe, an act ot' Congress was passes! di- 
recting the Ciovernor and .ludgvs, thei\ exeivising legislative 
powei-s, to lay out a new town, including the site of the 
one destivvetl and ten thousjind acres of atljacent land. The 
act dirtvts that a lot should be granttxl to every owner or oc- 
cupant ot'a house in the old town, and the pivceeds ot'the re- 
mainder applitxl to the erection o[ a court house and jail. It 
is i'rom this fund, thus accruing, that the present public build-

The City of Detroit was incorporated by an act, passed by 
I he (Jovernor and .hulges, on the 4th day of October, IHIT). 
J>y this act the municipal autiiority wns invested in live trusl- 
008, a secretary, an asses.s()r, a collector and a city niarslial,

Franklin street, east of St. Antoine street. 

The above named gentleman, who is a member of the Na- 
tional Institute, having made the tour of Europe and Egypt, 
has collected, at considerable labor and expense a cabinet of 
ancient curiosities, rich and rare, and though intended for a 
private museum only, he has with unexampled liberality, 
made it "public and free." 

In this notice we have neither space, nor ability, to do'any 
thing like justice to this exhibition, which, with our limited 
knowledge of such matters, we believe we may pronounce to 
be unique in this western world, and if we should be so happy 
as to rescue our worthy friend, the Doctor, and his Museum, 
from their undeserved obscurity, we think we shall have 
" done the state some service." 

Among the catalogue of contents, may be found, 600 spe- 
cimens of Minerals, Rocks and Petrifactions of Organic Re- 
mains, Shells and Bivalves, Birds, &c., of Michigan, Roman 
and Chinese Antiquities, Works of Art, Engravings, Medals, 
Books, &c. 

MARKETS. 

There are three Markets, the City Market, on the first 
floor of the City Hall, the Berthelet, at the corner of Ran- 
dolph and Woodbridge streets, and the Washington Market, ■ 
corner of Wayne and Larned streets. The two former only 
are occupied as Markets, at present ; these are kept in good 
order by the Inspector of Provisions, and well supplied with 
every thing that can be desired, at similar places. There is 
a great variety of vegetables and fruit in season, and also of 
fish, the latter of which is found in great abundance, in the 
river, all of which are to be had in the Fruit Market adja- 
cent, which is now covered in, and enclosed with a strong 
fence.

^ FIRE COMPANIES. 

There are four Fire Companies in the city, provided Avjlh as 
many Engines, named and numbered as follows : 

Protection Fire Comp. No. 1 — Engine house under Fire- 
mens' Hall 

Eagle Fire CoiMP. No. 2 — Engine house, Fort near Gris-

Wolverine Fire Comp. No. 3 — Engine house, Randolph

JjAfayette Fire Comp. No. 4 — Engine. house cor Wayne

APPENDIX. 91 

Of the importance and benefit of these companies to the 
city, the inhabitants have often had abundant evidence. The 
promptitude with which ihose companies obey the call, when 
an alarm of fire is given, is proverbial among us ; and the 
zeal and devotion with which they sometimes risk their own 
lives, for the preservation of the lives and property of their 
fellow citizens, is beyond all praise.

60-100 acres, amounting to $174,307 25. By a provision 
of the constitution of Michigan, this principal shall be and 
forever remain a permanent fund, the interest thereon to be 
applied for the support of the University and its branches. 

By an organic law of the legislature, the government of 
the University, and Branches, is intrusted to twelve Regents, 
who are appointed by the Governor, with the advice and con- 
sent of the Senate, and said board of Regents are declared a 
body corporate. The Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, 
the Judges of the Supreme Court and Chancellor, are also,. 
ex-o(Iicio, members of the board of Regents, but are not mem- 
bers of said corporation. Several Branches of the University 
have been located, from time to time, in different counties, 
and appropriations made in aid of their support. From the 
last annual report of the Regents, there appears to have been, 
on the 30th November, 1844, 298 pupils under instruction, 
111 of whom arc classical, preparing for admission to the 
University. 

University buildings have been erected, upon the site, at 
Ann Arbor, designated by an act of the legislature, at a cost 
of about $50,000, additional buildings are contemplated, as 
soon as the finances of the board will warrant the expendi- 
ture. 

Five professors have been appointed, three of whom, with 
a professor, ad interim, of Geology, Chemistry, &c., and 
a tutor in the department of the languages, &c., are now 
in attendance, engaged in their appropriate duties, and have a 
specific salary. There are, by the report above mentioned, 
52 students in the University, arranged in four classes. 

As the University was not organized until September, 1841, 
the first class will graduate in September, 1845, after which 
a class will, graduate annually. 

The number of students, in the University, has uniformly 
increased, from year to year, and (as far as the finances, 
arising from the interest, will admit) further aid will be ex- 
tended to other branches, which have not b'='en organised, or 
9* 



102 APPENDIX. 

to those, which, although heretofore organized, appropriations 
have been necessarily suspended. 

The course of studies in the University is thorough, and in- 
tended to afford opportunity for a most liberal education. 

No tuition money is charged, beyond an entrance fee of 
$10, for instruction in the University, the liberal appropria- 
tion by Congress, being deemed a fund, the interest of which, 
will defiay all expenses, incident to this department of in- 
struction. 

The flattering condition of this institution, as well as the 
excellent regulations, enacted relative to our Common School 
system, affords cause for congratulation to the citizens of our 
growing commonwealth. And while we boast of the unsur- 
passed beauty, and fertility of our soil, and natural produc- 
tions, it will, also, be perceived, that the freemen of Michigan 
are not insensible to the greater, and more excellent advanta- 
ges, resulting from the cultivation of the mind. 



DISTRICT SCHOOLS. 

In the beginning of the year 1842, an Act passed the legis- 
lature of Michigan, Ibrming the city of Detroit into one 
school district, and providing for the election of twelve school 
Inspector.-', who, together with the Mayor, and Recorder, of 
said city, (the two latter being declared to be ex-officio school 
inspectors) were constituted a body corporate, by the name 
and style of " The Board of Education of the City of De- 
troit." 

The act of the legislature authorizes the Cornmon Council, 
once in each year, to assess and levy a tax, on all the real and 
personal property, within said city, not to exceed one dollar, 
for every child, between the ages of five and seventeen years, 
towards the support of said schools, to be public and free, to 
all children, residing within the limits of the city, between 
tho ages of five and seventeen years, inclusive. 

The Board have, at present, ten public schools,,Ainder their 
supervision, located in different parts of the city,;' which are 
kept open the whole year. .^ 

The greatest number of scholars registered, ii); the books 
of the several teachers, in actual attendance, during any one 
quarter of 1844, was 1132. 

The total number of children from four to eightef^n, accord- 
ing to the school census of 1844, is 3821. , , 



APPENDIX. 103 

The amount received, from the State School Fund, in 
1844, was $1253 70. 

The amount of said tax for 1844, was $2578. 



ST, VINCENT'S SEMINARS, 

Corner of Lamed and Randolph Streets. 

Besides the Free Schools of the city, supported by law, 
there are nearly two hundred children instructed, daily, in 
the useful branches of education at the above Catholic Semi- 
nary, taught by the Sisters of Charity, not more than 20 or 
30 of whom pay for their tuition. 

In addition to the Public and Free Schools, there are a 
number of Select Schools established in different parts of the 
city, kept by teachers, whose qualifications are of a high 
order. 

The Branch of the University in the city, has been sus- 
pended, it is believed, from a diminution of the revenue, ap- 
plicable to its support. 



CENTRAL RAILROAD. 

The above Railroad commenced operation, A. D. 1836, 
when called the Detroit and St. Joseph Railroad, and owned 
by that company, but in the year 1837, was transferred to 
the State of Michigan, since which time it has been known 
as the Central Railroad. 

Its present western termination is at Marshall, distance 
from Detroit, 110 miles, and 36 miles more nearly ready for 
$ihe iron. It is under the direction of the Board of Internal 
Improvement, of which O. C. Comstock, Jun., is President. 

There is a line of Passenger Cars, each way, daily, Sun-

FIRE REGULATIONS FOR THE BETTER SECU- 
RITY OF BUILDINGS. 

The following is a copy of the Fire Regulations, of the 
city of Detroit, for the better security of buildings, taken from 
the laws of the City Council, and published the beginning of 
the present winter, by the Chief Fire Warden. 

Of the necessity of some such regulations as the following, 
in a cit}^ like Detroit, no one, who has witnessed the disas- 
trous effects of accidental fire, can for one moment doubt, 
and we would respectful i}'- suggest to the occupant of every 
building in the city, the importance of a strict observance of 
these precautionary rules, a due regard to which, might, un- 
der Divine Providence, often prevent accidents by fire. It 
should also be remembered that neglect to attend to the reg- 
ulations of the city authorities, in regard to accidents by fire, 
involves a forfeiture of the amount of the policy of insurance, 
in case of loss by fire of the insured. 

From the laws of the Common Council. 

1. No ashes can be kept in a wooden vessel, within ten 
feet of any building, fence, or wooden structure ; nor in a 
metal .n- earthen vessel, unless it is covered. 

2. Every stove pipe must be close jointed. It must enter 
a chimney of brick or stone, and be made close where it en- 
ters. Where it passes through a partition of wood, it must 



112 APPENDIX. 

be through a crock of earthen or stone, or some non-conduc- 
tor of heat. 

8. The floor under every stove must be covered by a 
board, faced with iron, zinc or tin, with a space under the stove 
of eight inches ; or by a box filled with brick, sand or clay, 
three inches thick from the floor. The stove must be free 
from dangerous cracks or openings, and properly fitted with 
doors. Wood within twelve inches of any stove or fire must 
be protected by a covering of metal or plastering, and no 
wood, protected by metal, must be nearer than eight inches. 

4. The floor under stoves standing in shops where shav- 
ings or wood chippings are made, must be protected by a box 
filled with brick, sand or clay, five inches high from the floor, 
and for six inches outside the bottom of the stove. 

5. All stove pipe holes, openings and cracks in chimneys, 
must be closed by a sheet of metal, or brick and mortar. 

G. Blacksmith's chimneys must be constructed to prevent 
the escape of sparks, and the side of the building contiguous 
to the forge, for the space of six feet long and up to the roof, 
and on the inside of the roof over the forge for the space of 
fourteen feet square, must be plastered. 

7. Wooden fire boards must be covered on the bottom of 
the inside with a strip of sheet iron, tin or zinc, at least six 
inches wide. 

8. Every occupant of a tenement, whose premises are 
found on examination by a Fire Warden, one week after re- 
ceiving this Notice, not in conformity with the above requisi- 
tions, will be subjected to the fine and costs imposed by law. 

The occupant is requested to preserve and refer to this 
notice.

WAYNE COUNTY POOR HOUSE. 
Situate in the township of Nankin, 15 miles west of De- 
troit, under the directionof three Superintendents of the Poor. 
A brick building, two and a half stories high, 70 feet by 36 
feet is now being erected. 



STAGES. 

WESTERN ROUTE. 

In consequence of the completion of the Central Railroad, 
so far west, travelers, either on the Chicago or Territorial 
road, use that mode of conveyance, as far as suits their con- 
venience, and, therefore, no stage leaves the city for either 
of the two western routes. 

EASTERN ROUTE. 

A Mail Stage leaves Wood worth's Hotel, daily, at 7 
o'clock, A. M., for Buffalo, passing through Monroe, Toledo, 
Lower Sandusky, Norwalk, Cleveland, Erie, Pa.. &c. This 
line connects, at Cleveland, with one for Cincinnati, Pitts- 
burgh, &c. 

NORTHERN ROUTE. 

On the arrival of the cars at Pontiac, from Detroit, a Stage 
leaves for Grand Blanc and Flint River. 

PORT HURON, (VIA MOUNT CLEMENS) ROUTE. 
A Stage leaves Woodworth's Plotel, Mondays, Wednes- 
days and Saturdays, at 5 o'clock, A. M., for Port Huron, and 
goes through the same day. Also, every other week day, a 
Stage leaves Woodworth's Hotel, at 7 o'clock, A. M., for 
Mount Clemens. This is said to be the nearest route to Lon-

don, in Canada, being 60 miles to Port Ehjron, and 60 miles 
from Port Huron to London, making 120 miles. The road 
from Port Sarnia, opposite Fort Gratiot, to London is already- 
graded and is about to be planked the whole distance. 



GRAND RAPIDS AND HOWELL ROUTE. 

A public conveyance leaves Davis's Eagle Tavern, 



for 



Howell, about 50 miles, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 
during winter. In the summer season, the same conveyance 
goes through to Grand Rapids, twice in the week.

furnace or 



Different sizes, from 15 to 50 gallons. 




This article was constructed in consequence of a suggestion 
from the American Institute, that a simple, portable and low 
priced furnace was much wanted by farmers for boiling and 
steaming food, preparing maple or beet root sugar, and for 
many mechanical purposes. 

It is a boiler or Caldron, set in an iron stove or furnace, so 
formed that a space of from one to two inches is left between 
the boiler and the iron'casing, causing the heat in its passage 
to encircle all parts of the boiler, even to its upper edge. 
They are used with a short pipe, the same as an ordinary stove 
and should be furnished with a common wooden cover to fa- 
cilitate the boiling. 

The outside casing being made in sections insures durabili- 
ty. Of the many hundreds sold, the proprietor has not heard 
of one that has broken in use.
