PREFACE. 



Tkk Dikectory of Ckicaco, now presented to the public, may be 
regarded as an experiment. It must be decided hy those for whose use 
and benefit it has been prepared, whether it is required, and can be sus- 
tained. The sudden rise, and unexampled prosperity of Chicago, have 
created a curiosity in regard to its early history, and the incidents tonnected 
with its rise and progess. which considerations of interest, if nothin;; else, 
impel us to embrace every suitable opportunity to gratify. It is believed, 
that heretofore the sources of information have been altogether inadequate 
to accomplish this purpose. While the most strenuous exertions have been 
incuio. in othef places, by misrepresentation and downright falsehood, in 
regard to our circumstances and condition, to induce emigration to stop 

.short or to pass by us, and to divert capital and enterprise into other and 
foreign channels; very little or nothing has been done on our part; to 
remedy the evil, and disabuse the public mind abroad, of the false impres- 
sions thus engendered. Relying upon the reality which the experience of 
every day presents to us, of our condition — upon what we know ourselves, 
of the never failing sources of our prosperity, we have been comparatively 
indifferent in regard to the opinion of others, and blind to the effect of that 
opinion upon our own interest. The ignorance prevailing at the East, 
even in those cities with which we have the most intimate commercial 
relations, in regard to the size, business, and resoures of Chicago, has been 
a matter of surprise to all whose attention has been called to the fact 

' The present is a most important juncture in our affairs. Our prospects are 
brightening— our harbor is nearly completed — the worlc on our canal shortly 
to be resumed— the credit of our state daily, improving — and the finances of 
our City in a most flourishing condition. Our citizens will, we hope, for- 
ever be exempt from the burdens of heavy taxation. Never were the in- 
^ dncements to emigrate and settle here, greater than at the present time. 

?' * It has been thought, that a Directory, containing, in addition to the matter 

I usually introduced into such works, a brief historical and statistical account 
of the City, may, independent of the benefit which our citizen.«».will derive 
from it, in the transaction of business, be made to subser\'c the additional 
pnrpose of conveying to the public abroad a correct impression of the City, 
in almost every particular. 

' The utmost difficulty has been experienced, while preparing the histo- 
rical and statistical parts of the work, in procuring factsand statements from 
authentic sources. Cor»sequently, those parts are le.«s full and perfect than 
they were originally "intended to be — much less so than the author would 
have made them. Errors and omissions will doubtless be discovered through- 
out the work — no aprologies, however, will be necessary to those who *re

acquainted with the difficulties in the way of preparing the first Directory 
for a new city. Such persons would probably be more Riirprised to find it 
in every respect perfect. Nothing has intentionally been left out, tliat could 
add either to the interest or value of the work. • 

The greatest exertion has been made, to give the names of Germans and 
other Old Country people, correctly. Notwithstanding thisj mitstakcs will 
doubtless be discovered in the orthography of these names, owing to the 
fact, that ifiany are unable to spell their own names, in English. It is 
hoped, however, that instances of this kind will not be foimd to be nume- 
rous. In subsequent editions of tlie work the autlior hopes to be able to 
avoid them altogether, and al8d''$p give the names of such persons as are 
not included in this volutfte. 'Zr' 

Chicago, it is to b.e remembere'd,*!* yet in its infancy, and subject to fluc- 
tuation inits population and business, inore so than larger arid older cities. 
So far as this is true, a Directory will be of less utilil}'. It is believed, 
however, that this inconvenience is diminishing, and will be Ims felt here- 
after. Our citizens are becoming sensible of the imnortance of fixed habi- 
tations, and places of businca? — and will speedilv take xneaiBures to secure 
to themselves the benefits and advantages to be clerived therefrotn. This, 
to a considerable extent, has been effected the present season. Nearly 
three-fourths of our population will hereafter, at least for many years, be 
permanently located. Hoping that the book may be made in many ways 
tp subserve a useful purpose, and prove the means of advancing, to some 
extent, the interest of our youn)g but flourishing City, it is most respectfully 
submitted to the public. Our citizens have always been characterised for 
their liber/ilily and public spirit. They will not, in this instance, forfeit 
their claims to this distinction, but will geiierously, and cheerfully lend 
their aid and co-operation, to sustain an undertaking, designed to promote 
4nd advance the interesfe of the whole. 

To those gentlemen who have encouraged the work, both as subscribers 
and advertisers, and those who have afforded infozynation, and contributed 
their advice in furtherance of the design of the publication, the author 
would, in conclusioni tender bis most sincere thaiiKs.

DESCRIPTION 



AND 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 



CHICAGO, Cook County, Illinois, is situnfed on the Southr 
western shore of Lake Michigan, at the head of Lv\ke navigation, in 
lat. 41 deg., 45 sec. North, an* long. 10 deg., 45 sec. West. The 
•^ite of the City occupies a level prairie, on both sides of the majn 
stream, and the North and South Branches of Chicago River, and 
covers an area of about three and a half miles in length. North arid 
South, and two and a half in breadth, East and West, about a mile 
and a half square of which is already regularly built u)}on, and the 
streets opened and graded. The streets are regularly laid out, pa- 
rallel and at rio[ht angles to the Lake, and are wide and spacious. 
There are several extensive blocks of brick buildings, principally 
x>ccupied as business houses and public offices, three and a half and 
four stories in height. The dwellings are principally of wood, 
.m:iny of them, however, very fine specimens of correct architecture. 
The portion of the City extending several miles along the shore of 
the Lake, Ls sandy, and consequently at all seasons, dry. The por- 
tion reni.ived from the Lake partakes of the character of all level 
prairie, being in the spring and fall wet and muddy. The site of the 
City being a plain, does not aftbrd, either from the Lake or the sur- 
roquding country, a very interesting field of vision. Chicago River 
jand its branches, which run through the heart of the City, and ad- 
4nit at all seasons, vessf.ls of every class navigating; the Lake, some 
dislaiice into the interior, afford peculiar facilities for a harbor, and 
pive to Chicago advantages, in a commercial point of view, unsur^ 
4)nssed by any City in the West. The Illinois and Michigan CanaU 
whicli is shortly to be completed, will add greatly to the natural nd-» 
vantages of Chicago, making it a principal point, and necessarily a 
place of transhipment on the great Northern route connecting the 
Atlantic .States with the valley of the Mississippi. The City is 
bounded on the -South and West by a prairie, varying from ten to 
twelve mijes in width, some portion of which is high, and of a very 
superior (|nality. ' It is surrounded in every direction, by a country 
the most productive in the world, already brought into a state of 
successful cultivation, and sending; to its market annually, a vast 
am:)uni of produce of every description for sale, exchance for goods, 
or shipment, as the case may be. The climate is healthy and salu- 
brious, as much so as any in the West. In 1837, Chicago became 

1 



6 DESCRlPTlOff AND 

an incorporated City, the act of the legislature conferring its charter 
being granted and approved March 4th of that year. The City is 
divided into six Wards. The first and second Wards, divided by 
Clark Street, are bounded by the South Branch, Cliica<;o River, and 
the Lake — the first Ward lying East, and tlie second West of Clark 
Street. The third and fourth Wards, divided by Randolph Street, 
are situated on the West side of the North and South Branches — 
the third South, and the fourth North of Randolph Street. The 
fifth and sfxlh Wards', divided by ClarU Street, are bounded by the 
North Branch, Chicago River, and the Lake — the fifth being VVest, 
and the sixth East of Clark Street. The government of the City is 
vested in a Common Council, composed of the Mayor and twelve 
Aldermen, two for each ward, all chosen annually. The Common 
Council, in addition to their other powers and duties, are constitu- 
ted, by virtue of their office, Conunijisioners of Common Schools, 
with power to levy and collect taxes for their support', and to exer- 
*ciee a general supervision over matters pertaining to them. In 
183^, and the beginning of 1833, Chicago had about 100 inhabitants 
and five or six log houses, exclusive of the Fort and its appurte- 
oances. In 1840, the population h;td increased to 4853. The pre-- 
tmnt population exceeds 7580, and may be said at this time to amount 
to 8000. The period of the greatest prosperity of Chicago, was 
from 1833 to 1837. The revulsions and reverses of '36-7, greatly 
T«tarded its grow.ih. It continued, however, though more gradually, 
to increase in business and resources until 1840-1, from which tinm 
business received a new impulse, and it is now enjoying a degree of 
Jn'ospcrity equal to any former period of its history. 
J What the destiny of Chicago is to be, the future can alone deter- 
biSne. Judging by the pa5tt, it seems difficult to assign a limit to 
Its advancement. It presents, undoubtedly, one of the most remark- 
Jtble instances of sudden rise to cotnmercial importance, to be found 
in our age. So rapid, indeed, has been its growth — with such 
gigantic strides has it moved onward in its career, that little space 
is left to mark and calculate the successive stages of its progress. 
We behold it, from a distant and isolated colony, inhabited only by 
tonne five or six families clinging to a lone and solimrV militaVy 
pOfSt for firotection, and dependent for aubiistenC* ufH>n tie uncer- 
tain airival of some chance vessel from Mackinaw, in the sliort spate 
of eight orteu years, become a mighty City, tepming wirh a busy 
and enterprising population, the centre of a widely extended and 
Nourishing commerce. To those who have been here from the be- 
ginning, and there are many among us, the change must be-strik- 
iag-^the contrast between what is, anrf what U'as— -great iqdjeetl. 
History, in this instance, has assumed the air of romance. Truly 
has a change come over the spirit of our dream. It seems diffi- 
cult to reconcile to the mind, that the spo^ now covered wirh 
stately blocl?^ of buildings, and alive in every dlif^ction with a 
busy and eager multitude, actively and profitably employed in the 
numerous departments of our growing commerce, was, so recently, 
a low and marshy plain, of which the wild beasts of the prairies were 
almost the solitary tenants ; that but yesterday, comparatively, the 
wild Jndian held here' his council-fire, and roamed abroad unmolest- 
ed in the enjoyment of his native freedom. 

A country so recent as this cannot be presumed to aflford very

abundant mateHals for history. The incidents, however, connected 
with the rise and progress of the City — the causes which first gave 
it an impulse— and the works of public and domestic improvement, 
upon which its future prosperity depend, together with such events 
ns transpired upon the spot, at an early day, may, perhaps, furnish 
a narrative not altogether uninteresting, and not'^incoosistent with our 
present purpose. For a western settlement, Chicago can claim no 
inconsiderable degree of antiquity. In regard to its earlier history, 
however, very little can be affirmed with any degree of certainty. 
The original proprietors and first inhabitants of the region, were, of 
course, the aborigines. The description of the first appearance of 
the vicinity, by some of its earliest explorers, leads to the belief, that 
they were here from a very early period ; that this was, then, and 
from time immemorial had been, the site of an Indian village; 
Major Long, among others, mentions the number and apparent an^ 
^tiquity of the trails centring here, as evidence of the truth of this 
1 position. It is to be regretted that so little can be ascertained with 
certainty, of the lives and fortunes of the various tribes which, at 
diflerent times, flourished on the spot. The melancholy truth, that 
they have passed away from their ancien( dwelling-places, consti- 
tutes about all we know of them.- Those wild races of primitive 
men have been swept away by the onward march of civjlizatiom 
Their rude wigwams and bark canoes have given place to the 
princely dwellings and the stately ships of another and a difTerent 
class of beings. Chieftain and wamor are gone. It is only occa* 
sionaliy that a 'miserable remnant find their way back from th^ir 
new homes in the more distant west, to wituess the transformation 
which is going on in this land of their forefathers. Their visits are 
becoming less and less frequent. Each year witnesses so many 
chaTiges, that soon they will cease to recognise, in the scene, any 
«enihlance to its former self. All will soon be changed — save only 
the beating of the waves on the shore of the lake over which man 
can exercise no control. The Illinois, the Shawnees, and the Pota* 
watamiet will be no more. They may survive for a time beyond 
^e father of waters, or on the shores of the Pacific — but fate seems 
to have decreed, that ultimately the whole race are to become ex- 
tinct. 

The FVench wore the oricrinal discoverers and settlers of the West. 
As early as the latter part of the sixteenth century, while the Eng- 
lish Colonies were yet clinging to the shoves of the Atlantic, almost 
two hundred years ago, th^ir voyages and expediiions to this region 
commenced. In a few years they discovered, and to some extent, 
settled the whole vast region from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, 
a distance of more than 3000 miles. Their uiidertnking- at that early 
day. was one of no little difficulty and dnn^cr. If was, nevertheless, 
commenced with a spirit, »nd c.irried on with ?i degree of persever- 
ance and sagacity, unexampled in the h!j»t(jtry cf adventure. The 
limits of the present sketch will not permit'us to give the details of 
these expeditions. It would be unpardonable, however, to pass 
over in silence the exploits of those brave and self-devoted men, 
through whose exertions the resources and capabilities of the West 
were first made known. It is to be feared that they have failed to 
receive, at the hands cf posterity, the reward to which their achieve- 
ntents entitle them; that, while we have been lavish of praise upon 



8 DESCRIPTION AND 

the discoverers of other portions of our country, we have failed to 
pay suitable tribute to the memory of these first pioneers in the 
region we inhabit — these pilgrim fathers of the West. If, to pene- 
trate thousands of miles into the heart of a continent, bidding adieu 
for months to the comforts of home, braving hunger and thirst, and 
the savage, can be said to command our admiration and gratitude, 
then these nien have distinguished claims upon us who are now 
reaping the fruits of all their toils and suflTerings. The earliest of 
these expeditions, as well as the most distinguished, were those of 
Marquette and La Salle. The former occurred in the year 1673, 
and resulted in the discovery of the Mississippi, the original object 
and design of the expedition. To this expedition, is probably to be 
ascribed the honor of paying the first visit to Chicago, it being the 
prevailing opinion that it passed through here on its return to 
Canada, ascending the Illinois River and crossing to Michigan. 
Perrot, by some writers, is believed to have been here a few years 
earlier. The story of Marquette, who voluntarily remained among 
the Illinois Indians, and found at last a solitary grave on the eastern 
shore of Michigan, at the mouth of a river bearing his name, is 
familiar to all. 

With the expedition of La Salle, in 1680, Chicago cannot be so 
clearly identified. This expedition, however, wad productive of 
more important consequences to the West, generally, than the pre- 
ceding one. The Mississippi was navigated to its mouth; forts at 
favorable points, erected ; the shores of the great Lakes thoroughly 
explored ; and permanent settlements, at several points, commenced. 
The expeditions whicli succeeded those of Marquette and La Salle, 
were of minor importance, being principally designed to sustain the 
colonies already planted, and to prosecute the traffic which had 
previously been entered into with the natives. Although no posi- 
tive testimony exists on the subject, it is highly probable that Chi-^ 
cago was frequently visited by the French, during their pass-ages to 
and from the West. Having once been here, they must ever after 
have appreciated the advantages of the situation, both in a com- 
mercial and military point of view. Their sagacity in these matters 
seldom failed them. In their magnificent scheme of a chain of njili- 
tary posts, connecting Canada and the Gulf of Mexico, Chicago; 
doubtless, formed an important link, being at the head of the Lakes, 
and affording so many facilities to attain the interior. 

The French Colonies in the West, sustained by emigration, con- 
tinued fronri the first to prosper and flourish. Under-ihe general 
tiame of Louisiana, which they assumed at a later period.ihcy were 
tnade the frequent subject of grants from the crown; to InJividualsi 
aDd companies. About 1717, they are fouiid the property of th© 
celebrated Mississippi Company, which, at the time, gave rise td 
much speculation thTouehout Europe. 'At the close of the Frencll 
and Indian War, Louisiana was transferred, by treaty, to the Eng- 
lish. During the RevahJtion, the Territory comprising the present 
State of Illinois, become, by conquest, the property of Virginia, by 
which State it was erected into'a County, under the name of the 
County of Illinois. 

Virginia ceded it to the General Government at the time of the 
cession of Western lands, by the Eastern Stales. In 1800, the pre* 
sent State of Illinois became a part of Indiana Territory, having a 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. , 



population of about 3000. In 1809, it became a Territory by itself^ 
with a population of 12,282, and in 1^18, was admitted into the 
Union. 

On the third day of August, 1795, at the treaty held by General 
Wayne, with the Pottawatamies and other tribes at Greenville, the 
title to six miles square of territory, at the mouth of Chikajo River» 
as it is expressed in the treaty, was oblainec^-by the United Stafes. 
From the language of this treaty, it appears that a fort hnd formerly 
stood on the land thus ceded, which renders it pretty certain, that 
the French, who alone could have required anything of the sort» 
had made a settlement here, many years before. Jn 1804, Fort 
Chicago was built on the site of the present Fort. About the same 
time, the American Fur Company, hnving been organised shortly 
before, established a trading station, under the protection of {he 
Garrison. The little colony thus planted here, some forty years ago» 
for military and trading purposes, may be regarded as the first at- 
tempt to effect a permanent settlement of Chicago. The regular and 
monotonous life led by thi^ little community, for the first eight years» 
afforded few incidents worthy of particular notice. In 1812, how- 
ever, the war broke out with England, the^conseq-uences of which 
were peculiarly disastrous to all the Western settlements, exposed 
as they were, especially those in Illinois, to the hostility of neigh- 
bx>ring tribes of Indians. The causes which conspired to render the 
Indians hostile at this time, are generally well understood, .and may 
be traced to the machinations of Tecumseh, and other English emis- 
saries, who^ influence extended through all the tribes, being felt as 
far as the remote regions of Lake Superior. Chicago being then 
&n extreme frontier post in this direction, and the country in every 
direction around it, full of Indians, with a force inadequate to its 
defence, was considered so much endangered as to requii'e its evacu- 
ation. This being resolved upon at Detroit, Capt. Heald, the officer 
loi coihmand' here at the time, received an order to abandon the Fort, 
kud proceed with the troops to Fort Wayne. This evacuation, ob 
account of the fatal consequences which foflowed it, and the fact,' 
that s5me of our present citizens were themselves herei and had 
friends here at the time, has always been regarded with interest, aiMl 
may be considered a rnemorable event in the annals of Chicago. 
The transaction may, therefore, not inappropriately be given some<^ 
what m detail, in this connection. Beside the Garrison, there were 
several f^irailies residing here at the time. Mr. John Kiiizie, fathef 
of John H. Kinzie, Esq., present Register of the Land Officie in this 
City, occupied a house on the North side of the River, a little East 
of the present site of the Lake House. The evacuation took place 
6n the 16th of August, six days after the reception of the order from 
Gen. Hull, and the day before the disgraceful surrender of Detroit, 
by tlyit officer, and not after, as some writers have erroneously ref- 
presented it. In the mean time, a larger body of Indians, mostly of 
the Potawatamie nation, had assembled in the vicinity of the Fort. 
This has generally been represented as a voluntary movement on the 
piart of the Indians — biTt the most correct^pinion appears to be, that 
Capt. Heald collected them himself, requiring of them an escort for 
the troops, and promising to give them the factory stores, a conside-

be the fact, or not, some understanding of the kind undoubtedly

existed on the part of the Indians, and the non-fulfilment of the 
agreement, by Capt. Heald, accordins: to their expectations, may 
have occasioned the line of con-.luci which they subsequently 
adopted, which proved fatal to the lives of 55 of the party, and had 
well nigh Grought about the destruction of the whole. The 
stores on hand were composed in part of a quantity of liquor,- and 
some arms and amunition. These it was deemed imprudent to give 
the Indians — and they were destroyed, a part being thrown into the 
River, and Ihe residue deposited in a well within the Fort. One of 
the arms thus disposed of, a brass piece, was found a (e\v years since, 
by some people employed in dredging the River — another, it is said, 
remains there to this day. The stores not destroyed were distribu- 
ted to the Indians. Under these circumstances, about nine o'clock, 
on the morninor of the 15th of August, the party, composed of 64 
regulars, 12 militia, and several families, amounting m all to about 
70 persons, left the Fort, under the escort of Capt. Wells, and about 
30 Miami Indians. Their route lay along the beach of the Lake, 
between the water on the left, and a succession of sand hills on the 
right. They had proceeded about a mile and a half from the Fort, 
and had attained a point a short distance beyond the present resi- 
dence of Mr. H. B. Clarke, and were advancing, unconscious of-dan- 
ger, when Capt. Wells, who it appears, had strayed for some pur- 
pose, some distance from, the main body, discovered the Indians in 
ambush behind the sand hills. At the same time, another party 
was seen' interposing in the rear, between them and the Fort, which 
they had just left. The 'alarm was immediately given — the dead 
march struck up, and the troops marched directly up the bank, upon 
the Indians. The action did not commence, as has generally been 
represented, by firing, on the part of the Indians. After firing one 
round, the troops charged, and succeeded in dispersing the Indians 
in front. But the disparity of numbers was too great. The most 
determined bravery was displayed by the troops, but it could avail 
little against the superior force opposed to them, protected by the 
sand bills bbhind which it had entrenched itself. In 15 minutes, 
oearly the whole party were killed or wounded, and all the baggage 
in the possession of the enemy. Capt. Heald drew off his men. into 
the open prairie, and took possession of a llight^ elevation, out of 
reach of the bank, and every other cover. The Indians, after some 
consukaiiou, made signs for Capt. Heald to approach them. He 
was met by a Potawatamie Chief, called Blackbird, who requested 
him to surrender, promising to spare the lives of the whole party, 
in case of compliance. After some parley, the terms were agreed 
to, and the arms delivered up. The survivors were marched back 
to the Indian encampment, near the Fort, about the spot where 
State Street now opens to'the River, and where the present Market 
is loc&ted. Here, some of the prisoners, those who had been 
wounded, were murdered in the most shocking manner, by the 
tquaws, who appeared to take great delight in exercising their knives 
and besmearing them in the blood of their unfortunate victims. 
The small number surviving, were distributed, according to the cus- 
tom of the savages, among the different members of the tribe. Mr. 
Kinzie. Sen., however, whose family, from the first, had been pro- 
tected by some friendly chiefs, although he was himself engaged in 
the action, with the troops — succeeded in procuring the release of 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 11 

Capt. Heald and lady, who were sent by him to St. Joseph, and 
thence to Mackinaw, whence they made their escape. The remain- 
der of the prisoners were retained, but, it is said, were treated with 
great kindness, and most of them surrendered to the British, at 
Detroit, in the following spring. The day following the action, 
the Indians burnt down the Fort, and dispersed. Such are the 
leading particulars of this unfortunate action, collected, principally, 
from an eye-witness of the whole. Capt. Heald has been subjected 
to^rauch blame, a portion of which was undoubtedly merited. His 
management of the Indians was injudicious throughout, and the 
destruction of the stores, to say the least, imprudent. The evacua- 
tion, under existing circumstances, was remonstrated against, by Mr. 
Kinzie and Capt. Wells, both of whom, from long intercourse with 
the Indians, had become familiar with their character, and were 
enabled to anticipate and foretell the result which ensued. Capt. 
Wells had been bred an Indian warrior, and was a brave and skilful 
soldier. He unfortunately fell early in the action, and was found 
with his face blackened, after the manner of the Savages, when they 
meet with disappointment. 

The Fort was rebuilt in 1617, when it took the name of Fort 
Dearborn. It was occupied, except at short intervals, by a Gar- 
rison, until 1837, when, the Indians having generally left the coun- 
try, it was finally evacuated, and has never since been re-occupied 
as a military post. It remains in much the same condiiion as in 
•37, except the pallisadcs, which were removed, the past springs and 
their place supplied by a handsome fence. It has since been occu- 
pied by officers and agents in charge of the public works, and their 
families. Fort Dearborn being almost the only memento of the 
past, in the midst of so many creations of the day — the necessity of 
any alteration in its appearance is to be regretted. 

Until 1832, and even so late as 1833, little or nothing was done 
towards making a commencement j)f the City — it probably not en- 
tering into the imagination of an^* one, previous to that time, that a 
town of any importance was to be here at all, at least, not for many 
years. In 1S3'2, its appearance and condition was much the same 
as in 1823. when Major Long, who visited the place that year, de- 
scribes it " as pre'seniing no cheering prospects, and containing but 
few huts, inhabited by a miserable race of men, scarcely equal to 
the Indians, from whom they were descended — and their log or bark 
houses as low, filthy, and disgusting, displaying not the least trace 
of comfort, and as a place of business, aflbrding no inducements to 
the settler — the whole amount of trade on the Lake, not exceeding 
the cargos of five or six schooners, even at the time when the Gar- 
rison received its supplies from Mackinaw." This picture, though 
perhaps too highly colored, presents, in the main, a correct view of 
Chicago, in 1832, In 1830, there had been a sale of Canal lots, the 
best bringing only fifty or one hundred dollars-, many of which have 
since become the most valuable in the City. Up to about that time, 
the present most business, and densely populated part of the City, 
was fenced, and used by the Garrison, for some purpose of hus- 
bandry, or pasturage. So late as '35 or '6, the fires usual on the 
prairies in tlie fall, overran the third and fourth wards. There were 
only some five or six houses, built mostly of logs, and a population 
of less than one hundred.

12 DESCRIPTION AND 

Ode of ch<|^e houses, formerly the property of the Fur Company, 
was, until a short time past, occupied by Col. Beaubien. About 80 
rods to the south of that, stood a house, once occupied by Colonel 
Owings, but since washed away by the Lake. A house, known as 
*' Cobweb Castle,** on block No. 1, was formerly the abode of Dr. 
Alexander Wolcott. 

The dwelling of Mr. John Kinzie stood £ast^f the Lake House. 
A log building at the corner of Dearborn and South Water Streets, 
and the onbe celebrated tavern of Mr. Mark Beaubien, on the site 
of the Sauganash. generally known as the £agle, together with a 
building on block 14, and a cabin, occupied by Robinson, the In- 
dian Chief at Wolf Point, constituted all the buildings, except the 
Fort, to be found here in 183*2. Sometime this year, however, 
Kobcrt A. Kinzie built a store at Wolf Point, the first frame build- 
ing in Chicago. In 1834, several brick buildings were erected. 

The commerce of the place, up to this period, was equally insig- 
nificant. In fact, there was none, unless the traffic of the Fur Com- 
pany, can be dignified with that name. Ves^sels occasionally ven- 
tured here, but so seldom, that the arrival of a schooner was an 
event of no little moment, and created a sensation throughout the 
coipmunity. The year 1832, may then be regarded as the period 
from which to date the commencement of the City. Many causes, 
the Indian war among them, conspired, about this time, to briiig 
Chicago into general notice. What was called the ** Western 
Fever,*' had begun to rajs;e generally, throughout the counti7..-- 
Thousands were flocking from the East, to seek homes in the West. 
The first premonitions of the speculatinie: mania, had manifested 
themselves. Eligible sites Jor^towns and cities, were sought out, 
and eagerly appropriated. The superior advantages of Chicago, in 
thrs period of general enquiry, when enterprise was universally 
aroused, and incited by the hope of sudden wealth, could not long 
escape public attention. 

The attention of Congress had been called to the importance and 
necessity of a harbor, and an appropriation was confidently relied 
upon at the next session. Gen. Scotr, who explored the country 
during the Indian war, took a lively interest m this work, and ad- 
dressed a letter in relation to it, which was subsequently laid be- 
fore Congress. The construction of the Illinois and Michigan 
Canal, had also been finnlly resolved uj)on by the State legislature. 
Active measures were being tak-en to survey the different routes, 
and to estimate the cost of the various plans proposed. Hence the 
commencement, and completion of this important work at no distant 
day, might confidently he relied upon. The resources of the State, 
too, were beginning to be more generally known, and better ap- 
preciated. The most alluring reports of the chancier of the soil 
—its productiveness — the facilities for making farms on our prairies 
—together with the salubrity of the climate, were circulated far and 
wide. The most strenuous exertions were made, and with the most 
signal success, to promote emigration. Enterprise, stimulated by 
interest, and the hope of gain, was aroused, calling forth and con- 
centrating upon this one object, all the resources and capabilities of 
the age. Capital was enlisted, and credit and unlimited confidence 
invoked to its aid. Money, owing to excessive bank, and even pri- 
^^ate issues, was abundant, and loans to any anrount w«re effected

with ibe greatest ease. The West suddenly became the centre of 
men*s thoughts and wishes, and Chicago, as the most important 
point in the West, the goal to which all directed their aspirtions. 

Such are some of the prominent causes which may be said, at 
the period referred to, to have given the first impulse to the City. 
That it grew and prospered ^s it did, under their operation, will 
excite no surprise— the result could not well have been otherwise, 
lis progress, accordingly, until about '37 has no parallel — it was 
rapid in the extreme. Buildings went up as if by magic — stores 
were openetl by the hundred, and speedily filled with merchandize ; 
people of every calling and*pursuit in life, laborers, mechanics, and 
professional men, influenced by a common purpose — the hope of 
success in their several spheres of action — came together here, and 
entered at once with a zeal and activity into the schemes of improve- 
ment projected.. The sale of Canal lots in 1830 has been already 
mentioned. In 1833, a great Indian payment was held here, near 
the present site of the Lake House. In the latter part of this year, 
the work on the harbor was commenced — and during the sameyear, 
the present Light-house was erected, the old one having fallen ^ 
down. In 1835, the population of the place was said to amount to 
5,500, a computaciol) which probably included transitory persons, a 
great many of whom were here at the time. The actual popula- 
tion, however, that year, could not have been much less than 3000. 
In 1S36, another sale of Canal lots took place, which was attended 
with much excitement, and occasioned a large collecti<^ of people 
from distant quarters. The prices were extravagantly high. In 
1836, 3 branch of the State Bank was located here. On the 4th of 
July, 1831, the ceremony of breaking the first ground on the Canal, 
took place at Canal Port, in presence of a large concourse of spec^ 
tators. During the winter of '36-7, the act to incorporate the City, 
passed the State Legislature; and in April succeeding, the first elec* 
lion under the Charter was held, which resulted in the choice of 
\V. B. OouEJv to the office of Mayor. The growth of commerce, 
thus far, kept pace with everything else. The community were 
dependent, during the first few years, entirely upon supplies from 
abroad; this, together with the great influx of emigration, and the 
travel which began to set in this direction, gave employment to a 
considerable amount of shipping, and Steamboats and Schooners 
began to ply regularly between this port and Buff*alo. 

During this brief but exciting period, the community fortunately 
found time to devote some attention to things of greater importance 
than the accumulation of this world's goods. Before or during 
1836, as nxany as six Churches had been organized, and suitable 
buildings provided for their accommodation. These Churches, 
together with such as have since been established, have always 
received a liberal support, and are now in a flourishing condition. 
Neither was the subject of education wholly neglected. The school 
section, which fortunately lay contiguous to the City, and w^s pro- 
portion^ably valuable, was disposed of in 1834, and the avails applied 
to the support of Common Schools. Means for the diflfusion of 
general intelligence were also provided. 

In 1834, John Calhoun commenced the publication of the Chi- 
cago Democrat; and: in the following year, Thos. O. Davis esta- 
blished the Chicago American, both of which papers still exist ; the 

2 .

latter under the name of the Chicago Express, being published 
daily. These papers, together with the Prairie Farmer, Agiiculru- 
ral; the Western Citizen, Abolition ; the North- Western Baptist, 
Baptist; and the Better Covenant, Universalist, which have since 
been started, 'are ably conducted, and have an extensive circulation.' 

The year 1837, is especially memorable in the annals of Chicago, 
as the period of protested notes. It was during this year, that the 
consequences of speculation, which had hitherto operated most 
favorably for the West, were experienced to a raost ruinous extent. 
Chicago was intimately connected wiih speculation, through all 
its progress. It was in its incipient stages, at the period of the com- 
mencement of the City ; but a disposition and tendency to it was 
apparent even then. It raged %viih great violence during *35— 6, 
and a portion of *37, at which time it t>;ave color and direction to 
most business transactions. 

The history of this singular delusion is replete with instructive 
incidents. It seems unaccountable to the more sober judgment of 
these times, how men, under any circumstances, could have been 
led so far astray — how prudence, foresight, and sagacity could, to 
such an extent, have lost their dominion and control over the human 
mind. But so it was. The rapid and unprecedented rise in the 
Talue of real estate, and the certainty of that rise, exerted a most 
seductive influence ; very few were found able to resist the tempta- 
tion; ail classes of people ultimately abandoning the usual avoca- 
tions of society, devoted themselves exclusively to speculation, and 
hazarded their all upun this sea of chance. This wild spirit found 
its way ultimately into the halls of Fegislation, and controlled the 
conduct and policy of states, as it had done that of individuals. 
It was under the influence of this spitit that those stupendous 
schemes of internal improvement originated in many of the new 
states, which have entailed upon subsequent times the evils of debt 
—taxation— and in some cases, national disgrace and dishonor.— 
Speculation led, in short, to the pei-petration, on all hands, of acts 
of folly and absurdity, seldom before heard of.. The sources of 
wealth being regarded as inexhaustible, naturally created extrava- 
gant ideas of prosperity, and aflordcd to all the ap|Tarent means of 
indulging in every species of expenditure. It would be useless to 
follow' speculation through its stages, as one act of absurdity suc- 
ceeded another in rapid succession. — Are not these times and their 
consequeuces written in efl'aceless characters upon the memory of 
every reader ? 

But the day of writh and retribution was at hand. Corifidence 
and credit, too long ahusod, refused any longer to lend their aid. The 
unfortunate victims of the delusion were suddenly awaliened from 
their dream of wealth to the certainty of -almost universal bank- 
ruptcy and ruin. Thousands suddenly called upon to investigate 
the condition of their affaiVs, which, in the excitement of the mo- 
ment, no one thought it necessary to attend to, found themselves 
involved to the extent of thousands and hundredsCf-thousands of 
dollars, and their real estate, from which alone the means of pay- 
ment could come, depreciated in value, in. fact unsaleable at any 
price. Thousands, from affluence, were reduced— without warning 
or preparation — to poverty ; some struggled for a time with their 
destiny, but the evil day came at last ; and scarcely one, ultimately,

«ui-vivcd the catastrophe. The comparatively small humber of 
those who did finally escape the ordeal, it has been observed were 
indebted more to chance and good luck than to any unusual endow- 
ment of prudence and sagacity. The ablest business men of the 
age — those in whose judgment and capacity in ordinary times we 
should unhesitatingly repose the most implicit confidence, ventured 
as far and hazarded as much as any in this dangerous game. 

To Chicago, in an especial degree, was the stroke which was thus 
inflicted upon the business interests of the country injurious and 
calamitous. It was to her a season of mourning and desolation. 
Many of her most business and enterprising citizens were insolvent- 
all, to a greater or less extent, enibarrassed in their circumstances. 
She had gone on hitherto in a state of unintermpted prosperity — no- 
thing had thus far occurred to check the progress of improvement. 
Could that stale of prosperity have continued, Chicago would, by this 
time, have ranked among the proudest cities of the land. But ca- 
lamity came suddenly and unexpectedly ; and, for a time, she 
quailed under its effects. 

But she was not, and could not be entirely prostrated. Her 
position was too favorable, and her redeeming powers too abundant 
to permit her very long to be seriously affected by any calamity, 
however great. She had, in common with the west, gained much 
by speculation. What had been accomplished could not be un- 
done. Her works of improvement 8ui*vived — her |)opulation was 
left to her, and more than all her great and inexhaustible natural re- 
sources remained to bear her on to the consummation of her high 
destiny. Her citizens returned to their habits of industry and eco- 
nomy, from which the force of evil example had seduced them. 
Her business men, taught a severe lesson by the past, bent all their 
energies, and caljed into requisition all their experience to build up 
their injured credit, and to restore their business to a safe and per- 
manent foundation. The consequences began gradually to develop 
themselves. But little was gained during '38-9; but in '40, things 
assumed a more favorable aspect, and since that time the increase 
of business and. population has been most rapid. This will be 
more fully illustrated by a reference to the census of different peri- 
ods, and to the tabular statemerits of the amount, value and charac- 
ter of the export and import fi-ade of the place during each year, 
contained in another part of this volume. 

It is with feelings of pride and satisfaction that the friends of 
Chicago can refer to the experience of the past six years, as furnish- 
ing an enduring monument to the industry, enterprise and persever- 
ance of her people, and as establishing, beyond controversy, the ex- 
istence and permanency of her sources of prosperity. If, with an 
impoverished community, at a period of general prostration of the 
business interests of the country, under the pressure of heavy mu- 
nicipal and enorrrious State liabilities, with resources comparatively 
undeveloped, and the works of public improvement unfinished, 
Chicago has accomplished so much, what may not reasonably be 
expected when these and all obstacles are removed from her way? 

A glance at her geographical position will convince the most 
sceptical that Chicago is but the nucleus about which is destined to 
grow up, at no remote period, one of the most important commer- 
cial towns in the West. Situated on the waters of the only great 



16 DE3CKIPTION AND 

I 

Lake exclusively within the United States — being the termina- 
tion, on the one hand, of the navigation of the Lakes, and on the 
other, of the Illinois and Michigan Canal — affording great natu- 
ral facilities for a harbor, by means of Chicago River and its branches 
—the excelling site for a capacious ship basin in the very heart of 
the town, at the junction of said branches — having dependent upon 
it a region of country vast in extent," and of extraordinary fertility, 
it must always be the dividing point between two. great sections of 
the Union, wnere the productions of each must meet and pay tri- 
bute. It is susceptible of the easiest demonstration that, the route 
by the Lakes, the Canal and the Western Rivers, when once the 
cnannels of communication are completed, will, for cheapness, 
safety and expedition, possess advantages superior to every other. 
Among the advantages of this route, the climate, so faliorably adapted 
to the preservation of produce, deserves especial notice. 

The commercial interests, then, of the Fast, and especially of the 
great valley of the West, will be intinc ely^ connected with Chica- 
go, as a place of transhipment and deposit — and the value and 
amount of the trade in produce, m lunober, salt, and in every des- 
cription of merchandize which will centre here, is beyond our pre- 
sent powers of computation, and can only be measured by the future 
wants and capabilities of the country. 

Those important works— the harbor and canal — upon which so 
many interests depend, justly demand the most serious conside- 
ration; and it is highly gratifying to allude to their present most 
flattering prospects. It is now reduced almost to a certainty, that 
Chicago, after the expenditure of so much solicitude, and a large 
amount of money, is speedily to be furnished with a Safe, commodi- 
ous and permanent harbor. Under the supervision of our present 
able superintendent, the work is prosecuted with a degree of vigor 
that must be crowned with success. 

^ The principal difficulty encountered during the progress of the 
harbor has been occasioned by the deposition of sand and the for- 
mation of bars at its mouth. The plans heretofore adopted to sur- 
mount this difficulty have failed upon trial, and are now abandoned. 
Two plans have been proposed the present season, which have at- 
tracted considerable attention. One of these, suggested by Captaia 
McLellan, the present superintendent, recommends the construc- 
tion of a pier north of the present ones, at a distance from them 
greater than the length of the present bar, and is based upon the 
supposition that the sand would form a bar around its head, and not 
reach the entrance of the harbor. The other plan, which has been 
adopted, and is now being carried into effect, proposes the extension 
of the north pier, in the form of a circle, a distance of 990 feet, 
which will bring it into the line of the original direction of that pier. 
A good channel for vessels of every class will then exist from the 
head of the south pier, around the bar, that pier being extended no 
farther into the Lake. If this plan succeed, Chicago will be fur- 
nished with a harbor, not inferior to any on the Lakes. 
m'We have the most flattering assurance that the work upon our 
other and not less important branch of public improvement — the Illi- 
nois and Michigan Canal — will be resumed the coming season, un- 
der the operation of the late law of the Legislature. The history 
of this §reat work, which was contemplated from the first settle- 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 17 

ment of the State, and has been the subject of legislation for more 
than twenty years, presents a remarkable instance of the obstacles 
which frequently oppose the acconipUshinent of the greatest under* 
takings. The first survey of the canal was made in 18*23. In 1825 
a bill was passed to iucor|iorate the Illinois and Michigan Canal 
Company ; but no stock being taken under the charter, it was re- 
pealed at the next special session. In 1827, act of March 2, Con- 
gress appropriated each alternate section of land whhin five miles 
of the prepared line. In 1829, a board of commissioners was orga- 
nized, with power to determine upon the route, and to discharge 
other duties connected with the work. Chicago, Ottawa, and other 
towns on the line were biid out by the board, and sales of lots 
etfected. The .work was commenced in the year 1836, and was sus- 
pended in 1842. The law under which this work was contracted, 
provides that Ihe canal shall be GO feet wide at the surface, 40 feet 
at the base, and six -feet deep; that it shall commence at Chicago, 
on canal land, and terminate at the mouth of the Little Veimillioa 
River, making a distance of 95^ miles. It was to be constructed 
upon the deep cut principle, and to be fed from the waters of Lake 
Michigan. By a recent survey, a method has been discovered by 
which it is believed that a sufficient supply of water can be pro- 
cured from Fox River for a canal upon the shallow cut plan. The 
sutn of about $5,000,000 has thus far been expended upon the 
%vork. To complete it upon the plan contemplated by the late law, 
sibotit $1,600,000 more has been estimated to be necessary. If that 
law goes into effect, as present appearances s^em clearly to indicate, 
the canal will be finished in about three years. We shall then have 
the greatest continuity of inland water communication in- the 
world — extending from the Atlantic Ocean by the Erie Canal, along 
the chain of Lake?, through our canal, the Illinois and Mississippi 
Rivers, to ths^CiJulf of Mexico. This will be a glorious consumma- 
tion for Illinois, aiid for every interest connected with her. The 
vast resources connected with the canal itself, the resources which 
Mt will develope throughout the Stute, will enable her in a short 
time to discharge all her debts—to establish her credit — and to re- 
deem her reputation. Already has (he prospect of the completion 
of this work eflecied a revolution in publip sentiment, and ha» 
caused emigration to set strongly in this direction. The reports 
which have been circulated in regard to the circumstances and pros- 
pects of the State have been discovered, upon examination, to be 
ionnied in falsehood and misrepresentation. The public are now sa- 
tisfied that the climate is as healthy and salnbriou^as any portion of 
the West — that the soil is infinitely su|>erior — that our taxes, even un- 
der the effect of that severe ordeal through which we have passed, 
uniformly have been less than any of the adjoining States and Ter- 
ritories-^and that the prospects of the value of real estate, the high 
price of (iroduce, and the facilities of a convenient market, wfll ren- 
der it the most desirable State in the Union. We may trust that 
the day is not far distant when Illinois will assume her proper posi- 
tion among the States of the Union — when her friends will be en- 
abled to hurl back the imputations which have been cast upon her 
character — when she can no longer, with a shadow of truth or justice, 
be stigmatized as the land of speculators and repudiation ! Until 
then, she must calmly bide her time,

18 DESCBIPTIOn AND 

In conclusion of our subject, it may be proper to refer more p^f* 
Cicularly to some important considerations and facts connected with 
the present condition of Chicago, hitherto only incidentally alluded 

to. 

The city, for some time past, has been considerably embarrassed 
with debt,* in consequence of the necessity which has existed of 
bofrowing money to carry on its works of inrprovement. The ex- 
isting liabilities of the city amount to $8977.55, viz. : bonds to 
Strachan & Scott, $5000 ; bonds for Clark Street Bridge, $3000 ; 
bonds for barrier to the Lake, and interest, $977.65. The increas- 
ing revenues derived from taxation and othersources will soon afford 
the means to extinguish these liabihties entirely. The tax of the 
present year, at the rale of assessment of this year, amounts to 
$7852.45 ; the school tax, at half a mill per cent., to $685.24. A 
large amount of city property, which heie:ofo»*e has been unpro- 
ductivCr will, the next year, become taxable, particularly the canal 
lands and the reservation. The amount of the tax for thecoming 
year, unless a reduction should take place, may safely be estimated 
at $12,000. In addition to this, there is now in the treasury, 
unappropriated, > $1854, and the current expenses, paid. The 
management of the fiscal affairs of the city, by our present 
common council, is entitled to the highest praise. The finan- 
icial ability of the mayor has been recently tested in the ma- 
nagement of a negotiation at New York, by which a reduction of 
three per cent, has been effected upon the interest of the largest 
debt of the city, and may be regarded as equivalent to a new loan,. 
The credit of the city is now established upon a permanent foundation, 
and cannot be easily shaken. City Scrip for some time has been at par. 
> Our common schools are worthy of especial notice. They are 
sustained in part by the school fund, and in part by taxation. The 
fund originally amounted to about $39,000 ; but nearly onohaff of 
this amount has been lost by injudicious loans. These schools are 
justly the pride of the city,- and the interest which is manifested 
in them is an evidence of the importance which the community at- 
taches to education.- We have also a medical college chartered by 
the Legislature in 1837, and several schools sustained by private 
muniticence. Independent of these, we have several other institu- 
tions, which are exerting a beneficial influence. Among them, 
the Mechanics' Institute and thfe Youni^ Men's Associatioa aret- 
prominent in importance. These institutions, while sustained as 
they have been hitherto, will be both useful and ornamental to the 
city. Both of them have libraries, Ciorttaining, in the aggregate, 
about 2500 volumes. The Mechanics' Institute has a department 
in the Prairie Farmer, devoted exclusively to the interests of the 
mechanical arts — the Young Men's Association a reading room, 
where most of the publications of the day are regularly received, 
and accessible to the public. There is, in addition to these libraries, 
a circulating library, containing about 1500 volumes. We have 
other societies designed to meet the intellectual wants of the com- 
munity, among which may be mentioned the Chicago Lyceum" — 
the oldest literary society in the place. Our tlieatre— a very pretty 
one — has been in operation the past season, and met with some 
encouragement ; but it must be confessed that, at present, the pros- 
pects of the drama are not flattering. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 19 

The book making and publishing business has been commenced 
tinder favorable auspices. In illustration of the condition of this 
department of trade, we may allude to the third volume of Mr. 
Scammon's Reports of the Supreme Court, printed by 
Messrs. Ellis & Fergus, and now about ready for publication* 
The fact that the execution of this volume is equal, if not superior 
to the two former ones, which were issued from two of the best 
,presses of the- East, is highly creditable to our city, and must be 
graiifyinof to the profession generally. 

In facilities for the accommodation of the travelling public, Chi-*, 
cago has made great progress. In early times our inns were mise- 
rable in the extreme. Now we have eighteen hotels and hou^s of 
public entertainment, some of them large and splendid establish- 
ments, not inferior to any in the West. The great amount of 
travel passing through here during the season of navigation renders 
tavern keeping a very profitable branch of business. 

An exieiisive staging business has grown uphere, and. may be ^-e- 
ferred to as an instance of enterprise and public spirit on the part of 
those engaged in it. The several lines of stages centring here, 
for speed, safety and comfort, are not excelled by any in the coun* 
try. 

The Hydraulic Company, designed to supply the city with pure 
water from the Lake, was incorporated in 1836, and has already 
been the source of great utility to the city, both in supplying water 
Cqr domestic purposes, and for the extinguishment of fires. The 
stock is owned principally by merchants, and in lime fnust become 
the sfOurce of great profit. 

Ship building has been carried on here to some extent. A steam 
propeller, registering 270 tons, was buih the past season, and a schoo- 
ner of about 200 tons burthen, to be called the Maria^ is now in pro- 
cess of construction by the same builder, and will probably be 
launched in thespring. 

It will be seen by reference to the statistical tables of this year, 
that a huge amount of beef has been packed here the present sea- 
soq. We have four large packing houses and all of them have done 
a heavy business thus far. The pork packing is only just com- 
mencing, but will, it is thought, be extensive. 

Much might be said in commendation of our Fire Companies- 
all of which are highly efficient, and bespeak the public spirit of our 
citizens. Our Military Companies will speak for themselves. 

Considering the age of the city, and the fact that our population 
has been derived from almost every nation under heaven, and speak 
so many diflferent languages — the existing slate of its society confers 
distinction upon Chicago. Among the new cities of the west, we 
shall be entitled, in this particular, at the present time, to an envia- 
ble position; the means now adopted to improve the condition of 
society will, at no distant day, enable us to rank with any city in 
the land. Our citizens have always been distinguished for intelli- 
gence and morality — and for the uniform observance of all the pro- 
prieties of life. Our common schools, as the means of educating 
the rising, generation, have always been regarded with the deepest 
interest, have been abundantly provided with the means for their 
support, and are conducted with great ability. The most scrupu- 
lous care is exercised, on the part of the inspectors of public in- 



20 DESCRIPTION, ETC. 

srmction, in the selection of teachers; the schools are subjected to 
frequent examination — ^and their exists much emulation among the 
teachers. 

The most becoming respect, is paid to the institutions and forms 
of public worship. Our numerous churches'^nd religious societies 
enable every one to worship God according to the dictates of con- 
science. 'Whatever opinions may be entertained in regard to reli- 
gion, it will be acknowledged that a decent respect for its ordi- 
nances, is greatly promotive of the well-being and prosperity of any 
community. 

• The peace and good order of society is worthy of remark.— 
Brawls and affrays are extremely rare in our streets — and it may 
justly be said, that a more peaceable and quiet population can no 
where be found. 

It will be impossible in this connection to mention particularly all 
the institutions which testify the public spirit and benevolence of 
th^ community. Reference, however, can be had to subsequent 
parts of the book, where they are more particularly described. 

We have now followed our subject to its conclusion. We have 
attempted to exhibit Chicago as it was in gone-by days — to mark 
the successive stages of its progress— and to delineate its condition 
at the present time. 

We have reason to be proud of our city — not so much on ac- 
count of its relative size among the other cities of the land— of its 
present population— and the amount and value of its commerce^ 
but as affording a sublime illustration of what man, under circum- 
stances, of great difBcuIty and embarrassment, can accpmplish in a 
short space of time. 

In the hope that its future histoi-y may be worthy of the past— 
that the experience of the next and each succeeding year, niay 
justify our favorable predictions of it in reijard to its high destiny— 
we must, for the present, bid adieu to the Queen City or tbr 
r^oRTH West !

CHICAGO DIRECTORY. 



Remarks. — It has been the design to inch^de in this Directory the names 
of all persons and all firms in the City, to arrange them alphabetically; 
and in every instance to give the correct spelling;- There may be cases 
however, where names may have been accidentally inserted in the wrong 
connection, and cases also of incorrect orthography — particularly where 
persons have been unable to spell, and the name hag been written from 
the sound. Abbreviabons, which occur only in a very few words, will 
readily be understood; b stands for between; Rand for Randolph; Mad 
'for Madison; Wash for Washington, &c. The word street, in some 
instances, is omitted. The place of business uniformly precedes the 
residence. 

(mmediate measures will be taken to procure the names of all persons who 
have been accidentally omitted in this volume ; a complete list, corrected 
from time to time, will be kept at the Generaf Intelligence Office, where 
the public can at all times get correct infornoation in regard to the names, 
business, and residence of every inhabitant of tlieCity. Persons finding 
themselves excluded, and persons coming to the City hereafter, are re- 
quested to call at the above place and have their names enrolled. 

Very few of our buildings are numbered, the necessity, however, of this 
can be avoided, if persons occupying buildings permanently, will put 
themselves to the trifling trouble and expense of^ puttluj^ their names on 
their doors.

Containing the names of persons accidentally omitted above,- and 
names banded in too late for insertion in the body of the Direc- 
tory. The compiler cannot flatter himself that all omissions have 
been discovered in time to .supply the deficiency by insertion in 
the addenda; but he trusts that the public will take such interest 
in the work as to report to him, as soon as detected, all names 
excluded from this edition; and also cases 'where names are in- 
correctly given — cases of misdescription of business or residence, 
and all changes and removals which may hereafter take place.

POPULATION OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO, 

ACCORDING TO THE CENSUS 
Taken by J. W. Norris, August 1st, 1843, under the authority of 

the Common Council; tojrether with a comparison of this with 

the census of former periods. 

Remarks — The following census was taken with creat care apd 
accuracy, all persons not permanently residing in the City being, 
in every instance, excluded. The population of the place niijB:ht 
have been made much larger than it appears to be, by the result of 
this census, undoubtedly 8,500, by including a class of transitory 
persons which it is customary to compute as a part of the popula- 
tion of cities ; but it was thought advisable to base the present census 
upou a permanent foundation; the census^ of sul)sequent periods 
will then show the actual amount of increase. By transitory per- 
sons, are to be understood persons not having n permanent resi- 
dence* in either of the wards of the City, and persons living here 
but absent for the time being — by natives of other countries, those 
actually boru abroad, and not their descendants, who are included 



76 



STATISTICS OP CHICAGO. 



"among the natives of this country. It i^ proper to remark, that a 
great increase of population has taken place since the date of this 
census. The present population exceeds 8000.

accuracy, the amount and value ofYhe trade of Chicago, to*the close 
of the present year, 1843. A very serious difficuhy has existed, 
heretofore, in ascertaioins the actual amount of exports and imports 
of the place, especially the exports, owing to the fact, that a great 
many vessels arrive and depart, during ihe season of navigation, 
without being reported at the Custom House, or leaving auy evi- 
der.ce of the character and amount of their cargoes. The existence 
of this difficulty was more particularly set forth in a memorial of the 
Common Council to Congress, in the year 1840, in which they allow 
a deduction of one-third from the amount known, to be added, for 
the amount unknown. It has been thought advisable, in the follow.* 
ing statement, to give only the actual amount, as ascertained from 
record in the revenue office, it being understood, from the above ex- 
planation, that the estimate is considerably belowHie true amount:

MAY be consulted in all cases of Nervous or Mental

him to relieve, or cure, any case of Monomania, Insanity,

destruction of the Mental Organs. His attention to the 
diseases of the Nervous System, such as the St. Vitus' 
Dance, Spinal Affections, has resulted in some remarkable 
Cures. Having been engaged, for the last five years, in 
teaching Mental Philosophy, as taught by Phrenology, 
together with his numerous Phreno Magnetic Experiments, 
enable him to give correct and true delineations of Mental 
Dispositions of different persons; which will be every way 
profitable to all who wish to understand the mysteries of 
their own natures, and how they may use their taleott to 
the best advantage.
