INTRODUCTION. 



In presenting to the public, " New-York as it is, in 
1837," in connection with the Classified Mercantile Di- 
rectory, the Publisher has to acknowledge the many fa- 
vors conferred, and the ready information generally given 
to make this volume complete. Encouraged by the 
favours bestowed on our previous attempts to furnish a 
convenient Manual for Citizens and Strangers, we were 
induced to render the present volume, which is the fourth 
year of publication, still more useful, by adding a general 
Classified Directory, which embraces all the principal 
firms and individuals transacting Mercantile, Profes- 
sional, or Manufacturing pursuits, in New-York, Brook- 
lyn, &c., alphabetically arranged under their respective 
kinds of business. 

Great care and labour have been bestowed on this w^ork 
to make it as correct and complete as possible ; if errors 
or omissions have occurred, it will be our earnest endea- 
vaur to render it still more correct and useful in future 
editions. Persons giving information of errors or omis- 
sions, will confer a favour on the Publisher. 

From a perusal of this volume it will appear, that 
while we are peculiarly favoured by our forms of go- 
vernment, and with institutions for the relief of both 
mind and body, under the control of benevolent indivi- 
duals, which, to be appreciated, want only to be made 
known — it is to be regretted, that we have also mixing in 
society, those who appear to have no regard for any thing 
but their own selfish interests. Prompted either by pride 



IV INTRODUCTION. 



or avarice, they by their sordid conduct, cause distress of 
both mind and body to thousands of their fellow beings. 

The sad reverse which the City of New -York, and the 
country at large has recently experienced, owing to the 
derangement of our currency, and a too anxious desire 
to accumulate wealth, ought to teach us a lesson of mo- 
deration, and cause us, as a people, to avoid a repetition 
of such evils. Too long has the unfeeling usurer, the 
greedy speculator, and the selfish politician had the ascen- 
dancy. Let the poor and the middling classes of society, 
return to industrious and frugal habits, and leam wisdom 
from sad experience. 

With these remarks, the Publisher respectfully sub- 
mits this volume to the public, hoping it will be found 
useful, and meet with approbation, 

New-York, May, 1837,

GENERAL DESCRIPTION 

OF THE 
CITY AND HARBOUR OF NEW-YORK. 



SITUATION AND EXTENT. 

The City of New- York, the commercial emporium of 
the tjnited States, is situated on New- York Island, for- 
merly called Manhattan Island, (at the confluence of the 
Hudson or North River, with the strait called the East 
River, which connects Long Island Sound Avith the At- 
lantic Ocean. It is about equi-distant (or less than twenty 
miles) from the western extremity of Long Island Sound 
on the north-east, and the Atlantic Ocean on the south. 
The City Hall is in latitude 40 deg. 42 min. 40 sec. north, 
and longitude 74 deg. 1 min. 8 sec. west, from Greenwich. 
The City and country are of the same limits, comprising 
the whole island, which extends from the Battery on 
the south, to Kingsbridge on the north, 13i piiles, or 
71,700 feet. The average breadth is 1 mile and 3,220 
feet, or 8,500 feet. The greatest breadth is on the line of 
88th-street, and is 12,200 feet, or about 2i miles. The 
area of the island is about 14,000 acres. 

On the north and east it is separated from Westchester 
County by Harlosm River, over which are three bridges, 
namely Harlsem, Macomb's, and King's bridges. The 
tide flows through this river or strait ; the western termi- 
nation of which, where it connects with the Hudson, is 
called Spuytcn DuyveVs Creek. The strait called the 
East River separates the island from Long Island on the 
east. On the south is the bay or harbour ; and on the 
west is the North, or Hudson River ; with the state of 
New-Jersey on the opposite shore. The few small islands 
in the harbour are also attached to the City ; the principal 
of which are Governor's, Ellis', and Bedlow's Islands; 
also, Blackwcll's Island, in the East River, occupied by 
the City Penitentiary establishment, and Great Barn 
Island, near Hell Gate. 



10 DESCRIPTION OF THE CITT AND HARBOUR. 



HARBOUR, &C. 

The harbour of New- York is safe and commodious, it.< 
circumference being about 25 miles, and the largest ves- 
sels may come up to the wharves at the City. On the 
bar, at Sandy Hook, the depth of water, at high tide, is 
27 feet, and at low water 21 feet ; from thence to the City 
the channel is from 35 to 50 feet. The Light House at 
Sandy Hook on the New- Jersey shore, is distant 18 miles 
from the City ; and vessels frequently anchor in the outer 
harbour, or Raritan Bay. The entrance to New- York 
harbour is called " The Narrows," between Staten 
Island on the west, and Long Island on the east, 8 miles 
from the City. Sands' Point Light House, on Long 
Island, is situated near the western extremity of Long 
Island Sound, 20 miles N.E. of the City. The harbour is 
but seldom obstructed with ice. The difference between 
high and low tides, at the wharves, averages about seven 
feet ; and for the convenience of commerce several 
steamboats are employed in towing ships to and from sea. 
The principal commercial business is transacted on the 
east side of the City ; the East River being the most con- 
venient and safe part of the harbour. The width of the 
East River is from one third to one half of a mile to the 
opposite 'shore of Brooklyn, Long Island. The Hudson, 
or North River, is one mile in width to Jersey City, and 
a mile and a half to Hoboken, (New Jersey.) 

FORTIFICATIONS. 

The principal fortifications for the defence of the har- 
bour are at the Narrows, about 8 miles from the City. 
On the eastern, or Long Island shore, are forts Hamilton 
and La Fayette, the latter of which, (formerly called Fort 
Diamond,) is built on a reef of rocks, two hundred yards 
from the shore, where the former is situated, and has 
three tiers of guns. The strait, or Narrows, is here about 
one third of a mile in width, and on the Staten Island, or 
western shore, opposite the two fortresses just named, 
are fort Tompkins and fort Richmond. The United 
States Government have expended large sums of money

harbour. The principal fortifications on ihe East River 
are at Throg's Point, where is situated Fort Schuyler. 

There are batteries on Bedlow's and Ellis' islands, on 
the Avestern side of the harbour ; and on Governor's 
Island, (which is distant 3.200 feet from the City at the 
Battery, and contains 70 acres,) are Fort Columbus and 
Castle Williams. The former is a strong work in the 
shape of a star, on the south side of the Island. The 
latter is on the north-west point of the island, built of 
stone, in a circular form, 600 feet in circumference, and 
60 feet in height, with three tiers of guns. There is also 
a battery on the south-west side, commanding the entrance 
through Buttermilk Channel, There are barracks on 
the island for the accommodation of a considerable num- 
ber of soldiers. 

TELEGRAPH. 

A Telegraph is established on the heights of Staten 
Island, communicating by signals with one in the City on 
Holt's Hotel. 

DIVISIONS AND GOVERNMKNT. 

The City is divided into 17 wards, which are particu- 
larly defined in another part of this volume. Each ward 
elects annually an Alderman and an Assistant Alderman, 
who are formed into a Common Council of two boards. 
The Mayor is elected annually, in April, (agreeably to 
an amendme'nt of the constitution,) by the people.

THE CITY PRISON, 

Formerly the Bridewell, is situated west of the City 
Hall, near Broadway ; the above constitutes all the public 
buildings in the Park. 

P£NITENTL\RY, 

Situated on Blackwell's Island, is an immense stone 
edifice, erected a few years since. The main building is 
four stories high, surmounted by a square tower ; two 
wings, each extending upwards of 200 feet from the 
centre building, are also four stories high. The interior 
is fitted up with rooms for the accommodation of the 
keepers, w^orkshops in which the prisoners are obliged 
to labour, and numerous cells ; the whole being con- 
structed in the most substantial and secure manner. 

ALMS HOUSE. 

The new Alms House is situated at Bellevue, on the 
East River, two and a half miles from the City Hall, and 
is a spacious edifice of stone, with numerous buildings as 
appendages. The location is remarkably salubrious and 
pleasant. There are several farms on Long Island, at- 
tached to the Alms House establishment.

GAS WORKS. 

THE NEW-YORK GAS-LIGHT COMPANY 

Have their works located at the corner of Canal and 
Centre streets, and have at present laid down, in the prin- 
cipal streets, 26 miles of iron pipes. The public build- 
ings and stores which are supplied Avith gas by this Com- 
pany, pay for, the same at the rate of 70 cents per 100 cubic 
feet consumed. The expense of gas for a store, with four 
lijrhts, is about S60 per year. (For capital, &c. see 
page 155.)

14 NKW-YORK AND HARLiEM RAIL-ROAD. 



THE MANHATTAN GAS LIGHT COMPANY "WORKS 

Are located on the North River at the foot of Eighteenth- 
street. This Company have laid their main pipes through 
Eighteenth-street, Ninth-avenue, Hudson, Bleecker-street, 
Sixth-avenue, Waverly-place, Broadway, Bowery, 
Broome, Centre, and Grand-streets ; and are now laying 
them through other important streets. (For capital, &c. 
see page 155.) 

NEW-YORK AND HARL.EM RAILROAD COMPANY. 

This Company was incorporated in 1831, and has since 
been so amended that its capital, originally ^350^000, is 
now 81,150,000. 

The route selected for its road is from Prince-street, in 
the Bower}^, through the 4th Avenue, to Harlaem River, 
with a branch through One hundred and Twenty-fifth- 
street to Ninth Avenue, and thence to the Hudson River 
at Manhattan ville landing. 

The first running of the cars upon this road was in 
November, 1832, and they travelled no further than 
Fourteenth-street. In June, 1833, their route was ex- 
tended to Murray Hill. In May, 1834, the route was 
further extended to Yorkville, where it has continued 
ever since. The number of passengers in the cars down 
to that date was about 125,000. From May to November, 
1834, the number of passengers was 176,000, and the re- 
ceipts from fare, S16,000. From 1st November, 1834, to 
1st November, 1835, the number of passengers was about 
400,000, and receipts from fare, S37,000. From the 1st 
November, 1835, to 1st November, 1836, the number of 
passengers was about 600,000, and the receipts of fare 
something above S52,000. In the year ending the 1st 
January, 1837, the amount of fare was S54,000. 

When the route shall be extended through the tunnel 
over the beautiful embankment and bridge constructed to 
Harlaem, the number of passengers will, probably, greatly 
increase. 

The tunnel commences at the southerly side of Ninety- 
first-street, and terminates at the northerly side of Ninety- 
fourth-street, and will be, when completed, 844 feet in 
length, 24 feet wide, and 21 feet high in the centre. Each 
end of the tunnel will be finished with a handsome stone 
facing, so as to give it a conspicuous and pleasing appear- 



SDPPLY OP WATER. 15 



ance. The embankment commences at One hundredth- 
street, and extends to One hundred and sixth-street. 
This will be a most substantial work, as the whole will be 
supported by slope walls of dry masonry. At the crossing 
of the streets there are handsome arched carriage-ways, 
supported by stone pillars. At the northern termination 
of the embankment, the bridge commences, extending 
from One hundred and sixth-street to One hundred and 
eighth-street. 

This tunnel is said to be as spacious as any other exca- 
vation of solid rock made in modem times, not excepting 
the excavation of the Simplon, made under the Emperor 
Napoleon ; and the approach to it at both ends through a 
rock, 52 feet in depth, is an object not less interesting 
than the tunnel itself. 

There is scarcely to be found a more beautiful and 
picturesque scenery in any part of the world, than the 
view Hell Gate audits neighbourhood presents, in riding 
over the bridge and embankment north of the tunnel, at an 
elevation of thirty feet above the level of the avenue. 

It is expected that this road will be travelled by the cars 
to Harlaem sometime in the month of July, 1837. 

Passengers' Ticket Offices, at No. 241, Bowery; and at 
the corner of Eighty-sixth-street and Fourth Avenue. 

SCPPLY OF WATER. 

The City is destitute of a supply of good and whole- 
some water, and various plans have been proposed, at 
different times, for obtaining an adequate quantity of an 
element so essential to the health, convenience, and com- 
fort of the citizens. The Bronx and Croton rivers have 
been suggested as sources of supply ; also the Passaic, at 
Paterson, New" Jersey. The quantity of water required 
for the supply of the City, is estimated at over four mil- 
lions of gallons per day, or 20 gallons for each person, in- 
cluding manufactories, stables, &c. At an early period 
of the history of the City, it was found that the well water 
was deteriorating in goodness. The fact is noticed in an 
able report madeby Mr. Weston in 1799. There are nu- 
merous wells, with pumps in all parts of the City ; but the 
pump water is generally considered bad and deleterious in 
its character, south of a line from the Hudson River 
through Spring-street, to the Bowery and Third Avenue, 



16 £.UPPLy OF WATEil. 



and thence to Thirteenth-street and the East River. In 
the remaining parts of the City, it is generally indif- 
ferently good ; biU it is also annually losing its purity. 

For washing, rain Avater is generally used by the citi- 
zens, most of the houses being provided with good cis- 
terns. Many parts of the City are now supplied with 
water, for the table, brought from the upper wards in 
casks. On the East and North Rivers, in some instances, 
it is pure, and in others its goodness is but little better than 
the present well water. The tables of the wealthy are 
supplied from this source, while the poorer classes have 
to resort to such wells and pumps as are in their neigh- 
bourhood. It has been ascertained that there are now 
brought to the City daily by drays or water carts, 600 
hogsheads, for which there i.spaid one dollar and twenty- 
five cents for each hogshead, (or about one cent per 
gallon, amounting to S750 per day, or $273,750 per annum, 
for water from that source. The sum paid for water is 
annually increasing, owing to wells and springs con- 
stantly losing their purity. Many of the large hotels pay 
from S200 to 450, annually, for water, and the smaller 
classes of boarding and private houses pay from S15 to 
^50, annually, for the same. 

The shipping in the port are principally supplied with 
water from'Brooklyn, Long Island, and a small quantity 
from New-Jersey and Staten Island. The supply re- 
quired for the shipping is estimated, from careful in- 
quiries, to amount to 415 hogsheads per day, or 129.850 
hhds. per year, (8,183,895 gallons,) which at 31 and 50 
cents per hogsheads, is $IG0 per day, orS50,080 paid per 
year. 

RUNHATTAN WATER WORKS, 

In 1790 the Manhattan Company was incorporated, 
with a view to supply the City with pure and wholesome 
water. The charter is perpetual, and the capital over 
two millions of dollars, (see page 98,) the surplus funds 
being employed in banking. 

CITY RESERVOIR. 

The Corporation of the City, in order to provide a 
supply of water for a part of the City, for the extinguish- 
ment of fires, have recently caused the construction of an 



SUPPLY OP WATEP.. 1*7 



extensive reservoir, which is situated in Thirteenth- 
street, near the Bowery. 

The diameter of the well, from which the water is pro- 
cured, is 16 feet, its depth is 112 feet, 97 of which are 
excavated in solid rock ; its bottom is 62 feet below com- 
mon high tide. On the east side, and within 12 feet of 
the bottom of the well, there is a horizontal passage, 4 
feet by 6, extending into the rock "^5 feet ; and on the west 
side, a similar passage, 75 feet long, with a branch 25 
feet. The object of these excavations is to increase the 
quantity of water, which rises in the well to within 12 
foot of the surface of the ground, and the whole contains 
175,170 gallons. 

From the well, the water is raised by a steam engine 
of 12 horse power, into an iron tank in a building of an 
octagonal form. The bottom of the tank is 83i feet 
above tide. It is 44 feet in diameter, 20^ feet high, and 
will contain 233,169 gallons. From the tank the water is 
conducted into the mains by curved pipes, of 20 inches 
diameter. The total cost of the works, exclusive of 
pipes, was S42,238 ; and the annual expense is $3,165. 
From the reservoir, iron pipes, from 6 to 12 inches in 
diameter, have been laid down through many of the 
principal streets, to the extent of over 9 miles, or 47,066 
feet, at an average expense of about two dollars per foot. 
(The cost of one mile mile of pipe, of 12 inches diameter, 
is SI 1,245.) 

By an experiment which has been made, it is ascer- 
tained that water from the City Reservoir can be thrown 
from the fire plugs over the houses in any of the lower 
parts of the City, or south of the reservoir, or in its vi- 
cinity. 

PROPOSED SUPPLY OF WATER PROM THE CROTON RIVER. 

Surveys of routes and estimates of the expense of 
bringing water to the City from the Croton River has 
been made by order of the Corporation. An Act passed 
the Legislature of the State, May 2, 1834, "to provide for 
supplying the City of New-York with pure and whole- 
some water," by which the Governor and Senate were 
authorized to appoint five citizens, to be called "Water 
Commissioners," who were to examine and consider all 
matters relating to the subject, causing survey? to be

made, and adopting such plans as they might deem most 
advantageous. The said Comruissioners have reported 
in favour of obtaining water from the Croton River, 
which has been approved of b)' the Common Council, 
and submitted to the voters of the City at the Charter 
election in 1835 ; 17,330 voted " yes," and 5,963 '• no," 
leaving a majority of 11,367 in favour of supplying the 
City, as proposed, with " pure and ic/iolesome water.'' 

The stream which can be brought to the City in an 
aqeduct is estimated to afford a daily supply of 32 millions 
of gallons. The present demand of the City is probably 
not more than ten millions. The total length of the 
aqueduct, which it ib; proposed to construct of mason work, 
will be about 45 miles, and the estimated expense (ex- 
clusive of pipes in the City) is about five millions of 
dollars. 

CEMETERIES AND MONUMENTS. 

In 1823, a law was passed to prevent interments south 
of Grand-street, and a penalty of $-250 fixed for each vio- 
lation of the same. 

Many of the churches have burying grounds and vaults 
in the upper part of the City, belonging to congregations 
of different denominations. An extensive cemetery has 
been laid out on the Fifth Avenue, near the three mile 
stone, containing ten acres of ground. Occasional inter- 
ments take place in the vaults belonging to families at- 
tached to churches in the lower part of the City, the 
friends of the deceased paying the penalty of .S"250. 

Among the numerous monuments in churches and 
churchyards, we may name the following: The monu- 
ment to Bishop Hobart, in Trinity Church ; to Thomas 
Addis Emmet, (an obelisk 30 leet high) in St. Paul's 
Churchyard, where are also the monuments to Major 
General Montgomery, and George Frederick Cooke, the 
celebrated tragedian. In Trinity Churchyard is the 
monument to Captain James Lawrence, who fell in the 
contest between the U. S. frigate Chesape&ke and the 
British frigate Shannon, during the last war.

MAY DAY, &C. 

The usual lime for moving established by general 
custom in the City of New- York, is on the first of. May. 
Tenants who intend vacating their premises are required 
to give the landlords notice the preceding quarter day, 
the first of February ; then houses are engaged for the 
ensuing year, to be taken possession of the first of May ; 
rent generally payable quarterly. To such an extent 
does this custom extend as to be a great evil, M^y- 
Day being proverbial for confusion, amounting to partial 
suspension of business. If tenants would insist upon 
leases for a number of years, the evil, in a measure, 
would be remedied. 

Housekeepers are required by the laws of the Corpo- 
ration to abate ail nuisances about their premises ; coal, 
ashes, and dirt of every description is required to be 
given to cartmen employed by the City authorities ; 
chimne3''s are required to be swept every month, or else 
subject the occupant to fine in case of their taking fire ; 
side-walks must be kept clean and unobstructed. Sca- 
vengers and chimney-sw^eepers are all licensed by the 
Corporation, and have regular rates of charging esta- 
blished by laAV.

STREETS. 

Several streets have been widened and materially im- 
proved in appearance during the past year. Beaver- 
street has been extended through the Burnt District^ in- 
tersecting Pearl at the corner of Wall-street ; Mill-street 
has been connected with William-street in the same 
neighbourhood, and it is proposed to change the name of 
Mill to Soiith William. Platt-street has been extended 
from Gold-street to William. Fulton-street has been 
widened on the south side between Broadway and Gold- 
street. Gold-street has been widened between Fulton 
and Frankfort streets. Spruce-street has been widened 
from Gold-street to Nassau. Chapel-street has been 
widened between Murray and Franklin streets, and it is 
proposed to change its name to West Broadway.

jNsw-york university, 

Situated between Washington Place andWaver]}^ Place, 
■fronts Washington Square towards the west, forming a 
noble ornament to the city, being built of marble, and 
exhibits a specimen of the English collegiate style of ar- 
chitecture. {See Frontispiece.) 

This building has just been completed, after a labor of 
several years; it is one hundred feet wide, and one hun- 
dred and eighty feet long. In front this oblong is di- 
vided into five parts — a central building, with wings 
flanked by towers, one rising on each of the four corners 
of the edifice. This central building or Chapel is supe- 
rior to the rest in breadth, height, and character ; and 
is somewhat similar to that of King's College, Cam- 
bridge, England ; a masterpiece of pointed architecture, 
and the model for succeeding ages. It is fifty-five feet 
broad, and eighty-five feet deep, including the octangular 
turrets, one of which rises at each of the four corners. 
The two ends are gabled, and are, as well as the sides, 
crowned with an embattled parapet. The Chapel will 
receive its principal light from a window in the western 
end. This window is twenty-four feet wide, and fifty 
bigh. It has eight lights and two embattled transoms. 
The heads of the lights are cinque-foiledinaplainarch, 
and the divisions above are quatre-foiled. Over the 
head of the window is a drip-stone, with plain returns. 
From the central building, or Chapel, wings project right 
and left, and are four stories in height, flanked by towers 
of five, supported by angular buttresses of two stages, 
running above an embattled parapet, and are at the top 
themselves embattled. The windows in the wings have 
square heads, wath two lights, a plain transom, and the 
upper division tre-foiled. The heads of the windows 
are labelled, and have plain returns. The lower range 
of windows is set on a tablet, which serves as a base, and 
the two ranges above are set on strings, w^hich return 
around the turrets, and siop against the" buttresses. The 
principal entrance is under the great western window, 
through a richly moulded and deeply recessed portal, 
flanked by butresses of two stages, the upper stage setdi- 
Agonally, and rising above an embattled parapet. The 
doors are of oak, richly panneled, and filled with tracery 
of open work, closely studded witli bronze.

THE BURNT DISTRICT. 

In the First Ward, bounded by Wall-street, the East 
River, Coenties-slip, and thence in an irregular line to 
the corner of William and Wall streets, embraces all the 
ground burnt over during the great conflagration of 
Dec. 16 and 17, 1835, when about five hundred stores and 
dwelling-houses were destroyed, many of them of the first 
class of buildings. The public buildings destroyed 
were the Merchants' Exchange and the South Dutch 
Church ; the other buildings consumed were principally 
wholesale stores, which contained an immense amount 
of merchandise, most of which was burnt, amounting in 
all, including the buildings, to about eighteen millions 
of dollars. 

This ground is now nearly all rebuilt on, most of the 
stores being occupied, many of which are entirely fire- 
proof, constructed in the most durable manner, princi- 
pally of brick. 

UNFINISHED EDIFICES. 

THE merchants' EXCHANGE, 

Now erecting in part on the site of the Exchange 
Building, which was destroj^ed by fire Dec. 17, 1835, 
embraces all the ground between Wall, William, Ex- 
change-place, and Hanover-streets, covering the entire 
block. 

The building, when finished, will be of the Grecian 
Ionic style of architecture, the exterior of which will be 
constructed of blue Gluincy granite, in the most chaste 
and durable manner, three stories high, besides the base- 
ment. In front, on Wall-street, will be a recessed por- 
tico, with 18 massive columns, 38 feet in height. 

The interior will be fitted up for a public Exchange 
Room, which will be 80 feet in diameter, having four 
recesses, making an extent of 100 feet in depth and 
breadth ; the room is to be 80 feet in height, surmounted 
by a dome resting, in part, on eight Corinthian columns 
of white marble, 41 feet high, and lighted by a skylight 
25 feet in diameter. There will also be rooms for the 
accommodation of public and private offices; the whole 
to be constructed so as to be entirely fire-proof, under the 
superintendence of Mr. Isaiah Rogers, the architect of 
the building.

CUSTOM HOUSE. 

A new Custom House is now erecting on the site of the 
old one, at the corner of Wall and Nassau streets, ex- 
tending to Pine-street. The following is a description of 
the rontemplated building. 

The building is to be 177 feet long, and 89 feet wide; 
and the form and order of the building to be similar to 
that of the Parthenon at Athens. It is to stand on a base- 
ment story, ascended by nineteen steps from Wall-street, 
and six steps on Pine-street. There are to be eight Gre- 
cian doric columns at each front, and fifteen columns and 
antee on each side attached to the walls. There is also 
to be a second row of six smaller columns back of and 
parallel with those of the main front, leaving a space of 
ten feet between the two rows, and nine feet between the 
inner row and the front wall of the building. Back of 
the two extreme columns of the inner row there are to be 
two antse, and six antae attached to the walls of the rear 
front, leaving a space of eight feet and a half between the 
columns and antee. There will thus be twenty-four out- 
side columns, five feet eight inches diameter at the bottom, 
and thirty-two feet high, including the capital, and eigh- 
teen antae on the two sides of the same height, five feet 
wide, and three feet nine inches projection from the walls. 
The six inner columns of the main front will be four feet 
eight inches diameter at bottom, and the antse to corres- 
pond. The building is to be two stories high, except the 
great business hall, part of which is to be vaulted as high 
as the roof will permit, and its centre finished with a 
dome sixty-two feet in diameter. This hall will occupy 
the centre of the building, and will be one hundred and 
fifteen feet long, leaving a small vestibule at each end to 
enter from. It is to be seventy-seven feet wide in the 
centre part, which is a circle of seventy feet in diameter, 
with the length and breadth of the room extending be- 
yond its circumference to these dimensions ; and the four 
parts so extended beyond the circle are thirty-three and a 
half feet wide, leaving six rooms and three circular stair- 
cases in the four corners, the two largest rooms to be 
twenty-four by twenty-one feet each, besides a square 



24 RECENT IMPROVEMENTS. 



Staircase in the rear, and three vaults for papers at the 
two ends of each vestibule. The same division of the 
room is made in the second story. Nearly the same num- 
ber, shape, and sizes of rooms are had in the basement, 
as above in the other stories, leaving all the area of the 
same shape and size as the great hall immediately about 
it ; with the addition of sixteen tinted doric columns to 
support the vaulting and the pavement under the dome of 



the great hall. 



HALLS OF JUSTICE. 



This edifice is now in progress of erection, and nearly 
completed, on an extensive scale, occupying the whole 
of the block bounded by Leonard, Elm, Franklin, and 
Centre streets, (formerly the Corporation Yard,) and is 
253 feet 3 inches in length, by 200 feet 5 inches in width. 
The interior combines accommodations for the Courts 
of Sessions, Police, Grand Jury, House of Detention, Re- 
cords, City Watch, District Attorney, Sheriff, Clerk of 
the Court," and other officers belonging to the different 
branches of the Institution, together with the necessary 
offices for cooking, washing, watering, warming, &c. 
The whole designed by Mr. John Haviland. 

The four Facades, as well as the entrance hall, are 
executed in the Egyptian style of architecture, with Hal- 
lowell granite. 

The principal front has a dislyle portico of four co- 
lumns, with palm-leaved capitals. Above the capitals 
are square dies, upon which rests the architrave, orna- 
mented with a large winged globe encircled by serpents. 
The architrave is surmounted by a cornice, composed of 
a bold Scotia, enriched with reeded Triglyphs and a 
banded Torus; and which, being of the same height 
with that of the similarly embellished wings, forms with 
them one continued line. Moreover, the banded mould- 
ing of the cornice descends in the form of a roller on all 
the external angles of the edifice. Both the wings are 
perforated with five lofty windows, extending the height 
of two stories, and finished with diminished pilasters, 
which support a cornice over each, composed simply of 
a bold Scotia, enriched with a winged globe and serpents. 
The lateral fronts on Leonard and Franklin streets 
have each two projecting Pylones or Porches, with two 



RECENT IMPROVEMENTS, 2& 



columns : the one on Leonard-street adjoining the prin- 
cipal front, is the entrance to the Debtors' ward, and the 
opposite one on Franklin-street is the entrance to the 
Police ward ; the other two corresponding porches next 
to Elm-street, form the carriage entrances to the House of 
Detention. These porches are 54 feet wide, and their 
columns and entablatures correspond with those of the 
principal front, but the caps and shafts of the columns are 
less enriched. The recess in both these lateral fronts is 
six feet, and is relieved by five windows corresponding 
in character with those of the principal front, but of less 
proportion and enrichment, the Scotia being finished with 
reeded Triglyphs only, instead of the winged glebe and 
serpents. The approach to the windows on these fronts 
is guarded against by a neat railing in keeping with the 
architecture. The rear or front on Elm-street having no 
entrance or windows, is simply relieved by seven narrow 
recesses in imitation of embrasures, and a railing in the 
same style as those on the lateral fronts. 

A terrace surrounds the whole inclosure, raised ten 
feet above the level of Centre-street, from which you 
ascend eight steps of a truncated and pyramidal form, to 
the platform of the portico, from which you ascend also 
twelve steps, between the intercolumniation of the rear 
columns to the entrance hall. This hall is 50 feet square 
and 25 feet high, supported by eight columns, ranged be- 
tween two rows with their antse placed on the opposite 
walls. These columns bear (he character or an order 
taken from the colonnade of the temple of Medynet 
Abou. Attached to the antes opposite these columns, 
the architect originally designed to place the Egyptian 
caviatides, so highly spoken of by the French artists in 
Napoleon's great work on Egypt, published by Pauc- 
konche ; and he feels assured that the Board will yet be 
of his opinion, and finally adopt these splendid and im- 
posing figures in this entrance hall, as nothing else will 
be wanting to perfect the edifice ; their capitals are orna- 
mented with the leaves and flowers of the Lotus. The 
floors are arched and laid in mosaic of an Egyptian 
character, governed in form by the compartments in the 
ceiling to which each belongs. 

The principal courts, jury, witness, and other business 
rooms, are connected vvith, and leading into the entrance

hall. On the left side are doors and passages commu- 
nicating with the grand jury room, offices for register, 
clerk of the court, district attorney, and sheriff, debtors' 
ward and witness rooms ; and on the right side are dis- 
posed the magistrates' offices, court, and witness rooms, 
watchmen's dormitories, police court, officers' rooms, 
and cells for nightly commitments. The centre leads tO' 
the court of sessions, (including two jury rooms, and se- 
parate gallery capable of containing an audience of 3vK) 
persons;) the whole well ventilated and lighted, and in a 
situation the least liable to be disturbed by the noise of 
the adjoining streets. 

The Court of Sessions is connected with the House of 
Detention, and has external galleries of communication 
with every part of the building, independent of the puMic 
thoroughfares. 

The House of Detention is a distinct and isolated build- 
ing, 142 feet in length by 45 in width. It contains 148' 
cells, divided into four distinct classes for prisoners, in- 
cluding baths, and rooms for male and female, white and 
black, vagrants. The lower cells are 6 feet 9 inches 
wide, 11 feet high, and 15 feet long, diminishing 19 
inches in length in each story ; they are provided with 
cast iron water closets, hydrant, water cock, ventilators, 
and are warmed by Perkins' hot water pipes, (introduced 
and now in successful operation in the new Peniten- 
tiaries at Philadelphia and Trenton, by J. Haviland, ar- 
chitect.) The floors, and ceilings, and galleries are 
formed of slabs from the North River flagging ; the doors 
and window jambs of iron ; and the entire cells are other- 
wise finished on the most approved plan for security, se- 
clusion, ventilation, economy of supervision and watch- 
ing. The corridors are ten feet wide below, and widen 
at each story to 19 feet at the summit, affording a free 
ventilation and uninterrupted view of every cell door, 
from the observatory. A bridge leads across from the 
House of Detention to the prisoners' seat in the court- 
house. By reference to the specifications and drawings, 
it will be seen that every part of the building is calcu- 
lated to be executed in the most substantial and approved 
manner, with the best materials of their kind ; and that 
no pains or expense is spared to effect all the desired ob-

jects of the Institution, with the aid, experience, and best 
talent that the country affords. 

The building is generally fire proof by ceilings and 
floors of arched masonry. 

The site on which the building is erecting, is formed 
of niade ground, every precaution having been used to 
render the foundation secure by the introduction of iron 
ties, inverted arches, and heavy timbering. The whole 
area was excavated several feet below the water level, 
large timbers were placed together, and range timbers at 
right angles with these-laid several feet wider than the 
respective walls. 

Lastly, the whole superstructure to the roof has been 
erected during the past season, afibrding it sufficient 
time to come to its proper bearing. The several stories 
of the House of Detention with their weighty stone 
floors, have been completed some time, without showing 
any appearance of cracks or partial settlement. 

BROOKLYN CITY-HALL, 

Now erecting, is situated at the intersection of Fulton, 
Court, and Joralemon streets, occupying an entire block, 
forming a scalene triangle of 269 feet on Fulton-street, 
250 on Court-street, and 222 on Joralemon-street. The 
exterior of the building is to be constructed of marble, 
and to have porticoes on the three fronts, with columns 
36 feet 6 inches high, ornamented with capitals of the 
Grecian order, from the design of the Tower of the Winds, 
resting on a pedestal base, 17 feet high, which when 
finished, will be 62 feet from the ground to the top of the 
cornice. The angles are to be surmounted by domes, 
and rising from the centre of the building, will be a 
tower 125 feet high, which will be enriched with a cor- 
nice and entablature, supported with coryatides standing 
on pedestals. The whole will have a most splendid and 
imposing appearance, when finished. 

The interior will be finished in the most chaste and 
<lurable style of architecture, calculated to accommodate 
the different public offices, courts, &c., attached to the 
City of Brooklyn, The whole arrangement is under the 
direction and superintendence of Mr. C, Pollard, the 
architect of the building.

BROOKLYN CITY OFnCERS; 35 



CITY OP BROOKLYN. 

The City of Brooklyn is situated on the East River 
(736 yards wide,) directly opposite New-York, in King's 
County, on the extreme west end of Long Island ; and is 
the third place, in point of population in the State. 

The City is bounded north by the City and County of 
New-York ; east by the township of Bushwick ; south 
by the townships of Flatbush and New Utrecht; and west 
by New- York Bay.

By the last report it appears that during the year 1836, 
there have been 1987 patients admitted into the hospital 
in the city of New- York, who with the 189 remaining 
there on the last day of the year, 1835, make 2176 per- 
sons who have received the benefits of the Institutioa 
during the year last past; a larger number than usual, 
being 175 more than in the year preceding, and 261 more 
than in the year 1834. 

Out of this number of 2176 patients, there have been

LUNATIC ASYLUM,

The Bloomingdale Asylum for the Insane is pleasantly 
situated near the banks of the Hudson River, distant 
seven miles from the city, and has attached to it forty 
acres of land, laid out in gardens, pleasure grounds, gra- 
vel walks, and farm lots, well adapted lo the unfortunate 
inmates. 

The building is erected on one of the most elevated 



MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS. 61 

and healthy sites on the Island, and sufficiently retired 
for the comfort and convenience of the patients. 

These are under the immediate superintendence of a 
skilful physician, who has devoted a number of years to 
this particular branch of medical science, and has visit- 
ed the various lunatic establishments in England, France 
and Italy ; examining the condition of the patients, and 
inquiring minutely into the mode of treatment pursued 
therein. 

The ordinary affairs of the house are managed by a 
warden and matron, and a sufficient number of kind and 
careful nurses, are always ready to attend to the wants 
and comforts of the patients. 

The whole establishment is under the general direc- 
tion of a Committee taken from and appointed by the 
Board of Governors of the New- York Hospital. They, 
for the information of those who may be desirous of en- 
trusting to the charge of this institution such of their 
friends as they think may be benefitted thereby, embrace 
this opportunity of stating, that, in all cases, before a pa- 
tient can be received into the house, an order for admis- 
sion must be obtained from two magistrates, who require 
for this purpose, the testimony of two credible witnesses, 
that the insane person is not fit to go at large. 

This order must be presented to one of the undersign- 
ed, who will arrange for the board of the patient, the 
price of which varies according to circumstances; and 
will then give directions for his or her reception. 

It is particularly requested that those who apply may, 
if practicable, come possessed with a history of the pa- 
tient, and the immediate cause of the disease. 

The ground on which the buildings are located, is 
elevated one hundred and fifty feet above the Hudson 
River, and from the cupola is a fine prospect of the 
Island, the North and East Rivers, and the adjacent 
country for fifty miles. The principal edifice is of 
stone, three storses high, 210 feet long, and 60 feet wide. 
The cost of the whole was over S200,000. 

The numbers in the hospital report, given above, are 
exclusive of the maniac patients, of whom 121 have been 
admitted into the Bloomingdale Asylum, and, with 144 
remaining on the 31st December, 1835, make 2G5 who

have received the benefit of the Asylum during the past 
year. 

Out of the patients above enumerated, 66 have been 
cured, 26 have been discharged improved, 16 others at 
the request of their friends ; 14 have died; one eloped, 
and 142 remained in the Asylum at the close of the year. 

Two hundred persons can be accommodated at the 
Asylum. The charges are from S2 toSlO per week, for 
board, &c. No free patients are admitted. Applica- 
tion for admission of lunatics must be made at the New- 
York Hospital, Broadway, where information can also 
be obtained, respecting the proper time and days, for 
visiting this interesting Institution. 

James M'Donald, Resident Physician. 

Application for admission of patients must be made to

among the students. A fine collection of casts from the 
antique statues belongs to the Academy ; among which 
are the Farnese Hercules, and the Antinous of the Bra- 
schi palace, both of colossal size, the only casts of these 
celebrated antiques in the western world.

The American Bible Society was formed in 1816, for 
the sole object of increasing the circulation of the Holy 
Scriptures, without note or comment. Its seat of opera- 
tion is at No. 115 Nassau-street, New- York, where Bi- 
bles and Testaments are printed, bound, and issued. 
More than two million of copies have been issued in 
twenty years. The Society is under the direction of a 
board of thirty-six Lay Managers, (Baptists, Episcopa- 
lians, Presbyterians, Episcopal Methodists, Reformed 



76 RELIGIOUS, BENEVOLENT, AND 



Dutch, and Society of Friends,) who meet once a month, 
without pay, a.nd inspect and give directions in relation 
to all the affairs of the Institution. They publish a 
monthly account of all moneys received, and once a year 
give, in a printed report, a full history of all their pro- 
ceedings. 

The Society has now nearly one thousand Auxiliary 
Societies, scattered through every State and Territory in 
the Union. The Auxiliaries receive books at the verj^ 
lowest rates at which they can be made, and when una- 
ble to buy are furnished with them gratuitously. 

Any person becomes an annual member, and has a 
right to buy books at cost, by paying S3. A member for 
life pays S'30, and a director for life ^150. 

The Society's houses, built by funds given for this ob- 
ject, cover one hundred feet square of ground. They 
contain the offices of the Secretary and the General 
Agent, the Managers' Hall, a large depository for books, 
a printing office with seventeen steam power presses, 
and an extensive bindery. If necessary, 1000 Bibles per 
day can easily be made. The Society keeps no perma- 
nent funds, but expends all contributed in circulating the 
Scriptures at home or abroad.

AMERICAN BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS FOR FOREIGN RnSSIGNS. 

(Instituted, 1810. Agency in the Brick Church Chapel.) 

The object of the Board is to propagate the Gospel 

among unevangelized nations and communities, by 

means of preachers, catechists, schoolmasters, and the 

press. 

The Board has under its care thirty-two missions and 
seventy-eight stations ; connected Avith which are one 
hundred and four ordained missionaries, (seven of whom 
are regularly educated physicians, and six others have 
prosecuted medical studies to such an extent as to render 
them highly useful in that capacity,) nine physicians not 
ordained, eight printers, thirty teachers, catechists, far- 
mers and mechanics, and one hundred and fifty-seven 
married and unmarried female assistants; making a to- 
tal of three hundred and eight missionaries and assistant 
missionaries sent forth from this country. Four native 
preachers and fifty-one other native assistants, employed 
principally as teachers, are also laboring at the several 
missions. The number of converts received to the forty- 
one churches under the care of the missionaries of the 
Board among the heathen, since their organization, is 
about two thousand and four hundred, and the present 
number is about two thousand and forty-seven. At the 
schools established among the heathen, through the 
agency of persons sent forth by the Board, and taught by 
them, or by persons to a greater or less extent under 
their superintendence and direction, not less than eighty 
thousand pupils have been instructed since their com- 
mencement, and about twenry'-one thousand are now in 
a course of instruction. Connected with the missions 
are eight printing establishments, including fifteen 
presses, at which and at other presses employed by the 
Board, not less than ninety millions of pages have been 
printed, in sixteen different languages, exclusive of the 
English. The languages are the following: — Italian, 
Greek, Armeno- Turkish, Arabic, Mahratta, Tamul,

sailors' snug HARBOR. 

(Now located on Staten Island, near New Brighton.) 
Founded in 1801, by Capt. Robert R. Randall, who de- 
vised his real estate and Mansion House, at the Sand 
Hill, Broadway, (now Eighth and Ninth streets,) to sup- 
port an Asylum for aged and infirm seamen. 

The Trustees named by him are the Mayor and Re- 
corder of New- York, the Presidents of the Chamber of 
Commerce, and of the Marine Society, the senior miriis- 



88 RELIGIGUa, BENEVOLENT, AND 



ter of the Episcopal Church, and of the Presbyterian 
Church in Wall-street. The Trustees applied for an act 
of incorporation, which was granted in lb06 ; but the in- 
tentions of ihe donor were not carried into effect till a few 
years since, when inquiries were instituted by the Legis- 
lature. In 1830 and 1831, the whole of the Sailor's Snug 
Harbour estate, from Broadway to the Fifth Avenue, and 
Washington Square, was leased out in house lots for 
twenty-one years. With the income of these rents, the 
Trustees have purchased a farm of nearly one hundred 
and fifty acres of fine land, on the north side of Staten 
Island, half a mile west of New-Brighton ; they have 
erected a large and convenient building, 65 feet by 100, 
where fifty or sixty disabled seamen find a snug harbor 
for life, with every want supplied, and laboring only 
enough for their health and comfort. The building com- 
mands a fine view of the Bay of New- York, the Hudson 
River, and Newark Bay, and the Philadelphia steamboats 
pass it daily. The wliole of the Sailor's Snug Harbor 
property is now supposed to be worth a million of dollars. 
The Trustees of this Institution report to the Legisla- 
ture that their receipts during the year 1836 amounted to 
S52,702 58, and their expenditures to S50,766 19. Their 
income from rents for 1837 they estimate at $33,265.

Annual Meeting — Monday previous to the second 
Thursday in May. 

NEW-YORK INSTITUTION FOR THE INSTRUCTION OF THE DEAF 

AND DUMB. 
(Incorporated, April, 1817.) 

This institution commenced operations under its char- 
ter, by opening a school for the reception of pupils on the 
l-2th day of May,1818. Until the spring of 1829, the school 
was held in the building now called the New City Hall. 
At that time the pupils were transferred to a large building 
erected for the purposes of the institution, on Fiftieth- 
street and the Fourth Avenue, three and a half miles from 
the City Hall. Communication between the Institution 
and the city is rendered very easy, by the cars which pass 
on the Harlaem Rail Road, (Fourth Avenue,) every fifteen 
or twenty minutes in both directions. 

The principal building occupied for the purposes of the 
Institution, is one hundred and ten feet by sixty, in the 
dimensions of its plan, and five stories in height, includ- 
ing the basement. It accommodates, with some inconve- 
nience, the number of pupils (about one hundred and 
sixty) which the Institution embraces at present : with the 
teachers, the family of the Principal, and such other per- 
sons as are needed to assist in conducting the affairs of 
the establishment. 

The original charter of the Institution being about to 
expire by limitation on the first day of April, 1837, it was 
extended by the Legislature, in the spring of 1836, for a 
period of twenty-five )'"ears. 

The number of pupils who were members of the Insti- 
tution in 1836, was one hundred and ninety-seven; the ac- 
tual number present on the first day of Januarj', 1837, was 
one hundred and sixty. One hundred and tAventy of these 
are supported at the expense of the State of New- York, 
seven at the expense of the State of New- Jersey ; four by 
the city authorities, one by the Supervisors of the county 
of Dutchess, five by the funds of the Institution, and the 
rest by their parents or friends.

The total number of admissions into the Institution to 
January 1, 1837, was 488. In May, 1836, the Central Asy- 
lum for the Deaf and Dumb at Canajoharie was closed 
and the pupils transferred to the New- York Institute! 
The total number of admissions at Canajoharie, was 149,' 
Total of both Institutions 637. Of these, 117 have been 
members of both schools, or more than once admitted to 
the same. Whence the number of deaf-mutes who have 
been under instruction in the State, to January 1, 1837, 
was 520. Of these, 283 were males, and 238 females' 



MORAL INSTITUTIONS, 91 

193 were born deaf; 201 became deaf by disease, or acci- 
dent early in life ; of 117 the causes of iheir deafness are 
unknown; and 9 were both deaf from birth, and incapable 
of intellectual improvement. 

There are at present one hundred and forty schools for 
the deaf and dumb in the world. There are five in Ame- 
rica, viz. one in Hartford, Conn. ; one in Philadelphia, 
Penn. ; one in Columbus, Ohio; one in Danville, Ky. -^ 
and the New- York Institution, New- York city. Of these 
the New- York Institution is considerably the largest. 
There are two larger institutions only of the kind in Eu- 
rope, viz. the Institution of London, containing 230 pupils, 
and the Royal Institution of Paris, containing 175. The 
National Institution at Groningen, Holland, contains the 
same number as that in New- York, viz. 160. 

According to the census of 1835, the number of per- 
sons deaf and dumb in the State of New-York, was 1070, or 
one to every 2029 individuals. There is great reason, 
from various facts in possession of the Institution, to sus- 
pect the accuracy of the returns. A more just estimate 
of the deaf mute population of the State would be, at the 
smallest computation, 1200, probably 1300. The least 
number named would give one deaf mute to 1800 persons. 
The proportion in Europe is about one to 1550 ; tnrough- 
out the world one to 1500. 

ORPHAN ASYLUM. 
(Situated at Bloomingdale. Founded in 1807.) 
Thirty years have elapsed since this charitable institu-

time there have been admitted 931 children; of whom 
411 boys have been apprenticed to mechanics and farm- 
ers, 273 girls to trajdes, and as servants in private families, 
and 81 have died.' Thirty is about the average number 
yearly bound out, and about the same number is yearly 
received. Present number of children in the Asylum is 173,

NEW-YORK FIRE DEPARTMENT FUND. 

The object of this Institution is to relieve the tvidows 
and orphans of deceased firemen, and to assist sick or dis- 
abled members and their families. Upwards of seven 
thousand dollars were expended in deeds of charity un- 
der the direction of the Trustees, during the past year, 
and the claims on the fund are daily increasing. 

The officers of the department are elected annually by 
the representatives of the fire engine, hook and ladder and 
hose companies, and fire wardens. The Board of Trus- 
tees of the Fire Department Fund consists of nine mem- 
bers, three being elected annually by the representatives.

(Founded in 1831.) 

Auxiliary to the American Colonization Society, in con- 
veying to Africa, with their own consent, the free colour- 
ed persons of the United States. 

There are now established along the western coast of 
Africa, by American philanthropists, four distinct Colo- 
nies, supposed to t^ontain nearly ten thousand inhabitants. 
In these are included the villages of Monrovia, Caldwell^. 
Millsburgh, Marshall, and New-Georgia, which are im- 
mediately under the supervision of the Parent Society at 
Washington. The next settlement in order along the 
«oast is Edina, situated near to the River St. John's, and 
probably about sixty miles south of Monrovia. This co-

lony was founded by the Parent Society several years 
since, and has been subject to their jurisdiction until De- 
cember last, when it was ceded, with the consent of the 
inhabitants, to the associated Colonization Society of New 
York and Pennsylvania. The colony at Bassa Cove is 
situated within a few miles south of Edina, and was 
planted in October, 1824, under the united patronage of 
the Societies of Pennsylvania and New- York, and is re- 
inforced by expeditions sent alternately each year by these 
institutions. The location at Bassa Cove, whether we 
regard fertility of soil, or salubrity of climate, or the com- 
modiousness of its harbour, is not perhaps inferior to any 
other on the coast of Africa ; and it is expected that the 
contemplated college or high school will be erected in that 
vicinity. CapePalmos lies on the margin of the ocean, in 
a southern direction, about two hundred and twenty miles 
from Monrovia. The colony at this Cape was founded 
by the Colonization Society of the State of Maryland, and 
they mention in their last annual report that " three years 
since this spot was a wilderness, with untutored savages 
for its inhabitants, and that it is now the boast of the 
western coast." The Colonization Society of Missouri 
have recently purchased an intermediate territory be- 
tween Bassa Cove and Cape Palmas, at the River Sinon, 
and expect to send out their first expedition early in 
April ; the Society of the State of Louisiana is making 
similar arrangements, and each Association has resolved 
to appropriate twenty thousand dollars a year, for five 
years, in sustaining their respective settlements ; and the 
Colonization Society of Virginia, at their anniversary in 
January last, adopted a resolution to establish, " as soon 
as suitable funds can be obtained," a colony of their own, 
to be called New- Virginia. 

In these various establishments there are now about 
twenty missionaries, either coloured or white, Methodists, 
Baptists, Episcopalians, and Presbyterians. There are 
also schools established in every settlement for the educa- 
tion of the children, both of the colonies and natives, and 
various printing presses. The inhabitants at the different 
stations are now turning their attention to the cultivation 
of the soil, and are represented in general as temperate, 
industrious, orderly, and rapidly advancing in improve- 
Tnent, intellectual and moral. At the various settlements

a large proportion of the colonists are professors of reli-

According to its constitution, '' the object of this Socie- 
ty is the entire abolition of slavery in the United States. 
While it admits that each state, in which slavery exists, 
has, by the Constitution of the United States, the exclu- 
sive right to legislate in regard to its abolition in said state, 
it shall aim to convince all our fellow-citizens, by argu- 
ments addressed to their understandings and consciences, 
that slave-holding is a heinous crime in the sight of God, 
and that the duty, safety, and best interests of all con- 
cerned, require its irnmediate abandonment^ without expa- 
triation. The Society will also endeavor, in a constitu- 
tional way, to influence Congress to put an end to the 
domestic slave-trade, and to abolish slavery in all those 
portions of our common country, which come under its 
control, especially in the District of Columbia, and like- 
wise to prevent the extension of it to any state that may be 
hereafter admitted to the Union." 

It has nine state, and about one thousand minor Quxili-

inhabitants themselves. The charges vary according to 
the style of the accommodation. The principal hotels 
and boarding houses possess every convenience that 
can be desired ; and an inmate may either reside in 
privacy or associate with the company, as inclination 
dictates. 

At the eating houses, meals can be procured at mo- 
derate charges, varying according to the articles ordered. 

Lodgings may be obtained by the day, week, or month, 
in many respectable houses, at a moderate price.

Edmund Simpson, Manager. 



'^-^4 AMUSEMENTS. 



THE AMERICAN THEATRE. 
(Bowery, between Bayard and Walker streeta.) 

Was erected in 1826, and opened October 16, 1826, 
within six months from the time the building was com- 
menced. It was burnt in May, 1828, and immediately 
afterwards rebuilt, and re-opened in August, 1828. 
Again burnt down Sept. 22, 1836 •, rebuilt and finished, 
January, 1837. The new building is one of the finest 
specimens of Doric architecture in the City ; the front 
being constructed after the model of the Temple of Mi- 
nerva at Athens. The interior is elegant, and fitted up 
in a superior style. The building is 75 feet front on the 
Bowery, and the depth to Elizabeth-street is 175 feet ; 
height of the building to the cornice, 58 feet. The Pit 
extends under the Boxes, and is capable of containing 
300 persons more than that of Drury Lane, London ; the 
dome and proscenium are all practicable, and can be 
lowered in half an hour ; the side proscenium, including 
the balcony boxe?, are so constructed that, by a piece of 
ingenious machinery, they can in an instant be moved 
back so as to throw open the entire stage for pro- 
cessions, &c. 

Prices of admission — Boxes, 75 cents ; Pit, 37J cents ; 
Gallery, 25 cents. 

W. Dinneford, Manager, 

FRANKLIN THEATRE, 

(175 Chatham-Street.)

MUSEUMS. 

AMERICAN MUSEUM, 
(Opposite St. Paul's Church, Broadway.) 

This excellent institution was founded in 1810, by the 
late John Scudder, by whose arduous efforts, and the 

Eersevering exertions of its more recent proprietors, it 
as arose to its present high standing. It continues 
daily to improve in every department, by extensive and 
valuable additions of the works of Nature and artificial 
curiosities, from all parts of the world. Its immense col- 
lections are well arranged and beautifully displayed in 
four spacious Saloons, each one hundred feet in length ; 
in addition to Avhich another apartment has recently 
been added of still larger dimensions. The Grand Cos- 
morama of this establishment is truly a most splendid 
affair, which for extent of glasses and magnificence of 
views, is not surpassed in this or any other country. 
The views embrace a great variety of subjects, and were 
all executed expressly by Italian artists of eminence in 
their profession. No labour or expense has been spared 
to render this establishment well deserving a continuance 
of that liberal and distinguished patronage it has always 
received. The building is very high, and from its ob- 



226 



BATHS. 



servatory may be enjoyed some of the finest views in the 
City, and of the beautiful bay and surrounding country. 
The halls are well warmed and ventilated, and at even- 
ing brilliantly lighted with gas, altogether forming a 
very inviting agreeable lounge, and at the same time, a 
place for serious contemplation and amusement, to those 
who delight in the study of the wonderful works of 
Nature. 

Admittance, 25 cents — children, half price. 

peai.e's museum and gallery of fine arts. 
(Broadway, opposite the Paik.) 

This establishment was founded in the year 1825, and 
has increased with astonishing rapidity, it contains four 
spacious apartments, which are arranged in the follow- 
ing order: The 1st contains specimens of Natural His- 
tory in all its branches, and for beauty of arrangement, 
and the exquisite style in which the articles are mounted, 
renders it one of the most interesting places of public 
amusement in the country. The 2d is a large and va- 
luable collection of Paintings, by eminent artists, amongst 
which may be particularly mentioned a Portrait of Na- 
poleon, by Le Fevre ; a Magdalen, by Le Bron, together 
with Portraits of at least 150 celebrated citzens and fo- 
reigners. The 3d contains a very superior Cosmorama, 
several Wax Figures of good workmanship, Fossils, 
Shells, Minerals, and Miscellaneous Curiosities. It 
would be impossible to enumerate the principal articles of 
interest in the establishment, but it would be unjust to 
the enterprising proprietor, not to name the Egyptian 
Mummy, the tatooed head of a New Zealand Chief, and 
the living Anaconda, all of which have been procured 
at a very great expense. The 4th is a Lecture Room, in 
which, during each evening throughout the year, a suc- 
cession of interesting amusements take place. 



BATKS. 

The principal Baths, for the accommodation of 
strangers and citizens, are the following : 
Arcade Bath, 39 Chambers-street. 
Washington Bath, 533 Pearl-street. 
Besides many others of less note. 



FASHIONABIJ5 RESORTS. 227 



The sea water Baths are conveniently arranged, and 
are much frequented during warm weather. The prin- 
cipal Baths are at the Battery, and near Murray-street, 
on the North River. 



FASHIONABIiE RESORTS. 

In the City, and its vicinity, are numerous places of 
resort, where the citizen and stranger may retire from 
the bustle of the City, and the fatigues of business. 

THE BATTERY, 

This beautiful promenade is situated at the south-west 
end of the island, and junction of the North and East 
Rivers, and possesses attractions unsurpassed, perhaps, 
by any other similar place of resort in the world, justly 
commanding the admiration of every visiter, It is in full 
view of the bay and surrounding scenery of Long Island, 
Staten Island, New Jersey, and the islands in the har- 
bour. From no one point can a better idea be formed of 
the magnitude of the commerce of the City. The nu- 
merous ships, steamboats, and small vessels, that are 
constantly entering and departing from the port, farming 
a scene of stirring interest. Of the bay itself, we deem it 
appropriate in this place to quote the language of a late 
English tourist. 

" I have never seen the bay of Naples, I can therefore 
make no comparison ; but my imagination is incapable 
of conceiving any thing more beautiful than the harbour 
of New-York. Various and lovely are the objects which 
meet the eye on every side ; but the naming them would 
only be to give a list of words, without conveying the 
ftiintest idea of the scene, I doubt if even the pencil of 
Turner could do it justice, bright and glorious as it rose 
upon us. We seemed to enter the harbour of New- 
York upon waves of liquid gold; and as we dashed past 
the green isles which rise from its bosom like guardian 
sentinels' of the fair City, the setting sun stretched his 
horizontal beams further and further, at each moment, as 
if to point out to us some new glory in the landscape." 

The Battery extends somewhat in the form of a cres- 



228 KASHIUXABLE RESORTS. 

cent, from the termination of Broadway, Greenwich, 
and Washington streets, on the north-west, to Whitehall- 
street, on the east, covering an area of nearly 11 acres, 
and laid out in grass-plots and gravel walks, shaded with 
trees. The exterior, fronting the harbour, is built up 
with hewn stone ; and on this side is a paved walk, with 
stone posts connected with a neat open railing. An ex- 
pensive iron railing, with gateways, extends along the 
interior front. 

This favourite promenade was originally a fortifica- 
tion, thrown up by the Dutch, and planted w^ith cannon, 
from which circumstance it derives its name. Its bounds 
have been much enlarged by filling in, and for many 
years it has been used as a public walk, and constantly 
fanned as it is by the breezes of the ocean, no more 
agreeable and healthful retreat, from the heat of the City, 
can be found during the summer months. 

CASTLE GARDEN. 

On a mole, connected with the Battery by a bridge, is 
situated Castle Garden, originally erected for a fortifica- 
tion, and used for that purpose until 1823, when it was 
ceded by the United States to the Corporation of this 
City, since which it has been leased for a place of public 
amusement or recreation. On the top of the walls, a 
walk, covered by an awming, has been constructed, from 
whence a fine view of the harbour and adjacent scenery 
is obtained. Within the walls over ten thousand people 
may be accommodated, and concerts and fire works are 
occasionally giv^en. 

VAUXHALL GARDEN 

Is situated near the junction of the Bowery and Broad- 
way, fronting on the former, and was formerly a place of 
great resort in summer. On the evenings of public 
days, fire works and other entertainments were exhibit- 
ed ; ]3Ut by the late improvements in that part of the city, 
particularly by the extension of Lafayette-Place through 
the Garden, its dimensions have been much lessened, 
and its attractions weakened. 



PAVOURITE KXCrRSIOXS. 229 



NIBLO S GARDEN, 
(Corner of Broadway and Prince-street.) 
Is one of the most fashionable places of resort in the 
city, during the summer months. It has been laid out 
with great taste, and when open to the public, is hand- 
somely lighted, and decorated with paintings, mirrors, 
&c. The walks are bordered with shrubbery and flow- 
ers in great variety. Fire works are occasionally exhi- 
bited ; and in the saloon, which is a very tasteful and airy 
building, theatrical and musical entertainments are given. 

OTHER PUBLIC GARDENS. 

New-York Garden, Broadway, between Leonard and 
Franklin streets. 

Cold Spring Garden, between Greenwich and Wash- 
ington streets, corner of Le Roy-street. 

East River Garden, near Corlaer's Hook, 



FAVOURITE EXCURSIONS 

ON THE ISLAND OF NEW-YORK AND ITS VICINITY. 

Harljem and Yorkville ; the conveyance to the above 
places on the island of New-York, are both frequent and 
reasonable, either by the Macadamized road on the Third 
Avenue, or on the Rail-road. The Harlaem Rail-road, 
commences in the Bowery, near Prince-street, and runs 
along the Fourth Avenue to Harlsem, a distance of 7* 
miles. Cars run on it constantly, stopping whenever 
any of the passengers wish to get out; usual fare, 12] 
cents. 

Bloomingdale and Manhattan ville, on the Island, are 
also places of great attraction; the roads are good, and 
besides private conveyances, stages leave the Bowery, 
corner of Bayard -street, several times a day for both of 
the above places. 

Islands, contiguous to New-York, and under the juris- 
diction of the City authorities are Governor's, Bedlow's, 
and Ellis's Islands, in the Hudson River, included in the 
First Ward of the City, all of which belong to the United 
States' government, and are occupied for military pur- 
poses. Blackwell's, Great Barn, and Randell's Island, in 
the East River, forming part of the Twelfth Ward. 



230 FAVOURITE EXCURSIONS. 



Blackwell's Island belongs to the city, on which is situ- 
ated the Penitentiary. 

HoBOKEN, New- Jersey, opposite New- York, Avhere the 
North River is about a mile and a half wide, is a fa- 
vourite resort for the citizens during the summer. 
Steam ferry-boats run from Bajclay-street and Canal- 
street, New- York, to this place, "once in every twenty 
minutes or half hour, during the day; and the fare, in 
summer, is but 6| cents. Near the ferry is a public 
house, in front of which is a fine lawn, where seats are 
provided for visiters to enjoy the cool breezes which 
prevail during the warmest weather, and the fine pros- 
pect which the place commands of the city and harbour 
— north of the house there is a circular railway, on 
which are carriages propelled by the passengers for ex- 
ercise and amusement. The grounds along the river, 
for more than a mile, are the property of the Messrs. 
Stevens, who permit a free public access to them. 
From the lawn a shaded gravel walk extends on the 
elevated and rocky bank of the river for about a mile, at 
the termination of which is a grove, called the £:/i/sm7i 
Fields, where a handsome Pavilion has been erected, 
and from whence is a fine view of the North River and 
the opposite city. An excavation has recently been made 
in the solid rock under the bluff about one mile north of 
Hoboken, near the river, Avhich attracts considerable 
attention, it is appropriately named the Sybil's Cave. 

Bull's Ferry, 6s miles, and Fort Lee," 10 miles north 
of the City, on the Jersey shore, are both much frequent- 
ed during the summer months ; Steamboats leave for the 
above places almost hourly, from the foot of Canal-street, 
affording a cheap and pleasant excursion. 

City of Brooklyn. From Brooklyn Heights, which 
overlooks the East River, and part of the City of New- 
York, is one of the most stirring views imaginable — the 
junction of the North and East Rivers, the fortified 
Islands in the vicinity, and the shipping in the harbour, 
are all in full view. 

The United States Navy Yard is on the east side of 
Brooklyn, on the Wallabout Bay; where visitors can 
easily obtain admission. Brooklyn, although not pos- 
sessing many attractions to the stranger, is fast increas- 
ing in wealth and numbers j the increase in real estate 



FAVOURITE KXCURSIONS. 231 



within the last lew years is unparalleled. The whole of 
the unsettled part of the city is about being surveyed and 
laid out into streets and avenues similar to the Island of 
New- York. The Long-Island Rail-road commences at 
Brooklyn, and, when finished, will extend to Greenport, 
a distance of about 100 miles. 

The village of Williamsburgh, in the town of Bush- 
wick, Long Island, is situated on the East River, (950 
yards wide,) opposite ("orlaer's Hook, and has intercourse 
with the city of New-York by ferries from the foot of 
Grand-street and Peck-slip. It is fast becoming a place of 
importance, being contiguous to New-York and Brooklyn. 
At present there are not many attractions for strangers or 
citizens as a place of resort, but it is susceptable of great 
improvements. Stages start twice a day for Newtown and 
Flushing, and the turnpike to Jamaica, leaves the village 
from ISorth Second-street. 

Flatbush, five miles from New-York, is a delightful 
place of residence ; it is the seat of Erasmus Hall Acade- 
my, and was the scene of a sanguinary battle between 
the British and Americans in 1776. The spirit of im- 
provement has, in the rapid progress it is now making, 
reached this delightful spot — a softer landscape than it 
presents is rarely met with. Its surface is an inclined 
plane, fifty feet above the level of the ocean, to which it 
has a regular and gradual descent. The air about it is 
tempered by the sea breeze, and its salubrity is almost 
proverbial. 

Fort Hamilton, situated at the Narrows, is also a de- 
lightful place of residence ; being in sight of the ocean, it 
commands a view of all the shipping leaving and enter- 
ing the harbour of New-York. 

Bath, in the town of New-Utrecht, Long Island, nine 
miles south of BrookljTi, is a favourite place of resort 
for sea bathing. Here is a well kept public house, with 
a lawn fronting the bay, well shaded with trees, where 
the breezes of the ocean may be enjoyed during the heat 
of summer. This is the nearest watering place to New 
York; new accommodations have recently been erected 
which are within a short distance of the beach, and com- 
mand a most beautiful prospect of the ocean. 

At Coney Island, M^iich is three miles from Bath, and 
is joined to Long Island by abridge across a narrow inlet,

is a fine beach for bathing, with a public house, and otlier 
conveniences. A rail-road is attached to the establish- 
ment, with cars leaving the hotel for the beach, a dis- 
tance of eighty rods, every few minutes, during the sum- 
mer season. The bathing at this place is not surpassed 
by any in the United States. The beach is white and 
hard. 

Jamaica, on Long Island, is a beautiful and flourishing 
town ; having a village of the same name, eleven miles 
from Brooklyn, which is a place of importance, being 
the county town for Queen's County, and connected with 
Brooklyn by a rail-road, now in successful operation. 
The Long Island Rail Road, when completed, will make 
a continual road to Greenport, L. I., a distance of about 
one hundred miles. The Union Race Course is situated 
at the west end of Jamaica, about seven miles from Brook- 
lyn, between the turnpike and Rail-road, and is a place of 
great attraction during the spring and fall races. Eight 
miles from Jamaica is 

RocKAWAY, on the Atlantic Ocean, 20 miles from New- 
York. This is a favourite resort for sea bathing ; the 
fine beach affording great advantages for that purpose. 
A splendid hotel (the Marine Pavilion) has been recently 
erected at this place; it is 230 feet in front, 3 stories in 
height, with two wings, and two magnificent piazzas; the 
front one extending the whole length of the mansion, 20 
feet in width, ornamented with 28 Grecian columns. The 
rear piazza extends from one wing to the other, a distance 
of 150 leet. From the front is an unrivalled view of the 
Atlantic Ocean, and the numerous shipping passing 
Sandy Hook, to and from the Harbour of New- York. 

Station Island has long been a favourite place of re- 
sort. Steamboats leave several times during the day, 
from Whitehall-dock, and from piers No. 1 and 4, north 
side of the Battery, for the Gluarantine Ground, Tomp- 
kinsville. New Brighton, and other places on the island.
