EivcouKAGED by the public favour bestowed on our
first attempt to furnish a convenient manual for citizens
and strangers, we offer the second annual volume of
" Nvw-YoRK AS IT IS," with improvements and addi-
i, which, we trust, will make it equally acceptable
the one for 1833. Great care and labour have been
(red to record the numerous changes and alterations
n are constantly taking place hi the varied concerns
; 's great metropolis; and the general correctness of
' .anual may, it is believed, be relied on. Further
ements and additions may be expected in future
irs, should the patronage of the public be con-
* h expense is necessarily incurred in the prepa^
of this little volume ; and to remunerate the
,,^,^.xL=ner, a sale of the whole edition, (which is
quite moderate,) is requisite. We, however, have so
much confidence, that citizens as well as strangers will
duly appreciate the convenience of this Panoramic and
Statistical View of the City, that we anticipate an in-
creased support to this volume.
With these preliminary remarks, and with our thanks
to friends and correspondents for their favours, we sub-
niit to the public, " New-York as it is. in 1834.'"

CITY ANI> MAJRBOUB OF NEW-YOKJK.
SITUATION AND EXTENT.
The City of New-York, the commercial emporium of
the United 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 with the At-
lantic Ocean. It is ahout 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", 42', 40", north,
and longitude 74^, V, 8", west, from Greenwich. The
City and County are of the same limits, comprising the
whole island, which extends from the Battery on the
south, to Kingsbridge on the north, 13^ miles, or 71,700
feet. The average breadth is 1 mile and 3220 feet, or
8500 feet. The greatest breadth is on the liije of 88th-
street, and is 12,200 feet, or about 2^ miles. The area
of the island is about 14,000 acres.
On the north and east it is separated from West-
chester County by Harlanii River, over which are three
bridges, namely Harlaem, Macomb's, and King's bridges.
The tide flows through this river or strait ; the western
termination of which, where it connects with the Hudson,
is called Spuyien 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 ; witii the state of
14 DESCRIPTION OF THE CITY AND HARBOUR.
New-Jersey on tlie 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, Blackwell's Island, in the East River,
occupied by the City Penitentiary establishment.
The harbour of New-York is safe and commodious, its
circumference being about 25 miles, and the largest
vessels may come up to the wharves at the City. On
the bar, at Sandy Hook, the dei)th of water, at high tide,
is 27 feet, and at low water 21 feet : from thence to the
City the channel is froui 35 to 50 feet. The Light
House at Sandy Hook on the New-Jersey shore, is dis-
tant 18 miles from the City ; and vessels frequently anchor
in the outer harbour, or llaritan 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 li-land Sound, 20 miles N. E. of the City. The
harbour is but seldom obstructed with ice. The differ-
ence 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 busi-
ness is transacted on the east side of the City ; the East
River being: the most convenient and safe part of the
harbour. The width of the East River is from one third
to onehalf 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 Hobo-
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, (tbrmerly called Fort
Diamond,) is built on a reef of rocks, two hundred yards
DESCRIPTION or THK CITY AND HARBOUR. 15
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. 'J'lie United
States e:overnment have expended large sums of money
on these ditiferent fortifications, particularly since the last
war with Great Britain, and they are now considered
amply sufficient for the defence of this passage to the
harbour. The fortifications on the East River are not, at
present, of much importance.
There are batteries on Bedlow's and Ellis' islands,
on the western side of the harbour; and on Governor's
Island, (which is distant 3200 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. Theieisalso
a battery on the south-west side, commanding the en-
trance through Buttermilk Channel. There are barracks
on the island for the accommodation of a considerable
number of soldiers.
A Telegraph is established on the heights of Staten
Island, communicating by signals with one in the City,
on the Merchants' Exchange.
GEOLOGY, ELEYATION, CLIMATE, &C.*
The island of New-York is fonned on a bed of rocks,
generally primitive granite, with some lime-stone in the
northern section, where are quarries of white marble.
The elevation is very considerable above tide water
^ For a considerable portion of the informalion on these subjects, and on
ibe supply of the City with water, we are iudebfed to the interesting Report
-orCol. De Wilt Clinton, to the Common Council, Dec, 1832.
16 DESCRIPTION OF THE CITY.
throughont the whole extent. The outline of the island
is not more irregular than its surface. The ground
within two miles of Kingshridge, at Fort Washington, on
the Hudson River, is su])posed to be the most elevated,
and was ascertained by Capt. Partridge, to be 238 feet
above tide water. Fort Washington and Fort Tryonare
the remains of a fortilication used during the Revolu-
tionary war. Fort Tryon is a short distance north of
Fort Washington, and is 229 feet above tide. Other
elevations in this part of the island, have not been ascer-
tained. The greatest elevation of the f^ourth Avenue,
(which is the line of the Harlaem Rail Road,) is 117 feet
above tide. At the intersection of 23d-street, it is only
14^ feet. The highest ground on the Sixth Avenue is
111^ feet. The road, ^at Manhattanville, is 26 feet.
The elevations of Broadway above tide, from the Battery
to Canal-street, are as follows, (according to the surveys
by the Street Commissioner,) namely at Battery-place,
14 feet; at Wall-street, 34 feet; at Cortlandt-street, 31
feet 6 inches; at Barclay-street, 35 feet 3 inches; City
Hall, 38 feet ; at Chambers-street, 34 feet 7 inches ; at
Duanc-street, 29 feet 6 inches; at Anthony-slreet, 35 feet
4 inches; at Franklin-street, 28 feet 3 inches; at Canal-
street, 10 feet 6 inches.
The general slope of the island is from the west to the
east ; and at points, it i? much broken by insulated and
connected ridges and hills, with an elevated range of high
ground running from west to east, which slopes towards
the northern and southern parts of the island. This fact
is considered invaluable, as it will enable reservoirs of
water to be so located as to command, at an elevated
head, the whole City.
The general character of the soil of this island is open,
through which the rains that fall freely percolate ; a
small portion of its area consists of salt marsh and ex-
posed rock. It is, however, commonly sand and gravel,
intermixed with pebbles and loose rock, resting on a
stratified mass of gneiss, which exists at various depths,
and at places appears on the surface. The depth of the
toil has no reirular uniformitv, as ascertained bvborin;:.
DESCRIPTION OF THE CITY.
At the well, on Thirteenth-street, it is 15 feet ; at Bleecker-
street, it is 48 feet; at the Dry Dock, 100 feet; at Green-
wich, 70 feet; at Washington ftlarket, 72 feet. The soil
is greatly diversified in quality; but the best land is
towards the north part of the island. The general aspect
of the ground is forbidding for cultivation ; but, owing to
the exertions and good taste of some of our citizens, there
are many fields and gardens which afford good specimens
of agriculture; and the horticulture is conducted in a
style not surpassed in the United States. In 1825 the
quantity of cultivated land on the island was 5785 acres.
A considerable proportion of the ground which is laid
out in gardens, is noted for its fertility, producing every
variety of vegetables and fruits common to this climate.
The situation of the city is considered very favourable
to the health of the inhabitants, from tlie elevated charac-
ter of the island, and the vicinity of the ocean. The
climate, at most seasons, is mild and agrf eable. The
winters are less severe than in the interior of the State,
and the sea breezes render the heat of summer less op-
pressive. An examination of the Bills of Mortality (see
Index) will show the annual average of deaths in this
City to be less in proportion to the population, than that
of most other large Cities in the United States, lakino-
into consideration that this port is the principal recepta^
cle of emigrants from Europe, the deaths among whom,
unused to our climate, tend to swell the Bills of Mortality.
DIVISIONS AND GOVERNMENT.
The City is divided into 15 wards, which are particu-
larly defined in another part of this volume. Each
ward elects annually an Alderman and an Assistant
Alderman, wlio are formed into a Comi:non Council of
two boards. The mayor is elected annually, (agreeably
to an amendment of the constitution,) by the people.
A panorama of this extensive City, presents the com-
pact part occupying the south end of the island we have
described, and stretching along each river about three
18 DESCRIPTION OF THE CITY.
railes. The number of lots built upon in all the wards,
except the twelfth, (which comprises all the island north
of three miles,) in 1831, was 20,093, having a population
of about 10 persons to each lot ; and the number of vacant
lots, in the same wards, was 6352. The present number
of buildings is about 30,000.
The City is generally regularly built ; the principal
streets running north and south, and being crossed by
others, extendmg from the East to the North Rivers.
Great improvements have been made within a few years,
in the compact part of the City, by widening, opening,
and straightening streets, to remedy, in some degree, the
irregular and inconvenient manner in which the ancient
part of the City was built. The dwellings and ware-
houses of our Dutch ancestors have nearly all given place
to the more tasteful and convenient buildings of modern
times. Most of these buildings are of brick; and many
of the warehouses of the merchants are not surpassed
for beauty, spaciousness, and convenience, by those of
any other City. The style of building, with granite and
marble fronts to the basement, has been recently intro-
duced, and is now almost uniformly adopted in the erec-
tion of warehouses. The northern part of the City has
been very handsomely laid out, with wide streets and
avenues; and the style of building, for dweling houses,
is neat, and frequently elegant. »Some of the rows of
houses in La F.iyette-place, Bond-street, Bleecker-street,
6lc., may vie, for beauty and taste, with those of the
finest Cities of Europe.
An alphabetical list of the streets of the City is given,
at page 193. Broadway is the principal thoroughfare,
and most fashionable promenade. It is 80 feet wide, and
extends about three railes from north to south, termina-
ting at the Battery. From this street there is a gentle
slope, east ana west, to the rivers. Greenwich-street is
wioe and elegant, and runs parallel with Broadway, be-
tween that street and Washington-street, which last is a
fine avenue, next to West-st., extending along the North

the form of a crescent, containing numerous spacious
wareliouses, and is the principal seat of the dry goods,
and hardware business. Front and Water streets, be-
tween Pearl-street and the East River, are occupied
principally by the wholesale grocers, commission mer-
chants, and mechanics connected with the shipping busi-
ness. South-street, running along the East River, con-
tains the warehouses and otifices of most of the principal
shipping merchants. Wall-street runs from Broadway
to the East River, and is occupied by the Banks, In-
surance Companies, Merchants' Exchange, Newspapers,
and Brokers offices, being the seat of heavier moneyed
transactions than any other place in America. Canal-
street, running across Broadway to the Hudson River,
near the centre of the City, is a spacious street, princi-
pally occupied by retail stores. The Bowery is a wide
and extensive street, running directly north and south,
east of Broadway. The Third Avenue, extending from
the Bowery to Harlaem, is Macadamized, and is the
principal avenue to the City from the east. Chatham-
street, East Broadway, Nassau-street, Maiden-lane,
Broad, Fulton, Cortlandl, William, Hudson, Division,
Grand, and Broome streets, deserve particular notice,
as amone: the principal streets and avenues. The streets
are generally well paved, with stone or brick side walks,
lighted at night with lamps, and some of them supplied
with gas lights.

THE CITY HALL,
Situated in the Park, about half a mile from the
Battery, and equi-distant from the East and North
Rivers. It is 216 feet in length, by 105 in breadth ; the
front and ends built of wlflte marble, and the rear of free
stone, and is considered one of the most beautiful edifices
in the United States. It consists of a centre building
and two wings, principally of the Ionic and Corinthian
orders. This edifice was commenced in 1803 and finish-
ed in 1812, at the cost of $538,734, and is occupied as

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 huildings as
appendages. The location is remarkably salubrious and
pleasant. There are several farms on Long Island, at-
tached to the Alms House establishment.
(For other Public Buildings, see Index.)
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 principal streets, about
26 miles of iron pipes. The public buildings and stores
which are supplied with gas by this Company, pay for
the same at the rate of 70 cents per 100 cubic feet con-
sumed. The expense of gas for a store, with four lights,
is about $60 per year. (For capital, &c., see page ISK)
THE MANHATTAN GAS LIGHT COMPANY WORKS
Are located on the North River at the footof Eighteenth-
st. This Company have laid their main pipes through
Eighteenth-street, Ninth-avenue, Hudson, Bleecker-st.
Sixth-avenue, Waverly-place, Broadway, Bowery,
Broome, Centre, and Grand streets ; and are now laying
them through other important streets.
They expect to furnish the citizens in the upper
parts of the City with a full supply of pure Gas within
the current year.
HARLEM RAIL ROAD.
The New-York and Harlsem Rail Road Company was
incorporated in 1831, with a capital of $350,000, for tlie
22 HARLEM RAIL ROAD.
purpose of constructing a Rail Road, from the central
part of the. city to Harla?ni. The route selected extends
from Prince-street, in the Bowery, along the line of the
Fourth Avenue, 7| miles to Harleeni. The road is com-
pleted from Prince-street to Yorkville, 5 miles ; a single
track is laid on granite sleepers, in the best manner,
from Prince-street to Union Place, when a double track
commences, and which is laid on granite sleepers to
Twenty-third-street, and on wood as far as Eighty-
fourth-street, or Yorkville, (except a part of the distance,
which as yet is only complete with one track.)
The road was begun to be used as far as Murray Hill
in June, 1833 ; and up to Feb., 1834, the total number of
passengers carried, was 89,094. For several months
cars drawn by horses have been in operation from
Prince-street to Yorkville, and they now run as often as
once in each half hour every day in the week. The fare
for each passenger is 12^ cents, and the daily expenses of
each car is computed at $2,75, exclusive of wear and
The excavations and deep cuttings, through the solid
rock, and the extensive embankments over valleys, on
the line of this Rail Road, are well worthy of observation.
An excursion to Yorkville is at once pleasant and
At Yorkville the company have erected a splendid
Hotel, which at present is kept by George Nowlan. It
is a spacious two story building, 80 feet in length by 30
feet in width, having a piazza around both stories. The
elevation is 125 feet above tide water, commanding a
view of the surrounding country, Hell-gate, and the
East River, that has no equal on the Island.
SUPPLY 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
comfort of the citizens. The Bronx and Croton rivers
have been suggested as sources of supply ; also the Pas-
saic, at Paterson, New-Jersey. The quantity of water
SUPPLY OF WATER.
required for the supply of the City, is estimated at over
four millions of gallons per day or 20 g:allons for each
person, including 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 made by Mr. Weston, in
1799. There are numerous wells, with pumps in all
parts of the City; but the pump water is generally con-
sidered bad and deleterious in its character, south of a
line from the Hudson River through Spring-street,
to the Bowery and Third Avenue, and thence to
Thirteenth-street and the East River. In the remaining
parts of the City, it is generally indifferently good ; but
it is also annually losing its purity.
For washing, rain water 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
neighbourhood. It has been ascertained that there are
now brought to the City daily by drays or water carts,
600 hogsheads, for which there is paid one dollar and
twenty-five cents for each hogshead, (or about one cent
per gallon,) amounting to $750 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
constantly losing their purity. Many of the large hotels
pay from $200 to $450, annually, for water, and the
smaller classes of boarding and private houses pay from
$15 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 129,895
hhds. per year, (8,183,895 gallons,) which at 31 and 50

cents per hogshead, is $160 per day, or $50,080 paid per
MANHATTAN WATER WORKS.
In 1799 the Manhattan Company was incorporated,
with a view to supply the City with pure and whole-
some water. The charter is perj)etual, and the capital
over two millions of tlollars, (see page 9o,) the surplus
funds being emi)loyed in banking.
Tlie Company have, by the charter, the control over
the streams and springs on New-York Island, and the
county of Westchester, for the above object.
Their works are situated in Reed-street, a short dis-
tance north of the City Hall. The water is raised by two
steam engines, from a well in Cross-street, twenty-five
feet in diameter, to a reservoir in Chambers-street, eleva-
ted 15 feet above Broadway, from whence the water is
distributed in iron and wooden pipes lO the lower parts of
the City. In 1823, the slcam engines worked 16 hours
per day, and raised in 24 hours, 691 ,200 gallons. 25 miles
of pipes were then down, and 2000 houses, besides ma-
nufactories, itc, were supplied by the Company, who
had expended $400,000 in constructing the works. The
well, from which the water is obtained, was the old Tea
Water pump, and the water was formerly considered
the best on the island. That it has greatly deteriorated
in quality, appears from the following analysis, made in
183J, of a gallon of the Manhattan water:
Muriate of Soda, 45.20
Muriate of Magnesia, 40.00
Sulphate of Magnesia, 6.00
Carbonate of Lime, with a little Carbo-
nate of Magnesia, 12.80
Sulphate of Lime, 4.00
Extracti^ e matter, combined with water,. 17.80
Mass in a gallon of water, 125.80
The Manhattan Company, since 1823, have employed
Mr. Disbrow to construct a well near the corner of
Bleecker-street and Broadway. Its diameter is 8 inches,
and its depth is 442 feet, containing 1154 gallons.
WATER, CITY RESERVOIR.
WATEK COMPANIES NOT IN OPERATION.
The following companies have been at different times
incorporated by the Legislature of this State, for_ the
purpose of supi)lying the City with water, but are neither
of them in operation, nameh — The Sharon Canal Com-
pany, incorporated in 18x;3; The New- York Water
Works, incorporated in 1825; Harlccm Spring Water
Company, incorporated in 1827.
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
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 ex-
cavated in solid rock ; its bottom is 62 feet below common
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 75 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
feet of the surface of tlie ground, and the whole contains
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 83^ 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 jiipes, of 20 inches
diameter. The total cost of the works, exclusive of
pipes, was $42,233 ; 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 i)er fool.

(The cost of one mile of pipe, of 12 inches diameter, is
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-
PROPOSED SUPPLY OF WATER FROM THE CROTON
AND BRONX RIVERS.
Surveys of routs and estimates of the expense of
bringing water to the City from tlie Croton and Bronx
Rivers, have been recently made by order of the Cor-
poration. An Act passed the Legislature of the State,
May 2, 1834, " to provide for supplying the City of New-
York with pure and wholesome water," by which the
Governor and Senate are authorized to appoint five citi-
zens, to be called " Water Commissioners," who are to
examine andconsider all matters relating to the subject,
cause surveys to be made, and adopt such plans as they
may deem most advantageous.* Said Commissioners
are to report to the Common Council, who,if they approve
thereof, are to cause the opinion of the electors of the
city to be taken at the next charter election by ballots
of "yes" and "no." If a majority of the electors are
found to be in favour of the measure, the Common Council
are authorized to raise by loan $2,500,000.
The united streams which can be brought to, the City
in an aqueduct are estimated to afford a daily supply
of 32 millions of gallons. The present demand of
the City is probably not more than 6 millions. The total
length of the aqueduct, which it is proposed to construct
of mason work, will be about 47 miles, and the estimated
expense (exclusive of pipes in the City) is from five to
six 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
violation of the same.
* For their names, see page 32.
CEMETERIES AND MONUMENTS. 27
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 10 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 $250. An
ordinance has been recently adopted, directing the ex-
tension of Pine-street across Broadvi^ay, through Trinity
churchyard, one of the most ancient cemeteries in the
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 feet high) in St. Paul's
churchyard, where are also the monuments to Major
Gen. Montgomery, and George Frederick Cooke the
celebrated tragedian. In Trinity churchyard is the
monument to Capt. James Lawrence, who fell in the
contest between the U. S. frigate Chesapeake and the
British frigate Shannon, during the last war.

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 one million and a half copies have been
issued in eighteen years. The Society is under the di-
rection of a board of thirty-six Lay Managers, (Baptists,
Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Episcopal Methodists,
Reformed Dutch, and Society of Friends,) who meet
once a month, without pay, and inspect and give direc-
tions 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 proceedings.
The Society has now nearly one thousand Auxiliary
Societies, scattered through every State and Territory in
the Union. The Auxiliaries receive books at the very
lowest rates at which they can be made, and when unable
to buy, are furnished with them gratuitously.
Any person becomes an annual member, and has a
right to buy books at cost, bv paying $3. A member
for life pays $30, and a director for life $150.
The Society's houses, built by funds given for this
object, cover one hundred feel 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 1,000 Bibles per
day, can easily be made. The Society keeps no perma-
nent funds, but expends all contributed, in circulathig
the Scriptures at home or abroad.

The following description of this interesting Institution
was written by one of the pupils, a young man, 20 years
of age, and is given as a specimen of the effects of in-
struction upon the deaf and dumb :
A DESCRIPTION OF THE INSTITUTION.
This is a very large house, denominated the Institution
for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb ; the Legislature
of the State of New-York have granted funds to defray
the expense of building it. It is situated on a piece of
ground between the Third Avenue and the Middle Road,
about three miles north of the City, about a mile and a
half east of the Hudson River, about three quarters of a
mile west of the East River, and about four miles south
of the Harlcem Bridge. It was commenced in 1827, and
completed in 1829. Men were employed in building it
at the expense of $31,000. It has about 25 rooms, three
of which are school rooms, for the instruction of the deaf
and dumb; two of them are studying rooms for them;
MORAL INSTITUTIONS. 73
several are occupied by teachers and men, some fur-
nished as parlours for visiters, and one as a library pre-
sented by the benevolent.
The lens^th of the building is 110 feet, and its width 60
feet, and it has abasement, and three stories, and looks
like a college. The basement contains a dining-roorn, a
washing-room, a kitchen, and ironing-room. There is a
partition between two yards, and sheds under which the
males and females play.
The Institution is provided with six well qualified and
experienced teachers ; five of whom assist Mr. Peet in
the duties of instructing the scholars in their five classes.
The ])rincipal of the New-York Institution is Mr. Peet.
And his duty is to take care of all the pupils, to make
rules of conduct for them, and to have the superintend-
ence and government. Pie was appointed a secretary
of said Institution by the Board of Directors, in the place
of Dr. Akerly, resigned. The Directors hold meetings
monthly, to consult about the business of the Institution,
and employ him in taking charge of all the pupils.
There are ten acres of land belonging to the Institu-
tion, which consist of meadows, a lawn, and two gardens.
The meadows produce grass in abundance, which is
converted into hay. The largest garden is planted with
vegetables, and the other has various flowers for the
female pupils. There is a shop built of wood, in which
four competent and capable men have three trades to
instruct the male pupils in the department of work and
industry. And these trades consist of the cabinet-work,
tailoring, and shoemaking. There is a stable standing
opposite to the shop, in which horses, wagons, hay, and
straw are kept.

CUSTOM HOUSE. 123
(From Pine to Cedar-street, near Nassau-street.)
A new Custom House is now erecting on the site of
the old one, at the corner of Wall and Nassau streets,
extending to Pine-street. The following is a description
of the contemplated building.
The building is to be 177 feet long, and S9 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
basement story, ascended by nineteen steps from Wall-
street, and six steps on Pine-street. There are to be
eight Grecian doric columns at each front, and fifteen co-
lumns and anta3 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 antfe, and six antas attached to the walls of
the rear front, leavina; a space of eight feet and a half
between the columns and antfe. There will thus be
twenty-four outside columns, five feet eight inches diame-
ter at the bottom, and thirty two-feet hiffh, including the
capital, and eighteen antaj on the two sides of the same
height, five feet wide, and three feet nine inches projec-
tion from the walls. The six inner columns of the main
front will be four feet eight inches diameter at bottom,
and the anta; to correspond. The building is to be two
Btories 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-
eeven feet wide in the centre part, which is a circle of
Beventy feet diameter, with the length and breadth of the
room extending beyond its circumference to these dimen-
■ions ; aiid the four porta so extended beyond the circle
124 CUST03I HOUSE.
are thirty-three and a half feet wide, leaving six rooms
and three circular staircases in the four corners, the two
largest rooms to he twenty -four hy twenty-one feet each,
besides a square 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 number, shape, and sizes of rooms are had iu
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 fluted
doric columns to support the vaulting and the pavement
under the dome of the great hall.
Business hours, from 10 to 3. Entries must be made
before 2 o'clock.

ries are of the Ionic order, from the temj)le of Minerva
Polias, at Priene, in Ionia. A recessed elliptical portico
of about 40 feet wide has been introduced in Iront, with
great convenience and beauty. A screen of four co-
lumns and two antfe, each column being thirty feet high,
and three feet four inches in diameter above the base,
composed of a single block of marble, extends across the
front of the portico, nearly in a line w ith the front of the
building. The colunnis support an entablature of about
six feet in height, upon which rests the third story, ma-
king a heiglit of about 60 feet from the ground. On each
side of the ])ortico is a passage through the basement
story to the Post Office and Exchange-street.
The principal entrance to the Exchange Room is by a
flight of nine or ten marble steps, with a pedestal at each
end. On ascending to the portico, three doors open to
the vestibule in front, while one on either hand opens
mto Insurance Offices, &c. The vestibule is of the
Ionic order, from the little Ionic temple of Illyssus.
The Exchange Room is 85 feet long, 55 wide, and 45
high; adjacent to it ^re the offices of the Daily Adverti-
ser and the Atlas; to which latter establishment is at-
tached an extensive Reading Room of Newspapers. The
Office of the Journal of Commerce is in the basement.
In the rear of the Exchange Room is a place for auction
sales, and in the second story are rooms for the Board of
Brokers, and the Chamber of Commerce. The building
was begun on the first of April, 1825, and completed in
July, 1827. The plan was wholly that of M. E. Thomp-
son, the architect of the edifice.

is an office, and the name of the state ought not to be
omitted. Letters are often missent, from their ambiguous
direction. A punctual attention to this rule may prevent
delays and miscarriages.
If an abatement of letter postage be claimed, the letter
must be opened in the presence of the Post Master, or
one of his assistants; and if such letter should, instead
of being overcharged, happen to be undercharged, the
deficiency must be made up by the applicant.
All letters which are lodged to go by the British Pac-
kets, should be distinguished by writing, per packet, for
there are ])Iaces of the same name in the United States,
similar to those in Europe,

within six months from the time the buildinsf was com-

fortable, and capable of full v accommodating 1200 persons,

(Opposite St. Paul's Church, Broadway.)
This excellent institution was founded in 1810, by the
late John Scudder, bv whose arduous efforts, and the
persevering exertions of its more recent proprietors, it
has arose to its present high standing. It continues daily
to improve in every department, by extensive and valua-
ble additions of the works of Nature and artificial curio-
sities, from all parts of the world. Its iminense collec-
tions are well arranged and beautifully displayed in tour
spacious Saloons, each one hundred feet in length, which
have now become so well filled, that another apartment
(now in a state of preparation) of still larger dimensions
is necessary for its accommodation. 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 continu-
ance of that liberal and distinguished patronage it has
always received. The building is very high, and from
its observatory 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 evening 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 Na-
Admittance, 25 cents — children, half price.
PEALE's MUSE0M AND GALLERY OF THE FINE ARTS.
(Broadway, opposite the Park.)
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
vv^hich may be particularly mentioned, a Portrait of Na-
poleon, by Lc Fevre ; a Magdalen, by Le Bron, togetlier
with Portraits of at least 150 celebrated citizens 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 Mum-
my, the tattooed 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.
The principal Baths, for the accommodation of strangers
and citizens, are the following :
Arcade Bath, 39 Chambers-street.
Washington Bath, 533 Pearl-street.
Mansion House Bath, 39 Broadway.
Besides many others of less note.
The sea water Baths are conveniently arranged, and
are much frequented during warm weather. The princi-
pal Baths are at the Battery, and near Murray-street,
on the North River.
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.
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, steam-boats, and small vessels, that are

constantly entering and departing from the port, forming
a scene of stirring interest. Of the bay itself, we deem it
appropriate in this place to quote the language of a late
"1 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
faintest 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-
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
This favourite promenade was originally a fortifica-
tion, thrown up by the Dutch, and planted with cannon,
from which circumstance it derives its name. Its bounds
have been much enlarged by tilling 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.
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 wliich it has been leased for a place of public
amusement or recreation. On the top of the walls a
walk, covered by an awning, has been constructed, from
whence a line view of the harbour and adjacent scenery
is obtained. Within the walls over ten thousand people
may be accommodated, and concerts and tire works are

particularly l)y the extension of Lafayette-place through

its attractions weakened.

weekly until May, 1834. This has been varied occa-
sionally by essays, generally from the pens of ladies.

The village of Williamsburg, in the town of Bush-
wick, is situated on the East River, (950 yards wide,)
opposite Corlaer's Hook, and has intercourse with the
City of New-York, hy a ferry, from the foot of Grand-
Flaibush, 5 miles from New-York, is a delightful place
of residence ; it is the seat of Erasmus Hall Academy,
and was the scene of a sanguinary battle between tire
British and Americans in 1776.
Bath, in the town of New-Utrecht, Long Island, 8 miles
south of Brooklyn, 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
At Coney Island, which is 2 miles from Bath, and is
joined to Long Island, by a bridge across a narrow inlet,
is a fine beach for bathing, with a public house and other
Jamaica, on Long Island, is a beautiful and flourishing
town ; having a village of the same name, 12 miles from
Brooklyn, and is to be connected with the latter place by
a rail road. The Union Race Course is situated at the
west end of Jamaica, about 8 miles from Brooklyn.
Rockaway, on the Atlantic Ocean, is 8 miles from
Jamaica, and 20 from New-York. This is a favourite
resort for sea bathing, the fine beach aftbrding great ad-
vantages for that purpose. A splendid Hotel, (the Ma-
rine Pavilion,) has been recently erected by an associa-
tion of between 70 and 80 gentlemen, of the City of New-
York, of whom Philip Hone, Jno. A. King and Rob'tRay
are Trustees. It has been opened the present season by
Horatio Blake and Alonzo Reed, who have furnished the
house on a liberal scale, every article being new, and of
a chaste and appropriate style. The Hotel ia 230 feet in

front, 3 stories in height, with two wings, and two mag-
nificent 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 feet. From the
front is an unrivalled view of the Atlantic Ocean, Sandy
Hook, and the shipping passing the narrowpjto and from
the harbour of JNew- York; and the rear affords a pros-
pect of Jamaica bay and the adjacent country. The
front Piazza forms a cool and delightful promenade,
(fronting the Ocean, at a distance of 70 rods,) where the
eye can contemplate at morn one of the most sublime
spectacles in nature, namely, the sun rising in all its
splendour, apparently from the mighty deep.
Newtown, on Long Island, 8 miles from New- York, is
a pleasant place of residence; the town abounds in good
farms and gardens, producing delicious fruits, particular-
ly the Newtown pippin.
Flushing, on Long Island, is about 10 miles from the
City, and is a pleasant and healthy retreat. The village
is situated at the head of Flushing bay. A steamboat
and stages go and return, daily, from Flushing to New-
York. The Linnaean Botanic Garden, at Flushing, was
established about the year 1750, by William Prince, the
father of the elder proprietor. The Botanic Garden and
nurseries attached, cover an extent of upwards of forty
acres, and contain about 10,000 species and varieties of
trees and plants. Particular attention has been paid to
the culture of the vine and the mulberry. The green-
house department is on a large scale, containing about
30,000 plants. In the other departments will be found
fruit trees of all the various kinds — orntimental trees and
shrubs; herbaceous, flowering, and medicinal plants;
bulbous and tuberous rooted flowers ; and American in-
digenous trees and plants.
Visiters are allowed free access to the garden, on all
days, except Sunday.

Glen Cove, 20 miles east from New-York; Oyster
Bay, 26 miles, and Cold Spring, 30 miles, are all places
of considerable resort, being pleasantly situated on the
north side of Long Island.
Westchester, Eastchester, and Neio-Rochelle, in West-
chester county, are all pleasant towns, situated on
the north side of Long Island Sound. Most of the
above places are visited daily by steamboats from the
Staten Island, forming the county of Richmond, New-
York, is about 6 miles from the City; it is separated from
New-Jersey by Staten Island Sound, and from Long
Island by the Narrows and New-York Bay. It is 16
miles long and 7 broad, and is generally rough and hilly.
The Quarantine Ground, on the southeast side of
Staten Island, is a place of great resort. Steamboats
run several times, daily, to and from Whitehall-slip to
Tompkiusville, where is situated the Quarantine dock ;
also a number of extensive hospitals, being well regulated
establishments, placed on a high and healthy spot,
favoured with breezes from the ocean. The salubrity of
the place caused the shore to be selected as a fit place
for receiving invalids and sickly ships, arriving from
Sailor'' s Snug" Harbour. — This interesting Institution,
founded by the late Captain Robert R. Randal, for the
reception of" old and worn-out infirm seamen," formerly
located at the upper end of Broadway, is now situated
on Staten Island, near the Quarantine Ground. The
trustees have erected a large and commodious building,
where some fifty or sixty disabled seamen have found a
Snug Harbour for life — where they have every want sup-
plied, and at the same time are required to occupy only
as much time for labour as will contribute to their health
and comfort. A farm belongs to the Institution, contain-
ing nearly 150 acres of fine land, commanding an exten-
sive view of the distant city and bay.

Perth Amhoy, New-Jersey, is pleasantly situated on a
fine harbour, 13 miles from New-Brunswick, and 23
eouth-west of New-York. At South Amboy, on the op-
posite side of the harbour, the Camden and Ambo^ Rail
Road commences. This has now become the prmcipal
thoroughfare between New-York and Philadelphia.
Long Branch, 30 miles south of New-York, is a
fashionable resort for sea bathing, in summer, from New-
York and Philadelphia. An extensive view of the At-
lantic Ocean is here obtained.
Newark, New Jersey, is a handsome and flourishing
town, situated on the Passaic River, 9 miles from New-
York. The location is on a plain considerably elevated
above the river, and from the hill on the west side of the
town there is a fine prospect of the surrounding country.
The Morris Canal terminates here, and boats descend
from the canal to the river by an inclined plane, which
is well worthy of the observation of visiters. Newark
contains about 13,000 inhabitants, most of whom are oc-
cupied in various manufactures. Among the articles
made here, are carriages, leather, saddlery, boots, and
shoes, plated ware, jewelry, and coach lace, which are
sent to various markets in large quantities. More than 300
buildings have been erected during the past year. From
orchards in the vicinity, the celebrated Newark Cider
is produced. A steamboat plies regularly from New-
York to Newark. The distance by water is about 17

Orang-e Springs are deli2;htfully situated, 4 miles
from Newark, and 13 from New- York, and are much
frequented during- summer, by numbers, for the benefit of
the mineral waters, and the enjoyment of the beauties of
the romantic scenery in tlae vicinity.
Elizahethtordn is 6 miles south of Newark, and is a
pleasant residence and place of resort. It is situated on
creek, which runs into Staten Island Sound, and a
Aeamboat plies from New-York to the Point, two miles
from the town. The population of the town is about 3500.
Paterson, also in Essex County, New Jersey, is a
large manufacturing village, situated at the Falls of the
Passaic, 14 miles from Hoboken, (opposite New-York,)
from whence, to Paterson, a rail-road has been recently
constructed and is now in operation. The Morris Canal
passes through the place. The manufactories are nu-
merous, and among the principal are, 17 coiton mills,
several machine shops, iron and brass foundries, sail
duck and paper mills, nail factory, &c. The popula-
tion is about 9,000.
The Passaic Falls, at Paterson, are an object of
curiosiiy, and attract numerous visiters. The river here
descends over a precipice of 72 feet perpendicular into a
narrow chasm, and presents a scene of romantic beauty,
although the eft'ect is much lessoned by the diversion
of water into the canal which supplies the manufac-
Hohoken, New-Jersey, opposite New-York, where
the North River is about a mile and a half wide, is a
favourite resort for the citizens during the summer.
Steam ferry-boats run from Barclay-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 65 cents. Near the ferry is a public
house, in front of which is a fine lawn, where aeata 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 ele-
vated and rocky bank of the river for about a mile, at the
termination of which is a grove, called the Elysian
Fields, where a handsome Pavilion has been erected,
and from whence is a fine view of the North River and
the opposite city.
Wehawken Hill is a mile farther north, and is a ro-
mantic spot, from whence is an extensive prospect. The
place where Gen. Hamilton fell, and many duels have
been fought, is on the bank of the river, below the hill,
