STATE OF KENTUCKY

The State of Kentucky has an area of 16,949,748 acres of land, 5,968270 of which are in cultivation.  Some of the largest grain and stock farms in the West of South are in this state.  Corn, tobacco, hemp, grass and small grain, are the staples of this state.  Stock growing is receiving increased attention within the last few years and is paying well for that attention.  The following reference to the Census of 1850, will show the annual amount of the principal products of Kentucky .

 

Bushels of Corn; 58,672,591; Wheat; 2,142,822; Oats; 8,201,311; lbs. of butter, 9,947,523; lbs. of wool, 2,297,433; pounds of tobacco, 55,501,196; tons of hemp, 1,3435; swine, 2,891,163; sheep, 1,102,091.

Population, whites 761,413; slaves 210,981, free colored, 5,148. Total 9,824,05.  Merchants 3,177; Lawyers, 995; Doctors, 1818; Ministers of the Gospel 931.

If rich lands, minerals, water power, forests of fine timber, fruits, fine springs of water, with the application of skilful agriculture, manufacturers, mining, commerce, rail roads, steam boat navigation, &c., can make a rich state, then Kentucky will ere long be a very rich state.

In chivalry and patriotism she stands deservedly high.  She has many excellent schools and colleges and is taking the proper steps to establish a system of general education.

The citizens of Kentucky are celebrated for sobriety, morality, intelligence and cordial hospitality to each other and to strangers.

We regret that the returns from all the counties of this state did not come in, in time to be inserted.  We shall make an earnest effort and hope to succeed in making a full and flattering report for Kentucky in our next volume.

LOUISVILLE

 

Is most handsomely laid-out for a large city.  Its streets are wide and beautiful, and its late improvements are large and city-like.

The business houses recently put up, and those now going up, are upon a scale of magnitude and beauty equal to those of any city.

If there is any distinctive feature in the trade of this city it is in the drug line.  The tobacco, Pork, Groceries, Shoes and Dry Goods trades are also large.  The newspaper and publishing offices are large and well conducted.  And the music and book trade is not less important.

The churches, Halls and other public buildings are of a size and finish indicating both liberality and good taste.  There has been, till recently, a sinful negligence on the subject of popular or general education.  To the late liberal policy adopted by this city for objects of education, much is due to the agency of the press.  No public or national interest comes more immediately under the control of the press than this, and yet but few writers comparatively act as if they were sensible of their obligations.  As the press sustains education, so will education sustain the press.  Let the press of every village, town and city, imitate the example of the Louisville press in pressing the claims of universal educations.

The population of Louisville is supposed to be about 60,000.  Its manufacturing interests have grown up rapidly within the last few years.  No business interest contributes so much to the permanent growth and prosperity of a city or a community, as manufacturing.  Here is productive capital.

We call attention to the business cards of this city, and we regret that our agent, Mr. Collins, not ourself, had time to canvass and present the claims of our work.

                            -----------------------------------------------

 

SECOND PART

General Commercial advertiser

These are business cards and advertisements for local businesses:

 

See the card of Messrs. G.W. Brainard & Bro., No. 109 Fourth Street .  Their stock and fixtures for printing music, together with the number and style of their Piano Fortes, and every other musical instrument usually kept in music stores, cannot fail to please the ear, the eye and the cultivated taste.  We commend this establishment and the gentlemanly proprietors to the favor and confidence of the trade.

                         ----------------------------------------------

 

The Galt House (Messrs. John Raine & Co., Proprietors) is justly an object of interest and pride to the city of Louisville and the whole business and travelling public.  Every luxury that the market can afford, done up in exquisite style, is here bountifully furnished.

The size, ventilation and furniture of every apartment in this large establishment, exhibit a taste and an appreciation of the comfort and the wants of the public worthy of all commendation.

                                       --------------------------------------------                       

 

Nock, Wicks & Co.---This house is large and very centrally located.  Their trade with the South and South West, “particularly,” is very heavy in liquors, tobacco, starch, soap, cider, Vinegar, &c., usually manufactured in the West.  The senior partner, Mr. Nock, is well and favorably known as a merchant for the last twenty years in this city, and is now one of the wealthy men of the state.  The locality of their principal trade and their acquaintance in the manufacturing towns and cities of the Ohio River, offer inducements to shippers of cotton and Pig iron to this market and consignments from manufacturers.

                                   -----------------------------------------------

 

We call attention to the card of Rowland, Russell & Co.  The soap and candle manufactory is one of the largest in the South or West, and is fully entitled to all that their card claims, and much more.  We cordially commenf them to the trade of the whole South and West.

                               --------------------------------------------------

 

As an evidence of the extent of Mr. Spencer’s business, two of his bills for advertising were shewn me, which reach the small amount in round numbers of two hundred dollars each, for the last quarter ending June 30.  Let no one wonder at his success.  See his card.

                                  ------------------------------------------------

 

By politeness of Mr. Lindenberger, of the firm of Lindanberger & Co., I was shown through their large and commodious four story building, 180 feet deep, and was much pleased with their arrangements and capacity for their business.  In looking over their sales book, I found they were supplying the trade of a large section of the South and West.  This is one of the oldest houses in this line of business in Louisville , and I can confidently recommend them to dealers furnishing drugs in that city.  If you want a plug of fine tobacco, or a choice cigar, call and you will not fail to be liberally supplied with the best.  On this point I speak from experience.

                                       --------------------------------------------

 

J. S. Morris & Son.--This is one of the oldest Drug houses in the city, having been established nearly thirty years ago.  Joseph S. Morris, the senior partner, has been in the business from his youth, graduated at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy in 1825, and is considered by importers and druggists as the best judge of goods West of the mountains.  The Junior partner served his business apprenticeship in one of the largest chemical laboratories in Philadelphia , and is a graduate of the college.  The already handsome and commodious four story warehouse is undergoing repairs and being enlarged, and when completed will be two hundred feet in length.

                                         ----------------------------------------

 

Hayes, Craig & Co. --Among the manufacturers of Louisville, Hayes, Craig & Co., hold a prominent position; their establishment is the oldest of the kind in the city, and the most extensive hat and cap warehouse in the West and South.  Their facilities for manufacturing enables them to compete successfully in the sale of their goods with all Eastern cities, and for elegance of style and beauty of finish, have taken two first class premiums at the World’s Fair, over Europe and America.  Being practical men, honorable and upright in their dealings, they owe their success to their perseverance and industry.

                                   -------------------------------------------------------

 

See the extra card of Messrs. Bent, Duvall & Co., Importers and dealers in Carpeting &c.  This house stands A No. 1 and are doing a very large and accommodating and very satisfactory business. We invite the attention of all country dealers to this house.  Every thing in the line of house furnishing goods can be had here on terms to please.
