most handsomely laid-out for a large city. Its
streets are wide and beautiful, and its late improvements are large and
business houses recently put up, and those now going up, are upon a scale of
magnitude and beauty equal to those of any city.
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.
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
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
are business cards and advertisements for local businesses:
the card of Messrs. G.W. Brainard & Bro.,
Galt House (Messrs. John Raine & Co., Proprietors) is justly an object of
interest and pride to the city of
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
