The land rises, by a very gentle ascent, 2 miles from the water to an extended plain, and from the elevated parts of the city are fine views of the lake, of Niagara river, of the Erie canal, and the Canada shore. The city has broad and regular streets. Main-street is 2 miles long, and 120 feet wide, and is splendidly built with large stores, dwellings, and hotels, and presents a very imposing appearance; and other parts of the city are built with neatness and taste. There are 3 public squares, which add much to the salubrity and beauty of the city. The public buildings of the city are a court house, jail, and county clerk's office, 2 markets, in the second story of one of which are the city offices; 17 churches, of which the Presbyterians have 3, the Episcopalians 2, the Baptists 1, the German Protestants 3, the Methodists 1, the Roman Catholics 2, the Unitarians 1, the Universalists 1; there are also 1 Bethel and 2 African churches. There are an orphan asylum, 2 banking houses, an insurance company, a theatre, and several hotels, of which the American is one of the finest in the country. Among the useful institutions of the city, the Young Mens' Association, who have a choice library of 3,500 volumes, and the public schools, under the control of the common council, for the education of the whole population, without charge for tuition, deserve to be mentioned. Buffalo stands as a great gate between the East and the West, through which much of their commerce must pass; and it is a great depot for the western country. The harbor of Buffalo is spacious and safe, having 12 or 14 feet of water a mile from its entrance into the lake; but it originally had a bar across its mouth. To obviate this, and the better to protect the harbor, a pier has been constructed of wood and stone, by the United States, extending 1,500 feet from the s. side of the mouth of the creek, upon the end of which a light-house is erected, 20 feet in diameter at its base, and 40 feet high. This pier operates as a breakwater, and, by confining the creek, has served to clear its channel, so that vessels drawing 8 feet of water pass freely. But the greatest difficulty of the harbor of Buffalo arises from the accumulation of ice, on the breaking up of the lake, driven into it by the strong westerly winds, so that it often remains obstructed after the lake is clear. There are 50 or 60 steamboats, and 300 schooners and other craft which navigate Lake Erie and the connected lakes, engaged in the commerce between Buffalo and the west. The tonnage in 1840, was 4,916. The arrivals of steamboats and other vessels in 1840, were, 4,061; clearances, 4,851. The amount of property sent e. on the Erie canal from Buffalo, at the same date, was 177,607 tons. The amount of goods, including domestic manufactures, salt, &c, received by the canal, and shipped to the west, was 98,733 tons. Tolls received amounted to $376,417. Buffalo is connected with Black Rock, and with Niagara Falls, by railroads. There were in 1840, 23 for. commission houses, cap. $94,000; 231 ret. stores, cap. $736,335; 1 woollen fac, 3 tanneries, 2 distilleries, 1 pottery, 4 flouring m., 1 grist m., 2 saw m., 2 oil m., 10 printing offices, 5 daily, 4 weekly, 1 semi-weekly newspapers, and 6 periodicals. Cap. in manufac, $630,300. It was originally laid out by the Holland Land Company, in 1801. It was entirely burned by the British in 1814, excepting 2 buildings. It then contained 200 dwellings. The inhabitants, however, received $80,000 from Congress as a compensation for their losses. The commencement of the rapid growth and great importance of this place may be dated from the opening of the Erie canal, though as the eastern limit of lake navigation it was gradually rising before that event.
