PREFATORY REMARKS.
FIRST VICTORIA DIRECTORY.
It has been thought by the author of the following work
that the present being an age of advancement, the period has
fully arrived when our fair town of Victoria is of sufficient
importance to deserve that index of commercial progress, a
Directory.
A Directory', in the full sense of the word, is a guide to the
streets, (to the stranger), the houses in the streets, and the occu'
pants of those houses, whether private individuals or engaged
in business pursuits. The trades then follow, in categorical,
we should say alphabetical, order. Then, to offer additional
facilities, is given an alphabetical list of all persons in the good
town contained, irrespective of callings, of occupations, and
if any or none. In a place of the largest resort, the work
might be amplified by adding to this a Law Directory, a Postal
Directory, an Official Directory, a Court Directory, etc. But it
will be understood, at a moment's reflection, that Victoria is
very far from reaching this point of importance; and so our
views with regard to it must be much more moderate. We
must only hope that it will ere long require increased attention
in this particular; when the author, assisted by public patronage, will be most happy to do justice to its political and commercial merits.
It will be necessary, then, to remind but very few that Victoria is the largest settlement on this Island of Vancouver.
At a period of less than two years ago, the population of
.jj 12
FIRST VICTORIA DIRECTORY.
Victoria numbered but some few hundreds. The inhabitants
of the Island consisted of but some twelve to thirty settlers,
independently of the Hudson's Bay Company. ( Vide Mr. James
Cooper's testimony in the Blue Book.) A fortunate accident,
the discovery of a certain quantity of gold—or shall we say,
the fact of gold having been discovered in the country and
its surroundings—first called the attention of the world to the
small matter of the existence of Vancouver Island.
This discovery took large dimensions. It was bruited abroad
that the glories of California and Australia were to be repeated; not only repeated, but "pale their ineffectual fires" before those of the "better land"; that as it had been found in
the former country that the yield of gold increased towards the
head or upper part of California mountain ranges, so it was
fairly presumed that the boundless source of the precious metal
was to be found on British ground.
The influence of the "leading journal" mightily propagated
the news.
In the home country, men began earnestly to inquire for the
shortest route to this new world of wealth; and diligently
did they, for the nonce, refer to their maps and geographies,
and promptly was the information of the fact of Vancouver
being, confirmed by business chart sellers and "geographers
to the Queen." Then were peaceable inhabitants of Great
Britain further surprised by the intelligence that England had
made herself another colony—two colonies—Vancouver Island
and British Columbia.
"We learned that New Caledonia was thenceforth stripped of
a portion of its area, in extent about seven hundred miles;
namely, all west of the Rocky Mountains, in that hitherto
terra incognita, British North America, as far as the Pacific
Ocean, and running from the boundary of the United States
on the South, to Simpson's River and Peace River on the
North; that Queen Charlotte's L-sland was to be part of it. We
learned that the Hudson's Bay Company's charter, then shortly
to expire, was not to be renewed in the two colonies—in fact,
in British Columbia—was to cease, and did cease immediatety
on the reading of the Queen's proclamation constituting the
colony.    This proclamation was read by His Excellency, the PREFATORY REMARKS.

cC
newly appointed Governor, James Douglas, on or about the
^28a November of last year.
We had been already informed, in reliable intelligence, that
above 35,000 immigrants, from California and elewhere had
already arrived, and had produced a most marvelous state of
transition in the two countries.
On arriving here, we found, to our surprise, a town of already
some little pretensions. Houses had been built where before
only intended; streets were formed, stores filled and goods sold;
wharves built for the convenience of landing passengers and
goods. The former had sometimes arrived in numbers of 1,800
and 2,000 at a time.
"The. Fort" began to be surrounded, and strangers had
already to ask their way to it. Victoria, in short, had something the appearance of a reality, small though it was. As
time grew on, we were further convinced of the earnestness of
its intended career of vitality, by the remarkable pains, whether in charity or not is perhaps a moot question, taken to kill
it, and deny its existence and that of the gold country, by
patriotic news authors, in whose eyes its progress was undesirable.
It may be thought stepping considerably out of one's path,
not as a chronicler of Victoria's history, but simply refreshers
of its memory, to enlarge on the thrilling steps necessary to,
and taken by, the adventurer, possessed by the "auri sacra
fames." The last quotation might lessen our pity; or pity we
should, and sympathize with we must, those bold spirits who
from far and near, rushed to the social (? solitary) strife, and
braved distance, danger, an unknown topography, a treacherous navigation, a subtle and often cruel foe in Indian shape;
and all quite as much in search of the wonderful, the unknown,
the terrible, as of mere utilitarian gold; for it must have been
known to the large mass of adventurers that success would not
be their guerdon. Then began fatally to tell the ignorance in
which the country, by great accident or fortuitous circumstances, had hitherto been shrouded. Who knew that "the Sound
was perilous to cross?" Who knew that "a thousand islands"
in dread archipelago, surrounded by and playing with a thou-

sand perverse counter-currents, were to be met and passed.
That, though spiteful for its size, and rich in wreck debris,
and gluttonous of human bodies, as was the fell " gulf," there
was a " deeper still;" that subtle Fraser river ran swiftly to
embrace in death the inexperienced mariner (?). That after
concealing its entrance to the sea by low, undignified, sedgy
borders, as if ashamed of past misdeeds, and doing its all if
not to repel the uninitiated, at least to mislead before destroying ; (and many and fairy-like are the tales to be told by
those who deal in " toils and dangers past," of most abstruse
communings with the fickle element in intricate search after
the gates of that new gold paradise, and of cruel robberies by
unsympathizing Chinooks in the golden dream.) It was still
news to the lucky adventurer, who happened to enter this
sometime forbidden portal to the happy land, that, before hope-
ing to tread thereon, he might be overtaken by the unannounced approach of dread winter, which could, on an emergency, alter in a few hours, by draping in snow, the leading
features of the scenery; it was news and bitter to the feelings
to pursue one's " even tenor " and camp under snow.
Rain, ice, frost, and snow, and river currents of Fraser
" rolling rapidly" (when in its glory, untold-of miles per
hour), all fraternally combined to receive, in benumbing welcome, the sturdy pioneer. Full well was their sinister work
done. Will the roll ever be published of the unnumbered
deaths in that fatal stream, on those uninviting shores, threatened by those gloomy canons ?
Enough, we know how many of the hopeful arrivals left us
in disgust, from various causes, and the gold fever abated.
All this evil arose from a want of available communication
by land or water. We know now that the first steps in all
new countries are to establish communications, level the steeps,
bridge the gaps, cut the forest trail, follow it with the bullock-
waggon track; then the metalled road, and finally the railway, follow.
Are there indeed lands which the poor settler may turn to
account and supply himself with daily bread ? Do not arid
rocks, useless trees, and savage animals, in turn, present the
features of the country ?    Then, by all means, let roads be

opened. Are, perhaps, poor settlers daily arriving, anxious,
eager to begin the early work ? Engage them, then, in the
useful toil, government providing tools, covering, wood, and
water, and remunerative wages.
When these are satisfied with their meed of labor for the
public and their own good, let them .be succeeded by others;
let the never-failing stream of immigration supply the labor
for the ever-to-be-continued work. As each one performs and
discontinues his share, let facilities (and for these facilities we
say, to the country and their fellow-subjects at least, are rulers
responsible) be afforded for permanent settlement to the willing crowd; let land, at first, be liberally given away, and
beware of grants for speculative purposes. Land, wild, tenanted only by the bear, the wolf, and the deer, is valueless ;
but land obtained gratuitously by industrious men, and by
them made to produce the " fruits of the earth," is valuable,
because turned to its natural and intended use, and enhances
the value {gives it then, in fact,) of the remainder. Let
reserves be kept in all suitable places, and, as population
increases, then ask—because then just—a moderate price for
;the land.
We say, then, that we await, with hopeful expectation, the
forming of roads through the length and the breadth of these
colonies. We wish for much of that liberal spirit to be shown
which, exercised in profusion, would evince the greatest foresight—the granting gratuitously of land for settlement. Let,
at once, information be wide-spread as to the resources of these
fertile lands, liberal in their great agricultural resources, not
treeless, and so inviting lazy toilers (if the expression be allowable), but rich in promise of fertility; lands of many and navigable waters, where drought will ever be unheard-of, available
for numerous Red River and Saskewatchan settlements ; resources in fisheries—cod and salmon (to which the Tweed must,
and Columbia river does, yield the palm) in thronging schools;
venison here half the price of butchers' meat. Coal, copper,
and iron, doubtless, and other minerals abound. Resources in
some of the finest timber, of which treeless neighbors are glad
to avail themselves. All this without even mentioning the
gold, which, without dispute, it contains.   Let this knowledge
m

be widely circulated, let it be known to the scarcely-noticed,
hard-struggling workers at home that England possesses, AND
easy OF access, not " the gem of the Antilles," but in Vancouver Island, the gem of the Pacific; a second self in its
position, commercially, for East and West, and geographically
in view of the proposed North American Railroad from Canada. In climate, superior to England ; no easterly winds, and
but few fogs here, while it is well known that the Pacific side
of the continent, in common with western Europe, is far
superior to the east Atlantic slope. And, when this information is thus afforded, let these colonies, with unstinted hand,
give free passages to the crowds there palpitating to come to
us, on strict and independent condition of returning the amount
at an early date to pay for others.
Let us now descend to facts. A number of wharves have
been constructed this past season; a new timber bridge across
the James Bay has been built, giving access to the newly-
erected government offices for public lands and the Government
House, all in brick and of an ornamental character; streets
leading to the bridge have been new graded; several of the
leading streets have been metalled over, and are passable at all
times. A temporary want of funds alone prevents more being
done in this way, as also the completion of two embankments
(in lieu of bridges) in a ravine severing two of our streets.
Wooden buildings have ceased to be the order of the day, thus
diminishing the constant dread of fire. We note the establishment of an agency of an underwriters' association. We have
been fortunate in hitherto escaping with but one single disaster
in this shape. This latter had one beneficial effect. Some
public-spirited citizens taking the lead, a hook and ladder company has been organized, and subscriptions, to a considerable
amount, made to defray the necessary outlay of building, hook
and ladder, engine, etc., and a sum set apart for the erection.
Plans and specifications have been intrusted to an able architect
and contracts have been made at this writing, so that we trust
soon to number this useful public safeguard among our institutions. We have a police barracks (which important building
holds also the Supreme Court and the Police Court), an extensive warehouse (a large bookstore and dwelling) of two
gggggjg^gri PREFATORY REMARKS.
17
stories, at least two hotels of considerable dimensions, and
several houses, all erected in brickwork with stone fronts and
some pretensions. The Hudson's Bay Company are at this
moment erecting a warehouse, of portentous dimensions, of
stone, which they take the trouble to import from a distance
not exceeding forty miles; and a new bank, the " Bank of
British North America," still further emulous of fame, has also,
in the same spirited style, built itself an architectural home
of rubble-stone faced with squared granite masonry."
We speak within bounds when we assert that from twenty to
thirty buildings (some of great pretensions) are in progress at
this moment in the very heart of the town and its most valuable sites. An unprecedented quantity of lumber is being
worked up, and the streets present a most animated appearance.
Would we could speak so favorably of the state of the roads
and ways and the prospects of the pedestrians.
Great demands are made for a public hall for meeting and
the want of a theatre is felt. The town is by degrees assuming,
in its buildings, a staid, substantial appearance. If there is no
rapid advance there is no retrogression here. The last few
months have seen an increase in our legal defenders, and the
arrival of an Attorney-General for British Columbia. We
were long ago thought of sufficient importance to be worthy of
a Lieutenant-Governor for British Columbia and a corps of sappers and miners. We have one establishment supplying books
of a varied and valuable character, news depots and reading-
rooms. For the latter we are indebted to the Young Men's
Christian Association.
We have seen, by an effort in the right direction, large tracts
of land (20,000 acres) in the neighborhood of Victoria, put up
for sale by public auction at the upset price of $1 per acre, and
again at Nanaimo. It is with much pleasure that we can, in
this reading, report one further fact. Through a slight relaxation, by His Excellency, of the usual conditions of occupying
land in this colony, a number of settlers have been enabled to
take up pre-emption claims of 200 acres each, on the lands of
Chemainus and Salt Spring Island, about forty miles from Victoria. The number of settlers we believe to be fifty and about
100,  respectively.    This brings us to name the new Fran- •m

chise Bill, certainly a boon to the community; we mean a slight
advance on previous matters, and perhaps deserves better than
to be, as it were, dismissed in parenthesis. One of the clauses
in the bill gives the privilege of one member in the New House
of Assembly to represent the settlement just named.
From British Columbia we have to note large sales at successful amounts, in the township of New Langley and the future
capital, New Westminster. In this latter town we have a
Treasury and Custom House already erected; a considerable
sum has been set apart for grading the streets. In the Colony
in general several trails have been brought to a successful issue,
and are now in progress (among the former one of twenty-five
miles, from Fort Hope to Boston Bar)—which we accept as
earnests of more in future.
British Columbia can now boast of several townships of
promise—New Westminster, Forts Langley, Hope, Yale, and
Douglas; Lytton City, at the extremity of a beautiful fresh
water lake of an irregular shape, about forty miles long and an
average width of four miles; soundings have been found at
ten fathoms. All duties of a varying value, leviable in British
Columbia, to be paid at New Westminster.
British Columbia has a Lieutenant-Governor, a Chief Justice, an Attorney-General, District Justices, etc. The Fraser
River, as high as the capital—nineteen miles up—is navigable
for ocean steamers, which will, no doubt, show themselves frequently when the " Sound" channel shall be properly buoyed
out. The ordinary river steamers proceed as far as Hope, seventy miles from the mouth. Successful efforts have been made
(but discontinued) to proceed as far as Yale, fifteen miles
higher up.
The upset price of land in British Columbia is ten shillings,
or two dollars and a half per acre. Some thousands of acres
(if we have been correctly informed as to all the facts) in the
immediate neighborhood of New Westminster, can now be
purchased for $1 25 per acre.
Our gold exports present a flattering figure. In justice to
the country, we are bound to say that, so far as the river diggings are concerned, the time for divesting them of their valuable deposits is very limited in extent.    Like all rivers sub-

ject to freshets, and dependent for the great supply of its
waters on the winter snows, Fraser River is, in the season of
the greatest heats, subject to considerable periodical and at
times sudden increase of its waters, by the melting of the snows
on its mountain-tops. During all the growth (rise) of the river
its banks are of course unworkable. The miners who find
their pay, for the most part, on these banks, or on bars as they
are termed (aggregations of boulders, sand, and gravel, situated in the bed and, for the most part, in the bends of the river),
are of course driven off during this period. But from, say
September till the frosts set in (perhaps November, as last
year), a period of two months, and at intervals during the
course of winter, the claims are workable; the river is then
low, and keeps falling; all the snows for the season have contributed their waters, and these have run off.
Again, at^the close of the severest weather, and before the
snows have yet had inducements to melt, another short season
offers for the persevering gold miner—say from February till
the middle of April, two months more. Thus, so far as the
river diggings are concerned, the avilable time for working is
reduced to about four months, with the exception of days here
and there (in two periods), before and after the snow thaws, and
not nine months in the year, as originally set out by parties interested in trumpeting forth the gold yield! We speak from
experience, and defy contradiction.
But, why should a great country, if depending at all on its
gold yield, feel itself discouraged or brow-beaten by outsiders
at the difficulty surrounding its river washings ? These should,
in a -sound order of things, be considered as extras to the usual
bountiful provision of Nature in such matters. What should
be looked for, and what, it will be remembered, we spoke of
at the outset, is " hill diggings," deep sinkings. With respect
to these, it may be taken as something very much approaching
absolute truth, from the great, in many instances (with the tjien
means), insuperable obstacles in the former part enumerated—
want of communications, want of transport for provisions,
hence famine prices—ike country has not been hitherto properly
explored {prospected). It is not when provisions are from fifty
cents to one dollar per pound that men can stay in a spot suffi- FIRST VICTORIA DIRECTORY.
ciently long (even if, with the formidable physical obstacles presented by the country, a sufficient number can reach it) to
report credibly on its resources.
We here dismiss this subject, important as it is to outsiders,
and proceed to the dry region of figures.
In trades and professions Victoria possesses seven butchers
or meat salesmen, several fish and vegetable dealers, ten
bakers, thirteen dry or fancy goods stores, six tailors, thirteen
commission merchants, three chemists and druggists, three
architects, one ambrotypist, eight or ten carpenters or contractors, twenty grocers and provision dealers, four hair-cutting
saloons, three dress-makers, / about twenty-five hotels, inns,
saloons, and restaurants, six surveyors, three watchmakers,
four lumber dealers, eight or nine medical practitioners' of different classes, ten legal professors, of which four are barristers
at law, two banks, four blacksmiths, machinists, and ship-
smiths, three express offices, three newspapers (tri-weekly),
seven auctioneers and estate agents, seven dealers in tin and
hardware, three wholesale liquor dealers, six cigar and fruit
dealers, two ship-brokers, one patent roofing dealer, four lodging-houses, one tanner, one underwriter, one crockery and
glass dealer, one fur-dresser, two seed dealers, two breweries,
five milk-sellers, two saddlers, eight wharves.
With regard to religion and education, we have one Episcopalian Church, one Roman Catholic Church, one Wesleyan Mission, one Congregational Mission, one Nunnery—Sisters of St.
Ann—also school for females, one school under the auspices of
the Roman Catholic Bishop, one Private Educational Institute,
both sexes, E. Mallandaine, late J. Silversmith; one Young
Ladies' Seminary.
We call attention to our Official Directory, of which the list
has been furnished direct from the office of the Colonial Secretary.
We have an hospital, started originally by the Rev. E.
Cridge, of Christ Church, and now sadly overburdened with
debt, and several benevolent societies.
A Masonic Lodge is in course of formation ; the charter had PREFATORY REMARKS.

already arrived but has been returned to England for correction. An Odd Fellows' Association has been in existence for
one year.
'We have a Ladies' Benevolent Society, under the presidency
of Mrs. Col. Moody. A First Hebrew Victoria Benevolent
Society has been in existence some six months.
The Philharmonic Society of Victoria, under the conduct of
John Bayley, Esq., is among one of its oldest institutions, and
numbers in its ranks many of its celebrities, and of British
Columbia.
The ports of Victoria and Esquimault receive ten river and
sea-going steamers to supply the requirements of their increasing trade. Of these six are the property of the Colony, three
of the Hudson's Bay Company, and two built in Victoria by
navigation companies ; two ocean steamers (one British).
We carry on a lucrative trade in lumber, flour and fruits
with the ports on the Sound, and have bi-monthly communication with the Atlantic States and the home government.
To finish, we have in Victoria a FREE PORT. This immense advantage, coupled with its commanding situation for
an Eastern, an Indian, an Australian, and a California trade,
with the best available harbor in this portion of the Pacific,
backed by its unrivalled physical resources yet undeveloped, its
position opposite the terminus of the North American and
Pacific Railroad (which will shortly be an undoubted fact), placing it in the highway of travel for English wealth and enterprise, will, no doubt, ere long, place it in that prominent position we must all wish for it.
In conclusion, we have but to place our work, in its present
state, in the hands of an indulgent public, appealing with confidence to their support, in return for which corresponding
efforts will be made to place before them, at a future period, a
work more worthy of them and our town.
It is in present contemplation to amend and republish this
work twelve-monthly, or six-monthly if desirable. The wishes
and patronage of the public will be our guide. The publishing
of the present work, small as it is, has not been unattended §':

with expense, and for any remuneration, we are candid in
stating, we look forward to a second issue, when other resources of mutual advantage to ourselves and the public (of which
the latter, we trust, will not be slow to avail themselves) will
no doubt compensate the author, who will take as a favor the
being informed of any errors or omissions whatsoever in names,
descriptions, or residences.

BROAD    STREET,   VICTOEIA.
E. MALLANDAINE, ARCHITECT,
Of over three years' experience in tuition, son of the late Colonel
John Mallandaine, H. E. I. C, takes the opportunity of informing
Parents and Guardians and the general residents of Victoria, British
Columbia and California, that he has purchased the interest of the
above School of Mr. J. Silversmith. In assuming the sole direction,
and while calling attention to the great advantage of his central situation, Mr. E. M. would state that it is his intention to receive, as usual,
children of both sexes—and instruct in all the elementary branches of
an English education ; the girls, in addition, being taught Plain Needle-Work, by a competent teacher whose attendance E. M. has secured.
More advanced pupils will be instructed in regular courses of Penmanship, Declamation, Arithmetic, French, English and French Composition and Grammar, in the Elements of Euclid, Natural Philosophy,
Chemistry and Astronomy.
Private ^ssons in any of the above ; also in drawing, Mensuration,
Elementary Algebra, and the principles of Architecture and Design.
For terms and other particulars see Prospectus, which may be had on
application to E. MALLANDAINE.
N. B.—Evening School also, from 4 till 1 P. M., and 8 1-2 till 10, for the convenience of adults, or children engaged during the day.

OUR COMMERCE WITH CALIFORNIA.
"We need scarcely remark that a brisk trade connection between these colonies and California has been kept up since the
last couple of years. Some of the first houses of San Francisco have branch establishments in Victoria. The steamers
which ply regularly every week between San Francisco and Puget
Sound are always well freighted, besides other lines of sailing
crafts, carrying merchandise and produce of every known
description. In the Preface to this work are enumerated
the resources which this north-western continent furnishes as
a return for goods and wares shipped. California is now, and
ever will be, the only reliable mart from which these colonies
can be supplied with the necessaries and commodities. Its extensive commercial connections with the Atlantic States and
Europe, have placed San Francisco beyond competition on the
Pacific coast. Already the spirit for home manufactures are
being carried on, and where is there a city among the known
civilized nations, that has built itself up within the remarkable
short space of ten years—a State like California, or a City like
San Francisco—and every art, science, and profession, liberally
patronized ?
Although the early Frazer river excitement threatened to
engulf California, and strip it of its world-renowned gold glories; but happily the tide of commerce turned in its favor, and
we are informed that, more or less, every business house has
felt its beneficial effects.
1* fifT
\i
SAN" FRANCISCO DEPARTMENT.
We would say to the merchants of San Francisco, that these
colonies are also on the march of progress, that business is being carried on with system and reliability.
The legal institutions of these colonies are such, that it leaves
few chances for defrauding creditors. There is, and always
has been, from the earliest moment of Frazer River excitements, more confidence, between business men, than has been
the case with California. We have yet to record any heavy
failures by which men have lost their all.
The business community of California must see that Victoria
of Vancouver's Island, British Columbia, and Washington
Territory, United States, are valuable trade acquisitions to
California; their mineral, agricultural and other resources place
them among the first colonies on this continent. Victoria is a
pleasantly located city of several thousand inhabitants, on Victoria Harbor, and a free port ; is the principal mart for all the
Puget Sound towns and villages, of which there are quite a
number, besides having a naval station at-Esquimalt of five or
six men-of-war. Several steamers leave almost daily for New
Westminster, British Columbia, besides the steam and ship
lines of California, England and Australia, which are by no
means inconsiderable.
PACIFIC CLINICAL INFIRMARY—Surgeon, Professor Cooper.—We beg to call the attention of the public to the
gentleman above mentioned, Doctor Cooper, of San Francisco,
the celebrated Physician and Surgeon. We have had the
pleasure of a" most intimate acquaintance with this gentleman
for a number of years, and therefore are enabled to speak from
a personal knowledge of his professional merits.
A number of years ago, the Doctor laid the foundation of a
Medical Institute, to be conducted on a thorough and systematic plan, to possess every requisite for the convenience and
comfort of patients, and advice and prescriptions of the very
highest order. The exertion was crowned with the most complete success, and from a humble origin, the " Pacific Clinical
Infirmary Institute," of San Francisco, is at this time, widely
as well as deservedly celebrated.
The cures which this gentleman has performed, are some of auH
SAN FRANCISCO  DEPARTMENT. 3
the most difficult in the practice of medical surgery, and have
been deemed almost miraculous.
If the testimony of hundreds, who have been signally benefitted at his hands were of any avail, we could publish several
from persons of the highest position in society and of the
most unimpeachable veracity, but our limits forbid. And
when we mention that this gentleman, Dr. Cooper, is one of
the principal members and directors of the Pacific Medical
University, we feel assured that this fact alone, must convince
the minds of the most prejudiced that what we have stated can
be received with the most implicit confidence.
The Cooper Institute is pleasantly located on Mission Street,
and should there be any who, through misfortune or otherwise
should apply for medical advice and treatment in San Francisco, we cordially recommend them to Dr. Cooper, as a physician in whom they can place the utmost confidence.
We hereby append the Regular Steamship Lines of Pacific Mail Steamship Company, and California Steam
Navigation" Company. Both these lines have been established in the earliest infancy of California's existence, and require little comment from us as a recommendation.
PACIFIC MAIL STEAMSHIP COMPANY, for New
York and New Orleans Direct, via Panama Railroad—connecting with the Steamers of the United States

The author of this work, being desirous of recommending
some extensive establishment where many branches of mechanism and industry are carried on, and which professions are not
yet introduced into our Colonies, where orders and work are
manufactured and promptly filled and at moderate prices, having had a cursory view of the following departments of these
premises, we respectfully recommend the succeeding named
occupants:
Messrs. March Bros. & Co. will attend to all orders of merchants and others who are shipping merchandise to these Colonies, of all kinds of Boxes, acccording to any given size or
measure, at moderate prices and at the shortest notice.
Mr. S. Robb carries on a Steam Sawing and Turning establishment. Builders, contractors, architects, and others, can
have their work executed with dispatch, in all its forms and
shapes, at reduced prices.
Mr. H. C. Hudson manufactures a pure article of the celebrated California Mustard, too well known on this continent to
require comments ; put up in cases of all sizes, to suit purchasers, and at remarkably low prices.
i&i
.... .•"•..-.. •," v3 SAN FRANCISCO DEPARTMENT.
Brewers, liquor and spirit dealers and others will find, at the
above premises, Mr. F. Graciere, manufacturing Bungs of every
description for casks, barrels, pipes, etc. We recommend his
establishment to the public.
John Mallon & Co., Glass Cutters. This gentleman has
recently introduced his branch of Glass Cutting, heretofore
unknown on the Pacific coast. We have seen some of the most
beautiful specimens of artistic embellishments on glass we ever
beheld. Those building, or others requiring such work, will
do well to direct their orders forthwith to him; he will execute
them with dispatch and promptitude.
In all, these establishments are the most complete on this continent. All branches of manufactures are principally provided
with steam and the most approved modern machinery, by
which labor is reduced, hence the exceedingly low prices they
demand for work or goods. This establishment cannot be
superceded, in any of its appointments, on this coast.
MESSRS. EELLS & CO.—A most superb collection of
Carriages, Buggies, Wagons, and Sulkies, is found in their
immense warehouse, Front Street, corner of Pine, made of the
best material and highly finished in the most modern patterns."
Orders sent to them from these colonies will meet with prompt
fulfillment.
H^HT* The commercial community of these colonies will be
glad to perceive that Messrs. McLane & Fowler, agents for the
principal Insurance Institutions of the U. S., will take risks
and issue policies for Marine Insurance, at a moderate per cent-

Mr. J. J. LECOUNT, whose advertisement appears on the
back cover of this work, has the largest and most complete stock of Books, Papers, Materials, Charts, Globes, Fancy
Articles, etc., on the Pacific coast. He is favorably known for
being a strict business man, and the most moderate in his terms.
He solicits orders from the trade, and we heartily recommend
him.
SILVERWARE MANUFACTORY.—We call attention
to the advertisement elsewhere of Mr. W. K. Vanderslice.
This gentleman has recently established himself on Washington Street, San Francisco, where he has exhibited to us, and
manufactured by him of pure coin, some of the finest and
most recherche" specimens of mechanical art we ever beheld;
pitchers, waiters, cups, spoons, knives and forks, and an endless
number of other utensils. Jewelers and dealers generally,
should bear this in mind that they need not send to New York
for articles in his line, but should send their orders direct to
him ; his terms are very reasonable.
MESSRS. RASCHE & SON, Dealers in Musical Instruments, Sheet Music, Strings, etc. This house can fill any orders
at the lowest market rates. We are under many obligations to
Mr. Henry Rasche, the author of the newly written operetta,
entitled the | New Year among the Young Folk," for an invitation to the first performance thereof. It is replete with beautiful choruses, ballads, duetts, etc., neatly arranged for piano
and string instruments, and reflects great credit uoon this most
O ' Ox
promising young author.
GROVER & BAKER'S SEWING MACHINES.—This
world-renowned and pioneer Sewing Machine Establishment,
have on hand machines which for speed, beauty, and compactness, cannot be superceded; over 35,000 are now in use. The
many improvements which this firm have effected, place their
machine far beyond all others. .We are under obligation
to Mrs. Rogers, who has kindly exhibited to us specimens of
workmanship executed by these machines, also the " modus
operandi" for working them. The simplicity, the great desideratum of labor, certainly entitle Messrs. Grover & Baker, to
the greatest fame.    No family should be without one. m

UNION" IRON WORKS.—Mr. Peter Donahue, the proprietor, commenced operations in 1849. These works are the
most extensive in the city, covering an area of seven full sized
water lots. The buildings are of the most substantial kind, all
of brick; consisting of foundry, 50 by 60 feet; one» machine
shop is 40 by 80 feet, and four stories high; one machine shop,
blacksmiths' and boiler shop has just been completed, 46 by
160 feet. Within these buildings are the best tools to be found
in the State, consisting of Wentworth's massive drilling and
slotting machines, compound planers, one of Z. Coffin's superior lathes, which swings eight feet, and with the pit lathe can
turn a pullv 22 feet diameter; the length of the lathe is 30
feet. One of Nasmyth's steam hammers is situated in the center of the smith's shop. In addition to the tools enumerated
above, are lathes, planers, drills and a large riveting machine.
The first castings made in this State was at this foundry.   The
<—> *J
contract for the boilers and engines of the new side wheel
steamer Saginaw was awarded by the Hon. Secretary of the
O J J
Navy to Mr.  Donahue, being the first contract for a government steamer on the Pacific coast.

elsewhere, we are informed, has the largest and most complete
assortment of every known Seed. Our agriculturists and
others can send their orders direct to his agent at Victoria.

These gentlemen are celebrated on this coast, for making the

that this line is the oldest and most extensive one, and whose
Packets leave almost weekly, at reduced rates of Freight or

class vessels. Those shipping Goods and Merchandise will do
well to send through them.
CALIFORNIA PIONEER BROOM MANUFACTORY.

this establishment to our merchants and traders in these Colonies. Send them your orders direct, and they will be
promptly and faithfully executed.

coast. They have been long and favorably known here. They
have also been the recipients of first premiums from the several Institutes and Fairs. They ask but a small profit over
eastern prices, and solicit orders from the dealers of these Colonies, whom we recommend to send direct to them, for articles
in their line.

their advertisement elsewhere.

This extraordinary lubricating Compound is produced by a
chemical combination of suitable oily substances, purified by
distillation, and carefully freed from the resinous or pitchy
matter, which attaches to all Oils more or less, in their unrefined or natural state.
In operation, the patent greese works free from comb or gum,
keeping the heaviest bearings in a soft oily state to the last, and
as its consistency is not altered by exposure to the hottest sun
or coldest frost, (its liquifying point being 200 degrees,) it follows that on axles which have a tendency to become hot, from
too heavy abrasion, &c, the Anti-friction will adhere to, and
keep them cool, when other substances would run off and become dry, thus the evil known as
BiKHiftDliiXI   W&W    W9^0(3)OS)lift£$
is, by its use, effectually prevented.
The proprietors will guarantee one application of their Patent Greese to carry the heaviest loaded teams from 300 to 500
miles, without requiring to be re-greased on the road.

BUSINESS   NOTICES.
THE WORLD RENOWNED STOYES.—Messrs. Koh-
ler & Bros., we are happy to say, have exhibited to us their
late improvements in Stoves, of their own manufacture, which
surpass all others either in beauty, fuel-saving, or other advantages. We are compelled to recommend this establishment,
since every article is made from the best material, and of the
latest style and improvements. We understand, also, that their
charges for the same are cheaper than those of other dealers.
The trade should send their orders direct to them, as they will
execute commissions promptly. They can defy the world to produce a better Cooking or Parlor Stove.    See their card elsewhere.
METROPOLITAN HOTEL.—We call attention to the
advertisement elsewhere, of the Metropolitan Hotel. The
traveling community as well as permanent residents cannot be
better accommodated than at this favorite resort. The rooms
are spacious, airy, and neatly furnished, and the proprietors
are well established in the reputation that they furnish their
culinary department with the best the market affords. The
Hotel is most eligibly situated near the principal business district.
WM. SCHMOLZ, Esq.—On the back cover of this work
will be seen the card of this gentleman. We have known him
long since, on this coast, for making and keeping the best Instruments for Surveyors and Engineers. He is the author of
a very concise and useful work recently published by him.
He has also invented many new Instruments for Surveying and
Engineering. He does repairing at moderate prices, and warrants his work. Our Surveyors should bear this in mind, send
to him direct for anything they may want, and we are satisfied
they will not only be suited but pleased. mm
SAN FRANCISCO DEPARTMENT.
47
SAN FRANCISCO COLLEGE.—This celebrated Institute
has been established since the year 1855, and is under the supervision of the Rev. J. Chittenden, late of Cambridge and
London Universities. Parents and guardians will look in vain
for a better School where children of all ages and sexes can receive a liberal education. The higher branches of Mathematics,
Philosophy, Modern and Ancient Languages and Music, are
successfully taught by eminent Professors. The terms, we find,
are very reasonable. The Institute is most pleasantly situated
on Bush street, near Taylor, and is provided with Gymnastics
and Sport or Play grounds.
Messrs. BALDWIN & JOSEPHI.—Jewelers and Watchmakers, and others in that trade, will find it greatly to their
advantage to send their orders direct to this the oldest estab-
lished House on the Pacific. The best and cheapest Home and
Foreign Manufactured Jewelry, Diamonds, Watches, etc., can
at all times be found here. We have been shown by the proprietors one of the costliest and most superb selections of American made Watches, for which this Firm are the Sole Agents
on this Coast. Their Manufactory for making the best Jewelry
is widely and favorably known, having a Lapidary and an
Enameling Furnace attached thereto. We cannot recommend
a better House.
ISIF3 A most complete stock of Crockery and Glassware,
Lamps, Plated and China Ware, will be found at Messrs.
Haynes & Lawton, Sansome Street. -We can recommend no
house on the Pacific coast, where the trade could be better
suited, or where orders could be executed at shorter notice,
cheaper rates, or with better articles.
Mr. SAM'L ADAMS keeps constantly on hand an excellent article of Santa Cruz Lime. Builders, architects and contractors should send their orders direct to him. See his advertisement elsewhere.
Messrs. J. D. ARTHUR & SON, whose card appears elsewhere in this work, keep on hand the largest and most complete stock of Agricultural Implements on this coast, which
they offer at reduced prices.
. K!

SAN FRANCISCO DEPARTMENT.
pill We call especial attention to the advertisement elsewhere of Messrs. Cameron, Whittier & Co., who have the most
complete stock of Paints, Oils, Glass, and Painter's utensils of
the best, cheapest and most desirable quality on this coast.
The trade should send their orders direct to them. They will
fill orders promptly, and at the lowest market prices.
Messrs. THURNAUER & ZINN, whose advertisement
appears in this work, keep, at this time, and receive from
Europe and the Atlantic States, one of the most select and
superb stocks of Willow Ware we ever beheld.
lS|iPp Those visiting California, who may be suffering from
bad teeth, or wish dental operations performed, should by all
means consult Dr. Burbank. We know him personally to
be one of the best and most skillful Surgical Dentists.
Messrs. HUCKS & LAMBERT.—We are pleased to recommend this Firm for manufacturing an unsurpassed article of
Axle Grease. We were shown the mysteries of the modus
operandi, by Mr. Hucks, who, by the way, is an excellent
chemist—from, all we can learn this article stands without a
rival. The firing of wheels need not be feared, while their
Grease is used.
"COMMERCIAL STEAM PRINTING OFFICE."—We
cannot more appropriately conclude our remarks on the various business enterprises of San Francisco, than by calling the
attention of our readers to this extensive Printing Establishment, the largest and most complete in all its departments, on
the Pacific Coast. To the gentlemanly proprietors, Messrs.
Valentine & Co., we are indebted for many kind attentions
shown us during the progress of this work through the press.
The neat and artistic appearance of these pages is principally
due to their taste and judgment. Those of our patrons in want
of anything in the printing line, from an address card to a mammoth poster, cannot do' better than to call at No. 129 Sansome
Street, near Washington, where they will be sure of being
suited, both as regards quality and price. Orders from the
Interior, or from these Colonies, will receive prompt attention. SAN FRANCISCO DEPARTMENT
Mr. A. KOHLER carries on three of the most extensive
Musical Instruments, Toy and Fancy Goods Establishments on
this Coast. He solicits orders from Dealers, which, we are
satisfied, he can fill at very reasonable prices.
llil? We call attention to the advertisement of Messrs.
FISH & CO., who are the favorably known proprietors of the
Black Hawk Livery and Sale Stables. Those wishing a good
horse should not fail to call on them. We know of no better
place where they can be suited.
Mr. WIGMORE, on California cor. Leidesdorff Street, manu-
actures, at reasonable prices and of the best materials, Office
Furniture, Show Cases, Desks, Bureaus, Law and Library
Cases, etc. Those requiring articles of this kind should send
their orders direct to his establishment.
Mr. GEO. STEAD, who is now making extensive arrangements in England and elsewhere for procuring the best Saws,
Files, etc., and who has the best stock now on hand on this
Coast, respectfully calls attention to his advertisement in this
book; page 82, (Victoria Department).
Messrs. GRAY & HERWIG, Music Dealers, are at all
times receiving the best Strings, and the latest Publications
of Music.    They have removed recently to Dr. Rab£s Build

best quality.
J.  T_ J"03STES7 Agent.
Messrs. SCHAEFFER & SUTLIFF.— We take pleasure
in recommending this extensive Cigar Manufacturing and Tobacco Warehouse, to the trade and consumers. We have
tried and tasted their home manufactured Cigars, and find them
excellent; indeed, there is no difference between the best imported and their home made article, either in flavor or taste—j
and yet a saving of 50 per cent, is offered to purchasers. See
their advertisement, page 81 Yictoria Department. INDEX TO VICTORIA DEPARTMENT.
