towns and villages on the Hudson. The streets,
running north and south, converge together at
the north end of the city, and are crossed at right
angles by those running east and west. The
buildings are principally built of brick, and are
shaded by rows of trees on each side of streets,
which are preserved remarkably clean, by addi-
tions of slate and gravel, instead of pavements.
The city contains three banks, seven churches, a
court house, jail and market. The Episcopal
church is a superb specimen of Gothic architec-
ture, probably not exceeded in the United States.

erected at the expense of the corporation, for the
accommodation of the female seminary incorpo-
rated at this place.
