TO THE PUBLIC.
The Editor tenders his thanks to those Citizens who
have patronized this Directory, and assures them that
every exertion has been made to render it complete.
The Directory commences with the "Annual Jldver-
titer" and the arrangement of the names is very much
improved. The reader is requested to make himself ac-
quainted with "Directions to the Reader" as soon as pos-
sible, as it will make every part clearly understood. A
complete list of streets, &c. and public places follow the
The additional matter, after the names, consists of the
Constitutions of the United States and Pennsylvania —
Members of Congress — Government of the United States
and Pennsylvania — Ministers and Consuls — Post Office
Establishment — Courts of the United States and Pennsyl-
vania — and a List of Public Institutions and Societies,
alphabetically arranged, besides a variety of other useful
information, particularized in the "List of Contents"
Notwithstanding*all the attention given to this Direc-
tory, some errors no doubt exist; for which the clemency
of the public is solicited. Every well informed person
must be impressed with the impossibility of blinking for-
ward a work of this kind entirely free of errors. Tha
taking of the names was commenced in August, 18£2, and
it is hoped no person who may have changed his residence
since that date, without giving notice thereof to the Edi-
tor, will censure him, as communications appeared in dif-
ferent Newspapers requesting such to send him their ad-
dresses for correction, the frequency of removals render-
ing it impossible for the Editor, without such notice, to
make a correct return.
The mammoth task of taking all the names of families
and persons in business, residing in the City and Liberties
of Philadelphia, requires a deal of perseverance and inge-
nuity to obtain the necessary information ; as some per-
sons entirely refuse to answer our queries, others must be
IV TO THE PUBLIC.
waited upon at some suitable hour, some houses are closed,
many surnames of different orthography sounding alike,
and the information obtained being often vague and incor-
rect. Many cannot spell their names ; some cannot speak
English ; a number are so fearful of being found that they
give wrong names, thinking us collectors of taxes or mili-
tia fines, while others, in reply to our questions, tell us to
"find out by our learning-." Much of the information to
be had from servants only, with other difficulties, to say
nothing of the expense before the receipt of a dollar on
account of the book. Some persons complain of the price,
but when they are informed that the price of the New
York Directory, containing much less matter, is considera-
bly higher, it is hoped there will be no further complaint —
to those who think we are not paid enough we tender our
If no Directory was published for two years, there
would be no calculating the value of time lost in searching
out the residence of individuals, which we hope will be
obviated by the present publication.
If the Editor is sufficiently encouraged, he will repeat
the publication of the Directory annually; and as by expe-
rience, it is now reduced to a certainty, Philadelphia can-
not support a competition in this business, he thinks it not
unreasonable respectfully to solicit his fellow citizens for
their undivided patronage so long as he gives satisfaction,
which he will endeavour to do. He makes this seemingly
unreasonable request, as a divided patronage would pro-
bably oblige him to relinquish his intention to continue
The Editor also begs leave to apologise for the late ap-
pearance of the Directory for the present year, arising
from circumstances not within his control; he intends
that it shall in future appear in January of each year.

Warranted genuine and unadulterated as originally and
first imported by Slater Sf Co. to Philadelphia, in 1818.
The Roman Cement is impenetrable to Water, or any mois-
ture, and is decidedly the best article hitherto discovered for the
composition of Stucco, and the embellishment of the exterior of
Buildings, as it not only will resist the weather in the most ex-
posed situations, but become as hard, handsome, and durable as
Walls in damp situations, and arches of vaults covered with this
Cement, will effectually exclude Water, or any other moisture.
For the building- of Tanks, Cisterns, Vats, &c. &c. it is unequalled,
and is an admirable composition, used as Mortar, in setting Brick
or Stone Work in any aquatic erection, which it unites into one
solid mass, and withstands the action of the sea.
Birections for using the Cement in Brick or Stone Work.
Mix it with water to the consistency of thick paste, and use it
immediately, the Bricks or Stones being previously well soaked in
water ; mix no more at a time than can be used in fifteen minutes,
as, after it has once set, it will be unfit for use again. A rod o:
brick work will require about 68 bushels.
Well rake out the jeints of the walls, and having made them i s
wet as you can, lay on the Stucco, prepared of equal parts of Ct -
ment and clean sharp River Sand, wetted to the consistency <. '
mortar, observing to lay on the whole coat at once, at least three
quarters of an inch thick, and to hand- float it to a surface as ex-
peditiously as possible, as much working the Cement injures its
hardening quality. A yard surface of Stuccoing will require
about three quarters of a bushel of Cement. Joints may be drawn
on the Stucco, in imitation of regular Masonry, and when dry,
may be coloured with a wash prepared as follows": — In each gallon
of water, dissolve four ounces of green Copperas, adding as much
fresh Lime and Cement as will produce the colour required ; or a
richer colour may be obtained, by using Umber and Ochre instead
of Cement, adding a small proportion of Linseed Oil and Tar,
which readily unites with water by means of the lime.
XZP Be careful not to Stucco new work till the building is
Equal quantities of Cement and clean rough Sand, mixed as
above directed for Stuccoing, and being cast in convenient wood
moulds, will form a very beautiful and durable Artificial Stone, for
Window Sills, Coping, Stringing, Courses, Imposts, Key Stones,
and Profile Chimney pieces. The Cement is of great use for
pointing Tiles, setting Chimney pots, &c. A course of Bricks
being laid in Cement, and Stuccoed over, will form a very hard
The Cement should be kept from air or damp, and exposed as
little as possible in its manufactured state; it is carefully packed in
sound Casks, containing five bushels each, and a constant supply
will regularly be kept on sale, by the single Cask or larger quan-
tity, by A. Slater, agent to the manufacturers, No. 306, Arch

This Museum is the oldest and largest esta-
blishment in the United States, and contains im-
mense collections from the Animal and Mineral
kingdoms of nature, from all parts of the world.
These are all beautifully arranged so as to enable
the visitor to study the objects with the greatest
advantage. The collection of Implements and
Ornaments of our Aboriginal tribes is very ex-
tensive and interesting, and the Cabinet of Anti-
quities, and Artificial Curios ties is not less wor-
thy of attention. In addition to the ordinary at-
tractions of a Museum, there is in this a very large
collection of the Portraits of American Statesmen
and Warriors of the Revolution, and of the most
distinguished scientific men of Europe and Ame-
The Proprietor, C. W. Peale, desirous of se-
curing the Museum permanently in this city, ob-
tained an act of Incorporation, by which the sta-
bility of the Institution is insured, while, by the di-
vision of the property into 500 shares, of a nomi-
nal value, he is enabled to do every justice to his
family. The act of Incorporation secures the use
of the Museum in perpetuity to the city, and au-
thorizes the Stockholders to appoint annually five
trustees, who meet quarterly to regulate the busi-
ness of the Institution, and declare the dividends
to be made of the net profit. Nothing can be
removed from the Institution under a penalty and
forfeiture of double the value of the thing re-
moved; hence donations may be made, with a
certainty on the part of the donors, that the arti-
cles placed in the Museum will always remain for
the public good.
