INDEX TO THE ADVERTISEMENTS

ON THE FOLLOWING PAGES.



Public attention is solicited to the Advertising Department, which has been
arranged with much care — displaying at a glance the good taste of the Printers,
and impressing upon the stranger and townsman the enterprise of the business
men of the city. To the Directory itself it adds an air of business, and gives it
a better character as a book of reference. By turning to the columns below,
you will easily find the notices of those who have adopted this course to give
their business publicity. This Department will be found of great value to those
who are purchasing goods.

The business of Boston is rapidly increasing, and the causes are various which
operate so favorably upon it. The increase of its population, the activity and
industry of its inhabitants, its excellent advantages for commercial operations,
and its central location for inland trade, have done much to give it the power and
influence which it possesses. In admiring the operating causes which have led
to this happy result, we must not forget that the Press has been a mighty engine
in building up the present prosperous state of trade. The vast clothing business
now carried on here, owes its great prosperity to the influence of the Press, and
the wholesale business done a few years since was nothing in comparison to what
it is now. The trade knows no bounds, and its prime mover is Advertising.
We beheve the poAver of the Press, as an incentive to trade, is yet in its infancy.

DAVID PROUTY & CO.

Manufacturers and Wholesale and Ketail Dealers of Prodty & Meaes's CELE-
BRATED CENTRE DRAFT, Side Hill, Self Sharpening and Sub SoU Ploughs,

es, and other Agricul-
tural Implements ; and
to our already large and
extensive stock, we are
constantly adding many
We have also a large assortment of Flower, Gar-
den, Grass, and Field Seeds, Fruit and Ornamental Trees, Shrubs, &c.

We have also, in connection, a large and extensive assortment of Cooking, Parlor, and
Of&ce Stoves ; Mott's Farmers' Portable Agricultural Cauldron ;
Mott's Iron Heaters, for Laundries and Public Houses ; the Ma-
deria Coal Air-tight Parlor Stove, improved for 1849 ; Pkouty
& Mears's IMPROVED HOT AIR VENTILATING PORT-
ABLE FURNACES. These furnaces are made upon an entirely
new plan ; and such is their internal arrangement, that the cold air
is introduced, heated and discharged into the rooms
in a mild agreeable and healthy state, free from all
unpleasant smells and gases, not coming in con-
tact — as is usually the case — with any red-hot iron,
whereby the oxygen is destroyed, and the air ren-
dered poisonous. D. P. & Co. are also proprietors
of Hanks' Improved Hot- Air Ventilating Furnace
for warming public & private buildings of all kinds.
The peculiar improvement and operation of this «»<i=i" etoye.
apparatus is, that the heat as its temperature is reduced, passes down into pipes of a still
lower temperature, and at the lowest passes off into the chimney. The air to be warmed





Prouty & Mears* Portable Furn&ce.



is brought Jirst in contact with

the pipes and conductors of the ,i_^^

lowest temperature, and as it be- |J




ally and regularly increasing,
until at the highest it passes off
into conductors leading to the
rooms. Thus the current of heat
I is directly contrary to the cur-
rent of air passingin to the apart-



comes warm and rises, is brought |
in contact with, and rises among
pipes of a temperature continu-
ments. This Furnace being but about four feet in height is pecuHarly adapted to low cellars,
at the same time affording opportunity for an unusual elevation of hot-air conductors imme-
diately after leaving the brick work, whereby we obtain a greater amount of heat than can
be obtained by any other Furnace with the same amount of fuel.

Particular attention given to Heating and Ventilating Buildings. The public are respectfully invited
to call and examine the above, at our Warerooms, Nos. 19, 20 &. 22 N. MARKET ST., BOSTON.

z3 This strictly scientific invention has been
thoroughly tested the past four years. Sev-
eral hundreds have been put up in public and
private buildings, and received the approval of
,the learned and scientific. The Committees of
the State School, at Westboro', and Atheneum,
at Boston, after a thorough examination of all
other furnaces in the market, adopted this as
the only one, which, from its extensive perpen-
dicular surface and peculiar construction, can
be enjoyed the luxury of the diffusion of a
pure summer atmosphere, of uniform temper-
ature, during all the changes of our winter
climate. A temperature which the most
delicate constitutions will find easy of respira-
tion. It is remarkable that the same appara-
tus which thus produces an agreeable summer
temperature in winter, may be used with
equal safety and ease to modify the heat of
summer, as the same channels which diffuse
