By the first of August business began to revive, and it has been steadily increasing, till we now
find our streets crowded to overflowing Our merchants, our mechanics, and manufacturers of all
kinds have al! the business they can possibly do. Let those who love to work, and who know how
to do it, come to Chicago. There is not a spot in the wide world where honest industry is so sure
of a competence we might say, a fortune. Our railroads are pouring an immense flood of trade
and travel into the city, and Chicago is making rapid progress in wealth, population and substantial
improvement. Our beet informed men are satisfied that the coining new year will find at least
eighty thousand people in Chicago, and by another year from that time the footings will be very
handsomely beyond a hundred thousand.

We owe an apology to our friends for delaying this edition to so late a day in the season. The
truth is, our job office has been so crowded with work that it was impossible to get anything done
for ourselves. Our presses now run by steam, and we have otherwise largely increased our facilities
to meet the wants of our growing city. The public may rest assured that no effort shall be spared
by the Editors and Proprietors of the Press to advance the interests and secure the commercial su-
premacy of the Empire City of the Mississippi valley.

The rapid growth of CHICAGO, and the consequent enhancement of REAL ESTATE in and about it,
have made necessary the establishment of a convenient, systematic and reliable



dfc?

From actual acquaintance with City and Country Real Estate in and about Chicago, (Mr. REES hav-
ing been engaged in the actual survey of almost the whole of the City, from 1835 to the present,
and of all the lands surrounding it,) otfer to the public generally inducements rarely to be met with
in purchasing and selling Real Estate.

They have the privilege of referring to the above name gentlemen in various parts of the United
States, and propose, in accordance with their card above, to



PAY TAXES ON LANDS AND CITY LOTS,

EXAMINE AND REPORT UPON THE VALUE AND QUALITY OF LANDS AND LOTS*
And, in fine, do everything connected with a legitimate REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE.

PROGRESS OF

WESTERN JOURNALISM.

THE CHICAGO DEMOCRATIC PRESS

ESTABLISHMENT.



From the Daily Press of August 23, 1854.

The newspaper has become the great living
voice of the present, through which it gives ut-
terance to its wants, its opinions, its commenda-
tions and censures, its sorrows and its joys, its
triumphs and defeats, its fears and its aspirations.
It is the medium through which are configured
within the field of vision all things both distant
and near in point of space; and it is the magical
mirror in which the past is daily pictured, the
present daguerreotyped, and the future presented
in long-drawn perspective. Weak and compara-
tively insignificant in its beginning, it has grown
to be the controlling power in the nation. It is,
in fact, the universal law-giver of the country,
pushing its power into every domain of human
life into its politics, its religions, its social and
domestic affairs, its public and private economies,
its arts, its sciences, its professions, and its
trades ruling as the competent and rightful
monarch of all. Such is the newspaper in the
