James B. Mathews recently noted down some facts of our city for the Council, from which we draw the following:

--Buildings within the corporation, exclusive of stables and other outhouses - of brick, 279; of wood, 602.  Total, 881.
--Buildings of one story, 315; of two, three and four stories, 566.
--Dwelling houses, 720
--Stores and Warehouses, 86
--Churches, 14
--College and Public School Buildings, 8
--Hotels, 10
--Banks, 2
--Court House, Jail and Public Offices, 3
--Manufactories, 23
--Flouring Mills, 2, with 10 pairs of burrs
--Tanneries, 4, one with capacity for 100 hides per day
--Chair and Furniture Factory, 1
--Foundries and Machine Shops, 2, for stoves, steam engines, oil tools
--Oil Refineries, 2 
--Bakeries, 4, one with capacity to work fifty barrels of flour daily
