It is a city of over 20,000 inhabitants — the political, commercial, and social metropolis of the State--well laid out, beautifully shaded, studded with little gardens — has several factories, good hotels, a multiplicity of churches, a theatre, five daily papers, a great number of aristocratic streets, with large, fashionable, but not sumptuous residences; and
