THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
(Located corner William and Cedar streets.) This institution, first chartered in 1770, under the reign of George the Third, King of England, was confirmed and amended by act of the Legislature of the State of New York, April 13,
“ The advantages to the public arising from the establishment of this body are very obvious. To the commercial community, especially, the benefits are large, and every year these results are becoming greater. There is one point, however, which the Chamber have overlooked, one which claims their especial attention, viz., an annual report upon the Commerce of the City and of the State. The Chamber of Commerce is not merely a City institution; it was chartered as a State Chamber of Commerce,' and as such, it becomes, to a certain extent, an exponent of the the year.
commerce of the Empire State, and should furnish to our citizens, far and wide, an able and comprehensive resumé of the commercial operations of
"The Chamber of Commerce is known to comprise a large number of our most influential and well-informed merchants. It includes public-spirited men, educated and intelligent, engaged in the various branches of traule and manufactures. But to the members of that body, and to the merchants at large, the Commerce of New York is a sealed book. We at present have no annual exhibit of its details or of its aggregates, beyond those disjointed tabular statements contained in the Treasury Reports to Congress, or in the weekly Price Current of the City. These subjects are, however, of such vast importance, not merely to our City and State, but to the country at large, that they deserve to be condensed into a volume or pamphlet annually, and thus brought clearly to the view of all business men. There is no better nor more appropriate medium for the dissemination of such information than the New York Chamber of Commerce. A · Library of Reference is about being established, which will add much to the usefulness of this institution.'
