CHURCHES.
There are ten organized churches and the same number of church edifices in this city These church edifices, with the parsonages and grounds upon which they stand, are valued at about $100,000
NEWSPAPERS.
Two ably conducted weekly papers are exponents of the principles of the two political parties of the city and county. The Democratic Expounder, now edited by Samuel S. Lacey, Esq., issued its first number (then called the Calhoun County Patriot), December 3d, 1836. The Statesman, now edited by Morgan Bates, Esq., issued its first number (then called the Marshall Times), in 1837. Both papers were then Democratic, or Republican, as the party was then called. The career of the Times was short, and the press was purchased by some gentlemen of Whig proclivities, and has since been the organ of that party.
WATER WORKS.
The city is justly proud of her artesian wells, numbering twenty-two, and located in all parts of the city. The supply of water is perfectly inexhaustible. The steamer makes but little perceptible impression upon the elevation of water in the wells, though driven to its utmost capacity for hours. The fire department have one steamer and two hand engines, and a hook and ladder company with all the usual apparatus. Gas is furnished to the city by an incorporated company, and is also made and used by private parties.
