About the organization of this material

Each abstract begins with a "reference line," such as: 16 - CGCR July 31:2/3,4.
This is the code which the Annals staff used to identify the following information:

16 -- the number assigned to this abstract
CGCR -- the newspaper it was taken from (here, the Register)
July 31 -- the month and day it appeared in the paper
2/3,4 -- page 2, columns 3 and 4

An ed placed between the date and the page/column information (i.e. July 31; ed:1,2) means that the abstract is from an editorial. If adv appears in that location, it indicates that the abstract is from an advertisement.

For more information, please see the Introductory Materials from the Annals, and select the desired year and publication from the menu.

[note: for the digital edition, "abstract" has been included at the beginning of each reference line, and the name of the newspaper has been spelled out in the first reference line of each page.]

The material which follows was scanned from the original printed Annals, proof-read and corrected to replicate the original as closely as possible.

Abstract 22 - H[erald] Jan. 25; ed:3/3

The New York legislature convened in Albany on Jan. 4. The speech of Governor Clinton at the opening of the session gives a flattering view of the progress of internal improvements in that state. It is reported that in less than two years and five months, 120 miles of artificial navigation have been finished. We shall next week publish that part of the speech relating to the Western canal which is a little less interesting to this part of Ohio than to the enterprising state engaged in this stupendous undertaking.

(From Annals of Cleveland - 1818-1935, Volume III (1820), page 30. Cleveland: Cleveland WPA. 1937.)
