Interesting Celebration

Spirit of the Times Batavia, Genesee County, New York State November 16-1827

. --On Thursday last, the "Buffalo Hydraulick Company" celebrated the partial completion of their works, by an entertainment to their friends & the citizens of the county generally. A very respectable assemblage did honour to the treat, which consisted of an OX, roasted whole, with proper trimmings, and an abundance of whiskey and cider, served in true republican style. The ceremonies of the day were accompanied by the discharge of cannon, and success to the "Buffalo Hydraulick Company" was drunk with a hearty good will and overflowing bumpers. A saw-mill erected by the company, was put in operation on the occasion. From the test, which this fact afforded, and from the evidence of men of science and experience, no doubt remains of the complete success of the company, in securing to this village an ample water power for all hydraulick purposes that our wants require. This has long been a desideratum, & the gentlemen whose enterprise has enabled them to accomplish so important an object to the prosperity of our village, deserve more than empty thanks, and which they cannot fail eventually to realize. The canal which leads the water into the village, is nearly four miles in length, and is sufficiently capacious to hold the waters of the different branches of Buffalo creek united. It terminates in the eastern part of the village, and when completed will cost about $15,000. -'Buffalo Journal' *
