-- 1831 - 1840

In this decade the dentists appear, but merely as specialists who can stay but a short time. The portrait painter also appears in the same way.  Daguerre had not yet been heard of. Pianos become an article of merchandise worth advertising and there is one instructor in flute playing.

The circus and menagerie appear a few times to relieve the monotony, but there is only one advertisement for a fugitive slave. Schemes for turnpikes are very numerous - to Chillicothe, to Watertown, to Zanesville, to Newport, &c.

In the latter part of this decade many lotteries are advertised and other grand schemes of speculation.
