HUDSON, Columbia County.


     Columbia county formed April 4, 1786.  Hudson lies upon the east bank of the river by that name, 115 miles from New York and 29 from Albany.  The manufactures are extensive, consisting principally of iron.  Hudson was incorporated as a city in 1785.  Population about 10,000.  Upon the summit of a bluff overlooking the river, a public square and a broad street, or promenade, have been laid out and ornamented with trees and shrubbery.  Fine views are here afforded of the city, the river, and of the country on the opposite shore, with the Catskill Mountains in the background.  The Hudson and Boston railway extends from here to West Stockbridge in Mass., connecting at Chatham with the Western railway (Mass.), and at West Stockbridge with the Housatonic railway.  From Athens, on the opposite side of the river, a railway has recently been completed to Schenectady, connecting with the New York Central railway, principally for the conveyance of freight, in connection with river navigation to and from the West.  There are 4 academies and colleges, 2 libraries, 10 churches, 5 newspapers, 4 banks, a gas light company, &c., &c.
