the State, The present warden is Mr. John Heron, the visi-
ters are Messrs. James Carroll, George Williams, Hubert Ham-
ilton, John Hillen and William Pinkney.

Law Buildings.—An extensive rane, occupied by the gentle-
men of the bar as offices, &c. They are on the site of the former
Athenseum, destroyed by fire in 1834.

Lazaretto and quarantine grounds.—This is a large building,
with rather a sombre aspect, but answers the purpose for which
it was intended; viz. to prevent the introduction of contagious
diseases into the city. An ordinance requires that "all vessels
arriving from beyond sea, between the last of April and the first
of November be detained at the quarantine grounds, if the health
officers think necessary." The Lazaretto is on the point of land
at the entrance of the harbour, immediately opposite to Fort

Market Houses.—The principal market house in Baltimore is
the Centre or Marsh Market, situated between Baltimore and
Water streets, one square W. of Jones's Falls. It consists of two
buildings of suitable dimensions. 2d. Lexington Market is the
next in importance, its location is in Lexington street, between
Eutaw and Green streets. 3d. The next is the Hanover Market,
at the corner of Hanover and Camden streets. This building is
square, the only one thus shaped in the city. 4th. Then comes
the Fell's Point Market, in Market street, between Alice Anna
ond Thames streets. 5th. The Bel Air Market, in Forrest street,
between Gay and Low streets. 6th. The Richmond Market, al
the intersection of North Howard and Richmond streets. These
markets are generally well supplied with fruit, vegetables, meal
and poultry. The Fish Market is in Second .street, near the
Falls. The Horse Market is held in Swan street, near the Cen-
tre Market House. The market days are as follow. On Mon-
days and Thursdays at Hanover; on Tuesdays and Fridays A.
M. at Lexington and Fell's Point Market; P. M. of the same
days at Bel Air Market; on Wednesdays and Saturdays, at the
Centre, Fish and Horse Markets; on Saturday nights at Centre,
Lexington, Hanover and Fell's Point. For the names of the
clerks and their salaries, see the preceding chapter.

Masonic Hail.—The use of which is expressed in the name.
is a splendid edifice in Sr. Paul's street, corner of Court House
Lane. It fronts forty-two feet on the former and is one hundred
feet in depth. The cost was $35,000. See Benevolent Societies
in chapter x.
