gion affords for the geological department
f the Lyceum will always renter it the
most prominent of its stuilies, and the in-,
veetioations connected with their re
searches, will doubtless give rise to prac

We again repeat our satisfaction at being
assured of its prosperity, and have no fears,
while under the auspices of its present di•

Canada.—The aril% ity of Sir John Col
borne, in promptly de( Faring martial law
and permuting the banks to suspend specie
payments, has effectually checked all in
surreclionary Iflevernenta in the Lower
province. 'I he "patriots'' appear to be
without head or organization, and the de
luded creatures have fallen like chaff be
fore the English regulars.
In Upper Canada, aninvaiiion has been
attempted at Prescott.G4n. Birge is

of the U. S. Army is dome his best to

They are completely hemnUid ‘'in by the
regulars and will doubtless tip cut off to a
man. Martial law is summarily executed
on all prisoners. ' •
We do not conceive any accounts from
the frontier of sufficient interest tmre.copy;
a series of imbecile attempts arid sanguina
ry repuires constitute the amount . of all.
In general the insurrection has been
quelled by the loyal Canadians vi ithout the
assistance Of the regulars. There ale
several French officers made prrsoners,
and confined at Montreal, who complain
bitterly of deception practised to enlirt
their services. To:sium up the whMe case,
it is the plot ofiome halCdozen visionar)
foolhardy knaves, who fly at the first ap

Where all will end, we know not, hut have'

Valves in ('anal Boats,—Loss of Coal.
The disadvanuNes.under wi.tch our oper
ators have so long labored by the loss of
weight in Coal, between here, and Phila.
delphia, have given rise to various sugges.
tions to obviate them. Among the plans
heretofore euggesttd, is that o f placing
valvs in the bow and stern of each boat,
which will open by means el screws, when
on the weigh lock, and let nut the water.,
This has now been brought into practice
by iv r. Seism/ Sii/ymen of our Borough,
and will, we think, in a great measure,
remedy the evil complained of. Nothing
better at least can be attained, unless we
procure theco-nperat ion of the Navigation
Company, in plane of mutual benefit apd
Thirty thousand dollar, will barely col
er the loss sustained by coal dealers the
last season from the difference of weigla
between this place and the city. The
average loss has been on each boat between
three and tour tons, as has, been daily rest
ed on the coal wharves of. Philadelphia,
and particularly by the • experimental
weighing stf six cargoes which fell short
twenty one tons. 14 e are of the belief if
recollection serves, that our navigation is
the only one where this difficulty is mate.
rially ' experienced ; on ail others the pur
chaser receives full weight. The difficnl
fy lies in the incorrect light weights Of
boats, and the Most practicable plan whar.h
has been suggested to obviate it, is t e
establishntentof a tide lock, where a re •
istry 'abatis ! , shall be kepi, and a cer ti -
cam of light weight given, to answer only
for ervitiele trip. The dealer thus will rh
eeive his whole complement ul coal, and
not be compelled to increase the price tit
sever Ate :light weight. 'A e • earnestly
tru-t this subject • 11 engage'the attentiart
of those interested during the coming .
Another diAcultil presents itself between
the' 'tier and the purchaser; it is the
qua ity of coat abstracted from boats on
thei ; downward passage. A lump or two
thrown off at the tikuse of every boatman's
customer on the line of canal, will make a
material diffetence before the boat reach
es 'nil.. Mount. This can be easily cov
ered 6 , the boatnian, if he neglects to
pump his boat for a day, or throws water
overhis load; hut the city purchasers can
not sell the bilge water fir coal, and there
fore Must raise - the price to cover them
selvea. We must there foie exert oursetvea
this winter to pro Cure the passage of:a law
by the 'Legislaturei, making the litist rac non
of coal . by boattnen a penal offence. This
can -easily be effected we think, and
may tend to check: en evil now incteseed
to a serious growth.
Another plan bits been proposed, which
will efford a fairer weight to the city pur
r chas4rs. It is th,'at the Navigation Com.
piny! should given its agents the power of
making reasonable tieductions on .Coal
toadeb to wet weeiher. It Coal is now
shipped when wet, the boatmen lose the
difference in weight on their arrival at the
city, to prevent virtich they will sometimes
krep it damp by throWing water over it.—
rtigulation of this kind would prevent
imposition by removing the cause.
With these guards on our operations,
we may restore thie coal trade to a living
busitiess ; without them our mines might
as well be deserted, for their working is
suicidal. In the Mean tinte,we would re
commend as a partial check, the general
adirption of the valve, as introduced by
Mr. S.illyman. iLet each boat be fitted
during the comity. winter, and the evil
maybe in a measure obviated, and we
have little doubt t hatihe Navigation Com
pany, will see the justice of complying with
the pressing necessity which demands the
erection of a tide lock and the adoption
of other measure to protect the coal trade.
