Yankee Lumbermen in Canada.
Since the close of the Baltic to a valuable
timber trade, a great impetus has been given
to that on tho American side of the Atlantic ;
great quantities have been shipped from the Po
tamic during the past winter, for France, and
the Maine Lumbermen never were so busy as
they have been during the past season. But
the greatest scene of lumber activity on our
continent, for the past two years, we under
stand, has been in Canada. About two years
ago the Canadian Government threw open to
competition an immense tract of timber land,
lying on the bank of the St. Maurice, midway
between Montreal and Quebec. The Govern
ment of Canada was liberal in the ternjs which
it offered. A tract of territory consisting of
two thousand square miles, covered with red
and white pine, was divided into portions ot
Lily square miles, and the right to cut for a
given number of years was sold at auction in
Quebec in the month of July of each of. the
last two years. , And a number of our Eastern
lumber merchants availing themselves of the
advantages then held out, bought tracts, and
began operations on a grand scale. Messrs.
Norcross, Phillips, & Co., of Lowell, we under
stand, have now one of the largest lumber es
tablishments in Canada- .They have exten
sive sawmills at the junction of the St. Mau
rice with the St. Lawrence, and it is said had
a thousand men employed by them in cutting
logs the last winter. There were employed
last winterln the timber territory named, six
hundred parr of horses, and five thousand men,
and never before did such activity exist in the
North American timber trade. The old saying
" it is an ill wind that blows nobody good,"
may be aptly applied to wars in Europe: al
though they do immense evil to the people in
those countries which are the scenes of strife,
they benefit us in Americi, by increasing our
commerce, and calling fourth greater industri
al effort. Scunlifie American.

" Iron and Coal."
PotoM may boast of silver, ami California ol

to congratulate themselvs in possessing Mines
of iron, with which all our emporiums are like
ly henceforth to tte strengthened. Wc have buil
dings iiuid household furniture of iron iron
ships, and marbelized iron. The cheaper this
precious metal is rendered, the more general
will le its appliances; -for? the Genius of lron
like Proteus, can assume any shape, while in
genuity is ever on the alert among our- plastic
spirits of enterprise. All we want are men
with iron constitutions to carry out those gi
gantic projects which are destined to distin
guish our land of refuge as the mightiest re
public ever established since the world was
created- ' : -
; In anthracite regions, beyond the mountain
ous Alleghany, in Tennessee, and in Ohio,
the metal abounds. Ages must pass away ere
Pennsylvania's veins arc exhausted.producing
from 30 to 60 per cent, of metalic iron ; but
even there, an impotent government im
pedes tho progress of skill and scieiico, by
withdrawing protection, . and years ' may
elapse before the price of material is reduced
which can only be ellectod by multiplying me
chanical contrivences for reaching it. Jivcry
means should be provided to facilitate the pro
gress of miners and founders. Pittsburg, alone
could supply the whole Union. Importations
from the old country cannot much longer be
depended on; her resources are beginning to
fail, aud at the present state - of political an
archy in Europ should warn us to look at home
and feel conscious of our wealth teeming in
Cybale's trcaffurc house which cannot be too
highly appreciated. . '
The popular mind has been dazzled with
golden visionsof Eldorado, but we should re
member all is not gold that glitters, and those
who possess a surp hiss capital may easily excel
incal-alehemists, by extracting gold from iron.
No safer investment exists, as our traffic in this
most useful of metals,will in a few years b in
depeudant of England.
Steam machinery and railways must be appli
ed more extensively, not only for the transit of
ore, but coal also which is the fuel that feeds
the flame of science. Liberal outlays will en

navigating the Ohio, "and the adoption of half
barges is already diminishing the expenses
of freightage from Pittsburg, the Birmingham

beneath the hydrographical basin of Ohio the I
beds are iuexhaustible, where shafts have

from live to nine feet in depth, has been traced
to the extent of 225 miles 100 miles wide.
The consumption for the present year will in
crease considerable ; from Pittsburg alone, ex
ports will average not less than 1,300,00) tons.
Gas works and steam engines are now indis
pensable to an energetic race of utilitarians
so, while aventurcrs are rocking their cradles,
containg gold idols; let us keep pace with the
march of intellect, rule the world pacifically,
with rods of iron, and invade the subterrane
an treasuries of old King Coal.
Baltic Theatre of the War.
The Baltic promises to become soon the the
atre of the most destructive naval warfare yet
recorded. In aid of gigantic murder, means
yet untried will be brought to bear, rapid and
terrible in their execution, aud destined to
mark an era in naval contests. On the Baltic
csj)ccially they will bo a novelty. -
The principle theatre ol the war win be tnc
Gulf ot Finland, and the entrance to the Gulf
of Bothnia, where the island of Ahland is situ

to the City of Abo in Finland, and menaces
even Stockholm. England will try to seize it.

Constadt is 50 59 X. latitude and 29 40 E.
longitude, and is built at the south-east ex
tremity of Cotl'm-Ostrofl", 10 miles from the
mouth of the Nava, and 31 miles from Peters
burg. It is on an island seven miles long by
one mile broad. On an inland, too, opposite
the citadel is the castle or fortress of Crons
schlott, built by Peter. Tho harbor has one
channel fortified with a double lino of guns.
Between this and Constadt is 2,000 pacesin
width, and ample depth for the largest vessels.
All vessels going to Petersburg are searched
here, and such as are too large for the upper
waters of the. Neva are unloaded, and their
cargoes are placed in smaller craft, a rail In
fact, by which they are floated down the Neva
over the bar, which has sometimes but seven
feet of water.
Cronstadt has the form an irregular triangle.
It is strongly fortified. It has three harbors
lying to the south of the town. The outer or
military harbor is entirely fortified by a mole,
a rectangle stretching out into the sea, and
capable of holding, besides smaller vessels, 35
ships-of-the-line. It is so shallow at low wa
ter that many of the ships are obliged to an
chor in the middle harbor, which is properly
intended. for the fitting out and repairing of
vessels. It has a powder magazine, and manu
factory of pitch, tar, &c. The third post or
innermost harbor, which has space for G00
merchant vessels, and runs parallel with the
middle harbor, admits only merchantmen, for
which there is besides, a roadsted immediate
ly outside the port, defended also by the
citadel, constructed on a rock in the middle
of the Cronstadt. There is a large canal run
ning into the town, where vessels are repaired.
Cronstadt is regularly built, and contains many
fine, straight, well paved streets and several
public squares. The population is 40,000.
Disastrous Fire at Hollidaysbnrg.
HOLLIDAYSECRO, Julie 21.
A destructive fire broke out in the grocery
and liquor store of.F. n. Douglass & Co., in
Juniata street,at half-past 11 o'clock last night,
Before the flames could be checked ten build
ings were destroyed. The following arc the
places destroyed: Rock's shoemaker shop,
uougiass a jO. s grocery, iuartin's paint shop,
the confectionary store of Mrs. Lewis, A. P.
Baker's saddlery and harness shop, Gans and
Keinport's clothing store, the barber shop of
ueorge iiaas, uoctor Koaengue's drug store,
Black's confectionary and bake house, and the
stable of Dr. Roderigues. The whole corner
of montgomery and J uniata streets is in ruins.
The flames spread so rapidly that very few
goods could be saved. The loss will not pro
bably, fall short of $20,000, on which there is
a partial insurance. The fire was undoubtedly
the work of an incendiary.

The Trade of Lake Erie.
The report to the Legislature of this State
upou the Sunbury and Erie Railroad presents
some facts iu regard to the increase of popula
tion in the States bordering on Lake Erie. In
1S10, the aggregate population of Ohio, Indi
ana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin was 2,
021,728 The increase in ten years' was 1,456
205. In 1850 the population of the States
named was 4,525,370, exhibiting another in
crease in ten years of about 1,700,000. In 1800
the population in this region was only 51,006.
The increase in fifty years is nearly four wit'i
lions and a half. In each period of ten years
the population has nearly doubled. To these
States must be added the trade, travel and com
merce of Lake Erie, that vast region of country
which reaches from the Sault of St. Mary,s to
the. west eud of Lake Superior, a country rich
in mineral wealth and of great agricultural ca
pacity, and presenting an extent of inland ship
navigation, by means of internal improvements,
nowhere else to be found. By means of the
Wetland Canal, now enlarged for vessels, Lake
Ontario and the river St. Lawrence arc added
to Erie, Huron, Michigan and Superior. It is
shown to be practible that the Mississippi river
may also be connected with Lake Michigan by
a canal for vessels of deep, draught. When
that is accomplished, the trade, travel and com
merce thereby thrown upon the lakes may it
self exceed by many per cent, the present ap
parently extraordinary business of Erie.
If any body supposes that the plundering on
the Public Works has ceased since the bill-authorizing
their sale has become a law, they
supposed very silly thing. Operations in this
way go on as usual, or perhaps more briskly
than before, in view of the threatened sale,
which would cut short the business. The Tax
Payers will understand they have no respite
from the rapacious tcculators, and that they
will have a bigger bill to pay next year than
this. When the Tax-collector comes around
with his duplicate, let it remind them that in
any event, sale or no sale, they will save mon
ey ly voting for Pollock for Governor and
Darsie for Canal Commissioner. By no means
has the plundering ceased, or the extravagance
stopped. Economy is a word that has no place
in the vocabulary or practice ol tne uynasiy(
now in power. Plunder plunder plunder
appears to be their never-ceasing thought and
occupation. Holluwysburg Jiegtsler.
. As Explanation. The New York Commer
cial explains by a singular hypothesis the vast
and ready preparations with which England
lias entered upon the war. These preparations
were, to a great extent, made several , j-ears
ago, when there were rumors ol a disposition
on the part of the French to "avenge Water
loo," and when even a French invasion was
talked of, and the best modes of meeting it
were discussed. The Commercial supposes that
all this was bv an understanding between the
French, and English eovernments, both of
which were aware of the designs of Russia up
on Turkey, and both of which perfectly under
stood each other. The English Government
could not go on with pre pa rations for war,
without a pretext ; the French labored under
no such disadvantage, aud could go ou with
out any other reason than the will of the ru
ling power, and thus both, under xretence of
arming against each other, were making ready
lor a united attack upon a common cnciny.-

From little cases,-very neat, - -
Up to those of largo dimensions, ,
Suitable for high pretentions. ; ;

To show your friends your many graces.

- Between the person and the Clothes.

Should never come 'midst clouds and shades,
But when tho monarch of the skies,
His shining robes puts on, arise "
And bring your little ones to me ' '
And brightest pictures you-shall sec. . -:- .
Another theme the muse suggests,
To put all gloomy doubts to rest, -Such

Should bo invoked in place of art, -And

told with .conscience clear of evil
We have no dealings with the devil. -Gallery,
