Yankee Lumbermen in Canada.
Since the close of the Baltic to a rainalde
timber trade, a great impetus has been given
to that on the American side of the Atlantic;
great quantities have been shipped from the Pe
:Antic 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 mind,
lying on the. hank of the St. Maurice, midway

ment of Canada was 2tt tin the terns which

two thousand squaw miles, covered with red
and white pine, was divided into portions of
idly square Tithes, and the right to cut for a
given number of years was sold at atielieti in
QUeleic In the mess* of July of each of the
last two years. And a number of our Eastern
lumber merchants availing themselves of the
advantages thou held out, bought tracts, mid
began operations on a grand scale. Messrs.
Norcross, Go., of Lowell, we under
stand, have now one of the largest lumber es- .
tablishtflents in Cluteda. They have exten

The Trade of Lake Erie.
The report to the Legislature of this StMe
upon the Sunbury and Erie Railroad presents
some facts in regard to the increase of popula
tion in the States bordering on Lake Eric. In
1840, the aggregate population of Ohio. Indi
ana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin was 2,
924,728 The increase in ten years was 1,15,i
-:,t9ti. In 15.70 the population or the States
named was 4,325.:iiti, exhibiting another in
crease in ten years of about 1,700,000. In 1800
the population in this region was only 61.006.
The increase in fifty years is nearly /ion' *Wi
liam, 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 end 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
Welland Canal. atow enlarged for vessels, Lake
Ontario and tln , river St. Lawrence are added
to Erie, Huron, Michigan and Superior. It is
shown to be prate:lb - le 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
selfexceed by many per cent. the present ap
parently extraordinary business of Erie.
if any b o tiy supposes that the plundering, on
the Public Works has ceased since the bill-au
thorizing their sale has become a law, they
suppose a 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 peettlatoors, and that they
will have a bigger bill to pay next year than
this. When the Tax-collector comes around
with his dtiplieate, let it remind them that in
any event, sale or no sale, they will save mon
ey by voting for Potaaa for Governor and.
DARSIE for Canal Commissioner. By no means
has the plundering ceased, or the extravagance
stopped. Ecol.omy is a word that has no place

rid! explains by a singular hypothesis the vast
anti ready preparations with which England
has entered upon the war. These preparations
were, to a great extent, made several years
ago. when there were rumors of a disposition
on the part of the French to ttavenge 'Water
loo," and when even a French invasion was
ked of, and the best modes of meeting it
were discussed. The Commercial supposes that
all this was by an understanding between the
French , and English governments, both of
which were aware of the designs of Russia up
on Turkey, and both of which perfectly wider
stood each other. The English Government
not go on with preparations for war,
,vititout A pretext, ; the French labored under
no such disadvantage, and could go on with
out any other reason than the will of the Mt
ling ‘r, and thus both, under pretence of
arming against each were making r,
for a united attack upon a connelOrt enemy.

Anti-Nobrairka Meeting in Zudiana.

Democrats. Resolutions were passed, repudi

it pledged the Democracy to the "extension of
