THE FORESTS OF NEW JERSEY.
A correspondent, writing from Cape May,
chmmutnc&tes the following interesting facts
respecting the forests of New Jersey, He
It may sound strangely to very many of
your readers, hut it is true, nevertheless, that
within a hundred miles of New York, in
the little State of New Jersey, there are
forests almost as dense and impenetrable
as ever stood in the primal ages; forests
through which the light struggles with but
feeble power, and in which to dav unfamiliar
feet would become involved in inextricable
labyrinths. The whole of southern New Jer
gey, in fact, is more or less remarkable for its
immense tracts of pine and cedar. The most
extensive, howevei, are in the counties of
Cumberland and Cape May, lymg on the Del
aware Bay and Atlantic coast. In the latter
county there are conti :tn<us cedar swainp.i of
no less than si venteen miles in length, and
from five to eight ruiles in breadth ; and one
may travel for hours along the narrow roads
without discovering anywhere a clear 'patch'
The original growth of trees in these
swauips, which might filly be denominated
dismal, has disappeared ; scarcely any are now
to be found more than a century old. For
merly, it is 6aid, they attained a great age ;
on one old tree, some years since, a resident
counted seven hundred rings of annual
growth ; on another, one thousand and eighty
rings were counted. The trees stand very
thickly in their eaily growth; but, as they
increase in size and are crowded for space?
the tops become thhi, and the trees stand
straight and solemn, like so many mourners,
with mere tufts of foliage floating from theii
These swamps are very valuable, an acre
of such timber commanding Iroin live hun
dred to a thousand dollars. A peculiar fea
ture of the swamps i? that the soil is of pure
ly vegetable growth, often twenty feet or
more in depth. This peaty earth is constant
ly accumulating from the fall of leaves and
boughs, and trees are found buried in it at all
deplhs quite down t the solid ground. The
timber so buried retains its bu >yancy and

numbers 01 workmen are constantly etnplov ed

From the same place thousands of dollars

It is the pride oi Americans that in pro
prrtl<> to our population we have more than
double the number of newspapers of any oth

that our first scholars are better educated
than those of the world ; but it is claimed
that the great body of our people are more
intelligent than are the working classes of
Europe ; and if this newspaper press is not
the cause, it is an evidence of the fact.
In ordinary times newspapers are cheaper
here than there, and every family not on the

A good story is told of a certain

"THE AGE" will advocate the principles and poli
cy of the Democratic paity, and will, therefore, nee
essarily favor the restoration of the Union as it was
and deten I the Constitution of the United St tos,.rd
that ot this Commonwealth.
It will freely and fairly discuss all legitimate su -
jects of newspaper comment, including of course, and
pre-eminently at this tiu.e, all questionsconnecte
with tlf existing unhappy condition of our ountry
It will fearlessly criticise the public actsof public
servants, and defend the lega and constitutional
rights of individual citizens ant of sovereign states,
against assualts from any quarter
It will seek to awaken the minds of the people 10
a proper sense of the a tual con lition of the Repub
lic—to present to them, tru'hfully, the fear, ul perils
in which we stand as a nation —to exhibit the m igni
tude of the task that is before them, if they would
check our downward progress—and to inspire theiu
with patriotic determination to apply THE REMEDY
for our national ills
In briet, it will, in all things, aim to I e the faith
ful exponent of Democratic principles, .tod to render
itsolf worthy to bo an org in of the Democratic par
ty, under whi.se auspices our country prospered so
long and so well. Th" restoration of that party—
the party of the CONSTITCTIO.V and the UNION- to
power, in the legislative and executive governmen
tal branches of the States and of the Union, we be
lieve to he neces.-aryto avert anarchy, and the utter
ruin o< the Republic. To contribute tu that restora
tion will t>e our highest aim.
The News, Literary, Commercial, nndji her de

P \ ®'fher produces or is

of the blood, wherein

competent to sustain
the vital forces in their

leaves the system to

unhealthy food, impure air, filth and filthy

the venereal infection. Whatever he its origin,
it is hereditary in the constitution, des< ending

blood; purge out the causes of disease, and
vigorous health will follow. By its peculiar
virtues this remedy stimulates the vital func
