tUIjig aniJ (lourier. join S. Sayward, Editor. SATURDAY, MAY 3,1851. are under obligations to A. C. Mor ton, Esq., Civil Engineer for a copy of his re- ton, "h, port on the survey of the Europern and North and North American Railway: made under the authority of the State of Maine. This is a very full and com pip te report, containing a great variety of statistics and other matter bearing upon the advantages of the road. In the construction, every Railroad the question of great importance is, will it pay ? In answering this question the report goes on to say that the local business part of the road which is in the State of Maine, will be made up bv portions of the population of Penobscot, Hancock, Washington and Waldo Counties, and of Charlotte Co , New Brunswick amounting to about 150,000 inhabitants. The western terminus of the road is at the City of Bangor, which contains nearly 15,000 inhabitants. This is an important point being at the head of navigation on the Penobscot river, and containing a wealthy and enterprising population. The number of arrivals at this port during the last year, were 3567, and of clearances 3574. The assessed valuation of real and personal estate is $5,121,805. The value of exports for the pas year will probably amount to between three and four millions of dollars. There was 20 vessels built in the Penobscot district in 1850, having an aggregate tonnage of 3188 tons. , The Penobscot river possesses the peculiarity before alluded to, which characterizes the St. John and other rivers along this coast, having a descent of 92 feet in a distance of 12 miles and terminating at the City of Bangor. Above these rapids the river is navigable for small Bteamboats and other craft a distance of forty miles. An immense amount of lumber in logs is annually sent down this stream from the interior. This fall in the Penobscot, so near tide water, renders the water power adds vastly to the business and growth of Bangor. It is now improved to a great extent, and nearly all the lumber from the Penobscot waters is manufactured at mills erected on this portion of the river. Extensive saw mills and other machinery have been erected at North Bangor, Basin Mills, Orono, East and West Great Works, Milford and Oldtown. There is an aggregate cf 15 gangs and 154 single saws, equal to about 200 single saws, in operation at these mills. There are also 41 Lath, 9 Shingle and 10 Clapboard machines, 5 cooper, 3 machine, and several furniture, carriage makers and smith shops, besides other manufactories. This machinery is capable of manufacturing 176 millions of feet of lumber, 60 millions of laths, 14 millions of clapboards, 17 millions of shingles, 11 millions of staves, 800,000 pickets, 60,000 oars and 30,000 barrels. The amount of these articles, annually manufactured, does not every year reach the full capacity of the machinery, the quantity being regulated by the number of logs which come down the river, and the state of the market. The largest amount of lumber surveyed in anyone year, was 213 millions, and this of course included lumber manufactured at other points on the river above and possibly some may have been manufactured the year before. The total amount surveyed in the year 1850, was nearly 203 millions. This is exclusive of what is technically termed short lumber, such as pickets, laths, clapboards, shingles, &c. The lumbering business on the Penobscot waters, has been increasing from year to year, and a reference to the amount of lumber surveyed for a series of years, does not show those great and frequent fluctuations which are generally supposed to attend this branch of industry. The lumber surveyed the last year, at an average of $12 per thousand, amounts to $2,-436,000, and it is probable that the value of all the lumber and other products of the forest manufactured on the Penobscot for several years past, would amount to not less than two and a half millions of dollars annually. This lumber is mostly manufactmed within -12 miles of the city of Bangor, and immediately on the line of the proposed road, and forwarded to market in rafts on the river. This mode of transportation is found to be expensive from the losses sustained by the lumber being split, worn or destroyed in rafting and deterioration by being put into the water and aoiled. These losses are estimated by intelligent dealers, at from fifty cents to one dollar per thousand feet, which, when added to the expense of forming the rafts and running them, increases the actual cost of transportation to such a rate per thousand as to leave no doubt that'the better qualities of lumber could be transported on the railway at a great saving to the forwarders or dealers, Branches extended to all the mills, none of which need exceed one fourth of a mile in length, and some much less, would permit lumber to be transported directly from the mills to market in the cheapest and most expeditious manner, and delivered in the best condition. During the best season for rafting, the amount of lnmber forwarded in each raft varies from 20,000 to 30,000 feet but during a portion of the year, only half this amount can be run in each raft in consequence of the low stages of the water. Consequently damage to the lumber, in such cases, and detention (q arri ving at market, are very much increased. With a railway properly equipped. 200.000 to 250,000 feet may be takes to market Ja each train, and one million daily, or as much as can be loaded and unloaded in that time. By this means the supply can be regulated by the demand, and the lumber retained at the mills, where the expense of piling room is leu than in the city, until required for shipping. Large quantities of small lumber are annually forwarded to market in rafts. Much of this is lost or disposed of at great inconvenience and expense, on account ot its frequently having a different .destination from 'that of the larger lumber In the rafts, upon which it is forwarded. . This description of lumber, therefore. would mostly be forwarded to market by rail-i Letter trom the President, way conveyance in preference to any other. The following letter has just been published. Mr. Morton says, having on a previous occa- j It was addressed to Gen. Pierce, who had en-sion, examined with much care and attention, closed to the President certain resolutions the subject of transportation of lumber adopted by the New Hampshire Constitutional Convention at its first session, in relation to the Union, and the Compromise measures of Congress : Washington, Jan. 14, 1851. Dear Sir I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Kesolutions, passed by the Convention to revise the Constitution of the State of New Hampshire, which you transmitted to me. I am highly gratified to see State after State assuming the high and patriotic ground in favor of the Union, now occupied by New Hampshire; and beg leave to make my grateful acknowledgments to the Convention for the flattering terms in which they have expressed their approbation of the attitude of the Executive of the General Government upon the subject. Truly Yours, MILLARD FILLMORE. Hon. Frank. Pierce, President of New Hampshire Reform Convention. . from these mills to malket by railway, I j can with much confidence advance the opinion that ,wilh proper arrangements, all the i 1 better qualities of lumber, amounting to 60 or , annually, as well as the greater portion of the short lumber, will take this conveyance. The latter, although less in quantity, will probably produce nearly as much revenue as the former. The following table shows the amount lumber surveyed in this city for the years named : The following is a summary statement of the arrivals and clearances to and from Bangor from Jan. 1st, 1850, to Jan. 1st, 1851, with the aggregate amount of the principal articles of imports and exports during the same period : We shall icfcr to this report again for further matters of interest. Ltr On May-Day, a little boy nine years of age, son of Mr. Benjamin Thoms, a boy of great promise and on whom the fondest hopes of parents and friends were centered, while crossing the Kenduskeag stream on the jjiill logs between Lovers Leap and Bruce's Mill fell into the stream and was drowned. His body was recovered a few hours after and borne to the sorrow stricken home of his parents. The affliction comes with crushing weight upon their hearts and seems to shut out the light from their home and to make the world dreary and worthless. He wes all, seemingly, that 8 son could be; and to be thus suddenly removed, when in full health and promise, bouy-ant and joyous, gives a keenness of anguish which only deeply stricken hearts can appreciate. In the gloom of similar sorrows, we have found consolation in the thought that God is ever nearer than our inmost thought; and that the death of the body is the birth of the spirit, and the closing of the natural eyes on earth is the opening of the spiritual eyes in a higher sphere, and the attentions and love of parents and friends on earth,- are left, for the kindlier regards, andAe purer love and the wiser directions of good angels. May these parents find equal consolations in their affliction. Ey One of our aged and shrewd citizens awhile since met in the street, near where there was a very rich display of house plants for sale, an old bachelor and a widower. Gentlemen, said he, there is a use of flowers of which I think it would be well for you to avail yourselves. The truth of this will be apparent to you without a particular explanation, if you will each of you purchase handsome specimens of those flowers, no matter at wiat cost, and send them to families where there are beautiful ladies, and then call frequently to dee how they grow ! The bachelor profited by the suggestion, and although he then seemed to be wilting he is now a happy husband and father, and owns a share in that same plant. td The Anti-Rent troubles seem to have broken out again on the Van Rensalaer estate near Albany. An agent of the proprietors while serving a process for the collection of rents, was attacked by some 20 or 30 Indians" armed with rifles, tomahawks, &c. They bandaged bis eyes, gave him a coat of tar and feathers, and marched him through the streets, and liberated him on his promise not to disturb them again. The subject of choice fruit trees continues to occupy the attention of our citizens. This is all very well. We cannot but hope that some of the enterprising farmers in every town in the county will try a few of the choice dwarf pear trees on the Angers Quince, such as is imported by S. L. Goodale, Esq., of the Saco Nurseries. If people once become acquainted with the excellent qualities of those trees they will not consent to get along without them. ty We have received a lithograph plan of the Routes for the proposed Railroad from Milford or Oldtown up the Penobscot river to Lincoln and Mattawamkeag from reconnoissance by E. Appleton, Civil Engineer, to accompany the Report which we published a few days since. The report and plan give a very clear view of the country and the facilities for constructing a road on the proposed line. Stealing Cottom. The recent complaints of consignees of cotton laden ships arriving at Liverpool from Savannah, that the cotton was of short weight, hare led to the discovery that the stevedores have been in the habit of secreting the cotton in their mattresses, taking them down empty and returning with them full when the ship is loaded. The Savannah Republican supposes that from $15,000 to $20,000 of cottoi may have been stolen this season. In many instances several bales of cotton have been missing. ! - Messrs. B. F. Duren 8c Co. have received the May number of the Mothers Magaxine, a Valuable and interesting orthodox work, ,J BANGOR DAILY WHIG-.AND jCQ.URIER. Mr. Clay at Home. Mr. Clay returned to his home at Ashland on the 20th inst. ' His health is greatly improved since he left New Orleans, where he labored under the effects of a cold, probably contracted on the voyage from Havana. Of the present state of feeling towards Mr. Clay in Kentucky, the Lexington Observer says : At no period of Mr. Clays illustrious and ever memorable career has he enjoyed to the extent he now does the sincere and heartfelt admiration and regard of almost the entire population of Kentucky. They regard him as a great public benefactor, instead of, as formerly, a great party leader ; and even the fiercest of his hitherto political opponents do not hesitate to award to him the meed of praise to which his recent patriotic efforts in behalf of our glorious Union give him just claim. Long may the noble old patiiot, statesman, and orator be spared to do battle for his country against those who would destroy her fair proportions and make her a shapeless mass of ruins ! Post Office Contracts. The decisions on proposals tor mail bags, &c., were on Friday, the 25 th ult., decided as follows: Leather horse mail bags to James Shannon, of Frankfort, Kv.; John C. Feltman, of Albany, N. Y., for leather pbucht J the common canvas bags to Messrs. Mason & Co., Baltimore; Mr. William E. Hooper, of Baltimore, for canvas pouches, canvas horse bags, drop letter bags, and locked for the transmission of newspapers. bit' Lif-' Mr. J. S. Richards on Kenduskeag Bridge, who ever has an eye open for the discovery of any means of making home agreeable and of lightening its burdens, has obtained a supply of the Flour of Pumpkins, prepared by the Shakers, for the manufacture of the genuine old fashioned pumpkin pie at anytime of the year. An Dunce and a half of this powder is sufficient for a quart of milk and the other fixings. Any man who would please his wife should take home a neat package of this for a trial. Grapes for the North. ' We learn that Judge Goodrich, of Burlington, Vt., has forwarded to Messrs. Henry Little & Co., of this city, plants of two excellent varieties of early grapes which never fail to ripen in Canada and all through Vermont. These are known as the Burlington Seedling and the Marion. These plants will arrive in the noon boat to-day, and our people will, of course, be desirous of trying them in this climate. EF The Canal boats, the New York Journal of Commerce says, are bringing down potatoes of a fine quality from Lake Champlain. They sell for 75 cents per bushel, by the quantity. French potatoes, of a quality not dissimilar, are to be had in considerable quantities, at 75 cents per hamper. Bp The Maine Farmer advises the farmers of Maine to put in all the spring wheat which they can do conveniently. The ravages of the wevil have become much less than formerly, and it is supposed that a good crop of spring wheat may this year be obtained. Eds'- Merrys Museum for May has been received from Messrs. S. T. Alien & Co., New Y ork. This work is edited by Peter Parley, who though residing in Paris, in Prance, will continue to discharge his editorial duties to this work. The price of subscription is one dollar a year. W e have received a copy of the International Magazine for May, from those enterprising dealers in books, Messrs. Fetridge & Co., of Boston. This is a work of established-merit in which the substantial leads, unstinted by the fanciful. The work may be obtained at D. Bugbees. tW Messrs. George R. Smith & Co. are the Bangor agents for Littells Living Age, which continues to maintain its good reputation as furnishing the real wheat of foreign and domestic periodical literature. iy There is a capital story told of some one who prayed that the Lord would bless the potato crop, which seemed to have been smitten in his displeasure, and regard with special smiles the few planted in our back garden Ids'' We are requested to state that there will be services at the UniveTsalist Church, to-morrow (Sunday.) The funeral of Mr. Sumner Marston will be attended therein the forenoon, at the usual hour for morning exercises. CF The weather cleared off yesterday morning delightfully bright, add pleasant. To Adam, Paradise was home; to the good among his descendants, home Is Paradise. The Bankers Almanac for 1851. We have received from Messrs. Phillips, Sampson & Co., of Boston, a copy of a valuable work with the above title. It contains a great mass of valuable matter, statistics, tables, calculations, &c., for dealers in money, and for merchants and other business men. Liri The Springfield Republican says all or nearly all the fugitive alaves in that place have gone to Canada many of them within a few days. tV By some oversight or accident the mail bag containing newspapers for Bangor did not reach her by the mail this morning,. The New Three Cent Coin. The Washington Union, referring to the new three-cent coin, publishes a letter from a gentleman in the mint, which contains the following information respecting it, which is interesting. The coin will be ready for issue by the first of May : The metal is composed of three-fourths silver and one-fourth copper, and will always retain 8 silvery color, though not quite equal in that respect to the other standard. It leaves a margin of profit to government, which the other coins do not ; the reason ot which may be explained as follows : The original bill for this coinage, prepared before the postage bill was initiated, contained another provision by which the worn out Spanish money which circulates largely among us, and which is everywhere regarded as a nuisance, should be drawn into the mint and worked up. But, in order to effect that, it was necessary to provide means for buying them at their nominal value, or not much below it ; otherwise the people could not be expected to make the sacrifice those coins being really worth some ten or twelve per cent, le&s than their current value, by reason of wear. The reduction of fineness from nine-tenth to three-fourths in the three cent piece was therefore intended to enable government to call in the fips, levies, and quarters, as also to pay expenses of transportation, insurance, &c. Conflict with Rnnaway Slaves. Baltimore, April 28. We have by the Southern mail to-night papers from New Orleans to the 22d inst., and dates from Galveston to the 18th. The Galveston Civilian states that McCulloughs company of Mounted Rangers overtook on the 19th inst., a gang of runaway negroes near the river Nueces, on their way to Mexico. The negroes were challenged by the Rangers to sur-renger, but refused, and in return opened a fire upon the Rangers, killing two and wounding a third very badly. A general engagement then ensued, in which all the negroes were killed. Their number is not mentioned. MONEY, TRADE, .COMMERCE. BOSTON, April 30, P.

BROCKMULLER gratefully acknowledges the very generous patronage of this very discrimination public, bestowed on his May-Day Floral Festival. Palm Street was in the vanInne in spite of clouds and rain. Gould the Mercury man, who abused the aaigufuJsi tue1' by using it where he should have used Sensitiveness have put his wolfish phiz into my Green-house on that occasion, its caustic shape would have been so modified, tlmt.stauding before a looking-glass, he would have deemed his own Image that of some happy strait ger. But a word to thee, "Justice Mercury. Had "VM of the Whig, whoso kindlyspoke a good word for me, named directly or indirectly Mr. White or his festival, I should hardly have forgiven her for it I presume she did not think of him. I made my arrangements without the slightest reference to him cr his. He may have all ot Bangor he can get, and there will probably be room enough left forme. I have no occasion to crowd him. He arranges bis festivals I mine. He fixes bis prizes I mine. He settles bis prices I mine. He enjoys bis patronage I mine. If I, or any friend of mine, says that T do net do any certain thing, what title has Mr. White, or any one for him, to infer a charge that he does that certain thing? Is it conscience that sometimes makes cowards of men, to hear terror where no terror i, and to tremble at Imaginary foes? I thank God I do not live in Mr Whites shadow; nor have I any occasion to annihilate any substance of hls N patron of Palm street went away dissatisfied; none threw down iheir prizes, refusing to carry them home; none who wished to exchange for any other plant found the prices doubled from what they were offered for the day before ; none who came with high raised expectations went away grumbling.
