The State of Vermont is 157} miles in length, and from 35 to 90 in breadth. Its surface is computed to be 9,000 square miles; and its average population to each square mile in 1830, was 31.18. The face of the country is very uneven, and in many parts, mountainous. The lowest parts of the State are on the borders of lake Champlain, the surface of which is but eighty seven feet above tide water. The highest point is the peak of Mans field mountain, called the Chin, in the east part of Chittenden county. It is 4,279 feet above the level of the sea. Seven other peaks, principally in the
range of the Green Mountains, exceed 3,000 feet. The soil of Verinont is peculiarly adapted to grazing ; yet wheat, rye, barley, oats, potatoes, and Indian corn are extensively cultivated. The whole State is extremely well watered; and the mountains are cultivated to the height of 2000 feet.
