Water communication between Boston and the central part of this state, has been opened by means of Middlesex canal and Merrimack river; around the numerous falls of the river the following canals, within the limits of New Hampshire, have been constructed; Bow Canal, completed in 1812, is of a mile in length, and passes a fall of 25 feet with 4 locks. A dam is constructed across the river at the head of the falls. Cost of the whole $21.000. Hooksett Canal, 50 rods in length, passes Hooksett falls by 3 locks with a lockage of 16 feet. Cost $17,000. Amoskeag Canal,8 miles below the above, passes a fall of the same name by a lockage of 45 feet, with 9 locks. Cost $50,000. Union Canal, immediately below Amoskeag, overcomes 7 falls in the river, and has 7 locks in 9 miles. Cost $50,000.
In 1811, a charter which has since been renewed, was granted to a company for the purpose of constructing a canal from Winnipiseogee lake to Cocheco river below the landing at Dover. The distance is 27 miles. The waters of the lake are 452 feet above the level of the river, and the fall would require 53 locks. It is estimated that the expense would not exceed $300,000.

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 Vesmont 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.
In addition to the abstract of the Constitution of Vermont given in the American Almanac for 1831, it may be stated that in all elections, except those of counsellors and electors of President and Vice-President, a major
