The extraction nf turpentine from tho plno trees which cov er tho region near the sencnust in the South ern Status, furnishes employment for a great portion ol the population, especially ol the poorer classes. A Southern paper gives nn account of tho process by which this is ef fected : il is even simpler than that by which sugar is nianiifiirtiired from tho snp of the maple nt the INorlli : " As soon ns ihe sap beeins to run in the season, a notch is nude near the root of Ihe tree to catch the turpentine. This is called boxing the tree. Then it is dipped out, geuerally Willi n simple gourd, into buckets, which nre emptied into the barrels on ihe spot. These arc ready for market ns soon as they nre filled. " Another small portion oflho tree U then pared off and tno sip men descends ireciy into mese recepia c'c. Under ihis operation, a pine will usually live for six or keven years, and is used in this manner un til it is thus deprivcil of its bark and a small portion iif ils trunk, to ihe height of ten or fifteen feet. "One man, il is calculated, will attend to 7000 boxes in a season, ond will collect from 100 to 130 barrets of turpentine tn a year. " When the trees become useless for this purpose tliey nro felled mid cut up into small pieces, which nre piled in heaps, set on lire, and carefully covered with dirt. As the wood slowly burns away, the tar runs Trout beneath into gutters prepared for its recep tion. The kiln, while burning, is carefully watched day and night. Onn hundred bar rels of tar arc usually nindo from a tingle kiln, and tho remains cf the wood arc then used for charcoal. only an occasional remark.

Inti-Uent Matters. A house in Anch- ram, Columbia county, New York, was pulled down, on Friday or imnday last, by seven men, disguised ns Indians. T ho property liau re cently been purchased by another person, which so incensed the anti-renters, that they met, and destroyed the house, The Swallow. Men and apparatus have been sent up from New York city to Athens, and they are now cngnged in efforts to raise the Swallow. The eddnr of the t roy lludget, wim went down with the legislative committee, the other day, thinks the boat will be raised and, wilh now bows, and other repairs, she will be as good as ever. Her timbers are firm, and all her inaclui.cry is in the same position as no lore sue struck. She is but nine years old, and was built of the best oak, locust, and cedar. About 810,- 000 were expended iu improvements during Ihe past winter.

The cap. tain who brought this report did not recollect the name of the lot vessel : but he was sure that it was not the Flirt. We hope that the re- poit may prove to be incorrect. Noble. A servant girl, who had lived for some time in the family of Dr. Herron, at Pitts burgh, went to turn, since the lire, and informed him that she had saved several hundred dollars, which she wished him to take and distribute among the sufferers. 1 ' Canal Breach. There was a breach in the canal nt (josport, about 7 miles from Lockport, land lo olftet Cuba, when that island is ret annexed lo the United States. If thn acqui sition uf the latter is necessary to protect and preserve tho " peculiar institutions " of thn South, tho acquisition of the island of New foundland is equally important to givo us tho control of tho cod fishery. Besides, it is far moro honorable to beard tho British lion ill once than to bo aggressing upon nioro feeble neighbors, who have not strength to meet tis in the field. A Fall. At Barnard, Vt., on Saturday evening, 5th inst., Prof. Wright was lectur ing on galvanism, electricity, &c. in the nlJ Universalis! meeting house, when tho false floor which had been put up between tho galleries gave way, and the audience of 150 persons, apparatus, lights and nil, were pre cipitated to the floor beneath.

If it i3 lhe case, that ihis route opens the greatest extent of country to market, covers Ihe mo-t business, accom modates Ihe most people, nnd doe- the mo-t pood, ihen, Mircly, il is the du'y of every man lo prefer and encourniie ils construction. This line would open (not cive a choice of, menly)a market to the coun ties of Winasor, Ornnie, Wushinclon, Caledonia. Or leans, Lamoille, and Kssex. cont.iinin in the aggre gate n population of 141,9(31, nearly one-half of tho whole Slate while the Counties of Windham, Chit tinden, Tranlilm, nnd Grand Is'e, wilh a population of7S,933, maybe set down as balanced in iheir inter est on ihe question.

Now, will a northern and sou'hern line, or an eas'ern nnd vvesitrn, best pro mute this object'? Vill nut the former place Uur lington in competition, eight months in the year, with every port upon lhe Lake 7 Whitehall, being at the heai of Lake navigation, nnd much nearer lloston, or perhaps Virgennes, (saying nothing of other point-.) where the road woull come in contact Willi Ihe navigable w aters of lhe Lake, rniiht lind it for iheir interest lo carry freight toSi, Johns, snd receive it upon their wharves for nothing j if by so doing ll.ey.could become rivals to Uurlington. And why should Burlington, in such case, have nny very deci ded ndvaniages over these olher points 7 To become the great (lepot on the Lake, iiurlincton must be cume ttie terminus, or point, where lhe line singly connects itself wilh Lake navigation. If there is but one point for this object, must Income the all important one. If every port upon the Lake is open lo competition, Ihen lhe object is lost in the multipli city of interests, and the division of business. It w-il be understood that 1 am now speaking of the moro immediate interests of Uurlington, separately and in dependently cons dered. An I would not the Central or Montpelier lino strive the Lake nt Uurlington, nnd Ihere only 7 If so, it would bei-ome the sinele poinl of concentration upon lhe Lake, fir freight or pas sengers going lo or returning from the north and west. Besides, it would become lhe receiving and forwarding pint to nnd from every section of lhe Lake.

Should the Railroad from Lake Chimplain lo Odensburgh Oust reekarlered,) be, il wonld render this view of .he subject dou bly important. And a continuation of the Road front uurlington to &t. Johns would in no way detract from the same. Indeed. Ihe imne tuea of a great Eastern and Western thoroughfare, connectinj Boston wilh the western Lakes, and pissing through the vast iron re gions of Northern New York t branching in the mean time at llurlingion. and forming a ronneciing link be tween Roslon and the Capital of lhe British Provin ces, making Uurlington the great and only depot upon tne laKe. lor a business sa extensive as rnrne Hnra would cather, would raise the highest hopes as toher growth and prosperity. Such a line too would open a market to the whole State confer a great nnd last ing benenl upon our cuizenn and give permanencj and success to a gigantic, and most useful enterprise. stLiit.rx.
