provide water power for 56 large cotton

carrying irom 18,000 to 27,C00; spindles
each,. according to the fineness of the
fabric manufactured about eleven hun

power for machine shops and other pur

feet deep,' 110 feet wide at its head, and
80 at its terminus.. The water is to be
conducted by a parallel canal, to near the
head of the first, , where it - will be dis
charged into .another, which is to extend
eircuitiously. about ;a mile and a half.
These different canals are to furnish the
50 mills and a proportionate number of
machine shops with the power requisite
to their oncratitms. The foundations of
several large Mills arc to be laid this fall.

he has been tried and acquitted; and he

About a fortnight since, as Mrs. McKen
sie, of White Sand?, Prince Edward's
Island, was going to the woods in search
of her cows, accompanied by her son, a
lad about 11 years of ?ge, and a dog,
they met with a bear, when in the act of
stepping over a windfall, which immedi
ately seized the child. The dog at once
attacked the bear, and, together wiih Mrs.
M. who seized a club and beat him till the
blood run out of his nostrils, succeeded
in driving the beast towards the wood. -The
child was very much injured, and
had it not been for the assistance of his
mother and her faithful dog, he would
probably have been killed. The bear had
been seen prowling about the neighbor
hood for soir3 time previous, accompa

much damage among the cattle.
All the world is aware of the sufferings

from the failure of last year's crops; but,
it is not, perhaps, so well known to what

their owners find it their interest to con

High Prices. The Kingston (Cana

18 a bushel of corn to plant, it being a
year of almost famine in that vicinity.
The Detroit Free Press, copying the a
bove, adds, We too, can say a word about
high prices. A cargo of flour arrived
here in 1815, from Erie, at S6 per barrel
for the freight. In 18 16 flour was sold
here at $25 a barrel, and early in the
spring ol 1818 it was retailed by the 20

at $3 the bushel.'
