the farther they advanced." In epeakinj
cf the resources of Rcssiaa America, fir
John Richardson, ia bis work npoa .the
'Arctic searching expeditien,' quotes Doa
gard with regard to one portion of it, who
says that the 'hill of Y7 estevoi, near Nor
folk sounds, in north latitude 58 degrees,
which is 3,000 feet, French measure, ia
height, is clothed to its summit by a dense
forest of pint! and spruces, some of which
acquire a circumference of twenty-one feet,
and the prodlgous length - of one hundred
and sixty feet, and that the hollow trunk
of oue of these trees, made into a canoe,
is able to contain thirty men with all their
household effects 1 ' Sir: Jchri Richards
adds : , The climate of Sitka, (the name
of the bay as well as , the island upoa
which is situated New; Archangel, the
chief port of the Russian company, lyin
in 5? degrees north latitude,) i very
much milder than tnat cf Europe on the
came parallel, the cold of winter being
neither severe nor of long continuance.
The humidity of the atmosphere gives as
tonishing vigor to the vegetation, but al
though the foreat, nourished by a very
moist atmosphere and comparatively high
me a a temperature, is equal to that cf the
richest woodlands cf the Northern United
States, yet ccra does cot ripea thera.
This humidity cf the atmosphere, which
is occasioned by tha eurrocadlrg ? eea, is
douttksj tls causa cf corn cot coming ta
perfection at tlika ; fr soma distance ia
the interior cf the continent, as far east as
the .Mackenzie, ia tha territory occupied
by the Hudson Bay Cexnpany, the cereals
are successfully cultivated up to sixty da
grees north latitude, and '.occasionally ia
.soma fctslt37.tsl-rsJ-.d;r?,. ,f'rtb?r

keoxie, Sir John Rlchardsea tays that
Fort Laird, cf the sixtieth parki; taay
ba, considered as the northern limit cf the
economical of wheat,' as ia tha interior cf
Russian America the climate must be of
a drier nature than cpoa tha seaboard,
and probably more in the extreme, that is,
colder in winter and wanner in summer,
much cf the interior may be well adapted
for the . growth of the . cereals, although
they cannot bo successfully cultivated at
the Russian establish meats upon the coast.
The harbor of Stikaj and eevsral other
fine harbors are open during the . whole
