SCHENECTADY AND SARATOGA
A new and rather novel improvemen
in constructing roads is rapidly developin,
the resources of the agricultural districts it
our State-bringing into play the enter
prise of our farmers and giving then ad
vantages for travel little short of railroads:
and in a manner particularly adapted if
their nccommoolation, nod at a compara
tively smal rate of xpense. Plank road;
can be made. as a eneral rule. for ahoui
the year's interest ofra well made railroad.
About one hundred companies have al
ready been formed, or are about being
formed, to con;truct these roads in variouq
parts of the State of New York, The time
is conting when m'nst of the roads of the
State and Union, where there is any con
siderable amount of travel, and timber
reasonable, will be plauked. Thus far
every plank rad made in this.Slate bas
fully equalled, if not exceeded, the expec'
tation of its projectors. Tho fact that a
pair of horses can with ease, and with in.
creased speed.'carry double the weight on
a plank road that they can on the best
common roads. without any other con
sideration, settles their value. When the
roads are bad, as They usually are, spring
and fall, four.times the weiglt can be taken
on plank roads at such seasons that can
be taken on common roads. The far.
mer can go to market at all times when
he c;innot work his farm on account ofthe
weather, or from other causes; and when
other roads are impassible he can trot
off with his pair of horses, and iwo
tons weight, and return (living some 15 or
20 miles distant flrom market) the same
day; v hile with a bad road, taking the same
weight, would require several days, be
sides great wear and tear of horses, and
wagons, and harness; ir fact, leaving actu
ally little return after deducting expenses.
This is no fanciful calculation; it has been
fully proved. This improvement will bring
up the value of farms within reachof mar
kets, which have been greatly depressed
by the low price of land at the West. The
convenience of getting the produce of the
farm to marker, will enable the farmer of
the Ease better to compete with the farmer
of the West, although the cost of land is
so much less at the West. The expense
of distant transportation will serve to con -
firm tho value of farms near the great mar
kets. Our .new States. uutil they have
more money, should go to work construct

between the city of Schenectady and the
village of Saratoga Springs, passing by
the village of Ballston Sp-t. If ihe mate
tials can be procured ih season, the calc
latio*t is to have the road built and ready
in tim i for the pleasure travel of the pres
ent year. s,) that travellers from all q-jar
ters of our land can carry home accounts
(of it. This road will pass throti2h a coun
try fir the most part very beautiful. It is
contempiated to have spacious omnituses
to run in connection with the Albany and
Schenectady railroad, and the White Hall
railroad, so that passengers cati pass over
ihe road in I wd hours, and to or from Al
bany in three hoors or less. Arrangements
will probably ie mare to ticket passengers
througi from New York,or from Saratoga
via Albtny toNew York. so that no care
need be taken aboit luggage until it is de
posited at the hotels at the Spring*, or on
arrival it New York. Those that travel
with the- ladies will find great relief in
having the care of luggage taken from
them by such an ar.angenent. In the
drvest season there is little or no dust to
ini:ommode the traveller on plantkroads.
FTe press cantnot be too) diligent itn cal

common roads execrable, they w'ill be oh

Some fear has been expressed thtat the
timber of thte contry would be exhtatttetd
by the rage for plank roads, buL suect will
not be thte case. These roads will be cotn
structed so as .o lead to thtose districts
where the timber is now ready, but of little
or no value to any one, or the l(no on
which it grows, ont account of the expense
of gettiang it to market. These piank roads

Accordinigly the miller was chiosen in.
A s soon as thfe.cler,k of the court had
given them-all their oaths, .a little dex

anid sliped ten golden sovereIgns into tli'
hands of thieeleven jurymen, but gave
the miller but five. He observed that

and said to higs next neighbor ,in a soft
whisper, "HIow much have- you got 7"
"Ten pieces,'esaid lie.
Hie concealed -what hre had' himself.
The caise was opened by the plaintiff's
counsel,.and.all the scraps of evidence
they could fishbup were adduced in his
fa.or. The y6unger brother was pro
vided with a-gi.entinumber of witunesses,
all bribed as well as the jaldge. They
deposed that they were in the self-same
country wvheihe.brother died and saw
himbturied. The-counsellor argued upon
tis accuinulated .evidenze, and every
thinf went with a full tide in favor of
the younger brother.
The judge said~ 'gentlemen,- are you

"We are agreed my lord," replietd one;
"our foremn shiall.speak for us."
.".Hold, my lo'rd," re plied the miller,
"we are not a!! agreed." -"Why," said
the jndge in avery surly manner, "what's

"I have several rraons, my lold."

given me only five; besides I have my I
objections to make against the false rea

dinar.y eviden6e of the witnesses.",
Opon this, the miller began a discourse, r
that discovered such vast penetration of
judgment, such extensi-ve law, and 'ex- v
pressed with such eloquence, as to as- %
tonish the judge and the whole cotr_l. b
As he was going on with his powerful tl
denionstiation, the judge in great sur- p
prise stopped- d
"Where did you come from and who
are you?" "I cqme from Westminster n
