' It is well known to most of those who will
read this article that the place mentioned at
its head, stands at the foot of the Rapids of
the Maumee River, and opposite the town of
Perrysburgh. Maumee City, or Maumee, ns
it has long been called is the oldest town upon
the Maumee River, having been inhabited long
befuro Perrysburg, Toledo, or Manhattan
deed had there never been a spirit abroad in
the earth, known as the fever of speculation,
it is very doubtful, if a part at least, of the
iibovc named places would have had an exis
tence. At the time when that grasping and
energetic nation; the French, conceived the
magnificent project of monopolizing to them-.
selves the trade of those tribes of Indian
wjio then inhabited the whole of the great
valleys of the Ohio, and Mississippi rivers,
an1 in the furtherance of their undertaking
cstal i hed a cordon of poets military and tra
cing, from Canada to tho Gulf of Mexico,
Maumee became ono of those important posts,
having been chosen for its accessible position
from the Lake, as well as fur its proximity to
numerous tribes of Indians who resided upon
tha fertile bottoms of the Maumee river, and
its tributary streams. To this post came the
1 irge trading vessels of the French, making
their customary visits for the purpose of car
rying away tho rich cargoes of furs and pel
tries, and of supplying the residents of tho
fort with their necessary stores, both for de
fence and trade, and to this pi tee they came,
because on account of the rapidity and shal
lowness of the river they were unaLle to go
higher; while, at the same time the channel
to Maumee has always been sufficient for the
vessels used fr the navigation of Lako Erie,
and the adjacent waters. ;
Undor the capituhtion at Montreal in the
year 100, this important post, together with
several others was ceded by the French to
Great Britain, and Maumee became a military
and trading poet belonging to the British Gov
ernment, and was, as such, attacked and ta
ken by the Indians under 1'ontiac, in May in
the year JiO'l, and retaken by the British un
der Gen. Uradttrect, during the same year.
. The American Revolution terminated in the
recognition of the independence of the United
States, nt which time it was undoubtedly ex
pected that the British garrisons would have
been removed from 'within the lines. This
seems, however, to have been but partially the
the case, for in r,90, we . find the Fort at
Maumee garrisoned by a company of British
soldiers. The importance of this post seems
to have been well understood by all parties
who hive ever striven for, or held possession
of it. " Situated at the head of navigation of
the finest stream of the north west opening
a large and luxuriantly fertile country, capa
ble of sustaining a dense- population being
the military centre of the. whole surrounding
country, its choice seems to have been dicta
ted by consummate judgment,- and its value,
by all parties fully understood, and appreciated.
On the 30th day of August, 194, the whole
of the town of Maumee, in the neighborhood
of the fort was destroyed by tho Americans
, under Gen. Wayne, and from that time to the
close of the last war? Maumee was the scene
of either open warfare, or border skirmishing,
having been successively occupied and claim
ed by both parties. : .; ;V.. V , V
? "ircseat'Maumee pressw but little re-
semblance to its ancient form. The fort has
been . drawn away to' fill the wharves of our
citizens the pickets have been converted in
to 6rcwood the mo it is fast filling np, and all
the traces with which war once furrowed the
land, are nearly obliterated. ' But in the place
of mementoes of ancient warfare, we have
the smiling fruits of peace in abundance. '' A
town numbering more than a thousand inhab
tants; rich, commercial and manufacturing es
tablishments; an investment of capital in com
mercial pursuits sufficient for all future exi
gencies a population enterprising and ener
getic in the extreme, and all the elements of a
large and flourishing city.
THE WABASH AND KRIE CANAL. '
WhiTe the several towns upon the Mau
mee River -are claiming for themselves the ben-
efits which are to accrue from the trade of tho
Wabash and Erie Canal, it cannot be unfit
ting for us, modestly to urge our chiins in that
matter, setting furth,- at the same time, the
reasons which induce us to believe that a part
at least, of that immense trade, which is to
flow through that great nrtery the Mmimee
Volley will come to, and benefit the citizens
of our flourishing town. In the first plice,
we are pi iced so fir out of the course of tha'
part of the trade of the grent west, which is
to be carried on by the way of Detroit and the
upper Lakes, that our business must be done
by vessels making this river the terminating
point of their voyage, 'I Lis will lead the bu
siness men of tho upper Maumee to rely pure
ly upon their own resources. In the shipping
business, the happy effects of which reliance
are beginning even now to be felt at the towns
at tho fuot of the rapids. In the next pi ice,
it is proved by the experience of a century
as well as by every day's observation, that
vessels suitable for the carrying trado of
Lake Erie, can come up to the wharves of the
sever il towns nt tha foot of the rapids, and
that toe with greft ease and facility, and that
there aro neves' wanting vessels to do the
whole business of those towns.
Again. Every day's experience proves to
us that goods m iy be transported from Buffi-
lo to M lumoe City, at the same prices per ton
or per barrel, fur which thev are cirriej to
Manhattan or Toledo, thsreby making u sav
ing to tha slrppoM of goods to tha west, of
the cost of at least fifteen miles of canal nav
igation, with its tolls.
Tho competition between tho towns above
and those telow then, is reduced to a compar
ison between transportation on a canal, and
transportation on a river navigible to all in
tents and purposes of commerce, and it would
be just as preposterous to assert that the goods
destined, for the upper Wabash and Maumee
Vallies are to be re-shipped at Manhattan or
beside a navigible river, as it would be to sup
pose that 'Maumee and Perrysburgh are to
receive their grot's ly the tame chin
nel.when they hiva afljet of stoim'mta and
schooners lying at their wharves, as they have
at present,. , Citizen Genet proposed to the
Legislature of New York, to construct a ca
rJjiKmM Albany to the city of New York, nnd
reWcjrirt now sometimes thought expedient
by that body to authorize the construction of
such a; canal from Albany to some point lower
down the river; but while these things nrei
agitation, the business is perceptibly removing
up stream from Albany to Troy, in spito of the
impediments to the navigation, and in a very
few years undoubtedly the greater part of the
business of the Erie Canal will be done at
Troyj carried there by the 6aving which is
made in tolls and transportation on the best
canal in the world,,
The towns at the foot of the rapids, have
also tho ad vantage of those below in the prox
imity of their navigable water to those pi ices
where .the river' can be bridge.! with safety
and withotirinjiiry to navigation. This can
not bui have its effect in bringing great public
improvements, ss turnpikes, and rail roads to
these places. The impossibility of bridging
the difficulty of ferrying the certiintyof
trans-sphipment, nnd the total prevention of
the ability of crossing the river tor frequently
long periods every season, must present an in
surmountable okctaclelothe termination of any
such public work at any place below the fuot
of the rapids. '
With regard to our means f r commercial
transactions produced by tho Wabash and Eric
Canal, we can siy that at the least we are pit
cod, on as favorable ground ns any of ou
neighbors, having a termination equal un
doubtedly as favorable to us as any that will be
made. 1 his being the case we say, and bidd
ly .that Maumee is ths siraa terminition ofthe
Wabath and Erie Canal; and such being the
case, we have nothing to foar in the great
competition which is to arise for the trade of
tho great West.
""The Monroe Bank, has taken advantags of
a provision in its charter, and has suspended
payment.,for sixty days. Its' officers express
the belief , that the stoppagj is only . tem
porary and that in a few days, the bank will
be enabled to commence operations, without
daiiger of another suspension. ;? The circula
tion of the Monroe Bank has not in any great
ddgree extended beyond its immediate neigh
borhood, which is undoubtedly the reason
why, on any sudden panic, so large an amount
df the bills are suddenly thrown back upon the
Institution. A state of facts under which any
similar institution would undoubtedly suffer. -..-

-The Steamboat Cincinnati left the port at

We publish to-day, the Inaugttral Address
of President Van Buren. .The readers there
of, have as good an opportunity to judge of
its merits, as we, ourselves.. It is true, that
we cannot see that the President has commit
ted himself upon any great constitutional
question, but still, perhaps he judged cor
rectly, in refraining from argument upon such
an occasion. ' In the course of four years, he
will have a sufficient opportunity to make bis
principles manifest. ' '

We understand that it is intended by the
proprietors, to run the Steamboat Phenome
non between this pi ice and Manhattan, the
ensuing season. Tho Phenomenon has been
fitted up during the past winter, and the
Dowerof her enirine has been increased. An
arrangement of this kind will be very conven
ient for the public, as well as beneficial to the
Newspapers. The price of weekly news
papers has heretofore been far below a living
profit. We percoivo that the editor of the
Miami of the Lake has taken a correct ttand
in this matter. lie has raised the price of his
paper to what it should be, and announces his
determination to abandon the business, rather
than continue at former prices. The great
rise , of every article in trade is assigned as
the principal reason for this change in the
terms. It is correct, newspaper proprietors
generally will have to fullow suit, or abandon
It is said that the Oil of Indian Corn is
used in Cincinnati, as a substitute for sperm

On Saturday night last, Gen. Ilernnn

there is a great deal of dissentiou in the
nation. The Chiefs arc willing to give
up, hut the young warriors are averse
to it ; that they have plenty of ammuni
