Tracy, Traveling Agent. ~ t’OMM INK'ATIONS. Oar Eastern Frontier. To the Editor qf the Prt IS : Public attention has been called to this sulyeel of late, in connection with that of our national coast and frontier defenses. It is proposed iu this short article to pre sent some facts on the subject, relating to the enterprise which was before our last Legisla ture, known as tbe “bill for the incorporation of the Milford aud Princeton Turnpike Com pauy." About the loth of last November the Ban gor Llaily Whig published an article, slating that on the II tit of that month, the well known Surveyor, Mr. John Gardner, with five assistants, had started from Princeton on the waters of the St. Croix in the prosectuion of the survey for the location of the new route from that point to the Milford depot on the waters of the Penobscot. It wits remarked that it was a (act worthy of notice that the people of Eastern Marne thoroughly appre ciated the importance of the undertaking, which was evident by the promptness with which individual citizens had subscribed to defray the expense of said survey. A party of several gentlemen had recently gone over the ground exploring the country, aud had fouud it an excellent section of set tling lands for farming purposes, aud one of the gentlemen (a member of the last Legis lature ) wlio had had much experience in such ^matters, remarked that iu his opinion, there could not in the interior of New England be fouud the like distance of about fitly miles, where the abseuce of water (and that too iu a well watered country) aud evenness of surlace in an almost direct line would render the con struction of a turnpike or railroad so feasible. Some of the local reasons for such a great way were spokeu of in the article referred to, such as consolidation of interests iu busiuess atul other relations, dispatch aud ease in travel, and the matter of shortening the mail route, which is a very great consideration for the whole Stale. More than twenty hours are cousumed iu carrying the mail from Bangor to Calais; let this route be opeued by a turn pike, aud it will take but twelve hours, and should a railroad connection be formed, some six hours may be deducted from that, add to\ this, the very large amount of business and travel which will now over this road to aud from the Eastern provinces through the State. The survey was promptly completed by Mr. . Gardner, and some important facta wcie elic ited showing conclusively that the route is highly practicable. It is remarkably free from hills, the highest elevation, and that a very gradual one, is not above scventy-ltve feet; the longest water course to be bridged is not more than one hundred feet, and that of shoal water not deepeT than three to four feet. By far the larger part ol the laud isexeelleut quality for farming purposes; the route would devel op aud bring into market a tine portion of un til now, unoccupied land; (a glance at the map will show a distance of about one third tile length of the Slate, East and West) the opening of this great way would induce set tlement, and iu a short time largely augment the valuation of the State, by the improve ments, labor aud wealth of a growing popula tion, where now between Millord add Prince ton on the Penobscot and .St. Croix rivers is almost au unbroken wilderness. The plan of the survey was presented to our last Legislature, together with a petition _ Signed uy between three and tour hundred I ~ citizens of Calais and vicinity, and another with the names of two hundred of the solid men of Bangor, askiug for Stale atd to the I amount of $40,060, which would construct an excellent road from Bangor to Calais, biking into consideration the fact, that from Bangor to Milford on the Penobscot, and from Calais to Princeton on the St. Croix,railroads are now completed and in operation, Tlte bill to incorporate the Milford and Princeton Turnpike Company was passed. There may he some question as to the wisdom of that policy, especially if the Stale is asked to build the entire road, for the aggrandize ment of a few individuals who constitute themselves a company while the bulk of the petitioners ask only Ibr aid for a public way. On examination of the hill it may lie found that the State is placing itself in a similar po sition to that of the State of New Jersey with Iter notorious railroad monopoly, which oblig es the traveling public to endure the worst railroad between Bangor and Washington. The bill to grant aid to said company was referred to the proper committees on Frontier and Coast Defences, who after carefully and patiently hearing representations, and what some considered misrepresentations respect ing the practicability and necessity of the road, probably in view of the prevailing sen timent throughout the Legislature, not to ap propriate State funds at this time of national |H'ril, with the debt for the support of tlte war likely to he increased, reported further legisla tion to the next Legislrture, while at the same time the enterprise was- looked favorably up on by a very large marjority of the members. Washington, which is the eastern frontier county.shows a population of 40,631, with a State valuation of *7,216,400. Are not these amounts ol population and property entitled to the sober consideration ol our State? It is confidently expected that the next Legislature will promptly move in this mat ter towards the speedy completion of the road. These remarks refer only w the local and State interest in the case. Many more and weightier reasons may be adduced, showing tile necessity of this road in a national view. Peabody. The Late Passage of the Rappahannock. Corrttponilence of the A". }'. Tribune. A it my of the Potomac, Jinf, 5.1863. Biding to Falmouth Station this morning, I observed when in the neighborhood of the “ Wallace House,” a short distance beyond tlte old head quarters of Gen. Hooker, that some of our pontoon trains were moving toward the river. On reaching the station I heard any number of rumors to the efloct that our army was to cross during the day ; that our cavalry had already forded the stream, and still later that they were in possession of the heights beyond Fredericksburg—all of these having their origin in a statement made by i 15® balloon, to 1 lie effect that no camps were J visible over the river: that the .enemy had | evacuated their stronghold—they had “Folded their U»ut« like the Arab.**, Aud as silently passed away.” Later another rumor reached me that the bridges were completed and some of our troops had crossed. Hiding to Falmouth aud the river hank opposite Fredericksburg I dis covered the pontoon 1 suits lying idle in the s in, and the Hebei pickets stronger than 1 bad ever seen them. Hut what had become of the artillery 1 had seen, moving during the fore noon ? These brazen throats had not yet re vealed their whereabouts. Concluding that the balloon must have been wrong in its state ments, or that Gen. Hooker had reason to doubt its veiacity, 1 resolved, as the day was far spent, to go home and await the coming of events. At the moment of arriving there 1 heard the sound of guns far distant, and with an appetite for something to write about, shar|icned by a lohg-contiiiued period of fast ing in this respect, F rode off, determined to discover what the tiring meant. 1 turned my horse in the direction of Fitz Hugh House, a large brick mansion facing the river, used by us as a hospital.aud after a sharp ride of about 15 minutes reached there, ami to my surprise saw before me only the green valley looking almost as on many a Sabbath afternoon it must have looked before the war. A man stood by a tree looking through a tel escope, and to my question, “Is Sedgwick crossing?" came the thrilling answer: “He is, sir.” “Where?” I asked. “Yonder.” I looked, and off in the direction of Fred ericksburg, in some broad fields on our side the stream, I beheld a sea of gray-blue smoke, saw sudden (lashes come fiom it, and curliug clouds, whiter and paler than the rest, float off and vanish, and following each flash, I heard the dull, far-away thunder of artillery. The sky above was covered with dark rain-clouds wove into anaintiuilude of purple shades, reaching away to the horizon, where a lielt of sat!roil formed a glowing background to the rebel hills looming grand and sullen in the distance. Wishing to gain a nearer view of what oc curred, I rode rapidly in the direction of the contest, taking a shott cut across fields and along by-paths. At length I reached a hill above where our artillery was posted, affording a iiiagnitieent view of the whole scene. Our troops (the 2d Division of the (Itli Corps, Brig. lien. A. 1*. Howe) were resting in the plain below, while our artillery, there also, was engaged in throwing shells with uner ring accuracy at a line of Hebei rifle-pits;you could sec every one of them burst above it, and hear their shrill whistle as they blew through the air. Still the butternuts lurked within. There was a stir among our troops in the fields below me. and a regiment on the “double quick" started for the river. It is the 5th Vermont boys from the Green Mountain State. Tills was wliat is called Franklin’s Crossing. Over they went in the boats. “They'll clean 'em out." I heard whispered all round. Straight for the rifle-pit they made, charging it, and out went “Johnny Hob," run ning fur dear life, some back toward the Bow ling Green road, but most of them to the left, where stands the “Biruard House.” At these our pickets let fly, and a well directed shot from one of our guns bursts right among them, killing or wounding two, for you could son t ho in f-i 11 Then our men followed them close up. Hank ing and Dually surrounding the Barnard house where the " liebs" took rei'uge. A few volleys ensued: hut soon thu enemy gave it up, and surrendered themselves. Before duskthedark uniforms of our men could be distinguished be yond the Bowling Green Road, about a mile and a half out from the river, and at this house several regiments had crossed, formed in line of battle, and were marching to the support or our ; skirmishers. Night came at last, and with it every thing became quiet. To-morrow will de- i cide whether Lee's army lias gone to succor Vicksburg, or is lying in wait beyond the al ready historic hills of Fredericksburg. Where is Febxanim) he Xoronha? The just conduct of the Brazilian official, by the commands of his government, in ordering away the “Alabama" from Fernando de Xor onha, lias caused some to inquire the where abouts of tliis place. Fernando de Xoronha is the principal Island of a group belonging to Brazil, and lies about 220 miles northeast of Cape St. Roque, in south latitude 3 deg. 56 min. It is about twenty miles in circumfer ence, i? uspd as a Botany Bay by the Brazilian Government, and is a most picturesque object, w ilii its mountain peaks and varied bead-lauds. This Island has been repeatedly under the do minion of Portugal, Holland and France, be fore Brazil achieved her independence. The island has two harbors, but neither of them sale during a storm. It has for ages been oc cupied solely a> a place of exile and imprison ment. Seven forts were erected upon it in the days of Portuguese wealtli and power. A small garrison is always stationed there to keep in subjection the malefactors. Xo wo man is allowed to visit the Island, and the greater portion ol the provisions come from Pernambuco. It was to this place that the leaders of thu infamous rebellion ( whicli en deavored to cause Northern Brazil to recede in 1835,) were sent. The “Alabama " was here in the norrowest part of the Atlantic, where she could see almost every vessel whielt sailed around the Cape of Good Uo|>e or Caiie Horn. There are only altout 1000 miles between Fer nando de Xoronha iiud the nearest point ol the African shore, and every vessel coming from the East Indies or California is compelled by the course of the trade winds, to pass within a day s sail of the Island.—[X. 5 . Journal of Commerce. Tub Uebei. Defences at Pout Hthson. The water defences of Port Hudson are said to consist of eight batteries, numbering be tween twenty and thirty guns. One of these batteries is stationed on a bluff eighty feet high. Another is planted just below the mouth of Thompson’s Creek. The most of the guns are 24 s, 32's and 42's, but there are one or two 120-pouuders. The land defenses were chiefly built alter the advance of the Federal forces to Baton Rouge. They mount in ail some thirty or forty guns, some of them of heavy caliber, and in addition to these there are at least four Held batteries which can be readily moved to any part of the works. The position seems to lie entirely inclosed in a se ries ol fortifications of the most elaborate and formidable character, but whether there are any interior lines remains to be revealed. The probability, however, is that the rebels would scarcely rely on a single line, and that the ex terior intrenchmcnts include several others, as was found to he the case at Vicksburg. | Removal !
