Committee. — — " T- - “The Fertile Bell.’' At the present rate of admitting States into the Union, Uncle Sam must soon ait him down on the shores of the Pacific, or of Lake Superior, and weep because there are no morn territories to organize. The distress of the national Alexander will be more keen than his historic prototype’s, bee ause there are fair domains with in easy reach which be is for bidden by the troublesome regulations of modern civilization to grasp. He cannot ob tain them by purchase and to take them by violence he is ashamed, If not afraid. There fore, unless something unexpected occurs, and that speedily, he will soon he past the heyday of youth and must settle down, like any re spectable elderly individual, with all his chil dren grown up aud married, leaving him nothing to do but to go into that decline which ever attends upon ancient respects Witty. But there is one delectable little morsel ol North America, not much larger than one half of Europe, which will occasion a sharp conflict in the national mind before the idea of letting it remain forever under the control of England, or a sleepy old corporation like the Hudson’s Bay Company, can be folly en tertained. This is what is called- Kuperv* Land, comprising the fertile belt of country between Canada and British Columbia. Travelers describe the fertility and beamy of this region as equaling that of our own West ern States. Bat unfortunately, being owned in fee simple by the Hudson's Bay Company, to which in 1080 tbe Merry Monarch trans ferred it, tor the annual tribute of “ two elks and two black beavers whensoever and as often as we, our heirs and successots, shall happen to enter into these said territories, countries and regions,” it 1* not open to emigration or im provement. It is in the hands of one of those grand old English monopolies, which make our Camden and Am boys seem like Inconsid erable tbree-penny affairs in comparison with their greater altitudes. It Is the sole surviving brother of the defuuct East India Company. Till near the beginning of the present ceu tury its profits were enormous, sometimes rising as high as sixty or seveuty per cent., the reservation of the ‘'two elks and two beavers” having been made, it must be, in one of King Cbaiies’ merriest and most liberal moods. Since 1783, when its preserves were entered by a formidable rival corporation, the North West Fur Com pany, the dividends have not been so larae. The shares are selling at a figare consul erably below par. The affairs of the Com pany might be bi ought back to their oi l con dition of prosperity if the forty millions of acres of “as good land as lies out ol doors’1 could be put into the market. It is estimated that sales could now be made at $1 25 per acre, and in a few years at $10 or $15 per acre. But the proceedings of an old and wealthy monopoly are as Illiberal and stupid as those of a Democratic convention. The old Hudson’s Bay corporators would sell no land, and why should their successors try to improve upon “established regulations" and the “wisdom of our ancestors”? But while the proprietors of tbe Fertile Belt are studying, in their English way, “how not to do it,” the hardy and Irrepressible frontiers men ot Minnesota and Dakota are actimi, in their American way, and doing it. They have reached the Western limit of arable land in the Northern part of the United Stales; so they disregard the invisible line which separ ates them from the pleasant fields belonging to Her Majesty’s subjects. They find there only a diinutive colony of about ten thousand people, at the point where the Assmiboine joins the Red River of the North before it reaches Great Winnipeg Lake. Destiny seems to have given it into their hands. It is not easily accessible from anv part of the Domin ion of Canada, and it seems inevitable that it must be settled by emig rants from the United States.— This Northward movement of the Western pioneers is not unobserved by the English people, and it lias already awakened their jealousy. During the first session of the for tieth t ongress, Gen. Hanks proposed to pur chase Rupert's Land from the Hudson's Hay Company and divide it into two territories, with the ultimate view ol making them Slates. The proposition was not lavoi dily received, but it basso exi Led the ferns of a writer in tlie last number ol the Westminster Review ♦lii*t lie calls ii|sm Parliament to cancel the charier which legalizes the “Last Great Mon "Mj," in order that the emigration of Bril i-h subjects to the banks of the Saskateha wan and Led rivers may lie encouraged. In this way he Lopes to have the unsettled coun try between Canada and British Columbia (dlod up so that the new Dominion may final ly extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and put an end to American dreams ol an nexation. The “ Buiroaa” or Blueberry Plains of A correspondent of the New York Times’ writing from Mount Desert, gives a very In terns! ins' description of the Blaeberry Plains in the County ot Washington that lie be tween the Narraguagus and Machias rivets The territory embracing them is large, lieing about :rjj square miles, and embraces tracts oi' lands in j Cberryfield, DeJdin ’ton, Colum bia, Deifiois, Township No. 18 and part of Township No. 10 “Nowhere,” says the writ er, “ in the United States do blueberries grow so spontaneous or so plenty as here.” These plains are called '‘Barrens,” on account of the poor quality ol the soil. The land is broken by high hills,ruuning streams, beautiiul ponds and embryo fbrertB, but the general character of the country lor twenty-live miles around is level. It is hut sparsely settled and generally occupied by a shiftless aimless people. The town of Cherry field on the western edge, on tbc hanks of the Narraguagus is a ilourishiug place and forms an exception to the general character of the “blue” region. The united population of the Barrens is less than two thousand, and Cberryfield has a population of about eighteen hundred. “Give me then,” exclaims this correspondent, “the bluebeiry plains of Maine for a location in which to become isolated; no better spot was ever Invented in which to study the solitude of nature.” Twenty years ago nobody thought of picking bluebenies on this great tract only for liome consumption How tens of thou" sands ol bushels are collected tor export. The yield, year after year, Is wonderful—instead of decreasing it increases. Men of capital are engaged in the business* and many a snug fortune lias been made from the product of these plains, The first appearance of the fruit is the signal for a general “turnout” of “pickers” from the surrounding ‘owns. The “old hoss” Is harnessed and men, women and children flock to the grounds. Large parties are form ed and w hole families turn out lor a share in the spoils. On these occasions business and pleasure are happily combined. People come mrre than twenty miles’antl camp out on the Darrens. There are many places where the berries are “scraped in,” and, here the pick ers most do congregate. One might think there was a c impmeeting on the ground, so many tents are erected. The scene is very lively. The collection of vehicles of every description, the curling smoke of the eauip tires and the buzz of voices of both sexes only interrupted by the ringing laughter and shouting of children are suggestive of a live , ly time and they have it This corespond ent says: The quantity of fruit gathered per day by a siagle picker is surprising. An expert can show from fifty to sixty quarts as the result of his or ber day’s work. Forty quarts is an av erage day’s work. A family of four or live I>ersons have been known to gather eight bnshels in a single day, yielding $10 in uion 1 cy. Many of the frequenters ot the “barrens” pick berries for money, being employed by store-keepers In the “village” for that pur pose. At tbe rate ot five or six cents per qt. a good sum is realized during the season, whether it be in “store-pay” or otherwise. Most of tbe Iruit is shipped from Machias1 Jonesport and other places to Bangor, and thence it is shipped to Ibis city and Boston.— The principal canning facte ties are at Mill bridge, Sullivan and Qouldsboro. It is esti mated that 1U0,0U0 bushels weie gathered last year, and this season they are even more abnmiaut. r.-mt, summer more than $60,000 were realized from these bawns> to say no thing of other sections of the State wIku« the fruit is found In great abundance.
