If this subject lias hitherto excited but little or no interest among the people of this s ; ate, it is lj because tiie nature and extent of the British claim lias not until lateh been generally understood, and we apprehend is not now understood so generally as it deserves to be. The British claiui by a line drawn from Mars Hill to the Katahdin. and Iroin the Katahdin by a line drawn along between the heads of the streams which empty into the i'etiob scot and those which empty into the St. Johns, un til it strikes the dividing line between Maine and Lower Canada. If the reader will look at the map he will see that it cuts off from Maine a territory equal to the whole of Massachusetts. The land it self, it is said, exceeds in fertility any tract of equal size within New England. liere then is the ter ritory, capable of sustaining a population of half a million; within the rightful jurisdiction of Maine, which we are in danger of having wrested irotn us forever. Our title to this country, we sa v, is as clear and indisputable as it is to any other part of the state.— The British may uxteiui their claims to the Kene bee on the same grounds precisely that they claim to the Penobscot ; and if we yield to this we cannot know what pretences will be set up afterwards.— The treaty of 171)3 establishes our boundary too clearly to be misunderstood, except by tlisue who are determined not to understand it. The treaty is so explicit that the people of this state have never supposed that it could be brought into doubt, and it is with us much surprise as indignation, that they have seen the natureaud extent of the British claim, But if the attention of the people has been less directed to this subject than its importance deserves, their feelings will be aroused, by an event that has recently occurred, ttt such a manner that they will not be "easily quieted. Mr. John Baker, cable citizen of this state, in s House, Mr. John Baker, a pea cable citizen of this state, occupying a farm which he holds under ajoint grant from .Massachusetts and Maine, has been arrested within our own territorial jurisdiction by the officers of the province of New Brunswick, accompanied as we have understood, by an armed force, and car ried to Frcderickton, to answer to the British King. We have recently learnt that he has been tried, con victed and sentenced to pay aline ol £150, or SonO, and to be, imprisoned for six months, and that lie is actually incarcerated under the sentence of the [Portland Argus. ally the wi now court in Frcdorickton jail. of ty ty Extract of a letter from an American gentleman at present, traveling in England , dated Sept. 30th. •• A few days since I visited the Tunnel under the Thames, which is one of the most gratifying curiosi ties l have seen in London. It is about three indes below Ihe London bridge, and on the Kent, side of the river. We first descended the shaft, a tremen dous cavity in the earth, about one hundred feet deep ; and then proceeded through one of the ar ched carriage ways, which was bountifully lit up with gas. We passed to the extreme end, where the workmen are employed, which is 565 feet from the shaft, and of course a considerable distance un der the river, and which I believe to be about half wav across. As yet they have not recommenced their work of boring, but they expect to do so in a le v days, as the break in the river is completely stopped, and the Tunnel free from water. 'Tiie Steam Engine down the shaft, draws away the dirt in carts, as fast as the workmen till the o by the oth er Arch way, which is laid with a Rail Road. I have .rreat confidence in its success, for what is there that men cannot do, when tiiey have at their disposal plenty uf money, and plenty of force. On the same day we visited the Tower, and in spected every thing it contained.

Stoves .—It has been a desideratum with house keepers, to find some plan by which they could com bine the comfort of a teu-plate stove and the econo my of anthracite coal. It we are not deceived, two ingenious mechanics have succeeded in supply ing tins want. We called in at the foundry, No. 5Ö4 Market street, yesterday,and saw in full ope ration a very simple contrivance, but one calculated to effect much good. It consisted of an iron box, with a grate bottom, slid into tne furnace or body of a common ten plate stove—the outward end comple tely closing the entrance, excepting an appei-tun- iu the lower part of the box to admit a draft of air.
