INDIANA ITS PHYSICAL ASPECT. The State of Indiana next to Ohio is re markable for its natural advantages for Agri culture and Internal Trade. Neither Ohio nor Indiana, are as various in surface, soil, and cli mate, as Tennessee, which has all the varieties of plants and atmosphere, which range from the cold air of the Cumberland mountains, to the sunny regions of the Cotton boll of the Mis sissippi. But, both Ohio and Indiana, have an aggregate of agricultural riches, greater than those of Tennessee. Indiana is inferior to Ohio in Mineral sources, and in lake trade, two cir cumstances which, in addition to its fertile soil, has made Ohio the first of Western States. But Indiana has some remarkable features, and we shall note two or three, as interesting in their relation to Western Commerce, and the Future Progress of our country. In the first place: Indiana is grossly mis named; it should have been called the State or Wabash. This is an original name, like Ohio, but it has a claim on other grounds, which is almost inevitable. The Wabash river, in pro portion to its volume, irrigates more land than almost any other stream, which can be found. The Wabash and its tributaries, water nearly two thirds of all the counties of Indiana! Of eighty-eight counties in thisState.no less than FirrT-riVE are watered by the Wabash river! In estimatimating the value of rivers, it is quite common to consider only, or chiefly, their navigable or commercial advantages; but this is a very erroneous method of estimating their value. The greatest value of a water course, is its power of irrigation. The springs of the earth as in ancient Syria, in the timesof Abra ham and Jacob will supply water for the use of man and beast. Horses, Mules, and, in modern times, Railroads, will supply the means ol commercial inter-communication. JJut, nothing bat a river, and its tributaries, can suf ficiently irrigate and fatten the soil for great crops. Jxkk at the JNile! Its value for ship ping or boats, is very little, but its annual over flow creates the wealth of Egypt! So, look at the Wabash, windingits way, from Jay coun ty, on the Eastern line, to Posey in the South West! Look at Tippecanoe. Eel. Salamonic. Mississinewa, and White rivers, all tributaries of the Wabash, fertilizing an immense extent of country! Except the main branch of the Wabash, these streams are impracticable for navigation, but of in-stimable value to the soil and production of the State. A large number of the counties, which lie on the tributaries of Um Wabash, are yet com paratively new and uncultivated; but whose population and production, in a future time, must be very great. Of the remaining counties, the Ohio river waters 14 White Water 4 Kankahee (a brnnch of the Illinois) 3 Maumeeof the lakos 3 Lake Erie andtribuary, the St. Joseph's 7 Thus we see the State of Indiana is finely irrigated; and, that, when reduced to proper cul tivation its Agricultural must be very great. In a commercial point of view, a ccastof three hundred miles on the Ohio river, and of fiftv on Lake Michigan, afford ample outlets, both JMorth and south. Hie internal communica tions which the State requires, are those which will connect it at Cincinnati, Madison, and Evansville, on the Ohio Michigan Citv on Lake Erie, and East and Vct Line, bu tlnU.- rvM. . The public men of Indiana have seen this, and, on nearly all these lines, have com pleted prepared Public Works. There are al ready, in the State, finished, or nearly finished, about four hundred miles of Canals, and sixty xniie s oi itoiiroacis. in trie great Scheming Era of 183-6-7, many other works were commenc ed, and great capital sunk in fruitless under takings. From that embarrassment, the State has nearly recovered, and the flourishing towns n the Wabash and Whitewater, and farmers of the interior, are looking forward to a con nection with Cincinnati, and through Ohio, w ith the Atlantic coast. The surface of Indiana is about 33,000 square miles containing about twenty-four millions of acres. It would maintain very easily, eight millions of people. On the supposition that one fourth part of tne state was cultivated in Indian Corn, one fourth in Wheat, and the remaining half left for pasture, woodland, &c, the products of Drcaustuiis would be something like this: Indian Corn bushels 200,000,000 Wheat do 50,000,000 Potatoes do 10,000,000 This looks, at first, a little astonishing; but it is much under what the State could easily produce. It would feed ten millions of peo ple, and leave a large surplus! This being the capacity, and not much be yond the probable results of Indiana produc tion, it behooves the commercial world to look a little into it. There are four outlets for In diana trade, viz: Cincinnati, Madison, Evans ville, and Michigan City, (or some point on the Lake.) The largest part of the trade of Indi ana must continue to flow to Cincinnati by reason of the magnitude, capital, and centrali ly of Cincinnati, and by reason also of the vast chain of Works of Internal Improvement, which now connects this City with the whole Northern Interior. The great object of Cincinnati, at present, in looking towards the West, is to strike, in aliterally direct line, the heart of the Wabash Valley. In this point of view, the various schemes for Railroad Improvements in that di rection should be well considered by the Com mercial community here. We have thrown out this bird's-eye glance at the Thysical of Indiana, that our readers mav have the most important facts immediate ly before them. CQT Iron Wire is now used in the construc tion of fences, and' the Westminster (Md.) Carroltonian gives the following description of the mariner in which it is adopted to this pur pose: "The posts are about one half the ordinary size, planted firmly at the distance of 10 feet apart, with 9 strands of wire drawn tightly through an half inch auger hole, and tightly plugged at each hole; the wire is of the size of that used for the handle of the Yankee bucket, and to combine them more firm, wire of a light er description is wound through the middle, which prevents the hogs from separating them, and creeping through. The whole expense of this fence does not exceed 25 cents per pannel of 10 feet; and for neatness and durability, cannot be surpassed by any thing in timber." A Serious Evil. A correspondent of the Chicago Journal is denouncing the armies of grasshoppers that are so abundant on the prai ries this season. They differ from the Europe an, being horse-headed, and winged like the African locust, and are the worst kind of those plagues. They are said to have increased very much within the last three years, and threaten to become a Teiy serious evil. The ra vases of these insects are some what mitigated by the havoc made among them by the prairie fowls, which eat them greedily, and thus destoy enormous numbers during the sea son, and prevent their increase to a proportion ate extent. It is recomended in reference to the usefulness of those birds in this particular, that the killing ol them should be prohibited by law until the harvest is ended say between February and September. 1 he grasshoppers have in time past caused the great calamities of famine and pestilence, in the old world. In July, A. D. 591 and 1543, they ravaged as if under military order, and 800,000 men perished by famine and the pesti lence, lbey wasted rauce A. JJ oii and when their leaders constantly flew a day be fore the host and marked the place to be de voured. These first appeared without wings, and lastly with four. They were blown into the English channel, and were thrown on the beach in such numbers that the stench caused a pestilence. Ihe immense extent ot our sou, its great productiveness and diversity of crops, would seem to forbid the possibility of a general fam ine ever happening in this favored land. But if such should ever be the case, it would most probably be brought about by the agency of these terrible scouges. DIED. On Saturday evening, 25th inst., Mr. Gardner Bowles.
