I )»: tilt AM, Mass. September 21,—A gentleman
who bus recently returned from an excursion
through Connecticut, states that from bis observa
tions bo ia fully convirtfed that Ibe eiiliurc and
manufacture of sHknmst liecotoe a staple and prof
iliiblc business in Now England—tho climate and
soil being well adapted in Ihe growth of tho mill
berry treo, and tho genius and enterprise of Ihe
inhabitants equal lu the task of producing silk
goods superior to the imported. Connecticut pays
to her sons a bounty of fifty cents per pound on
all silk reeled on tlie unproved plan, and one dol
lar on every one bundled mulbciry trees act out in
the manner prescribed, 'fins example of the wood
en nutmeg lady is worthy of being followed—and
we would (ay to her sister Massachusetts, »Go
thou, and do likewise."
Stimulated by lliu cucouragement received frojn
•be Slain, the single town of Mansfield has, from »
careful estimate grown four ton* of raw silk this ma
son, which, when reeled, will bring almui $35.000
—snd when thrown into sewing [as nmat
probably will be, in Ihe families of ihe producers,]
its value will lie enhanced to neatly double that
sum, say $60,0001 Four or five adjoining towns
have, from fair estimates, each produced a qaiinlily
equal to that grown in Manafield. It is not doubt
oil that another year the stock will lie increased
onn third. A Connecticut farmer calculates that
one acre of land well slocked with mulberry trees
is wortli forty-nine acre» of the rest of hm form! ]
The business of silk growing, then, muai lie
profitable! but our fanners ore «feierred from em
barking m it, because some time and money must
be spent in Ihe outset, without affording iiotnedi
ale profit. To meet this difficulty the slate should
offer some ancon rage incut to indheo people to be
gtn—-and once begun, yaukne industry would lie
side to compete with the world in the culture. If
government manages rightly, it cannot be doubted
that ten years lienee, more than one hundred tons
of raw silk will be annually raised in this country.
Will not Hits quantity invite artisans and manufiic
turcr»f and may we not conclude that the lime is
not far distant when tlie fieople of this western
tment will bo clad in silken robes of their
man to bo gening an
honest living. How call I lx- guilty, yer honor,

Mr. Hicks introduced a resolution requiring the
