Are there no mt ,t!is of re ducing these [;reat disiances to almost nothing, with respect to the disadvantage to w hith they subject him ? '1 he answer plainly i.s, that il can be dune by a Canal or a Railroad. It may at fiisi scenn strange and extravagant to speak of an nihilating distance, between two places. It IS intpoi lant, however, that we sfiould f)ecome familiar with those modes, whicU lacilities in iravilling and conveyance proj)ose fordoing tins. You are in Ne\r Haven, and you have business w!iicli calls you to the city ol N. York, w htch is 85 miles distant. You go to the steam boat in ihe evening at 6 o’ clock, and step itilo* it. When bedtime comes, }ou lie down and sleej).on as good a bed as you waJit, atid the next morning you awakc at four o’clock with the intelligence that all you have lo do is to step nut of ihe boat into the city, attend to your business and then return home again by the same mt ans. Whai great difference it may l)0 asked, is there, so far as yourself alono are concerned, between taking up y-ui* house in New-llaven, and setting ii down ai the city oi New-York and then return- D’.? again to ils proper place ? Is there any thing virtually incorrect in saying that the distance between your own house and N. York has been removed as t' the jiraciical pui poses of business ? A per son may now travel by steam i>oat antf stage from Norfolk to Ffiiladelphia in ihirty-six hours, iliough the ilistance be tween these places is 210 miles, liy such meihf)ds of iravelling as were once prac tised, at tlie rate of forty or tliiriy-five miles a day, he must have required live or six days to accomplish it. When we say ihai by the improved methods of travelling, the distance of one hundred and seventy miles at the one rate, or ono hundred and scve.nly-five at the other, has been annihilated, there is no longer that objectionable api)earance ot niysin y oy nu5;ic which migh: at first liave occurred to our apprehension. Let il not be thought that the expense of such travelling has been studiously kept out of view. The exj)osii if.ti we.ich has been made is for the purpose of ilik- linclly shewing what in meant, when by certain modes of conveyance, distance is said to be annihilateil. The passage Irom N. Haven to N. York must cost ihree dollars for the distance ofeighly- five miles; and that between Norlolk and Philadelphia must cost twelve, every thing in the latter instance being found to the traveller, through the di'^tance of two hundred and ten miles. — Hut where men go such distances on business, it is really so great a privilege to effect their objects on ihese lernis, and in most cases ihey gain so much by ;t in the end, that the expense is more than competisa'ed by the advantages. When they travel for pleasure, w e shall scarcely deny lhal theii* remuneration is greatly enhanced, or at least thai it is a matter which ought to have no influence on the sulked. A merchant in Norfolk, for we do well lo illusirate by fact, reads in the newspa per that three days al’tervvarcls there is to be sold at auction in Philadelphia, a large quantity of goods or j)i operty in which he feels himself interested. In the last thirty- six hours before the lime of sale he passes which, beiore such a ciian?;r, sold for Hj , he city, defrays all I he expenses of hir. ihrec dc'llu.-s, would now sell lor lilieen, passage with twelve dollars, makes his p».'rhaj)s thirty or filiy dollars per acre. pu,xi,^ses, and possibly profits bv them ihe reason obviously is, that in its iicwiioihe amountofsome hundreds or evcfi i'HOM Tilt MALKKia UKUlSThU. rjofm. # I’he man who owns and cultivates a farm in the neighborhood of a populous city, enjoys mtjre favorable opp»*4ituni- t'es for sup|ioriing a family aiul enlarg ing his property, than one who lives al a distance from a numerous and busy pop ulation, or far back in the interior of a country. It is because the jiroductinns of his farm and his garden have a fair and prom])t market, with no delay of payment. 'J’|«is acts as a stimulus lo liis exertions. He is encouraged to fertilize his grounds, to practice the best modes of cultivation, lo be economical of his tinu% and not to be sparing of his toil. Mis frees are well selccleJ, his orchards flourish, liis meadows are luxuriant, and he is no less particular in the quality of his};rains, roots and vegetables. He is so habitually in good spirits from know ing no necessity or debt, by unembar rassed command of his utTairs, and by a siiuation, it has all the opportunit ics of a quick, convenient, and ready money mar- l;et. It would be a ma'ter of siu-il con- ■siderution, ihat the land at |)res*.nt was in an inferior state of cultivation.
