Wash. I'eL Future prospects of Norfolk.--The opening of the Dismal Swamp Canal will be the opening d'f an uninterrupted water commu nication between Norfolk and a hack country to the extent of 430 miles, principally through a region unsurpassed in the fertili ty of its soil, and the value of its marketable productions, by any other section of the Union. It is unnecessary to pnlargo upon a fact so interesting to men of capital and qnterprize. Boatsi suitable to the navigation of the canal and of waters of North Car olina, to Weldon, at the Falls of Roanoke, are nearly ready to commence operations; and in a little time the establishment of commercial houses and agencies may be confidently expected. Thus with a cheap conveyance and the certainty of a market at Norfolk for their wiieat, flour, cotton, tobacco, corn, and other productions, the planters on the Roanoke and its branches, in North Carolina and .-Virginia will be enabled to extend the cultivation of those products, and to find profitable employment for their vast dominions, heretoiore remaining idle, because no price that could be obtained fgr their produce would pay the expence of getting it to market.
