We observe in Saturday's Centinel,
some extraordinary accounts which
happened about TO years ago, of some
young men, in the humble walks of life,
rising to great eminence and all, no
doubt, in consequence of behaving as
young men ought, to behave pure,
correct, moral, and honest in all their
transactions. One, was a young 13os
tonian, who behaved so well, that his
master, (a merchant of this town,) sent
him on an important agency before he
was of age ratterwards gave him one
of his daughters in marriage, when ho
proceeded to London, and -was settled
there as the agent of his fat!ier-in-lav
and such was his eminence, that he ac-
cumulated a large fortune in less than
20 years, was chosen a member of
Parliament, and Lord jMayor of Lon
don, -Another young man named
Hope, bora at Quincy, came to Bos
ton to live with his uncle-and at the
age of 17, he went, to London, and
from thence to Amsterdam, where ho
became the greatest merchant and
banker ever known before or since.
There is no person who does business
in any part of Europe, but what the
name of Hope is familiar to, as a great
banker. Another young Bostonian
was employed in the humble capacity
of a sailor boy, and in a voyage to the
West Indies, had the misfortune to
have his leg bit off by a shark. He
recovered his health, and finally set
tled in London, and became Lord
Mayor of that city. At the time of
his death he was Commissar" General
of the whole British army, with a sal
ary of 5000. per annum. We men
tion these things as a stimulus for young
men to behave well, as there is no
knowing how our lot may be cast in
our journeys through life, Bos, Gaz:,
A recent publication, relating to tha
commencement and progress of the New
York Canals, contains some interesting
calculations with respect to the state rev
enue and the saving of expense in trans
portation, which these works must in time
produce. Admit the trade between Buf
falo and Albany to be equal to that be
tween Albany and New-York a circum
stance which must at no distant period, if
not immediately, occur the annual reve
nue derived to the state from tolls would
be six millions three hundred thousand
dollars. This is more than six times
enough to defray the expenses of govern
ment for all the states composing the Un
ion. But this is not all. The expense
saved on transportation would be more
than ten millions annually.
It has been proposed in the New-York
Convention to make some permanent pro
vision in the Constitution respecting the
canal tolls. This is wise. In a few years,
the revenue derived from the canals will
be too great to be trusted to any legisla
ture. Hampshire Gazette
We inserted a paragraph yesterday,
estimating the population of the British
Empire (including under that name its
colonies and possessions in America, tho
West Indies, the East Indies, on the coast
of Africa, Sec.) at 95,220,000 souls. The
Russian, the next highest in the scale of
civilized nations, contains 50,000,000 ;
France, about 30,000,000 ; and Austria
an equal number. The Roman Empire,
in all its crlory, containeu 120,000,000,
one half of whom were slaves. When
we compare its situation with that of the
British Empire, in wealth, resources, and
industry, the arts, sciences, commerce,
and agriculture, the preponderance of the
latter in the scale of nations and empires,
is great and most remarkable. The ton
nage employed in the merchant service
is about 2,640,000 tons for Great Britain ;
the exports, 51,000,000. (including 11,
000,000. foreign and colonial) : and im
ports 36,600,000. The navy during the
last war consisted of one thousand ships
of war ; the seamen at present in the
merchant service are about 174,000; the
gross revenue of the state 57000,000.
The capital of the empire contains 1,200,-
000 ner&ons, the same number which
Rome contained in the days of her great
est strength. The value of hxed or land
ed property in Great Britain, as calculated
by Mr. Pitt, in 1797, was 1,600,000,000. ;
and it may now be fairly taken at 2,000,
000,000. The cotton manufactures of
the country are immense, and reach, in
the exports, to 20,000,000, nearly one
half of the whole. In short, taking every
thing into consideration, the British em
pire, in power and strength, may be staled
as the greatest that ever existed on earth,
as it far surpasses them all, in knowledge,
moral character and worth. On her do
minions the sun never sets ; before his
evening rays leave the spires of Quebeck,
his morning beams have shone three
hours on Port Jackson ; and while sinking
rom the waters ot Lake bupenour, his
eye opens upon those of the Ganges.
