Stony Point the scenery on the hut son River bears nature s grandest imprint. The hand that formed a universe of worlds has thrown tog Ellier along the Banks of this Noble Stream a wild assemblage of rocks and mountains. Tiie Palisa Ders As they Are called commence on the Western Side of the Hudson just Libove the we Hawk or Weehawken and extend about 12 Miles up the River. They Are bold abrupt demonstrations of omnipotence moulded by him whose Power is not bounded by time or Cannon of a thousand armies Milit Roar out their Ineo Ectal vengeance against this natural Battery which frowns Oer the Broad Bright Stream at an Elevation of from sixty to one Hundred and fifty feel and the parapet would laugh in scorn at the Power of Battle. After tie Pali it Deg terminate a country of Hilu succeeds the former rounded up like loaves of sugar and the latter indented like dimples on the Cheek of Beauty. Occasionally How. Ever nature has projected into the Stream one of her bold fonts a miniature foundation of the Hills of fear which cast their sombre shadows a cots the Prius of the Highlands one of these pro i Lions is Stony Point. It stands out in bold Relief from the Rural Bee by j it below and challenges the attention of the passenger Olio has been relieved from the Sublimity of the Basset tic rocks of the Palisades to prepare him for a Wilder developed ment of n Turc Al a radiology. But the impressions which crowd into the pc stator s mind in this Region Are not All derived from a River mount in or Valley tradition and history lend a melancholy glory to this revolutionary ground. On the right or Castern Bank stretches away the celebrated Neutral ground throughout the entire extent of Westchester county where Rig it Iligir cow boys Viiginia i horse and Continentals whigs and Torie up Peare Dand i appeared like the actors of a fill a ind bloody tragedy. Oil the left Stony Point is Allied to associations of military achievements and unfading renown while Farthier up Arnold s treason Andre s Cap. Lure and harsh although merited Fate twine around the memorable rocks of West Point. Stony i Point is about forty Miles a Hove new York and ten or fourteen Miles below West i Point. It is a a a Widt cd Gravelly Hill of Small extent jetting into the Stream and connected Witt it the main land by a Ioa morass which is partially overflowed Liy tide Wati r.

The inhabitants on the Eastern Side of the River heard a Sharp crashing As the forlorn Hope of either Side broke into the Bouble Row of abates the muskets of the sentinels flashed suddenly amidst the darkness and in moment the fortress vomited out Al me and Thunder is if a Volcano had ignited and was tossing its White lava upwards. The cry of Battle not to be mistaken shrill wild and upon the Dull ear of the night but All was in vain for the fortress. Under the showers of grape and full in the red Eye of Battle the gloomy still wavering columns moved on and the two vanguards met in the Centre of the works. The British made at instant surrender to avoid the extermination which awaited the deploy of the columns upon the entrenchments. Sixty three Brit ish soldiers Lay dead at their guns five i undred and forty three were made prisoners and the spoils were 2 standards 2 flags 15 pieces of Ord. , and other materials of War of the sons of new England ninety eight were killed or wounded. Of Lieut. Gibbon s Fortune Hope Quot seventeen were no More of Lieut. Knox s a bout the same number were slain. These spots where the life blood of the free has been poured out like water and where the traces of the revolutionary ditch and Mound still remain Are alters sacred to the High recollect Loiis of be the turf Over these departed Patriot.

Farmer s Register decrease of the Black population in the Quot free a late number of the journal of Commerce states As Quot a curious in Tractive fact that while the coloured population in the slave Stales increase Vith astonishing rapidity in the free states it increases scarcely at All. The increase in Providence during the last five years is Only 10, and in this City new York Only 1010, which we pc sume a less than the about of Aumi Gration from the South during the same period. In dutchess county there is a decrease of co Ord popu lation since 1830 to the number of 417 or one ctr of the whole. The fact that the emancipated negro race in this country has either decreased in numbers or increased very slowly compared to the slaves May Well be Quot instructive Quot a but it is not at All strange. It accords precisely with the Laws of population applied to the general habits and Cirta instances of the negro family. Still however striking May be the facts cited they do not present a fair exam ii of the operation of these Laws. Where a few free negroes Only Are found As is now the Case in both the Northern and Southern states they m in subsist and even increase As paupers or pilfer ers at the expense of the far More num Erous industrious or wealthy part of the As frag Euto of the Gypsey tribe have lived in fur Opo. But if ii Alf the population North consisted of free negroes or if All the slaves in the South were at once made free and forced to subsist on the fruits of their own labor the rate of would be far greater. These anticipated results were stated in a passage in the earliest number of this journal which will be copied Here As being even More appropriate this juncture than when first presented. Quot undoubtedly the condition of a slave in deplorable and in must Ever be that Euci a bite a Tould exl to and be Exten Deil so widely Over ii Hobo As to seem to be tiie Ine it ill be lot of it Large Poi Tion of Mankind.
