and other manufacturing establish-
ments. Lake Bombazine, 7 miles
in length and
2 in breadth, is chief-
ly in this town. It is stored with
fish, and has an island near its cen-
tre of exquisite beauty. The vil-
lage of Castleton is elevated, neat-

Cavendish, Vt.

Windsor co. There are two flour-
ishing villages in Cavendish,
tdn’s village
and Proctorsville. It
is watered by Black river and Twen-
ty Mile Stream, which afford a good
hydraulic power. Here are in op-
eration 4 large woolen factories,
iron works, manufactures of tin,
and many other branches of me-
chanics. Along the streams the
soil is excellent; the high land is
good, but best adapted to grazing.
Here are about 6,000 sheep. The
channel of Black river, at the falls,
has been worn down
100 feet. The
effects of the water, at this place,
are very curious. Hawk’s moun-
tain separates this town from Balti-
more. Cavendish, in common with
most of the towns in Vermont, pre-
sents a great variety of mountain
scenery. It lies
10 miles S. W.
from Windsor, and 60 S. from Mont-
pelier. First settled, 1769. Pop-
ulation, 1830, 1,498.

Centre-Harborj E». II.,

Strafford co., is pleasantly situa-
ted between Winnepisiogee and
Squam lakes ; distant from Concord,
39 miles, Portsmouth 60, Boston
104. Measley pond is partly in this
town. Squam lake furnishes fine
trout, and has several islands valu-
able for grazing. The soil is very
good, mostly a rich loam. Centre
Harbor is a delightful resting place,
during the warm season, of tourists,
to the White Mountains, and the
great resort of those, visiting the
Winnepisiogee lake and the great
natural curiosities in the adjoining
town of Moultonborough.    The
first settlements were made by Eb-
enezer Chamberlain, in 1765, and
Col. Joseph Senter, in 1767. Pop-
ulation, in 1830, 577.

Champlain. Lake.

This delightful expanse of water
is the boundary line between New
York and Vermont. Vermont em-
braces about two thirds of its sur-
face. New York is on the W. side,
and the counties of Franklin, Chit-
tenden, Addison, and a part of Rut-
land, in the state of Vermont, lie
on the E. At the N. it extends a
few miles into Lowe? Canada, and
receives the waters of Pike river.
It discharges into the St. Lawrence
by the Richelieu, Sorel, or Chambly
river. Among its tributaries from
Vermont are ihe Missisque, Lam-
| oille, Onion, Otter, and Pawlet riv-
ers. From New York it receives
the waters of the Chazy, Saranac,
Sable, Bouquet, and Wood rivers,
and of Lake George. Its length is
about 130 miles : its breadth varies
1 to 12 miles : average breadth
about 3 miles. It abounds with
salmon, trout, pickerel and other
fish. It is navigable for vessels
of 90 tons burthen, and splen-
did steamboats are continually ply-
ing, in the season of navigation,
from Whitehall, along its beautiful
shores, to St. John’s in Canada.—
This lake contains about 60 islands,
is' remarkable for its splendid scene-
ry, and renowned in ancient and
modern stories for its scenes of war-
like achievements. Lake Cham-
plain is a great resort, both for bu-
siness and pleasure.
