As Hallowell and Augusta are
so closely united in all their vari-
ous interests and pursuits, a repeti-
tion of what we have said of the
favorable position of Augusta, and
of its future prospects, is unneces-
sary. With common success in our
national affairs, and with a contin-
uation of that spirit of enterprize,
every day manifested on the banks
of the Kennebec, it requires no
Mormon spectacles to foresee that
within a very few years there will
he a continuous village from the
Kennebec dam to the mouth of the
Cobbessecontee. Population, 1820,
2,919; 1830, 3,964. The present
population is about 5,000.

LL. D. a gentleman highly
distinguished for his learning, pub-
lic benefactions and private virtues.
