Tho .SVr is a good friend lo the I'dtrio! ! I'lofessor Aitussi. lturlingtoii nml Chicago.. Ship Ciinuls. Tho manifest tendency of tho ngo to Increase tlio facilities for commercial intercourso between distant portion-) of our counlry,und to open new nvenues of triido and personal couimiiiiicitioii, is so great, that our readers will hardly bo sur prised to learn that an inconsiderable outlay of expense will place IJurliiiglon nnd (Chicago in 1 direct and easy business connection ! lly mcati3 1 ..f vil.i..

Hut about 20 miles of Ship Canal re mains to bo constructed to open an nvcnuo through which vessels can navigate from Chi cago to Hurlington, with cargoes of from 3000 to 1000 barrels of Hour, or from 1(1,000 to 1S,UOO bushels of wheat, without breaking bulk! In deed, we aro of the opinion that the lime is war nl hum!, when tlio "Shipping List" of Hurling ton will embrace arrivals and departures nt and from her pott, from and to tho principil market towns on the great Western Lakes Chicago, Milwauliie, Detroit, Cleveland, llufl'alo, ike. &.c. Wo believe that nothing can prevent the speedy completion of the only remaining link in tlio magnificent scries of Ship Canals which will render this splendid enterprise complete. The Now York papers are railing Iho atten tion of their readers to what has been already done, and to what rem tins to be linishcd, In or der to secure (lo use tho words of an intelligent correspondent of tlio Joiinml of Commerce,) "cheaper routes to the Ocean, for freight, from the West, than by the Krie Canal and Hudson Hiver."' Of llieso two points wo propose, as brielly as possible, to speak in this article. The energy and sagacity of tho Iiiili-di (!ov eminent have led them to construct a line of Ship Canals to nvercmno tho fnrnvd.ible Itapid- I of the St. Law rence, and to connect llie great -j Lakes, Lrie and Ontario. This line is coin- posed of tho Wi:i.t.AM, Iho Wtt.i.iAMsiu;t.nii. the CoiiWAM., and tho Hr.Ai-imtMits C.m-il.-. I 1 With tlio Welland, which is already in success. ful operation, our readers aie sullicienlly ac quainted. Tho William-burgh embraces four short ca nals, constructed through William-burgh and Matilda townships, in Dinidns County, and cov ering a distance of about ",:) miles. The long est of these Canals is but four miles in length, present methods of shipping nnd trans-shipping; grain. Wo nre glad lo assure our readers that tho enterprise of which wc are speaking is in hand tint will not sulTer it lo sleep. Indeed, tho eaily completion oT tlio short and eminently feaiUe canal necessary to unito the waters of 1ikes Michigan and Chainplain, may bo said to bo iimititble. It is a measure rendered certain by its own intrinsic importance, no loss than Invited by its manifest practicability. We need hardly add that the prospect of open ing this avenue of direct Trade nnd Commerce with tho mighty West, furnishes an additional and perhaps tho highest objection to any project for bridging our Lake, at Rouses Point or else where if, indeed, it may bo assumed that such a project is now seriously entertained. Cer tainly the opening of ship navigation from Chi cago to llurlingtoii, would, nt onco and effec tually, diminish the zeal, in llnston, for a bridgo across the outlet of this Lake for tho purpose of securing a continuous railroad to Ogdens burgh. Hurlington would then occupy the rela tion to lloston that Ogden-btirgh is assmni d to occupy now, as tho terminus of shipping trade between Ito'ton and tho West; and " notioral " ns our New nnglatnl Metropolis miy b? thought to be, she is about tho last City in tlio universo to build a rod of unnecessary railroad, or a square inch of a fancy bridge.

Wo have heard it intimated that the Winif cour-o was pur sued lo .secure perfect impailiaiity in the Pre mium C.mimttons. Avvav u 1 1 Ti such non-en.-o I 1 It is an imputation upon the honor of the Com mittees that we aro persuaded no fanner in Chittenden County would bo willing to make, :ind that we aro sorry tn see insinuated. There was not a gentleman on any ol iho t onimittecs who would not havo done his duty fairly and honorably, we beliou1, if all tho competitors weroianged face to face before him. I.et us havo 110 suggestions that '"bribery and corrup tion " are uiisible, gentlemen, in onr admirable Society ! Tho suggestion is enough lo make the cabbages blush for 11.-, to say nothing of the roses and the ladies. We should bo glad if wc had space to sneak, from our minutes, somewhat nt large of the nniiy beautiful and Ingenious specimens of Na ture and Ait that came under our observation. We should be decidedly prmoked with Ihe Sec retary for abridging our privileges in this re spect, if it were not that he would probably have the whole Society on his side in the controversy. Wo jield to tho Secretary because ho represents tho Sociili; but if"' tho Secretary stood alono" wo would have our say, whether or no! There are, nevertheless, two or three tilings that wo in' notice. On tho Camp Ground wc were rartieubtrly attracted by the very line Hereford Cow and Calf of Judge CiiiTTr.NPr.x, of Williston, and the Durham Cow and Calf of Mr. O. Siiaw, of Jericho. .Marvin Li:onai;ii, of ninesburgh, exhibited a noblo Cow of tlio half Ditrlnni blood ; and there were others, of very Ihu appearance, belonging to Messrs. lltxa iiam, Wtt-isov, Iti.ivN, and other gentlemen whoso name wo should have been glid lo read instead of thoir.Jgims. Among tho Horses, tlio sinewy and finely knit figures, the beautiful proportions nnd the noblo action of the famous "Sir Henry" and Mr. WniTfoMiiS "Morgan" excited universal ailmi ritinii. Judge Hcxxrir's lino colt, " I'-agle," looked ripo for charging a battalion, if not a jury, ami .Mr. jiai.uwi.mi "ctiiiuors was 111 lip-top condition, We noticed noblo pairs of Working Oxen owned by Mr. licKwixm, of St. (Jcorgo, and Mr. l'r.niiv, o( llurlingtoii, and others the names of whoso owners were hidden from 1norl.1l eyes. There was a good exhibition of Sheep and Swine, but nobody knew whom they belonged to. A beautiful lot of lx?ice.ter-hire sheep we learnt were the property of Mr. L. Hall, of Slielhtirne. We saw one Hog, 15 months old, said tu bo owned by .Mr. Wnuiaxiii, of F.sscx, that was a inon-ter. As Darby justly observed "Hogs aro rightly named, for I never saw a more hugghh looking animal than that!" Hut we aro exceeding our limits. A word for the Town Hall, and wo have done. Hero we were Mill worso perplexed by tho br.iiuloss?o-. nre that stared us in Iho laco when wo sought the names of tho various exhibitor.

It can scarcely be necessary for us to cay that this project is of more consequence to llurling toii, and to Vermont, than all the railroads that can be built on all the lines surveyed from Uike Chainplain to Ogdensburgh. It is obvious that railroads cannot compete, for freight, with w a ters navigable for vtssels that can transport from three to four thousand barrels of llour.
