NOTE. — The two last named Banks were newly chartered, and did not go into operation until after the 1st of April, 1828.

Internal Improvements.

In 1824 an act of the Legislature was passed incorporating a company for the purpose of improving the navigation of Connecticut river. The company has gone into operation, and it is supposed the river will be rendered navigable for steamboats, nearly up to the 15 mile falls. They have not, however, yet made much progress in effecting the object of their incor. poration. In 1825 the governor and council were authorized to appoint canal commissioners, to assist the United States' engineers in examining routes for canals, and $500. were appropriated to defray the expenses of the commissioners. The Legislature also appropriated $75 to defray the expense of surveying a canal route from Montpelier to Lake Champlain. United States' officers have examined routes from Lake Memphremagog to Connecticut river, and to Lake Champlain, and from the river to the lake, by way of Montpelier ; but it is not likely that canals will ever be constructed on any of these routes. A company was incorporated in 1825, for the purpose of constructing a tow path along the bank of Otter Creek, from Vergennes to the lake, which has been accomplished.

Medical School in Boston. The Courses of Lectures begin annually on the third Wednesday in October, and are continued daily for three months, on the following subjects.

Anatomy and Surgery, by John C. Warren, M. D. Chemistry, by John W. Webster, M. D. Materia Medica, by Jacob Bigelow, M.D. Midwifery and Medical Jurisprudence, by Walter Channing, M. D. Theory and Practice of Physic, by James Jackson, M. D. The apparatus and collections of specimens used in illustrating the demonstrative courses, are very extensive. The fees for all the courses amount to $70. Board is obtained for about $3 per week.

This institution now offers greater advantages for the acquirement of a thorough medical education, than it has done at any former period of its history. During the last two years the means of obtaining practical knowledge of the anatomical structure of the human body have been amply supplied to pupils, probably at a less expense than in any other of the schools in the United States. The opportunity of witnessing numerous important and capital operations in surgery, and of attending the clinical practice of one of the best regulated hospitals in this country, are gratuitously afforded to all who attend the lectures of the professors.
