ur borrowing into the shade. In all the nine years of the American war, from 1774 to 1783, we only borrowed £104,000,000. In the twenty-two years of the great Revolutionary war we averaged less than £30,000,000 a year, and in the tremendous year 1813-14 the loan was but £36,000,000. But this is but only half the battle. The burthen of a loan depends not so much on the amount of principal as on the rate of interest. We borrowed our money even in 1813 at a little above four and a half per cen1813 at a little above four and a half per cent., and in 1856 at a little above three per cent. The Americans, however, began by an offer of seven per cent., and are at this moment compelled to pay ten or twelve per cent. We find, therefore, that while £60,000,000 annually would be added to their national debt, £6,000,000 annually would be added to the charge of that debt, so that four years and three-quarters of their present expenditure would saddle them with a burthen equal to that which we have incurred in a century and a half.

Old Craney Island will prove a terror to Lincoln's ships, should they venture within range of our guns. On the defence of this small island, now so well fortified and so handsomely improved, depended the safety of the "old borough," and of Portsmouth and the surrounding country in 1813, and should Lincoln's war vessels open upon our fortifications, our safety may again, in a great measure, depend upon the strength and power of its batteries. Now, as in the last war with Great Britain, it is supposed the enemy may attempt a landing at some point on the bay shore; but the attempt, nearly half a century ago, was, unfortunately for John Bull's fighting men, made at Craney Island, which, as is well known, was defended in a manner that reflected lasting honor upon the noble band
