In some hol. low trees, afterwards cut down, their bones and hair were found, to the number of forty or fifty, which renders it probable that they died of some epidemic disease, otherwise they would have been found in the fields.

Fishes. The rivers are stocked with fish, sturgeon, catfish, buffalo-fish, pike, perch, sun-fish, sucker, and chub. Some of the catfish of the Ohio, of which there are two species or varieties, one of a black, and the other of a yellow colour, have weighed from fifty to ninety pounds. The author of the Western Gazetteer says, that, at the mouth of the Scioto river, he saw one caught which weighed seventy-four pounds. The buffalo-fish weighs from five to thirty; sturgeon, from four to forty; perch, from three to twelve; sucker, from one to six ; the pike from four to fifteen. The common weight of the shad is two pounds. The softshelled turtle is considered as a great delicacy. A species of mullet, from two to five inches in length, furnishes a substance resembling mother-of-pearl, of which buttons are made. Civil or Administrative Division of the State of

The population, in 1816, was estimated at 450,000. The number of white male inhabitants, above twentyone years, was found to be 67,550. * The population of this state, in 1791, was, by estimation, 3000. In 1800, by the census, 42,156, in 1810, 230,760. Be. tween the two first dates, it increased at the rate of 30 per cent, and thus doubled in the short space of three years. Between the two last dates, its progress was 184 per cent. nearly doubling every four years.

According to the census of 1810, the proportion of males to females was as follows:

Under 10 years of age, as 100 to 94.7
Above 10 and under 16, -- 100 — 93.1
- 16 - 26, — 100 — 99

100 – 85.3
