Mars Hill, Maine
This celebrated mountain is situated about a mile west from the east boundary of the United States;—200 miles N.N.E. from Augusta and 80 N.W. from Frederickton, New Brunswick.
The British Queen seems desirous of annexing this portion of the territory of the United States to her wide and fair possessions. This notion of the pretty maiden is altogether preposterous; when she has maturely considered the treaty made by her grandfather and the United States, at Paris, in 1783, we trust her good sense will deter her from urging this claim.
The approach to this mountain is difficult: its sides are rugged, and its summit bold. It has two spurs; one of which is 1,506, the other 1,363 feet above the waters of Goosequill river, in New Brunswick.
