State of Connecticut

Connecticut, r., the largest in New England, has its source in the highlands on the n. border of New Hampshire, and its w. branch forms the boundary, by treaty, between the U. States and Canada, to the 45° of n. lat. Its general course is s. by w., and dividing New Hampshire and Vermont, it passes through the western part of Massachusetts, and the central part of Connecticut; and below Middletown, proceeding in a s. s. e. direction, it enters Long Island Sound, between Saybrook and Lyme. Its whole length is about 410 miles; and it flows through a fine country, and passes many flourishing towns. On its borders in New Hampshire, are Haverhill, Hanover, Charlestown, and Walpole; in Vermont, Newbury, Windsor, and Brattleboro'; in Massachusetts, Greenfield, Hadley, Northampton, and Springfield; and in Connecticut. Hartford, Middletown, and Haddam. It is navigable for vessels drawing 10 feet of water to Middletown, and for vessels drawing 8 feet of water to Hartford, the head of sloop navigation. Above this, it is navigable for boats carrying 10 or 12 tons in descending, and two thirds as much in ascending, passing a number of falls and rapids in canals around them, and towed by small steam towboats, to the mouth of Wells r. in Newbury, Vt., a distance of 250 ms. above Hartford. Immediately above this, are the Fifteen Mile Falls. The whole descent of the river between Han-over, N. H., and Enfield, Ct., is 371 feet, of which 218 have been overcome by locks; at South Hadley 50 feet, Nutter's Falls 71, Bellows' Falls 484, Water Quechee 12, and White r. 36 feet. At Enfield is also a fall of 5 or 6 feet, around which is a canal 5s ms. in length. The principal tributaries of the Connecticut are, in New Hampshire, the Upper and Lower Ammonoosuc, Sugar, and Ashuelot rs.; in Vermont, Pasumsic, Wells, White, Quechee, Black, Williams, and West rs. in Massachusetts, Miller's, Deerfield, Chickopee, and Westfield rs.; and in Connecticut, Farmington r. There are numerous bridges over the Connecticut, the lowest of which is at Hartford, Ct. In some places the banks of this river are rough and precipitous; but through a considerable part of its course, there are intervals on each side, from half a mile to 5 miles wide, but little raised above the surface of the river, portions of which are annually overflowed, and thus enriched, and which have great fertility. Besides the steam towboats, there are steam passage boats, which ply between Hartford and Springfield, and several steamboats of a larger size, form a line from Hartford to the city of New York, stopping at the intermediate places on the r. This r. is distinguished for its shad fisheries, and the fish which are caught are considered of a superior quality. Some other fish are taken, but salmon, formerly common, no longer frequent the river.
