AFFAIRS OF CANADA. Those who tinner t IiciiisuIvcb that tho order and quiet which have been restored tn the Canadian provinces at the point of the bayonet are lo be of long duration will, we apprehend, find themselves greatly mis taken. At present to bo sure, it may bu said of them ns it was of the ca pi t ol of ill- fated Poland, after the despotic power of Russia had crimsoned her fields with the bravest blood of llie world "order reigns at Warsaw." But it will not bo as easy for England to crush the spirit of her American colonics under the iron heel of power for a groat length of linio as it was for the Russian despot lo trample down effectually the liberties of Poland Had the latter been located as far from the reach of her oppressor, and on the borders of a country enjoying the privileges of freemen as Canada is, we apprehend she would not now be groaning under thu rod of tyraony. nor would her noble sons be now wandering throughout the world exiles frcm their native land. When we sav, however, that the present state of quiet in I he British provinces will not un ol long duration we tio not mean lo he understood that there is any probability of further bloodshed. We do not belie v that the mass of the people there ever in their mo.t ardent efforts to obtain the political rights to winch they felt them selves entitled had the least idea of being driven to '.hat most dreadful report. Nei I her do we believe that they aro in any til inner respjusimu lor iru wuiniu.iii.i:iiii:in o onnr." Hostilities.

The idea that monarchical sway has been maintained by overrunning thu land with tinned cohorts of servile troops, will not coinmeud it very strongly to ti people of any spirit, or who have any iu-t notions of civil liberty. Already we porceive that the principles winch caused the whole iiuiiculiy nre hi "inuiiiL' to bu openly promulgated, Tho Quebec Gnzello gives n statement of par lies in the Uoper Province as follows: "I.

Y. Sun. MILITIA LAW IN CANADA. J'he Parliament of Upper Canada has under consideration n bill for tho modifica tion of tho existing militia law of that province, and, from t tic exhibitions made in the debate upon it, of the tyranny and oppression practised under the existing law, we wonder not that tho voice of pub lie complaint is so loud against it. Under pretexts furnished by it, citizens have been imprisoned; horses, wagons, cows, and furniture have been seized in direct opposi tion to the commands of tho Lieutenant Governor. And in no one instance have the sums received from the oppressed gone into the public treasury! the whole of it has been swallowed by the real domexlic traitors, who under the flag of loyalty, are allowed to prowl about tho country, plun. tiering tho peaceable and truly loyal of their property and their fair fame. One of tho members, Mr. Cook, in an argument in favor of the proposed amend. mollis, gnvo tho (oUow'iag account of the revolting oppression which had been prac tised in the county he represented, and which, he well observed, were eminently calculated to alienate the affections of tho people from tho government, nnd lead to serious consequences. lie said: "The commanding officers of the county ordered tho captains and other officers of the militia, to pick from among their com panies such individuals as they pleased, anil hurried them from their families and homes, and enrolled their nnmes under oilier captain, and they were t linn mid thev were volunteers for six month, with outgiving them a reasonable nmo to pro vide the necessaries of life for their families, or lo provide suitable clothes for them solve. In const quence of which, many families suffered. Some of the persons thus situated were allowed to go home, upon paying the officers monthly for ser vices such sum as could be agreed upon by the parlies. Others aga'ti sold their servi ces to other individuals nn such terms as could be agreed on: but lie believed in nil thosn sales other individuals were seleccd to fill I he places of those so disposed uf. In Home instances where individuals pro cured substitutes, they were told if the substitutes leit, they would he called upon lo lake their own places; other substitutes were allowed to hire nthr individuals after they were enrolled as proper substitutes; nnil in one inlanco thu person who hnd thus procured a substitute was fined 20, although tho officers of tho court were mid (hat the individual had filled the law, and consequently no fine should be imposed on him. Officers also wont through notnc parts of tho country with subscription lists, lo get people to sub!crihe. as Ihey saitl, lo assist in paying the men on duly; and when people fell themselves unable lo subscribe largely, llioy wcro told that unless ihey did so, they would he tnken out for soldmrs! This hnd the desired effect. People of large families would sooner make any "ncrifico than have them perish, which many of them would have done if Ihey had been taken out in the midst of the winter."

Tho time and the location arc good, and we arc persuaded there will bo an immense "gathering of the people." Let the northern counties, in particular, Grand Isle.

Let's now pay oursoulhern friends for their oft repeated calls on similar occasions, by a real family visit. Windsor county literally overflows with the good things of this world, and, our word for it, wo shall not come back grumbling as Ihe Loco Focos did last winter from Middlebury, about "short allowance." Tho people of that place, however, woro probably not to blame. The truth is, there was never another such set of lean, lank, hungry rascals assembled in this slate on any occasion. There's no such ihing os satisfying the hungry maw of an office. holder. COUNTY CONVENTIONS. Wo observe that the county conventions in Washington and Addison are called for the 11th and 12lh. This is well, and the pin ti of holding the local meetings previous to the state convention, should bo adopted as far as practicable throughout tho slate. There are several subjects of importance to bo acted on, and among these the selec tion of a new candidate for Governor ought to bo considered and passed upon in (he prirntry assemblies. Let ua have a full and fair expression of the popular voice on this and other subjects. Will our committee consider the propri ety of an early call ? Mr. Van A'css's return.

Wo make this an nouncement to relievo tho embarrassment of the Senl inel. which wo presume, has too much modesty over to refer to this subject again, until like Poler of old it can literally thrust its fingers into the wounds of its bleeding master. Mr. Wr.n-TBn was to leave New York on the lflth in the Liverpool, for England. His visit to Europe is saitl to be unconnect ed with any political or public object, and "one of liberal curiosity alone." On Thursday his friends entertained him ot the Astor House. It having been intimated that ho would remove from Boston on his return, ho had assured his frinds that he had no intention of changing his residence He is to rtiiurn in season fur the next ses sion of Congress. Among the documents which accompa nied the report of tho Cumtnittce, appoint ed by the House of Representatives at the last session of Congress, to investigate llie affairs of Swartwout, Price, nnd others, as connected with the National Treasury, is a letter from a Mr. Garcsche, who was authoriiiud to exnmino tho affuirs of the Land Office at Columbus, in ihu Slato of Mississippi. It seems that n certain Mr. Boyd had held tho place of Receiver at that place, and hko many others cf ihe class of practical Sub-Treasurers, he prov ed to bo n defaulter to tho amount of near ly sixty thousand dollars. The following is nn extract of a letter from Mr. Gares. cho to the Secretary of the Trrasury, giv ing somo account of his investigations 'Tho account of tho receiver, which I have malleoli!, and tran-mit herewith, pre spiiIo ngninst him a balance of 35 065 54.

Levi Woonnunv, i Sec. of the Treasury. ( O. D. Boyd is indebted fifty thousand nine hundred and thirty-seven dollars and licenly nine cents. (g50.037 29) as per last settlement at the t reasury, Now we doubt whether another such case ever occurred underony oilier govern mcnt. This man, Boyd, had spent within a few dollars of sixty thousand of the mon ey belonging to tho nation, and this, it seems, was caused by his intemperance and yet Mr. Garcsche seems to think, that as the code of morality is rather low Mississippi, and if another person should be nut in office, he would do iust os his predecessor had done that is, cheat the governmentho had better be continued in office for fear of getting a worse. And he adds, as a strong reason for not putting him out, that as ho now has his hands full, that ho will not be disposed lo speculate, or in other words, cheai, any more. This case affords as strong an argument in favor of the Sub-Treasury ptoject, in a practical light, as any thing we have met with. In order to discover the true character, and the real objects of a political party, it is necessary to ascertain their real senti ments and nrinctnles. The loco fncos of our country talk much about demucracy an aristocracy, without giving any more definite account of the meaning of these terms, than that by the first they mean themselves, and by the second their oppn nenli. The following article, which is somewhat more frank and explicit on this subject than any thing we have heretofore met with, is taken, by us, from the Nation al Intelligencer, where tho passage quoted is credited to a paper published in Boston, called the Investigator," which is said to bu under Ihe editorial superintendence of tho well known democrat, Abner Knceland. Tliero arc doubtless many honest, well meaning individuals, who have been impos ed upon by artful, designing, and selfish politicians, and who havo been made to consider every Whig in the country as an aristocrat, because he docs not believe in the infallibility of Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Mr Kneeland's dem ocracy, though it includes tho friends and supporters of these two distinguished indi viduals, goes somewhat beyond the mere coun'crsiL'n of nnlitical p.irtizanship, and takes in fur its leaders and principal abet tors, porsons who have advanced a step or two fnrther, nnd discloses the genuine char actoristicsof J.icksnnism and Van Burenism in a more distinct and important light than ihey commonly appear in before the world We invito that portion of 'the democracy1 which has not thus far been introduced to all the secrets of the party, to examine this quotation from Mr. Knceland, with all the attention and care which the importance of the subject requires. It may help them to ascertain how far they have understood tho true character and objects uf their leaders, and to determine whether it is cx podient for them to follow them any farther. "It is well known lhal thorn aro only two JACKSON EDITORS in Boston, viz he of the Prut and Sialcsnian. and Mr. ABNER KNE BLAND of the INVESTI GATOR.

"The following extracts aru from tho In vestigator of October 24lh: " ' As every man is not acquainted with Iho definition ol the terms ARISTOCRA CY and DEMOCRACY. I lake the liber ty of giving such of your readers as aro deficient in that knowledge a brief Ekelch of those terms in juxtaposition.' "'ARISTOCRACY is n term which dpaignalP" a parly which upholds the BE LIEF OF A SPIRITUAL BEING WHOM THEY CALL GOD. The Inundation of nil this tionseiiso is written in a Bonk by supernal urn) inspiration, which Ihey call a rcvelniion from ihn imaginary personage. DEMOCRACY is n term winch designates a party winch upholds iho belief of a MATERIAL BEING whom they coll GOD.' " In order that your readers should keep their eyes on tlurse two great orders of the moral world, and ho able lo trace Ihcso parties, in spile of tho names which Ihey assume, they will find that the torin WHIGS is on Iv another name for the ARISTOCTACY; and that the ternr TORIES is another name for DEMOC RACY. To sum up t lie substance of both partte-i by condensation in a few words as I can compress Ihem, ARISTOCRACY, WHIGS, and spiritual being, are terms which are svnonymon with FALSE--HOOD. And DEMOCRACY, TORIES, and (as they use ihe term) material being, the terms which ore synonymous with TRUTH.' " FROM FLORIDA. The Tallahassee Floridian of tho 4th inst. lias intelligence from Tampa Bay, that a short time since iho hostile Indians under Nehc Stoco Malta, principal chief of the Tallahas-ci's, with one hundred warriors, went into Tampa and carried off all the Indian prisoners at that post. They like wise returned the night following, crossed the river and reconnoiiercd the post and barracks.
