We not unfrequently heai ? sual allusions made to the annexation of Canad. o this country, in the clever offhand manner ii vhieh that of Texas has been accomplished. Thos? f 10 do so, intend to be factious, in many cases ,,,f We believe the practicability of annexing Canad i^ very often spoken of with great sincerity bv tt' c t zens. n the event of u war of long duration i w uld be, n mu>t appear to any rational observer t pe lecily natural result to see Canada possessed' b\ his country. But those who admit the feasib. it! ' <,Uf'|, amine Hri,isli authority there, must not re cessanlv regard it as a work of great facility T, pronounce a correct opinion upon the project, it ie quires the possession of a knowledge of the physica features of that province, of the character, the ton, and temper of the inhabitant., the influences, lot* Hid general, that operate U|K?n them. Annexing i i'lr^e section of the earth, such hs Canada, is not don in a day, nor without encountering deUy,'nnd dill ties c.? various and unexpected kinds. Eve. , *aS no e*ception. U,,w many years Inn ilowii since that countrv first was put on "the track it* destiny the bosom of this r- public. Ilow slow! it moved, what obstacles it art, and how uncertsi. betimes seemed its ultimate arrival at the final de ttnation. A'l this took place in a c-<se in which hot' iwties were willing to bring about the movement were disposed to o.oerate and pull together; and >. ? at the present moment it is not universally acknc wl edited that Texas is a part of this Union. I)ouf u certainly upon technicalities do sudsiest themselves to some minds as to the real position of Texas at present, and they are not few who even now wouh | 8 iv that she is still a di>riuct and independent re public. One thing at least is apparent from all this ; th< annexation of one country to another is a trouVle *ome undertaking, even under the most favorabh circumstances. How much more so then must it be, when circumstances are adverse, when at least one of the parties to the project is unwilling. Such an illustration applies to Canada. Its inhabitants are not in the condition the (>eople of Texas were, when tliey came in collision with Mexico. A few year u-'o jierhaps there was a vt.-ib'e analogy betweei th.-m, when at least the half of ihe population of Ca nada felt a s:ncere hostility to their rulers, and wou!< have been el id to change its connection for an) other without being vary particular about the term ?"ince then, however, there has been a reaction ) Owing to a variety of causes, there is a remarkabU . r .'-action among our northern neighbors. The dis. i putps that kept bad blood alive between the French rice in the House of Assembly and the British mi. j nority, came to a crisis in 1837, and expended their force in an impotent iusurrection Leaving the right and wrong of the question out of sight, it must be ad , muted that the cau?e ofthe majority was badly mana g d, and that of the government with energy and i skiII. A partial appeal to arms was disastrous for the ho|iesof the people, and they were left but one alter j native to endure defeat in sullen silence. j It is notorious to all who have been among th, French people in Canada, thut for three or four years I atter the events of which we have been speaking ^ they were highly exasperated against the British gov e ntnent. and it is also true that thisfeeling was great | ly aggravated by prejudices founded in adiffcrence or | rare and language. The habitants not only hated Bri tish policy, but they hated it doubly because adminis t 'red by those who wer-British in blood, language and re'igion. Xolre rtligiqn, nntre lung at, rt nos hi* w IS the cherished watchword of the French, and is' t > this day. It Was the power of the sentiment coi. t.iued therein that kept and has continued alive theii ptrtizanship, and it will be the greatest difficulty to be overcome by whatever government is in future to rule them. Those who talk of annexing Canada seen, to overlook this greatly. While there was a' strong tendency in the Canad.an mind to look abroad for help and sympathy, the confidence re posed by them in the people of the United States was never strong, their hopes of succor never sanguine simply because of the existence of these differences in laws, language and religion. A large portion? by l ar the majority of the Canadians never forgot even ?n their wrath, that a sacrifice of their dear national ity would follow a political union with this republic and have made up their minds that it is !-etter to bear the ills they have, than fly to others that would b ? equally hateful to them. All this was quite ap parent to the government, and it- policy has been adapted thereto w.th success. Since the death o: Lord Sydenham, who came out a* Governor-Gen eral With extensive powers, and who made grea> mi-takes in its applic.tion, the policy ofthe provin. cial administrat on has beenjnodified gradually, but ste dily, so as to conciliate the French. Sir Charl-* M-tcalf assumed the direction of affairs by several a -ts of marked liberality: indeed to such a leneth ? id tie go that those who were denominated ultra-loyali.- ts b "ke forth in clamors and violent denunciation ol the authorities, and persevered in the most unscrupu lous opposition that has ever been seen there. Upon his death, which was greatly deplored by the people of the lower province, [he present Governor arrived His previous public career Was in his favour, and he was received by all classes with a hearty wel come, but with a degree of repressed siii-picion He had a hard task before him, to please both par ties. A short time showed that his policy was not fully approved by either, but latterly he has suc ceeded to'soften asperities.jand give a better tone to public feeling in general. At the present moment < anada is. in a political point of view, more quiet than at any period within the last twenty years, and those who would calculate on the co-operation of its people to elfect a union with this country, would find themselves mistaken. Without any reference to the; admitted i-if-nority of monarchical instil* tions, no other subjects of a crowned head enjoy more liberty and protection than the Canadians Religious freedom prevails, there are almo.-t no taxes, direct or indirect ; they enjoy a speCie? ol monopoly of commerce with the mother country ; a great annual expenditure of money takes place in th* payment of the army and the construction ?.f military and public works ; their cities are protected by an efficient police ; their wharves are covered with merchandize which i? purchased by the con sumer Jtl per cent cheaper th to here ; the credit of its merchants and commercial classes is un bounded and stable ; and in fact, the Canadians are participators in all the advantages derivable from a connection with a rich and powerful country, and exempt from nearly all the evils that affect the'ir fel .low subjects on the other side of the Atlantic. To talk of an annexation of Canada with the consent of its p'-ople, at present, seems to betray an ignor ance of these facts; for, to assume a disposition on the part of those who possess those advantages to j forego them, and in doing so to do violence to well j known and deep grounded predilections for a mo n trchical form ol government, would not be even plausible. We pre?ume that none are so fooli-h a to advocate a forcible annexation. Were the coun trv r-n times as valuable, it h a question whether it w ul I not be dear at the cost a war for its possession would surely entail Military ?The Hertford Light Guard*, Captan |T II.

The week past has been one of intense excitement among the democracy of Rochester. In it, has been decided one o! the severest contests which it has ever been the tortune of our citizens to witness ? The steeple chase for the Tost Office, which com menced immediately after the Presidential election, last fall, hasjust been decided in favor of a spirited race. His b ickers having the fullest confidence in his speed and mettle, entered him for the purse at a late day, although he had been privately fitting for -ome time. His competitors had been in full train ing for several months. Gen. L , Capt. S , and A K A , were early entered and in good trim, and until the ' field" reached the winning post, it was supi?osed that one of these would take the ;>urse, but in this, as in all contests of this character, v-*ry many were surprised and not a lew disap|K>int ed I am but little conversant with matters of the '? urf ;" and might commit some errors in the use ol terms, Arc , so I will leave a technical description ol the race toothers better able to do it justice, and ?'ive you a brief account of it in my own way. The first heat occupied nearly the whole of the winter. Five were entered, of whom two be came faint by the way and "gave out." This stale ol tilings encouraged two others to offer, viz: ? the spirited one, and J. W. F. The "field" still consist ed of five, and the contest began to awaken consid erable interest. That the patrons of the ''turf" tbroad may know something more of these noble coursers, 1 will give a short description of each: ? lien. L , a fine animal, 15$ hands high ? dapple ^rey, lean in flesh, but being of Southernbreed.was thought good 'or a scrub match, but rather too old ind inlirrn lor a long race. His backers were prin oipally Virginians; but few bets taken in this viciui Ity. Capt. 5 , 15 hands high ? color chestnut ?old hunker breed? quite lean, and in rather pool condition from an injury received between the first ? rid second heats, which put even betting on him out of the question. A. K. A , 15 hands high ? ,ioney breed ? ccJ.>r, bright sorrel ? in yood flesh ind condition, and will be a formidable antagonist when a little older. His backers were the young democracy, and as his first keeper is an experienced VI. L> , it was thought, by dint ol training, he might bear ort'the prize ? tree belting w ith odds in his fa vor. J. M. F , a noble animal, the handsomest in the group? full 16 hands high? Color, brown ? lull, flowing black inane, and in tine condition, with i more thorough training, would have been good igunstthe "field." Considerable betting. In his legpiir at the loss of the race, he immediately com mitted matrimony. Last of all, the luvorite "one of (tie day ? the successful one, 15 hands big" ? licht bay color ? Bunker Hill breed? in good condition. !>ut thought of too great girth to run well tie was rode by Jockey Wain, of Ohio; weight pounds, ind upwards. The onlv bet taken was a half pint of Wolcott's best to a penny grab of hegars. To the urprise ot all, and the dismay of his competitors, he /allied the second heat by half a head. His frt> nils ?>aw that such a tremendous backer as Sam would ose the final h-at ? so he was posted off "home where he belonged," and Recorder G , took he saddle on the last heat ? gallantly distanced ?very thing on the course, and the judge*, (Cave Johnson, of Tennessee, und Medill, of Ohio,) i m tied lately dec ared in his favor. Seriously.? There has been a desperate struggle hereforihe 1'ost office among the democracy, ?no it was supposed that when the question was settled and an appointment made, the politic d cauldron would settle down and be quiet .Not so. Ifenr* Campbell, K-q , an ext-nsive liquor dealer, ha* re ?eived the appointment, and when the w?s re ce:ved here, there was one of th>- most tremendous com notions in the demo rnti ; r*mp - ver witnessed, fne ciMternation ot me fhilistim-s ol old, whei.

Most of the pe< <le are farmers, and at this dry season are deeplv (reeled lest the drought will destroy not only thei .ibors, but their anticipations. Yesterday was a great day for the people, such u Vllentown has never before seen. The Odd Fellow ?f this place, wishing to dedicate their new Lodg loom, just finished, invited tlieir brethren from th? urroiinding country to meet them on the occasion Accordingly, great preparations were made to mak? the affair us good as jK?s?ible. The day came ut lat< i ? nd the old and young, male and female, ull coloi iud classes, came rushing into town, from great di auces in the country ? more wagons were in to\\' him on any previous occasion.

The U S. is the fash tollable house, or in other words the house of fash ion. Here may be seen the millionaire with a love ly daughter hanging on his arm, promenading the piazza in lorcly strides, assuming the airs thai wealth is always supposed to give a man. If tin wealth is honestly acquired it is all well enough; i obtained oi-honestly the assumption g?es for nought I'he sting of h guilty conscience sears the boson tnd harrows the soul, and leaves no peace of mind One may retire from the busy hum of a city anc ?i-ek |>eace of mind amid the beautiful groves ot Saratoga ? but alas ! even there no content is to b? lound. The summer wind, as it sends its whisi er i ngs through the forest trees, speaks in a voice of thunder to a guilty conscience; the bubbling water proclaim it to him, and the enchanting music of Ole Mull's violm bills him into monv-ntaiy forgetfulnees. only to awaken him again in increased misery o! thought.

The Eiplutiou Again, May it hi" asked of your correspondent "CI." how many different "explosions," or "iu.-tanf an^o"" combustions" he supposes an individual mass of iunpowder would make when ignited] J)oes lie ??upi>os?* it would make two or three 1 II lie does, lie shou'.d have stated such suppos ition to complete his hyiK)thei-is ol yesterday as to the explosion ut Crock er vV Warren's store. It must be apparent that if an undivided mass of gunpowder would make but one explosion, an undivided mass of saltpetie converted intogunpowder, in the manner he argues, (which I very plausilbe) would m ike but one explosion. Let ii also be inquired ol "C." il the presence of saltpetre n 'hat store proves conclusively to his mind the ab seence of gunpowder, manufactured otherwisetnan b\ the process he supposes] One mLht bf led to believe it did, from his article ol yesterday To my mind, it brings no such conviction, for I do believe it |hjbsi ble that both might have been there at one and th< same tifne. The facts, as stated by eye witnesses, and others, are sufficient to satisfy any one that not only saltpetre and the other articles contended for b\ "C." were there, but gunpowder also was there. It is admitted on all hands, that there were two or three different explosions. Ab I have asked above, would "C.V' beautiful theory account for mort than one ! Not as he has stated it, at all events ? Add to the tact of the several explosions, the thsti mony of (I think) the foreman of No. 22 fire engine If 1 recollect rightly the language of the card t? which I refer, "the air (previous to the explosion) seemed filled with burning balls of saltpetre, which were being constantly thrown out of th> burning building like the constant firing of n ship't broadside." This appearance was while the sail petre was burning, and we may suppose caused M it; and lam inclined to believe that ih? facts of it being burning in that way, lends to discredit of ii self the supponition that it w is the saltpetre cans' ( the exp'o-ion With th"*e facts, let us 9'i,>pose i case while this burning ("C." would call it explo sion by particles, I suppo-e) of the saltpetre is goin on, (and presenting the appearance* described), tl ? fire!* readies n keg of gunpowder, which we wil -oppose to have been there, and it explodes, and b> means of tine explosion some thirty er forty oil* kegs, which we will also suppose to he stored then anil thev very n itttrally on being opened and findinr themselves in such company, go off too, and take the whole street with them, scattering the burning salt(ietre, and spreading the conflagration in ?-ver\ ilirt-ction, Hsdid the explosion ?t the late fire.? There, you have mv tlieo.y? compare it with "C.s' whose is the best ? " C." evulences a good mind, and a bett'-r heart but he should wrttr caieliilly liveryuodv's judg ment is not led astray by th'*ir feelings of pity for any one. If he wirhes to arrive at a just conclu sion, instead of considering all that saltpetre might do, under every supinations concatenation of cir cumsUnces. lie should satisfy himself as to whether or not it cou'd, in all liuman probability, be a credi ble story, th it saltjietre was the cause of the explo gion (or explosions) at the late fire. He should cm - sider his theory in connection with the f.icta of th Cist-, and observe its application No theorizing however ? indeed, nothing will ever silence th> complaints of any reflecting man in the community, uril'.-is Crocker and W.irn-n bring forward living witnesses, who knew tfie contents of their store, ind who will swear that there was no gunpowde there ; and till they do so, m ny will notice th omission, and each draw his own conclasion.

At 3 o'clock yesterday morning a destructive Are broke out in the Iron Foundry of Mr. Savory, Har ximus, Jersey City, which burned with ?uch rapidity that before the engines could arrive the whole build ing, together with a stable and dwelling house, were in dames. The Foundry contained a quantity of material tor casting, together with a large stock of pattern* and tools, which wero all destroyed. The stable had some valuable horses in it, which were let at liberty the mo ment the Are was discovered, but a quantity ol hay and <traw and other feed was consumed. The dwelling house also shared the samo fate, with most ol its furniture. The loss will not he less than $0,000, of which a small por 'ion is insured. It is believed to be the work of an incen diary.
