In the old City Hail, now being repaired, a room might be appropriate for sucb purpose, and the cost would be very trifliug to the treasury of the city. Will not lome member of the Common Council take the matter in band ? It would be far better to take distinguished stringers to examine a handsome and cboioe library, than to be continually visiting the publio Institutiens, which lose all their interest after the first visit. The Confederation of British Colonies.? There is manifestly a deep and extensive feeling of discontent in the British North American Colonies, which nothing short ot a material change in the administration of their affairs can allay. The tone of the newspapers, in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Canada, indicates general dissatisfaction with the present colonial government policy, to which is attributed the wretchedly unpropitioiis condition of those provinces. It seems to have been discovered at last?and it is marvellous that it was not discovered before?that the colonial stale is incompatible with general prosperity ; and an idea prevails that the remedy for the present commercial and political evils is to be found, not in a separation from the mother country, but in such a representation " at home," as the colonists term it, as will make them an integral part of the empire. The notion ot annexation to the United States, so often suggested by our territorialists, has hitherto been rejected by the British colonial papers.? ll/konaarow tliiiir Ualfn olliirJu/) tr* thp HllltlPpf it hflQ TT 1ICUCVCI HI* J 1IUW unuuv u uuujvv., .. ....v always been, as far as we know, to discountenance the idea of separation, and to repeat professions ot loyalty and adherence to the mother government. This is natural: but it is a feeling which circumstances may change. The following language from the St. John, N. B., Oburvtr of the 5th inst., contains a bolder threat in regard to independence, than we have before seen:? " There 1b ao much re*p?pt and regard for monarchy and monarchical principles in New Brunswiok, that the idea of separation from Knglund cannot, without great and cogent reason*, be entertained ; but our trade U prostrate-our population in gradually removing to the neighboring republic??Dd it is hard to ray what men. In ?elf defence, may be forced to do The rulers of the British empire, if they wixh to retain the affections of the co'.onlats, must unite them under a common head ' The same pa|>er suggests, in regard to this "union under a common head," or, wi other words, a general confederation of the colonies, that a deputation be sent forthwith to England, to bring under the notice of the government the unfortunate condition in which the colonies are placed a? regards trade and colonial government policy; and to introduce, explain, advocate, and urge the necessity ot a great paili nuentary measure, that will efl'ect: 1st, a union of the en'ire British colonies and dependencies : free trade, and parental and filial annexation between them and the mother country : 2d, colonial representation in the British ministry, .and in parliament: 3d, a wide plan c.f immigration ot laborers and capital, and an abolition of the obnoxious "colonial office policy." This important suggestion is copi? <1 into the Quebec Gazette of the 15th inst.. but without any remark which would indicate the public sentiment of Canada in regard to it. We are not aware tiat the question ot con<pHemtion. with reuresentation in the British par hament, was ever agitated before in the North American colonies. The union of the colonies under oae government was first sugcested, many years ago, by the Duke of lCfcut, father of Queen Victoria, who resided some time in Canada; and the late liarl ot Durham, when Governor General ol British North America, suggested a general union of the provinces; but in neither case did representation in parliament enter into the plan?Biston Traveller Dec. 22 Domestic Miscellany, The water will be let oil the Mianr Canal on the 25th, and will be left of] tor about two months, for cleaning and repiirs.

It was about as well that no attempt was made to transact the usual routine of buslneu, for the borrible weather would hare made it almost abortive. It wai a day, of all others that we have had during the past month, to remain in doors; and those who could do so were fortunate. We do not look for much activity in any department of business until after the holidays Christmas and New Tear derange, for a time, all the operations of trade.

Tit Pottal Thfficultui U'Uh (Jrtat Britain?Hit Patent Office Report? Tht Mimon to Rom*? General Taylnr'? (Juartert, irr , 4?c. We have seen it stated that Mr. Putaam, of New York, brought out Ironi ?nuUnd, the other dny, a final Hcttlemcnt of the postal difficulties betireea that country and ours. This is a mistake. No communication with reference to that subject hai been received, either at the Htate Department or the Post Office Department, from Mr. Putnam, and, we understand, no final settlement of the <juea> tion haa as yet been made. There are still t*r? or three points of disagreement, which Mr. Bancroft, our Minister, mdoingall in his power to arrange; and it i% Relieved, (rum the good feeling whirl, .t i resent exists, that everything will b? satisfactorily settled in a very abort time. A geuius who presides over a miserable sheet? by courtesy called a newspaper?in Mew York, complained the other day ot ttie Patent office Report lor 1HI8 not vet having made its appearance, j Time is one, and but one, cop/ of the valuable sheet in question taken in this city, and by chance 1 we lighted upon the article containing the formidable complaint againt-t the Commissioner of | Patents. Now, it ho happens that the calendar year, or the laut day of December, complete* the year in the Patent Office, and not as in the Treasury, the fiscal year ending the 30th of June. It would, therefore, be raiher a difficult matter for any Commissioner to turniuh the operations of a year until the year wan completed; and consequently no report is made until aome time in February?thus allowing a reasonable period to bring up the details which are embraced in the report of the Commissioner. There iH httle probability of the nomination of Major Cass to the miHMion to Home being confirmed, tome of the. strongest personal and political friends ot his father going against it. Several ..... 1 .. Ti.. . *L- ? . iccirM'iiw njc bdp^ucu i?u vins courtsr?mR mom prominent one being, that ihcre are many good democrat*, who, in a pecuniary point of view, I stand much more in need of the appointment than tli'- gentleman nominated paternally does. Iacase of Major Cass's rejection, it is believed Colonel Weller. ofOhio,will be nominated for the mission. Colonel Weller presents strong claims?although, we understand,he posseaies the rare merit of never having urged them. He has lor years done battle in the ranks of the democracy; and tlie rec?ni gt^ bernatorial election in Ohio proves that he uujojrs the confidence of his party th-re. The Vice President elect hna taken rooms at Williard's Hotel; and it is generally supposed by the friends of General Taylor, that the President tlect will also " put up " at the same home. This is a rumor much more likely to be correct than any of the " gi vinus out" we have h'tii as to the ]>nsonnet of the old hero's cabinet Williard's is* i new hotel, elegantly furnnhed throughout, and, from lhe manner in which it is kepi, rapidly cornlrg into favor with the travelling community. Its proximily to the White House will render it especially convenient to General Taylor, should the 4th of March turn out to be a wetd.iy ; meanwhile, it will lie advantageous to Mr. Polk, as he can visit his friend, the General, daily, without much j fatigue. Washi.noton, Dec. 21, 1MB. I Frojinsition to scnil J. R. Giddingt to the U. 8 Semite. We have seen a letter from a leading gentleman in Ohio, which states that a pr-posit,on had bee? made hv the free soil party there, to join the democratic party?the former agieeing to assist the democrats to organize the Legislature, and to bu|?i pwrt all their measures, upon one condition: that | Joshua R. Oiddingfl should receive the ai>pointment of United States Senator, in the room of Mr. i Allen, whose term expires on the 31 ot Mirch. I The proposition was, as it deserved to be, indignantly rrjHcted. Every effort, however, is being made to elect Giddinga ; but, for the honor of the country, and the credit of Ohio, we trust that that fanatic will never be sent to the Senate of th^ United States. That body already contains one uiHn who never should have been sent there, and it is to be hoped the disgrace of a second?if posl sible, more fanatical, and a greater incendiary? wi 1 be spared. Such men are the r^al ea-m'es of 1 the black race. Th?*y care nothing for their condition, 80 long as political capital can be made out of them. If iney really felt one tittle of the sympathy they profess, they would endeavor to ra so the condition of the free blacks in the non-slavet holding States, instead of permitting tnem, as thef H now do, to became vtfirants and lie ifars. J I Washington, Dec. 21, 1848. > I Thote Mxlen^et. Last session, Congress passed a law reducing i the mileage of messengers who might be detailed ' to rvport the resu'ts ot the electoral colleges to i the federal authorities at Washington. Last week r the messengers sent n a memorial, congratulating Congress on the admi able working ot the law, and recommending them to try the experiment upon their own mileage, now that the expeditncy : of a reduction is proved. - The House laughed at that memorial, and there , whs an end of it. i- The oiher day the statistics of the members' ? milfHge. as repotted by Horace #reelejr, came back to Washington in the Tribune, showing that - except two or three strict constructionists-from Virginia, almost every member ot both houses has overcharged for travel in sums ranging from t. *1 40 to $1,2(J0 excss. ? Those statistics hit the nail on the top of the Jj head, and you may look lor some little indignair tion on the subject, and perhaps some retrench<i ment. ri As the subject is up, we would call public attenp tion to the extra session (Executive) of the Se^ nate, which is to be convened atier the tourth ' March next, for the purpose of confirming Cabinet e. ; appointments. In IKio, the short session ended ?r on the 1th March. The Senators who were here ? on the 5tli were here at the close of the session. Yet, by a liberal construction ot tli- law, it was so ? constiued as to allow to each Senator his usual L": mileage for atrip home and back, and again to [d the extra Executive session Thus, between JJ o'clock xt miiht, and 12 the next morning, a Sena!j. tor from Alabama, for m&tance, ha'l travelled consiructivt ly all the way home and back again, for nr which journey he received some $2,500 fr>m the public treasury, (two thousand five hundred dol lars).
