[From the Toronto Kxamlner, March 14.] Sudden paroxysms or violent ebullitions of feeljngamongst small factions of unreflecting men are entitled to little importance. They are mere eruptions on the surface of society, while the body is healthy and composed. When assemblies of men cease tJ deliberate, it ib a sure indication that th .-y have temporarily abdicate^ their reason. There is an intoxication of passion as well as of wine. The one suspends the operations of reason and judgment as effectually ub the other. We find in the recent meetings respecting the rebellion losses, abundance ot materials to illustrate these facts. There we find that contagious delirium which, through the medium of heated passion?one man communicates to others. The language of the parties expresses their disordered pass ons, not the convictions of the sober mind. Extravagant language becomes the type ot ungovernable passions. iii cu 1.11 L'ttors. vfiiriiii'iice aim nyperooie, iiecoriilpg to their intensity and extravagance, indicate the mastery of t' e an mal over the intellectual?of the brute over the man. Not in this spirit, however, is the question of annexation approached. It is the eurnest topic of the social circle. It is a thing of which men speak, as of a family arrangement, to one another. With a gieat many it begins to be considered the question. Men think soberly upon it, and speculate upon its advantages, which they weigh against the disadvantages. The last year has witnessed a complete revolution in the sentiments of at least one political party. The question is everywhere mooted by the tones. One of their presses, as would be seen by the extracts we published last week, has given partial expression to the growing sentiment in favor of annexation. There was no mouthing, no beating about the bush; but plain spesking. We now give another statement fi*om an organ of that party, which unresetvi dly adrnita the "annexation leanings" cherished by them, and which they do not attempt to dissemble or keep secret. It is from the Montreal correspondent of the Toronto Patriot :? " Th? only on dit ef the day, worthy of crodlt?you must nut give any to thoxe iu rationed In the nswspapsre?refers to the ,luadf?r ourrent" leaning ef the Angle Saxona he e towards an annexation with their brethren ef the United States, unjustly and untruly attributed to tb?m by Lord Du:hum in his time, but troeas the goepel now " We have endeavoured to asee>'toi:i the causes that have led to so sudden and apparently complete a revolution in the sentiments of the party wim used previously to speak bo dispaigiagly of the American people and their institutions. The result of our inquiries has been to convince us bevnnrl o rl/Milrt tlmt fVio iiIp'i /vf onnuvinir P.ono/^a tr\ the United States nas been embraced by this party after luliy examining its own position, if not that of the country. A portion of them have a strong dislike to the existing union of the Provinces, ana insuperable objections to its continuance. Annexation, they argue, would dissolve the existing union,and make Upper Canada a sovereign, independent State of the American Union. A great deal it is said by these parties uboutttie superiority of the Anglo Saxon race, while the most ridiculous tirades are vented against the imaginary and nonexistmg domination of the French in Lower Canada over this boastful Anglo Sax in of Upper Canada. They profess to see all sorts of hob goblins in the realization of Mr. Lafontaine's declaration that he will never submit to Upper Canada having a greater number of representatives than Lower Canada. Upper Canada, dissevered from her twin sister, the cff-spiiog of La btUc France, and placed under the protection of the stars and stripes, would, they believe, contain two political parties, nicely balanced as t > numker, and changed more in name than in principle. Ths accession to power of the wh p. rrg mc, under General Taylor, gives thorn 1,,,.... ledeial government will give aec> ndancy to principlt s not far di.-< i ndar to those embraced in their OAn political erred, which they Bee no hope of carrying into eflect under the existing circumstances of their colonial position. The protectionists allege that the American tariff would insure them ample protection. Tint protection, they allege, correctly enough, no doubt, they can never hope to obtain from our Provincial Parliament. Annex Upper Canada, as u separate State to the American Union, they say, and that local legislature which now denies protection to domestic manfactures, will yield up to the federal government, at Washington, the right of regulating commerce. Here again their hoj>es are excited by the elevation to the Presidency of General Taylor, whose policy, they argue, will be strictly whig, and therefore protectionist. There is yet another section of this party, who advance different arguments in lavor of annexation. They see plainly that the clergy reserves will, at no distant uay, be devoted to general purposes, llere they bring forwaid all their stereotyped nonsense about vested rights, spoliation, and " robbing the Lord for the high churchmen never hesitate at blasphemy if they think it will be of service to them. These parties, following the example of the Hon. J. II. Cameron, in his speech at the bar oi the House of Assembly, against Mr. Draper's university bill, talk about the magnanimity of the republican States, which never alienated the lands given by a pieus monarch to the Church of England. The - -L m?: _:... nL. i a A iiHiucuse reveuurs ui xriiiuy vuurcu arc irequeiuly instanced, sometimes cren in the columns of the church newspaper. From these facts they conclude, and argue to convince others, that annexation is the only means of preserving what they very arrogantly style their " vested rights." It would be unfair towards the conservatives to represent that they regard the question altogethe* as a party one. Other views present themselves 10 their minds, and are dwelt upon in the contemplation ot the subject. For instance, the Mirror, in remarking upon this under current of feeling, reletes the following curious case of its working: ?"Thus it is our good loyal fellow-citizens are cogitating, ruminating?whining, growling, grinning?and everything but barking. They say they must aad will have annexation; for they cannot, a id will not, do without it. One old tory we heard ot to'ther day, who, after coming home from the indignation, d?d the Q.uecn ana Lafontaine, and swore he could stand it no longer. " Here," said he, " I am, with a couple ot thousand pounds worth of property, on which I have been trying, for eighteen months oast, to raise XloO, aad I'll be curbed if 1 can hud a man to lend it to me. I tried cne of these new-tangled shaving shops, called the Building Societies, and I found I could, when my turn came, (that is, when 1 would be goose enough to oveibid the jackasses who are borrowing money there,) get wliut I required, at an interest which, when I carefully calculated it, 1 found would be about 35 ppr cent." " Now," aaid our old tory, 41 if Cnrada was annexed to the United States, I should not take $00,0(10 fcr my property ; and before a week, I could sell one-fiftieth part of it, ini^K sf ,1.0.1 ,.,0 U i r. si i, rw> r. r I? r i f Inr s<r?r 1)?n such humbug ; 1 have mucked my paws long enough ; but I'll bear it no longer. It's against my stomach " Suchu a rinuni of the arguments in favor of annexation, now so much iu vogue in the / octal circ les ol one of the two political parties. These arguments are regarded by many persona, who, though not of this political party, have no innate prejudices againu American institutions, as quite visionary. ."Some ol these apply other and x vholly difirrrat arguments in lavor of the same Ir, eaaure. The public mind, us excited by tins qul -suod, appears to be in that state ol indecision w|? n a very slight circumstance turns the scale an(j, 'eeidca the most momentous questions.

This fact has since been an- ^ nouneed in other papers. Ttie correspondent of v the Philadelphia North American, the organ of Mr. Clayton,says: b Washington, March 18,1849. Considerable excitement ban been oeoastonsd in the political circles, by intelligence received at the British Legation of revolutionary movements In Canada^trowtog out of the action of the Provincial Parliament on the bill proposing to indemnify for losses daring the border troubles. A difficulty of this kind was to be expected sooner or later, and It is only surprising, that. 0 with the easy access to the States. the communion of (' eentiment I bat has grown up between the people on ti both sides of the lino, and the infection of our exam- h pie. that a determined effort has not been made long a ago to break the bonds of colonial va'saloge The iu- 0 formation of the extent and character of this rupture, Is too imperfect to warrant any vpiuiou of its probable .. onsequenoes; but tbe publio may well believe that 1 General Taylor's administration will not only iu no e way lend itself to interference with the loosl affairs of 1' Canada, but will take decided measures to res'rtln n anv attfnint that maV be made hv inriisnrset aemna. v tbizers, whi'oh would lend to an interruption ?f our pro- n tent friendly relations with Great Britain.

In that paper ct c yeeterday we find the following:? p Intelligence was received at tbe Department ofState " and the British Kmbassy yestirday, stating that an I ? inuuti had occurred in Canada, proceeding from ac- tl tion in the local parliament upon the bill providing a< Indemnity for losses at the time of the border difficulties. The particulars were not furnished; and, therefore, only a vague impreseion can be formed of the nature and extent of the rupture. Some apprehension has been excited by this news, bnt without sufficient ?rearon. I have tbe best reasoos for assuring the public that the government, should it be deemed discreet or necessary, will adopt prompt and efficient measures 01 to prevent any improper interference en the part of c< American citizens with tbe concerns or troubles of Canada, and to preserve tbe relations of peace and 111 good will which now exist between the United States vi and Great Britain. _] m marine Affaire. P' Outrageous Transaction bv the Portuguese Authorities at Mozambique?The Amerioan brig Ma- f>' goun, Captain Russell, sailed from Rio Janeiro on the g; 16th July, 1847, under a charter to the East or West h Coast ef Africa, with a lawful cargo. On the 12th Of September she anchored in tbe river Angoaba, a ^ Moorish port; the agent of the brig made a prossnt to a the Sultan, and the cargo nas discharged.

Captain Russell was ordered on board the brig of war, ? and his vessel seiaed, under the pretence that It was a (, Portuguese pert, to which Captain Russell had to sub- a mlt?though he protested ogainst the proceedings.

I thought thut it would be interesting to some of >ur numerous readers to know the truth as reirds travelling over the Isthmus. I will endeavor give it to you. We arrived at Chagres after a pleasant passage ' eighteen days from New York, and landed on e 31st December. Chagres is a most miserable ace, widia population of about eight hundred; u can scarce get anything to eat, and as for a ace to sleep in, that is next to an impossibility, is a complete swamp; we only remained one ehtinit. We lured a canoe for 35 dollars, to ke us to Cruses, which is at the head of the river, id started 011 new year's day for that place, amidst e most terrible rain you ever saw. One does >t know what rain is till he conies here. I ought a Grotonpipe had burst. It seems to rain 1 the time. We drank yourheatth, with the compliments of :e sevson. on the Clianres liver, in nood Scotch lmkey, to begin with. We were four days on e river, and it was raining all the time. The tnery is most beautiful all the way up; birds of dutiful plumage are abundant, and so very tame lat thoae who had fowling pieces with them had ipital sport, shooting all the way up. IIow aamshed the birds seemed when one ot them was lot! It was something new to them; had they sen commanded by Queen Vic. to appear and be lot in a royal manner, they could not have obey1 her better than when they appeared before ns. At last we made Cruces; it is on a small hill, ith a population ot about eighteen hundred, who re very little better than those atChagres. They re a miserable set of beings. They have very itle to eat, and 110 bed to repose on. We reclined n our trunks tor want ot anything better, and I mained ten days trying to get rny things across i Panama; but transportation is difficult to be had iT love or money; you can scarce get your things :ross, there are so many going. Mules U9ed to e hired for $3, and now it costs from $15 to $20 r loud, and one hundred pounds is considered a ad. The cholera has been raging since my arrival ?re, and the people are getting frightened, tor icre are no doctor?, and whoever,is attacked with , lives frotn eight to ten hours only. I thought it tst to move, leaving a great many of my things thind. I undertook to walk across, but it 1? the orst road?it you can call it a road?I ever saw r dreamed of. You go right up a very steep leuntain, wuh mud and water up to your knees at nery step, and often when you raise your foot du leave your boot behind, and have to turn >und and | ull it out, empty the water, and go on jam, as there is no stopping by the way. This as too much tor some poor fellows, who were bliged to he down, and that was the last ot them, everal died an the way. 1 gave out, hut w is for iiivur ciii'ukii in niir a iiujit- jupi iu nine, i uuuiu nt have pone much farther.

I set myself down to write a few lines, That to let you know that I am in the land of the living, the p and that I am now enjoying tolerably good health. jIo While 1 was iu the gold diggings, my health was bad tobi for a month or so ; for tbero we had no honses, and for eu a( the meat part had to sleep on the ground ox under tie t rocks,where we could get a place.

Could we havo trad* bouses, or good tents, however, we could be comforta- ?jle ( ble even at the diggings. mtD( As for gold, 1 have got plenty of it I have got about tll 763 pounds. It sells here for from 12 to 10 dollars the h. s I ounce. I was in the diggings three months and a half, thai and if I had bad something to waeh ont the dirt olean, pases 1 should have got as much again; for we can get no- ?U|11| thing near all of it out. 1 have a number of pretty to eo targe pieces?one piece weignmg nve pounds I w?n? you to tome out here; you can get just as pt..i( much gold as you want.
