The |Mirent m growing old?the child ir gaining greater ?tr? ngth, with advancing vearr. All thie |a>rtendn that in a short tune the star* and atrija ? will lie th< douunnnt hug over the w hole oi the Sew World For the lust few year*, the buaineM of there provineer ha* been frightfully retrograding The f>>mniereial distress and the almost universal bsnkruptcy which har prevailed, ir w ithout parallel m coin, ntul history. Every one i? inipr* am-d?even the most careless and indilTerent?of the aetual necessity of sotiK' immediate so |? being taken to rc*u?citate the trade of the country. At thia verv moment when it was thought that the lm;?-rial and Provincial Parliaments w ould be talking the distressed state of lAin into th-ir Mlisw consideration, it in nmiounced that the fir*t intends depriving us of all protection ; and tlw odn r attempts te nuudle ourselves and our children w nli an enormous deht for the most nefarious of purpose*. It is not to be wondered at, seeing tins, that the td<>od of every colonint, throughout the length and bre tdth of the Cutistdus. should hod w ithin hi* veins at th ? insupportable tyrumiy. There are a few (but a tniv serable minority of ultra tones), who would desire to see the English ting remain supreme over the Canada?, and would seek to accomplish their object by a " federal union of ull the British North American provinces.' The mass of the people took in another direction lor an antidote to their tnialortunes?in annexation to the Cuited States all the advantages would be gained that could possibly be desired. I have hud shown to nte by one of our leading and most influential merchants, a statement of the eminent benefits to be derived from such a connexion. lie says our canuls now nroduce f'AJU,000 per annum. \V ere we a State of the I'nion.At would be but natural to supdosc we should obtain an immense amount ot the carrying tiadc ot the West; and that the folates of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, und a portion of New York, containing a larger imputation than both of the Canadian provinces, would draw their supplies through this source. The revenue in such a case, to be derived from these canals, might be safely estimated for the first year at |1,400,000, and in the course of two years reach |3,000,000. The" contemplated Caughnawaga canal would, of course, be made. The advantages of having a market for our lumber and feneritl produce, would be very great. 1-ant year, 626,000 worth of lumber was exported to the States. The increase in this article would be immense. To the Montrealers, such a connection is of the most paramount importance. The present metropolis of dhe Canadas would become the great emporium of the North, and rise to a pitch of prosperity which almost dazzles her merchants to think of. In the House of Assembly last Thursday, Mr. Christie, member for Gaspi, generally a modest and unassuming nnyi, in the course of some remarks, on a bill to consolidate the laws, Are., dropj>ed he following nflher ominous warning, for the benethe ministry:? The whole tendency of their measure* had been towards revolution. lie would move amendments when .n committee. Mr. Baldwin Mid the hon. gentlemen had forgotten the rebellion losses from his enumeration. (Laughter ;rom the ministerial side.) Mr. Christie said it bad been railed a farce, the other evening. It was a farce that might end in a tragedy, if the Governor gave his assent to the bill. Mr. Cameron?Would you assassinate him ? Mr. lhhistif. spurned tile ldi'h. nuU count not wimbold his contempt from the minister who dared to u? Furh on expression. It was a farce that might bring on a rebellion more sanguinary than thut of 18J7 and IMS. Mr. Lafontnine, I understood to pay, had noted well the words of the hon. member for Gaspe, and declared he would do all he could to maintain the public pence. Sir Allan McXabb tpoved for an address to the ftovenur General for conies of the petitions against the payment of the " rebellion losses." The ministry opposed the motion, on the paltry ground of expense of printing; ana, upon being told the conservatives would defray it, changed their tack, and pleaded the uselessness of it. The motion was of course lost. Such a display of nersonul cowardice is unexampled. This continually keeping of the rebel losses before the Parliament and country, is un excellent idea of the conservative members. F riday last being a holiday, both houses adjourned, on Thursday evening, to Saturday last^ when Mr. Ilincks introduced his bill remodelling the tariff. Long and tedious debnte followed, which I will send you nbridged and condensed in my next letter. Mr. Ilincks also stated his intention to move, on Wednesday next, a series of resolutions, granting provincial security for the payment of the interest in the stocks of certain railroads, especially t the Quebec and Halifax one. (Loud cheers.) The Gaspe Gazette contains a call for a public I mi cting, to protest against the rebel payment mea' sure, which begins thus :? Attention!?A ministry that has refused to grant our destitute neighbors any relief, has had the hardihood to require thut we should remunerate the rebels for their rebellion in Lower Canada. Loyalists of Uaspe. will you consent to tax yourselves and your children to pay traitors--to reword treason ! The report of the Montreal Hoard of Trade, for the year ending 31st of March, 1849, has been published. _ It is principally remarkable for the tone in which it deprecates "the |>olicy pursued by the mother country towards these colonics. On the failure of the usury laws, it has the following:? The nsury laws having occupied the attention of a prt ceding e'ouneil. (1S46.) whose expressed views upon the subjert were entirely approved of by the member* of tlio board; and your council, knowing that the question was to be introduced into Turliainent this session, did not deem it necessary to add unythiup to the able cpreseniaiion 01 inrir prcucceHssors: vney wouiu, therefore. merely remark, that. Id their opinion, the failure or the mcaeure for the lumcndmout of these laws, brought into the l.c|{islfttive Assembly by the Hon. Henry Sb< rwood. is niueh to be regretted. At the same time your council recommend to their successors that the subject should not be lost sight of nor abandoned, It being one of the most important to which their attention can be directed. It was rumoied in this city Iutely that the military foice at present in Canada was to be augmented by several regiments. Such is not the case. It is merely intended to increase the strength of the artillery by one company. This is in consequence of the" late augmentation in the artillery at f home, which renders it necessary, for the purpose of distributing them, to increase tnc strength of the stations/ The Upper Canada papers are still warmly arguing about annexation. The Toronto Globe, the servile organ of the present ministry, in a long article in his last issue, denies the statements in my letter to you, of the 22d ultimo, reluttve to the strength of the Orangemen in Canada. And in the end allows it might be the case; but even were it so, it does not believe they would break the peaee " for their pettish and crafty leaders." I send you the article itself, however ; and will only say, that not only do the Orangemen number 40,000" men, but were it necessary, would, for the purpose of sweeping the French race ofF tnc face of the country, and depriving the radicals of power, obey *'their crafty and sellisli leaders." liut I do not believe force w ill be necessary, livery day brings forth fresh evidence of the increasing strength of the annexationists, and no blood will ne required to t_ . .U.J t :?i. .1.. ~J:.? : pt* pu*ii . i ngrrr w mi im* ruimi *?i vuwtcit, that " one drop of English Mood abed by English bayonets in Ciinadn, would be the death blow of British connect ion."

The British party have at length wisely determined?they have talked long enough about their intentions?and, if they would not be laughed. E NE i, must now work. Of all the various plans, (and their name is legion,) for remedying the evils that afflict us, none have been looked upon with so favorable an eye, by the public, or the forming and calling together of a "national convention."? This convention, it is proposed, shall consist of a certain number of delegates, e^ual in numerical strength to the present House of Assembly, and to be U t ied, as the latter now are, by the suffrages of the various cities, counties, and boroughs, at preM-nt eligible to return representatives to Parliament, lite convention being formed, is then to meet, at some central point in the Province ; and^ on this ?r? ? uii-hh iru HO HH |?(H.r IUURI lik-tv to be selected.

There can be uodoubt in the muid ot any impartial judge, who will take the trouble to go into our newsrooms, and other places ot |Hihiic reaort, and there listen to the opini*-us enum lated by the most respectableCltuens of Montreal, on the benefits fo be derived from a connection with the republic, but that the tendency in tin* city lies wholly in that direction. On Monday ev< mug last, a preliiuuiary iiiertuigto consul* r the necessity oi forming a league to carry out the Convent ion, wa* held at Orr's hotel, in this city. A* it was nut public, and everybody invited by circular, no great number of persons were pn sent. I counted about thirty-five, amongst whom were many of onr leading men. A report was huLmitted. the b nor of whuTi was simply explaining the utility of the h ague, and the objecta it had in view. In this report it was proposed that it should he called by the name of the Anglo-Saxon U . l-iii '1 lis- linn I ,?'nrcri? MnHiif mnvint in nmniwL iwnl, that it be the Ari^'?>-< 'anadmn. lie st.it'-d ih:it there ?rt?' ninny person*, Franco-!'unudians by birth, who would desire to join such * league as tin- one they hud in view, hut tin party name would be en objection to tln ni. Several other names were suggested, such us llnlish American, lintudi Canadian, \'c.f Xc. Tue best |>art of the evening wna wasted in this frivnloua discussion, which lasted for upward* of three hours; and it wn* not till seme ingenious jwrson, a deep reader of the Swan ot Avon, and impressed with the jmicU, remark, "What's in a name!" proponed Hntish K? ague that the debate was brought to a close, and the latter name adopted. And thus, after all tin* spouting about nothing, a name was eventually selected having no meaning at all. 1 may a* w ell well remark that in the course of the evening it eked out that thrre would be no want ot funds. A provisional committee waa then formed to carry out lh? plan suggested in tiie rcjion, and a meeting appointed for that day week, at which all those pctson- wbo shall have put down th# ir names, and paid their subscription, w ill be entitled to attend and vote. The committee appointed consult* of thirteen member*. There are several good names on the list, active and energetic men ; but there are also several clogs. Ah it is only a, provthional conuniltee, however, these W ill soon be disposed of at the next meeting. It is rumored, ami, I believe, with much correctness, that Mr. Cameron, one of the present ministry, is shortly to resign his se.it in the cabinet, lie hu*, of late years, been unfortunate in business, and has publicly stated, that, from his connection with the ministry, he has been a loner of ft&CUOO. In the House ot Assembly, on Monday list, Mr. llouiion. (of Norfolk,) a red M rudie.il, m"\'-d that h bill to limit the number of executive functionaries, in this province, be read a second time. The bill was not to come into Ofienitinn until t October next. The first object was to reduce the number of the committee of the executive council. It at preaent consisted of ten members ; the cabinet of Kiinland of tiitren membera ; the (Tailed Main hud a cabinet, fixed by law, of nix members. The principle ho wished to inforce, wan, to invest resiton nihility in n entailer sphere ; ajtd the bill he had tin- honor to lay before the houw, promised to limit tin* number of the members of th? cabinet to si*, llethoutrht the board of works ought to hare no sent in the cabinet. It would be a very desirable saving of expense to have u? president of the council. Tie thought the effect of limiting the executive influence in the House would have an effect m mevvhat similar to increasing the representation. It was proposed that there should be one advocategeneral, and one solicitor-general. Another clause of the bill provided that no MMM Of salaries should be allowed to anv executive functionaries, unless the scale thereof had been filed by the pn>vineial |?rliument. There were many instances, since the union, of the lniprojwr expenditure of the public money, in this reap et. The honorable pentletnan proceeded, at some length, to aigue that the power of government, in this p-mi 'et. should be limited. In the l.'nited folate-, the President could not appoint any functionary without the consent of the legislature ; and the legislature knew the xact amount paid to nil publie functionaries. 8ir Ai.i.as McNa* said, we bad not the power of limiting the prerogative of the rr.wn in this respect Mr. Boi ltos mid, It was only in ordinary tine * that the number of the council should be limited t" six ?nd not that the crown should never bate the power "f ?p. pointing more. Mr Baldwin spoke against the bill lit thought it an infringement of the prerogative of the erown to at tt nipt to limit Uic number o| privy r< uric III r - and lie considered ft tube Injudicious to declare tint the cabinet should coD?-i?t of * certain number. at almost every change of parties the nutnlu r of pees,.us in th. cabinet *?? different, and persona h I ding rrrtaln of floes were included in aotne and excluded in utbvrs a* *?? found expedient.

The weather here is exceedingly mild. P. S.?English papers, brought ns by passengers, have just arrived in town. Much excitement prevails, in consequence of the enquiry instituted in the British House of Commons, relative to the rebellion losses bill. The remarks of the London Tirntt, recommending the loyal inhabitants of the coleny to make the best of tue matter, and submit to the chances, is universally condemned. The government despatches have not yet arrived, and many are the jokes bandied about, at the expense of the Governor General, as to the probable and well merited caetigation he is likely to receive from home. F. The .Wilmington, Hon., Tragedy?Examination of Pearsons, and his Committal for Trial. [From the Boston Traveller, April 13.] On "NV ednesdav, between nine and ten A. M., the bodies of Mia/Hannah D. i'etrson, and her twin daughters, four years of age, were found at tlieir , residence in \V ihnington, Mass., near Andovei, dead, with their throats cut,and otherwise mangled. This discovery at once created a great excitement utnong the inhabitants of the town, and u coroner's inquest wns assembled. It appears that the deceas ed hud for the lust eight mouths lived separately ft0111 her husband, Thomas 11. Peirson, who pretended to be jeulous of her, though it is the unanimous opinion of the towns-people, without a slut dow of cause. Latterly he had been employed in this city, and is not known to have visited the town where she lived. On the night previous to the finding of the bodies, the father of the husband visited her, when she appeared to be ui unusual good spirits. This is the last that w as seen of her ulive. Under the circumstances, the jury returned a verdict of wilful murder by some person or persons to them unknown. Yesterday, the huebund, who could not be found in this city, when they came to tell him of what hud occurred, made his appearance at the Western dejiot, and w-us forthw i th token into custody us the murderer. Upon his face were several scratches, which would seem to have been inflicted in the death struggle of the wife and mother. There w as also a maik u|>oii his w-rist, and another upon his arm. These marks he accounted for by saying that he got into a squabble with an Irishman in Providence; but when asked if he could point out the place where it happened, said that lie could not. The chief evidence against hint is. that he was seen near the house of the deceased on the night previous to the murder, and again the next morning was met on his way to the junction at Wilmington. The neighbor teinarkcd the scratches nix >n his face, but as Peiison seemed to be in a hurry to catch the curs, did not huve much conversation with him. After his arrest, he was taken to Heading, where several of his townsmen went in to see him. One of tlieni retnaiked to him that he had been to see his w ile and children, and a mote ghastly sight his eyes never looked upon. Peirson attempted to upl>ear unconcerned, but was only partiully success ful. He remarked that cases of suicide were always horrible, or something to that effect, it being lus design no doubt, to give the idea that she took Urr own in?* and iliat ul her children. Indeed, I after informing the dreadful act, the murderer placed the knife in the hands of the deceased, in a I way to IN coloring to such a supposition, had not theuiangled Mate ot the remains at once repudiated it. We leam further that the accused has been employ ed aa a domestic in a family at tiie West i.nd, in this city, for some years. That h week ago. he settled with his employer, saying that he was going to live ui the country. When arrested, he said that he had been on u journey to New York, and had been ubsent for five days, which was untrue, us lie was seen by differentjjpeiaOM in the vicinity of his w ife's residence on Tueaduy night and W canesday morning.

ReMAKKAIU-E CAItKEK AMD AKKEST ok A TlIIKF. ?Charles G. Perry ulias Samuel 1). Carey, alias George Kanthnm, alias G. F. Beaman, was arrested at Lowell by one of our police last night, at about twelve o clock, on the charge of robbery of u gold watch valued ut $ 100. and a breast-pin valued at f 100, the property ol Lieut. Renshaw, of the receiving ship Franklin, at the Churlestown Navy Yard. The stolen property was found upon the person of the prisoner, and he was brought to this eity this morning. About a year ago, Carey became acquainted with a res|>ec1uble young lady, io w hom he paid his addresses for a short time, but suddenly disappeared. This disappearance was in consequence of* his being arrested on a charge of stealing money from a letter, for which he wns sentenced totne House ol Correction tor six months. On his discharge, he wrote to the young lady that he had just arrived from England; that he had plenty ot money, and proposed marriage. Herself arid her friends, being dissatisfied with his account of himself, declined the prohibition. The next we hear of him is at Chariest own, where he was employed to drive a baker's curt. He was detected in embezzling money, and was discharged. He then went to work for a baker in Cambridge street, was detected in stealing, and was again discharged. His next appearance was at the N'utionul House, in the capacity of a waiter. Here he was detected in the act of breaking ojien a trunk, and received a third discharge. _ lie then shipped on board the I'. ?S. receiving ship I-'ranklin, and was employed us a servant. Home few days since he obtained leave of absence, and went W> Nashua to see the young lady above mentioned, and informed her that during his foreign tour, Prince Kodolph (we Eugene Sue,) had made him a present of a gold watch and breast-pin. lie was asked why he did not bring the articles with him, to which he replied that he whs afraid of being robbed. While ut Nassau, lie looked at a house, under pretence of purchasing it. He then returned to bis duly on lioaid the Franklin, stole the watch anil breast-pin, %uid absconded. Singular as was his career of ciime, his detection was still more remarkable. Having considerable vanity in his character, he dressed himself with a good deal of care, placed the stolen breast-pin in his bosom, and the watch guard tastefully about his vest, and had a daguerreoi\|ie likeness taken. The lieutenant, happening into the daguerreotype rooms, recognized the pin and guard chain as hin own. and it was through this likeness Unit lie wus at length detected, lie was taken to Chailestown for examination.

There was no proof, however, of his having committed the act, nor has any thing ever transpired to throw the least light upon the matter, until one day, week before last, when II' iikins went to Foxwell and confessed to It in that lie and a free negro by the name of Lewis < ulliten, destroyed his vessel, and that they were instigated to do so by llenry Miles Langley, who ai;o resides near Point Lookout.

Then will follow the new original satirical drama called "Socialism," which has been played during tho past week beforo crowded audiences, ami received with uumistakable marks of pleasure and su.1 iofuctlon; and when It is remembered that those said marks of approbation have eome from, shrewd and judicious persons, they are, on that account, most considerably enhanced in rulue.? This applause may be regarded as a condemnation of the miserable utnpinnieiu and criminal folly with whieh (sialism is fraught; and wenro inclined to think that Mr. Burton deserved to be ranked as a public benefactor for having done so much towards extinguishing the hopes of tiie modern philosophers Brougham's delineation of the self-sufficient, puffed up. and crack-brained advocate of and dictatorial lecturer up in Fourierism, or. more properly speaking, of Non llcis n. is strikingly accurate He is "to the manor born;" the "dicntieal" man. us Burton says in Dotnbcy. A better mode of exposing the failary and the absurdity of socialism-thgj hobby of those who ure on the best terms with themselves?could not have been adopted; and to Mr.Burton, the credit is due. We should like to hear that socialism is to be represented in it? true colors on every stage, from tlic Penobscot to the Pacific?from the Hudsou to tlie Suciuuicnto, and from the Thames to the Ganges. 1 lie very definition which is given of It, is at once suggestive of its baneful loudency. It is "uuivarsul equality 111 everything?as no one Is allowed to do anything foe himself, nothing is doue by anybody." "Socialism," wo predict, will have along run here. Let it have rope enough, by all nieaus. Jt'NE.
