Ow Canada C<i ru|a?<tnM. Qckibc, Uantk 8, 1855. JV Beignorinl Tenure Act? Revolutionary Publi cation* ? Commenctment of an Agitation for a Repeal of the Union with Great Britain, and the Annexation of Canada to the United State*? The Militia Bill? Split in the St. Patrick' * Society, 4-c. fc. Within the lut week a pamphlet lias made ita ap pearand from the printing office of Messrs. Bureau & Mareottee, of thia city, which ia creating no little sensation. It is upon the subject of the Selgnorial Tenure act, purports to have been written by L? Frere de Jean Baptiste, and bas for lti motto the words, "Pait, Pauvrt Pevple, Pait ." The great ques tion is, who is the real aut ior? some member of tie rouge party, without doubt, as its main object ap pears to be to applaud their Parliamentary speeches; but which ? This question I &hall leava, as one of no great importance to the readers of the Hkkai.d and proceed to a tew wordt on the production itself It is intended to nshist in the agitation which i'. isde term.ned to uia^o at the next election against the law of this session providing for the aboliti m ol feuda dues, and the t-tyle of appeal is so frsugot with in Btraction that 1 translate a few parage*. Alter entering very minutely into the d-Uils of the act and attempting to show that -he cemiaire liw baeu made the victim of a foulp'ot, ai-i will, if he resist not, tie made to pay dearly for his aupineueas, tie pamphleteer says:?

La Frere de JMn Baptiste recounts ia the most pointed man 5?', the abuses that hare arisen under the system. Be appeals to the love of the almighty dollar, talks of our imports increasad, our debt aug mented, our province Involved, and no help for it but "pate, pauvrepeuplt, pait." The spirit of disaf fection i runs through the whole, and the desire for P?rV8d? every page. "In 1837 we de molished the most execrable tyrannies, bnt since ?canl of utr^'agems, decsit, and en ticements, others have been imposed, walca, al borthensome in appearance, are not so in reality, and which are sapmng the very founia lions ot our public liberties." * * * * ? r<At eiec.

This is the naked truth. Tne Chambjr Is i ?f, "l"*? ? the government, but ue government to the master of tueCuamher. the master of the people, and God knows how sorely we have been whipped. Before 18.17 we were ill-treated *>? 4*7 we are betrayed, pillaged, so'd, ] abandoned by our own brothers, and that with a semblance of approbation on our part " ? ? * The people will learn the evils of our institutions ?niy when tley have felt the effect* of toem : and ?ne oay wi.l come when woun Is will be healed by ^ ^now, but the time will come wten the light will disperse the shadows." Tne Shh!i Ay ?S '^ce- royalty being established ia British America is playfully allud-td to, and tha re cent creation of baronets treated with the most cut ting sart asm. The people are called o^km to res jt ?he Beignonal act; the propriety of revolution is hlr.ted at mont broadly, and, by way of showinir how little Canadians would have to loie by euch a step, the pamphleteer thus urges them:? Bagland, who has withdrawn little by little the advantages wldch she gave us in her markets, while, 1 until very recently, preventing us from going elsewhere, has jimt recalled her troops irom Canada. It will be nec?Maajy for ua nowr t> gaird the oountrv for hsr, not for us, and pay the ?xper see of doing io. It it for this that our gov ernment would organize a corps ol two thousand men. a voluiiteer militia, to do this service, and that all the militia are to be armed in the ?priog. Wny all this? you will exclaim. Why, but W protect the country trom the Esquimaux of the North, or against those devils of Americans, who may soma day or other Uke it Into their beads to invade Canada. All thia will cost money. All this will augment the public debt. All this will increase the imports, whioh already bear heavily upon the 1 people, and to live will cost more. Tnen will ba the time to say: Pay, poor people, pay." The appearance of this p amphlet may be regarded as the commencement of a tenons and persevering agitation for the repeal of the Union and annex* Won to the United States; and, viewed in this light, it ia deserving of very parti :ular notice. It ! may not be generally known that the rouge patty evowed advasatesof annexation. In thefr published platform appears the following strong expression of opinion on the subject:? "Finally, and above all, the independence of Canada, and her annexation to the United States." Wnen it is remembered that no lees than nineteen members of thia patty occupy seats in the Honac of Aisemhy, and that even there they make no scruple about avowing openly their Opinions, the Importance of the movement and of the party who reprotcnt It, will be at oace per oeived. 1 he pamphlet, viewed in any light, is tha merest clap-trap- Siarcely one of its facts are well founded, and it bases its enUre argument npoa prin ciples, which, however popular in the palmy days of Robespierre, we may devoutly hope may not be gener ally accepted now. But it is not in 'ended for the pe rusal of h; embers of Parliament; it ig designed as an appeal to the passi ins acd prejudices of the most unlettered of our population, and the very fact that abuae of England becomes the surest passport to inch passions and prejudices, is of itself full of sig nificance. Our system of government is open to numerous objections, but it is not chargeable with those brought against it in the pamphlet in question. It ia true that the government is supposed to control a parliamentaiy majority, but they can do so only ao long as they continue to act in acjordacco with the well understood dishes of the people; and whea they fail so to act, and fail in consequence to on trol such majority, they ceaa? at once to exist as a government. The defeat o: the last administratis furniah?M the most abundant proof of this. At the dose of the session of ls5.1, they commanded a large parliamentary majority. During the recess it trans pired that they were not prepared to go on at once ?1th the important measures then agitating the country, and charges of conuption were made aealnit certain of its member. When thiy called the Home together in .luue last, it ceased to be a matter of doubt that they had determined upon postponing ttie eettlemept of the Clergy Keserve qaes?.,oa. Tney were defeated upon the second day of ths session, and compiled to dissolve the lloaie and appeal to the count'y, when they fared no bitter, and were compelled to give rjp the reina in September. Tae CMe alone is a clear refutation of toe ctiarge of Le Fre e Jean BsptUte. I shall watch closely the progress of this movement, and keep jou duly advised cotcerning It. not ?et brought down their Mllifia Dili Bir Allan McN'ab, however, has ai nouncel that he will ba jrepared to lay it bt-fore the Hoa?e on Tuesday next. It ia expected to elicit very warm discussion, although opposition to iU principle, the mtabiiahmect or a militia force, will come solely from the rovgt party, who, for reason a sufficiently apparent from the formar part of thia letter, are applied to any aach organization. It u one or thoae oueitioui which will involve the di? cuseioa of the future military policy of this country. For the first time we feel ourselves called upon to iaatitate a corps of defence to supply ths pla?e f or merly cccu pled by the British troops, and it?<*ms almost like the first *tep toward- Indepradence. We are not, however, to be le't altogether deotitnt* of the red coats or our mother land. The regiments, or rather the detarhmenis, now in tho coantry, are likely to remain here for come time longer. There baa been a serious split in the St. Patrick's Society of thia city. It appears that cn iha oc. caalon of the election of officers, certain parties, led bo by Ream, of Gavazxl riot notoriety, beat upon the re-election of Mr. Alleyn . late mayor of the city, as President, and beHering that opposition was likely to be manifested towards him. took foreihle possession of the reom. and so overawed their oppo nents as te prtrnl Umq expreeeing aa epiaioa. The oMtittiu, hnrn. ra ait n (? b? pst down, and accordingly thtj adjoaroed to Mother building, elected a separate bated of offloert, and I protested iftinit the riolwt and Illegal coodoot of ike ADeyn and Hearnttea.

Thit the Ions of the vessel in to bs attrt-outod, primarily, 1 1 the negli gence ai d caraiessnesi of tbe crew, or of su;o par tion thereof as were at the tim? e-tp totally entrusted with its safety, we think in tbe evldeuc- twe can be no reasonable doubt? hut as t e proximate or immediate cause of the disinter was a p.-ril ion in against, the defendants <roul<< be have if not I* etiarged on otber groan if. (G ttes vs. V adis m C >. ! j Mer. Ins. Co., 1 Seid., 478; Mathaws vs. U ?rd Ins. Co., 1 K'Tnnut.) Tne true question. ?a~< '.be only one which we deeui it nec ssarv to onudr at , length, U, w etner the vessel was unseawortny at the commencement of the v->)age, by reason of too conceded incomfetency cf tne master, (Cii>t?tn Greene,) as a navigator, there being, a. vert ,hh?, anuther pf reon on boaru (C?ptain McNeil ) to w iom was especially entrusted hj the owner tne duty of navigating ti e ship, and who is admitted to bava possessed competeut skill fur that puruse. Toe question is entirely a novel one, and its solution must depend on a correct ap plication of the genera* principles upon which the dtotrtne of s*a?ivthl nessieeta. The implied wairanty of ?eaw irtaiu :as has its foundation in Boual prluiple, and involves the element of good faith as batveen ihi contracting parties. The considera ion of toe coa- i tract as rejects the insured is Indemnity extraordinary perils. As reipec h the insurer, it is the chan e of gaining the premium; aud to >-r,ao!e him to do this, tne ship mus. be in a condition, when the poJicv attaches, to resist o diaary p ? ils and to accomplish the voyage under o -diaary riiks; and so essential is this, that the law d ?es not ro quire any express covenant on the subjajt, bat ab solutely avoids the contract, if in fact ;nis -tate of seaworthiness does not exist. The law implies, from the very nature of the contract, an undsr taklng on the pait or the insored that tne vms^I shall be capable of performing the voyage, and the violation or breaoh of this undertaking, taciuic ally termed a warranty, and wblcb is. in effwt, a coali tion precedent, defeats and puts an end to ihe co i ! tract, whether the loss be attributable to t e u sea worthy condition of the ves-el or not. The whole consideration falls as respects the iatnrer, and la the intendment of the law the contract naver exist ed, the risk bad never an inception. (1 Marsh. Its. cb. 5, see. 1, 8; T. R. 192.) To constitute fciis sea worthy condition, the vessel mast bi tig it, stauQou ! and strong? she mast be equipped witn everything essential to her navigation during the voyage, an] she must have a sufficient crew, both as to nu nbars and efficiency; and last, though by no means letst, she must have a master or commanding ofliier of competent skill, prudence and experience at least to conduct the navigation of .the vessel, if not to nnet the rrapoi bibiiitles of those sudden and decisive emergencias in which by his own act he ofien de termitus tiie rights and liabilities or the parties to the contra t. (1 Marshall, above cited ; 1'ark las. ,cb. 11; 7 T. R. ltt); 3 Kent, 7th ed.. 356-7; 5 Mass. Hep., II; 1 Amour's Ins., 684.) Ia every definition of noaworthiness to be found in tae books, a master of competent skill is invariably included, it is contended in the presaut cm. and foi the first time, it ia believed, that if the sk ll be present, it Is by no meant essential to the war ranty that it reside in the master, and that it equally answer-) tuo requirements of the cojdi tion if it be round iu another officer or person entrusted with the navigation simply. It is said that this d >e? not dispense with the necessity of a coamandiug officer known as matter or captain; but that the du ties of the latter ex end to a variety or objects other than that of mere navigation, and that a vessel may be as well navigated by another person of o< , u %l skill as by the master him -elf: and that as the war ranty requires onh that the vessal shall be ia a con dition to acciniplish the voyage uudar ordinary pe rils, it is sut? t .ntially oomplied witn whea the re quiaite qualifications to successfol navigation a;e | presort, ho ?evei dis ributed as to persons. That, for example, a km? I is as seawort ny within trie of the warranty, with a master unskilled in navigation, but with a competent sailing mattor, or other pi'wn to conduct the navigation, on board, uthough tLeaa.ttr were himself posses^d of all toe necessary qutlificatiOLj of a skilful naviKator as In the case at the bar. It may well be doubted whether it Is not a sufficient ?n. rer to this to say that a coo ; trary Uiiderataadiog of the aatura an i definition of seaworthiness having for a long time, If not always, prevailed, the partus may be said to have ex tracted in reference to the latter, and toat thr de fendants are now preclude! fnm setting up a cifer ent interpretation of their engagement. Bit apart In m this, there are consider ati ins which, in oar judgment, render ths novel theory untenable. It is as essential to sue jess ia the navigation of a vessel that the person, waoever he may lie, who is entrusted with it, should 1* clothed witn tie requi site authority to enforce his commands, as that ne f-honld possess the necessary skill in the science ltfelf. The nature of the employment requires |ier lect subordination on the pait ol the seame i an i inferior officft The exlgen ies or the navigation itself freqoflw require not onlv consummate skill and presence of mind on tbe part of tk:e person con ducting it, but toe oxer ise of anab:olate authority, which calls for, and can euforoe, Immediate and unquestioning obedience. Tie service in which ho (the master) In employed is one of unoommon peril, not only requiring great skill, bat often demanding gnat promptitude of decision and action, aad ad mitting no time or delay t r deliberation, reasoning or expostulation. Upon him is imposed tbe obhga tion to mee'. and provide lor thoae emergencies, and if therein not an insantaneoos obedience to his orders ir. may involve the lode of the ship and all who are in it."? (Flanders M 5, s.54.) Hence, it is r > S- te that both essentials- the skill and tht aa tv? shou'd be united in the same peson; other wise, In the emergency which cali.^ for their exer cise, the catas'rophe to be avoided might become { inevitable. Indeed, so palpable is this trulh that the able counsel who advo.ate' the doctrine in <}U6stion were forced to admit that with the nau'.i- > cal skill must be combined the power of disdjjjta-); but tbey contended that this power did ac tually reside in Mr. Neil, sct<-;g either by a deputed authority from (i ?ere, or by authority derived from th* ownrr of tbe vessel , and that disobedience to Mr. Nell contrary to the orders of Greene, would be disobedience to the master hunseir, and, of coarae, punls&able as each. There isnoevidene that Mc^'ei. actei by any deputed authority from Greene, even if the lav ter could depute such an authority. H s whole ' i>ower was derived from the commission which he held from Draper, the owner or th.* vessel. Hot apart from this, the theory or the plaintiff's connse' requires that Greene should acquiesce in, and en rorce, the orders which McNeil was to give; aad It virtually concedes that In the absence or such acquiescence, or or unanimity between them, the ?kiil might become inoperative from the want t f the i cceasary Authority to enforcs its orders. Until, therefore, it ia snown that (ireene, as master, was under a necessity or enforcing the orders which Mi Neil, as navigator, might gi7e to tbe seem a and subordinate (dlfter*, the whole theory lacks the only elernert whieb caa give it pi insibiuty. rtoot then being tie necewity of authority combined aitb skiii, in tbe p< rson entrusted with the iiaviga tioa of the vessel, 'he warranty, when it ca'ls for the skill , calls alif <oi tbe authority, and whoever be the offioer, or ptrs in, in whsm toe latter resides must be tbe one to rK r.*.'* the former within tie meaning of tbe contract, rhe law for the proles tion of commeice, with all its entrusted into mm of property and life, las wise;,' clothed one person, ana )>ul one. with all the authority requisite to the security ot those Inter* s's, and the su^cessfol dis ctarge or the haeardoas duties involved in the navigation or tbe veaael, aad that (terson is tlie master.

(1 Ftat. at large, IT'.tO, ch. 29.) Am ing other things, these statutes provide thai a seaman w jo has net sigiicd these art Ues shall not be boned by the re guLatiots. nor hubjec; tithe penalt-es and forfeitures ccntain'd in the act, and which reguiitions, penal ties and forfeitures prescribed bv tie statutes, aii p hp hare thus pre scr.hed for the more effectual 1 prctection of the authority n{ the ma?tT, as well as t>e tights of the s<*m".n; n Ither coold he be guilty ? cf desertion within tbe m 'aning of the atatate, which deflnes that offeree to be tbe ahssntiog of himself by a teaman who his signed a contract for the voyage, without leave of tbe master, or officer in the absence of toe master. Tnere are also statutes providing for the punishment of mutiny against the master, and for the panLinoeat or tbe master hinueir who, in a foreign p n-t, for ?s ) a seaman m above.

Tne ! power of oitmissing or iimoving a teaman rests wholly aith the muster, (3 Kent, 7 Ed., 237,) and it is bis an'bcrity, directly or HObjidiaatelj, iu the inferior rfficem, when on duty, to which they owe obedience. Nor is tbis power or removal confined to the Cise of the suatnea oiily, bat in a proper esse toe mauler may rcaoee the subordinate officers also. (Thomas ja vs. Uaoh, 4 Ws*h. C. C.

This authority of the martor over the ctew awl * ib ordinate offine:s reas not alone upon tho neoea?ity ol preservitg discipline on board the ship, nor ex clusively upon the contract between liiin-olf and ?ne seamen by virtue of the shipping articles, hut it has ita ong.n partly in the fsc?. tliat the nisater is himself |>frflor>al)y lesponfflble t> hii owiie-s and to others for bia conduct a-t master for any iojQ'y or loss to the ship ->r cargo, by reason of kus own negll cfto< c or mlsoondact, or that of the me a whom hs employe. Thia responsibility attachhi to him by viitue of tbe supremacy of hie office, and it U truo of no other officer in the ship. It hu ita anilogy in the responsibility which attaches to tue supreme bead In all government*, and, aa in tbe ci* of the latter, find* its compensation in the authority which accompanies It oyer those for whese conduct tbe responsibility ex'sts. (3 Kent, 236. AbbH, 231. Flanders on Hhlpplng, ?'M>. Htooe ya. Kelland, 1 Wash. C.C.',R.. Hit.) If su h to tbe nature and au thority of tbe office of muster, an! such the reA tiocs between himself and crew; and if it to true, as most evident, that the Hkill and the authority must t>e both united in the same person, then U U manifest that the warranty of seaworthiness is not complied with, when the authority Is all in the master, aid the skill in a subordinate person. This would be true, wer? such subordinate person known to the law , huch as first mate, the next higher in authority ; but the truth of the proposition becomes more pa pablv manifest when the person in whom the skill rot ides occupies so anomalous a position as that held by Cipt. McNeil. Ilia duties were those of a sailing master, an office familiar In the laval service, but entirely unknown to the mercantile matins. In case of the de?th or absence or the matter or th*? occur rence ot any event by which ha is rendered it competent to the discbarge ? f his duties, the jight and form of the ofli e devolve on the nexl ia command, the drat mate, an office kiio*nto and vecosbized by the law.

Tho Htbuian ships subjoct to tbis very contingency, and well knowing and undersUnding, and assenting to the rule; but the nondescript office of *a:llnie master he knows nothirg ot, and is not bound to tecopnise either bv the ussges of tto service, the B stlnte law. or his coutrait with the master.

Could he bave contested thW r ght with the chief mate ? Alowin^ that hw commission gavo bim some rights, tbey gave him u? end rlxht as this. Tee law of the marine, with which alouo ttie insurer has to do, give* the right of succewion to tee next < fficer in rank, and no private >trrar gemant between the owner and McNeil, not known aud assented to by these defendants, could 1 bate affa Jted taeir iiglis ?h?t. l'ie cBonld Or suo cetded by a competent officer, c thed by law with tbe ntce?*ar> authority to en'orce dis inline. M: Nell would have occupied iu iespect to the mate, precisely ihe position which ue Ud maintained in re'ation'to the master. O'oed<once won'.d have bean due not to Lim, but the niate, and his position would continue to be what it had been from the first? an anoma'cus post of duty, with out responsibility or power. If this vie* bi correct, and if. aa it stems to be oaceyd. the mate was a competent seam in, then in what respect, aa regaide seaworthiness does the casa difle from wi at it wsuld have been had t >e ?es-?). left New York without McNeil on b?ard^ The skill to navlgat-! would have bjen equ \Uy present in the p< non of the mate, and with tie advaOag* of bis posses sing some authority, and th<! right to claim tne succession in casj of the master s deoeaae; and jet, ran it be pretended the vessel would, under sucb clicumsUnte*, b?vo b?eo d?einei sev wcrthy witliln the meaning tf the warranty? But there is a broader aspect in wfclih I tblak toll doc trine of sea wortluu?"se, as re-pects the master, way well be regarded. When tbe powers and duties of thia office, apart from the exorcise of mere nautic*! skill are tsken into consideration, some of them In volvisg tie power of ilxlug the liahi ity of the iosu rer himnelf, it Is clear to my mind that the parQ*, when tbey enter Into the contract, contemplate in the wananty of aea worthiness, In its application to the master, not merely a skilful navlaator, but a person of sufficient experience in bis cilling, and or adeqnaVe judgmi nt and prudetoe, to to equal ti ti, cite emtrgencbs In which, bv his ofllciil act , be may dtte.mire the U?bili'ie? of the parti s.
