AFFAIRM A. r G 4KTA., Ac., &0., &4. The London 7mft, in a loader on the question of the India cotton supply and the conference to be held at Man' Chester, repeats the opinion that Manchester must be piepared not ouly to ugitate, but to act. What the In dian cultivation wants is a remunerative market, and that Manchester must he prepared to ofler if Bhc would meet the prceeot and the future t ifficultles, even at the coet at first ot a suiali difference between its price and that of America. The Iiondoo Time* Bays the public are beginning to re cover con tide hk in the United Status, and to recognise the fact that no political alterations that may take place will be Ukel; to disturb the channels to which the busi ness of the country has through generations naturally adapted itself. According to the correspondence of the ConstitutionneI, Cavour intends asking a Tote of conlidence from the Chamber on the four following points:? 1. (Hi a loan of from three to Ave millions?the exact amount is not yet determined. 2. ruclamatiou of Victor Emanuel as King of Italy. 3. On c&lJiiig under arms all the military reserves. 4. Absolute investiture of the King with all power for an unlimited time. The Maviocoiiiato, with Garibaldians on board, left Gib. ralur for London on the 231 ult. A despatch from Rome dated Jan. 26, says:? The 1'outitlcuJ Zouaves, favored by the night, attacked the Sardinian volunteers at Oorreue. Two Sardinians were killed, six wounded, and tifty made prison-rs and coovejed to d*y to Rome. Ihe I'ledmontese at Ourrose have since been reinforced. The Sardinians are also threatening the province of Frosinone; the reactionary bonds on the frontiers are in cousoquenco grettly dis couraged, and are beiug pursued, betrayed uud left en tirely destitute of money and arms. A Copenhagen letter says that public opinion approve* in every point the energetic measures of delcnce which the ministry have ordered, by sea and land, in resistance to the pretensions of Germany. Denmark has arrived at the last limits of concession. Gunboats are undor con struction drawing very little water, for the purpose of running up the waters of Germany, so as to cut off all communication by sea The CM DeuU' he I'ott says;? Tbere is no doubt that the convocation of th? Imperial Afttembly of Repiesent^tivee. elected by direct pipular vote In the Gerinan and Sciav .Lian provinces, will take place at an eirly perio-i?most probably in April. Auttrit is increasing her means of defence. She has just contracted with a house at rrl<?te for the construc tion of two iron plated frigates The manufacturers of arms in TburiLgen are unable to execute all the orders sent to them r'rotn the different tier man States, especial ly Iter aria, Wurttmburg, Hanover and Baden. They have also be< n cocnptllc to refuse orders from Russia. The Berlin letter of the "i.d has the following:? Great activity is displajol in advancing the equipment of the Prussian army which, as is well k o?o, has been considerably incie*fed. Extensive orders have recont'y b< en given to private establishment*, instead of b.ivmg ever) thing made, as nsi al, in the military workshops The workroeo of the amllery are occupant iu preparing the material required for tortlQiations Viksxa, Jan 29, lSdl. Prinee Petrulla, Ambassador of King Francis II. at VI. enna, has received an wit >graph letter from (iaeta, in which the King declares that he intends to flgtit to the last. It is stated that ou I'ruice Petrulla's d-minding at St. Petersburg for wluit reason M. de Woikousky, Russian Minister, had left Gaeta, I'riuce Gortoliakoff replied that the representative of Russit was more useful t ? francis II. at Rome than at Ga>'t,i. According to the Paris correspondent of the London Jwnet, the chances of peace are very fair if Austrii will not be the aggressor, If Piedmont continues pa.itlc. and if Garibaldi romains quiet in bis isle. A Berlin letter says tint King of 1'russia is p-rmi'ti'.g the old retrogade party to luiluence li in more aa i more every day. Every point of the Prussian coan ic "essi >ie to the Danish fleet is being fortified, and s vor jl gun boats were placed on tbt stocks on the day Gen de It Marmora arrived at Berlin on a complimentary, and, it Is said, pari tic mission. Tlio Berlin GaietU publishes a hostile article on Italy, which is regarded in Germauy as an engagement taken by tbe Prussian government to assist Austria should sha b< attacked in Veuetia, even by the Italian:- alone. ljOMnoNnKKRY.

Hamilton Inlet be found I /O miles long, and varyirg In width from 20 miles to half a mile. Its depth ww very irregular, and seldom sufficient to secure an unmernod cable from disturbance by icebergs. The second paper waa written br Captain AUin Young, who cowman* od the steam yacht F?x, on its e*(iedltlon last summer to survey the telegraph landing place*; It waa read in hi* absence by Mir Charles Bright. In bis opinion the cable should be laid beginning from the east coa*t <x Iceland towards the Faroe Isles, because the fogs and easterly wind* prevailing In the summer on that *ide Ot Ice<and would make it 'lllllrult to laU'l a cable there. From Ic* laud to Greenland the length of cable required would be about 800 mile*; be thought it would be imprac ticable to carry it across the interior of Greenland, and the bMt landing place would, therefore, be near Jttlian hliaab, ou the south western shore. The third paper waa read by I>r John Kay, giving a very entertaining account ot bis journey by land across the largest of the Faroe Isles, and alterwarda from the east tide of Iceland to the town of Kcikjavlk, to ho*' h >w ctsily a telegraph cable might be carried on the backs of pouies and along the road He described the people in botb of those remote insular Hanteh provinces aa being the mo t ktndl> .(,1'eaiily, intelligent and hospitable race of na tives that be had ever met with, pra siug i?p"Cially the Simple maimers and morals of the Faroes*.

Mr. Hare is well known as a prominent turfmin in Virginia, and Mr. lniryev's reputatiun aa a liberal and high minded g|x>rtamau ui not oonlined to the republic of South rarollna. Having said thus much for the owuers, we will now bay something about the horse*. Delphine hi an animal which bus attracted so much attention in Vir ginia tlmt bhu ie thought to belong to Class No. 1.

When the oider was given to saddle and come up, ana the horses were mounte I and stood ready at the starting 1 post to be sent e IV on their doubtful struggle, the excite ment whs Immenso; a moment longer, and tlie drum is tiiniied, and they si>od uway with a sound as of llylng pinions flapping in the air. Faster and faster they sped on in their terrible speed, aa if not to keep in suspense tho crowd that turned to gaze upon them; horsemen, with lefscr speed, rushed along each side of the track to meet thetn, an 1 to anticipate the lt*ue of tho race, ir pos sible. In a lew moments thoy havo gone round, and reached the large snd noxious assemblage that lined tno track, gathered near tho coming-in post; a loud hum, and they have rut-hed by liku a whirlwind; the specta tors enjoying the sport and viewing the auimatod scene wiih unmitigated di light. #.??i. On starting Planet made a rush and took thotracti, Albine gracefully biding her time, about Tour lengths in the rear. In this order they ran the first mile. <>u entering upon tho second mile, Albine closed up th gap between her opponent and herself ; and now the spe ed was considerably incicased. Ou going down the back Btrctcli of the course, no advantage was obtained by one or the other?at a merry pace, neither having mended position by a > ard or foot of ground-thoy rattled on side by side, and thus swuug together into the home stretch. The pace now became every jump more and more improved, and yet, which rendered this part of til? race so beautiful, both horses wero evidently running within thimselves. as though with plenty of power and spcod kept in careful reserve for the tlnal struggle. in passing tho coming in post, at tho termination of tho third miile. which was done In one minute and 111ty one seconds, I'lane t was about a length on tlie lead, but, on getting iout.d on tho opposite Bide of the course, Albine was again At his Bid?. Shoulder to sbouldor, Di'ck and neck they ran. It was thought, as it Is speed, not distance, that generally tolls tales, that, from the rate thev were now going, one or the other would pnbaldy cry enough But not so. The end of the third mtle hid found them still running together with un tlinching game .Tho position throughout the first portion of tho last mile was unchanged. With about the same siieed and action they ran tho lust mile that thoy had ac c' mpliBhei the other three. They were, as usual, side by tide, until they got to the last hnlf-iuilo post, when tho ri-'er i n Albino called upon her for a final etfort, " to do now or uio," and she gallantly responded by stealing gradually away from her opponent, Planet made an at t, mpt to be even with his gallaut adversary at the finish, but the tflort, though a noble one, and deaorving of vic tory, was fruitless and unavailing.

THE ANNEXATION OF CANADA. Oar Toronto Corrrtpondciirc. , Tokomto/.O. W , Feb. 11, 1WI In I lie great events thu agitato the Amerlc*n Uuion there Is much to Interest the minds of Canadian piliti ctans. Our provincial, dependent position is looked up mi by some ue an evil that can be now best removed by u uijiou in wme shape with the free states of tho North; while others regard with pious horror anything like a severance of British connection. There ran bo little doubt that after the exclusion of the principles aud the rejection of the fact of slavery by a Northern confederacy ol' the disunited States, a large majority of the Cauadian people would be in favor of joining the republic. The idea of acquiring a nationality is strougly impressed upon all classes of the community, and especially iipm the mind of Young Canada. This feeling ha* bueu observed by our own legislators and by the home government; and to divert it into a safe channel tko latter have eucouroged the scheme of a federation of the British American provinces. This at best could only make as a large dependency, render our non-existence among the nations more con spicuous, and, by depriving the provinces of individual at lien, rivet the chains the faster that bind us to a people who, for the name of power, would deprive millions of their nationality. In becoming a portion? and an impor tant portion?of the great Northern nation that wilt surely rise from the ashes of the former Union, the people of the two Canadas w ill receive a new impetus in their rapid progress, while they willleel a patriotic pride instead of ? petty jealousy at the prosperity of the other States. They will be justly proud of their nttional suc cess, and feel that they are not merely a satellite to Britain, wasting their beet exertions but to increase the importance of her colonial empire. Another advantage that uiany see in the anticipated connection is tho great influx of American capital that would ensue, and the opening up of all our facilities for manufactures. Although British capitalists invest thoir money in our railways, minus and steamships, thoy leave us to our own resources in manufacturing enterprise; and since we are too young a country to have rnauy accumu lations of wealth in the hands of individuals, we should foel the beueiit of American capital to devclope our full resources in this respect. 1 ho Canadian press, for the most part, in order to keep up appearands, allect a devoted loyalty to British con ncction. It cju easily bo understood that howuvo'- much editors may be secretly in favor of a great political change?in fact a revolution? they will bo very cautiO'is in their public expression of opinions against tho ttalus ifiio when there are 110 vei) pressing grievances to de mand a change, ami when the vviiom scheme is in a crudo state, let the advantages oi the step be fully demonstrated to- the people, let them have op potlunitUs lor cxpitscing their opmiouH. aud we will tee how hihjU the pre>s will be almost unanimqus in sup porter the movement No portion of these colonies is so much disposal towards annexation a< the western pi niusula of 1'pper Canada, it we except that jiart of th<> lower province which is lunno' iately adjoini g the St ite of Vermont, aud was mainly settled by Araoricans It only requires sonw little time and proper explanation? to uiduce that portnn of lior Majesty's dominions to signify

an intention of quietly renouncing its allegiance. We cannot believe that Ureal Britain would attempt the use of any coercive means to opp so her Amerlcni colonies in their efforts for independence, if we are at liberty to form an opinion from the lxuiiou Times and the press generally whenever they mention the subject. At this mo,?t critical moment, when Canadians are balancing in their minds the expediency of cut ting the British connection, a deliberate insult Is ollered to the country by an attempt to interfere with the independence of our colonial judictluro, and to override the decision of our eourts by an Knglish co.irt of no higher Jurisdiction l'Ue peopic of Canada to a man feel piqued and insulted by the writ of habeas corpus in tho Anderson ense; and the Judges of eur Common l'lois, immediate!) upon luarmg of this, granted a habeas cor pus, under wh'ch Anderson is now being tried by them. The Knglish writ is now, I nnuersiand. in Toronto, in tho hunds of the Secretary of the Anti Slavery Socioty, and will not be served unless tho judgment of tho Common I'leas is against the fugitive; and although the Cuiadian peeple are completely opp<ifed to hts rendition, they are equally opposed to the principle that Is involved in this encroachment upon the independence of our courts. There are many surmises as to the probable decision of our Common I'leas; it is, however, the general opinion that the court will not be unanimous against the prisoner. Canada and the Northern Confederacy. TO THK EDITOR Of TDK IlKKALD. Montbbai., C. E., Fob. 11,11SI. The rooont overtures made by some leading journals and politicians in the United States to a union between Canada and the Northern States are exciting a good deal of attention in the province; not that we have much to complain of in our presunt relations with England, but for many reasons of a local as well as national character The movement going on In the Southern States, uud the hopes of a peaceable solutton totho question of separation between the two great sections of the American Union have set the peoplo of this country to thinking seriously whether it may not be a lilting time to deliberate on a fu ture and permanent state of national existence. It Is bu natural tliat peoples, living In contiguity to each other and possessing, in the aggregate, common interests and similar institutions, should seek a common bond of social political and commercial security. Nothing but unmean ing political traditions, it may safely be affirmed, can prevent such communities from arranging themselves under a common standard. In European countries these traditions have popnested greater tenacity and force from two principal causes?namely, the ignorance of the masses and the peculiar forms of government which place the power of tho State in a limited number of hands, who find it their Interest to support a number of little or great reigning families. In America the condition of things is materially different. Here the power of the State everywhere rests on the broad basis of public opinion. Every man feels that, though a unit, his vote or influence has some appreciable weight In the government of his country, and no man can hope to rise to the dignity of a statesman without studying the in terests of the masses who have elevated him to power. Hut, with all the advuntages which England lias conceded to Canadians in regard to self government, there is still to be found a considerable cUf s in this country who ad here to the traditions of British control and sway. It is rot at all an uncommon thing to hear men of ardent tem perament and strong British feelings harangue at the hustings in favor of maintaining "Intact the British con stitution in their provinco," &e., as though that constitu tion had ever or could ever bcoomc tho principle of go vernment in a country possessing none of the elements or peculiarities which gave It an existence in the mother country. Now, nothing is bettor calculated to sliake off such utterly meaningless prejudices and traditions than tho stirring events going on in the various sections of the United States. If these events lead to a peuseable solu tion of the present difficulties, and tho opposing elements which have so long warred against each other shall quietly separate, and each tind its national affinity, the sjiectacle will be one of the grandest ever witnessed or of which we have any ac?mnt in history. There are thou sands in this country who have looked on the magnificent drama enacting before them, and of which they are calm, though by no moans uninterested, spectators, whose most devout aspirations have bi>en that the Ame rican people may set an example to the world, even in their breaking up of old combinations and the forming of new ones, free from those disturbing and antithetical elements Hhould tho prisent throes of the great repub lic result in producing, without resort to the sword, two powerful confederacies, there will ultimately be nothing lost, and possibly a great gain. When that has been ac complished in a peaceable manner?when this new politi cal and territorial arrangement has been effected between the present United Stales?the chief objection that tho people of this country had to joining a confederacy of older States will have been removed. What chiefly strangled the annexation movement in Canada, eleven y< ars ago, was the cry about Joining a union of States which required ' the extradition of slaves. I<et the slave element be rWWW<( ami then an apical to our people may have a chanee of receiving an early response. This response will be the more effective In consequence of certain local and family difficulties of our own. We, too, have our union and disunion questions. Western Canada Is getting very restive under our present system of government, which vtitually gives the balance ot power to Eastern Canada, where the French go nearly '?n mas* in carrying out their policy, whilst the Anglo Canadians caii seldom agree upon anything. Hence the idea of a federation of the British colonies, In order to seenro to each section an independent legisla ture, has ef late been much discussed. Such an idea will at once vanish before the tar more brilliant destiny of beoomicg Slates of a great Northern confederacy, with Its capital located on the borders of Canada, if not in Oinada Itself. Where, Indeed, could a more flttlng place be chosen for the capital of such a government than on the banks of the Niagara, overlooking the mighty cataract itself. H would matter little whether it were on the right bank or the left Its central position. Its salubrity, its proximity to ths great lakes, abundant supply of the finest watar and approaohabillty, both by land and wa ter, render It by far the best possible Rite for tho future capital of a great Northern confederacy. In ten years more the Kails of Niagara will be tho centre of population, oommerne and all the important elements required to constitute a fitst elans nation !<"t us see how the matter stands now in respect to popula tion :?

The money market continues dull, with a good demand for choice names. Foreign excli&uge closed steady. We note to day an increased de mand for Treasury notes and an advance in the price. Some of the stock operators who have been buy ing for u rise thought that this >va- a good dav to well, and tiojordingly realized un a large propor tion of their stocks. The market gave way under the supply, and lower prices ruled on several of the speculative stocks. The decline was, how ever, very small. Between the boards the market was steady; in the afternoon stocks fell off a frac tion, clo^ng steady. Rumors are abundant with regard to the political negotiation at Washington; each operator has one or more despatches favor ing his view of the case. The fact is, however, that we, in New York, are at le.tst as well i situated to form a judgment on the case as people in Washington; and the opinion of well informed parties here is that the Peace Conference compromise is the enter ing wedge to a final adjustment of the whole afl'air though it is very likely that the negotiation may be prolonged for some time.
