From all appearances England will force upon the Doited Status a war. Dor preparations are of so menar lug a nature, so iruiy waruae, u u> causa uie wunu tu appreciate the steadiness, the malignity of her determibattOB She ttnds the United States engaged in a deadly enfllet, hampered by a civil war of the moat trying and unnatural kind, and at once she seizes upon the first pretext to endeavour to destroy a Power that she fears and hates. She will, she thinks, wipe away the stain of her former defeats: while her hated rival is already at war, aha will strike a deadly blow. Prance and Austria approve of this course; they have, unasked, signified as such to ths Cabinet of St. James. Or course they have. They hate and fear that great republic which is a living Md growing (eproach to their despotism and tyranny. They will liound on England; for, be she victor or vanquished, they gain thereby. The Powers they feared will be crippled, and their accursed governments leas in danger from the deserved anger of their people. England, who, had yon spat in her face a few months since would have calmly wiped away the insult, murmuring Something about "hearty cousins," now Jumps at any pflstext to commence a war of extermination against youIf war there should be, who will have been directly responsible for so great, so awful a calamity?

Why, It aha can carry things with so btgb a band, did not she espouse the cause of Portugal in tha Charisa at Oborgee allhir off Moimnbique? A more flagrant breach of international law waa never committed than that of the French against the Portuguese; yet Eng land stood with folded arms, knowing too well with whom she would have te measure weapons. Portugal is almost as Scotland to England?on all other occasions her closest ally?yet sheoould forget it all when it was convenient to do so. The Court of France is In fall mourning for Prince Albert's death. But nothing is allowed to cast agloom on this proverbially gay season of the year. The shops are put ting out their noutvautet, their bijouterie and wonderful specimens* of the national ingenuity, with all their wonted enegry. ttiroux out-Herods himself. Such pa miter* tie chemime, such marqueterl, buhl, and work in the new Algerine marble, which resembles a melange of alabaster and Derbyshire ware, were never before , seen. Moderation' in prices is the order of the day; and really some of the clocks, and other things titled up with similar appendages, i ttsxtraurdinarilv cbean. A very beautiful Inkstand in I oak, with aa exce.lent clock, warranted of perfect works, is offered for forty-two franca. Tlie bronzes are truly magnificent, and be has also some exquisite original paintings, 11*> lowest price of whicb is a thousand francs. The little buts which annually spring into life at Christmas?more with regard to tho jour de la it than to that great festival?are now lining the whole g files of the Boulevard, from the church of Le Madoiaine down to the Faubourg SH. Antoine, a distance of so rue three miles. To appreciate the pleasure these little magazines afford you must come to Paris. It seems strange that when the ordinary shops are always full to the brim of svsry imaginable toy for children, these little warehouses of second rate articles should still rstain their popularity. But to the Parisian mind they are ever new. For a year they fall back into repose, only to spring up again with renovated lustre. What they offer one year is pretty much the same as the next; but the novelty is in the minds of the visiters. The fond memory of what they were the year previous has served as a nest egg for other expectations, and when they appear, de noro, both oid and young arc ready to givo thein the j credit of having fulfilled such expectations, whether they j have or not. Ihe purchases made are enormous. Everybody goes to one, and few. very Tew, return empty handed. The children, fresh emancipated from all scholastic thraldom,are seen toiling to their homes, with difficulty balancing either bags of bon bons or drums, mechanical instruments, oranges, Liliputian balloons,horses, carts, beer barrels; and whole services of dinner and tea ware. The pater familia* Is obliged to lend a hand, while tho maternity holds with ono hand her muff to her nose, to prevent the rubicund effect of the frost, and with the other guides the youngest of hsr fry. Trumpets sound the alarum from one end of the fair city to the other; drums make an incessant roll, and detonating squibs perpetually shock the nerves of septuagenarians, who lor the life ol' them cannot prevail upon themselves to keep at home at this holiday season. Christmas day, ordinarily so partially observed in Paris, was this year quite a diet fettxu. The shops were all closed, and in the afternoon all the world was afoot; and, judgiug from the multiplicity of provender laid in the day before from all the comestible shops, I should judge that there was hardly lees fasting here than on your side the Atlantic. One great scene of attraction was tho Dots de Boulogne, where ihe lakes were frozen over, and admitted thousands of skaters. The long frost of last year has been instrumental In introducing this accomplishment much more than formerly among theFreuch population, and yesra*.l*?'a ATiwrttiMa nrrticwl tha nrov,.rhisl fthilltv with which the modern Gaul can adapt himself to every species of noeieaute, whether in drees or amusement. The weather continues frt sty. The thermometer marks 31 1.3 Fahrenheit. v'fhe remark made in Mr. Russell's last letter to tho L'ndon 7*1 nut?-'considering the animosity of the South towards England, and the syin|<alhies which connects large mass of tho democratic party with (lie Southern politic.ans, it is not quite beyond the range of possibility that a compromise or truce might arise, in which the republican party would be either defeated or forced to desperate extremities, and that eventually a reconfederation might be effected, the animating principle of wh.cb would be resistance to the enomy"?has created peculiar interest in diplomatic circles In Paris. Last night, among parlies in close proximity to the Court, I heard very strong sentiments' expressed in favor of the most rigil neutrality. '-Good Cod," said one gentleman in tho hearing both of l'ersigny and Prince Napoleon, '-will France be so mad as to aid England in crushing a maritime Power which, if suflbred to deveiope itself, must neutralize the might of England on the only arena w here she is really formidable. Should it happen that the North and youth shall be ready to compromise their present quarrel an presence of their hereditary foe, for Fiance tho advantage would prove so inestimable that not a voire, much has a hand, should bo raised against her. It is all very well for Austria to take the opportunity of currying favor with England and exhibiting her little spite to America, but Fram e can never so act." The words were spoken loudly, and seemed to meet with the general concurionco of ail present. I am not at liberly to give the name of the speaker; but It was one of the wa*masi partisans of the government, and a mutual frieud of Trince Napoleon uud the Count de l'ersignv. Oh, if the South would but soe its error and join tho President in maintaining the diirnilv and honor of a common country, what an opportunity t? tlio present? Never again in its future history c.iu such an occasion bo hope J for of raising America?the once more United States?to the proudest position ever enjoyed by any notion -mco the creation of the world.

The impartial observer moat form a digbresit epiaiou of him. A farsifhte* obaenrer eaanot hut ooosHer a ?ruaade , JEW YORK HERALD, SUJ against Southern society u a disaster even for tbs Northern Stelae. Not only la the South an excellent market for Northern mnnufncturea: not only doea It supply tho North with cotton, which tne latter needs aa much as any other civilised country ; uot only would the conquest and permanent occupation of the Immense and sparsely inhabited territories of the South be a military impossibility, but the riolent and radical destruction of Southern sx-iaty. slavery aud all, would throw back the progress of Amertca for a century, and obscure her future prospects for an indefinite period. But cautiously as the government at Washington has hitherto refrained from malting the emancipation of the negro the battle cry of the present struggle, if the war should continue thsy would gradually be forced by the pressure of circumstances to resort to this last extremity- In the eyes of Mr. Reward and those who share his opinions, this would be equivalent to a suicide of the Cnion, We should never forget that it was not abolitionism that caused the defeat of the democratic or Southern party at the lust Presidential election, but the determination of the North to shake off forever the yoke of that imperious faction. We shuuld recollect, more iver, that the war has only broken out because the South refused to submit, even transiently, to the rale of a Northern uartv To adjust the difficulty between North and South there are oaly three courses open?either to allow the Sooth to ."separate peaceably, or to reslgu to her the undisputed supremacy over the Union, or, dually, to concede to her alt the rights the expected to acquire by it. The secoud ox|>edieiit Seward cannot possibly have in view. Whether he aima at a recognition of the Southern confederacy, or at a compromise, which would enable the South to re-enter the Uuion, we do not pretend to divine. Paring the present state of otfcrvcsccnce at the North, however, it would be useless to recommend either of tbe?e courses. To merge the animosity against the South in the still more violent hatred of England is a fearfully haroic remedy that reminds ono of the traditions of antiquity. It would be excusable if it were the only means left in a democratk: community to divert the waves of popular passion from a rock on which they are about to wreck the country. Lei us cast a rapid glance at the second actor. It would be a master stroke if Napoleon III., by pretending to favur the South, should have seduced England into anticipating him, as she did in Italy. In that event he would not offer to mediate be: ween England and America, but between the government at Washington and the Southern confederacy. - If his and Seward's efforts should succeed in sheeting a compromise,Frafice would have saved the Union a second time, the renown of 1-afayotte would be eclipsed, and a clcse alliance formed between the Tuilerios and the While House, and England exposed to a crushing humiliation. But So ward and Napolebn are pittad against another master in political intrigue. It remains to be seen what cards he will play out. Lord Palngerston will seek and perhaps find his allies in th" frenzied ambition of tho Southern statesmen. He may succeed in obstructing a compromise between the North and South, and thus prevent the restoration of the Union. Then England will apparently have an easy task, if she commences a war with the North. But thon w>< may sac the naval power of France coming to tho assistance of ilie Stars and Stripes against the British fleet, and then the struggle will assumo proportions which set all further ca'culations at defiance. This last passage deserves particular notice, as ft coincides with the change recontly observed in the tone assumed by tho French pro3S Id discussing the Anglo-American question. Your Paris correspondent has probably already mentioned an article in the Opinion Rationale, saying that it would be absolute tuadners for France to allow tho American navy, her natural ally, to be destroyed by tho British, her natural ewtuy. It'cau hardly be supposed that so evident a truth can have escaped tho observation of a Louis Napoleon. A ? S. D. View of Secretary Chase's Report?How the English Look at Our National Debt. [From the London Times, Dec. 20.] American llnaDce is atsumiDg a character so truly unparalleled and marvollous that we must besiieak the careful attention of our readers to the details just received. We should premise, too, as adding to the wonders of the case, that everything appears to be done on principle. The American* are n 4 spending and borrowing in any ignorant or heedl is* spirit, but with a perfect knowI dje, acc irding to thai r own statements, of what they are about. The Presidi nt himself, in his message to < oilgrass, after remarking on the "signal success" which had attended the'opera1) msof the Treasury," proceeded to comment on the subject as follows:?"Much of tho national loan has been taken by citizens of the industrial classes, whose confidence in th ir country's faith and zeal for tholr country's deliverance from Its present nasi 1 hauA inHnpftil tlifkYTk t/1 cftlitl ihiild tfl fh(> BlUKVlrt. fif the government the whole of tbeir limited acquisitions. This fact imposes peculiar obligations to economy in dsb-irseineDt and energy in action." llow far llnae ^obligations" havo boon fulfilled in the charges or results of the pad campaign wo shall not lare inquire, bo*advance at ore.' to the ' principles" which the Secretary of ihc Truasury lays down us those which ought to distinguish American fliiancofrom budgets on the European model. "Tho idea of perpetual dobt," ha) s ho,"is not of American nativity, and should not be naturalized."* This is verv so md doctrine, and its ap plication, wo should havo thought, would have conssted in incurring as little debt us possible, and preventing the accumulation of a burtheu winch is found by experience so hard to bo shagon off. We should havo oxpoctcd Mr. Chase to go to w irk, tike Mr. Gladstone, with n resolution to make the year's reronue support as far as isassib'.e tho yra-'s "Xiicnditures, without Uie supplement <V a loos. Very diilv. out, howev-r. are the cone u-ims of the Amc[iean financier. II re is his whob system oxprossed in a single sen'.ei'.eo:? Taxation t > produce enough for orriina y expend it tes, tor prompt poym-nt or interest on the pub ic deb:, existing and sullro. :t aud a surplus fund s the lent to exting ishthepri c:.? vithin thirty years." In other word-, ev?ry pein.y of l a enormous exp/ndi tu.o mailed l>y the civil war is to b paid with borrowed money,nothing being provided bv laxwr oxcept the interest accruing on the debt and a sinking fund for its eventual extinct.on. The actnai operations of tho Treasury have certainly been in pretty complete ace udance with this programme. The estimated expenditure for the year ending in July, 1S02, is aliotit ?109,000,(>00 sterling. Of this a?m Mr. Chase has got, or especta to get, ?2fl,0o0.o00, nnd no m >re, by taxation; ?40,000,000 he has aires !y raised by borrowing money: and ?43,000,000 he has not yet raised at all. but hopes to raise by borrowing more. Tho federal government, therefore, having ?109,<)U0.000 to provide lor tue wants of the curreut yenr. have deliberately resolved on p. oviding less than one-fourth by lavs and more than three fourths by loans, a.though the No; them Siaies contain 'JO,00<),00*1 of people, singularly rich,as Mr. t 'haso declares, and hitlinrto all but untaxed, as their admirers in ibis country u- e liieemantly asserting.

Tlae Trent Case?Secretary Tomeey's FoTTcjr Carried Out by Secretary Seward. (From the Lundon Shipping Gazette, Dee. 23.1

Whatever may be the silect upon the Cabinet of Washington of the demands which Lord Lyons has been instructed to make, there is little in the language of the federftl journals just received to leed to the hope that the American government will receive the neeiful support in making the required reparation for the violation of our neutral rights, and the recont Insult to our flag. On the contrary, it seemi to have been the prevailing opinion, betu.-e the mail left New York, on the 12th December?by which time it had been ascertained that the news of the boarding of the Trent had reached this country?that the offet of that intelligence here wus more favorab.e than could have been expected, and that in the cominunicaiiona which had jiassed between our government and the American Minister, the seizure of the commissioners had boen "fairly and distinctly settled" in lavor ot the federal government. It will somewhat surprise the law ofllcers of the Crowu to llnd, that they get credit in Am 'rica for the delivery of an opinion the very reverse of that which it is well known they have arrived at, and ou which the demauds of her Majesty's government are actually baaed. Before this, no doubt, the Now York public, a ud the poople of the Northern States generally, have been undeceived, and their government had to deal with the question of the violatiun of the neutral rights of this country, iu the brief but difficult form of an ultimatum preferred by tho British government. Iudecd, the more the cose of the boarding of the Trent and the seizure of the Southern commissioners is examined by the light of the row precedents which ap[iear to bear upon it, tho more clourj iy doea the position taken by tip our government seem to he founded on right and" justice, and in acdbrdance with the recognized maxims of international law, as adopted more especially In'the practice of the American government. It must not be forgotten, however, that so far we have no official Intimation of tliu views and determination of thu federal government on this most Important question. The House of Representatives has, it is true, spoken; but the President and his colleagues have, from whatever cause, withheld their opinion. If, however, thoy are guided by the recorded opinions of former American governments, they will find little difficulty in pronouncing very definitively on the qnestiou of the violation of neutral rights involved in the boarding and searching of vessels under the neutral flag, and especially of vessels employed in tho muil service of a neutral State. Tho publio writers in America who have been diligently hunting up the rasns of the Orozembo and the Mercury, cases arising out OI I lie warm lotz, uugui umg iuumu u uiuw nearor to our time?so near that it mi st be In the recollectiou of every member of Mr. l.incoln'8 administration w ho preteods to any political knowledge. In March, 1855, Ih ' American mail steamer El Dorado was flred into, stopped and searched somewhere on the coast of Cuba by the Spanish war steamer Korrulono. litis outrage?for a gross outrage it was?created surprise ami indignation not < uly at Washington, but throughout the United States. Mr. Ma'rcy gave expression to tltc opinion of tiie government, of which ho was a member, in tho following reraukabie words:?''The act of the commander of tho Kerrolono, as represented to this government, if done by the order of Spain, or sanctioned by her, must be regarded as the assertion to oxercise a police over our commerce upou the ocean, which will be resisted at every hazard by the government of the United States." Acting upon this view of the case, a iloet was despatched by the American government to the Gulf or Mexico, and instructions wore issued to tbu commanding oldcers, directing them that if any such outrage as that committed tu the Eorroiono wore again perpetrated | "on a vessel rightfully bearing tho American flag, th y should promptly interfere, reliove the arrested American ship, prevent tho exerriso of tho asmmc 1 right of v si'ation or search, and repel the interference by force." These instructions were suiTcicut. Hie offonce was not repeated, and reparation was demanded, and wo believe exacted, from the S. anish government. This case of the El Dorado was not only important In Itself, as exhibiting the jealousy of tho federal government in respect of the inviolability of the neutral llag, hut formed the immediato precedent on which Mr. Bucha: naii s government acted In the subsequent atTair at Sage* la Grande iu 1*58, fresh in tho recollection of our readers, and which lot to the settlement of the question of visitation and search as bctwe >n this country and the Uuited States. That affair was debated at great length in Congress, and tho opiuion of that deliberative assembly on tho question involved was thus solemnly recorded on the 16 h of Juue, 1858:?"That American veasols on tho high seas in lime of peace, bearing the American Hag, remain under the jurisdiction of the country to which they beh ng, and therefore any visitation, molestation or detention of such vesse'e by force, or by the exhibition of force, on tho |>art of a foreign Power, is a derogation of the sovereignty of Ih; United Plates." This resolution was not B..llored to remain a dead letter. Instructions followed close upon It, addressed to the officers la command of the American force on the Cuban waters, and directing them In Imperative terms "to prutcct all voosals of tho I'ni'.oJ Ptates from tho oxereiso of the right of search on the high seas, in time of peace, by the armed vessels of any other Power. These instructions [observed Mr. Tooccy, Secretary to the Navy, in his otUclul report for 1SS8| have bca often ropt-alotl, tyud are now rcg.irdod us standing instructions to the navy of the United States wherever employed. Thoy put the deck of an Ameiican v.-ml on tho' same footing as A me rican wql, tho iuvasion of which, uuder foreign onihnritv ie to h? as strenuously resisted In one case as iu the other. They regard such invasion as in tho highest degree offensive to the United States, incompatible with their sovereignty and with the freedom of the seas, and to be met and resisted by the whole power of tho country."' Those ?r? the sentiments Of the Cabinet of Washington delivered just throe yeaia ago. It is impossible to concolvc any language more precise an>l intelligible, while it is in strict conformity with the pritK'Wtt Wf1 down bF Congress, founded ti|on a precedent, th-<t of the H fiorado, which app-onches more nearly to that of the Tront than any case which has yet been c tod. It is true those recorded opinions relate to the exercise of the right of search in time of j>eac;. Bet when tho Trent was boardad and searched, and four paaaeiigera forcibly withdrawn from her. the feieral government wore at peace with England, and they do not admit they were at war with the Confederates. It would almost re-m as if this case of the Et Dorado, wbicii mutt be known to Mr. ??ward aud other members of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet, has been kept out of view, boca' ho it so exactly meets the cane of the Trent as to be poet lively unanswerable. We have been at the |?ins to bring ont tho '.acta because we feci that no opportunity should bo lost Iu showing what hus b.en Iho conduct of the Am*, rir.-iti government uud of C i agrees whcnct er the neutral rights of the United State* li ne been believed to be invadod or comproniiacd. For the maintenance of those rights successive American administrations liove been ready to go to war, and thry never had a rase iu which 1 the \ i la'lonnf th'se rights was so premeditated and so flagrant as that which form? the sabj.-i t now of a d lnand i for re drers on tho (art of Ui-> British government. If, therefore, the rtnler.il government are disposed t > adept | tho net of lite command r 0T the San .lacinto, they will do ! so in open disregard of that policy w hlch every American government rlnce the days of MadU'on, and the deliberative l>ody of tho stat s, have been the vociferous and unflinching advocates. Tlie Monroe Doctrine?Ita Itclation to Cniiutlu In an Kntillkli Point of View. [F.otn the 1 ?ily News, Fee. 28.] Few things have more puxxlcd those who, with only an , average acquaintance with American artabs, wish to I think well of the people of the United Suites, than their way of talking .about acquiring Canada. It is quite true ' ih it it is en established lmhit in America for politirnl ! ascirants to promise Canada to tho citlx-ns, and lor ths I Clli?.-ns to assume tliat the acquisition of Canada is ' on'y a question of timer. II ts quite true that since tho existing American revolution Psik form the American | Lec.oury of Htate has rapcniod his firmer assumption I i'jow hw nniy nno expojrency 01 annexing r.inada; nud i that public men who should be wise.- und kt.otu scr.ipu lniiK than Mr. Seward hi* over aliown himself to lie. have ' fallen into his way of talking on this matter. When a I leaner of the abolitionist* Iwo Mr. Won.loll J hlllips in dulg.-? In profligate talk of that kind, Knglishmen may wolkaak what it can mean, autl whether the American* imagine the Canadians re idy to make a part of the republic, nr whether they pro|?eic to aeize the country iltet, and propitiate the inhabitant* afterwards. U i salifiable un the in Ik of American orntni* ia, It Is intelligible toth.ee whnkuew t'anada a .p artor of a century ago, and who have known the Unit d Stales aiuce.

Thus wo ho ir something alx.nt annexing Canada every few weeks or nioutlis, though It sounds as strangely ton* a* it would to .nir Danish neighbor* to III 4 our mcmbors of Parliament, or l.ord Ku?seil,or our tunlmal lecturer* refer, ing to nn approaching time when Denmark would hive become Kng ish. llow could such a practice obtain a footing in Atnei l> a? Certainly not tbrotu-h the vanity of the republic, only or < hlelly. tlrr.it allowance Is to hu made for that complacency of which we hear ao much, and for the other nnpoct of the same complacency?the sincere pity which llie America; 8 fe-l for everybody who dott* not livo under their government. Tliry live far away rrom the old countries ol' the civilized world; they sot nothing in their own henusphero l<> compare with their own prosperity; they arc not,as a people, conacious of Uia defects of their own polity, nor aware of any politic*! advantages, or social superiority of any kind among nations whom they oppose thcinaelvtta to have ouUitr Ippsd aa fat ill uil way* aa In tha acquisition of wealth. They arc, In short, a young und su'Ce**rul nation: and they hive naturally taken lor gratilod ilwtt an oil fashioned colony, bit her to alow in IU growth, would be delighted to become a glorious group of Mates In their glorious Union, ltut this general notion snl unlvcraal eomplacetry would not have amic -d without bum definite fart* to auoport them. Meantime, the sccemlanry of the .Southern faction ha I IntrodccM a new pulley of miuexutlua for tbo support of slavery, I'oo wm stolen. Mo \ leo was humbled, fentrnl Awrira wax being got reedy, and Cuba attacked, with this object; and too Northern man, obi" daily antislavery men, made arratigeinouts for adding a frne HI il? to the Union tor every (lave Slato aided by the Smth. They would' cut up Ibclr new Northwest territory Into live Mates; and then thore was Canada, where lens of thousands of fagitlv e negroes wore living already-Canada must bo had for the best anti-slavery and really rcpuoiloeii reason* If the Monrue doelrine waa lo hold good for the South, It must Imld food for the North too. Hence men who Mould hat a been wiser and more scrupulous have talksd too often and too long about poaaeasing a country which doit not belong to theiu. All lhiarhowevar, would havo been mere moonahlns then, a* the talk shout Canada Is now, If Canada had bean I ban what it is now. Ws must remember how Istely It la that a thorough good understanding existed betwean the great liberal party la the ootytty and the mother I f aountry. Long after thara woo a great liberal parly there, and long after It had apparently obtained good government, It believed that it was out of favor at home, and that it waa cheated In practice of the beneflta which had been grated in theory. There waa perhapa no aeaeun of deeper despair in Canada than that in which the people of both racee found themaelvaa little the better lor the reformed methods of government, and regarded as disloyal, while the confidence of the home government was given to the minority who had kept their liberties out of their hands to the last minute. While such were the terms on which the colony and the mother country were living, it waa natural that the Americans should speculste on the disgust and disappointment of the great majority of the people of Canada. Their mistake has been iu not obaerving the effects of constitutions) government from the time of its having fair play, and of thecltisens being satisfied that their political lot was In their own hands. The commercial classes in Canada had other grievances when they felt the first effects of five trade, before ttie Navigation laws were repealed. In the Knglieli market they were beaten by tho Americans, weighted as they were with heavy freights, and in the American markets they were met by protective duties; so that they suffered at both ends of their line of traffic, while their neighbors were protltting by the new free trade from which they were excludod. This was a strung bribe to them to place themselves under the same sysiem which was apparently enriching the Americans. At the same time immigrants were pouring into the United States in preference to Canada, stiui dating jealousy on tho one hand and erouiath n on the other. At such ajuncture there were no doubt many Canadians disposed to listen to invitations to enter the republic, and things woro then said which are quoted now by Americans, and received by hearers who have not kept up with the march of events, and have never been told how the Canadians enjoy tliair virtual independence and self-government. The Reciprocity Treaty, however, turnod the fortunes of Canadian trade iong ago; and the te|>eal of tho Navigation laws fairly opened the European market to the colonists. They and tho mother country are on a good ( understanding. Their self governor nt lias bocn improving, while that of tho United States has been deteriorating through the evil influences of slavery: and only discontented sud ballled partisan leaders now revert to the old proposal of trying republican institutions, at the cost of merging the existence of Canada in that of a republic now suffering under u more formidable-adversity than Canada ever knew. No honest statesman, who is careful to understand what he speaks of, ran henceforth protend to bell'-vo that Canada Is disloyal to England, or envious of tho United States. Tho loss or primary liberties on the American side lias been even greater than tho gain of free government on the Canadian. Auv implication w-ith slavery, such as has always existed in the United Stales, and lias been much aggravated within twenty years, is thoroughly odious to the Canadians. It mi.st be long before tho p'r. gressive prosperity tf Iho republic tau bo restored, while present events Indicate a turn <M the tide of immigration into Canada. It is also far I rum agreeable to tho colonists to bo spikoii of as a prey which the republic can appropriate at pleasure, and they resent the assumption that (hoy mnst l?e willing to merge their political existence, as soon as invited, in a system aa yet vitiated by an evil which sjioils its working, and-which must break up the consitutiou, as well as the Union, before it can begot rid oi'. The Ki g'lsh race in Canada are as pleased as tho Americans tor work out their own political course. Wiieu American statesmen and American citizens perceive this, as they soon will, there will then be an end of the insults to Ki'gand, to Canada, aud to the good sense and upright principle of the American people which aspirants to the Presidentship and unscrupulous party orators still Venture to utter, for th > purpose ol gaining over the vanity of the young nation to their interest. Meantime, evcu such a slight review of tho wrongs and relie s of Canada within tho memory of our own generation may pervo to account for the straugo audacity and wioi gdoadedness with which a politician aud an agitator hero and there still undertakes to answer lor the will and the destinies < f the free and loyal people of Canada.

The charges against him are voluminous, and if the half are proved it ia probable be will have to give up hie command. The Colonel Is an old officer of Mexicaa war notoriety, is undoubtedly brave, aud aa true aa steel; but his groat fault, I suspect, is want of diaoi' pline. The principal charge against him ia for allowing bis regiptent to try and hang a murderer, while located at Mound City last summer, contrary to express orders from General McClernaad, the circumstances or which I wrote you at the time. A flag of truce went down tho river on Sunday as rar aa Lucas'Bend, Ave miles above Columbus, with eighteen of the Camp Jackson (St. Louis) prisoners. At Lucas' Bend we found Ilia rebel gunboat Grampus, who fired * hhot at ua, which had tba effect of rounding us to, when her officers cauie on board to know eur business. Our expedition was under the charge of Colonel Webster, who very coolly informed the epauletted gentry of the Grampus that his business was with General Polk, and that he should do It only with him or bis representative; so Mr. Grampus steamed away down to the rebel camp, whore elie remained for four mortal hours, leaving us to while eway the time as host we could. When the t ruin:.us returnod, I asked thu captain what had detained them so long, and received for an an.-wer?"You see tlio Bishop (General I mean) was preaching when I gut down there, and after service he had a communion ami dress parade, and I could not got back any sooner." Colonels Smith and Rigdon came up on tho rebel boat, and received tbe prisoners. Last night four gentlemen from the South r.amo Into camp at Bird's l'oiirt, ami were immediately sent over to headquarters. Two of them were British subjects und wero supplied with" passports from the British Consul a* New Orleans. Tho other two were Northern men who had bcon living South. General Grant examined them a while and showed thqra to go about their business; but about midnight they were all arrested as spies and kept under guard until morning, but after a further examination wero discharged. They requested not to bo caieChiscd in regard to tho rebel i'orco and fortifications down the river, as th<*y averred they had given their several affirmations to General Polk not to divulge anything they hod seen or know. But this 1 learn from a conversation with thom:?Commodore Ilollius' famous Manassas h s g"ne back to Now Orleans: an iron-plated floating battery mouutiug thirteen guns Is aucliored in the river, opposite Columbus, where there are also three formidable gunboats;.sixteen "torpedoes," or submarine batteries, have been sunk in tbe river ready to blow any federal fleet out of water; over one hundred heavy guns era mounted at] Columbus, and there are from thirty to sixty tho- sand troops there. This is confirmed by a rebel prisoner brought In to-day from near Belmout, and coinrldes with former reports. The last of the steam tenders to our gunboats arrived to-day from St. Louis,and the general impression is that they don't amount to any certain sum in whole numbers. They certainly loo* to be a stupendous waste of money; but time will tell. General Paine is ordered from Paducah to take command at Bird's Point. This looks like business again. OUR ST.

A rumor was current in this city yosterday morning that General Schofield had captured a thousand rebels near the line of the North Missouri Railroad, and would shortly send his prize to St. Louis. Tbe story grew oat of the fact that General Schofleld went several days since to thu vicinity of tho late railway destruction, in pursuit of a rebel force a thousand strong. Last evening information reached headquarters that he had succeeded In capturing, near Martinsburg, fifty or more who ?d> engiged in the recent outrages, and among then were two notorious ringleaders?Colonel Jones and Colonel JeT Owens. Full particulars of the cap. ture have not ?ct reached the city; but it ts known that it was accomplished without loss on our side, the rebels having boon surprised and induoad to make e prompt surrender. Ttiey are to be sent here to undergo an examination, with rerorence to their eonnoctiou with the railroad destruction. Much anxiety ie shown, both among Union men and rebels, to know what wlU Ik* the fate of those convicted of the abovementioned crltno. Some time ago three moa, concerned la burning thf Big river bridge on the Iron Mountain Railroad, were arrested, tried and found guilt/. The ringleader of the party wna put under sentence of death, but before the time appointed for oxeeution ho died Of black measles, and thus thwarted the ends of Justice. Hie two compauions, though fouud to be gufity, were permitted, through somo lojal prestidigitation, to go "at Targf after taking the oath of allegiance. The adinlnis. teriug of the oath to traitors Is looked upon by tho intelligent loyalists as a groat farce, and especially ho when bridge-burners are allowed to parti, cipate in its benefits. We havo been waiting patiently for a few summary oxaraplos to bo made, and when tbeee arc given outrages will he checked. If tho fifty outlawe now In the bands of General SchoQcld are convicted, and inoel the fate promised them by General HaUuck, a new era will dawn upon us. It is quite certain that measures bare been taken by this dcimrtmout t? rid Missouri of tho proscnco of the rebels in any considerable bodies.
