The Voice of Maine the Klagdna mf tiMda. The /oint Commute? on Federal Relations in the Senate of the State of Maine has made a report, whkb we publish in another column, relative to the proposed creation of ^ king dom in Canada. Maine, u one of the States of the Union bordering on the British Pro vinceg, naturally objects to this scheme of erect ing a monarchy in her immediate neighbor hood. The opposition it based upon the de sire of the people of Maine to preserve friendly relations with the people of British North America, which appears to be placed in some peril by the proposed confederacy. The ?o'ject of these resolutions is to invoke the intervention of the United States government ?'in earnest remonstrance with Great Britain against establishing any system of government in North America, the infiuenoe of which Would endanger the friendly relations of the people -of the British Provinces with the people of the United States." This action of the Legislature of Maine will probably be followed by similar resolutions in the other States bordering on Canada who may feel equally aggrieved by the erection of a monarchy, with ail its demoralizing and dan gerous tendencies, in their immediate neigh borhood. A parallel is drawn in the report of the Maine Legislature between tbe Mexichn empire and the Canadian kingdom, in the light of a violation of the Monroe doctrine, assuming that in each case the change of gov ernment is forced upon the people of both countries, and may eventuate In Canada, as in Mexico, in popular discontent It appears that in view of the proposed regime in the British Provinces extensive fortifications ar<.' being constructed on the Canadian frontier, and how far this preparation for future con tingencies may be regarded as important can not be foretold just now. It is evident, how ever, that tbe States touching upon the borders of Canada anticipate an evil influence from this new kingdom, or dominion, or monarchy, whichever we may ehoose to call it. A KUhy Busiuees?Smuggling on the Kortli? eailm Frontier. It is authoritatively stated that a number of fishing smacks have been seized at Belfast, Maine, for having on board a large amount of merchandise of various kinds which was en tered at tbe Custom House as 'flsk The goods went brought from the British -Provinces in these fishing smacks and consigned to mer chants in respectable standing in Belfast. This is but one among perhaps a multitude of case* where a similar system of smuggling is prac ?tised with a view of defrauding the govern ment There is evidence that the business has been going on for a long time, and that it has not been checked before may be chargeable to a lack of proper vigilance on the part of Custom House officers on tbe border. It is also pretty well known that a formidable organization has been established in England, among British merchants, for the purpose of smuggling into this country articles upon which there is a high duty.' Tbe art of smug gling reached perfection in Groat Britain during the Southern rebellion, when the British blockade runners made so many successful ventures in the teeth of what were considered almost insurmountable obstacle?. In these piping times of peace, therefore, and with such limited means for protecting against smug gling the extensive line of our northeastern border, it is scarcely a matter of su - prise that the government is so frequently cheated of its revenue. But more energetic measures should be adopted by tbe govern ment to prevent these frauds and more signal examples made of those who are found guilty ? of thus transgressing the revenue laws ; other wise* our frontiers will swarm with bands of daring smugglers, backed up by " highly re spectable persons," as the Wilmington block ade runners were, and the Treasury thereby ?deprived of a material source of Its just revenues. Protection and fair dealing toward honest merchants, who regnlarly pay their dues st the Custom Houses, likewise demand ot the government the most vigorous and effective measures to suppress this growing evil of smuggling on our northeastern frontier. It would be well for the Commissioner of Cus toms at Washington to feriet out this whul ? matter of fishing smack smuggling in the waters of Maine, and be might extend his in vestigations to the waters of Massachusetts no ?doubt, with beuefit to the nutional Treasury. MUSICAL. Oratorio* In the .Metropolis. TIm* projection ol oratorio* on a largo scale at Stein *ay Hall marks % u<w era . In vocal music in this city. For manr years paat oratorios were like anfpl*' vUltt among u?, tew and lar between. At tbe approach of each Christmas the Itnnn >mr Society wok* up from IU> twulve month lethargy and went into training for the .nevitable Menslah. We bare several vocal societies, an?l among then materials tor bringing out oratorio* in a ?>tyl* equal to any of tbe kuropean musical centre*. The apathy of tiieee societies heretofore IB regard to this the highest form of music Is unaccou tit able, and discredit able alxo. In many of tbe other cities of America there ere regular oratorio seasons, and la Boston espe Islty tbe Hnndel and Hay da socleiy will compare favorably with some ot the beat known European organizations of tbe same kind. In New Tork the Liederkranz, Arlon, Men delssohn Union, Cecilian Choir and Harmonic Societies could furnish a chorus larja enough to compote with the footed Exeter Hall oratorio performances; and we hive excellent artists for the solo parts. If these socio;ios would unite in giving regular season* of oratorio Now Tork would tben rank among the first musical citl a In tbe world. Concert and opera must be regarded as secondary planets In the musical firmament; for oratorio ?s tbe highest expression of the soul in music.

Listen to the beavanly sound." ol the Oreatlon, or any other sublime oratorio, and acknowledge that It is in moments like the** that the heart expands la Its sympathies, stretches oat a hand to tbe weak and whispers encouragement to tbe depressed; that men grow gentler and better, de terroin * opon goodness and build op hopeful resolves. ?v*ry sentiment it breathes Is true worship, not ^ mockery of art. The object of Mr. Harrison in produc ing oratorios Is to bave them performed on a scale com mensnrate with their sublime sntyscta and Ideals, and any of the numerous audience that listened to the late performance* of tbe Messiah and Samson at Stelnwav Hall will recognise tbe realisation of such an obj'x*.

Almost all the guns, except those not utterly disabled by the filed cartridge or other tests, have been subjected, within the past few days, to the influence of moisture on the mechanism of the breech piece, each arm having been profusely drenched in water and allowed to remain exposed to the open air. in ordor finally to ascertain the effect of nst on the ready availability of each functional part. All the tests in the list, which were unprecedentediy severe and thorough, have now been applied to almost every gun entered by the inventors. These were suggested by General W. G. Ward, and wore accepted by the Board as peculiarly adapted to the purpoee of ascertaining the strongest aod most efficient arm. Colonel G. M. Baker was also pre sent yesterday at tha examinations.

In foct, so anxious were all present to pay their tribute at the shrine of Terpelchoro that waltz, galop, schottische and Vjuadrille followed one arother with a rapidity which, although surprising, seemed to have no effect In tiring the parties taking part In the night's enjoyments. The whole allai' was a moat successful one, and was certainly a very brilliant Inauguration of social meetings In connection with the club. The arrangements reflected great credit upon Messrs.

The news received rrom Ireland Inst evening that tho land telograph wires were down ostensibly from the effects of a storm created much comment, speculation and some excitement In Fenian clrclea The Impression produced was that the late rising among the Kerry hills was stamped upon possibly by the government with no other effect than the alarm'ng one of spreading the flame or tevolt to other places and firing effectually the preconcerted thon gh dormant train of Insurrection. Late last evening, when the news bersme generally known that the wires In Ireland were down, all the slumbering suspicions or the Fenians were aroused?the storm is but a ruse, a hurricane from other elements than tho'-e of nature Is sweeping through the land, hearts are beating, flesh ud Mood bat tling for freedom?thought the ever sanguine follower- of the sunbimit. This feeling became gradu ally more intense when debate on the probabilities of the eve was Indulged.

The repular services f?#Aah Wednoedav wore read, after which the Kcv. Thomas Gallandet, P. P., Rector of St. Ann's, delivered a short discourse appropriate to the occasion He took bis text from the second expisile ef St. Peter (being part or the second lesson for the day), chaptor 111., verse 10-?"Hut the day or the lord will come as a thief in tbe nlplit; In the which tbe heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and tbe elements shall molt with fervent heat, the earth also, and the works that are therein shall ne burned op." He deemed It proper, he said, seeing that there were i so nianv children present, to offer a few suggestions, In simple language, touching what the apostle, in tho I calls " the day of the Lord." The Rev. Br. then called attention to tbe phrase Just mentioned, and explained the attributes pertaining to the t-econd Person of Jhe Blessed Trinity, givins a short summary or His lire, passion and death, and dwelt on the mercy of God to man, as shown by Hi? giving His own beloved Son as a mediator and Intercessor, after man had lost the Plvine friendship by Kin. It was to prepare mankind to rightly appreciate this great mystery of tho Re demption that the Church appointed this day. Ash-Wednesday, to be commemorated in a special manner. It war her design that on this day men should be brought to examine Into their hearts and see how they had oflonded God; that they should then, by hum bly eonfesntog their sins and truly repenting of tbein. commence a new life?a life of grace?and be prepared to meet their Sav lour In that great'May of the Iflfl w hich would surely come. The preacher then showed bow, by properlv appreciating tho l-enten tlmo and com plying with the Church's exhortation to repentance, all miffh* rest assured of the Divine promise that their hm would be forgiven and provision be made against the "day" so vividly described in the text, and closed by a-klng his hearers to reflect seriously on the fact that sin unreponted would assuredly be punished, but that a tnae sorrow ana contrition for having committed It would wash away its stain from the soul and re-store the sinner to his birthright in tlie heavenly kmsdom. The gcrv.ce.' were closed with the benediction. NEW YORK CHARTER ELECTIONS. Yankrra.

The stage* tor the laat three trips havo lieen delayed ity high water, but I expect to go through now in seven days time. I do not expect any trouble from the Indiana. You will, no doubt, bave seen in the papers that Fort Dodge had been captured. There Is nothing in the re port. Two oil!cent from Fort Dodge had gone to Fort Lamed and bad not returned on the day appointed. The commander at Fort Dodge was sure something bad happened to them; that they muat have heon killed; thai tbe poet was la danger and would no doubt be at tacked in a short time, and desired the stage to remain. The conductor deollued remaining, and went on to 1-ort learned without reuing an Indian. When he arrived at the fort be found tbe missing oJflcers, one drunk anil the Other trading. On this slender foundation the capture of Fort Dodge hag been atarVed. ? ? ? ? \ery respectfully your obedient servant, ^ The Commissioner has also received the following let ter from E. W. Wynkoop, Indian Agent for the Arapa hoes, Cheyennes aud Apachea:? Uitkr Abkansas Aornot, Fort Laiutbd, I Kansas, Feb. 21, 1867. J Hon. L. V. Boor, Commissioner of Iudian Affairs:? 8m?I have the honor to report having seen various newspaper aorouuts of the depredations committed by Indians; that ax Tar as regards this section of the coun trv, or includes the Indians of my agency, they are en tlrelr false. I can state positively that since the council held by Messrs. Bogy and Irwin with the Indiana of th is agency not one Kingie overt art lias been committed by those Indians up to the present time. I have l>een among them constantly, and never knew them to (eel better satisflod or exhibit such a pacific feeing. The only complaint that they now make Is that the captive Indian children are not returned to them, tn accordance with promises mudo to that effect by the government; and In connection thaiewlih I would respectfully cnll the attcnliou of tbe Commissioner to the fact that one or those children is known to bo in Colorado and can ea? ly he procured; and also that, in reply to a communication from your office w'th reference to the same mutter, I stated that the Indians still insist upon the government fulfilling Its pledge* to them by roturning the children. My experience teaches tne that a source of much dti flcultv with the Indians ar'.ses from tbo Tact of the gov ernment not being prompt In fulfilling Its promises, par ticularly heretofore delaying the delivery ol the annuity of goods to a period far beyond the tlmo that thev should l>? received I would earnestly recommend that the next Issue be allowed to bo made us early in trie spring as possible. The Indians become yerv much scattered after crass comes, aud are always better satis fied to receive their goods whan thoy are congre^atud In conclusion, I wonhl respectfully state that the In dians have lately exhibited a slight feeling of apprehen sion in consequence ot the order stopping the trading or arms and ammunition to tbum, imagiulng that the same bodes them no good. The small quantity of ammunition tradi'd to them would be or no account in case of future hostilities. They also claim the right to trade for those articles In accordance with tbe provisionsef their treaty, thev being recognized as at peace. A matter or this kind is calculated to do more harm tban good. I nave the honor to be, air. wltu much rebpect.vour obudleut servant. K. W. WYNivuui, United States Indian Agent. KANSAS WTHAX3. The following letter, received by Colonel J. H. Leav enworth, United States Indian ?gent for Kiowas and Comanchea, contains much Interesting Information concerning the different Indian bands of Kansas Towanoa, But lor ca, Kansas, Feb 18, 1??7 Colonel J. H. La A vkjovorth?1 hare Just returned from the camp ?f Ten Beara, head chief of the Co manches, on the Korth Caoadlan, where I have been all winter. He requeated ne to write to yguteliing you how tbe Indians are situated. After receiving tb<Mr presents from you laat fall the ya"-^'k*v'inRt??'

The Ho-ko nlee, of Wanderers, are on the same The Ta-na-ways, or Liver Eaters, Iron Jacket sbena,are | on the same river. Mah we or Shaking H^nd s band of Buffalo Raters, are with the Kiowas on Bed Fork. 1 Abont the 1st of January a party of lean traders came Into Iron Mountain's camp and re mained some days. They told the 'h" 'J United States government was going to make t*ariIP? them when the grass grew This statement created considerable alarm among them. Ten Bears ?aye U war breaks out he will Uke as many of the Co maucbes as will go with him andmovoup tiour the river, where be can communicate with you. He sava that that was the talk you gave him, and he has not forgotten it. Ho states that he was forced into the war of 1864, but now he means to avoid being drawn Into hostilities. He is very an^ow to obuun from von a paper to replace the one he lost last fall. and this time, he says, be "wanta it to como r'omJVashing ton himself." I think he is the most reliable chief on lhBlack "Eagle, Chief of the Kiowas, makee Jnat rich a talk as Ten Bears, and Is a strong advocate forearming out the treaty etlpuiatlona. There are three Texan prisoners amoc - tbe No-fco-nlea, two boya ? gj^? about ten or twelve yeara old. They offered to sen me one of the boya, but as I did not think y'w woold approve of the sale I refused to buy him. Horse a tto* says you told him that If they had "yprto^neTS to turn them In to any trader, and that yon would make it all right; but as I had heard you express yourselt differently I paid no attention to what be isaid. Atmo?t all tbe young men have gone to MexlcmorTexa* Ten Beara' son, with abont fifty warriors, went to Mexico about three months ago. His son told me they were going after mules, and Intended to be absent about four mouths. The boetile band of Comanchee, the Qua-ra-da che-ko, or Antelope Skinners, bave moved In near to the main Canadian. Tbe movement of ao many troop* last summer alarmed them and the rumor lhai a military post was to be oetabHahed at the Antelope Hills renders all the Indians uneasy.
