The tele graph is clearly tin invasion of the rights of the Post office, and takes so much from the public revenue. Now that such extraordinary facili ties are brought to bear oa the transmission of mail matter it becomes the duty of the govern ment to asaert those rights and to give the ?? oountry all the benefit of them. It is unneces sary for us to enlarge on the advantages that would accrue trom a comprehensive and well organised system of telegraphs and pneumatic lines controlled by a public department and directed by a single head. Suffice it to say that it would give our vast territory a facility I of intercommunication that would contribute immensely to the development of its resources, and it would moreover enable our widely scat tered population to keep pace in all other re speots with the intellectual and scientific pro gress or the ago. A MenU BartkqaaJte la CaueetlMl. As Stabad the Sailor groaned under the burden of " the old man of the sea," so General Hawley, of Connecticut, we learn, is groaning under the burden of the showman Barnum. As Mayor Hoffman last fall;" in run ning for Governor of New York, broke down under the dead weights ot James Brooks, Fer nando Wood and John Morrissey, so it is feared General Hawley will break down with the dead weight of Barnum. Aa Brooks, Wood and Morrissey jumped into Congress from the shoulders of Hoffman, so may Barnum jump in from the broad shoulders of General Hawley. But as the moral reaction throughout this State against the nominations of Brooks, Wood and Morrissey laid out Hoffman by nearly fifteen thousand majority against him, so it is predicted that the moral reaction In Con necticut against Barnum, as "a nomination not At to be made," will be the political death of General Hawley. Barnum may slip through by the skin of his teeth, but his thirty years in all his various tricks oi obtaining money on false pretences, we are informed, is regarded as a bitter dose for the sober, honest, hard working, moral portion of the good people of Connecticut. We hear, Indeed, that there is, especially -among the parsons, a low rumbling going on all over the State, which will 'be very apt to culminate in a moral earthquake against Bar num the showman on eleotion day, in the de teat of Hawley by two or three thousand majority, because he is ridjng the same horse? ' the woolly horse?with Barnum. And what says Touchstone? "When two ride a horse, , one must ride behind." From a newspaper \ point of view we rather like the idea of this Barnum going to Congress. We shall be able to make him a good subject for the amusement of our readers on such an occasion, for in stance, as a passage at arms between him and Brooks, Wood, Morrissey or Ben Butler, or the (?doubtable Ashley. "Old Thad Stevens" would hardly touch the showman, except to ?ttr him up with a long pole; but that would be a good thing for the newspapers. Bnt the ?oral character of Connecticut, it appears, is beginning to be understood as involved in the contest ov?r Barnum the showman, and Haw ky. It is feared, will be made the scape-goat lor Banna's sins and transgressions against the moral law in all his impostures, and for the greater sin of boastfiilly parading all his ex ploits to the world in a book, yea, two books, to the disgraoe of Connecticut. The democrats AM la high feather over Hawley's dead weight of the Feejee mermaid, and they seem to be ?are of gaining the State with Barnum the iron nan against Barnum of the woolly horse. As wo are living in an age of revolution, why ahftn^ not such a revolution as this come upon Oeaneotiout f fhl But ?r Oamma the Klnsdoai ei Cua4a. The late Colonial Secretary of the Derby government delivered a most important speech In the House of Lords on the 19th nit, prerlons to Ids retirement from office, on the proposed "Canadian Confederation or kingdom which it is intended to plant upon our northern frontier. We have already laid before our readers tb* main features of the plan, the organisation of tho new government, and the name by*which it Is to be known. The animus of the project, however, is fully Illustrated in the speech of -the Earl of Carnarvon. The kingdom of Canada is to be established as an oflhet to this -republic on the North American continent. It Is prophesied for it by the last Colonial Secretary that in time it will become a nation more powerful than the mother oountry, Eag tand, and as great in territory as Russia. With regard to its permanency and compact ness, those are to be assured by ignoring the right of secossion on the part of any of the Provinces?a principle which the British gov ernment so heartily recognized In our Southern rebellious Static Its military power will be carefolly nursed until the ndw kingdom can defy, U not dictate to, its republican neighbor, while a line of fortifications already being ad ranoed Is designed to stand as a perpetual mensoe to this country along our lakes, rivers and geographical boundary lines, from the Atlantic ooast north of Muine to the Pacific at Vancouver's Island. W bile these schemes wore being dissected in the House of Lords a great many soft words flattering to the United States frll from the lips of the noble debaters. Earl Bussell and Lord Monck saw nothing in the proposed kingdom but benefit to this oountry, and Lord Normanby deplor d In advance the miseries of a war with the United States. But it does not appear that this feeling of security and the growth of many blessings from the establishment of a powerful monarchy at our gates is shared by the loyal State of Maine, which sent from Its cold and apparently inhos pitable regions thousands of patriot soldiers for the defence of this country against Southern Tebelllon ; for a protest - against this creation of a kingdom from which It is only divided by an imaginary lino is under consider ation in the Legislature of that State. This action on the part ot Maine may be regarded as only the precursor of similar measures to emanate from the other States which border on Canada?New York, New Hampshire, Ver -mont, Michigan and Ohio. these and other expressions of public sen timent on this qnestion the general govern ment may be compelled to take cognisance of the change In progress in the British Provinces. Whan by Ikiropoen interference an empire was ?onght to be established on the ruins of a republic in Mexloo we did not Interfere, bs cause oar hands were ftill with our domestic troubles ; but circumsUnees are altered now, and the governments of Europe who looked aghast at the outpouring of our peoplo in 1861, when the flag was insulted, may see a train more destructive fired if this Canadian project is persisted in. However, there are- obstacles greater, per haps, than the hostility of our people in the road to oomplotion for the Canadian kingdom. There are elements at work in the Provinces them selves which may defeat it The Prenoh Cana dians object to surrendering their traditionary inheritance to a Saxon ruler. They fear that their religion and the educational system estab lished under it will be dominated over by a majority Church?If united under one form of government?because ther have read history understanding^ and know the penchant of England for that kind of policy. At present they are Independent, in a religious point of view. A glanoe at the nationalities which comprise the population of Canada will show the probable strength of the opposition to the proposed measure of consolidation. In Canada East there are in round numbers nine hundred thousand people of French origin and one hundred thousand of Irish origin, out of a total of eleven hundred thousand. In Canada West there are seven hundred thousand persons of Irish extraction ont of a total of fourteen hun dred thousand. The Catholics alone in both divisions of Canada number four hundred and sixty thousand. It is safe to calculate that a large majority of all these classes are inlmioal to the British crown. Hero is one very potent element in the way of the schemes before the imperial Parliament. How far the scare which might be got up on the suspicion of a Fenian movement might militate against the confede racy would depond upon the real intentions of the parties who control that branch of the organization which aims at Canada as a baso of operation*. Our latest intelligence from Toronto is that orders were just received from headquarters to hold two thousand volunteers in readiness for service on the frontier, as a Fenian raid was expected. It would appear to be an acceptable timo for such a movement, now that so lurge a portion of the Canadian people are excited to hostility against Great Britain on this question of a consolidated king dom under an English ruler. Enropraa Policy mad the Knatern QrmiIm. How complete is the change which has come over the diplomatic mind of Europe since the time of the Crimean war I Then, and for at least a generation previous, intervention in the affairs of other notions was the dominant characteristic of European statesmanship. Now non-intervention is the universal rule. Amply as this chango was illustrated during t'ae late German was, the illustration yrtm less visible and emphatic than that which it is receiving at the present moment in eonncctlon with the affairs of the East, It is impossible not to admit that, as every nation has tlic most perfect right to manage its own affairs, the change is oua for the better. Oar recent communicationnfrom-Europe, on? and all, clearly show that whatever be- the sympathies and interests of the gro.it Power*, not one of them is likely to interfere in the settlement of the question betwe n tho Sultan and bis Christian subjects. England has al ready emphatically doclarod for non-interven tion. Russia, as wo have seen from the im portant letter of our special correspondent at St. Petersburg, will be an interested and anxious onlooker; but she will be nothing more. Prussia will follow tho same courso. Austria has no choic.' but to yield to the popular current. The Emperor Na poleon may have special ends to serve? may, in his heart, be opposed to non iutorvention ; but for the present year at lea?.t his hands are tied. France will have no war while the Exposition lasts. Turkey will thus be completely left to liersoUL It is Impossible to look at tho affairs of the East from the point of view from* which they are thus presented without feeling teat we aro on the eve of witnessing another and a grander crusnde. The passions which in earlier tinres roused the Christian populations of the West and impelled them in thousands to the rosea? of the Holy Places will bo as nothing to the passions which, in this later and even nobler struggle, will animate every Christian breast throughout tho Turkish dominions. Nor will the righteousness of their cause foil to socuro for them the sympathy and encouragement of Christians everywhere. Volunteers will ponr in upon them from every nation in Europe. The conflict once Jairly begun, it is impossible to say where or how it will en1. It will bo a struggle to the death between thA Crosccnt and ths Cross?a struggle between barbarism on tho one hand and civilisation on the other, and in which the scienoe of a rude age will have to compete with the powcrfal appliances of modern times. If the great Powers but stand aloof and prove faitblul to the principle of non-intervention, the Crescent must give way, and tho followers of Mohammed must abandon a soil which they ought never to have touched. If the great Powers do interfere, they may check the progress of the movement for a little; but no Interference will ever reooncile the Christians of the East to Mohammodan rule. Modern ideas must triumph, and the religion of Mohammed must stand aside or perish. THE FLIM III THE SOUTH. lUaioff, Va, March 1,1SST.

Bot although he thus pictured the st*U> of the country, he wont on to say that, ' anxious to ahow, nt tho earliest moment, that the government wlah to put trust in the people, and to allow those who instigated the movement the liopefcwsMM of thoir further dtiaigus, he requested <Jj? act to he suspended but for lliroe mouths."

As Mio Chester panic snd tbe Kerry "rising'' are at an e-iti, and the public confidence is again happily restored, permit me to gtvo you some account of tho ruture Fenian programme. This I should have dono last week, but fearing that the then state of tHe public mind would prcvonl yo? from giving credence no tbo statement, 1 dolayed it, Knowing well that a few days would re-aaeuro the public that Fenisanlsm is not, at present, very danger ous.

The supposition that he is now In Kerry is entirely groundless. He is id Paris, and has already sent for his wire to Join him tbevo, where be intends to apply himself' to literary pursuits (for tbe future, being somewhat in the condition of Othetto, so far as Fenlauism is coneorned When bis defection was dis covered by Colonel Kelly and others, weonvention of the Brotherhood wss-o&llcd In Now York, when he was formally deposed, and General Olneoon put hi his place, Sro tern., until the vlew? of John Mitofael could be ad. That gentleman was at once commuaicated with on the subject, and his advioe was to the effect that the organisation should be kept up in Amoiin, but that nothing should bo farther done In Ireland, owing to the danger to organisers and tbo people from' tbo extreme watciduhiees of the authorities. Mltehel signed that it would b> madness to keep up tho orgsnisatioa in Ire land, or attempt an Insurrection nntil Kogiaad was at war with some of the groat' Powers, which' event, he thinks, cannot be long delayed! He advises Mo consoli dation of the two branches in America, the accumulation of arms and stores st oonvooient points for transporta tion, and that orders should bsssnt to Ireland* t?suspend operations until a more favorable time. Thssn views were presented at an adJoorBSdimeeting of tlw oowron tion above alluded to, and unanimously adopted. Mltehel also consented to bo the future chief of tho Fe nians on both sldss of tho Atlantlo.
