Ksq., lias sent us a Book of500 pages of which be is Editor, print ed by John Lovell of Montreal. It is entitled ‘‘The Relations of the Industry of Canada with the Mother Country and the I'nited States.*’ The typographical execution of tlie work is very neat and quite creditalile to the printing house of Mr. Lovell. It has been said by Englishmen in ) ears past, ‘‘Who ever reads an American BookBut we have never asked the question, “Who ever reads a Canadian Book We have no prej udices of that kind; and we assure our Cana dian neighbors that we read their books with pleasure sad profit. 1 rue, we of the north, in our present struggle for the life of our listing have not had the sympathy of all Queen Vic toria’s subjects in British North America, however much we might have desired or de served it. But we feel much pleasure lu re cognizing the fact that some of their journals and some of their public men have taken a just and unprejudiced view of the rebellion and fully understand its obiecl aud aim. They ■ea in it a determination to tight for elavciy and against Freedom. It is indeed strange that the people of any civilized country in this enlightened nineteenth century, should sympathize with a slavehold ing population, aud it excites our spec is I won der that the subjects of Queen Victoria, eith er In Canada or on the “fast anchored Isle.’’ should esteem human bondage so lightly as to sympathize with a rebellion whose sole object is to perpetuate such a wicked institution. But we return from this di gression to the Book before us, the con tents of which are made up from the speech es and letters of Isaac Buchanan, Esq., M. 1’., and from various other sources. Hurltanan is a name which has hut little music lu it for our ears. We have an “old public functiona ry” of that name, who has fallen so low that none can reverence him, hut we trust our prej udice* do not extend to the Canadian orator and member of Parliament, whom we judge to be a sharp, ready debater and an adroit and clever statesman. In bis speech at Toronto, in answer to the toast, “The internal improvements of the Prov ince,” he bore down heavily upon the Brown Dorian Government, and the Macdonaid-Si cotte Cabinet were unmercifully excoriated amidst roars of laughter, that plainly indicat ed the current of public feeling iu Canada West. He advocates Canadian manufactures with much power and good sense, aud repudi ates the idea of sending so much money “home" for manufactured articles, which might be produced iu the Provinces. “The low, radical statesmen of England,” he says, “interfere too much witli our respon sible government in Tariff matters, and the. ministry countenance them. The life-blood of the Province has to pay for the excess of im ports over exports.” No doubt manufactories scattered over that country would greatly low est the Canadian farmers. Canada West is a magnificent country, its soil ami climate are excellent, and the occupation of its numerous water falls would give employment to tbons ands, and greatly advance her agricultural in terests. The true policy of Canada is to pro mote the prosperity of her farmer-. The ob ject of Kugland in retaining territory ought to be to bless it and not to blight it. England cannot long expect to dry up Canadian tears by throwing dust into their eyes as the barba rians did to a poor shipwrecked mariner ou their coast. He thinks Lord Elgin bribed the Americans by sharing with them the Provincial Fi.-luery and Navigation rights to give the Canadians the Reciprocity Treaty. The farming inler est of Canada is greatly favored by this Trea ty. He believes that if there is an end put to this Treaty, it would be better for Canada to be annexed to the United States, lu sucli a crisis the most loyal men are those who speak out most loudly and plainly. We should prob ably open our arms and receive them when they solicit such an embrace. l...I,.- nr»i— .....— •r of England would greatly benefit tbe Can adians as well as the working classes in Eng land, Ireland aDd Scotland. Britain ought to yield tbe principle of centralizing, and estab lish an American Zollwein—llnt Is, throw down nil custom houses between Canada and the United States. England, he thinks, can never get free trade with us, but its equiva lent would be found in tbe continuance of tho Keclproslty Treaty, thus virtually deuiolisb ing these custom houses. Such a state of at - fairs would glvs the Canadiaus all the com mercial anvantages of annexation. But the question Is, would it give us such advantages ? No doubt such a Zollverien as exists among the Germau States would benefit our neigh bors, but as at present advised we shall probably keep our custom houses awhile longer at least. Canada ought to demand of England two things, he says—First an American Zollvcreiu —second, to be made neutral territory in time of war between this country and England.— That would be really comfortable for our Can adlan neighbors in such a crisis, but we think annexation would be preferable lor us, ali things considered. We have not time or space to give uuy thing like an extended view of this work, such an one as Its merits demand. It contains a fund of Information upon very important questions that concern not only Canada but also ibis country and England. Productive labor is tha only true riches of any country, and this subject has been well and wisely discussed in this volume. It is a true saying that “as w ith a family, if a nation would become rich it must sail more than it buys.*' This is the funda mental principle on which the whole system of political economy must be based. All na tions struggle to keep the balance of trade In their own favor; at least such is a wue poli cy. It has been well said by oue writer that the the "Vaukee who would feed au English man with his bread, will be obliged to butter it well with duties." A few words more, and we must close this aiticle. In the present crisis through which our country i» pa-sing, our importations are altogether too excessive. The balauce of trade is too much against us, and consequent ly the precious metals must continue to com. maud ^premium. A remedy for this maybe found in curtailing our expenses, and cutting short our extravagant mode of. living. The womeu have the power, if they would but ex ercise it, of relieving our couulry of some of the burdens which are now piessing it down. ,Silk«, satins and other expensive fabrics,might, in sonic good degree, be dispensed with, but Fashiou is a hard tyrant to overcome. We may almost say, it rules the women, and the women rule the world. The Bohemian. In the case or the libels agatust goods re covered from the wreck of steamship Bjhe mian, in which Messrs. Fessenden A Butler, Drummond, E. A F. Fox, and Ingraham were counsel for libellants, and Messrs. Sheplcy A liana for claimants, Judge Ware yesterday delivered the following decree: Thu Bohemian, a steamship ol about 2200 tons burthen with a full assorted cargo and nearly 20-J passengers, iu her voyage from Liverpool to l’orllaud, went ou a rock near this p irt about 8 o'clock in the eveuiug of the 22d of February last. There is some question on what rock site impinged, hut whatever it was it broke quite a considerable hole in iter bottom through which the water poured iu toireuts. She Ailed fast ar d the water soon reached and extinguished her Ures. Site quick began to settle in the water and was soon lirmly fixed on the l?dge from which she never moved. The first care of the master was to save the lives of lie asiengers. These were put into the boats • he ship. Uufortuuately, by some mischance, one was swamped by the side of the vessel with about forty pas sengers and all were lost. The two other boats arrived safely on land, Hindi was not more than a third or a fourth of a mile ftom U'licro lilts talilii Ini/ On the 2b 1 the vessel being firmly seated on a rock with a large hole in her bottom, it was hy the master deemed impossible to nav igate her into port with tier crew, as it mani festly was, und he discharged them and deter mined to rely on aid from the laud, informa tion of the disaster was immediately dis patched hy tlie Telegraph to the insurers in Boston ami a company of divers was sent down to take the cargo from the vessel aud bring it ashore. A Telegraphic dispatch was alsoseut to the insurerrfand owners in Canada, and they forth with entered into negotiations with a company in New Vork for saving tlie vessel and cargo. The New Vork company thought it more advisable to take the vessel into the harbor being prepared lor that pur pose, ami a bargain was finally made with them. Some time must necessarily he occu pied in making their preparation and coming to Portland, aud tho vessel lay last on the ledge from the 22d of February to the 0th of March, when a violent storm arose on the evening of that day, which completed the catastrophe. The storm commenced in the earlier pait of the night aud increased towards nioruiug. First the mU/.an ina-t weut by the board and afterwards tlie two other masts. The vessel was broken asunder, ho that her forward part fell down and the whole other tipper hold was to the violence of the sea. The wind increased to a very heavy gale and blew directly on shore, aud on Mon day the 7th the water flora the vessel to the shore Was full of a wild confusion of boxes, esses, halts and fragments of a ship. The greater part were in a place called Broad Cove, but many of the goods were scattered up the hay towards Portland aud many went west toward Ssco. Somojrenl ashore towards the city and some were taken up at sea as far as Saco harbor. ^ Tho shore all around the cape is a firm ledge aud the boxes and bales that came from the ship mixed with fragments of the wreck instead ol being lauded high on the shore, were borne on the water by the approaching waves aud carried back on the returning watei vo that the goods when they were saved were saved alter the billow btoke, by the salvors venturing into’ tbe water ou the returning tide. To save them in such a state of thing* was not only a work of great labor but of considerable danger. .Some of the salvors were taken hy the water from their 'feet and were saved front being carried to sea by those near them, one nt !ea*l was badly wounded. The goods in this way were washed on the pointed and craggy rocks, were rapidly torn and rendered nearly worthies*. It was ah object therefore to save them H|K>ed:ly. Many were *aved in Broad Cove and in the vicinity, some farther towards the town aud some on the other shore a- lar west as Blddelird. But many were sunk in tlie water and fished up from the bottom. In saving these there was no great danger when the storm was over, but it was not without much labor aud care. It is scarcely necessary to add that there was a large collection of people on the shore, who began to collect Monday morning ami increased during that aud tbe following days, who were engaged in saving tlie goods on the shore aud after the storm abated in fishing them up from tlie bottom of the water. These came and worked in companies and claim a salvage on tlie parts which they saved and which have been kept separate. N'ow can it be necessary to add that any lorce that could tie assembled by tbe master, he having dismissed Ids whole ship crew, with all that could b.' added hy the ollicers of the customs on this sudden emergency were entirely inad equate to tlie saving aud protecting of the goods. An objection in made in limine to the al lowance of any salvage in tiie«e cases ou the ground that the owners prohibited any foreign interference in tU ■ business. But the cargo ot tli ■ vessel was very large, amounting to something like a million of dollars, variously assorted and belonging to a great number of consignees and then1 was no general repre sentation of the owners present but tbe mas ter. lie from necessity was tlie agent of ail interested when no other was present, and it Wits ourluinltr It is. ilnl v in tliiu 11 n t- i. I.wl n u 1 amity to save all that he could. From him there was no prohibition in the curlier part of tire time generally understood. On tire con trary the salvors were encouraged by persous whom they had a right to suppose were inter ested in saving the cargo to proceed and save what they could, and any lorce which the captain could bring was entirely incompetent to the service, so that the question of tire right ol tlie owners in a case litre the present is in fact not presented. There was undoubtedly considerable pil lage by persons on the shore who do not claim as salvors. In so large unassorted car go suddenly scattered on a rocky shore for fifteen or eighteen miles, and so large a collec tion of persons assembled of all descriptions, some from mere curiosity and others from motives less laudable, this would be expected as a natural consequence, llut the only im peachment of theenlire honesty of those who claim as salvors, is the alleged breaking open and plundering from the trunk of a passen ger. Oapt. Slone of Kennebuuk. This came on shore Monday and was then stove at the end, but nothing was lost from it. After it came on shore the trunk was broken open and its contents plundered. If it had been constantly in the possession of the original salvors as they acted in company, there might he ground under the circumstances for hold ing Mitchell's company responsible for the contents, though the individual that commit ted the larceny might not be known. But they were taken out of the possession of the salvors ai d put under the guard of men ap pointed by the master or other persons, and whether the trunk w as rilled when in the care of one or the other, is left by the evidence in entire uncertainty. It would tin refine be un just to charge the loss on them, aud more es pecially as in every other respect they appear before the court of entire integrity. The goods saved, scattered us they were, were not either technically or substantially derelict. Tuey were not abandoned without the hope of recovery, and the master of the vessel whose duty it was to protect them while any hope of saving them remained; was present. A salvage cannot lie therefore awarded on the goods as legally derelict. But the salvors have high merit. These goods, though not abandoned, were beyoud the im mediate care and supervision of the master, aud were in the process of rapid destruction by the force of the water on the pointed rocks. They could not be saved by the mas ter nor by all the force that he could collect, and ic this situation the salvors volunteered to aid him. It was a service of no inconsid erable danger to life and limb, and for the time it was continued, of great labor and hardship; aud from all this they are entitled to a reward both for their fearless gallantry and their persevering labor. Hut above all, they richly deserve a reward for scrupulous honesty. The goods being so dispersed and unavoidably bevoud tile coutrol and supervis ion of the nia«ter, and the weather at the tame lime being so tempestuous, there was the fairest aud most tempting opportunity for Irauds and plunderage, but among all those who claim as salvors there has been but one imputed act of dishonesty and that unproved; aud i think traceable to too hasty suspicion, for I do not believe from the testi mony that any of Mitchell's party had any concern in rilling the trunks. Considerable difficulties necessarily arise with respect l» the costs aud charges in these salvage cases from the ship. Seventeen libels .have been (lied by differ ent individuals and parlies against different portions of the cargo, a part of w hich was taken when washed ashore, part from the bot tom of the sea. anil a part atloat ou the sur face of the waters. These lielonged to differ ent owners, and as some of them wete saved in the otiginal cases, and some of these cases or boxes were broken and the goods mixed w ith others, to separate them aud apportion the expenses to each, has been found imprac ticable. A large purt also of the testimony which has been heard.applies as much to one part as another, aud this testimony was taken on a general agreement to be used as tar as it was applicable in all the cases. Under these circumstances it lias been found that the only feasible course, and perhaps as equitable as any that could have been adopted, has been to charge the whole expense of saving the goftds to the whole saved. And in a salvage so irregularly and hastily made, where the principal object was to save them speedily, any attempt at au exact separation would be fruitless. On the whole, I have come to the conclu sion of allowing about 5tt per cent, after de ducting duties, arid all costs aud expenses are paid. Though these goods were not technic ally derelict, they would nearly all have been lost but for the exertions of the salvors. In this mournful calamity the owners can receive but a small part of what they might reasona bly expect if their goods had arrived safe.— To the salvors this will be, I trust, deemed a reasonable compensation. ( ultivutiun ol Flowers. A visit to Dirwangcr’s Floral Garden on Munjoy Hill, will show to any one how much the energy, perseverance and skill ol one man can do in making the bosom of Mother Earlh radiaut with most beautiful flowers and the air ragraut with their sweetest perfumes. Five years ago, Dirwaugur first began to spade up this hard, rocky soil, and prepare it for seeds and roots. Now quite a spacious area is high ly cultivated with a great variety of flowers. It is {ileasant and inspiring to walk under his glass roofs and witness the thousands of flowers unfold their glory aud beauty, which this Florist has so skillfully cultivated and so tastefully arranged, llow richly does Nature reward the skillful and industrious worker!— A sweet temper and a kind heart must be the natural and legitimate result ol such labor. It ■eems to us that the old depravity which is (aid to be iubereut In our natures, aud which has been so much talked about for' the past eighteen centuries, must jield to the cultiva tion of flowers, and give place to better and holier emotions towards Him who made the earth and established its laws. We thank this Florist for making oue spot on Munjoy Hill so beautiful and interesting. Where the land and water prospects are so flue and beautiful as they are on this hill, a garden of flowers seems to be in good keeping with the graud eure of the surrounding scenery. If any of our readers are troubled with the blues and feel vexed with worldly cares, we advise them to walk among Dirwanger’.' flow ers and look away upon the ocean, and gaze upon the green and beautiful islands that dot this expanse of waters in our harbor, anil if their spirits arc not quieted within them aud their hearts made better, then, we fear there is no hope for them.

Perhaps the family must lie childless and consist of only man and wife. The story recently circulated that President Lincoln gave to Mrs. White, his w ife's sister, a pass to go South with contra band goods, is contradicted. The pass was precisely the same us that given to oilier hr dies permitted to go South, allowed her to take only ordinary baggage, did not exempt her trunks from examination, and Gen.

Iu farther statement of the virtues of the Verna* tella, the following little incident may be fonnd somewhat illustrative: THE HONEST MILKMAN. A Milkman was passing through the street ©no foggy morning, with the uaual array ef Cim iu the back part of hi* wagon, when a feilow ou the side walk going ia au opposite direction accosted hiiu thus: "I *ay. Milky, ain't you afraid the dampre-s will get through your fans this morning?” “Oh, ao.” say- the milkman, '*1 gave them a coat of Ver uatclla before 1 left home." The fellow pa*«ed on, reflecting upon the diuger of attempting jokes on country men who read the newapapt rs. Although the those use of the VoruateUa is some what novel, and iu tact not recommended excepting to very honest milkmen, yet. for the Sole* of Boot* and felioes, we do recommend it iu the highest terms; aud it ia our candid belief that it will sure more live* than all the patent medeciuoj ever com pounded.
