5,'AIM 1’ltKSS* POHTLAM). Wednesday Morning, December 12,1866 Annexation of Ihe CnnnSax, It is admitted by the Canadian newspapers that there is one British American who (avors liie annexation of the British Provinces on this continent to tlie United States. This sin gular person is known as the ltev. Joseph A. Allan, and was lately Professor of Moslem History in Queen’s College. Kingston.C. W.— may be now perhaps, though he has been ask ed to resign since the publication of his an nexation letters. We publish this morning an amusing sketch ot his life and character, tak en from the Toronto Globe. Mr. Allan ap pears to be a very respectable gentleman, as much entitled to an opiulou of his own as even the editor of the Globe. • The sketch is amusiug, not so much lor its obvious misrep resentation of Mr. Allan’s character, as for Us exhibition of the chronic fear which seems to possess the Canadian mind of being inadvert antly brought into the American Union. The Globe says, “Every mail brings us a batch ot Yankee editorials gravely discussing the Can adian movement of annexation.” The Que bec Chronicle says, “Having failed to Fenian iie us Into the Union, the experiment is be ing tried of biking us into annexation.’’ The Montreal Telegraph explains that “one of the institutions of the United States is organized lalsehood,” and adds that “the appi.cation of this system to Canada for certain political and diplomatic ends enables us to understand its workings.” It is encouraging news that the Canadian press is in a lair way to understand anything, though that pleasing reflection is immediately dampened by the egregious nonsense which accompanies and envelopes the announce ment. If it were possible, without trepan ning a score or more of Canadian journalists, to beat it into their heads that the American people are not just uow thinking or caring very much about them, iu any way, and are by no means longing for their frozen territory with its mongrel races, associated like oil and water, It would be worth while to attempt the teat. There is nothing iu the territory of the Provinces to excite our cupidity. We have quite as much territory of our own already, as wc want. There is nothing in the charac ter of the Provincials to excite our affection to any ungovernable pitch. We are not drawn towards the French Canadians of Lower Canada, or the Uritish snobs of the tipper Province. The inhabitants of the Lower Provinces come o( better stock. They were the Tories of our Revolutionary war, and at its close left their country for their country's good. There has never been any love lost between us since that tearless sepa ration. We had nearly forgotten them. They have handed down for two generations their inextinguishable hatred against the United States. When our sore trouble came upon us, they openly rejoiced. The snobs o.' the Canadas took their cue from the Times. The French haven't heard of the war yet. Mon treal was the headquarters of Southern conspirators. Halifax was a rendezvous for blockade runners Whatever this, that, or tbe other American may say, Canadians may be quite sure that tbe people of this country have forgotten none of these things and want no intimate alliance with the cowardly, back biting insects who kept up such a buzzing two or three years ago. It seems necessary to use pretty plaiu lan guage, in order to reach the apprehension of the writers of these hysterical editorials.— There is something else which must equally lie said, to convey the whole truth. There are Uritish Americans whose encouraging words at a time when we needed encouragement, will be long remembered. Under the snob Irish txiei'ioi ol the transplanted Britons there are sterling qualities, which we cheerfully ac knowledge. The Canadian Frenchmen are a simple tolk ; it is impossible to harbor any ill will against them. Our Tory cousins, down East, if they would out let us forget their Toryism, are not altogether unestimable.— Wounded we certainly were by the jeers and insults which came to our ears, while we were struggling lor life here. We desire no inti mate association with the Provincial British. The thing is impossible while this generation is upon the stage. But neither do we desire to perpetuate ill will. Let bygones be bygones. Let our neighbors go on to complete their confederation, or manage their own affairs in such other way as may suit them better. Let there be peace between us, and if a reciproc ity of commeieiai favors should be advantag eous to both parties, let us have that; but no annexation, and as little talk about it as will possibly answer. Gen. Whittlesey’s Case—It is to be hop ed that the proceedings in the trials of the sev eral officers court-martialed on complaint of Generals Steedman and Fullerton, and honor ably acquitted, will be speedily published, in accordance with Gen. Howard’s recommenda tion. In Gen. Whittlesey’s case the charges were two; 1. Conduct to the prejudice of good order and military discipline. 2. Conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. He was found gnilty of the first charge and ac quitted of the second charge by the Court, and was sentenced to be reprimanded by his com manding officer, the Commissioner of the Bu eau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands. The proceedings, findings and sen tence of the Court have been approved and or dered to be carried into execution by the Sec retary of War. The following special order, issued last week, has been published, and shows how closely a reprimand may sometimes resemble a panegyric: , War Department, i Bureau of Refugees and Abandoned J. Lands, Washington, Dec. 4,1866.1 Sueeiat Order No. 173- First; In compliance with instructions embraced in General Court Martial Orders No. 212, dated Nov. 17, 1866, War Department, Adjutant General’s Office’, Washington, requiring me to reprimand Bre vet Brig.-Gen. Eliplialet Mittleton Whittlesey, Colonel 46th United States Colored Troops, I have to say that the findings and sentence of the second sjpecification of charge No. 1 are deemed sufficient censure. A life of integrity, devoted to the welfare ol his fellow men, an ar my record above reproach, and conduct that calls lroni the Court such ail expression as to liis fidelity to the government, and his honesty and justice to the freedmen under his charge, make me join with the Court in the belief that some inadvertaiice to the gravity of the facts reported to him, occasioned his neglect to or der a prompt and thorough examination. To the extent of the above implication I do bere bv reprimand Brevet Brig.-Gen. Eliphalet Whittlesey On the receipt of this orderT Gen E. Whittlesey will report by letter to the Com missioner for reassignment to duty. O. O. Howard, Major- Gen. Commander. The RoBfif.—The Secretary of the Worces ter Couuty Horticultural Society is evidently not enamoured of the robin. In his annual re port on the “Birds of Massachusetts" he says that, He cannot too strongly express his convic tion of the imperative necessity for the diffu sion, throughout the community, of a more cor rect and exact knowledge of the character and habits of our birds. Anything—It matters lit tle what—that will thoroughly cure the exist ing sickly sentimentality about the American robin. Your Sccrecary, in vindication of his position heretofore assumed, has spent much time, aud lost some Christian grace that he could illy spare, in watching the feathcr.-d nuisance. In the absence of strawberries with which to tickle its dainty palate, it gorged itself upon cherries. When that fruit, so rare and unwonted, was gone, the black-cap raspberry was not disdained. But to measure the full ca pacity of an appetite almost insatiate, the de spairing cultivator must observe its ravages among pears. Nothing less than the Bartlett, Belle Lucrative and bekel will serve the tastid lou-. taste. The fabled rush of the Harpies to their gluttonous feasts was as nothing compared to the nocking of these birds of ill-uinen to their pomologicul banquet. Remaining with us so long as anything was left upon our trees they have now migrated well fattened and plumu to stuff the pot pies of a wiser people It is urged that at times—before fruit is ripe enough for their excellencies—this robin of purs eats a few earl h-worms. Possiblyhe may if the ground is previously dug up for him, for lie is too proud to work and to scratch he is ashamed! But the poor worm is harmless, aud therefore, to insure his destruction this worse % - — -^ than useless pest is protected by law*; Let us pray, if \\a have no other resource, that he may die of a surfeit. Now we can welly enough-exercise a litt 10 Christian grace In uttering an earnest protest against such a wholesale condemnation of the robin. Grant that he is dainty and voracious; what then? Why, there are less berries to piek and less truit to gather on his account.— That ie the whole of it; and for this lack the robin is undeniably chargeable. But to be surprised ot a bright spring morning, by the clear, full, euthusiastie, inspiring, thrilling note& of the active, wide-awake songster, with the many pleasant, exhilirating associations connected with liis early advent, more than compensates—yea, repays a hundred told—the loss of all the berries and the truit which his alleged dainty palate and voracious maw so largely appropriate. Let the law, then, staud, and the penalty of its violation be strictly en forced. Ifnp>lr«u’a Reply lo Mr. Seward’s Din pul eh. lu answer to Mr. Seward’s dispatch of the 23d November, demanding a "satisfactory res olution” of the French government by tele graph, at once. Mr. Bigelow replies,— In answer to a verbal communication, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, M. Mousticr, writes me to-day that “France has not changed her resolution, but that upon military considera tions she has deemed it expedient to substitute one compreheusiv i evacuation tor an evacua tion in ; eparate parts. All of our troops will leave Mexico In the month of March.” That is to say, the Emperor adheres to the policy which Mr. Seward pronnur.oed “every way inconvenient and exceptionable,” and iu which he furthermore took leave to say, the U uited States “cannot acquiesce.” It is one of the unfortunate results of such reckless writing, that the Secretary will have to eat his own words. The United States will acquiesce in a change of plan which promises to bring about a complete evacuation of Mexico by French troops in March instead ot November, 1867. Mr. Bigelow, who has the best opportu nity to know, has no doubt that the Emperor is acting in good faith. Senator Sumner, chair man ot the Committee on Foreign Relations, says he is satisfied, from the information which he has ou the subject, that the Mexican ques tion is solving itself very rapidly, and that there is no need of taking any steps iu the matter.— He says that Napoleon is as anxious to get out ot Mexico as we are to get him out, and that, if left alone, he will have all the French troops out of the couutry within two or three months. Considerable remark has been occasioned by the unusual spectacle ot conferences at the Capitol between Secretary Seward and Thad deus Stevens and Mr. Seward and Mr. Fessen den. A bettor explanation of these confer ences than any which has heretofore been of fered, is to be found in the embarrassing posi tion in which Mr. Seward finds himself. I The Tempebance Refokm.—It is most grat I ifyiug to us, as it is no doubt to all friends of ' reform, to observe a general awakening among I the people on the subject of Temperance in our own State, as well as in other States, and that the friends of the cause see the importance of bringing to their aid an auxiliary whose in fluence is beyond all estjgiate,—the press,—an agency employed by all wise educators and re formers the world over. Not only religion, philosophy, and politics, but every shade of re ligious faith, and every hue of political creed, must have its published organs. But, if we give the people no Temperance reading, and the cause has no particular organ of its own, they of course suppose it is not a subject of sufficient importance to have their attention; especially is this true of the young. There fore, it was with pleasure that we announced the proposed publication of a weekly Temper ance paper,—the Riverside Echo. This paper affords the friends of Temperance and reform an excellent opportunity to serve the cause by circulating among the people one of the best papers in the land, filled with good, whole some Temperance and other uselul reading.— We unite with the Price Current in saying that such a paper as the Echo is much needed at this time, and should be largely circulated and read, for “wine is a mocker, and strong drink is raging” all around us, and the allure ments to evil are on every hand. Friends of Temperance, at once subscribe lor the Echo, and use your iulluence in extending its circu lation, if you would see a steady and healthy advancement of the good cause iu our State, A Good Deal too Sharp —Why will not the Argus give over the vain attempt to be critical and precise, and nil that, and be satis fied to apply its common sense to the ques tions it is called upon to discuss! Here is its last experiment with the critical boomerang, shied at the Press, but returning with great ce lerity and accuracy upon the sender: Our ueighbor, when essaying to be technical, should be careful to be so. in the article yes terday it defined treason to “consist in levying war against the United States,” yet if' the people of Canada were to make war against us, we presume the Press would not claim they were guilty of treason. Its definition was therefore defective by the omission of an im portant element of the crime. Again, it said: “There can be no treason without war.” Shay’s Rebellion in Massachusetts, and the Whiskey Rebellion in Pennsylvania, were not wars technically speaking, yet we presume the Press does not doubt that the citizens of Mas sachusetts and New Hampshire who engaged in the former and the citizens of Pennsylva nia who eugaged in the latter, were guilt) of treason. The Press “defined treason” by quoting ver batim the Constitutional definition of that crime. If we had for a moment supposed that the Ar gus would fall into this painfully ludicrous misapprehension, we would have marked the citation distinctly. As the case stands, though, we regret that our neighbor is not satisfied with the definition, we don’t see how he can help himself. The Press is not responsible for the shortcomings of the Constitution, and the immortal old instrument itself will probably stick to its “defective” definitions and contin ue to assert that “there ran be no treason with out war,” without much regard to the Argus. See art. 3, sec. 3. The Illinois Senatorship.—According to a Washington dispatch Hon. E. B. Wash burne authorizes an emphatic denial of the statement sent from the West, to the effect that be is a candidate for Senator from Illi nois. A t'it median Annexation! si. The genius at Kingston, who has set hall the newspapers in the United States wild about tlie annexation of Canada to the United States, deserves a passing notice. His name is Joseph A. Allan. He was some years since a clergy man of the Church of England, having a parish on Wolf's Island, but some difficulty about the orthodoxy of his views, we believe, closed his active administrations. He is wealthy, and “Alwington,” from which he dates, is the house which was the Governor’s residence when Kingston was the Seat of the Govern ment. After he quitted preaching he turned farmer, and proved a good neighbour. Latter ly he spent some time in travelling in the Uni ted States, and became enamoured of the Yan kees. Previously he had been as ultra-British as Irish Protestants often are. He is described as a vain, impulsive, impressible man, easily flattered, liable to sudden changes of opinion, and ready to take up with every new fancy.— He ip a bit of a poet, too, and once published a volume of poems—one of the chief of which was the “Day-dreams of a Butterfly”—a title under which he should .publish his annexation letters. Mr. Allan is a “Lecturer on Modern History” it Queen’s College, Kingston—a posi tion of little importance, but one nevertheless be has been asked to resign since the appear ance of his annexation letters. But he says he will not—a refusal which exhibits very bad taste on his part. He ought to be ashamed to insist upon compromising the reputation of a respected University, The flattery and conrtesy which a pleasant fellow, spending plenty of money in the States, very naturally received from the people with whom he came in contact, proved too much for the weak nerves of Joseph A. Allan, and the consequence is that the gentleman is a full blown annexationist. His vanity induces him to write letters proclaiming his views to the world, and as country newspapers are usually civil to rich men there is nolhlug wonderful in the fact that they And their way to the pub hc. Once Mr. Allan got his letters in print, the * ankee newspaper correspondents were bound to make the most of them, and they dished them up in the form of a sermon—taking care to alter his words whenever an alteration would improve the sensation.— When Mr. Allan in his letters said his views were distasteful to a “large” portion of the Oa uadian .people, the 1 aukeecorrespondent made him say, in the imaginary sermon, that liis views were distasteful to a “small” portion of the people. Out of this sensation a terrible ado is being made in the States. Every mail brings us a batch of Yankee editorials, gravely discussing the Canadian movement of annexa tion. It is astonishing how easy it is to gull a Yankee editor on that subject. The cleverest journals in the Union can be hoaxed about the anxiety of Canadians for annexation as often as any liar would take the trouble to do it.— Toronto Olobe. # SPKClAh NOTICKS. i\ i : w books for THIJ HOUIJ VYS i iVUOLE^Ai.L AMD DETAIL !
