PORTLAND. Saturday Morning, January 19, 1867. The Reciprocity Trrnty. Five yeirs ago the Legislature of Maine vot ed, with but one dissenting voice, in favor of terminating the Reciprocity treaty with Great Britain. That treaty gave us the privileges ot fishing on the coasts of British America, of navigating the St. Lawrence and the Cana dian Canals, of floating our lumber down the St. John to the sea, and ol exchanging freely with the British colonists various products of the farm, the mine, the forest and the sea. Notice was duly given and the treaty was ter minated in I860. The first result was a re newal of the ancient quarrel about the fisher ies, involving the necessity of sending British and American men-oi-war to the fishing grounds to keep the peace. Our lumbermen on the St. John found themselves embarrassed to such an extent as to be obliged to call lor relief by special legislation. Western and Ca nadian products are seeking new routes of transportation, though that is partly due to the mismanagement of the Grand Trunk line. The lumber used in our ship yards, the wool wanted in our factories, are taxed so heavily that ship building and the manufacture of j woolens have ceased to be profitable. Our | daily Ibod, our bread stull's and meats have become more costly. Our trade with the Provinces had increased from ibrty-lliree mill ions in 1800 to sixty-nine millions in I860, with a balance uniformly in favor of the Unit ed States except in 1864-0, when all our ener gies and products and all we could draw from our neighbors were absorbed in great cam paigns. The free development of that trade has been checked and thwarted by the restric tions which have lollowed tue abrogation of the treatv. These results have been in some degree an inevitable consequence of the financial con dition of the country. While the revenue system of the United States is still uusettled, and the scheme ot confederation seems likely to transfer all questions ol commerce with the British Provinces to a single central auth ority, the recommendation of Secretary Mc Culloch that ‘ this subject should not be placed beyond the control of Congress, but left to concurrent legislation and such regu lations as the Treasury Department may be authorized to prescribe,” is likely to prevail, as it should. Nevertheless there is a growing couviction that the Hue interests of Maine were misconceived by the Legislature oi 1««2. U is generally believed, indeed we may as well say known, that the question was not thor oughly examined by that Legislature, and that the action which committed the State on the wrong side was rather the result of im pulse than of deliberation. It is desirable that the matter should he reconsidered, not now with a view to the immediate renewal of the treaty, but in order nevertheless that the spirit of the treaty may control our present and fu ture legislation. The influence ot Maine ought to be felt in that direction. It was supposed in 18fi2 that the lumbering and agricultural interests of the State would be greatly benefited by the abrogation of the treaty. To some extent they doubtless have been, but not sufficiently to counterbalance the injury inflicted upon other branches of business. The time is not far distant when the Cana dian forests will become indispensable to the American people. The Maine and Michigan pineries are limited in extent and diminishing yearly. We are already dependent upon New Brunswick lor tne higli-p. iced soft pine, used for tiDe work and finishing. There is no sub stitute. A very large portion of the ship timber used iu Maine and elsewhere is dra\\D from the forests of Canada and New Bruns wick. If our own forests would supply the American market it might answer to exclude foreign lumber by taxation. They notorious ly do not. Our lumbermen are aware, and do not hesitate to say, that the demand for their product will not be seriously ailected by tbe^ee admission of foreign gion tbs. Mean while the tax now imposed seriously checks building operations, indirectly raising rents aud the cost of manufactures, and is in ellect transferring our ship-yaitls to the coast of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Our woolen mills are directly affected by tbe abrogation of the treaty. The wool known in our markets as Canada wool consists wholly of fleeces from long-wooled Leicester and Cotswoid sheep. The success of our manu facture: s in fabricating alpacas and tbe pros perity ot our worsted manufactures have been wholly due to the opportunity of obtaining tbe free wool of Canada. Our farmers are begin ning to grow long wool but cannot as yet even approximately supply the market. The con sumption of long wool in this country was es timated in 1805 at 5,500,000 pounds and tbe growth at about 200,000 pounds. Canada sup plied then about 5,000,000 pounds, so that there was and is a steady demand for the en tire product of both countries. That demand ought to be fostered and increased; but the tax is destroying it. Is it for tbe advantage of our wool growers to destroy a market at their doors? Is it lor the advantage of Maine, with a manufacturing career just opening before her, to build up woolen fa curies in Canada by taxing them out ot existence at borne ? Tbe Provincial tariits have hitherto been designed for revenue merely and have made no discrimination between manufactured goods coming from tbe United States and from Eng land. This policy gave us the advantage of proximity. Our manufacturers ought to sup ply the Provincial markets. Under the Keci procity treaty they might have done it. They may do it still ii they can obtain their raw ma terials at a rale to render competition with Eng land possible. If the woolen interest must be saeriliced to the national necessities, at least it should be spared as much as possible. Maine will not object to bearing her full share of the national burden; but she ought not to stand any longer in the false position ot asking as a tavor, to have her burden increas ed. It ought to be understood as the settled opinion of the pcftple of this State, that the termination of the treaty, however just and necessary, has been and is a serious disadvan tage to us. Colonial Con federal ion. A correspondent of the Detroit Post, named J. N. Cadieux. possibly aCanadian Frenchman, calls attention to the bearing of Lord Dur ham’s famous report to tlie British Parliament in 1839 upon the Confederation question now agitated in the British Amencan Provinces. Mr. Cadieux regards the movement as inimi cal to the United States. It certainly is d : signed to strengthen the Colonies for self protection, though probably not for aggress ive measures. Just how Mr. Cadieux would have the I nited Stilt es interfere to arrest the movement he does not state. Here is what he does say : Lord Durham foresaw the beuign and pow erlul mtlucnce of the Republic on tlie w hole American continent, and as a faithful ser vant of England, which has never slept sound since the loss of her thirteen American colonies, gave liis views ot anti-republicanism ana urged Britain to take steps to frustrate, it possible, the apparent iuiure of North America, advocating the confederacy of her remaining colonies. The American nation is generous and for giving. but is it not well that, after so many saciilices and sorrows, and to mu.|, |os8, we should uot forget the ^>ast and thus prevent any more war and desolation ? Let every American, man or woman, remember that Lngland is and will always be our er.emv. It is our duty to leach this to our children, not to teach animosity among nations or individ uals, hut to preserve the land where the op pressed find refuge. Could Britain, as a power, be made bettor, it would be well to forget, but it seems that political or national evils take their origin in that country of op pression. Here are the words of Loid Dur ham, speakiug of the projected confederacy: “Such an union would enable all the provin ces to co-operate for all common purposes, aud above all it would form a great and powerful people, which, under the protection of the British empire, might in some measure conn terbalance the preponderant and increasing in fluence of the United States on the American continent! “If we wish to prevent the extension of this influence, it can only be done by raising uu tor the North American colonist some nation ality of his own, by elevating these small anil unimportant communities iuio a society hav ing some object* having a national importance, “'i'1 ey thus giving their inhabitants a country winch they will . unwilling to see absorlied wonLi"“t powerful. I thought that it ...i tendency of afederutiou sanction by a monarchical govern tive u’ni. UU ,Jr **cunie a complete legisJa of British iutere*u*by thf^^° *" !*“' I,rotectio?

W henoue is at war the oth ers are at war, and the hostilities that art call ed by an attack on one must seriouslv com promise the we I tare of the rest. Thus the dis pute between Great Britain and the State of -Maine appears to immediately involve the in terests oi none ol the e colonies, except New Bruuswick or Lower Canada, to one of which the toiritory claimed by us must b.-ioug. But if a war were to commence oil this ground it is must probal 1; that the Americai a would select Upper Canada as the most vulnerable, or, at any rate, as the easiest point of attack. Tho dispute respecting the flsheries of Nova Scotia would involve precisely the samo consequen ces. .'Our uuiou for common dtftrse against for eign enemies is the natural bond of connect-on that holds together the great communities of the world, aud between no parts of any king dom or State is the necessity ior such an union more obvious thau between the whole of these provinces. Is not this clear onough ? The confedera tion has no other objects than to protect the intet ests of Knytand, unit toinakv soldiers of the colonists for the profit of Knytand uyaiimt the l nded Mates : The present apparent birth ol the Confederation ol British America will be nothing hut the chicken of the Dur ham egg. W ill not the American Government awake before these tacts and look at these inimical combinations full in the lace ? But it is said : •‘ We wish uot to coerce Canada into annexa tion. The Canadians are opposed to it. ’ This is absurd. There is no need of coercion now. Let the French, the English hating population of Canada, understand well the leeling of tiie Americans toward them. The French Canadians are well disposed toward American institutions ; but the venal press of the colonies, which is bought and paid by the home government, show us Americans as a material people, and corrupted by lamunerce and ambition. That we are the sworn enemies or the Canadians many poor credulous ones believe. Is it not our duty to give our sympathy to those descendants ol Dulayotte : tens of tliou sauds ot whom have fought with us in the late war to maintain the most sacred of gills, « true democratic government.’ It may soon he loo late lor peaceable aetien. The time may soon come that, through complications of some kind, war may issue iroui the deceit jut secret combinations of KnyUuud. Then we would lind ourselves with Canada as a e did with the South— unprepared. And although no one would doubt the success of our arms, ( should the South rernaiu subdued, ) oventlul war and miseries would inevitably follow on poor humanity on both sides. Any thinking American who loves his country—any states man, cannot shift his eyts to this iact. The Governor's Salabt.—We are glad to see that the Senate Las amended the report of its Committee by iixing the Governor’s salary at $doO<J instead ol $2oU0. Nothing less than $3000 ought to he considered for a moment. The expenses of living have more thau doubled since 1824, and it is a plain duty to provide for our public servants accordingly. Nobody believes or pretends to believe that a Governor of Maine ought to live, or can live becomingly, on the present pittance. If any body wants to keep the State in the humiliat ing posture of asking her citizens to pay for the privilege of serving her, that man we have not seen. The just mean between parsimony and extravagance is the best economy for a State as well as for a family. RULIUIOUS. —Eev. S. C.

Frothingham of New York has preached ami printed two sermons that are making a sensation among liberal Christians. Ho takes the position of a coucoutcr, from Unitariauism as well as the other forms of Christianity. He says that Unitasianism docs not flourish, aud he doubts whether it can ever obtain any wide growth on American soil. His view is thus expressed: “The principle is this: that the organ of the Divine Spirit is the consecrated reason of the present time. The consecrated reason, 1 say; by which I mean the reasan directed toward tho personal and social improvement of man. The Romanist says, the Divine Spirit is in the ordinances of the church. Tho Protestant says, the Divine Spirit is iu the letter of the Scriptnro. The Unitarian of the elder school says, the Divitio Spirit is not in the ordinance* of the church or in the letter of tho Scripture, but in the whole reason of the Christian past, uttering its word through the fundamental beliefs of Christendom. We say, tho Divine Spirit is in the reason of the present timo as it turns itself honestly, seriously, believingly, reverently to ward the study of truth and good.” —A new low church paper has been estab lished in New York, called ‘ The Protestant Churchman,” Its special mission being to resist the inroads of ritualism* already showing itself in this country. There is a tempest brewing in Trinity ahurch New York, on this question. The rector has lately introduced the “proces sional hymn, with bowings and crossings before the altar, and the souls of the anti-ritualists are stirred within them at what they deem a man ifest turning to Rome. • —Rev.
