It lias become an old and significant pro verb that those who dance shall pay the pi per. This is as true of nations as of individ uals ; in politics as in matters of private and personal concern. OurPiovindal neighbors on the North and East, are about setting up national housekeeping on a somewhat magnif icent scale, by rolling three or four provinces Into or.e, and giving to the confederated gov ernment thus formed larger powers, new functions and increased dignity. Canada,—both East and West,—New Bruns wick and Nova Scotia propose to become one consolidated vice-royalty, with its head at Ot tawa, ruled by a Viceroy or Governor-Gener al, and a Parliament with Cabinet and other appendages of greatness and power. We are of those who see nothing In this movement to alarm the fears or excite either the envy or jealousy of our people, believing as we do that it is a matter over which our neighbors have hill jurisdiction,—with the consent of the pa rent government,— and i hat it is but a step ping-stone to better understanding and more intimate and profitable relations between the business people and interests of the two coun tries. Confederation means in Canada, to a large extent, the equalization of government burdens and tbe distribution of the public debt of the province among the people of the confederation, thus imposing upon the lower provinces some of the burdens now resting upon tbe western provinces; burdens incurred by works of internal improvement which arc claimed to be largely tor the benefit of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia as well a3 for Canada. But with intelligent, far-seeing Canadians, Confederation means a preliminary step to independence, it being well understood that tbe English Government will oppose no obstacles to independence when once satisfied that the peo ple ol the Provinces really desire it. It is no de parture iiom the truth to say that, by anoth er portion of intelligent Canadians, independ ence is looked upon as the condition prece dent ot annexation to the United States.— We do not say—for we do not believe—that annexation is now desired by a large or influ ential class of Canadians; we only say that, If annexation is ever to come pcacably, it must come after independence. But enough of this, for the present at least. Our neighbors having determined upon Con federation, and uniting their fortunes under a common Provincial government, and full and free censent to the banns having been given by the home parliament and the crown, they will soon begin to realize the correctness of the adage quoted at the bead of this article in their own case and under their new relations. Royalty is expensive, and even quasi royalty Is a very different thing from republican sim plicity. To illustrate this fact we need refer spe cifically only to a single item of the expense about to fall upon tbe Canada treasury,—the salary of the chief officer, Governor General or Viceroy as be may be desgnated, and who, it is generally understood, will be tbe second son of Queen Victoria. While tbe appoint ment of this officer wifi rest with the crown, the salary, like all other salaries in the Prov ince, and all other expenses except those for military defence, are to be paid exuust*t>y the nrovfficnn Government By late cable dispatches It appears that the hill which has Just passed Parliament, pro viding for confederation, fixes the annual sal ary of the Executive at $50,000! with four Lieutenant Governors, whose united salaries will no doubt amount to an equal if not a much larger sura. The united population of the provinces proposed to be consolidated, ac cording to the latest census reports, is 3,088, 345. The aggregate population of New Eng land is 3,135,301 or 40,056 more than recon structed Canada. We have no figure to rep resent the relative wealth or valuation of New England and the pioposed Contederacy or ‘-Dominion,” but it is perfectly sate to say that the valuation of Massachusetts alone nearly equals if it does not largely exceed the valuation of the whole of British America proposed to be included under the new repfme. While New England exceeds the proposed Confederacy in population and overwhelm ingly exceeds it in wealth, the salaries of her six chief executive officers combined amount to less than $10,000, or one-fi/th the salary proposed for his Royal Highness who is to grace the quasi throne at Ottawa. The Judi cial salaries of Canada are in keeping with the Executive, and the same is true of official salaries generally. The truth is, while croakers and discontent ed spirits often complain of the expense and extravagance of our republican government, —and Heaven knows we are not deficient in extravagance,—there is probably no human government on earth, of similar extent and responsibility, that is so cheaply maintained as ours, or that necessarily imposes so lew burdens upon the enterprise and industry of the nation. The fact that the country is now groaning under excessive taxation does not militate against this general statement, for this taxation is no part of the legitimate or necessary burden imposed upon democratic or popular governments, but the fruit of a wicked rebellion, waged by demagogues and tyrants in the interest of despotism, for the purpose of quenching the fires of constitu tional liberty and thwarting the mission of republican institutions and counterworking the efforts of those who would promote hu man progress, lighten human burdens and give increased respect to human rights by bringing up the masses to a higher level, and inspiring the hearts of toiling millions with love of liberty and self-respect. The institu tions of freedom, of popular liberty and of republican government are comparatively simple, and may be enjoyed at a cheap rate, while royal distinctions and monarchical in stitutions are costly luxuries which draw largely upon a nation’s industry and re sources. A Nenxiblc Southern Governor. Gov. Brown of Georgia, like Gov. Orr of South Carolina, begins to take a sensible view of the situation of the rebel States. lie is dis posed to come down from the chivalric digni ty which has too long kept the Southern States, like the prodigal son, away from the house in which is bread enough and to spare in their efforts to subsist upon the husks of a haughty,rebellious and ill-natured spirit. Ac cepting without reserve the reconstruction bill recently passed by both houses of Con gress, he urges a like acceptance upon his peo ple. If president Johnson does not commit the foolish blunder of attempting the defeat of that bill, there is reason to believe reconstruc tion will soon be commenced under its pro visions, so that before another year shall have passed away mauy if uot all the States recent ly in rebellion will be restored to their full powers in the Union. This is what is want ed ; what will restore confidence, and give a a new impetus to all the springs of business activity. Starting right, prosperity is not only sure to follow but to be permanent. In Gov. Brown’s admirable letter to the people of his State he says: We now have the assurrance of Congress in the passage of this bill that this shall settle the question of our admission. Let us comply with them, and be ready to be represented in the nest Congress as soon as posssble. I respectfully suggest that the people of the several counties ot this State, who favor the Sroposal, hold public meetings with as little elay as possible, and urge upon the governor to convene the Legislature and recommend them to take prompt action. » . • * * If we reject the terms proposed in the Sherman bill, I confess i see no hope lor the future. Should we accept them, I trust the example ot Georgia may be followed by other States, and that this vexed question may soon be pormamentlv settled upon the best terms which we will ever be able to get. I am aware of the rapidity of the changes which we are requited to make, aud of the natural ^prejudices which our people enter tain against negro suffrage, but we should not forget that In yielding to an Inevitable neces sity, the*? people were raised among ai and naturally sympathize with us. Their conduct during the war proved this, ll, then we treat them kindly, pay them their Wa™s promptly, and in ail respects deal justlybv them, we shall seldom have cause to complain of their refusal to respect our wishes or con sult cur Interest at the ballot-box. The Fortieth Congress. The first session of the 40th Congress com mences to-day. Several States will be unrep resented In the lower House, at the opening. New Hampshire, Connecticut, Kentucky, Tennessee, and we think California, have not elected their Representatives. The first -of the above States elects early next week, and Connecticut early next month. We hive seen no political analysis or classification of the new House, so lar as elected, but It is not probable that relatively either party will be much stronger than in the last Congress. In the Senate there are several changes, all except one tending to increase the radical strength of that body. Several other Sena tors, now misrepresenting their States, will be changed just as soon as the people can get at them. Two new Senators and one Repre sentative will be added from the new State of Nebraska, all of -them of the radical stripe. It is a reireshing fact that the famous “Ne braska hill,” gotten up lu the interest of slavery, and designed to extend the area o: huma.i bondage, should have resulted so soon in adding two new radically nnti-slavery States to the UnloD. It only shows that “The best la <1 schemes ’o mic e an’ men, Gang at. aglpj." The length of the session to be commenced to-day depends no doubt largely upon tbe De construction question. This settled, we see no reason why the session may not be a short one, and even if this work has to be gone over again, with the parties in Congress standing as at present, we do not sec why much time should be consumed in the enactment of meas ures calculated to give rest to the country. Music Hath Charms. A benison on that fiddle! Fes,—a fiddle—it is certainly nothing more; we should never think of applying the name of violin to so forlorn an instrument. It Is cracked, it is battered, its staining is worn off, anil it has forgotten tbe uses of varnish. One of its strings, too, is often gone, and to judge from the sounds the instrument emits, its place must be supplied by rather inadequate substitutes. Its utterances are not musics 1 in any ordinary sense. It squeaks, it wheezes, it wails like a banshee, and bowls like a whole battalion of cats in an alley at midnight.— Nevertheless, we love it; and the benediction wc have uttered above is wholly sincere. For that old fiddle is a source of unspeaka ble happiness. Daily, as we wend our way through that inviting and Iragiant thorough fare leading from Fore to Commercial street, and modestly designated as “Fifth Avenue,' our ears are saluted by its piercing strains, Is suing from one of the board shanties which adorn that picturesque locality. The walls are not very thick, but a good bank of earth in the rear and a comfortable snow-drift on one side serve to keep o.t a good deal of cold; while a r.cketv stove in the mid dle of the one apartment glows with a fire al most equal to the requirements of a barbecue. A big dirt-heap lies conveniently near the door, In and out of which swarm a mixed company of pigs, ducks, Lons and dirty, red okeeked children, to say nothing of a troop of small dogsf^ttoae ntimiiers ami fomilisr nab.ts remind one or the tribe of “Mustard” and “Pepper,” which Ilarry Bertram touud domes ticated at ‘'Charlie's Hope” on the first occa sion when he accompanied”Dandie Dumont” to that hospitable abode. through the open door, or the small four' paueu window, we discern the musician, a sturdy Celt, seated astride oi a broken-backed chair, tho precious fiddle laid aflbetiouately against his unshaven chin, and his brawny light arm performing most astonishing evolu tions in the air as lie executes a tune beariug some resemblance to “Lakes of Klliatney.”— Talk of enthusiastic audiences! Not Carl Rosa when he holds some vast crowd spell bound with bis wonderful melody—not Ca mille Urso when the gleam of her white arm and the flash of her diamond studded bow keep time to her etherlal strains, is ever lis tened to with more exquisite delight, with more entire admiration. Our fiddler’s listen ers are only some three or four of his fellow hod-carriers, as many rough-haired washer women with their red, soapy arms crossed over their wet aprons, and the swann of round-eyed, animal-looking children who have only left off playing with tho dogs and pigs to listen for one moment to the “bit fiddle," but our musician feels the inspiration of an appre ciative audience. The good wile Bridget pauses in the act of dishing up the potatoes for dinner, and with her round moon face turned over one shoulder and all irradiated by a smile of delight, stands listening to strains which carry her back to the cabin of her child hood, the companions and scenes which she invests with as bright a halo as can adorn the early memories of the more cultured and re fined. Happy memories, which Paddy in his exile always cherishes, of that “sweetest isle of the ocean,” whose fields are the greenest, whose skies are the bluest in all the wide world, come floating hack to all; the warm Irish heart which however degrad ed or encrusted seems always to keep tho springs of domestic affection open, grows ten der with thoughts of home. Under the spell of that music, such as it is, every listener is trans formed for tho moment into a different crea ture. An hour hence the women may be brawling over their washing-tubs, and for the mon, every mother’s son of them ruay spend to-night in the lock-up; but for this moment at least, they are peaceable, and gentle, and human, and refined. Again we say, bless that Addle! Apple Orchard*. Ka State in the Union oan raise better apples than Maine; and the apples of this State will keep later than those grown in regions south of us. Formerly they were so abundant in some parts of Maine as to he almost valueless. We have sSen them sold in orchards at a four pence ha’ penny a bushel, whilst other bushels were left to rot on the ground—not worth mak ing into cider which would not sell for four and six ponce per barrel. Of late years, orchards have been on the decline, partly from neglect, and partly from natural causes. What these causes are, it may be difficult to explain with certainty. Soma think that the race, as such, lias its age, and must in time die out. That this is true of individual varieties, we be lieve i9 true; there are certain apples and pears, whioh were in their glory fifty years ago, but which, if reproduced now, are insipid and life less things. Who now can raise an Old Colo ny High Top Sweeting which will have the size, fragrance and luscious sweetness of the same kind of fruit grown in the early part of the present century ? Then we had the St. Mi chael’s and the Seekle pears; we haTe such names now, but they are much inferior to what they were when the race was in its youth and prime. We notice, In tho proceedings ol the late ses sion of the “Maine Board of Agriculture,” a carefully prepared and able paper, prepared and Tend before it by Calvin Chamberlain, Esq. of Foxcroft, one of the best fruit growers in the State, on the subject of “Apple Orchards.” He seeks to account for the present want of lon gevity in trees, by the climatic changes whioh have followed the removal of our primeval for ests. If this be so, we know not how to account for the fact, that, in tho oldest states, where the adverse climatic changes, inconsequence of the clearing away ol the forests, must have pro duced their effects upon the trees before the late wonderfully prolific orchards were’planted, no such effects were kuown. It is within tho period of the last ten or fifteen years, that the fatality complained of has happened, and this as extcus.vely in old as in new regions of coun try. Are the apple orchards of I iscataquis county, which is comparatively a new county, less afflicted with disease than they aro in old York county? That a change of climate, trom some cause, may have produced the disease, is very probable, but that this change has occur red in consequence of grounds being more open to the sun and air than formerly, is a matter of some doubt. Moreover, it is worthy of remark, that in some of the old towns, there are more foreet lands now than there were fifty yean ago. Mr. C’s other theory, that the soils of the old er farms differ from their original eloment ary condition, is doubtless true of such portions of the farm as have been ploughed and cropped much; hut what should have changed the ele mentary condition on orchard lands and other portions not cultivated is not so easily conceiv able. dho following is entitled to attention: lAi^ES* *lleu careful farmer ha 1 nually diewtthe°trUUr‘Cty’i“0‘l‘ wl*ich ho an orchards. Manv ?,r n°r thc doctetisiou of Ins understood that Wed9 tik!n~f°Ur ftthers'w, 11 were much more likely <*otco appks than seeds from the nlnill'.'u ltu,t In otr boyhood days^ftt “ V‘,Jor uji;i the seeds from the grafted ar,?.iJa'JPh* to 'avu Ishcd so well. I’liese seeds wire Ut ne o’" UDd frozen, and planted in earl/S^^™^ ii ttie act of pat us inking paid welf ititny or chards have been thus produced where a uoor apple could rarely be fouud. r There is truth iu this suggestion,—wore than some persons suppose. It is a law of nature, that liko should begot like, not only in specie i. but often in the several varieties under tho species. Seeds from good apples, will, as a gen eral rule, produce better fruit, than seeds fro.u crabbed ones. And the stocks of such are holier t* graft upon. Twenty-five years ago. wo plant -t a garden bed with ,-eeds ot the Tailman 8w,o. iog. Two years after, wo removed tho seod liugs to a nursery ground,—trimming the rooti as carefully as we trimmed the tops, which is an important desideratum, as it is as impor tant to have properly shaped roots as it i^ sym metrical tops,-setting them out in rows tinoo feet apart and sixteen inches apart in tho rows, thus enabling tho trees to havo room enough to ripen their wood iu the sun and ait. and to spread their branches aright. Iw > yeurs after, wo engrafted tho whole number with various kinds of scions. In most cases, if turned out, when tho trees came to bcurinrr, that the kinds were a decided improvement on those generally in the market, v hich we at tributed to the tact that the stocks partook somewhat of tho sacohariao character of tho fruit whose seeds were planted. For it is a fact that the stock does atfect the fruit borne by the scion inserted in it. The sour apples were not so sour as those grown on ci ubb d stocks, and the sweet were more saccbaxiuo than some others of the same kind grown on other trees. Orchards of ungrafted trees rais ed from sweet apple seed, will bo very likely to produce many kinds of good native fruit. Ti e following advice is good: Let no man attempt to raise an orchard till he is ready to give his trees that caro he kuews to bo requisite to produce a crop of corn or potatoes. The apple tree now must have Cure in all its stages, from the planted seed to the mature tree, yioldiug iu leu b.irrela of l'ruit. -Now that we see and feel the necessity tor renewed eifort to restore tho sad decline in our orchard products,the inquiry arises: "What of our varied soils will, and what will not sustain orchards?" The soil ot our State is considered us "drift”—not being foriuod from the decay or disintegration of iho underlying rock. Its character is not .judged from the nature of that rook, which is rarely seen to modify too superincumbent soil to any considerable de gree. In tho immediate valleys of some of our rivers, orchards have suffered mure from hard winters than those located on the hills.— Wnether this effect proceeds mostly from the greater extremes of rempeiaturo iu such lo calities, or from the soil, is left in obscurity.— We find occasionally a man sueccediug in growing applesiu what app.ar tube the most unfavorable localities, \i ith such facts betoro us, we arc at present forced to conclude that there is but little laud iu the prcseiu settled portion of the btuto that is not BUsOep-ible of growing apples, liefereute heio 10 successiul results in culture uray bo morn appropriate thau extended theory, in tho brief space abet ted to this article, beside being more to our taste. Mr. Chamberlain concludes Ills report with the following timely and sensiblo rcmaiks: Fortunately, there artLbut Hw n— «r"» t* UfOttxvtrxrTT TvnrJ*orOfilQlii^ a Cllar actor as in tho case above. Vet many orchard* have gone to early decay byrea on of excessive wetness in the soil on which ihcy weio pbaa ed. These casos occur as often on the most el evated sites as in the valleys. In leaving tho subject, wo will add a few words on tue/orm ot an upple tree. Yiio prac tice has been to trim thorn with a t.una of u.x or oiglit feet. There are conveniences in tins method. Tho cultivation can bo performed more entirely with a team. Xt is very oanveu ient to shoulder a basket of apples under I ho tree, with a freedom to carry it in any direc tion through the orchard. This form may st.il do very well in locations sheltered from p.e vailing wiucls. But as the country lias oocurao more open and bleak, tho stem ot tho tree should be shortened. We would rather sen it only one foot long than five or seven. To al low for this form, the trees should not beset nearer than iweuty-five leet. Xnirty-threo or forty would bo better. When trees become larger, and tho hand la bor in their cultivation too troublesome, a plat ot grass may be allowed to occupy the space immediately around tho tree, aud ail tho space open to tbo movement of a leant cont .naed in cultivation. The grass plat may bo top-uross ed or mulched', but the lertilizsrsapplied in the cultivable area would be just where to most benefit the trees. It would add to the value ot orchards, (as well as to the value and beauty of lioinesleads, aud OI the country at large) to plant screens on their northerly side, ban encircling them. For such a purpose, a mixture ol evergreen aud deciduous trees would be best; selecting those most valuable for timber, such us the pine, hickory and oak. We would advise tho planting of the Siberi an Yellow Crab, as nursery stock for localities where orchards have not succeeded. Tbis is an extremely hardy tree, takes u firm bold ot the soil with vastly more root than the com mon apple. It is a rapiu grower when young. If it does not attain to so great size, wo think no harm will come iruin using it as a standard to graft upon in the orchard. Tbaxi. Anecdote of Senator Fessenden The Cincinnati correspondent of tho New York Commercial Advertiser tells tho follow ing characteristic anecdote of Hon. Wm. F. Fessenden, which besides paying a deserved compliment to his personal sagacity aud cour age,conveys a lesson by which contra:ted minds every whero may profit: I shall never forget the day I firs» saw him (Fessenden) in tho railroad meeting at Port land in 1861. That city was then intensified upon two subjeots,—one—totalabstineuce—tho other, tho Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad; the entire body of citizens was alive to servo God aud Mammon in this way ot uniting bu-i ness and morality. The meeting was largo, the report on the railroad was retd, and it ap peared that tho Railroad had as a corporation contributed a little, aud was about tocontrib uta more toward ere,ting tho "White Mountain House," an elegaur mansion and summer resort, in tho State ol New Hampshire, just across the Stat: liue of Maine As quick as the report was read, a teetotaller jumped up aud moved a resolution that the doings of the directors be approved; “provided no '.ijuur or other intoxicating drink be cold at the hotel."— Here was a pretty fix I The Portland peopla had bled freely for the railroad—that was patriotism; but they wore also iuoxoriably for temperance—that was their religion; God ami Mammon again in conflict. a young, in no ugurc now arose—rue new Senator of Maine—and in a few words of irony and sarcasm laid bare tho ineffable stupidity of the proposition. How it attempted to enforce Maine faw in Sew Hampshire, and to impose restraints at a place of fashionable resort upon the rest ot mankind; how narrow the view was which prompted the proviso, and how ridiculous this mixing of the temperance hob by with the railroad was. He said: ‘ Even tho best thing may become nauseating if offer, d at every occasion, and that temperance, if it intruded in such business meetings, as well as in Church aud State, would disgust men, in stead of attract them.” A former Governor of Maine, and Congressman, a Democrat, stood beside me, and I remarked to him: “Thcro is the man of courage and good sense who will yet occupy the highest place in the gift of your State." My predictions soon became trup, and I saw Mr. Feist-tiden rise higher and higher, and l was glad to see it, for be always exhibihed the moderation of the statesman. His speech late ly shows that on the tariff, on tho relations of Congress to the President, and ou tho recon struction question, ho will have tho Cour :g. to tell his own party when it descends to the ridic ulous, the bigoted and the upjnst. Such men do much to redeem the lawmakers of our land from contempt An Actouutdaiiai Party* It will not bo long before the Democratic party will be sedition ly cultivating the vote of tue negroes. The SoutUers politicians already are putting themselves in a position to win it. Gov. Orr, of South Carolina, and Gov. Brown, of Georgia, have both declared them elves in favor ol accepting negro uffiage; a« inev itable, to be sure, and yet they hope to win iho confl once of the color, d people W this early advocacy of their right, wo have no olilc - tion.
