A brief review of the Provincial papers re ceived at this office during the past week, has afforded the following synopsis of more or less Interest. COWFEDEBAPION. Tire Toronto Globe, an ardent supporter of Confederation, has a long and severe article condemnatory of the course of the Confed eration Commissioners now in London. It accuses them of consenting to very unjust and injurious changes in the Quebec scheme oi Confederation, making the bill passed by the Imperial Parliament a very different thing from the plan agreed upon at Quebec, and which had received the sanction of the Provincial legislature!! The Globe. complains that “the maintenance and man ‘■agement of penetentiaries, of marine hos pitals, and of seacoast and inland fisheries, “which, under the Quebec scheme were spe cially assigned to the Provincial governments “and legislatures, have been by the Imperial “Act handed hack to the exclusive control of “the Federal authorities; that the power “committed to the local authorities by the “Quebec scheme to make provision for all lc “cal works—for the local advancement of “agriculture, and for the local promotion of “immigration—has by the Imi>erial Act been “placed in subjection to the action of the “Federal Government and Parliament, which “are clothed with supreme power over all “works and undertakings in all or any of the “Provinces, and over everything affecting “agriculture and immigration.” The Globe insists that the good reason for putting these matters under local control in the Que bec scheme, was to put an end to scandalous abuses, and says‘•tlieir reckless and unauthor ized restoration to Federal control is calcu “lated to entail in the future the same scanda ious scenes of scrambling for local advan tages, and of buying local popularity by lo “eal jobs that have been witnessed in the “past.” The greatest act of injustice in the changes made in the Quebec scheme, the Globe claims, is that growing out of the distribution of the local subsidies—money distributed from the common treasury among the local govern ments. On this point the editor deliveis him self as follows: According to the presont estimated popula tion of the several Provinces, the annual subsi dies are to be distributed by the Imperial Act in the following most unjust fashion: Population. Per head. Upper Canada 1,802,051! GO cents 1 Lower Canada 1,288,880 74 cents! Nova Scotia 368,782 107 cents! New Brunswick 295,084 125 cents! The thing is so preposterously unjust that wo are amazed how any one could have the audacity to propose it, much less the folly to coucede it. Only think of it! The burden thrown by these gentlemen in London on the Federal Exchequer—over and above what was settled in Quebec to be amply sufficient for all local purposes—is the enormous sum of 8447, 008 a year—or the annual interest on nine hun dred millions of dollars! A special dispatch from Montreal to the Quebec Chronicle says,; “the full textof the "Coniederation Bill in the Globe is received “this morning, and creates much interest and “is generally approved of.” The St. John Globe, anti-confederation' contains the long and able memorial of the Nova Scotia delegates to Lord Camavan, in opposition to forcing a union of the maratime provinces with Canada, which. discusses at length the question of forced unions, showing their evil tendencies, and specially showing the injustice of the Quebec sehomc. Refer ing to the proposition made in the U. S. Con gress lo admit the lower provinces as States of the American Union, the memorialists say: The terms offered to the maritime provinces are far more liberal than those grudgingly yielded by the Canadians. Let us contrast them. By General Bank’s Bill Nova Scotia would, at once, secure free trade with thirty four millions of people, whose markets are ac cessible at all seasons, instead of with three millions, who are frozen up for half the year, and in the summer can bo got at ouly by a long tedious river navigation. They would participate in the American fishing bounties, so long as these last. They would secure pro tection abroad, which the Canadians cannot givo them. Capital would flow in from Bos ton and New York, to work their mines and employ their water power. Canada has none to spare. Turning from material to political interests, how would matters stand? Nova Scotia would enter the Union as a State, clothed with the accustomed rights and guard ed by recognized securities. She would select her own governors, judges and senators, un controlled by any Federal authority. All these, by the Quebec scheme, are to be select ed tor her by the ruling parties at Ottawa.— We trust wc have said enough to show that, as compared with GeD. Banks’s Bill, the temp tation held out by these schemes at Quebec are “poor indeed.” It may be said, “Aye, but you will have to surrender your custom’s rev enues to the general government.” What matter? The Canadians are to take all but 80 per cent, per head. We shall not be much worse oft' when tho balance has been taken.— “But then you must bear the heavy taxes of the United States.” True; but the taxes will be reduced as the debt comes down, and in twenty years it will be reduced one half by the natural increase of the population. In the meantime we shall enjoy protection which the Canadians cannot give us. The memorialists in conclusion say: We have thus, my Lord, simply stated the case as presented us by General Banks and the Quebec Convention. With all the tempta tions offered us at Washington, we ask sim ply to be let aloue, or we ask to be folded to our mother’s bosom, and not be cast out into the wilderness of untried experience and polit ical speculation. Nova Scotia says to England as Kuth said to Naomi, ‘‘Where you go we will go; your people shall be our people.” This love and affection spring ftom a thousand sources that we need not linger to describe, but which it would be a fatal mistake to sup posed can ever be transferred, You cannot en dorse our hearts or our allegiance over to the Canadas as you would a note of hand, or in vest a village on the Ottawa with the historic interests and association that cluster around London. The Glohe editorially says, in commenting upon this memorial: Let us hope that the warnings uttered by these gentlemen will have their due effect, anu that we will be spared in this enlightened quarter of the world the melancholy spectacle of seeing a tree people forced into a connec tion they detest. In offset to this blast against Confederation, we give the opening paragraph of a leader in the St. John Morning Journal of the 22d ult: ttTho details of the modifications of the Que bec Scheme agreed upon in the convention in London, which we published on Wednesday, and the telegram received on the forenoon of that day, intimatiug the triumphant progress of the bill in Parliament, have produced the liveliest feelings of satisfaction in this commu nity. We find that great importance is at tached to the influential position in the Senate, which will be secured in the Maritime Provin ces, and while it is only just and equitable that it should be so, the. fairness and the statesman ship ot the Canadian delegates, whose powers were not so extensive as those of the delegates from the Maritime Provinces, are freely ad mitted. The Montreal Witness, leferring to the ar ticle in the Toronto Glohe from which we have copied above, under the head of “Con federation n<it what was Expected,” says: We sympathise deeply with the Globe in the sore disappointment it feels at the changes that have been made at the eleventh hour in the Quebec scheme of Coufederatiou. Some of these, as it s'rows, are for the better, but most of them, it thiuks, greatly for the worse, and especially unjust to Canada West. On this latter point lie is perfectly correct. Cana da West, the only province which has been heartily for Confederation, first and last, and which may be called, if not the author of the scheme, at all events its chief promoter, is wiih singular unkindness wronged in a varie ty of points by the changes made in Loudon with the sanction of her own delegates, Messrs McDonald, McDougal, and Howland. The ed itor of the Globe's great object from first to last was to exclude the French Canadians of Lower Canada from any share in the man agement of the local affairs of Upper Canada, and to keep their hands out of the pockets of the Upper Canadian people; and, to attain this, he cared not what became of the En glish speaking population of Lower Canada. But these aspirations, for which he sacrificed so much, and made others sacrifice so much, have been disappointed,—and the log-rolling and jobbing, which has had such a disastrous effect on the Canadian legislation and Cana dian finances, is to be continued,—doubtless to the great satisfaction of all the trading politi cian class. KEFOT5M. Like the parent government Canada is and long has been agitated by questions of reform, the principal of which is that relating to the basis of representation in the provincial parli ament. At present representation is not bas ed on population,but the Eastern and West ern divisions of the Province are allowed equal political power in parliament, notwith standing the population of Canada West is largely in excess of Canada East. The To ronto Globe has long labored to correct this evil, and succeeded in creating a strong refoi m party, but under the lead of the present At torney General, Hon. John A. Macdonald of Kingston, opposition to this reasonable meas ure lias been kept up even in Canada West, sutiicient to checkmate ail efforts to give it practical success. Now that, by the Imperial Act providing (or Conlederation. the principle clamored for by the ‘’Reformers'’ has been at least partial ly recognized, the reform party are organizing to defeat the ambitious aspirations of those who have hithertodefeated them, and to place the administration of affairs in the hands of t e friends of reform. To show the spirit and bitterness with which the con test is waged we quote (torn the Sarnia Ob server: Reformers have an imperative duty imposed upon them by the connection of . with the past. This is a connection which lihe Tories would no doubt gladly obliterate if they could. Oblivion of the past mS?' grateful to a party which so far has been al ways in the wrong, and which has always been obliged to succumb and see Reform measeres carried out—even when it lias mean ly endeavored to lighten the blow to its pres tige: by stealing and passing those measures which it bad opposed for years. Tory orators and writers now glibly and hypocritically prate about “those unfortunate sectional dif ferences" which have so long distracted Can ada. What were these (inferences, we should like to ask? Were they not In a general way founded on this one great grievance, viz.: the denial to Upper Canada of an influence in the Government proportional to her population and the amount contributed by her to the Pro vincial chest? We scarcely recollect of any complaints of injustice preferred by Lower Canada; the, injustice was so palpably the other way that such could not have been maintained with gravity of face before the Legislature. The differences are said now to lie settled, and how? Why, by conceding to Upper Canada in substance just what Reform ers have so long struggled for, and which was so long and obstinately refused to be conceueu. Ana now aia tne struggle come to be so protracted? Was it the opposition of Lower Canada alone that did it? No, indeed! it was that traitorous lew amongst us, who on this question followed the lead of Mr. John A. Macdonald, that arch betrayer ofUpjter Cana dian interests, that held the balance against ns, and protracted and embittered the struggle. It is less upon Lower Canadians, who we may say only iought for their own, than upon Up per Canadian traitors to homo interests, that our reprobation must rest. And now when the battle has been fought and the victory won, when that hated principle of Represen tation by Population, which the Attorney Gen eral again and again declared to la; so totally subversive of Biitish constitutional Government that he would never assent to it, hus been carr.ed, witli the approval, be it re membered, of a British Conservative Govern ment—we are coolly asked to shake bauds and be friends, and have no more party differences. We venture to say that tho great body of the people in Upper Canada will not so judge, and that the men who have sacrificed our interests in the past are not to lie chosen to look after our interests in th e future. Our people will, we believe, refuse to reward Tory politiciau for services rendered against Upper Canada. The past will not so readily la; forgotten as those renegades to the trust reposed in them affect to believe. On the same subject the IngersoU Chronicle holds this language: The prospect that Confederation will be car ried in a few weeks is so great as almost to amount to a certainty, and we naturally be think ourselves of the elections to follow.— There will, if Confederation be successful, be two elections, one for members of the Federal and another for members of the Local Parlia ment. The Federal elections, however, will come first, and we may bo in the midst of that struggle in a very few weeks. That will be the fiercest struggle ot the two, because it will to some extent determine tho character of most of the doubtful constituencies. Besides, it is a foregone conclusion that the Reform party will control the Local Parliament of Upper Cana da, and our opponents will not make so hard a fight over that as they will over the Federal Parliament. * • • Tho triumph of Reform principles which is involv ed in the success of Confederation is some thing of which Reformers may well bo proud. It will not soon be forgotten under what dis couraging circumstances Reformers hare toil ed for years in order to obtain Representation by Population; and when at last victory is with us, we need but little argument to induce us to stand by our colors. When there seem ed the least prospect of success, few of our party fell away, aud it is not likely that those who stood firm under difficulties and defeats are going to desert in the hour of success.— Besides the preatige which the triumph of Rep resentation by Population is sure to give the Reformers as a party, the redistribution of seats in Upper Canada must be another advan tage. In place of 65 members, Upper Canada will hereafter elect 82 representatives, and we ought to elect by a larger majority under the new than under the old arrangement ot con stituencies. One paragraph from the Brockville Re corder shall suffice under this head: The present is the commencement of a now era in the political world ot Canada. There is a prize to win, and we trust some little exer tion will be made to win it. With no friends in court, the party is powerless. John A.’s suckers are still hovering round, ready to catch and gobble up office at all hazards. No new appointments, however, ought to be made till the new Parliament meets. Then the bat tle will have been fought, and the Administra tion be in a position to deal with vacancies ina more honorable and independent spirit. An honest Administration would act thus, al though such we cannot boast of at the present time. MADOC GOLD MIKES. The Globe'a correspondence from the gold region of Madoc, some sixty miles from Kingston and thirty from the line of the G. T. railroad, gives a glowing account of the prospects for rich digging, and says: The report of Mr. Michel on the gold regions of Madoc, will dissipate the doubts of those who were not disposed to believe that gold ex isted hero, and will help to confirm the belief of those who from the first have been satisfied that a new El Dorado had been discovered, which would equal in richness those of Cali fornia, of British Columbia, or ol Australia. That report was based upon observations made some two months since, and must be consider ed exceedingly favorable; but if Mr. Michel were to revisit the gold region now, I am cer tain from the developments that have been made since, he would be satisfied that the ‘ successful results” he anticipated from further explorations, would be more than realized. MISCELLANEOUS. The salt well at Goderich, on Lake Huron, alter a brief stoppage, has been started with better results than ever. The brine is said to lie the iiest known on the continent, produc ing salt of the purest and whitest quality. The brine as it conies from the well is suffici ently strong and pure to be used for curing beef and pork. The oil wells of Botliwell are nearly all shut down, and at Petrolia, where the yield may be increased to almost any extent, crude oil is quoted at from 75 cents to $1 per barrel, with little demand at these low figures. The Government buildings at Ottawa are being arranged to meet the new demands to be made upon their accommodations by tbe expected speedy consummation of tbe Con federation scheme. The Canada papers record a full share of “horrible outrages,” showing that the gallows, which retgns there in all its vigor and tear inspiring terrors, does not prevent the frequent outbursts of murderous passion any more than tbe milder regime wbich obtains in Michigan on one side and Maine en tlie other. The Rolling Mill at Toronto is about pass ing under the ownership of the G. T. Railway Company. It is hoped when the Company get lull control of the works they will have fewer accidents in consequence of defective rails. William O. Browulaw. Tin re are probably very few persons ol re fined taste who would not find much to except to in the speeches and writings of the distin guished gentleman whose uamc we have placed at the head of this article. Of invec tive he is a perfect master; in bitterness his soul is not deficient; of intense, burning ha tred of enemies he is perhaps justly suspect ed. At any rate, he will never be likely to sutler martyrdom for his love of enemies, while the coals of fire that he would heap up on their heads, would not be half so likely to melt and purify as to burn and blister tbe souls of those thus scripturally baptized. But while saying thus much adverse to tlie Governor of the first reconstructed rel>el State, it should not be forgotten that he has passed through an ordeal such as few men have been subjected to, and that it he hates rebels and traitors he does not do so without excuse. Another Tennessee gentleman, oc cupying high official position, has often boast ed of what he suffered for his country, an while “swinging around tbe circle in his fa tal electioneering campaign last fall, he never failed to bold himself up as one who had suf fered more than any other man for his devo tion to liberty and law; but tbe suffering of this latter gentleman seems always to have been attended with perfect personal liberty, with jierfect freedom from personal Injury, and with a cash salary by no means to be de spised tor its narrowness or lack of sustain ing power. Not so with Mr. Brownlow. From the bosom of his family he was insultingly and roughly torn by rebel enemies, thrown into a dirty and loathsome prison, subjected to in conceivable indignities, and daily and hourly exposed to a revolting death, Irom which evils and dangers he was telieved only to suffer ex patriation, to be thrust out from the home of his choice, and to find his friends and a refuge among strangers. But it is of what Wii.liam G. Browniaw has done for the Union cause, to restore h i Sate to her normal condition in the Unit a, to make her a free, liberty-defending, demo cratic State, and to place her in harmony with the genius of our institutions and the spirit of tho age, that we would speak at the present time. That much is due to his personal efforts and his indomitable will in producing the graud results achieved iu his State, no one can doubt. He has proved a man of iron will to do what Andrew Johnson promised; to become both the Moses and tha Joshua to a down-trodnen and oppressed race to whom “a. J.” proposed to be a Moses but to whom he only proved a Pharaoh. Suppose Andrew Johnson instead of Mr. Bbowni.ow had been the Governor of Tennessee, and had occupied that position for the last two years, who believes Tennessee to-day wtu’d be a re stored State m the Union, that her freedom loving representatives would occupy seats in the national Congress, and above all that the loyal negroes of the State would now bo clothed with all the rights of American citi zens! To Governor Bbowxi.ow is due a large debt of gratitude from every loyal heart for what he has done and what his State has be come. He is one of the few men ot the South who have tully “conquered their prejudices,’’ and accepted the doctrine of the Declaration of Independence in all Its logical results.— He isa tiue man, impetuous but honest; hot headed, but clear in his head as he is hot; im placable in his hatred but faithful to his frieuds and the right; the deadly enemy of treason and traitors but the true Iriend ot tho poor and unfortunate; coarse in s| leech, if you pleace, but as forcible and truthful as he is coarse; apparently vindictive towards ene mies but as tender as a woman where pity is not weakness and forgiveness does not cease to be a virtue. All honor, then, to William G. Brown low. Had his spirit and will been exhibited in the Executive chair of the nation—his in flexible loyalty and determined purpose to make treason odious and Unionism and liber ty respectable—how different to-day would Iks the condition of the South! What he has done for one State might have been done for eleven States, and the national Congress, no longer vexed with questions of reconstruc tion, and composed of delegates fro* a part of the States only, would be composed of full delegations from all the States, laboring with concentrated purpose to promote the material prosperity of the nation, and to make liberty and law, justice and equal rights the univer sal rule of action. Aa 014 N|raai>h City. g A correspondent of the Hartford Evening Press very pleasantly describes some of tho external characteristics of the old Moorish town of Cordova: The streets of Cordova are just wide enough to admit of a person on oaoh side, and a don key in the middle; but if the donkey has his panniers on, man or beast must stop till the other has advanced. When the water-carriers pass, with thirteen little kegs tied in an un comfortable manner about one mule’s body, there is do resort for pedestrians except tho door-ways ot the houses, and ho is dextrous who always secures this retreat. The houses themselves are like those everywhere in the south of Spain, presenting no decorations of any kind to the street—only whitewashed wall and dark windows crossed by iron bars. In toe principal piazzas we find, perhaps, balcon ies, but they are an innovation upon Spanish architecture. The street door invariably opens into a court, and around the court you will find the front of the house. Beautiful'en trances and porticos, pillars and balconies, statues and fountains, and not uncommonly, frescoes will ornament the wal s; whfle even the poorest house will have its clean-swept pavement, its oleanders, palms and orange grove. The coutt is as much a part of the home as the apartment itself; a place to be enjoyed in the heat of summer, where the sun and tho noise are alike shut out. There is something that strikes one as decidedly sensible in the taste which makes the habitable portion of the house the most beautiful, and that does not decorate front walls for the passer in the street, while the back-yard, where tho children play, is left desolate and neglected. A little stroll through the streets—where, as everywhere in Spain, the staring of the people indicates how unusual is travel in that vicin ity., and the traveller is regarded as an object of curiosity and amusement — and we find ourselves within the market-place. To readers of Don Quixote it is an intercst lng spot, and tho compass of a book would hardly suffico for its description. ’Tis an im mense square, surrounded entirely by high buildings, where the balconies, that originally were crowded with the fairest dames and dam sels of Cordova, gathered to see the entertain ments of all kinds for which the place was re nowned, are thronged with unwashed children or hung with dirty clothes. There is left ono little path for the water carriers, and the mules that Dear away the refuse of the markets.— .fvsiae irom tms tne wnolc ground is cov ere<! with the wares of the sellers—and I es pied many a little group, that would have been, indeed, a stndyfor a painter. An old woman with her snuff-box aud her knitting, set iu a frame of blue and yellow crockery; both herself and the eurtheii-waro distributed in the most picturesque, if not in most artistic manner. Pomegranates vied with sweet potatoes, and great piles of oranges lit up with gold a mosaic of onions, figs and vegetables. To reach any special point you must thread very earefully, winding in aud out with dexterous skill and careTlest some unfortunate move sweep aside some of the pos sessions, and you be instantly assailed with a torrent of Hugo decidedly sharpened to your eais. Even a foreigner can detect the tone of abuse from petition! Over each little patch sways the great straw covering, supported on sticks, and a great cotton umbrella ot various hues, (particularly red—a color in which they delight), makes a protection over vegetables, or a tent for repose. Leaving aside (ho beggars, less numerous here than about the mosque, it was such a picture of lazy luxury, of poverty sweetened by contentment as is rarely seeu. The Abaltwlrs ofEVrn York. The New York Evening Poet contains a de scription of the ucw abattoirs, three of which are now nearly completed in that city, and by means of which it is hoped that the many evil effects arising from slaughter-houses, as at present conducted, lying within the city limits, may be to a great extent obviated. The new system, wliicb has been most success fully put in practice in some of the best regu lated cities of Europe, and especially in Paris, is at present attracting deserved attention iu New York. The Post remarks; The difference between a slaughter-house and an abattoir is very grest. An abattoir re ceives within its enclosure the live animal, and sends forth nothing but the meat; all the rest is retained, and is either preserved or utilized • and this is effected so promptly and thorough ly as to cause no offensive odors—certainly none that are allowed to escape in the external air. A slaugiitcr-houfte, on the other hand, la a distributor of bad odors; a place where the an lnaal is killed, and from which are sent forth all the parts tor humau food to the market, th« hide to the currier or tanner, the fat to the tal low Tenderer or chandler, the feet to the glue manufacturer, the bones to the button mann iacturer or the manure maker, ihe entrails to Uie offal dock, the blood to the sugar refiner, &c., &c. A slaughter-house is, in short, a dis tributer of unpleasant odors, polluting the air throughout the entire circle of its influence. These various substances are usually carted from these slaughter pens through the streets of the city to different and widely distant parts of the city, and each in turn becomes a nuis ance and ground of complaint in the various* modifications through which these subst c pass. . . . „ The advantages of a 1'T »hlc.h •*>' these evil, are avoided need ^ out Through i W moan, » ■» ^Heved tha‘ th" ' ", * ..hundred slaughter-houses now work oft e ‘ a)] be disposed of in eYiat nir in the city «■«**." r the new establishment, going up.
