Tlio topics of political discussion continue to be, as heretofore, Confederation—now a foregone conclusion—and Reform, the |;ilt01. consisting practically in organizing lor pur poses of union, strength and concert of action’ tlie friends of represents ‘on based on popula tion. But the discussions are exceedingly de void ol interest to outside readers. The Toronto Globe,under theliead of “Yan kee Impertinence,” pitches intothe resolution ol Gen. Banks, passed by the House the oth er day, in relation to the Confederation of the Provinces. An Ottawa correspondent of the Globe learns on good authority that another large nugget, weighing4lbs., 2oz., lbdwts., and 22 grs., estimated value $900, was taken out of a shaft on the left bank of the Gilbcit river, Chaudiere, on the 21st instant. The (}. R. Railway is to be attended to.— Eight thousand tons of fish-jointed rails have l>een ordered from England to be used on the eastern section. Those tor the western will be obtained from the Rolling Mills, Toronto. -The wile of Arthur Stewart, a respectable farmer, committed suicide in Chatham, by poison, a tew days since white laboring under temporary insanity. me jury m me ease ot tbe recent fatal rail voa.i accident near Woodstock, on the G. \Y. road, in tbeir verdict give tlie opinion tbal "il Princeton had been a regular telegraph sta tion, the blue line special and the emigrant tram would have been shunted [switched ott'j at that station to allow tbe night uiaii to past) and thus have avoided this accident."’ Another discovery of gold has been made— , not in the Township ot'Madoc, but still with in some live miles of the village—which, it it turns cut to be what is represented, and to answer the expectations raised, will prove to he quite as great, an attraction a, the real original Richardson Mine itself. The Loudon Fret Frets says all is quiet on thefrontier, and the reports of Fenian expe ditions, bom New York, are believed to be pure inventions. Tbe Free-Few* says: Messrs. F.G. Beckett & Co., of Hamilton, are at present engaged in erecting Some enor mous non tanks to held crude m-lrolc.niii, at tile Railway fetation, Pettolia. 'they have al ready constructed one to hold 5,( *l battels and are engaged on a larger one, to held lti.lW bar rels! the dimensions of this are 67 feet a.r.. and 32 loot high.

CANADA CAST. Tlie church is not behind the worid in point of sharpness in financial matters. A Montreal paper says the Bishop of Montreal has issued a circular, counselling tlie clergy to exact the discount on paymepts ,",i silver lor all dues loyiririqtics audchurches, as is done in all the othei great bodies of tlie State, in some parishes measures have already been taken in consequence, and church wardens have been notified that they are to charge the discount, or he held responsible tor it. This discount applies to American and English Gi ver, Canadian silver alone being exempt, and yet there is not enough of fhe latter in circu lation to pay postages. This discount busi ness, as may be easily shown, creates and stimulates the very evil it is intended to avoid. Trie dead calm 01 Isnirivs-rii t-nr of the province is being broken, and political aspirations seem to have lieen quickened into activity by the prospects of Confederation. The Quebec Chronicle says: At present there is a very perceptible stir in that portion of the political world embraced in Lower Canada. W hatever results may How from Confederation, a declining interest in pol itics does not appear likoly to bo among them. On the contrary, a new born anxiety to enter public life is being daily manifested,even by punies whose names were never heard of be fore. Thu Quebec Chronicle styles Mr. Chandler, of Michigan, the Fa'staT of the American Senate. The cholera has broken out in the Island of Jersey with virulence. Out of eleven cases of attack ten had proved fatal. As there are ships loading at the Island for Gaspe, and probably some lor Quebec, the Chronicle hopes the government will take prompt and efficient steps to ensure the en forcement of the strictest system of quaran tine from the opening of navigation. A correspondent ot the Montreal M itaess, who signs himself ‘ A Roman Catholic.'’ ,n qnircs why it is that in Maine, New Hamp shire and Vermont, where the climate is not unlike that of Canada, the soil not so good and the government inferior, (!) the farmers and others should do so much better than on the British side. ITe then adds: Tin's, sir, I believe is the key to the mystery, —the British, in an evil hour, granted to Low - ar Canada a Roman Catholic hierarchy. Thnt'x whut's the matter! Let us have no more priest craft, no more superstition, and, consequently, no more bigotry. Give us the Divine Word without note or comment; and, while we be come true Christians, we will improve our con dition morally, intellectually, and socially. Says the 1177ness of Montreal: The three heads of the Cerberus that is now harking at the British Government are Ritual ism, Reform, and Fenianisin. The first do, i not appear to us a public question at all. It should be settled by and for the chinch or churches in which it makes its appearance. Parliaments and courts of law should liavo nothing to do with it. Baron Ricasoii’s recipe should be applied to it,—“A iree Church in a free State.” Reform belongs especially to the people, and the prospect is that its clamors will be heard to some extent. Of Fenianlsm it may be said that, so far, its bark is much worse than its bite. It has, however, sncceeiled in spreading alarm through a considerable por tion ot'lreland and Canada,and putting tbs British Government to a great expense. NEW BRUNSWICK. Tlie St. John Globe has a long leader urg ing the importance of some measures to en courage immigration into that province. The St. Joint Globe publishes Goldwiti Smith's long letter on British Colonial Con federation, and urging that it should not Sc put in force unless first approved by a popular vote of the provinces to lie ailijeted by it. The St John Morning Journal speaks of a funeral iu that city which was largely and in Jluevlinllg attended! NOVA SCOTIA. The address in reply to His Excellency's speech on opening the session, which approves of the steps taken to secure a union of (lie colonics, passed the Nova Scotti Assembly. The Assembly approved of the Union hill by a vote of lldrty-two to sixteen. The oppo nents of Confederation moved an amendment to the address, in the following terms, hut failed to make their opposition effectual: We regret that, we are unable to perceive any grounds whereon to reciprocate Yum Ex celieuey's congratulation upon the assumed success of the Delegates emu missioned bv Your Excellency under the resolution of this House to confer with Her Majesty’s Govern ment on the subject of the U uiou of the Colo nies. On behalf of the free people of Nova Scotia, we would respectfully submit that in relation to that question, the present is, in our opinion, a most important crisis in the history ot this Province, unit imperatively demands the exer cise of the wisest discretion in I lie administra tion of its public n flairs. Thus firmly iinprc.- e ed, we deem it to lie our duty to enure vto Your Excellency our solemn protest against tlio ac tion of the delegates referred to, and ui >st dut tinctly to claim aud demand on bunalt ot Nova Scotia, that no simli measure as that proposed should have any operation iu this Province, until it has been deliberately reviewed by its Legislature, and sanctioned by the people at the polls. The Provincial Secretaiy of Nova Scotia has introduced a bill to prevent persons hav ing seats in the Local Legislature from hold ing seat*in the general Parliament or Senate of Canada. The Halifax Oitt fen has a rumor that oper ations are to be stopped on the military works at the entrance ot the harbor,‘and witho vouunu^ lor its corvee incite,says: ‘ it Hie wort: is .stopped it will only Is* in keeping with the reason* giveti t.y tb,‘ liritirh government for prom. >i>u£ eoiifo.lernti.ii Tint policy ha.-.

The Iltitish steamer Chic.igp, ou hm nseent passage 'join Liverpool to New York, bail a narrow escape from desliaction. tYi.en in mid-ocean she euconuleied aliciii nfica which stove a hole in her bow, and one compart ment was instantly iilleil with water. The engineers were oi upinion that tint bulkhead separating this compartment troiu the re.t of the ship was too weak to slauil the pressure upon it, anil tor some time the situation was critical in the otrireme. .Suou, however, the bulkhead was shored up as strongly as the means available woo'd permit, a tarred sail tv.,.1 lowered so as to cover the* opening in or der to lessen the tone of the water, and by keeping tbe pumps going the oilier portions of the ship remained reasonably tied teem water. An amusing story Is told of a stetrage passen ger, who, 1 laving heard that the officers and crew intended to desert the ship during lire night and leave the passengers to perish, con tinued on deck ail night tot lowing the officers alxMW and offering them money it they would lei himgo into the boats with them, tic was peiicctly wilting liis wile should remain on the ship.

Tlic Pi'niniiH 11 uil,r S'irc The Tribune'll special ooivespomleot at Dublin gives the folio .ring account of the; be havior of the "men in the gap” in the .

American readers will please l*ear in mind that the best part of Ireland is kept al most continuously subject to the operation of "Arms acts,” which make it a crime to keep arms without a license from the Gov. inmeiiL, tlm consequence of which is that Hie peasant ry kuow scarcely any thing of guus and pis tols save what can be learned from seeing them in the hands of the military, the con st.ibnlarv, and the gentry. The Fenians hir e distributed lire-aims to some extent among them bat the possessors were unable to tire a shot out of them until they actually took the field'In open rebellion! Such being the tact, it is easy to guess what sort o! practice they "jpo-u engaged with the constabulary. I.lieir Bring \\rns~~* « «t.n -u-. ..dt> t, Gentlemen who watched the alii ay at Kii uullocK Horn a Hotel wiuuow, suited that the Fenian party did not apptar to be in the slightest degree trouhleil about the l.ulleis coining Irom the con* tabillary; many ot them seemed *o tie more afraid of the guns fla y had in their own hands. Some used to kneel and put the butts of their lilies on tlic ground when discharging them at I he tiai racks, slop ing the weai011s ns infantry do when about so receive a charge oi cavalry; others, when about to tile, instead ot sighting their rifles used to turn away their laces Irom them. In short, there was any amount oi awkwardness among those untrained men; but of iiersnnat intrepidity there was an abundance. Again, it is a positive tact that numbers ot Hie rifle cartridges picked up in the neighbor hood of Tallnght, near this city, were ibuinl on examination to have been wrongly made up, the pointed end of the bullet hen.g turned down to tiie powder. fciueb cartridges were, of course, little better thau useless. As re gards orill, a pniportinn ot tiie men eould probably walk in step and )>ertorm some sim ple evolutions on perodc, but under tire and in company with a number of otheTs who had received no drilling hi all, whatever proflolen ey they had ac |Utred was quite useless to them, and they became simply a crowd. What, could such men do against experienced sol diers or a police force who are an army under another name'/ Lint it may he said they would learn veiy quickly. There is truth in tho remark.— Irishmen are apt scholars in military matters, and if on this occasion the weather had per mitted them to keep to the hills, it is very likely that every man of the insurgents would soon know liow to handle his title, and that iu future conflicts yvhU the soldiery or polite their tiring w ould nut lie quite so innocuous. Another curious tact in connection with these skirmishes remains to be noticed. What the insurgents most dreaded when coming in to conflict with the police was not their rifles and bavouets lor the time being, hut subse quent identification at their hands before the legal tribunals. They would much rather have faced the soldiery titan those blood hounds of the law; aud when the Fenian party at Glcneullen discussed the propriety of shooting the police whom they had made prisoners, it was this consideration that was I urged in favor of the proposition, ‘'ll you don t do it," said some of the party,•‘those fel lows will bo getting every man of you hanged hv-and-by.” For a time It seemed us it this view ol the ca t would prevail. The Feftians determined to shoot them, as a military ne cessity. First, however, they would give them an opportunity of preparing tor Hie next world. A priest whom they had met on their way was present, and they compelled the policemen, who were Catholics, to go to eonto-sion to hint. The compliance of the policemen with this order was perhaps what saved their lives, for mean time ilie sun.ieet was again donated, ami a res olution to spa-e their lives was arrived at, mainly iu consequence of tlie carnet ami in dignant rcmonstrauce of the leader ot the band, who was an Irish American. And here let me remark on the villainous way in which,the English press and theirimi tators in thi.-> country icier to the service which these irlsh-Amerieans have seel in the Federal war. If yon believe their represent ations, tiie I'.imies of the 1 nine were not civ ilized combatants at ail, but were merely a horde of bloodthif.Sy savages, whose opera tions consisted entirely of "rapiue aiid mur der.” I regret that I have not culled from t'nose papers a number of the tlowers oi speech 'which they din'; upon 'In* Federal ar my—upon the forces who carried on a great War with a degree ui chivalry and humunu.v previously all imt unknow n in such opera lions. “We must," they say, "make ex 'luph of those Irish Americans; we mu -t deter from coming into thiscountry those men "hoteve been trained to rapine and slaughter during the American war." “<hir safety is endan gered by the pieseuce among u» ol a gang ol despeiadoe , who have be 11 unfitted mr lion edpiir-uils by yc.us of service ill l uo Anien can1 army, under sueti men' as Hutlcr and Sherman.” “No mercy must he -limvn to the ruffians who, since the disbandment of the Eeileral armies, are swarming over here m the liot«i ol le-uanig the work of pillage and murder to w hich they have send! so good an apprentice!hip."

Charles Sumner intends retiring from the Senate ol the Unit ed States, at the end of his present leim, has no iottidnLion in tact, and was certainly un auLhorued by himself. Although Mr. Stun ner baa beeu iongt* in Hie S. nate than any of its members, except Mr. Wade, who enter ed at the same se-sion, there lias been no tune during the sixteen years ot his eventful Con gressional experience when his withdrawal tri m that body would do more injustice to his own lame, or be more generally deplored by that great American constituency of which in: has been the peculiar representative since Ids entrance into public life, thau the period that will close Andrew Johnson's fa tal Presidency. Mr. Sumner has lived to see nearly every one ot the great truths tor which lie lias contended, and in the maintainauce ot which he nearly lost his iile ou the tloor of the Senate,recognized by the American peo ple and incorporated into the American statute books. And it may justly be said of him, tiiat lie has contributed more to the anti slavery education of tiie millions, and to the strengthening ot the anti-slavery treed, and to the final success ol anti-slavery principles, Ilian any of his illustrious predecessors and cotemporaries. It is true liis opportunities nave beer, great, because Massachusetts, with ailed foliate confidence, has retained him it his Senatorial position, bin he lias also been singularly adapted to these opportunities. A fair calalogue ot Mr. Sumner's labors would astonish the world,particularly since the outbreak of the rebellion. Indeed bis tile has beeu one long intellectual toil. We read that win n scarcely of age he had editor ial cltaige of the Amtrictin -Jurist, and short ly afterward was elected reporterj of the United States Circuit Court, and publish ed time volumes of reports, which bear his name; and he was ior three years a teacher iu the Cambridge Law School, and simulta neously ttie editor of Dunlaps Treatise on Adiuiiaity Practice, and all before lie had en tered upon Ids twenty-eighth year. We read also that during the years of 1844—40 he produced an edition of Vesey’s Reports in twenty volumes, liis writings and speeches ou philanthropic and literary subjects were published iu two volumes iu JSoO. From the jieripil when he entered the Senate ou the 4th ol' March in 1854, until now, he has been one of the most persistent ami conscientious workers, not even excepting Thomas H. Ben ton, that ever sat in a legislative body. While most of his tune bus been giveu to public du ties, no subject has escaped or has been deemed unworthy of his attention. Reading, speaking and writing nearly all the modern languages, he has not been less careful in cul tivating tlte studies of llie ancient poets and philosophers. Nothing relating to art, science or literature, in all their infinite varieties, has been inditl'creutiy regarded, liis Congress ional eilorts, tanging over the whole held of human thought anil oliservation, would con stitute a library of themselves. Dining all this long period of exciting service, Mr. Sum ner has kept prominently in view the duty and the necessity of removing human slavery Irom Hie United States. In more than six teen years there has not been a moment in which he has forgotten this sacred and ehiel obligation. Whether iu the benatc or out of it lie has kept it steadily in view. Neither the attacks of liis enemies nor the doubts of his friends liave induced him to abate one jot of his earnestness or to abandon one iota of Ids creed. . Mr.smmier was bom tn 1S11, and is there fore still comparatively a youo ; man, and yet lie lias lived long enough, as we have said, m see all the truths that lie has advocat ed. accepted by bis country and embodied iu her laws. Much that was denounced as im possible of realization when he lirst proclaim* ed it, has not only become a part of the law, but is Welcomed by hundreds of thousands of former assailants as the only remedy tor the eure of the evils bom of human slavery, there is something in his record, as wrllas the tearless and in .pausing fieweveranee with which he has sustained his doctrines, Hud linds no parallel either in parliamentary or in Congressional history. Many a man lias lived lav beyond the Psalmists age without consummating a tithe of the idossiugs which may he clearly credited to Charles Sumner, belore tie lias reached his titty seventh year.
