The CHINGARORA TOBACCO g ows from the rich soil of the “ORIENT,” and is possessed of a pe culiarly delicious flavoi entirely unknown to the to bacco of all other climes. But its unprecedented popularity has sprung from the fact of the entire ab sence of that deadly poison Nicotin, which permeates every other tobacco, and which is the ono and sole cause of the distressing nervous diseases, dyspepsia, &«*., which most invariably sooner or later, tollow tlie indulgence of the pipe and cigar. At the recent analyzation of tobacco from all parts of the world at the Academy of Sciences, in Paris, the renowned Chemist, M. Lamoubeaux, declared that while Eu-, ropeauand American tobacco contained fully eight per cent., and the purest Havana tobacco from two to five per cent, of Nicotin, the CHINGARORA did not contain one discoverable particle of that deadly poison, a drop of which, extracted, will destroy life. Our Agent at BOMBAY has shipped us large quan tities of the CHINGARORA during the past two years, and although we have been pressed to supply tlio demand lor this delicious luxury to the veteran smoker, yet we are now prepared to offer it in unlim ited quantities, at a price much lower than some American tobacco of a far inferior quality. A connoisseur lias but to smoke the American to bacco and segars, which are invariably chemically flavored, to be disgusted with the medicinal taste which leaves a nauseous, unhealthy coating in the mouth, anil in time seldom fails to shatter the ner vous system. The natives of the “ORIENT” smoke the CHIN GARORA from morn till night, from youth to age, and are happily unconscious of the wild, distressing fire which courses through tJtfj veins of the inhaler of the fumes of tobacco containing Nicotin, We invite every lover of the weed to try the CHIN GARORA, and guarantee unprecedented pleasure in its delicious flavor.

Tuesday Morning, Ap:il 9, 1SC7, Weekly Provluoiul Krrard. Tlie Provincial press lor tlie past week lias had a new subject lor consideration, arid quite as much lor the amusement as lor the insti-ue tion of our readers, we copy some of its re flections upon the m SSIAM AMh'KH'AN TRKATV. Tlie Montreal II t/ness considers the event of tlie year thus tar, the cession ol Russian America to the United States, and adds: This will nut, so far as we ran see, attect British America in any degree, unless it stim ulate the United States to efliirts to eonneet their separate dominions. British Columbia anil \ aneouver Island have about six degrees ot latitude, or 400 miles of coast, including the principal rircrs that fall into the Pacific from the interior, uorth ol tlie Columbia River. An iil-dctiued boundary line may lead to disputes, not only between fur limiters and gold seekers but between the British and American Gov ernment* ; it is, however, needles* to anticipate evil. The H. B. Company will not be jnbilaut over the change of ownership, which will prob ably result in a much keener competition in the fur trade of the region in question. It is, however, to be observed that the United States has never yet sought or accepted the sovereignty of any territory not adjoining its own; and if Russian America is accepted now, that act will inaugurate a change of pokey which will involve the inconvenience of defend ing a distant dependency that Russia is seek ing to get rid of. * The St. John Globe makes this new treaty the occasion of letting fly a shot at John Bull for his reudinness to confederate the colonies. It says: • This cession of territory is one of the most remarkable signs of the times. European Governments do not care about holding land on this continent. France thought the trou bles in the United States afforded her a good opportunity to get a large slice of Mexico, but the war was settled in a way she never expect ed, and she withdrew as quickly as she could. Russia has, it appears, been willing to sell, as soon as she could get a purchaser. Ami it is evident that Great Britian would do the same, She is quite willing that the colonists them selves should be the purchasers; and “run” the country on their own hook. Or they might cuter into a partnership with the United States, and “run” it between them. She would never send a man or fire a gun to prevent it. The Toronto Globe, with evident ill humor, after copying the telegram in relation to tlie treaty, says: The sole object of the United States Govern ment, in striving to obtain possession of Rus sian America, is the miserable advantage sug gested in the above telegram of shutting off the Northern portion of British Columbia from direct access to the Pacific Ocean. The Terri tory ceded, so far as known, is of very little value to anybody. Mount St. Elias lies close to the Pacific coast in the 00th degree of north latitude; and lrom that point a mere strip of Russian territory runs down some 400 miles along the coast to Fort Simpsoif} and immedi ately opposite Queen Charlotte’s Island—cut ting oft British Columbia from the Pacific for that whole distauce. . With the foam all white upon its mouth, the Globe, in a tone of affected humor, adds: The idea of anybody getting excited about this affair, is simply rediculous. it may afford our Republican neighbors an opportunity of extending their Japanese system, and making themselves as disagreeable as possible to the bold pioneers who penetrate the northern re goius of British Columbia. But the acquisi tion of 481,276 square miles of ice, with a pop ulation, all told, of J,000 Cossacks aud 50,000 savages, is hardly ail investment to Is* coveted by anybody not afflicted with an insatiable craving for useless territory. The London Free Pres* takes a sober po litical view of this proved transfer from Russia to the United Suites. It says: The cession of a large tract of territory lying in what has been kuowu as Russia America, to the United States Government, is an occur rnece not without its significance. Commer cially speaking, the territory cannot bo said to be very valuable, though modern discovery may yet prove it to be of no little consequence. * * * But, however tills may be, it is from a political and territorial aspect that the mat ter becomes ot great importance. The acqui sition of a possession having a coast line of fif teen hundred miles, and running into the in terior for a distance of one thousand miles in some places, in all nine hundred thousand square miles in close proximity to the British territory, is an event which indicates a forecast of no little moment. So long us the iumieuse tract, sixteen times as large as England, was held by Russia, the British {tOHAessions had for a neighb or a Power uot likely to agitate tor enlargements in that direction. A kind of balance of power was maintained between the throe occupants; hut if the occasion is con cluded of which there seems no doubt, the United States will have an overwhelming pre ponderance. * * * Every foot of ground gained by the States is a menace to other na tions, but the most so to the only power that now holds considerable territory on this conti nent besides themselves—England. France and the other Eutopcan nations have a more remote iuterest in tue matter, buteven to them, the rapid accumulation of territory aud power by the States liiu^ have its warning voice. The downfall of French influence in Mexico is an affair due to the machinations at Washing ton, and in a few months the world may see a protectorate over Mexico, on the part of the United States, which will be but the immedi ate prelude to to occupation and annexation. This accomplished, and it will be seen grasp ing in its gigantic embrace the whole of the North American continent, save that which is comprised in Canada and the North West ter ritory. To what this result may lead it is uot easy to predict. AMIABILITY BESTOKED. The Quebec Chronicle puts ou a very amia able air, since the Confederation hill has re ceived the Uoyalapproval, and says: We have uuw ceased to be angry, and feel that we can ali'urd to laugh, at the officious in termeddling of our Republican neighbors with reference to our affairs. What the House ol Representatives may choose to say about tlie government of these Provinces is of very little consequence. We know they are not pleased to see us prospering when they themselves are iu difficulties, financial, commercial aud so cial, from which they have no immediate pros pect ol being able to extricate themselves.— That these difficulties, in place of involving us, should on the coutrnry tend to bind us to gether fiotli in politics aud iu trade, is a result, wluch however natural, they cau scarcely lie expected to regard with equanimity. The following, howevtr, fioin the same pa per, shows that our northern neighbors air obliged to indulge in an occasional dessert ol HOI'U (1 RAPES. Much to their surprise they have discovered within the last twelve mouths that we can live without them, and that the mere they im pose duties witli a view to exclude our pro duce, the loss is only lelt by their own mer chants and consumers, while the prosperity ul the several Provinces has increased to an ex tent never before equalled. At the eud of the year which was to see us knocking at the door of the Union to save us from starvation, Cana da, New Brunswick and Nova >Scotia have had the largest and most profitable trade they have ever known, and the fiuances of their respec tive governments arc in a more nourishing condition than ever before. The political un ion that is now practically accomplished is with a view to increase this prosperity by con firming our independence of the States com mercially. This, at least, may he considered the great result to be arrived at. The idea, we believe, is one that has yet scarcely dawn ed on the egotistical minds of American poli ticians. The above is refreshingly cool. If suspen sion of reciprocity has been so beneficial to our neighbors, bow happens it that Nova Scotia passed retaliatory acts which even now she refuses to repeal, and thus, to spite us, taxes the very bread with which to teed her population. In relation to the burdens of the two countries, it is a notorious fact that Pan ada has a public debt which, in proportion to her population and resources, is nearly if not quite equal to ours, and even tn time of peace is increasing that debt, through the enormity of her expenses compared with her small rev enues. It is also notorious that labor is l(et t«r rewarded here than there, insomuch that ose of the crying evils of that country is the unwillingness of the better class ol immi grants to stop there, and the mcreasmg dispo '. - men—and women too—to em sitiou ol young “» 1 ierat,<' to the States,-the former because <>t hot ter business pros|M-cts, and the latter to work . our factories; amt besides this.it is the constant refrain of all enterprising Canadians that they want Yaukee enterprise and Yan kee capital to elevelope their resources anel to build them up in wealtli and prosperity. PARTY SPIRIT. The administration papers in Canada— those which support the present ministry—are generally deprecating the party spirit likely to spring up in connection with the inauguration of the confederated government. The To ronto Leader says: It is an alarming proof of the partial de bauchment of public sentiment when any con siderable section of tin* population can venture to propose the formation of a party without any guiding principle. Still worse is it whet] the necessity lor any such light to guide them is ignored, and when all exhortations to wait till some issue oil which men can honorably divide arc passed over in sullen silence or de rided with contemptuous jeers. This is the general teaching of that pop tion of the press which has opposed repre sentatiou based ou population,and known us the conservavative or tory press. The uu>t>e leads off in the opjiosite direction. It repre sents the “outs," and perhaps one reason why the “ins" are so much opjiosed to the revival of party strife is because they fear its etleet in jostling them from power and place. the new POLITICAL RELATIONS. “Now that C'oalcderulion is as good as ac complished," says the Montreal Hifitem, “it is useless any longer to discuss whether that measure was desirable or necessary. Upon use points there were various stiades of opinion, al l of which required to lie explained and considered; hot the time for such discus sion is pas,, and all win he ready to admit that d there were many difficulties in the way of the proposed change, there would also have heeu difficulties in continuing as we were.” Tie I Hines* concedes that Canada West is to have the least measure of power in pro portion to its numbers and wealth, and to I tear the heaviest burdens. It says; It is notorious that Upper Canada, which contains nearly the hall of tho whole popula tion of the Confederate Provinces, and prob ably a full half of the wealth, will have con siderably less representation in proportion to numbers, ami will have to bear a considerably greater proportion of the whole burden than her proportionate share; but these disadvan tages she was willing to accept in order to ob tain ibe uncontrolled management of her in ternal affairs, and be freed from the still great er burdens she has hitherto bad to bear ou ac count of Lower Canada. FALLS INTO LINE. Tiie Montreal Herald has been oue of the ablest ol the anti-Con federation papers in the Provinces, lint now that Confederation is vir tually a fact accomplished, it makes a virtue ol necessity, and comes out In the lollowing style, for which the Torouto Globe pats it on the head affectionately: Whether this revolution was really desired by the people, or is likely to fulfil all the anti- • creations of its promoters, are questions wh ich it is now nee!less to discuss. Our own views on both points have been frequently expressed, and are well known to onr readers, anil we are quite willing to leave th^ir vindication or their condemnation to the logic of events. Strongly as we deprecated the impending change in our form of government, while there was a possi bility ol'averting it, now that it is inevitable wo hold that it is the dnty ol all to give to the new system a fair trial, and to endeavor to se enre to the country, through its instrumental ity, the blessings of a stable, ait efficient and economical government, THE RIGHT OF SUFFRAGE. Suffrage in Canada is made dependent on property qualifications. Residence is not es sential. The British subject votes wherever he has the required amount of property, no matter if in a dozen different places. An American, with the property to back him, may vote by just taking the oath of allegiance. Non-payment of taxes disqualifies. In Mon treal on t lie 1st in St. there were 7,618 quail lied voters, aud 8,750 disqualified by reason of non-payment of taxes. MINES ANU TRADE OF NOVA SCOTIA. The trade returns of Nova Scotia for the year ending Sept. 30,1800, show f>. iatge fall ing off in exports, notwithstan ding some of the Colonial papers claim that the suspension of the reciprocity treaty was upon the whole a benefit to the provinces. In 1805 the ex ports amounted to $8,830,093, but in 1800, on ly to $8,043,095, showing a decrease of $787,598. The exports to the United States show a decrease of $391,247; to Great Brit ain, $470,858; to Prince Edward Island, $52,348. The exports to Canada increased $136,571; to New Brunswick, $187,538; and to Newfoundland, $35,420. The abrogation of the “Reciprocity Treaty” with the United States, and the iuqiosition, in the latter country, of a somewhat heavy du ty on eoai, bad its damaging effect upon the coal trade, as the United States was the lar gest consumer. The number of mines worked during the year was about 70, add tlio average mini tier of men at work, nearly 070. The total yield of gold was 24,102 ounces. The yield of the quarter ending December 31, 1865, was 6, 044 ounces; lor the quarter ending March 31, 18ii0, it was 5.018ounces; lor that ending June 30, 3,916 ounces and for the last quarter, 7,1x3 ounces—malting the total above given, 24,162. The number of crushing mills employed was ;S8— 27 steam power and 11 water [siwer. The amount of quarts, sand aud gravel crushed was 30,9ti3 tons; the average yield per ton was 15 dwts. 14 grs.; and the maximum yield was 87 oz. The average yield per man for the year, at $18 50 per oz., was $670—which exceeds that of auy previous year. Although, therefore, the total yield ot gold for I860 is slightly less than that Tor 18#i5, the profits to the miners were greater. The last census of the British Provinces was taken in 1861, with the following result. Canada West, 11,396,091; Canada East, 1,11, 500; New Brunswick, 252,047; Nova Scotio 330,857; Prince Edwards Island, 80,857: Newfoundland, 124,288, The preceding ten years hail shown a rate of increase as follows: C. W-, 4.34-2 per cent.; C. E., 2.50 do.; N. B., 2.00 do.; N. S., 1.82 do.; P. E. I., 2.07 do.; N. F., 1.50 do. These rates of increase seem very small— almost like standing still, when compared with the rates of increase "in the United States, and suggest the thought that it will be a long day before the “Dominion cf Canada” will greatly overshadow its big coua iu on the south. Allowing the same rate of increase since as before the census,—and this is all the provincial papers claim,—the pres ent population is very nearly as follows: Upper Canada ... 1,802,056 Lower Canada - - 1,288,8X0 New Brunswick .... 295,084 Nova Scotia .... 368,78t P. E. Island - ... 91,443 Newfoundland ... 1311,1x10 Total - - 3,967,3*4 MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. Lord Monck, the Uoveruor General of Canada, is exacted to leave England on liis return the first of June. A difference of opinion is springing up and awakening discussion, in relathm to the location of the Inter-colonia Hailway. Different routes contended for will involve a difference, it is said, of $5,000,000 in the cost of construction.
