The Dominion Parliament on Free Schools The exact limit of the power of fhe Domin ion government ar.d the extent of the local governments of the respective provinces con stituting the confederation, Is a question that promises to be productive of constant irrita tion in the Dominion and grave complications In the future. Just now this question is agi tating the public mind in various parts of that country and is being considered by the news papers, on account of the recent vote of the Dominion House of Commons requesting the Governor-General not to approve the anti separate school law of New Brunswick,which was enacted in 1871 and is now in succe sful operation. The question was first carried by the opponents of the measure to the privy council, which refused to take the responsibil ity of advising the Dominion governor to dis allow an act that the New BrunswicV: Assem bly had passed and its local governor ap proved. The new school syBtein of New Brunswick is on the same principle of that which has been established in New England. The Catholics and conservatives oppose the es tablishment of free schools supported Hy gen eral taxation, the former because they are not allowed to control their proportional part of the money for sectarian schools aud the lat ter because they are hostile to any innovation, and most of all any Yankee scheme. In New Brunswick there is a large majority of the people as well as of the Assembly in its favor. Put into practical operatic®, its good results have exceeded the expectations of its most hopeful friends. Its enemies in New Bruns wick haye hopelessly given up the attempt to secure Us abolition by the local government and they have applied to the Dominion au thorities. The privy council some time since gave its opinion that it was within the scope of the constitutional power of New Bruus wick to establish such a system of education. Not satisfied with that,Mr. Costigan a Roman Catholic of another province introduced a resolution requesting the Governor General to disallow the bill which formal ly comes before him for final approval. The resolution called forth a warm debate in which the government assumed the opposi tion while the opponents of the government, with Catholics, advocated it. In the course of the debate, strange as it may seem, the system of free education was assailed with great bitterness, painfully illus trating that the average Dominion memher of parliament fails to recognize that the general, unsectarian education of the people is the on ly road to advancement. In the vote which followed, the government was defeated, the Catholics which usually adhere to it voting with the opposition, whose eagerness to out vote the ministry surpassed their devotion to the higher interests of the country. It now remains to be seen what the Gov ernor-General will do under this novel state of affairs. The House of Commons are not his constitutional advisers and it is assumed that he will not feel bound by the late vote. In that event, the opponents of the free school system, confident of their majority in the House, will introduce a motion of want of confidence in the government and force it through, which of course will oblige the pres ent ministry to retire, to be replaced by one that will advise the Governor-General to dis allow the free school act of New Brunswick. This will raise the question as to what sub jects the local governments of the provinces _ can legislate upon. When they cannot pre scribe the method of the education of the young and raise money by taxation lor the support of schools, there are few matters that ean be considered within the;r constitutional authority, and for all practical purposes the local governments may as well be abolished, since their authority has been seized by the Domiuion Parliament. The intensely Catholic journals are iuso lent in their joy at their victory over popular education, and the friends of free schools are equally indignant at their defeat, as may be seen from the following extract from the St. John News: What if the result of a general appeal to the Dominion people should be adverse to our right? What, indeed! With our Union predilections so strong, and, apart from the trouble that has overtaken us, with our Un ion hopes and prospects so bright and prom ising, we shrink from pursuing that question * now. But if driven to consider it at last, we should have to say that New Brunswick can never consent to have its constitutional rights in the Union trampled underfoot in the man ner proposed, never, never, never. In the Harper for June, Mr. Charles Nordhoff recently of the New York Evening Post, shows that the present penitentiary system of the country costs ten millions, and repays less than half of it and makes the pris oners worse rather than better. He recoin metds that for a punishment the coun try revive the exploded system of a penal colony for the worst of criminals. The writ er says that Alaska is an out of the way and at present expensive piece of real estate to the government, without population because of its unfortunate location. He claims for it a bracing climate with all those rigors of nature that will require the highest human effort to exist and leave those who are sent there no 'time to think of crime and old associations. Mr. Nordhoff believes that daily struggle with the rugged forces of nature that Alaska pres ents will have the effect to ennoble even J;he or dinary state prison convict,and,in the absence of banks to rob and horses to steal, will even tually make a man of him. We are not so clear what the effect would be upon the con vict, but are free to express our conviction that he can’t do Alaska any material damage. The Oxford Democrat makes haste to as sume that Judge Kent is the candidate of a ring. If we should state that its favorite was the candidate of a ring it would become Indig nant at once. We have not done so, but on the contrary have distinctly declared that Mr^’Dingley would not use the office of Gov ernor if he is elected to help any man to the United States Senate. We believe it. Now why cannot the Democrat, when we have re peatedly declared that the Press supports Judge Kent because we sincerely believe that the best interests of the party organization and of the State require it, and not by the advice of any so called ring, give us the credit of acting honorably about the matter and at least of being truthful? Manly opposition would seem to dictate that course. Thb item published in the Lewiston Jour nal relative to the retirement of Judge Kent from the bench, was attributed to the Whig because it credited that journal with the ac count of the dinner in Judge Kent’s honor, and the State news editor assumed from the account that his age was the cause. Our ofc j serration has been that the Journal has been conspicuously honorable in its course with other papers. The act of Congress which went into effect Tuesday was a real measure of revenue re form. By the provisions 218 assessors and five or six times as many deputies retire from the army of office-holders and only ten take their places. The amount saved by this eco nomical measure will actually exceed $1,750, 000 the next year. us with”a'V Sossip mongers would startle being soienmw^ a'lr,®xalion scheme which is and his Cabinet."8-^"^ hy PresidentGrant annex the Sandwich bJ?. ^opositiorl >3 to ern Mexico, then Lower CaUfom"**1 North" ly Canada. an(llast. It will be seen by a special from Augusta that all is not quiet on the Kennebec. All is not harmonv on the Governor question. To the tidal wave of the Kennebec Journal there seems to be a reflux movement and things. How we advise those who would worship the rising sun not to take a stone when they can have bread by following Judge Kent. The Aroostook Pioneer states that the general feeling in that section is in favor of Judge Kent for Governor. If our advices are not generally at fault, Judge Kent will secure a strong support from the east. A contemporary states that a young man aged eighteen recently committed suicide on account of his inconsolable grief at the death of his step-mother. Appreciative youth, most remarkable step-mother. We have the best authority for stating that the rumor that the Maine Central has been leased to the Eastern Railroad Company is without foundation. Ko such action lias tak en place or is contemplated. the hall expedition. I — ! statements of the Mnrvivors-Thcy Be lieve They were Deserted - Intimation that Capt. nail wa* Poisoned—Had dington's Threat* against Tyson, Etc., Etc. _ A New York associated press despatch says that the papers of Wednesday morning publish thirteen columns of the details of the Polaris expedition, derived from the survivors. The prevailing impression of the unfortunates when left on the ice was that Lieut. Buddington bad wilfully abandoned them. They also believed that Capt. Hall was poisoued. They lived principally upon seals, occasionally indulging in a roasted dog. They'attribute their wonder ful pre ervation to the sagacity and persever ance of Capt. Tyson, while the latter says the scientific results amount to nothing. The expe dition demonstrated it is possible to penetrate farther into the mysterious region of the sea and ice than Franklin, Hayes or any other ex plorer proceeded, and furnished evidence of the probable existence of a polar sea. John Herron, steward of the Polaris, makes the fol lowing statement regarding tlio sickness and doath of Capt. Hall: Capt, Hall had good health up to the time of returning from the sledge expedition. He was not sick when he came ou hoard, but com plained soon afterwards, and said the heat of the cabin affected him. He got water to wash and put on clean underclothing. I asked him what he would have: was anxious to get him something nice. He did not care about any thing but some coffee, and he did not drink that. I had no conversation with him when he was sick, except to ask him if he was better occasionally, or now he was, and such like He was sick a fortnight, and talked very little. He was perfectly delirious for the last few days. I think he was paralyzed on one side. Heard no one say so. It was my own opinion. There was nothing sudden about his death. He was attended, by Dr. Bessels and Mr. Morton, who did everything in their power to alleviate his sufferings, but without effect. His illness cast a gloom over the entire company, and was the first discouraging circumstance which had occurred in connection with the expedition. His death made us all feel very sad. The prevailing impression among the unfor tunate nineteen who were left behind was that Buddington had willfully abandoned them to their fate. He had been anticipating the break ing up of the ice for some time, and if he had wished to have Tyson and his companions ou board he could easily have represented matters to them in such a light that they would not have ventured to he absent at so critical a junc ture, but no such intimation was given to the men on the ice. The vessel did not drift away so suddenly that the men could not have been rescued from their perilous position. Mr. Her on says: I made a rush for the vessel and song out for a line, but they would not give me one. Ches ter and Buddington were standing on the gang way and coaid have thrown me one. I was with four others on a piece of ice that bad pro visions on it. It cracked off and went adrift We got back to tuc main floe in a scow or boat which sunk under one of the men, hut we all got safely back. Tyson says: I could have got aboard the ves sel that night and been there now, but would not leave the women and children. My duty was on the ice. 1 thought he would get back to us the next day, which he could have done. Ti e breaking away was caused by the floe to which the ship was fastened drifting in between the land and some icebergs that were jammed. The jam broke up the floe and the vessel broke away. It was about nine or ten o’clock in the night. The temperature was about zero. Capt. Tyson, speaking of Capt. Hall’s death says: i uapt. nail was sick niteen aays. At nrst ne was paralyzed, and then delirious. He started from the ship on a sled expedition northwards on the 10th of October. He was absent four teen days, and returned on the 24th of October to the ship. On the 8tli of November he died and was buried. His grave bore south, south east, about 500 paces distant from the observa tory at Polaris Bay,which was in lat. 81.38, Ion. 61.44 on the shore. We erected aboard over his grave with an inscription cut, giving his name, age, (50 years), date of death, and •‘Commander of the North Polar Expedition.” All hands, except the cook, attended the funer al. It was a dark, dismal, cold, windy and dis agreeable day. The wind was mournfully howl ing, and the hearts of all were enveloped in the deepest sadness. I held a lantern, and by the. light of it the beautifnl service of the Episcopal Church was read by Mr. Bryant, As the sooth ing words “1 am the resurrection and the life, saith the lord” fell upon the ears of the au ditors, there we c few dry eyes; and there, amid the savage desolation of nature most rugged, the power of Christianity made itself felt by those who had never, before acknowledged its influence. Few of those who were present at the burial will forget the deeply affecting scene. Old sailors, whose faces had beeji bronzed by summer suns, and frozen in arctic seas, wept aloud. Capt. Hall was universally beloved, and his death, at the time when the enterprise promised so hopefully, was felt by his survivors to be an irretrievable loss. These thoughts were uppermost in the minds of all, and when the funeral party returned to the ship there was a hushed silence attending the performance of every duty. Esquimaux Joe says that Capt. Buddington was quarreling all the time, and speaks in gen eral disapprobation of him. He says also, that Capt. Hall was poiBoned, anil that the latter so expressed himself to him, Capt. Tyson thinks the ill feeling and bad de sigus of Buddington and a few others, who were bis accomplices, had continued from the first, I ou account cf Capt. Hall’s determination to go as far north as possible, and Buddington’s de termination from fear or whatever cause, that he should not. After Hall’s death, most of the others were in fayor of continuing ana pushing north, and Tyson says that Buddington several times expressed his determination to send Tyson and his party on the road to hell as soon as an opportunity offered. He characterized Budding ton as a great scoundrel, and declares that ha purposely abandoned them to destruction. He gives Myers the character of being energetic and qualified in bis department, but thinks he was not sufficiently aware of the condition of affairs at the time of the separation, and the possibility of getting rescued, to be able to give any opinion upon it, The Germans, according to his account, ruled the ship after Capt, Hall’s deaih, and there was neither law nor system on board, every one working entirely on his own acconnt. Bessel and Bryant were anx ious to get as for north as possible. Myers hap worked hard and lost all his labor. The .Vienna Opening —A Suggestive Scene.—In his letter to the New York Times descriptive of the opening of the Vienna ex position, Bussell draws the following suggestive picture; It was, m truth, a strange congregation enough to look at even in this year of grace, 1873, and in the individualities present were re corded great changes in the history of the world. Three years ago it would have been strange not to have beheld the Emperor of France standing there haply on the right of the Kaizer, to whom he gave such potent and un forgiven aid in his time of trouble; but now all of France visible was a grave, lachrymose lion, towering on its pedestal above the new coali tion, and seemingly regarding with fixed atten tion the crown Prrnce of Prussia and Prince Imperial of Germany, as lie, poised in his favorite attitude, stood with both hands on huge steel pommel of his heavy sword firmly resting on his right leg, and with bis left ad vanced and bent at the knee. There was a moral in tbe interest with which an Austrian crowd gazed upon the heir to the throne of the imperial Germany. How tbe ghosts of the Hapsburgs must have rattled their dry bones at the fact of a Hohenzollern being by all men admitted as of right the coming “Deutsch land’s Kaiser!” There he was, nevertheless, the kindly, gentle, liberal “man of war,” vic tor at Konniggratz, victor at Worth, conqueror at Sedan, investor of Paris, who would not, if he could, stay it that war should ever rage, aud yet who would not yield a point of national honor to menace of any force. In a peace de monstration like this the presence of the Crown Prince was a pregnant commentary of the value of those anticipations of an era of uni versal tranquillity, or at worst endless arbitra tions. The juxtaposition of some of his im perial highness’ neighbors might make a nerv ous man uneasy. On his leP, a little in the rear, was the Crown Prince of Denmark, from whom Prussia united with Austria had wrench ed such a large payment of his father’s gallant little kingdom. On his right was the emperor, to whom the success of his arms had cost the Italian possessions of the Hapsburgs. Beyond him was the Prince of Wales, brother of his wife, husband of the Danish princess who has never ceased to grieve over tbo misfortunes of her beloved coontry, and who can never forgive the Prussians who mainly wrought the wron® Further again to the right was lie burly figure of tbe Duke of Coburg, who has beon in fear and trembling for tbe honors he is to bequeath to his nephew, auotlier brother of the crown princess, ami who was swept up iu the ruck of pnncerj in unwilling antagonism to Austria in I860. There is uot a German potentate there to whom Prussia has not been a dictator or a master or a despoiler iu some way or other. And is Prussia tbe worse or the Crown I^iuce the less honored for it? Not at all. The Crown Prince of Belgium would be ver> glad indeed to hear that there never will be a question again of partition of lii* little kingdom. East Maine Conference Appointments.

Dunn, the Law Court have just decided the plaintiff nonsuit. The merits of the case, as we understand it, are these: E. G. Dunn ob tained of the Land Agent a permit to cut lum ber on one of the townships to which the rail way company claimed title under the act donat i#g to said company all of the State lands in this county not set apart and reserved for set tlement. The company claimed stumpage, but Dunn paid it to tbe State under protest. There upon the railway company sued Duun for the stnmpage with the above result. This decision virtually settles in favor of the State (and the settlers) the question of whether the title of quite a number of townships set apart for set tlement, and already partially occupied by set tlers, passed from the State by donation, or whether the State still owns them. Another suit involving the same point is pending be tween the State and the railway company.— Aroostook Pioneer.

Augusta, May 17,1873. The New Brunswick Schools.—Sir J. A. Macdonald announced in the House last even ing in regard to Mr. Costigan’s resolution on the New Brunswick school law, asking that certain acts of the N. B. Legislature in connec tion therewith be disallowed, that the Governor General had resolved to apply to the Imperial Government for instructions as to the course proper to be followed in response thereto. The Premier also stated that the Government was prepared to make a grant of money to New Brunswick Catholics to assist them in prosecut ing an appeal against the School Act to the British Privy Council. The last looks like a sop to Cerberus, and a cynical person might say it was perfectly consistent with the policy at tributed to Sir John of overcoming obstacles and smoothing down asperities by a liberal use of the universal solvent—money.—Montreal Witness.

For All Localities and Clines. A true specific is adapted to all localities and climes and for this reason, that it strikes at the causative principal of the diseases which it is administered to cure. Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters, for example, is a true specific, not only because it fortifies the body against the external influences which prompts dis ease, but because, when taken as a remedy instead oi as a preventive, it neutralizes the infective principle in the blood ana thereby destroys the primary source of the ailment. Hence as an antidote to epidemic disorders, and to all coir plaints which are produced or aggravated by miasma, or the presence of any thing deleterious in the air. the water or the soil, it is as nearly infallible as any medicinal preparation can be. In our own country, as a remedy for intermit tent fevers, bilious affections, constipation, dyspepsia, nervous weakness, rheumatism and general debility, it is unrivalled, nor is it, less celebrated in the tropics as a preventive of malarious fevei s.

F. ld*w Ivrs N CONSCRIPTION CAN BE CURED SCHENCK’S PULMONIC SYRUP, SCHENCK’S SEAWEED TONIC, SURENCK’S MANDRAKE PILLS, Are the only medicines that will cure Pulmonary consumption. Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-tbiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, paiu in the shoulder blade, feeling som>imes very restless, ami at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate from a disordered condition of the etomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and If the cough m these cases be suddenly stopixxl, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of bis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Scherfck's Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck’s Seaweed tonic diss v the food, mixes with the gaatric juice of the sto ach, digests easily, nourishes the system, and creat a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shiiHow imd the patient Is a bilUous habit, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. II.
