Dominion Policy The inducements that the present Domin ion government has held out to Manitoba, Prince Edward Island and other outlying British provinces, indicate that it is exceed ingly ambitious if not anxious to enlarge its ! borders. This fact is clearly illustrated in | the recent covenant made with Prince Ed ward Island by which it was induced to en ter the confederation. By its provisions that province is authorized to contract a debt ot $4 ,101,050, or $50 a head for its population, J on which the Dominion is to pay the interest. If the province does not contract such a debt, it is to have the interest on that sum at five per cent for whatever purpose it pleases. In addition to this the Dominion practically purchases the lands of large proprietors on the Island and give them to the local or pro vincial government j and further for the trans fer to the Dominion of the right of taxation, $10,000 annually is to be paid the Island for the support of the local government in addi tion to an annual grant of eighty cents a head of its population until the same shall reach 400,000. The Dominion also assumes the salaries of the governor, the supreme and county courts, aud provides for the mainte nance of its postal department, fisheries, mi litia, light houses, penitentiary and an effi cient steam service between the island and the main land. The railways under construc tion are to become the property of the Do minion. Such are the inducements that Sir John A. Macdonald’s government had to offer to woo the little province of Prince Edward, an is land of 1,250,000 acres of which 800,000 acres belong to persons living in England and which it has agreed to purchase as above stated. The government ought to expect that the six votes it has given to the Island in the Dominion parliament, would be on its side of the chamber from mere gratitude. To pacify New B.unswick and secure her vote, the majority in the Dominion Parlia ment or government has just voted her an annuity of $150,000, which, with the Prince Edward Island transaction will have the effect, says Mr. Cartwright, a member of the House, to run the public debt of the Dominion up to $160,000,000. The revenue of the country is estimated at $18,000,000, (he postal deficiency and cost of collection deducted therefrom, leaves $16, 500,000 as the net income. Taking there from $8,000,000 for interest of the public debt, $3,000,000 for subsidies for the provin ces, but $5,500,000 remains to meet the ordi nary expenses of the government. The old provinces, which are not increasing in popu lation will have to bear the burden of this debt in addition to present heavy municipal debts. Notwithstanding the great prosperity of the Dominion the past three years, the cen sus discloses the fact that no less than 489,000 Canadians have emigrated to the United States. A few years of poor harvests or any general depression of her industries, in view of the fast increasing taxati >n, it is predicted by prominent gentlemen of the opposition, will surely involve the country in great diffi culty if not iu financial ruin. Whether the fears of the opponents of Sir John A. Mtcdonald’s government are real or imaginary, the simple fact that the country is being loaded down with a public debt as large per capita as that of Great Britain, in a time of peace, is not an encouraging one; and the plea that the expenditure has been made largely to build railroads, canals and similar improvements, in view of the results in other countries and 3tates will hardly jus tify it. The Gubernatorial Canvass. It is quite evident that in some sections of the State the people are beginning to take some interest in the pending Gubernatorial canvass. The reports are, however, of the most conflicting character, but indicating that the respective partizaus of alcesrs. Ding ley and Stone are getting up a very animated contest. The reports that the friends of both gentlemen bring are of the most hopeful char acter trom their respective stand-points, indi cating that they are either gravely mistaken or grossly attempting to help their favorites chances by misrepresentation. From Augus ta their comes two reports, one that Mr. Stone has no substantial strength and the other that Mr. Diugley will be beaten at the State capital. Bound, as we are, to believe both parties, we must conclude that Judge Kent or some not yet named public favorite, will be honored with the votes of the Augus ta delegation. One gentleman yesterday unrolled to us the Stone map of Knox and Lincoln counties. A few minutes after another surveyor disclosed to our view the Dingley field in the same counties. A novice in these affairs, we were not a little surprised that both claimed the same territory. Another man gave us the names of gentlemen who are doing their level best for Mr. Stone; but we grieve to confess that by the version of another caller, the same patriotic gentlemen were “just breaking their backs” for the able editor of the Lewis ton Journal. It is beyond question a very remarkable campaign and uuder the circumstances all the statements we hear may be true; but we con fess that they lead us to conclude that the people, if not with that ptofancly expressed enthusiasm of 1840, are really preparing to nominate Judge Kent. Indeed, the hot partlzans of the two worthy gentlemen so prominently mentioned, will render this course expedient in order to secure harmony. While the friends of Messrs. Dingley and Stone arc making such a flourish of trumpets, the supporters of Judge Kent are quietly at work for their favorite. The Department of Agriculture is receiv ing advices from the West to the effect that farmers are much discouraged at the pros pects for the corn crop for this 9eason. The spring has been so cold that the seed planted has rotted to some extent. It may, there fore, be assumed that the price of corn will be higher than for the past two or three years though there is a large amount in the hands of the producers in consequence of the high railroad freights. A knowledge of the probability of higher prices at this time of the year, may be valuable to such farmers in Maine and elsewhere as have depended largely upon the Western produc'. for a sup ply. . y proper for trade unions to regu late their own action. The right to strike is an ina lenable one—if any man or aDy num ber of men choose to do so. It would be an infraction upon their rights to attempt to prevent them. But when ,he carpenters of New York pass resolutions to notify all join ers to quit work on a certain day, or work only eight hour a day, the/ g0 a step too far and assume powers that the most arbitrary of governments do not assume at the present time. They deny to American citizens the right to control their own services. It is one step too far; and, in time, r,he outrage will bring those who attempt it to the punish ment it richly merits.

It is admitted that this is a statement calculated to make one feel very complacent bnt the Herald should have gone to the tables of population and there it would have found that in nearly ev iry strictly agricultural town in the State jutside of the newer portions, the number of inhabitants have fallen off and noticeably the number of young men. Tiie anti-railroad monopoly movement in the West is in peril. All of the worn-out and discarded political hacks—long ago rniis crcd out in disgrace—snii! dinner in toe movement and they aie writing letters, mak ing speeches and otherwise identifying them selves with the’well intended organization of a suffering people. In h=s exasperation the western farmer is warranted in taking down his little shot-gun (political) to drive out of his o'ganization these fellows, who will be sure to ruin the much needed reform of rail road transportation. Tue National Board of Fire Underwriters lias resolved to raise a fund of $100,000 for the detection and conviction of parties en gaged in the nefarious business of incendiar ism and arson. This action is most timely and important, when it is remembered, that the experience of large fire insurance compa nies transacting business' in the United States is, that 33 per cent of the whole less is to be attributed to incendiarism, and that the loss from this cause in the country is at least $25, 000,000 annually. That rash dweller of Kendall's Mills who vowed that the Maine Central shouldn’t cross his land, even if that generous corporation should top dress it with thousand dollar greenbacks, has relented. Judge Rice, sua vtter in mode, fortiter in re—the in re being a $1,000 check—was too much for the sturdy yeoman. One branch of the Boston city govern ment has appropriate a sum of money to en able Prof. Wise to cross the Atlantic in a bal loon. He is to start from the Boston Com mon on the Fourth of July to the music of ihe big organ and Mr. Gilmore's troupe—if the other branch arc equally anxious to get rid of Mr. Wise. It is stated that the cotton crop of the present year will be very costly if not larger than those of the two proceeding years, for the reason that the planters have bought large amounts of fertilizers on credit, seeking to increase their product without a corres ponding increase of acreage. The farmers just now cannot give much time to the governor question as it is just the best planting season ever known. The can vass has not yet assumed so hot a type as to produce a drought that will materially injure the now promising grass crop. Tiie bill authorizing the consolidation of the Eastern and Boston & Maine Railroads has passed the Massachusetts Senate, by a vote of 15 to 10. Yoek county is not entirely unanimous for Mr. Stone for a correspondent of the Saco Independent presents the name of ex-Judge Taplev as his choice for Governor. Mercantile Agencies. The superior court of Montreal has recently made a decision on the subject of mercantile agencies that will be of interest to many of our readers: Girard vs. Bradstreet et al.—A trader sues a mercantile agency for $10,000 damages for libel. The defendants collect information about the standing of merchauts, and publish the information every six months in a book which they lend (as they term it) to their sub scribers, and which is to be confidential, and returned when the next volume issues. Sev eral thousand are issued in the Dominion, and about 30 in Montreal. The standiug, etc., of traders is indicated by numbers or letters after their names, for which there is a key ic the book. The plaintiff says that in March, 1872, he was thus marked as haviug “failed,” and that lie was consequently ruined. The plea is that it was true, and ouly confidentially given, without malice, and that no damage was sus tained. At the argument the danger, on one hand was pointed out of maintaining defend ants’ pleas, as honest traders who would not subscribe to these agencies might be placed under an espionage and secretly ruined; while, ou the other hand, it is claimed that these are necessities of trade. As to the plea of the con fidential nature of this book, it caunot stand for an instant. It has been so held in France. (See Dalloz for 18G9.) If defendants publish in their book, although only under an agree ment for secrecy, an untrue statement, or one which ought not to be made public, and there by cause damage, they must answer for it. Indeed, false statements made by them would be even worse than if published in a newspa per, for the latter would be seen and might be refuted, while the former circulate and do the injury in secret. The question remains; was the published statement true; if so. had defendants a right to publish it; and did it damage plaintiff? I hold it not to be unlawful when a commercial bouse suspends or fails to publish the fact in a circu lar or book. It is done every day in the news papers. Defendants published that the plain tiff had “failed”; was it true? Evidence has been taken oil the meaning of the word “fail ed.” The French witnesses say that it is equiv alent to the French l'f'ai!li" and that plaintiff had not •ifailli.” Others say that when a trad er allows his notes to be protested, and does not pay accounts generally as they become due, that he may be said to have “failed.” It is proved that plaiutiff was in difficulties and be hind with his payments some time before the book appeared in March, 1872. Previous to that time he bad called ou his creditors gener ally and got an extention of time without in terest. The deed was really a composition, and although not completed until after tile book in question was published it was arranged before that time. 1 bold that it is proved that plain tiff liad really “failed” although be bad not made an assignment, that the statement was true, and made without malice, and that de fendants are not liable in damages. Action dismissed. How to Prevent Grasshopper Plagues. —The telegraph a few days since brought an account of the ravages caused in Texas by grasshoppers, who are rapidly eating their way through the growing crops; and now we learn that southern California is visited by the same plague, and that the greater portion of the counties in that section of the State are in a fair way to be laid waste by them. When the grasshoppers are full grown and have once commenced their work of destruction, there is no way to cope with them. But when the in sects are first hatched, their destruction is easy. In this connection the San Francisco Bulletin says: “Entomologists are familiar with the fact that grasshoppers deposit their eggs in a very limited space—seldom more than an area of two or three acres. An expert has no difficulty in the proper season to discover the hatching bed, and ascertain when the young insect is likely to emerge from the egg. It is not many years since Russia was infested by the grass hopper plague, and its broad wheat lands de vastated year after year, as completely as Utah has been devastated by them during late vears. The Russian Government has enlisted science to aid in carrying on the war of extermination against the grasshopper, and has succeeded so well that the armies formerly hatched in the plains have totally disappeared, and hut few of those incubated on the great steppes of the Ural Mouutain ever reach the valleys. The mode of warfare is as simple as it is effective, the in sects being captured before leaving the lialch ing grounds, by small boys with fly nets. Ex perienced entomologists are employed to ascer tain the locality where the grasshoppers’ eggs are deposited and the time when incubation will take place. If by these simple means the grasshopper plague can be expelled from the land, it would certainly seem desirable that the experiment should be tried. It would be a yearly saving of millions of dollars worth of produce, which is now devoured by this ravag ing insect.” The Coal Market.—The great carrying companies are steadily advancing the price of coal, according to the programme laid out early in the year. The thing now in order is to have prices more upward every month. A general advance may be looked for about the first of June, and it will probably be announced short ly after the agents’s meeting, in New York,this week. Already the preliminary advance has taken place at tho large shipping points. The contract rates for coal at Boudout, for in stance, are twenty cents per ton higher than they were in April, in which month egg coah one of the five market varieties, was quoted at $4 80 per ton. Next month, the price will be $5.00 per ton. It may now be said that the wealthy companies monopolizing the anthra cite coal trade have got their own way in the matter, and the consumers must tolerate the combination. The average advance in the Mav rate of 1873, over that of 1872, is about eiehtv four cents for S-ranton coal. If the existing programme is carried out, it is nrobahle coal will be about a dollar a ton higher thau i was last year, and the “combination" will bv • the rise, makeat least 820,000,000 out of the ' consumers.—Boston Globe. 01 ine i One of Barnum’s boa constrictors, imported 1 last year from Africa at a vast expense, died in Boston on Thursday last. Intemperance in New York—Rev. Mr. ' Boole, a celebrated Methodist clergymen' last I Sunday made an address on temperance in which he gave the following statistics which the Herald calls “startling and reliable:” First It annually cost the country more than to carry on all the machinery of the govern ment. There are about ten thousand liquor shops in the city of New Yolk. Tiie Protestant churches number 300, and require $1,000,000an nually to carry them on. Amount expended in the rum shops for an equal time is $00,000,000. In one » aid the rum shops are so numerous that if they were placed in a row they would line both 8 des of Broadway from the Battery to City Hall. During last year the amount paid for rum in the United States was $1,483,491,805 or $43 for each man, woman and child. Tho en tire railroad property of the country does not exceed in value the amount annual y expended for liquors. In the State of New York the sales l>y the retail trade last year amounted to $‘>40 - 007,520, or $00 for every man, woman and child The entire amount of money expended for flour meal, clothing, woolen and cotton goods, boots’ and shoes, books, newspapers and job printiu" two years ago throughout the whole country was $130,000,0«) less than that laid out for in toxicating liquors. Second—As to the results. Governor Dix admits in his veto that four fifths of all the crime, pauperism and misery is due to liquor. This means that 800 out of the 1090 prisonere on Blackwell’s Island are there because of rum. The rumsellers murder in the United States alone 70,000 persons yearly. It scuds annually 100,000 men and women to prison. Murdered victims of the traffic average 1 every 10 min utes. l bird—As to the real nature of the traffic, ft is a wholesale ami retail trude in poison. There is not a liquor dealer from Fifth avenue to the Fourth ward who dares to submit all his liquors to thr test of the chemist, and, having so submitted it, to put up the result on a pla card behind his couuter. A cask of brandy re cently shipped from this city to a prominent Cincinnati druggist was found to contain sul phuric, nitric and prussic acids, fusil oil and red pepper There are no such things sold as pure liquors. Monument to Jim Fisk—One Meade, a townsman of the late Jim Fiske, is busily en gaged at Florence in making a monument to Erie's departed Prince, which is to be placed over his grave at Brattleboro. The design is an obelisk twenty feet high, on which will be a medallion bust of deceased; at the corner of the pedestal four a’legorical female figures, indicative of tho ways and means by which Fisk attained such celebrity—“Commerce,” with Mercury’s wand and a sack of gold; the theatre, called by compliment the “Drama.” with toe lyre and laurel; the “Railroad,” hav ing as distinguishing ornament ou her coronet a diminutive locomotive; and, fourth, the “Steamboat,” who will as her symbol wear a tiny side-wheeler. A Fool.—The London Church Herald must be edited by a fool, the proof of which may be found in the following statement relativo to John Stuart Mill: “His‘philosophy,’so called, was thoroughly anti-Christian; his sentiments daringly mis chievous and outrageously wild. As a member of Parliament be was a signal failure, and his insolence to, and contempt for, the great Con servative party was well known. His death is no loss to anybody, for he was a rank but amia ble infidel, and a most dangerous person. The sooner those Mights of thought’ who agree witn him go to the same place, the better will it be for l*oth Church and State. We can well spare the whole crew of them, and shall hear of their departure, whether one by one, or in a body, with calm satisfaction.” Portland & Ogdensuurg Railroad.—The completion of the Vermont division of the Portlaud & Ogdensburg railroad more than half its entire length,at a great saving over t'ao original estimates, and the assurance of the engineer that the remainder of the line on which work is going forward vigorously, will show even greater economy of construction, has greatly stimula ed the sale of the first mortgage bonds. The low price at which they are offered for the present, and the certainty that they will advance in price, render them attractive as investments. The Messrs. Fair banks, who are the financial agents of the road, may well be proud of their success in building and managing the affairs of this new and shortest trunk line from the lakes to the Atlantic.— [Evening Post.

The Springfield Union, in noticing the expul sion of the homoeopathic doctors from the Mas sachusetts Medical Society, says: “It is an ex ample of the middle ago method of treating honest divergences of opinion, which will point the gibes of those medical skeptics who main tain the whole science of the materia medicate he a relic of medieval superstition ” Recently Milan was full of peasants, who came to visit the church of Saint Eustorgio on the fete day of Saint Peter the Martyr.

At this season if there any germs o' disease in the system, the beat is pretty sure to develop them. The bilious, the dys peptic, the nervous, the debilitated, sutler more at this period of the year than at any other. They, there ore, require an invigorating and regulating medicine, and this desideratum naa been placed with in the reach of all in the form of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. To recount the uses of this invaluable pre ventive an 1 remedy, seems like repeating a familiar fact that haa been notorious everywhere for many, many years. Who does not know that dyspepsia, bilious disorders, constipation, diarrhoeal attections, rheumatism, nervous complaints, kidney distnrban ces, ami constitutional weakness, in both sexes, are relieved and radically cured by this powerful yet harmless vegetable preparation.

Stevens : Dear Sir—This is to show tliet my son was taken sick in January, ly64. with Scrofula, which came out in large sores and ulcers on his leg and hip. His leg and hip was swelled more than twice its natural s*ze- 'la<l several doctors of high standing in their profession—two from Boston and three from Ohariesto”—without getting a bit better. He was obliged to lie wherever he was placed, for ho had no nse of his limbs whatever. When we had given up “''ft we were told to try VKOh 1remedy; and he had taken it but a short «ime before we could see <1 ermat rliiiufp The sores run so l ad that we ha. to rhang the four or five times a .'ay. Still, he w“?.etting bet er’ lor he con id m..vo his limbs and help bim-adfalittle’ He was soon able to sit up in bed, md bv constant use ot VEGETINE.it has cured him.’ %e if « ' l ime leg which he will probably have for lire but we all honestly believe, if wc had used VEGETINE before we had bothered with those doctors, it would have saved the use of bis leg, anti restored it to nat ural be iltb. I hope all those troubled with Scrofula will read this testimony of me and my son, who is now woll. and able to speak tor himself. CATHERINE MAHONEY, DANIEL MAHONEY, 19 Trenton St., Charlestown, Mass. May 10‘ 1872. The above plain but honest statement conclusively shbws the quick and thorough cleansing effects of the VEGETINE in Scrofula. What isVegretineJ It is a compound extracted from barks, roots, and herbs. It is Nature’s remedy. It is perfectly harm less from any bad effect upon the system. It is nour ishing and strengthening. It acts directly upon the blood. It quiets the nervous s stem. It gives you good, sweet sleep at night. It is a gieat panacea for our aged fathers and mothers, for it gives them strength, quiets their nerves, ami gives them Na ture’s sweet sleep, as has been proved by many an aged person. It is the great Blood-Purifier, it is a soothing remedy for our children. It has relieved and cured thousands. It is very pleasant to take— every child likes it. Unsolicited Evidence. Springfield, Me., May 14, 1872. Mr. II. R. Stevens : Dear Sir—My daughter has been out of health for about two years. About a year ago she had a tumor come on her fide, which was very painful. I saw VEGETINE advertised in the Farmer, and sent to Bangor and got two bottles. She is now tak ing the second b ttle: her health is much improved and the tnmor is going away as fast as it came. Everyone in this viei.dtj knows what VEGETINE has done for my daughter, ami 1 take every opiurtu nity to recommend it to those who are not aware of its great value. Youre resi»ecrfullv, MRS. SUSAN C.

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-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain iu the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, paiu in the shoulder blade, feeling som imes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belcbiug of wind. These symp toms usually originate irom a disordered condition of the etoraach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of fits situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck’s Seaweed tonic dtss v the food, mixes with the gastric 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 shallow, and the patient is a billious habit, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. H.
