In a few days more wc may ex
pect information respecting the situa
tion in the East. The lnirpoi t of
the news brought by the Mariposa
on the eighth was that war between
Great Riilain and Russia was in
evitable. The situation at the be
ginning of the present month was
extremely critical. Faint hopes were
entertained thai, after all, it might
amount only to a war of words, and
that diplomacy might postpone a
little longer a struggle that all the
political sects of the Old "Worjd had
come to view with a settled convic
tion that borne day it must conic.
The integrity of the Indian Empire
has long been the settled policy of
the British nation. All negotiations
with petty Oriental soveteigntics
and established powers have, for at
least the last quarter of a century,
been conducted with a view to the
safety of her Indian possessions.
Successive sovereigns in Afghanistan
have been enlisted as allies of Great
Britain. With the Afghan power
friendly, though treacherous, guard
ing the Kybcr and liolan Passes of
the Himalayas, her Indian preserves
were well protected from that qunrter.
With Turkey in obsequious alliance
and holding sway over South-eastern
Europe, Asia Minor and Egypt, she
is able to maintain a controlling in
terest in the approaches to India
from the Mediterranean. No Eu
ropean power, except Russia, has,
during the present century, taken
any active measures to checkmate
Uritish policy in the East. She has
watched the consolidation of Uritish
power with the "cold gray eye" of
undisguised envy. The advantages
to Uritish commerce and prestige of
her position in the East sug
gest to the Russian the immense
benefit it would be to the Muscovite
power if it could only reach out and
grasp the rich prizes of the Orient.
As regards territorial possession,
Great Britain with her 8,811,000
square miles and Russia with her
8,000,000 bquarc miles ought to be
very well satisfied without any fur
ther acquisitions. Tho population
of these vast areas numbers about
one-fourth of the inhabitants of the
globe. Two hundred and fifty
millions own allegiance to the crown
of Great Britain, and some eighty-
eight millions arc under the sway of
the Russian emperor. And it is at
this point that wc meet the question,
"What concern is it to us or any
other nation whether Great Britain
or Russia adds to her lands a few
million square miles, or ropes in a
few millions more of the world's
population?" Despite the gleeful
comments elicited everywhere by
tho prospect of witnessing wars,
battles and sieges from afar, this is
the grand question in which the
world's spectators ure most intense
y interested. Apart from all con
sideration of political alliance or
uotnmcicinl rolatlons, the possible
effect of nn Anglo-Itussinn wor up
on civilization, progress and free
dom is that dial invests the nmltor
wllh all its linpoi lance. Would the
extension of Hussion power be the
enlargement of the area of free in
stitutions, the betteting of the con
dition of millions of the human
family, and an increase of momen
tum to the world's progress? J Or
would the lessening of Biilish in
lluencc in Turkey and Afghanistan
and tho curtailment of her supre
macy in India be the emancipation
of now unwillingly dependent and
subject races? The principles of the
British constitution arc well known
and need not be slated. Her foreign
and colonial policy the past twenty
live or thirty years arc before the
civilized world. A glance at Russia
will show what elements of beauly
appear in her features to command
our admiration. Her government is
an unlimited monarchy ; all power,
civil and ecclesiastical, is vested in
the Emperor and in him alone. Tho
subject knows no rights that arc
not at the mercy of the monarch.
His sentiments, be they political,
social or religious, must be no more
than the echo of his sovereign's pleas
ure. A free prcss, directing and
moulding public opinion, is a thing
unknown for two reasons : lirst, there
is no ficedom of the press, and
second, there is no public opinion.
Popular grievances can be aired
only when they acquire sulllcicnt
force to explode in dynamite bombs ;
otherwise, there is but one remedy,
abject submission. State affairs aro
administered by a council and senate,
the members of which arc the cica-
turcs of the Czar. They arc honora
ble and distinguished, not for their
constitutional powers, but rather for
the high functions they dare hot
cxcicisc. A free representative of a
free and intelligent electorate exists
only in the dreams of the Russian
patriot, and to him alone who can
dream without talking in his sleep.
Thcic is a quasi toleration in matters
of faitli ; that is, provided the be
liever has the wrong faith at the
start, he is allowed to hold it fast to
the end ; but if he happens to be
born under the .orthodox Hag,
which, according to law, is that
of the Greek church, he is not per
mitted, sink or swim, to get aboard
any other ship. Liberty, under
Russian rule, means little more than
the doubtful privilege of existence
under a ubiquitous system of es
pionage and censorship. The much
lauded emancipation, in 18G1, of
20,000,000 serfs was little more than
a legal definition by which the sale
of land ceased to involve the sale of
the occupiers. It was left to the
genius of a Russian monarch to fur
nish future historians with that
wonderful feat of royal clemency
emancipating a nation without mak
ing a bondman free. When Western
Europe was emerging from medie
valism, and adopting representative
institutions, Pclcr the Gtcat was or
ganizing a new power and arraying
it in the cast-off habiliments of the
defunct despotisms. Absolutism,
consolidation and expansion are the
watchwords of Russian progress.
And for two centuries the goal of
her ambition has been the posses
sion of tho Mediterranean seaboard.
The war with Turkey in 1C9G, the
Crimean war of 1851-5, the war of
1877, and the now famous "advance
on Penjdch" arc but separate acts
in the gicat programme of Russian
policy. After chattering British
power in Ilindostan, the overthrow
of British influence on the Mediterra
nean would be a comparatively easy
task. The consummation of her
projects, is, however, as uncertain
as it is undesirable. Her success
would be the rolling back of the
wheels of civilization. Human free
dom would experience a contraction
co-extensive with the expansion of
her territory. In bold contrast with
the result of the growth of Russia,
is tho history of British acquisition.
Under Gicat Britain, the conquest of
baibarous races is leally their eman
cipation. It is no calamity to the
subjects of an African or Asiatic
prince to be placed under the juris
diction of the English Colonial
Oflicc. The mote they lose of their
national autonomy the greater is
their gain in individual liberty. The
three hundred million inhabitants of
Ilindostan are, with respect to in
dividual llbci ty, as free as tlio citi
zens of Canada or the fulled Stales.
The same may bo said of every
Rcpaialo portion of England's vast
empire. Whatever ihcro U of tolc
lulion in Tuikcy, to-day, has been
ginftcd on the withered old Moslem
trunk by the hands of British states
men. Wherever her influence is
felt or her power established, the
same results fellow. Individual
lights, free speech, a free press, and
government divested of despotism,
follow in tho wake of her conquests.
The London Mornimj 1'osl makes
the strange assertion thai the rebel
lion in Canada was fomented by
Russian agents with a view to em
bairassipg the Doninion authorities
and preventing their troops helping
England. There may be something
in it, but this ceitainly looks like a
fnr-fctched theory of the origin of
the half bteed and Indian rising. At
all events, mismanagement of Indian
affairs by the Dominion Government
seems to have provided inflammable
material for the mischief-makers,
whoever they were.
Mr. J. D. Downey, ex-Governor
of California, contemplates leaving
for the Coast by to-morrow's steam
er. It is a matter for regret, on the
pail of our people, that his slay
among them is so brief. His sterling
qualities of head and heart win him
the heartfelt friendship and esteem
of all who come in contact with him.
It is within his intentions to take a
journey to the East after crossing
the water. Mr. Downey expresses
himself as delighted with the beauties
of our ocean metropolis and the tro
pical balmincss of this climate. It
is to be hoped he may find it conven
ient to give us a longer visit at some
