Grogan Given Up.-We learn from the t
Montreal papers shot the so called Colonel- f'
Grno hats been given up by His Excel- n
lenaev Sir RicharsJackson, Admniuistrator a
of tie Canadian Government. on applica
tion of'the United States authorities. He a
was handed over to the inspector of Pnlice 11
on the 4th. by the Sheriff, to be by him 0
escored to the Province line. 0
The Montreal Herald, and the Montreal
Courier both indulge in many bitter remarks
upon this occasion.
It is very natural that the Canadians
sould feel highly incensed at the conduct e
of this man'Grogan. who, as we nuder. r
stand formerly bore a very good character. 0
but of late a had one. Prior to the late
insurrection in Lower Canada, lie lived t
near the Vermont'frontier, but during that 81
insurrection his property was burned, and i
tie himself was driven into the American
lines.-from whkich he sallied, in a spirit of
revenge, to burn and destroy the houses
and property or the Canadians on the oth
er sile of the line. The Canadians have
therefore good cause to detest him. and if
what they allege be true, of which ibtre I
is not mnuch doubt, he certainly deserves
punishinent from somebodv for snch crimes
We are glad indeed ih'at this bone of
contention between the two countries, is

The Island of Cuba.-The followin2
paragraph we copy from the New Orleasis
Bulletin of the 5th instant. We have had
repeated hints of the design of Great Bri- it
tain of getting possession of the Island of '
Cuba. We have no doubt that our gov
