Opinions of a. Canada. Paper.
Tho Montreal (Canada) Neus, com?
menting on the proposition to make
IEL. E. Lee Governor of Virginia, has
the following reflections:
The persistencv with -which the
organs of Southern opinion dilute,
upon the glorious incidents of the
campaign, the intense interest with I
which the actors in those stirring
scenes are regarded, in spite of the
abounding miseries entailed by the
war upon the Southern people, give
evidence of a strength and continuity
in the national sentiment which
ought to extort the admiration rather
than the hatred of their conquerors,
and quicken the exercise of a mag?
nanimity which has not yet charac?
terized the acts of the American
Government or people.
The policy of the North, viewed in
either-.-a political or social aspect,
cannot fail, sooner or later, to rekin?
dle the elements of strife; and it is
hard to say what combinations the
South may not be enabled to form,
should Northern hatred again force
them to blows. Daily subjected to
humiliations more disastrous than
defeat, denied the aid which a mag?
nanimous conqueror never refuses to
a fallen enemy, stung to tho quick at
being placed on un equality with the
freedmen, erstwhile bound to them
as much by ties of affection and gra?
titud?1 as by the rights of proprietor?
ship, forced into the living death of
a political union which they hate,
and which now deprives them ->f all
participation in the government of
the common country, it may indeed
be regarded as inevitable that they
will seek again to throw oft* the in
intoleruble yoke, and trust to the
arbitrament of battle to relieve thom
from Northern domination. With
the Franco-Mexican imbroglio still un?
settled-the Monroe doctrine reite?
rated by the American press, Govern?
ment and people-Northern diplo?
macy conspicuous for an arrogant
dictation unknown in the modern
history of States, and a studied vio?
lation of the principles of that neu?
trality of which the American Go?
vernment constitutes itself the sole
judge and interpreter-the European
powers would view a renewal of the
rebellion with widely different sensa?
tions than were evoked by a%truggle
involving the extinction of an insti?
tution repugnant to civilization. If
the North were wise-if the Govern?
ment and people were possessed of
but an ordinary amount ot prudence
and foresight, they would cease all
attempts at repression, withdraw the
obnoxious constitutional amendment,
and, by a kind aud conciliatory
policy, bring back the loyal allegiance
of the States lately in arms against
her. By neglecting to do this, she
will render herself responsible for
fresh disasters; and iu the present
temper of both North and South and
the great European powers, there are
elements of embroilment which might
speedily burst into a flame, and en?
velop Anglo-Saxon civilization in,
perhaps, a common glory and a coin
MUST BEAK IT.-An indignant
planter tells tho Mississippi Index
something of his experience with
freelmen as laborers. "If Caesar,"
say she, "complains of a slight pain

WAS WASHINGTON A REBEL?-Thc I
Richmond Times, iu an editorial on j
tho anniversary of Washington's j
birth-day, makes thc; following enu?
meration of tho wrongs and outrages
which led to the rebellion iu 177G:
1. Keeping in the colonies, in the
time of peace, standing armies.
2. Reudering the military inde?
pendent of and superior to the civil
3. Imposing taxes without allowing
4. Tlie depriving of the colonists
of the benefit of trial by jury.
5. For suspending Colonial Legis?
G. In inciting insurrection, likely
to result in an undistinguished de?
struction of all ages, sexes and condi?
7. Abdicating Government, by de?
claring us out of the protection of
the mother country.
8. Quartering large bodies of armed
troops on the colonists.
9. Sending into the colonies swarms
of officers to collect taxes and oppress
10. Befusing to pass proper laws
for large districts of people, unless
they would relinquish the right of
11. Obstructing and interfering
with the judiciary, thus denying just?
12. Interfering with legislative bo?
dies, and dissolving them for op?
posing, with manly firmness, inva?
sions of the rights of the people.
13. Protecting military officers by
mock trials, for olt'euces which they
have committed against the colonists.
Adds the Times:
Wei make these curious extracts
from a (plaint and almost forgotten
document, which is called the "De?
claration of Independence."
A TEXAS FACTOKV.-The Houston
"The Eureka Mills are now turn?
ing out some 250 yards of cloth
(denims, drills and plaids) daily, and
will, within ten days or two weeks,
have twenty looms running, which
will give a daily product of sonn; 500
or GOO yards. We learn that the
company have ordered twenty more
looms, and will look for them by the
1st of April, when they will order
still thirty more, which will be all
contemplated in the present arrange?
ment of the building, machinery, ?fcc.
With seventy looms, making 2,000
yards of cloth per day, the mills at
once take rank as muong the most
important in the State.
? "Some apprehensions were felt
that there might be a difficulty in
finding operatives. Such bas not,
however, been the case. Judge Mun?
ger, the manager, informs us that per?
sons who have never seen a factory
before, speedily become skilled in thc
management of machinery, and as
fast as he can get his looms ready,
operatives who have learned theil
management, stand ready to take
their place before them."
If it is true that outside pressure has
so far changed the opinion held bj
the House two weeks ago, says tin
Ti'ibune, that the friends of the bank
rupt bill are even afraid to move ?
committee of conference, the fact i:
not creditable to Congress. Tin
bankrupt bill is indispensable to i
healthy condition of national busi
ness; its necessity has been demon
strated again and again, and as; sited
by the majority of the Horse. Tba
a few merchants who are afraid o
losing their bad debts by ii. pussagi
should have the power to threaten it
defeat, would be a startling proof o
the weakness of the legislato/s, am
their inability to form an opir.ion ii
the Hall of Representative?, whicl
cannot be changed bj tvalk inti
the lobby. The country insists tba
the bankrupt bill shall be passet
wi; hout delay.

FIFTEEN YEAHS AGO AND NOW.
Fifteen years ago, HOSTETTER'S STO?
MACH RITTERS was struggling into no?
tice against tho prejudices which every?
thing new, however excellent, is doomed
To-day, it stands at the head of all thc
tonic and alterative preparations in exist?
ence. Its celebrity has evoked many imi?
tations, but no rivals. Physicians pro?
nounce it the only safe stimulant, that has
ever been introduced into the sick cham?
ber. In thc hospitals of the army and
navy, the surgeons lind it the very best
tonic for convalescents, and report it as
invaluable for sustaining the vigor ol
troops on the march, as a remedy for
scurvy and all scorbutic affections, and as
tho only specific for sea-sickness. Califor?
nia and Australia have- emp' atically en?
dorsed it as thc Miner's Medicino )?ir ex?
cellence, and in Spanish America and a!
the tropical climates, it is considered th?
only reliable antidote to epidemic fever.
There is no mystery about the causes o
its success. It is the only s to m ac ic am
alterative in which arc combined the gram
requisites of a mild, pure and unvitiatec
vegetable stimulant, witli the finest selec
tion of tonic, anti-bilious, anti-scorbutic
aperient and depurativo herbs, plants
roots and barks that have ever been inter
mixed in a medicinal preparation.
lt is also proper to state that the bitter:
are sold exclusively in glass, anil never
under any circumstances, by the gallon oi
tin; barrel. Impostors and imitators an
abroad, and the only safeguard the publii
has against them is to see that the Ritter
they Duy bear the engraved label and not
of band of Messrs. Hostotter * Smith, am
tho Government stamp over the cork o
the bottle. Feb 27 +0
