Th? New Nation or Canada. *
Tho formation of the threo British
Canadian Provincos into one nation?
ality, under the titlo of the Domi?
nion of Canada, appears to have
evoked a superfluous amount of sym?
pathy among the New York journals,
because, as they allege, the peoplo of
these provinces were not consulted in
relation to the new Federal Union.
The New York Albion, a conservativo
organ of British opinion1 in this
country, notices these allegations
and utter denies *hem. It says that
the Imperial Act designed to create
the now nation from the provinces J
commences with tho following pre?
amble: "Whereas the provinces of
Ganada, Nova Scotia and New Bruns?
wick have expressed their desire to
form a Federal Union under the
British Crown, for tho purpose of
government and legislation based
upon the principles of the British
Constitution, he it enacted, " Are.
This appears to put to rest the alle?
gations of the Northern journals,
and shows thom to be entirely un?
founded and gratuitous. They aro
thus rebuked by the Albion:
"In behalf, then, of this prospe?
rous, rising, free and eminently for?
tunate peoplo of British North Ame?
rica, we would say to our over-anx?
ious American cousins-'Bestow your
sympathies and counsels upon your
own disfranchised, disheartened and
desponding countrymen, -who are
now lying prostrate at the feet of
military commanders-whoso word is
law, 'till another order is issued from
these headquarters.' Confer your
criticisms upon your own self-willed
despots of high places in your own
land; but forbear further mis-state?
ments in reference to your neigh?
bors, until yon can, at least, compre?
hend the spirit of freedom and good
government. Tho very foundation
of these cherished liberties the
Northern Provinces are dotermiued
to perpetuate on this contiuont, oud
before the close of the present cen?
tury, there may possibly be other
communities on this continent de?
sirous of joining tho stable and well
govorned Dominiou of Canada.' "
This is a stinging rebuke to those
political agitators who havo thus far
delayed ino reconstruction of the
American Union. They aro not loth
to waste their sympathy upon the
people of Canada, or lavish it on thc
dwellers of Crete, or any other fo?
reign country upon which buueombo
resolutions may be put forth, while
they neglect the more important
duty of giving little of it to the
Southern States, formerly their
equals in tho Union.
Tho prediction of tho Albion about
other communities being desirous of
joiuing the stable and well-governed
Dominion of Cauada, we regard as
merely part aud parcel of tho rebuke
which it felt justified in administer?
ing to the American journals referred
to. Tho people of the present ex?
cluded States will be perfectly con?
tented to be reconstructed under tho
Constitution of the United States,
aud restored to that Union framed
and bequeathed to them by those who
threw off tho British rule in 177G. If
wisdom, justice aud patriotism, there?
fore, rule the councils of this Go?
vernment, aud the South be restored
to her rights and privileges therein,
hor citizens, nor tho citizens of any
other section of this country, would
seek to form no new alliances or fedo
rative union with any other Govern?
ment, no matter how stablo or well
governed. Givo us back the Uniou
of tho American fathers-the Consti?
tution as it came from beneath their
hands and seals, aud no Government
on earth could seduce an American
citizen to join his fortunes with it.
The subject thus incidentally
brought to thoir notice should receive
the earnest consideration of tho Ame?
rican peoplo, especially that portion
of them who havo tho strength and
iufluenco to control natioual legisla?
tion. Here, at tho South, wo are
powerless; in tho North, they can, at
tho ballot box, repudiate the party
and its politiciau.s that have brought
tho Union to its present stntc of dis?
traction. Had they douo so a year
or two ago, the rebuking taunt of thc
British orgau would not havo been
deserved, nor would it have been
giveu. Let them do so now, and let
wiso and patriotic counsels prevail,
and tho American Uuion will bc as
"stablo" and as "well-governed" as
any nation on tho faco of the earth.
Wc will not look at tho other sido of

The Evansville (Indiana) Daily
Sentinel, one of whose editors was an
officer in tho Federal army during the
war, writes a double-leaded leader in
favor of Gem Robert E. Lee for the

to tho worth o* ?,ao leader of the
armies of the late Confederacy, wo

WEST POINT-SOUTHEHX BOYS
AHEAT>.-We learn a remarkable fact
from the New York Times, of the Otb
inst., and it is this: That of the class
just graduating at West Point, overy
ono of the first six scholars is from
tho South. Ruffner, of Virginia,
leads, and .Scars, of Virginia, is third;
then, there are Mallory, of Alabama,
Rogers and Haupt, of Georgia, and
Grffith, of North Carolina. In tin
next six, there are three Tenuessec
ans-Pitman, Maguire and Bell
while Turtle, of Massachusetts, Greer,
of Pennsylvania, und Heiutzelman, at
large, occupy thc other three places.
Thus all of the first six and nine of
the first twelve places on the scale of
general merit, aro taken this year by
men appointed from the South. This
is the first time in the history of the
Military Academy when the Southern
States have swept oft' all tho honors.
An? ron THE SOUTH.-It is stated
that the subscribers to the English
cotton famine fund desire to appro?
priate their surplus funds, amounting
to tho large sum of $000,000, in gold,
to the relief of the Southern States
of the American Union. It is known
but a small portion of the funds
would ever be claimed by the sub?
scribers under any circumstances,
and, therefore, it is not likely that
there will be any difficulty in the way
of its suggested application. It would
bo a magnificent donation. The Li?
verpool American says:
"There may be some legal obsta?
cles to its immediato use for this pur?
pose; but, ns tho character of the
suffering will admit of no delay, it
has been proposed to send forward a
portion now, and retain a part until
such time as might be fixed for its

urgent, no people more necessitous

ARREST AND ESCAPE.-A young
man, who gave his nama as John W.
Davis, and claimed to be a native of
Camden, but recently a resident of
Charlotte, N. C., was arrested at this
place, Inst week, by a gentleman from
Pineville, N. C., upon the charge of
theft. As wo understand it, a reward
of 850 was offered for his arrest, and
the thief, suspecting, left tho railroad
line, and was endeavoring to elude
capture by cutting across thc coun?
try. Upon being taken be foro a
magistrate and searched, a Indies'
pocket-book and note-described in
the reward-was found upon his per?
son, but no money. Our jail being

MURDER-About two weeks ago,
sonic concern was excited by the dis?
appearance of a negro boy, living
with a Mr. Stewart, on tho East side
of tho Catawba River, in this District.
Ihccntly, a letter was put in circula?
tion, purporting to have been re?
ceived from Columbia, S. C., stating j
that tho missing boy had been shot
in that place, while attempting to
steal some property. The circum?
stances aroused suspicion, nnd the
colored niau who pretended to have
received tho letter was at once appre?
hended. In his examination before a
magistrate, he denied, for awhile, any
knowledge of the missing boy; but
afterwards acknowledged that buhad
been murdered by two other negroes
on Friday night, the 24th of May,
who knocked bim in the head with
an axe, aud that tho body had been

f Yorkville Enquirer.
How IT WORKS IN TENNESSEE.-Tho
Memphis Avalanche, of last Friday,
contains some startling developments.
Several colored men. whose vera- j
city will not be questioned by any I
Brownlowite iu Memphis, have di- !
rected our attention to a secret or- '
ganization that has been storied by
white Brownlowites among thc colored
people of this city.
The organization is ostensibly for
benevolent purposes; but, in ono of ,
its degrees, it requires the iuitinted |
colored man to tnko a fearful oath to
murder those who abandon its ranks
and oppose Brownlowism. Perhaps
tho scoundrols who require colored
men to utter such bloody impreca?
tions do not really intend to have
negroes murder those othor blacks,
who, having been drawn into such
secret councils, are shocked, and
abandon them; but the oaths aro to
inspire terror, and may culminate in
tho dupes of such machinations im?
bruing their hands in the blood of
their fellows. If it does so, tho most
guilty murderers will be the white
men who inspiro the atrocious oaths.

OLEBUN "Gora BAC&" ON THE NS
ono.-The Cleveland Herald, of yes?
terday-, has the following, which
indicates that the "blaok-and-tan"
element is becoming too rank oven
for that nest of Cufly's idolaters:
When Conductor Bruce, of the
Cleveland and Pittsburg Railroad,
reached a station Home dis nico be?
yond tho limits of tho city, yester?
day morning, ho found a li 11 lo colored
girl among his passengers, without a
ticket, who said she was going to
Washington. She claimed to have
been brought from that city by a gen?
tleman living in Oberlin, in which
place sho has lived over a year, and
alleged that her baggage had boen
sent on to Washington by the trus?
tees of tho township in which Ober?
lin is located. The trustees, she said,
stated there were too many colored
people in Oberlin now, and that they
were determined to weed out nil who
were not able or have no disposition
to take care of themselves, remarking
that sho was ono of tho olass first
nnmed. Mr. Bruce transferred the
girl to Conductor Jenkins' train,
bound North, at Alliance. Mr. Jen?
kins delivered the "prisoner" to a
negro wenc1' from Oberlin, who hap?
pened to bo in the depot upon the
arrival of thc train. Thc child is one
of more than ordinary intelligence,
and remarked, when informed that
she must go back, that sho would go
by way of Buffalo, a route on which
she was acquainted with all the con?
ductors, and one on which she would

name as Josephine Sister Lillie Do

tinguished military officer as that of
SILVEI: CHALICE RECOVERED.-Thc
Charleston Mercury says:
During the siege of Charleston, a
quantity of pinte, the church re?
cords and other property belonging
to St. Michael's Church, in this city,
were sent up to Columbia, and stored
there in the vaults of the Bank of
Charleston for safe-keeping. After
the burning of Columbia, no trace of
any of tho valuables belonging to the
church could be found, and it was
with sadness assumed that they had
been altogether destroyed in the ter?
rible fire. A few days ago, however,
tho Rev. P. T. Keith, the pastor of
tho church, received a letter from the
Hon. Alex. Wakefield Bradford, in
which it was stated that the writer
had seen in a pawn-broker's shop, in
New York, a silver chalice, which, by
tho inscription, belonged to St. Mi?
chael's Church, Charleston. This
letter was properly acknowledged,
and on yesterday Mr. Keith received
thc chalice by the Southern Express
Tho chalice, which has now been
returned to its ecclesiastical home,
was presented to the church in 1702,
by Gov. Boone, who in that year
succeeded Gov. Bull. It bears in

PKICEOFNEW WHEAT.-The Rome,
(Ga.) Courier speaks of the prospect
for a heavy wheat crop in that sec?

Although the present price of wheat
is from $2.25 to $3.00, yet tho im?
pression prevails that the now crop
will open at only about $2.00.

ments aro being made for money to

If there is any city in the United
States in which the negroes and tho
radicals ought to be allowed full
sway, Washington is the one. Con?
gress is directly responsible for the
proper government of that place,
and tho laws which have made ne?
groes equal, in respect of political
rights, with white men. ought to
have a fair trial where Congress eau
witness their operation. Hence, we
do not chroniclo the radical and
negro success in that city on Monday
with any feeling of mortification.
TBTJTH OF HISTORY.-A Northern
historian has written a book giving a
full account of a speech made by
Jefferson Davis at tho Nashville Dis?
union Convention, how it was re?
ceived, etc. It is a fact that Mr.
Davis was not a member of that Con?
vention, and during its session was
quietly attending to his official duties
at Washington. Is there auy limit
to radical meanness and mendacity?
The English authorities have re?

The New York Independent thinks
that "previous to tho rebellion" the
students at West Point "were edu?
cated to hate the flag." As tho New
York Tribune was largely patronized
by tho professors, the Independent
must allude to Greeley's poem, "Tear
Down the Flaunting Lie," etc.
A Now York company has entered
upon tho manufactur? of what is
called "peat coal," from tho peat of
the Dismal Swamp. The manufac?
tur?is say that this fuel ia about as
cheap us anthracite coal, and that it
burns very bountifully, and produces
the smallest amount of ashes.
WHAT Mom: OAK WE Do?--The I
New York Sun says: i
"If .it may be said with truth that
no race of suddenly emancipated
bondmen ever exhibited more mode?
ration ya the enjoyment of liberty
than the Southern slaves, it may be
said, with equal truth, that no racoof
slaveholders, or of property holders
of any kind, ever exhibited more re?
signation and equanimity under gi?
gantic losses than tho former slave?
owners of the South." They lost
threo thousand millions of dollars at
ono blow; but they legalized tho abo?
lition of slavery, adapted their legis?
lation to the new order of things,
secured to the freedmen every right
of person and property, gave tho
negro judicial protection and reli?
gious instruction, and "performed
with fidolity all their obligations to
tho General Gonernnieut."
"If," says tho Sun, "the South has
sinned, has it not suffered? If it has
not given proof, iu its thorough con?
formity to changed relations, that it
has renewed 'its allegiance to thc
Union in good faith, what proof will
bc sufficient? Stripped of three thou?
sand millions of property, it has con?
firmed tho act by which it was bank?
rupted, and gone to work with cheer?
ful industry to assist iu paying tho
debt which was incurred iu its own
overthrow. If snoba people nro not
fit to bo trusted now, they will never
be fit to bo trusted. Must suspicion,
exclusion and confiscation bo thc per?
petual penalties upon a section whoso
liberties .ire inseparable from our
owu, and upon whose industry tho
future prosperity of the whole coun?
try is largely dependent?"
The Montgomery Mail, in alluding
to a proposition to send Dick Bus teed
to tho United States Senate, says:
"As for toadying such a man be
causo be occupies a seat upon tho
bench, or because be may possibly
provo recreant to tho party which
placed him in office, such a thing is
unbecoming the dignity of Southern
people. Thc man who would betray
ono party would betray another.
"If wo cannot find good, consist?
ent, honorable Southern men who

States Congress, let us elect to tho
Senate such men as Millard Fillmore,
Franklin Pierce, Robert C. Win?
throp, Erastus Brooks, John P.
Stockton, Daniel W. Voorhecs or S.
S. Cox. It is not necessary that the
representatives elected by Alabama to
tho United States Congress should
bo citizens of Alabama. The Consti?
tution of tho United States merely
requires that they should bo citizens
of tho United States. Rather than
elect such meo as S wayne and Bus
teed, (Gen. Swayne will please pardon
tho connection,) who aro merely do?
miciled here, and aro not of us, let
us elect straight-out Constitutional
Union men, wherever thoy may be

Fillmore and Franklin Pierce as can?
didates for the United States Senate
from Alabama, in tho event of 're

On arriving at the vdaco of execu?
