On our own Continent there begin to
be signs indicating that no great period of
time will elapse before Canada will assume
her position as a free country. A bill has
recently passed the Provincial Parliament
providing that all those parties who sus
tained losses by the attempt at Revolution
in 1837 shall receive indemnity at the
hands of Government. The Royalist
party strenuously opposed the measure
but they were out-voted and should they
strive to prevent the provisions of the act
from being carried into execution, there
will be another struggle for independence,
differing from that of 1837, inasmuch as it
will be successful. The French inhabi
tants, encouraged by the example of their
kindred in Europe, have resolved to be
free in fact, even if they be nominal y
under the English rule, and they will suc
ceed. Such, then, is the political aspect of a
few of the nations of the earth. Does it
not seem to indicate that there is abroad a

a military scale.) has been decorated with
the order of St. Andrew, ennobled and
enriched. Some five and thirty years ago,
she came a servant girl to Russia in a
Scotch trader's family, who turned her
adrift in St. Petersburg. A lucky chance
procured her the situation of under-nurse-ry
maid in the Emperor Paul's family,
where she was placed about the person of
the present Emperor to teach him to speak
English. His attachment to her was so
great, that when he married, he raised her
to the head of his nursery establishment,
where she has honorably gone through all

be field marshal, and thus an old Scotch
nurse wriil take equal military rank in Eu
