A yjulaele Forces. Old stories of the war
arc constantly coming to light. It is stated
that when General Bragg was in command

telegraphed to him "to hold the State at all
hazards, stop up the roads, destroy the sup
plies and crush Sherman."' At tho closo or

"Five proclamations and one brigade."
The Coal Qcestiov ix England. Toe
Pall Malt Gazelle has settled the question.
The prosperity, the business, the very exis
tence of England depends upon coal. It
makes our fires, heats our furnaces, gives
light and water to our towns, drives our
manufactories and 6tcamcrs. Without coal
England would lose trade, manufactures and
three-fourths of ber population. It will not
pay to bring oal from the great fields of
America. It would be !ettcr to go to the

the stock diminishes, and the difficulty of

The KreirnociTT Treatt. The Montreal
Transcrlft thinks Canada is gradually get
ting an insight into the views of its neigh
bors on this qncstion, especially since tbe
publication of the report on tbe Rcvcnuo
Commission, and tho report of tho Treaty
prepared by E. H. Derby cf Boston. After
specifying tho principal points of these docu
ments, the Trcnseript says :
" We do not know if tbe Americans mean to
treat us in this business after tbe fashion of the
lower class of shopkeepers, who demand from
their country customers double the price for
their goods tbat tbey intend to accept for them
in the end, after some higgling. lint if they
are in earnest in enacting tbe proposed condi
tions a; tbe prico cf Reciprocity, we must re
gard tbcra both as injurious and insulting to
us. These terms mem that we are to wage a
fiscal war against all other countries, bat espe
cially against hagland, in fivor of American
products and manulactures. as respects every
article we purchase, except those with which
they cannot supply us. We are to suffer all
tbe evils inflicted on them by tbe enormous debt
they have incurred, as the rcsalt of the recent
war with tbe South ; wc are to stifle many of
our growing manufacture in their infancy, by
taxation which our own necessities do not re
quire, and whicb, did we require the sacrifice.
would be the greatest misfortune that com I
overtake ns, as it is theirs. The American Fox
has lest bis tail, and be would persuade his
neighbor that be ought to reduce himself to the
same condition. They are laden with debt, and
tbey must submit to grievous imposts to meet
their liabilities ; we, whose indebtedness is com
paratively trifling, must be forced to impose tbe
same burthens on ourselves. Bat wby centinus
tbe subject ? The Canadian, be he statesman or
private person, wbo would recommend a course
fo suicidal, is only fit for a lunatic asylum.
Oar true policy is competition with the United
States, not tbe commercial union tbey offer u.
The position which we occupy, in contrast with
theirs, is one which, some, years ago, we would
not dare to anticipate ; and if wc cast away the
great advantages to be derived from tbe lower
price which our products cost u. we deserve the
worst punishment tnit may uu to our tot as
the due penalty of our tolly.
There are two redeeming points to be found
in the 1'tports. Both the Commissioners and
Mr.Dcrby recommend tbat a new Treaty of some
sort should be made ; and Mr. Derby proposes
besides that in the meantime the present 1 reaty
should be continued for twelve months, to give
time for new arrangements. But he Accompa
nies tbe concession with conditions which cannot
by any possibility be accepted by us. If the
Government of tbe United States could be ad
vised to adopt tbe suggestion of the continuance
of the Treaty, without the objecticnable condi
tions, or witb a few provisions necessary for
working it satisfactorily to the two countries,
we suspect tbey would discover before long that
tbey had done what was best for tbe true inter
est of all parties interested in this matter.
In another article the Transcript, crying
up the principles of free trade, declares that
"the whole commercial legislation of the
Unitcdstatee Is a disgrace to its intelligence,"
and on economical questions, it says "onr
cousins across the lines seem to be as mad
as a March bare." Xo loubt, whoever
wants to cloc a contract of which John
Boll or his Provincial sonny holds tbe best
end, always seems to tbein demented.
The Provincial Trade returns for 1S&1-5
sliow that almost 01 per cent of all Cana
dian exports went to the United States.
During the long winter Canada's only prac
ticable outlet is through the United States.
If under fech circumstances Canada can
afford to do without reciprocity, the United
States certainly can. and make something by
the stoppaee. To suppose that the present
treaty can bo renewed, or that any treaty
will be made until Canada makes it irorM
oar while to grant one, is utter folly.
Tho St. Albans Mcsstngtr writing on the
Report of the Committee on tbe conduct of
the War, says :
Ferhaps the telecfion of Gen. Meade, at the
time it was made, was the most fortunate thing
tbat conl l have happened to tbe army. Be was
scarcely known, through fame, to the soldiers.
One of bis first orders was fall of the rigor and
steianess of war. Any soldier who disobeyed
any order, on the march or in the fight, might
be shot in his tracks. This order stood in the
place of needed discipline, and it showed the
army that it was under a ccmmanderwbo meant
tobcoleyed at all hazards, and tho very want
of knowledge of tbo man, under the circum
stances, magnified bis power. In a day an ar
my whose attention was distracted by the
thoughts of recent disaster, the offensive ap
proach of its old enemy, and the change of its
chief commander from one not fully trusted to
one not fully known, was turned warward, with
the visage of Mars. It was as if tbat fabled
god had descended to the command. The rank
and file hailed the order as "jnst what we want
ed." Probably no man was shct under it, for
its show of power and unity was enough. The
army fought at Gettysburgh aa it would not
have done under a better krown commander.
With duo deference to the military critic
of the Messenger, wc must ray that most of
the above sounds to us like very absurd talk.
Wo never heard till now, of the order al
luded to, though in a position to know some
thing about such orders at the time,J and if
any such was generally promulgated to the
rank and file, it had nothing to do with the
success, at Gettysburgh. Our armyniarcbcd
as it did, and fought as it did, there, not be
cause the men were afraid of being "shot in
their tracks" by their officers, but be
cause tbey generally appreciated the po
sition. They all knew that Lee had got to
le tchippcJ, or Baltimore and Washington
would fall, and the confederacy be acknowl
edged at once by England and France. Gen.
Meade brought no enthusiasm to the army
with his assumption of the command. How
good a general Msrs would have made m
modern times, we can not say ; butthcarmy
didn't feci as if they bad any God of War
in command. They Aa;ief they had a good
general now; but they were bound to make
a stout fight anthow. Of course they did
better than tbey would have dono if they
had been dispirited by positive knowledge
tbat tbey bad an inefficient bead ; but to
maintain that tbey did better than they
would have done under a better known and
better trusted commander, is of course
nonsense. Our own opinion is that tbe com
manding general had not very much to do,
individually .with our success there. He bad
as little to do with the selection of the
ground for the battle as any man in his ar
my ; no maneuvrcs ordered from headquar
ters, or genius of a single guiding spirit
won the fight. And Gen. Meade's failure to
order an attack on the beaten enemy after
tbclr final repulse, was one of the most mel
ancholy' mistakes CTcr made by mortal man.

Msxican AiraiRS. Important Snicu or
IiOi ls Natoleox. Tiie speech of the Emper
or Louis Napoleon to the French Lfgislatuic,
brought by the last arrival, contains the
following important passage :
In Mexico the Government founded by tbe
will cf the people is being consolidated. The op
position, conquered and dispersed, nave no
longer a chief; the national troops have displty
ed valor, and tbe country baa found guarantees
of order and security which have developed its
resources and raised its commerce with France
alone from '21 to 77 millions. As I expressed
the hope last year tbat our expedition was ap
proaching its termination. 1 am coming to an
understanding witb the Kmperor Maximilian to
fix the epoch for the recall of our troops so that
their return may be effected .without compromis
ing the French interests which we have been
defending in that remote country.
North America, issuing victoriously from a
formidable strug;le, has re-established tho
Union and solemnly proclaimed the abolition of
slavery. France, which forgets no noble page
of htr history, offers up sincere wishes the pros
perity of ibe great American Republic, and for
the maintenance of amicable relations, which
soon will have bad a century's duration.
The emotion produced in the United States by
tbe presence of our troops on tbe Mexican soil
will be pacified by the frankness of our declara
tions. Tbe American people will comprehend
that our expedition, to which wc invited thm.
was net opposed to their interests. Two nations
equally jealous of their independence ought to
avoid every step which might atlact their digni
ty ana their honor.
This seems tolerably definite mid to the
point. Tbat tbe Prrncb troopn arc to leave
Mexico seems plain. Whether Max. will
follow is not so clear. We do not think be
will, at present.

The country at large does not understand,
probably, tbe amount of talent it takes to
fill the position of head of a bureau at
Washington. Certain it is, tbat tbe chief
of the Department of Agriculture u not
proiierly appreciated. I it known that we
bite m that responiblo pou an Iaaac Xew
ton? and that be is a much bigger man,
unless be is mistaken, than Sir Isaac Newton
was? If not, it it known that tbo country
is disgraced by tbe placing and continuance
at tbe bead or tbe Department of Agricul
ture, of a coarse, ignorant, utterly illiterate
man, who fawns on his superiors, and
abuses his subordinates with equal meanness
who cannot write an English sentence, and
whose spelling would consign any Vermont
school boy of ten years old, to a birchen re
freshening? Snch hawever is the case. Ha
goes by tbe name of "old Peanuts"at Wash

quoted and laughed over there as Mrs. Part

tousina roundabout way, but isiindoubtedly
currently reported, is an order by Mr. New

in front so as to hide the ugly ones behind.

If the Commissioner doesn't know that when
he visits the other Departments, it is a signal
for all the clerks to look out for fun, wo will let
him know it. When wo wonder at the small re
sults cf the propagating garden, being a gov
ernment establishment with a most capable
horticulturist in charge of it, we know that tho
fault is not the Superintendent's. Other people
tell us, tbat every pear, grspe.and othtr fruit as
soon as it shows any signs of ripeness, is picked
by tbe Commissioner or by his orders, and sent
to some Senator or other public functionary,and
the whole purposes of tbe garden, that of test
ing and comparing fruits, etc, is perverted.
Almost daily we see tin some paper some ex
pression of the contempt in which the head of
the Department is held, of which, this from the
Yi asbincton correspondence ot a morning paper
will serve as a specimen :
'Amonir the visitors recently at tbe itbite
House was the Commissioner of Agriculture,
who made a brave speech to the President, as
suring him of bis sjnguine expectation lor tbe
early conglomeration of tbe States through the
efforts of the Department of Agriculture:
"The people has laid down their spears and is
beginning to take crunicg books; and although
the fields is wasted and tbe land mourns,"
qnotb Isaac, placing one band patronizingly on
the President s snouider, "yet we wilt distribute
tbe seeds of barmcny, the fruits of concord and
garden eass generally, so as to let the South sco
the effects of good government and the wis lorn
of your administration." Upon concluding his
remarks a copious dew was ocserved to be shed
over the bcarainir countenance of Uncle Isaac;
but the President preserved his usual equani
mity and made no effort at reply. Tho employes
of the department breathed easier upon tbe
Commissioner's report of the effect of his ad
dress upon the President, and their appreciation
of bis abilities experienced no diminution."
Senator Howard on tiie Trial or Trai
tors. The following is a condensed rcpoit
cf the speech of Mr. Howard of Michigan,
in the United States Senate, on Thursday,
on hit resolution recommending the trial of
Jeff. Davis and C. C. Clay by military com
" 'If there be any expectation,' said Mr.
rioward, 'which has been more prevalent than
another among the loyal people of the United
States it is this : That it is doe to our dignity
as a nation and to the obligations we owe to the
constitution of the nation, that there should be
an arraignment and punishment according to
the forms of law of some, at least, of the ring
leaders of the rebellion. I think I do not over
state the truth when I say that this expectation
is not at this time diminished in any degree,
but that unless some bona fide endeavors (ball
be made to execute tbe law upon some at least
of the traitors wbo have done such wrong to the
rovernment of the United States, a feeling of
despondency, not to say di'gust, will be very
strong and pervading throughout the United
Slates. Davis was the President of the rebel
povernmcnt, and, as such, Commander-in-Chief
of its armies and navy. His commands in car
rying on the war were irresistable ; bis will was
tbe origin of every movement in conducting tbe
operations of the rebel armies. It pervaded and
directed every hostile act. lie was tbe monster
cf the rebellion, and gave it animation and acti
vity throughout its whole extent, from the At
lantic to the Rio Grande. His commands dir
ectly or remotely, put in every case effectually
and resDonsivcly, caused every advance of the
rohel force, every attack, every battle, every
death among the Union forces. Bis orders
alone gave energy to every blow, on every field
and alonr a whole line of fifteen hundred miles;
from the East to the West ; from the Gulf of
Mexico to tbe Canadian frontier. It was bis

death of more than a quarter of a million of

Every day in Lent, except Sunday, is a fat
day of obligation on one meaL Custem, how
ever, allows alight collation in the evening, and
a cup ol tea or coHee in tbe morning.
Tbe precept of fasting implies also that of ab

this Diocese at every meal on all the Sundays,
and at the principal meal on Mondays, Tuesdays
and Thursdays of Lent, tho Thursday of the
first and last week being excepted. Fish and
fleeh meat should not be used at the same time.
Tbe use of eggs, butter and cheese is allowed.
provided the rules ot quantity prescribed by
the fast be complied with. Tbe use of lard, in
the place of butter, is allowed in dressing vic
tuals. The Church excuses from tbe obligation of
fasting, but not of abstinence from flesh meat

of the Rosary.
They are also authorized to give Benediction
of the Blessed Sacrament once overy week in

The Fta Trade in Minnesota. A letter
from St. Paul, Minn., in the N. Y. Herald
The trade seems to be monopolized by three
or four large houses in this city, one firm alone
claiming to have exported $150,000 worth; but
there are small dealers scattered all over the
Chief in importance is the mink fur, which is
a source of considerable revenue to the trappers
and traders throughout the northern part of the
State. In former years, when mink was not
considered a fasbiosablo fur and martens were
all tbe rage, skins could be bought for twenty
five or thirty cents each; but now they will
bring from six to seven dollars apiece by the
grcss. The Chippewa Indians are tbe most suc
cessful trappers we have, and monopolize the
lion's share of the fur business, especially since
tbe expulsion of tbe Sioux, with whom they
were ever at war. The bunting grounds are
located in the wildest and most uninhabited
parts of tbe State, chiefly in the neighborhood
of the headwaters of the Mississippi, and along
tbe shores of that chain cf lakes which distin
guishes tne northern boundary cf Minnesota.
Tbe trapping season usually commences in Oc
tober, and continues through the greater part

rather scarce now, are brought in by the Chip

fifteen dollars each. AVolf and raccoon skins,
which are used principally in the manufacture

which are making ,aod to make, the prosper

pillar of strength to the material interests
of our city. Kadi new cog-win rl is also a
wheel in onr car of projicaa. We paid a

w hich will be the main business of the mill.
The arrangements for this are of the most
complete and convenient kind. Six piers,
sunk at distance of 200 feet out into tbe

The following resolutions were unanimous
ly and enthusiastically adopted.
ItetolreJ. That we arc opposed to the Reci
procity Treaty, whicb we cannot but regard as
unfavorable and unjust to the Agricultural in
terest of Vermont, since it allows the British
North American TrovincesJ to unfairly compete
with us, opposing the advantages or low-pricea
lands, labor and light taxation, to our high
priced lands, labor and heavy taxation.

TnxNiw Vt. and Canada Passenger
DrroT. Wr congratulate our travelling
public, or that portion of it which travels
by way of the Vt. Central and Vt. & Canada
roads, on tl.c prospect of a new passenger
depot in Burlington. Hitherto, for twelve
OT fifteen years past, the passengers by tbat
road and the officers or tho road at this
oint, have been compelled to get along for
one long while, with a small dwelling house
turned for the tine being into a depot, and
of late with an open shed, witb the ticket of
fices and waiting room some distance off on
the dock. The day of such makeshifts, we
nre rejoiced to know, is about ended. Tbe
construction of a spacious and convenient
depot has commenced, and will doubtless be
completed the coming season. By the cour
tesy of our townsmen, D. C. Linsley Esq.,
Hoginccr of the Road, and Warren Thayer,
Architect, we hate been permitted to exa
mine tbe plans. The building will be of
brick on a granite foundation. 1 be main
building will bo ol the spacious dimension
of 201 by 8S feet, affording ample room for
three tracks, running through lengthwise
from North to South, with wide platforms.
The main side walls of this building will
to 27 foot high, with long windows in arch
ed reeessea. Fr in each corner rises a small
tower, 11 feet square, which will afford ae
oomodations for closets, and baggage and
express rooms, and will externally give an
ornamental finish to the corners.
On the West side will be the wing for tbe
asscnger rooms, Offices ol the Road, Ac.,
This will have a front of 102 feet, facing the
I jake, and will cocit of a centre protection
40 feet high, Hanked by two towers, each
23 by 34 feet square, and 64 feet in height.
The internal arrangements of this portion
will be exceedingly convenient. The Gen
tlemen's waiting room on tbe lower floor
will have the ample dimensions of 25 by
40 feet ; The ladies' room will be 20 by 2S,
with proper closets and withdrawing room.
Tbe ticket office and Telegraph office will be
conveniently placed on this nur. The 8 km-
above will be devoted to the o&een of the
Road, which will be arranged with closets
and supplied with water, gas, and every
convenience. The buildinr as n whole.
while coiK-trueted for use, and not ornament,
is yet well proportioned, of tasteful design,
and in its ample proportions and fltneaa for
its nes will be pronounced a handsome pub
lic budding, and an ornament to tbe eity,
aa well as a much needed convenience. Its
design does credit to Mr. Thayer, and the
work of construction will doubtlvse tie
thoroughly done, under Mr. Ijnaley's ex
perienced supervision. It will be placed at
the foot of College Street, dote to tbe pres
ent temporary depot, or landing place. Tbe
foundations ate already partly laid, the
underpinning mostly cut, and the working I
piana nearly ready for the carpenters. An
other winter will see it completed, and we
trust in use by an arrangemrnt between the
Roods, as the surfing point of all tbe trains
leaving Burlington in either direction.
