As we cannot go into the principles of public
expenditure as largely as we should wish, we will
only add one example to jow what the represen
tatives uf an industrious and tfirilty people can do,
with hardly a thought about the matter, and with
out any scruple as to the proper line between pub
lic and private expenditure. The House of Com
mons has recently sanctioned a survey for Scot
land on the scale of 5 feet a mile, and it is now
bein carried on with contour lines every 25 yards.
It will give every Scoth proprietor, at the public
expense, a better map of his 1,000 or 2,000 acres
of moor than is possessed by any English gentle
man who has not gone to great expense for such
a purpose. It will faithfully record an inanite va
riety of crags, depressions, gulleys, water-channels,
scrubs, tufts, &.c, only visited by wild game,
and an occasional sportsman in pursuit cf them.
A great number of the objects to be recorded.
such as huts, fences, and roads, are in the processor
destruction, anu win soon only survive on the map.
It will be more than a third of a mile long, and
will cover about 40 acres. Of course, it will sus
pend all private surveying in Scotland. One pro
prietor, by the moderate payment of 1.500., has
obtained an immediate application of the act to
his ovn estate, so barren and thinly peopled as to
make a survey almost ridiculous ; and it is estimat
ed that the survey of this estate alone will cost
the public 35,000. The survey of all Scotland
will not be completed in less than thirty years, and
will cost more than a million. Over thousands of
acres it will cost more thin the value of the land..
To the public at laige, it will be perfectly useless;,
it cannot be comprehended in any portfolio or
book; and, even supposing the tourist to obtain a
few sheets, he would find that at the ordinary rate
of posting, he passed in half an hour out of one
sheet into another. The map made can never bo
homogeneous; its several portions will not be con
temporary; one portion will represent the country
a3 it is in 1857, and another as it will be in 1880.
It will contain villages, homesteads, paths, and
other features that no longer exist, and will give
in their native savageness, districts which before
the completion of the map will be covered with
human habitations. We give this as an example
of what the British House of Commons did the
other day, and may do again any day. It is never
safe from finincial escapades of the most costlv
character, and the more it saves by pinching and
paring and cutting down salaries already beggarly
enough, the more ready is it at any hour to fling
away the ten years candle ends and cheese par
ings into some such abyss as this survey of Scotland.
While the seamen of the Pearl were on shore last
Wednesday, enjoying that relaxation from ship dis
cipline which the sailor so appreciates, we were not a
little amused at seeing them make an onslaught on &
Chinaman's cake stand, and after " carrying in gallant
style" the entire stock of questionable delicacies, the
spokesman of the party coolly remarked, "John, we
are now at war with your nation, d'ye see. We have
made a fair prize of you, and when peace is declared,
we'll settle." Our Chinese friend seemed to think dis
cretion was the better part of valor, though like the
Irishman's parrot, he no doubt kept up a d 1 cf a.
thinking. In justice to Jack we will say that he re
turned and paid fb.' the cakes. We have often heard
tell of " dead marines," bat never saw the thing so near
ly exemplified as one day this week, when the liberty
men " of the man-of-war bought a new coffin from a
carpenter's shop, in which they deposited the " lob
sters " who had taken refreshments until they were
overtaken, and had to be undertaken to the boat.
The seaman who was the unfortunate cause of the
death of Peter Lanehan, on board the whale-ship
Adeline last month, is now in confinement in the Fort,
and will be sent to San Francisco in the Yankee ftr
trial, together with the fitnesses in the case
