Saturday Morning, Mav 22, 1869.
ifomiuiou Anairs.
The St. John Telegraph does not treat the
Nova Scotians very generously, and says that
New Brunswick wants nothing to do with
them. It says they have kept up agitation
as long as they could, and now have got to
back down hopelessly before the action of
Howe and others. We think the Telegraph
does not appreciate, or is not willing to ack
knowledge, the extent of feeling of doubt as
to the Dominion government, which really
exists. But it does not belong to us to give
advice, although we may “guess” that it is
“pressing things” too strongly for ultimate
peace and unity.
The Globe (of the same city) reviews the
statement of Mr. Rose as to the finances
and says the people now begin to see “the
straits to which tbe government is driven.”
In the midst of political news we have ad
vices of a busin ess enteVprise that is of some
importance. A new screw steamer has been
purchased and put on the route from St.
Stephen, St. Andrews and St. John. This
is an important adjunct of the mutual trade
of these points.
The Montreal Witness, in reviewing the
new government banking bill, arrives at con
clusions not very flattering. It says: “If
the government has nothing to do in order to
pay a debt or engage in some new enterprise
but to issue more paper money, the tempta
tion to do so will always be strong, and the
deposit of specie, to render tbe circulation
safe, would very possibly prove inadequate to
the demand for it. Iu this case, either specie
payments must be suspended by law or, the
government must fail outright. These are
not pleasant alternatives.”
There is great commotion in political and
financial circles over this scheiSe. It would
seem that the majority of the banking asso
ciations are against it, and organized opposi
tion is being made in some quarters.
The Toronto Globe had a long and power
ful article on this scheme a few days ago and
closes as follows: “But all these objections to
the government banking schemes are thrown
into comparative unimportance, when we
think of the danger that would be incurred
from placing the currency, and all the indus
trial, financial, and commercial interests of
■ the Dominion on the rickety foundation of a
government paper security.”
But it seems that Mr. Rose’s other enor
mity, the proposition to fix tbe rate of in
terest, created nearly as much hostility and
strengthened the opposition greatly. The
same paper thus fires at the new target: “It
is such a measure as no Canadian government
ever before proposed. It is a weak imitation of
the old usury laws which were lepealed years
ago with great advantage, and with tbe sup
port of at least one member of the present
administration. It is a step back to a kind
of legislation which belonged to a past age.
It is a flying in the face of all tbe daws of
political economy and of all established busi
ness principles. And the provoking thing
about the business is that the crusade, in fa
vor of exploped theories and prejudices, is
led by men who know better, and who must
be ashamed of what they are doing.”
Making and Mending Blinds Once Mare.
A German philosopher once said, “There
are two things that strike me dumb—the
starry firmament (palpably infinite) and the
sense of right and wroog in man.” If this
philosopher Ij'iTil fc— -—1 -— 1 a]—
Saw ine immense amount of money and la
bor that have been expended by our farmers
during the last half century—to go no further
back—in making and repairing our public
highways, the thing would strike him dumb,
for ft would be impossible for him or any oth
er sensible man to reconcile such an enor
mous expenditure with good sense and judg
ment which reasonable beings are supposed
to possess. On a large portion of our roads
about the same amount of labor has to be
expended every year to keep them safe for
travelers and save the towns from such
heavy verdicts as our juries are now in the
habit of rendering against them, even for
very slight defects. And this vast amount ol
expenditure does not save our towns from
heavy verdicts and expensive lawsuits, as the
records of our court clearly show all over the
State, and in fact all over New England.
We read in the newspaper records of court
proceedings all over the country of such law
suits and verdicts. It has become almost im
possible for a town—to say nothing of other
corporations—to make a successful defence to
a suit for damages when a person or his horse
or carriage becomes injured through a defect
in a public highway, however slight that de
fect may be. If .one is injured in his person
by reason of such defect he at once sees a
chance to make some money, and applies to
his lawyer, who loves heavy verdicts for his
client and large fees for himself. And in
what cases can he so readily obtain them as
in cases against towns for defects in then
roads ? When a person injured commences
such a lawsuit to recover damages, the inju
ries he has received, however slight they may
have been at first, are hugely magnified; his
arm is put into a sling although not a bone is
broken; he. walks lame, more so than when
his leg was first injured, if injured at all, and
he stoops over with a lame back, and “acts
well his part.” .
The truth is, if this finesse continues and
this mental epidemic among juries does not
cease, we do not see how towns can save
themselves from these heavy verdicts and
this expensive litigation unless they make
castiron roads with the iron so thick that a
hole canuot be made in them except by some
powerful instrument. We frankly confess
our decided opposition to many of these law
suits, but how can they be avoided if the
present system of making and repairing roads
is not changed and a revolution in public
opinion upon this subject does not take place ?
If the present system still continues, holes
will be made in the roads, ruts will make
their appearance, gullies will be washed out,
and little stones will stick up a few inches
above the surface at certain seasons of the
year.
somethtng must be done; a new leaf must
be turned over; new laws must be enacted; a
new system adopted, otherwise the making
and repairing our highways must continue,
as it has too long continued, a heavy draw
back upon the industry of the country. On
many of our roads—and we may safely say
on most of them—money and labor have
been expended in repairs lrom year to year
to make them now a solid bed of gravel and
rock and place them in a condition that would
defy floods, or any convulsion short of an
earthquake.. Such a condition would place
them beyond the Yeach of lawyers and their
clients, and smashed up carriages, broken
limbs, lame backs, crooked spines, “tatty de.
generation,” diseased livers and even chrouic
rheumatism might be less than they appear
to be at the present time.
The ftenefit of such public roads as the la
bor already expended might have made would
be very great, even greater than we dream of.
Carriages would last longer, horses would
wear longer and draw heavier loads, and a
vast deal of labor saved every way. The ex
pense of taking care of such roads wou'd be
be comparatively trifling; and enormous ver
dicts against towns and expensive lawsuits
would only exist in the memory of those who
have suffered from them, or on the records of
our courts.
In Earope they manage these things vastly
better than we do. Gov, Claflin of Massa
chusetts in his message to the Legislature
last January alluded to the unfavorable con
trast that is made by travellers, between the
roads of his own State and those in European
countries, and suggested that the science of
road-making ought to have a prominent place
in the course of study at the State agricultur
al College. The suggestion is a good one; for
it seems we arc sadly deficient insuchscience,
else we should have had better roads long ago
'There is an abundance of materials for mak j
ing good, substantial roads all over our State.
And all they need are proper manifestation
and change of position. But those who travel
in the country about this time or a little later
—say “after planting”—will see gangs of meD
and oxen on our principal roads, plowing
them up, filling ruts and holes, repairing cul
verts, blasting rocks, shoveling and hoeing
And scraping. They will do so much hard
work, but alas! they will be compelled to do
the same thing next spring.

THE JUDICIAL FASHIONS.
The court is running with one trial jury,
which is getting to be quite the fashion. This •
Court Is fashionable in another respect, in
not having cases ready for trial the first days
of the term. More assignments are made
for the second week than can be tried.
ANCIENT KECOBD8.
Old York claims the moat ancient judicial
records iu America, having a'continuous set
from 1632 to the present time. Mi. McAr
thur, the oldest member of the bar, an fait in
ancient statistics, says that Plymouth con
tests this claim, on She strength of a single
case recorded by the Register of deeds in
1627; but Mr. M. insists that the proper
honor for ancieut jucicial records is with
York. The first four volumes have been cop
ied and the copies placed in the archives at
Augusta. Stknob.
The ex-Confederates are quarreling over
their own war history. This is unfortunate,
because the internal affairs of the Confederacy
present a most interesting historical study,
and are wrapped in great obscurity. It they
are to have no xporo reliable chronicler than
Mr. Pollard, the world will always be obliged
to content itself with one side of the story of
the rebellion.. Mr. Pollard m kis new book
speaks of Henry 8. Foote’s peace movemsnts
in the Confederate Congress pa inspired by
Jefferson Davis, with whom Foote is repre
sented to have been at the time on terms of
intimaoy. Mr. Fcote takes occasion to de
. nmi.i'a t.hgSA atatflmenf. o. In —
particular. He quarreled with Davis in 1851,
in the United States Senate, and a reconcilia
tion never took place. In the Confederal*
Congress Foote never ceased to offer a vigor

peace resolutions were offered without the
knowledge of either the President or Cabinet
