attempting to bring the- question to this poiol we have lost

House of Commons will give thi* measure a fair and enn

in spirit, will settle Ita long differences; and that It ia
nuMified to meet the requirements of the country. I am
told for cert?_n that there are objections against It, but I
?beg to remind th? House of the dbetiuction which we draw
between popular privilege and democratic right?. I am
t*?ld that in this measure there are checks aud counter?
poise?, and that it assumes In this country the existence of

tliat it is a Constitution of cheeks and counterpoises.
I H?-ar, hear ] If the measure, beare some referenc?? to
?'?ting classes In this country, why should we conceal
"from (juraelvca, or omit from our discussions, the fact
tnat this country is a country of classes, and a country
af 1 lasses it will ever remain t [Hear, hear.) What we
Kan? to do is to give every one who is worthy of it a
,k *T*Pt" "n thv' go'ernment of the country by means of
lae elective franchise; but, at the same tim?, we have
aj-en equally anxious to maintain the character of the

snd the sirbipelsgses known as (??-orge lil. ami Prince
of Wales, rather peculiar names for a aeries ?>f islands
forming part of UM poaeeSSlOUS ?f the Russian Bear. It
is notifiable, host ever,that the Russians know tile islands
hy other Beames, sad the one named George III. by Van?
couver, form i na pint of the archipelago generally known

Tnese islands uro formed by inlets of the ocean, ami are
more- properly a narrow strip of land ?-xteuiling for nearly
ino miles along the ?mast of the Pacific, broken by narrow
causeways ami amis of the sea extcmLng in every direc?
The principal settlements are in these Islands, the

which has u population of only i.ono. On tia? islaml ? ailed

m leifty peaks, most of thuin Tide itiii,', one ?>f
them reaching nearly 13,000 fe-e-t m bight, aud
another being little. Inferior In altitude. The
part .?f the mainland'south of Mt. St. hila?,ono of the
vi lciiulc peaks Infore referred to, ami the loftCSt summit
on the continent, Is nowhere more than 33 miles wide.
The islands and coast*, of the mainland have generally
been well explored, but the liiterlor of the country, which
looms up protniiu-ntly on the map, is almost entirely un?
known. Tin-estimated area ??f the whole buntory Is
about 394,1.00 s?(iiare miles. It has an as Singe length aud
breadth of ?100 miles. The longest linee tli.it can be el?,..vu
aere.M the country, from CapePriassSof Waleeon Kchnngs
Straits through tue narrosv strip bordering on British
Columbia and the Pacific (K'?au,to the extreme southern
polnt of the Russian possessions, is 1,600 milos. But It
will be seen from |lta average length ami breadth that
the mass of the.ce.untry Is tolerably compact. From sev?
eral expeditions that have been pn?Ject??d into the inte
rlor, it se-ams that the western part ol tlie territory is ele?
vated and uneven, while the part extending along the
Arctic Ocean Is generally flat. The north coast waa dis?
covered early In the present century, ('apt. Cook having
frevlously, as early us 1778, penetrated as far north as
ey Cape. In It?? Capt. Beechv reached Point Barrow,
and at the same time the lamented Sir John Franklin,
th. n Capt. Franklin, traced the coast from the mouth of
tim Mackeuzie Klvor to Return Reef.
The population e,f Russian America ia about ?0.000, of
whom at least tVi.OUO aro Enq uimaux. Tlie remaining
portion of the inhabitants are Russians, Creoles, Kodiaks
and Aleoots. The principal pursuits and chief de-pt-inl? nee
of the Inhabitants are the fisheries and fur hunting Lit?
tle attention is glveu to agricultural pursuits; but to view
this vast territory aa wholly forbidding and barren Is to fall
Into a grave error. For, its shores being washed by the
warm Pacific atreuni, which ?weeps up from the China Sea
aud breaks near the extreme north-west polut ol the conti
uent, ita atmesphere is toned down t<> the salubrity of
i>oint? on the Atlantic coast which are many degrees fur?
ther from tim pole. Far Inland there In a region of almost
perpetual snow ; but on the coast, and as far inland aa the
breetoa from off the China Boa current may reach and
modify the rigor? of the rJimatc, the land is fruitful and
the country inviting.
The fur product of the country ha? for many yeera been
made a monopoly by the Russian Government, but the
United State?? and lireat Britain succeeded ia obtaining a
lease for the territory from 80? W north latitude to M? U,
and the exclusive privilege of supplying the Knsalane
with agricultural produce and pruvisloua waa granted to
the Hudson's Bay Company. The monopoly of the other
territory remains with the Russian American Couipauy.
It la noticeable that, by the treaties with the United
BUtes and (?rent Brltalu m*te In tiru, the late Ruaaiau
possessions oomprshend sll tho American coast of tho
Pacific, and the atljacent islauds north of ths parallel of
St ' to north latitude, and the whole of the mainland west
of the meridian of 1110 weat lonaitueh?, which passes
through Mount ?St. Ella?. This boundary treaty wa?
accepted aud made binding ?o long ago m 1834.

the front platform and rc<iucsted the driver to r.in tne car
off th?' track, as this was ins only alternative. The effort
to c.imply with lu? rsqaeat failed, and the driver, at
the suggestion of Mr. Pater, unhitched Ins bone,
and. leaving the car on the mick, went up to the Com
l riiy's Mabie. Finding theaieelve? disup. oint.-d, the
rioters cnd( .i\aired to push the car forward, when Mr.
Fuller put donu the brake and stuck to hi? post,although
he wa-* tin? atened by one of the number who had stolen
the non by wini It the switches are tin nul, and held It in

Tlie iolloiviug letter inun the KeUl Gen. llenare?*
gani ia published, addressed to the editor of Th* fitm
(JrUani louts:
New Orleans. March 03, MST.
Dkab tim : You have done mc the honor to call for ni/
ojuuioii relative to the action of the rk?uth under the
Military lull. Having seldom taken any part lu politic?,
I do not feel well ?piaUfied to advise ou ?o momentous a
question; ueverth. less, as the same desire to obtain my
views has been manifested from ?anous quarters. I shall
not shrink from the responsibility of expressing them, in
the hope that they niav tend to compose the public mind,
so Justly alarmed at this moment. In my bumble opinion
we have but one of two things to do?resint or submit.
The first is inadmissible In our painfully e\hatute?l ?oou-dl
tion. Four years of a desperate war have taught us that
the argument of the sword can no louder be resorted t?
by u-t to redress our grievances. We must, tbertft-re,
submit, but with that calm dignity becoming our man?
hood und lost Independence. Having been ovcrpowre.l
m the hit?? struggle we can submit to the harsh aud un?
generous tenus of our couquerors without dishonor, and
we must adopt the least of two evils. A futile resistance
would only cause our rivets to be driven closer.
We must, then, acquiesce or leave the country. But w?
love too dearly the land of our birth to abandou it in ita
hour of sorest triaL We should avoid, also, brin?ging it.
by Internal dissensions, to the condition of poor Mexico
and the unfortunate South American republics.
With n-gard to the suffrage of the freednien, how eve?
objectionable it may be a? present it U au element of
stn?ngf h for the future; if properly handled and directed
we shall defeat our adversaries with their own weapon.
Tho negro ia Southern born ; with a little education and
some property qualifications he can be made to take suf?
ficient interest in the affaire and prosperity of the South
to iusure an intelligent vote. In our future political con?
tests with the North on protective tariff, Internal im?
provements, Ac., the freedmen of the South
will side with the whltesof the South and Weet,
and they will thus contribute to give us back
the influence w-e formerly had in the coun?
cils of the nation. Our people should understand that
the radicals can remain in power only so long aa the pub?
lic excitement is kept up. As with the turbid water? ox
the Mississippi River, the sedimentary particle? are kept
up at the surface, only so long as the waters are in mo?
tion, the Instant the current Is checked these particles
fall to the bottom. Thus it will bo with the radicals when
peace aud virtue are reatored to the country. The conser?
vatives will then take the relus In their own hands, and
the constitutional laws of the land will once more pre valL
