j besntiful ard spirited horses, which seemed
ond of the exercise which they were about to nn

The Que bickers Anti- Progressionists?Appearance of
the dtp?The Canadian Parliament?Tht Falls
of Lorette, f(. j
Having spent several days in this city, now the J
capital of the Canadae, I thought yon would like to
bear something from this part of the American
continent, and to know the impressions made upon
the mind of a stranger on his first visit to the Csna
das. Although I had read mnch abort Lower Ca
nada and knew something ef its geographical posi
tion, yet 1 had not formed an adequate idea of the
place or of the people inhabiting it. I actually sup
posed that from its near locality to the States,
the people bad imbibed something of the spirit o*.
progression and the energy that characterize the
inhabitants of tbe States ; bat I soon ascertained
that I was entirely ignorant in relation to them,
and tbat in every important particular they were
at least one century behind the States. In edacation
" industry, atonement, luxury, business tact and
taleLt, and in energy of character, they bear no
comparison to tbe people of the States. Tne men
abhough universally civil in their deportment, ye
ate excessively indolent as a general rule, and
impose the heaviest manual labor upon tbe female
portion of the inhabitants. I bad the curiosity to
stand in the street and watch the operation of a
wool sawyer engaged iu sawing a load of wood ; and
to my aatonbhment I found that it required the
labor cf three parsons to perform the operation?
two persons to work the saw, one at each end, and
a third to hold the st-ck of wood steady on the buck.
1 Toe tame wo'k would bave been performed in the
city of New York by one man, in naif the time occu
pied by these three ^ersins.
Tbe city has mnch ttie appearance of ancient cities,
I have seen represented in panoramic views. The
sioewalks are made of beams of wood about th ee
inches tbick and ten inches wide, laid lengthwise
ficm the housee to the enrb stores. The streets
are paved, bo me with wooden blocks, some with
beams tbe same as the sidewalks, some with stones
laid on the edge, similar to the pavement laid in the
B<>wery some years since as an experiment, and
same are macadaxized. I have not Been such a
thing as a street sweeper since I came here, sod I
believe they depend entirely npon Dame Nature for
tbe luxury of clean streets. Tue streets aa a general
rule are veiy nanow, and such a thing aa a capa
cious stoop to ornaintnt the front of their dwellings
is not known here.
? few evenings since I attended a sitting of
Parliament. The Speaker evidently endeavored to
impress the assembly with a degree of awe, and
their proceedings were coniuctid with a great deal
of nro riety, but' in point of talent they are below
meuiocrity, not even comparing with our Board of
Beyond Quebec, for the space of several
miles,' is a beautiful fertile plain tbat only
it quires Yankee enterprise and industry to
make It one of the most desirable and profit
able pkces of land in North America. About
ten and a half miles from the city ie tne Indian vil
lage of Lorette, through which runs the river St.
Cbailes. For romantic and majestic scenery I think
sue falls of Lorette surpass anything of the kind
I "have ever seen. If Lorette falls were situated
within the Stares tbey womd be looked Ujion as a mine
of gold. Tbey have s volume of water sufficient to
operate fifty mills, which could be erected at a
tufting expense, and yet there are but two troll-*
eieoted there, and they are owued by a Ysa
kee, Mr. Km sell, the proprietor of Pass all's
Hotel at Quebec, which is, by the way, one of the
best, if not the very best hotel in this city. This
gentleman has laid t-e foundation for a large for
tune at Lorette Falls, having secured a large tract
of land on the borders of the falls and river, and
erected thereon a grist mill and a paper mid, both
of which he expects to bave in full operation in a
few weeks. Tnere is still abundant room for Yau
kee enterprise; and wfen the Cantdas a e aaut-xc 1
to Vie States, as they soon will be, these falls w-ll
be invaluable. The village of Lorette is inhabited
almort entirely by Iidians converted to the Catho
lic faitn. Ttere are but three or four neat houses
it the village, and the village itself is laid oot with
out tegsrd to oxder or beauty, much resembliug a j
shanty village, euch as I have seen on the liue of a
rail,oad in tbe process- of construction. There are
many places around tDis walled ci'y that amply re
pay the traveller for the cost of the visit?such as
Lorette Falls, tbe Falleof Montmorency,the Plains
of Abraham, where stands Wolfe's monument, aod
where Wolfe aid Montcalm fell in Quoting their
roontrjV battles. The fortifications, and,above all,
the most interesting to an American traveller, is the
place where tbe gallant and fearless Montgomery
asctndtd to scale tne walla of this Gibraltar of
America, and wbe e be so nobly sa rificed his life in
bis endeavors to add to the imperiahaole fame of
his adopted country. Yours,

The brig Oriental, Captain Irevitt, from San

in a south-easter. Although t ie wind was not blow
irg heavy, her ohatna parted, and she narrowly
escaped going on some recks. She will probably be

At Gold Beach and the mouth of Rogue River, tee
miners an preparing for <he approaching winter by
collecting large piles of sand nigh up oo the bank,
above the tice, ready to oommeoce working when

Machines have been invented that cave a i the gold,
but tbey require so much nr-re work, that in the re

Binre the departure of the last steamer but little
ef importance h so transpired in this qua tor. and
tbe a? Rations of the fall (lectio* have quite subsid
ed, in t? s definite decision that Donna re aod Her
bert, the demoeiatic caudifc es,are the chosen men.
No relief is ye*, experienced in the money market,
to impn wment in oommsree, or in real estate. The
great Pnehto question, which hes been pending so
long be1 ore the United -Rates Commission, and on
wl.ich most of the titles to the city lots depend, Ie
net yet decided, and the result is that the Immense
?mountof foreign capital which awaits the solution
of that p'obhm, in tbe vaults of tbe French aod
English agents, is still withheld from the use
of tbe community. While this eeoounts for the
s<ag ration cf operations in real estate, the ex see of
Importation b-yond the wauls of the State, fa
ni*b ? the canse for tbe dsolioe of commerce.
By an immense eagerness sad false cal eolations,
the merchant# of U>? Atlantic States have r> glutted
our markit with menhtndire of every kind. '.hat a
year's consumption will hardly afford us a searib e
relief; and until we use op the overplus, the t will
scsicely be a necessity for any more ships and oaf
goes, of any kind whatever.
In the department of agriculture, too, everything
has been overdone. Flour is cheapter thn? it > in
New York; potatoes are 60 cents a buabel, and with- i
cut a foreign demand to relieve us of the excess, I
the farmers must remain without hope of profit till
another season. Both farmers and merchant#,
theitfore, trom the failure of their calculations, b tve
been oblige 1 to have recourse to their real estate
iastesd of to their profits, to raiss money, and by
and bye.aben their mortgages ran out, and tie* eta
no lorgrr meet the ouerous taree and fur
and five per cent n mouth, which is the pri? in
tola quarter of temporary roller, they mis', let
their property go to the hammer. I l^ave y >u to re
flect what will be the result of the forcing targe
quantities of real estate into the market, the titles to
most of which are not entirely satisfactory. In a state
of general depression, I think that su h a <.l|?nay
will produce what you would call a cra*h.
The picture is not pi-asant. and I know no better
way or impartiog its true color to yourmiud than
by styirg that the calamity of a g*neri! con
flagration, such ss s'ruck tniscity some two or three
tears ago, would operate in favor of the local popu
lation. moie as a bussing thaua nurse. The overplus
of merchandise which now depresses trade would thm
be consumed; the lose would fall upon the Eiatern
shippers, whoee imprcdenci makes them deserving
or it, and our ships and merchants would stoq h tve
new supplies to lurnieb. But while trade an 1 com
merce are thus at a staud still, toe mluer is the only

Letter Aram the Unite 1 fttates Minister to

Lima, S-p'mmbar 20,1854.
Your paper of the 19th ultimo contains a letter
signed by 'Edmttnl Bsatty, la'e mister of the
ship John Birinr, from Caincha Lslanta," in which,
after referring to my letter, published in the H*
bald of the 16'h utiaio, ai d to the " Meeting of
American S.l mta ersat the Astor House," held on
13th of February, 1854, he says:?
Mr. J. Randolph Clay, L'nitod States Minister at Lima,
was not very energetic in seeking for reparation from
the Peruvians?for reparation has yet to be mail'-?nor
did Mr. Clay state the caw of the masters to the British
Admiral. The masters stated their case In person to the
Admiral. In fact, the whole tenor of the article in your
paper of the ldth, from Mr. Clay, is intended to place the
shipmasters in a false position; but shipmasters of nil
natii us, who were at the Cliiueha Islands last August,
September and (ictober, know of the intriguing of Mr.
Clay and the Per minus.
Now, Mr. Editor, I shall not notice Cipt. Bsatty's
friTcic.ua Imputations, farther than to refer you and
the pub.ic to the fo lowiug cople t of letters reoeived
from the American shipmasters at the Chiucba
Islands, which you will oblige me by giving a place
to in your columns. The " Jo in Baring" waa at the
Island* ? the time the letters were addressed to me,
and if Japt. Beak y did rot agree to their contents,
it la videut that re was in a very b oall miuority.
11emain, gentlemen, your obd't. svu't.

SrsDAY, Oct. 29?0 P. M.
During the past week there has been great ilepi-o? jioi?
In all things connected with financial adair*. The in >ney
market lias been steadily tightening, and the stuck nnr
ket has been heavy and inactive. The banks mud sliow
a greatet decrease in the line of dNcount'i in tire neit
weekly returns than ha* been reportw 1 yet. The specie
department has not received any aece- ion since tin- la t
statement, while there has been pretty large shipm
If tho California receipts aro not mad" awtilnhl", tho
amount in the bank vaults must bo rc luetii bi-hnv t> u
million of dollars. This contraction In the t-.vo l.-a Kng
departments has kept business operrtiuns pretty -u i c
Tims far it has not caused any embarrai mient suH -ii nt
to pruduee failures, but it lias boon very -ever' up id
he nu resntile classes. It is bringing about rapidly th ?
e-ired ohjeet, and we sli-il oon Ij.igin to feel its li.-.i
flrial ellerts. The importations have already ho nu
mucli reduced, and the shipment of specie now com
siatlvely limited. This Is what the bunk* aimed at an I
t has la-en partially accomplished.
Stocks have not sulTvred so much fr on tlio stringency
s other things. Tlie brokers have been tolerable easy,
midst tlie contraction in bank loans, and quotations I'or
b? fancies hV e tlierefore b>-en pretty well sustained,
t Is the prevailing opinion that we have seen th" worst,
hat there must sunn be a let up In the pressure, and
| .it the times will be easier. Tlie receipts of gold dust
f om California was considerably less tluiu expected, but
it will be more favorably felt In the absence of an active
demand for shipment. The steamship Baltic, from this
port for Liverpool, yesterday, carried out only 9142,817
21 in specie, and the total shipment for tho week only
amounted to $1.V2,817 21. A larger amount would have
gone out in the Baltic had the California remittance ar
rived at an earlier day; but it was retained for the
steamer from this port aext Wednesday. t
Mr. A. II. Nicolay's regular semi-weekly auction sale
of stocks and bonds will take place on Monday, the 30th
inst., at 12X o'clock, at the Merchants' Exchange.
The Naugatnck Railroad Oimpany have appointed
their directors and Mr. Heaton, of Now H.-.vcn, a com
mittee to investigate the subject of the over Issues of
their stock by Rob-rt Schuyler, and to settle the claim
of the holders by compromise or otherwise, at their dis
cretion. The ovr issues was 317 shares, and the Bridge
port Standard -ays It la ? ruler stood that a part of this
was pledged (with genuine stock) at 75 rents on the dol
lar, and it is doubtful whether a part of the false issue
can be identified.

roughly cleaned out of old stocks.
