'BKPFOKP. PA., FRIDAY. >V 26, 1868
This second world's wonder of 1868, was
duly opened on Thursday the 18th inst.,
with imposing ceremonies. In the true
spirit of the age the news of the opening
and its success, was flashed throughout the
civilized world the same day. A grand
banquet was given at Ismaila a point tuid
way between the Mediterranean and the
Red Sea, on the 20th inst., at which the
Empress Eugenic and many other distil!
guished persons were present. An immense
fleet of first class ships has passed from sea
to sea and demonstrated the sacecss of the
enterprise. The success of this magnificent
undertaking will be to the commerce of
Europe and the world, what the Pacific
Railroad is to America and the world on
this continent They both mark engineer
ing triumphs upon which the world, uutil
very recently, looked as impossible. They
are both grand successes achieved in behalf
of civilization and commerce. And they
both precede and usher iir great changes in
the modes and courses ot international ex
changes. While the Pacific Railroad bind.*
the great model ol Republic ol all time in
closer bonds of brotherhood, and brings into
direct contact the newest and most active
civilization of the world and the oldest, open

hitherto scaled and changeless flowery king

results it is scarcely possible to conjecture.
That these will be great and surprising be
yond our highest anticipation there is not a
shadow of doubt. In jhis grand age when
the accumulated force, the momentum, of
six thousand years of human effort seems
compressing the significance and force of a
generation into a single year, none may ca-t

export of specie in large quantities is always
evidence that we are baying abroad more

THE Indiau Peace Commission, of which
our excellent fellow citizen, Mr. BJHTNOT, is
now the Chairman, has recently been in
session at Washington, preparing a report
upon the doings of the season. Messrs.
BRC.VOT and BISHOP were the only members
who have personally visited the Indian
country. They spent five weeks among the
wildest tribes of tb'e South, accomplishing
results which have the heartiest approval of
che Board and of the officials at Washing
ton. Other members supervised the ex
tensive purchases of Indian goods in the
Eastern markets. This proves to be the
first year in the history of our Indian affairs
that our savage annuitants have not been
cheated in either the quantity or quality of
goods supplied to them; that treaties have
uot been systematically violated by our own
agents and citizens; that their reservations
have not been encroached upon by intrud
ing .-windlers, under the protection of dis
honest agents; the first year which has not
been disfigured by a bloody outbreak of the
frontier tribes. The Commission, imper
fectly executed in many of its details as it
has been, has proved a decisive success,
and Congress will sustain and enlarge its
pow.rs for still greater usefulness.—

—The canal inauguration fleet of forty five
vessels his arrived here. They were not
obliged to employ pilots, and the only diffi

canal at various points, but they got off
without difficulty, the sandy bottom of the
canal neither hurting nor holding them.
Near Ismailia several steamers came into
collision, but no serious damage was" done.
Tie water in the canal between Suez and
Ismailia is fully twenty feet deep in the
shallowest part, and in sevetal places it is
le.-s than twenty-five feet deep, but at all
these points the canal can easily be deepen

igate the canal from Port Said to Suez with
ease iu fifteen hours.
The batiks do not wash as much as was
apprehended, and the complete success of
the great work exceeds all expectations.
The arrangements here for the transporta

All the rolling stock on the Alexandria,
Cairo, and Suez Railroad has been brought
into requisition to carry the immense crowds,
and the mails to and from Bombay have
been touch delayed in consequence.
The canal is now clear of shipping, the
whole fleet having anchored iu the harbor

the English officer who first suggested the
building of the canal, will be erected here,
and on Tuesday the fleet will leave for Port

The Reciprocity Treaty—The Effect of
Annxeation —The Haij breed Population.
WASHINGTON, Nov 17. —It is very cer
tain that our "loil" Canadian friends are in
a quandary. Their imposing schcnio of a
confederation turns out to be a burden not
easily managed, and all around they stem
to he losing ground. What they want is the
help that "reciprocity" will give. That's
exactly what they ought not to obtain. I
have lying "before me a number of letters
from leading Canadians who favor annexa
tion. These letters have been submitted to
the President, and were, doubtless, read by
him with great interest. From one of these,
written by a leading lawyer of Lower Can
ada, a French Canadian, and one of the
most accomplished gentlemen in British
America, I make the following extracts.
Addressiog a gentleman, now here in the
interests of the radical party there, he says;
"You know perfectly well that business
is at a stand still; that being deprived of a
market by the repeal of the Reciprocity
treaty, our oomuierce is entirely broken
down, that we are producing less than one
half of what we have to pay for our impor
tations ; that the emigration is going on at
a most frightful rate, that one-filth of our
cultivated lands will not give any crops this
year (this letter bears dale in the early
summer) for want of hands, and that our
list of insolvents is longer than that of the
whole Northern and Western States togeth
The same gentleman says further on :
"With a renewal of the Reciprocity treaty
the reacrionary and anti-republican element
will agaiu raise its head, in consequence of
renewed prosperity, and will again show it
self hostile and defiant to the United States.
The Tory party only look upon reciprocity
as a new lease of power to them, and it
seems to me that the friends of the United
States and of republican institutions here
have some right to ask the American Gov
ernment riot to please its bitter enemies
here at the expense of its friends. After
eleven years advantageous eonimereisl rela
tions to us, has the Tory party shown the
slightest disposition to keep on more friend
ly relations with the United States? Not at.
all. The whoie.strength and power which
they acquire through the benefits which they
derived from the treaty was directed during
the American rebelliuu against the United
States as a Government and as" a people."
From some personal knowledge ami much
interesting information which have been
given me, 1 em satisfied that the following
things are true :
First. The establishment of the "New
Dominion" Confederation was originally
part of the anti Republican plot in which
France and England joined after the out
break of our rebellion.
Second. That it only changed front slight
ly when the South surrendered, and that it
was at once weakened by that fact.
Third. That the failure to renew the Re
ciprocity Treaty has destroyed the business
interests of the British Provinces, ar.d is
rapidly strengthening the ancxation senti
Fourth. That the original passage of the
Reciprocity Treaty also saved Great Britain
from a damaging annexation agitation, which
is now renewed with greater earntjtitness.
This fact takes the question out of its merely
commercial relations, and makes it ono of
grave political importance.
Fifth. That the present British Ministry
will only be too glad to see either indepen
dence or annexation, or both, made accom
plished facts. In saying this, I speak from
minutes made of an interview recently had
with the Hon. John Bright, By one of the
leading English merchants of Lower Canada,
who is also an advanced Liberal and an ad
vocate of independence. He visited Eng
land to ascertain, if possible, the opinion of
the Ministry on these questions, and his
interview with the President of the Board
of Trade was by special appointment.
Evidence to establish these various points
and others were laid recently before Presi
dent Grant, and, doubtless, will greatly in
fluence bis judgment in the recommenda
tions be may make to Congress.
Newfoundland votes down the Confcdera
tionists, and the half breeds on the Sas
katchewan river are announced to be in re
volt. "More power to their elbows," I say,
though, entre nous, I beg leave to affirm my
conviction that the latter are a bad lot.
During a ehequred career as a volunteer it
was my lot once on a time to be doing duty
on the Northwest frontier. The Sioux were
at war, and, it was understood, received sup
plies of munitions from the Red river traders
over in the Red river region. I visited Pem
bina under orders to investigate matters, and
went over to Fort Garry. There is no doubt
at all that "Mr. Lo," of Dakota Territory,
was aided in the work of murder by bis con
genial half-breed brother in the Sas
katchewan settlements.
Gov. Wm. McDougall, whom the tele
graph reports as encamped, within our
territory is still a young man, who, formerly
a Liberal leader in Parliament, has been re
waided in this way for having helped the
confederation scheme by aiding the forma
tion of what i known as the "Coalition
Ministry," of which be was also a member.
It was only through the secession from the
Liberal party of the Canadasof such men as
Hon. George Brown and this new Governor
that the home government was able to ob
tain colonial support McDougall was for
merly a reporter, and afterwards an as
sistant editor of the Toronto Globe. lie was
in the old Canadian Parliament four or five
years, and an incident is told of him, which,
in view of his present plight, is rather
amusing. About eight or nine years ago he
was making a bitter opposition speech,
criticising the then Ministry, and wound up
or.e of his paragraphs by declaring that "if!
redress could not be had, the Canadians |
must look to Washington." Ever since he •
has been known as "Look-to-Washington
McDougal'." He is_ looking thither now,
with a different idea in view.
The New Dominion Government have
paid (or are to do so) the Hudson Bay Com
pany three hundred thousand pounds. The
white and half breed population, more half
breed than white, I assure you, number
about ten thousand, i suppose that one- •
half of these are in the Red river settle- ;
nieuts, near the United States frontiers. In j
old days they helped materially to swell the
Pembina vote. Vou remember that when '
the Democracy carried Minnesota, that
"Mr. Lo" in his "breech clout" was a free :
and independent voter. The balance of this
semi-civilized population found at Fort York
on Hudson's Bay, at various little posts,
and across to the eastern boundary of
British Columbia at Fort Selkirk, where
there is a large settlement. From what I
saw, it Ls certainly fair to say that the |
civilization is semi—very. Of Indian popu- !

to inquire about the "noble red man." Ac
cording to late reports the entire British
Indian population is set down at about 150,-
000—30,000 west of the mountains, and the
rest east. If anything would lead me to
object to annexation, this would.

a failure, and prepare ourselves at once for
some other form of government. The out
rage in Brooklyn is not a new thing. It
was began last year, when the Democratic 1
authorities denied the Republicans the right
of any representation in the appointments
of the elective officials ; and, being entirely
successful in their nefarious schemes then,
they repeated them this year, and have
consummated their villainy by fradulenty
returning certain of the Democratic candi
dates as elected, the principal one being the
sheriff. Now it is not to the Republicans
that we are indebted for the exposure of
this monstrous wickedness; but to Judge.
Joseph F. Barnard, of the Supreme Court,
and to District Attorney Morris, of Kings
County, both of them prominent members
of the Democratic party. Mr Morris ex
plicitly avers that of the long list of officers
and members of assembly returned as elect
ed by the Democratic canvassers the only
one who has been actually chosen by the
votes of the people is the mayor. The sub
ject has been laid before the Grand Jury of
Kings County ; and, while waiting for legal ,
action by the properly constituted authori-i
ties, it may be set for the people to remain ]
quiet. But we must confess that the
supineacss of the Brook ly nit es has a very
discouraging aspect. 1.
IT is duly paragraphed that "Henry
Ward Bencher's salary will be reduced to
$21,000 this year." Whether or not it will
be considered proper to take up a subscrip
tion for him is not stated. Estimating liis
further income, from lecturing and writing,
at some $12,000 per annum—audwt is all
that—the reverend gentleman will have
only a paltry $33,000 a year to live upon.
It is rather more, indeed, than any of the
Apostles received, and even a larger income
than most of the Euglidi hi-,bops get, inr
doing very little ; but considering that the
Archbishop of Canterbury has $73,000, and
the Bishop of London $50,000 a year, Mr.
Bcecher may fancy that he has a cause to
MANY arc the anecdotes being told of the
famous French academician Sainti-Bcuve,
recently deceasecf iu Paris. He was sup
ping one evening at a restaurant, and close
by nim the great friar Lacordaire was seat
ed. Perhaps it. was malice, or perhaps he
did not see the latter, bat Saiuto lJcave,
who was conversing oa the subject of reli
gion with a friend, dropped the remark that
he could not believe in God because it went
beyond his understanding. He had scarce
ly spiken this when Lacordaire rose up to
his fall height, and, pointing toward heaven,
exclaimed: "M. S;iinte-Beuve, you say you
do not believe in (Jod because you cannot
understand him. But cao you underhand
why thi- same fire will melt butter and har
den eggs'' And nevertheless you are eatiug
your omelette!" Sainte-Beuve, struck at
this remark, remained silent for a moment,
but then ha rose likewise, pressed the hand
of the ardent Dominican, and they remain
ed warm friends ever afterward.
WHEN Eugenia visited Constantinople
she went to hear mass at the Armenian
church. This church had been magnificent
ly decorated at the expense of the Sultan,
and strange to say, the decoration had been
I performed under the immediate supervision
of the Sultana Valide. Throngs of enthu
' ciastic spectators lined the roads over which
| tho Empress passed, and when she reached
' the church she was escorted to a magnifi
I cent throne. A French writer observes on
this occasion, that this visit will probably
lie of the utmost importance to the Turkish
people. Seeing an infidel woman treated
with so much respect, and even their great
Padishah bowing before her, the native wo
men threw off their reserve and were the
most eager to press forward, a good many
even dropped their veils, and it was evident
j that the spectacle inspired them wi'h a sen
■ timent of the dignity of their sex. The East
; seems to shake off its torpor and awake to a
, new life.
! THE latest intelligence from Cuba con
j linns the reports heretofore received of the
I intention of the insurgents to destroy all the
sugar producing estates they can operate
upon. On Thursday week seven cane-fields
near Las Craces were burned. Since that
time four Chinamen were discovered in the
act of firing another cane-field. They were
seized and immediately executed. The set
tlement of Teguayabeti, which was defend
ed by thirty volunteers, has been captured
by the insurgent-aud burnt. Gen. Do Ilo
das has returned from Cienfuegos, whither
he went to examine into the situation.
Hardly bad he arrived there before Gi-n.
CarLt> begged him to send to bis aid 3,(X)0
volunteers, to bring on, if possible, a genera!
engagement with the Cuban commander,
Cavada. The Havana Diurio on Saturday
had an article declaring that there were but
two elements of population iti the island,
the Spanish and foreign, and that the ene
mies of Spain could not remain there.
ST. PETERSBURG is threatened with total
inundation. At the last, advices the Neva
had already overflowed the banks, and guns
were firing to warn the tenants of ground
floors to remove themselves and their fam
ilies to higher stories, or else to abandon
the city. In the lower quarters the inhab
itants were rapidly deserting. This is the
first flood that has taken place at St. Peters
burg for four-and forty years. The last was
in 1824. when 402 houses were destroyed,
and 3,600 seriously damaged; 20,(Hit) people
were then left without shelter, and 600 were
drowned. It is impossible to over-estimate
tho misery produced by catastrophies of this
kind. In 1824 it was as though the whole
city had gone into mourning. Festivals i
were everywhere suspended, and the money j
destined for the usual round of winter j
amusements all went to relieve the thou
sands of unhappy jieople whom the inunda
tion had cither thrown out of work or turn
ed out of doors. To make matters worse,
the cessation of 1 alls and parties caused a
stagnation iu trade and innumerable bank
ruptcies, so that to all classes the trial was
u long and a cruel one. The municipal ad
ministration of the city is, however, better
now than it was then.
