ANNEXATION OV CANADA.
ADDRESS OF THE PEOPLE. . As we noticed a week or two ago, the people of Canada, or a portion of them, .have signed an address or declaration, in favor of separation from Great Britain, and of annexation to this country. The declaration in ably written : it is concise in its particulars, moderate, firm, and respectful in its tone, and patriotic and loyal in j its sentiments. As the voice of the people ofj a a. I an adjoining government, ana as a movement indicative of the spirit of the age, it is an in teresting and important paper. Therefore, xve give some extracts" from it, taking the most inter esting paits,and embracing about one-fourth f the whole, as follows : To the People of Canada: The number and magnitude of the evils that afflict our country, nnd the universa and increasing depression of its material interests, callupon all persons animated b a sincere desire for its welfare, to com bine for the purposes of inquiry and prepa ration with a view to the adoption of such remedies as a mature and dispassionate in vestigation may suggest. Belonging to all parties, origins & creeds, but yet agreed upon the advantage of co operation for the performance of a com mon duty to ourselves and our country. prowinn out of common necessity, we have consented, in view of a brighter and hap pier future, to merge in oblivion all past differences of whatever character, or at tributable to whatever source. In appeal ing to our Fellow-Colonists to unite with us in this our most needful duty, we sol emnly conjure them, as they desire a suc cessful issue and the welfare of their coun try, to enter upon the task at ihis moment ous crisis in the same fraternal spirit The reversal of the ancient policy of Great Britain, whereby she withdrew from the Colonies their wonted protection in her markets, has produced the most disas trous effects upon Canada. In surveying the actual condition of the country, what but ruin or rapid decay meets the eye! Our Provincial Government and Civic Corporations embarrassed our banking & other securities greatly depreciated our mercantile and agricultural interests alike a unprosperous ; real estate scarcely sale able upon any terms; our unrivalled riv ers, lakes, and canals almost unused whilst commerce abounds our shores; the circulating capital amassed under a more favorable system is dissipated, with none from any quarter to replace it Thus, without available capital, unable to effect a loan with foreign States, or with the mo ther country, although offering security greatly superior to that which readily ob tains money both from the United States and Great Britain, when other than Colo nists are the applicants ; crippled, there fore, and checked in the full career of private and public enterprise, this posses sion of the British Crown our country ; stands before the worth in humiliating contrast with its immediate neighbours, i-xhihiting every symptom uf a naiiuu foot sinking to decay The bitter animosities of political par ties and factions in Canada, often leading to violence, and, upon one occasion, to civil war, seem not to have abated with time ; nor is there, at the present moment, any prospect of diminution or accommoda tion. Among the statesmen of the Mother country alnong the sagacious observers of the neighboring Republic in Canada and in all British North America amongst all classes there is a s'rong pervad ing conviction that a political revolution in this country is at hand. Such fore bodings can not readily be dispelled, and they have, moreover. a tendency to realise the events to which they point. Of all the remedies that have been.sug gested for the acknowledged and insuffera ble ills with which our country is afflicted, there remains but one to be considered. It propounds a sweeping and important change in our political anil social condi tion involving considerations which de maud our most serious examination. This Remedy consists in a Friendly and Peace ful Separation from British Connection, and a Union upon equitable terms with the Great North American Confederacy of Sovereign States. We would premise that towartls Great Britain we entertain none other than senti ments of kindness and respect. Without her consent we consider separation as neither practicable nor desirable. To the United States the annexation of Canada presents many important induce ments. The withdrawal from their bor ders, of so powerful a nation, by whom in time of war the immense ami grow ing commerce of the lakes would be jeopardiz ed -the ability to dispense with the costly but ineffectual revenue establishment over a frontier of manv hundred ml toe. large accession to their income from our customs the unrestricted use of the St. Lawrence, the natural highway from the Western States to the ocean, are objects for the attainment of which the most sub stantial equivalents would undoubtedly be conceded. Fellow Colonists: We have thus laid before you our views and convictions on a momentous question involving a change, which, though many of us with varied feelings and emo tions, we all believe to be inevitable one which it is our duty to provide for, and lawfully to promote. We address you without prejudice or partiality in the spirit ol sincerity and truth in the interest solely of our common country, and our single aim is its safety and welfare. If to your judgement and reason, our object and aim be at this timo deemed laudable and right, we ask an ob livion ot past distentions; and from all, Witt- . i . f . .v..Uui uisimcuon or origin, party, or creed, that earnest and cordial co-oneratfon m such lawful, prudent, and judicious means as may best conduct us to our com mon uestiny. Why is a lean monarch like a studious man? because he is a thin king. w HOW GOES THE FIGHT? We noticed eek before last, that a serious piece of business bad occurred between Capt. G. W. Caldwell and Mr Rufus Barringer, of Charlotte, N. C, on ac- nt of certain strictures ot the latter, on the cou From the Boston Post. THE MINISTER AND THE BOY WHICH KNEW THE MOST.

Now this John was a nice boy a good shrewed fellow at a trade, but without cul ture rough as pudding-stone, whereas on the contrary the minister was a gentleman of much refinement instinctively polite So when John, his hands rammed into the pockets of a greasy blue frock, a ram beaver hat cocked rather sharply on his head, while his big round face glowed with the exercise he had undergone, burst in upon him, bawling out 'there's a should der of mutton in yender for ye father sent it," he felt, to say the least, a little shocked. Ikying down his pen, he said f. t.a u !,n stood starinsr at him with a parr of blue eyes as large as old fashioned saucers, ' John you are lather rude ; you should cultivate better manners, and be less noisY. Is this the way you generally do your errands! Let me show you how 1 should present the mutton. Sit here in my chair, I will go fetch the meat, ajul yu shall hear what I will say." Down sat John in the comtortauie cnair, wnere, spreading his cowhide boots out on the carpet, he waited his first lesson in good breeding. Presently he heard a light tap at the door 4Oh, don't stand there a knocking," cries John, 44 come in, will ye?" The minister entered the room look ing as meek as Moses, and holding the mutton in his hand far above the carpet. Good morning, sir," said he, in the blandest voice imaginable, a rleasant morning. How is Mrs and the baby this morning?" John nodded approvingly. "My father," continued the parson, pre sents his compliments to you, and begs your acceptance of this shoulder ofmutton. My mother desires to be remembered to Mrs and yourself, and hopes to have the pleasure of seeing you soon at the farm. Good morning sir." With this the parson turned to leave the room, when our hero jumped from his chair and fairly screamed out -erf, here; stop slop.

A POLAR BEAR. A Polar Bear was recently shot, on the coast of Ualiiuilor. bv the crew of the Lord Exmouth of Halifax. The animal was stuffed and sent to Boston Two of the crew of the Lord Exmouth w ere cruising in a boat, when they discov ered the bear upon the Island. They im mediately returned to the vessel, took in six others of the crew, and eight muskets. with which they returned to the vicinity of the Island. " Upon approaching within gun-shot, the bear perceived anil came to wards them. The first discharge wound ed him in several places, but did not in the least check his approach. Finally howev er, after receiving quite a number of balls in his body, he turned and slowly retreated, making his attackers shudder by the fierce ness of his howling. It was then proposed by Dixon that they' should land upon the Island, in order to consummate the victory. To this the majority of the crew demurred from fear Three of the crew, however, including Dixon, landed, having armed themselves with two loaded guns apiece The bear, as soon as he saw them upon land turned about and began to approach, when six more balls were put into his body without apparently checking his ap proach. -Before, however, he got near enough to harm them, Mr Dixon succeed ed in loading another gun. At this mo ment the bear presented his side which he had not done before, and a bullet was lodged in his throat which caused the animal to fall. It was more than half an hour however before they dared to approach, as every few minutes the bear would by a desperate effort, get upon his feet with the intention of reaching them. After it was deemed safe, they ventured near, and found him to be dead. He was, with considerable labor, taken to the ves sel, and found to be sixteen feet long and to weigh 2200 pounds. Five hundred pounds of fat were taken from him in Hal- mix and it was found that sixteen balls had lodged in his body. The contest lasted for an hour and a half, and the roars of the in furiated animal might have been heard for many miles. Scientific American. From the Charlotte Hornet's Nest. TO THE PUBLIC. Iu justice to Capt. G. VV. Caldwell and myself, 1 submit the following statement : On the 3rd inst., at Concord, as the friend ot Capt. G. VV. Caldwell, 1 handed to Rufus Barringer a note from the former containing a direct invitation to the field ; which note the latter received and carried oft". After delivering the note, I urged the necessity of a speedy arrangement, as public suspicion was already excited. He replied, that hos must have some three or four days to make his arrangements. 1 then remarked, that I could not remain in Concord, and asked, if he knew who would be his friend, and if he could get Dr. Henderson again. He replied, he could not tell, for Henderson had acted before with reluctance. I then told him, that if he could give me any intimation as to who his friend w ould be, I would re tire to some point in the country and wait on hiin. He said, that he would meet me on Sunday, the 7th inst., at the Tuckasiege ford. I urged Saturday, the Cth, but he insisted on Sunday, and I acquiesced. I parted with him under the full belief that there would be a meeting.on the field on the following Monday, and so informed Capt. Caldwell. After these facts the public may w ell judge my surprise upon learning that he had gone to Charlotte, with the challenge in his pocket, ami gazett ed Capt. Caldwell as a coward! and had, in the same publication, declared in ad vance that he would not fight any of Capt C's friends! Do the annals of honorable warfare afford another such instance of base cowardice! What, gazette a man after receiving his challenge ! Where, but in the low mind of Rufus Barringer, could such an idea arise? Now, if it was his intention to refuse to meet Capt. C. on the ground as stated by himself, he should have declined receiving the challenge when it was offered. Receiv ing Capt. CalpwelPs note, and arrangements under it, was an acceptance of the challenge, and he could not after wards take exception to Capt. C. as i srentleman. 1 his is a plain rule, sanc tioned by custom and common sense. But there is another circumstance that fixes the stain of cowardice indelliblv upon him: we will suppose for argument's sake, that his ground lor relusmg to tight Capt. Cald well was a good no. and that hp could avail himself ot it after the acceptance of the challenge, upon what principle could he refuse in advance to fight me, or 4any of" Capt. Caldwell's "friends." I had had no connection with the former affair, and he could not pretend that my honor had been stained by it. Why then, I again A NEW SCHEME. - Some of the New York papers contains long letter from the Hon. T. L. Clingman, a whig member of Congress from North Carolina, to Mr Simeon Draper of New York city, in relation to the establishment of Banks in different parts of the country, for the issue of bills based upon government stock, or for an issue of Treasury notes to incorporate banks, or private bankers, r 1 , . .trotra wit h h upon a deposit oi government, - Secretary of the Treasury. It appears from other sources, that Mr Cling man is not the father of the above mentioned scheme. Mr Fillmore is said to be its mother, and Mr Clingman only officiated as accoucheur, ifthereisany truth in the following extract from along editorial of the Washington Union: 4The leading idea of the new banking project originated, we believe, with Mr. Vice President Fillmore; and it has been put in practice in the State of New York. But it seems that Mr Clingman, a member of Congress from North Carolina, has fal-Ien-into the hands of the Wall street bro kers during a recent visit to the city of New York, and has been induced by them to bring Mr Fillmore's scheme before the public as a new national measure. The features of the project, as drawn by Mr Clingman, do not differ in, any material particulars from those of Mr -Fillmore's project. The slight differences are mere- Iv apparent; and they vanisn even upon a slight consideration, leaving nothing but the irresistible belief that they were put into Mr Clingman's mind only to stimulate his vanity with the idea that he was real ly gaining a financial reputation by bring ing forward anew financial project, when he was in fact only advocating a system which had been for some time in practical operation in the State of New York, and which was recommended montns ago as a national measure. The Wall street bro kers have doubtless been much amused at the financial knowledge and experience of the North Carolina congressman, and with out doubt many quiet jokes have been circu lated by them at Mr Clingman's expense.'' ARREST OF SWINDLERS. since two men, pass ing by the names of Wilson and Brantley, arrived in this place with the professed ob ject of purchasing negroes, for their Louis- iana riantations tiiey had with them three horses, which they offered for sale. On Saturday last, another Mr. Wilson arrived here, and arrested the other two, stating that he resided in Augusta, Georgia, and that two of these horses were procured fel oniously from him. They were carried carried before two Justices of the Peace, before whom they confessed their guilt and surrendered the horses. Upon being in formed that they must be committed to jail tor six months, to await the requisition ot the Governor of Georgia, they agreed to accompany their pursuer back again, and accordingly were put in irons and carried on. larboro Press. ask, refuse to fight mer The truth, is, th ground of his refusal to fight Capt. C, as stated by himself, is a miserable pre text suggested by his cowardice. He was afraid to fight any botly and he resorted to the Gazette, with the design of divert ing public attention from his own base ness by a 44 Bilingsgate" and Fish-market" tirade against Capt. Caldwell. In this, he has not succeeded. 1 have now done with Rufus Baringer forever. In his recent publication, he proclaimed his own infamy. By his das tardly conduct, he has put himself under the ban j he can no longer be recognised among gentlemen. Henceforth, let the world look down upon him as a creature whose heart is malicious enough to devise evil, but whose spirit is too cowardly to defend it. J. F. HOKE. Oct. 8, 1849. The Writings of Bishop England. The Baltimore Sun of the 20th instant, makes the following allusion to the wri tings of this distinguished Divine: 4It is with pleasure we learn that the writings of this distinguished Divine of the Catholic Church, will be published in a few days by Messrs John Murnhy and Co. of this citv, in five large octavo volumes Bishop England was well known in this community, as one of the most eloquent orators ot this age, and his tame, as, a con troversial writer, and ripe scholar, is co extensive with our almost boundless coun try. These works are comprised in five large volumes, and embrace an immense variety of subjects, interesting not only, to tne ineoiogian dui to the statesman and the lawyer. This perhaps is the most ex tensive publication ever attempted in this city, and gives us another evidence of the growing prosperity of our community, and the enterprise of her citizens. These vol umes are destined to occupy a considera ble space in the public mind ere they are placed on the shelves of the library, side by side with the works of Fenelon and Bos-suet." Inteuestisg history of ax adventure to California. A New York citizen, having a capital of $10,000, managed to make a kind of living with it in Wall street, by shaving. Smitten with the California fever, he purchased one uf the vessels sold by the United States Government, by auc tion, at the termination of the Mexican war. It was a brig, for which he paid 83, 5n0. He bought wines and other liquors with the balance of his cash, just leaving himself S500 to pay his expenses, by the Isthmus rwute, to San Francisco. His all was thus risked upon the hazard of the die. The brig, being freighted with this cargo, sailed for the land of gold, and he arrived before her He sold the cargo at a tre mendous profit, 300 or 400 per cent, and he was ottered for the brig 823,000. He refused the offer, because he saw he could make more money by a couple of trips to Oregon for lumber, which was then in great demand at San Francisco. At the end of ilie second voyage, lie was littered 343,UOO for the brig. He accepted it, and gather ing up his profits on the wines and the lumber, he turned all into gold dust. He returned to New York a few days ago, in the Crescent City, and deposited" 8150,000 worth of the shining particles in the mint in Philadephia, to be coined into eagles and half eagles. The truth of this narrative mav be relied on. iV. Y. Herald. SIR JOHN FRANKLIN. i fjcj- In relation to the reported finding of Sir John Franklin, the followini are all th particu lars; by which it will le seen by the reader that the report may or may not be true. If it be true, the party has certainly lived a long time on very little provisions, according to the abatements published last Spring : 'A communication from the Lords of Admiralty, under date of October 4, states that hopes are entertained that the news brought by Capt. Parker, of the True Love, arrived at Hull from Davis's straits, of Sir John Franklin's ship havipg been seen by the natives as late as March last, beset bv the ice in. Prince Regent's inlet, is not without foundation. From the same source reports have been received that Sir John Ross's ships are in the south of Prince' Regent's Inlet, and that the vessels of both expeditions are safe. This hope is somewhat strengthened by the telegraphic message to the Ad miralty, since received, of the Mayor of Hull, where the True Love arrived last March." Another account says : "Capt. Chapel, of the barque McLellan, of this port, from Davis's straits, furnishes information wnicn win oe reau wun inter est in the United States, and indeed in every part of the' world About the, 1st of August, while the MCL.eiian lay in ronu a bayt an indentation of baflins bay, in lat. 74, Ion. 72, the natives of the coast came on board the Chieftain, an l!.nglih wnaieman, and gave information by signs that two large ships were then lying in Prince Re gent's inlet, and had been there fast in the fee for four seasons; and being asked with regard to those on board, whether they were dead or alive, they replied in tne same way, that the crews were not '-asleep," ('that is. not dead.) but were all welt. It was considered by the Englishman and by Capt. Chapal that the ships ot Sir John Franklin were clearly meant. The Englishman landed at Cape Hay, some distance from Pond's bay, a quantity of coal and provisions with which his ship was furnished by the British government, for the use of the long-missing snips, it they should chance to come there as they would be obliged to do on their return to England. This is certainly the latest news from that quarter, and there is a possibility, perhaps a probability, that the commander of the unfortunate expedition and his crews are still alive." And still another snjs.'that a vessel has arrived at New London, Conn., with information receiv ed from the Indians, that two vessels were in Prince Regent's Inlet, locked in tne ice, and have been there for four years!

It has been already stated that Mr Polk selected the furniture of the White House, as far as practicable, of American manufacture; but the present occupant of the White House, it seems, will spread upon the floor of the east room a magnificent carpet of foreign manufacture. So savs the Phila delphia Times in the following paragraph: A splendid Brussels carpet was last Saturday shipped at New York for Wash ington. It is for" the President. It con tained 500 yards, and cost $3 per yard, and is to go on the Reception Room of the White House. Fifteen hundred dollars for a carpet! Professor Grant is at present engaged in arranging his "Calcium Light," for the use of the Camden, Amboy and New Jer sey Railroads, to be placed upon the front oi me locomotives. Should this prove successful, and of the utility Professor Grant supposes, it will render travelling by railroad as safe by night as by dav. This light is a discovery by Professor Grant, and is said to combine the several qualities of both the electric and the Drummond lights, and can be furnished at a compar atively much cheaper rate than the ordinary lights.
