The Canada brought dates from th .s remote country to the 11th of April inclunve, rom which it appears thai the American, renc 1 •nd English ships of war on the coast have, at the urgent request of the l-.mperor, an upon a requisition from the Chinese authorities, con tented to guard Nankin, Shanghai, and the mouth of the great cmal against the rebels. The aisociation of the American fleet in this engagement has excited the alarm of the Lon don Times, snd it warns the Americans of the danger they will incur should they follow in the footstep* of Great Britain and appropriate the Chinese Empire, in an article from which we select the following paragraph : "It is a rather suspicious circumstance that just now, when their very smait missionaries have given the Americans more intelligence of the nature and progress of the rebellion than our British representative and merchants were ever likely to do, that they have in those wa ters the largest armament ever aeeu in the East under their flag. What i< the ariny, apparent ]y intended for the chastisement of Japan and the opening of Jeddo, should really have an other object—to hold the balance of Chinese parties, and toelip in at the right moment Bnd grasp the prize ? The Times adds : The possession of an India would break tip the federal Union as surely—as immediately—as the conquest of Europe destroyed the old con stitution of Rome." We hardly think the Times can be serious in its suspicions of the intentions of our govern ment in sending a strong naval force to those distant seas, or that the Union is likely to in cur any danger from tbe annexation of China. In the meantime its predictions with regard to tbe slate «f things which would arise from the consummation ol such a scheme,are not to be taken with quite so much faith as the prophe cies of holy writ. It has tried its skill fre quently, heretofore, m the same line of vatici nation, and we do not know that it has ever hi. the mark on a single occasion. As long ago as tbe war of 1812, it was in the daily habit of regaling its readers with signs of the near and inevitable drstruction of the Union, and the return of old George's rebellious sutjects to the bosom o< their incensed, bat forgiving pa rent. From that period to the present day, its predictions have been incessant, and they now spread over a surface of forty years.— Yet the Union stands as firmly now as it did in the beginning, its strength having been not in the slightest degree impaired, either by the traitorous surrender of a part of our territory, to tbe British authorities, or by the imaginary hostility of the Louisiana Cre oles, or i)y the Missouri controversy, or by South Carolina nullification, or by the an nexation of Texas, or by the Mexican war, or by the conquest of California and New Mexico, or by the anti-slavery proceedings at Boston and in Exeter Hall, or by any of the thousand and one accidents, either oi which, the Times has sworn by all its Gods, would be sufficient to smash it into a thousand frag ments. It stands, and it will continue to stand, even though it should be mad enough to annex the entire "Flowery Kingdom," and throw in South America tor a balance on this side of the water. It is very easy for an edi iur, oitiiu e j n |jj g eag y c (j a i r j n LomJojj, to overthrow constitutions and destroy States upon paper. It is rather more difficult to car ry it out in actual practice, as we should have thought John Bull would have discovered, at least so far as ue are concerned, many years ago, for he has been, in one way or another, en deavoring to destroy the union of the States, ever since it was formed. Every just man has reason to rejoice that even in this world, retributive justice does not always sleep, and that great national crimes, Boouer or later, bring down upon the perpe trators punishment so palpable, that all the eatth can read. When England declared war upon the helpless Chinese because they did not choose to poison themselves with her opium, she little dreamed ihat retaliation was in the power of a people so weak and so friend less. If we may be allowed to form a judg ment upon the subject, from the remarks of the Times, she has alr n ady begun to discover her mistake. The American Missionaries, who have behaved civilly and kindly to the inhabi tants, have, it appears, transmitted to their country far more certain intelligence with re gard to the progress of this rebellion, than either British representatives or merchants are ever likely to obtain. It is not difficult to as sign a reason. Ihe Chinese detest the En glish on account of their atrocious injustice and cruelty in the war which they made upon them, and now, when England stands in need of all the information she can get upon an ira» portant subject, she finds it impossible to ob tain any. It is manifest that (he Times is seriously alarmed lest the Americans obtain a degree of influence in the councils of the Chinese Em pire which may prove fatal to English inte rests. Thus far, it has cause for alarm, and we hope the occasion will be improved in such a manner as to prove that it has not been groundless. Now is the time for America to acquire a preponderant influence in China.— Tne Chinese are already well disposed to wards us. On all occasions of business they preler our ships, and our merchants, to the En glish. L?t this good feeling be cultivated with the utmost assiduity, and there is no estimating I e results to this couutry. Direct annexation »,of course, a dream of the LoDdon Times But we may easily effect a species of annexa tion which will be far more beneficial to us.— The Times is evidently alarmed, and apparent ly wiib just cause. Death or an Editor.—Mr. N.C. Palmer, usuciate editor of the New York Times, died in the city of New York on the 7th inst., in the 35ih year of his age. He commenced his ca veer as a journalist in the city of Buffalo at tin age of 19, and has been ever since con nected with the press. The Times pays a >igh tribute to his talents and good qualities. Thk Mf.hili.a War.—The retirement of Gov. Trias trom the Mesilla Valley, on finding no invading force there, is regarded as an evi -7i M U Ind1 nd " <1 ' * nd "is •°PPO»ed gotiation. noW ** made « »« b i e ci of ne- tiie RACE today. The great match net between Red Eye and Nina, to-day protnwM to be exceedingly, inter eating- Each animal haa won a high reputa tion, and neither of them, it may well be sup posed, wilt aurrender without a desperate struggle. Such aport as we have not had since old Tree Hill waa in all ita glery, may there fore be confidently predicted. Such aeema to be the very general impression, and it being such, we look forward to the race with great interest. A great deal of State pride is mixed up with the affair, and people are exceedingly anxioua that Red Eye, the victor m ao many hardly contested fields, should preserve his laurels unwitb>*red. it would be a shame, they aay, for tht old favorite to be beaten here at home, almost io sight of the lot where ie was bom. In the meantime, we learn that is " en » though sanguine, have every reason to C *PJ that he will not be suffered to oter th< track. The friends of Nina are as sanguine as tliey, and do not mean to give in, unle« they are fairly beaten. There w,II be whip ping and spurring, broken heats and broken men, we suspect, on the t airfield bourse to day. From all we can hear, the concourse of people will be larger than it has been for years, as was to have been expected from the large 'stake and great elcitement. This race will, we suspect, give a decided impulse to the noble old sports of the turf, and we may yet hope to see them revive in all their strength, and with all their associations of by gone daya. Already the Jockey Club numbers one hundred and fifty. So large a number will be able to give us good purses, and good purses will secure the best horses from all quarters. Circuit Court of Petersburg.—The jury having been finally chosen, the case of Lewis Montague, charged with the murder of G. G. Thompson, of Petersburg, on the night of the 17th of June, 1852, Was proceeded with on Wednesday last. Soon after the occurrence of the murder we published the testimony in fall.; we now simply give a recapi:ulation of the testimony on Wednesday. Messrs. R. L. Childrey and J. R. Ecbels deposed to seeing Montague about half past 8 o'clock on the night of the occurrence standing on a corner with Thompson—then a scuffle, and then Thompson stagger as if struck. They then saw Montague shoot Thompson with a pistol, exclaiming at the same time, that he (Thomp son,) the d—d rascal, had drawn a pistol on him (Montague,) an J he would kill him. They did not see Thompson have any pisto! in his possession. J. T. Henderson stated that he was familiar with Mr. Thompson's business, but never saw him have a pistol in his life. He found no weopon in T.'a clothes after he was brought home the evening he was shot. Samuel Edwards testified that on the evening referred to, between 7 and 9 o'clock, Montague came into his bar-room very hurriedly, and went out again almost instantly. He said the per son he wanted to see was not there. James Belcher, a new witness for the Com monwealth, deposed to seeing Montague stand ing near a corner of a bv-alley, when Thomp son catne up and said, "How are you Mont?— I learn that you wish to see me." Montague replied, " yes, you d—d rascal, I do." Thomp son then said, " what's the matter Mont?"— Montague answered, " you reeollect the time you drew a pistol upon me, you d—d rascal," auu >.i.n misgave i. a diow oia£,gerea him from the sidewalk, his hat falling in the street. T. then steadied himself, and approach ed the sidewalk below the barber's pole. As he did so, Montague cocked his pistol, when T. made an effort as if to get into an alley, crying out, " Lord Mont don't shoot me." At this instant the prisoner fired, and Thompson fell, saying, as he did so, " Lord Mont you have killed me—what did you shoot me for?" Montague made no reply that witness heard, but walked off. Witness then followed him to the house, saw him go in, pull off his coat, and go behind the bar. He had been there but a short time when Mr. Williams came and took him to jail. Did not tell the police nor the Mayor what he had seen. Only mentioned it to one man, Henry Wells, but did not tell him to keep it a secret. Told him that night on his way home. Did not mention it, because did not wish to be called on against the prisoner, or any other man. I can neither read nor write. Am certain that Thompson had no pis tol—should not be here now if Wells had not had me summoned. Did not see Montague's pistol. Heard him cock it. Saw T. tall at mouth of alley. Was never called upon as a witness before, and did not wish to be this time. The trial was continued yesterday, and will probably be concluded this week. The testi mony very positively proves the guilt of Mon tague. Arthur Spring.—A despatch from Phila delphia, dated June B,P. M., says: I just now learn that Sprinf, the murderer, has changed his tone, and appears to be in a most excited state of mind. He is raving and furious, and positively sujshe is innocent, and that bis son committed the murders. There are doubts of his being in his right mind. The probability is that he is attempting to feign in sanity. The following declaration was signed by Spring 6n Tuesday, after the interview with his son ■' j MoVamensing Prison, June 7. I, A rithur S»nng, do most solemnly, in the fear ot/GodJoefore whom I tfm soon to Bp pear,)\JwlM ,h e presence of Rev.

Labgc Tempkbanci Meeting -two thousand Pebson. in attbndanc*— Philip 8 White va THE LlQUri* ÜBALEBS AND LiqOOB D BIN KINO CI TIZENS, Politicians and Chubchven.—The Af. rican Chutch waa filled with a vaat and attentive auditory oi our citizen. Wednesday evening laat, gathered to liaten to an addreaa upon the aubject of Temperance, from the diatinguiahed travelling lecturer, Philip 8 White, of Penniyivania. The ladiea turned out in large numbera. Mr White la tall, well proportioned and of majestic deportment—bia voice sonorous and agreeable—ac tion appropriate, and language fluent, argumenta tive and eloquent. Some very unpleasant truths and unpleasant anecdotea were related. He com menced by referring to the ctuses of the Declara tion of Independence. Our fore-fathera, prior to the Revolution, labored under intolerable griev ancea imposed by the tyrannical King George.— They finally reached a point when obedience, un der those grievances, ceased to be a virtue, and re bellion became a virtue, justice and reason sane tioning it These grievances were mainly three fold First, taxation without representation. Se condly, the permitting of band* of armed soldiers in their midst to cat out their substance without their consent. Third, refusing to admit to consi deration, petitiona couched in respectful language. For these grievances our fore-fathers went to war. They brought these grievances before the Colonial Congress, who discussed them with closed doors— then drew up a formal declaration of their griev" ances to submit to the world in justification of tbeir conduct, and then drew up and signed a for mal pledge of reaistanoe. No one objected then to the verbal sigcing of the pledge that a man could be and act as a men and a patriot wi&out signing. They signed to prevent misoonception oi tbeir views and make their promulgation more solemn and Impressive. Next they organized an army to carry out protection to that pledge, consisting of grand and subordinate divisions and grand and subordinate officers with a peculiar dress. Than tb.y marched to the tented field, and there toguard against the intrusions of unworthy men and ene mies, adopted cettain signs and countersigns. No objection waa then made to these signs that they rendered the army a secret society. Thus, them there was this gallant little army on the one band and King George's on the other. But some people in those days were neutral, on the fence, waiting to jump over to the aide on which victory should petcb. Then there were deserters from the army and they were shot. Then thsre was a large class of churchmen who, from alleged conscientious scruples, reinainel neutral. They contended that the Bible spoke of a kingly government but not of a republic, and they wers opposed to all new fan gled notions. Then it became necessary to appoint a commander in chief of the army, and he (Mr W) need not ask Virginians who waa apppinted. The name of George Washington was cherished in every heart. Then came the final struggle be tween the contending armies for freedom, and our fore-fathers nobly won their liberty. The speaker then contrasted the position of our forefathers with that which temperance men now occupied. They had lived patiently under the grievous op pressions of ruthless king alcohol, until patience had ceased to be a virtue. These grievances were of a threefold nature. First, taxation without represen tation, for what temperance men were represented in criminal courts, alms houses, and on gibbets! — Second, king alcohol had created in our midst bands of fierce soldier*. " Un 8 Wfco P°» raore dcnJ " ly than the musket or sword—the bottle. [Great applause J What temperance man had ever con sented to the inroads of a ruthless horde of liquor sellers in Virginia, keepers of toll gates on the road* to perdition and breathing holes of bell, that were destroying our negro property and laying waste all that was beautiful in the moral existence. Third, petitions respectfully written and laid at the foot of our thrones, the State Legislatures, had been treated with insult and contempt; if not to any extent here, they had been in other States of the confederacy. Had the grievances inflxted by king alcohol af fected us as much as those ißflictod upon our fore fathers by King George t Aye, indeed I Kingaleo hoi stood upon a throne of human skulls, cemented by tears and blood, and swaying a sceptre of physi cal destruction and moral death. He was an enemy whose tyranical arms stripped humanity of its no blest attributes—robbed tha heart of its best func tions, the sympathies of their tenderest sensibilities, and the soul of its loftiest aspirations—an oppressor whs had desecrated our homes and firesides— caused strange and unhallowed tires to burn upon our domestic altars—plundered our national treas ury—cramped the strength of human mussle and paralyzed the energy of mankind—put out the sun light of genius, and robed th-t morai earth in the ha* biilments of mourning. [Renewed applause ] The next step which they took as temperance men, like the manner of their forefathers in their struggle, was to d raw up a declaration of their grievances uud sign a p'edge of resistance. The pledgeof our forefathers aimed at redemption from colonial vaesalaga. ours at redemption from a moral and degrading slavery Modern patriots rose up however when we pre sented our pledge, and said that a c.an could be a man without signing a pledge, and did not wi«h to sign away our liberty. What liberty? Why the liberty of being kicked out of grogshops [laughter | and the liberty of being brought before c riminal courts,to answer tor drunken frays—with your nose running out of your facs like a boiled beet—[re newed laughter]—a delicate red fringe around a pair of glowering bloodshot eyes—your elbows peering out at the corners—the crown of your hat going fly, flipperty flap, [cheering,] and your toes enquiring outside ef your boots the state of the weather. [Applause and laughter ] Did the young man who pledged his troth to a blushing lair one at the altar back out at that time, because of that pledget No, ha had never known of any young m*n backing out under those circumstances—he was going it to the death then. [Laughter ] Next an army wa« organized to carry out the provUioM of ihe temperance pledge, grand and gubordinate divuiona and officer* were elected— •igna, eounter»ign« and regalia adopted, and pro rialoni made like to that of our forefather* for the aid of the lick and wounded. Then, like our fore fathera, there ware men upon the fence, who were only waiting to Join that army which ahould be ▼ictorloua— politiciana lor instance, who trimmed their aalla with the popular current—occasionally now they bad deaertera, but temperance men did not wtah to bare them ahot, but left then to the worat company in the world—their own refla tion* I The moat formidable neutrality which they bad now to eonlend with like their forefathers, was that of those who called themselves churchmen — He would give all due praise to those who stood with them, but wished to allude to the delinquent portion. They could give no reason tor not being with the Temperance army, beyond that of their own interest and appetite. They say that there Is Bitting iii the Bible bd vacating or recognizing Tnsperaoo« Societies, and therefore they tre op posed to then. And yet these were the advocate, of Bible and Missionary Societies and Buodsy School*, when thire «ru not one word in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, about rack aocieties.— The lecturer here recited a fable d> *criptive of the horror* of Intemperance, and pointing oat the in difference of a portion of the church to the aaiva tion of high-spirited and noble young men from a drunkard's grave. Mr W. farther enlarge] upon aome of the de ceptiong In ths uae of the traffic of apirituoul li quors, detailing aome modea of preparing liquors, that eviuently made the stomachs of a portion of the audience conaiderably qualmish. We have not room to tallow the addreaa farther. Stabbing.—On Wednesday evening, between 8 and 9 o'clock, a negro named Warner Garriaon, alave to Richard Davia, had an altercation with another n«gro named Peter, alave to Benjamin Beard, in Clarke ft Hatcher'a stable, concerning aome mule feed. Peter, when cloae preaied by Warner, puihed bim away, waa clinched by War ner, fell, and in the struggle waa stabbed by War ner two or three times in the neck and back part of the head. Dr Parker atated that one wouod in the neck waa a very aerious one, but that be thought Peter would recover. The Mayor, after heariag tbe testimony, committed Warren to Jail (or trial before the Huttings Court during nex 1 week. Amelia Spbinos.—See the advertisement of Mr Willsoo, the proprietor.
