LETTERS FROM THE NORTH. NO. VI. Quebec, September 7th, 1853. I visited this morning the famous plains of Abraham, where the great and decisive blow for supremacy in Canada was struck in 1759. They are not more than a mile from the cen tre of Quebec, and one of the broadest and cleanliest streets in the city—extends almost to Wolfe's Monument. This Monument is a plain granite shaft, and is erected on the spot where he died victorious. I was sur prised to notice the date of its erection—lß49 —one century after his great victory. It was also the work of the officers commanding the British forces in Canada, and not the Govern ment. " There was an old Monument there before that one was built," the driver in formed me, " but it was very much broken and defaced" —whether by time orbyQue-i bee mobs he did not say. A score or two of ragged boys infest the Plains, and drive a noisy and most annoying trade in those incx hetnslible relics with which all celebrated bat tle fields abound. They have been in many instances sold from the same fields for more than a century without the supply diminish ing at all. Tire impudent little rascals on the Plains of Abraham had only old bullets and rust v pioces of iron for sale—but at Lu.ndy's Lake, a Godless youth offered me the bones of the Americans (who lellin that memorable fight)—roughly cut into crosses, hearts and rings. It was a notorious fact some twenty years ago, that there existed near Saratoga, a manufactory of relies, and that broken, rusty sword blades, and broken bayonets, were made in large quantities, and sold to the simple gulls, who flock tw fields once bap tised in blood. Montcai.mv the chivalric, noble and brave, but vanquished General, was buried within the precincts of the Ursuline Convent, hence no monument to his memory has been erected on the Plains of Abraham. The English, however, with the generosity and nobility of a great nation, have omitted no tribute to the memory of their heroic opponent. Upon a handsome tablet to bis memory, in the Chapel of the Convent, placed there by Lord Ayi.- ):kr, I found the following beautiful inscrip tion: Honceur & Montcalm ! Le destin en lui derobant La Victoria, L'a recompense par Une mort glorieu s e. The following translation will do for those of your readers who do not understand French: Honor to Montcalm ! Fate, in depriving him of victory, Recompensed him, By a glorious death. In the Public Garden of Quebec, there is an appropriate and beautiful Monument erected to commemorate the joint memories of the great leaders who fell at the battle of the Plains of Abraham. It is sixty-five feet high. On one side of the column is inscribed the word "Wolfe," and on the other the name of "Montcalm," whilst upon still anoth er side is chiseled the following most ap propriate inscription:' Mortem, 1 irtos, Com tnvnem famom: Historian Monumenicm.— Poster it an Dcdit." This monument was the work of private subscription, and is one of the most beautiful instances I have ever known of the generosi ty of the English to the memory of an ene my. Such things almost make me forget the fate of Napoleon, and the barbarities of mcunnnent^oln^l,^ 1 ; SKfefflFAi and Woi.r*, the subscription* were I heard, exclusively made by the English residents. Although French is universally spoken by the English and Scotch citizens of Quebec, yet a stranger discovers at once that the most respectable people here are the English mil itary and civil officials and the English bar risters. There is not much wealth, but a vast amount ot handsome silver-gilt gentility among the fashionable people of Quebec, and the imi tation article looks almost as well as the pure metal. Hence families keep up an incessant struggle with poverty —in many amusing ef forts to keep up appearances. Quebec is a place of honorable exile for the youngest sons of England's knights and lords. The fortunes of all this respectable, but needy class of young gentlemen, at home and in the colonies "would not, in the aggregate, equal that of a wealthy cotton planter—yet al though a multitude of zeros with no valuable unit on the left would represent their pecunia ry condition, yet if their pretensions to re spectability and family could be subjected to an arithmetical test, tliey would be valued at manv millions. To these leaves and stems of nobility and aristocracy—for they do not rise to the digni ty ot sprigs—the minutest colonial offices, civil and military, are acceptable. Here they possess a position and influence to which they were of course strangers at home. Where there are more than enough lords, knights, and members of parliament, of course the forty ninth cousin of the duke of Doodle is nobo dy. He cannot get into the church, the em bassies are crowded with attaches, and to suc ceed at the bar talent is necessary. There are always the daughters of rich tradesmen ami successful commoners, ready to be knocked down to bankrupt lords, with the roots of tluir genealogical trees deep in Saxon soil —but the wife even of a successful cheesemonger in England thinks nothing of the remote and poor relative of a lord.— Hence, the forty-ninth cousin of the illustrious Duke of Doodle gets, from the Canadian magnate, a government office, or from the war department an ensign's place in the army. There is a pretty tale of a fisherman's finding, as he supposed, a poor miserable creature confined in a small casket which he had drawn up in his net. Yielding to the urgent entreaties of the prisoner, he released him, When the feeble wretch is transformed into a monster ten thousand feet high, and two thousand feet across the shoulders. New the authorities who manufacture thousands ot clerks and subordinate officials every week in Downing street, have no conception how pro digiously they grow when transplantedto the colonies. To"simply assert, that they become too stout for their amplest trousers, would convey no idea of the rapidity with which thev liecoino great men in a place like Ca nada. They are the leaders of the fashion in cer tain circles of dilapidated and slovenly Qt e iii.c- They do not wear their honors meekly, not at all—"they go rough shod over mercan tile people with a Hundred times their means, and barristers of the "jjjony with a thousand times their brains. WflHfcver the army and government officers ofTr country are tilled with the poor relatives of old and wealthy families, who have no recommendations but family influence, you may set it down hs a role, that the youngest clerk always outs wells the chief of the department, and tlie softest ensign of yesterday's translation from the academy, or nursery, swaggers along the streets with an air that the oldest Major Ge neral would scarcely venture to assume. This, wc suppose, illustrates what the poet meant when lie said, that a certain class in society darted rashly into places where angels very unwillingly venture —for that is the prose of the poetry 1 think. There is a vast amount of pinch bock in qcKUJtc society, from tb« PRICE ONE pftsit Governor General down • clerks. '® ensigns and The colonial system nt Governor-General the t 9 tlle Majesty's power and inCV of Her And as there is with all Ensli.hm™ • a weakness for display, the Uorernw-oS? ml, in a very small way, ?oes through X motions of royalty itself ft e with the upper house of the Canadian Pariu ment with much form and ceremony. L'non such occasions, the galleries are filled ladies in full dress, the Governor-Gene ral, clothed in the robes of office, m«unta a pretentious looking throne, and reads his speech to the Colonial Home of Lord*. They have given him a huge mace, which co*t fire hundred dollar*, and although chiefly of brass, it is washed with gold. W-hen this little great man holds levee*, Jcc. &c., there are many insects, smaller than himself, who seek to" be presented, and feel proud of the honor ever after. Greatness on a minute scale, strikes you very amusingly in Quebec. Well-bred people speaking French, certainly with uncommon purity for Englishmen, and English women practice the manners and customs of large old England establishments, in small and uncomfortable houses. Men, who can afford to keep but one horse, har ness him to a vehicle large enough for two. and then make him tug up the steep streets of Quebec, with a huge flunkey in livery showing the calves of his legs in sfiort breech es and cotton continuations. No petty commissary or treasury clerk can transact the business of his department without having a huge red-coated soldier stalking up and down all day on the pavement in front of his office. The proceedings of their courts of justice are cumbered by the same unne cessary and ludicrous formal nonsense. I saw this morning, a sergeant's guard of braw ny Highlanders apparently escorting to prison a few ragged wretches, whom the redoubta ble Captain White, assisted either by the energetic Tyler, or the vigilant Tkueheakt, would have taken, without rone or handcuffs, two hundred miles. It is both ludicrous and and melancholy to see this poor, ancient, worthless and exhausted colony tottering feebly along under a load of absurd and an tiquated ceremonial and formal nonsense.— The mere shadow of royalty, as exercised in Canada, is more costly, and the ceremonial more elaborate than that employed by the chief executive officer of our great Republic. The men who have impressed me most fa vorably in Quebec are the superior officers in command of the regiments. They are generally men who have seen hard and long service. Many of them are grey haired old men, but still Captains and Lieutenants. The possessions of Great Britain are so extensive, that some of the officers stationed here, have done lons and good service in China and India. What a strange life must that of an English officer be! One year he is in Cal cutta,, aud the next in Quebec. One of the officers was pointed out to me who had lost an arm during the wars in India, and another who had received a wound in China. The officers who have won lau rels and seen hard service, are modest, quiet intel ligent men, accomplished in their profession, and many ot them well versed in general literature and the modern languages. I attended the Established or English Episcopal Church, a few days ago, and fouud many a war worn soldier meekly par taking of the elements of the holy sacrament.— There do not appear to be in Quebec, very many of the noisy, roysteritig, betting, horse racing, dis sipated heroes, that figure aoolten in the pages of our popular novelists. Indeed, the position of a Captain of Infantry, in the British army, without in fluential friends. or means of support beyond the regular pay, is not one to inspire joviality or light heartedness of any kind. Nor is- promotion so rapid during pea««, as to keep the hopes of an officer constantly aroused.— The hosts of grey haired Captains and Lieutenants, would lend an uninformed stranger to suppose that to attaia the rank of a general officer, such men would have to reach the age of the Wandering Jew.

The Time* of yesterday notices the intimation in a Washington letter to the Enquirer, that the Admin istration will never take up the Pacific Road as a government measure; but that Congress may as sist the enterprise with appropriations of public land. The Times remarks upon this that the State Rights Democracy has been always understood as repudiating the distinction between an appropria tion ot the public land» and an appropriation of the public money to works of Internal Improvement— If therefore the Administration approves of the ap. propriation of public land to this object, the Times contends that it will place itself in direct antago nism to the strict constructionists. The Times ani madverts npon the squabbles of the New York I>,-mot-rats, and it refers to the vigorous assaults upon the Washington I'nion of the Petersburg Dem ocrat for its alleged misrepresentations of the Ad ministration. But, the Times concludes, the Ad ministration has given no token whatever of its dis approbation of the Union's course. Yesterday's Mail notices with approbation the ad vertisement ot the Board of Public Works for pro posals to furnish the State with a certain amount of Railroad iron, See., the iron to be manufactured on the track. The Whig has another article on the surplus in the Treasury—contending that it accrued during the only full Presidential term the Whigs have had, and that euch a thing has not happened to any of the several full terms for which the Democrats have held the Administration of the Government. It considers the result due more to the economy of the Whig Administration, than to the tariff ot '4€.— As the Democrats were unused to such a surplus says the Whig, like individuals unused to handling much cash, when they came into possession of it they were much troubled as to what they should do with it, and hence the propositions to spend it in building the Pacific Itailioad, &c. The Whig, as well as the Tunes, notices the Enquirer's cor respondent, who intimates that an appropiation of land to aid the construction of the Pacific I'ailroad, may he made by government. The Whig, al though (as does the Times,) considering such an appropriation as much at war with the principles of States Rights Democracy as an appropriation of money from the Treasury, concludes that if the Democrats of Virginia decide such an appropria tion to be constitutional, and accept aid in that way to Internal Improvements, our State taxes may be very much reduced thereby. The Emjuieer has an article on Woman s Rights in which is told the very good story ot a Bloamer requesting a train conductor to get a gentleman to vacate his seat for her.

Wo know the Georgia very well, and so far aa we could guess, when we saw her at New York in May last she is an excellent Teasel. The passengers held a meeting on the 7th, while off Cape Henry, in which they praised Captain Budd, of the Georgia, for his coolness and good conduct during the hour of danger, and blew np tbe owners, for having allowed the steamer to leave New York in a leaky condition, and with her pwnp* ehoked with ashes, so that none were fit for use. The raeet ing also stated there were no sails on board for the main and mizzen masts, and that what they h»d were unfit for seivice in a gale. Captain Budd, of the Georgia, will return to New York for repairs, an d thinks that the Georgia, after she U pumped out, and her machinery cleared of coal an aahej, can be navigated with safety.

Before leaving, he- wrote a let ter to the jailor, eaying that he had been taken oat at the top of the jail by aa unknown stranger, who drew a dagger and threatened to kill him if he re fused to go. By some means he had been furnish ed with aa. auger and other implements, with, which he made hi* way through the roof, and then let himself down with his blankets and sheets. A. reward of $-100 is offered for his apprehension. Temperanck in Georgia—The Whig and Dem ocratic candidates for the- office of Governor of Georgia, have jointly published a card as their an g Arer to the interrogatories relative to their position on the Temperance cause. They declare their warm solicitude for its advancement; but deprecata its connection with politics. As to the matter ot proposed legislation on the subject they decline to express any* opinion, as no particular form of ac tion has been determined upon and as-the details of of a liquor may involve constitutional point* for the consideration of the Governor. Therefore they say it would be improper for cither to comj mit himself on the subject iu the canvass. Soldiers of-1812. —A meeting of the soldiers of 1812, tsiok place-in Philadelphia on Saturday eve ning to commemorate the battle and victory of Lake Erie.

The Montgomery.

An Ibon Palmetto.—The Charleston papers notice a»lron Palmetto tree as large a* life, very ingeniously manufactured by Mr. C. Werner, of that city. The whole structure is 30 feet high aad weighs 27,000 lbs. It ii ot iron, except the leaves, which nre ot copper. It is said to ben most exqui site representation of the tree. Transhipment in Lynchburg.—ln order mora fully to understand how the expense of tranship ment in Lynchburg in to be avoided, we copy tho following from the Lynchburg Republican: "Any person in Richmond having freights to for ward to the Southwest, can from any paper pub lished here, »y examining the advertisements of the Railroad Company, tell exactly what the cost will be to any point on the line of the road, by for warding the money to the Treasurer of the com pany, his goods will pass through without being seen by a commission merchant in the city."* Kffects ok the Spirit Happing Humbug.— A man named David \V.
