The o' TrIM thiuks thie aflfair a sort of hint Sthalit our Government is not pleased with the Confederation of the British American Provinces, but argues as we set such an extraordinary value (on union we ought not to grudge the advantage oh the same privilege f to our neighbors. The T"IltEs thinks, however, that nobody has any busi ness to interfere with us in a per.. fectly legitimate transaction, and says: "In making this purchase the United States are buying a European Sproprietor out of the American con, rtinent, and promoting, at a very Scheap rate, their favorite doctrine of national- destiny. It is within the present century that they bought France out of Lousiana, at a cost of sixty millions of francs. In the case of Russian America-soon, we sup pose, to receive some new designa tion---the value received is almost purely political, and that, no doubt, Sshould attract our notice. But. be sides that we have no title to inter fere, we could allege none but I speculative reasons for interfering. We are inot curtailed by this trans- I action of a signe right, privilege, or advantage. Our frontiers remain exactly as they were, and we have exactly the same access-neither more nor less-to the sea, The only real difference is this, that our neighbors will be of a difleret chars I actor." -The priests at Beziers petitioned r recently the municipal authorities to e cover with a veil a picture recently c given to the museum of that town by the emperor 1!
