Tiut a great day of reform carne on The slecp in which the apirit of Liberty had been io lon reposing was disturbed j with a mighty effort she hook herself awake and tore away the bolts and unbarred the dunjeons in which the Rights of Man had been loeked for ajes. These rights were seen, recopnir.ed and demanded, by their owners, but were refused to be delivered tip Eight yoars of contention, and blood rolled away ere the decision was made. Unt the cemus of Tvranny was baffled. Freedom triumphed and our Republic sprang into existence. From off her ltar, a (ire was kindled in Mexico, and throug0 twelve long yaars were the cnmbined efforts of Monarchism levelled against it ; hut they were foiled in their attempts, gave over their project; and a sacond Republic was boro. In Guatamnln, Bolivia, Chili, Perii, and La Piata the ame spirti has been roused, withstood and turned back ali opposition, and triumphed in erecting Republics.

She might as'well chain the lightnings ia their course for is as reaisttess and rapid. The course she pumaat cpeaks loud for her philosophy. A potation worthy of England to administer, made of the drejs of cruelty boiled down, is forced upon the Canadian people.

From the Toronto Mirrorof 4pril2Gth. Conversici of Sir Geo. Arthur. On Sunday last, our pious Lt. Governor and suite, at- tcnded divine service in the iVIethodist Chapel. The Rcv. Mr. Stinson asccnded the pulpit at the usuai hour ; and after engnging in prayer, he gave out the hymn, commen cing with " I want a principle within," Sir George appeared to act as a ncnitcnt, and a true Chris tian, from hisentrance into the Chapel, to his departure ; he smote his hreast scveral times, and the Chapel resounded with his cry of ' Lord have mercy on me a sinner." May the Lord ext end to him that mercy which he refused to extend to his fellow men. It is the opinion of many, that he has tasted ofthe sweets of Gospel crace ; that he has ohtained the pearl of great price and that he will honceforth be a burning and shining light amonsst us ! IIow exalted must our friend, Mr. Stinson, appear in the eyes of the breth- ren when it is known, that he has been the humble instrument in the hands of Providence, in brindino over to the true faith, sudi a sinner as Sir George Arthur ! It is common a monorst communicants of the O il high church. to deride and mock every man who obtains that neace. which the world cannot give nor take away within the walls ofa Wcsleyan chapel ; but we trust that Sir George has laid hold of the prize of the high calling, that he will not be ashamed to pur sue that course which secures peace bere and eternai felicity hcreafter.

They do not pos- scss the confidence ofthe coun try, and we don't think they deserve it. We are every day more of opinion, that Upper Canada is very much in want of honcst men in the Assembly and in other public stations ; and until she secures the scrvi ces ofa greater number than areat present doing ali in their power to expatnate the popula- tion, and dry up her resources, she will long continue a spoiled, dissatisfied and bankrupt Pro vince.

These remarks accompany the Proroation Speech of Sir George Arthur to the Upper Canada Legislature, which - 0 has "terminated with very lit tle satisfaction to the public, or benefit to the Province." Its remarks embody some truth perhaps as much as could be expected from sudi nprojcsscd ly liberal organ, whose prin cinles have ever been to change one set of blood-suckers for another without any change in the result, ever making the Provinces " discontented and bankrunt."
