Till: l'tlMAS AFFAIR OF LAST JL'.NK. On tho Gth of .Tune last, iu violation of our neutrality laws, a military expe dition and enterprise against the British North American Colonics was projected and attempted to be curried on within the territery and jurisdiction of the Uni ted States. In obedience to tho obliga tion imposed upon the Executive by tho (.'ensiitittioii to see that the laws are faithl'elly executed,' all citizens were warned, by jirociaiualiou, against taking part i:t or aiding such unlawful proceed ings, and tho proper civil, military and. naval ollicers were directed to lake all necessary measures for the ctifotceiuent ol the laws. The expedition failed, but it has not been without its painful cou seijuences. Some of our citiaeus who, it was alleged, were engaged i:i the exiic liiion, w-re captured and have been biought to trial, as lor a capital 1. House, iu the Province of Canada Jul in. -nt and sentene.! of death have been pronoune'd against some, while whets have been uei;tiitted. Fully be I . vi'ig in the maxim id government, t'1.11 severity of civil punishment for iiii.-gui'led persons who have engaged iu 1 revolutionary attempts winch oisasier- niisiy failed, is unsound and unwise, such leji.e-entalioi.s have been made to tho staiiJ a better chance of obtaining for giveness. Hut this, i.i ,tead of being an argument in favor 'cf your U'Cttiue, tiecim to me a very strcitg r.rguincnt ?gai;::.t it. For, First. It dishonors the character cf Mary. 'h; is presented to us in the Ferlrituro as a very exce llent persijn ; ft tolo ad.!rcs-;ed as ' l.ivhly favored" anJ ' blessed among women." Put you take from her one of the most c.isential elements ol a righteous char acter, a.nl make her very unlike God ; so tuuoh so that sits could not rejoice in the cjcrcisc of d'vino justice could net join in t!ioe Alleluias tliat we read 1. 1 ., ....... ...

For they have shed the blood of saiuls and prophets, flttd thou hast given their blood to drink ; for they are worthy." " Alleluiit ; Sal vaiioa, aud glory, and honor, and potter, unto the Lord our God : for true t.nd righteous arc bis judgments fir Ife ha'.h judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her foriiieat'mus, and Lath avenged the blood of his set-' vanfs. And again they said Alleluia. And her smoke rose up forever und cv. er." If Mary i3 ail mercy ami no justice, we may be very sure that a just God will never resign tho judgment seat to her. And with yonr notion of the saints' iuterccesreti, wa might, (without irreverence) imagine some such colloq-e.y in this : J.'.n-. Father Aj mighty, I beseech thee have mercy upou this poor sinner, who, burdened with bis sins, has cried to me for help. The Fullifi: And why did he come to thee ? Have I not said, Look unto Mo, and be ye saved, all thectids 01 the earth : fori am God, and there is none else. Why then does be look to a crea ture, instead 0: God ? ...
