TWMttynooth College bill had occu
pied fke principal share of the consideration
of Parliament for the fortnight preceding
the sailing of'\he Britannia. There re
mained no dolftt of the ultimate success
or the ihinistcrial measure, though it had j
not gone through either house. The pub
lic mind was in a ferment of excitement in
regard to if, and it is likely will continue
so long after its adoption shall have been
announced. The subjoined extract from
an article in Wilmer & Smith’s Times
presents the points that are chafed by it
into such frightful irritation:
“Sir Robert Teel has hazarded much in
permanently endowing Maynooth. There
is no chord in the national mind so sen
sitive—none that (Jiriijs witli an emotion
so keen as that which the bare idea of sup
porting Popery out of the public purse
calls into action. On the principle that
the hatred of the nearest relations is the
most bitter, we may account for the feel
ing which marks the churches of England
and Rome. But dissent is, if possible, in
all the varieties which it assumes, more
intense in its dislike of the scarlet lady
j| than are the orthodox,- and as dissenters
uiuiu uiiu euuow ineir own places ol •wor
ship, a feeling of oppression and injustice
is superadded to sectarian dislike. Recent
events have given full scope tor the dis
play of this hatred of Catholicism; and
knowing the latent power he was evoking^
its strength and durability, the Minister,
in this assault upon the prejudices of his
countrymen and his party, has shown how
far he is prepared to go to make the empire
“united” in feeling as in name. Small as
the boon fs, tt has been gratefully received
in Ireland, Mr. O’Connell, who knows'
no medium in his praise or censure, has
“blarneyed” Peel and Graham in approved
style, and irom me J rCasury Bench ol
St. Stephen's the “soft sawder” is reci
procated.”
In regard to the effect of the discussion
upon this subject, it seems that its conse
quences are not all of them felicitous upon
the public mind at home.
The necessity of sending “a message of
peace to Ireland,” as avowed hy Sir Ro,
hert, before he could pluck up spunk enough
to talk saucy to Mr. Polk about Oregon, is
considered a humiliating exposure of a
national weakness which the more prudent
think the Prime Minister should have con
cealed, It is conjectured by some that an
entire reorganization of parlies will grow 1
out of this debate. Willmcr & Smith’s j
Times indulges a free speculation on the
probability of such an issue. That journal
says:
‘‘A new combination of paities may be
the result, ns in 1829. We Hear of round
robins being signed hy some of the con
stituencies, indicative of notice to quit,
and an election will occur in a year or
two. The admissions, too, of Ministers
lh.1t mnr/> must lip rlnnp fr*i»
avowed intention of Lord John Russell
and the whigs to lay violent hands on the
church revenues in Ireland, w ith which to
endow the Roman Catholic clergy—these
circumstances would seem to point to a
probability of a redistribution of parts
in the political drama, at no distant
day.”
Lord John Russell has laid upon the
table of the House of Commons a series of
resolutions, which he threatens to urge to
a final vote. The first three of them will
open a wide field of debate, of a character
little calculated to add to the repose
and tranquility of either Government or
people:
1. That the present stale of political
tranquility,and the recent revival of trade,
alibi'd to this House a favorable opportunity
to consider of such measures as may tend
permanently to improve the condition of
the laboring classes.
2. That those laws which impose duties
usually called protective tend to impair
the efficiency of labor, to restrict the free
interchange of commodities, and to impose
on the people unnecessary ta^nfion,
3. That the present corn law tends tr
check improvements in agriculture, pro
duces uncertainty in all farming specula
tions, and holds out to the owners and oc
cupiers of land prospects of special advan*
tage which it fails to secure.

doubt that a largo majority of our citizens

interposing no constitutional obstacle t<
the fulfilment of their wishes, leaves the
question to their calm and peaceable ant

President Polk—The one term

Sonic of 1 fie Whig journals at Ihe n^*th
having repeatedly made the charge that
President Ppllt' was shaping his administer
tjoir sp as to run a second term, by
king his appointinenlft to promote his btfn
fe-elefttion, the Washington Ujuonr,-in the
jbllowinjr^emphatic language, stsmpjj the
rdjcgBtion as calumnious: -.J'Xn

War with England-—From the tone of
the following editorials in the New Yoik
-Ljl. -7 — j—j- — - iv.il..* r.»el'.cl, tn. y infer
est, and with the best sources of informa
tion, both from the mother country and the
Canadian government, there is little doubt
that we shall have war.--2V. V. .Iff. Rep.
“No one who observes the ‘signs of the
limes,’ can now doubt that England is now
putting herself in a posture of defence, but
actually preparing for war, should that
great and terrible evil become necossasy.
The speeches in Parliament, the article in
-the best informed British journals, and the
activity in all the naval departments prove
this important fact. It is not that Eng
land is desirous of rekindling the flames of
discord, lint that she has been compelled
j in spite of all her sacrifices for the sake of
tranquility, to lay aside the garb of peace
and put on the armour of war. Perhaps
this will have itsuscs, as it may tell foreign
nations that there is always a point beyond
which human forbesrance will not go.
“England, we arc told by the Duke of
Wellington,cannot wagea‘littlc war.’—
It must he a war upon a grand scale, one

ness, and her rank among the nations of
the earth. Neither can she with any ad
vantage carry on a long war, whietkis so
exhausting to the vital powers *f a coun
try. In a long war, England must add
still more to her national debt, an alterna
tive by no means desirable. Sir Robert
Peel and the Duke of Wellington fully un
derstand this, and their policy seems to
be, that should hostilities unhappily occur
the Italian must make a grand effort, with
all her powers concentrated 1o bring ihe
contest to a speedy conclusion. For this
purpose we have seen that efforts are ma
king to conciliate Ireland; the policy of
the President, too, is such, that he must
secure the support of the great whig party.
When the whig party and with Ireland too
bool, and with the augmented power that
modern science can give to Ihe elements
of destruction, it is supposed that the etr
orgies of the empire can be wielded with a
power that will prove irre«istahle.”
Wonderful Cave.—A new cave, rival
ing Ihe Mammoth cave of Kentucky, has
been discovered in Howard county, Mis-i
souri. The entrance was walled up and
was discovered by accident. It appearfc
to have been visited before and has letters
and Spanish names inscribed on the walls
of the interior. The walls and ceiling of
the interior glisten with a metalic ore,
which was probably the cause of its being
walled up by the first discoverers.
