The power of nu applicant to injure a voter forms a cogent reason why the latter should not permit his conscience to be ensnared by a mere regard to his wordly interests. To resist every solicitation, threat, or bribe, is the bounden duty of every upright elector whose convictions of propriety are on-posed to such influences. But when once his promise is actually given, there is no conceivable plea that can justify its violation. The ballot may cloak his duplicity, and the confessional may pretend to absolve it: yet, as long as the man that sweareth to his hurt and changeth not" is declared in Scripture (fifteenth Psalm) to he -an object of divine approbation, it is plain that the rule invblved.in such applauded fidelity must be imperative upon s every professor of Christianity: and consequently, as ho device can be found to prevent the asking andgivmgdf promisesj no expedient can! be resorted to, consistently with religious principle, to secure hiipunity for their infrmgement. Finally, the ballot can be viewed by Christians no otherwise than as a dexterous contrivance, to protectaman's worldly interests at the expense of his integrity.

But the members of the Legislative Assembly, so far from being without hope, had the experience df a regular progress in reform ever since the report of the committee of 1828. The Canadians, too, so far from suffering under - intolerable oppression, were, by all accounts, in a most enviable condition. With a recklessness, and utter inability to understand their position, without seeming to have the least ability to estimate the relative strengths of Canada and this great and powerful empire, the political quacks of Canada, elated by the success of their little plots to baffle the good intentions of the government, have plunged their poor dupes;info a contest which could not possibly have to them a successful issue. Never did men so richly deserve their fate as these guides df the poor French Canadians. And Mr. Roebuck, great in words as he deems himself, ought by this time to have learnt that there isa material difference between dreaming of large hosts riishing from the United States into Canada, allured by the bait of the to-be-confiscated lands, and the sober reality. Dr. Franklin could not make such long speeches as Mr. Roebuck, for he never, spoke longer at a time thah ten- minutes, but he was a safer political guide; and it is hecause the Legislative Asssembly contained only chatterers, and were without statesmen possessed even of a tithe of his sagacity, that they have madly provoked a contest wjhich could hot possibly be successful, and. which has already produced' shch calamitous results. .
