OUR COLONIAL POLICY-THE CAl^adian REVOLT. . Times-^The.interest annexed to the state of the Canadas has by np means subsided with that open and transient insuri;ection, which was rather the expression of mischiefs Jong perv^idiri^ both provinces than in itself the substance of such mischiefs. "Whatever may have been the causes of the outbreak, they, at least, have been but partially affected'^ the course or termination of the sfiort-lived civil 'Vrar. The evil spirit of a coarse and turbulent democracy has not been eradicated from the minds of that fection, that ciimihsd, and we trust feeble, faction, which lent itself to the machinations of Mr. iMackehzie. Hope may have been crushed ambng them, biit hatred has not, and if there exl^t grievances which ought to be redressed, the raw maierSil of rebeUion wiU siiU be there ready, to extend itself and to be brought again into action.. So, in Lower Canada^ a fear of Enofland may have been inspired by the --rebent overthrow of the several bodies which assailed the British troops;;buit ha^^ conciliated ^y terror, aiid ihe vi^h'^^^^^^ off the yoke of England williliardiy^ha^ by.the discom- 'fttilre and disgirace which tfe England has just . inflicted dttthem^ Our wbJ-k, therefore, is but'half done, or &r less uiah'half; Themain cause of insurrection in either province has not yet been touched; in Upper .Canadb, the-^jj^ecMoa" pf the cpo^aratively.iew,i4>i iitp^Jiiw^iiNivim^c^ for aiid defiance of ^^ai^pei^^id^^^ no :doubt Ijeen giiined, _-o^^al:we:^^ for such a pur4 'pbse;. fButdi^ Miail gqqd.a^ must aCTee, it .were better at, once to ,icastr.loose the whole ofvBiilash �North Americactlian to govan it otheHyise than through the loyalty and affe'ctioiB5;of ats people^ it  is tasaiifesfr no-thingf hjis yet beendoneto improve in that respect our relation mm'the; cbim to diininisii the chance of futBure di^twrfjbanc^^ a slender ^ipspect^oi^iyifi^ It is true that one -adyantagei and no small one, has been gained, with regard to anothi^ olasis of cOnsideratipns^we mean the full and palpable exposure of the motives by which the insurgents, both French and Britishj were actuated Ithroi^libut 'tlie whole of ;,their seditious and perverse proceedmgs.

The purpose tiow coitfessed, - the end .but recently proclaimed, as. \^eU "byr, the ,Papine faction as by Mackenzie and his pirate gang, was^nota constitutionalredress of gtievan'ces,' or reparation for injuries, or guarantee of the public money, ot security against future wronjg, but an absolute aiid final revolt in both provinces against the *^ baneful doinihion of Great Britain." Revolution, therefbrie, not reform of any kind, stands forth at this ihoment the recogiiizied'purpose of all those petitions, remonstrances, decljmaatipris in and out of the'British Parhament, in and out of tlie.-psembly; of Lowler Canada,' WhicTi for fouir of five years' papt .have made redress of grievances their stalking-Thorsie and pretext. Thus, at least, the. grounds of our'future measures are sensibly cleared, and the goverhmehtof Great Britain need not mix up with its deubetationistouehiiig'the policy henceforth to be pursued towards Canada any reference to, or notice of, the frothy violence of these un-pirincipled men, whose love of constitutional liberty" was aU a wicked fraud, their ^biisy pa,triotism rank hypocrisy, their complaints and denunciations uoa? et pra3terea landed ipterest,, who, with the com laws, in their mouth, will have snapped at imaginary savings linder the: new-pbor law, and-so lost the substance through greediness affCr shadow! ^ ^ , i ; ' , ; ''X', ._V.MILll^Ry.LEGISLATQRS.
