This regiment has buried men in eleven states besides the Mississippi River and the Golf of Mexico. Colonel Perry commanded tile regiment for two years. Ing has undergone a wonderful change and a desire for annexation is rising up All Over Canada. La a few months in two or three years it most Canada will be knocking at the door of the Union and asking for admission. I have no doubt whatever in regard to it. The current has set in strongly within the last six weeks and is mounting higher and higher every Day. A distinguished Canadian was in Indi Anapolis the other Day and talking on Thia subject said Quot the tide would become irresistible and Why should we resist it Quot said he Quot England Carea nothing for us we Are of no Benefit to the Crown Ahe cannot tax us for the Benefit of her people Only for defense in time of War. Great Britain will offer no objection. Why should Canada remain As she is her interest is not with England but with the United she found that out a few months ago when we established the passport system after the St. Albans raid and when we gave notice of our intention to terminate the reciprocity treaty. Then the people of Canada discovered that their interests were identified with this country and not with great Britain. We May expect with reasonable certainty that Canada will ask admission to this Union before Many months at least before Many years. There too is Mexico. We Are destined absorb Mexico. I entertain no doubt on that Subj to. I confess i do not look Forward to it with any great pleasure myself. If we had the country without the population it tron id be Well enough but i Don t like the feast to which we Are invited and to which we will All sit Down to yet. Mexico has been spoken of As the sick some years ago the emperor of Russia spoke of Turkey a the sick Man. Mexico is the sick Man now. Louis Napoleon has been prescribing for it. He has administered an Imperial dose however which will not lie upon its stomach and it threatens to reject it with such Force As to Send the Austria Pill Clear across the Atlantic. Laughter the to Atman of Union part Sears. A letter is published from or. Henry s. Foote very Well known As a senator both in the United states and in the rebel senates in which he adds his testimony to that already accumulated in regard to the responsibility of the rebel government for the starvation of Union prisoners. He says a o Oft feared to i have this to say a month or two Anterior to the Date of said report i Learned from a government officer of respectability that the prisoners of War then confined in and about Richmond were suffering severely for want of he told me further that it was Manifest to him that a systematic scheme was on foot for subjecting those unfortunate men to starvation that the commissary general or.

Seddon had endorsed the document containing this recommendation affirmatively. I Learned further that by calling upon major Ould the commissioner for Exchange of prison Era i would be Able to obtain further information on this subject. I went to major Ould immediately and obtained the desired information. Being utterly unwilling to countenance such barbarity for a moment regarding indeed the Honor of the whole South As concerned in the affair i proceeded without delay to the Hall of the House of representatives called the attention of that strangely constituted body to the subject and insisted upon immediate committee of investigation. I Grieve to say that this was at first refused and i was most acrimonious by Oens Rcd by several members for introducing the subject in the House at All. But i resolved to have an investigation and to put a atop to such Vandalia atrocities if i could or at least to Rescue Oay own character from menaced infamy by withdrawing from All further connection with the Confederate cause at once i introduced a second Resolution next morning and finally succeeded in getting 4he committee raised. Tou will find in addition to the report made by the committee a considerable mass of testimony of various kinds reported with it and among other documentary proofs the official communication of the commissary general above referred to and the endorsement of or.

Church and the old school and new school synods of the presbyterian Church meet at Madia it the first Ipp a Taiber and the latter in october. V the Rit Tubi or the what. From the Boston advertiser. A pamphlet Baa recently been Isaad by or. William elder of the Treasury apartment on the question Quot How the Western state can become the Imperial Power in the or. Eldar a answer a Well reasoned and sustained by the amp est statistical evidence like most that Appawara from his pen a is that to secure Empire the Western states must aim at Industrial Independence they must Foster their manufactures depend upon the Home Market and not the foreign diversify their pursuits and in Short do almost every thing that the modern school of free Trade advises them not to do. He remarks upon the insignificance of the foreign demand for their exports As compared with the Domestic shows How remarkable has been their gain in some interests fostered by the enforced protective system of the last four years and Points out some warnings which they have already received As to an excl Eive dependence upon agricultural Pur suits. But some people we suspect will shrink a Little at or. Elder a suggestion that the West is to be an Quot Imperial Power in the it is not easy for All to reconcile themselves to the thought that Empire is not to have Ite seat near the Atlantic How Ever we May Christen our states and Bow Ever we May flatter ourselves As to their strength and Prosperity. The marvelous growth of the West is the object of admiration and rejoicing As one among the Many marvels of which we Are fond of boasting but naturally enough there is Little reluctance to face the fact As or. Elder puts it a that by a judicious improvement of its advantages the West May make itself the seat of Imperial Power May secure Paramount influence Superior numbers and wealth and so control the Desti Nies of the great nation of the future. This idea however is not one which need be repulsive in any aspect and least of All need it be so to new England men. The West As or. Eider understands it comprises the slates lying in the valleys of the Ohio Missouri and upper is Ohio Indiana Illinois Missouri Kentucky Wisconsin Iowa Michigan Minnesota Kansas and Nebraska. This body of states is the very heart of our Union they contain already one third of our population and their resources Are so Rich and varied that we May properly look for a great increase of this ratio. Indeed if we consider their Capa Oil it a Natwa kor tree ii 8eat of Quot Fie strength and wealth of our country Wrhen it shall begin to approach its full development. If anybody is narrow enough to dislike the Prospect of a fulfilment of the destiny which thus Seema to be set before that magnificent Region the new englander should not shrink from it at any rate but recalling the part which new England has had in building up those states should feel a genuine Pride in their maturing strength. According to the last Ceneus of the natives of new England then living in the United states 560,336 had left the new England states and of these 283,838 were resident in the eleven states and territories comprised in or. Elder s Quot West. That is to say one half of our new England men who have emigrated in spite of the attractions of Gold mining and every other inducement held out elsewhere have gone into that Central Block of states and in fact nearly As Many have gone thither from the new England states As the latter have Given to each other. To the people of this Section the Ide of moving into that Western country has been As familiar As the idea of moving from Maine to Massachusetts or moving from new Hampshire to Vermont and they have done it As generally. And it is to be remembered also that the nativity of the inhabitants now ling is far from representing the new England element in the West. We must add to the natives of these slates those also who Are of new England parentage the seed of an earlier emigration before we can measure completely the stake which the East has in the Success of the West. Passing by these consider Iiona however a which if properly weighed will disarm every feeling of selfish jealousy a we have yet to see any sufficient argument for the notion sometimes maintained that the full development of the West will tend to the injury of the Industrial Enterprise of the East. The foundations of Bur Prosperity we Trust Are not so narrow that full employment for our labor and capital is Only to be insured by keeping Idle the resources of any other Section. It is forgotten by men who entertain this idea that although a teeming population should improve every Mill site in the West it will increase its wants in proportion As it extends its Industry. The Busy operatives whom the West will employ Whan it properly improves ita resources will not Only be to Many thousand a added to the Popup lation of that Section but every Man of them will have wants greater than those of the agricultural labourer at the Start and constantly increasing As Prosperity to it Cra Aiea. Compi ate Industrial Develt ment is Dot a Dull round with a Barren adm Ian by for ita Reault but cumulative incr aaa ing Tao Apalit a for pro notion at Avalo stage and opening to Man new and higher wants to be satisfied. With Thia truth before us a Soaad not Faar that tel time will avar Ooma when either Semuon of Der Odua iry will Eleasa requiring the help of to a other a Aoh satisfying in its kind the of big ing and growing wanta which Prosperina id Tatry will Excita in All. I aft of need Ira fair that tha Netiva Nina to new England will Ever fail of discovering something which it can Supply to the great want even when the latter shall Hava fulfilled its destiny and become tha Center of tha wealth and Power of the Union. Tha Sasar Vilva Oak try Aad the Ca Kolle Charon. The Cincinnati enquirer state Sentinel and other Sheet of like Politica seem disposed to Taka the Catholic Church under their Protection and Are expressing a great Deal of affected anxiety lest Quot the party in Power Quot now that the slavery question is nearing a solution May set on foot a crusade against that Church. If anything could make the Catholic Church a Subj not of political discussion it would be its unfortunate championship by a political press that has made itself odious in consequence of adhering to the rebels during our late struggle. We Are aware that a Large majority of male members of that Church have voted with the democratic party but its organs Are guilty of base ingratitude when they attempt to create a prejudice against the Church for that cause. It will be a great Deal better off without the officious Friendship or Volunteer support of such sheets at least until there is some Remote Prospect of a danger that now exists nowhere except in the disordered imaginations of a pack of bankrupt politicians who week to attach themselves to any and every organisation or individual that they think has strength enough to stay their they care a Little for the Catholic or any other Church As a hog would for a suit of sunday Clothea but if they can use any of them for their partisan purposes they will gladly do so with an utter indifference to the effect the association May have upon the journal. Can Betels again held off eel those persons who express such violent alarm lest some of the leaders of secession come again into Power and who build up theories of proscription and violence against the great masses of the people on this hypothesis seem to be ignorant or oblivious of the oath required of office holders under the Law of Congress of july 2, 1862. The president s amnesty restores undoubtedly to All rebels except to those included under the head of Quot exceptions Quot and who require special Pardon their original rights with one single but very important omission which is occasioned by the Law above mentioned. In order to hold office the rebel has to swear that he never voluntarily bore arms again it the Unea of hit lust a Rev tit gave countenance encouragement counsel or Aid to any person whatsoever in arms or hostility against the government that he never sought nor occupied any position of authority great or Small in the Leathern confederacy and that he has been from first to last a supporter of the Constitution and the Union. Any person who takes this oath falsely is guilty of perjury and will be tried and punished for perjury and in addition to the Ordinary penalties it is provided that the first offence shall incapacitate the offender from any future rights of citizenship. The Law and the oath and the penalty attached to it Are As Plain As words can make them and what is the use talking about rebels resuming their old places if there were no other barriers in their Way a so Long As this strict proscription holds its own Henry water Davis in verge Laff Raga. Henry Winter Davis was the orator of the Day at the Chicago Celebration. He took Strong ground in favor of negro suffrage. A said there was a class of men in the South who were Alysya Loyal and True the coloured population. They should have the privilege of throwing their votes into the scale and if this were allowed them no fears need be entertained of the result. We had made successful soldiers of the Blacks. If they were fit to fight for us they were fit to vote for us. They were equal to White rebels on the Battle Field they should be equal to them at the ballot Box. Whether we look at Thia question in a humanitarian Light or otherwise the safety and perpetuity of our free institutions require that tha elective franchise should be extended to All men regardless of color who were Loyal to the government and the great principles of human Liberty. The great pm Sioa list. It has been Many limes said now that tha War is Over we must set about paying the expenses. The National debt will soon be placed in a position to be constantly diminishing by the methods of taxation now in use. But there is one obligation which a cannot for Dily discharge which will be valid against the nation for Man years and that is the obligation to pension those who Hava deserved Well of their country. A can hardly judge of the extent to which thie will reach but since the War has closed the claims Ara rapidly accumulating and Ara arranged a fast As Poa Qibla. It a stated that inca the War began 84,000 pension have been a aued 34,000 to invalid soldiers and 50,-000 to widow Mother and minor Chil Dran. Tha payment to pensioners the past year Hava amounted to 99,000,000, and Whan All pah Aiona arising from tha War Ahall Hava bean granted tha annual expense will a about 113,000,000. The net Procedda of the Chicago fair of imprint to 9200,000, of we que goes to the Christian commission and. The balance will be equally Divide cd bet Aei the soldiers Hope and the sanitary com minion. Tropical non Obaob. We xxx bakasa8, fix Applis and Oranous come from. Very Many of our Rei Idera have seen during their Down town walks a group of schooners lying in the slip just below Ful to ferry All of them filled to the gun Rale with Rich and fragrant fruit from tropical dines. It May not be generally known however that these Small vessels bring to Thia City All those luscious fruits which attract the attention of the gourmand give Delight and reef to the sick bed and without which our cosmopolitan life would be almost Dee Noel unendurable. Strange to say although it is never the Leaa True there is but Little information to be gathered regarding the scope and general character of Thia tropical fruit Trade. It seems to have no positive Law governing it nor do those engaged in it appear to be of the class usually found in a bus Inera of such importance. The vessels engaged in collecting and bringing fruit to Thia port Are mostly British Bottoms and Are not at All regular traders. Some of these Peculiar Craft Are represented to be wrecker from Nassau cubs Windward islands etc., and they Are Large dealer in old junk. Wrecked goods vessels Cottons and Iron work Are their customary plunder the Supply of which proving Short they Betake them solves to the fruit growing districts and Load their vessels with bananas Pine apples Cocoa nuts oranges and Lemone. Loaded with a Rich cargo of these luscious edibles the vessel put for new York or whatever port seems most desirable to them and forthwith put themselves and their freight into the hands of commission merchants who see to the disposing of the cargo. A number of american vessels Are however yearly chartered by the merchants dealing in such commodities and these latter regularly and in an orthodox payments for fruit at the plantations Are generally made in specie occasionally varied however by bartering of goods when a Captain goes out on a speculating tour of of his own. In such cases flour sugar Tea and new England rum form the leading articles of merchandise the rum Prepend rating. Some few Cottons and Gingham for the natives form a part also. These vessels Trade along the South american coast touching at cuban Aud West Indian ports including Kingston Jamaica. Bananas mostly come from bar Acos and Matanzas Cocoa Nuta from Brazil Pine apples from Cuba Matanzas and bananas Are culled and sold in the same manner. Altogether the tropical fruit Trade is a curious and instructive study both on account of the seeming fund of interesting information to be gained and the almost insurmountable difficulty in obtain id n. Y. Times. Designation of commissioner Honoway. Speaking of the resignation of Hon. D. P. Hollo Way commissioner of patents the scientific american says or. Holloway has held this important is Ilion for Over four years during which time the business of the office has largely increased. Like All other commissioners he has encountered some opposition but we do not hesitate to say that in our judgment he has discharged his duties faithfully and generally to the satisfaction of those who have had claims before the office. It is very much in his favor that he has always proved the steadfast Friend of tha inventor. In this respect his record is on of which be May in his retirement remember with satisfaction. The fruit from these climes is represented by dealers As being unusually poor owing to an unprecedented drought of Over three month s duration. The Pine apples Are especially lacking in Quality As Well As size some specimens not being As Good As Quot second cuttings Quot of former Bonsnas Are middling while scarcely any change is to be perceived in in fact the Trade is brisk but tha Supply is very Short. It is astonishing How much waste ensues from the fruit decaying while in transit for this port whole cargoes sometimes being lost in this manner and the Crew Are always engaged while on the voyage homeward in culling out the diseased fruit still sometimes they do not succeed in checking this great drawback to a cheap Supply. Each vessel carries from 3,000 to 6,000 Bunches of bananas and 12,000 to 45,000 dozen Pine apples or Cocoa Nuta on each trip. They frequently bring a few barrels of rare sea shells half a dozen or so of turtles or terrapins and in the Case of the foreign vessels already alluded to a considerable Quantity of old junk and old Iron constitute a portion of their the voyage of a fruit Drober generally consist of from ten to fifteen Days although from Cuba the trips Are naturally Shorter. Box fruit consisting of oranges Lemons and limes come mostly from the Island of Sicily and the vessels Are mostly Laden at the ports of Palermo and Messina and the fruit is conveyed to this port in sailing vessels of the larger class and steam vessels. The Menton Lemons usually known in the Trade As Quot French Lemons Quot generally begin to come in about the Middle of february and their season ends the latter part of june or the first of july sometimes lasting until August in usually prosperous seasons. The Malaga Orange and Lemons come into Market about August and remain until january thus completing the year. In cuban fruits the tha tra4 is always Lively on account of the regularity of the supplies and the ready Sale always found for such fruit. Havana oranges generally make their first appearance in november and Jat through the Winter until March. Limes also arrive in Large quantities from Cuba and form no inconsiderable part of the Trade. Barcaba banana and Cocoa nuts have their seasons from March to july when the carthaginian fruit assumes full Sway. Matanzas Pina apples last from May through to july and the. Nassau fruit the Quot sugar loaf Quot species come in from May until the end of Auguet. An instructive lesson might be Learned regarding the mystery of the cheap fruit constant hawked about the streets of the City by a visit to one of the Schoonard a Lila barging ita fragrant cargo. Pina apples now Range Fryni 910 to 916 per Hundred according to Quality and size. But it is easily seen How Apple women manage to make a living we ii the 8raotator observes several of these Efterp Siag a Millers but a peaks aft Maud a per Hundred. A Tiu lower Grade a reached by paying. 92 per bar for Pine Applona almost billiards. As a great Many people Don t know How to play billiards we make Way for a description of the game from the pen of does tricks in order that they May remain in ignorance no longer. He says a game of billiards consists of punching Ivory balls about on a table covered with Green cloth that looks like half an acre of Meadow land with an India rubber Fence about it. The balls Are punched with Long wooden ramrod with Wax on the Little end to save the Wood and leather from wearing out. You take your ramrod and rub some Chalk on the table end then you lean Over the table then you squint then you lift your leg then fiddle a Little on your left band with your ramrod then you punch your Ball. If your Ball hits the other Man s Ball and some other Ball you be done a big thing and you it us it no a lot of buttons that Are Strung on a wire. This is All there is in a game of billiards. Anybody can punch billiards i can and maybe you can. The president has changed the place of imprisonment of Mudd Arnold o laugh in and Spangler from the Albany Penitentiary to the dry Tortugas. Jeff.
