" It is quite evident,? says a Montreal correspondent, referring to the public meetj - ' i ing in Quebec in favor ot annexation, tna .England desires to get rid ot the burden of providing for our own defense'.by granting .us a certain kind of independence " and, if we are to reiy on rumors;coming, irom mgn 'sources, the plan for a Vice-royalty is more probable than is generally imagined, the visit of Prince Arthurbeing the opening scene in the first act. Will Canadians ac cept it? Will the States allow it ? Sir A, T.j Gait's sudden trip io Europe has given rise to many conjectures. When? the ex- Minister of Finance was made a Knight, he wrote to England to ascertain if his 'accept ance of the proposed honor would interfere with-the free expression of his ideas" on tin- depeadence, and was answered that it would ;not. This fact gives a certain color to the JWur, Governor, and in 1364 gave Abraham rumor that he has gone over at the request! Lincoln a heavy majority for President. In of Mr. Gladstone, with whom it is stated, he is on very good terms. Canadianaministers refuse to listen to the wishes of the English ministry, the latter will, select Mr, Gait as their champion, and afford him; an 'oppor tunity to test his views on emancipation.

We have the following from the Wash ington Repvblican; i)f Thursday, and as the opinion of the official organ of the-Admin istration it is entitled to respect : I ?v- On Sunday last Collector Rumlev.-at Wilmington: N. C, telegraphed to Secreta ry-BoutwelMhat .theutanrprivaleer, :an swering the description 6t the Hornet, had ttniveu iu umicu oiaies waters, ana ai&ea for instructions. The Secretarv promptlv re plied that 8he"must be detained, and to fol- low wnatever course was necessary for her detention. . " 4 I ... Section eleven of the act of Coneress ap proved Apnl 20, 1818, entitled an act for the punishment of certain crimes against the XT 1 1 n . . . uniiea Dtates, provides : are hereby respectively authorized and required to detain anv vessel manifest.lv built far war like purposes, and about to deoart ) the United States, of whieh the cargo shall principally con sist of amu and , munitions of war, i when the number of men shipped on board, or other cir cumstances, ' shall render it possible : that such vessel is intended to be employed by the owners to cruise and commit hostilities upon the sub jects, citizens or property of any foreign prince pr owe, or 01 any coiony, QiBirici or ipeopie with whom the United States are at peace, until the decision of the President be had thereon, or .until the owner or owners shall give such bond and security as is required of the owners of armed ships by the preceding section of this act.": fV. --.A-- : iVir' : As will be seen,' collectors! are not only authorized but required to detain supicious yessels. The Hornet haviDg been seized on, the 14th ot August last at 1 the Delaware breakwater, by the ? commander of the.feve nue cuter Miami, -nd haviDg been released by the collector of the port of Philadelphia, as there was not enough evidence to detain her,' Collector ' Rumley was' in doubt what course he should pursue, and hence his rea sons for asking for instructions. : The Hornet is therefore now held by au thority of law as well as by positive orders of Secretary Boutwell. What disposition will be made of the caise. the evidence be fore the United States commissioner caln alone determine 4 i , It is hot generally known that the Govern ment had already dispatched several vessels to overhaul the privateer. ! r To the manifestations of Count Montalem bert, Father Hyacihthe, Professor Dollinger, the Munich faculty, and some f of the .Aus trian laity against the contemplated doc trines of the Bomah Council must be added the deprecatory letter of the Bohemian Bishops. They distictly declare their judg ment that Borne should not define the infal libility of the Pope, a doctrine which can only give rise to ridicule among unbeliev ers. They moreover deem it unnecessary to make any further authorative statements j as to the corporeal assumptions of the Virgin Mother, and what is still more extraordi nary, advise the Church to show itself " the J " - - -" friend and protectress ot all itnose sciences which perfect mankind, resting assured that ignorant, and repulsive u ur.illtl A.., , a thorougli and earnest pursuit of science is an adyantage to faith." The belief of New ton and the words of Bacon occur to us here : A little knowledge takes us from religion ; much knowledge brings us back to it." If ihe Church can reason in this iaitb, there is less danger of its failure than some of us may apprehend. Another stimulus to right action on the part of the Council is the an nouncement that four Bishops of France have engaged to defend at Rome the action pf Father Hyacinthe . j ; i 1 The ) manner in which an honest lawyer is obliged to make a living " out West" was amusingly demonstrated a few days ago. ih the Circuit Court of Des Moines) Iowa. j The court being in ! session a tall, lank specimen of the pioneer class arose to his tallest attitude, and addressed the court as follows : " If the Court please, I have a few cases of not much importance which def mand my attention, and, as I am engaged m the honorable occupation ot cutting cord wood at a distance from the city, I would reqnest the Court to suggest a time when I may expect the causes of my clients to be brought up lor trial." Vould that some of our "lyers" and concealers ot law" had the manhood to earn an honest living by the) cutting of "cord wood" or any other congenial trade so. that the public might be assured that these said " lyers" were not inciting assassi nation or hounding on crazy boys to com mit cowardly assaults. The Charleston Courier thinks the elec tions of this month and next, decide the next Presidential election. 1 The absurdity of this is manifest, when we reflect that in Il862 the State ot New York elected Sey- 1 1866 the State of New York elected Fen- I on. lieoubiican. uovernor. and in 1868 ave a Democratic majority for President. In these cases' both Governors and Con gressmen were elected, while in the elections now to come, only smaller local officers are I to be chosen except in Ohio and I tania.

The New York Sorosis held its first m eet- ing after the summer vacation on Monday i last. It is said that; the fair sisters of the Sorosis aje.on thevery verge of rebellion, owing to the efforts of a p&rt of their num ber to have the society commit itself to the movement for a u Woman's Parliament" i in Washington this winter. "Quite a sharp dis cussion took place oh the subject at the meeting on Monday last, and, from all ac counts, the society itself is in danger of dis ruption. A New York paper, : deprecating this state of affairs, says : We expect much comfort and good-fellowship from the lovely sisters during the cominaj winter, with many a social enter tainment alike honorable and profitable to all participants, and therefore deprecate this symptom of disagreement that appears to threaten a society whose record and whose members are so fair, whose purposes are so admirable, and whose existence is of so much importance to the world aj large and mankind in . particular. It is far from clear weather in the little principality of Brigham Young. That chieftain is called upon to face a serious de- iecuon among tne iaiturui. The insurrec tion against him is led by young Joseph Smith, son of the prophet who founded the Mormon sect. Joseph has several advan tages upon his side. He claims that he is hekd prophet by right of descent, and de nounces Brigham as an usurper. He is but iiuuij'buicc veals utu, uuu iuuts.iuii auu weil educated, while Brigham is sixty-five, in appearance. More than this, Smith has always inveighed against polygamy, and can clearly show that it, is heresy never countenanced by his father. This is a strong point, as it arrays on his side all the Gentiles, and all the women, who of course are not content with being only the tenth or twentieth part of a wife. The Pacific railroad- will promote ciyilized ideas, and strengthen the new as pirant. - 'We anticipate to chronicle Brig ham's deposition before long, j The unblushing wickedness of the at tempt toconnect the President of the United States with the recent disgraceful transac tions in Wall street is meeting with merited rebuke and denunciation by the independ- ent press an over tne country, 'mere are none so blindas they who will not see, and it is only the most partisan papers that place the least confidence in the story told by Fisk of Mr. Corbin's connection with the business.
