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.
Mr. Gladstone's intention, it would seem, is
to give Canada her independence, leaving
her. perfectly at liberty to. choose her own
favor the project of appointing ( Prince "Ar

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 built far war

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

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

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-
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 elections have but small
j riificance in Relation to National politics.

! 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
