(From   Ihe  Pall Mall  Gazette.)
We form the centre of four great
nations—as tliey soon will be—British
North America, South Africa, Australia
and New Zealand, which deriro from us
theirJanguage, their luws, their literature,
their religion—io a word, all that is distinctive in tlieir existence ; and besides
thin, we rule over a vast empire in India,
which appears likely in the course of no
very long time to present a state of things
almost unexampled in the modern history
of tho world. If any one considers the
relat:on of the United States to this
system, he will perceive at once that it is
so much connected with it. and resemhlns
it so closely as almost to form a part of
it. It is indeed distinguished from the
British Empire only by tbe fact that it
has already that complete independence
which our colonies will most assuredly
possess when they are a little better sble
to stand on their own legs, and which it
ought to bo our highest hope to be able
to confer with safety upon British India.
In the meantime, onr relations witli the
United States are actually closer than
our relations with any of lbe colonies.
Onr trade witli them is greater) they
take o large number of our emigrants,
and they ore tlie only civilized Bower in
tne world which is 6c|mrated from our
possessions by a mere geographical boun
dary. Add to all this tlie fuct that the
principles on whii h ihey are governed are
nothing but the principles of our own
'Goverjimeut applied on a larger scale aud
to a somewhat different str.te of society,
aud it becomes sell-evident that they are
capable of doing us more harm or good
than all the other nations of the earth put
together. If we cultivate those relations
with tbem which, hut for-the madness of
George III., need never havo been disturbed at all, there is no reason why a
century hence the English race, with
local modifications, should not be the
predominant ruce of the world beyond all
dispute or comparison. It would indeed
in tha.. event constitute a new community
of civilized States, much more extensive
than Europe, at least as fertile in all
natural advantages, and possessed of
ma«y other advantages peculiar to itself.
For instance, there are hardly any substantial grounds on which any of the
Englands of the future, including the
United States as one of the number,
would havo occasion to quarrel. Human
perversity conld hardly go to snob a
length'«S to produce war between Australia nnd South Africa, or between
Canada and New Zealand.
Maungebinq. — A private soldier
baving determined to escape from the
service, made up his mind to sham deafness. He went to work systematically ;
first failed to hear those wbo spoke in a
low tone of voice, and soon after became,
to all outward appearance, stone deaf
The surgeons suspected, but could not
prove that he was shamming ; they tried
every expedient to test the man, bnt none
succeeded in doing more than showing
that he was very deaf. So well had the
delinquent trained himself, that even when
a pistol wns snapped off in his room, when
ho was asleep, he did not seem alarmed or
disturbed. At length ho was brought before a medical board for Discharge ; but
the doctor who suspected him to be
shamming asked to be allowed to apply
ono more test, which was granted. The
man was, as he thought, fairly examined,
was admitted to be deaf, aud was given
his discharge paper. Although he could
not read, yet he know tbe value of the
paper be held, for all his schemes had
succeeded, und his discharge was insured.
He left tho board-room, conscious merit
beaming on bis face, and walked along
the hospital corridors. As he joyfully
strode off, a door was genlly opened, and
a voice in a whisper inquired : ' Is it all
right, Bob? 'All right,' said the deaf
man. ' Have you got your discharge,
Bob V whispered the same voice. ' Here
St is, my boy,' said Bob, as he approachea
the door, expecting there to meet a confederate. ' Let me look at your discharge,' Baid a sergeant, as he opened the
door, ' On, I see it is blank, not filled
up, and not signed. You are my prisoner,
on a charge of feigning deafness.' Bob
was at once as denf again as a post, but
it was too late.—Chambers Journal.
Mr. Charles Kean, recovered from his
temporary indisposition, has wisely ap
peared in 'Lou;s XI.,' his most effective
impersonation. The play is a somewhat
trashy historical melodrama, containing
one good character, which the author,
Casimir Delavigne, devised for the Freuch
actor Ligier, aud which Mr. Boucicault
cleverly adapted for Mr. Kean. 'Ihe
performance is as striking and amusing
as Mr. l'help's 'Sir Pertinnx Macsyco-
pbant,' ond it has, in a large degree, tho
same quality—earnestness.

THE  ONE THING   WANTED.
HOLLOWAY'S HLLSv
The mood.
These famous pills are so compered tha
they operate wholesomely on tbe stomach, the
liver, the bowels, and other organs; by correct'
ing any derangements in tbeir functions
whereby a steady supply of pure materials tor'
the renewal of the Iilood is furnished, and a
constant abstraction of effete products is ef'
fected. This perfect circulation thus becomes
the very fountain of health and life, and over'
comes all form of disease wherever its situa*
tion.
General bfaorders of (lie Liver
and Stomach.
All who ever indulge a* table, either In eat*
ng or drinking, should take about ten of thes-
I.uti,iii9 pills at bed time, from which will re*
suit a clear head and good stomach the following morning. Thousands of Ladies are always complaining of sick headiVcbes, want o
appetite, wantof energy, and want of strength,
to coircct all these evils, three or four ot then
I'ills should be taken twice a week, when tbey
would give the Invalid ihe health anil appeliN
of a ploughman.
Females of all Ages and Cla«s«»
Obstructions of any kind, either in young
or those between forty and fifty—the most critical peiiod of life—may be radically remo; -A
by using these Pills according to the printed
directions which accompany each box. Young
persous wilh sickly and sallow complezioni
may have the bloom of health restored by tbi?
corrective, which purifies the blood and e*»
pels all gross nnd impure humors from thesys*
tem. Beware then of the criticnl age Iron
forty to fifty, as it sends many thousands to
premature grave,—these Pills should be take»
it that period of lile two or three times *
teek
Oiiiit   of Strength and Energy*
Persons of sedentary habits, or those tron-
bled in mind, working in Factories or Coal
Pits, who cannot obtain that amount of fresi
air and exercise which nature requires, suffer
from weakness and delility, lown-ess of spirl;*
and want of appetite. All such should take*
dose or two of these Pills every three or fouv
days, as they act gently and effectually on the
system and impart vigor and energy to thei
body, which is always followed by a good
appetite, sound and refreshing sleep, and it
high flow of spirits.,
For the into of Dropayt
The effiency of Holloway's Pills in Dropsy
is extraordinary. They act with such s peon*
liar effect upon the system, tbat the fluid/
causing this direful complaint, are peraeptibl •
carried off and prevented from any further
accumulation. The sufferer regains a baoy»
ancy of spirits and rejoices in a completely
renovated constitution. It is indispensably
necessary thnt the Ointment should be mo»l
effectually rubbed into the complaining part*
during the whole course of treatment.
Children and their Allmentr.
In no country in the world are more children
carried to an early gravo than in Great Britaiu.
Coughs, Measles, Scarlatina, Fevers, and other
diseases attack tbe little lufferers, apd death,
but too often, follows at a rapid pace; yet if

Preabyterlaa Church Trouble*.
A meeting of adherents of thc First Presbyterian Church and others interested in the
cause took place last night, to hear Rev. Mr,
Soraerville's reason for resigning tho pastoral
charge of that congtegatiou. Mr. P.M, Lang
acted as chairmin. Mr. Somerville, after a
few introductory remarks, read the letter of
resignation he had seat to the church authorities, which he thought was a suilicie-it explanation of tbe step he had taken. He said
he felt ho was useless to a large portion of the
congregation, and felt himself a burden to
many, although, thank God ! ho was not depended fur his living on this town or on any
church iu it. Feeling himself, however, a
burden to some in the conirrogation, he had
thrown up the call, and his connection with
the First Presbyterian Church reused entirely
from the moment of his resignation.
Dr. Trimble (one of the many gent'emen
wbo contributed towards the erection of Unchurch on the understanding that it was to be
for Presbyterians of all classes) asked what
was tho cause of the difficulty between Mr.
Somervillc and his congregation.
Mr. .Somervillc said he had already explained in his letter the cause.
Dr. Trimble said there was an explanation
wanting which tht letter did not lill up,
Mr. somervillc said there were several minor
difficulties, but tlic chief was that tlie Trust
Deeds of the church pr iperty were in tlie hands
of thro.! men, two of whom were now out of
tho colony, and that tlie deeds had been executed since he (Mr. S.) came to the colony,
* without his cognizance and assent. Many
Presbyterians were aggrieved at this state of
things and wonld not come to the church ; he
■sympathised with these people, and hence his
present action. Ho solemnly detiicd thut he
had ever, iu public or in private, frjm the
pulpit or iu any private house, proposed to
connect the church with the Church of Scot-
laud. Tbe rev.-gentleman then entered into
a panegyric on the Church of .Scotland, 'in
-whose bosom would ever be found tho truest
basis of union," and said that that church
would pay his salary nnd build him a church
(applause), but he must lirst have a congregation. Tho rev. gentleman told nn anecdote
of a man who left the Church of Scotland
aud went to number for a year, but then risked
to be taken back, as " although it was the
iiest road, there were too many tolls on it"—
and concluded hy assuring his hearers that
the church of Scotland wonld back bim up,
and if poverty camo upon the new congregation the church would see that there would bo
uo " freezing ont" permitted.
Resolutions were then passed regretting
thc circumstances that had caused Mr. .-.omer-
ville's resignation, and hoping that ho would
continue his ministry in tlie colony ; also,
" that a church under the auspices nud in
connection with tbo Church of Scotland is
best calculated to furrher the cause of I'res-
byteriauism here, and that this meeting resolves to support Mr. Somerville in bi.-r efforts
to origiuato and establish such a church In
this city." A committee consisting ol Messrs.
Monro, Powell, Wallace, Jas. ISurus, and J.
It. Stewart, wilh Mr. Lang as chairman, was
appointed, and Mr. I.ang stated that Mr.
Somerville would announce the result of thc
labors of the committee on Sunday Irom the
pulpit of the First. Presbyterian Church.
The meeting was then dismissed.

An African Lake—ilr. Baker thus
describes a canoe voyuge on tho Albert
Nyiinzii, one of the sources of the Nile :
" Our lirst, day's voyage was delightful.
The lake was calm, the sky cloudy, and
the scenery most lovely. At times the
mountains on the west coast were not discernible, and the I ike appeared of iude-
Quito width. Wo coasted within 100
yards of the east shore ; sometimes we
passed flats of sand and bush of perhaps
a mile iu width from the water to the
base of the mountain cliffs; at other
times we passed directly underneath stupendous heights of ubout 1500 feet, which
ascended abruptly from the deep, so that
we fended the canoes off the sides and as
sisted our progress by pushing ng.iinst
the rock with huliihoos. These precipitous rocks were nil primitive, frequently of
granite und gneiss, and mixed in many
places wiih red porphyry. In the clefts
were beautiful evergreens of every tint,
Including giant euphorbias, and wherevjr
a rivulet or spring glittered through ihe
dark foliage of a ravine, it was shaded
by the graceful and leathery wild date.
Great numbers of hippopotami were sport
ing in the water. Crocodiles were exceedingly numerous, both in and out of
the water ; wherever a sandy beach in«
vilod them to bask, several monsters were
to be seon, iike trunks of trees, lying iti
the 6nn. There were neither ducks nor
geese, as there were no feeding grounds,
deep water was close to the shoro.''
A New and QlAND Kpocii in Medicine!—
Dr. Maggiel is Ibi fotindu of a new Medical
system. The rpiiiilitarians, whose vait internal doses entecble the stomach and paralyze
the bowels, must give precedence to the mnn
who restores health and appetite, with from
one to two of his extraordinary Pills, and
cures the most virulent sores wiili a box or so
ol bis wondertul nud all healing Salve. These
two great specifics of the Doctors nre fast superseding all the stereotyped nostrums of the
day. Extraordinary cures by Kagglel'l i'ills
and Salve have opened tlie eyes of the public
to the inefficiency of the (so called) remedies
of ol hers, and upon which people have so long
blindly depended, llaeglel'l I'ills are no ol
the claps tbat are swallowed by the dozen, and
of which every box lull taken creates nn absolute necessity for another. One or two if
Maggiels Pills suffices to place the bowels in
perfect order, tone the stomach, create au appetite, and render the spirits light and buoyant 1 There is no griping, and no reaction in
the form of constipation. If tho liver is affected, it! functions aro restored; audit the
nervous system is feeble, it is invigorated.
This last quality makes the medicines very
desirable for the wants of delicate females.*
Ulcerous and eruptive diseases are literally
extinguished by tf.e disinfeclnnt power of
Maggiel's Salve.   In fact, it is liero announced
that Massrlel's Ul lous, Dynpeptlc
and Diarrlicil I'lilS cure where all
others tail. While for Burns, Scalds, Chil
Mains, Cuts and all abrasions of the skin
Mallei's Salve is infallible. Sold by

TIIE AWKXiTlOX qUESTIO.V.
In our yostenluy'j issue we pave a
Flight eyiiopsis ot the political portion of
the report of the UnitedSteteiTreuorer,
in answer to a resolution of the House of
BepreeeoUtirei. We showed tlmt the
heheine to provide for the annexation of
the North American colonies n-ully emanated from the United States Executive,
und that it wan based ou a thorough
kuowled re of the resources, trade, revenue,
expenditure and liabilities of the various
colonies. The burden which the United
States agrees to assunio under tho scheme
of union with tho five Eastern provinces
is greater by nearly two million dollars
than the entire revenue of these provinces.
This liability is put down as follows :
Interest at 5 percent, on the consolidated
provincial debt, with obligation to dis-
ehorso the principal in the year 1900,
$4,285,000 ; annual grants to new
Slates in lieu of provincial power to levy
import and export duties, $I,G4C,000 ;
five percent, on sums applied to railway
construction between liingor in Maine
and St. John's in New Brunswick, und
for purchase uf tlie chartered rights of
Hudson's Hay Company, $000,000; five
per cent, on cost of the St. Lawrence
system of ship cauals, $2,500,000—which
would give a toial annual liability of
$9,031,000. Coupled with this is the
guarantee of $5,500,000 per annum in aid
of tho construction of the railway across
tho continent,—making altogether a total
annual charge on the Government of the
United States of $15,081,000. The public
revenues of ihe Eastern provinces in
1864 only amounted to $13,200,000. The
following programme shows how tlio Republic intends to indemnify itself for those
obligations. " l'ne public domain of the
eastern provinces, to be transferred to the
United States, would bo 214,282,817
acres. British America, west, within iu
habitable nroas, contains 320,000,000—a
total of 534,282,817 acres ; and yet it
hesitated to claim this vast dominion of
land us a source of revenue. The programme of union lias already appropriated
47,360,000 acres to aid the construction
of n continental railroad ; the care of
100,000 Indians will be another charge
upon tho fund from land sales ; 50,000,-
0C0 acres In the western territories will
be required for the endowment of schools ;
further grants for internal improvements
will be made ; live per cent, of sales of
land is also applied for the latter object;
und although mineral lands, may reason*
ably be expected lo yield an income to
government, still tlie homestead policy,
from which there must be no backward
step, must concur, with oilier causes, to
reduce the proceeds of Iho public lands
to the expensis of their survey, adininis
tration, and sale. If, by railway construction, cheap water transit, and sys- j
tcinntic colonization, the population of
the northern provinces (hereinaficrStules)
shall reach 10,000,000 In 1875, the gov.
eminent would possess a sure means of indemnity for the proposed enlargement of
its obligations. The nverngo revenue per
head of popnlntloo now collected in the
provinces is $3,45, which, applied to ten
millions of people, would bo nearly
$35,000,000. Making every allowance
for the duo proportion of this sum applicable to tho support of tbe national
government, there would yet remain on
ample provision for current interest and
ultimale discharge of principal."
Such is in brief tho schema for the annexation of the Eastern provinces. That
which more immediately concerns ourselves is the programme for the annexation
of the British territory west of the Rocky
Mountains—British Columbia and Vancouver Island. These colonies are offered,
independent nf any annexation of the
Eastern provinces, the immediate construction of a 1'uciGc railway from Minnesota through British Columbia to the
coast; besides a territorial Government
snch as that which exists in Montana.
As few of our reaJers probably are aware
of ihe character of the Government that
is thus offered them, we will endeavor in
as few words as possible to give them the
snbstanco of tho organic act by which
Montana exist3 and is governed. First,
then, there is a Governor who gets not
$15,000 a year with another $3000 for
residence, making in all $20,000 a year
like the Governor of Vancouver Island,
bnt twenty five hundred dollars e, year ;
then we have a Secretary, not at $.'1000
like our Colonial Secretary, bnt at $2000
a  year ; then  a  Chief  Justice,  not at
$6000 but at $2500;  and two associate
justices ut $25)0 each. Besides Utile
offl 'fall there is an attorney who is paid
by fees witb the addition of a small salary, a marshal who executes ull procosses
issuing from the courts, paid in Iho same
way, and a Surveyor General. Then there
are the members of Legislators paid at
the rato of four dollars (the Speaker receive! |8) a day, for 10 days—the limit of
the session, with the following officers for
iscfa House :—chief clerk, assistant clerk,
engrossing clerk, eniolling clcik, sergeant-
at-nruiN, nnd doorkeeper. Tho whole
of the appointments here enumerated
ure paid, not by the people of the
territory, but by tlio United Stutes Government; leaving nothing for tho inhabitants to provide for but local improvements and the security of life and property.
The Government consists of a Governor,
Legislative Council, and Houso of Representatives. The Council consists of
sevcu members, the House of Representatives of thirteen—tho former may, however, bo increased tc thirteen and tho
latter to twenty-sis. Tho Council is
elected for two years, the House for one
year. Besides this local representation,
the territory sends a delegate lo Congress,
nho is elected for two years. Tbe Governor, Secretary, Chief Justice, anl Associate Justices, Attorney General, Sur»
veyor General, and Marshal nre all
appointed in the usual manner, by the
President by and with tho advice of the
United States Senate, and hold office for
four y?ai'3. All oilier officers in the
territory, unless elected according to local
statute, aro appointed by the Governor
with the advice and consent of ihe Legislative Council. Tho Governor has the
usual veto power, but a two-thirds majority in both Houses overrides it, and
any bill which passes both Houses, unless
it is returned by the Governor within
three days after it is presented lo him,
becomes law. Such is tho system of
government which exists in Montana, a
territory whose population is estimated
the present year at forty or fifty thousand.
All the officials we have enumerated,
besides the paid members of the Legislature, only cost $17,600. Deducting
the latter expenses, iu order that we may
compare more correctly the cost of that
Government with the Governments of
these two colonies, and we have $13,200;
for similar officials in Vancouver Island
and British Columbia the people aro required to pay no less a sum than $8S,500,
or almost seven times tlio amount es-
ponded for tho sumo work iu Montana,
although the white population of these
colonies is, we believe, at the present
moment not more than one fifth of that
of tho territory mentioned. Comment is
surely needless.
