On the principle that; no news is good nsws,  the public may well gather a very favorable  Impression with .regard* to1 the dependencies  of the British Crown.   Not many>years since  Colonial troubles and discontents formed a  constant difficulty-with Ministers at home, and  gave rise to debates in every session... The  Colonial Secretary was one of the most; important personages in the Cabinet, for ifc waa  his duty to govern, or lecture, or worry forty  dependencies, great and small, which, on their  part, were always begging some fay or or declaiming against some grievance.   Colonial  deputations ia London and Colonial indignation meetings across the ocean were the order of the day, and-'it is difficult to say which  .were5 the moBt formidable to the British taxpayer.   Whatever opinion, sentiment or passion tbe colonist displayed; whether love to  us or loyalty to our - Queen, or' etern local  patriotism, the result was al ways tbe same���������  an addition to the home budget; 'We freely  confess that this was not the fault of the colonies, but of those statesmen of tradition at  home who clung to the. old organization 'of  tbe British Empire, and insisted on keeping  large and increasing English communities in  official leading strings,   The colonies were lo  be practically governed from home, their  laws were to be made for tbem, tbeir lands  distributed for them, tbeir feuds and friendships with the natives directed^for tbem, and  their battlesfought; for them by the gentlemen of the Colonial Office.   It is needless to  recapitulate how all this has been'changed���������  how the grant of self government to the^col-  onies has-been followed by the strongest Inculcation of self-help, and how these coramu-  'nitiea have become, under such influences,  more sufficing to themselves and more useful  to the mother country.   The last and moat  conspicuous instance'haa been that of New  Zealand.   Only middle-aged men remember  the^Caffre wars that spoiled more than one  New Zealand to fight a; handful of Maorics ja  d thing of yes'tlrday.   So slow is tbe progress  of sound administration  principles  that it  needed all the courage of the most powerful  of Liberal Ministries to decide on telling the  colonists, that they must manage their own  natives, and great was the outcry with which  this barbarous abandonment of our offspring  was greeted*.   However, the act was accomplished, and, by the testimony of-those who  most opposed it, has been thoroughly successful.   It swept away the iast vestige of the  old colonial system^   At precisely the same  time the Canadian Dominion was established,  and the. Australian colonies came to, the conclusion that they not only needed no garrisons of British Regulars in time or. peace, but  felt themselves strong enough to nndertake  in great part their own defence in case of an  Imperial :wj^t^Un.der,;the^.hew"-system the  colonies are acquiring a more robust political  health, and tbeir material *pfosperiiy advancss  so rapidly and evenly ��������� thai^their history - is  almost barren of events.  Yet there are some who are not wholly  pleased by the change. There is a senti-  mentaVregret that the corinexioir between the  mother country and the colonies is not so  close as;it used to be.: Fears are expressed  that the tie has become so thin and.slack that  itx may soon'cease altogether. It is suggested  that the present relations are such that if the  colonies were to declare th erase) yes indepencU  enfc:tne7di*ft^w  James Martin, Premier of New South, Wales,'  has made himself the exponent of these views.  At an entertainment given to the Marquis of  Normanby, who was on bis way to Queens  land, the Chief of tbe New South Wales Government took up the old topic that the. British  country. Thus Sir. James Martin says tbat  the Australians are offended because, ** for  the sake of a few thousand pounds," the Imperial authorities bad withdrawn the garrisons. He hopes that " this spirit of economy  will disappear," and M by the adoption of a  better policy, we should have sent back to  our shores those troops which would do for  us not what we are unable to do for ourselves,  but which would show that we .were one, and,  he hoped, indivisible." Tbe contemptuous  mention of '* a-few thousand pounds" is quite  in- the approved style, and shows bow.much  the speaker has studied tbe cost of the garrisons.and squadrons which England bas maintained ;in every part of tbe glob$. This tone  becomes even more indefensible under the  circumstances of colonial legislation.: Sir  James.Martin is a Protectionist, and in the  sister colony Protection is'dominant. The  communities with which we are to keep up a  " visible connexion" by costly military establishments display tbeir independence by  treating England in'������; all commercial matters,  as a foreign power,..and- raising, tbe bu 1 k of  their revenue by duties on her productions.-���������'  [Lbn'don Times.������������������'���������'���������  HOTELS, RESTAURANTS. &61  MISCELLANEOUS.

Lord Normanby in his speech  had said that such feelings received no encouragement in high places, and Sir James  Martin is glad to bear it. Sir James, however,  believes that the views promulgated by Mr  Gold win Smith bad been sanctioned to a certain extent by persons high in office, and that  they had done somewhat towards severing  the ties between England and the colonies.  On tbis point it, is, perhaps, impossible to reassure tbe speaker and those who think * with  him. Alt tbat can be done is to say that every  public roan at home connected witb the colonies has repudiated the doctrine, by whomever promulgated, that the colonies should  be declared independent and. the Queen'B  Sovereign ty and pro tection wi thdraw n. Furthermore, it may be confidently asserted, that,  in the opinion of tbe Liberal party at home,  the recent change in system is not only no  abandonment of the colonies, but was deliberately adopted and earned out because ifc  afforded tbe only means of reconciling tbe retention of foreign dependencies with justice  to our borne population.   Sir James Martin  may be reminded tbat some of the most able  of the colonial authorities-have enpouraged  tbe home Government la its new policy precisely because they saw that, if it were not  adopted, tbe instinct of tbe democracy at  home would be for doing what Mr Goldwin  Smith counselled-   The colonies are suckers,  and not feeders, was the old cry of the economists and utilitarians, and the principles of  these teachers are clearly enough the principles on whioh the England of the future is  to be goversed.   We say that what has been  done bas been Conservative in the truest  sense, and gives the colonial system  the  chance of a new life.  -The colonial Conservatives and their friends  Witb reference to general political matters,  lean only say at present tbat if honored by  your suffrages, I shall go to the House of Commons untrammelled ,by party obligations,  save that I shall consider it my duly, and tbe  duty of every member from this Province, to  lend a cheerful support to the Ministry to  whom we. owe our new birth and political  enfranchisement.

We thiiikjn view of.the great  importance, of keeping communication open  during the winter, that the Government should  make an   allowance for keeping, the  road  oner had   not asked for  au   agreement in  broken.    If attended   to   systematically   it  writing, but had merely said. " do we need a  written agreement ?'' to which witness had replied he did not think it was necessary.  A. Vigholo, who was present' wlien the conversation took place, gave similar evidence.  B. N. Maury testified that prisoner had told  him positively that he was going to Yale for  a load for Cunio.  Mr Walkem, counsel for prosecution, read  the evidence of prisoner, vaa given hi the  Coilnfy Court, wherein he denied that he had  made any positive agreement with complainant, or that he told Cunio that he was certain  Davis bad *oJd his train, and stated tbat, he  had asked for ft written agreement, which  Cunio refused to give. A'letter was also produced which had been sent by Cunio to Kimball <& Gladwin, felling them to give the  freight to Caux. and if Davis should have got  another train and demanded a load to try and  procure freight for him. Counsel applied  that prisoner should be committed for trial.  Messrs. Davie tt Park, counsel for prisoner,  asked thkt he should be 'discharged..as ibe  evidence was insufficient to sustain the charge.  The Xfagi%lrate decided that. sufficient evidence had been produced to; warrant the case  being sent before a jury, and he should therefore order prisoner to-be committed for trial  at Ihe next Assizes.   Bail for .his appearance  could be done on reasonable terms, while if  once left to block the cost may bo much  greater hereafter. . Merchandize of every description is now scarce here, while there are  large stocks on the way ; flour is not Jo be  hsd, and if the road is not kept in a passable  condition prices will rule high this winter.  Since July last nothing of any account has  been done on this road, and it. was allowed  to remain in a frightful st Ale before the mow  fell; so we think some Utile reparation is  now due* to the people of tlie district, and  past neglect should be in some measure eon-  doned by the expenditure of a small sum in  th is ni anner during the win ter.

As to the origin of the phrase " Old Nick,"  Archdeacon Nares tells us that "Nick" was  a.very old man  among the Northerns, and  from them we derived the word.   We borrowed it, in fact, from the title: of an evil  genius amongihe Danes.   They believed tbat  be often appeared on the sea and deep rivers  >m the form of a sea-monster, presaging immediate shipwreck and drowning to the unhappy sailors.   Keyster, another antiquarian  authority, mentions a. deity of the waters,  worshipped by the ancient Danes and Germans, under the name of Nicken or Nbcca.  Hence, doubtless, the term "Old Nick'7 arose  by an easy corruption.  In tbe museum at Cassel, Germany, is -a  library made from five hundred European  trees.
