ST. lAWRKNCIE,  i Anticipating that an attempt may. possibly  be made'-by the Canadian authorities in the  coming season to������������������repeattheir unneighborly.  act toward our'fishermen, I recommcud you  to confer upon the Executive the power to  suspend,-'by proclamation, the operation of  the laws authorising the transit of goods.  wares and merehandtse, in bo nd,' across the  territory of.the United States to Canada - and  further, should simh an extreme measure be  necessary, to suspend tbe operation of.{ any  laws whereby the vessels of the Dominion of  Canada are permitted to enter tbe waters of  the United States.  : Alike unfriendly disposition has been manifested on the part of Canad it in the mainten-  auti*3 of a cluim of the right? to exclude the  citizens of the -.United.States from the navigar  tion of,the St..Lawrence.   This river consti:  tutea a natural outlet to the ocean for eight  bHates, with an aggregate population of 17;-  600,000 inhabitants, and with an aggregate  tonnage of  661,367 tons upon the  waters  which discharge into it.   The foreign commerce of their porta on these waters is open  -to D.ritiah competition, and the major part of  ifc: ia a1 one in British bottoms. ;'-;'��������� ���������*','���������';  -If; American seamen be excluded from the  natural avenue to the oceanj the monopoly of  the dfrect commerce of the" Lake ports with  ���������thei Atlantic would be in foreign'hands? their  vessels on t*rahsatlantic voyages having an  access to our lJ������ke ports, which'��������� wouldvbe-denied to Am ericon vessels on similar voyages.  To state aue*h a proposition is to refutev its  justice.v During Kbo:administration of John  Qnincy Adamsi; Sir Clay unquestionably* demonstrated the natural right of the citizens of  the United States to the iriavigatlori -of this  riverd claimingithe act of the Congress of Vienna; upon the KhiBe an<$ 6ther,river3, and all  natiops to; have the :judgnien t of Eiirop������an  jurists and statesmen, that tbe inhabitanta, of;  a country through ^whSefr^nHv^^l^nvec,  passes have a natural tfigfifc to enjoy the navi-  gatiou of that river to and into the sea, even  though passiag: through the ^territory of an:  other power.��������� Aif"'''''AA-::]-:'",";*���������"'';. .''������������������..':., ;>���������  This right)does not.vexe'liide ��������� the coequal  right;6f the sovereign Of passihg the territory  through .which,the river, "debbuobes into the  sea, t^; make siicli/Teguia&onav^intiYo'to tbe  policy of the navigation j as ina^y be reasonably necessary, but th6se regulatioris should  be framed'in'a liberal spirit of comity, and  "should impose no needless burdens upoa.the.  commerce which; has the right of transit. It  has been found in practice more advantage-;  ous to arrange vlhose regulations %-y inatu al  agreement. The United States are ready* to  make any reasonable arrangement as to, the  practice*of the St. Lawrence, which may be  suggested? by Great Britain. If the claim  made by Mr Clay was just when the popula-  * tion o f the States bordering- on the shores of  the*lakes was only 3,400 000. It now, derives  greater notice and equity from the an.creased-  population,, v/ealth, production and tonnage  <)':th e States o u th e Canadian fro ri tier. .  domain, in wliicb tbe Mississippi took its rise,  she insisted on this right to navigate the en-  ti v e vol n ra e o f i ts water. O "the grou nd tb at  she .possesses'both "banks of the St. Lawrence  where it disembogues itself into the sea, she  denies the United States the right of navigation through about one-half of the waters of  Lakes Ontario, Huron and Superior, and the  whole of Lake Michigan, through which the  river flows, though they are the property of  the :U i ii tedStates.  The whole nation is interested in securing  cheap transportation from the agricultural  States of the West to the Atlantic seaboard.  To the citizens of the States it secures a  greater return for the produce of the lauds  tilled by them.  Since Mr. Clay advanced his argument in  b ehaI f o f ou r righ t, the p rin cipie for whith  he contended has been frequently and by  various nations recognized by law or by treaty, and has been extended. to sever?.! other  great rivers. By the treaty concluded at  May-ence in 1832, the Rhine was declared  free, from t-be point where it is first navigable, into the sea; by the-convention between  Spain and Portugal, concluded in 1885, the  the navigation of-tho &iiro, throughout Us  whole extent, wrs mads free for the subjects  of both crowns; in 1853. the Argentine Con-  federation, bs tre^y, threw open ilia free  navigation of the Parano and the Uraguay to;  the merchant-vessels of all nations; in 1856.  the yiernean was. closed by a treaty, which  provided for the free navigation of the Danube; in 1858, Bolivia, by treaty, declared it  regarded the rivers Amazon and Laplatta* in  accordance with fixed principles of-international law, as higbgways or channels opened,  by Nature for the commerce of all nations;  la 1859, the Paraguay was made free by treaty, and in December, 1866' the Eknperbr of  Brazil, by imperial decree, declared the, Amazon to be open, to all the frontier of Brazil'f  to the merchant ships of airDations;   ji  ;Tlae^greatestliving -British^ ��������� autbonties oik:  this subject^ while asserting the arbitrary^  right of the British 'claim'; says itc seems ^iMi  cult to deny that Great - Bri tain iriay groimcl  her refusal upon ajirict law; but it is equally  :diffic'nlfc to deny, first,-that in so dpiog she oker-  cises harshly;-an extreme and hard law ;��������� secondly, lhatjber conduct with respect to th������  navigation of the St; Lawrence is in -glaring:  and discreditable incohaistehey with hsr conduct with respect to the navigation of the  MississippL:';;.���������;���������        A;A    -J-'-:-]i r-iA ���������';."'���������''A- A;- ���������;.. -'.  /It is hoped the Government of Great Britai a  will see the justice of abandoning the narrow  and ineonsistent claim to whic^ her Canadian:  provinces hivaurged her adherence;i- \ ���������  BUSINESS1 NOTICE.  fain is supposed to he the lot of ns poor mortals;  as inevitable as.-'death itstjlf and Hahle at any time to  come upon us.

But fttTasij.one night, I let it run  down.   I grieved about it as if it were a recognised meaaenger and forerunaer of cal am-  ���������2ty.   But by, and by I cheered up, and set the  watch by guess, and commanded my bodirigB  i\nd  superstitions to depart.    Next day I  elepped into the chief jeweler's to set it by  ��������� t������e exact time, and,the head of the eetablish-  fineni took it out of my hand and.proceeded  to set it for me. . Then he said," She is four  , raiiiutea sipw���������regulator wants pushing up.?  I tried to etop him-4tried to make him under*  )eland that the watch kept perfeefc time.   But  ���������f, ii o j. iftU this hum an . cabb age could see was  that the: watch was four minlites too slow,  and the regulator must be pushed up a little ������  mi so, wfcile I danced around him in anguish  and beseecbed him to let the >watch alone, he  calmly; and cruelly'did the" snameful ... deed.M  Jfy watch began to gainv- It gained faster  Vanflfasterda^;bj;day. ^Within: the week it  J^mckeried -: to imaging<=feyer, and its pulse  went upi :to a^hundred; and fifty in the shade;  At the end of two months it had le(;t all the  timepiece������ of tbe V town far in the rear, and  was ^a^ractipn^ oyer'thirteen day8ahead/)f the  almanack   It was away into Noyember, en-  vjoying^the; sho>wi while: the I. October leaves  weret still turning;- It 'hurried up house-rent,  bills payable, and such thin^1R such ft ru~  inous way that I could not abide; it.   I took  it to ;the;; watcljmakerr;vto.be regulated;   He  asked me if I had 'ever had it repaired.   I  ������aid no, it had never: needed-any repairing.���������  He looked a look of yiciou������ hap^ineas* and  pried the watchi'opeiij-. theni:-put a small dice-;  'box.into bis eye and peered into its machinery;^ He -said1 it wanted cleaning and oiling,;  besides regulating���������come in* a^eek.; After  "being cleansed and oiled and regit!ated; my  watch slowed down to tliat degree that it  tcked like a tolling bell.   I began to be lei I  by twins ; Hailed all appointments f I got to  missing, my dinner ;  my watch strung out  three fays* grace to four, and let me go to  protest ;vI gradually' drifted back into yester-;  day, tbea day before, then into last week, and  by and by the comprehension cairn e upon me  ti at all solitary and; alone.I was lingering  along in week before last, and that the world  was out of sight.   I seemed to detect in rny*  self a sort of sneaking feeling for the mummy  in the museum, and a desire to swap new*  with him.   I went to a watchmaker, again.���������  Ha took the watch all to pieces whileTwaSeS'  .... and then eaid the barrel was "swelled."   He  said he could reduce it in three days.   After  "this, the watch "averaged" well, but nothing  more.   For half a day it would go like the  very mischief, and keep up" such a barking  and'wheezing and whooping and sneezing-  and snorting, that I could-not hear myself  t i:nk for the disturbance ;  and as long as it  bold out, there was not a watch iu tho land,  that stood any chance against it.   But the  rest of the day it would keep on slowing  down and fooling along until all the clocks  it had left behind caught up again.   So, at  last, at the end of twenty-four hours, it would  trot up to the judges, all right and just in  time.   It would show a fair and square average, and no man could say that it did more  or less tbaa its duty.   But a correct average  Is only a mild virtue in a watch, and I took  the instrument to another watch maker.   He  said the kingbolt was broken.   I said I was  glad it was nothing more serious.   To tell the  p ain truth, I had no idea what the kingbolt  was, but I did not chooso to appear ignorant  to a stranger.   Ho repaired the kingbolt, but  what the watch gained in one way it lost in  another.   It would run awhile and then slop  awhile, and then run awhile again, aud so on,  using its own discretipn about intervals.-���������  And every time it went off it kicked back like  a musket.   I padded  my  breast for a few  days, but finally took tbe watch to another  watchmaker.   He nicked it all ,io pieces and  turned the ruin over and over under his glass,  and then-hei said-'there appeared to be something the- matter wifcthehair-trigger. He  fixed it and gaye it a-freshi start. It did well  now,Except that always at ten minutes to ten  the hands would shut together like a pair;of  scissors; and from that time forth they would  travel together. The diciest man in the world  could hot make head or .tail; of; the time of  day by such a watch, and so I went again to  have the thing repaired. This persoi said  the crystal had got bent, and that the mainspring was not straight. He also remarked  that a portion* of the works needed half-soling.  He made ithese things all right, and then my  time-piece performed unexceptionably, save  that now and thea, after working along  quietly for nearly eight hours, everything inside would let go all of a sudden and;begin  to buzslike a bee, and the hands straightway  begin to spin round and round so fast that  their individuality was lost completely, and  they simply seemed a delicate spider/s web  over the face of the watch. She would reel  off the next twenty������fonr hours in six or Beven  minutes, and stop with a bang. I went with  a heavy:! heart to one more watchmaker, and  looked on while be took her to pieces. Then  I prepared to cross-question him rigidly, for  this^ thing; was getting eeripus.; The watch  had costtwo hundred 'dollars., originally, and  I seemed' to have paid out two or three thou-  sa nd for rep airs. ��������� Whi le I w ai ted and -1 coked  on, I presently recognised in this Watchmaker  an: old acquaih tan ce���������a steambpat engin ee r  of.6thor days,-and not a good ehgineei*:eifcher.
