The  Queen has originated the proposition, just, as  ' sb e .did that fqr^th e m arri a ge of h er -, daugh ter  ' Lo n'ise td4he Mn rquis of Lor he. fe-Tn e y On ng  Princess is only fourteen years of age^ and  the Queen's idea isj that upon the re-election  of President Grant and the beginning of the  secqnfd. termjin ;1873f the nuptials}he solemnized.    Young   Mr  Grant  would   then   ibe  adopted as a British subject, and immediately  appointed Viceroy of the Dominion of^Canada.  \ -lilt is-her Majesty's belief that:Mn; |hisj-way  'the feelings of the three countries of America,  Canada, and Great Britain could be harm oh-  ixed as closely as their interests. ;  The letters which communlcate this sur-  pris in g prop osi tip n are wri tte n in p er fee fc  good faith, and by persons of the highest  position in Great Britiiin. One of them asserts that the idea really came from Mr Seward, by whom it was suggested to the Earl of  Mayo, in India, and by the Earl then taken  up and communicated to the Queen, through  one of his lordship's friends. Ltidy Waterpark,  a lady in waiting upon her Majesty.  It is also stated that the matter was intrusted to the London correspondent of a  leading radical journal of New Yrork. who  left London suddenly for New York about a  mouth ago. commissioned to sound the President upon the subject. This correspondent  assured tbe Queen's ministers that the re-election' of; President Grant was absolutely certain, and thus contributed mainly to give  them confidence in, the scheme. The agitation now going on in favor of Mr Greeley  may disturb his plans. But it may be considered certain that he has opened negoti.  ations on the subject with the Dent family  . Recknti/t, in one of the. Virginia Courts,  the Grand Jury, as is uow usual Iv the case.  vafl composed partly of'negroes.

JEAN BOULANaEttV FOR MURDKK.f ;  The trial of Jean Bonlanger, alias John  Baker,-for the murder of the Chinaman, Ah  Mow. was concluded to-day..  Frpiri; the evidence for the p rose c it tioti ,"w hi ch was pri n ci������  pal!y Chi nese, 1t. appeared "that an h6u r pr  two before the murder Baker had gone into  a Chinese house of ill-fame, and had been  ta r bed ;on t* by the ;p roprieto r of 4be hoiise,  two women, and;Ah Qnvlhe principal;witness  iu the case.   The witnesses, however, varied  materially tn the prosecution ���������; Ah On stating  that there was a hrap/iti the halt lighted, and  be did not assist it|piUting the prisoner out,  while the proprietor ^ swore  that tb ey we re al 1; requi red to he) p ; a h d t he  former said ifcher^^as^noSiight^and all lie  could see wasjhatit waBa^wflite man., but  he didl^npt linpw who. %After this prisoner  went tola8alpon,Jand was ^afterwards left at  the dpprbfius own,hpuse by Chifef Constable  Lindsay.being then the wpr^^Ll^lior but  perfectly quiet* and J good-humored; iAh On  swore Ihnt he*heard deceased^cry murder,  and on going to: the/spot saw tlie body and  prisoner ?.Unding by it; he accused .prisoner  of 1 he iniirder ;���������" the I att'er then rah off, and  w i tn ess ra n to��������������������������� 1 ook for a p 6 li ee man.   The  witness was severely cross examined and con-  trad ieted his depositions ,made at, the Corph-  er* Inquest and preli^  ni any ��������� points.   He had previously sworn that,  h*������ was ab oi 11 n i ne feet o ff' ��������� down street, and  sa^Wiprisoner stab deceased;twicerrfirst above  collar bone and .then in .the belly ���������whereas  there was only the first wound1 found,   He  no w swore that he came out of the backdoor  of the house and round by a-passage to the  8* reet i and; w as com in g d a w n y when the m a ii  was kill ed,' but he did not .see .prisoner stab  him ; the latter, lie now swore, was standirig,  while previously he swore; he was kneeling  ���������by-the body*.A-A riother.Chinese: \yitness, who  . had previfHi^iy sworn.; that he. saw .prisoner  kilt d eeeased by st ab hi n g li i m Xw ice, * n b w  co n trad i c t e d ! h Is: for mer res t i m p ny)l he h ad  seen a--white, manrnnning; off but could not  i( 1 ent i fy li i m.

M r J dp i\V o I m e re testi Bed that he w as  sleeping at Cuuio's hotel in a double-bedded  room, and that he was awakened by a noise  at the room door; asked who waB there, when  firisouer asked if there was a bed in the room ;  told tiira there was; recognized Baker at first  by his voice.; and when he came into the room  '���������by the light from front window;  he was intoxicated v he took off his boots and coat and  vent to bed ; he then asked several times  who I was, and was Ta Chinaman ; not wishing to have any conversation with him I made  no reply ; be said, he was not afraid to tell  his name���������he was John Baker the Frenchman ;  I told htm to be quiet or leave the room ; he  afterwards got up and,;felt round the room,  Haying be wanted to see if the door was  locked, and if;any one came in he would kill  them;  he then went back to bed and fell  asleep.   Chief Constable Lindsay.; accompanied by  Messrs. Byrnes and Green, arrested  Baker in bed.   On being awakened and told  the charge, he said, * I hurt nobody;" in his  coat pocket was found a clasp knife, wet and  clogged with tooaoco and bread crumbs ; it  bore no marks of blood, and there was no  blood on liiai body or on the sheets of the bed.  but some on the sleeve of his coat; on the  way to Richfield prisoner made some remarks  to Mr Byrnes about the Chinese, cursing them  and saying that he bad had a row with them  the previous evening. The nature of the  wound was explained by Dr. Cbipp ; he did  not think the clasp knife found was sharp  enough to make so clean an incision. Dr.  Belt thought it might. A plan of the scene  of the murder and the different localities  where prisoner was seen on the night in question, drawn by Mr JoBSph Hunter, C.E., was  produced.  For the defence, it w.as proved that Ah On  had gone into the St.George saloon to inquire  for a policeman, at which time there was  blood on his hands and face; this he accounted for by saying he bad fallen in the  snow while running down street. It was also  proved that on 1st November, two days previous to the murder, prisoner had hauled  some goods on his sleigh to Mosquito, among  which there was 38 lbs. of fresh beef, with  which, the road being bad in places, it was  probable his arm would have come io contact. The reason for Baker going to Cunio's  to sleep was explained by Mr Smith, who  Bleptin bis house.   A friend of Bakers had j He bad no personal  desire  come from  $MYbteri<M������  witness,that he, wouId go i o CiiiiTi>"s io sleep.  as bis fed was tto.narrow. fo r; himself a n<I his  friend ; the latter went back to 'A tiller-, next  atter^npon'r^UTBjiker having been��������� out all day  was not awa re of the fact ��������� M r Rn nter' was  recal led to prove: the d is iah ee from' th e p hi ce  where.

A  number pf witnesses, including several of  those for the prosecution, were exaihtned as  to Baker's previous character, all of whotn  spoke of his reputation fur honesty and peaceful ness in the highest terms. Some;of the  withesges had 'known him. in .^Cariboo, siiice  ?62, and -though he had occasionally been seen  intoxicated before, he bad. always been in  very ;gopd humorrT;- >< y t ��������� ��������� -y.wAr} $ w: ������������������  fir: WaikemJJ^r^TO defence/made a very  able speech, occupying about anfhouf' and "a  half.

There was no blood either on prisoner's arm  or on the sheets when arrested, and his coat  enh* was dry.
