TSADS WITH CANADA. The Dominion Board ot Trade con cluded its annual meeting at Ottawa yes terday. At this session the subject of international traffic between that country and the United States received considera attention. From the discussion which proposition advocating reciprocity has elicited, it it evident that there is a strong sentiment in commercial circlet in the Dominion favorable to a renewal ol reciprocal trade relatione, while among the manufacturers strong opposition la man! tested to the removal ot any of the duties restrictions on American imports. The reason for this diversity of opinion easily found.

The shipping and the grain interests know very well that it is tof their advantage to cultivate closer re lations with the Western States. From that source the bulk of their business must come. The fewer legal barriers existing between the two countries the better opportunity there will be for attracting the grain trade to Canadian waters. The success of 'the Enlarged canals, which are costing the Dominion so much money, depends on the diver sion of the" Western carrying trade to these new channels. On the other hand Canadian manufac turers know by a hard experience that they are not able to carry on a successful competition with their older and more experienced American rivals, unless the home Government interferes in their be half.

A duty of ten or twenty per cent. on American products protects the Cana dian manufacturers Jo that extent. It Is very natural, tnereiore, mac tney snouia fight hard to retain the tariff. But in a matter of this kind the greatest good of the whole country should dictate the line of policy for the Government to pursue. THS CUBAN REBELLION.

Upon the first page will be found the correspondence submitted to the House of Representatives by Mr. Secretary Fish upon the relations between this Govern ment and Spain towards the Cuban in surrection. There is no "smell of war about it. On the contrary, the people have cause for congratulation that in an emergency of such a grave nature the President and his able Secretary are men of ability, moderation, integrity and unsullied patriotism. The published letters of advice to the American Minister at Madrid, are only more detailed expositions of the views which have controlled the Administration, as the people have been informed through the President's messages.

There has been no desire whatever to unneces sarily interfere between Spain and her colonies. The utmost caution has been taken to avoid even the appearance of according belligerent rights to the insur gents. But It appears that for a long time Spain has been made to understand that the United States did not look patiently upon a struggle conducted as the rebellion has been. Very significant hints have been thrown out that intervention might soon be expected, and positive declara tions have been made that the rights of American residents on the Island must be no way treapassed'upon. The House called for the correspon dence, and the prompt compliance, and production of all papers that can be pre sented without prejudice to public inter ests, must satisfy the people that they have safe and patriotic men at the head of the Government- They need have no fear that the Administration will needlessly provoke hostilities, or that it will abstain from a firm vindication of the country's dignity whenever the proper time and the necessity may arrive.

STATE PBIS0N REFORM. Our Albany correspondent writes that the Committee on State Prisons do not purpose to have an investigation at this time. Their object is to visit the several Institutions and see whether an investiga tion is desirable or necessary. Is not this taking two bites at a cherry The statistics in the reports of the Prison Inspectors prove that investigation is needed. The system of management is all wrong.

There is no reason why the prisons shouli not be in a great measure self-supporting. In place of that they are annually increasing the cost of the main tenance of each convict. Clinton prison last year cost the State about $196,000 above what was earned in it. There seems to be little effort to make the balance sheet tell adifferent story. We have before this published the statistics of the Sing Sing prison and showed an enormous in crease of expense with a proportionate but Incomprehensible decrease in earnings during the past decade.

As for the discipline at the Institutions, there could not be much stronger evidence given of its laxity. What must be the Internal administration of a prison where for several weeks one of the convicts is able to run a whisky-still and do a good business by the sale of the liquor What must the rules of a prison be where six convicts can mature and carry out a plot tor simultaneous escape add the capture of a locomotive from a freight train? This could not have been a sadden move. and how under anything like good disci pline conld the consultation requisite for the success of such a plot have been held? It does not seem to be a difficult matter for prisoners to escape. Daring the past months a murder was committed within the walls of one of the prisons. These are all facts.

They are sufficient themselves to justify examination. Is it not a work of supererogation then for a legislative committee to visit the several prisons with the ostensible object of find ing oat whether there is anything to investigate? Of coarse there is, and no time should be lost in going at It? The western inflationists are becom ing quite aggressive. Several greenback conventions have been held and others are to be held. The State Grange of Indiana met in convention at Indianapolis recently and called upon Congress to repeal the resumption act. Also it condemned the national-bank law.

The Illinois Farmers Association, which concluded a session at Bloomington on the 20th, adopted a reso lution demanding the withdrawal of all national-bank note and the substitution therefor ot greenbacks, which shall be made a legal-tender for all debts except the interest on the gold bonds. An infla tion, meeting hat been held In Michigan and another in Ohio. Numerously-signed petitions have alto been forwarded to Washington from all parts of the West and South. These efforts axe evidently having their effect on the Democratic majority. Men who were elected as uncompromising enemies of Inflation, are now rated aa very uncertain on the currency question.

It is almost certain that another effort will be made before long to repeal the reeumptioa act. Some FBIKNDS of the Centennial Ex position sure acting very unwisely in the House. They will make a great mistake If they attempt to exciteparty prejudice.

The annual report on the condition of the British army shows that out of 24,898 recruits inspected, no fewer than 7.079 were rejected. The returns show that, however true it may once have been that Ireland waa the recruiting ground for the Brltish.rmy, it does not now furnish its proportion; though In this respect it did better last year than In some preceding ones. Out of each reerutte last year England and Wales furnished 76.2; Scotland, 76.2; Ireland, 153.4Jand colonies and foreign countries, 8.4. Tjfie proportion in Scotland is very low indeed, and it is stated that the supply of men IJpere Is becoming exhausted.

There is a proposition before the Assembly to appoint a committee to'ln- quire whether a reduction can not made in the salaries of Che State Judges, What folly it is to attempt to economize this direction? That the State can secure such able men as it does for the meagre pittance they receive, is cause for hearty thanks. It is worse than a blunder propose to make their hire still less worthy of their labor.

We sug gest as one step proper to be taken against the late Mayor, its republication of the two opening sentences of his inaugural and the short clause ot the Charter which defines the Mayor's duties.

In that message he declared that he was chosen by the people for the eipress purpose of securing a "thorough Investigation" of the city's affairs, including the Treasurer' office: and the Charter shows that he had abundant power, and that it was his plai duty to Institute such Investigation. Let the Courier second our efforts to fix the proper responsibility upon the ex-Mayor, by printing these proofs of his dereliction. and then we will cheerfully aid It in placing the proper degree of responsibility upon the minor officials, and the more readily that It does not seem itself to be able to do anything practical towards that end. The Courier suggests as the proper punishment of a Republican official "whose presumable neglect of duty haa already cost the City many thousand dollars," "at least $150,000 of the people's money as It elsewhere states that he should be requested to resign, or at least withdraw temporarily from the office he now The Courier draws it entirely too mild. If it can prove that what it states presumably Is true, we shall not be satisfied with so light a punishment for the Comptroller.

Give him all that the law will allow, say we! Don't wait for him to "resign" or withdraw." Impeach him! Remove him! Indict him! Try him! Convict him Sentence him But first let the Courier furnish some tangible evidence upon which to proceed against him. We really cannot consent that any Republican, lately or now in office, who has been actually criminal to the extent which the Courier says is presumable," shall be let off so lightly as it proposes. If we should consent to It, probably the Courier would thereupon insist that the Democrat should go scot free, "under whose administration of the City's finances Treasurer Bork continued his system of embezzlement," until the $150,000 defi ciency (not discovered by the aforesaid Comptroller) bad grown up to the enormous sum of And also that similar Immunity should shield the late Democratic Mayor, by his own avowal, was elected for the very purpose of Investigating the City's financial affairs, and whose worn duty it was, with the power In hand, to discover the defalcation and prevent a continuation of it The Courier it really too clever by half. We cannot agree with it in a course that would shield two Democratic ex-offlcialts from the just consequences of their dere lictions, In order to save one Republican official from deserved punishment. Our motto Is Let no guilty man escape A GOOD MOVE.

On the 10th inst. Assemblyman Gal lagher of this city 'Introduced in the House a bill which may result In a double good. The preamble directs attention to the fact that a large number of worthy persons are out employment and in needy circumstances, and that the weather dur ing the Winter thus far has been so mild that worn on the canals conld he prose cuted cow as well as in the Spring. The resolution direct the State-Engineer to report within two weeks whether certain ordinary repairs can be made without delay so that work for the needy may be provided In this way. It it clear from the wording of, the reso lution that it points at the work ot clean ing and bottoming-out the canal, to the necessity for which the Commercial hue frequently directed attention of late.

A large amount of work has to be done every Spring to prepare the canal for nav igation. The accumulations and deposits of the previous year must be removed. Bat In consequence of the very short time between the disappearance of ice and the opening of navigation, the work is done hastily and In a superficial manner. Thus, large amount or sediment is never re moved from the channel, greatly to the detriment of navigation. When the water is a little low, or the wind happens to blow strong up or down the canal ao as to drive the water into either end of the levels, the boat literally drag through several Inches of mad.

AH this difficulty might be obviated by thoroughly cleaning out the channel. Moreover, there are places where the prescribed depth seven feet of water has never been provided. The State ad vertises a canal seven feet in depth by fifty-six in breadth at the bottom; but it it a false representation. Where the old bench-walls remain the channel It scarcely broad enough to allow two loaded boats of seventeen feet In width to pass one another. These shoal placet can be deep ened and the bench-wall can be removed now a well aa at any other time.

And the expense of thle greatly-needed work would be trifling when compared with the advantage which commerce would derive from it. In fact the losses and de- lava that resulted from these obstructions to navigation within a few years have cost very much more than the expense of this improvement. Aside from these commercial considera tions, there is a point which should have great weight with the Legislature when the resolution la called up. The Bute it in duty bound to do all in ita power for the relief of needy citizens.) Thousands of men are asking tor work, that they may be able to furnish the neeeatariea of life to their families. while it i ques tionable whether It would be proper the Legislature to authorize Improvements imply to provide labor for the unemploy ed, there can be no doubt that it would be justified in empowering the Canal Board to proceed at once with the ordinary re pair which moat be made before the opening of navigation.

Tha Dominion Government haa gone farther than this. After mature deliberation it was decided that the state of the exchequer would not permit of the enlargement of the Lachine Canal at present. Bat when it was found that the laboring classes of Montreal were in destitute circumstances thla decision waa reconsidered, extraordinary provision of fund was made, and the Improvement la now in progress.

coirsEQ tfEircsa. Despatches dated Dover, N. Thursday, the 20th, announce that a -gentleman was mobbed, property destroyed and probably persons injured in that place, the only cause of the riot being that a lecture had been de livered on Romanism in America. As this result, from an open discussion the Roman question, Is becoming frequent of late, it becomes all citizen who love peace. law and order, to inquire what is the best means of securing to every individual his per sonal safety in the exercise of that freedom of speech which every American holds to he his natural as well as constitutional right.

Shall the fanatical mob of faith-blinded zealots to be found in almost every locality In the United States be allowed to maltreat those who differ from them in opinion Shall a rabble incited by a bigoted priesthood hold the free citizens of this country In constant peril of their lives. when exercising one of the most precious rights tor which this nation sought its Jnde pendence and which became fundamental In its establishment The telegram does not disclose, in terms, what view of Romanism the lecturer took, or what was the sentiment which actuated the mob in attacking him; but past occurrences of a like kind leave but little room for doubt that the lecturer was opposing Romanism, and that the mob which attacked him and stormed the house wherein he had taken refuge, and against which the police were compelled to use their revolvers, was a Roman-Catholic mob. And we believe it has been uniformly the case, tor several years, that no man or woman has openly and publicly exposed the infamy In the practices, or the nefarious designs of Romanism in America, without becoming the subject of abuse In person or reputation, or property. Witness the hue-and-cry raised In all parts of the country against Edith O'Gorman the es caped nun, because she disclosed the shocking features of life in these living tombs of Romanism, pelted with missiles, traduced in her character, followed even in seclusion with all the vituperation that the most refined cruelty could devise. Witness the treatment of Father Gerdeman, of Philadelphia, because he left his moral imprisonment and declared himself a free man, shook off the chains ot Rome and followed the dictates of his own conscience.

Has there been any villiflcation too foul for Roman Catholics to apply to him? He was charged with crime, and was mobbed. and his life was only- saved by the police. Witness the Baron de Camin, a poor old man, for many years a Dominican, followed by abuse In his travels for disclosing the secret machinations, and frightful cruelties of this political-religious institution. He was mob. bed In Ogdensburgb.

Witness the Rev. J. G. White, a man who was never a Roman Catholic, and therefore under no imputation of trai-tortsm but he was followed by lies and slan der, mobbed In different places we believe, and i eggs were thrown at him in St. James Hall in this city the progress of a lecture.

Witness the Rev. DeWltt Talmafce whose house was set on fire, and himself threatened, by reason of his standing on the same subject. And notice the tact, further.that in all parts of the country wherever a peyion dares openly to denounce the vices of Romanism, or severs his connection with 4t, evil Is sure to come upon him, sometimes openly and sometimes secretly. It only requires observation to verify this, and no very retentive memory to know of all the more prominent example before cited. The question Is not whether such public riots and private abuse for such cause Is right or There can be but one answer to this.

But it ii a question for patriot to pon der, how wide-spread and how deep extends this reign of terror which crops out here and there In these riotous demonstrations, and is known to lie beneath this stratum of personal injury? Allow me to ask your readers, one and all. Do you feel just'as much at ease in the pres ence of a Roman Catholic to oppose Roman- Ism on principle, as you do in the presence of a Democrat to to oppose the Democratic party on principle It not, why? Is not one as open to discussion as the ether? Ha this system of foreign polities acquired such an ascendancy that it holds immunities not allowed to domestic politics? It so, it has become time for every citizen, in this Centennial year, ta renew the declaration of independence, to declare himself and the nation tree, as it ought to be, from the thraldom ot every foreign power whether England or Rome and to begin again wbsre our forefather began, with America first, last and always, with the undoubted right and unmolested privilege ot liberty, of conscience and freedom ot speech. To this end we should pledge our live, our fortune and our sacred honor." Colo. DOXIKI03 BOARD OF TRADE. Ottawa, Jan.

The Union League Club and other prominent citizenB urge the passage of this bill, but how it will be received by the magnates of Tammany Hall, against which institution it Is aimed, remains to be seen. After transacting some other business, the Senate adjourned to Monday evening. The House has been engaged this morning on resolutions to appoint more subordinates, all of which were referred to the Committee on Expenditures of the House. Mr. Hanson offered a resolution, with preamble, reciting that the directors of the DEL AW ARB HUDSON CANAL COMPANY had abused their powers to the great Injury of the stockholders, (the stock Is so high and so cioseiy new Dy prudent men that none Is offered on the Stock Exchange) directing the Railroad Committee to investigate, and for this purpose have power to send for persons, papers and the books of the company.

A resolution was offered that when the House adjourn it be to Monday night, when Mr. Strahan, who has once or twice assumed to be the leader on the Republican side opposed It, but it was carried. The THIRD BEADING OP BILLS was then 'taken op, and the bill repealing the Grey Nuns act read and passed, with only five or six negative votes. Next came the bill to Prevent Cruelty to Animals in New York Tork, by the throwiug of salt on railroad tracks, broken glass and nails in the streets, Mr.

Halllday moved to recommit, and have the bill printed, as it had been greatly amended, and members could not know for what they were voting. Mr. Strahan, who is unfortunately very supercilious In bis manner, again attempted the role of leader, and hoped the bill would not be retarded in its passage by the action proposed, and he proceeded to lecture Mr. Halllday (who Is a Dem ocrat) for hi temerity, doing that In a grandiloquent style. Mr.

Halllday replied, in a manner which must have taught Mr. Strahan that he had better relegate the leadership to Mr. Sloan, who from his position is entitled to it, and who is an affable gentleman. The motion of Mr. Halllday was carried, fig to 86, and Mr, Strahan tat down discomfited.
