Times is one of the most remarkable incidents of the war. Our Southern people have not demeaned themselves unworthily in seeking the recognition or sympathy of Great Britain. Our tone towards that people and Government has rather breathed defiance than entreaty. We considered ourselves masters of the situation being fully as ableefits to confer fully equivalent to the benefits we might receive. We recognized the embarrassments which her large vested interests at the North imposed upon Great Britain, and we were not impatient of that recognition and renewed intercourse which we knew to be inevitable, but which we also felt must be delayed for a time. on which our Commissioners would receive — not from the British Government, which we know would be formal and probably not even public — but from the people of Great Britain. The vulgar vituperation of the Times has not at all changed our expectations in this behalf. We are at a loss to know what influences could have led tha
he cites, as an evidence of this principle, the privilege which the United States enjoy of transporting troops across the Panama Railroad through New Granada, and it is thus deemed only right by our Government to accord the same privilege to Great Britain, France, and all other friendly nations. Assuming that there was no danger to be apprehended from the passage of the English troops, and assuming, farther, that despite the "popular asperities" manifested in Canada and in the British Isles again this country, Great Britain is still to be regarded as a friendly Power, he saw no reason for with holding permission for the passage of her soldiers and munitions. These Grand Trunk Railroad, which runs through United States territory, he considers as a monument of the friendly disposition of England, and the reciprocity treaty with Canada he regards in the same light. If, however, the State of Maine should have any objection to the instructions of the State Department, Mr. Seward s

But the three hundred and fifty miles of railroad which would have to be built would cost fully $30,000,000--more than either the Province of Great Britain cares to spend in cold wood The road would pass so close to ironer of the United States in some places that in the event of war it would be very easy for American guerillas to destroy it. It will seem, on your side of the line, preposterr lasts in the United States, the State of Maine, and especially the town of Portland, will occupy a position of peculiar peril. It was lately stated by a British officer, whose opinions were entitled to respect, that had war resulted from the Mason Slide; imbroglio, Portland would have been in the possession of the British within fifteen days after the declaration of war; and further, that it would never have been given up so long as Great Britain held a foot of territory on this continent.
and Gulf a region grand enough for the seat of a great empire. In its wheat fields in the West, its broad ranges of the chase at the North, its inexhaustible lumber lands, the most extensive now remaining on the globe — its invaluable fisheries, and its yet undisturbed mineral deposits, I see the element of wealth. I find its inhabitants vigorous, hardy, energetic, perfected by the Protestant religion and British constitutional liberty. I find them jealous of the United States and of Great Britain, as they ought to be; and, therefore, when I look at their extent and resources, I know they can neither be conquered by the former nor permanently held by the latter. They will be independent, as they are already self-maintaining. The policy of the United States is to propitiate and secure the allegiance of Canada while it is yet young and incurious of its future. But, on the other hand, the policy which the United States actually pursues, is the infatuated one of rejecting and s
