he reciprocity of feeling between Canada and the Yankees:

A correspondent of the Montreal Witness denounce in very sharp and decided terms the conduct of certain public men in Canada, in openly sympathizing with the Southern rebellion. He states that on one occasion a telegram was read in Parliament, announcing the defeat of the national forces, and that a dozen members greeted it with loud applause, Hon. G. E. Carter, late Premter, being among them. Many of these members have maintained a regular correspondence with leading rebels, have furnished them arms and munitions of war from Canadian ports, and acted as the medium of communication between them and Europe. The Grand Trunk Railway gave Mr. Vallandigham an extra train on his visit to Montreal. In the face of all these demonstrations, mainly led on by the Opposition party, the course of the Canadian Government has been moderate, friendly and conservative. We observe, by the way, that notice has already been given in Congress by Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, of a bill to abolish the Reciprocity Treaty with Canada.
