Our friends in Canada.

--The following toast was given in Hamilton (C. W.) on the 24th November, 1862, in honor of many Southern refugees, by Hon. R. J. Hamilton:

‘"Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States--The immaculate here and Christian statesman; may the God of Battles bless him and his cause."’

This was responded to by M. Winans, Esq., of Baltimore, Md.

Hon. W. McDonald. M. P., paid a glowing tribute to Stonewall Jackson. He compared him to the late Gen. Havelock, one of England's greatest Generals.

Gen. Wilson said: "With leaders like Davis, Lee, Beauregard, Johnston, and Jackson, the South must and will succeed; and it is the duty of our Government to recognize the South. They are bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh. We insist on their recognition.

This was the largest and most brilliant gathering which has taken place in Canada since the Prince of Wales's visit.
