by .the variety of incident and

abounded in these sharply donned sayings
and doings which, when the MI of them

collection of incidents perhaps more re.
makable than have been afforded by the
Witco of any other modern statesman.
The little rebellion in the Selkirk-set
Cement, on the Red,River, north of Min.
nesota, is likely to result in a dismember-
meat of the British empire in North
America. This is a detached settlement,
having no direct communication with
Canada, =d'art only be reached through
Hudson's Bay or through the United
States. There is to predicable road
through the region lying between Lake
Superior and Hudson's Bay, : which sew
rates the Canadian Dominion from the
extensive region which stretches from
Lake Winnipeg to the Rocky Mountains,
and from the northern boundary of the
United States to the Arctic Ocean.
For 'more than a century all this teal.
tory has been under the 'way of the Hud.
son's Bay Company, whose sole interest,
policy and rule centred in the fur trade.
Li 1819 Lord SELXIIRK established a small
colony on the Red river, a few miles
smith of the head of Lake Winnipeg.
The original colonists were principally
Scotch; bat some Canadian French, sad
half breed Indians attached tnemaelyes
to the colony; and for many years they
have lived there like a congregation of
hermits, having very little intercourse
with the Waldo world. ;Until Alinnesota

came in from England but once during

and good roads. Its commercial and so
cial relation!, therefore, are and always
must be with the United States. Its po
litical relations are now in cusperite. A
few Months ago the Canadian Govern
ment appointed one McDougal Governor
Of this, detached province ; but •when he
went there the people, or a majority of
them, repudiated the authority of the Ca
nadian Dominion, 'and would not anger
McDougal to exercise .the functions of
his aloe; and having no troops
to sustain Lim, he was obliged to Ile on
his Oars till he should be-either sustained
or recalled. It is said that he attempted
to originate a body 'of Indians to enable
him to capture the lint which the Ilion
-gents ,held, and crush the rebellion
Whether that wu so or suit we cannot
tell; lint nothing of the kind was done,
and now the little rebellion is beginning

without a blow it will be switched, into

It is not In the power of the Canadians
to'stop this movement, for they cannot
reach that country at all without, passing
through the territory of the United States,
which, of, course, will not be permitted.
Great Britain will not contend about it ;
for the country is of no value, either com
mercially or politically to her. By na
ture it belongs to this country, and will

contracted with the State for an
exchange of securities, which should
transfer theio bonds to the Allegheny,
receiving In return the bonds to the same
amount of the latter corporaticui, to run
twenty years from 1874 the same being
guaranteed •by both the Allegheny and
T'eunsylvania companies. The operation
was a good thing for all melee, but ew'
pecially so to the State, since It is thereby
the gainer In an absolute security of the
amount of the Erie debt, theretofore com
paratively worthless. The new bonds,
when made and delivered to the Atate,
stand pledged already to the Sinking
I Fund. •
The Canal ring now propose another
"exchange"—that the State shall turn
these bonds over, In advance, to the
Canal Company, taking In return its
bonds to an equivalent amount, secured
upon the work itself as enlarged and
completed. The Company would thus
get a solid value of 0,000,000, but what
the Elate would receive in payment for it
would depend, for its actual worth, upon
all the contingencies of the work. Aided
with this sum, and with such private
subscriptions as could be obtained, here,.
In Philadelphia, and abroad, the work
would be done, first paying off We
liens now binding the present canal'
at the price fixed by the owner, say at
par. The profit to the ring is expected to
be realised In the handsome margin,
half a million or more, between what that
lien is now actually worth, and perhaps I
may be contracted for, and the par price I
paid. To those pestles, it will be a mat
ter of no consequence whether the miler
gee canal payioreloes not pay ; they
expect to be paid for their exertions in
the mode here indicated.
This Is substantially the programme of
the confederates. It illustrates a ring of
more compact proportions and brazen
impudence than any of that imaginary
congeries of political schemes which. by
way of diverting the public attention
from their little game, the confederates,
through their organ, the journal which
has been alluded, to, have been assailing
with so much *basin clamor of late.

From Information received from Wash

of President Grant to recommend that
the nation shall, as a mark of gratitude to
the late Edwin id. Stanton, extend to his
family such earnest sympatby and•ma

There are various statements as to the

and he always lived hare in stood style

tary of War; tar that when. be lost the
latter dike, and it was proposed to raise
for him a pecuniary testimonial, he de.
dined it, giving the would-be donors to
understand that be was not anywhere
near tb destitution. It is said that his
house on H. street is valued at 4..50,000,
and that his life was insured for the same
amount. He had a valuable law library:
a part of which, his friends say, was sold
within the past year.. This is supposed
by some to indicate that he needed the
money derived from the ask; but It seems
to be the general opinion that his family
are left fn what are called "easy circum•
stances." Mr. Stanton, is reported to
have been the main contributor to the
livelihood of his mother, his sister, and
her family, at Steubenville, Ohio, for a
long series'of ram
It is ascertained that just before Mr.
Stanton left the War Department he sold
the largest nortlon of his law library;
which, in 1840, was the finest in this
country, which is now believed to have
been to get money to meet his ordinary
expenditures, and that since that time a

roc Jpeople who met him In ordinary

literally a God fearing man, and to what
an extent he believed In prayer. Rev.
Dr. Gray, late pastor of the E street
Baptist Church of this city, wbo
preached here today, related the follow—

course of his sermon: About two years

Boston, came on, and while hererequest.
ed me to accompany him in a visit to
Mr. Stanton. We went, and were very
cordially received by blm. Mr. Patton
addressed him and paid: "I have made
you% special staled of prayer and have
regarded you as the saviour of our cons
try, and I believe God his beard prayer
on your behalf." After congratulating
him on the noble stand he had taken dur
ing the war, the Services be bad rendered
his country, and also the stand he had
taken at that time; Mr. Stanton said:
"Gentlemen, I believe in God
and I believe In prayer, although
I am not a professor of rel.
eon in the common ecceptation of the
term; and when, during the war, I re
ceived disarnraging dispatches from the ,
I army, I would lock my door, spread out
the dispatches, and kneel down and pray
to God to save my country, and then go
and talk with Mr. Uneoln." Mr. Fulton
then said: "Mr. Stanton, this is an inter.
ester incident in the history of the war;
amt at liberty to repeat it f". He re
plied: "Not now. Were thin statement
made public under existing cirenmstan.
cu., my enemies would regard it as a bid
for the sympathy and support of the pray

am dead, then you may tell it." Just as
they were about to leave, Mr. Stanton rose
and locked the door,-and said: "Gentle
men, I would like to have you spend a
few raciauntrin prayer." Mr. Fulton in
his brusque way said; "Gray, pray."
Mr. Gray did so, and then Mr. Proton
prayed most earnestly for him. Daring
prayer Mr. Stanton wept like a child.
The Utica Herald says: He was in
spired by a master faith. When a lead:
tug journal referred to him as the organi

and declared that the "arm of the Lord"
led and sustained our...armies. To his
iron will was allied this entire trust in
Providence. Ideas, faith, will, expressed
themselves in unremitting detail of labor.
While to grumblers who were restive un

he should never leave the post of Secre

justified the saying current dating the
war, that his department exemplified per
The Columbus Statesman (Dem.) tap':

been appointed to a seat on the lynch of

. great object of
his lite's ambition was thus attained, yet
before a single official act had been done,
death claimed his as its own. We
believe, notwithstanding the arbitrarvacts
of Mr. Renton as Secretary of War, that
he would make a conservative judge, and
that none 'would interpose protection of
the law, to save the oaken from oppres

his death. We, knew him in the better

Of his action in the War Office, to his
nigh praise be it :odd, while others made
fortunes by swindling the Government,
Edwin M. Stanton remained poor. His
