Thomas lias but truly exprcfscd Iho sdHimcntti of a large portion of the Amer ican people, Lord Durham thonnli un successful in the objects of his mission has nevertheless left behind him cndnrinc me. nnrials of his enlarged and liberal views. His manifesto, on laying down tho insignia of ofi'ico, is an able document, replete with practical good sense. He looked at things in their true light he saw tho population of Canada alienated and ci-t ranged by the mismanagement of tho government, arms against a set of bnstard Hobadil's who were socking their extermination lie hoard their appeals to 1 1 1 sympathy of o genoroo people who had but just emerged from a successful struggle for self-government; and ho also heard the response conic back, L'tiihing and warm from tho hearts of free men, "God speed all who fijht for freo lorn!" And yet, seeing and knowing all Ibis, ho il d not, that wo nro aware, ever threaten to hang or shoot the sympathizers nor did ho talk of invading our territory with tho Coldstream guards! Ilo did indeed threaten to come and ecc us, to survey our glorious country, and witness tho wonders that half a century of Ircednm has wrought in llic new world. Wc regret that ho did not come. Most assuredly would he have boon cordially received by a plain people, who, disregarding tho artifi cial distinctions of the old world, arc I always prompt to pay homage to virtue and intelligence. That Lord Durham would have been successful in the object of his mission to reconcile the rcvnlutinnists.and save Canada a peaceable province of Great Hrilain, we do not believe. The thing is impossible. But that he might have done as much or more than any other man to ward that object, we fully believe. Dur ham was an Englishman, acting for the benefit of England, and therefore tould not have satisfied the people of Canada, We envy not his successor. A change was prcdicled ae positive in the uniform and I ho French Ministry, who would probably hold together no longer than until the meeting of the Chambers at Christmas. J'ho affairs of Iho Queen of Spain ap pear overcast with very ominous clouds according to the news by this arrival. The Carlists had gained one or two battles, and would it wns feared regain their ascendancy in La Mancha. The son of Dun Carlos, am) the princess do Beira bail joined the camp of the pretender. Tho Minister of the Interior had tendered his resignation to tho Q,nccn, and it was rumored by tho Journals in the Carlist interest that Gen erals Narvacz and Espartcro contemplated resigning also. It was rumored in the English papers that the armies of the Presidencies in India were being put in a slate of efilcioncy and readiness for service. Borne accounts stale that an English force had entered the ter ritory of Persia others that tho Schah had raised the seigo of Herat without any such hostile demonstration. The Emperor of Russia had a large forco in the field, which it was supposed was intended for Russia. The Viceroy of Egypt was paying the arrears duo to tho Sultan ol Turkey. English influence was dominant over Rus sian with tho Porte. The Engli-h fleet, onlhrSCtli August along with the Turkish, was then in the Dardanelles, and that it was fully expecicd that tho English would pass into the Black Sea to watch the move mcnts of the Russians. The ex minister of the interior Akif Pacha, had been sharply remonstrated with for having re ceived the Russian Ambassadors at hi residence. There is a yory strong and general im. prcssion in llic commercial circles that the French blockade of Mexico is about to be brought to a closo.

Among tho invited guests, our townsman, Col.

It was seri ously talked in Montreal that Bullcr ounht to bo arrested; and it seems that even General Clilhcrow is given to understand that "he decs not possess the confidence of tho British and Irish population of that city."

Mr. Ellico, who was hut lately a captive in the hands of his own tenantry, has expressed hini'.olf in somewhat similar languago, and styled tho rebels a very good sort of pcoplo, hut that some of them liavo been awlully ungrateful, as ho was taken prisoner by individuals who depended on him for their daily bread. Major General Chthorow coincides in opinion with his two Whig Radical brethren, and wc can assuro tho triumvirate, that they do not possess the confidence of the British and hish popir lation of this city. BERMUDA EXILES. Wolfrcd Nelson, Bouchette, Vegic and Gauvin. arrived in this viilagc on Monday. During the forenoon a large number of our citizens called to pay their respects, and it is unncccstary to odd, wero very kindly received. Dr. Nelson loft at one o'clock for St. Albans, and on stepping aboard the coach he was greeted with three sponla ncous hearty cheers.

F () R E I f : N . The Great Western nrrived at N. York on tho 13th, bringing Liverpool dales to the 2Cth Oclnbcr. J'ho intended resignation of Lord Dur ham, received in England by the Great Western, was the leading newspaper topic. The-Conservative journals consider it the "consummation of Whig stupidity," tho Whigs throw tho whole onus of tho blame on the interruptions of tho Tories, while both unite in considering tno Provinces thrown back into confusion by tho event.' It was reported that n short session of Parliament would be immediately held, in consequence ol Lord Durham's resignation, of which intelligence was carried out by tho Great Western. Seven lives wero lost in ono nf Ihe salt mines at Northwich, in 'Cheshire, by ihe giving way of ono of the foundalions, in conscqnencu of which the engine house nnd nil its contents wero precipitated into the abyss, burying tho seven men and sev eral horses beneath the ruins. Sir Robert Grant, Governor nf tho Presidency ol Bombay in British India, died at Daporcc on tho Oth of J'lly. THE MORMON WAR. There seems to be every probability that tho State of Missouri is about to be dis graced with a bloody and ferocious civil war, more disgraceful than any thing which has occurred within our limits since the United States existed os a nation. The ferocious fanaticism of t. lie Mormons seems to be just about upon a par with Iho ferocious prejudice and inlolercnce ol their Missouri neighbors; & in Ihe collii-ion which seems nbout to lake pin co. much blood shed and terrible cruellies are lo he apprnliPiidetl. The project seems lo be to nnniltilulc iho Mormons. That however, is easier said than dune. They will die gaun'. The following is a summary ol the latest intelligence : Wo have the St Louis papers of Nov an, which are tilled with important new ndalivc lo tho Mormon Jir-l urbo nccs in Mipsoun. Tho most authentic news at hi.

A letter dated Richmond, Oct. -24. writ ten by a Jinlgo King, says that on the pre vmiH buiiilay I ho Mormons marched Daveiss, Jo Smith mado known Ins view lo the people, and declared the tnno had come when they would avein'0 their ow wrongs, and that all who wore not fo ihem, nnd taken up arm with them, should bo considered ns against them, that their property should be confiscated and their lives also bo lorfeitcd.

Their escape from the ciiadel is almost miracti- mis. I ho number of seii'inels pnsied within and nrnuiid the citadel was no h"s than thirty nine.

At leng'b Ihey met with n bolter friend than tho element, in the person of n cockney sentinel an elegant cxlrnCt from Newgale who was marvel lously fond of beer, or, in lieu thereof, ortrEn. Ho was dru2ed to Ins heart's content, and porter had its perfect work, nml while he was snoring in n door-way, the prisoners, who were in what is called the second casement, removed a bar from their window, and descended inido tho outer wall, which surrounded thu citadel shell. As the sentinel was perfedly oblivions, they easily mounted the wnll on the inside: nnd ihe only ililhciiHy was lo jet down, its exterior height being sumo Ihirty feet. They commenced descending hy the flag-statT, but their weight made it creak so much that Ihey feared it would alarm the sentinels, and they concluded to rop down, in doing which Ihey received evcral severe bruises. They had still ten sentinels lo nvntd, before I Imy could reach a place of safely anion!; the inhabitants. Nine Ihey eluded, but Iho tenth challenged them, but ho was satisfied with an indifferent answer, ami tliev trained a shelter ; but upon a chnngc of guard, the condition of the beer Ioviiil' sentinel was discovered, and soon after the escape of the prisionors Instant search in every part ol the city was commenced, nil the prisoners Unit to ctiango nieir hiding place five limes before morning. In a day or two, the impression prevailed that they had mado their escape to Mon treal, where a rigorous search was made for them, but they actually remained three weeks in Quebec.

The Diocese of Western N. York commenced its primary convention in Trin ity Church, Geneva, Nov. 1st, and, alter due form and organization, proceeded to business. Resolutions were drawn up and adopted, setting forth Ihcir firm wishes to place the dioccc of Western New York under the full Episcopal charge authority of the Rt. Rev. Benjamin T. Ondordonk. But this appointment having been declined at the opening of the convention, they pro cecded to a further election. Alter doc balloting, the tellers made known the re sult, and it was declared that the Rev. William H. Do Lancy, of Philadelphia, was duly elected. Motion was then made that tho Rev. Mr. Do Lanccy bo unanim. omlij elected Bishop of the Diocese of Western N. York. The manner in which this resolution was passed, says the Gos pel Messenger, tho unvaried fulness nnd distinctness of the aye, and the nbsonco of a nay, proved that we wore a house at unity in itself.
