The vulimr American canal has beaten the *< British river, through the instrumentality of our "] own demands. Englmid hereelt gives the virtual preference to the canal, by using it more than its [c showy rival. hi The Canadian authorities, differing as they d > P> on the question ??f Iree trade, and slightly disagree- ai ingas to the minor items of the calculation, agree vi in the opinion that Quebec cannot pretend to vie w with New York, or tne Canadian with the Amen- tn can settler, unless by repealing the navigation of laws, and so reducing the puce of freight at Que- r* bee. Whatever the comparative com of transport from the interior of New York and Quebec, it is nn evident that a ftich rats or a valuable rate of lei freight from Quebec to this country must seriously Mi clog the lattei in the arduous comjietitton. As the ru matter now stands. Quebec and all Canada are hu wellnigh beaten in the race New York, with its dy forestB of merchantmen within sight of the ocean, no is above a match for Quebec, some hundred miles tni up a difficult river, and futther shut up by restrictive laws. It ts now proposed to remove the dia- d* ability under which it now labors, and to permit di< ths Americans to bring us the produce of the P* interior by our own river, as well as by their own to canal. ?y Cabs and the United States. in El Naevmut, of Cadiz, of the 5th ultimo, has the Btt following statement regarding the rumors preva- foi lent a few month back, ot a contemplated sale of the island of Cuba, by the Sttanish government, to ho the government ot the United States:? ttv la ths session of Congress. bell at Madrid on the in 31st of January, on the motlsn of .Senor Moyaao, for to the production of all corresponds oos wbioh. according (h< to the proceeding* in Congress of the United States, tlv waa said to have passed, respecting the annexation of the bland of Cuba, his Excellenoy Senor Pidal replied ' that no proposition whatever htd been made to governstent for the pureba-e of the Hand of Cuba, and that ' 8 the supposed negotiation published in the United cle States newsptprrs. ?a* denied by his order, in the bel official Gazette ot Madrid, and at the same time lathe ^11 Perls journal*, by the Duke of Sotomayor.

The gy, city, slier having been ba'tered and bombarded by <> j nearly 150 pieces ot ordnance for a week, was taken on the 2d; the tort was expected to be storm- ^ ed on the 7ih inst. The Bombay troops joined n.. General tVhish on the 21st December. The tie- be seiging army now amounted to 15,000 British 8e| troops, the allies amounting to about 17,000, or uH 32,000 in all. The artillery amounted to about 150 DC pieces of ordnance, of which nearly one-half were uo of the largest calibre. On Christmas day and the bv day following ihe force changed ground: on the 27ih the troops advanced in tour columns to the ?rt attack, and, clearing the suburbs and driving in for the enemy en all sideB, established themselves wiP in 500 yards of the walls. Batteries were now r constructed in every direction, and on the evening of the 28ih a terrific cannonade and bombardment commenced. On the 29ih, the heavy guns wer* battering within eighty yards ot the ramparts. tre On the morning ?l the 30ih, the principal maga- I'0' zine id the tori blew up with a terrific explosion? 'iai nearly 800,000 Ins of powder are reported to have *'* been stoied in u?blowing a vast column of dust a "" thousand feet up into the air. The destruction it aD caused all round must have been tremendous. A mighty conflagration, supposed to be that of the principal stores, was now spreading in the town. "c . .?60,000 worth ot grain were afterwards found to a"V have been destroyed. The enemy's artillery slack- ,bl ened their fire, but still continued uns lenced. On 1,18 the next two days the cannonade continued: shell , were thrown sometimes every minute, sometimes |h' at intervals of ten minutes, and tearful salvos were }8 * from time to time discharged from the heavy ''ty batteries. A furious cannonade having been kept n>& up sit the previous night,on the morning ot the 2d a lor column ef Bengal troops, commanded by Colonel Franks, conei.ting ot her Mijesty'a 82d, and the f 49th and 72d N.

Scotland. Shocking Catastrophe at Glasgow?On Sarday evening, Feb. 18, about hali-pa9t 7 o'clock, le of tbe most fearful catastrophes that ever ocirred in Scotland took place in the Theatre Royal, unlopatreet. Very shortly after the perform inces ad commenced, an alarm was given that a fire ad broken out in the upper gallery, and as a matr of course, the audience, which was numerous i the gallery, became much excited. It was Boon apparent to the manager that the te had been occasioned by an explosion of gas, rid he. f mreiher with the members of his comoanv. sed their utmost exertions to reatore order, in hich they partially succeeded. Meanwhile, owever, the alarm had been conveyed to the cenal police ofliees, aud the fire brigade was very >on at the theatre, and immediately commenced perations, which had the eflect of increasing the itrs of the people, and a general ruBh was made i the door, in order to eseaiie from the fire, which id, in fact, been previously extinguished. Dsste all remonstrance, the people would be out, id the result was ths premature death of 64 indid n a Is, besides four more or less injured. It ould be vain to attempt to convey any iden of e scene which the theatre presented at the time the accident; that can be better imagined than pressed. The authorities were very soon at the theatre, id, while assistance was being procured, the gulry Btair was ascended, when at one of the landg places was discovered ascene of the most horying description?men, women, and children iddled together, trodden under foot, dead, and tngr The poor creatures were carried to houses joining, and every exertion used to restore anistion; but, unfortunately, these exertions were but few instances successful. Sixty-one were ad, and three sent to the Koyal Infirmary; two ed upon the wav, and one shortly after. Eleven rsons, slightly bruised, were able to be removed their homes, and others are still in the Iufirmain a dangerous state. The61 dead bodies were, the course of the evening, removed to the Clyde eet Hospital, and there kept till Sunday morning r identification. About 10 o'clock, the authorities were at the Bpitil, and it was arranged, to satisfy the relaes of the poor creatures who had been waiting hundreds around the hospital during the night, admit them. The bodies were spread out on 5 floor of the large shed, aud when each relae, father, mother, wife, or other friends, was ;ogmzed, their shrieks rent the air. Oae worn claimed three as her own. Without scarcely ingle exception, the sufferers belongto the lower ss of society, and are, for the most part, lads tween 14 and 17 years old; the only female loDgst the dead was one girl three years of age. \ gloom has been cast over the city by the fearoccurrence, which it will require 'some time to isipate. The theatre has sustained no damage m burning, as the flame of the gas pipe was al5t-1 instantly extinguished. The theatre was built in 1860. It is the most autiiul and extensive one out oi London.

New York State Lunatic Asylum.?We have >efore us the sixth annual report of the managers >t the above institution. It is highly interesting, ird contains a Urge quantity of useful inforoia:ion. It is a sir gular circumstance, that, in a list of the occupations pursued oy tnose who have become insane, the " farmers" prepondera'e over nil other jccupations, in the ratio of 400 to 1 or 2. This is lingular. We account for it by the following reasoning, viz.: that in this country the farmer generally ib almost as much a speculator as a stock jroker is in England. His great object is to make he largest amount of money in the quickest posable time. Rem facias, rem rect est possis?st ?owf moquomodo facias rem. Now, when this feeling eigne in a man's mind, we need not say there is langer of his going mad?we may truly say he is nad already. The age at which the greatest number of cases of nsanity has occurred, is from 20 to 25. This is not rery surprising, when it is considered, that at that igeyoung men arc naturally in a state of self-conieit and self-admiration, as also of wantonness and >odily luxuriancy, which is closely allied to insaniv. and if thev are not kept under stroqg check? ither the check of necessity or that of parents? hey will run into Buch excesses as will embitter he remainder of their days. There is a table in this report, of the supposed auses of the insanity of the several patients titli ng these causes, the most curious is that of ivo women, who are put down as having gone md for want of something to do! We think this very probable supposition ; but certainly, the umbers must be considerably under-rated. We re inclined to believe, that out of 100 cases of ealthy insanity, if the patients were kept at the read-mill ten hours a day regularly for a few lonths, so as to have plenty to do, 99 of them vould become sans quickly, and. there would not e c case of indigestion or cnnwt among them all. Omitting the cases proceeding from ill-health and sknown causes, the greater number ol insane perdps are the religious This cause is assigned as"regious anxiety." No one need be surprised at this, ormerly, when religion consisted in a sober, sound mutton io performing the whole duty of man, the iw of God, or the law of right, which is the ime thing, religion had the effect of making men ane and sober-minded. But in this day, when the tw of right and truth is out of the question, and vviiuium in iuic uivauio auu umiucian, c*? itfd feelings and humbug exercise?, instead of oing right and acting virtuously towards everyody, it is not astonishing that it acts quite contray to its Intention, and makeB men mad instead of lakmg them honest, viituoua and sober-minded. Vhen men despise the law of right, which is the iw of God, and the true performing of which is rue religion, they are on the road to go mad, for ley despise truth, justice, sound sense and real nderstanding, to follow dreams and visions, and re already half mad. Under the head of farm and garden, we peiceive complaint that the inmates want occupation, and nmi'lain themselves that they have not sufficient ndily labor. This is a serious thing, and ought nmediately to be attended to. If the necessity of ibor, and with it labor were to be removed trom le shoulders of men, the whole world, mad as it i, would be nothing but madness, and men would nmediately set to work to exterminate each ther. Only let ua reflect one moment. Let u ike one city for comparison. In London, abovs million of men rise from their beds every morn ig at dawn ?f day, to go to work?hard work? II evening. Now, take rway necessity, and throw i us million of men upon the town, with their ands in iheir pockets, and plenty t eat and drink, n the Founente plan, and nothing to occupy ] i?m, there would not be five hundred peop'e left live in London in five weeks' time. A million I men let loose upon London, with nothing to do, , ould be much worse than if amiliion of tigera 1 ere suddenly let loose upon the city. Hence it ] evident that though men cry out against the I lovidence ol God, in his government of the world, J r imposing such a law aa the law of necessity i ion society, yet it is a great mercy and protecon to ua all. We hope, therefore, the managers < ill apeedily find something to do for the inmates J the asylums under their management. There are some highly interesting remarks in 3 is report, upon the causes, the prevention, prog- t isis, and medical and moral treatment of in- * inity. We can only refer to theae observation! j i worthy of perusal. We conclude our brief re- * ew wnh ihe following opinion from the report, * F the truth and correctness of which we have no ? jubt:?

' 1 11 m * mn?? inn??i?? i New Yoke Police.?It cannot, we believe, ha denied that what New Yo-k ix mostly in nead ?>ft are c can *tre? is ai rt an efficient system of pol:c, iiriiht r of which i.av* we ever bven bles-ed with, lii lejiari' to the streets, we have qi vn up all h'i|i"l i f Mfi'ij ili> m clean again, and have determined that it i iim-I-?? to refer to the subject any more, at least so Ion* sa the people rema n as ap ttlitic as the) h ve been (or some year* oast on the aubjec'. Not so, however, with the system of police. Wo have it il <iur power to form a* efficient ^ muntoi pa] police eh ihbt posaeesed by any other city lA the wt r'd. The i reat fault in the present ay*t-m of polico is the shortness and uncertainty of the tenure of office. It is acknowledged by all who are at al acquainted with the subject, that, to be a good aad tfficient pol.ceman. a man must go through a ava tern oi apprenticeship, and tnat it requires a asr ( vice of at leaet three yeara to mtke him reltabla and available as a guardian ol the interest* cort* to Ki*n M..1e* tKia wriiiftiitinn if wa iluv iup the term, or training, cannot be obtained under ths present system, because the tenure of office is limited to two years; and re-appointment is so precarious, depending as it does ou political influence with the pMity that may, at the termination of his tenure, be in possession otthe cty government. It the policeman going out is of the same pa ty as that in power, he stands a chance of re-appointmeat; if not, none at all, and another is appointed in his plnee. Now, it is a, parent that, under such a system, our police cannot, in the nature of things, be efficient. They are made, ex tt<> enitiite ret, active politicians; a premium is h--ld out to them to take part in our municipal elections, and canvass and intrigue for the sucreBS of the party to which they would took tor re-appointinent with & probability of success. Another consideration is, that under the system at present in force, the very pr?-cannusness ot the tenure of office discourages the members of the police from taking an interrat in their business, and making themselves acquainted with the details of their duties, as well as with the haunts, habits, and rendezvous of the numerous thieves, burglars, and other scoundrels who infest our city, and are continually arriving from England and other countries. A policeman, if he is like his fellow men, of which there is every probability, will not undertake the trouble and labor of making himself fully competent for his office, if he holds it at the nod of politicians, and is subject to change with the revolutions in our city government. He will rather get through his duties as easily as he can, and with the least possible inconvenience to himself. It is obvious that this evil can be remedied very easily, and the manner in which tt can be done is apparent. Let the police be removed from ths political arena?let them have no direct personal influence in our elections?let not them and their families be depending for continuance in office, and bread for themselves and families, on the sue- I cess or defeat of any party. Let them be appointed ' du ing good behavior?subject at any time, for mal feasance or neglect of duty, to be discharged. If the system were thus modified, it would be the in- >. terestof every man in the department to become fa- j! miliar with his duties, and to make himself aseffi- |> cient as possible. We woyld then, lathe language of ' the committee of the Common Council, to whom the subject was referred, have a police that would seek to elevate the standard and chaiacter of its profession, and thereby secure to our citizens faithful guardians of their persons, their families, and their property?competeut and faithful men, who had attained sufficient knowledge of their duties 'o make them capable and efficient, would not be removed to make room for political favorites, whose only recommendation may be an influence with the party in power In our city councils. I Wc believe that a bill embracing some, or all, of ; these views, is before the Legislature, aud we hope it will become a law. If it piss, it will go a i good way in providing what we ought to have?as competent and efficient a body of police as any in 1 the world. > Tiik Only Expatriated Iuisumak of thx Irish 1 Reworks?Dr. McCarron, the brother-in-law of Charles Gavan Dufly, of the N<aiot% newspaper, I anived in this city on Monday last, on board the j! packet ship Hottmguer. There has not been a ( man in the whole young Ireland party more t savugely treated by the British government. Robbed, ruined, and cast into prison, he was there < detained lor four months, and at leiigth liberated , on condition that he should leave Ins native laud , for ever in twenty-one days. His friend, the , Bishop ot Deny?now no more?and his brother, Archdeacon McCarron, appealed to the Castle, requesting the privy council to alter the decision, or grant at least an extension of time, as Dr. | McCarron was unable to walk,from a severe rheu- , matic attack, brought en by his confinement in a , cold, damp room, which had been unoccupied for eighteen years, and in whicn tnerc were neither shutters nor glass, nor any thing between him and | the elements, save the iron bars of his prison. The crut I and heartless reply was, " that the condition cn which he was released shou.d not be abandoned for a single day." Dr. McCarron challenged the , government to bring forward any thing against him that would justify their vile proceedings. His brother sought an interview with tnc Lord Lieu- < tenant, which was declined by Clarendon. No .1 ground was assigned, no cause was alleged, for '' all their harsh proceedings; and he has now landed on our shores, the only one sentenced by the 1 British government to perpetual banishment. It is almost superfluous, theretore, to add that such aa 1 accumulation of unheard of wrongs, apart from 1 his eminent professional abilities as a medical man, give him a claim upon our citizens, which we are sure will be responded to by every one who hates oppression, and 1a capable of appreciating the merits ot so distinguished a physician.
